Police Officer Under Investigation After Footage Said to Show Him Groping Dead Woman

Police Officer Under Investigation After Footage Said to Show Him Groping Dead WomanA Los Angeles police officer has been placed under investigation, a police spokesman said Wednesday.Body camera footage was said to show him groping a deceased woman's breasts, according to a person familiar with the case.The unidentified male officer was not working while the case was under investigation, Josh Rubenstein, the department spokesman, said.The officer had been assigned to the Central Division and was responding to an overdose call, he said. Rubenstein declined to provide specific information about the incident, including when it occurred, because it is part of a personnel investigation.Supervisors throughout the jurisdiction conduct random reviews of video on a monthly basis, Rubenstein said.All uniformed officers assigned to patrol the Los Angeles area have cameras, he said, and roughly 7,000 cameras are issued."If this allegation is true, then the behavior exhibited by this officer is not only wrong, but extremely disturbing, and does not align with the values we, as police officers, hold dear and these values include respect and reverence for the deceased," the board of directors for the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the police officers' union, said in a statement on Wednesday. "This behavior has no place in law enforcement."Police departments around the country have increasingly used body cameras after several high-profile shootings. In 2015, about 95% of large police departments started using body cameras or said they would use them in the future, a national survey said.A 2017 study of more than 2,000 Washington, D.C. officers conducted over 18 months showed officers with body cameras used force and prompted civilian complaints at nearly the same rate as officers without the equipment.A Baltimore police officer was suspended and charges against a man were dropped after a body-camera recording appeared to show an officer planting a bag of drugs at the scene of an arrest in January 2017. In that case, the camera retained recordings beginning 30 seconds before it was activated.In November 2018, The New York Times published body-camera recordings of an arrest in Staten Island that raised questions regarding police behavior. In this case, lawyers for the defendant claimed the footage contained possible proof that an officer planted a marijuana cigarette. The officer and the Police Department denied any wrongdoing.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company

Jeffrey Epstein: CCTV footage from outside jail cell ‘unusable’ as FBI hunts for clearer recording

Jeffrey Epstein: CCTV footage from outside jail cell ‘unusable’ as FBI hunts for clearer recordingAt least one camera in the hallway outside the cell where authorities say registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein hanged himself earlier this month had footage that is unusable, although other, clearer footage was captured in the area, according to three people briefed on the evidence gathered earlier this month.It was not immediately clear why some video footage outside Epstein's cell is too flawed for investigators to use or what is visible in the other, usable footage. The incident is being investigated by the FBI and the Justice Department's inspector general's office, which are attempting to determine what happened and how to assess whether any policies were violated or crimes committed.

Dayton shooting: Man shields girlfriend from attack as Ohio gunman opens fire in unseen footage

Dayton shooting: Man shields girlfriend from attack as Ohio gunman opens fire in unseen footageA man seen in videos using his own body as a human shield to protect his girlfriend from gunfire during a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio over the weekend has recalled the harrowing experience in an interview Thursday morning. Camryn Crowder grabbed his girlfriend and fell to the floor on Sunday as a gunman shot up a popular area for nightlife in the Ohio city just yards away. He can be seen in video clips holding onto the woman as others attempt to flee from the scene. “I saw people getting hit. I literally saw them fall,” Mr Crowder said. “I was certain that I was going to be next in line, really, at some point.”Mr Crowder can be seen at one point moving his girlfriend towards a section of the sidewalk that appears to be partially walled off, while steadily checking to see if the shooter was still nearby. He later helps his girlfriend up and the two quickly escape when the scene is clear. “I was pretty nervous,” he told CBS News. “It was really about me getting her out of the way … making sure that she was safe.”Police said Connor Betts killed nine people when he unloaded his weapon on the Dayton street, before he was eventually shot and killed by responding officers. “It was just a trail of bodies laying there,” Mr Crowder recalled. “I had seen about four people that had gotten hit. Laying on the sidewalk and in the middle of the street.” Mr Crowder and his girlfriend both were unharmed during the mass shooting, which was just one of two back-to-back incidents nationwide over the weekend. In another reportedly unconnected attack, a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas on Saturday after posting an anti-immigrant manifesto to the online messaging board 8chan. Mr Crowder described himself in the interview released Thursday as “one of the lucky ones,” saying he was saved by “the grace of God”.

Unearthed NBC Footage Appears to Show Trump and Epstein Rating Women’s Looks at 1992 Party

Unearthed NBC Footage Appears to Show Trump and Epstein Rating Women’s Looks at 1992 PartyNBC NewsDonald Trump claims he never liked Jeffrey Epstein—but footage unearthed by NBC News certainly shows the two of them having a good time together.The 1992 video shows a wild-haired Trump with Epstein at Mar-a-Lago, apparently pointing at and discussing young women who are dancing close to them. The women were reportedly cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills, who were in town for a game against the Miami Dolphins.While their discussion is pretty much inaudible, at one point Trump is seen pointing toward the women and appears to say in Epstein’s ear: “Look at her, back there.… She’s hot.” Epstein appears to agree, then Trump says something else that makes Epstein double up with laughter.The footage was apparently shot for a talk-show profile of Trump’s lifestyle following his then-recent divorce. The party was thrown a decade before Epstein pleaded guilty to felony prostitution charges in Florida. The rest of the video shows Trump dancing exuberantly surrounded by women.The video is from the same year in which it’s claimed Trump hosted a party with a guest list made up of just himself, Epstein, and “28 girls,” which was reported by The New York Times.Trump said of his relationship with Epstein last week: “I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him .. I was not a fan.”However, Trump told New York magazine in 2002 that Epstein was “a terrific guy” and “a lot of fun to be with,” adding: “It is even said that [Epstein] likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” Trump has refused to reveal what led to a “falling out” that he claims to have had with the financier about 15 years ago.Federal prosecutors indicted Epstein this month, charging him with sex trafficking and accusing him of using his fortune to “create a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Ivanka Trump meeting with Kim Jong-Un revealed in North Korea footage, as excruciating G20 intervention prompts questions over her role

Ivanka Trump meeting with Kim Jong-Un revealed in North Korea footage, as excruciating G20 intervention prompts questions over her roleIvanka Trump joined her father at his historic meeting at the Korean border with Kim Jong-Un, a North Korean documentary has revealed.The “first daughter” can be seen in images broadcast on North Korean TV of the discussion between the US president and Mr Kim.The revelation Ms Trump was included in the talks will further fuel a growing controversy about the 37-year-old’s role in the White House.Officially, she is only an advisor to the president and has said her focus is on women’s economic empowerment and skills development in the workplace.But her participation in the high-level diplomacy of the North Korean summit came only days after she was seen taking part in the G20 conference in Osaka, Japan.A video released by the French presidency showed Ms Trump attempting to butt into a conversation between Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund.> Some new footage of Kim meeting @IvankaTrump and @USAmbROK pic.twitter.com/Pr7iwbdRJH> > — Oliver Hotham (@OliverHotham) > > July 1, 2019Ms Trump also featured prominently in official leaders’ photographs and was dispatched to speak to journalists after her father’s meetings with some of the heads of government present.Her G20 appearances have prompted widespread derision, with many questioning why Mr Trump had brought someone with no diplomatic or foreign policy experience to the summit and ridiculing her attempts to join discussions between world leaders.The excruciating exchange rapidly became a viral meme that saw Twitter users photoshopping pictures of the first daughter into iconic moments in history – including the Yalta conference where the Allies carved up post-war Europe and Martin Luther King’s famous “I have a dream” speech in Washington DC – under the hashtag UnwantedIvanka.Firebrand Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also attacked Ms Trump’s outsized influence.Tweeting the G20 video, she wrote: “It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.“It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”A former US ambassador to South Korea, Christopher Hill, said Ms Trump’s presence gave the impression America was a “constitutional monarchy”.“It says to our allies, to everyone we do business with, that the only people who matter are Trump and his family members," he said.Despite her governmental inexperience and lack of qualifications, Mr Trump frequently hails his daughter as one of his most trusted and skilled advisors.He has publicly mooted the idea of nominating her to become US ambassador to the United Nations or head of the World Bank, and said she would be “very hard to beat” if she chose to run for president.Before Mr Trump appointed her to her poorly-defined White House post, Ms Trump had mostly worked for the Trump family company and run her own Ivanka Trump fashion brand.Her father’s trip to Asia ended with an appearance at an army base in South Korea, where he called up Ms Trump to the join him and the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on stage and described them as a “beautiful couple”.
