Another Piglet fired

The Denver Post is reporting that Manager of Safety Charlie Garcia has terminated Detective Kenneth Briggle.  Briggle was a detective within the Traffic Unit.   Apparently, Briggle was found guilty of contempt of court during divorce proceedings…hilarious.  Still is curious though that this will get you fired, but cowardice pigs like the murderers of Marvin Booker remain on duty.  WTF?

By the way, Briggle is in our database.  He was known for having one of the greatest stashes on the force.  It will be missed.  By last count with Briggle gone that means 5 down and 1195 to go.  Keep ’em coming Garcia (disclaimer, we in no way support or are impressed with Garcia, rather he is just another tio thomas.)

So long Briggle, your mustashe will not be forgotten

According to the formal charging document in Amelia Nicol’s case, these are the current charges against her:

-Two counts of attempted murder (Felony 2)

-Use of explosives (Felony 2)

– Criminal mischief (Felony 4)

– Inciting a riot (Felony 5)

– Two counts of attempted third degree assault (Misdemeanor 2)

– Resisting arrest (Misdemeanor 2)

This is such fucking bull shit.   A fucking fire cracker, that’s right, we are talking about  some black cats, sparklers, child play shit.  These do not translate into a fucking molotov.  And what is the fucking proof that Amelia did any damn thing.  I’ll tell you what, for being the most violent gang in Denver, the DPD are a bunch of dirty lil’ cowards.  Claiming attempted murder over a fucking alleged black cat.  Shieeeeeeeeeeet.

For clarification:

This is what it looks like when cops are hit with molotovs. Greece I would Assume

This is what a sparkler looks like

Denver has paid 10 million dollars in Settlement money since 2002

ACLU has figured that Denver has paid out 10 million dollars in settlements concerning police misconduct since 2002.

Denver Deputy Sheriff Anne Kelly Charged with Assualt

The Denver Post is reporting that Denver Deputy Sheriff Anne Kelly has been issued with a summons charging her with 3rd degree assault.  Apparently, she slapped an “uncooperative DUI arrestee at the County Jail.”

I am not anti  deputy Kelly being arrested for slapping an inmate, but I am shocked.  How is that 5 deputies from the same agency murdered Marvin Booker, yet none of them were even terminiated, let alone crimminally charged.  WTF.

Drunk Popo Endangering Our Streets

Alcohol and cops are a scary combination.  Over the past 2 years we have reported on several instance of drunks ass pigs doing crazy shit.  Read here.

We have another one for the list.  The Westword is reporting that Denver Police Sergeant Phillip Newton was arrested  on Monday night following a car crash and was consequently charged with a DUI.

Turns out that Sgt. Newton was arrested for a DUI in Aurora in 2004. Read here

Newton faces a 16-42 day suspension.  It is unclear if it is a paid suspension.

ACLU Files Lawsuit on Behalf of Jason Kemp

The ACLU is reporting that they filed a lawsuit on behalf of Jason Kemp.  Kemp was murdered execution style in the summer of 2010 by Colorado State Patrol men.  Kemp refused to allow officers to enter his Grand Junction home with out a warrant.  In turn, Kemp was murdered in cold blood.

Glad to see the ballin’ ass lawyers at the ACLU are handling this case.

Our deepest condolences to the Kemp family.

Jason Kemp


Last Saturday night, the west side was flooded with yuppies and richies attending the U2 concert at Invesco field.  The area just so happens to be WDCW’s strong hold.  The next morning we were receiving calls from residents with what we thought was some sensationalized shit.  A cop ran over another cop.  Well, turns out it is true.  I’m sorry but I can’t stop chuckling.

Apparently, an officer that was directing traffic was badly injured when he was run over by a police cruiser that was transporting a prisoner.  No names have been released, but there is a good shot  the “victim” is in our database considering we have a solid chunk of DPD traffic cops.  For other Stoopid cop moments click here.


Another Scoundrel for the ever growing list of Creeping Scoundrel Pigs

7 news is reporting that Colorado Springs Officer Joshua Carrier was been arrested yesterday for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.  Investigators are alleging that Carrier is suspected of having sexual contact with several minors.

Turns out that Carrier was arrested last week as well for possession of child pornography.  Carrier is being held in El Paso County Jail.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this pinche pig is gonna have a tough time in jail, considering he is a cop and a child molester.  Shit tends to be frowned upon on the inside.

Our condolences to the victims and their family’s.

Sexual assault and child molestation appears to be a serious fucking problem within the ranks of Colorado Law enforcement agencies.   For proof click here

Multimedia Timeline of Police Brutality Begining with the Murder of Marvin Booker

Westword has unveiled one of the dopest items we have seen in a while.

Check it out here

Basically, it is a time line of events over the past year including, the murder of Marvin Booker, resistance to police brutality, lawsuits, etc..

Fuck Richard Rosenthal-Independent My Ass

Westword has an extensive feature article about the exploits of Richard Rosenthal, the Independent Monitor.  The article analyzes Rosnethal’s role as the Independent Monitor as well as attempts to address the current state of affairs of the DPD.

Let us just say right up front, FUCK RICHARD ROSENTHAL.

When asked a question in the article concerning the public perception and outrage toward the DPD Rosenthal says, “The reason we see these stories [referring to coverage regarding police brutality] is because we have a good police department, a good, transparent process, so the public can see the good, the bad and the ugly…. In Denver, we have one of the most progressive civilian oversight programs in the country.”

I mean, where to even begin.  Rosenthal is claiming that since the media “covers” police brutality cases that in and of itself is proof that the DPD is a good department.”  Such a fucking joke.  My question to Rosenthal, who after all would have these statistics is, what about the countless victims whose stories go either unreported and/or not presented by the media?

My other issue(s) with Rosenthal and the OIM is the perception that it is independent from the government.  Firstly, why is Rosenthal’s office on the 12th floor of the Webb building , which just so happens to be right next to the  City Attorney’s office.  Secondly, Rosenthal was appointed by the fucking mayor to his life long position, that’s right Rosenthal’s on some Qaddafi shit.  Thirdly, Why is it that Rosenthal really only seems to have issue when officers lie about excessive force, rather than having issue with the excessive force itself.  Finally, Rosenthal has no desire to share the burden of monitoring the police.  He is under the impression that his office is pioneering the way of police accountability, yet he has no disciplinary ability.  Nor does he involve any community led initiatives challenging police brutality.

Basically, Rosenthal is a pawn.  The state has co-opted actual notions and models of community policing by appointing Rosenthal and attempting to sell it as a progressive model that polices the police.

Despite this, people in the community and in the hood are not bamboozled by this nonsense.  We are hip to the bullshit.
