Memphis Police Officer Severe Abuse of Power

Published On October 29, 2012 | By CopBlock | Articles

According to WREG Memphis,

A Memphis police officer and a 911 dispatcher are on paid leave and an investigation involving both is underway.

This involves officer Darrell Mallone and dispatcher Jenny Rice.

This comes after a News Channel 3 report indicating the officer may have shown his gun, then threatened a man, while off-duty.

There is also an allegation Rice may have given Mallone the caller’s personal information which would be a violation of procedure.

Collierville resident Michael Montgomery told News Channel 3, he was driving on Germantown Parkway when he sees two guys on motorcycles weaving in and out of traffic.

“I pulled up to them at the stop light and told them, if they don’t start behaving properly I would call the police”, said Montgomery.  “One gentleman lifted his vest and showed me a handgun and told me he was police.”

Montgomery dialed 911 anyway, and said the man with the gun drove by him cursing.

Later, he says the man called him on his cellphone, apparently getting his number from 911. Montgomery said the officer told him to watch his back, that if he saw him in Memphis he would “f*^k him up.”

Deputy police director Dave Martello told us Thursday if this story is true the officer, Darrell Malone will face discipline.

Police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph confirms the same in the case of the 911 operator who may have shared Montgomery’s phone number.

“If it is true, it’s going to be dealt with and dealt with severely”, said Memphis Mayor A C Wharton. “If it’s not true and someone turned in a false report on one of our officers that’s going to be dealt with too.”

Another incident, same officer. No action taken my MPD.

A day after a man accused a Memphis Police Officer of abusing his power, another man has come forward with similar accusations against the same police officer.

Leo Veasley didn’t want to show his face but wanted his voice heard about who he calls a “bully with a badge.”

“You are there to protect and serve, not to harass people and be a bully because you are a police officer,” said Veasley.

Veasley says he was harassed by officer Darrell Malone, the same officer accused of threatening another man with a gun and a harassing phone call.

Veasley says in his case, it started when he got a driving ticket from the officer February 9th, ”He got very verbal. Pulled a stick out and threatened to hit me in the face.”

Veasley says he didn’t know the officer’s name but when he went to court a couple of months later, he got Malone’s badge number and reported it to MPDs internal affairs.

And that’s when he says the real harassment began, ”After they took the report, the following next day Officer Malone was driving past my house.”

He says Malone has passed his Frayser home multiple times after that leaving a ticket on his car, even shining a spot light in his house.

Veasley says it’s all to intimidate him.

“I’m a citizen just like you are and I want to be treated like one,” he said. “I don`t want to be protected from the police. I want to be protected by them.”

MPD says Veasley did not file a complaint with internal affairs but with a workstation at the precinct level.  Officials say a precinct supervisor called Veasley several times to follow-up on the case but Veasley never returned the phone calls so the case was dropped.  But Veasley says he never got a follow-up call about it from police.

MPD says Veasley never reported that Officer Malone had continued to harass him.

Mallone and 911 and 911 dispatcher Jenny Rice are both on paid leave at this time.

    As usuual…another story with no proof. Show me some evidence, any kind of evidence, other than some dude spouting at the mouth. Hell, the second dude in the article didn’t even return a call from Internal Affairs. Where’s the proof?

  • http://agorism.info/ Brad Spangler

    re: “Where’s the proof?”

    Learn to read the English language. The story reports that allegations were made. If you want proof that allegations were actually made, you need to take it up with WREG. I seriously doubt that those allegations were not made. I also doubt you have enough integrity to object just as much to any story in which police are the ones making allegations.

  • Itsonlyeye

    Ok, you want proof, MIND EXPLAINING TO ME HOW THE OFFICER GOT THE MANS CELL PHONE NUMBER????

  • shawn

    @BTJ

    It wasn’t internal affairs, and of course cops would never lie, right? The man states he recieved no calls. As for proof, phone records can at least show the officer called.

  • Common Sense

    ..but, but, he cursed!

  • Jesse from East LA

    I wouldn’t take any police officer’s/dept. word over a civilian, so if the cops say they called him and he never got back to them then that’s probably a lie.

  • Yankee Fan

    Maybe Buford, do your own researching before you look stupid with your ignorant comments. Here is the actual news release on this story:

    Buford T Justice is an inbred, corrupt, fat boy cop. And the original in the Burt Reynolds movie was, too.

  • Spirit of 46

    the next time Buford turns on the TV and sees a Tornado Warning he’s going to say “As usuual…another story with no proof”

  • PSOSGT

    @shawn.. internal affairs.. cops don’t lie I would say 99.999% of the time. I wouldn’t!! Lying in an internal investigation is going to get me fired 100% of the time, willing to bet it’s the same just about everywhere else. Would rather take my lumps for calling someone, than trying to lie my way out of it.

  • http://suijurisforum.com indio007

    “cops don’t lie I would say 99.999%
    Is this statement the .001% of the lies?

  • rick

    Amazing how much damage that 0.001% can do!

  • zonmoy

    @indio007

    No I think it is the lie that proves that the .001% of the time that they are being honest.

  • t.

    Another story of a police department getting it right. Memphis PD trying to insure that their officers are doing it right. If this guy did it wrong, he did. If he didn’t, he didn’t . Allegations are just that…allegations. Due process will show it. Memphis PD…well done.

  • Jim

    And a paid vacation to boot while the investigation comes up with the boilerplate exoneration. What a great gig!

    Just a bitch gang banger with a badge.

    Police should not abuse their power and the government should strictly implement rules to guide the people and the force.

    I just hope everything gets sorted in a timely manner.

  • need2knowBasis

    dear sir or vagina,

    i need help in the form of legal representation against the indiana, pennsylvania state police. i am writing to as many lawyers/officers as i can, in hopes that someone will care enough about the abuse of power shown to me by the indiana, pennsylvania state police and one specific policevagina named abby blazavich. this vagina needs to be put in her place, by any means necessary. she has no right to harass me or anyone else who merely comments online about her asexual appearance. she has no right to imply that her name is copyrighted – she does not own her name, i am free to use it as my drag-name as well as my pseudonym. please contact me at [email protected].

    i am “traumatically brain-injured,” and i feel my injury is being exploited by a policevagina named abby blazavich. i have written two letters in an effort to get some representation for my date in court. the first ticket said that the date in court was in the middle of october, but the date changed to the end of october after i paid two $50 amounts for both tickets.

    i will enclose the two letters i’ve written, but basically i was given two citations after they decided not to arrest me for insulting a little vagina by posting online that she looks like a man. i had no contact with the vagina, i merely saw its picture on patrooper.com and then made a petition on myonlinepetition.com entitled, “Get Transsexuals and Anyone Looking Transgendered Off Of The Police Force”. the indiana, pennsylvania police had to be talked down by my therapist and an fbi agent who knows me from harmless antics i’ve done in the past and was investigated for.

    the citations are for bogus “offenses,” including making a facebook page in the policevagina’s name (which has been my drag-name since discovering the trannie in 2012), but the page had my own picture on it (as well as essays i have written that were signed in my name). nobody, not even madonna, owns their name. madonna had to fight to get madonna.com from a pornographer who bought it before madonna tried to. another bogus “offense” that the citations are for is insulting the vagina by calling her a genderivoid – that is my word for anyone who looks as asexual as abby blazavich looks. opinions are protected speech, which makes moot the complaint of my inventing an insulting condition and attributing it to the vagina.

    the offenses that they have accused me of are unheard of and i should not even have to go to court to defend myself. i’m totally covered under “freedom of speech,” and i know that if abby the vagina was not a police officer then there is no way i’d have been sent a citation for stating my opinions.
    —————————————
    here follow the previous letters:

    my name is dylan.

    i no longer need help with everyday tasks like dressing, but if you could provide a lawyer or any legal assistance, my email is [email protected].

    i had a “traumatic brain-injury” on june 24, 1990, and i feel that i am being played and deceived by the pennsylvania state police regarding a bogus citation i received in the mail.

    my court-date is at the end of october, i have spoken to two lawyers, but i don’t believe they are lawyers who specialize in matters of free speech (or at least not as much as groups like the aclu), so i am wanting some information on what to do about a ticket/summons i got in the mail only because i criticized a certain policevagina named abby blazavich and her asexual appearance.

    i do drag every summer in cranberry township. in 2012, i named my “drag self” after an asexual police officer i saw a picture of online. well, i recently was sent a citation/summons for…hmn, the citation made me think that it is a crime to comment online about a police officer’s asexual appearance. to make a long story short, i called an officer a “genderivoid” in an essay i posted through facebook and on a few different websites, but i honestly was unsure of the officer’s gender based on its appearance and on the impression i got when i saw its picture. i didn’t intend to “annoy or alarm” the vagina, but that’s what the ticket says. the other one was sent because i “created a physically offensive condition which served no legitimate purpose,” and also because i didn’t stop the insult after being instructed to, but facebook removed my “abby blazavich” account (which was complete with a picture of myself and my own name under every essay i posted to the account), and i was unable to post anything else under the name of “abby blazavich” even if i wanted to. the account was removed before the police came to my house.

    i maintain that abby blazavich gives the police force a weak name, not only because it became an officer on account of the lesser physical requirements expected of members of the lesser gender, but because it is a crybaby who cries until its critics are attacked. i feel raped and violated because of every hassle that abby blazavich put me though, and i know i would feel more raped and violated if both my therapist and the fbi agent who knows me from past online cyber-dealings weren’t absolutely certain that i am not a threat to anyone. the vagina and company (indiana, pennsylvania state police) would have arrested me, just for commenting on abby blazavich’s asexual appearance.

    SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN ON THE WEBSITE. I HAD TO RESEARCH THE NAME TO FIND OUT THE GENDER! THAT IS THE TRUTH.

    abby blazavich needs to be removed from the indiana, pennsylvania state police. ALL vaginas need to be removed from positions of authority because PINK alludes to RED menstruation and WHITE breastmilk, which alludes to stay-at-home moms, but i’ll keep this letter alluding to the vagina named abby blazavich.

    the following is a letter i am sending to attorneys and statesmen who fight against police corruption and the abuse of power that i have been shown by the state police in indiana, pennsylvania. if you can provide legal assistance in any way, that would be appreciated.

    dear sir or vagina:

    discrimination regarding my homosexuality, Traumatic Brain-Injury and the indiana, pennsylvania state police:

    my name is dylan terreri. i am a summertime cross-dresser, i had a “traumatic brain-injury” on june 24, 1990, and i am the victim of either anti-gay harassment or anti-disability harassment done by the indiana, pennsylvania state police, as well as one policevagina named abby blazavich.

    i am mailing this letter to “traumatic brain-injury” groups and also to other organizations who may have the authority to PENALize the policevagina (and also the whole indiana, pennsylvania state police department) regarding the harassment i have experienced. my court-date is in the middle of october, it is over a bogus “charge” (harassment and disorderly conduct) that cannot be justified without a little use of “creative license” being applied to the law.

    this is the letter (with some edits/additions) which i had originally written with regards to the state police and their harassment of citizens who comment on an officer’s picture online.
    —————–
    dear sir or vagina:

    i would like to sue the state of pennsylvania and the united states government for emotional distress. my name is dylan terreri, i – my website is http://www.dearsirorvagina.com – my complaint is regarding both pennsylvania’s indiana police department and a specific vagina who works there named abby blazavich. this vagina sent the police or fbi to my house, in july of 2013, on account of a facebook account i created in “her” name (her name happens to be my drag-name since 2012 – that’s when i first saw the picture of the policevagina who looked like a policeman. yes, i do drag in the stores of cranberry township with the identity of “abingdon blazavich,” daily during during the summer).

    “abby” is short for “abingdon,” so i joined facebook under the name “abby blazavich”. this facebook account featured my own picture, i commented on news stories with this “abby blazavich” account and signed the posts using my real name, and i consider it an abuse of power for the policevagina to have me charged with “harassment” and “disorderly conduct” on account of the existence of a similar name. if abby was not a police officer, there is not a chance that i would have received a ticket for “harassment” or “disorderly conduct”. for crying out loud, not even madonna owns the name “madonna,” and madonna’s ownership of the domain “madonna.com” wasn’t a simple task because someone else owned it before her.

    the emotional distress i went through was not caused immediately by lawmen knocking on my door, it was caused a week later after the realization hit me, the realization of my having come so close to being arrested. i was at home when i started sweating and feeling both light-headed and sick to my stomach, and after a while, i thought i just needed to get out. so, i went to the grocery store for a sandwich and a drink. well, after eating the sandwich, my head was not relieved, so i bought exedrin migraine – no, it wasn’t a migraine that i had but i am so a-c-c-u-s-t-o-m-e-d to buying this aspirin because i got headaches a lot until i went to the hospital and got medication to ward-off the headaches so i don’t have to take so many liver-damaging migraine-pills.

    to continue, i will give you the whole story. there is a super-stud who works at the cranberry township police department who has been on my mind since 2008 when he pulled me over for expired tags – i wanted to learn his name so i could stop referring to him as “the super-stud who works at the cranberry township police department,” so i went onto patrooper.com to see if my brain-damaged memory could identify him. on that website, i got a look at one picture of a vagina named abby blazavich – i thought she looked like a transvestite who was trying to seem manly (despite the LESSER bodyheight and bodyweight and bodystrength which all members of the vagina-gender seem to share), and i complained about the masculine wannabee – BY NAME – on various websites, stating that any vagina who looks like a man should not serve on a police force to be looked up to by kids with impressionable gender-identies.

    i also signed up for facebook with the name “abby blazavich,” i uploaded a picture of nobody but MYSELF – and then used that profile to comment (SIGNED N MY REAL NAME) on news stories i had run into on various websites. though i believe i am justified in saying that abby blazavich looks like a masculine-wannabee/transvestite who harbors as many gender-identity issues as a lesbian (see http://www.patrooper.com/ reclist.html and look for “abby blazavich”), it appears that abby the vagina didn’t like my screen-name of “abby blazavich” being attached to the topics i write about and/or the offensive way i write. she must have whined and belly-ached to her superiors (who ISN’T superior to a little vagina) and soon the police or fbi were at my door. hmn, i think the fbi came regarding a “elect duane rape” page i made earlier this past summer (with a name like “duane rape,” how can wordplay not be expected?).

    anyway, i maintain that if i (dylan jacob terreri, the first) wrote under facebook-names such as “james brown” or “jakob dylan” and complained about the masculine-wannabees and masculivoids known as feminists and gay “men,” neither jakob dylan nor anyone named james brown could have complained enough to get the police over to my house. furthermore, i will say that if online fake-identities are illegal, i demand a full investigation be done to apprehend the homo who misrepresented himself to me in 1997 via an aol profile – i would have NEVER told him my hotel’s room-number if i knew what he really looked like.

    maybe if he looked a little more like abby blazavich, then i would have been inclined to suck his dick.

    facebook claims to have billions of members, but they don’t take into consideration the number of people (like myself) who have more than one account. facebook claims to have billions af members, yet there are so many accounts belonging to “josh lane,” for instance. i maintain that if there can be many accounts of men named “josh lane” then there can be many accounts of vaginas named “abby blazavich”. the name “abby blazavich” is not exclusive to the little vagina who works at the police department, the name is not exclusively HER property, and she had NO RIGHT to have my emotional well-being jolted simply because she was offended that essays written by dylan terreri, i (AND SIGNED THAT WAY) were attached to a facebook-account featuring the name “abby blazavich” as well as MY OWN PICTURE.

    i had little contact with the police and/or fbi, this is because i see a therapist who was contacted, but either a policeman or an fbi-man came to my house (after my therapist told me that one would) to talk to me. he told me that what i did (i’m sure he meant my having made a fake facebook-account) was bordering on “identity-theft”. i maintain that it was MY PICTURE that was on the account, it was MY NAME under every essay that was attached to the account, and to even suggest “identity theft” in this situation is as ridiculous as a recruiter at a police department who is suggesting that a vagina can do anything a man can do while entry-level requirements FOR that police department are lessened for the lesser gender.

    it was UNWARRANTED for authorities to have been called on account of a duplicate name being used on facebook. “josh lane” isn’t the only name that is attached to a plethora of facebook accounts. policemen and policevaginas do NOT have special rights and they should NOT be permitted to send the police to anyone’s house simply because anyone made a facebook account in the name of a policeman or a policevagina. ESPECIALLY when the picture attached to that facebook account does not represent the police officer named…or even the gender which the police officer’s name implies.

    i would like to sue the state of pennsylvania and the united states government for emotional distress. i got a ticket in the mail for “harassment” and another one for “disorderly conduct,” $500 each, and i believe that these charges are bogus enough to defend myself in court. i was told that i should hire a lawyer anyway, but i maintain that i did nothing harassing to the policevagina named abby blazavich. if she felt harassed by someone with the same name as her then it’s simply a matter of her ego. she does not own the name “abby blazavich” exclusively, and her desire to get me in trouble just makes her out to be just another manipulative vagina who cries “rape”…or, in this case, “wolf”. this is like one of the thousands of phony rape charges which are filed out of spite for the stronger gender and filed by members of “the pipsqueak gender”. to think that she’s the only one who is allowed to have her name is simply ego-driven madness.

    furthermore, facebook deleted my “abby blazavich” account even before i was informed of the policevagina’s complaints. i tried to log-on one morning and i was unable to, it was that afternoon that the policeman came. i assume that the policevagina contacted facebook and told them to delete my screenname. i maintain that it is an abuse of power for the little vagina to have a ticket sent to me simply because i made a facebook-account in her name and commented on many news stories with offensive language (my therapist told me that she blew the name off at first, and only was offended enough to file a complaint when she saw my potty-mouthed style of writing and the offensive topics i write about).

    “thou shalt not take abby blazavich’s name in vain” – oh, really? this is a bogus complaint filed against me. it is a lie because i would have consciously stopped posting on facebook in her name if facebook didn’t delete the account before i even spoke to police. i couldn’t have posted anything more even if i wanted to.

    abingdon “abby” blazavich is my drag-name when i’m dressed in short shorts/low-cut tanks, the name was inspired by my love of football studs like jeb blazavich whose abs make me horny (i get horny when i see a man’s horn in the locker room, and i get abby when i see his abs).

    i AM abby blazavich.
