Cop Block Week In Review: June 4 – June 10

Keeping up with all the police related stories, events and more can be a difficult tasks. Therefore, with the intention of keeping the readers of CopBlock.org informed about the most recent stories, videos and happenings – not only at CopBlock.org but the extended CopBlock offshoots as well – we’ve decided to start a “CopBlock Week in Review” series. Each week a CopBlock contributor will publish a post that highlights the blogs published at the site throughout the week, short stories about other CopBlocker activities and more. So without further ado, lets get into this week’s review.

WHAT OTHER COPBLOCK OFFSHOOT ARE UP TO:

Suicidal Man Killed by Police

This story came to us from Sun City, AZ where a 69 year old man told family members that he was suicidal. When his wife left the house she did the worst thing she could have done, notify the police.

The police arrived at the home and claim he told police there would be a shootout if they did not allow him to leave the house. While the man clearly has mental problems the cops showed once again that they are hardly ever there to make a situation better. His wife just wanted to get the man some help, not have him murdered by police officers.

From AZfamily.com:

A 69-year-old man is dead after a deputy-involved shooting in Sun City Monday evening, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.

The incident happened in a neighborhood southeast of 99th Avenue and Bell Road.

According to the sheriff’s office, the man had been drinking and texted his relatives that he was suicidal.

His wife left the house and called 911, saying her husband was suicidal and had guns in the house.

The man reportedly told responding deputies that there would be a shootout if they tried to remove him from the home. Negotiators spent about four hours trying to calm him down.

“During the course of the negotiations, he would come out, and one of the times he came out to feed birds and went back in,” said MCSO spokesman Joaquin Enriquez. “All this adds up to just the behavior, the bizarre behavior he had.”

The sheriff’s office has not released many details about the shooting but said deputies opened fire after the man pointed a gun at them.

Texas Pool Cop: His Name is Eric Casebolt and He Just Resigned (BREAKING)

By now I am sure you have heard about this incident. Kids in Mckinney, TX were having a pool party when a disturbance resulted in the cops being called. When officer Eric Casebolt arrived he began acting like a complete fool, waving his gun around at the unarmed kids and violently forcing them to the ground.

Casebolt wound up resigning after the video went viral and caused backlash across the country. Turns out Eric was also in trouble one other time for racial bias and inappropriate touching during a stop in 2007, details here

According to an ABC affiliate in TX:

Casebolt’s resignation was confirmed about one hour earlier by attorney Jane Bishkin, who told WFAA that the decision was made after a meeting with the department’s internal affairs unit to review possible charges her client could face.

Eric and his family remain in hiding claiming they are afraid for their lives, a common police retort.

WEEKLY CORRUPT COPS STORIES

Each week we gather stories about corrupt cops across the country published weekly by StopTheDrugWar.org. Here are a couple stories from the previous week.

In Jacksonville, Florida, a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office patrol officer was arrested last Thursday as part of a federal drug roundup that netted 13 people. Officer Michael Rounsville, 46, is charged with unauthorized use of the National Crime Information Center database. He allegedly used it to check an undercover agent’s criminal history without authorization. Others in the case face drug trafficking and money laundering charges.

In Charlotte, North Carolina, a Mecklenburg County probation officer was arrested last Friday on heroin and pain pill charges. Justin Shame McGlamery is accused of buying heroin four times in the past two weeks and selling hydrocodone and oxycodone. At last report, he was still trying to make a $125,000 bail bond

Detectives have arrested a probation officer based in Mecklenburg County. Justin Shane McGlamery is now the center of a drug investigation.

McGlamery is accused of buying heroin four different times over the last two weeks.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office said detectives witnessed two of these purchases. He was on duty at the time and driving his state assigned vehicle.

He’s also charged with selling hydrocodone and oxycodone.

Police say McGlamery is responsible for various drug crimes. He was arrested May 28 and booked into jail on a $125,000 bond.

Multiple agencies investigated this case, including SBI.

Supervisors with N.C. Probation and Parole were notified and they collected the state-owned vehicle. His gun and badge have been removed and collected as evidence.
