Police Accountability Report: Episode 113 – LRN.fm

This week, a couple of stories that should cause anyone critically thinking to see that those wearing badges aren’t always operating with the best intentions.

Story #1
Trooper in Motorcycle Crash Loses License

An Ohio Highway Patrol trooper who pleaded no contest to a citation after rear-ending two people on a motorcycle with his law enforcement cruiser was sentenced Monday to a six-month license suspension.
Assistant Hamilton County prosecutor Seth Tieger, assigned as a special prosecutor in the case, recommended Trooper Jacob M. Daymon be charged with failure to maintain assured cleared distance (failure to stop a vehicle to avoid a crash) — a misdemeanor.
Daymon was also fined $150 and ordered to pay court costs. His attorney said he will have to apply to have the license suspension lifted for his drive to and from work and driving a state patrol cruiser, even though that’s what he was driving when he injured the motorcyclists.
On August 17th, traveling west on U.S. 35 in New Jasper Twp., Daymon struck Corey and Amy Waldman, who were treated and released at Miami Valley Hospital.
Court records state that Daymon told a supervisor he was on his way to work at the Xenia post when he was dispatched to U.S. 35, near the Jamestown exit, for a report of a pedestrian walking in the highway. Daymon radioed to dispatch that he was unable to locate the pedestrian.
Daymon told the supervisor he was using his mobile command terminal, a laptop mounted between the front seats, to clear himself from the incident when he struck the motorcycle from behind. He said that he never saw the motorcycle until the riders were striking the windshield – clearly he was too focused on his laptop to watch the road.

Story #2
EL Monte police officer accused of sexual assault while on duty

An El Monte police officer is under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department on suspicion of sexually assaulting a transsexual woman last year while on duty.
The woman recently filed a federal civil rights and assault lawsuit against the unnamed El Monte police officer and the El Monte Police Department. She says she was stopped last October between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. as she walked to a friends house, and alleges that the officer groped her, forced her to perform oral sex on him and then raped her.
He was in a marked patrol car and ordered her into an alley behind a business, where he attacked her.
Sheriff’s Lt. Bob Peacock said the investigation into the officer is ongoing and that detectives are awaiting DNA results from a used condom and other evidence. The officer has not been arrested.
In the suit filed Oct. 18, lawyers for the woman allege that she was ordered to lean into the patrol cruiser, at which point the officer “groped her breasts.”
He then asked if she was a “she male” and the woman responded she was a transsexual. The officer ordered her into an alley and eventually a poorly lit parking lot near a loading dock.
Once there, the officer ordered her to perform oral sex and then raped her. She complied out of fear for her physical safety.” 
The officer tossed the condom he used on the ground and told her to get out of there. The woman complied but returned to the to scene, retrieved the condom, and turned it over to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
