Cop wrongfully arrests man for recording him, jails him, destroys video evidence

Thompson 500

George Thompson, a 51-year-old citizen of Fall Rivers, Massachusetts, was sitting on his front porch when he noticed Officer Thomas Barboza sitting in a patrol car and having a heated, profane cell phone conversation. Thompson began recording the officer’s call using his own cell phone. When Barboza noticed, he approached Thompson.

Thompson freely admitted that he was filming Baboza–something that state law explicitly permits. But Barboza arrested him anyway.

“You f***ing welfare bum, I’m arresting you,” said Barboza, according to Thompson.

Thompson was charged with unlawful wiretapping and resisting arrest, and spent one night in jail.

Thompson said the footage from his cell phone would absolutely acquit him. Unfortunately, the footage was wiped from the phone at some unknown point in time, according to the police department.

Thompson said Officer Barboza confiscated his iPhone. A review of the video would likely clear up the issue of concealment, but Fall River Police Chief Daniel Racine said the iPhone was erased while it was in an evidence room at the police station. They have issued a warrant to Apple Inc. to find out how the phone was reset.

“If a Fall River police officer erased that video, he’s fired and I would suspect the district attorney would take out charges,” Racine said. “If any other individual did that, we will take out felony charges.”

An iPhone can be wiped out remotely in the event it gets lost or stolen, but Thompson denied that he did so, saying he gave his password to police so officers could retrieve the video to use in his case.

“I wanted the police to see it, I wanted everybody in the city to see it,” Thompson said.

Isn’t That Cute: Europe Doesn’t Want US-made Cheeses to Use “Old World” Names and They Actually Think We Care

cheeses 500

As part of trade talks, the EU wants to ban the use of names like Parmesan, feta and Gorgonzola on cheese made in the United States.  The argument is that the American-made cheeses are shadows of the original European varieties and cut into sales and identity of the European cheeses.

The Europeans say Parmesan should only come from Parma, Italy, not from Auricchio’s plant or those familiar green cylinders that American companies sell. Feta should only be from Greece, they say, even though feta isn’t a place. The EU argues it “is so closely connected to Greece as to be identified as an inherently Greek product.”

“It’s really stunning that the Europeans are trying to claw back products made popular in other countries,” says Jim Mulhern, president of the National Milk Producers Federation, which represents U.S. dairy farmers.

“We have invested years and years making these cheeses,” Errico Auricchio an immigrant from Europe who has been making cheese in the US for 30 years, says. “You cannot stop the spreading of culture, especially in the global economy.”

I’m sure Errico would have added, “no pun intended,” as well.

Mummified body in Detroit, dead since 2008, somehow manages to vote in 2010 elections

mummified remains 500

Despite being dead since 2008, the mummified body of a 49-year old Detroit woman was recorded voting in the 2010 Michigan gubernatorial election.

The body of 49-year old Pia Farrenkopf was discovered in her garage on March 5, sitting in the backseat of her Jeep Liberty. It was found by a contractor who was going through the house since it’s being foreclosed on.

Although her remains are believed to be at least six years old, records in Oakland County show Farrenkopf voting in the 2010 gubernatorial election between Republican Rick Snyder and Democrat Virg Bernero.

City of Pontiac officials told the Detroit Free Press that it was most likely a clerical error. The city clerk said that someone with an infrequent record like hers usually only vote in presidential elections as opposed to gubernatorial or smaller elections.

Conveniently missing is which party she belonged to.

Crazed cat holds Oregon (Obama by 13%) family in terror, family to put cat in therapy

bad cat 500

Lee Palmer of Portland says the animal attacked his 7-month-old child after the baby pulled its tail.

On the 911 call, Palmer tells the dispatcher he kicked the cat “in the rear” to protect his child. Palmer says the animal then “just went off over the edge” — leading Palmer and his girlfriend to barricade themselves, their baby and the family dog in the bedroom for safety.

The cat can be heard screeching in the background of the call as Palmer says in a panicked voice: “He’s charging us. He’s at our bedroom door.” Palmer also tells the dispatcher the cat has been violent in the past.

Officers used a dog snare to capture the animal, and placed it in a crate.

The owner say they are now wanting to put the cat in therapy, so it can receive proper treatment.
