NJ Officials Blast NYPD Over Spying Report

50,000 chickens found dead or starving at Central Valley farm

The operator of an abandoned Central Valley chicken farm is facing potential animal neglect charges after authorities found about 50,000 hens dead or starving on the property.
The farm was rented by A&L Poultry and raised laying hens on property near Turlock, south of Modesto, the Modesto Bee reported.
Authorities say the hens had not been fed in more than two weeks.
About one-third of the hens died of starvation, Annette Patton of the Stanislaus Animal Services agency told the Bee. The others will be euthanized because they were in such poor health.
Officials had not said how the carcasses would be disposed of, though dead hens and other farm animals usually go to rendering plants, where they are made into ingredients for various products, the Bee reported.
Owner Andy Keung Cheung declined to comment when the newspaper reached him by telephone.
Animal service officials investigated after a citizen complained about the business, Patton said, adding the owner is potentially facing animal neglect charges.
Initial testing did not indicate that the birds were diseased, a veterinarian for the animal service agency.

L.A. County sheriff's deputy fatally shoots man in Paramount


Authorities are investigating the fatal shooting by an L.A. County sheriff's deputy of a man early Tuesday in Paramount.
The incident occurred in the 16400 block of Paramount Boulevard around 12:30 a.m. as deputies were attempting to approach a man suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, KTLA-TV reported.
There appeared to be a struggle for one deputy's gun, KTLA reported, and the deputy shot the man twice in the upper body. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital, Deputy Aura Sierra said. The deputy involved in the shooting was uninjured. Neither the deputy nor the man who was shot was identified.

San Diego police officer accused of fixing tickets resigns

A San Diego police sergeant facing charges of ticket-fixing has resigned, the Police Department said Wednesday.
Kevin Friedman, a supervisor in the traffic division, was a 27-year veteran of the department.
Friedman and Deputy Dist. Atty. Allison Debow face misdemeanor charges of fixing two tickets. A hearing is set in San Diego County Superior Court on March 7.
Debow is on paid administrative leave, according to the district attorney's office.
Debow allegedly asked Friedman to destroy seat-belt tickets issued by a San Diego police officer to Debow and Deputy Dist. Atty. Amy Maund. Maund was unaware that Debow made the request, according to prosecutors.

Anonymous says attack put CIA website offline

Hackers have claimed responsibility for making the CIA website inaccessible on Image of Guy Fawkes taken from a video posted by the hacking group Anonymous when it hacked the Greek Justice Ministry website 3 February 2012Friday - the latest attack on a US federal agency.
A Twitter post on a feed used by hackers' collective Anonymous said "CIA Tango down", a phrase used by the US Special Forces after killing an enemy.
Anonymous said in another tweet that just because it reported a hack, that did not mean it carried out the attack.
This would not be the first time the CIA website has been put offline.
In June 2011, a group affiliated with Anonymous, Lulz Security, temporarily brought down the agency's homepage.
The CIA site remained offline on Friday evening after several hours, and a spokeswoman said the agency was looking into the reports.
Hackers usually target such websites through a denial-of-service attack, which involves bombarding the site with traffic until its servers are overwhelmed.
There is no suggestion that the security of the CIA's actual computer systems have been compromised.
Earlier this month, Anonymous managed to intercept a conference call between the FBI and British police as they discussed legal action against hackers.
And following the shutdown of the Megaupload file-sharing website last month, a statement attributed to Anonymous claimed responsibility for shutting down the websites of the Department of Justice and FBI, among others

Sheriff Deputies shoot man in Compton

Compton deputy involved shooting
Look how many deputies are just waiting standing in this picture all for one man who one of their own shot and whose serious crime they have yet to produce but as always suspect.
Sheriff's officials are investigating a deputy-involved shooting that injured a man Wednesday morning in Compton.
Deputies opened fire about 8:15 a.m., wounding a man in a neighborhood at the 1400 block of Pearl Avenue, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept. officials said.
The man, described by authorities as a "suspect," was hospitalized with unspecified injuries. His condition was not released.
No deputies were injured in the incident. No further details were immediately available.

Marine not guilty in hazing of lance corporal who committed suicide

Marine Sgt. Benjamin Johns

A court-martial jury found a Marine sergeant not guilty Thursday of assaulting a California Marine, who committed suicide in Afghanistan.

The jury of three officers and five enlisted found Sgt. Benjamin Johns, 26, not guilty of assaulting Lance Cpl. Harry Lew.

Lew, 21, from Santa Clara in Northern California, committed suicide in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on April 3, just hours after allegedly being mistreated by Johns and two other Marines. He was the nephew of Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park).

Johns was charged with assault and dereliction of duty for not stopping Marines in his squad from pummeling Lew in retaliation for repeatedly falling asleep on guard duty.
But Johns' attorney said that Johns ordered Lew to dig a foxhole in order to keep him from falling asleep. Something done to help Marines fulfill their mission cannot be hazing, he told the jury.
One Marine has pleaded guilty to assault and has been given 30 days in the brig in the case. Another Marine is set for court-martial.

Johns' court-martial took place in Hawaii, where the Marines are assigned.

Chu has called for a congressional hearing into cases of hazing in the military, including that of her nephew.

Ex-San Diego police officer sentenced for demanding sexual favors


A tearful former San Diego police officer was sentenced Friday to eight years and eight months in prison for his conviction on 12 counts of demanding sexual favors from seven women after traffic stops.
Anthony Arevalos, 41, was convicted in November of stopping women, often in downtown San Diego, for traffic offenses and then offering to let them go if they would engage in sexual contact. An 18-year veteran of the department, he was fired after the charges were filed.
San Diego Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Fraser refused Arevalos' request to grant him probation so he could remain with his children. He wept as he apologized to his victims, his family and the police department.

O.C. sheriff's deputy arrested for allegedly having sex with inmate

An Orange County sheriff’s deputy is facing criminal charges for allegedly having sex with an inmate at a jail facility in Santa Ana, officials said.

Jennifer McClain, 29, was arrested Thursday night while on duty at the center. She was released on her own recognizance and is awaiting a court appearance, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
McClain, a five-year veteran, is accused of being sexually involved with a male inmate while on duty at the Intake Release Center in November and December. The inmate reported the relationship to a supervisor. He said it was consensual. It was not clear why the inmate decided to come forward, Amormino said.
“It was disheartening because she was a popular deputy and it was a shock to many of us,” Amormino said. “But we do not tolerate this kind of misconduct from anyone who tarnishes the badge.”
McClain is on administrative leave during the criminal investigation and internal investigation.

Marine killed by O.C. deputy outside school wasn't armed, sheriff says

Marine Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr.

A Marine sergeant fatally shot by an Orange County Sheriff's deputy in a dark San Clemente high school parking lot this week was not armed and the incident doesn't appear to be alcohol- or drug-related, sheriff's officials said.
A sheriff's spokesman said the deputy feared for the safety of two young girls sitting in a parked car when he shot Marine Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr. Tuesday. The shooting occurred as Loggins started to get into the SUV where his two daughters — ages 9 and 14 — were sitting, authorities said.
Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Department, said the deputy was fearful that Loggins — who he said appeared to be acting irrationally — was about the drive off with the girls.
"The real threat that was perceived was the safety of the children," Amormino said.

"The deputy formed an opinion that he had a deep concern for the children, that he would not allow Mr. Loggins to drive away with the kids," Amormino said.
A former commanding officer said Loggins routinely went to the school during the early morning with his daughters to walk the track and read the Bible.
About 4:30 a.m. on the day of the shooting, the deputy was doing paperwork inside his car near San Clemente High School when he said he saw Loggins driving a white GMC Yukon at an "unsafe, high rate of speed" into the school parking lot, Amormino said.
The SUV, according to Amormino, crashed through a locked gate and the deputy pulled in behind him.

Loggins walked onto the football field, and about three to four deputies arrived to set up a perimeter, Amormino said. The deputies said they lost sight of Loggins for about five minutes, and when he reappeared, he walked toward the car and climbed inside, ignoring deputies' commands, Amormino said.

Amormino said that Loggins made statements to the deputy before he was shot. He would not elaborate.

The shooting is being investigated by the Orange County district attorney's office. The deputy, a 15-year veteran, is on paid leave, which is routine in shootings.

Marine fatally shot by deputy described as deeply religious

Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr. was shot by an Orange County sheriff's deputy in a parking lot at San Clemente High School. He regularly went to the campus track with his young daughters for early-morning prayer walks.

Marine shot by sheriff's deputy
A decorated Marine who was fatally shot by an Orange County sheriff's deputy in a high school parking lot was described Thursday as a deeply religious man who regularly went to the campus track with his young daughters for early-morning prayer walks.

Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr. was shot to death during the predawn hours Tuesday under largely unexplained circumstances in a parking lot at San Clemente High School.

Loggins' daughters, 9 and 14, were sitting nearby in the family SUV at the time of the shooting.

Loggins, who was based at Camp Pendleton, was driving "at a high rate of speed" when he crashed his Yukon SUV through a gate at the parking lot about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.

A nearby deputy who'd been doing paperwork in his patrol car pulled up behind the Yukon. Loggins emerged from the SUV and headed toward the athletic field, apparently ignoring the deputy's orders to stop, Amormino said.

When Loggins turned and headed back to the Yukon, the deputy suddenly felt threatened and opened fire, Amormino said.

Amormino said he did not know why the deputy felt threatened, or how many shots were fired, or whether Loggins was armed. Marine sources said Loggins was not in possession of a weapon.

Loggins was taken to Mission Hospital, where he died.

Major Christopher Cox said Loggins had been scheduled to work at 7:30 that morning at the base, where he managed the in-bound and out-bound cargo.

Cox, who was Loggins' supervisor, said the 31-year-old Marine was a devout Christian who often took his daughters to the San Clemente High track for what he called "prayer walks."

"They would take their Bibles and walk around the track in the morning," Cox said.

He said Loggins' wife usually accompanied them but is pregnant and was unable to go. "She's just so pregnant now, she stopped going," Cox said.

Cox said Loggins volunteered with a Big Brothers group and at nursing homes, and was close to earning a bachelor's degree in nursing.

"He was a mentor, somewhat of a father figure, to a number of the Marines," Cox said. "He was very soft-spoken, very nonconfrontational — very, very respectful. He was just the epitome of respect.".

Cox said he and other Marines were trying to make sense of the shooting and were frustrated with the lack of information.

"I've got some Marines that are very upset," he said.

The deputy who shot him was placed on administrative leave, which is routine. His name has not been released.

The Orange County district attorney's office, which is investigating the shooting, declined to comment.

Loggins, a native of Joliet, Ill., joined the Marines in 1998. Among other commendations, he had received a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, two Navy Unit Commendations and three Marine Corps Good Conduct Medals.,0,584000.story

Menominee Seventh Grader Suspended for Saying "I Love You" in her Native Language

SHAWANO, WISCONSIN - What's love got to do with it? Not much, especially if you say the words "I love you" in the Menominee language in front of a certain Wisconsin teacher.
Seventh grader Miranda Washinawatok, MenomineeMiranda Washinawatok
Seventh grader Miranda Washinawatok, Menominee, found this out.
Miranda speaks two languages: Menominee and English. She also plays on her basketball team. However, two Thursdays ago she was suspended for one basketball game because she spoke Menominee to a fellow classmate during class.
Miranda attends Sacred Heart Catholic Academy in Shawano, Wisconsin. The school body is over 60 percent American Indian. The school is approximately six miles from the south border of the Menominee Indian Tribe Reservation.
"On January 19 I was told by Miranda she was being benched from playing that night. I found out at 4:20 and we were back at school at 6:30 pm so I could get to the bottom of why she could not play,"
said Tanaes Washinawatok, Miranda's mother.
"Miranda kept saying she was only told by her assistant coach she was being benched because two teachers said she had a bad attitude. I wanted to know what she did to make them say she had a bad attitude."
At the school, the teachers and coaching staff seemed to want to cast blame on each other, according to Miranda's mother.
"I wanted to talk to the principal, but he was not there before the game started,"
stated Tanaes Washinawatok. Being a persistent concerned parent, Washinawatok was back at the school by 7:30 the next morning to speak to the principal.
The principal told Washinawatok that the assistant coach told him she was told by two teachers to bench Miranda for attitude problems.
The alleged 'attitude problem' turned out to be that Miranda said the Menominee word

that means

and said


in Menominee that means "I love you."
Miranda and a fellow classmate were talking to each other when Miranda told her how to say "Hello" and "I love you" in Menominee.
"The teacher went back to where the two were sitting and literally slammed her hand down on the desk and said, "How do I know you are not saying something bad?"
The story did not end there. In the next session, another teacher told Miranda she did not appreciate her getting the other teacher upset because "she is like a daughter to me."
By the time, Miranda was picked up by her mother she was upset for being suspended.
"Miranda knows quite a bit of the Menominee language. We speak it. My mother, Karen Washinawatok, is the director of the Language and Culture Commission of the Menominee Tribe. She has a degree in linguistics from the University of Arizona's College of Education-AILDI American Indian Language Development Institute. She is a former tribal chair and is strong into our culture,"
states Tanaes Washinawatok.
Washinawatok has had a total of three meetings with school officials and was promised Miranda would receive a public apology, as would the Menominee Tribe, and the apologies would be publically placed.
"On Wednesday, a letter was sent to parents and guardians. A real generic letter of apology, that really did not go into specifics as to why there was this apology,"
Washinawatok told the Native News Network Thursday evening.
"I still don't think it was enough,"
Sacred Heart Catholic Academy is operated by the Diocese of Green Bay, which ironically has an option on its answering machine for Spanish, but not Menominee. A call put in late Thursday afternoon by the Native News Network was not returned by press time.

2 Men Assaulted by Cleveland Police Department: We were jailed in Ohio without our pants(headline edited)

Two gay men who say they were punched and pinned to the ground by an off-duty police officer before being called offensive names and jailed without their trousers have sued the city and its police over what they call anti-gay bias.
Steven Ondo and Jonathan Simcox said the off-duty officer, who was a neighbor, complained about a noisy argument on the street and attacked them last April and had them arrested. A week later, they said, they were arrested by SWAT officers and were punched again at their home while lounging in T-shirts and underpants. They said they were denied a chance to get their pants and weren't provided with any in jail for a day.
The men were charged with assaulting the officer but were acquitted Oct. 20 in a non-jury trial.
Ondo, 22, and Simcox, 25, filed the U.S. District Court lawsuit against the city and its police last month and asked for unspecified damages. They said their goal was to deter biased treatment by police.
During the second arrest, the lawsuit says, the officers repeatedly referred to Ondo and Simcox as "faggots" and said "faggots don't get to wear pants to jail" when they were transported to the city lockup. Simcox's brother was at the house and asked if he could get the pants for them, but police refused, although he was allowed to get their shoes, the lawsuit says.
Police usually allow cooperative arrested people to retrieve their clothing.
A top city official said Friday the city wouldn't discuss details of the litigation.
"The city of Cleveland is aware that the lawsuit has been filed and will appropriately address this legal matter in court," interim Law Director Barbara Langhenry said in an email.
Ondo and Simcox could not be reached Friday. No phone was listed for Ondo in court records, and a phone number for Simcox provided by his attorney wasn't accepting calls.
Attorney Dan Chaplin, who represented Ondo in the criminal case, said each man weighs about 120 to 130 pounds and they were tossed around like rag dolls by their 225-pound neighbor.
About a week later, he said, a SWAT team calling them "fags" and "queer" arrested them at their home at about 5:30 a.m. on a warrant accusing them of assaulting a police officer. The team then put them in a police van and drove around for a couple of hours making other arrests, he said.
"They were humiliated and embarrassed. They were shackled to strangers while they were in their underwear and they couldn't leave," Chaplin said. "And the other guys that were arrested were allowed to get clothes on."
At the jail, he said, police mocked them, telling them "fags don't deserve to wear pants" and asked them questions about their sex lives.
"It was just real old-fashioned gay bashing by the Cleveland police department," he said.
Cleveland police and the city's Office of Professional Standards said no complaint had been filed in the case, mayoral spokeswoman Andrea Taylor said.

Vermont inmates hide pig in official police car decal

Handout photo of the Vermont State Police emblem

Inmates working at a Vermont correctional unit's print shop managed to sneak a prank image of a pig into a state police crest that is emblazoned on police cars, and 30 cruisers sported the design for the last year, officials said on Thursday.
The official crest depicts a spotted cow against a background of snowy mountains, but the inmates' version featured one of the cow's spots shaped like a pig in an apparent reference to the pejorative word for police, state police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro said.
"It dishonors the memory of those past and present members, especially for those who have lost their lives in the line of duty," Dasaro said.
Vermont contracts with correctional facilities employing prisoners to make some print products, including the cruiser decals. Police said someone who works at the print shop changed the emblem from the officially sanctioned design.
A police employee noticed the prank on Wednesday and reported it. Police said the 60 16-inch door decals would be removed as soon as it was practical.
The "source and timing" of the change to the design is under investigation, Dasaro said.
"While some may find humor in the decal modifications, the joke unfortunately comes at the expense of the taxpayers," Police Major Bill Sheets said in a statement.
