Former Police Chief Caught Telling Officers To Frame Black People

A former police chief of Biscayne Park and two officers are charged with falsely pinning four burglaries on a teenager just to impress village leaders with a perfect crime-solving record.

But the accusations revealed in federal court last month left out far uglier details of past policing practices in tranquil Biscayne Park, a leafy wedge of suburbia just north of Miami Shores.

Records obtained by the Miami Herald suggest that during the tenure of former chief Raimundo Atesiano, the command staff pressured some officers into targeting random black people to clear cases.

“If they have burglaries that are open cases that are not solved yet, if you see anybody black walking through our streets and they have somewhat of a record, arrest them so we can pin them for all the burglaries,” one cop, Anthony De La Torre, said in an internal probe ordered in 2014. “They were basically doing this to have a 100% clearance rate for the city.”

In a report from that probe, four officers — a third of the small force — told an outside investigator they were under orders to file the bogus charges to improve the department’s crime stats. Only De La Torre specifically mentioned targeting blacks, but former Biscayne Park village manager Heidi Shafran, who ordered the investigation after receiving a string of letters from disgruntled officers, said the message seemed clear for cops on the street.

“The letters said police were doing a lot of bad things,” Shafran told the Herald. “It said police officers were directed to pick up people of color and blame the crimes on them.”

Beyond the apparent race targeting, the report — never reviewed in village commission meetings — described a department run like a dysfunctional frat house. It outlines allegations that the brass openly drank on duty, engaged in a host of financial shenanigans and that the No. 2 in command during the period, Capt. Lawrence Churchman, routinely spouted racist and sexist insults.

Amid the probe, Atesiano abruptly resigned in 2014. Afterward, there was a stark change in village crime-busting statistics.

During his roughly two-year tenure as chief, 29 of 30 burglary cases were solved, including all 19 in 2013. In 2015, the year after he left, records show village cops did not clear a single one of 19 burglary cases.

Village leaders say they have since overhauled the department, calling the ousted police chief’s actions “appalling.”

Atesiano, 52, has strongly denied the allegations. He pleaded not guilty in the federal case and is now awaiting trial on charges of civil-rights violations. Two of his former officers, Raul Fernandez and Charlie Dayoub, also have pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial. Sources say they are cooperating against their one-time boss.

The federal case doesn’t raise allegations of racial profiling, but records show the false charges were filed against a black Haitian-American teen identified only as T.D. in the indictment. Whether or how many other blacks might have been targets is unclear. State and local arrest records differ somewhat, but of the 30 burglary arrests documented in 2013 and 2014, nearly all were of black males.

But at least one other case is under review in an ongoing investigation: the arrest of a black transient man, Erasmus Banmah, 35, who was charged with five vehicle burglaries on the same day in February 2014. Each was dropped immediately by prosecutors when Biscayne Park cops failed to cooperate, records show.

The former chief argues he demanded diligence from his officers, not illegal actions, His attorney pointed blame at Atesiano’s former underlings for any resulting problematic arrests.

“Encouraging, or even demanding, that public employees raise their performance levels to meet the citizens’ expectations is not an invitation for those public employees to cut corners or falsify documents,” his defense attorney, Richard Docobo, said.

Over the last decade, the department has also seen an officer arrested on charges of holding his wife hostage, a troubled officer sued for excessive force and another officer charged with beating a suspect.

At the helm was Atesiano, a burly and mustachioed officer who was hired in 2008 and worked his way through the ranks while penning a column in the village newsletter warning residents to beware of trespassers and to report people crossing the railroad track.

Atesiano had come to the village after an earlier case involving a doctored arrest record. In 2006, Atesiano, then a sergeant in Sunny Isles Beach, agreed to leave there after investigators discovered he’d forged a man’s name on a notice to appear in court after police arrested him for marijuana. Prosecutors told him to resign or face arrest.

Atesiano left but landed with Biscayne Park two years later and rebuilt his reputation. The village named him officer of the year in 2011. Two years later, he was promoted to replace the retiring chief and he immediately began touting impressive progress in solving home break-ins and property crimes, always a priority issue in otherwise quiet suburbs.

“This year, as we stand, we have a 100 percent clearance rate on burglary cases in the Village of Biscayne Park,” Atesiano declared to hearty applause during a commission meeting in July 2013. “This is the first time I’ve ever known that to happen in any department that I’ve ever been in.”

Many of the officers’ other complaints focused on Churchman, a former Sweetwater cop who was second in command in the village. Like his boss, Churchman also had a history with altered records. Sweetwater had demoted him for allegations of falsifying education records to earn an extra $40 a week. Biscayne Park hired him in 2008.

In the report, seven fellow officers described the captain as Atesiano’s enforcer, belittling cops, threatening them with firing, and bullying them into paying cash fees for working off-duty security gigs and into paying insurance deductibles with cash when they got into an accident in their police cruisers. His disdain for minorities also was “common knowledge,” Officer Harrison told the investigator. The report quotes officers saying Churchman used racial, homophobic and gender slurs.

“The captain has said on several different occasions he doesn’t want any n—–s, f—–s or women b—–s working at Biscayne Park,” Harrison said, according to Scott’s investigative report.
Churchman, through his attorney, denied using such language. In response to questions from the Herald, lawyer Kristi Kassebaum issued a statement quoting her client: “That is a ridiculous lie. That’s just not the way I think and certainly not the kind of language I use in public or in private.”

CVS Apologizes After “Coupon Carl” Calls Police On Black Cutsomer

CVS apologized Sunday to a black customer who said a white manager called the police after deciding that a coupon she tried to use at a Chicago pharmacy was fraudulent.

The manager and a second employee who was involved are “no longer employed by CVS Health,” the company said in a statement on its Twitter account Monday, adding that it had investigated the incident.

The company said that CVS has “firm non-discrimination policies in place to help ensure that all customers are treated with respect and dignity. Profiling or any other type of discriminatory behavior is strictly prohibited.”

The customer, Camilla Hudson, told “Today” in an interview that aired Monday that she was more upset by the way the manager handled the situation.

“I don’t take issue — not then, not now — with him not accepting the coupon,” she said. “It’s how he didn’t accept the coupon.”

Hudson first shared in a Facebook post how she presented the coupon for a defective product to a pharmacy manager last week. The manager told her he’d never seen a similar coupon and believed it was a fraud.

“When I asked for his name and his title/role within the store, he became agitated and rude,” she wrote. “When I pulled out my phone to document what happened and exactly what he’d said to me (AND how he’d said it!) he turned his back and walked away from me.”

A second manager told her that if she didn’t leave immediately, he’d call the police, she wrote. In a viral video that Hudson posted on Facebook, she can be heard confronting a manager, who appears to be describing Hudson to the authorities over the phone.

“Tell them that I will be here when they arrive,” she said. “I have ID and I will share it.”
The manager, who identifies himself in the video as Morry Matson, was a state delegate for Donald Trump in 2016, an aldermanic candidate on Chicago’s North Side and president of the Illinois affiliate of the Log Cabin Republicans, a conservative group that advocates for LGBTQ rights, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which viewed Matson’s no-longer-active campaign website.

In an interview with the LGBTQ newspaper Windy City Times in April, Matson said the affiliate had recently been “reactivated” to remind Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner that “we still need to work on workplace discrimination. It’s still a problem in Illinois. Adoption, health costs, health insurance, keeping the cost of pills down — that’s important in the gay community.”

Matson didn’t respond to a message seeking comment on Sunday.

As with other recent incidents of alleged racial bias, he quickly earned a nickname on social media — #CouponCarl.

CVS said the employees involved in the incident won’t be working at that Chicago location pending the outcome of its internal investigation.

Hudson, meanwhile, said that after three officers arrived, she left the store at their urging. She still wants to know why the situation escalated to having law enforcement called.

“There’s nothing I did or said that would explain why he was interacting with me and treating me in the manner that he was,” she told “Today.”

The Fight For White Civil Rights

 

Less than a year after deadly clashes at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., the main organizer has gained federal approval for another demonstration — across the street from the White House.

The National Park Service announced Wednesday it had approved the “white civil rights” rally for Lafayette Square the weekend of Aug. 11-12. That is the anniversary of the “Unite the Right” protest, which sparked a national furor with its blatant displays of racism. President Trump amplified the controversy when he initially failed to condemn the white supremacists.

Becky’s Nails Matter

Community responds after viral video of woman’s racist rant at a Lutz nail salon

The video was taken at Bali Nail Spa in Lutz.”If they don’t understand the language they should go back to their own country period,” said by a woman shown in a video shared on Facebook thousands of times.

“You sound nasty, your language sounds nasty. It actually sounds like you were born out of a f***ing hermit crab,” said the woman to the nail technician while getting a manicure.

The nail shop owner, Karen Vu, is shown in the video being polite and trying to calm the lady down. Vu says the lady in the video is a regular customer and sometimes acts unpredictably.

“If I wanna go to a nail salon, I want them to talk English so they can understand when I want a God d**n top coat,” said the lady.

Vu says she felt sorry for the lady and felt bad that it affected other customers’ experience at the nail salon.

“I don’t mind what she said because she doesn’t have control over her mind,” said Vu.

The nail technicians say they’re not angry or upset, but the customer taking the video had enough.

“You’re being nasty. You asked my opinion a minute ago and I’m f***ing telling it to you, you don’t call them hermit crabs,” said the woman holding the camera before putting her phone down and approaching the lady.

Other customers who have seen the video are also offended.

 

“I feel so sorry for the people who are trying to make living here. No matter where you come from this is a melting pot country,” said customer Renee Puchalla.

Jennifer Verge is one of the thousands who saw the video on Facebook. She drove 30 minutes to give the nail technician the tip he never received from the lady.

“I just wanted to come over here tell them they don’t deserve to be treated the way that they were from that lady or for anyone else for that matter. God just spoke to me and told me to bring him what he didn’t get from the lady because he got jipped when he’s supposed to be paid for the work that he did and that’s unacceptable,” said Verge.

We tried to reach out to the woman making the comments in the video and the woman who took the video and didn’t hear anything back from either of them.

Racist nurse raises 15K on GoFundMe after making fun of black man murdered by police

The nurse who was fired after saying that police shooting victim Stephon Clark “deserved” to be killed by cops has raised over $15,000 to help pay her bills.

Faith Linthicum created a GoFundMe page Saturday in hopes of hitting her $25,000 goal.

“I was recently fired from my job as a nurse at Kaiser Permanente for exercising my First Amendment right to free speech,” her page reads. “I assure you, and for those that know me, I am not a hateful or discriminatory person. As a person of faith, and a nurse, I love all people and treat everyone equally.”

Linthicum says she needs the money to “pay rent, buy food for myself and my two dogs” and “make my car payments/insurance.”

The nurse commented on a post about Clark’s death, calling him “stupid.”

“Yeah but he was running from the police jumping over fences and breaking in peoples houses…why run??!!! He deserved it for being stupid,” she wrote. The post was later taken down.

Sacramento police shot Clark, an unarmed black man, eight times in his grandmother’s backyard on March 18.

GoFundMe did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
