"Stupid" seems to be the word for this

Pedro De-Jesus

Mr. De-Jesus rolled his red pickup truck up in front of a property on Foxdale, in full view of the security camera facing the street. Then he stole "multiple" televisions from that property, loading them into the rear of his red pickup truck. Then he drove his red pickup truck over to the pawn shop. So when our police went to visit the pawn shop to see if the TVs had shown up there, voila! They were all sitting there in the red pickup truck.

Burglary and Possession of Stolen Property Arrests

On 04/06/2016, at approximately 0853 hours, DHSPD Police Officers responded to the 11000 block of Foxdale Dr. regarding a residential burglary where multiple televisions were reported stolen. Officers obtained video surveillance footage of a red Ford pickup truck in front of the location at the time the victim's burglary alarm was activated. Another reporting party advised seeing a suspicious red Ford pickup truck in the area a few minutes later. Officers conducted an area check for the vehicle and located a similar vehicle at a local pawn shop with multiple televisions in the tailgate. Officers contacted Pedro De-Jesus and four other delinquent juveniles.

Investigation and further evidence revealed they were all in possession of the stolen property and connected to the burglary. Pedro De-Jesus and the four other juveniles were arrested and booked into Riverside County Jail and Juvenile Hall. There is some other outstanding property located that did not belong to the victim. If anyone has any further information regarding this case please contact Officer Perez. (DHSPD Case# 1604D-1391)

How Many Hands Did They Think This Guy Had?

Math problem: if the man is accused of driving naked, drinking, and masturbating, how many hands does the witness see (allegedly)? The tricky world of press freedom and judicial limits placed on it somewhere in Britain—Thanet, maybe, if that's a place.

Public Indecency Charge

Daniel Paulsen

The original mugshot from the DHS Police (left) was so poor, I thought some Dreamscoping was called for. Definite improvement. Mr. Paulsen is accused of standing out in the middle of the street in broad daylight and masturbating. He gets another 5 minutes of infamy for that.

San Diego Police Chief Wants To Get Sued

Or, so it would seem. Video from police-worn body cameras is released to the public on an ad hoc basis as determined by the Chief and Mayor in San Diego. In response to a memo from the city attorney stating that the city council could establish a written policy for those releases, Chief Shelly Zimmerman said no thanks, she'll continue to just make it up in her own head as she goes along. Hello lawsuit.

Cop BS

We've all seen videos of cops making the mistake of trying to stop someone from videoing them, even when they are at a distance and not interfering. But I've never seen anything like this! NYC cop actually chases down a motorcyclist for the sole reason of wearing a GoPro camera. That was it. Says you can't have GoPros.

I don't think this is going to end until we see at least one video of cops doing every single possible stupid thing on camera.

Total Waste Of Perfectly Good Pepper Spray

We've seen several instances of police misdeeds documented on video because some cops are taking a long time to realize there are cameras EVERYwhere now. You would think, though, that a police officer would know that motorcyclists have more GoPros than any other travelers on the highway. Fort Worth PD Tracey Knight learned that the hard way.

Unfortunately, we don't get the enjoyment of watching the ultimate punishment: the towing of the Ferrari to a police impound lot.

How To Have Fun In Florida

Noe DeJesus, a 33-year old Floridian, knows that to have fun you should drive a Cadillac at 110 MPH while naked with three women (if that suits your taste) and a bottle of Crown Royal in the car. But he did several things to mar the fun. First, he had a 12-pack of Corona on the console between the front seats. Corona. The beer you drink in a Cadillac should have flavor. On top of that he was drunk. And he was driving without a license. You've probably already guessed that the reason we know about all this is because a cop pulled him over. Mr. DeJesus refused to voluntarily go along with a field sobriety test, so to the jail he went. I guess inability to put your pants on is not one of the standard sobriety tests.

Larry Daniel Kaufman, an unarmed, gay Wiccan is credited with saving four lives at the San Bernardino shooting before he himself was shot and killed.

He was in the courtyard eating lunch with several of people near the corridor where he had been working as the shooting began. Daniel, always more concerned about everyone around him than himself, began screaming “Get out! Go! Get out now! Hurry!” He began pushing people out of harms way, urging them to the safety of the door before he was shot and killed.

The suspect started the delivery truck, but did not know how to operate the vehicle and fled the area on foot, abandoning the victim's vehicle. The suspect was described as Hispanic male adult, 18-20 years, thin build, short hair, and not wearing any clothes.

GoPro & Speeding Motorcyclists

Just because you're smart enough NOT to put your GoPro video of yourself going WAY over the speed limit on social media, it still might be used as evidence against you. Two guys doing 118 MPH right in front of God, a state trooper and everybody. GoPro was seized at the scene...and then the police had to get a warrant before looking at the contents.
