Video of Nandi Cain Jr. getting beaten by Sacramento police officer prompts investigation

  • Bystander footage showing a Sacramento, California, police officer slamming Nandi Cain Jr. — a black man — to the ground and punching him repeatedly in the face during a jaywalking stop on Monday has prompted an internal investigation, the Sacramento Police Department said in a statement.
  • “The actions of the involved Sacramento police officer are disturbing and [do] not appear to be reasonable based upon the circumstances,” the statement read. “The Sacramento Police Department holds itself to the highest professional standard and the actions that were observed are not indicative of the dedicated women and men who work for the department.”
  • Naomi Montaie, the local woman who recorded the incident with her cellphone camera and posted it on Facebook, told reporters that she had never seen anything quite like it. Read more. (4/12/2017 1:03 PM)

Plot: You are a new profiler at the BAU, fairly young and inexperienced.  Ever since you graduated from the Academy, you’ve been steadily climbing up the government towards your ambitious goal of eventually becoming director of the Bureau.  The BAU was supposed to be just another routine position, but now you’re worried you bit off more than you can chew.

“Your record is impressive,” the unit chief nodded as you sat down across from him.  You watched as he closed your file and folded his hands on top of it – a typical sign of professional reproach.  “Agents Creed and Hoswiner had nothing but high remarks,” he continued, openly studying you, “You are more than qualified to join the BAU.”

“I sense you have hesitations, Agent Hotchner,” you said, meeting his gaze.

He paused for a moment before nodding at the file on his desk, “Any other supervisor would look over your extensive experience as a valuable asset.”

You pursed your lips and asked warily, “And you?”

“I see it as blind ambition, which can jeopardize my team,” he answered decisively, “I need dedicated agents, not career-driven bureaucrats.”

A disturbing dash-cam video captured moment Sacramento police decided to run over Joseph Mann

Recently unveiled dash-cam footage shows Sacramento Police Department officers attempting to hit and run over homeless black man Joseph Mann, who was undergoing a mental health crisis, with their police cruiser before opening fire and killing him. Although the officers have attempted to defend their actions, witnesses from the scene have revealed another side of the story.

Teresa Lisbon. 

Born in Chicago, oldest of four children. Mother was killed by a drunk driver when she was young. Father became an abusive alcoholic, leaving her in charge of her three younger brothers. Was engaged to her high school sweetheart, Greg Marshall, but broke it off to go to school in California through a track and field scholarship. Graduated from the police academy and joined the Sacramento Police Department where she worked under Sam Bosco and earned her moniker ‘Saint Teresa’. Was later recruited by the newly established California Bureau of Investigation to head the homicide unit. There, she would receive her longest and most infamous case– apprehending the serial killer known as Red John.
