Chilling Video

Watch the prisoner's hands:



What the hell did he get off of that necklace? It seems to have gone from a diamond shape to a triangle. A key? A key and a blade? And he's really going with the mouth, playing to the cameras and pretty much telling them he's about to escape and do some damage.

Sharpshooters killed him later, but not before he took the life of a Mobile, Alabama officer, the one driving the car in the video.

I read this Article today about this incident...

Mobile Police Chief Michael Williams spoke at length Thursday about the slaying, ending speculation surrounding a diamond-shaped medallion Wallace was wearing that was believed to have played a role in Green’s death.

“The necklace that Wallace had around his neck had nothing to do with injuries or stabbings. It’s not the weapon.” The small knife that was recovered is “consistent with the stab wounds and was not something that would have been concealed in the medallion,” Williams said.

A preliminary investigation also revealed that Wallace had a small handcuff key in his shoe that he likely used to slip out of the restraints while being transported from police headquarters to Mobile County Metro Jail.

“We believe somewhere between police headquarters and Metro, Wallace took his handcuffs off,” Williams said. “We believe the handcuff key was concealed somewhere on his body. We don’t know where. We may never know where.”

I googled this story and the mobile Alabama pd states that the medallion has nothing to do with the officers death.the shithead apparently had a handcuff key hidden in his shoe. Uncuffed himself and was still in possession of a 3" knife. When exiting the squad car he acted as though he was still cuffed. Put his left hand in front of his face causing the p.o to realize he was uncuffed and attempt to grab his left hand. The shithead then with his right hand stabbed the p.o in the neck with the knife once then one more time in the back. Still a horrible story but just wanted to point out what the mobile pd had stated. Stay safe all!

Sometimes the most obvious things to remember are often the ones easily lost/forgotten to complacency.

There was a good reason why Roberts (and occasionally Marsh) gave you a good crack upside your head if you didn't have your hands in front of you, chest-high and at the ready when you passed them in the halls at 1300.

Sadly, the caliber of Academy instructors has consistently diminished over time, as evidenced by the cluelessness of many of the recruits I've trained over the years. Eliminating the FTO program was the coup de gras for any hopes of solid recruits with any type of regularity. Then add in relaxed hiring standards, etc, etc...

Point being - remember the basics, and make a conscious effort to stay alert at all times.

My condolences to the family of the officer killed and the entire Mobile police force.

Report: Man set on fire in West Ridge

A male victim was reportedly set on fire in Chicago’s West Ridge, West Rogers Park neighborhood.

Monday, around 9:47 p.m., police were notified that a male victim was on fire on the 6000 block of North Mozart Street, near Mozart and Glenlake, on the city’s North Side.

The 911 caller said the victim was on fire in front of a house.

At 9:54 p.m., a responding officer confirmed a male victim was set on fire, but the officer was still trying to get more information.

At 9:56 p.m., someone, presumably the same officer who verified the incident, requested a supervisor.

I first would like to pass along my condolences to the victim's family and Mobile Police Department. This was very unfortunate and sad to hear. This piece of shit scum should have suffered a more lengthy and excruciating death rather than quick gun shot wounds. Anyway, I would like to take this time to REMIND and urge my fellow officers to please always search, double-check, triple-check and have partner search(if applicable). Everyone misses items at times, but don't be too close to the shithead for him to make a move. I see officers on numerous occasions doing half-ass searches. Officers just like anyone fall guilty to "going through the motions," but please take those extra few minutes to make sure shitbird is cleared. R.I.P. Officer and everyone be safe out there.

Unfortunately, the liberals have created a society where the criminal is always right. Look around in the "hood", what do you see? Bars, alarms and police. Almost like you are in prison on the outside. Obviously the officer had to bring the guy inside BY HIMSELF. Due to society, this is no longer a task where any officer should deal with any prisoner 1-on-1. LESSON LEARNED: Search EVERYONE and dont leave anything in reach of a suspects hands!!!! RIP to the officer, and condolences to his family.

There has never been a safety grievance because it would never hold up. You're in a small space where you'll be taking assholes handcuffs off, he sees the lockup and finally realizes he's being locked up. There have been plenty of police officers hurt at this point of the arrest that justifies a gun locker.

Other then the obvious fact that they City is not buying enough shields for everyone look into the price.

A quick google search of t he company and their website you notice that similar shields sell for no more then $37. According to the article they are buying them for $84 and $51!

I guess Chicago is the only City that when you buy something in bulk that the vender charges you a large mark up.

Not to be critical of Mobile,but WTF was this ignorant savage doing with anything metal on his body for? I know they say he was stabbed w something else, but that item looked sharp and something that size could hide a key or other contraband. I took a loaded revolver off an arrestee coming into my lockup when i was filling in for lockup keeper years ago. He was arrested by tact team rounding up public drinkers to bolster stat numbers. They obviously never put a hand under his junk to check for weapon which had capacity to kill 6 people. Be careful out there, its your ass on the line. I hope there is a heaven for the ofcr. that lost his life, and a hell for the pos that took him from his family!

Sorry Brother, I disagree with you on this one. The practice of not carrying a gun in processing or lock up is a good one. The slain officer had not stowed his gun yet, and it ended up becoming the shithead's gun. This is exactly why we use two person cars for prisoner transports.

Often government procurement requirements preclude just ordering stuff off the Internet.

One might think that it is because they are all crooked or something, but many times the rules put into place to "make things fair" end up adding a lot of cost because a government purchasing agent is just plain not allowed to buy like any normal person would.

It is also possible that the lower cost suppliers are unable to supply in the needed quantities.

I work up north. Today I had NATO/G8 training, something happened and I'm not quite sure what. Our instructor who seemed pretty good, said some stuff about leadership and direction up above and that the training might be minimal. At about 2 hours through, some sgt came in and acted like an ass. He pointed at the instructor and had him replaced. It was very weird. The training got weird and the instructors seemed awkward. The sgt never came back, but I've seen him in the academy. What ashame that an instructor getsbtreated like that. Truth is, the training seems minimal at best. Another guy asked about our uniforms getting covered in urine and what was going to be done but the instructor was without answers. Very sad.

2/13/2012 08:45:00 PM

I was in the class and agree it was very awkward. The sgt got his panties in a bunch and stormed out. He never returned to class. I guess riot training is too hard for the adminsitrative sgt. Everyone else stayed for the class. That Greek entitlement makes you special.

2/14/2012 07:45:00 AM

We would like to believe that officer safety and training has the highest priority, especially at the academy. Sad to say, this is not the case. The G-8 instructors try their best but they lack the suuport from white shirts. The primary exhibit being the temper tantrum thrown by the greek administrative sgt disrupting the class. He never returned to class. He must have been so upset he was lost. I feel sorry for the instructor who was verbally torn apart in the hallway. Hello Howard.

The 'similar' shields are made from 2mm thick non-shatterproof acrylic plastic. when struck with a hard object, they break into large, sharp shards. This shield is 4mm thick shatterproof polycarbonate. It meets the NIJ standards for riot protection.

I like the Jim Marsh reference, forgot about that. Although I never got smacked, it was a little lesson like that which made and kept you alert.
Too often we see coppers standing around all facing the same direction at a scene with their hands tucked in their vests or in their pockets.
Very very risky position to be in. Think about it and try to rid yourself of that habit, especially when you don't know who'll come up behind you.
One other point about searches, whether before or after arrest, detention and transport...
Why is it the Dept doesn't have more efficient metal detectors for (wagon) transports ?
Is it too costly? Or are funds being squandered on CAPS coloring books and frisbees?
Wouldn't it be nice if FOP made these available instead of a St. Paddy's Day party or Fishing Tourney?

I know that it is a pain in the balls but double locking the cuffs may have helped. (I said "may".) I have a bitch of a time unlocking them on somebody else. If you were cuffed and had to manipulate the locking device, you probably would be giving tell-tale movements that would draw attention to you. Inconvenience vs. your safety...something to consider.

This is not Europe where it is not considered deadly force.

Regarding the media, I agree that the cameraman may not have realized what happened until afterwards. The general tone of the reporter actually sounds neutral, if not irritated with the POS who kept "running his mouth."

The media should be at least neutral, report the facts without commentary or blatant bias to the police. The bonus is when they actually recognize a bad guy for what he or she is. How nice that would be in the Chicago MSM.

Cuff these mutts top of the wrist to top of the wrist and fuck 'em when they complain that the cuffs hurt. Cuffs weren't designed to be comfy and if you don't like it, don't have cause to ever have to wear them. That kid shouldn't be able to reach around to the front of his body like that.

I work up north. Today I had NATO/G8 training, something happened and I'm not quite sure what. Our instructor who seemed pretty good, said some stuff about leadership and direction up above and that the training might be minimal. At about 2 hours through, some sgt came in and acted like an ass. He pointed at the instructor and had him replaced. It was very weird. The training got weird and the instructors seemed awkward. The sgt never came back, but I've seen him in the academy. What ashame that an instructor getsbtreated like that. Truth is, the training seems minimal at best. Another guy asked about our uniforms getting covered in urine and what was going to be done but the instructor was without answers. Very sad.

2/13/2012 08:45:00 PM

I was in the class and agree it was very awkward. The sgt got his panties in a bunch and stormed out. He never returned to class. I guess riot training is too hard for the adminsitrative sgt. Everyone else stayed for the class. That Greek entitlement makes you special.

We would like to believe that officer safety and training has the highest priority, especially at the academy. Sad to say, this is not the case. The G-8 instructors try their best but they lack the suuport from white shirts. The primary exhibit being the temper tantrum thrown by the greek administrative sgt disrupting the class. He never returned to class. He must have been so upset he was lost. I feel sorry for the instructor who was verbally torn apart in the hallway. Hello Howard.

That's because the "higher ups" he was talking about are the Sgts brother.....Steve Georgas

They found out that the offender had a hand cuff key in his shoe and a 3 inch knife on his person. Had nothing to do with the thing around his neck.

024 just a had a kid w/ a mac10 in his waistband in an interview room for over an hour. Searching these Asshole's is the Key!

I can wrap my head around missing a Knife...but how the FUCK do you miss a Mac10? Its not exactly a small weapon FFS.

Did the officer have to stow his gun in a locker before he entered the station like we have to do in Chicago? Maybe that was where the prisoner got the upper hand on him. And why has their never been a safety grievence filed in Chicago over this practice? FOP. FOP. Are you listening?

Trust me Mike Shield's is done listening. He's getting his Commander's pay along with his cronies and now they are living large. He sure talked a good game. Lame Ass Union!! Boys and Girls we are on our own. Don't think the Union is going to do anything for us.

Unfortunately, the liberals have created a society where the criminal is always right. Look around in the "hood", what do you see? Bars, alarms and police. Almost like you are in prison on the outside. Obviously the officer had to bring the guy inside BY HIMSELF. Due to society, this is no longer a task where any officer should deal with any prisoner 1-on-1. LESSON LEARNED: Search EVERYONE and dont leave anything in reach of a suspects hands!!!! RIP to the officer, and condolences to his family.
+++++++

I still remember Sgt. Kushner telling us back in '94, that when you're given a prisoner for transport who is already cuffed, ALWAYS search the prisoner…even if the other officer tells you they searched them…THIS IS WHY. If you note, the transporting officer simply opened the car door for the prisoner… REST HIS SOUL…If ONLY he'd been taught by Kushner.

You're obviously a young buck that doesn't remember that the reason we do not allow weapons in processing rooms, lock-ups or interview rooms is because of a tragic incident that occurred several years ago in an Area.

Those who don't know their history, are doomed to repeat it.

Years ago Caliber Press held 2 or 3 day "Street Survival" Seminars. They were excellent.

Police academy training for officer safety is a pathetic joke. Departments are more concerned about political correctness and sensitivity than officer survival.

While no municipal official will ever admit it, it is (financially for them) to have you get killed than it is for you to use force to defend yourself.

How hard would it have been for that cameraman to bring it to the attention of the officer. Not hard at all.

--------------------

Cops are not known for reacting well toward such unsolicited advice.

It could also be that since it was flapping in the breeze out in the open like that, it was just so obvious that someone looking on might assume that since it was so visible it had to be OK, given the number of cops who had to have seen it and chose to do nothing about it.

It does not appear that removing the necklace would have prevented this tragic incident anyway.

It does seem very odd that the guy reaches for his necklace like that though. It will probably never be known with any certainty why he did so.

Based on the dexterity he showed in getting his hands around to the necklace, I suspect that the suspect practiced getting out of cuffs. It is not real hard to learn to do. Many amateur (and professional) magicians have learned how to open handcuffs quite easily and remarkably fast. It does require a certain amount of skill and dexterity, but the skill can be acquired pretty easily and it is not an especially hard thing to learn.

The bad thing is that there is no non-trivial defense against someone who knows how to escape from handcuffs, especially if they have a key.

I always hate to see one of the good guys go down. It is not much of a consolation that the bad guy was taken out later. RIP good guy. May the bad guy rot in hell for eternity.

It is not like hidden handcuff keys are anything new though. More than 30 years ago I had to take a class to work as a security guard. The guy that taught the class was a jail guard that worked at the CC jail. He had a number of stories about the places jail guards had found handcuff keys on inmates that had already been searched multiple times. He said he had several secreted on his person due to his fear of being taken captive and cuffed with his own handcuffs. He actually demonstrated to the class how fast he could get out of cuffs. It was an eye opening demonstration.

Not a cop.

Safety Grievances have no power of enforcement. The City loses safety grievances and then still ignores the issue. No enforcement.

The City would have to be on the losing end of a multi million dollar lawsuit to even take notice. And then they don't change behavior. Look at how many times the City gets sued for the same thing, over and over again.

I have worked monitoring the PODS.

PLEASE GUYS AND GALS, SEARCH AND CUFF THESE ANIMALS IF YOU"RE GOING TO PUT THEM IN YOUR CAR! The cuffs can come off after the stop.
PLEASE be more careful out there! These animals have NO fear of the police anymore! I'm nearing the end of my career and I'm tired of going to officers funerals!

Soooo - Sgt. S. G. got credit for a class he never completed?
Did he throw the tantrum on purpose to get out of class.
Weren't there other supervisors in the class that were unaffected and unmoved by the instructor's comments.
Soooo - what was the real motive behind the short Sgt.'s actions?

It was classic, the instructor was talking shit about the exempts in class and the sgt, who is related to one of them got him removed from the class and then I was told he let the instructor have it. However, Kind of stupid on the instructors part and can't blame sg for standing up either.

Yes good advice and safety tips. But why not give your help and support and useful street knowledge on the street to younger officers instead of hiding in a pod room watching cameras????
