  1. *Note* I was out of the officer Friday, so the Thursday recap is also included in this post.
    Here are the 15 reports of police misconduct tracked for Thursday, November 15 and Friday, November 16, 2012:

He shoved a handcuffed prisoner [Pedro Temich] into a jail cell and cracked his skull. The charge has a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine. [two other men have filed excessive force allegations against the city: Robert Methvin, Joseph Bryans; an investigation was also opened against Sgt. Leighton "Buddy" Gibbs for changing his story]

He is a 17-year veteran of the department. “He’s been stripped of all law enforcement power,” said the department spokesman. “It causes a pall over the scores and scores of deputy sheriffs that every day do their job.”
    • Warren County, Virginia: Two deputies [Bradley Pugh, Michael A. Robinson] were charged with unlawful hunting. One was also charged with hunting, trapping, or fishing without a license and leaving wanton waste. The officers voluntarily resigned after the incident. [3rd deptuty also resigned: Eric Ramey]

    • Selma, North Carolina: An officer [Travis Abbott] handcuffed a nurse [unidentified] in the ER when she refused to draw blood because he didn’t have a court order. The nurse who called 911 said the officer “came and just arrested and made a huge scene with our house administrators. He just handcuffed her – he could care less about anything – in front of the middle of our ER. And this whole ER is in complete chaos, and frankly, somebody needs to come here and handle it.” The officer has been suspended with pay.
    • New York, New York: An officer [Rishi Gobin, 34] reported he was stabbed by an intruder when he wasn’t. He has been charged with falsely reporting an incident.
