Two Toronto officers allegedly consumed cannabis-infused chocolate that had been seized as evidence hours earlier during a dispensary raid — only to have to call for backup and be taken to hospital, according to newly released police documents.

Just weeks after Const. Vittorio Dominelli and Const. Jamie Young were criminally charged in connection to the January incident, the officers appeared at the Toronto police disciplinary tribunal Tuesday, facing professional misconduct charges under Ontario’s Police Services Act.

The documents filed at the hearing detail allegations of a bizarre and potentially dangerous night that began with the alleged theft of cannabis-infused chocolate and ended with a 911 call, paramedics rushing to the scene and three officers being sent to hospital.

The hearing documents also reveal that, as a result of the officers’ alleged actions, criminal charges were withdrawn against seven people who were arrested during the raid on a west-end dispensary earlier that same night, where the officers allegedly obtained the cannabis-infused chocolate.

Struck me while watching that video that the incident took place late at night and the parking lot was practically empty. It's not like there was a crowd of people trying to park but couldn't because Sterling Brown took up two spots. The cop should just have warned Brown or ticketed him.
 
Every time I watch videos like this, it seems that the more cops show up, the more likely the incident is going to end violently.

It's not the cop's job to be hostile, just like it isn't part of your job. His job is writing a ticket/citation/whatever after he caught someone who parked their car illegally.
If you get hostile every time you see something wrong, you have a problem. Or indeed, shouldn't be a cop.

I don't disagree, but it was late at night and he was running in to grab something. Also, he's a NBA star and probably used to getting away with stuff that would get most of us tazed - Had he done this at noon, and been surrounded by fans/fanfare and was easily identifiable as an NBA player, the cops probably would have let it all slide. But since it was late at night and it was a black guy in a benz... well here is the problem when our two Americas clash.

Police ‘Command and Control’ Culture Is Often Lethal — Especially for People With Disabilities

When West Milwaukee police killed Adam Trammell, a Black resident of the city, he was unarmed and alone in his locked apartment, just taking a shower. The police came because a neighbor had called them and reported that Trammel was acting “oddly.” Police arrived to do a “wellness check,” already knowing Trammell had schizophrenia. Trammell was not wanted for a crime. He was not a threat. But he wound up dead at the hands of law enforcement.  

Footage from a police body camera shows what happened.

Police called out to “Brandon” — the wrong name. They got no answer, so officers broke down his front door. They found Trammell showering in the bathroom, pulled back his shower curtain, and told him to come out of the shower. When he did not respond immediately, they tased him. Trammell screamed, fell down in the shower, and passed out. As soon as he came to, police again began demanding that he exit the shower. When he sat there rocking, they tased him again. He screamed again. Over the next 30 minutes, the police tased him 18 times. 

Trammell died on his living room floor.  He was 22. (...)

Police stops in Los Angeles are highly concentrated within just a small portion of the population, and the Los Angeles Police Department has been using targeted predictive policing technology that may exacerbate that focused scrutiny. That’s according to a report put out this week by the research and activist organization Stop LAPD Spying Coalition, which draws from the testimony of city residents and newly released police documents to paint a picture of a “racist feedback loop” where a “disproportionate amount of police resources are allocated to historically hyper-policed communities.”

Survey results included in the report suggest that very few people in Los Angeles bear the brunt of most police interactions: 2 percent of residents who responded to the survey reported being stopped by police between 11 and 30 times a week or more, while 76 percent of respondents reported never being stopped at all. The 300 survey respondents were distributed across geography, race, age, and gender. In focus groups, people who lived in areas heavily targeted by police described a state of constant surveillance. Asking “how often do I see police in my area is like asking me how many times do I see a bird in the day,” said one resident.

What’s more, the LAPD has been using technology from the data-mining firm Palantir that may amplify that concentration, as part of a predictive policing program that targets and surveils specific individuals within select neighborhoods based off their recent history with the criminal justice system.

Officers and analysts who work on Operation LASER, or Los Angeles Strategic Extraction and Restoration, are tasked with maintaining an ongoing list of community residents to monitor, by creating “Chronic Offender Bulletins” for so-called persons of interest. Each of the 16 department divisions that currently use the program is required to maintain a minimum of a dozen of these “bulletins,” which are intended to help officers “identify the most active violent chronic offenders” in a given geographical area.

That identification process has two stages: an initial screening phase, in which a “crime intelligence analyst” subjectively decides whether the police records, like arrest reports and field interview cards, associated with an individual are “relevant” enough to move them to a “workup” phase. The “workup” involves software provided by Palantir that pulls data on criminal history and affiliations, and from license plate readers and social media networks, and uses it to create a “chronic offender score” for the individual. (...)

"I don't have answers to why this happened," Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz told reporters.

Deputy Taylor Lindsey, 25, and Sgt Noel Ramirez, 29, were eating at a Chinese restaurant in the small town of Trenton when they were shot.

The suspect, John Hubert Highnote, 59, died at the scene, police say.

Police have yet to establish a motive in the Thursday afternoon shooting.

"What do you expect happens when you demonise law enforcement to the extent it's been demonised? Every type of hate, every type of put-down you can think of," Sheriff Schultz said at a news conference, adding that the suspect was a "coward".

"I don't know why, but..."

"I'm not saying I know why, but I do know why."

US sheriff once said it was 'financially better' to kill than badly injure suspects
Donny Youngblood made comments during 2006 campaign for sheriff of Kern county, which has highest rate of police killings in US

The sheriff of a county profiled by the Guardian after it was found to have the highest rate of killings by police in the US once said it is “better financially” for local authorities if officers kill suspects rather than badly injure them.

Sheriff Donny Youngblood of Kern county, California, who is currently running for re-election, made the remarks while addressing rank-and-file officers during his first campaign in 2006. Video of the meeting was recently found by an officers’ union.

“You know what happens when a guy makes a bad shooting on somebody and kills them? Three million bucks and the family goes away after a long back and forth,” Youngblood said.

He went on to say: “Which way do you think is better financially – to cripple them or kill them – for the county?” An unidentified man offscreen said “kill them”, to which Youngblood replied: “Absolutely. Because if they’re crippled we get to take care of them for life. And that cost goes way up.”

The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kern County was the subject of a Guardian series after 13 people were killed there by law enforcement officers during 2015. During the same period, nine people were killed by the NYPD in all of New York City, which had almost 10 times as many residents and about 23 times as many law enforcement officers.

The series prompted inquiries by California’s attorney general and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which are ongoing. The number of killings by police in the county subsequently fell sharply. The Guardian found five people were killed there in 2016. The Mapping Police Violence project found six deaths in 2017.
