Video shows Stockton teacher dragging student

A Northern California P.E. teacher is charged with abusing a child after trying to force her into a swimming pool during class. The struggle was captured on camera by another student. The incident happened at Edison High in Stockton during P.E. class at the schools pool.

The video shows the teacher, Denny Peterson, trying to drag a 14-year-old girl into the pool back in August.

The teen reportedly did not want to participate get in the pool because she just had her hair done that morning for an evening event.

Peterson was put on paid leave for a month, but then assigned to another Stockton school. He was charged with misdemeanor corporal injury to a child.

The family says they plan to file a lawsuit.

Ferguson officer accused of raping pregnant woman:

‘You’re the type of girl that can get me in trouble’

The federal lawsuit against Jaris Hayden accuses him of ordering the woman into the boiler room of the city jail in October 2013 and ordering her to provide oral sex before forcing himself upon her. Hayden allegedly assaulted the woman even though her boyfriend had posted her bond, telling her, “You’re the type of girl that can get me in trouble” as he released her from her cell. According to the lawsuit, DNA analysis confirmed that pubic hair the woman obtained during the attack belonged to Hayden.

“Law enforcement Officers of the City of Ferguson have been involved in many other acts of violence including the shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9, 2014,” the suit states. “On information and belief discovery will produce other acts of violence, all contributing to a pattern and practice of allowing violence and sexual assault on members of the public. The numerous acts of violence against the citizenry by law enforcement of the City of Ferguson constitute a pattern.”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Hayden was charged on Nov. 5 with two counts of having sexual contact with a prisoner, one count of permitting escape and one count of acceding to corruption by a public servant.


The attack allegedly took place after the woman, identified in the suit as “J.W.,” was arrested by another officer for having an expired license plate and accused of providing a fake name. The lawsuit states that the woman was wearing nursing smocks from her job when Hayden told her, “You smell good” and, “This will teach you a lesson” while booking her into jail.

At one point during her incarceration, J.W. reportedly suffered pain and “discharges.” Hayden contacted EMTs, who left it up to him whether to release her to them for medical care.

“Hayden did not indicate a decision in J.W.’s presence,” the suit states. “Hayden and the EMT’s left the room. J.W. never saw the EMT’s again.”

‘He’s blind, dumb*ss’: Cops ditch disabled man in vacant lot to protest videotaping of pot bust Trav

‘He’s blind, dumb*ss’: Cops ditch disabled man in vacant lot to protest videotaping of pot bust

A visually impaired Florida man said police took him to an unfamiliar area and left him there in retaliation after his stepfather recorded cell phone video of a pot bust.

Four plainclothes officers from the Miami-Dade Police department pulled into a dead end street the evening of Aug. 27 and arrested three men they believed had been smoking marijuana, reported WFOR-TV.

The arrest report shows officers found a marijuana cigarette on the ground they approached the men.

Officers arrested all three of them as a fourth man recorded the incident on his cell phone.

They released two of the men after they signed tickets promising to appear in court, but the third man – Tannie “T-Man” Burke – was handcuffed and led to the back of an unmarked car, where he had trouble finding the door.

“He’s blind, dumb*ass,” says the man videotaping the arrest. “If you don’t tell him he’s walking to the car, how the hell is he going to know?”

The 21-year-old Burke has been legally blind since birth, the station reported, with no vision at all in his right eye and just a general sense of shapes and lights in his left eye.

He said he’s comfortable getting around his block in the daytime but does not venture far at night.

Burke said officers drove him around the neighborhood for about 20 minutes before dropping him off after dark in a vacant lot in South Dade – about a mile from his home.

Burke told the station that police complained throughout the drive about his stepfather.

“They said, ‘Your stepfather got a lot of mouth — you know we don’t like that,’” he said.

He said he told officers he was blind, but they didn’t seem to care and dropped him off in an area without streetlights or houses after making him sign an arrest form he couldn’t read.

Police had taken his cell phone, so Burke said he started walking home with one foot in the road and the other on the weed-choked curb strip to keep him from straying into traffic.

Eventually, he found a street that was lit and a stranger agreed to help him get home.

“Forty-five minutes to an hour later he comes walking through the door all sweaty up,” said his stepfather, Marvin Armstrong. “I was like, ‘How’d you get out?’”

Burke and his family filed a complaint with the police department, which handed the case over to its internal affairs unit.

Burke told the station he’s never been convicted of a crime, but he has been arrested twice and detained at least a dozen other times.

“I feel they stop me because they see a black man walking down the street,” he said. “I don’t know what to say about it. I just feel bad about it, that’s it.”
