Sergio-Alvarez

West Sacramento Police say former officer Sergio Alvarez was using his authority to assault and rape at least six women while on duty. Some of the incidents reportedly occurred inside a patrol car.

Alvarez was put on administrative leave in September when a woman came forward with allegations of misconduct. An investigation revealed at least six alleged victims, ranging in age from 20 to 47, and Alvarez was fired and arrested. He is reportedly married with three young children.

“I’m just appalled and sickened that someone who was put in a position of trust would violate that trust in such an egregious manner,” said West Sacramento Police Chief Dan Drummond during a press conference. “The whole department is appalled.”

CHP Thug Beating WomanAn unidentified California Highway Patrol officer is under investigation after getting caught on video beating a woman about the head a dozen times with no apparent indication that he was in danger.

KNBC-TV reported on Thursday that the incident was filmed Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles by motorist David Díaz as he was making his way onto Interestate 10.

Díaz’s 90-second clip begins with the officer catching up to the woman on foot. She appears to walk away from him, before the officer takes her to the ground. After a brief struggle, the officer begins pummeling her with punches to the head. The woman can be seen covering up and not fighting back.

“He basically got on top of her, and it’s basically a UFC ground-and-pound move,” Díaz told KTLA-TV. “It’s basically full force, punching her in the head.”

After the flurry, a second man enters the frame and helps the officer restrain the woman. KNBC reported that the other man was a plainclothes officer at the scene.

CA Police Murder Kelly Thomas

The acquittal of two Fullerton, California police officers in the beating death of Kelly Thomas, a homeless man who was pummeled into a coma as he begged for his life, underscores the fact that cops now have a license to murder.

Thomas, a mentally disabled homeless man, was beaten, tasered, suffocated and pistol whipped as he lay on a street corner being sat on by no less than six police officers during an incident in July 2011.

In what is undoubtedly one of if not the most disturbing police brutality videos ever, Thomas can be heard pleading for his father, moaning, “Daddy, daddy, they are killing me,” as officers prolong the assault.

Two CA Police Mugshots

Gun pointed at your head in CA
After a gang member shot and injured several law enforcement officials before going into hiding in a Sacramento suburb on Friday, police responded by setting up a checkpoint and aiming guns at innocent people’s heads, an AP photo shows.

The photo, (credited to AP Photo/The Sacramento Bee, Randall Benton) is captioned, “A California Highway Patrol officer and another emergency responder stop a vehicle at a checkpoint near the neighborhood where a federal immigration officer was shot and three local police officers were wounded during a violent confrontation with a suspect in the Sacramento suburb of Roseville on Friday, Oct. 25, 2013.”

After an hours-long standoff, the suspect, 32-year-old gang member Samuel Nathan Duran, eventually surrendered after leaving a nearby house in which he had been holed up.

The felon responsible for the shootings was a wanted parolee and was already known to police having been seen riding a bike earlier in the day. His description would have been well circulated and known intimately by those tasked with hunting him down.
