It's just getting ridiculous. There has to be national standards created for policing. That's all there is to it.

Police pressured him to confess to a murder that never happened. Now, Fontana will pay him $900,000​

The city of Fontana has agreed to pay nearly $900,000 to settle a federal lawsuit filed by a man who said police pressured him to falsely confess to a murder that never happened.

During a 17-hour interrogation in August 2018, Fontana Police Department officers questioned Thomas Perez Jr. about the disappearance of his father, whom Perez had reported missing. Officers alleged Perez had murdered his father and, when Perez denied the accusation, officers tried to convince him that he had forgotten the crime, according to a federal lawsuit, court records and video of the interrogation.

Throughout their lengthy questioning of Perez, officers used a variety of tactics aimed at goading him into confessing. They brought his dog into the interrogation room, told him the dog had walked through blood and would be sent away to be euthanized. They drove Perez to a dirt lot and asked him to walk around in search of his dad’s body. They told him that his father’s body was in a morgue.

“You murdered your dad,” one of the officers said, according to video of the interrogation. “Daddy’s dead because of you.”

At the 16-hour mark, Perez told police that he had gotten into an altercation with his father and had stabbed him.

But a major problem with that confession soon emerged: Perez’s father was alive and safe.

I've watched the video 3 times. What the Fontana PD officers did to that man was way over the top wrong.
 
There's always more to the story. Maybe the kid stabbed his father and thought he was dead. Anyway there is no need to smear the legacy of the 59 (so far) Officers who died in the line of duty this year and the 378 Officers who were shot in the line of duty in 2023, over an incident in Fontana, Ca.

So Perez was too stupid to ask for a lawyer.
 
When small town cops feel empowered to harass and arrest golf pros on their way to tee off in a PGA event then yes, we have a problem.
 
I good start would be to stop letting police agencies investigate their own officers.

right. We’ll let those prosecuting Trump with bogus crime charges using stacked Marxist juries & corrupt insane Judges setup Police review. Maybe use DC Courts who are sending J6 tresspassers up for years (even for a text message), or use the MINN Leftist who railroaded Chauvin to appease filthy BLM communists you sick POS. Get off the boards you big dumb OX. How bout an OJ jury? All while street vermin with 48 priors roam free pushing people into subway trains…Leftist common sense 101.
 
Wack jobs need to stop committing crimes and then resisting
Yeah, innocent people need to stop resisting when they are being framed for a murder which didn't happen.

How dare they!

That’s the facts, that the cops are too rough is your feeling
The facts and you are world's apart. You didn't even read the article.

You just wander around, listening to the voices in your head, and get pissed when no one else can hear them.
