No Jail For Oklahoma Cop Who Lied About Beating Motorist posted 08/28/2014, 12:01 PM (TheNewspaper)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Miami, Oklahoma police officer Teresa Lashmet will not spend no time in jail after admitting that she committed perjury to cover up the brutal beating of a motorist that was caught on a dashcam video. Ottawa County Judge Bill Culver on Tuesday imposed a sentence of unsupervised probation for three years, deferred, and a $300 fine after she entered a plea of no contest to a charge of "outraging public decency."

In 2012, Lashmet was hailed as Miami's first female police officer, and she had high hopes of making detective. That hope died after she participated in the brutal beating of Jerry Dean Payne Jr. on May 14, 2013. She claimed that Payne was speeding and driving erratically. The officers signaled Payne's 2004 Ford F-150 pickup truck to pull over. He stopped in the parking lot of the Stables Casino.

"Stop, stop the car right now," Oklahoma Highway Patrol Officer Kenny McKee yelled as Payne's truck came to a rest in a parking spot.

Payne immediately opened the door to his truck and stuck both of his hands out the door so that they were clearly visible in the patrol car's headlights. Officer Lashmet approached with her gun drawn. She then helped McKee yank Payne out of the truck and face first onto the pavement. A third officer, Jeremy Myers, ran up to Payne and kicked him in the face while he was subdued.

Battered and bruised, with broken teeth, Payne was taken to jail accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and obstructing an officer. In her arrest report, Lashmet provided a version of events directly contradicted by the video evidence.

"The driver immediately got out of his truck," she wrote. "Due to Payne refusing to exit his truck, McKee then pulled Payne from the truck and we placed him on the ground using a straight arm bar technique... Payne received a scratch on his left cheek and a bump above his left eye when we placed him on the ground."

All Eric McDonough wanted was for Homestead Police officer Alejandro Murguido to obey the same traffic laws he enforced in their neighborhood.

Instead, the 36-year-old scientist ended up in jail on charges of aggravated stalking and threatening a public servant because he confronted Murguido with his cellphone’s voice recorder outside the cop’s home two years ago. Since then, McDonough says Homestead Police Department brass have refused to investigate Murguido for falsely accusin

On June 17, 2013, the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) further eroded one of the most potent protections Americans had against unfettered authority: the right to remain silent. In Salinas v.
