A police officer in the suburban Dallas community of Richardson, Texas, shot and killed Emily Krumrei, 32, a woman with outstanding drug arrest warrants as she fled from an attempted traffic stop Monday morning.
According to the Dallas Morning News, citing Richardson police spokesperson Sgt. Kevin Perlich, an officer “was attempting to get a violator to pull over in a parking lot” for reasons that are yet unclear, but Krumrei fled in her Lexus. Shortly thereafter, an officer in a squad car saw her and attempted to stop her, but she refused to pull over.
Krumrei turned onto the southbound frontage road to the North Central Expressway. There, Perlich said, “a third officer near the frontage road was working a traffic accident. He stepped out into the road and tried to get her to stop.” But instead, Perlich said, Krumrei accelerated and clipped the officer. “The officer, in fear for his life, fired upon the vehicle,” Perlich said.
The Dallas NBC affiliate had a slightly, but significantly, different chronology of the shooting. According to NBC, the officer “fired at least one shot at the woman before being struck by the car.”
I live about 5 minutes from where this happened.
Three Florida police officers in Collier county beat man who wasn’t resisting. You can hear his screams for pain and him saying he’s not resisting.
Notice they keep yelling “give me your hands”, even though he was compliant. It seems unlikely that he was refusing to give them his hands.
They know that if they dog pile you, they can beat the shit out of you while yelling at you to do something they’re physically forcing you not to do so they can continue to beat the shit out of you, claiming that you were resisting.
Yelling out “give me your hands” while three cops pin you down and prevent you from moving, is just stage performance for the camera.
The 22-year veteran of the force pleaded guilty to two counts of false pretenses and two counts of neglect of duty for a time card scandal. Over the past six years the former sergeant and patrol commander of the Williston barracks added hundreds of overtime hours to his time card — hours he never worked. To cover the falsified time sheets, he wrote nearly a thousand fake traffic tickets and made up police calls he claimed he responded to.
DALLAS - News 8 (WFAA) has obtained exclusive video that appears to show a Dallas Police officer may have lied about being assaulted by a driver.
Officer Eric Watts said he spotted a teenager drag racing last April.
So, he followed the driver, without his lights and sirens, going more than 60 miles per hour.
At one point he drove down the wrong side of the road to catch up with the driver and then activated his emergency equipment.
He told supervisors the driver, “smiled and burned off.”
The dash camera video showed officer Watts got out of his car, draw his weapon and attempt to stop the driver.
That is when he said in a police report that the driver, “… drove over my right foot, causing pain and struck me in the midsection along my gun belt with his driver’s side mirror.”
Later on in the tape you hear him joke about it with other officers. “Well he got my foot (chuckles).”
The suspect eventually stopped on his own. Watts arrested him for aggravated assault of a police officer and evading arrest.
When supervisors looked at the tape, it clearly showed Officer Watt’s was not hit because the car appeared to be too far away to have touched the officer.
Internal affairs investigators said Watts lied and he could be fired because of it.
A grand jury is also looking at charges of official oppression.
The suspect was charged with evading arrest, but the aggravated assault charge was dropped.
