MARANA, Ariz - Marana police released body cam footage of an officer-involved shooting. It happened on March 31 near Silverbell Road and Continental Reserve Loop.
The suspect Juan Padilla was shot and killed.
The video is graphic and disturbing. In the video, Officer Steven Copp arrived at the house and found the homeowner, a man lying in the front yard. He told the officer two people were inside, screaming could be heard.
According to police reports, the female called 911 when she woke up and saw a man stabbing the homeowner.
When Marana Police Department arrived that man began stabbing the female who was screaming for help.
Officer Copp asked the suspect 11 times to drop the knife. At one point he told Padilla to drop the knife or he was going to kill him. Padilla responded “Go ahead and shoot me,” he moved towards the officer with a knife in his hand.
The officer fired three shots and killed Padilla.
The Pima County Attorney’s office sent a letter last Tuesday to the Marana Police Department stating “Officer Copp was justified in his use of deadly physical force against Mr. Padilla.”
“You have to make a decision ‘am I going to let this go any further?’ “ said Marana Police Chief Terry Rozema. He added the suspect had already stabbed the victim seven times. “‘Was he going to stab her an eighth time? Or was the officer going to let the suspect stab him.”
The autopsy report showed Padilla had alcohol and fentanyl in his system.
Neither victim knew Padilla, police said they had all met the night before downtown.
Chief Rozema believes if Officer Copp had not taken the action he did, there could have been two homicides. So he not only saved the victims lives but his own as well.
This is the moment a furious passenger was bundled off a plane by three policemen after he allegedly locked himself in the loos during landing.
Passengers said the man was "quiet all the flight" from Faro, Portugal to Gatwick, until the seatbelt signs came on, and he demanded to go to the toilet. He apparently forced his way to the back of the plane and into the cubicle despite protests from staff, where he locked himself in for ten minutes.
By the time Easyjet staff got him out, the captain was forced to abort the landing, and then spent an extra 40 minutes in the air and on the runway, onlookers said.
On August 8, 2018 at approximately 5:11 p.m., San Diego Police received a 911 call reporting an assault with a machete.
Witnesses reported seeing Mr. Vaughn Denham attack another male in the head and torso with a machete.
Officer Corey Pitts responded to the call and advised dispatch he was making contact with a person matching the description of the suspect.
As Pitts was getting out of his vehicle, Denham ran up to the car and swung a four-foot long metal chain striking Pitts' police car.
Pitts got out of the car and ordered Denham to drop the chain. Denham refused and began walking towards Pitts while swinging the chain.
Pitts deployed his Taser, which was ineffective in stopping Denham. Pitts continued to retreat from Denham for a block and a half to keep from being struck with the chain.
As Denham continued to close the distance between he and Pitts, Pitts fired two rounds from his duty weapon striking Denham. Denham was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police Break Down Door At Wrong House And Proceed To Wrongfully Arrest Family Members
DENVER (AP) — A white Colorado police officer who pulled out his gun during a confrontation with a black man picking up trash around his dormitory resigned this week under an agreement that lets him collect $69,000 in salary despite violating department policies.
Police body camera footage released Thursday provided a full video account of the tense encounter, which had gained national attention based on video shot by someone inside a student dormitory at Naropa University, a liberal arts school associated with Buddhism in the city of Boulder.
City officials said the investigation could not prove that the officer, John Smyly, acted because of Zayd Atkinson’s race. Investigators found Smyly violated two department policies: police authority and public trust and conduct, the city attorney said.
“Boulder is essentially saying we’re going to pay this officer and let him resign for threatening Zayd’s life, for racially profiling Zayd,” said Atkinson’s attorney, Siddhartha Rathod. “If you or I were to do this, we would be criminally charged. We would immediately lose our jobs.
” A phone number for Smyly could not be located Thursday. He did not mention the incident in his resignation letter.

Red Bluff police have released bodycam footage of a fatal shooting of a man that occurred in the early morning of 4/14/2019.
The man was identified as Henry Lane, 42 of Red Bluff, California. A Red Bluff police officer shot and killed Lane after he allegedly threatened to hit him and other officers with a large stick.
Lane was shot early on Antelope Boulevard just east of Rio Street, according to a news release from the Red Bluff Police Department.
A statement from Red Bluff police Chief Kyle Sanders said officers contacted Lane shortly after midnight Sunday. Officers demanded Lane drop the large stick he was carrying, but he refused and walked away from officers, Sanders said.
Officers used "less-than-lethal tools," including a stun gun and a bean bag round fired from a gun, to get Lane man to comply, Sanders said. "These attempts proved ineffective and the male came toward officers with the large stick raised in preparation to strike at the officers. One officer then fired one round from his service pistol, striking the male in his upper body," Sanders said.
After the shooting, officers began life-saving measures on Lane until paramedics arrived and took him to St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff, where he was declared dead. Red Bluff Cpl. Stephen Harper fired the shot that killed the suspect, Sanders said.
Harper is a 15-year police veteran who has been with the Red Bluff Police Department for 3½ years, Sanders said. Harper was placed on administrative leave.
None of the officers involved in the incident were injured, the chief said.
Red Bluff police will conduct an internal investigation into the shooting, and the Tehama County District Attorney's Office will also conduct an independent investigation, Sanders said.
The District Attorney's office has completed its review of a violent incident last year in which two San Diego police officers were shot, officers were forced to scramble for cover and return fire, and the suspect eventually took his own life. On June 23, 2018, San Diego Police officers were called to a condominium unit in the College area to investigate a violent disturbance.
Officers smelled smoke coming from the condo and called firefighters to assess the situation. Police knocked on the door for more than 20 minutes but got no response. To ensure there was no fire danger, fire personnel forced entry into the home. Joe Darwish, 28, immediately opened fire on police and fire officials with a large caliber weapon, striking one police officer in the back. Two officers returned fire while backing away from the residence, providing cover for the wounded officer.
The officer who had been shot fell onto his back and was initially unable to move. After several seconds, he managed to roll onto his stomach and was able to crawl down the hallway in an attempt to get out of the line of fire. During the ensuing gun battle, a second police officer was shot by Darwish.
Darwish fired at least twenty-two shots at police. Eventually, the shooting stopped and Darwish was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. He had also been struck in the arm and face from one of the officers' shotgun fire. The San Diego Medical Examiner ruled Darwish's death a suicide.
"This harrowing incident shows just how quickly a routine call for service can turn deadly for police officers who suddenly found themselves in the line of fire, trying to protect their wounded fellow officers and keep the shooter from endangering members of the public," said District Attorney Summer Stephan. "It's a tribute to these officers' bravery and quick response that the gunman didn't injure more people or kill the officers and firefighters involved." Darwish was wearing a bullet-proof vest and was armed with a homemade assault weapon and a homemade 9 mm semi-automatic pistol.
Neither weapon had a serial number and the guns were not registered. After a thorough review, the District Attorney's Office determined officers were justified in using deadly force to defend against Darwish's attempts to kill them and others. Both officers who were shot survived their injuries.

During the morning hours of Friday, May 3, 2019, the Oxnard Police Department’s dispatch center received multiple calls from a female reporting a woman with a knife in the area of 1835 San Gorgonio, and then behind the Carl’s Jr. on the 400 block of North Rose Avenue. The female was described as being 18 years in age, wearing a red shirt and blue shorts. During the first call to the dispatch center, it was reported that she “seems disturbed” and that she was walking around and waving a knife. The caller also indicated that the female was possibly armed with a gun. The caller recontacted dispatch three (3) additional times, and during these calls stated that the female was “getting increasingly worse” and that she was screaming and threatening people.
Oxnard Police Officer Timothy Roberts arrived on scene first, and made verbal contact with a female in the dirt field behind the business. The female approached, and then brandished a large kitchen knife (pictured below) at the officer. The officer drew his handgun and made several verbal requests for her to drop the weapon. The female ignored and expressly refused the officer’s requests, and began to advance on him. The officer retreated in an attempt to create space between them. The officer continued to give the female verbal commands to drop the weapon as he retreated backwards through the parking lot. As the second officer arrived on scene and was retrieving a “beanbag” shotgun, the female ran directly towards Officer Roberts with the knife in her hand. Officer Roberts fired his weapon, and the female was struck by gunfire. Officers promptly rendered first aid to her until medical personnel arrived on scene.
The female’s face has been blurred because of her age. Audio that identifies her by name has also been redacted. During the incident, the female brandished a large kitchen knife. During the investigation, detectives determined that the multiple calls made into the Oxnard Police Department’s dispatch center came from the phone that was in the female’s possession. Detectives have also discovered evidence that supports the position that the female deliberately intended to be shot by an officer. At the time of this news release the female is in an area hospital in “critical but stable” condition. A criminal investigation is continuing. Officer Roberts has been employed by the Oxnard Police Department since 2015, and is currently assigned to the Department’s Patrol Division. At the time of this update, he is on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure for officer-involved shootings.

One Anaheim police officer has been fired and a second is facing department discipline for shooting and killing a 50-year-old man during a slow-speed pursuit through a residential neighborhood last July. The firing comes just after Orange County District Attorney’s Office Wednesday released alarming and violent dashcam and bodycam video from the July 21, 2018, shooting of Eliuth Penaloza Nava. According to the report from the DA’s office, officers Sean Staymates and Kevin Pedersen fired on Nava a staggering 76 times. “The fact that the two involved officers discharged their weapons 76 times, from a moving patrol car at Nava’s moving car, at approximately 9:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning, in a residential neighborhood where residents, including children, were home and on the streets, was alarming and irresponsible based on the totality of all the circumstances in this specific case,” Deputy District Attorney Scott Wooldridge wrote in his analysis.
While Wooldridge found that the officers acted irresponsibly, he determined there was “a lack of sufficient evidence” to bring criminal charges against the officers. Later Wednesday, Anaheim police announced that one of the officers had been fired and the second was facing discipline. On the morning of July 21, the officers were called to a home in the 500 block of W. West Street on a report from Nava’s family that he was acting erratically, appeared to be on drugs and may be armed. Officers arrived to find him sitting his car, which was parked outside his family’s home. He then drove away, prompting a slow-speed chase. During the pursuit, the officers saw him waving a gun and opened fire on him throughout the pursuit. It was later determined that Nava was in fact carrying a CO2 air pistol BB gun. An autopsy determined he sustained at least nine gunshot wounds.
