Fort Lauderdale, Florida Cop Victor Ramirez Caught on Video Assaulting Elderly Homeless Man For Wanting to Use Restroom


                    Fort Lauderdale, Florida cop Victor Ramirez assaults homeless man

By Davy V.

A disturbing video posted on YouTube this past weekend shows a Fort Lauderdale, Florida police officer assaulting an elderly homeless man, all because the man needed to pee.

The cop, Ft. Lauderdale Police officer Victor Ramirez.

The video begins with officer Ramirez putting on some blue latex gloves, as he follows the homeless man at a bus station.

Ramirez is seen grabbing the man's arm, and then he pushes the man, who falls down on the concrete pavement.

Ramirez then tells the man, "I'm telling you right now what's going to happen!"

The man is heard telling Ramirez that he just wants to pee.

"You're not going to pee," Ramirez tells the man.

"You're not supposed to pee here."

An irate Ramirez then slaps the homeless man hard on the left side of his face, then yells at the man, "I'm not fucking around with you!"

Retired White Plains, NY Cop Executes Daughters, 3 Family Dogs, Then Kills Himself


                                                           Alissa Hochman

                            Executed by her father, retired White Plains, NY cop Glen Hochman

By Davy V.

A retired White Plains, NY police officer who recently received a life saving 

award for keeping an unresponsive man alive until EMT's arrived, 

executed his two daughters, then shot and killed himself in his garage.

Glen Hochman, 52, shot his daughters Alissa, 17, and Deanna, 13, 

Saturday, inside the family's Harrison Village home, in 

Westchester County.

The retired cop also executed the family's three pet dogs.

Police were called to the home after someone called 911 when no 

one answered the door.

White Plains, NY Police Commissioner David Chong said his departnent 

Is devastated.

"The department is shocked and horrified by the news of this unfathomable 

tragedy," said Chong.

"We can only pray for the family. Officer Hochman served this department 

and the city of White Plains with honor and integrity."

A neighbor, Howard Hollander, said the young girls were always friendly and full of life.

"The girls said hi whenever they passed," said Hollander, adding, 

"I remember one was learning to drive and beeped at us as she went by."

Friends left comments on Alissa Hochman's facebook page.

One friend, Richard Esposito, perhaps summed it up best with this comment:

"RIP Alissa !!! You will be missed!! This world has gone mad!! Who does this!  

Can't believe what  I have heard. In shock"

Note: this is the second former White Plains, NY cop to die violently this year.

On January 18th, former White Plains, NY Police officer Steven Hart, a 

12- year veteran of the department, was killed in a fiery crash when 

according to officials, his car "left the roadway at a high rate of speed", 

drove into the woods, and hit a tree before exploding in flames.

Steven Hart had been fired by the White Plains Police Department in 2013, 

for using a racial slur during a police standoff where Kenneth Chamberlain, 

an African-American man was shot and killed by White Plains Police on 

November 19, 2011.

Charlie Tan Executed his Father. He's a Murderer. He's No Hero!


                                                 Charlie Tan

By Davy V.

UPDATED ON FEB. 14, 2014 8:46 P.M.

Long before I saw Charlie Tan smiling as he was led out of Pittsford, NY Town Court, in handcuffs and shackles after being arraigned for murdering his own father, I was disgusted.

But that sly smile did it for me.

It reaffirmed my disgust.

The Monroe County, NY Sheriff's Office says 19-year old Charlie Tan shot his father Jim Tan multiple times with a shotgun, including at least once in the face Monday night inside the family's Pittsford, NY home.

Jim Tan, CEO of Dynamax Imaging, died inside the home.

Immediately after the execution-style killing, Rochester's Corporate-America run, spin master mainstream news media, reported allegations of a history of domestic abuse in the home.

Those news reports quickly became an instant stamp of approval, and justification of a son murdering his father in cold blood.

Amd of course, with an overwhelming amount of people who are easily influenced by mainstream news media and believe anything they are told to believe, it didn't take long for those same folks to start donating money to a killer.

Within a couple of hours, there was an outpouring of support for Charlie Tan, including an online fundraiser which has raised more than $47,000 for Tan's defense lawyer, James Nobles.

Even New York State Assemblyman Bill Nojay, whose children went to school with Tan, publicly expressed his support for a killer.

A killer who executed his own father.

I know that domestic violence is a very real issue.

But it's not, and should not be an excuse for a 19-year old to murder his own father.

Perhaps there was a history of domestic abuse.

I don't know.

But what I do know is that Charlie Tan shot his father multiple times.

He executed him.

And Charlie Tan's smile as he left court says a lot.

So does the smirk on his face in his mugshot photo, taken shortly after killing his father.

Look closely at Charlie Tan's mugshot booking photo above.

Look at the smile.

Look at the look in his eyes.

You know what I think?

That's the look of a killer.

There's something very disturbing about that photo.

Like Charlie Tan is beaming with joy.

Perhaps Yaneek Brown of Rochester, summed it up best in a comment she left me regarding this piece.

"Sick child, an abused person doesn't smile the way he did."

My point exactly.

Charlie Tan is no hero.

He's a murderer.


Jim Tan may have been dead inside his home for as long as a day before Monroe County, NY Sheriff's deputies were called to his Pittsford, NY home.

That means that Charlie Tan may have executed his father, shooting him multiple times with a shotgun, then along with his mother, Qing Tan, left Jim Tan's body laying on the floor for up to a day, before calling 911.

What Really Happened to Pedro Sanchez? Is The Monroe County, NY Sheriff's Office Involved in a Cover-Up After Jail Inmate Dies?

                                                  Monroe County, NY Jail 
                                                    Photo by Emily Good 

By Davy V.

The Monroe County, NY Jail, located in downtown Rochester, NY is an eerie place.

If the cement walls, and metal bars could talk, they would tell of many disturbing incidents.

From brutal beatings of inmates by jail deputies, to countless suspicious 
and very questionable deaths over the years, behind the depressing 
grey cement facade, the Monroe County Jail holds many haunting secrets.

In 1998, Monroe County Sheriff's jail deputies claimed that Kevin Sylar, 
arrested by Rochester Police and charged with robbing the Good Neighbor Deli 
grocery store, suddenly pulled a gun out of his waistband and shot himself in 
the head while being booked at the jail.

There's one problem with the deputies' story however.

Sylar searched several times, including by the Rochester Police officer who arrested him.

So how then, did Kevin Sylar manage to sneak in a gun?

After being searched several times?

Did Sylar really have a gun?

Or was he murdered?

More than 15 years later, Kevin Sylar's death remains a mystery.

One of the many dark secrets within the Monroe County Jail.

And now the Monroe County Jail may have one more secret.

Or should I say coverup?

Enter Pedro Sanchez.

Sanchez, an inmate at the jail, died Monday after Monroe County Jail 
deputies claim he was assaulted by two inmates on Sunday.

But something's not right here.

For starters, Pedro's family members say they were never notified of his death 
by the jail, or the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Instead they learned of their loved one's death from Rochester news media.

Imagine your loved one is brutally beaten in the jail, with deputies everywhere 
who are supposed to protect the inmates, then your loved one dies, under the 
watch of Monroe County, NY Sheriff's jail deputies, and they don't even contact 
you to tell you that your loved one has died?

Something else which is disturbing is that Sanchez was allegedly taken to 
Rochester General Hospital after the "assault", for treatment.

After being treated, he was released and sent back to jail.

Jail deputies claim that they noticed "injuries" on Sanchez Monday, and 
that he was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he died.

What "injuries" did Monroe County Jail deputies "notice"?

New "injuries"?

What really happened to Pedro Sanchez?

The jail walls and bars know.

But they're not talking.

Rochester, NY Police Officer's Cruiser Gets Plowed In by City Plow Trucks

                        Photo by Davy V.

By Davy V.

Rochester, NY Police officers love parking anywhere.

Anywhere they want.

Anywhere they feel like it.

They're notorious for double parking, parking in fire lanes, and some will even park in handicapped parking spaces, not for any emergency, but all so that the officer doesn't have to walk too far to go into Dunkin' Donuts, to grab that manager's special donut and cup of coffee.

Others just park anywhere they want, just because they can, like Rochester Police Sgt. David Joseph does when he gets a sub at a Gates, NY Wegmans food market.

But it's not every day that one sees the Rochester Police Department's 'special parking privileges' backfire on them.

It's not every day.

Just yesterday.

You see that's exactly what happened to the Rochester, NY cop shown in the photo above, digging his police cruiser out from over 2 feet of snow, Tuesday, after a City of Rochester plow truck buried it after a snow storm.

The RPD's special parking privileges backfired on this officer.

What's interesting here is that City of Rochester plow trucks are well aware that this is a police parking zone, and they could have pulled their plows up and not block this RPD cruiser in.

Or they could have simply just gone around it.

But they didn't.

Instead they buried it in snow.


This officer parked his cruiser in a "RESERVED FOR POLICE VEHICLES" parking zone across from the Public Safety Building in downtown Rochester.

So much for convenient curbside parking with a short walk to work, huh officer?

Sacramento County, California Sheriff's Deputy Who Illegally Parked in Handicap Parking Space; "We're Allowed to Get Breaks."

By Davy V.

What do you do if you're a law enforcement officer who has just been busted on video abusing your authority by illegally parking in a handicap parking space, and a taxpayer, questions you about it?

Just do what most law enforcement officers would do.

Reply with the typical above the law, sense of entitlement swagger, and 
come up with some b.s. sarcastic remark.

That's exactly what a Sacramento County, California Sheriff's deputy did after a man video recorded her illegally parked in a handicap parking space.

The video begins with the SCSO deputy walking towards her marked police cruiser holding snacks, including a super size drink in hand, that she just picked up at a Circle K convenience store.

Then the man who's video recording her comes on.

"You always park in handicap when you're not on a call?", the man asks the deputy.

"We're allowed to get breaks," the deputy replies.

"There's a parking spot right here though ma'm," the man tells the deputy, referring to an empty parking space right next to the handicap space she's occupying.

Which by the way, just happens to be the only handicap parking space in the parking lot.

"There wasn't one when I pulled in," the deputy replies.

"She seemed to feel like she was entitled to it," the man told KTLA 5 news, going on to describe the deputy as thinking she's somehow exempt from the laws.

The same laws me and you are expected to abide by.

"I'm very disappointed, frankly it is completely inconsistent with our values," said Sacramento undersheriff James Lewis, after watching the video.

Undersheriff Lewis said that the matter has been turned over to the department's internal affairs division for an "investigation."

Lewis said that disciplinary actions can range anywheres from "documented counseling to termination."

Can you imagine if this smart, alert citizen had not done some quick thinking and video recorded this incident of yet another cop clearly thinking she's above the law?

Certainly the deputy and the undersheriff would have denied it ever even happened.

Which is, why I always say...

Please Support My Film "A Promise to My Dad"

A Promise to My Dad

'A Promise To My Dad' is a documentary film about a promise I made to my father at his wake, after my father committed suicide.

The short film explores the life of my dad, Mario Vara  as he leaves Cuba with my mom and older brother in 1968, in search of freedom and a better life for our family.

After moving the family to Rochester, NY, my father realizes that despite the promises of freedom and liberty that a life in America can bring, the harsh reality is that there are many injustices as well.

In fact, my dad would soon face very similar 'police state' tactics, as the ones he escaped his homeland for in the first place.

"A Promise to My Dad" highlights an incident in the 1980's, when Rochester Police officers Mark Mariano and Randall Benjamin kicked down the family's door, illegally entering our home, terrorizing me and my family at gunpoint.

As a result of that incident, my dad becomes outspoken against police abuse and misconduct.

Unlike many Americans who take their rights for granted, my dad took a stand to denounce law enforcement violating U.S. citizen's civil rights.

Having lived a communist dictatorship, my dad knew all too well what it was like to live in a totalitarian police state, where simply expressing one's dislike for Castro and his government could land you in prison.

My dad was passionate in his denouncement of rogue cops abusing and violating citizen's civil rights in the U.S.

As a teen, I would tag  along with my dad accompanying him to community meetings, rallies, and marches where he, along with other citizens demanded accountability from those whose job is to serve and protect, as well as the elected officials whose job it is to keep them in check.

'A Promise To My Dad' features me telling my dad's story, including talking about my father's depression and how it led to him committing suicide in 1993, after the Rochester, NY Police Department targeted my father through a series of selective harassment and intimidation tactics. 

'A Promise to My Dad' follows me as I struggle to keep the promise I made to my dad, to continue his work against police misconduct and corruption, while at the same time trying to find my own identity as a young man, then as a father myself.

Throughout the film I will talk about my own struggles with depression, my father's suicide, and the effects that my work has brought to me and my family, including my children being stalked and receiving death threats.

One example of this came in August of 2014, when an ex-con who is known to work with Rochester Police as a paid confidential informant (C.I.) was captured on a store's surveillance video threatening to murder, and decapitate my 5-year old daughter.

Despite the video clearly showing the individual threatening to kill and decapitate an innocent child, Rochester Police and the Monroe County, NY District Attorney's office, including D.A. Sandra Doorley, refused to charge the individual.

Brighton, NY Police officer Mike Romach Thinks That Me Exercising My Right to Free Speech is Threatening.

By Davy V.

Last May I wrote about Brighton, NY Police officer Mike Romach saving the lives of a mother and daughter who were inside a burning home.

Rochester's lame stream news media did a 5 second report of the fire but failed to give credit where credit was due.

And that was Brighton, NY Police officers Mike Romach and Brad Steve.

So I made sure to highlight these officer's life saving actions.

The story received great response from my readers and was a refreshing, welcome change to the usual stories we see every day of rogue, dirty cops abusing their authority.

Fast forward to tonight.

I walk into a 7 eleven store where Brighton, NY Police officer Mike Romach loves to hang out at, and sure enough, there's officer Romach.

Hanging out.

Shooting the shit with the store clerk.

I walk up to officer Romach, extend my handshake to him and wish him a happy new year.

Officer Romach reluctantly meets my hand with his and gives me a very dirty look accompanied by a curled upper lip frown.

Pure disdain.

And disgust.

And here's why.

Officer Romach's best friend was fellow East Rochester, NY native and Rochester Police officer Daryl Pierson.

Officer Pierson was shot and killed on September 3, 2014.

And immediately, Rochester's lame stream news media, the same news media who just four months earlier ignored Brighton Police officer Mike Romach's heroic life saving actions with that house fire, made Pierson an instant hero.

Knowing nothing about Pierson, or his corrupt RPD tactical unit goons, Rochester's lame stream news media, was so interested in exploiting and sensationalizing a cop's death, that they basically made him into a martyr who as they said, gave his life trying to make Rochester, NY a safer city.

And I called bullshit.

In several pieces I questioned this cop being made a saint.

And just recently I exposed a very dirty secret.

That officer Pierson's commander, Rochester Police Lt. Eric Paul is banging Pierson's widow.

And I wrote about how members of the RPD were so heated when they found out that officials recommended to Lt. Eric Paul that it was in his best interest to take an early retirement.

For his own safety.

And as Brighton Police officer Mike Romach gave me that dirty look, I realized he's not too happy with me.

And it's pretty obvious why.

His feelings are hurt.

So I tried to talk to him.

Not because I care what he or any other coo thinks of me, because I don't.

But because as a man, I'm all about 'clearing the air.'

I don't do dirty looks.

Or frowns.

And I'm not Billy Idol, so I don't curl my top lip up either.

So I told officer Romach that I knew he wasn't happy with the things I had written.

And I told him that frankly, I didn't care.

Just like he, the Brighton Police department, the Rochester Police department, and Monroe County, NY District Attorney Sandra Doorley didn't care when an ex-con turned confidential informant threatened to murder and decapitate my 5-year old daughter and put her head on the roof of my car.

And I told him that.

Everything I just wrote, I told to officer Romach.

His response?

"That had nothing to do with me."


I told him that as a father himself he should be ashamed of his response.

Then officer Romach did one of the most cowardly things that cops do when they can't stand a citizen standing up to them.

"Are you threatening me?," officer Romach asked me.

No officer Romach.

I would never threaten you.

That's not me.

It's called free speech.

Officer Romach, I'm not afraid to exercise my right as a taxpayer and to express my disappointment in you and your profession sir.

And I'm not intimidated by you falsely accusing me of threatening you either.

Those well known police intimidation and scare tactics don't work on me sir.
