L.A. County sheriff’s deputy under investigation after sex act is caught on hot mic

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a deputy for allegedly engaging in a sex act during a break and broadcasting the tryst over her radio, officials said Thursday

A short audio recording first made public by TMZ captured part of the alleged encounter. In it, a woman laughs and says, “You’re going to rip my underwear!” A man replies and a beep common on police radios sounds.

A source familiar with the investigation, who requested anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, said the woman’s voice belongs to a rookie deputy assigned to the downtown jail complex that includes the Men’s Central Jail and that she rendezvoused with her paramour in a parking structure during a break period.

Investigators are looking into whether the man is also a Sheriff’s Department employee.

Sex on the job is a serious, though not entirely uncommon, offense for law enforcement agencies, and the incident presents newly elected Sheriff Robert Luna with an early and unwelcome chance to see the department’s discipline system at work. If investigators find the deputy violated the agency’s rules for conduct, she could be suspended or fired.

“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is aware of a potential incident involving personnel possibly involved in inappropriate behavior,” the agency said in a statement. “The Department is inquiring and investigating further. The department does not tolerate inappropriate behavior and has an expectation that each department member will conduct themselves in a professional manner consistent with our values.”

The unnamed deputy is not the first in the sheriff’s department to be caught in the act by a hot mic.

Earlier in the pandemic, a male deputy inside a closed Universal Studios theme park transmitted the soundtrack of an amorous recording with a woman. The couple were reportedly near the set of the Bates Motel from the film “Psycho,” according to TMZ. As the radio captured moaning and panting sounds, a dispatcher tried to interrupt the pair to inform the deputy his radio was on.

“95 Ocean, you have an open mic, take care of the mic,” the dispatcher snapped in an angry tone when the sounds of the frolicking grew louder before suddenly cutting off. The deputy was relieved of duty, and the department moved to fire him in 2021 following an internal investigation, according to law enforcement sources. It is not known whether the deputy ultimately lost his job.

In 2018, Jorge Villegas, an assistant chief in the Los Angeles Police Department and one of Chief Michel Moore’s closest advisors, retired suddenly after a department surveillance operation caught him engaging in conduct that sources said may have violated the department’s policy against intimate relationships with lower-ranking officers.

Villegas left a bar with the woman and got into a car with her, according to several sources. The undercover officers then witnessed the pair engaging in what appeared to be a sexual activity, the sources said. The officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

Man arrested for trying to cut through police station door with chainsaw

A man has been arrested after a standoff with police lasting hours which started after the suspect tried to enter a Cohasset, Massachusetts, police station using a chainsaw.

The man tried to cut his way into the station southeast of Boston, before fleeing the area and shutting himself in his home where he held his two young children close to a window as he law enforcement tried to communicate with him.

Police eventually entered the residence and detained the man.

The arraignment of Brien Buckley, 35, is set to take place in Quincy District Court on Monday.

He faces a litany of charges, including as assault by means of a dangerous weapon with a chainsaw, damage to property, child endangerment, resisting arrest, driving to endanger, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and wanton destruction of a tree, according to Boston 25 News.

Cohasset Police Chief William Quigley said that officers broke into the home and used a stun gun to remove Mr Buckley from his son and daughter, who are both under the age of five.

The chief added that Mr Buckley is known to the local police and that he tried to get into the police station lobby by cutting through a security door after arriving by driving his truck onto the station lawn.

A desk attendant called on officers for aid after barricading herself. Mr Buckely is then reported to have fled back to his home.

The chief said that Mr Buckley “went in and basically terrorized the civilian desk attendant who was behind the security door and security glass, but he did damage to the lobby with the chainsaw and then fled the police station”.

Mr Buckley was followed home by police, where a long standoff took place. The chief said they spoke to him for more than two hours but were unable to wait longer.

“We hadn’t seen or heard from the kids in over two hours … and at that point, the decision was made that we have to go in,” Chief Quigley said, according to Boston 25 News. “We waited for an opportunity where he was far enough from the kids where we could enter the home and take him into custody.”

Investigators said that Mr Buckley held his children near the window at one point during the standoff.

Chief Quigley told the local TV station that Mr Buckley had called the police department earlier that same day, asking if officers could help babysit his kids.

When he was rejected, he came to the department several hours later with the chainsaw, the chief said.

Cohasset Police told residents in the area surrounding the home to shelter in place at around 3.40pm while they attempted to negotiate with the suspect.

Police have said that the children are safe and have been placed with family members.

Paul Brady, a neighbour, told Boston 25 News that he was “extremely concerned” for the safety of the children.

“I’ve seen them running around the neighbourhood and playing nice, beautiful little children,” he said. “It’s a quiet neighbourhood and things like this just don’t happen. It is a really odd set of circumstances right now.”

Mr Buckley was taken to a hospital to have his mental health evaluated before he was taken to police headquarters.

The investigation is ongoing.

Man with WWI explosive lodged in his rectum sparks bomb scare, hospital evacuation

The case left doctors shell-shocked.

A French hospital was partially evacuated Saturday after a senior citizen arrived with a World War I artillery shell lodged in his rectum.

The 88-year-old patient visited Hospital Sainte Musse in Toulon to have the antique explosive removed — but instead sparked a “bomb scare,” French publication Var-Matin reported.

“An emergency occurred from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Saturday evening that required the intervention of bomb disposal personnel, the evacuation of adult and pediatric emergencies as well as the diversion of incoming emergencies,” a hospital spokesperson stated.

“We had to manage the risk in a reactive framework,” the rep added. “When in doubt, we took all the precautions.”

Bomb disposal experts at the scene determined there was little possibility the shell would explode inside the man.

“They reassured us by telling us that it was a collector’s item from the First World War, used by the French military,” the hospital stated.

Stunned doctors subsequently began the process of trying to remove the object — which measured almost 8 inches long and more than 2 inches wide — from the man’s rectum.

It’s believed the pervy patient inserted the item up his anus for sexual pleasure.

“An apple, a mango, or even a can of shaving foam, we are used to finding unusual objects inserted where they shouldn’t be,” one doctor declared. “But a shell? Never!”

Medics were forced to take the elderly man into surgery, cutting open his abdomen in order to remove the relic.

According to the hospital, he is now in “good health” and is expected to make a full recovery from the surgery.

Portland school fears ‘evergreens’ mascot connotes lynching

It’s an older article, but I don’t think we talked about it.

An effort to give a Portland high school a new mascot has been paused due to concerns that the leading candidate connotes lynching.

A committee of students, staff, and community members elected to replace Ida B. Wells-Barnett High School’s Trojan with an evergreen tree, but when the matter came before the school board, Director Michelle DePass suggested a correlation between the evergreen and a racial history of lynching.

“I’m wondering if there was any concern with the imagery there, in using a tree … as our mascot?” DePass asked the renaming and mascot committee during a March 30 meeting, according to the Portland Tribune. “I think everyone comes with blind spots, and I think that might’ve been a really big blind spot.”

Ida B. Wells-Barnett, an early leader in the civil rights movement who became the namesake of the formerly named Woodrow Wilson High School earlier this year, was a co-founder of the NAACP who wrote and advocated against lynching.

In February, a mascot survey was sent to students and staff, who submitted 420 different nominations. An evergreen tree became the front-runner.

“Evergreens are characterized by the life-giving force of their foliage, the strength of their massive trunk, and the depth of their roots — in an individual tree and as a forest of trees,” Ellen Whatmore, a teacher and mascot committee member at the high school, said while reading from a resolution. “They provide shelter and sustenance. They have histories that preclude us and will continue in perpetuity after we are no more.”

One committee member said the group discussed how the evergreen could be connected with lynching but still found it to be a positive image.

“We did talk about it, but we were looking at the symbolism more as a tree of life than a tree of death,” Martin Osborne, a committee member who is black, told the school board. “You could certainly take it either way, depending upon your position.”

Osborne noted that lynching trees “typically are not evergreens,” and he added that the idea of using evergreens as mascots “had nothing to do with the horrible history of lynching in the United States.”

School Principal Filip Hristic said Wells-Barnett’s family supported the district’s move to invoke Ida B. Wells-Barnett’s legacy but was reportedly sympathetic to DePass’s concerns.

“We take this seriously, and I definitely want to follow that commitment to protect, preserve, and promote the legacy of Ida B. Wells,” Hristic said, noting that the committee hadn’t spoken with Wells-Barnett’s family about the mascot.

DePass encouraged the renaming committee to speak with the late civil rights leader’s family members to get their thoughts on the mascot proposal. The school board will take up the mascot vote at its next meeting.

“Lynching is a really difficult topic to talk about, and as a sole black board member, I invite you, beg you, implore you to join me in disrupting the situations [and] practices that are racist. I can’t do this by myself,” she said.

Representatives for the high school did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.

Air Force says KC-135 broadcast inappropriate call sign

he Air Force has confirmed that a KC-135 aerial tanker flying over the Middle East on Friday broadcast an “inappropriate” call sign, Lt. Col. Michael Hertzog, a spokesman for U.S. Air Forces Central Command, told Task & Purpose on Sunday.

Hertzog did not say what this call sign was, but the KC-135 had been identified as “Titties” on Flight Radar 24, a flight tracking service.

“We have confirmed that the KC-135 Stratotanker, official call sign INMATE72, transmitted an inappropriate display name on 16 December,” Hertzog said in an email. “Commanders in the AFCENT [U.S. Air Forces Central Command] chain of command are taking appropriate action to address this behavior which is inconsistent with the high standards of professionalism and airmanship we expect and demand from our aircrew.”

On Friday, Hertzog said the Air Force was looking into how the KC-135 with the call sign “Inmate 72” had been identified as “Titties” on Flight Radar 24. Initial indications are that the aircraft belonged to the Pennsylvania Air National Guard’s 171st Air Refueling Wing, which is currently deployed to the U.S. Central Command’s theater of operations, though no Pennsylvania Air National Guardsmen were crew members on that particular KC-135, said Senior Master Sgt. Shawn Monk a spokesman with the 171st Air Refueling Wing.

“AFCENT is aware that a tanker operating in the CENTCOM AOR [Central Command Area of Operations] whose actual call-sign is ‘Inmate 72’ is currently being tracked on Flight Radar 24 as call-sign ‘Titties,’” Hertzog told Task & Purpose on Friday. “The cause is unknown at present but AFCENT and 379 AEW [379th Air Expeditionary Wing] are investigating.”

After this story was first published, Flightradar24 spokesman Ian Petchenik told Task & Purpose that the call sign “Titties” was broadcast from the aircraft.

“We displayed it on the service as it came out of the aircraft,” Petchenik said on Friday. “The aircraft at the time was seen by 94 separate receivers in the area. This isn’t a question other than: That was plugged into the flight computer and that is what came out as the call sign.”

“The long and the short of it is that not only did they broadcast the ‘Titties’ call sign; they started with the ‘Boobie’ call sign and then quickly switched to the ‘Titties’ call sign, judging by the raw data that we pulled,” Petchenik added.

As of Friday afternoon, FlightRadar24 was no longer displaying any information about the KC-135.

News of a U.S. military plane appearing to have an unconventional call sign comes little more than a month after Air Force officials denied that another KC-135 aerial tanker had flown in a penis-shaped pattern near a Russian base in Syria.

“The KC-135 Stratotanker (RAKE71) operating in the Eastern Mediterranean adjusted between multiple different flight tracks during the course of the mission,” Capt. Ryan Goss, a spokesman for U.S. Air Forces in Europe, said at the time. “While these adjustments and movements appear to create a vulgar outline, there was no intent by the pilots or the unit to do so. As we continue to look into this, USAFE-AFAFRICA, AMC [Air Mobility Command] and the USAF will continue to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and airmanship.”

Some arresting behavior going on here. Wonder if the handcuffs came into “play”?

Is chainsaw on the list of things to not bring to a potential gunfight?

“Hot round in the tube!”

’bout the only thing ever hung on an evergreen tree has been Christmas Decorations.

Sooo…now we know Boomer’s Call Sign.

Such a worthy group. The guy trying to break into the police station may be the smartest though.

He got somebody to watch his kids.

Problem?
The green tree on the logo of Stanford University is a sequoia, which is a strong and beautiful plant, and also a symbol of Palo Alto, a city in California, where the university is located. So on this badge, the green sequoia tree is the celebration of the University’s heritage and roots.

NHSparky

Portland. Oregon or Maine? Both are equally likely.

David

Hadn’t seen the kids for 2 hours, so when he wasn’t near the kids they went in. How did they know?

“Precluded our history”… sigh.

Racist TREES!

Titties… they figured the Navy already had dibs on “penis”

UpNorth

If the L.A. county deputy is a probie, no problem, just let her go. They don’t even have to give a reason, as long as she’s still on probation.
Trees are racist now? The woke are ridiculous, they just don’t know it.

A pinetree connotes lynching? Their limbs are too short and close together– they suck for hanging anything but Christmas ornaments!

So, their sports teams are known as “The Mighty Ents”?

rgr769

That was my first thought. Further proof most Prog educators are brain dead.

Very odd that someone who has never experienced a lynching in their life time,cloud be terrified by pine trees. This is taught retardation and it needs to stop. Most lynchings of blacks were done by blacks to clean the perverts and criminals out of their communities. How many did the democrat founded and run KKK actually lynch? Let the uproar begin…

tom reynolds

At a time when the service is concentrating on putting men with titties in charge I don’t understand what the problem was. Did some woman who cut her titties off,to be a man,get offended?

InbredRedneck

So… if’n “Boobies” and “Titties” are a no-go I guess the tanker couldn’t say” come to Momma” either?
