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.

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.
