"KTAR in-depth, by the way, mayor geigo will be joining us a little after seven forty this morning. But here's one of the things that we need to talk to her about is is this police department situation. First off this video that we have seen over the last few days in arrests that was made in late may all caught on tape. Yeah. So that's the video from the incident surrounding a Phoenix. Police officer caught on video lake swiping a handcuffed suspect who is up against the car. Now, the family says they are suing they're suing now for ten million dollars. Former Arizona attorney General Tom horn is representing the family and he says the Phoenix police used excessive force after this call that their four year old daughter, stole a doll from a dollar store. Family now filing this notice acclaim and horn recounted with the officer. Did he told the father to spread his father, did the officers had kicked him in the right leg so hard that the father collapsed? Again, you can see that on the video. Yeah. You can definitely see that on the video, and he says, in the Nossa claim against the, the Phoenix police department that the author, sir committed battery, so you got assault and battery, so assault actually is saying you're going to hurt. Somebody battery is actually putting your hands on them or hurting them in some way, shape, or form. Andy says the Phoenix police used excessive force, he said, I'm going to put a camping you're a word. Wow. And really false arrest. Two officers arrived with the father and a police car and kept him there for an hour. They did not loosen the handcuffs for another half hour. Yeah. And civil rights violations stack up on top of this, this all began after the four year old daughter, once again, allegedly, stole a doll from the dollar store. The officers apparently did not have the whole story. They just contacted them in the, you know, outside the dollar store. Didn't talk to the dollar store manager I. Back on Wednesday. We talked to retired Phoenix. Police sergeant Darren Burge and he told us the officer definitely overreacted on the leg sweep, but also want to know what happened leading up to that point that we hadn't seen or heard about. So what did he do that made the offer upset or Qazi officer be instead of using were upset concern? Was there something happened where now the officers concerned for his safety, which makes me think that's the case. Also have a gun out so Darren Birch making the point that that officer acted improperly. I've been making the point that, yeah, he did he did. And maybe he did some other things wrong on that traffic stop but. He probably should be disciplined because it's not the way to handle this. I it's not an and the, the man was complying he had his legs spread. There was no need to kick his leg out. You're just making the situation worse than an officer doing that. Now do I think the guy should be the cops should be fired? Now I don't I don't discipline. Yeah. Do I think the families should be suing? I guess you could make the case for that, but for ten million dollars, that's an overreaction. So the cop overreacted now the families overreacting. And the only thing I will say is it is a sign of desperation that they would choose Tom horn. Disgraced former attorney general to be their attorney. That also is. Yeah. Maybe an overreaction it's five nineteen now at KTAR valley Chevy dealers, traffic.

"I'm Bob McClay. Here's our top story. National police foundation study claims that Phoenix police are involved in the most officer involved shootings in the country police chief Jerry Williams says it's because of staffing shortages and having to deal with people with mental health issues. Some of those officer involved shootings, it was a single person unit that was on scene, which then could create a dynamic where the individual may want to challenge. Williams tells the Bruce St James and Pamela Hughes show that she'd like to see mental health professionals answered nine one one calls regarding mental health incidents should police. Officers started carrying around NAR can one valley woman. Lost two children to overdoses once Phoenix police officers to have the opioid overdose. Reversal drug with them retired. Phoenix police sergeant Darren Birch says he understands her sentiment. But it may not be practiced all the police officers feel comfortable with that type of expertise. The Phoenix police. Department has distributed kitsch to only one hundred specialty officers out of a total of nearly three thousand sworn police officers at least four Americans are known to have died in the Easter Sunday bombings in three Lenka. And now you us authorities are involved in the investigation. That's according to ABC's Alec stone. The FBI is now assisting in the investigation into the Sri Lankan bombings. It's not uncommon for the FBI to send a team of agents to a foreign country. When terrorism kills American citizens at least four Americans are known daddy in the bombing attack.

"Two thousand cameras out there on the street were able to show the exchange of what our officers do. Well, what our community members do? Well, and when things don't go, well, we will address those is Phoenix police chief, Jerry Williams. The Phoenix city council overwhelmingly approved a contract with Scottsdale based Exxon enterprises, you know, them as the folks who make the taser they will acquit police with two thousand new body cameras and those will replace the three hundred old cameras at they currently have and joining us now. Yeah. Retired. Phoenix police sergeant author of twisted, but true Darren Birch on the KTAR newsmaker line there. There were forty four officer involved shootings last year with Phoenix police is there any impact that these new body cams are going to have on those kind of incidents. You know, the impact won't be. You know, prevent is going to be reflective ill show another invaluable tool to help with those investigations. But again that's gonna be coupled with witness statements, visible Evans, and the like so it'll be impactful only to extent of the investigation. There are I know there's kind of mixed feelings amongst the police community about body cams. Some officers are like this is great. You know, the Dow everybody can see I did the right thing. And I was attacked or whatever the case may be and others are like, you know, this kind of makes me a little hesitant to. Maybe do my job the way, I would do it. If I wasn't wearing one is that fair. I think it is. I think the overwhelming. Again. This is my assessment of what I hear is. I think it's more of the former I think people police officers understand. It is the reality of the job today that genie is out of the transparent bottle technologies has been here where a major department what fifth sixth largest city. So I think it's time is maybe even overdue. I think is a good thing for right time. Yeah. This environment. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. We're police are accused of you know, there was something one person in a city council meeting the last year that call them domestic terrorists called the Phoenix police department domestic terrorists, I think it's awful that they would refer to somebody like that. Now, according to the chief Williams there are multiple benefits of using body cams. Let's listen to a couple of what she's those benefits are that. She says it actually shows if you look at some of the study shows a decrease in the use of force with the officers, and they were also able to close out citizens complaints by showing the video and looking at the video optimum we're talking with retired. Phoenix police sergeant Darren Birch the author of twisted but true Darren so that's that that is good. If officers don't use as much force. But can that also be a bad thing? In other words, our officers maybe not going to respond with the force that they should to protect themselves in the community. If they're wearing a body Cam, you know, thinking about having that on their on their vest. I hope the training kicks in regardless intrigue. When I'm talking about is when you use force would not use force. All those things that go into a decision making process. Hopefully, this will not be part of that. It shouldn't be this is simply reflective tool to record what's going on. And not a as a decision maker in any regard. So hopefully, that's true. I can see the citizens challenging and empower citizens. Let me be clear, you know, criminal type those individuals who maybe what a prey on obser- in. And now they know that they're being recorded. So in that sense. I could see. Situations that may not escalate because they know they're being court. So I I like it. I don't discount anything on the chief said I thinks he's accurate with her statements. Okay. Very good. That's Darren Birch retired.

"KTAR news ninety two three FM. Phoenix police said they made an arrest in the sexual assault investigation involving a hacienda healthcare patient who gave birth to a child last month. Phoenix police arrested thirty six year old Nathan Sutherland, a licensed, practical nurse who was responsible for caring for the victim. During the time, the what they call his alleged sex assault occurred, and they announced that this morning, and you heard KTAR news. And you know, what you and I've been asking for weeks is who is this guy. Is he someone who just walked in off the street? Yeah. Is it someone that worked there? Well last week when we had retired Phoenix police sergeant Darren Birch thirty years police experience. This is what he told us could this individuals to be there nine months later. Absolutely, really. And you'll end the reason being is they think they got away with it the pregnancy their DNA testing, right? But no one knew about the pregnancy. No, one knew about the pregnancy. Maybe he thought he got away with it. Maybe he knew the woman was pregnant. Maybe he didn't know. I'm not really sure. But Darren Birch you got it. Right. You've done this for a long time with with sex, sex assault cases. You're not surprise that. This guy was actually still working there. And from what we understand talking to Tommy Thompson. Phoenix police sergeant as of yesterday was still there. My goodness Zach raising it's like hiding in plain sight is absolutely hanging plain sight. I I just want to say that the place. I rate organization did a first rate job and getting our community safe. Getting this monster off, the doubt, no doubt. Is there is there? Is there any part that says there could be other suspects? I mean, you did sex crimes for nine years. Could there be a couple of men at this place? We caught one. Would you be surprised if another person that worked there another nurse mail is implicated yet nothing was me? I would be surprised if in this particular case there was another person implicated based on the DNA because we probably would have heard about that only because of the the math of DNA right in mind in this case, it's not like a crime in progress where you have the suspect it leaves a sample and the victim discovers it costs, please. And we compare the sample on the sexual assault with the suspect. This is different were diamonds later. We have a product of that crime is Tommy Tommy Thompson said the on the investigation is ongoing. Well, if he's the guy Wisey investigation ongoing where does the investigation go from here? That's a great question. What you have is the math and the DNA for this case. But explained that your jury is difficult, and there's always, you know, the defenses, for example, in this case you have to eliminate the mothers dean. To show. The father's DNA because baby has both DNA. So there's a lot of math in this. So what you need to do. Now is investigator is go through the he may have a criminal record. But he has a thumbprint social media ex-girlfriends prior places where he's worked and creeps like this kinda give people the he'd be GB. Sometimes there's probably some female, nurses, or female, employees that may have some information they can share. And that's why Tommy did a great job putting out silent witness. They can say provide this Intel, and this this Intel will become that circumstantial evidence mountain that will assist in the nation and conviction. Garin purchase. Joining us retired Phoenix police sergeant thirty years of experience. It's interesting. You say that the guy doesn't have a record doesn't mean. He's a good God. Oh, exactly and many times these sexual predators. They have a sexual nature, which means they have this bizarre. Twisted sexual desire. They may not be a criminal and the other aspect so they have the lift sometimes these quiet lives desperation, but many times you'll see them in reports where they're urinating in public or some other activity that leads to who they are. But not in rest interesting. So they got this monster. He's off the streets. He is in jail. And we're talking to Darren Birch retired Phoenix police sergeant. So with the investigation it kind of well, we have some time. Let's get into it. Now, why didn't this guy leave? Why didn't this rapist say I know what I did. I did it for a long time. Now, there's a baby they can get my DNA. Why why didn't he leave? Why didn't he bail when they asked for DNA? Why not just skipped town then? Yeah. Get inside. This guy's head. Because I I don't understand it. That's a great question. The first thing that jumped out at me is and this goes to what you're talking about MC about recidivism goody. This man has done a crime before or after if he is prolific and these this insidious nature of his on to do this. He's may have done this before and after and he forgot about this particular victim in terms of worrying about some type of investigation. And so they may find more victims that this guy took advantage of either at this place. Somewhere else because he's been a licensed nurse since two thousand five he's been at hacienda since two thousand eleven he could have done this to some other people other victims before if that's the case. Why didn't you get out of town? Sadly, sadly, yesterday, max point he's done this before he simply got caught sadly because those are pregnant, right? He didn't use protection. And so now thank God we have him as far as to your point Gators. Why did he leave town? The best example, I can give on that is when I was doing any case. The sexual predators. Very intelligent way. More until I was why do you? Why did you do it? He says it consumes my every waking second this. Into to offend whatever that fence may be whether it's. Thank you. Yes. A sexual desire. That is bizarre. They is over it consumes them at literally consumes. So he, and I hate to say it he's in a fishing hole war this type of activity. Sally. So that's what worries me that. There could very well be victims. What will like a pedophile would go work with children exactly that this guy knew he could take advantage of as a nurse? Could. He could take advantage of somebody in a coma. Vegetative state could very well have plant plan that in terms of the perfect occupation to offend and find potential victims. Exactly retired. Sergeant Darren Birch of the Phoenix PD thirty years in law enforcement experience who has also worked in sex crimes Darren. You know, what's this is fascinating and repulsive at the same time. So forgive me, you know. I understand. Yeah. Like, I am fascinated by this. But I'm also I don't understand it. This guy. Stuck around? He didn't leave. And now his lawyer is saying there's no evidence when Phoenix PD said we matched his DNA with the child that supposedly is is here's a rapist lawyer. There's no direct evidence that Mr. Sutherland has committed these acts. I know at.

"Is DNA, Mr.. So we'll have a right in Arizona DNA expert. Well, we don't know the specifics yet. The minimum. Okay. And we're going to be talking to attorney tomorrow. Right. Yeah. So we're we're working on setting up an expert so that we can understand and you can understand a little bit more about DNA network. And is there a chance it's not him. Okay. So let's tomorrow, folks, we'll tell you when that's going to happen. But what we're learning more about Nathan's Sutherland, I'm not seeing any huge red flags are used. This would be this person would not have shown up on your radar as we can't trust this person to be around. Women children anybody like that. Because again the way he was married. It's been married twice his latest wife. I guess that'd be the way to play recent next week. She's axe. She filed filed in early December just a couple of weeks before the baby was born December twenty ninth. The baby was born. She filed for divorce in early December coincidence. Well, I mean, I don't know. I don't know. How would she know? She doesn't go to hacienda every single day. Do you think you would tell her would he? Yeah. I can't imagine. I don't think so bad. But I don't things have happened. I don't know. I just think on the surface to me. There was probably something going on in the marriage. Now, what that was little now he has two children from a previous marriage thrashes twelve and thirteen. So he has kids of his own. No criminal background. He had been working. He started at a at a lower level. He he's currently a licensed, practical nurse LPN started at a polygon assistance. The lower leg worked his way up through the healthcare chain. If you will you you could imagine you better bet that law enforcement, they're going they're going to talk to his wife, who's divorce everybody. They're gonna talk to his ex wife. Sure gonna talk to his children. They're going to try to see if there are any red flags, we're going be going through a social media. They're going to be going through all of these things because we also find out that he was also a according to some reports out there. Like a Christian rapper. You say some reports hold on you Google his name, right? Like, what does everybody do when the name comes up? Yeah. Who is this person and you found video of him. In in a church like again, use the term like a Christian rapper. He was talking about his faith, and then and then performing songs for the congregation. None of these things fit in with this guy is a serial rapist. I'll I'll give you that. No. But we had chief Jerry Williams on Arizona's morning news earlier today, and they are investigating the possibility of more victims. And they have to. Yeah. And. Coming up a little later in the show today about eleven thirty. We're going to talk to Darren Birch and former former police leagues and also worked with with sex crimes division, and some interesting things to say, we're going to talk about kind of the profile of these people that commit these types of crimes, and what we've learned from other cases..

"Mr. southern will have a right. And that was on DNA expert as well. We don't know the specifics yet the evidence is minimum his without prior criminal record. So what how can you say that? How can you say there is no evidence, and we're gonna get our attorney, and we're gonna are they going to challenge the DNA results. Are we going to get some kind of tainted DNA evidence in the trial DNA is all about the math. So the defense attorney, I think is laying the groundwork towards the defenses, you know, some type of math equation when they do these comparisons. As there's a likelihood ratio has developed based on the strength of the DNA matching the the suspect it could be one in one trillion likelihood is the suspect, right, but keep in mind. Identical twins same DNA. So there's always these defenses that defense attorneys can play an emotion. That's why the circumstantial part of this. Which was what Tommy Thompson talked about with the ongoing investigation. The hell is good old fashioned police work. They're going to have to talk with people to show not just the DNA type of individual this search warrants for like, I was talking earlier about his computer showing maybe when all this came out. He might been online looking at DNA and looking at things googling how to get out of a DNA conviction or something. I just do the I test here. Okay. So he was the one that was carrying supposedly for this woman. Right. Okay. So he's in the room with a lot at places at the at the scene of the crime. Okay. So that's one to play a lawyer on on the radio MAC to goodness gracious, the DNA matches. I mean, the kid is his I'm done. Yeah. I'm pretty sure this. How do you? How do you? How do you say? I didn't assault that woman. I mean, don't they have to? We'll talk to Monica Lindstrom about this. Don't you have to come out and say, that's not me if you're in a court of law. I mean, don't you say, well, if you're a defense attorney got a poke poke as many holes in it again. And again, it goes back to the DNA if the defense can attorney keep in mind prosecutors have to convince all twelve jury members a defense marriages has put doubt in one. Right. So if he can put that doubt based on the math know, we can show that, you know, the likelihood ratio means that somebody else in Chicago could have done this crime. That's what they're gonna play to this. So that's why when Tommy Thompson and chief talked about good old fashioned police work. I have no doubt right now they're talking to so many people in his past and his present. And they're getting this profile based on suspicious activities. She's been involved in that game don't rise to level when arrest but concerning and telling we're speaking with retired Phoenix police sergeant. Darren Birch thirty years police experience, the breaking news is that the rapist of hacienda has been arrested. They've got DNA evidence. So I don't I don't know of any. I mean, this is just a question that keeps going through my mind, if this monster was her nurse wouldn't have known. She was pregnant we everybody said, why didn't know we didn't know anything the people on the phone the nine one one call. She had a what she had a baby. And that I believe because we heard the nine one one, and they seemed very shocked, right? But I mean this guy if he was in that room all the time, and if he was raping her, and if he was also caring for her or I don't he must have known, well, and that goes to the assumption level, and it's mixed complete sense that we would assume he is the nurse has benders. Maybe not case. Maybe he was her nurse doing that window of opportunity where the crime occurred got her pregnant, thank you. And then and then he is now a nurse at another facility that under the. The same management or he stayed there. He knew he got her pregnant he continued to assaulter and he tried to cover this up. Well, she needs to be changed. I got this one. I'll do it. Good point gates. That's absolutely a possibility. Now, we all know, he'll do date means something so. You know? So what his game plan was at that point. Who knows maybe there was? And then again that goes into what my other statement about computers because maybe he was researching things like, you know, maybe he was planning. And again, this is all speculative granted. But yeah, it is telling that in other cases, I've had we found them still working at the facility. So they don't have a game plan. It's like these these these rapist getting caught later. It's like they have a plan to write bright. They have a plan to assault. But they don't have a plan to get away with it to get away with it or cover it up or leave town. They just don't have a plan. They just stick around. I just don't get it. And that's what I was talking to MAC earlier in the break that these predators. They absolutely driven by this obsession or seen sexual desire obsession to a part of being compulsion told you break, I talked to individual and it consumes his every waking second. So. They are so consumed with it that they want to prolong it, and they are victims of their own compulsion. Well, Darren Darren Birch we had him on last week. And he's the one that said, I still think he's probably there at the facility. I another prediction are there more victims. Or is this a one and done? This is the only victim at hacienda in regards to sexual assault sexual predator. I would be surprised if there's not more victims. It's just a matter of can we prove it. And can we find them? Okay. Darren thanks for joining us. Great insight. All right. The breaking news is that the monster at hacienda healthcare has been arrested up next. We're gonna ask former Arizona governor.

"Good example, that would be the prisoner that escaped us a murder out. New York was fleeing he was going into the the woods indicated data and the officers shot him in the back. That was absolutely the right thing to do. He's a murder on the Lam. He's got to kill people. You know, that's something that goes into weighing whether this was a shoot or don't shoot was an immediate threat. This happy articulate the officers going to have to explain why he believed this person was truly an immediate threat to the community discon- opposed to just anyone carrying a gun. Running from a crime scene. The other factor, of course, was initial belief that this person turned and looked at putting the officer in fear for his life. These are some of the elements that are gonna be weighing in with the investigation. We were talking with Darren Birch retired Phoenix police sergeant the author of twisted but true in the host of our five oh program here on KTAR news. We're talking about this Tempe. Police officer who shot a fourteen year old boy who he believes was fleeing a felony and was carrying a gun will ultimately you think the officer is going to be cleared in the shooting. I know you're never gonna we're never going to come to a situation where everybody's happy in this. But do you believe that ultimately officer will be cleared? I really don't know the reason I don't know is because the investigations include so many things that we don't know like not just officer statements, but in these witness statements and the on top, but other factors in addition to the video like the nine one one call on the officers. Mindset at the time. He was running. He'll did he perceive this person turning around even though he wasn't you know, it was obser- out of shape. There's so many factors.

Officer shoots, kills boy who had fake gun

"Guns you do react differently. You shouldn't. But the training is all about that's a threat. Now, there's also other factors involved in this one. It was so that the factors were overwhelming in terms of why the officer shot, there are factors. Will you get there? You happen to see a situation. She's a boy with a gun at the same level. Not that read where you need to. Engage. You know, you're going to be doing the commands and so forth. And then you wait to see what potential threat there is. So every situation different without doubt. But you're trained a lethal weapons lethal weapon. If is a threat the story, we're talking about fourteen have been shot by valley police officers so far in two thousand nineteen the one in Tempe, a fourteen year old fleeing the scene of a felony is Darren said. That's burglarizing a car. He had looked like a real gun, but it was a model air soft gun. Brandon Tatum for a Tucson police officers. Six years, are you guys trained to notice the difference between a fake gun and a real gun? Yeah. We we're trying to notice the difference. But it's impossible to try to apply that in every situation, especially when it says dynamic is chasing somebody, you know, we could you can do your best. And even nowadays man when I was on the swat team, we saw criminals painting the real guns orange on the tip two calls a police officer hesitate for a second. So they can have the upper hand. So there it goes into consideration at training to a certain degree. But at the end of the day, you gotta treat it all like a real gun because you just don't know having. And I think that what would it would it shows me is that their kid you wouldn't world. What reason fourteen year old why is carrying a gun. Anyway. Unless he's gonna try to use it against somebody as it being fake and somebody perceiving it to be real did either of you guys ever have to confront a child or a teenager with a gun. I was very fortunate. I have never had that situation. Brandon's. Thank god. Have you ever had to do that? I've never confronted a teenager with a gun, and I'm so you said fake gun. Correct. No either. I've had situations where I've. You mentioned earlier that with a gun, and maybe you hesitate a second or two, and again, you know, whatever the situation displays too, but yeah, human factors do kick in. And unfortunately, as it may be you may hesitate, right? Brandon tatum. Former Tucson police officers six years Darren Birch retired Phoenix police sergeant thirty years police experience twenty eight with Phoenix PD, gentlemen. Thank you. My pleasure. Having me wonderful show. All right. Thanks, man. So very tough spot. It's four incidents this year in twenty nineteen eighteen year old wounded in fountain hills in one thousand nine year old killed in Phoenix seventeen year old wounded in Peoria to be very fair. We haven't gone through those stories on the air to tell you. Right. What we really concentrated on was the Tempe. Police officer who shot and killed a fourteen year old boy who is fleeing the scene he was trying to burglarize a car, right? Yeah. It's a very tough situation. There's no question about it. And no one wants to see a fourteen year old killed and no one wants to see an officer have to live with that. But no one wants to see an officer killed absolutely not. They hesitated not blaming the officer. I mean, if a kid is burglarizing a car, you don't know how old the kid is first of light and the gun gun looks really gotta assume it's real you're running away. You're you're brandishing that fake weapon. Right. You know? You've got the cops got to go home. Cops gotta go home. All right coming up next.

"That he was stopped and pulled over and questioned and he said, I'm sorry, ma'am. That's exactly what I'm saying. So on good Morning America job by the police cop into the fact that. Yeah, that's what I did on mom said the officer was actually apologetic. Right. I think he was embarrassed. Of course, he he was trying to explain why he was calling to talk about core, basically trying to verify. Yeah. Are you the parents of these two children? Do you know who your children are with and is it? Okay. And I would be the same way. I mean, we've talked to sheriff Penzone. We've talked to former Phoenix police sergeant Darren Birch if you get a call you can't just say, well that's screwed up. I'm not responding. You can't say what stupid. Gotta check it out. You've got to check it out and verify it, and I'm sure cops have done that. And said, hey, look, I'm really sorry. But I got verify if this is true. And that's what this cop did this white ladies in idiot, I stopped but they can't arrest. Her white people have to stop calling the cops on innocent black people. And as I said yesterday MAC for just a second. Let me talk to the black people. Sure. This is me Gaydos, talking to you if you're black call the cops, I don't let the stupid white person called the cops. But how is this guy going to know that the cops even call the cops were called doesn't. But he should he should know that they're stupid white people out there. And this one woman who is white was following him everywhere. He should've just cloud. I see call the police. I if you're black always make sure you call the police. I that's my rule. Even though I'm white the mom that make sense. Yes. The mom said the kids were frightened when Louis officer questioned him. I guess I would be too. If the cops, you know, come up to my kids and say, hey, what what's going on here? And there that's my dad. What are you doing is? Just unbelievable. So there's the update on the stupid white person who called the cops on W WB babysitting. Black coming up next how in this day and age could a cat five hurricane sneak up on Florida next..

"Report says that Twenty-eight Phoenix police at a twenty Phoenix police. Shootings to use tasers Phoenix police officer deployed their tasers and just seven percent of cases. That involve officer gunfire in the first six months. Of, two thousand eighteen now we've talked about how violence against the police has gone up and specifically about. The Phoenix police department is this number? Too low to high why is it only? To tasers versus twenty. Eight Phoenix police shootings let's. Talk to Darren Birch now he's got thirty years law enforcement many with the Phoenix PD retired Phoenix police sergeant and author of, the new book twisted but true about his. Life, and law enforcement Darren is this number high? Or low to you twenty eight to No I think it? Sounds about right What's more important is looking at individual cases to. See if that was, appropriate or not that type of weapon a tasers. A very specialized, tool that has limitations so you wouldn't you say in a liberal type exchange for somebody with a gun or somebody charging you with a knife because of the distance that the taser. Propels probes is a limited distance appointee so if a single obstacle is, out there with a with. Justice, teaser he's gonna end up dead yeah that's kind of, what I thought if a man is let's say that you gotta suspect who's. Scott a knife and I'm the cop I'm. Not pulling my taser opponent my. Firearm that could cut. Right through. Me that's a deadly weapon. I'm not I'm not screwing around here I'm not going to try and, taste you if you've got a knife especially if you have a gun while. I'm, not even looking at my teaser Yeah there are scenarios but. They're very very unique where you have somebody with a night they're threatening but they're not charging and you may have multiple authors that's the perfect plan that you could then deployed peyser officers lives at. Risk because they have their service weapon out so there are those scenarios, but again the scenario would. Dictate, whether officer would would be able to have a watch, free appointing a taser Darren birches joining us and I would think that do. You usually use a taser if someone is. Resisting arrest like if one officer. Has the guy kinda. Down and. He's struggling and he's moving. And he doesn't wanna be arrested is that isn't that when are you, tell me if I'm wrong isn't that when most officers deploy the teacher taser Really depends. On a, particular police they all. Have their different general orders or operational procedures as it. Dictates the use of keizer However I can't say before I left, the with the Phoenix you weren't able use? Your, taser within uncooperative, combative individual but, again teaser you don't wanna use it around anybody. Who's pregnant, you don't want to use it somebody that you say. Has a health problem maybe your heart condition so there's limitations to the keizer so I don't want to over use. It but I don't want. To you, said the best thing about tasers is always having the training and no shoot shoot scenarios and when, to use a taser. Because that's the best kind of training is 'cause there's so? Many specialized scenarios we couldn't? Even lift them in a day retired Phoenix police sergeant and author Darren Birch joins us over thirty years of police experience then then Darren? And I think I know the answer to, this but you tell me then why have one Why why have a taser then if. It's used so infrequently and if. Most calls it's necessary for you to have, a firearm and I. Don't wanna take firearms away from cops but why have the taser then because, it's the perfect toll for. Perfect situations just like obser- pleasant is a you know a threshold for you know to prevent that use of force just like verbal persuasion just like your Mace just like your side handle petanque just like. The you know what they call the beanbag. These are, all tools and collectively. They provide us with a less lethal alternative which is. Good even if it's seven percent because seven percent time STAN thought, that Darren one thing I don't understand is Tasers don't they don't do the job all the time, you could nail. A guy with a taser and for one reason, or another guy still, walking I don't get that part Oh it's happened to me I had a young officer there. Was a subject that was. Threatening a woman who was speeding Prager into an apartment the officer right fully soul. Was a plate of a, barricade situation, and was ready deploys teaser it was ineffective on him I went to grab. Him and throw him on the. Ground and I got paid so it. Depends on different you know drugs in their? System and. All sorts of other factors to include their. Clothing so it's not the perfect tool it's a great tool in certain situations what does it, feel like to get taste Fun Not specifically what is not, fun lock your, body what? Happened It does it if you picture you know, being executed when putting a sometime, metal device into, a outlet Now like that Overextended. Amount, of time luckily I was able to just hold onto the guy until the cycle is off and that was able to resume the fight retired Phoenix police. Sergeant and, author, Darren Birch Darren thank you for the insight as always have. A great weekend you guys to answer. Effort all week what does it feel like? To get taste not fun and it. Shouldn't be, fun I mean there's things, should not tickle but as we pointed out sometimes, they don't work but his Darren pointed out better to have that tool in your arsenal. Shirt. And not yes, so this again we always tell you read read more. Than the headline Twenty-eight Phoenix police shootings to use tasers, they, will? Well? Well? Why why what it's not, for every situation but neither is a. Gun fire aspects these days are more combative They're carrying a weapon and. I'll say it again if I'm a cop? You got a knife you ain't gonna. Taste wrangling, and get shot right because, if you come towards me with a knife that, how did deadly weapon and guess what I'm going home you might not be but I. Am.

"To today's report that says violence against. Police officers in Phoenix up forty five percent yeah. One in ten of those assaults involve a. Firearm but the police chief says this is, a memo to the community and. I I don't know what, the answer is but. I applaud her for being this transparent it's a problem it's a. Problem when you have in a year fifty percent of of. An escalation that people feel and I don't know what the word is. Emboldened determined just violent against police officers that's. A real problem but I will say this and I don't know because I I'm not on that side of. The law I'm not on the bad side of the law I'm on the. Good side of the law. I don't think. It's Phoenix PD's pro like I don't think they're bad cops I don't think it's a it's a systemic problem like we've seen in other departments. In other. Parts of the country I don't think they necessarily have to change the. Way radically. They changed the way they They train but something has to be addressed here I just don't know what do you, think the Phoenix PD does a great job, I you? Know, anything and you have to say bad cop all, right listen there are bad, people in radio there are bad people, in your, business wherever you're there are bad people, in fire departments or police stations they're always. Going to be. A couple of bad apples but police are getting, attacked there there are people that just don't listen, to police anymore and I really think that. That you know Darren Birch made a. Good point it's from. All these videos and social media and it's the way that, part of the media will will put a. Story out there cop shot so-and-so so in the. Back twice well then you don't hear the. First part of the story where the guy, had a gun and shot three. Times at the cop first, and then ran or. Something like that you know the whole story isn't told but I. Mean this is very very troubling when violence against police officers. Up forty five percent and A year yeah you're. Listening to, the big four at four, we start the, four o'clock hour, in the. First twenty minutes we bring you four, big blockbuster.

"It, got a. Little ugly So she, gets up and tries to move past the, officer it looks like somewhere along the line there's a kick possibly involved. From, this woman to the cop and that's, kind of where we. Stand now the mother of the woman speaking out saying the. Cops should be fired listen if you're the mother of, this woman, it's. Tough to watch you don't? Wanna see your daughter Pushed back onto a seat but I mean when are we going to when are we. Going, to when are people going to start complying with officers I mean goodness gracious. I mean. In cops used to say hey listen we need to talk I, need to talk what happened, and then somebody runs, somebody pulls a gun now or somebody's starts yelling at the cops it's just gotten out of hand and the. More we see these videos, come to light the more unfortunately we're. Going to have this conversation because the video, doesn't tell the full story Washington's video, I was concerned to the point with it bothered me seeing it go from zero to. Ugly but that same reason some ugly is the first clue. That there's more to this story because. That officer comes in very low key very nice has a, greeting and then we don't hear the conversation, so the the key is in that conversation he probably told her to. Sit, down you're under investigative detention because there's, he's investigating crime offer. Has twenty plus minutes to investigate And when she gets up, that's when he said no you're not. Has every right to stop her the mom. Of the thirty two year old sky, off the force he has no business being on the force that kind of anger Darren I'm sorry, I I was gonna ask the question. I understand where the moms coming. From but I also don't understand if this, woman, how, do you know you're. Being detained I understand. Mom says that you shouldn't do that to my daughter, but I I don't, know, when I'm being detained the officer hasn't said. I'm arrested so why couldn't I get up and say okay well. I have to go now I'm gonna leave I'll get off the. Bus And I I don't know does that give the officer the right to slam me to, the ground yeah what we're we're talking about is what's referred to as an investigative detention and based on, Terry versus Ohio in one, thousand nine hundred sixty five or something. When spring court ruled that we have the right to stop there's also goes into Terry frisks where you have a right to make sure there's not weapons to, hurt you all that kind of. Stem to, a point where we as police officers have the right to detain someone we, don't have to advise them by some type, of Miranda warning if you don't have? To say no because if he did that that would eat into, your twenty, minutes but the supreme court felt that, an average person understands, that at. Being investigated for a crime you have to, stick, around, and were allowed to. Use whatever force reasonable. For reasonable last a key This is the, key was this reasonable, it will The average officer now average person so no words the officer has has certain things to be aware of. The purses that can how some type of threat so. She grabbed her purse, and tried to get off I, saw two bags I believe one was the bus. So, those are things were the author can control now the one thing, I will say from. The mother's point of view. I totally get that I do watch this video it bothered me and I'm officer and it wasn't until I understand the nuances of he's investigating a threat against that bus driver fast the key to this whole thing now that, investigative detention and also when, he shoves her down push. Back down her feet go up. In the air he could have very well believed. She was trying to kick him as objective. Observer it, looked like that was accidental and incidental Darren Birch retired police sergeant not only Phoenix PD but. Has, over thirty years. Law for law enforcement experience. Also he's an author he's. Written about his career you can find that on Amazon is. Book on Amazon thirty thousand feet there has been a spate of videos coming out of Mesa about excessive force if you're the chief if you're a cop on the beat does that bother you is it is it, disconcerting or is it hey, the public knows what we. Now go through I mean if. People are complaining but this is the type of. Crap we deal with how does it bother. You or, would it bother you if we were chief or Cup the first thing that bothers me if. I, was pleased house. Right now is every single. Time ago on a call there's somebody with a Phone recording your every move you or your body Cam yeah the? Bottom I don't mind because that's part, of the job but I can't go to a restaurant with. Somebody filming hoping that and instigating wanting to have that next YouTube videos so almost bathing? You that's the. Problem I like to transparency I like the discussion I like the dialogue because. The more people understand through these conversations we're having that yeah you have to. Stick around if the, officers investigating crime from police officer perspective, is common sense? But maybe it's, not to the public so these, are, good conversations to have do you have to. Discipline this, officer as the police chief in order to I don't wanna say convince the, public but it doesn't look good and we need the public support I'm going to have? To discipline or maybe fire you does it come down to that I hope not I say that because I hope. That the chiefs don't Disciplined based on public sentiment. Opposed, to the officers actions and apparently of what they are no words when the, cheap will have the investigation. Who have internal affairs vitamin with all the intelligence to include the officers camera and he'll be able. To, put all. That together did the officer act do you think, he'll lose his job I don't even know if you'll have any discipline at all okay yeah if you showed at. All if there's good. Reason for him. To stop her and. Then that goes back. To what we can't hear did he tell her sit back down and did she, refuse, that order that's the order Nassau suggestion nobody knows how to comply with the company anymore honestly, all these videos nobody wants to comply. They just wanna fight or they want. To ignore or they want to move on and just continue walking it's disrespectful? And I think it's gonna put cops, lives in danger because maybe the cops need to be more. Aggressive honestly if if you're not going to be if you're not gonna listen to me? I gotta be. More aggressive I love that we live in a very Professional age. Of police work and we really do this isn't a sixties and I've? Talked to a. Lot of. Officers from the sixties and they say it's more. Violent, today than it, was really yeah that's. Coming from officers that some through some tough stuff and I do believe it's more violent today and I. Do believe. Some of these videos do hurt us in terms of disrespect but I still like the dialogue that these.

"Cops were just called on her but. Now accuses her of kicking him she I think she kicked the cop I, mean when when the cop, definitely put his hands on her when she tried. To get off the bus tried to walk past them it did, seem like. She did Puerto legs up, and try and kick him. The officer says. You're you just tried to kick me, the problem I have with, all this stuff is now that this woman is a victim, in the police officers just mean well I think the police officers trying. To. Do his job was he forceful yes I think in this day and age, you you have to. Be forced so you don't know what this. Woman, is doing it turned. Out later that she has a.
