A woman in Miami recently performed a role reversal on a police officer by pulling him over for speeding.

Claudia Castillo, who says she was the driver, posted three YouTube videos on Friday of her following a supposedly speeding Miami-Dade police officer. She takes several minutes to catch him, but finally gets him to pull off the highway

When the officer hops out of the car to talk to her, she gives him an earful about responsibility

“You passed me like I was standing still,” Castillo tells the officer. “I pushed 80 to try and catch up with you…and I was still eating your dust.” Read more…

Of course, the majority of posts concern public safety information, or appeals for tip-offs regarding local crime or missing persons. Read more…

Former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw was sentenced on Thursday to 263 years in prison, the maximum sentence, having been found guilty of four counts of first-degree rape, among many other charges, including second-degree rape and forcible oral sodomy

He was charged with 36 crimes that ranged from stalking to rape, and was convicted of 18. All the crimes took place from December 2013 to June 2014

Prosecutors told jury members that Holtzclaw picked his victims because they were poor, black and had criminal records, and were therefore unlikely to be believed by police. Thirteen women accused the former officer of sexual assault, and six of those women accused him of rape Read more…
