Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Plans Rally in Fort Worth Stockyards
09/20/2018 6:20pm

Fort Worth police are planning special patrols in the historic Stockyards area this weekend after a warning that an “extremely violent” outlaw motorcycle gang is organizing a rally there.A number of shop owners have posted signs on their doors saying, “No club affiliated attire of any kind allowed inside our establishment.”"We're taking nothing for granted," said city council member Carlos Flores who represents North Fort Worth. "We are going to have a very visible presense at the Stockyards. There will be a lot of police officers, a lot of uniforms to be seen."The gang, known as the Mongols, is based in California.A report from the U.S. Justice Department identifies the Mongols as “an extremely violent (gang) that poses a serious criminal threat to the Pacific and Southwestern regions of the U.S.”The report said the group frequently commits crimes including murder, assault and intimidation.Quoting an intelligence warning from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Star-Telegram reported as many 700 Mongols could arrive in the Stockyards beginning late Thursday.Police said officers will make sure visitors and everyone are safe."They might be wondering what's going on when they see all these motorcyclists coming into town," said Officer Brad Perez. "We want them to see just as many officers out there for their safety."Perez added that officers reached out to local leaders of a rival biker gang and were told they planned no confrontation.Several tourists interviewed on Exchange Avenue said they weren't worried."People who come down here are probably good, solid Texans and they're not really threatened by that ilk of folk," said Karen Choate, of Las Cruces, New Mexico.Photo Credit: Scott Gordon, NBC 5 News

"The suspect is involved in two aggravated sexual assault offenses."

Researchers: Society Struggles to Define Harassment
09/20/2018 5:49pm

This week, independent investigators released a report that confirmed Sports Illustrated’s bombshell about widespread harassment in the Dallas Mavericks business office.“It saddened me more than surprised me,” said Jim Quick, Professor of Leadership & Organizational Behavior in the Department of Management at The University of Texas at Arlington. North Texas Giving Day Celebrates 10 Years of Generosity In 1998, Quick helped review three studies on sexual harassment for a report in the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology. In 2017, he and M. Ann McFadyen revisited the issue. Nearly 20 years later, little has changed. Harassment at work is still under-reported and is still a chronic health concern, say the researchers.Quick says society struggles to define sexual harassment and understand what's often behind it. Cross-Examination Continues in Trial of Ex-Mesquite Officer “Sexual harassment is an abuse of power problem. So the regulation of power and the management of power is really at the heart of the sexual abuse problem,” said Quick. “It's not about sex.”Quick says employers need to understand the psychology, establish surveillance systems to monitor people for signs of abuses of power. Victim: Mark Cuban’s Punishment is 'Not Enough' That's in addition to establishing good reporting systems to send concerns to managers who can take action.“It’s incumbent upon management all the way through an organization to communicate up about the problem,” explained Quick.“In healthy organizations, these problems will occur in a small percentage of the time but they get surfaced, they get addressed and they will get resolved,” added Quick.Over the last year, the #MeToo movement has shed more light on harassment, sex abuse and assault. Quick calls it a national catharsis that will ultimately help bring change.“You can't solve a problem when its buried,” he said.Photo Credit: NBC 5 News

Why Hasn't Amber Guyger Been Terminated?
09/20/2018 4:40pm

Following the arrest of Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger, who is accused of manslaughter after fatally shooting her neighbor Botham Jean, Dallas Chief of Police U. Rene Hall was asked why Guyger hadn't been terminated.At the time Hall said she wasn't able to fire Guyger. On Thursday, Hall elaborated on why that is, saying: Dallas County DA and Challenger Field Questions About Jean “There is one overriding reason that I have not taken any administrative or employment action against Officer Amber Guyger. I don’t want to interfere with the on-going criminal investigation into her actions. Here’s why. As an employer, DPD can compel Officer Guyger to provide a statement during a DPD administrative investigation and those statements given to DPD could potentially compromise the criminal investigation. That is not a risk I am willing to take. We cannot let the criminal case be determined on a ’technicality’ rather than the facts. An exhaustive and thorough criminal investigation is essential, and as soon as we are assured that conducting an administrative investigation will not impede on the criminal investigation, we will proceed.” Demonstrators March With Casket to Protest Jean Shooting NBC 5 Law Enforcement Expert Don Peritz said after the shooting occurred two completely separate, but parallel, investigations began -- one administrative (Internal Affairs) and another that was criminal. Marchers Outside AT&T Stadium Protest Police Shootings "They are separate investigations designed to protect the integrity of the criminal investigation and to protect the rights of everyone involved -- the suspect, the witnesses, the assigned investigators and the department," Peritz said.Peritz added that Hall turned over the Dallas police portion of the criminal investigation to the Texas Rangers. At the same time, investigators with the Dallas County District Attorney Office launched their criminal investigation.Investigations Breakdown Administrative Investigations (Internal Affairs):Involve interviews, between Internal Affairs Detectives and the accused officer.This investigation is focused between the accused employee and the department.Involves employee requirement to follow departmental policy to fully cooperate with investigators and answer all questions asked (compelled or forced to answer truthfully about what happened).Involves Garrity protection for the accused officer against self-incrimination, because the accused is compelled to answer. Information gained in the administrative investigation cannot be shared from the administrative side to the criminal investigation side, however, the criminal investigators can share information gained with the administrative side (Internal Affairs). (Garrity v New Jersey (1967)Administrative investigations are directed toward employee misconduct, such as department policy or rules/regulations violations.Criminal Investigations:Involve interrogations between the criminal investigators assigned (in this case, now the Texas Rangers and Dallas County DA investigators and the suspect (Officer Amber Guyger) Focused on violations of state law (Texas Penal Code)The result of the criminal investigation is ultimately between the accused suspect (in this case the Officer Amber Guyger) a criminal prosecutor (the DA), and the court.Photo Credit: NBC 5 News
