    "Friends" had quite literally dropped a guy off at home after a party. He was in a kneeling position with his face on the kitchen floor. He'd been like that for at least 12 hours during which time the various fluids had leaked out of his facial orifices and quite literally glued his face to the linoleum. Attempting to move him, there was some debate about using something to pry him loose. A few determined tugs did the job, at which time there was about a 10 second fart and gurgle. If you want to make a pretty corpse, don't pass away with your face pressed down on something flat. Just sayin'. He was an OD.

    We had a similar one recently. Neighbors hadn't seen a guy for about three weeks and said it was odd that he never came out to socialize anymore. This place is an old folks home where people live alone and care for themselves, but they have bingo and stuff like that every night. It's pseudo-city owned and we have a master key for all of the apartments to let people back in after they lock themselves out (probably a semi-daily call department wide).

    We met a neighbor at the front door (actually about a dozen of them) and they told us why they were concerned. We asked if anyone had noticed a smell and they all said no. Well, the smell hit us as soon as we stepped off the elevator and we knew he was dead. He was nice and ripe because it was summer and the A/C was off, and he had been dead for two to three weeks. It's funny how the sense of smell for the neighbors had deteriorated so much with age.

    The dead guy had basically melted into the floor and the morgue guys gave him a tug but he wouldn't come free. One of them grabbed a pair of scissors off the kitchen counter and cut the guy away from the carpet. He was just as casual about it as I would be cutting a tag off of a new shirt.

    What a way to go, getting cut out of your carpet with your own scissors. The guy was super organized too, his sock drawer was perfect, his watches were in a line on his dresser, his USB charging cords were even rolled and secured.

    I recently attended an autopsy and there was another autopsy being performed for a fellow who'd had a nasty car crash. His injuries included, but weren't limited to, a completely fractured sternum, a severed spine at about nipple level, and multiple skull fractures. I overheard the following when they had removed his lungs:


    Cutter: Don't get much deader than this.
    Coroner: They are all the exact same amount of dead.

    Being a rather literally minded person myself, I enjoyed that.

    Prior to attending an autopsy in person, I didn't realize that they tracked the weight of your organs on a big white board in the room and it's printed plenty big enough for everyone who walks through the bay to see. I also noted that one of the boxes to be filled in was for the weight of your "reproductive". I went ahead and offered a modest cash bribe in case I'm ever one of the subjects on the table to pad that number a bit. I'm sure it's a well worn joke, but, you know, it was new to me.

    Recently took a call, mentioned before, of a burglar that I chased, lost, found, chased again, lost again and was the case agent when he was found. God, I need a dog...

    Dude had a 10-12 inch screwdriver shoved in his waist band when I found him. Took some crap from the shift for not jumping on him when I found him and saving the perimeter and chasing time....Charged with breaking and entering and tampering with evidence.

    Folks, a screwdriver will screw you up. About two weeks later I was working Chief's Overtime at the hospital. A pickup pulled in, and and a guy looked up and said "I need help". Went to him and found he was still trying to pound a small man under him. Saw several stab wounds. Victim was stabbed 15 times with a flathead screwdriver. Straight from the trauma bay to surgery.

    Suspect was crazy, and CIT officers (me being primary) talked him out of the pickup. Normally, someone trying to "wash" blood off of their hands and arms with motor oil is an experienced person who does not want to go to jail. Talked him into custody, but the responding agency with primary jurisdiction got pissed when the medical staff took his clothes and shoved him in a shower so they could repair any wounds they found, as you do with a guy covered in blood.

    This story was postponed due to an IA complaint. I was exonerated...

    The original burglar plead guilty at his preliminary hearing....

    #70 Patrolman Rod L. Bradway, 41
    September 20, 2013
    6700 Eagle Pointe North Drive
    Gunfire

    Crown Hill Cemetery
    700 West 38th Street
    Indianapolis, Indiana
    Section 97 Lot 4002






    6700 Eagle Pointe North Drive

    Patrolman Rod L. Bradway
    On September 20, 2013, at approximately 1:52 A.M., Patrolman Rod L. Bradway, 41, responded to a domestic disturbance in the Eagle Pointe Apartment complex in the 6700 block of Eagle Pointe Drive North, near West 46th Street and I-465.
    Upon arrival, Patrolman Bradway heard a woman screaming for help inside an apartment. He called for backup on his radio and told fellow officers to “step it up.” A Northwest District control operator asked Patrolman Bradway if he needed more assistance. He replied, “Yeah, I got to try and force entry.”
    Patrolman Bradway then forced his way through the apartment’s door to help the woman and her infant child. Steven Byrdo, a twenty-four-year-old convicted felon, was standing behind the door and ambushed Patrolman Bradway as he entered the apartment. Byrdo fired at least six shots from a .380 semi-automatic pistol, mortally wounding Patrolman Bradway.
    The fatal shot went just above Patrolman Bradway’s body armor and into his chest. Patrolman Bradway fired his Glock .40 caliber service weapon eight times, with many of the shots striking Byrdo. Patrolman Maurice Shipley arrived during the gun battle and also shot Byrdo, who was stuck at least seven times. He died at the scene.
    Medics rushed Patrolman Bradway to Wishard Hospital at approximately 2:10 A.M. He passed away shortly thereafter.
    Investigators later learned Byrdo held the woman, described as his girlfriend, and her child hostage for several hours before the woman made her way to the apartment balcony and yelled for help. Investigators believed Byrdo intended to kill the woman, her infant child and possibly take his own life.
    Steven Byrdo was released from prison in June 2013 after serving time for violation of probation after convictions for dealing cocaine and possession of cocaine.
    Mayor Ballard stated:
    “The City of Indianapolis lost a decorated hero, husband and father today. Officer Rod Bradway gave his life protecting the people of our community by charging ahead to confront the unknown. I ask the citizens of Indianapolis to join me in keeping Officer Bradway’s family, friends and brothers and sisters in IMPD in their thoughts and prayers.”
    Chief Hite said, “Blessed are the peacemakers in our community who wear the blue, and thank God for people like Rod in this police department.” Chief Hite posthumously awarded Patrolman Bradway the Purple Heart and Medal of Honor.
    Director of Public Safety Riggs called the murder of Patrolman Bradway “an attack against what is right in our city.”
    The funeral held at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis attracted over four thousand officers and citizens who wanted to pay their last respects to one of Indianapolis’ finest. Patrolman Bradway’s final resting place is in the Crown Hill Cemetery’s Heroes of Public Safety section.

    Patrolman Bradway’s body arrives in Crown Hill Cemetery
    Patrolman Bradway was a member of IMPD’s third Recruit Class. He served the department for five years, and recently received the department’s Medal of Bravery for saving a suicidal man intent on killing himself with a butcher knife.
    Prior to joining the police department, Patrolman Bradway was a member of the Wayne Township Fire Department as a firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician for ten years. Firefighters, paramedics and EMTs knew him as a dedicated man always looking for ways to help people. Many of them described Patrolman Bradway as a true public servant.
    Always looking out for others, Patrolman Bradway and his wife, Jamie, organized a pet relief drive, collecting dog food, cat food and other supplies for the victims of the May 2013 tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.
    Patrolman Bradway grew up in Nappanee, Indiana and was survived by his wife, his teenage son, Jonathan, and teenage daughter, Sierra.

    Really don't want to follow that one BBI.

    This happened this week. I have warned guys about using personal cell phones to document work stuff. My coworkers think I am too cautious with that, or am bucking to be issued a phone. I have several second hand stories of certain attorneys subpoenaing phone records for full time tactical guys who get involved DWIs and DVs , intending to show that while in mandatory update training they were texting or surfing the internet. But this happened, and it reinforces my opinion on a practical, rather than theoretical level.

    Ofc. A has an ongoing beef with his boss, Sgt B. He takes pictures and video on his personal cell to underscore his complaint. Because of shenanigans Ofc A also has a beef with Lt. C, so Ofc A feels justified in jumping the chain of command to Rear Admiral D. Just before going upstairs Ofc A texts Ofc E that he is taking his complaint upstairs. While chatting with Rear Admiral D Ofc A pulls out his phone to show the good Rear Admiral his video and photographic evidence. Ofc A opens file and hands phone over. While Rear Admidal D is going through the photos and videos Ofc E gets back from coffee or the bathroom or whatever he was doing, then texts Ofc.A:

    "Dude! What are you doing going up there? You know the Rear Admiral doesn't give a fuck about us or anything we have to say! He is a pogue who just wants us to not make waves, otherwise he might have to do something. You know he will look out for the supes over us every day of the week and will hang us out to dry."

    Rear Admiral D handed the phone back to Ofc A saying "you have a text", then asked Ofc A to leave, and had dispatch call Ofc E to come up to meet him.

    My phone is my phone. I like to control it. Like when a buddy texts a pornographic meme as a joke, or when Ofc Z left to go to another agency we signed him up for several gay porn sites so he got 50-60 gay porn emails and texts a day. No one needs to see that shit, cause we don't have much control over who sends us what and when. In today's world we still do that shit, but it can be a real career ender for the sender or recipient if an uninvolved party sees and complains.

    Just a thought.

    My county has decreed that employees will not text anything on county cell phones. This ruling pertains to the fact that text messages are forever and are subject to freedom of information requests.
