Durham, NC Cop Testifies Faking 911 Calls To Enter Homes Is "Official Policy"

Chris | InformationLiberation

A Durham, North Carolina police officer testified in court it's "official policy" for Durham cops to claim they received a 911 call from a residence in order to illegally enter the home under the ruse of a "safety check."

Indy Week reports:
Several Durham police officers lied about non-existent 911 calls to try to convince residents to allow them to search their homes, a tactic several lawyers say is illegal. The officers targeted residences where individuals with outstanding warrants were thought to be living, and told them that dispatch had received a 911 call from that address, when no such call had been made.

However, Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez says the 911 tactic was never a part of official policy. Last month, the department officially banned the practice, according to a memo from Lopez.

The tactic came to light at a court hearing on May 27, when a Durham Police officer testified it was part of official departmental policy. The hearing involved a defendant who had been charged with marijuana possession. (The INDY is not naming the defendant because the charges against her were dropped.)

In February, Officer A.B. Beck knocked on the door of the defendant's home in South-Central Durham. When the defendant answered the door, Beck told her—falsely—that someone in her home had called 911 and hung up, and that he wanted to make sure everyone was safe. The defendant permitted Beck to enter her home, where he discovered two marijuana blunts and a marijuana grinder.

When Beck took the witness stand, he admitted to fabricating the 911 story in order to enter the house. Beck testified that his true intent was to serve a warrant, though he never produced the warrant in the courtroom.

Beck further testified that the 911 ruse was permitted under a department policy in cases where domestic violence is alleged, recalled Morgan Canady, the defendant's lawyer.

During cross-examination, Canady quizzed Beck further.

Did you say there was a 911 hang-up? she asked.

Yes, he said.

But there was not a 911 hang-up?


So you entered the house based on a lie?


And this is your policy for domestic violence warrants?

The police chief is claiming ignorance and says no such policy exists. Police routinely use "false alerts" with drug dogs to gain access to peoples' vehicles (and potentially steal them through forfeiture laws), so to think they'd do the same with fake 911 calls to get access to peoples' homes is no surprise.

193138 Yet another interesting article about institutionalized corruption in the blue-line gang. Problem is, the police are getting ever-further out of control even as coverage of their borked-up behavior is getting better.

So ..... how do we stomp on this criminal behavior once and for all?

7147 A while back, around 2000 I think, deputies came to my door (Orange County, Florida) and made statements very similar to those described. They were very earnest about making sure everyone was safe, so I allowed them to enter. Fortunately, they found nothing obvious and left.

But after thinking about it, I came to suspect that they had made up the 911 call, just as described here.

I'll never fall for that again. But the problem is, there's always another con....from "enforcers" of the law.

75145 What's even worse is it's not criminal behavior, technically they are allowed to lie in order to get their way, in this case in order to convince the citizen to open the door.

75145 @7147, keep in mind that if you "don't fall for that again", you face very real possibility of repeating this scenario:

17256 As someone who lived in Durham for 8 years (before coming to his sense and moving to Chapel Hill, where the police act like human beings who serve the public instead of being absolutely corrupt), I can attest to these thugs who masquerade as cops.

Just look at the history of corruption there. Remember the Duke alleged rape? Where the AG lied and misused his office to harass Duke students? It was not a one time affair. In fact, no parent should EVER send their child to Duke, since the police there specifically target Duke students, as well as the local black population.

It's been going on for decades, perhaps centuries. Durham NC is truly the armpit of North Carolina. Anyone with a brain avoids the area, or takes the chance on being illegally detained and arrested, and having drugs 'dropped' on them.

As this article shows, the corruption goes all the way to the top, and for some reason, most Durham residents put up with this. In any legitimate city, the police chief would be at minimum fired, and in a truly legal environment would be arrested for corruption.
