  • SO arrested, impersonating police

    He works Security in a FEMA evacuee trailer park in the town of Baker, just north of Baton Rouge La. Then he goes home to the trailer park where he lives and decides to play Hill Street Blues on a couple of citizens.

    Security guard accused of claiming to be officer
    Advocate Baker - Zachary bureau
    Published: Jun 12, 2007 - Page: 4B

    BAKER — Police arrested a security guard accused of handcuffing two people Sunday while claiming he was a police officer, Police Chief Mike Knaps said.

    Knaps said officers arrested Johnny Rogers III, 25, a security officer at the Renaissance Village trailer park on Sunday night after a complaint by a 27-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy. The incident occurred in another Baker mobile home park, where Rogers lives at 2119 W. Azalea Drive.

    The other two residents said Rogers told them they were under arrest for stealing bicycles.

    The 27-year-old man said Rogers managed to put a handcuff on one of his arms before he broke free, while the 15-year-old said he was handcuffed and thrown to the ground, Knaps said.

    The two also claimed Rogers drew a pistol at one point and told them he was a police officer. The teenager said Rogers waved a collapsible baton in his face, the police chief said.

    Knaps said officers booked Rogers at Parish Prison with false imprisonment while armed with a dangerous weapon, false personation of a police officer and simple battery. Officers found a pistol matching the one described by the victims in Rogers’ home, Knaps said.

        Sounds a lot like the story I heard of a guy one time working at a company I was with who decided to handcuff five people illegally "just to scare them". His supervisor decided to call the real police to continue to "just scare them". The guard was stupid enough to play along with that and ended up with a one way ticket to jail.

          It appears the SO works as a FEMA Contract SO at a FEMA Disaster Recovery trailer park. These assignments are on Federal Property and are armed. Some include cuffs, spray and batton. But, the SO's authority ends when SO leaves the facility.

          Some are pretty rough assignments but you never hear the dark and violent side of the job. And then, some assignments are wonderful with community support, picnics, etc. This spoken from experience (not a web-search).

            I'll reserve judgement for now. These complaints could be entirely bogus.

              I was thinking the same thing. The story says the police recieved a complaint, and the police went to the officer's home. There is not enough info to tell if the incident even happened. He had a gun that looked like the one the "victims" described. If he carried a Glock, a lot of people could tell that he carried a Glock just from seeing it in his holster as he walked by. The same could be said for most of the popular firearms that S/O & LE carry. I'm not saying he didn't do it, but let's get some more info before we crucify this guy.

                As someone pointed out,it's a FEMA park set up to house evacuees. The guards are contract security who control the property and residents.
                Since the park opened there were several problems with the guards and residents not seeing eye to eye on park rules. The media got involved and had issues when they were denied acces to the park or the evacuees there.
                From- http://www.democracynow.org/article..../04/24/1346217

                AMY GOODMAN: That was Donna Azeez, speaking to us in Renaissance Village in Baker, Louisiana. As we traveled around, the security guards told us that we had to leave. These were security guards from C.S.S. of Grand Rapids, Michigan, hired by FEMA. That's Corporate Security Solutions. These were guards, a number of whom had been in Afghanistan and Iraq. The residents, though, of Renaissance Village, seemed surprised that they weren't allowed to speak in their own community, and one man asked if he could talk to us. And this is what happened.

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Deception. Lies. A famine. A shortage.

                AMY GOODMAN: Wait, don’t stop.

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Everything. And it ain't no good to be here.

                SECURITY GUARD: Turn it off.

                AMY GOODMAN: We were going in the car, and he said, "Please interview me."

                SECURITY GUARD: Yeah, he -- he can't. That’s not his privilege.

                AMY GOODMAN: He’s not allowed to talk?

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: What's wrong? What's wrong?

                SECURITY GUARD: You can go -- get that -- you’ve known the deal since --

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: No, I don't know the deal. Tell me. What is the deal?

                SECURITY GUARD: You can go get interviewed as long as it’s off post. Otherwise, you, like I said, I can call the 800 FEMA number and have them come in --

                AMY GOODMAN: You mean, he has to come off of the property?

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: What is -- there’s a problem being interviewed?

                SECURITY GUARD: Turn it off.

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Turn it off, man. I don't want no problems.

                AMY GOODMAN: Okay.

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: ’Cause I don't know anything about not being able to be interviewed.

                SECURITY GUARD: You -- no, you can be interviewed, as long as it’s off the installation.

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Well, okay, we can move over there.

                SECURITY GUARD: Other than that that [inaudible].

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Okay, we can move over there. ‘Cause I was sitting out here reading my Bible. But I didn't know anything about -- we will not being interviewed, because --

                SECURITY GUARD: Yes, you can be interviewed --

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Okay.

                SECURITY GUARD: -- if they had a FEMA representative with them, but since they don’t and do not have an appointment --

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Oh, okay. ‘Cause I know they do it all the time.

                SECURITY GUARD: Yes, they have the FEMA public relations officer with them.

                RENAISSANCE VILLAGE RESIDENT: Okay, well, I didn't know.

                SECURITY GUARD: I’m not mad at you, Red. You know that.

                AMY GOODMAN: As we drove off of Renaissance Village, we were chased by the guards in golf carts, who said they would be taking down our license plate and that we couldn't return. This was the day after FEMA had ended the free meals that they had been providing to the more than thousand people, anyone who wanted to take advantage of it in Renaissance Village, again, about an hour away from New Orleans in Baker, Louisiana.
                This has been repeated in serveral FEMA parks throughout the State. Media, when able to interview the residents, often are told that they feel like prisoners. Residents are required to wear their ID badges at all times, they have a curfew, the guards are so tight with the rules....blah blah blah. While they complain about the constant security presence they also report how unsafe the residents feel. That at night "the knives come out". The numerous problems with gangbangers and domestic violence. Bitch Bitch bitch. So the complain when the guards enforce the rules yet still complain that they aren't safe. It's a no win situation.

                    Right on EMT. Thank goodness not all parks are like this. I've worked some that are a dream job. Communittee cook-outs, clean ups, watch groups. Just like a friendly small town.

                    You always need to be on your game. You are the 'police department' 'first responder' 'chaplain' and 'peace keeper' of this small comunittee.

                      I used to work for C.S.S., and I am glad I do not anymore. Thank God. Of course, this was over a year ago that I was in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
                      They had some very strange policies then.

                      In Baton Rouge, some of the trailer parks were infested with gangs, but the residents were more afraid of the Local sheriff than they were of the gangs. WE were told the local sheriff would not authorize us to carry guns in the parks, but we were told by our supervisors off the record that we should carry concealed. we were also told by one supervisor that if anything happened that we needed backup, he had an in with one of the local gangs and they would come to support us.

                      Thats who I want as backup, a gang. Right.

                      The problem with the bicycles adds to the ring of truth. One of the rules was that no one was allowed to ride bikes in the parks after curfew. Our guards were instucted to stop bike riders and to sieze the bikes if it was past curfew
                      and not to return them. Period.

                      Thank God I never worked in the Baton rouge parks.

                      It is dangerous in many of those parks, A CSS guard was killed there several months ago, shot in the head in a Park east of New Orleans.

                        WOW. I've never heard of a County Sheriff dictating rules on Federal Property. FEMA trailer parks come under the same US Code as Federal Court Houses (Federal Protection Service) and other government owned properties. Someone in FEMA Security needs to be notified of this situation and take some action. I don't understand the taking of personal property (bikes) by a Federal employee (contract) without court order. I am totaly confused on this deal. WOW.

                          It sounds like The Law (The Word of the County Sheriff, who you will do his bidding, boy, or end up gone...) is more powerful than the law (United States Code) in that area. Until, you know, they send some US Marshals down.

                          Considering that Parish Sheriffs are civil positions, and most do not have law enforcement agencies (That would be the Parish Criminal Sheriff, if they even have one), why is the Sheriff dictating anything? He has papers to serve and a jail to run, not laws to enforce.

                            I think I see a trend here

                            An off-duty security guard accused of pointing a loaded handgun at two women who didn’t buy he was a Boston police officer kept up his charade even as the real cops were arresting him.
                            Adam Nieves, 26, of South Boston, who is lawfully licensed to carry a firearm for his employer, Capital Protection and Security, allegedly approached the women, ages 23 and 33, on St. Casimir Street in Southie early Tuesday night and asked them, “What’s going on?”
                            When the ladies appeared unreceptive, Nieves allegedly began twirling a pair of handcuffs, told them he was a Boston police officer, drew a loaded semiautomatic Glock from a holster and aimed it at them.


                            The victims, who had been conversing with four male family members, fled and called the real police, but Nieves apparently stayed in character.
                            “(Nieves) stated to the officers that he was a Boston police officer,” said Jake Wark, spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley. “The officers didn’t believe him and handcuffed him for their own safety, as well as the safety of others in the area.”
                            Capital Protection and Security said Nieves does have a gun permit for working armed job sites, but did not work Tuesday.
                            Nieves pleaded not guilty yesterday in the South Boston Division of Boston Municipal Court to two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, impersonating a police officer and violating a restriction of his license to carry.
                            Prosecutors sought $5,000 cash bail, but Judge Ernest L. Sarason Jr. set bail at $1,500 cash and ordered Nieves to stay away from the victims.
                            THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS FOUR MINUTES
                            THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND?

                              I thought it was only Orleans Parish that has split Criminal and Civil Sheriffs, because that parish is the only "City/parish consolidated Government" in Lousiana. When I looked into moving to Lousiana years back I met a Deputy Sheriff in New Orleans , and he told me NO is the only place in the state that does that, that the other Parishes have normal elected Sheriffs. This was back in '96 though.
