DID BARTLETT POLICE VIOLATE THEIR JURISDICTION TO ENFORCE A DRUG HIT?





















































On Thursday morning at 1346 Standridge in North Memphis a van load of Bartlett police dressed in swat clothing and masks invaded the blue colored house killing 42 year old Malcolm Shaw.


According to eye witnesses Bartlett police who were out of their jurisdiction stormed the house armed with a SEARCH WARRANT. The witnesses state that officers attempted to use a large pick tool to open the steel door. When the door did not open a ram was used on the pick like object and the steel door opened. The eyewitnesses also state that there was no knock and announce just forceful entry and that all the officers in their swat gear went to the front door and no one to the back. The picture of the front window with the stuff animals is where Shaw was sleeping.


The eyewitnesses state that the Bartlett police at that point used the ram to force the locked wood door open. The witnesses go on to state that when the first officer went through the door the steel door closed shut again forcing the officers to again have to use the pick to open the door. during this short period of time eyewitnesses state that that hear gun fire and that by time the other officers entered the house Malcolm Shaw lay dead in his boxers.


Some local media sources reported that Shaw met the officers at the door with gun in hand, But that is totally untrue Malcolm Shaw was shot in his bedroom as the picture i took inside the bedroom proves as blood stains can be seen.


From the front door which Bartlett police entered to the bedroom is less then 10 feet and I do not believe that Shaw attempted to shoot the Bartlett policeman AKA Patrick Cici but that the officer entered the house to do just what he did kill Shaw and dropped a weapon on him.


It is my belief that the reason that Bartlett police did not notify Memphis police is because the death of Malcolm Shaw was a hit. Their is no doubt that at some point Shaw who family and friends state was living his life as a hermit in a house with no utilities and no vehicle surviving now off odd jobs and grass cutting had at some point sold drugs. But I believe that Shaw and Cici knew each other.


Patrick CiCi who according to Memphis Daily News records has 8 mortgages and lives in a $279,000 home in Germantown supported by his police salary once lived just 2.5 miles from the Standridge address. MLGW records show that in 2000 he had utility service at 3547 Orchi. Orchi street is known to be one of the dope tracks in the Hollywood section of North Memphis. Is it possible Shaw who had asked several elderly neighbors during the week of his death to pray for him had something on CiCi?
CiCi also has mortgages at his present home located at 8785 Gainsway in Germantown, 3020 Ruskin, 3965 Pikes Peak, 563 Herring, 4944 Bending Trail, 1100 Tatum, and 3587 Townes.


The search warrant which was left inside 1326 Standridge which I found on Friday morning shows that the warrant was obtained at 6:09 pm Wednesday evening and signed by Judicial Commissioner Rhonda Harris after being presented with information by a detective R.M. Christian. Legal minds that I have spoken with since this tragic event state that Harris should have questioned Christian about jurisdiction before signing off on the warrant,and that even though a Judicial Commissioner signed the warrant Bartlett police still did not have the right to be on Standridge street.


Lets look at the reasons that Harris and the Bartlett police violated jurisdictional protocol. Reading the Commercial Appeals website some sought to use Tennessee Criminal Code Title 40-6 to justify Bartlett being able to serve the warrant. The code reads "The magistrate issuing the warrant may empower any law enforcement officer to execute the warrant anywhere in the state". But what was not stated in the CA is that this section of the code is speaking on arrest warrants. A officer of the law has the right to arrest any criminal in the state that has an arrest warrant but does not have the power to search property unless in his jurisdiction unless that law enforcement person is one who has county wide jurisdiction such as the Sheriff's department, or state enforcement powers such as the TBI, Highway Patrol.or a federal agency.


There are other questions that also need to be answered such as how did Bartlett police obtain their probable cause? State law requires that to get a search warrant their must had be reason to believe that drugs where at the 1346 Standridge location within 5 days of the issuing of the warrant. So did Bartlett police set up surveillance of the house, or did they buy drugs at the house? either of which would have been a violation. Bartlett which is another city having its own charter and form of government would does not have the right to police within the city limits of Memphis.


Another question is what would Bartlett police have done with Shaw and the drugs if any had been found? With the crime taking place in Memphis they could not take him or the evidence to Bartlett. Another question is when did Shaw sell drugs in Bartlett and without a car how did he get there. And if Shaw was a big time drug dealer why was he living in a house with no MLGW and had to fancy car and rims


It is my belief that Patrick CiCi is a dirty cop and that it was his intent on Thursday to kill Malcolm Shaw. The mere fact that Shaw was seeking prayer gives me to believe that he was going to die. How is it that this Bartlett police officer can afford to pay 8 mortgages on his salary while his wife Gina is a stay at home mom? Is the real drug dealer Cici? In checking Gina Cici's SS# 415-47-XXXX it has also been used under the name of Vicki Valentine in Bradford Tennessee, just one of those things that make you go hmmmmm.


As for the gun, friends and neighbors state they have never seen Shaw with a gun, Is it possible that CiCi had a drop gun ready to make it appear as though Shaw came at him with a gun and how did the other officers allow themselves to get locked out? Now isn't that convenient?
The Justice Department needs to launch an investigation into this matter and seized the dispatcher's communication between the officers from the time they left Bartlett until the time they arrived on Standridge... Surely the dispatcher knew where they were going.

This is such a sad tragedy and it is so unfair. I personally was happy to see you on the scene because I knew that you would uncover all of the wrong doings.Thank You Derna Hickerson

You create most of the crap in your blog and present it as fact. You also act like Shaw was the Citizen of the Year, which obviously he wasn't. Then "friends and neighbors state they have never seen Shaw with a gun" is another bunch of crap since he has a conviction record of weapon possession. You write this fiction and your fellow jabroneys lap it up like you have any credibility. No wonder Memphis has sunk to the level it is today. You spooks are turning it into another East St. Louis.

WHERE IS THE NAACP?

A few decades ago the local NAACP would jump into something like the Malcolm Shaw murder case and bring all kind of consequences to bear on illegal law enforcement agency activities. The black community was always comforted by the presence and the swift action of the NAACP.

But now the local NAACP, led by Aunt Jemima Johnnie Turner, is for all practical purposes the National Association for the Advancement of Cowardly Pussycats. The local NAACP is now irrelevant and worthless.

And that speaks to the main problem that the black community faces with outlaw law enforcement agencies like the Bartlett Police Department and the Memphis Police Department. There is simply no organization left to challenge their illegal and unconstitutional activities.

The Criminal Justice System in Memphis and Shelby County is a disgrace. Rhonda Harris had no business giving the Bartlett Police Department permission to search a house inside the city limits of Memphis. She has blood on her hands in this case just as have the cops that killed Malcolm Shaw.

Law enforcement agencies and the criminal justice system in Memphis and Shelby County have spun out of control into suspicious and illegal law enforcement behavior. Larry Godwin is responsible for much of this, as he has the mayor, A.C. Wharton, and the impotent Memphis City Council in his back pocket.

And where is the polecat district attorney Bill Gibbons when illegal law enforcement activities are so obvious? Does he condone the murder of Malcolm Shaw? Does he condone Larry Godwin's cops entering a homeowner's residence on fake 9-1-1 calls and then even arresting the household dog for barking too loud?

This should not be happening in the early days of the 21st Century.
We have traveled back in time to an era in Memphis and Shelby County when the police could use his weapon to pick off a black man like a rabbit with impunity.

A.C. Wharton and the City Council should speak up against illegal law enforcement agency activities and the crooked criminal justice system. To do nothing is to risk turning this community into the quagmire of chaos.

According to the Commercial Appeal, Cici and his wife sold the house at 3020 Ruskin Rd. in November of last year for $101,000 - a profit of $32,000 over the price paid in Feb. 2008.

"The mere fact that Shaw was seeking prayer gives me to believe that he was going to die."



So anyone who asks for another to pray for them is because they know they're going to die?

This has got to be the most stupid, retarded statement of the year.

Come one now.

NO DRUGS WERE FOUND IN THE HOUSE AT ALL

Well RT Koenig,

He bought the house for $69,000, took out a mortgage for $78,400, resold it for $101,000. Deduct a 5% realty commission, his closing costs and the $4000 in closing cost concessions he gave the buyer and his net was, more like $12,550

Thad one of the reasons Forbes Magazine reported that Memphis one of the worst Cities to live in was because of our corrupt politicians. Here is one story that the local media will not report on: "HLN CABLE NEWS IS REPORTING THAT THE GUN USED IN THE PENTAGON SUBWAY SHOOTING CAME FROM THE MEMPHIS POLICE DEPARTMENT. IT WAS A GUN THAT HAD BEEN CONFISCATED BY THE MEMPHIS POLICE DEPARTMENT. THE MEMPHIS POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS A POLICY OF SELLING CONFISCATED GUNS TO GUN DEALERS. SO THE MEMPHIS CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT IS HELPING TO ARM THE CRIMINALS. ONCE AGAIN THE CITY OF MEMPHIS IS BEING HIGHLIGHTED FOR SOMETHING NEGATIVE. WE AS CITIZENS OF MEMPHIS NEED TO ASK OURSELVES WHERE ARE THE CRIMINALS GETTING ALL OF THESE GUNS THAT ARE USED TO COMMIT A CRIME. THE CITIZENS OF MEMPHIS AND THE SURROUNDING CITIES NEED TO BE OUTRAGED. GUN CRIMES ARE BEING COMMITTED IN MEMPHIS, BARTLETT, ARLINGTON, AND THE OTHER SURROUNDING CITIES. I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A PERSON OWNING A GUN, BUT I DO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY BEING IN THE GUN SELLING BUSINESS."

I wish all police could cross their jurisdiction to get rid of any crime. Good Job Bartlett.

As with any of the other Thaddy Bear investigations, this one will go nowhere.

Matthews, first of all, these "facts" you proclaim as truth are typical of the BS you try to pass off as truth on many of your other "stories". Second, drugs were absolutely found in Shaw's house because he was nothing more than a low life drug dealer and has been for years. Third, officers of the BPD have Shelby County Commissions that allow them to enforce state law anywhere in Shelby County, TN.

"DID BARTLETT POLICE VIOLATE THEIR JURISDICTION TO ENFORCE A DRUG HIT?"

No. Read the 1st line of the warrant. It states:

TO THE SHERIFF, ANY CONSTABLE OR ANY PEACE OFFICER OF SAID COUNTY.

If I recall correctly, Bartlett, TN is in Shelby County.

If you legally want to kill a "NIGGA", all you have to do is put on a police uniform. Look at the young boy in West Memphis, Ark. He was doing anything wrong. It is not illigal to walk around with a toy gun. The young boy had just left the store after buying something. Look at the police shootings in other states where one man was shot because of a cell phone. We need to train our children that if you commit a crime you will become part of the new slave trade. You become chattel for the private prison corporations. The reason that so many of our people is failing in society is that they do not know their history. All they hear is that they are going to failing schools. All our kids see is that when other Blacks make it, they don't do anything to address the needs for the people who have helped to make them. Take Tyler Perry for instance. Black church folk help to make him. One way he could give back to those who helped make him is by opening one grocery store in a Black neighborhood that sold fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.

"GUNS USED IN PENTAGON, LAS VEGAS SHOOTINGS SOLD BY CITY, COUNTY"
These guns wound up in the hands of two men who legally barred from possessing them - one a convicted felon, the other mentally ill. I wonder how many more of these guns that the Memphis Police department wound up in the hands of criminals.

I don't think there is much point in arguing with Mr. Matthews and his fans. He feeds off of the ignorant people of Memphis who unfortunately follow him like blind sheep and most of them do not have the ability or knowledge to research the facts themselves. Fortunately, the smarter, more educated people of Memphis and surrounding areas do not feed into his lies and conspiracy theories. Thankfully most of the decision-making people still fit into the latter category.

Matthews is not a liar, he just doesn't know any better.

IT'S A SHAME HOW THEY MURDERED THAT YOUNG MAN.

There is no organization because we depend on the NAACP to do what we as a community should be doing ourselves.Not one person, but all people.I wonder if this were to happen to our brother,son or dad,would we be so quick to say good job bartlett.no, because we would swear how good of a person he was.we would say he may have done bad things but it didnt make him a bad person.To anonymous who said that drugs were found on him,were you there to find them or someone told someone that told another one that told you?They may have had jurisdiction but not to execute anyone that way.how do we truly know whether he did or did not have a weapon or drugs?because the police say so.what would they say?I think the ignorant people of memphis are the ones who think they know more than everyone.The thing is if you do research the so-called facts,what you would probably find would be that they are smarter than a 5th grader.they knew somebody would do research. they have already covered the true facts while you are getting ready to research them.it is not about education.it is about common sense.the so-called lies and conspiracy theories should make us think outside of what someone is telling us so that we are able through common sense to determine what is a lie.the bottom line here is wherever the wrong lie in this situation,GOD will deal with it accordingly.
