A Organized Crime Unit officer has told me that when the unit stormed a Whitehaven resident on Wednesday that within minutes they knew they did not have the person that they were looking for by looking at the photo of the person they were looking at and by looking at the woman who they had laying on the floor in her underwear, but was told by police director Larry Godwin to ransack the home.

On Wednesday morning OCU acquired a search warrant for Arlene Bell a female Black born 5/27/ 1959 and Tarik Thompson born 9/23/1972. The location that the search warrant was to be served was 5392 Lastrada Cove . The warrant was being issued for the the purpose of locating marijuana,drug paraphernalia,drug records and drug proceeds.

At approximately 12:55 on Wednesday Canecia Moore who along with her husband Michael, and 13 year old daughter have lived at 5392 Lastrada since March of 2009 was in her bedroom on the phone with cousin when she heard a loud noise. At first Mrs. Moore thought the noise was coming from one of her neighbor's homes,so she stood still to listen. The nest sounds confirmed that someone was breaking into her home.

Canecia Moore yelled out in hopes that whomever was breaking in would turn around and leave once they heard her scream. That did not stop the assailants from continuing to enter the house,she quickly told her cousin who was still on the phone to "dial 911 someone is breaking in". Before she could lock the bedroom door it was being kicked in by someone. That person according to Canecia was a Black male approximately 5'4 with a large black rifle with a scope aiming the weapon at her head yelling for her to "Get on the ground". Another male was yelling "Police".

As the other officers entered the bedroom with weapons drawn pointing them at the now very scared woman she stood in plain view of the male officers with only her underwear on. Canecia states that there were at least 10 officers in the house wearing black bullet proof jackets,Black helmets, and black shirts. She also states that there were two female officers present as well.

At this point in the raid she is asked her name, she states "Canecia Moore" after this she is pushed to the hardwood floor face down. 'What is this all about" she asked as she was being pressed against the floor with her hands tightly handcuffed behind her, still with just her underwear on being refused by officers to be allowed to either cover herself or put on pants.

Canecia states that she was left on the floor while the officers stood over her telling her that she was going to jail. The Black male officer who had pointed the rifle at her attempted to help her to her feet as her hands are still handcuffed behind her back. she says that he states "This is a hefty one, I need some help". A white female officer described to have dark shoulder length hair enters the room and says "I'm not going to hurt my back helping her up". Another male officer enters the already crowed room and helps the rifleman lift her from the floor. Again Moore states that she asked for her pants was male officers were in the room gawking at her and again she was refused.

Moore states that at this point the two female officers one White and one Black stayed behind as the male officers moved to the hallway still with the door wide open to do a body search. Moore's panties were pulled down so the female officers could look for drugs. Before degrading the woman further her hands were released but she was told not to move or reach for anything.

Moore is allowed at this point to put her pants on but still with the door wide open the Black female officer lifts her t-shirt and tells her to undo her bra so she could check for weapons. At this time Det B. Nemec whose IBM number is 6268 enters the room while her bare breasts are exposed and in the male officer's plain view. At this point Moore states that she was handcuffed again with her hands behind her back even though she's being cooperative. The black female officer throws Moore's tennis shoes at her feet,Moore ask for her slide in shoes since being handcuffed she wouldn't be able to put the tennis shoes on. Moore states that the White officer says " Plus they match her shirt" The Black female officer says at this point "You don't have to match when you're going to jail".

Again Moore ask what was going on where Det. Nemec continue to reply "You know whats going on". At this point Moore was moved from her bedroom still handcuffed to her den and told to sit at a kitchen chair, This is where the interrogation began by Nemec. "Who is Arlene Bell" Moore responded "I don't know" He then ask "You don't know Chuckie?" Moore's response was the same as when she was asked about Arlene Bell. Moore who is a LPN and employed by Correct Care Solutions, where she works as a nurse at the Penal Farm was asked for personal information such as date of birth,the occupants of the house, and numerous other questions. She was asked these questions by several officers several different ways.

The officers went through bank statements, they even checked the utility bill laying on the counter which shows that MLGW services are in the name of her husband Michael Moore. Det Nemec continues to ask "Where are the drugs" Moore states that she told him "There are no drugs and what are you talking about?". Moore states that at this point Nemec tells her " If you don't tell me who sells drugs out of this house and where they are,I will have your damn job and take your ass to Jail East" He goes on to state " You have had your chance to tell me what I want to know,since you didn't if I find once of marijuana or anything else, Im going to charge your ass and you are going to prison" The White female officer at this point says " Don't lie to him" where Moore replies " I didn't lie". Nemec then states according to Moore " Well you had your chance to tell the truth, now we will look for it my way,and your ass will be stuck to clean up and repair the damn mess".

The White female officer goes into Moore's purse after the Black female officer takes and goes through Moore's medications and pulls out her ID. Moore states the female officer seems surprised when she tells her birth date saying I thought you were older. You see Arlene Bell is 50 years old while Canecia Moore is 30.

The OCU officer that contacted me states that they knew when they saw Mrs. Moore that she was not Arlene Bell but that Nemec was determined to find something, Even though the officers knew that the woman's civil rights were being violated they continued their terrorist actions. The OCU officers tells me that prior to wrecking and ransacking the home Larry Godwin was contacted and told that Canecia moore was not the right person but according to the officer was told to "Ransack the house".

After coming up empty handed and looking defeated Moore states that Det Nemec asked for her husband's cell phone number and calls him in her presence telling Mr. Moore 'That we have found the stash now tell us where the rest of the drugs are" Michael Moore tells them that there are no drugs and that he does not know Arlene bell or Tarik Thompson. The fact that Nemec called Mr Moore can be easily proven nemec cell phone number of 672-3969 is still in Mr Moore's cell phone.

Canecia Moore tells the officers that they didn't have to break in her home that they could have knocked and she would have let them in. Nemec now tells someone to "get the video camera and start recording". After having her state her name and giving her a copy of the search warrant which is blank on one side she is uncuffed and the White female officer tells her "it was a pleasure meeting you".

This is an example why it is time for new leadership at the MPD even though Godwin is set to leave the department in April of next year he needs to go now because it seems as though he allows abuse of citizens without fear of being fired by his coward boss A.c. Wharton. The Organized crime Unit violated their own handbook policy of getting an elected judge to sign the search warrant, instead they used a Judical Commissioner. Surely on Wednesday morning they could have gotten and elected judge who knows the law to sign the warrant if the affidavit was proper, and what about the law that states that in order to get a search warrant a criminal act must have taken place at the residents or by the persons within the previous 5 days?.

To prove that OCU who has extensisve intelligence equipment did not properly do there job I found Tarik Thompson in my data base within 15 minutes. I found that Thompson's ss# is 414-21-XXXX and that no records support his ever living at 5392 Lastrada. If OCU had check 1411 they would have found out that he has a phone listed in his name (785-6905) and that the address is 3509 Hicky St. in South Memphis. I called the resident and a woman stated that he was not home. She asked me was I looking for Junior or Senior and who was I. Pretending to be an employer I told her I was looking for the one who was born 9/23/1972, telling her that was the info on a job application. She stated he was not home, even though when i called back from another number changing my voice she called out to him and told me he was sleep.

If OCU had done there job they would have found that since March of last year MLGW has power at the address in the name of Michael Moore,and not Arlene bell or Tarik Thompson. They would have also found out that Arlene bell did at one time live at the address but has now lived there for several years.
Checking my data base I found that Bell whose SS# 410-11-XXXX has a maiden name of Baker and a husband named Reginald. Checking would have also shown that a Sherry BAKER Thompson once also lived at the address, Hmmm I wonder if Sherry is any relations to Tarik Thompson? So the question becomes Why did OCU hit this house and what does the affidavit state that gave them their so called probable cause to act like terrorist from a hostile country?

After hearing my discussion on this matter on my radio show on Friday City Councilwoman Janis Fullilove gave Gerald Thornton who is a attorney for the MPD a call Fullilove states that Thornton told her that they were looking for Canecia Moore's husband. This has to be an attempt to cover OCU's tracks seeing that Canecia's husband is named Michael and warrant states they are looking for a Black male named Tarik. The search warrant states that Tarik Thompson is 5'5 165 lbs, and Michael Moore is 6'2 245 lbs. If Thornton is telling the truth why didnt the warrant state the name of Michael Moore?

OCU screwed up and did not do the diligence needed to make sure that they had the right location to serve the search warrant and now is making an attempt to cover up for their screw up seems as though Bartlett police took their training from MPD.

Why should anyone be surprised by any of the outlaw actions of MPD Director Larry Chico Godwin, who thinks he is above the law and can get away with any crime committed by the boys in blue?

And it has gotten much worse since A.C. Wharton took over as mayor-in-name only. The tail Godwin is wagging the dog Wharton.

The City of Memphis is going to have to deal with more civil lawsuits as long as Chico remains out of control. Yes, Chico should leave now, but with the city's shoe planted firmly in his crooked ass.

It is time to bring Chico Godwin to his knees.

"corrupt, dirty, infested with dumb asses"

Yeppers, very reflective of Memphis politicians and about 75% of the population.

The OCU assault on Canecia Moore by Larry Godwin's OCU thugs is an outrage and must not go unanswered. Once again, where is the local NAACP headed by Aunt Jemima Johnnie Turner? Where is that fake militant, Dwight Montgomnery? Local civil rights leaders must move into action on this case and see that justice is done.

Even Bruce Bruce Myron Lowery and the City Council should investigate. We know we can't expect any action from Mayor A.C. Wharton, who is always shivering like a little girl on a cold day.

Mrs. Moore should go into federal court with a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the City of Memphis, Mayor Wharton, the MPD, Larry Godwin, and all others responsible for this outrage.

Only when these civil lawsuits threaten to bankrupt the city will justice be done.

Sounds to me like that OCU guy is trying to cover his own ass by blaming this mess on Godwin. I find it hard to believe Godwin was contacted over this piddly little search warrant. I smell bullshit all over this one.

Put in a call to Javier Bailey as he is the only flake that would handle this case.

8:10AM baby believe me if I could sit on Lucifer Godwin....if I just had 1 minute I would sit on him & suffocate the stupid stew out of that sorry SUCKER. Just 1 minute I would put him in a headlock until he feel the wrath of all his wrongs. And still that ain't enough! W/ that jet black dye in his funky head! Looking like the young & the restless victor newman reject!

This happens a lot in OCU. All the veteran officers have been moved out and Rookies are traing Rookies. Check the warrants. These OCU officers get the warrant signed and then go to a different address. Then they just write the correct adress in once at the location. THIS IS ALL A VIOLATION. Mrs. Moore sue them tricks.

Can the MPD do anything right? They terrorize the law abiding citizens while crime runs rampant throughout the entire city, the MPD beats up hand cuffed trannies on camera, the MPD drive their squad cars all over town like maniacs. No wonder the MPD isn't on the tv show The First 48 anymore, they don't want to be filmed on camera as they break into innocent people's homes and terrorize folks. Get a good lawyer!

Mr. Matthews may need to check his facts because the information given out over the air waves are incorrect. Arlene Bell never had any search warrant against her better yet the search warrant was for an address not a person. If someone did there homework they would have seen that she (Arlene Bell) has not been at this address in over three years so why would there be a search warrant for someone away from the property for so long. This just does not add up. The next time you decide to put someone on blast CHECK YOUR FACTS..

You folks are scared to death or law and order. Face it, the police are in a real with the low grade of citizenry in these parts. What you see is what you have, just look at the wanted thug list seen in the Commercial Appeal each week.

Lots of griping about runaway crime by posters to this thread. Just who do they think is committing these runaway crimes? You that are gripping, I suggest, clean up your own group's acts and we will see crime diminish in this city by 80%.

Otherwise let the police alone, you can't expect 100% perfection when your group is committing 80% of the criminal acts. Arrest records prove the point.

The one thing everyone understands is money. When the city of Memphis has to pay out millions of dollars for lawsuits brought forth by their own citizens, then they'll get the message.

I believe this story. A similar incidend happened to me about a month after I'd moved into my home. I was absolutely terrified and when I called MPD to find out what was happening, they straight up lied. I then made a report to the TBI and the FBI about what happened.

All I want to know is this...

Do you still want to lower the standards on the Police Exam?

...Godwin should be held responsible sure, he is the head man in charge, but he is just one man...

was the officer so dumb as to not stand up for what is right? calling Godwin by cell phone during a raid...pfft...this officer should lose his job anyways if he followed through on an order when it was obviously incorrect...


and don't hire your officers with only a diploma from MCS and a degree from Shelby State Tech University...

The Criminal Justice System in Memphis and Shelby Couunty is ridiculous. In addition to the OCU clowning and not knowing what the hell is going on, we now have convicted murderers being released by incompetent jailers who do not know their asses from a hole in the ground.

Dearick Stokes had just been recaptured a month earlier after he took a rest room break during the last day of his criminal trial and just walked out of 201 Poplar Avenue.

Now he is gone again: this time through some kind of "computer error" the stupid jailers escorted this convicted murderer through the doors of 201 Poplar Avenue to freedom.

And it took the idiots running 201 Poplar Avenue several days to realize that Dearick Stokes was gone--again. This time they may never recapture him.

So it goes at Clown City, 201 Poplar Avenue, where so many of the officials, including the judges, are just downright stupid.

At the ridiculous CJC, run by Mark Luttrell---what you see is what you get: the laughing stock of the nation. Joe Ford might be dumb. But even he could manage a jail better than Luttrell and apparently manage the county better than Luttrell.

Joe Ford has just become the frontrunner in the race for permanent Shelby County mayor. The embrace of Mark Lutrell for mayor is over.

Thad it is time for the Attorney General Eric Holder to take a look at the Memphis Police department. Blacks and poor Whites civil rights
have been violated for years and nothing is being done about it. Now Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson is in a uproar because the State of Arizona want to arrest illigal aliens. We in the Black community have our own problems. Everybody wants to use the civil rights struggle of Blacks to advance their own agenda. If you are in this country illegaly then you have broken the law. When a Black or a White person breaks the law he or she has to face the legal consequences of their actions. Mexicans were rioting in Arizona, throwing full water bottles and rocks at the police and the police let them get away with it. If that had of been Blacks or Whites doing that, they would have called out the riot squad. That young child in West Memphis got shot and killed because he had a toy gun.

Bunch of BS. An officer would never call the director to inform him of anything. There is a thing called the chain of command. Hahaha! Can you imagine? "Hey Director, this is officer So and So. I know you are very busy but we're working a warrant and I have a question. Got a minute?" What a bunch of nonsense. Your inside source is full of it.

Anonymous said...

"Your inside source is full of it."

There was a dual source for this post as displayed by the undisciplined ignoramus that goes by the name, Thaddeus Matthews.

The initial source to Thaddeus Matthews was an anonymous poster that knew what juices Matthews enjoys. Matthews let his imagination add a little porn and a few fairy tales to the story, then posted it without checking into it whatsoever nor proof reading what he had keyed. You will never find this story going anywhere with the exception of possibly finding that Javier Bailey files suit for a million or so provided he is allowed into the court house.

Lawbreaker Chico Godwin stated on the news this evening that his rogue OCU did not hit the wrong house when it dehumanized Canecia Moore, an innocent victim of OCU thugs. He also stated that he had been informed by the FBI that the FBI would be investigating the murder of Malcolm Shaw by Bartlett Nazi Storm Troopers and that the MPD would cooperate with the investigation.

Meanwhile, there still has been no comment coming from Mayor A.C. Wharton on this matter or any other issue of significance. Wharton is too busy protecting pets of white citizens.

But even Bruce Bruce Myron Lowery is beginning to at least talk about some of these issues. Wanda Halbert is voicing her concern. And Barbara Swearengen Ware is still crying MURDER MOST FOUL in the Malcolm Shaw murder case.

And then there is the Dearick Stokes scandal. Something funny has happened. Dearick was too recognizable to be released so easily.

Mark Luttrell should resign. And he should take Chico with him.

Isn't it Memphis that is over quota in second rate, ridiculous citizens like you who would even want, black or white, someone that is such a failure in life as mayor of a city that unfortunately is inhabited by mostly uneducated, non English people that really need someone with a record of achievement to lead them into the promised land their preachers are always talking about.

It's understandable that so many of the posters here dislike Larry Godwin as he is the guy that has put at least one of the relatives of those who can't take care of themselves or their family behind bars. Good folks say, Larry get those bunnies under control.

Any time you have Halbert, Barbara SH and Thaddeus crying over the same thing you know it is BS. All 3 are nothing more than drama queens singing the same note over and over because they are singing to the same ignorant folks that elected them or listen to their rants. Used to be they might have had some credence but this endless and stupid battle against Godwin - which never amounts to anything but baseless and unproven accusations - has gotten old.

In regard to the FBI investigation of the Malcolm Shaw murder, a poster on The Commercial Appeal website identifying himself as "Kenny" had this one statement: "Looks like the work of Thaddeus Matthews."

And it is the work of Thaddeus Matthews, the only individual who dares to challenge crooks in high places.

Bill Gibbons, Larry Godwin, and the Barlett mayor as well as All Cool Wharton are in an obvious conspiracy to cover up the facts in the Malcolm Shaw case.

It simply did not make sense for the Bartlett Police Department to send rogue cops out of their jurisdiction and attack a Memphis citizen as if he were head of the Mexican Drug Cartel.

The Bill Gibbons investigation of the murder was a sham.

The Bartlett Police Department investigation of the murder was a sham.

Larry Godwin's investigation of the murder was a sham.

Truthfully, these three entities never investigated a damn thing. And now they are engaged in a massive cover-up to hide their lawlessness.

Patrick Cici should be tried for the murder of Malcolm Shaw. Bill Gibbons should resign as district attorney. And Larry Godwin, the biggest crook of all, should get out of law enforcement before he ends up on the wrong side of prison bars.

Because of the courage of Thaddeus Matthews, other black public officials are beginning to speak out against injustices against black people. Even local NAACP Aunt Jemima Johnnie Turner might finally rip the handkerchief off her ugly head and cry "Enough is Enough!"

But then that would be a miracle.

Wow, why would the director give a flying f**k over a search warrant for a dope "boy"? Only way I could see that, was if he was trying to "bang" some female involved in the case! I'm sure he talks to low level flunkies on a regular basis, year right! I'm sure he feels that it is even beneath him to be forced to talk to janet fulladrugs and that bugged eyed retard halbert!

First, no way in the world that Godwin was contacted during the serving of this warrant.

Second, I really feel sorry for the officers that had to see that beast in her panties. Nasty thing was probably wearing a thong, thinking that she is a BBW.

When will a petition get started against OCU. They have been doing shaddy business in Memphis for to long. Just look at all their impound lots. They can open up a new Mall of Memphis just from seized items along or do Godwin let his flock get first pick on the goods...
