Doug Lewis Nevada Bounty Hunter with Justin Brothers Bail Bonds

Five misdemeanor charges have been filed against a Carson City bounty hunter in regards to his actions in South Lake Tahoe.

Douglas Lewis with Justin Brothers Bail Bonds has been charged with unlawful arrest, aggravated trespass, vandalism, battery and damaging a vehicle.

The incident occurred in October at the South Lake Tahoe home of Ty Robben. Robben wanted felony charges filed against the suspect. He said the bounty hunters broke down his door and used a Taser on him.

Robben has since filed a civil suit against the Carson City firm and has protested the Justin Brothers with the large crime scene tape. “Protesting will continue against the Justin Bros for the duration” Robben said.

It was the delay in action that led Robben in January to protest near the South Lake Tahoe Police Department.

Tahoe Tribune story on Ty Robben

Tahoe Tribune

The El Dorado District Attorney’s Office has filed charges against a bail bondsman for an October incident that spurred a protest against the South Lake Tahoe Police Department.

On Thursday, Assistant District Attorney Hans Uthe filed five misdemeanor counts against bail bondsmen Douglas Lewis for an October incident in the Sierra Tract neighborhood in which bounty hunters allegedly entered the home of Todd “Ty” Robben in an attempt to bring him into custody on a Nevada warrant.

The counts against Lewis include unlawful arrest, aggravated trespass, vandalism, battery and damaging a vehicle, according to court documents.

A man who answered the phone at Justin Brothers Bail Bonds Tuesday morning declined to say how Lewis could be reached. The man said there is no comment on the charges before hanging up.

During the October incident, bondsmen from the company entered the Pinter Avenue home of Robben and shocked him with a Taser in an attempt to take him into custody, according to Robben’s account of the incident.

Robben contends the bondsmen did not have a legal warrant for the search.

The pace of the investigation into the incident led Robben to organize a protest against the police department along Al Tahoe Boulevard in January

Tasers are consider lethal weapons and they kill people. Similar taser lawsuits address the seriousness of taser use.

Taser safety issues

Critics argue that Tasers and other high-voltage stun devices can cause cardiac arrhythmia in susceptible subjects, possibly leading to heart attack or death in minutes by ventricular fibrillation, which leads to cardiac arrest and—if not treated immediately—to sudden death. People susceptible to this outcome are sometimes healthy and unaware of their susceptibility.

Ban-the-TasersAlthough the medical conditions or use of illegal drugs among some of the casualties may have been the proximate cause of death, the electric shock of the Taser can significantly heighten such risk for subjects in an at-risk category.[1]

“Non-lethal” designation

While they are not technically considered lethal, some authorities and non-governmental organizations question both the degree of safety presented by the weapon and the ethical implications of using a weapon that some, such as sections of Amnesty International, allege is inhumane. As a consequence, Amnesty International Canada and other civil liberties organizations have argued that a moratorium should be placed on Taser use until research can determine a way for them to be safely used.[7] Amnesty International has documented over 334 deaths that occurred after the use of tasers. Amnesty International. Police sources question whether the taser was the actual cause of death in those cases, as many of the deaths occurred in people with serious medical conditions and/or severe drug intoxication, often to the point of excited delirium.

CBC News Tests Tasers – Proves Tasers Unsafe!

Tasers No Longer a Non-Lethal Alternative for Law Enforcement

acluBy Rebecca McCray, ACLU Criminal Law Reform Project & Emma Andersson, Criminal Law Reform Project at 3:39pm

Tasers subject their victims to a 50,000 volt shock followed by 100 microsecond pulses of 1,200 volts.   Since 2001, more than 500 people in the United States have died after law enforcement officers used this weapon against them. A study published this week by the American Heart Association’s Circulation Journal confirms that the misuse of a Taser can cause sudden cardiac arrest and death.taser-x26-large

In theory, a Taser is intended to serve as a non-lethal method of control for law enforcement officers when they need to physically restrain a dangerous person. But as the new Circulation study demonstrates, Tasers cannot so simply be categorized as “non-lethal.” In addition, there are far too many instances in which officers have impulsively deployed Tasers against children, pregnant women and the mentally ill, even though the victims posed no real danger to either the officers or anyone else.

The new evidence that Tasers can cause cardiac arrest and death, coupled with the disturbing trend of officers using Tasers in flagrantly unnecessary situations, makes it all the more troubling that states do not uniformly or consistently govern or regulate officers’ use of Tasers. This means that Taser policies vary greatly between police departments, often leading to vague, outdated and inaccurate guidelines that result in misunderstanding about the misuse of these allegedly non-lethal weapons.

Taser training materials are mostly provided by Taser International, the private company that makes the weapon. Relying on a private, for-profit company that has a vested interest in promoting and selling their product for training guidelines is not only nonsensical, but dangerous. For example, though Taser International advises officers against administering a shock to the victim’s chest, it does not prohibit targeting this area. In fact, Taser minimizes the potential risk of death or cardiac trauma, instead emphasizing a need to insulate police officers – and itself – from the legal ramifications associated with a shock to the chest. The company goes on to recommend against aiming for the chest because “shots to the chest, particularly at close range, are frequently ineffective because of the lack of major muscle groups in the chest area.” It’s not difficult to see why relying on Taser International’s profit-seeking and liability-evading advice, rather than on rigorous and objective scientific evidence, is both unwise and unsafe.tazer gun

The new Circulation study should provoke us all – including and most importantly law enforcement agencies – to revisit when the deployment of a Taser is worth its serious risks. To be sure, law enforcement officers have a legitimate interest in protecting themselves and the public during potentially violent encounters, and for the victim, a Taser is generally a less lethal alternative to a firearm. But history demonstrates that law enforcement agencies have failed to create and implement Taser training policies that effectively educate officers about the risks involved and ensure that officers only use Tasers when actually necessary. Law enforcement agencies should review and revise their Taser policies so that officers can make informed and responsible decisions about when using a Taser is warranted. Particularly given the increasing – and disturbing – popularity and indiscriminate use of Tasers, police departments around the country must ensure that they use these lethal weapons responsibly, ethically and as safely as possible.

Angela Jones, a Los Angeles woman, suffered cardiac arrest after being shocked with a Taser gun by police during a traffic stop in June. The incident, which was caught on video by a California Highway Patrol dashboard camera, has once again raised questions about the safety of the weapon.

CBC report on the latest example of senseless use of deadly force by police, compounded by the routine lie that the police had been attacked by the victim. Since we already know Robert had no drugs or alcohol in his system, how long will it be until he’s diagnosed as suffering from “excited delirium syndrome” – the phony disorder invented by the Taser lobby to deny the obvious fact Tasers often kill people.

Marin County has agreed to pay $1.9 million to settle a lawsuit filed by a man who accused sheriff’s deputies of shocking him with a Taser

Justin Brothers Bail BondslawsuitMarin County has agreed to pay $1.9 million to settle a lawsuit filed by a man who accused sheriff’s deputies of shocking him with a Taser when he refused to go to the hospital after he fell. The county Board of Supervisors voted in closed session Tuesday to approve the settlement to Peter McFarland, 66, for an incident that “was not consistent with department policy,” said County Counsel Patrick Faulkner. “Federal law surrounding the use of Tasers is more restrictive today than it was in 2009, when deputies used a Taser to help take Peter McFarland in custody,” Faulkner said.

ANTI Corruption protests coming to South Lake Tahoe Police Department?

So-Lake-Tahoe-badge150The South Lake Tahoe police have been dragging out an investigation related to this writer since October 2012.  It’s going on 4 months.  The investigation centers on Justin Brother bailbonds (Justin Bros.) illegally crossing state lines from Nevada to Lake Tahoe, California to kidnap an alleged “fugitive”…

The SLTP and Sargent Josh Adler have until Friday January 25, 2013 to get the report done before we bring our famous CRIME SCENE banner to the South Lake Tahoe police Dept for an ANTI Corruption protest.

The “Bounty Hunters” failed to obtain a mandated California warrant pursuant to CA penal code 847.5 witch states:

If a person has been admitted to bail in another state, escapes bail, and is present in this State, the bail bondsman or other person who is bail for such fugitive, may file with a magistrate in the county where the fugitive is present an affidavit stating the name and whereabouts of the fugitive, the offense with which the alleged fugitive was charged or of which he was convicted, the time and place of same, and the particulars in which the fugitive has violated the terms of his bail, and may request the issuance of a warrant for arrest of the fugitive, and the issuance, after hearing, of an order authorizing the affiant to return the fugitive to the jurisdiction from which he escaped bail.  The magistrate may require such additional evidence under oath as he deems necessary to decide the issue.  If he concludes that there is probable cause for believing that the person alleged to be a fugitive is such, he may issue a warrant for his arrest.  The magistrate shall notify the district attorney of such action and shall direct him to investigate the case and determine the facts of the matter.  When the fugitive is brought before him pursuant to the warrant, the magistrate shall set a time and place for hearing, and shall advise the fugitive of his right to counsel and to produce evidence at the hearing.  He may admit the fugitive to bail pending the hearing.  The district attorney shall appear at the hearing.  If, after hearing, the magistrate is satisfied from the evidence that the person is a fugitive he may issue an order authorizing affiant to return the fugitive to the jurisdiction from which he escaped bail.

A bondsman or other person who is bail for a fugitive admitted to bail in another state who takes the fugitive into custody, except pursuant to an order issued under this section, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
