  1. Here are the 11 reports of police misconduct tracked for Thursday, April 24, 2014:

    • Tampa, Florida: A police detective [Detective Eric Houston] was fired amid a federal grand jury investigation into potential criminal conduct, the police chief said. “It’s clear that [the officer’s] alleged criminal behavior is so egregious that it’s necessary to take this step immediately,” she said. “His actions do not represent the good men and women of this organization, and he does not deserve to wear the uniform of the Tampa Police Department.”
    • Rains County, Texas: The sheriff’s deputy [Deputy Jerrod Dooley] who shot a dog [Candy, owner Cole Middleton] after responding to a burglary call has been fired.
    • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Two plainclothes police officers [anonymous] shot an innocent man [Philippe Holland] who was delivering pizzas. The police commissioner has said that it was a tragic mistake. “They feel terrible,” he said. “It’s just unfortunate all around, and we’re just praying that this young man is able to fully recover.”
    • Houston, Texas: A former police officer [Officer Marcos E. Carrion] has been charged with helping distribute cocaine when he was on the force. Federal prosecutors announced arresting the officer, who recently resigned.
    • Reading, Pennsylvania: A police officer [Officer Jodi Royer] is accused of stealing money that was being held as evidence in criminal cases. He faces numerous theft charges for stealing money from the evidence room that he was assigned to protect.
    • Marion, South Carolina: The Department of Justice announced that a federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging two now-former police officers [Officer Eric Walters, Officer Franklin Brown] with using unreasonable force against a female citizen.
    • Nogales, Arizona: A deputy [Sergeant Cristobal Velasco] has been fired after an allegation of domestic violence surfaced against him.
    • New Miami, Ohio: The village council voted 5-1 to fire the police chief [Police Chief Kenneth Cheek]. The council found that he used excessive force on a suspect who was in custody, and that he didn’t investigate one of his officers when he was using excessive force in that same incident.
    • San Diego, California: Federal court records suggest former and current police leadership [former Chief William Lansdowne, Executive Assistant Chief David Ramirez] may have covered for a corrupt cop.
    • Los Angeles County, California: Two now-former sheriff’s deputies [Deputy Julio Cesar Martinez, Deputy Anthony Manuel Paez] have been charged with conspiracy, perjury, and altering evidence in connection with planting guns inside a medical marijuana dispensary to justify two arrests.
    • Eunice, Louisiana: Two police officers [Officer Jade Weaver, Officer Tayla Fruge] accused of not helping another officer in a fight were booked into jail on counts of malfeasance in office.
