TONIGHT, AND I TEAM INVESTIGATION INTO THE CONTROVERSY ALL THE REST OF THE YOUTH HOCKEY COACH. OFFICERS TASED HIM SEVERAL TIMES . NOW, SIX MONTHS LATER, A PARENT WHO WAS THERE AND SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE POLICE IS FACING CRIMINAL CHARGES. CHIEF INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER HAS THE EXCLUSIVE STORY. REPORTER: CHRIS ALBANO WAS RECORDING A SALEM NEW HAMPSHIRE POLICE TASTE AND ARRESTED YOUTH HOCKEY COACH. THAT WAS IN DECEMBER. IN MAY, POLICE HAD CHRIS TAKEN OFF THE PLANE AT LOGAN AIRPORT, AND ARRESTED. LARRY FOGELMAN IS A TOP CIVIL RIGHTS LAWYER . IT SURE LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE TRYING TO INTIMIDATE WITNESSES. REPORTER: CHRIS WAS ONE OF SEVERAL PARENTS WHO SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE POLICE AND — IN AND I TEAM REPORT. TELLING US THAT THE COACH DID NOTHING WRONG . HE WASN’T GOING ANYWHERE. THERE WAS FOR COPS ON HIM. AND HE WASN’T FIGHTING BACK OR ANYTHING. THERE WAS NO REASON FOR THAT. IT FELT LIKE IF YOU OPENED YOUR MOUTH, THEY’RE GOING TO ARREST YOU TOO. REPORTER: THE COACH WAS THE ONLY ONE ARRESTED IN THE INCIDENT. UNTIL NOW. JUST WEEKS AFTER OUR REPORT AIRED, OFFICER SEAN WILKIN SAID, CHRIS ASSAULTED HIM THAT SAME NIGHT. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT BEFORE. AND CERTAINLY IN MY EXPERIENCE, WHICH RUNS FOR FOUR DECADES, IT WAS DETERMINED THAT AN ARREST WAS WARRANTED, THE ARREST SHOULD HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN DECEMBER. NOT SIX MONTHS AFTER THE FACT, AS WE ARE SEEING HERE. THIS IS BEYOND THE PALE FOR WHAT IS APPROPRIATE AND PROFESSIONAL POLICE CONDUCT . IT IS NOT LIKE A NEW EVIDENCE IS COMING FORWARD. THE POLICE WERE THERE AT THE SCENE. SO, IT IS VERY SUSPECT. REPORTER: THAT I TEAM EXPLAINED — ACQUIRED A COPY OF THE POLICE REPORT. IN IT, HE SAYS, THE SITUATION WAS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS FOR THE THREE OFFICERS ON THE FLOOR. HE GOES ON TO SAY, I WAS THE ONLY OFFICER TRYING TO CONTROL THE CROWD. I REMOVED MY FLASHLIGHT FROM ITS HOLDER AND TURNED IT ON STROBE. I DID THIS SO THAT IF PEOPLE WERE UNABLE TO VIDEO, THEN MAYBE THEY WOULD LISTEN TO MY COMMANDS. BUT, HE MAKES NO MENTION OF BEING ASSAULTED. OFFICER WILSON ALLEGES CHRIS HIT HIS HAND WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO PREVENT WITNESSES FROM VIDEOTAPING THE COACHES ARREST . IF HE WAS TRYING TO PREVENT THE TAPING OF THE INCIDENT, THEN THAT IS ALL HE WAS TRYING TO DO, THAT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL . I DID NOT SEE ANYTHING THAT APPROACHED A DISORDERLY PERSON, OR CERTAINLY NOT AN ASSAULT AND BATTERY ON A POLICE OFFICER. THERE ARE SITUATIONS WHEN POLICE OFFICERS ARE INS — ASSAULTED AND BEATEN IN. AND TO DIMINISH IT AND TRIVIALIZE IT LIKE THIS, I THINK UNDERMINES SITUATIONS WHEN POLICE OFFICERS ARE LEGITIMATELY ASSAULTED. REPORTER: THE I TEAM LEARNED JUST LAST WEEK, POLICE CHARGED ANOTHER MAN WHO WAS AT THE RINK WITH DISORDERLY CONDUCT . WHAT DO YOU THINK THE MOTIVATION IS NOW BEHIND CHARGING ALL THESE WITNESSES? INTIMIDATION. THEY SAY TO ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE THAT WERE THERE, DON’T YOU SUPPORT THIS GUY. BECAUSE, IF YOU DO, YOU ARE GOING TO GET LOCKED UP ALSO. REPORTER: IN SALEM, THE POLICE AND THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND THE SALEM TOWN MANAGER SAY THEY ARE UNABLE TO COMMENT ON OPEN CASES.

    https://boston.cbslocal.com/2019/02/18/i-team-salem-nh-police-officers-criminal-investigation-fbi-hockey-coach-arrest/

    BOSTON (CBS) – After an I-Team exclusive that raised questions about two controversial arrests by the Salem, NH Police, sources say the FBI opened an investigation and the NH Attorney General’s Office said its Civil Rights Division was reviewing one of the arrests as well.

    Now the NH AG’s office says it has widened its review of the department, telling town officials that Deputy Chief Robert Morin, Captain Michael Wagner and Sergeant Michael Verocchi are under criminal investigation.

    The probe comes just months after the release of a town audit that specifically mentioned the WBZ I-Team on the controversial arrest of a youth hockey coach and a witness who was critical of the police.

    The WBZ I-Team exclusively reported the incident at the hockey rink in December, 2017. Witnesses say police were called to the ICenter in Salem, NH after a contentious youth hockey game.

    Coach Bob Andersen told WBZ he was acting as a peacekeeper, standing between two bickering parents, when police arrived and pushed him to the ground and tased him several times. Chris Albano was recording the incident on his iPhone.

    Nearly six months after the incident Chris [Albano] was arrested for assaulting a police officer that same night. A Salem police officer said after watching WBZ news report he recognized and remembered Chris hit his hand.

    At the same time, the town commissioned an independent audit of the department. A redacted version released a few months ago found the department violated its own policies and has a negative culture that discourages citizens from coming forward with complaints.
    The audit recommends a complete overhaul of the internal affairs process.

    The town manager told the I-Team the officers are on paid administrative leave. The NH Attorney General told us the investigation is active and ongoing.

    Bob Andersen’s attorney, Michael Delaney said, “We have maintained from the beginning that the Salem police used excessive force on Mr. Andersen when they stun-gunned him multiple times. He has been subjected to malicious prosecution. We are pleased that the public integrity unit of the Attorney General’s office and the FBI are now formally investigating certain Salem police department officials.”

    This is why, no matter how large or small the police force, there must be a psychological screening before the person is even trained in police work – small towns are particularly vulnerable to choosing officers with power issues (bullied in school, narcissism, sociopathy and Gods only know what other potential sources) who invariably think a badge is their carte blanche ticket to do as they like to anyone. Hiring such a person is the equivalent of giving a murderer a license to kill & a get out of jail free card. It would be nice if our military did that as well, because it is amazing how many mass killings (and serial killers) have been directly enabled thanks to the military training the killer received from the government – problem is, the military prefers people who kill first and think later… if they bother thinking at all.

    This is okay according to them. But wait till you listen to the news when one of them dies in the line of duty. They shut down freeways they have police escorts family comes out and wants more money for support. Did you know that cop insurance is really really good? You also know that when one of your family members dies they don't shut down roads , you don't get a police escort. And if you're in a line of cars cop can literally pull you over and give you a ticket for having a parade type action. Start showing all the real BS that these cops do instead of pumping them up on all the good stuff they do or don't do.

    This kind of activity by jackboot police departments has the potential to have people proactively defending themselves from such unjust actions. This will make police less safe, not more! And everyone knows that a strong and uncorrupt police force is vitally important. Police have to be trained to understand this! And when things like this happen, and it is quite often in America, it should be punished punitively!

    I think it actually undermines the cases of assault between citizens. Physical contact is assault. If another person slapped my hand in public it’s assault. You can’t put your hands in someone. Doesn’t matter if it’s an officer or not. He slapped the officers hand…and it’s assault by definition. They should have brought the charge sooner.

    I tell you if the dude slapped my hand he’d be missing some teeth.
