Cops Receive no Jail Time for Stealing Memory Card

A Nebraska cop who chased a man into his home after he had video recorded cops arresting his brother, confiscating his camera and later admitting to throwing the memory card away, received a year of probation this week after his charge was reduced from a felony to misdemeanors, proving once again that the system will always side with the cops, even in cases like this one where the prosecutor talks a big game.

James Kinsella was part of a mob of cops from the Omaha Police Department who chased a man inside his home without a warrant last year after the man attempted to video record them abusing his brother, a scene that was captured on a camera by a neighbor from an upstairs window in a shocking video that went viral.

But what took place inside the home was even more egregious, according to Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine, who called a press conference last year to announce he was charging Kinsella with felony tampering with evidence – a rare move by any prosecutor when it comes to cop deleting footage.

However, Klein later reduced the charge to two misdemeanor counts of obstruction of government operations because the cop claimed there was no video on the memory card.

Klein also dropped charges against another cop he had charged last year, Aaron Von Behren, a sergeant who was facing two misdemeanors, accessory to a felony and obstruction of government operations, for orchestrating the coverup by ordering his officers to keep hush about the disposal of the memory card – which they claim contained no video evidence anyway.

Uh huh.

Why would he knowingly commit a felony if there was nothing incriminating on the phone that he and other officers illegally searched through?

Prosecutors dismissed charges Monday against a former Omaha police sergeant accused of orchestrating the stories of officers involved in last year’s controversial arrests of three Omaha brothers.
Aaron Von Behren had instructed his team to not discuss one officer’s theft of a memory card from the phone of Demetrious Johnson, who had attempted to film police as they rushed into the Johnsons’ home, authorities say.
Von Behren — who did not contest his termination by Chief Todd Schmaderer — had been accused of being an accessory to a felony and of obstructing governmental operations, both misdemeanors.
