Couple caught on video engaging in “sexual activity” with a dog named Demon, police say

SUFFOLK

A couple engaged in “sexual activity” on camera with a dog , according to court documents.

Richard Allen Patterson, 46, of the 2400 block of Freeman Mill Road was suspected of illegally having guns in his house, which led a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent to watch video on a computer seized from Patterson’s house, the documents said.

The ATF agent saw Patterson and his wife with the Doberman pinscher in their master bedroom, a Suffolk detective wrote in a search warrant affidavit. The agent alerted Suffolk police.

Richard and Christina Patterson own the property where the agent seized the computer, according to public records. Neither has been charged .

Suffolk Detective Sgt. Gary Myrick filed the search warrant to see the video during his investigation into “crimes against nature.” State law forbids someone from carnally knowing “in any manner any brute animal,” or submitting to such acts.

Doing either is a felony punishable by one to five years in prison.

Suffolk police are looking into what happened but won’t talk about their investigation, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said in an email.

Patterson, a felon, has been indicted with having 17 firearms – including handguns, shotguns and military-style rifles – that he had shipped over state lines, according to federal court documents. He also had 52 shotgun shells, 44 rounds of .40-caliber bullets and 10 rounds of .357 ammunition, federal prosecutor William Jackson said in the indictment.

In June, Patterson was convicted of three felonies: forging public records, perjury in Department of Motor Vehicle matters and larceny. He was sentenced to six years in prison, but a judge suspended all of it.

Video Captures University Of Chicago Police Officer Shooting Student Near Campus!

Warning: Video contains graphic content and language. Video provided by the University of Chicago shows the shooting of a 21-year-old student by a campus police officer on April 3, 2018, in the Hyde Park neighborhood. The video was edited by the university to obscure certain visual details.

A University of Chicago police officer shot and seriously wounded a 21-year-old student who charged an officer with a metal pipe near the South Side campus late Tuesday, authorities said.

Body camera footage showing the shooting, which happened off campus just before 10:15 p.m. in the Hyde Park neighborhood, was released by the school on Wednesday night.

Three U. of C. police officers responding to a call of a burglary in the 5300 block of South Kimbark Avenue encountered a man — later identified as a student — breaking car and apartment windows with a long metal pipe, university officials said in an email to students.

The officers ordered the student to drop the pipe, but he refused and charged at the officer in an alley, university President Robert Zimmer and Provost Daniel Diermeier said in the email.

One of the officers fired his weapon, hitting the student in the shoulder, according to the university. The student was initially taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious condition, authorities said.

The video shows, at one point before the shooting, the officer stepping back. The officer was executing a “tactical retreat,” a practice he learned during crisis intervention training, the university said. The approach is intended to create a safe distance for the officer to call out commands rather than immediately subdue the subject.

The university also confirmed the officer, who has been on the force for two years, fired once, which is consistent with his training to shoot to end the threat. The officer involved has had 40 hours of crisis intervention training and eight hours of mental health first aid training.

In the video, an officer can be heard saying, “Twenty-one, mental. He’s a mental.”

The university was not commenting on the mental state of the student who was shot.

The area where the shooting happened is patrolled by both U. of C. and Chicago policeofficers.

After learning the injured man was a student, U. of C. police contacted his parents, the university said. It is the first shooting involving a U. of C. police officer in the agency’s 40-year history, said university spokeswoman Marielle Sainvilus.

“This is a difficult incident for our community, and our concern is with all of the individuals involved and their families,” Zimmer and Diermeier said in the email issued by the university. “Maintaining our community’s safety, security and well-being is of paramount importance. Support services and resources for students will be provided by the college and Campus and Student Life.”

The officer involved was placed on mandatory administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, in accordance with department policy.

Chicago police are investigating the incident, said Anthony Guglielmi, chief spokesman for the Chicago Police Department. CPD is in charge of investigating campus police shootings.

The University Department of Safety and Security, which oversees the campus police department, is also reviewing the shooting, according to the university.

With a force of about 100 officers, the U. of C. police serve as the primary law enforcement agency on campus and, beyond the university’s borders, offer backup patrol to Chicago police in an area bounded by 37th Street, 64th Street, Lake Shore Drive and Cottage Grove Avenue, according to the university. That off-campus patrol agreement was cemented in city ordinance back in 2011, city records show.

State law grants campus police officers on private universities the same arrest powers as city and state law enforcement officers. Campus police officers are required to complete mandatory state training, including firearms training.

Exorcists in training as Vatican tackles rising cases of the ‘demon and possession’

The Vatican is holding a training course for exorcists from around the world to help the Roman Catholic Church cope with the growing numbers of people who claim to be possessed, Church officials say.

A conference held in April at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome will focus on anthropological, social, theological, liturgical, pastoral, and medical aspects of “exorcism and the prayer of liberation.”

It is aimed especially at providing support for bishops who train priests to become exorcists.

Cardinal Angelo Amato, the Vatican Prefect for the Congregation of the causes of saints, will open proceedings with a lecture on fighting Satan.

The number of Italians approaching exorcists has tripled recently to half a million people, according to Vatican News.

Father Cesare Truqui, a priest who learned to cast out demons from Italy’s most famous exorcist, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, told the Vatican Insider that “in the popular mind, the exorcist is a sort of good wizard who deals with the devil.”

He acknowledged that many who turn to exorcists in reality have “problems of the family, of losing work, even girls with problems of the heart” while others suffer from “spiritual deviation.”

“Even among Catholics there is a lot of superstition,” he said. “I have been asked for help by a girl who requested a long-distance exorcism of her ex-boyfriend who left her. In such cases one tries to give human understanding.”

True possession by demons is not common, he says, cautioning nevertheless that “the devil is always lying in ambush.”

“Nowhere is immune, not even the Vatican. Satan arrives wherever there are human beings.”

Brother Benigno Palilla, a Sicilian exorcist, also blames superstition for the surge.

“The number of people ready to make use of wizards, sorcerers, people reading cards and the tarot has increased,” he told Vatican News. “That leads to the demon and to possession.”

Last month Brother Palilla organized a grassroots training course for Sicilian exorcists who learned about Satanist sects and heard “stories of liberation” from the exorcised.

“A self-taught exorcist certainly will make mistakes. He needs a period of apprenticeship,” he said.

“The possessed are the existential backwater of which Pope Francis talks. They are people who suffer a lot and, unfortunately, are not inserted in the Church registry office,” Brother Palilla said.

Fr. Truqui says the course in Rome next month is timely because the struggle against the Devil has reached “a crucial stage of history.”

“Many Christians no longer believe in the existence of the malign one, few exorcists are appointed. There are no longer young priests willing to learn the doctrine and the practice of the liberation of souls.”

Critics warn that exorcisms can be a form of “spiritual abuse” and counsel extreme caution using them.

The Church of England says medical professionals must be consulted where appropriate.

Anne Richards, the Church of England’s national adviser on such issues told the Guardian: “Exorcism in a technical sense is incredibly rare. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a case that’s been authorised.”
