Apache Junction, Arizona - Sergeant Robert "Woody" Haywood is a well-know thug of the Apache Junction Police Department. In the course of investigating and reporting the Pizza Hut scandal and Betty Carter's family, it was Woody Haywood that threatened Rip-Off Report volunteers with a lawsuit for slander. He was very aggressive and appeared violent. We have him on tape threatening BADbusinessbureau.com.
We want it well-documented that we have had aggressive contact with this officer and we believe he is capable of murder. We also want to go on record as saying that we believe there will also be recrimination from either Haywood or some of his confederates for taking this position.
We also know that the parents of the late Ali Altug are trying to hold this officer and the Apache Junction Police Department liable for their son's death and we want them to know that we are solidly behind them.
There are a couple of other connections that we want to draw here, and hopefully this will be helpful to attorneys in the prosecution of this and other lawsuits. First, as we mentioned, we believe that there was a corrupt connection between the Carters and the Apache Junction Police Department.
There are several witnesses that have filed affidavits that Betty Carter claimed that a connection existed with them and that she was "protected." That was why it was requested that Apache Junction Police Department not investigate Pizza Hut drug charges.
One witness even noted that some of Betty's thugs would kill for her at no charge. It would be interesting to know whether or not this witness could identify any of these "thugs" as Apache Junction Police Officers. Given what we know about Woody's hot head, we believe that he would be a cold-hearted sort that could take a life without much concern.
This brings us to yet another Rip-off Report concerning corruption in the Mesa Police Department. Commander Clore of the Mesa Police Department is a good friend of Sergeant Haywood and it is noted that Clore has been in trouble a number of times, but these incidents have been "swept under the carpet." We believe that things have a way of heating up when people so out-of-control get pinned in a corner. This sort eventually self-destruct, but unfortunately not before destroying many others along the way.
Just as a side note, in the "murder" of Ali Altug, the statement of Ali's father has never varied. However, Woody Haywood's various statements, which were coached by attorney each time, have absolutely no resemblance to each other. Haywood also violated established police procedures for de-fuzing suicide attempts, ignoring his own rule of not entering the "blood circle," then claimed that Ali lunged at him with a knife. Ali's father called 911 and the tapes prove that his father was concerned that Ali might try to hurt himself. Haywood should have known what he was going into.
Additionally, according to Ali's father, it was less than 30 seconds between the time that Haywood arrived, burst through the gate, (a good distance from the front door), barged through the front door, found his way to the kitchen unescorted, and fired three rounds into the torso of the teenage youth. Also, according to Ali's father, at no time did Ali ever stop sawing at his own arm with the bread knife. There was no threat to Haywood. It should also be noted that the 911 tape corroborates the version Ali's father told authorities and refutes many points offered by Haywood. It is a good bet that Haywood is lying.
The trial is forthcoming, and we hope that justice will be done. However, it is doubtful. Ali's civil rights were violated "under color of law." We therefore stridently urge the FBI to investigate this matter. The Arizona DPS has already investigated, and counsel has requested the investigation be reopened. That decision is pending. We need the Feds in the East Valley to clean up local law enforcement.
