On April 7th the City of Mesa Police Department was called for a minor altercation with my boyfriend. I had taken his cell phone and thrown it, although it was unbroken. When the police were called, they arrested me (falsely) for criminal damage. Only thing wrong with that charge was that THE PHONE WAS NEVER BROKEN. AND WAS NEVER CHECKED.

They took me to jail (I guess to protect other cell phones throughout the county!)

I was in shock, therefore very agreeable with the officer. I never resisted arrest or caused any trouble.
It was obvious to me that D. Hurley, the arresting officer liked to torment and taunt me. After going through the metal detector and after I was patted down I was placed in a holding cell. I have suffered from manic depression my entire life, and just until recently the meds were working. Three months I have been struggling with different meds to help me get back to my normal self. It has been quite a struggle and this can be proven my my medical records. When I asked to see a doctor or taken to the psych ward they all laughed like it was a joke. Because I asked that I was put in a PADDED CELL, NO WINDOWS NO LIGHT. Well I am claustrophobic and felt a panic attack arising. I couldnt stay in a padded cell when I did nothing wrong and they were planning on keeping me overnight. I felt in my heart that if I had to remain in that cell, would surely need serious psychological attention. While praying to Jesus for a way out, I felt He was telling me to reach in my pocket, where I had found two house keys that I forgot were there.

My 16 yr old son had no idea where I was for 5 hours and I was never offered a call.

I had to do what I had to do to survive in there. I knew Jesus led me to my shorts pocket, but I didnt understand why. Then it occurred to me to take the two keys and key myself, until my entire body was filled with welts. Well I had asked him for medical help and they refused before. When they found they had f*cked up the job and missed the keys in my pocket they went ballistic. Funny thing is I never knew they were there! An officer, which I believe was officer Hurley pushed my chest and I fell back into the restraint chair.(I ended up going to the Urgent care on Easter Sunday and they found soft tissue damage to my neck.) The police stood around me and asked me how I snuck the keys inside. I told them the truth, I had no idea they were there and then I told him that the problem was they didnt do their security job every well. THEY WERE OUTRAGED. I was verbally abused by Officer Hurley and threatened me with child protective services and taking my son away from me. He insisted to the sargeant to keep me in custody when releasing me from jail to the hospital. The sargeant on that night was the only one that realized how I was being treated. He released me to Mesa General Hospital where I got to talk with a therapist. Few minutes later Officer Hurley comes in the emergency room yelling things at me. (geeze people were in there that were very sick)

He then told the therapist he is taking me back to jail...scare tactic. Then he lied to her again and said that I told him I wont show up for the court date. LIE LIE LIE A court date was the least of my problems now. He said they lowered the charges to misdemeanor, of course to avoid a false arrest charge against them. I signed the paper and he started walking out of the hospital yelling LIAR LIAR (can we say power trip?)
I had a concert to go to on the 11th and when I returned at 2:30 am on the morning of the 12th Officer Hurley was parked in front of my house to scare me. He just sat there in the patrol car and didnt say or do anything. CAN WE SAY STALKING?

I need real help from a lawyer on this , yet I am finding it difficult to find one. Its a case of false arrest, harrassment, threats and stalking in my book.

If anyone can help I would be so thankful. I am very fearful and keep checking to see if all the doors and windows are locked etc and that no one is parked in front of my home. I am a 53 yr old widow with a 16 yr old. I asked Hurley if he thought I was Al Capone or something the way I was treated. TOTAL ABUSE OF POWER AND OVERKILL.

If you sad no to the officer about him searching your car, he would have to get a search warrent.  What he did was just wrong and I would defintley file a report against him.  I've heard bad things about Mesa PD and Chandler PD, the corruption needs to stop.

I too was a victim of Officer Hurley.

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I was pulled over a few nights ago just as I was pulling into my driveway and was harassed by Officer Hurley.

I am not claiming to be perfect, I understand these guys deal with the scum of the earth and it cant be fun. I myself have a bit of a record but nothing in about 4 years and I have shed alot of blood, sweat, and tears to get to where I am today. I have been stopped a few times in the last 6 months in mesa and the officer is usually understanding and they usually realize real quick they arent dealing with the same person I was 4 years ago.

Officer hurley on the other hand disrespected me like I have never been in my life. The first thing out of his mouth to me was " whats a white boy from utah doing with 3 dots tatooed on his hand?" I laughed a little and said you know thats a part of my past I am not proud of. But what does 3 dots mean to you that you would say that to me? He said well its gang related. I am not a gang member nor have I ever been. I was wearing wranglers and cowboy boots!!!!! So it proceeded to go downhill from there i was accussed of being on meth and I refused to let him search my truck because he didnt have any reason to... BUt he did it anyway. I was also legally carrying a firearm which he tried to keep when he left. This went on for at least an hour in my driveway where all my neighbors could see and hear what was going on. So I am in the process of deciding what to do with this.

I feel your pain and something needs to change!!!!!!!!

S.O.P. But Mesa adds some lies and exaggerations...

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Mesa P.D. has to meet its quota, and they are NOT interested in your problems, explanations, or any form of the truth that doesn't lead to
an arrest situation which fulfills the quota of these demented crud.

ANY domestic violence, no matter what started it or what actually happens, is a wonderful opportunity for these bozo crooks to make
themselves look important, and create the fraudulent illusion these lowlifes are doing their jobs. SOOOO someone has to go to jail.
Now, just in case you think the unbroken cell phone has something to do with it, it doesn't.

Nor does any more sane definition
of "violence" that isn't what these jerks and the equally insane city management and chiefs decide is practical for them to create their
false front, pretending they are protecting someone other than the tiny minority of full time professional criminals they actually
work for, that is, Charles Luster, his associates, his depraved flunkies, and other local parasites. So you have to go to jail, etc., etc., etc. Otherwise, they might have to deal with meth dealers, crack peddlers, car thieves, burglars and others who--EGAD!--might
fight or cause trouble to these sniveling cowards.

Indeed, read what happened to Mario Madrigal and about a half dozen others in the last 3-4 years. You are lucky to be alive! They L:IKE to murder
people! Even--heck!--ESPECIALLY women, children, anyone who isn't armed or resisting seriously.

See how honest and clear it really is when you understand you are dealing with criminals and pathological liars, on a police force about
3 times the size required in any kind of rational community?

Once you grasp the criteria, you'll understand they are right in their world, not you. You don't count at all. It's Mesa, and it's Maricopa County.

You expected honesty, fairness, or rational treatment? You're in the WAY WRONG place.
