* Two Manheim Township parents were arrested after they allowed their teenage children to host several parties that involved underage drinking and drug use over the past year, according to criminal complaints filed by Manheim Township police. Police were called to the home of Andrew A. Makrides, 48, and Lisa D. Makrides, 52, at least 20 times in recent months due to suspected underage drinking and noise complaints, according to the court documents. From the LNP story on November 9, 2020, “Manheim Township parents arrested after hosting underage drinking parties during pandemic: police,” (click here). These two, Andrew and Lisa Makrides pictured above, are finally scheduled to have their preliminary hearings tomorrow at 2:00 pm before District Judge David P. Miller. Stay tuned…
A couple of quick notes today:
— The picture of Jacob Bingham below is from the Lancaster Police Facebook page when he was sworn in as an officer on June 30, 2015 (click here).
— As noted, this is the third federal lawsuit naming Officer Jacob Bingham. The other two are below and both of these have settled. I will put in Right-to-Know requests to see how much the city paid.
— This is America. People don’t disappear off the streets and citizens have rights. Because you might not be as “polite” as possible, does not mean the police have the right to tase you in the back and punch you. Do you think they would do this to someone who lives in School Lane Hills?
Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
** In addition to the factual allegations there are also 11 Monell Claims in the lawsuit. Monell claims involve the training and supervision of the officers. Ivan Ruiz-Rivera is requesting no less than $350,000 plus attorney’s fees, costs, expenses and interest.
He is represented by attorney James E. Lee of The Lee Firm LLC in Philadelphia.
I would also point out paragraph #27 again:
* The “Factual Allegations” of the Federal Lawsuit filed on May 6th is below. Please note that I believe paragraph #36 was inserted in error from a different lawsuit as it deals with the Philadelphia Police Department. There will be more later today.
