Jerry L. Steering, is a Police Misconduct Attorney who sues police officers in Palm Springs, Indio, Cathedral City and otherwise throughout the Coachella Valley area, and otherwise Riverside County, the Inland Empire and otherwise throughout Southern California.
Palm Springs Police officers are acutely aware of what they can and cannot get away with, and they all know that they can beat, falsely arrest, maliciously prosecute and even kill civilians, and get away with it. Notwithstanding Palm Springs’ fairly liberal reputation, even the Palm Springs City Council cannot control the Palm Springs Police Department.
Palm Springs Police Department police officers routinely beat-up, falsely arrest and maliciously prosecute their victims for bogus “resistance offenses” such as violation of Cal. Penal Code Sections 148(a)(1) (resisting / obstructing / delaying peace officer), 69 (resisting or deterring peace officer with threat or actual violence), 241(c) (assault on peace officer) and 243(b) (battery on peace officer).
To make things worse, Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin has created a new Crimes Against Peace Officers Unit. The role of that Unit is to falsely and maliciously prosecute the innocent victims of police misconduct, to prevent / preclude those innocents from suing the police. It is shameful.
JERRY L. STEERING HAS SUED POLICE OFFICERS IN THE COACHELLA VALLEY.
Mr. Steering has represented many bogus criminal “resistance offense” cases (i.e. Cal. Penal Code Sections 148(a)(1) (resisting arrest) and 243(b) (battery on a peace officer) in the Coachella Valley since the mid-1980s.
Mr. Steering has also been suing the police in the Coachella Valley since the 1980s. His most notorious cases are Edward Moore et al. v. City of Desert Hot Springs, et al, and Andrea Heath v. City of Desert Hot Springs, et al., Ryan Risk et al. v. Cathedral City et al..
During the 2000s Desert Hot Springs Police Department was basically a crazed gang of murderous cops. They had two factions at DHSPD; the “lettuce eaters” and “meat eaters”.
The “lettuce eaters” were those DHSPD officers who refused to use force as a first resort. The “meat eaters” were those DHSPD officers who used and enjoyed to use crippling source as a first resort.
The leader of the “meat eaters”, Lt. David Henderson, used to go out on his patrol shift with two cans of pepper-spray, because one can would not be enough for one of his duty shifts. Lt. David Henderson even essentially murdered a man named Michael Sanchez while on-duty. Mr. Sanchez was in a pursuit with Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Sheriffs, and the Sheriffs Deputies claim that Sanchez shot at them.
The Sheriff’s Department had already captured Michael Sanchez and had him on the ground, so when David Henderson got to the scene
The other leader of the “meat eaters”, Sgt. Anthony Sclafani, ended up going to prison for torturing prisoners at the Desert Hot Springs Police Department Jail.
The Andrea Heath case handled by Jerry L. Steering involved DHSPD Detective Andrea Heath suffering incredible retaliation for telling the FBI and a federal Grand Jury how bad DHSPD really was treating the public. DHSPD retaliated so badly against Det. Heath ended-up committing suicide.
Local District Attorney’s are simply not competent to criminally prosecute the police and will use any excuse and will find any justification for an Officer-Involved-Shooting. If you don’t believe this, then just take a gander at the ever growing list of bad-police-shootings that have been found to have been justified by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office in the past few years (See, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office’s Press Releases). None of the 963 fatal police shootings of civilians in 2017 ended-up with the prosecution of those officers who unjustifiably killed a civilian.
