Apparently their News Editor is Bart Simpson.
This is the same TV station that interviewed homeowner 'Mike Litoris' a few years back.
Really people!!! You've been duped by RK. His statement is also a joke, say the "fake producers" name slowly.
I'm about 99% sure that's been photoshopped, though it's certainly more fun to think an entire room full of news reporters clawing to keep their jobs in a shrinking industry were too oblivious to catch the prank.
OMG I hope David is joking!!
I love how they said the names were wrong despite the NTSB confirming them.
How the producer and the person typing up the graphics didn't question this is inexplicable. It is very much a Ron Burgundy moment. In fact, the new "Anchorman" movie should incorporate it.
Your dollars at work, thank you officers for protecting us by assaulting the citizens you are sworn to protect.
KTVU producer Mike Ock took full responsibility for the error.
I saw it too!
David, there was a fifth pilot on board as well: Yu Misty Joak
@David Yun, ha ha ha ha ha ha. I hope you're joking.
I think David works for KTVU.
Really, David? Really?
Ouch. HOW did they go for this???
i dont even get it...she pronounced it "Fook" not "f*ck" so what is the mistake...its the guy's name after all?

Shame on You for that ridiculous apology, and honestly What a bunch of Garbage! Who Cares why they were called to the house, or by whom! It's plain as day there were NO Exigent Circumstances requiring Police to breakdown the door. They Issued UNLAWFUL commands to these homeowners, and BURGLARIZED their home and ASSAULTED them when the Owners refused to comply with the commands. Police have no authority to come onto private property without a Warrant or Emergency/Exigent Circumstances. Neither of those conditions were met. These criminals with Badges should be in Federal Prison for civil rights violations.... since we know the Sheriff is too much of a Coward to charge them as they should be!
In a situation like this it is perfectly acceptable for the police to enter the residence; the phone call about the domestic disturbance provides exigent circumstances. The police acted under the suspicion of further potential harm to either the children or one of the spouses. They can't just take the word of the wife who is locked in a house with a man who may pose a threat to her and refuses to talk to the police. In a situation like this if the police were to leave without even talking face to face with the suspects and then the dispute led to a murder it would be a huge failure and the department would still be blamed for not stoping it.
The reality of policing is that the police can do what ever they want, warrant's do discourage police misconduct but they mainly serve to protect evidence which in this case is irrelevant. The police were responding to exigent circumstances, not seeking to search the house for evidence. The police know that they can't just bust down a door and search a house. By not complying the resident gave the police the lawful right to search the area incident to arrest.
Had the resident complied there would be little grounds for arrest, forced entry, or any search of the residence. That being said from what is visible in the video it doesn't appear that there was reason to tase the resident but as long as the officer can articulate his reasoning it's justifiable.
@leha, to get this straight is actually easy: if the police have suspicions about illegal activity, they obtain the warrant. This should have happened in Cleveland, and this should have happened in this case. However, the judge usually only issues the warrant when there's enough evidence for the entry. A single call is not nearly enough, i.e. in this case if the police followed the law, not only they wouldn't be able to enter without the warrant, but, assuming that the call was all they had, they wouldn't obtain the warrant as well - in which case they have to leave. In Cleveland, a single call wouldn't be enough either, but when the number of tips and suspicions accumulated, the warrant would be issued. This is how it's supposed to work in civilized society, and this is how it has been working for many decades in our country.
