Corrections Officer Knocked Out In Wisconsin Jail
The Marathon County Sheriff's Department released footage of 20-year old prisoner Frederick Morris knocking out corrections officer Julie Christensen with a single punch on March 27 shortly after lunch at the Marathon County Jail. Morris also struck another corrections officer in the face and can be seen running around while other prisoners reportedly shouted "Hope she dies".
Christensen had to go to an intensive care unit for her injuries, and Morris is charged with two counts of battery by a prisoner and one charge of aggravated battery. The video was released to a civilian review panel which was looking for ways to improve the jail's conditions.

New Orleans Parade Shooting - Surveillance Footage
Gunmen opened fire on dozens of people marching in a Mother's Day second-line parade in New Orleans on Sunday, wounding at least 17 people, police said.
Police spokeswoman Remi Braden said in an email that many of the 17 victims were grazed and most of the wounds weren't life-threatening. No deaths were reported.
In one of the raw videos, an eye witness (second video) describes how some gunmen missed the person they were shooting at.
Officers were interspersed with the marchers, which is routine for such events. As many as 400 people joined in the procession that stretched for about 3 blocks, though only half that many were in the immediate vicinity of the shooting, Serpas said.
Police saw three suspects running from the scene in the city's 7th Ward neighborhood. No arrests had been made as of late afternoon.
Second-line parades are loose processions in which people dance down the street, often following behind a brass band. They can be impromptu or planned and are sometimes described as moving block parties.
A social club called The Original Big 7 organized Sunday's event. The group was founded in 1996 at the Saint Bernard housing projects, according to its MySpace page.
The neighborhood where the shooting happened was a mix of low-income and middle-class row houses, some boarded up. As of last year, the neighborhood's population was about 60 percent of its pre-Hurricane Katrina level.
Police vowed to make swift arrests. Serpas said it wasn't clear if particular people in the second line were targeted, or if the shots were fired in a random fashion.
"We'll get them. We have good resources in this neighborhood," Serpas said.
In the late afternoon, the scene was taped off and police had placed bullet casing markers in at least 10 spots.

Shootout Between Miami Police And Growhouse Suspect
New home surveillance video of a shootout between Miami-Dade Police and a man at a suspected grow house has been released.
The video was shown by a prosecutor in court Thursday in the case against Luis Estevanell, who is facing drug possession, drug trafficking and felony murder.
The surveillance video was captured by a camera at the suspected grow house last summer. The video shows the owner of the alleged grow house, Gerard Delgado, get into his BMW vehicle just moments before detectives and an FBI agent arrive at the home to investigate the growing of marijuana.
Upon arrival, they come across, Estevanell. As they are talking to him, Delgado exits his vehicle and opens fire on the officers. The shootout ensues for a while. Officers can be seen taking cover and firing back.
Delgado was fatally shot in the head.
Miami-Dade Police Detective John Saavedra was shot three times in the stomach. He has not been able to return to the police force since.
Detectives found about 80 pounds of marijuana worth tens of thousands of dollars.
Officials said the reason Estevanell is being charged with felony murder, even though he didn't pull the trigger, is because in the State of Florida if you commit a crime that results in the death of somebody, they can also charge you with the felony murder.
