  • Video: Pattern of excessive force?

    Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Paul “Scotte” Pfeifer has been hailed as a hero cop. The 14-year veteran has won numerous awards in his career, including the department’s highest honor – the Sheriff’s Gold Medal of Valor – for helping save a baby from a three-day hostage situation on Arden Way. He also has been accused in court of using excessive force at least three times since 2009, each time over his use of a flashlight as a weapon, and captured on video in two separate incidents beating a suspect with a long, metal flashlight. Video of one of those incidents began circulating in December. The Sacramento Bee in September 2015 obtained exclusive video of the second incident – shot from the dashboard cameras of two patrol cars.

    Former Assessor Kathleen Kelleher and former Assistant Assessor John Solie received significantly lower valuations than neighboring property owners during the recessionary housing crash.
