Update: Two former Omaha police officers accused of criminal wrongdoing made their first appearances on Tuesday. A Douglas County Judge set bail for James Kinsella at $5,000, meaning the ex-officer must post $500 – or 10 percent – to be released from jail.
Kinsella turned himself in at the jail at 7:45 a.m. on a felony charge of evidence tampering and misdemeanor obstruction and theft. He is accused of throwing away a memory card containing video of the arrest of the Johnson brothers near 33rd and Seward Streets.
