• When Police Abuse Is 'Normal'

    A new documentary on militarized police focuses on mundane, everyday, "legitimate" abuses.

    Jesse Walker
    Oct. 3, 2016

    I haven't seen the new documentary Do Not Resist, but Radley Balko's review at The Washington Post makes it sound like a must-watch. According to Balko, the movie avoids the sort of footage that usually dominates discussions of abusive policing: You don't see anyone killed, you don't see anyone beaten, you don't see a SWAT team storming the wrong address. "What makes this movie so powerful," he writes, "is its terrifying portrayal of the mundanities of modern policing."

    It's one thing to read about a "dynamic entry" drug raid in which the police mistakenly or intentionally kill someone, or in which someone mistakenly or intentionally kills a police officer. It's awful and tragic and unnecessary. "Do Not Resist" doesn't show one of those. It instead shows the sort of drug raid that's far more common. The movie depicts the raid from the beginning, as the officers from the Richland County Sheriff's Department tactical team are meeting to discuss strategy. Some are wearing T-shirts with the tactical team's logo. It's a human skull imposed over two crossed AR-15s.

    There are no children at the residence, the lead officer assures his colleagues. (There were.) There would be a significant quantity of illegal drugs at the house, another says. (There weren't.) The tactical team then proceeds to raid the home of a black family in Richland County. Most officers storm the front door with their guns while one shatters some side windows as a distraction. Minutes go by. The officers' body language eventually shows signs of frustration as their search for contraband continues to come up empty. Finally, someone finds a book bag with traces of marijuana at the bottom—not enough to smoke, much less sell. They arrest a young black man with long braids for possession....

    [The arrestee] runs a landscaping company to help pay for his education. The man later tells the officer that he was on his way to pick up some lawnmowers that morning. Knowing that he's about to be arrested, he asks the officer if he could tell his employee that he was arrested and won't be able to pick up the lawnmowers. He then gives the officer $876 in cash and asks it to give it to his employee to go pick up the mowers, along with a weed-eater.

    Instead, the officer confiscates the money under civil asset forfeiture laws.
    The rest of the review is here, and a trailer is below:

      so, MR 'anti-federalist" have you figured out what a "Federation" is yet?

      or are you in league with those who do not care what that is?

      That quote can be applied to politicians as well. And Ron remained in the belly of the beast to try to change it. And he was not a bad cop.

      No, it really can't.

      A politician is under no compunction to write or enact bad or unjust law, or any law at all for that matter.

      Ron was a hero in Congress precisely because he said no and did not enact bad law.

      A cop's job is to enforce the law.

      All of it.

      And a great deal of "the law" is unjust, wicked or cruel, as Higgs rightly notes.

      Even if a fair minded cop "lets you off" off an unjust law, the terror of a "near miss" of prosecution remains, which is unjust in it's own right.

      Therefore, there are no good cops.

      I agree.

      league, union and federation all have the very same meaning. they are in fact, indistinguishable between one and another.

      in my country, it was the anti-federalists that $#@!ed things up.
      what is my proof?

      the US Constitution, does NOT have anything to do with "Rights" (read it yourself azzhat)

      people today... think that they have... "Constitutional rights" can we agree on that? if so....

      where did they get that idea from? you. the addition of your precious "Bill of Rights" did not do a damn bit of good.
      in fact...
      the Bill of Rights.. is what was used to bastardize the original federation.

      that is why our founders chose sheriffs over Police .
      one works for the people. the other works for a corporation.

      I disagree.

      We would be living under an even more oppressive state than what we have now.

      The only shreds of freedom left, to property, to be free from house to house searches, to own guns, to have some semblance of free speech or not be tortured, only exist because of the bill of rights.

      Your federation was a bastard to begin with, a half assed counter revolutionary coup, carried out in secret, that has grown to enslave us all.

      There was no $#@!ing it up worse than what it already was.

      Nice going, $#@!.

      it was a simple agreement to work together.
      "Rights" could be determined by the members.
      or not at all.
      it was your group that $#@!ed it up by including "Rights" to begin with.
      and you KNOW it.

      this point was argued in the federalist papers. #84. (mod edit)


      "Federalist No. 84 is notable for presenting the idea that a Bill of Rights was not a necessary component of the proposed United States Constitution.
      The Constitution, as originally written, did not specifically enumerate or protect the rights of the people. It is alleged that many Americans at the time opposed the inclusion of a bill of rights: if such a bill were created, they feared, this might later be interpreted as a list of the only rights that people had."

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federalist_No._84

      get your $#@! together. the Constitution and the bill of rights are NOT one and the same.
      but you KNOW that.. don't you?

      You are quoting Hamilton as the supreme being on the Bill of Rights? That's like quoting Satan on the meaning of Jesus' words. The Constitution was a Hamiltonian coup to make a powerful central government; it worked beautifully.

      And stop calling @Anti Federalist names; if you want people to listen to you, act with reason and intelligence, not insults and name-calling.

      why should a League be concerned with "rights" @Ender? there is no point or purpose in that.
      and that was CERTAINLY NOT the reason that they needed to work together.

      when it comes to a mutual defense pact. ( hint, hint... ) Unions can be very powerful.
      the Declaration of Independence would have served just fine as a basis for the determination of "Rights"

      are you pretending not to know these things? or is this genuine Ignorance on display here?

      I now have reason to suspect that neither one of you , @Ender or @Anti Federalist know what a federation is.

      what does a federation have to do with "Rights"?
      why don't you start there... and get back with me..

Professor Garth Cooper from The University of Manchester, who leads the Manchester team, says the build-up of urea in the brain to toxic levels can cause brain damage – and eventually dementia.

    The African Enlightenment and Liberal Ideals in 1500s

    Thread Starter: PierzStyx

    Interesting article. The writer takes a few shots at Locke, some justified and some incorrect. The whole tone of trying to pull down men like Locke to try and lift up others is unfortunate, I hate when authors try such a tactic because it is pointless. The real value of the article though is how it helps demonstrates that liberal ideals have developed independently of one another on every...

    FBI (all the way up to Hoover) Knowingly Frames Innocent Men, Covers Up Evidence for Decades

    Thread Starter: kcchiefs6465

    A case I just recently became aware of in which the FBI, all the way up to J. Edgar Hoover, conspired to imprison men for decades for a murder they knew the men didn't commit.
