    Update: post #371

    A Dallas County grand jury has indicted a former police officer who shot a mentally ill disabled man who was standing still with a knife in his hand last October, according to several sources with knowledge of the situation.

    Cardan Spencer was indicted in the shooting of Bobby Bennett, who survived, and will likely face an aggravated assault charge. News 8 first broke the story last October after a neighbor’s surveillance video showed the original police account was inaccurate.

    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Family seeks help with schizophrenic family member, police arrive and tase, shoot him

    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/michael-blair/

    HOUSTON, TX –A family received more than they bargained for when they requested the help of local police in dealing with a mentally ill family member. To “defuse” a situation involving a delusional man who had locked himself in a bathroom with a knife, police kicked in the door, screamed obscenities, tased him several times, and finally shot him to death. The horrifying scene was captured through a hidden camera set up by family members who were distrustful of police.

    The incident involving the death of Michael Blair took place on November 4th, 2013. The video was only recently released.

    It began as Blair, a 26-year-old paranoid schizophrenic, had an emotional episode in which he picked up a knife and claimed he wanted to hurt himself. Blair took the knife and locked himself in a bathroom. Not knowing what else to do, the Blair family called 9-1-1 for assistance.

    While police were en route, a family relative placed a cell phone in the hallway pointing toward the bathroom. The relative was concerned about what might happen when all of the family members were removed from view. The camera obtained a perfect angle from across the hallway, toward the doorway of the bathroom.
    “You want to do this the easy way. Don’t make us do it the hard way.”

    Two Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies soon arrived. They initiated contact in the most cordial way they knew how.

    “Hey man, we will kick in the door, and I don’t wanna do it,” one officer barked. “You want to do this the easy way. Don’t make us do it the hard way.”

    Police confirmed that Mr. Blair had a knife to his neck, which caused them to kick the door in immediately and scream as loudly as their lungs would allow.

    The officers continued screaming at the top of their lungs at the ill man. “Drop the knife! Drop the knife! You will drop that knife! You hear me?!”

    The excited man was in no condition to follow commands. The deputies began employing their tasers as a bargaining tool. Mr. Blair could be heard yelping in pain from the electric shocks.

    At one point the primary negotiator lowered his voice a few decibels and for the first time tried to talk to Mr. Blair without screaming. “Let it go. I don’t want to shock you again.” Blair could be heard babbling incoherently as he lay in a bathtub, frightened from the taser.

    The final negotiation was immediately followed by the sound of more shocks being administered. “I need another taser!” the deputy called to his partner, evidently signaling that he had drained his batteries.

    As the shocks finally ceased, Mr. Blair stood up and shook off the probes that had pierced his body. As he walked for the door, the lead deputy opened fire. Eleven shots rang out.

    Watch the hidden camera video of the incident below. [ WARNING: Graphic Content]



    The shot continued in rapid succession even after Blair had dropped to the floor. Among his fatal wounds, Blair was shot in the head.

    The family could be heard shrieking with terror. “Oh Jesus! You killed him!” a woman sobbed from off-camera.

    * * * * *

    “We want him to live a long life, so he will always remember my son and how he murdered him in that bathroom that day. My son did not deserve 11 shots to his head, and we have to find out from the media how many times he was shot in that bathroom. Even though we heard the shots ring out, we didn’t know. All that we’re asking is that someone recognizes what we recognize. That was brutality at its finest in that bathroom that day,” said Michael’s mother, Kimberly Blair-Olaniyi.

    As we have repeatedly seen, sending government force to ‘deal with’ a person suffering from mental instability is often a recipe for disaster. Cops know brute force, not finesse. The panicked, mentally ill man was only pushed over the edge by the violence that came crashing through his door. The screams and electric shocks were the last thing the situation needed.

    Requesting the forceful presence of government agents should only be sought with extreme caution. The pervasive enforcer mentality has proved to many people that the response that they may receive could turn out to be dramatically less than helpful.


    The situation is under further investigation, and the family intends to file a lawsuit.

    Sherwood cop Adam Keesee intimidated wife's accuser, encouraged her abuse of students, lawsuit claims

    http://www.oregonlive.com/sherwood/i...see_intim.html

    After Sherwood Police Officer Adam Keesee discovered that his wife had molested one of her students, he reported it to his coworkers, court records say.

    But instead of investigating Denise Keesee, then a Sherwood High School teacher, her husband and five other officers set out to intimidate, harass and coerce the boy into not taking any action against her, records say.

    That’s the crux of a $1.5 million lawsuit against Adam Keesee, five unnamed Sherwood officers and the City of Sherwood. The former student’s complaint was filed last week in Washington County Circuit Court.

    Sheriff’s deputies arrested Denise Keesee last year on charges of sexually abusing the plaintiff and another student.

    Florida man and his dog shot by SWAT team during pre-dawn no-knock raid

    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/howard-bowe/

    HALLANDALE BEACH, FL — A man is “fighting for his life” after being shot during a pre-dawn SWAT raid on his home because of suspected drug possession. His son was beaten and his dog was shot to death.

    At approximately 6:00 a.m., the Hallandale Police Department’s SWAT team broke through the back door of a local residence because they suspected that the owner possessed prohibited substances.

    Precisely what took place inside is not fully known, but the May 8th raid resulted in the homeowner being shot, his son being beaten, and his 13-year-old dog being killed.

    The man who was shot was local businessman Howard Bowe. His sister, who lives in the other half of the duplex, said he was unarmed.

    “They came in the back door,” said Corneesa Bowe, according to the Sun Sentinel. “Why shoot an unarmed person? Now he’s fighting for his life.”

    Mr. Bowe owns Power Auto in Davie, Florida. His family says there is no way the police targeted the right person.

    “My concern is really for my brother,” said Corneesa to Local-10. “I mean there’s no reason why they should have shot him. He has a business, an established business. He’s not this big drug dealer like they’re assuming.”

    Howard’s 16-year-old son was taken into custody and beaten in the process. He was questioned without a parent or a lawyer.

    Neighbor Fred Webb told the Sentinel that Bowe “is an honest man who worked every day” at his business. “I can’t understand it. I hope he’s all right.”

    SWAT Officer Michael McKenzie, a 14-year veteran of the department, was the one who pulled the trigger. He is on administrative leave.

    It is no surprise that another no-knock raid resulted in violence, given the aggressive nature of these surprise home invasions. Police State USA will monitor this case as more details are revealed.

    Cops are scrambling to cover up.

    The fact that they did not come right out and say "he had a weapon" and "we feared for our safety" indicates to me that Theye just flat out murdered this kid.

    California teen shot to death on side of highway during traffic stop

    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/adrian-parra/

    SALTON CITY, CA — A teen on his way to go on a date was shot to death on the side of the highway during a traffic stop. Police have been vague with details and his family is demanding answers.

    The incident occurred along Highway 86 on April 18th, just before 6:00 p.m. Imperial County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over 19-year-old Adrian Parra while he was on his way to take a girl out to enjoy dinner and a movie.

    For reasons unclear, the traffic stop reached a point where deputies opened fire on Parra, and he was fatally wounded. Even weeks later, his family says that the department is being elusive with details. They would only say that the stop was for “vehicle code violations.” Parra was shot 3-4 times, his mother revealed.

    “What happened, what went where they shot him so many times… why can’t they answer the question if there was a camera,” asked Maria Duenas, Parra’s mother to KMIR. But police have refused to speak about the incident because of an ongoing investigation.

    Parra, of Mecca, California, was an honor roll student who graduated from high school last year, and was planning on attending college.


    The 2 officers involved went on temporary paid leave, but have since returned to work, KMIR reported.

    His mother, Maria Duenas, is requesting that any witnesses to the incident call her with information at 760-396-2114.

    Not sure if this one has its own thread. I'll just put it here, but if someone wants to start a thread for it, please do:

    Cops Beat Veteran to Death after Traffic Stop for No Front License Plate
    http://www.thedailysheeple.com/cops-...e-plate_052014
    On Mother’s Day Tommy Yancy, father of two, was pulled over for not having a front license plate. What transpired beyond that point is not totally clear, but his injuries resulted in his death later that day. Yancy, 32, was a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

    There has been almost zero information or media coverage of the incident. A local publication, Imperial Valley Press, offers only a sidenote about his family raising money for his memorial and this:

    The 32-year-old Yancy died following an altercation with law enforcement during a traffic stop May 11 in Imperial. The circumstances around the death and the traffic stop are still under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.

    A source that wants to remain anonymous has come forward with a video and “WeAreChange” posted it to YouTube on Sunday.

    The quality of the video leaves a lot to be desired, but a lot of information is provided in the “About Section” of the video:
    [...]
    Yancy was stopped on his way to the store after a highway patrol officer spotted a missing front license plate on his vehicle. He was subsequently pulled from his car and attacked by a police K-9 unit, hit by a taser, and attacked by five officers until he succumbed to the beating and died. A witnessed, who filmed the incident, can be heard screaming on the recording: “How long before you guys call an ambulance? Call an ambulance!” According to the source of the video, who asked not to be named, his family has not been permitted to see his body, nor have they been given a cause of death.

    A close friend of Yancy described him as “shy, and a comedian” and told me, he was an “excellent dad, who kept in contact with his army buddies every week.” He also enjoyed basketball and loved hip-hop music. His sister-in-law, Jaqueline Hernandez, described him to me as “a very loving guy, loved his kids to death… they were his everything. Very funny down to earth guy, and loved by all.”
    Officers claim Yancy swung at an officer and attacked the K-9, however, near the end of the video, posted to YouTube on May 12, police are seen attempting to revive Yancy while a witness states, “All of this for one guy who wasn’t even resisting arrest,” the officer is said to have received no serious injuries.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.

    A concussion made him do it.

    http://www.realityzone.com/currentperiod.html

    Seattle Washington: Police Officer Garth Haynes was filmed kicking the head of a handcuffed man on the ground. [Initially, Haynes was found guilty of using excessive force, but that finding was overturned by the Police Chief because Haynes said he was suffering from a concussion when he kicked the man and, therefore, was not in full control of his actions. Reminiscent of the "Twinkie" defense, we expect to see a lot of concussions in future cases of police brutality.] KOMO4 2014 Jun 4
    http://www.infowars.com/seattle-poli...fed-mans-head/
    According to city spokeswoman Kimberly Mills, first responders never found evidence that Haynes had received a concussion to begin with.

    “There was no diagnosis of a concussion when Officer Haynes was evaluated by medical personnel following the incident,” Mills said.

    Despite Mill’s evidence, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced during a Monday press conference that he would not challenge the city’s decision, but would work to fix police corruption issues.

    “We have a complaint process, an appeals process, and a punishment process that is broken,” Murray said.

    Tim Leary, a lawyer who previously represented the man who was stomped on, was seemingly shocked at the city’s decision.

    “I think there are significant questions where an officer is claiming a concussion caused him to be confused and lack the ability to control his actions when he’s stomping on the head of a hand-cuffed suspect he’s upset with,” Leary said.

    Chief Bailey’s decision comes only days after more than 125 Seattle officers filed a private lawsuit against city officials and the U.S. Justice Department for attempting to stop them from regularly using violence.

    That should do it!

    That story was from last year:

    Coroner: Man who died in Sacramento police custody suffered 'excited delirium'
    http://blogs.sacbee.com/crime/archiv...-delirium.html
    he man who died in Sacramento police custody in May following a violent struggle with officers died of methamphetamine-induced excited delirium, according to the county Coroner's Office.

    John Nat Torretti Jr., 42, died May 24 shortly after being handcuffed by officers outside the Metro PCS store on the 8300 block of Folsom Boulevard. The arrest followed a brutal fight with officers, police said.

    That week, coroner's officials released a statement that Torretti's autopsy revealed no obvious signs of trauma to the body - an effort to assuage concerns among some members of the public who questioned whether the man had died as the result of excessive force by officers.
    [...]
    Officers regained control of the situation after a bystander intervened and kicked the suspect. After officers handcuffed him, they noticed Torretti was unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    According to the Coroner's Office, his case of death later was determined to be "sudden death following violent struggle with law enforcement due to methamphetamine-induced excited delirium."
    Mmm hm.

    New Low. Cop Robs a Terminally Ill 3 Year old of her Make-A-Wish Foundation Money....




    Officer Ronald Harris is a 12 year veteran of the Memphis police department. His record while ‘serving and protecting’ is less than stellar.

    With a rap sheet over 100 pages long, it begs the question, how in the hell was this guy able to remain a cop for so long with so many violations?

    All too often we see police officers, who have sworn to protect society from criminals, be the actual criminals.

    Harris’ personnel file contained several violations including damage to a squad car, radio violations, sick leave policy abuse, sleeping on the job, failure to get approval for additional employment, and failure to appear in court. Most resulted in a written reprimand or a short suspension, but he was never fired.

    Over the weekend, a family was travelling with their young daughter who is terminally ill. She was a participant in the Make-A-Wish foundation.




    Officer Harris was off-duty, however being the stellar example of law enforcement that he is, he decided that he would ‘protect’ the family of this young girl from their bag filled with five t-shirts and a $1,500 pre-paid Visa check card from the Make-A-Wish foundation.

    According to WFSB News, Harris reportedly tried to take the bag twice; both times the Make-A-Wish father stopped him. But it took airport and Memphis Police several tries to get Harris in custody after he kicked open a squad car door and ran.



    According to an affidavit, police eventually had to use a pair of leg-cuffs to get Harris under arrest.

    “People make poor choices, and we don’t know the decisions that lead this person to do what they did. We are just fortunate that we have the Memphis Police Department and the airport,” added Liz Nelson, Make-A-Wish President and CEO.

    But he was the “Memphis Police Department”!

    Harris is set to appear in court on June 16th.

    “It is certainly disheartening and I am deeply saddened that an organization as wonderful as Make-A-Wish was victimized by someone sworn to protect, especially a member of the Memphis Police Department. Thankfully, no one sustained serious injuries. This officer is now facing serious charges for his criminal behavior. The Airport Police is to be commended for their quick response and professionalism, ” said Police Director Toney Armstrong.

    Disheartening indeed.

    Officer Ronald Harris is a 12 year veteran of the Memphis police department. His record while ‘serving and protecting’ is less than stellar.

    With a rap sheet over 100 pages long, it begs the question, how in the hell was this guy able to remain a cop for so long with so many violations?

    All too often we see police officers, who have sworn to protect society from criminals, be the actual criminals.

    Harris’ personnel file contained several violations including damage to a squad car, radio violations, sick leave policy abuse, sleeping on the job, failure to get approval for additional employment, and failure to appear in court. Most resulted in a written reprimand or a short suspension, but he was never fired.

    Over the weekend, a family was travelling with their young daughter who is terminally ill. She was a participant in the Make-A-Wish foundation.




    Officer Harris was off-duty, however being the stellar example of law enforcement that he is, he decided that he would ‘protect’ the family of this young girl from their bag filled with five t-shirts and a $1,500 pre-paid Visa check card from the Make-A-Wish foundation.

    According to WFSB News, Harris reportedly tried to take the bag twice; both times the Make-A-Wish father stopped him. But it took airport and Memphis Police several tries to get Harris in custody after he kicked open a squad car door and ran.



    According to an affidavit, police eventually had to use a pair of leg-cuffs to get Harris under arrest.

    “People make poor choices, and we don’t know the decisions that lead this person to do what they did. We are just fortunate that we have the Memphis Police Department and the airport,” added Liz Nelson, Make-A-Wish President and CEO.

    But he was the “Memphis Police Department”!

    Harris is set to appear in court on June 16th.

    “It is certainly disheartening and I am deeply saddened that an organization as wonderful as Make-A-Wish was victimized by someone sworn to protect, especially a member of the Memphis Police Department. Thankfully, no one sustained serious injuries. This officer is now facing serious charges for his criminal behavior. The Airport Police is to be commended for their quick response and professionalism, ” said Police Director Toney Armstrong.

    Disheartening indeed.

    16 Year Old Gymnast Shot Dead by Police For Holding a Stick, Cops Seize Video Footage
    http://thefreethoughtproject.com/16-...YvrOS43RwA0.99

    In the past year. police in New Mexico have become notorious for killing innocent people. The most recent wrongful death took place in Espanola, when a police officer shot an unarmed 16 year old Gymnast for no reason.

    16 year old Victor Vialpando was a gymnast, dancer and a teacher at Moving Arts Espanola. According to his family he has no criminal record.

    The police claim that he pointed a weapon at them, but the boy was unarmed and the police are refusing to release security camera footage that would corroborate their story.

    Close friends of Victor believe that he may have had a stick that he was using to practice a dance routine, which he often does.

    “I can’t fathom him even having a gun on his body, much less holding it and pointing it at somebody,” a friend said.

    The case is being investigated by the same police department that the murdering police officers belong to.

    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.

    Officials in Campbell, Wisconsin, have placed police chief Tim Kelemen on leave after he admitted using a Tea Party activist's name and email address to create accounts on pornographic, dating and insurance websites from both his home and work computers. Kelemen was apparently upset that Tea Party activists have protested and filed a federal lawsuit over the city's decision to bar political protests on a pedestrian walkway on Interstate 90.

    Did a search to update but haven't seen this case posted yet.

    Meanwhile in Chicago, a 911 recording was released in the fatal shooting by an off-duty cop of his 86-year-old neighbor. The neighbor’s 91-year-old wife was also shot. She is charged with misdemeanor battery and aggravated assault of a police officer. The cop, who is not charged and whom the city will not name, says the 86-year-old man brandished a shot gun during a dispute between his wife and the cop’s wife.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,7883001.story

    Although Huff’s family disputed the officer’s account of the incident, the recordings appear to resemble the account the officer gave to police.
    [...]
    Police say the officer also shot Jones-Huff. The officer has not been charged.

    Jones-Huff was charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery and aggravated assault of a police officer as a result of the incident, and is due in court Monday.

    The recordings were obtained from the Office of Emergency Management and Communications by the Chicago Tribune through a Freedom of Information Act request. The recordings are redacted to block the identity of the callers and descriptions of injuries.

    The longest recording is from the off-duty officer himself. But there also are recordings of two other neighbors reporting the incident. On one of those, a female neighbor can be heard asking police to come settle the dispute. Then, the shots can be heard.

    “Oh, he shot. He shooting. He shot that old man, oh my God,” the woman says. “He just shot that old man that live next door to them.”

    Attempts to reach Jones-Huff were unsuccessful. The officer and his wife refused comment through their family.

    But Huff’s son, Joe Huff III, again disputed the officer’s version of events.

    “Why was my father shot in the back three times,” he wrote in a text message about the tapes. “This is a police officer who planned this all out and wanted to kill my dad and make sure he covered himself.”
    [...]
    According to residents and family, Huff and his wife had a longtime feud with his neighbor over petty offenses like dropping litter in each other’s yards, shoveling the snow onto each other’s property and sweeping dirt across each other’s walkways.
    Previously:

    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...f-duty-officer

    The man's youngest son, Joseph Huff III, said from the moment his father moved on the block, there was tension with his neighbor - the officer and his wife.

    "My father has been into it with these people for years," he said. "This is not the first confrontation. This man has picked on my father for years."

    Shenek Clay, who lives two houses away, said she heard the scuffle between Huff and his neighbors. She called police at 2:15 pm to get help, she said. But before officers could arrive, she heard the shots.

    "I could hear (Huff) yelling, 'Get off me! Get off me! Get the hell off me,' " Clay said. "I called the police because I thought they were jumping on him again. It's sad because they have been jumping on that old man since he moved on the bloc

    A Philadelphia Police officer was arrested after she allegedly encouraged and participated in several fights between her teen children and other minors.

    Investigators say Tamika Gross, a 35-year-old Philadelphia Police officer in the 16th District, was involved in several altercations between January of 2012 and October of 2013.

    The first incident took place on January 25, 2012, according to investigators. Police say Gross walked with her 18-year-old son to the 900 block of Marcella Street and demanded that he fight a 16-year-old boy who lived on the block.

    Several fights broke out on the street between several groups of teen boys shortly after and police were called to the scene. Investigators say numerous 911 calls reporting the fight were made and one radio call reported that there was a riot on the street and that an “officer needed assistance.” Investigators later determined that the officer in need of assistance was Gross.

    Gross was allegedly involved in another fight on March 16, 2012. Investigators say a 13-year-old girl and her 17-year-old sister were walking near Loretto Avenue and Sanger Street. Suddenly, police say, Gross pulled up in a car and her teen daughter jumped out.

    The daughter then allegedly began punching both girls in the face as Gross encouraged her to fight. The victims told police that Gross kept screaming during the fight that she was an off-duty police officer and that no one would get arrested.

    Finally, police say Gross was involved in another fight on October 23, 2013. Gross and her daughter allegedly approached a 14-year-old girl near Lincoln High School. Police say Gross’ daughter and the girl were involved in an argument at the school earlier that day.

    The daughter allegedly challenged the girl to a fight as Gross encouraged her. Police say Gross was captured on cellphone video standing in the crowd and watching the brawl. The 14-year-old girl told police that Gross also punched her twice in the eye before the fight ended.

    Gross is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. She turned herself In to Internal Affairs Tuesday morning.

    Two women are suing the city of Lauderhill, Florida and two police officers, Franklin Hartley and Thomas Merenda for an alleged rape for which the two cops, on unpaid administrative leave, are already facing criminal charges. They allege in their lawsuit that the police department "hires violent and dangerous individuals as police officers" and regularly fails to investigative complaints about cops.

    What's being alleged, via The Sun Sentinel:
    According to the lawsuit, the women had drinks at the Vegas Cabaret strip club on University Drive in Lauderhill and left when it closed at 4 a.m. Within minutes, Hartley pulled them over in a Taco Bell drive-through in Tamarac.

    After taking the driver's vehicle registration and insurance documents, the lawsuit says Hartley ordered the women to follow him and led them to the back of a closed tire shop at 7300 West Commercial Blvd. Moments later, Merenda showed up in his patrol car.

    Hartley took Jane Doe 1 to the front of his vehicle and under threat of arrest ordered her to perform oral sex and then raped her, the lawsuit says.

    Merenda, according to the suit, remained with the driver at the rear of his vehicle and "engaged her in [bizarre] conversations about his family, wife and marital problems."

    After the rape, the suit alleges that the officers swapped women and fondled their breasts and genitalia.

    GPS data shows that both patrol cars remained at the location for more than 90 minutes, according to the suit.
    According to the lawsuit, the two officers were the target of another suit in 2012 over an alleged false arrest which was settled for $75,000 and never led to any disciplinary actions. The lawsuit also lists four other cops lawyers accuse the department of not disciplining appropriately in their attempt to show the department's pattern of not holding officers accountable for their actions.

    Hartley and Merenda face felony charges of unlawful compensation and a misdemeanor charge of battery—the officers are also accused in the criminal complaint of coercing one of the women to punch Merenda in the genitals, because apparently he liked nut punches.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.

    Cop shoots unarmed great-grandfather at family picnic, faces no consequences
    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/bernard-monroe/

    HOMER, LA — Two police officers crashed a family cookout to harass a man who was not wanted or suspected of any crimes, then shot the man’s elderly father and allegedly planted a gun on him, according to numerous witnesses.

    This incident took place in the town of Homer, home to only 3,800 residents. The poor, northern Louisiana town had made it a priority for its 8-cop roster to get “tough on drugs.”

    In doing so, Homer Police officers were instructed to stop and question young black males without cause, and to go after certain individuals for targeted harassment. One of these specific targets was 38-year-old Shaun Monroe.
    [...]
    When police attempted to confront Shaun, he backed away, likely because he knew of the unjust methodologies of the local police against his demographic. “[Officers] Henry and Cox entered the [Monroe] property, without permission or cause, and began chasing Shaun Monroe,” a subsequent lawsuit alleged. The cops then entered the house. “Each of these actions was without legal justification,” the lawsuit stated.

    The New York Times described the chaotic scene, and the tragedy that came next:

    [W]hen Officer Henry called his name, Shaun Monroe darted behind the house, went back around the front and ran inside. Officer Cox followed and chased him through the house, a chase that, the lawsuit argues, was “without just cause” or legal justification.

    Shaun Monroe burst out of the front door and was at the front gate when Officer Henry, who was in the yard, hit him with a Taser. Seconds later, Officer Cox reached the front screen door from the inside, witnesses said, as the elder Mr. Monroe was walking up the steps to the porch.

    Officer Cox told investigators that the elder Mr. Monroe had picked up a pistol he kept on the porch and was aiming it at Officer Henry. All of the civilian witnesses say Mr. Monroe was carrying only a sports drink bottle.

    But this is not in dispute: Mr. Cox shot Mr. Monroe seven times in the chest, side and back. Several witnesses said they saw a police officer later place the pistol next to Mr. Monroe’s body, but the police officers said that was because it had been moved when they were checking his wounds.
    [...]
    “[Officer] Cox, who was inside the Monroes’ house at the time, unlawfully and repeatedly fired his gun through the screen door at Bernard Monroe, Sr., while he was standing harmlessly on his own front porch,” stated a lawsuit.

    Louise immediately came outside to comfort her husband of over 50 years, as he lay bleeding on the sidewalk. Bernard’s wounds were fatal and he soon passed away in front of his traumatized family.

    “[Officer Cox] just shot him through the screen door,” said Denise Nicholson, a family friend who witnessed the shooting from a few feet away. “After [Bernard Monroe] was on the ground, we kept asking the officer to call an ambulance, but all he did was get on his radio and say, ‘Officer in distress.’”
    [...]
    The Los Angeles Times reveals further details:

    The witnesses said the second officer [Joseph Henry] picked up a handgun that [Bernard] Monroe, an avid hunter, always kept in plain sight on the porch for protection. Using a latex glove, the officer grasped the gun by its handle, the witnesses said, and ordered everyone to back away. The next thing they said they saw was the gun next to Monroe’s body.

    “I saw him pick up the gun off the porch,” Marcus Frazier said. “I said, ‘What are you doing?’ The cop told me, ‘Shut the hell up, you don’t know what you’re talking about.’ “
    [...]
    The evidence was presented before a grand jury, but they declined to indict Officer Tim Cox on criminal charges for the shooting.

    “I am so disappointed,” the Rev. Willie Young, Sr., said to USA Today. “When you have 12 witnesses that say the man did not have a gun and he was gunned down by police, what are you supposed to believe? We are left with the belief that police in Homer have a license to kill."

    Virginia high schooler threatens suicide, police arrive and kill him
    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/c...lberto-sierra/

    PURCELLVILLE, VA — A community is devastated after a suicidal teenager was shot to death by police following a family’s call for help.

    Christian Alberto Sierra, 17, was a popular student and athlete at Loudoun Valley High School. His friends noticed his good-natured demeanor begin to slip into a depression and ultimately toward the unthinkable. On May 24, 2014, he suffered a breakdown and threatened suicide.
    [...]
    Christian was shot an unknown number of times by a Purcellville police officer, who was responding to a suicide call. Christian died shortly thereafter.

    His mom, Sandra Sierra, was beside herself when she heard the news.

    “I banged on their car and I’m like, ‘You killed my kid. You killed my kid,’” Sandra yelled at the officer.

    The officer claimed that Christian “lunged” at him, justifying the shoot. But others claim the officer was too quick to pull the trigger.

    “Why would you shoot a child that is suicidal?” asked the teen’s mother. “You are there to save him, not finish him off.”

    “They’re supposed to come to help and stop the suicide and they came and killed him,” said Natalie Moriarty, Christian’s aunt, to MyFoxDC.

    His friends and family have had to learn a painful lesson that many others have faced; that inviting the government to resolve a crisis will often result in wanton violence and tragedy. Christian Sierra has become another victim on a growing list of folks who have been victimized by those who were supposed to come to help.

    In Florida, Non-Submission to a Police Beating is “Attempted Murder”

    https://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog...empted-murder/

    Every day, somewhere in this supposedly free county, some version of this script is played out: A police officer spies an individual committing a harmless but “illegal” act, aggressively pursues the subject, inflicts physical violence on the victim, then escalates that violence to lethal or nearly lethal levels when the victim doesn’t immediately submit to the state-licensed aggression.

    We could refer to this as the “From Malum Prohibitum to Murder” model of police escalation. Citizens who aren’t killed in such encounters can expect to be punished for the impudence they display by surviving. Police officers responsible for the actual crimes of violence will not face prosecution, owing to the evil doctrine of “qualified immunity.” A recent episode in Florida resulted in several charges – including attempted murder – against a man whose only apparent “offense” was to refuse to submit to a beating by a police officer.

    The assault began when an officer named Ronald Cannella who had attempted to pull over a man named Livingston Manners for allegedly running a stop light dragged the driver from his vehicle and threw him to the ground in a gas station. It’s quite likely that Manners, in justifiable fear for his safety, sought a well-lit area for the encounter with the brigand.

    Security camera video shows that Manners was compliant and non-aggressive as the officer tried to “build the stop” by searching his vehicle. The officer eventually reached into the vehicle and pulled Manners from it, and the victim does nothing to resist, holding his hands face-up and to the sides. Cannella can be seen putting a forearm on the face and the throat of his victim, and then punching him repeatedly. Although no audio is available, it’s certain that this attack was punctuated with the rapist’s refrain, “Stop resisting!”

    Cannella eventually places the victim on his back and appears to be attempting to place a chokehold on him. Manners defends himself with a maneuver similar to the “guard” position from Jiu-Jitsu, trapping the uniformed assailant’s arms and holding him at bay for roughly 45 seconds until the aggressor’s comrades arrive.

    At no point in the struggle is Manners seen making an aggressive move, or touching the throat of the assailant. It is possible that the victim applied a lapel choke – but if he did so this came after Cannella had already repeatedly struck him and, apparently, attacked his own throat first.

    Although Cannella claimed in his report that he feared for his life (the default emotional state of police officers, who are trained to see the public as enemy combatants rather than fellow citizens), and that during the ninety-second scuffle Manners choked him into unconsciousness, the cop is still on top and apparently in control when other officers arrived to beat and tase Manners into submission.

    Cannella claimed that Manners “locked his legs around my body preventing my escape” while he “forcefully grabbed my throat and strangled me.” Yet in the video, Cannella displays no difficulty extricating himself and standing up once a fellow costumed enforcer arrived on the scene. Any breathing difficulty he experienced was most likely a reflection of his panic and poor cardiovascular conditioning, rather than actions taken by his victim.

    In addition to the peculiar offense called “resisting without violence,” the charges against Manners include “attempted murder” for allegedly placing his hands on the throat of the armed and violent stranger who had him pinned to the ground, beating and attempting to choke him.

    The report by the Miami NBC affiliate faithfully regurgitated the Hollywood PD’s line, describing the incident as a “vicious attack on a police officer” in which the Intrepid Defender of All That is Good and Decent was “choked unconscious.” The report likewise retailed the outrage expressed by Lt. Derik Alexander that a biker who arrived on the scene didn’t wade in to help the tax-devouring functionary subdue Manners. Although the biker’s motives were never explained, by not reflexively taking the side of the uniformed aggressor, he passed the Tom Joad Test.

    Police frequently place unarmed victims in headlocks and chokehold-style restraints. If the standard being used to justify the attempted murder charge against Manners were applied uniformly, the use of such techniques by police would justify a lethal defensive response by the victim, or a citizen who came to his rescue.

    Full of fail.

    Regardless, what is to be noted is the backup police's response. "I don't care" [with regards to the person having not done anything illegal], "Film me all you want," etc.
