    Did that Cop Just Make Sure He Was On Camera Before Beating Up On a Little Kid?

    (Phoenix AZ) — A facebook video submitted to the Free Thought Project shows a troubling interaction between what appears to be 11 to 13 year old children and a police officer.

    In the video a, Phoenix police officer grabs a young boy and brings him over to a concrete wall in the median of a highway.

    For some reason, most likely arrogance, the officer then makes sure that the other kids are filming.
    [...]
    The next thing we see is this cop, who is much larger than this child, slam him up against the concrete wall. He then begins pushing the youth’s arms up behind his back, in what looks like an attempt to intentionally inflict pain or harm.

    The boy screams out in agony and is then hauled off in cuffs.

    According to Sophia, a woman claiming to be the cousin of the boy in the video, these boys were only involved with the police because the officer allegedly called them wetbacks and they yelled back.

    The children were part of a summer youth program to keep them away from drugs and violence and were out working to earn money, according to Sophia.

    The Free Thought Project reached out to the Phoenix Police Department and they declined to comment on the incident.

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.

    Pennsylvania man shot by police during warrant service for parking tickets

    "He pulled the car out of the garage and all I heard were gunshots."

    Posted on July 25, 2014 by Site Staff in News

    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/kevin-mccullers/

    LEHIGH COUNTY, PA — A man may never walk again after he was shot in his driveway by a constable who had showed up to his home regarding unpaid parking tickets.

    Kevin McCullers, 38, was just about to make a trip to go buy some morning doughnuts when his life changed forever. Around 7:30 a.m. on July 17th, McCullers got into his car, opened his garage door, and put his car into reverse gear. As he backed out of the driveway, his girlfriend abruptly heard gunshots ring out.

    Two strange men were outside, and one had just shot Mr. McCullers while in the driver’s seat of his car.

    “They never knocked on the door! No nothing! I just heard the gunshots! He pulled the car out of the garage and all I heard were gunshots,” Hafeezah Muhammad told NBC 10 Philadelphia. She was inside the house during the attack.

    The shooter turned out to be a Pennsylvania State Constable, performing an early morning warrant service over unpaid parking tickets. The unnamed constable claimed that he feared for his life by Mr. McCullers backing out of his driveway — so he opened fire.

    “For someone to get shot, on the way to Dunkin’ Donuts, unarmed, for parking tickets? For tickets?! Its insane,” said Ms. Muhammad.

    Mr. McCullers was shot in the back. The bullet struck his spine, and he is now paralyzed from the waist down. He may never regain the ability to walk.

    The shooter has been allowed to remain anonymous. There has been no word on any discipline or criminal charges that he may face, if any.

    Quebec City cops pinned dying cyclist to ground, witnesses say
    http://www.torontosun.com/2014/09/05...-witnesses-say

    Witnesses say a cruiser that attempted to pull over Blouin, going the wrong way down a one-way street just after 1 p.m., instead ran him over.

    "He went under the wheels," said Bibi, who would only give her first name. She said the cruiser then shifted into drive and ran Blouin over a second time.

    Witness Sylvie Dion described a "rough arrest" in which officers pinned Blouin to the ground by both of his arms.

    Bibi added: "I saw the blood coming out of his mouth, he shouted 'I'm hurt.'"

    The witnesses also said officers walked the man to an ambulance as he was doubled over in pain.

    Blouin died a few hours later.

    Here's a story about an ex-cop "accidentally" shooting his autistic stepson in the knee. The gun just went off! Happens all the time evidently. Not to me or anyone I know, but it seems to happen to cops quite frequently.

    Take a wild guess which one is in jail.

    http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/26528437...glewood-avenue

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ied-punch.html

    A retired police chief shot his autistic 18-year-old son after the boy tried to punch him, reports claim.

    Kirk Eidson, 59, was in his room getting ready to drive Robert Camron Ingle across town to their second home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, when the teenager launched in with a clenched fist, he told officers.

    Grabbing a handgun from his pocket, Mr Eidson claims he tried to calm Ingle down before accidentally firing a shot at his right kneecap.

    The former officer, who retired from the local police department last year after 28 years' service, then fled the property.

    DEA Shoot Grandmother Reaching For Baby During Raid, According to Son
    http://reason.com/blog/2014/09/19/de...ching-for-baby

    Lilian Alonzo, a 49-year-old grandmother, was shot while trying to pick up an infant grandchild during a by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Manchester, New Hampshire, according to her son. Police in raids elsewhere arrested two of Alonzo's daughters in an oxycodone ring but neither of them lived with Lilian and no drugs, weapons, or cash was found in her home.

    The New Hampshire Attorney General's office is investigating the shooting, according to the New Hampshire Union-Leader, and believe that "one of the officer's weapons discharged." They're expected to rule on whether the shooting was accidental, and an initial report could be released this month.
    MANCHESTER — Lilian Alonzo, the grandmother shot late last month during a DEA drug raid at her apartment, was picking up an infant when a bullet ripped through her arm and entered her torso, her son told the New Hampshire Union Leader.

    The son said agents later tore up Alonzo’s apartment in a search for drugs. No drugs, weapons or large amounts of cash were found, said Daniel Nunez, who returned to his home in Florida after spending the last two weeks with his mother.

    He said the shooting took place after his 10-year-old sister opened the door and police barged into the apartment.

    “She (Alonzo) went to pick up the baby. They thought she was reaching for something, and they shot her,” Nunez believes.
    [...]
    On the evening of the raid, three children were in the apartment: Alonzo’s 10-year-old daughter, and her grandchildren: ages 4 and 1 1/2, Daniel Nunez said.

    Daniel Nunez said he’s shocked that heavily armed police barged into the apartment. The case had been going on for nearly a year, so authorities knew that young children frequented the apartment, he said.

    Two bullets were fired, Daniel Nunez said. One went through Alonzo’s arm and lodged in her left rib cage. The other entered an apartment wall, he said. His mother needed 30 stitches, and the bullet remains in her, Nunez said.
    Another incident in TX:

    Earlier this week, a Houston police officer shot a man in the abdomen during a "confrontation" in a drug raid in which the DEA also participated in Sugar Land, Texas. "This neighborhood is really quiet and peaceful. Our kids run around the neighborhood. It's a great place to live, it's very surprising to see this in this area," one resident told the local TV station. There are more than a hundred SWAT raids a day across the United States, often on drug-related charges.

    Just a little too much. What happened to protect and serve? Thankfully, most of these despicable cops were arrested by their own.

    Thanks to T.M. for pointing me to the “protect and serve” website.
    It's not limited to cops' abuse of kids though.

    Ex-Cop Found Guilty of Raping 5 Year Old- With a Pencil

    ....


    This is not Warren’s first time sexually abusing a minor, although the jury in this case did not hear about his prior offenses.

    In May of 2010 Warren was accused of not reporting a crime, after a friend was convicted of sex abuse of a child. He was fired from his job as a police officer, but was reinstated after he sued the department, KGW reports.

    Warren was once again terminated in in 2011 after an internal investigation found that he had lied during a 2009 criminal investigation into allegations that he sexually abused a minor when he was 17. Despite probable cause to believe he had commit the crime, he was not prosecuted, as the victim chose not to cooperate.

    He was later reinstated, but was terminated for a third time in August 2013 after he was indicted on charges of welfare fraud.

    SFPD Corruption Trial Pits Cops Against Cops

    I love the sound of crooked cops testifying against other crooked cops!

    The trial of two "bad cops" involved in a string of incidents involving stolen drugs, stolen goods, warrantless searches, and other poor behavior began this week in federal court. Sgt. Ian Furminger, 48, and Officer Edmond Robles, 47, are being painted by prosecutors as two-thirds of a trio of corrupt undercover officers who went around to SROs in the Mission and Tenderloin stealing "drugs and money from their own confidential informants as well as from crime scenes, and sometimes [paying] off informants with those drugs," as the Examiner reports.

    The third member of this group, former officer Reynaldo Vargas, recently pleaded guilty to charges against him, and he was fired from the department earlier for falsifying time cards.

    This is What a High School Football Game Looks Like In a Police State
    http://thefreethoughtproject.com/hig...uqhAIV6vcgH.99
    Prattville, AL — A 17-year-old high school student was having fun and talking to a girl at a football game Friday when all of the sudden a ski-masked Phenix City Police Officer comes from behind and assaults him.

    Police officers were near the students because they were trying to move them back from the railing. Cameron Rader, the boy who was assaulted in the video says he was no where near the railing, and we can clearly see in the video that he was not near the railing before the assault.

    “This cop in front of me is just staring me and my friends down for absolutely no reason and saying things like, ‘I’m not a cop you can mess with,’ and I just started laughing, because it was crazy,” Rader said. “When I laughed, he said, ‘Oh, you think this is funny? Do you see me laughing?’ I told him no sir.”

    According to the Montgomery Advertiser, Rader said the brief confrontation ended at that point and he turned to begin talking with a female student behind him. A few seconds later, he said the officer accused him of pushing him.

    The entire incident was captured on video by one of the students watching the game.

    Rader, a 17-year-old senior at PHS, said that after the officer claimed that he had pushed him Rader denied touching the officer. That’s when the ski-masked man shoved him backward into a walkway.

    We can then see on the video that the officer sprayed the completely non-violent teen right in the eyes with pepper spray.

    “I was telling him to get his hands off me, to stop touching me, and then I asked what I did,” Rader told the Montgomery Advertiser. “You can see that on the video. I have my hands by my side. I’m being compliant and he keeps pushing me. That’s when he maces me. I couldn’t breathe. It was in my throat and nose and the fumes were burning my eyes. And it hurt for a long time.”

    Rader was then dragged out of the game into the parking lot where the police officer exclaimed to the other officers that Rader “nudged him,” according to Rader.

    After not being able to charge the teen with anything, Rader was released to the principal and allowed to leave the game.

    ‘He’s blind, dumb*ss’: Cops ditch disabled man in vacant lot to protest videotaping of pot bust
    http://www.strike-the-root.com/cops-...ng-of-pot-bust

    A visually impaired Florida man said police took him to an unfamiliar area and left him there in retaliation after his stepfather recorded cell phone video of a pot bust.
    [...]
    Four plainclothes officers from the Miami-Dade Police department pulled into a dead end street the evening of Aug. 27 and arrested three men they believed had been smoking marijuana, reported WFOR-TV.

    The arrest report shows officers found a marijuana cigarette on the ground they approached the men.

    Officers arrested all three of them as a fourth man recorded the incident on his cell phone.

    They released two of the men after they signed tickets promising to appear in court, but the third man – Tannie “T-Man” Burke – was handcuffed and led to the back of an unmarked car, where he had trouble finding the door.

    “He’s blind, dumb*ass,” says the man videotaping the arrest. “If you don’t tell him he’s walking to the car, how the hell is he going to know?”

    The 21-year-old Burke has been legally blind since birth, the station reported, with no vision at all in his right eye and just a general sense of shapes and lights in his left eye.

    He said he’s comfortable getting around his block in the daytime but does not venture far at night.

    Burke said officers drove him around the neighborhood for about 20 minutes before dropping him off after dark in a vacant lot in South Dade – about a mile from his home.

    Burke told the station that police complained throughout the drive about his stepfather.

    “They said, ‘Your stepfather got a lot of mouth — you know we don’t like that,’” he said.

    He said he told officers he was blind, but they didn’t seem to care and dropped him off in an area without streetlights or houses after making him sign an arrest form he couldn’t read.

    Police had taken his cell phone, so Burke said he started walking home with one foot in the road and the other on the weed-choked curb strip to keep him from straying into traffic.

    Eventually, he found a street that was lit and a stranger agreed to help him get home.

    “Forty-five minutes to an hour later he comes walking through the door all sweaty up,” said his stepfather, Marvin Armstrong. “I was like, ‘How’d you get out?’”

    Burke and his family filed a complaint with the police department, which handed the case over to its internal affairs unit.

    I'll just put this here. If anyone wants to start a thread, go for it.

    More Than 1,000 People Have Been Killed by Police in 2014
    http://reason.com/blog/2014/12/09/mo...-been-killed-b
    There are no frills to be found at www.killedbypolice.net. The site is just a simple spreadsheet. The information it contains, though, is invaluable. It is a list of every single person documented to have been killed by police in the United States in 2013 and 2014. There are links to a media report for every single death, as well as their names, ages, and when known, sex and race.

    The site is so valuable because, as we’ve noted previously, there is no reliable national database for keeping track of the number of people killed by police each year. The FBI tracks homicides by law enforcement officers, but participation is voluntary, and many agencies don’t participate. As I noted last week, Eric Garner’s death at the hands of a New York Police Department won’t show up in the FBI’s statistics for 2014 because the state of New York does not participate in the program.

    The FBI’s statistics for 2013 say that law enforcement officers killed 461 people that year. Killedbypolice.net apparently got its start last year. Using their system of monitoring by news report, they have calculated that police actually killed 748 people between May and December. That’s 287 more than the FBI reports for the whole year.

    And for 2014, which still has a couple of weeks left, the site has reported 1,029 people have been killed by police. That’s about a 30 percent increase over last year, though with four-month gap at the start of 2013 (measuring 25 percent of the year), it's possible the numbers would be much closer if we had January through April. Even with the FBI’s broken numbers, we know that 2013 marked a two-decade high in killings by police.

    Neither the site nor its Facebook page indicates who is responsible for compiling this information, and they’re protecting their identity by hosting the site through GoDaddy. We can’t talk to whoever is responsible for this database about how or why they started it and how much effort it is to keep track of this information. Here is a page for people to submit information to help improve the quality of the database.

    Just another bad apple.

    http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/articl...on-5969915.php

    A San Francisco sheriff’s deputy was arrested Friday for allegedly choking a hospital patient, and then arresting the man for trying to assault him with his cane, authorities said.

    Michael Lewelling, 33, was charged with perjury, filing a false police report, filing a false instrument and assault under the color of authority — all felonies — as well as misdemeanor battery for the Nov. 3 attack at San Francisco General Hospital, according to the district attorney’s office.

    Lewelling was assigned to the Sheriff Department’s patrol unit at the hospital when he filed a report accusing the victim of attempting to attack him with a wooden cane. The man was arrested on various felony and misdemeanor charges and taken into custody.

    The district attorney’s office declined to file charges and the man was released the next day. Prosecutors requested video evidence, which allegedly showed Lewelling instigating the situation.

    The victim had been sleeping in a chair in the emergency room’s waiting area about 5 a.m., waiting for a doctor’s appointment, when prosecutors said the video showed Lewelling approaching the victim and engaging him in conversation as he woke up.

    When the victim tried to walk away with the help of his cane, the video showed Lewelling grabbing the back of his collar, shoving him back into the seat and knocking his cane away, the district attorney’s office said.

    The video then showed Lewelling grabbing the man’s throat and choking him before placing him under arrest, prosecutors said.


    “The fact that a sheriff’s deputy allegedly battered a patient at San Francisco General Hospital is unnerving,” said District Attorney George Gascón. “What’s worse is that he’s also alleged to have perjured himself on a police report, unforgivable conduct that led to the arrest of the innocent victim.”
    So beating up a disabled old man is merely "unnerving," but lying on paperwork is "worse" and "unforgivable." Got it.
    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.

    Body cam caught him...amazing that they work sometimes! http://filmingcops.com/cop-slams-wom...lls-the-truth/
    Sorry if this is a dupe. Forum search didn't find it.

    NEVADA – The narrative of abusing citizens under the pretext of ‘resisting arrest’ is one that has been tried and true for law enforcement.
    Fortunately, the public push for mandatory body cameras on officers is beginning to dispel the smoke and mirrors that surround these frequent cases.
    For one officers, his lies about a suspect resisting have been contradicted by his own body camera – and he is now facing down thirty years in prison.

    Las Vegas officer Richard Scavone is the latest liar to be added to the long list of officers who have attempted to bury their crimes under a false narrative.
    Last January, Scavone stopped a woman near the Las Vegas Strip who he believed to be loitering for the purpose of prostitution.
    According to Scavone, once approached the woman became violent, and a struggle ensued in which Scavone became physical with the woman – even claiming she reached into her bra, implying she was armed.
    However, after the woman made a formal complaint of excessive force, a detective made a brutal but unsurprising discovery.
    After viewing the body camera footage, the unnamed detective revealed that Scavone had in fact quickly handcuffed the woman after exiting his patrol car despite having no probable cause to arrest her.




    Scavone proceeded to violently abuse the woman, throwing her onto the ground before slamming her head not one but three times into his vehicle, even while she begged for mercy and told him, “You’re abusing me for no reason.”
    Finally, he failed to read the woman her Miranda rights, which would prove to be the final error in a litany of unprofessional actions that would result in all charges being dropped.
    Scavone has since been terminated, and is now being charged with civil rights violations and falsifying a police report.


    The detective found Scavone made four false statements in his report, as well as making an unfounded arrest and excessive force. We can only hope he is rightfully convicted and put behind bars, where he can never again think his authority will shield him from the heinous actions he is clearly capable of committing.

    No, I don’t know where this is from, when it happened or what the outcome was. I stole it from Mr ORSM (NSFW) who I suspect steals as much $#@! from me as I do from him. It’s all good.

    And then after posting, Irish sends me the story:

    CAPE CORAL, Fla. – A video shows a woman and man arguing at Dixie Roadhouse early Sunday morning when a police officer approaches them to break up the fight, violently throwing the woman to the ground.

    The woman appears to be knocked out. Many people expressed concern about the use of excessive force on Facebook where the original video was posted. Others said they believed the officer’s response was justified.

    A spokesperson with the Cape Coral Police Department said the officer was placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. The findings of CCPD’s internal investigation will be released to the public, a spokesperson said. There was no comment on the expected length of the investigation and the department will not release the officer’s name.

    The department released a statement Sunday that said:

    “The agency maintains the responsibility to our community to protect our citizens and officers which unfortunately at times, involves the use of physical force.

    “If it is determined through this investigation that these actions were inappropriate, we will hold ourselves accountable.”

    On March 14th, 5PM, Cape Coral Police released a statement on their social media page. The video below comes from their YouTube.



    Cape Coral Mayor Marni Sawicki weighed in Monday, saying it’s far too soon to pass judgment on the officer’s actions.

    Police officer pleads guilty to impregnating 14-year-old girl

    LOWELL, N.C. - A Lowell police officer pleaded guilty Thursday to impregnating a 14-year-old girl.

    James Blair will spend up to 19 years in prison for statutory rape. He will also have to wear an ankle monitor for the rest of his life, as well as register as a sex offender.

    The 14-year-old's mother was in the courtroom during the plea and sentencing. She spoke out after court, but WSOC-TV is not identifying her or showing her face in order to protect her daughter.

    "I'm happy with what happened in there, because he kept contacting my daughter through jail,” the mother said.

    She said it has been a tough year for her family after she told WSOC-TV that Blair volunteered to mentor her daughter, but eventually she learned he'd had inappropriate contact with her daughter in his police car and at his home.

    "My daughter is going through so much she's really hurt. He manipulated my daughter, he manipulated my family," she said. "My family is upside down, but we're trying to pick up the pieces and trying to move on."

    She is working to forgive Blair, and she's preparing to welcome the baby.

    "My heart is so broken. We got this new baby coming. I'm going to love this baby," the mother said.

    She believes Blair may have done the same thing to others while working with police.

    “In my heart, I know there's other victims,” the mother said. “Please come forth so we can put an end to all of this.”

    WSOC-TV reporter Ken Lemon broke the story in September on Twitter.

    Blair, 51, was taken into custody after being arrested at the teen's house. SBI agents were there talking to the family when Blair showed up, officials said.

    Blair was charged with one count of statutory rape and more charges will follow, officials said. His bond was set at $1 million.

    “My heart was broken,” the girl's mother told WSOC-TV after Blair was charged.

    She said Blair volunteered to mentor her children. She said she was reluctant at first, but then agreed to it because he was a police officer.

    Blair and the woman's daughter had been texting on her phone, the mother said.

    She said she then discovered text messages indicating that he took advantage of her daughter.

    "He tore my life apart," the mother said.

    She said the veteran officer came to her home asking to connect with her 14-year-old daughter, who had run away before, and her sibling.

    "To show them, ‘Hey, policemen are good,’” the mother said.

    Blair would visit often and even took them on a trip.

    Then the mother discovered text messages that indicated her daughter was pregnant and that Blair was the father.

    One of messages, which was in the hands of the SBI, states, "If you keep that baby, I'm done and you know it."

    Another said, "Do whatever you wanna do, just remember I love you and name it after me."

    She went to Gaston County police, and they contacted the district attorney. He asked the SBI to investigate.

    “I did meet with him. I told him how bad he broke my heart. How he betrayed my family," the mother said.

    She said Blair had inappropriate contact with her daughter at his home and in his patrol car, and told WSOC-TV that he confessed to her.

    "He told me he took her virginity. He told me it was his baby. He told me things happened and he said he was so sorry. And he kept saying please forgive him,” she said.

    She said then Blair asked her to do something that she considered unimaginable.

    "'Get rid of the baby or I've lost my life. I've lost my life.' How do I kill a baby? I don't kill no baby. I don't believe in abortion,” the mother said.

    Blair has been on medical leave for the past 80 days, which started before the investigation began.

    The girl's mother said she may not have known what was going on if she didn't read it on her phone.

    So instead of having him work shoveling horse stalls, or some such, and pay for the child he created the taxpayers will pick that bill up on top of the P.I.C. fees. Justice!
