The Police Cannot Be a Law Unto Themselves
Post Date: 2023-02-01 17:04:42 by Charles_Byrd
In 2020, during the weeks of protest and civil unrest that followed the murder of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, I argued that the problem of police violence and misconduct was a problem of democracy. And this week, in the wake of yet another police killing caught on camera, I think it’s worth saying, again, that the institution of American policing lies outside any meaningful democratic control. You can think of accountability for public institutions in two ways: on the back end and on the front end. Click for Full Text!

Illinois Town Will Pay $12 Million to Family After SWAT Officer Shot 12-Year-Old in Kneecap
Post Date: 2023-02-01 16:32:18 by Charles_Byrd
The city of Richton Park, Illinois, will pay $12 million to settle a lawsuit stemming from a 2019 SWAT raid during which a police officer shot a 12-year-old boy in the kneecap, a lawyer for the boy's family announced today. The federal civil rights lawsuit, filed by Crystal Worship on behalf of her son Amir, alleged that SWAT team officers from the Country Club Hills and Richton Park police departments burst into their house on the night of May 26, 2019, throwing flashbangs and detaining the family, including Amir and his 13-year-old brother, at gunpoint.

LAPD Officers Tased a Confused, Terrified Man Who Then Died, All Over a Minor Car Collision
Post Date: 2023-01-20 00:48:53 by Charles_Byrd
A man died earlier this month after being Tased six times in less than a minute by Los Angeles police during a traffic incident. Now activists are demanding answers and changes to how, or even whether, police should respond to these types of calls. Body camera footage released a week ago from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) shows Keenan Darnell Anderson, 31, in pretty bad mental shape when police showed up at the scene of a car crash at a busy Venice intersection on January 3. According to the LAPD, officers were responding to a call of a hit-and-run, and witnesses said Anderson, driving a BMW, was responsible for the crash. Anderson was a 10th-grade English teacher in Washington, ...

Julie Hudson spent a week in a Pennsylvania jail because a police officer in Texas thought she looked like a robbery suspect. Hudson, a doctoral student at Holy Family University, had been told she had an outstanding warrant when she was turned down for a job she'd applied for. When she went to police to find out why, she was arrested on a warrant from Texas, a state she has never been to. It took seven days for police in Webster, Texas, to determine she wasn't the woman they were looking for. Why did they think she was? Click for Full Text!

Phoenix Police Sued Over Death of Mentally Ill Man in Their Custody
Post Date: 2023-01-06 00:25:35 by Charles_Byrd
Akeem Terrell had been behaving peculiarly at a party on New Year's Day in 2021, and did not cooperate with Phoenix, Arizona, police trying to arrest him after they ordered him to leave. He died in custody later that day. Now surviving family members of Terrell's are suing Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, the county itself, the city of Phoenix, and various officers involved in causing Terrell's death. The suit was filed last week in federal court in Arizona, suing over various alleged constitutional rights violations, and seeking compensatory and punitive damages and court costs.

Old Saybrook, Conn., Police Department Officer Josh Zarbo has been placed on administrative leave after being charged with computer crime. Zarbo ran the license plate of a woman he met at Walmart, where he was working security, and soon after that started following her on Instagram. Zarbo claims he ran her license plate because she seemed suspicious. But shortly before seeking that information, he texted a friend, "Bro I am gaming right now." That's apparently slang for trying to pick up women. Click for Full Text!

Private Security: An Effective Method to Prevent Being a Crime Victim
Post Date: 2022-12-22 15:44:01 by Charles_Byrd
In the face of rampant crime, many individuals and businesses turn to private security as an alternative to government protection. One example is the Karco gas station in Philadelphia, which has hired heavily armed guards from Pennsylvania S.I.T.E. Agents to patrol its premises. The guards are equipped with Kevlar vests and either AR-15s or shotguns, and the owner claims that since hiring the guards, the gas station has been free of loitering and other criminal activity. The failure of state police and the justice system to effectively protect citizens is what has led many people to turn to private security and the use of firearms for self-defense. In some states, restrictive gun control ...

Cop Fired for Offering a Homeless Man a S**t Sandwich Rehired by Nearby Town

Even when bad cops face consequences, police union rules often insulate them from punishment—even for "vile and disgusting" behavior. In 2016, officers with the San Antonio Police Department cleared a homeless encampment from a private parking lot. Matthew Luckhurst, a bike patrol officer involved in the effort, was trying to get the residents to clean up on their way out when he allegedly offered a homeless man a shit sandwich—literally, dog feces on bread.

Florida Officer Shoots and Kills Man Mid-Sentence for Refusing To Drop an Axe
Post Date: 2022-12-13 16:47:53 by Charles_Byrd
Newly released body-camera footage appears to show an unidentified Jacksonville, Florida, Sheriff's Office law-enforcement officer shooting and killing a man holding an axe after refusing an order to put it down and attempting to talk to the officer. The shooting happened in Jacksonville last April. According to First Coast News, police were called out by a report of a "mentally ill" man cutting power to people's homes and vandalizing them. Body camera footage shows an officer encountering Kevin Mahan, 43, on a property, standing behind some bushes. He was holding an axe, but seemingly alone and not threatening anybody. The officer approaches and orders Mahan several ...

This Principal Investigated a Sexting Incident. So the Police Charged Him With Possessing Child Porn.
Post Date: 2022-12-09 16:20:15 by Charles_Byrd
A Brush, Colorado, man is facing 12 years in prison for possessing child pornography. Even more fraught is that no one, including the government, thinks he had child pornography. At least not in any traditional sense. Bradley Bass allegedly ran afoul of state law when he was found with explicit images of a local girl. But the 32-year-old high school principal came to have those photos in the course of a school sexting investigation carried out as a part of his job. The girl says she isn't a victim of Bass' and both she and her parents have pled with law enforcement to stop the prosecution. Click for Full Text!

After Backlash, San Francisco Government Quickly Moves from Authorizing to Banning Police Using Robots to Kill
Post Date: 2022-12-08 18:17:33 by Charles_Byrd
Public backlash can lead government to reverse power overreaches, and to do so quickly. On Tuesday of last week, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to authorize police to use drones or robots to kill via remote control in the California city. Then, a week later — on Tuesday of this week, the board reversed course, voting to prohibit this siccing of killer robots or drones on people. The board voted 8-3 for the reversal — the same vote total by which the board the week before had approved the police using robots or drones to kill. Click for Full Text!

Paul Pelosi Is Attacked, So Naturally the Capitol Police Want More Money
Post Date: 2022-12-07 19:23:00 by Charles_Byrd
Never let a good crisis go to waste. This has been the organizing principle of the political elite during the turmoil, both real and manufactured, of the past couple of years. The federal government, using pandemic-induced fear, expanded tremendously during this time frame (read more on that here and here). This is indicative of a wider problem with bureaucracy called budget maximization. Bureaucrats act to maximize their respective budgets to obtain more power. This is more than likely a main driver of the massive budget deficits the federal government has been running over the past three fiscal years. Bureaucracies use excuses such as rising crime and increased deaths. To justify their ...

The Pandemic Is the Right Time to Defund the Police

The coronavirus has slowed much American police work, but the rate of police killings has remained relatively unchanged. Chandan Khanna/AFP/Getty Images The pandemic has slowed much American police work, but police are still working. “As of May 17, 375 people had been shot and killed by on-duty police officers in 2020—about the same rate as other recent years despite the coronavirus pandemic,” Wesley Lowery, who helped track killings at The Washington Post, observed on Tuesday. Just a day before, a 46-year-old black man named George Floyd was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer who pinned him to the ground, kneeling on his neck for five minutes. Floyd’s last ...

Cop Arrested for Terrorizing and Sexually Grooming Little Girl He Stalked on Minecraft
Post Date: 2020-05-24 00:00:55 by Deckard
Illustrating the sadistic and predatory nature of those who claim to “keep us safe,” for five years, Pasquale Salas terrorized a young girl he met on Minecraft. For much of that time Salas was a police officer. Not until he was caught in the act and arrested in 2019 did the Matagorda County Sheriff’s Office fire him. Last week, Salas pleaded guilty to federal charges of cyberstalking and sexual exploitation of a minor after prosecutors say he coerced a young girl into sending explicit videos and photos of herself to him and then threatening harm to she and her family once she tried to break it off. The girl, whose name is being withheld because she was a minor and a victim of ...
