There is hope.  The court just made it clear that videotaping cops in action is protected by the first amendment.  Although this is a Maryland case, it could become a landmark.

But only if you show the cops I.D. Otherwise, protocol is to beat you to death in front of your family.

Well, at least your family has the video to remember you by.

Police negligence suits on the rise. But wait, now with new twist. Now the cops sue you for negligence when they shoot dead your loved ones in your own home.

"I'm actually offended that people would think that police officers don't have civil rights to use civil law on their behalf. Everyone else does," he said. "If this case brings an awareness that people need to be completely, utterly honest with 911, and if people become aware that police officers have rights just like everybody else, I'm happy. Whatever else people think about me, I could care less."

Long said he and his client have no intentions of trying to bilk Kemal's mother-in-law. He says she should have just forwarded his letter about the deputy's claim to her insurance company rather than waiting for a lawsuit to be filed and then finding an outside lawyer to fight it.

A scathing report on these out of control officials. Now what happens to the bastards?

After a 16-month investigation of the Albuquerque Police Department, the federal government reports that its officers routinely violated the Constitutional rights of residents, unjustly beating them, shocking them with tasers, and even shooting them dead. 21 fatal shootings were reviewed. "Officers were not justified under federal law in using deadly force in the majority of those incidents," the report states. "Albuquerque police officers shot and killed civilians who did not pose an imminent threat of serious bodily harm or death to the officers or others."

...Albuquerque police needlessly extinguished someone's life on at least 11 occasions. One unarmed man was shot through the chest as he lay motionless on his back. "No police officer has been prosecuted for unlawful killing," The Economist notes, "yet the city has had to pay out $24m in legal settlements to victims’ relatives."

The TV news report on this incident featured a witness who said the guy was shot numerous times, including four in the chest after he was down.  Cops just itch for a chance to take out a cop killer.

He was shot by a US Marshal, not a deputy.  Federal LEOs have lots of spare ammo for training these days.  Local agencies, not so much.

As for how many times shot - a key factor is that when an LEO opens fire, it usually results in an empty magazine.  The exception to this is an LEO with relevant military experience.

It would appear the Tongan Crips actually trace their origins back to L.A., not Tonga.

I am having a hard time finding a definitive statement, but it appears he did not kill the marshals shot in 2007, or anyone else for that matter.

Not that any of this matters anymore.

Maybe she got what she was after.  After all, the neighbor did say she was suicidal.  The best way to implement a suicide by cop is to wave a gun around after they've told you to drop it.

Here's where the trouble starts, when you start thinking you have the toughest job out there.  Well you don't, get over yourself and start acting human again.

"We can't stop," Terrell said. "We're called for a purpose. The members of this team want to be here."

..."I've talked to the D.A., I've talked to the GBI," Terrell said. "I've given them the whole information and they say there's nothing else we can do. There's nothing to investigate, there's nothing to look at. Given the information given, GBI's SWAT team would have done the exact same thing - they'd have used the exact same scenario to enter the house."

Our police officers are all CLEET certified, so they are real police officers,” Payne said.

What the fuck does that even mean?

Besides, the guns are real, the badges are real, the blue uniforms are real, but police officers are an illusion. 

It's about time that LEOs realize they are only "real" because we say they are.

The Devil seems to be down in Georgia.

Seems the toddler grenading sheriff has a bit of history with killing off his civillians.


...the cop who shot Ayers, hadn’t taken the series of firearms training classes required for his certification as a police officer. It gets worse. It turns out that Harrison also had received zero training in the use of lethal force.

He wasn’t authorized to make arrests or to carry a gun. Yet somehow he had been given a position on a narcotics task force

...how little professional accountability there had been for the death of Jonathan Ayers. The cop who killed him was fired, but only after it was revealed that he lacked the training. One other law enforcement official was fired for lying about the training. No one was disciplined for the actual killing of Ayers. Rickman, Terrell, and the other sheriff who oversees the task force were all reelected.

And remember kids, don't be one of those veterans everyone is so concerned about.

In the Indianapolis suburbs, officers said they needed a mine-resistant vehicle to protect against a possible attack by veterans returning from war.

Had a rather lively conversation with a local deputy about the MRAPs and mil-spec gear used by the cops these days. The gist of my side was -"you'll have to get out of that tin can eventually" and "just because you dress like a commando doesn't mean you know how to fight against one".

He had the butt hurt.

Fortunately his partner was someone I served with years ago, otherwise I probably would have chosen not to yank his chain.
