THIN BLUE LINE: Florida trooper arrested a cop, then was stalked & harassed by the Thin Blue Line | Police State USA

Apologists apologize for bad cops by saying they’re just a a bad apple — nevermind that the idiom of bad apple actually means “1 bad ruins them all”, because you barrel apples, and 1 bad apple in the barrel ruins every apple. NEVERMIND THAT.

It looks like we finally have a quantifiable ratio of good cop to bad cop — and it looks that the bad cops are well over a 100:1 ratio of the good cops.

This woman dared to arrest a speeder who gave chase for 6 minutes. He was a cop. She had to eventually move away in fear of her life. Gang stalking. It’s a thing. Thin Blue line at work.

The cop she arrested’s name is FAUSTO LOPEZ, AGE 35. He made excuses, then seemingly hid behind the blue line.

Gee, will I get harassed for posting this, Fausto?

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: RAW: Dallas Cops Shoot Unarmed Mentally Ill Man Standing in the Street!!

Even if the guy had a knife and lunged at the cops, they should still be tried for murder.  A trained professional can do nothing but kill a person in the easiest possible way? These are not heroes, these are cowards.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS: Police perform house-to-house raids in Watertown MA ripping innocent families from their homes at gunpoint

You know what’s worse than 3 people dead and 176 injured? Millions of people thinking they have constitutional rights, but finding out they actually don’t.

And a right that the government can selectively take away when it feels like it? That is not a right. At that point, it’s simply a privilege. 

Pointing a gun at somebody IS violence. This is violence against citizenry. At this point, it’s almost a collective punishment for allowing a terrorist to attack.

The worst part is how many people are lined up saying this is okay — Americans have completely and utterly forgotten what freedom is supposed to be.

They now just want a security force that keeps the maximum bodies alive, regardless of consequence to free will.

Fuck that, and Fuck Boston, city of pussies. From the great boston tea party of the 1770s to the pussydom of today, there’s no city in the country that’s pissed harder on its own legacy of freedom. 

Adding extra insult to all this? The raids made no difference. The suspect wasn’t in a house, and was found by civilian tips. The police made little difference. This was about training people to obey Big Brother.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Philly Cop Found Not Guilty for Punching Woman on Camera

Fucking ridiculous. That is all.

Let us remember Philadelphia Police Lt. Jonathan Josey as the violent thug that he is.

Let s remember Judge Patrick Dugan as the judge who ruled police can punch us in the face if we are holding a beer.

TASER THURSDAY: Officer shoots 10-year-old boy with Taser for refusing to clean cop car

At first you think, “maybe the kid spit on his car or did something that would require cleaning”, but no.

This is a piece of shit cop who went to a career day at school, asked kids if they wanted to clean his car, then tasered the one kid who didn’t want to.

Then didn’t get him medical attention after he blacked out.

So-called officer Chris Webb of the New Mexico Department Of Public Safety should be publicly shamed, fired, and barred from any position of power ever again.

His name is CHRIS WEBB. He should be in jail.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Key evidence in Maricopa County Jail death suit of Deborah Braillard ‘destroyed’

When will Joe Arpaio’s despotic rule end? This guy needs to drop dead.

Her medical form was dated after she went to the hospital.
A videotape was erased.
Her phone calls were erased.
Written guard testimony  was destroyed.
Her diabetic bracelet “disappeared”.

State-sponsored murder, couresy of Joe Arpaio.

VIDEO: Problem Cop Richard Jouppi Punches Wheelchair-Bound 50-Yr-Old Repeatedly In Face

A drunkard threatens to throw a jacket, and slightly slaps a cop in the face…
…vs a cop punching a man in a wheelchair 3 times in a row, and throwing him backward into the ground.

A bit disproportionate, especially considering the cop is supposed to be sober, good, and one who deescalates a situation and stops harm.

Lovely that he threatens the person he was supposedly protecting too.

Turns out, this cop is already a bad cop. He’d already signed an agreement stating if he fucked up again, he’d be fired, after tipping off a sex criminal in direct violation of a department’s interests. He lied about how many times he hit the man in the wheelchair on the report. And they dropped the charges against Drunken Wheelchair Man as well. They probably would have had a good case against Drunken Wheelchair Man if Asshole Officer Richard Jouppi HADN’T gone overboard and lied about it.

Of course if a camera wasn’t around, the cop’s lies would have stood and court and been sustained in a conviction. Nobody is safe from police lies as long as are deemed a magical truth by any judge.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Deputy Shoots Fleeing Jaywalker Jonathan Cuevas 4 Times In Back, then walks up and finishes him off [VIDEO INCLUDED]

Yup. Jaywalking = death sentence. You can see it in the video. A man running away is not a threat, and certainly a man that’s been shot in the back 4 times is not a threat either.

Supposedly they found a gun on him, but there were none of his fingerprints on him. Doesn’t matter if he did have a gun — carrying a gun is our constitutional right. 

Imagine how much more this happened before we had surveillance cameras everywhere — back when the violent crime rate was higher than it is today.

Isn’t it funny how the cop’s name is protected from the public, but people who are arrested are a matter of public record? One set of laws for us, another set of laws for them.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Sheriff Deputy Hits 19-year-old in Head with Gun – Surveillance Video Shows Vicious Attack

…And then the teen (who had committed no crime before the cops decided to mess with him) spent 4 months in jail based on a struggle the cop  made up…. He went to jail 4 months for “assaulting” an officer so bad that a gun “went off” in the struggle. But oops. Caught on camera. It was the cop doing the assaulting, and even if the kid had gotten in a physical fight with the cop, it is no excuse to walk up and sucker-pistol whip someone so recklessly that a gun shoots in a random direction.

Where were the tasers again?

Yea.. these kids seemed like stupid pranksters, but now they are a waste of our tax dollars instead. I hope he wins the $10M lawsuit. Corporal Donald Taylor should get the fate that awaits cops who go to prison. This is injustice.

TASERS: Chicago cops Taser 8-month pregnant woman for parking violation

What. The. Fuck.

They tasered her for trying to “take off” – but they were ticketing her for parking in a handicapped space she wasn’t supposed to be in, so was she supposed to just stick around in the space she was ticketed for?

Her crime? Ripping up the ticket. This is a parking ticket. This is not a situation to use a taser, which not only can kill a person, but also can affect the unborn child.

She was never actually a threat to anybody. This should be a huge fucking lawsuit. And the superintendent’s excuse?  “You can’t always tell whether somebody is pregnant.”

What a load of shit. Pregnant or not, the only sensible policy is that tasers be used in place of actually shooting someone. And if your’e going to tell me that shooting someone for ripping up a ticket is valid, you really don’t belong in America.

Yet another story that’s something I’ve never quite heard of before, and involves, of course, a person of color.

And oh, they also dislocated her boyfriend’s elbow after he sensibly tried to stop near-lethal force against his girlfriend & child.

FREEDOM: Police Preemptively Raid Apartment & Arrest Activists Ahead of NATO Summit

USA likes to espouse itself as being the freest country in the world, defender of life and liberty.

Yet people are pre-emptively arrested for wanting to exercise their first amendment rights, 25% of all prisoners on planet earth are in our jail system, we have the highest imprisonment rate, and have killed tons of civilians in our various oil wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya).

America’s dead. Perhaps a better use of everyone’s energy is to figure out how to get the fuck out of America, because our “freedom” is mostly based on economics, not principles of actual liberty.

Fuck Chicago Police (for the 10,000th time).

But fuck america for allowing this to happen, and fuck americans for voting in leaders like Bush and Obama who only decrease total freedom, and for having no backbone to fight this bullshit.

POLICE BRUTALITY: 85 shots: US cops use more ammo per man than Germans per year

Slightly confusing, but what the headline really means is “there are many instances where police used more bullets against 1 person than Germany used in an entire year against all criminals in the country”.

Now, if you extrapolate out the fact that the U.S. population is almost 4 times that of Germany’s, the real number to compare is not 85 shots, but about 340 shots.

Contrast to America, where *to stop a reckless driver* last year, police fired over 110 shots, including shooting 7 innocent bystanders. We routinely shoot unarmed people 40-90 times.

Yeah…. It’s not just our larger population at work. When our police use more bullets in a single incident than a country previously associated with fascism does all year — it gives one major pause at how fucked up and broken our system is, and how piss-poor our over-militarized, trigger-happy police operate. 

Not making assumptions here. I’ve worked them them, eaten lunch with them, and heard them talk about how they want someone to cause them to have a chance to shoot them. It’s sickening.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Kelly Thomas video: Homeless man beaten and tasered to death as he cried for help

Freshly released: Actual video of police killing a homeless man. The video is FORTY MINUTES IN LENGTH, with TWENTY MINUTES OF BRUTALITY.

If 6 officers couldn’t take this guy down in less than 20 minutes, none of them deserve to keep their job.

For once, the pigs are actually charged with murder and manslaughter. But wait. Only 2 of the 6 officers were actually charged. Seems to be that if you mindlessly dogpile onto an existing situation, you’re just fine. They never charge everyone who actually did it.

“I just started smashing his face to hell” -one of the officers

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Justice for Anastasio Hernandez Rojas

I remember when this happened.

The guy had meth in his blood, therefore it’s okay for a group of taxpayer-funded thugs to murder him in cold blood while he screams for help, right?

The audio was released before. PBS just released the video. Unlike Rodney King, this guy died. Unlike Rodney King, there were twice as many officers surrounding this guy.

And here it is – watch your tax dollars being used to murder a man. Now on video. (Of course they tried to confiscate said video.)

THIN BLUE LINE: No Good Cops Go Unpunished When They Stop a Beatdown

Bad cops are “just a few bad apples”?  Kinda like how just a few of the Germans were bad during WW2, eh?  Pointed out in the comments is that the phrase “a few bad apples” comes from the origin whereby a few bad apples sealed in a barrel full of good apples will ruin all the other apples. The whole figure of speech of “A few bad apples”, as commonly used, is incorrect. A few bad apples after the fact means your whole barrel went rotten.

I did not realize this. 

So anyway… Here’s what happens when you’re a good apple. If you literally stop police from beating up an innocent person, as a cop, your job will be put on the line. Her department is calling her “psychologically unfit for duty” and trying to fire her. 

She’s also the first lesbian cop there.

So if you wonder why people think cops are assholes — look no further than stories like this compared and contrasted to the neverending constant barrage of abuse of power performed by those with badges.

Funny how they are bringing up old bad things she supposedly did as reasons to get rid of her – reasons only brought up after this. I’ve seen such tactics used before, both in the news and in real life. :/

JOURNALISM VS. WAR ON TERROR: Obama’s personal role in a journalist’s imprisonment – Salon.com

This is pretty damning. Journalist releases something USA and Yemen lied to their people about. Wikileaks then verifies it. Yemen imprisons journalist as if he’s a terrorist for saying something America doesn’t like. Local leaders and Amnesty International get mad.

Pardon is drafted up. Obama then literally called Yemen when they had the pardon written up, in order to ensure that this journalist stay in jail and the pardon disappear. Which happens after the phone call.

This is direct action. This is not Congress’s fault, this is not Obama being a puppet of vast machinery he has no control of. 

And oh, we still have secret prisons just like under the Bush Administration. Obama just tricked Obama-supporters into thinking he stopped Bush’s practice. He did not. As usual, Obama continues Bush’s practices, but more secretively. 

And at this point, is The New York Times even worth wiping one’s ass on? This is the paper that knew we were being wiretapped by the government, and sat on the story for a year. Among many other things, New York Times is now, to me, the least reliable major newspaper in existence.

THIN BLUE LINE: Excessive force lawsuit filed following Fermilab shooting

Yup. If you are a 17 year old passenger in a car that sideswipes an off  duty cop, the cop can chase you down, fire indiscriminately in a car full of 5 teenagers, and NOT GET CHARGED FOR SHOOTING YOU AND  PUTTING YOU IN THE HOSPITAL IN CRITICAL CONDITION.

 Is it any wonder people don’t respect american authority? American authority does not submit to law. They are simply thugs who do what they want — and the system lets them, which is why they do it.

No charges. For shooting an unarmed teenage passenger in the back after chasing down their car in road rage. The officer is not even named. Fucking ridiculous.

RACISM: Unarmed Marine shot to death in front of daughters by O.C. deputy outside school

Why did these two daughters have to watch their father – a black male – get shot to death?

Because the police were concerned for their safety!

You see, a black man with children in a truck. That’s suspicious. Cause for concern. 

The officers clearly had no choice but to shoot this man, after he forced their hand. This is a good use of our tax dollars. {this paragraph is sarcasm}

How much longer are we going to take this shit?

All caught on video. Because smart black people know that catching it on video is the only way anybody is ever going to believe anything (if you’re black).

2 years in solitary confinement without seeing a court date, having to pull your own tooth yourself?

Does that sound like Saudi Arabia? North Korea? Turkey? Iran? Nope, that’s America.

 People – don’t tell the government you think your friends are suicidal. They are not your friend in that situation.

 (Remember the suicidal guy on the edge of a bridge that they tased off into the river? Or the suicidal guy who was going to stab himself that they shot to death?)

The police are NOT here to help us anymore.
