British police may not have the same reputation for brutality as American police do, but like our cops, they sure seem to think they are above the law. Police in the city of Coventry have apparently started breaking into homes without any kind of warrant. The reason? So they can let homeowners know how easy it would be for burglars to break in.

In einem Kopp Exklusiv vorliegenden internen Schreiben des Stuttgarter Landeskriminalamts heißt es, dass in Deutschland derzeit »Sexualstraftaten begrifflich verschleiert« werden.
erfasst hat das Rundschreiben der »Arbeitsbereich Kriminalpsychologie« des Stuttgarter LKA.
In dem Schreiben wird dargestellt, warum Orientalen und Nordafrikaner kein Schuldbewusstsein haben, wenn sie Frauen und Kinder sexuell belästigen.
Die »sexuelle Belästigung im Sinne einer verbalen und auch physischen Übergriffigkeit« sei in ihren Kulturkreisen »sehr verbreitet«.
Und in vielen Herkunftsländern von Asylbewerbern sei Vergewaltigung kein Straftatbestand oder erst jüngst zu einem solchen erklärt worden.
Marion County, FL — In August of 2014, multiple deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s office conducted a drug bust. During the bust, Derrick Price ran from deputies Jesse Terrell, Trevor Fitzgerald, James Amideo, Cody Hoppel and Adam Crawford. However, once he realized he could not outrun the pickup truck, he quickly stopped, put his hands up, and laid face down on the ground — completely surrendering.
Upon reaching the unarmed, nonviolent, completely compliant, and prostrate man, the deputies proceeded to unleash a furious beating composed of kicks to the head, knees to the body, and countless blows from fists.
Price was left severely beaten and bloodied in the parking lot after the assault. The deputies would go on to lie and claim that Price was combative and resisting. Luckily for Price, however, the entire gang beating was captured on video. Continue reading »
El Cajon, CA — In yet another tragic case of an officer fearing for his life from a fleeing car, a woman and a dog have been killed.
Early Saturday morning, police spotted a stolen red Toyota and pulled over the vehicle. Inside the car were three men, a woman and a dog. As the officer approached the vehicle, it sped off before he could get to them and led police on a high-speed chase. Continue reading »
Sparta, MO — Police Chief Andrew Spencer resigned this week after it was revealed that he shot and killed an innocent dog that was in a cage and meant no one any harm. To make matters even worse, he took the puppy to a firing range and killed it there because he did not want to deal with finding its home.
Spencer found the dog and managed to get it into a cage using a catcher pole. He then wrote in his report that he had planned to take the dog to a shelter where it would be “destroyed,” but then he got another call about a car accident so he decided to do it himself. Continue reading »
Six of the Cleveland police officers involved in the 137-shot, execution-style fusillade that killed an unarmed couple, have become “gypsy cops” eligible to be hired by other departments — which is to say that they have been terminated without facing criminal prosecution. Six others have been given suspensions ranging from 21 to 30 days, and a thirteenth has been fired, reports ABC News. Continue reading »
Cologne-style sex attacks and thefts happened on New Year’s Eve in 12 other German states, according to a leaked federal police report cited by media. German investigators said the assaults represented a “new form of criminality.”
Local broadcasters WDR and NDR, and the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, reported that the attacks were much more widespread than earlier thought, citing a confidential document prepared for the Interior Ministry by the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA).
The suspects were men aged 17-30 who were of Moroccan, Algerian or Tunisian origin, and the victims were nearly always female, the document stated. Continue reading »
British Columbia, CA — Kyle Lydell Canty decided last year that he would flee to Canada after he says, police in his native country were targeting black people for extermination.
While in Canada, Canty filed for refugee status.
According to VICE, at an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing in October, where he represented himself, Canty argued that black people are “being exterminated at an alarming rate” in the US, and presented exhibits meant to demonstrate the human rights conditions in his home country, including videos of his own and others’ experiences of being harassed by cops, various news reports, and the handbook from the UN refugee agency UNHCR on determining refugee status.

A Pennsylvania state constable fatally shot a 12-year-old girl while serving an eviction notice to her father in Duncannon, Pennsylvania, on Monday. The constable, who was delivering the notice from a district court, shot the father in the arm, but the bullet passed through him, striking and killing the young girl.
According to police, Donald B. Meyer, 57, was behind on rent, and District Judge Daniel McGuire had issued an eviction order that Meyer reportedly failed to appeal. Pennsylvania State Constable Clarke Steele, a law enforcement officer tasked with carrying out orders from the judicial system, came to enforce the eviction order. Police allege Meyer first opened the front door, then shut it. He then reportedly re-opened the door armed with a rifle, pointing it at Steele.
In response, Steele fired his gun at Meyer, but the bullet exited through Meyer’s left arm, travelling to Ciara, Meyer’s 12-year-old daughter, who was standing behind him. Ciara was home sick from school on Monday. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Continue reading »
As if the police in several countries would all at the same time start covering up sexual assaults without being ordered to do so.
Swedish police are accused of covering up mass sexual assaults allegedly committed by refugees at a music festival. It follows claims that gangs of youths, mostly from Afghanistan, molested girls as young as 11 or 12 at the annual event.
According to Dagens Nyheter newspaper, an internal police report on the 2015 ‘We Are Stockholm’ festival stated that “the problem of young men rubbing themselves up against young girls returned as in previous years.”
“These are so-called refugee youths [mostly] from Afghanistan…the [group] was also responsible for several fights during the evening,” police wrote.
Noting that the youngest victims were only 11 or 12, an unnamed officer admitted that he would “never have let my own daughter [go to] the festival if I knew what happened.” Continue reading »
The Counted is a special Guardian project to record all people killed by police in the United States this year.
Although the number of cops charged with murder or manslaughter sharply spiked last year, not a single officer was convicted for these unjustified deaths. With less cops killed in the line of duty in 2015, the number of people killed by police increased yet again.
The accumulated number of people killed by police in the U.S. last year remains between 986 and 1,200, with The Guardian currently totaling 1,138 victims. Although many disagree on the exact number of fatalities caused by cops, most concur that 2015 saw an escalation in both the total of people killed by police and the number of officers charged with murder or manslaughter.

Britain’s College of Policing has trained 270 police officers from Saudi Arabia despite the state’s poor human rights record, which includes torture and the death penalty.
Human rights groups are demanding the college, which is a sub-body of the Home Office, disclose the kind of training it has given the Gulf state. But the educational body is refusing to release this information, while insisting that the training meets top international human rights standards. Continue reading »
This week, many German citizens were appalled to hear the details of what allegedly occurred on New Year’s Eve in Cologne.
According to eyewitness accounts and a number of apparent victims, hundreds of “Arab or North African” men engaged in coordinated sexual assaults and robberies across Germany with attacks reported in Cologne, Hamburg, and Stuttgart.
“These people that we welcomed just three months ago with teddy bears and water bottles … started shooting at the cathedral dome and started shooting at police,” one hotel bouncer who witnessed the melee in Cologne said. “Ms Merkel where are you? What do you say? This scares us!,” read a sign carried by protesters in demonstrations held on Tuesday. Continue reading »
When a Kansas SWAT team raided the house of Robert and Addie Harty, as well as their 7-year-old daughter and their 13-year-old son, they claimed it was all because of purchases of gardening supplies.
The April 2012 raid of the couple, both former CIA analysts, began with pounding on their front door, and continued with Harte laying face down, with guns pointed at him. Continue reading »
A nineteen-year-old engineering student and a 55-year-old mother of five were shot and killed by Chicago police answering an emergency report of a domestic disturbance — but the incident already echoes a spate of impossible-to-justify killings at the hands of Chicago PD. Relatives and friends of the two victims, as well as a fed-up public, are justifiably calling the suspicious circumstances of the killings into question, especially as answers from police have been difficult to come by.

Des Moines, IA — Imagine for a moment that you were open carrying a pistol in a public space and all of the sudden, you accidentally squeeze off a round.
There are two possible scenarios that would take place; the first one being that police return fire and you are killed. The second, less lethal result would be your inevitable arrest and charges of public endangerment, unlawful discharge, illegal use of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, terrorism, or a myriad of other charges associated with sending a deadly projectile hurling through walls and near the heads of innocent people. You would immediately be facing fines, jail time, probation, and firearms restrictions. Continue reading »
And the punchline is that just as expected, Europe’s Patriot Act has finally taken shape: according to a proposed amendment, the French state-of-emergency police powers, such as to conduct warrantless searches and order house arrests, will be unconditionally shieleded from court challenges.
In other words, a handful of government bureaucrats will soon be above any and all legal “checks and balances“, and will be provided absolute power to decide the fate of virtually any French citizen without due or any process. This is precisely what took place for decades in the Soviet Union, and why the west was so proud to provide its own citizens with those core civil rights which the soviets never enjoyed. And now it is the turn of the “democratic” western powers to unleash their own mini USSR on their citizens. You know, in the name of “preventing terrorism.”
Back on September 11, Zero Hedge accurately predicted not only the terrorist events which unfolded in Paris on November 13, but also the resulting aftermath with uncanny accuracy.
We said that “as the need to ratchet up the fear factor grows, expect more such reports of asylum seekers who have penetrated deep inside Europe, and whose intentions are to terrorize the public. Expect a few explosions thrown in for good effect” and we added that “since everyone knows by now “not to let a crisis go to waste” the one thing Europe needs is a visceral, tangible crisis, ideally with chilling explosions and innocent casualties. We expect one will be provided on short notice.”
It was provided exactly two months later. But it was the “fine print” in out forecast that was most troubling: Continue reading »
Graphic new cellphone video has emerged which appears to show cops shooting dead a 23-year-old cyclist as he lay handcuffed on the ground.

Ferguson, MO — A petulant public servant is now playing the role of ‘victim’ after he pointed his AR-15 at Free Thought Project live streamer, Rebel Z, aka John Zeigler.
The entire incident was caught on film, showing St. Ann police officer, Ray Albers with his gun raised pointing it directly at Zeigler, who was live streaming at the time.
“Oh my God, gun raised, gun raised,” stated Zeigler.
“My hands are up bro, my hands are up,” he says before Albers responds, “I’m going to f***ing kill you, get back, get back!”

When Albers is asked for his name he responds, “go f*ck yourself.” Continue reading »
A Chicago Police Department commander accused of jamming a gun down a suspect’s mouth during a 2013 encounter was found not guilty of aggravated battery and misconduct amid tense times between city police and residents.
Judge Diane Cannon ruled Monday that Commander Glenn Evans, a 28-year veteran of the department, was not guilty of accusations levied by Rickey Williams, 25, stemming from their encounter in January 2013. Williams said in addition to the gun in his mouth, Evans, 53, also held a Taser to his groin and threatened to kill him.
“I was gargling, trying to get words out, but I couldn’t say anything because the gun was so far down my throat,” Williams said of the encounter with Evans, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Los Angeles, CA — Thanks to Los Angeles’ finest, Walter DeLeon has lost a quarter of his skull, almost all his eyesight, the ability to walk, and his life is in shambles.
In June of this year, DeLeon, 49, was on his regular evening walk to a nearby park when LAPD Officer Cairo Palacios “feared for his life” and shot him in the head.
DeLeon was not armed, he did not attack the officer, nor did he say or do anything that would have been construed by a normal person to be aggressive behavior. However, the dastardly Palacios and his partner perceived ‘imminent danger’ because DeLeon had a towel wrapped around his hand to wipe the sweat from his face on his walk. Continue reading »

On 10 May last year, officer Jenchesky Santiago, from Prince George’s County, outside Baltimore, was on patrol in a residential neighbourhood in the town of Bowie. Continue reading »

This is what is perceived/known by someone on the ground in Turkey. English is one of the primary languages in Turkey, which explains why this is so well written
Jim. Took your advice and moved to a public facility. I don’t live close to a town so this one is an irregular opportunity. I may miss some developments going forwards, but will do my best to stay on top of it.
