Worse than Criminals — Cops Use Asset Forfeiture to Steal $53K from an Orphanage and a Church:

The criminal depths to which police will sink to bolster their budgets, apparently have no limit, as a recent case of police theft in Oklahoma illustrates. To keep society safe, sheriff’s deputies in Muskogee County, Oklahoma robbed a church and an orphanage of $53,000. Real American heroes.

Eh Wah, 40, a refugee from Burma, who became a US citizen more than a decade ago, was traveling with the cash to deliver it to the intended recipients when he was targetted by modern day, state-sanctioned pirates — for a broken tail light. Continue reading »

Little Known Fact: Police Drug Kits Test Positive With Just About Anything:

If you’ve ever found yourself on the wrong side of the law, there’s a good chance that you’ve encountered a field drug test before. It’s what the police use to test any suspicious looking substances you might have in your possession to see if they’re illegal drugs. And they are of course admissible in a court of law. What the cops won’t tell you however, is that these drug test kits are incredibly fallible, and there are plenty of innocent substances that can cause them to produce a false positive.

Several years ago the U.S. Marijuana Policy Project did a demonstration with the kits that the police use to put people in jail. The results were both enlightening and horrifying.

It all began with a 911 call on the evening of March 26, 2015. Andrew Musto, Choate’s boyfriend, told them the 53-year-old woman was suicidal, had a gun, and had been drinking, according to the civil lawsuit. Continue reading »

British Police Are Breaking Into Homes to Highlight Robbery Risk:

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.

Stuttgarter Landeskriminalamt warnt Mitarbeiter vor zugewanderten Sextätern:

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.

Cops Caught on Camera in Cowardly Gang-Style Beating of an Unarmed Man Lying Face Down:

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 »

Police Chief Resigns After Caging Family’s Puppy and Killing it at Shooting Range:

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.

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 »

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.

12-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed by Pennsylvania Law Enforcement in Her Home:

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 »

Swedish police accused of covering up sexual assaults committed by refugees at music festival

Swedish police accused of covering up sexual assaults committed by refugees at music festival:

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: people killed by police in the United States in 2015 – interactive:

The Counted is a special Guardian project to record all people killed by police in the United States this year.

Record Number of Cops Charged with Killing People in 2015 — Not a Single Officer Convicted:

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.
