Think that you cannot effect change? We all have a voice

This blog was not started to be vindictive. It was started after a grave injustice was meted out at the hands of corrupt police and it was birthed to effect change and bring justice to those who have been denied any. There have been times that this journey has brought me to anger; not only on my account but on the account of those I report on, but that has not been the primary goal of this blog. Below is the primary goal : 80% of NYPD cops are “Hesitant to aggressively fight crime” because of repercussions from the citizens they are sworn to protect. This comes from a city that paid out over $68 million in fiscal year 2019 to settle abuse lawsuits against the NYPD. It is good to see that cameras, phones and concerned citizens are finally putting a stop to the unbridled and rampant abuse by one of the nations most notorious police Dept. I am hopeful that with continued vigilance this trend away from injustice and violence will continue.

More than half of NYPD officers wish they never joined the force, according to a large internal survey.

An internal New York Police Department survey of nearly 6,000 officers found that 56% of NYPD cops say they wouldn’t become a police officer if they had a chance to do it all over again, according to the New York Post.

When asked if they feel the public disrespects them, 46% of officers believed they are disrespected versus 42% who didn’t believe so. The officers were asked if the public distrusts them, and 44% agreed while 41% disagreed. There were 73% of police poll participants who said the public does not have a good relationship with the NYPD.

A whopping 80% of NYPD officers, detectives, sergeants, lieutenants, and captains are hesitant to aggressively fight crime because of the ramifications of criminal liability, being sued, or being unfairly disciplined.

“My retirement date is next month,” said a 20-year veteran of the force. “I can’t wait to run out of here.”

Hero in Blue pulls gun on woman after road rage incident

This is the same guy who pulls you over on a dark highway. I am sure this is not his first incident, seeing the nature of the beast. Guess he just did it to the wrong person this time

“ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Prince George’s County police officer accused of pointing his duty weapon at another driver while off duty in Annapolis has been charged with assault and suspended without pay, county police announced Thursday.

Cpl. James Thornley was traveling home from work in his personal vehicle on Aug. 26 and was still in uniform when the alleged incident happened, police said in a news release. No one was injured.

Charging documents state that a woman reported that a truck cut off her vehicle on Route 50 and she got out to ask “Why are you trying to kill me?” after both vehicles left the highway, The Washington Post reported. Thornley pointed a firearm at her and threatened to shoot if she didn’t get back, charging documents state.

When Annapolis police interviewed Thornley at his home, he told officers that he saw a “blue Honda” driving aggressively, charging documents said. He told police that he brandished his firearm, pointed it in her direction and told her to get away.

Thornley is being held without bond. A call to an attorney listed in Thornley’s court records seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.

Do you think they are creating this police state for no reason?

The Los Angeles police department (LAPD) has directed its officers to collect the social media information of every civilian they interview, including individuals who are not arrested or accused of a crime, according to records shared with the Guardian.

A lawsuit charges that the Rodeo Drive task force has been stopping and arresting Black people without cause.

Copies of the “field interview cards” that police complete when they question civilians reveal that LAPD officers are instructed to record a civilian’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media accounts, alongside basic biographical information. An internal memo further shows that the police chief, Michel Moore, told employees that it was critical to collect the data for use in “investigations, arrests, and prosecutions”, and warned that supervisors would review cards to ensure they were complete.

The documents, which were obtained by the not-for-profit organization the Brennan Center for Justice, have raised concerns about civil liberties and the potential for mass surveillance of civilians without justification.

“There are real dangers about police having all of this social media identifying information at their fingertips,” said Rachel Levinson-Waldman, a deputy director at the Brennan Center, noting that the information was probably stored in a database that could be used for a wide range of purposes.”

Furthermore, when police obtain social media usernames it opens the door for officers to monitor an individual’s connections and “friends” online, creating additional privacy concerns. “It allows for a huge expansion of network surveillance,” said Levinson-Waldman, noting how police and prosecutors have previously used Facebook photos and “likes” to make dubious or false allegations of criminal gang activity.

Hamid Khan of the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition noted that the LAPD also shares data with federal law enforcement agencies through “fusion centers”, and has previously used “predictive policing” technologies that rely on data collected by officers in the field and which can criminalize communities of color.

“This is like stop and frisk,” he said, of the use of field interview cards. “And this is happening with the clear goal of surveillance.” The LAPD, he noted, has allowed officers to pose undercover to investigate groups, meaning officers can create fake social media accounts to infiltrate groups.

The death of Daniel Prude at the hands of laughing cops

More cops risking their lives everyday

This is a blatant disregard for human dignity and human life. This thuggery is not going to stop until we stop it. In the meantime any interaction you have with LEO puts your life in jeopardy. You risk your freedom or life any time you encounter a group of these thugs on the streets. Think I’m kidding ? Browse through this website for a while. Go to the search bar here and put in “Rape”; It gives whole new meaning to stop resisting. It is time to start fighting this thuggery on every level. As a society we need to have zero tolerance for jack booted bullies and bandits preying upon us. And don’t forget that it is not just the cops. They are the revenue arm of the “Justice” system. Without cops, high paid judges don’t get their check. Prosecutors, states attorneys and defense attorneys all lose their incomes without the heroes in blue bringing people into the system. The corporate jail system in this nation, which is worth mega Billion dollars, can’t profit and prosper if cops aren’t putting fresh fines and dollar bills in handcuffs and bringing them in. Enough is enough and the time is now to bring full scale resistance against the police state. If we can’t stop this now then we are destined to live in fear and subjugation in Perpetuity.

Douchebag cops at it again

I am starting to wonder if these cops are in on this

They are lighting the fuse on a shooting war

I don’t think that they can be that stupid

They would certainly be the ones to profit in a police state clamping down on civil dissent

” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies fatally shot Dijon Kizzee, a 29-year-old Black man, during a confrontation Monday afternoon in South LA, sparking protests at the scene.

The sheriff’s department says that at about 3:15 p.m. local time two deputies tried to stop Kizzee, who was riding a bicycle “in violation of vehicle codes.” When they approached him, he got off the bicycle and ran.

Sheriff’s Lt. Brandon Dean told reporters that deputies caught up to the suspect about a block away, and when they approached him, the man punched one of the deputies in the face and dropped items of clothing he had been carrying.

It was at that point deputies “noticed that inside the clothing items he dropped was a black semiautomatic handgun,” and that’s when both deputies opened fire, shooting the man “several” times, Dean said. Investigators recovered a handgun from the scene.

The man, later identified by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office as Kizzee, was pronounced dead at the scene; an autopsy is scheduled for later Tuesday. Neither of the deputies were injured, Dean said.

Activist Najee Ali, who is representing the family alongside attorney Ben Crump, denies that Kizzee was a threat at the time of the shooting. “Being in possession of a gun, but actually using a gun, having it in your hands are two different things,” Ali said, adding “he did not point the gun” at officers.

Who’s gun pulling you over? : Lying cop busted planting gun in vehicle

you-sir-are-a-liar
Posted by Deborah Jarrett

It should be real simple to accomplish police reform; Turn off your body cam and get a free ride to jail in your own squad car.    Every cop in the country should be required to wear one and to turn it off should be a felony. The body cam footage should be public record and immediately available for review without edit. It is about time that our out of control “Public servants” be brought back into control by those who supply their paychecks.

“A Queens cop is facing a misconduct charge after a shady gun arrest during a car stop, according to cops and police sources.

Police Officer Kevin Martin, 43, was arrested around 12:30 p.m. Thursday and cut free with a desk appearance ticket for official misconduct and tampering with evidence, according to police and prosecutors.

Police sources say the charges stem from a car stop where the cop claimed to have found an illegal firearm — but when he pulled the vehicle over his body-worn camera wasn’t rolling.

Martin later turned the camera on, showing him pull the gun from the car, but the time didn’t match up to the stop, according to the sources.

“We commend the Internal Affairs Bureau, in partnership with the Queens District Attorney’s Office, for a thorough investigation,” the NYPD said in a statement. “The internal investigation is ongoing and the officer’s current duty status is suspended without pay. We have no further comment.”

A few bad apples : Tree Bearing fruit after the death of George Floyd

aaeaaqaaaaaaaaweaaaajdy2n2yxodiylta0ndmtngrmos1hnmu2ltu2zdywota0yjq5yg

The old adage, a few bad apples spoils the bunch, has been shown to be true

Now that rotten bunch is responsible for America’s cities burning with the fire of righteous rage

This is about color alright

But not about black or white

This is about blue and the color of law

This is about the privilege and immunity from justice that comes simply by being a “sworn officer of the court”

This is about The ability to abuse, bully and even kill those that they are sworn to serve and protect without repercussion because they are able to lie and be believed

This is about bad cops in general, Guys Like Officer Dustin Mormando from Hernando county Fl. Who not only lies, but also tries to shake down his victims for money on the road side

This is about Bad cops like Emmanuel Tsongranis,  a Florida fish and wildlife officer who will lie under oath in a court, contradicting his previous testimony and then bend the law in front of a crooked Judge to get his way

This is about all of these bad apples and the very tree that they grow upon

And now, that tree has grown so large and so crooked that all of those bad apples

Bushel after bushel, are loosed upon the streets of America

That rotten fruit, grown from crooked and misshapen branches

Are finally running into justice

There are so many incidents, so many deaths and so much video

That they can no longer lie their way out of it

Or hide behind blue privilege

Killing after killing after killing has been recorded

Abuse, torture, illegalities

And now

The rubber has finally hit the road

Get ready America

It’s harvest time

It is time to pluck those bad apples and purge their rot and disease from the the rest of the lot

It is time to start over

This has gone too far to change with investigations and new guide lines

This has gone too far to change with a few blithe lies and assurances from slimy politicians

This has to be the beginning of something new

Not the continuation of the same old crap attached to the empty promises of someone attached to power

The tree that bear this fruit needs to be replaced entirely

By that of Liberty

Liberty Aut Mors

LAKELAND, Fla. — A video showing what appears to be a Polk County deputy punching a handcuffed suspect two times before placing him inside the back of a marked deputy cruiser is making rounds on social media.

The graphic video, sent to ABC Action News on Thursday, shows a man wearing a neon green t-shirt, later identified as 20-year-old Fernando Jimenez, being taken into custody by two Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

As one of the deputies holds Jimenez to the back of the cruiser, the second deputy appears to have punched Jimenez twice before placing him inside.

One of the punches appears to have hit Jimenez in the head.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the deputy punched Jimenez “whenever he was trying to get him under control.”
