You just know I had to put it out there, if only for the sake of covering all bases. I personally suspect the racial aspect is one where the police just aren't as careful /killful around white suspects, and that gets them killed.

Technically "corrections officers" rather than pigs, but still disgusting as hell. I don't really even have words.

Those are the consequences of Clinton moving the country to a jail for profit system, and Obama arming and training local police with military weaponry.

It seems Sylvester has already got away with some kind of culpable homicide, or the issue before the appeal court would not be "Can the family sue the government for violating their rights?". Any :ff: lawyers care to comment?

Unsurprisingly, Piggington P. McPiggerson was acquitted of all charges today. The cultish post-9/11 worship of law enforcement continues apace.

I'm not even surprised.
We don't even have *always on* cameras yet and already they've been proven useless.

Also unsurprising is the National Racist Association has no problem with someone being murdered for legal open carry.

How a "bent" policeman could be key to clearing a man's name, 40 years on | The Guardian

From the link He rang in and asked for advice about trying to clear his name. “He [barrister Daniel Barnett] said: ‘Have you ever thought of Googling the name of the officer?’ I did and was gobsmacked by what I discovered.”

What emerged was that Ridgewell had himself been convicted of conspiracy to rob mailbags from the Royal Mail, was jailed for seven years in 1980 and had died in prison in 1982. What also emerged was that Ridgewell was responsible for a series of notorious cases in which young black men were falsely accused of robbery on the London underground.

Police officer "roughs up" and arrests nurse for doing her job.


Disgusting. I'm reminded of something that William Adama pointed out on Battlestar Galactica: Police are [ideally] trained to serve and protect the public. It's a terrible idea to use the military as a police force, because military personnel are trained to seek out and destroy the enemy. So inevitably, if you try to use the military as a police force [or train your police officers as if they were military personnel], they'll think of the public as an enemy to be subdued, not as people they should be serving and protecting.


Here's the actual quote:
Quote:
Originally Posted by Commander William Adama:
"There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people."

Oh, and in related news, the Trump Administration has been busily rescinding Obama-era restrictions on the sorts of military equipment that police departments are allowed access to. Because of course your local police department has a pressing need for grenade launchers -- and will never, ever be tempted to mis-use them.

The sad thing is, I'd bet that officer genuinely believed that he was being all kind and sensitive and calming when he assured the woman that he wouldn't shoot her, since she wasn't black.

A few years back a DJ from a local radio station got a photo of an armored personnel carrier with Jefferson County Sheriff's Department painted all over it. The guy posted the photo on his Facebook page with a message along the lines of "WTF why does the JeffCo Sheriff have a tank?!" The Sheriff's Office responded with something like, "Oh calm down ya big babies. It's not a tank, it's just an APC, and it didn't cost us anything."

I mean, how can you possibly expect the police to protect and serve without a complete array of fully automatic weapons, grenade launchers and armored vehicles?

So, a police officer pulled over a black guy and approached him with a drawn gun ... for the heinous crime of failing to signal a turn.

The driver's response is wonderful, but I'm honestly surprised he wasn't shot.

"Cop pulls over a black man for failure to signal, walks to his car with his gun drawn... Black dude is my fucking hero"
