Oh hey, race riots...



Police, protesters clash in Netherlands over death of Caribbean man after arrest

The police in The Hague are notorious, there have been 'incidents' for some time, this was the first one to get a lot of attention because of an actual death, not just assault, plus he's from another part of the Kingdom. Not quite a foreigner but also not quite not.

Aruban holidaymaker Mitch Henriquez, who died in police custody at the weekend, was probably killed by a lack of oxygen and this was most likely caused by the police, the public prosecution department said on Wednesday afternoon. The Hague’s prosecution chief, Kitty Nooy, said in a statement ‘no other explanations have been found for the lack of oxygen’. ‘No natural causes of death were found’ and Henriquez had not been using drugs and was not drunk, Nooy said.
Police action probably killed Mitch Henriquez, prosecutor says - DutchNews.nl

Riots In The Netherlands After Caribbean Man Mitch Henriquez Dies In Police Custody

Quote:
Dutch police fired warning shots and arrested 34 people during a third straight day of unrest on Thursday triggered by the death of a Caribbean man in police custody, and a temporary ban on public gatherings was imposed in a neighborhood hit by rioting.
Actually what I heard (and saw pictures on Facebook) was they corralled a lot of people who broke the ban on gatherings. And some vandals broke some windows and threw some fireworks and so now that's the most important thing that happened. And the thug that passes for prime-minister thought that was important enough to insult the rioters on tv, while he still hasn't said a word about the murderers.

Kettleling is a pretty common tactic here. Block group in "anyone who doesn't leave will be arrested!" then proceed to beat anyone trying to leave and arrest them for assault and resisting arrest. Protests in th bay have started using watchers that try to inform people where the cops are headed next to keep the group from being surrounded.

Yeah, it happened to me once at a demo when there was a Euro summit in Amsterdam. We were all arrested, all 200 of us, got tie-rip handcuffs on us, taken to the infamous Bijlmerbajes jail and held there in the gym (well, us guys, they separated us on gender lines). And then released the next day. This is actually 18 years ago already. Some of us sued the city of Amsterdam and got some money, I think it was about 200 guilders.

If they're now arresting people taking selfies on suspicion of terrorism, when will the UK start addressing the dire threat of photobombing?

At least they released him after a few hours and he didn't get roughed up, which is an improvement over the American police, but what possible kind of rationale could there be for this arrest other than a racist one? OMG! Olive-skinned man taking pictures of himself! We're all gonna DIE!

At one point in the UK having a normal looking camera was suspicious terrorist activity.

In the first 5 days of July American terrorist organization knows as The Cops have killed 21 people. A small commuter plane basically crashed and suddenly the media that loves death is silent.

However, I'm not against beating people with their selfie-sticks. Because 1) they hold them over their heads for shitty angled photos and b) they end up shutting down amusement park rides because they just had to take a stupid photo while moving.

What ever happened to the good old days of handing your expensive equipment to complete strangers to get in the photo or just enjoying the freaking moment.

A WaPo article by a dude called Alex Horton. It's not an egregious police action story, but I think it's an on-topic "here's why the police need to be not so egregious" commentary.

As police fuckers go, this is relatively benign, I guess, but it just goes to show you how petty and pointless cops and their boosters are:

NYPD Union Uses Flickr in Innovative New Push to Shame the Homeless

Also, I'll just point out that on the pictures with EXIF data, you can search on the individual camera IDs and often identify the owner.

Spoiler! Rich white tech industry boys with iPhones seem to be disproportionately represented. I'm guessing any cops doing this have been instructed in how to strip their identifying data.

It's not benign but it is incredibly stupid. (I'm not saying anything you don't already know.) I just can't imagine how the brain storming session for this went. Hey Bob! I've got a great idea to discourage the homeless from sleeping on the street! Let's take pictures with our internet phones and post the pictures on the internet! That will show those not computer having lay-abouts for sure!

You know, instead of helping fix the societal gap that exists or whatever requires real effort (and more importantly: money) to make things better.

Idea: let's take photos of police doing questionable things and post them on Flickr! (The article suggests sending them in to gawker)

Then: observe the police responding by correcting the behaviour we don't like and not complaining in any way.
