Man Asks Cop For Help To Find Missing Girlfriend, Cop Beats Him With A Baton
posted 07/29/2014, 9:02 AM (InformationLiberation) [Category: Tyranny/Police State] A 13-year veteran St. Louis County, Missouri police officer allegedly beat a man in an "unprovoked show of force" after he asked him for help to find his missing girlfriend. Rather than offer help, Dawon Gore, 44, allegedly told the victim, Pierre Wilson, 24, that he should contact a department closer to his home, an answer which Wilson did not find satisfactory. An argument evidently ensued, after which Gore allegedly charged Wilson and proceeded to beat him with his baton, breaking three of his fingers in the process. Gore then reportedly denied him medical attention for an hour and a half while the victim was "booked."
Despite this supposed booking, Gore failed to file a police report and failed to notify his supervisor of the incident, choosing instead to drop the victim off at his home. Gore is now facing second-degree assault charges. Video of the beginning of the altercation, but not the beating, exists but is not being released as it's claimed to be evidence in the case.
Here's a local video report on the beating from KMOV:
“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is somethi
Mass Incarceration: 21 Amazing Facts About America's Obsession With Prison

Nobody in the world loves locking people behind bars as much as Americans do. We have more people in prison than any other nation on the planet. We also have a higher percentage of our population locked up than anyone else does by a very large margin. But has all of this imprisonment actually made us safer? Well, the last time I checked, crime was still wildly out of control in America and for the most recent year that we have numbers for violent crime was up 15 percent. The number ... (more)

Faked drug-dog certification puts Baltimore drug-money forfeiture at risk
posted 07/25/2014, 6:11 AM (City Paper) [Category: Tyranny/Police State] Early last year, the U.S. Supreme Court elevated the legal status of drug-detecting dogs, ruling that a police search can be presumed lawful if it is predicated on a positive alert by a well-trained dog with basic paperwork. Such training, though, is bunk if not accompanied by valid certification of the dog and its handler. Not only was it lacking in an ongoing drug-money forfeiture case in Maryland U.S. District Court, in which the government is seeking to keep $122,640 in cash seized last Sept... (more)
