Cops Called For Wellness Check Beat Innocent Man, Pile On False Charges; Jury Exonerates, Twice posted 12/17/2014, 9:51 AM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]


Texas police executing a wellness check flashbanged an innocent man as he lay naked in his bathtub, then beat the hell out of him claiming he pulled a shampoo and body wash bottle on them.

Police working with prosecutors then vindictively concocted a series of false charges to hit the man with, accusing him of the very crime they themselves committed, namely assault. Their victim was Chad Chadwick, a father with a spotless record who says he's done everything he can in life to be a good person. After bankrupting him completely forcing him to defend against two felony charges of "assaulting a police officer," a grand jury said he broke no laws and all charges against him were dismissed.

Not content with allowing their victim to escape, prosecutors indicted the innocent man a second time on misdemeanor charges for "resisting arrest," after another tumultuous trial where more than a dozen police testified against him, another jury exonerated him.

Despite this all, the prosecutor says he stands by his decision to prosecute his victim, and when the news media asked him how much his prosecution cost taxpayers, he crassly told them he "wasn't keeping a tally."

The vindictiveness of police and government prosecutors knows no bounds.

As I write, FOX News television is reporting on the following story, which is also posted to its website, “A protest against police-involved killings spun out of control for the second straight night in Berkeley, Calif.

Bureau of Labor Statistics Released Top 10 Dangerous Jobs Report: Police Officer Not On It posted 12/10/2014, 4:36 AM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
We are constantly reminded via politicians, television, and the mainstream media in general of just how brave those "boys in blue" are to work in such "dangerous" conditions. The thin blue line, we're told, is akin to storming the beaches at Normandy.

But do these claims of mass danger and death hold water? Is it really necessary to smash an elderly woman's face into the ground, so you can "make it home to your wife and kids"?

Over the last decade police departm

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Cleveland, Ohio – All month, we have been reporting on the story of a young boy named Tamir Rice who was shot and killed by a police officer while playing in a park with a toy gun.

This week, Tamir’s mother, Samaria Rice has spoken out at a press conference, saying that not only was her 12-year-old son shot by officer Timothy Loehmann, but h

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
It turns out, Derek Youmans never touched the San Francisco cop who pounced on him at the airport in the video I posted this morning.

All he did was offer a handshake before attempting to walk away, already having obtained the cop’s name, Keith Parker, over not having been allowed on a plane earlier after he was falsely accused of drinking (more on that later).

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Federal guidelines on asset forfeiture say law enforcement agencies "may not commit" to spending figures in advance, but that hasn't stopped the Washington, DC police department from doing exactly that. As we covered here recently, the DC police have penciled in expected seizure amounts all the way up through 2018. All that's left to ... (more)


Former Police Chief Norm Stamper Criticizes "Occupation Mentality" Of Today's Police posted 12/10/2014, 4:36 AM (McClatchy DC)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
"...There is a preoccupation with officer safety. We want our police to make it home at the end of every shift, but their purpose in life shouldn’t be self-preservation, as understandable as that may be. These officers were not drafted into police service. They elected to become cops, and in carrying out the police function, they need to understand they’ve been hired in part to take risks – wise, prudent risks – and to de-escalate situations and diffuse tension. But if their major goal at end of... (more)
