ISIS Cited as Michigan Village's Police Push for Secrecy posted 10/20/2014, 4:13 AM (Antiwar)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
The tiny village of Oakley, Michigan looks fairly unremarkable as you drive through it. Located along the M-52 highway, it consists of little more than a single traffic light, with a bar on one side and a gas station on the other. It’s a village of secrets, however, or so it would seem.

Oakley has 290 residents. They also have over 100 police, for some reason. Those police are also, more or less entirely anonymous.

Lapel Cam Captures Woman Trying to Frame APD Officer for Sexually Assaulting Her posted 10/20/2014, 4:13 AM (KOB.com)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
[...]APD union president Stephanie Lopez released this statement about the incident:

"The desire to frame officers for wrongdoing is a growing issue facing officers every day. We believe that the public should be held accountable for filing false reports against police officers. These incidents can be very damaging to an officer's career, so we hope that this individual and others face appropriate consequences for their malicious actions."

Though they say they're not charging the woman yet, note the union goon demands the public be held accountable for filing false charges, yet cops themselves are completely immune from the same standard. As a matter of routine cops try to pile on as many false charges as they can during an arrest, and they benefit from it because one, they'll never be held accountable, and two, their victim is put under immense pressure to take a plea and submit rather than fight in their rigged legal system. - Chris
