Just so you understand that this is not an isolated movement; we’re going to give you a little bit of a cross section. Lets start in good old NYC and their same old f’d up Frisky
Cop Fuckery. Dig this from Friday 01/17/2014
Opponents of the newly appointed police commissioner, William Bratton, gathered on Friday in a protest that started in Harlem and ended in the Bronx. Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio announced his choice at the beginning of December, and just days away from his inauguration many protesters say the decision means de Blasio has already broken one of his campaign promises- to reform discriminatory practice of Stop and Frisk.

Now lets talk about the middle of the USA – Oklahoma; where they beat deaf drivers to death for not following directions, Yes Literally. this happened 01/04/2014
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — A deaf driver was beaten by police on the side of the highway when he was unable to understand and comply with their verbal commands.
Pearl Pearson, 64, was stopped by Oklahoma Highway Patrol after he allegedly left the scene of a minor accident on January 3rd, 2014.

A website set up on behalf of Pearson explains the events.
“Pearl pulled over and rolled down his window, expecting an officer to ask for [his] identification,” the website states. “An officer struck him in the face before Pearl had the chance to do anything. As you can see, he was struck multiple times.”
Pearson suffers from diabetes and is hearing impaired. His driver’s side door has a placard that reads, “Driver is deaf,” as does his driver’s license.
An affidavit claims that he refused to comply with repeated orders from police to display his hands, and that he resisted arrest. A seven minute altercation took place, according to KFOR-4 News.

The website in Pearson’s name states that he does not know why he was struck. His own own son and son-in-law are police officers. “He respects law enforcement and knows how to respond when pulled over,” the website states. “There is no reason for someone like Pearl to be hurt like this by those who are meant to protect and serve.”
Pearson’s neighbor, Sacia Law, was disturbed by the events and described it as a gross misunderstanding.
“He’s hearing impaired, you can’t yell at him from behind his car and get a response,” said Law. “I know they do dangerous jobs and they put their lives on the line, but that is over the top.” She added, “It’s completely unacceptable. Seven minutes of just basically beating someone?”
Further details about the traffic accident and the police altercation are not yet known, but Pearson’s attorney offered a statement.
“My client is completely innocent of these allegations,” explained Billy Coyle, representing Pearson. “We are waiting on the OHP report and we are sorting through the facts of the case. My client is profoundly deaf and was trying to give officers his specialty license during the stop.”
The troopers have been put on paid administrative leave
Can You Imagine – the murderers were put on PAID Administrative Leave ? wowwww, talk about dirty hands.
We also think you’ll be interested in the bloody disappointment in the outcome of the Kelly Thomas murder trial way over on the westcoast in Orange County California – Dig this,
Cpl. Steven Rubio Fullerton- Kelly Thomas Killing O.K.
Cpl. Steven Rubio FullertonPD- Kelly Killing O.K. and within policy in his opinion
It doesn’t seem that any Fullerton Police think any of the 6 men that beat Kelly to death did anything wrong at all.
A Fullerton Police Department training officer took the stand Tuesday in defense of the officers charged in the death of homeless man Kelly Thomas.
A stun gun used by officers in their confrontation with Kelly Thomas was shown in court.
Video of the July 5, 2011 incident showed Thomas, 37, being hit repeatedly with fists, a baton and finally the butt of a stun gun by Fullerton police officers.
“On the video, all things considered, I don’t see anything out of policy there,” said Cpl. Steven Rubio, who teaches use of force techniques.
The defense has maintained the officers actions during the confrontation with Thomas were reasonable and within their training.
Thomas, who suffered from schizophrenia, died in the hospital five days after the incident. http://thetrialdivas.com/2013/12/18/training-officer-defends-use-of-force-in-kelly-thomas-trial/

Can you imagine they beat a human being for upwards of ten minutes ? watch this and decide how you feel about the way they were acquitted of their crime – Cold Blooded Murder.
But Wait – It Thickens; One of The Murderers Wants His Job Back
Ex-cop Acquitted of Beating Kelly Thomas to Death Now Wants his Job Back
One of the former California police officers acquitted this week of beating to death a mentally ill homeless man wants to get his job back on the force. He and his partner were fired amid the investigation back in 2012.
“I was wrongfully terminated. How do you argue with a jury of 12 who all agree on the same thing?” Jay Cicinelli, former corporal at Fullerton PD, told the Orange County Register on Tuesday.
Cicinelli was acquitted on Monday by a Santa Ana jury of charges of involuntary manslaughter and use of excessive force in a trial that drew nationwide attention. His defense argued that he was acting within police guidelines and training.
The police altercation with Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old homeless person diagnosed with schizophrenia, happened on July 5, 2011. Footage of the incident shown in court showed Cicinelli repeatedly hitting Thomas’ face with the butt of his Taser.
Thomas was repeatedly saying he was sorry, pleaded for help and called for his dad, a former sheriff’s deputy, during the encounter.

He died five days later from asphyxia due to chest compression and injuries to the head and chest he sustained in the struggle, according to a coroner’s report.
Cicinelli would be fighting an uphill battle to get reinstated at the force, admits one of his attorneys, Michael Schwartz. But his client’s identity is to a great degree relying on his being a police officer.
His other attorney Zachery Lopes said the process to get Cicinelli his position again was begun before the trial, but essentially remained on hold pending the outcome of the court case.
A federal investigation into the case by the FBI is currently underway. Thomas’s father Ron said on Tuesday he hopes the investigation would result in rights charges against the officers.

This piece was found on Tumblr in the #Copwatch tag. it clearly gives us just enough to consider. -
This summer, after a civil suit challenged the New York City Police Department’s notorious program of patting down “suspicious” residents, Judge Shira A. Scheindlin of the Federal District Court in Manhattan imposed an experiment in which cops in precincts with the highest reported rates of stop-and-frisk activity would be required to wear video cameras for a year.
This is a really good idea.
Small cameras such as the AXON Flex from Taser International can attach to an officer’s sunglasses, hat, or uniform. Earlier this year, a 12-month study by Cambridge University researchers revealed that when the city of Rialto, California, required its cops to wear cameras, the number of complaints filed against officers fell by 88 percent and the use of force by officers dropped by almost 60 percent. Watched cops are polite cops.
In addition, research suggests that Judge Scheindlin has made the right call; requiring officers to wear video cameras will help protect citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure.
For example, a 2004 study in Criminology and Public Policy by criminologists Stephen Mastrofski from George Mason University and Jonathan Gould from American University evaluated direct observations of police searches in a medium-sized American city. They conservatively estimated that nearly one-third of police searches were performed unconstitutionally and almost none of those unconstitutional searches came to the attention of the courts.
Jay Stanley, a policy analyst with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), calls police-worn video cameras “a win/win for both the public and the police.” Win/win because video recordings help shield officers from false accusations of abuse as well as protecting the public against police misconduct.
In order to make sure that both the public and police realize the greatest benefits from body-cams, however, a number of policies need to be implemented.

so as you can now see, If you are smart – you need to Film The Police, Before They Murder You; plainly put. Because the chances of it happening these days is greater than at anytime before in history.
The police state are on their own with a solid gang stalking platform. Take time when dealing with them so that you do not become an instant victim.
The court stated that official police personnel and the government employing them owe no duty to victims of criminal acts and thus are not liable for a failure to provide adequate police protection unless a special relationship exists.
This explanation of how to handle a search situation should be recirculated to those you know. Share it Widely to Arm The Nation Against Excessive Brutality in this frontier style police state.
This was in the LA Times recently, and clearly gives you an impression that guidelines are in place to control the Minority population in-custody death question; through the action of the police state. this is not encouraging in the least,
Although it’s considered rare, medical examiners around the country are now using excited delirium to explain a significant number of in-custody deaths. Indeed, although no one tracks the number of suspected cases — nor are there any public records on the number of people who die in police custody — researchers suspect that the condition accounts for a half-dozen deaths in most major cities each year. By some estimates, excited delirium is now being ruled as the reason behind the majority of all in-custody deaths…
It’s a trend that worries police watchdogs and civil rights groups such as the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People and the American Civil Liberties Union. They fear that the condition is being exploited and used as a medical scapegoat for police abuse. Some point out that most medical associations don’t recognize it. “We’ve never heard of it,” says a spokesman for the American Medical Assn…
Already, the syndrome is being used as a defense in several civil lawsuits against police filed by families of those who’ve died in custody. That includes two civil cases in the last three years against the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department over the deaths of suspects who had been restrained by officers. The outcomes were mixed.
“This is a smokescreen. I’ve never seen any proof that someone can be excited to death, and that’s essentially what they are saying,” says Van Jones, executive director of the San Francisco-based Ella Baker Center for Human Rights.
According to neurologists and medical examiners who have researched the issue, excited delirium is an often-fatal condition that can occur in a small subset of people who use drugs, mostly stimulants like cocaine or methamphetamines, over a long period of time.
Typically, as users continue to take the drugs, the number of drug receptors in the brain rises, which helps pump dopamine and other excess hormones out of the brain…
Groups such as the NAACP contend that excited delirium is more often used to explain in-custody deaths in minorities than in whites, a claim that is hard to dispute considering the lack of national data.
“This condition reminds me of the argument they gave us 10 years ago about the chokehold. They said black men’s necks were more susceptible to dying in a chokehold, which of course was a lie. This is no different,” says Frank Berry, Western regional director for the NAACP.
