‘Oath Keepers’ fascist organizers inside US military and police forces strongly favor Ron Paul candidacy …What a surprise!

'Oath Keepers' is an effort of the American Far Right to organize more cops and military into a blatantly fascist organization that is dedicated to fighting 'domestic enemies' of the US capitalist Empire. To the US Far Right, that would include just about anybody other than themselves. And who do they increasingly openly support for President? Why it's Ron Paul, who else? We began to run into these 'Oath Keeper' creeper types in local Occupy Colorado Springs, as Right Winger Ron Libertarian types began to take an increasingly hostile and threatening attitude against local Leftists who they wanted to run out of Occupy altogether. These local militarized Right Wing peons began increasingly to link up with more hard core Right Wing figures, both locally like 'Red, White, and Blue' failed businessman, Jim Cross, and also nationally with infamous Right Wing thugs such as Glenn Beck and reporters from his national blog called 'The Blaze', which they then used to launch a national witch hunt against myself for supposedly disparaging US soldiers.... Poor Babies. They must supposedly be protected by American Right Wingers from Lefties such as BIG BAD me. TROOPS KILL KIDS! Oh YES they really do! And some want me shut up for mentioning it, because they hate FREE SPEECH when it's actually exercised and doesn't agree with their own stupid opinions and ideas. Despite having my last name in hand and launching a national conservative campaign of hate against me and my family, not once did Glenn Beck's national reporter for The Blaze ever make the slightest effort to hear my side of the story against the slanders of these local Right Wing misfits and petty thugs inside Occupy Colorado Springs. Where's the commitment to TRUTH, Beck? Oh...? You are not in anyway committed to telling the truth about anything, are you? You're just committed to harassing the Left... that's all. Occupy Colorado Springs became more and more divided between us leaning Leftward, and those who left the local Occupy to campaign openly for Ron Paul. So here it is about the 'Oath Keeper' organizing for Ron Paul, ALL THIS in spite of OAF Keeper supposedly being all 'non-partisan' and sweet like. They're not non-partisan at all, but simply a collection of Far Right Wingers latched onto the American National Security State... See Veterans And Troops Support Ron Paul and see what I mean about how these thugs are tied together with Ron Paul and his cronies. Not pretty at all. Too bad so many in Occupy Colorado Springs were already organized into Right Wing circles. That's the real reason Occupy Colorado Springs basically has gone into a deep funk.

Police response to Tulsa killings contrasts to killing of blacks elsewhere because in Tulsa the cops are not protecting those seen as their own

A couple of White men killing Blacks ad lib in Tulsa, and the police have responded quickly and appropriately and arrested the responsible parties, so far. But in Florida it remains a different story as the police apparently there see George Zimmerman as being somehow basically one of their own. Th reason for that is the intervention of the father or the vigilante assassin, and how that and his local political allies influenced decision making. In Pasadena, California, the police just blew away another Black teenager and they then afterwards tried to charge another man entirely with the charge of 'manslaughter'! That charge did not fly but still the cops allowed themselves to walk scotch free despite their unnecessary killing of a man. See Family of Black Teen Killed by Pasadena Cops Alleges Racial Profiling for that story of cops protecting their own, as they themselves commit unlawful acts. And in Chicago, Black ex-cop shot 28 times by White cops is found guilty, fights for justice the cops shot away at a Black man 28 times, and then charged their victim with 'assault'! The cops walked away free of any investigation of what they did in their attempted murder of a Black ex-cop. Protecting their own once again, gets both cops and soldiers free rides so very often! These two uniformed groups apparently see themselves way above the law themselves and their government bosses see it that way as well, because The People have allowed democracy to be totally stripped away from our society. Let's not let them continue to allow Robert Bales and the other soldiers to get off, despite their slaughter down of innocent children in Afghanistan. Cops and soldiers should not be above all law. That's just too dangerous for all of us. Bales needs to be sent back to Afghanistan to face the law there for his crimes, and we the American People need to demand that the US government and the Pentagon stop hindering the investigation there of what happened. Throwing dollar bills at the survivors of these dead civilians simply is not any real justice for them. We should be ashamed of what our government and military officials are doing. And we should feel personally threatened by it as well.

‘We want an arrest. Shot in the chest!’

Thousands upon thousands of marchers today were active nationwide demanding that justice be served on George Zimmerman for his assassination of Travon Martin in Florida, with whom he started a confrontation with because he thought it suspicious that a Black teenager was walking in his neighborhood. Americans simply cannot allow gun toting nuts to kill people ad lib and have local cops take no action to prosecute these racially paranoid fools. Shame on the Sanford, Florida police for how they mishandled the case! Shame on America for largely having accepted as the norm the routine racism of American municipal police forces for so damn long. See Trayvon Martin marchers to Sanford, Fla., police: 'We want an arrest. Shot in the chest' ...Yes, we want George Zimmerman arrested for his murder of Trayvon Martin NOW!

Gee, is it any surprise that in America the brown shirts would be white?

There he is in all his glory, an NYPD "White Shirt", the now feared NYC police commanders, raring back and using both hands to club Occupy Wall Street marchers. Other footage shows a whole squad of white shirts swinging away. But "squad" is wrong word, that already denotes boys in blue. So what's the Murder-of-Crows syntax for a gang of black-gloved White-shirts? Love it: a thug of whiteshirts. In Italy the fascists were blackshirts, in German they were brownshirts. Corporate America is white collar, so it's armed enforcers are whiteshirts. Sorry but Youtube is keeping the above video behind its sign-in wall. Gawker's got it. NYPD skinhead swaggers at thought that "my nightstick is going to get a workout tonight."

CSPD Junior Police Explorers learn early to swagger and menace like pros

2011 DIVERSITY FAIR, NOTES, PART 1- What is our police department doing with high school age "explorers?" They're uniformed and have their own shoulder patch. Exploring what? The limits to which they impose their weight against peoples' rights? I'm at a civic festival in Confluence Park, across from a canopy whose shade does not conceal a mass of blue uniforms, adult officers bulky with bullet-proof vests and leather, holstering all manner of law enforcement weaponry, and CSPD apprentices, skinnier for lack of the armor and accouterments, but otherwise dressed exactly like police officers, and adopting the swagger which comes of trooping the colors, emboldened by the anonymity of the requisite Ray-Bans. I don't know what the CSPD think they're doing. Community outreach would be far better accomplished in t-shirt and shorts. I can't help but think that the authority communicated by the uniforms is being abused in this setting. I'm reminded immediately of the menace which fascist youth groups projected over even their parents. These kids are strolling around the event like appointed hall monitors. Patrolling, some of them would you believe, with their thumbs looped on their leather belts. If they had clubs they'd be twirling them. Of course, they stroll pretending it means assimilation, as if submission to authority is a normal ingredient of any balanced community. I suspect that's what the early indoctrination "explores." Actually, the Explorers get their name because they're "exploring law enforcement as a career." Yes any profession would be something an apprentice might want to explore, but police craft is one which requires alerting the public that this uniformed person does not have full-on authority/responsibility over you. Well, responsibility is probably what they're most concerned about. No one should doubt the craft of policemanship bears complexities worthy of journeymen, but I'd rather recruits came into law enforcement in the more common manner, after a college education. Well, this IS the EVERYBODY WELCOME Diversity Fair, so we can't exclude the Fascists. But do the city's traditionally marginalized populations really feel welcomed by such an asserted police presence? I'm thinking of the immigration-challenged circles. But in general, how welcome do you suppose Hispanic, African, or Native Americans feel with white kids semi-officially playing cop? Presumably the Klan was excluded from invitation, like any hate-group, because it offends the hatees. Probably law enforcement should take a backseat too, and not pretend that policing be considered a cultural component of a community. It's given me an idea however. Maybe the point could be brought home if we injected the event with worse than these crew-cutted crackers. How about a para-militarized presence? I'm thinking cops in riot gear, patrolling like it was no big deal. In protest situations it's become the norm, imagine if the average non-protester were to see the face of the US police state. Would citizens be so comfortable if instead of officer friendly, or junior uniformed friendlies, the event was patrolled by storm troopers. The CSPD knows better than to expose itself like that, but imagine a riotous development

“Psychic Tip” is enough to get a No-Knock Search Warrant…WTF?

So the AP headline was "Texas farmhouse searched on Psychic Tip, no bodies found". WHAT? I'm not in the least concerned that there wasn't any evidence found, I myself can "psycho-ly" predict that particular outcome. Not one single Scientifically Empirically Verified psychic prediction of ANY of the major news-generating Historic events has ever been brought forth. Not Pearl Harbor, not the death of any political leader, not any major natural disaster, not 9/11, the whereabouts of Usama bin Laden, two space shuttle disasters, the surprise launch of Sputnik, NOTHING. Psychic phenomena is about the most documented to be least accurate form of Evidence. So what comes next? Do the cops, prosecutors, judges and other Tools of the Police State actually get to maybe Convict somebody based on some jackass who claims a Direct Link To God saying that he's convinced the defendant is guilty? I mean, a Search Warrant supposedly has stringent rules of evidence just to obtain one, It's like an actual conversation I overheard between a police officer and somebody else, the cop complaining because he wasn't allowed to shake somebody down even though he "knew" the person was in possession of contraband. Asked HOW he "knew" he said "my gut tells me, OK?" NO, Officer, NOT OK. Your gut was probably telling you it was time to take a 10-100 at Dunkin' Donuts. The Constitutional prohibitions against Irrational Hunches being used to obtain search warrants or arrest warrants are there for a reason. It leads to a situation where any cop can search, arrest or kill any person just because he says so. It's purest Lynch Law mentality, on the hoof. And this particular case was in TEXAS? WTF Revisited? Texas whose political options involve voting for somebody endorsed by the General Baptist Convention or one endorsed by the Southern Baptist Convention. Where you'd be loudly condemned to the Everlasting Fire of Hell for wearing an astrological pendant or asking a potential breeding partner "So, babe, what's your sign?" And at least one court is issuing warrants based on "Minority Report" without any of the (shaky) Scientific trappings.

Navy Seals Death Squids

It does seem unfair to conclude, after the US special forces operation to hunt and kill Osama bin Laden, that all Navy SEAL teams are death squads, but is it a logical fallacy? No one is now pretending there was any other objective but to kill the al-Qaeda leader and everyone who stood in our path, preferably unarmed. Now the latest revelation is that a duplicate assault team was kept at the ready. That's how many executioners ready? The question becomes, are all Navy Seals trained to kill in cold blood? The answer could lay with the instructors at Fort Benning, the notorious "School of the Americas" where it used to be understood the death squads of South American dictators learned their trade, although now torture is taught at military camps and private contractor schools literally coast to coast, so isn't that the problem? Torture being among other unsavory practices we say we do not do, while simultaneously forbidding revelations to come from Wikileaks. When the Germans set their minds to liquidate civilians as their Operation Barbarossa drove toward Russia, they dedicated "special forces" called the "Einsatzgruppen" to do the deed. One because the task detracted from the forward advance, and two, because executing unarmed civilians proved a demoralizing task for the ordinary soldier. On the other hand, gathering noncombatants and shooting them in the back of the head didn't require combat skills either, so the Einsatzgruppen were recruited from the police force of German cities like Hamburg, where the principle skill was exerting authority and pulling the trigger where others might flinch. The Einsatzgruppen present vexing evidence for Holocaust deniers. Skeptics can point to inconsistencies about the function of gas chambers in the concentration camps, to suggest that the Nazis might have managed to work their prison laborers to death, but never intended to exterminate them. That argument fails when considering the role of the Einsatzgruppen, to hunt down Jewish civilians, take them to where no one is looking and shoot them. Prisoners of war, yes, and Slavs too, but by primary directive, the Jews. When partisan acts of sabotage necessitated disciplinary retribution, the Germans had other squads to raze entire villages, these soldiers were chosen from the military brig or from convicts offered a military probation from civilian prison. In either case the German Wehrmacht chose to match the criminal mindset to the crime. Though overwhelming in its savagery, WWII predated the "Free Fire Zone" where civilians are pretended to be adversaries and/or dismissed as collateral damage. That's not to say that today's soldiers are all bad, many of them I'm sure are earnest peacekeepers determined to win hearts to Pax Americana. I'm sure your average Navy SEAL has rescued his share of kittens from trees. So which is it, do the Navy SEALs train every member not to shy from shooting defenseless people at point-blank range, or are there designated specialists? Are those chosen based on excellence of performance, as the PR has it, or from among the sailors with disciplinary troubles? Because

Annual Good Friday Sermon– The Police State Killed Jesus

If Jesus had come to Colorado Springs last Sunday instead of GW riding his sorry ass into town on Sabbath, He would be sitting in a cell at CDC awaiting execution today. Nowadays the police state doesn't make a huge public spectacle of torturing somebody to death. They just go ahead and do it, in cells far removed from the eyes of any civilian witnesses.The prisoner is then denounced, post mortem where he can't defend himself, as "being psychotic", and when the Good, Noble, Brave Righteous PIGS tried to "restrain" him, he died in the struggle. Like the Murdering Scum Pigs in Denver did to Rev. Marvin Booker 9 months ago... and got away with it. Or that they found him hanged in his cell. The Pig Medical Examiner, himself a Deputized Cop, will confirm whatever his Fellow Pigs said and the DA will instruct the Inquest to clear the PIGS of any wrongdoing. They could march the handcuffed prisoner out into the middle of Acacia Park at noon, force him to the ground, and put a bullet in his back, and the "Good" citizens of Colorado Springs would swear on a stack of Bibles that they personally witnessed it as a suicide. The Imperial Storm Troops wear blue now, except when they're armored up to beat down peaceful demonstrators." Can you even tell where those Pigs are? Aside from Kevlar and Mylar replacing bronze, leather and iron as components of their armor, they'd look and feel right at home pounding nails into the joints of a Terrorist Suspect in the Arabian Peninsula. Actually they're from the "christian" nation of Peru, another Police State Military Dictatorship with its puppet-strings in the Pentagon and in Langley, VA. Doesn't matter though, Stormtroopers are Stormtroopers, in any country or city in the world. The CSPD = the KGB = The Gestapo = The Ba'ath Party = The Roman Legion X. The Catholic members of the CS Pig Department will be at Mass today, gazing on pictures and statues of a man they would look upon as just another hippie or just another Middle Eastern Terrorist and would be happy to put the nails in His wrists and ankles. Ordinary congregants wouldn't look at it like that, but I bet every "christian" Pig does. Looks upon the Crucifix with a smug satisfied smile, the same way they look on the body of an inmate "found dead in his cell". The same way the Detroit Police looked at the shattered body of 7 year old Alyanna Jones and laughed. A Catholic cop would look at the Crucifixion depictions and make a silent oath to himself "Yeah, next time we do You, we'll make sure you don't come back!' I blame their Mommas. Too busy whoring to teach them to be honest citizens instead of power-drunken minions of the Police State.

Scott Walker, Koch-Licker Supreme, strikes again

In a measure not just skirting state constitution, but directly contravening it, the Anti-Workers Rights law was published Friday. Not even bothering anymore to hide their vicious agenda to deprive workers of freedom. The only "right" workers will have is to work. At whatever wage the Big Pig Parasite Class decides is enough for them to survive on, even if it's far less than what it costs US to produce our labor. The Greedy-ass Rich Bitch corporate overlords would refuse to make less than a 20% annual profit, yet WE, the workers who put the money in THEIR pockets to begin with, are not allowed to decide what a fair profit for OUR labor, OUR product, would be. Nor even to decide for ourselves what "breaking even" would be, THEIR thieving Corporate Accountants and Corporate Attorneys will tell us and if we object, what? The traditional method for them to punish workers for being so "uppity" as to think of ourselves as Human Beings with rights, is to order THEIR Pigs to arrest us and THEIR so-called "justice" system to Imprison us, forcing US to work for THEIR corporations without any pay. If we object any further, they have THEIR Torture-freak "corrections" officers murder us behind walls, conveniently where the only witnesses will be Their Fellow Pigs. Just a coincidence, then, that the PIG governor of Wisconsin exempted cops and "corrections" Slaves from bargaining limitations? Until he can figure a way to screw them as well. Eat the Rich. We've fed the porky bastards long enough, it's time for them to start feeding US.

Woody Guthrie at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade!

Actually, his son Arlo. Now, usually on Thanksgiving we hear Arlo's "Alices Restaurant". Which is a good song sung for a good cause, the Alices Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement. Unlike a parade at which he sang the song in 1968, in Chicago, and a parade in Colorado Springs where the music was all militaristic, even the Al Khaly Shrine band playing God Save the Queen, the British National Anthem at a St Paddies' parade, with Royal Marines marching in the band, where neither Arlo, his most excellent music or really any radical ideals were expressed, (save for the Military theme of "We get to go to exotic lands, meet interesting people, and kill them in order to take those exotic lands") The Macy's Parade wasn't interrupted by Uniformed Thugs beating up Americans for daring to say that peace is better than murdering people. And his song at the Macy's parade? One of his fathers songs. "This land is made for you and me" which Right Wing Media Lunatic Beck makes a huge Hysterical Anti-Leftist Spasm about, because the song expresses a Communist principle that the land does NOT belong exclusively to the Wealthy. Especially since every square inch of what is now defined as the United States was taken at gunpoint from the original owners, and those who refused, were slaughtered, along with their families. Including the Babies. At public expense and for the immediate and long term benefit of the Very Rich. The ones Beck represents. And his TeaBag fake revolutionaries Unlike the marchers at the St Paddies Parade, unlike the marchers at the Democratic Convention 68, unlike Woody Guthrie, Gleen Beck and his Fascist Fellow Travelers in the Tea Party, not a single TeaBag has EVER been prevented from speaking, forced to the ground or had his face hit with club or Taser or Police Jackboot, the TeaBags have NEVER been gassed or had the PIGS ride into their midst on horseback swing clubs and busting skulls, even though they advocate KILLING Americans. Chickenshit fake-revolutionary PUKES have the full backing of the PIG establishment. Really BRAVE of them. Woody had this sign he would paint on his guatar or printed up on paper and glued to it, For a long time I've been engraving this message on my flutes, (descant Recorders, actually) In tribute to a man loved by the people and hated by the Fascists, like Beck, like the TeaBags, the Republicans... No, I don't think it's hyperbole to mention the FACT that the main difference between a Nazi and a Republican is that the Nazis were far more organized and efficient. They were, at the same time as the Anschluss, organizing in America, actually had rallies at venues like Madison Square Garden. Huge rallies attended by the Elite of the Republican Party. Pastors like Billy Sunday preached at their rallies. The Klan attended their rallies. Kind of like the Tea Party Rally Beck and Palin held at the Lincoln Memorial. Wonderful company they keep, and they get all bent out of shape when somebody

Capital in Action, minimum wage.

Just heard a commercial for a "rent to own" place. One where the payments on a laptop computer totaled two and a half grand for a 450 dollar machine. A 700 dollar (at the high end price) refrigerator, 159 bux a month for two years, 3816 dollars. That's a 400% markup. So, what's the Big Deal about Minimum Wage? Why shouldn't those of us who rent out our labor have to do it not at a profit, not even at a "break-even" rate, but below the actual cost for us to produce our labor? If I were to walk into the Rent-to-own place and demand to only pay $700 for the $700 refrigerator, would I be legitimately allowed to walk out the door, (with a rented dolly and rented pickup of course) with the refrigerator? How about if I only offered $500? Surely he could survive on $20 a month for 2 years. No? What if I got some Publicly Paid Goons to force him to negotiate on my terms, the way Capital always does when they're confronted with the silly-ass demands of Labor that the Workers actually be paid an adequate wage? See, every time this question gets put to the Capitalists, they come off with a duplicate of Squealers Speech from Animal Farm about how the duties of Leadership are so much more strenuous than the duties of Followers that the Pig Leaders deserve, nay, NEED, to have the windfall apples, the milk and to sleep in the farmhouse. I "trot" that one out a lot because Capitalists seem to believe they own the story. Also the Corporate Welfare aspect of them using the publicly funded police and army to negotiate their coercive labor deals for them. And to coerce suppliers of the raw materials, like foreign nations who produce Oil, minerals and even produce the Produce (like vegetables, coffee, bananas...) And then have the balls to say that they worked for their money, and don't owe the workers anything. Why, we should be so proud to work for them that we'll pay them for the privilege.. oh, wait, we already do.

Update: Person who shot Pentagoons (allegedly) Dead

AFTER it was reported that none of the three, either the PIGS or the shooter, suffered life threatening injuries. They're probably hustling him off to a USMC or USAF or CIA Torture Center, where the Torture Freak PERVERTS can have their sick sadistic way with him indefinitely and without him ever having Habeus Corpus, a trial, anything like that. The Sickest part of that is some of our Local Right Wing "Back the Badge" piglovers are going to say "so what? Anybody who rebels against the Empire DESERVES to be tortured!" They'll probably wrap it with Bible quotations so they can go to church Sunday and pretend to be Godly, too. Too bad the Pentagon PIGS didn't die. They'd be in HELL where they belong. I can easily see how somebody who has "enjoyed the hospitality" of the Police State Goon Squads would want to bust a cap through one of their Snouts. Something about being beaten and tasered while handcuffed could bring out that reaction in the most saintly of us. Some of the sanctimonious Hypocrites will criticize me even mentioning that. "Give place, for we are holier than thou". Then the Smug "christian" bastards will turn their Pig Minions loose to commit further Hate Crimes, all without any kind of actual judicial review. The Pig Chaplains and the Army Chaplains will be the worst of the lot, they sell not only their own souls to the god of War in the name of "serving" the God who made us all, but the souls over whom the Antichrist Army gives them leadership. It's why I don't attend Church. Because I know that the Churches in this town or any other will worship the Pigs as though they were angels from heaven instead of, as they actually are, Demons in human form. The worst part of it would be after the service, when some PIG would want to shake my hand and pretend that he considers himself to be my Brother In Christ... when any other hour of the week he would cheerfully beat me down while I'm handcuffed. (I speak from experience here) and every Pious Hypocrite from the Pastor on down would back him up on it. I'll not match their hypocrisy with hypocrisy on my part. I'll not pretend to believe that they have any kind of Christian love or brotherhood about them. They devour the houses of widows and orphans, and for a pretense make long prayers. (and want to shake your hand and pretend they love you as a brother)

NOLA Ku Klux Koverup.

"A culture of deception and secrecy" sounds so very much like the Klan. Except for a couple of crucial divergences, The Klan has defectors at a rate that's an order of Magnitude above the percentage of Cops who'll actually testify against their fellow Pigs And they wonder why their Fellow "Heroes" get killed and assaulted so often Could it be that somebody who has fallen afoul of their Ku Klux Kulture knows damned well that he'll never get a REAL legitimate hearing in a court where the Cops, the Judge, the Prosecutor and if he's not Rich the Public Defen Pretender belong to the same Old Boy Clique and the "guilty until proven Innocent or a sufficient bribe is paid" rule is in full force? That such a person might not be so weak that being tortured and imprisoned and chained and beaten and threatened would be sufficient to make him "respect" the PIGS, and that he might acquire a firearm and just blow some pigs face through the back of his piggy little skull? Maybe it isn't what the cops deserve, after all, their victims, at least the one trying, convicting and sentencing them in the street isn't actually dead, so it's not exactly "eye for an eye". Perhaps, you know, being smacked in the face with a club while you're handcuffed and called "crazy" for objecting to such treatment at the hands of some Truly Sub-Human Uniformed Retards would tend to make one disregard such niceties. It might not be what the cops deserve, per se... but it is exactly the kind of "justice" they themselves dish out.

Online vigilantes of Manatee County FL

Upstanding citizens Michael Quinn and Carole Atkins maintain a website in Bradenton Florida to ensure that if you get arrested in their neck of the woods, Manatee County and environs, the whole world will have access to your mugshot, and the details of your crime. Or alleged crime, since the accounts are posted in advance of court hearings, guilty verdicts, or even a minor's turning 18. Legal? D'ya think? Townships and counties around America are setting up online databases where residents can acquaint themselves with the sexual offenders living in their neighborhoods. Regardless what you think of the merits of that sort of neighborhood watch, isn't it quite another thing to broadcast the pictures of ordinary people who've run afoul of the law? The Manatee County collection represents a repository of sad persons whose lives are going to be forever bound with citations, fees and parole officers. Just knowing that their likenesses are being broadcast far and wide, what is their sense of their own prospects for being offered a job or credit, or any kind of fresh start? The majority of these cases site confessions to detectives, and end reassuring the reader that the arrestee is presently in jail unable to post bond. Working against the inevitable recidivists is the unfortunate talent of the Bradenton Police Department photographer. There's an irresistible quality to the pictures themselves, which are not the usual dull mugshots, but are curiously real emotive portraits. Then there's the absolute pathos of the crime descriptions themselves. Manatee County is determined to hound even the lowest of evildoers who siphon gas, even from an outboard engine boat fuel tank. Here are some sample crimes: Angry Boys, 12 and 14, Arrested for Breaking Car Windows and Stealing Golf Clubs Young Man Threatens Sister with Fire Poker, BB Gun, Throws CDs at Mom Man Argues with Other Man Over Baseball Teams While Playing Golf Bradenton Police Arrest Man for Burglary After He Entered Family Residence Where He's Not Welcome Woman Found Hiding in Closet in South Manatee County (charged with breaking into an Unoccupied Dwelling) Man Cuts Friend's Hand in Argument Over Beer Man Rented Out Home He Didn't Own Man Arrested for Threatening to Kill Woman and "Everyone Who Did This To Him" Local Crime Watch Group Shuts Down Mini Pot Growing Operation (two marijuana plants growing in a white pot.) And there's this item, which we reprint in full, with the name changed to protect the innocent until proven guilty: Thief with Conscience Arrested After Burglary According to a report from the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, at about 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, James Denton, 42, who lives at the Crown Mobile Home Park, broke into a friend's mobile home and took a play station, camping roll, hair dryer and other miscellaneous items, the report said. ... Denton confessed to a deputy that he was trying to get in touch with the victim of the burglary to help him because Denton's girlfriend had been arrested and he was trying to get money for her bail of $500, he told the deputy. That's why he

Colorado Springs government and police continue to lie about their raids on the Homeless

HOMELAND INSECURITY REPORT- The CS police, under the direction of Police Cap Ricky 'Liars' Myers, are continuing to fudge and pretend their innocence about their raids and harassment against the Homeless population in the city, on behalf of the Business Community which simply hates these unfortunate people. They want them all gone but can't find a way to get it done without attracting public attention. So they have to play all sorts of mind games using the local press as conduit for their song and dance. 'The cleanups first received negative publicity last fall after homeless advocates charged the monthly sweeps include improper searches and that personal belongings are routinely tossed out. The ACLU contends the cleanups violate the Fourth Amendment and the Colorado Constitution. ..... In bullet-point fashion, ACLU staff attorney Taylor Pendergrass describes its findings after it "interviewed dozens of persons who claimed to have had private property seized and destroyed by CSPD and KCSB." Among them is that the cleanups were typically unannounced and conducted when homeless people were away from their camps and couldn't protect their belongings. "Numerous different CSPD officers have been involved in seizing and destroying property, but many interviewees consistently identified CSPD Officer's Olav Chaney and Tracey (sic) Fox," Pendergrass wrote in the letter.' Taken from ACLU: Cops look into sweeps at camps

Accused Bomb-Plot Suspect commits suicide…

Apparently, he handcuffed himself and tasered and kicked himself to death. The police guards attempted to stop him but he refused, continuously throwing his head against their Jackboots. This was confirmed by the Coroner, who despite being a Deputized Peace Officer of course would never ever no not never LIE to protect his fellow PIGS.

Joseph –I am a Zionist– Biden’s love affair with pigs wearing lipstick

CopObama and running mate Joe "I am a Zionist" Biden are big fans of hiring even more cops, funding even more militarization of the US, and exporting that military policing mindset to around the globe to the torturers that the US government constantly allies itself with. Yes, Joe Biden wants to hire another 50,000 PLUS extra pigs in the US as the following excerpt from his web site illustrates... 'Funding 50,000 Cops and 1,000 FBI Agents: In the 1990s, the Biden Crime Bill added 100,000 cops to America’s streets. As a result, murder and violent crime rates went down eight years in a row. George Bush’s cuts to the program have put America at risk and crime rates are back on the rise. Joe Biden wants to put 50,000 more cops on the street and add 1,000 more FBI agents to address the rise in crime and threats of terrorism.' For full scope of Biden's love affair with lipsticked pigs see his Homeland Security No priority is higher than America’s safety snoutings. And the pigs love the Democratic Party. The love affair is mutual! MSNBC reports that POLICE ORGANIZATIONS BACK OBAMA-BIDEN. Now isn't that lovely? The last thing our country needs is yet more funding for prisons, military, pigs, and their weaponry. Joe Biden and Obama don't think that though, and in the National Porcine Employment Homeland Security Department, they can certainly more than hold their own with the McCain-Palin nutters. Beware!

Transit crash used as excuse for taxpayer-paid LA cop fest

Hundreds attend funeral of LAPD officer killed in Metrolink crash And just why is it that cops get paid to go to this funeral and it makes headlines for the cops? There were at least 24 other people that have died from this case of poorly constructed mass transit lines and the ensuing crash that occurred, so shouldn't money go to fix these problems and save lives instead of going to salaries for cops at funerals and advertisement for spending money on yet more thugs in uniforms? We need this money for social services and other government budget items, things like safer mass transit systems funding for example and not more funding for yet more uniformed cop thuggery in this country. The cops get paid oodles of money for no good reason. The recent events at the Democratic and Republican Party conventions are also illustrative of the excessive Let's Feed The Uniforms mentality that is bankrupting us around the country. How much was spent for that excessive use of thuggery force by the cops? And what was so damn special about the cop that died in this tragic accident that she merits the city paying its officers to do their thing at this ceremony? What about the funeral expenses of the other who have died? What about the medical care of the injured, many of whom lacked insurance and adequate medical coverage because of that? This country has its priorities totally screwed up, and this cop fest is just one more illustration of that. It's time to stop glorifying the cops. It's time to stop having our money stolen away to deed the cops more and more donuts. They are goons for the rich and only ever marginally ever do anything for the working classes. The community needs to police itself and get rid of this excessive funding that now goes to prisons and uniformed thugs.

Shhh… Police at work

From Madison, Wisconsin comes Court: Cops illegally taped nursing home sex. Not to be out done, the Inglewood cops just shot a homeless man 47 times and filmed themselves in the act! California Community Outraged by Police Shootings of Unarmed Homeless Man If you want somebody dead, just call the cops! They're armed and they're dangerous and they have the brains about them of your typical Public High School PE teacher or Coach. PLUS, they can get away with murder LEGALLY. And do.

In the good judgment of the cops

'Sign here on this ticket for speeding and failure to wear a seat belt (of course!). The bad news is that you have to go to court on this one.' Thus spoke the cop as the woman sped toward her escape from being raped! In the good judgment of the cops one cannot depend, this case in point. From our favorite paper, The Gagzette... Woman says traffic cop ignored her claim of rape This story has the ring of truth to it, as anybody stopped by the ticket-writing happy CS PD before surely can sense.

Nothing says “change” like a guy who’s been in the Senate for 35 years.

Democratic Party making it clear they want a fascist police state even more than the GOP. Only violence at demonstrations by neofascist, jackbooted cops. I hope the City of Denver loses many millions of dollars in lawsuits for violating the Constitutional rights of protesters. And the Democrats lose many millions of votes for their complicity in these crimes against the Constitution of the United States of America. (Excerpted from thomasmc.com Aug 26.)

Racist police wait 2 weeks before finally arresting local teenagers who murdered undocumented worker in Pennsylvania

Democracy Now ran this interview with an eyewitness about the case of an undocumented Mexican worker, Luis Ramirez, who was murdered in an assault by a gang of racist football players in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania. The following day, July 25, local police finally arrested some of the perps for this murder, almost 2 weeks after it occurred on July 12! See AP report about the arrests ...Teens charged in fatal beating of immigrant Pa. town 'filled with tensions between many ethnic groups' Note that Amy Goodman gets the timing of the murder wrong in her reportage by 1 week, but still a very revealing report at that. And also note the framing done by Associated Press, which tries to excuse the racist hate crime by talking about a town full of 'tensions'. Can one imagine such a title to a news report if a gang of Hispanics had beat and kicked to death a White Anglo in this town? So we go from police inaction and prevarication in Pennsylvania to the murder of a Black man in Louisiana in the same time span,who was tasered multiple times by a White racist cop, including twice when he was already unconscious! See my previous commentary titled Cop torturing by taser gets a little out of hand down South It is clear that the police and legal systems are racially biased at all levels and regions of this country. But what can one expect from a legal system that has made legal testimony from prisoners (POWs) that are tortured in the hands of US authorities? The racism flows from the top levels of government straight down to the local football player thugs in our society. And of course, ti was probably the racist parents of these 'kids' that voted for this sick government in the first place. The violence in American society is circular in nature and is becoming more and more out of hand, and at the heart of the problem is our bloated military and the bloated corporations that supply it.

New chairwoman of PPJPC Board calls the police on members of her group!

After over a year of meetings between PPJPC office staff with the police here in Colorado Springs and a purge of the former activist Chair of the group, it has been obvious that the Pike Peak Justice and Peace Commission was already in a state of steep decline. The group is hemorrhaging money from its overpaying their office staffers who are glued to protecting their salaried positions at the expense of the rest of the membership, and its misuse of its office itself, which is almost always closed to the public. The group has no internal democracy at all, and it is very difficult to work with the proprietors of the club But tonight, we really got a glimpse of what a mess this group has become, as member activists tried to come together in a meeting at the office to decide how to protest the US government plans to start war against Iran, and how to participate nonviolently at the Denver Democratic Party Convention? Upon arrival at the offices, we found that the locks had been re-keyed, and the place where the spare had always been kept was hanging open as a kind of insult to us who had planned to meet inside. This, despite the fact that the key had stayed the same for years, and the Directors have secretly made the decision to vacate the present offices at the end of next month! Evidently they found it so imperative to keep us from using a meeting space inside the office that would not be controlled entirely by the paid office officials, that they dished out the money to the locksmith. We decided then to sit outside and meet there instead, hardly being anything other than the non-violent pro-peace activists that we are. In fact, even though we are members of the PPJPC, we had to meet outside the space that our dues had helped pay for! We were not a large group at all, simply because the office staff and new Chair of the group had already done what they could to keep the meeting from being publicized to its own membership. They have no plans to participate in the national protests against a War Against Iran, and did not want others to get involved in this activity. In fact, they plain just hate it when we try to democratically decide our own activities rather than taking their own orders about what should be planned by them. It wasn't a particularly interesting meeting, and we felt quite stymied. We had been accused of setting up another organization, but that was not the case, and the office staff well knew that. We have not paid with our time, energy, and money to build this group, just to let them run it into the ground without any effort on our part to do alternatively. We agreed among ourselves that

It’s Obama who’s running for Bush’s third term

Are you one in a million? Psycho administration thinks there are one million possible terrorists in the United States. So, actually the odds they think you are a terrorist are more like one in 300. If a cop beats a transient, but he can't remember, did it ever really happen? Nashville police injecting Versed to erase memories of police brutality. Gee, support Hillary much? New Yorker magazine cover depicts Barack Obama as a turban wearing muslim, and his wife as a terrorist, while an American flag burns in their fireplace, and picture of bin Laden hangs above the mantle. Why, if it weren't for yellow journalism, we'd have no journalism at all! Excerpts from Thomas McCullock's notes July 14, thomasmc.com.
