Cops Behaving Badly: Wanna file a complaint?

Be warned…you have to pass the blue wall just to get a complaint form:

This ten-minute montage was compiled from hidden-camera footage taken all over the US. Apparently, police using stalling tactics, intimidation, threats, etc. to prevent complaints being filed against their own, is a very common thing. They cannot and will not abide . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Wanna file a complaint?

Cops Behaving Badly: Doubleplusungood

Today’s entry in the annals of rotten cop behavior is a two-fer. First, from Florida, a disturbing case of racist elder abuse, caught on dashcam (despite the cop’s efforts to switch the camera off):

Details from Raw Story:

Technicians in Florida have recovered dashcam video of a Melbourne police officer beating a 66-year-old . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Doubleplusungood

Cops Behaving Badly: Fuck the Police (Before They Fuck You)

(Logo from the infamous Dave Rabbit sweatshirt, a limited-edition Vietnam War pirate radio joke product. Back story, in case you’re interested, here.)

Pardon my Anglo-Saxon and the explicit artwork, but given what shit is hitting the fan in Britain, it was only fittin’…

Undercover police officers routinely adopted a tactic of “promiscuity” with the . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Fuck the Police (Before They Fuck You)

Cops Behaving Badly: Death by pepper spray

Florida police bound, gagged and pepper-sprayed a mentally ill man until he died. Interestingly, this was reported by FUX Snooze, in a non-snoozing mode for a change. Let’s hear Megyn Fucking Kelly try to explain how “a food product, essentially” could cause the death of a depressed and vulnerable individual. I can hardly wait…

How to justify a police state, or “This ain’t Canada anymore”

How do you justify police brutality on the level of last year’s G20 summit? And how do you justify turning Canada into a most unCanadian police state? Well, it helps if you get the media on side, as whoever infiltrated an “anarchist” gathering and took this top-seekwit hidden recording found out. And the Toronto . . . → Read More: How to justify a police state, or “This ain’t Canada anymore”

Cops Behaving Badly: Yeah, they blend RIGHT in.

What? You didn’t think there’d be police infiltrators (or would-be infiltrators) at Occupy TO? Watch this, naïve soul… Yeah, guys, you’re so discreet with your butch haircuts, your steroid builds, and your earpieces and walkie-talkies and cute widdle cellphone cameras. Next time, just wear your uniforms; it’s not as though you don’t stick out like […] . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Yeah, they blend RIGHT in.

Cops Behaving Badly: A phrase goes literal

This was taken at Occupy Wall Street. Somehow, I don’t think this will go down as an effective way to improve police/community relations. . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: A phrase goes literal

Fear of a white shirt

A whiteshirt (the now infamous Anthony Bologna, police inspector, NYPD) pepper-sprays a group of peaceful women protesters at Occupy Wall Street. You can hear one of the blue-shirted officers say “I can’t believe he just fuckin’ maced her.” This incident took place near Union Square, in Manhattan. Dangerous Minds recently asked how many cops it […] . . . → Read More: Fear of a white shirt

Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx occupies Wall Street

It’s one of those drizzly, autumnal days around here. Usually, just the kind of weather that would send a kitty indoors, to curl up on her humans’ laps, with her tail wrapped cozily around all fours, purring and not letting them get up. But since Ms. Manx is a cyberkitty, and in any case has […] . . . → Read More: Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx occupies Wall Street

Cops Behaving Badly: To Serv(ic)e and…

Oh lord. I hope this officer did protect while he was, um, serving: According to The Smoking Gun, this unprofessional-but-oh-so-romantic moment took place in New Mexico, in an oft-vandalized location. Hence the camera on hand to capture it all. Apparently the man in uniform is with the Santa Fe sheriff’s department. And yes, that is […] . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: To Serv(ic)e and…

Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx looks at London

If the Stumpy Cat is meowing and pawing at my leg, I know there is something she wants me to address. And sure enough, our cyber-kitty friend has found several links of interest regarding the London riots… First up, Cort G. sent this Marxist link which gives the best summation so far of the root […] . . . → Read More: Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx looks at London

Cops Behaving Badly: Dumb on a DARE

Was this dude even remotely aware of the irony of what he was doing? If not, he is now: Sgt. Jerry Goodin, public information officer with the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg said Seymour Police Officer John C. Newcomb, 38, of Salem was arrested after the 1992 Ford Ranger he was driving north on […] . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Dumb on a DARE

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

A Canadian documentary that starts with the CIA’s failed, lame attempt to develop LSD as a truth serum/mind-control agent. Instead, it became the catalyst for thousands of old beatniks and young hippies, formerly staid scientists and political activists to all come together in a radical questioning of authority. Isn’t it funny how as soon as […] . . . → Read More: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

Vancouver riots: Revealing video shows what’s behind the “kiss” photo

No, it really wasn’t a hot make-out session. (Too bad, eh?) Here’s what really happened: If you think the rioters were bad, the cops were WORSE. (Like I often say: It’s never a riot till the cops show up.) They knocked down two people who had the bad luck to be just passing through, and […] . . . → Read More: Vancouver riots: Revealing video shows what’s behind the “kiss” photo

Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx attacks the Vancouver Riots

What’s that I feel pawing at my legs? What’s that meowing I hear? Oh, it’s our calico Stumpie friend, with a whole new batch of links. Whatcha got for us, Ms. Manx? The Vancouver riots, you say? Okay… First off, says the Manx, remember that police chief who got wank-listed here last Saturday? The one […] . . . → Read More: Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx attacks the Vancouver Riots

Le Snog

An enigmatic image from last night’s post-hockey riots apparently has CBC in a twit-storm: Actually, I like this image a lot better than the ones of rioters jumping on cop-cars. It’s a much truer reflection of what Vancouverites (and Canadians in general) are normally like. And no, rioting is NOT due to anarchy OR “just […] . . . → Read More: Le Snog

“Don’t keep looking for your brother, they threw him from a helicopter”

Pura Soto Rojas points to a headline: “SHOT”. It refers to the deaths, by secret firing squad, of leftist guerrillas during the “democratic” years of the Fourth Republic. Years which were not so democratic in fact, as the tragic story of her brother Víctor Ramón makes clear: “Víctor Ramón was born in Altagracia de Orituco […] . . . → Read More: “Don’t keep looking for your brother, they threw him from a helicopter”
