Video: Officer says Cops Practice Arbitrary Arrest, Extortion of Poor; Threatens to Arrest Teen for Smiling

Land of the free, or land of authoritarian forces that kill ~1,000 of their own people per year (according to a Federal study), imprison more people than any other society in history, and is “virtually alone in the world in incarcerating thousands of prisoners in longterm or indefinite solitary confinement, a form of torture”? (Amnesty)

Video content is also covered here on Alternet.

Might as well add these other videos that are getting attention at the moment:

    Something you need to consider if you work in law enforcement–a question of life or death that you need to answer, and answer now.

    Police Have No Duty To Protect Individuals

    Self-Reliance For Self-Defense — Police Protection Isn’t Enough! All our lives, especially during our younger years, we hear that the police are there to protect us. From the very first kindergarten- class visit of “Officer Friendly” to the very last time we saw a police car – most of which have “To Protect and Serve” emblazoned on their doors – we’re encouraged to give ourselves over to police protection. Court rulings also included in this link.

    according to the bild, the co-pilot who crashed the plane in the alps was being treated with more than one anti-depressant. many school shootings have also been linked to use of or recent withdrawal from common psychiatric medications.

    the use of anti-depressants by pilots is (hopefully?) likely to come under scrutiny. likewise, the medication history of cops who kill should be examined. (they should also be tested for steroid abuse)

    being a cop or a pilot is a tough, stressful job, these people are more likely to be on medications which provide little relief, which have not been tested in combination, and which are known to lead to depression, psychosis, and worse.

  • Cops are nothing but legalized gangs (and parasites) and their supporters are government boot lickers. End the government monopoly on force already

    Clearly these low life scum sucking rat fuck rat bastard larcenous murderous POS cops deserve acute lead poisoning. Just my opinion, I may be wrong.

      as with any other group, be it priests or doctors or cops, there are good ones and there are bad ones. the bad ones, in a just society, are tried and convicted by a jury of their peers. they are not brought to justice by further acts of violence. please stop posting your calls for same.

      as if it’s not transparent enough that the desired outcome is war between cops and civilians.

        The difference is these low life scum sucking rat fuck rat bastard larcenous murderous POS cops are trained to kill us and make up excuses to justify their crimes. Fuck’em.
