American Cops: Armed & Dangerous

Jamar Clark, 11/15/15 Minneapolis, MN:

Two Minneapolis police officers shot Clark, claiming he “interfered” with emergency responders helping an assault victim. Activists and witnesses maintain that Clark was unarmed and handcuffed when he was shot.

No officers have been charged with a crime for killing Jamar.

Despite public protests, occupations, direct action, and increased public scrutiny, U.S. police killed more people in 2015 than in 2014. While numbers vary from source to source  — the website killedbypolice.net found police have killed 1,186 people in 2015 (the U.S. government currently does not track how many people are killed in police encounters.)

The data from killedbypolice.net show that white people are the largest group of killed by the police. But when taken together, the number of people of color killed by police — Latino, black, Asian, and indigenous people — surpasses the number of whites. As ThinkProgressnoted last year, young black men are 21 times more likely to be killed by cops than young white men, according to a ProPublica analysis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also compiled data which show that people of color are most likely to be killed by cops overall.

The data also show that California, Texas, and Florida lead the U.S. in terms of deadly police encounters.

Key Findings:

  • Police killed at least 102 unarmed black people in 2015, nearly twice each week. 

  • Nearly 1 in 3 black people killed by police in 2015 were identified as unarmed, though the actual number is likely higher due to underreporting

  • 37% of unarmed people killed by police were black in 2015 despite black people being only 13% of the U.S. population

  • Unarmed black people were killed at 5x the rate of unarmed whites in 2015

  • Only 10 of the 102 cases in 2015 where an unarmed black person was killed by police resulted in officer(s) being charged with a crime, and only 2 of these deaths (Matthew Ajibade and Eric Harris) resulted in convictions of officers involved. Only 1 of 2 officers convicted for their involvement in Matthew Ajibade’s death received jail time. He was sentenced to 1 year in jail and allowed to serve this time exclusively on weekends. Deputy Bates, who killed Eric Harris, was sentenced to 4 years for murdering an unarmed man. This is the only cop who has served time for murders committed by police in 2015. 


The Peaceresource editor’s Note:
I read ALL of these incidents.  Why do we allow this?
If you read these 102 cases of police assault, killings, and flat out murder,
perhaps you will find a reason to stand up and fight back for justice.
We ARE under attack.

Here are the names and stories about the UNARMED PEOPLE of color murdered by police.  

(Ordered by the date the person was killed, starting with the most recent)

Hillary’s crimes cannot be erased…

“In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.”

Most people do not hate Hillary, they hate the war machine she endorses and supports.

Clinton, who served in the U.S. Senate from 2001 to 2009 and as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, has supported every major recent U.S. war and intervention.
 
a look at her record:
During her time as a senator from New York, Clinton voted in favor of the Patriot Act, a controversial piece of legislation due to concerns about civil liberty violations, including the indefinite detention of immigrants, and the expansion of law enforcement’s power to search homes, businesses, and electronic communications — often without a court order.
6_9_2015_dem-2016-clinton-282www.washingtontimesdot.com01_c0-29-2334-1389_s885x516 Clinton supports the United States’ traditional allies in the Middle East as well, like Saudi Arabia and Israel. She has also penned an opinion piece for the Washington Post, where she expressed her strong admiration for Henry Kissinger.
Clinton, …  supported the post-9/11 invasion of Afghanistan.
 
The New York senator voted in favor of the 2002 Iraq War Resolution. This sent U.S. troops into Iraq, destroyed the country and created the chaos in the region today.
Clinton introduced legislation in 2005 to increase the size of the U.S. Army by 80,000 soldiers due to difficulties the troop force was facing in Iraq.

1246205860wwwdotelmundodot.es_0That same year, she helped to ensure that Manuel Zelaya, the democratically-elected president of Honduras, who was overthrown in a military coup in 2009, would not return to office. …

 

In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.

After becoming Secretary of State in 2009, Clinton supported Obama’s decision to send an additional 21,000 troops into Afghanistan.

The secretary then supported greater contact with Free Syrian Army rebels in Syria and wanted to arm them.
Clinton supported Israel’s attacks on Gaza last summer, which killed over 2,300 people and left almost 500,000 displaced.
More recently, she supported a bombing campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)…
When asked about moral scruples, Hillary the hawk’s response was: “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2015/04/19/war-hawk-hillary-hell/


Clinton’s actions as Secretary of state were war crimes. She should be in jail, not the White House. She broke the law, cost us billions and killed millions. Not small potatoes.

Portland Police Bureau Calling the Shots

So far, PDX Police Bureau officers have been provided with a license to kill at will, even unarmed citizens, without accountability. This is the signal that various mayors and PDX City Councils have delivered over the last 20 years.

So does Portland Police Bureau policy need to be corrected? Does it ever!

fightbackSo far, PDX Police Bureau officers have been provided with a license to kill at will, even unarmed citizens, without accountability. This is the signal that various mayors and PDX City Councils have delivered over the last 20 years.

One set of laws for us and a whole ‘nuther set of exceptions to laws for the police. This is not how it’s supposed to work.
Accountability matters, and so do human lives.

http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/otis

But “Don’t Choke ‘Em, Smoke ‘Em”.. attitudes still exist in both officers on the street and justicepoliceadministration. If the bureau, city council and mayor persist in their machinations, the DOJ may have to step in, restore the rule of law, and start from scratch.

http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/keatonotis

Otherwise members of the PDX Police bureau will continue to ignore the law and misuse and abuse citizens. When the people we hire choose to beat-up, target and kill citizens at will…. it is time to lay down the law and fire officers who break the law..

 The murders of Aaron Campbell, Keaton Otis,  and James Chasse, Jr. have never been resolved. None of the officers who broke the law and violated Police Department Procedures have been charged, tried,or prosecuted for these crimes. We, the citizens of Portland, Oregon have paid millions for the crimes committed by PDX police officers, yet none of these officers have been disciplined. They continue to serve in spite of their crimes. The shootings of James Jahar Perez and Kendra James may have been forgotten by some, but we have yet to see accountability or justice.

Abusive American Cops: a bigger problem than most admit

“These problems aren’t rare, they aren’t isolated, and they are taking an enormous human and financial toll on our country. If we are to ever properly address this problem, we cannot do so if we do not honestly admit its expansive size, scope and depth.”

police-bad-copsLet’s stop saying bad police officers are rare. They’re plentiful from coast to coast.

1. The ugliness knows no geographical or political boundaries. It’s truly nationwide.
2. Corrupt, racist, violent, sexist police officers aren’t just low-level newbies, but  chiefs and captains.

“These problems aren’t rare, they aren’t isolated, and they are taking an enormous human and financial toll on our country. If we are to ever properly address this problem, we cannot do so if we do not honestly admit its expansive size, scope and depth.

60825578A rare problem will get a tiny solution. That’s what we’re getting right now, but the United States is facing a true moral human rights crisis with police brutality and corruption in our country. The United Nations just sharply criticized our country for our police brutality crisis. For the first time in its history, Amnesty International is sending human rights monitors to the United States to monitor American police and is issuing scathing reports on what it is finding.

For millions of Americans, this issue is the most important issue in our nation. It’s time we act like it.”

Just How Many Bad Cops are There and What’s Their Impact?
bc1

9,000 bad cops in the US is a massive problem. 90,000 bad cops in the US is total disaster. People are dying. Unarmed people, often in front of witnesses, sometimes even on camera. We as a nation are simply accepting the process by which justice is meant to be be served. We are accepting that 90,000 (or even 9,000) bad cops on our streets with our children is somehow acceptable.

So, this is the state of the nation. What can we do?

Imagine how much it would improve if every man, woman and child who witnessed a police interaction took out their phones and cameras and captured video of it. Someone gets pulled over, 10 people begin filming. A cop approaches a teenager in the mall, 20 people start filming. Every time. Imagine if every cop knew that every time he was in public WE would be there to hold him accountable. Imagine…

How do corrupt police officers get away with crimes?

An Alabama police officer reportedly wanted to murder a local resident and make it look like a case of self-defense. The murder didn’t happen, but the officer wasn’t charged.

Officer Troy Middlebrooks of the Alexander City Police Department kept his job after authorities there paid the resident, Vincent Bias, $35,000 to avoid being publicly sued over the incident, according to The Guardian.

THE DRONE PAPERS

~That “Drones strikes—which are being conducted in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somlia—are illegal is cut and dry.

peace-conversion-task-force-cartoon-sized-down-adapted-300x235US officials responsible for carrying out drone strikes may have to stand trial for war crimes, says a report by Amnesty International, which lists civilian casualties in the attacks in Pakistan. Human Rights Watch has issued similar report on Yemen.

~That “Drones strikes—which are being conducted in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somlia—are illegal is cut and dry. Article 2 of the U.N. Charter states that “All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.” Under the Charter, there are only two circumstances under which the use of force is legitimate (i.e., not illegal): One, when the use of force is in self-defense against armed aggression, and, two, when the U.N. Security Council has authorized it. These drone strikes are not actions that defend the United States from armed aggression against its borders or sovereignty, and they have not been authorized by the Security Council. Thus, they are incontrovertibly illegal.”

THE DRONE PAPERS
by Jeremy Scahill

droneone“From his first days as commander in chief, the drone has been President Barack Obama’s weapon of choice, used by the military and the CIA to hunt down and kill the people his administration has deemed — through secretive processes, without indictment or trial — worthy of execution. There has been intense focus on the technology of remote killing, but that often serves as a surrogate for what should be a broader examination of the state’s power over life and death.
 
…The implicit message on drone strikes from the Obama administration has been one of trust, but don’t verify.
 
…Whether through the use of drones, night raids, or new platforms yet to be unleashed, these documents lay bare the normalization of assassination as a central component of U.S. counterterrorism policy.
 
|
… faulty intelligence has led to the killing of innocent people, including U.S. citizens, in drone strikes.
 
 
…the internal view of the people being hunted by the U.S. for possible death by drone strike is: “They have no rights. They have no dignity. They have no humanity to themselves. They’re just a ‘selector’ to an analyst. You eventually get to a point in the target’s life cycle that you are following them, you don’t even refer to them by their actual name.”
 
rainy-day-reading
…documents detailing a special operations campaign in northeastern Afghanistan, Operation Haymaker, show that between January 2012 and February 2013, U.S. special operations airstrikes killed more than 200 people. Of those, only 35 were the intended targets. During one five-month period of the operation, according to the documents, nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets. In Yemen and Somalia, where the U.S. has far more limited intelligence capabilities to confirm the people killed are the intended targets, the equivalent ratios may well be much worse.
 
“Anyone caught in the vicinity is guilty by association,” the source said. When “a drone strike kills more than one person, there is no guarantee that those persons deserved their fate. … So it’s a phenomenal gamble.”
 
…The architects of what amounts to a global assassination campaign do not appear concerned with either its enduring impact or its moral implications. “All you have to do is take a look at the world and what it’s become, and the ineptitude of our Congress, the power grab of the executive branch over the past decade,” the source said. “It’s never considered: Is what we’re doing going to ensure the safety of our moral integrity? Of not just our moral integrity, but the lives and humanity of the people that are going to have to live with this the most?”

Stop Drilling in the Arctic! Obama betrayed us Again…

Oil companies like Shell, which recently received the green light from the Obama administration to begin drilling in the Chukchi Sea as soon as this summer, have been trying to gain access to the Arctic for years. Now Obama has allowed it.

Greenpeace activists board the ice breakers Fennica and Nordica in Helsinki. The activists protest against Shell's Arctic oil drilling plans by dropping banners reading
Greenpeace activists board the ice breakers Fennica and Nordica in Helsinki. The activists protest against Shell’s Arctic oil drilling plans by dropping banners reading “Save the Arctic. Stop Shell”. The government owned company Arctia Shipping has contracted the ice breakers to support Shell’s drilling for the drilling seasons 2012-2014.

Why do people support Obama when he supports drilling in the Arctic, offshore drilling, murdering prisoners, 27 unnecessary wars of choice, the suspension of habeas corpus, sending illegal drones knowing each kills an average of fifty innocent people.

If you want this irresponsible drilling stopped, contact the most powerful man on the planet… as if if would do you any good.

(He is not on our side, he is in Shell’s pocket.)

Obama administration grants Arctic drilling approval to Shell

Cindy Shogan, executive director of the Alaska Wilderness League, called it the wrong choice.

“This decision puts the fate of the fragile Arctic Ocean, and our climate future, in the hands of Shell Oil,” she said in a statement.

resistOil companies like Shell, which recently received the green light from the Obama administration to begin drilling in the Chukchi Sea as soon as this summer, have been trying to gain access to the Arctic for years. Now Obama has allowed it.

Theoretically, Obama could have tried to keep Shell and other oil companies out of the Arctic in a few different ways. The most stringent level of protection, according to Greenpeace’s Cassady Sharp, would be to declare the Chukchi Sea as a marine sanctuary — the marine equivalent to defining an area as wilderness. Oil and gas drilling is generally prohibited in marine areas designated as National Marine Sanctuaries by NOAA regulations.

But he chose not to. Instead, he told them to go ahead and take the risk. (With a known 75% chance of a spill.)

nospillAccording to Niel Lawrence, project director for National Resources Defense Council’s Alaska Project, Obama could also use the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) to withdraw the entire U.S. Arctic outer continental shelf from leasing eligibility —

But he chose not to.

Obama could cancel the lease that gives Shell — and other oil companies — the right to drill in the area, something that 18 senators … asked him to do in a letter earlier this week. The current lease runs through 2017, meaning that canceling the lease would prevent Shell and other companies from drilling in the area at least through 2017.

puppetBut he chose not to.

“Shell still has not submitted a new or updated Oil Spill Response Plan for 2015,” Lawrence said. “We also know that there still are no spill response methods proven effective in situ in an Arctic Ocean environment.”

But drilling in this sensitive area, knowing a spill is likely, Obama sided with Shell.

He is not on our side…. and never has been.

Anonymous Says ‘Sandra Bland Was Murdered’, Calls For National ‘Day of Rage’

Since Sandra Bland was killed in police custody, a number of theories have arisen regarding how she died and why. Few believe that she committed suicide, and the investigation into her death has now shifted gears from a suicide investigation, to a homicide.

This is big. This is HUGE! ‪#‎Anonymous‬ calls for a national ‪#‎DayOfRage‬ for ‪#‎SandraBland‬ and says pointblank: ‪#‎SandraWasMurdered‬!

Anonymous just weighed in on the death of Sandra Bland, and the “hacktivist” group makes it clear: “Sandra Bland was murdered.”

A video was recently uploaded by Anon Intel Group, and it believes there is no question that Sandra Bland was murdered.

The transcripts for the video are as follows:

DWB_zps0bwsaxwoThe Anonymous collective is enraged at the failed attempt by Waller County PD and the Texas Trooper Association to mask a blatant act of crime against an innocent woman. And we will not stand as Sandra’s death becomes another hashtag and then a statistic.

We, Anonymous, are calling on the citizens of the United States to commit to a day of rage for Sandra Bland and all who have been murdered at the hands of ruthless law enforcement officials who know no honor. Cities around the United States will rise up in unison and call for Sandra Bland’s justice.

We, not as Anonymous but as citizens of the United States, are tired of the cycle of murders and coverups made by police departments across the nation. We demand that each police chief at each protesting city to come out to the crowds and renew their pledge to protect the people they serve.

We also demand the immediate arrest of Brian Encinia and the resignation of both Waller County’s District Attorney and the Waller County’s Sheriff.

If you do not take Brian Encinia into custody, we will come after all of you. All your secrets will be leaked. You will all be vulnerable. We all know where you live.

Just days ago, we reported on speculation sweeping social media that suggested the mugshot taken of Sandra Bland indicated she was already dead.

Since Sandra Bland was killed in police custody, a number of theories have arisen regarding how she died and why. Few believe that she committed suicide, and the investigation into her death has now shifted gears from a suicide investigation, to a homicide.

While the evidence is far from conclusive, these are definitely questions worth asking.

Some of the question that people have posed about the mugshot image include:

Why does Sandra already have an orange jumpsuit on in a mugshot supposedly taken during in-processing?

Why are the locks of her hair descending backwards, as though she is laying down, rather than standing up? If she was standing up, her locks should be hanging straight down, as they are in every other image of her we have where she has locks.

Her eyes seem focused on nothing.

Edvard Munch-886497The shadow to our right indicates to some that she is laying down.

Her face, collagen, fat, loose musculature, is all seeming to fall backwards, rather than down. This too would seem to indicate that she is laying down.

On the right side of the image, we can see the left side of her face (our right), drooping lower than the opposite side. Some have suggested this indicates effects of oxygen depletion to the brain.

What do you think?
