    OK, I'll agree with that WHEN the "good apples" start policing the "bad apples".

    The police, DA's & courts ALL protect these @ssholes from prosecution.
    Until that changes, the whole barrel is rotten !!

    [TD][h=1]This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories[/h]by Phillip Smith

    A Tennessee police chief gets caught misbehaving, so does a strung out Pennsylvania deputy, and a San Diego husband and wife cop team go down for dealing. Let's get to it:

    In Graysville, Tennessee, the Graysville police chief was arrested last Monday on charges he was improperly disposing of seized vehicles and dipping into seized cash. Police Chief Jason Erik Redden is accused of either taking for himself or returning to the original owner three of the vehicles, and is also being held responsible for $4,128 in missing seized cash and fees paid to the department. He is charged with seven counts of misconduct in office, two counts of theft over $1,000, and one count of theft under $500.

    In Washington, Pennsylvania, a Washington County sheriff's deputy was arrested last Wednesday after he sold the opiate maintenance drug suboxone to an undercover informant. Deputy Matthew Miller, 29, became former Deputy Miller the same day when the sheriff fired him after his arrest. Miller allegedly told the informant he was strung out on heroin and was selling the pills to get money.

    In San Diego, a husband and wife pair of San Diego police officers were arrested last Thursday on multiple drug charges amid an investigation into corruption in the department. Officer Bryce Charpentier is charged with possessing and transporting drugs, possessing a loaded firearm while under the influence, and conspiracy. His wife, Officer Jennifer Charpentier is charged with possessing, transporting, and selling drugs, and conspiracy. They have both been put on administrative leave.

    [h=2]Worst of the Month — July 2014[/h]August 7, 2014 @ 1:00 PM by Tim Lynch




    The worst police misconduct of July was the case of Eric Garner, who was killed by New York City police officers using a banned chokehold maneuver. A cell phone video of the incident shows Garner (who stood at least 6’3” and 350+ lbs.) arguing with police officers in an agitated state, then pulling back when officers tried to arrest him. Almost immediately, one of the officers started using an illegal chokehold maneuver to subdue Garner, at which point the 350+ pound asthmatic can be heard saying “I can’t breathe” repeatedly. Garner was pronounced dead a short time later. The medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide.

    Garner was accused of and being arrested for selling single, untaxed cigarettes on the street corner.

    Chokeholds have been banned since 1994 because they were determined to be too dangerous. Every officer and recruit is trained not to use them. In response to the incident, NYC Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has ordered a top-to-bottom review of use of force training methods, with retraining programs likely to follow. It’s a good step, but it won’t do Eric Garner and his six children any good.


    ___________________________________________________________




    The sexting case from Virginia is too awful and bizarre not to include as a “runner up.”

    Recall that 17-year old Trey Sims had been arrested for allegedly sending a video of his erect penis to his girlfriend, also a minor. Prince William County prosecutors charged the teen with two felony charges: for possession of child pornography and manufacturing child pornography. These charges could have landed him in jail until he reached 21 years of age and then put him on the sex offender list, potentially for the remainder of his life. All for ‘sexting’ his girlfriend.

    If it wasn’t bad enough already that prosecutors were willing to go forward with such drastic charges—and ones intended to protect children like Trey from adult predators—it gets worse. Manassas city police had already forcibly taken pictures of the teen’s penis when he was arrested, but that, apparently, wasn’t enough. Commonwealth’s attorney Claiborne Richardson told the teen’s lawyer that he either had to plead guilty or they would obtain a search warrant for pictures of his erect penis—which would be obtained by bringing the teen to a hospital and forcing him to take an erection-inducing drug while police officers took pictures of his forcibly-erect penis.

    Apparently, special software would then be used to compare the penises. When he did not plead guilty, substitute Juvenile Court Judge Jan Roltsch-Anoll granted the search warrant. Thankfully, it was never actually served.

    When word got out about what was happening, the government agents backed off a bit. Sims just recently agreed to a year of probation to avoid the more serious charges.

    Worst of the Month — September 2014

    October 3, 2014 @ 3:12 PM by Tim Lynch

    The worst misconduct of September goes to the still-unnamed police officer who shot John Geer last year and the police and federal investigators who have refused to release any information on the case a year after the shooting. Fairfax County police officers responded to a call from Geer’s longtime girlfriend who called 911 because Geer had been drinking and throwing her possessions into the lawn after she told him she was moving out. When officers arrived, they trained their weapons at Geer as they spoke with him in the doorway of his home for almost fifty minutes. Friends and family gathered to watch the situation. One of Geer’s daughters shouted from a neighbor’s home “Don’t you hurt my daddy!” Geer had been speaking calmly and holding his arms above his head, resting them on the doorframe from within, but when he moved his hands down the doorframe to about face-level, one of the officers abruptly fired a shot directly into Geer’s chest, as his best friend, father, and neighbors watched. Geer spun and closed the door before collapsing. The officers then waited an hour while Geer bled to death before sending in assistance. Over four hours later, Geer’s body was still left lying on the floor of his home.

    Things haven’t been handled much better in the year since the shooting. Geer’s family and friends still don’t even know the name of the shooting officer—who has been on paid desk duty since—whether the shooting was declared justified or not, or why trained negotiators were not called. State and federal investigators have taken no substantial public action on the case, and the family, which exhibited incredible patience for the better part of a year, has finally had to resort to a lawsuit.

    The refusal of the police to disclose even the name of the officer who shot and killed an unarmed man is just another example of the same troubling lack of transparency that we saw in the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. Police officers are human, and yes they make mistakes, but what possible excuse is there for circling the wagons and denying the public—and worse, the victims’ family and friends—the right to know what their public servants have done and which of them needs to be to held accountable? The resulting feeling among those affected, as Geer’s father described it, is “Frustrating to say the least—not knowing anything and having a feeling of helplessness, sadness, anger. Just wondering what’s going on and why nobody would tell us anything.” This is a case of one man shooting another unarmed man in the chest in front of dozens of witnesses. No complication can justify forcing that feeling of helplessness and anger on John Geer’s friends and family for over a year.

    The David Hooks Case

    October 2, 2014 @ 2:52 PM by Tim Lynch


    A criminal comes on to your property and steals your SUV. Later, the criminal, perhaps still under the influence of meth, tells the police that he found drugs on your property. The police proceed to sneak on to your property and, without announcing themselves, break down your back door. Frightened that the criminals have returned to your home, you retrieve a gun to protect yourself and your spouse. The police then open fire and you are killed in your own home. By the police.



    According to the Hooks family attorney, that is what happened to his client. Here is an excerpt from the attorney’s statement:


    On Wednesday, September 24th at 9:56 p.m., drug task force agent Chris Brewer made application for a search warrant before Faith Snell a non-attorney Deputy Magistrate of the Laurens County Magistrate Court. The facts submitted to Deputy Magistrate Snell to convince her that probable cause existed to issue the warrant consisted of the statement by Rodney Garrett a confessed burglar, thief, and a meth addict who was under the influence at the time of his arrest that the approximately 20 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, and 2 firearms found on him at the time of arrest had been stolen by him out of another vehicle at the Hooks home. Investigator Brewer also stated information he claimed came from an investigation involving Jeff Frazier. That investigation was in August 2009 over 5 years ago. A search warrant was issued at 9:56 p.m. by Judge Snell. This search warrant is invalid on its face as it does not comport with the requirements of the Constitution of State of Georgia nor the United States Constitution. Armed with an invalid search warrant and with less than an hour of preparation, at approximately 10:55 p.m. several members of the Drug Task Force and the Laurens County Sheriff’s Response Team arrived at David and Teresa Hooks home unannounced by emergency lights or sirens. There is no question the Officers were aware the home had been burglarized only two nights earlier.




    David and Teresa were under the impression that the burglars were back and that a home invasion was eminent. David armed himself to protect his wife and his home. Despite the fact that the illegal search warrant did not have a “no knock” clause the Drug Task Force and SRT members broke down the back door of the family’s home and entered firing in excess of 16 shots. These shots were from multiple firearms and from both 40 caliber handguns and assault rifles. Several shots were fired through a blind wall at David with the shooters not knowing who or what was on the other side of the wall. The trajectory of the shots, coupled with the number of shots infers a clear intent on behalf of the shooters to kill David Hooks.


    From WMAZ:

    Lauren’s County Sheriff’s department says they are not making any more statements on this case. They are directing all questions to the GBI. They’ve not responded.

    Neither agencies has identified the deputies involved in the raid, said how many of them fired shots, or said how many times Hooks was hit.

    Hooks was buried on Tuesday.

    Another Innocent American Dies in No-Knock Police Raid



    Posted on October 13, 2014
    by Philip Hodges



    A 59-year-old Georgia man is the latest victim of a no-knock police raid.

    The police had gotten a warrant to search the house of David and Teresa Hooks for meth. But guess who gave the police this information? A meth addict who had come to the Hooks’ house just 2 days prior to the police raid, burglarized their home, and stole their black SUV. The meth addict burglar told the police that he had found meth in the Hooks’ SUV, which turned out to be a lie.

    So, that burglary and theft of their SUV happened, and then just 2 days later, around 11:00 at night, a black SUV speeds up their driveway, and armed and hooded men wearing camo jump out. What do you think Mr. and Mrs. Hooks are thinking at this point? From Police State USA:


    Mrs. Hooks bolted for the bedroom to alert her sleeping husband. “The burglars are back,” she insisted. Earlier that week, the couple’s home had been burglarized and an SUV stolen from the driveway.

    Mr. Hooks, a 59-year-old businessman, sprang from his bed and picked up a firearm, then took a defensive stand to protect his wife and home from the intruders. As he exited his bedroom, the back door of the house was breached, and gun-wielding home invaders charged in.

    What happened next was described as “chaos.” The intruders used their weapons to send a hail of gunfire into the residence; a total of 16-18 shots from rifles and .40 caliber handguns.

    When the gun smoke cleared, it became evident that the intruders were actually a Drug Task Force and members of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Response Team (SRT). Mr. Hooks was killed without returning fire.

    The officers claimed to be looking for methamphetamines. After searching the home for forty-four (44) hours, not a single trace of narcotics was retrieved.


    Mrs. Hooks, who had been married to David for 25 years, has an attorney representing her and may file a lawsuit depending on the outcome of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s examination of the incident. The Telegraph added:


    Shook [Hooks’ attorney] said Hooks was a devoted husband and father, not a drug user or distributor. He had passed multiple background checks to work on military bases and was financially stable.

    “This is not a person who needs to be involved in criminal activity for financial gain. He did very well financially,” Shook said.

    His office is continuing its investigation and will await the GBI’s results before determining whether to file civil action or a wrongful death suit.



    These no-knock, middle-of-the-night raids based on questionable-at-best intel have to stop. In order for that to happen, the laws have to change, and the police have to be held accountable for their actions. If those things don’t change, then expect to see these happening more and more.

    Police Saw Tons of Cars Whiz by Their Speed Trap but They Didn’t Pull Them Over. The Cops Probably Didn’t Expect Someone to Record Their Conversation About It.

    Washington State Patrol Aircraft catches multiple police cars speeding and does nothing

    Caught this today on Highway 2 just out of Wenatchee. WSP had their aircraft up to catch speeders in the 60mph section of Hwy 2. Apparently there was a "DRE" drug recognition expert conference up in Lake Chelan today- so the WSP plane caught several marked and unmarked (and a motorcycle) doing well above the speed limit (26mph over in at least once case)

    The aircraft stopped calling out the speeds until ground units would confirm they were or were not a police car. If they were a police car they didn't get stopped.

    Watch the video and see what you think. Seems like the Washington State Patrol is okay with officers driving 20+ mph over the limit when not responding to any call or emergency.

    [TD][h=1]Cop on Paid Vacation After Being Caught Multiple Times Stealing, While in Uniform & Armed[/h]
    By Matt Agorist


    [video=youtube_share;KI5UhfkFeHw]http://youtu.be/KI5UhfkFeHw[/video]

    http://youtu.be/KI5UhfkFeHw



    Broward County, FL — Ramen noodles, eggs, bacon, top soil, and a poinsettia were among the items shoplifted by a Broward Sheriff’s Office detention deputy who was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing from a Coral Springs Walmart.

    The BSO’s Public Corruption Unit said it arrested Theodore Parrish, 51, and charged hi with misdemeanor petit theft.

    NBC Miami reports that BSO said that in each incident, Parrish allegedly went through the store's self-checkout lane to pay for his items. Detectives said Parrish scanned and paid for some items while intentionally placing others in a Walmart bag without scanning them.

    Walmart told BSO about the thefts on December 10 and Parrish turned himself in on Tuesday afternoon.

    The total monetary value of merchandise stolen by Parrish was more than $175.00.

    The information that we have now is that Parrish is currently on paid suspension.

    All the thefts -- committed on Nov. 16, Dec. 2, Dec. 4, Dec. 6 and Dec. 8 -- were captured on surveillance video, according to the police report.

    Apparently Parrish’s annual salary of $65,627 wasn’t enough to keep him from this theft spree; either that or he was drunk on his perceived authority, and did it, simply because he could.

    While these thefts were particularly small, the fact that several of them were conducted while Parrish was armed and in his uniform is quite troubling.

    This is probably why Walmart theft prevention declined to stop Parrish while he was in the store and instead notified the department. Had they tried to stop him in the store, while uniformed and armed, who knows how far the situation could have escalated.

    Instead of the above headline, we could be reading, “Walmart Employee Shot and Killed after Deputy Feared for his Life while Shopping.”

    Broward County is no stranger to corruption. A quick search in our archives reveals a plethora of misconduct and abuse.

    EDWARDSVILLE — Multiple charges have been filed against an Edwardsville police officer for a series of burglaries that were discovered following a weekend burglary at an Edwardsville salon, a release from Madison County State’s Attorney Thomas D. Gibbons said.


    Officer Brian Barker was originally charged Dec. 23 with burglary and official misconduct following an investigation into a burglary at Reality Salon and Spa.


    A 911 call was received at the Edwardsville Police Department around 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 21 after the burglary was discovered through the owner’s security system. Upon learning that an Edwardsville officer was suspected in the burglary, Edwardsville Police Chief Jay Keeven contacted Sheriff John Lakin and the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and requested that they handle the investigation, the release said.


    Following the initial investigation into the Reality Salon and Spa, the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office charged Barker with one count of Burglary, a Class 2 Felony, and one count of Official Misconduct, a Class 3 Felony. He is accused of stealing approximately $450 while on duty.


    Further investigation into unsolved burglaries in Edwardsville following Barker’s arrest led to additional burglary charges that were filed Friday morning. Baker is now facing eleven additional Burglary charges, a Class 2 Felony, and one count of Residential Burglary, a Class 1 Felony, for crimes committed between May 2012 and November 2014, the release said.


    Additionally, Barker is charged with Aggravated Unlawful Possession of Stolen Firearms, a Class X felony. The burglaries occurred at various businesses in the Edwardsville area including several law firms, retail establishments and another salon. The residential burglary occurred in Moro.


    State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons expressed disappointment on filing charges against Barker.


    “It’s disheartening filing charges against a law enforcement officer. Their sworn duty is to protect and serve our communities,” Gibbons said. “However, when they violate that trust, it is up to my office to ensure that they are held accountable for their actions. No person is above the law. The citizens of Madison County must have confidence in their justice system, so it is imperative that we ensure equal justice under the law.”


    If convicted, the charges carry penalties ranging from probation up to four to 15 years on the Class 1 Felony, three to seven years in prison on the Class 2 Felony and two to five years on the Class 3 Felony. Class X felonies are non-probationable and carry a penalty of six to 30 years in prison.


    The State’s Attorney’s Office has been advised by Keeven that Barker will be placed on administrative leave without pay. Barker’s bond was set at $100,000 on Friday’s charges and $75,000 on the original charges. He was released Thursday from the Madison County Jail in Edwardsville last night after posting $17,500 cash on the initial charges.


    Gibbons thanked Madison County Sheriff John Lakin for providing the immediate assistance and the investigative work of his department in conducting the independent investigation of the matter. He furthermore commended the Edwardsville Police Department for their immediate action upon learning of the allegation.


    The charges, as well as the statements made herein, are based upon probable cause. The defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.


    Information in this report was provided by the office of the State’s Attorney of Madison County.

    [TD][h=1]Man Holds Up Hands & Lies Down -- Cops Still Kick Him In The Face & Taser Him[/h]by Scott Kaufman

    A drug task force video of an arrest differs markedly from the police reports written by the plains clothes detectives involved in the incident, The Kansas City Star reports.

    The video — available below — begins with the final moments of a car chase between Timothy Whittle and two plains clothes detectives, Michael Chinn and Kip Bartlett.

    Chinn and Bartlett were members of the Mid-Missouri Drug Task Force, and they were approaching Whittle’s home in order to serve a warrant allowing them to search the premises for materials used to manufacture methamphetamine — but they never got the chance, as Whittle and another man left the home in an SUV and drove to a nearby property.

    Once they arrived, Whittle exited the SUV and entered a black pickup truck. At that point, task force officers charged and Whittle took off. The officers gave chase — as did a Missouri National Guard helicopter, which was recording the events.

    After a long pursuit, Whittle drove into a field, jumped out of the still-moving truck, and raised his hands in surrender. He then lay down on his stomach.

    In the video, the first detective to arrive immediately kicked Whittle in the face, while the second — identified as Chinn — handcuffed him. The first detective held a Taser to Whittle’s back and used it to subdue him. When Whittle lifted his face, blood can be seen streaming down it from a gash above his eyes.

    However, the official police reports filed by both detectives make no mention of the kick or its effect on Whittle.

    New York family left homeless after 18 police agencies destroy entire home while serving DUI warrant


    David Edwards

    [​IMG]
    David M. Cady Jr.'s home was destroyed in a police standoff (YouTube)



    A New York family has been left homeless after law enforcement agencies effectively destroyed their entire house in the process of serving a warrant for a DUI.

    The Ithaca Journal reported this week that 36-year-old David M. Cady Jr. had died after being barricaded in his home for three days.

    After Cady missed court dates for a DUI over the summer, a warrant had been issued, and the Tompkins County Sheriff Ken Lansing said that the suspect was convinced that he would go to jail. Authorities said that they had reason to believe that Cady had been traveling to Pennsylvania to purchase ammunition so he would be ready when deputies arrived.

    Deputies attempted to serve the warrant at around 7 p.m. on Dec. 30, which led to a three day standoff with Cady. Autopsy results later indicated that Cady died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The suspect’s wife, Melissa, and two sons were not harmed.

    Video that began circulating on Tuesday showed the damage caused to the Cady home when the 18 law enforcement agencies decided to go in after the suspect.

    The home, which easily could be mistaken for one that had been destroyed by a tornado, appears to have no external walls intact in the video. Some walls are only partially missing, while others are completely gone. The yard is scattered with shards of wood, windows, insulation and family belonging. Inside the home, food can still be seen sitting on the stove, but the kitchen and most of the other rooms are open to the outside elements.

    Up to 150 law enforcement and emergency personnel reportedly participated in the operation.

    In a statement on Tuesday, the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department said little about the damage to the house.

    “Eventually, law enforcement knew and anticipated needing to enter the residence, in order to take the subject into custody,” the statement insisted. “Based upon the information being developed through interviews and practices used by other agencies in the past, it became necessary to breech part of the outside area of the house to ensure the safety of all involved.”

    Danby Federated Church pastor Ed Enstine told The Ithaca Voice that the Cady family was now homeless.

    “She really has lost all the stability in her life in one fell swoop, so she will have to go through quite a period of readjustment,” Enstine said of Melissa Cady. “It’s pretty traumatic — this is awful stuff we’re dealing with.”

    According to the pastor, Cady’s wife worked in the service industry and had little extra money to recover from the tragedy.

    “She’s basically lived her own life and worked and doesn’t take handouts very easily, but in this case she’s basically back to square 1 … square 0, at this point,” he explained.

    The church was planning a chicken and biscuit dinner on Friday to take donations for the family.

    “We’re all just trying to figure out how to do something,” Enstine noted, adding that the church had already given her a small amount of money to get by.

    “She’s going to need a lot more than that,” he said.

    [TD]Extended Video Shows Aftermath of Tamir Rice Shooting; Cops Gave No Aid, Restrained Sister

    "This has to be the cruelest thing I've ever seen," says Rice family lawyer


    From Reason.com:



    Reporters for cleveland.com obtained extended footage of the killing of Tamir Rice. The full video demonstrates police officers' callous indifference to the boy they had wrongly shot. The two cops allowed him to bleed for several minutes; the first person to administer aid to Rice was actually an FBI agent who happened upon the scene while the officers stood around doing nothing.

    Well, that's not quite right. They did something--they intercepted Tamir's sister as she ran to help him, knocked her on the ground, wrestled with her, held her down, handcuffed her, and placed her in the squad car a mere 10 feet away from her mortally wounded brother. And it was there that she waited, according to cleveland.com.

    Cleveland police were responding to an emergency call claiming that Rice had a gun, although the caller made clear that the gun was very possibly a fake replica weapon. Police officials have insisted that the responding officers were unaware of that suspicion, however. Regardless, they shot him within moments of arriving on the scene.

    Timothy Loehmann, the officer who killed Rice, had a record of mental instability and was previous forced to resign from a different police force for his "dismal" gun performance.

    After shooting Rice, the officers failed to administer first aid for the subsequent four minutes. Eventually, an FBI agent administered aid. Paramedics arrived around minute eight.

    Walter Madison, an attorney representing the Rice family, said of the video: "This has to be the cruelest thing I've ever seen."

    [h=2]The Police Threat Is Too High[/h]
    By Paul Craig Roberts

    January 12, 2015



    The hypocrisy of American police is beginning to bother even law and order conservatives. The New York Police Department is rivaling the black community in Ferguson in keeping alive the murders of their community members.

    We are constantly reminded of how dangerous it is to be a police officer. A total of 50 police officers were reportedly killed last year in the “line of duty,” but the police themselves managed to kill 1,029 Americans during the same time period, most of whom were unarmed and innocent of wrongdoings.

    In other words, any encounter between the public and the police is more than 20 times more dangerous for the public than for the police.
    That should raise questions about the absence of restraint on the ability of police to use deadly force as a first resort. Yet authorities and white communities invariably defend police violence against the public.

    If Americans had half-decent educations, Americans would know that power comes from precedent. The police, like the executive branch, have now established themselves above the law. The laws that apply to the public do not apply to police, US presidents, presidential appointees, NSA, and CIA.

    The URL provides two short videos of Montana police officer Grant Morrison shooting to death in separate incidents two unarmed drivers pulled over by Morrison in routine traffic stops. In both cases, Morrison’s first actions are to scream obscenities and pull the trigger. Morrison comes across as completely crazed. It is inexplicable that Montana permits an armed lunatic to roam the streets pulling over cars. You try doing that.

    Clearly the police are privileged and, thereby, unaccountable.

    According to news reports, during eight years of what is called the Iraq War more US citizens were murdered by the police than US soldiers were killed in the war. In other words, US police are a greater threat to Americans than enemy forces are to US soldiers who have invaded a foreign country.

    The other day I heard a NY police commissioner on NPR defend the NY police violence against Eric Garner that resulted in Garner’s death. The police commissioner said that Garner more or less brought on his own death by not quickly cooperating with police orders. When asked if selling single cigarettes out of a pack was a sufficiently dangerous act to justify police use of prohibited choke holds, the commissioner said Garner’s single cigarette sales were depriving NY City of hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenues that could be used for more and better schools and hospitals.

    I was surprised to learn that selling “loosies” was a billion dollar business. Somehow that seems about as hard to believe as everything else authorities tell us.

    Other countries manage to have police forces that do not indiscriminately gun down their citizens. Yet most Americans will support the police until it happens to them, but keep in mind that every time you get in your car you have placed yourself in far greater danger from police than you face from terrorists.

    Las Vegas ‘sociopath’ cop won’t be fired for online posts about ‘race war’ and shooting Obama

    A Las Vegas police detective will keep his job despite drawing criticism from colleagues and local activists for his online posts about a “race war” and anti-government rhetoric, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

    Some of Detective Bobby Kinch’s co-workers reportedly brought the December 2013 Facebook posts to the attention of superiors. Kinch told the Sun that he was the victim of department politics. He was recently allowed to go back on duty following an extended suspension and internal investigation.

    “Let’s just get this over!” Kinch wrote in one post. “Race war, Civil, Revolution? Bring it! I’m about as fed up as a man (American, Christian, White, Heterosexual) can get!”

    At least one colleague later compared Kinch’s statements to the kind of posts made by Jerad and Amanda Miller before they shot and killed two LVPD officers in June 2014.

    “It’s obviously coming to a boiling point! I say ‘F*CK IT’!” Kinch stated in another angry post. “I’m ready now! Sooner or later, I would say sooner than later! Thought I could make a difference, thought it would get better! See the morale fabric of this Country get so trampled I wanna call it! GAME ON! I think we need a cleansing! Just me? What say you?”

    Several of Kinch’s fellow detectives expressed concern over the posts at the time, with one asking him not to share his views on “this stupid thing called Facebook.”

    “You’ve lost your mind,” Detective Joe Giannone responded. “This may be the dumbest sh*t you’ve ever posted. That’s saying a lot.”

    Deputy Chief Gary Schofield, former head of the department’s internal affairs division, alerted the Secret Service the following month regarding his online activity, allegedly saying that “a highly-trained officer in Las Vegas with access to weapons could be a threat to the president.”

    But former Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie stepped in less than an hour before federal officials raided Kinch’s home.

    “It was about to be a disaster,” one police official told the Sun. “We had 30 minutes until doors were being kicked in.”

    The Sun also reported that Kinch conducted an investigation in 2007 on his own concerning the death of his mother after a robbery. Kinch reportedly believes a “Black gang” killed her, despite a lack of evidence suggesting that the attacker was either Black or in a gang. A department spokesperson said the case is currently cold.

    “Everybody liked Bobby,” a fellow officer said. “But whatever happened to his mother affected him to the point where I’m not sure he should be on the street interacting with citizens.”

    Investigators looking into Kinch’s case also received a photo, taken by an unidentified union official, of Kinch pointing a handgun at a collectible plate with President Barack Obama’s face on it. The plate was reportedly a gag gift from fellow officers.

    Kinch said that officers with “an ax to grind” targeted him after he complained about union leaders appearing at a election party for new Sheriff Joe Lombardo. The union official, Kinch told the Sun, intentionally held on to the picture before using it to try to discredit him.

    Kinch also insisted that his posts were taken out of context, and that he would focus future posts on gun-control legislation and the alleged “knockout game” targeting people in New York City.

    “I didn’t call for a race war,” he said. “I said, ‘If there was going to be one.’ I didn’t want there to be one. That comment had nothing to do with a particular race. I said all races. That’s why it flies in the face of common sense to make that jump.”

    But one officer who asked to remain anymous told the Sun that keeping Kinch on the job cost the department a chance to “do the right thing.”

    “It would have been the easiest thing in the world to say, ‘Look, you’re upset with what’s going on in Ferguson? Well, we had an officer here that did this crap, and we fired him,’” the officer said. “But we dropped the ball.”

    Laura Martin, a member of the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, also expressed her doubts about Kinch’s ability to serve the public, calling his posts “incredibly scary.”

    “There are a lot of good cops, but some of them have really bad attitudes [toward minorities],” she said. “They aren’t mentally there. It would be a service to the public if you don’t have a sociopath with weapons going into people’s houses and pulling people over.”

    Cops Steal $18,000 from a Man, Who Broke NO LAW, Because a Drug Dog Alerted to Cash


    By Mike Sawyer on January 5, 2015


    Monroe County, TN — A Tennessee man, who has committed no crime, was forced to file a federal lawsuit to try and get back his property after police robbed him during a traffic stop.

    El A. Willis wasn’t charged with a crime and never harmed anyone. However, Willis is now having to fight an uphill legal battle to get back $18,480.00 from the thieving hands of the Monroe County Sheriff’s department.

    In February of last year, Willis was the passenger in a rental vehicle driven by his girlfriend, Shonta Williams. Detective Bobby Queen, with the Monroe County Sheriff’s department, claimed he saw the sedan change lanes without a signal.

    He then ordered the car to pull over. Detective Queen phoned in the stop to the “Blue Lightning Operations Center” (BLOC) which is a drug interdiction effort by federal, state and local governments. BLOC noted that Williams was driving on an expired license. Willis, however, had a valid license and the rental car was in his name.

    Willis was a passenger in this vehicle, whose driver changed lanes without a blinker, but this fact was irrelevant to Queen as he felt it necessary to pat the innocent man down. During the pat down, Queen found a locked money bag. He then demanded that Willis open the bag.

    Willis explained to the deputy that he was traveling to Atlanta, Georgia to make a music deal with the cash — and his rental agreement specified that he was allowed to travel in both Tennessee and Georgia. Unable to bust the couple for anything but minor traffic violations, Queen then claimed to smell marijuana and had a drug dog sniff the car and the money bag.

    It is widely known that a large percentage (upwards 0f 90%) of U.S. paper money contains trace amounts of cocaine. Having a large amount of cash will most assuredly alert a drug dog.

    In fact, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that government does not have probable cause to seize cash from motorists based only on a drug-detection dog’s reaction; stating specifically that the majority of money in circulation has drugs on it.
    But court precedents and ethical enforcement of the law apparently mean very little to detective Queen and the drug dog predictably alerted to the bag of money. However, no drugs were found.

    According to the Newspaper, further testing of the rental vehicle was done with ion swabs, but these swabs were “misplaced” during the investigation. A second swab test on the money yielded a positive result.

    Federal officials have insisted that the money swabs are plenty enough evidence to prove that the money is linked to the drug trade and subject to confiscation; because most drug dealers rub their cash down with drugs, right?

    Obviously Willis and his attorney dispute the claim that this money was linked to drugs.

    “The narcotics dog’s alert to Mr. Willis’ money is not enough probable cause given prior case law,” Lomonaco wrote to the court. “The $5000 in United States Currency case highlighted the various evidence that exists showing the large percentage of currency that has been contaminated from drug residue. Therefore, the dog’s positive alert is not enough to establish probable cause, especially since the dog alerted to the money after the money was already seized… Ms. Williams was the reason why the car was stopped in the first place, but the money that was seized did not belong to her, so her actions did not give the police officer probable cause to seize the money of Mr. Willis.”


    The first hearing in this case was held last month as federal prosecutors tried to make their case, seeking permanent confiscation of the cash, taken from Willis nearly a year ago.

    Prosecutors have been trying to find Williams to testify, but certified mail sent to summon her has been returned unclaimed.

    The robber barons are also trying to use a technicality to deny Willis a hearing because he did not file the proper form. Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley Jr. has yet to rule on the matter.


    Road piracy in the US has reached epic proportions.

    It has gotten so bad that the Canadian government has issued a public service announcement for its citizens warning them that American Road Pirates, aka police officers may very well rob them upon entry into the US.

    Since September 2001 there have been 62,000 incidents of road piracy; resulting in a booty of over $2.5 billion.

    In the US, “298 departments and 210 task forces have seized the equivalent of 20 percent or more of their annual budgets since 2008” according to the Post.

    Some might try and say that this money and property is obviously “taken from criminals” in order to rationalize this theft on a massive scale. However, as is evident in the case of Mr. Willis, the government does not have to charge you with a crime, let alone convict you, to take your property and after they steal your property the burden of proof is on you to get it back.

    Only one sixth of the 62,000 cases of cash forfeitures to police in the last decade have been challenged in court due to the high cost of challenging the state; not too mention that since their money was stolen, even if they once had the funds to challenge the theft, they may not any longer.

    The justice department’s asset forfeiture fund in 2011 was $1.8 billion.

    In Philadelphia alone, more than $64 million in seized property has been taken in the last decade and 100% of it has gone into the pockets of cops, judges, and other bureaucrats with a hand in the treasure chest.

    But these billions stolen from the citizens of this country by the ones who claim to keep them safe, are just an example of a few bad apples, right? It’s most assuredly not a systemic problem resulting from the glaring unaccountable nature of the state.
