Florida cop, 41, who shot dead black musician whose SUV had broken down is sentenced to 25 years in prison

  • Nouman Raja, 41, was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Thursday, after he was found guilty on charges of manslaughter and attempted-first degree murder
  • He fatally shot Corey Jones on October 18, 2015, after Raja approached Jones during a plainclothes patrol after spotting the 31-year-old stopped on a highway
  • Prosecutors said Raja escalated what should've otherwise been a routine interaction. He later fired six shots at Jones, killing him with a bullet to the heart
  • Raja is the first Florida police officer in 26 years to be tried for an on-duty killing, and the first in three decades to be convicted
  • 'The sweetest sound was the click of those handcuffs,' one of Jones' family members told reporters outside the courtroom

Prominent surgeon who hit a cop with her illegally parked car when she tried to flee parking ticket dispute WINS $1.2m lawsuit after claiming officers used excessive force

  • Rachel Wellner, 43, initially filed a $30 million suit against the city, claiming her civil rights were violated when an officer allegedly pushed her and grabbed her
  • According to a police report, she told the officers: ‘I'm a doctor. I have patients that are dying. I’m the hero, the cops are not...I have to go’
  • However, in her suit, Wellner claimed the officers had been physically and verbally abusive for her, so she decided to flee the scene
  • At Friday’s trial, Officer Niguel Vega admitted during that he had come into physical contact with Wellner, but denied using excessive force
  • The jury of six women and four men voted unanimously in favor of Wellner, but awarded her far less money than she initially requested

  • The five men wrongly convicted over the 1989 rape of a white female jogger in Central Park are speaking out 30 years after the event
  • The group, known as 'Central Park Five', were teenagers when they falsely confessed to the shocking crime that made global headlines
  • They were exonerated after a decade in prison when Matias Reyes, a serial rapist, confessed in 2002 and DNA linked him to the scene
  • The five men reached a $41 million settlement with the city
  • A new Netflix miniseries by Ava DuVernay seeks to re-examine the famous case and 'humanize' its subjects

Land of the free: Cops raid journalist's home and kidnap him after he refuses to name source for cop-damning article



Matt Agorist
The Free Thought Project
Mon, 13 May 2019 00:00 UTC






Despite multiple laws on the books protecting journalists from revealing their sources, a journalist in California was raided after refusing to reveal his.

In the land of the free, journalists are now being raided by SWAT teams in an effort to find out their sources and this is in spite of the law protecting journalists from this very act. Freelance journalist Bryan Carmody just fell victim to the police state in California as multiple San Francisco cops with sledge hammers and weapons began breaking down his door last week in an effort to find out his source for a leaked police report.

As the Society for Professional Journalists points out, California's Shield Law protects journalists from being held in contempt for refusing to disclose their sources' identities and other unpublished/unaired information obtained during the news gathering process (California Constitution, Article I, § 2(b); California Evidence Code § 1070(a)). California Penal Code section 1524(g) provides that "no warrant shall issue" for any item protected by the Shield Law.

Despite this protection under the law, police still raided Carmody's home.

According to a report from NPR:
The raids on Carmody's home and office are the latest in a series of events concerning the death of San Francisco public defender Jeff Adachi in February, at age 59.

Within hours of Adachi's collapsing in a San Franscisco apartment, details from a leaked police investigation into his death were already showing up in news reports, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

A number of the details in the police report were salacious, suggesting that perhaps one or more members of the police department were trying to tarnish the reputation of Adachi, who was known as a police watchdog and fierce advocate for criminal justice reform. In San Francisco, a public defender is an elected position.​
After Carmody sold the report to several outlets, it showed up everywhere and this likely infuriated the police department.

"There were leaks happening all over the place," Carmody recalled to the Los Angeles Times.

Due to the nature of the report painting police in a negative light and hurting their image, the raid could've been retaliatory in nature. Indeed, since it was in direct violation of California law, it appears as such.

According to Carmody, before the raid, two cops came to his home to demand he tell them the source of his report. However, knowing full well that he did not have to, Carmody politely refused. Two weeks later, a team of cops showed up.

Carmody recalls the officers showing up to his home, who began smashing in his door with a sledge hammer and a battering ram, without knocking. To avoid having the front of his home demolished by the raid, Carmody opened the door.


"I don't think it was right to break my door down," he said in an interview. "I'm one of the original independent media companies in San Francisco. This is outrageous."

When the police came into his home, they kidnapped Carmody for over six hours, holding him in handcuffs.


"I'm smart enough not to talk to federal agents, ever," Carmody told The Washington Post. "I just kept saying 'lawyer, lawyer, lawyer.'"

While they held Carmody captive, the officers tore his home apart, confiscating all of his computers and equipment.

"It's designed to intimidate," Carmody's lawyer, Thomas Burke, told The Associated Press. "It's essentially the confiscation of a newsroom."

Naturally, the police are standing by the Stasi-style raid of a journalist's home, and referred to Carmody's detainment and theft of his equipment as part of an "investigation."

David Stevenson, a spokesman for the San Francisco police, told the Chronicle that the "search warrant executed today was granted by a judge and conducted as part of a criminal investigation into the leak of the Adachi police report." He called it "one step in the process of investigating a potential case of obstruction of justice along with the illegal distribution of a confidential police report."

As NPR notes, Burke said that normally journalists would receive a subpoena, and then get a lawyer to ensure the proper protections. "So much information has nothing to do with the purpose of their investigation," he said. "If you are looking for one piece of information, that's why you issue a subpoena."

But this did not happen and instead, police carried out an extremely disturbing raid on a journalist.

Luckily, because Carmody had committed no crime, he was eventually released, but not before the cops took the report, stole his property, and damaged his home. This is what journalism looks like in 2019.
