Now this video is a bit difficult to explain. It appears that police took an arrested protester, made him kneel in front of them, and then took a group picture in Pittsburgh.
"The police are to the government as the edge is to the knife," insists sociologist David Bayley, who apparently couldn't explain why the typical tax-feeder isn't the sharpest blade in the cutlery drawer. One suitable example is the specimen w

After reading the "Do you have the Right to Flip off a Cop?" article I was reminded of this video I saw on YouTube some time ago.
David Hackbart was mad, and he wanted to show it, but he didn't think he would end up in federal court protecting his right to a rude gesture and demanding that the city of Pittsburgh stop violating the First Amendment rights of its residents.
A former police officer who worked for over a dozen departments in Texas is behind bars, held on numerous felony charges including engaging in organized criminal activity, promotion of prostitution, solicitation of a minor and two counts of attemptin

arguing with Willis about her right to make a phone
call. About a minute later, Willis walked over and turned off the video

floor in a pool of her own blood.
Kimia McMoore, 34, said she was talking to her daughter on her Bluetooth cell phone outside her apartment on North Hill Parkway when Fraser began harassing her.
According to a police report, Fraser asked McMoore who she was talking to and she pointed to her Bluetooth. Fraser then followed her to her car and attempted to detain her, McMoore told police.
McMoore said she pushed Fraser away and the two continued to argue. She called 911.
That's when Fraser left momentarily and called for back-up, claiming the woman was being disorderly. He returned with a set of handcuffs and placed a cuff on the woman's right wrist, the report states.
On the video you can hear the deputy saying, "Turn that camera off and give it to me because that is now evidence of my traffic investigation." It shows the second time in just a couple hours that Maricopa County deputies or detectives tried to take a camera, claiming it's evidence.
On at least three separate occasions over the last two weeks, deputies
in Arizona used intimidation tactics against people filming them;
threatening them with arrest and even seizing one man’s camera before
deleting his video.

There are many small-town speed traps across the country, but Jericho, Arkansas may be one of the most outrageous speed traps out there. A big reason why speed trap towns are able to stay in business for years is that they generally leave the locals alone. After all, if the tickets are going to out-of-towners, there’s no reason for the local citizens to be upset.
A Volusia County deputy is the subject of an internal investigation after WESH 2 News showed a video to the sheriff that allegedly shows a deputy using his Taser gun on a friend for fun.
The beginnings of a multi-million dollar law suit is underway against the Phoenix Police Department alleging deliberate blocking of evidence testing led to the murders of 7 people.
Does bad judgment or rude behavior by any citizen justify the use of force of an electric shock by the police in America?
Here we go again, another officer with poor or nonexistent communication skills using the Taser in a manner unacceptable in a free society. This new report comes from not New York City where you expect rude behavior to be the norm, but from the wild west of Glenrock, Wyoming.
Wasn’t it the Bush Administration that coined the phrase, “Freedom isn’t free.”? I’m left to wonder, free of what; free of excessive force from our own police force? Just going through the airport in America I’m made to feel like a criminal in ways you won’t feel going through airports in Europe. In Russia you get robbed over luggage charges but you expect it. In America we now get not just robbed by Wall Street, but there is a growing trend of being mugged by our own police forces.

The key piece of evidence used to crack the Baseline Serial Killer case sat in an evidence locker for 9 months while 7 more people lost their lives. Sources inside the Phoenix Police Dept. say that's just the crime lab's latest mistake.
Family members said this week that Atlantic high school officials forced five teenage girls to remove their clothes during an investigation into a theft.

The Milwaukee police dept. was receiving assistance from Britain's National Policing Improvement Agency with experience in serial murder investigations and cases that relied heavily on DNA evidence.

Cops are here to keep us safe by killing 10-year-old kids on bicycles while tearing down the road at at 30 mph over the posted speed limit with no lights and no sirens on.
If you or I slammed into a 10 year old on a bicycle while doing 70mph in a 40mph zone on a major thoroughfare like Belt Line, we’d be crucified in the press and locked away for years on a vehicular homicide charge. But since Senior Corporal Michael Vaughn is a cop, even though he admittedly violated established policies for safe driving and killed a 10-year-old child through his recklessness, he gets Internally Investigated and given a one day vacation from his job.
