Non-Terrorist Embarrassment in Boston. The story is almost too funny to write about seriously.

Non-Terrorist Embarrassment in Boston

To advertise the Cartoon Network show "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," the network put up 38 blinking signs (kind of like Lite Brites) around the Boston area. The Boston police decided -- with absolutely no supporting evidence -- that these were bombs and shut down parts of the city. Now the police look stupid, but they're trying really not hard not to act humiliated: Governor Deval Patrick told the Associated Press: "It's a hoax -- and it's not funny. " Unfortunately, it is funny. But it's much easier to blame others than to admit that you were wrong: "It is outrageous, in a post 9/11 world, that a company would use this type of marketing scheme," Mayor Thomas Menino said.

Prisons Without Walls: We’re All Inmates in the American Police State

Whitehead June 15, 2015 “It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison and yet not free—to be under no physical constraint and yet be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation wants him to think, feel and act. . . . To him the walls of his prison are invisible and he believes himself to be free.” —Aldous Huxley, A Brave New World Revisited “Free worlders” is prison slang for those who are not incarcerated behind prison walls. “As I got closer to retiring from the Federal Bureau of Prisons,” writes former prison employee Marlon Brock, “it began to dawn on me that the security practices we used in the prison system were being implemented outside those walls.”

Free Speech Takes Huge Hit as Oakland Bans Protests at Night, Implements Anti-Protest Curfew

This curfew does not apply to everyone in the city, only those who are involved in organized protests. Mayor Libby Schaaf put the order into effect in the midst of this week’s #SayHerName protest where women and children peacefully protested victims of police brutality. During the demonstration, protesters were prevented from marching to the police station and were threatened with arrest if they stepped off of the sidewalk. Police informed protesters through a giant sound system that their march was not permitted, and that they could be arrested under Vehicle Code Section 2800, which makes it illegal to disobey anything a police officer says. Cat Brooks, one of the organizers of the protest says that their right to freely and peacefully assemble was infringed upon.

Peru Minister Says Police Should Use Lethal Force on Protestors

Peruvian Interior Minister Jose Luis Perez Guadalupe said Tuesday that police “can and should” use lethal force in the face of protests like those unfolding in the country against the Tia Maria mine project. “When (police) go to these types of demonstrations, (police) who are on the front line carry non-lethal weapons, but in recognition of their duties and in the name of the protection of the citizenry, police of course can and should use their guns, this is not unusual,” said Perez. Gen. Jorge Flores Goicochea, head of the Peruvian National Police, reiterated the comments made the interior minister, stating that there is a second line of police who are authorized to carry lethal weapons, which can be used “when there is an imminent risk to their lives.”

Off Duty Officer Tries to Flex his Muscle on Female Law Student … Doesn’t Work Out So Much For H. Sandusky Police over stepping their bounds. This Traffic Stop Video Epitomizes Everything that is Wrong With Police Today. Sandusky, OH — A mother and father were on their way home with their 2 week old baby when they were stopped by Sandusky police officers.

Andre Stockett, the father and the passenger in the vehicle, and the man who took the video, has a good understanding of his rights when dealing with police. Despite the police pulling over the vehicle, for an alleged “traffic violation,” they do nothing to the driver. Her license is run and it comes back valid so they have nothing on them, yet like bullies on the playground they begin ganging up on Stockett.

Stockett has committed no crime and has not been suspected of committing a crime, so he lawfully refuses to identify himself. This assertion of his rights does not go over well with the bullies on the playground, so Officer Denny throws a temper tantrum. The K-9 unit is brought in.

I Cant Breathe. Samuel L. Jackson Challenges Celebrities to Sing Out Against Police Brutality. Miami Cops Cover Up Death of Graffiti Artist During Art Basel. Miami artist Delbert Rodriguez was 21 years old. I use the word “was” because Delbert – a Miami based artist known as ‘Demz’ – was chased down and run over by a Miami police officer with a history of violence last week for painting the side of a building during an international art festival where almost everybody was painting on the side of buildings. Delbert died Tuesday after fighting for his life in a Miami hospital. He was in critical condition with a severe brain injury for days. The official police statement claimed it was an accident, “due to darkness, black clothing, and his low position near the pavement, the officers were unable to see him as they turned the corner.” Police also said parked cars blocked the cop’s visibility as he cruised the street at 15 mph.

And they claimed there was no audio or video evidence in the case. There’s only one problem with the police statement – the evidence has told a completely different story.

The report presents law enforcement deaths in 2013. The report found that across the entire country, only 76 LEOs were killed in “line-of-duty” incidents. 27 died as a result of “felonious” acts and 49 officers died in accidents–namely, automobile (ironically, of the 23 killed in car accidents, 14 were not wearing seat belts–a violation for which cops routinely ticket drivers).
