Racial profiling rampant in police forces - Black NYPD cop

Just as it seems the question of police brutality largely involves white cops attacking unarmed racial minorities, it emerges that African-American police officers face a whole range of injustices from within the force.

An overwhelming majority of injustices perpetrated by one police officer against another involved black cops being mistaken for criminals by their white colleagues. But the statistic only emerged in a task force report in 2010, when the first comprehensive study of the problem was carried out, Reuters reports.

The fresh disclosure to the news agency of a slew of accusations and complaints of racial profiling filed by black officers comes at a difficult time for America, which is already preoccupied with allegations of police brutality - largely white-on-black.

The current tension in race relations in American society has even escalated to a black gunman murdering NYPD cops in retaliation amid nationwide protests over the question of police using disproportionate violence against unarmed black men.


Comment: The attitude displayed by white cops towards minorities is a reflection of US society as a whole. We've been induced to be more discreet about our racial prejudices, but it's still as deeply rooted as ever. By keeping different segments of society at odds with each other, the elites have an easy time of keeping control. They understand clearly, if the common people unite against their real enemy, the psychopaths, the game is up.

Man burns down woman's home after she rebuffed his advances on Facebook

Suspected arsonist James Graham
A man indicted on arson and burglary charges allegedly set fire to a woman's home after she rejected his advances on Facebook.

Frankfort police say the "disturbing" reason that James Graham, 37, broke into a 22-year-old single mother's Franklin County home and set it on fire on Nov. 28 is because she "rebuffed" several uncomfortable comments he posted to her Facebook wall, WLEX-TV reports.

Investigators say Graham set Joanie Yount's Hillview Drive home on fire in November, although she and her 3-year-old son were not home at the time.

"You can actually see from my window standing up on the couch, you could actually see inside there and you couldn't see no flames, all you could see was smoke," Samantha Beagle, Joanie's neighbor and sister, told WLEX. Beagle said there was no relationship between her sister and Graham and that Yount is a busy single mother who "just wants people to leave her alone."

Yount says she and Graham were only acquaintances but he was demanding something more and pursuing her through social media.

Comment: This incident should be a reminder to everyone to be careful who to allow into their life, especially via social media.

Mom stabs son to death during sleep to "save him from the pain that was coming"

A Kansas mother has been charged with the chilling death of her 10-year-old son, who she allegedly stabbed to death while he was sleeping because she thought he would be better off in heaven.

In a Sunday night 911 call to Wellington police, 33-year-old Lindsey Nicole Blansett explained to dispatchers that she had just killed her son.

"Hi, this is Nicole Blansett. I just stabbed my son," she told 911 the operator, adding that she had stabbed him "in the chest, several times."

"God what did I (expletive) do?" Blansett said. "I'm never going to get out of jail, never... I'm going to have to live with that. Oh God, why, why? Because I thought I was saving him from the pain that was coming."

According to a criminal complaint filed by Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer, Blansett "decided his life would be full of suffering and pain and that it would be better for him to go to heaven tonight."

"She took a knife and rock into his bedroom, struck him with the rock and stabbed him with the knife multiple times until he was dead," the complaint noted.

When officers arrived at the residence, Blansett's 10-year-old son, Caleb, was already dead. A 9-year-old girl who was in the home was not harmed.

ISIS shoots down U.S.-led coalition warplane over Syria, capture Jordanian pilot

A Syrian opposition group says the ISIL Takfiri militants have shot down a US-led coalition warplane over northern Syria.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Wednesday that ISIL militants also "took a [non-Syrian] Arab pilot prisoner after shooting his plane down with an anti-aircraft missile near Raqqa city."

The ISIL also released photographs purportedly showing a captured Jordanian pilot on its websites.

Jordanian officials have not made any comment on the incident.


Comment: Jordan has just confirmed that one of their pilots was captured by ISIS.
Later on Wednesday, the Jordanian military confirmed one of its pilots had been captured during coalition airstrikes on IS-held territory. The Jordanian army told IS it is responsible for the pilot's wellbeing.

Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain are among a number of countries that have joined the so-called US-led alliance carrying out airstrikes against ISIL in Syria and Iraq. This comes as most of these countries have been supporting Al-Qaeda-linked militant groups fighting the Syrian government.

If confirmed, this would be the first coalition warplane shot down since the airstrikes started in September.

Comment: Will the incident be used to further the U.S. invasion of Syria?

US: A short history of police brutality, cops let off the hook by the psychopathic justice system

Image
The preordained failure of biased local prosecutors to obtain indictments against Darren Wilson and Daniel Pantaleo should not surprise us. But the outrage that followed has brought widespread attention to the nationwide problem of systemic and racist police violence and highlighted the movement that has come together to battle against it.

The Ferguson grand jury's decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of African-American teenager Michael Brown, followed by an equally unfair result in New York City in the Eric Garner case, were equally heartless. But it is important to place these cases in context with the history of police violence investigations and prosecutions in high profile cases - and the systemic and racist police brutality that continues to plague the nation. In doing so, there are lessons for the movement for justice in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases as well as for those who are engaged in the broader struggle against law enforcement violence.

What follows, then, is a brief history of similar high profile cases where public outrage compelled the justice system to confront acts of racially motivated police violence - with, to say the least, less than satisfactory results.

Chicago

Over the past 45 years, Chicago has been a prime example of official indifference and cover-up when it comes to prosecuting the police for wanton brutality and torture.

On December 4, 1969, Black Panther leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark were slain in a police raid that implicated the Cook County State's Attorney and the FBI's Cointelpro program. A public outcry led to a Federal Civil Rights investigation. Despite finding that the raiding police fired more than 90 shots to one by the Panthers, the Grand Jury in 1970 did not indict, but rather issued a report that equally blamed the police perpetrators and the Panther victims.

Comment: The road to tyranny is paved by those who allowed it to happen.
"The lesson is this: once a free people allows the government inroads into their freedoms or uses those same freedoms as bargaining chips for security, it quickly becomes a slippery slope to outright tyranny. Nor does it seem to matter whether it's a Democrat or a Republican at the helm anymore, because the bureaucratic mindset on both sides of the aisle now seems to embody the same philosophy of authoritarian government, whose priorities are to remain in control and in power.

Modern government in general - ranging from the militarized police in SWAT team gear crashing through our doors to the rash of innocent citizens being gunned down by police to the invasive spying on everything we do - is acting illogically, even psychopathically. (The characteristics of a psychopath include a "lack of remorse and empathy, a sense of grandiosity, superficial charm, conning and manipulative behavior, and refusal to take responsibility for one's actions, among others." )

When our own government no longer sees us as human beings with dignity and worth but as things to be manipulated, maneuvered, mined for data, manhandled by police, conned into believing it has our best interests at heart, mistreated, and then jails us if we dare step out of line, punishes us unjustly without remorse, and refuses to own up to its failings, we are no longer operating under a constitutional republic. Instead, what we are experiencing is a pathocracy: tyranny at the hands of a psychopathic government, which "operates against the interests of its own people except for favoring certain groups."

So where does that leave us?"

6-year old Canadian girl raped, beaten into coma, left to die in the snow

A man in Canada has been placed under arrest for allegedly beating a 6-year-old girl, and then leaving her naked to die in the snow.

According to Global News, emergency services responded on Saturday at 4 p.m. to the Paul Band First Nation, a group of Aboriginal peoples in Alberta.

A spokesperson for the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service (STARS) said that first responders found a 6-year-old girl suffering from "traumatic injuries related to blunt trauma." She was taken to a hospital in Edmonton, where she was described in critical condition on Sunday.

Family members told Global News that the girl returned home from skating with friends, and then left the home with a relative. Family and friends assumed at the time that the girl had gone back to the skating rink.

But the 6 year old was later found lying in the snow, naked and unconscious. The family said that she was left for dead in the woods.

"The way he beat her, put her in a coma, and raped her. That shouldn't happen to little children," one family member explained to Global News. "This person that did that has got to be some kind of an animal, to not even think that he's harming another human being."

The girl was beaten so badly that she could not be recognized, a family member recalled.

"It's so heartbreaking," another relative lamented. "I can't imagine... I mean, she's just a little girl. And he's a full grown man."

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) arrested a man, and an investigation was ongoing. The RCMP said that it was not releasing the suspect's name to protect the identity of the victim.

Comment: Who does that? A sadistic psychopathic pedophile. Protect your children by educating yourselves on pedophiles, how they think and where these knuckle-dragging degenerates find their victims.

Dallas cop forces mother to perform 'sex acts' while holding service weapon; threatens daughter

A Dallas police officer has been charged with allegedly forcing a woman to perform multiple sex acts while he was on duty.

According to the Dallas Morning News, police arrested Officer David Kattner on Sunday at around 1:20 a.m.

An arrest warrant obtained by the paper said that Kattner had sexually assaulted the woman three times. The woman said that Kattner had shown her warrants for her arrest, and told her that he knew where her daughter lived.

The warrant stated that Kattner was wearing his Dallas Police Department uniform, and driving a marked patrol car when the assault occurred. It also stated that the officer kept his hand on his service weapon while he forced the victim to perform the sex act on him.

The woman felt that she had to comply because Kattner had threatened her safety and the safety of her daughter, the warrant said.

Officials with the Dallas Police Department said that Kattner was accused of making prostitutes perform sex acts. It was not immediately clear, however, that the victim was a prostitute.


Comment: She is a human being who was assaulted and raped by a police officer. Does is matter who he sexually assaulted? Would that make a difference if she was a prostitute?


Kattner was placed on administrative leave and booked into the Dallas County Jail. His bond was set at $50,000.

Teenaged boy saves his 4 year old sister from kidnapper

Image
A boy, 13, is being credited with saving his 4-year-old sister from being kidnapped, authorities say.

Lancaster sheriff's deputies say the boy took swift action when a man entered their fenced yard in Lancaster on Saturday and grabbed hold of his sister. The man made it about 10 feet before dropping the girl, deputies said, thanks to her brother.

"He definitely acted on his own instincts," said Deputy Miguel Ruiz, calling the boy's actions courageous and heroic.

The suspect was identified as Earl Williams, 61, of Los Angeles. Williams, who had been seen pacing around the children's home in the 300 block of West Kildare Street, entered their yard about 11:55 a.m., authorities said. He asked the girl's name, then reached down and grabbed her, said Lt. Slade Carrizosa of the Los Angeles County sheriff's station in Lancaster.

Comment: It's a good idea to talk to your children so that they understand that there are people who cannot be trusted, even in their own neighborhoods. See: A guide to protecting your children against predators and SOTT Talk Radio: Predators Among Us - Interview With Dr. Anna Salter

Vulnerable UK pensioners choose between eating or using the toilet due to outsourced care

Image

Hundreds of thousands of vulnerable British pensioners receive home state care that is so cursory and inadequate they are forced to choose between eating and being assisted to the bathroom, a Freedom of Information (FoI) request reveals.

An overwhelming 75 percent of local authorities in England offer pensioners visits that last a mere 15 minutes, the FoI request indicates. The number of councils booking care workers for these "flying care" visits has shot up 5 percent in the past year.

Britain's health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, said the sobering statistics revealed a situation that was simply "unacceptable." Alluding to dangers associated with cost cutting in an era of outsourcing, Hunt said there are "too many examples of councils buying rushed care visits."

Councils warn crippling funding cuts are to blame for the situation, and have jeopardized their capacity to maintain basic services. They say they need an extra £400 million if they are to provide adequate services to those who rely on them.

Outsourced and unaccountable

In a climate of rampant privatization, UK public services are increasingly outsourced. In the case of state care, 90 percent of such services for elderly and disabled Britons are now offered by private companies or charities.

Some 110 councils across Britain are currently paying for care workers to conduct these 15-minute visits.

Severely criticized, the whistle-stop visits generally occur daily or every two days. Critics warn the rushed timespan is simply too short to allow pensioners and the disabled the time needed for adequate care.

Frustrated care workers say they don't have sufficient time to dress, feed and wash their clients and make sure they have taken any medication they depend on.

Comment: Our society is become increasingly more neglectful towards those that need support the most. The elites calling the shots, by their actions, have made the the weak and most vulnerable people disposable.

Bizarre execution of 2 NYPD cops a godsend to US government reeling from nationwide protests against police brutality

NYPD killed

Two police officers sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn were shot at point-blank range and killed on Saturday afternoon by a man who, officials said, had traveled to the city from Baltimore vowing to kill officers. The suspect then committed suicide with the same gun, the authorities said.

The officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were in the car near Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant in the shadow of a tall housing project when the gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, walked up to the passenger-side window and assumed a firing stance, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said. Mr. Brinsley shot several rounds into the heads and upper bodies of the officers, who never drew their weapons, the authorities said.

Mr. Brinsley, 28, then fled down the street and onto the platform of a nearby subway station, where he killed himself as officers closed in. The police recovered a silver semiautomatic handgun, Mr. Bratton said.

Mr. Brinsley, who had a long rap sheet of crimes that included robbery and carrying a concealed gun, is believed to have shot his former girlfriend near Baltimore before traveling to Brooklyn, the authorities said. He made statements on social media suggesting that he planned to kill police officers and was angered about the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases.


Comment: What are the odds, eh? Sure, people are angry, but ordinary people don't react to injustice in this way. Was this guy Greenbaumed or something? By his callous act, he sure has handed - wittingly or otherwise - a gift to the brutal police state.


Authorities in Baltimore sent a warning that Mr. Brinsley had made these threats, but it was received in New York at essentially the same time as the killings, officials said.

The shootings, the chase, the suicide of Mr. Brinsley and the desperate but failed bid to save the lives of the officers - their uniforms soaked in blood - turned a busy commercial intersection on the Saturday before Christmas into a scene of pandemonium.

Comment: When officers are killed we can expect their service to be lauded and their killers to be deemed the worst sort of criminal. When #CopsKill, their victims are blamed, smeared and forgotten, only to be replaced by the next person killed under questionable circumstances. The message is clear: normal people's lives do not matter.
