Can we all talk about how thin-skinned the police are in this country?

Do cops think that people WANT to be shot by them?

StL Police Officers Association condemns Rams display

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Police Officers Association has released a statement condemning the St. Louis Rams football players who entered the field displaying the "hands up don't shoot" pose.

St. Louis, Missouri (November 30, 2014) – The St. Louis Police Officers Association is profoundly disappointed with the members of the St. Louis Rams football team who chose to ignore the mountains of evidence released from the St. Louis County Grand Jury this week and engage in a display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory.

Five members of the Rams entered the field today exhibiting the "hands-up-don't-shoot" pose that has been adopted by protestors who accused Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson of murdering Michael Brown. The gesture has become synonymous with assertions that Michael Brown was innocent of any wrongdoing and attempting to surrender peacefully when Wilson, according to some now-discredited witnesses, gunned him down in cold blood.

SLPOA Business Manager Jeff Roorda said, "now that the evidence is in and Officer Wilson's account has been verified by physical and ballistic evidence as well as eye-witness testimony, which led the grand jury to conclude that no probable cause existed that Wilson engaged in any wrongdoing, it is unthinkable that hometown athletes would so publicly perpetuate a narrative that has been disproven over-and-over again."



Did Police Set Autos On Fire During Ferguson Protests?

By Che Lank
November 30th, 2014

This video captures images worthy of investigation. The video seems to show military-clad police setting fire to a car outside of auto parts store. The store and the one next to it burned down. In other videos where fires were started or stores had windows broken you can hear protesters saying ‘leave that store alone’ or ‘don’t start a fire’. We know organizers in Ferguson trained 600 people in nonviolent resistance tactics. Burning cars and looting building is not part of that training, indeed typically people are taught that the idea is to grow the movement into a larger movement and that looting and rioting is counterproductive. We are not saying that all the fires were started by police, but this one raises questions that deserve investigation — were fires started by police?

This is what Che Lank says: “Para-military Police CAUGHT ON FILM methodically setting fire to a vehicle in front of Advance Auto Parts in St. Louis MO. This happens on W Florissant Ave., the same street where nearly every fire occurred. Despite having this building locked down, Advance Auto Parts burnt down to the ground!

Here is smoking gun irrefutable proof that police were methodically and deliberately setting the fires after the announcement of the Grand Jury Decision not to indict Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown.


His right cheek...

Hmmm, what do we have here?

Really? Just fuck the police...

Fuck them all to hell.

"He was no angel."

No need to gun these kids down 1 1/2 seconds after driving up on them...

Nope, no need at all. They've got REAL guns, see?

(No, I've NOT advocating that the police gun these kids down, if that's what you're thinking. If you did, don't be ridiculous.)

(UK) Policemen 'chased autistic man Faruk Ali for fun'

Bedfordshire police officers Christopher Thomas and Christopher Pitts both deny the charges against them

Bedfordshire PCs Christopher Thomas and Christopher Pitts are accused of pursuing Faruk Ali, 33, in a police car before PC Thomas attacked him.

Aylesbury Crown Court was played a video from the in-car camera of the officers laughing before PC Thomas chased Mr Ali on foot, in Luton.

PC Thomas, 33, of Welwyn Garden City, denies racially aggravated assault.

'Their own amusement'
He and PC Pitts, 39, from Bedford, both deny perverting the course of justice and two counts of misconduct in a public office.

The prosecution said the officers followed Mr Ali for "fun" and "their own amusement" rather than any "legitimate policing reason".

Prosecutor David Richards said: "The accused are serving police officers.

Faruk Ali was helping to put out bins when he was assaulted by PC Christopher Thomas, the jury heard
"They chased a vulnerable man for no proper reason whatsoever."

He said Mr Ali, who has the mental age of a three or four-year-old child, got up early each Thursday to help put out the bins in his street.

Steely Dan - "Black Friday"

So, what are you thankful for?

Me, I am for my family and friends and even my neighbors and thankful that I'm still breathing for another year.

I'm thankful that I express myself through words and music and that I can share my expressessions.

I'm thankful for what little possessions I have, because I know that they can be lost at any time.

I'm thankful that I can be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Officer fires at unarmed suspect during traffic stop

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Days after an unarmed man dodged a bullet during a traffic stop, it's still not entirely clear what led a Jacksonville Sheriff's Officer to open fire.

The man's supporters took to social media on Wednesday to share his side of the story, saying the man had been holding his daughter's asthma inhaler when the officer fired Monday night.

Officer J.C. Garcia hasn't been placed on leave in the wake of the shooting, a JSO spokesperson said Tuesday.

The officer drew and fired his weapon under the mistaken belief that the driver was holding a gun. In fact, Brian Dennison, 29, was unarmed, and had his 6-year-old daughter in the car with him.


Dennison was arrested on misdemeanor charges of knowingly driving with a suspended license and driving with a suspended license. He is currently in the Duval County Jail.
