National Police Misconduct NewsFeed Daily Recap 09-16-11
September 17th, 2011

Here are the 21 reports of police misconduct tracked in our National Police Misconduct News Feed for this Friday, September 16, 2011:

An Illinois Circuit Court judge ruled that using that state’s wiretap law to arrest people for recording cops or other public officials in the course of their work is unconstitutional in a case where a man was facing a ridiculous 75 years in prison for doing just that. While the ruling only directly affects that case, it could serve as leverage in the upcoming court battle filed by the ACLU and is definitely another win for transparency and accountability in that very troubled state.

Fullerton CA police suspend one of the officers who is alleged to have a primary role in the beating death of Kelly Thomas after he was implicated in a third excessive force incident where a man is filing suit alleging the officer bounced his head off a wall during a false public intoxication arrest. Oddly, the department refused to say why he was suspended or what the results of the investigation that supposedly occurred as a result of that complaint ended up being.

Alameda Co CA deputies are being sued alleging they used excessive force when they tackled and tasered a mentally disabled 18-year-old girl who has the mental capacity of a 4-year-old. [0] (link tracking not allowed)/nWrZdV

Anderson CA cop who originally faced a possible life sentence for the array of charges against him for raping a woman in his custody will now only face a possible 1 year maximum sentence in a plea deal that was prompted by a legal loophole that says it can’t be an in-custody rape if the victim isn’t first booked into jail.

Brazos Co TX deputy constable already charged with kidnapping a woman while on duty is now charged with the attempted sexual assault of another woman who came forward after the story broke. [0] (link tracking not allowed)/rrKbvU

No "rats" last long in the "brotherhood", kiddo.

You'd have to be quite sheltered to think such things are plausible.

How does it feel to look into the future of America?

With the further militarization of Law enforcement; the taxpaying citizens have become the enemy!

God help us.

Here's why it's happening.

The police are being trained to think of themselves as the same as the military. The reason why this is bad, is because police are there to not only solve crimes, but also to serve the public, in natural disasters and such.

The military on the other hand, are trained to view an opposing force as simply an enemy, and therefore to neutralise or kill the target, no questions asked.

So police with military training (which they're getting) view the civilian population as the enemy. They're not there to serve or assist the civilian population in any way. Civilians are now the enemy, and in their minds, are to be attacked in the same manner as foreign combatants.

Anyone else notice how we used to have a number of cops on ATS defending the actions of their brothers in blue, but they have all but disappeared recently? Guess they're out of excuses for the disgusting abuse running rampant through out their profession.
