Man faces prison after allegedly trying to deposit 10,000 bottles in Michigan

By Ryan Felton The Guardian

In a memorable episode of Seinfeld, two characters hatch a plot: instead of returning bottles in New York for a 5-cent refund, round up a load of containers and run them to Michigan, where the return is double, at 10 cents each.
 
In reality, the ploy – returning bottles purchased outside of Michigan to capitalize on the refund – is illegal under the state’s bottle deposit law. And a Michigan resident is finding out just how steep the penalties could be.
 
Brian Everidge, who is accused of attempting to “return” more than 10,000 bottles from other states, faces up to five years in prison for one felony count of beverage return of non-refundable bottles.
 
 
The incident dates to late April, when a Michigan state trooper pulled over Everidge – who was driving a rented Budget box truck in Tyrone Township, Michigan, about 40 miles north-west of Detroit – for speeding.
 
The officer, Clifford Lyden, testified at a court hearing on Thursday that Everidge’s truck was filled with plastic bags holding thousands of aluminum cans.
 
“I don’t think you could have put another five or 10 cans in here,” Lyden said. “It was packed.”
 
Everidge indicated the cans were from Kentucky, the officer said, “and his intent was to return them; he just didn’t say where he was going to return them”.
 
Livingston County district judge Suzanne Geddis found on Thursday that there was probable cause that Everidge violated state law, court records show, and Everidge will go to trial.
 
William J Vailliencourt, the prosecutor for Livingston County, declined to comment, citing the pending trial. But he said his office “has never had a case like this”.
 
Everidge couldn’t be reached, and his attorney, Marcus Wilcox, declined to comment.
 
In court, Everidge’s attorney Marcus Wilcox argued the state improperly charged Everidge, according to the Livingston Daily Press & Argus. He said his client’s situation didn’t meet the legal threshold for “attempting” to deliver the bottles for the deposit refund.
‘Kramer was right ... The cost-benefit analysis just doesn’t work.'

“They caught him too early,” Wilcox said on Thursday. “He attempted to attempt to return the bottles.”
 
Legal experts said Wilcox’s argument was tantamount to a “law school exam question”.
 
“This is the kind of stuff you torture students with,” said Peter Henning, a Wayne State University law professor and former federal prosecutor.
 
The case will turn on whether Everidge’s conduct went far enough to say he “attempted the crime, rather than was he just thinking about it”, Henning said. “His lawyer is making this is a purely legal argument: ‘Yes, he had the bottles from out of state ... but he hadn’t gotten far enough yet. And therefore he has not committed a crime.”
 
“You can’t be punished for your thoughts ... the difference is between mere preparation and perpetration,” he said.
 
Wilcox’s argument, Henning said, wasn’t an easy sell. “If he was three miles over the Toledo border, maybe that works – but he’s 75 miles into Michigan. This is getting much closer to perpetration of the offense.”
 
Michigan’s bottle-return policy is revered among advocates, as it has the highest bottle deposit in the US, according to statistics from the Container Recycling Institute. (Seinfeld elevated it to public lore in a two-part episode called The Bottle Deposit). The institute’s website notes that Maine and Vermont’s laws provide a 15-cent deposit for liquor and wine bottles, and 5 cents for other beverages. California has a 10-cent deposit for beverages larger than 24oz.
 
Beyond the higher return, Michigan’s 10-cent deposit also made a significant dent in increasing bottle recycling in the state. Michigan has the highest redemption rate for bottles in the US, according to a 2013 state report. The deposit cost is tacked on to the price when an individual purchases a beverage. Retailers each year receive 25% of unclaimed deposits, while Michigan transfers the remainder to a trust fund held by the state’s environmental agency, which uses the money for various waste production and pollution efforts. In 2010, the unclaimed deposits totaled $17.3m, the state report said.
 
But the deposit rate has for years attracted scammers, particularly in communities along the state’s borders. State lawmakers have proposed legislation in recent years to crack down on smugglers, including additional criminal penalties.
 
The felony count prosecutors charged Everidge with carries the highest penalties under state law, at a maximum five years’ imprisonment and up to a $5,000 fine.
 
Henning said it was unlikely Everidge, if convicted, would receive a prison sentence. “This is not a serious offense, and putting him in jail costs the county money,” he said.
 
The state report, which analyzed proposed legislative changes to Michigan’s bottle bill, said prison incarceration in a state facility was about $35,500 per prisoner annually.
 
Henning said the bottle bill penalties for large volumes in Michigan were more commonly used against commercial vendors, not individuals.
 
“There have probably been a few,” he said. “I don’t think it’s commonly prosecuted.
 
“I know the statute says you could be prosecuted for more than 25 [bottles], but less than 100,” he added. “Unless you’re walking in with a license plate around your neck from Arizona, no dealer’s going to ask. Kroger’s not going to ask where my cans and bottles are from; they couldn’t care less.”
 
Though the case was an anomaly, he said, “this is why we have laws that he clearly intended to violate”.
 
Henning, noting how the effort would have netted Everidge roughly $1,000, alluded to the Seinfeld episode and concerns raised by one of the show’s characters about the cost of the ploy. For Kramer, it was gas money. For Everidge, it’s potentially far greater.
 
Either way, “Kramer was right,” he said. “The cost-benefit analysis just doesn’t work.”

Calif Police Officer Arrested For Domestic Violence

By KYET

GUADALUPE, Calif. - Guadalupe Police Officer Ruben Ramirez was arrested Sunday night at his home in Santa Maria by Santa Maria Police on a charge of domestic violence with a woman believed to be his wife.

"He was arrested and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail and he posted bail for his release", says Guadalupe Police Chief Gary Hoving, "since that time he has been relieved of duty, he has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an Internal Affairs investigation."

Chief Hoving commends the Santa Maria Police Department for its handling of the arrest of Officer Ramirez noting that he never received any special treatment.

"At this point we will wait to find out what the outcome of the criminal case is and we'll also look at policy violations in the interim", Hoving says, "we'll see if there are any restraining orders that surface in the next few days."

Hoving says law enforcement officers are being pushed to the limit more now than at any time in his 40 year career.

"I think there has always been stress affiliated with law enforcement and I would not want to use stress as a crutch or an alibi for domestic violence because there is no excuse for domestic violence", Chief Hoving says, "whether there is more stress today than when I started 40 years ago? I would have to say yes, definitely, at this moment we're a little shy on national support for law enforcement and it shows, it shows daily."

Officer Ruben Ramirez has served more than five years with the Guadalupe Police Department.

A Guadalupe police officer was arrested just after 11 p.m. on Sunday for alleged domestic violence against his wife.

The Santa Maria Police Department made the arrest. The suspect was identified as Ruben Ramirez, a veteran officer with the Guadalupe Police Department.

Guadalupe Police Chief Gary Hoving confirmed that Ramirez is facing a felony charge related to domestic violence. A phone tip to our newsroom claims the victim suffered injuries. The extent of those injuries is unknown at this time.

Chief Hoving said Ramirez did not receive special treatment, and that officers that arrested him treated Ramirez like everybody else who is alleged to have committed domestic violence.

Ramirez was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail.

No other details were immediately known but check back for updated information as it comes into our newsroom.

Officer of the Year Arrested for Domestic Violence

Officer Bryn Lindenmuth

YORK, Pa. (AP) – A central Pennsylvania county’s “Police Officer of the Year” has been charged with assaulting his wife.

The York Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2agcdiv ) reports 34-year-old Bryn Lindenmuth was charged with simple assault, false imprisonment and harassment for allegedly ripping off some of his wife’s clothes, scratching her and refusing to let her leave her home after she returned from a cookout Saturday night. West Manchester Township police say she was able to run to a neighbor’s and call 911.

Lindenmuth has been placed on paid leave by the Southwestern Regional Police, who patrol several of York’s suburbs. His defense attorney didn’t immediately return a call for comment Wednesday.

Lindenmuth was named York County’s officer of the year in 2015 for making 16 DUI arrests, filing 45 criminal charges and conducting 350 traffic stops.

After Bryn Lindenmuth was arrested, Kalina Lindenmuth said she was "sick and tired" of being physically abused and pushed around by her husband, saying this type of violence had happened many times before, documents state.

She said she was afraid to call authorities because her husband is a police officer, according to charging documents.

The incident:  Kalina Lindenmuth returned home from a cookout about 10:45 p.m. Saturday, and was parked near her home. Bryn Lindenmuth drove by in his Jeep, got out, unlocked his wife's car with spare keys and took her keys out of her car, according to documents.

Bryn Lindenmuth then yelled at Kalina Lindenmuth before heading off in his Jeep, documents state. Kalina Lindenmuth walked back to her home, where police say she found her husband throwing beer bottles on the front lawn.

When she went into the house, her husband continued to yell at her, taking her phone and looking through it, police said. Bryn Lindenmuth then allegedly ripped her tank top, ripped off her bra, scratched her and allegedly tore apart her sandals, documents state. He also allegedly ripped up photos of them together, police said.

Kalina Lindenmuth then sat on a recliner while Bryn Lindenmuth used her phone to call her sister, telling the sister to mind her own business and calling both women "pieces of sh—t," according to police.

Police say Bryn Lindenmuth pushed over the recliner with his wife still in it and that when she tried to walk away, he blocked her and pushed her, then tried to throw her through the rear sliding-glass door.

Bryn Lindenmuth allegedly hoisted Kalina Lindenmuth over his shoulder, but she managed to get away and ran to get her phone. Bryn Lindenmuth got the phone first and put it in his pocket, police said, then picked her up again, trying to force her outside.

"Bryn used substantial force using his elbow and jammed it down hard on her shoulder in an attempt to knock her down," documents state.

He then tried to lock Kalina Lindenmuth in the garage, telling her she could sleep there before turning off the lights, documents state. After that, Bryn Lindenmuth allegedly came into the garage, telling his wife they were leaving, and he tried to force her into the passenger seat of a vehicle.

Kalina Lindenmuth tried to get back into the home to get her phone and wallet, but "Bryn kept blocking her path and grabbed her arms and started to force her backward to possibly fall down the steps," documents state.

Kalina Lindenmuth was able to grab her flip-flops and run to a neighbor's home, where she used their phone to call 911, police said. The entirety of the incident lasted from about 11 p.m. until 3 a.m., according to police.

While speaking with police, Kalina Lindenmuth said she was scared of what her husband might do after she called police, adding that he has many weapons in the house, documents state. The couple's two children were not present during the incident, police said.

The responding officer conferred with the York County District Attorney's Office before filing the charges, police said, and Kalina Lindenmuth was taken to a local district judge's office to obtain an emergency protection-from-abuse order.

Investigation: Southwestern Regional Police Chief Greg Bean confirmed Tuesday that Bryn Lindenmuth was placed on paid leave immediately after the alleged incident. Bean said Lindenmuth will remain on paid leave until an internal investigation is complete.

An investigator within the department will be assigned to speak with those involved to determine if there has been any violation of orders. That will then be presented to the police board, which will make a decision about any disciplinary action, he said.

“We don't want any stone unturned, as far as the facts of the situation, and we present the information as we know it, and a determination is made at that point,” Bean said.

The department will be working closely with the York County District Attorney's Office and West Manchester Township Police during the investigation, he said.

Accolades: Bryn Lindenmuth was named 2015 York County Officer of the Year in May by the York County Police Heritage Museum.

He has been with the department for 11 years, according to a news release announcing the award. During that time he has received 21 awards or commendations. In 2015, he made 16 DUI arrests, filed 45 criminal charges and conducted 350 traffic enforcement stops, the release states.

“From the perspective of a police officer, he’s always excelled at whatever he does,” Bean said.

Bryn Lindenmuth also is a drug recognition expert and a member of the York County Drug Task Force as a liaison for the department, according to the release.

Lindenmuth could not be reached for comment Wednesday and remains free on $25,000 unsecured bail, meaning he didn't have to post any money but could lose that amount if he fails to attend court proceedings.

Defense attorney Chris Ferro did not return a message seeking comment on Wednesday afternoon.

How to get Donald Trump Elected

By Christopher R Rice


We finally have an anti-establishment candidate. Donald Trump may not be Ron Paul or have any experience in political office but that's the way it should be. The founding fathers never intended for politician to be a career. The people were to elect representatives from amongst themselves (locally) and send the best among themselves to Washington to fix this or that local problem and then the rep you sent to Washington was to return to their former job, not stay in Washington accumulating power and wealth for themselves.


We also finally have a candidate that wants to secure our borders and bring the troops home. We should've secured our borders after 9/11 but Bush and Cheney took millions of dollars from campaign contributors to keep the borders wide open. Then companies like Tyson Foods flooded Congress and the Senate with tons of cash to give illegals a Z-Visa so they could remain and work legally in the US.


But We the People flooded the Senate switchboard with phone calls against this legislation. So many people called in that we shut the switchboard down. I helped to organize that protest. A big thank you to everyone who participated.


I started a website that I called VoteStrike. And I began organizing to keep the two open borders Senators running for the White House out. We had a pretty good following. No one had heard of Obama and he had signed the Z-Visa legislation along with his opponent John McCain.

I republished from Open Secrets.org that Obamas top campaign contributors were not small donors as he had claimed but were Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street big wigs.

But no one listened. Everyone drank the Kool-Aid, and started believing whatever Obama said, the truth seemed irrelevant to my readers.

When Obama got elected, I admitted defeat. VoteStrike was a huge failure, another crook was in the highest office in the land.


Shortly there after the Tea Party was born. I had talked it up with some friends, about what protest were still taking place. And about a week or so later my friend said I heard about that Tea Party you were talking about on the news last night.


Much to my dismay the Tea Party chose to attack Obama over his birth certificate which I thought was pure folly. But the members of the Tea Party choose to run with it. And they made the news with it. A new term entered our vocabulary, the birthers they were called. They were being compared to the Truthers, from the '9/11 is an inside job', movement.

A lot of time and money went into proving that Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii but as I predicted you were wasting a lot of time and a lot of money. I'd watched the Jesuits do the same thing when they tried to use the RICO law against the first Bush. You see I've been in this fight for a long time now.

For all of the people who still hate Donald Trump, I just have one thing to say, look at the other option. The Democrats crowned their Queen but no one wants Hillary in the White House or Obama would of never been able to beat her eight years ago. She's a dead duck. Nobody is willing to admit this though.


Hate for Donald Trump is still pulsing through half of every Americans blood vessels. To those people who would vote for Hillary as a protest vote against Trump, that must be a hard decision. No matter how politically un-correct Mr. Trump might be, Hillary Clinton is a war criminal, among her other character flaws. But maybe you're okay with that. Hell we even have a BDSM ex Vice President.


If I have any compliant against a Trump presidency it would be his open support for torture. I mean it was bad enough when they turned America into a BDSM Super Freak but at least it was done covertly. At the same time you have to applaud Mr. Trumps honesty. If you're going to be a freak, be a proud freak.

Those of you who know that I've returned to my anarchist roots and have been trying to rid us of any government at all, don't be shocked. These loons are going to vote, I can't change that. Truth and reality are the first casualties in any election. So no matter what I say or publish, someone's getting into the White House that doesn't belong there.

I first saw a Trump presidency as a side effect rising from the ashes of my VoteStrike. Like some medieval Frankenstein. And I thought my gawd man what have I created? But it was the system that created this monster, not I.

Now I'd like to give you a strategy to get Trump into the White House. A little something I learned from Ralph Nader.

Related article: Ralph Nader Was Indispensable To The Republican Party

At the time of this writing Trump is trailing Hillary by over 10 points. And this is before the conventions and the debates.

There is a very simple way to flip this. First get everyone you know to call CNN and FOX and demand a third party candidate be included in the debates. The TV networks will cave from the pressure. The same way we stopped the Z-Visa.

That's it. Mission accomplished. Whatever third party candidate they run will draw more people from Hillary than from Trump. No one really wants Hillary anyways, so give people someone else to vote for as a vote against Trump and Hillary. So they will split her vote.

Are you still with me? Going in Clinton has a ten percent lead. A third party candidate would take more voters from Hillary than from Trump. And then, as if by magic, Trump takes the lead and wins the White House.

If this strategy works out for you guys do me a favor and shoot me, ...some cash. I'm going broke over here. Really, try working with anarchist some time, they don't have two cents to rub together for Christ sakes.

And if you know anyone thinking of voting for Hillary please send them here-

Authorities ready for rumored 'Day of Rage,' but no sign of protest

By Christopher R Rice


After an ominous video posted by the hacker collective Anonymous the Pentagon sent out a warning to all US troops stationed state side. And local police could be seen driving armored vehicles dressed in riot gear, in most major cities. But no protest.

What was billed as a 'Day of Rage' was more like the day of the dead. For a Friday it's awfully quite around here. Probably because of the huge police presence.

Todays leaders seem as lost as the masses. Even though the Occupy movement caught on quickly its strategy was flawed from the start. Forget about the trash and the homeless and all of the other ugliness you've heard and think about the strategy for just a second. Occupying parks solves nothing and with a little tear gas a park can be cleared in less than 5 minutes.

Now we have Anonymous and BLM. Strategy? None. 'Day of Rage', protest another police killing. How? Block a highway? How long can you hold that highway? And what did you accomplish? I'm not here to nit pick or tell you not to protest. You, me, all of us have every right and every reason to be in the streets.

Our government gives us new reasons daily to be outraged. But is protest solving anything? Reforms solve anything or voting solve anything? Maybe it's time for a strategy that can produce the desired results. Maybe its time to find some leaders that actually have a strategy that's not only workable but will deliver results. Or at least leaders that don't continue offering us the same mistakes over and over again.

Whenever you are ready I wrote CopsRCorrupt to help get you started.

President Trump or REVOLT

By Christopher R Rice


Living the American dream. Marvel at our vast technology, we are far superior. We are number one. Americans are better than anyone else. I can't wait till November to crown Caesar and make America great again.

Put those crazy Moslims back in their place again. It's all Obama's fault anyways, for not saying 'radical Islam'. Americans are Christians GODAMMIT. We say Merry Christmas and if you don't like it, then just go back to whatever cave you crawled out of. 'Cause we don't want YOUR KIND here. This is a free country not Sharia Law. 

U-S-A, we are number one. Better than everyone. Come November when we crown Caesar, he will make America great again. Because it sure stinks around here now, let me tell you, this is no joke. Obama's shipped all of our jobs overseas. Obama was even caught spying on the Queen.


I'm not even making this stuff up. I heard it on the news. FOX, CNN, Alex Jones, there's nothing better than a free press. God bless America and the Wall Street Journal. Better than those dirty North Koreans, you can't trust them, they lie.

You can stop looking for WMD because we found them. Not the stockpiles Bush warned us about but some old dusty twenty year old ones that didn't work any more. Best thing that ever happened to me was to be born in America. Go U-S-A.

Death-threats, black-list, open threats of revenge and retaliation, intimidation, whatever it takes to get elected. Our democracy is the best one in the whole world. Just compare us against any third world country out there and we don't look so bad.

Look at our great presidential choices, one's a dirty liar and so is the other. The lesser of two evils. It's the best political system in the world, by far.

My children will inherit a world that I've polluted to the point of no return. And a mountain of debt they will never be able to pay off. God bless America.

And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made. And the sign flashed out its warning, in the words that it was forming. And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls." And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

Right of Defense Against Unlawful Arrest

“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated:
“Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”


“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. if the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.
“When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80; Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.
“These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence.” Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.

“An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery.” State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260

“Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense.” State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100

“One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance.” (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).

“Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In his own writings, he had admitted that ‘a situation could arise in which the checks-and-balances principle ceased to work and the various branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.’ There would be no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded, ‘If there be any remedy at all … it is a remedy never provided for by human institutions.’ That was the `ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous injustice.’” From Mutiny on the Amistad by Howard Jones, Oxford University Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

As for grounds for arrest: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace.” Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197

The Belligerent Claimant

“The privilege against self-incrimination is neither accorded to the passive resistant, nor the person who is ignorant of his rights, nor to one indifferent thereto. It is a fighting clause. Its benefits can be retained only by sustained combat. It can not be retained by attorney or solicitor. It is valid only when insisted upon by a belligerent claimant in person. The one who is persuaded by honeyed words or moral suasion to testify or produce documents rather than make a last ditch stand, simply loses the protection. Once he testifies to part, he has waived his right and must on cross examination or otherwise, testify as to the whole transaction. He must refuse to answer or produce, and test the matter in contempt proceedings, or by habeas corpus.”

District Judge James Alger Fee


United States v. Johnson, 76 F. Supp. 538 (at page 540)
District Court, M.D. Pennsylvania Feb. 26, 1947

Citizens Rise Against Police Brutality Nationwide

(INTELLIHUB) —It appears as though people finally have had enough. Following continuous police brutality, people are taking to the streets.

A heartbreaking video below, dedicated to the victims of police criminality is a must-watch documentary by every citizen in America. It boils down the real issue which is getting worse with time.

A painful documentary “No Justice No Peace: California’s Battle Against Police Brutality” cannot leave one indifferent. The suffering of the people whose family members were murdered by the killers cops is breaking one’s heart.


YouTube video: http://youtu.be/MSHuWFO1-MM



Although we can argue about the causes of this madness, the fact that police violence exist is unarguable. I completely agree with those who are saying that the system is racist and members of ethnic minority groups are at higher risk to get hurt, however, I don’t see racism at the root of this madness. The root of this, in my opinion, lays in the impunity with which cop crime continues. Knowing that they can get away with anything they do, the thugs on power trips are continuing to commit crimes under the guise of law. [5][6]

In support of my point of view I would offer just a few of the many examples which can hardly be seen as race driven phenomena.

First is the Rhode Island incident where police officer Edward Krawets was caught on camera kicking a handcuffed woman in the head.


YouTube video: http://youtu.be/rReKf0tDvOM




Second is Cassandra Feuerstein’s case, a woman who was arrested on DUI charges and was pushed face-first into a jail cell bench, an incident which required her to get facial reconstructive surgery to replace the shattered bones.


YouTube video: http://youtu.be/cAKc5VPfQ7Q




In both cases the victims appear to be white and mindless power abuse appears to be evident.

It is quite obvious to me that unless cops will be held responsible and receive severe jail sentences for their actions, nothing will change. I have no doubt that jailing the cops would fix this problem overnight. Sentences like three years in the county jail or state prison for aggravated assault and/or battery charges against citizens and life in prison for murder would do the job. But whether this simple solution to a serious problem will become a reality, remains to be seen.

It’s quite possible that the upcoming march and a rally against police brutality in Sacramento, CA, planned for October 22nd [1][2] and other protests nationwide [3][4] will serve more than just placing another brick in the wall against police brutality, but will also grow into a nationwide movement against police violence.
