5 Ways to End Police Brutality

By Christopher Rice
Follow on Twitter.


The police have a very long history and pattern of abuse. Do a Google search and you'll see that this problem is nothing new.

So what can you do? Our options are limited. Here are five direct actions that any person or group of people can do to help end police brutality and excessive force.

5 Ways to End Police Brutality

1. Protest at police stations, city hall and other government venues, daily.

I’ve seen a lot of anger, however it must be channeled more effectively than just saying fuck the police or calling them pigs or gloating over police killings. If this anger is channeled correctly we can take action to actually reduce the amount of police brutality.

2. Record the Police We must use our cameras every time police harass us to catch them in the act. Then we can use the Internet and the viral media to expose these actions worldwide. CopWatch.com and the Black Panthers do this. They have a police watch and follow the police with a camera and record their actions. Now that cameras are so cheap and people have cameras on their phones, it is a lot easier to hold the police accountable for their actions.

Police are fully aware that they have a dangerous job in which they may get killed or injured dealing with criminals when they sign up for the job. Criminals whether they be black or white do not represent the black community but police do represent the government. Black citizens did not sign up for being at risk for police brutality or killings. When unarmed peaceful civilians are killed by the police, they are being killed by agents of the government that is supposed to represent them.

3. Vote Out Politicians Who Condone Police Brutality Politicians who do not address issues like police brutality must be voted out of office.

We live in a time when elected politicians ignore the needs of their constituents; where the judiciary and police institutions will not uphold the rights of citizens; where the media are afraid to report the truth; where lawlessness abounds and ordinary people are left unprotected and defenseless against the rapacity of a few. The answer to our dilemma is for people of courage to actively help each other. Only if we unite can we succeed. That is the only way. There is no other way.


4. Engage in Dialogue With the Cops We must use moderate police organizations to work with the police to stop police brutality. Groups like LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) and 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement have done a lot to combat police brutality and people need to work with them as an intermediary to deal with community issues with the police.

It’s not enough to be angry at law enforcement and say Fuck the Police. We must channel our anger into actions that will stop police brutality in the future.


5. Take Legal Action Against Police We need to take legal action as well. The best way to hurt police brutality is by hitting them in the pocket. If the police keep on getting sued for brutality they’ll be forced to deal with the issue. Every incident of police brutality should be reported to both the government and the media.

Police should be in the communities to serve and protect not to harass and arrest. The war on drugs is really a war on the community. People are treated like insurgents in occupied territory and not citizens in need of protection. We need to address how the war on drugs has become a war on us that has caused more problems than it has solved.

In America it is the criminals who get promotions and bonuses, bailouts and tax breaks. The middle class gets the squeeze and the poor are either caged up or shot like dogs in the street.

We have given them every benefit of the doubt, every chance to reform, we can not in good conscience continue to wait and hope. The time is now, we must act.


We can no longer in good conscience trust the politicians, the corporations or the police to police themselves.

Mismanaged Yellowstone, Yosemite jails

By Ruffin Prevost

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The National Park Service says it has revamped operations at jail facilities in two of its largest and most popular parks after a review by federal auditors revealed that the detention sites were being improperly managed.

But the agency has been slow in releasing additional public documents related to jail problems, and it was unclear what consequences, if any, facility managers faced for failing to abide by federal rules in supervising the lockups at Yellowstone and Yosemite national parks.

The inspector general for the Interior Department, the parent agency of the Park Service, found in its review that "neither park complied with departmental requirements regarding inmate monitoring, inspections, emergency planning and evacuation planning."

The report, completed in May but only publicly released last month, focused on failures by jailers in both parks to personally monitor detainees at least every 30 minutes, as required. Monitoring was instead done primarily by closed-circuit television.

Inspectors in Yellowstone "found that detention officers did not directly supervise inmates" and only personally observed inmates "when delivering meals or transporting inmates" to a courthouse less than a half mile away in Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming.

An earlier inspector general's memorandum, issued in January 2014 after an initial jail inspection, recommended closure of the Yellowstone facility until changes could be implemented, based on concerns about health and safety at that lockup.

But Yellowstone's jail was kept open because park managers began to make changes called for by the memo, Park Service spokesman Jeffrey Olson said. He said Yosemite in California likewise was implementing reforms urged by the inspector general.

Olson, citing administrative difficulties in his office posed by holiday staff shortages, said he was unable this week to provide copies of the Jan. 13 Yellowstone jail closure advisory or the Jan. 27 response from the Park Service.

Olson also said he had "no idea" whether any Park Service employee had faced disciplinary measures for failing to follow Interior Department procedures.

Yellowstone and Yosemite maintain jails where about 150 people end up detained every year in each park, typically for less than two days, for various infractions. A federal magistrate judge is stationed at each park.

The Park Service operates lockup facilities at 26 different sites in all, including 11 U.S. Park Police locations in and around New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Other sites include large, remote parks such as the Grand Canyon and Hawaii Volcanoes national parks.

U.S. to sue NYC over rights violations of teen Rikers inmates

By Nate Raymond and Andrew Chung
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice plans to sue New York City over widespread violations of the civil rights of teenage inmates at the Rikers Island jail complex, it said on Thursday, raising the prospect of years of federal oversight of the troubled jail.

The move by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for New York's southern district, followed a report in August that found there was a pattern of violent abuse of 16- to 18-year-old male inmates by guards and by others held at Rikers.

"Today, we have taken a legal step we believe is necessary to ensure that critically important reforms are implemented at Rikers Island," Bharara told reporters at a press conference. "In our view, at the end of the day, there must be a court-ordered agreement."

Bharara is seeking a legal agreement known as a consent decree, which typically also entails the court appointing monitors to oversee that the promised changes are being made, he said.

Only a handful of the country's thousands of jails, prisons and mental hospitals have problems serious enough to warrant the Justice Department's attention each year under the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act, or CRIPA, under which the lawsuit would be filed.

The statute gives the department the power to carry out a civil investigation into broader systemic problems of inmate abuse, as opposed to a more narrow criminal investigation into misconduct by individual guards and other employees.

The Justice Department, which opened an investigation into the conditions at Rikers in 2012, says the city has allowed guards to routinely batter inmates, sometimes even after the inmates had been cuffed. The department's report also criticized the heavy use of solitary confinement and lack of management oversight, among other complaints.

Bharara's office has been in settlement talks with the city for the last several months and hoped to reach a deal, but court papers filed in federal court in Manhattan Thursday said that "thus far, insufficient progress has been made."

The proposed lawsuit said the problems at Rikers showed "deliberate indifference to the safety and health" of the inmates, many of whom are unconvicted defendants awaiting trial.
 
  
Mayor Bill de Blasio's office and the city's Department of Correction, which have not disputed the report's findings, as well as the city's powerful jail guard's union did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The mayor, who took office in January and has repeatedly said conditions at Rikers are deplorable, announced an end to the practice of solitary confinement during a visit to the jail on Wednesday.

If other large urban prisons investigated by the Justice Department are any guide, New York City may only be at the start of a protracted process.

The Los Angeles County Jail has been struggling to address the findings of a CRIPA investigation for 12 years, according to the Justice Department.

Officials overseeing the Cook County Jail in Chicago signed a consent decree with the Justice Department in 2010, and four court-appointed monitors have overseen the jail since then.

Merry Christmas from General Strike to end Corruption

The Pause of Mr. Claus
By Arlo Guthrie

This next song we're going to dedicate to a great American organization. I'd like to dedicate this to our boys in the F.B.I.

Well wait a minute it's hard to be an F.B.I. man. I mean first of all, to be an F.B.I. man you have to be over 40 years old and the reason is it takes at least 25 years with the organization to be that much of a bastard. 

Well it's true, you can't just join. It needs an atmosphere where your natural bastardness can grow and develop and take a meaningful shape in today's complex society.

That's not why I wanna dedicate this song to the F.B.I. I mean the job they have to do, is a drag. I mean they have to follow people around, you know that's part of their job.

Follow me around. I'm out on the highway and I'm drivin' down the road and I run out of gas, I pull over to the side of the road, they got to pull over too, make believe that they ran out.

I go to get some gas, they have to  figure out whether to stick with the car or follow me. Suppose I don't come back and their stayin' with the car? Or if I fly on the airplane, sometimes I get there and there's only one seat. Suppose he gets on and fills the last seat? So you can't get on, then he gets off, then you can get on and what's he going to do.

Well it's a drag for him, but that's not why I wanna dedicate this song to the F.B.I. During these hard days and hard weeks, everybody always has it bad once and awhile. 

You know you have a bad time of it and you always have a friend that says "hey man, you ain't got it that bad-look at that guy". And you look at that guy and he's got it worst than you. And it makes you feel better that somebodies got it worse than you. But think of the last guy for one minute.

Think of the last guy, nobodies got it worst then that guy, nobody in the world.

That guy, he's so alone in the world, that he doesn't have a street to lay in for a truck to run him over.

He's out there with nothin'. Nothin's happenin' for that cat. And all he has to do, to create a little excitement in his own life, is to bum a quarter from somewhere, call up the F.B.I.

And when the F.B.I. answers, say I dig ISIS. And I'm inviting Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his friends over for dinner.
 

Then hang up the phone. And within two minutes and not two minutes from when he hangs up the phone, but two minutes from when he first put the quarter in, they got 30 thousand feet of tape rollin'. Files on tape, pictures, movies, dramas, actions on tape. Then they send out a half million people all across the entire world, the globe, to find out all they can about this guy. 

'Cause there's a number of questions involved in this guy. I mean if he was the last guy in the world, how'd he get a quarter to call the F.B.I.? There are plenty of people who aren't the last guy that can't get quarters. He comes along, he gets a quarter. I mean if he had to bum a quarter to call the F.B.I., how was he going to serve dinner, for all those people?

How could the last guy make dinner for all those people and if he could make dinner and was going to make dinner then why'd he called the F.B.I?

They find out all those questions within two minutes and that's a great thing about America. 

I mean this is the only country in the world, well it's not the only country in the world that could find out stuff in two minutes. But it's the only country in the world that would take two minutes for that guy. Other countries would say he's the last guy, f'em, you know. But in America, there is no discrimination and there is no hypocrisy. 'Cause they'll get anybody. And that's a wonderful thing about America. 

And that's why tonight, I'd like to dedicate this to every F.B.I. man in the audience. I know you can't say nothin'. Ya know you can't get up and say: "hey", 'cause then everybody knows that you're an F.B.I. man. And that's a drag for you and your friends. Their not really your friends, are they?  

So you can't get up and say nothin'. 'Cause otherwise, you got to get sent back to the factory. And that's a drag for you. And an expense for the government.  And that's a drag for you.  

We're going to sing you this Christmas carol. This is for all you bastards in the audience. It's called 'the Pause of Mr. Claus'.

Why do you sit there so strange?

Is it because you are beautiful.

You must think you are deranged.
 
Why do police guys beat on peace guys?

You must think Santa Claus weird, he has long hair and a beard. Giving his presents for free.

Why do police guys mess with peace guys?

"Lets get Santa Claus."

'Cause Santa Claus has a beard, he must be a terrorist.

He has long hair, could be a pacifist.

What's in that pipe that he's smoking?

Santa wears a red suit, must be a Communist.

Why do police guys beat on peace guys?

Mr. Claus delivers suspicious packages in the middle of the night, let's kidnap him, ship him out of the country & torture him, 'cause were so uptight.

Merry Christmas from General Strike to end Corruption.
