NYPD: "Racial profiling is a part of the system..."

Image
By Michelle Conlin

NEW YORK (Reuters) - From the dingy donut shops of Manhattan to the cloistered police watering holes in Brooklyn, a number of black NYPD officers say they have experienced the same racial profiling that cost Eric Garner his life.

Garner, a 43-year-old black man suspected of illegally peddling loose cigarettes, died in July after a white officer put him in a chokehold. His death, and that of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, has sparked a slew of nationwide protests against police tactics. On Saturday, those tensions escalated after a black gunman, who wrote of avenging the black deaths on social media, shot dead two New York policemen.



The protests and the ambush of the uniformed officers pose a major challenge for New York Mayor Bill De Blasio. The mayor must try to ease damaged relations with a police force that feels he hasn’t fully supported them, while at the same time bridging a chasm with communities who say the police unfairly target them.

NYT to Obama: Appoint prosecutor to investigate Cheney for torture

Image
On the heels of the Senate Intelligence Committee's blistering report on the CIA's brutal handling of prisoners after 9/11, the New York Times is calling for a criminal investigation of former Vice President Dick Cheney and other members of the Bush administration for conspiring to commit torture and other crimes prohibited by federal and international laws.



"Americans have known about many of these acts for years," the Times editorial board stated on Monday. "But the 524-page executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report erases any lingering doubt about their depravity and illegality."


In a recent appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," Cheney refused to call some of the tactics, including involuntary rectal feeding, torture.
“We were very careful to stop short of torture,” Cheney said. "We worked hard to stay short of that definition."

5 Ways to End Police Brutality

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 re…

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…

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

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 th…

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  fig…

FBI Aids Terrorist Death Ray Plot to Foil Terrorist Death Ray Plot

Image
By seanPostedJune 26, 2013SodaHead

Why are undercover FBI agents always actively setting up terrorist plots and foiling them?

Well, it appears they may be running out of new ideas. The most recent to come out in the mainstream media actually involved a death ray.

That’s right — a death ray.

The Atlantic Wire reports:

“First, the plan allegedly crafted by [Glendon] Crawford and alleged co-conspirator Eric J. Feight was ridiculous — the death ray wouldn’t work. The plan involved mounting a remote-control operated X-ray laser on top of a truck to kill people without them noticing.



Second, the death ray was inoperable. Crawford and Feight never got a real radiation source.



Third, the death ray was built with the help of the FBI. The undercover FBI agents or informants gave Crawford the tools to build his death ray — X-ray tubes — and technical specs on how to use it. (The specs were altered to change their output capacity.) Crawford had some engineering experience, and was trying to figure out h…
