Former Cops Speak Out About Police Militarization

Quote:
American policing really needs to return to a more traditional role of cops keeping the peace; getting out of police cars, talking to people, and not being prone to overreaction with the use of firearms, tasers, or pepper spray. Also (said the old crank) those damn polo shirts and blue jean alternate "uniforms" have got to go too. Don't get me wrong, I've been in more than my share tussles and certainly appreciate the dangers of police work, but as Joseph Wambaugh famously said, the real danger is psychological, not physical.

Arlington SWAT team harasses 'counterculture' gardeners for 10 hours at gunpoint, with little effective result. What a great use of public funds.

...

Arlington, Texas — A family with a passion for gardening and conscious living was raided by the Arlington SWAT team early Friday morning. All 8 adults present in the house were initially handcuffed at the gunpoint of heavily armed SWAT officers, including the mother of a 22 month old and a two week old baby who was separated from her children during the raid.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana suffers from the eighth highest murder rate in the nation, and yet local law enforcement apparently considers it a top priority to conduct sting operations on gay men seeking consensual sex.

According to an investigation by The Advocate, deputies have been going undercover and busting gay men using an anti-sodomy law the Supreme Court had declared unconstitutional ten years ago. (Sheriff Sid Gautreaux says he hadn't heard about the Supreme Court decision.)

Quote:
A man who recently refused to comply with an internal checkpoint in Pine Valley, Calif. filmed a border patrol officer smashing his way into his vehicle while he was inside. He was then detained for over nine hours before being released without charge. When Robert Trudell of Yuma, Ariz. was stopped at the checkpoint miles from the border a few weeks ago, he refused to wind down his window and speak to the Border Patrol officials, or consent to a warrantless search of his car.Instead he picked up his camera and started photographing the agents that began to surround the vehicle.

Trudell had rigged his car up with several video cameras in anticipation of passing through the checkpoint, having previously driven through it in the preceding days. Trudell is actively opposed to internal checkpoints and makes a habit of protesting them by filming his non compliance and then uploading the footage to his YouTube channel.

After several minutes of refusing to comply and photographing the agents, they brought out a drug sniffing dog, which failed to turn up any narcotics. Agents then consulted the Sheriff before literally smashing through the car window, sending shards of glass towards Trudell?s face and torso.

The agents then ordered Trudell to get out of his car, before putting him in handcuffs.

Responding to queries on the incident from news websites and blogs, Trudell explained what happened after the cameras stopped rolling.

?I was detained for 9 hours following, handcuffed for 6, fingerprinted, photographed, criminal history check, FBI Interview looked up, stripped everything but my shoelaces, ID and Credit Cards and placed on foot in El Cajon that night at 10:30. The ACLU was waiting to see if they are pursuing Criminal Charges against me before filing a Civil Suit against them.?Rob?

Trudell also gave the following comments to reporters with The Blaze:

?The event started in Pine Valley, California, at 12:35 in the afternoon and I was released on foot in the city of El Cajon, California at 10:30 p.m. that night by two plain clothes agents driving an unmarked black Dodge Charger,? Trudell explained. ?The agents placed a brown paper bag in the parking lot which contained my shoelaces, ID and credit cards along with asset forfeiture receipts for my computers, cameras, car, phone and glasses.?

He also clarified that he has not been charged with any offense that he is aware of.

Trudell gave more details in answers to questions posed to him by viewers of his video:

Q. What happened after?

A. ?I was hoping the window would be broken open. I bought a spare ahead of time. Afterward everything I had was confiscated other than ID and Credit Cards. They held my Computers, Cameras, Phone for 21 days with no sight of when I?d get it back. I was handcuffed for 6 hours of my 9 hours in Detention. I wasn?t offered a toilet for most of that time. I was set on the? streets of El Cajon at 10:30pm on foot 200 miles from home and 100 miles from my destination. I was denied covering events. ?Rob

someone was listening:

Deputy files civil lawsuit against 9-1-1 caller after he was injured during assault at her home | abc13.com

Quote:
A deputy is now suing a woman who called for help during an emergency. It all stems from a deputy-involved shooting that happened in Katy last year.

The deputy says he was injured when she made that call from her subdivision. In this lawsuit, he claims the homeowner failed to adequately warn 9-1-1 of the dangerous situation he was walking into.

Judge Orders Doctors To Pump Prisoner's Stomach, Doctors Tell Judge To **** Off - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Quote:
Milwaukee police officers who were chasing Terrance Fleetwood last winter were sure they saw him swallow a bag of suspected cocaine.

So sure, they persuaded a judge to sign a search warrant to perform a surgical procedure on Fleetwood to retrieve the suspected contraband by sucking it from his stomach up through his nose.

The case came to light this month when the search warrant was finally filed.

Fleetwood's attorney, Bridget Boyle, said it was the first and only time she's ever seen police seek, and get, a warrant to have something as serious as nasogastric aspiration done to get evidence from a suspect.

"Thankfully, the doctors refused to do it," Boyle said recently.

Missing M-16 vanished from Sheriff's Department in February - latimes.com

Quote:
It took about six months before the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department realized it was missing one of its M-16 rifles, a department official said Wednesday.

Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said it appears the fully automatic-capable assault weapon vanished in early February, though he could not say how officials reached that conclusion and why they just recently discovered it was gone.

Family claims dad dies in NYPD raid in Brooklyn | 7online.com

Quote:
NEW YORK (WABC) -- A Brooklyn family is claiming a 43-year-old father of eight collapsed and died after NYPD officers wrongfully stormed their home in a morning raid.

The NYPD says they did respond to the address on Rockaway Parkway in the Brownsville section, but they dispute the family claim.

The incident took place after 5 a.m. Thursday morning after the NYPD was on a foot pursuit and somehow came through the family's back door.

According to the family, police raided their home early Thursday morning and Carlo Alcis collapsed and died during the raid after suffering a heart attack.

State Police Investigation - West Virginia's Eyewitness News

Quote:
A West Virginia State Police trooper who federal prosecutors claim was involved in helping a judge plot against a romantic rival previously was named the state's top trooper.

Trooper Brandon Moore was placed on administrative leave Thursday following the indictment of Mingo County Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury on federal conspiracy charges.

Federal prosecutors said Moore agreed to file a false grand larceny charge against a man at Thornsbury's request.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Moore will not face charges. But state police said they are investigating

Seems like this problem will get worse before it gets better:
An improving economy has allowed [Orange County Sherriff] Demings to open 125 positions that have been frozen since 2009. So far, 60 have been filled as the pool of qualified applicants grows with service members leaving the military and entering civilian life, said the Sheriff's Recruiting and Background Manager Mary Ann Salazar.

"We are a paramilitary organization, so hiring veterans makes sense, and its important to the sheriff to bring in these highly skilled men and women," Salazar said.

More than half of the deputies sworn in Wednesday have served in the armed forces. Deputy Benjamin Jones, for example, served three tours overseas in Iraq and twice in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army and Florida National Guard before joining the sheriff's office as a patrol deputy.

Yeesh.

Here's another good article:
How to serve a warrant: 1972 versus today, by Lt. Harry Thomas | Police State USA

The overuse of heavy handed SWAT raids is due to ASSET FORFEITURE. Well if you let the cops keep assets seized during raids, well DUH, then they RAID more.
