Texas the new Mississippi Burning?

Here we go again, with the same Police Department as arrested Sandra Bland on diaphanous reason.

This time the out of control cops taser a City Councilman in his front yard for the crime of coming outside to see what was going on in his front yard.

Texas councilman seen on video being tased by police

A video out of Prairie View, Texas, is raising questions about police use of force. A councilman is seen getting tased while on his knees and with his back to officers. Police say he was resisting arrest.

Jonathan Miller, 26, was on his knees with his hands by his side when he was tased on Thursday night by Prairie View Texas Police.

Before using the taser, police warned the councilman, several times, to put his hands behind his back.

“He’s going to have to tase you because you’re not doing like you’re supposed to,” an officer can be heard saying on camera before tasing him.

“I live here man, I live here,” Miller is heard saying after being tased.

“I told you to back off and you didn’t listen,” said one of the officers.

Officers arrived at the scene to question Miller’s fraternity brothers, who were outside of Miller’s home. Miller came out to ask what was going on.

“I’m not trying to be combative or anything,” Miller told officers before being tased.

“I understand you’re coming in at the tale end of it,” a female officer replied. “I just told you everything is okay. They already explained everything to me.”

But the situation escalated when another officer asked Miller to move away.

“Go over there before you go to jail,” a male officer said to Miller.

Miller just stands and looks at the officer.

He was tased, arrested and spent the night in jail…

Coincidentally, the female officer in the body camera video is the same one who transported Sandra Bland to a county jail after she was arrested in July. Bland made national headlines after authorities say she hanged herself while in jail.

If I were that Councilman, that Police Chief better have a really good car repair shop, and be real comfortable with what he is making now…Because it will be 2050 before he gets any new cars, or a raise.

Hints You May Want To Consider a Career Change

Driving a stolen car to the Police Department?

Suspected Car Thief Drives Stolen Car To Police Station

The accused was picking up court papers about a previous auto theft he was involved in — and were found in yet another stolen car.

Authorities say an 18-year-old man drove a stolen car to police headquarters to pick up court papers about a previous auto theft he was involved in — documents that were found in yet another stolen car.

Carnell Eugene Butler now faces charges in three stolen car cases.

St. Petersburg police say officers found a stolen Infiniti on Sunday. Inside, they found Butler’s documents related to a June auto theft arrest.

Detectives contacted Butler, who arranged to pick them up. When he arrived at police headquarters, a detective arrested Butler and found keys to a Hyundai Sonata in his pocket. The car was located a block away.

It, too, had been reported stolen.

Butler was being held without bond. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.

Cops Beat Unarmed Mom in Front of Kids

Here we go again…This time a white mom. The second Cop on the scene lands a couple of MMA worthy hammerfists on the woman who is already being restrained on the ground.

It is amazing white conservative racist types think BLM efforts to make Police accountable isn’t a good thing for everyone.

Cops Beat Mom in Front of Young Kids

In 2013, Cindy Hahn came upon a car with its doors wide open and the alarm blasting. Curious, she asked a Carlsbad, California, police officer who was on the scene what was going on—to which he replied, “Mind your own f—king business.” Shocked at this response, she began shooting video, which apparently made him continue to swear at her. Hahn called the police department to report him, and left.

Within minutes, she found herself pulled over for a seatbelt violation, removed from her car, and pinned to the ground. By the same cop. Backup officers arrived, and cellphone footage shows Hahn being punched repeatedly in the face as her children screamed from the car nearby.

Charges of resisting arrest and battery on a police officer were dropped in July when the San Diego district attorney saw this video, her lawyer, Mark Geragos, reports. The officers now face charges of their own, including lying under oath during Hahn’s criminal case. Reached for comment, the Carlsbad Police Department said it “looks forward to bringing this lawsuit before the proper judicial authorities.”

Hahn says her son still talks about the incident.

“The only thing that he’ll talk to me about is, ‘I couldn’t protect you, Mom. I could’ve. I could’ve got him off you. I could have helped you,’” she told CBS Los Angeles.

Bill Maher’s Anti-Semitism

While in America we commonly confuse the term Anti-Semitism as referring to a hatred of Jewish people, Semitic peoples include Arabs.

Today, the word “Semite” may be used to refer to any member of any of a number of peoples of ancient Middle East including the Akkadians, Assyrians, Arameans, Phoenicians, Hebrews (Jews), Arabs, and their descendants.

Bill Maher has been on a tear recently in a campaign against a Islamic High School kid, Ahmed Mohammed who was arrested at his school for bringing in an electronic clock he had built to show his science teacher. This crusade is a horrific abuse of Maher’s position as a media personality reaching millions – vs a High School kid, with little or no voice at all.

Racism…Pure and simple.

Big bad Bill Maher, vs 13 year old kid


Bill Maher lights into 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed again: “He didn’t invent anything!”

On Friday night’s episode of “Real Time,” host Bill Maher continued to criticize liberal “ninnies” who think 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed should be lionized for what the comedian characterized as “taking the back off something.”

Maher played a YouTube clip of someone opening up an alarm clock and placing it in a pencil case, and claimed that it looked both exactly like what Ahmed brought with him to school and exactly like a bomb. “This is like pouring milk on a bowl of Cheerios and claiming you invented cereal,” Maher said.

“And then made it look like a bomb!” guest S.E. Cupp added.

School officials “absolutely did the right thing, thinking it looked like a bomb,” Maher said.

“But it didn’t look like a bomb, it looked like a clock,” Ron Reagan replied.

“It looked exactly like a bomb!” Maher shouted.

“Haven’t you seen any of the ‘Die Hard’ movies?” Cupp asked, momentarily confusing Hollywood with reality.

Reagan the audacity to suggest that it looked like an alarm clock, saying that “here’s the thing about bombs, they have the timer — and then those wires that come out are attached to fissile material that explodes.”

“Excuse me, Ron, but I don’t notice all that when I see that hunk of metal,” Maher said. “Try taking that through airport security.”

“An alarm clock? I think I could,” Reagan replied. “It’s a clock!”

“It’s a clock only because we were told it’s a clock,” Maher said, seemingly unaware that’s it is a clock no matter what other people tell you it is — as demonstrated in the very video clip with which he opened this segment.

Maher later accused Ahmed of not being an inventor so much as someone who “takes the back of something” electronic equipment and shows it to people.

And I would have to ask…What exactly has Bill Maher ever invented? I mean – if I link into the US Patent Office Database, would I find Bill Maher’s name under any invention except repeated applications for Patent for “more bullshit”?

I personally produced and have been awarded several US and International Patents. When I was Ahmeds age, I certainly wasn’t inventing things, but I was building things from electronics parts that others had made, and implementing them in sometimes novel ways – for which I was awarded a National Science Award. I think almost all of the people who become inventors have a curiosity and a desire to tinker, which is why they tend to contribute to and participate in social groups called “Makers”. Science doesn’t appear in a vacuum. Almost everything scientist build is based on extending a body of knowledge from a base of that created by predecessors. The first step to extending that knowledge is understanding what has already been done.

So I call Bullshit on Bill.

Video if James Blake “Arrest”

The cop comes up, doesn’t identify himself, and slams Blake to the ground…

Shortly after the video was released, Mr. Blake, who is biracial, released a statement reiterating earlier comments that the officer didn’t identify himself, ask his name or “in any way afford me the dignity and respect due every person who walks the streets of this country.”

And while he said he greatly appreciated the apologies, “extending courtesy to a public figure mistreated by the police is not enough.”

Mr. Blake went on to say he hopes the incident will be a “catalyst for change in the relationship between the police and the public they serve” and asked that the city make “a significant financial commitment” to improve the relationship between law enforcement and citizens in certain neighborhoods.

The operation that led to Mr. Blake’s arrest began after police received a tip from an Internet courier service that had received suspicious orders, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said in a news conference on Thursday.

The sting resulted in the arrests of two men who were at the same hotel as Mr. Blake, Chief Boyce said.

Before the operation, the courier service gave the NYPD a photo from a social media account of a person believed to be one of the suspects, Chief Boyce said, which bore a striking resemblance to Mr. Blake. The NYPD didn’t release the photo, which turned out to be of an innocent person, Chief Boyce said.

24 Year Old Man Dies in Jail after Being Held 4 Months for Theft of Candy Bar

A young man, with mental health issues, died after being jailed nearly 4 months for shoplifting $5 worth of candy bars and a Soda – despite being identified as a Mental Health Patient.

Since Raygun shut down all the public Mental Health Hospitals, the jails have increasingly become the sole source of treatment for poor victims. The results have been catastrophic.

Young black man jailed since April for alleged $5 theft found dead in cell

A young black man arrested by police in Portsmouth, Virginia, on the same day that one of the city’s officers fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old, has been found dead in jail after spending almost four months behind bars without bail for stealing groceries worth $5.

Jamycheal Mitchell, who had mental health problems, was discovered lying on the floor of his cell by guards early last Wednesday, according to authorities. While his body is still awaiting an autopsy, senior prison officials said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

“As of right now it is deemed ‘natural causes’,” Natasha Perry, the master jail officer at the Hampton Roads regional jail in Portsmouth, said of his death in an interview. Perry said there were no obvious outward signs of injury to the 24-year-old’s body. Portsmouth police are looking into the death.

Mitchell’s family said they believed he starved to death after refusing meals and medication at the jail, where he was being held on misdemeanour charges of petty larceny and trespassing. A clerk at Portsmouth district court said Mitchell was accused of stealing a bottle of Mountain Dew, a Snickers bar and a Zebra Cake worth a total of $5 from a 7-Eleven.

“His body failed,” said Roxanne Adams, Mitchell’s aunt. “It is extraordinary. The person I saw deceased was not even the same person.” Adams, who is a registered nurse, said Mitchell had practically no muscle mass left by the time of his death.

A few hours after Mitchell was arrested on 22 April by Portsmouth police officer L Schaefer for the alleged theft, William Chapman was shot dead by officer Stephen Rankin outside a Walmart superstore about 2.5 miles away in the same city. State prosecutor Stephanie Morales said on Thursday she would pursue criminal charges over Chapman’s death.

Except for a brief item stating that an inmate had been found dead, the story of Mitchell’s death has not been covered by local media in Virginia, and is reported for the first time here.

Adams said in an interview that her nephew had bipolar disorder and schizophrenia for about five years. Nicknamed Weezy, he lived with his mother Sonia and had been unable to hold down work. “He just chain-smoked and made people laugh,” said Adams. “He never did anything serious, never harmed anybody.”

Officials said that after his arrest, Mitchell was taken to Portsmouth city jail, where he stayed for almost three weeks before being transferred across the city to the regional jail on 11 May.

Ten days after that, the court clerk said, Judge Morton Whitlow ruled Mitchell was not competent to stand trial and ordered that he be transferred to Eastern State hospital, a state-run mental health facility in Williamsburg, for treatment.

The clerk said that typically in such cases “we do an order to restore the defendant to competence, send it to the hospital, and when the hospital has a bed, we do a transportation order, and he’s taken to the hospital.” Whitlow reiterated the order on 31 July and was due to review the case again on 4 September, according to the clerk.

But the hospital said it had no vacancy and the 24-year-old was therefore detained in jail until his death on 19 August, according to Adams, Mitchell’s aunt, who said she had tried to assist the hospitalisation process herself but was left frustrated.

“He was just deteriorating so fast,” she said. “I kept calling the jail, but they said they couldn’t transfer him because there were no available beds. So I called Eastern State, too, and people there said they didn’t know anything about the request or not having bed availability.”

When asked which state agency was ultimately responsible for ensuring Mitchell was transferred to the hospital, the court clerk said: “It’s hard to tell who’s responsible for it.”

Officials from the court, the police department and the jail could not explain why Mitchell was not given the opportunity to be released on bail.

Mitchell previously spent four months in the jail from April 2010, also on charges of petty larceny and trespassing, before being ordered released by the courts, according to Perry, the prison official.

She said Mitchell returned to the jail in January 2012, again on a petty larceny charge, before being released in May 2012 having spent a month in a state hospital…More...
