Watch: Body Camera Catches Baltimore Cop Planting Drugs During Arrest

by Daniel Lang, SHTF Plan:
Few things in life are more terrifying than an encounter with a police. Fortunately, most encounters prove to be uneventful, and leave us with nothing more than a speeding ticket and a sour mood. But nonetheless, being stopped and questioned by a cop under any circumstance can be nerve-wracking, because the police have a lot of power over us. All it takes is one encounter with a really bad cop, and your life can be ruined.

That fact should be abundantly clear after a police officer in Baltimore was recently caught planting drugs at the scene of a crime, which led to an unnamed suspect being wrongfully imprisoned for months (he has since been released). Strangely enough, what exposed the officer’s crime was his own body camera.

Police Body Cameras To Be Equipped With Facial Recognition

by Nicholas West, Activist Post:
Given the steady roll-out of biometrics in banking, personal computing, and travel as of late, it seemed to be just a matter of time before police were equipped the latest biometric ID technology.

Defense One reports that,

Device-maker Motorola will work with artificial intelligence software startup Neurala to build “real-time learning for a person of interest search” on products such as the Si500 body camera for police, the firm announced Monday.

WATCH: Cops Storm Bar Like It’s a War Zone, Assault Dozens of Innocent People

by Justin Gardner, The Free Thought Project:
Merced, CA – Police stormed into a hookah lounge in the early morning hours on Sunday, July 9 in a manner that can be described as nothing short of terroristic. Video captured by a security guard at Chandelier’s Hookah Lounge shows us once again that all too often, cops are the ones who needlessly escalate situations into fear and violence.

The video begins with multiple cops screaming at patrons to back up, right after barging in with riot guns and batons. The crowd of people enjoying a relaxing Saturday night socializing at the hookah lounge are bewildered and frightened by this sudden act of aggression.

The Danger of Obedience: Fake Police Crime Spree

0

by Joe Jarvis, The Daily Bell:
The police do not care about keeping you safe. If they did, they wouldn’t put innocent people in danger every day by driving unmarked cars, behaving unprofessionally, and performing no-knock raids. All these things make it quite easy to impersonate an officer in order to commit a crime.

People know their lives are literally in jeopardy if they disobey even the most minor order from a police officer. Innocent people are no exception, and simply questioning an officer, or asserting one’s rights has gotten people beaten, arrested, and even killed.

Because of this environment created by an overbearing oppressive police state, a perfect opportunity has opened up for criminals to easily exploit their victim’s fear of police. Criminals simply need to pose as police, and any resistance on the part of their victims melts away.

THIS IS HOW YouTube is KILLING FREE SPEECH

by SGT, SGT Report:
On July 6th I received a STRIKE against my You Tube account for an interview I did with researcher Sofia Smallstorm that was uploaded and posted to You Tube … 22 MONTHS AGO.

On Thursday, You Tube removed the interview claiming that it violated the community guidelines which prohibit “predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, bullying or intimidation.”

Domestic Abuse: A Smart Device Called the Police

This article is not about fear. This article is about common sense.

Last week, we discussed the internet of things, and how smart devices could be used to literally know more about us than we know about ourselves.

This is not some distant future dystopia we are talking about. It is already happening.

Disturbing Video Shows Cop Brutally Beating Mentally Ill Woman with Baton

Decatur, GA — Katie McCrary is, is a homeless woman doing whatever she can to survive. But while she may have a criminal history, she, like other law-breakers, still deserve to be treated humanely and with some sense of decency. But that didn’t happen, according to critics, when a Dekalb County police officer struck her with his baton nearly too many times to count.

Police were called to the scene of a local convenience store at the corner of Glenwood and Line St. in Decatur last month. McCrary had been propositioning patrons for money. Others say she’s frequently there and may have mental issues.

WATCH: Cop Trespasses, Shoots Family’s 2 Dogs In Front of Child for No Reason

Minneapolis, MN – Sadly, there’s been another cop versus dog shooting. This time the horrific shooting took place in Minneapolis and didn’t involve just one family pet — but their two dogs.

As TFTP has noted, if citizens kill police dogs, it’s practically considered murder, and the suspects are charged with felonious assault on a police officer (dog). But since police wear a badge, they can kill our pets at will with hardly any ramifications.

Jennifer LeMay did her part to protect her home and property by installing security cameras, and we’re glad she did because the shooting of her two dogs was caught on camera.

WATCH: 9yo Boy Handcuffed, Thrown in Police Cruiser for Playing With Toy Gun

Two videos of the same incident paint two very different scenes of how a police officer reacted to a child playing with a toy gun.

Spartanburg, SC — A video posted to social media over the weekend caused heavy backlash for the Spartanburg police department which prompted them to release body cam video of the same incident. The videos show a 9-year-old boy being handcuffed and placed in a police cruiser for allegedly throwing rocks and playing with a toy gun.

The two videos highlight the importance of being truthful when sharing evidence of alleged police misconduct and the damage done by those out to spread false information.

Gestapo is Back: German Homes Raided Over Facebook Posts

by Joe Jarvis, The Daily Bell:

Germany has taken its war on “hate speech,” also known as free speech, to the people.

Already Germany has pretty strict laws against citizens using Nazi symbols and denying that the Holocaust happened. Apparently, lawmakers miss the irony of going full Gestapo on citizens for free speech, as offensive as it may be.

But they are not stopping there. The German government has raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful posting on social media.

Man Beaten on Video ‘Like Rodney King’ for Crossing the Street — Mass Protests Planned

Getting accused of jaywalking, as a slew of recent videos shows, can be a dangerous or even deadly experience for people, especially if they have dark skin.

Mesa, AZ — A major protest against police brutality will occur Thursday evening to be held outside police headquarters in Mesa after cell phone footage surfaced showing Mesa Police giving a man a beat down for allegedly crossing the street the wrong way — jaywalking. The cell phone footage shows Jason Michael Barton getting manhandled by two Mesa police officers.

Predictably, Mesa police are blaming the victim for the officers’ use of force, but community leaders like Reverend Jarrett Maupin aren’t buying it. And they say the community is outraged.

VIDEO: Cops Force K9 to Maul Innocent Man After Asking Them to Stay Out of His Yard

Disturbing video shows Florida cops unleash a K9 on an innocent man after he allegedly asked them to stay on the other side of his fence.

Bartow, FL — Marquis Wright, 21, will likely be getting a hefty check at the expense of Bartow taxpayers in the near future as the taxpayers are held accountable for the horrific actions of the Bartow Police Department. For asking police to stay out on the other side of his fence, Wright was attacked, tasered, mauled by a K9, and kidnapped.

When police came to his home on Monday, Wright had done nothing wrong, committed no crime, and had harmed no one. However, the fact that Wright was entirely innocent did not prevent his attack and subsequent arrest.

How “Nothing to Hide” Leads to “Nowhere to Hide” – Why Privacy Matters in an Age of Tech Totalitarianism

from The Daily Bell:
Would you allow a government official into your bedroom on your honeymoon? Or let your mother-in-law hear and record every conversation that takes place in your home or car – especially disagreements with your husband or wife? Would you let a stranger sit in on your children’s playdates so that he could better understand how to entice them with candy or a doll?

Guess what? If you bring your phone with you everywhere, or engage with a whole-house robo helper such as Alexa or Echo or Siri or Google, you’re opening up every aspect of your life to government officials, snooping (possibly criminal) hackers, and advertisers targeting you, your spouse and your children.

The following is not a screed against technology. But it is a plea to consider what we’re giving up when we hand over privacy, wholesale, to people whom we can neither see nor hear… people whose motives we cannot fathom.
