Fuck.  Pigs.  Always.The culture of respondance to authority, and electing to reject being politically autonomous and free in exchange for power, means that, at their hearts, anyone in the Police or Military is choosing this fate.It isn’t to “protect and serve.”  If that’s what you want to do, fight for human rights, don’t join a chain of command.
angelclark:

By the way, these cops were doing this for over three and a half years. They ordered hundreds of vehicles to be impounded and when the car owners couldn’t pay the impound fees they either kept the cars for themselves or re-sold them for profit. Nope, cops never target people… SOURCE: http://noarmycanstopanidea.com/one-third-of-california-towns-police-force-arrested-for-scheming-cars-from-poor-hispanics/

CCTV catches pigs planting crack in NYC black man’s store

sancophaleague:

Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man  and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York.    Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.

Andrews was arrested in April  2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.

*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*

The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.

FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says. 

Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”. 

Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

"We dug a little bit more and noticed that some of the attorneys that had been involved had done legal work for the Kochs. There was this individual, Sean Noble, involved, who had a track record of being involved in the Kochs. We didn’t know back then, for certain, that it was the Kochs, but it had all the hallmarks of a Koch operation—a highly sophisticated Virginia law firm whose expertise was creating shell organizations and hiding the money. Their basic trademark, or operating mode, was going to great lengths to conceal who they are—not just Charles and David Koch—but who these 300 or so billionaires who they invite to their conferences twice a year are. I think they know that if people were aware of their identities, they’d be much more skeptical of their messaging."

In case anyone is totally lost regarding the NYC elections tomorrow…

NYC District Attorney: Cyrus Vance Jr (Grudgingly) (D) 

District 7 City Council: Christina Gonzalez (G) 

7th Municipal Court Judge: Denise Dominguez (D)

6 - No

"The juxtaposition of inequality in this city is really bothersome to me. You have shops selling $5 lattes placed right across the street from buildings full of people who could never dream of spending money in that way."

Astounding Personal Shots of Hurricane Sandy

As the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches, New Yorkers are starting to reflect anew on the disaster and its aftermath.

The International Center of Photography and the Museum of the City of New York are highlighting that journey in a jointexhibitioncalled “Rising Waters: Photographs of Hurricane Sandy.”

The 100 photographs in the exhibition were selected from nearly 6,000 entries submitted to an open call. They include high-resolution photos from professionals as well as photos from storm victims taken with mobile phones.

"I tried to focus more on the interest of what is depicted rather than on image quality or sharpness or composition. This is intended to be a little more descriptive," ICP curator Kristen Lubben said.

New York City: 6 CUNY Students Violently Arrested Protesting Ex-General David Petraeus
Six students were arrested Tuesday evening in an unprovoked police attack against a peaceful protest lead by City University of New York (CUNY) students and faculty decrying the University’s appointment of former CIA chief and ex-General, David Petraeus as an adjunct professor to the Honors College. Students were punched, pushed against parked vehicles and thrown to the pavement by police captains and officers after the NYPD forced them off the sidewalk and into the street. Tuesday’s demonstration was called for by the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY.
“As students were chanting ‘War Criminal Petraeus Out of CUNY Now,’ I was shocked to see several police officers grab and brutalize one of the demonstrators,” said City College student Yexenia Vanegas. “This was completely unprovoked, as demonstrators made [it] clear that they were there to defend our university in a peaceful protest.”The arrested students were arraigned Wednesday evening, September 18, at the Manhattan Criminal Court located at 100 Centre Street. The courtroom was flooded with supporters ranging from activists, to fellow students, to CUNY faculty outraged at the NYPD’s response to their student’s attempts to peaceably assemble.
The attack occurred in front of CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College, where Petraeus has been appointed to teach a class on public policy. “Protestors were marching in a circle on the sidewalk and chanting, but the police forced them into the street and then charged. One of the most brutal things I saw was that five police officers slammed a Queens College student face down to the pavement across the street from Macaulay, put their knees on his back and he was then repeatedly kneed in the back,” said Hunter student Michael Brian. “The student was one of those pointed out by ‘white shirt’ officers, then seized and brutalized. A Latina student was heaved through the air and slammed to the ground.”
(the following video depicts the NYPD confrontation beginning at 1:56)

A broad range of CUNY students, faculty and staff members, have been carrying out a campaign of “protest and exposure” against the Board of Trustees’ appointment of Petraeus, whose documented actions as Iraq/Afghanistan war commander and CIA chief include drone strikes on civilians, the use of “enhanced interrogation” centers and the use of white phosphorus weapons in Fallujah, despite international restrictions on their use.
CUNY organizers state that this “blatant use of police brutality against peaceful protestors will not intimidate or deter those who expose the truth about the actions of David ‘Death Squad’ Petraeus and oppose attempts to turn the City University into ‘a war college.’”
