The Harrowing Conversations

I sometimes coach (MMA etc) cops and military types. They know my opinion on certain things and I am not shy about expressing them. I at times feel a hypocrisy in working with them and have even mentioned that to them. Those few I work with, are "nice" men. Easy to get along with and just regular blokes. This past Thursday I had a heavier debate with one lad, he is ex military and now a cop. He said that it is important to have a strong government to rule over others. He says that disarmed populace is good because statistically Aus has very low stranger gun deaths (this may be due to...

End No-Knock Raids So Cops Stop Killing Innocent Homeowners

no knock raids 1050x525

In the land of the free—thousands of times a year—American police officers kick in doors, smash windows, deploy tear gas, and explode flashbang grenades all to serve a single, often unarmed, individual with an arrest warrant. These militarized affronts on the homes and property of often entirely innocent individuals all too frequently end with the suffering of the innocent or loss of innocent life. Recently, in only a matter of weeks, two different innocent people were killed by police during these raids. Despite the fact that the officers yelled “police” as they broke into the homes...

(Photo Credit: shimlatimes.in) Here are a collection of excerpts from mainstream sources on the Shanghai lockdowns. **Reminder**: China has one of the highest vaccination rates on the planet at 86.1%. In Shanghai, 25 million people remain locked down as 26,087 new COVID cases were reported on Sunday...   The situation has grown increasingly dire: Two people who tried to leave their apartment to walk their dog were confronted by a COVID prevention worker who they ended up attacking. At least one man allegedly tried to get the cops to apprehend him so he could at least have food to...

Cop Enters Family’s Backyard, Shoots Innocent Father, ‘Sentenced’ to Firearms Training

johnson joe 1050x525 (1)

As frequent readers of the Free Thought Project understand, police officers mistake innocent individuals for criminals all the time. Often times, their fear gets the best of them and these folks who have committed no crime and harmed no one, are beaten or arrested only to be exonerated down the road. One man in Idaho Falls, however, will not have a chance to be exonerated because the police who mistook him for a suspect—executed him. On February 8, 2021, Elias Aurelio Cerdas, a 26-year-old officer who graduated from training less than a year before the shooting, entered the backyard of...

Charges Dropped Against Father Who Shot at SWAT Team Who Injured His Baby During Raid

As TFTP reported in February, Corey Marioneaux Jr., 24, is a father of two, church-going community member with no criminal record who defended his family from armed intruders. Because the intruders were cops, however, Marioneaux was charged with attempted murder of a law enforcement officer. He was completely innocent. Thankfully, however, justice has prevailed and the State Attorney’s Office announced its decision not to criminally prosecute Marioneaux as he acted in self-defense and they could not prove that he knew the intruders were cops. “State Attorney Ginger Bowden Madden announces...

WATCH: Father of 5 Refuses Blood Test, Half Dozen Cops Handcuff and Suffocate Him to Death

cant breathe 1050x525

The words ‘I can’t breathe’ have become a rallying cry for those who advocate for an end to police brutality. In case after gruesome case, these words are captured on video as cops squeeze the life from American citizens. Though police apologists will claim that saying “I can’t breathe” means you can breathe because you can talk, time after time, they are proven wrong. Although they were likely uttered countless times before, as cops squeezed the breath from their victims, the words “I can’t breathe” were burned into history when officer Daniel Pantaleo choked the last breath from Eric...

Taxpayers Left Holding the Bag After Cops Kill Man Who ‘Pointed Finger Like a Gun’

On the night of March 12, 2020, Donnie Sanders, 47, was merely driving down the road, minding his own business when an officer with the Kansas City police department began following him. Moments later, Sanders would be shot and killed. He was unarmed and had harmed no one. Last March, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office announced that no charges would be filed in the death of Sanders because prosecutors claim Sanders pointed his fingers or hand in the shape of a gun which justified the unidentified officer dumping four rounds into the unarmed man. After seeking and not receiving any...

A tragedy unfolded on Tuesday in Philadelphia after a 12-year-old boy was shot in the back and killed. The boy was running from several police officers when two of them opened fire. Police have since claimed that even though 12-year-old Thomas Siderio was running away, he was still a threat. The incident unfolded Tuesday night as four plainclothes officers, in an unmarked car, saw the boy and another child standing on the street corner. The officers claimed that one of the children appeared to be holding a handgun. According to police, as they activated their lights in the undercover...

Father Charged With Attempted Murder After Defending Family During Police Raid

Corey Marioneaux Jr., 24, is a father of two, church-going husband with no criminal record. So when he heard his front door getting smashed in last week just before 5 a.m. as he slept in his bed, the last thing going through his head was, “it must be the cops, I’ll just act completely defenseless with my wife and children in the house.” Instead, he did what any father and husband should do and defended himself. Unfortunately for Marioneaux, it was the cops and defending his family from them has landed this innocent father in jail, facing many years behind bars. Luckily, during the early...

Stopped for ‘Obstructing Sidewalk,’ Man Handcuffed, Kicked In Testicles and Face By Cops

A disturbing video was leaked which subsequently led to calls for the chief of the Hammond police department to resign. It shows multiple officers put boots and knees on a man’s face and neck as other officers savagely kick and punch him. The entire time, the victim, Kentdrick Ratliff, was handcuffed and unable to defend himself much less pose a threat to the officers. This week, Seth Stoughton, an attorney and former police officer who teaches at the University of South Carolina School of Law, testified in front of the Hammond City Council, claiming that the video of Ratliff’s beating is...
