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

handcuffed beaten 1050x525

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...

Police Shoot Sleeping Teen on Couch (While Serving Warrant on Wrong Person)

williams 1050x525

If you were to read the local news sites in Las Vegas earlier this month, you would think that police—while saving the public from a dangerous murderer—were ambushed and two of them were shot, barely escaping with their lives. The “shooter’s” face, plastered on news sites, telling the public that he fired 18 shots at officers before they finally and heroically killed him. But Isaiah Tyree Williams wasn’t so much a shooter as he was a victim of police violence. Their badges do nothing to change this reality. After police executed Williams in his own home, a report from a local CBS...

500 Criminal Cases Could Be Dropped After NYPD Officer Caught Framing People for Drug Crimes

dirty copo 1050x525

Charges against the now-disgraced NYPD detective Joseph Franco are being welcomed by the families of more than 130 more New Yorkers as it is leading to the dismissal of their family members’ charges. Franco was reportedly caught framing innocent individuals last year and this is the second wave of case dismissals tied to his corruption.. Last April, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez’s Conviction Review Unit asked for the dismissal of 27 felony convictions and 63 misdemeanor convictions based on Franco’s corrupt policing. Now, that number has grown as Bronx Supreme Court...

Shakedown Street – Cops And Local Government Shakedown Locals In Small Town Alabama

2022 01 20 09 09

“It’s my understanding that a guy can go out there and I mean, he can fall into a black hole,” Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr said of drivers getting entangled financially. “You know, we’ve had a lot of issues with Brookside.” Jefferson County Sheriff Mark Pettway said the same. “We get calls about Brookside quite regularly because they really go outside their jurisdiction to stop people,” Pettway said. “Most of the time people get stopped, they’re going to get a ticket. And they’re saying they were nowhere near Brookside.” Police stops soared between 2018 and 2020. Fines...

WATCH: Insane Cop Strangles Female Officer After She Interferes With Brutalizing Restrained Suspect

crazed raging cop attacks fellow cop 1050x525

Since the murder of George Floyd rocked the nation in 2020, across the country police departments and municipalities have passed legislation requiring cops to intervene if they see their fellow officer—like Derek Chauvin—committing a crime or violating someone’s rights. Since then, TFTP has reported on several instances of good cops stepping in to stop bad cops from unleashing their pent up anger on unwitting suspects. In the following scenario, however, a good cop stepped up to stop a bad cop and it got her attacked. A veteran Sunrise police sergeant is on desk duty and under...

Two LA Cops Fired After Video Proves They Ignored Robbery to Play Pokémon Go

Over the years, TFTP has reported on multiple instances of cops ignoring calls for various reasons. But LAPD officers Louis Lozano and Eric Mitchell become the first cops on which we’ve reported who ignored calls because they chose to play video games instead of responding to a robbery call in progress. As innocent citizens waited for their security force to show up—who they are forced to pay for—Lozano and Mitchell were catching Snorlax in Pokemon Go. The cops were never charged for betraying the community’s trust, but they were actually fired. For the last three years, they have been...

WATCH: Dozens of NYPD Remove Child Without Vaccine Passport from Restaurant

nypdboy 1050x525

As TFTP reported, earlier this month, New York mayor Bill de Blasio expanded the already-tyrannical “Key to NYC” program which imposed a vaccination mandate for workers and customers at indoor dining, fitness, entertainment and performance venues. Anyone who wished to enter a public place would first be required to give that place a glimpse into their personal medical records by providing proof that they had taken a covid-19 vaccination. Beginning last week, this discriminatory and unscientific practice was expanded to include children, ages 5-11, who are now also forced to show proof of...

For One Day, Protestors Stopped the War Machine

coservative protestors 2013 dsc 0034

I’ve attended most of the major antiwar protests in Washington since 9/11. At a 2005 protest, a cop tried to whack me on the head with a wooden pole. At a 2007 protest, I snapped a picture showing George W. Bush hanging next to the U.S. Capitol. But my favorite protest was a potent little ruckus that I almost missed. On a sunny late summer day in 2013, I ambled to downtown Washington to hike with a bunch of folks who enjoyed bantering as much as I did. The route for the jaunt started on the National Mall, passing by the Smithsonian, heading toward the World War II Memorial and points...
