Cop Attempts to Shoot Cow, Shoots Fellow Pig Instead

pexels pixabay 63285

Despite much of their training consisting of shooting their weapons, police officers often shoot and even kill innocent bystanders while trying to kill something else. This happens so often that even their fellow officers aren’t safe from the crossfire. Illustrating this point is the fact that a Harrisonburg officer is currently hospitalized after his fellow officer shot him—while trying to kill a cow. The incident unfolded on Saturday night when officers responded to reports of a cow that had escaped a livestock auction site. According to police, the cow actually struck an officer and...

Cop Kills Unarmed Pastor as Family Watches in Horror

Lazy

Patrick Warren Sr. was a loving father, husband, and pastor in his community whose life was taken from him on Sunday after his family called police for help. The family asked for a mental health expert, but according to their attorney, one was not available, so a Killeen cop showed up instead. Less than two minutes after showing up, the officer would kill Warren in his own front yard as Warren was unarmed. The shooting was captured on the family’s Ring doorbell camera as well as cellphone footage and it is causing quite the uproar online. Lee Merritt, a national civil rights attorney who...

Don’t Trust ‘Waco Whitewasher’ John Danforth’s Election Advice

John Danforth

Trump’s attack on the debate commission is an attack on the election itself,” blares the headline from today’s Washington Post op-ed page. That article was written by former senator John Danforth, who has been a member of the Commission on Presidential Debates since 1994. Danforth, an ordained Episcopal priest whose piety earned him the derisive nickname, “Saint Jack,” is one of Washington’s favorite useful idiots of Leviathan. It is no surprise that he would be a permanent fixture on a commission that appears determined to perpetuate the swamp. Danforth wails in the Post that accusing...

Cop Kills Man

San Antonio Police officer Steve Casanova murdered Charles “Chop” Roundtree Jr., an 18-year-old sitting on his couch playing video games. Then his friend, the other security force agent, murdered the guy's dog. And all of us know for a fact already that they will all get away with it too because every cop, DA and judge in Texas, along with the scumbag lawmakers and governor are all guilty criminals too. Their only priority is preying on us and protecting themselves from any accountability....

Shot By Cops, Thwarted By Judges And Geography

How qualified immunity works: U.S. courts show wide regional disparities in granting qualified immunity, the controversial legal doctrine now under fire for protecting officers accused of excessive force. The shooter was Fort Worth, Texas, police officer Hugo Barron. He and his partner had been looking for two shirtless Black men wanted for an armed robbery involving tennis shoes. When the cops spotted David Collie, they pulled into the apartment complex, got out of the squad car and started shouting commands at him. Police dashboard camera video shows that Collie was walking away from...

8/21/20 Jordan Smith on the Pseudoscience Putting Americans Behind Bars

Jordan Smith discusses her research into the "BlueLeaks" archive of the leaked personal data of hundreds of thousands of cops and their cases. Smith was looking for evidence of unscientific techniques that the police use to elicit confessions and get convictions—and she found them in abundance. It turns out that the use of coercive interrogation techniques, discredited pseudoscience and phony forensic methods has become common practice in America's law enforcement agencies for decades. Smith works tirelessly to advocate for what should be acceptable to just about everyone: practices that...

Abusing Amber Alerts

From KSAT.com: South Texas parents wanted in abduction of their 5 children; AMBER Alert issued "CPS officials were going to take custody of the children because of the parent’s involvement with drugs, sheriff’s officials said." So they abuse the Amber Alert system, which is supposed to only be used to save children who have been abducted by strangers for presumably the most heinous criminal purposes to try to deputize every day Texans to hunt down this family who for all we know is accused of smoking pot or having an expired bottle of prescription pills laying around the house. Instead...

Televised Brutality: Cops Raid Man’s Home For Benefit of TV Cameras

Pd Screenshot

The controversial reality TV show “Live PD” was recently taken off the air, as the country is beginning to rethink its relationship with police, and how they are being portrayed in the media. Just like the show’s predecessor “COPS,” Live PD has been accused of crossing ethical boundaries in order to get their footage. In one case, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office in Texas is being accused of intentionally passing up an opportunity to arrest their suspect, Asher Watsky, while he was in court, just so they could raid his home for the television cameras a few hours later. The court...
