    It's just a restoration, in some part, of your natural right to resist unlawful arrest.

    Don't roll up your window. It's aggravated assault on an officer's fragile ego and a shooting offense.



    Followup to the hose holder: his family gets a huge payout from the taxpayers. The cops won't do anything different; it's no skin off their nose.

    Steroid abuse has become a major problem among police officers

    Investigations in Oregon, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, New York and other states have in recent years found disturbing evidence of police officers abusing steroids. But Connecticut police insist they've never seen it here.

    A national expert who's been studying steroid use in all types of subcultures from athletics to the military believes "tens of thousands" of cops all across the U.S. are on such illegal drugs. But the head of the largest police union in this state, a man who spent 20 years with the Milford P.D., says the issue has never even been raised in any Connecticut disciplinary hearing he knows about.

    A recent scandal in New Jersey turned up 248 public safety officials — most of them cops — who were getting steroids prescribed by a steroid-abusing doctor, and New Jersey officials responded by ordering random police drug testing. But a Connecticut State Police spokesman says his department doesn't do that.

    Just last month, a federal appeals court ruled a New Jersey police chief was within his rights to order several of his officers to undergo testing for steroids, strip them of their weapons and put them on desk duty.

    But state Rep. Stephen Dargan, the long-time co-chairman of the Connecticut legislature's Public Safety Committee, says he's never, ever even heard of questions about police steroid abuse being voiced in this state. "That's a new one on me," he says.

    John Hoberman is a University of Texas professor who's spent 25 years studying the social implications of widespread steroid use among professional and amateur athletes, body builders, the military and police.

    And statements from Connecticut law enforcement officials that they don't believe cop-steroid abuse is a significant problem here, or the fact that the issue hasn't even been raised before in this state, comes as no surprise to Hoberman.

    "This has been a suppressed and under-reported story," he says of steroids and the cops. He has found most police departments "prefer to deal with [steroid abuse] as an internal matter" rather than have it become public.

    Ohio Cops Use Fake Drug Checkpoint to Dodge Fourth Amendment

    In 2000 the Supreme Court ruled that random vehicle checkpoints aimed at finding illegal drugs violate the Fourth Amendment's ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. That is why police in Mayfield Heights, a Cleveland suburb, do not have a drug checkpoint. Instead they have the next best thing: a fake drug checkpoint. The Associated Press reports that Mayfield Heights police "recently posted large yellow signs along Interstate 271 that warned drivers that there was a drug checkpoint ahead, to be prepared to stop and that there was a drug-sniffing police dog in use." None of that was true, but the cops hoped the signs would cause drivers carrying drugs to make conspicuous attempts to avoid the nonexistent checkpoint, thereby providing reasonable suspicion for a stop.

    According to A.P., the police "say that four people were stopped, with some arrests and drugs seized," but "they declined to be more specific." Three drivers called attention to themselves by making U-turns. The fourth, Medina resident Bill Peters, was pulled over because he stopped on the side of the road a couple of times to check his phone for directions and to reconnect the power adapter after it came loose. For his caution he was rewarded with a search that turned up nothing illegal. Dominic Vitantonio, a local prosecutor, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer the cops would have had to skip the search if Peters had not consented to it. But since the cops had a drug-detecting dog, they could have manufactured probable cause readily enough.

    ATF Proud of Expensive "Stash House" Scam to Arrest Drug Thugs

    The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives is very proud of its hot new venture: using "fake drugs, big bucks to snare suspects." USA Today reports:

    The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the agency in charge of enforcing the nation's gun laws, has locked up more than 1,000 people by enticing them to rob drug stash houses that did not exist. The ploy has quietly become a key part of the ATF's crime-fighting arsenal, but also a controversial one: The stings are so aggressive and costly that some prosecutors have refused to allow them. They skirt the boundaries of entrapment, and in the past decade they have left at least seven suspects dead.

    The USA Today story, which includes video clips as well, documents just how much time and effort goes into setting up fake drug crimes rather than actually uncovering, stopping, and solving actual drug-related crime.

    The arrests don't come cheap. A single case can go on for months and require dozens of federal agents and local police officers.

    Former ATF supervisor David Chipman, who left the agency last year, said the public deserves to know more about how the ATF is using its resources. "There are huge benefits, and there are huge downsides," he said. "Do you want police to solve crimes, or do you want them to go out and prevent crimes that haven't occurred yet? What are the things you're willing to do so that your kid doesn't get shot?"

    Officer testifies the man he killed pointed a gun at his chest

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The wrongful death lawsuit filed by the mother of a man shot and killed by Kansas City, Mo., police five years ago began Wednesday in Jackson County Court.

    Angela Davis is asking the jury to award her more than a million dollars for the death of her son, Terry Davis, who was 26-years old.

    Robert Vivano, the officer who fired the shot that killed Davis took the stand on Wednesday.

    He said he was chasing Davis in the area of 26th and Jackson, when Davis suddenly turned around and faced him. Vivano, a 12-year veteran of the police force and a member of the SWAT team told the court that he had no choice but to shoot Davis when Davis pointed a gun at his chest.

    “I was shocked that he had a gun in his waistband,” testified Robert Vivano. “He pointed it at my chest.”

    Two women who witnessed the shooting said that’s not how it happened.

    They claim Davis had his hands up and was getting on his knees when he was shot at point-blank range.

    “His hands were up and he was kneeling,” said Michelle Evans, who was a witness.

    Angela Davis, the victim’s mother, had to be led out of the courtroom at one point after she started crying when a picture of her dead son was shown to the jury.

    “From up to down this bullet did not go straight into his chest,” said Andrew Protzman, the attorney representing the Davis family. “It went in from up to down.”

    Cop seizes woman's iPad for recording and won't return it.



    Mike Heise Harassed for Filming/Open Carry in West Chester PA



    Man says he was wrongfully arrested after filming on public streets

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Matthew Haley was filming from a public sidewalk at the corner of 4th Street and Walton Way when he says he was first approached by deputies.

    Cellphone video shows the encounter with deputies that put 28-year old Haley in jail.

    "Sir, I'm in public. I'm not committing any type of crime," Haley says to deputies as they approach and ask for his ID several times.

    He says after he refused, the phone was taken from him, but it still managed to record sound from the arrest.

    You can hear Haley ask, "What am I being arrested for?"

    The deputies reply, "We're sheriff's deputies, and we were conducting an investigation, and you refused to give your ID. That's against the law here."

    That was the night of June 2. Cameras were rolling again when deputies approached him as News 12 was interviewing Haley today.

    This is the how the beginning of that conversation went:
    Deputies: "Who y'all with?"
    News 12's Christie Ethridge: "I'm with Channel 12."
    Deputies: "Who are you with?"
    Haley: "I'm just an independent individual."
    Deputies: "You got any ID on you?"
    Haley: "Am I committing some type of crime?"
    Deputies: "No sir, you're videotaping the Sheriff's Office and the jail, so we just want to find out what you're doing."

    What are you doing? It's a simple question with a simple answer, but since Haley was on public property, News 12 went digging to find out if he had to answer.

    "The average person is not aware that the police are free to come up to a person with absolutely no suspicion of criminal activity and ask questions, however they cannot detain you, and you are free to leave," attorney Sarah Blake said.

    UPDATE:
    California Cops Who Shot Dog Pulled From Street Duty
    http://personalliberty.com/2013/07/0...m-street-duty/

    July 8, 2013 by Ben Bullard

    Three Hawthorne, Calif. police officers have been taken off patrol duty after the department received a deluge of threats from outraged Americans who watched a video of at least one officer shoot and kill a Rottweiler belonging to a man whom they were arresting – for videotaping them – last week.

    Another spectator’s video of the shooting went viral, amassing nearly 900,000 views on Youtube (so far), and the officers involved in the shooting began receiving death threats and angry emails, phone calls and Facebook postings.

    Department spokesperson Lt. Scott Swain said the decision to take the cops off the street wasn’t meant as a disciplinary measure – rather, he said, it’s for the officers’ own safety.

    “There’s been death threats,” Swain told Daily Breeze. “You’d like to believe that maybe some of the people are just venting, but then you’ve got to be realistic – there are crazy people out there.”

    The department’s website was even hit with a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack credited to Anonymous, the computer hacking activist collective, which had threatened exactly such an action after calling the cops’ behavior “unacceptable.”

    The U.S. Border: A Constitution-Free Zone Where Officials Can Grab Your Computer And Copy Your Hard Drive

    Did you know that the U.S. government considers the U.S. border to be a “constitution-free zone”? Did you know that customs officials can take your computer away from you, keep it for 30 days or more, and make a copy of everything that is on your hard drive? Sadly, this is actually true. According to the government, when you choose to cross the U.S. border you temporarily give up your constitutional rights. They can look at anything on your computer that they want to, and if they find anything that violates any law, they can use it against you in court. You may think twice about taking your computer out of the country after you read the rest of this article.

    Checkpoint No Consent, Warrantless Vehicle Search, Right to Remain Silent, US Border Patrol



    Deputy, in viral 4th of July DUI checkpoint video, has checkered past

    MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) - Channel 4 News has learned some new information about the Rutherford County sheriff's deputy who is seen in a viral video at a July 4 DUI checkpoint.

    A 21-year-old man from Rutherford County says his rights were violated, and thousands of people have weighed in with their comments and support online. However, one legal expert disagrees.

    Deputy AJ Ross has faced scrutiny in the past and has actually worked for the department on two different occasions.

    His personnel file shows Ross left the sheriff's department in 2004. He resigned instead of being terminated after failing to show up to testify in court on a day when he had dozens of criminal cases on the docket.

    He also missed a grand jury appearance, according to the file.

    On top of all that, Ross lied about having insurance when he rear-ended someone in his pickup truck, the file shows.

    Video of the DUI checkpoint in Rutherford County, already viewed millions of times online, was recorded by a member of the Libertarian Party and raises questions about drivers' rights at checkpoints.

    "It's nearing 3 million YouTube hits. Just with my name being on the press releases, my email and phone is just being bombarded," said Axl David, communications director for the Libertarian Party of Tennessee.

    The Libertarian Party says the deputies had no reason to search the driver's car, although one legal expert who viewed the tape at Channel 4's request thought the search was justified because the driver was uncooperative when the deputy requested the driver to lower his window.
