Sheriff Describes ‘Police Corruption’ After Deputy Arrest

 

 

SWAT Sex Scandal

 

” A King County sheriff’s deputy was arrested Thursday for investigation of promoting prostitution, theft and drugs.

  But the problems extend far beyond the lone deputy, Sheriff John Urquhart said at a Thursday afternoon news briefing.

  Members of the SWAT team were aware that the deputy, Darrion Keith Holiwell, was taking brass shells from a gun range where SWAT practices and sold them. Money went to a slush fund that was said to be affiliated with the Sheriff’s Office – but Urquhart said Holiwell kept that fund secret from commanders.

  There is also evidence that Holiwell sold steroids to members of the SWAT team. But the Sheriff’s Office can’t say exactly how many deputies may be steroid users – it’s against the law for them to test.”

Officer In Viral Traffic Stop Video Faces Federal Lawsuit

 

 

 

 

” It started with a traffic stop, then turned into a search for drugs. The entire incident was caught on tape and the video went viral. Now, the police officer in the video is heading to court for his decisions that day. While he said he had probable cause to search the car, the driver — and now a federal judge — disagree.

  The traffic stop happened on a December morning in 2011. Terrance Huff and his friend, Jon Seaton, were heading home to Ohio when a Collinsville Police Officer pulled them over for allegedly swerving into another lane on Interstate 70. The officer gave Huff a written warning, saying it would not cost him anything. Huff denies swerving, but didn’t argue with the officer. What happened next, though, is why Huff and Seaton are suing Officer Michael Reichert. First, Reichert says Seaton seemed nervous, then he asks Huff about an arrest that happened in 2001. Huff and Seaton are then patted down and Huff is repeatedly asked if there are drugs in the car.”

 

    This affair and Mr Huff’s documentary of it caught the attention of Megyn Kelly and Fox News who invited some legal experts to discuss the merits of Mr’s Huff and Seaton lawsuit …

 

 

” Months later, Huff, who is a documentary filmmaker, obtained the video of the stop and posted it online. Some people who watched it suggested Huff and Seaton file a lawsuit, so they did. The case made its way to a federal appeals court. And now, a judge has ruled Reichert will stand trial for unreasonable seizure, false arrest, and unreasonable search.”

   Officer Reichart has a storied history and not one that inspires confidence . He was fired from Collinsville PD in 2006 and sued his way back on to the force . This man has no business in law enforcement . That much is plain to see from a simple web search but the cops always seem to protect their own .

    This is another case of the police/prosecutors reviewing the evidence and deciding that the police had done no wrong , and thus had to be brought in front of a judge who has thankfully ruled otherwise . The policy of the police reviewing their own behavior is outdated in these times of rampant misuse of authority . It is time for some sort of civilian review board .

” Five San Francisco police officers and one former officer have been indicted on charges of civil rights violations related to alleged illegal searches and theft of property seized from people arrested, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.

  In one indictment, three officers formerly assigned to the Police Department’s Southern Station are accused of conspiracy against civil rights and deprivation of rights in connection with unauthorized searches of single-room-occupancy residential hotel rooms in 2010 and 2011.

  Those officers are Arshad Razzak, 41, and Richard Yick, 37, of San Francisco, and Raul Eric Elias, 44, of San Mateo.

  The indictment alleges they conspired to “injure, oppress, threaten and intimidate” residential hotel occupants by entering and searching their rooms without legal justification. The officers are accused of additional counts of illegally searching two rooms in December 2010 and January 2011.”

Obama Classmate Allegations Fly : A Lying Drug Using Foreigner

And More

 

 

 

” On the Manning Report, Dr. James David Manning interviews Mia Pope, a former high school acquaintance of B. Hussein Obama, whom she knew as Barry Soetoro. She said she was not really friends with Barry, nobody really was, that he liar who used people.

Mia was born in 1963 in California, but moved to Hawaii as an infant. She met Barry Soetoro in 1977 at the age of 13 or 14. They were both members of a group that just hung out at the beach in Waikiki. She knew him as a foreign student and never gave it much thought. She was surprised years later when he reemerged under a different name as a candidate for president.

She details how it was very well known that Barry was not into girls and his membership in the gay community, particularly around Diamond Head. Barry never exhibited any interest in women, she says, everybody knew he was strictly into men.

According to Pope, Soetoro had a serious cocaine habit and the source of his cocaine was the white men that he had relations with. “

 

    Why are we not surprised ? We here have little doubt that the reason Obama has gone to such lengths to keep his past history a secret . We speak particularly of his educational records . We here believe , very strongly , that he made his way through school on grants and loans that were available only to foreign exchange students and that is the primary reason for his refusal to release any college information .

   Who paid for his schooling ? Why are we told , endlessly , that he is the “smartest president ever” yet no one has ever seen any college records whatsoever ?  These are all points of contention that a truly open , honest and unbiased media would have asked , and perhaps answered , in 2007/08 if there was such a thing .

There’s So Much Misunderstanding Around Marijuana. Here’s What’s Really Happening To People When They Smoke Weed

 

 

” Drug warriors have long tried to smear marijuana as a dangerous scourge, seeking to criminalize possession of a leaf they clearly do not understand. The key to comprehending its effects is by better grasping our physiology.

Marijuana is not magic. Marijuana (botanical name, cannabis) affects the human body because the plant-based cannabinoids in marijuana, once ingested, can “plug into” the cannabinoid receptors that are used by the cannabinoids made by our own bodies.

It’s not just people that have cannabinoid systems. All mammals have them. All creatures do, except bugs. Although cannabinoid systems can utilize the plant-based cannabinoids in marijuana, the cultivation and preservation of cannabinoid systems by the evolutionary process has nothing to do with pot. The cannabinoid receptor appeared on the planet at least 550 million years before marijuana.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

America, It’s Time For An Intervention

 

” The world can be a dangerous place, but even with all the bad drivers, treacherous heights and violence, more people are dying from drug overdoses than from any other cause of injury death, including traffic accidents, falls or guns.

According to the latest available data from the Centers for Disease Control, drug overdoses were responsible for 38,329 deaths in 2010, 30,006 of which were unintentional. That’s a rate of 105 every day, and that number doesn’t take into account the 6,748 people treated every day for the misuse or abuse of drugs.

In comparison, traffic accidents were responsible for 33,687 deaths in 2010. Firearms killed 31,672 people, and 26,852 died as a result of falling.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scandals May No Longer End Political Careers

 

 

” Sex. Drugs. Cheating on a spouse.

Those words used to add up to shame. Put them in the same sentence as a politician’s name, and they ended careers.

Not anymore. The latest batch of unlikely back-from-the-swamp hopefuls are Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer. Weiner resigned his New York City congressional seat two years ago after revelations that he’d tweeted a sexually suggestive picture of himself to a woman who was following him on Twitter. Spitzer left the state’s governorship in 2008 after reports surfaced that federal investigators had tagged him as “Client 9,” soliciting high-end prostitutes.

Each now has a decent shot at a big prize, Weiner New York’s Democratic mayoral nomination, Spitzer the city’s comptroller job. Spitzer led his closest rival by 9 percentage points in a Wall Street Journal-NBC 4-Marist poll released Thursday.

They join the growing roster of comebacks, or at least serious attempts, by scandal-tarred politicians:”

 

 

 

 

 

 

State Department Memo Reveals Possible Cover-Ups, Halted Investigations

 

 

State_Dept_Investigation

 

 

 

 

 

” CBS News has uncovered documents that show the State Department may have covered up allegations of illegal and inappropriate behavior within their ranks.

The Diplomatic Security Service, or the DSS, is the State Department’s security force, charged with protecting the secretary of state and U.S. ambassadors overseas and with investigating any cases of misconduct on the part of the 70,000 State Department employees worldwide.

CBS News’ John Miller reports that according to an internal State Department Inspector General’s memo, several recent investigations were influenced, manipulated, or simply called off. The memo obtained by CBS News cited eight specific examples.”

 

 

     We find it absolutely amazing just how much scandalous behavior on the part of the Obama administration  has come to light in such a short period of time . All of a sudden , as the scales of blind obeisance have fallen from the eyes of our “gatekeepers” in the MSM , all manner of shameful , embarrassing and criminal behavior has been brought to light .

     Just imagine , if the partisanship and bias had been absent from the start the American people could have been spared the past five years of misery , deception and lies. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video Shows Inmates With Beer, Drugs, Guns In New Orleans Prison

” This video was shown in a federal courtroom this morning in the ongoing trial over whether conditions at the Orleans Parish jail are unconstitutional. In it, inmates in the now-closed House of Detention drink beer, play dice for money, snort drugs and even show off a loaded handgun. “

From Military Arms Channel

“There seems to be one common thread among all of the mass killings in the US — the perpetrators were using various mood/mind altering drugs. It’s interesting how our government focuses on the tools used to commit these violent acts but refuses to take a look at the source of these violent acts. If they’re really concerned with our safety and the safety of our children, why don’t they address the actual problem? Is it because the pharmaceutical business is a multi-billion dollar business that has a lobby even more powerful than the NRA?”

83% Believe Bad Parenting Bigger Factor Than Gun Laws in Public Shootings

 

gunpoll

 

 

” A recent NBC/WSJpoll shows that more people blame bad parenting and Hollywood for mass public shootings than guns themselves. The results display that the massive public relations campaign to convince people that inanimate objects or society are more to blame more than individuals or their particular family backgrounds has not been very successful.

The wording of the question, polled of 1000 respondents (300 by cellphone):

Now, I’m going to list several items and would like you to tell me how much responsibility — if any— each item might bear for the mass-shootings that have taken place over the last year or two in Tucson, Arizona; Aurora, Colorado; and Newtown, Connecticut – a great deal, a good amount, not too much, or none at all? “

 

And where did guns figure in the poll respondent’s mind ? 

 

” Most importantly, guns themselves were blamed the fifth most at 59 percent, the rate of people who agreed that “assault and military-style firearms being legal to purchase,” and “the availability of high capacity ammunition clips” contributed to the occurrence of mass public shootings.”

 

Shooting at St. Louis Biz School: Top 10 Facts You Need to Know

 

st. louis school college shooting

 

 

” A shooting at the Stevens Institute of Business and Arts (SIBA) in St. Louis has injured at least two people, including the 21-year-old gunman. The shooting occurred at about 2 p.m. Central Time.

Here’s what we know so far.

1. The Gunman is a Student of the School

SIBA is a four-year college that specializes in qualifications such as business admin, interior design, fashion, and retail management. Fox2Now reports:

The student was well-known by the faculty. He was a long time student at the school.

He is believed to have been attending the school on a part-time basis for two years.

Can We Keep Guns Out of the Hands of the Mentally Ill?

 

 

 

 

” Glenn Reynolds points us to this thoughtful post by The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg that takes up the sensitive issue of the mentally ill and their access to guns:

We must find a way to make it more difficult for the non-adjudicated mentally ill to come into possession of weapons. This is crucially important, but very difficult, because it would require the cooperation of the medical community — of psychiatrists, therapists, school counselors and the like — and the privacy issues (among other issues) are enormous. But: It has to be made more difficult for sociopaths, psychopaths and the otherwise violently mentally-ill (who, in total, make up a small portion of the mentally ill population) to buy weapons.

One can immediately see the problems. There are privacy issues to consider, as well as trying to define “mentally ill.” John Grohol explains:

I don’t believe Obama was talking about anyone who’s ever had a mental disorder diagnosis — that would include over 25 percent of the population.

I think he meant to say those who fall under the Gun Control Act of 1968 — specifically people who have been involuntarily committed, found by a court to be incompetent or dangerous, or those who’ve already committed a crime but were found not guilty by reason of insanity.

According to Gostin & Record (2011), recent Supreme Court rulings generally push states to “regulate dangerous persons rather than dangerous firearms” but that existing gun restrictions pertaining to individuals with mental illnesses are ineffective.”

Much Needed Sunshine

If any organization needs to be disinfected with a dose of sunshine , the UN is it . 

A new film by Ami Horowitz and Matthew Groff, set to premiere in select theaters on June 1, aims to trace the U.N.’s decline from an institution created in 1945 — “to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small … and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, and for these ends to practice tolerance and live together in peace” — to one that would honor Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe as a “Global Leader for Tourism.”
