” Cops have killed well over 5,000 Americans since 9/11. Many of these killings have occurred during no-knock raids, which have risen by 4000%.
Iraqi insurgents have killed around 3,500 Americans in Iraq since 9/11 in Operation Iraqi “Freedom.”

” The police are getting paid with our money to go on shooting sprees and they are killing more of us than the terrorists from whom they “protect” us. In fact, you are eight times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a terrorist.
Domestic violence is two-four times more common among police families than American families in general.”
This is the most disturbing domestic trend in the US and is a direct result of Federal policies on the “War on Drugs” and the subsidization of military hardware for domestic law enforcement . Innocent people are being killed by our police every week . Radley Balko has chronicled the rise of the militarization of the police in his book : “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces” and it is required reading .

Protects our rights and gets jailed
” Intrepid reporter Emily Miller of the Washington Times wrote an interesting article on Tuesday concerning the two systems of justice that exist in our Nation’s Capital. That is, the justice system that applies to political elites and the justice system that applies to ordinary citizens.
To highlight the inequity in the DC legal system, Miller pointed to two different cases, one involving an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran Adam Meckler and another involving NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ host David Gregory.
Both men violated a subsection of this onerous gun law, DC Criminal Code 7-2506.01:
Unlawful Possession of Ammunition (UA): It is illegal to possess ammunition in the District of Columbia unless the person is: (1) a licensed dealer, (2) a federal or city law enforcement officer acting within scope of duties, or (3) holder of a valid registration certificate of same gauge and caliber as ammunition in possession. It is also illegal to possess, sell or transfer any ‘large-capacity ammunition feeding device.’
A person guilty of this charge can be sentenced to a maximum fine of $1000 and/or up to a year imprisonment.
In 2011, Army Specialist Adam Meckler, who spent 15 months in Iraq and 15-month in Afghanistan during his 9 year military career, was thrown in jail for being in possession of ‘unregistered ammunition.’ “
