11-Year-Old Building Tree Fort Says Officer Pulled Gun On Him, Friends

 

 

TREE HOUSE BOY

 

 

 

” A fifth-grader says he was terrified when a police officer pointed a gun at him and his friends while they built a tree fort.
 
  Omari Grant, 11, said he and his friends often play in a wooded area behind his home and were building a fort when a neighbor in the next subdivision called police to complain about what the boys were doing. 
 
  But no one anticipated what Omari and his mother say happened next. 
 
” I guess the release of tension was like, ‘Mom, he had a gun in my face, Mommy. Mommy, he had a gun in my face,’” said Janice Baptiste, Omari’s mother. 

  Omari told Diamant that two officers, one with his gun drawn, rolled up on him and a few of his friends as they built a fort in the trees behind his home.
 
” I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Omari said. 
 
  Omari said the officer holding his gun also used foul language and made him and his friends lay down on the ground.
 
” I learned that they’re supposed to help you not make you feel scared to even come outside,” Omari said. “

Hawaii Law Lets Police Have Sex With Prostitutes

” Honolulu police officers have urged lawmakers to keep an exemption in state law that allows undercover officers to have sex with prostitutes during investigations, touching off a heated debate over the provision.
  Authorities say they need the legal protection to catch lawbreakers.  Critics, including human trafficking experts and other police, say it’s unnecessary and can further victimize sex workers, many of whom have been forced into the trade.”

Protesters Hold Mirrors To Police, Force Them To Stare At Their Own Reflections

” In the Ukraine, hundreds of citizens have been protesting because they are unhappy with their government.

  When the protests started, there was numerous incidents of police brutality. One such attack was caught on camera:

  In response to what they thought was excessive force, the protesters in the Ukraine now bring mirrors with them. They are doing this to literally force police to look at their own reflections and face what they have turned into.”

 

 

 

 ” Many Ukrainian citizens claim that cops in their country only protect the government — not citizens, communities, and children.”

Hijab Uniform Approved For Canadian Police Force – Even Though They Have No Muslim Officers

 But Canada is dhimmi'd out just in case .

 

 

” In the name of diversity and multiculturalism, Western governments will gladly edge towards extinction as long as they’re seen as “tolerant” among dim-witted constituencies.

Speaking of Canada:

LA County Hired Sheriffs With History Of ‘Serious Misconduct’

 

 

 

 

 

” The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2010 hired 200 officers whose background checks showed “serious misconduct” – from harassing inmates to soliciting prostitutes – in previous law enforcement jobs, The Los Angeles Times reported.

  The newspaper cited leaked documents, saying they provided a rare glimpse into hiring decisions at the nation’s largest sheriff’s department, which has been dogged in recent years by scandals related to deputy abuse and racially based profiling.

  Of the 280 police the sheriff’s department hired after taking over the Los Angeles County police force in 2010, 200 had been rejected from other agencies “because of past misdeeds, failed entrance exams or other issues,” the newspaper reported Sunday.”

 

 

   Seventy one percent ! That figure is astounding . How are we to have faith in law enforcement when this sort of practice reveals serious lapses in judgement on the part of the management ? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Miami Gardens, Store Video Catches Cops In The Act

 

Bodega Owner CCTV

 

 

” Saleh was so troubled by what he saw that he decided to install video cameras in his store. Not to protect himself from criminals, because he says he has never been robbed. He installed the cameras — 15 of them — he said, to protect him and his customers from police.

  Since he installed the cameras in June 2012 he has collected more than two dozen videos, some of which have been obtained by the Miami Herald. Those tapes, and Sampson’s 38-page criminal history — including charges never even pursued by prosecutors — raise some troubling questions about the conduct of the city’s police officers.

  The videos show, among other things, cops stopping citizens, questioning them, aggressively searching them and arresting them for trespassing when they have permission to be on the premises; officers conducting searches of Saleh’s business without search warrants or permission; using what appears to be excessive force on subjects who are clearly not resisting arrest and filing inaccurate police reports in connection with the arrests.”

   Jeez , the reports of abuse of authority never end , do they ? From a hospital in Boston kidnapping a young girl to a Miami shop keeper having to install security cameras to protect his customers from the police , our society is being overrun by corruption of the “authorities” .

Pennsylvania Police Department Claims Departmental Policy Forbids Them From Being Recorded in Public

lancaster cop

” A Pennsylvania cop responding to a report of an accident refused to talk to the citizen unless his friend turned off the camera.

The citizen insisted on his friend recording, so Lancaster police officer Philip Bernot walked back to his car and drove off, refusing to take the report.

The citizen said he called the desk sergeant to complain, but was told it is a departmental policy not to be recorded.

A departmental policy has to be in writing, so will someone please call them and ask for a copy while recording the conversation?

If you live in a two-party consent state, which you can find out through this link, inform them that you’re recording and just start asking them questions. “

New Jersey Supreme Court Restricts Police Searches of Phone Data

” Staking out new ground in the noisy debate about technology and privacy in law enforcement, the New Jersey Supreme Court on Thursday ordered that the police will now have to get a search warrant before obtaining tracking information from cellphone providers.

The ruling puts the state at the forefront of efforts to define the boundaries around a law enforcement practice that a national survey last year showed was routine, and typically done without court oversight or public awareness. With lower courts divided on the use of cellphone tracking data, legal experts say, the issue is likely to end up before the United States Supreme Court.”

TRAYVON MARTIN’S INVOLVEMENT IN LOCAL BURGLARIES COVERED UP BY MEDIA, SCHOOL, POLICE, PROSECUTORS

 

 

oCTOBER 2011 - 1

 

 

” It was that M-DSPD internal affairs investigation which revealed in October 2011 Trayvon Martin was searched by School Resource Officer, Darryl Dunn. The search of Trayvon Martin’s backpack turned up at least 12 pcs of ladies jewelry, and a man’s watch, in addition to a flat head screwdriver described as “a burglary tool”.

When Trayvon was questioned about who owned the jewelry and where it came from, he claimed he was just holding it for a “friend”. A “friend” he would not name.

On October 21st 2011 a burglary took place a few blocks from Krop Senior High School where Trayvon Martin attended. The stolen property outlined in the Miami-Dade Police Report (PD111021-422483) matches the descriptive presented by SRO Dunn in his School Police report 2011-11477.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nevada Family Says Police Occupation of Homes Violated the Third Amendment

 

” You don’t often hear about lawsuits based on the Third Amendment, the one that says “no soldier shall in time of peace be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law.” That usually overlooked provision is cited in a federal lawsuit recently filed by Anthony Mitchell and his parents, Michael and Linda Mitchell—an oddity for which we can thank the Henderson, Nevada, police department.

The Mitchells, who live in separate houses near each other in the Las Vegas suburb, were forcibly evicted from their homes on July 10, 2011, by police officers responding to a domestic violence report involving one of their neighbors. Here is how it all started, according to the complaint:”

” Three police officers have been pulled from street duty for their safety in Southern California after a video of them shooting a dog dead as they arrested its owner hit the internet.

Extra Security Forces In Istanbul As Protesters Return To Taksim Square

 

 

Published on Jun 16, 2013

http://www.euronews.com/2013/06/16/ex…

” Hundreds of protesters have continued pouring into Istanbul on Sunday morning, heading for Taksim Square, despite police efforts to deter them.

Extra security forces have been brought in to back up riot police as the city braces itself for more violent confrontations.

Around 500 to 600 people have occupied the central Bosphorous bridge, closing it off to traffic.

Overnight, armoured vehicles sealed off Taksim Square, as police stormed neighbouring Gezi Park to evict protesters. 

As police moved in, protesters fled into a hotel at the back of the park, several of them vomiting, as tear gas and blasts from what witnesses said were percussion bombs -designed to create confusion rather than injure – engulfed the park.

Witnesses say that hundreds of people were left injured.

“If you go down on the street you will see hundreds of wounded people. There is nobody to take care of them and there is no (health) equipment,” one protester said.”

” The tension in Turkey is quickly approaching its breaking point as thousands of protesters gear up for a third week occupying Istanbul’s Gezi Park. This being the modern age, where computers fit in our pockets and everybody’s a potential terrorist, some locals decided to take their little camera-enabled, radio-controlled quadcopter for a spin. This, again, being the modern age, police promptly shot it down. And yes, a drone was harmed in the making of this movie.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

LAPD Holds Downtown Counterterrorism Drill

 

 

 

 

” Gunfire echoed through downtown and law enforcement helicopters swooped low among office towers Thursday, but it was all a drill as the Police Department’s counter-terrorism unit demonstrated a response to a weapon-of-mass-destruction threat.

The late-morning demonstration began with an explosion of flash grenades, officers firing blank ammunition at pretend suspects, and police rappelling out of a county Sheriff’s Department helicopter and onto a hotel bridge on Figueroa Street.”

 

    Nearly as disturbing as the show of a militarized police force is the fact that the crowd was enthralled with this practice run for denying these same citizens their rights .

Swedish Citizens Take To Streets To Defend Property From Rioting Immigrants

 

 

 

” Faced by another night of terror at the hands of predominantly immigrant rioters,Swedes grown tired of the police’s inability to put an end to the unrest took to the streets Friday night to defend their neighborhoods.

The vigilantes were described as a motley crew of homeowners and concerned citizens, as well as neo-Nazi activists and football hooligans.

In the Stockholm suburb of Tumba the police decided to abandon their earlier non-intervention policy as a large group of police officers rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters.

” – It makes me sick to see the police clamp down on us Swedes with full force and without warning, using nightsticks and tear gas, while they don’t do a damn thing about the immigrants. We are only trying to help maintain order, while the immigrants set cars and buildings on fire”, said a young man who wished to remain anonymous.”

3 Minors Point Gun At Man, Woman In North Philadelphia

 

 

” Police say three minors pointed what appears to be a gun at two people in North Philadelphia earlier this week.

The youngest suspect, 10-years-old, turned himself in on Wednesday night.

Police say the gun was either a toy gun or a BB gun. Authorities continue to search for two additional minors.

The incident occurred in the Tioga section of the city on Monday around 6:45 p.m.

According to police, a 27-year-old man was approached by a group of males on the 3300 block of North 16th Street.

Police say one of the males then reached into his backpack, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the victim saying “hey buddy.” “
