Cops Go To Wrong House To Make Arrest, Let Dog Out, Shoot At Dog In Crowded Area

 

” Several officers attempting to make an arrest at the wrong house quickly turned their incompetence into a deadly situation.

  As police were trying to force their way into the wrong home, they irresponsibly let the home owner’s dog loose.

  When the dog ran out, he was naturally in an excited state. The dog jumped on a frightened lieutenant but didn’t cause any harm. Then one NYPD officer, with absolutely no regard for his surroundings pulled out his service weapon and fired his gun at point blank range.

  As the incident unfolded, a crowd had gathered, some of the people in the crowd had their cameras rolling. One video captured this reckless shooting first hand, from only several feet away.

  Luckily for this dog, this officer was a horrid shot. Also lucky were the people in the crowd who managed to avoid being hit by any of the bullet fragments as they ricocheted off the concrete.

“ No, no you wrong. You wrong. You’re dead *expletive* wrong for that,” a person in the crowd yelled after the officer shot.”

Big Brother Fears As NYPD Attaches Microphones To Lampposts To Listen Out For Gunshots… But They Can Also Record Your Conversations

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Technology now in use by the New York Police Department may be picking up stray conversations.

  Three hundred ShotSpotter microphones are being placed in high crime areas of the Bronx and Brooklyn, with the aim of alerting police immediately when they overhear the sound of gunshots.

  However, the devices pick up more that just the bang of shots being fired in potential crimes, and evidence from conversations they’ve listened in on has been used in court.”

We find the raven emblematic of the death of our privacy

” Audio recordings from ShotSpotter have been used to corroborate testimony that led to convictions in a 2011 Massachusetts murder where a voice was heard shouting ‘No Jason, no Jason!’ before shots were fired. 

  NYPD officials and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a pilot program for the microphones earlier this week.

  Sensors in seven districts of the Bronx have already begun working, and the devices will be turned on in ten districts of Brooklyn on Monday, according to the New York Times. “

   ShotSpotter amounts to “Big Brother” listening posts throughout the public streets , and despite assurances to the contrary raise legitimate privacy concerns:

” The restrictions on triggering events have not stopped some privacy advocates from saying that evidence procured by the ShotSpotters may violate the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. 

‘ If [ShotSpotter] is recording voices out in public, it needs to be shut down,’ the ACLU’s Jay Stanley told Take Part.

  He said his organization is ‘always concerned about secondary uses of technology that is sold to us for some unobjectionable purpose and is then used for other purposes.’ “

   One thing that has become readily apparent in recent years is that if there is a way to abuse and/or misuse technological advances , the State will find a way … Read more on the huge potential for civil rights abuses represented by State ears recording on public streets here

2 Officers Responding To Robbery Call Shot In Bronx: NYPD

 

 

 

 

 

” Two NYPD officers responding to a robbery call were shot in the Bronx late Monday night, police and law enforcement sources say.

  A 30-year-old officer was shot in the arm and lower back, and a 38-year-old officer was shot in the chest and arm near East 184th Street and Tiebout Avenue in the Fordham section shortly after 10:30 p.m., officials said at an early morning news conference.

  The unidentified officers were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital where they are in critical but stable condition, and are expected to recover, the NYPD said.

  The anti-crime officers, who were in plain clothes, were part of a group of five officers who were responding to a call about a robbery at a grocery store on East 180th Street in the Bronx, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. The officers were approaching two suspects who had just entered a nearby restaurant when one of the suspects opened fire, Bratton said. The officers returned fire and two of them were wounded.”

Arrests Plummet 66% With NYPD In Virtual Work Stoppage

 

 

Statistics obtained by The Post show a dramatic drop in NYPD activity between Dec. 22 —
the first weekday after the double cop assassination —
and Sunday, compared with the same period last year.

 

 

” It’s not a slowdown — it’s a virtual work stoppage.

  NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned.

  The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio plan to hold an emergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration.”

Eric Garner’s Daughter Is Asked If Her Father’s Death Is A ‘Black and White’ Issue – You’ll LOVE Her Response!

 

 

 

 

 

” Eric Garner’s daughter appeared on CNN to discuss the death of her father. Peppered with questions, it’s clear that reporters have already made up their mind on what happened in this case, and are on the same side as Rev. Al Sharpton and the race baiters.

  But when the daughter was asked if it was a racial issue, she said it isn’t, and is instead a “national crisis.”

  Even when pressed further for clarification, Erica Garner replied, “I really doubt it. It was about the officer’s pride. It was about my father being 6’4″ and 350 pounds and he wants to be the top cop that brings a big man down.” “

Eric Garner Could Spark American Spring

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The violent death of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia set off the Arab Spring. Could the killing of Eric Garner lead to a springtime of police reform – and regulatory reform — in the United States?

  Bouazizi was a street vendor, selling fruits and vegetables from a cart. He aspired to buy a pickup truck to expand his business. But, as property rights reformer Hernando de Soto wrote in the Wall Street Journal, “to get a loan to buy the truck, he needed collateral — and since the assets he held weren’t legally recorded or had murky titles, he didn’t qualify.”

  Meanwhile, de Soto notes, “government inspectors made Bouazizi’s life miserable, shaking him down for bribes when he couldn’t produce licenses that were (by design) virtually unobtainable. He tired of the abuse. The day he killed himself, inspectors had come to seize his merchandise and his electronic scale for weighing goods. A tussle began. One municipal inspector, a woman, slapped Bouazizi across the face. That humiliation, along with the confiscation of just $225 worth of his wares, is said to have led the young man to take his own life.”

  Bouazizi was a poor man trying to engage in commerce to make a better life. His brother Salem told de Soto the meaning of Bouazizi’s death: “He believed the poor had the right to buy and sell.”

  It was a story that resonated across the Arab world – a government that stifled freedom and enterprise, unaccountable bureaucracy, arbitrary enforcement, official contempt for citizens, a man who just couldn’t take it any more.

  Eric Garner’s story is surprisingly similar. He had been arrested more than 30 times, for such crimes as marijuana possession and driving without a license, and most often for selling untaxed cigarettes on the street.

  Why sell untaxed cigarettes? Because New York has the country’s highest cigarette taxes, $4.35 a pack for New York State and another $1.50 for the city. A pack of cigarettes can cost $14 in New York City, two and a half times as much as in Virginia . So a lively black market has sprung up. Buy cigarettes at retail in Virginia or North Carolina, sell them at a big markup in New York, and you can still undercut the price of legal, taxed cigarettes.

  Patrick Fleenor reported in a 2003 study for the Cato Institute that New York’s cigarette taxes had created a thriving black market, with rising levels of street crime, turf wars and increasing organized crime. He found that from 1990 to 2002, as the city and state repeatedly raised taxes, New York’s sales of taxed cigarettes relative to the national average plummeted. But reported smoking rates fell only slightly, in line with national trends. Obviously a lot of New York smokers were getting their fix from the black market.

  A 2013 study by the Mackinac Center found, not surprisingly, that New York had the highest rate of cigarette smuggling, totaling 61% of the state’s cigarette sales. “

Akai Gurley: Black Man Shot And Killed By Police, Stepfather Angry At Accident

 

 

 

 

 

” Mr. Akai Gurley, a 28-year-old black man from Brooklyn, was shot and killed this week by a new police officer in what is being called an “unfortunate tragedy.” Yet Gurley’s stepfather is understandably angry about the accident, saying he is “p***** off,” and the New York community at large also seems full of unrest over the situation. Canada Journal News shares the latest on this breaking story this Saturday, November 22, 2014.

  While leaving a housing complex, Akai Gurley was said to be fatally shot. He was unarmed and involved in no criminal activity at the time, confirms the report. It seems in this sad case that the black man was killed by a rookie cop for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but not everyone is so sure. Gurley was leaving the Brooklyn apartment with his girlfriend by his side; this particular housing area where the accident occurred is known for its high crime rate.”

” Last month, nearly half a dozen police officers beat up Santiago Hernandez, according to Hernandez, who told a local ABC affiliate police asked and received permission to frisk him but got upset when he asked them after being found not to be carrying contraband what the stop was all about. That’s when Hernandez says police tried to arrest him, and then beat him “like a gang.” Via ABC 7:

[The officer] was telling me to put my hands behind my back, but ‘I’m like trying to understand what are you are arresting me for. Can you please tell me?'” Hernandez said.

Moments later, half-a-dozen officers arrived and appeared to pile-on. Hernandez said he was punched, kicked, beaten with nightsticks, and blasted with pepper spray. “

Staten Island Man Dies After NYPD Cop Puts Him In Chokehold

 

 

 

 

” A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

“ I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

 Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

“ When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.”

NYPD Puts 14-Year-Old Boy’s Head Through A Window After ‘Stop And Frisk’

 

 

” Javier Payne defines being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The 14-year-old was hanging out in front of the Hookah Shop at 11:00 pm this past Saturday night when two NYPD officers decided to come up to him and a 13-year-old friend for a routine “stop and frisk”. This is a routine yet extremely controversial procedure where New York City police are free to stop anyone at any time for no reason and frisk them for weapons. Payne was frisked after he had an altercation with an older man on the street. That is when the incident got ugly.

  Witnesses say the police put Javier Payne in handcuffs and then threw him through the Hookah Shop’s plate glass window.

  Payne was considered under arrest at that point, and despite being injured and bleeding from just going through a plate glass window, the police wouldn’t even remove his handcuffs. They did call the ambulance squad so Payne wouldn’t bleed to death on the street, but they neglected to tell them that Payne was underage or suffering from critical injuries which would have necessitated the ambulance getting to the scene faster.”

NYPD’s Twitter Photo Contest Backfires With Images Of Aggressive Police Force

” The New York Police Department attempted to harness Twitter to drum up support today, but things haven’t exactly gone as planned. Earlier today, the official NYPD Twitter account asked followers to tweet photos of themselves with NYC police officers under the hashtag #myNYPD — but so far, many users have jumped on that hashtag to flood it with images of police aggressively apprehending apparent suspects. So far, these are hardly the friendly images the NYPD was hoping for.”

 

 

 

#myNYPD2

 

 

 

” While it’s hard to say if the force used in many of the pictures tagged with the #myNYPD hashtag is justified or not, the overall sentiment is clearly one in defense of citizens against an overly brutal police presence. Either way, there’s little doubt that the anti-police co-opting of the #myNYPD hashtag is picking up mainstream attention — it’s one of the top trending items on Twitter right now.”

N.Y. Search Warrant Case Shows Why We Need The Exclusionary Rule

 

 

210322_640x480

 

 

 

” The New York Post and the head of a New York City police union are upset that an accused drug dealer with a prior record may walk due to “a technicality.”

  Judge Jack Weinstein voided evidence against Shakeel “Blam” Wiggins last week because an NYPD cop didn’t properly fill out a search-warrant application that turned up the weapon as well as a handgun and a cocaine cache last September, court papers say.

  The ruling will likely allow Wiggins, a prior felon, to walk . . .

“ New York City police officers put their lives on the line to get these illegal weapons off the street,” Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association boss Patrick Lynch said of the ruling. “There are some technicalities — like if the premise is a single- or multiple-family dwelling — that are so insignificant that suppressing the evidence actually subverts justice and public safety.”

Lynch’s line of thinking is a direct reflection of the way law enforcement in general views the public and our rights.

” So what was that technicality? The cop who filled out the search warrant didn’t specify which unit in a multi-family housing unit was to be searched. Consequently, the cops raided the wrong residence, which caused them to kick down the door and terrorize an innocent family. Someone could have been killed. It’s happened before. Hell, it’s happened before in New York.

  The requirement that the location on a search warrant be specific isn’t “a technicality.” “

NYPD Accused Of Excessive Force In Arrest That Left Teen A Quadriplegic

 

 

police_brutality

 

 

” Karen Fludd wants to know the truth about how her 17-year-old son became a quadriplegic and eventually died after NYPD officers stopped him for fare-beating one night last May.

  The Red Hook mother said she has received very little information about what transpired — but what she does know is her son’s version of events involves accusations of excessive force and widely diverges from the vague account police gave her.

  The police told her that on May 5, 2013, her son, Deion Fludd, was spotted squeezing through a turnstile at the Rockaway Avenue station in Brownsville with his girlfriend on a single MetroCard swipe. When officers approached them, Fludd ran onto the C train tracks, the teen’s mother said she was told by police.

  Karen Fludd, 48, said police told her that after her son ran, a subway train clipped him. The crash fractured his skull and left him with two spinal fractures.

  But before he died from his injuries on July 12, 2013, Deion gave his mother a blow-by-blow account that didn’t involve a subway train.

“ We asked him if he got hit by a train. He immediately said ‘no,’” Karen recalled her son telling her at Kings County Hospital, where he was treated for nearly two months. “He was very adamant that he did not get hit by a train.”

  Karen said Deion told her he did flee police when the officers tried to arrest him. He ran the length of the subway platform as officers followed him and then bounded onto the C line tracks, running to the platform at the next station at Ralph Avenue.

  There, an officer caught him and hit him on the back of the head with a flashlight, according to Deion’s account.

  Deion told his mom that officers then held him down with their feet on his back as he struggled until his voice suddenly stopped working.

“ They said, ‘Oh, you gonna be running? We are going to make sure your ass don’t run again,’” Deion recalled the officers telling him, according to Karen. “

Homeland Security’s Heavily Armed East Williamsburg Raid ‘Terrorized And Confused’ Residents

 

 

 

” A number of East Williamsburg and Bushwick residents were surprised by a combined federal and NYPD raid on Devoe Street early Sunday morning. Some were disturbed by a loud, low-flying helicopter, while others were simply stopped from going home because the street was blocked off.

  Witnesses spotted a big Department of Homeland Security truck as well as DHS agents toting machine guns as they raided 221 Devoe Street. The NYPD was also involved, and one officer told a resident that the bust turned up “kilos of heroin.” (Apparently the drugs may have been from out of the country, hence DHS.)

  A resident in a neighboring building told us that he and his partner “were utterly confused and frankly terrorized…I literally had a flashlight-gun pointed at me from a sniper on top of the black armored truck the first time I opened our window to see what was going on.” “

 

     Apparently every crime is now a matter of national security . The justification for Federal stormtroopers to come your way is anything that they say it is , like the “drugs came from outside the country” . There’s a surprise , last we knew  opium was not a domestic cash crop … Just another flimsy excuse for the Feds to usurp state and local authority . 

  According to the Homeland Security website their responsibilities include :

 

” HSI investigates immigration crime, human rights violations and human smuggling, smuggling of narcotics, weapons and other types of contraband, financial crimes, cybercrime and export enforcement issues.”

 

    We know that they are not doing anything to interfere with the flow of illegal immigration , human smuggling or drug smuggling , seeing as how the Border Patrol has been ordered to “run away” from those folks crossing the border and drug mules . Their sole purpose then , would seem to be to terrorize the legal populace and create a climate of submission .

More Retired NY Firefighters, Cops Arrested In Pension Fraud Probe

 

 

 

 

” A second wave of retired New York firefighters and police was arrested on Tuesday on disability fraud charges tied to a September 11 pension fraud, said a source involved in the investigation.

  A massive ongoing investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance’s office had, in January, led to disability fraud charges against 106 suspects80 of them retired New York cops and firefighters – with some accused of falsely claiming to have been traumatized by the September 11, 2001 attacks on the city.

  On Tuesday, authorities rounded up 28 suspects, including 16 more retired police officers, four former firefighters, and a retired New York City Department of Corrections employee, the source told Reuters.

  Vance said the total amount stolen from taxpayers could reach $400 million.”

 

Everywhere we look these days we cannot help but be assaulted with stories of public employees abusing the public trust . The problem worsens daily and will continue to do so as long as authority is in the ascendency . Power corrupts , the more power the more corrupt both in quantity and quality .

      We can’t escape human nature and even the most rudimentary understanding of the human animal confirms to the citizenry that the more powerful any individual or organization of individuals becomes the more likely that entity is to become corrupted and the more impact that corruption will have on our day to day lives .

NYPD Cops Breaks Adolescent Leg, Sexually Assaults Mom

 

” A Brooklyn mother has filed a lawsuit against the New York Police Department, claiming an officer sexually assaulted her and broke the leg of her 10-year-old son.

  According to court records, obtained exclusively by the New York Daily News, Krystle Silvera was tending to her 5-year-old daughter on the morning of January 30th when police from the 63rd Precinct and the Warrants Division came knocking on her apartment door looking for an ex-boyfriend of hers.

  Silvera’s mother who opened the door with 10-year-old, Courtney not far behind, began to videotape the entering of officers inside the apartment. Soon after Krystle Silvera began to hear her son scream, ” You can’t do that! You’re hurting me! Don’t hit me!’” causing Silvera to run downstairs in her undergarments to see what was taking place. It was then, she claims she was pulled outside of her apartment and while restrained her pierced nipple was exposed.”

 

   Although this story doesn’t mention it , the Daily News states that the reason for the boy’s broken leg was “A Brooklyn cop kicked a 10-year-old boy in the shin, breaking his leg, as the child was recording him with his cell phone…”

 

 

 

 

 

Cop Brings Gun To A Snowball Fight Could Cost NYC $10 Million

” In February of 2010 off duty NYPD officer, Sgt. Adonis Ramirez, 34, after being hit by a snowball in the leg, drew his concealed weapon on a group of young men and ordered them to kneel against a fence. He now stands accused of false arrest and battery.

  Inconsistencies in his story have been revealed during his recent testimony in a $10 million dollar civil suit brought against the NYPD.

  In his initial report to officers Ramirez claimed that while walking, “he felt himself get struck on the back by multiple snowballs.” While testifying in court last Tuesday he admitted that it was only “one” snowball and that it struck him in the leg.”

 

 

Cop's Gun Vs Snowball

 

 

” He then went on to claim that he didn’t recall telling police that the young men had chased him, although he had stated in police reports that he feared for his “immediate safety”. Previously, Ramirez had claimed the group chased him down the street and threatened him while pelting him with multiple snowballs.

  The abuse of authority and lack of training exhibited in this case are stunning. Mr. Ramirez must have missed the memo that badges don’t grant extra rights. The militarization of the police across the US has seemingly created a pandemic of officers acting as though they are above the law they are sworn to uphold. Hopefully, Officer Ramirez, the NYPD, and the city of New York get the memo on this one.”
