Blurry Phone Video Shows Vallejo Cops Shoot Black Man 20x in Parking Lot: Cops Claim They Were in Danger when Aspiring Rapper Suddenly Woke Up & Reached for a Gun but Decline to Release Bodycam

From [HERE] and [HERE] A blurry cell phone video uploaded on YouTube shows the moment six Vallejo police officers shot and killed a local rapper who passed out behind the wheel of a vehicle in a Taco Bell drive-through line on Feb. 9., according to a witness.

The video starts with Rolly Gabun, of Vallejo, filming the Taco Bell scene from inside his car, saying aloud there were roughly seven police officers blocking the drive-through on Admiral Callaghan Lane. He records the flashing red and blue patrol lights.

When he wonders aloud why the man behind the wheel — later identified as Willie McCoy — doesn’t step out of the vehicle, police officers can be heard repeatedly shouting “put your hands up” before a barrage of gunfire rings out.

After more than 12 bullets are fired, officers can be heard demanding, “let me see your hands” and “put your hands up.”

McCoy, 21, of Vallejo, died at the scene.

“If the guy had a gun on his lap but woke up suddenly of course he would reach for it because he was probably shocked,” Gabun said. “Like it’s brutality at its finest because even after shooting him so many times they still gave commands!”

An officer can be heard telling dispatch soon after the shooting, “All officers are OK. He’s moving, but not responsive” before shouting to McCoy “show me your hands,” according to dispatch audio from Vallejo Police Department.

Authorities in Vallejo responded to the fast-food restaurant about 10:40 p.m. Saturday after employees reported seeing a man “slumped over” in the driver’s seat of a silver Mercedes-Benz, police said.

The call began as a welfare check, but as officers approached the car, they saw a gun in the man’s lap, police said. Police said McCoy unresponsive. The car was locked, and the transmission was in drive, officials said. [MORE]

After some time, the man moved, and officers told him to keep his hands visible, police said. But authorities said he reached for the gun and officers, fearing for their safety, fired their weapons.

They later said the gun was a fully loaded 40 caliber semi-automatic handgun with an extended magazine. After several more officers arrived as back-up, they opened fire when, they said, McCoy awoke and reached for the gun.

Police in Vallejo, California, said in a news release that the six officers shot "multiple rounds" at the drivein the span of four seconds Saturday night in a Taco Bell parking lot. It's unclear how many bullets struck McCoy, but his family said they believe at least 20 may have hit his car based on the number of holes that witnesses counted at the scene.

"It seems like an execution," David Harrison, McCoy's cousin and manager, said Wednesday. "It looks like my baby cousin was executed by a firing squad."

Officials also declined further comment about any plans to release video from the incident and questions regarding police protocol. The department's police union did not immediately respond to an email Wednesday.

Harrison said he's not happy about a lack of information that has come out about his cousin's death and is awaiting the results of an autopsy and toxicology report.

"It doesn't take six officers to pump bullets through a car that's not going anywhere," he said.

A welfare check is also known as the community caretaking exception to the 4th Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches, seizures and arrests. The idea behind community caretaking is that police do not always function as law enforcement officials investigating and ferreting out wrongdoing, but sometimes may act as community caretakers designed to prevent harm in emergency situations.

Unwanted White Minnesota Cop Doesn't Serve Black People & Can't be Fired: Judge Re-Instates Public Ruler who Assaulted a Somali Teen & Told Him to Get Out the Park

From [HERE] and [HERE] In a ruling with broad implications for police discipline, the Minnesota Supreme Court has rejected Richfield's efforts to fire an officer who struck a Black teenager, saying the city must comply with an arbitrator who ruled in favor of the officer.

Richfield Police Officer Nate Kinsey was fired in 2016, about six months after he was caught on video striking a young Somali man on the back of the head and swearing at him, an incident denounced by the Somali Human Rights Commission. The teen was unarmed and not threatening the cop.

In the cellphone video on Twitter, an officer tells a 19-year-old to leave Adams Hill Park. The teen asks him why can't I be in a public park? Then the white officer mushes his face and pushes him.

Kinsey failed to report the use of force, as the police department required. The arbitrator argued Kinsey’s failure to report the behavior was only a “lapse in judgement.”

The Supreme Court decision, released Wednesday morning, was a closely watched test of the authority of labor arbitrators, who are held under Minnesota law to be the final judges of law and fact in disputes covered by many collective bargaining agreements.

Sean Gormley, executive director of Law Enforcement Labor Services Inc., the state's largest law enforcement union and the one representing Kinsey, praised the ruling.

"Binding arbitration is a pillar of collective bargaining; it is imperative that employers and unions respect and abide by these decisions, even when the outcome is unfavorable to one side or the other," Gormley said in a statement.

Kinsey, 43, of Cottage Grove, did not return a call seeking comment; a union spokesman said he intends to return to work as a police officer.

In her 10-page decision, Justice Anne K. McKeig [in photo] rejected the argument that Richfield's "public policy" interests in police discipline allowed it to override the arbitrator, who found that Kinsey's use of force was not excessive.

"No doubt many observers would find Kinsey's actions disturbing," McKeig wrote. "But state statute requires arbitration, and the City's contract with the Union gives the arbitrator the authority to decide what constitutes just cause for termination. Applying the statute and the language in the contract, and deferring to the facts as found by the arbitrator, we reverse the decision of the court of appeals."

Justice Anne K. McKeig.jpg

The dispute over Kinsey's firing arose at a time of public outrage over police use of excessive force on the job and concern over a perceived lack of accountability for police actions. The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association weighed in on Richfield's side as the case moved through the courts, denouncing the arbitration system as "broken" with respect to disciplining officers.

Andy Skoogman, head of the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association, said local leaders need greater authority to address disciplinary problems.

"We believe the state's highest court missed a unique opportunity to help law enforcement leaders across Minnesota improve the policing profession," Skoogman said. "Had the Supreme Court upheld the Minnesota Appeals Court ruling that the city was justified in its termination of officer Nate Kinsey, municipal leaders would have more leeway to terminate employees who fail to follow policy and display a pattern of disciplinary problems."

Richfield officials said Kinsey will undertake a "rigorous retraining program," including a comprehensive review of department polices on use of force and other topics and training on implicit bias.

Kinsey must also get his Minnesota peace officer's license reinstated by the Minnesota Peace Officer Standards and Training Board.

All White Jury Mocks Black Man with a One Dollar ($1 ) Award: White Rochester Cops Knocked Him Out of his Wheelchair & Assaulted Him at a Bus Stop b/c He Cursed at Them & Disturbed Their Peace

benny+warr.jpg

From [HERE] Last week a federal jury mostly exonerated three white Rochester police officers involved in a highly publicized arrest six years ago of a Black man in a wheelchair.

Jurors found that the man, Benny Warr, was not wrongfully arrested and that two of the officers — Joseph Ferrigno and Mitchell Stewart — did not use excessive force.

The jury did conclude that the third officer, Anthony Liberatore, used excessive force in arresting Warr, but awarded Warr just $1 in what are known as nominal damages.

The phrase means jurors felt a legal wrong occurred but found no harm was done.

At the same time, the jury declined to award compensatory damages but voted to award punitive damages in the amount of $0, mocking him.

According to journalist Donna Jackel who observed the trial, the jury was all white. The 8 person jury was composed of seven women and one man.

Benny Warr, an African American with one functional leg, sued three members of the Rochester Police Department, the city of Rochester and a former police chief for wrongful arrest and excessive force.

Warr, who was 52 when the incident occurred on May 1, 2013, testified that he did not resist police, that he was quietly waiting for a bus, eating an ice cream, when arrested. (A police video shows him buying ice cream.) 

Warr testified that Officers Joseph Ferrigno and Anthony Liberatore maced him, threw him to the ground and struck him after he responded to an order to move by telling them he was just waiting for a bus. He said he lay in a fetal position while the officers “allegedly” beat him.

 A witnesses filmed a portion of the incident on her cell phone. It reveals that Liberatore and Ferrigno knocked Warr’s motorized wheelchair to the sidewalk, with him still in it. A second video, filmed by a revolving police surveillance camera, shows Liberatore bashing his right elbow into Warr’s head as the disabled man lay on the ground. (Both videos are posted on Youtube.)

“I thought they were going to kill me,” Warr told a reporter.

It took an ambulance approximately 25 minutes to arrive to transport Warr to the hospital. In federal court, a doctor testified Warr sustained three broken ribs that day.

Ferrigno and Liberatore testified Warr resisted their attempts to clear the corner, swore at them and swung his arms at them. Police officials said the officers were “clearing the block,” an action intended to prevent residents from congregating on street corners, so as to discourage customers from entering local businesses. 

Warr's attorney, Charles Burkwit, called the outcome "an inconsistent verdict."

"Obviously we were all in shock," Burkwit said. "What's the point of a making a punitive damages finding if you're not going to award any money?"

Warr brought his lawsuit against the officers, the city of Rochester and former Police Chief James Sheppard in 2013, about four months after his arrest. The allegations that Sheppard improperly supervised officers were dismissed at trial.

Police officers contended that Warr punched and fought them as they tried to arrest him for allegedly causing a scene by shouting profanities. Warr maintained that he did not resist, that he was quietly waiting for a bus when arrested, and that he was in a fetal position when allegedly beaten.

"While, the city agrees with this decision, I cannot comment further on this matter in the interest of protecting our taxpayers in the event of potential appeals,"  Corporation Counsel Tim Curtin said in a statement in which he also thanked the jury and city's legal team.

Burkwit said Tuesday that the jury seemed to ignore evidence that Warr suffered from post-traumatic stress after the incident. He also contended that "inflammatory" statements from the city's legal team, including mentioning that Warr had once been jailed despite a judge's ruling that the information not be mentioned at trial, may have influenced the jury.

"There was a lot of prejudicial and inflammatory information, which I think as a whole prejudiced Mr. Warr," Burkwit said.

Testimony at trial showed that Warr had previously suffered from chronic pain, and had also battled drug addiction, though, records indicated, he has been clean for years. He has worn a prosthesis on one leg since childhood.

Warr's arrest and the events that preceded it were caught on cellphone cameras and widely shared on social media, but there were strikingly different interpretations of what the video showed. A city Blue Light camera also captured some of the confrontation.

In his closing arguments last week, Burkwit said the video supported Warr's story and proved that the police had lied in their claims about the incident.

Meanwhile, city attorney Spencer Ash told jurors, "This video footage is an ally of ours," in his summation.

Warr resolved the criminal charges against him by agreeing to what is known as an "adjournment in contemplation of dismissal," which allows for charges to be dismissed after six months if there are no other charges during that stretch.

A police review board exonerated the officers of misconduct, a decision upheld at the time by Sheppard. 

However, Burkwit said, the jury's finding that Liberatore used excessive force showed the lapses in the city review, which determined just the opposite. 

"There's something to be said that the jury agreed ... that the city brushed this under the rug," he said.

Burkwit said he planned to ask the court to set aside the verdict.

"An appeal is always an option as well," he said. "Due to the shocking nature of the award, at this point we need to let a little time go by and let the court address the verdict."

Alabama’s Failure to Respond to Prison Crisis Claims Another Life: After an Assault Left a Black Man Paralyzed with Brain Injury He Had No Access to Therapeutic Care in Uncivilized Facility

From [EJI] On Sunday, the third incarcerated Alabama homicide victim in the last six weeks died from complications and inadequate medical care. This marks the 22nd homicide within Alabama prisons in the last two years and the 12th murder since 2018, a staggering homicide rate that is 10 times the national average. No significant reforms have been implemented to improve safety in the state's prisons during this time period and a serious crisis continues.

Jamie Prim, age 34, died Sunday due to complications from a serious assault at Fountain Correctional Facility in June 2018 that left him with a traumatic brain injury and paralysis. Mr. Prim was incarcerated for nonviolent offenses and was granted parole on November 29, 2018, to live under the care of his sister in Baldwin County. Mr. Prim died before the Alabama Department of Corrections could process his release.  

In the immediate aftermath of his assault at Fountain, doctors were hopeful that he could avoid permanent paralysis and regain motor function with physical therapy. However, Mr. Prim – who was classified for a minimum custody work release facility – was sent to St. Clair Correctional Facility, where EJI filed a class action lawsuit in 2014 following the failure of the Alabama Department of Corrections to protect men at the prison.  

At St. Clair, Mr. Prim had no access to therapeutic care and his condition worsened. He sustained further injuries to his brain after allegedly falling out of a bed at the prison, developed large bed sores, and had fluid in his lungs. Mr. Prim was admitted to Brookwood Hospital as a result of these complications and died there on February 10, 2019.

In early December, EJI released a report describing Alabama's prisons as the deadliest in the nation. Since then, prison violence and inaction from department leadership has claimed the lives of at least three more men: Jamie Prim, Terrence Andrews, and John David Teague.  

On December 29, 2018, Terrence Andrews was killed at St. Clair. Mr. Andrews had been transferred to St. Clair shortly before his death and was killed in a housing area known to have the most frequent and serious incidents of violence at the prison. 

On January 7, 2019, John David Teague was killed at Staton Correctional Facility. Mr. Teague was found unresponsive at 3:30 a.m. with multiple stab wounds and died from his injuries. 

The rate of prison homicides in Alabama exceeds 50 homicides per 100,000 people incarcerated – more than 10 times the national average from 2001 to 2014. No system-wide reforms, emergency response, or action has been implemented to disrupt lethal violence and improve security within Alabama's prisons.

The deaths of Jamie Prim, Terrence Andrews, and John David Teague make clear that Alabama's prison system is in crisis. The failure of department leadership and elected officials to urgently respond to this crisis puts the lives of incarcerated people and prison staff, and public safety, at serious risk.

All White Wisconsin GOP Forces Colin Kaepernick's Name Off Black History Resolution [that includes Condi Rice] to Create a Feel Good Black Historiography in Service of White Domination & Authority

Jim Steineke.jpg

From [HERE] and [HERE] For the second time in as many years, Wisconsin lawmakers clashed on party lines over how to honor Black History Month as some Republicans objected to a resolution offered by the Legislature's Black Caucus, which is composed of only Democrats. 

There are no African-American Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature. 

The state Assembly passed a resolution Tuesday to honor prominent black Americans during Black History Month in February — but only after Republicans blocked it until black Democratic lawmakers agreed to remove the name of quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Democratic Rep. David Crowley of Milwaukee, who authored the resolution, called the episode "a textbook example of white privilege" and a "slap in the face."

"Many of these people that you don’t agree with will still be in the history books that your children and grandchildren will be reading," Crowley said on the Assembly floor.

Kaepernick, who was born in Milwaukee and lived in Fond du Lac as a young child, launched protests against racial inequality and police brutality by sitting on the bench during the national anthem before an NFL preseason game in 2016 and then began kneeling in 2016 during the national anthem to protest a system of injustice aka racism/white supremacy.

He is one of more than two dozen prominent black Americans proposed by the Legislature's black lawmakers to be honored during February, including former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and baseball giant Reggie Jackson.

Other names proposed to be honored on Tuesday included Lucien H. Palmer, Wisconsin's first black legislator; Carolyn Stanford Taylor, Wisconsin's first black Superintendent of Public Instruction; Foundation for Black Women's Wellness founder Lisa Peyton-Caire and Beloit native and NFL coach Jim Caldwell.

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke of Kaukauna [racist suspect in photo] said Republicans wouldn't support the resolution that included Kaepernick "for obvious reasons," referring to protests during the national anthem.

Democratic Rep. LaKeshia Myers of Milwaukee said Kaepernick "decided to take on ownership of a problem that he saw, which was police brutality."

"Whether you dislike the method that he used, understand that it is a part of America’s DNA — not just African-Americans' protest," said Myers, who was the lone vote against the resolution. 

Appeals Court Upholds Release of Grand Jury Record in the 1946 "Moore's Ford Lynching" Case- Mass Murders of 2 Black Couples by a White Mob, No One Ever Charged

From [HERE] The US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled on Monday that the District Court for the Middle District of Georgia appropriately ordered the release of grand jury records related to the Moore’s Ford Lynching of 1946.

The Moore’s Ford Lynching is considered to be the “last” mass lynching in American history. The Moore’s Ford Lynchings, also known as the 1946 Georgia lynching, refers to the July 25, 1946 mass murders by a white mob of four young African Americans: two married couples — George W. and Mae Murray Dorsey, and Roger and Dorothy Malcom — in Walton County. The couples were dragged from their cars and shot multiple times by a crowd of people. A grand jury was convened in 1946, which included 16 days of witness testimony. However, no one was charged for the murders.

Author Anthony Pitch had petitioned the court to release the grand jury records held at the National Archives in Washington, DC, to help with a book Pitch is writing on the event. The government objected to the release, arguing the court did not have the authority to do so, and historical significance is not sufficient to permit disclosure.

The appeals court found that a district court has an inherit authority to disclose grand jury records when “exceptional circumstances” exist. The exceptional circumstance must result in the need for disclosure exceeding the public interest in secrecy. The court looked at a list of nine factors that can be used for historically significant events to determine if an exceptional circumstance exists.

No defendant in the Moore’s Ford grand jury objected to the disclosure. The disclosure is also sought for a “legitimate, scholarly purpose.” The Moore’s Ford Lynching was also determined to have historical significance due to the ties to the national civil rights movements and ongoing media interest in the event. Due to the amount of time that has passed, the court found that “[t]here is no indication that any witnesses, suspects, or their immediate family members are alive to be intimidated, persecuted, or arrested.”

The district court is required to determine if any portions of the grand jury records should be redacted or omitted.

Harrison said the mob took the four victims from his car as he was driving to his farm. [MORE]

Tradition says that the murders were committed on Moore's Ford Bridge in Walton and Oconee counties between Monroe and Watkinsville, and they are often referred to as the Moore's Ford lynchings. But the four victims were shot and killed on a dirt road in Walton County near the bridge.

The case attracted national attention and catalyzed large protests in Washington, DC and New York City. President Harry S. Truman created the President's Committee on Civil Rights and his administration introduced anti-lynching legislation in Congress, but could not get it past the Southern Democratic block. The FBI investigated in 1946 but was unable to discover sufficient evidence for the US District Attorney to prosecute anyone. Publicity about the case in the 1990s led to a new investigation starting in 2000 by the FBI and the state. The state of Georgia and the FBI finally closed their cases in December 2017, unable to prosecute any suspect.[1]

The lynching victims have been commemorated by a community memorial service in 1998 and a state highway marker placed in 1999 at the site of the attack in what is the first official recognition of a lynching in the state of Georgia. According to the 2015 report by the Equal Justice Initiative on lynchings in the Southern United States, Georgia has the second-highest number of documented lynchings.

White LA Sheriff Lee Baca Loses Appeal of His Conviction for Lying to Feds to Conceal “Savage" Rights Violations at the Jail but Remains Free b/c Different Legal & Moral Standards Apply to Cops

lee baca 3.jpg

From [HERE] An appeals court upheld the conviction of former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca on Monday, clearing the way for the once powerful but now ailing law enforcement figure to spend years in prison for obstructing justice and lying to federal authorities.

Baca, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, faces a three-year prison sentence after a jury found he helped orchestrate a scheme to interfere with an FBI investigation into abuses in county jails and later lied to prosecutors about his role.

Attorneys for Baca, 76, appealed the 2017 verdict, arguing it had been tainted by rulings U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson had made during the trial and so should be reversed. Among several alleged errors, they focused on Anderson’s decision to bar the jury from hearing testimony about Baca’s illness and about a conversation he had with an aide about the FBI’s investigation. Either piece of information, the defense team said, could have helped sway the jury in Baca’s favor.

But the three-judge panel from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected those claims in a seven-page decision, finding the trial was fair and the conviction legally sound.

Calling the case that prosecutors had mounted “fair and thorough,” U.S. Atty. Nick Hanna said in a statement the ruling “confirms the principle that no one is above the law.”

“Instead of cooperating with a federal investigation that ultimately was concerned about improving conditions in the county jails, Mr. Baca chose to obstruct and then lie to federal authorities,” Hanna said.

lee baca 4.jpg

The ACLU has compiled an extensive report [“Cruel and Usual Punishment: How a Savage Gang of Deputies Controls LA County Jails“] documenting the unprecedented levels of prisoner abuse and concluding "The long-standing and pervasive culture of deputy hyper-violence in Los Angeles County jails — a culture apparently condoned at the highest levels — cries out for swift and thorough investigation and intervention by the federal government." The abuse includes rape of inmates by police officers. In early 2012, the ACLU filed suit to prevent Baca from continuing in his position.

According to the report:

“To be an inmate in the Los Angeles County jails is to fear deputy attacks. In the past year, deputies have assaulted scores of non-resisting inmates, according to reports from jail chaplains, civilians, and inmates. Deputies have attacked inmates for complaining about property missing from their cells.1 They have beaten inmates for asking for medical treatment,2 for the nature of their alleged offenses,3 and for the color of their skin.4 They have beaten inmates in wheelchairs.5 They have beaten an inmate, paraded him naked down a jail module, and placed him in a cell to be sexually assaulted.6 Many attacks are unprovoked. Nearly all go unpunished: these acts of violence are covered up by a department that refuses to acknowledge the pervasiveness of deputy violence in the jail system.

Deputies act with such impunity that in the past year even civilians have begun coming forward with eyewitness accounts of deputies beating non-resisting inmates in the jails.7 These civilian accounts support the seventy inmate declarations describing deputy-on-inmate beatings and deputy-instigated inmate-on-inmate violence and deputy threats of assaults against inmates that the ACLU Foundation of Southern California (ACLU/SC) has collected in the past year, as well as the myriad inmate declarations the ACLU/SC has collected over the years.

The violence that takes place in the Los Angeles County jails is far from normal. These are not average jails with isolated or sporadic incidents of deputy misbehavior. Thomas Parker, a former FBI Agent and Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau’s Los Angeles Field Office, reviewed inmate, former inmate, chaplain and civilian declarations, reports, correspondence, media articles, and legal filings, and found: “Of all the jails I have had the occasion to visit, tour, or conduct investigations within, domestically and internationally, I have never experienced any facility exhibiting the volume and repetitive patterns of violence, misfeasance, and malfeasance impacting the Los Angeles County jail system. …”9 “There is at least a two decade history of corruption within the ranks of the Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department (LASD). In most of those cases, lower level deputies and civilian employees were prosecuted, but no one at the command level responsible for those employees appears to have been held accountable and appropriately punished for failure to properly supervise and manage their subordinate personnel and resources. In my opinion, this has provided the ‘seedbed’ for continued lax supervision, violence, and corruption within LASD and the county jails it administers,” Mr. Parker concluded.” [MORE]

On February 10, 2016, Baca pled guilty to a single count of lying during a federal investigation into civil rights violations at the county jail.[13] The investigation into brutality and corruption by sheriff's deputies already resulted in convictions and guilty pleas by a number of lower-ranking officers, including a retired sheriff's captain.[13] Baca pleaded guilty to "lying twice about his involvement in hiding a jail inmate from FBI investigators" and to knowing that his subordinates had threatened an FBI special agent investigating Baca's department.

Shortly after Lee Baca pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice, the attorney general decided to reopen and investigate another inmate abuse case involving Mitrice Richardson, a young black woman who was released in middle of the night without any means of returning home safely, who was found months later deceased not far from Malibu Sheriff station.[14] On April 6, 2016, his former undersheriff, Paul Tanaka, was convicted on conspiracy and obstruction of justice charges by a federal jury related to the same prison abuses.[15]

Below is a summary of the Lee Baca case from the U.S. Attorney's office:

During the course of the investigation that was being conducted by the FBI, the U.S. Attorney's Office and a federal grand jury, a sheriff's deputy assigned to the Men's Central Jail accepted a bribe to smuggle a cellphone into the facility. The phone was delivered to an inmate who was working as an FBI informant. Jail officials later discovered the phone, linked it to the FBI and determined that the inmate was an informant. This led to a monthlong scheme to obstruct the investigation, which included members of the conspiracy concealing the informant from the FBI, the United States Marshals Service and the grand jury. Members of the conspiracy also engaged in witness tampering and harassing the FBI agent.

— U.S. Attorney's office

With only a few longshot options remaining, Baca’s attorney, Nathan Hochman, said he plans to ask for another hearing in front of a larger panel of judges from the 9th Circuit. The court, however, grants only a small number of these rehearings each year. If Baca’s request is denied or he loses again, he could ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his case.

Baca is expected to remain out of prison at least until the appeals court decides whether to grant him a second hearing [most mere mortals would be in jail serving their sentence during their appeal. Baca is free because different standards of morality, legality and accountability apply to cops who are representatives of authority - so long as you believe in such things]. If it declines to do so, the case would likely be sent back to Anderson, who could then order Baca to begin his sentence.

According to Trump’s Leaked Schedule, the Puppetician President Spends 60% of his Time in “Executive Time," a Euphemism for Watching TV, Tweeting, Making Calls & Meeting with his Believers

trump clown guy.jpg

From [HuffPost] Despite a reportedly intense White House investigation to unmask the individual who spilled Donald Trump’s private daily schedules to the media, a defiant leaker has popped up again to reveal the president is still spending about half of his days in unstructured “executive time,” Axios reported.

Axios said last week that the president spent about 60 percent of his time — about 300 hours — in the three months since the midterm elections in “executive time,” according to copies of his leaked personal schedule.

Sources told Axios that the term is a euphemism for the time the president spends hanging out in his residence watching TV, tweeting, making phone calls and holding impromptu meetings.

The leak infuriated Trump and White House officials, who launched a hunt to find the person responsible, Politico reported. Now a leaker has provided another four days of the president’s schedules (Feb. 4-7) to Axios — revealing that Trump is still spending half of his days in “executive time.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump’s unstructured time, telling Axios after its first report that it has provided Trump a “creative environment” to help “make him the most productive president in modern history.”

Trump on Sunday insisted in a tweet that he’s working during that executive time. “When the term Executive Time is used, I am generally working, not relaxing,” Trump tweeted. “In fact, I probably work more hours than almost any past President.” He has to, he explained, because the country was “a mess” when he came to the White House.

The Turning Point USA (TPUSA) communications director and frequent Fox News guest is scheduled to do or has done a dozen GOP events since May 2018, and she has already received over $40,000 in speaking fees.

As BuzzFeed News reported, Owens claimed during a December launch event for Turning Point UK: "If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine. The problem is that he wanted -- he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German, everybody to look a different way. That's not -- to me, that’s not nationalism. … I have no problems with nationalism." Owens was condemned for the remarks after video from the event was recently publicized.

Despite her comments, the Boulder County Republicans in Colorado hosted Owens as the keynote speaker for its annual fundraising dinner on February 9.

Owens’ commentary about Hitler is the latest problem for TPUSA. As The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer wrote, “Last October, members of a Turning Point chapter in Florida were revealed to be sharing racist memes in a group chat. In 2017, the New Yorker reported that a high-ranking TPUSA member once wrote ‘I hate blacks.’ Owens has frequently clashed with other conservative personalities, including Fox News’ Tomi Lahren. Rapper Kanye West, whose endorsement rocketed Owens to fame, eventually distanced himself from her in October.”


This sambo negro fails to understand that the holocaust was an episode of white supremacy. According to Hitler, Jewish people were not white people- they were an inferior race, an alien threat to racial (white) purity and community. In Nazi Germany (1933-1945}, a genocidal imperative was declared when the Semite and gypsy populations were classified as non-white and therefore were deemed worthy of destruction. Indeed, the word Semite is derived from the Latin prefix "semi," which means half. Semites were the products of the genetic mixture produced when white Greek and Roman soldiers invaded Africa and raped African women, who of course were Black. Semite means the same as mulatto [non-white]. Thus Jews were considered to be half Black and half white, or colored people to Hitler. [MORE]

The terms anti-Semite and anti-Semitism most fundamentally refer to a destructive ideological, psychological and behavioral state of "anti-color" waged by people who classify themselves as white against those who are classified as non-white, even when those non-whites have lost much of their skin coloration in some instances.

According to Hitler, because Jews were semi or not pure or half-white, they therefore had to be destroyed.[MORE] and [MORE]


Owens has also attacked the #MeToo movement. She’s claimed that the movement has “turned sexual assault into a trend and simultaneously drowned out the voices of real rape victims— who deserve to be heard” and that #MeToo is evidence of “how vicious and cunning women can be when they feel scorned.”

Media Matters previously reported that conservative media personalities such as Jeanine Pirro, Pete Hegseth, and Sebastian Gorka have cashed in by touring the GOP speaking circuit.

The following are Republican events that Owens is scheduled to speak at or has spoken at since May 2018, along with her speaking fees in 2018. (The speaking fees are accessible by searching government campaign finance databases.)

  • Owens is scheduled to speak at a May 16 event for the Republican Committee of Lower Merion & Narberth in Pennsylvania.

  • Owens is scheduled to speak at a May 10 event for the Snohomish County Republican Party in Washington state.

  • Owens is scheduled to speak at a March 2 event for the Lincoln Reagan Gala Committee, which helps Republican organizations, in Virginia.  

  • Owens spoke at a February 9 event for the Boulder County Republicans in Colorado.

  • The Republican Committee of Chester County in Pennsylvania paid Owens $7,500 for speaking at an October 30, 2018, event.

  • The Hernando County Republican Executive Committee in Florida paid Owens $7,500 for speaking at a September 29, 2018, event.  

  • The Hawaii Republican Party paid Owens $7,500 for speaking at a September 20, 2018, event.

  • The Alabama Republican Executive Committee paid Owens $5,000 for speaking at an August 24, 2018, event.

  • The Stark County Republican Party in Ohio paid Owens $5,000 to speak at a July 30, 2018, event.

  • The Republican Party of Arkansas paid Owens $5,000 for speaking at a July 21, 2018, event.

  • Roger Allison’s unsuccessful congressional campaign in North Carolina paid Owens $7,043.80 for speaking at a July 20, 2018, event.

  • The Bridgeport Republican Town Committee in Connecticut paid Owens $1,000 for speaking at a May 24, 2018, event.

WORKING FOR WHITEY. From [WashPost] D.C. police and federal agents will work closely together this year in a crackdown on convicted felons illegally carrying guns in the city, a law enforcement strategy prompted by a steep increase in homicides in 2018, officials said Wednesday.

The new approach — in which U.S. authorities will play a greater role in investigating local gun-possession offenses in the District — will involve prosecuting many “felon-in-possession” defendants in federal court rather than D.C. Superior Court, officials said. That could result in longer prison terms in some cases.

Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) and U.S. Attorney Jessie K. Liu of the District, appearing at a news briefing Wednesday, praised the plan, which Bowser attributed to Liu.

“Today the U.S. attorney briefed me on a new strategy her office has launched that will take more illegal gun cases [to federal court], specifically cases where a previously convicted felon is . . . arrested and charged with illegally possessing a gun,” Bowser said.

“I support the U.S. attorney’s strategy and believe it will send a clear message that violence will not be tolerated in the District,” the mayor added.

Earlier this week, after officials outlined the strategy to The Washington Post, speaking on the condition of anonymity ahead of Wednesday’s announcement, the head of the American Civil Liberties Union in the District criticized it as “reactionary,” suggesting it would aggravate the problem of mass incarceration.

As Bowser spoke Wednesday, she seemed aware of the criticism, which had been echoed by others. She began her remarks by pointing out that last week, she and D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine announced a $6 million investment in the District’s workforce development and violence prevention efforts.

“We know that guns have a devastating effect on families, neighborhoods and our entire city,” she said. “Reducing this violence requires an approach that’s not just specific to law enforcement, but also focused on human services and the community. And together we know that we will address every aspect of the problem we are experiencing.”


Driven to please her masters desires she is oblivious to reality. Violent crime in the District is down overall. [MORE]. The elite white media makes much of the fact that the year 2018 ended with 160 homicides on the books —a 38 percent increase from the previous year. [MORE] However, such statistics are taken out of context: the DC murder rate hit historic lows in 2017 with only 116 homicides. Yet this is nothing compared to what it was; in 1991 there were 482 murders and 443 and 454 murders respectively in 1992 and 1993. These numbers are on a substantial downward decline in general. See Chart below.

But local racist suspect elites have white supremacy & Black inferiority to sell. As explained by Dr. Amos Wilson,

Black criminals function as a negative reference group vital to maintaining the White American self-image. The Black criminal is used to support the White American community's self-serving, self-justifying judgments of itself. White America's preoccupation with Black criminality betrays its own need for reassurance; betrays its own basic insecurity regarding its projected moral purity. Consequently, the higher the incidence of reported Black criminality, the more exceptionally righteous White America feels itself to be. The more righteous it feels itself to be the more intensely and guiltlessly it promulgates and justifies its domination and exploitation of African peoples at home and abroad. [MORE]


Liu said the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and other federal agencies “will be working closely” with D.C. police from start to finish on felon-in-possession cases.

She has previously described the shift and refocusing of federal law enforcement resources as a “homegrown” option that emerged in talks with D.C. authorities over how to combat escalating violence.

“This strategy will enable us to leverage local and federal law enforcement resources throughout the District from the ground level up,” she said Wednesday, “giving us an opportunity from the very start of a case to try to find out where these firearms are coming from, how they’re being used and what we can do to prevent further violence.”

In Superior Court, a defendant with a felony record who is convicted of illegal gun possession can be sentenced to up to 15 years, depending on the circumstances of the case. But many receive sentences in the one-to-three-year range, according to sentencing reports for D.C. Superior Court cases and attorneys.

Under the federal law dealing with felons in possession, defendants convicted in U.S. District Court are exposed to longer sentences, depending on the circumstances of their cases.

In 2018, there were 350 such gun cases filed in the District, but just 25 percent of them were charged as federal crimes. The city also recorded 160 homicides last year, an increase of about 40 percent over the 2017 total.

Asked whether the shift of cases to the federal court was meant to achieve longer prison terms, Bowser and Liu played down that aspect of the strategy. “Those cases will be prosecuted in federal court because we’re going to be working more closely with our federal partners, and that is typically where they bring their cases,” Liu said.

Bowser noted that case dockets are less crowded in federal court than in Superior Court.

“I think what we should be focused on is how quickly these cases can be brought, “ she said. “That protects the guilty and the not guilty. So the guilty are going to get their justice, and the not guilty are going to get a swift trial.”

Federal Ct Finds Alabama to be “Deliberately Indifferent" to the Mental Health of Prisoners in Isolation, in Violation of the 8th Amendment Prohibition Against Cruel & Unusual Punishment

judge myron thompson.jpg

From [HERE] and [HERE] A federal court ruled Monday that Alabama’s prison system fails to adequately evaluate the mental health of inmates during isolation in segregation cells. The ruling was the latest development in the lawsuit, Braggs v. Dunn, that the SPLC and the Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program (ADAP) filed in June 2014. 

The treatment of the inmates is unconstitutional and violates the Eighth Amendment, U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson wrote in a ruling that found the Alabama Department of Corrections to be “deliberately indifferent” to the treatment of the prisoners in isolation.

The court’s a 66-page decision released publicly Monday accompanies a 2017 ruling that found mental health care in Alabama’s prisons to be “horrendously inadequate.”

A federal court ruled Monday that Alabama’s prison system fails to adequately evaluate the mental health of inmates during isolation in segregation cells.

The treatment of the inmates is unconstitutional and violates the Eighth Amendment, U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson wrote in a ruling that found the Alabama Department of Corrections to be “deliberately indifferent” to the treatment of the prisoners in isolation.

The court’s a 66-page decision released publicly Monday accompanies a 2017 ruling that found mental health care in Alabama’s prisons to be “horrendously inadequate.”

Thompson's scathing ruling — which calls ADOC's mental health evaluations "so cursory as not to be worth the paper they are written on" — comes days after the state acknowledged a spate of suicides in Alabama prisons. Thirteen people have died by suicides in Alabama prisons within the last 14 months, with six occurring since November 2018.

“It has been evident for years that ADOC has failed to identify, monitor, and properly care for people who have serious mental illnesses and who develop them in ADOC custody,” said Maria Morris, senior supervising attorney at the SPLC. “That systematic failure has led to needless suffering, especially for people in segregation. We are sorry ADOC didn’t do anything to remedy the situation during the last year and a half, as hundreds or thousands of men and women suffered in ADOC segregation units, and ultimately as 13 people took their own lives. We look forward to addressing the remedy with ADOC as soon as possible.”

The Alabama Disability Advocacy Program and the Southern Poverty Law Center brought the lawsuit, Braggs v. Dunn, in 2014 that led to the 2017 ruling and the new ruling Monday. The mental health care aspect of the lawsuit is only the first phase of the suit. A second phase of the suit concerning dental care will go to trial in late 2019 or early 2020. A third phase will follow and focus on medical care.

“It has been evident for years that ADOC has failed to identify, monitor, and properly care for people who have serious mental illnesses and who develop them in ADOC custody.  That systematic failure has led to needless suffering, especially for people in segregation,” said Maria Morris, senior supervising attorney at the SPLC. “We are only sorry ADOC didn’t do anything to remedy the situation during the last year and a half, as hundreds or thousands of men and women suffered in ADOC segregation units, and ultimately as 13 people took their own lives. We look forward to addressing the remedy with ADOC as soon as possible.”

The new ruling comes as Gov. Kay Ivey is considering a plan to reform Alabama’s prison system. In her State of the State Address, she called for an “Alabama solution” to an “Alabama problem.”

Former Gov. Robert Bentley tried to alleviate overcrowding and poor conditions in prisons by proposing a plan to build four new regional prisons to replace Alabama’s aging 15 correctional facilities. That plan failed two years in a row.

Last week, the SPLC called on the Legislature and Ivey to address the suicide crisis in Alabama’s prisons.

2 Black Men on Death-Row Set to be Murdered by Authoritarians in Georgia & Oklahoma Ask the Supreme Ct for New Trials b/c Racist Jurors Described Them as NGHRS & Racism "Infected their cases"

supreme klan.jpg

From [HERE] Georgia death-row prisoner Keith Tharpe (pictured, left below) and Oklahoma death-row prisoner Julius Jones (pictured, right below) are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to grant them new trials after evidence showed that white jurors who described the defendants with racist slurs participated in deciding their cases. The involvement of the racist jurors, the prisoners say, violated their Sixth Amendment rights to impartial juries. A juror in Tharpe’s trial gave a sworn affidavit years after voting to convict Tharpe, in which he wondered “if black people even have souls,” and said, “there are two types of black people: 1. Black folks and 2. N***rs." Tharpe, he wrote, “wasn’t in the ‘good’ black folks category in my book, should get the electric chair for what he did." In Jones’s case, a juror told Jones’s legal team that another juror had said the trial was “a waste of time” and “they should just take the n***r out and shoot him behind the jail.”

Tharpe and Jones argue that two 2017 Supreme Court decisions, Peña-Rodriguez v. Colorado and Buck v. Davis, require the Court to reconsider their cases. In Buck, Chief Justice John Roberts declared for the Court that “the law punishes people for what they do, not who they are,” and overturned a death sentence imposed after a psychologist testified that Buck posed a greater risk of future dangerousness because he is black. The Chief Justice wrote that “discrimination on the basis of race, odious in all aspects, is especially pernicious in the administration of justice,” calling racism a “toxin[ that] can be deadly in small doses.” In Peña-Rodriguez, now-retired Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for a five-justice majority of the Court that courts may consider a juror’s statement showing he had relied on racial stereotypes to convict a defendant as evidence of a Sixth Amendment violation.

Keith Tharpe and Julius Jones.jpg

In January 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal appeals court’s refusal to consider Tharpe’s racial discrimination claim.  Less than three months later, that court again refused to consider the issue, saying Tharpe had not previously presented it to the state courts. Jones has also repeatedly sought review of claims that racial discrimination has infected his case. He previously asked the Court to overturn his death sentence based on the findings of a 2017 study that showed significant racial disparities in Oklahoma’s death sentencing practices. On January 22, 2019, after having rescheduled consideration of Jones’s appel 25 times, the Court declined to review the case. Samuel Spital, who was co-counsel in Buck’s case and is lead counsel on the brief of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund’s friend-of-the-court brief supporting Tharpe, said of Tharpe and Jones, “We know that these two men are facing execution at least in part because they’re black. Under those circumstances, the state just doesn’t have an interest in enforcing a death sentence, and for that reason, the procedural obstacles that you would have with respect to certain other claims should not be part of the analysis.” The cases are considered a bellwether of the post-Kennedy Court’s commitment to racial justice.

Body Cam Footage Shows White BSO Deputy Public Ruler Yelling at Black Man Calling Him "Boy" & Demanding Subservience Before Grabbing Him by the Throat while he is Holding an Infant

From [HERE] Deputy James Cady confronts Allen Floyd, an African-American father calmly holding his infant, angrily drops f-bombs and calls Floyd “boy” before appearing to grab Floyd by the throat.

Floyd wasn’t under investigation for any crime. Nor was he being belligerent towards Cady in the video from July 25, 2017.

Broward Public Defender Howard Finkelstein made the latter point in a Jan. 30 letter to newly appointed Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony.

“Deputy Cady’s verbal assault coupled with him choking an otherwise cooperative bystander can only be characterized as unlawful touching,” Finkelstein wrote. “In addition, Deputy Cady’s use of the term “boy” is offensive, condescending and demeaning. It carries racial connotations when used while addressing an adult black male.”

In the official report on the incident, Cady’s presence isn’t even noted, although the video shows he played a key role.

Tony’s response letter said, “Thank you for bringing this matter that occurred in July 2017 to my attention. A cursory search of our system shows that no complaint was made prior to receiving your letter.

“Our Division of Internal Affairs will provide you with a response upon conducting a thorough examination.”

“Our Division of Internal Affairs will provide you with a response upon conducting a thorough examination.”

The public defender’s office discovered the video in preparing to defend Johnnymae Dardy. The probable cause affidavit, filled out by BSO Deputy Debbra Bridgman, said Dardy had been watching Floyd’s baby when police encountered her at the Red Carpet Inn in Dania Beach. The Sun Sentinel said BSO had been called to the motel about Dardy, who had a room there.

broward deputy 1.jpg

The bodycam video picks up with Cady asking Floyd, who is holding his child and sitting on a curb, if he has a separate room at the motel. Then, Cady demands, three times, to see Floyd’s identification. Floyd shows Cady pictures on his phone, apparently to show he’s the child’s father, a gesture Cady disdains.

Finally, after Floyd shakes his head at Cady, Cady says, “OK, fine, I’m going to take her to jail because she’s got a warrant and I’m going to call child services on this kid!” When Floyd starts to say something, Cady says, “Quit f----- with me, boy! You hear me? Get your ID! Now!”

Bridgman’s voice chimes in, “ID!”

Dardy, who had been in a car, appears and Cady says, “Get your ass back in the car! I’m tired of you f----- playing games!”

As Cady angrily repeats his demand for Floyd’s identification, Floyd asks, “Why are you being so hostile?”

Cady answers, “Because you’re giving me s--- and I’m tired of it!”

Eventually Cady says, “I want to know who this baby is going with!” and Floyd replies, “He’s going with me, Allen Floyd.”

Floyd rises from the curb, still holding his child in his left arm. Cady steps toward him. Floyd turns to walk away and says, “Stop calling me ‘boy!’ ”

Cady grabs Floyd by the right arm while Bridgman grabs Floyd’s child from his left arm. Then, the video shows Cady’s left hand holding small papers that, along with Floyd’s torso, partially block the bodycam while his right hand is up in Floyd’s throat area.

When a fuller view is available again, Floyd’s saying, “I ain’t doin’ nothin’!” with his arms spread wide. Bridgman is holding the baby.

The probable cause affidavit, available on the Broward County Courts website under Case No. 17008749CF10A, doesn’t mention that Cady was among the deputies there. It doesn’t mention Floyd. It doesn’t mention why the deputies came to the Red Carpet Inn. Nor, when describing Dardy trying to grab the baby from Bridgman’s arms, does it mention how Bridgman came to be holding the child.

It does say, “While attempting to identify a child’s parent that was in Johnnymae Dardy’s custody when making contact with her, Johnnymae Dardy exited the vehicle and attempted to grab the baby from Deputy Bridgman’s arms, risking the safety of the baby.”

Gordon Weekes, executive chief assistant public defender, said that if a person answers a law enforcement officer with his name, as Floyd did several times, he’s identified himself. From that point, officers have many ways to verify identity.

Video Shows White Philly Cop Grabbing a Black Teenager’s Hair from Behind & Throwing Her Down to the Curb to Make False Arrest for Stolen Car - Charges Dismissed Due to Lack of Evidence

From [HERE] Na-Sha Lockett was left shaken and traumatized after a male Philadelphia police officer yanked her by her hair, forcefully threw her onto a city street and used racial slurs during an arrest on Wednesday, said her attorney, Emeka Igwe.

Lockett, 18, also accused the officer of leaving her in a patrol car for hours with her hands cuffed behind her back outside a police district building, Igwe said. When police took Lockett out of the car, they put her in jail for the night.

Police charged Lockett with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, but the district attorney’s office declined to prosecute due to lack of evidence, said Ben Waxman, a spokesman for the office.

Lockett, who was released on Thursday, said in an email that she’s grateful to be alive.

“The encounter with the police officers was brutal!” Lockett said. “I felt scared, disrespected, humiliated and physically injured from head-to-toe.”

The confrontation between Lockett and police began between 3 and 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, when she was traveling with three other people in a vehicle in North Philadelphia, Igwe said.

The driver parked the car on the 2300 block of North Colorado Street, not far from Lockett’s home, Igwe said. The three other passengers got out of the car while Lockett remained sitting in the front passenger seat waiting for their return, Igwe said.

That was when police approached the parked car because the vehicle was reported as stolen, Igwe said. However, Igwe said, the car was not stolen and the driver had attempted to remove the car from the database in the past.

The police officer, who was in uniform, approached Lockett as she sat inside the car and ordered her to open the door, Igwe said.

When Lockett did not open the door, the officer opened the door, removed her from the vehicle, and put her in handcuffs, Igwe said. The officer never told Lockett why she was being detained, Igwe added.

A minute-long video of the encounter posted on YouTube shows Lockett standing with her hands cuffed behind her back and pressed up against the rear of the police vehicle by the unidentified officer.

In the video, Lockett can be seen yelling and cursing as she stood facing away from the officer, but she did not appear to be physically resisting the officer.

Lockett says, “I’m about to spit on you.”

The officer can be seen in the video grabbing Lockett’s hair, spinning her around and using a leg-sweep to get her onto the ground. Another officer can be seen in the video standing only a few inches away from Lockett and the first officer.

“Get off of me!” Lockett can be heard screaming while on the ground in the video.

Lockett did not spit at the officer, Igwe said, and her face was turned away from the officer when he yanked her hair.

Igwe said the officer used racial slurs during the arrest, including calling Lockett a “Black bastard” and a “Black b----.”

philly cops 34.jpg

In the video, a female bystander can be seen walking up to Lockett and the officer on the ground, yelling, “Why are you on her like that?”

Lockett was receiving medical attention for a sprained neck, headaches and more, Igwe said.

“I don’t think there’s any way to sugarcoat it other than it was an assault on her by this Philadelphia police officer,” Igwe said.

Igwe called for a timely investigation into the incident and, if warranted, for charges to be filed against the officer. He added that Lockett was considering filing a lawsuit over the incident.

“An apology is not sufficient,” he said. “There needs to be consequences.”

Mark Kelly Tyler, senior pastor at Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church, said the brief video of the encounter was “extremely troubling” and appeared to be “a classic example of excessive force.” He believed race was a factor in the officer’s decision to use force, saying Blacks have a long history of abuse at the hands of police in Philadelphia.

“I couldn’t see him doing that to a white woman,” he said.

From [HERE] The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office is responding to an arrest video gone viral.

In the video, a white citizen steps in to help deputies arresting a man at the Yorktown Walmart.

It's sparked controversy because in the process of the arrest, the suspect may have been put in harm's way as the citizen's knee is pressed down on the man.

The video that’s now been shared more than a thousand times was recorded by a woman named Dana Grey on February 1.

“Can he breathe? Can he breathe?" shouts Grey in the video.

Grey says she started recording when she noticed two police officers and a civilian pinning down a man in the Walmart parking lot. 
She says she saw they were all punching the man on the ground and she was concerned for his safety. 

"For crying out loud the guy was already on his stomach, why are you punching him? Why are you tasing him? Why do you need the assistance of a ... non law enforcement officer to help you apprehend this man?" asked Grey. 

Grey says she continued to record as the officers put the man in handcuffs, the civilian walked away, and medics arrived. 

"He has no affiliation with law enforcement, and that to me right there off bat is unwanted assault. The fact police officers would allow that to happen under their supervision. I really don't trust it,” she explained.

The York County Sheriff, Danny Diggs says the man who was arrested is 41-year-old Raymond Tyrone Ralph. 

Police say right before Grey started recording the incident, Ralph was wanted for a shoplift in progress. They say Ralph got just outside of Walmart with a tote full of stolen items when he ditched the cart and took off running. 

"He runs, jumps over a curb into a car, and falls down on the ground himself, so when we get to him he's already down on the ground and it's in between some cars, it's kind of a tight space."

Another gentleman comes up and says 'hey do you need some assistance because the suspect is actively resisting'" Diggs stated. Diggs says he's grateful to the white man who helped his deputies.

Police say Ralph is now facing obstruction of justice and 3rd offense shoplifting charges.

10 On Your Side viewed Walmart’s surveillance video, and one of the officer’s body camera footage. 

The sheriff’s office edited the surveillance footage inside the Walmart for time’s sake but showed us the complete body camera footage. 

Only one officer’s body camera was activated because the other didn’t turn it on properly. 

We confirmed the sheriff’s narrative, but did not hear the verbal exchange of the man asking permission to intervene. The full video is at this link.

RACIST SUSPECT Alabama Attorney General Steve MarshALL.

From [HERE] and [HERE] An unidentified white police officer who shot and killed a black man during a shootout inside an Alabama mall will not face criminal charges.

A report released by the state’s attorney general’s office says that the officer “reasonably exercised” his power when he shot Emantic “EJ” Fitzgerald Bradford Jr. three times. In the seconds-long chaos of that Thanksgiving night, the officer saw Bradford holding a gun, just feet away from a man who had just been shot. He saw the 21-year-old as “an immediate deadly threat to innocent civilians,” the report says, even though Bradford never fired his gun.

The 26-page report pieced together the rapid sequence of events that began with two gunshots just before 10 p.m. on Nov. 22, during early Black Friday shopping at the Galleria.

The announcement comes after months of investigation into the shooting, during which police repeatedly changed their story about what happened. Shortly after the shooting on November 22, police claimed that Bradford had shot at least one person at the Riverchase Galleria mall prior to the police shooting. But police later acknowledged that Bradford didn’t shoot anyone, and arrested another man for the initial shooting. [MORE]

Erron Brown, the man who police later said was the actual shooter, allegedly shot 18-year-old Brian Wilson on the mall’s second-floor walkway and left him lying outside a JC Penney store. Brown ran toward the store as mall shoppers scurried away. Bradford, who was nearby, ran in the opposite direction. But he then turned around and headed toward the JC Penney and Wilson, with his gun drawn, the report says. It states:

“The facts of this case demonstrate that Officer 1 reasonably exercised his official powers, duties, or functions when he shot E.J. Bradford. Officer 1 and his partner (“Officer 2”) were on duty in the Galleria when they heard two gunshots approximately 75 feet away.

Officers 1 and 2 immediately moved toward the gunshots. Within three seconds, they encountered E.J. Bradford, who held a firearm in a ready position, then charged forward:

Several persons were in Bradford’s path. Immediately before him, Brian Wilson lay on the ground, bleeding from his gunshot wounds, and 18-year-old (“AC”) stood over Wilson. Beyond them, Erron Brown (the initial shooter) and his companions were running into JC Penney, while several innocent bystanders were scrambling for cover:

Officer 1 identified E.J. Bradford as an immediate deadly threat to innocent civilians and thus shot Bradford to eliminate the threat.”

Witnesses told investigators that they heard the officer tell Bradford to drop his weapon. But the officer told investigators that he was unable to give verbal commands because of the “quickness of the event” and the “immediate threat” he believed Bradford posed, according to the report.

The report says that the officer mistakenly believed Bradford shot the victim “does not render his actions unreasonable,” the report says.

“First, a reasonable person could have assumed that the only person with a gun who was running toward the victim of a shooting that occurred just three seconds earlier fired the shots,” the report says, adding that the other officer and two other witnesses all said that, at that moment, they also believed Bradford was the shooter. The report states:

“Officer 1’s actions were reasonable under the circumstances and were consistent with his training and nationally-accepted standards for “active shooter” scenarios. Accordingly, Officer 1’s actions do not constitute a crime under Alabama law, see Ala. Code § 13A-3-22, and therefore should not be presented to a grand jury for potential criminal prosecution. See Rule 3.8(a), Alabama Rules for Professional Conduct.”

Bradford was licensed to carry a firearm, and it’s not illegal in Alabama to carry a gun in public.

Brown, 20, has been charged with attempted murder. His attorneys said he shot Wilson in self-defense, according to the report, which did not say how the two men knew each other. There has been no evidence that Bradford was involved in the shooting, and it remains unclear why he drew his gun.

The report also did not say whether he knew that the officers were behind him. Although the officer was wearing a body camera, he did not activate it before he shot Bradford. There was “no time” to do so, he told investigators.

Bradford’s parents and a family attorney said earlier that he had a concealed-handgun license. The officer, who was not named, was placed on administrative leave after the shooting, though it was not immediately clear if he has been reinstated. The Hoover Police Department have not responded to a request for comment Wednesday.

Bradford’s death last November reignited racial tensions in Alabama, where protesters marched through the Riverchase Galleria in the city of Hoover, demanding why police killed a black man who may not have had anything to do with the shooting.

Now, more than two months later, the decision to not charge the officer has renewed that outrage. On Tuesday evening, protesters outside Hoover City Hall burned American flags spray-painted with “BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER,” as police officers watched from a short distance. Frank Matthews, one of the organizers, told the Associated Press that demonstrators, including Bradford’s relatives, will travel to Montgomery, Ala., on Wednesday to protest outside the office of Attorney General Steve Marshall.

On Tuesday evening, demonstrators burned two American flags outside Hoover City Hall as police nearby looked on. On the flags were spray painted the words "BLACK LIVES DON'T MATTER."

Demonstrator Carlos Chaverst Jr. told onlookers at the gathering, "His life burned. And now this American flag is going to burn to represent what it’s like to be black in America."An independent autopsy showed Bradford was struck three times from behind — in the head, neck and the back.

Crump said that race played a role in Bradford's death and that a civil lawsuit claiming wrongful death will be filed.

"All across America, you see this symbiotic relationship between prosecutors and law enforcement that when they kill unarmed people of color or they kill people of color who are posing no threats, and they shot first and ask questions later," Crump said.

President Yurugu Continues to Display His Patapathetic Fascination w/the Exploitation & Control of Nature and Genocide of Non-White People in Tweet Mocking the Trail of Tears [Weitko Disease]

The Trail of Tears was a series of forced relocations of Native Americans in the United States from their ancestral homelands in the Southeastern United States, to areas to the west (usually west of the Mississippi River) that had been designated as Indian Territory. The forced relocations were carried out by government authorities following the passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. The relocated peoples suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while en route to their new designated reserve, and many died before reaching their destinations. The forced removals included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Ponca nations. The phrase "Trail of Tears" originates from a description of the removal of many Native American tribes, including the infamous Cherokee Nation relocation in 1838. [MORE]

According to "FUNKTIONARY, THE KEY HOLDERS ENPSYCHLOPEDIA:" 

Weitko Disease - the caucasian’s patapathetic fascination with the exploitation and control of nature and exploitation and genocide of his fellow man.

Yurugu - a mythological figure within the Dogon tribe (Africa) who is "the incomplete being" (fiend without a face) referring to Neuropeans (neurotic Europeans) within the European asili. 2) a regressive (degenerative) state of consciousness where the soul is cut off from itself. 3) the inability to recognize or abate unacknowledged destructive capabilities. Yurugu also expresses itself and manifests as the pathological condition that utterly fails to convince those in geographical proximity of its harmlessness, therefore has to kill them. Yurugu is in a vicious spiral increasingly at odds with his own humanity—as fragmented, pathological, and distorted as it is.
