Do local police do background checks before hiring or is it a KKK club? I mean, it's becoming pretty clear that many of these towns police are hiring friends who have the same racist mentality.

To be completely fair, it was a blank application for the KKK, not HIS application. I mean, it certainly wouldn't surprise me if he were a member, but we don't know that for sure. I guess he could just be a history buff who's only interested in racist memorabilia. Perhaps non-racists collecting Nazi items is the new "ironic mullet".

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

I have watched a few videos recently from Live PD and they used dogs to search cars for a search. All the videos look like the dogs react to the trainer's positive voice more than any scent they are picking up and it makes me wonder how legitimate these hits actually are. I have seen video of dogs hitting for sure but a lot of these I have seen recently is the dog just running around the car, hopping up when the officer says search and then the dog keeps going around the car. Anyone know more about this subject?

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

I saw a similar video pointing out that a cop gave the dog a signal to scratch on the window which then gives them permission to search the car. Kinda fucked up.

Cops question black man for looking at white woman.
Where the white woman at.


“I was walking to the CVS over here when this young man is stopped,” Adolph says in the video, narrating the unfortunate series of events. “Because a Caucasian lady said that he looked at her suspiciously. He has been pulled over, walking to go to eat, by two police officers for suspicion of being black.”
So they sent out multiple officers because a lady said a black guy looked at her.

Police alter line up shot to look like mug shot.
All black people look a like anyway

I know they think we all look alike, but with the assortment of distinct tattoos that adorn Tyrone Lamont Allen’s right cheek, forehead and left eye, it’s pretty damn hard to mistake the 50-year-old for anybody else. Yet, when a string of bank heists occurred in April 2017 and not a single bank teller could recall seeing any tattoos on the face of the suspect who robbed them, Portland police did the unthinkable, according to Oregon Live.

“I basically painted over the tattoos,” police forensic criminalist Mark Weber testified . “Almost like applying electronic makeup.’’


Specifically, Portland police digitally altered Allen’s mugshot by using Photoshop to remove his tattoos entirely. Then, without telling anyone that they altered his photo, they presented his new mugshot along with photos of “five similar-looking men” to the bank tellers for identification. And as you suspected, some of those tellers then identified Allen as the culprit.
Apparently digitally changing the line up photo is a standard practice for police. This should be illegal. They are making people look like people they are not.

The last time I heard the "he's looking at me!" complaint was when my daughter (who was 6 at the time) complained that my son was "looking at her" during dinnertime.

Unfair. He looked at her suspiciously.

Is there any other way a black man can look at a white woman?

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

It should be added to a rule book for male African Americans: Always comply with police commands, don't twitch, don't tense up, don't run, don't look menacingly or suspiciously. If you follow all of that you might still get arrested or shot, but the risk is vastly reduced.

A rule book for male African Americans? OOoooookay. Btw, I don't believe this advice is some kind of revelation. I'm sure they've heard it before. Shouldn't be necessary, regardless.

It's nothing new, and that's too bad, isn't it? The first time I heard that some African American male teenagers were told to "behave" like that by their parents, I thought it was a joke, but it wasn't. It's hard for me to think how it must feel to hear that.

I think it's time we take a serious look at our hiring process for the police force. These aren't our best and brightest.

You know they're using the "n-word" when they're not in public.

I've been to cop bars that friends of mine go to and overheard conversations with racial overtones towards blacks, hispanics, and middle easterners.
No n-bombs, but I've heard "those people are savages/animals/etc..." and stuff similar to that.

Anyone remember that time in 1992 when Giulliani held a protest with the cops against David Dinkins that turned into a riot??
Plenty of n-bombs were dropped.

More on the time Rudy Giuliani helped incite a riot of racist cops
