CHP officer punching woman.

I'm sure that was a measured response - I mean, she was covering her face - how else is he going to break through her hands and connect with her face unless he does it repeatedly, with a lot of force?

It says the officer tried to stop her for fear that she would get hurt on the highway. Then he starts punching her in the face.

"A 61-year-old woman was pronounced dead after being struck multiple times by vehicles on the San Diego (405) Freeway in Gardena, according to authorities.

The victim, who remains unidentified, pending notification of next of kin, was reportedly struck by two vehicles as she walked on the freeway’s southbound lanes, just south of Normandie Avenue."

I'd rather get punched in the face than die.

The CHP said the woman refused to give her name. She was booked as Jane Doe and taken to a local hospital for mental and physical evaluation. According to a hospital spokesperson, she was treated and released on Wednesday.
Personally, I'd recommend the CHP Officer get some psych evals.

I rather not get punched in the face while not walking on freeway than get punched in the face while walking along the roadside.

Did you even watch the video? The lady isn't in traffic. She walking on dirt toward the parked truck. Then the police officer runs up behind her, throws her to the ground, and then starts punching her in the face. He continues punching her while she is holding up her arms to protect her face.

I don't think she was chasing him around the neighborhood with a loaded gun before he attacked her to defend himself.

Zimmerman also wasn't defenseless as he had a loaded gun in his possession.

Man Who Shot at Cops During No-Knock Raid Acquitted on All Charges
Read more at http://thefreethoughtproject.com/man...Ul3Jt5ofGqc.99

After a 9 hour deliberation, a jury has found Adrian Perryman, not guilty on all four counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer.

The incident that led to the charges against Perryman happened during the pre-dawn hours of October 26, 2010 in San Antonio, TX.

SAPD’s tactical response unit was executing a no-knock search warrant. The occupants in the house at the time were Perryman, his girlfriend Rebecca Flores, and Flores’s 3 year old grand daughter Savannah.

When Flores saw two shadowy men on the security cameras, she woke up Perryman, and tossed him his gun.

According to MySA News, Flores recalled the events of that night to the jury. “I put my body over Savannah’s,” she said, recalling for jurors what she did in the moments after handing Perryman the gun and before he opened fire. “He said ‘I’ve got a gun and I’m going to shoot — stay out!’”

Flores said it wasn’t until after he fired four shots that she heard anyone yelling “Police!”

“I remember telling him the police were here; I thought they were there to protect us. I said ‘Oh, thank God,’” she said.

Perryman took the stand in his defense last week and told jurors how he had shouted a warning before he heard the front door go down and “unloaded” his gun.

“When I knew they were policemen, I lay down, face down,” he said, adding he dropped the gun and began apologizing. “I kept saying ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t know it was y’all. I’ve been broken into before.’”

This is a landmark case in the instance of no-knock raids. All too often we see innocent people beaten and killed during the execution of this questionable practice.

Hopefully this leads to a drop in the frequency of no-knock search warrants.

The details of the latest victim in the relentless and immoral war on drugs were released this week by the Tampa Bay Times.

A 29-year old man was gunned down in his own home by officers serving a no-knock search warrant. They found .2 grams of marijuana.

How many more grenades will have to be thrown into cribs before police realize that the war on drugs was lost as soon as it started?

Dramatic cellphone video out of Petersburg, Virginia, shows just how quickly a situation can go sideways.

The video, obtained by WWBT-TV, shows 17-year-old JaQuan Fisher standing on his front porch filming police officers make several arrests. When an officer sees him recording, the chaotic altercation was set into motion.

“Unless you want me to take your phone from you,” and officer is heard saying moments before a wild struggle ensued.

“[The officer] came off the porch and said, ‘You want me to take your phone?’ I put my phone in my pocket and then when he tried to take my phone, I guess he thought he was going to get my phone and he shoved me. I shoved him back,” Fisher told WWBT-TV.

Then all hell broke loose, with a second officer responding to the physical altercation and seemingly spraying mace.

“They maced each other, too. He just started mace-ing everywhere,” Debra Fisher, JaQuan’s mother, said.

At one point, another officer puts Fisher in a chokehold and tries to pull him over the railing of the front porch, bending his body backwards.

Police were reportedly arresting several people from the house next door. One of the suspects being arrested was Fisher’s cousin, who reportedly advised him to start recording.

The Fisher family says they have a right to record officers from their property.

Citizens are permitted to video record police officers in public without consent as long as they don’t interfere with their official duties.

Police charged Fisher with two counts of felony assault on law enforcement, however, prosecutors dropped one of the charges and reduced the other to a misdemeanor. He pleaded guilty and a judge reportedly found his mom guilty of obstructing justice. A similar incident involving the Petersburg Police Department apparently occurred roughly two months ago.

Durham cops lied about 911 calls
By John H. Tucker @JH_Tucker

Several Durham police officers lied about non-existent 911 calls to try to convince residents to allow them to search their homes, a tactic several lawyers say is illegal. The officers targeted residences where individuals with outstanding warrants were thought to be living, and told them that dispatch had received a 911 call from that address, when no such call had been made.

However, Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez says the 911 tactic was never a part of official policy. Last month, the department officially banned the practice, according to a memo from Lopez.

The tactic came to light at a court hearing on May 27, when a Durham Police officer testified it was part of official departmental policy. The hearing involved a defendant who had been charged with marijuana possession. (The INDY is not naming the defendant because the charges against her were dropped.)

In February, Officer A.B. Beck knocked on the door of the defendant's home in South-Central Durham. When the defendant answered the door, Beck told her—falsely—that someone in her home had called 911 and hung up, and that he wanted to make sure everyone was safe. The defendant permitted Beck to enter her home, where he discovered two marijuana blunts and a marijuana grinder.

When Beck took the witness stand, he admitted to fabricating the 911 story in order to enter the house. Beck testified that his true intent was to serve a warrant, though he never produced the warrant in the courtroom.

Beck further testified that the 911 ruse was permitted under a department policy in cases where domestic violence is alleged, recalled Morgan Canady, the defendant's lawyer.

During cross-examination, Canady quizzed Beck further.

Did you say there was a 911 hang-up? she asked.

Yes, he said.

But there was not a 911 hang-up?

No.

So you entered the house based on a lie?

Yes.

And this is your policy for domestic violence warrants?

Yes.

At that point Canady made a motion to suppress the marijuana evidence. Since the defendant's consent was based on false premises, Canady reasoned, the consent was not informed and voluntary. Marcia Morey, chief district judge for Durham County, allowed the motion to suppress the evidence.

"You cannot enter someone's house based on a lie," Morey said from the bench during the hearing.

Without the evidence, the district attorney's office dropped the charges.

"People have a constitutional right to privacy, and you can't fake someone out of their constitutional rights," said Durham defense attorney Brian Aus, who was not involved with the case. "You've got to be honest about this stuff."

Ten days after the case was dropped, Chief Lopez sent a memo to all police department personnel banning the 911 ruse tactic. The department provided a copy of the memo to the INDY.

"It has recently been brought to my attention that some officers have informed citizens that there has been a 911 hang-up call from their residence in order to obtain consent to enter for the actual purpose of looking for wanted persons on outstanding warrants," said the memo. "Effective immediately no officer will inform a citizen that there has been any call to the emergency communications center, including a hang-up call, when there in fact has been no such call."

Asked why Officer Beck considered the 911 ruse tactic permissible, a police spokesperson said, "the department is looking into that."

Long Beach police were pursuing a man fleeing from a Target Store security guard for a “a crime allegedly committed at the store,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said late Sunday.

When deputies arrived to help security officers locked in a struggle with the man, he pulled out a large pair of scissors, according to a department statement.

The man then fled to his vehicle and led the police on a chase which ended at the 1800 block of East Ocean Boulevard.

The department claimed that he was refusing commands to exit his vehicle and allegedly got out of his car with a “large wooden stick.”

When the man began to flea police they initially fired a stun bag at him, which showed to have no effect.

At this point the Long Beach Police claim to have “encountered the man” and shot him. However the video shows no such encounter. The man is completely isolated and it appears that he was shot in cold blood, in the back.

What do you think? Was someone in imminent danger that justified the firing of actual bullets at an unarmed man?

Did this man deserve to die for fleeing from police? Why are all these ‘public servants’ assuming the role of judge jury and executioner, and nothing is happening to them?

Due process is dying a slow and ugly death in this country, one cold blooded, state sanctioned murder at a time.
