Pittsburgh Cops Beat Up Violinist Honour Student For Having A Bottle Of Mountain Dew

From the page:
“Two New York City police officers, Mata and Moreno, were convicted of official misconduct on a drunk and helpless woman.
The officers had helped the woman into her building after a cab driver called 911 to report that his passenger was too drunk to get out of his taxi.
Still they returned to her apartment three times that night. They were later on accused for raping her that night while she was in an unstable and drunk state, but no DNA evidence were found so those charges was cleared shortly after.
Moreno admitted he only cuddled with her in bed, and that no further sexual activity was involved.
Both officers also admitted that they performed a fake 911 call just to have a reason to enter her apartment.
Moreno got a year in prison, and both were immediately stripped of their badges. Morena’s sentence can soon be extended because of some drug possession charges involving heroin.”

This is amazing. Perfectly represents what was happening saturday. This needs to go viral. Reblog this shit.
The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it. In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify “key bloggers” and to monitor “billions of conversations” about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs. This is yet another sign that the alternative…

Police documents obtained by The Associated Press show how the city’s rich heritage as a place where immigrants can blend in and build their lives now clashes with today’s New York, where police see blending in as one of the first priorities for would-be terrorists. The documents describe in extraordinary detail an NYPD program to build a database of daily life, cataloguing where people ate, worked and prayed.
“We’ve been harassed for so long, it doesn’t make any sense to complain,” said Leo Santini, a cafe owner and U.S. citizen who changed his name from Mohamed Hussein because he thought he would be treated better without an Arab name.
WTF? George Orwell would be so proud of the NYPD.
From the page: “This is an infographic of police misconduct that the National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project (NPMSRP) have reported. It shows how much police brutality has been happening around us. Some of the numbers may shock you.”
If you’ll go look at the NPMSRP website, you’ll see the statistics are actually worse than what is displayed in this infographic. It’s appalling. You can also look at one of my previous posts related to this one here.

Last month, I attended the 19th annual State Policy Network conference in Seattle, Washington. Although the conference was informative and enjoyable, I took home a different lesson on free-market enterprise. This was my first trip on an airplane since President Obama upped the intensity of the screening process the Transportation Security Administration uses on passengers.
Since the new, enhanced screening procedures have been implemented, the TSA has foisted many horrific indignities upon passengers under the guise of “public safety.” These include a 94 year old woman forced to stand for examination, a terminal cancer patient asked to remove her adult diaper, and even the breaking of a urostomy bag during a pat-down which left a bladder cancer survivor covered in his own urine. According to Thomas Sawyer, the man whom the TSA left humiliated and covered in his own pee, “I tried to warn him (the TSA officer) that he would hit the bag and break the seal on my bag, but he ignored me.”
