Everyone is focused on the joker nut ball, who is strangely not as spry and nimble as he was the day he wielded three guns, wounding 58 and killing 12. Meanwhile, US police officers ARE SHOOTING at WOMEN AND CHILDREN …in AMERICA…in 2012.

Marine Corps creates law enforcement battalions

By JULIE WATSON

Associated Press

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — The Marine Corps has created its first law enforcement battalions – a lean, specialized force of military police officers that it hopes can quickly deploy worldwide to help investigate crimes from terrorism to drug trafficking and train fledgling security forces in allied nations.

 

The Corps activated three such battalions last month. Each is made up of roughly 500 military police officers and dozens of dogs. The Marine Corps has had police battalions off and on since World War II but they were primarily focused on providing security, such as accompanying fuel convoys or guarding generals on visits to dangerous areas, said Maj. Jan Durham, commander of the 1st Law Enforcement Battalion at Camp Pendleton.

 

The idea behind the law enforcement battalions is to consolidate the military police and capitalize on their investigative skills and police training, he said. The new additions come as every branch in the military is trying to show its flexibility and resourcefulness amid defense cuts.

 

Marines have been increasingly taking on the role of a street cop along with their combat duties over the past decade in Iraq and Afghanistan, where they have been in charge of training both countries’ security forces. Those skills now can be used as a permanent part of the Marine Corps, Durham said.

 

The war on terror has also taught troops the importance of learning how to gather intelligence, secure evidence and assist local authorities in building cases to take down criminal networks. Troops have gotten better at combing raid sites for clues to help them track insurgents.

They also have changed their approach, realizing that marching into towns to show force alienates communities. Instead, they are being taught to fan out with interpreters to strike up conversations with truck drivers, money exchangers, cellphone sellers and others. The rapport building can net valuable information that could even alert troops about potential attacks.

Americans love their servitude, Mass. town votes in favor of fines for public profanity

23 Jun

  I’d like everyone to join me in giving these  traitors from Middleborough, Massachusetts a round of applause for supporting the ever-growing police state and the further elimination of the fading first amendment. The people of Middleborough voted for a law that gives $20 fines for public profanity. The new law will supposedly decriminalize a 1968 bylaw that made public profanity a criminal offense, which is the reason the bylaw was rarely enforced. Now that it is an easy source of revenue and won’t be met with as much opposition from the public  as it would if profanity was enforced as a misdemeanor and arrestable offense, it is not an outlandish prediction to say the cops will start enforcing it more, spitting on the first amendment without any guilt or acknowledgment of their part in helping ruin all that America stands for (but don’t get your hopes up, you can still be arrested for it). Just wait until swearing in the presence of a cop becomes “assault on an officer.” It sounds crazy, but passive resistance is now resisting arrest in Arizona, and plenty of people have been charged with assault on an officer when nothing of the sort ever occurred, so why wouldn’t it escalate in the country that has the largest prison population in the world and so many laws that the average citizen commits three felonies a day?   Remember,  you can be arrested for non-criminal offenses, like not having a dog on a leash, and then be strip searched and put into the jail’s general population. Now it seems that exercising your first amendment, your right to free speech, could earn you a dehumanizing naked examination too. Now that’s freedom.

R.I.P. Rodney King 1965-2012

Rodney King Dead: Face Of LA Riots Dies At Age 47 _ HuffingtonPost.com

Rodney King, the man who was at the center of the infamous Los Angeles riots, was found dead this morning, TMZ has reported. He was 47.

According to TMZ, King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelly, found him dead at the bottom of a swimming pool. CNN has confirmed his passing.

King recently marked the twentieth anniversary of the Los Angeles riots — the mayhem that took place after four police officers were acquitted of beating King in 1991. The beating, which was caught on camera, sparked national outrage and put King at the center of heated debate about the state of race relations in America.

CBS Los Angeles has released a radio interview with Rialto, California police Captain Randy De Anda, who says that King may have had some verbal contact with his fiancée, at which time she went outside and found him at the bottom of the pool.

“Rialto police officers responded to the location and removed him from inside of the pool and began CPR. The Rialto Fire Department paramedics responded and transported Mr. King to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead at 6:11 a.m. this morning,” De Anda said.

Preliminary information showed no signs of foul play, he added.

In his memoir, “The Riot Within: My Journey From Rebellion to Redemption,” published earlier this year, King detailed the high-speed chase that led up to his beating on March 3, 1991 and how he went on to receive a $3.8 million settlement from the city of Los Angeles. Most of the money was lost, however, to bad investments, including a hip-hop record label he founded.

More From AP:

The 1992 riots, which were set off by the acquittals of the officers who beat King, lasted three days and left 55 people dead, more than 2,000 injured and swaths of Los Angeles on fire. At the height of the violence, King pleaded on television: “Can we all get along?”

In the two decades after he became the central figure in the riots, King was arrested several times, mostly for alcohol-related crimes. He later became a record company executive and a reality TV star, appearing on shows such as “Celebrity Rehab.”

In an interview earlier this year with The Associated Press, King said he was a happy man.

“America’s been good to me after I paid the price and stayed alive through it all,” he says. “This part of my life is the easy part now.”

Killer Cops to Stand Trial for Beating Death of Homeless Man. No More Peace Officers to “Protect and Serve” USA

Edited July 11, 2012 to add: WARNING! I must confess, I was quite infuriated when I wrote the first 6 paragraphs,  so I apologize for the foul language and bombastic, crude personal opinions. At the time, I had been reading about this case for a few days and it was so horrific that I felt like screaming. It is truly a disturbing tragedy that should have never happened. Skip down six paragraphs if you find it offensive.

Kelly Thomas Tragedy Timeline -nbc.com

This first video is from last September, after Kelly Thomas, a schizophrenic homeless man, was killed in July 2011 abythe hands of six vicious cops, who we now know beat and tased him for over nine minutes straight as he screamed for his father, who happens to be a former police officer.  The tape of the brutal murder had yet to be released at the time of the video news report.

In the video you will see eyewitnesses, captured by a metro camera, describing what they had just seen.  One man seemed genuinely concerned, but no one did anything.  What can they do?  Well, legally, like actual law, not the globalist perversion of it, you CAN attempt to stop those sick cretins using as much force as necessary, but we haven’t had an administration that respects or follows The Constitution in quite a while, so even if you stopped the cops under 100% legitimate circumstances, you would probably still be labeled the criminal, sentenced to jail time, and probably tortured.  And even if you tried to stop them and failed because those shit-dwelling cowardly pustules of oozing bile beat you to death, you’d probably be posthumously found guilty, have your citizenship revoked, your existence erased from history, and all your possessions and family members confiscated by the Blue Shirts (The BSA) for the Fourth Reich.

I’ve decided not to imbed the new video because even when the video is not playing, a very graphic photo is displayed.  I do think it is important to at least have a quick peek at it, even if just for a fraction of a second.  We need to know the severity and inhumanity of this horrific attack  The video does not show the full 9 minutes minutes of brutality that was captured on a 33 minute long tape, but just a few moments is enough to make you vomit or scream or punch a wall, so this is a warning that it is disturbing footage.  I had to turn off the sound and turn my head a few times.
