many people think that they are thinking when they are merely
rearranging their prejudices.

Pestilential cops, prosecutors,
& judges in the news
Sergio De La Pava's Guardian article "The
Enemy is the State."
Just stop right here and read the damn thing. It's for your own
And then study the Guardian's interactive
database on killer cops in the US.
And then give some thought as to
what the hell is going on with these violent US cops
before stepping through these recent stories.
"Run, nigger, run" judge indicted for assault
on mentally disabled man. ABA
Judge William "Bill" Weisenberger (who is really
white) gets a paid vacation after being indicted for assaulting a black
man at a flea market last year. After beating the man Weisenberger
yelled "Run, nigger, run." He denied wrongdoing. He
would, wouldn't he? This judicial jackass is also facing a lawsuit
for charging a black man with nonexistent charges -- "roaming
livestock." Conveniently, the Miss Supreme Court found a state
law that lets judges keep collecting their pay even after being
indicted. Probably is restricted to white judges, but I don't know
for sure. Just sayin'.
Cops cuff and beat the victim, let the perp escape.
St. Ann is one of those dozens of tiny Missouri communities that
has been in the national news lately because of their Keystone Kops.
In this case the KKs were chasing some clown on I-70 when he ran into Joseph
Swink on the way home from work, causing Swink to crash. The
cops run up, pull Swink out of his wrecked car, throw him to the ground,
cuff him, beat him (after all he is black) and bust him. Look
at the photos of Swink's bleeding face and tell me if you believe the
police chief, Aaron Jimenez, when he says "Hey, my boys just
lightly dusted him with a feather duster and he musta' fell
Loser prosecutor Rand Csehy busted on distribution and
weapons charges trying to trade drugs for sex, now disbarred. AJC
Rand Csehy has landed in the gutter, and without his law
license. The loser ex-narcotics prosecutor for Fulton County is the
same guy who reported his girlfriend's suicide, which was caused by an
Atlanta Police service pistol belonging to Csehy. OK . . . if he
says so. The AJC
has been covering this guy since 2012, and it ain't a pretty picture.
SFPD cop Brian Stansbury busts public defender helping
her client. KQED
Public defender Jami Tillotson objected to the way Stansbury was
photographing/detaining her clients without a warrant and without probable
cause. When she stepped in to tell the cop to back off, he arrested
Someone needs to remind this idiot cop that SF, queer as it may be, is
still bound by the US Constitution, including the 4th and 5th Amendments.
Not surprisingly, with a little pressure from the entire world and the ACLU,
the cops dropped
the charges against Tillotson. Having busted her for
resisting arrest, looks to me like Sgt. Stansbury himself should now be
charged with filing a false report as there was clearly no
|New York City
Rookie NYPD cop Peter Liang finally indicted in the
killing of Akai Gurley Daily
Gurley was not involved or implicated in any criminal
activity. He and his girlfriend were standing on the landing of a
the stairwell of their apartment building. Liang shot Gurley in the
chest and then instead of using his radio to call for help, Liang and his
buddy called the police union delegate. Here's hoping this cop gets
the full 15 years.
Judge frees riot-rage Cleveland cop, Michael Brelo. The
Brelo, the cop who jumped up on the hood of a car and
emptied 49 rounds into the two unarmed black occupants, wasn't charged
with murder. He was charged with manslaughter and felonious
assault. That was his first piece of "good fortune."
His second was electing to forego a jury trial and trust that the judge, John
P. O'Donnell, a white guy, would see things the white way. The
judge figured since the cops pumped well over 100 rounds into the two men,
who knows whether Brelo's 49 rounds played a part in their deaths.
That's just the way it works in Cleveland. The prosecutor, Tim
McGinty, has appealed.
Idiot Fredricksburg cops taze driver having stroke. Daily
You just have to watch the
video to see what bungling, cowardly cops look like.
Incompetence in action -- and you're going to load cops like these up with
