"Security asked a group of drunken men to leave a bar in IL

One of the men returned with a gun, shooting

Jemel Roberson quickly apprehended the gunman and held him on the ground

police arrived and

shot Jemel Roberson, and killed him

even with people in the bar screaming "he's security, don't shoot, no!"

Jemel Roberson was someone my friends knew

He was twenty six years old

he wanted to be a policeman

New device lets Oklahoma cops seize cash without due process
capitalism-greed = "According to a contract obtained by Oklahoma Watch, ERAD Group charges $5,000 for each machine and $1,500 for training on how to use the device — a glorified card reader.

If that wasn’t enough, it also charges a processing fee of 7.7 percent on each transaction. So, if the state seizes $100,000 from a suspected drug dealer, ERAD Group pockets $7,700 in addition to the initial sale, training and any on-going need for maintenance and additional support."

Linden police 'deficient' in disciplining wrong-way cop, prosecutor says | NJ.com
police-abuses = Linden never took action after he was drunk and in multiple accidents. Union County took proper action by overseeing not only Linden's Internal Affairs Division until further notice, but requiring all Union County police forces to report when their officers are involved in certain kinds of crimes, such a drunk driving.

NYPD won't disclose what it does with its secret military-grade X-ray vans / Boing Boing
This is outrageous. They fucking bombard people with dangerous radiation? Fuck that shit. Yes, the article doesn't say they do, but fuck them. It's on them to prove they don't, not on me to leave my life in their nosy bitch hands.

Bill to keep police body cam video private raises alarm : news
People always have to ruin a good thing. Same with those red light cameras. If they had just done the right thing, instead of trying to catch every single infraction and even those who didn't do anything wrong, they would still be in operation today.

Catherine Crump: The small and surprisingly dangerous detail the police track about you | Talk Video | TED.com
License plate readers are everywhere, tracking & more importantly storing license plate information of average citizens. Even worse, individual police department data is aggregated and stored by the federal government, creating a huge big-brother database of the movement & interactions of citizens.

Tribalism is one of the biggest threats to the advancement of humanity. From teachers unions protecting shitty teachers to officers protecting bad cops to trade unions demanding everyone travel at the speed of the slowest ship (the worst worker), it is holding everyone back. Imagine if people gave a shit rather than trying to protect their own interests. What an amazing would it would be.

Victoria, TX cop tackles and tasers 76 year old man for an expired registration sticker. Even worse, turns out the the sticker was unnecessary because it was a new car with dealer tags : news
justice = See the top comment by Supernova821: "I know this will get buried, but as someone who LIVES in Victoria, this officer is now under HEAVY investigation and criminal charges are already being pressed. He is losing his job so now it just depends on how much trouble he is actually in." .................. police-abuses-proper-responses = First time I've actually seen police not swarm to protect their own. Is this the start of something new or just a glitch in the matrix?

In Wisconsin, A Decade-Old Police Shooting Leads To New Law : NPR
POWERFUL: "Bell bought every available billboard in Milwaukee with slogans like: "When Police Kill, Should They Judge Themselves?" "After we created enough ruckus, the unions ended up sitting down with us and talking with us," Bell says. They told him that if he wanted to take the billboards down, they would work with him in crafting some the legislation he sought." ......................... Unrelated to this link, but I just remembered that before police-abuses, I used to tag police abuses with police,corruption.

Drug raid in rural Georgia ends in a homeowner dead, no drugs found, and no police punished. : news
"I agree wholeheartedly. This article is also leaving out that Hooks was a vetted military contractor....meaning the Government investigated him thoroughly and he did lots of contracted work. The cops were told by a meth head whom they arrested while breaking into the victims house, that he had bought drugs from the Hooks home before and thats why he was breaking in. So here's a legit business man who had security clearance to enter military bases who got murdered by police because a meth head broke into his house,and the police believe the meth head over the victims own squeeky clean record."
