What is going on with our police, and where is it headed ?
Off topic for sure, but this only goes to show the hypocrisy of our judicial system. Along time ago I started to write a book and collect information from the internet of the publication and distribution of pornography into the homes and to the children all over the world, by Google, Yahoo, Firefox, Bing. With the click of the mouse by any child, the most disgusting perversions earth has ever seen, can be viewed by anyone. So this guy who texted someone, and they texted back was a consensual exchange. But an accidental click of the mouse can expose any child to pornography and sexual exploitation, in unending volumes. I have always felt, that freedoms would not be infringed upon if payment for access to these sites were charged, at least then, if a child wanted to view this stuff, they would have to make some kind of deliberate action. As it stands right this minute, all of it can be seen by anyone, and cascading pages of it have and can be delivered to anyone whether you clicked for it or not. In the past I have received hundreds of cascaded pages with no way to stop them except unplugging the computer. To me, The search engines are directly involved in the distribution of the worst forms of pornography. I do not mean the human form, I do not view Gods creations as pornographic, but there are forms of use of Gods creations that are. It is an obscene double standard, when those who click on web pages and view them, are charged with a crime, and yet those who provide those pages are free to continue the distribution of them, just one more way, for us to fill up our jails. Just like it is OK to distribute the drugs, it is just not ok to buy them, and before you say that is not true, let me remind you, that the police will sit in their cars for years, watching a distribution network sell drugs, and not touch them.
Your apathy is their justification for their oppression, and your acceptance of their oppression, is your participation in it. When you defend oppression, you are guilty of it.
A protest over deadly police shootings in Albuquerque, N.M., turned from peaceful to “mayhem,” the city’s mayor said late Sunday, as officers in riot gear clashed with demonstrators. Protesting what they say is an increasingly violent police force, hundreds of city residents marched through the streets of Albuquerque on Sunday, blocking traffic and shouting slogans. A social media campaign, which included an apparent hours-long takedown of the Albuquerque Police Department’s (APD) Web page by the activist group Anonymous, coincided with the offline events. But the confrontation between police and protesters escalated, with reports of gas canisters being thrown and Albuquerque police and Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies charging at the crowds, which had mostly dispersed by late Sunday. Richard Berry, the mayor of Albuquerque, said one police officer was injured. At one point, protesters trapped police in a vehicle and tried to break the windows, the Albuquerque Journal reported. Berry didn’t know of any arrests, and multiple messages left for the police department weren’t immediately returned. Video by KRQE-TV showed people being led away in restraints, but it was unclear if those people were arrested. The protests came a little more than a week after a video posted to YouTube by local TV station KQRE showed city police officers fatally shooting James Boyd, a 38-year-old homeless man who they confronted for camping in an unauthorized section of the city’s foothills. The video, which has drawn nearly 900,000 views, was taken by a lapel camera worn by an APD officer, and showed a defiant Boyd talking to police from a distance. At one point an officer throws a flashbang, or stun grenade, at Boyd, who then, according to police, pulled out a knife. Then, several shots are fired into Boyd’s back, and he falls to the ground. Police Chief Gordon Eden added to the controversy when he said the shooting was “justified.” The video and Eden’s defense of the officers prompted harsh words from Albuquerque citizens, rights groups, and some city officials. On Friday, the FBI announced they were investigating the shooting, a move praised by Albuquerque’s mayor. “I think it’s the right thing,” said Mayor Richard Berry. “We need answers as a community. I want answers as a mayor.” But the shooting is only one of many incidents that show the APD is too quick to resort to violence, protesters said. Days after the shooting of Boyd, and hours after a protest against APD, another Albuquerque resident was shot dead by police. APD officers have been involved in 37 shootings, 23 of them fatal, since 2010. There’s no national record of how many times police departments throughout the United States use deadly force, but according to Micah McCoy with the ACLU of New Mexico, Albuquerque’s rate of deadly force rivals that of New York City. New York City is 15 times larger by population than Albuquerque. Tensions between citizens and police were stoked further when the APD announced a new training program earlier this month, which critics say will further emphasize the use of force. In justifying the new program, its director, Jack Jones, said, “Evil has come to the state of New Mexico, evil has come to the Southwest, evil has come to the United States.” The Justice Department launched an investigation into the ADP in 2012, but has yet to issue a report. Protesters say they hope Sunday’s action will highlight the tension that seems to be boiling over in Albuquerque, and put national pressure on the police department to change its ways. “[The police] have very much an us-against-them mentality,” said Metaka Fraser, one of the protesters. “I want them to bring awareness to what they’ve been doing in Albuquerque. It’s just getting worse and worse and worse.”
Terry Ellis There’s no justification for this kind of equipment on the streets of America. There’s no country that I’m aware of that’s poised to invade the United States . plans to use this kind of equipment to subdue the citizens of this country.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Mandalay Bay Resort plans to pay a half-million-dollar fine after employees at an upscale Las Vegas Strip lounge provided prostitutes and drugs to undercover officers. The Nevada Gaming Control Board filed a proposed settlement with the casino this week. It’s awaiting approval by the Nevada Gaming Commission. Authorities say undercover officers bought cocaine, ecstasy and other drugs from employees of the House of Blues Foundation Room over the summer of 2012. Officials say employees also connected officers with four prostitutes and a private room for sex. The sting caught 10 employees and five non-employees engaging in this kind of illegal activity. Two have been arrested, according to Gaming Control Board Enforcement Chief Karl Bennison, and more arrests may be in the works. The arrests were delayed to avoid disruption to the operation. “You’re trying to see how far up the management chain things are being directed,” Bennison said.
Arthur Abott .let the TRUTH be told. The United States Government needs to “Get-Out-Of-The-Drug-Business.” Does it surprise anyone that the United States has the highest prison incarceration rate than any country in the world, and that over 80% of the US prison population is Drug-Related-Offenders! The Vietnam war was about securing the Opium shipments coming out of northern Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Burma. The Panama war was about a falling-out between the United States and President Noriega about the “Cocaine-Shipments” being funneled through Panama into Mexico and the United States. And here we are again in Afghanistan doing the same thing, protecting our (off-the-books) interests with the largest Opium supplier in the world… Afghanistan. What is really happening is a ‘catch 22’ (off-the-books) government operation facilitating the importation of (illegal) drugs as a means of creating a very large US prison population. A government that creates extremely harsh Laws against a proclaimed illegal-substance, who at the same time is also actively involved with the direct-importation and distribution of the illegal substance is the reality of what is happening here in America, and the reason WHY we have the highest incarceration rate in the world…. I couldn’t of said it better myself, but I have said it often, that the largest drug dealer in the world is the United States, not the citizens, but our government, military, and our police forces all of them, local, cia, dea, ice, all of them. Any entity that can watch at a distance, for years, to build a case on someone, is the same as the one doing it. This country will stake out a known drug dealer for years, watching them deal drugs, and all of the dirt that goes along with it. The crimes, the murders, committed by the drug dealers are allowed and watched by our cops. Every single aspect of our legal system is tainted by the selling and distribution of drugs from every possible angle. That is why the legalization of drugs will never happen, because there is too much money to be made by keeping it illegal.
By Doug Keeler Midway Driller Editor Posted Feb. 21, 2014 @ 8:39 am If you like the Humvee the Taft Police Department has, just wait until you see what’s coming next. Its bigger, better and badder – but it’ s not seen a law enforcement tool as much as it is for public safety and rescue. It’s called an MRAP Caiman Cat. 1. “It’s armored, its big, its diesel,” Chief of Police Ed Whiting said. It’s also built on an International Harvester dump truck chassis. It’s also brand new, never having been used in combat or training, the chief said. The MRAP stands for mine resistant ambush protected armored personnel carrier. The city is going to get its hands on one of the armored vehicles, which costs the military about $650,000, for just the cost of having it delivered here from Texas. Whiting told the Taft City council will probably be less than $5,000. Whiting briefed the council on the vehicle and its potential uses for the city. For one thing, it’s not going to be smashing into houses or even out on patrol. “We are not going to use it to intimidate the local citizens into obeying the law,” Whiting said. Whiting said, it will be primarily used in the case of major disaster like an earthquake or hazmat situation. “We hope we never have to use it,” Whiting told the council. The MRAP is sealed for protection against nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, which means its ideal for use in case of a chemical spill. Police in the MRAP could safely reach people trapped or incapacitated from chemicals. In a major disaster like an earthquake the MRAP could be invaluable, doing things the city’s patrol cars couldn’t. “In the event we have a natural disaster like an earthquake, we’re not going to be driving our Crown Vics through the rubble,” Whiting said. The vehicle also has an 18,000-pound winch. Since it is protected against mines and small arms fire, it could be used for rescue of injured people trapped in the line of fire during a shootout. The armored vehicle will have a 12-volt electrical system compatible with police radios and other gear, and a heavy-duty air conditioning system. Whiting said police have one bid for $4,900 to bring the vehicle out to Taft and think they may be able to do it even cheaper.

The recent and past and future postings of police brutality, are there to show, that the attitude of the police toward the common people has shifted. When I grew up, the police were our friend, they didn’t lock up someone that had too much to drink, they loaded them into the squad car and drove them home. They were the reason that we all slept well at night because we knew they were there to protect us. It was a real good feeling when ever we had the opportunity to help them in something, to be able to participate in some small way a civic duty. they knew where everyone lived, and who we all belonged too.
It is very different now, do not make the mistake of thinking that the police are your friend, because they are not. These videos are here to expose the attitude of the police in these days, they are no longer the friend of the people but the enemy, and they view you as the enemy as well. Police now shoot and tazer people for just looking at them wrong, literally, as one of the videos shows. Another video shows a couple just asking for directions, and it turned violent. We have had six policeman in our family, I am not anti law enforcement by any means, but these are the facts, look at them, do not just brush these videos off. Why do you need to look at them ??
Because you are going to have an encounter with law enforcement, in a very unjust way. You cannot escape it. And when this happens I want you to be prepared on how to behave, so that you can endure it without getting the hell beat out of you or shot dead. They are not playing, they will shoot you dead. What is about to happen is an event that the world has never experienced before, and no one is going to know what is going on, what is actually happening, not you, and certainly not the police. I have been telling you what is about to happen, why it is going to happen and what the outcome is going to be, but all evidence is, that you are not listening, except for Dennis, Eve, and Rebecca. The police will be just following orders blindly, without thought or reasoning, do not assume that you will be able to reason with the police in those days, they are being trained from their youth, to be robots, who only obey their masters. They used to be our children, before the schools took over their minds. It is disturbing to watch the police videos, and that is a good thing in this case because you need to be disturbed.
I post some things about food, to show that we are being poisoned by our food, and have been for decades. I remember the controversy about MSG in the sixty’s, today the label says, no msg’s, but in reality, there is 15 times the amount as the 60’s and in some cases much higher. Take a look at the folks of Wall Mart, or any mall, and you will see the results of MSG, it is the main cause of diabetes, just one more way to make money, and kill off the population while you are doing it. The infusion of MSG into our food supply is deliberate, and taste is the decoy. The False Flag.
Some beautiful photos are a reminder, that as bad as things are going to get, the end will look like that, because all of the things that are going to happen, God promised to bring about, and as we watch them unfold, we can be confident that he will complete all of his promise. He will get rid of money, he will get rid of religion, and he will get rid of all governments, and establish His. Watch for it in that order.

Something caught my eye the other day: Pat Robertson, the high priest of the religious right, had some startling things to say about drugs.
“I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Mr. Robertson said in a recent interview. “I’ve never used marijuana and I don’t intend to, but it’s just one of those things that I think. This war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.”
The reason Robertson is for legalizing marijuana is that it has created a prison problem in America that is well beyond what most Americans imagine.
“It’s completely out of control,” Mr. Robertson said. “Prisons are being overcrowded with juvenile offenders having to do with drugs. And the penalties – the maximums – some of them could get 10 years for possession of a joint of marijuana. It makes no sense at all.”
Read: America needs a 2-page tax code.
He’s right. Here are the numbers: The total number of Americans under correctional supervision (prison, parole, etc.) is 7.1 million, more than the entire state of Massachusetts. Adam Gopnik writes in the New Yorker, “Over all, there are now more people under ‘correctional supervision’ in America…than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height.”
No other country comes even close to our rates of incarceration. We have 760 prisoners per 100,000 people. Most European countries have one seventh that number (per capita, so it’s adjusted for population). Even those on the high end of the global spectrum – Brazil and Poland – have only a quarter the number we do.
If you say this is some kind of enduring aspect of America’s “Wild West” culture, you would be wrong. In 1980, our rates of incarceration were a quarter what they are now. What changed was the war on drugs and the mindless proliferation of laws that created criminal penalties for anything and everything. If you don’t believe me, listen to Pat Roberston again. Here’s a quote:
“We here in America make up 5% of the world’s population, but we make up 25% of jailed prisoners….We have now over 3,000 – the number must be might higher than that – but over 3,000 federal crimes, and every time the liberals pass a bill – I don’t care what it involves – they stick criminal sanctions on it. They don’t feel there is any way people are going to keep a law unless they can put them in jail…. So we have the jails filled with people who are white collar criminals.
In the past two decades, the money that states spend on prisons has risen at six times the rate of spending on higher education. In 2011, California spent $9.6 billion on prisons, versus $5.7 billion on higher education. Since 1980, California has built one college campus; it’s built 21 prisons. The state spends $8,667 per student per year. It spends about $50,000 per inmate per year.

Why is this happening? Prisons are a big business. Most are privately run. They have powerful lobbyists and they have bought most state politicians. Meanwhile, we are bankrupting out states and creating a vast underclass of prisoners who will never be equipped for productive lives.
I never thought I’d say this, but God bless you, Pat Robertson.
