Why is the Eric Garner murder video being pulled off YouTube by the NY Daily News?

This is one of the main videos that was shared all over social media, forums, etc.

Biased California D.A Mike Ramos defends Deputy during ongoing investigation into use of force death

This is not a police union head, a retired cop or a fellow cop, this is the man who is tasked with investigating and prosecuting use for force cases in his county.

So much for a unbiased and fair investigation.

This is the case he's referring to.

Dad Dies After Deputies Hit Him With Taser

A father of five died after he was involved in an altercation with deputies who suspected him of burglary.

The Victorville Daily Press reports that Dante Parker, 36, was suspected of attempting to burglarize a Victorville home on Tuesday afternoon.

The person who reported the burglary said the suspect fled on a bicycle and, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's office, Parker was seen riding his bike near the scene.

But a former co-worker of Parker's, who worked as a pressman for the Victoria Daily Press, tells the paper his fellow employee wouldn't steal from anybody.

"That whole story is totally wrong; that’s just not Dante,” Richard Loredo, a former Daily Press pressman who worked with Parker, said Wednesday. “Dante’s not a burglar ... You can see how well his kids were raised; he was a good dad. For the police department to portray him like that is ... unfair.”

NBC Los Angeles reports that, according to authorities, Parker resisted arrest and became "uncooperative and combative," according to police.

It was at that point that the female officer trying to apprehend Parker shocked him with a Taser "multiple times," according to a release obtained by the station.



In the comment section of the same video there is a comment from a person going by the name Ernie Baker, claiming to be a member of the San Bernardino District Attorney's Bureau of Investigation.

Guess who is tasked with investigating use of force cases?

They are so blatant.

All lives matter!

We have groups of mentally ill, racist, rapist and gang member types in the ranks of police departments all around the country MURDERING citizens with impunity. It doesn't matter what your race or gender is, these people are equal opportunity killers who are being protected by the very institutions who are supposed to be protecting US from THEM.

This has to stop NOW!

Michael Nida - Unarmed shot multiple times in the back by a downey cop after he tried to run away

Douglas Zerby - Cops snuck up on him and blew him away without warning just because he was holding a water nozzle.

John Winkler - Stabbed then gunned down by deputies as he was trying to flee his attacker

Frank Mendoza - Gunned down by deputies as he was trying to flee an armed parolee that had just broke into his home

Brian Beaird - Gunned down by LAPD cops as he was surrendering with his hands up.

Jose de la Trinidad - Unarmed and shot 7 times in the back by deputies

Jason Conoscenti - Unarmed, shot multiple times in the back as he was running away. His murder was captured on video.

Levar Edward Jones - Gunned down as he was getting his ID. Thankfully he survived unlike the other cases.

Kelly Thomas - Unarmed, beaten and strangled to death as he cried out for his Dad. The two cops who did it were found not guilty.

Hans Kevin Arellano - Unarmed, shot in the chest after calling a female officer a bitch. His killing was captured on video.

Just to name a few...


Police brutality is out of control.

Cop “For this fucking lunatic? I’m going to shoot him in the penis with a shotgun here in a second”

This is what the murderer of James Boyd, a homeless man said 2 hours before shooting him in the back multiple times.

Yet he still has a badge, gun and is still collecting a salary as we speak.

Watch the full video report and get the full transcript here

Civil rights attorney Shannon Kennedy represents Boyd’s family in a wrongful death suit against APD. Kennedy believes Sandy spelled out his intentions, then carried them out.

“Two hours later he's escalating the situation so he can do just that,” Kennedy said in an exclusive interview with 4 Investigates.

“It's chilling evidence and stunning that he has not been criminally indicted. He says to a state police officer ‘that f'ing lunatic, I'm going to shoot him in the penis. It's crystal clear and he says it with contempt in his voice.’”
In April, APD internal investigators asked Sandy about what he meant by the “shooting in the penis” comment. In an internal investigation transcript, sandy is quoted saying,

"Jokingly, just kind of locker room banter, just told him, you know, ‘Don’t worry. I’ll shoot him in the pecker with this and call it good.’”

But a few minutes later, the transcript shows that Sandy recanted his statement. The investigator asked, “Did you say anything to Chris Ware about shooting him in the pecker?”

Sandy responded, “I don’t…no, I don’t think I did.”

Is this sexual harassment?

0:04 "I'll find your muff, go ahead and take off. Shake yourself, do your muff dance (continued) ...You know thats why women should always wear dresses. So they can shake their muff out"

1:41 "Wow, Leo just commited sexual harassment of an employee live on air"

1:56 "I have gotten in trouble for sexual harassment many times"

3:18 "I'm an old man and I don't think I'm going to change"

3:40 "See this is the problem, is of course you say you don't mind because I could fire you if you said you minded, so that's why its sexual harassment"

This guy was also captured on video berating the same woman when she tried to give her opinion about a piece of the set

The man in both videos is Leo Laporte and he has a radioshow on KFI (a clearchannel station), he also runs a daily tech vlog called TWiT. Back in 2011 he was caught having an affair with an employee when he accidently showed his computer screen during a broadcast. He was married at the time.


It seems he has issues with female employees but is the first video sexual harassment and were his comments offensive against women or victims of sexual harassment or is it just playful banter?

Without accountability cameras won't do jack shit except make the Taser Corp wealthier

And the unintended consequences is people will be less inclined to talk to cops because of the camera in their face and cops are going to become much colder and robotic out of fear that their bosses could use any and every single thing they say from archived footage as leverage to kick them off the force if they don't go along with the program (usually the bosses are the most corrupt and vicious).

OTOH when a cop is doing something really bad they'll just not turn on the camera or make sure the battery doesnt get charged like Mary Hawk's killer did at Albuquerque PD a few months ago or smash the recording device like Officer Vince Mater did in Fullerton. Criminals will always beat whatever system in place.

Body cameras are not an end all solution when it comes to police brutality. If the Kelly Thomas murder didnt wake people up I don't know what will.

We can talk cameras after we talk about accountability.

Officer in Fergison goes on twitter rant; calls protesters thugs, threatens to assault AG Holder

A Velda City police officer who has been part of the militarized police apparatus holding down operations on West Florissant Avenue is spreading lies about Ferguson protesters online.

Sergeant Mike Weston, going by the handle "officeranon2" on Twitter, engaged with users of the social-media network about a tear-gas attack by St. Louis County police on protesters in their own back yard on Monday, August 11. In the conversation, a Twitter user wanted to know why police would fire tear gas at people on their own property. Weston tells them it's because protesters were firing guns from their back yard. But that's not true, as evidenced in the video below.

Daily RFT was in the back yard that was tear-gassed and caught the incident on video. No shots were ever fired anybody in the back yard, and each person had their hands up in protest. Here's that video:

Daily RFT contacted the Velda City Police Department, and Weston confirmed the account was his and explained the allegations he made against Ferguson residents who were attacked with tear gas on their own property.

"I wasn't spreading misinformation," he said. "There were shots being fired some yards, maybe not this particular one."

Weston then admitted that he wasn't in the group of police officers that was marching down the street and firing tear gas into yards. He said he was in the back closer to the command center, several blocks away...
