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...

The St. Ann Police Chief now defending suspended Officer in updated email to press

Source: https://twitter.com/CaseyNolen/status/502234229082947585/

Subject: RE: KSDK phone call

Last night, during one of the many recent
conflicts in Ferguson, a St. Ann officer had
bottles of urine and water thrown on him.

The officer then raised his weapon after seeing a
gun in the crowd, he continued to scan the
area trying to assess the scene. While
assessing the scene he asked several people
including a member of the media to move.

The media person refused to cooperate and in
an attempt to keep the public safe, my officer
used profanity with the public and told the
media person that he was going to kill him if
he didn't move.

We certainly do not condone the verbiage that
was used and the officer will be counseled on
his choice of words.

The officer is suspended without pay until further investigation.

The St. Ann Police Department regrets this
unfortunate situation and hopes for a peaceful
resolution in Ferguson.

Chief Aaron Jimenez
St. Ann Police Department

No blacks or women allowed? Google Workforce Breakdown Shows White Males Dominate At Tech Giant


MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) — Google released a breakdown of the demographics of its workforce for the first time Wednesday.

Google has struggled to diversity its workforce in a sector dominated by white males, which was evident in the breakdown, showing that 70-percent of their total workers are male, and 61-percent are white.

Male workers described as working within Google’s ‘tech’ sector dominated even further, representing 83-percent of those employees.

The Mountain View-based company is a dominating force in the tech industry, attracting the best and brightest, and the breakdown sheds light on the issue of creating a diverse workforce.

6 shot, 2 dead in yet another mass shooting in the US


Two men were killed and at least six people injured in shootings across the city Sunday night and early Monday morning, according to police.

About 1 a.m. this morning, police responded to a report of gunfire in the 5400 block of West Haddon Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood, police said. Officers found a 25-year-old man on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds to the body, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan said.

The man, later identified as Lance Stanton, was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Stanton, who lived in the block where he was shot, was pronounced dead at 1:36 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

In a separate fatal shooting, a 46-year-old man was killed about 8:05 p.m. in the West Side's East Garfield Park neighborhood.

The man, later identified as Aaron Feazell, was shot multiple times in the 3300 block of West Maypole Avenue, authorities said. Feazell, of the 1400 block of S. 10th Avenue in Maywood, was pronounced dead on the scene at 8:25 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.


Sadly there won't be any memorials, debates, discussions or nationwide media attention over these shootings because it happened in a poor black neighborhood and as usual the shooter or shooters will always get away because the police never bothers to look.

Mentally ill man scalded to death in Miami Dade Jail in 2012. No one held accountable as of 2014.


The purported details of Darren Rainey’s last hour are difficult to read.

“I can’t take it no more, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again,’’ he screamed over and over, according to a grievance complaint from a fellow inmate, as Rainey was allegedly locked in a shower with the scalding water turned on full blast.

A 50-year-old mentally ill inmate at the Dade Correctional Institution, Rainey was pulled into the locked shower by prison guards as punishment after defecating in his cell and refusing to clean it up, said the fellow inmate, who worked as an orderly. He was left there unattended for more than an hour as the narrow chamber filled with steam and water.

When guards finally checked on prisoner 060954, he was on his back and dead. His skin was so burned that it had shriveled from his body, a condition referred to as slippage, according to a medical document involving the death.

But nearly two years after Rainey’s death on June 23, 2012, the Miami-Dade medical examiner has yet to complete an autopsy and Miami-Dade police have not charged anyone. The Florida Department of Corrections halted its probe into the matter, saying it could be restarted if the autopsy and police investigation unearth new information.
