horsefeathering infuriating garbage vicitm-blaming that serves zero purpose outside of trying to protect a cop.

You KNEW this was the kind of thing they were going to be desperately scouring for and then pouncing on. Who gives a horsefeathers if the guy had some weed in his place?

She's already moved out before any search warrant was issued.

I put the odds at greater than 50% that she and/or the Dallas PD planted horsefeathers. I expect there might be a mysterious firearm that randomly shows up.

This POS has been photographed like 300 times wearing his bulletproof vest outside the courthouse. This is some pathetic PR stunt isn't it? I don't remember seeing many other high profile cases with the defendant wearing a vest every damn day. Is this common?

it's a PR stunt that is easily hand-wavable away by saying "we're just taking all precautions."

I know a former DA who used to take his gun into the courtroom for high-profile murder cases and another who would wear his bullet-proof vest into every hearing involving a gang member.

I'm sure we all remember Betty Shelby (terence crutcher shooting.) When she would be brought into the courtroom, or from the courthouse to her waiting vehicle, she would be flanked full-circle by cops/deputies/security so that photographers couldn't take pictures of her. When I brought it up to the sheriff (who manages the courthouse) he said it was "for her safety because of the death threats." It was perfect - all the [expletive] cops in oakleys standing in front of us preventing any pictures or video were actually heroes, willing to take a (non-existent) bullet to defend Betty Shelby from out of state Black Lives Matter assassins brought into Tulsa by George Soros.

Police said Macklin pulled the woman over at about 1 a.m. on Thursday. During the stop, police said, Macklin forced the woman "to perform a sexual act" while they were both in the woman's car in a parking lot. Police said Macklin was on duty, in uniform and driving a marked police cruiser at the time.

It took me a minute to realize that this gif looped a LOT longer than I thought:

https://splinternews.com/akron-police-c ... 1829906505

In a viral video posted online on Sunday, police officers in Akron, OH, can be seen pinning a purported suspect on the ground, using a Taser and chokeholding on him, and then delivering at least a dozen blows to the man’s body after backup arrived.

The video, which local station WKYC3 reported was filmed on the 300 block of Para Avenue and was first posted on Facebook by user Spenn DeBabii, opens with two officers struggling to get a white man on his stomach. After a brief struggle to flip the man over, one officer used his Taser to stun the man several times on the bare skin of his back, screaming “Roll over!” and telling him, “You’re going to get [the Taser] again,” before eventually wrestling the man onto his stomach.

About two minutes into the video, two other officers sprinted up from an off-camera police car. The larger one sat on the man’s legs and butt and can then be seen delivering at least a dozen blows to the man’s body while the other three officers hold him down. The entire time, the man can be heard groaning.

This is necessary (and terrifying) reading:

https://splinternews.com/the-long-histo ... 1830333632

Just as the the FBI did in 2006, the DHS cast aside internal warnings about white supremacist violence in 2009. That year, former DHS counterterrorism analyst Daryl Johnson was dragged through the mud by conservatives after he published a report on “right-wing extremism.” Johnson, who created his own database while professionally researching white supremacists and neo-Nazis, saw his team dissolved in 2010 after the DHS denounced his findings, Wired reported. “There’ve been no hearings about the rising white supremacist threat, but there’s been a long list of attacks over the last few years. But they still hold hearings about Muslim extremism. It’s out of balance,” Johnson told the magazine in 2012.

The Times details some of the horrors Johnson uncovered while working at the DHS, and how Tea Party Republicans pressured the department to denounce the report, but this also does not amount to a “failure.” It amounts to a federal agency that claims to fight “terrorism” in all its forms caving to political pressure from the right and strategically opting not to pursue Johnson’s concerns. That’s not a broken system, or even neglect; it was political aid to Republicans.

The DHS, like all other policing agencies, was born of racist and reactionary policies, and the insidiousness of this executive department has become all the more obvious under Donald Trump’s eliminationist regime. Trump decided in 2017 to cut $10 million in DHS funding to organizations that counter right-wing extremism, demonstrating both that the agency has an ongoing awareness of right-wing extremism and that it continues to be a low priority.

Joshua Phanco, a Texas prosecutor who once oversaw charges against Texan white supremacist William Fears (Fears fired a gun into a crowd of protesters outside a Richard Spencer event at the University of Florida last October and was arrested on gun charges), lamented to the Times that white supremacist violence is going wholly unchecked. “Nobody’s watching it, nobody’s tracking it. And that’s what’s got me scared,” Phanco told Reitman. But that’s not really true, either. Law enforcement clearly hasn’t made white supremacist violence a priority, but anti-fascist and anti-racist activists have, as have diligent members of the press. Organized wholly separately from and often in hostility to law enforcement, anti-fascist activists in particular have spent years tracking, exposing, and confronting the far right.

It’s plain to see that all levels of police institutions did not miss or fail to see the threat of white nationalist violence. The truth is that what is a threat to marginalized people is not a threat to the police or to the social hierarchies they are sworn to uphold. Fighting for the benefit of the oppressed is just not compatible with the business of policing. How could the people who routinely kill black people and get away with it and guard neo-Nazis at their rallies be tasked with bringing down white supremacists?

Cops and their sympathizers in government and the press will continue to claim ignorance was responsible. But the police—from rookie beat cops all the way up to the FBI—are far too powerful to get away with that. The cops know all about the threat of white nationalism; it’s just rarely been their duty—or their desire—to deal with it. Pretending otherwise only obscures the full threat of white supremacist violence, which includes law enforcement.

Black security guard takes down a shooter in a bar in Chicago and is subsequently killed by police. Shocker, I know.
