Fucking Cops: Volume II

Fucking Cops: Volume II
Having noticed that the Fucking Cops thread has hit 2000 replies I figured that was enough and so have moved on to Volume 2. 

Here is the link to the original thread if anyone wants to take a trip down memory lane.

http://atheistforums.org/thread-19650.html


So to begin, the implication here is crystal clear.

Quote:More police prosecuted in 2015 than in past decade, zero convictions to date

Now, when the cops are being charged the "investigations" seem to take forfuckingever so maybe we should be looking at indictments from 2012-13 to see if anything is actually happening....but I suspect the author nails it here, when he notes:

Quote:Between prosecutors who don't truly want convictions of police officers and laws which seem to protect police at all costs, it's a bit futile to get your hopes up.


Maybe I'm wrong....but we'll see.

Quote:Pay for your ankle bracelet or go to jail: The latest in criminal justice privitazation

Quote:Green was living on $900 a month, but was charged a $179.50 set-up fee, plus $9.25 a day to wear the device. In other words, the device ended up costing him half his monthly income that first month, and a third of his income every month after.
What's next?  Charging prisoners rent for their cells?

Shit, this thread is going to fill up fast at this rate.

Quote:Man who faked prescription shot and killed by Baltimore County police
Quote:Described by some onlookers as "a kid," Baltimore County Police Department officers chased, shot, and killed a young man who they claim attempted to fake a prescription at a local pharmacy. A police spokesperson said it was unknown whether he was armed or not but hours after the September 23 incident, investigators had yet to discover a weapon.

Quote:Whatever the case, passing a forged prescription is a rather petty, non-violent crime in America. In Maryland, it appears to be a misdemeanor and often doesn't even warrant jail time.

Except when some cop gets a hard-on.  Then its a capital crime.

A Christian told me: if you were saved you cant lose your salvation. you're sealed with the Holy Ghost

I replied: Can I refuse? Because I find the entire concept of vicarious blood sacrifice atonement to be morally abhorrent, the concept of holding flawed creatures permanently accountable for social misbehaviors and thought crimes to be morally abhorrent, and the concept of calling something "free" when it comes with the strings of subjugation and obedience perhaps the most morally abhorrent of all... and that's without even going into the history of justifying genocide, slavery, rape, misogyny, religious intolerance, and suppression of free speech which has been attributed by your own scriptures to your deity. I want a refund. I would burn happily rather than serve the monster you profess to love.

Thanks, Rock.

Thanks, Rock.

It's not in the article, but in Missouri, many counties are sending prisoners a "bill" for each day they stayed in the county jails... of course, in prison, they cannot work except at $40/month (max!) jobs, so the bill follows them back on the street, and may result in their reincarceration. While in prison, it means that whatever money they do earn (minus $5/month for soap, toothpaste, etc) is taken from their pay and sent to the county. It also means that if you fight your case, which may result in a minimum stay of 8 months (Speedy Trial limit in Missouri) or more likely a year or two (since Public Defenders in this state have the right to wave your Speedy Trial rights for you, and usually do because they're so swamped with cases, then tell you about it later), putting pressure on the defendant to plead out quickly so they don't stack up a bill. 

I filed cases on behalf of some of the inmates, claiming the practice is unconstitutional as a violation of Equal Protection, but none of them had made it to the appeals court ruling stage (local courts always shoot down the first round of inmate petitions, requiring an appeal, which has a "filing fees" of $90 at each level of court applied to, so $270 in total, not counting xerox copies and stamps to mail the numerous copies required to apply) by the time I got out.

I think there's enough evidence here to call this thread, 'fucking cops, lawyers and judges.'
I'm only facetious because I like to use all the vowels at once, in order.

Somehow I'm not surprised that people are being charged for being put in a cage.

Agreed but didn't want things to get complicated.  There are plenty of examples of criminal DAs, prison guards, etc.

I'm not prepared to give the fuckers the benefit of the doubt.

So the guy shot himself and the cops decided to finish him off?

Or is that the story they are trying to go with to see if it flies?

I can't tell much from the video.  Someone can probably enhance it.
