US Department of Homeland Security developing system to predict criminal intent
engadget.com ^ | Oct. 8, 2011 | Donald Melanson
Posted on October 9, 2011 10:40:09 PM EDT by Free ThinkerNY

We're not exactly lacking in opportunities for Minority Report references these days, but sometimes they're just unavoidable.

According to a new report from CNET based on documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the US Department of Homeland security is now working on a system dubbed FAST (or Future Attribute Screening Technology) that's designed to identify individuals who are most likely to commit a crime.

That's not done with something as simple as facial recognition and background checks, however, but rather algorithms and an array of sensors and cameras that can detect both physiological and behavioral cues that are said to be "indicative of mal-intent."

What's more, while the DHS says that it has no plans to actually deploy the system in public just yet, it has apparently already conducted a limited trial using DHS employees -- though no word on the results of how well it actually works, of course.

A former NYPD narcotics detective snared in a corruption scandal testified it was common practice to fabricate drug charges against innocent people to meet arrest quotas.

The bombshell testimony from Stephen Anderson is the first public account of the twisted culture behind the false arrests in the Brooklyn South and Queens narc squads, which led to the arrests of eight cops and a massive shakeup.

(snip)

The city paid $300,000 to settle a false arrest suit by Jose Colon and his brother Maximo, who were falsely arrested by Anderson and Tavarez. A surveillance tape inside the bar showed they had been framed.

A federal judge presiding over the suit said the NYPD's plagued by "widespread falsification" by arresting officers.

FBI begins recording call-ins (talk radio)
wnd ^ | October 14, 2011 | Kathy Shaidle




Next time you call a talk radio station, beware: The FBI may be listening.

According to WMAL.com, "The FBI has awarded a $524,927 contract to a Virginia company to record as much radio news and talk programming as it can find on the Internet. …

The FBI says it is not playing Big Brother by policing the airwaves, but rather seeking access to what airs as potential evidence." The agency's reasons for recording all these radio programs don't get any clearer as the news report goes on. No doubt that is intentional.

Justice Department Silent on Pornography Found on Assistant U.S. Attorney’s Computer
Grassley senate.gov ^ | october 14, 2011 | Chuck Grassley
Posted on October 15, 2011 1:52:15 PM EDT by opentalk

WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley today said that 100 days after he sent a letter to the Justice Department questioning why the department declined to prosecute an assistant United States attorney after the Inspector General found that the attorney had spent hours online viewing adult content during work hours, he still has not received a response.

According to the Inspector General, the Assistant U.S. Attorney acknowledged he had spent a significant amount of time each day viewing pornography, including one case of child pornography. The report indicates that the U.S. Attorney’s office declined to prosecute the case.

Grassley said his staff has contacted the department several times since the letter was sent, but has yet to receive an official response from the Justice Department.

In a July 7, 2011 letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, Grassley questioned the department’s decision to not prosecute and delay disciplinary action against the attorney. He also asked the types of cases the attorney worked on and the steps the department has taken to update its technology to keep pornography off its computers. Grassley said he’s looking to be sure these types of activities are stopped in the future.

Last year, Grassley learned that 33 employees at the Securities and Exchange Commission who were found to have viewed pornography during work hours were not terminated and were given uneven and light disciplinary action.

Wrong Door Raid and Flash-Bang Grenade Heart Attack Provoke Lawsuits
Reason ^ | October 13, 2011 | Lucy Steigerwald
Posted on October 18, 2011 11:44:26 PM EDT by Immerito

A few victims of the drug war's "standard procedure" are fighting back in court. First, a Colorado Springs woman who suffered a heart attack during a raid has brought a lawsuit:

Rose Ann Santistevan, 71, is suing for medical expenses and noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering.

An emphysema sufferer, Santistevan was alone in bed receiving oxygen on Oct. 6, 2009, when a multijurisdictional SWAT task force with a search warrant surrounded her home in the 200 block of South Prospect Street. They threw in a flash-bang grenade before rushing in with guns drawn, authorities have confirmed.

Stricken by a heart attack, Santistevan was admitted in critical condition at Memorial Hospital Central, where she remained for several days. A search of her home yielded no arrests and turned up no drugs, the family said.

Jawbreaker justice
bostonherald.com ^ | 10/21/2011 | Michael Graham




If the Occupy Boston movement has you convinced that America’s 20-somethings are spoiled brats waiting for someone else to solve all their problems, meet Anthony McKay of Swampscott.

McKay was at home celebrating his 29th birthday with his family when he heard someone outside breaking into his truck. While his wife called police, McKay confronted the would-be robber, who happened to be a druggie known in the neighborhood for carrying a knife.

McKay caught the robber, foiled the crime and — as an added bonus — broke the druggie’s jaw during their scuffle. It’s what I like to call “good news all around.”

And what is McKay’s reward for not being the guy who closes his door? For stepping up and doing the right thing?

He’s facing jail time, charged with assault and battery.

It seems the Swampland police plan to make an example of this solid citizen.

Police Sgt. Tim Cassidy told The Daily Item that citizens should leave the protection of your property and family to the police . . . period. “We don’t urge anybody to (fight back),” he said. “We want them to call us.”

The message from the cops is clear: If someone wants to rob you or your wife or kids, let ’em!

At least 93 Milwaukee police officers have been disciplined for violating law
Milwaukee J-S ^ | 23 oct 2011 | Gina Barton
Posted on October 23, 2011 8:24:25 AM EDT by rellimpank

At least 93 Milwaukee police officers - ranking from street cop to captain - have been disciplined for violating the laws and ordinances they were sworn to uphold, a Journal Sentinel investigation found.

Their offenses range from sexual assault and domestic violence to drunken driving and shoplifting, according to internal affairs records. All still work for the Police Department, where they have the authority to make arrests, testify in court and patrol neighborhoods.

Officers who run afoul of the law often aren't fired or prosecuted, the newspaper found. Consider:

At least six officers disciplined by the department for illegal behavior suffered no legal consequences whatsoever. One was Reginald Hampton, accused of sexually assaulting two women he met on duty. Another was Mark Kapusta, suspended after a woman said he pointed a gun at her head during a drunken road-rage incident. Neither officer was charged or ticketed.

Twenty-three officers got breaks from prosecutors that allowed them to avoid being convicted of serious charges - or any charges at all - as long as they didn't commit more crimes and followed prosecutors' instructions. One was Patrick Fuhrman, originally charged with a felony for a beating that sent his wife to the hospital and, according to a witness, left blood in every room of their house. A conviction on that charge could have gotten him fired from the department, banned from carrying a gun for life and imprisoned for 3½ years. Instead, he ended up with two tickets for disorderly conduct.

NYPD Officers Charged With Gun Running
Friends of Ours ^ | 10/25/11 | Friends of Ours
Posted on October 25, 2011 9:13:20 AM EDT by AtlasStalled

Eight current and former NYPD officers have been arrested "on federal charges including gun trafficking and conspiracy to smuggle cigarettes" as reported by William K. Rashbaum for The New York Times: "the charges allege that the officers — five are still on the force and three are retired — were involved in smuggling more than a dozen illegal handguns as well as M-16 rifles and shotguns, the people briefed on the case said."

It's been a rough month for the NYPD.

Earlier this month a former detective testified at the corruption trial of a fellow officer that "it was common practice to fabricate drug charges against innocent people to meet arrest quotas" in the Brooklyn South and Queens narcotic squads as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News, and a Bronx grand jury indicted seventeen cops for their alleged roles in a wide-spread ticket-fixing ring within as reported by Erin Einhorn and Rocco Parascandola for the Daily News.

Hundreds of union members back 16 NYPD cops in court over 'huge traffic ticket scam'
dailymail ^ | 10.28.11
Posted on October 28, 2011 10:22:49 PM EDT by InvisibleChurch

Hundreds of police union members turned up outside court today to support 16 New York policemen charged with abusing their authority by helping family and friends avoid paying traffic tickets.

The 13 officers, two sergeants, one lieutenant and five others were arraigned in a Bronx court on Friday after handing themselves in last night following a mammoth city investigation.

But union members made their voice heard by clogging the street near the courthouse, filling the hallways near the arraignment room and applauding in court after the officers left.

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said ticket fixing was sanctioned at the highest levels of the department, and he vowed that when the dust settled, they would prove it.

'Taking care of your family, taking care of your friends is not a crime,' he said. 'To take a courtesy and turn it into a crime is wrong.' The case began with a 2009 internal probe into Bronx officer Jose Ramos, who was suspected of associating with a drug dealer, officials said.

While listening to the NYPD officer's phone, investigators allegedly heard calls from people seeing if he could fix tickets for them. Ramos has been working for the department for nearly 18 years. He and his wife were arrested at their home on Thursday night. All other 15 policemen turned themselves in, reported the New York Post.

Officers Jeer at Arraignment of 16 Colleagues in Ticket-Fixing Investigation
New York Times ^ | October 28, 2011 | N. R. KLEINFIELD and JOHN ELIGON
Posted on October 29, 2011 8:41:02 PM EDT by Immerito

A three-year investigation into the police’s habit of fixing traffic and parking tickets in the Bronx ended in the unsealing of indictments on Friday and a stunning display of vitriol by hundreds of off-duty officers, who converged on the courthouse to applaud their accused colleagues and denounce their prosecution.

As 16 police officers were arraigned at State Supreme Court in the Bronx, incensed colleagues organized by their union cursed and taunted prosecutors and investigators, chanting “Down with the D.A.” and “Ray Kelly, hypocrite.”

As the defendants emerged from their morning court appearance, a swarm of officers formed a cordon in the hallway and clapped as they picked their way to the elevators. Members of the news media were prevented by court officers from walking down the hallway where more than 100 off-duty police officers had gathered outside the courtroom.

Uh, I already clearly demonstrated you were a liar and the cops did not do shit.  Better go back and read tool.

You decided to claim "bad memory".  Roll Eyes

I have no idea who went after these cops and doubt you do either.  But, maybe when I have some free time I'll look into it.

In my self defense class tonight I got the whole skinny from a cop in the Bronx in one of the precincts.  Told me five of the cops are in his precinct and detail.   Hve known this guy for about 6 years. 

here is what happened - cop who was on the take from a drug dealer got caught on a wiretap fixing a ticket.   From there the whole thing unraveled.   


cops did not uncover this, it was a dirty cop taking from the dealers that led to this.

So one bad cop decided to roll.  I'm guessing to get his sentence reduced or plea bargain?

on another thread there is video of an officer arresting another officer for speeding and reckless driving.
