Security theater as always. Alas, their incompetence will mean they will implement even more invasive and dystopian procedures that are unlikely to detect or prevent anything.

TSA fails most tests in latest undercover operation at US airports

In recent undercover tests of multiple airport security checkpoints by the Department of Homeland Security, inspectors said screeners, their equipment or their procedures failed more than half of the time, according to a source familiar with the classified report.

When ABC News asked the source familiar with the report if the failure rate was 80 percent, the response was, “You are in the ballpark.”

A unit chief in the FBI's international terrorism sector having his expensive watch and firearm stolen by "exotic dancers" while being so incapacitated from drinking that he couldn't even make a phone call or file a report... All this while on a "training" trip.

I've been on many a training trip. When it is classroom or seminar training it's not unusual for attendees to have a good time, have some drinks, and if lucky, find a good Karaoke bar with a great sound system. however, if I or one of my colleagues, did what this person did, it would likely cost our job as well it should. A huge demonstration of lack of good judgement, ethics, etc. Now a FBI gun is on the street.. he also placed himself in a position of being blackmailed if he were married. It's crap like this that pisses me off. Agencies need to do a better job policing themselves.. I'll bet this aint his first rodeo

Cop Road Rages on Innocent Man for Honking at Him, Calls In Backup to Punish Him

St. Louis, MO — When normal citizens lose their cool in an act of road rage, they either let it go and move on or face the consequences of their actions. However, if a police officer flips out in a fit of road rage, they can claim legal authority to ticket, kidnap, cage, or kill you. An incident involving Detective Steve Burle, from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, just so happens to illustrate this predicament quite well.

Last week, computer programmer Scott Smith was sitting at a red light. When it turned green, the person in front of him refused to move forward. Doing what anyone in his situation would’ve done—given a reasonable amount of time to move—Smith politely honked his horn to alert the man in front of him that the light was green.

As the man in front of him refused to move his vehicle, the honking became more progressive.

“The light turned green and the car in front of me just sat there,” Smith says. “So I honked once and he started to scoot forward, then just like hit his brakes real hard. So I honked again and he started to go forward and kinda threw his arms up, but wasn’t really moving, still just blocking the way. So then I just laid on the horn for a minute as he slowly crept forward, and then right as he got through the intersection he kinda pulled into the far left lane of Tucker.”

The cop then pulled Smith over.

“Is your fucking horn stuck, smartass?” detective Burle asks Smith in the video.

“Is your brake stuck?” Smith replies.

“Let me see your drivers’ license.”

“For what?” Smith asks. “For honking at someone who’s sitting at a green light. This is fucking ridiculous.”

“I’m sorry, what’d you just say?” demands Burle as he seemingly takes issue with Smith’s choice of vocabulary.

“I said this is fucking ridiculous,” Smith repeats.

“Well, you know what, maybe you shouldn’t be a fucking asshole,”
Burle says.

“You’re sitting at a green light. I have to go back to work.”

“Really,” Burle answers. “I hope you’re not in a hurry. You’re going to be late for a little while, fucking jackoff,” responds this public servant.

A second cop then shows up and Smith recalls hearing them talk about trying to find something wrong with Smith’s actions so they could ticket the innocent motorist.

“You could tell he was just trying to find something wrong — he wanted a reason to be able to do something, ticket, get me out of the car,” Smith says.

A third cop then showed up to back up this officer’s fit of road rage. All three officers—on the taxpayers’ dime—then proceed to hold Smith on the side of the road for over 45 minutes until Burle walked back to the car and told Smith he’d be getting a ticket in the mail.

“A traffic violation shouldn’t end up with 40 minutes on the side of the road with you being an angry prick yelling at me through the window,” Smith says. “If I violated some violation, just give me my ticket and send me on my way.

“I really was on my way back to work,” Smith continues. “I was already late; I had two co-workers with me. It was just like, ‘Dude, whoever you are, just get the hell out of the way. Quit being an asshole just because I honked at you.'”

As Patch.com reports, the department has launched an Internal Affairs investigation related to the incident, and Smith has said he plans to file a formal complaint.

However, we won’t be holding our breath to see if this cop is held accountable.

Burle has a history of abuse and has been sued at least three times for excessive use of force, and he reportedly liked a racist Facebook post in July 2016 that cost a Fox 2 reporter his job and led to calls for the firing of Police Lt. Jerry Foster, who originally wrote the post, according to Patch.

Ironically—and, frankly, quite frighteningly— Burle is part of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s Force Investigation Unit, which was created after the death of Michael Brown. This cop who called in backup and ticketed a man for honking at him while calling him a “fucking jackoff” is responsible for investigating police officer-involved shootings in the city. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of the corruption and tyranny of the thin blue line.

Nevada Pardons Wrongfully Convicted Man Featured in Our Story

Quote
Steese, a young, poorly educated drifter, was arrested in 1992 for the grisly murder of Gerard Soules, a Las Vegas performer with a costumed poodle act at the Circus Circus casino. At the time of Soules’ death, Steese was several states away. But prosecutors didn’t reveal that they had evidence that Steese was telling the truth, instead telling jurors that Steese had fabricated his alibi with the help of his look-alike brother. During the trial, the prosecutors also concealed the nature of several photo lineups pointing to Steese’s innocence and accused the defense of manufacturing evidence.

Steese was convicted in 1995 and sentenced to two life sentences. The men who prosecuted him, Bill Kephart and Doug Herndon, are now district court judges in Las Vegas.

Rival gangs fighting?

Detroit police officers fight each other in undercover operation gone wrong

Quote
Sources say it started when two special ops officers from the 12th Precinct were operating a "push off" on Andover near Seven Mile. That is when two undercover officers pretend to be dope dealers, waiting for eager customers to approach, arresting potential buyers and seizing their vehicles.

But this time instead of customers - special ops officers from the 11th Precinct showed up. Not realizing they were fellow officers, they ordered the other undercover officers to the ground.

FOX 2 is told the rest of the special ops team from the 12th Precinct showed up, and officers began raiding the drug house in the 19300 block of Andover. But instead of fighting crime, officers from both precincts began fighting with each other.

Sources say guns were drawn and punches were thrown while the homeowner stood and watched. The department's top cops were notified along with Internal Affairs. One officer was taken to the hospital.

Is there freedom of speech in the US?

A "sheriff" in Texas posted a picture on Facebook of a truck that has a sticker saying "Fuck Trump and fuck you for voting for him".



He then added the following:
Quote
I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it.

Why are the taxpayers paying for the crimes of this violent serial abuser?

Cop Caught on Video THREE Times Killing & Beating Unarmed & Innocent People—Still has Job

Austin, TX — Last week, the taxpayers of Austin, Texas were forced—for their third time—to pay for the violent actions of officer Eric Copeland of the APD. City council members approved a six-figure settlement to be given to one of many of Copeland’s victims.

This officer’s abuse is so rampant that it has been captured on video a whopping three times. The latest case, which cost the taxpayers $150,000, stems from the arrest of Adrian Aguado, 20, who Copeland tasered for no reason and broke his nose.

[...]

For needlessly tasering a man who had committed no crime Copeland was not fired. Instead, he was given a 90-day vacation and was allowed back on the force.

[...]

In 2012, Copeland pulled over Bradley who then made the unwise decision to flee in his vehicle. After he stopped, a brief foot chase ensued before Copeland “intentionally struck Bradley in the face, head and body at a time when Bradley had not assaulted Copeland,” according to a lawsuit filed by Bradley’s family.

Copeland then shot Bradley in the chest three times, killing him. Bradley was unarmed. A judge later awarded Bradley’s family $1,000,000 for the death.

“I’m gonna fucking shoot you,” Copeland is heard saying on the video multiple times before three shots were fired, killing Bradley. Copeland was subsequently cleared of any wrongdoing.

[...]

It’s not only suspects who Copeland has abused or killed either. In 2011, a federal jury awarded Carlos Chacon $1,000,000 after Copeland and another officer, Russell Rose, beat and tasered him. Chacon had called 911 to report suspicious activity at a Motel 6, he had done nothing wrong.

While he was still on the phone with 911, Chacon approached the officers to assist them in their investigation. Instead of talking to Chacon, however, Copeland and another officer drew their weapons and pointed them at Chacon.

“Their guns were drawn, pointed at me. They were shouting at me. They were cursing at me. I was trying to identify myself as a person that called the police. They did not listen or engage in the conversation,” Chacon told Fox7 at the time.

Officers then proceeded to beat, taser, and then arrest Chacon for resisting arrest.

“What I did is, as a good citizen, is I called the police and I reported it. I identified myself fully with a description of my vehicle and myself. I stayed on the phone the whole time with the operator and I waited for the police to arrive,” he explained.

In spite of the jury awarding him $1 million, the judge, likely sympathetic to brutal cops, reduced the amount to $60,000. Austin City Council members then increased it and the taxpayers shelled out $154,000.

Why aren't the prosecutors and the cops sent to prison for at least 29 years?

Man in prison for 29 years freed after Cook County prosecutors drop charges

Last month Judge Joseph Claps tossed out Brown’s conviction and ordered a retrial after concluding that prosecutors at a second trial in 2008 had made multiple false arguments to the jury and that Brown’s lawyer later failed to raise those issues on appeal.

[..]

Prosecutors repeatedly told the jury that Chicago police found the gas can used in the arson after speaking to Brown, strongly implying that only Brown’s confession could have led them to the discovery.

But a Chicago police detective testified at the first trial that the gas can had been discovered near the video store that had been torched — well before the detective had spoken to Brown, Claps noted in his ruling.

[..]

At his first court appearance, a judge ordered him held without bail after prosecutors announced they would seek the death penalty. Brown collapsed in the middle of the courtroom, according to a Tribune story at the time.

Brown, who did odd jobs and maintenance work for stores around the neighborhood, testified at his first trial in 1990 that he got a call the night of the fire about the video store being burglarized. Brown, who had installed front and back doors with burglar bars at the video store, testified that he went to secure a door of the building and then left, court documents show.

Brown was arrested a short time later, and police beat him into confessing, he testified at his first trial.

Based largely on his alleged confession, Brown was convicted and given the life sentence.

Years later, another man, James Bell, confessed to the arson, leading to Brown being granted a second trial. At the 2008 retrial, Bell, testifying for the defense, said Brown owed him money, so he decided to break into the video store, thinking Brown owned it. But he found only a few dollars in change.

Bell testified he decided to torch the store in retribution, according to court documents.

But a jury found Bell’s testimony unconvincing. Prosecutors had alleged that the two colluded to fabricate the story while both were in prison together. Brown was again convicted of the double murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Just 27 months does not seem enough for such a deranged and violent criminal.

Cop Sentenced to Prison, Forced to Pay Victim for Savagely Beating a Teen on Video

Pittsburgh, PA — A belligerent and violent cop was recently convicted of violating the civil rights of a teenager by savagely beating him at a high school football game. The entire incident, which looks like a giant bullying a small child, was captured on video and led to the initial firing of officer Stephen Matakovich, 48, and the subsequent charges.

Matakovich “was an annoyed bully who beat the crap out of a drunk kid,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Gilson told jurors earlier this year after his conviction. “This was an officer abusing his power.”

Wednesday, the officer received an unprecedented 27-month sentence and will also be forced to pay restitution to his victim from his own pocket.

Matakovich’s defense attorneys had argued against imprisonment, saying he had led an “honorable and lawful life,” according to KDKA.

But the pre-sentence report detailed a pattern of questionable arrests involving Matakovich over several years, and states that he “never used the lowest amount of force available.”

The victim’s mother took the stand during the hearing and told the court how she hopes Matakovich will be sent to prison.

“It’s hard watching your son being beaten like that. We teach our children to respect police officers then this happens and I think it’s just a blemish on the Pittsburgh police, on all police,” Sherry Despres said.

Matakovich was on trial for two charges, the first being the violation of Gabriel Despres’ civil rights and the second accusing him of falsifying the police report on the incident. Somehow he was acquitted on the second charge, convincing the jury that he did not lie about or exaggerate Despres’ actions which caused the officer to push and hit him.

Matakovich said he had to beat the small teenager at that time because he felt threatened. After watching the video, this claim becomes utterly hysterical. However, somehow a jury bought it.

Naturally, the violent officer’s defense team painted him as the victim, claiming that Despres’ posture and demeanor at that time were threatening to Matakovich, who was surrounded by five security guards and in spite of the teen being unarmed and inebriated.

According to WTAE, lead defense attorney Tina Miller, a former federal prosecutor, told the jury that dissecting the 29-second encounter in a one-week trial was unfair to Matakovich, who could be trusted for the “split-second” judgment he made.

“Nobody is going to say to a police officer, ‘I’m going to assault you,'” Miller told the jury. “You’re not going to advertise what you’re going to do. Your actions are going to be subtle. It’s not going to be like some poster or (TV commercial).”

She defended Matakovich as “one of those guys on that thin blue line between chaos and order” before asking the jury, “Do we really want to second-guess?”

The prosecution even responded in jest at the outright silly claims of the defense in trying to justify this crazed cop’s violence.

As the video shows, Despres calmly stood with his arms down at his sides when Matakovich suddenly shoved the teen to the ground and began punching him in the head. Although Despres did not provoke the attack and did not appear to fight back, the off-duty cop repeatedly struck him while several other security guards watched.

Treated for a bloody nose, Despres eventually pleaded guilty to trespassing and public drunkenness. After watching the video of the incident, Pittsburgh Police Chief Cameron McLay fired Matakovich and opened an investigation that led to his state trial.

In an attempt to establish the ex-cop’s history of violence, county prosecutors introduced a motion during the proceedings detailing Matakovich’s use of unnecessary force against 56 other people and another case in which he assaulted a security guard then arrested him on false charges.

Out of those 56 reports, 20 cases involved strikes to the face and head, with 17 of those resulting in injuries including broken noses, broken jaws and loss of consciousness.

According to the prosecution and video footage, Matakovich brutalized innocent people and arrested them on false charges in order to cover up his own violent provocations. Luckily, video evidence of this cop’s rage finally put an end to his rash of belligerence.

Matakovich’s sentence should be held as the standard for cops who abuse their authority and attack innocent people. If enough cops are sent to jail and forced to pay for their own crimes themselves, rest assured police brutality would be far less common.

Sorry to disagree on such a page where disagreement is viewed so harshly but yeah, I'm here to say based on personal experience that there are people who gladly tell you they are about to kick your ass. However, verbal threats are in my opinion, red flags that should be used to increase your awareness and allow you to anticipate physical violence, it is not a reason to initiate physical violence. And according to the article this officer had a history of over reacting. Based on that, the sentence sounds fair, but Miller is an idiot if he or she thinks people truly don't verbalize what they are about to do. It happens, more often than not

Sadly it appears he got away with at least 56 violent attacks

He'd likely still be a public threat if not for that video
It's unfortunate that so many had to suffer before he was stopped

Yet again proves there is something amiss with vetting & scrutiny of cop conduct
It doesn't instill confidence in the police service

In an attempt to establish the ex-cop’s history of violence, county prosecutors introduced a motion during the proceedings detailing Matakovich’s use of unnecessary force against 56 other people and another case in which he assaulted a security guard then arrested him on false charges.

Out of those 56 reports, 20 cases involved strikes to the face and head, with 17 of those resulting in injuries including broken noses, broken jaws and loss of consciousness.

According to the prosecution and video footage, Matakovich brutalized innocent people and arrested them on false charges in order to cover up his own violent provocations. Luckily, video evidence of this cop’s rage finally put an end to his rash of belligerence.

Matakovich’s sentence should be held as the standard for cops who abuse their authority and attack innocent people. If enough cops are sent to jail and forced to pay for their own crimes themselves, rest assured police brutality would be far less common.

Matakovich said he had to beat the small teenager at that time because he felt threatened. After watching the video, this claim becomes utterly hysterical. However, Somehow A JURY Bought It.

Indeed, and had that young man pushed the cop in a similar fashion he'd end up in prison for way more than just 27 months.

Correct - Had a similar kind of thing happen to me
My son was knocked over by a car not far from where we live
when i got to the scene I was confronted with an asshole cop
demanding i be calm & he ran at me & tried to shove me in the chest  Roll Eyes
So I shoved Him back only he landed on his arse then I was CS gas Sprayed
& attacked by Him & his 4 other Girlfriends - They were unable to hold or handcuff me
Situation was escalating Thankfully my wife arrived & calmed them & me down.
Then I was handcuffed & arrested.
We later put a formal complaint in against the cop & his sergeant who tried to dismiss us when we
1st went to make a complaint- Due to the number of witness's they were disciplined & sent for further training.

Once again the taxpayers have to foot the bill for the actions of violent thugs.

Disturbing Video Shows Cops Taser 86-year-old Man With Dementia for Walking Backward

Kingstree, SC — After a month of seeking justice for 86-year-old Albert Chatfield—who was needlessly tasered by cops to the point of being hospitalized in ICU for weeks—the family and the elderly man with dementia finally have some closure. On Friday, the city noted that Chatfield will receive a $900,000 payout—one of the largest settlements in the history of South Carolina related to a police taser—and the video showing the unnecessary assault was finally released.

The incident happened on the morning of October 16 after Chatfield had an apparent episode due to his dementia and led police on a brief low-speed chase. After Chatfield stopped, he got out of his car and put his hands above his head. However, the 86-year-old man then began to back up—a move police seemingly feared—so a taser was deployed.

Chatfield immediately collapsed as the jolt from the taser completely incapacitated the 86-year-old man. When he fell, he smashed his head on to the pavement, broke his nose and began to experience life-threatening bleeding on his brain. He was rushed to the hospital where he would spend weeks in the ICU.

“He wouldn’t hurt anybody,” said his daughter, Jodi Mack of North Carolina. “He would only make you hurt laughing.”

After the incident, agents with the State Law Enforcement Division were asked to step in and conduct a criminal probe.

“Because the Kingstree Police Department and the town of Kingstree are not trying to hide anything,” Police Chief James Barr said Monday, “I asked SLED to come in and give a full report about what happened, detail by detail.”

Laughably, after claiming they had nothing to hide, Barr refused to release the body camera and dashcam footage.

As the Post and Courier noted, his reasoning behind refusing to release the video was inconsistent at best and at worst, a deliberate cover-up.

Cameras worn by officers and mounted in their cars captured the episode, Barr said, but he declined to release the video because of the state inquiry. The Post and Courier submitted a written request for the footage Oct. 17, two days before Barr requested the probe.

Police claimed in their reports that Chatfield “took up a fighting stance” against Officer Stephen Sweikata. But the policeman didn’t fire his Taser until after Chatfield “started jogging/walking backwards in the lanes of traffic.” The alleged fighting stance is not seen in the video.

Sweikata claimed that he had to taser the 86-year-old man to protect him. He wrote that had he not tasered Chatfield, the elderly man would’ve been struck by a car. However, as is clearly evident in the video, Chatfield was not at risk of being hit by a car at all and the only car in the shot is actually backing away from them.

Instead of surrounding the elderly man, the three large cops resorted to a move that nearly killed Chatfield.

As the Post and Courier reports, Justin Bamberg, the Orangeburg lawyer and state lawmaker representing Chatfield’s family, said Chatfield was clearly suffering some mental impairment at the time, was outnumbered and was not violent.

“They merely wanted to restrain him, but those officers used unreasonable force,” Bamberg said. “In our opinion, based on the law, this is a perfect example where there is no debate on whether the use of force violated Mr. Chatfield’s constitutional rights.”

After staying in intensive care in a medically induced coma, Chatfield finally woke up this week. However, his family says that he cannot talk very well and all he does is cry. He has since been transferred to a long-term care facility where his family hopes he can recover some of his speech and motor skills.

“He’s better than he had been, but he still has a long way to go,” his daughter said Friday at a news conference. “I don’t have the same person I had a month ago.”

“Not everyone who doesn’t listen to a directive from law enforcement has an intent to hurt somebody,” Bamberg said. “You have to talk to these folks. You can’t just tase people to gain compliance. That’s a change we need to see.”
