Burning at the stake

Fox News pandering to the lowest among their viewers apparently posted the full clip of the Jordanian pilot being burned to death by ISIS creeps. Now there is the predictable yap yap by Christians – evil godless jihadists, Islamic nuts torturing a member of the same religion. Or not. Seems we have all been learning about all the factions who claim the same prophets and holy book.

The western civilised societies are so superior to the pajama wearing ISIS bad guys. Ha!

Bill Moyers gave a history lesson about torturing and burning and lynching which took place in Texas. That would be at the turn of the 20 th century, early 1900s. Lynching is so American. When photography became more common place, pictures of the grim deed was preserved.

But long before the lynchings millions of women were burned at the stake. The Catholic Church got rich while the witches burned. The records and “trial” transcripts have been preserved. When I was learning to read antique hand writing I found a digital record of a “witch” trial from Scotland’s past genocidal murders. The woman was given a show trial, her fate of being burned alive had already been decided.

Books on the massacre of millions of women by Catholics representing the seat of the Church in Rome have been written. I have a couple of books on that era in my library.

Then we have the Salem witch trials in the American Colonies. The Christians have a bloody history. No videos from that era. Just written records of men doing “God’s” work, plus helping to build all the fancy churches and the huge stock pile of money.

The murder of innocent people by ISIS can not be condoned. The bastards are repeating a bloody religious war that keeps on repeating, like a ghoulish version of ground hog day – the movie.

More savage was the lynching of Mary Turner and her unborn child, killed for protesting her husband’s murder. “[B]efore a crowd that included women and children,” writes Dray, “Mary was stripped, hung upside down by the ankles, soaked with gasoline, and roasted to death. In the midst of this torment, a white man opened her swollen belly with a hunting knife and her infant fell to the ground, gave a cry, and was stomped to death.”

NYC cops rule NYC

Unelected Unions cops apparently rule NYC as some sort of authoritarian state. The mayor of NYC is unlikely to regain control – if he ever had control in the first place. Thankfully most of us do not live in the police state enclave where the crooks of wall street are protected by their personal police army. The cops go after petty crooks while the real crooks continue the biggest heist of citizens taxes, savings and retirement funds in history.

At no point in the press release did the union acknowledge its members’ duty to protect Americans’ rights as well as their persons. There wasn’t even a perfunctory gesture to that effect. Instead, the union statement spoke of “the dangerous political climate in which all members of law enforcement, nationwide, now find themselves” (the rate of officers being killed is at a 50-year low) and how being a member of American law enforcement hadn’t been so bad since the civil rights movement (or, as the union puts it, “the political unrest of the 1960’s”). At the end of the statement, the union reiterated why it believed support for cops must be “unequivocal,” saying that Baltimore citizens must help “to restore the order necessary for their own safety and for ours.” In sum, the union was arguing that American citizens — including politicians — must do what they’re told, lest we fail to “preserve our nation.” The enemies of civilization, apparently, had already broken through the gates.

Quote from this link

.

NYC police state is a symptom of the militarization of police forces nation wide and also world wide. The violence is frightening. According to some opinion polls, the Fox News viewers are being trained not to worry a out a few black humans who end up dead due to police violence. Problem is that all of us are in the same boat. Eventually the cops will move on to anyone who isn’t instantly submissive. We are heading in a dangerous direction.

Cops in NYC have declared war on the civilian elected mayor. The role of the people of NYC is to obey the cops. We have already witnessed cops rioting when the cops beat and tortured Occupy protesters. Fox News effectively used the divide and conquer technique to turn their viewers against legitimate constitutional freedom of speech. The Fox News  viewers constantly vote against their best interest.

America was not founded by a bunch of passive submissive men and women. I can trace my genealogy to John Adams, his sister, so perhaps I inherited a non submissive gene. If I could trace my genealogy to Cassandra – the seer whose warnings were ignored – I’d blame her for my ability to see social patterns long before the majority.

The Salon article linked above is worth reading and forwarding to others. In the west the cops shops have similar rotten apples give the good cops a bad name. Not all cops are bad, we notice the bad cops because their arrogance and racism is contrary to civilized behavior. Invading overlords seems to be the role model followed by the bad cops.

Mental Health issues still with us

It is always interesting to watch how cops respond to the murders of one of their own – as opposed to cops who murder unarmed citizens. The them against us world view of the cops was again exposed after the cold blooded murder of cops by someone who should have been in a mental hospital. Why aren’t the violently mentally ill getting treatment? How did he get a gun?

The political police unions are using the deaths of two human being who happened to be cops to further their authoritarian rule of NYC. The police union is in control in NYC – and that should concern everyone who still believes in democratically elected Mayors and representatives of the people of NYC. The peaceful protesters are being blamed by the out of control police union for the tragic deaths of two cops by the mentally ill man.

The problem is that the cops who murder unarmed men and women are getting away with their crimes. Are the cops intimidating grand juries? Who knows? Something is out of whack in America when the police unions are far more powerful than elected Mayors. Unions are supposed to be there for the workers – but in many places police unions are not set up that way.

As we watch the political in fighting and out right racist remarks and behavior of police who have their own little kingdoms we are seeing massive dysfunction in our whole political system.

Back to mental illness and cops. The “treatment” for mental illness in the 21st century is jail with little or no treatment. Often the first response by cops to mentally ill patients during a psychotic episode is a bullet in the head. Or beating the mentally ill person to death. If the mentally ill person survives the first encounter and ends up in jail – the lack of professional treatment in jail and the hostility of guards – often ends in death or a living hell for the mentally ill.

Why aren’t the cops showing concern and compassion for the first victim of the mentally ill man who shot the cops? Victim number one is the girlfriend of the man who shot the cops. She was shot first by her mentally ill boyfriend and survived. She is just as much a victim of the lack of mental health care and education in this country.

In the 19th century the mentally ill were locked away in attics or tortured in lunatic asylums. Back then there was very little understanding of mental illness and treatment consisted of various forms of torture. Not that much has changed, even though we understand some of the genetic causes of mental illnesses, like schizophrenia and bipolar or manic depression. Few people know how to spot symptoms of mental illness so that professional can be consulted about mentally ill family members. Most often the warning signs are obvious long before real tragedy strikes. The young man who kill so many children and teachers in Sandy Hook, is a lesson in missing the warning signs. Also this mentally ill person should never had access to guns. Just as the cop killer in NYC should never had access to a gun.

The police union leadership seems to have an agenda and they are sadly using the bodies of two dead cops to further their goals. Punishing legitimate protests against actual police violence and racist police is not the path of a free democratic Nation. The authors of the constitution knew what happens when soldiers are sent to smash protests against unjust laws and abuse by those in power. Many of the authors of our Constitution suffered at the hands of the British soldiers. Today the militarized police force are acting like occupiers of a foreign invader. The police unions are acting like tin pot dictators. We are living in dangerous times.

In the new year I am hoping that this country will recognize that untreated mental illness is a National crisis. At the same time, we need to balance awareness of mental illness, and learn that governments must not be allowed, to claim anyone who disagrees with the elected leaders, should be locked up in a mental hospital. Which is what Russia was famous for – dissenters were treated as mentally ill and the harshest torture/treatments were used.

Tea Party members are terrified that if the mentally ill are barred from owning guns then the Tea Party/Fox news viewers will be barred from owning guns. I find this a strange reaction from extreme conservatives – let the mentally ill buy guns and ammo to protect the rights of all gun owners? Yet I have gone round and round on this issue with Tea Party members. Perhaps this is the illogic underpinning of the police unions, that and the racism of so many cops. Not all cops – we need to be aware of the reports that black NYC cops are concerned for their own safety when not on duty by their white racist flow cops. That story, right there tells us that we need to concentrate on democracy here in America before we try to force democracy on the world.

Tipping point – when

At some point the citizens of the USA and the U.K will reach a tipping point. This is when the citizens realize that we are all potential victims of police violence. Perhaps it is the wrong address where children are terrified by a SWAT team breaking into the wrong home and shooting the couch potato guy because he was gripping his remote control in terror.

Perhaps someone’s grandmother is home alone and a SWAT team fills her full of  bullets (wrong address again) then the cops plant drugs to cover the murder of someone’s granny. Drug dealing granny, yep that’s the ticket.

Perhaps the cops pull over a car and confiscate the cash a collage student has in his suitcase. Key words – cause and warrant. Cops need a probable cause to search your car and they need a warrant from a judge.

Link coming, advice from lawyers. ACLU advice. Never consent to a cop search. We need to know our legal right and hold fast to the few that remain.

You O.K. a police search, they can rip up your home and car and you have little to no recourse. Apparently there are so many laws that we are all in violation of some law every day. Plus cops are known to make up the law as the go along. Cops have no accountability, they know they can get away with murder.

It saddens me greatly that the mythology we were taught in school about how our government works was a lie. We were told a lot of pretty stories. Look I’m a military brat and I grew up learning the mythology of the greatness of the Navy. All lies, the service men merely replaceable units in the War machine.

The link above is an hour video of out of control cops, beating citizens with fists, sticks, and kicks, chock holds, and shooting anyone the cops can shoot. The cops know they can get away with murder in this country.

There is no total count of people harmed by violent cops. Some cops out there are bat shit insane. After a police chase a car flips, ejecting the occupied occupant. The guy is either unconscious or dead or dying. Then we see the cops pile on the person ejected from the car, chased by the cops. Amazing insane behavior, could be the guy was innocent? He ran because he knew no matter what he did he was going to be killed by the cops? I don’t know any of the details, other than seeing cops pile on someone and beat the guy to death.

At some point either the law makers will ensure that the cops are held to obey the same laws as citizens, or people who have been victimized or have watched others being victimized by cops begin to fight back.

One peaceful way of fighting back is to take videos of every encounter with a cop. Another peaceful way to fight back is to SUE the police departments and city, county and state governments. Anytime I read about police violence or see a cop or cops beating a civilian to death, I want to know that lawyers are preparing to use for millions. Of course the citizens of the jurisdiction being sued will pay the bill. That multi million dollar law suit might wake up the snoozing voters. Money speaks louder than words.

My hope is that before the tipping point which leads to violence happens – law makers wake up. Please.

It may already be too late. Of course the Republicans worship the 1 % – and the cops work for the 1 %. The 1% will need a whole lot of protection as global warming progresses.

So damned sad. There is a reason why science fiction writers are pessimistic about the future. Orwell’s 1984 is apparently the main text  book for cop schools.

Additional links and information

What are the police and campus police arming themselves for? Pacification of the entire civilian population of the USA? The idiots at Fox News were telling their faithful followers that surplus military equipment has been spread throughout the U.S. So that the U.N. could take over the U.S.. This information comes from conservative relatives who believe everything Fox talking heads tell them. But the cat is out of the bag. Cop shops are being primed to use all that military equipment on we the people. Ferguson cop shop showed us just how the macho killing machines will be used. Meanwhile a young woman lost her eye after being shot in the face with a rubber bullet by a cop. She was a passenger in a car drives enough by her husband – she is black the cop who shot her was white and male.

Another video of the murder of Eric Garner showing his murders standing over his body as if he is a trophy.

Then here is one of a cop punching a 16 year old girl in the face, the other cop then claims that they can do whatever the hell they want, including shooting the girl. So there you have it, out of the mouth of pigs. We are their enemy. So does this make them the enemy of the people? That idea makes me ill. Oh one little detail – the girl is asthmatic and the girl’s mom is pleading with the cops to stop beating her child. Of course the stupid mother called the cops. This video is at rawstory.com the comments following the video are interesting. If it was the mother beating the child, the mom would be in jail. The cops are out of control.

What we are seeing is a psychology experiment run at Stanford University where students were randomly selected to be guards or prisoners. The student chosen to be guards took to the role playing like ducks to water. The professor running the experiment had to end it early. The guards be same abusive. The job shaped their behavior.

Grand jury has got to go

The grand jury in NYC copied the Ferguson grand jury. An unarmed black man was murdered by a crazed killer and the crazed killer got away with murder.

What a shameful mess. The look on the face of that cop, captured on video as he murdered the man was pure rage and hatred. The man murdered had been hassled repeatedly by the pig cops.

Where is the first black Perez on this? Acting like a white male president. This president has no empathy for others. His wife said this on the “View” so sort of opinion show with five women snapping at each other. The female hosts corrected Mrs. Obama. No she was correct. A man who can order the murder on a 16 year old American citizen living in Yemen has NO empathy. Mrs Obama spoke truthfully when she said her husband had no empathy.

Another cop gets away with murder, a murder that was recorded and viewed by millions. The person who took the video was indicted by the fu***** retarded jury.

But hey the cops in New Orleans are at war with women – they’ve decided that rape doesn’t exist. So I really do understand the war on a whole group based on color of skin, or gender or having asthma. Yesterday Raw Story had a story about a cop who stopped a car for running a red light. This was a life or death – got to get passenger to hospital. The cop chose death for the asthmatic. Fu** the cops and their bosses. The cops are the occupied force. Theses creeps are chosen on the willingness to murder. Cops cover for the bad cops, making the whole rotten bunch a lawless bunch of killers. These are scary times.

For blacks and people of color – best not even touch a gun. A white racist will call for the nearest killer cop to come shoot a 12 year old child or man – only white males can have guns. Or the female enablers of the women hating male clubs.

Everyone best now down, be submissive to all the red neck hill Billy cops hired by racist Police Chiefs and Sheriffs. Right now the cops are going after the step father of Michael Brown for something he said. Shame on him for getting emotional. Remember your place – full submission. It makes an easier target for the executioner.

Obama – just another white guy, hired to protect the status quo. See I was right about him. I grew up in Hawaii, Obama went to an exclusive prep school. He has absolutely no concept of growing up black in America. Although Hawaii is the 50th state – it is far enough away from the mainland to have a uniquely different culture. In Hawaii the mixed race kids are the majority, hoali or white folk are the minority. So Obama really has no concept of living and growing up in a black ghetto where the white cops constantly harass people of color. He has no empathy for the other because he has lived in an upper class bubble his whole life.

Grand Jury system has got to go. How to get rid of it?

New era of lynching

Paul Craig Roberts puts into words my own thoughts on the execution of 12 year old child. Cop car drives up and bang a child lies dying. The lynching cops refused to render aid to the child, preferring to stand over his trophy kill. There have been several, kill first, and then make up lies, to justify the murder of mostly young black males. Does the training turn cops into pathological, cold blooded killers, or are the pathological killers drawn to the job?

We really need to know — if the training is to blame or the selection process.

Ferguson – no surprise

Red necked racist prosecutor demonstrates to the world what KKK justices looks like. This prosecutor is a democrat, as is the governor and the President (who is a white guy who claimed to be white only when the black vote is needed).

The occupied states of America are truly a sight to behold. There are now so many cases of unarmed black men and women, murdered by cops that it would take too much space to list the current death list. Unarmed black guy walk in in building, cops shoot him dead. Cops claimed he was trying to open the door with same hand that was holding his gun. Another flat out lie by another murdering cop. Then the twelve year old boy shot by cop for having a toy gun. Again the cop lies.

The farce of a grand jury in the farce of an “investigation” by the farce of a prosecutor in Ferguson – those two head shots, the two bullets that murdered an unarmed teenager, ignored by the farce of a legal system.

Cops get away with murder, brutal assault and rape, just like any foreign army occupying. We pay the salaries of these murdering creeps. Cops in Utah are on a killing spree according to a recent study you are more likely to be killed by a cops than any other “death by”. Doesn’t that just make us all feel just so safe –not. The other danger are the cops on the roads and their pursuit at high speed. If you happen to be a hostage then your survival chances are NOT very good.

So there is as problem, to the cops WE are the enemy. 95  year old man, murdered by cops. Little two year old children – SWAT team tosses a stun grenade in child’s crib. Mentally ill, cops shoot the teen in the head while the kid is being held by other cops. Nothing happens to any of these violent and vicious killers.

When will the state sanctioned murders (mostly racist) stop? The legislative bodies refuse to revise the laws, everyone is afraid to make cops stop killing. At some point all cops will be tossed in the same bag, as in all cops kill, any cop might be a killer – there is no way to tell the good cops from the bad cops. To me Darren Wilson looks like a red necked, cold blooded, killer. He has the bully attitude. When are the good cops going to distance themselves from the dirty rotten cops. Or am I falling into wishful thinking? There are no longer any good cops, is this the new reality? It is up to the cops to cross the thin blue line and clean house. Darren Wilson needs to be put on trial, not with a jury of his peers, but with all of his victims and his victim’s parents. Then we might see real justice.

To the idiots that stalk and kill cops – violence always creates more violence. When the cops are over armed by Homeland Insecurity with the newest forms of torture and mass murder, violence won’t bring the needed changes.

The future doesn’t look like a nice comfy place, not with the current brutal trends in law enforcement.
