Posted by on Jul 16, 2019 in Featured, Other Issues, Police Brutality | 0 comments

Yeah, yeah, I have heard it all before. We shall see whether she has what it takes. The test will be whether she hold officers and medical staff accountable for their wrongdoing, or whether she goes along with what I heard criminal, abusive staff say over and over and over: “We stick together”! Time will tell. Excerpts from the Article: Claire DeMatteis officially replaced former Department of Correction Commissioner Perry Phelps in...

Study: Technology Creates and Embeds Bias in the Criminal Justice System

Posted by on Jul 10, 2019 in Featured, Other Issues, Police Brutality | 0 comments

This excellent article from our friends at the Human Rights Defense Center reminds us that the criminal justice system is biased and racist [I have written/posted scores of articles on that] and that new developments must be carefully monitored to ensure accountability.  This technology certainly presents much opportunity for abuse, and I say beat the drum to get it REGULATED!  I cannot afford a subscription to CLN, but every now and then I get...

A list like this is good for challenging liars in court, but the next step should follow  … nail them with charges! Excerpts from the Article: District attorney offices across the nation are adopting blacklists of officers whose testimony in court is untrustworthy. Referred to as “do not call lists,” “exclusion lists,” or “Brady...

Cops Killed 100 Times More Americans Than Terrorists Did in 2017 – Bet you didn’t know that! kra

Ken’s Comments;   When I post facts like these, I must remind you that most cops are good cops. Nevertheless, this statistic is pretty horrifying. “They are fighting a war on drugs and engage citizens in paramilitary conflict on a daily basis. And the number of citizen casualties in this war is much higher than in the war on terror. That says a lot about our national priorities.” I would substitute the word...

Why bodycam footage might not clear things up – They still are greatly needed – kra

Ken’s Comments:   Another incident of what clearly was an unnecessary killing of a black man by police. Here we learn that peoples’ biases affect what they remember of what they see, and they believe what they remember, even if it is not supported by the video.   Excerpts from the Article:   Stephon Clark, an African-American man, was killed by Sacramento police in his grandmother’s backyard last month, setting off...
