New York Times Investigation Spotlights NYPD Practice of ‘Testilying’ – It’s Called “Perjury” or “Filing a False Report”, a Crime! – kra

Ken’s Comments:   I have written many articles about perjury by police, a real epidemic. “You take the truth and stretch it out a little bit.” Bullshit! That is perjury. Besides the obvious most awful consequence of having innocent people convicted, this article points out the other more subtle but terrible consequences to the system and society. READ Rush to...

  Ken’s Comments:   Entirely appropriate as compensation and as a deterrent when cops LIE, which they do all too often. But look at the figures mentioned in the article: tens of millions of YOUR tax dollars to settle cases which could have been prevented by 1) better police training, and 2) more prosecutions of wrongdoing cops to deter others! This one is still on the job! 🙁  Excerpts from the Article:   In the largest-ever...

Data Shows Police Brutality in America is Getting Worse — 2018 Could Be the Most Deadly in Years – Killed by Police

Ken’s Comments:   Why is such cruel criminal conduct by cops not so much in the news? Surely we cannot accept it!    Remember THIS one?! Did you see the video all over the news a day or two ago? Young man down, easily being cuffed by a cop, and another cop rushes in and KICKS HIM IN THE HEAD (apparently angry over the preceding car chase). YOU should write a Letter to the Editor about such things, calling for prosecution of bad cops!...

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...

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...

NJ attorney general announces statewide initiative to strengthen police and community relations – a smart move! kra

Ken’s Comments:   Increasingly, politicians are seeing what many of us have seen for years: we must improve the broken down relationship between police and those they serve. Remember and read my article Most Cops are Good Cops.          Despite too many incidents of police abuse and excesses, this is the TRUTH.   New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal today announced a new initiative called the 21st Century Community Policing...
