Police Force abuses?

130 Chicago Officers Account for 29 Percent of Police Shootings

 

While more than 95 percent of all Chicago police officers never fired their gun from 2004 to 2016, 130 officers have done it more than once. .......

.... . Compared with a random sample of 1,000 CPD officers, these cops often exhibited troubling patterns of behavior before their shootings, including increasing counts of citizen complaints and uses of force. About 23 percent of those shootings could be predicted — and potentially prevented — by software widely used among police departments. .........

“It is important to not equate officer-involved shootings … with misconduct,” wrote Scott Wolfe, a professor of criminology at Michigan State University. “The officer may be placed in assignments or called out to particular situations because his/her colleagues know he/she is capable of handling dangerous situations.” But a large number of shootings can be indicative of problematic conduct. “When we have officers that have a high number of OIS compared to their colleagues, it provides reason to look deeper at the behavior,” .....

The eminently hackable police bodycam

Josh Mitchell's Defcon presentation analyzes the security of five popular brands of police bodycams (Vievu, Patrol Eyes, Fire Cam, Digital Ally, and CeeSc) and reveals that they are universally terrible, though the Digital Ally models are the least bad of the batch, as Wired's Lily Hay Newman reports.

All the devices use predictable network addresses that can be used to remotely sense and identify the cameras when they switch on. Attackers could pinpoint intense police activity by watching for groups of cameras that all switch on at the same place and time.

None of the devices use code-signing, making them typical of garbagey Internet of **** devices. That means that attackers can slip arbitrary code into them. And none of them cryptographically sign the video they take, which would be a relatively strong way of detecting tampering by police officers, their departments, or criminals.

There's tons more. Some of the devices can form ad-hoc wifi networks to bridge in other devices, but they don't authenticate these sign-ons, so you can just connect with a laptop and start raiding the network for accessible filesystems and gank or alter videos, or just drop malware on them.

it's a dangerous world out there which is why police forces are becoming more militarized the msm laments.

just look at hellholes like Chicago and Detroit.

testaments that the liberal approaches to crime simply do not work....

never have and never will.

and what do they do? continue to push the same pie in the sky sesame street methodologies they have been pushing since the early 1970s.

Police pulled fake ‘Antifa’ list from neo-Nazi site and used it to target random people who’d signed an anti-Trump petition: lawsuit

A Harvard Law professor accused the Baton Rouge police department of pulling a list of “antifa” activists from a neo-Nazi website — and is suing to get access to emails about it.

 

New Orleans’ WGNO reported that Harvard Law School Lecturer Thomas Frampton is suing the Louisiana State Police on behalf of a civil rights lawyer who discovered a list titled “full list of antifa.docx” that bore a striking resemblance to a hoax roster circulated on the neo-Nazi Stormfront website.

In May, New Orleans-based attorney William Most filed a request for public records on all LSP emails “containing hate speech and racist catchphrases,” the report noted, including the “white genocide” conspiracy theory.

 

The LSP delayed for months, issued an initial denial of the request and then finally released a cache of 64 emails — one of which contained a file named “full list of antifa” as an attachment. According to the suit, the document was circulated among high-ranking officials in the state police and was also given to local law enforcement groups.

 

Most requested a copy of the email — but was told by the LSP that “releasing the document could ‘compromise’ an ongoing criminal investigation in which LSP anticipates arrests, and reveal the identity of its ‘Confidential Informant,'” the report noted.

Frampton alleges in the lawsuit that the document originated on the conspiracy theory-oriented 8chan message board before being spread on Stormfront and other white supremacist sites.

 

Rather than containing an actual list of anti-fascist organizers, the lawsuit alleges that the roster “contains the names of thousands of ordinary, law-abiding citizens who signed an online petition against President Trump.”

UPDATE: Police now say that this cop used a key fob to enter the wrong apartment.

Instead of flashing green and unlocking, it flashed red...repeatedly.

When Botham opened the door to HIS APARTMENT, she unholstered her gun and shot him dead immediately.

No struggle. Just murder.

this incident does bother me. apparently this young man from st. lucia was an exemplorary person. this 2nd or 3rd rate officer cagney walks into his apartment, it's dark, she barks some amazonian commands at the poor guy and since he didn't comply she opens up at him with two shots and he dies later at the hospital.

congradulations! does she feel the equal of her male colleagues now? thanks to the feminists and liberals police academies will now hand a uniform and a service revolver to just anyone.

I hope his poor mother and relatives in st. lucia get justice.

Amber Guyger Fallout: How Common Is Police Crime?

"......... The data suggest that we should discourage off-duty police from carrying guns. I used to work in law enforcement, and I know from experience that officers are socialized into a police subculture that is built around an us-versus-them mentality:

Everyone but “us” is a potential threat. And police can’t just turn off this way of seeing when they go off duty. Perhaps that’s natural, and there’s nothing we can do about it

—but our environment would be a lot safer for “them,” for the Botham Shem Jeans of the world, if cops seeing red didn’t carry guns. "

Attorneys Question Officer's Account of Neighbor's Shooting

The document, prepared by a Texas Ranger, appeared to be based almost entirely on Amber Guyger's account.

 

...The Dallas County medical examiner's office said Jean died of a gunshot wound to the chest. His death was ruled a homicide. Guyger was arrested Sunday night and booked into jail in neighboring Kaufman County before being released on bond.

At a news conference Monday evening, Merritt said two independent witnesses have told him they heard knocking on the door in the hallway before the shooting. 

He said one witness reported hearing a woman's voice saying, "Let me in! Let me in!" Then they heard gunshots, after which one witness said she heard a man's voice say, "Oh my God! Why did you do that?"

Merritt said he believes those were Jean's last words.....

He said Jean had a red doormat outside his apartment door. "In fact, to ensure no one mistook his apartment the way this officer is claiming in this case, he went out and bought the biggest, brightest red rug and placed it right there at his doorstep," Merritt said. ......

Dallas PD Officer Amber Guyger first said she showed up to #BothamJean's apartment and the door was shut and locked.

Then she said it was shut but unlocked.

Now she says it was actually wide open.

Here a resident of the same building shows that is IMPOSSIBLE. She lies.

Could this be a crime of passion?  (which makes sense since the vast majority of murders are).

That would be a bummer for Princess who has already blamed the shooting on Trump and racism.

(as well as those that want this to be a police abuse of power crime).

 This was the opinion of the victim's mother and I was just making that clear.

Whatever the reason this is a terrible tragedy and a terrible abuse of power and privilege.

I checked your Trump Racism thread and all you wrote was "The Trump effect".

But I guess you believe that was 'just making that clear'.  

Are you taking lessons from Sarah Sanders?

Prosecutors seek to chip away at "blue wall of silence" as Chicago officers reluctantly testify against colleague charged with murder in the shooting of Laquan McDonald.

------------------------------------------------

"CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago police officers clearly do not want to be in court testifying against a colleague accused of murder, with one of them so uncomfortable he couldn’t bring himself to point to the man on trial, something witnesses are routinely asked to do.

But one after another — whether they want to or not — officers who were at the scene the night of Oct. 20, 2014, when white officer Jason Van Dyke emptied his gun into black teenager Laquan McDonald, are being called to testify, as prosecutors seek to chip away at the “blue wall of silence” long associated with the city’s police force and other law enforcement agencies across the country....

Jason Van Dyke, the on-duty Chicago Police officer who fatally shot 17-year-old Laquan McDonald in 2014, is going on trial for the teenager's murder. The highly anticipated trial has political, social and cultural implications. The Sun-Times staff will update this page every day throughout the trial and will offer a number of resources related to case.

Jury begins deliberations at Van Dyke's trial after prosecution, defense argue over evidence

"..........Van Dyke, 40, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, 16 counts of aggravated battery with a firearm and one count of official misconduct.

Jurors, though, will have the option to instead find Van Dyke guilty of the lesser charge of second-degree murder. To do that, they would need to find that Van Dyke’s claim he feared for his safety when he fired 16 shots at McDonald was unreasonable.

McDonald’s shooting in October 2014 was caught on a now-infamous police dashboard camera that wasn’t made public until more than a year later by court order. Its release led to months of protests and political upheaval, exposing the city’s racial fault lines and prompting a damning probe by the U.S. Department of Justice of the Police Department’s history of civil rights violations, particularly involving minorities.....
