What Year is It?

20 November, 2009



Seriously, from the AP:

MOSCOW – Russian prosecutors say an anti-hate crimes campaigner has been shot and killed in Moscow.

The Prosecutor General’s Investigative Committee says the man killed Monday was an active campaigner against neo-Nazi groups.

It said in a statement Tuesday that investigators are looking into the victim’s activities as a possible motive behind the killing.

It said the 26-year old man was killed in the entrance of his apartment building with a shot to the head. RIA Novosti news agency identified the victim as Ivan Khutorskoi.

Russia has seen a string of contract-style killings of human rights activists and journalists.

Few of the killers are ever found or prosecuted.

Seriously, is there any real reason for neo-nazis to still exist? Their going to be the new Conferderate Civil-War re-enactors in like another decade….

From boingboing.net:

Remember the June 2005 Supreme Court eminent domain ruling that gave Pfizer Pharmaceutical the right to bulldoze a housing neighborhood in Connecticut to make way for a $300 million private development project? Some of the homeowners didn’t want to give up their homes but Pfizer took them to court and won.

Last week Pfizer said it was shutting down its center.

Policemen Suck, Part XXVII…

From Autoblog:

This is just… well, decide for yourselves. A Hollywood, Florida police officer rams into the back of a woman’s car. Three other cops arrive on the scene and they concoct a fictional story about a cat jumping out of a car, and the officer thinking it’s a pedestrian, thereby causing the accident. They then pinned a DUI charge on the woman. The cops even went so far as to change the angle of the pictures to make it look like the woman swerved in front of the police car. And it gets worse from there — and it’s all caught on the video. One of the officers says on tape (NSFW language), “I don’t lie and make things up ever because it’s wrong, but if I need to bend it a little bit to protect a cop, I’ll do it — She’s freaking hammered anyway.”

All charges have been dropped against the woman by the Broward State Attorney’s Office and all four officers are now on administrative duty pending the completion of the investigation. To paraphrase Dave Barry, only in South Florida.

Is it really necessary for me to supply commentary to these stories anymore or should I keep going on my rant about how much policemen in this country (and most countries for that matter) are no good. Or ho it takes a certain type of personality to become a police officer and the people who are police officers don’t have the right one? No? I didn’t think I had to…



These cops are fucking terrible people… actually I don’t think they can be called people, really…

It Really Does Just Keep On Going…

21 July, 2009

As part of my ongoing series on why policemen are retarded and should be completely replaced every two generations, here is a great article about how people are A. still racist and B. still dumb…

From the Boing:



Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr., director of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African and African American Studies, was recently arrested at his own home in Cambridge, Mass. when a neighbor called the cops, presuming him and the also-not-white man he was with to be burglars. Gates described the incident as part of a “racial narrative” playing out in a biased criminal justice system. In this Washington Post article, he explains what happened. Gates was arriving home after a trip to China where he is working on a documentary film, and found the lock to his house had been tampered with. The Moroccan driver who had driven him home from the airport helped him push the door in.

Gates’s home is owned by Harvard so he picked up the phone to call the university’s real estate maintenance office. Before he could finish the conversation, a police officer was standing on his porch and asking him to come out of the house.
“Instinctively, I knew I was not to step outside,” Gates said, describing the officer’s tone as threatening. Gates said the policeman, who was in his 30s and several inches taller than him, followed him into his kitchen where Gates retrieved his identification.

“I was thinking, this is ridiculous, but I’m going to show him my ID, and this guy is going to get out of my house,” Gates said. “This guy had this whole narrative in his head. Black guy breaking and entering.”

After handing the officer both his Harvard and Massachusetts state identification, which included his address, Gates said he began to ask the officer this question, repeatedly. “I said ‘Who are you? I want your name and badge number.’ I got angry.”

According to Gates’s account, the officer refused to give it. The police report says, however, that the officer identified himself. “I weigh 150 lbs and I’m 5′ 7”. I’m going to give flack to a big white guy with a gun. I might wolf later, but I won’t wolf then.”

But Gates did keep asking for the officer’s name and said he began to feel humiliated when his question was ignored. He then said: “This is what happens to black men in America.”

Gates Says He Is Outraged by Arrest at Cambridge Home
Gates is also founder of the Root.com, which is owned by The Washington Post.


A Harvard professor! I mean, come on. This isn’t Caprini Green or something, its fucking Cambrigde, Mass. What goes on there? Rich kids using designer drugs at the worst, probably the occasional douche bag taking advantage of girl (Actually I bet that happens a lot…) Wow…


This is Absolutely Ridiculous…

Holy shit, this is ridiculous. Absolutely terrible. SEND THIS TO ANYONE YOU KNOW!

openquoteIn Lincoln Park, Calif. Michigan, a 17-year-old called 911 when her father (recovering at home from brain surgery) had a seizure. Her first call didn’t go through, so the panicked girl hung up and tried again. While the phone was still ringing, the girl said “what the fuck.” Apparently 911 calls are recorded even while the phone is ringing, so the police officer heard her say it. When the officer answered the call, he was only interested in the fact that the girl said “fuck” and wouldn’t help the girl. Instead, he swears at her and hangs up.

After the girl places several more calls to 911 trying to explain that her father was about to die, the officer finally called the fire department with a fabricated version of what happened.

Eventually, the girl gets arrested and jailed by the police for a crime that isn’t on the books.openquote

Wait, What?

closequoteThe Houston Press reports that final arguments are being held in the criminal assault trial against Dymond Milburn who was 12 years old when four Galveston police officers (David Roark, Justin Popovich, Sean Stewart, and Sgt. Gilbert Gomez) allegedly beat her up with a flashlight and threatened to shoot her puppy, while she was in her yard attending to tripped circuit breaker.

Background: One morning a couple of years ago, Dymond was in her yard, resetting a circuit breaker at the request of her mother. Four plainclothes Galveston police officers were driving by in an unmarked van, responding to a call that three white prostitutes were working Milburn’s neighborhood. The police spotted Dymond (who is black), jumped out of the van and announced that she was under arrest for prostitution. Dymond grabbed a tree and called for her father. The police officers allegedly beat Dymond so badly that she had to be hospitalized (for black eyes as well as throat and ear drum injuries).

I’m lost for words, really… Like the OP (BoingBoing.net) says, how isn’t this a national story?
