Getting Away with Murder: How Cops Avoid Accountability for Criminal Acts

Thousands of chokehold complaints have been filed since NYC banned them in 1993. On October 7, the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board published a report that analyzes the use of chokeholds by NYPD officers over the past year. The report found that between July 2013 and June 2014, the CCRB received 219 chokehold complaints, the highest number seen since the period between 2006-2010 when over 200 chokehold complaints were being filed annually. This year, CCRB also received the highest relative level of chokehold complaints registered since 2001—7.6 out of every 100 use-of-force complaints were for chokeholds. According to the NYPD Patrol Guide, the use of chokeholds against civilian suspects is illegal. This has been the case for more than 20 years. A chokehold, as defined in the NYPD’s use-of-force policy, is “any pressure to the throat or windpipe, which may prevent or hinder breathing or reduce intake […] Read More

Badcop: NYPD officer caught on camera violently tackling pregnant woman onto her stomach (VIDEO)

The five-months pregnant woman, Sandra Amezquita, was trying to intervene in the arrest of her 17-year-old son early Saturday morning in Brooklyn, police said. Residents told WABC that Amezquita is nearly six months along. Cops from New York City’s 72nd Precinct had spotted Amezquita’s son, 17-year-old Jhohan Lemos, with a clip – one often used to hold a knife – on top of his pants pocket, and a corresponding bulge below. The NYPD officers were arresting the teen for carrying an illegal knife in front of a bar where his parents and family friends were hanging out before coming out to help the teen, the New York Post reported, citing law enforcement officials. The altercation began around 2:15 a.m., when Amezquita asked police to “stop using excessive force” on her son, family lawyer Sanford Rubenstein said, according to Lohud.

2013: DREAMING WHILE AWAKE PRACTICES

This simple dreaming while awake practice pulls the unconscious mind into the realm of the conscious mind. Meditate with a partner at dusk or in a low light situation with your eyes open. Look into each other’s eyes for a long period of time while blanking your mind. Let your eyes be slightly soft-focused and see. Allow any change in your vision to occur naturally. Be aware of the entire peripheral area and notice the highlights and shadows intensify. The face may disappear altogether or may change to other faces. Whatever you see, there is nothing to fear. A variation of this practice is to stare in a mirror in a low light situation. Another practice is to meditate facing someone, with your eyes closed. Allow yourself to be pulled to one of their chakras. Now allow an image to appear that has meaning to the person. Ask yourself […] Read More

A LOOK AT THE STARS

THE SIRIUS MYSTERY by Robert K. G. Temple (New York, 1976), pp.58-59 We tend to be unaware that stars rise and set at all. This is not entirely due to our living in cities ablaze with electric lights which reflect back at us from our fumes, smoke, and artificial haze. When I discussed the stars with a well-known naturalist, I was surprised to learn that even a man such as he, who has spent his entire lifetime observing wildlife and nature, was totally unaware of the movements of the stars. And he is no prisoner of smog-bound cities. He had no inkling, for instance, that the Little Bear could serve as a reliable night clock as it revolves in tight circles around the Pole Star (and acts as a celestial hour-hand at half speed – that is, it takes 24 hours rather than 12 for a single revolution.) I […] Read More

1972: L.A. to N.Y. in Half an Hour?

If you doubt the possibility that the U.S. government “Black” projects engineers have he ability to secretly construct an underground tube-shuttle system, think again. Here is a quoted article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times newspaper on June 11, 1972. It is an interview with the lead physicist at the RAND corporation “think tank” about how economical, technologically achievable and environmentally friendly such a Very High Speed Transit (VHST) network would be if work on it were begun. LA TIMES, JUNE 11, 1972 L.A. to N.Y. in Half an Hour? 10,000 – M.P.H. Tunnel Train Plan Developed By: Times Science Writer – George Getz  A Rand corporation physicist has devised a rapid transit system to get you from Los Angeles to NY in half an hour for a $50 fair. He said existing technology made such a system feasible and so does a cost analysis. The essence of the idea is to dig a tunnel more or less along the present routes […] Read More

The couldn't give a XXXX FILES

Our own Sculley and Mulder mixed up in one Captain W E Paranoia this month investigates the Aids virus. Did it just happen or was it created in a lab ?. My father, Wing Commander Paranoia, used to say ‘you can’t enslave a free man, you can only kill him.’ Information is exactly the same, no attempts at imprisoning, restraining or gagging it will ever succeed. The more draconian the measures, the more hi tech the equipment used to impound it, the more channels will be found for it’s dissemination. Let’s not forget that the Net itself (probably one of the greatest information liberators we’ve invented) was created by intelligence and military forces bent on societal repression. Fears are rife through out the cyber community of increasing crackdowns on the information super highway, as the forces that be, like sick evil drooling vultures sharpen their knives and prepare to […] Read More

Energy Information

The Washington Post, Washington Times, Richmond Times Dispatch, Potomac News, Manassas Journal Messenger and other print radio/TV media outlets will not inform you of this information. The post did respond to another letter. After you read the following information, do you wonder why they won’t inform you? To further illustrate how information is suppressed, during September 2004, email was sent to 119 Talk show host. Neglecting automatic responses, one host responded. When I responded to that host, no response. During 2004-2005 I sent more than 600 email and letters concerning Energy Information. Most people did not respond including my Members of Congress. Several email/letters were to local Washington, D.C. Radio/TV stations; WTOP, WMAL, WJLA NBC and WTTG Need further proof that information is suppressed? See this web site document. You might find the 1980 letter, near the bottom, to an inventor from the (U.S). Commissioner of Patents interesting. The […] Read More

Which Reality Do You Choose?

In the winter of 1996, my friend Sunny came to visit me in South Dakota. She stayed a few days and the day before she was to leave, we had a knowingness that we needed to go to Devil’s Tower, Wyoming, about 90 miles away. It was snowing and the weather forecast called for 8-10 inches, but we decided this was something we needed to do regardless of the weather. When we drove onto Interstate 90, the snow was already piling up. We commented on how beautiful it was and quickly forgot the weather conditions, as we became absorbed in talking about why we were making this pilgrimage and what we would do when we reached the formation. The journey went quickly and as we approached Sundance, Wyoming, I said we best stop at the rest area because there would be no facilities open at Devil’s Tower. As I […] Read More

Onondaga Prophecies

“We have to get back to the spiritual law if we are to survive.” The speaker is a Native American leader in conversation with Bill Moyers on the television special Moyers/Oren Lyons the Faithkeeper. July 1991 As a “Faithkeeper,” Oren Lyons is the person responsible for passing on and interpreting his people’s traditions, legends, and prophecies. He is a Chief of the Turtle Clan of the Onondaga, one of the Six Nations in the Iroquois Confederation. Moyers talks with him in his cabin on Onondaga land in upstate New York. Lyons’ words are startling both for their historical perspective and their practical value. Giving a history lesson which will be news to many Americans, he explains how the Founding Fathers of the United States drew upon the American system of government when making their plans for the nation. As early as 1744, Benjamin Franklin was present at a meeting […] Read More
