Can’t Make This Up: Cop Caught Stealing Pot from Police Dept… on His Own Body Cam

by Matt Agorist Grants, NM — As the Free Thought Project pointed out many times before, police departments in America can legally discriminate against hiring individuals if their IQ is too high. Couple this with the fact that thieves aren’t always the sharpest tools in the toolbox, and you get the makings of a scenario like the one that unfolded in New Mexico last week. A Grants cop was caught on his own body cam stealing weed. Grants Police Department Sgt. Roshern C. McKinney, 33, was arrested last week after an investigation found that he’d stolen both money and marijuana from the police department. McKinney has since been charged with marijuana distribution, conspiracy, and felony embezzlement. State police also charged McKinney’s 23-year-old girlfriend Tanicka Gallegos-Gonzales, for drug distribution and conspiracy. Both were arrested in Albuquerque and booked into the Sandoval County Detention Center, according to KOB. Public Information Officer for the New Mexico State […] Read More

Illinois Institutes Chilling New Mandate for Schools to Teach Children How to Submit to Police

by Matt Agorist The police state apparatus will now condition children to prostrate themselves before their masters as they are extorted during traffic stops. Illinois drivers education now includes instructions on how to properly allow police to generate revenue. The bill signed into law on Friday by Governor Bruce Rauner authorizes a new curriculum for driver’s education classes which includes interacting with police. It will be instituted for the 2017-18 school year and become mandatory training at both private and public schools. The guidelines, created by the secretary of state’s office, will instruct pupils on how to respond if they are pulled over by the police. It will condition them to not be afraid of being robbed on the roadside. “I think it’s really timely, so that teenagers and young drivers don’t look at a police officer as a threat or a problem,” State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield), who sponsored the legislation, told […] Read More

Will You Become A Terrorist? Mass Media Setting Early Stage For Global Police Pre-Crime Challenge

The question posed recently by NY Times writer Matt Apuzzo is “who will become a terrorist?” The answer is, there is no answer. There is no way to predict who will say yes to the call to partake in state sponsored terror. Let’s not confuse genuine reality with the artificial reality delivered on TV and mainstream media for the masses. Therefore let’s be absolutely clear. In the 2-dimensional reality that the mainstream media exists in, the question is posed on the assumption that there are entities out there that choose entirely on their own to become “terrorists”. In this reality the mass media is posing the question of- how can we predict who will become (by choice) the next “terrorists”? The question is intended to facilitate the artificial reality pushed by mainstream media. A look behind the scenes in this fake reality we see massive long-term plans which involve […] Read More

The Most Dangerous Police Force in America

The Fresno PD is under investigation and speculation within a vast majority of independent sources. An activist by the name of John Lang predicted his own death for speaking out against the corruption of the police force here in Fresno county. His murder is shrined in mystery to the utmost severity. Drawing international recognition by the strongest hacker force to ever exist titled Anonymous, in which they publicly target Fresno Cities Representatives in claiming they would take down their website for lack of response or credibility for future investigations, stating “John Lang will not be forgotten”. The police were found to be capitalizing illegally on Fresno residents by profiling, and scanning license plates of parked cars and then proceed to stalk the drivers of Fresno’s community in pulling residents over to harass and fine residents. By capitalizing on a corrupt ticketing system for the sake of monetary gain. John […] Read More

The Clinton Backed Honduran Regime Is Picking Off Indigenous Leaders

Hillary Clinton will be good for women. Ask Berta Cáceres. But you can’t. She’s dead. Gunned down yesterday, March 2, at midnight, in her hometown of La Esperanza, Intibuca, in Honduras. Cáceres was a vocal and brave indigenous leader, an opponent of the 2009 Honduran coup that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, made possible. In The Nation, Dana Frank and I covered that coup as it unfolded. Later, as Clinton’s emails were released, others, such as Robert Naiman, Mark Weisbrot, and Alex Main, revealed the central role she played in undercutting Manuel Zelaya, the deposed president, and undercutting the opposition movement demanding his restoration. In so doing, Clinton allied with the worst sectors of Honduran society. Despite the fact that he was a rural patriarch, Zelaya as president was remarkably supportive of “intersectionality” (that is, a left politics not reducible to class or political economy): He tried to […] Read More

American Cops Now Steal More Property Than All US Burglars Combined

By Matt Agorist For decades now, federal government and their cohorts in law enforcement have been carrying out theft of the citizenry on a massive scale. We’re not talking about taxes, but an insidious power known as Civil Asset Forfeiture (CAF). The 1980s-era laws were designed to drain resources from powerful criminal organizations, but CAF has become a tool for law enforcement agencies across the U.S. to steal money and property from countless innocent people. No criminal charge is required for this confiscation, resulting in easy inflows of cash for law enforcement departments and the proliferation of abuse. This phenomenon is known as “policing for profit.” In the last 25 years, the amount of “profit” stolen through CAF has skyrocketted. According to the US Department of Justice, the value of asset forfeiture revoceries by US authorities from 1989-2010 was $12,667,612,066, increasing on average 19.5% per year. In 2008, law […] Read More

ISIS Twitter Accounts Traced to… UK Government Computers

In a move that will surely conjure fumbled narratives and cheeky excuses from the rouge British government, four young hackers have traced at least three ISIS Twitter accounts to the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), based out of London. The group calls themselves VandaSec traced several online-jihadi accounts via their IP addresses (an IP address is an identification number for computers of all types) at first, to Saudi Arabia. Later, upon deeper digging the hackers unearthed information linking these accounts directly to British government computers based out of the DWP. Sure enough after the news broke British officials responded by stating the IP addresses were sold as part of a much larger ‘bulk sale’ to Saudi Arabian based telecoms companies. “We think carefully about which companies we sell addresses to, but how their customers use this internet connection is beyond our control.” A Cabinet Official was quoted as […] Read More

These 20 Americans Own More Wealth than Half of All US Citizens Combined – And It’s Getting Worse

An outright jaw-dropping report was released on Monday that draws attention to the staggering wealth of just a small handful of people. The report, titled Billionaire Bonanza: The Forbes 400 and the Rest of Us, “exposes the extreme wealth concentrated within the fortunes of the 400 wealthiest Americans and compares this wealth to the much more meager assets of several different segments of American society.” Chuck Collins and Josh Hoxie, the authors of the report, described a compelling picture about the top 20 of those 400 people. America’s 20 wealthiest people — a group that could fit comfortably in one single Gulfstream G650 luxury jet –­ now own more wealth than the bottom half of the American population combined. Let that sink in. A group of people that could stand in your living room owns more wealth the 160,000,000 other Americans. So why is that? Of course, becoming rich is no […] Read More

Beaten and Arrested for Riding a Hoverboard: What Marty McFly Would Have Really Seen on Oct 21, 2015

Editor’s Note: This story is from yesterday, Back to the Future day, the day envisioned as “the future” in the 80s film Back to the Future II. Below is how America really looks by comparison to the film. How sad is it that, not only do we not have flying cars, but there is more than one example of people who do manage to get their hands on a hoverboard getting beat down and violently arrested for riding them in “unauthorized” areas in the modern American police state. The date that people have been counting down to for the last 26 years is here. Today is the day Michael J Fox’s Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd’s Doc Brown travelled to in Back to the Future 2 in 1989. But when McFly landed in that 2015 on that fateful fictional day, do you think he could have imagined the state of […] Read More

Cop Charged with Felony After Video Shows Him Smashing in Suspect’s Face with a Shotgun

Owasso, OK — Owasso police officer, Mike Denton, was fired in 2011 after body cam and surveillance footage showed him stomping on a handcuffed man’s head and then repeatedly elbowing him in the face. The victim was Brian Spalding. Spalding’s arrest was caught on all of the officer’s lapel cams and paints a clear picture of excessive force, justifying the city’s response of firing Denton. However, the Fraternal Order of Police, who argued that Denton was simply “protecting himself” by stomping on a man’s head, nearly breaking both of his arms, and elbowing him. The FOP then filed a grievance which was heard by federal mediator Edward Valverde in March of 2012. On Sept 22, 2014, keeping his rank and position, and back pay, Denton was reinstated. “He’s put back into the exact same role that he left under, which means that he is a lieutenant over a patrol shift,” Police Chief Scott […] Read More

Invoking Your Rights At Police Checkpoints (VIDEO)

A majority of our society essentially walks around without knowing or actively exercising their rights. In fact, some do not even know what their rights are or why they are so important. Moreover, they would rather wave their freedoms afforded in this country at the first signs of a problem. One example of this is during a manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, police and federal agents spent the day storming people’s homes and performing illegal searches. In the Constitution, the word “inalienable” means unable to be taken away from or given away by a possessor. That means these are natural rights are not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs of any particular culture or government, and therefore ours for life. Many of us know this, but still our rights as citizens of the United States are violated by the police. For instance, we all want to cooperate and accommodate police officers when they ask us […] Read More

“You’re My Favorite Victim” Woman Reports Rape to NYPD, Cops Show Up and Sexually Assault Her

New York, NY (RT) — A 25-year-old woman is suing the NYPD, after two of its officers charged with investigating her rape case got her drunk in a hotel room and sexually assaulted her. The complaint made on Tuesday relates to an incident in January 2013, when the Seattle nursing student was assaulted by a “social acquaintance” at an apartment. She reported the assault by phone in June, and was told the Special Victims Unit would handle the case. According to the New York Daily News, Lieutenant Adam Lamboy and Detective Lucazs Skorzewski arrived to take the woman’s statement on July 5. They later encouraged her to join them for lunch and drinks at a waterfront bar in Seattle. #NYPD officer charged with raping teen http://t.co/Uar5GxmUeJ pic.twitter.com/4PzrFJJdWj — RT America (@RT_America) March 25, 2015 The victim recalls being suspicious of drinking during the day, something to which Lamboy replied, […] Read More

Public School Students Are the New Inmates in the American Police State

“Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that have increasingly come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning. From metal detectors to drug tests, from increased policing to all-seeing electronic surveillance, the public schools of the twenty-first century reflect a society that has become fixated on crime, security and violence.”—Investigative journalist Annette Fuentes In the American police state, you’re either a prisoner (shackled, controlled, monitored, ordered about, limited in what you can do and say, your life not your own) or a prison bureaucrat (police officer, judge, jailer, spy, profiteer, etc.). Indeed, at a time when we are all viewed as suspects, there are so many ways in which a person can be branded a criminal for violating any number of laws, regulations or policies. Even if you haven’t knowingly violated any laws, […] Read More
