Cop Convicted of Making Child Porn While On Duty, Using Police Equipment

A former Florida police sergeant is facing up to 120 years in prison after he was found guilty of producing, possessing and accessing child pornography — all while he was on duty, using equipment provided by his department. Kyle A. Kirby, 37, was charged after an investigation into his patrol car computer in October 2015 revealed images showing young children involved in sex acts. The investigation concluded that Kirby had been using the computer to “download and store child pornography” since at least December 2014. A report from News4Jax noted: “According to court documents, FBI agents and other law enforcement officers searched Kirby’s residence as the result of an online child pornography investigation. That same morning, the Live Oak police chief authorized the agents to inspect and search the computer located inside Kirby’s patrol car. “A forensic examination of the patrol car computer used by Kirby revealed that it […] 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

City Council Terminates Police Force — Town Doesn’t Descend Into Chaos

After the Galveston Marshal’s office allegedly went rogue, refusing to obey the orders of the town’s council, the council voted this week to eliminate their police force. Dozens of protesters turned out to voice their discontent and fears about ridding the town of 1,200 of their police force. After only being in office for a month, Town Marshal Shawn Durham had made many enemies. According to council documents, Durham was found guilty of violating the rules, neglecting or disobeying orders, conduct unbecoming of an officer, and another breach of discipline. The charges stem from an apparent power struggle that entailed after Durham was sworn in back in June. According to the council, Durham displayed insubordinate behavior when he refused to grant Town Council President John Hart’s requests on behalf of the council for keys to the police department and police vehicles, passwords to police computers and the code to […] Read More

Court Rules Police Don’t Need To Know The Laws They Enforce

The Supreme Court ruled that an officer’s ignorance of the law essentially didn’t matter — effectively allowing police around the country the ability to make stops if they ‘reasonably’ believe the cause for the stop is legal. Seattle Police arrest a protester on 4th Avenue South in Sodo during the annual May Day Anti-Capitalist protest and march Sunday, May 1, 2016, in Seattle, Wash. (Bettina Hansen/The Seattle Times via AP) Police are no longer be required to even give the appearance of an understanding of the laws they’re tasked with enforcing, thanks to a recent court decision surpassing even the veritable green light previously granted in Heien v. North Carolina. In the Heien case, the Supreme Court ruled a “police officer’s reasonable mistake of law gives rise to reasonable suspicion that justifies a traffic stop under the Fourth Amendment.” A motorist’s broken tail light caused an officer to make […] Read More

What’s the Best Way to Weed Out Potential Killer Cops?

Scientists are scouring data to identify bad-seed cops. Maybe the simpler route would be to ask the chiefs. Can data-analysis innovations help identify bad-seed cops before they act out? The police world has cast an eye toward that possibility as teams of computer scientists from outside the insular law enforcement bubble work to improve on early-intervention systems designed to red-flag officers with behavioral problems who might engage in “adverse interactions” with citizens. The goal is to reduce the human casualties and financial damages from the cortege of troubling police-involved deaths of citizens (most of them black) that have dominated police news over the past two years—Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, Laquan McDonald and many others. But there might be a more direct route to identifying rogues: simply ask police chiefs for the names. For generations, conventional wisdom has held that every cop—from […] Read More

Freemasonry linked to police cover-up of Hillsborough disaster that left 96 dead

Freemasonry has been linked to allegations of a police cover-up concerning the Hillsborough disaster, as a decades-long battle for justice for the families of 96 people who died that fateful day rolls on. Freemasons’ power and influence in Britain and allegations that Scotland Yard ran a “black propaganda unit” are being probed by two separate criminal inquiries due to come to a close by the end of 2016. Files relating to a number of key individuals and organizations are currently being scoured for evidence of criminality, including manslaughter and the perversion of the course of justice. Jon Stoddart, who headed Scotland Yard’s Operation Resolve probe into the planning of the FA Cup semi-final match that left 96 Liverpool FC supporters dead, says scrutiny is being directed at senior ranking officials. On Tuesday an inquest ruled that all 96 Liverpool fans who died at the football game had been unlawfully […] Read More

1956: “America Peaked Back Then and We’ve Been In Decline Ever Since”

This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his End of the American Dream website. Editor’s Comment: How far we have fallen! The American Dream used to be attainable to all who worked hard, and freedom was still a tangible thing that many experienced. People used common sense and wisdom from experience to make it through life. Today, most people are dumbed-down consumers who only know what they have been told through the television, who eat processed foods made by leading corporations with almost no nutritional value, they are in debt up to their eyeballs, and couldn’t think independently if they tried. Problem solving and common decency have disappeared, and the gap between the Americans of 60 years ago is so astonishing as to make movies like Idiocracy and books like The Time Machine appear absolutely correct. America 1956 vs. America 2016 by Michael Snyder Is […] Read More

Drug test kits used by police are total science fraud: They produce positive results 70% of the time, no matter what is being tested

Most sane people – even a significant percentage of law enforcement authorities – now freely admit that the War on Drugs has been a complete and utter failure. It’s been a costly war, both in financial and human terms. Millions of Americans are serving time in prison for minor non-violent drug offenses, while billions of dollars are still being wasted in a futile effort to stop drug use in our nation – an effort which many believe is more about preserving big budgets for law enforcement agencies than anything else. An unknown number of completely innocent citizens have been the victims of false positive results of drug-testing kits routinely used by law enforcement authorities. These kits have been shown to produce up to 70 percent false positive results for marijuana and other drugs. Drinking tea and visiting gardening stores warrants SWAT team raids? In an almost unbelievably unfair recent […] Read More

Officer Firing at Fleeing Vehicle Misses Driver, Kills Female Passenger and Her Dog Instead

El Cajon, CA — In yet another tragic case of an officer fearing for his life from a fleeing car, a woman and a dog have been killed. Early Saturday morning, police spotted a stolen red Toyota and pulled over the vehicle. Inside the car were three men, a woman and a dog. As the officer approached the vehicle, it sped off before he could get to them and led police on a high-speed chase. Eventually, the car was cornered in a cul-de-sac and came to a halt. As the officer exited his vehicle, according to the El Cahon Police Department, the driver then sped toward the officer. ‘Fearing for his life,’ the officer fired four rounds into the vehicle. The driver was not hit, which means that if he actually intended to run over the officer, that he could have done so. However, the passenger in the vehicle, […] Read More

Ohio Sheriffs: Get your Concealed Carry Permits

Dayton’s WHIO (AM 1290) is reporting that two Ohio county sheriffs took to Twitter in the hours after news of the attack in San Bernadino, CA to urge Ohioans to obtain concealed handgun licenses. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones in a Twitter exchange called on people to get a conceal and carry permit. “I have said it in the past and I said it (Wednesday) , people should get their conceal and carry permit and carry a gun where permitted. You don’t want to be that person hiding under the desk or in a closet waiting for someone to come rescue you. It may be too late.” Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer agrees. “I encourage all law abiding citizens to get Conceal Carry Permits,” he said. “I think it’s so important that we’re turning around the permits in 24 hours. We have to arm ourselves and protect ourselves because […] Read More

Mom Calls 911 for Mental Help With Her Son, Cops Show Up, Tase Him to Death While He’s Restrained

The parents maintain that the deputies were never in danger and that their son was not armed. Coweta County, GA—On November 20, sheriff deputies in Coweta County, Georgia were summoned to help subdue a man having a psychotic breakdown. They ended up tasing him to death. Chase Sherman, 32, his fiancée, and his parents, Kevin and Mary Ann Sherman, were returning from a vacation. During a layover at the Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta, Sherman started having hallucinations and acting agitated. According to his father, he “got nervous … about planes crashing, and he just didn’t feel comfortable on a plane…. He thought nobody recognized him. I said, ‘Chase, we’re fine. We’re going to get a car and drive home.’ He didn’t know where he was at.” They rented a car to drive the rest of the way to their home in Florida.  Sherman’s fiancée told his parents that he may […] Read More

Adam exposes the junk science being used by police and courts

Why fingerprinting is flawed:   “Take the case of Brandon Mayfield. He was arrested for the Madrid train bombings when the world’s top fingerprint experts said he was a perfect match for a print found at the scene.”  “It’s been shown that fingerprint analysts can unconsciously change their evaluations depending on the details of the case.”  Why lie detectors don’t detect lies:   “Humans are complicated. The truth isn’t something you can detect with a machine… Back in the Dark Ages, they would force criminals to hold a red hot iron to see if it burned them. If it did, it meant you were lying.” Truthful people fail polygraphs all the time, just because they’re sweaty and nervous. And all you have to do to beat it is stay super chill. Criminals do it all the time. Some infamous examples include Gary Ridgway, aka the Green River Killer…” “Larson […] Read More

Cops Now Stealing Your Stuff To ‘Protect You’ From People Who Might Steal Your Stuff

By: Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project | New Haven, CT — In a ridiculous move, ostensibly designed to protect citizens from theft, the New Haven police department has begun stealing things from innocent individuals. Yes, you read that correctly. The New Haven police department announced its plans this week to start stealing things from unsuspecting residents who leave their doors unlocked. If you are missing your valuables, it may not have been taken by a private thief, it could have been stolen by a public thief. According to Lt. Herbert Sharp of the NHPD, police are now taking private property from unlocked cars and bringing it to the station. This, of course, is done so to “deter theft.” Sharp assures the public that when his officers are opening the door to your property and removing your belongings, with no search warrant and no probable cause, that this is […] Read More
