As part of a ridiculous crackdown on distracted driving in Nevada in pursuit of zero driving fatalaties, they are giving tickets out for doing anything it seems other than driving. I guess you can't change the radio station, put on sunglasses, adjust your visor, pick your nose, etc if you run into the wrong officer. The Nevada Highway Patrolman cited Stephanie Fragoso on April Fools' day for putting on makeup and said "'It could have been anything; you could have been drinking water, shaving your legs."
Land of the free or home of the slave. The latter more so if you are into doublespeak with proof that FBI crime stats show an average of an arrest every two seconds and also the US has 5% of the world 's population and a quarter of the prisoners!
The link below sources an epic Wall Street Journal article "For More Teens, Arrests by Police Replace School Discipline" on school students being arrested for trivial and nonsensical "crimes": "children in schools systems across the U.S. are being arrested or turned over to police custody for doing things that children have always done since the beginning of time. Things such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum."
The author of the article below points out how the corporate elite are exempt from this type of Zero-Tolerance bullshit. Also relevant is how lives are ruined by the Injustice System, "of Chicago public schools by a University of Texas and a Harvard researcher found the high-school graduation rate for children with arrest records was 26%, compared with 64% for those without".
In the realm of adulthood another article shows how a woman was jailed for not mowing her lawn! Following the link there is a list of some insane examples of the police state the author listed at the end of the article.
This is from the article:
“[S]entencing in media leak cases has historically been relatively light,” with only 24 months of jail time for the three whistleblowers prosecuted from 1973 to 2005.
However, ACLU noted that Obama has “secured 526 months of prison time for national security leakers,” with the majority given to Chelsea Manning, who was sentenced to 35 years.
When it comes to prosecuting whistleblowers, the Obama Administration holds the record with eight, which is more than double the three who were prosecuted by previous presidents.
The three journalists who were indicted prior to Obama’s presidency were Daniel Ellsberg in 1973, Samuel Morrison in 1985, and Larry Franklin in 2005.
Since Obama’s time in office, those prosecuted include Thomas Drake and Shamai Leibowitz in 2010, Chelsea Manning, John Kiriakou, and Donal Sachtleben in 2013, and Stephen Kim in 2014. The cases of Jeffrey Sterling and Edward Snowden are currently pending.
This is sick shit, new evidence from recordings of the Albuquerque Police Department before murdering a homeless camper, James Boyd. Of course the officer has not been charged for any wrongdoing. Seems Boyd was shot in the lower back but if he turned around he would have hit his mark, or he was trying to shoot through his back to his parts. Bring s twisted way of viewing the term marks-man-ship.
"Sandy: For this f***ing lunatic? I'm going to shoot him in the penis with a shotgun here in a second."
Sounds like what Phillip Zimbardo termed the Lucifer effect, again at work with psychopigs unnaturally holding dominion over the sheeple flocks. Here are some excerpts from the article:
WDEF reviewed the video several times and here is an account of what was seen:
· Soon after the driver was taken into custody, officers were seen going to the passenger side of the car. Then an officer is seen throwing Medina-Resendiz to the ground. Medina-Resendiz was on his side then the officer appears to grab him by the neck and say, “I’m going to Fu$%^@g kick your ass”, while standing over top of Medina-Resendiz.
· Soon after that statement was made, Kaylor comes over and holds Medina-Resendiz’s head down while telling him to stop resisting. Then an officer is heard saying, “let’s shock this mother$%^&r.” An officer is also heard telling Medina-Resendiz, “We’re going to shock your ass.” The officer told Medina-Resendiz several times to put his hands behind his back while they were on top of him. Then the sound of a taser could be heard and Medina-Resendiz screaming in pain.
· After Medina-Resendiz was tased, Officer Kaylor, who is much larger than the Medina-Resendiz laid on top of him. Then the video showed Kaylor punching Medina-Resendiz seven times to the back of his head.
"The incident was investigated by the Red Bank Police Internal Affairs division in July, and all the officers involved were exonerated from allegations of excessive use of force."
