WHERE WAS THE POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST BLACKS THAT COLIN KAEPERNICK COMPLAINS ABOUT?

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Malik McDowell was arrested after he was thrown out of an Atlanta area nightclub early Sunday morning. He raised hell when presented a $600 bill which he claimed he had already paid.

Video footage shows him verbally abusing two City of Chamblee cops who were taking him into custody. Here are some of the remarks he directed at a female cop and her male partner:

“Fuck both of ya'll hoe ass nigger, pussy ass cops, I bet I get out, I got more money than ya'll, ya'll ain't got enough money for me, pussy ass crackers, broke ass niggers”

“Bitch, I got money, that’s why I can talk shit...you'll be a broke bitch for the rest of your life. Bitchh, I got lawyer money…I'm rich, bitch, dumbass nigger...I got a lot of fucking money, you brokeass niggers.”

“I paid a million in taxes this fucking year. If I wanna call that bitch a bitch, I can [directed at the male partner]. Yes, I can. If I wanna call every officer a bitch, I can.”


He was jailed all in one piece. Where was the police brutality against blacks that Colin Kaepernick complains about?

Back in my time, the bitch and the dumbass nigger would have had to take McDowell to a hospital for some serious dental surgery.

I GOTTA ADMIT I HAVE NEVER HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE

by Bob Walsh

Jeremy Kerley is a professional jock, he plays ball for the Jets. He was recently suspended for four games for violating the NFL drug use policy when he turned in a bad test. His excuse was that a ghost must have tampered with the sample.

Strangely, the NFL has not so far bought into this excuse.

COLLEGE PROFESSOR TEACHING CLASS AT TEXAS PRISON GETS TRUE LOVE LESSON FROM INMATE

Texas prison teacher says inmate raped her at understaffed unit

By Keri Blakinger

Houston Chronicle
December 14, 2017

A Texas prison teacher tearfully called on Gov. Greg Abbott to charge the inmate she says raped her at an understaffed lock-up north of Huntsville.

Nicole Truelove plans to file a lawsuit against the state over the Nov. 13 sex assault inside a Ferguson Unit classroom with no working cameras and no guards in sight, she said at a Thursday press conference in Houston.

"This never should have happened; it could have been easily avoided," her attorney David Lindsay said. "And if changes aren't made by the Department of Criminal Justice, this will happen again."

The 2,400-inmate unit in unincorporated Madison County has a 25 percent vacancy rate for guards, according to TDCJ data.

"Whoever made the decision to understaff that unit, they should be held accountable," Lindsay said.

The department said it is conducting an internal review and has transferred the prisoner to another facility. The 25-year-old has a history of drug and burglary convictions.

"While correctional settings present unique challenges, the department is committed to providing a safe work environment for all employees," TDCJ spokesman Jason Clark said.

Truelove had only been on the job a few days when she spotted an inmate masturbating in class. After repeated warnings, she wrote him up.

But when class let out, the four-time felon stayed back, hiding behind the door.

The officers assigned to the area were nowhere in sight when the violent prisoner allegedly grabbed Truelove by the hair and slammed her against the door before assaulting her and threatening her children.

The new teacher reported the attack immediately and went to the hospital for a rape kit, she said Thursday.

"Yet there has not been one charge filed," she said. "Mr. Abbott, when will these charges be filed?"

Lindsay and co-counsel Randall Kallinen blamed unit security shortfalls for the attack. There were no cameras inside the classroom, and the lack of windows in the solid door made it a possible hiding place.

"Allowing violent felons to masturbate in front female employees creates one of the most hostile working atmospheres I have ever heard of," Kallinen said. "Combined with known blind spots and lack of guards it is the most irresponsible behavior imaginable."

Inmate-on-staff violence has risen slightly in recent years, TDCJ data shows.

By the end of September, Texas prisons had seen 67 serious staff assaults in 2017. Last year, the total reported major assaults on staff numbered more than 100 for the first time in at least 10 years.

Former union chief Lance Lowry pointed to the latest incident as evidence of the staffing shortages he warned about repeatedly in recent months, including during the hurricane and in the aftermath of a failed death row confession plot that forced the state to push back one killer's execution date.

"It doesn't surprise me that an incident of a sexual assault occurred against staff," he said. "Staff are sexually violated just about every day as far as inmates exposing themselves."

In addition to the high vacancy numbers, Lowry cited a 40 percent turnover rate as a troubling contributor to the problem.

"That leaves a massive amount of inexperience on that unit," he said. "This isn't the first employee to be sexually assaulted."

EDITOR’S NOTE: When I was on the faculty of Sam Houston State University, I did volunteer work as a group therapist at the Ferguson unit. It is a prison for young adults and has some tough hombres confined there.

I guess it is fair to say that Professor Truelove did not find true love at the Ferguson unit.

CROOKED HILLARY ONCE ‘PROSELYTIZED’ A SECRET SERVICE AGENT BY SLINGING A BIBLE AT HIM WHICH HIT HIM ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD

EXCLUSIVE: Clintons 'systematically destroyed' Secret Service's integrity and let Chinese generals walk into the White House with unchecked brown paper bags, claims ex-officer

By Daniel Bates

Bill and Hillary Clinton forced the Secret Service to undermine itself by 'systematically destroying' the rules that were put in place for their protection, a former officer who guarded them claims.

In his new book, New York Times best-selling author Gary Byrne writes that the Secret Service was nearly undone by serving the Clintons with 'blind loyalty' which they took advantage of for their own gain.

Agents were allegedly forced to collude with the Clintons in the 'Chinagate' campaign finance scandal in 1996 by ignoring the contents of brown paper bags brought into the White House by Chinese officials.

The problem was compounded by Secret Service leadership mistakenly thinking that the Clintons were 'invincible,' Byrne writes.

'The view from the front lines, however, was that something, somehow, was bound to ensnare them. It was simply a matter of the right scandal,' he writes.

Byrne served in federal law enforcement for nearly 30 years first in the Air Force Security Police, then in the Uniformed Division of the Secret Service where he guarded the Clintons.

His book, Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the US Secret Service, which is out next month, paints a picture of an agency in crisis which could be a danger to President Trump.

Byrne writes that the problems date back to the 1990s when the Clintons were in the White House.

The rot started because they would 'continually seek to systematically destroy the protocols that ensure protection', putting the Secret Service in an impossible positions.

Byrne writes that 'the agency had decided to err on the slide of blind loyalty and that was nearly its undoing'.

Referring to the Secret Service responsibility for investigating money counterfeiting, Byrne writes: 'How can a law enforcement agency maintain its integrity, say in policing counterfeiting, while admittedly having compromised integrity in the area of protection?'

For a while Secret Service did a 'good job' of keeping itself out of the various investigations into the Clintons such as the Whitewater controversy, a scandal in which the couple was investigated over their failed business venture, Byrne says.

But it was impossible to do so with Chinagate, where the Chinese government allegedly used shell companies to donate to Democrats to buy access for Chinese goods to be imported to the US.

The Secret Service 'knowingly allowed Chinese generals, disguised in civilian clothing, to meet administration personnel at the White House and logged them as 'business guests' at the administration's request so as to avoid transparency'.

The agency also 'willfully ignored the contents of the generals' paper bags brought to those meetings'.

The Clinton White House would later be accused of accepting bribes but with no papertrail it was very difficult to prove it.

Byrne's previous book, Crisis of Character, was just as damning about the Clintons and claimed that Hillary was so demanding that she drove many Secret Service agents to drugs and alcohol.

Hillary once threw a Bible at an agent on her detail and hit him on the back of the head, Byrne claimed. She also once gave Bill a black eye during a fight, he writes in the book.

In recent years the Secret Service has been battered by scandals of its own doing that have raised grave questions over its competence.

In 2008 an employee caused an 'immense' security breach when they left computer backup tapes on a train in Washington, D.C.

The scandal only came to light four years later in 2012.

That same year 12 agents were put under investigation for using prostitutes in Cartegena, Colombia, on the eve of President Barack Obama's official visit - in the very hotel where he was staying.

Eight quit their posts while the others were cleared of 'serious misconduct', prompting the President to brand them 'knuckleheads'.

Amid the fallout, former Secret Service agents and commentators agreed that it was the worst scandal to hit the organisation in decades.

Last year an intruder roamed the grounds of the White House for 15 minutes even though the alarms were going off - because the Secret Service could not find him.

And in a separate bungle two Secret Service agents including a top member of the President's personal detail drove a car into White House security barricades after drinking at a late night party.

In January a senior Secret Service agent in Denver wrote on Facebook that she wouldn't 'take a bullet' for President Trump.

Kerry O'Grady, the special agent in charge of the Secret Service's Denver district, said that the then President-elect was a 'disaster'.

THIS CHINAMAN WAS NOT TOO BRIGHT

Retired solider is killed after being fatally struck by suicidal woman he was trying to catch as she plunged to her death from 12 floors above

Daily Mail
December 12, 2017

This is the shocking moment a retired soldier tried to catch a suicidal woman who had leapt from her 12-storey home.

The woman hit him with such a force that both of them died on December 10 in north-west China.

The veteran, who worked as a security guard, was fatally struck by the falling woman as CCTV footage caught the tragic incident.

The incident happened at around 8:40am local time in the city of Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi Province where the woman - reported to be around 30 years of age - had been heard arguing loudly with another person in the apartment.

The 43-year-old guard, surnamed Li, had been patrolling around Century Ginwa Shopping Centre on the ground floor.

Residential homes are located from the fifth floor to 28th floor.

He is said to have spotted the woman in pink loungewear as she climbed out of her window at 11th floor in an attempt to commit suicide.

Witnesses said he shouted 'don't jump' but was forced to act quickly as she ignored his pleas.

Security footage shows the moment the brave guard took several steps forwards instead of fleeing the area. He extended his arms in a bid to catch the woman but was crushed by her weight.

'The man hesitated for a second but then he decided to fetch the woman. Sadly she hit him with such a strong force and they died. There were lots of blood on the floor,' said one witness.

Both reportedly suffered fatal injuries during the incident and were pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene.

Tributes are pouring in from all over China for the retired soldier, who is a Xi'an City native.

Reports said he is survived by a daughter just six years of age and two ailing parents who are both in their 80s.

Xi'an City police are still investigating the case.

BIENVENIDO A MEXICO Y ADIOS HIJO DE PUTA

Mexico’s New, Deadlier Crime Warlords

By Ioan Grillo

U.S. News & World Report
December 8, 2017

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – In this tepid capital of the Mexican state of Guerrero, government security spokesman Roberto Alvarez describes the complexity of the local crime map, from its Sierra Madre mountains to its Pacific coast.

Going north to the mineral-rich city of Iguala, he says, the area is dominated by gangsters who call themselves the "Guerreros Unidos," or Warriors United, a fragment of the older Beltran Leyva cartel, which is a break-off from the more notorious Sinaloa cartel. Turning west from Iguala, the highway then crosses into the territory of the so-called La Familia cartel, led by a local mobster nicknamed "El Guero" or Whitey, who is reported to be barely in his 20s.

This cell of La Familia is also battling a splinter group known as the "Tequileros" (the Tequila drinkers), which dominates a mountainous area above the highway that is known for heroin production. Fighting between these two groups as well as government forces has caused many residents to abandon their homes, leaving phantom villages.

Following the highway south, the road then twists into the domain of the "Caballeros Templarios," or Knights Templar, a once-mighty cartel that has been largely destroyed but has a few surviving outposts. Alvarez rattles off these groups before even beginning to describe the half dozen groups fighting over the state capital Chilpancingo and the sprawling seaside resort city of Acapulco.

"It's a very complicated crime environment, and this makes it difficult to keep order," says Alvarez, who sits at meetings every few days with regional commanders of the army, marines and police forces combating the cartels. "We have to track multiple organizations fighting each other all over the state. The many frontlines lead to a very high number of homicides."

Battles among this plethora of crime groups has made Guerrero one of the most violent states in Mexico this year, with more than 1,900 murders from January to the end of October in a population of 3.3 million. Guerrero boasts a murder rate that is six times higher than that of Louisiana, the U.S. state with the highest rate of murder in 2016.

Similar frontlines between splintered cartels cut through large swaths of Mexico, from the 2,000-mile border with the U.S. to the Caribbean coast. Mexico's so-called drug war now involves dozens of crime groups fighting each other in multiple battles crisscrossing the country.

This cartel fragmentation is one of the key reasons that Mexico is suffering a new high in overall violence. The nation's total body count has topped 20,800 in the first 10 months of 2017, the highest number this century.

Other factors have also led to the rising violence, such as an increasing production of heroin in Mexico amid epidemic opioid use in the United States. As heroin-producing areas become more valuable to cartels, they have increasingly bloody fights over the spoils. Guerrero state is one of the biggest sources of the black tar heroin made here.

But while Mexican traffickers have long supplied drugs – whether cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth or black tar – to American users, it has never faced such a splintered crime map.

"Cartel fragmentation is a big part of the story of why violence is increasing," says Alejandro Hope, a security analyst and former Mexican federal intelligence official. "This has really accelerated in the last couple of years. It's the changing nature of the game."

The new high in violence comes after a decade-long Mexican military crackdown on drug traffickers, which has been supported with billions of dollars' worth of U.S. equipment and training under the Mérida Initiative, a security agreement between Mexico and the U.S. aimed at tackling organized crime, including drug trafficking. That offensive has brought down thousands of traffickers but it has also helped create the new splintered crime map.

Decapitation's Deadly Spinoffs

Back in 2006, Mexican drug trafficking was dominated by four major cartels, with each possessing a monopoly on a section of the U.S. border. The Tijuana cartel trafficked into California, the Sinaloa cartel into Arizona, the Juarez cartel into New Mexico and West Texas, and the Gulf cartel into East Texas.

Over the ensuing decade, soldiers and police killed or arrested the leaders of all these cartels. The strategy was known as "cartel decapitation."

As organizations were attacked, they broke apart, with lieutenants vying for pieces of the empire. Cartel employees in drug-producing areas far from the border such as Guerrero and neighboring Michoacán formed their own crime groups. As security forces continued the offensive, the new groups themselves fragmented, breaking into smaller pieces.

Many older Mexican kingpins now sit in U.S. jails. The 60-year old Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the head of the Sinaloa cartel, was extradited north on Jan. 20, hours before President Donald Trump was sworn into office. The new leaders include many young hitmen, who are quicker to use violence when dealing with rivals.

With less access to international drug markets, the new crime groups also use their guns to get money locally, turning to kidnapping, shaking down businesses or stealing oil from pipelines.

In Chilpancingo, the local head of the chamber of commerce, Victor Ortega, says extortion has reached critical levels in the city. The cartels are demanding money from everyone from mom-and-pop stores to building contractors, he says. "It is already hard for small businesses to make it in Mexico's economy, but when you are forced to pay criminals it can drive people into bankruptcy."

Ortega has publicly railed against this extortion and subsequently received several death threats. He shows one that was sent by text to his phone.

The Struggle to End the Violence

Violence and insecurity has punished President Enrique Peña Nieto, who promised to reduce the murder rate when he took office in 2012. His popularity plummeted in 2014 after the disappearance of 43 student teachers in Guerrero at the hands of police officers who allegedly worked for the Guerreros Unidos cartel. During the past year, Peña Nieto's approval has languished below 30 percent, according to a poll by Reforma newspaper.

Mexico's constitution prohibits Peña Nieto from standing in Mexico's presidential race in 2018. But none of the potential candidates has offered any clear new ideas on how to tackle the violence. The front-runner, the leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, has focused on trying to tackle poverty but rarely mentioned the specific issue of cartels.

However, Hope, the security analyst, says the shift from huge drug cartels to dozens of smaller diverse crime groups could actually prove easier to fight in the long term. Countries such as Colombia have shown they can reduce crimes such as extortion and kidnapping with aggressive policing. "The criminals have to immerse themselves in a transaction with victims, and that is when you can arrest them," Hope says.

The older drug traffickers such as "El Chapo" Guzman also enjoyed a certain support in impoverished communities, where people saw the benefits of drug money. There are hundreds of ballads glorifying Guzman for delivering tons of cocaine to the "gringos." But the new crime warlords are unlikely to garner such backing, Hope says.

"The gangs have become more predatory and this changes the politics of crime fighting," he says. "They pose a major threat to people's life, liberty and property. The support of sections of Mexican society to drug cartels will be gone."

HOW DOES TALKING ABOUT POLICE BRUTALITY HELP INMATES TURN THEIR LIVES AROUND?

Correction officers are enraged over Colin Kaepernick visit to Rikers Island inmates

By Shawn Cohen and Daniel Prendergast

New York Post
December 12, 2017

The city allowed Colin Kaepernick to make a surprise visit to Rikers Island on Tuesday to meet with inmates — enraging correction officers who feel the stunt will only endanger them.

The former San Francisco 49ers star spoke to groups of inmates during two sessions Tuesday morning at the jail’s George Motchan Detention Center, where he pontificated on social justice issues and talked about his decision to kneel during the national anthem, which sparked nationwide outrage.

“That’s crazy to me to have a person like Colin Kaepernick in prison talking about police brutality,” said an officer who attended the event. “It was insulting for me to be there.”

“In the inmates’ eyes, we are the police when they’re locked up.”

The morning started off with Kaepernick attending breakfast in the warden’s office before heading over to the “Peace Center,” where he conducted two 45-minute sessions with prisoners clad in gray jumpsuits.

The first group was 14 inmates — six adults and eight adolescents.

A volunteer at the jail introduced Kapernick, who gave a 10-minute talk before fielding questions and signing autographs.

“They were basic questions, like what’s it like to play in the NFL,” said the source.

“Then they asked him about taking a knee, why was he doing it. He said he was doing it to call attention to police brutality.”

“He said he felt that, being a man of means, he felt obligated to take a stance on what he believes in.”

In the second session, which consisted of four adults and 10 adolescents, Kaepernick was more direct on his feelings about police brutality, the source said.

“He came out of the gate with the police brutality … and he said the NFL was keeping him out of the game for speaking out.”

The source described the atmosphere in the room as calm and added that Kaepernick did not say anything derogatory about police or corrections officers.

“He was telling them how they could do better in life, that they’ve made mistakes, that this wasn’t the end for them, that they could go on to do good things,” he said.

The move drew the ire of corrections union officials, who said the cop-hating athlete’s visit will only serve to endanger their members by emboldening criminals who see themselves as victims of a corrupt criminal justice system.

“The inmates see a guy like this coming in, it’s almost like the administration is condoning being anti-law enforcement,” said Patrick Ferraiuolo, president of the Correction Captains’ Association. “His presence alone could incite these guys.”

Rikers Island has seen several instances of violence perpetrated against guards at the hands of inmates in recent years.

“We’ve got enough issues in the facility with inmates assaulting staff,” Ferraiuolo said. “His presence, what he stands for, certainly doesn’t help.”

Peter Thorne, a Department of Correction spokesman, said Kaepernick visited the jail to “share a message of hope and inspiration.”

In addition to speaking with inmates, Kaepernick visited with uniformed and non-uniformed Rikers employees, Thorne said.

“This will only encourage inmates to continue to attack correction officers at a time when we need more protection,” said Elias Husamudeen, president of the Correction Officers Benevolent Association.

Husamudeen pointed out that Kaepernick wore socks depicting cops as pigs while playing in a 2016 NFL game.

Husamudeen laid blame for the ill-conceived move squarely at the feet of the mayor.

“Once again, correction officers find themselves caught in Mayor de Blasio’s political con game,” Husamudeen said.

“This is yet another brazen display of the hypocrisy of this mayor, who pretends to support us in public, yet does everything possible to jeopardize our security in private.”

City Hall spokesman Eric Phillips defended the visit, saying: “This is a guy using his celebrity to help young adults turn their lives around, to his own significant professional cost. He should be applauded.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: “He should be applauded.” Eric Phillips has a fucked up mind! Kaepernick should be horsewhipped for fostering his hatred of the police to jail inmates.

What has this country come to when a worthless piece of shit who disrespects our flag, our country and our police is an honored celebrity?
