This Targeting Cop's final transmission of the year. 2014 has most undoubtedly been a year that has seen unprecedented attention brought to the high crimes and atrocities of police terrorism. As always, such acts committed by these police MONSTERS have come in the form of systemic, state-sanctioned, Black genocide. Although, there have certainly been high-profiles cases of Whites (women and mentally ill/homeless men mostly) having been murdered and victimized by police terrorist thugs. #Blacklivesmatter, #alllivesmatter, and #handsupdon'tshoot have been among the most popular hash-tags this year. And because such unprecedented media (and international media) attention has been brought to these cases of police murdering the innocent, millions of people have taken part in near-revolutionary actions all over the country. Such actions have taken place in dozens of American cities (including Portland) in solidarity with Ferguson, New York City, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, and other cities that have had high-profile police murders this year. Ordinary local residents have gone from occupied, targeted peoples to determined activists. They have protested and bravely stood up to criminal police thugs. The mothers, fathers, family and friends of police murder victims have done every bit the same, to say no less. And when (mostly, if not all-White) grand juries cleared cop after dirty filthy pig-ass murdering cop of any wrong-doing, even in cases where a coroner's office had declared HOMICIDE in deaths at cops' hands, this drove people to even further street actions.
2014 has seen some grim anniversaries, trials from previous cases have seen conclusion, hyper-militarism of police and their actions have been put on full display, and police thugs along with their reactionary, racist supporters have been closing ranks all over the country. 2014 has also seen the much appreciated deaths of several worthless cops, the passing of brave martyrs, and the (still inconclusive) manhunt for one alleged cop-killer.
This final entry of the year will re-cap some of the major events of 2014 that have been covered here previously, plus, a few that TC had not managed to cover. This, by no means, is a complete nor comprehensive list. Many stories will be left out, due to the sheer volume of police atrocities and [otherwise] note-worthy events. Indeed, it is nearly impossible for one person to keep up.
Five-Yr. "Anniversary" - the Murder of Oscar Grant.
January 1st 2014 marked five years since brother Oscar Juliuss Grant III was murdered in cold blood by a sub-human beast of a transit cop in Oakland, CA.
Johannes Mehserle, the monster directly responsible for Grant's death, was a member of BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) at that time. Most people ought to be thoroughly familiar with this, one of the most infamous cases of police murder ever in this country, in contemporary history. The short version is that on Thursday January 1st 2009, Grant and friends were celebrating the new year. At some point, an alleged fight had broken out between Grant's friends and another group of people on a transit train. BART cops were summoned, Grant, along with others were detained on the station platform, and Grant was executed on the spot - on his stomach on the ground, hands cuffed behind his back. He was never armed, never resisting, and it was never determined that Grant had even been directly involved in the initial brawl... which might/might not have happened.
Mehserle fled to Nevada shortly afterwards, like the yellow-bellied coward that he is. He was eventually extradited back to CA to face murder charges. In July 2010, Mehserle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. For this, he was sentenced to two years in prison. Two years... to the all-White jury responsible for Mehserle's fate, two years was all that Grant's life was worth. Credit for jail time served prior to trial cut even this measly sentence in half, however. For the murder of Oscar J. Grant, Mehserle served about 11 months in jail, before being released in June 2011.
In May 2013 Mehserle was charged with unemployment fraud. In June 2014 he testified during a civil suit trial, which has yet to see final conclusion. Should Mehserle's fat ugly head pop up again in 2015, TC will be reporting.
Retired Cop Capo in Theater Text Murder
On January 15th, retired police captain Curtis Reeves Jr. murdered an innocent husband and father in a Florida movie theater... over texting.
Reeve's victim Chad Oulson was texting his three year old daughter's baby sitter minutes before a film screening. Reeves, Oulson, and their accompanying wives were at a movie theater in Wesley Chapel, FL when the murder occurred. A life-long bully and violent thug even in his old age, Reeves somehow became enraged that a fellow movie-goer would dare text someone before the film begins. Reeves demanded that Oulson ceased all communications with his daughter's baby sitter. When Oulson rightly refused to be bullied, Reeves pulled out a weapon and gunned him down. The victim's wife Nicole Oulson was shot in the hand, in the process. This crime happened in a crowded theater with dozens of by-standers, whose lives were endangered. The movie theater itself has signs posted that specifically prohibits all weapons, concealed and otherwise. After the shooting, Reeves was arrested and charged with murder in the second degree.
Months later, it was revealed that just minutes before he murdered Oulson over texting, Reeves himself had been texting his son, who was planning to meet his parents at the theater, but was running late.
A timeline of Reeves' pending murder case, from the beginning, can be read HERE.
Reeves, who's currently out on bail, had a court appearance in November. A trial date was supposed to have been set during this time, but that did not happen. Reeves is scheduled to appear in court again on January 29th 2015 for another pretrial hearing. By this time, it will have been more than a year since Chad Oulson was shot dead. It looks as if pig Reeves is trying to wait out the clock until he dies of natural causes, thus, cheating the system. So here's hoping a definite trial date will be set soon, and Reeves lives long enough to finally see punishment for what he did. The sad and awful fact about this case is, the perpetrator is so goddamned old and decrepit, that even a life sentence would not be nearly enough to adequately satisfy justice here. In any case, this rotten son-of-a-bitch does not deserve to live out his remaining days a free man.
Monsters Who Beat Homeless Man to Death Win Acquittal
By police killing standards, the murder of Kelly Thomas was particularly disturbing. So savage was his death at the fists of cops, so horrific his injuries, that it can be difficult to find just words in describing what was done to him.
There is a great amount of detail to this graphic horror story. Those details can be gone over in the link provided above. What YOU need to know is that Kelly Thomas was an innocent man living homeless in Fullerton, CA. On July 10th 2011, Thomas was electrocuted, punched, kicked, beaten, and bludgeoned to death by six bloated gang members of the Fullerton Police Gestapo (FPG). Thomas had committed no crime. He had no weapons. He was not on drugs. He posed a threat to no one. Thomas's "crime" was being homeless and gathering cigarette butts in a vacant lot. All six of the pigs involved in his gruesome murder were initially rewarded with paid vacation. Three of those pigs, however, would eventually be thrown under the bus... just not nearly far enough.
Former officers Joe Wolfe, Jay "Glasseye" Cicinelli, and Manuel Ramos (no relation to Rafael Ramos, one of two NYC pigs executed by cop-killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley earlier this month) would all lose their jobs and face murder charges. Cicinelli and Ramos would be tried together, with a separate murder trial for Wolfe set for a later date. On Tuesday January 14th 2014, Cicinelli and Ramos were acquitted in the murder of Thomas. After that, the local prosecutor announced that charges against Wolfe would not be pursued any further. Despite his murder having been caught on video surveillance, and graphic photos of his unrecognizable face in a hospital bed which gained international attention, not a shred of justice was ever met out for Thomas's murder. Three obese, steroid-abusing pigs got fired, that's all.
One Yr. Anniversary of Chris Dorner's Reign of Justice
Cop-killers are admittedly a mixed bag. Some are unrepentant criminals who have murdered innocent people, in addition to worthless putrid cops. A few cop-killers have been White supremacists, so, cannot fully support. Inherently, neutralizing a dirty filthy lawman is typically a suicide mission. And in such extreme yet rare cases where WAR has actually been brought to the warrior cop [for a change], these pigs aren't typically known for taking prisoners. This is universally known. And it's safe to say that almost all individuals whom have committed such desperate, yet brave acts have endured inhumane levels of trauma - be it recently or lifelong. Christopher Dorner is an exception. His acts were purely revolutionary and just. February 12th 2014 marked the one year anniversary of Dorner's last stand against the corrupt and criminal system, of which he was once apart of.
Local Rap Shows Under Siege By Portland Pigs
The Portland Police Gestapo (PPG) may not be among the most deadly terrorist police regimes in Amerikkka, but its racism and sheer corruption sure do match toe-to-toe with the worst. And in a city which is already 70% White, with a police force which is virtually all-White (and male), this places the city of Portland high on a troubling list. Unlawful bullying tactics by the PPG have been on public display many times before. One of the most infamous incidents of such behavior in 2014 was when cop thugs shut down a Hip Hop show here in Portland.
On Saturday March 1st, local Rap artists were performing at The Blue Monk in Portland, OR. Everything had be just fine, there was no trouble what so ever. That changed when Portland police thugs appeared in full force, harassing civilians, blocking traffic, and being dicks in general. Cops cited so-called "gang activity" for the overwhelming police presence, then later "over-crowding". Both excuses given were out-right lies. By the time the night's headliner Illmaculate had taken the stage, he announced that he would not be performing, due to continuous and unwarranted police intimidation.
After this shameful incident, it would later be revealed what many have suspected or claimed for years: that Portland cops are thoroughly racist and that they deliberately target Hip-Hop shows. The Blue Monk itself was shuttered permanently on April 29th, due to its lease having been bought out by an undisclosed party. Many have suspected the venue's untimely demise (which has mostly hosted Jazz, Blue Grass, and Folk Rock shows in the past) to have been at least partially due to all the controversy and negative press brought on by the Portland police back in March. Such accusations, however valid, remain only rumor to this day.
Lovelle Mixon's 5-Yr. Anniversary Honored W/ New Docu.
March 21st 2014 marked five years since brother Lovelle Mixon made his last brave stand against vile police terrorists in Oakland, CA. Forever shall he be remembered for the fearless street warrior that he was!
The story/legend of Mixon cannot be overstated. All the details can be gone over in the above link. In the interests of keeping it on-point, in March 2009 brother Mixon, the initial target of a racist profiling at the dirty hands of the Oakland Police Gestapo (OPG), had taken radical measures to defend himself - as every citizen has the Right to do. At some point a gun battle ensued, and Mixon was able to neutralize four gang members of the OPG, whose names are not worth re-mentioning here. Following a hysterical manhunt, Mixon eventually fell by police bullets on March 21st, as he found himself out-numbered and out-gunned. He has been memorialized by common residents, street activists, and the people who were closest to him ever since. One must keep in mind, what the atmosphere was like back then (and still is): Oakland was essentially a city under siege, not too much unlike Palestine. Except with police terrorists being the occupiers, instead of IDF Zionist monsters. The murder/execution of Oscar Grant, an innocent, had just occurred a few months prior. And Oakland itself is an American city which has historically known police-state terror, more so than most others.
Coinciding with the five-year anniversary of his last stand, a documentary chronicling the life and death of brother Lovelle began screenings at select theaters both local and national. Titled 'Ghosts of March 21st', the film not only focused on Mixon's young life and last moments, but expands to cover the larger situation of police regime terror which has plagued Oakland for decades.
Occupy Oakland Hero Scott Olsen Settles With City/Police
Staying in Oakland for a bit longer, the city sees another hero making news. First for resisting militarized police terror, nearly paying with his life, then reaching a multi-million settlement with the city years later.
Former marine and war veteran Scott Olsen had grown wary of war and violence committed against the innocent. Having served two tours of corporate duty in Iraq doing the government's bidding at first, Oslen returned a changed, reformed, and much better human. Becoming a determined peace activist, he jumped into the Occupy movement as it took hold in cities across the country in 2011, including Oakland. It was in the streets of Oakland where Olsen met the true enemy. While marching in solidarity with other peaceful activists, Olsen was shot at close range with a beanbag round by a riot cop in Oct. 2011. During the Occupy movement, Oakland saw some of the most horrendous police atrocities and human rights abuses in the country. The city was absolutely under police siege, and Olsen (whether deliberately targeted, or fired upon at random by mindless, gestapo control freaks) found himself a casualty of war. When fellow marchers ran to Olsen's rescue, they too found themselves under police attack. Having been hit directly in the head with a so-called "less-than-lethal" beanbag round, the Iraqi war vet's skull was shattered and he nearly died. Images of Olsen's bloody face and severe injuries by Oakland cops went viral, and he became a symbol not just the Occupy movement, but a symbol of mindless police-state terrorism in America.
Olsen eventually recovers from his injuries, but continues to deal with physical and psychological impairments which will likely affect him for life. On Friday March 21st 2014, Olsen finally reaches a settlement with Oakland, for $4.5 million. Two of the gestapo pigs involved in the aggravated assault and attempted murder of Olsen have since been identified as officer Paul Figueroa and sergeant Roland Holmgren, though they have not been punished in any way. Another pig identified as officer Robert Roche had actually been fired for launching a tear gas canister into the group of citizens attempting to aid a critically wounded Olsen. However, Nazi pig Roche has since managed to win back his sorry-ass job through arbitration (and a slick, union-appointed police lawyer) - despite the brazen war crime he had committed. This sickening decision was made in July 2014. The pig who actually shot Olsen has never been publicly identified.
MayDay Actions See Uptick in Police Violence
The first of May (MayDay) has been internationally known as a global day of action, recognizing workers rights. Over the years, other progressive/leftist movements have joined MayDay rallies in collective solidarity, including immigrants rights, the $15 minimum wage movement (15 now), anti-fascist/racist, anti-capitalists, and the demand for corporate accountability. Sine it is the job of the police to carry out the marching orders of their corporate/political masters, such annual MayDay events have also seen an increase of global police terrorism.
2014 saw some of the worst state violence and human rights abuses committed by police terrorists. Media reports and live feeds poured in from cities all over the world of brutal crack-downs upon peaceful MayDay marches by cops, who were always, no matter what city or country, highly militarized. It was during this time when despotic police regimes everywhere would unveil their full arsenal of weaponry to use against peaceful, non-violent activists. Particularly severe police tactics and oppression have been seen in Istanbul, but others cities as well. Here in the America, Seattle saw a very high level of police-state violence against ordinary citizens. Then again, anyone who knows WTO 1999 should not be surprised at actions by the Seattle Police Gestapo (SPG) during MayDay 2104.
Seattle cops use pepper spray canisters to douse non-violent activists. This scene (and much worse) would repeat itself in many other cities around the world on May 1st 2014.
Brazil World Cup Sees frightening Advances in State-Police Terror
Massive, media-driven, highly commercial sporting events such as the Olympics, the World Cup, the Superbowl, etc. have not only been a showcase for cities and nations to put their top-tier athletes on display. They've also been a chance for terrorist police regimes - local, state, and federal - to showcase their top-tier advances in weaponry, the latest body armor, the most fashionable anti-ballistic helmets, and bizarre new toys for crowd control. The Fifa/Brazil World Cup of 2014 saw all of this and more, with a dramatic rise of the police/security/surveillance apparatus.
Even though South America as a whole has gone sharply progressive and Left over the past 12-16 years, following hundreds of years of colonization, financial/debt slavery, and imposed puppet despots, Brazil remains a conservative/Libertarian Hell. The Portuguese-speaking nation is currently governed by a barely moderate presidente who privatized Brazil's airports in order to "prepare" the country for the World Cup, even as public transportation crumbles. There is also a massive "too-big-to-fail" police/security apparatus in place which seems to operate independently of the govt. itself. Many hundreds of thousands of citizens used the cup to draw global attention to Brazil's many endless plights and express their anger towards the Fédération Internationale de Football Association or Fifa. They were met with a state-police and security/surveillance matrix so vast, as to be matched by only few others on Earth.
Columns of goose-stepping robo-cops march down a street in São Paulo, prior to games.
If you want to imagine the future...: A gauntlet of inhuman rob-cops stands "guard" outside a World Cup event in 2014. Not an inch of human skin is exposed. The future of law enforcement.
Brazilian/Fifa cop thugs seen here sexually assaulting this young girl. Business as usual in Brazil...
Cops, Vigilantes Die in Bizarre Vegas Rampage
Seven months before America was "galvanized" by news of two cops losing their lives in NYC, a manic crime spree in Las Vegas would leave two cops, a civilian do-gooder, and their assailants dead. This incident however, would receive far less media attention because the dead cops, innocent civilian, and the married couple who killed them were all White. But in terms of police being shot dead and the bizarre circumstances surrounding (and leading up to) what happened, this was a stand-out event worth noting.
On June 8th 2014 Jerad and Amanda Miller walked into a pizzeria in Las Vegas and neutralized two wretched cops, as they ate. They then fled to a near-by Walmart where they murdered an innocent man, before getting into a gun battle with cops. As police closed in, Amanda shot her husband in the chest before committing suicide. The Walmart shopper they killed was Joseph Wilcox. The two pigs they killed were officers Lyn Beck and Igor Soldo. The Millers had left a long digital trail online, expressing their anti-govt. and Libertarian beliefs. In the past, the two have had loose associations with both the Tea Party, Patriot, and Occupy movements. They were also nerds who attended comic/fantasy conventions and dressed in cosplay a great deal. There are many photos of Jerad and Amanda dressed as 'The Joker' and 'Harley Quinn', the infamous arch villain couple from the Batman series.
Joseph Wilcox, shot and killed by Amanda Miller on June 8th 2014.
Months prior to their deaths, the Millers had taken part in a standoff at the Clive Bundy ranch in NV against officers from the Bureau of Land Management. The couple were later kicked off the property for expressing violent rhetoric that was not on-point with ranch protester's main goals. The Miller's respective families claimed their bodies on June 13th. Jerad's body was sent to Richland, WA, where he reportedly grew up. Amanda's body was sent to Indiana. Wilcox, the Walmart shopper murdered by the couple, was buried in Las Vegas on June 22nd.
The Murder of Eric Garner
The situation in America was already very bad, as it had been all year. Things would take a sharp turn for the worst (and would mark events for the rest of the year), when brother Eric Garner was be murdered by police thugs on July 17th 2014.
Weeks before the murder of Michael Brown, Garner's cop-inflicted death would become a lightening rod for nation-wide recognition of how People of Color are routinely treated by cops. What made this particular killing stand out was that the entire incident was captured on video. With such unmistakable clarity in both the video and audio, no one who watched this graphic footage could deny what was done to the Staten Island resident on that day. Of all the NYC pigs directly involved in Garner's murder, officer Daniel Pantaleo would be the only one to even face a grand jury's scrutiny. As has been typical of cases all over the country (and how things would go for the rest of the year), scumbag cop Pantaleo would be cleared of all criminal wrong-doing on December 3rd.
This, despite the fact that a NYC coroner's office had ruled Garner's death a HOMICIDE. The only person in the Garner case that would face any criminal charges, is the man who FILMED IT! Ramsey Orta, the man who used his mobile device to capture the crime as it happened, has been retaliated against by NYC mafia police thugs for months now. They've also gone after his family, as well. This is not a police force assigned to protect and serve the public. They are a mafia criminal gang! People thought shit was bad, soo soo bad. They were about to get much worse...
Nazi Cop Kruger Gets Slate Wiped Clean
Portland police cappo and ghoulish Nazi dipshit Mark Kruger made major headlines again this year. Kruger is one of the most infamous cops here in Portland. He's mostly known for being a belligerent, abusive, control freak with a bizarre Nazi fetish. Kruger is documented as having dressed up in Nazi cosplay and prancing around town giving Sieg Heil salutes and erecting tributes to dead Nazi soldiers in the city's public parks. In July 2014, as part of a settlement with the city, Kruger managed to have two disciplinary marks stricken from his file, granting him (professionally) a clean slate.
In addition to all that Nazi shit, Kruger has also harassed and threatened a female subordinate, engaged in evidence tampering, and physically abused peace activists. Two of these transgressions have resulted in the two disciplinary actions that had been on his file. For setting up plagues in a city public park commemorating dead Nazi war criminals, Kruger was suspended for 80 hours without pay in 2010. For harassing former female lieutenant, Kristy Galvan, then retaliating against Galvan when she tried to complain on him, he received a letter of reprimand in 2014. In addition to having these two disciplinary actions wiped from his personal file, Kruger was also awarded $5,000 - a reimbursement of that 80 hour suspension four years prior. This was all apart of some bizarre settlement deal struck between Kruger, his attorney, Galvan, and the city of Portland (Galvan was suing the city for her mistreatment. She received $50,000 as part of the settlement, and has since left the Portland police). A deal that apparently, City Council new nothing about, the details of which mayor Charlie Hales knew little of.
Kruger was a beat, bitch-ass regular cop when he first erected those Nazi plaques somewhere between 1999 and 2001. He was a police cappo (captain) by the time of his suspension in 2010. He is now head of the Portland police regime's "Drugs and Vice" division. He should have been fired years ago. Instead, Kruger has enjoyed steady promotion. One more example of the Portland police and its famous cronyism.
The Murder of Johnathan Crawford
Between the police killings of Eric Garner on July 17th and Mike Brown on Aug. 9th, the senseless summary execution of Johnathan Crawford III got a bit overlooked. This was unfortunate, but again, with so many murders of unarmed, innocent Blacks by police terrorists, it is difficult to keep tally. However, in the midst of all else that was happening in August, reports of Crawford's murder were starting to come out. And each detail was more sickening than the one before.
On August 5th 2014, John Crawford was gunned down by pigs in a Walmart store in Beavercreek, OH. At the time, Crawford was holding toy pellet gun, which he had picked up off the shelf. The toy guns were available at the store for purchase. Crawford was leaning on the butt of the gun and on the phone with his girlfriend when bloodthirsty cops approached him, barking orders. Crawford had literally no time to react, before he was blown away in a hail of police gun fire.
Absolutely none of the nuances that might possibly have muddled the Garner and Brown murders just a little, had existed at all here. Crawford did not have time to engage nor argue with cops. He had no time to try and reason with these monsters, nor assert his rights. He had no time to run away nor think about his situation. Nor was he ever accused of any wrong-doing prior to his death. Crawford was shopping, talking on his phone, and not a damned thing more. And within two seconds of cops appearing on the scene, Crawford was lying on the floor bleeding out. Another shopper, an innocent woman identified as Angela Williams, had died of a heart attack - brought on by the panic cops caused as they opened fire inside the crowded store.
Pigs had been responding to a false 911 call of a man "waving around a weapon, loading it, and pointing it at people". That 911 caller has since been identified as neck-beared, obese, racist piece-of-shit Ronald Ritchie. Ritchie would go on to change his story a few times, before admitting he LIED about what Crawford doing with the [toy] gun. As was in Eric Garner's case, the death of John Crawford had officially been ruled a HOMICIDE by a local coroner's office. But despise all of this, a grand jury (once again) cleared officers David Darkow and Sean Williams of all wrong doing! Not only that, but racist cop-caller Ritchie himself has not faced any criminal charges to this day!
Since then, Crawford's family has filed a wrongful death suit against the Beavercreek police regime, as well as Walmart. They are also seeking legal action against Ritchie. In a disturbing turn involving this case, video was recently released showing Crawford's girlfriend Tasha Thomas being aggressively interrogated by obese terrorist pig Rodney Crud for over an hour! Thomas was never accused of a crime... she was picked up and taken into a police station shortly after police monsters murdered Crawford. Only towards the end of this unlawful interrogation, did detective Crud inform Thomas that Crawford was dead.
McBride Killer GUILTY Verdict
In a rare moment of positive news, the racist cretin responsible for the murder of Renisha McBride was declared guilty!
Again, all prudent details regarding this case can be accessed in above link provided. In November 2012, 19 year old Renisha McBride was driving back to her home in Detroit, MI, after leaving a friend's house late that night. In an accident which would prove to be fateful, McBride lost control of her car, crashing it. She survived and was able to escape her wrecked vehicle, but was injured, dazed, intoxicated, and possibly sustaining a concussion. McBride walked for several miles along a dark and secluded road just outside Detroit, when she had come upon Theodore Wafer's house. She knocked on the door, seeking help. When Wafer answered his front door, he pointed a shotgun at McBride's head, and pulled the trigger. Police would later arrive to find her body in Wafer's front yard, with a devastating gunshot wound to the head. Wafer would later be put on trial for the young woman's murder. On August 7th 2014, Wafer was found guilty of 2nd degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and a felony weapons charge. On Sept. 3rd, he was sentenced to between 17 to 30 years in prison.
Wafer is appealing his rightful conviction. Until then, he currently rots in the Michigan Dept. of Corrections Alger Correctional Facility in Munising, MI.
The Murder of Michael Brown
No doubt, there has been a slow genocide of Black people in America since the arrival of the first slave carriers upon this country's Eastern shoreline. Never quite as systemic nor overt as that of the Native Aboriginals (not quite), but a genocide nonetheless. Police have been the absolute foot soldiers, the brown shirts, to carry out this policy of genocide against Blacks for hundreds of years. 2014 proved to have been not much of a better year than any preceding it. Perhaps more people are paying attention, which is obviously good. Perhaps many people have just gotten sick and tired. Perhaps it was just that time. The murder of 18 year old, college-bound Michael Brown by a White peckerwood cop in Ferguson, MI was that last straw, and people were fed up!
If you're reading this, then you know the story: on Saturday August 9th 2014 Mike Brown was walking with a friend down a residential street in Ferguson, a mostly Black suburb of St. Louis, MO. Officer Darren Wilson, a violent racist gang member of the Ferguson Police Gestapo (FPG) attempted a "stop 'n frisk" on Brown, pretext: walking in the street. From this point details remain forever obscured. What is established fact is this:
- At some point Brown attempted to flee for his life.
- Pig Wilson shot Brown as he was running.
- Brown surrendered with his hands up, pleading with pig Wilson not to shoot.
- Wilson gunned him down, as he attempted to surrender, hands in the air.
- Brown was shot at 12 times, ten of those bullets striking him.
- His body was left in the street where he fell for approximately 4.5 hours that Saturday afternoon.
- Brown was unarmed and never posed a threat to anyone.
It would be weeks before Wilson was finally identified as the pig who murdered Brown, though some independent sources have leaked his name earlier. Brown's killing, as well as resident's and the police's response, had already made national headlines by this point. Now ALL HELL would precede to break loose, as well it should have!
Targeting Cops has provided a great deal of coverage to the case of Mike Brown. All details of what happened between August and December regarding this can be referenced in this blog's archives. For historical purposes, here are the basics of what followed: Local residents had expressed not only their outrage at an 18 year old child having been so callously gunned down by this White pig cop. But they were expressing frustration from many years of historical mistreatment and abuse at the hands of an almost all-White police regime, and an all-White city council. This rage grew nationally, and the still recent murder of Eric Garner (among the police murders of other Blacks that have received less attention in 2014) helped stoke those flames. Individual cops and racist capitulators alike from all over the country closed ranks behind Wilson. President Obama was forced to pretend him gave a damn. And Brown's grieving parents were thrust onto the world stage.
The police response to people marching in the streets of Ferguson was an orgy of hyper-militarized violence. Journalists attempting to cover events on the ground were roundly attacked, assaulted, and arbitrarily arrested (without charge) by cops. Agent provocateurs were sent into rallies to stir up trouble. And international human rights groups have soundly condemned the conduct of the police in Ferguson. Later in Dec. a mostly White grand jury would clear Wilson of all criminal wrong-doing, and the whole big mess would happen all over again.
The Murder of Darrien Hunt
In yet another high profile case which stuck out for its bizarre details (yet, predictable and abysmal outcome), this year saw the murder of Darrien Hunt.
On September 10th 2014, 22 year old Darrien Hunt was ruthlessly gunned down by thuggish gang members of the Saratoga Springs Police Gestapo (SSPG) in the Mormon Hellhole of Utah. Hunt, at the time, was cosplaying an Anime character. He was carrying a toy/replica samurai sword. The two pigs responsible for Hunt's murder have later been identified as officer Nicholas Judson and Cpl. Matthew Schauerhamer. The terrorist police regime there would immediately claim that Hunt had "swung" the sword at officers, forcing them to "defend" themselves. This was a bold-faced LIE, as was later proven by both video surveillance showing Hunt running for his life, and autopsy results showing Hunt had been shot multiple times... all in the back.
Video still showing Hunt surrounded by cop thugs.
Despite all the evidence indicating criminal actions by cops, a grand jury nonetheless declined to brings felony murder charges in Hunt's death. Hunt's family has since filed a wrongful murder suit against the city of Saratoga Springs, the SS Police Regime, and the two racist pigs who murdered Hunt.
The Reign (& Capture) of HERO Eric Frein
Even though it is very rare for police to be killed in the "line of duty" (as a matter of fact, 'garbage collector' is a more deadly occupation than being a wretched cop), 2014 has seen several cops being neutralized by heroic vigilantes. As was mentioned before, taking such extreme and desperate actions are usually suicide missions. But every once in a while, one truly gives these pigs a good run for their money.
On September 12th, Eric Matthew Frein was alleged to have ambushed two worthless shit cops in rural Pennsylvania. The alleged attack occurred during a shift change at a police barracks located in the Pocono Mountains, near the township of Blooming Grove. Corporal Bryon C. Dickson was neutralized in the ambush, trooper Alex Douglas was injured. Frein is military reinactor, survivalist, and expert marksman. After the attack, Frein fled into the surrounding area, which is heavily forested. Numerous authoritarian agencies scrambled to search for the patriot cop-killer. Putting his survivalist skills to good use, Frein certainly did not make it easy for these pigs. Immediately, the entire area would come to be occupied by hoards of militarized cops from several governmental agencies - local, state, and federal. During the panicked search for Frein, local residents would experience the full brunt of the police-state. In his previous writings, Frein had clearly stated that he attended no harm to innocent civilians. So, the residents of Blooming Grove had only the police to fear.
Sadly, Frein would eventually be captured on October 30th 2014. As a bit of a personal, petty, childish vendetta, Frein was restrained with the handcuffs said to have been carried by Dickson - the pig Frein allegedly neutralized. And despite the fact that Frein was apprehended without resist, and was not armed at the time, all photos shown of Frein post-arrest clearly depict him with abrasions and bruises to his face. Why, it's almost as if he were violently beaten up by vengeful cops. There are contradictory reports between PA state troopers and U.S. marshals as to how exactly suspect Frein received his facial injuries... even though he surrendered peacefully.
These bastard-ass cops may have "gotten their man" so to speak (all it took was the jack-booted siege of an entire township, the terrorizing of innocent civilians at gun-point, and the complete expulsion of civil rights as well as the Forth Amendment for close to two months). But as was the case with heroic martyr Christopher Dorner, their match was indeed met. These men managed to cause chinks in the Matrix and their honorable deeds will never be forgotten!
Mexican Cops Involved in Student Massacre
There are some acts of police barbarism that simply defy imagination. The best Horror writers in film and fiction could not concoct something like this. Indeed, this is one of those things that just can not be made up. A true life Horror became reality in Mexico back in September. And the nightmare continues to unfold, well into 2015.
On September 26th 2014, a group of cops and assorted gunmen had viciously attacked a caravan of school buses. The buses were carrying students (all male) from their college to the city of Iguala, located in the Mexican state of Guerrero. During the attack, six people were killed in a shootout. 43 youths were subsequently kidnapped. Human remains belonging to one of those students has since been recovered. The whereabouts (and fates) of the other 42 students remains unknown to this day - as well as an official motive. In the search for the missing teens, several mass graves were discovered. However, human remains retrieved from these graves later turned out to have belonged to other missing persons.
Mexican Horror Story: protesters march and carry photos of the kidnapped students, demanding justice and that the criminal police be held accountable.
No group has ever stepped up to claim responsibility for this act of terrorism. However, it has since been established that it was perpetrated by a vile, deadly nexus of drug gangs, members of the military, and cops. Various political officials have also been implicated. Federal police were the ones who pulled over the buses in the first place. After the shootout, the youths were taken by cops at gun-point, and presumably, handed over to drug gangs. At this point, it is largely accepted that these students have since been murdered, though their whereabouts remain unknown. The mayor of Iguala, José Luis Abarca Velázquez, and his wife María de los Ángeles Pineda Villa masterminded the crime. They fled Iguala right after the attacks, but were apprehended about a month later in Mexico City.
Former mayor of Iguala along with his wife seen here. They are accused of giving marching orders to the police to attack the students. To date, they, along with about another 80 individuals have been arrested in connection to the student ambush and mass kidnapping.
The ultimate fate of the kidnapped students remains unconfirmed. The mutilated corpse of one student has been found, however, the fate of the other 42 remains unknown, Conventional wisdom is that they have all been killed. frustrated with the government's ineptitude, many thousands of citizens from across Mexico have taken it upon themselves to search for the missing teens - dead or alive. Searches have turned up several mass graves, but so far, forensic evidence has shown human remains found in these graves to belong to other victims. Because efforts to find the students have proven so difficult, and because there is still so much mystery surrounding this case, it is widely believed that there is a conspiracy afoot. Many people - including families of the missing teens - openly claim that not just local, but federal police were involved. In fact, many dozens of cops have already been arrested in connection.
The Murder of Tamir Rice
Cops murdering Black and Brown children is nothing new. There have been several high-profiles cases just in recent years which exemplify this - that of Aiyana Stanley-Jones (age 7 at time of murder) and Andy Lopez (age 13 at time of murder) may come to mind. Eerily similar to that of Lopez, a little boy playing with a bb gun, another case happened in late November in which a psychotic, trigger-happy pig gunned down another little boy. For playing with a bb gun.
Officer/pig Timothy Loehmann, center, seen here with fellow peckerwood dipshit cops. Loehmann was declared UNFIT to be an officer in 2012. Yet, that did not stop him.
In the wake of national protests over the murders of Mike Brown and Eric Garner most prominently, but many others, Tamir Rice's case stands out. And as mentioned before, the police murder of Rice has drawn many comparisons to that of John Crawford - another young Black male in Ohio - gunned down by cops over a toy gun, within seconds. But this case gets even uglier. It has since come out that after shooting Rice, police thugs tackled and handcuffed his 14 year old sister, who reportedly witnessed her brother being shot. When the mother, Samaria Rice, arrives on the scene to find her son Tamir fatally wounded, and her daughter in the back of a patrol car cuffed, she too is threatened with arrest! Rice was denied medical care by cops after shooting him - a human rights violation. A racist 911 caller and responding cops both have initially described Rice as a "20-something yr. old male with a gun".
Rice was buried on December 3rd. in Cleveland. His family has filed a wrongful death suit against the Cleveland Police Gestapo (CPG), as well as the city of Cleveland, OH. Pig Loehmann and his partner, pig Frank Garmback, were both named in the suit as well. They have both been rewarded with paid vacation for their deeds. A grand jury has been assembled, their decision awaits, blah blah blah...
Revolutionary Neutralizes Two NYC Cops
In one of the last outstanding acts of the year, two NYC pigs receive their wings, courtesy of Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley. So, not all bad news for 2014.
On December 20th, two foul NYC cops were neutralized while sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn. The two dead cops were officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, both deceased. Their executioner, later identified as Brinsley, claimed revenge over the recent police murders of Staten Island resident Eric Garner and others, as prime motivation. He shot the two pigs in broad daylight, after which he fled to a near by subway station. Brinsley then made one last on-line communicae, before martyring himself in rest room.
The sheer indignation put out by media, as well as police reactionaries, was shift and severe. Immediately, the two dead cops were lionized and practically blessed with sainthood - postmortem. Brinsley was slandered a demon and monster, references to his humanity were completely non-existent except in alternative media outlets. What was even more disgusting (and dangerous), NYC union mafia boss Patrick Lynch went on a crazed, maniacal tirade, blaming those those who dared to protest against police terrorism. Claiming there was "blood on many hands", police union/mafia boss Lynch placed the deaths of officers Ramos and Liu squarely at the feet of the average citizen, as well as NYC mayor Bill DeBlasio. Even more outrageous, a mass email from police officials sent out to all cops basically declared the New York Police Gestapo (NYPG) a "wartime" police force, and that they would "act accordingly". If this is not the very definition of POLICE TERRORISM, what the Hell is???
Funerals for the two cops have since been held, with great deals of media saturation. Brother Brinsley's body has since been returned to his family... he is free now, so there is nothing more they can do to him. The city of New York and its inhabitants remain under an oppressive siege by the NYPG - a near 34,000 strong policing force, they are one of the largest criminal gangs in the world.
2014 has been an... illuminating year, to put it mildly. And with citizens continuing to take action in the streets, in town halls, and on social media, and terrorist police gangs continuing their impunity for unchecked abuse, 2015 looks like much of the same will go on. Let the reader be reminded that this last transmission of the year covers but a modest bit of what all has happened. Much more has happened that this blog has not been able to cover, not in the detail deserved. The NYC police terrorist regime has officially declared WAR upon all those who dare speak out and openly against police violence. And with the vast militarization of police regimes all over the country, it can rightfully be said that police in general have declared was on the general population.
Violence begets violence which, if the energy if properly channeled, becomes awareness and activism. So when police officials get on television and proclaim that citizens have "blood on their hands" for merely protesting - that shit helps people to WAKE UP. And when vile, skinhead cops get on TV, demanding that pro-athletes "apologize" fore merely drawing attention to the murders of innocent people - that helps people to WAKE UP! And when residents see their towns being overrun with militarized police terrorists and Martial law imposed at gun-point... all for the manhunt of a single suspect - that makes people WAKE UP! And when folks see that young White women and middle-aged White men are getting blown away by trigger-happy cops - that also makes people WAKE UP! However, let there be no doubt about it, police have always waged genocidal war against Blacks and people of color for decades! 14 teenagers have been murdered by cops in America since Michael Brown's death in August. Half of them were Black. Many committed no crimes at all... and hardly any of those cases has seen much, if any media attention. Let that sink in for just a moment.
