MSNBC HOST COMPARES ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION OPPONENTS TO RACE SEGREGATION ADVOCATES

Melissa Harris-Perry exemplifies network’s plummeting ratings

by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | JULY 28, 2014

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry exemplified why the network’s ratings continue to plunge when she compared opponents of illegal immigration to advocates of race segregation.

During a segment on her Saturday show, the host likened Texas Governor Rick Perry’s decision to send National Guard troops to the border to Arkansas Governor Orval Faubas’ move to use Guard troops to prevent black children from attending Little Rock Central High School, which was racially segregated, in 1957.

“Rick Perry was preceded in his call to send armed troops to confront children by Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus, and he, of course, called the National Guard to stop the Little Rock Nine from their first day of school at Central High,” said Perry.

“The presence of children on buses integrating Boston schools in 1974 didn’t stop white crowds from confronting them…

Los Angeles Times Suggests Illegal Immigrants Have Civil ‘Right’ to Work Permits

Originally posted on Whiskey Tango Foxtrot:

In a story about President Barack Obama’s potential executive actions, the Los Angeles Times suggested that illegal immigrants have a “right” to work permits even though that is not allowed under U.S. law.

The headline of the Los Angeles Times story about Obama potentially granting temporary amnesty and work permits to five million illegal immigrants blares, “White House pursuing plan to expand immigrant rights.”

Last week on the Senate floor, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) blasted the Obama administration for declaring amnesty “as a civil right.” Bewildered, Sessions, the former U.S. attorney, wondered how Attorney General Eric Holder could “assert that people have a Constitutional right to enter unlawfully and be given amnesty.”

“That’s an argument against the very idea of a nation state and the idea of a nation’s borders,” he continued. “Of course, there is and can be no civil right to enter a country unlawfully and then to…

Families Rally Against New York Teacher Tenure Laws

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Seven families from across New York state who want to end teacher tenure rallied at City Hall on Monday.

As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, the families are filing a lawsuit challenging teacher tenure, seniority and disciplinary rules. They say those protections are keeping ineffective teachers in the classroom.

Plaintiff Keoni Wright, of East New York, said his twin daughters have different teachers, and he sees the difference.

A 2012 study conducted by the Heritage Foundation found that workers who switched from private employment to teaching most often took an hourly pay increase, while most of those who left teaching for the private sector took pay decreases.

Drivers Get Screwed Over Constantly in America | VICE

In order to legally operate a motor vehicle on public roads in America today, citizens must abide an astonishing array of affronts to even the most basic concepts of civil liberty. Heavy-handed and infuriatingly arbitrary traffic patrols, mass collection of their locational data, grossly exorbitant fees and fines, statutorily unavoidable “checkpoints,” the ever-present threat of (age/gender/racial) profiling, relinquishment of due process rights—the list goes on, and on, and on. According to John Bowman of the National Motorists Association, one of the few organized efforts to lobby single-mindedly on behalf of preserving roadway liberties, conditions appear to be worsening at an accelerating pace. “Based on the reports we see here,” he told me, “and we do monitor this stuff pretty carefully, I would say the general erosion of motorists’ privacy rights has escalated over the past few years.”

California Highway Patrol Seizes Medical Records Of Woman An Officer Was Caught On Tape Beating | Techdirt

July 24, 2014 4 comments

rom the all-part-of-the-exoneration-process dept

Today’s demonstration of post-brutality scrambling is brought to you by the California Highway Patrol. First off, we’ll take a look at the “alleged” brutality, which looks incredibly similar to non-alleged brutality. (Apologies for the watermark the person who recorded the incident slapped all over the video.)


This head-punching (David Diaz, who recorded the incident, counts 15 punches in total) was performed as an act of civil service, according to the CHP.

Speaking to the television station ABC7, the California Highway Patrol said that the officer had ordered the woman to stop walking, out of fears for her safety.

She failed to follow this order, possibly due to mental illness. After the unnamed officer’s fists were finished ensuring her safety, the CHP sent the woman to a mental health facility and refused to allow her family to see her. The video surfaced shortly thereafter, forcing the CHP to make further statements about how “physically combative” the woman was, as well as expressing its utmost desire to find a way out of this to see justice done.

“We’re looking at every possibility, every fact, every circumstance that have contributed to this situation, and we’re going to try to come to a just conclusion,” Highway Patrol Assistant Chief Chris O’Quinn said at a news conference on Friday.

“Just,” in this context, seems to actually mean “exonerating.” The investigation continues, apparently, albeit in unexpected (and terrible) directions.

California Highway Patrol investigators have seized the medical records of a woman seen on video being repeatedly punched by one of its officers on the side of a Los Angeles freeway.

Chris Arevalo, executive administrator for psychiatric services at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, confirmed that the CHP served the search warrant Tuesday for Marlene Pinnock’s records.

Why the CHP would need to seize the records, rather than just view them, is completely inexplicable. The person served the warrant noted that it was issued to grab “property or things” as part of a felony investigation, which apparently included communications with her doctor about her well-being and “references to her attorney.”

I’m sure the ongoing investigation will clarify the CHP’s need to violate its victim’s privacy before this debacle is wrapped up. That’s how it works. But it looks like an uphill battle. The statement released by the CHP commissioner sounds like even he was caught off-guard by this bizarre, smells-like-a-cover-up records seizure.

“I think what they’re trying to do is, they don’t have a statement from her, and they’re trying to find that out,” Farrow said. “I don’t think the CHP is trying to put her on trial or make it an issue about her. What I’m looking at is entirely about the circumstances, we all saw what happened. Our job is to find out the why and the how.”

So, the CHP gets statements by hospitalizing someone and seizing their medical records. While these records may offer some insight as to why she didn’t immediately follow the officer’s instructions, they really don’t fill the “statement” void — unless the CHP is going to further violate her privacy by releasing a statement on its own behalf using information gleaned from the seized records. As it stands now, it looks exactly like the CHP is planning to “make it an issue about her.” If it isn’t, then perhaps it might quid pro quo with the release of the disciplinary records of involved officers.

Moving on from this larger wrongness, I’d like to take a little time to point to the complicity of the Associated Press in the low-level whitewashing of this latest development by using that famous law enforcement standby, the passive voice.

My first notification came to me via Officer.com, whose headline read:

CHP Seizes Medical Records of Woman Seen Punched

“Seen punched?” Punched by whom? By the CHP, of course, not that this headline indicates that. As far as this headline goes, it may have just been a random mugging. A more accurate headline would be “CHP Seizes Medical Records of Woman They Were Seen Punching.” Clumsy, but more honest. Considering this AP story was reposted by a police-centric site, the passive voice is completely expected. But it’s not just cop sites like Officer.com. It’s other places as well.

The AP buries the lede and other media sites run the feed without even altering it. Of course, Police One took the AP’s weak title and made it even worse.

CHP seizes medical records of woman in scuffle with cop

Not only does it side more with the CHP, but it also makes it appear as though the CHP seized her records during the “scuffle.”

We expect this use of the passive voice from police officers. The media doesn’t really need to assist law enforcement spokespeople in their blame-deflection efforts. When misconduct allegations arise, they’re always followed by details of “weapons discharging” and innocent bystanders “receiving gunshot wounds” and officers never striking anybody but always “responding” to actions, movements or words from some person whose personal safety was ensured by hospitalization.

Trooper accused of stealing from dying motorcyclist takes plea deal | The News Desk

BRIDGEPORT – A state trooper, caught on his own dashboard camera stealing a dying motorist’s cash and gold crucifix, is facing up to a year and a half in prison.

Aaron “AJ” Huntsman, a 19-year veteran of the state police, pleaded guilty Wednesday afternoon under the Alford Doctrine to third-degree larceny and tampering with evidence – both felonies.

Although Huntsman, 45, could have faced up to 10 years in prison on the two charges, Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin said he would impose a term in prison of 16 months, followed by five years of probation.

Huntsman’s lawyer, Ryan McGuigan, does have the right to argue for a lesser term when Huntsman is sentenced Oct. 3

Huntsman walked out of the courtroom with a big smile on his face following the hearing. He declined comment.

The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist

The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.

The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center, spells out the government’s secret rules for putting individuals on its main terrorist database, as well as the no fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings. The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place “entire categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly…

A business district in Kent, Wash. was evacuated Monday morning after a suspicious bag was discovered on a Metro bus.

Police, two SWAT teams and a bomb squad arrived on scene and immediately began removing passengers after receiving a call around 7 a.m.

75 Percent Of Newark New Jersey Police Stops Are Unconstitutional – Feds To “Monitor” Department – Mostly Targeting Black Community – Unreasonable Force Used In 20% Of Arrests Where Force Was Used

Originally posted on Experts At Work:

The Newark police department will be put under a monitor, the Justice Department announced Tuesday as it issued a report alleging that as many as 75 percent of police stops in New Jersey’s largest city over the last several years were not legally justified.

The investigation began in 2011 and the Justice Department reviewed thousands of police documents and interviewed officers and commanders as well as residents in drafting the report.

In addition to the unconstitutional stops, investigators found use of force by Newark police officers was unreasonable in about 20 percent of all arrests where force was used. Only one excessive force complaint has been filed against Newark officers in the last six years.

The report concluded that “the black community bears the brunt of NPD’s unconstitutional stop practices,” according to a copy obtained by NBC 4 New York.

Citing Maryland’s recently enacted firearm laws and the prospect of more restrictions, the U.S. arm of legendary Italian gunmaker Beretta announced Tuesday that it would move its manufacturing operations to Tennessee next year.

The move makes Beretta the latest maker of guns or ammunition to move all or part of its operations to another state because of tightened gun control laws.

General Manager Jeff Cooper said an early version of a statute passed last year by the Maryland state Senate would have prohibited the company from manufacturing or storing products in the state.

“While we were able in the Maryland House of Delegates to reverse some of those obstructive provisions, the possibility that such restrictions might be reinstated in the future leaves us very worried about the wisdom of maintaining a firearm manufacturing factory in the state,” Mr. Cooper said.

A number of states, especially those that are conservative and gun-friendly, approached the Italian company last year after…
