Christopher Dorner & the LAPD: Who’s Fight is it?

Well, they apparently lost no time in locating Christopher Dorner and cleansing the whole cop vs. cop affair with fire (their preferred method). The LAPD can now return to “protecting and serving” LA, when they aren’t terrorizing it.Man Hunt On For Former LAPD Officer Suspected Of Shooting Police Officer

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) boasts that only 3% of its 220,000+ prisoners are violent, predatory criminals. The LAPD outstrips that percentage by far.

Even the FBI admits that upwards of 40% of the national police forces are guilty of family violence alone. Rarely does a day go by that some felonious atrocity by police isn’t broadcast…and that’s only the ones of which we learn. more…

Weed, Cops & Revolutions…

A few days ago, a comrade (I’ll call him “Delgado”) decided to leave his legal marijuana operation here in Michigan and visit Bolivia (medical marijuana is lawful in Michigan).Nature's Bounty-1

Given his years of journalism throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America, I expect to soon see his news and analyses appearing again in TheRagBlog.com, an international newsmagazine (and radio show) rooted in the 1960s. more…

Psychopaths: Inside & Outside the Law…

On Thursday Police Sergeant Drew Peterson (58) was convicted in the brutal murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.  Peterson joins a growing chorus of such psychopaths tolerated in the nation’s police departments.

If he harbored a psychopathic personality at a young age it was subordinated when he joined the U.S. Army after high school and became a military cop.

In 1977 he joined the Bolingbrook Police Department, Illinois, and was able to indulge his deranged appetites for another 30 years. He collects $6,067.71 a month in retirement pay from the public treasury. more…

Corps, Gov’t, Police & Provos…

When was the last time you heard of a terrorist conspiracy case that did not include a police agent or a paid “confidential informant” (CI), and wasn’t the result of a “sting operation”?

The latest such FBI-police op in the news is that of the so-called Cleveland Six (which also conveniently targets that city’s Occupy movement). No doubt their intent. more…

Jasmine Thar, Southern Justice…

Ahh, how do fundamentalist Christians, the Klan and its modern equivalent, the Tea-Party, yearn for the old days…

Jasmine Thar, 16...

Jasmine Thar and Trayvon Martin just don’t have that same punch as it used to be when the local newspaper would openly advertise a Sunday after-church barbeque and lynching. more…

Truth, Justice & the American Way…

Why should there be any sense of justice in a nation that fosters and promotes ethnic, sexist, and class murder? It’s as American as apple pie…

Trayvon Martin (17)…

While corporatist Republican bottom feeders race to the depths of the bigoted cesspool, honorary blue-dog Democrats, Obama and his attorney general, are busy promulgating security laws worthy of a police state. more…

The Prison Time Machine…

This week’s Online New Yorker magazine features excellent commentary on mass incarceration by Adam Gopnik, “The Caging of America.”

The author well captures the reality of American prisons as time machines and warehouses of “the lock and the clock.” He also offers several causative factors that resonate with my own conclusions.

When Reagan came to Washington in 1980 there were 220 souls imprisoned for every 100,000 people in the US. Today, that number is 743 and climbing. The US, while having only 5% of the world population, contains 25% of all prisoners on earth. more…

Good Kops vs. Bad Kops: The 1% Solution…

No one can say that I’ve not been blessed with a variety of acquaintances and circumstances throughout my life. Two of them are Michael and Robert Meeropol, the sons of Julius & Ethel Rosenberg, murdered by the state as Soviet spies in 1953.

Julius & Ethel Rosenberg

The release of hundreds of thousands of gov’t papers since, document that, indeed, they were both ardent members of the CPUSA (allies to the US during WW-II). Julius (37) was an electrical engineer and Ethel (Greenglass, 35) was a union organizer. They lived in NYC.

They were both scapegoats of the anti-communist hysteria whipped up by J. Edgar Hoover and Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI). Somebody had to be publicly burned at the stake for the Soviet’s developing their own atomic bomb (1949). more…

Social History: 99% & 1%…

“One class-conscious prisoner is worth 1,000 lawyers.”

Twenty-years in federal prison tends to give a person a certain je ne sais quoi into crime, law, and state control. Since extended tribal families were formed some 10,000+Y.A., associations of humans have come to general agreement that certain common laws are needed.

Initially, I surmise that these social agreements tended to centralize around common issues of physical predation. Family-society came to generally view murder, assault and theft as such universal crimes. more…

Occupy Valley Forge…

Once again, due to health issues (sciatica and degenerative arthritis of the lower back and left leg)), I have to apologize for failing to post my regular articles on this site for the past month. Fortunately, I have VA/Medicare coverage and hope to be up and running normally soon. Meanwhile, I’ll do my best to address certain commentary on topical events that I find informative and of potential interest to y’all…

Coming projections...

I’m sure most everyone is following the news related to the awakening of popular protests across the nation, indeed, around the world in the form of numerous “occupations.” In the US, that process started in NYC (Wall Street), September 17th. more…
