No surprize here.

How many riots in how many cities it will touch off is the next question.

ZH did a really good job compiling this.

Not sure it qualifies as "collapse," so much as inevitable reaction to fascist overreach. But am quite sure the terminology doesn't matter.
Will be interesting to watch the reaction of the jackbooted "authorities."

It is a manifestation of collapse, in that the people being hit first and hardest are the ones at the very bottom of the economic system.

It's just the same as what happened to the Fruit Vendor in Tunisia, Mohammed Bouazzizi, just slightly different circumstances and instead of self-immolation it's what is known as "Suicide by Cop", where a very frustrated person takes out their anger on cops and the cops then Kill that person, which essentially is what the person expects and is after.

The population of similarly frustrated people take this as a Symbol, and if the frustration is great enough inside the total population, the Mass Actions begin in its wake.

This was entirely predictable, and in fact I predicted it when this whole biz took off to begin with.

What is not predictable is exactly how TPTB will handle it, because it is much larger in scale now than JUST Ferguson.  Also not predictable is precisely what the "staying power" of the people protesting have here.

What is further predictable is that this is just the beginning.

Killed by Cops Stats
« Reply #33 on: November 30, 2014, 01:09:31 AM »
The latest stat collections are starting to paint a better picture of how many people get Cop Killed each year.  Looks like it's somewhere around 1000 according to the independent stat collectors, around 500 according to the FBI.

The "Justifiable" label is quite questionable, and the more interesting stat of how many are actually charged with any crime much less convicted of one remains a mystery.

In other newz, Darren Wilson resigned as a Cop in Ferguson, which makes sense since he has a Target painted on his back in that neighborhood.  One wonders if he will be relocated and handed a New Identity by the FBI?

RE

Killed by Police in “Justifiable Homicides”: The FBI’s “Police Homicide” Count Is Biased

 87
 
 8  0
 
 115
 
fbi-agent

According to the FBI’s newest Uniform Crime Report (UCR), released this week, 461 people were killed by police in “justifiable homicides” in 2013. This number has gotten some media attention, both because it’s considered by some to be the “best authoritative data available” and because it represents an 8 percent jump in these homicides from 2012.

This increase sounds notable, but the underlying data continues to be nearly useless. As we outlined in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in August, the FBI’s UCR program undercounts what it classifies as justifiable police homicides (while skirting the issue of non-justifiable homicides), and should not be considered a useful estimate. Any year-to-year increases in FBI counts could represent actual bumps in homicide rates, or better reporting of homicides, or both, or neither.

While independent counts of police killings — such as those at Fatal Encounters, the Gun Violence Archive and Deadspin — develop, the most reliable database continues to be the Killed By Police Facebook page. Using media reports, the page has counted 1,709 police killings since May 1, 2013, and more than 950 so far in 2014. We audited the page in August and confirmed that the links represented legitimate stories, although the count did include a small number of incidents where officers were acting outside the line of duty (for example, an off-duty officer killing his friend during a fight). These incidents represented less than 10 percent of the Killed By Police total.

Nevertheless, there’s plenty of good news to be found in the more general (and more reliable) crime statistics produced by the FBI’s report. The agency recorded 1.16 million violent crimes in the U.S. in 2013, a 4.4 percent decline from 2012 and 37.4 percent decline from 1994. These figures look even better adjusted for population; per capita violent crime was down 5.1 percent from 2012 and 48.4 percent from 1994.

A Modern Day Frank Serpico: Captain Ray Lewis Stands Tall!

RE

Corporate-Fascist America: Former Philadelphia Police Captain Says Cops Are Mercenaries for Corporations

 
bank-police

A retired Philadelphia police captain, Ray Lewis, has told the truth about the role of law enforcement in America.

“It’s an oppressive organization now controlled by the one percent of corporate America. Corporate America is using police forces as their mercenaries,” Lewis said during a recent interview.

“In such divisive times it’s important for people to realize this isn’t a black vs. white issue, but a blue vs. everyone issue,” writes investigative journalist Jay Syrmopoulos. “When a former cop is willing to cross the ‘thin blue line’ in an attempt to help wake people up to the reality of the American police state, the least we can do is help him spread this important message by sharing his words of wisdom in hopes of awakening others.”

Mr. Lewis underscores the fact police have never served the public and are acting at the behest of fascist corporations and banks, the very institutions that have controlled the nation and ruled over its political system for decades.

“The American legal system is rooted in English common law, and the modern American policeman harkens back to English sheriffs, who were paid by and accountable to the government, not to the community,” writes Wendy McElroy. “The main purpose of the sheriff was to enforce what were called ‘government decisions.’ Maintaining public order was also a concern, but ‘order’ was defined by the government.”

Government decisions are now made by transnational corporations and banks. This was admitted in 2009 by an exasperated Dick Durbin, the Senior Democrat senator from Illinois, when he said banks “frankly own the place” and are “the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill.”

Banks used mercenary cops to wipe out a misguided and muddled Occupy movement when it went after Wall Street. Homeland Security, supposedly designed to combat an illusive terrorist threat, coordinated the government response that ultimately destroyed the movement. JP Morgan Chase, one of the largest bankster operations in the world, showed its gratitude when it donated $4.6 million to the New York police.

Ferguson Playing Into the Hands of the State

If the Ferguson movement sincerely wished to end mercenary cop violence and brutality it would expose this connection between the corporate state and the police.

As McElroy notes, the concept of an organized and tax payer funded police force was first introduced by the British in 1786 in Dublin for the explicit purpose of quashing what the state considered disorder. “In this as in other social measures, Ireland acted as a testing ground for what would later become policy in England,” McElroy writes.

“The modern policeman is, in fact, the antithesis of Marshal Dillon and an expression of the stereotypical British sheriff — a civil servant responsible only to government and governmental policy,” she adds.

The United States Constitution initially prevented the federal government from controlling state and local law enforcement, but this has changed over the last few decades as a centralized federal government has incrementally exercised its monetary influence over police, especially after 9/11.

Unwittingly or not, the activists and protesters in Ferguson are creating a situation that will ultimately result in a strengthening of mercenary police control over the citizenry. By engaging in criminal activity – much of it, such as looting, praised by white intellectuals – and promoting discord and violence along racial lines, the activists are forcing average Americans (who are denigrated as racists) into a position where they will ultimately demand police protection, although, as McElroy and others have noted, that protection is at best illusory.

Short of comprehending the true nature and role of mercenary cops – the protection of a corporate-fascist state and, most importantly, as a weapon against organized opposition – the Ferguson activists and their followers are playing right into the hands of the state.

CHICAGO COPS USE STINGRAY TO INTERCEPT PROTESTER’S CONVERSATIONS, LEAKED AUDIO REVEALS


Published: December 6, 2014
Share | Print This

SOURCE: MIKAEL THALEN

An audio recording leaked by the hacktivist group Anonymous appears to prove that Chicago police used an IMSI catcher, commonly referred to as a Stingray, to intercept phone calls during an Eric Garner protest Thursday evening.

IMSI catchers, small devices that mimic cell phone towers, give police and government agencies the ability to capture people’s cellular data in real-time. The audio, posted to the official Anonymous Twitter account Friday, reveals a conversation between the CPIC, Chicago’s Homeland Security-run Fusion Center, and a police officer spying on an alleged protest leader.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/xpdpjX8Vsfw" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/xpdpjX8Vsfw</a>
Chicago police and CPIC discuss cell phone surveillance at 01:05

“Yeah, just uhh, the one of the girls is kind of an organizer here, um, she’s been on her phone a lot,” an unknown government employee told CPIC. “Are you guys picking up any, uh, any, uh, information, uh, where they’re going, possibly?”

“Yea, we’re keeping an eye on it.” a CPIC employee answers. “We’ll let you know if we hear anything.”

The leaked audio comes only one day after protesters began tweeting out pictures of a mysterious government vehicle equipped with an unknown device on its hood.

If confirmed, the revelation once again shatters claims by police departments that Stingrays are only used to stop the most heinous of crimes.

Just last August, documents acquired through a public records request revealed that a Washington state police department used a Stingray to hunt down a missing city laptop, not to investigate a homicide, rape or kidnapping as the department previously claimed.

Speaking with Infowars last month, Kirk Wiebe, a highly decorated 36 year NSA veteran turned whistleblower, condemned the domestic use of Stingrays by police and federal agents.

“These devices feed the mentality of the Police State, not unlike that experienced under the Nazis (Germany) and Stasi (East Germany),” Wiebe said. “Law enforcement is using this information to investigate and prosecute people without warrants – that is unconstitutional. At the national level, the same thing is happening.”

Given the fact that federal agencies have been caught teaching law enforcement groups to deceive judges in order to spy on Americans illegally, the act is likely going on much more often than the average citizen realizes.

With leaked Department of Defense documents labeling First Amendment-protected protest as “low-level terrorism” in 2009, it is hardly a surprise that the government would deploy technology originally developed for use overseas against innocent American at home.
