    Default Reporter Abby Martin Illegally Detained At The DNC

    By Abby Martin

    Reporter and activist Abby Martin was aggressively detained yesterday while covering the Democratic National Convention. She talks about how she was never technically arrested but processed at an elementary school with a bunch of other civil disobedience activists.



    Like Gramps use to say back in the nineties: "My country is going to hell son"

    RIP

    Jailer Chokes Inmate To Death On Video But Still Hasn’t Been Charged

    By David on 28 July 2016 GMT The Police State




    ‘Video obtained by The Daily Beast shows a corrections officer strangling an
    inmate to death for more than a minute inside an Oklahoma jail.

    A state medical examiner ruled that Darius Robinson was killed by “manual
    compression of the neck” and ruled his death inside the Caddo County jail to
    be a homicide. The county’s district attorney, Jason Hicks, has yet to bring
    charges against officer Michael Allen Smith for the April 4 incident, according
    to attorney Spencer Bryan, who represents Robinson’s family.

    Hicks has refused to answer any questions about the case since The Daily
    Beast first reported on Robinson’s death last month. The DA’s office said
    Monday it would not discuss grand jury deliberations.’

    Over 55,000 Americans injured and killed by US police in just one year – study

    By David on 28 July 2016 GMT The Police State



    ‘More than 55,000 Americans were either killed or injured by US police in
    just one year, a new study has revealed. Most of the deaths were from
    fatal firearm wounds or excessive use of taser devices.

    The study, titled ‘Perils of police action: a cautionary tale from US data sets,’
    covers the year 2012 and offers greater context to the issue of police brutality,
    which has only grown bigger in the four years since the research.

    Published in the peer-reviewed British medical journal Injury Prevention, the
    study found that a total of 55,400 people were victims of police officers’
    “abuse of power” or “loss of control out of anger or fear” in 2012.’

    This Video of Anti-Hillary Protestors in a 'Free Speech Cage at the DNC is a
    Truly pathetic Image of Modern American 'Freedom'

    By David on 29 July 2016 GMT





    ‘Congress shall make no law… but they shall erect a “free speech cage”.

    Yeah, this really looks like freedom. Look at these people. Is this a zoo, you might ask?
    No. It’s protesters exercising their First Amendment rights to shout “Hell no, DNC! We
    won’t vote for Hillary!” over and over outside the corrupt dog and pony show that is
    the Democratic National Convention — in a rusty metal cage that looks like something
    out of the horror film Silent Hill.

    What a sad, pathetic testament to modern American “freedom” this is.’

    A political party is an organization. Churches, labor unions and Girl Scouts are other examples of organizations.

    Disrupting the legal proceedings of an organization are not freedom of speech rights.

    When protesters rent a meeting place and conduct a protest at that place, then they have freedon of speech righs.

    Having freedon of speech doesn't give anyone the right to disrupt lawfull meetings of others.

    And where does it say that Abby was disrupting anything, she had the permission and credentials to be there as a reporter.

    Did you even watch the video?
