In late May 2011, members of the American Youth Movement had a booth in Sims Public park at the invitation of Sean Kline, Center for Independence, who was sponsoring a benefit to aid the challenged and to assist a young Marine corporal who lost his legs in combat.
The kids' message is anti-corporate and anti-war, but they were polite, quiet and respectful. They videotaped Mr. Kline and three city policemen approaching, demanding they leave the park because of complaints from an older veteran and corporate sponsors of the event. (See the videotape on You Tube) When the kids respectfully argued that they did nothing to justify being thrown out of a public park, the police asked for the IDs, said they were just doing their job, and that they would "trespass" the kids if they didn't leave.
In response to a complaint, the police chief after consultation with the city attorney, exonerated the police saying the kids left voluntarily, though he found no evidence to show they were creating a disturbance that would require them to be thrown out. (See articles in the Pasco Times, and New Port Richey Patch on-line.) Any reasonable person would acknowledge that the constitutional right to peacefully assemble and to petition one's government were ignored by city officials, and that no person has the right to exclude others from a big public park even if one disagrees with their message.
Rex Bellotti Junior, at the age of 15, was the victim of a disgusting injustice, committed by Albany officers of the Western Australian Police. It is amazing that he survived being run over by a WA Police 4WD, although he is now crippled for life. Rex Jr. nearly bled to death at the scene, due to a severed femoral artery, tissue was visibly ripped from his leg, and during the thirteen hour trip to provide him with the life saving surgery he so desperately needed, he had to be resuscitated twelve times and he will probably lose his leg.
That in itself is horrific enough, but what makes the Bellotti case all the more alarming is that despite the fact that four WA Police vehicles were on the scene within 90 seconds and there were at least twenty people who witnessed the crash or saw the aftermath, not one witness was interviewed until over a month later (once the media became involved). Out of all those officers present, not one can say what direction they arrived from, there are contradictions between WAPOL records of what time the 'incident' occurred, Rex Jr's location on the road, and not one of those four 2009 model police vehicles were fitted with CCTV or GPS despite that being standard WAPOL issue. The full horrid complexities of this case are appalling.
There has never been a genuine investigation, no compensation has been awarded to Rex Jr., and no criminal charges have been brought against those WA police officers driving the vehicle which hit Rex Jr. or those who have lied in legally binding documents.
The Australian Federal Police have been involved in a number of high profile prosecutions that have led to the conviction and incarceration of a number of innocent victims, including Capt. Fred Martens, Miss Jill Courtney, Dr Muhamed Haneef and the questionable rendition to Australia of the former Attorney-General of the Solomon Islands, Mr. Julian Moti QC in circumstances that can only be described as politically motivated.
Further, the AFP have exhibited questionable conduct in their dealings with the Bali Nine and Ms. Schapelle Corby. The recent trial and conviction of former AFP officer Mr Mark Standen for conspiring to import into Australia $130,000,000 of the precursor for making ice (i.e. pseudoephedrine) raises concerns of entrenched corruption within the AFP.
The murder of Australian Mr Drew Grant at the Freeport Mine in West Papua and subsequent allegations of tampering with the evidence contained within the victim’s body while in the custody of Australian authorities again points to possible corruption within Australia’s international security services, including the AFP.
The ongoing human rights abuses in West Papua being carried out by Detachment 88, which is trained and funded by the AFP, highlights the need for greater accountability within the AFP in its dealings with police and foreign security services.
The large number of refugees who died in the sinking of the SEIV X and the SIEV 221 and ongoing allegations that the AFP, through its agents, may have been involved in criminal conduct resulting in the deaths of these refugees needs to be investigated at the highest level.
Compounding these sad events are allegations from Portugal that Australian military intelligence personnel were involved in fomenting unrest in Timor-Leste, in order to further Australia’s political and commercial interests in the region. This lends weight to a suggestion that the AFP has become politicised and is being used as an instrument of terror, to pervert the rule of law, in order to further Australia’s neo-colonial interests in the region.
A number of high profile Australian citizens have been charged in controversial circumstances under Australia’s sex tourism laws and have either had their convictions quashed on appeal or are awaiting the outcome of the appeal process. The question needs to be asked as to whether these charges were brought out of a legitimate belief that a crime had been committed, or whether the AFP were acting solely to further Australia’s political and/or commercial interests in the region.
The murder of Mr Colin Winchester and the death of Ms Audrey Fagan, both senior AFP officers attached to ACT Policing (a command of the AFP) at the time of their deaths, must raise questions about why the smallest policing command in Australia has witnessed the deaths of two of its most senior officers. It is interesting to note that prior to his murder, Mr Colin Winchester was involved in investigating drug importation as part of his role with the AFP.
It’s for these reasons that I believe that it is necessary to hold a Royal Commission into the AFP.
The Government are cutting back on police.
What does this mean? It means an increase in crime and violence and an unsafe society for us and our children to live in.
Action needs to be taken and the time is now.
The riots starting in London and across the UK are due to opportunistic criminals who are an embarrassment to our country. Innocent citizens are paying the price, homes are being burnt down and livelihoods lost. We have a history of criticising our own police who in turn are afraid to use the necessary force required in these critical situations.
The police are putting their lives at risk and are not receiving the recognition or support they deserve. The media are quick to publicise negative stories about the police but this is not what the majority of the population feel. Most of the public are supportive of the police and this is the opportunity to be heard.
This aim of this petition is to show the government and police that they have our FULL support to use whatever measures necessary to keep order in this country.
On 07/07/2011, York based student Francis Fernie was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.
Francis was involved in the anti-cuts protests that took place on March 26th in London.
When police attacked the crowd outside Fortnum and Mason, Francis was hit repeatedly (including over the head) by police batons.
In a moment of 'hot headedness', Francis threw two placard sticks towards a crowd of heavily armoured police officers.
It has not been proven that he hurt anybody.
Frank is a hard working student, with no previous offences, a solid background in voluntary and community work and to everyone that knows him, he is a brother.
Frank should not be in prison.
It is easy to see that Frank's sentence is disproportionate to the crimes that he has commited and his background is one of lifelong kindness.
The full story as reported by York's Press can be found on at the following link:
This past week I was stopped by an cop in the city of Va Beach. I was not speeding or committing any crime. In fact when he turned on his lights to pull me over I was at a stop light one block from my home. When I asked him why he was pulling me over he could not give me an answer. Then he returned to my car in which I had my 2 children with me and stated that my registration was not valid.
I explained to the officer that the car is registered in my fiance name. He told me I was still responsible. I feel as if this officer was harassing me because he had a traffic ticket quota to meet and also because he had nothing else to do. Why is it that some cops wait for crimes to be committed and others just go around looking for trouble to create. If you agree with me please sign my petition.
There should be a law against this type of behavior from law enforcement.....
The series finale of "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" will be airing Sunday, June 26, 2011. The ratings are gradually getting better. The return of Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe has returned "CI" to it's early glory days. We can't let the best "Law and Order" go away.
We are ever delving in to peoples personal lives, with data being stored in all kinds of physical and digital states; in an ever expanding list of places e.g. cyberspace, police, local authorities, banks, mobile phones.
But much of this stored data is an infringement of our right to a 'Private and Family Life' as indicated in the Human Rights Act.
Now as a parent I consider the 'Law' and the associated powers to be a stringent and essential part of our lives in dealing with crime and potential acts of crime. However a 'Police Caution' is not a 'Sentence' or 'Conviction' and thus should not be allowed to remain on Police records as it is not a 'Spent Crime'. But the retention of this 'Caution' can be pretty damning, similarly as points on our drivers licence has the same effect. But even those points are removed once the offence has been 'Spent'. So why is it then that the law permits a 'Caution' to remain for 99-100 years on police records?
A 'Police Caution' is just that - a 'Caution' and not a conviction, therefore it should not remain indefinitely but serve as a deterrent for a prescribed amount of time e.g. four years.
We are a small community in NSW but we have a very high crime rate.
Our police services are limited and are not available 24hours to respond to incidents. Often we must rely on backup from other towns.
Soldiers receive a good conduct and long service medal after 22 years of service, the police, fire service all have their equivalent, however what happens to someone who serves 22 years or more in a combination of these services ? They are awarded nothing.
Should there not be a combined service medal available to those that carry out their duties with a good record for 22 years are more ? I think they should be rewarded like all the others....
Extreme violence and secret genocide is being committed against the white minority of South Africa. Tens of thousands of whites have been murdered since 1994. Brutal torture and rape is common and not even the young or elderly are spared.
Quotes: "Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer" - Peter Mokaba (ANC). (The same Peter Mokaba who denied aids)
"When Mandela dies we will kill you whites like flies" - Mzukizi Gaba (ANC).
"We the members of MK have pledged ourselves to kill them, the whites" - Nelson Mandela.

In September 2009 'Law & Order: SVU' moved to Wednesdays 10/9c and often back an hour to 9/8c > the viewerships ranges from 7.1 - 9.1 million, whearas it used to range from 9.1 - 10/11 million. People can't catch SVU every Wendesday night.
In September 2010 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' started out at Wednesday 10/9c before the show got revamped in a good way and moved to NBC Monday nights at 10/9c - a night on NBC no one watches. > the viewership ranged from 7.1-9.0 million now it's down to 5/6 million.
But both shows are of good quality and highly praised by fans and critics.
- Room 14 - a Foundation for Change: video introductions in the House of Commons
- Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694 - as video introductions in a House of Lords meeting and as one-page summaries
- Victims Unite! - with Our Cases as Stories and our most recent House of Commons meetings.
Two outstanding stories have been turned into a book:
- Volume 1 of The Forensics of Legal Fraud covers the bankruptcy of Mr Ebert that was enforced without jurisdiction by falsifying documents. The book has been downloaded over 2,000 times and led to the creaion of Help for Litigants in Person .
- Volume 2 is another fraudulent bankruptcy, after the successful company of millionairess Paulette H Cooper was liquidated by white collar criminals who 'targeted' her with the aid of police, banks, courts, lawyers and Insolvency Practitioners.
Furthermore, thanks to our most popular petition to Free Norman Scarth, our online petitions have gathered nearly 6,000 signatures, next to 70,000 page views and remarkable comments illustrating the general dissatisfaction.
The global web movement AVAAZ demands "clean lists" (listas limpias) of politicians to be elected. We are appealing to the Justice and the Treasury Select Committees in the spirit of the Bank of England Act 1694. It was written with the intention NOT to oppress Their Majesties' subjects, but at the very latest, the financial "crisis" has made it apparent how dishonest money or the Money Scam create greed and corruption, most unfortunately also in "respectable" institutions and professions, resulting in exactly what was to be avoided: the serious oppression of Their Majesties' subjects.
When Council lawyers write their own "injunction orders", against "The Media & Others", with their own "terms of service", pretending they have had a hearing with an "independent" judge, they violate basic human and family rights and bloggers' Freedom of Expression and Information. The untold story of gagging orders, published by The Independent, reveals that 69 gags relate to celebrities and 264 to children and young adults.
When Law and Order have turned into Crime and Disorder, we need to appeal to the Lord Chancellor and the Business Minister who are very aware of our 'representative' cases.
When the Rule of Law has been replaced by the Rule of Money, our appeal has to go also to our elected politicians in the Justice and the Treasury Select Committee, to check on the unaccountable financial and legal industry aka HM Partnership, with a view to Financial Fairness for voters and taxpayers.
Victims do NOT have an effective remedy before national authorities nor do they have a chance for a fair trial. They are neither protected by this fundamental European Human Right nor by the Universal Declaration of the United Nations. Instead, they are fodder for the "mangle" of an adversarial system that milks the public purse.
The Secrecy of Family Courts should be lifted NOW!
Abolish the Ban on recording Court Proceedings
Stop the Oppression of the British People!
In general, particularly of the new generation, I have found that people litter for no apparent reason. It has become a British statement for many of the youth and shockingly, it is considered that littering is cool - To chuck plastic, paper ect. is cool... Yet, after many encounters with constant litterers, they are completely unaware of the damage it is causing to our environment.
I want to change this. I want to show people the damage it's causing and stop them in their tracks once and for all. Help me do that.
Support my petition.
The Uniform Crime Reporting (U.C.R.) program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation. In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics.
The United States law enforcement and judicial system have a long history of racial discrimination against minorities. In addition, the United States Law Enforcement and judicial system have a long history of discriminating against low income citizens in rural and urban areas.
We believe that a society functions best when all of its citizens feel safe, and secure. We believe this is best achieved in a truly democratic society with laws based on the Declaration of Human Rights and the Constitution of the United States of America is enforced. We believe that the public needs reliable information for better understanding.
To date, the FBI, CIA, Border Patrol, Sheriff, County, City and/or State Law Enforcement officers do not have to document if a citizen has died while in their custody nor do they have to document how many citizens have been killed at the hands of law enforcement.
On the 22nd of March 2011 the University of Glasgow tried to evict the students occupying the Hetherington Building.
This was met with considerable resistance by those within the building and a large police presence was required to keep things under control.
After this, protesters moved to the Senate Rooms to begin a new occupation. The protesters have called police actions 'heavy handed'.
The Lower Milford Township Supervisors cut funding for two police officers, leaving the township inadequately protected.
North Wales Police have to make savings in the region of £20m.
The people of Chirk and the area are concerned that North Wales Police ae looking to close Chirk Police station as part of their cost cutting excercise.
Why does it take so long to interview and investigate murder allegations? Anonymous calls are essential to police investigation, however evidence to either substantiate the claim or discredit this should be sought as soon as possible to relieve distress, save resources and time of innocent people.
In all countries that have child pornography laws there is a inhumanity that happens. While the child pornography laws were made to stop pedophiles from exposing little kids to other pedophiles & the world, lawmakers at the time never thought about what to do to minors caught sharing nude pictures of themselves so they just decided to put them in with the notorious child pornographers & molesters we fear today.
Whether you're a pedophile running a child porn industry or a horny teen sending your girlfriend / boyfriend a picture of your genitals both will be held to the same level & both will get labeled as child pornographers & sex offenders.
Sex offenders are the most hated type of people on Earth. Both the police arresting them & the prisoners despise of sex offenders & will mistreat them to the full extent.
So if a teen is arrested for picture sexting it is very likely the police officer arresting them will mistreat them to the full extent. If the prisoners that teen is staying with find out about their crime they most likely will get raped & beaten more than the average prisoner. Is this really what we want our children to go through? Do you really wanna see your child get locked behind bars just for a picture they sent of their body?
If you support my movement to legalize sexting & don't have much spare time then skip the next articles. If you support legalizing sexting & have time then read the below stuff to reinforce your views. If you support keeping it illegal then you really need to read the following stuff. Here are the arguments supporters of these laws use to defend these inhumanities with & why their arguments do not justify these inhumanities:
"It is to prevent them from losing their job in the future. If their boss sees those pictures do you think they're gonna approve of that?"
1st of all how is their boss gonna get a hold of a picture their employee privately sent when they were 16? If their boss would be willing to fire their hard working & loyal employee for pictures they took when they were kids then that boss doesn't deserve to have any employees or a business. If their boss does fire them for taking nude pictures of themselves when they were kids that should apply as a lawsuit. & last of all this is just another reason to get rid of these laws. Does putting kids in prison for many years & getting put on the sex offender registry help their chance of getting a job at all?
"Do you think sending nude pictures while you're underage is gonna help your chances of getting into college?"
Same stuff as above. What someone did privately in their personal time when they were kids should not affect whether someone gets into a college or not. Are you gonna reject a perfectly qualified 18 or 20 year old from going to your college just because they took a picture of their genitals when they were 14? Also the only way a boss or college person could get a hold of pictures like that is if they're spread on the internet. Well that's when it should be a crime, not when those pictures stay between the 2 partners.
"They should be mistreated, put in prison for years, & get labeled as a sex offender because they 'shouldn't' be doing that"
I could go on & on about what people 'shouldn't be doing. People 'shouldn't' smoke tobacco but does the government come in & arrest every adult who does? People 'shouldn't' get married to someone who's 10 years older than them but does the government come in on that? Good looking women 'shouldn't' be in a relationship with a fat ugly man but does the government come in there? So you think that kids shouldn't be picture sexting, you think that justifies putting them in prison for many years? If I didn't know better I'd say you're the same people saying kids shouldn't have sex till they're out of college & married. Well hate to be the bearer of bad news, your fantasy of having a anti-sexual society in which teens are completely abstinent isn't gonna ever happen, not unless we turn completely totalitarian & castrate all the guys & circumcise all the girls.
If you support these laws you might as well support female circumcision & male castration. I don't see why any supporters of these laws would be against it. Actually I think in some ways female circumcision & male castration might be more humane than getting the punishment for child porn, cause the pain of circumcision is temporarily even though there are permanent effects later, but at least they won't have the worst kind of label someone can have. So yes if you support these laws the way they are you might as well sign a petition to legalize female circumcision & male castration. Female circumcision & male castration would be a lot more effective against teen sexting & underage sex than these laws cause then the teens wouldn't ever get horny. As long as we teens have hormones we're gonna rebel.
Now on with the arguments.
"You know what the answer to this problem is? Just don't sext while you're underage & you won't get in all this trouble".
Well unfortunately that's not gonna happen. We teens have something called hormones, something that drives us to showing off our horny genitals. Maybe if we didn't have all these laws against public nudity or had more places that allowed nudity this wouldn't be as big of a problem. Or maybe if parents would allow kids to meet each other in person then kids wouldn't need to sext long distance. We are not gonna become completely abstinent just because you want us to. Unless you castrate & circumcise us that's not gonna happen.
Here is how the IDEAL child pornography laws are: To shorten this article I'll say that basically the only changes in the child pornography laws will be that if a minor & their sexting partner within 4 years of age are somehow caught with those pictures & they keep it between themselves it will be legal & if a minor posts nude pictures of themselves on the internet then that will be the responsibility of the site they posted them on, not the police.
There needs to be gray areas with child pornography, not have them completely black & white. We need to turn these blanket laws into net laws.
So if you have a heart please sign this petition & help put an end to these inhuman arrests. You can also help by debating with supporters of these laws about it & spreading awareness about it.
The City of Camden, New Jersey was once an integral part of this nations shipping and manufacturing industry. What was once a place full of production and progress has become the home of violence, drugs, criminals and a general sense of apathy.
Camden has been among the nation's most dangerous cities before recent days. Now, nearly half of our police force and a third of our firefighters are being laid off. How can anyone expect for us to survive an already impossibly dangerous environment with significantly fewer police officers? WE CAN'T!
RCMP and police officers in Canada who often misuse their granted powers tend to either not have any criminal charges laid, charges dropped, or the minimum possible charge (i.e. misconduct). Officers if charged also face little disciplinary action from the police.
This tends to occur from "self investigations" of the RCMP. If RCMP or police officers in Canada break the law (i.e. Assault, Murder, Manslaughter, DUI, etc.) they should be investigated by civilians and not other police forces, especially their own.
"Police Officers" have long had the benefit of retiring after 20 years of service in New York State and have automatically been placed in a 20 year retirement system. However, New York State Sheriff's Deputies are not automatically placed in a 20 year retirement system. Most Deputies have to work at least half a decade longer than their "Police Officer" counterparts.
A County can opt to buy into a 20 year option for their Deputies, but the cost is usually prohibitive. Deputies attend the same training academies as "Police Officers" and perform the same duties, along with additional tasks that "Police Officers" do not necessarily perform. Often, the civil service exams for the "Police Officer" and Deputy Sheriff job titles are one and the same.
Deputies and their families share the same stresses, sacrifices, and risks as their "Police Officer" brethren. It is only fair that they are afforded the same benefits.
The BC Government is in negotiations with the RCMP to renew their contract in 2012.
With all the problems with RCMP officers being charged with criminal offenses and being suspended with pay for years while it works it's way through the courts and then through internal RCMP discipline committees the BC Government and the people have no say in in the mandate of the RCMP only Ottawa has jurisdiction, it's time to replace them with a provincial and municipal force.
The BC Government is in negotiations with the RCMP to renew their contract for policing in 2012.
With past performance of RCMP officers being charged with criminal offenses and rising they are reassigned to desk duty or to sit at home with full pay until all court cases have been dealt with, most cases take years and if convicted they then go through a RCMP internal review (1 year at least)before discipline If any!
There is another petition to oust the RCMP altogether from BC,
On Wednesday, November 17, 2010, at approximately 5 p.m., officers were called to speak with UMSL student Brian Massey in the Millenium Student Center regarding a dispute with another student.
Shortly after arriving, two of the officers handcuffed Massey and proceeded to beat him with their fists and kick him along his body and head. A crows of 70-100 students and employees rushed to Massey's aid to get the officers to stop but they did not.
Massey spent several days in the hospital and was briefly removed from his campus apartment, yet as of December 3, 2010 the offending officers still have their jobs and are still walking through the UM-St. Louis campus.
Too often people are wrongfully accused of crimes they never committed. Some police officers charge people with crimes for the mere reason to make sure they are punished for something.
If police work were to become volunteer work, the police force would have less "crooked cops" and more police officers looking only to do the right thing, and less police racial profiling.
Each year, thousands of applicants apply for a position in law enforcement. To apply for these positions, applicants are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement to apply and then later when they are denied employment based on unknown circumstances, they are left wondering what happened. In most cases, the applicant knows why they were denied employment but there are quite a few cases where there is an informant who has made claims regarding the applicants abilities or past conduct preventing them employment in that field.
While the state courts have made the claim that disclosure of adverse information regarding an applicant could prevent informants from coming forward with pertinent information regarding the employee, it results in a biased background investigation and a denial of employment wherever the applicant goes based on each background done following the applicant.
These non-disclosure agreements are very harmful to people who are applying for these types of jobs in a very competitive job market and to deny someone the right to know why they are not being selected is just wrong. The federal government doesn't allow this practice in their employment process so neither should the states. It is time for there to be more openness in the hiring of police officer applicants.
FIRE Christopher Misiano and Blake Masters; HIRE Ed Zuckerman and Michael S. Chernuchin to "Law and Order: Los Angeles" as Executive Producers/Showrunners.
Recently Dick Wolf and NBC created a new drama, "Law & Order: Los Angeles" to keep the "Law & Order" fandom going on NBC due to the recent cancelation of the original "Law & Order" on NBC in May 2010 (after being on the air on NBC for 20 record-tying/breaking seasons).
The new LA "Law & Order" has really poor writing quality which is affecting the acting of the cast members on the ‘new’ series. And the show is being treated as a 'sunny beach Law & Order' and not a gritty crime/police/legal-drama as the original series was. Fans don't figuratively want sunshine - even if it is shining; they want gory crimes, grit, and courtroom drama! NOT “ripped from TMZ” celebrity scandals, surfers, and ice cream!
They want: “RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES” STRAIGHT UP MURDER, PERIOD-POINT-BLANK; NO SPECIAL STATUS!
The showrunners are: Rene Balcer, Peter Jankowski, Blake Masters, Christopher Misiano, and Dick Wolf. Jankowski and Balcer come from the original series along with the creator Wolf;
But who are Blake Masters and Christopher Misiano? - I can tell you what they are doing, making the 'new' Law & Order CRAPPY. They have these 'messed up' storylines that make no sense and are NOT what "Law & Order" is about - and the fans disagree with them.
The fans of "Law & Order" and "Law & Order: Los Angeles" want a change or they want OUT!
We want "Law & Order" in "Law & Order: Los Angeles" NOT 5% Law, 5% Order, 90% Los Angeles are everything in the media and on television about it.
We want "Law & Order: Los Angeles" to be what "Law & Order" is! Not these 'new L.A. stories'!
Bring the New York "Law & Order" workers to Los Angeles!
