    In the movie "The Matrix," swallowing a red pill reveals the truth, while downing a blue pill leaves you trapped in illusion. Today, in the parlance of some political activists, "taking the red pill" means seeing the lies of mainstream media -- and learning the truth. "People don't care to watch CNN anymore: People pay attention to YouTubers," says Candace Owens. Owens is a young black woman who created a YouTube site she calls Red Pill Black. "My second video went trending worldwide with 80 million views." My new internet videos sometimes reach 10 million people; I consider that a...

[snip] She flails at one officer and misses, then slaps him in the face. He hits her in the head with his right fist, causing her to crumble in the officers’ arms as she is carried out of camera range.

  • Hypocrisy as left Excuses muslim cop for killing Australian woman

    Guess what everyone! It turns out that not all acts of police brutality and misconduct are equal. To be sure, some are more equal than others. This as we have seen about a week after A Muslim police officers shot and killed an unarmed defenseless white woman. Her crime: Calling 911 twice and slapping the back of the patrol cruiser. While there have been protests and outcries thankfully, the overwhelming majority of the leftists have now begum to adopt the mentality of cop worshiping goons like the ones who murdered Kelly Thomas, an unarmed 150 lb white man with schizophrenia...

    One of the largest police force's in the UK is considering letting Muslim officers wear burkas in an attempt to boost diversity. West Midlands Police has said it will discuss letting the traditional Islamic dress - which covers the entirety of a woman's face and body - to become part of Muslim female officers' uniform. At a recent meeting, Chief Constable David Thompson, said he would consider employing staff who wear a burka as he looks to increase black and minority ethnic (BME) officers in the region to 30 per cent.

    Police officers fear being prosecuted for performing their duties Sheriff David Clarke explained saying, "…they're not afraid to do their job, but they're afraid of … the United States Department of Justice and their jack-booted goon lawyers at the civil rights division who have the American police officer in their crosshairs." While the Black Lives Matter movement advances a "police brutality" narrative, Sheriff Clarke states that " … the US DOJ civil rights division sees the American police officer as the enemy and they just see the criminals as victims." Officers now risk their reputation, livelihood, and liberty for doing...

    On the second day of her dream vacation on exclusive Bald Head Island, Julie Mall went with her family to the beach to catch the sunset. Her 11-year-old son asked to drive the golf cart back to their $1,000-a-day rented cottage. It was dusk, no traffic on the path and his father would sit next to him. A two-block, 30-second ride. She said sure. What could go wrong? In the next four hours, Mall says she was pinned to the ground by police, repeatedly accused of being drunk, frogmarched barefoot aboard a ferry in handcuffs, jailed in leg irons and...

    With all the frantic activity going on this week I didn’t get the opportunity to revisit the long running saga of the Freddie Gray trials, currently unfolding in the burned out remains of Charm City. As we previously discussed, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby made the decision to not only move forward quickly with charges against six officers involved in Gray’s arrest, but got the trials started in almost breathtakingly short order. This week, the first trial against Officer William Porter (who faced some of the lightest charges) ended in a mistrial. The jury had come back to the judge...

    One of the biggest changes to come out DC Entertainment's big comics revamp this summer turned Superman's world upside-down: Lois Lane revealed his identity to the world, and then he lost almost all of his powers ... Now that he's been outed, Superman's relationship with everyone around him has completely changed. Some are supportive, and grateful, surprised to learn that he's been living among them all along. Others, however, have a chip on their shoulder, resenting all the supervillains that he has attracted. Unfortunately for him, most of the angriest folks are cops. This quickly escalates into open conflict by...

    One month ago yesterday, on the early afternoon of May 17, in and outside the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas, a bevy of marauding motorcycle gangs who had gathered to create some sort of criminal trouble (the cops had already warned the restaurant to not let them meet there) began a wild melee of shooting at each other and at police. Nine people would eventually lose their lives, and 18 others were wounded. Waco police (including a SWAT team) and officers from the state Department of Public Safety–who were all already on the scene, aware of the potential for...

    MCLENNAN COUNTY - Law enforcement officials from across the country met at McLennan Community College for four days for a private conference about policing the growth of motorcycle gangs. The conference, put on by the Midwest Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Investigators Association out of St. Louis, MO, was scheduled before the Twin Peaks shooting May 17 after investigators saw rising tensions between motorcycle gangs on the rise in Central Texas. "We do a considerable amount of talking about these confederations and coalitions... and try to make them understand a little bit the motives behind these is other than what they advertise,"...

    Waco Tribune ^ | June 20, 2015 | TOMMY WITHERSPOON
    One month after the deadly May 17 shootout at Twin Peaks prompted the unprecedented mass arrests of 177 bikers, officials are releasing limited information and say disclosure of certain evidence, including videos of the incident, would compromise their investigation. The incident was of such a rare scale and variety that McLennan County officials had never experienced anything like it. Their response after the shooting stopped has been criticized from some corners and spawned at least one federal civil rights lawsuit and a judicial complaint. Now, as the media, bikers and their relatives push for answers, many questions remain unanswered because...

    WACO - On a recent Sunday, a Cossacks Motorcycle Club officer nicknamed Diesel sipped a Diet Dr Pepper on the patio of Twin Peaks and broke the news to his son, who was also a member. The 63 Cossacks and their supporters at the restaurant were not just waiting to have lunch with fellow bikers from around Central Texas. They had come for a special sit down with the Bandidos, to hash out an ongoing dispute. Before their meal arrived, Diesel was shot, execution-style, with two bullets to the back of his head. Cody Ledbetter, 26, survived the May 17...

    Monday, MSNBC cut into an already-in-progress press conference about the Texas police officer who has been suspended after video of him roughly taking down a teenage girl in a bikini at a pool party emerged and Rev. Ronald Wright, executive director of Justice Seekers Texas, warned of ISIS-style terror attacks in America from “us” because of “unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.” Rev. Wright said, “This simply could have been handled different by this officer asking them to get off of their property or they will give them a citation. But...

    Dashcam video released Thursday shows a black suspect being kicked in the face by a white Delaware police who was charged last week with assault. The video, recorded August 2013, was released by Dover police after a federal judge ruled last week that it was no longer considered confidential. The ruling came in a lawsuit filed on behalf of the suspect by the American Civil Liberties Union.

    The use of police force — against minorities and whites alike — is so poorly monitored that there is no precise accounting of how many citizens are killed by officers, much less their ethnicity or other crucial details. What official data exists suggests that the number of killings by police officers has crept upward only slowly, if at all, in recent years. Since 2009, one regular if incomplete measure, the F.B.I.’s account of justifiable homicides by police officers, ranged between 397 and 426 deaths annually before jumping to 461 in 2013, the latest reporting year. Federal experts have long acknowledged...
  • U.S. Marshals in South Gate Attack Cop Watcher Destroys her cellphone (NSFW Video)

    Here’s a video that’s causing an uproar among those who care about photographers’ rights. It’s a 53-second clip recorded on on April 19th that shows an encounter one woman had with police officers on a residential sidewalk in South Gate, California. While shooting photos or footage of the assault rifle-equipped officers with her smartphone, one of the men charges her, snatches the camera from her hands, smashes it on the ground, kicks it back at her, and then walks away. Details are sparse at the moment, and we’ll update you when more info on this emerges.

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is calling for an investigation into the arrest of a college student with Chicago ties who was shown in a photo with a bloody face as he was held down by an officer. Charlottesville General District Court records show that Martese Johnson is charged on two counts: obstruction of justice without force, and public swearing or intoxication. The Alcoholic Beverage Control agent who made the arrest Wednesday morning, listed in court records as J. Miller, said in the arrest report that Johnson "was very agitated and belligerent." A statement from a group calling itself "Concerned Black...
