"There are more than 560 federally recognized Indian tribes in the country. But none of Virginia’s tribes, the ones that helped the settlers survive, have that crucial recognition that gives them, in essence, sovereign status and entitles them to nation-building assistance."

Pepper Spray Chronicles | Report of the Pepper Spray Committee of the New York Civilian Complaint Review Board

"Issued in 2000. The report discusses the NYPD’s current policy on pepper spray, reviews the scientific literature on the effectiveness and health hazards of this substance, analyzes CCRB complaints in which officers were alleged to have used pepper spray, and formulates recommendations to the NYPD regarding its current policy on the use of pepper spray.

 

Highlights:

*”The spray is designed for use as less-than-lethal force, adequate for incapacitating dangerous or violently resisting suspects.” (3-4)

 

*”Patrol Guide 212-95 lists five situations in which an officer may use pepper spray.
Pepper spray may be used when a police officer “reasonably believes” that it is necessary to: 1) protect himself, or another from unlawful use of force (e.g., assault); 2) effect an arrest, or establish physical control of a subject resisting arrest; 3) establish physical control of a subject attempting to flee from arrest or custody; 4) establish physical control of an emotionally disturbed person (EDP); and 5) control a dangerous animal by deterring an attack, to prevent injury to persons or animals present.” (4-5)

 

*”The Patrol Guide states that officers should aim and discharge pepper spray into a subject’s eyes, nose, and/or mouth in two short one-second bursts at a minimum of three feet for maximum effectiveness” (5)

 

*”The Patrol Guide prohibits the use of pepper spray against subjects who passively resist (e.g., going limp, offering no active physical resistance). It further cautions that if possible, pepper spray should not be used against persons who appear to be in frail health, young children, women believed to be pregnant, or persons with known respiratory conditions.’ (5)"

VIDEO | POLICE BRUTALITY AT WALMART IN BUCKEYE, ARIZONA

VIDEO | POLICE BRUTALITY AT WALMART IN BUCKEYE, ARIZONA | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"Police in Buckeye Arizona decided to take extreme action against an elderly man suspected of shoplifting this black friday, November 25th 2011. The man placed two video games he was carrying under his shirt to free his hands because his grandson had been knocked down by a mob of rushing customers. The man was then confronted by police and was cooperating when the arresting officer, a K-9 cop, tripped the man and sent him face first into the hard floor knocking the man unconscious and possibly breaking the mans nose. To top it off they continued to handcuff the elderly unconscious bleeding man. Then the man continues to suffer as the police do not know how to treat the man, it is a full minute before a customer steps forward to help the poor man. It is not clear what injuries the man sustained at this moment.
Legally you are not stealing anything until you have left the store with the questioned item(s). We as American citizens cannot allow things like this to happen. What has happened in America where elderly men are beaten down savagely by police officers and we pay them to do it, all the while, corporate criminal international bankers looting trillions, and bankrupting nations, go unpunished - 25 November 2011."

Denial, ignorance and racism are the lamentable side of the same coin

By Enrique Tessieri

Martin Luther King (1928-68), sheds some light to this question: “History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”
