Man hospitalized after throwing own intestines at police | The Raw Story

Man hospitalized after throwing own intestines at police | The Raw Story | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

A New Jersey man who repeatedly stabbed himself and threw pieces of his flesh and intestines at law enforcement officials remains hospitalized in critical condition on Tuesday, according to theAssociated Press.

 

Police on Sunday responded to call from someone saying 43-year-old Wayne Carter was threatening to hurt himself with a 12-inch knife.

 

When police arrived at the residence, the man yelled at the officers and stabbed himself. As police entered, he threw pieces of his own body at them and threatened them with his knife.  

 

When pepper-spray had no effect on Carter, police retreated and called the SWAT team, who subdued him with beanbag projectiles.

US Army - Internment and Resettlement Operations #NDAA

Preface
Field manual (FM) 3-39.40 is aligned with FM 3-39, the military police keystone FM. FM 3-39.40 provides
guidance for commanders and staffs on internment and resettlement (I/R) operations. This manual addresses I/R
operations across the spectrum of conflict, specifically the doctrinal paradigm shift from traditional enemy
prisoner of war (EPW) operations to the broader and more inclusive requirements of detainee operations.
Additionally, FM 3-39.40 discusses the critical issue of detainee rehabilitation. It describes the doctrinal
foundation, principles, and processes that military police and other elements will employ when dealing with I/R
populations. As part of internment, these populations include U.S. military prisoners, and multiple categories of
detainees (civilian internees [CIs], retained personnel [RP], and enemy combatants), while resettlement
operations are focused on multiple categories of dislocated civilians (DCs).
Military police conduct I/R operations during offensive, defensive, stability, or civil support operations. I/R
operations include military police support to U.S. military prisoner and detainee operations within operational
environments (OEs), ranging from major combat operations to humanitarian-assistance missions in support of a
host nation (HN) or civil agency. I/R operations are a major subordinate Army tactical task under the
sustainment warfighting function. (See FM 7-15.) Placement under the sustainment warfighting function does
not mean that I/R operations do not have relevance in the other warfighting functions. While I/R is listed under
the sustainment warfighting function, it should be noted this is not a specified or implied mission of all
sustainment units or commands. Most sustainment units provide logistics, personnel services, and health service
support to I/R operations.
Military police are uniquely qualified to perform the full range of I/R operations. They have the requisite skill
sets provided through specific training and operational experience. The skills necessary for performing
confinement operations for U.S. military prisoners in permanent facilities are directly transferable and adaptable
for tactical confinement of U.S. military prisoners and detention of detainees. All military police units are
specifically manned, equipped, and trained to perform I/R operations across the spectrum and those identified as
I/R units are the specialists within the Army for this role.
FM 3-39.40 depicts the changes in terminology from the focus on the contiguous battlefield to reflect the types
of operations being conducted in today’s OEs. These changes address the modifications made to previous EPW
processing operations. The terms division forward, central collection point, and corps holding area no longer
apply. They have been replaced with the terms detainee collection point (DCP) (brigade level), detainee
holding area (DHA) (division level), theater internment facility (TIF), and strategic internment facility
(SIF).This manual recognizes the role of police intelligence operations in I/R operations and enhances the
critical importance of military police and military intelligence interaction at all echelons. It further highlights
the long-standing requirement to treat all individuals humanely according to applicable U.S. laws and
regulations, international laws, execution orders, fragmentary orders (FRAGOs), and other operationally
specific guidelines such as Department of Defense (DOD) policies. Moreover, it stipulates that ill treatment of
U.S. military prisoners, detainees (EPWs, CIs, and RP), and DCs is strictly prohibited, regardless of any
circumstances or the chaos of major operations.
FM 3-39.40 aligns with FM 3-0, FM 3-39, FM

HOUSTON—A judge threw a 17-year-old 11th grade honor student from Willis High School in jail after she missed school again. 

Judge Lanny Moriarty said last month Diane Tran was in his Justice of the Peace court for truancy and he warned her then to stop missing school.  But she recently missed classes again so Wednesday he issued a summons and had her arrested in open court when she appeared.

Tran said she works a full-time job, a part-time job and takes advanced placement and dual credit college level courses.  She said she is often too exhausted to wake up in time for school.  Sometimes she misses the entire day, she said.  Sometimes she arrives after attendance has been taken.

The judge ordered Tran to spend 24 hours in jail and pay a $100 fine.  Judge Moriarty admitted that he wants to make an example of Tran.

PRESS RELEASE
Chicago Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild
For Immediate Release: May 25, 2012

National Lawyers Guild Provides Wrap-up of Police Actions During Week-long NATO Demonstrations
Police violence, serious injuries, high-level charges & exceptionally high bonds symbolize city’s reaction to protests

Chicago, IL — The Chicago chapter of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) has made an initial assessment of police actions on the streets during the week of NATO demonstrations, which was dominated by police harassment and violence, serious injuries, high-level charges, and exceptionally high bonds. At this time, the NLG estimates that 117 people were arrested, but fewer than 100 were ultimately charged. Of those charged, the vast majority were ordinance violations and misdemeanors, including disorderly conduct, failure to disperse, trespassing, and resisting arrest. Sixteen people were charged with felonies, including 5 protesters accused of terrorism-related crimes.

How do you overturn fundamental American rights without forcing people into the streets with protest signs, or even rifles? By doing it slowly... slowly... Bill Looks at how the Affordable Care Act and the National Defense Authorization Act threaten our First and Fifth Amendment rights and how both parties are slowly taking away the protections that guard us from the Ring of Power.

Terrorist Plots, Helped Along by the F.B.I.

Terrorist Plots, Helped Along by the F.B.I. | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.

But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.
