Vermont Inmates Hide Image Of Pig On Police Decals

It took Vermont officials four years to notice a little creative editing by one or more inmates. Look at this police decal:

The state seal is seen on the side of a Vermont State Police cruiser. Some Vermont inmates have gotten the best of the state police by adding a pig to the state decal on their cruisers.

The state seal is seen on the side of a Vermont State Police cruiser. Some Vermont inmates have gotten the best of the state police by adding a pig to the state decal on their cruisers.

Look at the cow underneath the tree. Embedded within the cow's spots is an image of a pig, which as the Burlington Free Press reminds us is the '60s-era epithet used by protesters to refer to police.

Reuters reports that it was likely put there by inmates. The state, Reuters adds, "contracts with correctional facilities employing prisoners to make some print products, including the cruiser decals." One or more inmates somehow accessed the computer program holding the image and rejiggered it. The quality assurance department failed to notice it and as far as the state police know, the modified decal was used on as many as 30 Vermont State Police cruisers.

Some weren't laughing.

"It dishonors the memory of those past and present members, especially for those who have lost their lives in the line of duty," state police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro told Reuters.

But the Free Press reports that others took it in stride:

"'This is not as offensive as it would have been years ago. We can see the humor,' said Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn, a former state trooper and state prosecutor who was named commissioner a year ago. 'If the person had used some of that creativeness, he or she would not have ended up inside.'"

It'll cost police $780 to correct the decals. The money will come from the small profits made by the prison division that makes things like license plates and stationery for state offices.

Movers And Sheriff's Deputies Refuse Bank's Order To Evict 103-Year-Old Atlanta Woman

by Zaid Jilani
Think Progress
November 30, 2011

Yesterday, a Deutsche Bank branch in Atlanta had requested the eviction of Vita Lee, a 103-year-old Atlanta woman, and her 83-year-old daughter. Both were terrified of being removed from their home of 53 years and had no idea where they'd go next.

But when the movers hired by the bank and police were dispatched to evict the two women, they had a change of heart. In a huge victory for the 99 Percent, the movers "took one look at" Lee and decided not to go through with it.

Retired Philadelphia Police Captain Ray Lewis Arrested at OWS, Calls NYPD Rationale ‘a Farce'

by Kevin Pinner
November 17, 2011


Among those arrested was retired Philadelphia Police Captain Ray Lewis, who said, "All the cops are just workers for the one percent, and they don't even realize they're being exploited."

Ray Lewis, who retired in 2004, has a lot of interesting things to say, and I want you to hear as much of it as possible.

"They complained about the park being dirty," he said over the OWS Livefeed last night. "Here they are worrying about dirty parks when people are starving to death, where people are freezing, where people are sleeping in subways and they're concerned about a dirty park. That's obnoxious, it's arrogant, it's ignorant, it's disgusting."

What does that say about NYPD's credibility? This guy did not run the police department of Anytown, USA — he ran the police department in Philadelphia, a city that can only be compared to a few other American cities in terms of size and scope, namely New York...

In another excerpt from a late night (circa 2 a.m.) interview done over OWS Livestream, Ray Lewis said the following about police tactics:

"You should, by law, only use force to protect someone's life or to protect them from being bodily injured. If you're not protecting somebody's life or protecting them from bodily injury, there's no need to use force. And the number one thing that they always have in their favor that they seldom use is negotiation-continue to talk, and talk and talk to people. You have nothing to lose by that. This bullrush-what happened last night is totally uncalled for when they did not use negotiation long enough."

UC cops' use of batons on Occupy camp questioned

University police say the students, who chanted "You're beating students" during the incident, were not innocent bystanders, and that the human fence they tried to build around seven tents amounted to a violent stance against police.

UC cops' use of batons on Occupy camp questioned
by Will Kane and Demian Bulwa
San Francisco Chronicle
11-11-11



A debate over the use of police force has reignited at the UC Berkeley campus after videos surfaced showing officers repeatedly shoving and jabbing screaming students who tried to keep officers from dismantling a nascent Occupy encampment.

The videos taken by protesters, journalists and casual observers show UC Berkeley police and Alameda County sheriff's deputies in riot gear ordering students with linked arms to leave a grassy area outside the campus administration building Wednesday. When the students didn't move, police lowered their face shields and began hitting the protesters with batons.

University police say the students, who chanted "You're beating students" during the incident, were not innocent bystanders, and that the human fence they tried to build around seven tents amounted to a violent stance against police.

But many law enforcement experts said Thursday that the officers' tactics appeared to be a severe overreaction.

Both the ACLU and the National Lawyers Guild said they had "grave concerns about the conduct" of campus police...

You know, I have heard parents kidding around saying stuff like that to their kids and never gave it much thought. Just chalked it up to innocuous joking, but I see your point. Children get enough of being drummed in their head that any dealings with police are bad and should be avoided at all cost through their peers they don't need it further perpetuated by their parents. Now granted, philosophically I preach that the less you are in the company of police and lawyers, the better you are probably living your life, but that is a different subject.
 
Our granddaughter's step-dad is a moronic asshat who can't seem to respect others on the road (and those in his car whom he claims to love) by driving reasonably close to the speed limit. Further, he can't seem to man up and take responsibility for his stupid, selfish, poor decisions. Instead, he whines like some p_$$_ to the rest of his family about how the evil cops are just out to get him. He has our granddaughter believing that the cops are the bad guys! At best, we get one day a week to counter the indoctrination by telling her how the police are there to help her and should be the 1st people she seeks out if she is ever feeling seriously threatened. Needless to say, it's hard countering that douchebag. Worse yet, you all gotta know he's not the only one who's spouting this nonsense to children, thereby yielding a whole sub-class of society who will view law enforcement as someone you flee from, lie to, and hinder. FSM help us.

And, yes, I know that all of them are not good, but the majority really are. You just have to take off the s#!t-stained glasses before you look at them.

The right of citizens to videotape police

by Jonathan Turley
Los Angeles Times
November 8, 2011
Actions against citizen videographers go against not just the Constitution but good public policy. Without a videotape, Rodney King would have been just another guy with a prior record claiming abuse.
