la-xingada:

The LAPD beat a Omar Abrego for 10 minute, he dies 12 hours later of his injuries.

but don’t forget that the cops were also “injured”:

"One police suffers of a knee injury while the other has a fractured hand" that he used to punch Abrego.

This has got to stop.

Studs Terkel Recalls Lucy Parsons

Prize-winning author Studs Terkel heard the aged Lucy Parsons speak during the 1930s. Parsons, widow of Haymarket martyr Albert Parsons, was herself a lifelong political radical who participated in the founding of the Socialist Party and the Industrial Workers of the World. Terkel heard Parsons at Bughouse Square, as Washington Square Park (opposite the Newberry Library on the city’s North Side) was called. As Terkel explains, by that time Bughouse Square was a well-established site of free and often colorful speech in Chicago. Terkel was interviewed on July 19, 1999.

The Day Ferguson Cops Were Caught in a Bloody Lie
The officers got the wrong man, but charged him anyway—with getting his blood on their uniforms. How the Ferguson PD ran the town where Michael Brown was gunned down.
Police in Ferguson, Missouri, once charged a man with destruction of property for bleeding on their uniforms while four of them allegedly beat him.
“On and/or about the 20th day of Sept. 20, 2009 at or near 222 S. Florissant within the corporate limits of Ferguson, Missouri, the above named defendant did then and there unlawfully commit the offense of ‘property damage’ to wit did transfer blood to the uniform,” reads the charge sheet.

Statement by the family of #MichaelBrown on the spurious attempts by the #Ferguson police today to assassinate the character of their son following his physical assassination by said police a mere days ago.

(as released to the press by the attorneys of the Brown family)

Michael Brown’s family is beyond outraged at the devious way the police chief has chosen to disseminate piecemeal information in a manner intended to assassinate the character of their son, following such a brutal assassination of his person in broad daylight.

There is nothing based on the facts that have been placed before us that can justify the execution style murder of their child by this police officer as he held his hands up, which is the universal sign of surrender.

The prolonged release of the officer’s name and then the subsequent alleged information regarding a robbery is the reason why the family and the local community have such distrust for the local law enforcement agencies.

It is no way transparent to release the still photographs alleged to be Michael Brown and refuse to release the photographs of the officer that executed him.

The police strategy of attempting to blame the victim will not divert our attention, form being focused on the autopsy, ballistics report and the trajectory of the bullets that caused Michael’s death and will demonstrate to the world this brutal execution of an unarmed teenager.

The #Ferguson Chief of Police told reporters that they released the footage from the convenience store allegedly depicting #MikeBrown — even though the Chief also admitted that the footage had nothing to with the actual police murder of Brown later that day — because “the media asked for it”! That’s right, because if the Ferguson police have proven anything these past few days, it is that they are willing to bend over backwards to make sure the media have complete and total access to all the facts on the ground.

"Not all police are bad," they say.

"Not all police are bad," they say. Until these so-called "good" police start publicly coming out and speaking out and forcefully condemning the epidemic of terrorism that their cohorts are inflicting on this nation’s oppressed communities, nobody can be faulted for stating that all police are brutish thugs. "If you see something, say something," the police tell us. I say, why don’t you fuckers practice what you preach and stop covering up each others’ crimes?

self-and-criticism replied to your link “BREAKING: Ferguson Police Chief Admits Mike Brown Shooting Not Related To Robbery”

It’s not murky at all. They got nothing and are trying to cover their asses is all

see, i thought what the article was saying that was “murky” is the fact that first the police release this video allegedly of Mike Brown robbing the convenience store … AND THEN turn around and admit that the officer who shot Mike Brown did not shoot him because of the convenience store, but rather because he was “walking in the middle of the road and blocking traffic.”
