Cops Have Killed Every 8 Hours in 2015, Sending At Least Three People to Early Graves Per Day 1202 Total

These are the facts in 2015 on how many people are killed by police in several countries to compared to U.S. figures.

 

  • Police have killed 1202 RECORDED killings in 2015. 1202  In 2014 1104 2 year total 3306 people killed by the police in the last 2 years bears repeating 3306 FREAKING PEOPLE killed the past 2 years at the hands of the police
  • Here are some more disturbing facts on how bad police brutality has become in the U.S.
  • China which has 4.5 times MORE people and is a communist country police killed ONLY 12 KILLED
  • England who historically never even carry a gun (real men) England in 2015 only had 1 killing and 2014 ZERO
  • From 2010 through 2014, there were four fatal police shootings in England, which has a population of about 52 million. By contrast, Albuquerque, N.M., with a population 1 percent the size of England’s, had 26 fatal police shootings in that same time period.
  • From 2013-2014, German police killed absolutely no one.
  • American police kill more than all of the first world nations’ police departments combined!
  • “Police and sheriff’s patrol deputies” ranked as the 41st most dangerous occupation.”
  • Americans are less violent than ever; its the police who have been increasingly violent.

Officers who cannot bring 17-year-old girls or 87-year-old men into custody safely have absolutely no business “protecting and serving” anyone.  A person who cannot control a situation with a 90 pound high school girl or an elderly gentleman, and “fear for their life” so severely that they need to pull a trigger, is not a hero, they’re a coward.

It is time for the United States to get over its love affair with idolizing the badge.

Cop Serving Eviction Notice Kills 12-Year-Old Pennsylvania Girl by Mistake

Cop Accidentally Shoots 12-Year-Old Pennsylvania Girl1:06

Police shot and killed a 12-year-old Pennsylvania girl by mistake when a cop’s bullet passed through her father’s arm and struck her, too, authorities confirmed Tuesday.

The girl, identified by relatives as Ciara Meyer, was standing behind her father in the doorway of their home Monday morning in Penn Township when a uniformed state police constable showed up to serve an eviction notice, state police said Tuesday.

Police said the girl’s father, Donald Bartho Meyer Jr., 57, pointed a .223 caliber rifle at Constable Clarke Steele, who fired a single round from his .40 caliber service weapon. The bullet passed through Meyer and struck Ciara, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meyer was treated at Hershey Medical Center. He was being held without bond pending a preliminary hearing Friday on state charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, making terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person, according to court records.

Court records show that Meyer owed $1,780.85 in a landlord-tenant dispute.

State Police Trooper Robert T. Hicks told NBC station WGAL of Lancaster that Meyer knew the eviction notice was coming Monday, “so it was no surprise.”

“Unfortunately, the constable was put into a situation where he had to defend himself,” Hicks said. “Unfortunately, that little girl just happened to be behind her father at the time.”

A relative who wouldn’t be identified by name told WGAL on Tuesday that the incident could have been prevented.

“He [the father] was definitely wrong, and it could have been prevented,” WGAL quoted the relative as saying. “We as a family completely blame Don for this.”

A GoFundMe page to raise money for Ciara’s mother and to fund anti-domestic violence programs at the local school district described the little girl “a loving vibrant 12 year old who’s life was cut short far too early.”

“This was a terrible ending to a horrific series of events that could have been prevented,” it said. “Her family and friends will miss her.”

The girl attended classes in the Susquenita School District, Superintendent Kent Smith said Tuesday. He said psychologists and guidance counselors from the school district and from Holy Spirit Hospital in nearby Camp Springs were being made available to help pupils and staff

Shocking Video Shows Cop Execute US Combat Vet and Former POW, for Twirling an Ink Pen.

San Diego, CA — A judge ordered the release on Tuesday of surveillance videos that captured San Diego Police Officer Neal Browder shooting a mentally ill homeless veteran to death. The unarmed man had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and PTSD after serving in the Afghan army and being held captive for two months by a Mujahideen group.

On April 30, Officer Browder responded to a call concerning a homeless man harassing people in a parking lot. Newly released surveillance videos show Browder pull up in his cruiser to confront 42-year-old Fridoon Rawshan Nehad. After failing to turn on his body camera before arriving, Browder can be seen exiting his vehicle before immediately firing at Nehad.

Instead of brandishing a weapon, Nehad had been twirling a pen in his hand when the officer suddenly shot him. After watching the surveillance video roughly two dozen times, nearby KECO employee Wesley Doyle stepped forward declaring Browder did not bother to use his Taser or give Nehad any physical warning that he was about to shoot him.

“He did not even get into a shooting stance,” Doyle wrote in his declaration. “The shooting appeared to be unprovoked; Officer Browder appeared to shoot Fridoon hastily.”

After Doyle stepped forward, Nehad’s family filed a complaint accusing Browder of depriving Nehad’s civil rights, assault and battery, negligence, and wrongful death. According to the complaint, Nehad had been serving in the Afghan army when a Mujahideen group captured him and tortured him for two months. In the years following his release, Nehad was diagnosed with numerous mental illnesses as a result of his captivity.

“Fridoon battled against his illnesses for years. He was intelligent, learning new languages (German and French) and taking classes on computer programming, linguistics and literature,” the complaint read. “Fridoon was loved. His family spent years and countless hours helping him cope with his PTSD and mental illness.”

Although the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice have launched an investigation into the fatal police shooting, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis announced that her office has decided not to file criminal charges against Browder. Even though District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, SDPD Chief Shelley Zimmerman, and an attorney for Browder fought to keep the videos suppressed, U.S. District Court Judge William Hayes ruled last week that the officials had no right to keep the videos hidden from the public and Nehad’s family.

Due to the fact that Nehad did not raise the pen in an aggressive manner nor lunge at the officer raises the question why Browder felt the need to kill him less than three seconds after exiting his patrol car. Instead of providing help to an ally, we as a society have once again turned a blind eye to those suffering with mental illnesses and have allowed another life to be sacrificed to the state.

After surviving two months in an enemy torture camp, this veteran came home only to be executed by an American cop.

Police in the US Kill Citizens at Over 70 Times the Rate of Other First-World Nations

In case you’ve been under a rock lately, it is becoming quite clear that police in the US can and will kill people, even unarmed people, even on video, and do so with impunity.

The tallying methods, or rather lack thereof, used by both the FBI and individual police departments to count the amount of people killed by police, have been shown to be staggeringly inaccurate.

However, this inability of the government to count the number of people it kills, has been met with multiple alternative means of calculating just how deadly the state actually is.

One of these citizen run databases, is the website www.killedbypolice.com. The site is basically a spreadsheet that lists every person killed by cops in the years 2013 and 2014. In addition to naming those killed, it also provides a link to media reports for each of the killings, age, sex and race if available.
The tally for 2014? 1,100 people killed by those sworn to protect. That is an average of three people a day.

Do not mistake this as saying that those who were killed were innocent. However, when we look at violent crime in this country, we can see that it is at an all time low.

While violence among citizens has dropped, violence against citizens carried out by police has been rising sharply.

When we look at citizens killed by police over the last two years, deaths have increased 44 percent in this short time; 763 people were killing by police in 2013.

As a comparison, the total number of US troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, in 2014 was 58.

Fewer soldiers were killed in war than citizens back home in “the land of the free” in 2014, by a large margin.
So why is that?

Is this some natural tendency of police in “free societies” to kill their citizens more, in an effort to maintain this freedom? Hardly, and hardly is the US a free country.

According to the 2014 Legatum Prosperity Index released in November, in the measure of personal freedom, the United States has fallen from 9th place in 2010 to 21st worldwide—behind such countries as Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Uruguay and Costa Rica.

Other such rankings systems show the US as low as 46.

Let’s look at our immediate neighbors to the north, Canada. The total number of citizens killed by law enforcement officers in the year 2014, was 14; that is 78 times less people than the US.

If we look at the United Kingdom, 1 person was killed by police in 2014 and 0 in 2013. English police reportedly fired guns a total of three times in all of 2013, with zero reported fatalities.

From 2010 through 2014, there were four fatal police shootings in England, which has a population of about 52 million. By contrast, Albuquerque, N.M., with a population 1 percent the size of England’s, had 26 fatal police shootings in that same time period.

China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.
Let that sink in. Law enforcement in the US killed 92 times more people than a country with nearly 1.4 billion people.

It doesn’t stop there.

From 2013-2014, German police killed absolutely no one.

In the entire history of Iceland police, they have only killed 1 person ever. After exhausting all non-lethal methods to detain an armed man barricaded in his house who actually shot 2 police officers, police were forced to take the 59-year-old man’s life. The country of Iceland grieved for weeks after having to resort to violence.
So why are police in the US so much more likely to kill than all of these other first world countries?

To better understand the multi-dimensional answer to that question, we can start by looking at the prison population of the US.

America imprisons almost twenty five percent of all people imprisoned in the world, although containing only about 5% of the worlds population, an extremely disproportionate share of people imprisoned globally.

The U.S. houses 2.3 million inmates, while China, a country with four times the population of the U.S., is a distant second with 1.6 million prisoners.

The war on drugs coupled with the military industrial state created by the US playing police of the world, has created a deadly combination.

A constant pursuit of new weaponry by the military has paved the way for the hand-me-down cycle of military gear to police departments.

The idea was that if the U.S. wanted its police to act like drug warriors, it should equip them like warriors, which it has—to the tune of around $4.3 billion in equipment, according to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union.
What we are calling the militarization of police has already taken place, on a large scale. We are now seeing a domestic military, pretending to be a police force.

The time for peaceful resistance is now and more and more people are beginning to understand this.

Even retired police chiefs of large cities are watching from the sidelines with anxiety as they see their once, only slightly corrupt cities, turn into occupied militarized zones, ready to pounce on the first instance of civil opposition.

The most recent of former police chiefs coming to terms with the horrid consequences of their actions is Norm Stamper, former chief of the Seattle Police. Stamper was recently on the Colbert Report and Stephen Colbert asked him what happened during the infamous Seattle WTO protests in 1999 under his leadership. “Well we gassed non-threatening, non-violent protesters,” replied the former Chief of police for Seattle Washington.

Of course while Norm Stamper was a cop, he didn’t realize that his actions, no matter how “justified” by the state, would be contributing to a hellish future police state. Stamper, like myself a 4 year veteran of the USMC, and most of those who serve, or have served the state in some way, are unable to think outside of the paradigm while simultaneously supporting it.

“Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service.” -Two time medal of honor recipient General Smedley Butler, USMC

Because Stamper is out of the paradigm, he can see clearer now. According to his website, he wants to:
End the Drug War… Drive Bigotry and Brutality Out of the Criminal Justice System… Honor the Constitution… Build Respect for Cops…

So far, Stamper has been quite outspoken against the police state of which he was once complicit in creating. In order to affect change more people like Stamper need to come out. If half of the officers that contacted the Free Thought Project spoke publicly about their concerns, we’d be in a much better place

Unfortunately when officers do speak out against their own department they are met with horrid backlash from their peers.

The Free Thought Project is contacted regularly by police officers who know the system they uphold is completely corrupt, but they find it nearly impossible to call out the corruption.

Most recently an officer in Texas contacted us, who wanted to help prevent brutality and corruption. When we told him that speaking out and refusing to enforce immoral laws is how to change things, he replied by stating that he does refuse to arrest people for marijuana possession, but that he “fear(s) the repercussions by speaking out, simply because I do need a paycheck.”

When police fear the police, it is high time for change.

The overwhelming majority of police brutality cases stem from the war on drugs. When so many people are tasked with finding and prosecuting those in possession of a substance deemed illegal, the interactions become more frequent and less cordial. If we end that, we get the state out of the private lives of most individuals. This will only serve to lessen the scope of police harassment, in turn lessening the instance of brutality and killings.

The Free Thought Project is currently planning a world wide day of peaceful resistance to #End the Drug War.

We are also starting a Go Fund Me campaign to help support whistleblower police officers. With enough ‘good cops’ coming out against corruption in their departments, this would help to speed up the awakening process for Americans who still support the police state.

We’ve seen the change that one or two good cops can effect, imagine 100.

The time for peaceful action is now.
