Police State: cops keep killing

Stay on the sidewalk, mofo! - I am on the sidewalk, sir! - And don't talk back, n-word, or I'll blow your motherf'n head off like your boi Charlie Brown! - His name is Michael, sir. - Arrest this mofo, kill him if he "resists"! Fergistan, MO (Josh P/pactenboy/twitter).

NORTH AUGUSTA, South Carolina - Ernest Satterwhite was a laid-back former mechanic with a habit of ignoring police officers who tried to pull him over -- an act of [indifference] that ultimately got him [murdered by police who will not stand for being disrespected, certainly not by blacks].

[What is the name of the shooter, the killer who committed murder under color of law.] The 68-year-old black great-grandfather was shot to death after a slow-speed chase as he parked in his own driveway, by a 25-year-old white police officer who repeatedly fired through the driver's side door.

Investigators determined that North Augusta Public Safety Officer Justin Craven broke the law. A prosecutor, in a rare action against a police officer, sought to charge him with voluntary manslaughter, punishable by up to 30 years in prison. But the [hand selected] grand jury [of prominent, mostly white conservative citizens] disagreed, indicting him on a misdemeanor.
The debate over how police use force against unarmed people has become a national issue since an unarmed 18-year-old black [teen named Michael Brown] was shot to death in August by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, where unrest still lingers.

Let's keep paramilitary busy abroad killing noncitizens by remote control?

But most police shootings make only local headlines, and just for a day or two. The refusal of authorities to release public information about these on-duty actions by taxpayer-paid officials is a big reason why. As with many such killings, Satterwhite's death in February remains shrouded in mystery.

Video can make a difference [in prosecuting citizens and exonerating officials who viciously beat Rodney King on video yet were nevertheless went unconvicted]: South Carolina gained the national spotlight last week after a dashboard camera showed how in just a few seconds Trooper Sean Groubert went from asking motorist Levar Jones for his license for a supposed seat belt violation, to shooting at him repeatedly without provocation, even as Jones put his hands in the air. Jones was hit once and is recovering.

State Public Safety Director Leroy Smith called that shooting "disturbing," and Groubert was promptly fired and charged with felony assault. More

Police State?

World leaders and activists from around the world once gathered for the G20 Summit in a police state. With over 19,000 police and security personnel on hand, the results lead to over 1,100 arrests, martial law in downtown Toronto, and the largest violation of civil liberties in Canadian history.
