The push for police body cameras is a distraction - they can't change the fact that the policing institution is coercive. A better solution is for you to film the police, and to withdrawal any legitimacy you grant to it.

+Cop Block While I agree that the general problem will not go away, it's still helpful even if it's just for that one innocent person that gets wrongfully convicted and the evidence to prove his innocence is on the police officer's own body camera. Body cameras matter for every person whose rights are being violated and it has proven to drastically decrease incidents of violence or injustice against citizens.


Again, if you can film the police, then do so. However, if you're being arrested for a crime, they will take away your video camera as soon as they put you in handcuffs. Many times you may not even be aware that a cop is about to violate your rights, so you might not even take your camera out.

The push for police body cameras is just the latest attempt to salvage public opinion and perceived legitimacy. Such an investment just convolutes the underlying issue - the fact that police, and the entire injustice system, are based on coercion. Such a paradoxical system can never deliver its promise of justice.

The concept of the “peace officer” is a myth. Those so-called "peace officers" were, like today’s police, enforcing arbitrary legislation, operating based on the claimed legal right to do things wrong for you or me, and subsisting on stolen money.

Protect yourself during police encounters. Know and exercise your rights. Maximize transparency and accountability. Five must-do's for every police encounter: Record, Get Names & Badge Numbers, ask “Am I Being Detained?”, Decline Questions and Refuse Searches.

Forty-minutes after learning that a family friend was hospitalized, a Whittier, California couple found their apartment surrounded by men with guns who ordered the couple to obey their commands. This incident showcases the inherently coercive "service" of police institutions, and the value in developing robust, decentralized networks.

Jeffrey Weinhaus sought to inform others about governmental agent abuses. After posting a video in which he demanded that those in the “justice” system shape-up or step-down, his computers were stolen by Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) employees. Weeks later, at an arranged meeting where Weinhaus was told he was to receive back his property, Weinhaus was shot four times. Weinhaus recovered and is now caged. Weinhaus is a political prisoner who was targeted because he spoke out against those who claim the right to control others. He didn’t harm another person or property. This situation can be described as a classic case of police employees protecting their own.

ABOUT COP BLOCK

Cop Block is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goal of police accountability. We highlight the double standard that some grant to those with badges by pointing to and supporting those harmed. By documenting police actions whether they are illegal, immoral or just a waste of time and resources then putting direct pressure on the individuals responsible (ideally while recording and then later sharing), we can work together to bring about transparency and have a real impact.

Those of us who write for and are responsible for CopBlock.org affirm that violence is not condoned except in the defense of self or others. We do not “hate cops.” We believe that no one – not even those with badges – has extra rights. The failure to realize and act on that is to our detriment. By focusing the disinfecting light of transparency on public officials we safeguard not just our rights but those of future generations.

In New York a police officer assaulted a judge on the street and the judge while trying to file a complaint against the officer for doing such found out what it was like to be a common citizen. I can't wait to hear of the day a police officer shoots and kills a judge for sport like they do us lowly citizens. It'll make me crack a smile when the predators ball of the justice system starts eating itself.

No matter how outspoken, how much impartiality is claimed, or how much authority is said to exist, police oversight boards can never stop police brutality as their very existence gives credence to, rather than undermines, a system founded on coercion.

+Cop Block  I filled a complaint once in city of st. louis, and they sent a regular cop to my house. Come to find out I asked my attorney and he said thats not how its supposed to work. Then I had to go down there actually and put another one in because the first mysteriously disappeared. Oh the cop got a vacation out of it "suspended with pay"

Are you a police employee? Now is the time to step back and take an inventory of your own actions. How has your time as a police employee changed you? Are you more loving? Or have you become more jaded? Are you still driven by the same motivation now as you were when you started out policing? There is a way out. Quit. It’s never too late to reclaim your integrity.

To eliminate the rights violations by police employees, live your life as though badges don’t grant extra rights. This is the lynchpin that will set you free.

Predators wearing badges - road pirates - prowl our streets. We’ve been conditioned to defer to strangers who violate our rights so long as they don a certain costume. But if the same act demanding your wealth for an action that had caused no victim - was done by someone wearing different attire, you would recognize it for what it is - theft. If you are targeted for a victimless act, know that badges don't grant extra rights. Consider not automatically forking over your hard-earned cash. One mind at a time, we’ll effect real change.

Puppycide is rampant because police lack the proper incentives. Police departments, sheriff’s offices, and federal agencies are built on double standards. They claim “legal” rights to do things considered wrong for you or me.

VIDEO NARRATION

About half of households in the USSA have a dog. For many of us, our four-legged friends are part of the family. When they pass, it can be a tough adjustment. That is especially true when their lives are cut short through acts of violence.

The killing of other peoples’ dogs by police employees happens so regularly that a word - puppycide - has been coined to describe it.

Maps, databases, Facebook pages, and media content provide a voice for those wronged and give us some idea of the scale.

A duo of documentarians focusing on this issue has raised tens of thousands via their Kickstarter campaign. They state that every 98 minutes a dog is shot by a police employee, which equates to over 5,000 dogs annually.

Almost without exception, police employees who shoot unarmed people claim “I felt threatened” - that same mantra is put-forth by those who shoot dogs under dubious circumstances.

In the injustice system, the phrase “I felt threatened” acts as a get out of jail free card for police. They must get home safely, after all.

Yet if its believed that police take a paycheck to protect others, wouldn’t they put their own safety second to those they serve? And never shoot a person or a dog unless it was to protect someone else?

But that’s not how the injustice system is structured. It is set up not to foster justice or accountability, but to protect its own actors and its perceived legitimacy.

So what’s to be done?

Some suggest that more lawsuits are needed, as it would act as a deterrent. Yet how could that be if the individual responsible never personally faces any consequences? Even if someone “wins” in legaland, it’s not the offending police employee on the hook for the settlement, but hardworking people in the community. Remember—“settlements” are paid by tax money, not police employee salaries. If anything, this solidifies that police employee and their colleagues can shoot and kill with impunity.

Others recommend that new policies and training be implemented, to give police employees more options in their toolbox instead of their firearm, to go to during encounters with dogs.

Yet just like the lawsuit tactic, the training avenue neglects to start the conversation where it begins.

Puppycide is rampant because police lack the proper incentives.

Police departments, sheriff’s offices, and federal agencies are built on double standards. They claim “legal” rights to do things considered wrong for you or me.

If I went to your property, jumped your fence, broke into your house, put you and your family in handcuffs, shot your dog in front of you, then trashed your house, would my actions be justified if I claimed that I were looking for marijuana?

Of course not. Yet that same scenario is happening time and time again.

Consider the fact that while dogs owned by non police employees are killed without recourse, legalese exists that proscribes five-figure fines and years in a cage for anyone who even harms a dog owned by a police employee.

While it is impossible to be made whole when the loss of life happens, trying to remedy a coercive monopoly is fruitless and serves only to reinforce their claimed legitimacy.  

If you really want to end puppycide, strike the root. If someone kills your dog, or the dog of another family in your community, treat the situation the same whether they wear a badge or not.

Make the incident known to others. Share a recount online in text or video form. Link to it from your area Craigslist, Topix or other online community board. Connect with your local police accountability groups and collaborate to focus attention on the aggressor. And, inform the neighbors of the shooter about the incident - after all, wouldn’t you want to know if you lived next to someone who engaged in such predatory actions? Ostracism is a powerful and peaceful tactic.
