From the Hampton Institute.

This is the institutional role that police have. And this is why the police are and always will be the enemy of the people. They serve and protect property, wealth, and the ruling class. Period. And in the US particularly, they fulfill this role under historically racialized terms that dehumanize people of color, even under a black president.
And *this* is where some defenders of the police get it wrong. Our critique of them is not as individuals, but as an institutional force that exists in opposition to our collective interests. The individuals throwing people around in this video may very well be loving and caring fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, and neighbors at home. But, as soon as they don this uniform, they become mindless drones in an inherently oppressive structure. And the “thin blue line” they have constructed allows them the self-righteous and psychotic delusion that it is “them against the world” at all costs.
The “bad apple” narrative misses this entire point, whether ignorantly or intentionally. The entire orchard is rotten to its core. And it is designed this way.

NOTE:

As queers we have long known that cops are our #1 most dangerous enemy. The 2015 U.S.Transgender Survey found that, Respondents experienced high levels of mistreatment and harassment by police. In the past year, of respondents who interacted with police or law enforcement officers who thought or knew they were transgender, more than half (58%) experienced some form of mistreatment. This included being verbally harassed, repeatedly referred to as the wrong gender, physically assaulted, or sexually assaulted, including being forced by officers to engage in sexual activity to avoid arrest.

Police frequently assumed that respondents—particularly transgender women of color—were sex workers. In the past year, of those who interacted with law enforcement officers who thought or knew they were transgender, one-third (33%) of Black transgender women and 30% of multiracial women said that an officer assumed they were sex workers.
More than half (57%) of respondents said they would feel uncomfortable asking the police for help if they needed it. Of those who were arrested in the past year (2%), nearly one-quarter (22%) believed they were arrested because they were transgender. So there are good reasons why we fear the police. Does anyone really not understand why many of us say, No Cops at PRIDE. Cops out of our neighborhood!

We can only hope that when LGBTQ folks see videos such as the above that they understand that an attack on one group of people no matter what is an attack on all of us. That we must no matter what crumbs have been given to us by the master join with others who are oppressed and fight back. There can be no middle ground on this. We can not wait until we are suddenly in the crosshairs of this machine. They will roll over us just as they roll over, murder and kill Black women and men. We know that many of them stand hand in hand with the Neo- Nazis and the Klan. It is fully in their nature. Remember that they will beat us just as they beat anyone who dares to step up and say “This is wrong!” They will kill us and they will continue to do this until the people rise up and put an end to this madness. All Power To The People! Long Live the Revolution!

The ACLU says, “It defies logic to arm the police with weapons of war, but that’s precisely what President Trump and Attorney General Sessions have decided to do.” We know as others do that police departments all across amerikkka have been doing this for years. We have written many times about this and have asked for a complete list of what weapons Hartford police have stockpiled. The police are not our friends and know and know again if they have such weapons they will use them against the people. But the people strong and united will storm the storage houses and confiscate these weapons.

and remember this: Cops are just one component of the bourgeoisie’s repressive apparatus for subjugating the working class and anyone else that strays from the bourgeoisie norm. If they can’t subjugate us they will kill us.

This is an important comment written by Joseph James Connolly on a facebook post concerning disasters and who profits from them. Yes its true folks we are up against some mighty horrible people. Thanks to Joseph James for permission to post this.

“Marx’s analysis in Das Capital of the so-called “Irish Potato Famine” provides a good start for a class analysis of disasters, especially within an imperialist context. Disasters are systematically used by the master class, just as they use unemployment and poverty, to discipline the working class through objective insecurity that amounts to class-based terrorism. Disasters also open the way to reconstruction of local economies that maximize profit while “thinning the herd.” In the case of mid-nineteenth century Ireland, Marx demonstrates that the British government knowingly refused meaningful assistance to a disaster-afflicted starving indigenous population in order clear away low-profit serf-like crop agriculture and pave the way for estate-based pastoral agriculture which provided much higher profits per acre. The fact that six million people died horrible deaths or were forced to flee to other continents was acceptable damage to reach a desired goal for Capital. In Houston, the real disaster is starting now. As in New Orleans, the population is likely to be systematically downsized, gentrified, and white-ified. “Precariate” members will remain at least partially displaced. “New Houston,” like “New New Orleans” and “New Detroit” will be a captial-friendly place with excellent “police protection” and hefty government subsidies to investors.”

Fight back!!

or rather a very misguided man who calls himself a pastor. Fool is what many of us will call him. Big fool is better. I would be very careful to claim to be speaking for god. We have heard he works in mysterious ways. Like the time when one of those so called reverends said that a hurricane would hit if a city in Florida held a gay pride. Well honey don’t temp the lord god for a hurricane did hit but it was in that reverend’s own home town. So Mr. Jeffres we would have to say, be careful. God don’t play with ugly.

…from all over the news media. This excellent article written by Sarah Pulliam Bailey was found in the Washington Post. We like it as there is a bit of a back ground to why some Christians may feel this way.

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to “take out” North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

‘God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un’ evangelical adviser says.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evildoers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

Jeffress said in a phone interview that he was prompted to make the statement after Trump said that if North Korea’s threats to the United States continue, Pyongyang will be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” (more…)

The master mind behind trumps travel ban is now revising history. Jerk of the week, #1 piece of shit, oh what award to give this gangster?

All we can say is FUCK THE COPS!!!  These are real deal rotten bastards. This is the part of amerikkka that trump loves.

Cops Smile With Pleasure After Giving Teenage Boy Permanent Brain Damage

It appears as though the officer involved in this attack will be — surprise, surprise — getting away with it.

As WMUR News reports:

The judge presiding over the case against a former Seabrook police officer declared a mistrial on Tuesday.

A YouTube video shows what some are calling excessive force by Seabrook police officers.

Jurors were not able to reach a verdict against Mark Richardson.

Richardson was charged with assault after video showed him pushing Michael Bergeron into a wall at the Seabrook Police Station.

The victim was a marijuana smoker.

Stunningly, the belief held by one of the jurors is that marijuana gives people “super human strength,” evidently justifying the officer in attacking the “super human” — thus the jury could not reach a decision.

NEW HAMPSHIRE — A video has surfaced showing a defenseless teenager getting his head rammed into a wall at the police station.

After the teenager’s head was rammed into the wall, he can be seen collapsing to the ground.

An officer casually takes out his pepper spray and begins shooting the boy with it. At that point the cops can be seen giggling and smiling with pleasure. After four years, the department is now reviewing the footage and investigating the officers, according to reports.  The incident occurred in 2009, but the footage was released this week.

After reviewing the footage that was uploaded by the victim this week, Town Manager William Manzi remarked, “The Police Chief and I take it very seriously, it will be a real investigation.

The results will lead us where the results lead us,” he said.

The cops claimed that they arrested the victim for drunk driving. But the victim reports that he was not drunk. He says that after he had been released from a cell for booking, the police told him

that he could collect his wallet and his phone. But when he reached for his belongings, the police began choking him, he says. His account gives the impression that officers were intentionally

confusing him in order to have an excuse to initiate violence on him.

Judging by the looks on their faces, it certainly appears that they enjoyed what they were doing and may have been wanting to pick a fight just for fun.

“As I grabbed my wallet from the table he officer with the glasses came at me saying he never told me I could take my stuff and choked me against the wall then tried to grab the wallet from my

pocket. once he got the wallet and my phone this is what happened,” says the victim. He says that he suffers from permanent brain damage now.

He also says that he has a  “permanent lump on the back of my head” and “chipped teeth.” After reviewing the video, police chief Michael Gallagher insisted to WBZ-TV that the teenage boy was “on something.” That doesn’t excuse any improper behavior on the part of the officers,” he added
