January 29, 2014 Site Staff 3

We know we aren’t imagining a problem when a leading intellectual think tank holds a conference specifically devoted to the topic of the American police state. Former Congressman Ron Paul was invited to speak at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute’s event in Houston, titled “The U.S. Police State.”

COTATI, CA — A couple and their roommate were terrorized when police officers broke down their front door and tased a husband in response to a noise complaint.

Man shot in the back of the head by FBI during 8-hour interrogation

January 24, 2014 O.D. 3

ORLANDO, FL — An unarmed man was shot to death in his own apartment by the FBI after a grueling 8-hour interrogation. The man was Ibragim Todashev, a Chechen immigrant being investigated because he was an acquaintance of one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing. He was ultimately shot 6 times in the chest and once in the back of the head, which his father describes as an “execution” performed to “silence” his son. Months later, the Feds still have not offered any cogent explanations of the the incident or why their agents altered their story multiple times.

Uniformed killers walk free after beating and tasing unarmed homeless man to death

FULLERTON, CA — In 2011, a group of police officers brutally beat an unarmed homeless man to death on a street corner with clubs, fists, and repeated electric shocks. The story got national attention when the video of the attack showed the mentally ill man wailed for his father as police bludgeoned him mercilessly. The story reached its heartbreaking conclusion when a jury announced that the police officers who had been charged with his death would all walk away as free men. The frustrating story shows that even in the rare instances when police officers face criminal charges for their brutality, their position of power makes it incredibly easy for them to get away with murder. The only objection the Fullerton Police Department had with the behavior of their officers was their use of profanity.

HOUSTON, TX — When a Houston man stopped for an alleged traffic violation in front of his house, a wild scene of brutality followed. Police punched, kicked, and brutalized the driver and his family who objected to the police actions. Original charges against the family were dropped, but once a lawsuit was filed against the officer for excessive force, the family members were charged with crimes — two years after the incident — in what appears to be a clear case of police retaliation.

Federal court rules that non-criminal behavior can justify a ‘border stop’

January 3, 2014 Guest 5

A combination of non-suspicious driving characteristics can give rise to the suspicion of criminal activity in the opinion of the full Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals. In a Christmas Eve ruling, the judges weighed whether Border Patrol agents were right to conduct a “border stop” of a red Ford F-150 pickup truck on Interstate 15 while 70 miles north of the border with Mexico.

The Police State in Review, 2013

January 2, 2014 Site Staff 28

While some “journalists” would have you believe the biggest stories of 2013 were about twerking celebrities and over-hyped real-life courtroom sagas, much bigger events were happening with far more lasting national significance. The foundation of an American police state is already laid and making its existence known, while most of the country remains blissfully focused on sports, reality shows, establishment pseudo-news, and other distractions.
