2013 has been a dark year as far as police brutality and corruption is concerned. No longer does the phrase “isolated incident” or “bad apple” apply. Americans have been privy to gruesome and debauched acts of cruelty from California to New York and they are anything but “isolated.”
It seems that every time we get over one horrific act, a new and even more disgusting atrocity rises up to the surface. One need only click on “Badge Abuse” in the menu above to confirm this.
Many of these repugnant scenarios would have never gotten a second look had it not been for the brave folks who pull out their cameras to record the injustice.
One thing is for sure, cops do not like cameras pointed at them; we can rest assured that there will be more legislation in the pipeline that will try to quash this ‘check’ that we have to this ‘unbalanced’ system.
We must not be afraid and never give in to the attempts of tyrants to silence those of us who strive for peace and justice.
So let this list serve as a voice of the people, through a megaphone, aimed at those who would condone the use of unprovoked violence against their fellow man.

The war on drugs has reached a new low. 22 students at one high school alone, most of which were special needs students, were targeted in a highly disreputable ‘sting’ operation.
Children that have a hard time making friends because of their special needs, are easy prey for cops trying to persuade them into procuring drugs. These poor kids are unwilling victims of this failed system of prohibition that does more to ruin the lives of teens than keep them ‘safe.’
Another tragic police shooting happened in San Antonio. A 23 year old college student and prior valedictorian, Cameron Redus, was killed by a University of the Incarnate police officer. Redus was pulled over for allegedly speeding when the situation escalated into the officer firing multiple shots at Redus, killing him on site.

22 Year Old With Down Syndrome Beaten By The Police For ‘Bulge In Pants’ That Was Only A Colostomy Bag
Absolutely despicable case of police brutality in which cops beat a down syndrome man for a bulge in his pants!
David Eckert was shopping at Wal-mart and upon leaving he rolled through a stop sign. He could have never imagined the living nightmare that he was about to experience.
When Eckert got out of his vehicle the police thought that he appeared to be “clenching his buttocks.” What followed was nothing short of torture and rape.
This poor man was driven to the first hospital which refused to do the bidding of the police on grounds of ethics. But the second hospital did not.
According to the report Eckert was x-rayed and nothing was found. Then, doctors anally penetrated Mr. Eckert, nothing was found. For a second time, Mr. Eckert’s anus was penetrated, all the while he is refusing to consent, again nothing was found. After the x-ray and the two penetrations, doctors proceeded to insert an enema into Mr. Eckert’s anus, and he watched in horror and disbelief as doctors searched through his stool.
However, for these sickos, it was still not enough, Eckert was given a second enema, and then a third!! Still, nothing was found. He was then given a second X-ray, nothing was found. He was then prepped for surgery, yes surgery! Mr. Eckert was given a colonoscopy and his intestines were searched. Still, no drugs were found.
Mr. Eckert refused to give consent throughout this entire ordeal, yet the hospital and the police in their sadistic manner, cried for more and more. The Gila Regional Medical Center has even threatened Mr. Eckert for refusing to pay for his own rape!
We could go on and on and this list could be a mile long, but let these horrible stories serve as a reminder of what “protecting and serving” has become. We, as a society, are forced to pay for this “service” for our ostensible protection. However the protection received is trivial when compared to the extortion, racketeering, brutality, and revenue collection that actually occurs.
