‘I was arrested for protecting a pub from the far-right’: Amardeep Singh Dhillon was arrested under expanded police powers after defending a pub’s drag event
The cops say that the thieves weren't affliated with the protest, but if they knew who the thieves were they'd arrest them, so they don't know, which means there's no way to know whether they're affiliated with the protest or not.
Conversely, how would they know who's affiliated with the protest? I doubt there's a list of affiliates. Anyway, it's perfectly plausible that the thieves are a covert flash mob affinity group.
Naturally, the reporter didn't ask the commissioner why he thought what he was saying was true.

"Killed by Police Over Eight Dollars – Ethan Saylor's Story"
⚠️ CW: Disability and Police Violence (The details may be disturbing to some)
On January 12, 2013, 26-year-old Ethan Saylor of New Market Maryland, went to the movies to see "Zero Dark Thirty" for the second time. After the movie, his caregiver went to bring her car to the front of the theater while Ethan waited inside. Being his favorite movie, Ethan snuck back in to watch the movie again while she was gone.
The theater manager told him that, he would have to buy a ticket or leave but, he refused. Ethan had Down Syndrome and did not understand, nor did he handle money. Not disturbing anyone, he was watching the movie, when the theater manager summoned mall security to have Ethan removed. His caregiver returned, pleading with the manager and one of the deputies attempting to de-escalate the interaction. She begged with them not to touch him and requested to speak to him. She was ignored and not allowed to go to Ethan.
The mall security guards that responded were actually off-duty Frederick County Maryland deputies, moonlighting as security guards. When one of them told Ethan that he had to leave, Ethan again refused and began to swear in protest. Two other moonlighting deputies came to "assist" in removing Ethan from the theater. The three veteran officers, Lt. Scott Jewell, Sgt. Rich Rochford, and Deputy James Harris, forcibly pulled Ethan out of his seat and tried to handcuff him. A struggle ensued and Ethan was taken to the ground by the three deputies.
With Ethan on his stomach, at least one eyewitness account cited that one officer had his knee pressing on the man's back. It also stated that Ethan was heard crying out, "MOMMY, IT HURT!". At this point, I have to ask the question if these men were stupid or just callously evil as I wipe the tears from my eyes. Obviously, that question is rhetorical. It should have been plainly obvious that Ethan Saylor was, as some laws word it, a "vulnerable adult" with disabilities.
A few months later, a Frederick News Post story stated:
“Saylor cursed and resisted the deputies, and he was briefly handcuffed with three sets of cuffs linked together, according to the sheriff’s office. Saylor ended up on the floor during the struggle and had a medical emergency. He was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the sheriff’s office said.”
The Frederick County Sheriff's office investigated and later released Maryland Atty. Gen.'s report said in part:
"The opinion of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was that a 25 year old Caucasian male ROBERT ETHAN SAYLOR, died of ASPHYXIA. Down’s Syndrome, Obesity, Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease, and Accessory Conduction Pathways of Heart, are also significant conditions…This individual was already compromised by his Down’s Syndrome, obesity, body habitus, and heart disease, making him more susceptible to sudden death in stressful conditions which would compromise his breathing. Using the medical definition of homicide (but for the actions of other individuals Mr. Saylor would not have died), the manner of death is best certified as HOMICIDE".
In April, another news source reported about injuries to Ethan's face and cartilage in his neck, "which has yet to be explained":
“The autopsy revealed Saylor had bruises and abrasions on his face and body. And another injury: a fracture to cartilage in Saylor’s throat. Experts say it’s an unusual injury to see in a choking case. A forensic pathologist not familiar with case [SIC] says the injury happens from some kind of force... It can be seen in a manual strangulation, ” says Dr. John Hunsaker, a forensic pathologist and expert witness. “But in and of itself, one would be difficult to diagnose without more information. And it can occur as a result of a direct blow.”
The use of three sets of handcuffs is a tactic referred to as "hog-tying", in which the ankles and wrists are restrained and connected to each other with the third. In 1995, the US DOJ (Department of Justice), warned police departments that people may die when using this hog-tying method, yet there are still many that employ this technique of restraint. To be clear in regard to the sheriff's worded claim of a "medical emergency", Ethan's larynx was crushed and at least one of the sources below use the words "broken bones" in his neck. Despite the homicide ruling, 17 eyewitness account statements and Dr. Hunsaker's statements, a Maryland grand jury refused to indict the deputies for the murder of Ethan Saylor. One of the officers, Sgt. Rich Rochford, was later "quietly hired" by Frederick city Police Department, despite his involvement in the incident.
It seems I write about these horrific instances of police violence against people with invisible disabilities all the time. It's certainly not because I enjoy them, and it is very emotionally taxing to do so. The fact is, situations like this occur so regularly, there's too many stories to ignore. 50% of people killed by police in the US have a disability and unfortunately, many people never hear about, or care about stories like this. Many seem too busy fighting about colors or wooden hammers. How many of you have heard of Ethan Saylor, Christian Glass or Elijah McClain. I feel that telling their stories to wake people up, is the first step in inspiring them to stand against these recurring injustices facing the invisibly disabled community. Ethan is just another tragic example of the senseless, hateful authoritarian murders of otherwise innocent people. He was killed over an eight dollar movie theater ticket, to put things in perspective. This is one of the main reasons I do what I do, and the support for the cause of people with invisible disabilities is very much appreciated.

The slavemason frat had a sex slave and then they get the cops involved.
Tons of real cases. Cops are a union of pedos they give guns to. We should take their guns away! Pedophiles hurt kids. Its not a nice thing.
How am I still shocked by the scale of the problem with cops 😲?
This is the part.
We are living stochastic terrorism from the garden variety white supremacists.
We are living an occupying military white supremacist force (yes, #ACAB, even the Black and Brown cops) killing us at will, and we pay them for the privilege.
We are living a 'democracy' in which the #Christofascists choose their voters.
PSA: we still have to vote Democrats in, preferably those who won't switch parties as soon as they're sworn in.
Car drivers kill 200-300 people per year in #NYC, and injure another > 60,000 people each and every year. And yet when people in this city try to get a permit to remove cars from their street for a day, they're denied by the #NYPD due to concerns about "violence." 🙄
#Racism #ACAB What we have here are cops self-identifying which of them should never be allowed to carry firearms, or be cops, period.

Last year, an unarmed black man named Chris Kaba was shot and killed in London by an armed cop who remains anonymous.
This week, that cop was charged with Kaba's murder after a lengthy investigation, and almost immediately, dozens upon dozens of other cops turned in their tickets allowing them to carry weapons, basically putting them back on unarmed duty.
All I can say is: fucking good.
If you're the kind of cop who panicked the first time one of your own was even possibly held accountable, then it's probably for the best that you don't carry a weapon.
Even worse is hearing officials in the shitty conservative UK government talk about how cops can't do their job if they fear the prosecutor's office, or talking about how it's a "betrayal" of the trust the police had in the justice system. Way to say the quiet part out loud, folks, that you don't think the cops can operate if they're held to the same standards as the rest of us.

Cops weaponize the system on people they hold personal grudges against, but this is something else: this motherfucker took a friend to record his attack on an ex lover, after he had manipulated the system to commit her into a mental hospital. Perhaps he thought the video would be for his protection? Now it's evidence and the fucker is in jail.
Will he be found guilty? Who knows, he's a straight white cis man and a cop.
JUSTICE FOR ELIJAH MCCLAIN TRIAL UPDATE:
FRIDAY– DAY 3
Elijah McClain's mother left the courtroom in tears on Friday after body cam footage of his final moments were shown. Aurora Colorado PD has a long history showing a "pattern and practice" of victimizing and harming POC and people with invisible disabilities.
Elijah's "behavior" during the encounter was not that of a criminal in defiance but, a harmless person with invisible disabilities.
Lawyers for the officers accused of murder have attempted to shift blame to the paramedics had injected him with ketamine.

all the water has been bought from stores & the mayor has filed paper work in court to expand the looting laws. its crazy, the #CorpoDems use any opportunity, just like the GOP fascist to tighten the noose of 'law & order.
Imagine, people in a major US city cant get water and the mayor is worried abt having more authority to kill/lock up those too poor to afford the new price gouged water, not ensuring the water stays safe and cheap

Yet both main parties are calling for more cops. Why?
#ACAB Think this shows that at the very least we need to hire cops with a higer level of cognitive functioning? Remember many yrs ago (worked in probation) and tweens/teens who were sexting each other threatened with child porn charges. "The law is an ass".
While walking through the park this morning I shared with Benson how I'd react if every cop on the planet got sucked into a black hole (random), as well as unpacked my recent slight anxiety.
Trotting beside me, occasionally checking in, Benson is a good nonjudgmental listener.
The "copaganda" epidemic: How #media glorifies police and vilifies protesters
"How the pro-police focus of #mainstream crime reporting misdirects policy discussions and blocks real solutions.
Last year, Project Censored identified news coverage of protests by #BlackLivesMatter as an egregious example of "News Abuse," the Project's term for distorted, misleading coverage of genuinely important news topics. Legacy and corporate media portrayed #BLM demonstrators across the United States as violent and chaotic, despite subsequent evidence that, in 97 percent of cases, protests were peaceful and nonviolent. At the time, alternative and independent media carried very different stories, some with headlines accurately describing "police riots."

I hate it when someone shoots a cop and the paper *has* to call it an "ambush" to protect the poor pig's ego because he clearly just lost a gun fight. #acab
Please note all the #Copaganda around this never once mentions that the LA Sheriff’s Department literally (not figuratively, *literally*) has no fewer than SIX active gangs within it. Gangs. That steal and murder. Yeah. #California is not the liberal utopia fascists would have you believe. #ACAB
#LosAngeles deputy shot and killed after being 'ambushed' in his patrol car
“In a statement released Friday, Seattle’s police union says a video of its vice president joking after the death of 23-year-old Jaahnavi Kandula lacks context.”
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
NYPD continues to stop and frisk pedestrians, despite being ordered by federal courts to drop its stop-and-frisk policy 10 years ago. Black and Latine people are 95% of the stops, and are found innocent *by NYPD* 72% of the time.
