http://follybeach.live5news.com

Folly beach is the only Beach in SC that still allows open alcohol consumption. For the past two years - at least - the various bureaucrats have been trying desperately to come up with a good excuse to justify another ban. They'll get their way and alcohol will be banned on Folly Beach, but most people around here seem to know that the kops went there looking for a fight.

"Police say officers were trying to arrest a man for disorderly conduct, when a crowd then formed around them."

http://www.washingtonpost.com

North Charleston police officer lied about being shot

http://www2.counton2.com

"They had helicopters. They had people all over here, you couldn't walk the streets. They got people detained for four hours out there on the ground like we shot this police officer."

This woman, a resident of the community that was searched, was especially angered that Bullard chose to identify his fake shooter as a black male. "That's not right. It's all they do around here. A black person. Everything that happens, a black person."

Ten Years Later: Surveillance in the "Homeland"

A joint project between Truthout.org and ACLU

Ten years after the devastating attacks on New York and Washington, the fundamental promises of American democracy are hanging by a thin thread. Promoted by a culture of war and fear, the US government has steadily chipped away at those legal protections that enabled 'we the people' to rule ourselves. "Ten Years Later: Surveillance in the Homeland" charts the course of this shift, exposing the rapid advent of a technologically advanced surveillance state in the shadows of the Twin Towers.

Seven Myths about the Police

http://www.crimethinc.com

Seven Myths about the Police

The police exercise legitimate authority. The average police officer is not a legal expert; he probably knows his department protocol, but very little about the actual laws. This means his enforcement involves a great deal of bluffing, improvisation, and dishonesty. Police lie on a regular basis: “I just got a report of someone of your description committing a crime around here. Want to show me some ID?”

Kenneth Chamberlain’s Family Files Suit Against White Plains Police

http://www.democracynow.org

A $21 million civil rights lawsuit is being filed today against the city of White Plains, New York, and its police department over the death of 68-year-old African-American veteran, Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. He was shot dead by police officers inside his own home after he accidentally set off his medical alert pendant. Police have since acknowledged using racial slurs against Chamberlain — an act they have described as a "tactic" to distract him as they sought entry into his home. Today’s lawsuit comes less than two months after a Westchester County...

Caught in the act of lying

http://www.smh.com.au

A group of Sydney police officers just how great they are. After being called to a bus for a man who was too slow in showing a transit officer (not an actual cop, but a ticket checker essentially) his bus ticket, police decide to use a tazer on a man who made a smart comment. While in court for the incident, the group of police all collaborated and lied about the incident. What they didn't realize was that a passenger on the bus was video taping the whole thing.

Man arrested in a bar for public intoxication

http://www.thesmokinggun.com

The 22-year-old Iowan was at the Sports Column watering hole early Saturday when a pair of Iowa City cops arrived to conduct a “bar check.” Officers then “made contact” with Corcoran, who “demonstrated poor coordination, repetitive speech and smelled strongly of an odor of an alcoholic beverage.” While estimating that he consumed a few beers over the previous three hours, Corcoran registered a .212 blood alcohol content when taking a post-arrest Breathalyzer test.
