Federal Judge verdict: officers protect rogue colleagues.

http://www.boston.com

The city of Chicago is asking a judge to erase a landmark verdict that found there exists a code of silence in the police department that leads officers to protect rogue colleagues — a legal move that critics say is calculated to deny others suing over alleged police abuse from citing the decision as a precedent.

City officials are seeking to pay Karolina Obrycka $850,000 if a federal judge will overturn last month's jury verdict. (So, of course Karolina is wants the verdict vacated too - very clever)

How to Defeat a Taser Atack- SPIN!

http://halfpasthuman.com

Update: November 27, 2012. Crazy human who works in law enforcement training reports actually trying this with five of his students. Apparently at his school the students are required to take a low-dose taze as component of the training. Out of five students instructed to perform a spin, it worked with four of them...no resulting electrical discharge reached the student. The fifth was 'slow' in turning, and was initially jolted, but it lasted only a micro-second as the student's body was still rotating as she went limp, and that crossed the wiring, shorting out the electricity.

The Police State is Spinning Out of Control

http://silverunderground.com

What the hell is going on? I leave the country for a couple of weeks and when I get back there’s like 5 times the police abuse stories I’m used to. I generally try to handle the question with kid-gloves because I know for most people the term “Police State” triggers all kinds of cognitive dissonance and they’ll just stop listening. But it’s getting so bad, and so common, I’m starting to think we don’t have time for kid-gloves anymore. So, new approach. This time I’m not pulling punches. Just pure escalation.
