Updates: Eric Garner and Mike Brown

Here is another update on the high-profile police murders of two Black men which have occurred this past summer, within weeks of one another. These are pending cases, whose [final] outcomes still remain months (if not years) away.

******************************************** 

ERIC GARNER'S FAMILY FILES SUIT

Targeting Cops first profiled the sadistic police murder of Eric Garner here, back in July 2014. One of the most high profile police killings nationwide this year, the murder of Brother Garner provided the catalyst for a hyper-awareness of police brutality and highly intense citizen protests which began in the summer and has continued throughout the autumn and winter.    


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Eric_Garner

Recap: on Thursday July 17th of this year, Eric Garner, a Staten Island resident, was stopped by NY police thugs and accused of selling "loose" cigarettes. Garner denied the charge. Instead of letting this pissant bullshit go, cops decided to escalate the situation. Clearly, Garner had been harassed by these goddamned racist beasts several times before. Fed up, Garner stood his ground - peacefully but assertively as every citizen proclaiming his or her innocence has the damned Right to. Within seconds, the situation had escalated very badly. Like rabid dogs, cops attacked Garner without provocation, with officer Daniel Pantaleo having placed Garner in an illegal choke hold. Infamous viral video shot by local resident Ramsey Orta captures the entire incident, from beginning to gut-wrenching end. In the video, Garner can very clearly be heard yelling out, "I can't breath, I can't breath!" over and over. Moments later, he would fall unconscious on the sidewalk, with several pigs on top of him. Garner was pronounced dead at a local hospital shortly afterwards.  




Ramsey, the man who shot the video, has since found himself the target of relentless police retaliation, having been arrested on a bogus, trumped up "gun" charge. Garner's family has since filed a $75 million suit against the NY police regime, six individual cops (including Pantaleo), and the city of New York. Pig Pantaleo remains on "paid leave", and is apparently in hiding. Neither he, nor other police thugs involved in Garner's death, have been charged with felony murder. And it is unlikely they ever will be. A grand jury to decide piggy Pantaleo's fate had commenced back in September, and results - followed by street outrage - are still forthcoming...

HELL ON EARTH CONTINUES IN FERGUSON

Little more than two weeks after Eric Garner's murder by police monsters in Staten Island/NYC, an 18 yr-old Midwesterner by the name of Michael Brown Jr. would be gunned down by a racist cop in Ferguson, MO. 

http://www.360wisehiphop.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/bbp.jpg

The ruthless, premeditated murder of Mike Brown was first covered in this blog HERE back in August this year, as well as in subsequent follow-up posts HERE and HERE. On Saturday afternoon Aug. 9th, Brown was gunned down by an armed criminal gang member of the Ferguson Police Gestapo (FPG). His only known crime at that time was... walking along the middle of a residential street. He was unarmed. His hands were raised and he was attempting to surrender, when he was shot dead in cold blood. He was 18 years old at the time and had recently graduated high school. He had been scheduled to begin college classes the following week. Instead of a young man continuing his education, Brown's funeral would be held on Aug. 25th.

The racist monster responsible for Brown's death has since been identified as officer Darren Wilson, a six-year gang member of Ferguson's police regime. The outing of Brown's killer did not come swiftly, nor without angry protests and intense international media attention. Once Wilson was officially named on Friday Aug. 15th, demands that he be brought to justice have only intensified. 

A LOT has happened in the modest, mostly African-American suburb of St. Louis since Aug. 9th. A timeline chronicling the first month following Brown's murder can be seen here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Ferguson_unrest

Though just "another" police killing, the murder of Mike Brown proved to be the straw that snapped the camel's back. Ferguson has seen once hopeless residents turn into passionate activists. Citizens from the greater St. Louis metro area, as well as from other parts of Missouri and the country, have put their physical bodies On the streets of Ferguson by the thousands. They demanded not only Justice for Mike Brown, but accountability for ALL police murders everywhere (*several high-profile murders of Black men have occurred in America this past summer, including that of Brown. TC will cover two more of them in a following up-date). And as all-white grand juries would decide the non-fate of officers involved, many citizens would call for killer cops to be fired and criminally prosecuted for murder. The reaction by various police regimes to citizens having expressed their justified grievances, have been hyper-militarized gestapo overkill. The likes of which only few other American cities have thus far seen (Oakland, Seattle, New York City, New Orleans, etc.). And something that would be more akin to a militarized siege of Gaza. Such an insane and dangerous terrorist police response in Ferguson has also drawn universal condemnation from international human rights organizations, who are typically more accustomed to dealing with human rights abuses in more unstable countries around the world. And yet, for a few months so far, Ferguson, America has had the international community's full attention. Not only protesters and average residents, but police terrorists have also violently cracked down upon journalists attempting to cover events on the ground. This has included, but in no way limited to, falsely arresting reporters, only to release them later on. The blatant tactic with the attended purpose of silencing [non-embedded] media. 

A brigade of police-gestapo storm troopers stands menacingly along a road in downtown Ferguson, MO. Police authoritarians have waged a campaign of terror, intimidation, and violence here since Mike Brown's murder on Aug. 9th.

#FergusontoGeneva: Mike Brown's parents travel to Geneva, Switzerland to make global plea on behalf of their murdered son, as well as all victims of police terrorist violence.

On November 12th, Mike Brown's parents, Leslie McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. traveled to Geneva, Switzerland to speak at the United Nations. Brown's parents gave testimony before the UN Committee Against Torture, regarding police violence, racial profiling, and civil rights violations. And not just over what's occurred in Ferguson, but what takes place in America at large. McSpadden and Brown Sr., along with several advocacy groups who helped make the trip possible, were hoping to pressure to international community to lean on the U.S. over the brazen human rights violations which happen here on a very common basis. Especially where it concerns police interactions with communities of color, and the militarization of police regimes all over America. 


 

Meanwhile, others have been killed by vile police monsters in the area, in the time following Brown's death. On Oct. 8th, 18 year old Vonderrit Myers Jr. was gunned down by an off-duty St. Louis pig "moonlighting" (in violation of his union contract, most likely) as a security guard. The murder took place in St. Louis where Myers lived. The filthy, bastard-ass pig who murdered Myers has been identified as 32 year-old Jason H. Flanery, a six-year gang member of the St. Louis Police Gestapo (SLPG). Now quite a few details remain to be known in this police murder. What IS known is that piggy Flanery made a number of posts in social media where he revealed his CONservative biases, including racist disparaging remarks against Black people. Flanery's hatred of homosexuals and liberals [in general] had also been exposed.

 http://33.media.tumblr.com/c5175015a2e282536d3e418ffd6939b6/tumblr_ndxi8w6QaS1smgrs7o1_500.png

Myers' family has had an independent autopsy conducted, showing that Myers was shot a total of eight times - including six shots from behind. Five of those gun shot wounds were found in both of Myer's legs, with another fatal gun shot to the side of his face. This corroborates statements from various witnesses that the teen was indeed fleeing when Flanery gunned him down from behind, like a coward. The "official" police spin is that Myers was armed with a gun and firing shots at [officer] Flanery. However, Myers' family strongly disputes this. And eyewitnesses don't back this claim up. Also, no mention of a gun allegedly fired by Myers has yet been recovered. Next time these goddamned cops want to LIE and say that someone they killed was "firing shots" at one of their own, it might be useful to actually PRODUCE A WEAPON!  Who knows what happened, but hopefully the truth will come out soon enough. Myer's funeral was held on Sunday Oct. 26th. Flanery is currently enjoying his paid vacation, while a St. Louis police "internal" investigation is conducted. 

Another murderous thug: Officer Jason Flanery seen here, in this particularly cocky photo. This St. Louis cop has been identified has having gunned down 18 yr.-old Vonderrit Myers on Oct. 8th. Flanery is also reported to have express views on social media reflecting his right-wing political and racist biases.

Cowardly murderer Darren Wilson is currently in hiding, but he still draws a pay check from the city of Ferguson. A grand jury decision on whether to indict piggy Wilson on... any criminal charges is expected any day now. In anticipation of the decision, Missouri governor Jay Nixon has declared a "state of emergency" in preparation of such a grand jury decision. Govt. Nixon also has the National Guard on stand-by. To confirm many people's fears on what the outcome might be, police terrorists agencies have been stocking up of military hardware since October. In another sign that is every bit as disturbing, area gun shops have reported a surge in sales in the days before the decision is expected. 

When that decision is made, it will be reported here, as everywhere else.

Mom Calls 911 Over Son's Mental Health Crisis - BIG MISTAKE!

No doubt she meant well. The poor woman likely did not know what else to do. She only wanted to help her son, as every mother would. But a wild police animal murdered him, instead. Now, she will regret it for the rest of her life... Such a goddamned needless tragedy!


http://theantimedia.org/mother-calls-police-to-help-her-son-take-his-medicine/

On the morning of Tuesday October 28th 2014, Jaunita Donald was in dire straights. her son, 24 year old Kaldrick Donald, was suffering from a mental health crisis. Jaunita had tried to get her son to take his medication, apparently to no avail. Desperate, the she called 911. According to various reports, she had made such crisis calls several times before. Obviously having only the best intentions for her son, she nonetheless had made a deadly mistake. When a cop showed up Jaunita had hoped that he would try and convince her son to take his prescribed medication or take him to a nearby behavioral health center... very naive of her, yes sadly. What happened instead, was that this violent pig tasered her son, then took him into the bathroom and shot him three times. 

This unwarranted, senseless murder took place in the small FL township of Gretna - population: just over 1700. Gretna is located 8 miles south of the FL/GA border, and is part of the Tallahassee metropolitan area. The ruthless monster responsible for Kaldrick's slaying has been identified as Sergeant Charles Brown

Small town rage: residents of Gretna, FL march on Sunday Nov. 9th, protesting the sadistic police murder of Kaldrick Donald, who was only 24 years old. 
March against police killing in Gretna, FL

On Sunday November 9th, a group of over 50 citizens protested Kaldrick Donald's murder. They demanded justice in the wake of Donald's killing, and called for the pig who gunned him down to be held fully accountable. Prior to this, residents made their presence known at a Nov. 5th town hall meeting, demanding that officer Brown be arrested for the crime of felony murder. Piggy Brown is has since been placed on paid vacation, pending an outcome... blah blah blah. 

Even though the filthy, bastard-ass pig-monster who gunned down Kaldrick has indeed been identified, few other details have been released regarding his background, and specific details regarding the shooting itself remain sketchy. However, it is worth noting that Gretna is over 88% Black. Kaldrick Donald himself was also Black. The exact nature of his mental illness has not been revealed, as of yet.  More details will be made available here, once they become known.

Austin Pigs CAUGHT on DashCam Making Rape Jokes

I've said time and time again that cops are every bit as misogynist as they are racist. Women are often subjected to sexual abuse, gender-based violence and dehumanizing taunts by those employed by city and state governments to serve to public. The following case should prove that women are in grave danger when it comes to police!

https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/1488649_989199431097053_5967802665525433706_n.jpg?oh=57fd3b1e24428acf573a09539909a80f&oe=54F3E693&__gda__=1425548882_c188f492d787014e6cd20666ea8c2aa5

Two members of the Austin Police Gestapo (APG) were caught making degrading, and even threatening comments and jokes directed towards random women who were walking out in public. The hyper-sexist comments were recorded on their own dashboard- mounted camera, DOH! Sometimes it can be a blessing in disguise that these pigs are soo goddamned stupid - otherwise, we wouldn't know nearly as much of the shit they were up to!

The misogynist comments were made back in May of this year, but have only recently come to the public's attention. Footage of these two disgusting pigs was recorded on May 24th 2014 in Austin, TX - go figure. In it, two cops are sitting in their patrol car, shooting the shit with one another, discussing a minor vehicle accident they had just attended. They talk about how, "shit would get real for the bad guys"... which is ironic. After about a minute of mindless banter, a woman walks by, just out of sight of the dash cam. One of these pigs then catcalls, "Go ahead call the cops. They can't un-rape you." Laughter ensues. The video was later discovered by lawyer Drew Gibbs, who was investigating the very vehicle accident the two cops had attended. An internal investigation is now underway, but don't hold your breath waiting for these two filthy-ass pigs to be punished.

According to local Austin radio station KXAM, the two Austin pigs have been identified as officers Mark Lyttle and Michael Castillo. Both currently remain on duty. The woman towards whom the "un-rape" comment was made has not been publicly identified. It is unknown whether or not she heard the cops.

Innocent Man Tasered By Pig... For Refusing to Show Papers!

Acts of police terrorism know no bounds. In the bleak dystopian pseudo-reality of the warrior cop, Civil rights do not exist, everyone is a suspect, and all are immediately subject to violent punitive measures. Like wild rabid dogs, any slightest bit of resistance (including individuals asserting their civil rights) can trigger absolute rage in these monsters.   

http://i.ytimg.com/vi/LL2qhOEztW4/0.jpg
https://www.tumblr.com/search/jamal+jones

On September 25th 2014, a passenger in Hammond, IN was electrocuted by a violent police thug... over an alleged seat belt violation! Jamal Jones was riding in the passenger seat along with girlfriend Lisa Mahone, who was driving. Mahone's two small children were back seat. At the time they were rushing to the hospital to see Mahone's terminally ill mother.

They were then pulled over by a gang member of the Hammond Police Gestapo (HPG) over an alleged seat belt violation (pretext/driving-while-Black). Mahone, the driver, was alleged to not have been wearing her seat belt. She produced her license as well as vehicle registration. She also informed the cop from the beginning that they were en route to see her dying mother, so a bit of urgency on the officer's part would have been greatly appreciated. Now at this point, such a petty, pissant traffic violation would typically end with - at WORST - a citation. However instead of letting Mahone get on her way, officer Dickhead decided to hyper-escalate the situation by turning his attention to Jones. Officer Dickhead demanded that Jones, the passenger, relinquish his identification. Jones initially asked why, as he was well within his right to do so. Jones eventually did hand over a ticket explaining that his own drivers license had been handed over already, due to not being able to make car insurance payments. This was not enough. When Jones continued to question this pig's motives, the cop then demanded that he immediately exit the vehicle. Alarmed and sensing his life may be in danger (and for damned good reason), Jones refused to get out of the car. By now, Mahone's 14 year old son Joseph, is sitting in the back seat, recording this incident on his cell phone. Contrary to official police LIES, this eye witness video proves Jone's claims that both he and Mahone were cooperative during the entire altercation.

At some point, another police thug appears and the two pigs continue their bullying and terrorizing tactics. Having held a car full of law-abiding citizens hostage for several minutes, while the driver's mother lies on her death bed, the two pigs grow tired of fishing for excuses. The second cop suddenly smashes the passenger side window, tasering Jones, and forcibly extracting him from the vehicle. This violent criminal act of aggravated assault was committed in full view of two minor children, sitting in the back seat. Mahone's seven year old daughter Janiya can be heard in the video crying, as these monsters attack Jones.

Jones was unjustly arrested and falsely charged with resisting arrest, as well as something called "failure to aid an officer", which sounds like a bullshit penal violation created and designed with the attended purpose of keeping "uppity" Black men in line. Thankfully, Jones and Mahone have filed a federal lawsuit against the Terrorist Hammond Police regime. According to their attorney Dana Kurtz, the two are accusing Hammond police terrorists of having violated their civil rights, excessive force, false arrest, and battery. In the suit, Hammond police terrorists have also been accused of 'malice' and 'reckless indifference'. These accusations are largely due to one cop having smashed the car window, shattering glass throughout the vehicle, knowing there were two minor children in the back seat.

Meanwhile, a panel discussion on a CNN show regarding this incident exploded in anger as panel guests argued the legitimacy of police stops and racist profiling. The heated debate took place on the CNN show 'Legal View' on Tuesday Oct. 7th. On the show, legal "analyst" and racist/clueless peckerwood Paul Callan argued that Hammond police thugs were "well within their rights" to electrocute Jones, abuse his civil rights, and terrorize a car full of innocent civilians on their way to be with a dying family member. However - Sunny Hostin, another legal analyst and woman of color, swiftly fired back, arguing that police were way out of line. In his attempt to defend abusive gestapo authoritarians and police-state terrorism, skinhead Callan denied that racism had anything to do with what had happened to Jones, Mahone, and her two children. Hostin lit into his cracker-ass some more, telling Callan to "GET REAL!", among other things. Good for her!

"This family was tortured for over 13 minutes. Those children were traumatized. And guess what? The law as it stands right now probably protects the police officers' actions."- CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin

*****************************************

As of the publishing of this post, the federal lawsuit against the Hammond, IN police regime is pending. Most likely, months will pass before a final outcome is reached. Though caught on video, the two criminal pig-monsters involved in this grotesque act of violence have not been officially identified by name.

Updates On Some Prior Stories

For this blog's single, full-time working author, it is impossible to keep up with the sheer number of police crimes and authoritarian acts of terrorism, which take place in just [this] country alone. Add to that, armed racist vigilantes who seem to be brought to justice at rates only slightly higher than those of actually bastard-ass cops (official state/govt. powers do go a long ways, but White male privilege alone also tends to help greatly).

The purpose of this latest entry by Targeting Cops is to give updates (with biases, of course) to a handful of previously covered cases. There is some good news, some fucked-up news, the rest continues to unfold and awaits final conclusion...

 http://41.media.tumblr.com/6316ffcd8c2b848da7afec0f957a0e05/tumblr_mkjkm7b76L1s9u3jeo1_500.jpg#_=_

RACIST KILLER DUNN FOUND GUILTY of 1st DEGREE MURDER! 

The shooting murder of Jordan Russell Davis was first covered HERE back in February 2014. On November 23rd 2012 Davis, a 17 year old Black high school kid, was riding with friends when they parked at a gas station in Jacksonville, FL. Racist thug Michael Dunn was also at that gas station at the same time. Dunn, a resident of Satellite Beach (roughly 40 miles south of Jacksonville), was in town for his son's wedding. Dunn had taken "offense" to supposedly loud music which was playing from the Dodge Durango SUV in which Davis had been a passenger. Even though he was going to be at the gas station for all of, maybe, 5 goddamned minutes, Dunn began bullying the Black teens to turn their music down. When they refused (as they were well within their Right to have done so), Dunn pulled out a gun and fired ten bullets into the teen's SUV. Several of those bullets hit Davis, killing him. His three friends were physically unharmed, though severely traumatized. 

 http://bernasvibethewayiseeit.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/jordandavisgunned.jpg
Dunn, along with his [then] girlfriend, went back to their hotel room. As cold-blooded as any human could be, Dunn ordered pizza, enjoyed a good night's sleep, and went back home the next day - where he was arrested and taken into custody. Dunn tried to claim he was "standing his ground" against "thuggish Black teens" whom had "pointed a shotgun" at him. He claimed to have "feared" for his life. These were all bold-faced LIES and they did his sorry ass no good in court. On February 15th 2014, a jury had deadlocked on first degree murder in Davis' death, but had found him guilty of three counts of attempted murder (for the other three people who were in the vehicle that night, all of whom testified against Dunn during trial). Even though Dunn (45 years old at the time) had already faced up to 75 years in prison for the attempted murder convictions, reaction to the verdict was mixed. After all, HOW could this violent racist thug be guilty of trying to shoot three innocent people, but not as guilty of shooting the one person who ended up dead???  

 
That question would [begin] to be answered on September 22nd 2014, when Dunn would face re-trial for Davis' death. On October 1st, Dunn was FOUND GUILTY of first degree murder! In addition to the 75 years he already was facing, Dunn now is looking at a mandatory life sentence... without the chance of parole. In other words, Dunn's ass is DONE! TC will give a 'final report' when this revolting POS is sentenced.
  
Justice had: Rest In Peace, brother. You have been avenged...

McBRIDE MURDERER SENTENCED!

As first reported HERE last year, on November 2nd 2013 Renisha McBride had gotten into a car crash while driving back home to Detroit, MI. McBride, who had been intoxicated at the time, was able to walk away from the crash, but she was dazed, bloodied, and likely suffered a concussion. The 19 year old Black woman was searching for help in the early hours of that morning, when she ended up on the front steps of Theodore Wafer's home. Wafer, an airport employee at that time, heard someone banging on his front door. When he opened it and saw a desperate, injured, petite young woman who wasn't White, he raised the shotgun which was already in his hand, pointed it at McBride's head, and blew her away. Wafer took his sweet time calling 911, and police/medical response showed up to find McBride lying on the front lawn, with part of her face detached.  The murder took place in Dearborn Heights, a suburb of Detroit.



After a couple of weeks of the local authorities dragging their feet, Wafer was finally arrested for murder on Nov. 15th. Wafer initially claimed that the gun had "discharged" by accident. He later changed his story and claimed that he "feared for his life", even though he had shot the young woman through a locked screen door. In another RARE case, White Male Privilege (WMP) did not have the typical outcome. On August 17th 2014, Ted Wafer, 55, was FOUND GUILTY of second degree in the killing of Renisha McBride! That was the last word on this case, until Wafer's sentencing. That came on September 3rd, when Wafer was sentenced to 15 - 30 years in prison. So, that's it for him!

MARISSA ALEXANDER'S NEW TRIAL - FACING 60 Yrs!

Even though no one was killed or even injured in this particular case, it is certainly one of the most disturbing and infuriating accounts of pure, criminal injustice ever covered by TC


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marissa_Alexander_case

On August 1st 2010, Marissa Alexander had been involved in a violent altercation with her estranged husband Rico Gray. At the time Alexander, who was 31 then, had just given birth prematurely to her youngest of three children. Gray attacked, strangled, and threatened to murder Alexander inside their Jacksonville, FL home. At least one of her children was present during this severe act of domestic violence. Alexander attempted to escape through the garage, but could not get the garage door to open. Since her very life was in danger, Alexander retrieved her permitted handgun from her vehicle. She then re-entered the house where Gray confronted her once again. Alexander fired ONE warning shot past her attacker. The bullet ricocheted off a wall and lodged in the ceiling. NO ONE was harmed. 

Note: Gray assaulting and threatening the life of his estranged wife aren't just accusations coming from Alexander. Gray himself has corroborated his own actions on that day, as well as threatening to have her killed, during sworn deposition. Not only that, but Gray has also admitted to beating up other women whom he'd been involved with in the past. Not only that, but some of these women have offered their own sworn testimony of having been abused by Gray. Not only THAT, but Alexander's son had testified on his mother's behalf in court (during her first trial) that Gray was violent and abusive. 

Despite this well justified act of self defense in which no one was hurt, in which the person in question truly did STAND HER GROUND, Alexander was arrested. She was later "offered" a plea deal to do just "a few years" in prison. For the mother of three who had no criminal record, who rightfully defended herself against a violent lunatic whom later admitted to threatening her life, who used a gun which had been legally registered to her, such a "deal" from prosecutors was unacceptable and offensive! Alexander and her lawyers went to trial instead. 

In May 2012, Alexander was found guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The verdict was handed down in 12 minutes, by an all-White jury. Thanks to Florida's 10-20-Life law, she was sentenced to 20 years in prison, despite the fact that Alexander has no prior criminal record and never harmed anyone. Her case drew massive international attention, as well as many comparisons to the infamous murder trial of George Zimmerman POS. This was due largely to the outrageous, bizarro-world levels of injustice in each case. But also largely, perhaps mostly, because Alexander's and Zimmerman's trails both had the same prosecutor - Angela Corey, first covered HERE in this blog. 





Naturally, citizens were enraged by what had been one of the worse abortions of justice there had ever been in FL. But before Jacksonville could be burned to the ground, and appellate court reversed the verdict on September 23rd 2013, stating that the the jury instructions were improper and that the 'burden of proof' had been impossibly shifted from the prosecution to the defense. A new trial had been ordered and Alexander was released on bail on November 27th 2013. 

Alexander's second trial had been scheduled for July 2014, at least that was the case when TC did a follow-up HERE back in March of this year. But instead of 20 years, she now faces 60 years if convicted. Fucking racist, evil Republican cunt Angela Corey is once again persecuting the case. It now appears that trial has been delayed or re-scheduled. In July this year, Alexander had been denied a hearing to seek prosecution immunity based upon FL's much maligned Stand Your Ground law. Beyond that, there seems to be little other news on this, as of now. Of course, this blog's author will be right on top of any new revelations, regarding a trial underway, as well as an outcome...

LATEST ZIMMERMAN ANTICS

When has this revolting piece-of-shit not been in the news? In lieu of regular employment, one of the worst human beings on Earth has managed to cultivate quite the "celebrity" status for himself. He's been selling his shitty artwork online, terrorizing ex-girlfriends, posing as a "security guard" for a motorcycle and gun shop, which the owner vehemently denies. Frankly, he really does not deserve the attention. However, it does well to keep tabs up on him, since some things just might be relevant. As has been mentioned before, Zimmerman isn't nearly good enough for martyrdom. May he be cursed and tormented until his very last days. He deserves far worse! 



On Sept. 9th 2014, the murderer of Trayvon Martin was involved in a road rage incident in Lake Mary, FL in which he [once again] threatened someone's life. The street altercation involved Zimmerman proclaiming to the motorist Matthew Apperson, "Do you know who I am", right before threatening to shoot Apperson dead. Apperson pulled into a near by gas station and called police, but by the time they bothered showing up Zimmerman was gone. 

But that's not all. In addition to his violent outbursts, often involving guns or threatening the use of guns, Zimmerman is also infamously known for his stalking behavior. Such was proven once again when Zimmerman showed up at Apperson's place of work two days after the road rage incident. Apperson called 911 for a second time and cops pulled Zimmerman over a few blocks away. Once again, as in prior violent and creepy altercations, police questioned the infamous child murderer - but declined to arrest him. 

Also, Zimmerman had been the target of a civil rights probe by the DOJ's Civil Rights division for the past two years. However, as that investigations reaches its conclusion, it's been reported that the cowardly thug will not be facing any federal civil rights charges. So he's off the hook for that, as well.

ERIC FREIN STILL NOT FOUND - GOOD!

As first covered HERE by this blog, American folk hero Eric Matthew Frein has continued to skillfully elude police capture! Frein, a trained marksman and war reenactment enthusiast, is the sole suspect in a sniper ambush on a police/trooper barracks in rural PA, which left one cop dead and another seriously wounded. The alleged ambush took place on September 12th 2014. Frein, a self-taught survivalist, was reported to have retreated to the backwoods after the alleged attack, where authoritarians from all manner of jurisdictions local/state/federal have concentrated their search efforts. But in addition to Frein's survival skills, the heavily forested terrain has made attempts to apprehend the alleged cop-killer... difficult, to say the least. 


https://www.facebook.com/pages/Support-for-Eric-Frein/690095247742659


Latest significant news regarding the search effort is that scared-ass cops have reportedly found a hand-written note which is said to have been left by Frein. Ok. Meanwhile, righteous support for Frein has continued to increase, as an out-of-control manhunt dredges on, and people's civil rights continue to get trampled upon. As more and more people wake up, they will begin to see police for the absolute monsters they truly are.

'KILLER' DAVE LIKELY TO AVOID JAIL

Targeting Cops first picked up on a Willamette Week article regarding Dave's Killer Bread founder Dave Dahl, after he snapped and made Washington County cops earn their paychecks last November. TC first covered it HERE, after the epic incident. Gone over were not only Dahl's alleged crimes at that time, but the life he had lead prior.

Seen better days: Dahl during an early court proceeding, shortly after his arrest last winter. 


After a life of crime-for-survival, drug dealing, and drug addiction, Dave Dahl had ended up in prison. Upon being released, Dahl turned his life around, abandoned drugs, and started his company Dave's Killer Bread, utilizing skills he had honed while growing up in his family's bread-making business. DKB was founded in 2005 and is based in Milwaukee, OR. On November 14th 2013, Dahl seemingly had a mental breakdown and lead Washington co. cops on a high-speed chase, wrecking two patrol cars and causing superficial injuries to several sheriff's deputies, from which they all had swiftly recovered. Good for them.   


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave's_Killer_Bread

At that time, there was wild speculation as to what caused the local icon to flip. Many openly wondered if Dahl had tragically relapsed. Well after nearly a year, there appears to be some resolution to the case. Dahl recently had a trial date delayed, but apparently he and his lawyers are hammering out a deal which would allow the reformed bread-maker to plead guilty except from insanity. In return, Dahl will likely avoid any jail time - obviously a positive step. The plea deal probably has much to do with the fact that Dahl had been recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Dahl's lawyers had for months argued that their client's actions last Nov. were the result of a severe manic episode.

 Dahl has come a long way. Here's hoping he receives the proper mental health treatment gets back on top of his game. Unfortunately, his company has since seen fit to throw Dahl under the bus, and this is almost certainly due to DKB's corporate New York-based investors. So, when Dahl eventually gets his shit back together, he's got some serious housecleaning to do!

CITY STOPS FOOTING BILL FOR FERRELL'S KILLER

The murder of Jonathan Ferrell had first been covered HERE last November. On September 14th 2013, Ferrell was heading home in Charlotte, NC when his lost control of his car and crashed. Having suffered only minor injuries, the former FAMU college football player managed to escape the wrecked vehicle. Disoriented, Ferrell walked along a dark suburban road that late night when he came across a residential home. In need of medical help, Ferrell knocked on the front door. The racist cunt who was home at the time, Sarah McCartney, instead called 911 - telling dispatchers that a "huge Black guy was trying to break in". When [now former] officer Randall Kerrick arrived on the scene, he gunned Ferrell down without a second thought. With no chance to even respond, Ferrell had been shot ten times - gross overkill. He had recently moved to Charlotte from FL to be with his fiance Cache Heidel. Ferrell had been attending school in Charlotte in order to become an engineer. 

Black extermination: Racist, trigger-happy cop thug Kerrick left, Ferrell right.


In a rare act of justice which still seems hard to believe, racist pig Kerrick was actually fired after murdering Ferrell - not given paid vacation! The peckerwood ex-cop has also indicted back in January this year on criminal charges. 

What's happened since then is that in addition to an upcoming criminal trial, former officer Kerrick is also currently facing a civil lawsuit filed by Ferrell's family. The suit was filed in January and it also names the city of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police chief Rodney Monroe, as well. Also, on Sept. 14th 2014, the one-year anniversary of Ferrell's murder, Heidel visited the site where her fiance was killed. 

Latest news is that Charlotte has ceased footing the bill for Kerrick's legal defense... GOOD! Charlotte's city manager actually had made the decision to stop covering Kerrick's sorry ass in mid-Aug. - but news of this was only made known last month. No word yet as to WHY the city would even choose to pay the legal defense for an [already fired] cop, almost a year after said cop shot and killed an unarmed civilian seeking help after a car crash.

Now on his own financially and shit out of luck, disgraced cop Kerrick currently faces felony charges of voluntary manslaughter. Perhaps he can launch a kickstarter campaign, so that racist dipshits can donate their pennies to his cause... Good luck. No trial date has been set.

LATEST ON MANIAC COP REEVES

This case of the theater "text" shooting out of Florida was first covered HERE back in January of this year. Old man maniac cop Curtis Reeves Jr. gunned down a defenseless man inside a  movie theater in Wesley Chapel, FL on Jan. 13th 2014. Chad Oulson had been texting his young daughter's baby sitter during the PREVIEWS before a screening of 'Lone Survivor'. Reeves, a 72 year old retired police capo at that time, became soo infuriated by this, that he decided to picked a fight with Oulson. When Oulson stood his rightful ground and refused to be bullied, Reeves pulled out a concealed handgun - which the premises strictly prohibits - and fired several bullets at Oulson, murdering him and injuring his wife Nicole Oulson. Reeves was arrested shortly after this sickening act of violence. 



An update on this story was followed up on HERE back in June, with some revealing details. Including the [then] newly discovered fact that Reeves himself had been texting his son, just minutes prior to murdering a fellow moviegoer... over texting. 

It cannot be overstated that all this drama and bloodshed had taken place before the goddamned movie had even started. 



A trial date has been tentatively set for March 2015, delays notwithstanding. No specific date yet, but apparently a window of between the 2nd and the 30th of March 2015 has been applied by a local judge. Psycho cop Reeves was released from jail back in July, after a $150K bail had been granted. He has been on house arrest ever since.  Any available updates on this case will be posted as soon as they are known.

DARK SECRETS KEPT BY UT COP WHO BUTCHERED FAMILY!   

TC first reported on a UT cop who slaughtered his entire family before suiciding himself, seemingly without reason, HERE back in January 2014. At that time there wasn't much information to go on. Now, more is known. 



On January 16th 2014, officer Joshua Boren of the Lindon, UT Police Gestapo murdered his wife Kelly Boren, their two young children, as well as his mother-in-law, right before blowing his own sorry head off with his service weapon. Little reason for this sick pig's motives were given at that time. Since then, what has been revealed is that the 34 year old Boren had held some dark secrets, a depraved sex addiction for one. It has also since been revealed that Boren had been drugging his wife Kelly, and sexually abusing her while she was unconscious. 

After the multiple murders/suicide, an investigation had been launched, lasting for months. It had concluded in July and only then were more details made known to the public. Including the fact that Boren had been raping his wife, drugging her, sexually abusing her while she was knocked out, and videotaped his sick sexual crimes. It actually turns out that Joshua had been drugging and raping his wife repeated over a two-year span, sick POS. At some point, Kelly Boren had discovered video tapes of her husband - in the act of raping her unconscious body.  Kelly had already wanted to divorce him by this time. The seven-month investigation also showed that the night before the gruesome multiple murder/suicide, Kelly and Joshua had exchanged a series of anger texts. In one text, Kelly confronted Joshua about sexual abuse. In another text, she threatened to move out and take the children with her. That night, the two basically agreed that their eight-year marriage was over... unfortunately, Kelly had no idea just how over it was.

Acts of a monster: horrendous pig-beast Boren pictured with his wife Kelly age 32, and their two children Jaden age 7, and Hayley age 5. This family photo masked some dark and twisted secrets.  Shortly before her death, Kelly Boren told her husband she would take the kids, prompting Joshua Boren to reply by text: 'Don't involve the kids, they are innocent'

Marie King age 55, Boren's mother-in-law. After murdering his wife and children, Boren shot King as well, before turning his police-issued service weapon upon himself.

Family and friends have paid their final respects to a Utah woman, her two children and her mother, les
  
Kelly Boren was a British national from Northampton, England. She had made the fatal mistake of moving to the U.S. to be with her deranged husband and raise their children. Her mother Marie joined her. 

Other details of the investigation reveal:

 - That Joshua had drugged and raped his wife as late as December 2013 - less than a month before he would slaughter his entire family.

- That Joshua had been seeing a therapist for his sexual addictions since Fall of last year.

- He hated sex offenders, yet at the same time fantasized about drugging and raping his wife. And that he also wished to abuse other women in the same manner.

- Word was starting to get out (amongst the small community, and fellow cops) about Joshua's perverted acts, and he feared he was about to be arrested and lose his career in law enforcement. 

- Joshua himself had apparently been molested as a boy, and this had lead to some serious mommy issues (among many other things).

- His own father had committed suicide when Joshua was just five years old.

- After his father's suicide, Joshua's mother began whoring. One of her johns or "clients" was alleged to have molested Joshua as a small child. 

- Google searches for "America's most brutal killers" and "narcissism" were made by Joshua shortly after he completed [what would be] his final shift for the police regime.

- The couple had already been legally separated at the time. Joshua was in the house alone, while his four victims were on Christmas vacation at Disneyland. When they returned, his shot them. Their bodies were discovered after Joshua had failed to show up for his shift duty the following night. 

The murders had taken place in the family's home in Spanish Fork, UT, 50 miles south of Salt Lake City. The tiny city of Lindon is located nearby. Joshua had been employed by the Lindon police regime there.
