    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    in Politics Conservative

    This show will focus on the cold blooded killing of Walter L. Scott by former Charleston (SC) Patrolman Michael T. Slager, 33.


    Scott, a 50-year old Coast Guard veteran and father of four, died Saturday after Slager shot him in the back.


    Five of the eight bullets hit Scott. Four of those struck his back. One hit an ear.


    The footage filmed by a bystander shows the end of the confrontation between Scott and Slager after Scott ran from a traffic stop. The video evidence contradictis an account Slager gave earlier this week through his former attorney.


    Slager has been fired from the police force and charged with murder.

    The Privileges and Power of Police

    in Radio

    Imagine going to Police Station and asking for help only to be turned away multiple times. This doesn't just happen on police television shows, but often by those attempting to report harassment at Law Enforcement Offices. What becomes more unbelieveable is calling 911 to report harassers and told they are not one of them only to find out these people are agents of police working with insurance companies or employers. Who do these people truly protect and serve? How can they be impartial when they have already chosen sides? 


    Policyholders only one paycheck away from homelessness have little chance to defend themselves against harassment and intimidation in order to eliminate benefits from a car collision.  Come find your voice todayby bad faith insurance behavior against Policyholders.

    Police Stops Checks Arrests Never Run

    in Christianity

    Lessons that may help during a police stop and while a check is being check out.In the even the police say you have to go with them meaning you are being arrested. Never try and escape or run. Do not continue to try and ask questions go peacefully with them so no need for physical abuse from the officer or officers. There may be a warrant for the arrest of the person being stopped but you may make bond or the judge ma release you on your signature.There is always the possibility of you doing jail or prison time. Yet if you make it to court because you did not run or attempt an escape you get to live and can get released legally from jail or prison you are still alive. Feedback is welcome on the topic of Stop, Check, and the arrest.
