Domestic security is getting pretty complicated, what with miliarized police operations, cameras documenting events that were previously unaccessible, "non-lethal" weapons that aren't really, and a really extensive internal security system. Marcy Wheeler and digby discuss these issues. Marcy summarizes the current understanding of who and how American citizens are being surveilled. Digby has been on the taser front from the beginning.
Crime rates are way down. Incarceration rates are an embarrassment, pointlessly ruining the lives of millions of Americans. Police departments are more diverse, especially in urban centers. A consensus against the drug war seems to be growing--but the Feds and the local asset seizure programs don't want to acknowledge that consensus.
Recap of Cops Brutally Beating Floyd Dent in Inkster, MI
Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.
"He was beating me upside the head," Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney's office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. "I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, 'tase the M...F. '"
The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.
As he is on the ground, a police officer later identified as William Melendez has him in a choke hold, and is repeatedly pounding him on his head. A second officer is attempting to handcuff him behind his back, but Dent has his right arm up, trying to protect his face and head against Melendez.
Another officer arrives and kicks him, and then another officer Tasers Dent in the thigh and stomach as he is handcuffed. Dent, who has worked for Ford for 37 years, said he was hospitalized for two days for injuries to his face and head.

The host at SevsDeadSerious is amazed by the level of racism we must endure in this country especially from those that are retained to "protect and serve". My question is who are they protecting and serving; it certainly isn't minorities, the poor or anyone who doesn't look, act, or sound like them, besides it's way too easy to take your gun, shoot the offending minortity, poor or whatever and then claiming it was in self-defense bewcause you THOUGHT he had a gun, or might have a gun, or owns a gun or can spell the word gun...now that justifies execution by police outfitted in gear meant for the battlefield when dealing with those you hated long before they issued a badge. It must be part of the law-ewnforcement courses we teach those who are meant to "protect and serve"...maybe we should protact ourselves from those whose duty it is to protect and serve. Racist cops on board for the Douche Bag of the Week.
Last Thursday we had an intense discussion covering police brutality. We discussed how Civilians not only have "Rights" but also "Responsibilities" you can't expect one without the other. Further, you can't exercise your rights if you don't actually know them. Finally, every punch, choke hold, Taser attack, and gun shot from a police officer is NOT Police Brutality! Those leather holsters and duty belts that hold a number of weapons and tools are not for decoration. They are to be used whenever necessary to control and manage situations. Handcuffs aren't made for comfort and a choke hold is not meant to be affectionate so every video you see of a police officer doing their job to preserve the law while also protecting and defending their own safety is NOT Police Brutality.
Police Brutality IS however, as Revolutionary and Activist Christina Stockbergerand a number of callers so raw and richly defined it: A criminal act by deviant thugs in uniforms with weapons, and government authority to wreck havoc in communities. Using excessive, and/or cruel or brutal force more than is necessary to control a situation. When using guns, Tasers, batons, and forms of intimidation such as guns, rape, threats etc. beyond the call of duty. Police Brutality is also often fueled by racist beliefs and hatred
Join us for Part 2 as we finish this discussion and gain the perspectives of police officers and past victims.

Government to provide another $3.8B in aid to auto lender, which has been unable to raise funds. Meanwhile, Twin Iraq bombs kill dozens and a federal appeals court on Monday issued one of the most comprehensive rulings yet limiting police use of Tasers against low-level offenders who seem to pose little threat and may be mentally ill.
Yes, a federal court decision on taser torture by cops, tonight on the slugfest, "if you can handle the truth."
