    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."

    News In Brief

    in News

    Locksmith lawsuit should be dropped, motions say


    Dropping the locksmith lawsuit would protect the guilty.


    One of the first questions, the court should deal with is whether or not the person who killed the locksmith and the deputy Sheriff committed suicide or was burned alive.


    It’s time for Sheriff Adam Christianson to produce the autopsy report that led him to conclude that the man who killed the locksmith and the deputy Sheriff committed suicide.


    Christianson assembled an army outside of this apartment with every intention of burning the house down.


    One disturbed man whose mental condition was ignored could have been subdued by turning off the


    water and electricity to the apartment and isolate the area.


    Christianson wanted more than keeping the public safe and bringing a man to justice. He wanted revenge and was willing to murder at the risk of more law enforcement deaths.


     


    Gaetana Rohrer-Drake


    But the sheriff's office had a long history with this man. They knew he wasn't mentally stable and they knew he had a stash of weapons. The deputy who took the locksmith with him was told three times that morning to be careful and he just laughed it off. When the locksmith stopped drilling and said he heard something in the house, the deputy told him to keep drilling. They should have stepped back at that point. They would both still be alive.
