The Surveillance States of America:

Cops/feds monitoring pro-choice and #BlackLivesMatter protesters - flawed, facial-recognition tech, proven by @ACLU @amnestyusa to especially misidentify Black Americans.

And used against in court. The maps in this story show the neighborhoods monitored. #LAPD much the same.

If you're protesting pro-choice, wear a mask.

.@EunissesH Hernandez of @LADefensx, who advocates for abolishing the #LAPD as it stands now, has declared victory over incumbent LA City Councilman @cmgilcedillo, who has been something of a political icon in the LA's Latino community. @LAist

This is a bombshell

The latest @LACountyRRCC vote count had Hernandez leading Cedillo by 2,019 votes - an insurmountable lead, according to the Hernandez camp. Cedillo has yet to concede.

Hernandez leads 53.51%-46.49%.

One analyst told me, yes, Cedillo is sunk.
It's hard to overstate the importance of this outcome.

Hernandez, 32, was given little chance against the 68-year-old Cedillo, who spent 14 years in the state legislature before joining the council in 2012.

#LAPD killed again with a reckless, entirely unnecessary high-speed pursuit over allegedly stolen property. And sicko local media, obsessed with covering police chases as entertainment, broadcast it live. (Los Angeles, CA) |…
This is not the first time local television has aired an LAPD execution live, either. Brian Beaird was shot and killed on live tv by #LAPD after a chase in December, 2013.

Wow, I'm sitting here at @flyLAXairport @SouthwestAir & this white young lady runs out the door & on the tarmac trying to wave a plane down. It seems like it took the police forever to get here. If she were Black, she would be shot (with no questions asked)
I'm amazed at how GENTLE #LAPD is with this white girl that ran on the tarmac at LAX (federal offense) no weapons were drawn, they brought the firefighter for medical attention
So white girls can run on the tarmac and be able to stand up while they gently search her bags. This is wild!

Hey fam, I have an update on a story.

Remember the Black man who was bringing in his trash can when the #LAPD kidnapped him after a white woman called 911 on her white boyfriend?

Today a judge removed the protective order on the video the LAPD didn’t want you to see.
Here’s the second half of the video.
You can find the video on YouTube here 👉🏾… Image

#Tacoma must be different. I've absolutely never seen "afraid they would break glass" as justification for the use of deadly force. I have, however, frequently seen "attempted to ram with a car" as justification for *police* killing other people.…
Fuck you, @TacomaPD
Here's @seattletimes playing telephone and reinventing a direct quote, “He was afraid they would break his glass,” as the police use-of-force justifying "The officer drove away because *he feared for his safety*, Haddow said."…

This. Is. Horrifying.

Inside the Capitol siege: How barricaded lawmakers and aides sounded urgent pleas for help as police lost control…
When I was Assembly presiding officer I worked closely w/our sergeant at arms. And when I introduced the bill to end Open Carry I had to travel with armed escorts to public events. There is no excuse for this type of breakdown of security in a professional law-enforcement body
This reminds me of an event in 2017 #ProudBoys began harassing attendees at an event in #SanDiego at the @SanDiegoCounty Admin Bldg. Deputies stood & watched so I called @SDSheriff Bill Gore on his cellphone & asked him: Why are your Deputies letting Proud Boys incite fights? 3/

#LAPD I usually don't comment on local news but this police brutality/lack of action extreme case needs to get out in the world and be addressed as it is unacceptable, absurd and might be a provocation. An almost bipolar pattern. Thread.
1. #LAPD attacked peaceful BLM protestors who gathered by the LA Mayor's residence for 13 days. They used batons on people as seen in the videos above and here.
2. #LAPD This was a peaceful gathering, with children and pets present. Right before the attack, video.

LAPD rally today at the LAPD Academy— hello Proud Boy. LAPD breaks up #fight between a Proud Boy and BLM. Proud Boy assumes BLM is all fatherless and finds that hilarious (noted at the end of video)

Clearly Proud Boys are not “okay” with homosexuals. At LAPD rally today, Proud Body makes homophobic statement and tells me to go home because I’m a “little girl”

New Video:

- Date: 9/10/2020
- Location: Burger King (Sunset and La Brea)

Suspect was subdued by a security guard, held for 5 mins on the floor, and had suspect calm. Then the @LAPDHollywood screwed everything up & got humiliated —leading to this.

Thread of incident (1/?)
Suspect jumped a counter in a fast food restaurant and stole some cell phones. Helicopters in air searching, so may have been a search for him.

Suspect runs through parking lot, with restaurant owners *chasing with poles*.
Store owners corner suspect in fast food restaurant. It was at this point a brave security guard from another store got involved.

Clearly the suspect seems to be on something. What a site to see:

Formal LAPD Officer Misconduct complaint (attached)

OFFICER SERIALS: 43266 & 43618
Division: @LAPDHollywood
DATE: 8/20/2020

COMPLAINT: Refusal to provide identification

Summary to follow. @LAPDChiefMoore @LAPDLurie @LAPDBBixler

The @LAPDHollywood station captain @LAPDLurie has already confirmed that officers should provide identification when requested. The officer in this video either:

A) doesn’t know the LAPD rules/policies;
B) purposely tried to hide identity.

Either one is an indictment. Image
The @LAPDHollywood station will try to defend these actions by claiming they came back. But that was after some witnesses had already left. And it was clear their return was to prevent interviewing of subjects (as subjects clearly felt intimidation in vid)

Formal LAPD Officer Misconduct complaint (see: attached)

Division: @LAPDHollywood
DATE: 8/21/2020

COMPLAINT: Racial profiling; Search w/out Probable Cause.

Full vid:

Summary to follow. @LAPDChiefMoore @LAPDBBixler Image
Per usual, subjects (black kids) we’re stopped for a minor traffic infraction, then removed from car, lined-up against wall/fence, they were searched, vehicle searched (even under the hood) without probable cause of a crime being committed. It gets worse.... #LAPD
When asked what the probable cause was for the search, no officers had answers.

But I’m not the least bit surprised, as I’ve witnessed this officer conduct similar stops in the past — in which I’ve personally filed 3rd party complaints with the @OIGLABOPC: see here:

Did you know...

That Portland #Police Association (#PPA) President Darryl Turner is also the President of #ORCOPS, the Oregon Coalition of Police & Sheriffs, which he helped launch in 2015?

#PortlandOregon #PortlandOR #PDX #PDXpolice #PoliceUnions #PoliceBrutality #PoliceReform Image
ORCOPS website says "ORCOPS uses the Portland Police Association office as a home base with an on-staff social media manager, in-house communications, and shared resources so our overhead is minimal."
Tom Perkins is the Secretary-Treasurer, who is also from the #PPA.

#pdx #gov ImageImage
#ORCORPS touts itself as saying that their "members are the only law enforcement advocacy group in Oregon with a proven history of influence and representation in the State legislature."

This means they like to be involved in law & policy making.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained the details of the travel expenses of Los Angeles Mayor Eric #Garcetti’s Los Angeles Police Department (#LAPD) security detail from fiscal years (FY) 2015 – 2018 (1/3).
Over the four-year period, $438,195.06 of taxpayer money was spent on their flights, lodging, meals and incidentals. These costs do not account for salaries and potential overtime (2/3).
“Mayor Garcetti would defund the police and weaken police protection for citizens while personally benefitting from police protection as mayor on junkets abroad,” Judicial Watch @TomFitton (3/3).

#lapd something going on in #vannuys - inc#5386. When dispatchers start referring to a call by it's incident number only, it's usually something big. It's to keep people like me out of the loop as much as possible.
additional information: since I have not posted the location, sounds like the person calling is enroute to the location, and there are 4 people inside who PD wants the caller to ask them to come out.
I usually am able to find out more info about these calls via additional scanner traffic on other channels. This one is really quiet. No chatter anywhere
