Police body cam footage shows the moment a Mesa, AZ police officer gunned down an unarmed man in a hotel hallway — a shooting where the jury found the officer not guilty of 2nd degree murder.

The 2016 shooting happened in a hotel where police were responding to a report of someone pointing a gun out a window. Philip Brailsford was one of the responding officers, and in this video you see and hear the cops barking out commands to a man, Daniel Shaver, and woman the moment they walk out of their room.

MDC adds, ALL COPS are LOSERS , 20 year pension play, LOESERS !!!! You hide behind a badge, act like both parties are criminals, COPS have turned into a NAZI CLAN .

Whistleblower tossed in Psych Ward

NYPD whistleblower Adrian Schoolcraft is suing the city. His trial is scheduled for later this year.SIPKIN, COREY/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

NYPD whistleblower Adrian Schoolcraft is suing the city. His trial is scheduled for later this year.

MDC applaudes Adrian for standing up and battling the corruption. 

A federal judge declined to dismiss key elements of an NYPD whistleblower’s suit against the city Tuesday, paving the way for a trial later this year.

Adrian Schoolcraft’s claims he was wrongfully thrown in the Jamaica Hospital psych ward by supervisors worried he was going to sound the alarm about an arrest quota system at the 81st Precinct in Brooklyn must be decided by a jury, Manhattan Federal Court Judge Robert Sweet wrote in a 206-page ruling. “A jury must determine whether the NYPD acted reasonably,” Sweet wrote.

The judge did dismiss a claim that Jamaica Hospital and the NYPD had conspired against Schoolcraft, who is suspended without pay from the NYPD.

“We are pleased that the judge dismissed several claims against the city and its police officers. At trial we expect to prove that NYPD officers acted reasonably in all of their interactions with officer Schoolcraft,” a city Law Department spokesman said.

Last week, the Daily News exclusively reported that Deputy Inspector Steven Mauriello was so concerned about the case’s effect on his reputation that his lawyer contacted a film student working on a project about the Schoolcraft affair.

Mauriello was Schoolcraft’s commanding officer at the 81st Precinct in 2009, and is alleged to have spearheaded retaliation against the whistleblower. Sweet ruled that Mauriello should remain a defendant in the case.

The Cell-Site Stimulator 



MDC discovers new snooping technology. The new marketing sounds like a sex toy . MDC says the continuation of marketing fear is so thrilling for law enforcement, almost like the TV shows. 

“The technology goes by various names, including StingRay, KingFish or, generically, cell site simulator. It is a rectangular device, small enough to fit into a suitcase, that intercepts a cellphone signal by acting like a cellphone tower.

The technology can also capture texts, calls, emails and other data, and prosecutors have received court approval to use it for such purposes.

Cell site simulators are catching on while law enforcement officials are adding other digital tools, like video cameras, license-plate readers, drones, programs that scan billions of phone records and gunshot detection sensors. Some of those tools have invited resistance from municipalities and legislators on privacy grounds.”

New York is like Fergerson

As director of the Police Reform Organizing Project (PROP), it’s my job to keep a close eye on New York City cops. Reading the Department of Justice’s recent report on the police in Ferguson was a kind of Twilight Zone experience for me—I literally shook my head twice at some of the findings, especially the most scathing sections, to make sure that the authors were describing Ferguson police and not the NYPD. 

For example, the Ferguson report found that black people make up 67 percent of the population and 93 percent of the individuals arrested by local cops. According to government statistics, African Americans and Latinos make up about 54 percent of NYC’s population, but account (link to download spreadsheet) for 84 percent of the people arrested by the NYPD. For young people, the disproportion in NYC is starker: Black and brown youth make up 94 percent of the “juvenile arrest population,” according to city stats.

Numbers PROP has assembled from our court monitoring initiative also document the racial bias in NYPD policing. Our representatives regularly visit the arraignment parts of NYC criminal courts in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens to observe who the cops have arrested and on what charges. In more than 25 court visits since last summer, we witnessed 873 cases. 806—or 92.3 percent—involved people of color. 

The DOJ report found that Ferguson police officials sometimes engage in outright racial slurs, including emails that mocked President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on the basis of their being black. 

A recent PROP report, which is not yet available online, called “They Got Bandanas On… Arrest ‘Em,” highlights similar bigotry. 

In one prominent case, an officer named Michael Daragjati was recorded on a wiretap saying, “I fried another [N-word]… Another [N-word] fried, no big deal.” (In 2012, Daragjati was sentenced to nearly five years in prison for extortion and arresting a Staten Island man on trumped-up charges.) In 2011, Cops referred to the West Indian Day Parade in a Facebook group as “Savage Day,” “this coconut parade” and “pure savagery.” And one officer speaking to three high school students just after their arrest asked, “What are you, fucking Russian? No, you’re Jewish. Go back to Israel… or wherever the fuck you’re from.” 

The DOJ report also included an anecdotal record to show that arrest and summons practices in Ferguson are often biased, and sometimes frivolous. Here are some stories (some of which we assembled in a report this summer and others that have yet to be published) about NYPD officers that unfortunately are not isolated examples, but all too emblematic of ongoing practices: 

  • In 2014, a Latino boy and girl were walking her dog in a Harlem park. Police officers approached and spoke rudely to them. The officers gave each teenager a summons for “being in the park after dusk.” The officers wrote on the tickets that it was 11 PM, even though it was actually eight o’clock. The girl reported being terrified when she appeared in summons court and said that she still felt that way even after the judge “threw the summonses out.”
  • In 2013, as part of a squad that regulates street vendors, police officers arrested a Chinese woman who has a license to sell flowers because she had two artificial flowers on her cart for decorative purposes.
  • In 2014, a police officer arrested a young black man for walking between the cars of a stopped subway train.
  • In 2013, a police officer arrested a 16-year-old Latino boy on two different occasions for trespassing while the boy was standing in the lobby of the building he lives in.
  • In 2013, police officers approached seven pedicab drivers who were on break and told the drivers that they each needed an arrest. Since there were more drivers than officers, the officers told the drivers to play a game to determine who would be the four people arrested. The drivers were arrested for unauthorized parking and spent 15 hours locked up before a judge dismissed the charges.
  • In 2014, a public defender working in the arraignment part of Brooklyn’s criminal court on a Saturday night reported handling five jaywalking cases. Each case involved a man of color, each man had been cuffed and arrested, three of the men had outstanding warrants for minor infractions, but two of the men had no criminal record—until now.

The DOJ Ferguson report emphasized that the arrests and summonses in Ferguson often result in fines being levied against low-income people who can barely afford to pay them—if they can at all. A similar practice persists in NYC, since the vast majority of people arrested and ticketed here are poor. Here are two recent examples: 

  • The police often arrest a middle-aged homeless black man on charges like trespassing, begging, or sleeping on the subway. On one occasion last year, the judge applied a fine that the homeless man explained he could not afford to pay. The judge, evidently in a Dickensian frame of mind, then ordered a reduction in the man’s regular food stamp payments ’till the amount of the fine was covered.
  • During our most recent court monitoring visit this year, we saw a judge issue a $250 fine against a middle-aged black man charged with farebeating. “$250 for a man who could not afford $2.50 to get on the subway,” commented a PROP volunteer.

Finally, the DOJ report found that one of the most damaging practices in Ferguson is a quota system for tickets and arrests: “Officer evaluations and promotions depend to an inordinate degree on ‘productivity'”—the same euphemism that has been used by NYPD brass—”meaning the number of citations issued. Partly as a consequence… many officers appear to see some residents, especially those who live in Ferguson’s predominantly African-American neighborhoods, less as constituents to be protected than as potential offenders and sources of revenue.” 

While NYPD officials deny quotas exist—since recent state law effectively prohibits their use, department chiefs have little choice but to issue steadfast denials—evidence keeps mounting to challenge their claims. Several lawsuits, including one on behalf of aggrieved minority officers, accuse the department of applying quotas. “City cops are routinely denied overtime and vacations, demoted to menial posts, and ultimately threatened with being fired for not making quotas,” as the New York Postreported earlier this month. 

In a conversation last summer, an on-duty officer told me that there are quotas, that they are unwritten, that they are different for different communities—meaning that they are higher in communities of color—that, although he doesn’t like it, he’ll strive to meet his quota to remain in good standing within the department, and that “it’s easier to arrest black and brown kids” than other people. 

It is time that New York’s political leaders, from Mayor Bill de Blasio on down, come to terms with the ugly truth that—despite the city’s progressive reputation—day-to-day policing practices here are as unjust and starkly racially biased as in any jurisdiction in our country. Hopefully, they will not wait for the aggressive intervention of a federal agency, but will on their own take steps to abolish the current quota system, to abandon “broken windows” policing that targets people of color who engage in low-level infractions, and adopt a public safety approach built on a partnership between community leaders, neighborhood and government service organizations, and law enforcement.

NYPD Cop Indicted 


A New York Police Department officer has been indicted on criminal charges by a grand jury for fatally shooting an unarmed Brooklyn man in the stairwell of a local apartment complex.

After less than a week of hearing the case, the grand jury indicted rookie officer Peter Liang on charges that could send him to prison for up to 15 years for the death of 28-year-old Akai Gurley. Liang, 27, was charged with second-degree manslaughter, reckless endangerment, second-degree assault, and official misconduct.

Liang is expected to turn himself in on Wednesday ahead of his arraignment in Brooklyn Supreme Court. A spokeswoman for the Brooklyn District Attorney declined to comment.

I’m glad the grand jury looked at the evidence and returned an indictment,” Kimberly Ballinger, Gurley’s domestic partner and the mother of his two-year-old daughter, told New York Daily News. Ballinger plans to sue New York City for $50 million over Gurley’s death.

On November 20, Liang discharged one bullet when patrolling the unlit stairway of a Brooklyn housing project, striking unarmed Gurley in the chest as the man stood in the landing a floor below. Liang, on the force for less than 18 months, was allegedly holding a flashlight in his right hand and his 9-mm Glock in his left, which he was using to open a door when the gun fired.

Liang said he fired the gun accidentally. In the wake of the shooting, the Daily News reported that Liang and his partner did not answer the radio in the six minutes right after the shooting, but instead texted their union delegates.

NYC Police and The Good Bad Ugly

IMG_1901.JPG

In NYC, the police have a mixed reputation, not unlike the rest of the opinions of police across America.

Some of the good police are in the hot crime spots across New York City, especially in the housing projects where the poorest New Yorkers reside. Gangs, drug violence, poverty, unhealthy air, all create an environment where gunshots can be heard day and night. When police are stationed in these housing projects, crime decreases and the residents are free to move about without the fear of death every moment coming from some senseless person having no respect for others or life.

Unfortunately not all of the patrolling cops are part of the NYC community and live in suburban isolation. The best attempts from these finest cops are often disconnected to the real needs of those communities they serve. These officers are not prepared by the heads of the unions and bosses in general to perform with understanding but the efforts by officers good intentions is appreciated.

The bad police are the ones who have turned their backs on the Mayor at funerals of their own comrades in blue. The bad police are the ones with white shirts who inflate the hostile in your face behavior of the officers they direct. Many have violated the rights of the citizens they were sworn to protect. The incidents of the bad behavior go back but were particularly in focus during the days of Occupy Wall Street when the white shirted pepper sprayed over and over again while herding non-violent protesters into danger.

Citizens treated like cattle or sheep, prodded, incarcerated, when protesting legally, is bad policing. Detectives going after the Garners among us, over and over again, getting off on the harassment of the underprivileged and low-level crimes like selling a cigarette for fifty cents to a homeless person even though the cost of that cigarette in New York is about sixty-five cents per smoke is no longer acceptable.

The Ugly Cop is the one who joined the force filled with the shadows of prejudice and privilege. The ugly cop was this close to being a career criminal but the badge has afforded him or her a safety net, a shield of authority to mask the psychological mess behind the badge. These are the few but they too exist. Ugly cops acted ugly to fellow New Yorkers when stop and frisk was a quota you filled at the cost of your soul.

The police slow down in New York was a gift to the little guy who barely gets by without the usual harassment. It was very pleasant in town and the constant level of a charged environment wasn’t felt. The over copping of the City on New Years Eve and the way police herd the crowds is so demeaning that you wonder why citizens accept this loss of freedom to move. The Police show up to work under these horrible conditions that their bosses have imposed on them. Maybe we could take a moment to understand that the people in charge of our Finest are the ones that are the bad and the ugly.

The Brainless NYPD

MDC shakes our head over the brainless officers working for the NYPD.

Showing that even the police are incredibly brainwashed by TV programming that always shows them as needed heroes the New York police may have made a career-threatening mistake by effectively going on strike this month.

The 34,500 uniformed members of the NYPD, which Mayor Bloomberg once called the world’s seventh largest army, had two of their members shot this month and in protest they decided to stop harassing people for awhile.

According to the New York Post, in the week after the shootings, citations for traffic violations fell by 94 percent, from 10,069 to 587 compared to the same week in 2013. Summonses for low-level offenses like public drinking and urination also plunged 94 percent — from 4,831 to 300. Even parking violations are way down, dropping by 92 percent, from 14,699 to 1,241. Drug arrests by cops assigned to the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau — which are part of the overall number — dropped by 84 percent, from 382 to 63.

Threat of a NYPD COUP

MDC says, the battle of public relations between the NYPD and the citizens is sickening.

“The police union chief instructed his members to impose a martial law-type policing regime on the city.”

When Police Benevolent Association chief Patrick Lynch said New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has the blood of two dead cops on his hands, he was issuing a physical threat to both the person of the mayor and the civil authority to which the police are subordinate and sworn to protect. In a nation under the rule of law, such a statement by a representative of an armed and enflamed constabulary – 35,000-strong, the equivalent of three light infantry divisions – would trigger an immediate defensive response from the State, to guard against mutiny. But, of course, no such thing happened.

When Lynch’s PBA declared, in a prepared statement, that “we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a ‘wartime’ police department” and “will act accordingly,” that constituted an instruction to union members to impose a martial law-type policing regime on the city – with no authorization other than the weapons they carry. Sounds very much like a coup.

On Internet message boards, police union activists instructed the rank and file to refuse to respond to incidents unless two units were dispatched to the scene, and to double up even if given orders to the contrary. Under this “wartime” footing, the police would simply seize the power to deploy and assign themselves, as they liked – and to hell with the chain of command and civilian authorities.

To hell, especially, with Mayor de Blasio, who now travels nowhere except under the protective custody of police commissioner Bill Bratton, a “cop’s cop” and architect of the “Broken Windows” policing strategy that begat stop-and-frisk. Bratton translates de Blasio’s words into cop-speak, and has forged a tense truce between the uniformed legions and the man who won 95 percent of the Black vote on the promise to put a leash on the gendarmes.

There is no doubt the cops feel betrayed – a rage that has been building in synch with the growth of a nationwide movement that challenges the legitimacy of the Mass Black Incarceration State, of which they are the frontline troops, the “heroes” in the war to criminalize and contain an entire people. The chants and placards are an insult and an indictment of THEM, and of their centrality to the racist project that has been an organizing principle of the nation for more than two generations. How is it that cops can be compelled to “protect and serve” marchers whose purpose is anathema to the American policing mission: to beat down, lock up, and extrajudicially execute dissident, disorderly, uppity or merely inconvenient Black people?

The cops understand the law, and that the law is conditional, based on place, race and wealth, and that in the end there is only force, the use of which is their sacred monopoly. It’s what gives them a status that union paychecks cannot buy; what makes blue collar guys and gals “somebody” in society. Most of all, they know who is nobody: the beatable, friskable, disposable, killable folks who would be prey on any other day, but have lately been allowed to repeatedly parade down the most protected streets of the richest island in the country, screaming defamations.

“The cops’ rage has been building in synch with the growth of a nationwide movement that challenges the legitimacy of the Mass Black Incarceration State, of which they are the frontline troops.”

The cops are understandably angry and confused. As primary enforcers of the social order, they have an intimate knowledge of actual class and race relationships in America. Their perspectives are molded by the geographic and social boundaries they patrol; they are shaped and informed by the inequalities of the system they protect on behalf of the powerful people they serve. (Yes, they really do “serve and protect” somebody.) The cop’s worldview is also firmly anchored in the history of the United States. He may not be aware of his profession’s antecedents in the slave patrols, or even that the U.S. Supreme Court once ruled that Black people have no rights that the white man is bound to respect, but cops are the reigning experts on the borders that delineate rights and privileges in their localities. They know that public housing residents have virtually no rights that cops – as agents of the rulers – are bound to respect. They know that whole sections of their cities, encompassing most of the Black and brown populations, are designated as drug zones where everyone is suspect and probable cause is a given, or as high-crime zones where every shooting is pre-qualified as a good one.

These are the Constitution-free zones, full of people who get and deserve no protection by or from the police. The very existence of Constitution-free zones means that the Bill of Rights is not the law of the land, but a Potemkin façade, a con game, a chimera – and no one knows this better than the cops, whose job is to ensure, as best they can, that everyone stays within their designated space.

For about a million Black people, the assigned “space” is prison. The Mass Black Incarceration State is the edifice that defines the American system of justice, setting it apart from the rest of the world in size, racial selectivity, draconian sentencing and institutionalized torture (80,000 inmates in solitary confinement on any given day). The police are the drones that feed the infernal prison machine, and keep Black America in a state of rightlessness. As Shakespeare’s mercenary warrior Othello would put it: We “have done the state some service, and they know it.”

“New York City’s police force is especially prone to mutiny and coup-plotting.”

The cops threaten mutiny if the State does not stick up for the men and women who do its dirty work. PBA honcho Patrick Lynch denounced “those that incited violence on the street under the guise of protests that tried to tear down what New York City police officers did everyday. We tried to warn, ‘It must not go on. It cannot be tolerated.’”

To which the protesters answer: the police killings and the criminalization of a whole people must not go on and cannot be tolerated.

The movement has come to a critical juncture, a moment that would have arrived even if Ismaaiyl Brinsley had not made his own fatal decision. It was always inevitable that the cops would at some point demand that the State dispense with civil liberties pretenses and allow them to crush the nascent movement. New York City’s police force – by far the nation’s largest army of domestic occupation – is especially prone to mutiny and coup-plotting. Thousands of cops, many of them drunk, stormed City Hall in 1992 to express their utter contempt for Black mayor David Dinkins. But, the current crisis is far different, because it is the movement’s show, not the cops’. The people are exposing the most acute contradictions of American life through direct confrontation with the armed enforcers of the State. The cops are supposed to be upset. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. explained, “the purpose of direct action is to create a situation so crisis-packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation.” The crisis is here, and will grow deeper, but freedom is non-negotiable. The movement must win or be crushed.

The Punk from Baltimore

IMG_1857.JPG

We don’t know who among the levels of policing are responsible, or how far reaching the history germinating this crime, where the motivations may have come from. You take a known felon who shoots his x, a product of our society, been through the system and knows full well he is going back and he’s decided he won’t go back. This is his last stand. He is going out taking others with him. He took his miserable life out on our NYC Cops. A Hispanic and an Asian in uniform, soullessly murdered in cold blood in their patrol car eating lunch.

The mourning people of New York City have been shedding real emotional tears over the loss of Garner and the other unarmed sons of all colors shot by the Police, but no one wants Our Police the victims of senseless acts of murder from imported whack jobs having nothing to do with our city. We want our Cops unharmed period. And we want our Men In Blue to understand as we do that the burden they have been carrying is unfair. They were asked too much of. The former mayors of New York, Gulliani and Bloomberg ratcheted up the fear. Everyone was arrested, protesters were denied civil rights, and today we have the anguish of that period visiting us again.

Pat Lynch has been a voice of fear. He put his union members in harms way when he followed the leads of Gulliani and Bratton, Bloomberg and Kelly, and now as Bratton reverses his “broken windows” strategy created under Mayor Gulliani, the residue keeps mucking up the dialogue. Pat Lynch some of your officers are not fit to wear the badge. Some of the policies asked of your men were too much. Like quotas you never came clean or said this is not what my union expects their members job description should be. All the fine men in uniform that honor that uniform are victims of the few. Some cops may have been broken by the load asked of them by the force.

Our criminal justice system sold out to corporate interests and politicians got paid off. Unable, unwilling to bring any kind of process to help the incarcerated a corporate cost maintenance forever in the care of society. Politicians took the money from corporate prison lobbyists and now we have those that are forever falling through the cracks with nowhere to go. A sad hopeless scenario that many a soul is faced with.

The NRA proliferated guns in the states south of New York. Illegal guns come into a city that has no need of arming citizens. The crime rate is down and many people have been broken. They have taken it up the ass so long and still the cry goes out from mother’s who mourn children caught in the hellfire of police and politics, fear and invisible walls. Our overworked policemen, bending to the political pressure of fear and what ifs that drive the force to excessive aggression and no one will take the blame or responsibility.

There are more than a hundred sources contributing to this ambush. Our politicians haven’t had the courage or the life experience to represent the people they don’t work for the people anymore.

It is time to look within Pat Lynch before you blame City Hall. Standing up to the blue wall of silence, asking it to be torn down like that wall in Berlin, any wall, the wall against Mexico, our walls towards one another have to be torn down, we have become locked inside.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families of the slain officers. They are our heroes and they are now martyrs in the struggles of our times asking all to stop the divisive hate, the blame games, the lack of introspection we must all endure together.

NYC POLICE UNION PRESIDENT LYNCH PUT COPS IN HARMS WAY

IMG_1850.JPG

The Police Union Top Brass have kissed butt to the right wing “FEAR” agenda. It was easy after 9/11. The huge mistakes under Mayor Guliani and Police Commissioner Bernard Kerick by placing the Police Headquarters in a monumentally sized space at the World Trade Center almost stealing their lives, and losing a central command that was placed in New York’s most vulnerable real estate speaks volumes to their ineptitude. No need to rehash MDC’s position on the World Trade Center and it’s corrupt history. We have written extensively and still remain a disillusioned witness to the continued rip-off politically and financially it has become. It has been used as an excuse too often fooling patriotic citizens unaware of any past indiscretions of grand theft.

After 9/11, policing morphed heavily in a new direction. Instead of citizens wary of Rastafarian dredlocks living a Ja life, attention turned to light skinned mustached strangers. Everyone became suspect. In a bad economy our Governmental money flowed into Homeland Security giving huge profits to a select group of nepotistic businesses lobbied and professional.

New York City suffered from “stop and frisk” which escalated into the fiasco of heavy handed police actions against the citizens of the city. Why one might ask did the Union back that policy? It shattered relations, it fomented fear, and now we have innocents being murdered from an over-militarized, quota driven force.

We had the miserable experiences of Occupy Wall Street and the White Shirted Officers using pepper spray unconsciously, police brutality with herding techniques and false arrests.

The police during the Republican Convention in 2004 also used herding and intimidation against millions of marchers opposed to the War in Iraq. Earlier millions marched against the impending war with the same heavy hand used by the police to herd and intimidate, cops wearing armament and carrying lethal weapons against peaceful demonstrators. Oh yes, the police had plain clothed plants amidst the protesters, they always do. Yesterday in the protest march over the Brooklyn Bridge, hammers were found in a duffle bag, convenient to foment a fake plot.

It remains a question to many New Yorkers wondering how could the Police Union sanction “stop and frisk”, quotas, illegal chokeholds, overkill and indiscriminate murdering of our unarmed young citizens of color.

Top Leaders after 9/11 created a false frenzy bringing fear mentality to the New York City Police and Mayoral Administrations. It remains a question whether Pat Lynch or any other leader of an important union would have acted differently. Like so many of our Legislative leaders who never had the balls to tell Americans the truth, the Police Union fell into “if we don’t get our share of the pie, well let’s give them a show for the money”.

Pat Lynch is a Patsy of the Right Wings” Fear For Profit Politicians who will not let go of the American Borrowed cash cow Congress.

MDC says, he’s just another loser who is uneducated about history and he will announce proudly “I’m just doing my job.”
