Widespread Police Misconduct and an Expanding Prison Population

     When I was growing up my father always said that a policeman was your friend who would always help you out.  In the United States and world wide that is no longer an accurate description.

     The increased use of violence without justification by police both here and abroad can no longer be regarded as isolated incidents. From the massive tactics used to break up Occupy and other democratic movements coordinated by the Federal Government to increasing unjustified violence to the increasing purchase and use of military vehicles all indicate a disturbing trend. Further, this violence seems to be increasingly directed against innocent protestors or other victims.

     The reason I have so many references is to show this is a steadily increasing trend that I continuously update. It is not a vanishing blip on the radar. Failure to deal with this trend will have disastrous consequences for the future.

   Search  on the internet "police brutality" or "police excessive force."  If you search YouTube, there are many videos of cops acting WAY beyond their limits.  Courts have consistently ruled it is permissible  to not hire policeman or prison guards (often called "counselors") if their IQ is too high. (see reference 243 and others) Movies justifying violence and torture by police and federal agents magnify fear and make for juries and politicians increasingly reluctant to hold policemen accountable.

    Finally, the United States should face the fact that while it has only 4.5% of the world's population, it has 25% of the world's imprisoned people. We have the highest percentage of prisoners. Unfortunately, that percentage is  rising.

Help make your progressive case by using this documentation which is continuously updated. https://www.newprogs.org/make_your_case
