The Media as a Tyranny Enabler

“Killing someone in the commission of  felony is murder.”


The mainstream media is chock full of news articles attempting to mitigate the murder of Kelly Thomas, a 140-pound malnourished mentally ill man who ran from police. Before it was over six officers were on the scene and the 140 pound man ended up brain-dead looking looked like this before his grieving father had him disconnected from life support.


What was Kelly Thomas’s crime to be beat so savagely by police you ask? An officer thought he might have broke into a car. There were no witnesses to any crime, Kelly Thomas was merely a suspect. When the officer told him to halt, Kelly Thomas engaged in the capital offense of “Fleeing Law Enforcement”.


So, as six two-hundred pound law enforcement agents arrived at the scene, Kelly Thomas was placed face down after being tasered five times and was beat with flashlights until unconscious. After that the officers kept yelling, “Don’t resist. Stop resisting.” as they repeatedly dropped their weight on the back of the unconscious man’s head smashing his face into the pavement over and over again.


Kelly Thomas was described as a peaceful person despite his mental illness. He had never been charged with a violent crime. He was a loving person by all accounts.  His family photos showed he was greatly loved by his family.


Now the mainstream media, the one that seeks to keep Americans subservient to the corporate/government tyrannies, has dealt every trump card in its stacked deck to excuse this murder to attempt to bolster the state’s credibility and hide the extent that our police state seeks to stomp faces into the ground forever.


The first story I read was about how all the politicians and town functionaries are now working to develop national legislation to be able to involuntarily commit or retain mental patients to institutions while they may no longer be suffering any episode.  As they smashed an unconscious man’s face into the concrete until he was brain dead, the media wants to make it look as if this murder by police was the fault of Kelly Thomas not receiving proper psychological care and not due to criminality on the part of police.


The fact of the matter is that there are people in uniform who are sadists and think beating those who resist or even disrespect law enforcement is a sport. They want to create hostile situations so they can show that they can dominate those who oppose their tyranny.  I was a member of the Military Police Corps as a commissioned officer and comapny commander in the Army National Guard. I knew law enforcement officers from the FBI, ATF, DEA and other federal police agencies, numerous state police agencies, several county police offices and officers from dozens of municipal departments.


They all laughed and bragged about how they beat people, tortured people, handcuffed people to radiators and charged guys with crimes when they smarted off. They laughed about prison rape and thought it was a great way of meting out their brand of justice. The abuses of law enforcement and the authoritarian state is nothing new, but it has gotten progressively worse and is beginning to fuel uprisings across the globe.  In short, police and government lawlessness of the type we saw in Fullerton.California with Kelly Thomas in which the district attorney had already cleared the police of second degree murder and after being force to enstate charges had a misguided jury provide an acquittal by obtaining  lying expert witnesses who make a living testifying for police, has invited anarchy and major protests of the type we now see see in the UK, France and Germany.  The Fullerton district attorney reasoned that the police officers’ main goal was not to kill Mr. Thomas, ergo they did not commit murder.  Their wanton disregard for life and the fact that they were carrying out an illegal search for a ficticious crime that was reported to personally but falsely target Kelly Thomas did not matter.


However, law enforcment and criminal courts will tell you that killing someone during the commission of a felony, especially a felony in which there is a wanton and deliberate disregard for life that leads to foreseeable death, is murder.  How does this law not somehow not apply to police, especially when carrying out an illegal search?


Police abuse has led to extreme violence in Greece, Egypt, Syria, and in England it has led to the abyss of anarchy.  In Tunisia, police abuse and government indifference led to Mohammed Bouazizi engaging in self-immolation that sparked a violent revolution and led to the overthrow of the government.  It now seems that it will end up being a law enforcement incident that will spark a revolution in this country.


The power of our media lies in its ability to promote political positions of the variety that ensure the dominance  of the corporate elite who use this power to shape the opinions of an unwitting populace.  If you are very well informed about geopolitics, you will find yourself amazed at the misconceptions, propaganda, ideology, logical fallacies, lies and lies that cause people to hold on to absurd beliefs without suffering andy cognitive dissonance.  Their goal is to keep people subjugated and divided over superflous issues so as to prevent the public from discovering and acting en mass against the festering disease of police state abuse and elitest tyranny being hidden from the people.  The elite want the masses to believe the strictures that compose a social compact that creates and protects a two-tiered justice system that enables the elite to perpetrate major crimes while holding the common man under boot come from God and not from a group of corrupt and greedy kleptocrats.  In fact, as the political process and justice system becomes more corrupt, the police state must become more abusive to enforce greater tyrannies.  The media then engages in propaganda for the government using all types of apologetics, lies, propaganda, disinformation and thought-control by attempting to create subterfuge through pretend issues, contrived or hypothetical circumstances and the citing of irrelevent or falicious facts meant to create confusion.


In the Kelly Thomas media/propaganda operation the first line-of-duty death of a police officer that occurred after Kelly Thomas’s murder was brandished about in an attempt to show that cops sometimes have to make split-second decisions regarding life and death.  In this particular case a criminal pulled next to a police car, leveled a shotgun and blasted a police officer.  So, how is that relevent to six officers all holding one man down and beating him unconscious and then finally into brain death? There was no split-second decision regarding Kelly Thomas. They slowly and deliberately escalated uneeded force to a level that finally rendered the person unconsious, but also brain dead.  How long did they continue the use of dealy force after Kelly Thomas was already unconsious?  But, the media will work to garner support for a group of officers in sharply pressed uniforms with neatly trimmed haircuts, shiny badges and highly polished shoes who answer questions in terms such as, “Yes, sir.” and “No, ma’am.”, to garner public support for murders. 


I have had several encounters with police who out-stepped their authority and in each case I was falsely charged with crimes. It was not so much being charged with crimes that bothered me. What bothered me were the rampant lies, false police reports, probable cause affidavits and perjury that in every single instance accompanied the false charges.  In every case the lies were so ridiculous as to be found patently absurd.  In every single case the police had me painted as a raving psychotic lunatic hurling f-bombs and being irrational as soon as I was approached .


In one case I was arrested in Indiana by the Valparaiso Police Department for taking a picture of a car wreck.  One officer said I refused to leave the scene. Another officer said I fled the scene and had to be chased. A police picture showed me 10 feet away from the crash scene with handcufss on me after I was supposedly chased across a field.  Another officer said I was using profanity and resisting arrest, while three civilian witnesses testified that the police were lying about everything and every issue.  All the civilians were astonished that police engaged in perjury so shamelessly, mercilessly, and maliciously.  They were astonished that the prosecutors and judges allowed such obvious perjuries.


The officer threatened me and told me if I did not immediately surrender my smartphone and allow him to access all my data, he would charge me with numerous felonies and misdemeanors. I told him, “You can’t do that.” Then, he did. I thought the case would be immediately dismissed as I immediately turned around and put my hands behind my back.  The Valparaiso Police Department confiscated my cell phone and accused me of the felony, Tampering With Evidence and charged me with “Resisting Arrest”, “Interfering with Law Enforcement” and “Disorderly Conduct”.  They then used excessive force injuring me even though I had not resisted in the slightest.  What I had underestimated was the extent to which these police officers would engage in conspiracy and perjury.  They then sought and were issued a search warrant stating they needed all the data off my phone to include phone numbers, pictures, all typed data and digital information.


As I know judges love to carry water for abusive police serving the state, I demanded a jury trial. The trial was a two-day fiasco in which police contradicted themselves and looked like buffoons. The judge was forced to dismiss the “Resisting Law Enforcement” and “Interfering with Law Enforcement on its merits as nothing I did that the officers described met any elements of the crimes with which I had been charged.


The officers, five of them, then went all-out and each officer engaged in a criminal conspiracy and felonies by making false and conflicting police reports and issuing false and conflicting police testimony. As I had not met any elements of the crimes with which I had been charged, the more serous felonies and misdeamors were immediately summarily dismissed. So, they decided to go all out on lying about the ”Disorderly Conduct” charge.  Their lies were conflicting and absurd.  The Valparaiso Police officer, Captain Michael DeHaven, laughed at me as the jury decided its verdict, but the jury came back with a “Not Guilty” on the last remaining charge of “Disorderly Conduct”.  It seems the entire jury took the word of three 15 year-olds over the entire leadership of the Valparaiso Police Department, its Assistant Chief of Police, a detective, a patrol lieutenant an evidence technician, two patrol officers and a fireman they got to lie for them.


When I attempted to get my arrest record expunged, as all the serious charges were wholly without merit, but Valparaiso, Indiana’s Porter County Judge, David Chidester, refused to remove the arrest because in his findings the jury had taken too long to render its Not Guilty verdict after having had to sift through two days of conflicting and perjurous testimony.  Apparently, one hour is considered a long time in the Valparaiso courts when police end up looking like lying fools.


The Porter County Prosecutor’s office for the State of Indiana, who knew the police were lying, had deposed all the witnesses prior to the case. The prosecutor was about to drop the case when they were told to pursue the false charges. The Porter County prosecutor was contacted prior to the writing of this article but refused to make a comment. They claimed, “The system worked as it’s supposed to.”


The funny part was that the police claimed I became disorderly when they were arresting me and that was why they had to charge me with Disorderly Conduct.  The judge asked in his filings how an individual could be arrested for disorderly conduct for a misconduct that did not occur until after he was being arrested for the misconduct that had not yet occurred.  I guess the police decided to engage in an a priori arrest in which their knowledge and justification is independant of experience.  I doubt there is a single cop on the Valpo force that can explain even the most basic elements of epistomology, so trying to get them to understand the errors in their logic and reasoning would be an impossibilty.  The prosecutor went ahead with the case anyway.


On another occasion I was investigating an attack by multiple assailants for a victim by attempting to get witnesses when the Schererville Police Department had six officers attack me, tear my recorder out of my hand that I had informed them I was using to record them and damage the recording device thereby destroying the digital recording. They then surrounded me, grabbed me, refused to answer if I was under arrest, forced me in a police car, and then drove me miles from where I was and forced me out of the police car.


I filed a civil complaint, but all the officers all lied in court documents and said I voluntarily accepted a ride. I told them ahead of time not to falsely accuse me of anything as I was recording the incident. So, they claimed they mistook my recording device for a weapon and were forced to disarm me. They then deleted the recording by damageing the device. They then claimed I voluntarily accepted a ride when six of them grabbed me and forced me into a police car.


If I had resisted, they would have said I had been placed under arrest even after they refused to answer this query I had issued over a dozen times. They all laughed at me and denied the charges, and they all got away with it.


In both instances police injured me, used excessive force and threatened me after the incident, but when I went to the police station the officers in charge refused to take a report.  It seems committing perjury appears to be a perk of being a law enforcement agent. Not only is perjury condoned by criminals in robes presiding over kangaroo courts, it is encouraged and protected by those in power.


I had originally thought this abuse was directed wholly against me and took it very personally. I now see it is a disease within law enforcement, the prosecutors and the courts. The “justice” Americans now languish under is on par with the with that received by French peasants prior to the French Revolution or Russian dissidents demanding humane treatment under the Soviet NKVD. The only thing that saves Americans is that they get some semblance of a jury trial where the judges still try to stack the deck in pre-trial hearings so as to deny, not foster, justice. But, this is only when one has the means to pay for a jury trial.  Our system is all about money, state power and control of the masses through oppression that uses a legal system to provide its veneer.  It is true police “Serve and Protect”, but it is the state and its abusive power, tyranny and criminal rackets that are served and protected. The attitude of the Marie Antoinette lawyer class is, “Let them eat cake.” If Americans are lucky, we will have our “Age of Reason” and those acting as the new royalty and legal priesthood will soon be introduced to their Robspierre and Madame DeFarge.


Not all officers make the decision to beat people to death, but most who don’t because of having no desire to savagely brutalize others due to conscience, societal constraints, or fear of getting caught, use ministrations of a corrupt justice system, tyranny of the state and the impunity provided by courts for committing perjury to falsely accuse thereby use a corrupt justice system as their weapon of choice for the infliction of savagery via the state.  This allows the oficer to not have to feel responsible for the injuries to justice and their innocent victims


In the case of Kelly Thomas, the media, aside from blaming the brutal, savage and murderous beating on the fact that Mr. Thomas suffered from mental illness, then went on to say that people should not jump to conclusions, as murder is something that can only be defined by a court of law after a verdict. My response to that is to tell that to the families of the 68 victims of Anders Breivik murderous rampage.  Should we have held judgment on this lunatic until a jury pronounced its verdict?


Another telling sign about how corrupt our media is was that as the mainstream media, after working to misinform the public, failed to print Kelly Thomas’s face. Such an ommisson by the media was glaringly evident in its absence while it sought to convince Americans that such tyranny is something that should be supported by us mundanes because the police know best how to perform their jobs.


When a mainstream news article went on to excuse the crime by referencing the killing of an officer in the line of duty, as if because one officer being killed gives six police officers the license to smash a 140-pound man’s face into the concrete until unconscious and then finally brain dead, I was in disbelief.  Just as I told Capt Michael DeHaven of the Valparaiso Police Department in Indiana after suffering their abuse, “You guys ought to be real proud of yourselves. You really stopped a big crime.”


The shooting of man in England led not to riots as the police and media want to portray, but to revolts and uprisings against those who deny justice and engage in tyranny.  It led to anarchy because people are tired of a system that seeks a monopoly on violence while so callously denying justice.  This system’s abuse by its agents’ tyranny has gone unchecked, unpoliced, and is ofter rewarded, condoned, and even in its most hideous and repulsive forms is kept as hidden from the public as did the media with regard to hiding Kelly Thomas’ pulverized face.  In most cases, where the proof is not so immediately obvious and where there are no witnesses, the state makes it simply impossible to gain redress. 


Thomas Jefferson, our third president said, “The tree of liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” There is no doubt he was correct in his assessment, as the Constitution does not enforce itself, nor will tyrants acknowledge their criminal acts or the peoples’ right to seek revolution when the crimes under which they suffer become sufficiently heinous. In all the history of the world the state never lacked nor suffered from want of flunkies, sychophants and sadists to inflict its injustices and crimes.  These officers then become adept at using this tyranny to receive the self-aggrandizement that is provided by being allowed to abuse and misuse office and power with impumity to inflict injury upon those who demand their rights be recognized.


So, this is not the time to stand by and allow these criminals to get away with murder. It is not the time to allow the media to manufacture consent, apathy and confusion so as to cloud the issue. Now is the time to tell the government Americans will not stand for such tyranny, nor will we allow the government to abide by such misdeeds.  Now is the time to quit rationalizing tyranny.  Now is the time to support those who fight tyranny even if they kill police in doing so.  Now is the time to smash the police state and those who revel in its abuses.


The ironic part of this story is that as the Fullerton police beat this frail young man to death, he can be heard on video being tased five times and screaming for his life. As he called over and over again before being permanently silenced, “Dad! Dad! Dad! Dad!  Help me.”, for his father, who was a retired police officer at a police training academy where he instructed officers how to effect an arrest without harming the suspect, Kelly Thomas’s father, Ron Thomas, was nowhere to be found, nor did he spend much time sticking up for those who were also made victims.  It was his fellow officers who beat his son to death and now lie about the incident, just as I am sure he would have lied to protect his fellow officers had he witnessed the same type situation. 


Ron Thomas, Kelly Thomas’ father, called these officers a rouge group. Will Grigg begs to differ in his article “In Praise of Rogue Cops” , in which he proves this type of behavior is systematic and it is the rouge cop who steps in to stop such obscene belligerency that is regularly perpetrated by his fellow officers.  He runs a blog which documents crimes such as the murder of Marine Corps hero Derek Hale by police and their coverup. He has documented literally thousands of cases of police brutality like the BART shooting of an unarmed teenager who was shot in the back while laying face down and having two police officers on top of him. In the BART shooting, the first thing the officers did was to start threatening students and grabbing cell phones to hide the evidence of the killing. If they had succeeded in confiscating all the cell phones, this would have been followed up by the customary, “He pulled out a weapon.” The final result would be a review board finding the officer acting within the scope of proper police performance.


The Fullerton district attorney already concluded that the killing of Kelly Thomas was not murder because the officers did not act with the expressed intention of killing him. I am sure he is right. What they did was kill him while in the process of committing a felony crime, which under United States law is murder. They killed that young man with wanton and reckless disregard for life because they knew if he had survived they would be exonerated and if he died it would be their word against that of a dead man. They reasoned it was safe to savagely beat this mentally ill man because it was so unlikely he would ever get justice.  They all were very sure they would be protected and could get away with murder, and they were right.  This type of thinking comes from years of having gotten away with such abuse.  They were quite sure Kelly Thomas did not have the ability to obtain justice against six liars willing to perjure themselves to hide such a hideous crime while prosecutors and judges stand so willing to cover murder committed by their fellow criminals who also wear state-issued costumes with guns and $2 badges.  These officers recognized that the justice Kelly Thomas would have received had he lived was no different than the justice he received posthumously.    It took public pressure to finally bring charges, but when expert witnesess hired by police are allowed to lie and are provided from within law enforcement itself, the only justice one will receive is criminal.


The judges, prosecutors and police in the U.S. no longer have any legitimacy except for that rendered upon mob bosses by mafia dons. Their monopoly on justice, as in all monopolies, has led to a shabby and expensive product being provided to the innocent.  Americans can smash this criminal racket. We can rise up and decide to quit playing their criminal games. We can decide we will be free of tyranny. If it takes a violent revolution and police assassinations to stop these atrocities, it will be the fault of corrupt police, prosecutors and judges, not the fault of the systems’ victims who resisted tyranny.


The judges have provided a thin veneer of legitimacy to the crimes of police and prosecutors. They have been derelict in defending liberty and preventing government tyranny and criminality. But, it seems these arrogant malefactors relish in punishing those who stand up to tyranny and demand civil liberties.  They have become arrogant tyrants thinking it is their court as opposed to the peoples’ they have sworn to serve in the name of justice and under the Constitution.


Various groups are instituting a “Day of Rage in D.C.” It is Americans’ demand for a redress of grievances. Americans suffer under a warfare/welfare state, police/prison state and national security state as each such the people dry of their last remaining dollars. Prosecutors and judges have allowed a criminal system to steal all the wealth of the middle class. They have subjected Americans to a two-tiered justice system in which citizens are subjected to every specie of criminality, oppression and tyranny, while crimes against the people by those having or controlling government power have become institutionalized. They have made it almost impossible for peaceful change to occur. It was President Kennedy who said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.


It seems the words of Justice Brandeis have come to be realized and America has become pregnant with issues of which have invited anarchy and threaten to bring the terrible retribution of which he warned.


Justice Brandeis said, “In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means — to declare that the government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal — would bring terrible retribution.”


Just as the idiots in government were willfully ignorant of the financial disaster they have allowed to be inflicted upon our nation and indifferent to the crimes that caused it, so are they are willfully ignorant of the fire in the mind of men to have freedom and justice and be free of police tyranny and brutality. But as Ayn Rand said, “You can ignore reality, but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”


One day people will wonder how it was that petty self-important government functionaries became so drunk on power and egotistical that they felt they could deny something so important, something so easily provided, something so ridiculously cheap and yet a fundamental and essential cornerstone upon which all society is built -that cornerstone being justice.

      “Don’t resist. Stop resisting.” -The War Cry Of Dirty Cops.

      If you or anyone else ever hears this, then you know that someones rights are being violated.

      Think about it.

      Did someone mention if all the white people were rioting over this case of police abuse in Fullerton, CA? Was Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson present to oversee the protests? Did Obama comment that this could have been his “son”? Just wondering.

      Let the FBI do its work.

      You mean the type of work that they did when the tortured and murdered Kenneth Trentadue after mistaking him for Richard Lee Guthrie who was John Doe #2 in the OKC bombing? The FBI hid and destroyed all the recordings of the bomb being delivered because they did not want the American people to know they had lost control of an operation as they did with Operation Fast and Furious.

      If all Americans would read about FBI Operation Patriot Conspiracy, there would be a revolution in this country.

      The FBI are nothing but the national political police who will even hide and destroy evidence of presidential assassinations.

      They looked like fools in attempting to frame the Hutaree Militia. Now we know the Hutaree Militia were true patriots. The FBI is just another criminal police organization whose job has changed from political prosecutions to national security setups to garner headlines for bombing plots in which they recruit, radicalize, train and then arm morons and halfwits. They then step in as they failed to do during Operation Patriot Conspiracy and Operation Fast and Furious and then use the created plot to seek more power and money.

      Every single bomb plot except the Boston bombing was a FBI set-up that never would have occurred if the FBI did not recruit, radicalize, train and then arm morons and halfwits.

      Letting the FBI investigate is like letting the U.S. Treasury hold your gold. Go ask the German government how that one worked out for the German people.

        It is rare I read BIN articles thoroughly and fully. For yours I processed every word. America, as with other countries in the “first world”, is heading towards covert civil war. Remember the “plan” is to declare martial law and give, maybe, O-bummer (Mickey Messiah) an indefinite term to allow succession to the UN (your constitution is already, virtually, shredded). This ties in with a significant Jewish prophecy period for 2008-2017. I still cannot believe “they” will make “schedule”.

        I touched on a few of your points in my latest article:

        If I had caught this earlier, I would have given you a plug. I will bookmark and try and include you in my next post.

        Keep up the good work. You do the world proud.
