Police in Cobb County kill rapist

Should we celebrate this or should we be outraged?

On one hand, the police killed someone.

On the other hand, the guy was a piece of shit rapist.

My ideology gets confusing sometimes...

After decades of my study of the corruption of those who represent themselves as lawmen in the USA, I have determined on balance that Outlaws Are Better Men.

Collective Resistance

By David Roberts - one of the first 10 original members of the Georgia prison hunger strikers, currently captive in Jackson Prison.

We have now seen it on the news...Atlanta police attacked a man for "asking some questions!?"  They pepper sprayed the man and beat him, then 7 or 8 of them jumped on him and handcuffed him.  Looked exactly like another Rodney King thing to me!

Luckily an unafraid brother had his cell phone handy and videotaped the whole incident.  This happened a couple of weeks ago and hopefully the man's friends have retained a good attorney for him and with the videotape evidence, he should be back out there and waiting for his day in court with a lawsuit pending and some of those that beat him fired!

The first segment of video shows a youth being carried by officers after he was reportedly beaten by Officer Hall (#6728).

A crowd gathered and objected to the violence, and Lt. MJA Lewis (#3211) responded by attacking a man and woman in the crowd. They were both thrown to the ground, pepper-sprayed, and beaten while on the ground. The man was struck in the head, and has suffered a blood clot in his eye and other medical problems related to the beating.

Finally, the father of the woman who was arrested speaks out about the abuse of his daughter and son-in-law.

331 Officer Price - At a rally against police brutalityOver the past year, Copwatchers have documented the regular presence of plainclothed APD officers filming protests, rallies, and political events in Atlanta. It was quickly determined that these were officers assigned to the APD's Homeland Security Unit (HSU)( http://atlanta.indymedia.org/local/homeland-security-caught-monitoring-o...). Earlier this week, the APD's Plan of Action for the Occupy Atlanta protests was released to the public (http://atlanta.indymedia.org/local/atlanta-police-departments-occupy-atl...). Almost immediately the report, which is dated October 10th, 2011, tells us that "The Atlanta Police Department Homeland Security Unit has been actively monitoring demonstration planning by the group [...]"

Occupy Atlanta Municipal Court

            Over fourteen months after Occupy Atlanta protestors set up camp in Woodruff Park, the fifty-two people who were arrested the night of October 25 for refusing to leave the park, and over twenty others arrested in Occupy Atlanta protests over the next month, finally had their day in court. The defense team of ten volunteer lawyers, headed by attorney Mawuli Davis, spent the past year setting up a defense for the arrestees and meeting with Judge Crystal Gaines every week to file motions, and had days earlier served subpoenas on Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the Atlanta Chief of Police George Turner, and three other city officials. The city was still fighting the subpoenas when trial began on Monday, December 17.
