The American flag is a treasured symbol of the USA, and there are rules for handling, displaying and disposing of flags. The United States Code says the flag should only be flown upside down to signal "dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.


We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion.
The stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by premision.

“He jumped out and he sprinted towards me. I had my firearm already drawn on me, and I told him to put his hands up in the air and he was screaming as he was yelling, ‘Shoot me, shoot me’,” Kidder told WLWT.  “I was trying to open a dialogue with him. ‘I don’t want to shoot you, get on the ground,’ but he wasn’t having it. He kept repeating, ‘Shoot me.’ At one point, he said ‘Shoot me or I’ll shoot you.'”

Americans Killed by Cops Now Outnumber Americans Killed in Iraq War

 The increase in police brutality in this country is a frightening reality. In the last decade alone the number of  people murdered by police has reached 5,000. The number of soldiers killed since the inception of the Iraq war, 4489.
What went wrong? In the 1970’s SWAT teams were estimated to be used just a few hundred times per year, now we are looking at over 40,000 military style “knock and announce police raids a year.
The police presence in this country is being turned into a military with a clearly defined enemy, anyone who questions the establishment.
If we look at the most recent numbers of non-military US citizens killed by terrorism worldwide, that number is 17. You have a better chance of being killed by a bee sting, or a home repair accident than you do a terrorist. And you are 29 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a terrorist!
A hard hitting mini film by film maker Charles Shaw, properly titled RELEASE US, highlights the riveting and horrid reality of America’s thin blue line.
From the film:
500 innocent Americans are murdered by police every year (USDOJ). 5,000 since 9/11, equal to the number of US soldiers lost in Iraq.
In 1994 the US Government passed a law authorizing the Pentagon to donate surplus Cold War era military equipment to local police departments.
In the 20 years since, weaponry designed for use on a foreign battlefield, has been handed over for use on American streets…against American citizens.
The “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror” replaced the Cold War with billions in funding and dozens of laws geared towards this new “war” against its own citizens.
This militarization of the police force has created what is being called an “epidemic of police brutality” sweeping the nation.

SWAT Team Destroys Innocent Man’s Home to Catch Shoplifter

[Screen Shot 2015-06-06 at 2.37.02 PM]
Leo Lech purchased this Greenwood Village, CO home for his son, only for it to be left completely destroyed and uninhabitable by local police who used chemical agents, flash-bang grenades, and a breaching ram to catch a man suspected of shoplifting who ran inside the home.
This all started when suspect Robert Jonathan Seacat shoplifted from a nearby Walmart and fled, then he allegedly barged into a random home and barricaded himself inside.
When the suspected shoplifter wouldn’t come out of the home, the Greenwood Village SWAT team decided to turn the scene into what neighbors say looks like that of a war zone.
“They drove their tank right through all of our fences here.” a neighbor told 7 News.
“This is a paramilitary force used in a civilian environment … for one gunman? To use this kind of power?”
[Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 6.45.38 PM] Leo Lech told local media outlets that he is angry at police and for good reason. According to Lech, his homeowner’s insurance will cover the structure of the home
but everything inside is a complete loss. Lech’s son’s family, who were living in the home at the time, are now staying elsewhere with virtually nothing left of their belongings. “They are completely distraught. They lost everything too . . . things in there that can never be replaced.”
According to Lech, the Greenwood Village Police Department claimed it was not responsible for any of the damages and they have not returned any of his calls.

Our tax money is funding police brutality nationwide. We can't continue to fund the problem and play the victim.

When it comes to police misconduct, We the People sure do pay the price:
1. Our tax dollars fund the police departments. This includes salaries, training, and supplies/gear like Tasers.
2. When police misconduct occurs, there's an investigation, court proceedings, and in many instances lawsuit rewards. All of which are paid for by tax dollars.
3. Then there's the victim - who pays dearly in legal fees, if not hospital fees.
4. And the police who committed the crime? They typically get a paid suspension. Essentially, our tax dollars pay for the officer to go on vacation, and keep his job. Some punishment, huh? 
According to The Huffington Post, here's what police misconduct cases are costing taxpayers in big cities across the nation:
Boston: $36 million between 2005 and 2015.

Chicago: $521 million between 2004 and 2014

Cleveland: $8.2 million between 2004 and 2014

Dallas: $6.6 million between 2011 and 2014 

Denver: ~$12 million since 2011 

Los Angeles: ~$101 million between 2002 and 2011 

Minneapolis: $9.3 million between 2011 and 2014 

New York City: $348 million between 2006 and 2011 

Oakland: $74 million between 1990 and 2014 

Philadelphia: ~$40 million between 2009 and 2014
So what can we do? We can't continue to fund the problem and play the victim, that's for sure. Sound off with your solution below.

Flee the United States as Fast as You Can

Flee the United States as Fast as You Can

June 6, 2015
by Barry Cooper
My favorite tip for never getting busted used to be, “Never carry more marijuana than you can eat.” Although this advice is still effective, my new favorite tip is, “Flee the United States as fast as you can.” Although there is currently a paradigm shift in the awareness of inhumane and unfair acts taking place in America’s criminal courts, the politicians, judges, prosecutors and police continue ramping up their efforts to cage as many Americans as they can. My experience as a drug cop, crime journalist, defendant and current drug expert witness has given me insights into why living in the United States is risky and dangerous — it’s because of the sadly laughable U.S. court system.
Seven years ago, as a form of penance, I used my experience as a former drug agent to produce a series of instructional videos teaching citizens how to avoid being arrested for marijuana crimes. I also I produced an Internet reality show called KopBusters, where I exposed the abusive and illegal practices of police officers.
I tricked the police into raiding a trap house rigged with hidden cameras and a fake marijuana grow room. I proved on camera that the police routinely falsified evidence and engaged in illegal activity themselves. The sting led to the release of Yolanda Madden, a mother of two serving an eight-year prison sentence after police planted drugs in her car.

I viewed my style of activism as a clever humanitarian operation designed to protect citizens from a government holding the all time world record for the number of citizens it incarcerates. Unfortunately, my critics viewed it as a personal attack against God, children and the police.
The government began a campaign of harassment. I was S.W.A.T. raided once, arrested four times, my wife arrested three times and our autistic son taken for more than a year. All of the charges were misdemeanors stemming from the stings. The raid conducted on my home was not for marijuana but was for all of my media, videotapes, computers, cameras and journals. The American police seized these items from me, a journalist, at gunpoint.
After a year and a half of numerous, stressful and costly court appearances, the prosecution offered to drop all the charges if I would plead guilty to one charge and pay a $700 fine. It was obvious I was falsely charged but I accepted the plea offer to avoid facing a jury predisposed to convict.
In open court, the judge and prosecutor encouraged me to perjure myself by verbalizing that I had committed a crime I did not commit. To avoid jail time and spare my family further suffering, I admitted to the crime I was charged with. It was a lie. But my lie saved me from a dreadful and costly trial that could have ended in a lengthy jail term.
Plea bargains completely dispel the American myth of fair prosecutions. Under the current system, the government threatens severe punishment if the defendant chooses to go to trial and loses. However, the government loses nothing and is not punished if they lose the trial. Tens of thousands and perhaps millions of U.S. citizens would not have a conviction on their record if plea bargains were prohibited. To make the playing field level, the system of plea-bargaining must be banned.
The criminal courts are further tainted because the government’s treasure chest is usually much richer than the defendant’s who was poor at the time of their arrest and even poorer at the time of their trial. Although I often donate my craft by agreeing to work pro-bono, I normally charge an expert witness fee when hired to point out police corruption, the wrongful handling of evidence, search and seizure violations and K-9 false alerts. The majority of drug defendants do not have the resources to hire experts such as myself to counter the government’s experts.
If a jury trial were fair, the poorest defendants would have the same access to expert witnesses commonly hired by the wealthier defendants. Although the government purports to be fair by funding experts for the indigent, a government cap offers experts a fraction of what they normally charge — which usually causes the expert to pass on the offer.
Finally, criminal courts are laughable because judges enjoy absolute immunity if they deliberately make a ruling totally opposite of how the law or evidence instructs them to rule. I have witnessed judges purposely ruling against undeniable evidence and clear, established law to insure the defendant is condemned. Judges know defendants seldom have the resources to appeal their decisions. If judges were punished each time one of their decisions were reversed in appeals court, they would stop intentionally and habitually ruling against the law to unfairly convict the accused. This sadistic behavior is allowed unchecked hundreds of times each day in U.S. courts.
Does America breed more criminals than any previous or current society? Or could there be a dysfunctional flaw in the criminal justice system? Common sense says the latter. Until the criminal injustice system of the United States is totally revamped, my most valuable “NeverGetBusted” tip remains: “Flee the United States as fast as you can.” I did!
