Hours after authorities announced they were looking for Dorner in connection with a double homicide in Orange County, the search intensified after three police officers were shot in Riverside County and Dorner was identified as a possible suspect.

This cat is a real bad dude . . . check out the blog (crimefiles) I listed above . . big guy with the right training and experience.  I think he will be more than what police are used to getting ahold of.  Interesting background stuff too . . . I'm intrigued by his military career. 

Dude had a TS / SBI clearance (top secret / special background invesigation) - this is not a joke and requires a 15 year investigation by the FBI - I know . . I had the same clearance until my discharge in 11/2001.  Something is "amiss" about this story and I'm interested to hear all of it.

Cops Caught Ignoring Calls, Slacking Off (Video)

"An entire Miami-Dade Police squad in Kendall has been disciplined -- several of the officers, fired -- after what CBS Miami reports is one of the worst dereliction of duty cases in the department's history.

One officer, Dario Socarras, was filmed drinking coffee for nine minutes while allegedly ignoring emergency dispatch orders on a call for an unconscious 5-month-old baby, Local10 reports."*

Miami-Dade officers were caught on camera slacking on the job close to emergency calls on armed robbery and a baby in danger. What were they personally attending to that was so much more important?

COP ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ABUSE!


==========================

The former police chief of a small Nebraska Panhandle town has been charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl while he was chief.

Prosecutors say 52-year-old Mark Lindburg was arrested Monday. He is accused of first-degree sexual assault and child abuse for what he is suspected of doing with the girl between January and September 2010.

==============================

A police officer was sentenced Thursday to more than four years in prison for using excessive force against a mentally disabled janitor who died after being erroneously suspected of stealing money from an ATM.

===============================

Cuss warning:

"Three police officers in Connecticut's largest city have been put on desk duty until further notice since a video showing them attacking a man after he had already been brought down with a taser was posted to YouTube.

A taser can be heard clearly as the man, its target, drops to the ground in the video, which shows an incident that happened in May 2011.

In a Bridgeport, Connecticut park, in broad daylight, two police officers begin kicking the man as a third, arriving by car, joins in. "*

In a shocking internet video, Connecticut cops are seen kicking, stomping, and even using a taser on a man as he lay on the ground, not moving. Is this brutality another reason why law enforcement should be recorded on the job?

Police Caught Kicking, Tasering Man Lying on Ground (VIDEO)


========================

"Greek authorities on Monday faced an uproar after allegations that police had brutally beaten four suspected members of a local terrorist group before publishing manipulated mugshots of the men in a crude attempt to disguise their injuries."*

Pictures of anarchy suspects in Greece were discovered to have been photoshopped to cover up bruises, cuts, and injuries sustained when they were beaten by police officers.

Eating Oreos is now a felony??

"A Walmart employe in Indiana has been charged with felony theft after she was caught munching Oreos filched from the store's shelves, police said.

When confronted by cops with video of the alleged theft, Penny S. Winters, 63, admitted she ate the cookies and said she had been doing it for years."*

A 67-year old Walmart worker got felony charges for stealing a box of Oreo cookies. Can you really get a felony charge for eating food in the store? How vindictive can Walmart be?

Not by according to the state of Indiana code.  I think the issue is that she talked to police and; "admitted she not only consumed Oreos she hadn’t paid for, but also took junk food from the company every week for four years.  Penny S. Winters, 63, was also caught on video during her evening shift eating the popular sandwich cookies."

She was terminated by Wally-World.  It seems a bit of overkill by the prosecutor.  Sad.

It seems strange that the U.S. DHS is releasing illegals because of lack of funding, but purchasing 2700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles.

That is a very good point.  I wonder if there is a message to this purchase.

The 'message' to me is....

Release the illegals, more votes for the King (one way or another) or more 'troops' for the King.  The vehicles are necessary for civil disobedience.  Coming to a town near you...in the future.

Also, In my opinion, the DHS is entirely unnecessary.  Probably should be renamed the SS instead.

Maybe they're preparing for the uprising of all the "Patriot" groups that are forming around the country. And by "patriot" I mean domestic terrorist.

******
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a Montgomery, Ala.-based nonprofit that monitors hate groups and crimes, said in a letter to U.S. Attorney Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano that patriot groups now hold the potential for a wave of domestic terrorism. The groups overshadow the danger posed by more traditional hate groups -- neo-Nazis and others dedicated against blacks, Latinos, Catholics and Muslims, for example, the report found. The group's letter urged federal officials to create a new task force to assess federal resources devoted to the threat.

In October 1994, the law center wrote to then-Attorney General Janet Reno about the growing threat of domestic extremism. The Oklahoma City federal building was bombed six months later.

Patriot groups have been classified by the law center as hate organizations because their anti-government sentiment is almost always paired with racism, ranging from fear of everyday crime to a looming race war, said Mark Potok, the law center's chief hate group and hate crime investigator.

NJ Police Officer under investigation for punching a woman in the face. 

Police in New Jersey are investigating a video that appears to show an officer punch a woman in the face.

Cell phone video posted on YouTube shows a group of people fighting outside the Envy nightclub in Elizabeth.

At one point, an officer and a few others emerge from the crowd, and it appears the cop reaches back and punches a woman directly in the face.

Cuss warning:

Cops Go Free After Violently Beating Teen (Graphic Image)

"Organizations hoping to bury unpleasant or potentially controversial news traditionally release information late Friday, in the hope that many folks already in weekend mode miss the development. A classic example: Justice Department reps chose Friday at 6:30 p.m. to inform Alex Landau that they would not be charging the three Denver police officers who brutally beat him with federal civil rights violations. No surprise that Landau is incensed by this turn of events, as are numerous supporters. Look below for details, the lawsuit and more photos from after the incident."*

The officers who beat then 19-year old Alex Landau in 2009 after he declined a car search without a warrant will be going free. Is this fair? Is there really insufficient evidence?
