A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home

Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??

Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.

^^^^^

Reblogging for that bit about The NRA.

Texas gives you the right to gun down an intruder in your home. In my opinion, an unidentified cop isn’t a cop. If they do not display their identification, if they do not identify themselves, they are not acting as police and should not be afforded the special protections that we bafflingly provide them. This man didn’t shoot a police officer. He shot an invader in his home.  
You can’t tell a person that they can shoot anyone who breaks into their house and then punish them for doing that because the person they shot had a job they didn’t mention during the break-in.
I don’t agree with castle doctrine or stand your ground, but if it is on the books, it should apply across the board. Under Texas law, you can shoot someone invading your home. Thus, as far as Texas law is concerned, that cop deserved to die and this man deserves to go free.
I’d hope something like this would force changes to a more sane system, but why change things when you can just bend the law and punish people for doing legal things because a the wrong kind of criminal caught a bullet.

We’re all playthings to the economic system in this testament to the futility of consumerism. Actually, it’s just a poorly-explained narrative about the economics of manufacturing meant for children, but who’s keeping track? Not us.

Don’t ever fucking try to tell me that white people aren’t targeted and discriminated against for the color of their skin. Don’t ever try to fucking say that ANYONE has never been discriminated against. If you want fucking justice, then ACT on that justice.

HI UM NOPE
This headline is the deformed offspring of lies, bad reporting, and a Getty Image from 2012 taken after a man was beaten by police at the Occupy Wall Street protests.
The article cites no sources and reads like a Facebook Aunt telling a story they heard from their son’s buddy Taylor, most likely because it’s a poorly-paraphrased version of this also false article that calls itself ”White Man Cold-Cocked By Vicious Ferguson Mob In Blatant Racist Attack.” Money quote from the article:

“Most recently, a man was simply standing outside of a St. Louis McDonald’s where he was surrounded by a group of black man who punched the man in the face for no reason whatsoever. Seemingly unprovoked, the group intentionally targeted this man for nothing more than his skin color in a backwards attempt at justice for Mike Brown.”

Ah, yes, the classic “for no reason whatsoever” immediately followed by “for nothing more than his skin color in a backwards attempt at justice for Mike Brown” trick. That old reporting chestnut.
Anyway. The tale of an entire mob attacking this man was
followed up by showing these tweets, where the story originated:

This is all from the same article, mind you. There’s a paragraph describing a mob of black men attacking this white guy, and then they show the actual source describing a single black man punching the guy in the face once. Also? The Knockout Game doesn’t exist.
ALSO also?

So really, “Black Man Punches White Man In Face, Other Black Men Try To Apprehend Black Man Who Punched White Man In Face,” because Ferguson’s hero-to-asshole ratio is actually through the fucking roof.
And yet…

Anyway. It sucks that the guy got punched a couple weeks ago, but if you’re going to lie about it, try being just so much better at lying.

Cracked shouldn’t be the “journalists” catching this kind of thing. If you read something that sounds outrageous but tickles that part of your brain that wants it to be true, there’s a good chance it’s made up specifically to do that tickling. Take twenty minutes to research it before sharing or you sound like an idiot.

We can de-bullshit you on this kind of stuff but honestly it’s getting exhausting.

My Christian mom has a master’s degree and she could kick the literary shit out of you. 

My Christian girlfriend would like to have a word with you.

You know how if you can’t point to the lunatic in your own group its probably you? I’m pointing at Onision. That group being atheists, as I’m certainly not a vegan.
This sort of thought process isn’t helpful on multiple levels. It’s alienating and hateful on the one, but it also misunderstands the nature of religion and its ties to cognitive dissonance. Incredibly bright people routinely believe in very silly and nonsensical things: faeries, lucky charms, all manner of spiritualism and magic, conspiracy theories, religion, Ayn Rand, etc. 
To conflate it with a lack of intelligence is to willfully ignore much of its potency and power.

The pattern is pretty clear because it’s the same impulse in each. The headlines are designed to soothe the worries of the public. The narritive reads like this:The school shooter, the white male on a rampage, is an aberration, something unpredictable and terrifying but ultimately unpreventable. “There’s no way we could have known, and certainly no way we could stop it, so why discuss policy changes around guns, early warnings, social attitudes, etc.”

The other side of the coin says “don’t worry about it, the victim wasn’t “innocent” or any such thing, so don’t discuss policy changes around institutional racism, police brutality, use of force and the exploitation of the poor and disenfranchised.” 

There’s one message here: It isn’t possible to change things for the better, just live with it. Accept it.

When will they learn

This shit ain’t funny at all. I don’t know why these white dudes think it’s okay to walk up to people, blatantly insult them, then think nothing should happen. Then people look at the Black folks in the vids like THEY’RE wrong.

I don’t see how this is a prank…if getting punched is a prank then Manny pacquiao is the funniest man on the planet

surely a prank is supposed to make everyone laugh when it’s over. even the victim? regardless of what these twats are labelling it as, these poor lads still go home having experienced yet another racist verbal attack on them when they were just innocently living their lives.

fuckin dickwads.

do we REALLY expect anything less idiotic from something called BROPRANKSTV though

You can flag their channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/BroPranksTV/about (you have to be logged in to YouTube.)

The little flag in the bottom left. Flag them for “hate speech against a protected group” and unfortunately not also “Just being a complete asshole.”

Also, please don’t watch any of their videos…that will just get them more views and revenue.

I’ve seen awesome pranks before.

I’ve seen a guy be given a car rigged out with bond-esq gadgets that started going off while going through German customs.

I’ve seen a team of people materialize a fancy dinner layout out of nowhere for people on the street. 

I’ve seen a guy get convinced that the Porche he just bought was made from paper mache’ and riding lawnmower parts.

I’ve heard William Shatner recount how he stole Deforest Kelly’s English muffin out of the toaster every day for the entire run of Star Trek

Every photo in the house replaced by Nicholas Cage? Prank. Everything in the apartment wrapped in tin-foil? Prank. Fucking Rick-Rolling? Prank. Come out of your house and there’s just a mime there for no reason? Prank. Come out of your house and Nicholas Cage is wrapped in tin foil there there for no reason? EPIC PRANK.

This is punks saying racist shit to people to make them angry and then screaming ‘it’s just a joke.’ Well, if it’s a joke, its a shitty joke. Every beating these assholes get is deserved.

Turning point in #Ferguson? Police drew guns on Hip Hop artist/activist Talib Kweli & others, threatened to shoot last night. (Above) Kweli observes police were in rush formation BEFORE the water bottle was thrown at them. Major questions being raised about identity of individual who threw water bottle— possibly an agent provocateur, someone working for police to either invite riot or provide “justification” for police to assault a peaceful protest. (Left) Activist Phil Agnew, who is in Ferguson, says protesters are being depicted inaccurately. (Below) Example of an agent provocateur: notice the protester being tackled to the ground by police is wearing the EXACT SAME SHOES the police in uniform are wearing (?!?!) #mikebrown

A police officer in Kansas City, Mo. is facing internal review after he reportedly posted an inflammatory message on Facebook about the slain Ferguson, Mo. teen whose death has led to mounting chaos.
Televison station KCTV reported on Monday that Kansas City Police Department Officer Marc Catron posted a picture to his Facebook page along with this caption: “I’m sure young Michael Brown is innocent and just misunderstood. I’m sure he is a pillar of the Ferguson community.”
The photo depicted a black man with a wad of money in his mouth, pointing a gun at the camera. But the photo wasn’t of Brown at all. It was of a man in Oregon accused of murder.
Catron also reportedly posted about the violence that has erupted in Ferguson since the fatal police shooting. “Remember how white people rioted after OJ’s acquittal? Me neither,” Catron wrote, according to the television station.
*****
"Facing internal review"? This officer needs to be fired, immediately. Someone who is clearly a racist has no business policing a community.

No, see, when white people riot its because a football program is being threatened by investigations into the rape of children.
