Police State

After Rodney King: Police Use of Force by Greg Meyer
 Some Los Angeles officials specifically predicted that baton beatings would be the result of taking out of routine use the most-used police tactics, commonly known as "chokeholds." A number of arrested suspects on whom the holds had been used, later died while in police custody during the late 1970s and early 1980s, when society found its streets knee-deep in PCP and cocaine.
America's Secret Police by Jim Hobson
 This document is based on evidence that has been collected from victim testimonies, intelligence sources, information databases, and personal observations. After compiling the information, we must conclude that the U.S. Government is on a small scale torturing, experimenting upon, and murdering innocent men, women, and children with ultrasonic and infrasonic weapons on American soil.
Best Practices for Seizing Electronic Evidence by Secret Service
 As computers and related storage and communication devices proliferate in our society, so does the use of those devices in conducting criminal activities. Technology is employed by criminals as a means of communication, a tool for theft and extortion, and a repository to hide incriminating evidence or contraband materials. Law enforcement officers must possess up-to-date knowledge and equipment to effectively investigate today's criminal activity. The law enforcement community is challenged by the task of identifying, investigating and prosecuting individuals and organizations that use these and other emerging technologies to support their illicit operations.
Cesspool of Pseudoscience: Your Local Police by David Mills
 The term "Police Science" is, in reality, an oxymoron: a self-contained and flagrant contradiction in terms. Police investigators are no more scientific in their pursuit of criminal suspects than are astrologers in their pursuit of futuristic visions.
Collecting Evidence at Clandestine Laboratories by Michael S. McCampbell
 The manufacturing process for methamphetamine is often crude, uncontrolled and extremely dangerous. There are currently two prevalent methods of “cooking” methamphetamine in the U.S.: the ephedrine reduction method and the “Nazi” method (labeled as such because of the belief that it was invented by the Nazis in World War II).
Cruel and Inhumane Treatment at Virginia Supermaximum Prisons by Amnesty Int'l
 Prisoners in Wallens Ridge State Prison are routinely abused with electro-shock stun guns, subjected to racial verbal abuse by guards, fired on with painful pellet guns, and placed unnecessarily in five point restraints. WRSP, opened in April 1999, is one of two "supermaximum" security prisons in Virginia, where prisoners are subjected to the highest levels of security control.
DARE: Selecting the Right Officer by Philip W. Tribuzio
 The Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program, D.A.R.E., may be one of the most successful undertakings in the history of modern law enforcement. This highly visible program, developed by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Unified Schools, has become a primary tool to teach children how to resist using drugs. The business community and local governments have also recognized the value of D.A.R.E. and continue to provide financial support to operate this valuable program.
Drug Use and The Internet by U.S. Department of Justice
 Advocates of an expanded freedom of expression are purveyors of information with yet another agenda. These individuals and groups publish information on the Internet to push the boundaries of self-expression and the First Amendment. The information they provide may induce minors and young adults to break drug laws or to become a danger to themselves or to others by abusing illegal drugs.
Emergency Command Posts and the Continuity of Government
 The Mount Weather site is an unacknowledged continuity of government (CoG) facility operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The 200,000-square-foot (18,600-square-meter) facility, with an estimated floor space of three times that amount, also houses FEMA's National Emergency Coordinating Center, which operates twenty-four hours a day, tracking worldwide disasters, both natural and manmade.

Homeland Security, Homeland Profits by Wayne Madsen
 A phalanx of software companies, consultants, and defense contractors stand to reap billions of dollars over the next few years by selling surveillance and information-gathering systems to government agencies and the private sector.
Inmate Transfers to Out of State Private Prisons by Lehn Fitzgerald
 Nickel observed that staff members did not react when inmates flashed gang signs in front of them. In addition, a staff member did not respond when an inmate displayed his ID card that had gang-colored beads hanging off of it. Nickel also reported that inmates were allowed to hold gang meetings in their cells.
KPNews.com's English-language translation
 KPNews.com's English-language translation of the tape released by Oleksandr Moroz allegedly linking President Leonid Kuchma (Ukraine) in the disappearance of journalist Georgy Gongadze.
Law Enforcement and the Americans With Disabilities Act by Jeffrey Higginbotham
 On July 26, 1990, President Bush signed the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which poses new challenges for law enforcement administrators. The ADA, which was enacted to eliminate discrimination against individuals with disabilities, provides protection against employment discrimination to individuals who are disabled but nonetheless able to work.
Meet the Berkley Gestapo by Prometheus
 How many police officers does it take to stop an unarmed pedestrian on the streets of Berkley, Michigan at 3:00 on a Tuesday morning?
Militarized Law Enforcement: The Drug War's Deadly Fruit by David B. Kopel
 One of the most significant trends of law enforcement in the last twenty fifteen years has been militarization. That militarization is the direct result of the drug war, and it is the direct cause of the deaths of Enrique Hernandez, Donald Scott, and other innocents—and of assaults on the persons and property of many more innocents.
Moving Toward A Police State (Or Have We Arrived?) by Michael Ratner
 The domestic consequences of the war on terrorism include massive arrests and interrogation of immigrants, the possible use of torture to obtain information, the creation of a special new cabinet office of Homeland Security and the passage of legislation granting intelligence and law enforcement agencies much broader powers to intrude into the private lives of Americans.
NYPD's APPL Program: A New Partnership by Anthony M. Voelker
 In the past decade, both law enforcement and private security professionals have arrived at the same conclusion: The police cannot provide all the protection and enforcement necessary to maintain safe and orderly communities. There are increasingly fewer police resources to handle an ever-increasing demand for services.
No Freedom in Freedom Plaza by Shawna Bader
 The unjust, undemocratic, and illegal arrests of protestors, supporters and observers in Freedom Plaza on Friday, Sept 27 are a perfect and terrifying example of how dissent is being squashed in the post-September 11 United States.
Non-Lethal Weapons Research in the US: Calmatives and Malodorants by Sunshine Project
 Militaries and domestic law enforcement agencies in the United States and elsewhere are closely following this research and, in some instances, participating. The non-lethal weapons research detailed here raises questions about protection of civil liberties, particularly freedoms of thought and expression.
Police Management by James D. Sewell
 In small police departments, it is usually decisions regarding personnel that are the most difficult and emotionally distressing. Years of law enforcement training prepare administrators for tactical and strategic problems and operational decisions. As a result, many police chiefs find that making life-or-death decisions is easier than initiating procedures that could cost officers their rank, salary, or job.
Police Practices: Mobile Command Posts by Police Chief Frank T. Hutson and Fire Chief Robert B. Walker
 As service providers, law enforcement agencies respond to a broad range of emergency situations--from street crimes to sexual assaults, from traffic accidents to domestic disturbances. As a rule, most emergencies are handled by one or more responding units, generally in their own patrol districts.
Police Practices: The Nelson-Denny Experiment by Lt. Samuel T. Ragland
 The Arizona Law Enforcement Training Academy (ALETA) provides statewide law enforcement basic training to officers who have no other basic training available to them. Over 100 agencies train their cadets at ALETA.
Police Tactics and How To Defeat Them
 The local, state and federal governments have unlimited tax dollars to use to control crowds at demonstrations and insurrections. We must develop ways to combat these technologies, and although we are in reality in a fight against technology, it would be naive to think we can use spears against these maniacs.
Prison Labor, Slavery and Capitalism in Historical Perspective by Stephen Hartnett
 Shakaís comparison of contemporary prison labor and antebellum slavery may seem hyperbolic or even melodramatic, but in fact Shaka is historically accurate and politically astute in linking prison, labor and slavery. This is perhaps the most productive means of thinking about the role of what I call "the correctional-industrial complex."
Private Sector Involvement in Australian Corrections by David Belton
 The history of private sector involvement in corrections is unbelievably bleak, a well-documented tale of inmate abuse and political corruption. In many instances, private contractors worked inmates to death, beat or killed them for minor rule infractions, and/or failed to provide inmates with the quality and quantity of life's necessities (food, clothing, shelter) specified in their often meticulously drafted contracts.
Richmond Under Lockdown: City Jail as a Component in the Police State by Anonymous
 Money sent to inmates is frequently stolen by jail guards. Inmates may not receive reading materials unless it is sent directly from a publisher. Inmates may not receive mail contain- ing paper clips, staples or polaroid snapshots on the grounds that these items are "dangerous weapons". Inmated cannot sleep in unmade beds during the daytime. Smoking is not allowed either. It is clear that such petty regulations are an example of the use of bureaucratic overkill as a means of aggravating and harassing inmates and as a form of psychological torture.

Shawnee Unit - A Control Unit For Women by Silvia Baraldini
 The history of the use of control units against women, including the current federal incarnation, the Shawnee Unit at Marianna, Florida, was ignored. A false picture was projected - that women are exempt from placement in control units; that Shawnee is not a control unit because it does not use the same physical brutality as men's control units.
Surveillance Recognition by U.S. Dept. of State
 There are basically three forms of surveillance: foot, vehicle, and stationary (generally categorized as either mobile or static). A brief description of the most common techniques used for each of these forms and methods for detecting each one.
The 14 Defining Characteristics Of Fascism by Vindicatus
 This is the original text of a previously submitted article called "American Fascism" by Eric John. Following the spirit of Eric's fabrication I will expound on these 14 points.
The 3 Myths Of Law Enforcement by A. Shemonia
 When their credibility comes into question or if their authority is questioned by some belligerent taxpayer, these are the three myths used most often used by police to justify their parasitic existence:
The CCA & Prison Realty Trust Story
 Investors are angry that PZN lost its REIT status and the related dividend; they are filing class actions suits against Prison Realty for false claims on Securities and Exchange Commission documents. Specifically, they are concerned about the non-disclosure of payments by PZN to CCA.
The Cold War of the '90's by Jalil Bottom
 Americans' fear of crime is creating a new version of the old military-industrial complex, an infrastructure born amid political rhetoric and a shower of federal, state and local dollars. As they did in the Eisenhower era, politicians are trying to outdo each other in standing up to the common enemy;
The Commercialization of Justice by Marlyce Nuzum
 Increasingly, criminal justice is about commerce and profit, with policy being driven by business, political and private interests. To continue ignoring the economic context in which criminal justice occurs and the corresponding policy implications is politically naive and socially irresponsible.
The Human Aversion to Killing and the Lie of "Non-Lethal" Weapons
 To understand the attraction of what are now being popularly referred to as “non-lethal weapons,” it is helpful to understand the basic aversion to killing that is biologically hard-wired into most of the advanced life forms on this planet.
The Police State: Crime and Cops in Amerika by MC5 & MC11
 Amerika's ruling class defines "crime" as anything that may threaten its hold on power. Anyone attempting to rectify the vast income inequalities inherent in the capitalist system (through means not sanctioned by the bourgeoisie) is locked up. Anyone not respecting the god-given "right" to private property is locked up.
Top 10 Signs You Are Being Set Up By An Undercover Cop by Norma Jean Almodovar
 He asks you to get undressed but he won't. If you are being videotaped, he will not undress for you so if he acts shy but he wants to see you get naked, refuse to unless he does first. Don't even touch him until he is completely naked.
USA Patriot Act Boosts Government Powers by ACLU
 Give the Attorney General and the Secretary of State the power to designate domestic groups as terrorist organizations and deport any non-citizen who belongs to them.
Urban Transportation Security by Robert W. Dart
 Many citizens perceive that their personal safety is endangered on urban transit systems because they believe that dangerous levels of crime exist in subways. For many riders, descending into the noisy, disorienting subterranean world of rapid transit increases their fear of crime.
