Claiming to be acting under the bloody “banner of Liberty and Truth,” Jerad Miller and his wife Amanda, entered CiCi’s Pizza in Las Vegas on Sunday right before noon and executed two local policemen on their lunch break. Authorities say Jerad approached one officer while he was refilling his soda cup and shot him in the head from behind, before he and Amanda opened fire on his partner.

While patrons scrambled to safety, one of the shooters reportedly shouted that the “revolution” had begun. The duo then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, and covered them with cloth that featured the “Don’t tread on me” Gadsden flag, which has recently been adopted as a symbol of the tea party movement. The couple also left a swastika on one of the officers. 

Six days earlier, the right-wing shooter had posted a manifesto of sorts on Facebook where he announced “we must prepare for war.” Jerad Miller, who traveled to Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch this spring to join the militia protests against the federal government, declared that in order to “To stop this oppression, I fear, can only be accomplished with bloodshed.”

HORROR: Five Cops Beat Innocent, Unarmed Father to Death Outside Cinemas | Alternet

The panel discussing the beating death of Luiz Rodriguez, months before the choking death of Eric Garner, explain fight or flight response to attacks by multiple individuals on a person. It is not disrespect. It is a human response. The question begs, are we not human?

The incident, which was caught on video, began when Mrs. Nair Rodriguez got into an altercation with her 19-year-old daughter outside the Moore Warren Theatre in the early hours of February 15 and slapped her.  A bystander who witnessed the incident reported the event to police.
The mother-daughter disagreement had upset Mrs. Rodriguez so much that she had bolted for the family car.  Her husband, Luis followed her to calm her down when he was intercepted by five police who arrived on the scene.  However instead of confronting Nair, five cops took down her innocent husband Luis Rodriguez, beating, pepper spraying and pinning him on the road.

NYPD Cop Allegedly Steals $1,300 In Stop-And-Frisk, Pepper Sprays Victim | VIDEO | #OYRchallenge

“I believe that this officer made an assumption that any money Mr. Joye possessed was obtained illegally and therefore he would not report the theft. This assumption was wrong,” Marinelli said. “Mr. Joye is a hardworking taxpayer deserving respect.”The lawyer told the New York Post that his client had $1,300 on him so he could treat he and his wife to a night on the town in celebration of his 35th birthday.“

The cops thought they could just go in his pockets, take his money, mace him and leave,” Marinelli said. “If there wasn’t a video, nobody would believe this happened.”

Why Are NYPD Cops Setting Up Criminal Checkpoints For Kids Who Are Late to School?

“There are a number of issues, both morally and legally, with these truancy stops. The first question is why kids are stopped at all when they are obviously en route to school? Doesn’t stopping them only make them later for school? Isn’t tardiness something that’s best handled by schools, anyway? And, according to allthingsharlem, there is an officer at every school, so why aren’t in-school officials charged with dealing with this? Lastly, what happens to the data that cops collect from these kids? Is it maintained in some database? Why?”
