ZeroHedge – A Presidential Birth Certificate Controversy Leads To Clashes, Arrests, One Death – 6 January 2015

ZeroHedge It appears that only in less-developed nations do the people care about Presidential birth certificates. As GlobalVoices reports, clashes broke out between police and the opposition in Gabon stemming from questions about the legitimacy of President Ali Bongo Ondimba. The publication of a book disputing the origins of the President (claiming him to be Nigerian) has led opposition parties to challenge the authenticity of the birth certificate of the head of state which has sparked widespread protests. The protests left 1 dead and many injured and arrested. As local media note, “if the government continues to refuse to negotiate, things could go very wrong.”\

Illinois Man Sues City After Twitter Parody Of Mayor Led To Raid, Arrests – 14 June 2014

RT logoA man who was arrested and had his home raided because of his involvement with a Twitter account that parodied the mayor of Peoria, Illinois has filed a lawsuit against the city, claiming he was a victim of official misconduct.

Official documents obtained by local media outlets indicate that the Peoria police department raided the home of Jonathan Daniel, who was one of the people behind the fake Twitter account @Peoriamayor. The account included messages about sex and drugs, among other things, but never earned more than 50 followers. Daniel portrayed Peoria almost as a midwestern version of Rob Ford, although Twitter quickly suspended the account because it was not marked as a parody.

Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis described the account as “absolute filth” during an interview with CBS Chicago, but now finds himself among the Peoria authorities named in a suit from Daniel and the American Civil Liberties Union.

(NaturalNews) As predicted, it was only a matter of time before protesters at Occupy Wall Street (OWS) began experiencing the wrath of the new American police state which, as we wrote about previously, happened to receive a special cash infusion recently from Wall Street icon JPMorgan Chase (http://www.naturalnews.com/033779_J…).

A series of videos uploaded to YouTube show officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD) storming the streets, assaulting protesters, beating them with night sticks, and even bragging and laughing about the fact that they are getting to use their weapons against citizens. In one incident, reporters from My FOX New York were even assaulted with pepper spray and beaten with batons (http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/occ…).

In the first, shorter clip posted at the following link, you will see a high-ranking NYPD officer standing in the middle of a crowd swinging his baton at protesters that were apparently trying to cross a barrier. In the second, longer clip taken from a different angle, you see the same officer swatting his baton, as well as numerous other officers assaulting other protesters:http://gothamist.com/2011/10/05/vid…

In this clip, you will see an officer laughing and telling a fellow officer that “[his] little nightstick’s going to get a workout tonight,” referencing, of course, the confrontations with protesters that would soon follow:

Though disturbing, the state’s hostile response to these OWS protests is still relatively mild, especially compared to what took place at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York, for instance. At that event, cops stormed the streets in full riot gear, pushed back crowds with eery, NAZI-like street marches, trampled protesters with horses, blasted them with pepper spray and smoke bombs, and even fired long range acoustic device (LRAD) sound weapons at people on the streets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f144…).

And again in 2009, riot police and military personnel stormed the streets of Pittsburgh, Penn., during the G20 Summit. An InfoWars video shows a group of about 1,200 police state troops attacking over 300 Americans at one time, many of whom were not even part of the protests and had no idea that they was even taking place (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFYo…).

Americans must stop standing idly by while the police state takes full control

The police brutality exhibited at all these events is disturbing, and it is likely going to get worse in response to the ongoing OWS protests. But what is even more disturbing is the relative complacency of outside observers during almost every police state incident, many of whom can be seen watching police state thugs terrorizing their fellow man, but doing nothing.

If tyranny against free speech, the right to freely assemble, and all the other constitutional protections that are routinely violated is ever to cease, Americans are going to have to step forward and begin actively resist it. This includes developing a little more willingness and courage to help protect others from police attacks, especially when it is occurring right before their eyes.
