[WATCH] Video Surfaces of Milton-Freewater Police Misconduct Case


MILTON-FREEWATER, Ore. – Video surveillance has surfaced regarding a Milton-Freewater police misconduct case we first told you about last year.

Action News received video surveillance of the incident where authorities said a Milton-Freewater cop injured a defenseless man wearing handcuffs sending him to the hospital with serious injuries.

A concerned citizen shared the surveillance video with Action News showing the former Milton-Freewater police officer assaulting a suspect in cuffs. We want to warn our viewers that some might find this video graphic.

Oregon State Police revealed Officer Brian Scott arrested 46-year-old Jeffery Allen Fields for theft and took him to the Milton-Freewater police station for processing.

In the video you can see Officer Scott leading the suspect into the Milton-Freewater police department.

While walking the handcuffed arrestee inside the building, the video shows Scott pushing him in the back, causing him to hit his head into a concrete wall, according to detectives.

The video continues for 10 minutes, showing the arrestee bleeding from the head and Officer Scott returns with paper towels to hold against Fields’ wounds. Paramedics rushed Fields to the hospital for scalp and vertebrae injuries.

This surveillance video comes out a year after Scott first appeared in court, when police arrested him for second-degree assault and official misconduct.

Former Police Chief and Constable Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison For Murder


BENTONVILLE, Arkansas — A former police chief and constable was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he admitted he shot a man to death.

Grant Hardin, 48, of Garfield pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree murder. He originally was charged with capital murder, but prosecutors reduced the charge under a plea agreement Benton County Prosecutor Nathan Smith reached with Shane Wilkinson, Hardin’s attorney.

James Appleton, 59, of Gateway was shot in the head while he sat in his parked pickup Feb. 23, according to court documents.

Wilkinson waived a scheduled suppression hearing.

Appleton’s family and friends filled at least four rows in the courtroom. Appleton’s son read a victim impact statement and described the impact the murder had on their family.

Gateway Mayor Andrew Tillman, Appleton’s brother-in-law, was on the phone with him when he was shot, according to court documents.

A witness told deputies he saw a white car behind Appleton’s pickup, according the probable cause affidavit. The man said he saw the driver of the car and said he heard a loud bang after he passed the two vehicles, according to court documents. The man said he turned around and saw Appleton’s body, according to the affidavit.

The man told police the driver of the car was Hardin, according to court documents. The man said he has known Hardin all of his life and Hardin worked for the Gateway Police Department, according to the affidavit.

Benton County Circuit Judge Robin Green accepted the plea agreement and Hardin’s guilty plea.

Hardin was sentenced to 30 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction. He must serve at least 21 years in prison before he will be eligible for parole. He must abide by a suspended sentenced agreement for 10 years after his release from prison.

[WATCH] Police Criticised After Officer Filmed “Deliberately” Kneeing Suspect Five Times


Mobile phone footage has emerged showing a police officer appearing to deliberately knee a suspect five times as his colleagues pinned him to the ground.

Steven Walker was on his way home from work last Thursday when police descended on a suspected armed robbery at a local shop in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

The shocked father-of-two decided to record the incident after about six officers arrived at the scene to apprehend the three male suspects.

The video shows three officers attempting to hold down one suspect, while the other two men lay supervised on the floor.

The struggling suspect can be heard shouting in pain “my arm” as one policeman is seen forcing his knee in to him.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed it was aware of the video circulating on social media, however said it was yet to receive a formal complaint.

Mr Walker, who is from Bolton has criticised the force, branding it “police brutality”.

He said: “One of the lads was covered in blood and the three lads were initially apprehended but that force was just excessive.

Police criticised after being filmed kneeing a suspect five times.
Picture: Caters
“When that other officer started kneeing him in the head I just couldn’t believe it.

“The guy on the floor was shouting things like ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe’.

“Now, I know the police have a job to do and people can get a bit ‘pasty’, but punching someone and kneeing them five times is just mad.”

A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: “We have been made aware of a video circulating on social media and are currently reviewing the footage, while also speaking to response officers who attended the incident to get a full picture of the circumstances.

[WATCH] Michigan Police Officer Known as Robocop Convicted in Beating of Floyd Dent


After more than a decade of accusations of abusing citizens, falsifying reports and planting drugs and weapons, the Michigan police officer known as Robocop was convicted today, putting an end to his less than stellar law enforcement career.

And it was only because the incident was captured on dash cam video.

William Melendez, who was fired from the Inkster Police Department in April after a dash cam video surfaced showing him pull over and beat a man named Floyd Dent, was found guilty of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and of misconduct in office.

The jury cleared him of a charge of assault by strangulation. He will be sentenced December 3 and faces up to ten years in prison.

He will remain incarcerated until then, a decision that prompted Robocop’s wife to storm out of the courtroom in a huff, but she was brought back in and scorned by the judge.

Melendez-in-armorWiliam “Robocop” Melendez
Dent, the 57-year-old veteran Ford Motor Company worker, did not attend the trial out of fear.

But two dozen Wayne County sheriff’s deputies along with a police dog were in attendance.

Our first impression was that they were there in support of Melendez as cops tend to pack the courtrooms in support of cops on trial.

But Melendez, a former Detroit police officer, never worked for the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.

One of Dent’s attorneys, Nick Bennett, cleared up the confusion in a Facebook message interview with Photography is Not a Crime.

They bring in extra deputies when verdicts are being read if it is a high profile case, capital case, or cases where there is potential for the victim and/or defendants families to get rowdy when the verdict is read. I had a murder trial last year and they had even more deputies.
Bennett emphasized that he did not believe the deputies cared one way or another if Robocop was convicted.

[WATCH] Hospital Refuses to Perform Life-Saving Kidney Transplant on Toddler Until Father Completes Parole


A Georgia hospital is refusing to perform a life-saving kidney transplant on a 2-year-old boy born without kidneys because his father – the only donor match – violated parole.

The toddler’s father, Anthony Dickerson, 26, has had several run-ins with law enforcement, including his latest arrest in September on weapons and forgery charges.

But says his mistakes shouldn’t impact his son’s chances at having a normal chance at life.

Little A.J.’s transplant surgery was scheduled for October 3 at Emory University Hospital but then the hospital learned his father was arrested the previous month, prompting them to cancel the surgery.

Now they are saying they will “re-evaulate” the surgery in January 2018, but only if Dickerson can provide written proof he completed probation.

But the boy may not survive until January, his mother told local media. He not only also needs bladder surgery, he suffered a stroke two months ago.

“What do he got to do with the mistakes I made? Nothing,” Dickerson said in an interview with wfmynews2.

A.J.’s mother, Carmella Burgess, says the violation shouldn’t stop the donation process, especially if Dickerson is healthy.

“Two steps closer to giving him a kidney and we got shut down, basically,” Burgess said.

“They’re making this about dad,” she said. “It’s not about dad. It’s about our son.”

“We will re-evaluate Mr. Dickerson in January 2018 after receipt of this completed documentation,” a hospital representative wrote in a letter to A.J.’s parents.

Emory spokeswoman, Janet Christenbury, stated the hospital is committed to the highest quality of care for its patients, but would not elaborate as to who made the decision not to proceed with the surgery.

“Because of privacy regulations and respect for patient confidentiality, we cannot share specific information about our patients,” she said.

WATCH: Cops Respond to Bank Robber by Shooting His Hostage 9 Times

hostagehostage

Eufaula, OK — A woman who was shot 9 times by police while she was being held as a hostage at a bank in Eufaula, Oklahoma, is now seeking compensation for the horrific attack that left her disabled.

Julie Huff was a customer at the Bank of Eufaula on Jan. 21, 2016, when a robber entered and took her hostage. Within 63 seconds of entering the building, Cedric Norris shot and killed Randy Peterson the bank’s president, and shot and wounded a bank teller who refused to go with him as his hostage.

Norris then turned to Huff and took her as a hostage. He forced her into an SUV, which police pursued in a chase. After police “disabled the vehicle,” Huff exited the car and ran into a nearby field, while Norris chased her and exchanged gunfire with officers, according to a report from Chickasha News.

While some police officers are cautious about firing at a suspect who is near an innocent hostage, the Oklahoma officers continued to fire bullets in Norris’ direction, even when he caught up to Huff, grabbed her around the neck, and used her as a human shield.

In a statement, Huff’s attorneys noted that even though police knew Huff was an innocent hostage, they shot intentionally and shot her numerous times with multiple weapons.

“The Law Enforcement officers knew Ms. Huff was an innocent hostage yet they deliberately shot her nine times. Not one of the nine bullets which hit Ms. Huff came from the kidnapper. All the bullets came from the law enforcement officers—one of whom shot her with an AR-15.”

The statement also criticized the Bank of Eufaula for failing “to have an armed security guard, which is in violation of proper banking standards.” It claimed that the bank “had multiple, unmonitored entrances and exits, which encouraged this armed robbery.”

The statement from Huff’s attorney’s concluded that she “was severely injured and has undergone many surgeries.” As a result, “Ms. Huff feels very lucky to be alive, but she has been permanently scarred and injured as a result of the failures of the Bank of Eufaula and the reckless and careless actions of law enforcement.”

Not only did law enforcement blatantly choose not to protect Huff during the incident, they also failed to protect the public from the threat posed by Cedric Norris. According to a report from the Associated Press, Norris had an extensive history of carrying out armed robberies, and he had been released from a Texas prison despite having a 60-year sentence to serve in Oklahoma for robbery convictions in Tulsa and Creek counties.”

According to prosecutors in Creek County, Norris’ early release was a mistake that resulted from “miscommunication between Texas and Oklahoma.” However, his newfound freedom did not stop his robbery streak, and the getaway car he used to kidnap Huff was reportedly one he stole during another “violent robbery in Texas.”

While Norris was killed in the shootout with police, it remains to be seen whether any of the officers who were responsible for the horrific shooting that left Julie Huff disabled for the rest of her life will ever be held accountable for their actions.

This is not the first time police officers in Oklahoma have been featured for their blatant misconduct. In a recent case, officers in Tulsa were caught on video commending each other on their use of force in the arrest of a suspect—even though the person they put in handcuffs was an innocent man they beat to a bloody pulp, after trespassing on his property.

It is also not the first time police have shot an innocent hostage.

As TFTP reported, On Feb 7, 2014, Matthew Serbus led police on a dangerous high-speed chase before crashing his car and taking Dawn Pfister as a hostage. Police would shoot Serbus as he held a knife to Pfister, then, walk up to Pfister and kill her too. The entire incident was recorded on a police dashcam.

Mainstream Media Just Admitted Hollywood Infested With “Child Sex Trafficking”

hollywoodhollywood

Harvey Weinstein’s sacrifice by the elite through revealing his alleged rampant sexual abuse has appeared to have removed the stigma from those who expose child sex trafficking. Weinstein’s ousting seems to have served as a catalyst for the mainstream media to finally cover the real-life horror movie that is Hollywood sex abuse.

While many brave actresses and actors have come forward with allegations of their abuse by adults, some of those inside the industry are calling out the horrifying reality of rampant child sex trafficking that takes place behind the silver screen.

Although TFTP has faithfully exposed this depraved group of Hollywood elite and politicians who deal in the lives of children for years, even the mainstream media is being forced to cover it now. One such outlet to jump on the expose Hollywood train is the FOX News Channel whose hot-tempered pundit, Judge Jeanine Pirro went on a massive—albeit entirely partisan—rant about the powers that be and their nature to ignore and also facilitate Hollywood’s sick addiction.

Starting her rant, Pirro laid into Clinton and how she is using this Weinstein scandal to use Trump—who said he could just walk up to women and grab them in the genitalia—as a distraction from her husbands years of sex abuse scandal. Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein have long been in bed together, and, as TFTP reported, Weinstein actually paid for some of Clinton’s defense when he was dealing with his own sexual abuse cases.

Pirro then said, in regards to the massive government coverup and whitewashing of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, “Were you elected president, you could’ve done for your friend Harvey what your husband Bill did for his friend, the Palm Beach billionaire, convicted serial pedophile predator, Jefferey Epstein, by getting the Department of Justice, the Feds to intercede, take those child rape cases from the Florida DA where Epstein was facing hard time to federal easy street where he quickly got home monitoring.”

Everything Pirro said above was, indeed, factual. However, it is only half of the story. Because FOX News refuses to report on the corruption of the right, Pirro failed to mention Trump’s ties to Epstein as well.

Epstein is a convicted child molester and sexually abused no less than 40 underage girls. Despite this fact, Alexander Acosta protected him while serving as a U.S. Attorney in Florida under both Bush and Obama.

At the time, prosecutors from Acosta’s office, working with the FBI and documented for the court, found that, through assistance from several female assistants, Epstein “would recruit underage females to travel to his home in Palm Beach to engage in lewd conduct in exchange for money … Some went there as much as 100 times or more. Some of the women’s conduct was limited to performing a topless or nude massage while Mr. Epstein masturbated himself. For other women, the conduct escalated to full sexual intercourse.”

Rather than the minimum ten-year sentence the billionaire pedophile faced, Acosta’s arrangement with Epstein’s lawyers landed a part-time, eight hours per day county jail term for a scant 13 months in a club med prison—a travesty of justice indeed.

These are undisputed facts — yet, in April, Trump still appointed Acosta as his Secretary of Labor.

Acosta’s appointment should come as no surprise given Trump’s outspoken praise for Epstein, including referring to the convicted pedophile as a “terrific guy,” he is “fun to be with,” and “he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Pedophilia among the elite knows no party lines and shame on FOX for failing to mention the above facts as well. However, as the rant continued, Pirro got into much heavier detail.

“And by the way — it is not over yet, folks. There’s more coming. It is not just adult women, it is human trafficking, it is child sex trafficking, it is real pedophilia, in a town where there are no rules. Where the truth is stranger than fiction, and where fiction is based on reality. 

It is time for the Dept. of Justice to get their act in gear, start a federal criminal investigation into Harvey Weinstein, his ongoing criminal activity, that no doubt has crossed state lines and continents.”

As long as we continue to let politics keep us at each other’s throats, the abuse will continue. As long as people keep pretending that it’s only the Democrats in Hollywood who traffick and abuse children, the abuse will continue.

The good news is that as more victims come forward and as more horrifying details emerge, America and the rest of the world will see the vile men and women behind the curtain who perpetuate, not just a false reality on the silver screen, but who keep citizens hypnotized and divided through journalism and politics too.

Putin Unveils ‘CryptoRuble’ as Assange Thanks US Gov’t Corruption for 50,000% Return on Bitcoin

bitcoinbitcoin

Over the weekend, WikiLeak’s Julian Assange took to social media to give his “deepest thanks to the US government, Senator McCain and Senator Lieberman for pushing Visa, MasterCard, Paypal… et al, into erecting an illegal banking blockade against @WikiLeaks starting in 2010.”

In April 2010, WikiLeaks released footage from a Baghdad airstrike in July 2010 in which revealed Iraqi journalists and others being brutally slaughtered by American forces in what became know as Collateral Murder. Additionally, 2010 releases by WikiLeaks also included the Afghan War Diary and the Iraq War Logs.

Following the release of the explosive secret government documents related to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq – which revealed the wars in all their barbarity — Sen. John McCain and Sen. Joe Lieberman, both known war party/deep state commodities, led a bipartisan effort to cut the flow of donations to WikiLeaks by forcing ‘traditional’ payment systems to block them and disallow donations to the transparency activist government watchdog group.

Subsequently, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks became early adopters of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, as a means of bypassing the US government’s financial blockade meant to shut down all avenues of public donations to WikiLeaks.

With the value of Bitcoin hitting $5,746.51, Assange took the opportunity to thank the villainous forces in their failed attempt to financially strangle WikiLeaks out of existence, as it precipitated the group’s initial 2010 investment into Bitcoin, and a whopping 50,000 percent return on investment, according to his tweet.

The Wikileaks founder posted his comment on Twitter, after a stunning week of price jumps in the cryptocurrency’s value. The tweet was accompanied by a chart of the value of Bitcoin.

It’s clear that Assange understands the value of having a peer-to-peer based system that bypasses governmental control and regulation, and allows for maximum individual control over one’s own financial instruments – with minimal outside interference or costs.

Assange has been living as a political refugee in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012.

It seems clear that the advent of blockchain distributed ledger technology, and the ability of the technology to remove the “gatekeepers” of industry and revolutionize numerous systems – from money transactions, to contracts, voting and more – is not lost on Assange as in many ways he leads a parallel fight in regards to freeing information from the clutches of societal gatekeepers.

Ironically, the US government forced WikiLeaks into Bitcoin investing as a means of circumventing the financial blockade they attempted to enforce on the whistleblowing group, only to have them reap a windfall due to the dramatic rise in the demand for the leading cryptocurrency.

Interestingly, Russia’s development bank, VEB, and several Russian state ministries are reportedly teaming up to develop blockchain technology. Russia plans to create a fully encrypted, distributed, inexpensive payments system that has no dependence upon Western banking institutions, SWIFT, or the U.S. government to move money across the world.

Minister of Communications, Nikolay Nikiforov, confirmed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has officially stated that Russia will issue its own ‘CryptoRuble’ during a closed-door meeting in Moscow, according to local news sources.

Aside from utilizing the blockchain technology, the system is in no way connected to Bitcoin, which is just another digital token. The blockchain technology (now often referred to as distributed ledger technology, or DLT) is a platform that can facilitate a wide variety of transfers — potentially including the new Russian-state cryptocurrency backed by gold.

According to a report by the Bitcoin-focused website CoinTelegraph:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has officially stated that Russia will issue its own ‘CryptoRuble’ at a closed door meeting in Moscow, according to local news sources.
The news broke through Minister of Communications Nikolay Nikiforov.

 

According to the official, the state issued cryptocurrency cannot be mined and will be issued and controlled and maintained only by the authorities.

 

The CryptoRubles can be exchanged for regular Rubles at any time, though if the holder is unable to explain where the CryptoRubles came from, a 13 percent tax will be levied.
The same tax will be applied to any earned difference between the price of the purchase of the token and the price of the sale.

“I confidently declare that we run CryptoRuble for one simple reason: if we do not, then after 2 months our neighbors in the EurAsEC will,” Nikiforov said.

Although the announcement marks Russia’s entrance to the cryptocurrency world, it is no affirmation of Bitcoin or any other decentralized cryptocurrency. In fact, Russia recently called for a complete ban on all cryptocurrencies within Russia.

It seems as though Putin, while appreciating the idea of a blockchain based currency, would like Russia to have complete control of the digital currency being used and traded in Russia.
