WATCH: Law Student Defends Herself from ‘Unlawful Arrest,’ Fights Back as Cops Attack Her

studentstudent

Arcata, CA – In a series of videos that have gone viral, a law student was apparently arrested for the crime of making a police officer mad, and the student’s refusal to immediately follow the officer’s demands led to a nasty fight.

The first video shows Samantha Alonso-Luna asking a plainclothes female officer which jail her friend Shea was going to. Shea was reportedly arrested for hanging out of the sunroof of a car at a nearby oyster festival fundraiser.

Luna was apparently intoxicated and a passenger in the front seat of a vehicle. Neither is a crime, but the officer claimed she was being rude and was inches away from being arrested for “public intoxication.”

After running Luna’s name and date of birth through the California Police database—which checks for outstanding warrants—the two got into an argument over Luna’s last name. Mexican-Americans often have two last names, which the young law student explained to the police officer. Her tone was quite belligerent but again, not illegal.

The officer, who apparently lost her patience, then ordered Luna out of the car, something the young female said she was not going to do. That is when things took a violent turn. No crime had yet been committed up to the point where Officer Janelle Jackson decided to jerk Luna out of the car.

Legally, she had committed no crime and should not have been detained but that is precisely what happened next. Luna resisted what she considered an unlawful arrest, having committed no crime—unless not giving both of your last names is a now crime.

The female officer was the one to strike first, slamming Luna’s head against the door as she jerked her out. The officer then started pulling Luna’s hair. Luna reached and grabbed a handful of the officer’s hair, refusing to let go. That action resulted in not only “resisting arrest” charges but also “assault on a police officer” charges as well.

The struggle continued with backup officers arriving. It is unclear if the first officer on the scene was telling the female officer to let go of Luna’s hair or telling Luna to let go of the officer’s hair. The escalation continued up to the point where the officer was practically begging her fellow officers to cut her hair to release Luna’s grip on her locks.

“I hate you guys…racist as fuck,” Luna can be heard screaming as she protested having three police officers manhandle her. “Stop resisting,” her friends can be heard saying.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, officers are trained to say “stop resisting” in an effort to win bystander support who often repeat the phrase. “You’re hurting me,” Luna cries at the end of the video.

The entire incident could have been avoided if Luna had followed the advice TFTP has given on multiple occasions. Hers is a great example of why citizens should refuse to talk to police. “I don’t answer questions,” is a valid response, and it allows citizens to exercise their Fifth Amendment rights.

What’s more, as TFTP has reported, a court case was decided last year by an appellate court in New Jersey which affirmed that citizens are allowed to defend themselves against police brutality.

The court’s decision involved the case of Darnell Reed, 33, who was beaten to a bloody pulp by officers during an arrest in 2013 in which he faced multiple charges. A jury found him not guilty on seven of the eight charges, with the only guilty charge being that of “resisting arrest.”

However, the appellate court ruled last year that Reed was denied a fair trial in that instance, as the jury had not been instructed to consider whether or not Reed had that right to defend himself against police brutality. In the videos above, it can be argued that Luna acted in a similar manner.

Samantha Alonso-Luna was eventually arrested and charged with giving a false identification, public intoxication, and resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. Luna is planning to sue.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

Foreign Federal Reserve (sic): In A State Of Perpetual Unlawful Manipulation

Jim Rickards

Jim Rickards explains the next event that will cause gold & silver to turn up again. Here’s the details…

June 12 is just three weeks away.

That’s when the Federal Open Market Committee, FOMC, the Fed’s interest rate policy arm, will in all likelihood raise interest rates another 0.25%, the seventh such rate increase since the “liftoff” in interest rates in December 2015.

The market is currently putting the odds of a rate hike at 95%.

This is the most aggressive tempo of rate hikes of any major central bank and puts U.S. policy rates significantly higher than those in the U.K., Japan or eurozone.

The issue for investors is whether the Fed is raising rates too aggressively considering the strength of the U.S. economy. Higher rates imply a stronger dollar, imported deflation and head winds to growth.

If the U.S. economy is on a firm footing, then the rate hikes may be appropriate, even necessary to head off inflation.

But if the U.S. economy is vulnerable, then the Fed’s actions could trigger a recession and stock market sell-off unless the Fed reverses course quickly.

My view is that the latter is more likely.

The Fed is tightening into weakness and will reverse course by pausing rate hikes later this year.

When that happens, important trends in stocks, bonds, currencies and gold will be thrown into reverse.

Outwardly, the Fed is sanguine about the prospects for monetary normalization. Both Janet Yellen and new Fed chair Jay Powell have said that interest rate hikes will be steady and gradual.

In practice, this means four rate hikes per year, 0.25% each, every March, June, September and December, with occasional pauses prompted by strong signs of disinflation, disorderly markets or diminution in job creation.

Lately job creation has been strong. And inflation has picked up. But it’s been spotty. The Fed still faces head winds in achieving its inflation goal.

The Fed is targeting a 2% annual inflation rate as measured by an index called PCE core year over year, reported monthly (with a one-month lag) by the Commerce Department.

That inflation index has not cooperated with the Fed’s wishes, and despite recent gains, hasn’t been able to hold consistently above 2%.

This has been a persistent trend and should be troubling to the Fed as it contemplates its next policy move at the FOMC meeting on June 12-13.

I’ve warned repeatedly that the Fed is tightening into weakness. The Atlanta Fed is projecting a 4.1% growth rate for the second quarter. But it’s known for its rosy projections that are almost always revised downwards once the data come in,

It had to lower its estimate of first quarter growth from over 5% to 1.8%. You can pretty much bet they’ll have to significantly reduce this projection as well.

The economy has been trapped in this low-growth cycle for years. The current economic recovery shows none of the 3% to 4% growth that previous recoveries have shown.

Meanwhile, the Fed is plowing ahead with its policy of quantitative tightening (QT), or cutting into its balance sheet.

Balance sheet normalization is even more on autopilot than rate hikes. Now, the Fed will not dump its securities holdings. Instead, it refrains from rolling over maturing securities. When the Treasury pays the Fed upon the maturity of a Treasury note, the money simply disappears.

This is the opposite of money printing — it’s money destruction. Instead of QE, we now have QT, or quantitative tightening. It’s like the Fed is burning money.

The Fed has been transparent about the rate at which they will run off their balance sheet this way, although transparency should not lead investors to complacency.

The Fed wants you to think that QT will not have any impact. Fed leadership speaks in code and has a word for this which you’ll hear called “background.” The Fed wants this to run on background.

Think of running on background like someone using a computer to access email while downloading something on background.

This is complete nonsense.

Contradictions coming from the Fed’s happy talk wants us to believe that QT is not a contractionary policy, but it is.

They’ve spent eight years saying that quantitative easing was stimulative. Now they want the public to believe that a change to quantitative tightening is not going to slow the economy.

They continue to push that conditions are sustainable when printing money, but when they make money disappear, it will not have any impact. This approach falls down on its face — and it will have a major impact.

My estimate is that every $500 billion of quantitative tightening could be equivalent to one .25 basis point rate hike. Some estimates are even higher, as much 2.0% per year. That’s not “background” noise. It’s rock music blaring in your ears.

For an economy addicted to cheap money, this is like going cold turkey.

The decision by the Fed to not purchase new bonds will therefore be just as detrimental to the growth of the economy as raising interest rates.

Meanwhile, retail sales, real incomes, auto sales and even labor force participation are all declining or showing weakness. Every important economic indicator shows that the U.S. economy can’t generate the growth the Fed would like.

Orchestrated dollar balloon

When you add in QT, we may very well be in a recession very soon.

Then the Fed will have to cut rates yet again. Then it’s back to QE. You could call that QE4 or QE1 part 2. Regardless, years of massive intervention has essentially trapped the Fed in a state of perpetual manipulation. More will follow.

But what about the stock market?

Despite February’s correction, the stock market remains overpriced for the combination of higher rates and slower growth.

The one thing to know about bubbles is they last longer than you think and they pop when you least expect it. Under such conditions, it’s usually when the last guy throws in the towel that the bubble pops.

February’s correction took some air out of the bubble, but the dynamic still applies. It just extended the timeline a bit.

But is this thing ready to pop for real?

Absolutely, and QT could be just the thing to do it. I would say the market is fundamentally set up for a fall.

When you throw in the fact that the Fed continues to have no idea what they’re doing and has taken a dangerous course, I expect a very severe stock market correction coming sooner than later.

The Fed is going to find out the hard way that raising rates and reducing the balance sheet will slow the economy.

I believe that will ultimately lead to another flip-flop and the Fed will once again loosen.

When the market sees that the Fed has decided to flip from tightening to an easing policy, look for increased volatility — and more corrections.

Illegals Flaunt Unlawful Status Outside ICE Headquarters

Home » Immigration, North America, Protests » Illegals Flaunt Unlawful Status Outside ICE Headquarters



 


Illegals in New Jersey flaunted their unlawful immigration statuses outside of ICE headquarters during protests Monday over the DACA Act.

Newark police escorted a march of some 200 illegals and supporters from Rutgers University to the US Customs and Immigration Enforcement office, as protesters carried signs reading, “We are the future of America,” “Pass the Dream Act,” and, “Stop racism now.”

The “No papers, no fear” protests took place on March 5, the deadline for DACA recipients who did not apply for a renewal by October 5, 2017, after which “Dreamers” who were not granted an extension would be eligible for deportation.

President Trump indicated on Tuesday that a federal judge had ruled the DACA program, set in motion by an Obama administration memo, could legally be ended.

“Federal Judge in Maryland has just ruled that ‘President Trump has the right to end DACA.’ President Obama had 8 years to fix this problem, and didn’t. I am waiting for the Dems, they are running for the hills!” the president tweeted.

Back in September, a “DACA talking points” DHS memo obtained by CNN stated Dreamers should “use the time remaining on their work authorizations to prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States — including proactively seeking travel documentation — or to apply for other immigration benefits for which they may be eligible.”

DC police sued over unlawful pepper-spraying of 10 year old boy at Trump inauguration

DC protesters

    

A 10-year-old boy and his mother are suing Washington, DC police officers for unlawfully pepper spraying them during a roundup of protesters on President Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day.

The complaint filed Wednesday says that Gwen Frisbie-Fulton and her son, identified only as as “AS” – since he was 10 at the time – were peacefully demonstrating when police kettled protesters at 12th and L Streets on January 20, 2017.

The lawsuit says police discharged pepper-spray in “supersoaks.” Frisbie-Fulton and her son tried to escape the spraying, but AS was knocked back into the group by a line of officers.

“I was terrified for my son’s safety. When he was knocked down, I instinctually jumped on top of him to cover his body with mine,” said Frisbie-Fulton said in an ACLU statement. “We are told police are there to keep us safe, but on Inauguration Day they were the ones who put us in danger.”

In a video along with the complaint, police can be seen discharging canisters of pepper spray at protesters. As the video tracked the chaotic scene, protesters, including a disabled woman and another on crutches, try to escape the pepper spray. A woman runs past the camera yelling “My child!” The camera follows the woman and child as someone yells “water, water,” and another yells “medic.”

Frisbie-Fulton said she tried to carry her son away from the chaos but he was coughing and choking so much she could not carry him any further until another protester assisted her.

The lawsuit names 27 officers of the Metropolitan Washington Police Department, and has been filed with the assistance of the DC chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

“The 27 defendants we added today are either supervisors who directed unlawful conduct or individual officers we have specific reason to believe committed unlawful act, such as pepper-spraying peaceful demonstrators or journalists,” Scott Michelman, senior staff attorney for ACLU-DC said in a statement. “Unlike the US Attorney’s approach of its criminal charges against demonstrators, we have named only individuals against whom we have specific evidence of wrongdoing rather than simply naming everyone who was present.”

Frisbie-Fulton’s complaint is an addition to the original lawsuit against DC police filed on June 21, 2017. The amended complaint identifies 27 officers, including eight supervisors who the ACLU alleges ordered, and in some case participated, in unlawful conduct under the direction of Police Chief Peter Newsham.

The on-scene commander, Keith Deville, and others are accused of “kettling,” a tactic in which protesters are corralled into an area before being formally arrested, as well as failure to give a dispersal order before deploying chemical weapons – including pepper spray and flash-bang grenades – against demonstrators.

“Both are violations of the DC’s First Amendment Assemblies Act,” said the ACLU-DC. The civil suit further alleges violations under the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments, as well as claims for assault, battery and false arrest, among others.

The latest filing comes on the heels of the conclusion of the first criminal trials against Inauguration Day protesters in a DC Superior Court. On December 21, the jury found all six defendants not guilty on all counts.

UK court deems segregation by sex in Islamic-faith school unlawful

    

The policy of segregating girls and boys at an Islamic-faith school has been deemed unlawful in a landmark ruling by the Court of Appeal in the UK.

Judges ruled on Friday that the separation of boys from girls constituted sex discrimination. The decision could have huge ramifications across the country.

Al-Hijrah School in Birmingham had challenged a critical report by schools watchdog, Ofsted.

However, the High Court upheld the regulator’s findings.

Last year, Justice Robert Jay ruled that the Ofsted inspectors were wrong to penalize the mixed-sex school, which orders complete segregation of pupils from year five.

But three Court of Appeal judges in London have now overturned that decision.

At the school, all breaks, school trips and clubs are held separately for all children aged over nine.

The findings from Ofsted said the children were separated to the point that they used separate corridors.

Inspectors insisted the practice left them unprepared for life in modern Britain.”

Books in the library advocated husbands beating their wives and forced sex, the report said.

Ofsted will now be able to give schools that separate children based on their gender a lower rating.

Sir Terence Etherton, Lady Justice Gloster and Lord Justice Beatson unanimously found that the actions of the school had contravened the 2010 Equality Act.

“It is common ground that the school is not the only Islamic school which operates such a policy and that a number of Jewish schools with a particular Orthodox ethos and some Christian faith schools have similar practices,” the appeal judges said.

“The relevant central government authorities should not pivot in the way they have gone about this without recognizing the real difficulties those affected will face as a consequence.”

Ofsted’s Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman said the watchdog’s job is to make sure that all schools “properly prepare children for life in modern Britain.”

“Educational institutions should never treat pupils less favorably because of their sex, or for any other reason,” she said.

“The school is teaching boys and girls entirely separately, making them walk down separate corridors, and keeping them apart at all times.

“This is discrimination and is wrong. It places these boys and girls at a disadvantage for life beyond the classroom and the workplace, and fails to prepare them for life in modern Britain.

“This case involves issues of real public interest, and has significant implications for gender equality, Ofsted, government, and the wider education sector. We will be considering the ruling carefully to understand how this will affect future inspections.”

A number of schools may now have to stop segregating pupils, or split into single sex schools.

After Cops Stole His Cash For Selling Unlawful Hot Dogs, The Internet Gave Him $70,000

The internet has spoken in the case of the viral video of police robbing a man for selling unlicensed hot dogs and they’ve raised over $70,000!

Berkeley, CA — Berkeley police are in the spotlight this week after one of their officers not only cited a man for selling hot dogs to willing customers without a permit but then opened up his wallet and robbed him of his cash as well.

The entire robbery was captured on video and subsequently went viral. But that was only the beginning. Showing how much society respects hard working entrepreneurs while decrying the police state that robs them, a Go Fund Me for the hot dog vendor has raised over $70,000.

The Go Fund Me campaign was started by the person who was brave enough to question authority and film the road side robbery. According to the campaign:

The funds raised will be utilized to cover legal and personal loses. In addition, funds in excess are to cover other vendors who have been robbed of their hard earned living through citations and removal of their carts. It is my goal to locate Juan in Berkeley. Any and all help to support and locate him is welcome.

On Monday, the video became so viral that UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy had to issue a statement, in which he justified the theft of the hot dog vendor’s money.

“While I cannot comment on the specifics of this particular case, our practice is to issue warnings before giving a citation,” Biddy said. “In a case such as this, it is typical to collect any suspected illegal funds and enter them into evidence.”

According to NBC 5, UCPD officials said that three other people were warned about vending without a permit, but the vendor in the video was the only person who was given a ticket.

Perhaps it was because he had the thickest wallet.

Whether or not the money in the man’s wallet was from selling unlicensed hot dogs remains to be answered. However, that was apparently of no importance to UC police officer Sean Aranas who found it necessary to confiscate it all.

Yes, selling food without first paying the government for permission—known as a permit—is against the law. However, this does not in any way justify this incident.

“That’s not right man, that’s not right,” Martin Flores, the man who took the video, said as he used his phone to record Aranas issuing the hot dog vendor, Beto, a ticket.

“That’s how it works,” the male officer responded. “Take it to a judge, and the judge can decide whether or not it’s right.”

The officer then

took the money out of the vendor’s wallet, and when he began to protest in Spanish, the officer told him to “Back up.”

“You’re going to take his hard-earned money?” Flores asked. The officer replied, “Yep.”

“He doesn’t have a permit,” the officer replied as he dug through Beto’s wallet to steal his cash. “Yep. This is law and order in action.”

In an interview with NBC Bay Area’s sister station Telemundo, the street vendor said he holds down a regular job in construction. He was selling hot dogs to earn a little extra money, he said.

“People saw I wasn’t doing anything wrong,” he said of the response to the video. “I wasn’t stealing or drinking. I was just working to sustain my family.”

As TFTP has reported, in the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice.

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown man sells unlicensed hot dogs on the road side. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal legality — and the video above is more than enough evidence to prove this.

Tory govt must refund millions to workers as employment tribunal fees ruled ‘unlawful’

Wednesday’s “landmark” decision marked a victory for the public sector trade union Unison, which had waged a four-year legal battle to overturn the government’s introduction of the fees.

The court unanimously agreed the fees were unlawful because they “prevent access to justice.”

There has been a “dramatic and persistent fall” in the number of tribunal cases since the fees of up to £1,200 (US$1,560) were introduced, judges said. Wednesday’s decision will mean from now on, claimants will not have to pay to bring a case against their employer.

The government will also be forced to refund more than £27 million to the thousands of people charged for taking claims to tribunal since July 2013, when fees were introduced by Chris Grayling, the then-Lord Chancellor.

Unison general secretary Dave Prentis hailed the outcome as a “major victory for employees everywhere” and showed the “government is not above the law.”

“When ministers introduced fees they were disregarding laws many centuries old, and showing little concern for employees seeking justice following illegal treatment at work,” Prentis said in a statement.

“The government has been acting unlawfully, and has been proved wrong – not just on simple economics, but on constitutional law and basic fairness too.”

Prentis said Unison took the case on behalf of “anyone who’s ever been wronged at work, or who might be in the future. Unscrupulous employers no longer have the upper hand.”

He added that the “unfair fees” have let “law-breaking bosses off the hook these past four years, and left badly-treated staff with no choice but to put up or shut up.”

In its judgement, the court said the fees were not lawful because they had clearly stopped people from using the tribunals system. They said the fees could not be “affordable” if families on modest incomes were forced to “forgo an accepted standard of living” to pay them.

Frances O’Grady, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), tweeted that the judgment is a “massive” win for workers.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also took to Twitter to call the win “significant.”
