WATCH: Power-Tripping Cop Attacks Innocent Man, Showing Us Everything Wrong with Police

power-trippingpower-tripping

Walnut Ridge, AR — With great power comes great responsibility, or so the quote goes. However, those who wield this great power over the public are often the ones who irresponsibly abuse this authority to inflict harm and oppress those they ostensibly protect. As the video below illustrates, this abuse of authority by power-tripping police officers lays waste to rights, puts innocent people in harm’s way, and is the antithesis to a free society.

The taxpayers of Walnut Ridge, Arkansas will soon be held accountable for the actions of their public servants as a lawsuit has been filed in response to infuriating tyranny caught on video. The incident began as a traffic stop and quickly escalated into an unlawful detention, assault, deprivation of rights and, eventually, conspiracy.

The victim in the video below, Adam Finley had done nothing wrong and had committed no crime when he was targeted by officer Matthew Mercado in December of 2016. Finley was simply on his way to work when Mercado pulled him over because he had out of state plates.

According to officer Mercado, having out of state plates was reasonable suspicion to harass and eventually attack and assault an innocent man.

As NEA reports, at the beginning of the stop, Mercado asked Finley why he was working on the railroad crossing. Finley was in an unmarked white work truck but had all of his work equipment on including an orange work coat and badge. The BNSF employee explained he worked for the railroad. This is when the lawsuit says Mercado took issue with Finley’s attitude and asked him to step out of the vehicle.

In spite of the fact that Finley obeyed every order the power-tripping officer barked, Mercado continued to curse, threaten, and escalate the situation. Eventually, Mercado would assault Finley by shoving him into the door of his truck and putting him in handcuffs.

As the officer searched through Finley’s truck, he continued to swear, threaten, and intimidate the innocent man. After flexing his authority for several minutes, this power-tripping cop eventually let Finley go—but not before issuing another threat—telling him that he would “ride the lightning” next time.

This would only be the beginning of Finley’s oppression, however. After he’d been unlawfully detained, Finley decided to file a complaint with the department to let them know how much of a loose cannon Mercado was.

Instead of taking his complaint, however, according to the lawsuit, the Walnut Ridge police department would then conspire to cover their officer’s actions and arrest Finley.

According to the report,

Finley went to Walnut Ridge Police Department to file a complaint right after this but that’s when he claims he was once again treated unfairly. He said he was interrogated by Chief of Police Chris Kirksey and Officer Matt Cook and following that, cited by Cook for refusal to submit and obstructing governmental operations.

The lawsuit calls this an attempt by the three law enforcement officers to “cover their actions” by charging Finley with two misdemeanor offenses.

Attorney Mark Rees is representing Finley and did not mince words he noted that the Walnut Ridge police had “vicious propensities.”

“If they would have taken the complaint, reprimanded the guy, and treated my guy respectfully when he entered the department, he wouldn’t have gotten a citation, wouldn’t have hired a lawyer, wouldn’t have came to my office and would have felt they did something,” said Rees. “But you live and learn.”

Now, because of the actions of the corrupt police department, the taxpayers of Walnut Ridge will be held to the fire.

The Free Thought Project agrees with the lawsuit when it refers to the situation in the video below as “outrageous and utterly intolerable in a civilized society.”

WATCH: Pink Floyd Frontman Stops Concert To Explain False Flag Chemical Attack in Syria

Pink FloydPink Floyd

During a solo concert this week in Barcelona, Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters took a moment to address the audience about the recent bombing of Syria. Waters said he was approached by someone before the concert who wanted to get onstage and speak on behalf of the White Helmets about the alleged chemical attacks in Douma.

Instead of bringing the anonymous man onstage, Waters addressed the crowd on the issue himself, saying that he believes the White Helmets are a propaganda organization on a mission to justify western intervention in the region. Waters said he believes that the person who wanted to make a statement was well-intentioned, but misled, and then offered his opinion to the audience.

The White Helmets is a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists,” Waters said. “That’s my belief. We have opposing beliefs. If we were to listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to start dropping bombs on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for us as human beings.”

What we should do is go and persuade our governments not to go and drop bombs on people. And certainly not until we have done all the research that is necessary so that we would have a clear idea of what is really going on. Because we live in the world where propaganda seems to be more important than the reality of what is really going on,” he added.

The White Helmets have been known to work with terrorists to achieve regime change in Syria. The white helmets were also caught staging videos of atrocities in an attempt to bait western powers into war and were later forced to apologize.

The group also came under fire last June when video surfaced that showed members assisting in disposing of the dead bodies of Syrian soldiers. The US-backed “aid workers” were seen celebrating their kill whilst holding the heads of the dead.

As it stands, the White Helmets are heavily funded by the U.S. and the UK, as well as many other international entities. That may be the reason they always worked in rebel-held areas of the greater Syrian conflict. The WH serve as a de facto propaganda wing of the West to sway public opinion into supporting regime change in Syria.

As proof, one only has to look to the story of Omran Daqneesh, a Syrian boy reportedly pulled from the rubble of a bombed out building. Daqneesh’s image was broadcast around the world and used as a propaganda tool against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The truth was later revealed by The Free Thought Project and others that it is highly likely the opposition itself destroyed the very building in which Daqneesh was residing, then used his image to promote the myth that he was attacked by Syrian forces.

According to The New York Times, Mr. Daqneesh told the real story of what happened immediately following the bombing. He never supported the opposition and appeared on Syrian state-run media to proclaim his support for Assad. He described how the White Helmets used his son as a propaganda tool without his permission.

”They took Omran, got him to the ambulance, where they filmed him. It was against my will. I was still upstairs in the house,” Mr. Daqneesh said, adding that he was pressured, and even offered money to use his son as a pawn in propaganda against the Assad regime.

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters has been consistently anti-war throughout his entire career and is no stranger to controversy. As The Free Thought Project reported in 2016, Waters made some bold statements about the war crimes of Israel in an interview with The Independent. He explained how artists are discouraged from speaking out about the atrocities taking place at the hands of the Israeli military.

“The only response to BDS is that it is anti-Semitic, I know this because I have been accused of being a Nazi and an anti-Semite for the past 10 years. My industry has been particularly recalcitrant in even raising a voice [against Israel]. There’s me and Elvis Costello, Brian Eno, Manic Street Preachers, one or two others, but there’s nobody in the United States where I live. I’ve talked to a lot of them, and they are scared s***less….” he said.

“If they say something in public they will no longer have a career. They will be destroyed. I’m hoping to encourage some of them to stop being frightened and to stand up and be counted because we need them. We need them desperately in this conversation in the same way we needed musicians to join protesters over Vietnam,” Waters added.

If propaganda is what the establishment uses to create a culture of war, then art is what the average person can use to create a culture of peace.

In times of oppression, it is very difficult for people to speak out against the constant tyranny, and when they do it can be even more difficult to get others to listen. Art is a subtle way of getting the message out to the masses. This is useful because a lot of times people are so entrenched in the mainstream culture that they will become defensive when they come face to face with facts that call their worldview into question. However, if these same ideas are presented in the form of art, people are much less defensive and are more willing to approach the information with an open mind. Art is also used by activists who want to send a message but still remain under the radar.

If you really examine some of the greatest works of art in history, you will find that the vast majority of the time, the artist was motivated by some kind of social cause. The art that really moves people and leaves a lasting impression is rarely made with the thought of making a buck or climbing the social ladder. In today’s culture, massive advertising schemes and flashy graphics are enough to catch most people’s attention long enough to make a purchase, but you’ll find that the works of art with real staying power are typically sending some kind of social message.

WATCH: Insane Cop Holds Innocent Man at Gunpoint, Illegally Searches Him and Is NOT FIRED

gunpointgunpoint

Seattle, WA — Alex Randall was on his way to work last year on his motorcycle when he was assaulted with a deadly weapon by King County Sheriff’s Department detective Richard Rowe. The detective was in the midst of a power trip mixed with road rage when he held an innocent man at gunpoint. And, no one would’ve have known about it had Randall not been filming.

Now, after the department “investigated” themselves, the officer responsible for assaulting an innocent motorist with a deadly weapon will not be fired. Instead, Rowe will get a five day vacation.

What’s more, the “punishment” of five days suspension is not for pulling the gun, according to Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht. It is for the detective’s lack of courtesy and unbecoming conduct. Apparently, holding innocent motorists at gunpoint during a fit of rage is entirely acceptable but you just can’t swear while doing it.

“I’m disappointed in Detective (Richard) Rowe’s behavior,” Johanknecht said in a press conference on Monday, according to the Seattle Times.

“Your demeanor appeared angry and ‘amped up,’ ” Johanknecht wrote in a disciplinary letter to Rowe. “I believe your excessive use of profanity, your verbal and non-verbal communications, were ineffective, discourteous and not aligned with my expectations nor our department Core Values.”

As the Times reports:

However, Johanknecht defended Rowe’s decision to pull out his firearm during the Aug. 16 incident in North King County, agreeing with the conclusion of the department’s internal investigation.

She said she believed the detective’s account in which he said the motorcyclist reached toward his waistband, causing Rowe to believe he may have had a weapon. But she wrote in the letter that she and Rowe agreed he improperly raised his gun horizontally, instead of keeping it in what is called a low-ready position.

However, as the video below illustrates, Rowe snuck up from behind his victim with the gun already pointed at him, making the “reaching for the waistband” argument a fabrication.

Johanknecht said she strayed from the normal slap on the wrist of 10 days—that an officer would receive for such behavior—because Rowe was apologetic. So, she decided to only give him five days of unpaid vacation. She also noted the “extra stress” Rowe had to undergo after the incident because of the media’s response.

The stop, which happened on August 16, 2017, received a different response from then-King County Sheriff John Urquhart. As soon as Urquhart saw the video, he immediately put the detective on administrative leave and called Randall personally to apologize.

The Free Thought Project has reported on many videos of many cops needlessly assaulting people with firearms. However, this incident exposes one of the most brazenly ridiculous and dangerous cops we’ve ever seen.

“This video shows the boldness of the King County Sheriffs Deputies and lack of fear of repercussions in threatening and intimidating an unarmed citizen with excessive use of force,” Randall wrote on YouTube.

Indeed, Rowe did not appear to care about potential repercussions as he likely knew that he wouldn’t face any—and he was right. After several months of paid vacation, otherwise known as paid administrative leave, Rowe returned to his job in his full capacity on Monday.

Citizens of King County, beware.

As the video begins, Randall is pulling up to a red light behind another vehicle and comes to a stop. All of the sudden Rowe, who is in plain clothes, sneaks up behind him with a gun.

“I turn and I am completely unprepared for what I see, which is a man with a gun in my face. And my first reaction is to simply put my hands up,” Randall told KOMO News at the time. “I’m not really able to hear because I’ve got my bike going, I’ve got my helmet on, I’m surprised at what’s happening.”

“What are you doing to me?” Randall said to the man holding him at gunpoint, who never showed him his badge.

“What do you mean what am I doing?” Rowe said. “You’re fucking driving reckless. Give me your driver’s license or I’m going to knock you off this bike.”

“I will pull over. I am unarmed,” Randall said.

“Take your ID out right now,” says the detective. “Move this bike and I’m gonna dump you,” he threatens again.

After their brief exchange, and while he is still assaulting the man with a deadly weapon, Rowe then violates Randall’s Fourth Amendment right and reaches into his pocket and pulls out his wallet.

“I’m sorry. You have a gun drawn on me, so I’m a little panicked,” Randall said.

Only after he’d held him at gunpoint and illegally searched him did the detective identify himself.

“You’re right, because I’m the police,” Rowe said. “That’s right. When you’re driving and you’re going to place people at risk at 100 miles an hour plus on the God dang roadway.”

According to Randall, however, he was not driving 100 mph and that was a “fabrication and exaggeration.” Also, the detective never issued him a citation for the alleged speeding.

After the assault, Randall decided to file a complaint and this is when he found out that the detective never filed a “Use of Force” report for the incident—in spite of holding him at gunpoint.

 

“The fact that he had his gun out on a traffic stop. For a reckless driving. Allegedly reckless driving. Which is a misdemeanor. You don’t pull your gun out on somebody for something like that. We just don’t do that,” Urquhart said at the time. However, his replacement seems to be just fine with it.

After the stop, Randall asked several questions which are undoubtedly warranted. One question is why did the detective escalate to deadly force immediately? Another question is why is he holding the gun in a way to seemingly hide it? How was Randall supposed to know that he wasn’t being held up by a criminal? And, if his driving was so terrible as the detective claimed, causing him to draw his pistol—why wasn’t Randall given a citation?

These and many more questions will likely be answered in Randall’s subsequent federal lawsuit against the department for unlawful search and seizure.

As you watch the video below, think about all the incidents—not captured on video—in which we hear about unarmed individuals who are shot and killed by police officers. It is not unsafe to assume that some of those incidents could’ve happened just like this one. All the while, as this case illustrates, the officers involved get off with little to no accountability and return to their jobs.

WATCH: Teen Flexes His Rights and Owns Two Cops Harassing Him for No Reason

rightsrights

New York, NY — A video was shared with the Free Thought Project that illustrates the power of knowing and asserting your rights when being harassed or otherwise interacting with the police. It also highlights the importance of filming any and all interactions with police.

An unidentified teen was doing nothing wrong, had committed no crime, and was simply talking about baseball with a friend when police officers approached and demanded to see his id.

As the NYCLU notes, if you are stopped or questioned by police, you should never talk to them. The group details four easy to remember points when interacting with police.

  1. Police may stop and briefly detain you only if there is reasonable suspicion that you committed, are committing or are about to commit a crime.
  2. You should ask if you are under arrest or free to leave.
  3. In New York, you are not required to carry ID, and you don’t have to show ID to a police officer. If you are issued a summons or arrested, however, and you refuse to produce ID or tell officers who you are, the police may detain you until you can be positively identified.
  4. Don’t bad-mouth a police officer or run away, even if you believe what is happening is unreasonable. That could lead to your arrest.

The teen in the video was obviously well aware of these points and followed them to the letter. This was in spite of one of the officers, officer Anderson, bagde number 17270, attempting to provoke and escalate the situation.

As the video begins, the officer confronts the teen who immediately started filming. The young men were simply standing in a hallway talking about baseball when the officers confront them.

“You’re hanging out in the hallway,” says the officer, attempting to imply there is something wrong with that fact.

When the teen tells them there is nothing wrong with what they are doing, the officer then says “we’ve been getting complaints,” clearly fishing for a reason to justify his stop.

“What kind of complaints?” asks the well-informed teen.

“What do you mean what kind of complaints?” the officer asks as he appears to be making up these alleged complaints on the fly.

Having his authority questioned, however, did not go over well with officer Anderson who then became angry and combative.

“We’re getting complaints about noise complaints,” the officer says before he begins demanding the teen’s identification.

But the teen was not backing down. “Have I committed a crime? You don’t have to see my ID, sir,” the teen stated correctly.

However, the officer continued to demand his ID knowing full well that he had no probable cause to do so.

The cop claimed that he had the authority to see the teen’s ID in order to prove that the teen was not committing a crime. This is the epitome of what’s wrong with policing today. These kids were assumed guilty from the start and the cop tried to make it up to them to prove their innocence. But the teen was well-informed and was not about to have his rights trampled by the NYPD.

“Am I being detained right now?” asks the teen. “I don’t answer questions.”

This statement effectively shut down the officers who then realized they were dealing with someone who knows their rights. In fact, the cop was speechless for a brief moment before realizing they’d lost the battle.

And, just like that, this teen had flexed his rights and the cops left them alone.

WATCH: Two Men Arrested for Waiting for a Friend in Starbucks—”While Black”

starbucksstarbucks

Philadelphia, PA — A video of two black men getting arrested inside a Philadelphia Starbucks coffee shop this week has sparked outrage online. It has also prompted an “internal investigation” from police after there was no reason given for the arrest other than the men were waiting for a friend.

The video was shared on Twitter Thursday by @MissyDePino, which shows the two men being handcuffed and taken out of the coffee shop at 18th and Spruce Streets. To illustrate the unjust nature of the arrest, the friend that the two men were supposedly waiting on actually showed up as his friends were being handcuffed.

The man who showed up even explained to police that they were waiting for him to get there before they ordered. However, they were cuffed and arrested anyway.

As Philly.com reports, the identities of the people seen in the video and why they were handcuffed and taken out of the Starbucks by numerous officers remain unclear. District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office, reached through spokesman Benjamin Waxman on Saturday, had no immediate comment on the incident.

However, witnesses say they know what happened.

“The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything,” DePino wrote, tagging Starbucks in her post. “They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing.”

“What did they do?” asks the man claiming to be the friend of the two men. “What are they getting (arrested) for, just being black men sitting there waiting?”

One Philly officer on the scene responds sarcastically, “Exactly, that’s it.”

“What did they do?” asks the friend of the pair now in handcuffs.

“They didn’t do anything,” responds Depino as she films. “I saw the entire thing.”

As the video went viral on Twitter, it prompted users to call for a boycott of Starbucks and also urge them to respond.

On Friday, Starbucks issued a statement noting that they were aware of the video and they are “reviewing the incident.”

“We’re aware of the incident on Thursday in a Philadelphia store with 2 guests and law enforcement, resulting in their removal. We’re reviewing the incident with our partners, law enforcement and customers to determine what took place and led to this unfortunate result,” the company wrote.

Also forced to issue a response to the alleged racism was the Philadelphia Police department whose officers removed the seemingly innocent men from the store while they waited for their friend. They released a statement Friday night noting that an internal investigation was under way.

“We are aware of an incident that occurred on 4-12-18 at the Starbucks Café at 18th and Spruce. The entire incident, including the actions of the responding officers, is under internal investigation. Once we gather all the facts, we will comment further,” the police statement read.

It is certainly the right of Starbucks—as they are a private establishment—to refuse service to anyone they desire especially if they are being unruly and causing a disturbance. However, according to eye-witnesses, these two gentlemen had done nothing wrong, had not disturbed anyone and were merely waiting for their friend, who eventually showed up.

This scenario plays out in restaurants and private businesses across the country as polite friends sit without ordering anything while they await their guests.

If this man was really their friend, the police should have uncuffed the pair and immediately let them go. But this does not appear to be the case.

The Free Thought Process contacted the Philadelphia police department to inquire about the official charges these men faced, however, they did not comment citing the ongoing investigation.

The Free Thought Project also contacted a representative from Starbucks who informed us that their only unofficial policy in regards to people being in the store without purchasing something is no sleeping. The representative told us that people who don’t buy anything can essentially stay in the store all day long and they will not ask them to leave.

In this instance, however, it appears that these men were not granted that privilege.

WATCH: Mainstream Media Cuts General’s Mic As He Tells the Truth On Syrian Gas Attack

attackattack

An interview between Sky News and one of Britain’s former senior military officials on reports of a chemical attack in Syria was cut short when Major-General Jonathan Shaw started to question the logic behind the narrative that the Syrian government would intentionally launch an attack on its own people.

After serving as the commander of the British Armed Forces in Iraq, Major-General Jonathan Shaw has seen a side of the United States’ War on Terror that is hidden from the general public and covered up by the mainstream media.

In the interview with Sky News, Anchor Samantha Washington asked Shaw about whether Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s denial of responsibility for a reported chemical attack last week would force the UK to seek approval from Parliament before launching airstrikes targeting the Syrian government.

You know, quite apart from all that, the part that seems to be missing from this—and this was actually mentioned by the ambassador—is what possible motive might have triggered Syria to launch a chemical attack at this time in this place?” Shaw replied. “The Syrians are winning, don’t take my word for it, take the American military’s word for it.”

The general referenced comments made by the commander of United States Central Command, Joseph Votel, during a hearing with the Senate Armed Services Committee Transcript last month. In an exchange with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, Votel discussed the current state of the war in Syria:

GRAHAM: Is it too strong a statement to say that, with Russia and Iran’s help, Assad has won the Civil War in Syria?

VOTEL: I do not think that is too—that is too strong of a statement. I think they have provided him the wherewithal to—to be ascendant at this point.

GRAHAM: Is it still our policy that Assad must go?

VOTEL: I don’t—I don’t know that that’s our particular policy at this particular point. Our focus remains on the defeat of ISIS.

As General Shaw noted during his interview with Sky News, even U.S. officials are admitting that the “civil war” between the Syrian government and the Islamic State has come to an end—so why would Assad carry out an attack on his own people that would result in greater intervention from world superpowers, such as the U.S. and the UK?

“He said that Assad has won this war, and we need to face that,” Shaw said. “And then last week, you’ve got a Tweet by Trump that America is finished with [the Islamic State] and we’re going to pull out soon, very soon. And then suddenly you have a gas attack…”

Washington then jumped in and cut Shaw off mid-sentence, insisting that they were “out of time” after he had only been speaking for less than one minute.  

This interview serves as a reminder that while the mainstream media conduct interviews with experts and officials to make it look as though it is open to sharing different voices and opinions, Major-General Shaw appears to have shared the wrong opinion and the points he was highlighting are ones that clashed directly with narrative Sky News was selling to its viewers. This was further evidenced by the fact that the UK later teamed up with the U.S. and France to launch airstrikes targeting the Syrian government that have the potential to spark World War 3.

The question over what motive Assad would possibly have to launch a chemical attack on his own people when he knows that reports of chemical attacks in the past—even though they were unverified—have resulted in increased aggression from the United States, serves as a reminder that nearly every war in U.S. history has been started based on lies and propaganda that were used to blind the American people into believing the war was being fought “for their freedom.”
