No, officer it’s still not a crime to film the police. Seriously, call dispatch and ask.

Denver police continue thuggery by arresting teen girls for (spins wheel)……chalking the sidewalk.

August 29, 2008

These girls had permission from both the Denver City Attorney David Fine and Denver Deputy Chief of Police John Lamb. to write chalk messages on public sidewalks during the Democratic National Convention. Apparently someone forgot to relay that message to officers in the field. Even though they didn’t, one wonders what the security threat is of a couple of tiny girls writing on the sidewalk in chalk. I’m sure the good people of Denver felt much safer after those girls were arrested. One thing the Denver PD can’t be accused of is political bias. The teens arrested here were protesting abortion policies, but earlier this week the police knocked the living hell out a protester from Code Pink, a group opposed to the Iraq War. Right-wing, left-wing……as long as they can be violently arrested and justify the Denver PD’s overtime, it doesn’t matter.

Also arrested was Rev. Patrick Mahoney, who was further threatened with felony prosecution for “leading” the event.

Constitutional law……now there’s a good course for police cadets to learn preferably before “Tazering 101” and “Deny, Deny, Deny-A Policeman’s Guide to Protecting His Fellow Officers’ Butts.”

Watch the menacing “Sidewalk Sisters” get taken down before detonating their chalk bombs.

1-Legged war veteran comes to aid of mother and baby from 2 thugs……and he’s arrested.

Yes, because he was carrying a rusted truncheon (a retractable baton) that wouldn’t even open. Royal Navy veteran Stephen Beerling heard a woman screaming outside of his house at 2:30 a.m. He called 999, the UK version of 911, and rushed out to help the woman, grabbing the truncheon in case he needed it to defend himself or the woman.

He was able to talk to the 2 men harassing the woman and her child. Police arrived and arrested the men but also arrested Beerling for possessing the truncheon, which he hadn’t even removed from his pocket.

Thankfully, no charges will be pressed against this good Samaritan. Of course, in characteristic bureaucratic style, a simple, “Whoops, we really screwed up, sorry,” type of apology or explanation wasn’t issued. Instead, police released the following statement:

Kent Police and Senior Crown Prosecutor Janet Garnon-Williams said in a statement: ‘A decision has been taken jointly to discontinue the case as there is not a realistic prospect of conviction.’

How kind of them…….
