Alarming Videos of South Carolina Highway Patrol Prompt Federal Probe
Thursday, March 20, 2008

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The U.S. Justice Department has started an investigation of the South Carolina Highway Patrol after dash-cam videos showed a trooper using a racial epithet and two other patrolmen ramming their cruisers into fleeing suspects, a federal prosecutor said Thursday.

"I've reviewed some of the videos, and based on that review, felt that it was appropriate to have our office involved," said Kevin McDonald, acting U.S. Attorney for South Carolina. "We will open a file like any other criminal case, and work with the FBI in their investigation, and then make prosecutorial decisions."

Highway Patrol Col. Russell Roark and his boss, Public Safety Director James Schweitzer, resigned last month after a tape surfaced showing a trooper using a racial slur. "You better run," then-Lance Cpl. Daniel C. Campbell said to a suspect, using a derogatory term for blacks, "because I'm fixin' to kill you."

Campbell was reprimanded, suspended and ordered to undergo anger and diversity training, but Gov. Mark Sanford said he should have been fired.

This week, the Highway Patrol released two more videos showing troopers using their cars to ram fleeing suspects. In one of those tapes, Lance Cpl. Steven C. Garren drives after a black man on foot, striking him when he crosses in front of Garren's cruiser. The man flips over the car's hood and into high grass on the roadside.

"Yeah, I hit him. I was trying to hit him," Garren, who is white, can be heard telling another trooper.

Garren received a three-day suspension, which he has appealed. Another trooper who also ran down a suspect with his car was reprimanded and completed a stress management course, disciplinary records show.

Sid Gaulden, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety, said none of the troopers were available for comment Thursday. He said the department welcomes the investigation.

"I believe that such an inquiry will prove the fact that there is no systemic pattern of misconduct at the Department of Public Safety," Gaulden said. "We saw problems and took action to correct those problems."

McDonald, the federal prosecutor, wouldn't say whether indictments could come from the investigation, which was first reported Thursday by The State newspaper of Columbia.
Yep SC crooked as HELL
They need to take their investigating asses to GA too.

and what about the guy that ran over his suspect and had to do stress management classes?
What the fuck is that!!!??

They'd put you, me, and the rest of us ALL in PRISON for aggravated assault with a vehicle!

"You better run because I'm fixing to kill you"

Yeah, right pig.
I had one of his type open the door of the State patrol car I was handcuffed and sitting peacefully in once and start screaming in my face like I'd just done something to him personally.
It was a County K-9 handling pig.
He asked me what my fucking problem was.
(I'd only been busted for a tiny bit of grass and had not even so much as argued with my arresting SP officers)
I told him "Your foul breath and your spitting on me"

He told me he was going to take off my cuffs and sick his dog on me and tell everyone I was trying to escape...
I told him to go ahead, I'd sit right where I was and when he sicced his dog on me I'd kill it bare handed right in front of him.
(I 've raised big dogs all my life, and yes, I do know Dog-fu)
about that time a State trooper stepped in and ran him off

Goody for me all this was recorded on the SP's dash cam and voice recorded
Deputy Dog had to go to counselling over it, I got a get out of jail free card!

the wildest COPS I ever saw ONCE (because they edited it the 2nd time I ever saw it again) was with this karate guy running through a huge neighborhood jumping about 30 walls before they tracked him down by helicopter and let loose this huge German Shepherd on him cornered in a yard. That man picked the dog up by his harness many times slamming him into the block wall- the dog in a fighting frenzy just ripping his clothes off of him. Finally the man was exhausted after a long battle with the dog and all the cops picked their jaws up off the ground and went in and arrested him. whew!

these crazy fucks need to be tested for steroids, drugs of their taste and have psyche evals when they act like this.
While valiant effort
nope..
Karate guy Dog-fu weak.

Quote: accept must you bite on hand/arm, Use Force then hand down throat- other hand having behind neck- Use Force head back over torso neck breaking then you. Work on all dog, Shepherds particularly
If no work that, continue using Force arm down dog throat, grab front leg, forcing outwards break.
Force in Dog strong. Force in human must stronger be.

Though of course I do not advocate killing or wounding dogs-
I hate trained attack dogs, and as long as they'll use them I'll know and show how to kill them if attacked.
it is a shame that they put these noble animals at risk because they're too chickenshit to take down their own suspects.
Same like it's a shame they kill otherwise noble humans sometimes by using those cowardly "non-lethal" tasers

Did these guys forget they're cops and can legally kick your ass, or did they just pussify to the point they'll use any tool to avoid having to do their job?
I've had to break up a few big dog fights and that's what came natural to me... sticking my hand down their throats, their gagging/choking reflex came in and they snapped out of their fervor and I was able to control them then.

yeah-like in their shooting the perps with their tazers then standing there like an 8 year old zapping away-50 thousand volt zaps.

Kung fu guy was balanced... the cops kept insisting he was on meth...maybe but he was always on both feet. balanced as big dog jumped him with everything he had. Balance.
Not exactly on topic, but this is alarming; this is the face of near-future law misenforcement in Ameriqaeda.

Calling the police to account

From today, it is illegal to photograph the police, despite the fact that they use increasingly aggressive techniques to record us.

On the day that it becomes illegal to take pictures of police engaged in counter-terrorist operations – in practice a ban on taking pictures of the police – it is worth noting events in Brighton recently where police set up outside a cafe and photographed people attending a meeting about the environment.

According to the Brighton Argus, members of the Cowley Club, which was hosting a meeting of Earth First, "were confronted with four uniformed officers outside the Somerfield store, opposite the venue, snapping visitors using a paparazzi-style lens". One of the club members, David Biset, said the police were behaving in a deliberately "intimidating manner". He said:

Avenues of dissent are being closed down and police feel able to treat politics as a police matter. There was no suggestion of anything going on outside the building. The police have no reason to be there beyond intimidating people. You shouldn't be put on a database simply for attending a meeting.

The local MP, David Lepper, agrees that the police operation was designed to scare activists rather than prevent crime, and has written to the divisional commander for Brighton and Hove demanding to know why officers were photographing people engaged in a political activity. The police have refused to comment other than to produce the usual assertion that this was a normal police operation.

But of course this action breaches the Human Rights Act, which guarantees freedom of association. It is clear that people will not feel free to meet on these legitimate matters of concern if the police are taking photographs and adding images to a database. What is worrying is that this operation may be an intimation of things to come with the new central intelligence unit set up by Acpo to monitor activists and extremist groups.

Although I write as someone who has no particular axe to grind about the police, I am beginning to wonder whether we have a serious problem with a police force that believes it is entitled to monitor political activity. Set against the new law banning photographs of the police – which surely will be used by every policeman parked on a double yellow line or meting out the rough justice – there is increasing tendency of the police to photograph people in an aggressive fashion. It shows an innate lack of respect for the innocent citizen and the conventions of our free society, which is extremely disturbing.

Yesterday the Mail on Sunday published an extensive investigation into Acpo and alleged that not only was it making vast amounts of money as a private company – a status that seems extraordinary given the money received via the Home Office from the taxpayer – but that it had been pushing a self-serving agenda that mimicked the governing board of a national police service, yet without the accountability and scrutiny expected in most public bodies. The Mail called it "One of the most mysterious and powerful organisations in Britain".

The paper, which has led a lot of reporting on the crisis of rights and liberties in this country, went on to comment:

Now it turns out to be a comfortable gravy train for retired police chiefs and a grasping business charging the public up to £70 for criminal records information which it can obtain for 60p.

In response to this story, Acpo produced a statement from its head Ken Jones:

British policing is among the best in the world and in counter-terrorism, in the way we investigate murder, in forensics and many other areas of criminal investigation we are recognised leaders through the efforts of chief officers working through Acpo. Beyond 44 local police forces there is no national operational policing structure and so chief officers voluntarily combine through Acpo to agree approaches, lift the performance of the police service and protect lives.

He did not address the substantive issue that Acpo is run on largely secret and unaccountable lines and in the rest of the statement he doesn't deny Acpo's profiteering activity. The paper is right when it says "Parliament should urgently investigate this strange, unaccountable body and bring it under proper control". We need to take a serious look at the police and policing in Britain and establish certain ground rules which say that the police have no business assessing what is and what is not legitimate political activity.

I end with this, which I first used in the Summerfield lecture at the Cheltenham Literary Festival two years ago. It bears repeating.

If you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

For all our sakes this battle must be fought now and not left until it is too late.
Keith, just wondering if your dog-fu techniques work on big fat pigs also?

Freddie Cougar finally unleashed his pent up anger and cat-fu'd the plant killing pissing yapping keltie poor excuse for a dog that lives next door. Yes, little Freddie, who shreds cat food bags wide open seemingly by thought alone but has always ran from every scroungy mutt who wanders by, found his lost (we thought) catjones and ripped the shit out of the keltie. Freddie now patrols the yard and chases the keltie whenever he sees him. He uses the 4 legged flying knife claw technique to effectively hamburgerize his target. Some feel dog fu is a powerful technique, but they have never been pink misted by the four flailing fileters of feline ferocity.
