Friday, October 12th, 2012

The Philladelphia police union is throwing a benefit party to honor the cop who was recently fired for doing this:

    “Fired”. Yes, I’m glad he lost his job, but there’s still a very good chance that he’ll be reinstated with back pay after appeal. Just long enough for the story to move off the front page.

    Hey, they fired him for hitting her, so they admit it was wrong. So…let’s see him up on charges of assault.

    The benefit can go towards his legal defense fund.

    Retired cop says “unbelievable, but it’s no surprise”

    Yup, ’nuff said.

    So it’s not an “official” F.O.P, event, but it’s being advertised on F.O.P. letterhead, and on the F.O.P. website, and will be held in an F.O.P. hall? How much more “official” can it get?

    Philadelphia police Lt. Jonathan D. Josey II is a “highly professional” human turd-stain.

    Just for fun, the party will feature a Puerto Rican beatdown contest.

    Afterwards, all the victims will be charged with disorderly conduct.

    Fundraisers are just the beginning. If they follow the example of the federal scum at Ruby Ridge, Waco, and the Elian Gonzalez atrocity, they’ll be giving that POS a medal soon, too.

    In a way, you have to admit they’re at least being honest. It’s right here, right in our faces: “We’re gonna do whatever the hell we want, and if you proles don’t like it, tough shit.”

    “It was inappropriate for the city to apologize to this woman and drop the charges until the investigation was complete,” McNesby said. “And we still don’t believe it’s a fireable offense.”

    Really? Holy shit!

    The cop wasn’t defending himself or another person. The victim wasn’t resisting arrest, or even aware that he wanted to arrest her. There’s no conceivable justification for this attack. It’s assault and battery pure and simple, followed by a false arrest. The criminal just happens to be a cop.

    “Come On Out and Support ONE OF OUR OWN”

    Does this message of solidarity mean that all Philadelphia FOP members support punching non-violent women in the face?

    I see a nice size protest outside this little event on October 28th…if it gets organized, I am a lucky 60 minutes from Philly

    Hah, the defense attorney’s reaction is so confident I have to wonder if there might be a chance he won’t be reinstated.

    The longer the people allow the government to retain its monopoly on community policing and security, the worse the ongoing police-brutality-against-innocent-civilians will get.

    It is very difficult for many people to understand that this kind of government monopoly is perhaps the most dangerous kind.

    First, monopolists are not accountable. The people they “serve” have no choice but to use these monopolists’ “services.” And second, when you have a system in which some people are given artificial authority over others – and by law – and are given the powers for themselves to be above the law, of course you are inviting trouble.

    We can avoid all this kind of stuff with freedom and choice, and a free market in security. I know, a lot of people find that absurd, but just look at our society now. It’s a police state, not just with federal intrusiveness, Nazi-like TSA, and militarism, but local police departments all across America are acting like Nazis and Soviet brutes now.

    Robert Murphy explains here how a free market in security could work:

    I like to think that libertarians especially have an open mind.

    He probably thinks that the cops acting like this will make winning a damages lawsuit that much easier.

    The Philly cops are so used to beating people without any repercussions that standing up for one of their own, no matter how bad it makes them look, just comes natural.

    It helps to remember that Philly is the only city where the mayor and the police have ordered and carried out the aerial fire bombing of a neighbourhood because they didn’t care for the politics of the residents of ONE house in the neighbourhood.
    Philly is moving toward Detroit status rapidly.

    I consider myself still relatively new to this site ( less than 2 years) , so this kind of thing is still really shocking to me. There is just no shame.

    Can we arrange a Predator attack for the FOP hall?

    Well now why doesnt someone who knows about these things create a fundraiser/benefit type thing for that unfortunate police assault victim?
    She sure as F deserves something like that more than that pitifully obese, defiler of all that “Protector Of The Innocent” represents.

    MOVE really was a plague to its neighbors– filth and loudspeaker ranting at all hours. Firebombing the house was not the solution, but something needed to be done.

    The scandal continued after the bombing– instead of money compensation, the neighbors were given highly defective replacement houses.

    I don’t suppose there’s also a small “He was an a**hole and we’re glad he’s gone” party? I mean, I don’t think it’s likely, but has anyone asked?

    Q: How many cops does it take to change a light bulb?

    A: None. They just beat the room for being dark.

    It’s not a message of solidarity, they wouldn’t throw the party if he had robbed a bank. They are throwing the party because they think he was railroaded, they think he used an appropriate level of force.

    This pig-thug should be strongly encouraged to do the right thing and eat a bullet “for the good of the service”. It’s what the French Foriegn Legion used to do, it’s what any honorable man would do.

    Anyone who goes to this party should be arrested for being an accessory after the fact. Same goes for the FOP officials.
