Another Scoundrel for the ever growing list of Creeping Scoundrel Pigs

7 news is reporting that Colorado Springs Officer Joshua Carrier was been arrested yesterday for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.  Investigators are alleging that Carrier is suspected of having sexual contact with several minors.

Turns out that Carrier was arrested last week as well for possession of child pornography.  Carrier is being held in El Paso County Jail.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this pinche pig is gonna have a tough time in jail, considering he is a cop and a child molester.  Shit tends to be frowned upon on the inside.

Our condolences to the victims and their family’s.

Sexual assault and child molestation appears to be a serious fucking problem within the ranks of Colorado Law enforcement agencies.   For proof click here

Multimedia Timeline of Police Brutality Begining with the Murder of Marvin Booker

Westword has unveiled one of the dopest items we have seen in a while.

Check it out here

Basically, it is a time line of events over the past year including, the murder of Marvin Booker, resistance to police brutality, lawsuits, etc..

Fuck Richard Rosenthal-Independent My Ass

Westword has an extensive feature article about the exploits of Richard Rosenthal, the Independent Monitor.  The article analyzes Rosnethal’s role as the Independent Monitor as well as attempts to address the current state of affairs of the DPD.

Let us just say right up front, FUCK RICHARD ROSENTHAL.

When asked a question in the article concerning the public perception and outrage toward the DPD Rosenthal says, “The reason we see these stories [referring to coverage regarding police brutality] is because we have a good police department, a good, transparent process, so the public can see the good, the bad and the ugly…. In Denver, we have one of the most progressive civilian oversight programs in the country.”

I mean, where to even begin.  Rosenthal is claiming that since the media “covers” police brutality cases that in and of itself is proof that the DPD is a good department.”  Such a fucking joke.  My question to Rosenthal, who after all would have these statistics is, what about the countless victims whose stories go either unreported and/or not presented by the media?

My other issue(s) with Rosenthal and the OIM is the perception that it is independent from the government.  Firstly, why is Rosenthal’s office on the 12th floor of the Webb building , which just so happens to be right next to the  City Attorney’s office.  Secondly, Rosenthal was appointed by the fucking mayor to his life long position, that’s right Rosenthal’s on some Qaddafi shit.  Thirdly, Why is it that Rosenthal really only seems to have issue when officers lie about excessive force, rather than having issue with the excessive force itself.  Finally, Rosenthal has no desire to share the burden of monitoring the police.  He is under the impression that his office is pioneering the way of police accountability, yet he has no disciplinary ability.  Nor does he involve any community led initiatives challenging police brutality.

Basically, Rosenthal is a pawn.  The state has co-opted actual notions and models of community policing by appointing Rosenthal and attempting to sell it as a progressive model that polices the police.

Despite this, people in the community and in the hood are not bamboozled by this nonsense.  We are hip to the bullshit.

Urgent: Support anti-police terror march participant Amelia Nicol, facing 90 years in prison!

From Denver Anarchist Black Cross:

Support resistance to police terror!
Support Amelia Nicol!

On Friday May 6th, over one hundred people, mostly young, poor, and angry, took to the streets in defiance of the Denver Police Department. They participated in a march, called to confront “police terror” in the Denver Metro area. Specifically, they marched to remember the deaths of Marvin Booker and Oleg Gidenko, two people murdered by area police departments in the last year.

As the the march ended, a small firework was set off in the street. Police used this act as a justification to chase one alleged participant down an alley, where she was tackled and beaten by police. This person would later be identified as Amelia Nicol, a 20 year old Colorado resident. She now faces outlandish charges including attempted murder.

We call on all people to support Amelia as she fights these attempts at intimidation and repression, and the police’s broader attack on social movements in Denver.

Background
Marvin Booker, a homeless street preacher, died at the hands of five sheriff’s deputies in the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center in downtown Denver on July 9, 2010. He was tackled, beaten, placed into chokeholds, tazed, and kicked. He eventually succumbed to the officers’ brutal attack. He was murdered for refusing to leave his shoes in the booking area of the jail.
