Police Officers manufacturing evidence-- Wide Spread problem or One-Off?

Police Departments

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

Email:  ntb@thethinkering.com

 

Op/Ed

 

Allegations of police officers planning drugs have been a long time complaint in minority communities in the United States.   In some cities this has led to oversight commissions, special investigative bodies, but in large nothing ever comes of such complaints. 

Since the rash of unarmed American’s being shot down by police has prompted departments to employ body cameras, departments nationally have excited the prosecutor’s office to do something about it and most simply ignore it.   

Recently, in the city of Baltimore States attorney Marilyn Mosley, has identified 123 cases associated with officers mishandling evidence based on body-camera footage.   She has said 34 of the cases under review will be dismissed and the others will remain under review.

Email:  samuel@thethinkering.com

 

Rumors of the president of the US running dysfunctional businesses have persisted and Trump detractors are citing a revolving door white house as more of the same. 

Anthony Scaramucci, a former hedge fund executive was released from for the position of Communications director on Monday as turmoil continue on Pennsylvania Avenue.  People close to the president deny dysfunction, and insist there is no chaos at all.  But the dismissals are telling a different story.   Scaramucci took over as the White House Communications director or was scheduled to in August, but was fired before his tenure began.

A few other people who have departed from the White House are:

 

Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff.

Transgender: A real Fake News Story

Transgender Fake News

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

 

Empty rhetoric is what we are bombarded with on a daily from news commentators to the president of the United States.

The latest announcement from the White house is no more transgender troops. The announcement ran the news circuits as if it was the story of the day. If that's the story of the day, I’m a redhead monkey.

Allow me to explain. Currently, there are 1,495,995 total active military personnel available now, July 2017. Of that number, 1,137,916 are enlisted troops. Its frustrating to have to stop talking about more important and pressing issues to deal with such trivial issues as transgender recruitment.

Veteran Senator and military veteran John McCain announced yesterday he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. 

The Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said tests revealed a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma.  The prognosis of this type of aggressive tumor are not usually very good.   Late senator Edward Kennedy survived just under one year and six months after he was diagnosed with the same type of tumor.

He and his family are considering further treatment options but are expected to settle on a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. 

In a social media missive former president Barack Obama said “John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I've ever known. Cancer doesn't know what it's up against. Give it hell, John.”

Does Aunt Jemima live in Memphis?

Ms. Carter

Scribe:  Samuel Otis

Email:  samuel@thethinkering.com

 

“Ms. Carter is one of our very dear patients and has been for years. She is one of many African American patients and I count it a privilege to be their doctor. Anything I said that tarnishes that image and my respect for her was a misspoken blunder on my part and was not intended to show disrespect for Ms. Carter. I am very sorry for that misunderstanding.” Dr. James Turner a Memphis, Tennessee dermatologist made this statement after referring to Ms. Lexi Carter as “Aunt Jemima.”

Ms. Carter said that he called her by the name not once but twice during a recent visit, after which she called a local news station and reported the incident. 

The name Aunt Jemima’s history is rooted in minstrel show when whites word ‘blackface’ while denigrating the existence of people of color for cheap laughs from other racists.

Did Putin purchase the White House?

Putin owning Trump

There is nothing new about Donald Trump being referred to as a crook.  And in business that usually means becoming a pariah, although in his case, he had the bakers leveraged to the point they were encouraged to help him out of bad situation after bad situation. 

The most recent incident is the Russian affair yet again.   Trump Jr. has been caught with his hand in the cookie proverbial cookie jar.     The sad part is the democrats and others in Washington, D.C. are willing to protect the institution at all cost – even if means opening the White House to a known unethical American Businessman.   

The chumps’ racism is a well-known fact, as The Thinkering News and others have provided incident after incident of immoral behavior.

N. Tru Bass: Sandra Bland's Death Sparks New Laws and Possible Killer Walks

Sandra Bland

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

Email:  ntb@thethinkering.com

 

Op/Ed

 

Sandra Bland was found dead in a Texas jail cell three days after a traffic stop conducted by Brian Encinia.   He was the only person charged with a crime surrounding Bland’s senseless death, and he was only charged with perjury, for saying that Bland was, “combative and uncooperative,” when he made the stop in rural Houston.  When Dashcam video was released, it’s obvious the officer lied about the nature of the stop. 

On Wednesday, charges of Perjury were dropped. 

It seemed that only Black Lives Matters and African American organizations were incensed, when in fact the Criminal Justice system should have been incensed.  The 28-year-old, African American woman was found dead in the Waller County Jail.
