Contracts between police and city authorities, leaked after hackers breached the website of the country’s biggest law enforcement union, contain guarantees that disciplinary records and complaints made against officers are kept secret or even destroyed.

A Guardian analysis of dozens of contracts obtained from the servers of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) found that more than a third featured clauses allowing – and often mandating – the destruction of records of civilian complaints, departmental investigations, or disciplinary actions after a negotiated period of time.

The review also found that 30% of the 67 leaked police contracts, which were struck between cities and police unions, included provisions barring public access to records of past civilian complaints, departmental investigations, and disciplinary actions.

Samuel Walker, a professor in criminology at the University of Nebraska, Omaha, said there was “no justification” for the cleansing of officers’ records, which could contain details of their use of force against civilians.

“The public has a right to know,” Walker said. “If there was a controversial beating, we ought to know what action was actually taken. Was it a reprimand? A suspension?”

Westdeutsche Zeitung

Der Düsseldorfer Rosenmontagszug ist zwar abgesagt, aber die Mottowagen werden gezeigt: Sie stehen am heutigen Montag den ganzen Tag vor dem Rathaus – zur Besichtigung für jedermann. Und auch den ersten Ärger gibt es schon: Nach Informationen der WZ hat die türkische Generalkonsulin in Düsseldorf, Ṣule Gürel, vom Düsseldorfer Carnevals Comitee verlangt, dass der Wagen mit dem Erdogan-Motiv sofort verhüllt wird.

Satanists Have Trolled A Major City Into Submission


 Satanists Have Trolled A Major City Into Submission

Phoenix, Arizona will no longer begin its city council meetings with a prayer, a reform the council adopted in order to prevent a Satanic Temple member from offering such an opening invocation.

The move follows a 2014 Supreme Court decision that, ironically, was widely viewed as a huge blow to the separation of church and state when it was handed down. That impression, however, did not anticipate the Satanic Temple’s efforts to troll lawmakers who wish to begin their meetings with an endorsement of Religion. …

After decades of a David versus Goliath struggle with the federal government, three small Innu nations are on the verge of securing a land claim settlement unlike any other in Canadian history.

The treaty would see the First Nations and Quebec governments co-manage a territory 16 times larger than the island of Montreal — setting aside certain areas for conservation and opening others up to mining partnerships with the Innu.

It would also guarantee royalties of at least three per cent for the group on all development within their vast traditional territory — centred in Quebec’s Saguenay and Côte Nord regions. The Innu would retain exclusive hunting, fishing and…

New film recounts the story of eight Inuit who were trapped in a 19th century human zoo

by John Ahni SchertowFebruary 7, 2016

This is the story of the incredible journey of eight Inuit who came from Labrador in 1880, to Europe lured by promises of adventures and wealth, only to realize they had been trapped in a world that time has today forgotten; the world of Human Zoos. If not for one small diary found after being lost for over one hundred years, written by a man named Abraham, their tragic story would have been forgotten forever. 130 years later, author France Rivet and Inuit Elder Johannes Lampe uncover the mystery of their disappearance, discover the remains of five members of the group in Paris, and attempt to return Abraham to his…

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) –

The Richmond Police officer indicted in the murder of a Chesterfield teen is out on $25,000 bond.

A judge agreed Officer David Cobb was not a threat to the community.

Cobb is charged with the second-degree murder of 18-year-old Paterson Brown Jr., who was shot while at a Chesterfield gas station.

The defense argued that Brown was trying to steal a vehicle and Cobb, who was off-duty at the time, attempted to stop Brown using his personal gun.

Cobb had his gun out for three to four minutes before the shooting occurred. The defense attorney said Brown seemed “incoherent and hostile.”

The physical encounter was caught on video, which will be shown as evidence during the case.
