Michigan man threatened to behead NYPD 'chokehold' officer

DEA Secret Domestic Intelligence Gathering License Plate ...

WASHINGTON—The Justice Department has been building a national database to track in real time the movement of vehicles around the U.S., a secret domestic intelligence-gathe ring program that scans and stores hundreds of millions of records about motorists, according to current and former officials and government documents. The primary goal of the license-plate tracking program, run by the Drug Enforcement Administration, is to seize cars, cash and other assets to combat drug trafficking, according to one government document. But the database’s use has expanded to hunt for vehicles associated with numerous other potential crimes, from kidnappings to killings to rape suspects, say people familiar with the matter.

Law Enforcement Using Range-R Radar that can See Movement...

At least 50 American law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and the US Marshals Service, have acquired high-powered radar that is capable of peering into houses and sensing the movement and even breathing of the residents inside. USA Today writes that these various agencies had begun “deploying the radar systems more than two years ago with little notice to the courts and no public disclosure of when or how they would be used.” These radar systems also have other legal hangups- the Supreme Court ruled in 2001 that law enforcement couldn’t use thermal camera or new-at-the-time radar technologies such as this to scan houses without a proper search warrant. Use of this technology was not public knowledge until December, when a Denver federal appeals court alleged officers used such radar before moving into a house to arrest a man for violating his parole. The judge in that case said that “the government’s warrantless use of such a powerful tool to search inside homes poses grave Fourth Amendment questions.” Read more about 50 law enforcement agencies have acquired Range-R Radar that can See Movement Inside Houses below. https://federalpro tectiveservice.wor dpress.com/2015/01 /21/50-law-enforce ment-agencies-have -acquired-range-r- radar-that-can-see -movement-inside-h ouses/ Security Police & Security Officers of America (SPSOA) affiliated with the SPSOA Law Enforcement & Security Police Unions. http://www.spsoa.o rg/  (Jan 21, 2015 | post #1)

Group Called Islamic State Threatens To Kill 2 Japanese Hostages Haruna Yukawa and Freelance Journalist Kenji Goto Jogo in Video. The group that calls itself the Islamic State, in a direct address to Japan’s prime minister, is threatening to kill two Japanese hostages unless it gets $200 million within 72 hours. The demand in a video posted online comes as Shinzo Abe is visiting the Middle East. The video shows the two men — purported to be Haruna Yukawa, who was captured in August, and freelance journalist Kenji Goto Jogo, who was last heard from on Twitter in October when he said he was in Syria — in orange jumpsuits. There is a rocky hill in the background and a masked militant, clad in black, standing between them. “To the prime minister of Japan: Although you are more than 8,000 and 500 kilometers (5,280 miles) from the Islamic State, you willingly have volunteered to take part in this crusade,” the militant says. “You have proudly donated $100 million to kill our women and children, to destroy the homes of the Muslims … and in an attempt to stop the expansion of the Islamic State, you have also donated another $100 million to train the (apostates).” Read more about this story Group Called Islamic State Threatens To Kill 2 Japanese Hostages Haruna Yukawa and Freelance Journalist Kenji Goto Jogo in Video below. https://spsoaunion .wordpress.com/201 5/01/20/group-call ed-islamic-state-t hreatens-to-kill-2 -japanese-hostages -haruna-yukawa-and -freelance-journal ist-kenji-goto-jog o-in-video/ Security Police & Security Officers of America SPSOA affiliated with the SPSOA Law Enforcement & Security Police Unions. http://www.spsoa.o rg/  (Jan 20, 2015 | post #1)

El Paso Police Officer Jose Flores Shoots Handcuffed Susp...

Newly released security video shows a handcuffed suspect being shot to death by an El Paso police officer at the city jail. The violent footage captures body builder Daniel Saenz being dragged into the jail last year, where guards refused to admit him because he was bleeding from the head after slamming himself into a jail wall, authorities said. The March 8, 2013 video was ordered released this week by the Texas Attorney General’s Office, which ordered the city to comply with an open-records request filed by the El Paso Times. Officer Flores seems to first reach for his taser, then pulls his gun and firing it at Saenz, 37, who as handcuffed behind his back but flailing and struggling with Flores and an unnamed civilian jail guard outside the lock-up. Saenz, a local body builder, had been arrested that day after he allegedly attacked an off-duty officer and staff at the Del Sol Medical Canter,where he was taken after exhibiting strange behavior at a grocery store. In the video of Saenz arriving at the city jail, he is shirtless and his pants appear to be riding down his hips as he’s dragged into the jail.

Bonnie and Clyde Vegas cop-killers’ final moments caught ...

It was a bloody end straight from a Bonnie and Clyde flick for the married Las Vegas killers — who spent their last moments wildly waving their weapons inside a Walmart as a bullet ripped into the husband, and the wife chose to kill herself. A surveillance video shows anti-government hate mongers Jerad and Amanda Miller trying desperately to hold off cops at the climax of their murderous rampage Sunday, which had already taken the lives of two officers and a civilian. The 22-year-old Amanda can be seen briefly pointing her gun at her 31-year-old hubby as he lies prone and appears to aim his weapon down the store’s aisle, according to the brief clip. The video cuts off as Amanda turns her gun toward herself. The voice of a Vegas SWAT team member, who is watching the scene unfold live, can be heard saying “The female just shot herself in the head” over the darkened screen.
