Cop's Tip For Not Getting Raped By A Cop: 'Don't Get Pulled Over'

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/23/oklahoma-police-rape_n_5870752.html

In response to the arrests of three law enforcement officials in Oklahoma for sexually assaulting women while on the job, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper told women they can avoid getting raped by a cop if they simply follow traffic laws.

Raw Story first pointed out on Tuesday that Capt. George Brown, a state trooper, shared a few tips for women in an interview with local NBC News affiliate KJRH. Brown told the KJRH anchor that women can keep their car doors locked and speak through a cracked window if a trooper approaches them. If the trooper asks a woman to get out of the car, Brown said, she can ask "in a polite way" why he wants her to do that.

But the "best tip that he can give," the anchor said on air of her interview with Brown, "is to follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over."

In the past month, a Tulsa County Deputy, an OHP trooper and an Oklahoma City police officer have all been charged with repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting women while on the job.


In other news, every aspiring rapist now knows he can get away with it by simply passing through the Police Academy.

VIDEO: Pregnant woman slammed onto street by NYPD cop in Sunset Park

SUNSET PARK, Brooklyn (PIX11) – The video captured over the weekend on 5th Avenue in Sunset Park is extremely disturbing.

A pregnant woman is seen being thrown down to the ground by an NYPD officer.

Another look at the disturbing video in slow motion shows the woman — who is six months pregnant — not only landing on her stomach, but she and her developing child having to absorb the weight of a police officer on top of her as well.

Authorities say police were attempting to apprehend a man who was possibly in possession of a gravity knife when several family members, which included the pregnant woman, tried to intervene.

Denis Flores is the founder of the El Grito de Sunset Park, an advocacy group that brings attention to what he describes as controversial tactics of the NYPD.

Flores says there is only one resolution in this latest case.

“These cops need to be fired,” Flores told PIX11 News.

IMHO there are more proximate threats to the safety and security of Americans than in the remote deserts of the Middle East, and this is near the top of the list. This kind of violence against regular people has been normalized - if you do not fear cops these days, you are not paying enough attention!
