The FBI has investigated itself and found it was totally cool to shoot 150 people

I don't know, guys. Maybe the FBI needs some civilian oversight? The F.B.I. Deemed Agents Faultless in 150 Shootings - NYTimes.com
“The F.B.I. takes very seriously any shooting incidents involving our agents, and as such we have an effective, time-tested process for addressing them internally,” a bureau spokesman said. But if such internal investigations are time-tested, their outcomes are also predictable: from 1993 to early 2011, F.B.I. agents fatally shot about 70 “subjects” and wounded about 80 others — and every one of those episodes was deemed justified, according to interviews and internal F.B.I. records obtained by The New York Times through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The last two years have followed the same pattern: an F.B.I. spokesman said that since 2011, there had been no findings of improper intentional shootings. In most of the shootings, the F.B.I.’s internal investigation was the only official inquiry. In the Orlando case, for example, there have been conflicting accounts about basic facts like whether the Chechen man, Ibragim Todashev, attacked an agent with a knife, was unarmed or was brandishing a metal pole. But Orlando homicide detectives are not independently investigating what happened.

Officer Cleared After Shooting Litter of Kittens in Front of Kids

Officer Cleared After Shooting Litter of Kittens in Front of Kids - informationliberation
A police department in Ohio on Tuesday defended a humane officer who shot and killed a litter of feral kittens and told nearby children that the animals would be going to “kitty heaven.” An executive with the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals told the Sun News that Humane Officer Barry Accorti had responded to a complaint from a Vista Lake Way homeowner on Monday about a litter of kittens living in her woodpile. “He informed her that shelters were full and that these cats would be going to kitty heaven,” Ohio SPCA Executive Director Teresa Landon explained to the paper. “She assumed he would be trapping them or something and taking them to a shelter and they would be humanely euthanized if they were not adopted.” “Instead, he went to his truck and got a gun, which she thought was a tranquilizer gun, and walked around to the back of the house and approximately 15 feet from her back door shot and killed the 8- to 10-week-old kittens.” Landon said the officer began shooting the animals in front of the homeowner and within in range of her young children. “Her children were upstairs in view of the windows. They started screaming and crying because they heard the gunshots. They started screaming, 'Mommy, he's killing the kittens,'” Landon noted. “It's heartbreaking… There is no excuse for it. It's absolutely shameful that someone with the title of humane officer would do this.”

Cop Sexually Assaults Woman Then Arrests Her For Protesting

This is pure Orwellian evil. A US Marshall arrests a woman after she complains he needlessly groped her. He says he will free her if she recants her complaint against him. This all happens in front of a judge, who completely ignored her. The marshals were fired for this. Cop Sexually Assaults Woman Then Arrests Her For Protesting

Georgia cop accused of kicking 9-months-pregnant woman in the belly for crying near him

Police Officer Who Kicked Very Pregnant Woman in Stomach Claims He Didn't Know She Was Expecting
An officer with the DeKalb (GA) County Police Department stands accused of kicking a woman in the stomach several months ago — a woman who happened to be nearly nine months pregnant at the time. Jerad Wheeler had responded to a call about a domestic dispute over child custody involving Raven Dozier's brother. When the situation became heated, Wheeler fired his Taser at the man. Dozier says she then became upset and started crying, at which point Wheeler allegedly kicked her in the stomach. He also charged her with obstruction of a police officer, though that charge was later dropped. . . . Five of Wheeler's supervising officers OK'd the use of force, and no formal investigation took place. This, despite the fact that Wheeler was involved in two previous incidents that led to use-of-force complaints: One in which he twisted the arm of a 53-year-old woman, and another in which he shot a dog chained up inside a garage at the wrong address. He was let off the hook in both cases.
