ACAB Radio is a weekly live podcast out of Las Vegas put on by local activists from Food Not Bombs Las Vegas and Nevada Cop Block. We discuss local, national, and global police news stories as well as many other topics
"I began to try to understand how this becomes baked into your daily practices in a way that because you can’t see it as anything but helping you is getting everybody hurt. You’re plowing into churches. You’re plowing into light poles, and it’s costing the department money, and it’s just all bad and it’s all revolving around the same cultural value, the danger imperative. 'I need to stay safe no matter what, even if it gets me killed.'"
The twisted logic that led to the deaths of Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright.
"Boosted by a massive presence of National Guard officers, state troopers, and even conservation cops who flooded the zone at the orders of Minnesota’s supposedly liberal Democratic governor, Tim Walz, soldiers and officers dressed in robocop gear thundered down suburban streets in military cruisers."
Raising a 'thin blue line' flag, pepper-spraying journalists and blockading a church, Brooklyn Center, MN, is Ground Zero for an American police state.
"'Multiple people accused Officer Johnathan Freitag of planting drugs,' Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano and deputy Kyle Manikas wrote in a filing obtained by the Post. 'In several cases handled by the officer, narcotics went missing from the property room, including co***ne and ma*****na. The officer repeatedly edited police reports in cases where the narcotics went missing, sometimes over 100 times in a single case.'"
The Virginia officer was involved in more than 900 cases that resulted in 400 convictions, including seven felonies.
"According to the Austin Police Department, 41-year-old Stephen Broderick is suspected of shooting and killing three people in northwest Austin on Sunday. He’s a former Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective.
Broderick was initially placed on leave in June 2020 after being charged with s*xual assault of a child that month."
Austin police, the FBI and several other law enforcement agencies are helping with the search for an ex-law enforcement fugitive, who is the main suspect in a deadly Austin shooting.
"Reckoning with police violence must include a reckoning with how U.S. Supreme Court precedent has enabled it through its decades-long campaign to empower law enforcement in the so-called War on Drugs. Litigators must continue to push the Court to revisit these damaging decisions with the goal of overturning or weakening the precedents that have put too much power and discretion in the hands of police."
A reckoning with police violence must include a reckoning with how the nation’s highest court enabled it.
"The lawsuit alleges that the officers' actions caused Black to die of asphyxiation. It alleges that Dr. David Fowler and the medical examiner who conducted Black's autopsy intentionally covered up for police by ignoring evidence of asphyxiation and playing up other factors that supported the police narrative."
The former chief medical examiner for Maryland who testified on behalf of the officer accused of killing George Floyd is a defendant in a federal lawsuit over the death of a man who died under circumstances similar to Floyd. Dr. David Fowler was chief medical examiner in Maryland for 17 years before...
"Deputy Marc Antrim and two fake deputies sported official clothing worn by the sheriff’s office and sported duty belts while carrying fi****ms, the attorney’s office said.
One bogus deputy also visibly carried a long gun, the release said.
The robbery took approximately two hours. Antrim and his co-conspirators -- Kevin McBride, 45, of Glendora, and Matthew James Perez, 44, of Ontario -- detained three warehouse security guards in the back of the sheriff’s SUV, the Times reported. Another accomplice, Daniel Aguilera, 33, of Los Angeles, arrived in a rental truck, which the group loaded with ma*****na, the newspaper reported."
A former sheriff’s deputy in Los Angeles County who orchestrated a fake drug raid and stole more than a half-ton of ma*****na and $600,000 in cash was sentenced Monday to seven years in federal prison.
"Police identified Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41, as the suspect, and said that he is armed and dangerous...Mr Broderick is a former Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective and was charged with the s*xual assault of a child in June 2020."
Police identified Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41, as the suspect, and said that he is armed and dangerous
"Civil rights attorney Ben Crump responded to the charging decision Wednesday, saying it isn't enough.
'While we appreciate that the district attorney is pursuing justice for Daunte, no conviction can give the Wright family their loved one back,' he wrote in a press statement. 'This was no accident. This was an intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force.'"
Potter will make her first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
"Drawing on interviews with more than a dozen FBI officials, the report traces Hendricks’ harassment to his time at FBI headquarters, where he served as a section chief in the Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate. He was tapped in 2018 to lead the Albany field office, where he supervised more than 200 agents and other FBI employees. Six of his accusers were in Albany; two were in Washington."
James Hendricks quietly retired last year after the Office of Inspector General concluded he s*xually harassed eight female subordinates.
"After 11 days, 38 witnesses and dozens of video clips showing the minutes before and after George Floyd died under the knee of Derek Chauvin, the prosecution in the murder trial of the former police officer rested its case Tuesday...
The defense began calling witnesses Tuesday. The judge said he expected closing arguments to happen Monday."
The prosecution in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, charged in George Floyd's death, rested its case Tuesday.
The Paris Illinois Police Department is pretty OK with Officer Philip Kohlenberg staying on their payroll while he trolls for underage girls in his patrol car.
Don't forget to let the Paris Illinois Police Department know what you think of Officer Philip Kohlenberg and their employment standards.
"Sunday's killing of Wright, 20, is at least the third high-profile death of a Black man during a police encounter in the Minneapolis area in the last five years, after the shooting of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights in 2016 and death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last year."
The police officer accused of shooting and killing a Black man in a Minneapolis suburb during a traffic stop over the weekend -- a shooting her chief says was accidental -- has resigned, the suburb's mayor told CNN on Tuesday.
"Upon arriving to the warehouse, Deputy Antrim flashed his sheriff’s badge and a fake search warrant to security guards working at the entrance. He and the other thieves wore duty belts, carried fi****ms and arrived in an official patrol vehicle — an LASD Ford Explorer. One of the fake deputies carried a long gun to intimidate the guards, according to prosecutors."
Following the convictions of six co-conspirators, a former Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was sentenced to seven years in federal prison Monday for orchestrating a $2 million armed robbe…
"In 2019, Officer Kim Potter—who was the police union president at the time—was admonished by investigators for allegedly attempting to conceal evidence after a police shooting that left a 21-year-old autistic man dead."
Officer Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, was identified as the person who fired a bullet into 20-year-old Daunte Wright’s chest.
"We don’t know the full details of Wright’s death yet. But the excuses have already begun, with Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon saying he believes the officer who killed Wright got their Taser and gun mixed up."
It’s always the most haunting details that stick with you: the fact that Wright called his mother right before he encountered police, just as George Floyd called for his own mother as Derek Chauvin leaned on his neck
"As officers approach his vehicle, Lt. Caron Nazario is heard saying, 'I'm serving this country, and this is how I'm treated?' before Officer Joe Gutierrez responds that he is also a veteran and 'learned to obey...'
'I've not committed any crime,' Nazario continues to say in the footage obtained from the incident. 'I'm honestly afraid to get out.'
'Yeah dude, you should be,' one officer replies as he tries to open the door to Nazario's SUV."
Lt. Caron Nazario is seeking $1 million in compensatory damages
"Dr. Martin Tobin told jurors that 'a healthy person subjected to what Mr. Floyd was subjected to would have died as a result,' potentially undercutting the defense's argument that Floyd died from a combination of his struggle with officers, health conditions and drugs."
Dr. Martin Tobin testified Thursday in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, charged in George Floyd's death.
"One of the videos depicted two boys between 10 and 14 years old having s*x with each other. The other video showed a young boy pleasuring himself, according to court papers.
Officer Mitchell Emile, a six-year veteran of the #NYPD who is assigned to the 76th Precinct, was charged with two counts of possessing a s*xual performance by a child."
Mitchell Emile, 28, was arrested Friday after an Internal Affairs Bureau investigation led to the discovery of two videos on the Brooklyn cop’s cellphone depicting young boys in s*xual situations, authorities said.

287g Steering Committee
This was the LVMPD's saddest attempt at transparency yet. They scheduled a 2 hour public meeting to discuss Metro/ICE collusion instead it lasted all of 4 minutes. They were ORDERED by the Courts to hold these meetings in the interest of transparency and this is what the public gets?! 4 minutes of them patting themselves on the back talking about what a wonderful program it is? What a slap in the face. METRO IS A JOKE! Their "Public Information Office" is NOT in the business of providing the Public with Information. We have questions and we DEMAND answers.
From their own website:
( https://www.lvmpd.com/en-us/Pages/PublicNotices.aspx )
"The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Immigration And Customs Enforcement (ICE) will be holding a 287g Steering Committee meeting on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Headquarters, Building B, ACTION Conference room #111. LVMPD HQ is located at 400 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Las Vegas, NV. 89106. The meeting will be hosted by ICE/287g Program Manager Henry Yates. Topics for discussion will consist of 287g statistics, training for the Designated Immigration Officers (DIOs), media requests, and maintaining ICE computer systems access."
They literally didn't do ANYTHING described in their own agenda. They didn't provide the stats we were all waiting for. They didn't describe DIO training, they didn't provide any information to the media about media requests, and they didn't mention anything about maintaining ICE computer systems. Looks like the only cocktail that'll get these goons talking will be protests mixed with a tad of litigation...

Riddle me this, IS Speeding A CRIME?..... If someone is speeding and gets a ticket, who is the victim?.......... It would be like a person calling the police because someone walked by them and said, i want that person to be arrested because they could have robbed me, assaulted me, and even murdered me. Now, The police would ask them, well did they do any of that? And the person goes no, but the potential was there and they could have done those things. And the police would say, well, there was no crime and you were not a victim of any crime so there's nothing we can do. ...... But when it comes to speeding, where's there's no victim, you will get a ticket. Why? There were no victims in each case, so what's the different between the two?.... Because there's $$$ money $$$ to be made by giving out ticket, isn't there.
Byron Lee Williams, RIP
