The Great Foreshadowing of 1985

The Great Foreshadowing of 1985 published on

The whole Christopher Dorner thing has led to some alternative media mentions of the MOVE bombing back in 1985, so I thought this a good time to do a quick recap of that sign of things to come. Oh, and as for Dorner? Good fucking riddance. You want to kill corrupt Stormtroopers? Go ahead, make my day (heh, heh.) You want to kill civilians for the sin of being related to a Stormtrooper? You can burn in hell, though a cabin will do just as well…

MOVE was a black radical group led by a man called John Africa, some sort of hippie type thing except with not much inclination to believe that niceness can change the world. MOVE had had conflicts with the Philadelphia police force since the early 1970s, and in ’78 things came to a head when the Stormtroopers raided the group’s home. The result was a shootout that led to seven cops making unexpected trips to the hospital and to an eighth making an unexpected trip to the local mortuary. The bad blood had just gotten worse, and it wouldn’t end there.

For next few years, trouble stayed on the small side, with various members of MOVE being charged with arms offences, making terrorist threats etc., then once again the cops decided to raid the group’s home. Not being keen on authoritarian measures, the group resisted and another gunfight ensued. After several water cannons and 10,000 bullets failed to bring the radicals out into the open, the cops decided to do what any sensible, rational adult would do – they dropped a bomb on the building! I kid you not, they improvised a bomb from several pounds of plastic explosive and Tovex, took it up in a helicopter and dropped it on the house!

The house burst into fire, and as it burnt down and those inside tried to escape the flames the cops did what any honorable man would do – they shot them dead. I don’t know if that included the several children killed in the incident, but call me cynical for having no trouble imagining such cops shooting dead kids trying to flee a fire. At the end of the siege, only one woman and one 13 year old boy were still alive. The house itself had burnt to the ground – thanks in part to the fire brigade sitting on their fire hoses for over an hour after arriving at the scene – as had 65 other homes! I am assuming the authorities had the sense to evacuate the surrounding buildings, if only because there are no reports of deaths from the collateral damage, though it was a black neighborhood so one has to wonder just how unintended said damage was. There was an investigation which, despite being carried out by the same system that depends on cops for its survival, found nobody guilty of anything. Except for the woman who survived – she got seven years in jail for failing to die as planned.

Will it happen again? Well, of course it will, hence the title. Hell, it’s already happened again at Waco, and with 9/11 being used to justify anything as long as it is in defense of the plutocracy you can bet your ass that the American public hasn’t seen the last of this kind of atrocity – the only difference is that next time it won’t be a helicopter dropping the bomb, it will be a drone, and the order won’t come from some hot headed cop with shit for brains, it will come from some Ivy League educated  asshole in the White House.

More on this charming bit of Americana below. Disregard the bit about the 25th anniversary, the video is a couple of years old.

Dumbass L.A Cops Can’t Tell Male from Female

Dumbass L.A Cops Can’t Tell Male from Female published on

They aren’t too good at telling black from Hispanic and big from small, either!

In a startling show of incompetence, LA cops hunting down a 6’4” 270lb black man and former officer wanted for shooting some of his fellow Stormtroopers have started shooting civilians. Cops being cops one might expect them to be shooting every black male they run into, but no, these guys are mistaking small Hispanic women for large black men!

Apparently, two Hispanic women were delivering newspapers in a pickup truck when the filth spotted their vehicle. Since there is only one pickup truck in the whole of California, the cops decided they had found their man and without any warning unleashed a hail of bullets that left not only the truck but also nearby homes riddled with bullets. Thanks to the officers’ poor marksmanship neither woman was killed, though one was shot twice in the back and the other once in the hand. As if one idiotic case of mistaken identity wasn’t enough, less than half an hour later some other cops opened fire on yet another pickup truck. No one was hurt, but it is rumored that the person driving that vehicle was a white male – and probably a midget, at that.

Perhaps not being keen to place too much faith in the police force being able to control itself, some of the local TV stations decided to tell Californians to not drive any pickup trucks! They should have also warned them not to be black and male in any public places.

And if you think I’ve been unpleasant to the plutocracy’s enforcers up till now, here’s what I really think. These bastards are trying to play executioner. They see a vehicle they think is carrying the wanted man so they immediately open fire in the hopes of shooting him dead without having to bother with trivial things like trials. Shocking, if not unprecedented, behavior – just ask Barack Obama.

Anonymous Hacks U.S Sentencing Commission

Anonymous Hacks U.S Sentencing Commission published on

Hacktivist group Anonymous have hacked into website of the U.S. Sentencing Commission as revenge for the death of Aaron Swartz, the young internet activist recently driven to suicide by the Amerikan Empire’s draconian (and conveniently applied) laws.

The group is making several demands and threaten to release secret information if the demands are not met. The files containing the information are named after the Empire’s Supreme Court justices and are apparently encrypted, with the group saying it will soon release the encryption keys. We have not been given any clues about what is in the files. It could be the kind of thing that would make Watergate look small, or it could be photos of politicians humping sheep, or it could all be a huge con. Only time will tell.

Below is a video posted on the hacked site’s front page, and below that is a screengrab of the entire page just as it appeared after the hack ( the black space is where the video used to be, for some reason it didn’t turn up in the grab). The text is for the most part a transcript of the video, with a bit added at the bottom about how they made the entire site editable. Right click and “view image” for the full size version. Needless to say, I wait with bated breath for the next development.

A novel new way to harass the police

A novel new way to harass the police published on

In a horrifying new trend, young men in the southern states of the US are traumatizing brave and noble officers of the law by shooting themselves in the head.

Yes, the little bastards are allowing the Stormtroopers to cuff them and place them in their cop cars before horrifying the officers by pulling out a handgun and shooting themselves in the head. How much do you have to hate the cops to want to traumatize them this way? To go to the trouble of shooting yourself while your hands are cuffed behind your back? The contortions that must take! And being able to hide the gun so expertly that even the cops missed its presence, these bastards must be spending a lot of time reading books on sleight of hand – all so they can make a mess in the back of a cop car. Disgusting.
