END State Sanctioned Sexual Assault, Rape Culture and Law Enforcement Impunity

The San Diego police department’s scandal involving officers accused of preying on women who they came in contact with while in uniform and on duty. … We deserve to be safe. The recurrences of sexual assault committed by the above named officers as well as the investigation of San Diego police department’s facility concluded that we are not. Putting a woman or anyone in a position where they are LEGALLY sexually violated UNDER ANY THREAT should never happen. These THREATS are also in the form of entrapment by undercover police officers who are ALLOWED to lie, engage in sexual and illegal activities in an attempt to further incriminate the victim by either to face jail or deportation. The same applies to strip searches, stop and frisk procedures as well as intimate partner violence committed at a rate HIGHER than that of the general public, all while under the impunity protected by law enforcement’s blue code of silence; a brotherhood they hold protecting their own perpetrators who serve in the force.

  1. Q

    I’m dismayed but not surprised about this. For quite a long tine now all you needed to do is type “sexual misconduct by police “ as your search parameters in Google and you come up with page after page of examples of all rank’s of police officers all across the country doing everything they condemn us for. Some of us may have committed some of these crimes (one time), but statistics prove that it’s usually the only time it will ever happen with us. The police in this article are repeat offenders, in their jargon they would be called; “predators.” I believe this is because these officers lacked integrity and abused their position of public trust to satisfy their perverted nature.

    I believe the problem of sexual abuse, assaults etc by police is a lot more common that some would like the public to know. Law enforcement’s blue code of silence (I first heard of this in the 70’s) makes this possible and makes many others in uniform guilty by not reporting the crimes. The article, first posted in SOSEN and then posted here by willb “who really commits new sex crimes” is a real eye opener on sex crimes by police. His article is not cited but his sources are easily followed. If anyone has any doubts about this all they need do is consider a simple truth; if you see one cockroach in the kitchen, guess what…… I think the implication is clear.

    • Q

      Now I’m wondering how many cops feel like hypocrites as they are addressing groups of kids and their parents, possibly as they are scanning the crowd for anyone they think is vulnerable, or as they tell the news media about their latest efforts to make sure people on the registry won’t re offend as they set out to see how many they can lock up for any reason, real or imagined. Or if they just feel like the law doesn’t apply to them.

    I’m always bothered by the media using the term “rogue” officers, whenever something like this comes out. The media’s job is to report the facts, not jump to any conclusions. I’ve never heard of a registrant who re-offends refereed to as “rogue”, even though that is a verifiable fact.
    I guess the local media think they are doing a public service by minimizing any potential fear the public may feel when confronted by such stories. Or may they just want to keep the flow of videos depicting police apprehending criminals going to keep ratings up. That being said, trust of police is an important element in keeping law and order. Who would want to call the police for help, when in the back of your mind you fear what the police officer may do to you. Is this one of the “rogues” or is this one of the honest ones? Trust is important, but it must be earned, not manufactured by the media. The communist states of Eastern Europe and the dictatorships of Egypt, Syria, fell, I believe, because the police earned the title “bad guys”, despite the government propaganda that constantly built up the police force image — to no affect, except to anger the population living in constant fear of the police.
    The media needs to do its job and not just say the police chief is looking into this and making some changes. Maybe the changes are superficial. For example, look into what extent the courts are either circumscribing or encouraging the violations of human rights by police. Delve into what conditions make the abuse of power likely. Is it too much stress? Is it lack of over sight? Is it really just a few bad actors? Give us some facts, so we can make informed decisions about what the police are doing or not doing. Don’t say it is a “culture of sexual violence” and then put in a woman police chief in charge to show the “culture” has changed. That explains nothing to me. Independent monitors overseen by a court, employing experts in human relations and constitutional rights– now that might have some teeth and create real public confidence.

    • Q

      Hi Tim, How’s it going?;

      I’ve noticed the media invariably put’s a sensational spin on any story that will keep the public’s attention, which translates into $$$$ and approval for them. The media sold out years ago and now is basically a mouthpiece for politicians and others of influence. I’ve also noticed the media always takes the popular position, be it right or wrong, good or bad. I’ve just read an article by Glenn Greenwald that exposes just how much of a whore the media is. In the article Greenwald talks about clear cut proof he got from the documents leaked by Snowden that James Clapper personally calls the largest media outlets and tells them what they can and cannot report to the public. In effect Clapper has made him self the national editor in chief. This is censorship.

      Excerpt: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article37749.htm

      “This process of pre-publication notice to the government of NSA stories has been wildly misreported in some places. I’ve long expressed contempt for this process where it results in the suppression of information that should be public; where it essentially elevates U.S. officials into publication partners by engaging in protracted “negotiations” with them over what can and cannot be published; and especially where it means news organizations knowingly allow government officials to lie by withholding the actual facts.”

      I have a strong feeling that this has been going on for much (years) longer than 8 months and I also believe allot more people in government do this; not just Clapper.

      I’ve known very few people that would call the police for anything, not even to report a crime. I know I wouldn’t – not for any reason. My first experience with police happened in the early 60’s. I was a 5yo walking to school with several other children, and out of nowhere a cop came, almost running up to us yelling and screaming at us. Why? I have no idea to this day. I think he did not like children that were not 100% Caucasian; but that is just a guess. It totally upset me and I recall feeling sick and upset the entire day. And then being arrested for a “sex” crime that didn’t involve sex, or another human being for that matter, and learning what I have learned about our government/police and seeing where it’s going. So no, I don’t trust the police, never have, never will, and there are many more like me.

      In you’r post you say;

      “ The communist states of Eastern Europe and the dictatorships of Egypt, Syria, fell, I believe, because the police earned the title “bad guys”, despite the government propaganda that constantly built up the police force image — to no affect, except to anger the population living in constant fear of the police. “

      which is probably true. The police here are widely considered the “bad guy”, and that’s probably because they are the ones that carry out the human right’s violation’s/laws that are becoming more numerous by the day and many times made law and put into practice with lies and deception/manipulation of the belief’s of the masses. I don’t think there will be a take over by the people (just look at all the restrictions on gun’s and gun ownership) because, unbeknownst to most, the government here has considered this a possibility and knows it’s because of what they do. They have been planning for this eventuality for years now.

      Take a look at this:

      http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article37691.htm

      This is not a culture of “sexual violence”; This is a culture of deception and manipulation.

      • Tim

        Hi Q. It’s going. Not feeling entirely articulate today, but here goes.
        I’ve been keeping track of this same information you posted. One thing I would like to add. The population would probably rebel anyway, if not for one thing: the governments use of the bogeymen to divert attention from what is really going on. Very effective, like enemies of the Party used by Big Brother in Orwell’s 1984 and the deviants rooted out by the Junior Anti Sex League, also in that tale. The external and internal threats. Real life equivalents are terrorists and sex offenders. Don’t know if Greenwald or Assange have mentioned that connection, except maybe the terrorist connection. Surprised they haven’t caught on to that. The sexual deviant scare is much stronger now than that of the terrorists. As you alluded to, the population is very insecure right now. The family is breaking down due to greater economic insecurity, brought on by world economic policies that inflate income disparity. That insecurity is very easy to manipulate. Just point out there is a sex offender in your neighborhood. Everyone’s children are now in danger, so we need greater government control. Liberals, conservatives, flock to the banner and pledge their allegiance to more restrictive laws. Loosen the Constitutional restrictions on one despised group of citizens and it becomes precedent for dealing with other less despised groups. Conversely, break down the stereotypes and the oppressive system loses is fuel.

        • Q

          Hi Tim, or should I say fellow constitutionalist/domestic extremest, per the leaked document.

          I’m glad you are keeping a finger on the pulse of our own top heavy and out of control government; there are literally millions that haven’t a clue as to what’s going on around them, and worse yet, they don’t care. Now that I have had a minute to think about it, I’m more inclined to agree with your take on things, and it only makes sense that orchestrated diversions/deceptions, spread through the government mouth piece, the media, is the only thing keeping the public in check and their attention diverted.

          This is mass manipulation. I’ve read several studies on this matter (manipulation through the media) but can’t seem to locate them (imagine that! Censorship!). It’s the same thing that is going on with the sexual predator scare/myth; it’s a diversion/deception. I think I can say that with a reasonable degree of confidence when I look at the empirical evidence and weigh it against what the masses are being fed. It’s a means to an end. The two just don’t add up; I’m much more inclined to agree with a scholarly study than I am with a politician or bureaucrat.

          Further proof of diversion/deception tactics is when Egypt and Libya, as well as several other lesser nations, were taken over by the people a few years back; remember when Gaddafi was killed? At this time I was keeping track of the unfolding situation by way of foreign non domestic news services that had people on the ground in these hot spots. There were interviews with some of the freedom fighters that were fighting against many of the things you and I experience here that they were being subject to in their homelands. They were calling on all oppressed people in the world to rise up, and they were also wondering what was wrong with the Americans. They were asking why we the people were not joining in and rising up. They could not understand. But I think I understand and I think you do too.

          It’s called apathy. Most people are so brainwashed into believing the government will keep them safe they don’t notice America and the freedoms that come with being an American is all being dismantled, piece by piece, many times using our own laws and legal system against us. As long as they have a little money to make their interest payments with some left over for a weekend get away they don’ want to be concerned with the bigger picture. They, too have been sold a false sense of security, just as those that believe these ineffective laws against registrants will keep them safe. It’s all a lie.

        • Tim

          Ah! Seeing the big picture. That means putting our small part in it in perspective with the whole. Books are probably the best source of detailed, well thought out information. But I have little time to read many books or look into too many studies. I’ve got a mortgage I’m carrying on my back and a son to get through college. Not a bad situation and would be tough enough without the registry in background. I grew up in a time when it was important to be a citizen not just another consumer of whatever crap they are selling, including what is now the packaged news. To be a citizen to me means being informed and having an informed opinion. And acting on it. It is a right and a responsibility. And the media used to be there to inform and educate the hard working people who didn’t have the time to delve into all the intricacies of the big picture. Maybe that is nostalgia on my part. There has always been mass manipulation, it just that the technology has improved. And there has always been people holding the powers that be to account. Some are better at it than others or in a better situation to make a difference.

          Hi Tim:

          I remember those days. I miss them too.

          A couple of fitting quotes.

          ‘If you think there is freedom of the press in the United States, I tell you there is no freedom of the press… They come out with the cheap shot. The press should be ashamed of itself. They should come to both sides of the issue and hear both sides and let the American people make up their minds’ – Bill Moyers

          “Without an unfettered press, without liberty of speech, all of the outward forms and structures of free institutions are a sham, a pretense — the sheerest mockery. If the press is not free; if speech is not independent and untrammeled; if the mind is shackled or made impotent through fear, it makes no difference under what form of government you live, you are a subject and not a citizen” – William E.
          Borah

          “When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects,
          This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the
          end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.” –

          Robert A. Heinlein

      • Tim

        Culture is too good a word for it. The sex offender hysteria comes from the base of the scull, the primal fear of the outsider. Culture exists when everyone feels loved and respected.

  3. Bluewall

    Lets get some men and women in their uniforms on the “Web Site” mawhahaha

    • Tim

      That would really be a slap in the face of fairness if these offenders in blue didn’t get put on the registry.

  4. Brubaker

    Yesterday’s news…five SanFrancisco cops were indited for falsifying evidence to cover-up misconduct……..should the federales head south on the 5 they could see some court personnel did the same.
