judoprepper Rp from @mediablackoutusa, thanks @stellar_star17 for the tag! | (CNN)Police in Arizona said Tuesday that an officer who intentionally used his car to run into a suspect with a rifle probably saved the man's life.

The man's lawyer strongly disagrees. Video of the incident has stirred debate about what type of force police should have used to detain a man with a gun. "Everything in the video seems to point towards an obvious excessive use of force. It is miraculous that my client isn't dead," said attorney Michelle Cohen-Metzger.

The incident was recorded February 19 on the dashcam of two Marana police cars that were following the suspect, 36-year-old Mario Valencia.

In one video, an officer who was tailing Valencia at slow speed reports over the radio that the suspect has fired one round in the air with a rifle he is accused of stealing that morning from a Walmart.

Another patrol car zooms past, runs into the man from behind then hits a short cinder block wall next to a driveway. Video from Officer Michael Rapiejko's camera shows the officer running the man over and the windshield smashing as the car hits the wall. "Oh Jesus Christ. Man down," the officer in the first car says.

Police in Marana, which is about a half-hour from Tucson, have justified Rapiejko's actions. "If we're going to choose between maybe we'll let him go a little bit farther and see what happens, or we're going to take him out now and eliminate any opportunity he has to hurt somebody, you're going to err on the side of, in favor of the innocent people," Police Chief Terry Rozema said. "Without a doubt." The situation warranted deadly force because the suspect was headed to an area where several hundred people were working, Rozema told CNN's Brooke Baldwin. "This officer made a split-second decision, and in retrospect, when all the dust clears, I think we look at this and say, yeah, there's things we can learn from this," he said, "but the entire community is safe, all the officers are safe, and even the suspect in this case is safe." Cohen-Metzger said officers didn't make any effort to de-escalate the situation of a man "clearly suicidal, clearly in crisis." -WTF?!?!?! #JudoPrepper

  •   buttersdaballer Hahaha I don't even know anything about pacquiao or mayweather, but it'll probably be a great fight 😬😀 4d
  •   judoprepper @buttersdaballer I didn't know he discharged his weapon. Also I wasn't talking about race. Criminal or not he's still entitled to due process. 4d
  •   judoprepper @northern_canadian_patriot so are you saying what the cops did was just and legal? 4d
  •   northern_canadian_patriot Legal, I don't know. Im Canadian, I dont know state laws of the US. Just, definitely. Who knows what the next move would have been for thjs guy. He prob wouldn't have shot a civilian but he might have shot a cop. Then the cops would have shot him. He would more then likely be dead if the cop didnt hit him with his car. Put yourself into a situation like that before you start bashing the police. Do you think this cop is happy he had to use near lethal force? I doubt it 3d
  •   judoprepper @northern_canadian_patriot that's a very consequentialist way of looking at it. As you stated 'who knows?' It's fair to say police officers aren't omniscient. In the full video when the cops approach him he doesn't point the gun at the cops. He points the gun to his own face. He later walks by a pedestrian and doesn't pose any type of threat to him either. So other than the police narrative how do you come to the conclusion that he 'could've' shot a cop or "would've" hurt a civilian? 3d
  •   buttersdaballer @judoprepper true, due process is very important for every successful jury system, however, in the case of imminent danger, due process may be an afterthought to diffusing the situation. Although this man showed more interest in general chaos than in random murder or harming others, he was still endangering the populace by firing into the air (unlikely, but it has killed people before) and firing at houses (unlike the previous offense, I haven't personally confirmed this) which of course would be quite obviously dangerous. 3d
  •   judoprepper @buttersdaballer I understand your point. I also agree that there may have been a chance he was endangering the populace by shooting in the air. I just disagree that this is the way to diffuse the situation.... Oh and Pacquiao will win!!!! 3d

The Governments War against Activists Continues.

REPORT:

An executive order signed by President Barack Obama gives the United States government the go-ahead to sanction suspected cyber-criminals with financial and travel restrictions amid a wave of high-profile hacks.

Citing the surge of assaults against the computer networks of US entities in recent months, Pres. Obama said Wednesday that he has declared a “national emergency” and accordingly authorized the US Treasury Department to sanction suspected hackers operating abroad in an effort to discourage future cyber-assaults.

On the heels of attacks suffered by Sony Pictures Entertainment, Target and a seemingly ever-expanding list of other victims as of late, this Obama administration newest effort is intended to amplify the government’s ability to go after hackers and deter future online assaults that may otherwise have crippling effects. Coupled with the Department of Justice’s recent promise to ramp-up its ability to counter foreign cyber-criminals through the creation of a new threat integration center, the latest memo from the White House reveals yet another option in the administration’s growing toolkit with regards to its ability to tackle malicious actors who operate online. The language included in this week’s directive is already raising concerns, however, and could be broad enough to give the federal government unmatched new powers in the digital realm.

Specifically, the order says an individual can be sanctioned if the government believes them to be involved in a cyberattack that harms, compromises or disrupts a computer network integral to critical US infrastructure.

Hey everyone this is major; we fought hard to prevent CISPA from passing the senate because it did pass the house. We fought from 2012 to 2013, people getting angry and standing up for it is what stopped CISPA from passing the senate. CISPA stands for cyber intelligence sharing and protection act. It would have massive privacy implications if it had passed.
I want to give everyone a heads up. THIS ZOMBIE BILL IS BACK! and RENAMED CISA. They dropped the "P" to make it different to resubmit it.
CISA (Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act) may even be worse. It's a bill made at the end of 2014 and it has not been voted on yet. Lets keep our eyes open on this and there will be more to come. - @anonymous4peace
