"Only because we're seeing it now on these cell phone cameras and video capturing it with this new technology today, that law enforcement wasn't expecting to expose them. But that 'blue wall of silence' – they have been doing this to people for years. This is an everyday occurrence."

– Matthew Fogg, retired chief deputy U.S. Marshal, on police misconduct he's witnessed as a former law enforcement officer

Culture of Impunity a Toxic Element Contributing to Police Violence

MP3 Interview with Matthew Fogg, retired chief deputy U.S. Marshal, conducted by Scott Harris

beating

Over the past week, the nation has witnessed three incidents of grossly excessive police violence, which in two instances, resulted in the death of unarmed African-American men. In an April 2 sting operation gone wrong in Tulsa, Oklahoma, an untrained 73-year-old white reserve deputy police officer, Robert Bates, shot and killed suspected gun trafficker Eric Courtney Harris as he fled the scene of the undercover operation. Bates has since been charged with manslaughter. Several days later on April 5, Walter Scott, who was stopped in North Charleston, South Carolina. for a broken tail light, was shot to death by white policeman Michael Slager as Scott ran away from the officer. Slager is charged with murder and has been fired by the police department. In another incident on April 9, Francis Pusok, an unarmed white man who fled police officers serving a warrant, first in a car – and then on horseback, was severely beaten by ten San Bernardino, California sheriff’s deputies after he had surrendered. The ten deputies involved have been placed on paid administrative leave.  Story continues

Deep Tax Cuts for Corporations and the Rich Create Unfair Tax System for Poor and Working Families

MP3 Interview with Matthew Gardner, executive director of the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, conducted by Scott Harris

wealth

With Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, the party leadership is moving to adopt legislation in keeping with its long-held support for trickle-down economics, a belief that giving the nation’s wealthiest citizens and giant corporations ever larger tax breaks will incentivize investment and result in a stronger economy and the creation of new jobs. But most mainstream economists have long ago debunked this theory, promoted largely by the super wealthy, the politicians they fund and paid lobbyists.  Story continues
