    Police allow car break-ins to become a Seattle growth industry

    If your car is broken into and your stuff stolen, don’t bother calling the police. They won’t come even if you track down the thieves yourself.

    Police cars that make sure cops don't break the law are coming in 2015

    According to at least one study, observing police officers on the job leads to a massive decrease in citizens making brutality complaints. Now that same philosophy is being taken with how officers drive their cars while on the job. Ford, makers of various Police Interceptor models, has developed a system that relays telematics of driver behavior directly back to HQ, presumably for a heavy-set officer to scream at them when they get back.

    A Staten Island grand jury cleared an NYPD cop in the chokehold death of Eric Garner during his caught-on-video arrest for peddling loose cigarettes, the Staten Island district attorney confirmed Wednesday. The panel voted a “no-bill” and dismissed all potential charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo. The blockbuster decision capped weeks of investigation by the special grand jury, which was empaneled in September specifically to review evidence in Garner’s racially charged death.

    Your telltale video camera shake can identify you

    HERE's a way to shake off anonymity – literally. Footage from wearable cameras contains a "motion signature" unique to you. The discovery could identify police wearing body cameras, but also let authorities single out protesters uploading footage, say. Shmuel Peleg and Yedid Hoshen at Israel's Hebrew University of Jerusalem collected footage from 34 people who wore GoPro cameras on baseball caps. They ran it through an algorithm that recognized motion signatures particular to each person.

Whereas white New Yorkers in Manhattan may not have enough interaction with the police to discern first-hand that drug arrests, low-level criminal summonses, and citations are on the decline, young black men in Bed-Stuy, a historically black Brooklyn neighborhood of high-rise public housing, low-rent row houses...

    New York Police Officers Are Quick to Resort to Chokeholds, Inspector General Finds

    The first investigation by New York City’s police inspector general includes the finding that in several cases where officers were found to have used a chokehold, the banned maneuver was the officer’s initial physical response to verbal resistance. The 45-page report, released on Monday, follows the death in July of Eric Garner on Staten Island after an arresting officer placed him in a chokehold, a tactic that was banned by the Police Department two decades ago.

    A Pickens County Sheriff's Office deputy has been fired after an internal investigation found his tasing of an unarmed man in a wheelchair was “inappropriate” and “unjustified.” “Gracious alive, why did they tase me? I wasn't a danger to them,” said 65-year-old Parker Mansell, Jr., who's been using a wheelchair to get around since a stroke left him paralyzed on the right side of his body 16 years ago.

The first-ever attempt by US record-keepers to estimate the number of uncounted “law enforcement homicides” exposed previous official tallies as capturing less than half of the real picture.

The headlines make it feel as if the country is experiencing an unprecedented wave of police violence, but experts say that isn't the case.

But I'm having trouble clearing my mind of those ugly scenes — and I know I'm not alone. Are these just individual cops gone rogue? Or are they the tip of a giant iceberg of on-duty misconduct?
