Man Admits To Plotting To Massacre Muslims, Judge Sets Him Free Anyway




Robert Rankin Doggart, a former candidate for Congress, admitted in federal court to “plotting the annihilation” of a village in New York that is home to many Muslims. Doggart’s plans included “burning down a school, a mosque and a cafeteria,” according to the criminal complaint.

“We’re gonna be carrying an M4 with 500 rounds of ammunition, light armor piercing. A pistol with three extra magazines, and a machete. And if it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds,” Doggart allegedly said according to the transcript of a wiretap cited in the complaint. He also allegedly tried to recruit other individuals to participate in his plot through a Facebook group.

As part of a plea agreement, Doggart pled guilty to “interstate communication of threats” and faces up to five years in prison. He was in jail awaiting final sentencing.

But a federal judge, Curtis Collier, may not accept the guilty plea. He’s ordered the prosecution and defense to produce briefs proving that Doggart was a “true threat.” Meanwhile, a different federal judge, Magistrate Susan K. Lee, released Doggart from jail “into the custody of two family members.”

Lee had previously found that Doggart was a “danger to the community.” The government appealed the decision to release Doggart to Judge Collier, who affirmed Lee’s decision.

New Mexico Cops Bummed They Can't Just Steal People's Money Anymore

Asset forfeiture has accounted for more than 20% of police dept. operating budgets—and that's now banned.

By Phillip Smith


A New Mexico law that has just gone into effect bars police from seizing people's property without first convicting them of a crime, and the cops are already complaining. Equally bad, the cops say, is that when seizures are allowed, the money will now go to the state's general fund instead of to the law enforcement agency that seized it.

As the Farmington Daily Times reported, law enforcement is already yearning for the good old days. Without that incentive, they may just seize less stuff, and they might even reduce drug law enforcement, they said.

"We're going to try not to seize," said Farmington Police Chief Steve Hebbe, warning that "I don't think that they anticipated how much it's going to hit local law enforcement, and we're still trying to figure out how bad it's going to hit us."

Old Man Stopped By Cops For Driving 5 MPH Under Speed Limit, Beat Up And Falsely Accused Of Resisting Wins Case posted 07/16/2015, 1:42 PM (Courthouse News Service)
Orr.jpgSACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) - A federal judge has upheld a verdict in favor of a 78-year-old who was disabled by a stroke and had been a model citizen until he was stopped by two young California Highway Patrol officers for driving five miles under the speed limit. In the course of arresting the disabled man, one officer punched him in the gut, knocked him to the ground and then falsely accused him of resisting arrest.

"The verdict was vindication of the obvious fact that, however they were trained, there was no need for a CHP officer to punch a harmless, disabled senior citizen," said attorney Michael Haddad on behalf of client, Harrison Orr.

Orr sued California, its highway patrol, and CHP officers Jay Brame and Terry Plumb, seeking over a 2013 traffic stop. He was 76 at the time.

Suffering from slurred speech and balancing problems due to a stroke, Orr was pulled over because he was driving too slow. Although Orr told officers that he did not drink or use drugs, and that a stroke had left him with slurred speech and unable to balance well, the officers subjected him to two field sobriety tests.

A breathalyzer test then confirmed that Orr had not had any alcohol. But the officers decided to arrest him anyway, saying he might be on drugs. Orr initially cooperated with the arrest, but objected when the officers wanted to handcuff him, citing his balance problems. In an attempt to handcuff Orr, the two CHP officers grabbed him from either side and Plumb punched him in the stomach, knocking hime to the ground.

Orr was taken to the CHP office where another official determined that his slurred speech and balance problems were due to a medical condition and not drug use. But the CHP accused him anyway of resisting arrest. The local district attorney then decided not to prosecute beca... (more)

Police Dept Caught Giving Preference to Job Candidates who Said they Wouldn't Arrest Fellow Cops posted 07/16/2015, 1:40 PM (The Free Thought Project)
cops-hire-corrupt-cops.jpgMethuen, MA — In what can only be described as a “see, I told you so” moment for those in the police accountability sector, a police department in Massachusetts has been caught in a perfidious hiring scheme. They were giving preference to job candidates who said they wouldn’t arrest fellow cops.

In other words, the Methuen police department was only hiring cops who promised to be corrupt and cover for their fellow corrupt officers.

According to the Boston Globe, ... (more)

Cop Writes Letter Thanking Dept for His 3 Years of Paid Suspension, Called it 'A Dream Come True'

By Matt Agorist
Cop-Writes-Letter-Thanking-Dept-for-the-Waterloo, ON — Waterloo Regional Police officer, Craig Markham was criminally charged and convicted of breach of trust in October of 2012. However, he was not fired because he appealed the ruling and, instead, was placed on paid administrative leave. For the next three years, Markham continued to draw his $90,348 annual salary — he would never work another day.

Markham was so grateful to his former employers that he wrote a letter enthusiastically thanking them for his years-long paid vacation.

"I am very thankful and fortunate to have received such a nice gift from WRPS over the last three years. You have opened up other doors for me and have paid me to sit back and watch. What a dream come trueCraig Markham wrote in an email on March 27 addressed to the police service's solicitor.

His letter apparently agitated Police Chief Bryan Larkin, who called Markham’s letter a mockery of the judicial system.

"He (Markham) mocks what is supposed to be a fair and judicial system," Larkin said in an interview.

However, the real mockery of the judicial system is a cop who can be convicted of a crime, only to be given a paid three-year vacation.

"It sends a bad message to the community," Larkin said.

"More importantly, it harms and takes away from the incredible work of the 760 officers who are out there every day putting their lives at risk."

"It's an abuse of system and I believe the system needs to be changed," Larkin said.

Oddly enough, Markham was serious when he wrote the letter, and is upset that Larkin made it public.

"I think it's disgusting that Bryan Larkin released my email," Markham told the Police Services Board meeting on Wednesday. "He is using me as a scapegoat."

In the email, Markham explained how nice it was to receive his full pay and benefits without having to work.

"So really I was in no rush. Timing couldn't have been better," said Markham, who then said he had been "down south" playing golf and "hanging out on the beach using some of that WRPS sick bank payout."

Markham’s words, while claimed as offensive by his superiors in public, likely resonate with cops across the country who enjoy the luxury of paid vacations while being investigated for their criminal behavior.

Standard procedure, even for cops who kill unarmed people on video, is suspension which is often paid. No other profession in the world offers the option of drawing a paycheck after your employers catch you committing a crime, outside of the state.

Markham’s letter should serve as a wake-up call to those who think that all cops get into the profession to serve and protect. This is incorrect, as we have proven time and again. Many of these cops get in the profession because it grants them a license to break the law with impunity, all the while collecting a taxpayer-funded pension.
