After taking the advice of a good friend and near-future Op-Nat contributor, I took a month away from blogging to clear my head of the inevitable realities of our country. Perhaps I should have stayed away longer…
February turned out to be one of the most deadly months Operation Nation has ever seen, as the genocide against American citizens by savage police thugs continues unchecked by our alleged “government.” Though we count at least 11 murders by police thugs last month, here are three of the most inexcusable (with all due respect to the families of the victims this article does not cover).
We first visit the murder of unarmed Mr. Nicholas Eugene Scott, the 23-year-old Sanford, FL man, on Friday, February 19. Mr. Scott was murdered in cold blood by Sanford (FL) police thug Steven Lynch, after Lynch says Mr. Scott “was about to run over” some other cop with his car. Of course no witnesses saw any of this (except the police thugs). Mr. Scott’s cousin, Shiyann McGill said there were no bullet holes in the front of her cousin’s car…meaning he was likely shot in the back.
Thug Lynch was rewarded with a paid vacation. Euro-American media and the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement are justifying the murder, saying Mr. Scott was “a convicted felon” and “a fugitive.” On a side note, Bella Vista (AR) thug cop Coleman Brackney, Rockford (IL) thug cop Oda Poole, and LeSueur County (MN) thug cop Todd Waldron all murdered Americans citizens, thus using cop logic, all of them should be murdered immediately.
Kansas City police thugs murdered unarmed, 19-year-old Jessica Jones on Tuesday, February 23. Police allege Ms. Jones was “driving a stolen vehicle” and “tried to run them over,” which prompted four Kansas City police thugs to shoot the young woman 14 times. Once again, all of the police thugs were rewarded with paid vacations, and Euro-American media justified the murder, saying Ms. Jones had a “criminal history.” Ms. Jones lost both of her parents when she was five years old. She is described by her grandmother, Ms. Dorothy Leach, as “one of a kind.” Ms. Leach is also wondering (as all of us are) why the police thugs shot this young woman 14 times.
Mr. Warren Lawrence, 29, was murdered in cold blood in the inbred cop capital of the country (Louisiana), on February 9 by Lake Charles police thugs. The dispatch records from the night describe the premeditated murder by thug inbred Lake Charles cop Dustin Fontenot.
Thug Fontenot arrived on the scene of an alleged burglary call at 7:13pm, more than 20 minutes after another cop named “Cook” had already been there and said everything was all clear. Two minutes later, “Cook” reported shots fired and said a “black male” had entered the home they were checking on. Thug Fontenot, obviously desperate to dress the scene, told other responding officers to “slow it down” while they were en route to the home after he murdered Mr. Lawrence. Fontenot was rewarded with a paid vacation.
The Lake Charles police savages are using the proverbial “he had a gun” speel, even though Mr. Lawrence’s mother and sister said he did not own a gun. Euro-American media are of course using the “he had a criminal record” speel to justify the murder. Mr. Lawrence leaves behind two young children who will now grow up without a father. His fiancee, Ms. Jessica Lemos, is now in the unenviable position of trying to figure out what to tell the children when they ask where there father is.
Our thoughts are with all the families of the victims. And once again, I must warn American citizens to arm yourselves and NEVER call police for ANYTHING if you value your life.
I know what you mean my brother was murdered by the Highway Patrol Feb.4, 2010 @ 1:30 am. , He was unarmed, had no record, was on vacation from Little Rock Ak., just walking down the access road, no drugs, sober. He was beaten brutally and tased and killed then autopsied before any one even notified us that he was dead. As if that’s not enough they wouldn’t let us see the body to identify if it was even him, they kept the body for longer than the law allows! My brother Mark Andrew Morse was here to introduce his soon to be wife to our mother Mon. Feb. 1st 2010 and was killed on the 4th with not even so much as a some what reasonable explanation. They didn’t even notify the press until the Feb. 8th because they are or were trying to just sweep this under the mat and I’m sorry but that is absolutely unexceptable. These so called law enforcement officers are supposed to protect and serve the public, not act just like the the people they are supposed to protect us from. We pay them with our tax dollars for god’s sake their children are provided for because our taxes pay them to do their job with dignity and respect because we trust them. This is not right that unnamed officer should be sitting in jail because you can’t just kill innocent citizens and hide behind your badge who the hell are you protecting anyway.Because I DON’T feel safe and if this is the way of the future then how the hell can any one feel that their children are safe on the streets and why are you receiving a pay check when your a bigger criminal than the people you arrest. If the Police / DPS in Phx. Az. can just be the judge, jury, and executioner because they wear a badge Democracy has failed and we should just keep our tax dollars and protect ourself. So who’s gonna be held accountable for Mark’s murder?? The county medical examiner still say’s he doesn’t or can’t give a cause for death what a professional cover up that is, my brother has already been buried and he was breathing fine before he took a walk. People if this doesn’t open your eye’s and scare the hell out of you then you must not be breathing any more or you just like throwing away your tax dollars. I guess you can just flip a coin cause you could be the next citizen protected and served up to the morg dissected by a specialist in his field to be told there’s no apparent reason or explanation that you now have to live in a box 6 feet under ground but thank you for your tax dollars… Thank You For your Attention R.David Morse
II. On Civil and Political Rights
In the United States, civil and political rights of citizens are severely restricted and violated by the government.
The country’s police frequently impose violence on the people. Chicago Defender reported on July 8, 2009 that a total of 315 police officers in New York were subject to internal supervision due to unrestrained use of violence during law enforcement. The figure was only 210 in 2007. Over the past two years, the number of New York police officers under review for garnering too many complaints was up 50 percent (http://www.chicagodefender.com). According to a New York Police Department firearms discharge report released on Nov. 17, 2009, the city’ s police fired 588 bullets in 2007, killing 10 people, and 354 bullets in 2008, killing 13 people (http://gothamist.com, November 17, 2009). On September 3, 2009, a student of the San Jose State University was hit repeatedly by four San Jose police officers with batons and a Taser gun for more than ten times (http://www.mercurynews.com, October 27, 2009). On September 22, 2009, a Chinese student in Eugene, Oregon was beaten by a local police officer for no reason (The Oregonian, October 23, 2009, http://blog.oregonlive.com). According to the Amnesty International, in the first ten months of 2009, police officers in the U.S. killed 45 people due to unrestrained use of Taser guns. The youngest of the victims was only 15. From 2001 to October, 2009, 389 people died of Taser guns used by police officers (http://theduckshoot.com).
Abuse of power is common among U.S. law enforcers. In July 2009, the Federal Bureau of Investigation put four police officers in the Washington area under investigation for taking money to protect a gambling ring frequented by some of the region’s most powerful drug dealers over the past two years (The Washington Post, July, 19, 2009). In September 2009, an off-duty police officer in Chicago attacked a bus driver for “cutting him off in traffic” as he rode a bicycle (Chicago Tribune, September 2009, http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com). In the same month, four former police officers in Chicago were charged with extorting close to 500,000 U.S. dollars from a Hispanic driving an expensive car with out-of-state plates and suspected drug dealers in the name of law enforcement, and offering bribes to their superiors (Chicago Tribune, September 19, 2009). In November 2009, a former police chief of the Prince George’s County’s town of Morningside was charged with selling a stolen gun to a civilian (The Washington Post, November 18, 2009). In major U.S. cities, police stop, question and frisk more than a million people each year – a sharply higher number than just a few years ago (http://huffingtonpost.com, October 8, 2009).
Prisons in the United State are packed with inmates. According to a report released by the U.S. Justice Department on Dec. 8, 2009, more than 7.3 million people were under the authority of the U.S. corrections sy
system population increased by 0.5 percent in 2008 compared with the previous year (http://www.wsws.org). About 2.3 million were held in custody of prisons and jails, the equivalent of about one in every 198 persons in the country. From 2000 to 2008, the U.S. prison population increased an average of 1.8 percent annually (http://mensnewsdaily.com, January 18, 2010). The California government even suggested sending tens of thousands of illegal immigrants held in the state to Mexico, in order to ease its overcrowded prison system (http://news.yahoo.com, January 26, 2010).
The basic rights of prisoners in the United States are not well-protected. Raping cases of inmates by prison staff members are widely reported. According to the U.S. Justice Department, reports of sexual misconduct by prison staff members with inmates in the country’s 93 federal prison sites doubled over the past eight years. Of the 90 staff members prosecuted for sexual abuse of inmates, nearly 40 percent were also convicted of other crimes (The Washington Post, September11, 2009). The New York Times reported on June 24, 2009 that according to a federal survey of more than 63,000 federal and state inmates, 4.5 percent reported being sexually abused at least once during the previous 12 months. It was estimated that there were at least 60,000 rapes of prisoners across the United States during the same period (The New York Times, June 24, 2009).
Chaotic management of prisons in the United State also led to wide spread of diseases among the inmates. According to a report from the U.S. Justice Department, a total of 20,231 male inmates and 1,913 female inmates had been confirmed as HIV carriers in the U.S. federal and state prisons at yearend 2008. The percentage of male and female inmates with HIV/AIDS amounted to 1.5 and 1.9 percent respectively (http://www.news-medical.net, December 2, 2009). From 2007 to 2008, the number of HIV/AIDS cases in prisons in California, Missouri and Florida increased by 246, 169, and 166 respectively. More than 130 federal and state inmates in the U.S. died of AIDS-related causes in 2007 (http://thecrimereport.org, December 2, 2009). A report by the Human Rights Watch released in March 2009 said although the New York State prison registered the highest number of prisoners living with HIV in the country, it did not provide the inmates with adequate access to treatment, and even locked the inmates up separately, refusing to provide them with treatment of any kind. (http://www.hrw.org, March 24, 2009).
While advocating “freedom of speech,” “freedom of the press” and “Internet freedom,” the U.S. government unscrupulously monitors and restricts the citizens’ rights to freedom when it comes to its own interests and needs.

The U.S. government held more than 600 prisoners at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. A United Nations report singled out the Bagram detention facility for criticism, saying some ex-detainees allege being subjected to severe torture, even sexual abuse, and some prisoners put under detention for as long as five years. It also reported that some were held in cages containing 15 to 20 men and that two detainees died in questionable circumstances while in custody (IPS, New York, February 25, 2009). An investigation by U.S. Justice Department showed 2,000 Taliban surrendered combatants were suffocated to death by the U.S. army-controlled Afghan armed forces (http://www.yourpolicicsusa.com, July 16, 2009).
The United States has been building its military bases around the world, and cases of violation of local people’s human rights are often seen. The United States is now maintaining 900 bases worldwide, with more than 190,000 military personnel and 115,000 relevant staff stationed. These bases are bringing serious damage and environmental contamination to the localities. Toxic substances caused by bomb explosions are taking their tolls on the local children. It has been reported that toward the end of the U.S. military bases’ presence in Subic and Clark, as many as 3,000 cases of raping the local women had been filed against the U.S. servicemen, but all were dismissed (http://www.lexisnexis.com, May 17, 2009).
The United States ignores international human rights conventions, and takes a passive attitude toward international human rights obligations. It signed the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights 32 years ago and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women 29 years ago, but has ratified neither of them yet. It has not ratified the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities either. On Sept. 13, 2007, the 61st UN General Assembly voted to adopt the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which has been the UN’s most authoritative and comprehensive document to protect the rights of indigenous peoples. The United States also refused to recognize the declaration.
The above-mentioned facts show that the United States not only has a bad domestic human rights record, but also is a major source of many human rights disasters around the world. For a long time, it has placed itself above other countries, considered itself “world human rights police” and ignored its own serious human rights problems
the U.S. government still ignores its own serious human rights problems but revels in accusing other countries. It is really a pity.
We hereby advise the U.S. government to draw lessons from the history, put itself in a correct position, strive to improve its own human rights conditions and rectify its acts in the human rights field.

I believe in Karma. These cops will have to live with their dark secrets every day and night for the rest of their lives. It’ll come back around. It will.
