Gang Stalking databases, Tim Cushing, Techdirt.com covers community policing, aka organized gang stalking

Tim Cushing at Mike Masnicks Techdirt.com is consistently doing excellent reporting about organized gang stalking, aka Israelified/militarized community policing.

Here is a sample,for any journalist who wants a shot at my Gary Webb Award for Excellence in Gang Stalking reportage (military disinformation from private contractors in Kuwait, FBI DITU and DHS shills that includes DEWs, and other psychobabble will be rejected):

Chicago PD’s Gang Database Is A Horrific Mess Compiled By Horrific Public Servants

The City of Chicago’s Inspector General has released a hefty, disturbing report [PDF] on the Chicago PD’s gang database. This collection of people — all lumped together as gang members or associates — is shared with over 500 government agencies. Given this alarming fact, you’d think the CPD would be a bit more professional when compiling it. But you’d be wrong. The thing that leaps out immediately is how demeaning the database is, thanks to officers’ input.

[S]ome entries raise serious concerns about how CPD officers perceive and treat the people with whom they interact. OIG found that CPD officers entered occupations for individuals on gang arrest cards that included “SCUM BAG,” “BUM,” “CRIMINAL,” “BLACK,” “DORK,” “LOOSER [sic],” and “TURD.”

This epitome of community policing is being turned out on every governmental street corner. 500 agencies have made nearly one million inquiries of this finely-sourced database over the past decade. Whatever they were looking for was most likely black, male, and residing in certain Chicago neighborhoods. Not because that’s what these other agencies were actually searching for, but because that’s all the Chicago PD had entered into the database.
