Innocent Mom Speaks Out After She Was Kidnapped, Interrogated for Speaking Spanish

Havre, MT —  Ana Suda and Martha “Mimi” Hernandez are both U.S. born citizens who grew up in Texas and California respectively. But their lifelong citizenship and complete lack of criminal record would have no bearing on a US Border patrol agent hell bent on taking ‘dangerous’ Spanish speaking women off the streets of Havre, Montana. Since that fateful day on which these women were detained for speaking Spanish, Suda says her life has become a nightmare. As TFTP reported at the time, the incident happened on May 18, 2018, as Suda and Hernandez stood in line at a local grocery…

Gov’t Says Stealing Elderly Man’s Home Over $8.41 Tax Bill is Okay Because ‘They Want Money’

In the land of the free, even if you fully pay off your home loan to the bank, your property is never truly yours. Through property tax, states from coast to coast continue to charge you for land that you own. As the following case illustrates, even if you accidentally forget to pay a tiny portion of these taxes to the state, they can and will steal your home right out from under you. Elderly retirees are no exception to the tyranny of taxation and state-sponsored theft. Uri Rafaeli is an 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan who is learning the…

Son of Chinese billionaire is banned from flying first class, going on holiday and buying luxurious goods by Beijing’s social credit system after refusing to pay £400K debt

The son of a Chinese billionaire has been stripped of his rights to have a high-rolling lifestyle by a court in accordance with the country’s social credit system after failing to obey a court order. UK-educated Wang Sicong, the only child of mega-rich property magnate Wang Jianlin, has been banned from flying first class, buying luxury goods, taking high-speed trains and going on holiday after refusing to pay £414,000 debt, according to a district court in Shanghai. The 31-year-old, famous for buying eight iPhone 7s and two Apple Watches for his pet dog, has also been barred from staying in high-end…

Infuriating Video Shows Cops Swarm Woman, Kidnap Her for Selling Churros

New York, NY — In the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the state before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice. A video posted to Twitter over the weekend backs up this notion, showing an otherwise entirely innocent woman’s arrest for selling churros to willing customers in a New York City subway. The video was recorded by a vigilant bystander, Sofia Newman, who knew she was witnessing an injustice. The infuriating video shows four cops dispatched to take the…

WATCH: ‘I’m Going to F**king Kill You’—Cop Quits After Threatening to Kill Man, Siccing K9 On Him

Spokane, WA — Spokane Police Department Officer Dan Lesser didn’t actually quit on his own terms. He was either forced to step down or requested to stop being a K-9 handler following a viral video depicting a violent arrest in which Lesser sicced his police K9 attack dog on a man while threatening to kill him. In February, Lesser located Lucas Ellerman who was “smoking” inside his four-door pickup truck. The officer pinned Ellerman into a snow bank as the fugitive wanted for being a felon in possession of a firearm attempted to flee. After successfully pinning the truck with…

WATCH: Officer Attacks, Chokes Out Inmate for Trying to Pray

The Free Thought Project has reported on numerous incidents in which police officers have attacked people for utterly senseless reasons. We have reported on instances of police beating people up for having epileptic seizures, or for being in a diabetic shock, or even being deaf. However, this is the first time we have reported on someone getting attacked by an officer for trying to pray. A former inmate at the Cuyahoga County Jail, Tyrone Hipps, named Cuyahoga County and officer Christopher Perdue as defendants in his lawsuit. Hipps can be seen in the video footage obtained from the incident Nov.…

WATCH: 3 Cops Enter Home With No Warrant Taser Father Holding his Baby

Tempe, AZ — Police in Arizona are seemingly always in the news for brutality and criminal behavior. Just last month, we reported on an Arizona cop who was caught on video shooting his AR-15 into a crowd of teenagers, killing a 17-year-old boy. Just two weeks before that, TFTP reported on Trooper Tremaine Jackson, who was arrested for allegedly kidnapping and raping over a dozen women while on duty. Now, only weeks after raping and killing by Arizona cops, another video has surfaced showing cops taser a man in his own home while he held his baby. The incident happened…

Hero? Disturbing Video Shows Cop Execute Mentally Ill Woman Holding Scissors

Security camera footage has just been released of an officer-involved shooting which took place on October 25th. It shows forty-five-year-old Shannon Rupert, of Shreveport having a mental breakdown, possibly a result of illicit drug use, being shot dead for wielding a pair of tiny scissors. Rupert was reportedly struggling with drug addiction and may have been suffering a break from reality when officers were called to the La Quinta Inn on Friday night in October. Bossier City Police Department released the following statement about the incident: The officer gave multiple verbal commands to Rupert to put down the weapon. Rupert…

Hero? Disturbing Video Shows Cop Execute Mentally Ill Woman Holding Scissors

Bossier, LA — Security camera footage has just been released of an officer-involved shooting which took place on October 25th. It shows forty-five-year-old Shannon Rupert, of Shreveport having a mental breakdown, possibly a result of illicit drug use, being shot dead for wielding a pair of tiny scissors.

Elderly Mom Beaten, Robbed of $30,000 While Bailing Out Her Son as Officers Watched—Lawsuit

New York, NY — Rarely do we report allegations without some corroborating evidence, but we found Linda Shapiro’s case against NYC’s Department of Corrections deeply disturbing and were compelled to tell her story. According to a recent lawsuit filed by Linda Shapiro, he son needed $30,000 to bail out of the Lower Manhattan jail where he was being held. Presumably acting on maternal instinct alone, Shapiro took out the $30,000 in cash and proceeded to the jail to bond out her son. When she arrived, according to the lawsuit she and her lawyer recently filed in court, people were having…

Taxpayers to Be Held Liable After SWAT Raids Innocent Family Over Growing Tomato Plants

Leawood, KS — Adlynn and Robert Harte and their two children had harmed no one and broken no laws when heavily armed militarized SWAT deputies with the Johnson County sheriff’s department stormed their home like it was an ISIS compound. The “hero” deputies were searching for evidence of marijuana production and use but they found none because the Harte’s don’t use or produce marijuana. They do grow vegetables, however, and they also drink tea. The Hartes and their two children were held at gunpoint and nearly killed for purchasing supplies for their vegetable garden and drinking tea. After they were…

SWAT Team Blows Up Innocent Man’s Home in Search of Clothing Shoplifter — Deal With It, Says Court

A Federal Appeals court has granted police new powers for which they will not be held accountable. They can now completely destroy your home and they will not have to pay for it. That’s what happened to Leo Lech’s home in 2015 after a shoplifter — accused of stealing a shirt — illegally entered his home, forcing Greenwood Village SWAT to go room by room ransacking the place with explosives. The 19-hour standoff ended with the suspect being taken into custody, but not before the home, as TFTP previously reported, was destroyed. The place looked like it was hit with…

WATCH: Cop Fired After Video Caught Him Beat Man Chained to a Hospital Bed, Then Lie About It

Broward County, FL — The deputies of Broward Sheriff’s Office in Florida have created a terrible image of themselves over the past several years. From cowering behind a wall while children were murdered in a school to sexually assaulting children to torturing people with their K9s, the department has tarnished the image of public servants everywhere. Now, as yet another disturbing video shows, we can add ‘beating people chained to a hospital bed’ to the list. But the city has had enough and now they are charging these bad cops — and firing them. In July, the Broward State Attorney’s…

Colorado police who blew up family’s house with CHEMICAL BOMBS just to catch a shoplifter owe them NOTHING, court rules

A Colorado family whose house was destroyed in a 19-hour standoff between police and an armed shoplifter is not entitled to any compensation from the department that rendered them homeless, an appeals court has ruled. Police who deployed explosives and armored vehicles to flush out a man –who’d stolen two belts and a shirt from a Greenwood Village Walmart– from the house of Leo and Alfonsia Lech, are not required to compensate the couple for destroying their home, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Tuesday. “It just goes to show that they can blow up your house, throw…

Crowd Scatters in Fear as a Dozen Cops Point Guns to Arrest Teen Over $2.75 Fare

Another citizen has been threatened with death by New York Police Department (NYPD) officers for fare jumping on the subway. Adrian Napier, 19, was held at gunpoint and pinned to the ground by over a dozen cops and all he had done was jump the turnstile to avoid paying the $2.75 fare. According to police, their response was justified, after several people called police to report a young man was in possession of a firearm. Napier was not this person. However, he allegedly jumped the turnstile and ran when he saw the officers. Instead of stopping to talk with police,…

Woman Jailed for Complaining About Her Cop Ex-Husband on Facebook—Taxpayers Held Liable

In yet another federal civil rights lawsuit, the American taxpayer is footing the bill for the unconscionable actions of a few uneducated and unscrupulous police officers. This time, a police officer decided to arrest his ex-wife for “criminal defamation” of character, for a Facebook post she made which he obviously didn’t like. There were no threats of violence and it merely implied that he was lazy. In 2015, Anne King posted the following, completely legal post to her Facebook page: “That moment when everyone in your house has the flu and you ask your kid’s dad to get them (not…

🚨 Trump Announces Plans for Nationwide Police Crackdown, More Militarized Police

President Donald Trump on Monday said the Justice Department is preparing to launch a sweeping crackdown on crime that he named “the surge,” a term commonly associated with the George W. Bush administration’s decision to send tens of thousands of additional troops into Iraq in 2007. “In coming weeks, Attorney General Barr will announce a new crackdown on violent crime—which I think is so important—targeting gangs and drug traffickers in high crime cities and dangerous rural areas,” Trump said during the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago. “Let’s call it the surge.” The president did not provide…

Florida Police Caught Creating Illegal Lists for Tracking Gun Owners

Tallahassee, FL — According to Florida state law, Statute 790.335, “no state governmental agency or local government, special district, or other political subdivision or official, agent, or employee of such state or other governmental entity or any other person, public or private, shall knowingly and willfully keep or cause to be kept any list, record, or registry of privately owned firearms or any list, record, or registry of the owners of those firearms.” Government agencies found in violation of this law, who keep lists of firearms owners, are committing a felony, according to the legislation. Nevertheless, cops in Florida were…

‘This charge is 100% false’: Grayzone editor Max Blumenthal arrested months after reporting on Venezuelan opposition violence

The Grayzone editor Max Blumenthal has been arrested on false charges after reporting on Venezuelan opposition violence outside the DC embassy. He describes the manufactured case as part of a wider campaign of political persecution. Max Blumenthal, the editor of the news site The Grayzone, was arrested on the morning of October 25 on a fabricated charge related to the siege of the Venezuelan embassy in Washington, DC that took place between April and May. A team of DC police officers appeared at Blumenthal’s door at just after 9 AM, demanding entry and threatening to break his door down. A…

🔥 Cops Tell Man to Put His Hands Up, He Does and They Kill Him Anyway

San Bernardino officer Brandon Gaddie is out of a job this month after a year-old body camera video was made public showing him kill 27-year-old Richard Sanchez. Sanchez was shot five times by Gaddie as his hands were in the air, above his head. In 2014, the phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” became the rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement as well as police accountability activists in general. By raising your arms in the air and showing police your empty hands, this serves as a de-escalation tactic to put officers at ease by letting them know you are…

Innocent Deaf Teen Loses Cochlear Implant As Cops Taser Him in the Back for Not Hearing Them

A Campbell County deaf teenager was tasered and put into handcuffs after sheriff’s deputies gave the teen orders he simply couldn’t hear. Brett Elkins, 19, was at a friend’s house, had called his mother, and was waiting on her to pick him up when the police got a call to respond to the same address for a domestic dispute. As police were arriving on scene they gave Elkins orders which he not only did not hear, but he also did not see the deputies making gestures. Because he was deaf, he was then tasered in the back as he was…

Struggling Dad Sent to Prison For Being Unable to Pay $1,941 Bill to the Gov’t

In the land of the free, those who can afford to pay the state exorbitant amounts of money for their criminal behavior almost always avoid spending any time in jail. If you doubt this claim simply look at the mega banks caught laundering money for terrorists and drug dealers who never go to jail. Or, look at the financial institutions who are constantly caught stealing from American citizens in fraudulent schemes and merely pay a fine to avoid any jail. Or, look at the massive tech companies who get caught illegally exploiting millions of children, pay the state, and face…

Trudeau government body sues digital media outlets to ban them from attending government press events

n one of its first major acts since Justin Trudeau won the 2019 Canadian federal election, The Leaders’ Debate Commission, a body created and chosen by the Trudeau government, is using taxpayer money to try and get independent journalists banned from government press events. The Leaders’ Debate Commission has filed a Notice of Appeal against the independent digital media platforms Rebel Media and True North seeking to overturn an earlier Federal Court decision which ordered it to accredit David Menzies (Rebel Media), Keean Bexte (Rebel Media), and Andrew Lawton (True North) and allow them to attend government press events. If…

Family Facing $2,500/Day Fines for Firewood Charity That Delivers Wood to the Sick and Elderly

In the land of the free, stacking firewood on your own property can and will lead to your extortion by government bureaucrats. You can be fined exorbitant amounts of money for this firewood even if you are collecting it to donate it to elderly, sick and struggling people to stay warm during the harsh winter. As TFTP has reported, if you refuse to pay these fines, you can and will be kidnapped. Or, if you resist this kidnapping, you may even be killed. Shane McDaniel runs a charity on his own private property that collects downed trees from the local…

Florida has confiscated thousands of guns from 2,654 people

In a bustling Tampa courtroom, a lawyer is making the case for keeping guns out of the hands of a man named Anthony Ballard. Judge Ron Ficarrotta flips through court paperwork and reads the alarming details: How a friend said Ballard, 30, showed him a violent and graphic video of a gunman shooting down patrons in a bank. Ballard told his friend: “This will be me one day. I’m gonna be the greatest mass shooter. I’m gonna shoot the most people ever and be famous for it.” The file recounts how deputies tracked Ballard down and how he begged them…

Cop Forced to Pay Victim With His Own Money After Breaking His Nose and Lying About It

As the Free Thought Project has reported extensively, police officers, even when found at fault for their abusive actions, are almost never held personally liable. It is the taxpayers who foot the bill. However, a new trend in accountability seems to be happening more often, and will be massively more effective at curbing police brutality than any system in place right now. Cops are being forced to pay their victims out of their own pockets. The most recent case of a cop being held personally liable for his crimes comes from Massachusetts in which a Hadley Police Officer was sentenced…

Cop Executes Unarmed 16yo Boy, Shooting Him in the Head as He Ran Away

Fresno, CA — An utterly disturbing video has just been released showing a Fresno police officer shoot and kill an unarmed 16-year-old boy as he ran away. Because the entire system is set up in a way to protect killer cops — even ones who murder unarmed children as they run away — the family of the boy is suing because the cop was never held accountable. The video was just released this week by ABC affiliate KFSN and it is nothing short of horrifying. The incident unfolded in April of 2017 when police stopped the victim, Isiah Murrietta-Golding, for…

U.S. government secretly using flu shot to seize control of EVERY AMERICAN’S immune system

The vaccine industry always says “the science is settled” when it comes to any concoction they slap together and call a “vaccine.” The science isn’t “settled” because it’s never settled. You can’t predict the future, and organic and genetically modified things can quickly morph and mutate, changing everything. There’s a quote on vaccine research we must share, and it comes from the vaccine industry themselves, via the CDC, informing everyone they’ve got all the ingredients in vaccines already figured out, and that nobody should ever question, research, test or deny the “settled science” of any vaccine ever again. Before we get to that…

WATCH: SWAT Wakes Up Disoriented Homeless Man, Execute Him for Reaching for His Waistband

Albuquerque, NM — Graphic body camera footage was recently released from the Albuquerque police department showing a heavily militarized SWAT team surround a sleeping homeless man and then execute him. Police justified their execution by claiming that the homeless man reached for his waistband where he had a BB gun. Before the naysayers mention it, we know it is nearly impossible to decipher the difference between a BB gun and a real handgun. No one wants to wait until that gun is fired or pointed in their direction before finding out what it is. If anyone points a BB gun…

Officials Plead with Cop to Stop Attacking 11yo Girl with Special Needs

A veteran Farmington police officer was allowed to quietly resign this month in a move to escape accountability after horrifying video footage showed him attacking an 11-year-old girl with special needs. The incident unfolded on August 27, but the officer’s lapel camera video has only just been released. It is nothing short of disturbing as it shows the officer, who is much bigger than the girl, slamming her down on the concrete while abusing her. “That’s not our standards. That’s not who we are,” said Farmington Police Chief Steven Hebbe in response to his officer in the video. The incident…

Family Says They Were Attacked, Arrested for ‘Loitering’ — In Their OWN YARD

The widely accepted definition of the ‘crime’ of loitering is the act of remaining in a particular public place for a protracted time, without any apparent purpose. The designation of the term ‘public’ place is important as one does not need a purpose to do as they wish on their own private property. One police department in Pennsylvania, however, must have missed this point as they arrested a family earlier this month for the alleged crime of loitering—in their own front yard. A family, who is black, is now speaking out after they say they were targeted by cops, who…

WATCH: State Trooper Pulls Gun on Veteran Speeding to Hospital to See His Dying Mother

A U.S. Army Reserves Translator was attempting to hurry to the hospital to be with his sick mother when Department of Public Safety (DPS) Trooper Brian Hillenbrand pulled him over. Mike Aldarraji admitted to AZ Family reporters he was weaving in and out of the high-occupancy vehicle lane in an attempt to get to the hospital quicker. However, his issue was with how much time the trooper took to write the ticket. When Hillenbrand stopped Aldarraji one could say he was in no hurry to release Aldarraji to be on his way to his sick mother. In fact, the traffic…

Cops Mistake Powdered Milk for Cocaine, Innocent Man Thrown in a Cage for Months

Police incompetence coupled with the war on drugs is a dangerous mixture that all too often takes the lives of entirely innocent people and hurls them into turmoil and destruction. Not only does the war on drugs lay waste to the rights and lives of countless innocent people caught with substances deemed illegal by the state but many people who never possess these substances fall victim to drug warrior cops so hell bent on ruining lives that they will claim that powdered milk is cocaine. After being held in jail for weeks, Cody Gregg, 26, pleaded guilty to trafficking drugs…

NO JAIL for Cop Who Killed Elderly Librarian on Video During a Police Demo

In August 2016, Punta Gorda police officer Lee Coel gunned down 73-year-old Mary Knowlton in front of dozens of stunned onlookers, during a demonstration about police use of deadly force. More than six months passed while law enforcement conducted their investigation and it was announced in 2017 that Coel was being charged. However, thanks to a corrupt system, this cop will not be going to jail. In a landmark move, Punta Gordo Police Chief Tom Lewis, who adamantly defended his deadly negligent officer, was also charged. However, he was acquitted of his charge of culpable negligence earlier this year. Coel…

‘Push him off’: Insane Video Shows Cops Push Teen Off a Roof, Taser Him on the Ground

This week, a police officer’s body camera captured one of the most insane moves by a cop that we have reported here at TFTP. An officer pushed a teenager off of a roof. And, despite video evidence of the infraction, the officer was given less than a slap on the wrist for his behavior. Accused of stealing his girlfriend’s car, police showed up at the alleged thief’s home and attempted to get his side of the story. But instead of getting the boyfriend’s version of events, the man fled deeper into the house, and eventually accessing the roof from a…

Cops Rip Out Innocent Woman’s Tampon, Vaginally Search Her in PUBLIC—Taxpayers to Be Held Liable

A disturbing lawsuit was filed last year in federal court detailing a horrifying nightmare endured by an innocent woman at the hands of San Antonio police. The victim, Natalie D. Simms had her tampon pulled out by police who then conducted a vaginal cavity search—in public and on video—all to search for non-existent drugs. After learning that the local government has been spending thousands of taxpayer dollars to protect the officers involved, the case may finally be settling for $205,000. The Law Offices of Dean Malone issued a press release earlier this year explaining how the city has “spent countless…

Weapons of War On Our Streets: A Guide to the Militarization of America’s Police

Gun control proponents often talk about the “weapons of war on our streets”; however it’s actually America's police who are becoming increasingly militarized. This guide discusses the history of law enforcement, from peace officers to modern SWAT expansion, and the federal tactics used locally to surveil communities and use military-grade force.

Police Force Horrifying Sexual Assault Exam on 5yo Girl After She Fell Off a Trampoline—Lawsuit

Mountain View, CA — Madeleine Lother, 5, was on a play date with friends at a trampoline park earlier this year when she took a spill and fell on a large knotted rope. That fall would then set off a series of events that would lead to a living nightmare for the girl and her parents. “She was crying. She went in the foam pit and continued to play with her friends, and she was crying, holding her private area,” said Madeleine’s mother Danielle. When Danielle got home, she checked her daughter’s private area, saw a minor scrape, and then…

Bullied 12yo Girl Arrested, Charged with Felony for Pointing a ‘Finger Gun’ at Students

Overland Park, KS — A 12-year-old girl has recently found herself entangled within the police state after she made a poor, but innocent decision to shape her fingers like a gun and point them at students. Her case is now highlighting a serious problem within America’s educational system and the police state. Last month, a classmate jokingly asked the 12-year-old girl if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be. The girl then reportedly shaped her fingers like a gun, pointed at four other students before pretending to shoot herself. Yes, we understand that threatening to…

Student Suspended for 5 Days Over ‘Taxation is Theft’ Hat, ‘End the Drug War’ Flyer

“It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of education have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.” –Albert Einstein Standard education in America typically focuses on creating a supply of worker bees who follow orders from authority and operate within the confines…

‘They Put Rifles to My Children’s Heads’ Cops Terrorize Family in Raid on Wrong Home

Chicago, IL — Because of their gross negligence and incompetence, the city of Chicago is facing a slew of lawsuits for raiding the homes of innocent people — allegedly by mistake. TFTP has reported on several of these lawsuits in which cops raided a four-year-old’s birthday party and held other children at gunpoint. One of these families has even been raided — mistakenly — three times. One family’s recent mistaken raid, however, is exposing a blue wall of silence and showing how far the Chicago police department is willing to go to cover up their crimes. Over the past few…

Power-Tripping Cop Arrested For Beating Up Female EMT Over a Hot Dog

Memphis, TN – As TFTP reports on a regular basis, many power tripping police officers will hold no punches — quite literally — when interacting with other first responders. Over the years, TFTP has reported on numerous incidents in which cops beat up firemen, EMTs, and even other cops. The following story is one of these cases. In a rather embarrassing, yet brutal, debacle, a Memphis police officer has been arrested and charged with beating up an emergency medical technician. The reason the department should be embarrassed over this officer’s actions is because he beat up and kidnapped an innocent…

Tennessee Man Prosecuted for Pro-Gun Sticker That Says ‘Rifle UC Rifle’

Sumner County, TN — Freedom of speech, in the land of the free, is not guaranteed. Despite the wording of the First Amendment, claiming that “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech,” there are countless laws across the country designed to do exactly that. However, even when there aren’t archaic anti-speech laws on the books, police will all too often deprive people of their freedom — for practicing their freedom. A Tennessee man is learning this the hard way after his sticker about gun control recently got him targeted by police and extorted. Nicholas Ennis has had a…

Taxpayers Held Liable After Disabled Veteran Arrested for Buying Cans of Iced Tea and a Light Bulb

In a victory for common sense and the rights of citizens to not have their lawful First Amendment activity chilled by egregious, excessive government security protocols, officials with the City of Charlottesville have agreed to settle a lawsuit brought by The Rutherford Institute. Rutherford Institute attorneys filed the lawsuit on behalf of a disabled war veteran who was arrested in 2018 for lawfully purchasing canned iced tea, bug spray, lightbulbs and razor blades at a mall drug store in so-called “violation” of the city’s pre-emptive “state of emergency” lockdown measures adopted in anticipation of the one-year anniversary of the August…

WATCH: ‘Good Cops’ Do Nothing as Fellow Officers Beat and Choke Handcuffed Man

Raul Tornes is suing Elizabeth Police Officer Edward Shields, the City of Elizabeth and Jane Doe who allegedly either took part in his beating or stood by watching as Shields dragged, choked, and punched the man as he sat in jail—handcuffed. Fortunately for Tornes, the September 2017 incident was caught on body cameras and is one of the worst jailhouse beatings by an officer we’ve ever covered. And it appears from the footage Tornes was quite literally lucky to have survived the horrific ordeal alive. When the video starts, Officer Shields can be seen going after Tornes who was seated…

Cops Hold Man at Gunpoint, Beat Him Nearly to Death Over License Place Cover

Homestead, FL — Ask any police officer anywhere what happens to suspects when they run from police. Most, if they’re honest, will tell you the perpetrator will most likely get a beat down by the boys in blue for fleeing. But one fleeing suspect’s only crime was not having a legal license plate cover and for running away from police he received a beating which placed him in the hospital. Sabrian Bruton believed he was complying with the law in the summer of 2018 when he was pulled over by a Homestead, FL police officer Christian DeJohn for having an…

Amber Guyger Gets Just 10 Years for MURDER as Man Sentenced to 99 Years for Kicking a Cop

As TFTP reported on Tuesday, the family of Botham Jean thought they were finally going to see some justice after the police officer who killed their beloved son was found guilty of murder. While the guilty verdict was certainly a welcomed rarity, on Wednesday, this killer’s blue privilege finally shined through. For murdering an innocent man in his own apartment, Amber Guyger was sentenced to just ten years in prison. “Of course that’s inadequate. The entire justice system is inadequate and the work must continue,” S. Lee Merritt, an attorney who represents Jean’s family, wrote on Twitter. Dallas District Attorney…

New York City Criminalizes the Phrase “Illegal Alien”

New York City is attempting to criminalize using the phrase “illegal alien” in a new vaguely worded, reaching and anti-First Amendment municipal law. A new 29-page order released by the city’s Commission on Human Rights specifies fines of $250,000 per offense for using the phrase in a manner deemed to be “hateful” by city bureaucrats. “Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other.’ The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or…

Cop Kidnaps Woman, Strips to His Underwear to Then ‘Baptize’ Her in a Lake — Lawsuit

Over the years, the Free Thought Project has reported on some utterly bizarre behavior from law enforcement. From judges stealing women’s underwear to police officers offering homeless people sh*t sandwiches, this behavior never ceases to amaze and infuriate. Adding to this long list of “weird sh*t cops do” is the following story out of Chattanooga, in which a police officer stripped to his underwear and “baptized” a woman he was arresting for having a marijuana roach. Shandle Marie Riley is now suing Hamilton County government and two Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputies after she claims one of them stripped down to…

Taxpayers Held Liable After Video Shows Cops Search Man’s Anal Cavity Over Window Tint Stop

What started out as a fishing expedition disguised as a window tint violation ended with two Hamilton County deputies placed on leave for strip searching and sodomizing a man suspected of possessing an illegal substance. Now, after the cops enjoy a months-long paid vacation, the taxpayers will be held accountable for their actions. The victim in the incident, James Myron Mitchell has filed suit against the deputies, claiming the stop was for false allegations of a window tint violation which led to his horrifying treatment at the hands of two public servants. As TFTP reported in July, deputies Daniel Wilkey…

Doctors took a newborn baby from her parents after they refused a vitamin K shot for her. Now the couple is suing the hospital and DCFS.

In the seconds after Angela Bougher gave birth last winter, she and her husband Brian, a suburban Chicago pastor, were excited to hold their new baby girl.  Moments after their healthy daughter arrived, a nurse announced that it was time for the infant’s vitamin K shot. Brian and Angela Bougher, who said they are not “anti-vaxxers” or against any procedure they deem medically necessary, had declined the shot well before their daughter was born due to religious beliefs, according to a lawsuit obtained by The Chicago Tribune.  After refusing the shot, the nurse stated she was reporting the couple to…

Taxpayers to Be Held Liable After Cops Steal Man’s Phone, Film Themselves Conspiring to Frame Him

On September 11, 2015, journalist and police accountability activist, Michael Picard was illegally detained for lawfully open carrying and filming police on public property. During the illegal detainment, Connecticut state troopers confiscated his gun and his camera. However, the trooper who took the phone went on to make a critical mistake — he left the camera rolling while conspiring with fellow officers to falsely charge Picard. In 2017, it was revealed by the department that they investigated themselves and found they did nothing wrong when they conspired to frame an innocent man. “They were exonerated,” police union attorney Mark Dumas…

An Autistic Student Needed a Quiet Place to Work. His Desk was Put in a Bathroom

Parents of an 11-year-old boy with special needs are furious with a school district in Washington state after his desk was moved to a school bathroom. Danielle Goodwin, the boys mother, said that his teacher thought the bathroom would be the best quiet place for him to learn. Her son has autism and an autoimmune disorder, and does best in a calm and quiet area. Goodwin said she had discussed her son’s special needs with the teacher, but when she showed up on Monday at Whatcom Middle School in Bellingham, she discovered the solution was to put her son’s desk…

Man Get 99 Years in Prison for Kicking at a Cop as A Child-Murdering Cop Walks Free

The Free Thought Project has reported on, quite literally, thousands of instances of police officers hurting or killing citizens, many of them entirely innocent. In the overwhelming majority of the cases, the officers are not charged with a crime and most of those keep their jobs. If those roles are reversed, however, and a citizen dares fight against a police officer, that citizen will face punishment every single time. A Texas man learned this the hard way this week after being sentenced to 99 years in prison for kicking a cop. The incident happened in April of this year when…

No Charges for Cops Who Shot and Killed a Naked, Unarmed Teen

Oklahoma City, OK — Isaiah Mark Lewis, 17, was going to graduate high school last May. However, he’ll never walk down that aisle now thanks to two police officers who put multiple rounds into the teen’s body two weeks before he graduated. Lewis was unarmed and naked when Edmond police ended his life during a confrontation. Despite these facts, Oklahoma prosecutors cleared both of those officers this week. Officer Denton Scherman of the Edmond Police Department “was acting pursuant to Oklahoma statute” in an effort to protect himself and Sgt. Milo Box when Scherman fatally shot 17-year-old Isaiah Mark Lewis…

Cop Threatens to Carry Out Mass Shooting, Not “Red Flagged” and Not Arrested

Tarpon Springs, FL — Since the tragic shooting in El Paso, Texas in which a deranged gunman murdered 22 people inside a Walmart, law enforcement have been making dozens of arrests. These arrests consist of people who have been threatening to carry out a mass killings. One person, however, recently threatened to carry out a mass shooting — twice — and he has yet to be arrested. His occupation is a police officer. Detective Steve Begren was talking to a fellow police officer last month when he made the threat, claiming that there would be an “active shooter situation” at…

Cops Mistake Fellow Cop for Protester, Beat Him ‘Like Rodney King’, Smash His Camera—Lawsuit

In December 2011, St. Louis Police Officer Jason Stockley violated department policy when he grabbed his personal AK-47, premeditated, and then murdered Anthony Lamar Smith. The planning of the murder and the actual murder were captured on the officer’s dashcam. In spite of the overwhelming amount of evidence against him, a St. Louis judge in 2017 found Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of Smith. Months of protests ensued immediately. During the protests, undercover police officers were placed throughout the crowd in order to catch people who were attempting to instigate violence or destroy property. Police violence…

Federal Court Rules Cops Can Steal Your Stuff and it Does NOT Violate the Constitution

The ninth circuit court of appeals has upheld a ruling which declared police can constitutionally steal your possessions. Called “civil asset forfeiture,” the police are under no obligation to give the property back to you. Instead, police departments will steal your stuff, hold it in storage (accruing fees in most cases), and then sell your stuff to the highest bidder. Police have no qualms about stealing your property, especially after you’ve been arrested for a crime. Even though every citizen is supposedly innocent until proven guilty, police will routinely confiscate, cash, guns, and real property from those who’ve been charged…

NO JAIL for Cops Who Set an Innocent Man on Fire and Savagely Beat Him

As TFTP reported in 2017, a high-speed chase in Jersey City ended when the car police were chasing crashed and turned another man’s car into a ball of flames. But it’s the chaotic insanity which followed the crash and the fire that resulted in the indictment of several Jersey City police officers and a massive lawsuit against the city and the department. This week, however, all of the officers involved took plea deals and although they were fired, not a single one of them will go to jail for what they did. The taxpayers will now be held liable as…

Evil tech giants already read your emails and monitor your voice in your own home; now they want your BLOOD and DNA

You may recall our earlier reporting about the collapse of Theranos, the fraudulent blood testing company founded by Elizabeth Holmes that’s no longer in existence. Well, as fake as this company was, did it actually serve a hidden purpose that the world might have missed? The reason we’re asking this question is that the company’s Edison machine, which didn’t technically work as claimed, may have actually been developed as a type of blood and DNA surveillance system that the deep state can now start to implement as part of its total surveillance matrix agenda. As Mike Adams, the Health Ranger,…

Chief Intercepts His Wife’s 911 Call for Domestic Violence, Has His Own Cops Respond

Every time a football player or an NBA star makes headlines for domestic abuse, the country goes up in arms as news outlets talk about domestic violence among these industries. Because of this phenomenon, 69 percent of Americans think that there is widespread domestic violence in the NFL. But the reality is that domestic violence among NFL players is well below the national average, coming in at just five percent. On the contrary, however, every time a police officer—someone who has sworn an oath to uphold the constitution and the law—beats their significant other, it barely registers as a blip…

Trump administration considers monitoring smartphones of people with mental health problems

The Trump administration is considering a proposal to combat mass shootings which suggests phones and smartwatches may be used to track people with mental health problems. The idea began with Bob Wright, a former NBC chairman and longtime Trump confidant, who first proposed creating a government research arm, called the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA), to tackle health problems. After the El Paso massacre, Ivanka Trump asked the team behind the proposal to come up with ways to stop mass shootings, according to The Washington Post. Mr Wright’s team put together a three-page document titled “Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events…

Cops Claim They Had to Smash Innocent Autistic Teen’s Head Into Concrete to “Protect Her”

Riverside County, CA — Michelle Chartrand is a 19-year-old woman with autism who has never harmed a fly, much less committed a crime. However, because police officers opt for training in escalation of violence instead of how to interact with special needs individuals, she fell victim to police brutality and was treated like a murder suspect. As she walked home from school last year, Chartrand was attacked by police, tackled to the ground, and injured—by police who claim they were trying to save her. On Friday, Chartrand filed suit in U.S. District Court alleging that the beating and treatment she…

What the…? The UN head of global communications says America has no right to protect its own borders and that migrants should be permitted to cross if they want

For the better part of Western existence, most people have understood one basic principle of statehood: That countries are sovereign, and as such, they have a right and even a duty to protect the integrity of their borders. That means if necessary, they can and should build barriers, pass laws against illegal entry, and enforce those laws against anyone caught breaking them. But we’re in what talk show giant Mark Levin calls a “post-constitutional” period in the United States, where “statists” and big government Leftists shun the long-held principles of sovereignty, independence, and liberty in favor of a Marxist free-for-all…

Justice? Man Sent to Prison for LIFE for a Non-Violent First Time Marijuana Offense

The following is an article by Craig Cesal, a federal prisoner sentenced to life without the possibility of parole as a first-time offender convicted of conspiring to distribute marijuana. “I sentence you to a term of natural life imprisonment, without the possibility of parole.” These were the words I heard in the months after the events of September 11, 2001. You see, at that time, the news was abuzz with theories that drug dealers finance terrorists, and I had just been convicted of my first felony: conspiring to distribute marijuana. This was the newest foray into the War on Drugs.…

Now It’s Official: US Visa Can Be Denied If You (Or Even Your Friends) Are Critical of American Policies

There have been several interesting developments in the United States government’s war on free speech and privacy. First of all, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP), which is responsible for actual entry of travelers into the country, has now declared that it can legally access phones and computers at ports of entry to determine if there is any subversive content which might impact on national security. “Subversive content” is, of course, subjective, but those seeking entry can be turned back based on how a border control agent perceives what he is perusing on electronic…

Tennis Star Fined $10,000 For ‘Playful’ Rifle Gesture With Racket

An American tennis player has been fined $10,000 for using his racket to mimic shooting a rifle at a referee in a gesture he said was intended to be “playful.” Doubles tennis star Mike Bryan and his twin brother Bob had just successfully challenged a poor call by a line judge during a match at the U.S. Open in New York. “The duo had been trailing by a set and had just challenged a lob that had been called in by the line judge — in favor of their opponents, Roberto Carballes Baena of Spain and Federico Delbonis of Argentina,”…

Sheriff Mistakes Innocent Man for Suspect, Dumps 10 Rounds Into Him—NO CHARGES

Kimble County Sheriff Hilario Cantu is taking fire in the form of criticism after he opened fire on an innocent man, dumping 10 rounds into him and his truck. Quite unlike what the general public would face, in the form of criminal charges, Cantu will likely face no charges, serve no time in jail, and will potentially not even be disciplined for shooting up the wrong moving vehicle. What started out as a traffic stop for a missing license plate nearly turned deadly for both one police officer and one hapless innocent bystander. When officer Lee Meadow pulled over a…

PA man convicted of firing ‘finger gun’ at neighbor..

A Pennsylvania man was fined $100, plus court costs, for waving a finger gun at his neighbor, who reportedly felt “extremely threatened” by the ordeal. The incident occurred last June when 64-year-old Manor Township resident Stephen Kirchner was walking in his neighborhood with a female neighbor and a homeowner who had a simmering dispute with the woman flipped him two middle fingers, he told police. ‘Gun-like’ hand gesture deemed crime by Pa. court ‘Gun-like hand gesture’ deemed crime by Pennsylvania court: https://bit.ly/2HtDT1m Posted by WGAL News Channel 8 Susquehanna Valley, Pa. on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 Court records allege Kirchner…

Youth Services Cop Engages in Oral Sex with Sex-Trafficked Teen—NOT Arrested, May Get Job Back

Oakland, CA — An abused little girl was only 12-years-old when she was forced into the sex trade, forever altering the course of her life. For years, this little girl was “exploited by pimps” until she finally broke away and made it to an Oakland police officer. For a brief moment, she thought she was safe — but, according to a lawsuit, she was wrong and the cops began trafficking her. And all of it stems from police being entirely unable to hold problem cops accountable—even when there is evidence of sexual misconduct and a paper trail of sexting. Former Lt.…

Child Protective Services launches Soviet-style armed raid on family to kidnap their 4-year-old autistic child…

A four-year-old boy has been victimized by Child Protective Services (CPS) in Texas after the government agency accused the boy’s family of “exaggerating and lying about” his “symptoms and conditions,” relating to a medical condition for which he was diagnosed. According to reports, on June 20, CPS conducted a “Soviet-style” raid on the Pardo family, seizing little Drake because his mother, Ashley, had demanded what authorities claim is “an unnecessary surgical procedure to place a G-tube” inside his body. The Pardo family had previously filed a complaint against the Children’s Medical Center in Texas for alleged negligence after doctors at…

Soon Doctors Will Screen Everyone For Drugs

Imagine in the not-too-distant future your job, college ID, drivers license, passport, gun permit, health insurance etc., will depend on you passing a mandatory drug screening. What is that you say? It could never happen in America. It could happen sooner than you think if the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) has anything to say about it. According to a recent Los Angeles Timesarticle, the USPSTF wants doctors to screen everyone for drug use. “Questions about drug use should not only cover the possibility that a patient is taking illegal street drugs like cocaine or heroin, the task force…

SWAT Raids Innocent Family, Shoots 12yo Boy in Bed, Covers Up Body Cam—Lawsuit

In their effort to go after people for possessing and selling substances deemed illegal by the state, US law enforcement personnel will lay waste to anyone in their path. As TFTP has reported time and again, even innocent children, including sleeping babies, are not exempt from the terror and violence doled out by the American Drug Warriors. A 12-year-old boy in Illinois learned this the hard way recently after cops shot him and shattered his knee cap during a fruitless raid to make a drug arrest. On the night of May 26, 2019, Amir Worship was sitting on the edge…

Appeals Court Sets Damning Precedent, Rules Giving Cops the Finger is “Illegal”

Flipping the bird or raising a middle finger has been ruled to be free speech many times over. In fact, in a 14-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit addressed the specific action of flipping off cops when it ruled that the “ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity.” However, we’ve seen citizens pepper-sprayed, assaulted, and arrested for this act of free speech. And now, a North Carolina appeals court just ruled that police can initiate a chase and subsequently detain people for…

Cops Mistakenly Raid Innocent Family’s Home 3 TIMES in Just 4 Months

Chicago, IL — Because of their gross negligence and incompetence, the city of Chicago is facing a slew of lawsuits for raiding the homes of innocent people — allegedly by mistake. TFTP has reported on several of these lawsuits in which cops raided a four-year-old’s birthday party and held other children at gunpoint. Now, however, we have learned that one of these families has been raided — mistakenly — three times in just the last four months. “There was no time to breathe in between,” said Krystal Archie, 38, whose home in the 6800 block of South Dorchester Ave has…

City Announces Cops to Begin Arresting People for Being Homeless in the Wrong Part of Town

The war on homelessness has reached unprecedented heights this week as officials in California announced that they will begin arresting people in certain ares for the sole factor of being homeless. The announcement comes after a series of lawsuits were settled to get a handle on Orange County’s homeless problem. For the mere act of being homeless in the wrong part of town, cops can now arrest people. Exactly how they will know a person is homeless, remains unclear. According to a report from Fox 11: Orange County, Calif., reached a settlement Tuesday that will allow law enforcement to immediately…

Cop Arrested for Framing Dozens of People, Including Planting Meth On Innocent Grandma

Dozens of innocent people who were rotting in jail have been freed and their charges erased after the corrupt cop who put them there was caught on his own body camera planting meth on an innocent mother. as TFTP has reported, Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy Zachary Wester has since been fired and a slew of lawsuits are now rolling in. And, this week, this most insidious police officer was arrested on 52 counts of planting meth and other street drugs on entirely innocent motorists he would randomly pull over. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, agents with the Florida Department of…

Citizens Now Charged with a Crime for Repairing Their Own Car in Their Own Garage

Residents in Sacramento face fines upwards of $500 for repairing their own car in their own driveway thanks to a tyrannical law. In the land of the free, every day, local governments and municipalities trample the rights of citizens to do with their own property what they wish. Over the years we’ve seen people face jail time for the length of their grass, arrested for windmills, and even ticketed for growing food. Now, we’ve discovered a law in Sacramento, California that makes it illegal to repair a vehicle in your own garage. According to the Sacramento’s Zoning Code, it is…

Bicyclists to be issued $500 speeding tickets in Denver for going over 15 mph

It has been five and half years since Colorado first legalized recreational marijuana and began taxing its consumption. Even though the state has generated over a billion dollars in revenue from taxes and fees on this plant, cities such as Denver are struggling to generate enough money to fill the gaps in their budget. Because politicians only know how to siphon money away from people through taxation schemes, they will continue to get together and find new ways to rip people off and intrude upon their liberties. In desperate bid to generate revenue, Denver park rangers to target cyclists Denver’s…

The U.S. Supreme Court just declared that the government owns your blood and can take it without your consent

Further eroding Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights, the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can now forcibly and without warrant draw blood from unconscious drivers whom they suspect of operating a motor vehicle while drunk. In a 5-4 decision, the Court ruled in the case of Mitchell v. State of Wisconsin that an unconscious driver whom a cop deems to possibly be intoxicated constitutes an emergency situation whereby that driver’s Fourth Amendment rights are immediately suspended, and no warrant is necessary to draw that driver’s blood – even when there’s an opportunity to obtain a warrant. The case involves a…

Indiana Is Still Arguing That It’s Constitutional To Seize Your Car for Driving 5 MPH Over the Speed Limit

After losing at the U.S Supreme Court, the state of Indiana still hasn’t given up its argument that there are virtually no Eighth Amendment limits on what it can seize using civil asset forfeiture. In oral arguments before the Indiana Supreme Court last week, Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher said the state’s position that it would be constitutional to seize any and every car that went over the speed limit—a line of argument that elicited laughter from the nation’s highest court last year—hasn’t budged. “This is the position that we already staked out in the Supreme Court when I was…

WATCH: Cops Detain Entire Bar, Seal Off All Exits, Force EVERYONE to Submit to Record Check

Michigan City, IN — A video detailing the utter disregard for the Constitution that some police departments in the United States have has been shared with the Free Thought Project. The sheer scope of the violation is up there in the most egregious cases on which we’ve ever reported here at TFTP. An entire bar was unlawfully detained, held against their will, and forced to submit their identification to police officers who ran all of their details through a police database. The Free Thought Project has reported on multiple instances in which entire groups of people were detained and forced…

Cops Dress Up Like Road Workers to Ticket People Talking on Phones, Not Wearing Seat Belts

The Free Thought Project has reported on many stories over the years about police schemes designed to separate the citizens from their money but carried out under the ostensible notion of “keeping you safe.” The most recent case comes out of Marietta, Georgia this week in which cops are dressing up like construction workers to ticket people for talking on phones, not wearing seat belts, and other victimless crimes like window tint. Several agencies in the area have teamed up to “catch” distracted drivers who’d dare talk on their cell phones while driving and folks riding without their seat belts…

Alabama Passes New Law Allowing Church to Create Its Own Police Force

The separation of church and state in the United States has taken yet another blow—this time in Alabama. Republican Governor Kay Ivey has signed legislation allowing a Presbyterian Church to perform state-like functions by establishing its own police force for its churches and schools. The law, which was approved during the most recent legislative session, permits the Birmingham-based Briarwood Presbyterian Church to establish a private law enforcement agency that would have the power to make arrests if crimes are committed on church grounds or on its private school campuses, according to the Associated Press. Officials at the church claim that…

Texas Is About To Make Sex Jokes On Campus A Criminal Offense

Why is this Republican state acting like the Obama administration? Republican lawmakers seem to have a better grip than their Democratic colleagues on the inherent censorship of so-called free speech zones and viewpoint-based security fees. David French of National Review counted eight states that have passed campus free-speech bills in less than six months, most recently Texas. He has one major quibble with the new Texas law: its failure to define a phrase that dictates when students can be punished for disruptions. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which French used to lead, added another concern: failure to specify an enforcement mechanism, whether…

10-year-old Maryland boy questioned by police after he played with toy money

A Maryland mother is raising alarms after her 10-year-old son with disabilities was questioned by police at his school after he played with toy money on a school bus. In a Change.org petition, Tiffany Kelly called out police in Montgomery County, Maryland, for what she said was “over-policing of minority children.” She also criticized officials at her son’s school for not calling her to let her know about the incident with a police officer in mid-May. “I was completely disregarded as my son’s parent,” she wrote in the petition, which had garnered more than 400 signatures as of Wednesday morning.…

France’s Le Pen to go on trial for tweeting gruesome IS images

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen has been ordered to stand trial for tweeting pictures of Islamic State atrocities, a judicial source told AFP on Wednesday. Le Pen shared the gruesome images in December 2015, a few weeks after IS jihadists killed 130 people in attacks in Paris. A judge in the western Paris suburb of Nanterre ordered that the National Rally leader stand trial on charges of circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity” and that can be viewed by a minor. The charges carry a maximum sentence of three years in prison…

Police chief gives $575 ticket for tossing cigarette butt out window

Victoria Chief Constable Del Manak doesn’t mess around when it comes to littering and fire safety. The chief recently doled out a hefty ticket after a 21-year-old driver flicked a cigarette butt out of his Ford Mustang while Manak was driving nearby. “575 reasons to not throw your lit cigarette out the car window in front of @vicpdcanada,” he tweeted. “Happened in front of me on the hwy.” CONTINUE @ WHORE MEDIA

Cancer Patient Who Bought Marijuana To Self-Medicate Sentenced to 4 Years in Prison

A cancer patient from Montgomery, Illinois, has been sentenced to four years in prison for ordering a 42-pound package of chocolate marijuana edibles to self-medicate. The day after he pleaded guilty, the state legalized recreational marijuana. Thomas J. Franzen says he ordered 430 marijuana-infused chocolate bars from a California dispensary in 2014 in order to abate some of his symptoms, such as nausea. He pleaded guilty on May 30 to possession of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis, which carries a prison term of four to 14 years. Prosecutors dropped the more serious charge of trafficking over 5,000 grams of cannabis, which could…

State May Vaccinate Children in Its Custody, Even Over Parents’ Objection

From N.J. Div. of Child Protection & Permanency v. J.B. (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div.): The age appropriate immunizations required by N.J.A.C. 3A:51-7.1(a)(2) are a reasonable means of ensuring the health and safety of the children in the care and custody of the Division, especially during a measles outbreak. Parental rights must yield to the safety and well-being of Son and Daughter under these circumstances. See, e.g., Sadlock, 137 N.J.L. at 88 (“[T]he police power of a state must be held to embrace, at least, such reasonable regulations established directly by legislative enactment as will protect the public health and the public safety.” (quoting Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11, 25 (1905))).…
