The NYPD Declares Martial Law in Brooklyn ?

On the heels of three nights of protests over the police slaying of 16 year old Kimani Gray, the NYPD has turned the East Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn into a State of Exception, claiming emergency powers to suspend the constitutional guarantees of the citizenry.

The people regularly targeted by police harassment and violence, overwhelmingly the city’s poor and minority populations, have taken to the streets to speak out against the NYPD’s draconian tactics. The police have in turn responded with even further harsh measures by suppressing the right of the people to voice dissatisfaction with that very same police force.

Cops kettled protesters at Wednesday night’s candlelight vigil, resulting in 46 arrests. Police even arrested Kimani Gray’s distraught sister, Mahnefeh.

Stop protesting and start TEACHING

East Flatbush is a sh*t hole. The streets are full of guns and there are 2-3 shootings in that area a night. No parenting, no moral values, and no respect for human life. Guns are used not used there for defense. They are used for offense. Until the culture changes, it will always be a battle zone. As long as it's a battle zone, the police will have their fingers on the trigger.


I thought I was the only one standing

I live near there.

its a bloody war zone. crips vs bloods vs ms 13. it is hell on earth. the kid is no innocent. check is arrest record. drop a bomb on that area. google some pics if you want to see for yourself. bloomberg is a nazi but this area is a freakin war zone

Great Example

...of how NYC gun control laws ensure only the criminals have guns and can hold entire neighborhoods hostage. The state creates the conditions
where its citizens demand more government solutions (in this case more cops with guns).

You are the only second person with brains

The rest are idle anarchists.

I would like to see "Fishy" going hysterical if a gang ranksacked her house and peed in her aqua-tank and on her survival food storage while she was on vacation.


Lets see the reality show "news" put a spin on this or cover it up. Mostly they will just stay silent. LOL

Yes, goodness and truth are winning. All those participating in the corruption, from the local departments all the way to the White House, will soon be brought to light.

Give 'em enough rope and they'll hang themselves. Things are out of control for the crooks running the show. Kind of funny to watch them squirm and scurry....like a cat covering do do. lol

I do feel bad for the young man who lost his life. The murderers should be fully brought to justice....But then again, Obombya's 40,000 civilian deaths in Libya needs justice too.

Marshall Law "Declared" in Brooklyn

...but was already really being practiced throughout all of Bloomberg's fiefdom with "stop and frisk" and myriad other NYPD mayorial sanctioned abuses.

Clamping down

First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. I believe we are in the fight you stage now. Soon we will win.

The citizens of New York need to be armed to the teeth...

They should be able to step out of their houses and apartments with loaded shotguns, rifles and pistols and take back control from the street gangs which includes the most ruthless gang of all known as the NYPD.

Another crazy anarchist

detached from reality. Your pea-size mind assumes that people (all strong young able men and women) sits all day long home to protect their property with guns. Who will protect their property when they are at work or vacation?

You are right,

We are helpless, weak and unable to do anything for ourselves. Please Daddy Govt and Mr Police Force protect us!

There are good cops I am sure, I haven't had the chance to met them. Then again, I try to avoid any contact with police because it almost always results in the loss property in administrative fines.

Anyway, the police and their wonderful unions are LITERALLY bankrupting cites, counties and soon entire states with their ludicrous comp packages.

I hope you enjoy the poverty, at least you will be safe, right?


Liberty = Responsibility

You are a tiny minority

whose anger is driven by poor economic situation. In 1917, people like you would be fighting greedy capitalists. Even though USSR history is known, most poor would still fight 1% rich today. Yet, some think they possess the truth and fight arbitrary scapegoats: bankers, Zionists, police, ...


And you seriously think that the POLICE is guarding your home when you are away at work? If you believe that I've got some great swampland to sell you!

You are like a child, bubbling

Cognitive judgement which produces a restraining effect on even dumb criminals DOES incorporate the potential force of law inforcement system.

I live in ny

that area is a pit with the bloods gang running wild. forget martial law send a damn bomb over there. or withdraw all police and let the savages destroy themselves.

I agree

since you know what you are talking about. But hate and vengeance is not the right approach. Just stop funding their food and housing, gradually. The poor and unresponsible will wither away fast.

bomb bk!

its not hateful to describe the reality of the situation. for whatever reason the area is a war zone. gangs running wild attacking innocents. google some video ofthe so called protest and let your eyes guide you to the truth

Don't infringe the right of the people to peaceably assemble!

Blowback applies domestically.

Free includes debt-free!

You have no idea about natural

individual rights. Ron Paul did not tell you much to parrot in that regard. Individual natural rights apply only to private property. The public property must be regulated. Constitution, Amendments and local laws do just that.

Public Property

When everybody owns something, only the biggest gang with the guns owns it.

Clever description

of public parks, museums and universities. Surely, as a person who had found the truth, you would like to bring a tank or at least a machine gun to a palyground or classroom. Why not? You pay for it. What about your natural right to talk over teachers? Why not? You pay for their salaries.

yeah? so what's your point

we the people own it all
our blood,sweat and tears financed it all
and we the people are the government
is it fair for others to create laws
that hinder what we can do with our own
remember them that sit in the halls of congress
are not lawmakers,they can legally create nothing
that goes against the will of us (the people)

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Why not

to quote from a bible then stare in a stupor waiting for a miracle?

deacon's picture

why not

and sorry,i didn't understand the rest of your comment

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Individual natural rights are applied only to private property.

Public property is regulated. You may pay your share as in a collective, but you do not own such a property to claim freedom of action by default. You have a natural right to defend yourself but you do not have a natural right for any product or services produced by others.

In short, Ron Paul should have studied Ayn Rand better. Natural rights do not come from god or nature. They come from reason.

From the Article Bob posted below

The NYPD euphemistically calls the public spaces in which the Constitutional rights of the people are suspended “frozen zones.’

Allison Kilkenny wrote about the NYPD’s so-called “frozen zones” in December 2011:

‘The ‘frozen zone’ is an arbitrary, official police business-sounding title that has absolutely zero legal merit. It’s something the NYPD made up, just as the ‘First Amendment zone’ is something [Los Angeles Mayor Antonio] Villaraigosa made up to suppress media coverage of the Occupy raids.’

“It basically means the area is under temporary martial law,” writes FIERCE. “The last times the NYPD declared a Frozen Zone was on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and during the beginning of OWS.”
