DeAndre Harris beaten in Charlottesville, VA Copyright: Zach D Roberts

Last night (Monday, October 9), we have learned that the DeAndre Harris story has taken a twist that would, in a different era, be surprising. With several of DeAndre’s attackers still on the run — and police showing no interest in going after them — DeAndre just had an arrest warrant issued in his name. According to a media release issued by the Charlottesville Police Department, the warrant was for “Unlawful Wounding” (Va Code 18.2-51).

That’s right, the young man who you can see here being beaten to an inch of his life by half a dozen white supremacists will be …more

URGENT:
Help Ted Rall Fight the LA Times

Greg Palast 

In July of 2015, Charlie Beck, Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, colluded with publisher of the Los Angeles Times, Austin Beutner, to terminate Ted Rall from his position as principal Editorial Cartoonist at the LA Times. Their purpose: to censor Rall’s criticism of police brutality and corruption.

Now, Ted is suing the LA Times, and needs to raise $75,000 in one week
to keep the wheels of justice turning.
The LAPD and specifically Beck have been the target of numerous critical Rall cartoons since 2009. In 2015, Beck illegally passed documents to the LA Times which supposedly proved …more

Ted Rall is a lying, fantasist scumbag.

Or maybe, just maybe, the LA Times, complicit with the Los Angeles police, have slandered and slimed America’s toughest critic of police violence.The story:  On July 27, the LA Times fired their long-time columnist and cartoonist Ted Rall for fabricating a story of police misconduct.  The LA Times’ evidence?  A tape recording provided by the LAPD.  Problem was, the tape was muffled—possibly tampered with.

When audio experts cleaned the garbage interference on the tape—uh, oh!- the LAPD and LA Times accusations fell to pieces.

The details:  On May 11, Ted Rall wrote his umpteenth column in the LA Times, LAPD’s Crosswalk Crackdown: Don’t Police Have Something Better to do? about gang violence:  the gang is the LAPD.  This was Rall’s lightest jab of all, a satirical remembrance of when, 14 years earlier, a cop put him in handcuffs for a simple jaywalking ticket.

Unbeknownst to Rall, the jaywalker-stalker cop had recorded this big bust.  The LAPD dropped the tape on the Times.


Ted Rall’s new book-length comic, Snowden
will be released on August 25.

The police source said the recording and other info proved Rall was lying. That the tape proved that Rall had never …more
