On FPF #128, I discuss the execution of Daniel Shaver by police officer Phillip Brailsford. The shooting occurred in January 2016 and Brailsford has been acquitted by a jury of all charges. A judge finally allowed the body cam footage to the public. I react to the video and give some analysis. I also explain how America’s are not holding out military and police to a high enough moral standard.

It was announced this morning that Ex-Mesa, AZ police officer Philip Brailsford was acquitted of second degree murder and reckless manslaughter.
This will come to no surprise to anyone familiar with criminal justice reform, being as the thin blue line of legal protection benefits the monopoly security forces throughout America. Police are all but trained to shoot first and ask questions later, and there is no better case than the deadly encounter which ended the life of Daniel Shaver. Warning, this video is very graphic, but is important to observe the near execution style tactic officer Brailsford coldly employed.
Here are the facts. Daniel Shaver (a pest control worker) was showing off his pellet gun in his hotel room, when some busybody saw the gun through a window. These guests told the hotel management, who called police, then the video linked above ensued. Panicking and obviously confused, Daniel frantically attempts to obey every single command the officer screams at him while a gun is pointed at him while begging for his life. He is told to crawl with his left ankle wrapped around his right ankle. Daniel is wearing what looks like ill fitting gym pants and pauses at one moment to pull up his pants (as a result of the commands officers were giving him), causing the officers to shoot him in response to him reaching for his waistband.
Nowhere in the video is it apparent that Mr Shaver was armed. Nowhere in the video is it apparent that this person is criminally insane. The video shows a scared young man who was gunned down in cold blood. What is apparent to me is that we have a very real problem with police violence that people have put up with for far too long.
Please consider donating to Daniels Memorial Fund, to help Daniel’s family recover from this unjust killing.

Part 3 of Jeff and Tony’s rambling session with Rob of RBV. We discuss Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian ties and campaign corruption in general, specifically as it relates to Ukranian dealings between former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and a company founded by Clinton leuitenant John Podesta and brother Tony.
Later, we move on to microgrid energy technologies being explored by states, municipalities, and even hospitals and residential complexes to create disaster redundancies, and the potential for such a movement to pressure the long standing government granted monopoly system entrenched around much of the US.

On FPF #126, I discuss three states were Hillary Clinton played a large role in the direction of the country’s future while she was Secretary of State. In Honduras, Hillary Clinton gave legitimacy to a military coup and helped elected a leader against the will of the Honduran people. A recent election stoled by a president supported by Hillary Clinton lead to protests. The protesters are being suppressed by forces trained by the US. In Yemen, a one-man election organized by Hillary Clinton set off a chain of events leading to civil war and famine. Recent fighting has lead to the split of the Houthi/Salah alliance and the death of the former president of Yemen Salah. In Libya, Hillary Clinton pushed for war against the Libyan leader Gaddafi. The death of Gaddafi led to a failed state in Libya. Competing government in Liyba are weaponizing rape and salves are openly sold.

Warren v. DC is a DC Court of Appeals case that is often cited by anarcho-capitalists and voluntaryists to support the fact that police owe no duty to protect specific individuals. In this scholarly episode of the podcast, I break down the Court’s opinion into digestible chunks. In doing so, I confirm the assertion and explain the Court’s reasoning, which ultimately does underscore the need for privatized policing.
I highly recommend that the listeners download and read the opinion for themselves. Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App. 1981).

On FPF #125, I explain the recurring failure of US foreign policy through the lens of the massacre in Bariire. In the missions that lead to the massacre, the SEALs allied themselves with former al-Shabaab fighters and used a translator know for giving false information. The SEALs failed to understand the local politics and warring tribes complicated the situation on the ground. In the end, the mission ended in a massacre, and a terror attack in October is possible blowback. These are just a few of the several reasons this mission, like all COIN operations, failed.
