Mar 15 - NYPD declares martial law in Brooklyn
 

 

[pic - click to view]




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.

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.”

According to FIERCE, the “frozen zone” in East Flatbush is being used to prevent media from covering the protests and arrests. Meanwhile, people inside the “frozen zone” can be subjected to arrest merely by exercising their constitutional rights.

“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.”

An arbitrary dictate that arrests protest and free speech, set forth by the institution that is itself the target of the protests, creates a potentially dangerous precedent of placing the NYPD beyond reproach.

Occupy Austin reposted this poignant summary of events by Jen Roesch as they were unfolding in Brooklyn last night:


“East Flatbush, Brooklyn is under martial law as the NYPD declares it a ‘frozen zone’. Media are being monitored and kept from moving and reporting freely. Dozens of arrests and much brutality. Kimani was shot in the back seven times; a witness is sure he was unarmed; multiple reports are coming out that the police had been waging a campaign of harassment against the young man (including taunting him about a friend who had died in a car accident and threatening to shoot him when he tried to leave). This is just blocks from where Shantel Davis was shot, dragged from her car and left to bleed to death in the street last summer. After that shooting, police went to all the surrounding delis and confiscated their surveillance videos. Residents in the neighborhood live in a state of terror. Heartbreaking, enraging, the stuff that riots are made of. This city is at a breaking point.”

Kimani Gray’s parents are scheduled to hold a press conference this evening to address the March 9 police slaying of their young son.

GREAT! Now lets march when a thug senselessly k!lls a child by a mistake when trying to k!ll someone else of our race!

I don't agree with police injustice by any means and the protests are warranted, but this same amount of outrage should be used to apprehend black k!llers in black neighborhoods.

they're protesting because people who were present when the shooting took place say that the young man did NOT have a gun.

Witnesses said he didn't have one and nypd known to be possibly the most corrupt police in america also how the fvck can u justify (my bad I got bad memory wut was it 7?) Bullets to the back wen the kid was trying to run away...police not supposed to shoot unless they're in immediate danger which clearly wasn't the case....one shot to the leg cuda been justifiable bi*ch a.ss pigs were obviously tryna k!ll the kid

NYPD got that itchy finger cause most of em are fu*king pussies with a stick up their a.ss.

REally thinking every civilian has a gun and is stupid enough to shoot at a cop. "KEEP YOUR HANDS OUT OF YOUR POCKETS SIR" Like oh yeah man, you know me... bout to pull out this 22 and get it poppin. fu*king idiots.

I only met a handful of jake that actually had some logic and reasoning to them.

But there's alot of cops that are just horrible excuses of life. Disrespectful, Power driven, Racist, Scumbags.

Ummm a few questions...is this so called witness from the same neighborhood that the victim and people are rioting from? Bc if so it would make sense for her to side against the police bc she gotta live with ppl that hate the police everyday....

Oh and police shoot to k!ll fk a leg wound...you don't wanna die don't pull a gun(assuming he had one)...
