NYPD Declares Martial Law In Brooklyn * 2
    #17958925 - 03/15/13 05:45 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

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.

The worst aspect of this whole thing is that its being heavily censored by all the major media outlets.

"The illusion of freedom will exist only so long as it's cost effective to retain it." That quote comes to mind from someone's sig line around here. It's accurate too, of course. Only the governor or president may declare martial law and what the NYPD is doing is wholly illegal under the American system. I'd like to see the people arrested go to the state police and FBI and press charges for forcible kidnapping and abduction and a long string of lawsuits. Make them pay and go bankrupt. Sue them personally as well as the department and the chief of police for conspiracy to abduct you too. That is what is occuring. Any citizen who kills police officers in this situation is also completely justified imo. If the NY governor were to do the right thing it would be to send in the national guard to machine gun the police abducting citizens and depriving them of their rights.

Yep. One of the reasons I'm ashamed of my American homeland. We're the antithesis of freedom going around overthrowing elected governments, running secret torture prisons, and doing targeted assassinations, and by far the highest incarceration rate in the world. But tell that to someone who watches network TV and they think America is a free country instead of having a systems that is a shame to them and the world. :ashamed:

you forgot to mention that the "protestors" are rioting, looting, and attacking people.

I hate to say this but don't black people know how to protest without turning it into an excuse for wild snatch and grab looting and robbery?

the reason they are protesting is stupid too - total race baiting again of the likes of trsyvon martin.  the kid who was shot pointed a gun at the cops, good riddance.

There was no race baiting going on. Just people fed up with police abuse like "stop and frisk" targeting black people. This is race baiting and not what happened except to Bruce Willis:


We need a man to stand up to the cops and show the system what is up. That we are mad as hell and we aren't going to take it anymore.


We need a man like Christopher Dorner.

I don't think this is about race at all (and I'm well known for racist comments and racist trolling here)...

I think this is literally what the article said- its a group of people living in fear.  They boil over and lash out.  Violence is born of fear.  Sure, a large number of them will be minorities, that's just the socioeconomic factor in play, and the neighborhood the shooting(s) happened to occur in.

Sad fact is, whether that kid had a gun or not, people are a lot less likely to react in a, what you might call "white" way (the way things would probably proceed if a young white male was shot 7 times in the back in an upper middle class neighborhood) than when it happens in a "black" neighborhood, where the police can easily claim there's heavy drug and gang activity, the kid had a gun, they were justified/feared for their lives, etc.

In upper middle class neighborhoods, you have people who are doctors and lawyers, maybe some minor politicians like city councilmen, people who golf with the mayor, etc... in minority areas, people have far fewer resources and connections to use to get justice.  It's gotta be frustrating as fuck.

Even if the kid had a .38 as the cops are saying, they shot him 7 times IN THE BACK.  If someone is in my home and I shoot them in the back, I go to jail because they must have been "trying to flee" and not posing a clear and present danger to my life (VA doesn't have castle laws, like TX and other states).

Dorner was a fuckoff who did not get a bloody and painful enough death.

It's retarded expensive, that's for sure.
I like the city, but after having been to a good amount of other cities
I don't think I could ever love it
unless I was slightly less than rich.

the rioters chant things like "NYPD KKK"

It's definitely race baiting and a race riot.


also don't be a parrot of the uninformed lying race mob.

HE WAS NOT SHOT 7 TIMES IN THE BACK

that is a lie the riot mob have been spouting exactly like they did with the trayvon martin case.

this is how these retard riot mobs are perpetuated by uninformed people like you spreading lies and ignorance.


he was shot 3 TIMES in the back, most likely as he twisted away after being hit in the front by the first 4.

The pigs say he had a gun and his family says he didn't. I've spent a pretty lot of time in Flatbush and never thought it was that bad. I doubt they could effectively police themselves though. The people don't know what they want and the cops are stuck in the middle of a shitty situation.

It's hard to say. It's still pretty easy for the bacon to plant a gun. But yeah, you're probably right.
