White House Petition: Classify Police Accountability Group “Cop Block” as Domestic Terrorists

[ssba]

A petition has been filed on the official whitehouse.gov petition page calling for the United States government to classify the controversial police accountability group Cop Block as domestic terrorists.

Cop Block is a grassroots organization originally founded in 2010 by Ademo Freeman. Cop Block is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goal of police accountability, the groups website copblock.org says.

Copblock says it wants to make police accountable for their actions. The organization’s members draw attention to police abuses that happen across the country, and work to film police in order to force transparency and accountability within their ranks.

The petition, entitled, “Officially label and classify any variation of “CopBlock.Org” members as Domestic Terrorists with DHS,” accuses the decentralized police accountability organization of promoting violence.

“CopBlock.Org and its affiliates on social media are often applauding and encouraging violence towards law enforcement officers and their families,” the petition page says. “At times, they are even directly causing said violence in their communities, and then supporting each other online or in person for their illegal activities. I believe that many people who are active in this organization are committing terroristic acts by inspiring, inciting, or taking parts in acts that are designed to take human lives in cold blood for political gain.”

The petition, which was filed on September, 19 by an unknown person appears to have stirred up some reactions from other groups around the country.

The National Police Wives Association, along with a group calling themselves Police Blotter have called for a massive Facebook blitz against Cop Block.

“Call to all members. It has came to our attention that there is a petition circulating for the removal of the Facebook page ‘Cop Block,'” a National Police Wives facebook posts says. “We are asking members to report the page during 6-8pm CDT tonight from your personal facebook page. Or goal is to have 30,000+ reports asking for this page to be removed.”

In an ironic move of instant karma, it appears the National Police Wives Association Facebook page has been shut down. It had around 60,000 likes. The Cop Block Facebook page remains up.

Cop Block has remained vigilant throughout the attack.

They have become an easy target for reactionary analysts pushing back against the tide of condemnation of American police tactics in the wake of ongoing events in Ferguson, Missouri, where protestors still continue to rally against police brutality.

The group and its members were even openly criticized by Bill O’Reilly recently on an episode of The O’Reilly Factor.

On CopBlock.org their nonviolent stance is clearly defined.

“Those of us who write for and are responsible for CopBlock.org affirm that violence is not condoned except in the defense of self or others,” the website states. “While we recognize the rights of other individuals to use the CopBlock name, we do not recognize those that do not affirm and live by that statement.”

Cop Block has thanked their fans for their support.

The petition has garnered only minimal support and is not on pace to succeed in gaining the appropriate number of signatures to be considered by the United States government.

    people who buy into this are small minded idiots who have no mental capacity to formulate any other possible scenario and have to be spoon fed what to think. they are unable to create their own original thoughts based in reality so they turn to fear mongering propagandists to formulate their opinions on things they have no knowledge of. Not to mention the gigantic conflict of interests of these information gatekeepers who are corporately funded by the same companies that make the missiles and tanks to be used in the war they are pushing for. Ever notice how there is never an actual progressive debate on any of the huge issues facing us today?

    This entire Middle East push for war is about resource control, the US does not give a shit about war lords or dictators unless they control something that US companies want. This is all about long term resource control of the entire population well into the future. Think about it. Resources are finite and there is only so much to go around on this planet and whoever controls the resources (oil, fresh water, gold, silicon, etc.) will control the direction of humanity. Its not that hard to understand. Average people are thinking in terms of 1, 5, 10 or 20 year periods, goverments and companies are thinking 50, 100, 200.

    Here is US General Wesley Clark saying how this was on the books before 9/11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RC1Mepk_Sw

    Stop being so damn clueless. Stop watching corporate funded news (news thats paid for is not news, its propaganda). Stop listening to politicians who compulsively lie. Stop believing the US Goverment gives a shit about you, they don’t. The PEOPLE that make up the government care about self preservation and will jump at any opportunity to enhance themselves. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU, YOUR FAMILY, THE CONSTITUTION, OR THE US AS A NATION. They’re literally bribed (sorry, lobbied) by large corporations not to care and to push damaging policy through. That’s how we end up with companies with regional monopolies (Comcast) and others who are attempting to patent seeds and control food (Monsanto). If you think the US is capitalistic you are a fucking dolt.

    This never was conspiracy theory, it is reality and those who are too afraid to face the facts are experiencing Stockholm Syndrome. You believe the utter bullshit that is put in front of you by those who clearly have an agenda and you lap it up like mindless farm animals. Conspiracy theory is just a term use to marginalize people. It drives a wedge between the population and keeps the whole of humanity from progressing positively. Notice all the race issues lately? Divide and conquer scheme at work.

    And just for thought, how could the NSA with all its vast spying power not see ISIS coming to power? They know every website, every call, every text, every email that is made in the US (and probably most if not all of the planet) but somehow like serendipitous magic a super scary terrorist group appears in the exact same country the US wanted to bomb just a year ago, but was stopped by the outcry of the American people. Pretty fucking coincidental huh?

    Turn off your TVs. You are paying money to be marketed at and propagandized.

    Why would the police not want to be watched? They have cameras up now at every turn, they have fake cell towers to listen to our phone calls, they always say we shouldn’t be concerned if we have nothing to hide, what do they have to hide?

      I HAVE AN AGENDA, IT IS CALLED COUNTER TERRORISM OF ALL POTENTIAL THREATS TO NATIONAL SECURITY DONE BY BAD POLICE WHO YES DO IMPOSE A LABEL ON OTHER POLICE THROUGH THEIR ACTIONS ONLY THROUGH INACTION, OR OVER ACTION LIKE THE 2 NEWSPAPER WOMEN DELIVERING IN A TRUCK DURING THE ERIC DORNER SITUATION,. NOW IF THE GOVERNMENT WON’T CALL DORNER HIMSELF A TERRORIST OF THE DOMESTIC SORT FOR TARGETING THE FAMILIES OF HIS TARGETS, AND THE GOVERNMENT WON’T LABEL THE LAPD THAT INJURED 2 WOMEN BY THINKING IT WAS HALO OR SOME SHIT THEN I HAVE TO ASSUME THAT EVERY SINGLE POLICE OFFICER NEEDS TO BE INTERNED LIKE JAPANESE AMERICANS WERE IN WWII UNDER NATIONAL GUARD MP CONTROL IN A STATE OF FEDERAL MARSHALL LAW DIRECTLY FROM THE PRESIDENT.
