1410991360000-Pa-Police-Barracks-ShootingCANADENSIS, PA. — Nine days after a gunman opened fire in a deadly ambush at a state police barracks, authorities have had no contact with the suspect they describe as a self-taught survivalist despite an intensive search that shut down the heavily wooded community where he lived with his parents.

Though a shelter-in-place order had been lifted in the Pocono Mountains community where police have focused their search, they continued to urge residents to be vigilant Sunday as the manhunt continues for Eric Frein.

A state police spokesman said no contact had been made with Frein, who was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list after the Sept. 12 shooting at a nearby police barracks that left one trooper dead and a second wounded.

Police on Friday descended on the community where Frein, 31, had lived with his parents, ordering residents to stay inside their homes and preventing anyone outside the neighborhood from returning to their homes. Law enforcement officers wearing bulletproof vests and armed with rifles scoured the woods as helicopters buzzed overhead.

I understand that the families of those killed by Police shootings are upset. I also understand a parents feelings when their child or young adult is killed when in their their kids are law abiding citizens.

Does that mean when a protest is organized does violence, robbery, destruction, looting need to be a part? Why does a bakery need to be burned 2 miles away that nothing to do with the shooting. Take an innocent bystander gang beaten because his color was the same as the cop?

To assume is to be an ASS people. If the police have to prove we are guilty of a crime then why can’t they be treated the same way? Ever think that maybe the police are more aggressive these days is because of the violence and disrespect they face everyday!

A whopping 99 percent of all complaints regarding police brutality are left uninvestigated in central New Jersey, according to a Courier News and Home News Tribune report published this week

.Between 2008 and 2012, citizens “filed hundreds of complaints alleging brutality, bias and civil rights violations by officers in more than seven dozen police departments in Central Jersey,” the report reads.

However, it adds that only 1 percent of these complaints — seven percentage points below the national average of 8 percent — were “upheld by the internal units tasked with investigating complaints against their colleagues.”In the majority of cases, the police agencies reportedly “either ‘exonerated’ the officers, dismissed the complaints as frivolous, determined that they did not have sufficient evidence or simply never closed the investigation.

“Although an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union called these numbers “serious,” the report quotes a South Brunswick police chief who insists that the agencies “do a good job of self-policing.” Representatives of the Union County and Somerset Prosecutor’s Offices were also quoted as saying that investigations are conducted when they are warranted.
