Dr. Tyler Kokjohn, Jeff Ritzmann and Jeremy Vaeni – Project Core

Radio Misterioso

The most important connection we have to examining the paranormal are the witnesses. For too long, researchers have concentrated on how testimony can fit in to preconceived notions of anomalous abduction episodes, psychic occurrences, and ghost sightings. Fields of inquiry are neatly divided into UFOs, cryptozoology, paraspychology, and ghost hunting.

The aim of  Project Core is to do away with strict categorization and let witnesses tell their stories without filtering. People who experience apparent entity visitations often report psychic episodes, strange animals, poltergeist phenomena and many other weird events, and the project’s anonymous online reporting format allowed participants to report their experiences without fear of ridicule or censure. Three of the directors of Project Core are credentialed scientists with doctorates in their fields.

Jeremy Vaeni and Jeff Ritzmann both have a history of extraordinary paranormal encounters and Dr. Tyler Kokjohn is a biochemist with a keen interest in these areas not normally examined by science. They joined me for a discussion of what was found, and what it might mean for our understanding of these seemingly disparate subjects. This may be one of the first glimpses of future paranormal research.

Jeremy made a music request for “Stay Hungry” by Twisted Sister, so that’s at the end!

Cleveland Police Stalk Tamir Rice Memorial

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

Last week I attended a Tamir Rice vigil, this past weekend I went to a protest for John Crawford and in both places the police showed up. They claim they’re just doing their jobs, keeping everyone safe, but we all know that’s bullshit. In fact, the reason the police are at these gatherings directly relates to the blog I wrote last week – “What Cops Say without Actually Saying Anything” – fear. They want you to know that even if, who are we kidding – when they terrorize your communities they’ll still be around, maybe not the exact same guy, but another stormtrooper nonetheless.

Take today’s adventure in the beloved Police State US(S)A for example. Virgil, DEO and I went to Cudell Rec Center, where Tamir Rice was gunned down by Cleveland police employees, only to find a Cleveland Police cruiser there as well. What kind of person would sit near one of your own colleagues crime scene? Are the intentions of the Cleveland Police to intimidate the public? Why aren’t they begging for the Rice Family’s forgiveness instead of placing another armed guard, with no personality, on the grave of a 12 year old boy. Sure, Tamir held a toy gun; yes, he was pointing it at people but these actions do not warrant death. The officer that shot Tamir barely lets his feet hit the ground – literally because he slipped afterwards – before shooting and, as sad as this case is, it’s just taken a whole step further when you find out the police are camping out on spot where one of their colleagues ended the life of a 12 year old boy. How freaking creepy is that?

Stephen J. Maiorino – Florida Police Officer Held Without Bail for Rape

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

Rapist Cop

Rapist Cop

It’s bad enough to have your night out end with a police interaction but to have it end the way it did for this 20-year old from Boynton Beach is down right awful. After what seemed to be a fun night out on the town, the 20 year old victim and her friend were pulled over for a DUI. I’m certain the 20 year old didn’t expect that her friend, who was on his way to jail for a DUI, was going to have the easier night out of the two, but he most certainly did.

On October 15, employees with the Boynton Police Department stopped a vehicle and arrested the driver for DUI. This left the 20 year old passenger stranded and a police officer was dispatched to pick her up and transport her back to the station, where relatives would pick her up. Unfortunately, the officer sent to pick her up was Stephen J. Maiorino, who was on this episode of TruTV’s Most Shocking, and he had different plans for how the evening would end.

After picking up the victim Maiorino drove her to the police station where, according to court documents, he told her to perform oral sex on him or she would face a DUI charge too. Out of fear for her life the woman complied but the assault didn’t end there. Maiorino then drove the victim away from the police station and with one hand held her face down on the hood of his patrol cruiser, while his other hand held his police issued firearm. Maiorino then took his victim back to the police station and made one last threat. He pointed his firearm at her and told her that if she told anyone, he’d kill her, her family, and anyone else she told.

Thankfully, the woman had the courage to report the incident and led investigators to the scene of the crime, where a bundle of DNA evidence was found, including a condom with the victims DNA and that of Maiorino. As the video below details, Maiorino voluntarily turned over his clothes (which also had matching DNA from the condom found at the scene of the crime) and then walked himself into the Palm Beach County jail – where he’s being held without bail.

I guess most who read this, especially you CommonSense, would believe the system worked here, that a bad cop is off the streets. Yet, its the system of policing that allowed this guy to have such ‘authority’ over another and to instill so much fear into a person that they’d do things they normally wouldn’t. No doubt, Stephen J. Maiorino is responsible for his actions that night and I hope the victim can find some sort of justice, but we have to take a look at the bigger picture. This perceived sense of safety, integrity and honesty amongst police officer is a joke. Would this rape even have been possible if Maiorino didn’t have this false sense of security working for him? Would this woman had gotten into any man’s car? Of course, I don’t know for certain, but I’d be willing to guess not.

As much as “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights,” they also don’t mean “I’m a good guy who’s here to help you” either. Remember this poor woman’s story the next time you’re thinking of calling the police to give you a hand.
