Cops Promise to Rob or Arrest Citizens Unless They Buy an Arbitrary Sticker
Post Date: 2019-04-15 10:21:17 by Deckard
Haymarket, VA Common sense, among those who work inside the state, is a rare commodity. Agents of the state, like those who work in law enforcement, often become so blinded to reality by just doing my job they throw logic and reason to the wayside, choosing authority and force instead. Nothing highlights this blind order following quite like the Haymarket police department in Virginia enforcing the requirement for citizens to purchase a $15 sticker for their vehicle and promising to steal their money if they do not comply. The vehicle stickers are part of a new extortion program rolled out by county officials in Haymarket. The sticker is not an inspection sticker to prove ...

Post Date: 2019-04-15 07:32:55 by Deckard
As TFTP reported, on Thursday, several men in black suits, surrounded by a dozen cops, raided the Ecuadorian embassy in London and kidnapped Julian Assange. Moments later, the Department of Justice released a statement charging Assange with computer hacking conspiracy for allegedly working with US Army soldier at the time, Chelsea Manning. After the charges were levied, Donald Trump took to personally denouncing anything to do with WikiLeaks, claiming I know nothing about WikiLeaks. Trumps comments highlight a trend among all those in power and their two-faced relationships with this media outlet. When WikiLeaks is exposing their political rivals, they are the ...

Issaquah, WA A Chinese immigrant who moved with his wife in 2010 to seek a better life in the United States had that life ended last year by those sworn to protect and serve.

When police entered the home, the officers found him waving his arms around yelling something. Clearly ignorant of Lengs Alzheimers diagnosis and entirely ...

Post Date: 2019-04-11 06:45:36 by Deckard
By Aaron Kesel The FBI is abusing ancestry genealogy websites by tapping into their DNA data. Whats worse, these companies are giving up users data under presumed consent that is buried in their terms and conditions, according to several reports. FamilyTreeDNA is the first company known to be cooperating directly with the FBI to give its agents access to its genealogy database, according to a BuzzFeed report. A FamilyTreeDNA spokesperson told BuzzFeed that FamilyTreeDNAs agreement with the FBI gives the agency the ability to search more than a million genetic profiles the majority of which were given by their customers without knowledge of the companys ...

Post Date: 2019-04-11 05:46:02 by Deckard
Common sense wins out...sort of.A North Carolina man who was evicted from his home last month is off the hook after neglecting to take care of his pet fish. The New Hanover County District Attorney's Office didn't drop animal cruelty charges against Michael Hinson because they realized treating a man like a criminal over a pet fish was ridiculous. Rather, authorities were forced to let Hinson off after realizing he hadn't actually broken the law. Hinson was evicted from his home on March 22. The 53-year-old did not take his pet oscar fish with him, so there was no one to feed it or provide fresh water. Several days later, cops showed up at the home and discovered the fish, ...

Florida Will Generously Allow Homeowners to Garden in Their Own Yards
Post Date: 2019-04-10 11:04:33 by Deckard
By Dagny Taggart If you live in Florida and want the freedom to plant food on your own property, I have great news for you. Late last month, the Florida Senate affirmed the right of self-reliant people statewide to grow vegetable gardens in their front yards. Here are some details on the bill from the Miami Herald: The 40-member Senate vote was 35-5. Sen. Rob Bradleys SB 82 prohibits a county or municipality from regulating vegetable gardens on residential properties, voiding any current regulations regarding the produce patches. Local governments, however, can still adopt a local ordinance or regulation that doesnt specifically target vegetable gardens, like ...
Orwellian Hate Crime Database to Be Set Up For Thought Criminals in Michigan
Post Date: 2019-04-10 10:59:08 by Deckard
Op-Ed by Joe Wright Only in a world where the novel 1984 has become the evening news can we get a states Attorney General working with the Department of Civil Rights to create a database for people committing hate and bias incidents that dont rise to the level of a crime or civil infraction. This hate crimes unit apparently comes on the advice of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which issued a report about a rise of extremism and hatred within the state of Michigan. This itself is more than ironic, since it was reported last year that the organization had to pay $3 million for falsely labeling the Quilliam Foundation as an example of ...

A Nashville producer challenges the city's crazy ban on commercial home recording studios.Elijah Shaw came to Nashville in the 1990s to study music. At first, that meant spending a lot of time on the road. "The first decade of my career, [I was] traveling all over the place and interacting with major record labels and sort of going where ever work would take me," he says. Eventually, Shaw built The Toy Box, a soundproofed home studio located in his detached garage. Being able to work at home, he says, allowed him the opportunity to raise his daughter while still tapping into one of the world's best music scenes, bringing stability to an unpredictable business. ...

Are they hunting Easter eggs or landmines?Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the paper trail: Hard-boiled lawyers made sure no kids could participate in the University of California-Berkeley's campus Easter egg hunt on Sunday without their parents first signing a waiver. Before the tykes were ushered toward the roped-off grass, parents stood in line for up to half an hour to hand in the official form for 25th Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Learning Festival. (God forbid the kids just have fun.) According to the waiver, which was obtained by Reason, the undersigned agreed that "Participation in The Activity carries with it certain risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of ...

Richmond County, GA Police officers in America have what is called officer discretion as one of their many toolsmeaning that if a police officer wants to let you go for a violation he or she thinks didnt cause any harm, they can do just that. While they cant make these decisions in cases of murder or other felonies, cops can most assuredly choose to look the other way in instances like toddlers not being able to hold themselves and peeing in public. However, a deputy in Richmond County, Georgia chose to charge a mother with a crime for that very same thing. Anyone who has had children knows that potty training isnt the easiest thing in ...
The United States' 'War on Drugs' Really Did Make Things Worse, New Research Finds
Post Date: 2019-04-06 12:40:39 by Hondo68
(Luke Pinneo/US Coast Guard) After five decades of intense and expensive policing, the United States' so-called 'war on drugs' has only created a bigger problem, a new study has found.The research is based on a unique geographic model, called NarcoLogic, that was designed to figure out how cocaine smuggling networks have adapted to US drug interception over the years. It's a perennial cat-and-mouse game that's been going on since 1971. Yet despite the government spending up to almost US$5 billion federal dollars annually on the seizure and disruption of cocaine shipments, the new model has now corroborated what critics have long suspected: the mouse is ...

Monte Scott of Muskegon Heights used a garbage can full of dirt to fill at least 15 potholes near his family's home last week.
