Ferguson to reward protesters with new fines meant to fund the police

A good analogy of the State could be that of a drunken sailor... stumbling from one act of stupidity to the next.  And after a summer of violence, protest, and public awareness on police brutality and the profiling of blacks, the Ferguson city council is rewarding these efforts by forwarding a program in which they plan to fill the city's coffers and salaries of these same police officers with... new fines ...

New FBI report validates cops using more force than necessary against citizens

Ever since 9/11, and in particular after the drawdown of the Iraq War in 2009, local police officers and departments have become as militarized as the equipment they received as excesses from the Department of Defense and Homeland Security were provided to local law enforcement under the ideological 'War on Terror' label.  However, a new FBI report that came out on Nov. 30 shows that while police aggression ...

Ferguson, MO has now emerged into the Negro Spring

There are always symbols in specific times of history that speak volumes to both current and future populations.  An innocuous movie from a decade ago called V for Vendetta resurrected the well known myth of patriot and anarchist Guy Fawkes, and brought the history of defiance and rebellion front and center into the discourse of American thought and rhetoric. But an even greater global phenomenon that was s ...

Black Congressman breaks away from Obama dialectic to introduce bill to de-militarize police

While Congressman Hank Johnson isn't known in many circles as the sharpest tool in the shed, as noted several times in the past, including this incident in 2010 where Johnson questioned the Commander of U.S. Pacific Command on the potential that troops on Guam were causing the island to tip over and capsize into the ocean, it appears however that the elected official from Georgia is willing to break away fr ...

St. Louis protester: “The revolution will not be televised”

They say history doesn't repeat itself, but almost 50 years later, the United States is in an eerily similar place to that time in many aspects.  In 1965, the Vietnam War was escalated by President Johnson at the same time race riots began a summer of hell in cities like the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles.  These riots would eventually spread over the next three years to encompass several other major tow ...

Imagine this.  One of the most crime ridden cities in America, which was formally run into bankruptcy by liberal and corrupt politicians and has now been forced to limit first responder service to less than 80% of the municipality, is calling for citizens to not only bear arms, but to also stand up against criminals and crimes being perpetrated against themselves and their neighbors. And the individual who ...

Official in Massachusetts calls for home invasions by police on gun owners

Lawmakers in the state of Massachusetts have been leading the way in legislating 'justifiable' usurpations of the Constitution for many decades, and their attacks on the Bill of Rights have only increased since 9/11.  However, with the current wave of gun control programs sweeping Democratically controlled states along the East and West coast, one legislator is doubling down by calling for legalized home in ...

  Criminal defense lawyers are challenging a U.S. government practice of hiding the tips that led to some drug investigations, information that the lawyers say is essential to fair trials in U.S. courts. The practice of creating an alternate investigative trail to hide how a case began - what federal agents call "parallel construction" - has never been thoroughly tested in court, lawyers and law profes ...

  Imagine you’re 18 years old and a police officer offers you a chunk of weed, asks you to smoke it in front of him and promises not to arrest you for doing so. It’s not a drug-induced fantasy. It’s the subject of a lawsuit. “Occupy” protesters in Minneapolis were used as “guinea pigs” in a government drug research program, their lawyer told a federal magistrate judge this week. The hearing follows a F ...
