aren't real world and the situations they deal with are a lot more normal than the ones going to SCOTUS. That being said SCOTUS is so open to political and financial influence from corporations that they should be ashamed of themselves for selling votes on the court to the highest bidder.
did this Rakofsky go to? How did he manage to pass the bar exam? It's not just the legal profession - the medical profession is just as bad at dealing with members who don't follow the rules or are just plain incompetent. The associations have a huge interest in protecting their own which far outweighs interest in protecting the public. Still find it hard to believe that such a twit got through law school and passed the bar exam.
Must be copied from the Gestapo manuals. Hopefully they are able to translate the German into English. Do the NYC cops now arrest Jews for simply being there?
Just shows that way too many big city police departments are no longer to be trusted. I am more afraid of the cops in Boston than of muggers or addicts. You can get arrested for simply taking a photograph of a cop arresting someone in Boston/Cambridge. Great way to scare off tourists.
are open to bribery, whether they are Democrats or Republicans. It's interesting to see them put out an actual price tag on bribes though. Bribery is endemic in our government, whether it's Congress, the White House, the FTC, the DOJ, the SCOTUS, or the FCC. Special interest groups simply buy laws. We have the worst government money can buy.
The feds fully believe there is no such thing as peaceful protesters - they believe they are all terrorists at heart. Constitutional protections are a joke to the feds anyway. The peaceful protesters are lucky they didn't get scooped up and sent to Gitmo.
the SCOTUS is much like the other government branches - open to bribery and making rulings where a justice clearly has a conflict of interest. The judges have money, own stock, and naturally will rule in favor of companies where they have stock. The judges are very much influenced by politics - be it from the outside organizations, religious groups, the White House, Congress, or the federal spooks. It all adds up to an organization that was set up to protect the constitution, but now protects special interest groups. Lots of the important rulings from the past would never be made today.
to make sure you get no browsers. I love browsing in stores and don't always carry cash. I don't "showroom". If a store told me I had to pay $5 to go in, that would be the last time I went near the place.
a member of the Georgia legislature to understand the Constitution? Or even cares for that matter... Many politicians, especially the less honest ones, get satirized regularly. Maybe he can try his luck in court or getting the legislature to pass a law making insults a crime.
that it's a lot easier to find fake terrorists than to find real ones. After all, fake terrorists aren't going to shoot you or blow things up. Has the FBI and DOJ become too cowardly to find actual terrorists or are there actually too few terrorists for the FBI to find? I keep thinking the DOJ doesn't really care about keeping Americans safe anyway; only about promoting their own "success".
that the states always side with the cops. The cops firmly believe that they are above the law and should be able to do whatever they d*** well please. They always say "if you have nothing to hide..", but they firmly believe that doesn't apply to them. The "internal affairs" departments exist solely to absolve cops of misbehavior and/or recommend mild punishment for criminal action. Plus the police unions are even more firm that cops do no wrong.
Why is anyone surprised at all? None of the federal spooks care whether their actions are legal or not; they fully believe the end justifies the means. DOJ, DEA, CIA, and all the others routinely break the law and get away with it. They know full well that no one can punish them in any meaningful way.
is far far more important to police departments than protecting citizens. The big reason for having internal affairs departments is to do anything possible to shield officers from the consequences of their own misconduct, while supposedly making sure that officer misconduct is not tolerated. It's a fact of life in our world.
have a group called "internal affairs" which in theory is supposed to investigate police misconduct. In the real world the internal affairs people do everything they possibly can to cover up police misconduct.
In Boston, the police lost a big case for seizing and arresting a man simply taking video of cops beating someone. The police lost and the governor told the cops to stop doing that. Two days later, the police again arrested someone for taking video of a cop. They simply do whatever they want to do, regardless of the law.
