If cash can be a "person" now, and if smaller groups of cash are innocent, isn't charging a larger collection a violation of the first amendment? They are restricting the right of the cash "peaceably to assemble".
It was later revealed that the "reason" ICE secretly delayed returning the domain was that it kept asking the RIAA for the evidence that Dajaz1 had violated the law (as an RIAA rep had initially sworn to an ICE agent)
So the RIAA and ICE worked together to deceive and deprive the rightful owners of their websites. From a legal perspective is this collusion? Is there any minimum amount of evidence that ICE needs to confiscate whatever they want?
I've taken my kids through the Wisconsin warehouse tour once almost every year for about the last 7 years, and they haven't updated much. But the kids still enjoy it as much every time. There's plans to close the Wisconsin warehouse, but apparently no timeline. Maybe the eventual closing of the site is why they haven't been updating it, or maybe since kids still enjoy it why bother changing it? But I agree that repeat visits by adults may be disappointing.
Unless I missed something in the article, it seems like his lego pieces were flat (2D) and he's not using the 3D capabilities of legos. There's other brands of building blocks he could use, but what would be really cool is to see him switch to Jelly Belly* beans- do a Google image search on Jelly Belly art, you'll be amazed.
(*I don't work for Jelly Belly, and I've not been paid by them, except for free samples from their factory tour**.)
(**Go on their factory tour if you get a chance. There's free samples!)
Does this ruling encourage those U.S. citizens who would align themselves with terrorists to stay in the country? Will they now want to do their 'training' here instead of abroad? It seems like a list of people traveling to terrorist supporting countries would be an easy first filter for the FBI/CIA/whatever to find these people, and they may have inadvertently reduced that capability.
There's a need for an app or device that protects all of the 'things' that the typical residence has, or will soon have, from malicious activity, or at least detects when they've been compromised. This Protector of 'Things' (POT) could report to you as soon as it detects any such activity.
With this system in place, you could get a text or e-mail stating that the POT is calling the iKettle hacked.
“The recent ambushes and assassinations of our law enforcement officers simply because they wear a blue uniform, that demands action.
Apparently cracking down on the subset of police officers who cause these sentiments, through their abuse of the public, is not one of the actions demanded? The 'solution' put forward by Dancer isn't even up to the point of treating the problem symptomatically. This is more like excusing and even encouraging bad behavior.
The current approach to criminal prosecutions premised on evidentiary requirements -- “finding evidence of a crime” -- places significant burdens on law enforcement. On the other side of the ledger, we do not perceive any real benefit to our citizenry by the evidence of an actual crime requirement in such cases -- no discernible advancement of their liberty or privacy interests.
After all, citizens would just be inconvenienced by a lengthy trial, guilty or not, surely they would prefer to avoid that and just be quickly whisked off to a nice corporate prison.
