I wrote a scathing email to Mike Pompeo about his failure to support the Amash amendment and he replied with the straight down the line NSA bullshit talking points most of which had already been debunked. This is a complete 180 for him. I guess my congressman wants my vote next election after all.
It is true that a very small minority of bad cops give the rest a bad name. Most cops play by the rules and at a moments notice would put their own lives at risk to protect others. However this guy obviously should never be given a badge and gun. Police departments use psychological screening that hopefully would keep this guy out. Good cops are often criticized even when they do everything right. A while back an incident in my city was entirely recorded on surveillance cameras where an officer pursued a robbery suspect that fired a shot at him. Instead of firing back he ordered him several times to put the gun down. It was only when the guy raised the gun again that the cop shot and killed him. Even with overwhelming evidence that this was a proper shoot you should have seen all the whining comments about why this cop shot the guy.
I am not big on downloading but a friend showed me a cammed movie he downloaded. When I commented how really bad the video and audio was he said that this was one of the better ones he had seen. I guess some people just HAVE to have the latest films while they are still in the theaters but if they just wait they can get it in BLU-ray either legally or not within a matter of weeks after the theater run.
Never said he did not have every reason to sue for an extreme violation of his rights. Emotionally I am sure he suffered but there was no real physical pain involved. If it happened to me I would not only expect a cash settlement but I would want the names of everyone involved published and fired or at least severely disciplined. 1.6 mil is still a bit much.
I just wonder how the dog alerting on the car seat justified them assuming he had something up his ass. Was he farting cocaine fumes into it? Dogs can be helpful in finding drugs but interpreting their actions can be sometimes be entirely subjective. Other times it is unmistakable. When I was in the Army they brought a drug dog into the barracks. A friend had a bag of pot hidden in his mattress cover. The dog went straight for it barking loudly and pulling on the mattress in his teeth.
Why was the X-ray and one probe not enough for these idiots? Wouldn't a warrant be required for even this much? Any judge would set some kind of limits. No way he would have allowed any further action after an X-ray was negative.
Is there some part of the story we are not hearing? Maybe this guy was a drug dealer and the cops were waiting to bust him. It just so happened he was not carrying this one time.
I'm 61 and recently got the camera up my butt and with the drugs they gave me I don't even remember it happening. My doctor sticks his finger in there every year during my physical. Not exactly enjoyable (guys of a different persuasion might think so) but not exactly painful either. What this guy suffered was embarrassment and inconvenience. That is not to say the officers should not be fired for being complete idiots and the doctors who helped them severely disciplined by their boards. How exactly did the dog alert? Did he just seem to spend a little extra time sniffing the seat or did he go crazy ripping it apart? Maybe he just said rutt row.
This guy deserves some compensation but 1.6 million from taxpayers is a bit much. Whatever is paid should come directly out of the pockets of everyone who participated.
For this reason at least some individuals involved in these attacks should face very serious charges from attempted manslaughter or attempted murder. If the victim dies it should be second degree murder. In commission of most felonies when someone dies everyone gets a murder rap right down to the getaway driver and the lookout. On The First 48 they often make suspects believe they are not in as much trouble if they didn't pull the trigger to get these idiots to admit they were there. The detectives watching the video of they interview high five each other when they get these admissions.
These vicious attacks are planned and carried out by groups of people. Everyone seen in the video that are obviously participating should be charged with conspiracy along with the attacker and the cameraman. Striking someone with sufficient force to knock them unconsciousness can result in brain damage or death. People this sociopathic that they would do this just for amusement deserve prison time.
It's not really a bad idea to pass a law very specific to the practice of these knockout videos. Is this guy so dense that he couldn't narrow it to specify that if it can be proved that someone conspired to commit an aggravated assault in any way, including the planning and recording of it they would both face the same charges? It seems to me that this would already be covered by existing laws.
This will work. I have never been a fan of wrestling but I have known a lot of guys that are. Back in the 80's I had a 10 foot dish and the local cable company did not offer any pay per view. 5 or 6 guys I worked with would pool their money for me order events and come over to my place to watch events. The cost was usually about $50 so this shows that wrestling fans are willing to pay. Figuring in inflation that would probably be like $100 today.
I am pretty much a novice and I was just wondering; I use Jdownloader and it shows up in Task Manager as Java(TM) Platform SE Binary (32 bit). I use Firefox with Ad Block and DoNotTrackMe and I have the Java add on turned off. Is Jdownloader risky to use? By the way, DoNotTrackMe says there 9 trackers at this site. Google+1, Facebook Connect, Google Analytics, Twitter Badge, Reinvigorate, Comscore Beacon, Quancast, ChartBeat and ShareThis. WTF?
I have read that because of the FBI shifting all their resources after 9/11 for several years child porn also flourished with thousands of "Lolita" and "preteen" sites going unchecked for years. It has probably been more Google's efforts to report these sites that most of that has been curbed than any efforts by the FBI. Using Windows Explorer which had no Ad Block in the early 2000's It was not unusual to get pop ups boldly advertizing these sites while clicking on sites that had absolutely nothing to do with any kind of pornography.
WOW! In my sophomore year of high school I bullshitted my way through a report in one weekend that we were given 6 weeks to write. I picked a subject that I knew the teacher would have little knowledge of. I faked all the references but named recognized publications. For my careful counterfeit I received a B. This was in the 60's long before you could copy past Wikipedia and reword it so automated programs that some teachers use won't catch it. A smart ass report like this would have been in the trash by the second paragraph.
