routinely ignore Constitutional protections these days, and the federal appeals let them get away with it since they do the same thing. No one should depend on Constitutional protection these days. This becomes more true as politicians and businesses bribe the courts (all the way to and including SCOTUS) to get the results they want.
is nothing but a bank that is unregulated, and is not responsible to any overseeing organization. All legit banks have to comply with many laws, Paypal ignores them all. I would never have a Paypal account.
this might just be a ploy by the government to get the hackers to work for the government, then arrest them on whatever grounds they can think of. work for the NSA? about like working for the Nazi Party in the 1930s.
aren't going to do a thing; from their point of view no laws have been broken.
The banks firmly believe they do not have to pay attention to doing anything right or even legal. They know that as corporate entities they can't be thrown into jail. Besides, the banks would much rather pay $ 50K to fight it in court rather than actually pay the woman.'
Besides, the banks have the money to bribe the courts and cops and the victims do not.
whether the FBI, NSA, or any of the othrs, believe they are not bound by such silly things as laws or constitutional protections. They fully believe that anything they feel they want to do it's perfectly all right to do so.
of the U.S. government completely ignore conflict-of-interest rules. Congress ignores it, the SCOTUS ignores it, the FCC ignores it. Nowdays they talk about "conflict-of-interest" instead of plain old bribery.
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.
