    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: THE government hasn't been behaving as OUR government for decades.

    "To be fair, I hypothesize that our recent rash of rampage killers has to do with people seeing society falling apart and feel powerless to do anything about it (and in the case of Dylann Roof, blaming and going after his preferred scapegoat). This might be symptomatic of the kind of general discontent that fuels revolution."

    *BINGO*
    we have a winner ! ! !

    Re: Re: I think it's more complex than that.

    oh kee-rist on a crutch...
    i got an idea, EVERYONE must take nudies of themselves and post them on their mandatory farcebook page and then no one will have anything on anyone and everyone will be equally humiliated...
    there, will that *finally* settle this silly shit ? ? ?

    oh, and to the poster kindly re-defining sexual assault as viewing a nudie of someone, please take a long walk off a short pier, as we used to say...

    i am first in line when it comes to NOT wanting nude pix of myself for the world to point at, *tsk*tsk*, and -worst of all- make judgments on my pitiful meatbag of a body... BUT, is the world seeing my 'junk' *really* going to be so humiliating that i simply can't go on ? ? ?

    does EVERYTHING have to be so melodramatic and life-threatening ? ? ? we have such boring lives we have to gin up bullshit drama to make it seem 'exciting', and that our lives have some significance ? ? ?

    people really need more chores to do, rather than hang around on the inertnet tubes all day scouting for outrage eruptions...

    Re: Re:

    to anon cow at 312:

    au contraire, mon frere, these horrible exemplars are the best *BECAUSE* our fundamental (and as other posters point out, INHERENT) rights are given primacy over the appearance (or actual) 'guilt' of the perps...
    the least sympathetic, 'most guilty' perps make the best case law/precedent, *BECAUSE* any situation to follow which falls short of that, *now* is golden...
    makes it difficult for future persecutors to move the goalposts...
    besides, 'our' (sic) system *used* to be about 'better 9 guilty men go free, than one innocent man is tried and convicted unjustly'...
    now, we're *all* guilty of something: only a matter of if (when?) sauron turns his evil eye your way, and you are dead hobbit-meat...

    Re: Re: Re:

    well, that's the nub, isn't it ? there *is* (essentially) no 'fair arbitration'; it is a process for the benefit of korporate people, not real (you know, useless) people...

    given it is a system TOTALLY dominated by the korporations, 'arbitrators' are self-selected to be korporate suckups, otherwise they don't get called to 'arbitrate' next time...

    again, a theoretical 'fair' arbitration system may be possible, but not under the current regime dominated and controlled by korporations...

    Re: Re: The Constitution does not bestow rights

    how the declaration of independence and constitution are worded, are that we are imbued with ALL RIGHTS we freaking want, NOT explicitly the ones enumerated...

    there was a big debate among the founding old property-owning white men that IF we explicitly enumerated *SOME* of the rights we do have that we wanted to ensure were not traduced, that would 'imply' that we were limited to those rights: NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH...

    *however*, the crowd that wanted to list a number of bedrock rights explicitly eventually got a sop in the bill of rights... think of them as the bare minimum, with all other rights not stated...
    again, BOTH sides were VERY CLEAR that ALL OTHER RIGHTS were ours as well, just not specified because that would be an endless tail-chasing game...

    of *course* there is an inherent political 'statement'...

    ...might not have been the tagger's intention, know nothing about the guy/gal/droid; but it is almost certainly a 'political' statement in regards to they hit up a highly visible target sponsored by a company obsessed with and perpetrating a superficial, looks-ist kultur, and the spokesdroid being a celebutard manufactured by the machine to fill the needs of disposable, is only icing on the cake of in-your-face 'desecration'...
    (is korporate puffery such protected fee speech that it is a desecration to deface it ? ...to refute it ? ...to mock it ? ? ? )
    the whole '...with a drone' bullshit is the new '...on the internet' escape-from-rational-thinking clause...

    one reason our unknown pro will never reveal himself (almost certainly a male of the species): then *his* (his mummy's or daddy's ?) work will be put under the microscope, and we'll see how that plays out...
    *as if* *ANYONE* is 'creating' everything new from whole cloth, and lives in total isolation from any/all other cultural musical influences...
    please, IF you want your 'art' to be 100% uncopyable, just keep it in your file cabinet and it will be pristine FOR-EVAH ! ! !
    thanks in advance...

    whoa, whoa, whoa...

    i do not have time to follow 100% of techdirtia's articles, but i have certainly read about all the law agencies resisting body cams and giving bogus excuses, but didn't know someplace had actually implemented a 'redaction' policy (whatever that entails)...
    and, further, not understanding the praise for a former activist joining the dark side to help obscure the dark side's evil deeds in said redaction ? ? ?
    i got an 'A' and a 'Z', but i missed all the steps in between to explain how we got there...
    are we praising professional executioners, now ?
    do we admire the efficient concentration kamp guards, now ?
    'yes, its censorship, but its a -you know- double-plus *good* censorship; thank dog we have efficient censors on our side !! '
    *snicker*
    is this another shadow of democracy we thank Empire for allowing us to have, like free speech pens ? ? ?
    *snort*

    Empire does not hear the baleful bleatings of the sheeple...
    there were *record* numbers of protests -both worldwide and domestically- *before* the iraq war, and it mattered not one whit to Empire...
    the occupy movementette, was crushed with extra-legal -and quite konspiratorial- means with hardly a *bahhh* from the sheeple...
    (of course, *part* of that is the near-absolute control of the media, and who don't report on stories embarrassing to Empire...)
    frei sprech zones, sekret executive Orders, extra-judicial executions, bribery legalized, morality compromised, and mammon our highest god, our only aspiration...
    but it is not the chains of Empire which restrain us, but the chains we imagine ourselves to be bound by...

    who will be first to step into the chasm ?
    ...and who will follow ? ? ?

    Re:

    someone intervenes below, but all you have to do is see chinatown, and that will give an overview of a controversial 'solution' to LA's water problems...

    making it *other* people's water problem, which played out in operatic style in real life, not just the movie... i think pbs or somebody had a teevee show on it recently, pretty wild stuff that would be unbelievable as fiction...

    needless to say, *who* is giving *whose* water to *whom* is mostly decided by state power in service to big bidness interests, not decided by equity...

    it hardly seems unreasonable to demand a user-aimed taser mounted to every pc for, um, for crowd control...
    not unreasonable at all...

    Re:

    the same way they can get you for soliciting for underage sex when the officer on the other end of the chat room moniker 'sexykid' is a 48 year old police officer trolling for scalps...

    entrapment doesn't matter anymore...
    real crime rate is down so much, they have to make up thought crimes and fake crimes to jack up the people they protect and serve...

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:The evidence is that intellectual property is THEIR STUFF, not yours.

    1. thank you for pointing out the self-evident to anti-dirt, which is *always* a necessary predicate...

    2. *IF* 'creators' (read: korporations who own individual peoples' creative output) are so jealous and protective of their precious "IP", then let it stay locked up in their file cabinets... see how much 'benefit' they get from that... their precious "IP" will be 100% safe...

    3. *BUT* *IF* they want to release it to the world TO MAKE MONEY (which is their total motivation), then expect it will be copied/transformed... you can't have it both ways: skim off all the cream and have none of the sour milk...
    you literally profit from the public at large choosing your craptastic junk over *their* craptastic junk, but then go on to say the public -who MADE YOU- can't benefit in any further manner ? ? ?
    (which was *purportedly* the *other* -ignored- part of the copyright/patent 'deal' )

    the other poster nailed anti-dirt's posting style, i vacillate between him being a twue bewiever authoritarian, and a paid stooge of one stripe or another...
    *someone* has to be the paid shills that are known to exist...

    he said 'google' and 'customer support' in the same sentence...
    prima facie evidence of incipient insanity...

    do not try and bend the google. that's impossible. instead only try to realize the truth. there is no google. then you will see it is not the google that bends, it is yourself...

    their word means nothing...

    1. have ZERO doubt, were UK to 'streamline', 'improve' their snooping laws, nearly all the protections would be jettisoned, and nearly all the immoral ("illegal" means NOTHING when rights and laws are broken ALL THE TIME by gummint actors, with NO consequences) bits that give them unlimited surveillance with NO repercussions for abuse, would get in...

    2. DO.
    NOT.
    BELIEVE.
    THEM.

    *just like* i have ZERO faith in any bullshit oversight of various gummint institutions by various gummint institutions to uncover anything of consequence...

    nine one one is the new godwin, but here it goes: do ANY kampers realize that nearly ALL the PRE-APPROVED members on the original nine one one (purposefully limited) commission have called for re-opening that investigation (which wasn't an investigation) ? ? ?
    no ?
    huh, funny that: THE most important terrorist attack which was the crowning impetus for implementing this police state, and nearly all the commish's are saying they were lied to and handcuffed and absolutely believe there should be a thorough investigation re-opened...
    funny, you'd think that would be headline news...

    3. of course, this doesn't even begin to address the end run ALL these spooks have done in getting you guys to spy on our guys we can't 'legally' (whatever, means nothing) do; and our guys will spy on your guys you can't 'legally' do...
    wtf ? ? ?
    WHO lets their KIDS get away with sophistry like this: oh, noes, mommy, *I* didn't get the cookies out of the cookie jar, li'l timmy did, i just put him up to it, gave him the stepstool to get the cookie jar, and ate all the cookies, but *I* didn't do it...
    AND, they get away with horseshit like that ? ? ?
    not in my moral universe they don't...
