Seller is promptly arrested and all their assets seized.
I would guess that small items like cameras would be sold to a police officer for a fraction of the actual resale value, and then they would sell it online and pocket the profits. The buyer who reported the pictures would then be arrested for possession, partly since now it's their word vs a police officer, and partly because they can.
They used a thermal imaging camera and thought they detected someone hiding in the attic.
So now having poor attic insulation is reasonable suspicion of harboring a fugitive?
Throughout the 20 1/2-hour ordeal, the children's pet rabbit scampered around the house.
Lucky it wasn't shot as an accomplice, for "charging menacingly toward an officer", or just as a case of mistaken identity. Some police do seem to like shooting pets.
The officers also tore apart the inside of the home in their futile search.
This is the part that really seem actionable. If they suspected he was in the attic, why would they need to touch anything clearly not in the attic? It's as if they were acting like vindictive, immature, poorly trained idiots instead of police officers.
and even the family’s Christmas tree was ripped through a window and smashed to bits.
Rather than trying to find outrageous and extreme cases, why not look at the system as a whole?
Maybe because those cases show where the system is most broken, most ripe for abuse, and most in need of repair?
This is exactly the type of situation that should be focused on, with the brightest spotlight possible. Ignoring actions like this is what will bring the system down, not highlighting the problems in the system. And while I agree that this case is outrageous, having seen several similar stories in the past unfortunately I have trouble believing that this qualifies as extreme.
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.
