It is not longer government by the people or for the people. If it ever was.
Washington is filled with corrupt self-dealing swindlers who line their pockets with taxpayer funds either directly or indirectly (from lobbyists who then get taxpayer-funded programs handed their way).
Each year they get more brazen, more blatent in their thuggery and their evisceration of our rights, and in their theft.
It's only a matter of time before the sheeple who bleat "Baahhh (D)" or "Bahhh (R)" wake up to the fact that whatever letter you claim as your "party", the real party is in DC and you're not invited.
A month ago it was made clear to you that this is not about the show; it's about the man.
A month ago it was made clear to you that this is not about me; it's about the man.
Please take your multiple personalities and go get help. Continuing to argue past the point of exhaustion will only make you tired; it won't change the fact that this is about Walter O'Brien the fraud, not the show, and not me.
Best of luck with better meds, and have a great weekend.
If anything I said confuses you, as I'm sure it does, just read the post at the very end of the page.
Regulations are sometimes couched as being required for safety, and the inevitable tradeoff between what you can't do and someone else's safety trotted out center stage.
Then sometimes it's just the government exercising more control because it can. This is an example of the latter -- Colombia has effectively made flying drones a violation of several civil regulations. That means if you upset someone you will get fined and the government will be enriched.
No matter how corrupt or inept our government is, I'm happy that the US FAA takes a more laissez faire approach until something becomes an exigent danger. Their process, which includes NPRMs, hearings, etc. is more reasoned than the European or South American or Colombian methods.
No. College campuses are not made up of the systems and processes to properly evaluate a legal claim, investigate it, and then lead to a conclusion.
That is why most of them will hand these things off to a law enforcement agency to do a proper (legal) investigation and follow it up. A LACK of a charge and a LACK of a conviction is not a failure of the process.
Here's an article with statistics about 80% of the claims being false: blog.simplejustice.us/2015/09/11/a-round-of-applause-for-congressman-jared-polis/
The assumption that a "student is ignored" is a false one. There's nothing in any primary source indicating the student was ignored. There were no criminal convictions in this matter. Anything else is pure speculation... and a prejudging of the other victim -- the alleged sexual assaulter.
The other assumption that someone "barely 3 months out of high school" gets to have magic-bullet rights is ludicrous. Take another look at the 14th Amendment. If you're a US Citizen you have EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. There's no magic bullet for being "3 months out of high school." Maturity is expected and legally granted at 18 years.
The article doesn't fail on cyanide sales. The article correctly points out that the LAWSUIT FAILS by conflating the cyanide sale with the suicidal teen with the sexual assault. The lawsuit is defective because the reason for the suicide is unproven BUT arguendo is irrelevant to the matter of the purchase of the cyanide.
This case is about a mother hurt so badly because she wasn't available to her suicidal daughter, that she wants to sue everybody.
I'm sorry her daughter felt she had nobody to turn to. Likely if her mommy had been available... there would be no lawsuit today.
However, from a legal point of view...
I know it's tough for people outside the United States to understand but we here have laws. Part of those laws is that everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
When we say "we don't blame the victim" this is true of those who report alleged assault as well as the person they report about.
In this case there is no conviction. That means NOBODY is guilty of sexually assaulting her.
That sexual assault thing is a red herring. This case is about mommy suing Amazon because butthurt.
It is NOT germane to Amazon being named in the lawsuit as to WHY the girl was allegedly suicidal. The whole "sexual assault" thing and suing the University is just an attempt to get more bites at the insurance-coverage umbrella-policy cash apple.
Simplifying, these are two unrelated cases thrown into one: 1. Nobody was found guilty of sexual assault but mommy thinks university should have moved the alleged perpetrator to a different dorm (or killed him?). Scott Greenfield writes about this horrid non-justice phenomenon at blog.simplejustice.us. Basically universities are creating extrajudicial proceedings lacking justice, fairness, protection of rights, and allow the accused to be vilified while the accuser has free reign without regard to law or evidence.
But this did not happen here. Nobody was found guilty of sexual assault. Any discussion of sexual assault is an attack against the victim of these accusations.
2. An adult went on Amazon.com and purchased a product. Amazon is not responsible that the adult later used that product to kill herself. The depressed teen could have bought a Ghost 400 crossbow, a sharp kitchen knife, or Tide With Bleach and Windex and made mustard gas. The only responsible person for her death is... the teen.
If her mother would like to find someone living to point the finger at... she should look in the mirror. Obviously this poor teenager felt she was assaulted (but the law did not agree with her conclusion) and she felt she had nobody to turn to (I guess Mommy wasn't so ever reachable)... and that she couldn't live with the guilt or shame and so she spent DAYS buying a product, waiting for it to be delivered, getting it, and using it.
There's suicide through depression. That happens instantly. There's suicide through PLANNED death. That's what this teenager did.
Mommy should get help. She has no case against any of the parties... and this won't make her feel better for how badly she failed her daughter.
I'm sorry an eighteen year old girl felt everything was so hopeless and she bought cyanide and killed herself.
The only person responsible for that is the girl. Not Amazon. Not the university. Not some guy that was not found to have assaulted her.
