Sure... crush my hopes... which were admittedly completely unjustified. In other news, a rather-delayed letter from my former healthcare provider informs me that an unknown hacker accessed the parts of their system that contain "personal information, like name, address, date of birth, social security number, medical record number, Medicare or health plan ID number, and some medical information (e.g. medical condition, medications, procedures, and test results)." So, nothing important.
The City of El Segundo is located in Southwest Los Angeles County and home to numerous Aerospace businesses such as Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Aerospace Corp and the Los Angeles Air Force Base. Our tactical team is in dire need of a armored vehicle for operational use.
Raytheon is pretty scary. But I'm not sure an armored vehicle would be much use against them.
To put it in another context, the officers' claim of misrepresentation by videotape is roughly equivalent to telling your boss when he's firing you for showing up for work drunk that he's "misrepresenting" the situation by "editing" down your work history to the day you showed up drunk for work. What about all the days you showed up sober?
Not to abuse the analogy, but I'm guessing there aren't too many days where these cops showed up sober.
It must be maddeningly frustrating to be an inspector general. We hear of these various agency scandals, screwups, and abuses, and woven through almost every story is "inspector general issued numerous reports over many years detailing serious problems and urging immediate action to correct them..." Yet no one seems to listen to them.
The son of Bangor Daily News cartoonist George Danby said LePage made the remark after he asked what the governor thought of his father's cartoons Wednesday during an event at Dirigo Boys State, a youth leadership program.
But just in case it isn't... Amnesty International doesn't just sit on evidence of human rights violations. It investigates, it reports, and it makes evidence publicly available when it is possible to do so without putting people at greater risk. That is why (aside from the general overall violation of privacy) this spying is so disturbing and so serious: It endangers the lives of people who report human rights abuses.
