Britain wanting to outlaw KNIVES? Man Guilty of Killing Harry Potter Actor
Topic: Crime 6:38 am EST, Mar  5, 2009

What struck me as really strange is how a lot of this article talks about Britain's KNIFE PROBLEM ?? (Could it be people killing people and not guns?)

"A habitually violent young man was convicted Wednesday of the murder of teenage actor Rob Knox, who had starred in the latest "Harry Potter" film....

.... Knife crime in Britain is a political hot topic due to a spate of recent killings of mainly young people in major cities. UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged tougher sentences for those caught carrying knives. He told the Daily Telegraph last month: "By carrying a knife you are not only endangering the lives of others, but you are more likely to be killed, or end up in jail.

"We need to change the way young people think about knives, we need families and communities working together ... to get this message across and help stamp out knife crime and get weapons off our streets."

Riots break out in Augusta Georgia after 23 year old shot multiple times
Topic: Crime 4:38 am EST, Dec 20, 2008

"The shooting caused chaos throughout the housing project. Multiple fires were set in trash dumpsters, angry neighbors threw rocks and bottles at media and officers the night of the shooting."

Another article here:

"Richmond County Sheriffs shot and killed 23 year old Justin Elmore on Monday in the Cherry Tree Crossing Housing Projects. The Cops, claiming that Justin had stolen the SUV, surrounded him and opened fire. Bullets flew everywhere. Local apartments had windows shot out and a little boy was almost shot in the Head. On Tuesday, the community held a vigil in response to the shooting. After an occupying force of 90 police descended on the neighborhood the people fought back. Locals threw rocks and bottles at both the Police and the Corporate Media. People also set fires to dumpsters and at least one car. Corporate media reports at least 30 shots had been fired during the riot."

WOW - and I've not heard crap about it here on the news!

Bail Out Proposal 9-29 for discussion
Topic: Crime 5:48 am EDT, Sep 29, 2008

I read the stupid 110 p proposed law. I am far from a financial analyst. I am just an everyday citizen trying to make heads or tails of this monster.

I figure hardly anyone has time to read this stuff. Well, I fell down a hill and hurt my hurt ankle for the 40th time and I'm flat on my back and doped up for a while, so here is my informal, jotted, best attempt at understanding it, and some of my thoughts while reading it.

1st paragraph - what are the other purposes? lol wtf

pg 5 excludes any central bank owned by a foreign country....good; funds definition is weird, have to skip ahead to find out what it is. :(

Don't like this - any financial instrument that the secretary after consultation with the fed, determines a need for, after transmittal to congress. Says not a thing about congressional approval - only transmittal.

by page 7 it is already looking like a bureaucratic nightmare.

pg 8 omg too much authority is being given - treasury gets executive authority

Is it possible this monster will be able to make or break anyone they want?

pg 13 interesting - all financial institutions can discrimination of SIZE (ok, ??? I thought the problem was only the too big to fail.) Looking a lot like socialism here....

pg 15 Financial stability oversight board
They can only review and make recommendations - they can't directly censor it seems - problems they find have to go to a special inspector GENERAL for ASSETS RELIEF PROGRAM or the attorney general.
(Everyone is pretty much appointed by the executive branch.)

They will meet every month. They report to the congressional panel 2x a year.

Then THIS oversight board is going to terminate. I'm not clear on when? Looks quick? pg 17 bottom

pg 19, pretty much says the treasurer will bring congress a detailed invoice and the bill and
"a description of the vehicles established to exercise this authority"
They need to make a report 1 week after they spend every 50 billion bucks

THE Secretary manages purchased assets.
pg 22 Ok, how much further can we get from the constitution?

Money from revenues goes into treasury to go towards the public debt.

(I'm reading this as, we are broke and we need to make money, so high risk it is...) ????????? Is our only option a high risk gamble?

At this point, since the sec of treasury will be buying and selling revenues with the tax payers money, I am kinda wondering how much access he will have to intelligence data.

And this authority thing is bugging me. I don't understand it. if someone leaves their home, and the fed has the mortgage, to what length can they go to get that money owed? IE, will that person ever get a tax refund again, ever? You cannot go bankrupt against federally held loans as it is.

p. 22
sec. may waive provisions of the federal acquisition reg... [ Read More (0.5k in body) ]

Mentally ill man tasered twice in court
Topic: Crime 10:14 pm EDT, Sep  1, 2008

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Broward County deputies shocked a mentally ill inmate with Tasers in court after the man asked deputies for a few minutes to catch his breath before he was led from the courtroom.

He was handcuffed and shackled at the time.

23 year old dies after being tasered; His mother not allowed to do CPR
Topic: Crime 10:48 pm EDT, Aug 31, 2008

"Harlan began to comply but refused to remove his arms from under his body so officers could finish handcuffing him, Cmdr. Kevin Palmatory of the Moberly Police said. A Taser was deployed again, at which point Harlan complied and officers handcuffed him. The second deployment was very brief, perhaps between half a second and a second long deployment, Palmatory said.

Shortly after he was handcuffed, Harlan stopped breathing. Before Randolph County Ambulance District personnel arrived, officers performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. When paramedics reached the scene, they began treating Harlan. He was then taken to Moberly Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at around 2:10 a.m. Thursday."

This conflicts with witness reports, in which he was seen to be in trouble, and the police refused to let his mother, a witness, assist her son. Her son, according to her, died in the gutter while the policemen searched the car, later noticing ...he was dead.

There's 2 or 3 versions of this story, but they all agree, there was a drunk 23 year old, breaking the law, and he was stopped and arrested, tasered twice...and died.

Florida School Security Officer Tasers 11-Year-Old Girl
Topic: Crime 5:16 am EDT, Mar 29, 2008

Another story reports that the girl weighs 90 pounds and has a learning disability and possible mental disorder.
The incident began when teachers at the Moss Elemenary School in Orange County confronted an 11-year-old girl for allegedly attempting to push another student into ongoing traffic outside the campus, reported.

Authorities say the young female ignored the teacher and walked inside the homeroom, where she was again approached by teachers over her behavior. The student responded by thowing a desk and chair and attempting to spit on the instructor, according to

Donna Hudepohl, a school resource officer called to remove the troubled girl from the classroom, was allegedly pushed and punched in the face during a struggle to restrain her.

Hudepohl responded by tasering the girl.

The student was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, disrupting a school function as well as resisting with violence and is being held at the juvenile detention center.

Hudepohl was treated for a possible broken nose.

Officer removed from K-9 unit after police dog dies in car
Topic: Crime 5:42 am EST, Dec 21, 2007

This is bullcrap. He didn't lose his actual position, any rank, or any pay. His fine? $256.25 Cheaper than my last vet bill.

"ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) -- A police officer whose police dog died of heat stroke after being left in a patrol car has been charged with violating the city's cruelty to animals ordinance and removed from the K-9 unit.

Lt. Curtis Endicott also paid a $256.25 fine Thursday in municipal court, Acworth Police spokesman Capt. Wayne Dennard said."

Witch fleeing Halifax after friends attacked, family swarmed
Topic: Crime 2:52 am EDT, Oct  1, 2007

There are a few other stories that have come out about this, but the details are not what they should be, and no justice has been served in this case as of yet.

It is my understanding that there were multiple attacks - multiple acts of intimidation by neighbors (of mixed race) ...some of the attackers started saying that the family was white supremacists, which is not true (and irrelevant as a justification for such violence anyway) - they are of mixed ethnic heritage themselves - in order to further marginalize them.
This is in Canada.

"For weeks, Shauna Cook, 37, says she's been targeted in her Halifax home because she is a hedge-witch natural healer.

Now, two of her pagan friends have been attacked, with one stabbed in the back and another struck in the head with a rock.

Shortly after midnight on Saturday, an 18-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy were leaving Cook's house to catch the bus when they were approached by four male teenagers, who asked the pair where they were going.

After saying they were going home, the boy was attacked.

Two more people jumped into the fight, making it six attackers in all.

The young woman ran back to Cook's house and tried to phone police.

While on the phone, one of the attackers threw a rock through a window and hit her in the forehead.

Meanwhile, the 17-year old boy was being beaten and stabbed in the back before he made it back to the house himself.

The attackers then fled.

The attack came weeks after Cook's family was swarmed by bat-wielding assailants.

Cook says she has no doubt her friends were attacked partly because she is a hedge-witch. She explains her religion as a more traditional form of wicca."
