Texas Legislators Caught Violating Voting Rules on Camera

http://www.youtube.com

One of the better news agencies in Austin has some choice footage showing state legislators casting votes in the place of colleagues who might not even be in the building. Hypocritically, this happened even as the state legislature itself passed laws criminalizing regular folks who vote on behalf another person in general and primary elections. The best part?

Massachusetts hands out 900 illegal tickets, refuses to issue refunds

http://boston.cbslocal.com

Massachusetts department of transportation handed out about 900 speeding tickets on a newly created stretch of road. The issue is that they did not follow their own laws around setting speed limits and enforcing them.

the illegality is due to the the state not performing an engineering study to determine the maximum safe speed for the stretch of road.

Another way to kill US farmers: Seize bank accounts on phony charges

http://foodfreedomgroup.com

when the Sowers earned over $10,000 in February, and learned they’d have to fill out paperwork at the bank for such large deposits, they simply rolled the deposits over to keep them below that amount, rather than waste time on bureaucratic red tape.
Structuring explains Overlawyered.com, is the federal criminal offense of splitting up bank deposits so as to keep them under a threshold such as $10,000 above which banks have to report transactions to the government.

This means that one cop will give another a pass whenever their power of discretion allows it (and possibly when is does not). Also, if you are familiar with the generic cop mindset, the world is generally divided into 2 groups- cops and their families, and everyone else.

5 Real Judges Who Put the Most Evil Supervillain to Shame

http://www.cracked.com

It's one thing for a judge to be corrupt -- we sort of expect that to happen in all public jobs, because we watch the news. It's quite another for judges to be hilarious lunatics, criminally lazy schemers or just impossibly evil. Yet it happens, and more often than you'd think.

http://losangeles.cbslocal.com

FULLERTON (CBS) — An Orange County Superior Court judge was removed from office Wednesday by a state oversight panel for helping friends and relatives get out of traffic tickets for minimal costs. In most of the cases, Stanford arranged to have most fees and fines waived for relatives and friends who received tickets, except for a $51 traffic school fee, in exchange for guilty pleas and referral to traffic school, according to the commission’s complaint. During a disciplinary hearing in July of last year, Stanford’s attorney, Paul S.

http://dbphoenixcriminallawyer.com

Out of all of the cities with Occupy movements, the cost per arrest in Phoenix was the highest - taxpayers spent $4,430 per. If this math is correct, each officer got around $8,000 in overtime for 72 hours of police work to protect the city from just 40 protestors. Who does this benefit? Not Phoenicians.

Calif. Lawmaker Blames Brain Tumor for Shoplifting; now on Probation

http://www.washingtonpost.com

Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi was arrested at a Neiman Marcus store after she walked out the doors with unpaid merchandise, and accused of stealing nearly $2,500 worth of clothing. The judge reduced a theft charge against her from a felony to a misdemeanor at a prosecutor’s request. (Her husband is a judge, too.) Her attorney said she was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that contributed to the shoplifting incident.
"It's no longer affecting... her judgment", but her condition "can lead to some absentmindedness." Hayashi has no plans to resign from office.

Will Ron Paul get the JFK treatment?

Will Ron Paul get the JFK treatment if his presidential bid reaches the point where it appears he may get the nomination, or "heaven forbid", the presidency?

Consider the enormous amount of money at stake in federal programs, especially the warfare / welfare bureaucracies.

Organizations tend to be like cornered animals- they will do whatever they have to when they feel their lives are threatened. And Government is the largest organization, with the most capacity for violence, both overt and covert.

http://www.theagitator.com

Michael Bowers has been one one of the heroes to shed light on the bite mark matching fraud. He has personally exposed a number of quacks, and contributed to the National Academy of Sciences report that found no scientific basis for the idea that bite marks on human skin can be definitively matched to one person, to the exclusion of everyone else. Now, two bite mark specialists whom Bowers has criticized are suing him for stating at a conference that they contributed to a wrongful conviction.
