There is now certainly enough evidence available to show that the "law enforcement officers" on the scene of the Dorner Siege are likely guilty of murder.
Contrary to popular belief, their badges are not magical and they do not grant the individuals wearing them extra rights. Certainly not the right to burn someone alive.Read more »
I think that this story speaks for itself, but this is another story highlighting an attack against free speech at Universities. I recently graduated from Carleton University and I wish I could say that these kind of events were rare. This piece has many priceless quotes including “Only someone who had gone to university could write something so utterly stupid,” referring to the public explanation given by the individual who tore down the free speech wall.
