In NYC, an arbitrary stretch of road which previously allowed parking, was suddenly changed to no standing any time. After the change, within 25 minutes, parking enforcement arrived and began issuing $115 parking tickets. When confronted about the sudden rule change and the fact that people did not have time to move, none of them seemed to care.
Furthermore, the official response basically told the owners of those cars that if they didn't like the ticket then they can fight it in court.Read more »
A St. Petersburg, FL police officer was speeding 21 MPH over the limit, hit an old man in a wheelchair. He killed the man and was fired. Now, if anyone else did that, they'd be put in a cage. After a year off the job, he was given his job back WITH the year of back pay while he off! What a bunch of crap!

From a comment about this article: "Perhaps nothing is truly shocking anymore. But there should not be any more articles analyzing the assassination controversy without noting that the US government was caught red-handed in the 1970s engaging in political assassination in the United States, nor without noting that “terrorism” was directly organized by government agencies.
This is not “conspiracy theory.” This is historical fact."Read more »
If a person commits suicide, and they felt pushed to do so, does that make the person or persons that pushed them, or harassed them, an accomplice; and should they be held accountable as accomplices? Perhaps this is a topic that can be opened for discussion on the show? How many people have committed suicide due to similar circumstances, that the general public is not even aware of? Perhaps, their names can be added here, under "comments" so they can be remembered? Can people be bullied to death?Read more »
“Police officer perjury in court to justify illegal dope searches is commonplace. One of the dirty little not-so-secret secrets of the criminal justice system is undercover narcotics officers intentionally lying under oath. It is a perversion of the American justice system that strikes directly at the rule of law. Yet it is the routine way of doing business in courtrooms everywhere in America.”Read more »
They say fingerprint evidence doesn't lie and for the most part that's true. However government officials involved in the collection of evidence do horrible things.
In 1990 Shirley Kinge was convicted in an arson case where four people died. The investigator NY State Police Trooper, Robert M Lishansky was an 11 year veteran, considered one of their brightest and best investigators.
Lishansky was lifting prints from paper copies of fingerprint cards with standard lifting tape. Then claiming he lifted them at crime scenes.
Government sure knows how to efficiently spend money. West Virginia has spent $24 million on 1,164 Cisco model 3945 branch routers for their government offices (adding up to 1 high end enterprise level router per 13 government employees). Each router is able to handle hundreds (or even thousands) of simultaneous users depending on their bandwidth needs.Read more »

I don’t personally expect the sequestration to happen. If it does, I don’t expect it to last long. It’s all speculation at this point. But I’m going to take the unpopular (in Libertarian circles) stance of saying that it shouldn’t happen.Read more »
