The LAPD has opened fire on random innocents and purposefully set a cabin on fire killing an unknown occupant. These acts combined with their complete disregard for Public Safety or Rule of Law more than qualifies them as a Terrorist Organization, and they should be officially recognized and classified as suchRead more »
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 »

Coroner David Crerar issued a final report Tuesday into the death of 31-year-old Natasha Harris, concluding that the mother of eight died from a heart attack. He said the large amount of Coca-Cola she drank likely led to metabolic imbalances that gave rise to her heart problems, adding that Coke was likely a "substantial factor" in her death. A New Zealand food industry association on Wednesday rejected a coroner's call to add health warnings to soft-drink labels.Read more »

Under-30 voters are “the only age group in which a majority said the government should do more to fix problems,” the nonpartisan Pew Research Center reported in November. In a Pew survey a year earlier, more than 8 in 10 said they believed that Social Security and Medicare had been good for the country, and they were especially supportive of seeing the programs overhauled so they would be intact when they retire. (Young people were also more open than their elders to privatizing the programs.)Read more »

Proof Of A U.S. Police State
America has fast descended into a police state. The trouble is that we want to believe in the rule of law and the system that alleges to support and enforce it. But when reality collides with illusion, it is too late. No matter how bad things seem, we always think that times will get better and that government will do the right thing.Read more »
L.A. Residents Plead With LAPD On Signs, Shirts: ‘Don’t Shoot, I’m Not Chris Dorner’
In response to the LAPD shooting at least 3 innocent people in a manhunt for Chris Dorner, the fugitive ex-cop and alleged murderer they’re hunting with U.S. military spy drones, residents of Los Angeles have begun wearing shirts and placing signs on their vehicles that read, “Don’t shoot, I’m not Chris Dorner. Thank you.”Read more »
The TSA is a natural target for political demonstrations. Their invasive sexual molestation is unpopular with everyone, and their checkpoints come ready made with a captive audience. In 2010 Aaron Tobey was handcuffed and held for 90 minutes by the TSA at the Richmond Airport in Virginia after he stripped off his shirt to display the Fourth Amendment scrawled across his chest with a marker.
On Friday he won a civil rights lawsuit seeking $250,000 in damages against the TSA for being wrongfully detained on a disorderly conduct charge. And for that he is our Rebel of the Week.Read more »
Manny Pacquiao's chief adviser insisted Monday that the Filipino superstar's preference is for his next bout – a fifth fight against Juan Manuel Marquez – to take place away from Las Vegas, with the off-shore Chinese gambling resort of Macau emerging as the "favorite."Read more »
Naomi Wolf has, as usual, scared the crap out of me. This time in her recent article in the Guardian, “JSOC: Obama’s secret assassins.” What takes the form of a review of the film “Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield” doubles as some shocking analysis of this little known death squad known as the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), which to me sounds like IngSoc (You either get that or you don’t).Read more »
A southern Utah student has been removed from classes after administrators found her dyed hair color too distracting.
Rylee MacKay, a 15-year-old student at Hurricane Middle School in Hurricane, said she was sent to the office Wednesday after an administrator said her hair looked purple and pink in the sunlight.
Under Washington County School District policy, hair "should be within the spectrum of color that grows naturally," and administrators can decide whether a color is too distracting.
A 23-year-old man who was beaten by three Denver police officers after he questioned their authority to search the trunk of his car says the Justice Department has decided not to charge any of the officers with civil-rights violations stemming from the case. Alexander Landau tells The Denver Post that representatives of the department and the FBI told him Friday there was insufficient evidence to bring federal charges.Read more »
