Pam Guenther was enjoying a Saturday morning ride on the back of her husband's motorcycle in Ocala, Fla., when a cop driving in the other direction abruptly turned around and pulled them to the side of the road.
"I knew we weren't speeding," Guenther told Asylum. "So my first question was why is he pulling us over? [The officer] just pointed to my husband and said, 'He's wearing a mask, and it's illegal to cover your face when riding a motorcycle.'"Read more »

The Transportation Security Administration, under scrutiny after last month’s bombing attempt, has on its Web site a “mythbuster” that tries to reassure the public.
Myth: The No-Fly list includes an 8-year-old boy.
Buster: No 8-year-old is on a T.S.A. watch list.
“Meet Mikey Hicks,” said Najlah Feanny Hicks, introducing her 8-year-old son, a New Jersey Cub Scout and frequent traveler who has seldom boarded a plane without a hassle because he shares the name of a suspicious person. “It’s not a myth.”Read more »

Auburn, NY -- Three days before Christmas, Auburn Police Chief Gary Giannotta laid down the law for his command staff. At the closed meeting Dec. 22 in the department basement, Giannotta gave this ultimatum: Tell your patrol officers to write more vehicle and traffic tickets — at least one each per shift — or there will be repercussions for those who don’t.Read more »
A 7-foot tall marijuana plant grew in plain sight on a busy street all summer long until police finally figured it out and destroyed it.
"'I don't know if somebody was watering this thing every day or what was going on, but it was a nice-looking marijuana plant,' [the Orem cop] says.
"He doesn't think it got to be 7 feet tall because people were intentionally turning a blind eye to the pot in their midst."Read more »

A bill to legalize marijuana in California was approved by a key committee of the Assembly, in spite of opposition from law enforcement.
Assemblyman Danny Gilmore, a former CHP commander, said the estimated $1.3 billion in tax revenue is not worth the grief that will be caused by legalization.

To Grant Government More Power in the Hopes that it Will Defend Human Life is Foolish.
Health care? Abortion? War? The State, as an institution, is not pro-life in any way. It's a mistake to allow it more power in the hopes that it will defend life. A look at a few points within the U.S. Federal State will help bring this fact more clearly to home.
This article looks at 2 things:
1 - the government itself has stated that it has no responsibility to defend you
2 - politicians (even "pro-life" ones) do not have convictions, they only have platforms.
Federal health care reform will require most Northern New Yorkers — but not all, it turns out — to carry health insurance or risk a fine.
