Judge Rules Home Raid over Tea Counts as Probable Cause

SWAT gunpoint // “This is not what justice in the United States is supposed to be.” – Addie Harte Back in March of 2014, Mark Horne posted about how the Harte family was terrorized by police in a raid. The raid was based on the husband buying material at a hydroponics store, and the discovery of used wet tea leaves in the family garbage. The hydroponics equipment was perfectly legal and was purchased for a father-son science project. The tea was "field tested," which is notorious for false positives.

Baby Snatched from Mom for Single Medical Marijuana Offense

sanford Because foster care is so much better for the baby than a mother who tried to relieve her pain with medical marijuana tea. A first offense for using marijuana is typically very light. What are we to make of a woman punished by losing her baby? Even the child protection bureaucrats thought the judge was too severe. Cleveland.com reports, “Mom's use of marijuana tea leads to magistrate ordering removal of newborn, contrary to advice of county workers.”  Hollie Sanford's decision to use a marijuana-based Read more [...] Continue reading →

Air Pirates Rob a Passenger of $30k

DEALogo How did these air pirates evade law enforcement? They didn’t. They were law enforcement. According to the Washington Times, a man was robbed of over thirty thousand dollars in the L.A. Airport for traveling from Chicago with a small backpack over his shoulder. In April of this year, two Drug Enforcement Administration task force members stopped a man named Issa Serieh at Los Angeles International Airport, asked him some questions, and seized $30,750 in cash off of him. They sent him on his Read more [...] Continue reading →

obamaThrone U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations on Wednesday that the Department of Justice would be working with several major metropolitan police forces, starting with New York, to create a globe-girdling police force targeting "violent extremism." Yee-haw. It's on like Donkey Kong. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio made it clear that his city has joined 25 other cities worldwide because the global police force will target "intolerance." "The Strong Cities network will Read more [...] Continue reading →

DEA Agents Not Prosecuted and Keep Jobs

DEALogo DEA agents who were found to have broken the drug laws they were supposed to enforce were allowed to keep their jobs. What kind of people do our Federal overlords want to use as employees who will be best at doing the jobs they want these employees to perform? When one reads about the staggeringly low standards for behavior, you don’t know if that means they don’t really care about the moral character of these people… or if hiring and retaining moral degenerates is actually a government Read more [...] Continue reading →

Does the U.S. Have Sovereignty over Southwest Border Regions

arrested cartel A Breitbart.com story on Ben Carson reports claims that the southwest border areas are effectively without government as cartels roam free. When you first hear about the ISIS territory inside of Iraq and Syria, it seems completely foreign to anything Americans have known. How could criminals ever set up their own “state” within the borders of sovereign countries? But this story at Breitbart.com makes me wonder: “Exclusive — AZ Sheriff Takes Dr. Ben Carson on Helicopter Tour of Cartel Read more [...] Continue reading →

Drug Dogs Allow Cops to Search Almost Anyone They Want

k-9 Courts refuse to reconsider drug dogs, allowing cops to fabricate probable cause. What makes this all so much more insidious is that the police are not necessarily trying to be corrupt and illegal. They bring in the drug dog because they have a hunch and have the right to use the dog. And the dog could, in theory, sniff out drugs or not. But dogs like to please their masters and if the police officer gives the dog any hints in his body language, then the dog will usually react. This gives the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Cops: Our Right to Privacy Violated because We Failed to Disable Cameras before Breaking the Law

marla james raid Police are claiming that footage of them using marijuana is a violation of their right to privacy. Back in June Mark wrote about a raid of a marijuana dispensary. The first thing the police did after clearing out everyone else is disconnect all the security cameras. But they missed a couple. The next thing that happened is that they appeared to be eating food they found on the site. The dispensary sold marijuana edibles. It appeared that the police were getting high on the substances that were Read more [...] Continue reading →

Politicians Pretend Airlines Can’t Protect Customers from Second-Hand Vaping

vaping Don’t businesses already have an incentive to keep customers from being inconvenienced or harmed by vaping? As you probably already know, vaping is the new term for using “electronic cigarettes” which allow you to inhale nicotine without smoking tobacco. I’ve heard that nicotine is an intelligence booster and have wondered about experimenting with it. But even if I found it helped, I’m not sure I would want to feel dependent on the expense. Plus, I’m not certain that vaping is safe Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rethinking the Prison-Industrial Complex

prison bars hands While some Democrats are advocating prison camps, others are pointing out the prison-industrial complex is claiming too many Americans. Some conservatives think that drug laws are necessary and others have a more “libertarian” approach. But there is no way to deny that some of the penalties imposed have been insane. Weirdly, at the same time that a prominent Democrat is advocating “segregation” in camps for what amounts to pre-crime, many Democrats and Republicans are reconsidering the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Cops Made Money Laundering Money for Drug Cartels

police corrupt Bal Harbour Police Department and the Glades County Sheriff’s Office made $2.4 million by laundering money and charging three percent. Remember all the nice cars and boats that the police had for undercover work in that old TV show, Miami Vice? We may now have a clue how a police department could have enough funds to afford such lavish toys. Nick Sibilla of the Institute for Justice writes at Forbes.com, “ Posing as money launderers, police in Bal Harbour and Glades County, Fla. laundered Read more [...] Continue reading →
