New World Order Recruits a Global Police Force

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 →

Boy with Muslim Name and Science Project Meets School Police State

racial_profiling The school police state puts a boy in handcuffs for a “hoax bomb” that the boy claimed was a clock because it was a clock. One of the things that bothers me about this story, is it may have been a CAIR sting operation. But the problem is that, if so, no one should have grabbed at the “bait.” This boy should never have been put in handcuffs. I don’t object to the school authorities being cautious (even though there shouldn’t be any school authorities; the entire public school Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rape Culture Hysteria: 13-Year-Old Boy Charged with Assault for Kissing 14-Year-Old Girl

no kissing Is this what is meant by "rape culture"—a young teen facing criminal charges because he kissed a girl on a dare? I don’t think thirteen-year-olds should be kissing teen girls against their will. Both the boy and the other students who encouraged him should be punished. I hate to sound old, but when I was a student, a teen might receive physical discipline for such an act. Now we are much more enlightened. We don’t lay a hand on students; we just bestow on them a permanent criminal record. WBFF Read more [...] Continue reading →

Good News: Fewer Police Being Killed

hoodie gunpoint Despite the hysteria you have seen in the news, there are actually fewer police being killed. I had seen the analysis elsewhere, but most recently Radley Balko wrote about the issue at the Washington Post. The first thing you might feel is confusion if you have heard reports of more police being killed. After declaring that 2015 “is shaping up to be the second safest year for police ever, after 2013,” Balko explains: Speaking of which, it’s important to note again here that 2013 was an Read more [...] Continue reading →

Parody Twitter Account User Gets Settlement for SWAT Raid

twitter-followme Peoria must pay out $125,000 because the mayor felt he had the right to use the police force against a parody Twitter account. Back in April of 2014, Mark Horne posted about how the police raided the home of a parody Twitter account that mocked the mayor. The mayor was the driving force behind the raid. He basically used the police as his personal palace guard. Now it seems that the taxpayers of Peoria are going to have to pay out. At, we read: Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis' illegal retaliation Read more [...] Continue reading →

What's Love Got To Do With It?

blackPanthers2 "This is a vision of love," claims a statement from the group Black Lives Matter. Meanwhile, group members have rioted, committed assault, torched and destroyed. "Love won! Love won!" shouted pro-homosexual demonstrators outside a Kentucky courthouse where Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was thrown in jail for practicing her Christian beliefs and not issuing homosexual marriage certificates. The Left will tell you these two movements are about love because they are fighting for equality. But the Read more [...] Continue reading →

"Adult" Charged with Possessing Images of Naked Minor — Himself

prison bars hands The crime involves pictures of a naked minor, but he is being charged as an adult for possessing images of himself on his phone. Mark Horne has written about the "porn police state" before (also here). He has also written about how severe penalties are used due to moral outrage that, while justified, involves prosecuting a person for a crime he did not commit. It seems we have all of that as well as a bizarre mental self-contradiction in this post by Robbie Soave at “Teen Boy Read more [...] Continue reading →

84-Year-Old Retired General Subjected to Police Brutality?

police brutality He said in response to the police brutality, “It’s the first time in my life I’m ashamed to be an American.” Here is the video report of a local media outlet on what happened: The line at the end really gets to me—that if military police under Retired Army General William J. Livsey's command back in the day had behaved as the police behaved in his house, he would have court-martialed them. According to Mint Press News: This all started when a delivery driver said his debit Read more [...] Continue reading →

What First Amendment? Virginia State Police Forced BBC Journalists to Delete Video

bill-of-rights BBC journalists at the scene of shooting suspect's car crash were threatened if they did not delete video as ordered. So I assume you have all heard that a homosexual African American shot and murdered two straight whites on live TV. This was, of course, not a hate crime and never will be labeled as one. This story from PRI caught my eye and makes me wonder why we even claim to have a First Amendment: “Virginia police order BBC journalists to delete footage of suspected shooter's crash.” BBC Read more [...] Continue reading →

The First Legal, Armed Police Drones Are Here!

drone Thanks to drone industry lobbyists, we now have armed police drones in one of our states. How long before other legislatures are purchased and pressured? It is a small start. The first armed police drones only have taser weapons. But it is still a start. Where will it end? The most disturbing element in this is the role of technology businesses in taking sides in the legislative process. Much of the Daily Beast article is taken up with the debate in the legislature about whether to require Read more [...] Continue reading →

Mother, Children, Terrorized by Police by Mistake

SWAT gunpoint She was naked, clutching her children, and praying as her fiancé was also terrorized by police. I guess Marianne Diaz should count herself lucky that no one in her household was shot dead, while lying face down. CBS Boston reports, “SWAT Team Raids Wrong Worcester Home, Residents Say.” Marianne Diaz and her fiancé, Bryant Alequin, felt their lives were in danger when a SWAT team raided their third-floor apartment on Hillside Street with guns drawn. Diaz says she grabbed her seven-year-old Read more [...] Continue reading →

Singer Accuses TSA of Sexual Assault; TSA Disagrees

tsa-checkpoint Morrisey claims a TSA agent grabbed his private areas for no real reason, but that is business as usual. Morrisey is a famous pop singer who claimes he was sexually assaulted by a TSA officer. He wrote about the incident on his blog: On leaving the US on 27 July I flew from San Francisco International Airport to London on flight BA 284. At 2:30 in the afternoon I went through the usual airport security procedure including the stand-up 'scanner', and all was well - no bleeps and nothing unusual.
