Now, Albuquerque has created a fake loophole. The Washington Examiner reports: New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican, signed a historic reform of civil forfeiture in her state earlier this year. The reform law cracked down on the much-abused practice by, among other things, requiring that defendants be convicted Read more [...] Continue reading →

HIPAA and How it Affects Parenting

hipaaLogo1 It's every parent's nightmare.  You get that phone call in the middle of the night delivering the horrific news that your child was in an accident.  You rush to the hospital, numb, but ready to serve as your child's advocate and to make all the right decisions about his care.  When you get there, you're told that you have no say in his care.  Ok, then, you wonder: why did they call me?  Oh, yes, you are the party responsible for the financial obligations.  You can pay, but you can't say!

Police Brutality Cover Up

police brutality Over the last year, one of the biggest stories in the news has been police brutality.  From the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, MO, to the killing of Corey Jones in South Florida, violence among police officers has been in the headlines every week. Police forces should be all about making a better impression on the public. For some, this means business as usual.  These are the good cops--the ones who go to work every day.  They do their jobs and keep their noses clean while they do it. These Read more [...] Continue reading →

Law Enforcement Overstepping Bounds

police corrupt Government servants are stealing from innocent people, again. The fact that it is legal to seize people's belongings before they are convicted, or, even before a case has been built against them or charges brought, is egregious  indeed.  In Tennessee, lawmakers want to reduce police agencies' ability to seize cash and vehicles without actual criminal convictions. Those in law enforcement are up in arms about this move to protect the rights of the people. From The Times Free Press A 2010 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 →
