Quartzsite, AZ – The Mayor is challenged under a recall election beginning next month. Accusations have been made. The city council is persecuting the Mayor for giving the people a voice. The Chief of Police is also involved in the scandal.
Jennifer Jones is given the floor at a city council meeting open to the public. While she is speaking the council realizes she’s about to air their dirty laundry and quickly beckons their henchman to cart her off.
The Mayor steps in and says Jones has been recognized to speak and has not violated the council’s rules, but the council ignores him and has the woman removed even as the Mayor continues to contest. The police officers ignore the Mayor of the city and remove the woman. It’s obvious who those cops work for, and it’s not the people.

OAKLAND, Calif—A former San Francisco Bay area transit officer in jail for fatally shooting an unarmed man is expected to be released next week after serving 11 months of a two-year sentence.

Not even 2 years and this POS is being released! People have done longer time for shoplifting!!!
He is so sad looking in court but look at him in the shooting video… He is a typical “power tripping” cop. His defense was ‘Taser Confusion’… Why would you taser a suspect that is already handcuffed face down on the ground? That tells you what type of shithead cop he WAS! I am not justifying the kids behavior but whatever he did did not justify being put to death!
Also… where are the charges of the police illegally confiscating phones and tapes?
Michael Allison faces 75 years in prison for recording law enforcement officials without their consent in Robinson, Illinois.
Illinois is one of the states applying old eavesdropping and wiretapping statutes to new technologies like cell phones or anything else that records audio.
Those laws technically make it illegal to record on-duty law enforcement officials without their consent. The penalty for that crime here in Illinois, is a class 1 felony. ***CLICK TO WATCH VIDEO***
***shaking head*** I’m getting the feeling they don’t like being recorded…hmmm.
DONT SHUT THEM OFF!
They can have a camera on US about 99% of the time when we are in public but cry like pre-schoolers when we film them.
These “Public Servants” do NOT like it when the “Public” DISOBEYs… filthy pigs.
They serve WHO again?
In the case of former National Security Agency (NSA) executive Thomas A. Drake – indicted last April and accused of funneling documents to an unnamed reporter at an unnamed newspaper, for stories that have not been identified — the president’s lawyers have made a unique and potentially unprecedented claim.
With less than a month before Drake’s trial begins, the Obama administration has filed a memo with the court claiming the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA) gives judges the right to censor and withhold material that is “unclassified.” ***READ MORE***
This reminds me of The Onion spoof…
INDIANAPOLIS | Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.
In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer’s entry. ***READ MORE***
These guys just took a shit on the 4th Amendment! TOTAL ABUSE OF POWER. Lets see how long this last…
I’m 100% sure this will not last long. Then again… this country has turned into “The Land of The Slave.”
The 4th Amendment-“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
WASHINGTON – The Justice Department on Friday urged a federal appeals court to delay a judge’s ruling overturning a drilling moratorium in the Gulf.
In court papers, the Obama administration said the suspensions in deepwater drilling are crucially important to protect human health and the environment from another disaster.
At the same time, the federal government’s lawyers argued that the moratorium targets only a small number of deepwater operations that present safety concerns, affecting less than 1 percent of the existing structures in the Gulf dedicated to oil exploration and production.
The companies that succeeded in blocking the moratorium “exaggerate by contending that the ‘viability of the entire Gulf of Mexico deepwater industry’ turns on six months’ worth of continued operations at a small fraction of nearly 7,000 active leases,” the government said.
The Justice Department said that the lower court judge, U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman, committed legal error and abused his discretion by blocking the Obama administration moratorium.
How dare he block THEIR moratorium!
Salazar issues halt… Judge lifts… Salazar resumbits halt… Judge lifts… DOJ urges delay.
What a bunch of EGO maniacs!
“If some drilling equipment parts are flawed, is it rational to say all are?”
“Are all airplanes a danger because one was? All oil tankers like Exxon Valdez? All trains? All mines? That sort of thinking seems heavy-handed, and rather overbearing.”-Judge Feldman
Salazar said in a statement Tuesday that the new order will contain additional information making clear why the six-month drilling pause was necessary in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill. The judge in New Orleans who struck down the moratorium earlier Tuesday complained there was insufficient justification for it.
“The decision to impose a moratorium on deepwater drilling was and is the right decision,” Salazar said, adding that the moratorium is needed to protect the communities and the environment of the Gulf Coast that the Justice Department is appealing Tuesday’s court ruling.
“If some drilling equipment parts are flawed, is it rational to say all are?” he asked. “Are all airplanes a danger because one was? All oil tankers like Exxon Valdez? All trains? All mines? That sort of thinking seems heavy-handed, and rather overbearing.”
He also warned that the shutdown would have an “immeasurable effect” on the industry, the local economy and the U.S. energy supply.
What is this???
Obamas office saying “It will be our way… One way or the other”???
THERE ARE 3 PARTS TO OUR GOVERNMENT!!!
Not 1 Mr. President!
Its a Republic… NOT A DICTATORSHIP!
The state attorney general’s office has issued a subpoena threatening officials of the social networking service Twitter with arrest unless they reveal the names of two bloggers who have been critical of Attorney General Tom Corbett and his public corruption investigation.
The subpoena orders Twitter’s custodian of records to provide “any and all subscriber information” pertaining to the accounts ”bfbarbie” and “CasablancaPA,” including name, address, contact information, creation date, and Internet protocol address.
The accounts have criticized Corbett’s use of grand juries, suggesting he used the investigations for political gain and to go after political opponents.
The Twitter representative was supposed to appear before the statewide investigating grand jury on May 14 to “give evidence regarding alleged violations of the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” The court document does not specify what crime is being investigated.
The subpoena, issued May 6, further states that failure to attend may result in an arrest warrant for contempt of court. It is not clear whether Twitter has turned over the information.
Vic Walczak of the American Civil Liberties Union told Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV that the court action “raises grave concerns about abuse of the grand jury process to retaliate against political critics and opponents.” He said Americans “have a right to criticize government officials and to do so anonymously.”
Corbett, who won the Republican nomination for governor Tuesday night, told the television station that he doesn’t have any problem with people criticizing him on Twitter. He refused to discuss the nature of the subpoena, however, stating that the investigation prevents him from discussing the matter.
