Prattville, AL — A 17-year-old high school student was having fun and talking to a girl at a football game Friday when all of the sudden a ski-masked Phenix City Police Officer comes from behind and assaults him.

Police officers were near the students because they were trying to move them back from the railing. Cameron Rader, the boy who was assaulted in the video says he was no where near the railing, and we can clearly see in the video that he was not near the railing before the

The fight apparently got messy as students began throwing food.

Two videos were taken showing a ve

Man Imprisoned For Decades On False Child Molestation Charge Freed After Claim Recanted posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (Associated Press)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
SEATTLE (AP) - A man who had been in prison for nearly two decades was released from custody Thursday, two years after his supposed victim recanted allegations that he molested her.

Jerry Lee Brock, 55, had been in prison since his conviction for first-degree molestation in 1995. In 2012, the alleged victim, Regina Rush, came forward to say she made the whole thing up, partly as a way to get more attention from her mother.

Last week, Thurston County Superior Court J

Note the state still insists he be denied his right to own a gun and travel freely for three months while they sit around and do absolutely nothing to fully exonerate the man they wrongly imprisoned. Keep in mind this is not solely the fault of the faux victim, but the justice system which sentenced the innocent man to prison without hard evidence. The old adage of "better 100 innocent men go free than one guilty be imprisoned" was upended years ago to "better 100 innocent men be imprisoned than one guilty man go free." - Chris, InfoLib


Perpetual Lies About Freedom and Democracy posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (Michael S. Rozeff)
[Category: Commentary]
When U.S. governments take Americans into war, we hear them justify it as a fight for freedom. Often they rationalize it as an anti-tyranny fight, a pro-peace fight and a pro-democracy fight.

Freedom appeals to Americans. It is a core American value, even if it's not honored in practice here at home.

When politicians use freedom to justify war, they are making an emotional, not a reasoned, appeal. Why? It's because freedom, while a good thing, is never alone a suffi

Washington Cop Attempts to Incite Photographer by Invading Personal Space posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (PINAC)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]


One tactic we occasionally see is when a cop stands directly in your personal space, close enough where he can kiss you, claiming he has the right to stand where he pleases -- when you know if you would do the same to him, he would fear for his life and kill you.

What they’re really doing is hoping the citizen pushes the cop off or punches him in the face, which you will see is v

Bill Aimed At Shutting Off NSA's Water Starts Moving Forward Again posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (Techdirt)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
The attempt to nerf the NSA's new data center in Utah continues. As we covered here at the beginning of this year, legislators and activists began pushing a bill that would cut off the NSA's water supply if it continued to gather data on American citizens. It's an interesting move, one that leverages the states' abilities to combat o... (more)


Baltimore Prosecutors Withdraw Evidence Rather Than Talk About Police Department's Stingray Usage posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (Techdirt)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
They justify the use of Stingray devices (IMSI catchers/cell tower spoofers) by pointing out how great they are at catching criminals. They justify the secrecy surrounding them by claiming the release of any details will compromise investigations. And then they pull something like this. ... (more)


On Media Outlets That Continue to Describe Unknown Drone Victims As "Militants" posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (Glenn Greenwald)
[Category: Commentary]
It has been more than two years since The New York Times revealed that “Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties” of his drone strikes which “in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants…unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.” The paper noted that “this counting method may ...
