Police Settle Case After Allegedly Harassing & Arresting Man Over 'Letters To The Editor' Criticizing Police posted 03/04/2012, 10:01 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Via La Crosse Tribune:
Antonio Angelini accused Sgt. Jason Pipkin of violating his constitutional rights in retaliation for criticizing the police department in newspaper letters to the editor, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Madison.

“Unfortunately, when the police fail to police themselves, they end up in federal court,” Angelini’s attorney Frank Doherty said.

On March 6, 2010, Pipkin did a “walk-through” of Angelini’s business, Angelini’s Pizzeria and Ristorante, and demanded to inspect his liquor license, according to the suit.

Angelini was later arrested but no charges were filed.

As the case was settled, it appears the cop will face no repercussions for his alleged harassment.

Revisiting the caring nature of Individualism posted 03/04/2012, 10:01 PM (J.G. Vibes)
[Category: Commentary]
Is there any valid reason or excuse to violate the rights of a nonviolent person? That is the primary question that separates the two political philosophies of collectivism and individualism. I’m sure that this was not a question that was raised in your college political science class, but nonetheless this is the fundamental question that determines whether a society is collectivist or individualist. While it may be true that there is a lot of grey area because these terms are defined so many... (more)

[Category: Science/Technology]
The file-sharing landscape is slowly adjusting in response to the continued push for more anti-piracy tools, the final Pirate Bay verdict, and the raids and arrests in the Megaupload case. Faced with uncertainty and drastic changes at file-sharing sites, many users are searching for secure, private and uncensored file-sharing clients. Despite the image its name suggests, RetroShare is one such future-proof client.

Chipping Away At The First Amendment: New 'Trespassing' Bill Could Be Used To Criminalize Legitimate Protests posted 03/04/2012, 9:57 PM (Techdirt)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
Don't you just love Congress, where almost no bills actually are what they say on the tin? There's some buzz building online about the "Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011" (or HR 347), which has been positioned as a simple updating of trespassing laws concerning federal grounds. However, as some are pointing out, hidden in there is quite the Easter egg that effectively ... (more)

Cops Ticket Woman For Resting Injured Leg On Seat In Deserted Subway Train posted 03/04/2012, 9:57 PM (Gothamist)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Brooklyn resident Kate Wilson was riding the D train home to Sunset Park around 1 a.m. one morning in February when several police officers entered her subway car at 36th street. The subway car was mostly empty, with plenty of empty seats, and Wilson was resting her right leg—which she had injured in a race that day—on a corner of one seat. What followed was an absurd yet all too familiar encounter with overzealous, quota-filling transit cops.

[Category: Resistance]
The Occupiers who are planning to descend on Chicago in May to protest the G8 and NATO meetings can breathe a sign of relief today. The Illinois law which made it a felony to make audio recordings of police officers without their permission has been found unconstitutional by a state judge, who ruled that it could have the effect of criminalizing “wholly innocent conduct.”

Judge bans 17-year-old from driving for life posted 03/04/2012, 9:56 PM (The Daily Mail)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
A judge has made an example of a 17-year-old boy who crashed his speeding car into a tree by imposing a lifetime driving ban on him.

Judge William Guglietta revoked Lyle Topa’s license for the rest of his life in connection to a crash in Charlestown, Connecticut last October.

Topa, who was not wearing a seat belt, was racing another car and driving more than 20 miles per hour over the speed limit when he hit a tree.

Too bad he wasn't a local Council-member, he wouldn't have even been charged for speeding.

[Category: Politics/Corruption]
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Sunday the United States will not hesitate to attack Iran with military force to prevent it from acquiring a nuclear weapon, but he cautioned that "too much loose talk of war" recently has only helped Tehran and driven up the price of oil.
This headline sums up the government quite well!

TSA forces new mom to pump milk out of her breasts in public restroom before boarding the plane posted 03/04/2012, 9:56 PM (NaturalNews)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
The latest example of all this involves a Hawaiian mother who recently attempted to board an airplane in Lihue, Hawaii. She was carrying a breast pump and several empty bottles to hold her breast milk later on. For those who may not know, many new moms frequently use breast pumps to fill bottles with their own natural mother's milk which they later give to their children.

Remarkably, upon seeing these empty bottles, the TSA agent in charge lapsed into a power trip frenzy and told

DMCA: Horrors of a Broad and Automated Censorship Tool posted 03/04/2012, 9:55 PM (TorrentFreak)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
The DMCA was once drafted to protect the interests of copyright holders, allowing them to take infringing content offline. Today, however, the system is systematically abused by rightsholders as an overbroad censorship tool. One third of the notices sent to Google are false, companies like Microsoft censor perfectly legal sites, and others use the DMCA to get back at competitors.
