Police To Search City Beachgoers posted 06/06/2010, 10:56 AM (Chicagoist)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Even though the city wants more liquor served and sold near the beach, Chicago police are stepping up security and targeting illegal drinking along the city’s lakefront. In the wake of increased violence at some city beaches, police have begun random searches of bags and coolers and installed more security cameras. Ald. Vi Daley (43rd Ward) told the Tribune the random bag searches wouldn’t be permanent, but was hopeful they would help curb incidents such as the large party broken up by police that Mayor Daley blamed on suburban youth and text messaging.

Illinois ACLU spokesman Ed Yohnka raised some understandable concerns, telling the Tribune, “Generally a person who is on a public way, which clearly the pathways up and down the lakefront are, has an expectation of privacy in their purses and backpacks and briefcases.” The Chicago Police however, stated that officers have jurisdiction to search, as it is Chicago Park District property.

While most people have complied with the random searches (those who refuse are asked to leave their bags behind), we have to wonder how effective they will be. Unless Ald. Daley’s plan also includes random pat downs and breathalyzers, people will still try to find a way to sneak booze onto the beach. In addition, we shouldn’t be so flippant about what could potentially be a violation of the fourth amendment. Finally, if alcohol is the only fuel for the violence, why would the city approve more licenses to serve near the beach?

Police And Courts Regularly Abusing Wiretapping Laws To Arrest People For Filming Cops Misbehaving In Public Places posted 06/06/2010, 10:56 AM (TechDirt)
[Category: Commentary]
Back in April, we wrote about the case of a motorcyclist in Maryland who was wearing a helmet-mounted camera while riding his motorcycle (admittedly, above the speed limit). As he stopped at a traffic light, an off-duty police-officer in plain clothes and an unmarked car jumped out of his car with his gun drawn. All of this was caught on video. No matter what you think of the cop's reaction, what happened later is ridiculous: after the biker, Anthony John Graber III, posted the video from his... (more)

All charges dropped against cop in fatal crash posted 06/06/2010, 10:56 AM (Chicago Breaking News)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
With a judge's earlier ruling that Chicago Police Officer John Ardelean had been arrested and detained without probable cause, Cook County prosecutors today dropped all charges against him in a crash that killed two people.

The 36-year-old officer was charged with drunken driving and reckless homicide after his SUV broadsided a car on Thanksgiving 2007.

Ardelean, flanked by a handful of police officers, strode silently out of the courthouse without speaking.

Stalin bust installed at D-Day Memorial posted 06/06/2010, 10:55 AM (Lynchburg News Advance)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
A bust of dictator Joseph Stalin has been placed at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford despite public protest over its presence.

The sculpture was installed at the memorial Tuesday, said William McIntosh, president of the memorial foundation.

Richard Pumphrey, a Lynchburg College professor and artist, finished the piece last year. The bust of the reviled Soviet dictator is part of a series of Allied world leaders who united against Hitler’s Germany.

Revolution in Cuba: Free Markets posted 06/06/2010, 10:55 AM (Center for a Stateless Society)
[Category: Economy]
Market anarchism — as the very term implies — advocates the sum total dissolution of political governments in favor of unrestricted free markets. Disadvocates, recant. Perhaps nowhere can the inevitable victory of market forces be so roundly demonstrated at the moment than in communist Cuba.

In a recent CNN piece by David Ariosto titled "Cuba's Quiet Revolution," we see that an entirely different kind of revolution is now taking place:
