Why Are Police Trained To Be Cowards? posted 07/31/2010, 3:34 PM (William Norman Grigg)

Melissa Greenfield appeared to be a slender, ordinary 20-year-old woman wearing a neck brace. The device in her hand appeared to be a commonplace cell phone.

But viewed in light of the paramount law enforcement concern, “officer safety,” Greenfield was transformed into a potential SMERSH assassin. So the heroic Sgt. Jonathan Burke of Ohio’s Delaware County Sheriff’s Office simply had to arrest her, confiscate her property, and hold her in jail for three days, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

At least, that’s how we’re supposed to view what was done to Greenfield and her boyfriend, Colton Dorich, on July 9 at a Flying J truckstop near Columbus.

Like many others their age, the vacationing couple was funding their trip across the country by soliciting donations from other travelers. While this could be called panhandling, it isn’t a crime.

Dorich’s sign -- which he displayed while walking his dog -- triggered a passerby to call the police. When Burke arrived, he demanded that Dorich produce ID.  Melissa withdrew her T-Mobile phone and announced that she was quite sensibly making a record of the event "for legal purposes and our own safety."

Unfortunately, Greenfield didn’t understand that in any encounter between an armed agent of state coercion and a mere Mundane, it is only the former who is entitled to protection.

“When a sheriff’s deputy encounters an individual holding something in his or her hand, the deputy will take action to identify the item. This is done for the safety of the deputy, the involved parties and the public,” insisted Delaware County Sheriff Walter L. Davis III.

Of course, “safety” in this context supposedly means unqualified submission to those wearing the habiliments of the state’s punitive priesthood, who

A Cleveland Officer has been dismissed for mishandling evidence.

Roger Smith admitted he lied to police after keeping marijuana that was found in the pocket of Dustin Ledford, the victim of the fatal crash on APD-40 last weekend.

Smith was given the evidence at the hospital. According to proper protocol, he was required to turn in the evidence at the end of his shift. The next day Smith was asked for the evidence by his superiors and claimed he had thrown it out of

This is of course hardly being "awarded." This is retribution for being thrown into a cage for years after government thugs knowingly lied to get you jailed.

Release delayed for man exonerated after 27 years -- "He became upset while waiting in a holding cell" posted 07/31/2010, 3:34 PM (Associated Press)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
The release of a Houston man exonerated by DNA tests of a rape for which he has spent 27 years in prison is being delayed by one day.

Forty-four-year old Michael Anthony Green had been set to get a bond during a court hearing Thursday. But his attorney, Bob Wicoff, said officials decided to delay Green's release by one day because he became upset while waiting in a holding cell. Wicoff declined to say how Green got upset but that it would be better if he was given one more day to

The White House is screaming like a stuck pig. WikiLeaks’ release of the Afghan War Documents “puts the lives of our soldiers and our coalition partners at risk.”

What nonsense. Obama’s war puts the lives of American soldiers at risk, and the craven puppet state behavior of “our partners” in serving as US mercenaries is what puts their troops at risk.

Keep in mind that it was someone in the US military that leaked the documents to WikiLeaks. This m

I suppose I don't really have to give you or anyone else a refresher on how government ruins everything for the free market. Whether it be through blatant government greed, or simple red-tape bureaucratic ineptness.

My attention was brought to this due to the non-stop outcry around the world on the horrors of tobacco use. But as this particular case unfolds, we are pressed with a very real question: does the government really care about our health?

"Low carbon fuel standards" mean higher costs, few environmental benefits and less liberty

Within days, Majority Leader Harry Reid intends to bring sweeping energy and climate legislation to the Senate floor. He won't call it cap-and-trade or cap-tax-and-trade, and certainly not a carbon tax.

"Those words are not in my vocabulary," he says. "We're going to work on pollution."

Senator Reid's twenty-pound bill will be laden with lofty language about "cl

Carbon Cronyism: Why Cap-and-Trade Is Not Dead Yet posted 07/31/2010, 3:31 PM (American Thinker)

This past weekend, while addressing the Netroots convention in Las Vegas, Senator Harry Reid gave the gathering of lefties a promise regarding U.S. health care. "We're going to have a public option," Reid said. "It's just a question of when."

The same thing can be said of a cap-and-trade energy bill: The Democrats are determined to get cap-and-trade. It's just a question of when. There's too much money to be made for Democrat cronies to let this opportunity pass.
