When we say cops are "predators in uniform," we're not merely saying it as a euphemism.
From the LA Times:
Two days after a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy allegedly kidnapped and raped a female motorist, he solicited sex from a second female driver in front of a witness, prosecutors said Wednesday.The AV Times reports the officer was "relieved of duty with pay since 2010," only just recently getting cut off, so he has been receiving hordes of taxpayer money for the last three years.
Jose Rigaberto Sanchez, 28, is charged with 11 counts related to incidents in September 2010, when he allegedly tried to coerce female motorists into sex in exchange for not arresting them.

Sanchez pulled over a woman in Palmdale while on duty on Sept. 22, 2010, and allegedly offered not to arrest her on an outstanding warrant in exchange for sex, prosecutors said. The seven-year veteran then allegedly raped and sodomized the woman.
Two nights later, he solicited a bribe in the form of sexual activity from a woman he pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence, said Jane Robison, a district attorney’s spokeswoman. Robison said the deputy solicited the bribe in front of another witness.

Bradley Manning is the only combat veteran of the Iraq war whose service is worth honoring. Like hundreds of thousands of servicemen, Manning carried out unlawful orders to participate in an illegal war. Unlike any of the rest, he took necessary action to expose discrete criminal acts committed in the larger context of that illegal enterprise.
While serving as an intelligence analyst in Iraq, Manning sometimes felt as if he were “watching nonstop snuff films,” found guilty on numerous counts, some are pointing out that it seems odd that he exposed so much law breaking by representatives of the US... and none of those people are facing any jail time, whereas Manning is facing life in prison. Some have tried to argue that Manning's leaks didn't reveal any abuse, and thus he's not a w... (more)

For years a debate has raged in monetary economics over the credibility of the theory that a more stable monetary system would emerge were the system to allow for concurrent currencies operating under no legal restrictions.
