"Police officers, prison guards and other government officials who improperly abuse the rights of individual Americans have long been recognized in federal law as a threat to society as a whole. That's why, immediately after the Civil War, Congress approved Title 18 USC 242 -- a statute making it a crime to deprive any person of their rights 'under color of law.'"

"But, as case-by-case Justice Department records make very clear, a law on the books does not always translate into a law that is enforced. In this particular case, for example, the latest available Justice Department data show that federal prosecutors declined to file charges against virtually all -- 98.7% -- of the individuals who the investigative agencies had concluded were in violation of 18 USC 242."

A left-wing monopoly on campuses

... "Today campus leftism is not merely prevalent. It is radical, aggressive, and deeply intolerant..." ...

"So, for example, at Cornell, of the 172 faculty members whose party affiliation was recorded, 166 were liberal (Democrats or Greens) and six were conservative (Republicans or Libertarians). At Stanford the liberal-conservative ratio was 151-17. At San Diego State it was 80-11. At SUNY Binghamton, 35-1. At UCLA, 141-9. At the University of Colorado-Boulder, 116-5." ...

Submitter's Note: Would these Leftist "professors" support affirmative action along political lines, to assure fairness in political party representation among the staff at these indoctrination centers?

"The fight over whether employees should have access to firearms at work seems destined for a tortuous journey through the courts."

"Meanwhile, many companies have banned, even in parking lots, weapons owned by employees who have concealed weapons permits."

"As one might expect, tempers can get hot over this issue."

"As Dan Consalvo, security chief for State Farm Insurance's corporate office in Bloomington, Ill., put it, 'People get intimidated even when other people talk about weapons at work.'" ...

"The solution, as he sees it, is for companies to ban all firearms on their premises, including parking lots." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Explain to me again how keeping a law abiding person from having a gun in his/her car will stop a deranged employee who is willing to violate the far more serious prohibition against murder from doing what he plans.

... "An Animal Protection Litigation section was created in the wake of the recent merger of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Fund for Animals. Attorney Jonathan Lovvorn was selected to head the department. The organization intends to add four litigating attorneys by the end of the year."

"'The animal rights movement sees the courts as the easiest way to realize its anti-hunting agenda,' said U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Senior Vice President Rick Story. 'Anti-hunters are in court right now to halt black bear hunting and kick sportsmen off of public lands. The move to implement an HSUS Animal Protection Litigation function so quickly and the commitment to the program's expansion prove that it is a priority for the newly formed mega-anti-hunting rights group.'" ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A son of a Maryland Heights police captain was charged Sunday with stealing his father's service pistol, authorities say.

The suspect, Louis Weingart, 19, of Maryland Heights, then traded the gun to a drug dealer in exchange for crack cocaine, authorities say.

The St. Louis County prosecuting attorney's office charged Weingart with felony theft on Sunday.

The gun was taken Saturday from a locked container at the home of Capt. Gil Weingart, authorities say.

After the younger Weingart made his deal in St. Louis, he returned home and confessed to his father, police said.

Maryland Heights authorities were trying Sunday evening to recover the 9 mm weapon.

"Gil is a great guy," said Maryland Heights Police Chief Tom O'Connor. "He's extremely embarrassed and feels terrible over this."

All proceeds from this law enforcement tactical style match will benefit the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute."

"In May 2003, eleven-month old Isabella de Bethencourt succumbed to cancer at Children's Hospital in Boston ... Since Michael de Bethencourt is a well-known police trainer, a pistol match seemed like a natural way to combine some fun with fundraising for a worthy cause. This event is open to all members of the law enforcement community and will be held at the prestigious Smith & Wesson Academy in Springfield, MA." ...

"Distributing free firearm locks to the public, local police are aiming to limit tragic gun accidents."

"'It will be very effective as long as people take advantage of it,' said Chief Edward A. Mello, noting that the department had not issued a single gunlock since receiving a new supply of 500 three weeks ago."

"'It's every gun owner's obligation to safely secure their firearm,' he added."

"The department is one of several in the area ... offering the locks through Project ChildSafe, a national program funded by the U.S. Department of Justice. Launched last year with a $50-million USDOJ grant - and with recent awards of $30 million - the program strives to disperse 32 million gunlocks nationwide." ...

"Each kit includes safety curriculum and a cable-style gun lock, which fits most handguns, rifles and shotguns."

"California has a trigger lock law and saw a 12% increase in fatal firearm accidents in 1994. Texas doesn't have one and experienced a 28% decrease in the same year. However, trigger-locks do render guns inaccessible for self-defense."

"Two deer-hunting photos last week produced complaints from opponents and ambivalence from outdoors fans."

"For me, they represented token coverage of one of the paper's 'blind spots,' those areas that have achieved popularity in American society but have gained almost no foothold among journalists."

"That's because newspeople do not hunt, in much the same way they generally don't go to gun shows, don't play video games and don't watch auto racing. There are many more examples, but you get the idea."

"Despite efforts to offer occasional coverage of these things, editors hold little interest in them, and the paper reflects that lack of enthusiasm. And that's not lost on readers." ...

... "There is no doubt the latest Conservative policy on crime will win public support. The party has endorsed a private member's bill, that would amend the 1967 Criminal Law Act so that householders who confront burglars would only face prosecution if the force they used was 'grossly disproportionate'. ..."

"There are several things wrong with this political move. First is the suggestion that the current criminal justice system is 'limp wristed' and leans too much in defence of offenders. The current law already allows householders to use reasonable force when confronting a burglar in their home. With more than 100,000 burglaries reported every year, there are numerous occasions where this happens when neither the police nor prosecutors see any reason why the householder should be prosecuted." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Indonesian police have swooped on a businessman in Jakarta for importing children’s toy guns that they say could be used for crimes, a report said.

The man was arrested after customs officials found a cargo of what they originally described as semi-automatic combat air pistols, but which police later found were toys, the Detikcom news website said. Jakarta Police detective chief Mathius Salempang said officers nevertheless decided to charge the importer for possession of firearms because the playthings posed a danger. 'The gun toys can be categorised as firearms because they can be used to threaten or scare people,' Salempang was quoted as saying. Under Indonesia’s tough regulations governing the possession of firearms, violators face a possible maximum death sentence.

"Though genocide by attrition daily claims over a thousand lives in Darfur, adding to a total morality figure of approximately 350,000 human beings, the once austerely clear moral character of this human destruction is slowly dissipating. In its place, we are being encouraged in various quarters to believe that the non-Arab or African populations of Darfur are dying and suffering because of insecurity that is increasingly attributed to the Darfuri insurgency groups. The central role of the Janjaweed---Khartoum's savage militia proxy---is highlighted less often, and is frequently conflated with an unspecified mélange of 'armed militias.' The compelling underlying grievances that originally gave rise to the insurgency are also discussed less often, especially by Kofi Annan and his special representative for Sudan, Jan Pronk. But neither is there much stomach for historical truths in Washington, European capitals, or in other quarters." ...
