Legal Robbery and Murder: Someone Help!

"The thought of a strong powerful government for a long time conjured up images of security and stability in my mind. A government that had the power to regulate everything and keep everyone in check felt like what a country needed to preserve order and thus to create an environment in which people would be able to go about their economic activities, and prosper."

"I discovered that this kind of government, contrary to what I thought, can actually be the recipe for total disintegration of society, turning human beings into beasts and creating a system in which chaos reigns, literally a man-eat-man society."

"I saw first hand that oppression is created by law, and it doesn't matter who is doing it, the injustice is the same and it causes the same kind of suffering to the oppressed, subjecting them to poverty, death, misery and suffering."

"Indeed, much of the money earmarked for 'Homeland Security' has shown up on the streets of America, used against American citizens trying to exercise their free speech rights to protest Bush’s policies, the Iraq war, and global free trade versus worker rights issues. ... In 2003, cities such as Seattle, Wa., and Miami, Fl., have experienced mobs of riot police, paid for by Homeland Security, fully decked out in chemical/urban warfare gear, waving AK-47’s and guns marked 'less lethal,' indiscriminately at crowds of children, mothers, draft-age students, clergy, 'anarchists,' ACLU attorneys, National Lawyers’ Guild Legal Observers, the media, etc. Basic non-violent anti-war protest in America has become very dangerous." ...

"For Dawn Rae Nelson's family, her shooting death by a Chandler police officer was murder."

"To fired Officer Dan Lovelace and his former colleagues in blue, it was self-defense."

"A judge may decide this week if a jury eventually will settle a debate that has raged since Lovelace shot Nelson to death on Oct. 11, 2002."

"Lovelace's shooting of Nelson, 35, who was suspected of attempting to forge a prescription at the drive-through window of a Walgreen's drugstore, ranks as one of the Valley's most controversial and emotionally charged police shootings."

"Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley decided to charge Lovelace criminally and obtained an indictment after concluding the then-officer's life was not in danger."

"Seventeen Stratford High School students are suing the city of Goose Creek and the Berkeley County school district. They say police and school officials terrorized them in a November 5th drug raid."

"The lawsuit was filed Friday in federal court. The suit charges the students' constitutional rights had been violated. It also levels charges of assault, battery and false arrest." ...

"Goose Creek Police Department Lt. Dave Aarons said, only days after the raid, that having guns drawn is a matter of officer safety, because weapons often accompany drug dealing.

"Language in the Omnibus appropriations bill passed today by the U.S. House of Representatives would require that Brady background records on gun sales be destroyed within 24 hours."

"The amendment creates other headaches for police and federal law enforcement as well. If enacted into law, it would block the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) from requiring gun dealers to take regular inventories of their firearms; block public scrutiny of corrupt gun dealers by preventing the release of crime gun traces and multiple gun sale data; and require that ATF disavow the conclusions of numerous studies it has published."

"But none of the proposed bill changes gets to the heart of the patrol's concerns -- that people should not have physical contact with a gun during a traffic stop."

-------
In other words, even if you go through a background check -- the one cops go through -- before being given a "permit", these police officers want you to be defenseless against the weapons they wield. And somehow it doesn't dawn on them that if you got pulled over and wanted to kill a cop, you'd do it with or without a "permit" anyway. A little too logical for such simple minds to comprehend, apparently. Double-standard fascist nonsense -- so typical of some of the political leaders in law enforcement today and especially the ones running the Ohio Highway Patrol. This is the kind of elitist, treasonable abuse that caused America's founders to raise the black flag and start killing redcoats. The implication -- that "we are your superiors" when exactly the opposite is true -- is going to fester and come to a head some day unless thugs with badges stop pretending they own us and our basic rights. That's not a prediction; it's a fact.

Supporters of Ohio’s concealed-carry gun proposal gather on Third Street in Perrysburg for an ‘open defense’ walk, one of several that have been held across the state to back the firearms measure. Ohio law allows residents to carry a gun in plain view if in self-defense, but not if the weapon is concealed. Gov. Bob Taft has said he would sign the concealed-carry bill if it has background checks, training, and support from law enforcement.

-------
That is what the governor has been saying for years. Now that it looks like they may get it, he's added "and of course I'll veto any bill that protects the privacy of permit holders."

A string of college students turn up missing or dead in Minnesota and neighboring Wisconsin. Recently, sexual assaults were reported at two St. Paul campuses and the state's largest university."

"But the public's perception of safety for students does not accurately reflect reality."

"The first U.S. Justice Department study of its kind on college students and violent crime provides some somewhat welcome but guarded findings." ...

"The crime victimization survey, which analyzed crime rates between 1995 and 2000, found that the estimated 7.7 million college students ages 18 to 24 in the United States are less likely to fall victim to a violent crime than non-students the same age."

"The 505 people who died or were injured by bullets in Indianapolis last year cost the medical community more than $5 million to treat, according to a new study to be released today."

"That price tag comes even as homicides have been decreasing in recent years countywide, according to cost figures in a study of shootings in 2002 by the Indiana Partnership to Prevent Firearm Violence. The report also found that males were eight times more likely to be injured from a firearm than females. Blacks were nearly six times more likely to be injured from a firearm than whites, and the people most at risk of being hurt by gun violence are black men 20 to 24 years old."

"Should you fight back against an attacker? For years the conventional advice was no, that women who fight back are more likely to be hurt. But now, many studies show women who fight back suffer injuries no more severe than those who don't. Here's some advice for everyone."

-Limit your risk.

*Stay safe. Once an attack starts, the likelihood is that the victim will be hurt in some way, so the best strategy is to avoid the attack in the first place. Make sure you`re home is secure and your card doors are locked. Be aware of your surroundings wheneveryou`re out, day or night, and don`t go alone if you can avoid it. Remember: most attacks are by someone the victim knows.

Avoiding an attack is not always possible, so here is some better advice: Arm Yourself!

"On Friday, U.S. District Judge Gerald E. Rosen said the Ann Arbor School District acted improperly in the case of a Roman Catholic student who wanted to express her views on homosexuality."

"One panel organized by the Gay/Straight Alliance included six religious leaders and was titled 'Religion and Homosexuality.' The panel was arranged with the belief the leaders supported the view that religion and homosexuality aren't inconsistent -- and that all were 'welcoming and affirming' of gay rights."

"Forbes, 32, who was unarmed when the cop shot him in the legs, was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, police said. Cops recovered two swords - one of which had a 24-inch blade - from his apartment. One of the swords had blood on it, authorities said." ...

"Officer Bobby Lewis, 27, who was shot in the chest and knee by his partner, was taken in stable condition to Jacobi Medical Center, where Mayor Bloomberg paid the seven-year veteran a visit. The mayor credited a bullet-proof vest with saving the cop's life."

"Police aren't sure how it happened, but forensic evidence shows the suspects were wounded by their own gunfire, Aurora police spokesman Dan Ferrelli said. The evidence includes the nature of their wounds and where shell casings were found in the victim's home, he said."

"Have suspects shot themselves before in the commission of a crime? Yes, it's happened... But it certainly is unusual, and it's even more unusual for three suspects to shoot themselves."

It's nice to see some karmic retribution every once in a while.

"...As I was driving home, it struck me. Maybe there's a value in a bad odour."

"That value, Lieutenant Mathers thought, would be in clearing out the vacant buildings that become magnets for prostitutes, drug dealers and gangs. After a few experiments with chemical stink bombs, he and Deputy Scott Gage found a petroleum-based gel called SkunkShot on the internet. 'It's pretty weird,' Deputy Gage said, 'but it's brilliant.' "

"And the Skunk Squad was born. Its first success, Lieutenant Mathers said, came early this year on Long Beach Boulevard." ...

"A gel using the scent of cat urine was being tested, he said."

"After the Clifton/Cincinnati Open Carry Walk was over, I met my dad at Northgate Mall. Got something at Suncoast, and as I left I noticed two sheriff's deputies and a mall security officer. As I began toward the exit the deputy asked me to stop, then questioned me about why I am carrying a gun. I told him "for self-defense." Then they all began to ask me if I am law enforcement. I of course said no, 'I'm just a citizen,' so they began with the 'you can't carry a weapon.' "

"Those of us who want to reduce the size of government are often accused of being heartless. Somehow, millions of poor people are going to die horribly due to lack of government benefits if we Libertarians actually manage to reduce a dime of spending."

"The statists who make these arguments are the truly heartless ones, and now I have proof. Not only are they heartless, they are colder and crueler than any movie villain." ...

"This statist malevolence truly bared its teeth during the campaign for that $1.2 billion tax hike in Alabama back in September. Voters were told dire stories of how health care would face the ax, police patrols would disappear, and all the prisons would have to be emptied. That is if you don't give us $1.2 billion more than we've already flushed down the toilet."
