MA: 'Boston Mayor was right to drop gun case'
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

"This case was frankly a publicity stunt - an expensive publicity stunt supposedly in the cause of "public health." But the roughly $500,000 it cost so far was diverted from other goals. There is no telling how many more infants might have been recruited for immunization, how many more mothers might have received help toward avoiding a low birth weight baby, or dozens of other things that might have been done..." - Opinion of BostonHerald.com

LAST TWO PARAGRAPHS:

"the Israeli government has authorized putting more licensed handguns on the streets in the hope of citizens being in the right place at the right time to prevent terror attacks. Accordingly, the Israeli army will issue handgun permits to 40,000 reserve duty officers of the rank of captain and above."

"The General Assembly eliminated grants to localities implementing the Virginia Exile reforms. Republicans appear embarrassed because they have cut funding for precisely the type of tough-on-crime policy the party professes to like. Democrats can score points simply by sitting back and watching their pathetic colleagues squirm." -- Opinion of the TimesDispatch.com

McCONNELL: "the provisions obviously that are going to be challenged are the 60-day gag rule against citizens in expressing themselves ... We also believe that the federalization of the parties by eliminating non-federal money raises serious 1st, 5th, and 10th Amendment issues."

FEINGOLD: "Independent expenditures that are truly independent on issues are protected by the First Amendment, and that's where we stop. We stopped short of that. We're trying to stop the scams."

"A man who posted on the Web details of what he asserts is an investigative report into alleged improprieties at a Seattle residence for senior citizens has been in jail for a month - with no end to his incarceration in sight."

From Trummel's Website: "[Justice] Doerty has allowed his "clients" to misuse antiharassment laws by accepting their claim that newsgathering constitutes "surveillance" and reporting news defines as "harassment". By that, he has effectively denied the constitutional right to gather news to a journalist who has held an international press card for many years."

This news account is striking, not because of the killing of the dog, but the weapon enhancement.

If you are going to kill an animal or commit any crime, the law [and media] prefers anything other then a firearm for a weapon.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The saddest epitaph which can be carved in memory of a vanished liberty is that it was lost because its possessors failed to stretch forth a saving hand while yet there was time. JUSTICE GEORGE SUTHERLAND (1938)
