Pro Liberate

All that Brad Campeau-Laurion wanted was to use the bathroom.

  The beer he had consumed an hour earlier had completed its tour of his digestive tract and was impatient to leave. So when the Seventh Inning Stretch arrived, and the crowd at Yankee Stadium arose to sing “God Bless America,” Campbeau-Laurion quietly excused himself to attend to this biological imperative.

  He wound up being assaulted by two off-duty New York police officers and dragged from the stadium – in humiliating fashion, in full view of tens of thousands of people – for desecrating a recently minted “patriotic” tradition.

People Are Angry, and Politicians Are Nervous  

The most remarkable thing about civil unrest is that there hasn't been more of it.

Politicians are making a hash of this country – and much of the rest of the civilized world. We know it. They know it. They know we know it. But we don't feel we can do anything much to stop them.

That right there is the pre-condition for civil unrest – when people are frustrated and politicians are nervous.

Worse, that was how things stood before last fall's crash. Before pols on both left and right launched the biggest mass transfer of wealth in history – transferring our wealth (what we had left of it!) to their friends on Wall Street and in the banking industry. In other words, that's how things were before things got bad!

Pastor Jose Elias Moran was preparing for an early Wednesday prayer service yesterday (July 1) at the Iglesia Profetica Peniel in Webster, Texas when he was informed that a member of his congregation had been stopped by the police. Out of concern for the church member, Pastor Moran went out to inquire what had happened, only to have the officer, Raymond Berryman, snarl at him to go back inside. According to witnesses, when Moran tried to explain, “I’m the pastor,” Berryman grabbed at his shirt...

       With regards to the Harvest Christian Fellowship, I would strenuously suggest that the pastor immediately divest himself of his corporate status if he no longer wishes Caesar to be his lord.  The hard cold facts are, because this group chose to incorporate, their identity is no longer that of a church under Christ, but rather a corporation under Caesar.  And that's the law, both God's and mans!  
(Publisher: Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's?... Well, I have to ask, Does Caesar think that there is anything that isn't his?)

"The minute I saw the faces of the agents, I knew I was in trouble. The first page of the Unthinkable script mentioned 9/11, terror plots, and the fact that the (fictional) world had become a police state. The TSA agents then proceeded to interrogate me, having a hard time understanding that a comic book could be about anything other than superheroes, let alone that anyone actually wrote scripts for comics.

In January, without any recognizable corporate media coverage, Rep. Bob Filner, a California Democrat, introduced H.R. 675. The bill would amend title 10 of the United States Code and extend to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms.

NRA-ILA has recently received several calls from NRA members in border states who have been visited or called by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. In some cases, agents have asked to enter these people's homes, and requested serial numbers of all firearms the members possess.

In each case, the agents were making inquiries based on the number of firearms these NRA members had recently bought, and in some cases the agents said they were asking because the members had bought types of guns that are frequently recovered in Mexico.   Some of the agents have used heavy-handed tactics.

Call it déjà vu all over again.

It was Dec. 20, 2008, and Terry Bressi found himself idling through a remote Border Patrol checkpoint on State 86. He was simply returning from his job at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, on the Tohono O'odham Reservation west of Tucson. But minutes later, he possessed a newly minted citation for impeding traffic. One might be forgiven for assuming that traffic impediment is the actual purpose of these checkpoints, which are popping up with increasing regularity across the Southwest. But when it comes to Terry Bressi, the Border Patrol and the Tohono O'odham Police Department have a little score to settle.

In a twist on the typical "bad cop" story, officers are put on administrative leave for a very harmless picture. See the pic for yourself and tell me if it compromises community values or police integrity. I mean come on, seriously. If I was their supervisor I wouldn't know what to reprimand them for. How do we expect law enforcement to build relationships with people if they can't even interact with us?

If you feel as I do, I hope you'll join me in sending a friendly note to Flagstaff PD to tell them that while we appreciate the efforts to maintain upstanding character, this issue shouldn't be one. Absent any more incriminating back-story, I think these guys should be back on the job.
