Early release “clerical error” leads to another murdered victim…

“Leon’s mother-in-law, Bernadette Alness, told KUSA that someone should “stand up and be accountable.””

I truly believe that if parole boards were responsible in someway for the crimes those they release committed. We’d have far less violent crime in this nation.

Oops he didn’t have to serve his two sentence consectutively. Remind me, if I am ever sentenced. I want a 1 week sentence. Followed by whatever ever other sentence….because then I won’t have to serve it consecutively.  Seriously?

How New York elections are won…. “BRIBERY”

(Remember, a scandal is nothing more than a politicians normal daily activities revealed to the public.)

Mandotory Gun Checks – no, not background checks. 
But Nelson, Georgia has passed a law requiring that all its citizens be armed (or at least the heads of household).

[Note it bears no penalties, and exempts felons, handicapped (physical or mental), and anyone who objects.]

Chicago homicides plumet (28% drop in the past six months)
http://news.yahoo.com/march-homicides-drop-dramatically-chicago-003154243.html

Question, is this due to?

a) When you’re as high as Chicago’s homicide rate, it’s hard to maintain that reputation consistently. Even Chicago’s gonna have a down quarter or two.

b) A change in how Chicago reports homicides… (“woman over there says it was a drive by,…mark it as a suicide recruit”)

c) McDonald vs Chicago – hey criminals, Chicago residents may be armed now…

d) Winter…burr…even the criminals stayed in doors this winter.

UN(american) approves first global arms trade treaty

“first treaty on global arms trade that seeks to regulate the $70 billion international business in conventional arms, ranging from light weapons to battle tanks and warships.”

“The main reason the arms trade talks took place at all is that the United States, the world’s biggest arms trader, reversed U.S. policy on the issue after President Barack Obama was first elected and decided in 2009 to support a treaty.”

Yes, the election of President Obama does jeopardize our freedoms.

“Its specific language recognizes the “legitimate trade and lawful ownership, and use of certain conventional arms for recreational, cultural, historical and sporting activities.”

But not “self-defense”, no recognition of that right. The NRA is right to object to this treaty.

Scroll down to the “Gun Laws Around the World” – there is NO PLACE like America.

Improbable Cause

Couple growing some tomatoes and such using an indoor hydroponics system finds themselves the victim of a SWAT raid. Turns out the couple was already well vetted by the Federal government, having worked prior for the CIA and having undergone an extensive background check. 

“During the sweep, the court filing said, the Hartes were told they had been under surveillance for months, but the couple “know of no basis for conducting such surveillance nor do they believe such surveillance would have produced any facts supporting the issuance of a search warrant.””

Isn’t this ALWAYS the case with this “mis-raids”, the individuals are supposedly under surveillance for month.  Seriously HOW !@#$% DUMB ARE OUR POLICE GETTING IF THEY CAN SPEND MONTHS OBSERVING AND NOT GET IT RIGHT!!!!  I know some good officers, please tell me WHAT is going on in the police hiring these days that these are the results we’re seeing as of late.

That Constitution thing, yes, that historical document. Does it have ANY meaning at all today? Our government is sending SWAT teams without cause, Federal government is listening to all our phone calls, reading all of our emails. Okay with drone assasinations of U.S. citizens, apparently on U.S. soil before Senator Rand Paul raised a fuss.
