Cop cleared in shooting of unarmed man

Two sets of laws. One set for the police, and another for the rest of us. If any of us, for any reason shot another person who was unarmed, we would be spending time in prison, no questions asked.

In this case, state police tried to stop Raymond Snyder of Kingston, NY for having a loud muffler. For some reason, and quite foolishly I might add, he chose not to stop for the Trooper. But the 28 year-old was not a fugitive and his reason for running is still not clear.

Moments later he was cut off by a Sheriff's vehicle, and took off on foot around the back of a house where he was shot by Deputy James Mullen. Initial reports were that there had been a struggle. In the most recent report the shooting is "justified" by the explanation that the suspect "reached" for something in his waistband. Well, for all we know he may have been trying to pull his pants up. What we do know though, is that the suspect had no weapon, and ultimately was shot for having a loud muffler.

The deputy has been cleared of all wrongdoing.

Here are a few articles on the case:

Reds rise again: Military menace of China?

Hope ya like eggrolls!

In this first video we will see confirmation of China's next-generation fighter, the Chengdu J-20. Though information is limited, it is believed to be superior to our F-22 Raptor in many ways. Though the raptor has the edge in maneuverability, in today's aerial battlefield that really only comes down to the very last line of defense for a pilot. The J-20 appears to have the edge in speed, range, and payload. The payload advantage means not only that it can hold more munitions, but also more sophisticated weapons, and even superior electronics options that will increase the survivability of the platform. Range would also be a distinct advantage in an engagement such as over the Strait of Taiwan, as our refueling tankers are not stealth. Feast your eyes now upon the "Black Dragon..."

Yeah, but that's just one weapon system right? Now granted, air power is the key to any modern military campaign, but it still comes down to boots on the ground right? Especially if China ever planned to beat the US in an outright brawl. Well, let's see how China rolls...

Hmmm, not too cool China. I'm not liking General Tso's chicken so much now. As if that weren't enough to ruffle your western Eagle feathers. Try this on for size. China doesn't even have to send men to win a war with the United States. Their women alone could kick our asses.

Population of the United States: 307,006,550, Chinese Women's army: 350,991,416

Maybe they will sing for us, and serve us watermelon...

...One flesh one bone
One true religion
One voice one hope
One real decision

Gimme one light, yeah
Gimme one hope, hey
Just gimme, ah
One man one man
One bar one night
One day hey hey
Just gimme gimme gimme gimme


Why does the Department of Education need a SWAT team?

Here is an excerpt from an excellent article regarding the heavy-handed tactics of paramilitary units in America today...

For example, it was heavily armed agents from one such OIG office, working under the auspices of the Department of Education, who forced their way into the home of a California man, handcuffed him, and placed his three children (ages 3, 7, and 11) in a squad car while they conducted a search of his home. This federal SWAT team raid, which is essentially what it was, on the home of Anthony Wright on Tuesday, June 7, 2011, was allegedly intended to ferret out information on Wright’s estranged wife, Michelle, who no longer lives with him and who was suspected of financial aid fraud (early news reports characterized the purpose of the raid as being over Michelle’s delinquent student loans). According to Wright, he was awakened at 6 am by the sound of agents battering down his door and, upon descending the stairs, was immediately subdued by police. One neighbor actually witnessed the team of armed agents surround the house and, after forcing entry, they "dragged [Wright] out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him."

Facebook blocks news: Undeclared Israeli Nuclear Weapons

Interestingly, when I tried to post this story on Facebook, I found that it had been flagged and blocked. Facebook will not allow me to post a link directly to the story. So I am going to go ahead and copy a portion of the article here and a link to the source to get around the censors.

This may be old news to those of us who frequent conspiracy boards and so forth, but not many people really know about this. Have a look...

Undeclared Israeli Nuclear Weapons: CIA Knew In 1974 That Israel Had Nuclear Weapons

Much attention has been placed on Iran and their supposed nuclear weapons program by the United States and Israel.

What isn’t talked about on a regular basis in the corporate controlled media is the fact that Israel has an illegal, undeclared nuclear arsenal.

While many are already aware of the facts regarding the Israeli Nuclear Program, there is an absurd amount of people who still pretend Israel is a sitting duck surrounded by powerful enemies.

The reality is that our government knew, as far back as 1974, that Israel most likely possessed nuclear weapons.

Inmate confesses to shooting Tupac Shakur in NY

This is the shooting that happened a little less than two years before Tupac was fatally wounded after the Tyson fight in Las Vegas, while riding in a car with Suge Knight. You can read more about Tupac on Wikipedia.

According to a statement given by convict Dexter Isaac, he shot and robbed Tupac at Quad Studios in Manhattan at the behest of rap mogul James "Jimmy Henchman" Richmond. He also implies that Sean "Puffy" Combs knew about the orders. Isaac is currently serving a life sentence on unrelated charges. Rosemond, who is CEO of Czar Entertainment which manages performers such as The Game and Sean Kingston, is currently a fugitive from justice wanted by the DEA and federal marshals in connection with his alleged leadership of a cocaine trafficking ring.

The inmate's confessional statement reads:

My name is Dexter Isaac. On Monday, May 23, 2011, James Rosemond released a statement in which he named myself and another individual, a Mr. Winston Harris (who I do not know), as government informants. I would like to clear the record on that statement: I have never been a rat for anybody and I do not have any deals nor was I made any promises by any government agency for information on Mr. Rosemond. Mr. Rosemond has crucified good reporters like Chuck Philips, at the LA Times, and Alison Gendar, at the Daily News, for telling the truth about him and his activities. He claims they had no proof that he was a rat for the government, which is an outright lie, because Mr. Rosemond, you signed a proffer agreement with the U.S. Attorney's office in New York on 10-20-1998. Mr. Rosemond, I have copies of your presentence report from North Carolina dated 1-13-1997 and other documents about you working with the government sending people you befriended to prison so you can maintain your own freedom. I have met with individuals on whom Mr. Rosemond has told.

Jimmy, I say to you: I have kept your secrets for years. You have never been arrested because of me, or anyone of our friends because of me. How dare you call me an informant! I have stayed silent in prison for the past 13 years, doing a life sentence like a real soldier should, when you and everybody have turned your backs on me. I have never gotten any help nor asked for any help from you or anyone since being locked up.

As a matter of fact, when I was first notified a couple years ago that the feds and Chuck Philips were investigating you, I wrote you and sent you everything they sent me. I kept it real with you because that's what real G's do. Anyway, that was before I found out that you were, in fact, already a turncoat rat for the government. Mr. Rosemond, if I was an informant like you, I would've been home years ago with my family, not doing life in prison.

Now I would like to clear up a few things, because the statute of limitations is over, and no one can be charged, and I'm just plain tired of listening to your lies.

In 1994, James Rosemond hired me to rob 2Pac Shakur at the Quad Studio. He gave me $2,500, plus all the jewelry I took, except for one ring, which he wanted for himself. It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took. He said he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Cynthia Ried. I still have as proof the chain that we took that night in the robbery.

Now I'm not going to talk about my friend Biggie's death or 2Pac's death, but I would like to give their mothers some closure. It's about time that some one did, and I will do so at a different time. Jimmy, you and Puffy like to come off all innocent-like, but as the saying goes: You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

Mr. Rosemond, I ask you: Are you going to flip on Puffy when the feds get you? To save yourself like you have done in the past? Because that's what a rat does. So in closing, we shall see who the rat is, in the near future.

If anyone has any questions regarding these statement or just want to be a friend to a real Soldier fighting for his freedom in prison feel free to write me at:

Fed Res misplaces $9 TRILLION, public suffers 2 million fewer jobs

1.9 Million Fewer Americans Have Jobs Today Than When Obama Signed Stimulus

(CNSNews.com) – Twenty-eight months after Congress passed President Obama’s signature economic stimulus law, and nearly one year after he declared the summer of 2010 to be “Recovery Summer,” 1.9 million fewer people are employed.

In February 2009, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that 141.7 million people were employed. By the end of May 2011 – the last month for which data are available – that number had fallen to 139.8 million, a difference of 1.9 million.


9 TRILLION Dollars Missing from Federal Reserve

Rep. Alan Grayson asks the Federal Reserve Inspector General about the trillions of dollars lent or spent by the Federal Reserve and where it went, and the trillions of off balance sheet obligations. Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman responds that the IG does not know and is not tracking where this money is.

U.S. Taxpayers Risk $9.7 Trillion on Bailout Programs

Feb. 9 (Bloomberg) -- The stimulus package the U.S. Congress is completing would raise the government’s commitment to solving the financial crisis to $9.7 trillion, enough to pay off more than 90 percent of the nation’s home mortgages.

The Federal Reserve, Treasury Department and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation have lent or spent almost $3 trillion over the past two years and pledged up to $5.7 trillion more. The Senate is to vote this week on an economic-stimulus measure of at least $780 billion. It would need to be reconciled with an $819 billion plan the House approved last month.

Only the stimulus bill to be approved this week, the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program passed four months ago and $168 billion in tax cuts and rebates enacted in 2008 have been voted on by lawmakers. The remaining $8 trillion is in lending programs and guarantees, almost all under the Fed and FDIC. Recipients’ names have not been disclosed.

“We’ve seen money go out the back door of this government unlike any time in the history of our country,” Senator Byron Dorgan, a North Dakota Democrat, said on the Senate floor Feb. 3. “Nobody knows what went out of the Federal Reserve Board, to whom and for what purpose. How much from the FDIC? How much from TARP? When? Why?”


For those of you who are not entirely sure what all of this means, we should start by pointing out the elephant in the room. The Federal Reserve Bank is not part of the Federal government. They are a privately owned bank, no more Federal than FedEx. They have no obligation whatsoever to the will or the interests of the voter despite the fact that they dominate every facet of our financial lives. Now it is true, that the Federal government has imposed some token oversight of Fed Res Bank. The person in charge of that oversight is that lady you just saw in the video who had no flipping clue where $9 TRILLION of your tax dollars have gone.

If all this economic stuff confuses you in any way, I cannot impress upon you enough how important it is to understand how the economy actually works. You will be shocked to learn how simple it really is actually. Forget the big fancy words and complex mathematical principals. In the video linked below, you will learn in 47 minutes what most economic students never learned in years of advanced study. I mean it, watch the video, and then ask yourself why you never saw this video in high school...

Vampire Economics

Worried about the economy? Dollars not going as far as they used to? Well, you're certainly not alone in your sentiments. Yet everyone seems to have an explanation, or a reason why it is like this, often blaming their neighbors for the economic woes of the world, rather than the folks who operate a terminally flawed economic system. Don't expect things to get better anytime soon. Under our current economic structure, collapse is a mathematical certainty. When exactly it will happen, and how the collapse will be managed are anyone's guess. But who will benefit? The very few who implemented this system, and no one else. Even if you are still comfortable, and not really feeling the economic pinch yet, have no fear, the check is in the mail. You are not immune from the woes that others are feeling now through little fault of their own.

If you think you understand how the economy works, think again. Very few people actually do, so don't be ashamed, and don't be blinded by arrogance thinking that you are special and that you actually do know better than most people. We all think that. Sure, you may have taken a few economics classes in school, but you were never taught the bare-bones truth of how our economy works. So please, take the next 47 minutes to watch the following video. It affects each and every last one of us. You might very well agree that this is hands down the single most important and eye-opening educational video of our time.


Arizona officer faces charges after killing suspect and family dog

My first impression was that this is a tragedy, but that if the officer in question felt threatened that the shooting may have indeed been justified. I am also surprised that this officer is facing charges so quickly after the incident, rather than the public being given the routine "It's under investigation" line while the officer is placed on paid leave.

I know I do a lot of "police-bashing" here, but that doesn't mean that I let my own personal bias get in the way of the facts. And the facts are that the officer did not need a warrant, for two reasons. First, he had probable cause because a disturbance had been reported. The mother of the victim had called police after having an argument in the home with her son. But more importantly, not only were police called but she also gave permission for police to enter the home. No warrant is necessary when there is probable cause or permission from a resident.

So understanding those facts will give the officer in question a strong defense. Telling the suspect, "I don't need no warrant motherfucker" may seem a bit vulgar, maybe a bit unprofessional, but nevertheless his statement was correct. He did not need a warrant to be in the home. It should also be noted here for the layman, that police do not need a warrant to detain you and slap the cuffs on for the purposes of investigation. Even if there was no reason for you to be arrested, even if you have committed no crime, you are committing a crime by resiting arrest. Therefore, if the suspect/victim resisted, he was in violation of the law and police had every right to use whatever reasonable force at their disposal to bring the suspect into custody.

What is reasonable force? Most departments use some version of what is called the Use-of-Force-Continuum. This basically means that increasing resistance will be met by increased use of force by police, up to and including the use of lethal weapons and tactics.

So understanding this, we must look more closely as to what actually developed inside the house to determine what force may have been warranted. We know that two officers entered the home. We know that the subject they met in the home was combative, but unarmed. We do not know at what point or for what reason the officer in question drew his firearm and put it to the subject's head, but we do know that the man was tased twice before being fatally wounded. We know too that the officer had to contend with a dog in the house. We do not know the breed of the dog or how ferocious it might have been, but the dog was also shot dead in the melee.

In some jurisdictions, a person's dog can be considered a deadly weapon and/or potentially lethal threat. Justifiably so in my opinion. So, if the subject loosed a dog on the officers, that act may have been seen as an "assault with a deadly weapon." If the dog was simply loose in the house, then that would be less of a justification for the shooting of the suspect even of the shooting of the dog was justified.

I know that dog-lover's are screaming holy hell right now, but try not to be baited by emotional appeal. Oh, the poor doggie got shot for no reason. If the dog was a threat, then yes there was a reason. As we have already established, the police had every right to be in the home and to protect themselves from harm.

Back to the primary shooting now though. At what point did the officer actually kill the subject? As we have said, the person was combative and resisting a lawful arrest. The officer's had already applied non-lethal force to subdue the subject. Can lethal force be justifiably used against an unarmed person? Generally, most folks might answer that it is not justified to shoot an unarmed person under any circumstances, but that is not really the truth.

State and local laws have varying degrees of "reason" to shoot someone, but generally speaking if you as a police officer, or as a civilian carrying a firearm legally, feel that someone is creating an imminent threat of death or serious bodily injury, you have the right to shoot them. If the person in question is armed it may be easier to justify that determination, but that does not mean that an unarmed person is never a potentially deadly threat.

More to the point, attacking a person who is clearly armed in an open-carry fashion may well indeed constitute a potentially deadly threat, justifying lethal use of force. If you start wrestling with a police officer, and the officer feels that they are being overpowered and may lose the fight, they can kill you. Even if you had no intention of killing the officer or anyone else, even if you did not reach for the gun, an officer might reasonably conclude that if you overpower them physically, you will also gain control of their weapon. An officer has not only a right, but a duty to use whatever means necessary in order to keep his weapon out of the hands of a violent suspect.

What complicates that logic in this case, is that there were two officers at the scene. The primary officer did not necessarily have to use lethal force as the second officer was also there to protect him should the suspect actually overpower the first officer and make an attempt to grab that officer's firearm. Given the fluid dynamics of a violent altercation however, it is not for us to make that determination. We really cannot know without getting into extremely specific blow-by-blow moves and counter-moves that took place in a matter of seconds. And split-second decisions can be justified even if the end result turns out to be less favorable in retrospect.

Since we weren't there it may be impossible for us to ever know if the shooting was truly justified. It certainly seems to me though, that this case is not quite as clear-cut as other cases where a police shooting was blatantly unjustified and yet nothing was ever done about it. So what is different about this case? Why was he so quickly charged with aggravated assault, and now likely to face a murder charge as a result? Why the sudden and unprecedented accountability that is unheard of in cases like these?

Now forgive my cynicism here, but it would almost seem as if this officer had been set up to take a fall for some reason. That he stepped on the wrong toes somewhere along that line and is being deliberately left hung out to dry by his department, his brethren, presumably even his partner at the scene who's statements must have in some way justified these charges. Is this officer a sacrificial lamb of sorts? Is he being undermined and broken down, because of something even more sinister that he may know about? Something that maybe he was going to blow the whistle on?

Even the PBA spokesperson in the interview was not making a very convincing defense of the officer. The whole video just felt as if everyone is really out to lynch this guy in a shooting that is not at all as clear-cut as one would expect to get this sort of reaction.

As a side note though, I can't resist firing back at one comment the PBA guy made, saying that we all have rights and due process. Yup, uh huh. So we are told. Too bad cops didn't get the memo.

(Admin note: This will also be labeled under the "good cops" heading, going by the assumption that the second officer at the scene may have revealed an unjustified shooting. Short of that it is important too to note that not all police shootings are crimes against humanity and this article tries to show how a shooting may be indeed be justified even against our more simple sensibilities as civilians.)

Goodyear blimp bursts into flames, plunges to Earth, pilot killed

Investigators were today piecing together the last moments before a a Goodyear blimp burst into flames and plunged to earth in a weekend crash in Germany.

The pilot, Michael Nerandzic, 53, was killed but three passengers managed to jump to safety when the airship caught fire as it was coming in to land at the Reichelsheim aerodrome near Friedberg.

When the airship was just two metres from the floor, Mr Nerandzic told his passengers, all journalists, to jump to the ground while he tried to land safely.

But once the three had leapt clear, the sudden loss of weight caused the blimp to soar skywards and burst into flames before crashing to the earth in a chilling echo of the Hindenburg disaster.

Former Detective Lieutenant faces 13-count indictment

This comes out of Kingston, New York. A little city north of NYC along the Hudson. The former top cop faces a 13-count indictment alleging that he stole from a high school where he moonlighted as a security guard, charging the district for hours he never worked. It is also alleged that he stole from the Ulster Savings Bank, committed fraud, falsified business records, and even stole from the evidence locker that he had sole access to while working as a member of the Ulster County Regional Gang Enforcement Narcotics Team.

KINGSTON — Former City of Kingston Detective Lt. Timothy Matthews faces 13 charges, including the theft of more than $200,000 from Ulster County and the City of Kingston.

An Ulster County grand jury handed up the indictments Monday.

"The indictment charges Timothy Matthews with two counts of grand larceny in the second degree, alleging that he stole more than $50,000 from the City of Kingston," Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright said at a news conference. "The amount actually totaled over $130,000."

Carnright said Matthews is alleged to have stolen more than $79,000 from Ulster County while working as a member of the Ulster County Regional Gang Enforcement Narcotics Team.

Why can't you see Israel on Google-Earth?

Since Google launched its Google Earth feature in 2005, the company has become a worldwide leader in providing high-resolution satellite imagery. In 2010, Google Earth allowed the world to see the extent of the destruction in post-earthquake Haiti. This year, Google released similar images after Japan's deadly tsunami and earthquake. With just one click, Google can bring the world—and a better understanding of far-away events—to your computer.

There is one entire country, however, that Google Earth won't show you: Israel.
That's because, in 1997, Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act, one section of which is titled, "Prohibition on collection and release of detailed satellite imagery relating to Israel." The amendment, known as the Kyl-Bingaman Amendment, calls for a federal agency, the NOAA's Commercial Remote Sensing Regulatory Affairs, to regulate the dissemination of zoomed-in images of Israel.

Second Amendment vs Mandatory Sentencing

This story comes to us out of Florida. There, a man has been sentenced to spend the next 20 years in prison for pulling out a gun and discharging it when he was menaced by a violent teenager in the man's own home. Here is a brief account of the event taken from a law professor's blog...

On a spring morning in 2008, Wollard got a panicked call from his wife. The teenage boyfriend who had been beating up his 15-year old daughter was back at their house causing trouble. Wollard rushed home and found the boy on the porch and his daughter with a black eye. Wollard told the boy to leave, but instead, the boy attacked him, ripping out stitches from Wollard’s recent surgery, and then ran off with Wollard’s daughter. When the two returned several hours later, the boyfriend began shoving Orville’s daughter around the Wollards’ home. Wollard’s wife and eldest daughter screamed for him to do something. Wollard was frightened for his daughter’s and his family’s safety.

He grabbed his legally registered pistol and confronted the boy, again asking him to leave. The boy stopped assaulting Wollard’s daughter. He smiled, punched a hole in the wall, and began moving toward Wollard. Wollard, who had had firearms training as a former member of the auxiliary police force, aimed a bullet into the wall next to the boyfriend to scare him. No one was hurt, and the boy finally left. That is where this story should have ended, but it didn’t.


Weeks later, the abusive teen boyfriend called police and reported that he had been the victim of an assault. Mister Wollard was arrested, and believing he had done nothing wrong, rejected a plea deal that would have left him with only a sentence of probation but also with a felony record. A felony record which would prevent him from owning a firearm for the rest of his life, stripping him of his Constitutionally protected right to bear arms, and his right to protect his family.

That right has been reaffirmed in a number of cases by the U.S. Supreme Court over the years, and re-affirmed by the state of Florida when they adopted a "castle doctrine" in 2005.

The Florida "Castle Doctrine" law basically does three things:

One: It establishes, in law, the presumption that a criminal who forcibly enters or intrudes into your home or occupied vehicle is there to cause death or great bodily harm, therefore a person may use any manner of force, including deadly force, against that person.

Two: It removes the "duty to retreat" if you are attacked in any place you have a right to be. You no longer have to turn your back on a criminal and try to run when attacked. Instead, you may stand your ground and fight back, meeting force with force, including deadly force, if you reasonably believe it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to yourself or others. [This is an American right repeatedly recognized in
Supreme Court gun cases.]

Three: It provides that persons using force authorized by law shall not be prosecuted for using such force.

It also prohibits criminals and their families from suing victims for injuring or killing the criminals who have attacked them.

In short, it gives rights back to law-abiding people and forces judges and prosecutors who are prone to coddling criminals to instead focus on protecting victims.

Which makes it all the more surprising that this man was convicted of anything, much less convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison, living in a state which ostensibly recognizes one's right to defend themselves and their family. I can't imagine how bad it might have been if this had gone down in NY. But, this case is bad enough, as it turns out, for freedom-loving law-abiding citizens with a verboten human instinct to protect their families.

Prosecutors charged Mister Wollard with:

Shooting into a dwelling, which was his own home.
Child abuse, because the alleged victim was under 18.
Aggravated Assault with a weapon.

When the jury convicted Wollard of possessing and discharging a firearm, a mandatory sentencing regulation kicked in under Florida state law. A typical right-wing "get tough on crime" law just came home to roost. The judge had no choice but to sentence Wollard to a mandatory 20 years in prison without the possibility of parole.

Wollard told the court...

“I’m amazed. I’m stunned. I have spent my life pursuing education [and] helped the community. [T]hen one day this person breaks into my house … he continues to do this, he assaults my daughter, he threatens me, I protect myself. [N]o one is injured in this whole thing, and I’m going to prison. … And again, with all respect to [the court], I would expect this from the former Soviet Union, not the United States.”

Frankly, the only thing I can see that the man did wrong was to not shoot and kill the attacker. Most gun-owners will tell you that you never pull a gun unless you have every intention of using it. It's not a tool to scare off an intruder, to threaten, to make a show, or to "wing" someone with a shot in the leg. You pull a gun on a person because your life is in danger, you shoot to kill, no questions asked.

Mister Wollard has now served two years and a day of his penitentiary sentence... for shooting a wall in his house.

Riddle of the missing dollar

Three people decide to get a hotel room. The room costs $30. Each chips in $10, they pay the clerk, and head up to room 310.

The manager reviews the transaction and sees that en error has been made. The clerk forgot to give the $5 rebate that was advertised as the Tuesday special.

The manager opens the cash drawer and pulls out 5 one dollar bills. He hands them to the clerk and says, "Bring this money up to room three-ten and apologize for the mistake."

In the elevator on the way up, the clerk figures that no one will know if he decides to keep a few bucks for himself. So, he puts two dollars in his pocket and keeps only three singles in his hand.

When the guests open their room door, the clerk apologizes and tells them that he forgot to apply a rebate special to their bill. Each of the three guests receives one single dollar bill, bringing their individual cost down to $9 each for the room.

Now, if each person paid $9 for the room, that is a total of $27 for the cost of the room after receiving their portion of the rebate.

If you then add the portion of the rebate in the clerk's pocket to the $27 you reach a total of $29. But the total cost of the room was originally $30.

Where did the other dollar go?!

Top 10 Hidden Images Found In Cartoons

Everyone loves cartoons – both children and adults. There is always a temptation by a cartoonist to slip in a bit of something extra – something only they are aware of, but thanks to scores of teenaged boys with a pause button and too much time on their hands, we are all able to see these little in-jokes. Unfortunately for companies like Disney, some of them are a little on the naughty side and they have been the root of legal battles. Here is a list of 10 naughty moments found in cartoons.

Now of course, we as adults have come to equate clowns with pervs and serial killers, but maybe it's not fair to draw those conclusions for a kid's show. Maybe we need something a little more blatant to get the point across here. How about a group of kids screaming and shouting to a song about the female orgasm?

Well, if that doesn't just about say it all. But in case you weren't sickened enough, how about a little black on white male rape...?

So, now I ask you dear reader, what is wrong with this picture? And...

Killer cop released after less than a year

(06-13) 08:52 PDT LOS ANGELES --

Former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle was released from a Los Angeles jail early today after completing his time for involuntary manslaughter for fatally shooting an unarmed passenger on New Year's Day 2009.

E-mail and phone notifications made at 12:01 a.m. today said Mehserle had been released, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's online inmate locator also said he had been freed.

Officials have declined to discuss specifics about Mehserle's release.

Mehserle, 29, was sentenced to two years for shooting Oscar Grant in the back while the 22-year-old Hayward man lay face down on the platform at Oakland's Fruitvale BART Station after being pulled from a train.

Bipolar kids: Victims of the 'madness industry'?

Another of many articles I have come across over the years showing how big pharmaceutical companies are pumping our kids full of all sorts of drugs whether the kids really need them or not. In most cases it appears, they do not need these dangerous and damaging chemicals...

THERE'S a children's picture book in the US called Brandon and the Bipolar Bear. Brandon and his bear sometimes fly into unprovoked rages. Sometimes they're silly and overexcited. A nice doctor tells them they are ill, and gives them medicine that makes them feel much better.

The thing is, if Brandon were a real child, he would have just been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Also known as manic depression, this serious condition, involving dramatic mood swings, is increasingly being recorded in American children. And a vast number of them are being medicated for it.

The problem is, this apparent epidemic isn't real. "Bipolar emerges from late adolescence," says Ian Goodyer, a professor in the department of psychiatry at the University of Cambridge who studies child and adolescent depression. "It is very, very unlikely indeed that you'll find it in children under 7 years."


"There's a societal push for conformity in all ways," he said. "There's less tolerance of difference. Maybe for some people having a label confers a sense of hope - previously I was laughed at but now I can talk to fellow sufferers on the internet."


On the night of 13 December 2006, in Boston, Massachusetts, 4-year-old Rebecca Riley had a cold and couldn't sleep. Her mother, Carolyn Riley, gave her some cold medicine, and some of her bipolar medication, and told her she could sleep on the floor next to the bed. When she tried to wake Rebecca the next morning, she discovered her daughter was dead.

The autopsy revealed that Rebecca's parents had given her an overdose of the antipsychotic drugs she had been prescribed for her bipolar disorder. They had got into the habit of feeding her the medicines to shut her up when she was being annoying. They were both convicted of Rebecca's murder.

Rebecca had been diagnosed as bipolar at 2-and-a-half, and given medication by an upstanding psychiatrist who was a fan of Biederman's research into childhood bipolar. Rebecca had scored high on the DSM checklist, even though like most toddlers she could barely string a sentence together.

Shortly before her trial, Carolyn Riley was interviewed on CBS's 60 Minutes show by Katie Couric:

KC: Do you think Rebecca really had bipolar disorder?

CR: Probably not.

KC: What do you think was wrong with her now?

CR: I don't know. Maybe she was just hyper for her age.
