Two Men Vanish While in Officer's Custody

This is why it is so dangerous to give police so much power, without any accountability. Why should we blindly trust the police in any given situation, when things like this can happen? Now granted, not every cop is a murderer. But that is still no reason to give police a blank check to do whatever they want, whenever they want, to the detriment of public safety. You will notice too, that this story is just coming out now, almost ten years after the fact.


Does Kidnapping Make Schools Safer?

Kids All Over America Are Being Put On Buses And Sent To Alternate Locations During School Terror Drills

All over the United States, school children are being taken out of their classrooms, put on buses and sent to "alternate locations" during terror drills.  These exercises are often called "evacuation drills" or "relocation drills" and they are more than a little disturbing.  Sometimes parents are notified in advance where the kids are being taken and sometimes they are only told that the children are being taken to an "undisclosed location".  In the years since 9/11 and the Columbine school shootings, there has been a concerted effort to make school emergency drills much more "realistic" and much more intense.    Unfortunately, the fact that many of these drills are deeply traumatizing many children does not seem to bother too many people.  Do we really need to have "active shooter" drills where men point guns at our kids and fire blanks at them?  Do we really need to have "relocation drills" where kids are rapidly herded on to buses and told that they must surrender their cell phones because they will not be allowed to call anyone?  Our schools more closely resemble prison camps every single day, and it is our children that are suffering because of it.

Newburgh, Murder Capitol of NY

Welcome to Newburgh, Murder Capital of New York 

This tiny city has a crime epidemic reminiscent of the Bronx of the seventies. It is also the scene of some of the most ambitious gang raids ever conducted, led by an FBI agent who knows the young men he’s arresting only too well. 

One morning earlier this month, just before sunrise, a silent convoy of SUVs streamed into the tiny, troubled city of Newburgh, New York. Over 200 law-­enforcement officers descended on the blighted heart of town, and a company of military-style commandos prepared for a synchronized raid. Armed with M4 assault rifles and dressed in helmets, goggles, and green fatigues, SWAT teams burst into a series of dilapidated houses, shouting, “FBI! Get down!” 

Stop and frisk dawg!
By late morning, twelve alleged members of the Bloods street gang were in ­federal custody. Along with eight others who were already behind bars, the young men were charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery, ­assault, possession of firearms, and conspiracy to distribute drugs. It was the third major sweep by federal authorities in ­Newburgh over the past sixteen months. At a press conference, Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said that the raid was designed to ­“restore the rule of law” in the impoverished city, where violent street gangs “have held the good citizens of Newburgh ­hostage for too long.” 

Beautifully situated on a picturesque bend in the Hudson about a 90 minutes’ drive north of New York City, Newburgh does not look, from a distance, like a community mired in High Noon levels of lawlessness. But in actuality, it has less in common with bohemian Beacon, just across the river (“Williamsburg on the Hudson,” as the Times recently anointed it), than it does with, say, West Baltimore. Despite its small size and bucolic setting, Newburgh occupies one of the most dangerous four-mile stretches in the northeastern United States. “There are reports of shootouts in the town streets, strings of robberies, and gang assaults with machetes,” an alarmed Chuck Schumer said in a Senate hearing last year, describing the situation in Newburgh as “shocking.” With a higher rate of violent crime per capita than the South Bronx or Brownsville, little Newburgh, population 29,000, is the murder capital of New York State.

With sister city Poughkeepsie rated as #6 top cities in the country to raise a family, it is hard to imagine that just a short hop down the river you could wind up in the epitome of ghetto life in America. At one time, back in the early 90's, Poughkeepsie also wore this dubious crown of being the most fatal stretch of urban blight in a state famous for its urban nightmares. We were even graced with our very own homegrown serial killer.

We are not without our troubles still today, but since then, "PoTown" has seen significant recovery and development of its urban terrain, in particular in the trouble hot-spots such as the waterfront and downtown Main Street. For whatever reason, Newburgh did not follow suit, and instead has now been sucked into the depths of misery reminiscent of the 90's crack epidemic which spread across NYC and urban centers across the state and nation.

There is no simple solution either. While police swarm the neighborhoods in true Gestapo fashion, many of the citizens who live there see the police as a force every much as oppressive as the gangbangers who battle for control of the streets.  

Hundreds March on City Hall in Wake of Fatal Police Shooting in Newburgh

Sadly, Newburgh now represents so much of what is wrong with our nation. Narco-gangsters spawned or imported as the result of social disintegration and a lack of meaningful opportunity, juxtaposed against the stormtroopers who defend the very system which created the conditions in the first place.

What a miserable state of affairs, for all involved. The sh*t had to land somewhere though. With gangsters and cops alike feeling so utterly hopeless in their endeavors, and murder their only unity.

DISCLOSURE: Life on Mars Discovered in 1976, Top Scientists Say

There have been other events and straightforward scientific data to support the notion that there is life beyond Earth, but for the most part, this information is not readily accepted by mainstream science or the general public. This might change that...

New analysis of 36-year-old data, resuscitated from printouts, shows that NASA found life on Mars, an international team of mathematicians and scientists conclude in a paper published this week. 

Further, NASA doesn't need a human expedition to Mars to nail down the claim, neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller, with the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, told Discovery News.

Zimmerman a Pedophile? (EXCLUSIVE REPORT!)

Seminole County, Florida - With the discovery today of sexually explicit material in a Florida storage unit, some officials are speaking off the record about their suspicions that George Zimmerman may have wanted to have sex with Trayvon Martin.

"Being a neighborhood watch captain puts one in a unique position to be able to prowl for victims," one official tells us. "Given the nature of the material we found in this storage unit, I would say it is quite possible that he was on the prowl for young black males."

Inside the storage unit believed to have once been rented by George Zimmerman, were sexually explicit DVD's depicting various grades of fetish filth. But perhaps most alarming was one title, "Black Anal Fisting #55" in which actors even engaged in toilet plumbing hardware fetish acts. Most of the actors in the film were of African-American descent, leading some to wonder why a white man would have black porn in his storage unit.

A spokesman for the company who operates the storage unit facility stopped short of confirming that George Zimmerman actually rented this particular unit, but did confirm that, "He has rented from us in the past, we can verify that with surveillance video taken in the office."

While none of the pornography uncovered is explicitly illegal, another police official had this to say: "Given the disturbing nature of the material uncovered here, it is not a stretch of the imagination at all to assume that someone who would watch this, would prey on young black children for sexual gratification."

A Trayvon Martin supporter shares their own opinion of the discovery saying, "It never made sense to me until now. Why else would Zimmerman have bothered to take notice of a stranger walking around his neighborhood in the rain staring at houses? I mean, after all, he had his hood up, it's not like he was going to get very wet. I think when the truth comes out at trial, we will find that this white guy just had a thing for black kids."

A Zimmerman supporter tried to deflect blame though, telling us, "You can hardly blame him if that's the case. He probably saw the Skittles pack in Trayvon's hand, and took that as a sign that he was willing to share gay sex, maybe for more goodies at the corner store. I think it was irresponsible of him to flash his Skittles at strangers in traffic."

Stay tuned for more updates.


Murder Charge in Zimmerman/Martin Case

Once again our justice system shows what a failure it is to render justice. Whether or not you personally believe that George Zimmerman is criminally responsible for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, it has become clear now that our government is a complete failure when it comes to bringing justice to the people in a Constitutional manner as prescribed by the Founding Fathers of this nation. We also see the wickedness of corporate news and mainstream social media when it comes to fabrication of lies and inflaming a genuine tragedy.

A charge of Murder in the Second Degree has been brought against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The charge has been filed at the sole discretion of special prosecutor Angela Corey, rather than trough the findings of a grand-jury indictment. Such a maneuver is allowed under Florida law, but it certainly does not instill one with any faith in the objectivity of the prosecutor despite her claim that they "...do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition."

Quite obviously she is, well, mistaken we'll call it. If it were not for public pressure or petition, she would not have even been assigned to this case to begin with. The police investigation failed to uncover enough evidence to support even a charge of manslaughter, much less the much more serious charge of murder. The police had originally recommended to the local prosecutor that the neighborhood-watch captain be charged with manslaughter, despite the fact that the physical evidence and witness statements corroborated his claim of self-defense. So what new evidence has this special prosecutor uncovered that the police and local district attorney did not? Obviously she is not saying now, but instead stated, "That's why we try cases in court." Frankly, that much I do agree with too. It's a travesty that this case has been tried in the media already from the start. Given the amount of lies spun about this case and pressure to lynch the shooter at this point, it is hard to imagine that there is even much hope for a fair trial at all at this point. Which of course goes right back to why this matter is being handled by a special prosecutor in the first place.

She claims that she has enough evidence to not only prove that Zimmerman should have known better than to shoot Martin, but that he was in fact cognizant that doing so would be a crime. That he did not just act in a negligent manner which caused the teen's death, but that he willfully and intentionally killed the boy knowing unambiguously that what he was doing was wrong. That he flat out lied about defending himself and killed the teen in cold blood, on a whim, without any planning or forethought. If such evidence is to be believed, then we must also accept that the local police and prosecutor are woefully inept at their jobs at the very least, or that they intentionally dismissed the facts of the case in a corrupt, even criminal manner. Can we expect this special prosecutor to follow up this investigation to hold these public officials accountable? Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I doubt it.

So that is where we wind up at this point. Either the local officials are incompetent to a point bordering on criminality, or this prosecution is indeed the product of a witch-hunt rooted in political pressure, media lies, public-mob frenzy, and racism.

Arbitrary Arrests and the Rule of Law

As a footnote here, I would also like to point out how the media is still intentionally slanting this story in a manner so as to portray Zimmerman as the villain. An article by the Associated Press reads in part...

"A video taken about 40 minutes after the shooting as Zimmerman arrived at the Sanford police station showed him walking unassisted without difficulty. There were no plainly visible bandages or blood on his clothing, but Zimmerman may have had a small wound on the back of his head."

Okay, so he was walking unassisted. What difference does that make? He never claimed to have broken legs. Without difficulty? How is the media able to determine what Zimmerman's level of pain or pain management might have been, from a few seconds of police station surveillance video? No plainly visible blood or bandages on his clothing, okay, that doesn't prove anything either. Just because the camera didn't capture it, doesn't mean it wasn't there, or that he wasn't attacked. Is one obligated to be bleeding profusely with broken bones before they may invoke their right to defend themselves against a violent attacker? Not in my book, and certainly not under Florida law. But finally, when this article tells us that Zimmerman "may" have had an injury to the back of his head, we can plainly see the disingenuous nature of the article. The original, unaltered video CLEARLY shows an injury to the back of his head consistent with his claim that his head was being beaten into the sidewalk. This AP article also leaves out, conveniently enough, the fact that Zimmerman also had a broken nose, and that all of his injuries were documented by both police and doctors, and that those injuries were consistent with his statement.

By pointing out the obvious media slant here, it is not my intention at all to lead you, the reader, to conclude that Zimmerman is in fact innocent of any crime. He might very well be guilty of killing that boy in a criminal manner. Indeed I do have my own suspicions, but they are not based on spin. My intent here though is to show how you are being lied to by the corporate press, and that so far, there is no real evidence which has come to light that would substantiate any criminal charges against the shooter. It sets a very dangerous precedent to give propaganda and rhetoric a priority over facts and the presumption of innocence through due-process. The tragedy of that boy's death will never be mitigated through an erroneous placement of blame or an emotional appeal to vengeance.
