The government is buying whole lot of ammo – why?

Add another government agency that is buying ammunition in bulk.

Department of Homeland Security: 1.2 billion .40-caliber JHP
National Weather Service: 46,000 .40-caliber JHP
Social Security Administration: 174,000 .357 JHP

Remember jacketed hollow points (JHP) are a type of bullet that is intended to inflict the most damage to flesh of any bullet type. We are being told by these agencies that these bullets are “for training.” However, anyone who knows anything about training will tell you that you train with ball ammo. The military trains with ball ammo. The police train with ball ammo. The government agencies train with ball ammo.

Am the only one that really finds this frightening?

You are not allowed to record the police!

That Anthony Graber broke the law in early March is indisputable. He raced his Honda motorcycle down Interstate 95 in Maryland at 80 mph, popping a wheelie, roaring past cars and swerving across traffic lanes.

But it wasn’t his daredevil stunt that has the 25-year-old staff sergeant for the Maryland Air National Guard facing the possibility of 16 years in prison. For that, he was issued a speeding ticket. It was the video that Graber posted on YouTube one week later — taken with his helmet camera — of a plainclothes state trooper cutting him off and drawing a gun during the traffic stop near Baltimore.

In early April, state police officers raided Graber’s parents’ home in Abingdon, Md. They confiscated his camera, computers and external hard drives. Graber was indicted for allegedly violating state wiretap laws by recording the trooper without his consent. Continue reading ‘You are not allowed to record the police!’

Why I’m Currently Not the Biggest Fan of Police

By Carlos Miller (Original here)
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s detention officer who was caught on video swiping a document from the case file of a defense attorney was found incontempt of court Wednesday.

But in typical fashion, he will get off with a slap on his wrist under Judge Gary Donahoe’s ruling.

All Adam Stoddard needs to do to put that charge behind him is to call a press conference and make a public apology to defense attorney Joanne Cuccia.

If he fails to do that by December 1, he will be ordered to report to jail.

So you would think he would comply with the judge’s order and be done with it.

Not if Sheriff Joe Arpaio has anything to do with it.

“My officer was doing his job and I will not stand by and allow him to be thrown to the wolves by the courts because they feel pressure from the media on this situation,” Arpaio said in a press release. He further said, “I decide who holds press conferences and when they are held regarding this Sheriff’s Office.”

Considering Arpaio runs the jails, he will probably ensure that Stoddard never serves a day in jail.

Under Arizona law, contempt of court is considered a Class 2 Misdemeanor and punishable by up to four months in jail.

The Police State of Arizona

More photo radar cameras are on tap for the city of Phoenix.

Officer William Fisher said the additional cameras will target more than just red-light runners.

Fisher said there currently are red-light cameras at 12 intersections and two vans which do speed enforcement around schools and school zones.

“They’re talking about maybe adding some intersections — maybe speed on green or mid-block speed and maybe some enforcement around the light rail,” said Fisher.

He said cameras also will be used for secondary infractions, like expired tags, cracked windshields and seatbelt violations.

The cameras will be installed later this summer.

The exact locations have not been decided, according to Fisher.

“Usually how they pick the intersection is by statistics, by red-light running tickets or collisions in that intersection,” he said.

Why is this scary to me? First off, I want to face my accuser, not be threatened through the mail with a photograph. Secondly, reviewing for second-hand offense? That means that someone has to sit there and watch us all the time. This is a police state everyone. The government, in the name of safety or whatever other crap they come up with, is going to sit there and monitor what we do. No bueno.

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
