The New York Police Department tried its hand at social outreach on Twitter Tuesday, deploying what was supposed to be a feel-good #MyNYPD hashtag.

The social media campaign backfired almost immediately, with users instead tweeting photos of instances of alleged police brutality by NYPD officers.

The hashtag hijacking has since gone viral. It should be noted, though, that not all the images being passed around are instances of real police brutality and many lack context.

Driving on our roads is a privilege regulated at the state level through licensing.

Gun ownership is a civil right guaranteed in the Constitution.

Those facts in mind, let’s have a look at another of Everytown’s propaganda graphics.

That graphic implies quite a lot. If Bloomberg were to get his way, police or some other government agency would be mandated to step into gun owners’ homes at regular intervals to keep tabs on the firearms and the people in those homes.

The Supreme Court says an anonymous tip can be sufficient to justify a decision by police to pull a car over on suspicion of reckless or drunken driving.

The justices voted 5-4 Tuesday to uphold a traffic stop in northern California in which officers subsequently found marijuana in the vehicle. The officers themselves did not see any evidence of reckless driving.

Gun Owners Shred NY SAFE Act Forms on Registration Deadline Day

Governor Andrew Cuomo found defiance instead of compliance this week in New York as gun owners showed him just what they think of his “SAFE” Act. Tuesday marked the deadline for gun owners to register their “assault weapons” under the anti-gun legislation. But, they had a slightly different way of marking the occasion:

Roughly 70 opponents of the law who gathered outside the Walter J. Mahoney State Office Building in downtown Buffalo late Tuesday afternoon to shred State Police registration forms for assault weapons.

So, why is this law so unpopular? Well, barring the fact that “assault weapon” is merely a political term, the SAFE Act has already resulted in 1,200 felony charges. Turns out New Yorkers don’t like legislation that essentially turns them from law-abiding citizens using their right to bear arms one day, and criminals the next.

NBC News: Police Firefights In Boston Bomber Hunt Show Cops Were Over-Gunned, Undertrained

Boston-Swat

In a stunning in-depth report from NBC News, the two gunfights that resulted in the apprehension of the Boston Marathon bombers is heavily criticized for exceedingly poor command and control and reckless gunfire.

The report, entitled Too Many Guns: How Shootout With Bombing Suspects Spiraled into Chaos, shows that the initial shootout in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev was eventually killed was almost a circular firing squad, as on-duty and off-duty officers, some in uniform and some in street clothes, arrived on the scene from multiple directions and began shooting no only at the Tsarnaev brothers, but each other:

In effect, the suspects ended up at the center of a ring of cops on Laurel Street between Dexter and School streets during the 20-minute firefight, and the bullets that were fired at them often hit near the officers on the other side.

“Certainly not a good idea,” said Davis. “They see somebody shooting, so they fire at them. That’s their training.”

More than a dozen officers suffered minor injuries during the mayhem, but none was believed to have been wounded by the suspects. The only serious wound was suffered by Richard Donohue, a transit cop with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, who was hit in the groin by a police bullet and began to bleed profusely.

The exact number of bullets fired y the Tsarnaev’s—who had just one handgun—may have totaled less than ten rounds. The responding police fired at least 100 rounds that authorities admit during this shootout, but the reality is that a much higher number of shots fired is probable.

After Nevada ranch stand-off, emboldened militias ask: where next?

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert.

He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management.

The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy’s cattle, which had been grazing illegally on federal lands for two decades. Bundy had refused to pay grazing fees, saying he did not recognize the government’s authority over the land, a view that attracted vocal support from some right-wing groups.

Citing public safety, the BLM retreated, suspending its operation and even handing back cattle it had already seized.

Murdered Cattle at Bundy Ranch Will Bring Feds Down in Court

Facebook/Stand with the Bundys

As Western Journalism reported yesterday, a series of photos from the scene of a federal government standoff in Clark County, Nev. indicate Bureau of Land Management agents slaughtered multiple cows on the Bundy Ranch. After alleging the ranch’s owner, Cliven Bundy, had failed to pay federal grazing fees for a number of years, armed BLM agents swarmed the area, resorting to physical violence against members of the family and threats toward those who arrived to support them.

Allegations this week, in the aftermath of BLM’s decision to back down in the face of growing opposition, are perhaps even more outrageous. According to one report, federal officials systematically gunned down numerous head of cattle, allowing others to be trampled in unorthodox herding practices.

The agency was apparently so preoccupied with removing the cattle from the ranch in an effort to punish the Bundys that its agents disregarded safe protocol. Michele Fiore, a Nevada assemblywoman who has been on the front lines in defending the ranch against the government’s excessive force, detailed the atrocities she said occurred on the property.

I am having a difficult time even finding words to adequately emphasize what is going on in this ONGOING STORY. If I had not followed this story since it broke on March 22nd I would think I was reading a Hollywood movie script.

The latest update is not from Louisville Local Law Enforcement – It’s from the FBI who are warning the local police about a coordinated effort of Black Middle School thugs who are heavily armed and have formed a gang -”YNO”- network inside several schools.

The FBI is reporting the groups now plan to launch attacks at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade.

Someone inside the FBI appears to be so unbelievably gobsmacked they are leaking details to the local media in Kentucky. To fully appreciate this you must revisit the backstory…

The man was rushed to hospital, but died on the way.

Thousands of angry people took to the streets, surrounded the police-inspectors in their van, attacked them with stones, bats, and beat them to death. People were shouting that the police-inspectors be killed on the spot for what they did: “Kill them! Kill them!”

Bloomturd’s New Campaign: Take Guns from Women in Abusive Households

Published on: April 20, 2014

For all Michael Bloomberg’s talk about simply wanting to secure expanded background checks, his newest gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety” is on a broader mission to take away the guns women in abusive homes could use for self defense.

In an April 16th tweet posted at 6:42 a.m, Everytown came out against guns in homes where someone is abusive. They did so without recognizing that the gun may be the only thing that gives the victim of abuse a fighting chance of survival.

The tweet said: “The presence of a gun makes it five times more likely domestic violence will turn into murder.” The bottom of the tweet is captioned: “Support policies that keep guns out of the hands of abusers.”

If you’re an employee of a chain store and you see a shoplifter, don’t confront them. It’s been proven again and again and again and again that no matter how noble your intentions are, you can be fired from your job. As KDFW FOX 4 News reports, this is exactly what happened to one Kroger grocery store manager in Arlington, Texas.

A customer in the parking lot of the Kroger recorded the incident on their cellphone. In the video, you can see the unnamed manager approach the shoplifting suspect. The suspect appears to have a knife in his hand. The manager shoves him into a parked car and gets the knife out the suspect’s hand before eventually slamming him down to the ground.

The San Mateo County bomb squad destroyed a suspected pipe bomb Thursday in Half Moon Bay and later discovered the supposed threat was just a set of paintbrushes, authorities said.

A resident walking in the 500 block of Kelly Street noticed something that looked like a pipe bomb, and reported the discovery to authorities about 11:06 a.m., San Mateo County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said. The sheriff’s office and bomb squad responded to the area near Cabrillo Highway to eliminate any potential threat.

Gun owners flying through N.Y and N.J. shouldn’t be arrested when they check their guns

We are all miserably accustomed to being informed that our rights must be curtailed because the Founders “couldn’t have imagined” the way in which they would eventually be exercised. “Well, sure it made sense to have an armed population back when the people only had muskets,” this argument tends to go. “But now that four-year-old children can buy semi-automatic nuclear death-rays with their Happy Meals, it’s just anachronistic.”

Silly as this approach ultimately is — basic individual rights do not rely upon the date for their integrity — it is one that can at least be earnestly entertained. 1789 was, after all, a different world. But what about 1986? Can laws written this recently really be said to have had a meaning then that we cannot apply reasonably now? The Third Circuit certainly thinks so, and a decision it issued last year has led to a significant number of people’s being arrested, charged, and thrown in jail. It is high time that this came to a stop. The problem is this: Because America has a federal system of government, the majority of the gun laws are set at the local level. Thus “assault weapons” that are banned in Connecticut and New York are readily attainable in Texas and Idaho; thus permissive concealed-carry regimes are available to the citizens of Vermont and Arizona but not to those in New Jersey and Illinois; and, thus, as one might expect, the transportation, brandishing, sale, and storage rules differ wildly by location. What is good for one set of people is anathema to another. Up to a certain point, this is all well and good. Indeed, within constitutional bounds, local variation is a good thing. It allows individuals to run their communities as they see fit, and it keeps an out-of-touch central government from imposing a single set of rules upon a big and diverse country. Nevertheless, however fractured the political system becomes, a question remains: What happens to people who are merely traveling through? What, for example, does one do if one wishes to drive across the country with a firearm — to and from places where one has a legal right to possess a gun, but through places where one does not?

Inside the Bundy Ranch and the Fight Against Government Overreach

Published on: April 20, 2014

Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday.

A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkerville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years.

Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been through the mail.

“I’ve received some certified letters that I haven’t opened, and that’s the only conversation on that, so I’m going to save those letters for maybe awhile. That’s how serious I think they are,” he said. “I’m tired of their bull. They put their guns at me and my family and these American people. How can I honor one of their letters? I might never open them,” he added.

Throughout the ordeal, which stems from a 20-year legal battle between the family and the federal government, Bundy has offered several explanations for why he’s in the right, most prominently his belief that the federal government has no authority over him.

Only a week earlier, both the federal agents Bundy supporters had snipers trained on each other in the showdown. But Friday on the ranch, mothers and fathers strolled around the clay desert ground along with their children in tow wearing name tag stickers saying, “Hello, my name is domestic terrorist,” a reference to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s accusation toward Bundy and his allies. Reid later called the group “domestic violent terrorist wannabes” on Friday afternoon.

“Bundy doesn’t believe that the American government is valid, he believes that the United States is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t follow the law. He doesn’t pay his fees,” said Reid on Las Vegas’ KSNV.

The Next Shoe Just Dropped: Court Denies Attorney-Client Privilege

Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog,

In the Land of the Free, people grow up hearing a lot of things about their freedom.

You’re told that you live in the freest country on the planet. You’re told that other nations ‘hate you’ for your freedom.

And you’re told that you have the most open and fair justice system in the world.

This justice system is supposedly founded on bedrock principles– things like a defendant being presumed innocent until proven guilty. The right to due process and an impartial hearing. The right to counsel and attorney-client privilege.

Yet each of these core pillars has been systematically dismantled over the years:

1. So that it can operate with impunity outside of the law, the federal government has set up its own secret FISA courts to rubber stamp NSA surveillance.

According to data obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, of the nearly 34,000 surveillance requests made to FISA courts in the last 35-years, only ELEVEN have been rejected.

Unsurprising given that FISA courts only hear the case from the government’s perspective. It is literally a one-sided argument in FISA courts. Hardly an impartial hearing, no?
