” The power of the internet knows no bounds. It is our most powerful weapon against corruption and has helped to shed light on the ones that wish to remain in the darkness.
The story below is another wonderful example of how the internet is helping to exonerate the innocent whilst bringing justice to the corrupt.
A man was assaulted by police and his video of the incident confiscated. He was then jailed for 10 days after false charges were brought against him.
A year later he received his phone back only to find that the files had been corrupted and the video unplayable.
He reached out to the internet, and the internet answered. One of the files was repaired by a reddit user, which shows the assault on video. He explains what happens in the story below.”
Below is a newly released video from Mr “Baxter” purporting to document the tampering of his cell phone while in police custody . Mr “Baxter” has other files pertaining to the assault that are still corrupted and welcomes any assistance from the public in retrieving those files . The corrupted files are available for download here and you can read more of his plight at The Free Thought Project.
A Liveleak user has also managed to recover a substantial portion of the audio in which the officer can be heard telling the videographer to get the f**k out of here .
This entire episode seems somewhat suspicious as the videographer provides no details beyond the video . Following various links leads one to assume that this transpired in Oneida county in upstate NY and while the videos are posted on Youtube under the name of George Baxter on one video the videographer claims his name is Mark Lambridge .
The video offers a brief glimpse of the patrol car and it’s license plate but is too blurry for us to make out as is the view of the officer’s name tag and the license plates on a truck in the background . As much as we despise police abuse and want to help in combatting it , we cannot help but believe that we are not getting the whole story here . We reserve judgement for now and offer the reader what information that we could find . Decide for yourselves .
” Obamacare enrollment numbers have fallen so short of the Obama administration’s anticipated goal that the government has begun enrolling America’s most upstanding citizens–our incarcerated population–and picking up the tab for it, too.
Albany County, New York Sheriff Craig Apple has pushed hard for prisoners to enroll in Obamacare. He says it’s a win-win situation for inmates and taxpayers. Apple told WRGB that taxpayers will only be forced to pay once for inmates’ medical bills- through their federal taxes, not in addition to their county taxes. Sheriff Apple said that there are around 400 inmates eligible to enroll in Obamacare.”
Read the rest and see if you think Sheriff Apple is right . All we can see is that thanks to government healthcare we , the taxpayers , are picking up the tab for anyone who can’t pay for it themselves which by their very nature means all inmates all the time … Obamacare or not . Yet who could deny the enhancements to the enrollment numbers that the two million member captive audience that is the prison population can offer as a much needed public relations boost to the beleaguered ACA .
” Remington first began considering new locations after the New York legislature passed the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act in response to the tragic shootings in Newtown, Conn. In addition to banning magazines that contain more than seven rounds and requiring instant background checks on ammo purchases, the NY SAFE Act broadened the definition of so-called “assault weapons” to include a wide range of guns, including the Bushmaster, which was being manufactured at Remington’s New York plant.
Almost half the states in the country have made pitches to Remington, included Arizona, Oklahoma, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. But in the end, the company chose Huntsville, Ala.
The initial estimated impact on Alabama’s economy will be roughly $87 million.”
Way to go Andy … it’s not like NY has jobs to spare , especially upstate . This move on Remington’s part is surely he beginning of the end for it’s Ilion operations and one wonders , will Kimber be next ?

TSA Searches Valet Parked Cars
” She says she had no warning that someone was going to search her car after she left to catch her flight. So the woman contacted News10NBC.
We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected.
So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them?
Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that’s when she found it — a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.” “
SWAT officer attracts ridicule after he’s pictured with his rifle sight on backwards
“A SWAT team in upstate New York is being mocked as an example of the difference between military and police training after an officer was captured peering through a backwards sight on his combat rifle.
As users on the military Reddit were quick to point out when the image was posted, the reverse sight makes it effectively useless.
Users mocked the SWAT officers training and some went so far as to question the motives of some of the men serving in local law enforcement.”
“Actress Kyra Sedgwick might be tempting fate in Hollywood with a recent interview on the Tavis Smiley show on PBS where she scolded her industry for ignoring the great middle of the country.
Sedgwick was on the show discussing her recently concluded series The Closer on TNT and noted that the show was a great hit in the Midwest, but not in L.A. or New York City. At first she said she felt insulted at this ratings truth, but it wasn’t long before she realized that this wasn’t a bad thing at all.”
“The vast majority of tickets we see are for breaking one of these million rules they have: You’re a foot too close to the fire hydrant, a foot too close to the crosswalk,
the table is too long,” said Mr. Basinski, who has been lobbying to change the fine structure for several years. “You can very quickly be at that $1,000 level for every
As someone who spent thirty years trying to negotiate the byzantine maze of laws and regulation in the state of NY and show a profit , I can attest to the fact that the state seems bent on driving us all to ” go Galt ” . I know that’s what I did .
