Disabled Boy Records Bullies Tormenting Him, Police Charge Him With Illegal Wiretapping

 

Bullying

 

 

 

” After a disabled special education child tried to record how bullies were tormenting him at school, the police in Pennslyvania responded by slapping him with the charge of felony wiretapping.

  Back in 2012, the Huffington Post documented the new trend of parents having their disabled children wiretapped based upon abuse from teachers and bullying students alike. Although some organizations like the National Autism Association “strongly suggest” using recording devices if they suspect a problem, others like the National Association of Special Education Teachers say that secret recordings are a bad idea based upon legal issues and the privacy rights of other children. In the worst case scenario, the children being bullied might themselves get in trouble under the law. Unfortunately, this is apparently exactly what happened.

  The disabled boy in this new incident was not named specifically, but his mother’s name is Shea Love, and she did not demand that her son record what the bullies were allegedly doing to him. The 15-year-old boy was previously diagnosed with a comprehension delay disorder, ADHD, and an anxiety disorder. The boy claims he was constantly being bullied at his school, and in order to prove to his mother that he “wasn’t lying” he decided to use his school-issued iPad to record the bullying: “

Suit: Elderly Man Tasered 6 Times After Being Mistaken For His Brother

 

 

 

” An elderly Pennsylvania man was tasered by police not once, not twice, but six times in a Wal-Mart parking lot after being mistaken for his brother, according to a suit filed in federal court.

  According to the suit, Robert Gross, 76, had driven his brother, Carl Gross Sr., to see Carl’s granddaughter Aug. 21, 2012 at an Allentown hair cutting salon.

  Carl walked into the Cost Cutters on the 1000 block of Millcreek Road. When Carl did not return after 10 minutes, Robert Gross decided to walk to the nearby phone store to see what it might cost to replace his cell phone. Shortly after getting out of his pickup truck he encountered two Berks Lehigh police officers, the suit states.

  The officers began shouting and screaming.  When they reached Robert  they threw him to the ground on his chest. When Gross asked what was going on, the police replied “you know.” “

Accused Craigslist Killer Claims More Slayings

 

 

” A Pennsylvania teen accused of killing a man she met on Craigslist told a local newspaper she and her husband did kill Troy LaFerrara — and dozens of other men.

  She is accused of stabbing LaFerrara, 42, 20 times as her husband strapped a cord around LaFerrara’s neck from the back seat.

  Miranda Barbour told the newspaper they participated in several slayings in Alaska and others in Texas, North Carolina and California. She said she “stopped counting” at 22 victims.

” I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them,” she said.

  Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against both Barbours. Police have said that Elytte Barbour, 22, told investigators the couple are members of a satanic cult and that they committed the crime because they wanted to kill someone together. The couple married in North Carolina and moved to Pennsylvania about three weeks before the first crime.”

Ex-Marcus Hook Mayor Sentenced To 10-20 Months

 

 

 

” Despite impassioned pleas from family and friends of former Marcus Hook Mayor James Schiliro, a Delaware County Court judge on Monday sent him to jail.”

 

 

 

” Schiliro was sentenced to 10 to 20 months for an alcohol-fueled episode last February in which he had a police car bring a former neighbor – a 20-year-old to whom he said he was attracted – to his home, made him drink wine, and refused to let him leave for 3 1/2 hours.

  During the encounter, Schiliro threatened to kill himself and fired a gun into a stack of papers. The man eventually left and later called police.

  In November, Schiliro was convicted of recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, official oppression, and furnishing liquor to a minor.”

Southern Discomfort: U.S. Army Seeks Removal Of Lee,

‘Stonewall’ Jackson Honors

 

 

” The U.S. Army War College , which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

  Nestled in rural Pennsylvania on the 500-acre Carlisle Barracks, the war college is conducting an inventory of all its paintings and photographs with an eye for rehanging them in historical themes to tell a particular Army story.

  During the inventory, an unidentified official — not the commandant, Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III — asked the administration why the college honors two generals who fought against the United States, college spokeswoman Carol Kerr said.

“ I do know at least one person has questioned why we would honor individuals who were enemies of the United States Army,” Ms. Kerr said. “There will be a dialogue when we develop the idea of what do we want the hallway to represent.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Couple Spends Month In Prison After Cops Find ‘White Powdery Substance’

 

 

 

 

” Annadel Cruz, 26, and her companion Alexander Berstein, 30, spent an entire month in prison on cocaine trafficking charges after a state trooper in Pennsylvania pulled them over for traffic violations and found two “bricks” of a white substance they determined was cocaine.

  Cruz maintained it was only homemade soap, not cocaine. When the official lab tests came back, officers realized a big mistake had been made. All charges were immediately dropped when it was determined the substance was, indeed, soap.

  When a state trooper pulled Cruz over, he claimed he smelled marijuana in the car. Cruz actually admitted that she had smoked some weed before she left New York City, but not while she was driving. The trooper then asked if he could search the car, a request Cruz granted.”

Rutherford Institute Defends 10-Year-Old Suspended For Shooting Imaginary Arrow, Threatened with Expulsion Under Weapons Policy

 

 

 

 

” The Rutherford Institute has come to the defense of a 10-year-old boy who was suspended under a school zero tolerance policy for shooting an imaginary “arrow” at a fellow classmate, using nothing more than his hands and his imagination. Johnny Jones, a fifth grader at South Eastern Middle School, was suspended for a day and threatened with expulsion under the school’s weapons policy after playfully using his hands to draw the bowstrings on a pretend “bow” and “shoot” an arrow at a classmate who had held his folder like an imaginary gun and “shot” at Johnny. In coming to Jones’ defense, Rutherford Institute attorneys have asked Rona Kaufmann, Superintendent of the South Eastern School District in Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania, to rescind the suspension and remove all references to the incident from Jones’ permanent school record.

“ The Rutherford Institute has been called on to intervene in hundreds of cases like this involving young people who were suspended, expelled, and even arrested for violating school zero tolerance policies that criminalize childish behavior and punish all offenses severely, no matter how minor or non-threatening the so-called infraction may have been,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State. “We all want to keep the schools safe, but I’d far prefer to see something credible done about actual threats, rather than this ongoing, senseless targeting of imaginary horseplay.” “

 

 

 

    This insanity must be stopped . Our children are being taught to be unthinking automatons by the very system that is supposed to foster imagination and creativity . If you are as offended by the “zero tolerance” as we are perhaps you would like to help the Rutherford Institute in it’s invaluable efforts to restore our liberties .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From The Land Of The Liberty Bell: Investigate The NSA

 

 

” Here in Pennsylvania, we have a full-time legislature, so as the lobbyist for the Pennsylvania affiliate of the ACLU, I have plenty of opportunities for face time with state legislators and staff. Since June, I’ve been hearing a similar refrain repeatedly: NSA surveillance is a major problem. We deal with a lot of state-level surveillance legislation, and I’ve joked with legislators and staff that Edward Snowden has made my job a lot easier.

Last week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives formalized that concern by passing a resolution to protest the NSA’s sweeping surveillance activities and to call on Congress to create a special committee to investigate and to recommend revisions to the USA PATRIOT Act and for reforms at the NSA and the FBI. The vote on House Resolution 456 wasn’t even close.

The final tally: 194 to 2.”

Pennsylvania Police Department Claims Departmental Policy Forbids Them From Being Recorded in Public

” A Pennsylvania cop responding to a report of an accident refused to talk to the citizen unless his friend turned off the camera.

The citizen insisted on his friend recording, so Lancaster police officer Philip Bernot walked back to his car and drove off, refusing to take the report.

The citizen said he called the desk sergeant to complain, but was told it is a departmental policy not to be recorded.

A departmental policy has to be in writing, so will someone please call them and ask for a copy while recording the conversation?

If you live in a two-party consent state, which you can find out through this link, inform them that you’re recording and just start asking them questions. “

Naked Haunted House Scares Up New Halloween Business (Video)

In a video published to YouTube on Sep. 30, the Shocktoberfest Scream Park in Sinking Springs, Pa. shows off the latest attraction, called “Naked and Scared”, which is already doing brisk business.

” The student debt crisis continues to grow larger and more dangerous with each passing school year. The skyrocketing price for a college degree is causing an epidemic with student loans as more people rack up unsustainable amounts of debt to further their education. Using debt to obtain a degree can be beneficial if done properly, but there are certainly some states worse off than others when comparing debt to earnings .

 

With lenders handing out loans like candy, the amount of student loan debt in America has nearly doubled in the past five years, from $550 billion in late 2007 to $986 billion in the first quarter of 2013. In fact, two-thirds of recent graduates have student loans, with an average balance of more than $27,000, according to a new report from the Joint Economic Committee.”

Child In Lung Transplant Controversy Gets Donor

 

 

” Sarah Murnaghan, the 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl with cystic fibrosis who has been at the center of national controversy over transplant policy, was receiving an adult lung transplant on Wednesday.

Family spokeswoman Maureen Garrity said the child is getting lungs from one adult donor, ending a campaign by the family in the highly publicized case, which involved pressure from lawmakers and more recently intervention by a federal judge, to allow their child to receive adult lungs.

Garrity said the family got a call about the donor Tuesday night and found out the organs were a match Wednesday morning. Sarah Murnaghan went into the operating room shortly before noon Wednesday.

“Sarah got THE CALL. She will be taken back to the OR in 30min. Please pray for Sarah’s donor, her HERO, who has given her the gift of life,” her mother, Janet Murnaghan, wrote on Facebook on Wednesday morning.”

” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed an appeal from Rep. Lou Barletta on behalf of a girl who needs a lung transplant but can’t get one because of a federal regulation that prevents her from qualifying for a transplant.

“Please, suspend the rules until we look at this policy,” Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, asked Sebelius during a House hearing Tuesday on behalf of Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl who needs a lung transplant. She can’t qualify for an adult lung transplant until the age of 12, according to federal regulations, but Sebelius has the authority to waive that rule on her behalf. The pediatric lungs for which she currently qualifies aren’t available.”

GUN STORE RUNNING AR-15 GIVEAWAYS ON FACEBOOK SEES PAGE SHUT DOWN — AND FACEBOOK HASN’T CONTACTED HIM TO SAY WHY

 

 

 

 

” When TheBlaze first spoke with Erik Lowry, he was running a contest on Facebook to give away an AR-15. Now, a couple months later, the fan page for Pittsburgh Tactical Firearm, Lowry’s store, has been shut down, along with a secondary page he established to replace it a couple days ago.

“I still don’t know what’s going on,” Lowry told TheBlaze in a phone interview Sunday afternoon.

If Facebook had contacted him and explained how his page was in violation, he said he would have at least had the opportunity to make changes to bring it into compliance.

Other, larger firearm manufacturers and stores with Facebook pages remaining active, which according to Lowry shows the “hypocrisy of Facebook.” Lowry and a few other pages that were shut down after being brought to Facebook’s attention by Vocativ, started secondary pages afterward. All of them, except Lowry’s, remain active and he’s still not sure why.”

The Kermit Gosnell Case Confirms That Late-Term Abortion Can Amount To Legalised Infanticide

 

 

 

 

” Thanks to the US media blackout, I had no idea who Dr Kermit Gosnell was until Friday. Now that I do, I hope the name becomes seared into the American national consciousness. It could transform the debate about abortion.

Gosnell was one of those “courageous foot soldiers of the prochoice movement” who ran an abortion clinic for poor women in Pennsylvania. A more accurate word for the institution, provided by Andrew McCarthy, is “abattoir”. It is alleged that conditions were unhygienic (investigators said it smelled of animal urine) and unqualified employees performed complex medical procedures. One woman died during an abortion from an overdose of anaesthesia. Terminations were performed after the state’s 24-week limit (which is itself only supposed to be reached in extreme cases) and babies were pulled screaming from their mothers. They were dispatched using a crude snipping technique: the victim was flipped upside down and the spinal cord severed using a pair of scissors. Bodies were stored in jars. Said one employee, “It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.” If Gosnell is found guilty, he himself will face execution.

The case has three big consequences. First, it reminds us that the abortion industry is indeed an industry – operating for profit, sometimes with cynical motives. Gosnell claims he was helping poor women, but he charged $3,000 for a procedure and enjoyed an annual income of $1.5 million. That he is accused to reusing medical supplies suggests that he upped his profit margin by reducing costs. Gosnell was a businessman, not a doctor.

Second, the claim that “hundreds” of babies survived the late-term abortion within the mother’s body and had to be killed outside of it blows out of the water the insistence of Planned Parenthood that such survival rates are very rare. Evidently, those babies are made of tougher stuff than prochoice militants realise.

Finally, the Gosnell story has to reopen the discussion about the nature of late-term abortions. It is self-evident that state and local agencies did not do their job, reflecting a “hands-off” approach to the abortion industry by politicians and public employees that smacks of moral complacency. More profoundly, if the demon doctor is found guilty of seven counts of murder related to the children, the question has to be asked “why”? Beyond breaking the 24-week limit, the implication of a guilty verdict is that those were not just “parts of a woman’s body” but human lives that Kermit casually snipped away with a pair of scissors. That they only became human lives the moment they left the mother’s body is an absurd proposition: the issue here is clearly age and development of the fetus. Inside or outside their mother, a guilty verdict suggests that they had reached the point of becoming human beings with rights. To quote columnist Kirsten Powers:

Regardless of such quibbles, about whether Gosnell was killing the infants one second after they left the womb instead of partially inside or completely inside the womb — as in a routine late-term abortion — is merely a matter of geography. That one is murder and the other is a legal procedure is morally irreconcilable.

The conclusion that can be drawn is that because of the relative development of the fetus, a late-term abortion involves something closer to the taking of life than earlier terminations. Basic human empathy should tell you that. I want you to take a look at a photo published by The Atlantic of one of the girls delivered by Gosnell as part of a late-term abortion. Look at her hair, her fully formed face, arms, legs and toes. Imagine her crying. That is a child. A child with a right to life.

The Gosnell case isn’t just about one man’s guilt – it’s about the moral compass of an entire nation. Late-term abortion of this variety amounts to legalised infanticide. It must stop.”
