” At CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, one thing is apparent: there’s a real youth movement happening. If the enthusiasm of these young people is any indication, our next generation is passionate about the future of our country.”
The App Controlled Smart Security Drone With A STUN GUN Built In To Zap Intruders With An 80,000 Volt Dart
The firm showed off the drone in a series of shocking demonstrations bringing a volunteer to the ground.
It says the drone uses a smart app to track intruders, and once it had received the go ahead from a human operator, it fires taser darts and unleashes 80,000 volts.”
“ Sen. Rand Paul urged the thousands that turned out for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to imagine electing a “friend of liberty” to the White House who will defend the Constitution and push back against a federal government that is trampling over their individual rights.
Mr. Paul, a likely 2016 presidential contender, suggested that he might fit the bill, and said it will take a “national revival of liberty” to restore the constitutional rights that have have been under assault by the Obama administration.
“You may think I am talking about electing a Republican. I am not,” Mr. Paul said. “I am talking about electing lovers of liberty. It isn’t good enough to pick the lesser of two evils. We must elect men and women of principle, and conviction and action that will lead us back to greatness.”
The remarks sparked a round of applause from libertarian-leaning crowd, which is champing at the bit for Mr. Paul to followed in the footsteps of his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, by running for the White House.
“There is a great battle going on,” Mr. Paul told the crowd. “It is for the heart and soul of America. The Fourth Amendment is equally important as the Second Amendment and conservatives cannot forget this.”

” Family members have been arguing that it was a clear case of self-defense when a Huntington Station man shot and killed an alleged home burglar.
But Youssef Abdel-Gawad has been charged with manslaughter, even though he said he was only trying to protect his family, WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reported Tuesday.
The family hopes surveillance video will clear their son, CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported.
“ It’s a sad situation,” said the defendant’s brother, Ramy Abdel-Gawad. “Video will show, you know, he was doing what anybody would do to protect his family.”
The Abdel-Gawads’ own surveillance cameras were rolling at the home, according to police, at the time of the incident back on Aug. 21 of last year.”
We assume that because the suspects were put to flight before the fatal shot that the LI police are maintaining that the danger was past and thus the situation did not merit the discharge of the shotgun . Ok . But if that be the case then shouldn’t all police be suspect whenever they shoot a fleeing suspect ?
According to the report , the DA doubts that the perp fired a shot but isn’t the presence of the gun reason enough for an act of self-defense ? Since when do the thugs have a right to the first shot for free ?
When we were younger there was a policy (unwritten or official ?) that police could only shoot in self-defense or in the face of imminent peril for others . That no longer seems to be the case as we read all the time of cops shooting at perps in flight . If it’s ok for them then why not for civilians defending their homes and families ?
Apparently the Supreme Court’s Tennessee v Gardner ruling in 1985 cleared the way for cops to shoot people in the back if the had committed a felony and if that is the justification for law enforcement , surely the civilian populace should be afforded the same rights , no ?

” India has said Russia holds “legitimate interests” in Ukraine, becoming the first major nation appearing to publicly lean towards Moscow at a time it is largely isolated internationally over its military intervention in the Crimean Peninsula.
India’s first official response came on a day Crimean MPs voted to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, prompting the US to activate some sanctions.
National security adviser Shivshankar Menon has said India wants the confrontation between the West and Moscow over Ukraine resolved peacefully. But he added that it also hoped that the interests of Russia and other stakeholders were taken into account.
“ We hope that whatever internal issues there are within Ukraine are settled peacefully, and the broader issues of reconciling various interests involved, and there are legitimate Russian and other interests involved…. We hope those are discussed, negotiated and that there is a satisfactory resolution to them,” Menon said today.
Menon’s reference to Russia’s “legitimate interests” sparked a sharp diplomatic response from Kiev.
“ We are not sure how Russia can be seen having legitimate interests in the territory of another country,” Roman Pyrih, the media secretary at the Ukrainian embassy in New Delhi, said. “In our view, and in the view of much of the international community, this is a direct act of aggression and we cannot accept any justification for it.”
The US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Japan — the seven G8 nations other than Russia — have criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to send troops into Ukraine’s southeastern Crimean Peninsula.”

” Personnel records of a Euharlee police officer involved in a deadly shooting show that she was repeatedly reprimanded over her 10 years on the job in Acworth.
Gatny worked at the Acworth Police Department for 10 years prior to that and personnel records indicate that she was written up and suspended a number of times for various infractions.
In a timeline, her supervisors say she “refused to follow orders” on everything from filing paperwork to carrying her walkie talkie.”
” Other details:
Gatny was involved in four car accidents in two years.
In 2007, she reportedly “left her duty belt, along with her weapon..with a civilian employee” while she had her picture taken with someone.
In 2008, while confronting three suspects, she fired her service weapon. An internal investigation found the suspect was trying to remove his backpack. She was convinced he was going for a gun, but a fellow officer said he never thought the suspect was armed.Internal Affairs concluded she should not be punished because the initial call for service said the suspects could have been armed. “
This woman had a known history of insubordination and incompetence yet continued to be employed as a police officer . How many others are out there with her type of record and how many police departments are hiding and/or protecting these unqualified individuals ?
The “blue wall of silence” is deadly to the public yet it persists even when a fellow officer is willing to buck the system and speak the truth as in the 2008 shooting in which she was cleared by her peers as are most all of the police’s actions everywhere . Something needs to be changed in entity that is allowed to investigate and exonerate it’s own . Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
” Gatny was ultimately fired from the Acworth Police department for failure to report to work. She started requesting time off for medical reasons, but eventually used up not just vacation, but more than a month of family medical Leave. Her superiors said they could no longer hold her position open for her.
Records show Gatny tried to get disability, but the insurance company said her claim was “not medically supported.”
Even through a career of wrecked vehicles , shameful firearms handling , insubordination and repeated reprimands the officer was only fired because her superiors said they “could no longer hold her position open for her.” Sounds like the postal service … but with guns and dictatorial powers . Shame .
George Carlin & Flip Wilson – 1973 – Wonderful Wino Radio
” George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 — June 22, 2008) was an American comedian, writer, social critic, and actor who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his “Seven dirty words” comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government’s power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. One newspaper called Carlin “the dean of counterculture comedians.”
The first of his 14 stand-up comedy specials for HBO was filmed in 1977. From the late 1980s, Carlin’s routines focused on sociocultural criticism of modern American society. He often commented on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture. In 2004, Carlin was placed second on the Comedy Central list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians, ahead of Lenny Bruce and behind Richard Pryor.
He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and hosted the first episode of Saturday Night Live. His final HBO special, It’s Bad for Ya, was filmed less than four months before his death. In 2008, he was posthumously awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
Flip Wilson (December 8, 1933 — November 25, 1998), born Clerow Wilson, Jr., was an American comedian and actor. In the early 1970s, Wilson hosted his own weekly variety series, The Flip Wilson Show. The series earned Wilson a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards.
In January 1972, Time magazine featured Wilson’s image on their cover and named him “TV’s first black superstar”. “

” After a city audit, Hampton, Florida, might be wiped off the map due do accusations of shady accounting and nepotism.”
” Union City police said Pollard and other customers were eating inside the Waffle House off Jonesboro Road shortly before 2 a.m. when a man with a black bandana on his face and hood on his head stormed inside with a gun drawn.
” He was just pointing the gun back and forth,” Pollard said.
The robber wouldn’t know it until later, but Pollard and his childhood friend, Jonathan Sutton, who happens to be an Atlanta police officer, both had guns.
Sutton was off duty and didn’t fire, but Pollard did.

” Details of a leaked phone call between EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister Urmas Paet suggest that the US-backed opposition was responsible for hiring snipers who gunned down protesters in Kiev and not the deposed government of Viktor Yanukovich, as the media widely claimed.
During the phone call, Paet tells Ashton that evidence presented to him by a doctor who treated victims of the sniper attacks clearly indicates both police and protesters were being shot at by the same people.
“ There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,” said Paet during the phone call, which was hacked by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).
“ And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM added.”
” A drone has filmed a huge dolphin stampede off the coast of California, with thousands of animals forming a mega-pod.
The film also shows three gray whales migrating down the coast and a newborn humpback whale snuggling alongside its mother in Maui.”
Capt Dave offers his own narration of the events :
” Captain Dave Anderson of Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California, at great personal risk, has recently filmed and edited a 5-minute video that contains some of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping, footage ever taken with a drone from the air of a huge mega-pod of thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California, and heartwarming close-ups hovering over a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom as an escort whale stands guard nearby, filmed recently in Maui.
According to N.O.A.A. Southern California has the greatest density of dolphins in the world. We have pods up to 10,000 strong stretched out for miles like the wildebeests of Africa. Over 400,000 common dolphin alone. We also have the largest concentration of blue whales on earth.
Capt. Dave explains, “This is the most beautiful and compelling five minute video I have ever put together. I learned so much about these whales and dolphins from this drone footage that it feels like I have entered a new dimension! I have not been this excited about a new technology since we built our underwater viewing pods on our whale watching boat. Drones are going to change how we view the animal world. Wow!”
Capt. Dave had to film this off a small inflatable boat, launching and catching the quadcopter drone by hand where a miss could mean injury to him from the four propeller blades or loss of the drone. He actually lost one drone on takeoff when it nicked his small VHF radio antenna on the 14 foot rigid inflatable he was filming from and it went into the water. Alone six miles offshore Capt. Dave , without thinking , dove into the cold, late-January waters off Dana Point to retrieve the valuable footage taken on a flight a half hour earlier that morning. “I had my hat and glasses on, I was fully clothed with long-johns on to keep warm and my cell phone and wallet in my pocket,” Captain Dave explained. “It was a stupid move, but the copter started sinking so fast it was my only hope to get the amazing footage I had just shot”. Since then he has attached flotation to the skids, which would save the footage, but every flight over the water still risks the DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter with a small GoPro HERO3 Black camera on it, as the $1,700 rig is not waterproof and the skids will not keep it upright on the ocean.”
” Raw video of a Bridgeport, Michigan man being arrested on March 4, 2014 for taking too much time to talk during a township board meeting has emerged on Youtube under the anonymous moniker, “Carla Citizen.” No contact information is available, nor is any information available as to the identity of the man. There has been no coverage of this arrest anywhere on the Internet.
The man is seen on video being led out the door while saying, “Don’t take it so rough.” A police officer says, “Don’t resist.” and a loud thud is heard. The man is then heard yelling, “Now I am being abused! Get this on film!”
The man is notified four separate times that his time is up. He is not notified that if he fails to stop speaking, or to sit down, that he will face arrest. In the span of 55 seconds the man is notified four times that his time to speak is up, and he is then summarily arrested not complying with the orders of police. The police interaction with the man by the time of contact, to the time of arrest was exactly four seconds. The man being arrested is clearly elderly and a four second window to comply with an order is unreasonable.
Video shows that the meeting was by no means a packed house. There were more empty chairs than chairs taken by attendees. It is not unreasonable to question what harm would have come in allowing the man another few minutes to speak. Put in the proper context Bridgeport is a town with an estimated population between 7,000, and 8,000. They are not managing billions of dollars and millions of people. They are a small rural town .”

The Valdosta Police Department Bureau of Investigations and Internal Affairs Investigators worked with Investigators from the District Attorney’s Office and ICE Agents during the investigation.
The investigation revealed that this conduct did not take place while Linger was on duty with the Valdosta Police Department. Linger, who was assigned to the Bureau of Patrol Services during his career with the police department, was immediately terminated from his employment as a Valdosta Police Officer on October 3, 2013.”
As we continue to compile cases of police illegality and corruption we have come across a common theme , that being the fact that no matter how heinous the crime a police officer is accused of there never seems to be a picture of the alleged perpetrator . Yet one more double standard regarding the different treatment under the law received by the “elites” and by the average citizen .
” A mother and father attending a birthday party for their 1-year-old nephew were tased by Baytown, Texas officers for not leaving a parking lot that police cruisers had blocked in.
Jodie and Christopher White told KHOU that police were called to the party because of an altercation between some of the adults in attendance. They were trying to leave, but the parking lot had been barricaded by arriving police cruisers.
“There were police in the parking lot blocking it in so we couldn’t move,” Jodie White said.
Police allegedly repeated their request, and Jodie White responded in a manner that, she admitted, was insulting, “they just rushed my car and opened the door and tasers were just everywhere.”
A member of the family recorded the incident, and when police rushed the White’s car, multiple children can be heard in the background, screaming.”
