Newark Cop: “I Can Do Whatever the Hell I Want”

More: www.SHTFplan.com While the consequences of his actions were not as horrific as those of the San Francisco police department over the weekend ( www.youtube.com ), this Newark, New Jersey police officer provides us a glimpse into the culture that seems to be pervading police departments across the United States. While there are no doubt great officers out there – those who understand what the Constitution stands for and the importance of ensuring that the Rule of Law is protected – it is the bad apples, who act not as servants of the people, but rather, agents of tyranny, that have lead the majority of Americans to distrust law enforcement in general.

"The time must come when, great and pressing as change and betterment may be, they do not involve killing and hurting people."

"The cause of war is preparation for war."

"The Negro slave trade was the first step in modern world commerce, followed by the modern theory of colonial expansion. Slaves as an article of commerce were shipped as long as the traffic paid."

"The world is shrinking together; it is finding itself neighbor to itself in strange, almost magic degree."

"Human nature is not simple and any classification that roughly divides men into good and bad, superior and inferior, slave and free, is and must be ludicrously untrue and universally dangerous as a permanent exhaustive classification."

"I believe in God who made of one blood all races that dwell on earth. I believe that all men, black and brown and white, are brothers, varying through Time and Opportunity, in form and gift and feature, but differing in no essential particular, and alike in soul and in the possibility of infinite development."

"Herein lies the tragedy of the age: not that men are poor, — all men know something of poverty; not that men are wicked — who is good? not that men are ignorant, — what is Truth? Nay, but that men know so little of men."

"The Soviet Union does not allow any church of any kind to interfere with education, and religion is not taught in public schools. It seems to me that this is the greatest gift of the Russian Revolution to the modern world. Most educated modern men no longer believe in religious dogma. If questioned they will usually resort to double-talk before admitting the fact. But who today actually believes that this world is ruled and directed by a benevolent person of great power who, on humble appeal, will change the course of events at our request? Who believes in miracles? Many folk follow religious ceremonies and services and allow their children to learn fairy tales and so-called religious truth, which in time the children come to recognize as conventional lies told by their parents and teachers for the children’s good. One can hardly exaggerate the moral disaster of the custom. We have to thank the Soviet Union for the courage to stop it."

"I do not laugh. I am quite straight-faced as I ask soberly:
"But what on earth is whiteness that one should so desire it?" Then always, somehow, some way, silently but clearly, I am given to understand that whiteness is the ownership of the earth forever and ever, Amen!
Now what is the effect on a man or a nation when it comes passionately to believe such an extraordinary dictum as this? That nations are coming to believe it is manifest daily. Wave on wave, each with increasing virulence, is dashing this new religion of whiteness on the shores of our time. Its first effects are funny: the strut of the Southerner, the arrogance of the Englishman amuck, the whoop of the hoodlum who vicariously leads your mob."

"How shall Integrity face Oppression? What shall Honesty do in the face of Deception, Decency in the face of Insult, Self-Defense before Blows? How shall Desert and Accomplishment meet Despising, Detraction, and Lies? What shall Virtue do to meet Brute Force? There are so many answers and so contradictory; and such differences for those on the one hand who meet questions similar to this once a year or once a decade, and those who face them hourly and daily."

“Talk of the abuses of slavery! Humbug! The thing itself is the essence of all abuse!”

“The truth is the kindest thing we can give folks in the end.”

“Treat ’em like dogs, and you’ll have dogs’ works and dogs’ actions. Treat ’em like men, and you’ll have men’s works.”

“The longest day must have its close — the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning. An eternal, inexorable lapse of moments is ever hurrying the day of the evil to an eternal night, and the night of the just to an eternal day.”

“Religion! Is what you hear at church religion? Is that which can bend and turn, and descend and ascend, to fit every crooked phase of selfish, worldly society, religion? Is that religion which is less scrupulous, less generous, less just, less considerate for man, than even my own ungodly, worldly, blinded nature? No! When I look for religion, I must look for something above me, and not something beneath.”

“So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls, why don’t somebody wake up to the beauty of old women?”

“To be really great in little things, to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life, is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.”

“I am speaking now of the highest duty we owe our friends, the noblest, the most sacred–that of keeping their own nobleness, goodness, pure and incorrupt…If we let our friend become cold and selfish and exacting without remonstrance, we are no true lover, no true friend.”

“It is generally understood that men don’t aspire after the absolute right, but only to do about as well as the rest of the world.”

Animal Abuse – What Constitutes Cruelty?

Animal abuse or animal cruelty refers to ill treatment or substandard care that result in needless harm, distress, or suffering. Standards of animal abuse laws, implementation, and tolerance vary across the US. So conditions that constitute abuse are decided on a case-to-case basis.

For example, at least five issues have caused divided opinions among the American public.

1. Fur Farming

2. Factory Farming

3. Animal testing of cosmetic products

4. Medical research using animal subjects

5. Using animals (especially wild animals) in a rodeo or circus

Practices that are considered cruel in other countries, which are tolerated in the US, include tail docking, ear cropping, and the Geier Hitch (using a rope through a nose ring to herd livestock).

Welfare Vs. Rights

Perhaps one reason for the divided opinion of the American public over issues of what constitutes cruelty is the fact that two active animal advocacy movements have responded differently to the question.

Animal welfare advocates say that using animals for human gain may sometimes be justified. But they aim to work at both improving treatment and ending unwarranted suffering.


On the other hand, animal rights advocates believe that an animal has rights just like a human being. That is, each animal has a right NOT to be used for human gain. They work at stopping humans from handling animals like commodities.

Psychological Implications

As mentioned, animal abuse has far-reaching implications on the state of mind of the abuser. The FBI, for one, states that a history of animal abuse is a recurring trait in profiles of murderers and serial rapists.

Furthermore, studies have shown that children who are animal abusers are often victims of abuse themselves or have, at least, seen abuse committed against a member of their family.

The US Humane Society released findings from two studies to this effect: Around a third of families experiencing domestic violence had one child at least who’d hurt/killed a pet.

How Cruelty Is Dealt With in the US

Anyone involved in animal care and training in the US should check out the cornerstone legislation, Cruelty to Animals Act. The law focuses on minimum (rather than optimum) care requirements, such as:

1. Food, water, and shelter

2. Medical care

3. Outlawing torture or inhumane killing

Animal advocacy groups and pet lovers decry the law’s ineffectiveness or silence on practices at circuses and rodeos and the treatment of animals considered pests. Moreover, that enforcement across the US is lamentably inconsistent.

But some states take animal abuse more seriously than others. In New York, for instance, humane society representatives are appointed by the state to enforce laws against animal cruelty. Another state with a similar policy is Massachusetts.

The US is also home to two of the most active animal advocacy groups in the world:

– The Humane Society of the United States

– Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

As penalties for animal abuse are minor, the best thing animal lovers can hope for is that once cases of cruelty are exposed the abuse will end.

Generation Opportunity Poll: Young Americans (18-29) Rate America?s Debt as the Top National Security Issue

Generation Opportunity Poll: Young Americans (18-29) Rate America’s Debt as the Top National Security Issue

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 26, 2011

Generation Opportunity, the new, non-profit, non-partisan organization educating, engaging, and mobilizing young Americans 18-29 years old on the immediate and long-term economic challenges facing the nation – such as the lack of job opportunities and increasing debt and federal spending – is releasing new data from its national study on Millennials revealing the top national security issues of concern to young Americans.

The top national security issue is the debt.

In priority order, young Americans believe that the national debt, increased dependency on foreign sources of energy, and America’s indebtedness to foreign powers have made America more vulnerable. To reduce these risks and to manage these national security challenges, young Americans believe elected officials in Washington, D.C. need to get the nation on a more stable economic footing by cutting federal spending rather than raising taxes and by increasing the production of domestic energy sources such as oil, natural gas, and coal.

“The generation that is expected to pay the skyrocketing federal debt is sending a clear signal to elected leaders of both parties in Washington – federal spending and debt, our indebtedness to foreign powers and our dependency on overseas sources of energy have placed the United States at risk,” said Paul T. Conway, president of Generation Opportunity. “These young Americans have witnessed first-hand how the poor economy and the lack of economic opportunity have negatively impacted their own lives, they think Washington is out of touch with their concerns and they know the status quo and continued failure to lead jeopardizes both our present national security and our future status as a global leader. ”


Generation Opportunity recently commissioned a poll with the polling company, inc./WomanTrend (April 16 – 22, 2011, +/- 4% margin of error) and highlights some of the results below.

National Security Concerns and The Future of American Leadership:

Top 3 greatest threats to American National Security: National Debt (62%), Energy Dependency (61%) and Indebtedness to Foreign Powers (50%). The threat of terrorism at (39%) followed as the fourth major national security concern.

Millennials – when asked on a scale of 1 (meaning not at all) to 5 (meaning a very big concern) how much of a concern America’s current “financial debt”/”deficit” rates, 66% indicated very big concerns with America’s “financial debt’ and 71% indicated very big concerns about America’s ‘deficit.’

54% – more than one half – are not confident that the US will be a global leader in just 10 years. Only 9% said they were “very confident” that the US would be.

70% (net) would increase production of domestic energy sources like oil, natural gas and coal; only 22% (net) would decrease production of the same energy sources.

76% view China as a danger: 48% as an economic threat and 28% as both an economic and military threat.

Millennials and The Path Ahead – Putting America’s Fiscal House in Order:

76% would like to see federal spending decreased.

69% prefer reducing federal spending over raising taxes on individuals in order to balance the Federal budget.

59% believe the economy grows best when individuals are allowed to create businesses without government interference.

53% indicate if taxes on business profits were reduced, companies would be more likely to hire.

Only 31% approve of President Obama’s handling of youth unemployment.

What Constitutes as “travel Away From Home”?

When it comes to business travel, expenses, and deductions, I am frequently asked “What constitutes travel away from home and why is it important?”

In order for certain business travel expenses to be deductible, you must be traveling “away from home.” There are actually two parts to this question. The first is, “Where is my tax home?” The second is, “What constitutes being ‘away’ from home?”

Your tax home is a facts and circumstances question. That is, each person’s tax home will be different, not just depending on location of the person’s residence, but depending on the person’s circumstances. For most of us, our tax home is where we live full time. But there are many circumstances where this is not clear. For example, where is a full-time student’s tax home? Is it his permanent address with his parents or his temporary address while at school nine months during the year?


Or, what happens if you don’t really have a permanent residence? This was the situation in a case several years back where a traveling salesman traveled so much that the IRS and the court concluded that he did not even have a tax home.

Then, we have the question of how far do we have to travel to be “away” from our tax home? Is an hour across town sufficient? What about going 50 miles away to a neighboring town? There are many court cases discussing this question. One court suggested that a taxpayer had to go beyond the metropolitan area in which he lived in order to be “away.” Another court said that the taxpayer had to go into another county.

Finally, how long do you have to be away in order to qualify as “away” for tax purposes? The courts and the IRS generally have held that if you need to stay overnight to rest because of the work and the distance, then you are “away.” But, if you can reasonably go to and from the location in a single day without rest, you are not away from home.

Why is this important? If you are away from home, your meals and lodging are deductible so long as they are ordinary and necessary to your business. Meals are always deductible if you have a business purpose for the meal, specifically if you are eating with a business associate or client. But what if you are eating alone? Then, you have to be traveling away from home for the meal to be deductible. Even lodging is only deductible if you are away from home.

Since everyone’s situation is different, if you have a question about whether your trip is away from home, I suggest you contact your tax coach to get help.

What Constitutes an Unreasonable Search and Seizure?

The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution is perhaps one of the most frequently litigated constitutional amendments in the courts. In its entirety, the Fourth Amendment states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The main purpose of the Fourth Amendment is to protect “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.” The right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures is a right guaranteed to every American citizen. The point of this right is to limit the government from unnecessary intrusions into your rights as a free citizen.


An unreasonable search and seizure issue most often arises when law enforcement searches a car after a traffic stop. The question then becomes whether the officers had reasonable suspicion to stop the car in the first place and/or probable cause to search the vehicle. If the police have seized property obtained through an illegal vehicle search, the seizure of the property is considered unreasonable.

An unreasonable search and seizure can also occur when law enforcement seeks to search a person’s home. In order for a search to be valid, the police must first obtain a warrant, which is supported by probable cause, and describes the place to be searched with particularity. If these requirements are not met, the defendant can petition the court to exclude the evidence at trial. The court will then determine if the police conformed to the requirements of the Fourth Amendment when obtaining the warrant and can order that the evidence not be allowed in trial under the exclusionary rule.

If the police search someone’s property without a warrant, the search is considered unreasonable unless exigent circumstances existed at the time of the search. The burden is then placed on the prosecution to prove that the police believed that there was an imminent danger that required an immediate search. Examples of such danger include, gunshots, a person screaming, or fire emanating from inside a building. Courts have also held that destruction of physical evidence can provide the police justification to search property in order to prevent its destruction. If any of these reasons exist then the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement is not violated.

If you believe that you are the victim of an unconstitutional search then it is imperative you contact an attorney.

The shaky amateur video shot at the scene of the incident shows a couple of SUV’s escorting France’s Ambassador away from the Maryamiyya Church in Old town Damascus. Eye witness reports say the ambassador’s body guards used tear gas and a sound bomb to disperse a crowd of angry protesters who gathered outside the church in order to denounce the visit of ambassador Eric Chevallier to the church’s patriarch. France and the US have been pushing for Security Council action on Syria as the country has witnessed anti-government protests since mid-march. The pro-Assad protesters pelted the ambassador with eggs and tomatoes and chanted anti-French slogans. Church spokesperson father Isaac said the visit of the French ambassador to the Patriarch has been scheduled for a month. The ambassador wished to carry a courtesy visit to inquire about the conditions of Syrian Christians The incident at the Greek Orthodox church recalls an earlier event which involved US ambassador to Syria Robert Ford and church bishop Luka Khoury. Bishop Khoury is reported to have told Ambassador Ford he was not welcome following the US ambassador’s breach of travel restrictions and his support of opposition movements in Syria Church officials say the group of angry protesters have dispersed after the incident.

Five Reasons to Check Out the Dahle 20434 High Security Shredder

For some organizations, only the very highest in shredder security levels will suffice. Featuring an NSA/CSS-approved level 6 security, the Dahle 20434 offers military units, government agencies, research teams and private contractors the best security available for the destruction of their top secret documents. Here are a few great reasons that you should check out the Dahle 20434 today.

Security. Offering a security level of 6, which is the highest available on the market, the 20434 is designed for use by the military, government, and research organizations that require the destruction of top secret documents on a regular basis. Though this level of security might be viewed as “over the top” for the average business, if you run a private sector enterprise that regularly contracts with the military or some governmental agencies, the 20434 can provide you with the National Security Agency-approved security that is required by these organizations. The fact that your business either has such a machine on site, or intends to purchase one, might look good on a bid proposal as well. Superior Cutting System. The 20434 is a serious shredder that employs a set of cutting heads that are perfectly matched and milled from a single solid bar of the world’s finest steel. Along with the 20434’s non slip chain and gear system, these remarkably durable and precise cutting heads are what enable this machine to reduce the average sheet of paper to over 15,500 tiny, never to be read again particles. The cutting heads themselves are guaranteed for one year, and the rest of the working parts of the 20434 are covered by a two year warranty. Ease of Use. The 20434 employs a single toggle switch system that allows the user to choose between automatic on an off (using an electronic sensor that detects when you place papers in the feed opening and starts the machine), continuous run (for bigger jobs), and reverse ( in case of a paper jam or overfeed). With the single switch you will always know what operational mode the machine is in. The 20434 will also let you know when the waste bin is full and needs to be emptied, and, for safety’s sake, will shut itself off when the cabinet door is opened. Sheet Capacity. You’ll often find that as shredder security levels increase, their sheet capacity diminishes. The 20434 can handle a respectable 8 sheets at a time, meaning that you won’t have to sacrifice productivity when you opt for a high security shredder in this case. The feed opening width of 9.5 inches will easily accommodate both letter and legal sized sheets, and the 1/2Hp motor operates at a speed of 13 feet per minute. Low Noise. No matter what the size and scope of your office is, it’s always a good thing to keep the distractions caused by noise to a minimum. The 20434 gives you whisper quiet operation by encasing the cutting heads and placing the frame on shock mounts. This way, the level of vibration to the noise-deadened, all-wood cabinet is virtually eliminated.

If you are interested in more information about the Dahle 20434 High-Security Shredder, you might want to visit MyBinding.com. They offer a great price on this machine and they even offer Free Shipping. Plus, they carry the full line of Dahle Paper Shredders, shredder bags and shredder oil. Check it out today!
