    Taxes Go Up When Idiots Won't Stop Suing

    The district's attorney's billing must be astronomically high, where does this "fucking" money come from but the people in the district. Even single people are being monetarily punished by this frivolous continuous suing. The district sounds like Trumpians who won't take losses of suits, yet keep suing with no evidence of harm. They try to deny the right of students to express themselves outside of the school's jurisdiction. Someone at the county level must reign this lawless school districts officials who can't stand loosing even at the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. B.L. did not give up the 1st Amendment protection by being a student in this district. Its a small county with limited funds, yet SCOTUS appeal will cost a fortune to the county. They should let the public know the legal costs so far, which should shock everyone!

    Free Speech in Australia Is Not Possible

    I expected this bill's wording from the "People's" Republic Of China or the Russian Federation but not Australia. So politicians whose job is supposed to be crafting laws we are to live under should have done a better job. Seems they left the law writing to the farmers' legal team to make it all-encompassing and definitely vague.

    Censorship is abhorrent to freedom and information is the currency of democracy. "I am opposed to any form of tyranny over the mind of man." Thomas Jefferson
    So to prevent mistreatment of animals or sending sick animals that cannot walk to slaughter, we make speaking about these things illegal. Silence the whistleblower because PROFIT is more important than the quality of the food supply sold to the world. Everyone knows profit is king over everything else especially the rights of people. Sad that Australia has become a Trumplike continent. Money and more money and we make the laws vague and all-encompassing and put people in prison and then litigate later. Hope Australia doesn't become more like America where the rule of law is overridden by profits.

    Equal Protection Under Law is B S

    When DOJ becomes a political tool of the govt, then Equal Protection Under Law is a joke and embarrasses me when I call myself an American. Having dual citizenship, my European view of American news shows how shocking the DOJ has become a political tool to demonize a critic of the current administration. Who does the government work for? It is Big business and political; contributors who have bought this government. Contempt of Congress and the ignoring court orders has become the norm and everyday events. Mueller's report should have been distilled into a few documents that clear up the MASSIVE amount of facts into more manageable and understandable documents. Mueller document is like trying to learn English by giving someone the Encyclopedia Britannica.

    Popcorn Moments Nationwide (as Montyw)

    Revere isn't the only municipality stealing under the guise of statute. Leased cars, property that are not owned by a person or corporation are routinely seized with no intention of return to the owner. From the sound of this case there wasn't a felony conviction, but wouldn't imprisonment be punishment enough. Anything seems justified under these statutes to increase the police budgets by illegal seizures.

    The abuses of these illegal "seizures" is known world-wide. All under the guise of the INSANE policy of the war on drugs. This war as typical of American policies keeps morphing as time goes on. There is no way we can ever win a war on drugs. We should have learned with Prohibition on alcohol. It made criminal empires that last to today! Why does "our" government seem to want us to keep surrendering our liberties to be "safe", another scare tactic.

    Forfeitures Civil vs Criminal

    Eliminate civil Forfeiture and only allow criminal Forfeiture. When a defendant is found guilty, only then can forfeiture a start. This may curtail the rampant legalized theft written into our laws when hysteria had taken over lawmakers and the public was fed lie upon lie to justify this theft and mass incarcerations. Civil forfeiture nearly always favors the police and an innocent will be legally be robbed blind!

    Police Feel They Are Above the LAW

    Americans are have become so frightened of "crime" they have given police unprecedented powers or the police believe they HAVE such power. Police threaten citizens with arrest, illegally arrest citizens, seize their property, cameras, cell phones, etc. while legally recording police activity. Citizens are exercising their Constitutionally protected rights, but police have little concern for the rights of civilians. Without effective oversight other than the court action by the public against illegal police activity and abuse of power, this illegal activity will continue unchecked and citizens have little recourse from prosecuting attornies or judges.

    Costs to Threaten & They SHOULD Know Better!

    'Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.'
    How much will this cost California Taxpayers & students to defend a countersuit on a sour-grapes legal attack by UCLA? Doesn't UCLA have legal support to ensure threats are not going to backfire? Does UCLA know what 1st Amendment says yet? FIRE should go for punitive damages for the threats on a second legal threat so close to the 2009 suit and websites where no UCLA "brand" confusion exists. The UCLA president and those responsible for these threats have to explain why 1st Amendment violations keep happening. There may be many other of these strong arms tactics that have been filed and people silenced and their rights violated. I give UCLA management a Grade of "F" on 1st Amendment and "F" on public relations!

    Technical Idiots Making Laws is Very Bad

    Since the lawmakers are in the pockets of copyright industries, we should not expect critical thinking skills from these morons. Legislators are con-men(women). Convincing unsuspecting voters they have the publics best interest at heart is such a lie that voters swallow these lies hook, line, and sinker!
    VOTE VOTE VOTE and put in people who will work for the PEOPLE and not big business as is done in the USA currently. Hopefully, minority parties will make more gains and have a bigger impact on laws rather than business owning the government.

    Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Director JOHN DOWDY

    This guy JOHN DOWDY needs to be held to accounts by the Feds. but given the rule of lawlessness in the Washington Swamp, I see nothing good from the FBI. Cops can't investigate cops. Never worked before and never will in the future. We need independent oversight of police that is out of control police. The state's government laws have insulated police from even the egregious abuses of their power in murdering "suspects" on video. We can't depend on police who are there to enrich themselves and not to protect the public.

    **Miss. Seized Assets Database Doesnt Work**

    I went to the Miss. Dept Of Pub Safety website and there is a spot to click to search the asset forfeiture database. But the button doesn't work! The link to Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Seized Property Online Publications https://www.dps.state.ms.us/crime-investigation/bureau-of-narcotics/mississippi-bureau- of-narcotics-seized-property-online-publications/ takes you in a circle, to a page with a big blank box that says Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Seized Property Online Publications and nothing else. All Seized Property links take you in circles back to the few web pages that make this site. They seem to be going out of their way to prevent access to this database.

    Where Do The Fee $ Go???

    With all the fees added on to my cable bill, the question is WHERE does all this money go??? Is it pocketed by cable companies? It sure has not gotten me better cable nor Internet services. As a matter of fact, things are worse than ever. Internet connections fail constantly, customer service has no talent beyond a written script to fix things. Anything beyond simple problems is unfixable. On the TV side, they can't tell whether a program signal is actually being broadcast on the cable line when a program just shows a blank screen!!

    CABLE COMPANIES are probably the most hated industry we must deal with. Why are the cable monopolies without oversight by localities?

    Re: FOIA Ammendment

    Why does the US Marshals Service care about the LAWS they are BOUND to obey? US Marshall's Service of all government agencies should act even more secretive than Russian KGB or GRU. Stingray devices VIOLATE FCC law by interfering with vast areas of Cell Phone service when deploying the Harris Corp.'s Stingray device they acquired but deny having. Co-opting communications & illegal collection of cellular information of persons and corporations not under investigation by US Marshals Service are wholly illegal acts. The US Marshals Service flaunts the laws with tacit impunity of Department of Justice and the FCC. US Marshals Service shame all American law enforcement who do obey the laws they are charged to enforce on others and DO obey themselves.

Did you get this from Donald Trump to use OTM(Other People's Money)?
    Your credibility as a "news" source will be forever questioned.

    AF&T Temper Tantrums AGAIN?

    AT&T is trying to get even for the breakup of its monopoly countrywide into the baby bells. Where are NYNEX or Bell Atlantic or Pacific Tel? Anti-trust is a dirty word around every monopoly. The locations where AT&T doesn't serve is a monopoly for another cable co like Time Warner or Comcast. Aren't these poles on PUBLIC LAND to be used for the PUBLIC GOOD???
    Stupid restrictions prevent me in Palm Springs from getting any other stations outside of Palm Springs market area except for a 2 hour news block in early AM and rush-hour news casts from 5 PM till 7PM, Then these channels become shopping channels, The noon news is actually recycled morning news footage recorded at 8AM. And even says news report is LIVE saying the time is 808AM but in reality the clock reads 1208 PM, We have NO Los Angeles nor San Diego stations, San Diego which is closer, Our FCC need a good enema to get the crappy rulings from interfering with what RATE PAYERS WANT not the garbage packages we are FORCED to BUY. How many are PAYING to see things we dont want? Add on all these stupid fees & rulings from WW2 500 channels with the same thing being broadcast. Remember Bruce Springsteen song. "57 Channels and NOTHING ON..." is still true Now it has expanded to 500 channels and still NOTHING ON!

    US version of a Total Police State

    Does the 4th Amendment still matter to the public? The SCOTUS rulings ,non-rulings especially with a CRIPPLED court, have made most of the 4th amendment moot. Drones with hi-res. camera and cheap light high-powered computers plus facial recognition software makes everyone a target in our now police state. National security is thrown around so lightly to cover nearly every situation. Embarrass a politician, the FBI,local police, National Security is at stake, well anything can be covered by this term. PEOPLE must push back against this THEFT and PERVERSION of our Constitutional RIGHTS. The 9th amendment in the Bill of Rights should be invoked to protect the people over the state and federal authorities.

    Re: Local Law Trump State Law? In NYC Not Always

    NYC fine Parking in front of a pedestrian ramp $165!
    NYC has special deal with Albany on laws. They have a great leeway in overriding State law. Big example, handicap parking permit issued by STATE DMV is no good in NYC! You must get a special permit from NYC DOT & examined by their doctors before a permit is issued. NYC needs Albany approval to raise money & increase taxes. That is the ONLY thing that I know of where NYC isn't autonomous legally.
    The cops KNOW the parking laws and think that anyone who fights the ticket will be adjourned to death. The officer will claim he cant show in court because of work, judges, prosecutors cooperate to keep money from ticket, no matter what the law says.
    Each fine amount includes a $15 New York State Criminal Justice surcharge.
    These tickets hit the poor hardest since the fines are so high for minor infractions. $65 is the lowest traffic fine amount! General No Parking: No parking where parking is not allowed by sign, street marking or traffic control device. $65.00
    Parking at a broken or missing meter for longer than the maximum time permitted. $65
    "Feeding Meter" -- parking in a metered space for a consecutive period of time longer than allowed, whether or not an additional coin or coins are deposited or another method of payment is used. $65
    Expired Meter -- parking in a metered space where the meter works and the time has ended. $65
