    Nevada’s top judge recently had to appear before state lawmakers asking for more money for the state Supreme Court, apparently because law enforcement officers aren’t writing enough traffic tickets.

    Chief Justice James Hardesty testified before a joint Senate Finance and Ways and Means subcommittee, during which he told the panel that the court needed $700,000 by May 1 or it will be out of money. “Do you want me to close the judicial branch of government at the state level on May 1?” Hardesty said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    He added that law enforcement is not generating the same amount of revenue from traffic tickets as it once did, and that’s robbing the high court of funds for operations. “I’m not faulting law enforcement; either they are understaffed

    If you see something, they’ll pay something.

    Two city lawmakers want to recruit everyday New Yorkers to help battle the scourge of idling vehicles by paying them for video footage that results in fines.

    City Council members Helen Rosenthal (D-Manhattan) and Donovan Richards (D-Queens) will introduce a bill Wednesday that would give citizens up to 50 percent of the summons revenue if they catch someone breaking the idling law, take a video and submit it to the Department of Environmental Protection.

    The exact cut for videographers would be determined by the DEP, they said. But citizen enforcers could makes hundreds — even thousands — of dollars.

    The bill would keep first-time idling violations punishable by just a warning, but would

    Dang bullets are just flying around, going about their business, when boom, someone that's mentally ill steps in front of one.

    A tweet by the NYPD's Twitter guru created a brief social media revolt on Monday.

    The tweet — "People off their meds r losing it &wlking into police bullets" — by Zachary Tumin, deputy commissioner of strategic initiatives, referred to a report that said a lack of mental health services has led to more mentally ill people being killed by police across the country.

    I think everyone should be saving towards the next election cycle. Absolutely! I believe everyone should begin saving up to the max donation allowed of $2600.

    There has been much, often heated, discourse on whether or not to contribute during the next election cycle. There are many pros and cons put forth by both sides with the deciding factor, IMHO, being an individuals personal preference towards the cause of liberty.

    So, what to do if you decide NOT to give to the next liberty contender?

    I recommend the following two choices.

    Rifle ( or rifle/sidearm combo) > $1200
    Ammo > $500
    Training expenses > $200 (Appleseed RBC course plus travel cost)
    Bug out bag > $400

    RIVIERA BEACH (CBSMiami) — A 90-year old’s home was destroyed by police conducting a raid but it appears they got the wrong house.
    The elderly woman shared her story of terror and what police are doing to clean up the mess.

    She’s called Riviera Beach home for 25 years, but back on December 18th around 1 p.m., the 90-year-old woman, who asked not to be identified, had some uninvited guests.

    “I don’t know how the cops got in here. The noise woke me up when something said boom! Like a bomb or something,” said the 90-year old.

    There was shattered glass, a busted door, and traces of a flash bang device.

    Riviera Beach Police said after evidence of criminal activity, they got a search warrant.

    ..the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, And Firearms wants to reclassify common SS109/M855 5.56 NATO ammunition as “armor-piercing” and ban it from import, manufacture, or sale.

    The cartridge had previously been classified “exempt” from the ban on so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition.

    ATLANTA (CBS46) -
    Carrie Mills is a retired Atlanta Police officer with 30 years on the job - primarily in APD's drug unit.

    Mills is now a union rep for the International Brotherhood of Police Officers. She considers herself an expert on search warrants, particularly no knock warrants, which allows officers to enter a structure without knocking first.

    Mills says no-knock warrants helped close a lot of cases while she was an officer.

    "If we knock and announced, all evidence is going to be destroyed," Mills said.

    The New York Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, the NYPD's union, has issued this statement following the deaths of two police officers in an ambush:

    "Starting IMMEDIATELY: At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be.

    “IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest.

    HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
    Chad Chadwick has something many citizens can only covet - a spotless record.

    "These cops are out of control. They are ruining good people's lives. I am a good man. I have done everything I can to show that, as a father, as a citizen, as a worker," said Chadwick.

    But on the night of September 27th, 2011 Chadwick's commitment to living within the law did him no good at all.

    It started when a friend concerned for Chadwick's emotional well-being called Missouri City police to Chad's Sienna apartment where he'd been distraught, drinking and unknown to anyone, had gone to sleep in the bathtub.

    A SWAT team was summoned.

    Five days before our client Eric Garner was killed, weeks before Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, and months before New Yorkers swarmed the city demanding justice for victims of police violence, another forty-something-year-old black man, Jeff Thomas, was severely beaten by Staten Island police in broad daylight. It happened on the same block where police choked Garner to death. This too was captured on video. Watch it on YouTube.

    As the families of Amadou Diallo, Ernest Sayon, Ramarley Graham, Patrick Dorismond, Kenneth Chamberlain, Akai Gurley, Anthony Baez and Sean Bell know, police abuse is nothing new. Eric Garner knew it. Jeff Thomas, the man assaulted on the video, knows it too.

    CA Cop is Being Fired for NOT Using Violence to Resolve a Situation

    By Matt Agorist on December 7, 2014

    Seaside, CA — A 20 year veteran of the CSU Monterey Bay police force, was given a notice of termination this week for choosing NOT to immediately resort to violent escalation during a confrontation with a suicidal student.

    The unidentified officer was the first one on the scene when responding to an incident involving a suicidal college student in his CSUMB dorm room in February of this year. The officer showed an heartening level of restraint when dealing with a student, who was in his room with a knife and hammer, and was also threatening to light himself on fire.

    “He was clearly a danger to himself and he was in crisis,” Marina Police Chief Edmundo Rodriguez said. “We were trying to keep him from accessing the weapons or leave, to get him medical attention.”

    Instead of immediately resorting to violence, this officer was talking the student down and de-escalating the situation. The officer was successful in calming the student down and was going to get him a glass of water when the Marina police department showed up, and immediately began tasering the student.

    The campus officer refused to taser the student, as he did not perceive a threat. Subsequently Rodriguez’s department later issued a “failure to act” complaint against the campus officer, accusing him of not engaging in a “highly agitated situation.”

    Saratoga County Deputy Shawn Glans had no idea he was being recorded as he tried to intimidate a man into allowing him to search his car, which is why he slapped him on the back of his head while yanking the keys out of his hand, tossing them to another deputy who searched the man's car and found nothing illegal.

    But he does know now after Adam Roberts uploaded the video to Facebook where it began going viral Friday.

    In a Facebook message interview with Photography is Not a Crime, Roberts explained that he and his buddy, Colin Fitch, who owns the car, had parked it at a business that was closed and walked to a nearby party Thursday night. They didn’t spend much time at the party but when they walked back to the car, they were confronted by deputies who had spotted a rifle in the back seat and wanted to search the car.

    Firth had purchased a .22 rifle earlier that day and had left it in the back seat, Roberts said. When Deputy Glans asked to search the car, Fitch would not give him permission, insisting he had done nothing illegal.

    Unfortunately, that slapping part was not caught on video, but the sound of the slap is loud and clear. But he followed it up by making more threats, proving to be the real asshole.

    As they were searching the car, Firth showed them his receipt for the gun and they allowed him to leave.

    IN PRINCE George’s County, it is now clear that the police, without provocation, can beat an unarmed young student senseless — with impunity. They can blatantly lie about it — with impunity. They can stonewall and cover it up for months — with impunity. They can express no remorse and offer no apology — with impunity.

    The agent of this travesty of justice, and this impunity, is Judge Beverly J. Woodard of the Prince George’s County Circuit Court. Ms. Woodard has presided in the case involving John J. McKenna, a young University of Maryland student who was savagely beaten by two baton-wielding Prince George’s cops in March 2010, following a men’s basketball game on the College Park campus.
