“SWAT teams have been infiltrated by bullies with badges and guns who foster a mentality that killing criminals reduces recidivism”
Former sheriff: 'I felt betrayed by my profession'
Davis County, UT — William “Dub” Lawrence is a former city police officer, former US Marine, and former Sheriff of Davis County, who has awakened to the reality of Police State USA. Sadly this awakening was sparked by the murder of his son-in-law by a SWAT team that he created.
In September 2008, he watched helplessly as the same SWAT team he helped create over 30 years earlier shot and killed Brian Wood, his 36-year-old son-in-law.
Since this horrible atrocity, Lawrence has become a leader of the growing police reform movement... Continued...

The Regime in Washington is the only government asserting the supposed right to carry out summary executions anywhere on the face of the globe, so we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that it also claims the right to impose “sanctions” on foreign citizens who publicly criticize it. On March 11, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added Russian academic Alexander Dugin to its roster of “individuals and entities to be sanctioned over Russia’s interference in Ukraine.”
This decree means that any property belonging to Dugin that is within
Oregon – home of things uber trendy – has become the first state to begin dunning motorists by the mile rather than by the gallon.
The “pilot” program begins July 1 — and will be implemented by the Oregon DOT in partnership with something called Sanef ITS Technologies America and Intelligent Mechatronic Systems. Sounds a lot like Cyberdyne Systems from the Terminator movies, doesn’t it?
And the similarities run a lot deeper than that.

Most people have seen the number floating around social media that suggests that citizens are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist, but new data revisions suggest this number was dramatically underestimated.
The lack of accurate official records being kept in the important category of individuals killed by police was met with numerous efforts by citizens. One example, in particular, is www.killedbypolice.net. This site is used to more accurately track the number of people killed by cops yearly.
Washington (CNN)No, D.C.'s children will not get off your lawn, America.
That was the message they delivered Thursday with an impromptu "sled-in" on the grounds of the Capitol, defying a sledding ban that the chairman of the Capitol Police board had said Wednesday night he couldn't lift.
Board Chairman Frank Larkin said "unfortunately, the board cannot grant exceptions to the Traffic Regulations for the United States Capitol Grounds," which bans sledding, and other forms of fun, on the grassy knoll surrounding the building.
Gunfire damaged a National Security Agency building in Maryland, the U.S. Park Police said.
There were reports of shots fired near the agency's Fort Meade headquarters in the Washington D.C. suburbs Tuesday, and Park Police spokeswoman Sgt. Lelani Woods said it does not appear they came from the nearby Baltimore-Washington Parkway.
A section of the commuter roadway was closed Tuesday night for investigation.
The FBI took over the case Tuesday night, but the NSA confirmed no one was injured in the apparent shooting.
America has become a nation of, by and for control freaks – populated by the people I style Clovers. If they don’t like something, if they want something, if they don’t want people doing something, they will casually urge that violence be deployed to make the necessary adjustments. This has become so reflexive that it is now unconscious and people – most of them – think nothing of it. Because, truth be told, they don’t think of it at all. Which isn’t an accident. Public (that is, government) schools do not raise the question:
“I’m trying not to hate, but rather to enjoy the beauty we can see in life,” observes Scott Molen. That worthy sentiment is all the more remarkable coming from someone whose life has been permanently disfigured by the State’s proprietary brand of ugliness.
In June 2007, Scott was convicted in Ada County, Idaho of “lewd and lascivious conduct” with his step-granddaughter and sentenced to 20 years in prison. The case presented against Scott consisted of the uncorroborated, self-contradictory testimony of the young accuser. The prosecution quite thoughtfully kept their presentation otherwise uncluttered by evidence.
WASHINGTON - About 800,000 HealthCare.gov customers got the wrong tax information from the government, the Obama administration said Friday, and officials are asking those affected to delay filing their 2014 returns.
The tax mistake is a self-inflicted injury that comes on the heels of what President Barack Obama had touted as a successful enrollment season, with about 11.4 million people signed up.
California, which is running its own insurance market, on Thursday announced a similar problem affecting about 100,000 people in that state.
The errors mean that nearly 1 million people may have to wait longer
The good Affordable Care Act news is that 6.7 million people got health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges in 2014.
The bad Affordable Care Act news is that millions who got a government subsidy to help pay for that coverage could face unwelcome tax surprises at filing time.
Just about everyone will have to do some tax task related to the ACA -- even if only checking a box on their Form 1040. For the folks who got coverage through a state or the federal marketplace, there will be new tax reporting documents to hang on to, extra work sheets and forms to fill out and, in some cases, smaller
By Will Grigg -- Robert Foster was in the company of his family during the early morning hours of January 16 when his depleted body surrendered his indomitable spirit into eternity. At his bedside were found his Bible and the pocket-sized copy of the US Constitution he always carried with him.
The disease that put Bob into a hospice in Bend, Oregon made its presence known just weeks before he passed away. Cancer of the liver is difficult to detect until it has reached a stage at which it is almost impossible to cure.
There is a chance, albeit an exceedingly small one, that Bob's prospects for survival would have been better if he hadn't been forced to spend the past
Soon, you won’t even be able to toss a gym bag on the back seats. Well, not if you want to avoid the dreaded – and relentless – “buckle up for safety” buzzer. Which the government is about to mandate shall be wired into the back seats now, too.
For the children.
There is, you see, an epidemic (well, they want you to so see) of kiddies who furtively unbuckle themselves – unbeknownst to the parents up front. This, the Safety Cult cannot abide. Hence – and even if you don’t have kids – your next car (assuming you’re still willing to buy one) will come with the buckle-up buzzer in
