    For Christmas each year I treat my family to Christmas show(s). We are staying in Lancaster PA this weekend for a long weekend to see several Christmas events. I found an Amish guest house on an Amish farm for lodging. This Amish family seems really nice. But there are 2 dogs out in a cold garage with no heat and no blankets. One is a recent Mama- her nipples are still showing. She's literally shivering: her eyes are red, there's mucous coming out of her nose and she smells pretty bad. They are laying on the cold ground. They are also separated where they can barely see each other (the male is in a pen where he cannot get out). The recent Mama jumped into my arms shivering and wanted me to keep hugging her. It's 21 degrees out there; it snowed tonight. I know Libertarians believe animals are "private property" and the owners can do anything they want to to animals. This is where I need to step aside and disagree: this is a life form that suffers and feels pain. Lancaster PA. apparently doesn't have an animal control officer or animal shelters like we have in Maryland. What would you do? As someone who always believed the Amish treated their animals like family, it's heartbreaking to witness this. Here's what I found out about Lancaster County PA.: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/pets/Whos-protecting-the-animals-of-Lancaster-County-No-one.html

    Looks like the ACLU are adding their voice to the conversation. Which does bring up the question: Brailsford cannot be tried again for murder in AZ because of "double jeopardy". But could the Feds charge him with violation of Shaver's civil liberties? https://www.aclu.org/blog/criminal-law-reform/reforming-police-practices/youre-fucked-acquittal-officer-brailsford-and#comments-top

    He apparently was showing two other people he met at the hotel his pesticide gun. Maybe the hotel room was dark and he could see more clearly closer to the window and he didn't want to aim it at the other people in his room so he aimed it out the window? Since the pesticide gun was used to kill birds that get in grocery stores, maybe he was aiming it at a bird outside? He was on the 5th floor and presumably pointing it out straight, not down toward people. If the state is open carry, and hunters who kill quail and doves regularly pack hotel rooms in Mesa Arizona with rifles to the point that hotels give their hunting guests rags to clean their rifles, I would think it would be unusual for people in that area to get upset with seeing a gun unless that gun was actually pointed at people on the ground. I don't think this was the case here and i don't think police even checked before running into the hotel to see if he was still pointing a gun out the window. My gut says by the time cops got to the hotel, Shaver had finished showing his guests his pesticide gun and had put it away. This whole case is ridiculous and horrifying.

    Yes, i completely agree. Too many opportunities for videos to be "edited" or otherwise withheld from evidence if not streamed live to a public archive site.

    ^^^This. (+ rep). That has been my belief all along. Where does the "innocent until proven guilty" even come in here? Pointing a gun out the window in an open carry state is not the same thing as shooting it or pointing it at people. Did the police even look from the outside first to see if he was still pointing a gun out the window when they got there? My gut says they didn't.

    Black Lives Matter Supporters Call Attention to Graphic Video of Arizona Shooting "Consider that Shaver might well be alive if only the Mesa police department had long ago adopted reforms of the sort that Black Lives Matter suggests." Black Lives Matter activists were among those who used social media on Friday and Saturday to call attention to the case of Daniel Shaver, a 26-year-old man who was shot to death by a police officer in Mesa, Arizona in January 2016. A disturbing, graphic video of the shooting was released shortly after the officer who killed Shaver, who was white, was acquitted of second-degree murder. The video shows Shaver following the officer's instructions to crawl toward him and begging him not to shoot.

if modern agriculture continues to follow the path it's on now, it's finished. The food-growing situation may seem to be in good shape today, but that's just an illusion based on the current availability of petroleum fuels. All the wheat, corn, and other crops that are produced on big American farms may be alive and growing, but they're not products of real nature or real agriculture. They're manufactured rather than grown. The earth isn't producing those things.. petroleum is! -Masanobu Fukuoka
