(ANTIMEDIA)Los Angeles, CA — by Carey Wedler. Just days before the first Academy Awards ceremony since Hollywood was hit with allegations of rampant sexual harassment, assault, and pedophilia, a Los Angeles street artist made a bold statement just a few miles from the Dolby Theater where the Oscars will be held.
Sabo, a conservative-leaning artist who has previously tagged the city with art referencing former President Obama’s drones, purchased three billboards, echoing the sentiment of a Academy Award-nominated film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which tells the story of a mother who seeks accountability for her daughter’s rape and murder, which police in her small town have failed to solve.
LLANO, TX – All too often those who continuously apologize for crimes committed by police officers are able to justify some of the most egregious instances of outright murder by claiming the officer was a bad apple. Almost as often, however, as TFTPhas shown numerous times, the bad apple theory is exactly that—a theory—with no evidence to support it.
Illustrating the nature of the bad apple theory is the fact that four people in the Llano Police Department, including Police Chief Kevin Ratliff, have been arrested for being bad cops.
There are eight law enforcement officers employed by the Llano Police Department, according to the LPD’s website, meaning that half of the police force has been indicted.
Does that seem like “one bad apple,” or a potentially much greater problem?
The indictments stem from a massive civil rights violation of a single man.
via Free Thought Project – Every driver who was issued a red light camera ticket in New Miami, Ohio will be refunded after an appeals court ruled the fines to be unconstitutional.
New Miami, OH — In a time where there are daily attacks on the US constitution, a glimmer of hope has arisen in New Miami, Ohio as the state appeals court ruled in the favor of the citizens. All drivers who were sent one of the town’s ‘unconstitutional’ speed camera tickets will be getting a refund thanks to a court system that protected freedom instead of the state.
The court ruled that the $3 million in fines stolen from drivers with no due process was all obtained illegally and they must now pay it back.
Hyperinflation has driven thousands to seek out unorthodox currency.
From The Atlantic.com – Rene Chun In Venezuela, home to some of the worst hyperinflation since the Weimar Republic, a Big Mac costs about half a month’s wages. Or rather, it did, until a bread shortage forced the burger off the menu. The annual inflation rate is expected to hit 1,600 percent. Life resembles an old newsreel: long lines, empty shelves, cashiers weighing stacks of bills.
To survive, thousands of Venezuelans have taken to minería bitcoin—mining bitcoin, the cryptocurrency. Lend computer processing power to the blockchain (the bitcoin network’s immense, decentralized ledger) and you will be rewarded with bitcoin. To contribute more data-crunching power, and earn more bitcoin, people operate racks of specialized computers known as “miners.” Whether a mining operation is profitable hinges on two main factors: bitcoin’s market value—which has hit record highs this year—and the price of electricity, needed to run the powerful hardware.
The entire police force of Sand Point, Alaska quit in July in a matter of just three weeks, leaving the town without any authoritative presence, and the transition has been smooth without any type of state enforcement agent.
Sand Point, an Alaskan island town with a population of about 1,000, had a police force of three officers and a police chief mid-July.
That’s when the officers, two of whom were a married couple, began to quit one after the other and then finally the police chief himself resigned.
City Administrator Andrew Varner said that the first officer wanted to be closer to a spouse who is in the military. A week later, two more officers, a married couple, left because of a “family decision.”
That left Sand Point police chief, Roger Bacon, who then decided to take a long-planned month-long vacation to Scotland. This decision cost him his job as a “mutual understanding” was reached between Bacon and the city council that if he left he wouldn’t be returning to his post.
The month of April is a nightmare for anyone with a conscience, as we only have until “tax day” — which usually falls on April 15 — to give the taxman what he says he deserves. So if you pay taxes to Uncle Sam and you’re also aware you’re paying for mass murder in the Middle East and in U.S. streets due to the drug war, you should also feel sick to your stomach as you write that check.
To a restaurant customer, this may have served as enough incentive to remind his server that taxation is always immoral — but he didn’t stop there.
The “LAW” -which is then rewritten!!! as a statutory CODE- that stops “propaganda” on the web only applies to US CITIZENS.
So despite the CORPORATE Media literally claiming that its Russian Propaganda stories are CORPORATE PROPAGANDA, it is the alternative media free speech that is being legalized/fictionalized and then made illegal.
Even loan by every bank is fraud and does not need to be paid back. Indeed, to pay back any loan is literally a double payment… put another way extortion.
Given that bankers only create the principle in every loan but not the interest, there is perpetually more debt owed than exists in the system. The rate of debt creation and extinguishing thus determine the perceived wealth of the population.
It doesn’t take long for the governmental services corporations to “enforce corporate policy” called “legal laws” in order to create new debts for its own benefits and the personal benefit of its agents. The UNITED STATES, INC is engaged in asymmetric legal war-fare against and upon the human beings because it takes many years to gain “justice.” Meanwhile, the judges and attorneys are creating mega-bucks with debt out of nothing in each COURTROOM CASE (constructive trust). These corporate statutory courtrooms of the UNITED STATES, and each STATE is nothing than the mere “appearance of justice” (according to the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure – Rule 44).
