Baby Bou-Bou and the War on Drugs

bouphonesavanh01

Last week, a horrifying incident occurred in Habersham county. Cops on a drug raid tossed a flash-bang grenade into a house they were raiding when they found something blocking the door. That thing was a crib and inside the crib was 19-month-old Bounkham Phonesavanh. He’s now in critical condition after suffering severe chest and face wounds and burns when his crib caught fire. Doctors give him only a 50 percent chance of survival. One lung … Read more

The Other Prohibition

All of us are familiar with Prohibition, the attempt to ban the sale and manufacture of alcohol in this country. Very few would disagree that it was an unmitigated disaster. It created a spike in crime, empowered criminals and smugglers and did little to stop drinking (and I hope you celebrated Repeal Day last week).

This post is not about alcohol prohibition, but I raise it to point out some of the traits it shares … Read more

Book Review: Rise of the Warrior Cop

I’m kicking off a new feature in my blogging: reviews of books or movies I think are relevant to current issues and events. I’ve made occasional oblique references to books like Three Felonies a Day or Declaration of Independents. But this will be a little more in depth. Not anticipating this will happen often.

On this blog, I regularly link to the work done by Radley Balko so it won’t surprise anyone that I … Read more

More IRS shenannigans; LSM mute, crooks not fazed.

I am sad to say that the revelation that the IRS illegally looked at tax information for political enemies of this administration doesn’t even faze me anymore. It’s not new news. It was actually blatantly obvious during the campaign based on numerous claims made by Team Obama and other Team Blue hit men. This is the Chicago way. These are criminals running the country right now, and they will do anything to keep their power. … Read more

If you still doubt that the Zimmerman trial is not politically motivated

Check out what happened to yet another whistleblower that showed that the Florida States Attorney’s office was doing shady shit. From the article:

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial,

A get out of jail free card

If you are connected and make the right kind of donations. I am not surprised. Corzine will walk for the same reason. These are people that funneled a lot of that money they had to the right democrats, including Black Jesus, so the DOJ is going to not bother with them.

We no longer are a nation of laws I tell you. There is one set of laws so these very people giving their … Read more

The Keystone Cops of Cannabis

Pivoting from Alex’s post on the need for new legal frameworks in the post-legalization era, I wanted to talk about the Obama Administration floating some trial balloons on how they are going to respond to Washington and Colorado legalizing pot.

It’s not promising.

One option is for federal prosecutors to bring some cases against low-level marijuana users of the sort they until now have rarely bothered with, waiting for a defendant to make a motion

Bloomberg Call for Chaos

Uber Nanny Stater Michael Bloomberg was the first to politicize the tragedy in Aurora. It makes sense that Bloomberg would be in favor of gun control: petty men who want to control every aspect of their citizens’ lives hate the idea of an armed citizenry. But now he’s taken it a step further into douchebaggery:

Mayor Bloomberg opened a new front in the war over firearms when he went on TV to call on cops

Your Christ Christie Common Sense Porn of the Day

After a rough week with the Presidential candidates … man, I could use me some Chris Christie “common sense porn”.

I don’t see 100% eye-to-eye with the Governor on drugs, since he opposes medical marijuana and decriminalization. But the idea of treatment over prison for non-violent drug offenders is so sensible, so humane, so … conservative that I was honestly moved by his words.

2016, Chris. We’re waiting for you.… Read more

OWS Riot Open Thread

It got ugly last night in Oakland and Atlanta.

Protesters are blaming the police; police are blaming the protesters. My bias is toward free speech and against cops busting it up. They Oakland cops have already been caught fibbing about the use of flash-bangs. We’ll see what comes out.… Read more
