  2. Georgia cops fired Taser 13 times ‘as a cattle prod’ to make tired man walk before he died http://t.co/T2fE40brww ~~~ St. Paul cops violently arrest and taser black man waiting to pick up his kids from daycare for allegedly sitting in a public space and refusing to give up his name http://t.co/GsRFYrGfQF Minnesota does not have a 'stop and identify' statute in place that would give police the right to arrest someone for not identifying himself.

  3. Handcuffed Black Youth Shot Himself to Death, Says Coroner ~~~ Video shows police shot Ohio man ‘on sight’ as he was leaning on a toy gun, talking on a cell phone, and facing away from officers in Walmart, attorney says ~~~ Dashcam video clears NJ man; Cops now indicted This video was only turned over by Bloomfield police after Jeter's attorney filed a request for records; at the time prosecutors were insistent that Jeter do prison time. As soon as Prosecutors saw this video, they dismissed all of the charges against Jeter. Interesting to note, an investigation by Bloomfield PD's scandal plagued internal affairs division had found no wrongdoing by officers. My favorite part is when out of nowhere the cop starts yelling, 'Stop grabbing for my gun, stop grabbing for my gun. Stop resisting arrest." while the guy's hands are in the air.

  5. 'Your courage is inspiring': Man kicked out by his parents after he came out as gay is able to start new life after website raises $50,000 to help him Daniel Ashley Pierce, 20, from Georgia was disowned by his parents He filmed the moment he came out as gay and the video has gone viral It has attracted 1,876,137 views on YouTube and messages of support A GoFundMe page has raised $48,808 from 1,852 people in one day A 20-year-old who was kicked out by his religious parents after he came out as gay has received almost $50,000 in donations to help him start a new life. Daniel Ashley Pierce, from Kennesaw, Georgia, secretly filmed the moment he was disowned by his family and the YouTube video has attracted almost two million views in two days. The five-minute clip titled 'How not to react when your child tells you that he's gay' has prompted hundreds of supportive responses on YouTube and donations have been pouring in. In the video a woman, believed to be his mother, is heard saying: 'I have known that you were gay since you were a tiny boy. 'You have made a choice from what you've told your daddy. You can deny all you want to but I believe in the word of God and he does not create anybody that way.' Mr Pierce responds saying that he was born this way and has not made a choice, but his family does not back down. He tells his family he believes that 'scientific proof trumps the word of God'. But his mother responds saying: 'You will need to move out and find whenever you can to live. Because I will not let anyone believe that I condone what you want to do. 'You told me on the phone that you made that choice. You know you wasn't born that way. You know good and well you made that choice. 'You know that your father has done everything he can to raise you. He didn't need to blame himself.' Mr Pierce then asks his mother if he can stay in the house, but she refuses and the argument becomes more heated. His boyfriend set up a GoFundMe page to help Mr Pierce with living expenses after he was kicked out. It raised $48,808 in one day from 1,819 people donating. He said: 'I didn't realise that this was even set up for me. I don't even know how to thank y'all. 'I wish I could give each and everyone of you a huge hug. I was trying to respond to everyone but I couldn't keep up. Thank you.' Roberta Randazzo commented on the page saying: 'Be proud of yourself, it takes a lot of courage to do a thing like that. 'I lived in a **** like that for five years and I can completely understand you, go on with you own life and don't let them break your dreams.' Rebecca Hall said: 'I'm sorry for how your parents treated you. You are not a disgrace. Your family are the disgrace. 'I would never treat my child the way you have been treated. My mother is Christian and when my brother 'came out' she accepted it with love and told him that his actions and sexuality are between him and God. 'It is both sad and inspiring that strangers have shown more love and support than your own family.'

  8. I don't think it actually dissolves the stones though, does it? Cause I don't think my insurance company would've paid $40k+ twice for me to have lithotripsy if I could've just taken a pill.
  9. The current version of that AP story does not include any of the text after “they apparently had been followed by more than 20 people.” Instead, it has this, not noted by Hoft: “From what we have seen from surveillance video and from what other witnesses say, it doesn’t appear it’s going to be nearly that many,” [West Point police Chief Tim] Brinkley said..... DeBeery was especially skeptical of how the group of “as many as seven men” in the WCBI report grew into a mob of 20 in Knighten’s retelling. And then there’s the extent of Weems’s injuries: according to Weems’s brother-in-law, Weems was in a medically induced coma following brain surgery … but according to the hospital spokeswoman in the same AP story carried by the Times-Picayune, Weems was in “fair” condition. Says DeBeery, I don’t know if that contradicts his relative’s report that he had had brain surgery, but if “fair condition” can include a medically induced coma, then the phrase has no real meaning.Read more at Wonkette: http://wonkette.com/...b#ixzz3BWkBtHod
  10. I've never heard of such. Are you thinking about lithotripsy?
  11. The cop was only convicted twelve years ago. Forget the gun for a minute, why is he already back out on the street? How many nonviolent offenders were locked up before the cop and still remain incarcerated to this day? Our society is disgusting.
  12. What does someone have to do in order to lose gun rights in Georgia? Apparently, sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint—even threatening to anally penetrate her with the gun—is not enough. Ian Millhiser at ThinkProgress reports on the shocking case of Dennis Krauss, a now former police officer who was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 1999 who had called 911 to complain that her husband was beating her. According to the appeals court decision that upheld Krauss' conviction, instead of helping the woman, Krauss threatened to take her to jail if she didn't have sex with him. Krauss checked them into a motel room while the woman sat terrified, thinking she was under arrest, in the car. "I had to, I was afraid to leave, he, you know, he is a police officer;  you don't just leave," the victim explained. Once he had her in the motel room, according to the 2003 appeals court decision, "Krauss took his gun from his gun belt and told the victim he wanted to have anal sex with her with the gun." Then he pushed her, pulled off her pants, and raped her. Despite Krauss' sexual assault conviction, the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles restored his right to carry a firearm in July 2013. This is coming to light now because the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has published an exposé of the Georgia courts' tendency to restore gun privileges to convicted felons. The Journal-Constitution counted 358 violent felons who were able to regain gun rights in a six-year period, 32 who killed someone and 44 who were convicted of sex crimes. Krauss was not only convicted of this particular sexual assault, but had a record that "was filled with allegations of misconduct," according to the Journal-Constitution. The allegations: "that he beat a prisoner so severely the man’s brain bled; that he threatened to fabricate charges against a suspect so he could sleep with the man’s wife; that he pressured at least 10 women for sex to avoid arrest." Last week, the Charleston Post and Courier published a major investigative report on how a conservative culture that puts an emphasis on gun rights but not on women's rights has led to South Carolina's high domestic homicide rate. This case suggests that Georgia is suffering from a similar problem of skewed priorities, allowing the gun lobby to run rampant over not just women's rights but basic common sense. Surely keeping guns out of the hands of men who are convicted of sexual assault at gunpoint is not too big an ask. http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/08/25/georgia_restores_gun_rights_to_a_former_cop_convicted_of_sexually_assaulting.html
  13. FWIW my Jewish friends either don't care about Israel or they criticize the country's actions.
