Protecting Or Bullying? Cop Posing As Student Gets Autistic Kid To Buy Some Weed

A scary trend in which cops infiltrate American schools and set up unassuming students for drug deals is emerging in the United States. Last week, the parents of a special-needs boy in Temecula, Calif., filed a claim against the local school district for helping “local authorities in an undercover drug sting that intentionally targeted and discriminated against their son.”

TAZED: Police In California Caught On Video Brutalizing Cooperative Couple In Their Home

Federal Government Declares War On States Promoting Gun Rights

Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback attacking legislation recently passed in the State that nullifies unConstitutional Federal gun laws.

If you’re in North Carolina, make sure you don’t make the mistake of drinking sweet tea in front of a cop: It could land you in jail. On April 29, rapper Christopher “Xstrav” Beatty was placed under arrest for being unwilling to hand his can of AriZona Iced Tea to an undercover cop as he […]

Bone Up On Your Rights Before Encountering A Bad Cop

A helpful video produced by Flex Your Rights, an educational nonprofit that seeks to inform Americans about their Constitutional protections against state infringement, offers some invaluable advice on how to handle an encounter with a police officer who has more on his mind than protecting and serving.

The video enacts 10 different dramatic scenarios portraying encounters with aggressive, mean and just plain crooked cops that illustrate — frighteningly, at times — how innocent people have very little wiggle room when a bad cop with a sense of entitlement throws them off their guard. Aside from the immediate danger a cop with evil intent presents, victims face an equal danger in defending their actions, in the aftermath, when they have to explain their side of the story in court.

No Place For Liberty In The Progressives’ Timid New World

The Founders’ vision of the United States as a beacon of liberty for the rest of the world grew largely from their desire to ensure that the Nation never resembled that from which they were forced to fight a bloody war to free themselves. The law of the land, in its original construct, was designed to protect personal freedom, privacy and the right to self-preservation against the malicious intent of both agents of the state and free-actors with equal vigor.

But, for busybodies and statists hell-bent on total control, the modern world is too different a place for Americans to value the historic advice — and legislation — of the Nation’s Founding Fathers. And every tragedy or event that has the potential to affront the hearts of Americans with the least bit of unease represents a new chance for the liberty-averse to make their case for less Constitutional consideration.

Sleeping Man Shot 16 Times May Sue Police For Abuse

He wasn’t even the reason the cops went to the house where he was sleeping on the night of Feb. 11, 2012 to make an arrest. He didn’t own the house; in fact, he was only renting out a bedroom. Before police showed up that night, they didn’t even know Dustin Theoharris existed. But that didn’t stop the cops from filling him with holes.

Vet Abused, Disarmed By Cops Because ‘Polite’ Constitution Has No Place For Rights

You have the right to bear arms — still relatively un-infringed in some States — unless, of course, agents of the state deem you are doing so in an impolite manner. A decorated veteran who was on a 10-mile hike with his 15-year-old son was illegally disarmed and arrested on a Texas county road for “rudely displaying a firearm.”
