An Army veteran who’d been living at the same Buffalo, N.Y., address for three years got home Monday afternoon to discover that someone had torn down the door, shot up the apartment, ransacked the place and killed his dog, Cindy, who was leashed in the kitchen.
A Hearing-impaired Washington woman who was pulled over for allegedly using her cell phone while driving had a difficult time explaining to the officer that she couldn’t understand his commands. What Megan Graham now understands, however, is that she’s facing assault charges for allegedly attacking police. But it’s Graham, and not the cop, who came away from the incident with a battered and disfigured face.
The IRS/Tea Party Scandal doesn’t hold a candle to the size and scope of IRS abuses… So, it sheds no light on anything. Let’s boil this scandal down to simple words; words like “Tea Party” and “Patriot” and “Constitutional”; words that when used in paperwork to become tax exempt organizations, keep the people filing from being treated fairly.
Jerry Wayne Waller, a 72-year-old who lived in east Fort Worth, Texas, heard his neighbor’s security alarm going off early Tuesday morning. He lived in an area where most people knew their neighbors, as well as others who lived down the street. So he went outside his house to see what was going on.
But the Dallas-Fort Worth police had already arrived to take care of things. They didn’t let Waller leave his own property alive.
A scary trend in which cops infiltrate American schools and set up unassuming students for drug deals is emerging in the United States.

Adam Kokesh, the Iraq war veteran and host of the Internet radio program “Adam vs. The Man” who became a staunch opponent of the “war on terror” and who planned a peaceful armed march on Washington, D.C., on July 4, was disappeared in broad daylight while speaking at a Smoke Down Prohibition rally in Philadelphia May 18.
When was the last time you heard a story about police who’d gone to the trouble of ganging up at someone’s front door simply walking away when their suspicions turned out to be unfounded? Don’t add the story of this California couple to your short list.
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.
Kansas is the first State to be called out by the Federal government for its attempt to nullify gun laws deemed unConstitutional within its borders; a number of other gun-friendly States have taken similar legislative action.
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 […]
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.
