Why should hitting a cop be
a federal crime?

New York Post, by Jacob Sullum

Original Article

Posted By:mc squared, 5/24/2018 10:55:25 AM

Last week, the House of Representatives — by a margin of more than 10 to 1 — approved a completely gratuitous, blatantly unconstitutional bill that would make assaulting a police officer a federal crime. The lopsided vote was a bipartisan portrait in cowardice that vividly showed how readily politicians forsake their oaths of office to keep their hold on power. The Protect and Serve Act prescribes a prison sentence of up to 10 years for anyone who “knowingly assaults a law-enforcement officer,” thereby “causing serious bodily injury,” or “attempts to do so.” Such conduct is, of course, already illegal in

Comments:
No one is for assaulting a LEO, so get that out of the way.
As the article says, this is more grandstanding by elected representatives that will do nothing to stop attacks on cops. What it will do is remove more authority from the states and likely come with strings attached. They don´t really think a drunk who pushed a cop should be in Federal court - do they?
Maybe MS-13 will behave, though.

If the police officer dies as result of the assault the federal government has the death penalty which a number of states do not have.

The feds don´t need to be involved in this crime any more than the FBI should be called in to investigate reported suspicious activity by a high school student.

Many (not all) LEOs will get up in the face of a suspect they don´t like or chest bump a suspect and when the ´suspect´ pushes back, he´s charged with assault of a police officer. This law is going to make a lot of self-important, bullying police officers, even more brazen.

As the police are public servants, this should also apply to police assaulting citizens.
Putting the 1-2% of cops that are bad apples behind bars for 10 years would really clean up the image of the force.

I am a huge supporter of police officers have many friends in LE, but this is a very bad idea.

There are already WAY, WAY too many federal crimes. Crime should be a state and local affair unless it is a cross-state lines deal at the fundamental level.

Stop adding crimes to the federal responsibility.

Gangbangers arrested for killing
teen getting protection in jail
New York Post, by Larry Celona    Original Article
Posted By: mc squared- 7/2/2018 9:49:51     Post Reply
The eight gangbangers accused of butchering innocent teen Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz are getting special treatment in jail, according to law enforcement sources. The men — all variously charged with murder in the 15-year-old’s grisly mistaken-identity slaying — have been moved out of the general population because they are getting threats, sources said. Some are being held at Rikers Island and the rest at other jails. Each time one of them is moved, all other inmate transfers are put on hold — and the suspects are accompanied by several correction officers and a captain who film the transfer, the source said.

NARCISSISM 101: Obama Says Dems

Daily Wire, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: mc squared- 6/30/2018 12:20:53     Post Reply
On Thursday, former president Barack Obama offered his usual narcissistic perspective, this time as to why the Democrats got pounded in the 2016 election: “People were so focused on me.” Yup, the fact that Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, that much of America was sick of the Left’s identity politics, and that Donald Trump ran one of the most energized campaigns in recent years weren’t the prime cause of the Democrats’ woes; it was simply that Democrats couldn’t muster the energy to vote because of Obama himself. As Politico reports, speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, Obama intoned,

Protesters burn Mississippi flag,

A group of about 30 demonstrators on Monday burned a Mississippi state flag, saying it symbolizes the racism at the heart of the state’s problems with poverty, education and healthcare. Demonstrators with the Poor People’s Campaign burned a Confederate battle flag and then a separate Mississippi state flag Monday in front of the governor’s mansion. Mississippi’s flag has contained the Confederate battle emblem since 1894, and residents who voted in a 2001 statewide election chose to keep the emblem on it. The campaign includes activists in 40 states who are demonstrating, seeking to force communities to address poverty. They say

American women live under a suffocating patriarchy. Rape culture flourishes in the US. Toxic masculinity stunts the emotional and professional growth of American females. Sexual harassment and predation are ubiquitous in American workplaces. These propositions are self-evident to a large, interlocking establishment of government bureaucrats, progressive politicians, college administrators, faculty, “activists,” professionals and journalists. Yet this same establishment is up in arms over a recent declaration by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions that female aliens caught trying to enter the country illegally will no longer be

Company slammed for ‘Baby Daddy’
Father’s Day card

You can’t judge a book by its cover — but a Father’s Day card, that’s a different story. Just ask American Greetings, which caught plenty of grief on Thursday for its tone-deaf “Baby Daddy” card. The card, which was quickly removed from the greeting card company’s Web site — as well as from Target, where it was being sold — featured a silhouetted black couple on the cover behind the two-word greeting. It’s obvious the Cleveland-based card maker hadn’t checked the Urban Dictionary before approving the card and shipping it to stores. Had it done so, it would have learned that Baby Daddy means: “The father of your child,

The USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned ship in the Navy, sits in Boston, revered by sailors and history buffs. The second-oldest ship, the USS Pueblo, floats at a river dock in Pyongyang, still a hostage more than 50 years after North Korea seized it in a January 1968 raid in the frigid waters of the East Sea off the hermit kingdom’s northeastern coast. Calls from the surviving crew to bring the ship back have amounted to naught. The Colorado legislature, protective of the ship named after one of its cities, also weighs in every year with a resolution calling for

Credit service shuts down
payments on all gun purchases
New York Post, by Lois Weiss    Original Article
Posted By: mc squared- 6/11/2018 8:57:46     Post Reply
Several gun-related businesses were suddenly — and without warning — disrupted in recent weeks when Intuit stopped processing credit card payments because sales were gun-related, The Post has learned. Some of the payments stopped didn’t even involve firearms, but simply T-shirts and coffee mugs and gun safety classes, according to small business owners. As a result, the businesses had to scramble to track down customers to get them repay their bills after Intuit credited back to customers’ accounts the purchases — even if the T-shirt was already shipped or the class already taken, one businessman told The Post.

A young Long Island woman who spent over a year insisting that she was raped by two Sacred Heart University football players officially admitted in court Tuesday that she’s been lying the entire time. Nikki Yovino, 19, pleaded guilty to charges of falsely reporting an incident and interfering with police, according to the Connecticut Post. The former college student reportedly accepted a plea deal, and will now serve a reduced sentence of one year in prison. She had been facing six. Yovino agreed to the deal just as jury selection was getting ready to begin in her false rape trial, the

Parkland, Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz recorded a trio of chilling cell phone videos sometime before the massacre, detailing the bloodshed he was about to unleash. “My name is Nik and I’m going to be the next school shooter of 2018,” Cruz says calmly in one of the undated videos, released Wednesday by the Broward State Attorney’s Office. “My goal is at least 20 people with an AR-15. … Location is [Marjory] Stoneman Douglas [High School] in Parkland, Florida.” “You’re all going to die,” he added, mimicking the sounds of gunshots. Armed with that AR-15-style assault rifle, Cruz stormed into

Authorities say a Tesla sedan in Autopilot mode has crashed into a parked police cruiser in Southern California. Police Sgt. Jim Cota says the officer was not in the cruiser during the crash Tuesday in Laguna Beach. He says the Tesla driver suffered minor injuries. The police SUV ended up with its two passenger-side wheels on a sidewalk. Tesla’s semi-autonomous Autopilot mode has come under scrutiny following other recent crashes. The carmaker says the function is not designed to avoid a collision and warns drivers not to rely on it entirely.

A man who injured two people when he opened fire in an Oklahoma City restaurant Thursday night was shot dead by an armed bystander, police said. The suspect walked into a Louie’s restaurant in the Lake Hefner area and shot two people inside, according to the Oklahoma City Police Department. A person with a pistol confronted the gunman and fatally shot him, the cops said. The two victims, both females, were taken to the hospital where they were recovering. It was unclear Thursday night why the gunman opened fire in the restaurant.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Hillary Clinton had strong words for the Trump administration and Republicans on Friday while addressing the American Federation of Teachers, saying the fundamental rights of Americans are what’s at stake this November. Speaking at the labor union’s conference in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Clinton slammed the administration’s separations of families at the border as inhumane and indecent. “I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest, our oldest, our people with disabilities, and right now, my friends, our country is failing that test,” she said. “We have

FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the investigation of possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign testified under oath in a congressional hearing on Thursday that FBI agents can engage in some types of adultery. Strzok was asked “what action” he would take if he found out one of his subordinates was conducting an “extramarital affair.” “It depends,” said Strzok. “If it was against the FBI’s regulation in terms of if it was somebody in their chain of command, above or below them, which is inappropriate or not allowed by regulation, I would

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of
