A West Virginia woman who stood between her dog and a cop who was about to shoot it was acquitted by a jury of obstruction charges on February, 29th, 2016.

West Virginia state trooper Seth Cook testified that he was not afraid of the dog, but was following training that required him to kill all dogs that approach him, even if it was chained and wagging its tail as Buddy was doing in this case.

And because Tiffanie Hupp tried to stop him from doing so, she was arrested.

Hupp, 23, and mother of two, told Photography is Not a Crime that the cops weren’t even called to her family’s property in Parkersburg for a dispute involving a dog on May 9, 2015.

Instead, they were there to mediate a tiff between her stepfather-in-law and his neighbor.

In fact, they were the ones that called police in the first place.

Cook had just talked to her neighbor’s and had stepped onto her family’s property when Buddy began barking and approaching the officer, reaching the end of its chain.

That’s when Hupp’s husband, Ryan Hupp, 25, began recording.

The problem is obvious, cops being trigger happy. And thats not just to dawgs unless you count black people and mentally ill people as dogs but why would you?

Police are far too liable to shoot first rather then taking the time to assess a situation resulting in dogs being shot for being dogs, kids being shot for holding airshit guns and Wii-motes, and crap like that.

The solution? Dunno. Police retraining certainly can help. More research into less lethal but still effective alternatives to a Glawk and Taser that gives the ranger and reliability of a pistol with the less deading ability of a taser. More public outcry over these senseless killings and not some black lives matter bullshit that defends every thug and punks that got themselves shot by being fucktards right alongside innocent victims. Greater punishments for cops who fuck up, which is probably the hardest.

One of the best solutions is probably something mentioned in the article, people recording the cops. Cops try, try, try to stop it of course, sometimes even have the courts backing them but the best defense against trigger happy cops is to record the fuck out of them and send the video to as many people as possible.

Anyway, I've been following this story since it was close to home (literally) and glad the woman didn't go to jail. This entire case was all kinds of shady and hopefully the cop and the public defender get some punishment (unlikely).

Whats interesting is usually in the area WV State Troopers are seen as more fair and honest then locals. Pretty much everyone says its better to deal with a ST then a local cop because the local cops are usually emotional assholes who act like bullies (which to be fair some do) while the STs act more professional.

A single bad apple? Maybe, though I dunno considering the conflict of interest shenanigans with the Troopers boss and the public defender.

As if it mattered. Russia was trying to silence this just like GER was trying to silence the Cologne happenings citing "not inflaming the Muslims further" as a reason.

Yea Russia was trying to silence it so bad the spokeschanel of the state was running the story hours after it happened.

And where do you NOT see her being mental? If she actually wanted to commit a terrorist act, why not connect to a terror cell? Why not manufacture homemade explosives? Why not kill somebody other than a handicapped girl, which actually is sort of a blessing in disguise for the parents.

1. You should stop making shit up.
2. You should think about the circumstances a bit.

Didn't see a thread about it so I figured I'd start one.

Apple encryption is in fact strong enough to block da guberment and there wasn't a back door already built into the system. Quit frankly that surprised me.

https://www.apple.com/customer-letter/

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/03/01/apple-fbi-face-off-house-hearing-encryption/81111440/

My 2 cents- encryption is always in the best interest of the general public and state organizations. If the FBI can't get the job done now, how did they ever get anything done before when the most you had to go on was 'a call was made to X' and there was no fucking records period.

FBI is being lazy, and it highlights the lack tech savvy. Apple is fighting the good fight which makes it hard for me to be smug from my linux box. I hate not getting to be smug

Apple products are generally only leased and operated by their customers, and owned by the company itself, or by the service provider.

Most cell phones in fact keep some functions of the phone reserved for the service provider. One key function is the root access for the phone, which if given to FBI they can easily bypass all your passwords.

Putting valuable shit on an cellphone is dumb, the only thing I keep on it is smut, my own cock pictures and naked pictures women send me. If FBI wants to look at that, go right ahead.

The way I've always understood it when it came to warrants is, it gives the government the permission to get into something they otherwise couldn't. However, other than gaining the permission, they have no special help in gaining access. They still have to break in to plant the bug, tap the phone, or in more recent years, track emails and electronic locations. The government can hack to their hearts content provided they have the warrant, but they still have to hack. How in the ever loving fuck can a court require a tech company to program software to hack a device? Supposing they say no? How would you then compel them to carry out this technologically difficult and nuanced task? It must be difficult, or some braniac in the federal government would've done so already with his court given permission. Is an agent going to hold a team of Apple programmers and developers at gunpoint until the task is complete?

Well enter the handy All Writs Act - the court can order literally anything.

In the past this is usually stuff like ordering landlords to give you a key rather than breaking down the door and similar stuff, this is one of the first really big tests on it about technology.

TBH the AWA is outrageously broad and essentially grants the courts unlimited power. It needs to be changed.

SCALIA IS DEAD!!! OBAMA TO APPOINT NEW JUSTICE

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.
According to a report, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.
U.S. District Judge Fred Biery said he was among those notified about Scalia's death.
"I was told it was this morning," Biery said of Scalia's death. "It happened on a ranch out near Marfa. As far as the details, I think it's pretty vague right now as to how," he said. "My reaction is it's really unfortunate with any death. And now, politically, in the presidential cycle we're in my educated guess is nothing will happen before the next president is elected."

It was supposed to be a routine refueling stop in Zimbabwe by an American-owned cargo plane, traveling from Germany to South Africa. Then airport officials noticed blood splattered on the fuselage, and found a corpse and a small fortune in South African cash inside.

The discovery on Sunday led the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe to impound the aircraft, an unmarked chartered MD11 freighter owned by Western Global Airlines, a well-established international cargo carrier based in Estero, Fla. As of Monday, the aircraft remained on the tarmac at the airport in Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital, and officials said they were still investigating.

The identity of the corpse was not clear. Western Global Airlines, which confirmed on Monday that it owned the plane, said in a statement that the corpse was suspected to have been a stowaway “who may have entered the airplane during a previous stop.”

The airline said the plane had been leased to Network Airline Management, a longtime customer based in Britain that uses Western Global Airlines aircraft and crews for several flights a week from Europe to Africa. Western Global said the cash was a shipment for the South African Reserve Bank.

Officials at Network Airline Management, whose headquarters are at Gatwick Airport, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The Herald, Zimbabwe’s leading newspaper, which was among the first to report the episode, said the plane had been “stashed with millions of rands.” One million rand is equivalent to about $62,500.

The newspaper also said that South Africa’s ambassador to Zimbabwe, Vusi Mavimbela, confirmed the incident but could not give further details.

News agency accounts said the crew members — two Americans, a South African and a Pakistani — had not been aware of the corpse. The accounts speculated that the person found dead, who apparently had sneaked into the landing gear opening, was crushed when the gear retracted after takeoff.

South African mercenaries/advisers generally work better with African forces because they're not as racist as Americans/Europoors and better understand the abilities and limits of having poorly trained conscripts and few skilled NCOs.

But anyways, turns out the money was owned by the South African government.

>The airline confirmed that their aircraft was leased to Network Airline Management. The shipment picked up in Munich was destined for South African Reserve Bank. The aircraft operates to Africa for Network Airline Management several times a week on a regular basis with Western Global providing aircraft and crew and Network Airline Management providing security, ground handling and cargo. The airline wrote: "During a routine fuel stop in Zimbabwe, a body was found in the lower compartment. The body is presumed to be a stowaway who may have entered the airplane during a previous stop. The situation is currently under review."

>South African Reserve Bank stated: "The bulk of the annual production of banknotes is done locally in South Africa and a small percentage is done offshore as part of the contingency plans of the SARB. The aircraft currently detained at Harare Airport is carrying a consignment of South African banknotes that was produced overseas as part of the SARB's annual production plan."

>On Feb 20th 2016 Zimbabwean police stated, that the autopsy of the body revealed no internal or external injuries, the death was result of lack of oxygen. There was no suspicious activity by the crew, nothing suspicious around the cargo of 67 tons of bank notes. The aircraft and crew therefore were released to continue the flight.

By urging his followers to vote against Donald Trump, the Roman Catholic Church has left the realm of impartial, tax-exempt charitable organizations and joined the realm of partisan politics. Welcome to the realm, Pope Francis, its gonna cost your at least $500,000,000 a year in taxes paid to Uncle Sam if you want to pontificate on our elections. If you don't pay, maybe we need to build a wall to keep foreign politicians who don't pay their taxes out of the country, but only after we're done building a wall to keep the Pope's Mexican zerg rush out of the country.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/02/19/donald-trump-is-not-christian-who-is-pope-francis-to-judge/

Donald Trump has received his very own, highly publicized Day of Judgment.

Charges brought against him suggest there is a deep divide between the claims he has made about himself and his behavior.

But just who are the National Review editors to judge?

A kind of conservative judgment day came in January when the magazine first unveiled its polemic against Trump’s candidacy. The arguments made in the “Against Trump” symposium declared that Trump is just not a conservative.

[What Donald Trump and Pope Francis actually have in common]

On top of that, Trump’s religious beliefs have now been called into question by a very prominent source, the spiritual leader for more than 1 billion Christians around the world.

You're a fucking idiot. If purgatory is passed, the person goes to heaven. Intervening in purgatory with wizard paper is EXACTLY SAVING THEIR SOUL FROM HELL.

Orthodoxy doesn't believe Purgatory exists. They have totally different concepts. When you die, your soul separates from your body, and it can hang around Earth for a while, or you pass GO and collect your "temporary Judgment" where you get to go to Paradise or Hell depending.
However, they think your soul gets a taste of either of these until Final Judgment, Judgment Day, etc. where your soul and body reunite and you experience your perfect state in Heaven.

It's either going to be live and let live and be left alone for them, or their going to see increased marginalization and hostility in politics.
And then there is the crowd who would rather vote Hillary than trump.......

I can't stand Rubio, he's just flat out wrong/flip flopping on immigration.

You know why this all sounding crazy? Because this primary is not for you; they aren't trying to get 20-30 something quasi libertarian average guy who uses logic 'yet', they (really and esp trump because he's swinging the narrative and target away from traditional conservatives) are trying to attract the discontent, fed up, disaffected, and the politically inefficate.

Isn't Trump's economic policy more like Barry Goldwater than Reaganomics? As in actually fiscal conservative?

Uh yeah. There's a clear and well documented correlation between age, education, working experience, and political beliefs.

I see your snazzy youtube video by a talk show host, and raise you an actual scholarly source.

Conservatives have broader moral sense than liberals, says ‘Righteous Mind’ author

University of Virginia professor Jonathan Haidt’s research study asked individuals to answer questionnaires regarding their core moral beliefs, questions like what sorts of values they consider sacred, which they would compromise on, and how much it would take to get them to make those compromises. By themselves, these exercises are interesting.

But Haidt’s research went one step further, asking self-indentified conservatives to answer those questionnaires as if they were liberals and for liberals to do the opposite. What Haidt found is that conservatives understand liberals’ moral values better than liberals understand where conservatives are coming from. Worse yet, liberals don’t know what they don’t know; they don’t understand how limited their knowledge of conservative values is. If anyone is close-minded here it’s not conservatives.

Haidt is a self-identified leftist by the way. He went into the study with clear ideas about how the left was going to be the more "emotionally mature" and "open-minded" group, just like all the media buzzwords and propaganda says. However, Haidt's research, time after time shut his theory down.

In other words a Hi-point and a Mossberg 500. Or since the article says .223 it could be a Olympic Arms AR.

You would think with the amount of shootings they would hire someone who knows firearms. Of course that would mean first they'd have to find someone who knows firearms but is willing to work with a bunch of anti-gun media shills and two would mean they'd have to do something beyond making attention grabbing highly biased news reports.

I've said it befo and I'll say it again, the way to prevent these fucking shootings is to quit making celebs of the shooters. A bunch of lonely assholes who have nobody who loves them and want to be remembered will be far, FAR less likely to pop a cap in someones ass beyond themselves if the media wasn't turning them into stars, having in dept coverage of their entire lives and making them famous.
