Police problem officers (tags)

Federal Prohibition Against Legalized Medical Cannabis Enables Robbery, Kidnapping (tags)
The kidnapping, torture and castration of a local medical cannabis dispensary owner plays into the hands of the federal prohibition against medical cannabis and prevents the voters of states like CA and CO from being able to put their votes for legalization into practice. By creating a hostile business climate and forcing dispensary owners to deal in cash the federal government directly enables these sorts of kidnappings and robberies. Yet big banks continue to launder drug cartel money? Hypocrisy anyone?

Plea bargains flush your right to a jury trial down the toilet (tags)
Cops use plea bargains to flush jury trials down the toilet! Well I guess I should say the government uses plea bargains to flush your right to a jury trial down the toilet.

US Women Charged with Murder Following Miscarriage (tags)
In a growing number of US states, pregnant women who miscarry their babies are being criminalized, some charged with murder. Ultimately, the move by state prosecutors is more widely aimed at stripping women of the legal right to abortion sanctioned by the US Supreme Court in its 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade (1973) 410 US 113 [Majority opinion by Nixon appointee Justice Blackmun; Dissenting opinion by Justice White, a Kennedy appointee, proving mass demonstrations are decisive].
NEXT QUESTION ON STRAUSS-KAHN: Was He Set Up? (tags)
The questions include the convenience of having someone who regularly launders drug money in amounts around $100,000, they could easily hide the payments for making false accusations among the other cash payments laundered for drug dealers. There are reasons to destroy the credibility of a powerful Socialist candidate for French President before the elections. In addition, there are the globalists who dislike the way DSK was running the IMF and World Bank, trying to play fair by preventing third world nations from incurring further debts.
