DEA Steals $16,000 In Cash From Young Black Man

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/07/dea-asset-forfeiture-joseph-rivers_n_7231744.html

After scraping together enough money to produce a music video in Hollywood, 22-year-old Joseph Rivers set out last month on a train trip from Michigan to Los Angeles, hoping it was the start of something big.

...

Rivers changed trains at the Amtrak station in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on April 15, with bags containing his clothes, other possessions and an envelope filled with the $16,000 in cash he had raised with the help of his family, the Albuquerque Journal reports. Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration got on after him and began looking for people who might be trafficking drugs.

Rivers said the agents questioned passengers at random, asking for their destination and reason for travel. When one of the agents got to Rivers, who was the only black person in his car, according to witnesses, the agent took the interrogation further, asking to search his bags. Rivers complied. The agent found the cash -- still in a bank envelope -- and decided to seize it on suspicion that it may be tied to narcotics. River pleaded with the agents, explaining his situation and even putting his mother on the phone to verify the story.

...

“We don’t have to prove that the person is guilty,” Sean Waite, the agent in charge at the DEA's Albuquerque's office, told the Journal. “It’s that the money is presumed to be guilty.”

----------

I believe that Sean Waite - that's sean.r.waite@usdoj.gov - deserves a personal round of appreciation from anyone who feels led to congratulate him on this remarkable victory in the war on families raising money for a young man to pursue his dream.

The FEC form 2 is available online here:

Remember: You can't win if you don't play.

I like Clinton and Sanders


Do we all have to buy into politics as "Mortal Kombat"?

The primaries will come and go, and good times will be had by all along the way.

It's not going to end with one of them yanking out the still-beating heart of the other.

Both have pluses and minuses as far as I'm concerned but, good golly, what is with the continual sniping at one another here?

People kill people over stupid shit every god-damned day

Man Fatally Stabs Brother Over Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

The victim's cousin told police that he was stabbed by his brother during an argument about the much-anticipated boxing match that took place Saturday night.


Not a single DU thread here supporting the right to the dead guy's opinion about that boxing match.

A verbal altercation between two groups at a Tyler Walmart Thursday night ended with one man dead and another shot after they followed the other party to their home.


Well, golly, has anyone gone and found out what they were arguing about, who was right, and boldly stood up for the right of whomever was shot to say whatever it was he said?

Man shot in shoulder Wednesday after argument at Jacksonville food store


Well, my goodness, I have no idea what to make of that with no idea what they were arguing about.

"Someone stupid shot someone over some stupid shit someone said" is hardly an unusual news item. Whatever the "stupid shit" may have been is irrelevant to whatever it was that inspired the stupid person to do the shooting.




About that Popeye's restaurant which fired the pregnant employee

The franchise owner of the Popeye's in question is Z&H Foods Inc., of Houston, Texas.

They were sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2014 for failing to respond to an administrative subpoena pursuant to an investigation of their employment practices:

http://dockets.justia.com/docket/texas/txsdce/4:2014mc01459/1184984

significantly:


4. The Respondent is an employer doing business in the State of Texas,
with a Popeye’s facility at 3103 FM 1960, in Humble, Texas.

5. On May 6, 2014, pursuant to its authority under 29 U.S.C. § 161 (incorporated in
Section 710 of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-9, which, in turn, is incorporated in Section 107(a)
of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. §12117(a)), the EEOC issued to the Respondent Subpoena No.
HU-A14-39, which was duly served on the Respondent.

6. Subpoena No. HU-A14-39 required the Respondent to produce information
needed as part of the EEOC’s investigation of a charge of unlawful employ
ment practices, Charge No. 460-2014-00470, which has been filed against the Respondent.

7. The Respondent has not filed a petition to revoke or modify the Subpoena.

8. The Respondent has refused to comply with Subpoena No. HU-A14-39.


The proceedings appear to have been served on the following individual:

Z&H Foods, Inc.
c/o
Shoukat Dhanani
4415 Highway 6
Sugarland, TX 77478

A real peach that guy is.

Be sure to say hello to him on Facebook, for those of you that use it:

In Florida Man's Defense (the tree guy)


Who could resist the heady mix of Anita Bryant's overpoweringly wholesome sexual excitement and a great source of vitamin C?

If the Supreme Court Upholds Marriage Equality...

The thing that will be a real wonder to observe will be everyone from Pat Robertson to Rick Santorum to Mike Hucksterbee and the whole lot of them just go on a wild spree of having sex with dogs, cats, armadillos, etc.; sexually assaulting inanimate objects; and engaging in the most bizarre public acts of sexual perversion imaginable; because - now think about it - you take note of every dire consequence that they've come up with over the years, and it dawns on me now that they've been putting together a twisted "bucket list" of things to do as soon as they hear the ruling.

Hillary Clinton Turned Me Into A Newt!



And, no, I did NOT "get better"!

Question about tasers...


I've never handled one, so I have no clue on their operation other than there is an HV induction circuit attached by long thin wires to two barbs that shoot out.

After a taser is fired, how do you get the wires and barbs back into the taser?

Are they expendable parts, or do you re-load them?

Are there two cops in the video?

I've only seen what was shown on Chris Hayes.

When the object is dropped by the shooter next to the body, it seems there is another cop standing right there as he drops it.

On Hayes' show, the area of the object being dropped is enhanced, and the remainder of the shot is blurred out.

It looks like there is anothe cop standing right there.

Where is the other cop now, and why is that cop not being charged? The object - presumably the taser - is dropped right in front of that other cop.
