FEDS: Officer indicted in Independence stun gun case

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A federal grand jury has indicted a former Independence police officer who fired his stun gun at a teen, causing the teen's heart to stop.
The grand jury reviewed Runnnels' actions when he pulled over then 17-year-old Bryce Masters in September. The grand jury reviewed whether Runnels' actions were an appropriate use of force and whether he immediately provided aid after the teen collapsed.

DU member ms.smiler is no longer with us.

Her given name was Mary Ann, she was a small business owner in Penn.
She posted often about the mortgage fraud, was very knowledgeable, and had emailed me a lot of valuable info.on the subject.
One of her happys was suing illegal robocall people, she used the Consumer Protection Act against them, and invariably won!
Very very smart lady. Wickedly funny, too.

She was a very proud grandmother for the first time, and sent pictures over the months of her grandbaby.

Last Sept. one of my emails to her was returned with a message from her son that she had suffered a very very serious stroke,
he was quite shaken and prospects did not look good for her.
I have not heard from the family since.

I do miss her a lot.

Alabama to stop using marriage licenses altogether.

This was in our local weekly newspaper.

Alabama, in a preemptive move against the probable SCOTUS ruling, is planning on removing the need for marriage licenses altogether.
The plan is to go to a recording system, where you sign a form stating you want to be considered married, pay the Probate office a fee, and that is it.
People seeking marriage in a church can do the whole vow taking thing, the minister will fill the recording form.
The forms will be filed with the Dept. of Health.

Apparently Oklahoma does this also.

In 2006, Alabama legislature passed a law saying marriage was lawful between a man and a woman.
How this plan will address that is not clear.
There are now several lawsuits by gay couples against the state.

Personally, I like the more simple process, as long as it does not discriminate.

Thoughts?

Can you pass the written police officer exam?

There is about 20 short multiple choice questions here....most of them common sense logic answers...
I got ": Not too shabby" rating.
How about you?

Matt DeHart ... child predator, or CIA whistleblower framed by the Feds?

The government says Matt DeHart is an online child predator. He says that’s a ruse created because he discovered shocking CIA secrets and claims he was tortured by federal agents. The only thing that’s clear is that he’s in deep trouble.

On the evening of April 3, 2013, a battered blue pickup truck slowly crossed a bridge from International Falls, Minnesota, to the border station at Fort Frances, Ontario. The family inside — a clean-cut middle-aged couple and their dark-haired 28-year-old son — looked like any other vacationers heading north. The father handed over their IDs to the border guards. “We need the protection of the Canadian government under the U.N. convention against torture,” he said. “Because our son was tortured by the FBI.”

It sounded like something out of a Soviet-era spy thriller. Yet the family making the request couldn’t have been more all-American. Paul DeHart, a church pastor, was a retired Air Force intelligence analyst whose work was overseen by the National Security Agency. His wife, Leann, was a former Army voice interceptor. Paul explained that Matthew, their only child, had followed in their footsteps, poring over spy data gathered by drones in the Middle East for the Indiana Air National Guard. They had just driven through the night from their home in Indiana, Paul said, because they were fleeing the country they had once pledged to serve.

Matt, he explained, was a member of the hacktivist collective Anonymous and had created a repository on the Dark Web for leaked government files. After stumbling on a file that he believed detailed an FBI investigation into the CIA, Matt, the family was convinced, was subject to what Paul described as an elaborate and increasingly frightening ruse: raided and tortured by the FBI, hit with bogus child porn charges, shuttled between prisons for nearly two years.

Paul told the agents that his family had evidence to back up their account: court documents, medical records, and affidavits — along with the leaked FBI document Matt had found that exposed an explosive secret. It was all on two encrypted thumb drives, which Matt later pulled off a lanyard around his neck and handed to the guards.

You probably won’t read this piece about Syria

Article makes a most important point about where we are at this point in time.

AJE this week ran special content on a grim milestone because it's important. But our data told us something: few cared.

SNIP....
On the anniversary, we published a lot of content. There were stirring documentaries, powerful polemics, Syrian paintings, infographics, analysis, interviews, features and news. There was streaming TV. We tried to take our audience into the lives of those caught up in this.

But the number of people who came to our site that day was far lower than expected. As we watched the analytics, tracked our traffic, that stinging accusation of apathy seemed justified.
