Nice handbasket though.
Imagine trying to explain this to say, Ben Franklin or Tom Paine. That’s a site called, “Law Officer”, I assume it’s for cops.
So Providence pols passed a law and the cops are upset. I’ll be in italics.
Here are some of the items that the future victims of Providence Crime need to be aware of:
Traffic stops can no longer be used as probable cause to investigate further criminal activity. (Good. I don’t see how me having a broken tail light means you can give me a tonsillectomy by going in through my ass.)
Police may not ask for identification more than once including “police may not consider an individual’s lack of proof of identification or failure to respond to a request for identifying information as probable cause or reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.” (Good. Your Papers Please! annoys me. Show me the law that says I need to carry ID to make a cop happy)
Police may not photograph anyone below the age of 18 and if a photo (under certain guidelines) is allowed, it must be destroyed in 90 days. (Why are cops photographing anybody? if you have a mugshot, that’s one thing)
“Police may not inquire about an individual’s immigration status.” (Good, if that’s before being arrested, See #2, not good if it’s after)
There is an entire appeal process for anyone listed as a gang member to not be listed as a gang member. (Oh no! You mean if you cops make a mistake someone can get off your list? This makes me wonder what official status this “gang list” has. I can see having it listed on his mugsheet that he’s been connected with gang activity but what’s the ‘gang list’? Unless you’re going after a specific gang and need a list of its members.)
“If an individual has no convictions within a two-year period after their name has been placed on the “gang list,” and no new evidence meeting the criteria for inclusion on the “gang list” has been found, the name shall be removed and all related records destroyed.” (I’m not sure what this ‘gang list’ is, but if it has official status, I’d like to see the statute that gives it that status. If it’s like the No-Fly list, well, I don’t like “Lists” that restrict freedom that do not involve convictions)
I really don’t like 1 and 2 and that “gang list” sort of scares me.

This is fucked up. I try to stay informed but I had no idea this was going on.
The Maduro regime is killing young Venezuelans in order to provoke a violent response for the opposition… Rather than falling into the trap, nonviolent opposition is organizing a nonviolent silent march later today to remember those killed and demand justice…
Shooting young Venezuelans in the head to terrorize demonstrators and provoke a response has been a Maduro regime tactic since at least February 2014.
Beginning on February 12, 2014 regime agents shot Bassil Alejandro Dacosta, age 24 in the head. One of the young students who carried Bassil off after he was shot was Robert Redman, age 28, who reported later that day over twitter: “Today I was hit with a rock in the back, a helmet in my nose. I swallowed tear-gas, Carried the kid who died, and what did you do?” That same day he was also gunned down by Maduro’s colectivos, working in concert with his security forces, and murdered. The killings continued.
A few of the victims.
I hate murderous dictators. I really do.
I also hate our fine media betters who are busy either whitewashing their progressive hero or ignoring his bodycount.
It’s funny, when others say this they’re called haters.
Doctor accused of mutilating genitals of young girls defends procedure as religious practice.
Although from what I know, it’s not religious, it’s used by the cultures who did it before Islam.
Remember when the Berkeley cops let their fascists attack people for speech they don’t like?
No, not that time, the other time. No, not that time. I’m talking about Milo. Geez.
Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of the anti-fascist (sic) Facebook group, By Any Means Necessary, which orchestrated the riots that occurred ahead of a scheduled lecture by Milo Yiannopoulos.
Does that show collusion? I mean, it’s California and they were stopping speech CA doesn’t like, but I sometimes like to think about what a country with a rule of law and a Constitution would do.
It’s funny how our worldly lefties just do not understand the rest of the world. Fake black person goes to Africa, Africans do not think it’s funny that whitey claims to be black.
Police flanked Ms Dolezal’s first key note event after a hostile meeting with mostly black students who objected to her insistence that she had ‘an authentic black identity’ despite admitting to being ‘biologically white’.
In South Africa. That’s funny.
I will say I agree with her here.
The shamed black activist, who now calls herself Nkechi Amare Diallo, outraged her young black audience in Johannesburg after equating her claim to being ‘trans-black’ with the trans-gender experience of Caitlyn Jenner.
Both are ridiculous people with mental health issues who are using their “condition” to make money and get on TV and should not be “praised”.
I disagree with this guy.
One member of the audience in Johannesburg mocked Ms Dolezal by saying ‘only a white person could claim blackness and tour the world talking to blacks about blackness’
Don’t blame that shit on whitey, I’d say it takes a lefty to condescend that much.
Little known Bible fact. Moses loved surfing.
