Burgos Case Mirrors Mcmartin Trial UPDATE

By john robertson, published on Jun 7, 2008

...accused was finally acquitted. I predict that if Lori Frugoli and the MVPD continue to thumb their noses at history, it will repeat itself. Although justice will ultimately grace itself upon the accused, just like in the McMartin case, the shattered lives of many innocent people will never be the same again. "Justice for all" did not apply for the community of Manhattan Beach; for the prosecutors and the police went forward with their lives just as comfortably as before; whereas the community and the victims of their witch hunt, were left to try and put their lives back together again.

The Analog, The Digital, And The High Def

By Crowbar, published on May 25, 2008

...ALONE, need a digital converter.

Come February 17, 2009, all stations will stop analog broadcast and switch to digital. The reason this is happening (at least the official reason) is that the old analog band will be used to help free up transmissions for emergency broadcasters like police and fire departments. It will also allow the auctioning off of other spectrums to companies like ATT to increase wireless broadband technology for faster wireless use.

The other benefit to all television going digital is twofold. One, there will be no more fuzzy pictures. Either your... (more)

Grease Is The Word

By Ed Attanasio, published on May 21, 2008

... are being reported more frequently than motor vehicle break-ins right now in San Francisco. This means that the people who used to steal your car stereo are now absconding with cooking grease from local restaurants.

David Richardson, a 49-year old man from Illinois, was arrested by the police in Morgan Hill, California. He was trying to steal used grease from a Burger King restaurant and pump it into his tanker truck when he was caught greasy-handed.

People are so freaked out over the price of fuel that they’ve resorted to stealing used cooking oil.

Assassination Tango

By DLFerguson, published on May 18, 2008

... grace, precision and emotion. It’s easy to see why Anderson falls in love with the tango when it’s danced this way.

The resolution of the assassination plot comes almost as an afterthought. The hit is botched and Anderson finds himself on the run from the police and the people who wanted the general dead in the first place. The way it all ends may leave you saying: “waitamminit…that’s it?” But then again, considering that this movie isn’t really about the hit at all may mollify those of you who want to see a bloodbath... (more)

In Search Of Bernardina

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on May 16, 2008

... trace. She had never visited a place like Las Vegas, and when she saw large crowds of people along with all the activities that Vegas has to offer she evidently got confused and decided to walk out of the casino. From that moment Julio initiated an extensive search for his mother. He called the police but according to their rules they only investigate after 24 hours.

At the time Amadeo was at work when his brother called and gave him the horrible news. He was very angry and his desperation started in the search for his mother, Bernardina.

He started to look in shelters, ... (more)

Xbox And Hookers: The Coolest Kid In America

By Chris Jones, published on May 14, 2008

...were with a traveling circus.

He further informed the women that it's against Texas state law to discriminate against the disabled, and they have no right to refuse them service.

It wasn't long after the arrival of the two hookers that the hotel clerk finally called the cops. The Police arrived to find the boys in the hotel room with $3,000 in cash, two hookers, a ton of junk food, and a stack of video games.

When asked by the Police why he ordered two prostitutes, Ralph said that's just what you do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament.

Ralph was... (more)

Why Must America Win?

By D. E. Carson, published on May 2, 2008

...great damage to our cause.

The uproar fueled by some politicians and media regarding the treatment of some prisoners of war perhaps exemplifies best what I am saying. We have recently had an issue involving the treatment of a few Muslim prisoners of war by a small bunch of our military police. These are the type of prisoners who were throwing their own people off buildings, cutting off their hands, cutting out their tongues and otherwise murdering their own people just for disagreeing with their cause. And just a few years ago these same type prisoners chemically killed 400,000 of... (more)

Fear And Testing

By J.D. Howard, published on Apr 29, 2008

...handing down Veronia v. Acton, the Supreme Court has turned the clock back to a time when fear and the unreasonable suspicion of perceived behavior was the rule. The Bill of Rights is proof that’s not what the Founding Fathers had in mind

Can anyone say 1984, because The Thought Police are alive and well.

A War On Drugs, indeed. With the huge annual revenues that are generated from the production and sale of illegal narcotics, steroids, and human growth hormones, it looks like business as usual when it involves high level political corruption.

You can’t... (more)

Can The Lakers Get By Without Bynum?

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 27, 2008

... quarter and never looked back.

Luke Walton added 15 points off the bench for Los Angeles, and Pau Gasol and Derek Fisher each scored 14.

By the closing minutes, the Lakers' bench was more interested in a fight in the stands that led to some belligerent fans being taken away by police officers. Even Bryant stuck a peek while teammate Jordan Farmar was shooting free throws at the other end of the court.

On his next touch, Bryant hit a 3-pointer from the right elbow for a 100-78 lead, then took a seat and acknowledged with a thumbs-up his very own cheering section... (more)

New York Acquittal An Indictment On Racism In America

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 26, 2008

By now you have probably heard that the three police officers on trial for the shooting death of Sean Bell in November 2006 were acquitted. A quick recap of the story: Bell was patronizing a sleazy strip club in Queens, NY on the night before he was to be married. He was at the club with two friends celebrating a bachelor party. In the early morning hours, Bell and his friends left the club, they were approached by undercover police officers and following a hail of gunfire, Bell was dead and his two friends were wounded.

It took barely more than 10 minutes for Queens... (more)
