gang of murderers
who have taken the strength
sapping the life
of an innocent being
kiss of death
as a final act of degradation
such bravery 
in human ‘entertainment’

Look at the incredible kindness shown by bullfighters. After degrading the bull in front of thousands of people as if it was some sort of inanimate play thing, and then stabbing the bull several times, the bullfighter waits until the bull doesn’t have the strength and ran out of enough blood to not be able to stand up, so he’s no longer a threat, the matador gives the bull a sweet kiss. What an absolute sweetheart.
If any of you wish to complain about this, all you have to know is that people have been doing this for hundreds of years.
And we all know the equation:
the longer something has been going on = the more ethical it is.
Anybody who doesn’t agree with this formula, had the nerve to actually use their brain.

How to Record Police Encounters Without Losing Your Video | Police State USA
Technology is a double-edged sword.  It has enabled the government to become more intrusive than ever with its online spying capabilities.  However, cheap and discreet recording devices make it much more feasible to hold cops on the street accountable.
Police State USA encourages holding government officials accountable but advises everyone to research the laws in their own states regarding secretly recording audio conversations (Read more: The Reporter’s Recording Guide).  Encounters with police officers in public generally do not fall under such restrictions, particularly after the recent court decision in Illinois.
Here, we intend to look at the technologies that facilitate that recording.
Streaming App for Cellphone
Ustream is a cell phone application that allows a user to begin recording video and audio — and simultaneously stream the data to an online account — at the click of a button.
If you are in a tense situation with the police, click the app button and the rest is done automatically.  While running, it doesn’t look like a streaming app.
The video files will then be available online when viewing the user’s Ustream account.
Pros:
Easy to use.
Preserves video even if cell phone is confiscated.
Does not give obvious clues that the app is streaming.
Reputable app with product support.
Video/audio quality correspond to user’s phone capabilities.
Cons:
Internet uploads depend on having a sufficient phone signal.
May not be compatible with certain phone operating systems.
Presence of a cell phone will always draw suspicion of recording.
Discreet Keychain Camera
This tiny recording device looks just like a vehicle remote-starter that might be found on your key chain. It’s an inconspicuous option for video and audio recording that is unlikely to be seized by police. To recover the video, the device must interface with a computer at a later point.  The video is stored on a removable memory card.  The price is unbeatable, and with a large micro-SD card it can record for 2.5 hours.
Even if an officer confiscates a a keychain from someone, it is unlikely to be determined to be a recording device and will more than likely have its evidence intact after the keychain is returned.
Pros:
Low price!
Tiny size.
Discreet.
Easy to use.
Always with you.
Unlikely to be confiscated.
Useful even if there is insufficient cell phone tower signal.
Cons:
Not easy to aim when the keys are in the vehicle ignition.
Lower quality video/audio.
If device is lost, evidence is lost.
Cheap import item;  Little/no product support.
Mixed product reviews.  “You get what you pay for.”
Discreet Pen Camera
Stick this “pen” in your pocket for discreet video/audio recording.  It’s another inconspicuous option for documenting interactions with public servants that is unlikely to be confiscated.  To recover the video, the device must interface with a computer at a later point.  The video is stored on a removable micro-SD memory card.
Similar to the keychain camera or other discreet recording devices, this item is unlikely to be confiscated.
Pros:
Low price!
Tiny size.
Discreet.
Easy to use.
Easy to keep with you.
Unlikely to be confiscated.
Useful even if there is insufficient cell phone tower signal.
Cons:
Lower quality video/audio.
If device is lost, evidence is lost.
Cheap import item;  Little/no product support.
Mixed product reviews.  “You get what you pay for.”

Last night, we watched “If A Tree Falls”, a documentary on the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), specifically about cases of arson caused by members of the ELF in the 90’s that lead to the prosecution of these individuals as “terrorists”.

First, some notes on terrorism in general. In the…

NYPD twitter campaign implodes, flooded with photos of police abuse

Just before 2 pm EDT, the New York City Police Department called via Twitter for photos of citizens with its officers. Almost immediately the campaign #myNYPD seemed to backfire, as users flooded the hashtag with photos decrying alleged police brutality.
