NY Police Union Says 'Blood On Hands' Of Police Critics posted 12/21/2014, 6:10 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Protesters and critics of police brutality are to blame for a murderer who killed his girlfriend then two random cops, so says the head of the New York police union, Patrick J. Lynch.
A police union leader's anger boiled over Saturday night as he linked the execution-style slayings of two officers to weeks of protests over NYPD conduct and Mayor Bill de Blasio's efforts to assuage police critics. Protest leaders and public officials strongly condemned the killings, and de Blasio said the murder of cops "tears at the foundations of our society."

Patrick J. Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, charged that de Blasio and the protesters bore blame for an atmosphere of hostility to cops.

"There's blood on many hands tonight," Lynch said at a news conference outside Woodhull Medical Center after ambulances carried away the bodies of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wen Jian Liu.

"Those that incited violence on the street in the guise of protest, that tried to tear down what New York City police officers did every day. We tried to warn it must not go on, it shouldn't be tolerated. That blood on the hands starts at the steps of City Hall in the office of the mayor."

Tensions between de Blasio and police unions have steadily worsened since a grand jury decided not to issue an indictment for the July death of Eric Garner on Staten Island after an officer arresting him for a petty offense placed him in an apparent chokehold. The PBA accused de Blasio of failing to show support for cops, and the PBA sent a flier to its members urging them to sign a form letter telling him to stay away from their funerals if they were killed in the line of duty.
If you don't want people to be hostile towards police, might I suggest not murdering people and crea

Ross Ulbricht Should Be Freed in a Fair Trial posted 12/15/2014, 9:22 AM (Jeffrey Tucker)
[Category: Commentary]
The criminal trial of Ross Ulbricht, the man alleged to be the "Dread Pirate Roberts" who started the darknet's Silk Road website, is coming up soon. As might be expected, the prosecution in the case are engaging in shady tactics, such as not permitting the jury to hear about Ross's own political views.

The website was started with a driving motivation of creating a free marketplace for people to use to exchange peacefully. If Ross shares this view, why is this not a relevant fact

Man Can't Challenge $280K Tax Bill He Probably Doesn't Really Owe, Pa. Court Says posted 12/15/2014, 9:22 AM (PennLive.com)
[Category: Economy]
With undisguised reluctance, Commonwealth Court has issued an order requiring a Philadelphia man to pay a $280,772 tax bill that he probably doesn't really owe.

In fact, city officials acknowledged in court that the tax bill they sent Nathan Lerner was a "jeopardy assessment" based on a fabrication.

The problem is that Lerner didn't follow the right procedural course in challenging it, a Commonwealth Court panel found in a ruling issued this week. And so, the state

"Once, I remember, I ran across the case of a boy who had been sentenced to prison, a poor, scared little brat, who had intended something no worse than mischief, and it turned out to be a crime. The judge said he disliked to sentence the lad; it seemed the wrong thing to do; but the law left him no option. I was struck by this. The judge, then, was doing something as an official that he would not dream of doing as a man; and he could do it without any sense of responsibility, or discomfort, simply because he was acting as an official and not as a man. On this principle of action, it seemed to me that one could commit almost any kind of crime without getting into trouble with one's conscience.

Clearly, a great crime had been committed against this boy; yet nobody who had had a hand in it — the judge, the jury, the prosecutor, the complaining witness, the policemen and jailers — felt any responsibility about it, because they were not acting as men, but as officials. Clearly, too, the public did not regard them as criminals, but rather as upright and conscientious men.

The idea came to me then, vaguely but unmistakably, that if the primary intention of government was not to abolish crime but merely to monopolize crime, no better device could be found for doing it than the inculcation of precisely this frame of mind in the officials and in the public; for the effect of this was to exempt both from any allegiance to those sanctions of humanity or decency which anyone of either class, acting as an individual, would have felt himself bound to respect — nay, would have wished to respect. This idea was vague at the moment, as I say, and I did not work it out for some years, but I think I never quite lost track of it from that time." - Albert Jay Nock, "Anarchist's Progress", The American Mercury (1927); § III : To Abolish Crime or to Monopolize It?
