Police apologize after raiding home for drugs, only to find innocent family | Fox News

“…we want to publicly apologize to the family, and acknowledge what a frightening and disconcerting experience this must have been for them”.

You’ve got to be kidding, “Frightening and disconcerting”, fuck you, how about “terrifying and scarred for life”. You crashed into this family’s house — with five young children present — like a military raid,  on the basis of an informant’s tip? Lawsuits are not enough. This level of abuse of authority should result in jail time and you should never work anywhere near law enforcement again. This is not the same country I learned about in civics class. Remind me to never go anywhere near Grand Junction. If the residents will put up with this sort of crap there is something really wrong there.

“Authorities in western Colorado apologized to a family with several young children after officers smashed their way into a home, mistakenly thinking a large stash of drugs was inside.Grand Junction police received a tip Wednesday that methamphetamine was inside a home in the neighboring town of Clifton. The informant provided an exact address and specific details about where officers could find the drugs.Armed with a search warrant, sheriff’s deputies and police officers knocked on the front door but no one answered. They plowed through the door and broke multiple windows to get into the home, only to find the innocent family. Two adults and five children between the ages of 3 and 12 live there.”

Big Government Cracks Down On … People Sharing Books | PJ Media

I guess they have rounded up all the mattress tag violators and are looking for something else:

Near my father’s home, something that looks like a large birdhouse has appeared on someone’s property. It’s one of those “little free libraries” that you might have seen — they’ve popped up all over the place.The idea is simple: If you want a book, you take a book and leave another in its place. It’s a nice, sweet idea that has worked out remarkably well, considering how many folks out there are Grade A jerks.Speaking of jerks, however, the government is cracking down on such book sharing.

Sources: Tens of Thousands of Files from Clinton, Blumenthal Computers Available on Deep Web | PJ Media

“With respect to potential computer intrusion by hostile actors, we did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail domain in its various configuration since 2009 was hacked successfully. But given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence,” said Comey.A congressional source who has met with a whistleblower commented that “even a Hillary supporter should want the public to know what foreigners took from her private servers, especially if it is damaging to her. Otherwise the candidate could be blackmailed by a foreign power.”Developing…

Confessions of a Hillary Insider – NO QUARTER USA NET

I am shocked at the audacity of Hillary Clinton to decry Donald Trump as a birther because her campaign not only pushed that item in a bid to discredit Barack Obama, but mounted a sustained campaign attack Obama on a broad array of issues. How do I know? I was part of that effort and was in regular email and phone coordination with Sidney Blumenthal. Sidney was the conduit who fed damaging material to me that I subsequently posted on my blog.In some cases Sid Blumenthal actually provided a draft piece that I would slightly modify and publish under my name. Most of the time, however, Sid provided background information and researched material that I would use to craft pieces. How many? I am providing the links to 63 blog articles that I posted (and in one case was posted by Susan Hudgens, who assisted with the blog) between January 2008 and June 30, 2008.

How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat – The New York Times

The sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960s to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead, newly released historical documents show.The internal sugar industry documents, recently discovered by a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, and published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that five decades of research into the role of nutrition and heart disease, including many of today’s dietary recommendations, may have been largely shaped by the sugar industry.“They were able to derail the discussion about sugar for decades,” said Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine at U.C.S.F. and an author of the JAMA Internal Medicine paper.
