What people are capable of never ceases to amaze me. Folks are so clever and this blows my mind. It is 240 years old!
I have my misgivings about Glen Greenwald. Sometimes he seems more like an activist than a reporter. However, this seems to fall within the bounds of investigative journalism.
This is not the first time I have heard of the FBI using these tactics. I am a huge fan of hunting down terrorists down. I believe we should put mad dogs down, but does poking a dog with a stick until he bares his teeth and then shooting him count as protecting us?
If the article is accurate then this practice needs to be stopped not just for reasons of justice and liberty but because it will piss off the people who will be the most likely to know of a threat. If they don’t trust the authorities they wont talk to them. This is not a new thought. It is a fundamental principle of law enforcement.
In the BBC’s Toronto Mayor Ford ‘threatened fellow school coach’ Ford has apparently not only used more than just crack, gone on drunken rants about killing people, made crude comments about oral sex at a press conference, and been accused of ordering a jail beating, he is NOW reported to have threatened a teacher and made “players roll in goose droppings.”
He was working as a volunteer school coach and was fired in 2013.
I like the part where he dismisses the documents from the school as “fictitious rumours and allegations.”
Apparently they can’t have him recalled.
Well, if he is re-elected, Toronto will truly have the government they deserve.
I really hope this goes somewhere. This really is a big deal.
Maggy isn’t looking so good.
I’ve been seeing more Teslas on the road lately. Naturally I was curious how they are being made.
This is the future.
I feel like Jeremy Clarkson, “And a man wrings out a towel!”
I love this vid. It reminds me of seeing cool space stuff when i was a kid.
Great article and fascinating pictures.
