420 alert: boycott Sturgis

President Thomas Jefferson believed that a standing army without a foreign war to fight will turn on its own people: now it's happening.

Ellsworth Air Force Base will resume training to deploy weapons of mass destruction according to reports.

As the economy of the Midwest slides, South Dakota's polizei are still profiling minority drivers.
Police Chief Jim Bush said that in the early morning hours Friday, Nate Borg, of the Sturgis Police Department, conducted a traffic stop. The location of the stop was in Sturgis on the east bound on ramp at Interstate 90 Exit No. 30. Charges requested are possession of marijuana, possession of specified amounts of marijuana with intent to distribute and commission of a felony while armed with a firearm. The South Dakota Highway Patrol also assisted with a drug dog unit.--from the Meade County Times-Tribune staff, published in the Rapid City Journal:
Cannabis advocate, Emmett Reistroffer weighed in on Amicus lector, the blog of Argus Leader crime and justice reporter, John Hult:
Policing for Profit grades the states on how well they protect property owners—only three states receive a B or better. And in most states, public accountability is limited as there is little oversight or reporting about how police and prosecutors use civil forfeiture or spend the proceeds. Federal laws encourage even more civil forfeiture abuse through a loophole called “equitable sharing” that allows law enforcement to circumvent even the limited protections of state laws. With equitable sharing, law enforcement agencies can and do profit from forfeitures they wouldn’t be able to under state law.
Hult made this chart showing where the loot from drug busts goes:

The large awards to Corson County stand out:
The racial makeup of the county was 60.80% Native American, 37.19% White, 0.10% Black or African American, 0.05% Asian, 0.22% from other races, and 1.65% from two or more races. 2.13% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race. 27.3% were of German ancestry.
Proceeds from seizures are netting less cash for South Dakota's police state after interested party began alerting West Coast and Colorado patriots.

Gov. Chris Christie (earth hater-NJ) is an obese, ethically bankrupt hypocrite: just as Pat Powers is.

Dude - do you know if Obomba has re-appointed Michelle Leonhart to continue running the DEA operation? That would be a huge sign.

The 4 US attorneys in California have gone on the attack again. Does he have the cajones to stand up to these jack-booted thugs? Hell, he can't stare down John Boehner.

Identifying bad actors ahead of a trip to Mexico sends a strong signal that the transparency taking place in Colorado's legislature is critical to making legalization work or it won't sell to voters.

Always good to have you, Duff.
