On A Tuesday

For your post-Canada Day needs...

Kathleen Wynne is a weasel:

Summer isn't the ideal time for an election — voters and volunteers invariably have better things to do.

But it looks like that's what it's going to happen in Ontario for five ridings that currently don't have MPPs.

The Canadian Press is reporting that on Wednesday Premier Kathleen Wynne will announce byelections in Etobicoke, Scarborough, Ottawa, London and Windsor for August 1.
Be a man and say they were Islamists:

The arrest of two people on Canada Day helped avoid a terrorist attack that would have seen the B.C. legislature targeted by an explosive device, RCMP said on Tuesday.

John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Korody have been charged with the knowing facilitation of a terrorist act, possession of an explosive device and conspiring to commit an indictable offence in connection to an alleged attack planned on the provincial legislature.

The charges were part of a “national security investigation” dubbed Project Souvenir, launched in February based on information received from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.

Officials with the RCMP described the two suspects as “self-radicalized” terrorists who were willing and ready to cause mass causalities on the public. 

“These individuals were inspired by al Qaeda ideology,” Assistant Commissioner James Malitzia told a news conference, adding that it was a domestic threat without international affiliation.

“While the RCMP believes the threat was real, at no time was the security of the public at risk.

They were making a bomb. Yes, I would say there was a risk.

The US-backed Morsi will not resign despite the opposition to him running in the thousands:

An Egyptian opposition spokesman described a speech on Wednesday by President Mohamed Mursi as a declaration of civil war because he ignored opposition demands that him to resign, which have been backed by mass rallies.

Dismissing Mursi's repeated offers of dialogue, Khaled Dawoud, the spokesman for the National Salvation Front, said: "This is an open call for civil war ... The president continues to deny the demands of the Egyptian people that he resign."


Multiple sources have confirmed this document details several confessions of the six Egyptians in Libyan custody for the 9.11.12 bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. 

The document details the involvement of the Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as being involved with and in the funding, support, planning, and execution of the attack

What is unique about this document is that its content wasn't leaked to the press in some sort of salacious move. This is simply an interdepartmental memo from the Libyan National Security offices in Tripoli to the Ministry of the Interior. Written solely as a perfunctory after-action report as the results of the Libyan investigation in the events of that night.

Confucius said:

"In serving his parents, a filial son reveres them in daily life; he makes them happy while he nourishes them; he takes anxious care of them in sickness; he shows great sorrow over their death; and he sacrifices to them with solemnity."

What Chinese law now states:

The Associated Press reports the Chinese government revised a law requiring kids to care for their parents that are older than 60 emotionally and financially.

Filial piety is now mandated after nearly sixty years of communism and with an aging population. Good luck with that.

Scratch a pro-abortionist:

State senator Donna Campbell, who issued the third point of order against Davis’s filibuster (which ended it), has also been the target of extensive verbal abuse from pro-choice protesters, according to her spokesman Jon Oliver.

They’ve received Facebook messages and e-mails saying, “I hope you’re raped” and “I hope your daughter’s raped,” Oliver tells me.

“Lots of language — ‘You’re an effin’ blank,’ ‘You are a traitor to women’ — those kind of things,” Oliver says. “I wouldn’t say anything’s necessarily a direct threat, but they’re the kind of e-mails that make you a little nervous, especially when you start talking about family members: ‘I hope your family members are raped.’”

What Senator Wendy Davis et al attempted to filibuster:

Senator Davis and fellow Texas Democrats are seeking to thwart a bill passed by the Texas House on Monday that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and require abortion doctors to have visiting rights at nearby hospitals. While supporters say the bill protects women’s health, critics reply that the bill will effectively close 37 of the 42 state abortion clinics.

Why the law was proposed:

A new video exposé released Tuesday of the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston, one of three clinics owned by abortionist Douglas Karpen, depicts gruesome details of the practices of an abortionist who is currently facing a criminal investigation for allegedly allowing late-term babies to be born alive then twisting their heads off with his bare hands.

 Another facility, Whole Woman’s Health in Beaumont was the worst violator and had a 17 page report.  Several of the pages and plans for corrective actions were blacked out and remain unknown.  From the pages that were not blacked out, the inspectors noted that staff was not trained in sterilizing surgical instruments and many sterile instrument packages were found with holes in them.  No full-time nurse was on staff as required by state law, and the part-time nurse, who lives in Houston, had never been oriented to the facility.  Staff at the center had never been properly trained, educated, and oriented for their job description, facility personnel policies, philosophy, and emergency procedures. 

That this needs to be explained to some people is the biggest head-shaker.

Police don't kill dogs; bad owners do (at the 3:22 mark):

Police arrested Leon Rosby, 52, after he tried to film a police raid with his cell phone, according to CBS. Police said his loud music and his behaviour was obstructing the officers' response to an armed robbery call. ...

Footage shows Rosby standing on the street with his dog, a Rottweiler, near several police cruisers. Two officers approach him as he puts his dog into a car. They handcuff him, the dog jumps out and runs toward them and the officer shoots the animal several times as bystanders scream. ...

Rosby has filed a complaint against Hawthorne police for killing his dog, one of six complaints he's filed in recent years for harassment and racial profiling, according to Daily Breeze.

The story says he also sued the police department before, saying officers broke his rib when they responded to a domestic violence call. Rosby has convictions including battery and driving under the influence, according to Daily Breeze.
Some dogs are naturally aggressive but with the right owner and right training, they can be controlled. This dog lunged at the police officer and it had to be shot.

"Police don't kill dogs; bad owners do (at the 3:22 mark):"

I invite you to watch the video and read the new article again.

"Police arrested Leon Rosby, 52, after he tried to film a police raid with his cell phone, according to CBS."

Rosby was being arrested for only one reason; attempting to hold the police accountable. It was not his house being raided. He was not attached to the person whose house was being raided. He was just passing by and decided to film what happened.

Who was guilty in that house is beside the point. The police should have been grateful that the event was being documented, especially considering the attitude towards police officers, especially by the bystanders who were heard to remark about why there weren't any black cops (ridiculous I know, but we all know it would have come up).

"It lunged at me" is just an excuse and a poor one at that to anyone who saw that or watched the video. The dog jumped aggressively but it was not a lunge as it was clearly pulled back and there only to display strength. Speaking not only as one who watched the video but one who has been attacked by Rottweilers, I can say that is true.

If you take the side of the policemen, then you are naïve. Do you really think that this displayed the totality and breadth of his abuse of power? Then there is that fact that their approach of Rosby was both without probable cause and/or a warrant.

The cops in this video, particularly the one who shot the dog, all need to be prosecuted. This illustrates why greater police accountability is need and why all sentence for police office who break the law need to be *no less* than double the usual punishment for the same crime committed by regular citizens. They break two laws for every crime they commit; the actual crime and the attempt to use their position to cover it up.

Its only a pity the dog didn't tear a piece out of the cop before being shot.

One notices that no one else was arrested for filming the incident, just the guy being insolent and with the vicious dog who jumped on a cop.

Yes. They *claim* that his loud music, down the street in a car, was interrupting their ability to blockade and raid a house. That is utter crap. He stood there with a camera phone, filming what they were doing. He didn't interfere, approach them or anything else. They wanted no documentation.

Playing loud music in a car is not a crime, other wise every d-bag in town would be jailed for it. Filming what happens in public, especially arrests, is also not a crime.

Vicious dog? How about a good dog? It wasn't until the police harassed his owner did he react. That is their instinct. Considering that the dog didn't go for the throat or bite and pull the man to the ground, which it could have *quickly and easily* done, he was a very good, restrained and well trained dog.

Cops are *not* special and they deserve *no special* rights. The dog saw men harassing his owner and did what a good dog should. We as people saw cops abusing their power and those men should be prosecuted.

I don't really care that Morsi got outed. I never really liked TV detectives anyway.

Harold, you clearly didn't watch the Morsi episode where after solving a murder (the American capitalists did it), they burned down the university.

"I'm going to believe the cops, not a guy with a rap sheet."

If you were just watching the video and had no information about Rosby, would you still agree with the police officers?

Lets review the facts (based on what has been admitted and reported) ;

- Rosby was not their target when they parked in front of that house (otherwise they would have said so)
- Rosby doesn't live in that house (otherwise they would have said so)
- Rosby was suspected to be connected to the person they intended to arrest (otherwise they would have said so)
- Rosby was passing by in a car he rented (that's what they have said)
- Rosby stayed behind they area they blocked off
- Rosby's dog was leashed and when the cops came to harass him, he put the dog in the car

So far, none of things are crimes and are actually quite complicit with the law. Since he was not committing a crime, showed any indication that he may have been, and was not on the warrant, the cops were abusing their power by approaching him to do anything but say "This is a tense situation. Could you please move along to a greater distance?"

Then they cuffed Rosby and started searching him. This is known is legal terms as "illegal search." Without probable cause or a warrant, they broken the law and Rosby's 4th amendment rights.

It took 10 seconds for the cops to kill that dog from the time it exited the car. The dog responded to the men harassing his owner. They didn't given the man time to call off his dog, which had even stopped to sniff the ground. The cop approached the dog in a power stance and was confused as to why the animal snapped.

Rosby's past until that point (none of which I absolve him for) is 100% *irrelevant* to that situation. He could have been a robber, been convicted of assault, or he could have been doctor who makes insulin... and not one iota of it would matter to what was going on.

Besides that, even if they were relevant to that situation, did the police officers know all this at the time? Absolutely not. They didn't know him and he was in a rental car. they couldn't have done a background search even if they wanted to (which they weren't).

The only reason it was even mentioned that he had priors was for what is called "character assassination." They don't have any ability to justify what they did, so they try to sway opinions of Rosby so that they can get a walk on what ever they did.

Did you read how they even said they he was being arrested for his "disruptive presence" there? Notice how that does not mention any priors.

Being a past criminal doesn't brand you guilty in all situations regardless of fact, nor does it give police men to harass you when ever they feel the need.

You don't need to believe either side. Only that which is plain to see and well documented.

The cops are guilty

If I wanted Tolstoy, I'd read him.

So why didn't Rosby leave when asked? Maybe there was another nuisance charge in it for him.

Because he wasn't asked. They proceeded right to arresting him for a crime they fabricated.
