FERGUSON, Mo. — With racial tensions flaring anew on the heels of another police shooting of a young African-American man, Republican Sen. Rand Paul came here Friday for a “listening session” with local black leaders.
Two employees at a bar in north Harris County by Houston, TX must be very thankful that one of their customers was packing heat last weekend.
About 2:30 am Saturday morning a bartender and waitress were cleaning-up to close the Houston area bar when four armed men burst through the doors. Two of the men proceeded into the bar area and demanded everyone get down on the floor. The other two armed robbers lingered by the door.
I know quite a few in the community refuse to have Facebook accounts, but I came across this poll/question posted by Lex 18 (Lexington, Ky News Station) this morning in my news feed:
Simple question regarding the Kentucky Senate Race- Do you think third party candidates should be included in debates? The comment section is essentially 100% for inclusion of David Patterson, our Libertarian Candidate for Senate here in Ky.

Whitehead discusses some cases that proved the police sometimes are not there to serve or protect anyone, just to defend their own power. They have become militarized, and the 'enemy -combatant' status of the citizen has become de-facto, though not de-jure.

What construction plan do you think they took "off the self"? They are called O-Plans for short (Operational Plans) and can be taken off the self at a moments notice for any contingency.
The military doesn't just show up, look around for a while and then start brain storming about what kind of camp would work best. They already have O-Plans to execute and real world experience helps refine the plans constantly.

*Within the last decade medical professional practice has become a major threat to health. Depression, infection, disability, dysfunction, and other specific iatrogenic diseases now cause more suffering than all accidents from traffic or industry.
