++ The state, arrested a man, Mr. Arnold Abbott, a WWII combat-vet infantryman, an original Civil Rights Movement participant, a genuine Christian who walks the talk, who not only feeds the homeless, but 'teaches them how to fish' so they can grow to sustain themselves. But nope: Mutual aid and eventual self-sufficiency & independence are a no no to the fascist corporatist state, where they must 'permit' you to do x, y, z...and everything else. F'ng travesty.

Cop loses it when man says “God bless you”

http://rare.us/story/cop-loses-it-when-man-says-god-bless-you/

Warning: Video contains profanity.

After issuing a ticket to a young man riding a motorcycle, one Florida police officer started dropping F-bombs.

“Have a good day. Get out of my face before I decide that this might be not the best judgment that I made,” Miami Beach Police Officer Kenneth MacLeod said.

After the man who he ticketed told him “You have a great day, too, sir” and “God bless you,” MacLeod absolutely lost it.

Lolita Grayson was approved for public assistance by the state of Florida, and their four minor children — they have five children altogether — are also enrolled in the free lunch program in Orange County schools, according to ABC affiliate WFTV.

Broward County citizen Lauren Cooley tries to explain the unconstitutional nature of Free Speech Zones, and is threatened with arrest ...Update_-- BTW, Proud American First rightly pointed out the citizen in question should have made a stronger stand for her 1st Amendment rights on campus. After all, she is both a citizen of the US and a taxpayer funding the college.

Tickets issued due to red-light cameras are illegal, says Florida court

When we reach nerdvana, even the law will be automated.

A human court, however, has decided that a current form of automated law enforcement is actually unenforceable, at least in Florida.

I am grateful to the open-eyed bloodhounds at Watchdog for spotting a Florida appeals court ruling.

The judges mulled the fact that private owners of red-light cameras were the ones who sent out tickets. The judges concluded: "Hang on, that's not legal."
