A retired Lockport police lieutenant testified Tuesday that David J. Mongielo was “looking for trouble” when he allegedly called police “Nazis” and used a cellphone to take video of them at a traffic checkpoint.
Dave's trial starts on Thursday at 9:30AM. All who are able to show up please come early, 9am.
Dave refused to show his ID.
Lockport NY police are notorious for their brutality tactics.
We know Dave, he is an example for many who believe in standing up for our rights against the "police state."
Life in the nineties.

Check me out. The top two knuckles of my left hand look as if I’d been worked over by the K.G.B. No, it’s more as if I’d been a catcher for the Hall of Fame pitcher Candy Cummings, the inventor of the curveball, who retired from the game in 1877. To put this another way, if I pointed that hand at you like a pistol and fired at your nose, the bullet would nail you in the left knee. Arthritis.

WASHINGTON — OY. By the time the Bushes and Clintons are finished, they are going to make the Tudors and the Plantagenets look like pikers.
Before these two families release their death grip on the American electoral system, we’re going to have to watch Chelsea’s granddaughter try to knock off George P.’s grandson, Prescott Walker Bush II. Barack Obama, who once dreamed of being a transformational president, will turn out to be a mere hiccup in history, the interim guy who provided a tepid respite while Hillary and Jeb geared up to go at it.
Carl Paladino, elected to the school board has shaken up the Buffalo public school establishment, I would believe.
So the response is to seize power.

New York parents will be forced to return to school for government-run parenting classes if state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr., D-Bronx, has his way.
Diaz is sponsoring legislation that would require the parents of elementary school students to attend four "parent support programs" before their children are allowed to enter seventh grade.
Diaz tells U.S. News mandatory courses are necessary because many parents do not attend optional parent-teacher conferences.
The State mandated parental reeducation camps classes, proposed by Democrat Senator Ruben Diaz, would be prerequisite to your child advancing to the next grade. Under the bill, employers would also be required to provide a paid day of leave in order for parents to attend the government instruction.
Need an outrage to carry you through the weekend? If you’re the parent of a school-aged child, some lawmakers in New York state think your parenting skills could use “enhancement”—and want to force you to attend a series of “parenting workshops” as a condition of your kid’s progress to seventh grade...

And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.
