Confirmed: Polk County, FL schools conducted iris scans on students without permission

Florida parents are right to be outraged at the outrageous privacy violations that took place late last week in at least 3 Polk County, Florida schools.

I just got off the phone with Rob Davis, senior director of support services for the district, who confirmed to me what Florida education activists blew the whistle on here: Students were indeed subjected to iris scans without their parents’ permission.

Ft. Worth Police Killed Before - This Time an Overweight Asthmatic With Taser

A couple of weeks before rubbing out grandpa, the intrepid drug warriors broke down the doors of the home of one Jarmaine Darden, a 34 year old with asthma who was sleeping on the couch. He was ordered to drop to his stomach, which is something that was physically difficult for him to do. They pulled him off the couch and put him on his stomach, and was tased twice in the whole ordeal. After the second tasing, he stopped breathing and died.

No drugs were recovered at the scene.

Rand Paul’s Iowa Coup. His allies control the state GOP, and they’re looking ahead.

It started as an Odyssey.

Two years ago, A. J. Spiker was an unknown, 31-year-old realtor from Ames, Iowa, who read Frédéric Bastiat and dabbled in state politics. He signed on, as many of his friends did, to work for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign. Because of his experience on the state Republican committee and his work as chairman of the Story County GOP, he was asked to serve as vice chairman of Paul’s Iowa effort. At first, Spiker thought it would be only a title, and that he’d rarely, if ever, interact with his political hero. “Usually, presidential candidates stay out of what’s happening on the ground,” he explains in a phone interview. Then he got a call: Paul was coming to Iowa, and he wanted to hit the road.

The Paul campaign tapped Spiker to be the driver. He went to his driveway, opened the door of his white Honda Odyssey minivan, and began to clean out his three kids’ toys. A few weeks later, he, Paul, and a couple of senior aides were on Interstate 35, cruising through the cornfields and talking about economics. The Paul crew stopped at diners, slept in motels, and organized rallies and fundraisers from their smartphones. Paul would do radio interviews from the van, and when they weren’t discussing philosophy as a group, Spiker would prep the congressman about the next town and give him the all-important names of the local officials.

Those close to the family say the victim lived nearby and heard his neighbor’s burglar alarm. Neighbor Jerry Wayne Waller then apparently went outside to see what was going on.

Drug Czar's Office Withheld Alcohol Data From Report on Drugs and Crime, Now Refuses to Release It
