$7.5mn military-grade protection: NYPD buys new equipment for patrol officers

The shootings of police officers in Baton Rouge and Dallas have prompted the New York Police Department (NYPD) to buy $7.5 million worth of military-grade protection equipment for on-duty officers. Police Commissioner William Bratton told a news conference on Monday that the NYPD has purchased 20,000 military helmets, 6,000 military heavy duty bullet-proof vests, trauma kits, and ballistic doors and windows for patrol cars, Reuters reported.

The U.S. Blew $1.4 Billion on Abstinence Education in Africa

That is the amount of money the U.S. spent over a 10-year period from 2004 through 2013 promoting abstinence before marriage as a way of preventing HIV in 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Unfortunately, according to the most comprehensive independent study conducted to date of the effort, the money was more or less wasted. A rigorous comparison of national data from countries that received abstinence funding under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with those that got none of the funding showed no difference in the age of first sexual experience or in the number of sexual partners or teenage pregnancies—all aspects of behaviors that have been linked to a higher risk of becoming infected with HIV.

“Jaws” ain’t over till the Sheriff meets the Shark

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was finally “persuaded” not to step onto the podium in Philadelphia of the Democratic Convention that was meeting to ratify the election outcome that she helped engineer. If this were a Hollywood movie, producers would be waving scripts in the air while screaming, “Where’s the third act? They took out the third act!”

Chicago Police Cost Taxpayers $18.6 Million in Police Brutality Lawsuits So Far This Year

One year after the city of Chicago fired a police review investigator for finding several police shootings unjustified, the city continues to dish out millions of dollars in police brutality settlements, including $18.6 million so far this year. The most recent settlements were approved last week; three cases totaling $4.72 million, including the last of 25 lawsuits stemming for a rogue cop named Jerome Finnigan. But Finnigan, who is now serving time in prison, is hardly the only dirty cop responsible for the slew of lawsuits that have cost Chicago taxpayers more than $500 million over the past decade.

Here are the new tactics police are preparing to roll out in your community

Following the recent events in the United States, which have resulted in armed civilians taking on police officers—namely in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and most recently in Kansas City, Kansas — police forces across the country are set to adjust their strategies and tactics. An interesting detail to note is that on July 11, 2016 — following the first deadly attacks on police officers that occurred in Dallas — Reuters reported police were set to rethink their tactics in nearly half of America’s 30 largest cities. They evidently didn’t act swiftly enough (a number of deadly attacks followed shortly after). It’s either that or the suggested police tactics were never going to address the root causes of the problem we are facing.

Sign Of The Times: Riot Control Gear Sales Are Soaring Globally

If you pay attention to the news at all, it probably seems like the world has been fraying at the edges lately. In South America, Brazil’s economy is crumbling and Venezuela is on the verge of collapse. In the United States, riots are expectedat political conventions. In Europe, the Brexit vote is threatening to tear apart the EU and the UK. And all over the world, people are becoming sick and tired of the status quo. In nearly every single country, people are losing their faith in major institutions and, in increasing numbers, they are losing their trust in the financial and political elitists who run those institutions.

Texas sheriffs raid raw milk exchanges… real country FOOD from a cow is now illegal in Texas

Buying milk about as close to nature as it gets – directly from the cow – is still a punishable offense in many areas of the U.S., and residents of the Houston, Texas, suburb of Katy were reminded of this recently, after being paid a visit by police officers for the “crime” of buying and selling raw dairy products on private property.

Whether Or Not Russians Hacked DNC Means Nothing Concerning How Newsworthy The Details Are

As you almost certainly know by now, on Friday Wikileaks released a bunch of hacked DNC emails just before the Democratic Presidential convention kicked off. While Wikileaks hasn't quite said where it got the emails, speculation among many quickly pointed to Russian state sponsored hackers. That's because of the revelation last month of two sets of hackers breaching the DNC's computer system and swiping (at the very least) opposition research on Donald Trump. Various cybersecurity research firms, stating with CrowdStrike, who was hired by the DNC to investigate, pointed the fingerat the Russians.

MAN FILMS SHOOTING HIMSELF IN FACE BECAUSE SOCIAL MEDIA’S GONE TOO FAR

The Internet has thrown up some downright stupid social media crazes in its time – from the iron liver challenge to the condom challenge – but we’ve officially reached peak idiocy now that people are actually pointing guns at their own faces. Yes, that’s right – a shocking new Facebook and YouTube video shows the moment a man willingly shoots himself through his own cheek, swallows the bullet, and then laughs it off.

Credit Card Companies Specifically Target Less Educated And Less Sophisticated Americans

The big credit card companies don’t make much money off of those that pay their bills on time, and so they often specifically target less educated and less sophisticated consumers that don’t really understand the dangers of credit card debt. The goal is to find people that will carry credit card balances from month to month, because that is where the real money can be made. The average U.S. household that carries balances from month to month has approximately $15,310 in credit card debt right now. At an average interest rate of about 15 percent, the profits pile up very quickly for the big credit card companies. After all these years, so many of us still have not learned the truth about credit cards, and so credit card debt is absolutely crippling tens of millions of American families.

Robert Kagan and Other Neocons Are Backing Hillary Clinton

As Hillary Clinton puts together what she hopes will be a winning coalition in November, many progressives remain wary — but she has the war-hawks firmly behind her. “I would say all Republican foreign policy professionals are anti-Trump,” leading neoconservative Robert Kagan told a group gathered around him, groupie-style, at a “foreign policy professionals for Hillary” fundraiser I attended last week. “I would say that a majority of people in my circle will vote for Hillary.”

Democrats Build 8 Foot Wall Around Philadelphia Convention Site

After months spent criticising Donald Trump’s plan to build a border wall as fascist, ignorant and morally wrong, the Democratic National Committee has erected a four mile, eight foot high fence around the site of the convention in Philadelphia. With the explosive contested convention due to kick off at the Wells Fargo Center, it appears the DNC would rather be accused of hypocrisy than be forced to deal with the public – or Bernie Sanders supporters.
