Oakland police provide proof that license plate readers are creating a database of Americans

Since May 2013, EFF and the ACLU have been engaged in a legal battle with two Los Angeles law enforcement agencies who are refusing to hand over a week’s worth of ALPR data. San Diego County, another jurisdiction, has fought efforts by citizens to obtain access to data that law enforcement has collected on them using ALPRs. Both claim that the records are exempted under the California Public Records Act because they are records of law enforcement investigations. The agencies also argue the public interest in maintaining secrecy in ALPR data outweighs the public interest in learning how and where ALPR systems are being used.

 Vindicated: Gladio B, Paris Terror & ISIS Fakery Admitted

Sibel Edmonds has done extensive research on Gladio B and has recently made the connections to Paris evident in her new interview with James Corbett. What comes to the fore is Turkey’s role in training, arming and exporting radical Islamists. Training took place within the NATO domain, in Turkey and Jordan, whereas the New York Times’ report whitewashes it as petty criminals and illegal immigration into China. Edmonds projects this region to be the next Ukraine, as this area forms what Pepe Escobar terms, “Pipelinestan.” The “democracy” exporting NGOs will now bring weaponized “freedom,” of course. Sound familiar?

“If You Question Authority, You Are Mentally Ill”, Report Finds

Every time a new issue of the DSM appears, the number of mental disorders grows – and this growth is exponential. A century ago there were essentially 7 disorders, 80 years ago there were 59, 50 years ago there were 130, and by 2010 there were 374 (77 of which were “found” in just seven years).

Group finds that punishments in U.S. ally Saudi Arabia nearly identical to those prescribed by U.S. enemy ISIS

Following the lashing of blogger Raif Badawi and leaked footage that showed the public executionof a woman accused of beating her daughter, Saudi Arabia's harsh interpretation of sharia law and its use of capital punishment have come under international scrutiny. For many, the Saudi justice system sounds not unlike that of the Islamic State, the extremist Islamist group which has struck fear in much of the Middle East. This week, Middle East Eye, a Web site that focuses on news from the region and is frequently critical of Saudi Arabia, contrasted a set of legal punishments recently announced by the Islamic State with the corresponding punishments in Saudi Arabia.

Ferguson Cop To Face No Civil Rights Charges, DoJ Recommends

Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.
