    Who says the U.S. is not a police state? And where are the "good cops" in this video?
    "Just following orders" is no excuse.

    The way it is in a police state, boys and girls:

    "So the cops' excuse for robbing the guy for warming up his own car in his own driveway was because leaving your car running might result in you getting robbed.

    Yeah, like this guy got robbed. BY THE FUCKING POLICE.

    Cops deserve to be hated. They are just another street gang, only they steal more than all the others combined."
    ~ Larken Rose


    Man fined $128 for warming up car in his own driveway


    Nick Taylor, 24, took to Facebook to post a photo of the ticket he received Thursday, which noted that he had left his vehicle on unattended.

    He was charged with a civil infraction.

    "Every person warms up their car." Taylor told WDIV. "I've done this every day for seven years. Every person warms up their car. We live in Michigan."

    He got off easy. The fine for idling (attended or not) in Massachusetts can be ten thousand dollars.

    Unbelievable as that sounds, it is partially true (with a penalty up to $25,000):


    The Massachusetts Anti-Idling Law
    Massachusetts General Law (MGL), Chapter 90, Section 16A,
    310 Code of Massachusetts Regulation (CMR), Section 7.11 and
    MGL, Chapter 111, Sections 142A – 142M
    The Statute, MGL, Chapter 90, 16A says:

    • Penalties can range from $100(MGL Chapter 90, Section 16A) to as much as $25,000
    (MGL Chapter 111, Section 142A);
    • Drivers and/or companies can be held responsible for paying the fine;
    • Local police have the authority to enforce
    the law, as do health officials or other
    officials who hold enforcement authority.

    Government makes their money robbing people.

    No. Most bus depots do not have thirty buses transporting through the depots at the same time. Actually, I doubt any do.
    When police in Mass. pull people over, do they leave their cars running during the time of interaction with their victims? If so, they are in violation of the same "law" they enforce. Do badges grant extra rights?

    In Police State, U.S.S.A. it can be illegal to possess much needed, doctor prescribed, medications in some areas. And, don't dare transport a harmless medicinal plant to a dying relative to ease their pain. This poor grandpa found this all out the hard.


    67-year-old grandpa arrested, jailed for bringing medical marijuana to Texas for terminally-ill granddaughter

    HOUSTON, Texas — A California grandfather spent a night in jail after Texas troopers arrested him for having marijuana-laced cookies and some marijuana in his car. The man’s out-of-state medical marijuana card didn’t get him out of trouble.

    If you’re looking for a place to hide your green — a green bag in the trunk of your car might not be your best option.

    “I’m a grandpa. I never intended to offend the state of Texas,” Phillip Blanton said.

    67-year-old Blanton has been using medical marijuana in California for 10 years, so when he came to Texas to visit his terminally ill granddaughter Michaela he brought it with him — and he brought along a little for her too.

    “I’m a grandpa, so I’m thinking like a grandpa. I’m thinking ‘I’m going to help my granddaughter.’ I’m gonna give her some of ‘Grandpa’s cookies’ and help her with her nausea and vomiting and the pain from the severe chemotherapy they had to give her,” Blanton said.

    Chicago Police Routinely Violate Civil Rights, Withering Justice Department Probe Finds | The Huffington Post

    The Chicago Police Department regularly violates citizens’ civil rights, routinely fails to hold officers accountable for misconduct and poorly trained officers at all levels, according to a sweeping Justice Department probe of the nation’s second-largest police department.

    The report examined not just the on-the-street actions of the police department, but its institutional practices like training, accountability and discipline: The city’s police shot at fleeing suspects who posed no immediate threat, failed to accurately document and review when officers used force and relied on training that is decades out of date.

    The findings echo those of an April 2016 report released by Chicago’s then-new Police Accountability Task Force, which emphasized that the police department must face a “painful but necessary reckoning” that includes acknowledging its racist history and its consequent legacy of corruption and mistrust ― particularly between the department and the minority communities it polices.

    The DOJ also announced on Friday that it had reached an agreement with the city of Chicago to work on creating a court-enforceable plan to reform the department and address the issues aired in the report.

    Justice Department “pattern-or-practice” investigations do not focus on individual incidents, but rather on systemic police misconduct.
