If this is so grand an idea Cuomo, why not put it before the People Of The State Of New York, instead you secret away behind closed door and sign an Executive Order to change NYS and Federal law…Just like Sodomite “marriage”, you and 2 other men sit in a closed room and make all decisions for the People Of New York State instead of letting We The People vote on it! You are a fascist and deserve to lose in November!!

Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to speed up the process of legalizing medical marijuana for children with epilepsy.

Cuomo wrote a letter with this request to Acting Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker.

Cuomo cited the recent deaths of two Western New York girls, 9 and 3-years-old, suffering from epilepsy as a reason to make the drug available sooner.

The Compassionate Care Act is set to begin in January of…

Judge Rejects Police Unions’ Challenge Against Stop-And-Frisk Ruling

Originally posted on CBS New York:

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police unions lost their bid Wednesday to challenge a ruling concluding that the city’s stop-and-frisk tactics are sometimes discriminatory — moving the city a step closer toward changing the program.

The stop, question and frisk program has drawn criticism for its effect on minorities, but has also won praise for its role in reducing crime.

In a written ruling, U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres said five police unions representing the majority of the NYPD’s 35,000 employees lacked legal standing to pick up where the city left off when it decided to settle the case last year rather than pursue an appeal.

The unions said a finding of discrimination against minorities within the stop-and-frisk program had damaged the reputations of the nation’s largest police force.

But Torres said unions’ claims rested “on the flawed assumption that anonymous officers who have not taken part in this litigation have…

The outgoing head of the Defense Intelligence Agency says that new players on the scene are more radical than Al Qaeda, and the core Al Qaeda ideology has lost none of its potency.

The nation is no safer after 13 years of war, warns a top US military official who leads one of the nation’s largest intelligence organizations.

“We have a whole gang of new actors out there that are far more extreme than Al Qaeda,” says Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which employs some 17,000 American intelligence collectors in 140 countries around the world.

The down side of the death penalty.

Federal review stalled after finding forensic errors by FBI lab unit spanned two decades:

These unfortunate cases are the down side of the death penalty.

It appears that an overzealous government agency the FBI, in an effort to solve criminal case quickly, they used a technology “DNA hair testing” that was not yet perfected at the time, resulting in the conviction, executions and deaths of scores of inmates.

The potentially wrong verdicts include as many as 2,600 convictions and 45 death-row cases from the 1980s and 1990s where the FBI used hair samples to test DNA before it was fully developed as a crime solving tool.

U.S. officials began the inquiry after The Washington Post reported two years ago that flawed forensic evidence involving microscopic hair matches might have led to the convictions of hundreds of potentially innocent people. Most of those defendants never were told of the…

Oklahoma City bombing conspiracy heads to court

Published on Jul 29, 2014

Jesse Trentadue is taking the FBI to court to obtain evidence he believes will exonerate his dead brother, whose death shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing remains surrounded in controversy. While the law enforcement agency states that Trentadue’s sibling committed suicide while in their custody, some evidence exists to support the claims that his death was actually a homicide. Central to the conspiracy claims are video tapes missing from FBI evidence storage units, which Trentadue hopes the courts can shed light on. RT’s Ameera David takes a look at his claims and what is next in the legal battle.

HOMELAND SECURITY AGENTS RAID HOME TO SEIZE LAND ROVER FOR VIOLATION OF EPA REGULATIONS

Originally posted on :

In another example of how the Department of Homeland Security has expanded far outside the purview of its original function, six vehicles full of DHS agents were required to seize a Land Rover from a couple in Statesville, N.C. due to the fact that the vehicle allegedly violates EPA emission standards.

As part of its mission to “protect the Homeland,” the DHS has been busy seizing imported vehicles that don’t comply with safety and CO2 regulations.

Jennifer and Bill Brinkley were satisfied that their $60,000 dollar purchase of a Land Rover Defender on eBay complied with regulations because it fell into the exemption category of a vehicle 25 years or older.

However, when DHS agents turned up at the property, they compared the car’s Vehicle Identification Number to a list and immediately seized the Land Rover. The couple were not given “a chance to debate the issue.”

SWAT Team Shoots Teen Girl & Her Dog During Pot Raid On WRONG HOME

Originally posted on wchildblog:

Orange County, Florida sheriff’s deputies waging an armed raid for a suspected pot dealer entered a family’s home guns blazing and shot a teen girl and her dog, only to find out the suspect they were looking for hadn’t lived in the home for weeks — despite their claim to have “surveilled” the home extensively prior to the raid. All the cops ended up finding was some perfectly legal ammunition and some pot seeds and marijuana paraphernalia. All charges against the suspect were later dropped, but their dog is dead and his sister lives with horrible back pain due to the deputies’ murder attempt.

WFTV reports:

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A mother and her daughter are suing the Orange County Sheriff’s Office after one of them was injured during a SWAT team search.

The women, who didn’t want to be identified, said the Sheriff’s…
