Norfolk police officer sues garage after trip on 999 call 2

PC Jones, ‘sow’ is such a fitting epithet for you.

Reminds me of those numpties who sue McDonald’s after spilling piping hot coffee on their crown jewels.

Steve Jones at kerb where PC Kelly Jones alleges she was injured

A police officer is suing a petrol station owner after apparently tripping on a kerb on his property when called to reports of a suspected break-in.

PC Kelly Jones, 33, says she injured her leg and wrist at the filling station in Thetford, Norfolk, on 25 August last year.

She was not available for comment. Petrol station owner Steve Jones said he found the case “shocking”.

Police said the claim appeared to be “instigated privately” by the officer.

Mr Jones said PC Jones tripped and fell and that he helped her up, but did not think she was hurt.

Hear those squeaky wheels, lushes and reprobates? That’s the sound of the latest bandwagon rolling into town. Its name: “marriage equality”.

The way our money moves: Cascadia defined by regional economy Reply

In a recent article published on Facts CoExist theoretical physicist Dirk Brockmann argues that state boundaries are often arbitrary and out of date, no longer representative of how we communicate or function as a modern society. By tracking dollar bills he has created a series of maps redrawing state borders by how our money moves, which more accurately portrays distinctive areas based on regional economy.

I Am Sick of Veterans Who Wave the Flag and Send Others Off To Die Reply

By James Glaser

A World War II vet told me something once that I have found to be true:

“If you walk into a VFW or American Legion Post bar and hear some guy telling everyone what a hero he was and how he fought the enemy so well, but at the end of the bar there sits a man alone not talking to anyone, chances are great that the silent man was the one who really saw the thick of combat, while the braggart never even saw action.”

Mother who went to court in failed bid to stop brain tumour son having radiotherapy says he is a shadow of himself after 30 sessions Reply

The Daily Mail

A mother revealed today how her eight-year-old son is ‘not the boy I know any more’ after he went through radiotherapy treatment she controversially fought hard at the High Court to prevent.

Sally Roberts, of Brighton, East Sussex, who lost a high-profile case last year to stop the treatment for her son Neon’s brain tumour, said he ‘just crumbled into me’ after the radiation therapy.

The 37-year-old said Neon has gone through 30 radiation sessions since the court battle and is now ‘broken’ with chronic fatigue, ‘grey and fragile’, ‘cries over the smallest things’ and ‘barely eats’.

DorothyDayShe lamented the encroachment of the state and the perils of the welfare system. She once compared abortion to genocide and the U.S. government to Nazi Germany. She cheered on income tax resisters, dismissed the benefits of the minimum wage, and worried about the decline of freedom in an increasingly bureaucratic society.

Class vs. “Identity Politics,” Intersectionality, Etc.: Some General Observations Reply

By Kevin Carson

Those of us involved in various justice movements of the Left sometimes argue among ourselves as though the struggles for class, racial and gender justice existed in a zero-sum relationship.

Many people in the workers’ and economic justice movements complain — rightly so in my view — that “identity politics” in far too many cases became a substitute for class struggle, with racial and gender justice movements led by upper middle-class managerial-professional types focusing almost entirely on equal representation in the professions and boardrooms at the expense of economic justice. This approach is commonly derided as “black, female, etc., faces in high places.”

The Death Penalty for Marijuana Possession 5

Popehat.Com

TJIC alerts us to the tremendously disturbing story of Jonathan Magbie, a 27-year-old quadriplegic sentenced to ten days in jail for his first offense — possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Because the Washington D.C. jail was incompetent to meet his special medical needs, including his dependence on a ventilator, that was a death sentence — Magbie was dead within four days.

The law makes Judge Judith Retchin absolutely immune for sending Magbie to his foreseeable — in fact, probable — death. But she is morally culpable. I submit that it is not an exaggeration to say that Judge Judith Retchin murdered Jonathan Magbie. As one might say in a twisted real-life game of Clue, it was Judith Retchin, in the courtroom, with a brutally indifferent and incompetent prison system.

Boggs Center to Nurture Community Leadership
March 25, 2013 – Day One of the Occupation of Detroit
Contact: Ron Scott & Shea Howell – 313-282-7669 – howell@oakland.edu

DETROIT, MI – Today is a sad day in Detroit. The usurpation of civic power by the State marks the end of the illusion that representative democracy has the capacity to secure the life, liberty and happiness of our people.

Grace Lee Boggs says, “It is time for the formation of a Detroit Council of Organizations which would include the City Council and all organizations working at the community level. This would be a place for discussion and struggle over direction. Each person should seize this time to do something positive in her/his neighborhood to create the beloved community. It is also time to read and discuss articles on revolution.”

The KKKrazy Glue That Holds the Obama Coalition Together 1

By Steve Sailer

We are constantly told that the GOP is doomed because it’s the party of straight white men. That may well be true, but few have asked: How can the diverse Democrats hold together? How can special interests as different as blacks and gays be kept in sync?

The answer appears to be: The Obama coalition can stay together only by stoking resentment—and, indeed, hatred—of straight white men. This naked animus is rationalized by projecting the hate felt by the victorious Democrats onto the losers:

Yes, Pinochet Really Was an Asshole… 1

…no matter what some “libertarians” think.

By Gavin McInnes

With the passing of Hugo Chávez, we got a lot of crocodile tears from liberals claiming we had “lost a friend” who “lifted the poor and helped them realize their dreams.” Jimmy Carter told us that he “never doubted Hugo Chávez’s commitment.” The Nation lamented that “he wasn’t authoritarian enough.” I haven’t seen this much love for a Latin American tyrant since Che Guevara became a T-shirt.

But if we’re going to perform oral sex on every despot who can’t pronounce the letter “J,” why not Pinochet?

Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News

A new United Nations study has found that more people around the world have access to a cellphone than to a working toilet.

The study’s numbers claim that of the world’s estimated 7 billion people, 6 billion have access to mobile phones. However, only 4.5 billion have access to a toilet.

At a press conference announcing the report, U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson announced the organization is launching an effort to halve the number of those without access by the end of 2015. More…
