Two police officers are off the force and a Georgia woman is threatening to sue after she was attacked and stunned by the officer. Ray smith of the Lumpkin Police Department has resigned and Tim Murphy of the Richland Police Department was fired for using pepper spray when trying to arrest Janice Wells. Wells says she was worried that a prowler was outside of her home so she called police. A min long video on the officers patrol car shows the officer pulling up to assist another officer. What happened was mostly hidden by the police car but Mrs. Wells could be heard screaming don't do that, don't do that as the stun gun could be heard repeatedly going off. Lumpkin Police Chief Steven Ogle says the video is shocking. America has become a police state and Tasers are used like cattle prods by cops who are actually following an agenda dictated from the top. The Taser is not a tool of law enforcement, it is a torture device employed to terrorize the public. American Police have become so accustomed to employing Tasers during routine calls that they now use them on people asking for their help and even on bed ridden grandmas and elderly women who pose no threat whatsoever.

This set of six video clips covers an almost taboo controversy to do with freedom of speech. In the discussion, I stress the ethical and logical need for history to be open to revision.

Please note: The original program was just under one hour, and has been edited into six parts, and a few pauses, repetitions and hesitations have been removed. The editing has not in any way changed the sense of what any of the speakers said, and the original program can be viewed here: http://vod.grassrootstv.org/vodcontent/9202-1.wmv

davdo64 Obama, Clinton, Romney and Palin think Afghan is a "good war." They are in no rush to leave either war. Maddow, Obermann, O"Reilly and Hannity all support massive over-spending (over $20 billion a month). Your children and grandchildren will bear this debt burden, along with a failing economy, devalued currency and few opportunities for businesses to grow, hire or expand because of the massive tax burdens that will be foisted upon us to pay for these terrible policy mistakes.
Unpegging of Yuan from US Dollar, drop in car sales to all time low and drop in house sales too, The cash for clunkers failure and stimulus stuff up, adding more debt to the debt laden economy is like pouring gasoline on a fire.

On Sunday afternoon, July 11, 2010, Maria Allwine, a peace and social justice activist, discussed why she is running for Governor of Maryland. Ms. Allwine is member of the Green Party. Her remarks were made before a meeting of the Baltimore chapter of the party. If Ms. Allwine gets the Green Party nomination in the state, she will be on the ballot in the General Election, which is set for November 4, 2010. For background on the Green Party, see: http://www.baltimoregreens.org/
The FBI agents were very patient and not aggressive in any way. It becomes obvious who had called the FBI on this woman as the images of her protests are shown. So the message here is: protest against the genocide state of Israel and get reported to the FBI.
The US empire may be in decline, but Andrew Gavin Marshall says that the US government doesn't seem to realize this. Military policies are working to expand the empire and foreign policy fails to recognize the new powers rising. Where does this leave the United States? And how long can it hang on?
