+Jihun Kim They still need to use it, and the bus isn't free. They are technically paying for it through proxy.

Domestic terrorism at its finest.  And people are scared to death about ISIS/ISIL.  Freaking kills me, every time.

One afternoon this past April, a Florida mom and dad I'll call Cindy and Fred could not get home in time to let their 11-year-old son into the house. The boy didn't have a key, so he played basketball in the yard. He was alone for 90 minutes. A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived—having been delayed by traffic and rain—they were arrested for negligence.

They were put in handcuffs, strip searched, fingerprinted, and held overnight in jail.

It would be a month before their sons—the 11-year-old and his 4-year-old brother—were allowed home again. Only after the eldest spoke up and begged a judge to give him back to his parents did the situation improve.
...
"He went back there and spoke to the judge for about ten minutes," said Cindy. "And then the judge came out and called the two lawyers to the bench and talked to them for about 10 or 15 minutes. And with that, our lawyer came to us and said that if we admitted that we didn't know that it was wrong to [let our son] stay in the backyard, but that we know now that it's wrong and we will never let it happen again, and that we will explain this to our son, he would let the children come with us."

Cindy and Fred promised. The judge released the kids and closed the case.

But that is not the end.

That was civil court. Next, Cindy and Fred will head to criminal court to plead "not guilty" to the neglect charge. Naturally, they hope the entire case will be dropped.

In the meantime, to comply with all of the CPS dictates, Cindy and Fred are attending parenting classes. They are also going to therapy. The kids are attending "play" therapy.

This summer, as part of the deal, the older boy must attend day camp. The younger must attend day care. The reason, Cindy thinks, is that years ago there was a girl who disappeared while in foster care and it turned out that no one had been keeping track of her whereabouts. If kids attend day camp or daycare, their whereabouts will always be accounted for.

I asked Cindy how she and the kids spent last summer.

"We did little projects, we would go to the beach," she said. Or they would visit dad at work. She had been planning to enjoy another low key summer with them.

Instead, she will be at home while her kids are in a program mandated by the state.

Cindy and Fred cannot be sure who called the cops and turned their lives upside down. (They have their suspicions.) But they do know who told them they needed to take parenting classes, get therapy, and promise never to let their kids play in their own backyard without a watchman again. They know who took their children away.

And you know, too.
An interview with two parents who lost their kids... over nothing.

Why the hell would police chase a car into a residential neighborhood and then keep going after two children were run down? What were they thinking?!

This tragedy should never have happened. Nationwide, our police are out of control. Their management, policies, and unions are ineffective, undisciplined, and out of control. The DAs office cannot and will not control them. Citizens must reassert their authority. And police must face criminal consequences when their negligence causes serious injury and death to civilians.

There was a recent piece I heard on NPR, or Progressive Talk Radio, about an anonymous cop forum discussing the best ways to plant evidence, and how to hide it from your superiors. Stuff like keeping a baggie of cocaine residue, so that you can place the residue on someone's stuff, but if your superior caught you with it, they wouldn't be concerned as you're not holding 'evidence'.

I'll have to find the article.

After Iceland suffered a heavy hit in the 2008-2009 financial crisis, which famously resulted in convictions and jail terms for a number of top banking executives, the IMF now says the country has managed to achieve economic recovery—“without compromising its welfare model,” which includes universal healthcare and education. In fact, Iceland is on track to become the first European country that suffered in the financial meltdown to “surpass its pre-crisis peak of economic output”—essentially proving to the U.S. that bailing out “too big to fail” banks wasn’t the way to go.

The model that they had was correct in jailing the bankers, but we are talking about a nation the size of 323,000 people. Recovery on that scale at this speed is most possible given that.
