Activist confronts Cop trying to intimidate her

 

Published on Oct 15, 2014

A Saint Louis community police officer calls the employer of a local activist @stacksizshort in an attempt to intimidate and cause her to lose her job.

 

 

From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

 

St. Louis police officer under investigation following call to protester’s employer

 

 

ST. LOUIS   •   Internal Affairs is investigating a police officer who called a woman’s employer to discuss her involvement in Ferguson protests.

 

Leigh Maibes recorded a phone conversation with Officer Keith Novara on a YouTube video in which she questions why he called her boss regarding her involvement and Twitter posts about police tactics used during protests.

 

In the video, she says Novara called and texted her boss, a real estate broker, on Tuesday, about her tweets.

Novara responds that he was giving the broker a “heads up” because he is a south St. Louis business owner, and communicating with them is part of his responsibilities as a South Patrol officer. Novara can then be heard saying that he was warning Maibes’ boss that the phones at the business might be “blowing up,” from people upset about Maibes’ tweets.

Maibes says in the video that beside Novara, her boss only received one phone call from a woman who complained.

The St. Louis Police Officers Association released a statement in response to allegations that Novara tried to “intimidate a local activist.”

The union’s business manager Jeff Roorda said it has hired an attorney specializing in First Amendment rights to represent Novara.

“It is confounding to us as an organization of law enforcement professionals that apologists for the so-called ‘peaceful protestors’ in Ferguson and the Shaw neighborhood defend throwing bricks, bottles and rocks at police officers as ‘freedom of speech or freedom of expression,'” the statement reads. “Then, those very same people feign righteous indignation when a police officer who is fed up with the corrosive, anti-police rhetoric that this particular agitator has made in a public forum on social media, exercises his freedom of speech and freedom of expression in a truly peaceful manner.”

In the release, Roorda says Novara and other officers have received death threats, had threats made against their children or have been subject to cyber-attacks.

“All of this for the mere act of setting the record straight on public statements made by people spreading irresponsible lies and calling for violence against the police,” he wrote. “Police officers are not second-class citizens. They enjoy First Amendment rights and every other right that is enjoyed by every other citizens and we will aggressively defend those rights to our last breath.”

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!soapbox

 

How in the holy hell can a police officer call a citizen of The United States Of America’s employer to inform that employer that their employee is practicing her 1st amendment rights…in hope of getting said employee fired…..for practicing her 1st amendment rights? I’m confused. When did America become The United States Of AmeriKKKa?

 

When did law enforcement agencies in AmeriKKKa decide they have the right to harass and intimidate American citizens who use their Constitutional rights? You see this Ferguson war is a lot deeper than race. It’s not Black against caucasian but instead is freedom & liberty against slavery & control and violation of The United States Constitution.

 

 

First Amendment to the United States Constitution

 

The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.

 

Allow me to repeatabridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble.

 

Ms. Leigh Maibes, aka @stackizshorthas every right under the 1st amendment of the Constitution, to protest peacefully, to transmit a live stream covering the peaceful protest in Ferguson, Missouri (especially since main stream media can not be trusted to report fair and accurate news) and not have her employment in jeopardy while she does so.

 

If this is permitted to happen to her, it indeed will happen to you, me and any American citizen who has need to protest injustice in AmeriKKKa. Show Your Support For Ms. Leigh Maibes, aka @stackizshort as she battler Officer Keith Novara and the entire South Patrol/Ferguson/St Louis Police Department.

Hood Pranks! Not Funny, Dangerous and Racist?

 

Published on Jul 8, 2014

(MyFoxLA) It looked and sounded like a real drive-by shooting. Instantly, the people in one neighborhood ran for cover. But it wasn’t real. It was pranksters shooting a video, hoping it would go viral. It did. The pretend drive-by shooting video got more than 6-million views on YouTube. If you search on the web for “Hood Pranks”, hundreds of videos will come up. It’s a new trend–people harassed and terrified on video.

 

Critics say these “Hood Prank” videos target African American communities. They humiliate unsuspecting people and they’re simply not funny. Yet, these prank videos are getting millions of hits on YouTube. And they’re making the producers, a lot of money.

 

Are they funny or are they racist?

 

 

 

‘GOD’ in sliced eggplant at Baton Rouge restaurant

Baton Rouge restaurant employee finds ‘GOD’ in sliced eggplant

 
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) – When an employee at Gino’s Restaurant in Baton Rouge cut into an eggplant Monday, he found “GOD.”

 

Chef Jermarcus Brady couldn’t believe what he was seeing. “I saw a miraculous image formed by the seeds,” said Jermarcus Brady. “It spelled out the word God!” Chef Brady has many responsibilities, one being cutting, salting and sauteing eggplants.

 

“When you sliced into it, the pattern showed from the seeds that were forming in the inside the letters G-O-D as God,” said Brady. “I couldn’t think of anything. I just had to tell somebody to come look at it.”

 

Brady showed the eggplant to the owner of the restaurant and fellow coworkers and took photos, but he believed it was meant to be shared with everyone.

 

Brady says he is no stranger to life’s struggle, and his faith has gotten him through. He raised four kids on a limited income before becoming a chef. He says the significance of the rare eggplant seeds aren’t lost on him.

 

 
“Through the road, he’s showing me that ‘hey, I’m real’ and that’s the only thing I can depend on,” said Brady.

 

The restaurant’s co-owner, Gino Marino, has been in business for nearly 50 years and says with a find this rare, it is something he will never forget.

 

“You could cut one million eggplants and you’d probably never see that again, it’s that rare,” said Marino. “God is within us and he has different ways of showing it in our lives, and this is just one way of showing it.”

 

Whether it is divine intervention or not, it does not matter to Brady. “I don’t know what it means. All I know is it tells me ‘hey, he’s real’ and there’s nothing that can change my mind about that.”

 

Gino’s is an Italian restaurant near I-10 and College Drive in Baton Rouge.

Published on Jul 8, 2014

“With the 4th of July around the corner, Zack Brown had potato salad on his mind. As any enterprising entrepreneur would do, he initiated a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $10.

 

His appeal is written in a hilarious, deadpan style. For instance, he notes in the Risks section of his campaign that, “It might not be that good. It’s my first potato salad.” At the time I am writing this, he has enticed over 4,100 backers to commit more than $43,000, and counting.”

 

 

While millions die from poverty, disease and guns, this ass gets over $50 grand for this shit.

‘Halt an Imperial Presidency’, Impeach Obama – Sarah Palin 7/8/2014

Sarah Palin on why it’s time to impeach President Obama

 
‘Halt an Imperial Presidency’ Sarah Palin Urges Congress to Impeach Obama

 
(Fox News Insider) Sarah Palin tonight urged Congress to impeach President Barack Obama, saying “a great awakening is due in this country.”

 
Palin said we must send the message that “he is not an imperial president, and lawlessness will not be accepted by the American people.”

 

The former Alaska governor said the tipping point for her has been this illegal immigration crisis. She said Obama and his administration are defrauding Americans with their programs and policies.

 
She also told Sean Hannity that experts have listed at least 25 impeachable offenses.

 

“I really want Congress to do its job, the constitutional power that they have to halt an imperial presidency, to halt this fundamental transformation of America that is making us an unrecognizable mess of a nation at this time,” she said.

 

The one tool that Congress has to halt this lawlessness, Palin said, is impeachment.

 
“And it’s not necessarily, Sean, a lawsuit being filed by Congress because you don’t bring a lawsuit to a gun fight. There’s no place for lawyers on the front line. Where are the front lines in America? They are our borders.”

 

She told Hannity, “Washington is broken. If people care about the future of this country and defense of our republic, they will join this cause of articles of impeachment against Barack Obama because enough is enough.”

 

While Palin said she believes in GOP principles, she said that if the Republican Party continues to stray toward the ‘liberal failed agenda,” she won’t hesitate to unenlist herself from the party.

 

 

Who told this dumbass dicksucking Ho’ she speaks for Americans?

 

 

Senate committee approves broadening of NSA’s authority

 

Published on Jul 8, 2014

The Senate Intelligence Committee passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act in a 12-3 vote late Tuesday evening. Written by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga), civil liberties and privacy advocates fear the bill may potentially expand the controversial National Security Agency’s power to collect information on Americans. The legislation is modeled on 2013’s CISPA bill, which was defeated in Congress after a public outcry. RT’s Ameera David has more on the unexpected passage.
