Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

Sat Nov 14, 2009: Feel under seige? Don't know how much of your $ "the Man" will let you keep, to get by? Time to Unplug The Political Machine!



Join me on the air, Saturday at 10 AM PT on CRN Digital Talk Radio, & on
CRNtalk.com CRN 1
Call in number: 1-800-336-2225

Had enough? There's a new game in town! It's big. In California it's called The Citizen Power Campaign. It's purpose: Unplug the Political Machine! If you're not in CA, listen up, because the political machine that is sucking us dry is well established and expanding where you live too.

Public Employee Unions are now the most powerful special-interest group in Sacramento because they have special powers that no one else has.
Join me with my guest Mark Bucher to discuss what exactly is the problem? And what's the solution?

You want to make a difference, have a purpose, produce measurable results? Make politicians accountable to the voters? Good. Listen up.

Dr Jane Orient, Executive Director for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons joins us to share the massive amount and type of backlash they are witnessing from doctors against the AMA, for their endorsement of the Health Care Bill.

I'll also give you a brief report on my experience with Babe's with Bullets (TM) Ladies Action Shooting Camp this past week. It was a blast! I learned a lot. Without discipline, focus, practice and repetition to ingrain the right habits, one can not succeed, but with the right skills, the commitment to learn them, to practice and to be responsible and accountable, target range accuracy becomes the rule. I'm going back for more in April, to accomplish my goal to perform at the level of excellence.
The lines are open. I hope you put us on your calendar, tune in, give us a call, and join us for hot talk radio, Saturday at 10AM PT, one fast hour on CRN 1

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko.

Key

Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
