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...

Saturday Night Radio Show on 870AM KRLA

 Saturday Nights at 11PM, starting January 8th, 2011.
You can listen live on line at http://KRLA870.com/
To call us during the show: 1-866-870-5752


This Saturday night, January 15, 2011:

John Seiler, investigative reporter and blogger at CalWashDog.com joins us to breakdown Gov Jerry Brown's budget for CA, Tough Talk Can't Hide Tax/Spend Budget.

We'll talk with John about his most recent post called Mexican View of Government. "...The rationale of the state is not utility nor profit but power--gaining it, conserving it and extending it. The archetype of power does not lie in economics but in war, not in the polemic relationship of capital to work but in the hierachical relationship of commander to soldier."--Octavio Paz

Co-host Chris Thompson, will be kicking up the dust in Orange County GOP politics. Chris and I will host a forum between Deborah Pauly and Allan Bartlett in their challenge against Jon Fleischman for the 1st Vice Chair of the Orange County Republican Party.

Passionate for liberty, the game we are up to with our talk and our guests, is to call out unethical, immoral behavior, inform, inspire, celebrate and proliferate integrity, creative endeavors and individual freedom.

We talk politics, business and culture, to define what is out of integrity and an abuse of power and public trust, and feature leaders, stories and examples for ordinary individuals act and lead to clean it up and be a part of transforming the future of CA such that our best days lay ahead.

Make us your nightcap on Saturday nights in Southern CA, or where ever you are. This is still a happening place, and this little engine, The Martha Montelongo Show with Co-Host, Chris Thomson is revved up to go! Hope you'll join us.

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. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database


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.
