Hey, they gotta eat too.


A campaign against Griffon vultures is gathering pace in France after it was revealed that the carrion eaters had devoured the body of a 52-year-old woman who fell to her death in the Pyrenees.
Major Didier Pericou of the gendarmerie said the woman had fallen down a 300-metre slope while taking a short cut walking with two friends.
"There were only bones, clothes and shoes left," he told The Times.
"They took 45 to 50 minutes to eat the body."

French farmers are now demanding the right to shoot the protected birds after attacks on sheep and cows.
The birds no longer have their diet of carcasses because European health and safety regulations now force breeders to burn dead animals.
The Pyrenees population of Griffon vultures has apparently been affected by an EC ruling that due to danger of BSE transmission, no dead animals must be left on the fields.

They must be extra hungry - I was hunting coyotes over a dead heifer once and it took the vultures 2 days to finish that off.

Up from the grave


LONDON (AP) — A famous German World War II bomber nicknamed "the flying pencil" has spent decades submerged in the English Channel after being shot down in the Battle of Britain. Now, divers are braving dangerous tides to bring it to the surface.
British officials on Friday announced a complex salvage operation just off the Kent coast in southeastern England to rescue the only known surviving example of the German Dornier Do 17 bomber. The operation is under way and if all the preparations go well, the plane will be lifted from the water in three or four weeks.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Wednesday that it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for stealing 559 pounds of explosives last month near Red Lodge.
The theft happened sometime in April when thieves broke into a U.S. Forest Service storage bunker about two miles south of Red Lodge, said Brad Beyersdorf, an ATF spokesman.
Items stolen included emulsion-type explosives, explosive cast boosters and detonating cord.
“The theft of explosives is a top investigative priority for ATF,” said Ken Bray, the agency’s resident agent in charge in Montana. “We are asking for the public’s help in our effort to apprehend and convict those responsible. We are confident that someone can help identify a suspect and we encourage them to call us.”

Denver cops cleared in citizen's asskicking

What the article doesn't say is that Mr Landrau refused to let the cops search his vehicle without a warrant and that led to him being beaten to a pulp. The city of Denver clears the cops, yet they settle with the man for 3/4 of a million bucks because they know they can't convince 7 out of 12 people (civil court doesn't require a unanimous vote) that they were right.
Google the 2009 incident.

*****

DENVER — Three Denver police officers were cleared of any wrongdoing by a department investigation into the 2009 arrest of Alex Landrau that left him with severe injuries, the city said Friday.
Landrau was pulled over for making an illegal left-hand turn in January 2009. He was involved in a struggle with the three officers that left him with severe injuries, photos of which enraged the community.
Investigations by the Justice Department, Denver police, the District Attorney’s office and Denver’s independent monitor all recommended no action be taken against the officers.
A federal lawsuit against the city filed by Landau alleged Cpl. Randy Murr and officers Ricky Nixon and Tiffany Middleton hit Landau with their fists, flashlights and a radio. They also called him a racial epithet, reported the Denver Post.
The city settled with Landau for $795,000 in 2011. The settlement is the second-largest in the city’s history.
“There is insufficient evidence to sustain any allegations of inappropriate force, racial slurs or deceptive conduct,” a city spokesperson wrote.  “Other than reprimands by the Chief of Police for failure to make complete reports, no disciplinary action is taken against any of the involved officers.”

The list everybody talks about. THE list.....

(Reuters) - The number of names on a highly classified U.S. central database used to track suspected terrorists has jumped to 875,000 from 540,000 only five years ago, a U.S. official familiar with the matter said.

Among those was suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose name was added in 2011. The increase in names is due in part to security agencies using the system more in the wake of the failed 2009 attack on a plane by "underpants bomber" Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in Detroit.
Intelligence and law enforcement officials acknowledged in Congress that they had missed clues to that attack despite Abdulmutallab's name appearing in the main database, known as TIDE.

Maintained by the National Counterterrorism Center, the highly classified database is not a "watchlist" but instead is a repository of information on people whom U.S. authorities see as known, suspected or potential terrorists from around the world.

The "Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment" is a master database which agencies use to build other catalogs of possible terrorists, like the "no-fly" list which prevents people who feature on it from boarding airplanes.

Man, her sense of decor sucks.

Another 'Aw Fuck' moment in time


Come back with a warrant, assholes.

California inched closer to passing a gun confiscation bill last week. The bill returns to the Senate for some “non-controversial” amendments and then goes to the desk of Governor Brown. What the people of California need to realize is that this is all a formality. The gun confiscation is already happening and will continue. This legislation would only provide more money to expedite the process.

With all of the major news stories this legislation has been largely unnoticed in the media. What I want all of our readers to understand is that what is happening in California, and will continue to happen, is only happening because people do not know and understand their rights.

The thing that you must understand is that this bill deals with a type of gun confiscation that happens without warrants. Let me quote a Huffington Post article which appeared late last week:

“California is the only U.S. state where law enforcement officials confiscate guns from the homes of individuals not legally permitted to own them. Because gun-confiscating agents do not obtain search warrants, their job involves convincing people to let them into their homes and hand over their guns. If an individual does turn over a gun, he or she can be arrested on suspicion of illegally owning a firearm."


Really? Is this one of the craziest things you have ever heard in your life? This paragraph shocked me.
Your 4th Amendment rights protect you from unreasonable search and seizure. Here is the text of the 4th Amendment:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

We don’t even have to talk about the 2nd Amendment and “shall not be infringed” to understand that the 4th Amendment is also in play here. If they don’t produce a warrant, you are not required to let them in the door. Period.

If you do decide to let them in, and you do decide to hand over a gun to them then you may be giving up your own protection under the 5th amendment:
“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

Made by man, can be defeated by man.

A Washington, D.C.-based engineer is working on the "Drone Shield," a small, Wi-Fi-connected device that uses a microphone to detect a drone's "acoustic signatures" (sound frequency and spectrum) when it's within range.

The company's founder, John Franklin, who has been working in aerospace engineering for seven years, says he hopes to start selling the device sometime this year. He is using the Kickstarter-like IndieGoGo to finance the project.

The device will cost $69 and will be about the size of a USB thumb drive. It will use Raspberry Pi – a tiny, $25 computer – and commercially available microphones to detect drones. He says he imagines that people will attach the Drone Shield to their fences or roofs to protect their home from surveillance.

"People will get the alert and then close their blinds," Franklin says.

Can you say 'Stasi'?

Florida House and Senate budget leaders have awarded Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw $1 million for a new violence prevention unit aimed at preventing tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., from occurring on his turf.
Bradshaw plans to use the extra $1 million to launch “prevention intervention” units featuring specially trained deputies, mental health professionals and caseworkers. The teams will respond to citizen phone calls to a 24-hour hotline with a knock on the door and a referral to services, if needed.

We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’ ”

I know how this is going to end.....
