Men who killed black man in racial attack in Australia – revealed

Clinton David Rintoull and Dylan Giuseppe Sabatino bashed Sudanese refugee Liep Gony to death minutes after one was heard yelling: “I guess I’ll go and take my anger out on some niggers., have finally been revealed.

They have tried to conceal their faces in fear of retaliation…..”fear of retaliation”, sounds funny coming from two guys that decided to beat a guy to death because he was a “black”.Rintoull pleaded guilty to murder and was jailed for 20 years with a minimum of 16 years. Sabatino, 21, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and must serve at least six years of a 10-year term. The terms in itself is part of the problem

BTW – Im guessing with surnames of Rintoull and Sabatino, your family is certainly not “natives” of Australia and once moved to Australia to make a better life for themself.

Special Interest Groups free to throw more $$$ at politicans, Justice System fails

Sigh!

I guess we really do have to leave it up to the people we elect to make sure any money given to them does not influence them…Im sure there is a joke it that line somewhere.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court threw out a 63-year-old law designed to restrain the influence of big business and unions on elections Thursday, ruling that corporations may spend as freely as they like to support or oppose candidates for president and Congress. The decision could drastically alter who gives and gets hundreds of millions of dollars in this year’s crucial midterm elections.
By a 5-4 vote, the court overturned two of its own decisions as well as the decades-old law that said companies and labor unions can be prohibited from using money from their general treasuries to produce and run their own campaign ads. The decision threatens similar limits imposed by 24 states.

Well I guess the supreme court and congress are not looking out for anyone but themselves.

Advocates of strong campaign finance regulations have predicted that a court ruling against the limits would lead to a flood of corporate and union money in federal campaigns as early as this year’s congressional elections.

”It’s the Super Bowl of bad decisions,” said Common Cause president Bob Edgar, a former congressman from Pennsylvania.

The opinion goes to the heart of laws dating back to the Gilded Age when Congress passed the Tillman Act in 1907 banning corporations from donating money directly to federal candidates. Though that prohibition still stands, the same can’t be said for much of the century-long effort that followed to separate politics from corporate money.

The decision’s most immediate effect is to permit corporate and union-sponsored political ads to run right up to the moment of an election, and to allow them to call for the election or defeat of a candidate. In presidential elections and in highly contested congressional contests, that could mean a dramatic increase in television advertising competing for time and public attention.

Grab some popcorn and watch that special interest money roll in…does that mean now we get an Obama channell everyday of the year instead of just through the election period?

Man that killed Abortion Doctor, allowed manslaughter claim.

Sigh!

According the the mail times:

A judge has again refused to block confessed killer Scott Roeder from arguing his belief that the shooting death of a Kansas abortion provider was a justified act aimed at saving unborn children.
The 51-year-old Roeder has admitted killing Dr. George Tiller last May. He wants to present evidence that he did so in the honest belief that he was justified — a defense that could lead to a conviction on the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors say that defense is invalid because there’s no evidence Tiller posed an imminent threat at the time of the killing.

But the judge dealt prosecutors a setback during a hearing Tuesday, saying that until the defense decides which evidence it will present, it’s difficult for him to rule on its admissibility.

What is the court system, the justice system and the human race coming to.

Feds to issue new medical marijuana policy

Smoke up!

Federal drug agents won’t pursue pot-smoking patients or their sanctioned suppliers in states that allow medical marijuana, under new legal guidelines to be issued Monday by the Obama administration.

Two Justice Department officials described the new policy saying prosecutors will be told it is not a good use of their time to arrest people who use or provide medical marijuana in strict compliance with state law.

The guidelines to be issued by the department do, however, make it clear that agents will go after people whose marijuana distribution goes beyond what is permitted under state law or use medical marijuana as a cover for other crimes, the officials said.

Fourteen states allow some use of marijuana for medical purposes: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.

Cheech and Chong are very happy today
