Pot Prohibition Makes Self-Defense Illegal:

() When a stranger forced his way into her apartment, tackled her, punched her repeatedly, and tried to cover her mouth with a cloth, Krissy Noble says, she did what she thought was necessary to protect herself and her unborn baby. She grabbed a handgun from the coffee table and shot the man three times, then ran to a neighbor’s apartment and asked her to call the police.

Although local prosecutors agreed that the shooting was justified, Noble faces charges that could put her behind bars for years, thanks to a marijuana conviction that made it illegal for her to possess firearms. Her case shows how drug prohibition and indiscriminate gun laws conspire to deprive people of the constitutional right to armed self-defense.

The Metropolitan police are increasingly dropping investigations into serious crimes such as sexual offences, violent attacks and arson within hours of them being reported, the Guardian can reveal.

The UK’s largest force “screened out” 34,164 crimes without further investigation on the day they were reported in 2017, compared to 13,019 the year before. In the first five months of 2018, 18,093 crimes were closed in 24 hours, putting the number for the year on track to exceed last year’s total.

The figures, obtained under freedom of information rules, included a growing number of sexual offence cases that were closed in a day, rising from 20 in 2016 to 49 in 2017 and 32 in the first five months of 2018.

(Jake Tapper) When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

My Commentary: This one’s for the “only the police and military should have guns” cultists, who proselytize for all personal self-defense to be stripped away from innocent and peaceful individuals, by force (of course), and outsourced to agents of the State, also by force (of course) – and take this position with virtually no regard for the quality of service being provided, as would be expected in the case of irrational fanaticism.

Morally Defensible Reasons Not to Pay Taxes in America

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “I Don’t Trust the Government,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Stockhold Syndrome: a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. Nathaniel Friedman (@freedarko): There is no morally defensible reason to not want to pay taxes and I’d even say if you don’t like taxes you’re immoral and maybe evil”

My Commentary: War on Drugs. Police brutality. Victimless “crimes.” War on Terror. Drone-bombing innocents. Wars of aggression. Empire-expanding imperialism. Overthrowing sovereign nations. These are just a few reasons to rightfully Withdraw Consent from a corrupt government (although this is precisely when one first discover their inability to legitimately opt out of even a portion of this State-Sponsored crime-spree, illuminating the fact that taxation is just a clever form of THEFT)…
