A look into the sickening world of law enforcement. Proof That Cops Are The Most Dangerous People in Our Society!

Any bailiff that would do this is the same caliber as any 9/11terrorist. Who do these vermin badges think they're fooling? Do they think they are above the law? Cops are on complete power trips. Were they bullied as kids and now feel the need to exercise authority on anything they can to appease their superiority complex? These assholes should be jailed and treated as criminals at least the same as citizens would be if they committed the same crime, not less. They should also be held to a higher standard and a wall behind the court house erected. When a cop is found guilty of a crime or pulls shit like this, he should be put up against that wall. A group of his coworkers are to pull their weapons and shoot him dead. If any of them miss they should be put against the wall as well.

OHP released the dash cam footage of the trooper involved in a scuffle with a paramedic.

There was a stalled car on the side of the road in the way so the Ambulance could not pull over to let the Police Officer pass him on the way to a call, so the Police Officer turns around and pulls over the Ambulance on the way to the Emergency Room to give the Ambulance driver a ticket and picks a fight with an EMT in the process.

Female arrested forcibly strip searched nude by ohio male cops

Fully nude strip searches of females are being forcefully conducted by male police officers, against policy, and in Abu Ghraib torture style, in Stark County Ohio. The women are video-taped and left naked for up to six hours.

Near the beginning of the video you can see the black male officer helping to strip Hope's panties off of her while another male officer holds her down. The woman's bra and panties are removed along with all her clothing, exposing her bare naked breasts, ass, and vagina in front of the male officers. She is eventually completely stripped and left naked and handcuffed on the floor. All this happened merely because 911 was called for help on Hope's behalf when she was hurt in a fight. Hope accidentally showed her dead sister's ID to police, she keeps it with her in remembrance of her sister. So far, five women have come forward with similar strip search experiences at this Ohio jail.

An astounding video uncovered from the archives today shows the BBC reporting on the collapse of WTC Building 7 over twenty minutes before it fell at 5:20pm on the afternoon of more 9/11.

The incredible footage shows BBC reporter Jane Standley talking about the collapse of the Salomon Brothers Building while it remains standing in the live shot behind her head. How did the BBC know that it was going to collapse? And why did they report the collapse when it is clearly standing in the background?

Fujitsu To Develop Vigilante Computer Virus For Japan

January 3, 2012

Japanese Defense Ministry has awarded Fujitsu a contract to develop a vigilante computer virus, which will track down and eliminate other viruses, or rather - their sources of origin

Are 'good' viruses a bad idea? Sophos seems to think so, saying, "When you're trying to gather digital forensic evidence as to what has broken into your network, and what data it may have stolen, it's probably not wise to let loose a program that starts to trample over your hard drives, making changes."

Finland To Legalize Use of Unsecured Wi-Fi

June 11, 2010

The Finnish Ministry of Justice has started preparing changes to a current law that criminalizes using unsecured wireless hot spots.

The reasoning includes the impossibility of tracking unlawful use, the ease of securing networks, and the lack of real damage done by this activity. It is also hard for a user to know if an unsecured network is intended for public use or not. The increased ubiquity of legal, open networks in parks, airports, and other public places has also influenced this move by the Ministry of Justice.

I want privacy because I break the law

If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines, including Google, do retain this information.

I've thought about Schneier's response (that people want privacy for a whole host of reasons, like when we make love, sing in the shower, and do things that are totally legal at the time of law) for some time now and I have come to this conclusion...

Fix SMTP and leave port 25 alone for the sake of spam

April 11, 2005

Larry Seltzer of eWeek, whom I have great respect for and usually agree with, wrote this article on dealing with spam using the controversial tactic of blocking all outbound port 25 access.

The logic behind this is that the vast majority of spam in the world comes from "zombies" (millions of computers that have been hijacked by professional hackers and spammers and are used as attack or spam platforms) that spew out tons of spam directly over TCP port 25 (a standard communication channel used specifically for e-mail). I think this is a bad idea. Here's why:
