01) Alabama Town Revolts After Cops Set Up Asset Forefeiture Scam


“The town hired officers and worked with a judge to maintain the program. Those that were hired were often dressed in camouflage that was tucked into dark assault boots. One alleged victim was Trey Crozier, who lost $1,750 to the Castleberry Police Department.

The 550-person town was so furious about the program Mayor J.B. Jackson, who came up with the idea to stop and confiscate vehicles, was booted from office. A municipal court judge and prosecutor were also ousted. Police chief Tracy Hawsey was forced to resign in February.

Lead attorney Richard Nix thinks more than 100 people were probably impacted by the city’s program. All of the belongings and alleged drugs that were seized by police haven’t been located in the investigation. The totality of cash taken estimates $5,500. He claimed that the chief didn’t follow minimal procedural requirements to perform an asset forfeiture.

01) Discover your Patronus

You have to have an account with Pottermore, in order to engage in these types of “surveys”…But, I enjoy this sort of stuff…So, I went ahead and opened up an account.

I promise not to make a habit of this…but, I wanted to do this one in particular…Open up your own account, if you like. Normally, I will stick with the surveys immediately open to everyone, without additional requirements.

Hmm….

…There is no skill involved here…

…A Fox Terrier…Interesting…I guess…

‘CREEPER Act’ would ban lifelike child sex dolls in the United States…


Date: January 04, 2018

01) ‘CREEPER Act’ would ban lifelike child sex dolls in the United States

“The importation and distribution of lifelike child sex dolls in the United States would be prohibited under legislation that was introduced Thursday.

Rep. Daniel Donovan (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn), along with 10 bipartisan cosponsors, introduced the Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots or CREEPER Act.

No studies have been done to determine whether looking at artificial child pornography or using child sex dolls encourages or prevents a would-be pedophile from acting on their urges.”

What if you just want an extremely anatomically correct doll…but you don’t have sex with it?

You know…this is just another meaningless piece of legislation.

…I don’t want one of these dolls, and to be entirely up front about it…I consider it a sort of insult, for people to suggest that I should use one as a substitute for a real sexual relationship…

…That’s just demeaning…

…On the other hand…I object to these bozos, trying to strip me of my free options…

Why don’t they just call it what it is

The Silicon Harm Intervention Tenet…

…Or, S.H.I.T.!

…That’s all it is.

…You have no idea how hard it was for me to find a reasonable word related to “act” or “statute”, that begins with the letter “t”…

…I’m still not happy with that one…but it accomplishes it’s purpose.

01) An underwear maker, his boy models and the man who tried to stop him

“The story of how a Washington state company used boys in underwear to draw customers and the man with a secret past who tried to stop them.”

I remember this conflict. It’s because of the big stink a few people were making, that many of us became aware of Tiger underwear.

There were some beautiful pictures of beautiful boys on the website…nothing to get one’s panties in a twist, over.
