Christopher Dorner and the 6th Amendment

Christopher Dorner has become a hot-button topic as of late. And I feel strongly enough about the topic to emerge from my hiatus on writing. Forgive my absence, I’ve had little free time as of late. I must admit, I feel a bit like Walter in the movie The Big Lebowski when he wonders aloud … Read more »

Man Evicted by City; Billed for Concrete

The Austin police department has managed to successfully stop the next Unabomber. Or so they’d like you to think. Delusions of grandeur hide the reality: That Joe Del Rio was evicted from his home by the city of Austin, and was billed for $90,000 worth of concrete that the city pumped into his basement. Del … Read more »

Why Is It Necessary For The Federal Government To Turn The United States Into A Prison Camp?

There has been no society in the history of the world that has ever been 100% safe.  No matter how much money the federal government spends on “homeland security”, the truth is that bad things will still happen.  Our world is a very dangerous place and it is becoming increasingly unstable.  The federal government could … Read more »

The Assassination of an American Teenager

With all the outcry over Trayvon Martin, I’m curious… where is the outcry for Abdulrahman al-Awlaki?

If you’re like any number of Americans, you probably just said “Who?” aloud.

As reported by David Kretzmann:

On October 14, 2011, Abdulrahman Al-awlaki was killed by U.S. airstrikes in Yemen. Al-awlaki was a 16 year old American citizen who was eating dinner with a group of his teenage friends when U.S. airstrikes took their lives. Al-awlaki, born in Denver, Colorado, was the son of Anwar al-Awlaki. Anwar al-Awlaki, of course, was the U.S. citizen suspected (but never prosecuted) of working with Al Qaeda; Awlaki was assassinated by the U.S. on September 30, 2011.

I briefly touched on the administration’s willingness to forgo due process and kill American citizens in the name of the “war on terror” in a previous article.

So while everybody is up in arms about Trayvon Martin being killed, almost nobody is mentioning Abdulrahman. I’m guessing 99% of you had never even heard of him. I’m betting the same percentage of you had no idea that this young man was, like his father, an American citizen, who was assassinated by his own government on foreign soil.

“But… but… His dad was a scary terrorist man!” Well, that may be. But as Mr. Kretzmann already noted, he was suspected but never charged or prosecuted.

Wrong Place at the Wrong Time; Where is the Justice?

I can’t help but laugh at this picture every time I see it. This guy is a classic example of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Ouch.

But this is just humorous (well, ok, it’s probably not very funny to the poor lad who now has to swallow to return his manliness to its original position). What happens when it’s not funny?

Take the recent Trayvon Martin situation. Spike Lee retweeted an address which was purported to be that of alleged shooter George Zimmerman. The only problem is, it was the wrong address.

So what happens when an angry mob shows up in front of your house?

That’s exactly what happened to an elderly couple, aged 70 and 72, who were the unfortunate occupants of the address that was being passed around.

Apparently, the woman’s son is named William George Zimmerman, and he briefly lived at that address in 1995. When William Zimmerman pleaded with the man who tweeted the address, the man responded, “Black power all day. No justice, no peace” along with an obscenity.

So, I ask, where is the justice for this couple? Where is their peace? They have had to temporarily relocate to a hotel out of fear for their safety.
