Life in PRISON: DPR hunted, captured, convicted and sentenced to LIFE

Image
A federal judge sentenced Silk Road darknet mastermind Ross Ulbricht to life in prison Friday for founding and operating a criminal version of eBay that made buying illegal drugs almost as easy as clicking a computer mouse.

After considering the 31-year-old Texas native's apology and plea for leniency, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest ordered him to serve far more than the mandatory minimum 20 years faced for his February conviction on five criminal charges.

The punishment, two life terms and three lesser prison sentences, matched the maximum punishment called for under federal sentencing guidelines and recommended by a government probation report.

Saying the sprawling global drug operation "wasn't a game, and you knew that," Forrest also imposed a nearly $184 forfeiture order on the Ulbricht.

"What you did with Silk Road was terribly destructive to our social fabric," said the judge, who lectured Ulbricht that he was like any other drug dealer, even t…

Video released by WikiLeaks Happy Memorial day

The helicopter pilots spot a crowd gathering who are described as "possible AIF" (anti-Iraqi forces). The second helicopter, Crazyhorse 21, "conducts final gun run" to strafe unnamed targets that the intelligence report does not specify. By now two F-16 fighter-bombers are on station along with an unnamed drone that is filming the scene. Four Bradley armored vehicles full of US ground troops are at the ready nearby.



But there is no more firing from the Iraqis and the drone's video footage, which is being monitored by US controllers, shows people coming out of the mosque and dispersing. "No weapons were seen." US troops remain on the scene for another 50 minutes before returning to base.



It is not their practice to remove or identify bodies. If done at all it is usually left to Iraqis. In this case the war log on the incident ends with what are described as unconfirmed reports of casualties. An Iraqi colonel says 12 AIF are dead. A nam…

Memorial Day, what do you remember?

Image
By Christopher Rice

The first widely-publicized observance of a Memorial Day-type observance was in Charleston, South Carolina, on May 1, 1865. During the war, Union soldiers who were prisoners of war had been held at the Hampton Park Race Course in Charleston; at least 257 Union prisoners died there and were hastily buried in unmarked graves. Together with teachers and missionaries, black residents of Charleston organized a May Day ceremony in 1865, which was covered by the New York Tribune and other national papers. The freedmen cleaned up and landscaped the burial ground, building an enclosure and an arch labeled "Martyrs of the Race Course." Nearly 10,000 people, mostly freedmen, gathered on May 1 to commemorate the war dead. Involved were about 3,000 school children, newly enrolled in freedmen's schools, as well as mutual aid societies, Union troops, black ministers and white northern missionaries. Most brought flowers to lay on the burial field. Today the site is re…

Finally admit that the 'war on drugs' was lost. 'Just say no' was another joke. Education through the 'Dare' program failed. Putting people in jail fails. Rehab programs are money makers with a very low success rate. I am someone who went through the hell of addiction.



As someone who suffers from chronic pain and cannot afford a "pain clinic", I have developed a hatred for the AMA and big pharma. They release these horror stories about opiates, causing the government to tighten restrictions on their use. Any amount over a small amount, you've got to go to a "pain clinic". These clinics are very expensive. Has anyone else noticed the explosion in the numbers of these very lucrative "pain clinics" in the last few years. These periodic release about the horrors of opiates are only for the purpose of keeping these very lucrative businesses in business and being the only legal avenue…

Beat your court case: Criminal defenses

Image
By Christopher Rice


To convict you, the State will spare no expense. Here are some defenses, use everything you can to get free.

1.) Didn't Do It
Go with you did not commit the alleged crime in question. Wasn't me.

2.) The Presumption of Innocence

All people accused of crimes are presumed to be guilty, whether that comes by way of trial or plea. This presumption means that the defendant must convince the jury of his/her innocence, rather than the prosecution having to prove guilt. Juries typically believe LE over alleged criminals.

3.) Reasonable Doubt

The prosecutor and public defenders must convince the defendant that going to trial would be futile due to the evidence gathered, planted or manufactured against him/her and that accepting a plea bargain is in their best interest. This way the state avoids an expensive trial and the DA keeps his/her prosecution stats.

4.) The Alibi

An alibi defense consists of evidence that the defendant was somewhere other than the scene of the crime a…

Q & A (How to) Defeat such a powerful enemy

Q. Who's going to stand up to the psychopaths who've hijacked the U.S. government?

Who's going to stand up to the violent, mindless goon squads they now control?

They're currently in the process of invading and destabilizing every country they were unable to fully control from afar.

What happens when they've completed their murderous world-domination agenda? Who will be left to stand up to them?



A.They have all of the power, they control all communications and all resources. I've worked with activist from every group out there from Anarchist to the Tea Party and all activist have made three fatal mistakes.

The first is, we are constantly reacting to the government,  which has us constantly on the defense. We need to go on the offense.



Second flaw is buying into the lie that the Sheeple need to be woke up. Its just not so, everyone's fed up and  looking for alternatives. We only need to offer a better alternative.



Third we have…

Update: 2,500 juveniles detained in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay since 2001

When the U.S. ratified the international treaty on the rights of children in armed conflict in 2002, it committed to protecting children under 18 from military recruitment and deployment to war and guaranteeing basic protections to former child soldiers, including those in U.S. military custody.
 As of 2008, the most recent year for which public data is available, 2,500 juveniles had been detained in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay since 2001. Responding to an ACLU request for updated figures in February 2010, the Department of Defense stated that fewer than five juveniles remained in U.S. military custody in Iraq and Afghanistan at that time.

But we have insufficient information about measures the U.S. has taken to rehabilitate or reintegrate the children it has detained, or the remedies provided to children who suffered harm in U.S. custody. 



Indeed, although the U.S. maintains that, “in detaining juvenile combatants, the United States seeks to restore some hope…

Fear of Intimacy – The Wounded Heart of Codependency

By Robert Burney

Fear of Abandonment, Betrayal, and Rejection

Fear of intimacy is at the heart of codependency. We have a fear of intimacy because we have a fear of abandonment, betrayal, and rejection. We have a these fears because we were wounded in early childhood – we experienced feeling emotionally abandoned, rejected, and betrayed by our parents because they were wounded. They did not have healthy relationship with self – they were codependents who abandoned and betrayed themselves – and their behavior caused us to feel unworthy and unlovable.



“We exited the warm nurturing cocoon of our incubator into a cold, harsh world. A world run by Higher Powers (parents and any body else bigger than us – siblings, grandparents, hospital or orphanage personnel) who were wounded in their childhood. Gods who were not emotionally healthy, and did not know how to Love themselves. Our egos were traumatized – and adapted programming to try to protect us from the pain of emotional trauma that felt li…
