Police Steal $16,000 from Farmer to Finance a Larger Operation to Rob More People

Livingston, MT — Lorenzo Ayala was on his way back from being stood up by a woman he met online when he was pulled over and subsequently robbed by a Montana State Trooper.

During his drive to meet his online friend, Ayala, who is also a farmer, was also going to purchase parts for his broken tractor so he had his savings of $16,000 in his trunk.

On his way to California, Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Erick Fetterhoff pulled Ayala over on Interstate 90 near Livingston, according to court records.

Fetterhoff is trained as an expert to seek out substances that his bosses tell him to kidnap and cage people for possessing. He said in his police report that he smelled cologne and saw multiple suspicious items indicative of these substances.

Fetterhoff then deprived Ayala of his right to be secure in his own belongings and began to tear apart his vehicle in search of illegal drugs.

No drugs were found.

What was found, however, was $16,020 that Ayala had saved to purchase parts to fix his tractor. Despite the Highway Patrol not finding any illegal substances, and not charging Ayala with a crime, his money was ‘seized’ or stolen, depending on who you ask.

This money was stolen in June of 2013. It was then used to help finance an entire unit devoted to pulling people over and stealing their property. In the last 18 months alone, the patrol has spent more than $170,000 of stolen funds to build a larger operation to keep stealing more funds in a crazy cycle of robbery for growth.

The good news is, however, that their robbery scheme will soon be coming to an end, or at least it will be heavily diminished.

For years, the courts acted with the police and were able to rob people like Ayala without convicting them of a crime. But on July 1, all of that changes.

Montana became the fourth state to overhaul their “policing for profit” scam. At the beginning of next month, officers must store suspects’ assets until the owner is convicted of a crime involving that property.

“The police ought to have to prove something before they take your stuff away,” Chris Young, one of Ayala’s attorneys, said. “And now they do.”

While this is a small step forward in the fight to stop the fleecing of American citizens by law enforcement, it will likely lead to a slew of other problems. Police will likely be reluctant to bring their windfall operations to a halt, so they will likely take any means necessary to seek convictions; whether or not the person is actually guilty of a crime.

Road piracy in the US has reached epic proportions.

It has gotten so bad that the Canadian government has issued a public service announcement for its citizens warning them that American Road Pirates, aka police officers, may very well rob them upon entry into the US.

Since September 2001, there have been 62,000 incidents of road piracy; resulting in a booty of over $2.5 billion.

In the US, “298 departments and 210 task forces have seized the equivalent of 20 percent or more of their annual budgets since 2008” according to a report by the Post.

Some might try and say that this money and property is obviously “taken from criminals” in order to rationalize this theft on a massive scale. However, as is evident in the case of Mr. Ayala, the government does not have to charge you with a crime, let alone convict you, to take your property and after they steal your property the burden of proof is on you to get it back.

Only one sixth of the 62,000 cases of cash forfeitures to police in the last decade have been challenged in court due to the high cost of challenging the state; not to mention that since their money was stolen, even if they once had the funds to challenge the theft, they may not any longer.

The justice department’s asset forfeiture fund in 2011 was $1.8 billion.

In Philadelphia alone, more than $64 million in seized property has been taken in the last decade and 100% of it has gone into the pockets of cops, judges, and other bureaucrats with a hand in the treasure chest.

But these billions stolen from the citizens of this country by the ones who claim to keep them safe, are just an example of a few bad apples, right? It’s most assuredly not a systemic problem resulting from the glaring unaccountable nature of the state.

Higher Perspective | The Rundown Live

1. Life isn’t about being perfect.

Life isn’t even really about trying to be perfect at all. Life is more about happiness, enjoying yourself and the people in your company. Cut loose, be yourself, strive for the excellence you want, and don’t sweat the rest.

2. You have some control.

At any given moment, you can stand up and say “This isn’t how the story is going to end for me.” You can’t predict the future, but you can make changes that will lead you to an outcome that’s more desirable than where you’re headed right now.

3. You can think positively.

You simply can. There’s nothing stopping you from it. If you want to turn around a bad situation or two, simply think more positively about yourself and your life. It can leave you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle problems pragmatically.

4. You’re fine.

Seriously. You may know you have faults but there’s way more awesome stuff about you than otherwise.

5. We all make mistakes.

So get up, dust yourself off, and get back on the horse. Don’t worry, you’ll learn and grow from these mistakes and they’ll lead you to bigger victories in the future.

6. Be good to yourself.

Nothing is going to improve if you’re too hard on yourself. Treat yourself well. When you succeed, celebrate that! When you don’t, just remember that there will be more successes than failures.

7. Every problem has a solution.

So don’t stop looking! You’ll find the solutions to your problems if you never give up.

8. Don’t compare yourself to others.

We each get to define for ourselves what success is, so don’t let what other people are doing influence you. You just do you.

In the ‘Land of the Free,’ You Can Face 20 Years in Prison for Clearing Your Web Browser History

By TheRundownLive

Boston, MA — Khairullozhon Matanov, a former taxi driver, is scheduled to appear in US Federal Court next week to face sentencing on charges of obstruction of justice related to the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing.

Matanov did not participate in or have any prior knowledge of the bombings, according to U.S. authorities. However, those facts are irrelevant.

Matanov could be locked in a cage for 20 years because he cleared his browser history in the days following the attacks.

A Grand Jury indictment issued on May 29, 2014, states that Matanov “deleted a large amount of information from his Google Chrome Internet cache” following the bombing, including “references to the video of the suspected bombers [later identified as the Tsarnaevs],” “two of the photographs of the bombers released at approximately the same time,” and “a photograph of Officer Sean Collier, who had been allegedly killed by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.”

For those who may be unfamiliar, if you browse the web, you have a cache. A cache is a repository for stored data that is used to expedite the process of retrieving data. Caches are used to speed up a process so that data does not have to be recomputed or fetched from its original location and, therefore, saves time.

Because Matanov deleted his cache, he was charged with “Destruction, Alteration, and Falsification of Records, Documents, and a Tangible Object in a Federal Investigation” which could land him in a cell for 20 years.

The government has admitted and the indictment makes clear they have “no evidence that Matanov had foreknowledge or participated in the bombings.” Yet he’s been in jail this entire time.

Matanov is seemingly being prosecuted for just knowing the alleged bombers.

Because Matanov does not want to spend decades behind bars he pleaded guilty to all of the charges, while asserting his innocence the entire time.

“You’re afraid if you go to trial you could be found guilty of all four of these charges and the sentence might be longer than the 30 months?” the judge asked. “Is that it? That you think you are not a guilty person but given the circumstances you’d rather [not] go to trial?”

To which Matanov replied, “I signed a deal and I found guilt most fitting for my situation.”

The law used to ruin this man, who claims he’s innocent, dates back to 2002 and was enacted by Congress under Bush. It’s called the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

In a report last week for the Nation, Juliana DeVries explained the nature of such legislation.

“Prosecutors are able to apply the law broadly because they do not have to show that the person deleting evidence knew there was an investigation underway,” she wrote. “In other words, a person could theoretically be charged under Sarbanes-Oxley for deleting her dealer’s number from her phone even if she were unaware that the feds were getting a search warrant to find her marijuana. The application of the law to digital data has been particularly far-reaching because this type of information is so easy to delete.”

TechDirt’s Tim Cushing explains that under Sabanes-Oxley, “U.S. citizens are almost expected to hold onto everything, just in case… and if you’ve ‘destroyed’ any data prior to the examination of your electronic devices, you could face felony charges for performing simple computer maintenance.”

Electronic Frontier Foundation senior staff attorney Hanni Fakhoury agreed, telling The Nation that the U.S. government wants and believes it deserves access to all online data for policing purposes, according to CBC.

Fakhoury said that the government’s “underlying theory” is this:

“Don’t even think about deleting anything that may be harmful to you, because we may come after you at some point in the future for some unforeseen reason and we want to be able to have access to that data. And if we don’t have access to that data, we’re going to slap an obstruction charge that has as 20-year maximum on you.”

Energy Revolution: New Technology Uses Living Plants to Power Streetlights & Charge Cell Phones

By TheRundownLive

Jay Syrmopoulos | FreeThoughtProject

Hembrug, Netherlands — In what could be an initial step in a global energy revolution, Dutch company Plant-E, in an ambitious energy project labeled “Starry Sky,” this month illuminated 300 LED lights using a new process that utilizes the energy of living plants.

“Starry Sky” and another similar project, “Plant-E,” are the initial two commercial undertakings by the company, utilizing the new technology. The emerging technology is thus far able to power lighting, Wi-Fi hotspots, mobile chargers and rooftop electricity modules, according to Yes Magazine.

But Marjolein Helder, co-founder and CEO of Plant-E, foresees a technological revolution on the horizon. While the idea of creating a new clean energy option using living plants is amazing, the reality of being able to generate power to some of the most poverty-stricken regions on the globe may be even more critical.

Plant-E has plans to incorporate the use of this technology in existing wetlands and rice paddies to begin larger scale power generation. The current projects, which lit up the Netherlands this past month, used a native aquatic plant to produce the energy.

According to a report by Yes Magazine:

The process involves plants growing in modules—two-square-foot plastic containers connected to other modules—where they undergo the process of photosynthesis and convert sunlight, air, and water into sugars. The plants use some of the sugars to grow, but they also discharge a lot of it back into the soil as waste. As the waste breaks down, it releases protons and electrons. Plant-e conducts electricity by placing electrodes into the soil.

cart plant energy 1

The process used by Plant-E is called a “sediment microbial fuel cell,” according to Ramaraja Ramasamy, an adjunct professor at the University of Georgia College of Engineering. Ramasamy cautions that while the technology is in its infancy it will not be able to compete against current alternative energy sources, such as wind turbines or solar panels.

“It’s not making enough energy to have any reliable commercial product. That doesn’t mean that it will not be. We are too early in the research,” Ramasamy reasoned. “If I come to you and say, ‘Do you want to power that 100-watt bulb?’ You probably need an acre of land and dirt to get the electricity from. Is that feasible? No.”

Current applications of the technology would be better suited to the developing world, in which energy needs are still relatively low, but the new process holds great potential.

According to Helder, a one-square-meter garden should be able to produce 28 kilowatt-hours per year. The average U.S. home consumed 10,837 kilowatt-hours in 2012, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Using these numbers, it would take approximately 4,000 square feet of plant/yard to produce enough energy to power the average American home.

Even at the massive amounts of energy used by the average U.S. household, a large yard is all it would take to get off the grid completely using this innovative technology.

The amount of energy derived from the plants also varied based upon climate, as the technology stops working when the ground freezes. For a couple of weeks in the winter Plant-E’s energy installations stop producing due to the extreme cold. Climate will potentially dictate where this product ultimately is used.

Plant-E’s next step is to begin electricity generation using existing wetlands. Engineers will be inserting a tube horizontally below the surface of a wetland, peat bog, mangrove, rice paddy, or river delta, utilizing the same process as the modular system.

“Modular systems are interesting, but you can only scale up to a certain size because it’s pretty labor- and material-intensive,” Helder said.

The company has been working on a tubular system prototype but has run into funding difficulties.

“A tubular system can just be rolled out through the field and it just works because the plants are already there. So for the longer term, for the really large scale, that’s much more interesting,” Helder said.

Plant-E hopes to begin field tests soon on the modular system, with a commercial product hopefully ready within a few years.

Are you ready for an energy revolution?

Editor of Prestigious Medical Journal Says “Science has Taken a Turn into Darkness”

By The Rundown Live

nanotech-in-food-usda

Josh Paniagua | ANTIMEDIA

The editor of the New England Journal of Medicine has an ominous warning to the world about the state of the science establishment.

In the modern era of information, it isn’t necessarily uncommon to stumble across average folks—who lack a formal education in any scientific field—discussing scientific data. Thanks to the rapid evolution of the internet, acquiring a fundamental understanding of scientific theories is as simple as a few clicks on a keyboard and a couple of hours of reading.

However, there is much more to the science community than…well…science. The scientific method itself may be unquestionable. Still, the scientists, organizations, and interpretation of data are very much questionable.

The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet are two of the most esteemed and distinguished medical journals in the world. Both have published peer-reviewed data for around 200 years. Despite this, according to the editors of these outlets, fame and influence don’t inherently imply integrity.

Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet, recently wrote:

Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices. The apparent endemicity [i.e. pervasiveness within the scientific culture] of bad research behaviour is alarming. In their quest for telling a compelling story, scientists too often sculpt data to fit their preferred theory of the world. Or they retrofit hypotheses to fit their data. Journal editors deserve their fair share of criticism too. We aid and abet the worst behaviours. Our acquiescence to the impact factor fuels an unhealthy competition to win a place in a select few journals. Our love of “significance” pollutes the literature with many a statistical fairy-tale. We reject important confirmations. Journals are not the only miscreants. Universities are in a perpetual struggle for money and talent, endpoints that foster reductive metrics, such as high-impact publication. National assessment procedures, such as the Research Excellence Framework, incentivise bad practices. And individual scientists, including their most senior leaders, do little to alter a research culture that occasionally veers close to misconduct.

And there we have it. The editor of a prestigious medical journal that has published peer-reviewed data since 1823 has openly admitted that the corrupt have indeed infiltrated the science community and its media outlets. Surely, this isn’t news to many, yet millions of readers have been and will continue to be deceived by the label of “peer-reviewed” in spite of this blatant confession.

What one can find almost laughable is that this isn’t the first time an editor of a prestigious medical journal has come forward and declared the science community and its publications to be manipulated and corrupt. In 2009, Dr. Marcia Angell of the New England Journal of Medicine wrote:

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

What does this information tell us? The most obvious implication is simply that we are being lied to by the very people we trust to explore the world around us and help us better understand it. Furthermore, it also poses a crucial question: how deep do the roots of corruption reach in the field of information? How much of what we think we know has actually been the result of manipulated data? Can it be fixed? Richard Horton, editor of the medical journal Lancet, has this to say:

Part of the problem is that no-one is incentivised to be right. Instead, scientists are incentivised to be productive and innovative. Would a Hippocratic Oath for science help? Certainly don’t add more layers of research red tape. Instead of changing incentives, perhaps one could remove incentives altogether. Or insist on replicability statements in grant applications and research papers. Or emphasise collaboration, not competition. Or insist on preregistration of protocols. Or reward better pre and post publication peer review. Or improve research training and mentorship. Or implement the recommendations from our Series on increasing research value, published last year. One of the most convincing proposals came from outside the biomedical community. Tony Weidberg is a Professor of Particle Physics at Oxford. Following several high-profile errors, the particle physics community now invests great effort into intensive checking and rechecking of data prior to publication. By fi ltering results through independent working groups, physicists are encouraged to criticise. Good criticism is rewarded. The goal is a reliable result, and the incentives for scientists are aligned around this goal.”

Georgia Woman Charged with Murder for Taking ‘Abortion Pill’ She Purchased Online

Albany, GA — In a case that is sure to infuriate individuals on all sides of the abortion spectrum, a Georgia woman is facing murder charges for her self-induced abortion.

Kenlissa Jones, 23, was charged with malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug, after taking a pill to induce an abortion.

According to officials, Jones ordered the ‘abortion pill’ from an online pharmacy in Canada. The drug was called Cytotec which is an anti-ulcer medication, with known off-label indications such as medication abortion, medical management of miscarriage, induction of labor, cervical ripening before surgical procedures, and the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage.

In an interview with WALB, Jones’ brother, Rico Riggins explained that they didn’t even know she was pregnant.

“At that point we didn’t even know she was pregnant,” said her brother. “And so my first real reaction was like, why she keeping it away from us.”

“Once she took those pills, from the way I’m understanding it, she was in a world of hurt for a while,” Riggins said.

On Saturday night, just after 8:00 pm, Jones went into labor, and a neighbor rushed her to the hospital. The 5-month old fetus would be delivered in the car on the way. Once they arrived at the hospital, the premature boy lived for nearly 30 minutes.

“We’re coping the best we can. We’re hoping we get a lot of prayers,” said Riggins. “I don’t want anyone to be mad or upset with my family. At the end of the day, they are doing the best we can.”

After Jones had explained to doctors what she did, she was placed in the Dougherty County jail and is currently being held without bond. To add to this tragic series of events, Jones has a one-year-old son, who is now without his mother.

This incident is terribly unfortunate and tragic, but does Jones deserve to go to jail and be held without bond?

According to Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards, this case will likely go before a grand jury, because Georgia and federal laws will need to be explored.

Georgia law states that no abortions are authorized after the first trimester unless it is performed in a licensed hospital, in a licensed ambulatory surgical center, or in a health facility licensed as an abortion facility by the Department of Community Health.

Whether or not abortion should be legal is not the question in regards to this incident, as it is. However, because Jones chose to conduct this procedure by herself, she is now being persecuted. Also, it is entirely possible that Jones did not know that she was outside of the first trimester.

Researchers Unveil Technology Allowing a Plane to “Heal Itself” in Mid-Flight

Now, the leader of this research team says self-healing technology should hit consumer markets in the “very near future.”

In the United Kingdom, scientists are developing technology to equip machines with the power to heal themselves. British scientists are due to present self-healing aircraft wings to a Royal Society meeting in London this week.

A team of scientists from the University of Bristol has quietly developed the technology over the last few years. Now, the leader of this team says self-healing technology should hit consumer markets in the “very near future.” Examples cited included self-healing nail polish and self-repairing cracked phone screens.

The Independent described the technology:

“The team’s ingenious solution started ‘on the back of an envelope’ but has since developed into useable technology. It involves adding tiny, hollow ‘microspheres’ to the carbon material – so small that they look like a powder to the human eye – which break on impact, releasing a liquid healing agent. The agent seeps into the cracks left by the damage before coming into contact with a catalyst, triggering a rapid chemical reaction which causes it to harden.”

“We took inspiration from the human body,” said head of the team, Professor Wass. “We’ve not evolved to withstand any damage – if we were like that we’d have a skin as thick as a rhinoceros – but if we do get damaged, we bleed, and it scabs and heals. We just put that same sort of function into a synthetic material: let’s have something that can heal itself.”

Tests have determined that the hardened material is just as stable as the original, so planes will be able to heal themselves in mid-flight and be as functional as they were before being damaged.

It seems like this technology is being developed relatively quickly and is yet another technological advancement that will come to fruition in the next five years. It has the potential to completely change the world we live in.

Consumers will undoubtedly benefit from prolonged utility of things like cell phones and cars thanks to self-healing tech. Air travel will become ever safer. However, this new technology also raises questions regarding the rapid growth of autonomous machinery, computers and drones. Do we really want armed, autonomous drones flying around with the ability to repair themselves? What if the artificially intelligent machines decided to stop listening to us one day, as Tesla CEO Elon Musk has warned about? That’s a question that should be answered before these “what ifs” become reality.
