When agents searched the home, they found nothing directly linking the residents to the arrest of Craig Anthony Gelber, the target of the search, according to MMCTF Commander Bob Nishiyama. According to resident Anna White, Tonka's owner, the police shot her pet while it was in a fenced area on her front porch. "We found the shell casing outside by the fence area. Tonka then ran into our house, got onto my bed and died." White described her bedroom following the search, claiming Tonka's body had been dumped from the bed onto the floor and items from her room dropped onto the body and into the dog's blood. "They destroyed our house and found nothing," says White. [Sue the sociopaths.]

Civil contempt confinement policies should be reformed

Civil contempt confinement policies should be reformed By Jayne Ressler 29 Jul 2010 Richard Fine, a 70-year-old Tarzana attorney, has been imprisoned, reportedly in solitary confinement, without trial since March 4, 2009. His "crime"? Contempt of court, based on alleged "moral turpitude." He faces imprisonment indefinitely, unless he complies with the order of Judge David Yaffe, the Los Angeles County Superior Court judge responsible for his confinement. Why the harsh treatment of Fine? Could it be in response to Fine's investigation of court cases that involved prosecution against Los Angeles County that were inexplicably dismissed? Over a period of time, Fine alleged that Los Angeles County was bribing judges, under the guise of generous "supplemental benefits" payments, in exchange for rulings in the county's favor.

Ex-Pakistan spy chief: FBI had 'no solid evidence' bin Laden involved in 9/11 attacks --Gul: Afghanistan war 'lost cause' 06 Aug 2010 The U.S.-led war in Afghanistan is a "lost cause," said a former Pakistani intelligence chief, and the United States needs to negotiate peace with Taliban leader Mullah Omar... The attacks of September 11 were a pretext to a war already under consideration, Gul said... The 2001 terrorist attacks helped win the public support for the neocon plans, he said. There was no legitimate reason for the United States to attack Afghanistan, Gul said, because the FBI had no solid evidence that Osama bin Laden was involved in the attacks on New York and Washington.

F.B.I., Challenging Use of Seal, Gets Back a Primer on the Law

F.B.I., Challenging Use of Seal, Gets Back a Primer on the Law 02 Aug 2010 The Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken on... its latest adversary: Wikipedia. The bureau wrote a letter in July to the Wikimedia Foundation, the parent organization of Wikipedia, demanding that it take down an image of the F.B.I. seal accompanying an article on the bureau, and threatened litigation:"Failure to comply may result in further legal action. We appreciate your timely attention to this matter." The problem, those at Wikipedia say, is that the law cited in the F.B.I.’s letter is largely about keeping people from flashing fake badges or profiting from the use of the seal, and not about posting images on noncommercial Web sites.
