Can Police Make You Use Your Fingerprint to Unlock Your Phone? – The Atlantic

The Fifth Amendment, which protects people from incriminating themselves during legal proceedings, prevents the government from compelling someone to turn over a memorized PIN or passcode. But fingerprints, like other biometric indicators—DNA, handwriting samples, your likeness—have long been considered fair game, because they don’t reveal anything in your mind.

Virginia prosecutors: Police tasing was incompetent and negligent, but not criminal | MSNBC

AN EXAMPLE OF “HOW NOT TO POLICE”

The report repeatedly and sometimes harshly criticizes the officers’ conduct.

“Once Mr. Lambert had been placed in the patrol car, in handcuffs and leg shackles, he was no longer a threat,” the report found, but officers “unreasonably” continued tasing him.

Prosecutors on Tuesday will explain in a report their decision to not charge three officers in the 2013 repeated tasing of a Virginia man.

Klingaformation: Klingon permaculture; a phenomenology. | Darin Bauer – Academia.edu

Darin rocking some future thought over here from the relative safety of TNG archetypes. I remember working on urban farms and being distressed and in denial about the condition of the soil. Terraform the East Bay Todayenvirnoment_smog-300x200

Using my Star Trek Online meme as the main character, I have once again furthered the causality of all things Klingon in the name of the Glory of their Revolution[s]. My considerations on political science and activism have expanded in that outside

After the Khittomer accords Klingons began cultivating bio-mass from Khittomer to Terran, and other Federation worlds as well as our own. Khittomer is a harsh world with a primeval bio-mass, however it was at that time considered critical to create a multi-platform of eco-synthesis. As a result of that and other similar forms of eco-integration, Earth had a shorter “neutral-phase,” no means however the shortest, neither will that be true of Qo’Nos.

Klingons are known by the trails of blood behind their wake.

A Breif and Disorganized Rant on Security Culture for Insurrectionary Anarchists. | anarchistnews.org

Moreover, is it really more rhetorically expedient for us to wear our illegalist politics on our sleeves or would we be better off driving contradictions at democratic legitimacy? I’m curious, cuz maybe I’m getting soft in my old age, but it seems to me that engaging with liberal ideology, with the paradoxical expectations of a “democratic” government works better than just shouting “I’m a nihilist! I’m a nihilist! Look at me! Look at how little i care! Mwah-ha-ha-ha!” Right?
