Stupid Cop Tricks: Pesky Bill Of Rights

Say Uncle has a post regarding some truly moronic behavior by police officers who forced their way into a home without a warrant and got their butts kicked for it.

Outcome for defender of Hearth and Home; eight days served for taking a cops taser away from him and acquittal on all other charges. My guess is a request to have his rights restored will be honored.

Homeowner had 'a right to resist'

Judge acquits John Coffin on 5 felony charges; Coffin gets time served on 6th.

By TODD RUGER
todd.ruger@heraldtribune.com
SARASOTA -- John Coffin won't spend any more time in jail for beating up two sheriff's deputies inside his house, striking one in the head with a Taser gun he took from the other.

Circuit Judge Rick De Furia said at Coffin's trial Tuesday that he doesn't condone the violence against the deputies.

But Coffin, 56, had a right to defend his family and property because the deputies had no right to be in Coffin's house in the first place, De Furia said.

"Law enforcement was responsible for the chain of events here," De Furia said. "I think in situations like this, officers become so frustrated they go beyond what the law allows them to do."

The fight started when Coffin heard his wife screaming in pain, went into the garage and saw two deputies arresting her on the floor.

The deputies were trying to serve Coffin with civil papers that had been given five days earlier. They had entered the garage even though they did not have a search warrant or arrest warrant.

And they arrested Coffin's wife, Cynthia, 50, on obstruction charges even though she had no obligation to follow their orders to bring her husband outside.

"The most critical is the fact the officers broke the law by stopping the garage door from going down," and then entering the garage, De Furia said.

A jury was picked for the trial Monday. But the judge granted a motion by Coffin's attorneys, Derek Byrd and Brett McIntosh, and acquitted John Coffin on five of six felony charges Tuesday morning.

Coffin pleaded no contest to the remaining charge of taking a Taser gun from one of the deputies during the fight.

Before handing down the sentence, De Furia asked how long Coffin spent in jail after his initial arrest.

"You spent eight days in the Sarasota County jail," De Furia said. "That's your sentence. No probation."

Relatives applauded, and Coffin walked out of the courthouse with only a $358 bill for court costs. The sentence surprised even defense attorneys, who had suggested De Furia sentence Coffin to probation.

Prosecutors had asked for more than a year of prison time because of "the totality of the case" and the injuries to deputies James Lutz and Stacy Ferris, whose name is now Stacy Brandau.

The two deputies testified about their injuries Tuesday -- three blows to the head with the butt of the Taser gun knocked Lutz unconscious.

"I just ask that he doesn't get away with this," Brandau told the judge.

Assistant State Attorney Jeff Young told the judge the case "could have been over in five seconds" if the Coffins "had simply come out and cooperated."

"That is a man who took it upon himself to beat up two police officers," Young said.

De Furia said that while he believed the deputies' mistakes were not intentional, the Coffins had every right to lock doors, try to close their garage door and not cooperate.

"What took place in the house was unfortunate," De Furia said, "but Mr. Coffin ... had a right to resist."

Why Giuliani Will Be Out OfThe Running

I will be surprised if Rudy Giuliani makes it through the Republican primaries.

While I do not doubt he was an outstanding executive for an East coast Liberal city, those center and to the right in the Republican party will take great issue with his stances, most notably on Gun Control.

Alphecca has the case down cold:

In 1993, Giuliani met with then-President Clinton to discuss national gun registration and supported the Brady bill, which had recently passed, but Rudy argued that it didn’t go far enough. Clinton, largely crediting Giuliani for the idea, enthusiastically sent Atty. Gen. Janet Reno off to develop a gun-licensing and registration system.

In May 1994, as the battle over the ban on certain semi-automatic firearms reached its height, Giuliani threw his support behind the ban. On the eve of the final vote, he noted that so-called assault weapons “have no legitimate purpose.” When the ban passed, Giuliani commented that “this is an important step toward curtailing the indiscriminate proliferation of guns across the nation.”

Results Of People's Revolution

Not content to wreck the economy and starve his own people, Mad Bob Mugabe, Marxist dictator for life in Zimbabwe, has taken to stealing the corpses of democracy activists killed by his state security apparatus.

Here is what the people of Zimbabwe bought themselves with their Communist backed "People's Revolution".

Rate of Inflation: 1,740%.
Unemployment: 80%.
HIV infection rate: 33%.
Life expectancy: 34.
Motto: "Unity, Freedom, Work."
National anthem: Kalibusiswe Ilizwe leZimbabwe “Blessed be the land of Zimbabwe”
Yes, the previous regime in Zimbabwe, a British colonial hold over with sufferage based upon race (e.g. white colonial descendants can vote and Africans cannot) was a despicable system. It had to go. The world was right not back the white only government in Zimbabwe (formerly known as Rhodesia) in its fight against Chinese and Soviet sponsored communist guerrilas.

Unfortunately the Marxist regime voted in during elections in 1980 led by Robert Mugabe who still holds power today, did what communist regimes do best; kill their own people.

Here's to hoping that the peaceful Movement for Democratic Change, the opposition in Zimbabwe, are successful soon in deposing Mugabe and save as many of the people from a slow death of starvation in their gulag state.

Storm Brewing On The Left's Horizon

The recent court decision eliminating the D.C. Gun Ban which had stood for 31 years marks the beginning of a libertarian storm.

While some Democratic Party voters may style themselves as pro 2nd Amendment "progressives" the overwhelming majoirty are of the left's constituency are the protest-western-cultural-heritage-in-the-name-of St. Marx-and-St. Lenin crowd. These are the same useful idiots that hailed the Communist Party USA or march with ANSWER or simply those that hear calls for "social justice" and the end of "economic oppresion" without taking into context the results of previous attempts to implement their ideals. The very same clowns that were financed by the USSR during the Cold War protesting anything used by the west to defend itself.

This is the crowd that will drive the Democratic party hard to the left. With the repeated calls for ending any Western resistance to tyranny the hard left even extends their call to cease resistance to American cities in the form of Gun Control.

What prevents a tyrant and their supporters from implementing "social justice" programs and purging their enemies? The 2nd Amendment of the United States of America's Constitution.

Recently affirmation has come from a U.S. District Court that upholds the 2nd Amendment as an individual right rather than a collective right held by the state. While anyone who has read the 2nd Amendment and can diagram a sentence can tell you this, the hard left in the U.S.A. has been working diligently for seventy years to eliminate that right. To erase it from memory. To pretend it away and convince the gullible that it was really all about the National Guard which didn't exist until the twentieth century.

This is one of the reasons why I believe those in the center and right wing of U.S. politics have received a shot in the arm from this ruling. The pro 2nd Amendment progressive element will not stand idly by as the hard left, currently the driving force in Democratic politics, moves to disarm them, the better to force down the throats of America their pogroms...err programs. And I believe move they shall, the Democrats are already rushing to put into a place another "Assault Weapon" Ban. This after even President Clinton acknowledged that the original Assault Weapon Ban was no more than a feel good measure. Much as the supporters of the Assault Weapon Ban of 1994 were defeated in a bloodbath in the next election cycle, I feel renewed attempts at gun control, especially in an era we live in where we have seen terror attacks on our own soil and the horrors of atrocities like Beslan, will have the same results.

The resurgence of "Reagan Democrats" is what I believe will be the result.

Hopefully an inspiring libertarian style leader will emerge to capitalize upon this trend.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I hope you all enjoy your St. Patrick's Day.

Enjoy the beverages of your choice, whether that be Harp, Guiness, Bushmill's, Jameson or the proverbial Irish Coffee, safely.





Come home to the sweet Irish lass that love you and share your luck with them.

MiZZouRah for Cubanos!

My alma mater is hosting a festival celebrating the cultural heritage of the freedom loving Americans of Cuban extraction.

I want all my home state folk to enjoy this festival and celebrate this freedom loving people's joi de vivre.

My only other wish is they come to know of the struggle of those left behind in the communist dictatorship of Cuba and their struggle under the lash of totalitarianism.

Cuba Libre and Go MiZZouRah!

Smackdown

Potential Presidential candidate Fred Thompson lays the smackdown on the peacenik, socialist, CheTard left with this gem:

At what point is it okay to fight dictators like Saddam or the al Qaeda terrorists who want to take his place?


It turns out that the answer, according to Gandhi, is NEVER. During World War II, Gandhi penned an open letter to the British people, urging them to surrender to the Nazis. Later, when the extent of the holocaust was known, he criticized Jews who had tried to escape or fight for their lives as they did in Warsaw and Treblinka. “The Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife,” he said. “They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.” “Collective suicide,” he told his biographer, “would have been heroism.”

The so-called peace movement certainly has the right to make Gandhi’s way their way, but their efforts to make collective suicide American foreign policy just won’t cut it in this country. When American’s think of heroism, we think of the young American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, risking their lives to prevent another Adolph Hitler or Saddam Hussein.

Gandhi probably wouldn't approve, but I can live with that.

Stupid Cop Tricks: Dutch Edition

Apparently our police are not the only ones with the finely honed ability to shoot the innocent, whether by design or through incompetence.

This from the Netherlands; A man who stopped street thugs from harassing a pregnant woman, going so far as to disarm a knife wielding thuggee, was shot when police showed up on the scene.

Ondiep, a working class neighbourhood in the Dutch town of Utrecht, is in turmoil. After the death last Sunday of Rinie Mulder, a 54-year old indigenous Dutchman who was shot by a police officer, non-immigrant citizens went on a rampage, burning cars, looting shops and arsoning a community centre in “inverted Paris style riots.” According to our sources the police officer who killed Mulder is a woman of Moroccan origin.

The Ondiep residents have been complaining for months about harassment and intimidation by
immigrant youths of Moroccan origin. The Dutch mainstream media do not go into much detail about what is going on. Most of them do not mention the ethnicity of the victim and the police officer, though the riots clearly have an ethnic nature.

Apparently Mulder intervened when Muslim youths harassed a pregnant native Dutch woman. He was able to grab the knife of one of the youths. When the police arrived Mulder was shot because he had raised the knife. Witnesses say Mulder was indicating to the police that he had called for them.

Apparently after weeks of the indigenous dutch complaining about immigrant street thugs harassing people, the police showed up and shot the indigenous man rather than taking the three attackers into custody.

For this swift and utterly illogical reaction the Dutch police earned riots in the streets, this time by the indigenous Dutch mainstream rather than the socialist-CheTard/immigrant community.

Of course this all would have been solved had the Dutch the right to arm themselves. After applying a 125 grains of crime prevention.











My message to the Dutch:

Arm yourselves, your government, especially the police are incapable and more importantly unwilling to protect you. They believe that with their not enforcing the law they are maintaining the peace. This is not true as seen in the United States of America in the 1960's and 1970's as crime rates soared. Once we were hard on criminals again the crime rate dropped. Of course it might also have to do with good citizens being fed up with crime and arming themselves. Smart criminals move to other areas and the dumb criminals join Darwin's Queue.

Hippie's Perceptive Power

All of the protesting of the bugaboos of the left in the last six years has reminded me of an incident from my youth.

I was once one of the few conservative voices on a University campus.

During my freshman year in philosophy class during its post discussion wind down several students proclaimed proudly their intent to go protest a nuclear reactor being built about seventy miles away. They spoke of their commitment to stopping this imminent disaster to the ecology and how they hated capitalist society.

After sickening of the stupidity I mentioned if they were serious about protesting a nuclear reactor they could do so within walking distance from the classroom. Stunned faces turned my way and I explained the location.

Next of course came the conspiracy theories and how the military industrial complex should not hide from academia the projects used to slate their blood lust.

I calmly crushed their ranting with this, "It's not hidden from you. The area it's in is called Reactor Field for a reason."

The Hot Gates

I went and saw the latest portrayal of the struggle between overwhelming force martialed by totalitarian governments against the few who desire to be free.

300 is a must see movie.

This ancient Greek tale of men making their last stand against overwhelming force to make a point, drives to the very heart of the struggle between the West and East.

Defiance to despots, low regard for tyrants and a promise of opposition to the last breath is the example set.

Conservative Dream Ticket

It is amazing how people are already getting worked up about who they want to elect President in 2008.

Me personally I see this as the beginning of a long race. This is not a sprint but a marathon. There will be plenty of time for early front runners to have Carnal Knowledge of the Proverbial Canine prior to the primaries let alone election day itself.

But just to get this off my chest I have a dream ticket of my own:


Fred Thompson and J.C. Watts.

Victory For The Right Of Self Defense

Self defense, the ability to preserve the one's own life and that of their family is recognized as one of our inalienable, God given rights.

Our Founding Fathers acknowledged this right in the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America.

While the leftists have fought tooth and nail to diminish the importance of this right, even so far as to misinterpret the wording of the 2nd Amendment despite the context being available in the Federalist Papers, an affirmation by a court of this individual right was proclaimed today.

The Washington D.C. gun ban stood since 1976. Only now, more than thirty years later, has this vile infringement upon the right to self defense been stricken down. How many lives were lost due to the inability of citizens to protect themselves and their families?

For a scholarly review of the opinions of the court which struck down the handgun ban in the District of Columbia see the Volokh Conspiracy.

Here are all related posts at Volokh Conspiracy.

Here's the money quote:

In determining whether the Second Amendment’s guarantee is an individual one, or some sort of collective right, the most important word is the one the drafters chose to describe the holders of the right — “the people.” That term is found in the First, Second, Fourth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments. It has never been doubted that these provisions were designed to protect the interests of individuals against government intrusion, interference, or usurpation. We also note that the Tenth Amendment — “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people” — indicates that the authors of the Bill of Rights were perfectly capable of distinguishing between “the people,” on the one hand, and “the states,” on the other. The natural reading of “the right of the people” in the Second Amendment would accord with usage elsewhere in the Bill of Rights.

The District’s argument, on the other hand, asks us to read “the people” to mean some subset of individuals such as “the organized militia” or “the people who are engaged in militia service,” or perhaps not any individuals at all — e.g., “the states.” These strained interpretations of “the people” simply cannot be squared with the uniform construction of our other Bill of Rights provisions....

The District points to the singular nature of the Second Amendment’s preamble as an indication that the operative clause must be restricted or conditioned in some way by the prefatory language. However, the structure of the Second Amendment turns out to be not so unusual when we examine state constitutional provisions guaranteeing rights or restricting governmental power. It was quite common for prefatory language to state a principle of good government that was narrower than the operative language used to achieve it.

We think the Second Amendment was similarly structured. The prefatory language announcing the desirability of a well-regulated militia — even bearing in mind the breadth of the concept of a militia [which the court had earlier concluded “was a large segment of the population” rather than just a government-selected National Guard-like subgroup -EV] — is narrower than the guarantee of an individual right to keep and bear arms. The Amendment does not protect “the right of militiamen to keep and bear arms,” but rather “the right of the people.” The operative clause, properly read, protects the ownership and use of weaponry beyond that needed to preserve the state militias....

[I]f the competent drafters of the Second Amendment had meant the right to be limited to the protection of state militias, it is hard to imagine that they would have chosen the language they did. We therefore take it as an expression of the drafters’ view that the people possessed a natural right to keep and bear arms, and that the preservation of the militia was the right’s most salient political benefit — and thus the most appropriate to express in a political document.

Embrace Your Inner Redneck

Here is a post from the Cigar Intel Agency on what happens when you face those that embrace their inner Redneck.

God Almighty help someone who might interfere with the waitress delivering the next round of beer.

The Flip Side Of CheTard Mania

No self respecting commie leftist wannabe would be the same without their CheTard t-shirt.

This and the flip side of the same coin is examined by the Cuban-American Pundits.

mr. guevara's image on the shirts of ignorant college students world round has little to do with the historical events of mr. guevara's life, and is more the recreation of an icon representing the idealized "revolutionary struggle" against corruption in power. Scarface's image, on most inner-city youth, is an image of this corruption in search of power. If mr. guevara is the fictional image of struggle, then Scarface's Tony Montana has become the fictional image of guevara's opponent.

Image perpetuates myth and myth distorts the truth. As every hero needs a villian, this heroic image of mr. guevara (as understood here in the US) has one in the villianous image Scarface. And though I am sure that there are many who would side with Scarface simply to spit on the image of mr. guevara, I have to warn that this would be a grave error. Tony Montana's self-destructive character is in the end this negative, and erroneous, image of the Cuban exile community, to promote his image would subsequently justify the erroneously positive image of mr. guevera.
Emphasis added.

Enemies Foreign And Domestic

Traitor.

1.a person who betrays another, a cause, or any trust.
2.a person who commits treason by betraying his or her country.


That is the only word for someone who provides information on operations and corresponds with an enemy.

Abujihaad, a former enlisted man, exchanged e-mails with Ahmad while on active duty on the USS Benfold, a guided-missile destroyer, in 2000 and 2001, according to an affidavit released Wednesday. He allegedly purchased videos promoting violent jihad, or holy war.

In those e-mails, Abujihaad discussed naval military briefings and praised those who attacked the
USS Cole in 2000, according to the affidavit by
FBI Agent David Dillon.

The documents retrieved from Ahmad show drawings of Navy battle groups and discuss upcoming missions. They also say the battle group could be attacked using small weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades.
An enlisted man in the U.S. Navy provided this type of information to terrorists while on active duty.

He should have recalled the Oath he took upon volunteering in the United States Navy
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Why Purchase A Glock 21?

Here is a post demonstrating why I am nearly decided on purchasing a Glock 21.
Just a .22 pistol 30' away. I didnt expect it to do any damage, if we hit where we were aiming. Hit it 10 times before I lost my nerve and didnt want to risk hitting the frame. One hit the extractor, but didnt hurt anything




Shudder at the abuse and wonder at the reliability.

Follies Of The Sea

Brickmuppet has an outstanding post on the lack of shipbuilding and patrol resources faced by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard's patrol boats are getting long in the tooth and are desperately in need of a replacement.


The immediate problems go back to the '80s. The Coast Guard had large numbers of 82' and 95' patrol boats. All were slow but useful. The 95 foot boats had been designed in WW2 and produced over several years in different batches, their hulls were quite worn out, the 82'Point class had been built in the '60s they were cramped but useful vessels though a large number had been given to Viet Nam to assist that nation in its attempt to stave off the evil that ultimately consumed it.

As a stop-gap, the Island class patrol boats were ordered in small numbers in fits and starts in the early to mid 80's. Congress was unwilling to fund the CG and they were collateral items in drug war legislation with some actually being bought for the CG by the Navy!

His excellent article provides the history and shortsightedness of our government in funding the appropriate ship building.

Sig 556 And Alternatives For The Cheap Or Impatient


The Sig 556 has caused a flurry of excitement and impatience in the firearm aficionado community.

SigArms, a company whose products are considered Cadillacs of the firearms industry (finely made examples of affluence from my youth when Cadillac's name had that cache), has not been able to meet demand with their production. Of course high demand and low supply keeps prices up and helps maintain the desirability for those who want that something different in their safe or to sport at the range. Here are two examples from Gunbroker where a Sig 556 which went for $1675 and$1525 (perhaps more). This from a weapon with MSRP of $1299.

Much like the trophy bride the Sig 556 has features which are greatly admired if for different reasons; the main functional attraction for the Sig 556 is the acknowledged superiority of the reliability of a gas piston upper which prevents the gas and propellant remnants from hitting the chamber and bolt. This decreases cleaning demands, increasing range time fun all while you may take advantage of inexpensive and ubiquitous AR-15 magazines. This makes the Sig 556 all the more alluring.

For those who want the reliability of a Sig 556 without the premium price and can live without the cache the name brings to your gun safe there are other options. DSA markets Phoenix based POF-USA's Gas Trap Carbine uppers for $1100 to $1400 dollars. This could be added to the lower of your choice or as a replacement for the upper on your current AR clone.


Also available are the Leitner-Wise gas piston uppers, while as pricey as a whole Sig 556 they are well reviewed. On Leitner-Wise's site is a wonderful visual aid on the difference between gas piston upper function and that of direct gas impingement. Leitner-Wise also has a video on the why,how and function of their products.

Bushmaster is producing a gas piston upper for the AR series as low as $1000.

Rumor has it that Colt is developing their own gas piston upper in the face of competition from companies such as Heckler-Koch (HK 416) and Fabrique National (SCAR) both of which are available in 5.56x45mm (.223)and 7.62x51mm (.308).



Last and least as far as the private firearms owning community is concerned due to their policy of not selling their rifles to the benighted masses is HK's 416. While this weapon received great reviews from the Special Operations community, I predict they will be stuck in the position of the AR series in the early 1960's, unwanted by the brass despite being potentially less expensive and more reliable than current weapons until someone forces it or a weapon similar to it down the bureaucracy's throat.

For first hand impressions of a POF-USA gas piston upper in action keep an eye on Cowboy Blob's Saloon.

I personally will be holding out on the purchase of an AR series weapon until the gas piston uppers come closer to the price point of the run of the mill AR or,more likely, the ever increasing price of .308 and 7.62x39mm ammunition forces me to adopt a different weapon for range time fun.
