Marine Sgt. Lawrence Hutchins was a squad leader deployed to Hamdania, Iraq in 2006. The Marine Corps has accused him and his squad of killing a retired Iraqi policeman in a case of “mistaken identity.” Hutchins was originally tried by a military court martial along with 6 of his fellow Marines and a Navy corpsman. They were all found guilty and sentenced to less than 18 months, except for Hutchins, who received a sentence of 11 years. Higher military courts later overturned his conviction twice due to serious violations during the investigation. Read more…
Despite the media’s comparison to the Trayvon Martin shooting, the shooting of 68 year old Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr. is a puzzling story that is hard to justify. Mr. Chamberlain wasn’t a truant, troubled teen, or anything other than a well respected, upstanding American citizen. He was a U.S. Marine veteran and retired correctional officer. Most importantly, unlike the Martin fiasco, Mr. Chamberlain’s story is recorded ver batim on tape, thanks to his Life Aid medical alert system installed in his home. Read more…

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
Wyoming Man Killed Bear with His Bare Hands and Teeth
World famous hunter and hunting guide C. Dale Peterson of Jackson Hole, WY is one of only two men known to have killed a Grizzly Bear without the help of modern weaponry. His kill was verified by game biologists. Mr Peterson killed this irate bear with nothing but his bare hands and his teeth.
The plaque mounted next to the unlucky bear reads:
“This bear was taken by World Famous Hunter and Hunting Guide C. Dale Peterson of Jackson Hole, Wy. It is one of only two Grizzlies know to have been killed ‘without’ the use of modern weaponry.
Verified by Game Biologists, My. Peterson killed this bear with his hands, and oddly enough, his teeth. It is known that this bear had been aggravated by a group of backpackers, shortly after Peterson, unaware of the previous happenings, came upon the bear. A fight-to-the-death ensued. Peterson, having his right hand and arm wedged in the bear’s throat, actually used his own teeth and jaws to pinch off the bear’s jugular vein. When the bear passed out from lack of blood flow to the brain, Peterson beat the bear upon the head with a stick.”
