Of the four men the FBI helped frame, two of them died in prison, the other two spent over 30 years in prison before being exonerated.

Within days of his acquittal, Jay Cicinelli is demanding his position as a police officer back. Him and another officer were charged with the murder of a homeless man, Kelly Thomas. Despite the video footage of Cicinelli repeatedly hitting Thomas, a jury acquitted him and his co-defendant of all charges. The video footage and pictures of Kelly taken afterwards are very graphic and hard to stomach. Kelly repeatedly apologizes and screams in pain, yelling for his father as he’s beaten. 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.

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.
