The sheriff isn´t allowed to keep it, so they give it to the Fed who does their due dillegence for 20% and then returns 80% to the sheriff. ´The financial motive makes it inconsistent with due process.' Ẃe keep getting robbed by the Sheriff.' The TRO burden isn´t met. ‘Prove to us you’re innocent.' ‘Uncontroverted.’ ‘All you have is self-serving statements.’
‘Law enforcement, across the entire USA, represent the single greatest threat to our personal safety and well being,' said a commenter. Both the almost only prevention of crime organizations and also perhaps the largest criminal organizations.
This case was decided today, 7 years after the events, siding with the family. Is law enforcement or health care the greatest harm in the USA? Like police, its something that generally serves but also is widely evidenced to harm.
DEA et al, keeping it. ‘There’s nothing different than being robbed. Someone come up with a gun and take your money.'
Between 2000 and 2016, a Jacksonville's airport's customs seized $108m in cash.

Arrested for misplacing a document at a council meeting, after arranging a petition for the resignation of the mayor.
She couldn't sue the city council officials because they have qualified immunity, and they had made sufficient probable cause to arrest her (that she had perhaps stolen her document).
The police in that city arrested her and then released her a day later, dropping the charges. Ie she wasn't taken to trial. But she as the defendent has been trying to have the court to take it to trial so she can prove she had been wronged through law/police.
She's trying to say that the qualified immunity does not fit this case.
It's a ‘what if’ case. What if we allow city councils and authorities to do this.
Institute of Justice is working on it. Is IoJ the new ACLU?
Is good faith enough?
Some people were killed at home, and the police requested anyone (among 1b search users) who had searched that address.
There is little about a person that isn't revealed by reviewing a 1-month search history, including things they tell no one because they're private (and sometimes they would otherwise not even address).
The majority recognized people have a constitutional right to privacy in their internet search querries, and that these impact speech rights.
Before the Amendments were written, there was a ‘general warrant’ where a judge gave police a general warrant to go around, knock on random doors and say ‘we have a warrant’ and barge in. Since the Amendment, police need a specific warrant where they say who or what they are looking for.
EFF disappointed with the results of the case.
Go to your search results for the month and look through them, and see if you would like strangers/authorities to have that info. Now consider that of your family members.
The court took the trial on the road and it was hosted at a highschool. It's much easier to go see.
The argument police/city used was “We didn't need a warrant because we were just flying a drone over your property.” They also used “an anonymous tip by a neighbor" for an impetus. Their argument was that the drone was not touching the ground.
The town council is using tax dollars and “don't even seem to care” if this case is taken to the Supreme court and the costs associated?
Another what if case. Every town council will buy a drone and regularly fly it over every property all the time and look for things.
Said to be to combat planned obsolesence and companies selling cars that they know won't last. The bill also has things to do with right to repair.
What about TV? Phones? Junk food? Exercise?
Can't take drone images ‘for surveilance’. Originally journalists had sued to be able to and won, but on appeal this. It's legal only up to 8 feet off the ground and you can't use ‘ampificaiton’ (zoom).
‘And nothing in the No-Fly provisions has anything to do with speech or expression. These are flight restrictions, not speech restrictions.’
First in US. Seattle PD can't knowingly lie, saying it undermines public trust in police (not outweighed, said mayor). We might also say in society in general, since police will lie to one friend saying his friend said he did things and thereby pressure him into ratting on his friend. People have falsely confessed to murder because they were lied to and browbeaten in this way. The can still lie for felonies but not minor property crimes.
Seattle PD can't make a false statement to press or in any way that ‘shocks the conscience’ so we don't know what that means yet.
Not much progress against monopoly.
Ecosystem, rather than just different parts of a business.
A juror had said that the defendent deserves to go to jail because they're rich, white, and entitled. Another juror told the judge this, but it was a lie. Juror26 said 'm standing up for white people.

‘What’s with all the secrecy?'
It's all happening by default, if no one does anything. Just by not doing anything, something happens.
100k signatures in the UK, but still no public hearing. Canada and Australia also got more than enough signatures.
The racial equality policy written by NY DA Bragg aims at equality of outcome, not treating people equally. The statement the victim of the original crime made reads like he was the aggressor and the perpetrator was the victim, the lawyer says. ‘Evidence mischaracterized.’
Any streamer who makes $10k would have to register with the Can govt and then hand over info on their listeners.
In the vid, they also comment on how hate laws are used by the government to oppress groups who oppose them.
Usually people complain when Cali passes a new law.
This is a ‘backspace’ for data brokers (those who buy and sell personal data). With one single request all the companies have to delete it at once. 500 data brokers are already registered with California.
Most states sell your drivers licence info to the companies who collect this data. Post offices sell your new address when you change address. Post offices sell info on which people have recently moved to an area.
‘We’ll sell it if you promise to use it properly.'
'The burden of policing data brokers shouldn't be on consumers.'
People can go get your property data, taxes, whether you're up to date.
Note: if you write your name and address a certain way, you will be able to track from which original source your address for junk mail was leaked/sold.
JPM net income up 24-35% (lower figure excludes First Republic purchase).
How did the 8th Circuit get to that (clearly unconstitutional)?
Will ‘Chinese spies’ become the next pretense for invasion of privacy? The two pillars of the past 20 years, one is basically defunct and the other seems waning through counter-opinion/saviness of it being a pretense.
“A seizure violates the 4th Amendment when an officer extends a traffic stop with tasks unrelated to the traffic mission, absent independent reasonable suspicion. ”So, if they pull you over for a tail light being out, once they've notified you of that and perhaps ticketed you, then that traffic stop should end. If they sit there and start fishing, ie throwing questions at the owner and stalling, that would be ‘extending the traffic stop unreasonably.’ Other tasks are unlawful if they add time to the stop and they are otherwise unsupported by independent reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing. It might be an issue entering things as evidence found during that extra time. - 9th Circuit Court of Appeals of CaliforniaEnd-to-End Encryption Will Be an Historical Footnote! - YouTube
Legal mass wiretapping? Under the banner of stopping CSE, of course. Currently, there are no other options.

Monopolizing search by making deals with phone makers to be the default search.
Of all the things Google and other tech giants are bad for doing, this is one thing they are not bad for. Google Search is the best. When I can't get results using non-spy search engines, I go to Google and it is an excellent product. What would be nice would be competing excellent products, for different types of search (Google provides search for specific information queries of a certain type, and they also put answers in the results, stock graphs, etc, but they are useless for finding interesting and new things, blogs, bloggers, non-commercial things). Or they could take up the privacy issue with Google.
Listing things as ‘on sale’ without actually discounting the price. They raise the price to double the price for a short time, then discount it back to the original $20 price.
JCPenny, Foot Locker, Eddit Bauer facing lawsuits currently.
Reportedly, the financial damange is worse if they lose market share to competitors (monetary damange and bad PR), worse than if they didn't do this price
trick. Even if it's like $20m. Because these suits will likely disappear.
Cali has a regulation where the older price has to have been for 3 months, but reportedly this doesn't really prevent the stores.
