Washington, D.C. Police Affirm Citizens' Right To Record Police Officers

NiceGeek Re:So, effectively (210 comments)

Yup, you didn't read it.

1. If a person is photographing or recording police activity from a position that impedes or interferes with the safety of members or their ability to perform their duties, a member may direct the person to move to a position that will not interfere. However, a member shall not order the person to stop photographing or recording.
2. If a person is photographing or recording police activity from a position that impedes or threatens the safety of members of the public, a member shall direct the person to move to a position that will not interfere. However, members shall not order the person to stop photographing or recording.
3. A person’s recording of members’ activity from a safe distance, and absent any attendant action that obstructs the activity or threatens the safety of the member(s), does not constitute interference.
4. A person has the right to express criticism of the police activity being observed. So long as that expression does not jeopardize the safety of any member, suspect or bystander; and so long as that expression does not violate the law or incite others to violate the law, the expression does not constitute interference.

RMS Responds To NPR File-Sharer's Blog

NiceGeek Re:some tired claptrap, but I like the Internet ta (634 comments)

I know one struggling indie singer, she's refused to play ball with the labels that have come sniffing around (refused to be slutted up) and her record sales are the difference between making a living as a musician, or having to give it up.
It's easy to justify pirating music from big-name artists, but in reality, most people don't bother to make that distinction, they just want free music, they don't care the slightest about the repercussions.

NiceGeek Lets get one thing straight (634 comments)

If a musician wants to release their music for free, it's their right. YOU do not have the right to make that decision for them. Period.

Google Launches International Campaign For Recognition of Same-Sex Marriage

NiceGeek Re:True equality (804 comments)

What the fuck are you talking about? Gays can't get married, heterosexual couples can. That's a very clear-cut inequality.

Funny, I don't see gays wanting *more* rights than heterosexuals. Just *equal* rights.

Google Launches International Campaign For Recognition of Same-Sex Marriage

NiceGeek Re:Polygamy (804 comments)

I don't know any gay marriage advocates who would be against polygamy as long as all participants are of age and willingly consent. I think you should be talking to some of the same people who oppose gay marriage.

Google Launches International Campaign For Recognition of Same-Sex Marriage

NiceGeek Re:So now Google is literally a bunch of faggots? (804 comments)

Wow only two comments in and some idiot managed to compare a consensual relationship between adults to pedophilia. Next up, some ignoramus saying "but what if a guy wants to marry his Great Dane?"

Texas GOP Educational Platform Opposes Teaching Critical Thinking Skills

NiceGeek Re:Breathless summary by the clueless (734 comments)

Explain away this one:

"Controversial Theories – We support objective teaching and equal treatment of all sides of scientific theories. We believe theories such as life origins and environmental change should be taught as challengeable scientific theories subject to change as new data is produced. Teachers and students should be able to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these theories openly and without fear of retribution or discrimination of any kind."

There is no scientific controversy regarding evolution. This is merely a way to get Creationism taught in public schools.

Fires Sparked By Utah Target Shooters Prompt Evacuations

NiceGeek Re:Bunk. (709 comments)

Also after reading the article again, I see the guy was deliberately disobeying the open carry law. He was provably in the wrong but you're still defending him. You are deluded.

Fires Sparked By Utah Target Shooters Prompt Evacuations

NiceGeek Re:Bunk. (709 comments)

I'm not going to take any chances. There is no reason to be carrying a rifle in a mall unless you just bought it.
I'll take my life over inconveniencing the moron who was carrying the rifle.

NiceGeek Re:Bunk. (709 comments)

So people are supposed to know that your assault rifle that you're carrying in a mall is unloaded?

That's right, I forgot, all firearms owners are well-intentioned angels.

Anonymous hacks neo-nazis, finds Ron Paul in "Operation Blitzkreig"

NiceGeek NiceGeek writes  |  more than 2 years ago

NiceGeek (126629) writes "The hacktivist collective Anonymous set out to take down the white supremacist American Third Party (A3P) in what they called “Operation Blitzkrieg” but they may have done much more.

In a document dump that includes private forum messages, emails, organization notes another other information the group found numerous connections between Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and A3P. According to the documents, all hosted here, Paul himself regularly met with many A3P members, engaged in conference calls with their board of directors and engaged in a “bridging tactic” between A3P and the Ron Paul Revolution.
