Woman who recorded cops acquitted of eavesdropping

OrangeMonkey11 Crooks County (1 comments)

It's Chicago and it's IL what do people expect, the entire City of Chicago and the state of IL are ran by a bunch of corrupt politicians that strive to screw over the public every chance they get. Where else do you read of Children and young adults being shot to death every single day you open up the Chicago Tribune and still the city government is in denial that the city does not have a crime problem. And then you have this in which cops abuses their power and then enlist other cops to help them get out of trouble when they get caught.

Here is another F-up law that IL have that i don't think very many people know of; if some POS broke into your house and you happen to shoot him and he ran out of your house and died on your lawn ( mind you this POS is still on your property) his POS family can sue you for wrongful death. It only consider self defense if the POS died in your home. And to think many other state you can be consider trespassing for stepping on someone else lawn, but in IL it's only consider trespassing if you are actually in someone else home.

UN Names N. Korea Chair of Disarmament Committee

OrangeMonkey11 Re:Good Choice (182 comments)

Well, if you support civilian disarmament, then you should follow the leader in civilian disarmament. Pretty obvious when you think about it. Call it "oppression" if you want to, but that just sounds like hyperbole. Have to do what's right for the country and the global community. If you let Americans have all those guns around, how will they ever join the new world order?

Well I don't support civilian disarmament, because it is our constitutional/amendment rights to bare arms. And as for American joining the new world order, i do not know exactly what new world order you are talking about because what I have read and seen on the news the world is pretty much going to hell in a hand basket; and I rather be in a country that allow me to have guns rather than ones that take it away from me.

Also playing COD is fun; but it's much more fun when you go to a range and have the real weapons in COD in your hands and firing them.

UN Names N. Korea Chair of Disarmament Committee

OrangeMonkey11 Re:Good Choice (182 comments)

Despite Eric Holder's efforts with ATF's "Gunrunner" and "Fast and Furious" programs seemed to have backfired, and the disarmament media effort in North America will be significantly curtailed due to the inept handling of that false flag effort. A country like North Korea - probably the world leader in successful disarmament of its citizens, is the perfect choice for restarting the international effort, and assisting the United States in making better progress in that regard.

So what you are saying is our government should follow North Korea by oppressing it's citizens and taking away their rights; because that would just make life simply grand like how the North Koreans are living right now.

Apollo 11 Flag Swatch Goes Unsold At L.A. Auction

OrangeMonkey11 Worthless (120 comments)

If it never made it to the moon it is just another worthless scrap piece of fabric; the whole point of owning space memorabilia is to have something that actually went into space or came from space; and not some discarded scrap of fabric that they cut out because the flag did not fit on the flag holding apparatus. Honestly it sounds like the guys who has this scrap fabric spin a snake oil salesman tale about it an try to get some dumba$$ to buy it.

in all seriousness though cocaine does not stay in the body that long, so my guess is they would never find this casual user base on how long it typically take to go through all the employees during the drug test

Teenager Tries To Hire Hitman Via Facebook

OrangeMonkey11 Re:What a shitbag... (464 comments)

I'm assuming that your co-worker has one of those over sized can of mace, if so what she need is a smaller discrete ones that goes onto her key chain. Also when before walking to a car the woman has to have her keys in her hand rather than waiting until she got to the car and fumble in her purse for her keys; if she is doing this the result is she's leaving herself vulnerable and at the same time make herself an easy mark. Also there isn't anything wrong with walking around with a can of mace in your hand if you feel unsafe where you're at and it is never and problem just to be prepare (never allow yourself to be the victim if you can help it).

Teenager Tries To Hire Hitman Via Facebook

OrangeMonkey11 Re:What a shitbag... (464 comments)

My coworker carries around mace. I've put her through the "that won't help you" talk a lot. It's pretty well demonstrated that I can grab and restrain her 100% of the time without her being able to mace me. If she isn't carrying it with her finger on the trigger, she can't even get a shot off. This is the same attitude: "I have a weapon so I'm safe." I have a brickbat, but the guy I attacked with it knows Arnis... that didn't work too well huh? And now HE has a brick bat, shit.

It all depends on the situation and this is because you knew before hand that she has the mace so you instinctively go for her hands and to restrain her, that is why it does not work; if you were some creep not knowing she has it I bet you the mace work. What we've always taught women in the self defense courses i used to take part in is never to broadcast that you have mace and if you feel threaten just spray and ask question later. It is better to be safe than sorry.

UK ID Card Scheme Data Deleted For £400K

OrangeMonkey11 Really for £400K (149 comments)

Did anyone think of just taking a couple of 50Gallons oil drums fill them with gas and shredded old tires put the drives in them and let these burn for a while; I realized that this does not sit well with many people due to the fact that it's bad for the environment. The other solution just melt all the data drives down along with a bunch of steels.

McAfee Lawsuit for Plays Loose With Customer Data

OrangeMonkey11 OrangeMonkey11 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

OrangeMonkey11 (1553753) writes "The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, alleges that McAfee consumers are duped into purchasing a $4.95 monthly subscription to Arpu, an advertising company enabling consumers to make purchases from an online ad with a single click using credit card information already on file.

“Customers are deceived by the McAfee-Arpu pop-up and believe that they are simply completing a necessary step to download McAfee software after their purchase,” the suit claims. “But a single click on the deceptive pop-up causes the purchase of an unwanted product from Arpu, a sale made without the knowledge or authorization of customers, using credit/debit card billing information that they have entrusted solely to McAfee.”

The suit says “nearly illegible” gray, 6-point type on the pop-up instructs consumers that they are authorizing their credit card with Arpu and that “information regarding the price of the $4.95 a month is set forth in nearly illegible blue, 8-point type set against a blue background.”

Man Sues neighbor Claim Wi-Fi made him Sick

OrangeMonkey11 OrangeMonkey11 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

OrangeMonkey11 (1553753) writes "The Santa Fe plaintiff claims to suffer from 'electromagnetic sensitivities' set off by cellphones, routers and other electronic devices
"In September 2008, Arthur Firstenberg bought the home on Barela Street, a few blocks from the newly redeveloped downtown rail yard here.

But last October, when a friend of his rented a house on the next block that backed up to Firstenberg's property, the familiar waves of nausea, vertigo, body aches, dizziness, heart arrhythmia and insomnia returned — all, he says, because she was using an iPhone, a laptop computer, a wireless router and dimmer switches.

Firstenberg, 59, wanted Raphaela Monribot to limit her use of the devices. "I asked her to work with me," he said. "Basically, she refused."

So he sued Monribot in state district court, seeking $530,000 in damages and an injunction to force her to turn off the electronics.""
