Supreme Court OKs Stop and Search Based On Anonymous 911 Tips

Redmancometh Re:That wasn't the question (406 comments)

If the probable cause to search was the call thats insanity. However if PC was obtained via the smell that makes sense.

Calling a vehicle in should be enough topulll them over, but not enough to search. However 20 pounds of bud is gonna stink for a long ways no matter how well its wrapped. At the very least in this instance I doubt very strongly the cop was lying about the smell.

Detroit: America's Next Tech Boomtown

Redmancometh Re:do they have a progressive view? (336 comments)

Youve obviously never heard of or been to Austin texas...or Houston..or Dallas. Austin is just a sliightly less laid back san fran with less male nudity.

Oh hey its also in the black with lower taxes and cost of living while California is in the red.

Yes there are conservatives, but most have moderate views which lean towards conservative. There are a few die-hard right wingers and bible thumpers but its rare and becoming rarer. Thats more of a midwest thing.

Outright racism is extremely rare. Far more so than say New York.

Tenn and Texas have the best bbq in the world, and Texans are extremely friendly as long as you stay out of Dallas.

My main complaint since arriving is the horrible awful weather here in Houston. 40 something days over 100F in a row a couple years back. Also snowing in Dallas in April...and hailing in July.

LA Police Officers Suspected of Tampering With Their Monitoring Systems

Redmancometh Re:Asinine (322 comments)

So if there were a bunch of blatantly race-related murders that cropped up you're answer is to "protect everyone from murder" instead of addressing that specific situation, because "it would be racist to address the killings of whites/blacks/asians."

People like you look for racism, sexism, or whateverism, in absolutely everything. We need to be vigilant against ACTUAL racism..of course. However, if you think what I said is racist, you need to get your race-ar recalibrated.

If an issue is recurring, AND the MOTIVATION FOR THE CRIME ITSELF is race/sex ignoring that aspect is just willful ignorance, and completely ridiculous. Since when is pointing out institutionalized racism itself racism? Maybe this is meta-meta-racism on a level I just can't grasp...I really don't know.

How is it sexist to say women are being finger-raped by cops? The cops aren't sexually attracted to men, so they don't generally finger them. Whereas with women they can just say it was a search, and no female officers were available. Hell in most cases the women don't even speak up, because they don't know any better. There was the one guy raped at the hospital under LE direction, but I don't even think that was the LAPD.

On a side note:
This completely-overboard politically correct culture needs to die. If you reach far enough you can find racism/sexism/etc in literally anything! Just ask Jesse Jackson!

  When did the intent of what someone said stop mattering? If someone says something that is obviously meant one way and you take it a completely different way to make it into something racist you're part of the problem.

Sorry if this sounds ranty, but I'm tired and grouchy, and the aforementioned "culture" being fostered here in the US is something I feel very strongly about.

LA Police Officers Suspected of Tampering With Their Monitoring Systems

Redmancometh Re:Asinine (322 comments)

So it's sexist/racist to point out the motivation for a crime if that motivation was race/sex based now? We should probably clarify I'm not talking about "the police" in general I'm talking about the LAPD.

The fact of the matter is what I talked about are the things that get the spot light. Women have been molested in "searches", and it has been reported, a LOT. When it becomes a recurring issue then it's a problem totally seperate from just straight up raping people.

I can't think of any public cases of guys getting raped recently. I CAN however think of 5-6 cases of women being molsted in a "search." The idea that not only is it common, but it's underreported, so that skews the numbers even further. So that specifically is a common issue, whereas raping men is mostly just an isolated issue (I hope?) as far as I know from what I read/hear.

It's the same with them beating minorities to death, or near-death. A new incident is reported like every other week. It could be press discrimination (the other stories aren't as "sexy"), but unfortantely that's where I get a lot of my news.

I know for sure police beat minorities up on a regular basis, because I read it. I know for sure police finger-fuck women against their will using a "search" as justification.

I don't hear about the others being beaten, so I wouldn't offer it up as am issue.

LA Police Officers Suspected of Tampering With Their Monitoring Systems

Redmancometh Re:Asinine (322 comments)

The difference here is A) My organization is not cloaked in the legitimacy of the state to use violence in the gain of civil order. B) My organization isn't known for beating black men to death, robbing people, raping women via searches, and harrassing people for no good reason.

If we were our organization would be rather unpopular. Something like this type of monitoring would inevitably follow, and you would either deal with it or quit.
Though on the ot her hand Chase bank basically got caught funding mass murder and no one is (to the public's knowledge) being surveilled.

Mozilla CEO Firestorm Likely Violated California Law

Redmancometh Re:Poor poor bigot (1116 comments)

What I don't understand is Christians don't own marriage..all religions have some form of it. Some of them even allow same-sex marriage.

Further, the Catholics basically had same sex unions among their monks!

This dude shouldn't have gotten fired though. No one should be fired for holding a particular belief (even if it's offensive to some), as long as they aren't "in people's faces" about it.

If he was going around the office saying "fuckin fags shouldn't get married" then yeah can his ass. But, if all he did was donate and/or support anti-gay movements in his personal life...no one has any right to damage his professional career for that!

Dyn.com Ends Free Dynamic DNS

Redmancometh Re:You cancel service? (242 comments)

I used them a very long time ago, and recently tried to use them for a project. I ended up just using records from one of my domains, and using a little magic to compensate for the dynamic IP.

My observation was that they've made it harder and harder to actually set up the free service. Every click involved trying to sell me something. It was as bad or worse about "upselling" than godaddy.

Ask Slashdot: Where to Sell a Vulnerability

Redmancometh Redmancometh writes  |  about 8 months ago

Redmancometh (2676319) writes "A friend of mine (mostly him), and I recently found a vulnerability in skype that allows for massive leaks of information. I've never heard of it, so I believe it would be considered a 0-day, and I believe it would be invaluable to blackhats.

I contacted Microsoft and was told they don't offer compensation for skype vulnerabilities at this time. I don't care about having my name on the technet blog, and I pretty much just want money.

My question is rather simple:

Who do I sell this to? I would strongly prefer I sell it to a whitehat company, or organization. I don't know the legality of selling it to blackhats, but it's certainly not out of the question.

Have any of you had an experience with this?"
