Judge: It's OK For Cops To Create Fake Instagram Accounts

davydagger Re:Not seeing the issue here (184 comments)

So you like dressing in the uniform of your local police department*, driving over the speed limit with your siren blaring, and arresting people?

that is not a liberty, but job description of "police officer". Liberty != job of person.

Judge: It's OK For Cops To Create Fake Instagram Accounts

davydagger Re:Not seeing the issue here (184 comments)

because of the "war on drugs, war on crime", they got a whole people scared into giving up their civil rights decades ago, and we now think this is normal. Anytime someone gets a group together to oppose this, they are harrassed by the cops using the same techniques, and made an example of. We are taught in schools, and re-enforced in the media, there is no line between dissent, and rebellion, rebellion and crime, and crime and oppression. The government is our friends, and all critics are criminals. We give a really wide benefit of the doubt to cops.

We create a whole list of fear words like junkie, terrorist, psycho, of which we see a whole underclass ready to swallow society, and the government's wrongs, slight and only exiting to protect us from imaginary enemies. We have TV news shows telling us how we are all the privledged class, and social justice is aimed as us, not the system, while simultaneously misdirecting citizens at eachother.

Our political movements create conspiracies against eachother, and exhonorate the guilty.

Truth is, you're more likely to be shot by a police officer than a crazy on a spree shooting. More likely to die from a hand gun than an infantry rifle, and more likely to be killed by obeiseity than recreational drug use.(3 times as likely)

congradulations, you figured it out. They are allowed to smoke a bowl with you, then arrest you for it. Is it technically legal? no. Can they do it and get away with it? yes. Will they? most likely not. When will they do it? Lets say they used you to get in bed with someone else who they actually wanted to arrest. They befriended you, and used you to build the trust of someone else. They supplied you with drugs and did them with you to build your confidence in them. Now, they just might arrest you and charge you with drugs to keep you fucking quiet, on whatever police misconduct you might witness that would tear apart their trial.

entrapment? Entrapment means the crime is "not in your nature", which is highly speculative. If you're considered a "looser", than any petty crime is within your nature, especially if you're a minority.

I am going to copy this, because its a good reason I am not a voluntaryist, and ditched being a libertarian capitalist a few years ago. Its not voluntary if they trick or coerce you.

Then you're too stupid to be free.

what? You mean if everyone is not an expert in every knowledgable field of expertise, they deserve to be ripped off?

Thats the attitude everyone takes in law and business, but computers forgettaboutit

You tell people they are dumb enough to be hacked, and they deserved having their lives ruined, and their monies stolen, they go nuts. "Deserve to be a victim", only works if your fighting against the law, celebrities, bankers, or other capitalists or state authority.

the police. They don't have to work as hard, when if they can't catch the real perpetrator, just framing someone else without money to spent on lawyers.

Anonymous Claims They Will Release "The Interview" Themselves

davydagger Re:anon (192 comments)

Anonymous fizzled right after the kingpins were jailed

last I checked, they keep finding and arresting "kingpins" of Anonymous like its some sort of hierarchal organization, and not just a common banner for many diffrent losely knit groups with no real relation to eachother, except mabey a shared culture. After a suposed "kingpin" was arrested, they'd hack something else, fucking hillarious. We, in America, like to think all our foes in

Now, Anonymous is a bunch of script kiddies who are reduced to throwing LOIC at weak sites for DDOS lasting a few hours at most.

Thats all they ever were, ever. Except for a handful that figured how how to use sql-injection scripts. Anonymous where never skilled hackers, ever. Unlike other "hacker" groups, that kept to themselves, are very quiet, dangerous, and under-reported, the only thing ever "special" about Anonymous is that the news gave them lots of coverage as "hackers on steroids", and hyped them up, far beyond their skills. The more the news media created fear and panic, the more people joined Anonymous to create fear and panic. So what they lacked in skill, they made up in numbers. When they started doing moralfagging, they picked up more talented people intrested in moralfagging.

They were never an elite group of hackers. Never.

Every time I lean on them, they send me death threats and stuff.

Why are you leaning on them? It sounds like you're mad that they are not your personal army. Why should they be? Who are you? I mean you could always join them, its not like they have membership requirements, or set membership. You could try posting your requests anonymously, as they do. Or mabey you think you should be taken seriously because you crafted a reputation for yourself, built on what exactly?

Fucking do it.

Downloading it on torrent is a good way not to support either Sony or North Korea. In fact, torrenting this movie gives a big "fuck you", not only to sony, but NK.

Cuba Says the Internet Now a Priority

davydagger Re:Internet Censorship Paradise? (92 comments)

Similar in scale to china's "great firewall", is the "PRiSM", the NSA's mass surviallence program, and counter-intellegence programs both public and private, to keep content favorable to the US government and member corporations, as well as harrass the fuck out of dissidents, as well as impose draconian copyright enforcement world wide.

The only diffrence between countries that censor the internet, and those who don't, is the ability or inability to do internet-wide intellegence/counter-intellegence operations.

Cuba Says the Internet Now a Priority

davydagger Re:Tiny Island (92 comments)

I think its time to lay some fiber in cuba, and if the thaw is real, and has any perminance, run some undersea fiber between florida and cuba. If anything, that will help add perminance to the thaw.

Was he one of the 53 "political prisoners" released from jail right after the US opened their embassy? Do you even know his name?

Let's start with forcing the Cuban Government to take bi-polar meds first?

No, its a change of policy. We screamed for years about trying to get the Cuban government to change its policy to a more social libertarian one, and they finally start making moves in the direction, and we call them crazy. No sir. This is a step in the right direction. No need for hostilities.

Skeptics Would Like Media To Stop Calling Science Deniers 'Skeptics'

davydagger Re:News at 11.. (655 comments)

"Piracy" a pejorative meant to associate copyright infringement with theft

It just so happened, that just as the "piracy" debate was gaining traction, so was the cartoonized image of a "pirate" depicted in media in the "pirates vs ninjas", a send up over two hilariously carcatured media stereotypes about brigands from the past of two seperate civilizations. Both were seen as virtuous, and the "pirate" gained a fun, safe positive conotation.

Study: Red Light Cameras Don't Improve Safety

davydagger Re:Safety? (239 comments)

its basicly a tax, mostly on the poor, and anyone who can't fight the tickets in court. Its a tax without raising taxes, what the cities should do.

Study: Red Light Cameras Don't Improve Safety

davydagger Re:Study financed by (239 comments)

before you insert race on this, know that red light cameras are basicly a tax that hits the city's poorest residents the hardest. Cops don't write nearly as many tickets as red light cameras, and your argument is bunk. Your basicly trying to use a race paradigm to prop up what is a broken law, that if anything, hurts the poor the most. The problem is that these things issue tickets with impunity knowing that even if they are wrong, most people can't afford to fight the ticket, so they win by default. Its another excuse to put cameras in public, controlled by the police.

Google Sues Mississippi Attorney General For Conspiring With Movie Industry

davydagger Ahh, the lawyer, America's privledged class (111 comments)

The politically privledged class of the lawyer, of which all rules are bent to revolve around him. There is not "rule of law", rather "law is only meant to protect the lawyers", to include those in office. Everyone elses political status stems from how usefully we are to this lawyer aristocracy.

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

davydagger Re:harassment attribution (551 comments)

I think its more "actual terrorism" is more important issue than your silly little #gamergate debate.

There is nothing in #gamergate nearly as serious as an actual act of terrorism and death threats that are very specific, including very specific refrences to real weapons.

Thats actual terrorism. Whatever debate you were having on ethics is not nearly as important as terrorism.

iPhone users demand ethics from apple over manufacture

davydagger davydagger writes  |  more than 2 years ago

davydagger (2566757) writes "Apple iphone users demand that apple redress poor working conditions of workers who make their iPhone. Their demand is for an "ethical" iphone. Given apple's long running and long ignored ethical problems, along many lines, it'd almost be fair to suggest jumping ship. Of course this was long suggested, as there is not a single Apple product where there is no viable competition.(some would say BETTER even)."
