Police Nation-Wide Use Wall-Penetrating Radars To Peer Into Homes

kwbauer Re:With taxes you buy civilization, remember? (290 comments)

because the Geneva Convention only governs militaries in declared wars between countries. It does not cover police forces dealing with citizens/subjects inside countries.

Police Nation-Wide Use Wall-Penetrating Radars To Peer Into Homes

kwbauer Re:With taxes you buy civilization, remember? (290 comments)

I'll agree that it is acceptable for police to have and use in limited circumstances but very limited circumstances and even then they should have no problem obtaining a warrant.

Well, if it could actually produce the type of image you are imagining it produces (but according to the summary does not produce) then your voyeurism would be illegal in most jurisdictions.

Police Nation-Wide Use Wall-Penetrating Radars To Peer Into Homes

kwbauer Re:With taxes you buy civilization, remember? (290 comments)

Wow, just wow, ganjadude. Plenty of people have used exactly that "incoherent" logic to claim all manner of crap. It has been used to claim that warrantless searching of email is okay, that warrantless search and seizure of electronically stored documents is okay, to claim that banning modern handguns and rifles is okay. It sounds very ridiculous the way it was written but completely legit when phrased properly, doesn't it.

Police Nation-Wide Use Wall-Penetrating Radars To Peer Into Homes

kwbauer Re:With taxes you buy civilization, remember? (290 comments)

Since the Geneva Convention was ever only intended to govern the interaction of opposing uniformed military forces, I don't see how any police force could ever be thought to be in violation of the Geneva Convention.

True but nearly all large city mayors do take their marching orders directly from this commander-in-chief.

Police Nation-Wide Use Wall-Penetrating Radars To Peer Into Homes

kwbauer Re:I thought this had already been dealt with?? (290 comments)

but that was infrared. You see, when it was visible light we didn't need warrants then a document was written that said they did. Then this infrared thing came along and they said that the constitution didn't cover infrared because it didn't exist when the constitution was written. Then the courts said that infrared requires a warrant. The interpretation is not infrared requires a warrant because a search is a search but because a court said so. Now we have this radar thing and it doesn't require a warrant because it wasn't around when the constitution was written and the court only said that infrared gets added to what was around when the constitution was written.

No, this changes a regulation. Contrary to popular belief, POTUS cannot change the law.

FBI Seeks To Legally Hack You If You're Connected To TOR Or a VPN

kwbauer Re:Bad idea (382 comments)

Summary said TOR or VPN not TOR VPN. Companies use encrypted VPN for all manner of reasons, some of which include compliance with data security laws or is it now acceptable for a corporation to pass your CC across the internet in plaintext?

Spanish Judge Cites Use of Secure Email As a Potential Terrorist Indicator

kwbauer Re:What's wrong with Europe nowdays? (174 comments)

Well, we just followed the lead of the British and French politicians and remained out of it until we were directly attacked. I wasn't alive back then but I've never once read about the Brits and French jumping in to protect the Poles and Dutch.

Spanish Judge Cites Use of Secure Email As a Potential Terrorist Indicator

kwbauer Re:What's wrong with Europe nowdays? (174 comments)

Europe is doing what Europe has always done. They believe that rights are something granted by the king so they can be revoked whenever the king wants them revoked. In modern Europe they replace "king" with "government" but the principle remains the same. Only libtards in the US have been unable to recognize that this was the case.

The Anthropocene Epoch Began With 1945 Atomic Bomb Test, Scientists Say

kwbauer Re:Anthropocene Epoch. (154 comments)

but that was the Native Americans, an indigenous population, so that is a good thing because they were so in touch with nature that every descendent they have 'til the end of time will also be totally in touch with nature and they could never harm it.

Eric Holder Severely Limits Civil Forfeiture

kwbauer Re:For the sake of discussion... (311 comments)

Car was found to have 3 pounds of illegal drugs so the proper conclusion of the criminal case should be a conviction of a felony. Returning any kind of firearm would mean giving a firearm to a person not legally allowed to own or possess one so, no, let's not give it back. The money, keep it as it was definitely involved in an illegal activity. Same for the car. How would it not be automatically proved to have been use in a crime if the illegal drugs were found in it. Why did you go so far out of your way to appear neutral?

and obamacare. A failure to purchase insurance might lead to you not showing up to work which might cause your company to produce and sell less across state lines. We have basically stretched "regulating interstate commerce" to the point that the feds can require anyone to purchase anything on the grounds that not doing so could possibly negatively affect interstate commerce. And Obama is working feverishly to protect our rights.
