Protesting the Killer Drones

The description from the Facebook event page reads:

It has been announced that a multi-million-dollar Drone Command Center will be established by Oct. 1 at the Horsham Air Guard Station, controlling deadly Hunter/Killer MQ-9 "Reaper" Drones. These drones have killed over 4,700 people in countries we are not at war with, including countless innocent women and children. This program is creating new enemies and perpetuating endless war. Don't just take our word for it - for articles, information, and links, please visit Find out what you HAVEN'T been told about this terrible program. Drones are killing innocent people & inciting hatred of our country. This is our back yard. Please do not turn away from your obligation to become knowledgeable about this proposed facility. Stand up, speak out, and demand better for our community, our families and our country. The time is now - STOP IT BEFORE IT STARTS.

The Intelligencer covered us too with this video:

 The names of children killed by drones overseas were displayed and read out loud:

Did the Prosecution in the Zimmerman Trial Try to Use Reverse Jury Nullification?

Late in the night of July 13, 2013 George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter for shooting Trayvon Martin. (Details of the case can be read here.) The scary part is that one of the prosecutors, John Guy, in his rebuttal to the defense's closing arguments asked the jurors to disregard the lack of evidence and the lack of credibility of two key witnesses to find Zimmerman guilty. Hear his words in the short clip below:

The law requires that the prosecution prove their case and by Guy's own admission they didn't. In so many words he called for the jurors to stand the concept of jury nullification on its head. Jury nullification is when a jury finds that a person broke the law but that justice requires a not guilty verdict. (Unfortunately, judges don't inform jurors that they can judge the law as well as the facts of a case in order to acquit. Visit the Fully Informed Jury Association website for more information on this.) Guy asked the jury to disregard the facts and the law and to convict a man whose guilt wasn't proved. This is the most unnoticed aspect, and one of the scariest, of a trial fraught with terrifying aspects. Kudos to the jury for not implementing this kind of tyranny in the courtroom.

The sixth Smoke Down Prohibition happened on June 30, 2013 in Philadelphia, PA. The police state turned out in greater strength than ever. They put on an overwhelming show of force. There were several arrests but fortunately no one was hurt.

This is what a police state looks like:
