You know this got my attention, with all the bitching I hear (and do!)  about awful lawyers!   🙂  READ Practical Tip – Where to Report Bad Lawyers – DO IT – They Don’t Just “Screw up the case” – They Ruin Lives Every Day!  I continue to call for state Bar Associations to disbar all lawyers (including those in politics – can you say: Lindsey Graham?!) who blatantly LIE to courts or to Congress or...

What is the most dangerous place in the world?  Brazil, rife with gangs?  Some pockets of America with crime everywhere, fueled by the failure of our “war on drugs”? Nope.  The most dangerous is not actually a place at all; it is the internet! The internet is full of people who are not who they claim to be, what they really look like, etc.   … PREDATORS AND PERVERTS. VERY DANGEROUS PEOPLE. The internet is ideal for such...

Top Michigan State Police officials using encryption messaging apps that can evade FOIA

Posted by on Jan 25, 2021 in Featured, Other Issues, Police Brutality |

I see innumerable problems with this bad idea! Excerpts from the Article: Top officials at the Michigan State Police have been using text messaging encryption devices that can put their internal communications out of the reach of the Freedom of Information Act and legal discovery, according to admissions the MSP made in a civil lawsuit. Among those who have downloaded the “end-to-end” encryption applications onto their state-issued...
