childIt makes you wonder how Florida ever let things get so bad so many times and has yet to figure it out that the most vulnerable need some sort of protection they are not getting.

Picture1Makes ya wonder if our jails and prisons have become mental health facilities or a place to keep those who are a threat to the public well being isolated from the public. Then again are they or are they not the same thing.

Pam Bondi raised nearly $140K on day of postponed execution

bondiAttorney General Pam Bondi recorded $139,076 in contributions at her Tampa campaign kickoff Sept. 10, the event that prompted her to ask Gov. Rick Scott for a delay in the Death Row execution of Marshall Lee Gore. On Sept. 11, the day after the fundraiser, Bondi also claimed another $26,600 in contributions, as well as $3,000 in-kind donations from the Republican Party of Florida for “consulting.” Bondi, who is currently running unchallenged, has apologized several times for asking Scott to reschedule Gore’s execution from Sept. 10 to Oct. 1, the day Florida executed the convicted murderer. “And Justice for All” is the political committee registered on Aug. 6 for Bondi to conduct campaign communication. The committee listed $55,764 in contributions dated Sept. 10. That figure includes $764 for food and beverages received from the Columbia restaurant in Tampa. So far, Bondi’s re-election campaign received $404,910 in cash donations in the third quarter of the year, with another $219,787 of in-kind donations. Her overall total stands at $809,500. Although the contributions say Sept. 10, state records do not indicate if the money was actually received at the event. Pam Bondi raised nearly $140K on day of postponed execution

Cleveland police suspend 63 officers over deadly chase

Police computerIn a sense this type of incident is coming up on the national radar more and more and is not unlike what happen with the lady who in a psychotic break tried to get into the White House and ended up be shot dead. She did not even have a gun in the car to warrant the shooting.

As bad as the general breakdown in law and order on the side of the law is that whatever punishments are meted out are minuscule. Patrol officers and supervisors alike failed to follow their own department regulations and procedures.

Think in terms of what this means to you as a person.

Police in Florida suburb make millions from drug sting operations, report finds

Money2It amazes me how much these cops were making and it is totally legal. Makes you wonder who is wining the war on drugs. The numbers are amazing. Can not help but think there is a good argument made here for entrapment.

However, by far the worst part is that it makes the police an independent entity by freeing them from the citizens for their money and makes them an independent and self-serving entity.

Reid Supporter Whittemore Gets 2 Years in Campaign Cash Case

Harry ReidIf this was not such a clear picture of graft at the national level then it would be funny. This reaches into the office of the lead senator of the US Senate. $130,000 is not chump change and there is a term in campaign financing called bundlers. They are recognized and rewarded for their efforts.

Money2

What bundlers do is offer deniability on behalf of the elected official.  They also take the hit for any violations of campaign laws. Reid Supporter Whittemore Gets 2 Years in Campaign Cash Case
