WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

If you've ever seen the movie Traning Day, there are two things you come away with. Denzel Washington is an amazing actor, and cops are shitheels for the most part. However, who knew that real life cops imitated art as much as they do in this instance?

Eight members of Baltimore's elite Gun Trace Task Force have been accused of a range of organized crime-level charges that range from robbery and extortion, to faking evidence, planting drugs, dealing drugs, and other serious crimes. Six of the officers, Sergeants Thomas Allers and Wayne Jenkins, and Detectives Momodu Gondo, Evodio Hendrix, Maurice Ward, and Jemell Rayam, have all pleaded guilty. Two, Detectives Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor, are in federal court. 

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS

In security theater news, a serial stowaway was arrested for slipping past airports security, for the tenth time! The 66-year-old Marilyn Hartman was caught yet again after sneaking through security at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport last week without a ticket or passport — but not before she made it all the way to London.

In legalized theft news, police in the Dutch city of Rotterdam have launched a new pilot programme which will see them confiscating expensive clothing and jewelry from young people if they look too poor to own them.

In unfit to exist news, Joseph Tigana III was arrested in 2008 and charged with running a marijuana-growing operation. Tigano entered a plea of not guilty and insisted that his case move quickly to trial. Instead, he languished in pretrial detention—jail—for nearly seven years before he finally appeared before a jury, which convicted him in 2015.

In drug warrior news, Jeff Sessions is in a court battle with a 12-year-old medical marijuana patient with epilepsy, because he's cool like that. 

In education or else news, students in New Mexico would have to apply to a college or commit to some other post-graduation plan in order to graduate from high school, under a bill working its way through the state's legislature.

ASK ME ANYTHING

It's that time again. That time where you get to ask me whatever you want. I will be using this segment every couple of weeks to help this show become more interactive and to talk about the topics that you want to hear about. It's easy to ask me a question for this segment. Just send an email to ama@thelavaflow.com or look out for my periodic post in the Pax Libertas Pro Fans Facebook group. If you're a supporter of this show then you get first dibs! Your questions will always be answered first and you will have a Facebook post in The LAVA Flow Super Secret Supporters group on Facebook and a post in Patreon.

Also, for the second time in a row, I've received a lot more questions that I thought I would, so I won't be able to tackle them all in this episode. Hell, I'm still catching up on ones I couldn't get to last time! As always, I'm going to hit my supporters questions first, then the rest. But rest assured if you didn't hear your question answered here yet, I still have it and I will get to it soon. I promise!

TEASER INTRO
A handful of criminal cops have been caught and are facing justice, but this is the exception, not the norm. What's in the News with stories on TSA bumbling, cops stealing clothes, Constitutional abuse, Sessions fighting a kid, and education or else. Also, a brand new Ask Me Anything segment with some awesome questions from you guys, and another new trailer for another new podcast from Pax Libertas Productions. This episode is brought to you by Heleum, a long-term savings accelerator allowing you to start investing in cryptos, without you having to do the busy work.

INTRO 
“Welcome to The LAVA Flow, channeling the flow of information to the Libertarian, Anarcho-capitalist, Voluntaryist, and Agorist community. Find us at thelavaflow.com. Here’s your host, Rodger Paxton.”

Thank you for joining me this week, from the state that is the top of the Politico ranking of the 50 states in the union for the fourth year in a row, this is the show that will bring you the people, places, and events that everyone in the liberty revolution needs to know. You can catch me on Twitter @TheLAVAFlowPod.

This is episode eighty, Criminal Cops, and it's Tuesday, February 6th, 2018, when there have already been more than 124 people killed by police this year, and the United States Debt Clock shows us at 20 trillion, 624 billion, 285  million dollars in debt. What's Rustling My Jimmies this week? You're about to find out! Let’s Do It To It!

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES
If you've ever seen the movie Traning Day, there are two things you come away with. Denzel Washington is an amazing actor, and cops are shitheels for the most part. However, who knew that real life cops imitated art as much as they do in this instance?

Eight members of Baltimore's elite Gun Trace Task Force have been accused of a range of organized crime-level charges that range from robbery and extortion, to faking evidence, planting drugs, dealing drugs, and other serious crimes. Six of the officers, Sergeants Thomas Allers and Wayne Jenkins, and Detectives Momodu Gondo, Evodio Hendrix, Maurice Ward, and Jemell Rayam, have all pleaded guilty. Two, Detectives Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor, are in federal court. 

Detective Ward testified that he and his partners were told to carry the replicas and BB guns "in case we accidentally hit somebody or got into a shootout, so we could plant them." The directive allegedly came from the team's sergeant, Wayne Jenkins, the Washington Post reports. Though Ward didn't say whether or not the tactic was ever used, Detective Marcus Taylor—another cop swept up in the scandal—was carrying a fake gun almost identical to his service weapon when he was arrested last year, according to the Sun.

The revelation is just one of many egregious cases of abuse that have come out of the sprawling trial that the Sun has called "Baltimore’s biggest police corruption scandal in memory." Prosecutors say the squad, which was tasked with getting illegal guns off the streets, abused its power by robbing suspects and innocent people, raiding homes without warrants, and selling confiscated drugs, among other crimes. But the BB gun testimony is particularly disturbing in light of 12-year-old Tamir Rice's death in 2014, the 13-year-old in Baltimore who was shot twice by cops in 2016 after he allegedly sprinted from them with a replica gun in his hand, and the 86 people fatally shot by police in 2015 and 2016 who were spotted carrying toy guns.

This same squad stopped a drug dealer during a traffic stop and robbing him of $6,500, then went to the man’s home without a warrant and took another $100,000 out of a safe. Sgt. Wayne Jenkins would ask suspected drug dealers, “If you could put together a crew of guys and rob the biggest drug dealer in town, who would it be?”

If you’re interested in police targeting regular citizens, maybe you should read about how the Maurice Ward had a technique of driving fast at groups of people, slamming on the brakes and chasing whoever ran. Or maybe how Jenkins believed that all young men with backpacks were dope boys. Or people who drove Honda Accords with tinted windows.

These are the worst of the worst, but this is just the surface. This is a systematic culture in public policing that we see all over the country, such as Cleveland, which hired the cop who killed Tamir Rice after he was fired by another police department. Or like the South Carolina state trooper who said he shot a man because he was moving erratically while reaching for his wallet. Or when a paid police informant planted cocaine in a store owner’s shop. This culture is wide-spread throughout the country. As TheRoot.com said:

It is not just Baltimore cops. It is cops. They will shoot you in the face in front of your infant daughter. They will choke you to sleep for selling cigarettes. They will shoot you in the back for walking away. And they will get away with it so often that we are shocked when they are indicted.

That’s the real story.

Goddamned right it is. Thankfully in this case anyway, we are seeing the offending officers potentially face justice. But this is the very small exception to the rule. Most criminal cops continue on, hiding behind the thin blue line of hushed protection from their other officers and moving from department to department. Until we start busting more and making them face the same music as everyone else we will continue to be ruled and terrified by them. This was supposedly a nation of laws not of men, but men with badges have more rights than we do, period. This is not a supposition, it is a fact.

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS
In security theater news, a serial stowaway was arrested for slipping past airports security, for the tenth time! The 66-year-old Marilyn Hartman was caught yet again after sneaking through security at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport last week without a ticket or passport — but not before she made it all the way to London.

Hartman, who lives in Grayslake, Ill., has made a hobby of ducking the TSA. Her arrest last week was at least the 10th time she’s been caught trying to slip past airport security without a plane ticket. She was busted for the stunt at least eight times in 2014. In 2015, she was arrested twice in two months at O’Hare and Chicago’s Midway Airport, and she’s also been nabbed in California and Arizona.

Sources told CBS Chicago that the most recent security footage shows Hartman wandering around O’Hare for two days last week before boarding a British Airways flight Monday. She managed to evade the gate attendant by “blending in with the passengers,” Chicago police told the Chicago Sun-Times. Sources did not address how she made it past TSA checkpoints to get to the gate.

Once on the aircraft, she hid in the bathroom, then found an empty seat. The airline warned Heathrow airport officials that they had a stowaway on the incoming flight. The pesky passenger was sent back to the US when she couldn’t produce a passport and was arrested Thursday upon arrival at O’Hare.

A TSA spokesman said Hartman was screened at the security checkpoint, but managed to get by without a ticket. It’s unclear how she evaded federal authorities.

If this doesn't show you that the TSA is nothing more than a sham pulling the wool over your eyes, then nothing will. A 66-year-old woman has bypassed their security ten times that they know of. There is no telling how many times she has done this without being caught later. Either way, we are led to believe that the TSA is actually providing security. It is clear they are doing nothing more than abusing civil rights in a theatrical production to keep us all believing that they are providing something that they aren't.

In legalized theft news, police in the Dutch city of Rotterdam have launched a new pilot programme which will see them confiscating expensive clothing and jewelry from young people if they look too poor to own them.

Officers say the scheme will see them target younger men in designer clothes they seem unlikely to be able to afford legally – if it is not clear how the person paid for it, it will be confiscated. The idea is to deter criminality by sending a signal that the men will not be able to hang onto their ill-gotten gains.

Rotterdam police chief Frank Paauw told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: 

They are often young men who consider themselves untouchable. We're going to undress them on the street. We regularly take a Rolex from a suspect. Clothes rarely. And that is especially a status symbol for young people. Some young people now walk with jackets of €1800. They do not have any income, so the question is how they get there.

The trial is due to start in the Rotterdam West section of the city and police say they will target one gang in particular. The scheme comes after a previous pilot which looked at the expensive cars suspected criminals drove despite not having an income.

There are almost no words... What the actual fuck? What is the most amazing about this is that apparently, the Dutch police have so much information on their victims that they know the jobs they hold, the income they make, how much debt they have, and who knows what else in order to make this arbitrary determination. How do they know these folks didn't get the clothing as gifts or save all their money to buy it? This is clearly a massive over-reach of power and abuse by authorities. This is scary, but it makes you wonder... how much do they really know about all of us?

In unfit to exist news, Joseph Tigana III was arrested in 2008 and charged with running a marijuana-growing operation. Tigano entered a plea of not guilty and insisted that his case move quickly to trial. Instead, he languished in pretrial detention—jail—for nearly seven years before he finally appeared before a jury, which convicted him in 2015.

Why did he sit in jail for seven years? Because he loudly and repeatedly invoked his Sixth Amendment right to a speedy trial. Yep, you heard that right. Since he was invoking his rights, he was forced to undergo three separate court-ordered examinations to determine whether he was competent to be tried. According to one of the prosecutors involved in the case, "Mr. Tigano III had been sort of demanding his speedy trial, which is part of the prompting for the Court sending him out for this evaluation." Tigano passed all three exams with flying colors.

And it was because Tigano kept invoking his right that he was made to suffer the punishment—there is no other word for it—of being left to rot in a cell without trial for 6 years, 9 months, and 26 days. As the 2nd Circuit observed, Tigano's detention "appears to be the longest ever experienced by a defendant in a speedy trial case in the Second Circuit." If that doesn't violate the Sixth Amendment, what does? Thankfully, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit dismissed Tigano's indictment "with prejudice" on the grounds that his "oppressive period of pretrial incarceration" violated his constitutional right to a speedy trial under the Sixth Amendment.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Duszkiewicz in the Tigano case said the judge ordered the third competency exam to make sure that Tigano understood "the difference between what he potentially looks at as far as a conviction as well as what's being offered by way of this plea." Put more bluntly: In a system that has gutted the right to trial by jury and given vast and virtually unaccountable power to prosecutors, only the "crazy" would dare to exercise their Sixth Amendment rights.

Again, I stand behind my assessment that the Constitution is a useless document that does nothing to prevent abuses, and is not worth the paper it is printed on. It is a toothless document that was being abused and ignored even before the ink dried. It never accomplished it's supposed goal of restricting government and it never will.

In drug warrior news, Jeff Sessions is in a court battle with a 12-year-old medical marijuana patient with epilepsy, because he's cool like that. 

Alexis Bortell, 12, was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2013 and has successfully treated her condition with marijuana usage since. Now, Bortell will head to court to fight Attorney General Jeff Sessions' crackdown on medical marijuana. 

"We are very optimistic that the case is going to come out the way it should, which is that the Controlled Substances Act is going to be found unconstitutional," said Bortell's lawyer, Michaell Hiller. Arguments will also be made on behalf of several other plaintiffs, including a former professional football player, a veteran and another child.

Bortell had already moved from Texas to Colorado in order to obtain the medical marijuana needed to treat her condition. Due to restrictive laws about traveling with the medicine, Bortell has been unable to leave Colorado. Alexis had tried several different kinds of treatment for her epilepsy before discovering that the medical marijuana she now uses was by far the best option. She has not had a seizure in three years. Despite this, the government has continued to maintain that marijuana has no medical uses whatsoever. 

Hiller will attempt to argue that the Controlled Substances Act, under which marijuana is classified as a schedule 1 drug, is unconstitutional. He claims that the act violates the fundamental right to travel, as well as the Commerce Clause of the Constitution and the First, Fifth, Ninth and 14th amendments. He believes the case may wind up in the Supreme Court.

Sessions' policy on marijuana has been strict: he has reversed the Cole memorandum, which encouraged leniency for marijuana users. Other policies that prevented states from creating more marijuana restrictions are also set to expire in the near future.

“No one else is living memo to memo or administration to administration,” said Dean Bortell, the father of Alexis. “I don't think asking for my daughter to have that long-term plan for her life—I don't think that's asking too much."

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Fuck Jeff Sessions in the neck. This is insanity. Here is a child whose quality of life is better because of a natural plant and he is literally trying to stop her from using it. He literally wants to make her quality of life less than it is right now, just to prove his authority over you and every aspect of your life.

In education or else news, students in New Mexico would have to apply to a college or commit to some other post-graduation plan in order to graduate from high school, under a bill working its way through the state's legislature.

If it became law, New Mexico would be the first state in the nation to require its students to spell out what they're doing after high school.
 
Jennifer Zinth, director of high school and STEM for the Education Commission of the States, an education policy think tank based in Colorado, said, "Requiring students to do that would be unique in the nation; no other state in the nation has done that."
 
The bill states that high school juniors would have to file a plan showing they're applying for admission to a college, taking steps to enter the military or preparing for an internship or apprenticeship. The plan would be filed with the high school principal and the student's parents and guidance counselor would have to sign off on it.
 
Forced education for K - 12 is bad enough, but now they want to mandate attempting to move on after primary education? And this is only the start. At some point, if this passes, don't be surprised when they start mandating secondary education. And, you know who will pay for that, of course. The taxpayers. Hold onto your wallets folks!
ASK ME ANYTHING
It's that time again. That time where you get to ask me whatever you want. I will be using this segment every couple of weeks to help this show become more interactive and to talk about the topics that you want to hear about. It's easy to ask me a question for this segment. Just send an email to ama@thelavaflow.com or look out for my periodic post in the Pax Libertas Pro Fans Facebook group. If you're a supporter of this show then you get first dibs! Your questions will always be answered first and you will have a Facebook post in The LAVA Flow Super Secret Supporters group on Facebook and a post in Patreon.

Also, for the second time in a row, I've received a lot more questions that I thought I would, so I won't be able to tackle them all in this episode. Hell, I'm still catching up on ones I couldn't get to last time! As always, I'm going to hit my supporters questions first, then the rest. But rest assured if you didn't hear your question answered here yet, I still have it and I will get to it soon. I promise!

My first question comes from Ryan P., who asked a bunch of really well-thought-out questions. These questions are really a gold-mine, so I'm going to milk it for a while and use one of his questions each time I do one of these segments until I have them answered. Ryan, thanks for these amazing questions. We'll start with this one:  

I deeply sympathize with the Anarchist mindset and agree that the only true way to achieve real liberty is to be devoid of government. Forgive my lack of faith, but I often find myself wavering between being very passionate about anarchy in my lifetime and then later thinking of it as just a naïve thought experiment. How do you see the practical, peaceful implementation of an America without a government? How does government just “go away” once the people have removed their consent to be governed? 

Wow, Ryan. This is a tough one to unpack. First of all, I am not sure I see a "practical, peaceful implementation of an America without a government." I think it is entirely possible that the first group to try to break away peacefully from the US of A will provoke anger and potential violence from the government of that body. We've seen similar in Catalonia recently. But, sadly, I think that will be necessary to pull back the curtain on the fact that government really is nothing more than force. When people begin seeing that more, getting that peek behind the curtain and seeing government for what it really is, it will pave the way for more people to break away from that violence. Eventually, it will reach a critical mass. This is my hope, anyway. But, to be honest, there is no way to forecast this, any more than we can forecast what our roads would look like today if the government wasn't holding a monopoly on them. Thankfully, I don't have to have all the answers. I only have to hold up a moral ideal of non-initiation of force as high and proudly as I can. As Gandhi said, "They say ‘means are after all means.’ I would say 'means are after all everything. As the means so the end.”

But, just because I think the end may be difficult to achieve, painful, or even damn near impossible, it doesn't mean I won't continue calling for it. As William Lloyd Garrison said:

“I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; — but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD.” 

And, another of his quotes that is really perfect here is:

“Urge immediate abolition as earnestly as we may, it will alas! be gradual abolition in the end. We have never said that slavery would be overthrown by a single blow; that it ought to be we shall always contend”

So, yes, we must urge complete voluntaryism and the end to the government from the top of our lungs, accept gradual reductions and continue being severe in our language. We will, I truly believe, eventually be heard, just as William Lloyd Garrison was.

Ryan, thanks again for your questions. This is number one out of your five. I'll get to the rest soon, I promise.

And, now for a bit of a silly question from my good friend Darryl W. Perry:

If you were a superhero: 1) what would your superhero name be? 2) what super powers would you have? 3) who would be your nemesis? & why?

Hm. I not sure too many people really want or need the answers to this question, but, really quickly, I would name myself Beard Man, my super power would be destroying statist arguments with my beard tied behind my back, and my nemesis would be Smooth Face Statist.

Next question is from Buddy P. He asks:

At what point is violent revolution acceptable?

Now, this is a great question and one that is hard to answer. The simple answer is that I don't know if it ever is acceptable, except in complete defense. Let's look again at Gandhi's example. In the face of violent oppression and murder, he still asked his followers to use only non-violent civil disobedience. I highly recommend the website voluntaryist.com for this and, by extension, my podcast Essential Libertarianism at essentiallibertarianism.com. I've already touched on several episodes on non-violent action, and coming in a few weeks I will begin touching on the non-violence section of voluntaryism.

But, I will say this is a fairly new revelation for me. If you had asked me a decade ago, or perhaps even sooner, I would have said we were already at the point that it was time for a violent revolution. I was wrong, and I'm glad I have realized that. But, I am certainly not saying there may not be a time for it someday. If, for example, New Hampshire decided to secede from the United States and the US decided to send in tanks and troops, then I believe that would be considered a time that defending ourselves in a violent revolution would be appropriate and acceptable. But, I sure hope it never comes to that.

Thanks for the question, Buddy! See you this weekend!

Jason C. asked:

When will bitcoin stop the bleeding?

This is impossible to say, and if anyone tells you the answer to this question, run away! Seriously, no one can predict what Bitcoin will do in two hours, much less anything else. It's as bad as trying to predict the weather but with much less data. This is why I always say, "only invest money that you can afford to lose in cryptocurrencies." I expect cryptocurrencies to go back up to record highs this year, but it could also drop to zero. But, keep in mind that historically there are drops in crypto every year in January and then it goes back up. This does not mean it will happen this time, but personally, I believe it will. Also, keep in mind, the price of Bitcoin is still higher than it was back in late November / early December. This time last year it is still way up. Yes, it has dropped the last few weeks, but it is still very high compared to history.

So, as far as I'm concerned, cryptos are on a big fire sale right now, and I'm buying! This is, of course, not advice, just telling you what I'm doing. Your mileage may vary.

And, the last question I'll touch this week is from Link W. She also asked more than one question, so I'll answer one today and one next time:

If you could wave a magic wand and change only one thing on earth, but it had to be immediate and permanent, what would it be? Would you ever consider altering the will of humanity en masse, like removing the instinct to aggress against non-aggressors, or is free will sacrosanct?

Wow. What a tough question. I would love to say that I would change the ability for anyone to harm anyone else, but I'm not sure that I would. I do believe in free-will and I believe without free-will, then we are not truly autonomous beings, so I don't think I could do that. But, one thing I would do for sure would be to wave a magic wand and "push the button," as Rothbard put it. He said:

The true test…of the radical spirit, is the button-pushing test: if we could push the button for instantaneous abolition of unjust invasions of liberty, would we do it? If we would not do it, we could scarcely call ourselves libertarians, and most of us would only do it if primarily guided by a passion for justice.

The genuine libertarian, then, is, in all senses of the word, an “abolitionist”; he would, if he could, abolish instantaneously all invasions of liberty, whether it be, in the original coining of the term, slavery, or whether it be the manifold other instances of State oppression. He would, in the words of another libertarian in a similar connection, “blister my thumb pushing that button!”

I would push that button myself, without a second's hesitation, to essentially abolish all existing invasions of liberty, especially government, but I would not end free-will. People could attempt to rebuild what was broken, but my hope would be that people would see how amazing true liberty is and work to keep it.  Does this make me a radical? Absolutely! Just ask the person who left my latest negative Apple review that you'll hear later in this show. 

Thanks to everyone for the awesome questions! All of these questions this time were from supporters, but next time I will be getting into questions from non-supporters finally. Thanks so much for all of the questions, guys! You rock!

Also, I've had two listeners buy Bitcoin through a Coinbase account using my affiliate link and purchase at least $100 in Bitcoin. Remember, if you do this, you and I both get a free $10 in Bitcoin! Thanks to Chris M. and John C. for doing this and getting us some free jingle. If you want a free $10 in Bitcoin, do to thelavaflow.com/coinbase today and sign up for an account and buy at least $100 in Bitcoin. What are you waiting for?

Until next time... keep striking the root.
