atomic_state "Rialto cop cams "year-long trial saw an 88 percent drop in complaints against police and a 60 percent reduction in uses of force by the police" Did the Rialto police department edit videos, refuse to release videos to the public?Did the DA support this? Did the DA also refuse to release cell phone videos recorded by private citizen witnesses.?I'm still amazed that SB city council approved the egregious sum of $8000/cruiser to install dash cams (equiped with audio amplification enabling SBPD to illegally monitor conversations up to 150' away) given SBPDs history of editing dashcam video to remove evidence of police misconduct in both Beutel's and Tudor's DUI arrests. Santa Barbara is unusual; possibly unique, in its support of police misconduct in general and in support of use of excessive force by the DAs office, city and county government, and the media.
On Police Prejudiced Against 'Blacks and Browns'?

dewdly - "It is that preposterous story that keeps the wars going, that keeps the prisoners in Guantanamo, that provides the justification for the Patriot Act, the NDAA and the TSA, and underlies Obama's "assassination" of someone who was probably already dead."
you forgot the endless series of blatantly staged UN/DHS false flag operations designed to disarm American citizens. I guess they figure that if US citizens are stupid enough to believe 3 airliners crashed and left only a small section of fuselage at the WTC, with Mohammed Atta's undamaged passport on top, that it would be OK to reuse the same actors in 3 or 4 other false flags.

nativeson - what does divisiveness have to do with illegal torture?
On Reaction to CIA torture report?

White privilege is essential to the UN-NWO global agenda; Edmund de Rothschild has stated explicitly that global government will be based on British culture. Constant conflicts are part of the plan, dumbing down the US educational system, partisan and racial Hegelian dialectics, and constant diversions and crises.Congress doesn't control the CIA. US use of torture is a long-term ongoing issue.
How did Feinstein and Capps vote on this bill last week?
The US senate passed the 2015 NDAA bill last Friday, Dec. 12. The measure includes about 70 public lands projects. Meant to be a compromise between environmental groups and business interests, the package would designate 245,000 acres as wilderness while simultaneously conveying more than 110,000 acres out of federal ownership for economic development, including mining, timber production and infrastructure improvements.The bill includes this:Fracking to be allowed in largest national forest on US east coasthttp://www.theguardian.com/us-news/20...
This is what Rothschild referred to in 1987 as a "synthesis of environmental protection and development" and what the UN calls protecting indigenous cultures, and it's occurring all over the world. We don't control federal lands under Agenda 21.

2015 NDAA Gives Native American Land to Foreign Mining Corporation
"This week, the Senate will vote to strip Native Americans of ancestral land, giving it instead to a foreign mining corporation.
The action is buried in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act, which in recent years has come under fire not only for consistently approving billions of dollars for war, but for authorizing the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial. It passed in the House earlier this year.
This year’s version added a provision that grants 2,400 acres of Apache land in the Tonto National Forest in Arizona to Rio Tinto, an Australian-English company. Apache medicinal, ceremonial, and burial grounds will be given to Resolution Copper, a subsidiary of Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton. Rio Tinto has been criticized by the right for sharing an African uranium mine with Iran, but the land grab is even more damning."

nativeson - what's the point? The fact that the US is the world's recognized teacher of torture techniques and that we torture our own citizens should be part of the discussion.

nativeson: "they will be tortured regardless of what our guys have done to the enemy or haven't done to the enemy", and there's a good chance that the enemy learned how to torture people from our guys at School of the Americas, now called the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC). There's also a good chance that WHINSEC training can be traced back to some of the 20,000 Nazis brought to the US at the end of WWII by John McCloy, Dulles, etc, and placed in high-level CIA positions.
Feinstein's husbands' companies, current and former URS, are well-known covers for CIA; read John Perkins, "Diary of an Economic Hitman", for example.
I suppose neither Feinstein nor Capps have ever heard of MK-Ultra trauma-based slaves, although the CIA used them at Abu Graib; Abu Graib torture whistleblower Sue Arrigo M.D, for example.

spacey - not only do insurance companies make money, obamacare creates obamacare jobs, and obamacare payments are added to the GDP.

Noletaman - Schneider's personal opinion is irrelevant; city government is by consensus of the mayor and cc; Schneider can't legally act autonomously, and publicly stating she has the support of cc is fraud.This reminds me a lot of the dishonesty and lack of responsibility in Schneider's statement in response to SB Channelkeeper's lawsuit.

billclausen - 101 is a state highway north of Glen Annie, and bikes are legal; same south of SB.
