The guy who ran into my car last year recently got fined $350 for illegally passing someone.

Last year, two guys ran a stop light and hit the front end of my car.

When they failed to produce ID or insurance documents, the police just let them go, and took their word for it that I ran the light.

I ended up having to hire a lawyer for $400 and fight the ticket to avoid having my car insurance rates go up. Meanwhile, the police showed up but couldn’t honestly testify to anything because they would have had to admit they weren’t even on the scene for more than half an hour.

I went to check the court computer for something today and my browser suggested to auto-fill the name of the other driver for last year. When I was deciding on whether or not to go to court, I decided to scope out the other guys and see what their record was looking like. It turned out that they were just a couple of assholes who didn’t even go to court when they were in trouble with the court. So I demanded a bench trial and they had to dismiss the ticket because, surprise surprise, neither showed up.

So out of curiosity I put it in, and found out that the driver was cited for illegal lane usage a few months ago and was recently ordered to pay the court $350 after pleading guilty. He has an extensive list of felonies, misdemeanors, and traffic citations. So obviously the police believed his narrative…. (I must just have one of those faces or something.)

I suppose it’s not a huge dent on his court record, which goes on for four pages.

Somehow he does manage to pay his court assessments.

I guess it’s either drug money or his mom, who he had on the phone with the police after he wrecked her car into me and then got the stupid cops to try to pin it on me.

There’s very few employers who would hire you if you have a four page criminal history in one county.

Trump argues that he invoked “the constitutional rights of every American” after saying “only mobsters and guilty people invoke the Fifth Amendment” while his judges have destroyed the Miranda Warning.

The Republicans are fine with this. Anyone with millions or billions of dollars certainly already has lots of lawyers telling them to shut up and never cooperate with the police.

Video: You Have the Right to Remain Innocent (James Duane)

Mr. Duane says that “All too often” we hear, 20 years after a [usually poor and/or black] defendant was sent to prison, that they were actually innocent and the police framed them. They get a very small check and told to just get on with their life and then “we turn back to Brad and Angelina”.

If the police arrest and frame a poor person who doesn’t know any better than to keep his mouth shut, and he goes to prison, then the Republicans get one more felon who can never vote again (in most states).

It’s a situation without any possible downside to them.

Nevertheless, it was funny watching Trump go “On the advice of my attorneys, I can’t answer that because it would incriminate me.” dozens of times for hours and hours. It’s a civil case, so he doesn’t have the right to not take the stand.

Essentially, it forces him to admit for hours on end that if he said anything, he’d go to prison in a criminal court later.

When the Central Park Five was tried for a rape that they didn’t commit, Trump was basically arguing that we should skip the trial and have a lynch mob.

“Everyone knows they did it anyway.”

“Look, some of them have been in trouble before!”

“It’s not fast enough to give people the benefit of the doubt!”

I mean, using Trump’s own logic from the Central Park Five case, he’s way overdue for a prison cell and the FBI should have “raided him” years ago.

What are we doing pussyfooting around and giving him a fair trial anyway? “It’s taking too long and his prior bad deeds are evidence that he doesn’t have the finest background.”

The guy wants to go all Shakespeare and “KILL ALL THE LAWYERS!” when it’s some poor run down shmuck being subjected to a frame up job by the cops.

Then he deploys the “Constitutional right of all Americans” because, like the other mobsters and criminals, he can otherwise incriminate himself or commit perjury.

But that still doesn’t mean the right to remain silent should be done away with. The state should have to prove, with no help from you, every single accusation. The jury should also not read into it if the accused doesn’t even take the stand in a criminal proceeding.

Even if they don’t perjure themselves, the prosecutor gets a crack at them and will start asking trick questions designed so that even an innocent person will hang themselves eventually.

Just this week, in Chicago, eight more people who were framed by former Chicago Police Detective Reynaldo Guevara were tossed out by the courts.

Doesn’t help the people who had the “Trump Justice System” done to them of “Cops beat the shit out of you, frame you, extract false confession, and find a dirty judge who will allow it.”.

Highland Park Mass Shooter had active FOID card, father says “no regrets”, police lied and then changed story.

The Highland Park Mass Shooter had an Active FOID card, the father says “no regrets” helping him get it, and the police lied and said they had no prior contact and then changed their story to “Oh, other than those two times he threatened to kill himself and then ‘everyone’ and we had to take 19 knives, daggers, and swords from the house, but then didn’t place him on a list of people who can’t get a FOID card.”.

In other words, there’s multiple problems here.

Two parts of the Democrat FOID law have failed. The father didn’t have the common sense to not sponsor his underage son for getting one, and the Illinois State Police are so stupid, they actually gave him one despite knowing that he was a public danger.

Without a FOID, there’s no way to legally purchase a gun if you live in Illinois.

The police took mine in 2019 over a Class C Misdemeanor that was dismissed due to a negotiated plea deal, and it took me two years and a lawsuit to get it back.

Meanwhile, the Illinois State Police gave a FOID card to the Highland Park Shooter and enabled him to commit Domestic Terrorism.

Lovely state, Illinois.

The most interesting part is that just like in Uvalde, Texas, the police lied in such a manner that it would be discovered quickly, and then just kept changing their lies once they were caught.

There is so much propaganda and cop worship in this country that it makes me want to vomit.

The police in Illinois lied and introduced incriminating remarks that I didn’t make into my case (I invoked my right to remain silent.) and then my own attorney said “It doesn’t matter because that’s what’s in their report.”. Now he’s the Assistant State’s Attorney.

Who could sit on a jury knowing this, and still be inclined to believe these people?

As for Highland Park, the State’s Attorney says they’ll hit Robert Crimo III (the shooter) with every charge we have a law for, and they’re looking at the father, Crimo II, as well.

I say justice done would be to hang Crimo III high and hang his dad next to him, unfortunately the Democrats got rid of the death sentence in this state.

If you’re a gun owner in Illinois, don’t put your FOID card behind your driver’s license. Bonus: Highland Park Mass Shooting

If you’re a gun owner in Illinois, don’t put your FOID card behind your driver’s license.

I recently had an exchange of emails with Richard Stallman over the absurdity of gun control laws.

Some issues came up where I poked truck-sized holes in his arguments in favor of gun control, which obviously none of that has been working in Chicago, but aside from this I mentioned who the police are actually harassing in Illinois. Legal gun owners who have a FOID card.

Like that Navy veteran who started carrying.

He had a FOID card but not an active CCL. He previously had a CCL, but he said it cost too much to keep renewing, so he just kept the guns in his house and had a FOID card.

Then he had to do UberEats because of the shitty economy, and he kept getting approached and harassed by Chicago street criminals.

So he started carrying again with a FOID but no CCL.

When he got pulled over for a minor traffic issue, he pulled out his driver’s license.

His FOID was behind the license.

The cop saw the FOID and asked if he had a gun in the car.

He told the cop yes, and then the cop charged him with a felony for not having the CCL.

His life was ruined and he now has a felony record even though he was never going to harm anyone.

The state of Illinois took an honorably discharged Navy veteran who was dismayed by the crime and the 2 hour and 6 minute average police response time in his Chicago neighborhood, and tried to protect himself, and made him totally unemployable, using a law meant to go after “dangerous criminals”, or so we are told.

When I read that, I moved the FOID card out from behind my driver’s license and put it behind my health insurance card instead.

I said, “That’s a good point. If the cop sees your FOID during a traffic stop, they might pull what they did with this poor fellow.”.

And who needs more police harassment over exercising a civil right which is theoretically guaranteed by our nation’s highest law?

People like Richard Stallman have placed entirely too much trust into institutions that have shown repeatedly that they don’t deserve it and either won’t fix anything or are designed to actively resist fixing things.

Instead of simplistically suggesting that a ban on guns will solve violent crime, what they should be saying is that most crime springs from giving people nothing to lose and all day standing around to get angrier about it, like mass poverty and unemployment.

Capitalism wants unemployment. Can’t exist without it.

When the government says it wants full employment, what it really means is it wants a minimum of five percent unemployment. Minimum. If there aren’t enough where you came from, you might demand to be paid more for your labor.

Going back to angry young men, the mass shooting this morning at the July 4th parade in Highland Park, Illinois is another example of why there’s nothing to celebrate in a country that turns its back on citizens, rules from the alleged Supreme Court that women are a uterus with legs, and proposes additional taxes on people without kids (which was an actual policy in the Soviet Union of all places), and leaves everyone to fend for themselves. Not just with unemployment and poverty, but when you get cancer or something.

The two dozen people who survived will start getting a parade…..of hospital bills easily hitting hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Happy ‘Murrica Day!

Being shot and killed or left with millions in hospital bills trying to celebrate a country that threw them overboard thirty years ago is a sad thing indeed.

About as ironic is the Mexican family next door that Trump and his racist thugs that voted for him were trying to get rid of just 18 months ago shooting off fireworks all last night.

You can’t go anywhere these days without being shot at or something, in a state with the toughest gun laws in America.

The police came out after it was too late, to stand around for photo ops in their body armor with their machine guns, just like Uvalde.

To go along with this shit show where the police are locking down a majority White and wealthy Chicago suburb and going door to door and shutting down the Metra, is when at least this much happens in Chicago every single day, and nothing happens….no lockdowns, no manhunts….no Biden….no feds.

The police show up and count the shell casings each time in Chicago and then the news says “We’ll report on it in one run when there’s sixty bodies total at the end of the weekend.”.

This is mostly because they’re not wealthy and White down there like they are in Highland Park, so nobody makes a big stink about it in Chicago.

Even my mom said, “There are kids being shot in Highland Park!”.

I said, “There’s kids being hit in the head by stray bullets while doing their homework in Chicago!”.

This is what happens. This media circus about White people getting shot in Highland Park made the national news and got a direct response from Biden, and will go on and on for weeks, and the police are working it because they can’t just wring their hands since it was White people face down on the sidewalk.

I have also noticed that a similar phenomenon happens when people go missing. It’s a country of over 300 million people. Lots go missing all the time.

The media circus and phone alerts (which I finally got annoyed enough about to turn off) happens when they’re White and a woman, leading to me sneering about it on the news Web sites as “Oh great, another Missing White Woman Alert.”.

It’s not that people in the US don’t care, it’s that we’re burned out. We have to endure so many ignorant people putting so many ignorant politicians in office, that don’t want to be seen doing nothing, so they do the wrong thing (Democrats), or don’t want to lift people out of poverty either because they don’t want to spend the money (Republicans) or because they spend the money creating poverty traps in order to get voters (Democrats). In the end, it really is the same thing, isn’t it?

I noted the other day on TechRights that the more you fight to get ahead in this country, the more they suck you back down into the gutter. You go to college to earn more money, and many people end up paying more in loans than the difference between some low wage job and their new career. You pick up hours, you lose your health insurance subsidy from the government. You get a little more money this month, there went the help with your food and light bill. You have savings? That just means you get inflation and garnishment creditors and lost that.

It’s horrible. And I’ve tried to point that out, but the problem is that most people you can point it out to stepped into it themselves and can’t get back out and don’t want anyone reminding them of the problems they’re facing, so things go on pretty much unchanged.

McHenry County, Illinois judges give man 45 days for raping 9 year old and another man 5 years for tossing urine on a cop. (And a little more.)

In the same week, McHenry County, Illinois judges gave one man 45 days for raping a 9 year old and another man 5 years for tossing urine on a cop.

Contempt of Cop is worse than raping a 9 year old according to the judges, I guess, is the message.

45 days isn’t even the worst I’ve seen the judges in Illinois do over sexual exploitation of a child.

In Lake County, one county over, a guy got no punishment at all after faking insanity for sexually assaulting a child in the bathroom of a funeral home in Waukegan several months ago.

While the funeral was going on, a homeless bum walked in and forced the victim into the bathroom. Why wouldn’t he just do whatever the hell he wanted to?

The judges here are a bunch of dickheads. They’re morons. All you have to do is fake crazy and you’re golden.

This is a wicked and depraved place, indeed.

Pretty much all of the “homeless” (if they are, even) people here in Waukegan have pretty much nothing wrong with them at all, at least physically. They dance around in the traffic begging for money all day, which is a crime, but you see how the laws are enforced.

One of them ran in front of my car the other day, intentionally I think.

He looked and then did a complete 180 and ran in front of me. So you know it was some kind of a scam.

Without trying to sound like Patrick Bateman here (because there really are a lot of homeless people that do need a hand up, so I’m just talking about this one panhandler guy and some bad people like him), the only reason I’m not in big trouble right now for hitting the stupid bastard is because I just had a complete brake overhaul on the Buick where everything from the calipers to the pads got replaced or machined, and new fluid, so I can stop pretty much instantly.

So the worst that happened was Geico’s app yelled at me for stopping too quickly. (I wonder how they would have liked paying out $250,000 so that asshole could live off them.)

Then when I honked at the guy he gave me the finger.

He’s working the same intersection every day and people just roll down the window and hand him $20s and $50s and shit. Why get a job?

I was talking with mom in the car the other day on the way to the train station about what’s wrong with the world today. I was talking about the golden age of cartoons and why you can’t do something like Classic Looney Tunes anymore, because someone would panic that there’s guns, explosions, etc. used for comedic effect.

HBO apparently took Elmer Fudd’s hunting rifle and gave him a toilet plunger. I don’t even want to watch that. Forget Yosemite Sam or Wile E. Coyote.

I told her that “Even as kids, we all knew that this was comedic farce and none of us blew ourselves up, and even with the damned liberal left censoring everything today, the dumb ones and the offspring of criminals who buy guns illegally despite whatever the laws are sometimes get the guns and shoot someone, and that’s of course, not the fault of anyone who obeys the law. But the Democrats think more laws that the criminals will ignore will help.”.

Back when the cartoons were on the TV that everyone liked, nobody was blowing themselves up and set the house on fire. People pulled their pants up.

I remembered an episode of Disney cartoons with Goofy singing “The World Owes Me a Living” and how everyone was supposed to laugh at the absurdity, and now you have this guy pulling a Slippin’ Jimmy in front of my Buick hoping for a lawsuit settlement (that brake job was money well spent), and you have to watch out that he doesn’t get triggered by a cartoon.

What a world.
