Being “disrespectful” to police in your own home, even if you’re cooperating, is now grounds for arrest?By Anonymous - 7/1/10 - 2:24 pm
The Cambridge Review Committee, which investigated last July’s arrest of Harvard University scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. by Officer James Crowley has issued it's report PDF.

This is the most emotionally disturbing video I have ever done! A flight over the BP Slick Source where I saw at least 100 Dolphins in the oil, some dying. I also photographed a Sperm Whale covered in oil all around it's blow hole. Please spread this around the world. Send me any links to places it gets posted so I can follow. I want to piss off the world. Who will answer for these gentle creatures?

After giving Senator Scott Brown exactly what he wanted and paying for the Wall Street reform bill on the backs of taxpayers by using TARP money instead of the proposed tax on big banks – which in Brown’s twisted world constitutes eliminating a tax – Brown’s still not on board with the final bill. Here’s his statement:
“I appreciate the conference committee revisiting the Wall Street reform bill and removing the $19 billion bank tax. Over the July recess, I will continue to review this important bill. I remain committed to putting in place safeguards to prevent another financial meltdown, ensure that consumers are protected, and that this bill is paid for without new taxes."
The Massachusetts State Police Trooper Stephen Kavol, who repeatedly punched "Pope" Alexander Serra, was the same officer who first encountered Serra in the South End of Boston. Trooper Kavol was one of the two officers who first cornered Serra on foot on I90. From WBZ:

It is suggested that you park at the "Park and Ride" lot at the top of Great Hill and take the trolley into town because parking will be at a premium. Further information is available on the Rockport Legion Band web page located at:
