Cops & Vets: The Real Problem May Be Police's ‘Pseudo-Militarization’
I was not aware that veterans had particular animosity or resentment for police, but I can’t say it surprises me if that’s true. Anecdotally, I’ve heard and read comments by veterans that echo those in the T&P piece complaining about how American police treat the public and how it differs from how soldiers treat non-combatants in war zones, particularly regarding the pointing of weapons and the use of force. Moreover, speaking as a civilian gun owner, seeing officers point rifles at peaceful protesters just​ to use the scope is an appalling violation of the most basic tenets of gun safety.

These comments have led me to wonder whether we’ve misnamed the problem as “police over-militarization” rather than “police pseudo-militarization.” Everything I’ve read about rules of engagement and how military personnel engage non-combatants is far more restrained and respectful than what American police often do. Thus, calling American police behavior “militarization” assigns an unwarranted professionalism and respect to what the American police are doing and simultaneously misrepresents how our servicemen and women treat others abroad.

For more on this I recommend a recently released a short policy paper by R Street’s Arthur Rizer, a veteran and former police officer, suggesting we arm police more like Batman and less like GI Joe.   I also recommend a longer economic paper published in 2017 that shows departments that acquire equipment through the 1033 program have more uses of force and, specifically, more fatal officer-involved shootings.

Oregon Fines Man For Writing a Complaint Email Stating 'I Am An Engineer' - Slashdot
Since the engineering board in Oregon said Jarlstrom should not be free to publish or present his ideas about the fast-turning yellow traffic lights, due to his "practice of engineering in Oregon without registration," he and the Institute for Justice sued them in federal court for violating his First Amendment rights. "I'm not practicing engineering, I'm just using basic mathematics and physics, Newtonian laws of motion, to make calculations and talk about what I found," he said. Sam Gedge, an attorney for the Institute for Justice, told Motherboard: "Mats has a clear First Amendment right to talk about anything from taxes to traffic lights. It's an instance of a licensing board trying to suppress speech."

When the Car Radio Was Introduced, People Freaked Out
BY BILL DEMAIN JANUARY 3, 2012

Is texting while driving total insanity or just one more inevitable tide of modern life? (Spoiler alert: It's total insanity.) But was the radio met with similar opposition when it was first introduced to the car?

In 1930, laws were proposed in Massachusetts and St. Louis to ban radios while driving. According to automotive historian Michael Lamm, “Opponents of car radios argued that they distracted drivers and caused accidents, that tuning them took a driver’s attention away from the road, and that music could lull a driver to sleep.”

Google seeks to limit ‘right to be forgotten’ by claiming it’s journalistic - Columbia Journalism Review
In the first “Right to Be Forgotten” case to reach England’s High Court, two men are fighting to keep their past crimes out of Google’s search results, and the tech giant is fighting back by claiming it’s “journalistic.”

The case, which is actually two nearly identical cases, involves two businessmen who were both convicted of white-collar crimes in the ’90s, and requested that Google delist several URLs referencing their convictions, including news articles. When Google denied their requests, they sued under a 2014 European Union ruling which established the right of individuals to have information delisted from search indexes under certain conditions.

Penn State's 98-Year-Old Outing Club Is No Longer Allowed to Go Outside - Hit & Run : Reason.com
What's more dangerous: rugby, or a walk in the woods? At Pennsylvania State University, the administrators apparently think it's the latter.

The student "Outing Club," which has gone backpacking, kayaking, and hiking in state parks over the course of its 98-year-existence, will no longer be allowed to host outdoor events after administrators conducted a risk assessment, according to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Strafvollstreckung mit Hindernissen | law blog
Es kommt nicht alle Tage vor, dass Justizbehörden Fehler einräumen. In Mönchengladbach ist das jetzt – womöglich notgedrungen – der Fall. Es geht um den Fall des Mannes, der in einem Fanzug eine Frau vergewaltigt haben soll. Obwohl er rechtskräftig zu einer Freiheitsstrafe von drei Jahren und drei Monaten verurteilt war, verzögerte sich sein Haftantritt – wegen der Bearbeitung diverser Kosten- und Akteneinsichtsanträge.

Porsche: Andreas Scheuer blockiert Aufklärung in Diesel-Affäre - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Im März zeigte sich Andreas Scheuer angriffslustig. "Es wird neue, sehr, sehr ernste Gespräche mit den Automobilkonzernen geben", sagte der frisch gekürte Bundesverkehrsminister der "Bild"-Zeitung. Er verstehe sich nicht als Buddy der Autobosse, sondern als Kumpel der Fließbandarbeiter und als Interessenvertreter der Dieselbesitzer.

Für Porschekäufer gilt Scheuers Ansage allerdings wohl nicht. Denn sein Ministerium blockiert die Arbeit eines Richters, der mögliche Manipulationen am Motor des Porsche Macan aufklären will. Nach SPIEGEL-Informationen hat das Bundesverkehrsministerium dem Präsidenten des Kraftfahrt-Bundesamts (KBA), Ekhard Zinke, die Genehmigung zur Zeugenaussage in dem Rechtsstreit vor dem Landgericht Heilbronn verweigert.
