Cop Avoids Jail Following Sex Abuse Conviction, But Arrested Again for Creating Child Porn

repeatindicted 1050x525

In August of 2020, former New Mexico State Police officer, Ricky Romero, was granted a plea deal after admitting to soliciting and receiving sexually explicit images from an underage girl on social media. Instead of jail time for this child predator, Romero’s badge granted him blue privilege and he was given probation. Because he pleaded guilty before the trial, Romero was given an 18-month probation on each of the two counts he faced: child solicitation by electronic device, child 13-18; and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to court documents. As part of the...

COI #226: Biden Makes Putin an Offer

coi226

On COI #226, Kyle Anzalone breaks down Biden’s proposal to Putin to deescalate the tensions over Ukraine. The proposal was in the U.S. letter delivered to Russia. The US requested the letter remain private but it was leaked to the Spanish press. Biden seems to be willing to offer discussion on the U.S. missiles placed in Eastern Europe. While Biden remains unwilling to negotiate on Ukraine’s NATO membership, a deal resembling the INF treaty could significantly reduce U.S.-Russia tensions. Kyle discusses a recent accusation by the White House that Senator Josh Hawley is spreading Russian...

Novak Djokovic Is All of Our Future

8155421947 7bfab16f40 c

When I’ve talked in the past about the patchwork tyranny post COVID-9/11, I had more mundane things in mind than the fate of a major tennis star. Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia on Sunday after his appeal to reinstate his visa failed. And it failed not for health reasons but for political ones. To me, the kinds of terrible rules put in place for ‘public safety’ always conjure up images of casual oppression. Endless videos of pathetic public servants intimidating priests in churches or police arresting pub owners for serving willing patrons. But it goes far deeper than that....

On-Duty Cop Solicited Child for Sex, Will Serve No Jail Time And Won’t Be Registered as Sex Offender

nojailcop 1050x525

Benjamin Reinhart, a disgraced officer with Genesee County received some great news this week. Despite being caught up in a child sexual trafficking sting, he won’t have to go to jail and he won’t have to register publicly as a sex offender. Reinhart was “sentenced” this week as part of a plea deal, to just five years of probation. The Genesee Human Oppression Strike Team, or GHOST, caught the officer in April attempting to lure a child for sex. He was on duty at the time. Despite facing multiple charges, Reinhart was given a sweet plea deal for pleading guilty in August to a single count...

Dear Cenk Uygur, Supporting Government is Worse Than Supporting the Ku Klux Klan

dear cenk uygur, supporting government is worse than supporting the ku klux klan

https://youtu.be/ldmXyqAnbmI Mankind is a mixture of good and evil, of cooperative and criminal tendencies. In my view, the anarchist society is one which maximizes the tendencies for the good and the cooperative, while it minimizes both the opportunity and the moral legitimacy of the evil and the criminal. If the anarchist view is correct, and the State is indeed the great legalized and socially legitimated channel for all manner of antisocial crime — theft, oppression, mass murder — on a massive scale, then surely the abolition of such an engine of crime can do nothing but favor the...

5/13/21 Ramzy Baroud on Palestinian Solidarity in the Face of Israeli Oppression

Ramzy Baroud discusses the deliberately misleading way that stories about Israel-Palestine are presented in western media. The story, he says, almost always begins with the fact that Palestinians have launched rockets at Israeli forces, or at least presents the conflict as an even fight between two neighbors, in which Israel, of course, has the right to defend its own borders. What's never explained is the fact that the supposed Palestinian territories are at this point little more than heavily-occupied refugee camps, and that attacks from the Palestinians cannot be understood without the...

4/2/21 Immortal Technique on Slavery, Israel-Palestine and the Politicization of American Society

Scott interviews rapper Immortal Technique in a wide-ranging conversation covering the legacy of slavery in America, the false narrative about Palestine fed to most Americans and the ways that politics has become entwined in daily life like never before. He and Scott agree that the powerful have always deliberately played up the petty differences that divide us, hoping to separate and embitter people who should be natural allies. Social change is possible when regular citizens unite against those who perpetuate the evils of war, colonialism and oppression. Discussed on the show:...
