Quote
A Florida man who does not believe in God thinks he's entitled to an attorney with similar beliefs after mistaking his roommate for Jesus Christ and attacking him.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 51-year-old Gustav Potthoff first hurled a glass at Raymond Hernandez, then tried to stab him with a butter knife as Hernandez watched television in their Orlando home. Potthoff denied throwing the glass, because that's apparently beneath him.

Potthoff, an atheist, has requested a lawyer who thinks like him, claiming it's "just [his] human rights]" because he's "allowed to be with someone of [his] own kind." The Sentinel says a judge basically told Pothoff, who's broke, that beggars can't be choosers: Pay for an atheist lawyer if you want one, or deal with a public defender in your price range.

Otherwise, he'll be with his own kind—criminals—in jail.

A review of medical records, police reports and a federal lawsuit show deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office, police officers with the City of Deming and medical professionals at the Gila Regional Medical Center made some questionable decisions.

The incident began January 2, 2013 after David Eckert finished shopping at the Wal-Mart in Deming. According to a federal lawsuit, Eckert didn't make a complete stop at a stop sign coming out of the parking lot and was immediately stopped by law enforcement.

Eckert's attorney, Shannon Kennedy, said in an interview with KOB that after law enforcement asked him to step out of the vehicle, he appeared to be clenching his buttocks. Law enforcement thought that was probable cause to suspect that Eckert was hiding narcotics in his anal cavity. While officers detained Eckert, they secured a search warrant from a judge that allowed for an anal cavity search.

The lawsuit claims that Deming Police tried taking Eckert to an emergency room in Deming, but a doctor there refused to perform the anal cavity search citing it was "unethical."

But physicians at the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City agreed to perform the procedure and a few hours later, Eckert was admitted.

What Happened

While there, Eckert was subjected to repeated and humiliating forced medical procedures. A review of Eckert's medical records, which he released to KOB, and details in the lawsuit show the following happened:

1. Eckert's abdominal area was x-rayed; no narcotics were found.

2. Doctors then performed an exam of Eckert's anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.

3. Doctors performed a second exam of Eckert's anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.

4. Doctors penetrated Eckert's anus to insert an enema. Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool. No narcotics were found.

5. Doctors penetrated Eckert's anus to insert an enema a second time. Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool. No narcotics were found.

6. Doctors penetrated Eckert's anus to insert an enema a third time. Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool. No narcotics were found.

7. Doctors then x-rayed Eckert again; no narcotics were found.

8. Doctors prepared Eckert for surgery, sedated him, and then performed a colonoscopy where a scope with a camera was inserted into Eckert's anus, rectum, colon, and large intestines. No narcotics were found.

Throughout this ordeal, Eckert protested and never gave doctors at the Gila Regional Medical Center consent to perform any of these medical procedures.

"If the officers in Hidalgo County and the City of Deming are seeking warrants for anal cavity searches based on how they're standing and the warrant allows doctors at the Gila Hospital of Horrors to go in and do enemas and colonoscopies without consent, then anyone can be seized and that's why the public needs to know about this," Kennedy said.

An 8-year-old boy was suspended from a Florida school for using his finger to simulate a gun during a game of cops and robbers with a classmate, his family said.
Jordan Bennett was sent home from Harmony Community School in Osceola County after he and his pal were busted using the gesture during their game on Friday, WKMG-TV reported.
“There was nothing in his hand. He used his thumb and index finger,” the child’s outraged mother, Bonnie Bennett, told the news station.

Gambia's president warned the United Nations General Assembly on Friday that gays were a threat to human existence, along with excessive greed and obsession with world domination, and criticized other countries for regarding homosexuality as a human right.

"Those who promote homosexuality want to put an end to human existence," Gambian President Yahya Jammeh told the gathering of world leaders in New York. "It is becoming an epidemic and we Muslims and Africans will fight to end this behavior."

"Homosexuality in all its forms and manifestations which, though very evil, antihuman as well as anti-Allah, is being promoted as a human right by some powers," said Jammeh, who is accused by activists of human rights abuses during his rule.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Three Virginia Beach seventh graders learned their fates Tuesday morning when they were suspended for shooting airsoft guns on private property.

During a hearing with a disciplinary committee Tuesday morning, Aidan Clark, Khalid Caraballo and a third friend were given long-term suspensions in a unanimous vote. The suspensions will last until June, but a hearing will be held January 27 to determine if they will be allowed back in school sooner.

The students' parents initially told WAVY News' Andy Fox their children were expelled, but when Fox looked at the official letter from the school, he found they were long-term suspensions and not expulsions, as was recommended by the school's principal. Their parents still feel as though their children were expelled.

General Discussion / Question about Freedom of Speech
« on: May 12, 2013, 07:25:19 PM »
Now since this is a message board full of liberty minded people I want to ask the following If a person who said something on twitter that was offensive and the company that employs him fined him for his comments is that a violation of Freedom of speech? Well that is what happened to Jay Briscoe the Ring of Honor Champion when he typed this on twitter

Quote
The Delaware Senate passed a bill yesterday that allows same sex couples to get married. If that makes you happy, then congratulations!!!!!! try and teach my kids that there's nothing wrong with that and I'll f***ing shoot you
   

Since then he deleted his twitter account and Ring of honor took his checks from the next two live shows he's going to appear to a charity called  Partners Against Hate-http://www.partnersagainsthate.org/ and on top of that he apologized as well


But there some fans see here that say his Freedom of speech was violated


Well In My opinion I don't think his rights were violated but I want your thoughts on the matter people.
