Center Police and an estranged couple have reached a settlement agreement in a lawsuit over a wrongful search.

According to federal court records, an agreement was reached in a mediation on July 19.
Marilyn and Stephen Fields sued 11 members of Center Police following a January raid on what ended up being at the wrong home during a service of a search warrant.

According to a complaint filed in federal court by Nacogdoches attorney Curtis Stuckey, Detectives Ricky King, Stephen Stroud, John Welch and Joey Haley, Sgt. Scott Burkhalter, Officers Chris Knowlton, Jeremy Konderla, Steven Thornburgh and David Haley and two unknown Center Police employees raided the home, located on County Road 2231 in Center on Jan. 7.

I really love this part.

 The complaint said the police actually went to the wrong mobile home and would have been at the correct one, had they followed directions on the search warrant.

But in the end they caved for the $$$

"Nobody admitted to liability," said the defendants' attorney, Bob Alderman. "The parties agreed to compromise the suit."

Where is Frankenstein????

This little law didn't seem to faze the local tyrants.  Laws are merely for the peasants.

The Virginia Right to Farm Act prohibits local authorities from treating agricultural activity as a "nuisance"
So enter Frankenstein and the angry mob.

Farmers in Fauquier County are planning to bring their pitchforks to an Aug. 2 hearing before the Board of Zoning Appeals to protest the arbitrary treatment of one of their own. On April 30, Zoning Administrator Kimberley Johnson sent Martha Boneta an official cease-and-desist notice for selling farm products and hosting a birthday party for her best friend's 10-year-old daughter on her 70-acre Paris, Va., farm without a special administrative permit.

US meat producers seek ethanol waiver

Don't hold your breath....

The US livestock and poultry industry urged federal regulators to suspend a government mandate for ethanol use for the first time as a severe drought lifts the price of corn feed.

A coalition of beef, pork, chicken and dairy producers said the US Renewable Fuel Standard – which requires billions of gallons of corn-based ethanol to be blended with motor fuel – should be waived “in whole or in substantial part” for 12 months.

The waiver request comes as drought covers nearly all the US corn-growing area and has driven corn prices above $8 a bushel for the first time. Ethanol production and animal feed are the two top uses of the US corn crop, putting refiners and livestock companies in competition for scarce stocks.

“The extraordinary and disastrous circumstances created for livestock and poultry producers by the ongoing drought in the heart of our grain growing regions requires that all relevant measures of relief be explored and taken where possible,” the coalition said in a formal petition to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Let's get ready to RRRRUMBLLLLLLEE

Looks like things are going to get pushed into high gear.

DHS has ordered the below items on a 15 day delivery schedule and 1 day to submit a proposal.  In .gov contracting world, that means that those items are critical in nature for the mission.

You do the math with the formulas for the 450M rounds of 40cal and armored checkpoint booths.

As the brief explains, “the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities.” 
- “147 riot helmets” with “adjustable tactical face shield with liquid seal”
- “147 sets of upper body and shoulder protection”
- “152 sets of thigh and groin protection”
- “147 hard-shell shin guards” with “substantial protection from flying debris, non-ballistic weapons, and blows to the leg” and “optimized protective design for severe riot control or tactical situations.”
- “156 forearm protectors”
- “147 pairs of tactical gloves”

The US Army has decided to enter the fray and stock up on riot gear too.

It’s more than just stockpiling surveillance drones to spy on US citizens: the United States Army is attempting to procure an arsenal of riot gear in case the military must go toe-to-toe with civilians on US soil.

Imagine being woke in the middle of sleeping with a phone call like this.

"Your driver was shot in your truck," said the caller, a business colleague. "Your truck was loaded with marijuana. He was shot eight times while sitting in the cab. Do you know anything about your driver hauling marijuana?"
"What did you say?" Patty recalled asking. "Could you please repeat that?"

The DEA seems to think that they can use private property at their convenience, with out the consent of the owner.  Nor do they believe that if something goes wrong, that they have to compensate the owner if that property is damaged.

Commandeered by one of his drivers, who was secretly working with federal agents, the truck had been hauling marijuana from the border as part of an undercover operation. And without Patty's knowledge, the Drug Enforcement Administration was paying his driver, Lawrence Chapa, to use the truck to bust traffickers.

The only humor in this story is that it was such a cluster fuck that that a LEO shot another one.

In the confusion of the attack in northwest Harris County, compounded by officers in the operation not all knowing each other, a Houston policeman shot and wounded a Harris County sheriff's deputy.

But as we know...He didn't build that business.  So why is he crying?

"How am I — a small businessman, father of three, American Joe from Texas — supposed to make a claim against a federal agency that has conveniently shrouded itself behind a red, white and blue cloak of confidentiality and secrecy?"

So under the cloak of the colors, the .gov agencies are creating many Angry Americans.  But that's all they are is angry. 

They will be angry sitting there in their lazy boy chair,  TXTing their friends and watching Desperate Housewives.

Nothing will change.
