Statist myths about government care for the poor evaporate under Dr. Friedman’s no-nonsense logic.
On July 5, 2011, Kelly Thomas was beaten to death by police officers in Fullerton, California. No legal action was planned, and no local media outlets would touch the story — until local bloggers got involved. Their efforts resulted in the first murder charge against a police officer in Orange County history.
Traditional media no longer effectively serve their primary purpose as government watch dogs. The importance of keeping a camera handy and having the courage to record public officials cannot be overstated in these times.
If you see or record State officials (police officers, elected representatives, etc.) engaged in unethical, corrupt or destructive behavior, and local media won’t touch your story, consider Utah Liberty Alliance your resource for getting the word out.
The Institute for Justice is standing up for Jestina and others by filing a lawsuit against the state. You can do your part by donating to the cause.
KSL reported Saturday that the Cloud Foundation released video of wild horses being kept in disgusting conditions by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) at a facility in Herriman, Utah. The article did not link to the Cloud Foundation’s website or the video, so I am doing both here in order to raise awareness of this issue and help get some reform going. Why tax dollars are being used to round up wild horses and pen them up is beyond me.
One of the greatest threats to personal liberty can come from law enforcement officers. Contrary to popular belief, police officers have no obligation to protect individual citizens. Their job is to enforce the laws of the state, even when those laws are unjust or unconstitutional, even when they harm people or property, even when they violate individual rights. Experience has shown that police officers generally have more legal protection than everyone else. They are exempt from many laws, and when they do break the law, their punishments are generally petty compared to what anyone else would receive.
Utah Liberty Alliance seeks to bring about a free society through journalism and activism, starting right here at home.
Repeal Stupid Laws
Does your city have stupid laws on the books? It is amazing how sacred people consider the laws of the State to be until they consider the law absurd. You can help delegitimize the State by contacting us with information about the stupid laws in your city. We'll contact elected officials to urge them to repeal.
