White House drone crash: drunk government employee crash lands Quadcopter on Obama’s lawn

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-28

An investigation is still ongoing after a government worker reportedly crashed his small recreational drone onto the White House lawn early Monday morning.

The device has been identified as a quadcopter. It can be purchased commercially and is equipped with four propellers. A Secret Service spokesperson said the quadcopter measured about two feet in diameter.

A White House staff member reportedly heard and saw the drone flying low and approaching the southeast lawn around 3 a.m. When the device made contact with a tree, the White House was put on lockdown.

Secret Service members retrieved the quadcopter and combed the lawn for additional objects.

An initial statement revealed there was no known threat. An unidentified person came forward after losing sight of the drone and seeing the crash on the news, and the White House is reportedly working to corroborate that person’s story.

A permanent no-fly zone surrounds the White House, and it is illegal to fly drones within the District. Source:TomoNews US

“After Confronting NYC Mayor, Police Union Leader Faces Mutiny of His Own from Dissident Cops

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-15

After leading a controversial campaign against Mayor Bill de Blasio, the head of New York City’s largest police union, Patrick Lynch, is facing an internal challenge of his own. Lynch, who accused de Blasio of having “blood on his hands” for a gunman’s murder of two officers and later spearheaded the two-week arrest and summons slowdown by New York City Police Department officers, will be challenged by dissident cops in the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association’s next election in June. Democracy Now! co-host and New York Daily News columnist Juan González discusses the revolt, which he attributes in part to a changing NYPD demographic that in recent years has seen officers of color become the majority on the force.  Source: Democracy Now

Exclusive: “Eco-Terrorist” Freed 10 Years Early After Feds Withhold Evidence on Informant’s Role

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-15

In a Democracy Now! exclusive, we speak to environmental activist Eric McDavid, who has just been released from prison 10 years early after federal prosecutors acknowledged withholding key evidence about how he may have been entrapped by an FBI informant with whom he had fallen in love. In 2008, McDavid was sentenced to 19 years in prison for conspiring to bomb sites in California including the Nimbus Dam. Defense attorneys say he was entrapped by a teenage informant who went by the name “Anna” and supplied him with food, housing and bomb-making instructions, and pressured him into illegal activity. As part of a settlement reached in the case on Thursday, federal prosecutors acknowledged withholding key evidence, including an FBI request for the informant to undergo a lie-detector test. This damning detail about the government’s star witness was found in thousands of documents released after his trial, when his supporters filed a Freedom of Information Act request. In his first interview since his release, McDavid joins us from Sacramento along with his partner Jenny Esquivel, a member of the group Sacramento Prisoner Support. We are also joined by McDavid’s lawyer, Ben Rosenfeld, a civil rights attorney who specializes in cases dealing with police and FBI misconduct.

AAA Free Tipsy Tow Service

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-12-26

AAA Free Tipsy Tow Service NOT A Nationwide Program

News about AAA offering free towing service nationwide to get inebriated drivers home safely on New Year’s Eve is circulating virally on Facebook but according to Snopesless than a dozen states offer this program.

When you see this posted on Facebook, tell people not to rely on the service. There’s only a limited chance it will be in effect where they live:

No Excuses!!! Don’t drink and drive — and don’t ride with anybody who does. Tipsy Tow offered by AAA: You don’t have to be a AAA member, from 6pm-6am on New Year’s Eve/Day they will take your drunk self and your car home for FREE. Save this number … 1-800-222-4357.

Actual Drunk Driver Rescue Services Available in New Jersey for New Year’s Eve are:

Sober Sam provides drivers to take you home safely if you’re too alcohol impaired to do this yourself. Call their emergency hotline at 856-520-5679 or make a reservation in advance. This service isn’t available in all areas, though, so check your options first. And, although it’s pretty low cost, it’s not free.

In New Jersey, free AAA tow service is available only in Morris, Essex and Union counties, provided by the New Jersey Automobile Club. AAA Clubs in other areas aren’t offering this program.

AAA maintains a list of other drunk driver rescue programs on its website. Check it out.
