CNN: Grand Jury Won’t Indict Officers In Dallas Shooting

Secular Talk

Two Dallas officers who shot a schizophrenic, bipolar man holding a screwdriver within 20 seconds of arriving at his family’s doorstep last June will not be indicted, according to CNN and ThinkProgress.

Officers John Rogers and Andrew Hutchins shot Jason Harrison, 38, who suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, after they ordered him to drop the screwdriver, states Al-Jazeera.

“The family is obviously severely disappointed,” said attorney Geoff Henley.  Henley is representing Harrison’s family in a federal civil-rights lawsuit that was filed last October, states Al-Jazeera.  Henley also said,  “…(T)his isn’t going to affect our case. We’ll continue to move forward.”


Video Footage Of Florida Police Shooting


Here is a video of the fatal police shooting of Lavall Hall in Miami Gardens, Florida.

The dash-cam footage was released on April 9th by the family of the 25-year-old Hall, who was a mentally ill man shot and killed by police officer Eddo Trimino in February. The officer can be heard shouting, “Get on the f***ing ground or you’re dead!” before firing five times.

The Miami Herald reports that the shooting occurred February 15th, after police were called to Hall’s home by his mother, who found him standing outside nearly naked and waving a broomstick. According to CBS Miami, Hall’s mother, Catherine Daniels, told officers that her son was diagnosed schizophrenic.

“If you talk to the Romney campaign from last cycle, they’d tell you it’s not just about issues, also about merchandise and ‘productizing’ your candidates,” said Vincent Harris, Rand Paul’s chief digital strategist to National Journal. “I think that, if you look at the potential field, there are some potential candidates who might be easier to productize than others.”

Rand Paul slippers give new meaning to the term “flip-flop.”

There is a Rand Paul “spy cam blocker,” and for those of you who don’t like Rand’s changing stance on the defense budget, they have Rand Paul “flip-flops.”

Nanny Cam In Rochester, MN Hacked

Can a “nanny cam” for babies be hacked?

Business Insider states a Minnesota family was in for a shock last week when they discovered their nanny cam had been hacked and private footage was streaming online for all to see, according to local NBC network KTTC.

The unnamed family lives in Rochester, MN, and KTTC they kept noticing odd things happening in their child’s bedroom.

For instance, they heard music coming from the nursery, which would turn off as soon as anyone entered the room.

Suspicious of the music, the family used the camera manufacturer, Foscam’s, software to find the device’s IP address. Attached to the address — which was based in Amsterdam — was a URL, states Business Insider.

The family went to the site to discover an entire searchable destination of hacked nanny cams just like theirs.

“There’s at least fifteen different countries listed and it’s not just nurseries – it’s people’s living rooms, their bedrooms, their kitchens,” the mother told KTTC.

Even more disturbing was that the hackers are able to control the devices. For instance, the family moved the camera so it was facing the wall then a few hours later discovered it looking at the bedroom’s closet.

This isn’t the first time Foscam cameras were discovered to be hackable. Last February a nanny heard a man’s voice saying “Oh, that’s a beautiful baby,” from the house’s security camera.

The nanny at the house thought it was the family playing a prank on her. But the man went on; “That’s a really poopy diaper,” he said. The petrified nanny then unplugged the camera and called the family.
