Hurricane Katrina evacuee Judy M. Smith says she is being terrorized and harassed by her white neighbors and the victim of "Law Enforcement Bias" by the Livingston Parish Sheriffs Department in Louisiana. She said her son was threatened with lynching and dead animals left under her porch and that someone got inside her trailer and tazed her dog. She also says that the Sheriffs department is refusing to allow her to make official reports about the harassment. She also says she was sexually assaulted and that the Sheriffs department is rewording her written statements she has given them to them to make her appear that she is crazy.

The George Zimmerman murder trial started today with his defense attorney giving a knock-knock joke to the jury, which they did not find funny. His opening statement was full of lies and he blamed Trayvon Martin for getting killed for not going home but instead confronted Zimmerman who had to shoot him in self-defense. The prosecution gave an opening statement that was strong with statements of facts about Zimmerman calling Martin an f-king punk and expressed frustration that they always get away.
The United States is blaming China for not turning over Edward Snowden, even though the United States was engaged in spying on China. The corporate press has been attacking journalist Glen Greenwald for reporting the massive spying the US is engaged in and one of them asked Greenwald if he should be arrested for making the report. This is just more evidence that the corporate media is not about journalism and being the 4th pillar of Democracy but instead they are helping the US government do damage control and divert the public’s attention to focus on the whistle-blower and the reporter instead of focusing on the international crimes of the NSA and private contractors.
Question: Are you buying the government line that "terrorists" are changing the way they communicate because of Edward Snowden revealing that the US government is spying through Facebook, Gmail, Skype, Verizon and other electronic communications?
