ISSUE THE FIRST

"If you compare the number of crime reported and the number of persons punished you will see that 90% of those committing crime do not believe in or obey state Statutes. That does not even count those crimes that go unreported. You are a dreamer if you think our system of government or any system works well."--------paragraph 2, from the

(1) That is a non-factual statement

The Principle of the Burden of Proof applies to all that is published.

It is never the Burden of the Critic to prove an assertion as false.

The Claimant has the Burden of Proof to support published assertions with evidence.

Of course, you may be uninformed at to the necessity to adhere to any kind of an objective standard regarding your public communications.

Irrational persons are usually slow to comprehend such distinctions as to Dialectical Method, which is why voices such as yours are relegated to the cacophany of postings which amount to little more than a kind of textual "static" or "White Noise" in the public media.

UNION, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- News 4 has new information about a female teacher charged with sexually assaulting a young teen. The Union Middle School teacher allegedly met her victim at school.

News 4 first reported this case back in February, but the teacher was just charged this week. In February, parents were frustrated because no one would name the teacher accused of sexually assaulting a kid off campus. Detectives say the teacher no longer works at Union Middle, the very place they say she met her alleged victim -- in a computer class that she taught.

A school resource officer launched an investigation into the Union Middle School computer teacher in February. Five months later, 37-year-old Traci Storie is charged with two counts of statutory sodomy on a middle school-aged boy."----------------------read more @: http://www.kmov.com/news/editors-pick/Teacher-charged-with--162441726.html

SOUTH CAROLINA:

.

"A Dorchester County judge ruled Friday there is enough evidence to proceed with the trial of a Dubose Middle teacher accused of sexual solicitation of a minor, and assault and battery second degree, according to ABC News 4.

William Albert Brown, 49, of Summerville was arrested May 11 after a student alleged he had made inappropriate comments and touched her.

ABC News 4 reported:

"She reported later that he had told her to come back later during 5thor 7th period, that he was 'a little backed up' and she needed to do something about that," said Craig Legates, a Dorchester County Sheriff's Office detective.

"She said that later he came back, told her that she turned him on and she felt him touching her thigh," Legates said. "She described it as him taking his fingers and making a walking motion to her upper, inner thigh."

Detective Legates says they have three witnesses, one of which says he saw Brown inappropriately touch the victim.

Brown's attorney Andy Savage said in the report that the trial may take months to have a set date and that the evidence provided by the prosecution has "gaps.""--------read more @ http://summerville.patch.com/articles/teacher-sexual-assault-case-brown-to-face-trial

One of the consequences (and causes) of the Sandusky sex scandal at Penn State University, was the discovery that Coach Joe Paterno and three top University administrators have been found to have "covered up" claims that Sandusky was sexually abusing students.

December 19, 2011|By Rafael A. Olmeda, Sun Sentinel
FORT LAUDERDALE - A former Lauderhill Middle School teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student entered a no contest plea to aggravated child abuse charges Monday, accepting a punishment of three years in prison instead of a lifetime as a registered sex offender.

Kristen Nicole Sullivan, 27, was immediately granted a furlough and will have to surrender to begin her prison term by 8:30 a.m. Jan. 3. If she fails to appear, Broward Circuit Judge Lisa Porter said, the three years will be increased to 90 years."----------read more @

"Jerry Sandusky, Penn State Booster Sexually Abused Boys On Private Plane: Witness"

Posted: 08/13/2012 11:16 am Updated: 08/13/2012 1:01 pm

"A witness interviewed by federal authorities claims convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky and a Penn State booster sexually assaulted boys on a private plane, according to an exclusive RadarOnline report.

U.S. Postal Inspectors interviewed the witness after opening a new investigation into whether Sandusky shared child pornography.

The witness, who "has a strong tie to the booster he is accusing," claims that Sandusky and the fundraiser abused two boys on a private plane in Pennsylvania, the site reported. RadarOnline's unidentified source doesn't know whether the two boys are among Sandusky's previously identified victims.

It remains unclear why the witness did not come forward during the trial against Sandusky, who was convicted on 45 counts related to the sexual abuse of 10 boys. Federal authorities are reportedly investigating the new claims, which remain uncorroborated."---------read more @:

A former third-grade teacher in Los Angeles has been arrested for allegedly molesting nearly two dozen children after photos of students posed in bondage positions were passed to the sheriff's department.

Mark Berndt, 61, a teacher with more than 30 years experience at Miramonte Elementary School in south Los Angeles, is charged with molesting 23 children, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Police began the investigation after a photo processing facility passed along suspicious images depicting students blindfolded with their mouths covered in tape."------------read more @

"Erica DePalo, 33, won the Essex County, N.J. Teacher of the Year award in 2011.
Last Friday, she was arrested and accused of having a sexual relationship with one of her 15-year-old honors English students, according to CBS New York.

Many of the students that the station spoke with were blindsided by the allegations.

"I was kind of shocked," Arnold Ajondo said. "I was a little surprised. She was really close with the students and we all liked her. She was always there after school if you ever needed any help."

DePalo was charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Star Ledger."---------read more @ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/03/erica-depalo-teacher_n_1852369.html?ncid=webmail1

THey want to put these into the schools in ID too. Shame on them.

Many of you who have read our press release about the Levi Strauss item-level tagging initiative are emailing to request contact information for Levi Strauss. Here it is:

Main Number: (415)501-6000
This number goes to the main switchboard. The operator can switch you to Consumer Relations. Remember. If you call the toll-free Consumer Relations number on the Levi Strauss website, your phone number can be obtained.

Email: info@levi.com
This email address goes to a general email box. Consumer Relations would like you to use a special online form, but that doesn't give you a record of your comment. Please share a copy with us. You can email me at Liz@spychips.com.

Snail mail:
Levi Strauss
Consumer Relations
1155 Battery Street
San Francisco, CA 94111

We are hopeful that Levi Strauss will stop its item-level RFID tagging initiatives and honor the moratorium called for by over 40 of the world's leading privacy and civil liberties organizations. (See: http://www.spychips.com/jointrfid_position_paper.html)

RFID technology can easily be abused, and we believe it is essential that all the societal issues be explored before it is deployed. We hope Levi Strauss will be the company to step forward and begin the needed dialogue.

The current Levi Strauss RFID test reportedly involves RFID hang tags that can be clipped from the garments at checkout. But as anyone who has read "Spychips" knows, the RFID industry has discussed affixing tags on and within products and tracking consumers through them--a practice that could usher in an Orwellian surveillance society. On the clothing front, companies have talked about embedding RFID tags in the seams of garments and in flexible clothing labels. There has even been talk of using threads woven into fabric as antennas.

That's why it is crucial to counter *any* attempts at tagging individual consumer items now. Once the RFID infrastructure is in place, the nature of tagging--and the tracking done via the tags--can change overnight.
