False arrest lawsuit closer to trial: Cop blocks your driveway. You tell him to move. He doesn’t. You beep. He arrest you.

EMMINENT DOMAIN DONE RIGHT: Brazil Voids Merck Patent On AIDS Drug. Humans with aids say “fuck you” to capitalist companies that use profit as a means of forcing people who can’t afford drugs to die. Go Brazil. Go humanity. This is piracy done right.
