If you're reading this, then you weren't for the War in Iraq. You protested, probably got arrested, sat in that filthy jail for four days while the cops mocked your beliefs, made lewd comments about your wife, called you a hippie because that's all they got in well-developed intellect of American authoritah. It is the sign of a sick country when the people worship authority. Cops are heroes. All soldiers are great. Even corporate CEO's are seen as having some kind of tribal wisdom. The optionless crucifixion is the real American religion. Everyday we climb up on the cross of capitalism and say there ain't nuthin we can do. Eli eli lama sabacthani with two cheeseburgers and a coke. Chevy Truck staring at god. I'll get there someday cuz the lord jesus christ is my savior. I can do anything because I an American and we is saved. Do you accept? And meanwhile you're sitting on the goddamn train, or bus, or some increasingly disappearing public place where they have the temerity to come up to you and preach the word. The subtext of it all is that they are the real Americans. They are the ones who hold this country together despite Obamacare. They are the ones who work despite the lazy blacks, illegals and spoiled kids like you who never worked for nothing but just bitch all the time. And you sit quiet, digging the Buddhism you been reading about, saying to yourself like a mantra that it’s still America, land of a revolution where people like you fought and died for the human ideals that you are watching slip away.
Pittsburgh's New Police Chief Cameron Mclay greets members of the media and outlines a plan to restore honor, integrity, and accountability to the police department as well as restore the public's trust.
Andrew Miller received a very light sentence by Judge Todd earlier this after noon. 7 years of probation with 9 months in a work release program, register and report as a sex offender for the next 15 years, and enter into a sexual predator treatment program.
Miller lost yet another job when his latest employers found out about his antics on September 5th, and his computer prgramming career is over per judge Todd's ruling that he is not allowed to posess or go anywhere near a computer during his 7 years of probation.
Two of Miller's victims read statements to the Judge before his decision asking for the maximum penalties allowed by law. One victim's letter told the court " That she lives in constant fear of Miller, and is very unsettled that he lives in her community."
Before his sentence, Miller rambled a half assed and incoherent apology to the court for his behavior.
"Mr. Miller, You have a wife and kids, you wouldn;t want someone sexually stalking them would you? I don't know what is wrong with you, but you have caused alot of damage to these women. If you violate the terms of this probation in any way, I will lock you up, not in the county jail, but in a penitentiary."
Miller showed no remorse for his actions and once again could not look his victims in the eye.

The Following Statement was released minutes ago regarding this June 2014 incident. When asked for copies of these reports, pictures and videos, I was told the reports are not going to be released and are for OMI (internalt affairs) use only. Ariel Lawther, the woman arrested and assaulted by the officer declined comment but referred me to her lawyer who was unavailable when I called. (Left a message)
STATEMENT BY CITY SOLICITOR LOURDES SANCHEZ-RIDGE ON FINDINGS IN PRIDEFEST PARADE ARREST
PITTSBURGH, PA - “The city promised a fair and thorough investigation of a June 15arrest at the PrideFest parade. That investigation is now completed, and a final report by the Office of Municipal Investigations, including an analysis completed by an independent consultant, has determined that the officer involved did not use excessive force.
This administration is dedicated to objectivity, and objective reviews of the entirety of the evidence may not always reveal what one video, one photograph, or one statement might reveal alone. While OMI exonerated the officer in this case, it also obtained an independent third-party use of force review by an outside agency that arrived at the same conclusion. It will be city policy from this point forward to seek third-party analysis in all excessive force investigations, just as we did in this case.
Under city law, it is the responsibility of OMI to investigate allegations of employee misconduct, including allegations of police misconduct, and provide the results of their investigations to city leaders.

Completing the Summer of concert series as a token of appreciation for my followers/readers/listeners/donor (etc), The Gathering Field reunited for our final free show at Buckhead's Saloon In Pittsburgh, Pa to perform some of their legendary 90's songs as well as new material from their new album, Wild Journey available September 30, 2014.
In this video, a man commits suicide by cop in Riverview, Mo about 15 minutes away from Ferguson, Mo.
The man supposedly was mentally unstable and had just stolen 2 cans or bottles of soda from a store.
In the video, the man doesn't have a gun AND begs police to kill him. POLICE SAY THE MAN PULLES A KNIFE OUT OF HIS RIGHT HOODIE POCKET AND KEPT WALKING TOWARDS THEM WHEN THEY OPENED FIRE.
The video is hard to tell if he did have a knife or not.
He was shot 9 times
