1) Message boards : Politics : DNR (Message 1784318)
Posted 11 hours ago by Profile CLYDEProject donor
In the USA only the patient or a court order can put a DNR on the chart.

Absolutely true.

All, if they wish DNR, must have a Living Will.

Thanks Gordan for providing a template.

Note: All in my family have one. Both my mother and father had one. The Hospital needed to see the Living Will for my Mother, who was not conscious, but apparently in pain.

VERY IMPORTANT: Where is your Living Will?

In my mother's case. Before the Hospital could 'unplug' her. They had to see her Living Will. It was a Sunday, and was in her Unavailable Safe Deposit Box.

I, thankfully, had a copy at my home. Retrieved it. Gave it to the Hospital. And my 91 year old mother 'passed away' that day.

3) Message boards : Politics : Donald Trump for President? (Message 1784305)
Posted 12 hours ago by Profile CLYDEProject donor
Something to ponder:

Last week, Rasmussen Reports gave voters the option of staying home on Election Day if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the big party nominees, and six percent (6%) said that’s what they intend to do for now. Clinton and Trump were tied with 38% support each; 16% said they would vote for some other candidate, and two percent (2%) were undecided.

But Trump edges slightly ahead if the stay-at-home option is removed. Trump also now does twice as well among Democrats as Clinton does among Republicans.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 41% support to Clinton’s 39%. Fifteen percent (15%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

The 'Stay-at-Home' were supposed to be Cruz Supporters, according to the 'Experts'. If Trump won the nomination.

This Election may be a surprise.

Perhaps another Carter - Reagan result.

A safe is one thing as many could have the combination, but a cellphone not belonging to an indivudual but someone else? How would her fingerprint unlock it?

Apparently 'The Owner' gave permission/authority.

Should make it easier for the FBI to get a Court Order.


Assuming: 'Someone else' owned the phone (Paid for it, phone service in their name, so on):
They may have wanted her to use it for a bit. (Like several people all using the same landline, even though it's only in one person's name).

BUT, if the authorities know that one particular person can unlock a given phone (pin, fingerprint, ...), then it wouldn't matter. Just can they get that court order saying "open this up for us".

Been There - Done That

The Judge may have a 'Bad Day'. The Prosecutor may not really care. The FBI's Special Agent in charge of the investigation may be..., etc.

Nothing is assured in our Criminal Justice System.

Note: Having worked closely with the FBI many years ago. I found them to be a very professional organization. But they have their limitations. As all Human Endeavors do.

First of May Day rally in Sevastopol on Crimea in true Soviet style today.

Oh... Now I remember.

I cannot speak regarding British Justice. Only USA, specifically NYPD Investigations.

If I was the Lead Investigator, regarding any crime. And the ONLY evidence was He Said - He Said.

The most serious allegation was proven false. AND there was an attempt for economic gain by the accuser:

I would probably recommend to the Prosecutors Office, with my Superiors Authorization:

Not Proceeding.

Been There - Done That.

The 51 States have nothing to do with it. The receipt clearly shows he was in the USA rather than the UK. Can't you see that fact?

It shows his credit card was in the USA, if that is in fact his account and not someone with the same name or the entire thing a forgery. His passport should have some entry and exit stamps if he did some travel, and there should be some records of that somewhere. Sounds to me like his barrister did the normal splendid job of ensuring a conviction, just like the public defender in the USA.

Wouldn't all that have been brought up, during the trial?

And if true. Why a trial?

Can't speak for the States, but here, effective policing, stringent oversight of the CPS (atm, too many Mickey Mouse cases being dealt with wasting taxpayers money), tougher rules for defence/prosecution enabling ALL evidence on the table before the actual case hearing.

In Jonathon King's case, both defence & prosecution prosecuted for their faillngs in the case. That would ensure that all sides in cases have all the facts to present to judges & juries.

You are speaking of what may happen in the future. When the Social Media (AKA The Mob) has moved on to other things.

In our 'Modern' Times'. When Police Forces are confronted with 'Arrest, or we will destroy you' - Activists, Politicians, etc.

What do Human Beings do, to protect themselves?

What The Judge and Prosecutors did. Is another matter.

Maybe, but just like what has recently been reported here in the UK, that's lazy policing.

Mere speculation.

However... Speculation is interesting.

Not here though, it has been proven.

Much, much, much, more, may involved.

This case, as many others. May just a Police Force reacting to the present 'Mob Mentality' permeating our Culture.

Of course they shouldn't. But they are just Human Beings. Protecting their Careers, and Jobs, against 'certain' forces.

Nothing at all to do with any of your States & their legal systems but the UK's. Don't you get it yet? It's a UK case with proof that it was impossible for him to bugger a junkie here at that time...

...unless he was Mr Fantastic himself :-)

Sorry...

We were apparently debating Apples and Oranges.

The problem with Sexual Assault/Rape Allegations, in our present Culture.

Is this belief, as Former Secretary of State Clinton recently promoted:

That one MUST believe the accuser.

This does not only apply to teachers (many exonerated). But to men, in general. Many on whom, are also innocent.

We are degenerating into a Mob Culture of BURN THEM AT THE STAKE.

Or in 'Modern' Times: Arrest, Loss of Job, Possible Loss of any Future Employment (Just google the name), Destruction of Personal Life, etc.

Where in many cases. The person is innocent.

Here is the Real Problem:

How do we insure the Punishment of The Guilty. Without Destroying The Lives of The Innocent?

The 51 States have nothing to do with it. The receipt clearly shows he was in the USA rather than the UK. Can't you see that fact?

50 (fifty) different State Laws, Judiciary, and more than 50 (fifty) Law Enforcement Cultures.

1 (one) Federal Law, Judiciary, and Law Enforcement Culture.

What one of these 51 (fifty one) Separate Entities do.

May have no bearing upon the other 50 (fifty).

Barn door wide open

"France and Germany have proposed a new 'emergency brake' that could suspend visa-free travel for countries that no longer meet the specific criteria. But commission officials have indicated that idea has been rejected."

Bet that won't go down well in Paris or Berlin.

Unless 'The Problem' is dealt with very soon.

The 'Reaction' will be worse.

That may be the case, but wouldn't it be better to wait until more is known without having to resort to assumptions?

We don't matter in this situation.

Only the Authorities, Judiciary, and Attorneys, matter.

However... Speculation is interesting.

Haven't to contend with the justice system withholding evidence makes matter even more difficult...

Evidence withheld

...if they're anything like the commenters on the article, can understand the despair...

..so what if Clearwater Florida is not New York, the point is that he was in the US at that time not buggering some junkie in the UK.

The USA has 51 Different Justice Systems.

One, or more of them. May have no relevance to the others.

Think of The EU, on Steroids.

Are you sure you read the whole report?

"Why authorities wanted Bkhchadzhyan to unlock the phone is unclear."

The authorities may know why. And if so...

Releasing that information to the public. May compromise the investigation.

LOS ANGELES — As the world watched the FBI spar with Apple this winter in an attempt to hack into a San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, federal officials were waging a different encryption battle in a Los Angeles courtroom.

There, authorities obtained a search warrant compelling the girlfriend of an alleged Armenian gang member to press her finger against an iPhone that had been seized from a Glendale, Calif., home. The phone contained Apple’s fingerprint identification system for unlocking, and prosecutors wanted access to the data inside it.

In this new Age.

Possibly the same as knowing a safe's combination.

If the FBI, or any other Law Enforcement Agency, get a Judge's Order to provide the Combination/Swipe Finger. And the person refuses:

Possible Contempt of Court Ruling. And the person stays is Jail, until the Combination/Swipe Finger is provided.

In real life: Jail Time would be for a period, of perhaps months. If a continuing refusal to comply with the Order: A Release, after the Judge's admonishment.

& if not her phone?

Good question.

In the Past: Knowledge of the Safe's Combination, even if the person did not 'own' the Safe. Was sufficient for the Judge to Issue an Order. If he/she wished.

Today? Cell Phone? Possibly.
