Whether you are a libertarian, conservative, NRA member or simply a citizen concerned with today's political climate, you will find news items of interest and relevance on Reliable Answers "Politics in the News."

What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

The family of an unarmed man shot and killed by Metropolitan Police Department officers have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the department.

Celestine Gibson, the mother of Stanley Gibson, is suing Metro, asking for at least $20 million. Gibson was killed on December 12, 2011 while sitting in his car. He was unarmed. Police say they were called to the Alondra Condominium Complex to investigate a report that two men were trying to break in to a condo. When officers arrived, the suspects had apparently left the area. While officers were taking a report, Gibson pulled into the complex and parked. As police approached his vehicle, he started his car and tried to leave. Police pinned his car, keeping him from leaving the area, and tried to get him out of the vehicle.

A woman from Carbondale claims she suffered emotional and mental distress during an active shooter training exercise she claims she didn't know she was a part of.

Michelle Meeker is suing the Carbondale police chief and an officer. Her employer, the Heritage Park Care Center, where the exercise occurred October 13, 2013, is also listed in the complaint. In a complaint received by 9NEWS Tuesday, Meeker claims she was taken hostage by a man with a gun while at work at the assisted living center in Carbondale. Meeker says the gunman held her against her will while she begged for her life. According to the complaint, what she did not know at the time was that the man with the gun was a Carbondale police officer, and it was all a part of an active shooter drill that was taking place. Meeker claims that she was not informed of the training and suffered severe mental and emotional distress since the incident.

As makeshift "protests" go, the turnout at the state Capitol wasn't too bad considering it was a Friday afternoon and the temperature in the mid-20's.

I knew the turnout wasn't going to be fantastic though when I was able to find a parking spot just a couple of blocks from Capitol (here's a pic taken from where I parked... the "tea party" was on the other side of the building).

Security should always be at the forefront of your mind when developing on the web, and for Ruby and Rails developers that has definitely been the case recently.

Multiple exploitations over the last month have sounded the alarms for anyone that has a Ruby or Ruby on Rails app deployed. How does this affect you? These bugs allow "attackers to bypass authentication systems, inject arbitrary SQL, inject and execute arbitrary code, or perform a DoS attack on a Rails application." To break that down: the attacker will have the full ability to run code on your system. With this security opening, they can now take over your server, and it doesn't stop there.

Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul doesn't seen a rosy future ahead for the United States. In fact, he sees a repeat of recent history - though not U.S. history - on the horizon.

"They're (Washington collectively) not going to work their way out of it, so it's just (all) going to collapse," he said. "Let's just keep working on the fact that, when we get around to rebuilding this whole entire system, that we do it the way it was intended originally, and actually improve upon it."

Selected vaccine authorities from CDC, FDA, and manufacturers discuss, in a closed meeting, the possibility of neurodevelopment disorders resulting from vaccine components.

The CDC published a study in late 2003, repudiating any possible link between thimerosal and developmental problems such as autism, but the CDC did have data supporting such a link which it secretively kept from the public. Documents released through the Freedom of Information Act detail the transcript of a meeting held in June of 2000 between members of the CDC, the FDA, and representatives from the vaccine industry. This top secret meeting was held to discuss a study done by Dr. Thomas Verstraeten and his co-workers using Vaccine Safety Datalink data as a project collaboration between the CDC's National Immunization Program (NIP) and four HMOs. The study examined the records of 110,000 children...

Toledo, Ohio, is in a state of emergency following the discovery of a dangerous cyanotoxin named micrcocystin in the water at the Collin Park water treatment plant, according to The Toledo Blade.

At a news conference, officials with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department said that the level of the cyanotoxin, which is produced by a blue-green algae, is currently at 2.5 ppm. That's twice the allowable level; symptoms triggered by the toxin range from a rash to liver failure. A handful of studies done in China have also tentatively tied the toxin's presence in drinking water to certain types of cancer.

Florida police brutalize woman. Break cheekbone, laugh about it and lie afterward.

This video might piss a few Floridians off, but it's doubtful many would be surprised. Especially any with any experience with law enforcement. Skip ahead to about 8:40, but be forewarned - this is extremely graphic, her screams are loud, and probably not safe for work. This is dashboard footage from a patrol car in Tallahassee, FL showing the arrest of a drunk woman who drove into a house. There were no injuries reported. After allowing the 110-pound woman back out of the car to give her a breathalyzer test, the "police" attempt to re-position her to administer the test. As she drunkenly and feebly pushes against one of the 250-pound officer's shoulders, he shouts "Don't f*cking TOUCH me!"and slams her head down into the cruiser's trunk lid right before pressing down into her head, putting a good deal of his weight on the forearm wedged into her skull.

Most agree, dandelions are a notorious weed. But some recognize that dandelion greens can contribute to a tasty and nutritious meal.

Among the fans of the food is John Taris, a 75-year-old retiree who lives in the Chicago area with his wife on a $1,500-a-month social security payment. When the couple's food supply was a bit low recently, he volunteered to go pick some to provide a vegetable, writes columnist John Kass in the Chicago Tribune (sub. req.). But, caught in the act of picking the weeds by a Cook County Forest Preserve cop, he was issued a $75 ticket. His court date is July 9.

Are cops constitutional? In a 2001 article for the Seton Hall Constitutional Law Journal, the legal scholar and civil liberties activist Roger Roots posed just that question.

Roots, a fairly radical libertarian, believes that the U.S. Constitution doesn't allow for police as they exist today. At the very least, he argues, police departments, powers and practices today violate the document's spirit and intent. "Under the criminal justice model known to the framers, professional police officers were unknown," Roots writes. The founders and their contemporaries would probably have seen even the early-19th-century police forces as a standing army, and a particularly odious one at that. Just before the American Revolution, it wasn't the stationing of British troops in the colonies that irked patriots in Boston and Virginia; it was England's decision to use the troops for everyday law enforcement.
