Activist critical of police undergoes use of force scenarios

Every person on this site who says that the police are *never* justified in shooting an unarmed person need to watch this video, then leave a comment.

Classification markings (specifically paragraph (portion) markings))

WAIVERS INVOLVING MARKING OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. Only the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office ( ISOO) may grant waivers to the marking requirements specified by References (d) and (f) for classified information. Any portion marking waiver approved will be temporary and will have specific expiration dates. Administrative burden alone will ordinarily not be viewed as sufficient grounds to support a waiver.

All classified information shall be identified clearly by marking, designation, or electronic labeling. If physical marking of the medium containing classified information is not possible, then identification must be accomplished by other means. The term “marking” includes other concepts of identifying the classification of the information. Markings, designations, and electronic labeling shall be conspicuous and immediately apparent

Just for clarification, Hillary Clinton was an Original Classification Authority (OCA) for documents originated within the Department of State. As such, she was REQUIRED to receive training on classification methods and marking. See below for a letter that describes this required training. This letter (Memorandum) has three portion markings One (U) unclassified and two classified at the Secret (S) level. I'm positive that ANYONE reading this will understand which paragraphs are classified at what level.

"I don't remember, or I thought those referred to paragraph numbering" is an outright LIE.

To indicate the appropriate classification level, the symbols ‘‘(TS)’’ for Top Secret, ‘‘(S)’’ for Secret, and ‘‘(C)’’ for Confidential shall be used (see Figure 2). Portions which do not meet the standards for classification shall be marked with “(U)” for Unclassified.

SUBJECT: (U) Delegation of SECRET Original Classification Authority (OCA)

(U) You are hereby delegated authority to classify information up to SECRET for
information under your area of responsibility in accordance with Executive Order 13526,
“Classified National Security Information” (the Order).

(S//REL) As an OCA you are required to receive training in original classification as
provided by the Order and implementing directives prior to you exercising this authority.
Your Security Manager will facilitate this training.

(S//REL) The Order also provides that OCAs shall prepare classification guides to
facilitate the proper uniform derivative classification of information. Request that you
provide a copy of your guide(s) to this office by December 31, 2009.

Melania Trump sues Daily Mail over reports that she worked for escort service;

Daily Mail issues retraction

I love the last part. It reminds me of Dan Rather's untrue, but accurate. Sure, Dan.

Melania Trump is suing the Daily Mail and Maryland-based blog Tarpley for $150 million, claiming defamation related to reports that she once worked for an escort service.

Trump, represented by Hulk Hogan’s former lawyer Charles Harder, threatened last week to sue several news organizations over the reports. The first to publish the allegation was Slovenian outlet Suzy magazine, which the Daily Mail cited.

Harder’s statement reads: "These defendants made several statements about Mrs. Trump that are 100% false and tremendously damaging to her personal and professional reputation.”

Tarpley retracted its report last week after being threatened with the lawsuit. After Trump filed her lawsuit Thursday, The Daily Mail retracted its original report, saying, "The Daily Mail newspaper article stated that there was no support for the allegations ... The point of the article was that these allegations could impact the U.S. presidential election even if they are untrue."
