News quikies of the day - 4/23

FCC says 'Screw It' on Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality is saying everyone get equal speed an access on all internet networks.  The FCC was holding tight to this idea.  That was until some courts said that Time Warner and Comcast can do whatever they want on their networks.  They don't have monopoly on the market and people can go elsewhere if they want a different internet experience.

My Opinion: The FCC was getting black eye and offending heavy contributors to the Democratic party and had to back down on this policy.  BTW: whatever happened to that free wireless network the FCC was going to build from the open bandwidth from the sale of analog TV channels?

Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Allegedly Planted Guns at a Pot Store

There is evidence that LA Sheriffs planted weapons jsut so that they could raid a pot dispensary.

My Opinion: I think marijuana should be legal.  But it needs tighter controls then what it has now.  Things are way to loose.  And I can see why law enforcement is frustrated because federally its illegal but at the state level it is legal.

But two wrongs don't make a right.  Also this isn't LA Sheriffs have been under a federal investigation.  I think all federal funds should be suspended to this department until either they officers do a full confession or the matter is fully investigated.

I was hoping to do another one tonight but I'm tired.
