“So we do live in a jackboot society.”

My annual birthday-month fund-raising drive for Behind the Black is now on-going. Not only do your donations help pay my bills, they give me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to
Behind The Black
c/o Robert Zimmerman
P.O.Box 1262
Cortaro, AZ 85652


You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

“So we do live in a jackboot society.”

The video, also below the fold, is long but worth watching to the end. It will send chills up your spine. You will also never want to visit Electra, Texas.

    Indeed I think we are getting there. On Autoblog there is a really good article about a man in NM, that was arrested and physically assaulted by a medical center, http://www.autoblog.com/2014/02/25/traffic-stop-anal-probe-civil-rights-violations-video/ where he won a 1.6 million dollar judgment against the sheriffs department, and then the incident involving vaginal cavity searches of two women in Texas on the side of the road by a female officer, these stories just keep coming along. I think that it may be a very tough job to be in law enforcement, especially in the southern tier states joining Mexico, but there is no justification for these kinds of actions that seem to be motivated by federal dollars. in the traffic stop that is in this video, it was not even a traffic stop, these two officers were outright rude to this couple, where has the civility gone, why is not the ACLU and the courts more assertive in these manners?
