The 6th floor museum is worth visiting as well.
I probably couldn't make the shot today, I'm out of practice.
"I would say that as compared to other Marines receiving the same type of training, that Oswald was a good shot, somewhat better than or equal to--better than the average let us say. As compared to a civilian who had not received this intensive [military] training, he would be considered as a good to excellent shot."
"Characterizing the four-power scope as 'a real aid, an extreme aid' in rapid fire shooting, Sergeant Zahm expressed the opinion that the shot which struck President Kennedy in the neck at 176.9 to 190.8 feet was 'very easy' and the shot which struck the President in the head at a distance of 265.3 feet was 'an easy shot.'"
Note that Oswald hit 2/3 shots.

Maybe this guy should apply for YC.
This comes off sounding incredibly naive.
This happens every single day, thousands of times over, and there's narly a peep about it.
When you're picked up, and sitting in jail, nobody gives a shit about your medication. When you end up getting a part-time sentence (Come to jail on Friday night, leave on Monday morning for X weeks) for a misdemeanor, nobody gives a shit that you're taking prescription medication for a chronic issue, either.
There's probably more to this story.
It's good to see that you can fight City Hall and that City Hall can be incompetent in their brutality.
I'm sure that would put all of the conspiracy theories to rest!
Seemed like an alright guy. I thanked him for fighting the good fight against government overreach and went on my way.
It also raises question about abuse of power and justice for people who are not rich.

Journalism, especially, local journalism should be supported if we don't want listicles to dominate.
The website isn't subscription based. No need to click on their ad, but no need to actively encourage others to avoid it.

If they buy anything in a state with sales taxes, they pay sales taxes.
If they legally own a car, they pay vehicle taxes. If they buy gas for that car, they pay gas taxes.
Nearly every man, woman, and child in the United States pays taxes.
While continuously suing a person can be considered harassment, a city can ticket a individual indefinately. As long as it's not based on any class-protected issues such as race, religion, ethnicity, etc, the ticket can be for anything.
> a city can ticket a individual indefinately
For breaking the law. That's the point. A ticket, no matter how small, is punishment for a criminal offense.
Knowingly ticketing and arresting the guy is wrong. The fact that it is the judge who repeatedly throws it out means the prosecutors are moving forward with charges.
No, very often citations are given citing part of the civil code, not the criminal code. Just because a court is involved doesn't mean it's a crime.
