Terror Detainee and Defense Program Policies C-Span

Various Senators spoke on an amendment offered by Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) to S. 1867, a bill dealing with Defense programs and policy, including terror detainee policy. Senator Udall’s amendment would have stricken language from the bill allowing for indefinite detention of some terrorism suspects. The amendment failed by a vote of 37-61.


Full Text of the Udall Detainee Amendment
Senate Amendment #1107. Mr. UDALL of Colorado submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 1867, to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2012 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes; as follows:
Strike subtitle D of title X and insert the following:

      (section 1031 wasn’t there or I would have posted that too)
I stand by what I said in the post I did about C-Span and our elected officials once again.  As important as this bill is to The Citizens of the United States of America.  Once again it doesn’t seem like there are that many elected officials present.  I wonder how many voted without reading this bill?  shera~

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
