Hanford: Leaking Space and Time; Native Lands, Indigenous Roads
From the placid surface of a lake in the woods to Washington DC’s darkened doors, power flows through some fingers but not others. And money changes hands in a shake. The very notion that indigenous , Original Peoples can be cheated out of land is preposterous: you can’t really lose what’s yours from the start. But here we are. The president of the Quinault Indian Nation says the tribe has decided to reopen Lake Quinault to nontribal use under new regulations. The tribe closed the Olympic Peninsula lake last June, citing pollution problems, unsafe activities, invasive species issues and diminished fish runs.

Muslim groups and civil liberties advocates applauded the decision by New York Police Department officials to disband a controversial unit that tracked the daily lives of Muslims as part of efforts to detect terror threats, but said there were concerns about whether other problematic practices remained in place. And there should be concerns. No evidence to back up claims that NYPD's heavy-handed tactics work. And plenty of evidence that tracking the daily lives of anyone in America controls anything. Random acts of volence are - like the weather - more frequent and more extreme.
And even in the aftermath of surveillance, the fall-out from trial and sentencing, there are still wide open avenues to murder in America: Franc Cano and Steven Dean Gordon proved not once, but allegedly twice, that GPS trackers — the electronic leashes worn by 100,000 freed criminals in the U.S. — aren't foolproof. Two years ago, the pair of registered sex offenders cut the monitors from their ankles, hopped a Greyhound bus from California and holed up in a Las Vegas casino hotel until they were captured two weeks later. Released again, they were outfitted with new monitors, but, Orange County prosecutors contend, it didn't stop them from raping and killing at least four women. Investigators said data from the GPS did help them link Cano and Gordon to the killings, and they were charged this week.
