Non-Defense Aid to Pakistan should End, U.S. Congress

The U.S. House of Representatives joined the Senate recently to ask fora halting of the U.S. economic assistance to Pakistan while Trump administration has already halted its military assistance to Pakistan. A bill was introduced in the House saying the non-defense assistance to Pakistan should now be put to an end and the money set aside for this purpose should be spent on infrastructure projects in the United States. The reason behind this approval as provided by the movers is, “Pakistan provides military and intelligence aid to terrorists”, a charge that Pakistan strongly denies. On its defense, Pakistan claims that the U.S is just blaming their country as they themselves fail to hide their failure in Afghanistan where they tried to initiate an insurgency. The Congressmen Mark Sanford from South Carolina and Thomas Massie from Kentucky seeks to prohibit the US State Department and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) from sending American taxpayer money to Pakistan. Instead, they ask for these funds to be invested in Highway Projects and road infrastructures in the U.S. It seems like the Congressmen are offended to know that their money is being used to award the terrorist whereas it can be used to some great State’s developing projects. Most of the people in Senator agreed with the legislation to bring back the money home instead of spending it on a nation who burns their flag and imprison a doctor who helped them finding Osama. Instead, the money can be invested in Highway Trust Fund for which the money falls short by $111 billion by 2026. It completely makes sense. The current...

A New Impaired Driving Campaign by Weyburn Police

Drinking and driving has been reported as being one of continuous problems in Saskatchewan Canada, but now Weyburn Police is attempting to take new steps by offering free taxi rides. An initiative to curb Drunk Driving in Weyburn, Saskatchewan is hoping to minimize the chances of alcohol related car accidents by offering free voucher rides. They believe people would like to take more advantage of these free and safe rides to drive them home instead of driving themselves. It might change the culture of impaired driving and tackle with drinking and driving problems all through Sask. They named the campaign as “This Ride’s on Us” to get maximum of the residents to ride with them instead of getting drunk and getting into various car accidents. According to the plan, the patrons who think that they had too much can leave their keys with the bar staff and can get the free driving vouchers to get home. They can pick up their keys at Weyburn Police Station next day. “Since 2017, we have seen a gradual increase in impaired driving and according to an estimate it has raised by 22%. So, we are trying something different or perhaps implementing to reduce the risks of impaired driving as much as we can”, said Weyburn police chief Marlo Pritchard. The campaign is not about drinking at all but not drinking while driving. As most of the impaired driving cases led to some dreadful car wrecks and several deaths too. The program is expected to get most of the keys to the bar or rather people will take care while driving,...

Troubling Pattern in Syria

There were reports of several Chemical attacks on Syria, reported recently. The victims that appear to be effected by Chlorine gas were taken to the hospital. The ambassador of United States Nikki Haley said to the United Nations, “Few things have horrified my country and the world as well of chemical weapons against these people”. She asked for stopping the use of all the chemical weapons on innocent people immediately and stop the bloodshed. She says, “Our goal must be to end the use of these evil, unjustifiable weapons”. She not only demanded the abandoning of these harmful weapons but destroying them all under supervision. It seems like no council of the world is ready to take some action against these chemical attacks. There are multiple assaults reported on Syrian people from weeks including just yesterday. There are dozens of victims who can report the obvious incidence multiple times. There must be a security council press statement condemning these attacks. So far, Russia has delayed the adoption of any statement. Russia must take appropriate step to stop the suffocation of Syrian children by the chlorine gas and the chemical attacks by condemning these attacks, at least. Though accountability is the first basic step in raising voice against this act of atrocity there should be an end to these now. We can only come close to our goals when the actions will have consequences, traitors will be punished. But if we, as a community can’t take even the initial step of accountability of these chemical weapons, we seriously need to ask ourselves “why we are here”? Until or unless the...

How does the Fourth Amendment affect a drunk driving case?

Under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and under state established arrangements, one has the right to be secured in their persons, papers and effects. When police or law enforcement has administered a compulsory blood test, especially without a warrant, then there may be Fourth Amendment issues present such as those involving searches and seizures. If you or a family member have been recently arrested or charged with driving while intoxicated and were compelled to give a blood test without your consent, contact a drunk driving defense attorney to talk about your case. This foundation all ends up noticeably significant to the Court’s decision when we swing to the alcoholic driving capture situation. Normally, such a capture happens when police watch an example of driving that proposes inebriation, including weaving or other, showed ineptitude in the driver’s seat. In light of their perceptions of such driving, which add up to “sensible doubt” of DWI, police may pull over or briefly “stop” the alcoholic driving suspect for advance examination. At this stage, police may ask the speculate questions, investigate the presumes eyes (for indications of inebriation), sniff at the air close to the suspect (for the stink of liquor), and maybe request that the presume walk a straight line or generally show the kind of coordination that most calm individuals display. The officer may likewise request that the speculate take a breathalyzer test. In the event that the speculates conduct, appearance, aroma, as well as breathalyzer, comes about (or the refusal to take a breathalyzer test) offer ascent to reasonable justification to trust that the driver is inebriated, at...
