U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- On 20 August 2015, in Brevard County, Florida, John DeRossett, 55, shot and severely wounded a Brevard County sheriff’s deputy.…
Police claimed they told the niece they were police officers as they grabbed her. She called 911 during or immediately after the firefight, and told the dispatcher she did not know who the men who grabbed her were.
The deputies had no warrant to arrest Mary Ellis.
Criminals often claim to be police to attempt to get compliance. The deputies never told DeRossett they were police.
Why would he be under obligation to believe them, unless they presented credentials or other convincing proof they were operating under lawful authority?
DeRossett was held in jail for nearly five years.
In August of 2018, at trial, his lawyer presented the defense that he was protected by the “Stand Your Ground” law. The local court found against him, saying that he knew, or should have known, the people he was shooting at were law enforcement officers.
He appealed to the federal Fifth Circuit Court of appeals in 2019.
John DeRossett spent nearly five years in jail, for defending his niece against attackers who did not identify themselves as police.
John DeRossett is a free man today. He is alive. There was a time, when many assumed anyone, justified or not, who shot a police officer, would be killed by police. That is not true. It is less true today than it used to be.
In Houston, police officers have been charged with felony murder in the deaths of an innocent couple. The husband dared to protect his wife and dog against an unannounced home invasion. The couple were killed, but the officers are being held accountable.
Mistakes occur. Error is piled onto error.
The world is not perfect.
Why, with the evidence, which was plain from the start, was John DeRossett locked up for nearly five years, when he was a homeowner, retired, who had no previous criminal record?
Will there be a civil suit against Brevard County?
The study, conducted by a team of scientists at Macquarie University, used 100 samples of honey sourced globally, including 38 Australian-branded honey samples.
It found more than half the samples sourced from Asia, mainly China, were adulterated, meaning the honey had been mixed with other non-honey substances.
Testing at the National Measurement Institute, the same high-security government lab used to test drugs seized by Border Force, found 27 per cent of overseas samples were not 100 per cent honey.

… Four types of levers that policy makers can pull to bring debt and debt service levels down relative to income/cash flow that are required to service them.
- Austerity(i.e. spending less)
- Debt Default/Restructure
- Central Bank Printing Money and making purchases/guarantees
- Transfer money/credit from those who have more than they need to those who has less.

(Brandon Smith) There are a multitude of false assumptions out there on what the collapse of a nation or “empire” looks like. Modern day Americans have never experienced this type of event, only peripheral crises and crashes. Thanks to Hollywood, many in the public are under the delusion that a collapse is an overnight affair. […]
