College Student Arrested without Cause, Sent to Hospital, and Then Charged for the Trip

Anne Publicover, a Dalhousie University student, appears to have been arrested for possession of a rodent with intent to pet. Publicover was merely standing before a ban in Halifax when an officer approached her to ask why she was wearing a hoddie and scarf — and carrying a rabbit and a rat. While she explained that it was winter and these were her pets, the officer still arrested her and sent her involuntarily for observation. To make matters worse, Publicover was charged for the transport.

Despite her explanation the officer persisted and asked her whether she was “in psychosis.” He then called for an ambulance, asking ” Well, do you really think it’s normal to be (walking) around with a rabbit in your book bag and a rat in your sweater?”She ended up in custody as did her baby rat, Vincent, and Mr. Bunny Rabbit.

  1. Impeachment vs. Outsourcing the VP

    and so we as a nation collectively and individually are asking ourselves how then could the governmnet proceed right in the face of massive illegality.

    the new attorney general when present in congressional hearings, though defensive and guarded, had an air of legaility about him as if though it was somehow by the book, but utterly shocking to the american public at large.

    which arises the major legal questions:

    has outsourcing as a policy been transformed to mean something else entirely.

    what is in question, which is of national importance, is if the Department of Homeland Security is in fact an outsourced operation and not part of the department of defense and or the executive branch.

    you’ll remember that the vice president himself stated on the record that his office (sic and unforgiveable) is (sic) not part of the executive branch of government.

    the government, nay the White House, has changed the chairs on the main deck of the good ship USA.

    Now, if Dept. of Homeland Security is like Blackwater, an outsourced operation, it might in fact follow the legal precendence (David Swanson that word again, the P word) of the institution of the Federal Reserve which is in fact not a part of the Federal Government nor the Department of the Treasury.

    The question for america is this, since the Nixon era, has political forces in this nation contrived to outsource whatever was expedient to get their hands on and therefore the difficulty of impeachment is that the parties have manuevered around the US constitution in a momentous LEGAL manner. Legal until the light of day that is.

    not only that: have they outsourced the Vice President of the USA

    you will have noticed in the news that private corporations have been incorporated most recently in the FBI. They have been granted liscence to kill.

    What we have as a result is this: departments at large within the seeming framework of Washington D.C. which are as a whole in fact outside the Government of the USA.

    Furthermore as years go by, is the American Public in fact accounting for which face is the actual government department or to which face is the Corporate outsourced non government outlet.

    these are the questions of liberty

    in other words: has shadow government outsourced services, hired them and authorized them by the federal government, then gave the newcomer the functionary responsibilities and RETIRED THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT of its own responsibilities.

    Advantage: actions not part of federal government nor accountable to the US Constitution nor to the American People. Somebody get Karl Rove into a Congressional Hearing PRONTO EXPEDIENT BY FEDERAL ORDER.

    It is recommended that each state of the union to account for every department it lists in its accounting to its own Governor. Determination should be made and notarized that all said departments are in fact legal branches of state government.

    Impeachment is a notable patriotic american imperative.

    The US founding fathers it seems have been outsourced.

    And no one seemed to have noticed this.


  2. And this police officer had the “qualifications” to judge her mental state…how, exactly? Did he also have a medical degree, not to mention a license to practice medicine, to make such a determination as to what is “normal?” My guess, the answer is NO. So he put her under arrest and forced her into an ambulance based on nothing more than his over-inflated opinion. What complete arrogance. Personally, I think HE should have to foot the bill on this unnecessary ambulance ride, but I know that’s never going to happen.
