A fine is normally a punishment to discourage behavior, but the police are taxpayer funded. How does fining the taxpayer discourage bad behavior by the police? They need to punish the individuals who screwed up.
You mean like 640KB is all the memory we will ever need?
As I understand it, illegally obtained evidence is inadmissible only if it was illegally obtained by the government or it's agents. If it is obtained by a private party and handed over to the government, then it is admissible. The private party can be criminally charged by the government or sued by the defendant.

Re: Let me get this straight
Nope. The convoy was (allegedly) carrying missiles bound for Shiite Hezbollah militants. Hezbollah are long-time foes of Israel and allies of President Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime.
Re: Marketing gimmick
10% is a pretty big discount, but alas it only works out to be 4%. 1000 coins worth $10 cost $9.60.
With the computer controlling so much of the car and soon even self driving cars, I'm not sure that I want my car connected to any networks where it can pick up some malware. Imagine saying, "Home James!" and find that the car takes you to a store for shopping instead of taking you home.
I can think of plenty. Your average blue collar worker would not be fired as long as they did not miss work before getting bail. People who work with money like bankers or store clerks might get fired, but your average carpenter, plumber, or electrician probably would not.
Lets take it a bit farther
Suppose he had posted it on his own wall where he knew exactly who had access to the post. Suppose further that he had a spat with one of his friends and he/she printed the post and give it to the employer. The post is not public, but it has come to the employers attention through the printout. Would it still be legal to fire him?
What if we are talking about an e-mail between two people?

No way the UK would trade him for the Falklands, but the Argentinians might give him asylum just to twist the lions tail..
Re: Insult to middle class Americans?
What are you talking about? Of course governments tax foreign nationals. I have paid taxes on investment in other countries to those governments, The US has a right to tax any money earned in the US. Of course they have no right to tax foreign income of non-citizens who do not live in the US.
No sign or PIN
This is pretty common here in the states. I haven't signed for gas for years. I assume that it is because they can get your plates on CCTV so they can follow up if the charge is fraudulent. Many merchants don't require a signature if the charge is small. Typically less than $20.

They cannot compel you
I'm pretty sure that they cannot compel you to reveal the location of files or even the existence of the files. It is up to the police to find them once they have the search warrant. If they cannot find them, then they cannot be used against you.
There was a case here in California where a person was ejected from mall for violating the malls speech code. A court ruled that that code was unconstitutional as it violates the customers right of free speech. I am guessing that the reason they cannot bar speech is that while the mall is privately owned, It is open to the public.
True, but ...
If you don't use SMS, you can ask your carrier to block them,
I don't think so...
Remember a human's center of gravity is above the waist. If you run into a waist high barrier at a normal to fast walk, you can go over.
He also coughed to launching a denial of service attack on the University of Akron, the university where he was enrolled at the time of the March 2007 attack.
It appears that he was a student at the time of the attacks, but is not a student now. So the former student reference does make some sense.
