300 Arrested At Montreal Protest Against Police Brutality – 16 March 2014

RT logoCanadian police surrounded an annual protest against police brutality in Montreal, arresting 288 people before the demonstration had barely started.

Montreal’s 18th annual protest against police brutality was cut dramatically short Saturday when police rounded up the participants. Minutes into the demonstration, riot officers converged on Jean-Talon Street and began detaining protesters. According to protesters there was a strong police presence, with police horses, cars and a helicopter on the scene.

ZeroHedge – BofA Warns: VIX Spells Trouble – 16 March 2014

ZeroHedgeMarkets are showing increased signs of investor anxiety, warns BofA’s Macneil Curry. The Friday breakout in the VIX Index says that this anxiety will likely persist into next week. Indeed, Curry adds, the VIX has based from its highest levels in over a year suggesting that investors are more susceptible to bad news and defensive behavior than at any time in the past 12 months. Several markets look particularly susceptible to this change in sentiment.

From an equity perspective, the Nikkei stands out. Its breakdown from 5 week Flag support says its medium term downtrend has resumed, targeting last summer’s range lows between 12,400/13,400.

In FX, the Japanese ¥ is particularly well placed to benefit. The bearish weekly reversal in $/¥ and close through 101.40 says it is resuming its medium term downtrend for 99.06 and eventually the 92/94 area. Finally, regardless of the larger outlook for risk assets stay bearish CNH.

ActivistPost – Melissa Melton – Dear Gun Controllers: Pharmaceutical Drugs Kill More People Than Bullets – 16 March 2014

Logo_activistpost-comThe hype has it that gun violence is so epidemic, it has left a trail of death so vast, only broad restrictions on legal gun ownership and limits on magazine rounds could possibly end it.

Forget the fact that the crime stats in this country don’t support this assertion. Also forget the fact that crimes are perpetrated by criminals, and it follows that criminals are such because they do not follow laws…no matter how many new ones are passed each year.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 31,672 people died from firearm injuries in America in 2010. While that sounds like a lot, it should be noted that the majority — 61.2% — were suicides, not mass shootings or individual murders.

I had much illness and suffered a great deal from worries, fears, anxieties and bodily pain in my life. But at the moment of death there was no pain.” (1) Continue reading
