Mo. occurred off camera But the reaction of local police forces in their efforts to calm the civil unrest following his Aug 9 shooting by a Ferguson cop has been documented by hundreds of them Many Americans were surprised by the martial response which had the St Louis suburb looking more like Baghdad or Cairo Some veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq noted that the cops appeared better-armed and outfitted in middle America than the GIs had been in the war zones Most of the gear has come from the Pentagon which has ended up with enormous surpluses of guns radios and armored vehicles following the end of the Iraq war and the winding down of the conflict in Afghanistan Since 1997 some $43 billion has been given to the nation’s police forcesThe US military has long tried to reduce the number of troops it needs to send to war by giving them better and more powerful weapons than potential foes While that logic makes sense on the battlefield where the goal is to kill the enemy it doesn’t translate particularly well on American streets where the goal is to preserve order The photographs above show how police forces have girded for battle over the past half-century The Federal Trade commission reached an agreement Thursday with car maker Nissan to cease “using deceptive demonstrations in advertisements” for its pick up trucks according to a release from the FTC The offending ad as you can see below depicts a Nissan truck rescuing a dune buggy stuck in sand and is filmed in such a way to make it look like an amateur YouTube video: The only problem is that the truck can’t actually do what the ad depicts According to the FTC: “The truck is not capable of pushing the dune buggy up and over the hill and both the truck and the dune buggy were dragged to the top of the hill by cables the hill was made to look significantly steeper than it actually was” Of course Nissan )and the car industry in general) is no stranger to making big claims in advertisements According to Automotive News the top ten car companies spent $625 billion on television ads alone in 2012 Companies must go to great lengths to stand out from the pack The Nissan ad which got the firm in hot water might not even be the most ostentatious spot Nissan has aired of late This ad for example depicts a Nissan truck helping an airplane with malfunction landing gear arrive safely: Nor is Nissan’s run-in with the FTC anything new for the auto industry generally Such ads have been lightning rods for controversy for several decades now Take for instance the 2012 Chevy Silverado ad which light-heartedly claimed that if you choose a Chevy over a Ford you’ll survive the apocalypse: Nobody would take such a claim seriously right Well Ford did It pressured NBC not to run the ad during the Super Bowl claiming that the ad was misleading because Ford has “more trucks on the road with over 250000 miles” than any other brand In 1996 the FTC fined car companies for misleading customers regarding the terms of leasing deals And way back in 1991 the FTC fined Volvo and its ad agency $150000 per fallacious ad it ran which featured a “structurally reinforced Volvo withstanding the weight of an oversized truck rolling over it” while “rival vehicles that appeared in the ad were structurally weakened to be crushed by the truck” according to the Los Angeles Times In the end consumers would be wise to view most car ads with skepticism Unless of course you’re planning on tussling with monster trucks or helping a 747 land safely in the near future Write to Christopher Matthews at [email protected] Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday alleged that the “Presidency has directed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to incarcerate indefinitely” the outgoing governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP Kola Ologbondiyan PDP claimed that the “information at the party’s disposal and all over the social media indicate that the Presidency has put the commission on alert to arrest the governor at midnight today and detain him indefinitely” PDP alleged that the directive by the “Presidency is not unconnected with the plot to use the EFCC and other security agencies to incarcerate the governor owing to his persistent criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government” The statement added “This uncompromising stands of the outgoing governor against the present administration was the reason Ekiti State was invaded and taken by force during the last governorship election “By 12 midnight the governor’s residence is expected to be surrounded by armed men of the EFCC under the pretense that they had information of his plot to escape This is to achieve their plan to humiliate the governor and portray him in bad light to the public by dramatising his arrest “Nigerians can recall that it was the governor who offered to submit himself to the EFCC despite the commission’s clear display of bias and partisanship as demonstrated in its various actions especially its tweets and putting the governor on security watch-list “EFCC even unprofessionally showed its bias in deriding the governor making light of a very serious matter by mocking him and asking him to come before his tenure elapsed which the governor declined in line with the constitutional immunity “It is now beyond dispute that Governor Fayose is not a scoundrel running away from justice Whatever the EFCC APC and the Presidency’s spin-doctors may say it is also clear to everyone that Fayose is not a coward; neither is he afraid of the EFCC “Fayose is prepared and ready to defend himself in the court of law Neither the Presidency nor EFCC is a court of law Since the EFCC said it had dusted up Fayose’s files it should be ready to take him to court once he presents him at the agency’s office on Tuesday “Governor Fayose has offered to walk to the EFCC office by himself and nothing must happen to him tonight The PDP condemns this resort to fascism by the APC government saying the whole world should be at alert to see another demonstration of crude disrespect for the rule of law and rights of Nigerians” The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to get funds for the 2019 general elections The cash is expected to be drawn from a special vote outside the commission’s 2018

by our past schedule for the release of funds for 2011 and 2015 elections “For 2011 elections INEC started drawing down the election budget in 2009 and by 2010 we had received more than 90 per cent of

these materials take six to seven months to procure And if you add due process clause they may require eight months to get “We need to learn from the past Despite the fact that by 2014 INEC had made substantial progress on preparation for the 2015 poll it still asked for a little extension of the timeline” The source said: “Even if we get the election budget we have to work between 8am and 2am daily to put everything in proper shape for the poll “This is why we want to appeal to all those concerned with the release of the funds to assist INEC” “Nigeria’s Miserable Choices”. welcoming the
