POLICE STATE ON STEROIDS:

7 UNDERCOVER COPS WITH GUNS ARREST FEMALE COLLEGE STUDENT FOR POSSESSION OF BOTTLED WATER

Armed agents of Virginia’s Alcoholic Beverage Control agency (6 men and 1 woman, all in plain clothes) surrounded three female college students as one of the students was walking to her car after purchasing some bottled water at about 10:15 p.m. on 11 April. One agent jumped on the hood of the car; another agent drew a gun. Reportedly, the agents suspected the bottled water was actually beer.

Unsure of who the agents were, the women tried to flee the dark parking lot. The women called 911 as they left the parking lot, planning to drive to a police station. The driver was arrested and spent the night in jail. She was charged with three felonies; today prosecutors dropped the charges.

TEENAGER JAILED SINCE MARCH FOR MAKING A JOKE DURING AN ON-LINE VIDEO GAME

(NOW IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT (NAKED) FOR "PROTECTION"; BEATEN WHILE IN PRISON)

America’s thought police are keeping you safe from teenagers who make jokes. The teen in this case, made an online comment – which he identified as a joke, using the common abbreviation “JK” for “just kidding.” Already jailed since March, he could face 8 years for making a terrorist threat.

If you don’t think America’s police state government has gone off the rails, you’re a moron.

Yet another example of the fact that many of the people who become cops are exactly the type of people who should not be cops.

AMERICA'S BRAVE DRUG WARRIORS:

LEAD ASSAULT ON 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL IN HER OWN HOME
(WHERE NO CRIMES WERE BEING COMMITTED)

Billings, Montana police say the 6 am raid they conducted in October 2012 was part of an investigation into a suspected meth lab. But there was no meth lab. And the 12-year-old daughter of Jackie Fasching suffered severe burns after the SWAT team used a broomstick to drop a flash grenade through a window into a bedroom where the girl and her sister were sleeping.

“A simple knock on the door and I would’ve let them in,”[Ms. Fasching] said.“They said their intel told them there was a meth lab at our house. If they would’ve checked, they would’ve known there’s not.” Fasching’s husband, who suffers from congenital heart disease and liver failure, was in fact attempting to open the door to let the cops in just as they knocked it down.

As for the flash grenade, Fasching said it “blew the nails out of the drywall.” There’s also the matter of why, if they were looking for a meth lab, the police would have set off flash grenades in the first place. Meth labs are known to explode.

OOPS. WRONG HOME:

FEDERAL APELLATE COURT---IT IS NOT OK TO HOLD 11 AND 14 YEAR OLD GIRLS AT GUNPOINT
(EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT BE FUN FOR THE AGENTS)

DEA agents raided a mobile home in Seeley, California at 7 am on January 20, 2007 in search of a drug trafficker. After handcuffing the couple who lived there – and their two daughters – and holding them at gunpoint for half an hour while they ransacked their home, the agents realized they had the wrong address, and left.

The apellate court agreed with the jury that cops really shouldn’t point their guns at the head of an 11-year-old girl while she’s laying handcuffed on the floor of her home.

CAMERAS CATCH BREAK IN AT LAW OFFICE REPRESENTING WHISTLEBLOWER IN STATE DEPARTMENT CASE

Last weekend burglars stole computers and broke into file cabinets at a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistle-blower. Other valuable items were left untouched; no other office suites in the high-rise building were burglarized.

“The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and its contractors ranging from illicit drug use, soliciting sexual favors from minors and prostitutes and sexual harassment.”

SENATE TO CONFIRM NEW FBI DIRECTOR:
OK'S WATERBOARDING, DEFENDS MASS SPYING AND INDEFINITE DETENTION

Well, for more on the nomination of James Comey, we’re joined now by former FBI special agent Coleen Rowley. She was with the FBI from 1981 to 2004. She was a division legal counsel for 13 years and taught constitutional rights to FBI agents and police. In 2002, Time magazine named her and two other women whistleblowers as _Time_’s "Person of the Year" after she testified before Congress about the FBI’s failure to help prevent the 9/11 attacks. Her latest article, "Questions for the FBI Nominee," appeared in The New York Times.

SENATOR FRANK CHURCH ON THE DANGERS OF THE NSA

Even among US Senators, virtually nothing was known at the time about the National Security Agency. The Beltway joke was that "NSA" stood for "no such agency". Upon completing his investigation, Church was so shocked to learn what he had discovered - the massive and awesome spying capabilities constructed by the US government with no transparency or accountability - that he issued the following warning, as reported by the New York Times, using language strikingly stark for such a mainstream US politician when speaking about his own government:

"'That capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide.'

"He added that if a dictator ever took over, the NSA 'could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.'"

FBI: ORGANIZED CRIME

The public's missing something more valuable than mob drama: "This trial is not just about organized crime," writes the Boston Herald's Margery Eagan, it involves "the corruption of the federal government — the same government banning you from this trial — in the form of a disgraced FBI. It's a civics lesson worthy of us all."

Indeed, from 1975 to 1990, in its quest to bring down the Italian mob, the FBI's Boston office became partner in crime to Bulger's "Winter Hill Gang." A 2004 House Committee on Government Reform report, "Everything Secret Degenerates," found that "a number of men were murdered because they came to the government with information incriminating informants" and the FBI tipped them off.

JOURNALIST WHO EXPOSED DOJs DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN COULD GET 105 YEARS IN PRISON

“…one might think that what we are looking at is Cointelpro 2.0—an outsourced surveillance state—but in fact it’s worse. One can’t help but infer that the US Department of Justice has become just another security contractor, working alongside the HBGarys and Stratfors on behalf of corporate bidders, with no sense at all for the justness of their actions; they are working to protect corporations and private security contractors and give them license to engage in disinformation campaigns against ordinary citizens and their advocacy groups. The mere fact that the FBI’s senior cybersecurity advisor has recently moved to Hunton and Williams shows just how incestuous this relationship has become. Meanwhile, the Department of Justice is also using its power and force to trample on the rights of citizens like Barrett Brown who are trying to shed light on these nefarious relationships.”

Here is Peter Ludlow’s June 18 article about Barrett Brown in the Nation:

WITHOUT WARRANTS, POLICE TRACK MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

The ACLU report, You Are Being Tracked: How License Plate Readers Are Being Used to Record Americans' Movements, includes a nice, real-world example of what license plate scanners can do, even at this early date.

The potential privacy harms discussed in this report are not merely theoretical. In August 2012, the Minneapolis Star Tribune published a map displaying the location, obtained via a public records request, of the 41 times that Mayor R.T. Rybak’s car had been recorded by a license plate reader in the preceding year. The Star Tribune also reported that of the 805,000 plate scans made in June, less than one percent were hits. Yet for as long as the information was retained, the other 99 percent of scans were also vulnerable to the risk that they might be released, used by the police to track innocent people, or otherwise abused. The alarming fact that a law-abiding citizen’s sensitive location history could be revealed so easily was not lost on this exposed mayor. In response to the Star Tribune’s reporting, he directed the city’s chief of police to recommend a new policy on data retention. We hope the findings of our report spur similar policy changes.

THE POLICE STATE IS ALREADY HERE

For weeks, headlines have trumpeted revelations about the National Security Agency's tracking of Internet traffic and phone communications and the secretive rubber-stamp court intended to provide us some illusion that our privacy and civil liberties are being respected, but which approves virtually every domestic spy scheme it reviews. It's almost... almost like we live in a surveillance state, we stammer as we blink at the brave new world revealed around us. But there's no "almost" about it; from the CIA spying through local cops, to FBI snooping through driver's license databases, to police departments tracking your movements with license-plate scanners, the NSA is only one part of the growing, unfinished, but very real surveillance state that the United States has become.

GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION: EFF SUES NSA OVER SURVEILLANCE

"The First Amendment protects the freedom to associate and express political views as a group, but the NSA's mass, untargeted collection of Americans' phone records violates that right by giving the government a dramatically detailed picture into our associational ties," said EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn. "Who we call, how often we call them, and how long we speak shows the government what groups we belong to or associate with, which political issues concern us, and our religious affiliation. Exposing this information – especially in a massive, untargeted way over a long period of time – violates the Constitution and the basic First Amendment tests that have been in place for over 50 years."

Gordon Humphrey, of Chichester, wrote an email to Snowden praising his actions, The Guardian newspaper, based in Britain, reported Tuesday.

GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA NOW, LEGALLY, AVAILABLE IN AMERICA

For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts.[...]

Still, this move is part of a protracted and alarming degradation of an important taboo. Americans used to hold as a value that we not become like them, even while fighting wars cold and hot against totalitarians unbothered by civil libertarian niceities. Now, government propaganda has become the rule, not the exception, particularly as concerns the international and domestic selling of America's overseas wars. Never forget that a Yemeni journalist who exposed a deadly U.S. attack against women and children sits rotting in jail partly due to the direct intervention by President Barack Obama:

LESS THAN 3 IN 10 AMERICANS TRUST GOVERNMENT

A recent Pew Research poll has found that only 26 percent of Americans trust government to make the right decisions, 73 percent say they have little confidence in government. A majority (53 percent) also say government is a threat to Americans’ rights and freedoms. In fact this is the highest number Pew has found since first asking the question in 1995.
