Lawsuit: FBI and local law enforcement gathering intelligence on law abiding citizens
The abuses seen in Guantanamo and Iraq continue in the United States. The tactics have one goal in mind: To intimidate a civilian population.
This is state sponsored terrorism.
ACLU and others have filed suit to obtain more information about FBI efforts to question citizen exercising their constitutionally protected rights.
The FOIAs seek two kinds of information: the actual FBI files of groups and individuals targeted for speaking out; and information about how the practices and funding structure of the task forces, known as JTTFs, may be encouraging rampant and unwarranted spying.Here is what you can review to protect yourself from the police state.
In a similar situation, Morgan Stanley when it refused to provide information was presumed to have committed fraud.
Across the United States, law enforcement is erecting roadblocks to also gather intelligence from non-criminals.
Officers are lying in court to bring false charges. They also question people to intimidate them. There is no probable cause.
Yet, what do the officers do with this information? They lose it in the FBI I-drive. You can thank SAIC for the mess.
Operation Falcon was a program set up as a show of force. But there was one small problem. If you look at the Videos, it appears as though Marines assigned to Quantico were detailed out on these operations in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.
The intelligence gathering in Denver is no different from that of the North Platte, Nebraska F-Troop. Two officers drove across the state to Omaha to allegedly harass those speaking at a public discussion on the Patriot Act.
Denver is currently under a special oversight program because of the Denver Spy Files case. The department agreed to curtail intelligence gathering activities.
FBI's JTTF refuses to comply with oversight audit
JTTF continues to go on fishing trips. These are called "pretextual" interviews. FBI issued a memorandum to suppress lawful speech.
Thomas Fisher and Stephen MacKenna refused to comply with auditors request for access to information.
Since 1997, both Denver Police officers have been detailed to the FBI's JTTF, and supervised by the FBI.
Fisher was in charge of security at the McVeigh Trial and is listed as "retiring" in January 2005, 73011, and monitored protestors opposed to NATO bombing in Serbia.
MacKenna is detailed from the Denver Police Department Intelligence Bureau.
Fisher was one of the JTTF members collecting license plates and providing the information to JTTF.
It is curious how far the Americans will go to gather information. They deport people. The Americans abuse their own citizens. JTTF has access to private information unrelated to criminal activity.
The Americans defile the Koran to intimidate Muslims.
Despite all these threats, the Americans are still losing the war in Iraq.
Law enforcement has no regard for the constitution. They deserve no sympathy in return.
