REMOVE or RESIGN: Attorney Bob McCullouch MUST GO! #Ferguson, #JusticeForMikeBrown

Big Mike Brown

Michael Brown, Jr. …

FERGUSON TOWNSHIP, MO. — Early this morning I sat down at my computer and began to look up contact information for Missouri State Government Leadership.

The Reason: Justice for Mike Brown, Jr.

Once found I went to MoveOn.org and started this formal petition. Started, in this way, We, the undersigned of this petition are calling for Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to REMOVE Saint Louis Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCullouch from the adjudication of the Michael Brown, Jr. Case, for biases and prejudices, OR for Governor Nixon to RESIGN immediately for dereliction of duty, as Governor, by a failure to act as requested on behalf of the People of his State and in particular the Citizenship of Ferguson Township, MO. and Saint Louis County, MO. Michael Brown, Jr.’s funeral is going on right now as I right this blog post. Soon his family will officially lay their child to rest but the FACT REMAINS there has been no justice. No arrest of Officer Darren Wilson. No voluntary recusal of Attorney McCullouch. WHY?

There is no rhyme or reason for this injustice. Or for the simple, honorable requests of the Citizens of Ferguson and Saint Louis County to not be honored. For the death of Michael Brown, Jr. to be not in vain. Soon enough the media circus will pack up their clown cars, megaphones, and big top tents and move on to the next salacious story but Michael Brown, Jr.’s family and friends will remain. Injustice will remain, IF. Unless and until we as a Concerned Collective rise up in one accord agreement and make the Powers that Be in Jefferson City, MO. to LISTEN this injustice will remain unanswered.

Not to long ago I called upon the Citizens of Ferguson, Concerned Citizens of Missouri to MARCH 2 Jefferson City and take the petitions that they had originally signed for Attorney McCullouch to recuse himself from the Michael Brown Case voluntarily because of very real and serious concerns.

To give you a bit of background: Last week Citizens of Ferguson, Concerned Citizens of Missouri took those recusal petitions to Attorney McCullouch in Clayton, MO., to the Saint Louis County Courthouse, but and initially the citizens were denied entry into the courthouse by Clayton Police. Can you imagine? Denied access, denied entry into a public building? Their courthouse. Access denied. Justice delayed, is justice denied!

WHY? Answer: The powers that be just want this to go away. The death of Michael Brown, Jr., while tragic, is really not that big of a deal to them, after all it wasn’t their white child that was killed by police. Not that much to be overly concerned about. Frankly, and respectfully, “one less N***er to have to deal with and take care of in the world. Next. …” This, I promise you, is the attitude. The true and right approach of governance. Of leadership in the Show Me State. Because, and believe it or not, Missouri is STILL a, “Southern State”. Racism. Racists. ALL still abide. Bottom line. And unless and until we as a Concerned Collective remove it from the root. Remove it from our presence it will remain. It will abide and abound. Growing in exponential power.

And so Concerned Collective the Work of Justice IS NOT DONE. The Work of #JusticeForMikeBrown remains unfinished. His remains, though laid to rest, will not rest in peace until there is an answer given for his senseless death. Are you prepared to do the work? We welcome you openly.

Until then, “Good night and good luck #Ferguson …”

#Blog: “Operation Broken Trust And an @TheJusticeDept Service FAILURE to Inform..” By Rhett E. Column; #SayWhatNews, #AXJ, #FreePress

Social Media Screen Grab FPD Seal 2014

Official Seal for the United States Public Defender for the Eastern District of California, Sacramento California Office ..

SACRAMENTO, California — Its been 3 years. 36 months, even by new mathematical standards since the Federal Public Defender’s Office for the Eastern District of California helped to defend one Christopher L. Jackson, 46, of Elk Grove, CA. for his involvement in a real estate investment fraud scheme.

But and according to federal court documents from 2011 and 2013 Chris Jackson is free? Free after having been formally sentenced to 30 years in federal prison. Bringing to a close a near decade old federal investigation code-named, “Operation Broken Trust” by federal authorities.

Jackson and at least seven other people managed to defraud and divest millions of dollars from several hundred people throughout California through the use of an investment club company called Diversified Management Consultants, Inc.

DMC Building

Diversified Management Consultants (D.M.C.) located at 721 Del Paso Rd. Sacramento, CA. …

It was from this location that Jackson and his accomplices, a man named Michael Bolden, 60, the ring leader, would from 2003 to 2009 take the homes and finances of people. Today this location is for sale.

According to the Better Business Bureau of Sacramento D.M.C. is no longer in business. Gee, I wonder why?

Further I wonder how and why the Federal Public Defender’s Office for the Eastern District of California, Heather Williams-Chief Defender ,Attorney Douglas J. Beevers–Assistant Federal Public Defender, and Investigator Melvin Buford, would FAIL to disclose this FACT to the victims of this horrendous crime? Say what Chris Jackson is free? You gotta be joking! This guy is supposed to be doing 30years man. Curious.

One of the victims, who I happen to personally know, Ms. Florha G. Jones, 46, of Fairfield, CA., has paid for those sins of non-disclosure twice over in four years time.

Ms. Jones was used, abused, coughed up and spit out not only by Chris Jackson and Company but by a federal, state and local law enforcement community hell-bent on her destruction.

What is surprising is that someone who is supposed to be a trusted official, a gatekeeper for law and order, an F.B.I. (Federal Bureau of Investigation) Agent would stoop to such a low.

Agent Richard M. Snodgrass who was the lead federal investigator on this case for California, credited with bringing Christopher Jackson to justice ,did in fact harass and harangue Ms. Jones to the point that in two years time she lost her job, of 25 years with Kaiser Permanente, as a Registered Nurse, her home of 3years in Elk Grove, CA., a 2005 Volkswagen  Tuareg, checking and savings accounts with Bank of America ( that she had since age 16),stocks, bonds, and other odd marketable securities. ALL, ALL NOW, seized by the federal government, seized by Agent Snodgrass to make ‘financial restitution’ to the victims of this ponzi scheme, according to him.

F.B.I. Logo, 2014 This from the gatekeeper of law. Supposedly helping us all to be separate but not equal from the plants and the animals. The naive who would dare to think that they and they alone know what is best for themselves. Such is not capable of free and independent thought processes and we need, we need the watchmen on the wall to tell us better, show us better.

And such was all because Florha’s name appeared on some documentation related to an at home based business and investment club, that with Chris Jackson’s help, she started in 2008 called, “Genesis Innovations, LL C.” as a means to recoup some of what she lost during the ‘financial crisis’ of 2007.

Jackson took that business, that she started, and used it fraudulently. Upon arrest in 2009 Jackson admitted, openly and in writing, that he used Genesis Innovations as a front for his nefarious activities to Agent Snodgrass.

Yet somehow Richard Snodgrass with the Federal Bureau of Investigation manages to hang the ‘financial restitution’ for Jackson’s crimes on my now wife Florha G. Jones. Taking everything from her and leaving her with absolutely no legal recourse. WHY? HOW? The nearest dot or questions to that can be answered/found in connection to this have to do with Florha’s former employer and in fact her then supervisor at the time, Tatyanna Bellanuevia, Critical Care Management Supervisor for Kaiser Permenete, South Sacramento, CA. Medical Center.

Agent Snodgrass is married to Bellanuevia, a mail-order Russian bride from St. Petersburg. Bellanuevia hated Florha. Snodgrass knew this, and used it to destroy Florha. Agent Snodgrass illegally obtained personal and confidential information related to Florha’s medical and employments records for Kaiser. And used that information against her to try to entrap her. Coming to her home twice in 2010 and pumping her for information about Chris Jackson, about Genesis Innovations, about D.M.C., etc. Then  when we found out that Snodgrass had viewed her medical and employment records through something called a, “Breaking the Glass” Audit by the IT Medical Records firm EPIC Corporation all of the pieces to this bizarre and disgraceful puzzle began to fall into place. 

From 2008 until 2010 Agent Snodgrass had Florha under severe, invasive and intrusive surveillance. (Such still continues today by the way.) Hoping to connect or make certain that Florha knew about Chris Jackson’s activities, whereabouts, etc. And that somehow she was the ‘ring-leader’ for this nefarious circus. When and in fact such is not the case. Never has been. Never will be. Florha is and remains a victim, one of many, in the crimes of Christopher Lawrence Jackson and others.

Compensation for “Operation Broken Trust,” victims paid out by the federal government from 2012 to 2013

From about April of 2012 until about November of 2013 the federal government, through the United States Department of Justice, United State Treasury and the U.S. Federal Reserve System paid out numbers totaling in the billions of dollars to the victims of this crime across the country, according to reports from Attorney General Eric Holder.

Florha however,has received NOTHING. Granted we have filed all the necessary complaints, a four-year process, 48 months even by new mathematical standards, to get the justice that we seek. But and in the mean time folks like Jackson who is supposed to be serving a 30 year federal prison sentence is free, according to some PDF files from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California and this Judge …

Judge Brennan

The Honorable Edmund F. Brennan, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judge Edmund F. Brennan  set Jackson free after his Attorney Douglas J. Beevers argued he had been ‘coerced’ and was not given his ‘due process’ by Agent Snodgrass. It took him about 2years to make this argument but he made it and Judge Brennan, a George W. Bush appointee, set Jackson free, officially, on 13 August 2013, citing that he needed to go to drug and alcohol counseling and agree to regular drug testing to which the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District, Benjamin B. Wagner, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew D. Segal–who adjudicated Jackson, himself, in 2010,2012 & 2013, of California agreed. Drug and Alcohol counseling? Drug testing? Say what? I mean yeah Chris Jackson did smoke and drink a little bit but he is no addict.

Assistant United States Attorney Matthew D. Segal signed off on court papers as did Wagner agreeing that Jackson had been coerced and not given his due process by Snodgrass all the while, publicly, as late as yesterday, according to this article from the Elk Grove News online, yesterday, Jackson is not free?

It’s quite confusing. Because at one turn the last and most recent articles, on-line, for this issue REPORT that Christopher Lawrence Jackson is doing 30years in San Quinton. And yet this posting from Wikipedia has him free? SO, which is it?
Featured Image -- 2247The reason I ask is because and to be perfectly honest with you two things abound. One neither the federal defenders office nor the Department of Justice, Court System or Otherwise, has bothered to DISCLOSE the status of Mr. Jackson for the last 3years to Ms. Jones or to myself, David R. Davidson, as her husband. NOTHING!
Our work. Our labors for justice. For disclosure. Have been a credited to others instead of us. WHY? We brought the United States Federal Government Christopher Lawrence Jackson. #WeBuiltThat
WHY the lack? Answer: A Failure to Disclose. A WILLFUL FAILURE TO DISCLOSE AT THAT.
Yet, still and all we are not to complain. Not to raise an ounce of displeasure because this somehow is really how the process works. The guilty go free while the victim(s) suffer, often times perish because some career attorneys and a near-do-well investigator want to look good, look like their doing something for the “community,” representing others who cannot represent themselves. Oh the poor criminal and the even piss poor F.B.I. Agent who was just trying to impress the memory of his late great-grandfather, Ephrem Snodgrass, who founded the F.B.I. with J. Edgar Hoover. It’s just how the cookie crumbles now shut up and go away.
Is this justice? Is this justified? Last I looked FAILURE to disclose was a crime. Whether civilian or police. With a lawyer present you are supposed to disclose what you know as it relates to a legal matter. Period. Full stop.
But and to date NO ONE within or without the Department of Justice has DISCLOSED a damn thing! Yet if I was to have a cop or a representative of the law enforcement community come and knock on my door and say, “What do you know about Operation Broken Trust or Chris Jackson?” I am duty bound with an attorney present to divulge all I know, and if I don’t I go to jail. I may go to jail anyway before it’s all over with but you see, I hope, my point here.
Florha has been, we have been left in a lurch. The books have been cooked. And it started the day Richard M. Snodgrass and another fella named William E. “Bill,” Majors with the I.R.S. entered Florha’s life, and perhaps even the ball started rolling down the hill when Tatyana Bellunevia came into the vision, the site line, of Florha G. Jones?
Or and perhaps it started even further back than that when Florha’s family, on both her mother and her father’s side were instrumental in the civil rights movement. Her mother with the Black Panther Party in Oakland, CA?
Black Panthers

The Black Panther Party Logo

Or and perhaps it can be found in her father’s family’s work with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., down in Louisiana organizing and marching. Getting the African-American Community down their registered to vote? Etc.

One has to begin, at some point and time to ask themselves these two questions, “Who Am I?” and “Why Me?”

I learned these two questions or was put on the trail of these two questions by a recently made Facebook friend. Who is himself going through a similar situation. For years in fact. It was only until he started asking himself those two questions that he began to connect the dots. Some doors were opened for him, yet many doors were closed because he went from being a career journalist and educator in the Denver, CO. area to living in his car in just a short period of time. He, like my wife, was at the height of the community and now he is in its depths. What? How? Connections. Family History. Right of Deed, Passage and Claim.

You see, he is a direct descendant of John Jacob Astor IV.

J.J. Astor, I.V.

Captain John Jacob Astor, I.V. One of the richest landowners and business people in the world. .. Reportedly drowned (really murdered) on board the H.M.S. Titanic in April of 1912…

Astor was murdered in April of 1912 along with nearly 1,400 of his fellow passengers on board the Titanic. And such was not by iceberg. It was by design of some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world at the time.

Chief among them were the Rothschild and the Rockefeller families. They hated Astor. Hated his family, and everything that they stood for. The same is true for his grandchild today. They have stopped at nothing short of killing him and what is left of his family in Colorado and elsewhere throughout America.

You see he has a claim. And its a claim to a massive fortune. The powers that be know it. And have done all that they can to keep him from claiming it. Because they know that if he ever got his hands on his grandfather’s fortune the world as we know it would cease to exist. The days of the ‘rich, crusty, old white-haired citizen’ would be over. Their rule and reign would be over.

His family has been and continues to be harassed, harangued, callewaged and cajoled into death, imprisonment, and marginalization as well as ostracized to the so-called margins of the community.

This is, unfortunately, what has been done to Florha and I. Name, reputation, and standing in the community has been destroyed. All in the hopes that we will either give up and go away or are one day found, months or perhaps years later when no one gives us a word much less the time of day anymore, dead. Throats cut. Hanging in a bedroom or bathroom. Whatever the scenario. We will be and have been made to be left to the margins.

The same could well be said for anyone else who would read this blog posting through. Surely you have a similar story? An exacting set of circumstances to which you find yourself or someone who you know or love, care very much about, and wish to help them. We must ban together or, and as Benjamin Franklin said, in part, “or surely we shall all hang separately…”

I urge you to reach out to me directly through this blog posting BECAUSE I want to hear from you. What has the government done to you? What have they allowed to be done to you, that, for whatever the reason, has caused you great hurt, harm or danger? Why is it that you just can’t seem to get justice? Can’t seem to get heard? No matter how hard you try. Who you talk to or don’t talk to. You have been shunned. Excommunicated from your family, friends, loved one and community. Left to the margins. I want to hear from you. Reach out to me through this blog posting with some contact information and your story.

I don’t know much but I do know this much and that is that you are not alone. We are among friends. And one way or another justice will be served. We will have our day in court. We will be heard because, and contrary to popular opinion there is strength in numbers.

Who Am I? Why Me? Lets find out the answer to that together. Until then, “Good night and good luck fellow Citizens of Earth…”

Peace.

[Crime & Punishment NEWS] Graves Co. Sheriff: 17-year-old boy, mother dead – WPSD Local 6: Your news, weather, and sports authority

Ms. Kimberly Thomas (Jackson) and her son Michael Eli Mohoney

“MAYFIELD, Ky – (Report from WPSD-TV, News Channel 6 Paducah, Ky.) A mother and her teenage son have both died in an incident that started in Mayfield but ended in Ohio.

The investigation began at a convenience store on the southside of Paducah. Paducah Police got a call Friday morning of a possible abduction. Video showed a woman getting out of a white 2004 Yukon SUV and being forced back inside the vehicle.

Around 10:00 a.m., friends of 34-year-old Kimberly Thomas (Jackson) went to her home in Mayfield after she did not report to work. When they arrived they found her son, 17-year-old Michael Eli Mohney, dead inside.

The Graves County Coroner Phillip McClain says Mohney died of 2 gunshot wounds.

Another call was placed to Kentucky State Police that 41-year-old Terry Froman of Brookport, Illinois had been to his mother’s house in Paducah and was covered in blood. Police then learned that Kim was an ex-girlfriend of Froman and that he had abducted her from her Mayfield home. The Graves County Sheriff’s Office says it appears Kim’s son was shot during the abduction.

Using data from Froman’s cell phone, troopers from the Ohio State Patrol learned that he was traveling through Ohio on I-75 and positioned themselves to locate the suspect.  Around 1:00 p.m., troopers found Froman’s vehicle on I-75 just north of Cincinnati, near Middletown, Ohio.

Troopers initiated a traffic stop and Froman pulled over. When the troopers exited their vehicles they heard shots fired inside the SUV. The shots were not fired at the troopers and they did not return fire.

The troopers took up secure positions and shut down the road for the safety of the other drivers. They then approached the SUV and apprehended Froman. He had a self-inflicted single gunshot wound and was transported to a hospital. The injury is non-life threatening.

Kim was found dead inside the vehicle.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redman says murder and kidnapping charges have been filed against Froman. Charges from Ohio will be determined later.

An autopsy is scheduled for Michael Eli Mohney on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. eastern in Louisville. ..” (Emphasis Mine.)

Editorial: Terribly distressing and troubling news. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the community. Such a beautiful family, precious and wonderful smiles and demeanor come through the photo above, to me at least, WHY would this man do this to the child and his mother. Amazing! The evil of men. #RIP.

[Torture NEWS] European Court Finds CIA Interrogation Techniques ‘Amounted to Torture’

Mr. Abu Zubaydah

The European Court of Human Rights recently concluded that CIA ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ used on detainee Abu Zubaydah from 2002 to 2003 ‘amounted to torture’ according to this report from Turthout Magazine: European Court Finds CIA Interrogation Techniques ‘Amounted to Torture’.

The European Court of Human Rights concludes that so-called enhanced interrogation techniques – specifically approved by John Yoo and Jay Bybee for use by the CIA on Abu Zubaydah at a Polish black site – amounted to torture.

When President Obama says the United States “tortured some folks,” perhaps he is referring to Abu Zubaydah. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) recently issued a decision concluding that the techniques the CIA used to interrogate Zubaydah “amounted to torture” within the meaning of Article 3 of the Geneva Convention. [1]

The ECHR decision connects the torture perpetrated on Zubaydah with analysis provided in a legal memo dated August 1, 2002, from John Yoo and Jay Bybee to the Central Intelligence Agency’s General Counsel John Rizzo (Interrogation Memo). ..

The Capture of Zubaydah Directly Lead to Drafting of Interrogation Memo

Abu Zubaydah was captured from a home in Pakistan around March 27, 2002, and taken to black site in Thailand. Zubaydah remained in Thailand until around December 4, 2002, when he was sent to a black site in Stare Kiejkuty, Poland, where he remained until September 2003.

In early 2002, immediately after the capture of Zubaydah, the CIA asked whether the proposed use of specific enhanced interrogation techniques violated federal law prohibiting torture. According to Yoo’s testimony before a House Judiciary Subcommittee, the Office of Legal Counsel was “asked to evaluate the legality of interrogation methods proposed for use with Zubaydah.” [2] The CIA provided Yoo and Bybee with a list of 10 proposed interrogation methods for review.  The list included “walling,” facial slaps, stress positions and waterboarding. [3]

John Yoo and Jay Bybee analyzed the 10 proposed methods. Essentially, the legal analysis in the Interrogation Memo can be summed us as follows:

  Torture requires a “specific intent” to cause prolonged mental harm. [4]

  If an interrogator has a “good-faith belief” that he will not inflict prolonged harm, then there is no specific intent .[5]

  The “good-faith belief” that there will be no prolonged harm is found in statements from psychologist consultants who were paid by the CIA. [6]

The ECHR “notes that the CIA documents give a precise description of the treatment to which High-Value Detainees were being subjected in custody as a matter of precisely applied and predictable routine, starting from their capture through rendition and reception at the back site, to their interrogations.” [9] Some of these precise routines include the enhanced interrogation techniques discussed in the Interrogation Memo drafted by Yoo and Bybee. For example, the CIA did not waterboard Zubaydah prior to the August 1, 2002. Then, the CIA waterboarded Zubaydah 83 times in the month of August 2002, immediately after the Interrogation Memo was written.

While in Poland, the ECHR concludes, the CIA’s treatment of Zubayah “amounted to torture.” In other words, the precise techniques analyzed and approved by John Yoo and Jay Bybee and used by the CIA in Poland on Zubaydah, amounted to torture. ..”

This is some enlightening news in lieu of the pending report to be released by the Government of the United States of America on this very thing.

One has to wonder what will President Obama have to say on this, publicly and privately, subject when the report is released.

Watch this space closely folks!

Peace.

#Blog: “FREE Matthew Paul ‘Koenig’ DeHart! A Case for #PoliticalAsylum..” By Rhett E. Column; #SayWhatNews, #AXJ, #FreePress

Since 2010 the Government of the United States of America, in conjunction with the Government of Canada, has been doing all it could to obtain an alleged white paper report(s) that one Matthew Paul DeHart, of Franklin, TN. has. This white paper report(s) is damning to the Government of America. And Paul DeHart has it.

In perpetuity the United States Department of Justice and the F.B.I. have latched on to an alleged story of Matthew Paul DeHart, am Air Force Veteran of the Wars in Iraq & Afghanistan, is a pedophile, child pornographer and a ‘crazed’ individual. This story stems from a 2009 issue involving three underage individuals that Matt befriended on a World of Warcraft gaming site. The police state contends that Matt drove from the home of his parents in Tennessee to some place in upstate Indiana to meet, personally, these three teenagers. He bought alcohol and the drug Addarall. Giving all to them and allegedly raping them.

The children’s parents found out about this and contacted police. The police in Indiana reach out to Matt through the police in Franklin, TN. all question Matt. Re-enter the F.B.I. who, get a tip, that Matt is a part of the Anonymous Collective and has obtained information damning to the government and intends to release said to either Wikileaks or Wikipedia. The F.B.I. come to Matt’s family’s home in 2010, twice, raiding it, taking any and all electronic equipment, arresting Matt, finding nothing.

For several days and hours Matt is questioned and physically tortured by the F.B.I. Matt was medically discharged from the Air Force for PTSD and other mental and physical acute issues. Imagine being arrested, detained and questioned for several days and hours, tortured, for information that you allegedly have or don’t have and your involvement with Anonymous? Such compounds, exponentially, your already medically diagnosed issues, especially issues obtained in service to your country? Unbelievable!

Matt and his family pack up, pick up and seek asylum in Canada, near Maine, Attorney General Eric Holder reaches out to his counterpart in Canada and officialdom in Canada find out where in Canada Matt and his family are, arresting Matt and detaining his family for questioning. Matt his again subjected to questioning and scrutiny for several hours and days. Allegedly, tortured by Canadian authorities as well?

Since 2013 both Matt and his family have been trying to get and keep asylum in Canada for reasons of torture, harassment, and haranguing by the police state. To date the Governments of Canada and United States have done all that they can to stop this. Attorney General Holder wants Matt extradited back to the US to face these alleged charges in Indiana. But Anonymous and Friends know different! Holder & Co. WANT this white paper report(s) and will STOP AT NOTHING to get it.

Matt has obtained good legal counsel but such is expensive. Enter Anonymous & Friends. All have banded together to help Matt DeHart.

I know Matt, through his social media handle Koenig, and for about 3 years I kept in regular contact with him. We have many similar interests and when I heard his real name and story mentioned through Anonymous & Friends I began to put two and two together and decided I needed to do all I could to help my friend. Matt is a friend.

Thus this video, and at least and to date one blog post on WordPress in his name. I am and will continue to share news and information in order to FREE Matthew Paul ‘Koenig’ DeHart from these phony, bogus and trumped-up charges BECAUSE Matthew Paul DeHart has done GREAT public as well as private service to this world, never mind the United States of America and as Citizens of this World we should do all we can, I believe, to HELP OUR FELLOW MAN.

Matthew Paul DeHart deserves to be heard. His story deserves to be told as does anyone else for that matter who has been harassed, harangued and pursued by a police state hell-bent on their demise. To that end I hope and I pray to the god of my choice that you will join us. Join us! Help US FREE Matthew Paul ‘Koenig’ DeHart. Thank you. Links to news and information can be found below.

Police Officer Administering a 'Field Sobriety Test'...

#Blog: “The White House Responds: Body Cams for Police..” By Rhett E. Column; #SayWhatNews, #AXJ, #FreePress

President Obama

President Barack H. Obama, II, 2012 Democratic National Convention…

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Tonight! I received a response from The White House on that We The People #petition for body cameras on police.

HERE IS THEIR RESPONSE: “Response to Your Petition on the Use of Body-Worn Cameras

By Roy L. Austin, Jr., Deputy Assistant to the President for the Office of Urban Affairs, Justice and Opportunity in the Domestic Policy Counsel.

Since the officer-involved shooting death of Michael Brown on August 9, the nation and the world have borne witness to unrest in the city of Ferguson, Missouri. Across the country, there has been a demand for answers about the circumstances under which Michael was killed, and a demand for solutions.

The petition you added your name to — proposing a law that would require all state, county, and local police to wear a camera — is potentially one such solution. Thank you for adding your name, and for participating in this debate via the We the People platform.

There’s understandably been much discussion about whether law enforcement officers across the country should use body cameras. In fact, for years, this Administration has advanced the use of cameras, both body-worn and vehicular, and recognized the numerous benefits to making cameras available to law enforcement officers. We support the use of cameras and video technology by law enforcement officers, and the Department of Justice continues to research best practices for implementation.

Today, the Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services Office (COPS) and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) released a report from a September 2013 conference analyzing some of the costs and benefits of law enforcement using body-worn video technology. Some of the benefits the report cites include, but are not limited to:

Evidence that both officers and civilians acted in a more positive manner when they were aware that a camera was present;
New opportunities for effective training of law enforcement officers presented by the use of cameras; and
Useful evidence of interactions was often captured on video

It was noted at this conference that police departments are increasingly adopting the use of body-worn cameras.

In July 2012, to address allegations of unconstitutional conduct by the New Orleans Police Department, the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the City of New Orleans filed a consent decree that included expanded use of vehicle cameras, with significant policy and accountability requirements. Through the court-appointed Independent Monitor, the Department of Justice will receive additional information on the impact of expanded camera use.

In addition, the Department of Justice will continue to support grant programs, such as the Community Oriented Policing Services’ Community Policing Development Program and the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, and encourage investments in video equipment by law enforcement agencies.

And while we understand that there are a number of benefits to having law enforcement officers use cameras, there continue to be many unanswered questions, including:

What is the most effective type of camera (vehicle, body, weapon) — and if body, where is it best placed (lapel, ear, belt)?
What are the privacy implications of having officers record interactions with the public?
When should cameras be turned on?
Does every officer on a force need a camera?
How long should video data be maintained and who should have access to it?
What is the impact on community relationships?

The issue of cost also cannot be ignored.

The Department will continue to support the use of video technology, review and evaluate law enforcement agencies that use it, and engage in discussions to answer the questions above to address the manner in which this technology impacts policing, communities, and public safety.

We also know that cameras alone will not solve the problem where there is mistrust between police and communities. As a nation, we must continue to address this lack of trust. Most Americans are law-abiding and most law enforcement officers work hard day in and day out to protect and serve their communities. When there is trust between community and law enforcement agency, crimes are more easily solved. And when community members and officers know that they will be treated with fairness and respect, public safety is enhanced.

Every day, the Department of Justice’s COPS Office, Community Relations Service (CRS) and Office of Justice Programs (OJP) work with law enforcement and community leaders to help increase mutual trust and respect. This work enhances community-policing initiatives, strengthens departmental problem-solving and mediation skills, and expands departmental cultural awareness of diverse communities. In addition, the Civil Rights Division’s investigations and litigation regarding law enforcement agencies seek remedies to promote trust and confidence between law enforcement and the communities they serve.

As Ferguson continues to heal as a community, this Administration will continue to work to ensure that our justice system, across the country, is truly just. We’ll continue to work to support the use of video technology, review and evaluate law enforcement agencies that use it, and continue to engage in discussions about how this technology impacts policing, communities, and public safety.

In the meantime, thank you for speaking out. We appreciate your interest and recommendation on this very important issue, and we welcome additional ideas you may have on this topic. ..

Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.

MY RESPONSE: “Good evening,

I just finished reading a Mr. Roy L. Austin, Jr. with the White House’s Office of Urban Affairs, Justice & Opportunity in the Domestic Policy Counsel response to a petition I singed on We The People regarding mandatory use of body cameras. I have some comments to make toward Mr. Austin’s response.

I appreciate Mr. Austin taking the time to respond and put some FACTS on the table as it relates to President Obama’s position on things such as this.

I do not agree, entirely, with Mr. Austin’s assessments but appreciate his willingness to share them because they are on Mr. Obama’s behalf. Therefore I do not agree, entirely with President Obama’s assessments but I appreciate his willingness to share them through Mr. Austin.

Here’s the deal.

In many respects and regards volunteerism has never gotten any traction. The petition is question proposed a mandatory decree for the law enforcement community, particularly local and state police to wear body cams. And police should.

Case in point on why they should, Denver, CO. Police there have just started using body cams, eye wear cams in fact, and the rate of crime and retention is down 50%.

Further community report is up 60% between police and community. Both the Mayor there and the Police Chief have seen a 60% jump in police to community accountability and are fast-nearing the 100% mark on all counts. Such is good!

The point is granted to Mr. Austin and ultimately President Obama on volunteerism with regards to the Denver Police but and respectfully, we have cross the Rubicon on this. Michael Brown was no accident. No reckless abandon an officer of the law, sworn, and duty bound to uphold it and keep the citizens safe and secure in their houses, personages and property shot and killed and unarmed person in cold blood.

It would have been different if Michael O.D. Brown, Jr. was running guns, pushing dope or selling arms to some enemy of the state the shooting of him by officer Darren Wilson would have been justifiable homicide. Case closed. But and alas officer Darren Wilson shot and killed this young man because he could.

The claim is that Michael Brown physically assaulted Darren Wilson and therefore officer Wilson was justifiable in his homicide of Michael Brown. I don’t agree! Further had Darren Wilson had a body cam I am double sure we would be a lot further down the road to discovery on this issue.

So, and to close, I appreciate President Obama and Mr. Austin’s stance and opinion on this issue but it’s for crap! It will be for crap today, crap tomorrow, crap next week, next month and next year.

Unless and until accountability is made mandatory we will, as a Nation, have far more Michael Browns, far more Dillon Taylor’s, far more Eric Garner’s, etc.

Thank you for the opportunity to weigh in. Be well. “

Peace.

[World Affairs NEWS] Syrian opposition ‘stands ready’ with Obama on ISIS – Al Arabiya News

Just finished reading a tweeted report via Mint Press News which states that, “Syrian opposition ‘stands ready’ with Obama on ISIS – Al Arabiya News.”

Only one problem with that though The Free Syrian Army is in no position to make such a statement.

Irregardless and irrespective of whether or not the free world much less President Obama is in any disagreement with Bashar Al-Assad or not YOU CANNOT invade a sovereign country with any kind or sort of standing army. Especially one in which a democratically elected president still holds power and authority.

It is against the rules spelled out quite well in the Geneva Convention. And I know that I know Obama is a big fan of both the laws and the prophets. Especially the international ones. #justsaying

Any ways I am just reminded of the quote from then Governor of New York State Mario Cuomo, Democrat, “Politicians campaign in poetry but govern in pros..” From the poetry side of that quotation I think Mr. Obama thinks that he will flash a smile, take a bow at the waste and Bashar Al-Assad will just step aside and say, “Welcome. The place is yours to do with as you wish.” #justmytwocentsworth

Peace.
