AnonOps Communications - #Anonymous Punish Police's Acts of Brutality @ #OccupyOakland | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

Citizens of Oakland -

Anonymous has been watching. Since the inception of Occupy Oakland, We have been actively monitoring your behavior, and exposing the identities and sensitive information of Officers of the Oakland Police Department; as they have continued to act in an unprofessional and violent manner. You tear gassed Us. You shot Us with your weapons. You arrested Us. You beat Us. You also did this to Our Friends, and to Our Families. We watched as you cut budgets, cut Our jobs, closed Our schools, Our parks, and Our libraries, while leaving your own salaries alone. We laughed in disgust as Deanna Santana said she would need to speak to her attorney before discussing her pay cut. The people on this list are supposed to represent the best of what the City of Oakland has to offer. If they are the best, why is there so much trouble within the Police Department, and in the City of Oakland?

We are shocked and disgusted by your behavior. Before you commit atrocities against innocent people again, think twice.

You should have expected Us.

FBI focuses on sovereign citizen extremists

FBI focuses on sovereign citizen extremists | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is keeping a closer eye on “sovereign citizen” extremists, reported the Associated Press.

The FBI website describes sovereign citizens as, “anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States.”

 

The AP reported that the FBI has been paying closer attention to the movement since 2009. Since the followers of the movement don’t recognize government authority, they are allegedly frequently involved in white collar crimes such as tax evasion and fraud.

The Tennessee legislature will consider HB1629 and SB2669 in the 2012 session. The legislation would effectively nullify the detention provisions in the NDAA and would also require federal agents making an arrest in the Volunteer State for any reason to first obtain written permission from the county sheriff..

FBI targets more suspects in Conn. police scandal | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

EAST HAVEN, Conn. – The arrests of four police officers accused of tyrannizing Latinos could mark the start of a bigger scandal in this working-class suburb, where the FBI is targeting additional suspects. The state is preparing for the possibility of widespread arrests that could cripple the town's police department.


Federal prosecutors have urged witnesses to come forward with details of abuses in East Haven, which was rocked by last week's arrests of the officers. The FBI described them as a "cancerous cadre" that subjected Hispanics to beatings and false arrests.

George W. Bush lied to the FBI chief
Book reveals that for years operated clandestine program to spy on citizens

By Agency EFE EFE By Agency

Washington - The former U.S. President George W. Bush avoided the resignation of FBI director Robert Mueller, the legal promise to become a covert program of eavesdropping on Americans, something he did not until years later.

This is indicated by journalist Tim Weiner New York Times in his book "Enemies: A History of the FBI" to be released on February 14 in the U.S. and ahead of today's diary excerpts Huffington Post.

The book also reveals that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI, for its acronym in English) was infiltrated between 1993 and 2001 by agents working for Cuba, China, Russia and the terrorist organization Al Qaeda, and that the federal agency led the invasion U.S. from the Dominican Republic in 1965, which resulted in the return of Joaquin Balaguer to the presidency.

In addition, the FBI reconstructed the documents and tapes relating to the case "Iran-Contra", then even the White House had destroyed all evidence relating to arms sales to Iran and diversion of funds to secret anti-Sandinista guerrillas in Nicaragua 1986 and 1987.

Weiner depth especially in the history of the agency after September 11, 2001, when Bush authorized the FBI and the National Security Agency (NSA, for its acronym in English) to eavesdrop on telephone and electronic communications of U.S. citizens without permission the special court that handles such cases.

Mueller strongly opposed the program on the grounds that the White House was "trying to circumvent" the law, and in March 2004 came to write a letter of resignation as director of the FBI on this matter, the book says.

With Mueller's ultimatum on the table, Bush promised in a meeting at the White House "that would give legal support to the program," even when the U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, had refused the day before authorize it.

"Bush's promise was not fulfilled in the overnight. It took years. But on that basis, Mueller and his allies withdrew their threat to resign. Bush kept secret for 20 months," until the New York Times did public program in December 2005, writes Weiner.

Both Bush and Mueller "had taken an oath, when they took his post, faithfully execute the laws of the United States. Only one kept his oath," says the writer.

The book also points out that the FBI Mark Felt exsubdirector was not the only "Deep Throat" in the famous "Watergate" that led to the resignation of president Richard Nixon, but there were at least five of them.

At the end of their journey, Felt held meetings with four other senior officials of the agency, Bob Kunkel, Charles Bates, Dick Long and Charles Nuzum, and any officer more confidence, which talked about the development of political espionage network.

"Together we made a conscious decision to filter the information to newspapers. They did it because the White House was obstructing the investigation," Weiner told the FBI exagente Paul Daly writes.

During the Cold War, the FBI was able to infiltrate spies into the "highest levels" of the communist governments of Cuba, China and the Soviet Union, which returned the play in the 90's, during the presidency of Bill Clinton.

The FBI then spent "more time and energy" investigating the alleged infiltration of spies sent by China in the White House "in any investigation of terrorism" in the decade that preceded the 11-S and in which, according to the book, Al Qaeda operatives came to seep into the offices of the federal agency.

Weiner's work also argues that U.S. banks did lucrative business with Nazi Germany in the 30's, and that rumors about homosexuality of the founder of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover, are "almost certainly false," unlike suggesting the recent Clint Eastwood.

Remember the VA Memo of November 30, 2010? - It is very easy under federal criminal law to passively aid another in his or her crime and thereby subject yourself to criminal exposure. All you need is to know of another's crime and perform any act, even a minor act, that intentionally and knowingly facilitates the crime. -The Bell Tolls for Gov Corruption ;)
