Former Arizona governor detained at border checkpoint

Former Arizona governor detained at border checkpoint | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

Former Arizona Gov. Raul Castro, who in the 1970s served as the state's first and only Hispanic governor, was detained at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint after the vehicle he was traveling in triggered a radiation sensor. 

Castro told The Associated Press on Thursday that he believed the June 12 stop at a checkpoint on Interstate 19 was prompted by the monitor being set off, not by his appearance. 

"I don't think being Hispanic had anything to do with it," the 96-year-old Castro said. 

Castro's wife, however, is calling for changes in Border Patrol procedures. She said the Border Patrol officials need to use "more common sense" when they encounter elderly people who have undergone medical procedures.

Robert Scheer: Crime of the Century - Truthdig | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

By Robert Scheer

Forget Bernie Madoff and Enron’s Ken Lay—they were mere amateurs in financial crime. The current Libor interest rate scandal, involving hundreds of trillions in international derivatives trade, shows how the really big boys play. And these guys will most likely not do the time because their kind rewrites the law before committing the crime.

An Ohio Officer Asks: Are We Going to Violate the Oath We Have Taken and Enforce the NDAA? : Patriot Newswire | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

James B. Singleton is a Peace Officer in the State of Ohio, and also a State chapter officer for Ohio Oath Keepers. Like many other men in uniform who are faithful to God and want to remain faithful to the oath they have taken, he is concerned about the monstrous violation of our liberties that is the NDAA, passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Democrat President. He has written an open letter for police and sheriffs in our nation, posted on the Oath Keepers web-site. I re-post the letter here. Please share with your friends who are in uniform, whether sheriffs, police, or in the military.

United States holds the highest number of prisoners in solitary confinement of any democratic nation

United States holds the highest number of prisoners in solitary confinement of any democratic nation | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it
Prisoners’ isolation is solitary form of torture Washington Post editorial

In 1890, the U.S. Supreme Court almost declared the practice of solitary confinement in prisons to be unconstitutional.

In a majority opinion, Justice Samuel Miller – a physician and a lawyer – emphasized the practice’s serious risks to mental health: “A considerable number of the prisoners fell, after even a short confinement, into a semi-fatuous condition, from which it was next to impossible to arouse them, and others became violently insane; others still, committed suicide.”

Think it can't happen again? U don't know #NDAA - FEMA Camp American Lockdown - FULL MOVIE - 86 min

Uploaded by lonelantern on Jan 17, 2011

http://CampFEMA.com | Support the filmmakers purchase your DVD today - Recent legislation attempting to legitimize the use of internment camps to detain U.S. citizens in the event of an uprising or civil unrest has many people asking what nation they live in.

In a country born out of political dissent, we watch our leaders in Washington slowly pass bills that label ordinary Americans as thought criminals and potential domestic terrorists for simply questioning the actions of their government. We see third party candidates and their impassioned supporters listed in secret government reports that call their allegiance into question and brand them as fanatics and extremists.




Senate committee hearings and official FBI documents further illustrate the mindset of our elected officials as they classify homeschoolers, gun rights activists and anti-abortionists as threats against the existing social and political order; by default creating an entire nation of radicals and revolutionaries - where everyone is a suspect equally guilty until proven otherwise. 

How has our government shown that they will deal with these people? The same way as every other totalitarian regime throughout history - marginalize their activities then lock them up. Prisons are being built; internment camps constructed and laws passed that deal severely with anyone who dares to step out of line or ask too many questions.

Who are the potential domestic terrorists that will end up in these camps?

Read the documentation for yourself and hear what our experts have to say. States rights take a front row seat in this new political thriller that is guaranteed to send shivers up your spine. Find out where the true power of the people rests in halting these treasonous activities NOW!

Obama Institutes Slavery In US: A Plea To Law Enforcement (Part 2 of 2)

Slavery is once more legal in the United States thanks to language buried deep inside Executive Order 13603, which Barack Obama signed into law on March 16th 2012. According to this Executive Order the President, or those he designates, can conscript "persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation," in "peacetime and times of national emergency." In a nutshell, that means that Barack Obama, and those he designates, can seize any resource, property, or person at any time for any reason, forcing that person with labor without being paid.

There is only ONE definition for forced, "uncompensated employment." That word is slavery.

This episode also includes an appeal to Federal, State, County, and Local law enforcement officers to uphold the oath they took to "Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States," by defending the citizens they have sworn to protect, even when the aggressor is a Federal Government that has devolved into nothing more than a Tyranny where one man (or those he designates) can order the enslavement of its citizens, their detention in labor and re-education camps - even their deaths - simply by signing a piece of paper. 

Executive Order 13603:

EDITORIAL: The U.N. is coming for your guns | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it
The United Nations is deliberating over a treaty that will place comprehensive limits on the international weapons trade. The language of the draft agreement is so expansive it wouldn’t take an Obama-appointed judge very long to extend the treaty to cover the domestic firearms market as well. If American jurists continue to be enamored by the popular trend to consider international precedence when making U.S. rulings, you can kiss the Second Amendment goodbye.

Love liberty? You might be a terrorist — RT | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

Are you suspicious of federal authority? How about really into individual liberty? Well according to a new study funded by the US Department of Homeland Security, you very well might be a terrorist.

 

A report published earlier this year by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) at the University of Maryland has surfaced, and in their DHS-funded findings, Americans “reverent of individual liberty” and others adamant about protecting their personal freedoms are categorized as extreme right-wing terrorists.

The FBI has been given an expanded role in coordinating the domestic intelligence-gathering activities of the CIA and other agencies under a plan enacted this year by Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., officials said.

The bureau’s highest-ranking field agents now also serve as the DNI’s representatives across the country. The change is intended to improve collaboration, but some officials say it has created new friction between the FBI and CIA.

Twitter data raises question: Who's following you? Maybe police | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it
By Matt Pearce

Everything is evidence. You might want to remember that the next time you log on.

According to new data released by Twitter on Monday, American police are leading the charge to get users’ info from the popular San Francisco-based microblogging service. Overall, from Jan. 1 through June,  the company received 849 law enforcement requests for individual users’ information, granting 63% of those requests.

American law enforcement accounted for 80% of those information requests compared to other nations, just as Americans are thought to make up a dominant share of the service’s users. U.S. officials made 679 requests, getting what they wanted 75% of the time.

What’s more, the company reported, “We’ve received more government requests in the first half of 2012, as outlined in this initial dataset, than in the entirety of 2011.” MORE: http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-twitter-user-info-law-enforcement-20120702,0,7430541.story

Retaliation feared for Fast and Furious whistle-blowers - Washington Times

Retaliation feared for Fast and Furious whistle-blowers - Washington Times | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

The two men leading Congress' investigation into "Fast and Furious" said Friday they see signs the administration is retaliating against the whistle-blowers who first shed light on the botched gunwalking operation that has President Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. under fire.

Sen. Charles E. Grassley and Rep. Darrel Issa demanded the Justice Department's inspector general step into the fray and make sure the whistle-blowers are shielded.

 

LOL - Like the Office of the Inspector General would ever do that! What a crock of bull! I literally almost died wainting for the IGs to act! They never did because their job is to put out internal gov fires, not deal with gov corruption; speaking from my own experience and observations. - Randy
