Excerpt from US Patent #20140025755

“When there are at least a given number of video clips with similar time stamps and geolocation stamps uploaded to a repository, it is inferred that an event of interest has likely occurred, and a notification signal is transmitted (e.g., to a law enforcement agency, to a news organization, to a publisher of a periodical, to a public blog, etc.).”

Hayden’s Note:

I feel the need to comment on this issue because I am such a tech-geek. While I absolutely love our electronic frontier, and the constant pushing of boundaries and new ideas, I am also a staunch privacy and Constitutional advocate. As our technology stretches into what was once only science fiction, it is hard to develop apps or widgets that provide services without them also invading our private lives.

I am interested to hear what you have to think about not only this Android patent, but the rapid growth of personal technology. Do you see this particular tech as a benefit or a hindrance?

Hayden’s Note: 63 Cleveland Cops Suspended After Car Chase Ends with 137 Rounds Fired, 2 Unarmed People Dead

Following an unarmed couple fleeing a routine traffic stop in Cleveland back in December 2012, a total of 104 police officers — that’s right, one hundred and four — joined in a 25-minute pursuit where 13 officers fired a total of 137 bullets at the couple and their car. The driver, Timothy Russell, was shot 23 times and the passenger, Malissa Williams, was shot 24 times. While some speculated that the two may have been armed at the very least to garner such a forceful response, no actual weapons were recovered from either person or the vehicle.

Hayden’s Note:

This is the result of the War on Drugs mentality, as well as the influx of military veterans-turned-police officer. As for the argument of the couple using their vehicle as a “deadly weapon”, Courts have ruled on this issue time and time again, saying that police officers have a duty to try and escape the path of a vehicle being used as a weapon, and only using force if no other alternative is available.

I’ve been saying this since September, 2005, when I was a New Orleans Police Officer. I saw the incrementalism then and spoke out against it, and I now see it moving full steam ahead eight years later.

In several phone conversations with readers, friends, and like-minded thinkers, I explained, in detail, how the Federal Government was using New Orleans as a “test bed” for militarization of domestic law enforcement. After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, I pointed out that the Feds were coaxing local, county, and state governments into getting in lock-step. They offered millions of dollars for departments to purchase new uniforms – but only in midnight navy blue – as well as offering fleets of new vehicles, as long as they followed Fed guidelines for certain markings and lights, as well as massive caches of new weapons and Homeland Security-approved radios. Sure, it’s great for interoperability… but with that carrot on the stick comes a price. It comes attached with a new attitude, a new perspective, and a new master....

The Surveillance State: How the War on Drugs and the War on Terror Go Hand in Hand

The philosophical underpinnings of America have traditionally been based on constraining the federal government through the interpretation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Americans though, have willingly given up their rights based on security concerns, fear and perception of crime.

These fears have largely been driven by politicians, the media and “the crime du jour” which sensationalizes horrific events with the promise that one more law will fix our communities, or save America from terrorists. These public safety security concerns started with the Drug War and have expanded in a further deterioration of our civil liberties in the post 9/11 decade.

The War on Terror is now firmly entrenched in American life. This permanent emergency has been supported in large part because of policy interests that create fear and juxtapose that fear to patriotism. This creates a paradigm unprecedented in our society as Americans have accepted limiting their rights based not on facts, or critical analysis of a policy and what it is designed to do, but on sound bites and rhetoric....

Two members of the FBI’s elite counterterrorism and hostage rescue team died Friday while practicing how to quickly drop from a helicopter to a ship using a rope (fast roping), the FBI announced Monday in a statement. The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to indicate the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.”

Last month, the team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

In closely related news, via Wired:

An FBI agent shot and killed an Orlando man and former mixed-martial arts fighter believed to be tied to Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect. Ibragim Todashev allegedly confessed to being involved in the murder of three people just before he was shot to death today by the FBI, sources told NBC News.

During a post-midnight interview with Ibragim Todashev at his apartment, an FBI agent shot Todashev. An interview with Todashev about his connections to Tsarnaev began peacefully, with Todashev reportedly cooperating, before taking a fatal turn for unclear reasons....

Former LAPD Officer Brings Unconventional Warfare to the Thin Blue Line; UPDATE

In yet another story detailing how police officers are leaning towards the trend of shooting first and asking questions later, two women were shot by LAPD officers searching for murder suspect and former police officer Christopher Dorner.  Dorner is accused of murdering the daughter and future son-in-law of former LAPD Captain Randy Quan, who defended Dorner at the disciplinary hearing in which he was expelled from the police force.

Dorner left a lengthy manifesto on his Facebook page detailing his plans to terminate those responsible for his firing. In it, he alleges that he was fired by the corrupt Los Angelos Police Department who were seeking to silence his whistleblowing attempts.

The former cop and Navy Reservist made it quite clear that he was gunning for members of the police department when he wrote, “I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty.”

Law enforcement engaged in a shootout with Dorner shortly after the killing of Captain Quan’s daughter, which ended with Dorner wounding one officer and forcing another to retreat after riddling their patrol car with bullets....

[Video] Police Shoot Man 3 Times Immediately Upon Entering House: Hayden’s Note & the Failed War on Drugs

Posted on Feb 05, 2013 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

A joint drug task force from Weber and Morgan county, Utah, executed a search warrant on Todd Blair’s house on September 16th, 2010, resulting in the shooting death of Blair only two seconds after entry was made.

The “Weber-Morgan Strike Force” initiated an investigation into Blair’s residence with a focus on his roommate, Melanie Chournos. Police stated in their application for warrant that Ms. Chournos would likely destroy evidence upon their arrival, and requested a night time, “no-knock warrant” for the squirrely female.  However, prior to the raid, law enforcement became aware of the fact Blair’s roommate had moved out of the house.  With warrant already in hand, or rather, still back at the police station, the Strike Force decided to conduct the night time raid anyway.

Friends and family of Mr. Blair plainly admit to his drug usage, but said he was a drug addict and not a drug dealer.

After the SWAT team hit the door three times in an attempt to open it, and as the video clearly shows, Mr. Blair appears in a far hallway, shirtless, and with a golf club in his hands....

Gunfighters, Gear, and Instagram: the IG Militia

Posted on Feb 02, 2013 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Featured Articles, Police, Military, & War, Social Networking

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Instagram is a form of social media that focuses on sharing pictures between users, allowing them to tag photos with names of other users and apply “hashtags” that function as searchable keywords or descriptions for others. It is no longer just a place to post pictures of your food!

One such hashtag that has a rather large following is #igMilitia. It stands for the InstaGram Militia, and started as a way for various photos of guns, gear, and generally tacti-cool stuff to be lumped together and easily found.

Since I’m always looking for new gear when it comes to firearms, outdoor activities, and training, I thought I would share a list of some of the small businesses and personalities that really seem to have an impact on the shooting community and “igMilitia”, whether it be tactical, law enforcement, military, or purely civilian and self defense.

Many of these you’ve likely never heard of, but I believe in supporting original entrepreneurs and small start-ups, so if you know of any others that should be added to this list, please feel free to leave a comment!...

Sheriff Says 911 Isn’t Best Option; Safety No Longer a Spectator Sport, “I Need You in the Game”

Posted on Jan 29, 2013 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Milwaukee area Sheriff David Clarke released a public service announcement urging citizens to seek firearm training and fight back against the criminal elements that seek to do them harm.

In the PSA, Sheriff Clarke cites recent police cutbacks and layoffs, along with mentioning prolonged police arrival times and that calling 911 might not be in your best interest initially.  Sheriff Clarke encourages his constituents to “be prepared”, and candidly states that their safety is no longer a spectator sport; he needs them in the game alongside his deputies.

“…your safety — it’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game.”

He goes on to offer three choices for would-be victims: beg for mercy from violent criminals, hide under the bed, or fight back!

“It’s your duty to protect yourself and your family,” he says. “We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

Sheriff Clarke has been receiving an onslaught of complaints and calls for his resignation from various groups, along with the President of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association, Roy Felber, suggesting the public service announcement is more closely aligned to a call for vigilantism....

Hayden’s Note: Military Helicopters Terrorize Houston, “Warzone” – The New Normal

The sight of Army helicopters and the sound of gunfire created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.

With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn’t know what to think.

“…it sounds like we’re in a war zone. Guns, shooting, helicopters flying around the house,’” Isaac Robertson Jr. said.

The U.S. Army, along with other agencies, took over the old Carnegie Vanguard High School near Scott and Airport. There were armed men in fatigues, plenty of weapons and what many thought were real live rounds.

“I felt like I was in a warzone.” Jerrals said. “It was nonstop. I was terrified.”

“If it’s to protect our kids, I’m all for it,” neighbor Glenn DeWitt said. 

Hayden’s Note:

THIS is the problem. Fear mongering, complacency, and a sheeple mentality: handing over all critical thinking skills and effort to the government will come with a heavy price. Mr. Glenn DeWitt believes that the US military is training to protect our school children.

Utility Workers and Police Trespass to Install Smart Meter, Arrest Home Owner [Video]

Posted on Jan 25, 2013 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Naperville, IL, resident Malia “Kim” Bendis and her neighbor were arrested on eavesdropping and resisting an officer charges after video recording two police officers and utility workers installing a “smart meter” – which have been linked to health issues – on her neighbor’s house.  The home owner, identified only as Laura, is clearly seen on video refusing consent for the utility workers and police to be on her property, along with expressing concerns for her child’s health and safety, but is threatened with arrest if she interferes.

What happened to 4th Amendment requirements? What happened to private property laws?

Why are the police masquerading as enforcing City Hall requirements when in reality, they are protecting a private company?

Illinois citizens are still being arrested for recording police officers despite a 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling last year that blocked the enforcement of the law on the grounds that it was unconstitutional.

The law, which made it a felony to record them, even while acting in their official role as a public servant – in public, where no expectation of privacy is considered – is highly illogical, especially in this particular case.  ...

Former SEAL: Dear Mr. Security Agent

Posted on Jan 23, 2013 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Excerpt from Matt Bracken’s Open Letter to Law Enforcement with Hayden’s Note at the end;

The unintended consequences of this misguided utopian fool’s crusade to ban guns would include a second civil war as agonizingly painful as the first one, if not more so, since there would be no front lines and no safe areas for anybody, anywhere. Every sane American wants to prevent such a calamitous outcome as a “dirty civil war” on United States soil.

But know this: those tens of millions will never be quietly disarmed and then later forced at government gunpoint onto history’s next boxcars. If boxcars and detention camps are to be in America’s future, then you, Mr. Security Agent, will have to disarm them the hard way first. Not Piers Morgan, not Dianne Feinstein, not Chuck Schumer.

You.

And so, if you find yourself silently dismounting a covert SWAT vehicle at zero-dark-thirty, dressed in body armor, counting down to the explosion of battering rams and flash-bang grenades, on a raid against a sleeping household intended to result in the confiscation of firearms, ammunition, or magazines that were legal to own in 2012, millions of Americans who also swore an oath to defend the Constitution will consider you their domestic enemy, and they will resist you with force of arms....

Private, For-Profit Corrections Corporation of America Used in Drug Sweep of Public School

Posted on Nov 29, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

While such “drug sweeps” have become a routine matter in many of the nation’s schools, along with the use of metal detectors and zero-tolerance policies, one feature of this raid was unusual.

According to Casa Grande Police Department (CGPD) Public Information Officer Thomas Anderson, four “law enforcement agencies” took part in the operation: CGPD (which served as the lead agency and operation coordinator), the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Gila River Indian Community Police Department, and Corrections Corporation of America (CCA).

It is the involvement of CCA — the nation’s largest private, for-profit prison corporation — that causes this high school “drug sweep” to stand out as unusual; CCA is not, despite CGPD’s evident opinion to the contrary, a law enforcement agency.

Hayden’s Note:

Companies such as CCA are literally traded on Wall Street according to the number of prisoners they have in their “custody.” Think about that for a minute and let it really sink in.

“To invite for-profit prison guards to conduct law enforcement actions in a high school is perhaps the most direct expression of the ‘schools-to-prison pipeline’ I’ve ever seen,” said Caroline Isaacs, program director of the Tucson office of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker social justice organization that advocates for criminal justice reform....

Heavily Armed Police Raid Organic Farm, Conduct Illegal Search: “He’s a Constitutionalist.”

Posted on Oct 10, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

On August 16th, 2012, in a sleepy Idaho farm town, heavily-armed members of the Gem County Sheriff’s Office conducted an illegal search of a residence after receiving a domestic violence complaint from a neighbor.

After pulling the occupants from the house at gunpoint, displaying rude and discourteous behavior, and then illegally searching the entire house, along with personal effects, deputies discover what they believed to be a marijuana “grow room.”  One intelligent deputy suddenly has an epiphany, as heard in the video below at 05:20, “We’ll need to get a warrant for this.”

Little late for that, eh?  Funny enough, the grow room turns out to be an aquaponics system for the couple’s organic tomatoes.

But let’s back this scenario up a bit.

Police are enroute to a domestic violence complaint, and 911 transcripts indicate one deputy warning another that the subject of the complaint is a “Constitutionalist.”  Apparently, some of that Federal Fusion Center training did sink in!  It’s okay to politically profile those who follow the words on our Founding document.  Better gear up for a SWAT-entry!...

Hayden’s Note: The Educational Model, Personal Satisfaction, and Finding a Job

Posted on Sep 19, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

I was posting to Facebook earlier this morning and realized that I run a blog with over 200,000 readers, and yet never truly “blog.”

I’d like to get to know my readers better, and in return, I suppose I will let you get to know me better!

As many of you know, I am a former New Orleans police officer.  After five years, including experiencing the social collapse and prolonged grid-down scenario during Hurricane Katrina, I no longer wanted to be a cog in the great machine of the police state.  My political ideas had started to take hold in early 2007, and by the beginning of 2009, I realized I could not fulfill my role as a law enforcement officer and maintain a clear conscience.

I left New Orleans and moved to Oklahoma in order to pursue a dream of building an off-grid homestead using alternative architecture, such as shipping containers, and arrived here with a job in hand providing corporate and executive security within the oil and gas sector.  I then moved into a senior position as an investigator, and recently separated from the company.  ...
