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

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.  ...

Apple Moves One Step Closer Toward Location Based Camera Disabling nophoto mini

In June of last year, we reported on an unsettling patent filed by Apple that would allow certain infrared signals to remotely disable the camera on iPhones. It showed the potential downsides of bringing cameras into the world of wireless connectivity, which appears to be the next big thing in the camera industry. Now, a newly published patent is rekindling the fears of those who don’t want “Big Brother” controlling their devices.

U.S. Patent No. 8,254,902, published on Tuesday, is titled, “Apparatus and methods for enforcement of policies upon a wireless device.”

Hayden’s Note:

This will be used primarily for disabling of social networks and communication during civil unrest, protests, etc.

Texas and US Facing Growing Threat of Domestic IEDs; Congress Wants to Suspend Posse Comitatus?

Posted on Aug 04, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Improvised explosive devices have claimed the lives and limbs of thousands of American soldiers across Iraq and Afghanistan.

And now officials say the devilish devices are posing a growing threat across Texas and the United States.

The growing concern is prompting urgent cooperation between U.S. military experts who are familiar with the devices and civilian law enforcement officers who are not.

But legal restrictions on the activities of U.S. armed forces are slowing crucial collaboration, insiders complain. Federal laws dating back to the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 limit the use of U.S. armed forces in domestic law enforcement and training — impediments some members of Congress are pressing to change.

How convenient.

Louisiana is the World’s Prison Capital

Posted on May 14, 2012 in Police, Military, & War

Louisiana is the world’s prison capital. The state imprisons more of its people, per head, than any of its U.S. counterparts. First among Americans means first in the world. Louisiana’s incarceration rate is nearly triple Iran’s, seven times China’s and 10 times Germany’s.

The hidden engine behind the state’s well-oiled prison machine is cold, hard cash. A majority of Louisiana inmates are housed in for-profit facilities, which must be supplied with a constant influx of human beings or a $182 million industry will go bankrupt.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a product of the War on Drugs, poor education, and corrupt public officials who fail at managing money, all the while lining their own pockets.  Fact.

Several homegrown private prison companies command a slice of the market. But in a uniquely Louisiana twist, most prison entrepreneurs are rural sheriffs, who hold tremendous sway in remote parishes like Madison, Avoyelles, East Carroll and Concordia. A good portion of Louisiana law enforcement is financed with dollars legally skimmed off the top of prison operations.

If the inmate count dips, sheriffs bleed money....

Metro Bus Program: Undercover TSA Agents Searching Bags, Interrogating Passengers

Posted on Apr 18, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity,” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe.

Hayden’s Note:

Welcome to the Police State.  Officers will now search your bags, question your motives, and invade your constitutional privacy in the name of preventing “terrorism” on buses and trains, via the criminal-laden TSA.  In reality, it is a conditioning effort.

It would not end pretty if I were riding the bus and was harassed by TSA goons, frisked without probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion, and questioned as if I were a common thug. I would likely end up in jail with severe injuries.  Let’s see… 1st, 4th, and 5th Amendment violations so far…

“While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise,” states the press release....

DHS & Obama to Grant Illegal Aliens “Unlawful Presence Waivers” – Hayden’s Note

Posted on Apr 04, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.”

Hayden’s Note:

As a police officer, I was instructed by the New Orleans Mayor’s Office, via the Superintendent of Police, to stop arresting illegal aliens that I encountered during traffic stops. I was warned several times, with each subsequent warning more stern until a suspension was threatened and a General Order issued from Police Headquarters barring any officer from future arrests of illegal aliens.

However, in Louisiana, it is a criminal act to operate a motor vehicle without a lawful presence within the United States. New Orleans has always been the test-bed for future political experiments and Homeland Security, police-state funding.

The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S.

Video: Cop Arrests NBC Reporters, “Your First Amendment Right Can Be Terminated”

Two NBC journalists were handcuffed and threatened by Chicago police after attempting to report on the murder of a 6-year-old girl yesterday, NBC Chicago reports.

Police were called to the hospital shortly after reporters arrived on the scene. The journalists said they has already moved away from a public sidewalk and across the street at the request of the police.

One police officer was then caught on camera telling other members of the media, “Your First Amendment right can be terminated if you’re creating a scene… or whatever. Your First Amendment right has got limitations.”

Watch the video:

When the reporters asked for clarification on how they were creating a scene, the officer replied, “Your presence is creating a scene.”

“This is what we do for a living!” one reporter replied, before another added, “You’ve got a lawsuit coming!”

“I don’t care about no damn lawsuit!” the officer fired back. “F*ck a lawsuit. Just ’cause you sue doesn’t mean you’re going to win.”

Photographer Donte Williams and WGN Reporter Dan Ponce were then handcuffed and briefly detained by the officer, who threatened them with trespassing charges....

For more than two years, Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded every roll call at the 81st Precinct in Brooklyn and captured his superiors urging police officers to do two things in order to manipulate the “stats” that the department is under pressure to produce: Officers were told to arrest people who were doing little more than standing on the street, but they were also encouraged to disregard actual victims of serious crimes who wanted to file reports.

Arresting bystanders made it look like the department was efficient, while artificially reducing the amount of serious crime made the commander look good.

Hayden’s Note:

It would pain you to realize how “normal” this is within large police departments.  They are continually chasing Federal dollars, so “arrest stats” and crime statistics are routinely altered, falsified, or petty arrests are used to gain “numbers” while violent crimes and major robberies are downplayed as simple thefts, etc.

In October 2009, Schoolcraft met with NYPD investigators for three hours and detailed more than a dozen cases of crime reports being manipulated in the district....

FBI Created Fake Company, Hired Lobbyists in Order to Investigate Oklahoma Legislature

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

The Oklahoman’s investigative team (the state newspaper) is out with a story in the Sunday edition that details how the FBI formed a fake company in Georgia, used undercover agents, and hired lobbyist Andrew Skeith in an investigation of the Oklahoma Legislature. (!)

The investigation, apparently, produced no results.

Nolan Clay and Robby Trammell report the company was formed in 2008.  The company, Road Safety International LLC, allegedly produced highway safety products.

Hayden’s Note:

I will stay with this story and provide any updates as I discover them. This is a disturbing headline for two reasons.  First, I find it amazing that the Department of Justice went to such elaborate ends to form a front-company in order to possibly entrap Oklahoma Congressmen into conducting unethical or illegal acts, and secondly, that the FBI had enough probable cause reasonable suspicion to conduct this sting in the first place. 

Either way, you have an over-bearing Federal Executive Brach that is using the paramilitary police state to investigate a State’s Legislative Branch or merely a true, corrupt Congress. ...

The Justice Department is funding an unusual national training program to help police deal with an increasing number of volatile confrontations involving highly trained and often heavily armed combat veterans.

Developers of the pilot program, to be launched at 15 U.S. sites this year, said there is an “urgent need” to de-escalate crises in which even SWAT teams may be facing tactical disadvantages against mentally ill suspects who also happen to be trained in modern warfare.

“We just can’t use the blazing-guns approach anymore when dealing with disturbed individuals who are highly trained in all kinds of tactical operations, including guerrilla warfare,” said Dennis Cusick, executive director of the Upper Midwest Community Policing Institute. “That goes beyond the experience of SWAT teams.”

This begs the question, “What did you think would happen when kids are brainwashed into slaughtering civilians or going back for 4+ tours in a war zone?”

What did you expect these soldiers to do for a living when they return home?  What did you think might occur to sufferers of PTSD?...

The Police State Responds: Kevin Hayden Receives Threats for Speaking Out Against Police Corruption

Posted on Jan 19, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Update at end –

In a follow-up to my recent interview on Adam vs. the Man, it would appear as though many police officers within the New Orleans Police Department are … upset … with what I said.  I’ve received threats, comments, condemning messages, and more from many officers that I once considered friends or colleagues.  The subject and rhetoric of many of these messages resonates with cognitive dissonance, suggesting that I’m the bad guy for talking about these subjects, or that I have an agenda by speaking out against the police state.

Well, they are partially correct.  My agenda is to awaken the average person to just how corrupt their police department truly is.  It is truly unfathomable for most, including some police officers.  They have blinders on, not even recognizing the injustices that they perpetrate.  I have found that the common person is shocked by what I once considered a daily routine, or normal practice, as a police officer and that needs to change.  Light needs to be cast upon the shadows within law enforcement, and especially within the ranks of the New Orleans Police Department. ...

Former Police Officer

“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306.

This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v....
