Shadowhawk: New Police UAV Can Deploy Taser, Shotgun or Grenades from the Sky

The ShadowHawk is the seven-foot, 50-lb copter that is the toy-sized dealer of destruction from Texas-based Vanguard Defense Industries. The copter is the result of three years of development.

If being tased from above sounds frightening to you, I suggest you cease all criminal activities now (simply staying indoors is an option). There’s a good chance ShadowHawk’s spine tingling buzz could be heard approaching a city near you. As a sign of new law enforcement tactics to come, the Sheriff’s Office of Montgomery County, Texas was recently awarded a grant by the Department of Homeland Security for a squadron of ShadowHawks.

Montgomery County’s Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel is psyched. “We are very excited about the funding and looking forward to placing the equipment into the field. Both my narcotics and SWAT units have been looking at numerous ways to deploy it and I absolutely believe it will become a critical component on all SWAT callouts and narcotics raids and emergency management operations.”

It also comes with the option of turbine or piston engines, thermal cameras, range fingers, and laser pointers....

Lone Wolf False Flag or Real Mumbai-Style Active Shooters?

Posted on Aug 17, 2011 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Featured Articles

Kevin Hayden –

As the media and Spokesman-in-Chief, President Obama, warn us of a “lone wolf terrorist event” on or around September 11th, I can’t help but think back at all of the articles I’ve written or posted regarding a ‘Mumbai-style Attack’ or an active shooter scenario such as Arizona’s Jared Loughner and the Oslo, Norway event.  Many on the far-right continue to believe that this incident will portray a typical causcasian of the conservative swagger to be the trigger man in an effort to further demonize the “Patriot movement” (which has withered into the Old Republican Guard 2.0, ala George Bush’esque Rick Perry and Palin’s successor: war-mongering, former IRS tax prosecutor Michelle Bachman) and alleviate pressure on the Middle East and “Obama’s homeland.”

It seems that most of the Neocon-hijacked Tea Party members have nothing better to do than continue the fruitless Obama bashing.  We’re ALL aware of his dismal track record, the questions surrounding his past and how deep he is in Wall Street and Chicago’s pockets.  Can we move on, now?

The auditing or elimination of the Federal Reserve should be the priority of every conservative AND liberal candidate, along with restoring the Glass-Steagall Act. ...

16 DC Police Officers Arrested So Far This Year – Hayden’s Note Attached

Posted on Jun 17, 2011 in Police, Military, & War – Kevin Hayden

Numbers recently released by the Metropolitan Police Department show 16 DC police officers have been arrested this year so far, that’s compared to 17 all of last year.

MPD Chief Cathy Lanier is attributing the number of arrests mainly to two things: a troubling economy and an aggressive approach from the department’s Internal Affairs division to go after officers suspected of wrong doing.

Lanier said, “It’s extremely unfortunate that we have people who have decided to tarnish the badge that they wear…but I think it’s also a positive thing that we have not only police officers that are willing to tell on other officers, but we have an aggressive Internal Affairs division. All of these members have been arrested by us.”

Hayden’s Note:

Is it just me, or are cases involving police officer corruption and malfeasance on the rise?  There have been 20+ police officers indicted or convicted from the New Orleans Police Department, ranging from an execution-style murder of a mentally handicapped person after Hurricane Katrina, to random shootings, thefts, drug trafficking, rapes and sexual predators. ...

Miss America, the Milgram Experiment and the TSA

Posted on Apr 26, 2011 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Featured Articles – Kevin Hayden

Matt Gordon of – Truth Contributing Writer

Many of you have likely heard of Susie Castillo or seen her face at one time or another. According to her official website, Susie is an “actress and television personality,” most notably working as a VJ on MTV, hosting a show called “School Pride” for NBC…oh, and she was Miss USA in 2003. Pretty all-American, wouldn’t you say? I mean, does it get any more American than being crowned Miss-frickin-USA!?

Well, tell that to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Susie posted a blog on her website yesterday featuring a video she recorded just moments after a TSA lackey groped her private parts four times. In the video (posted below), Susie is visibly shaken, flustered and crying at times. And rightfully so! What right do these Milgram monkeys have to grope another person?

You’re probably asking yourself what a “Milgram monkey” is, right? Well, it’s a name I just came up with, but it’s based on a little-known experiment called “The Milgram Experiment.” So what exactly was the Milgram Experiment?...

The Tyranny of Traffic Enforcement

Posted on Apr 12, 2011 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts – Kevin Hayden


Is traffic enforcement getting out of control?


* Many states have “asset forfeiture” laws that permit the seizure of your vehicle if, for example, a little marijuana (or other arbitrarily “controlled”) substance is found during a traffic stop, including those probable-cause-free “checkpoints” that cops now use to make such seizures even easier.

Whatever you may think about pot smokers – or other-than-allowed-drug-use in general – it seems a bit much to expropriate personal property that in many cases is worth tens of thousands of dollars because a guy had some grass (or whatever) on him. Note: Not smoking the stuff; just having it on him. As a mental experiment, imagine a cop just taking your car (and taking you to jail) because he popped the trunk and found you had a case of wine back there. What’s the difference? One’s “controlled” and the other’s not. (Personal note: I don’t smoke pot or consume legal drugs – alcohol and tobacco. Well, I do drink a clot of coffee. Still, this isn’t advocacy of “substance abuse.” It’s advocacy of sanity.)

Violent criminals – who often have no assets to seize – probably suffer far less in terms of actual punishment....

Surge in Killings of Police – List of Recent Headlines

Posted on Jan 24, 2011 in Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden –

In the last several days, more than a dozen police officers have been shot or killed across the country in brazen attacks.  These include a Wal-Mart shootout, a firefight involving a barricaded suspect, convicted felon shooting a cop in the face several times and an active shooter who walked into a police station and started shooting.  Is it merely a cycle?  Last year saw 162 police officers give up their life in the line of duty.  We are on a fast-track to surpass that this year.  Is it more representative of our current social climate?  Maybe it has to do with stress levels and the economy…?  Whatever it is, better tactics and constant training can prevent many unneeded law enforcement deaths.

Two St. Petersburg Officers Die After Shootout

Authorities and a fugitive holed up in an attic fired more than 100 shots at each other Monday in a firefight that killed two officers, wounded a deputy U.S. marshal and led to an hourslong standoff that ended when the suspect was found dead inside the home.

* Developing *

Four police officers in Detroit’s Northwestern District were shot this afternoon when a gunman came in and opened fire, the Free Press has learned.

According to Sgt. Todd Eby, the gunman walked in at about 4:20 p.m. with a pistol grip shotgun. Unprovoked, he just started shooting, said Eby, who was sitting at his desk when the gunfire erupted.

Eby said officers in the building returned fire, killing the man.

Shot were Commander Brian Davis, Sgt. Ray Saati and Officer David Anderson, police said. A fourth person, a female sergeant whose name was not released, was also hit. The four have been transported to Sinai Grace hospital in Detroit.

Eby called the incident “absolutely horrifying.”

Michigan State Police are at the scene blocking traffic.

Tina Taylor, a spokeswoman for Sinai Grace hospital said no information was being released about wounded officers and that all details would have to come from Detroit police....

2nd Most Dangerous City Lays Off Half the Police Force

Posted on Dec 03, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Camden City Council, as expected, voted Thursday to lay off almost 400 workers, half of them police officers and firefighters, to bridge a $26.5 million deficit.

That’s about a quarter of the city’s entire work force.

Five members of City Council voted unanimously to approve the layoff plan — two other members were absent. The cuts take effect in mid-January.

Hayden’s Note:

How can you possibly lay off that much of your city work force, especially the police and fire services, and have almost 1/3 of your Council absent? 

walco Camden City Council Approves Massive Police And Fire LayoffsExactly how many city workers will be affected is still an open question, although nearly half the city’s police and a third of the firefighters are slated to go.

Karl Walco (right) is with the union that represents non-uniformed Camden city workers.

“If we agreed to everything that the city proposed in concessions, it would only have a minor impact on the number of layoffs,” Walco told the council members.

No argument from Council. They sat impassively as workers and residents alike voiced their frustration.

When it was over, Council president Frank Moran suggested they’re not to blame....

While this is a bit dated – June/July of 2010 – Many people did not see this story nor were so many pictures available.  Take notice of who these soldiers are detaining and fighting with.  Within this article, the term “insurgent” is used multiple times.  Insurgent = Protestor.  Cheers~

District Attorney Sends Deputies to SF Airport to Investigate Felony Sexual Assault and TSA Groping

Posted on Nov 18, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: Activist Post

Incoming Chief Deputy DA of San Mateo, Steve Wagstaffe, said his office will prosecute TSA employees who engage in lewd and lascivious behavior while conducting Homeland Security mandated patdowns at the San Francisco International Airport in San Mateo County.

“The case would be reviewed and if we could prove the elements of it, that it was inappropriately done with a sexual or lewd intent, that person would be prosecuted,” Wagstaffe told the Berman Post on Tuesday.

Wagstaffe told Alex Jones that county police will be sent to into the San Francisco International Airport. If they witness TSA employees engaged in criminal conduct, they will make arrests and the DA’s office will prosecute. Sexual battery in Mateo County is a felony if the molestation occurs beneath clothing and makes contact with skin and a misdemeanor if the touching occurs outside clothing.

The new government mandated hands-on searches are used for passengers who find naked body inappropriate, when something suspicious appears in screening, or randomly. They can take two minutes per passenger and involve sliding of the hands along the length of the body, along thighs and near the groin and breasts, according to the Associated Press....

President Correa Rescued as Ecuador Capital Turns into Battleground

Posted on Oct 01, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: Russia Today

Soldiers in Ecuador have rescued President Rafael Correa from a police hospital where he was being held by force. The troops opened fire on dissident law enforcement officers. A state of emergency has been declared in the country following police protests against new government austerity measures, which would cut their benefits. Eva Golinger, an expert on Latin America, says the uprising may not have been spontaneous. She claims the revolt is strongly backed by business and political elements both inside and outside Ecuador.


Let’s put this in context –

Source: RawStory

Ecuador’s government declared a state of emergency Thursday saying rebel troops and police were staging a coup, after seizing the main airport and storming Congress in a mutiny over pay cuts.

About 150 renegade troops seized a runway at Ecuador’s international airport in the capital of the South American nation, as dozens of police protested against a new law which would strip them of some pay bonuses.

President Rafael Correa, 47, a leftist ally of his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez, swiftly denounced what he called a coup bid....

FBI Agents & Supervisors Cheat on Terrorism Exams, Hayden’s Note: Big Surprise

Posted on Sep 28, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations

Source: The Independent

FBI agents and several supervisors cheated in an exam about new rules for terrorism and criminal investigations and for collecting foreign intelligence, according to a US Justice Department report yesterday.

The report found that some FBI employees improperly consulted colleagues while taking the exam, and others used or distributed answer sheets or study guides that provided the answers to the test.

Hayden’s Note:

This is standard practice in law enforcement. This doesn’t suprise me in the slightest. Any “in-service training” or exams that have to be taken, such as this one, are typically administered in 8 or 16 hour blocks and either the trainer will pass around hand-outs with the answers highlighted or will literally tell officers/agents the answers during the course of the lecture. This is so common and normal within LE that I can’t believe it actually made the news. Obviously, I have had an inside scoop, but this seems like such a non-news story. But, I’ve had several emails suggesting this story, so here ya go!

The sad thing is that most officers don’t learn the course material during in-service training to begin with, let alone when they are given the answers....

Organized Rebellion and Police Brutality

Posted on Sep 26, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden

The purpose of this article is not to demean, exploit or belittle the fine work that most police officers do each and every day.  I wore a badge for 5 years in a very violent city and understand the physical and mental demands of the job.  I also recognize the lack of appreciation most officers get.

But sadly, many of our public servants – our peace officers – have become incomprehensible machines of random violence and oppression.  Most officers do not even realize how they are being used by their own Departments and cities to become Corporate Revenue Collectors and essentially, the country’s largest and most well-armed street gang. Furthermore, many of our police officers nowadays have combat experience in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. With that comes PTSD, instability and an exaggerated Alpha-male personality. These men and women have been trained over and over to kill; they have been shot at, blown up and invaded cities in the middle of the desert, day after day. And now we give them a uniform and ask them to patrol our streets?...

Department of Justice Lists Survivalists, Constitutionalists in Extremism Guide

Posted on Aug 26, 2010 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Featured Articles

Source: Public

A recent Department of Justice guide for investigators of criminal and extremist groups lists “constitutionalists” and “survivalists” alongside organizations like Al-Qaeda and the Aryan Brotherhood.  The 120-page, “Law Enforcement Sensitive” guide to “Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism – Terms and Concepts” describes itself as “a glossary designed primarily as a tool for criminal justice professionals to enhance their understanding of words relating to extremist terminology, phrases, activities, symbols, organizations, and selected names that they may encounter while conducting criminal investigations or prosecutions of members of extremist organizations.”

Constitutionalist, defined by Random House’s 2010 Dictionary as an “adherent or advocate of constitutionalism or of an existing constitution”, is described in the report as a “generic term for members of the ‘patriot’ movement”.  Survivalists are described in the document as fearing a “coming collapse of civilization” and are trying to prepare themselves for this collapse.  Such individuals are said to have “typically stockpiled food, water, and weapons, especially the latter, and instructed themselves on topics ranging from first aid to childbirth to edible plants”.

The guide defines the term “New World Order” as being “used by conspiracy theorists to refer to a global conspiracy designed to implement worldwide socialism”. ...

Ottawa Hills Police Officer Shoots Unarmed Motorcyclist: Includes Video & Hayden’s Shooting Analysis

Posted on May 14, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden –

Being a former police officer, I can’t help but offer my analysis of this traffic stop.  Many times, video cameras are the only way to learn from mistakes and are used extensively in law enforcement training.  Typically, Officers will review videos like this and discuss what happened, critique it, tear it apart and try to figure out what went wrong and why.

During my time on the streets, I dealt with dozens of potential shooting situations.  I came very close to pulling the trigger several times but luckily didn’t have to.  Some of those days I could have very easily called it justifiable.  Officers are given only a few milliseconds to determine life and death responses.  It takes a keen awareness of your surroundings, cover, and even concealment options to wear a gun everyday and enforce the law.  It’s my opinion that the Officer portrayed in the video is a rookie or has not encountered many felony stops in his career.

I say this for several reasons, most which are easy to say afterwards but I would still hope this Officer at least thought of these options before pulling the trigger. ...
