Telecom Tower

Every now and then people think I am a little paranoid about big brother watching us. That is why I started researching about covert cell phone towers. The more I research, the more I do not feel so paranoid.

Recently I have written two articles in reference to the U.S. Government using unorthodox methods to ease drop on law abiding American citizens. The articles are titled “Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American” and “Are you under Electronic Surveillance?” Both articles were recently published by M.S.O. There were a lot of comments about both of the above mentioned articles. I decided to do a little further research on the topic. It is amazing what you can learn with a little research.

In an article titled, “Congress demands answers on feds’ cellphone tracking by simulator towers.” (See Reference article # 1) it states that “the Justice Department is targeting criminal suspects using the devices. These devices mimic cellphone towers and can also snag information and general phone locations of innocent Americans.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee wants question answered about those cell site simulators being used and the capture potential information other than the specific information listed in the paperwork obtained from the courts. These cell simulators capture all the electronic communications from all cell phone type devices in the area that the cover.

New statistics released by the NYPD showing an increase in homicides and shootings are more proof that gun control and the so-called SAFE Act has not made New York City any safer.

“Elected officials from the Governor on down touted the supposed benefits to public safety the SAFE Act would bring,” NYSRPA President Tom King said. “The gun control lobby followed them up with unsubstantiated claims a lazy media did not bother to investigate. Yet when the facts come out disproving their assertions, both the politicians and antigun lobbyists are silent.”

King concluded, “Here’s my suggestion to the New York media: Track down all those SAFE supporters and ask them, in light of the evidence, to justify their position.”

In January 2013, one month after the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) successfully pressed for the SAFE Act, a massive body of gun control legislation aimed at curbing violent crime. Just two years later, however, the number of shootings and murders have increased.

According to NY1, NYPD reported “151 shootings” in the first two months of 2015–a “20 percent increase” in the number of shootings in the first two months of 2014. There were also “54 murders in the first two months of the year,” which, too, represents a “20 percent” increase in the number of murders in the first two months of 2014.

The murder rate in New York City has spiked an alarming 20% in the first two months of the year, prompting NYPD brass to rethink strategy to curb the deadly trend.

Since Jan. 1, 54 murders have been recorded in the city, up nine from the same period a year ago, according to the grim stats released Monday.

Shootings have also climbed 20% — with 149 so far in 2015 compared with 126 in the first two months of 2014.

Michael Youlen stopped a driver in a Manassas apartment complex on a recent night and wrote the man a ticket for driving on a suspended license. With a badge on his chest and a gun on his hip, Youlen gave the driver a stern warning to stay off the road.

The stop was routine police work, except for one fact: Youlen is not a Manassas officer. The citation came courtesy of the private force he created that, until recently, he called the “Manassas Junction Police Department.”

He is its chief and sole officer.

He is a force of one.

NY SAFE Act “Ammunition Database” Unfinished – AR15 Registration to Start

The state is still struggling to design a program that would create a database for background checks on ammunition sales that was part of New York’s controversial gun-control law in 2013.

State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico testified at a budget hearing Thursday that the database approved as part of the SAFE Act remains a work in progress.

The provision was considered a key part of the law because gun dealers could run a background check on anyone buying ammunition in New York. The initial plan was to have it up and running in January 2014, but it remains mired in technology issues, D’Amico told lawmakers.

“We continue to work on this,” D’Amico said. “I think that the solution is a technology solution, if there is one. Currently, we don’t have anything in place.”

About 80 percent of cops retrained after Eric Garner’s death called the three-day Police Academy program a “waste of time,” and many fell asleep in their seats, says a high-ranking NYPD official.

A day after The Post revealed that a goofball department bigwig wanted to arm officers with breath mints as part of sweeping reforms, a disgusted member of the brass revealed that much more is wrong with the program.

The veteran boss said that the $35 million “smart policing” primer is a flop, and that eight out of every 10 cops give it negative reviews when they finish the training.

Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson orders detectives on his security detail to pick up his meals and dry cleaning and do other menial chores — and if they refuse, they’re assigned to dead-end cases, current and former law-enforcement sources charge.

Thompson has already reassigned 15 members from the detail, which consists mostly of DA Squad investigators — a team of highly skilled detectives, many former NYPD, who would normally probe organized crime, narcotics, cold-case homicides and other vital cases, sources told The Post.

But many of these gumshoes were put on Thompson’s personal security squad, including an ­“advance team” that scopes out venues before the Democratic district attorney arrives.

Palm Beach County, Florida – Journalists at the DC Post were looking through message boards that are frequented by law enforcement officers, when they found a post where one officer was causally talking about planting evidence on “mouthy drivers” and “street lawyers.”

The Post then contacted the officer and conducted an anonymous interview with him where he revealed his disturbing perspective.

The officer revealed the illegal and unethical actions that he is proud of taking on the job. The DC Post has also said that they have verified the officer’s position with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, and they have verified many of the claims that he has made.

DOJ Announces It Will Not Pursue Civil Rights Charge Against George Zimmerman

The Department of Justice announced today that it will not pursue a federal civil rights charge against George Zimmerman, arising out of his fatal altercation with Trayvon Martin. That was pretty much a foregone conclusion, but the Associated Press took the opportunity to revisit the case:

George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in a 2012 confrontation with the teenager, will not face federal charges, the Justice Department said Tuesday. …

Zimmerman has said he acted in self-defense when he shot the 17-year-old Martin during a confrontation inside a gated community in Sanford, Florida, just outside Orlando. Martin, who was black, was unarmed when he was killed.

Not only did Zimmerman say that he acted in self-defense, the jury in the case so found. The physical evidence, including wounds to the back of Zimmerman’s head, along with the testimony of the only eyewitness, who saw Martin sitting on top of Zimmerman and pounding his head into the pavement, virtually compelled that finding. And here is a news flash for the liberal media: you have a right to defend yourself against an unarmed person who is beating the daylights out of you, or who you reasonably believe will do so.

WaPo: Europe Proves Expanded Background Checks Useless

While Democrats, Gabby Giffords, and groups like Moms Demand Action claim that expanding background checks would end mass shootings, The Washington Post looks across the pond and demonstrates that Europe’s expanded background checks prove useless in the face of a booming black market for guns and radicalized Muslims looking to commit terrorist acts.

After all, Europe has expanded background checks and enacted near-total gun bans in certain countries, but the Paris and Copenhagen attacks still took place.

According to WaPo, in Denmark “handguns and semiautomatic rifles are all but banned.” And hunting rifles can only be owned by people “with squeaky-clean backgrounds who have passed a rigorous exam covering everything from gun safety to the mating habits of Denmark’s wildlife.”

NYPD’s idea of reform included breath mints and baby oil (NOT Satire)

Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered sweeping reforms for the NYPD after the Eric Garner death — but his demands were handled by a goofball police bigwig whose ideas included arming cops with breath mints and spraying protesters with baby oil, sources revealed Thursday.

Michael Julian, who was appointed deputy commissioner of training in November, lasted just two months on the job before his ridiculed proposals got him transferred out, the sources said.

“He would come up with these wacky ideas. We would roll our eyes and move on,” a police source said.

The last straw came in late January — less than a week before Julian was reassigned — when a box of 10,000 individually wrapped breath mints arrived at headquarters.

Julian explained to skeptical cops that officers should pop mints in their mouth when they feel the need to curse, police sources said.

The district attorney is seeking criminal charges against the two officers who shot and killed James Boyd last spring.

Police said officers Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez fatally shot Boyd last year.

District Attorney Kari Brandenburg submitted paperwork Monday to move the case forward. The next step would be a preliminary hearing, where prosecutors would make their case to go to a full trial. A judge would have the final say on whether the case moves forward.

“In this case we do believe that we have probable cause,” Brandenburg said.

The DA is seeking murder charges.

You have all heard the story of Dale Norman, the man in Fort Pierce who walked out of his house with his freshly minted Florida concealed carry license and was arrested because he did not realize his firearm was partially exposed.

The local judge denied any and all constitutional arguments to have the case thrown out, and the court convicted Norman.

According to the non-profit, non-partisan, and grassroots organization, Florida Carry, which is also helping to fund Mr. Norman’s defense, “The County Court judge also did not fully consider the Second Amendment or the Right to Bear Arms under the Florida Constitution; denying those motions to dismiss the case because the question of the right to bear arms “is for someone above the level of this court.”
