PA Judge, Uses Remarkable Ideas to Dismiss Complaint

This audio tape reveals a remarkable decision by a sitting Pennsylvania State Court Judge. It reminds me that all the damages are done in the lower courts, which get less scrutiny than the SCOTUS where the high minded ambitious attorneys focus their minds.

The parading atheists marched in the Mechanicsburg Halloween Parade on Oct 11, 2011 as the Zombie Messengers of God. Talaag, a Muslim, attacked a parade participant in defense of the Prophet of ISLAM. Blasphemy shall not be tolerated in the Borough of Mechanicsburg, PA.
This is the entire trial and we ask you to make your decision whether he acted appropriately or not and then call Judge Mark Martin at 717-766-4575.
He may hold me in contempt of court for releasing this audio. Please spread this video in celebration of FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN AMERICA!
I didn't speak out because the Judge ordered me to not release the audio and said I would violate section 112 of the Rules of Pennsylvania Court. However, this rule does not apply to me. I'm in the boundaries of the law and I'm tired of his contempt court bullying. I'm releasing the video and fully aware of the results that I could and will be illegaly jailed or fined under this action. FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN AMERICA is our founding rights.
No appeal is allowed since that would be double jeopardy.

Two Lynn MA Girls Fight, Bystanders Make Video

It should be no surprise that these students stood by, watched and made videos of the fight. It is what adults do in Massachusetts including but not limited to police, taxpayer funded human services professionals, an elected officials. It is the paradigm that replaced the Good Samaritan standard. Today adults in Massachusetts respond to similar situations when vulnerable persons are being abused wondering how they can benefit from the abuses. Spineless officials ignore the abuses even those with duty to act. In Massachusetts inconvenient laws are optional.

Mulisms Block Streets With Prayer

French government paralyzed by political correctness. Even more than Harvard University's faculty censoring unpopular speech with the support of the student newspaper editors, and their denial of black racism the French bring playing ostrich to a new level.

Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies

We feel instinctively that societies with huge income gaps are somehow going wrong. Richard Wilkinson charts the hard data on economic inequality, and shows what gets worse when rich and poor are too far apart: real effects on health, lifespan, even such basic values as trust.

In "The Spirit Level," Richard Wilkinson charts data that proves societies that are more equal are healthier, happier societies. Full bio »

Dan Rea and ACLUM's Kade Crockford Discuss High Tech Surveillance

On Feb 2, 2012 Kade Crockford (ACLU Massachusetts, Privacy Rights Coordinator) appeared on Dan Rea's Nightside WBZ radio show broadcast from Boston MA. She noted that the ACLU's focus is on government abuses of technology, referring concerns of private abuses to other consumer privacy groups. Query, How much difference is there between government and private in 2012? The FBI and police use informants who are often private criminals. Crime families, corporations and Communists have associates in and out of government. They talk to one another. Police ask crime families to do them favors, and vice versa. Likewise the FBI.

Ordinary citizens cannot defend themselves against technology to protect their rights and privacy. Crockford expressed curiosity that local, state and federal politicians, who she described as high profile, did not work to protect themselves from such technological abuses. Today's politicians work with, if not for, the police and the FBI. They are weak persons (often described as spineless) with relaxed rectitude, like their corporate contributors. They do not defend the Constitution as per their oaths of office. They go along to get along. They encourage technological abuses of citizens who criticize them too enthusiastically. Police and the FBI are unable or unwilling to enforce the few laws that do exist regarding technology. Mentioned on air was the use of thermal imaging by police and by private citizens. Local police claim ignorance of how to enforce the few laws that exist. They are, if their leadership is to be believed, clueless on how to enforce laws on technological abuses. That is negligent training, which is actionable. A US law prohibits exposing citizens to radiation, and carries a $2 million fine. How do civilians get that law enforced?

Crockford said the uses of red spotlights in East Orange, NJ should be discussed within the context of what else is going on in society with surveillance technology.

Talking CCTV cameras to be turned off
Camden Council has said its new generation of talking, closed-circuit TV cameras were 'activated by mistake' and will have their voices turned off.

The same argument must be made regarding the use of technology by both government and by private criminals, who are unlikely to respect Constitutional Rights of citizens they target. Massachusetts has a Civil Rights statute that makes acts of private individuals a felony if they intimidate a person in the free exercise of a constitutionally protected right. Technological abuses by police and the FBI must be discussed recognizing the blurring of the line between public and private. Police and crime families cooperate. The FBI and crime families cooperate. The FBI and Communists cooperate. Police and the FBI cooperate with corporations e.g., drug companies. Working with psychiatrists and psychologists using technology, drug corporations target critics of their dangerous drugs and taxpayer funded programs forcing drugs on civilians.

They all use the same technology. Crockford noted the difference between public and private saying the government can put you in jail. But crime families, corporations and Communists can also have police or the FBI put you in jail. Is the ACLU clueless about that happening? That is an unpleasant fact in the United States today. What is the difference whether technology is used by private criminals or police criminals to violate a person's rights? Police or the FBI can legally refuse to stop criminal abuses of technology because it suits them. There is no legal obligation which forces police to act. The effect is the same. The ACLU should reconsider its focus to include when the government uses private persons to avoid Constitutional protections, and when government refuses to stop the same private abuses of technology.
