“If you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear.”

Filed under: General Discussion — bobfunke @ 2:26

Over the years we’ve heard that little lie time after time. Generally, it comes from WWII movies or old cop flicks; point is, everyone has “done something wrong”‘ even if it is an illusion the cops decided upon.

We all have secrets, things we don’t even speak of those we trust the most, we do this for various reasons, but generally speaking, we keep our secrets out of a sense of embarrassment or misunderstanding. During a face to face discussion there is a lot of innuendo, it is easier to “read” the person. When we touch a tender mental spot, we can back off, change the subject or just get up and go for a walk.

This changes dramatically when law enforcement enters the picture. The “one line mind” takes over, you must be guilty of something, even if it is not the primary cause for initiating an investigation. Most people investigated have done noting to initiate said investigations, the police are fishing for clues, such as witnesses or people who know suspects.

Now we live in a different world, one that scares the hell out of everyone who knows any part of the most recent police policies and capabilities. I’m willing to be you didn’t know your windows act like parabolic listening devices. The Russians found this out in the 1950’s. By using parabolic dishes, they could hear just about everything in the US embassy, with pretty good clarity too. I owned a parabolic device I bought in  Radio Shack 20 years ago, I could clearly hear conversations at 100 yards and more.

This piece delves into some of what we know law enforcement has now, from the NSA, CIA, FBI on down to local PD’s. First the is “Stellar Wind” which picks up every electronic signal in the world, (go ahead Google it, the storage space is in Utah), and it is in use today There is also PRISM, BRIC, facial recognition, illegal wiretaps both  here and abroad. The CIA, by law cannot be used in the US, but it is; everything changed under the Patriot Act and the subsequent additions to the dreadful laws. We are about as close to a police state as a “democracy” can be, and we are no safer than before all of this stuff started.

The radicals on 9-11won, we lost our last vestige of freedom as bush hid in a bunker in Nebraska. The Patriot Act had already been pieced together, all that was needed was a catalyst; the nightmare of 9-11 lit the fuse.

Hundreds of billions went not just to the military, but to law enforcement as well. PD’s could buy body armor, wheeled and tracked vehicles to storm possible terrorist hideouts…(how many have there been?) Of course, good old fashioned police work most likely would have caught the Boston Marathon bombers long before they did their damage, if we were not so dependent upon high end tech stuff. Lazers, tazers, M-16’s and armor piercing bullets. Come to think of it, no one told the kid to come out of the boat or lift the tarp and pull him out; it was as assassination attempt with over 100 bullet holes in the boat, trying to kill rather than capture the perpetrator. For the record, the PD’s really need to take up some serious firearms training…>100 rounds and they missed the kid. By the way, does law enforcement owe the owner of the boat a new one?

Your chance of being hit in a terrorist attack is close to nil. Sadly, some do and pay with life and limb. But it is all about scaring people. Once the incident is over, people dig in their heels, and allow the police to do what they do best, capture criminals, especially violent ones.

The point of all of this that we are a hairs breadth away from swastika laden fools that will be more terroristic than anything that comes from outside the country.

More on technology to come in the near future.

Stay safe, and press home for Peace,

Bob
