The Five Eyes Nation: Not what you think

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

One Nation

The Five Eyes Nation, (FVEY), is an intelligence alliance comprised of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US, bound by the multilateral UKUSA Agreement, a treaty for joint cooperation in signals intelligence. The “Five Eyes” term is shorthand for “AUS/CAN/NZ/UK/US EYES ONLY” classification level.

The “Five Eyes” community is part of an extensive alliance of Western democracies sharing signals. These allied include countries NATO members, other European democracies such as Sweden, and allies in the Pacific, specifically Singapore and South Korea.

People just looked the other way when street cams (surveillance cameras) were installed virtually everywhere, tracking online activities of people who are just exercising their rights to civil protest. This information is collected even on individuals who haven’t committed crimes. “Pre-operational surveillance” using a camera or binoculars, “counter-surveillance efforts” people who double back, evasive driving or changing your appearance are used. Any of these seemingly innocent behaviors by a citizen can lead the police to write up a secret file on an individual and upload it into a database accessible to every law enforcement agency in the country “just in case”.

Police argue military equipment makes them safer, no matter what the cost to community relations by making its way from the department of defense to police departments around the country.

How do they do it?
Devices on planes mimicking cellphone towers are used to target criminals, but also sift through thousands of other phones. The U.S. Marshals Service program operates Cessna aircraft from at least five metropolitan-area airports, with a flying range covering most of the U.S. population. Planes are equipped with DRT’s (dirtboxes) which are cell site simulator, or a phone device mimicking a cell phone tower.

The DRT device is designed to create a signal strong enough within a short range that it forces dormant mobile phones to automatically switch over to it to detect and locate cell phones and thus collect information, and can be used to jam phones. Cellphones are programmed to connect automatically to the strongest cell tower signal. The device being used by the U.S. Marshals Service identifies itself as having the closest, strongest signal, even though it doesn’t, and forces all the phones that can detect its signal to send in their unique registration information. These devices can locate up to 10,000 targets and can process multiple analog and digital wireless devices all at the same time. They’re even capable of intercepting and recording digital voice data. capable of breaking encryption on communications from 200 cellphones simultaneously across state-of-the-art 4G LTE frequencies used for rapid data transmission by the latest generation of smartphones.
Cellbrite: “a portable, handheld, field proven forensic system for the quick extraction and analysis of 95% cell phones, smart phones and PDA devices,” capable of extracting “information such as phone book, pictures, video, text messages, and call logs.”
Kingfish: a Stingray-like device that is “portable enough to be carried around in a backpack.”
Stargrazer: “an Army system developed to deny, degrade and/or disrupt a targeted adversary’s command and control (C2) system,” “can jam a handset and capture its metadata at the same time it pinpoints your target’s location. But watch out — the Stargazer may jam all the other phones in the area too — including your own.”
Cyberhawk: capable of gathering “phonebook, names, SMS, media files, text, deleted SMS, calendar items and notes” from 79 cell phones.
Stingray: drains the targeted device, as well as raise’s signal strength. As long as a phone is on, it could be targeted.

These tools are part of the militarization of police; the use of technology with eavesdropping capabilities, without a warrant is “a clear violation the Fourth Amendment.”

This is what you lose in your pursuit to be “protected”’.

Interrogating Suspects by Employing Psychological Manipulation

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

psychological

THE REID METHOD uses advanced psychological and coerciveness techniques which appear simple on the surface, but have been likened to “brainwashing” by criminal defense attorneys. This method of questioning suspects is to assess their credibility in a three-phase process beginning with Fact Analysis, followed by the Behavior Analysis Interview (a non-accusatory interview designed to develop investigative and behavioral information), and followed by the Reid Nine Steps of Interrogation.

However Reid Method technique been proven it can elicit false confessions from innocent persons, especially children, the mentally ill and foreign language speakers.

An interrogator trained in psychological manipulation first talks with the subject a while and attempts to develop rapport prior to initiating any questioning. The interrogator may feign interest in some of the suspect’s hobbies or in the suspect’s lifestyle. By acting in such a manner, the interrogator leads the suspect to believe that he and the interrogator are similar in many ways. Once the suspect begins talking about any topic, it is harder for the suspect to stop talking about other topics–including crimes he may have committed. Suspects who like their interrogators and feel compelled to talk because they are already within the throes of conversation find it much harder to lie….

KINESIC INTERVIEWING: The next stage of the operation involves getting a “baseline” of the suspect’s normal behavior when asked non-stressful questions. These questions appear to be innocuous on the surface, but are not. The interrogator watches the subject’s facial expressions and body language prior to, during and after the suspect answers the question giving the interrogator a very good idea of how the suspect acts when he answers questions truthfully.

NEUROLINGUISTIC INTERVIEWING:
involves asking a suspect two types of questions. One set of questions requires the suspect to remember data, and the other requires the suspect to use his cognitive processes. The interrogator then watches the suspect’s body language to determine what type of changes take place when the suspect thinks of information, as opposed to remembering it.

Innocent people tend to answer questions differently than guilty suspects. a guilty suspect will show deceptive body language. experience has shown the police that the people who commit crimes will seize upon any excuse to mitigate the reason they committed a crime i.e. Victim Blaming. If the subject shows a propensity to blame his crime on someone else, or states that the crime was probably a mistake, these themes will be used later on.

NINE STEPS OF INTERROGATION
1. Direct confrontation. Advise the suspect that the evidence has led the police to the individual as a suspect. Offer the person an early opportunity to explain why the offense took place.
2. Try to shift the blame away from the suspect to some other person or set of circumstances that prompted the suspect to commit the crime. That is, develop themes containing reasons that will psychologically justify or excuse the crime. Themes may be developed or changed to find one to which the accused is most responsive.
3. Try to discourage the suspect from denying his or her guilt.
4. At this point, the accused will often give a reason why he or she did not or could not commit the crime. Try to use this to move towards the confession.
5. Reinforce sincerity to ensure that the suspect is receptive.
6. The suspect will become quieter and listen. Move the theme discussion towards offering alternatives. If the suspect cries at this point, infer guilt.
7. Pose the “alternative question”, giving two choices for what happened; one more socially acceptable than the other. The suspect is expected to choose the easier option but whichever alternative the suspect chooses, guilt is admitted. There is always a third option which is to maintain that they did not commit the crime.
8. Lead the suspect to repeat the admission of guilt in front of witnesses and develop corroborating information to establish the validity of the confession.
9. Document the suspect’s admission or confession and have him or her prepare a recorded statement (audio, video or written).

The interrogator who utilizes these methods has a highly structured plan going into the interrogation. These techniques can be taught to virtually anyone. Even ordinary police officers are taught to use them in everyday police work.

Pleading the Fifth and Understanding Your Miranda Rights

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Free

Pleading the Fifth allows a witness to decline to answer questions which might otherwise incriminate him or her without penalty. The Miranda Warning sets an acceptable preventative measure for those well-established rights.

When the Supreme Court created the Miranda warning, its purpose was to shield people in police custody from being forced to make statements which would later be used against them at trial. At its heart, the Miranda warning is a “procedural safeguard” an extra lock on the door so to speak.

Before Miranda, police induced confessions through torture, deprivation of food and water, lies and other cruel and inhumane treatment. After Miranda, police were force to incorporate the Miranda Warning; although most often police downplay the warning with a routine and casual announcement hoping you’ll let down your guard.

Keep in mind, an officer has the right to ask you questions; YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECLINE TO ANSWER.

People often blurt out admissions in the heat of the moment or let the police bait them into admissions. 80 percent of people don’t invoke their Miranda Rights do so because they feel they’ll antagonize the police further by stating “I refuse to answer any questions until I see my attorney.” However, the best advice is quite simple: Be cooperative, courteous, well-mannered, provide identification, but say nothing other than to request a lawyer.

When you’re asked why you refuse to answer; courteously REPEAT “I refuse to comment or provide an answer.” The reason you’re asked this is because, once you answer you’re contradicting yourself by providing an answer, they’re psychologically programming and conditioning you to answer even more questions. The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself or herself. Outside the context of detention or arrest, a person has no duty to answer any questions by police at all; and if judicial compulsion is sought by the State, the person can still invoke his or her Fifth Amendment right against compulsory self-incrimination, and refuse to comply.

It’s been proven juveniles who do not keep silent in nearly 90 percent of interrogations, often do not understand the Miranda Warning and therefore don’t take advantage of it. Some have misconstrued the warning to mean that they should stay silent (quiet and respectful) except to answer questions. They talk to police in order to comply with the authority figure in the room. People with mental disabilities are less likely to understand the Miranda Warning as are people who speak English as a 2nd language. Also a recent study showed people who have been hit by a Taser most likely suffer from a cognitive impairment affecting memory and ability to process information.

The traditional Miranda Waring ends with a question along the lines of “do you understand these rights as they have been read to you”. A suspect must affirmatively respond they understand these rights – courts will not interpret silence as a sufficient acknowledgment of the Miranda warning. YOU MUST VERBALLY STATE and WRITE on the document BEFORE affixing your signature “I DO NOT WANT TO BE QUESTIONED WITHOUT AN ATTORNEY PRESENT.” When a prisoner demands a lawyer ALL QUESTIONING MUST STOP IMMEDIATELY since a lawyer would probably not be immediately available, prepare to sit for a very long time.

June 17, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled an individual must specifically invoke the Fifth Amendment right to “remain silent”, otherwise silence can be used against him or her in court. In that case, a murder suspect refused to sign an acknowledgment of his Miranda Rights, then later made statements that were used against him in his conviction for the crime. The Court ruled the burden was on the suspect to invoke his Miranda Rights, and hisxfailure to sign the acknowledgment essentially amounted to a waiver of those rights.

The police like to play games with prisoners and are legally allowed to lie, cheat and trick alleged suspects into making false confessions or unwise statements. Under the Reid Method criminal interrogation and confessions gained by falsely accusing suspects by treating them aggressively and telling lies about the amount of evidence proving their guilt. Such exaggerated claims of evidence, such as video or genetics (DNA), led to potentially innocent suspects becoming overwhelmed. Also people sometimes make statements hoping for leniency by rating out friends or family only to be told their statements were not good enough and will now be used against them. Keep in mind you WILL NOT be able to talk yourself out of the jam, SAY NOTHING.

If you receive a request to go to the police station to answer questions, or if the police come to you and ask questions, you DO NOT have to answer and can politely decline. You can assume, though, that if the police really want to talk to you, they’ll come up with ‘probable cause’ and either arrest you (requiring that you be read the Miranda Warning) or they’ll get a search warrant if they feel you are in possession of evidence a crime has been committed.

The Miranda warning is just that, a WARNING. Don’t make matters worse for yourself. When in doubt, shut up. Even if you desperately want to talk, shut up anyway. There is very little, if anything, you can say to help yourself. Most of what you say will hurt you because the police lie, twist, turn and manipulate your words.

Remember once a suspect waives their Miranda Rights, police use psychological and coerciveness techniques to obtain confessions and incriminating statements by implementing a high-stress, hours-long interrogation. The police are authorized to lie to the suspect about witnesses, physical evidence and even identification line-ups. The suspect, exhausted and confused after hours of questioning, may confess just to make the interrogation end.

MIRANDA WARNINGS DON’T ALWAYS APPLY
There are two very basic prerequisites before the police must issue a Miranda warning to a suspect:

1. The suspect is in police custody
2. The suspect is under interrogation
3. It’s crucial to understand these prerequisites because if you aren’t formally in police custody, and you aren’t being interrogated, the police don’t have to give you a Miranda warning. This, in turn, means that the police can use anything you say until those two requirements are fulfilled as evidence against you.

EXCEPTIONS TO THE MIRANDA RULE give police a real incentive to violate the rule. Moreover, they mean suspects have to protect themselves. Suspects who think what they say can’t be used against them at trial because they weren’t given Miranda warnings need to understand improperly obtained statements may well be admissible in evidence.

• Public safety. In dangerous situations, the “public safety” exception allows police officers to question suspects about weapons without giving a Miranda warning. If the interrogation leads the police to a weapon, it can be used against the suspect at trial. (N.Y. v. Quarles, U.S. Sup. Ct. 1984.)
• Tangible evidence. Dangerous situation or not, any tangible evidence (such as a threatening note or the loot from a robbery) that the police learn about through questioning that violates Miranda can generally be used against a suspect in court. (U.S. v. Patane, U.S. Sup. Ct. 2004.)
• Witness. If a statement taken in violation of Miranda leads the police to another witness, that witness can testify against a suspect at trial. (Michigan v. Tucker, U.S. Sup. Ct. 1974.)
• “Inevitable discovery.” If the police would have eventually found tangible evidence on their own, the evidence can be used against a suspect at trial even if the police actually found out about it during questioning that violates Miranda.

Honey Bee Sting

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Bee

I always seem to get stung while in the pool without even realizing there’s a been one on me! Ouch, right on the muscle AGAIN!!!

Honey bees are the only species of bees to die after stinging. When a honey bee stings a person, it cannot pull the barbed stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger, but also part of its abdomen and digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture kills the honey bee.

The larger drone bees, the males, do not have stingers. The female worker bees are the only ones that can sting, and their stinger is a modified ovipositor.

The sting consists of three parts: a stylus and two barbed slides (or lancets), one on either side of the stylus. The bee does not push the sting in but it is drawn in by the barbed slides. The slides move alternately up and down the stylus so when the barb of one slide has caught and retracts, it pulls the stylus and the other barbed slide into the wound. When the other barb has caught, it also retracts up the stylus pulling the sting further in. This process is repeated until the sting is fully in and even continues after the sting and its mechanism is detached from the bee’s abdomen; it can’t pull the stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger but also part of its digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture is what kills the bee.

But there’s an advantage for the bees in this. Even after you swat the bee away, a cluster of nerve cells coordinates the muscles of the stinger left behind. The barbed shafts rub back and forth, digging deeper into your skin. Muscular valves pump toxins from an attached venom sac, and deliver it to the wound – for several minutes after the bee is gone.

The sting’s injection of apitoxin (a bitter colorless liquid; its active portion a mixture of proteins, which causes local inflammation and acts as an anticoagulant) A honeybee can inject 0.1 mg of venom via its stinger into the victim and is accompanied by the release of alarm pheromones from a gland near the sting chamber, a process which is accelerated if the bee is fatally injured. When a bee stings you, it gives off a mixture of alarm pheromones. Release of alarm pheromones may attract other bees to the location, where they will likewise exhibit defensive behaviors and excite the other bees, who will open their mandibles, protrude their stingers, and sting anything that moves close to them until there is no longer a threat, typically because the victim has either fled or been killed.

These pheromones do not dissipate or wash off quickly, and if their target enters water, bees will resume their attack as soon as it leaves the water. The alarm pheromone emitted when a bee stings another animal smells like bananas.

The process of leaving behind a body part as a form of defense – in this case, part of the abdomen – is called autotomy (the casting off of a part of the body).

Now you know climate change is a Fucking hoax because Monsanto wants to protect the bees from it.

When I was 6 Years Old I Gave My First Blowjob

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Blowjob

The anonymous author is speaking in metaphoric language based on the testimony of entire nations of women; this is the experience of their collective.

When I was six years old, I gave my first blowjob.
“It’s a game”, said He. “Don’t you want to play?”
It was too big, and I threw up on him.
He said I’d do better the next time.

When I was seven years old, I watched a group of fellow second graders cheer as a boy in my class tried to kiss me. He hugged me from behind, giggling all the while.
I threw sand in his eyes, and was sent to the Principal.

When I was eight years old, I had an elderly teacher ask me to stay behind in class. He carried me on his shoulders, and called me pretty.
“Teacher’s Pet!” my friends declared, the envy visible on their faces.
They ignored me at lunch that day.

When I was nine years old, an older girl on the school bus would ask me to lift my skirt up for her. She was pretty and kind, and told me that I could only be her friend if I did what she said.
I wanted to be her friend.

When I was ten years old, a relative demanded that he get a kiss on the cheek every time we met. He was large and loud, and I proceeded to hide under my bed whenever I learnt that he was visiting.
I was known as a rude child.

When I was eleven, my auto-man told me that we would only leave if I gave him a hug every day.
He smelled like cheap soap and cigarettes.

When I was twelve years old, I watched as a man on the street touched my mother’s breast as he passed us. She slapped him amidst the shouts of onlookers telling her to calm down.
She didn’t calm down.

When I was thirteen years old, I exited a restaurant only to see a man visibly masturbating as he walked towards me. As he passed, he winked lasciviously.
My friends and I shifted our gazes down, aghast.

When I was fourteen, a young man in an expensive car followed me home as I walked back from an evening class. I ignored his offer to give me a ride, and I panicked when he got out, only to buy me a box of chocolate that I refused. He parked at the end of my road, and didn’t go away for an hour.
“It turns me on to see you so scared.”

When I was fifteen, I was groped on a bus. It was with a heart full of shame that I confided in a friend, only to be met with his anger and disappointment that I had not shouted at the molester at the time when it happened. My soft protests of being afraid and alone were drowned out as he berated my inaction. To him, my passiveness and silence were the reasons why things like this continue to happen.
He did not wait for my response.

When I was sixteen, I discovered that Facebook had a section of inbox messages named ‘others’, which contained those mails received from strangers, automatically stored as spam. Curious, I opened it to find numerous messages from men I had never seen before. I was propositioned, called sexy, asked for nudes, and insulted.
Delete message.

When I was seventeen, I called for help as a drunken man tried to sexually harass me in a crowded street.
The people around me seemed to walk by quicker.

At eighteen, I was told that sexism doesn’t exist in modern society.
I was told that harassment couldn’t be as bad as us women make it out to be.
That I should watch what I wear.
Never mind you were six, never mind you were wearing pink pajamas.
That I should be louder.
But not too loud, a lady must be polite.
That I should always ask for help.
But stop overreacting, there’s a difference.
That I should stay in at night, because it isn’t safe.
You can’t get harassed in broad daylight.
That I should always travel with no less than two boys with me.
You need to be protected.

That it can’t be that hard to be a girl.

I am now nineteen years old.
I am now tired.

Know your 4th Amendment Rights

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

4th Amendment

Any time an emergency vehicle stops you, you’re being detained. If police flag you down, pull over immediately, turn off your car, and place your hands on the wheel. If the officer asks for your license, registration and insurance give it to him/her. If you’re ordered to exit the vehicle, do so immediately. But if the officer tries to use your traffic violation as a basis for a further investigation, minor traffic violations (e.g. speeding, broken tail-light or expired registration) these ARE NOT CONSIDERED PROBABLE CAUSE.

Most police are able to exploit a major loophole to the probable cause search requirement by tricking you into giving up your constitutional rights. REMAIN SILENT: What you don’t say can’t hurt you but anything you do say can and will be used against you. Don’t announce you know your rights. They consider it a challenge.

Police attempt to make you admit to breaking a law “You don’t mind if I have a look in your car?” is the LEGAL LOOPHOLE the officer wants to snare you with; it’ll sound like a command, but it’s only a suggestion. If you decline they’ll say “What do you have to hide?” Don’t fall for this manipulation trick. If necessary, repeat your refusal. By using psychological intimidation techniques and demoralizing scare tactics they’re obligating YOU to prove your innocence. Remember it’s their job to prove you’re guilty; it’s NOT your job to prove you’re innocent.

Silent 2

Most avoidable police searches don’t occur because police have probable cause. They occur because people are hoodwinked and intimidated into consenting to search REQUESTS. The 4th Amendment protects your RIGHT TO REFUSE, but it doesn’t require police to tell you about your right to refuse. Consenting to searches AUTOMATICALLY makes the search legal in the eyes of the law. When you’re pulled over, don’t try to figure out whether or not the officer has probable cause. YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SEARCHES and you can say “Officer, I know you’re just doing your job, but I don’t consent to searches.”

“STOP AND IDENTIFY” statutes are statutory laws in the US authorizing police to legally obtain the identification of someone whom they REASONABLY suspect has committed a crime. If the person is NOT REASONABLY SUSPECTED of committing a crime, they are NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE IDENTIFICATION, even in states with stop and identify statutes.

The FOURTH AMENDMENT (Amendment IV) to the US CONSTITUTION is the section of the BILL OF RIGHTS PROHIBITING UNREASONABLE SEARCHES AND SEIZURES and REQUIRES any warrant to be JUDICIALLY SANCTIONED and SUPPORTED BY PROBABLE CAUSE.

Unless you’re detained or arrested, you may terminate the encounter anytime. But don’t wait for the officer to dismiss you. Ask “Am I free to go.” If the officer threatens to call in a K-9 unit, ask “Officer, are you detaining me, or am I free to go?”

Not only can this line can help withdraw you from an encounter, it also deflects any of the officer’s probing questions or threats. If the officer says; “If you cooperate with me, everything will go easy for you.” Respond by stating “I don’t consent to any searches” or “Am I free to go?” If you’re let go, leave immediately. If the officer’s answer is unclear, or if you’re asked additional questions, repeat “Officer am I free to go?”

If you are not free to go, you are officially detained as they might have some reason to suspect you of a crime, and you may be arrested. In such a situation upon questioning say “I chose to remain silent. I would like to see an attorney.” NEVER rely on the police to inform you of your right to remain silent and/or secure a lawyer. Upon on further questioning if necessary, but say nothing else. REMEMBER ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU.

Miranda Warning

CONSENSUAL
Police may approach a person and ask questions. The objective may simply be a friendly conversation; however, the police also may SUSPECT INVOLVEMENT in a crime, but lack “SPECIFIC AND ARTICULABLE FACTS”.

REASONABLE SUSPICION
Police may BRIEFLY detain a person if they have reasonable suspicion the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime or reasonably suspect may be armed and dangerous.

ARREST
A detention requires only that police have REASONABLE SUSPICION a person is involved in criminal activity. However, to make an arrest, an officer MUST HAVE PROBABLE CAUSE to believe the person has committed a crime.

Silent

TERRY STOP
A brief detention of a person by police on REASONABLE suspicion of involvement in criminal activity but SHORT OF PROBABLE CAUSE TO ARREST. A person detained can be questioned but is “NOT OBLIGED” to answer, REFUSAL TO ANSWER FURNISHES NO BASIS FOR AN ARREST.

The Supreme Court of the United States states police may briefly detain a person they reasonably suspect is involved in criminal activity; the Court also held police may do a LIMITED search of the suspect’s outer garments for weapons IF they have a REASONABLE and ARTICULABLE (legal standard) SUSPICION the person detained MAY be “ARMED AND DANGEROUS”.

To have reasonable suspicion to justify a stop, POLICE MUST BE ABLE TO POINT TO “specific and articulable facts” indicating a crime has been, is being, or is about to be committed.

The search of suspect’s outer garments, also known as a pat-down, must be LIMITED to what is necessary to discover weapons; however, pursuant to the “PLAIN VIEW” doctrine, police may seize contraband discovered in the course of a frisk, but ONLY if the contraband’s identity is immediately apparent.

TRAFFIC STOPS
A traffic stop is, for practical purposes, a Terry Stop; for the duration of a stop, driver and passengers are “seized” within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court has held drivers and passengers may be ordered out of the vehicle without violating the Fourth Amendment’s proscription of unreasonable searches and seizures.

Drivers and passengers may be searched for weapons upon REASONABLE SUSPICION they are armed and dangerous. If police reasonably suspect the driver or any of the occupants may be dangerous or the vehicle may contain a weapon to which an occupant may gain access, police may perform a protective search of the passenger compartment without a warrant, probable cause, or the driver’s consent. Police may not search the vehicle unless under the “PLAIN VIEW” doctrine to seize and use as evidence weapons or contraband visible from outside the vehicle.

“LET ME SEE YOUR ID.”
In the United States there’s no law requiring you to carry a government ID. But in 24 states police may require you to identify yourself if they have reasonable suspicion that you’re involved in criminal activity.

Police DO NOT have to Inform You of Your Charges
It is a common misapprehension that police officers are required to tell you why you’re being arrested or what offense you’ve committed when you’re being arrested. However ALL arrests without a warrant must be supported by PROBABLE CAUSE, no matter which state you’re in. So every legal arrest must be based on probable cause that a suspect has committed a crime. Still, there is no general requirement that, at the time of arrest, an officer has to share this probable cause assessment with the arrestee. A person arrested must be given a probable cause hearing, ordinarily within 48 hours of their arrest.

REMEMBER: You have the right to remain silent, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you say or do will be exaggerated, misquoted, twisted and used against you. Click Here to read Pleading the Fifth and Understanding Your Miranda Rights

YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE VIDEOS AND PHOTOGRAPHS
June 2014, the US Supreme Court held that law enforcement CANNOT search a cellphone WITHOUT a warrant. When in outdoor public spaces where you are legally present, you have the right to capture any image in plain view. That includes pictures and videos of federal buildings, transportation facilities (including airports), AND police officers.

VIDEOTAPING and PHOTOGRAPHY

1. ~ DON’T POINT YOUR CAMERA/PHONE LIKE A GUN

2. ~ HOLD YOUR CAMERA/PHONE SIDEWAYS (LANDSCAPE VIEW)

3. ~ HOLD YOUR CAMERA/PHONE STILL and KEEP IT ON THE SUBJECTS. DO NOT try to capture what other’s are doing or filming

4. ~ IF YOU’RE INSIDE TURN YOUR TV or MUSIC OFF

5. ~ DON’T SHARE YOUR VIDEO WITH POLICE

6. ~ USE A LIVE STREAMING APP IF POSSIBLE as officers will often lie in order seize your camera/phone without a warrant by stating witnesses are allowed to leave at any time but are not allowed to take their camera/phone as the camera/phone may contain evidence.

7. ~ PROTECT YOUR PASS-CODE which is essential for preserving video in case police illegally destroy or confiscate your camera/phone

STAND BACK
If you’re approaching the scene of an investigation or an accident, police will order you to move back. Depending on the circumstances, you might become involved in an intense negotiation to determine the “appropriate” distance you need to stand back to avoid “interfering”. If you feel you’re already standing at a reasonable distance, say something to the effect of; “Officer, I have a right to be here. I’m filming for documentation purposes and not interfering with your work.” It’s up to you to decide how far back you’re willing to stand in order to avoid arrest.

“STOP RECORDING ME. IT’S AGAINST THE LAW”
Respond “Officer, with all due respect, state law only requires permission from one party in a conversation. I don’t need your permission to record so long as I’m not interfering with your work.” Or “Officer, I’m familiar with the law, and the courts have ruled it doesn’t apply to recording on-duty police.”

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”
If a police officer says “What are you doing?” say “Officer, I’m not interfering. I’m asserting my First Amendment rights. You’re being documented and recorded offsite” while remaining calm. They might follow up by asking, “Who do you work for?”Tell them you’re an independent filmmaker or a citizen journalist with a website/blog/YouTube show. Whatever you say, don’t lie—but don’t let police trick you into thinking the First Amendment only applies to mainstream media journalists. It doesn’t.

The law in 38 states plainly allows citizens to record police, as long as you don’t physically interfere with their work. Twelve states—California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Washington—require the consent of all parties for you to record a CONVERSATION. All but 2 —Massachusetts and Illinois—have an “expectation of privacy provision” to their all-party laws in which courts have ruled does not apply to on-duty police (or anyone in public). In other words, it’s technically legal in those 48 states to openly record on-duty police.

PLEASE NOTE: A person is guilty of obstructing governmental administration when he intentionally obstructs, impairs or perverts the administration of law or other governmental function, or prevents or attempts to prevent a public servant from performing an official function, by means of intimidation, physical force or interference, or by means of any independently unlawful act.

PLEASE NOTE: Wording and interpretation by state, county or city may vary and a substantial allegation furnishing identity at the time of a stop would give police a link in the chain of evidence needed to convict the individual of a separate offense.

VIDEOTAPING ON FEDERAL PROPERTY
If protective service officers harass you while filming on federal property, you may remind them of a recently issued directive informing them that there’s NO PROHIBITION AGAINST PUBLIC PHOTOGRAPHY AT FEDERAL BUILDINGS.

Colorado House Bill HB 12-1213

Lady2Soothe

Smoke

CONCERNING THE PENALTY FOR A PERSON WHO ESCAPES FROM A PLACE OF CONFINEMENT OTHER THAN A COUNTY JAIL OR CORRECTIONAL FACILITY
Escape from a Colorado State Dept. of Correction facility or halfway house CANNOT be used to extend a sentence.

Details on Colorado House bill HB 12-1213, introduced Jan. 30 2012 and last acted on May 17, 2012. When this bill was signed by Governor Hickenlooper it rendered such an adjudication inapplicable to a person who is convicted of escape or attempt to escape from a place *other* than a county jail or a correctional facility.

My name is Harold Smith

MY STORY
I was convicted of aggravated robbery and habitual criminal in June 1998. Aggravated robbery is a Class 3 felony which carries a maximum sentence of 16 years in prison. However, I had 2 Class 5 non-violent prior felony convictions. The first was possession of a dangerous weapon which I was sentenced to 2 ½ years in the Colorado Department of Corrections in 1993. I was allowed to go to the half-way house in May 1994. I walked away (escape) in September of that year. I was charged with, and convicted of escape, and sentenced to one (1) year DOC and one (1) year parole. This was the second felony used to adjudicate me a habitual criminal. I was on parole for the first escape when I caught the aggravated robbery January 26, 1998 which makes me ineligible for executive clemency. The punishment for aggravated robbery is 16 years was multiplied by 3 which extended my sentence to 48 years. Those are the facts of my case.

THE INJUSTICE
In 2012 Colorado Representative Rhonda Fields sponsored House Bill 12-1213 (hereinafter referred to as HB 12-1213) which states “AN ESCAPE SHALL NOT BE USED TO ADJUDICATE A PERSON HABITUAL CRIMINAL”. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed HB 12-1213 into law May 17, 2012, however it is not retroactive. I am still in prison due to a law which is no longer relevant or applicable in cases such as mine. In other words I have completely served my time plus additional time for the crimes I’ve committed, which would have subsequently allowed me to be the free and the socially productive man I’ve evolved into today.

I have been lobbying Congress for four (4) years in an attempt to have this law sanctioned as retroactive. I’ve been in contact with State Representative Jovan Melton who assured me he was 90% positive retroactivity would be enacted by legislature as expressed in a formal document by the beginning of April 2016.

Unfortunately the Retroactive Amendment of HB 12-1213 did not materialize as State Representative Jovan Melton expected as he was unable to secure endorsement by Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives Dickey Lee Hullinghorst who refused to even consider the proposed new bill during an election year.

Ironically, the passage of the Amended HB 12-1213 Bill for retroactive application would only affect myself and 5 other people. Only 6 people would be released immediately from the Colorado Department of Corrections statewide.

Representative Jovan Melton has assured me the newly Amended HB 12-1213 Bill will be one of the first five (5) bills introduced to the upcoming January 2017 session and maintains he does not have to submit the bill to the Speaker of the House providing it is one of the first 5 bills proposed. Rep. Melton is convinced Amended HB 12-1213 will pass the House and Senate and signed into law.

Meanwhile as we await the Jan. 2017 session, Rep. Melton suggested I compose a letter to Governor Hickenlooper, addressing it directly to Rep. Melton at his office which he would personally hand deliver to Governor Hickenlooper, which I did in April. I was to explain the circumstances of my incarceration which has been extended three fold past my conviction sentencing. I was to remind the Governor he signed HB 12-1213 “an escape shall not be used to adjudicate a person habitual criminal” into law and as the Governor undoubtedly believed people such as myself are not habitual criminals. It was also recommended I ask the Governor to review the injustice of over-sentencing, over-criminalization, sentencing reform, prison and reentry reform which at this point is unnecessarily harsh and contributes to prison overcrowding while ballooning the state prison budget, and rectify this injustice by commuting my sentence to the original 16 years as time served.

I have family and friends out in the real world who love, respect and are proud of me but it’s not enough to push though the governmental red tape. If you or anyone you know can help I would truly appreciate any and all input, or even a friendly letter of support.

Many thanks and blessings for taking the time to read my message
