01MAY2014: Happy Mayday! Supreme Court: Pennsylvania cops no longer need a warrant to search citizens’ vehicles


The State of PA may have forgotten that the Supreme Law of the Land including the first 10 amendments have been “incorporated” in all State Constitutions as cited in US Supreme court ruling McDonald v Chicago 2010 — The 4th amendment says :

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The Supreme court ruled in Arizona v. Gant in 2009 that police can only search your car without a warrant if they feel their safety is in question .. or after there is an arrest, a need to preserve evidence related to the crime of arrest from tampering by the arrestee.

I would argue that the police in PA will find “probable cause” probably cause they want to search your car ….

Evidence that America has been captured by a Police State is everywhere. A hallmark of police states is the loss of the right to privacy and private property.

Most people do not know :

The number 2 source of revenue resulting from police arrests and traffic stops in the United States is called “Civil forfeiture ” It is basically cops pulling over cars and searching cars, then finding money and stealing it. They also seize property including vehicles, boats, houses etc if you are involved in a drug crime — but outright theft is outright theft ..

For example :

“Virginia State Police stopped Victor Luis Guzman for speeding on I-95 and seized $28,500 from him. But law enforcement didn’t ticket or charge him with any crime. A church secretary, Guzman said he was transporting the cash for his church. The money in question was from parishioners’ donations. He was able to retrieve the cash only after an attorney who served in the Justice Department’s Asset Forfeiture Office during the Reagan administration took his case pro bono. ” *

I would conclude that police departments in PA are about to get richer .. and PA residents are about to fork over more of their hard earned money to criminals and gangs wearing uniforms ..

Middle class Americans are just FOOD for cannibals in government and other gangs — The New Highwayman is not a masked bandit … He is an armed Statesman wearing a uniform and professing he is on the scene to help …

(Lancasteronline) – Pennsylvania police officers no longer need a warrant to search a citizen’s vehicle, according to a recent state Supreme Court opinion.

The high court’s opinion, released Tuesday, is being called a drastic change in citizens’ rights and police powers.

27JAN2014 – Psychological Warfare – Ohio police department using fake drug checkpoints


Editorial comment – OHIO is not the only state performing these ‘pre-crime set-ups’ and psychological warfare operations against  the American and/or U.S citizen driver. TGR has acquired information over the past few years suggesting that Missouri and other states participate in these psychological police-state predictive programming warfare ops. I wonder if they ever consider drivers may turn off after seeing these signs because they are late anyway to their destination, or they want to avoid or not participate in the whole ‘super-soldier’  performance and  predictive programming psychological entrapment warfare games?  Maybe they just want to avoid being shot that day at the alleged checkpoint?  Can’t we just travel and not be harassed? Just a few more unresolved questions…

(ElPasoTimes) – MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio—Police in the Cleveland suburb of Mayfield Heights know they’re not allowed to use checkpoints to search drivers and their cars for drugs.

So they’re trying the next best thing: fake drug checkpoints.

Police in the city of 19,000 recently posted large yellow signs along Interstate 271 that warned drivers that there was a drug checkpoint ahead, to be prepared to stop and that there was a drug-sniffing police dog in use.

There was no such checkpoint, just police officers waiting to see if any drivers would react suspiciously after seeing the signs.

Authorities say that four people were stopped, with some arrests and drugs seized. They declined to be more specific.

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports (http://bit.ly/12tIqGq) that some civil rights leaders and at least one person pulled over by police are questioning the tactic, wondering if it could violate the Fourth Amendment against unlawful searches and seizures.

“I don’t think it accomplishes any public safety goals,” said Terry Gilbert, a prominent Cleveland civil rights attorney. “I don’t think it’s good to mislead the population for any reason if you’re a government agency.”

Nick Worner, a spokesman for the Cleveland office of the American Civil Liberties Union, said his office will be looking further into the fake checkpoints to determine whether anyone’s rights may be being violated.

Dominic Vitantonio, a Mayfield Heights assistant prosecutor, said the fake checkpoints are legal and a legitimate effort in the war on drugs.

“We should be applauded for doing this,” Dominic Vitantonio said. “It’s a good thing.”

A 2000 U.S. Supreme Court ruling said actual drug checkpoints are not legal and that police can randomly stop cars for just two reasons: to prevent immigrants without legal permission to be in the U.S. and contraband from entering the country and to get drunk drivers off the road.

It’s unclear how that ruling would apply to a fake drug checkpoint or whether any other police department in the nation has used similar tactics

Bill Peters, one of the four drivers pulled over as a result of the fake checkpoint, said he wonders if he was targeted because he has long, unkempt hair.

Peters, of Medina, said he was driving on the interstate when he missed his exit. He pulled over to check his phone for directions, then pulled back onto the freeway when his phone disconnected from the charger, causing him to pull over again to reconnect it, he said.

Soon after returning to the freeway, police pulled him over.

Peters said the officer asked him what kind of drugs he had in the car, saying it would be much easier to confess before other officers and a drug-sniffing dog arrived. Peters insisted he had no drugs. As promised, other officers and the dog were summoned, and Peters agreed to allow his car to be searched.

No drugs were found.

“The last time I checked, it is not against the law to pull over to the side of the road to check directions,” said Peters, who added that the officer who stopped him commended him for being safety conscious.

“I see what they’re doing, but I think it’s kind of dangerous,” Peters said. “It’s one thing to do this on a 25 mph road; it’s another on a busy interstate. I think it’s a violation to just be pulled over and searched.”

10AUG2013: WARRANTLESS VAGINAL SEARCHES CONDUCTED BY TEXAS POLICE


(Ben Swann) – Police in Texas have been caught conducting completely warrantless vaginal searches of women on the side of freeways.

Yes, you read that correctly.

A new set of videos show Texas state troopers probing women’s vaginas and anal areas while searching for drugs.

After watching the videos, which were taken by police car dashboard cams, it is painfully obvious that police were confident that the women did not have marijuana — but they went ahead with the cavity searches anyways.

The women in the first video was pulled over for speeding. Pretty standard traffic stop, right?

Not in this case.

The male cop became convinced that the women in the car were hiding drugs in their private areas. He called a female officer over to help him and told the women, “I ain’t about to get up close and personal with your woman areas.” The footage shows the shocked woman driver’s facial expression as she is intimately searched.

The two women involved in the incident, Alexandra Randle and Brandy Hamilton, have filed a suit.
