Robert Greenwald and Vanessa Baden are two of the most respected documentarians in the the U.S., so they know whereof they speak about filming law enforcement in action. From my perspective of course a citizen can video his police in action. When I read about this issue I am taken back 20 years to the old Soviet Union, when filming the police could get you into real trouble. Bullies and jackboots it goes without saying do not like to be filmed. They know what they are doing is morally wrong, whatever they say publicly. And they don’t want their actions memorialized. The fact that this is even a debated issue in the U.S. tells you how compromised civil liberties have become. Greenwald and Baden present the case for why assess things as I do.
The Guardian reported on the scale and scope of this trend in 2014:
“In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act.”
Phi Beta Iota: Noteworthy at multiple levels including the alleged and near instant “ISIS” tweets of support as the act unfolded. Useful in part because of long list with links of prior terror events where authorities nurtured the alleged terrorists. Muslim communities are starting to take out restraining orders against FBI informants. It is also possible the lenient sentence in the earlier declaration of interest in Somalia was arranged with the expectation that the Garland shooter would become an informant himself. Bottom line: questions the official narrative.
False Flag @ Phi Beta Iota
Baltimore teachers and parents tell a different story from the one you’ve been reading in the media.
EXTRACT: When school let out that afternoon, police were in the area equipped with full riot gear. According to eyewitnesses in the Mondawmin neighborhood, the police were stopping busses and forcing riders, including many students who were trying to get home, to disembark. Cops shut down the local subway stop. They also blockaded roads near the Mondawmin Mall and Frederick Douglass High School, which is across the street from the mall, and essentially corralled young people in the area. That is, they did not allow the after-school crowd to disperse.
