Police obsession with taking citizens' cars

Alaska police just raided the Alaska Cannabis Club - an organisation that legally sells cannabis for medical consumption.

No one was arrested.  Police "gathered evidence".  In particular they took away two vehicles: a Dodge Dakota and a Jeep Liberty.  The club will be lucky to see those again.

Ms Greene, a former TV news anchor woman said she was “incensed” the police executed a search warrant on her instead of focusing on a stabbing and shootings that happened nearby just a few hours before.

What's the point of netting dead fish?

Only a few months ago the police and the media were unwilling to say anything about Sir Leon Brittan other than he had been interviewed in connection with a 'missing file' alleging paedophile activities in parliament.  Following his recent death, a former Deputy Commisioner of the Metropolitan Police, Albert Laugharne CBE QPM, has just revealed that the Met had photographs of Sir Leon Brittan, then a senior minister at the Home Office, entering premises that were under surveillance as they were known to be used by parliamentarians and senior civil servants to host orgies with under age boys.


Cyril Smith MP, Sir Leon Brittan MP, Sir Thmas Hetherington, the DPP   KCB, CBE, QC, TD

A planned raid was called off "by more senior law officers" - as yet unnamed. Photographs and papers that could have been used as evidence then went missing, one officer who was part of the surveillance team has alleged.

Willie Whitelaw, the Home Secretary, allegedly then blocked a further police investigation into the Westminster paedophile ring.



In a separate incident in Rochdale in Lancashire Mr Laugharne, then Chief Constable of Lancashire, has reported that he was advised that "a very senior figure" at the Director Of Public Prosecutions office, had instructed the Lancashire Police to cover up their investigation into an allegation that Cyril Smith sexually assaulted a young boy.

Sir Tony Hetherington, the DPP   KCB, CBE, QC, TD, was the Director of Public Prosecutions at the time and went on to set up the modern day Crown Prosecution Service.

Does anyone believe that all of this perversion and corruption suddenly ended, for some reason, in 1990?  The policy is quite clearly to sacrifice only those who are already dead.

Britain - the death of democratic accountability

The British Government's Home Secretary - one of the most senior cabinet posts: "Pedophilia in Britain is woven into the fabric of society".

Four senior judges caught viewing hardcore pornography while presiding over trials.

Members of Parliament, senior civil servants, high court judges and military top brass caught in police sting while forcing 14 year old boys to submit to sex.  The caretaker who installed the spy camera for the police is murdered.  MI5 step in to kill the investigation and serve the police with a "D" Notice (a Defence Notice issued under the 'defence of the realm' legislation) disobedience of which, assuming the recipient were to live long enough, carries a two year prison sentence.

A number of similar investigations have been mothballed until the perpetrators have died, although the offences took place from the mid 1980s until the present day.

A retired senior detective who was involved says "this strikes at the heart of British democracy".  Still, only those who have died are being named.  The establishment continues to protect its own.  The police are dragging their feet in order to give the guilty parties time to destroy evidence.

The police and drug money

In America the Chicgo police have a 'facility' into which prisoners, drugs and drug money disappear.

Citizens are being arrested for possession of modest amounts of cannabis and are being held at a 'black site' known as Homan Square. Their detention which can last for days -and has been known to last for weeks - is unrecorded in any arrest record.  At Homan Square they do not exist.

However, when they are eventually released, without charge, any cannabis and any money in their possession has disappeared.

Stephanie Freeman was detained by the police for 12 hours, her cannabis was confiscated, $700 dollars was taken from her but she was never charged with a crime and there is no record of her detention.

A 2010 federal court ruling found that Chicago “does not adequately inform arrestees of the procedures to retrieve their money and thus does not comport with due process.” More recently, a Washington Post investigation found that Chicago police seized money some 638 times since 9/11, and supporting federal agencies permitted them to keep almost $8 million of it. Outgoing US attorney general Eric Holder recently called for “a comprehensive review” of civil forfeiture.

“Police grab cash and it’s really a backward process,” said Chicago attorney Jonathan Brayman.

“They grab it and you have to go to court to show where it came from, that it came from a legitimate source. Even though the burden is formally on the state, it substantively kind of shifts the burden to the claimant.”

At least politicians and senior law officers are expressing concern with the process.  In the UK all State employees dodge the questions.

In fear of the Americans

I have mentioned repeatedly that the POCA (Proceeds of Crime Act) mechanism and the mindset behind it will spread to more general law and human activities. I can now cite another example of where this is happening.

Finance and banking are now international activities and the United States in its role as ‘policeman of the world’ believes it is entitled to control all global activity. It has used ‘fines’ and confiscations to bankrupt at least one Swiss bank with a branch office in America because it was offering tax-advantageous overseas banking to US citizens. The American government also took action against a British bank because they did not approve of its dealings with Iran.

Wary of massive financial retaliation from the Americans for any perceived misdemeanours, British banks are now checking into their customers’ backgrounds to see if they have any business or family connections of which the American government might disapprove. The (British) banks are then summarily closing the accounts of these totally law-abiding and loyal customers. All of this is being done in secret and without recourse to any legal redress. Perfectly ordinary people are being cut out of the normal financial community and it is happening because of arrogance and stupidity on the part of civil servants combined with fear, spinelessness and more stupidity on the part of private corporations that are prepared to do anything to safeguard their profits.

Even more worryingly is the so-called justification for this attack on innocent people: their private international transactions might, in the future, fund crime or terrorism. Government agents are taking the principles they have managed to get enacted into law via POCA to claim that suspicion automatically indicates guilt followed by punishment. These actions by British banks have even gone one stage further than POCA (which presumes guilt) because it is no longer even possible to attempt a defence or counter argument. The decision by the banks is final and binding. No appeal is possible. The banks blame the American secret services and the Americans can say ‘this is a British banking issue – nothing to do with us’


From The Guardian Newspaper, 7th March 2015.

"The MBE and his wife, and why NatWest shut down their accounts. An economics professor awarded an MBE by the government for his role in helping to rebuild war-torn Kosovo has had his NatWest current account, savings accounts and credit card shut down with no explanation, despite having been with the bank for 40 years.

Alaska legalises cannabis today

America leads the way but is still confused.

Today Alaska became the third US state to completely decriminalise cannabis - meaning small scale growing  and possession is legal.  However, buying and selling the drug remains illegal, at least until November 2015 because the state legislature is still trying to work out how to gather taxes from sales transactions.

As ever, the government bureaucrat demands that all actions should remain illegal until they find a way to get their cut, but at least the legalisation process continues to move forward.

Colorado and Washington state look set to follow suit this spring.

Another day - another law

The "Liberal" Democrat party in the UK has proposed another new law - that of facilitating tax avoidance.

This is a knee-jerk response - one that they hope will be a vote-winner - to the ongoing story that HSBC bank has helped customers open bank accounts in Switzerland and thus avoid tax.

The most obvious first point is that there are already any number of laws that control tax evasion and a number of accountants have already been imprisoned as a result.  Separately there are quite severe laws governing false accounting.

The problem with the HSBC case is that the government (in the form of HMRC) made a deliberate decision not to prosecute the bank because the four major clearing banks in the UK are the tools that the government uses to control the supply of money and the tracing of all transactions.  As with the (many) previous financial scandals the government is so close to the big four banks that, to prosecute any one of them would be like targeting their own family.

Not one banker has been prosecuted for the enormous frauds and false-accounting practices that caused the financial crash; not one banker has been prosecuted for fiddling the LIBOR inter-bank rate.

The banks already extensively spy on their customers on behalf of the government and will grass them up at any opportunity. Tax evasion is already a crime and banks are quite prepared to report any of their customers they suspect of criminal activity.  Opening a bank account in another country is not a crime and to suggest that the government's permission is required to do so is another infringement of basic liberty.  The crime is not reporting profits on income and as the bank is not your accountant there is no way they should know what your profits may be.
