When I shared yesterday the story of drone warfare overseas I wanted to show where this asymmetric warfare is today and remind people that for a few decades drones were only used as SURVEILLANCE. As Obama and Congress started attacking civil liberties under the guise of THE PATRIOT'S ACT AND NDAA----they took political stances that will allow those drones to move from surveillance to militarized attacks on who they claim to be single threats.
Many people make the analogy of Sarah Palin shouting wolves from a helicopter in Alaska and it is the same thing. I spoke of SWAT TEAMs actions found unnecessary and/or failing to provide crime deterrence. In International Economic Zones these programs are killing innocent people every day.
Think back through this week's talk on Baltimore City corporate non-profits---the NGOs like Open Society and Humanim----the funding by foundations like Goldseker and Wall Street Baltimore Development and look below at the areas RAND Corporation provides policy and data. ALL THE POLICIES IN EACH SOCIETAL AREA COME FROM THIS GLOBAL NGO. So, Goldseker et al funds Baltimore non-profits dealing with children and families---------families and communities------education and arts as wrap-around after school-----sustainable energy-----public health----infrastructure----national security----terrorism and Homeland Security and VOILA---NO NEED FOR CITIZEN INPUT---THEY KNOW IT ALL THEY SAY. These global NGOs are attached to all International Economic Zones in Asia, Africa, and Latin America installing all the same policies.
When Baltimore's Community Associations, children and family associations, business and development associations are all staffed with leadership tied to International Economic Zone installation and taking their policy stances from Johns Hopkins and Rand Corporation----they push for more and more and more security and surveillance. This is why we have global security police inside all corporate and public institutions. Even the police with camera policy pushed these few years comes from RAND CORPORATION and is a global military policy used to survey for people inside structures and not to protect from police abuse. Everyone understood if police departments are acting with impunity as they are in Baltimore then police camera video will be edited or deleted of evidence against police.
The RAND Corporation is a research organization that develops solutions to public policy challenges to help make communities throughout the world safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous. Most of the same Baltimore Development 'justice' organizations pushing police cameras also supported a Dixon or Pugh who is team Hopkins and Rand Corporation.
The American people are educated and have resources that allow them to take the lead in writing public policy for their communities. They know the problems and must stop allowing NGOs and corporate non-profits NOT HAVING THE PUBLIC'S INTEREST pretend all these policies are about SOCIAL BENEFIT.

If police are being allowed to shoot and injury/kill citizens at any provocation then how soon will they be shooting from drones? Not long.

Drones over New York? NYPD chief admits he’s interested in an UAV

The head of the New York City Police Department announced this week that the largest local law enforcement agency in the United States might soon rely on spy drones for conducting surveillance.
During an open conversation held Thursday between Reuters editor-in-chief Stephen Adler and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, the chief of police confirmed that New York’s boys in blue aren’t entirely opposed to acquiring an unmanned aerial vehicle for the sake of security.
“We’re looking into it," Kelly reportedly told an audience at the 92nd Street Y Thursday evening. “Anything that helps us.”
Jill Colvin, a producer for the website DNAinfo, says Kelly told his crowd that adding an UAV to their arsenal of surveillance tools could come in handy during future mass protests in the Big Apple. For starters, she reports, Kelly said cops could begin with using basic civilian models that are available for purchase online and in stores.
"You can go to Brookstone and buy a drone," Kelly told the crowd.
“The only thing we would do is maybe use the cheap $250 ones to take a look and see the size of the demonstration or something along those lines,” Colvin quotes him as saying.
The Federal Aviation Administration is still ironing out a rulebook for how UAVs will be used domestically in the years to come. Currently, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) rely on the spy planes to secure the country’s borders. Dozens of smaller agencies across the country have applied to use drones too, though, a decision that has led to a large amount of concern from civil liberty advocates that say blanketing surveillance violates the US Constitution’s Fourth Amendment.
"The law hasn't caught up with the technology," Trevor Timm of the Electronic Frontier Foundation told the Oakland Tribune last year. "There are no rules of the road for how they operate these things."
Months earlier, Timm and another member of the EFF led a discussion about drones at the Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) conference in New York. There they said the surveillance drones currently being manufactured have the capability to “zoom in and read a milk carton from 60,000 feet” in the air.
Just recently, the sheriff of Alameda County, California postponed a public discussion regarding his plans to procure a surveillance drone after news of the proposal spurred a grassroots opposition campaign. Down state in San Diego, the county Sheriff’s Office has come under fire from journalists who say law enforcement is withholding information about plans for an UAV. When the website MuckRack insisted they had proof that San Diego County was issued information about obtaining a drone, officials fired back "there is very little public benefit in the release of such records.”
Should New York City secure a drone of their own, there is little one could do that isn’t already possible in NYC. As of last year, the NYPD had access to around 2,000 surveillance cameras on just the island of Manhattan.
We heard from Lady Heroin during the bird-dogging of Bryant her list of 5% working for the 1% and on that list was Brandon Scott and Nick/Marilyn Mosby. Citizens in our underserved communities are under attack because of the militarized policing and security policies written in NGOs like RAND CORPORATION and installed by this PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE. There's Eric Costello, Jack Young's support brought him Baltimore Development/Hopkins backing during the primary. These are the committees in US cities deemed International Economic Zones Wall Street is sure to staff with pols creating SOCIAL BENEFIT for militarized policing policies----I'm sure it was Brandon Scott pushing police cameras.
As NGOs fill the heads of a new middle-class with all the stories of more and more security and militarized surveillance we see these voters as the ones falling behind Baltimore City Hall candidates towing the same Master Plan line over and over. Tough on crime----if citizens do not WAKE UP to injustice for one we will all be experiencing EVERYTHING IS A CRIME IN AUTOCRACIES.
These are the people passing all of HOPKINS/RAND CORPORATION/BUSH/CHENEY MILITARY CORPORATE COMPLEX INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC ZONE SECURITY POLICIES.
I love and respect my veteran citizens but I am very weary of how many former military are filling our city halls especially in International Economic Zone cities like Baltimore.

THIS TIME THE SOCIAL BENEFIT WAS SUPPOSEDLY PROTECTING BLACK CITIZENS BEING EXPOSED TO SWAT TEAM ABUSES.
This video shows you for what these police camera policies were REALLY for. It brings army helmet camera policy to our communities and create the same International Economic Zone security policy in US cities as in developing nations and war zones.

A Chilling Home Invasion … by Police Officers
August 20, 2013 @ 3:47 PM by Tim Lynch
More background here.
It is one thing to say, “Don’t let the police in your home without a warrant … but when you hear these men bang on the door in the middle of the night, yelling “Open the door!!” you realize it is not always an easy thing to do.
Question: Would the officers be disciplined if a camera had not been capturing their actions on tape?
I want to say this-----If the sheriff's department comes to my door at 1:00AM shouting the wrong address with several police officers with flood lights refusing to identify WHY THEY WERE THERE------I would not open the door and run for my video camera. This is not America -----we do not have police officers denying basic civil rights with citizens having NO RECOURSE. The immediate reference to using a tazer simply because a citizen is STILL TRYING TO FIND OUT WHY THE POLICE WERE AT THE DOOR.
When we have politicians thinking this is how police policy should look----we have politicians not seeing us as citizens. They are seeing us as subjects. This kind of behavior creates fear----this is when the 1% move from political asymmetric warfare of the CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA----to what will become next decade the militarized asymmetric warfare. We are not hearing police officers identifying charges, showing warrants, sharing with citizens police statutes supporting their actions---they are simply telling us to SHUT UP. I have had several police in Baltimore tell me to JUST SHUT UP.
Dekalb County Sheriffs Department Police Brutality On my Family.
Published on Jul 30, 2013Sign the petition for the immediate removal and prosecution of these officers
At around 1:30am my family and I were awaken by the sound of loud and aggressive banging at our front door. The Aggressive nature of the banging frightened us so I walked into the guest room that looks over the front of our house and was shocked when I saw 3 large Dekalb County Sheriff SUV's with large flood lights pointed at our house and windows.
when i walked back into the hallway the person that was banging at the door started yelling "i saw yo' ass open the door!" i responded "what is this about? why are you here?" the person then responded "I'm not telling you shit, what you think this is?" so at this point my brother woke up as well my mother. we all are petrified at the aggression coming from the sheriffs outside our door. We continue asking why they are here and they continue to refuse to tell us only occasionally saying "open the mother fucking door nigga"
I call the police and tell the operator what is going on, and that I do not feel safe opening the door because they will not tell me why they are here and they are behaving extremely aggressive.
I specifically ask the operator if she would send the police captain to the scene to ensure that we would not be harmed when we open the door, she said ok.
I waited about another 20-25 minutes for police to show up. No police ever showed up.
My brother, mother and myself all went to the door and let the sheriffs know that we were going to open the door and come out.
My mother opens the door and steps out and says "I'm a Christian woman don't hurt my family" she was immediately hand cuffed.
The remainder of the sheriffs then entered my house and attacked me and my brother. One of the sheriffs drew a weapon and struck me with it on the head.
As I am laying facedown on the floor I am repeatedly kicked in the head and back and one of the sheriffs stood on my head with both feet.
The other sheriffs at this point are attacking my brother and threatening to Taser him if he says anything else.
It this point both myself and my brother are both pleading with the sheriffs to stop and asking why are we being handcuffed.
The sheriffs that entered my house entered illegally, I found out after they left from a family friend that they were here on an arrest warrant for my mother.
If that is the reason they were here, once they arrested my mother when she was outside, they had no reason to enter my home.
They did not have a search warrant.
The events took place on the first level of my home.
Sheriffs illegally searched my entire house and removed items from my mothers purse which are now missing including $48.
the sheriffs also verbally berated myself and my brother calling us "big mother fuckers, dumb asses, retarded niggers"
and verbally threatened us saying "i wish i could cane y'all asses"
When Sargent Magee was asked by a family friend why this happened he responded "we did this because they made a scene filming us."
