However what particular felony did you commit that would get you scared about anything of this magnitude about your political opinion? Frankly I think you and Fox Mulder have a lot in common.
For the record it was a comp crime, for the record it's the only comp crime on the Department of Homeland Security's website. The crime had absolutely nothing to do with terrorism and the Dept of Homeland Sec wasn't even around at the time.
" HE IS NOT TRYING TO INFLUENCE ANYONE,"
You obviously did as you wrote this piece and got to me respond. Why else put your ravings on k5.
It's a write up with facts, and my own opinions I believe I'm entitled to them as much as you are.
" HE DOES NOT NEED ANY MORE VISITS"
So you obviously have had visits in the first place interesting, something that could be elaborated about a little bit for credibility sake.
" FROM THOSE IN GOVERNMENT WHO WILL MISCONSTRUE WHAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN."
Is your parole officer that scary? Please don't tell me you think that the FBI has their entire investigative division on your ass.
For your information right after my case an entire FBI department was created in conjuction with the District Attorney's office. For the record Mary Jo White, and the entire FBI comp crimes division sat through trial. For the record, the day after the trial I was re-visited by the Secret Service who wanted to `speak to me` since I had assisted in tracking down pedophiles and had a list with 2000+ more pedophiles that ended up going to Interpol after someone told the SS agents they were not to speak to me. For the record two months after I was arrested I was offered a position as a compsec admin for the Dept of Justice and my lawyer still has the copy. Wanna put some money on this, I'll have it certified, notarized and sent to you any time.
" IT IS BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THIS ARTICLE THE AUTHOR CHOOSES TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS TO AVOID FACING PERSECUTION,"
We'll get to this later but for now let me dismiss this as ranting on the order of stupid problems that don't happen.
You actually forgot to mention any real enforcement of anything like the Patriot Act. Not a single "innocent" American has been harmed from this particular bill.
Could it be that the government is under such scrutiny from groups like the ACLU, EFF, and others? Could it be people are watching and waiting for the gov to unleash. Whatever the case is, it is a new bill so what are the thresholds for this. Are you implying the bil is a great work of art?
Even less likely.
Ever hear of Jim Bell, or do you think he was actually stalking a federal agent. Some 5'4 pudgy nerd following an armed law enforcement agent. Ok sure it's possible. why not for argument's sake.
" MAYBE EVEN... EXECUTION."
Reading too much espionage fiction while on shrooms isn't good for you.
Sarcasm I'm a prick most of the time.
" whether many choose to realize it or pass it off as a conspiracy theory."
In other words I'm right no matter who disagrees.
No it means in other words take it for what it's worth means nothing to me how you want to take it. I am not spoon feeding you something to think, I think everything should be analysed thoroughly, and nothing should be taken as full-fledged fact. All at best someone could do is point out relevance which in my opinion I did, your opinion I didn't but we both know the opinion asshole saying don't we
Ie. K5 whines about things that are largely falsifiable with the right ammount of work and thinking and are held in irrational belief.
I don't represent k5 I represent myself. How can you say anything in the article is falsifiable, does this mean you deny that the US is not imprisoning more people, do you believe the US is getting better? Anyways back to the *fun*
I also think that this stems from a lack of basic knowledge of government, law, case law, and history. If you come from another country I would hold you to a much higher standard than this. For fuck's sake not many people can even understand why an election not going their way and their lack of knowledge about the electoral college isn't grounds for dictatorship charges.
Actually I understand enough, and although I may not have written a PhD thesis, I understand why my case went to trial. For the record, when the FBI agents arrested me and took me out of my house, you know what they said? "We know you didn't do this but we have to take you anyway." I passed it off as a joke. Now during the ending of the trial there was substantial evidence to show how this machine was broken into. Do you think it was taken by the DA? No let me tell you what was said in a federal court in front of me my attorney the clerk of the court, etc., "Oh we got who we want that's sil" EOF
Since this chop up of yours is rather long, I'm gonna cut to the portions I find amusing...
" coming from an everyday citizens perspective. "
You sound more like a k5 activist. Want to know how? Well you were able to pass a story past k5's submission queue and you more or less got your point across in a manner that indicates that you share the majority opinion on this site (extreme minority in the rest of the world).
On that basis I don't consider your life to be ordinary. Also you manage to read Russian papers (in the original Russian unless they have translations). Add to that the random (probably federal) criminal convictions and you are most largely *not* typical but that's just me.
Actually they post it in english too. But for the record since you apparently read but didn't grasp, you would notice I stated was responding to a post at the Pravda forum which is like any other forum. For the record I am Spanish but speak Russian, minor German, Swedish, Italian, Spanish, English, and some Cantonese.
"Here are some reasons why it may be possible for some agency to have complete control in the United States via obscure methods."
Which "agency" is this? God this sounds like the plot of some crappy recon game for the PS2.
Repeat after me Spliter Cell is just a game.
By the way laws aren't that obscure of a method I mean you weant away via said "obscure methods" or am I just ignoring something obvious?
Maybe you should re-read instead of playing the pseudo-analyst. You might have noticed I made mention that I didn't want people to take this as some conspiracy theorist article, and in fact some can see why, when they don't understand what is being written sort of similar to the way you're taking it.
But you are supposed to be convincing me of this remember? I think you are supposed to pick one.
The article is not meant to convince anyone of anything it's a personal opinion just as most articles are.
" and form their own opinions not follow someone else's."
Like you'r own right?
That's right I don't want anyone to follow my opinion. The article was written to make people aware of a situation whether some people feel it is a good thing is in their right, whether someone enjoys seeing more people incarcerated, it's their right. One thing I've tried to be is fair about life. I even tolerate racists, it's how I try to stay humble.
Where is it said that you can't vote if you have commited a crime in the past. Maybe *durring* your stay but that dosn't really matter.
Are you serious about this or are you overdoing the Redbull or something else. Here sort through this voting issue on your own if you'd like
" "We're talking about a large number of people . bigger than a lot of countries in Western Europe . who face the barriers that exist when you have been in the correctional system," said Jason Zeidenberg, director of policy and research at the Justice Policy Institute, which advocates alternatives to prison. "That's a really upsetting number."
Exactly which kinds of "alternatives" do they seriously offer that people would accept?
I can't speak for Jason Zeidenberg.
Which as I have pointed out before hasn't been seriously used on an innocent person (or to my mind anyone who wasn't actually *shock* a terrorist in the first place. There has not been *one* person who has actually been indicted under these provisions at all who didn't have the name of Mohammed.
Ahh I thought it would come out eventually, some 'Mohammed' like comment. How do you know it hasn't been used yet, do you follow case law that much? Do you know according to the cybersecurity enhancement act, you could be tried as a terrorist for comp-related crimes. Do you know that at that rate you could rob 20 banks shoot 10 people and do less time than someone charged as a terrorist.
So what happens if by chance they make a mistake in arresting you, do you know how difficult it would be to restore your name if your case was high profile... Anyways back to *fun fun fun* Shall we?
"Many often had plead guilty either to protect other members of their family from the threat of an indictment by government agents or government prosecuting attorneys;"
I can't see how this could possibly happen unless you did something *big*. God do you know how insignificant the level of federal criminals compared to the more mundane people convicted of crimes?
Can you say you've been to federal court because I have, and I know first hand the bullshit that was told to me 'Your wife set you up.", "Your sister set you up.", "we need to see all your financial records for the past 5 years, does your mother pay taxes, did she claim you.", there is a lot of crap the gov throws your way if you decide to take something to trial.
My case, I was facing 10 years on 2 counts. I was offered 1year first time around. 6 months second time around. Final time 60 day split 30 days jail, 30 with an electronic bracelet. I still went to trial facing 10 years. Do you think if I had really done something I wouldn't have copped a plea? Let's see 10 years 30 days... 10 years 30 days.... Please. go through what I have then come back to me and we'll talk about the shady shit you don't see about. Who the hell am I going to complain to about some shoddy shit the DA and FBI is doing. The judge? Oh sure.
You have to be either a drug dealer, a terrorist, a maffia man or something like that to really get busted by the feds. I can't stress this enough people.
This is perhaps the funniest and most moronic statement you've made throughout your post. I suggest drinking more Redbull or load up on some serious caffeine there guy. You've still got a lot to learn. It's ok though many of us were wet behind the ears one point in life.
Apologies to those who sit through what has become a painfully long thread.
