Nationwide Human Trafficking Stings Ensnare Multiple Cops—84 Kids As Young As 3 Months Freed

By Matt Agorist

Multiple undercover sting operations across the United States were carried out this month targeting adult and child sex trafficking. The results of many of these stings netted hundreds of arrests—including doctors, pharmacists, high-level military officers, and law enforcement officers. Dozens of children were also rescued — including one as young as three months old.

“That’s the most we have ever arrested in the history of the sheriff’s office,” Sheriff Grady Judd said of his undercover operation in Polk County, Florida.

The sheriff is referring to the 277 people rounded up in “Operation No Tricks, No Treats” which started last Tuesday and ran through Monday.

According to the sheriff’s office, as reported by WFLA, 51 of the arrests were related to those who advertise as prostitutes online and 209 of the arrests were those who solicited undercover detectives posing as prostitutes. Seventeen arrests were made for other offenses.

The sheriff noted that the arrests included lawyers, doctors, pharmacists, former and current police officers, multiple men looking to have sex with children, and convicted sex offenders.

During the bust, the sheriff even nabbed a cop in his own department. Since his arrest, Sergeant Luis Diaz has resigned from the force after 17 years.

JoAnne is absolutely correct in her posts.
The Americans with Disabilities Act, confirms the RULE OF LAW and the Constitution. In order for any involuntary incarceration under the 5th and 14th Amendments DUE PROCESS must be strictly observed.  All that this requires is NOTICE AND HEARING.  There is a District Court case in Wisconsin that suggests that in this regard Form TRUMPS Substance, and a totally biased finder of fact still meets the criteria.  However, this was not the situation!
An ex-parte commitment order to be enforced by Police Act is so wrong that it is a massive stretch for any policeman participating to not be legally and criminally culpable for any action on his part that interferes with the civil rights of a victim – in this case Andy.   (The fact that Andy may have given his key to someone is irrelevant – and the fact that he might have on social media made statements that were offensive to someone are not grounds for summary incarceration.  THIS IS NOT ALLOWABLE under the Constitution and ANY LAW THAT IS or is interpreted to deny basic DUE PROCESS is void.   A middle school student is required to know this fact – to require a well paid judge/lawyer/policeman to be aware of such a proposition is equally appropriate.
I agree with JoAnne — ANDY’s incarceration was WRONGFUL, and criminal.    All the miscreants involved ought to be charged with KIDNAPPING, tried and sent to jail!   The Gulag cannot be tolerated in America.

Regulating Rights

9/11 Gave Us The Police State With The “Patriot” Act, After Vegas Get Ready For “USA Liberty” Act

By Rachel Blevins

After 9/11, the United States government preyed on the fear felt by many Americans to justify the passage of the USA Patriot Act—a law that was supposed to prevent future terrorist attacks. Now, after the Las Vegas shooting, the government has another proposed law ready to go, and just as with the Patriot Act, it also infringes on Americans’ liberties, and does very little for their security.

The USA Liberty Act is the latest trendy name for a law that would reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2017. According to the House Judiciary Committee, the act would preserve “the core purpose of Section 702: the collection of electronic communications by non-U.S. persons for use in our nation’s defense.”

However, it should be noted that while the purpose of FISA was reportedly only to allow surveillance on the communications of foreign targets who were suspected terrorists, it has been used to spy on the communications of innocent Americans—despite the practice being ruled illegal—and any reauthorization of the law will only allow the practice to continue under the guise of “preventing terrorism.”

The USA Liberty Act claims that it will “better protect Americans’ privacy” by requiring the government to have “a legitimate national security purpose” before searching an individual’s database. Then when they do have that purpose established, they will be required to “obtain a court order based on probable cause to look at the content of communications, except when lives or safety are threatened, or a previous probable cause-based court order or warrant has been granted.”

Always Question the Official Narrative

The minute this massacre happened, calls went out for gun safety policies, stemming the tide of gun violence, banning military-style assault weapons (which by the way, are already banned for the average citizen) and creating more gun laws. Criminals and terrorists will find weapons whatever the law is because they don’t abide by the law!

Shortly after the mass shootings, the media were reporting as undisputed fact that a heavily armed “lone wolf” gunman opened fire from a 32-floor hotel room on an open-air concert on the Las Vegas Strip in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Police said Paddock, a retired accountant, killed himself before a SWAT team breached his room in the Mandalay Bay hotel overlooking the venue for the country music concert.

The anti-gun rhetoric and calls for more drastic efforts to strip citizens of the right to bear arms is simply a policy of more government, fewer individual rights and a hyper-violent, militarized nation constantly under martial law.

The reason the official story must always, without exception, be questioned is that the government has every reason to lie or at least mislead—what they might call “perception management” or “necessary illusions.”  The government must be seen as always legitimate, and always essentially rightly-guided for it to maintain its power.  So it is always in the interest of the government—in this case (and many others), embodied by the police—to make some horrible event somehow seem okay or justified (otherwise, the government’s power will eventually be threatened when people get sick of too many such horrible events, as is already happening here and abroad).  This benefit of the doubt that the media give to the government must be revoked by us, the people.  Don’t believe what they tell you anymore because there’s a good chance that the complete opposite is true.  Clinton Kirby-Liberty Road Media 

JIMMY KIMMEL BASHES GUN RIGHTS AFTER LAS VEGAS MASSACRE (BUT HAS HIS OWN ARMED SECURITY)

Talk show host’s hypocrisy exposed

 | Infowars.com – OCTOBER 3, 2017

Jimmy Kimmel Bashes Gun Rights After Las Vegas Massacre (But Has His Own Armed Security)

Jimmy Kimmel used the platform of his talk show last night to rail against gun rights in the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre but failed to mention the fact that he has his own armed security and recently increased it.

Breaking down in tears at one point, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host said Republican lawmakers, “should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.”

The video is YouTube’s number one trending video and has received well over a million views overnight.

Kimmel went on to slam politicians who “won’t do anything about this because the NRA has their balls in a money clip,” adding that their “thoughts and your prayers are insufficient.”

He then turned the monologue into an anti-Trump rant, declaring, “There are a lot of things we could do about it. But we don’t, which is interesting because when someone with a beard attacks us, we tap phones, we invoke travel bans, we build walls, we take every possible precaution to make sure it doesn’t happen again. But when an American buys a gun and kills other Americans, then there’s nothing we can do about that.”

Breitbart’s Ian Mason debunks most of Kimmel’s claims, almost all of which had nothing to do with the weapons used by killer Stephen Paddock during Sunday night’s massacre.

But for Kimmel, it’s very much a case of do as I say, not do as I do.

A 2015 clip from his show uploaded to YouTube features one of the security guard’s whose job it is to protect Kimmel and his production staff.

When his shirt lifts up for a brief moment, the man is seen to be carrying a Glock pistol in a holster.

In other words – Kimmel is against gun rights, unless it applies to his own personal security.

Recent reports also confirm that Kimmel has beefed up his security due to the increasingly polarized and political nature of his rants.

According to the Mercury News, “Ever since the late-night show host began crusading against the effort by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, there have been “incidents with Trump supporters” that have forced him to increase security at his show tapings.”

In response, “the show has increased personnel at both the front and back entrances. This personnel consists of highly-trained, off-duty police officers.”

Judging by the video clip of the security guard above, these security guards are almost certain to be packing.

Kimmel’s hypocrisy is a reminder of the fact that many liberals rely on men carrying guns to protect them but want to deny that right to the rest of the American people.

Michael Moore, who built part of his career on tearing down the second amendment, admitted in a 2008 Larry King interview that he owns a gun and also relies on armed security.

Activist Lawyer Released

Hallelujah! Andy Ostrowski lawyer activist has been released and we have video conference he is okay

some comments from Ken Ditkowsky:

AT this point in time Andy has been free – below is a link to his interview with John Adams   – it is worth a listen – at least in part.

It is now clear that we are in fact all in danger.  As an attorney Andy had the training to know what he was facing and to deal with it; however, had the miscreants been able to drug him — he would have been a candidate for “elder cleansing!
Now that the ordeal is over, Andy indicates that he wants to get on with his life – however — the wrongful mental health arrest of Andy is a warning for every one of us — Democracy is not a spectator sport and in a flash – any one of us, including some of us who feel immune, can be hauled off to the Gulag and the next time any one sees us – they see a zombie!    A dose or two of the right chemical and  – bingo!   You are none person!

Hospital Holding Cells

From Ken Ditkowsky-Attorney Activist Andy Ostrowski still missing and what happens when a mental health issue means jail time in the US?

WHEN A MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY LANDS YOU IN JAIL

POSTED SEPTEMBER 25, 2017, 7:00 AM CDT

BY TAYLOR ELIZABETH ELDRIDGE, THE MARSHALL PROJECT

Early last year, two suicidal patients showed up at a hospital emergency room in Pierre, South Dakota, seeking help. Although the incidents happened weeks apart, both patients ended up in an unexpected place: jail.

Across the country, and especially in rural areas, people in the middle of a mental health crisis are locked in a cell when a hospital bed or transportation to a hospital isn’t immediately available. The patients are transported from the ER like inmates, handcuffed in the back of police vehicles. Laws in five states — New Mexico, North and South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming — explicitly say that correctional facilities may be used for what is called a “mental health hold.” Even in states without such laws, the practice happens regularly.

“It is a terrible solution…for what is, at the end of the day, a medical crisis,” said John Snook, executive director of the Treatment Advocacy Center, a national group that advocates for the severely mentally ill. Research shows that the risk for suicide, self-harm and worsening symptoms increases the longer a person is behind bars.

But in a shift, Colorado recently outlawed using jail to detain people in a psychiatric crisis who have not committed a crime. The state delegated just over $9 million — with $6 million coming from marijuana tax revenue — to pay for local crisis centers, training for law enforcement and transportation programs.

The new law was passed after Colorado’s sheriffs lobbied the state to extend the amount of time a person could be detained. In rural counties, sheriffs testified, lack of manpower meant they were forced to hold onto people longer than the 24-hour legal limit. A state task force instead recommended ending the practice entirely.

There are no national figures on how many people are held each year in jail just because they have nowhere else to go in a mental health crisis. Reports from the federal agency overseeing hospitals — the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — offer a glimpse. Since 2011, at least 22 hospitals in 16 states have been cited by CMS for failing to stabilize patients in need of mental health help, instead handing them over to law enforcement to wait for a psychiatric evaluation or a bed. The hospitals span the country, from Alabama and South Dakota to New York and Ohio.

The practice affects patients of all ages. At Avera St. Mary’s Hospital in Pierre, South Dakota, children from 12 to 16 were sent to spend the night in jail on at least seven occasions, CMS inspection reports show. One 16-year-old girl came to the emergency room after overdosing on Motrin and was escorted to jail less than an hour after her arrival, without a psychiatric evaluation. Hospital staff waited until the morning to notify her parents. At the same hospital, a 12-year-old girl arrived in the emergency room after an attempted hanging. She was sent to spend the night in jail less than an hour later. The hospital did not respond to requests for comment.

Few people think jail is an appropriate place for someone in a mental health crisis. Most jails, especially small rural facilities, do not have mental health staffers on site. For the suicidal, law enforcement agencies have few options other than periodically stopping by the cell to check on the person and putting potentially violent individuals in restraints and seclusion. Once someone has been held for 24 hours, he or she has to be charged, transferred to a treatment facility or released. “People should not, because of their mental illness, be in jail,” said Jennie Simpson, a public health analyst with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the federal agency that oversees national behavioral health policies.

The problem highlights a nationwide scarcity of available doctors and inpatient beds for people in a mental health crisis, particularly the poor. The number of psychiatric beds decreased by 96% across the country over the past 50 years, research shows. At the same time, awareness of mental health needs has increased and more people have access to health insurance, allowing them to seek care.

The issue was exacerbated by a 1972 federal law that was intended to help stop the widespread warehousing of people with mental illness. The law forbids the federal government from paying for inpatient mental health and drug treatment at psychiatric facilities with more than 16 beds. States are left to foot the entire medical bill for those on public insurance, straining budgets already struggling in the midst of the opioid crisis. A federal commission recently recommended that exemptions to the law be given immediately to states that request one.

In New Hampshire, a long waitlist for beds led the state to begin sending non-criminals who were ordered committed for their own safety to a prison psychiatric unit for treatment. Patients and inmates participate in the same therapy programs. During group therapy, to protect patients and staff, particularly violent inmates are placed in metal cages with a bench.

The decision of who gets sent to the sheriff and who gets to stay in the ER can have serious consequences. Baptist Memorial Hospital in Union City, Tennessee, was cited by CMS in 2012 for allowing an eye doctor to evaluate suicidal patients. The doctor discharged one patient to jail who returned to the hospital the next day after attempting suicide. He later died of his injuries.

Continued Mystery Surrounds Activist Attorney Disappearance

From KD – we are still looking for activist attorney Andy Ostrowski, taken from his home by officers against his will last week

Posted on 

No one from any of the social media or boards we know has heard from him, however, recently an unknown woman claiming to be a relative wrote to all of us to say he is fine, this has happened before and is a private matter and not to enquire further.

Whooooa.  How many times have we heard this one before.  No proof of this, never heard from her before, but it seems she “suddenly” can find all the right emails.

I find her email (without any proof of her assertions) to be most alarming.

In any case, here is an exchange of emails:  Please pray for Andy he is safe and will be released soon.  He is an amazing, talented, kind light worker and we are all very, very concerned for him.

I am including all the emails, because they may include witnesses to a crime:  false arrest and kidnapping of OA.  All emails have been forwarded to the FBI.

Andy, as a long time activist may be in grave danger.
