I have written an update today (Thursday, June 30, 2022) to this webpage, and it’s given at this link here.
I have written an update today (Wednesday, January 19, 2022) to this webpage, and it’s given at this link here.

3 IMPORTANT AND RELEVANT NEWS STORIES AND THEIR WEB-LINKS:

(1). “F.B.I. Agents Became C.I.A. Operatives in Secret Overseas Prisons” by Carol Rosenberg in The N. Y. Times on Nov. 19, 2021.
Alternative-WebLink: F.B.I. Agents Became C.I.A. Operatives in Secret Overseas Prisons.

(3). CIA Is Expanding Domestic Operations; by Dana Priest.

NEWEST UPDATE to this webpage on Monday, Oct. 24, 2022 and Monday, Sep. 19, 2022:

After I discovered the free legal document website– Court Listener— some months ago, I began to use its feature that makes it possible for Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Activists such as myself to upload federal case documents to Court Listener, so that attorneys and peaceful civil rights activists are able to view the federal court filings for free.

The way the Court Listener website works is that as long as you:
– Use either the Google Chrome web browser or the Mozilla Firefox web browser;
– Download and activate the free web browser extension (it’s a completely safe browser extension);
– You have an online PACER account where you can view federal case documents online by being able to pay for the documents using a credit card that you have on file in the PACER system.

Each time you are logged into your PACER account and when you pay and view a legal document from a federal criminal case or federal civil case, the Chrome/Firefox extension will automatically upload that legal document directly to Court Listener, so attorneys and other peaceful civil liberties activists can from then on, view that federal court document/filing for free.

Thus, in the past few months, I have paid and uploaded some Federal Court documents to the Court Listener website pertaining to several federal criminal cases and federal civil lawsuits that I find interesting.  Those cases are:

CATO INSTITUTE v. FBI, 21-CV-1054 (D.DC April 2021):
This lawsuit is related to nationwide surveillance being conducted by FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs):

https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/59826581/cato-institute-v-federal-bureau-of-investigation/

UNITED STATES v. JEREMY BROWN, 21-CR-0348 (M.D. Florida October, 2021):
This criminal case is pertaining to a retired, former U.S. Army Commando (who had served in the elite 75th Ranger Regiment and also as a Green Beret Special Forces Soldier) who is being criminally prosecuted in regard to the Jan. 6th riot and due to weapons violations. This case is also significant because it involves Cops using Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Warrants and prosecutors using the
Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA):
https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/60661563/united-states-v-brown/

UNITED STATES v. AL-AZHARI, 20-CR-00206 (M.D. Florida May, 2020):
This criminal case is an example where Federal Agents Tricked and Lied to Mr. Al-Azhari’s Sister in order to get evidence against him to prosecute him. This is a common trick-of-the-trade that Cops employ, by Lying and Deceiving Family Members of Those They Target in order to acquire or “manufacture” evidence so they can successfully prosecute their target. This case is also significant because it involves Cops using Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Warrants and prosecutors using the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA):
https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/17288744/united-states-v-al-azhari/

TODD ENGEL v. UNITED STATES, 22-CV-01040 (D. Nevada June, 2022):
This lawsuit against the FBI, the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), and the DOJ pertains to the 2016 federal criminal prosecution of several supporters of Bunkerville, Nevada Rancher Mr. Cliven Bundy, His 4 Sons, and Mr. Bundy’s supporters. The government prosecution fell apart when BLM Agent and Very Courageous Whistleblower Mr. Larry Wooten revealed numerous outrageous misconducts that had been committed by Federal Agents in order to build a criminal case against Mr. Bundy, His 4 Sons, and Mr. Bundy’s supporters like Mr. Todd Engel:
https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/63571509/engel-v-united-states/

UNITED STATES v. JOSHUA MARTINEZ, 21-CR-0219 (D. Nevada August, 2021):
This criminal case pertains to apparently a well-known First Amendment Auditor of Cops (i.e., a Cop Watcher) in Las Vegas, who was arrested for weapon violations and other criminal charges. One of the document-sets that I uploaded– Docket No. 36 from Aug. 18, 2022– has very good information for attorneys and peaceful civil liberties activists, on various types of Search Warrants (i.e., Search Warrants pertaining to Residential, Online Social Media, Smartphones and Computers, etc.) that are used:
https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/60376648/united-states-v-martinez/

DALANEA TAYLOR v. SHERIFF CHRIS NOCCO, 21-CV-00555 (M.D. Florida October, 2021):
This lawsuit pertains to the county-wide Surveillance Program involving “Predictive Policing” that Sheriff Nocco implemented several years ago in Pasco County, Florida:
https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/59720358/taylor-v-nocco/

Also, this past week, I watched several Youtube videos that were put out by Mr. John Kiriakou– the December, 2007 CIA Whistleblower and a former CIA Case Officer with the CIA Clandestine Servicethe Coalition for Civil Freedoms, and Defending Rights & Dissent:

In the below Youtube video, the director of the documentary WITNESS Dr. Masood Haque and Attorney Kathy Manley speak on several important issues pertaining to how FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs) Lie, Trick, and Entrap Gullible/Naive people who are Not Familiar with the Many Dirty Tactics that these Cops Regularly Employ. Attorney Manley reveals an important but unpleasant experience (one that I’m very familiar with) at 15-Minutes and 40-Seconds of the video. Dr. Haque makes an important point at the end about these “Entrapment Counter-Terrorism Operations” that are regularly “Manufactured” by FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to JTTFs. The PRIMARY BENEFICIARIES from these “Entrapment Counter-Terrorism Operations” are These Cops and Their Families because of the Year-End $$$Budget & Finance Funding Increase$$$ that their Agencies and Departments Demand and Consequently Receive from Federal, State, County, and Municipal Politicians:

————————————————————————————————————–

In the below speech, Mr. John Kiriakou– the December, 2007 CIA Whistleblower and former CIA Case Officer who worked for the CIA Clandestine Service— speaks on various important issues:

Since we’re on the topic of FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs), and CIA Case Officers like Mr. Kiriakou who worked for the CIA Clandestine Service, there is a Very Secretive Unit within the CIA called the Central Intelligence Agency’s National Resources Division (aka “CIA NR”, aka “CIA National Resources”) which does Extensive Domestic Spying Within the United States in very close coordination with FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs). Below are 2 news articles pertaining to this Highly Secretive CIA Unit:
(1). The Biggest Little CIA Shop You’ve Never Heard Of; by Jeff Stein
(2). CIA Is Expanding Domestic Operations; by Dana Priest.

————————————————————————————————————–

End of this month (September, 2022) marks 12-years since FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs) began their Relentless Pursuit and Targeting of me, in part because of my Peaceful Advocacy of Our First Amendment Rights and Our Second Amendment Rights, and in part because I was a Muslim from Sep., 2010 to April, 2013.

People say that hindsight is 20-20, and indeed it is. If I could go back in time:

(1).
I would watch/read/listen to the above noted videos and books so that I would Not have been SO NAIVE and CLUELESS regarding How Cops Actually Operate in the United States.

(2).
When Cops TARGET a Person, They will initially Begin with PHYSICAL SURVEILLANCE and start to Gather Evidence Against Their Target. It’s relatively easy for Cops– when they follow you in SURVEILLANCE TEAMS Everywhere you go– to find some QUANTUM OF EVIDENCE that they can use to get a Judge to authorize a Search Warrant [eg., a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Search Warrant pursuant to 50 U.S.C. § 1804 (authorizing Electronic Surveillance under FISA); 50 U.S.C. § 1823 (authorizing Physical Searches under FISA); 50 U.S.C. § 1842; and 50 U.S.C. § 1862].

In case you mistakenly think that FISA Search Warrants can only be used against foreigners or immigrants living in the USA or in another country, read the following article regarding FISA’s ‘Two-Hop’ Loophole:
FISA’s License to Hop; by J.E. Dyer.

Also, read the following 3 books and you’ll realize that it’s Not Difficult for Cops to Find Some Violation of a Federal or State Penal Code on pretty much anybody, which they then can piggy-back on, in order to use as evidence to Justify Obtaining a Search Warrant:
(i). Three Felonies A Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent; by Law Professor Harvey Silverglate.
(ii). One Nation Under Arrest: How Crazy Laws, Rogue Prosecutors, and Activist Judges Threaten Your Liberty; by Paul Rosenzwieg and Brian W. Walsh.
(iii). You Have the Right to Remain Innocent; by Law Professor James Duane.

It’s when Cops Exaggerate/Lie and obtain a Search Warrant that they really get to Look into Your Most Personal Life and View Everything You Do any time they want. If the Cops get FISA Search Warrants, they will see you having Sex With Your Wife/Husband, You Taking a Shower Naked, You Defecating and Urinating in Your Restroom, you Laying on Your Bed and perhaps inadvertently Your Genitals are Exposed because you’re completely relaxed, feeling safe because you’re inside your home and thus are not guarded or paying attention.
Sure, the Cops are Supposed to Stop Watching When You’re Doing Extremely Personal and Intimate Things, BUT WHO IS THERE TO WATCH OVER THEIR SHOULDER TO ENSURE THAT THEY STOP WATCHING? NO ONE.

The truth is that FBI Investigative Specialists or FBI Special Agents (These Cops ALWAYS Work in Multiple Teams) who are parked a block or two away from your house/apartment or who are living next-door to your home or very close to your home, have the God-like Power to:
– See You Naked,
– See You Defecating or Urinating,
– See You Having Sex with Your Spouse or Girlfriend.
– See You Laying on Your Bed in an Unguarded State and You Not Realizing that Your Genitals are Inadvertently Exposed,
IN REAL TIME by simply using His/Her Smartphone to connect to Several Tiny Audio-Video Cameras that have been placed all over Your Home and At Least One Camera that has been placed Inside Your Vehicle.
She/He Can also See in REAL TIME All That You’re Doing on Your Computers, Tablets, and Smartphone– What You’re Typing, What You’re Viewing on the Computer Screen and Smartphone Screen, and Hear What You’re Speaking in Your Conversations on Your Smartphone.

This is because, once the Cops obtain the Search Warrants from the Judge, one of the Special Teams that Specialize in Breaking Into Homes/Apartments/Vehicles and Installing Tiny Audio-Video Cameras (Which Record All Audio & Video) WILL Break Into Your Home/Apartment AND Vehicle and Install Multiple, Tiny Audio-Video Cameras that are extremely difficult to discover because of their sophistication. The following 2 articles discuss this:
(1). The Secret Surveillance Tools Available to Cops:
https://theintercept.com/surveillance-catalogue/category/survey-equipment/

(2). FBI Searched Data of Millions of Americans Without Warrants
; by Chris Strohm:
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-04-29/fbi-searched-the-data-of-millions-of-americans-without-warrants
(3). How to Sweep For Bugs and Hidden Cameras – To keep them from listening in, take a very good look around you. And then bust out the tools; by Lily Hay Newman:
https://www.wired.com/story/how-to-sweep-for-bugs/

Additionally, Computer and Electronic Hackers working for the FBI’s Remote Operations Unit (aka “FBI ROU”) or Private Hackers Hired by the Cops (“Remote Assistance Team” members) will Break/Hack into Your Computers and Smartphone so that FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who’re attached to JTTFs have Easy and Ready Access in Real Time, to All That You Do on Your Computers and Smartphone.

In my case, I have realized over the years that during one of the times that the Cops Broke Into My Home, they most probably took the additional safeguard of Surreptitiously Connecting Some Tiny Electronic Device (I Suspect it’s probably a Radio Frequency RF Device that Allows the “Police Hacker” Direct Connection to My Desktop PC, probably via a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Cellular RF Connection).

Some years back, in trying to figure out (i.e., solve a sort of Scientific Puzzle) how the Police Hacker is so effortlessly able to break into my Desktop PC, I removed the small printed circuit board that was the Wi-Fi Transceiver of the Desktop PC.
No change.
Of course, it goes without saying that if I had discovered that the Wi-Fi Transceiver was the Police Hacker’s method of entry/break-in to my Desktop PC, after having solved that electronic puzzle so to speak, I would have reconnected the Wi-Fi Transceiver back into my Desktop PC in order to Avoid Being Criminally Charged Possibly with some type of ‘Obstruction of Justice’ type criminal charge under either the Federal Code or Florida State Penal Code.

Over the years, I have also used various Microsoft Windows operating systems and Linux operating systems, but that has not revealed the Source of the Computer Attack. I have installed and reinstalled Clean, Protected Copies of Windows-10 and Ubuntu Linux, but even when I have Not Connected my freshly installed Desktop PC to the Internet at all, shortly after logging into the computer, I see behavior/signs/indicators in my computer that reveal to me that the Police Hacker has gotten into my Desktop PC.

My guess is that most probably, some innocuous computer peripheral or device that is connected to my Desktop PC (i.e., a keyboard or mouse, a USB hub, etc.) is actually a device that has been surreptitiously switched by the Police Break-In Squad. In other words, the Cops probably took, say one of the USB hubs and Secretly Switched it with one that they had brought with them that looked exactly like the original, but unknown to me has, shall we say “a Lot More Additional Capabilities and Functionalities!”

Another likely possibility is that Computer Firmware Hacking that had been used by the National Security Agency (the NSA), since apparently the mid-90’s, is being used by the FBI’s Remote Operations Unit (FBI ROU) Hackers to Target People that the FBI and the JTTF are HUNTING– such as me. The following 2 articles discuss the concept behind Computer Firmware Hacking as applied to Computer Internal Hard Disks.

A brief summary about me and how I came to be in the cross-hairs of Cops (i.e., FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, ATF Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guards, etc.) from approx. September, 2010:

My name is Umesh Heendeniya, I live in Hernando County, Florida, and have lived here since mid-2014. Prior to that I lived in Massachusetts. I have Never been Convicted of a Felony, and for many years I have been a Peaceful Advocate for The First Amendment Rights and The Second Amendment Rights Contained in The Bill of Rights. I have done my Lawful, Peaceful Advocacy of The First Amendment Rights and The Second Amendment Rights by, in part, having created some years back several Online Websites pertaining these rights, and having created many years ago several Online Web Repositories (Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, Dropbox, ScribD, Box, Slideshare, etc.) that contain many Adobe PDF Documents and Videos.

Approx. June, 2010, I posted a book review on Mr. Mumia Abu Jamal’s book– “Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners v. the USA.” About 3 months later, I began an online romantic relationship with a lady “who supposedly lived in Iran,” and a few weeks later began following the Muslim faith (from Fall, 2010 to April, 2013 when I reverted back to Christianity). Shortly after I began communicating with this Iranian lady, members of the Massachusetts Joint Terrorism Task Force (Massachusetts JTTF) began– somewhat covertly– surveilling me, and this lasted until I moved to Florida in mid-2014.

From approx. late-January, 2015 to the Present, “FBI Special Agents” and “FBI Investigative Specialists” of the Tampa-Orlando FBI field office, “Special Deputy U.S. Marshals” assigned to the Tampa-Orlando Joint Terrorism Task Force (Tampa-Orlando JTTF) and/or members of the Tampa-Orlando ATF have been Intensely, Aggressively, and Overtly Surveilling me, Stalking me, and Harassing me. On Jan. 15, 2016, 3 members of the Tampa-Orlando JTTF forcefully Interrogated me against my will through Coercion, even though I had promptly invoked my “Right to Remain Silent” and my “Right to Counsel,” right at the beginning of the interaction with them at my doorstep. Later, through Florida’s version of FOIA (Florida Statute Section 119.07), I found out that 2 of them were FBI Agents with the Tampa-Orlando FBI office while the 3rd was “a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal and a Sheriff’s Detective” with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO in Florida).

I have continued to be Aggressively, In-Your-Face Overtly, and Excessively Surveilled, Harassed, Stalked and Intimidated by “Special Agents” and “Investigative Specialists” of the FBI field office, “Special Deputy U.S. Marshals” assigned to the Tampa-Orlando JTTF, Deputies with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, and on information and belief members of the Tampa-Orlando ATF (On information and belief, members of the Tampa-Orlando ATF are using several of my Online Websites that I’ve created over the years as Pretextual Justification to Surveil, Harass, and Intimidate Me). Because of controlling U.S. Supreme Court case law (such as: Laird v. Tatum, 408 U.S. 1 (1972)) and its progeny in the U.S. Courts of Appeal, there’s not much I can do through litigation, other than silently suffer.

The fact is, Cops (i.e., FBI Special Agents, FBI Investigative Specialists, ATF Agents, Deputy Sheriffs, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, State Troopers, Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guards, etc.) HAVE WEAPONIZED THEIR SURVEILLANCE AUTHORITIES, in order to PUNISH AND DETER PEACEFUL CIVIL RIGHTS & CIVIL LIBERTIES ACTIVISTS (i.e., The Target/Mark of these Rogue Cops) from Advocating for the Protections and Safeguards embodied in The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights (i.e., my Online Websites on the Internet, where I’ve Advocated for The First Amendment Rights and The Second Amendment Rights Contained in The Bill of Rights AND my Online Web Repositories).

Thus, Cops USING THE PRETEXT OF CONDUCTING COUNTERTERRORISM OR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS have engaged– for the past approx. 11 years– in Blatantly Overt, In-Your-Face, Aggressive, and Excessive Surveillance of Me (Their Target) for the Purpose of Harassing, Stalking, and Intimidating a Peaceful Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Activist.


This website will contain the pleadings, motions, legal memoranda, and briefs from the lawsuit that I will be filing against The Joint Terrorism Task Force (“JTTF”)(2nd info source: JTTFs across the country)(3rd info source, Youtube video titled: “Bad Partners: Why Local Law Enforcement Should Leave FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (Feb 11, 2021); by Brennan Center for Justice“). I’m filing the lawsuit, in part, to challenge the constitutionality of 18 USC § 922(g)(4). Some of the claims I will bring up in the legal action include:

  1. The allegation that the 18 USC Section 922(g)(4) statute violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution (via the Fifth Amendment),
  2. The allegation that the 18 USC § 922(g)(4) statute violates the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,
  3. The allegation that the 18 USC Section 922(g)(4) statute violates the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution (via the Fifth Amendment),
  4. The allegation that agents from a “Hernando County Special Task Force” (FBI agents Thomas F. Miller and Sonya Yongue from the Tampa-Orlando Joint Terrorism Task Force (Tampa-Orlando JTTF) and “Special Deputy U.S. Marshal and Hernando County Sheriff’s Detective” David Kortman) harmed me (i.e., Federal Tort Claims Act, Bivens Claim, and either a Monell Claim or an Individual Capacity 42 USC § 1983 Claim),
  5. The allegation that agents from a “Hernando County Special Task Force” (FBI agents Thomas F. Miller and Sonya Yongue from the Tampa-Orlando Joint Terrorism Task Force (Tampa-Orlando JTTF) and “Special Deputy U.S. Marshal and Hernando County Sheriff’s Detective” David Kortman) violated my Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination,
  6. The allegation that agents from a “Hernando County Special Task Force” (FBI agents Thomas F. Miller and Sonya Yongue from the Tampa-Orlando Joint Terrorism Task Force (Tampa-Orlando JTTF) and “Special Deputy U.S. Marshal and Hernando County Sheriff’s Detective” David Kortman) violated my Fifth Amendment Pre-Arrest right to speak to an attorney, via the Miranda v. Arizona decision, the Due Process clause of the Fifth Amendment, Edwards v. Arizona, 451 U.S 477 (1981), Rhode Island v. Innis, 446 U.S. 291 (1980), and Davis v. United States, 512 U.S. 452 (1994) U.S. Supreme Court decisions,
  7. Trespass tort claim against the FBI and the Hernando County Sheriff’s office,
  8. Failure to Intervene claim against the FBI and the Hernando County Sheriff’s office,
  9. Invasion of privacy claim against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE or ATF), the FBI, and the U.S. Postal Service,
  10. Violation of the FOIA/PA Act against the BATFE, the FBI, and the U.S. Postal Service.

I intend my lawsuit to also shed light on government (Federal and County) waste, fraud, abuse, and illegality. I will file the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida – Tampa Division

But these one-dimensional displays actually do harm by presenting cops as being solely friends and allies to the public at-large, rather than offering a truthful depiction of the deeply violent and racist nature of police work in America.”

Bad Partners: Why Local Law Enforcement Should Leave FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (Feb 11, 2021); by Brennan Center for Justice:


Cops (i.e., FBI Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Municipal Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guards, etc.) are EXPERTS at LYING and Engaging in DECEPTION. Thus, WHENEVER ANYONE SPEAKS TO A COP, it would be Very Prudent of him/her to USE HIS/HER SMARTPHONE TO VIDEO-RECORD OR AUDIO-RECORD ALL INTERACTIONS With ANY COP.
10 RULES FOR DEALING WITH POLICE (April 30, 2012); by Flex Your Rights
:

WARNING: Do Not Talk to Federal Agents (i.e., FBI Agents, ATF Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, etc.) or You May Find Yourself In Jail.
Watch the Below Video Titled “PROTECT YOURSELF FROM FBI MANIPULATION (With Massachusetts Based Attorney and Author Harvey Silverglate); by ACLU of Massachusetts.
18 U.S.C. Section 1001 – “Lying to Federal Agents”: Learn how the FBI can manipulate what you say and use it against you, and how to prevent them from doing so! With Civil Liberties and Civil Rights Attorney Harvey Silverglate (author of the book “THREE FELONIES A DAY: HOW THE FEDS TARGET THE INNOCENT“).

  • Cops (i.e., FBI Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Municipal Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guardsetc.) are EXPERTS at LYING and Engaging in DECEPTION. Thus, WHENEVER ANYONE SPEAKS TO A COP, it would be Very Prudent of him/her to use her SMARTPHONE to VIDEO-RECORD OR AUDIO-RECORD ALL INTERACTIONS With ANY COP.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: The FBI DOES NOT allow their interviews to be recorded? Why is that? Because they think they are above questioning and anything they say is truth. If they allow recordings then a citizen could prove they did not lie or the incident did NOT occur as the FBI wrote in their report. If that is not a clue then I can’t help you.
  • Talking and Cooperating with the Government Never Turns Out Well and Can ALWAYS Backfire and the Government Can USE IT AGAINST YOU.
  • Know Your Rights, Ask for an Attorney and NEVER Give a Statement Before You Request an Attorney.

DON’T TALK TO THE POLICE; by Law Professor James Duane of Regent University School of Law.
Regent Law Professor James Duane gives you startling reasons why you should ALWAYS EXERCISE YOUR 5TH AMENDMENT RIGHTS when questioned by Cops (i.e., FBI Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Municipal Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guards, etc.):

The typical Modus Operandi (M/O) for Cops (i.e., FBI Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Municipal Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guards, etc.) is to Break the Law With Near Impunity and Engage in Brutal and/or Corrupt Conduct. But, in the Rare Instances When The Cops Get Caught Having Engaged in Police Brutality and/or Police Corruption, Essentially THE NEGATIVE FINANCIAL CONSEQUENCES DUE TO THEIR BRUTAL OR CORRUPT CONDUCT IS BORNE BY “WE THE PEOPLE” (i.e., THE TAX PAYERS). This is an example of A STRUCTURAL, BUILT-IN ADVANTAGE INTENTIONALLY CREATED by Powerful & Influential Law Enforcement Officers’ or Corrections Officers’ Labor Unions Over Several Decades Following the Advice in the Idiom “Heads They Win, Tails You Lose.” (In the Preceding Idiom, “They” Refers to Cops– Both as a Social Group and as an Institution– While “You” Refers to Us Civilians)

One of the Main Reason Why Cops are Able to Break The Law and Get Away With It is Because of Favorable-to-the-Cops Contractual Provisions That are Contained in Their Law Enforcement Officers’ or Corrections Officers’ Labor Union Contracts (i.e., Collective Bargaining Agreements) That Protect Them and Provide Them Unfair Advantages in the Public/Social Domain, the Media/Information Domain, the Political Domain, and the Legal Domain, in Comparison to Us Civilians. In Other Words, METHODICALLY, OVER MANY YEARS, Cops and Their Powerful Labor Unions Have “Stacked the Deck” in Their Favor to the Maximum Extent That They Can Get Away With, Thereby Intentionally Creating Several SYSTEMIC FACTORS That Make It Very Difficult to Hold Brutal and/or Corrupt Cops Accountable, and Thereby Guaranteeing to Perpetuate Police Brutality & Corruption and Also Incentivize Cops to Violate Us Civilians’ Civil Rights & Civil Liberties. Additionally, These Powerful Law Enforcement Officers’ or Corrections Officers’ Labor Unions With Deep Pockets are Regularly ABLE TO HIRE INFLUENTIAL LOBBYISTS WHO ADVANCE COPS’ INTERESTS IN THE HALLS OF POWER, and Also These Labor Unions With Deep Pockets are Able to Make Campaign Contributions to Federal, State, County, and Municipal Politicians Who Return the Favor by Crafting Legislation (i.e., Statutes, Ordinances, and Regulations) That are Favorable to Cops and Give Cops Numerous Structural, Built-In Advantages.

Cops (i.e., FBI Agents, Special Deputy U.S. Marshals, Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Municipal Police Officers, Probation & Parole Officers, Prison Guards, etc.) and Their Powerful Labor Unions Know How to “Game the System” by Manipulation, Lying and Cheating, and Getting Away With Illegal or Unethical Conduct. Another Powerful Factor is That, Structurally, LE/CO Organizations are Set Up So That an Officer/Agent/Deputy/Trooper Who Reports Another Cop Will Face Significant Challenges in Holding the Bad Cop Accountable, but the Good Cop Will Probably Face Career Problems Going Forward Due to Hostility From His Colleagues and His Superior Officers/Agents/Deputies/Troopers. Conversely, the Officer/Agent/Deputy/Trooper Who is Accused of Brutality/Corruption Has Numerous, Structurally Built-in Protections and Advantages that We Civilians Do Not Have Such As:
(1). Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill of Rights (LEOBR or LEOBOR);
(2). Nepotism in Hiring, Garrity Warnings/Rights, Kalkines Warnings/Rights;
(3). FREE, Very Good Attorneys (These Attorneys Are Not Over-Worked and Underpaid Like the Public Defenders, Who Most of Us Civilians Have to Rely On) With Plenty of Resources to Represent Them in Labor Dispute Matters, Criminal Matters, Lawsuits, etc., and These Attorneys are Paid-for by Either the Labor Union(s) or The Cops’ Agency/Department;
(4). The Rampant “Blue wall of Silence” Culture;
(5). Due to Campaign Contributions That Have Been Made by Powerful and Influential Law Enforcement Officers’ and/or Corrections Officers’ Labor Unions “With Deep Pockets” to Federal, State, County, and Municipal Politicians, These Politicians Return the Favor by Crafting Legislation (i.e., Statutes, Ordinances, and Regulations) That are Favorable to Cops and Give Cops Numerous Structural, Built-In Advantages and Protections.
(6). If the Cop is Found to be Responsible for Injuring or Murdering a Civilian, the Cop Doesn’t have to pay a Dollar Out of His Pocket; Instead Through “Indemnification Clauses” (Special Labor Union Contracts Provisions/Clauses) Written Into the Labor Union Contracts, It’s Ultimately the Tax Payers Who Live in the Jurisdiction Who Have to Pay the Injured Civilian or the Family of the Murdered Civilian. This is all due to the Enormous Power of Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers’ Labor Unions and the Very Favorable Contracts (Collective Bargaining Agreements) that the Cops’ Labor Unions Force/Pressure upon the Politicians and upon the Entities (towns/Cities, Counties, States, etc.) that hired the Cops to Serve and Protect Its Tax Payers and Residents.

One Part of the Solution to Reduce Police Brutality & Police Corruption Is:
More than 85% of Employed Americans Work Under “AT-WILL” Employment Contractual Terms, Which Dictate That AN EMPLOYEE CAN BE FIRED BY THE EMPLOYER FOR “ANY REASON OR NO REASON.” Because Collective Bargaining Agreements (i.e., LEO/CO Union Contracts) Aggressively Negotiated by Powerful Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers’ Labor Unions have Resulted in Weak Accountability of Cops Across the Country, Cops Should Only be Hired On an “AT-WILL” EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTUAL TERMS, Instead of Under ‘Powerful Labor Union’ Protected “TERMINATION-FOR-JUST-CAUSE-ONLY” COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT Terms.


In the paragraph below, there are 9 stories of people who were Targeted by Federal Agents and/or State Law Enforcement Officers and/or County Law Enforcement Officers and/or City Law Enforcement Officers, OR who were involved in unjustly surveilling Civilians.

; by Lisa Rose, on CNN, on January 24, 2018.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/24/politics/harlem-suarez-isis/index.html

Note: Obviously, according to the above CNN article regarding Mr. Suarez, he’s clearly a bad person and a dangerous criminal who needed to be caught and punished. I only reference the story regarding Mr. Suarez in order to show the level of surveillance that was placed on him. According to paragraph 9 of the above CNN article, “the FBI had a surveillance team following Suarez around the clock. At least 20 agents surveilled Suarez each day and sometimes 10 to 20 extra FBI employees were brought in to help keep tabs on him.”

OPERATION FLEX.
THE EX-FBI INFORMANT WITH A CHANGE OF HEART: ‘THERE IS NO REAL HUNT. IT’S FIXED’; by Paul Harris, in The Guardian; on March 20, 2012.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/mar/20/fbi-informant

Yassir Fazaga v. Federal Bureau of Investigation, 12-56867, 965 F.3d 1015 (9th Cir. July 20, 2020), The U.S. Court of Appeals for The 9th Circuit Ruled That:
On appeal regarding defendants’ motion to dismiss Muslim plaintiffs’ claims regarding illegal electronic surveillance by an FBI managed informant, court rules: plaintiffs had no reasonable expectation of privacy in conversations with government agent that were recorded; plaintiffs had reasonable expectation of privacy in conversations in mosque prayer hall when informant was not present, but defendants were entitled to qualified immunity for taping conversations because as of 2006 and 2007 no federal or state court had held that individuals generally have a reasonable expectation of privacy from surveillance in a house of worship; plaintiffs had reasonable expectation of privacy from covert recordings of conversations in their homes, cars, offices, and on their phones and properly pleaded a claim under FISA for recording such conversations; with respect to plaintiffs’ claims under First Amendment Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Equal Protection Clause of the Fifth Amendment, the Privacy Act, and the Tort Claims Act, the Appeals Court held that the District Court erred in dismissing the claims based on the state secrets privilege, but should have relied on FISA’s alternative procedures for handling sensitive national security information; plaintiffs were entitled to seek expungement of records to remedy constitutional violations; the Privacy Act and RFRA function as an alternative remedial scheme for some, but not all, of the interests plaintiffs sought to vindicate via First and Fifth Amendment Bivens claims; on remand district court must decide under Abbasi whether a Bivens remedy is available for claims not reached by the Privacy Act and RFRA; agent defendants were entitled to qualified immunity on conspiracy claims because intracorporate liability was not clearly established at the time of events in this case; it was not clearly established in 2006 or 2007 that covert surveillance conducted on the basis of religion would meet RFRA standards for constituting a substantial religious burden on individual congregants, therefore claims against individual agents must be dismissed, but claims against government defendants may go forward; plaintiffs request for injunctive relief ordering destruction or return of unlawfully obtained information is not a remedy permitted by the Privacy Act; Appeals Court is unable to determine whether discretionary function exemption precludes FTCA claims at this stage of the litigation; on remand, the District Court should use FISA’s § 1806(f) provisions to determine whether the electronic surveillance was lawfully authorized and conducted and to resolve state secrets issues and if that does not resolve all issues, the government may interpose a specifically tailored, properly raised state secrets privilege defense.
