Justice for Michael Brown. Accountability for his killer & the organizations that harbor him

How do you know what organization(s) harbor or otherwise support the killer of Michael Brown? That's an easy one. It's the organization(s) that refuse to identify the killer until public outcry becomes too much to ignore. It's the organizations that refuse to interview eye witnesses to the killing. It's the organization(s) that turn its resources against people speaking out & protesting against the killing of Michael Brown instead of turning its resources against the killer of Michael Brown.

Serving and protecting or dominating and controlling?

My thanks to Simple Justice for bringing attention back to where it should be regarding this case.

More On Checkpoint USA's Recent Court Appearance

As previously indicated, the state charge against me for honking my horn at a federal Border Patrol checkpoint setup along a state highway inside the country while being illegally detained in the lane of traffic by federal agents has been dismissed in Pima County Justice Court after an hour-long hearing on July 11, 2014.

As part of my testimony during the hearing, I read from a fourteen page written statement along with ten supporting exhibits. That statement and the exhibits have been re-created below. Additionally, I've requested a copy of the audio record of the hearing from the court and will post it once it becomes available. I'm also planning on uploading video footage of the encounter in the near future.

Below appears the text of the written statement I read in court along with applicable links. For those who follow the checkpoint issue closely, you'll probably find several of the exhibits I presented in court interesting. These would include recent ACLU complaints and a FOIA lawsuit regarding internal Border Patrol checkpoints, information regarding Operation Stonegarden where local cops collect overtime pay for assisting Border Patrol agents in the field and a recent Border Patrol law bulletin informing agents they can't legally detain people for not answering questions or because they don't like their attitude.

Roadblock Revelations

Welcome to Checkpoint USA's blog. Here you'll find general information and discussions regarding growing threats to our right to privacy & travel.

While I refer to court cases along with state and federal law frequently in this blog, nothing written here should be construed as legal advice. I am not an attorney. Rather, I'm someone concerned about the growing disregard for individual rights present at all levels of government.

My conclusions are my own based upon personal experience and research. The law is made purposely complex however and varies significantly from place to place and circumstance to circumstance.
