FBI Letter to Randy Stroud Mentions Facebook Posts

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The content below was authored by Randy Stroud, a principled gent from Tennessee who has long spoken out for truth and self-ownership. In his own words:

“My only goal has been explicit………I simply want to live in a world that is operated under self-governance. I do not want to be mugged under the guise of ‘taxation’ in order to pay for the government’s wars, monopolized services and their targeted killings.”

Recently, Stroud found that his advocacy of truth had attracted the attention of Joe Craig and some of his accomplices, all of who subsists off stolen money.

If you are a frequent reader of CopBlock.org his name may be familiar with you per the content:

Snowden was Right!: Facebook & Youtube are Spy Programs

(I am writing this article in one setting with little to no editing, so I apologize in advance. A FOIA request shows that a Facebook post from 2012 that I made in an online debate angered the welfare whores who live off taxation, at the FBI. I consider it a badge of honor. The elite and their imperialism make my skin crawl, and it gives me great pleasure to know that they are reading, and hopefully learning….perhaps my words will reverse their wicked tendencies. )

Yesterday, I received a package from the FBI. A little over a year ago, I sent in a FOIA request to the FBI and CIA. The CIA quickly sent me a rejection letter stating that they could not “confirm or deny” that they had any records to show me under the FOIA act requirements, I never did hear back from the FBI, until now….

Why would I ask for such a request? Let me get you up to speed if you aren’t familiar with my work.

For the last three years I have been very politically active. I joined the right to travel movement, campaigned for Ron Paul, transitioned into the voluntaryism school of thought, and even attempted to prosecute Ben Bernanke, both Bushes, Obama, Clinton, and Eric Holder for racketeering and other crimes against humanity. I also sent a letter to “John Walker Lindh”, (an American who was accused of treason and was held at gitmo). In this letter, I simply stated that I did not think he was a terrorist and I thought it was ironic that he was being tortured and held for supporting the Taliban when the United States government has frequently armed militants, drug cartels, and other forms of terrorism themselves.  I do not necessarily support Lindh’s plight, but considering that he never fired a bullet, and never harmed anyone, he was simply cooking meals for the Taliban and offering support did not justify his torture and indefinite detainment, especially when you consider the hypocritical support of terrorism by way of the US government.

Nothing controversial. Nothing violent. I never called for the assassination of any person or persons.

On top of all of this, I have started this website [SovereignTactics.org], which promotes educational tools which allow the layman to stand a fighting chance against the conflicting interests of the court system.

Amongst all of this chaos, I was also involved in an armed march on the Tennessee State Capitol where me and a ragtag group of activist called for the disassemble of the federal government and for the repealment of the PATRIOT Act, NDAA, and for all Tennessee based military personnel to be returned home.

(That protest on the capital can be seen here)

Sometime after, I landed a job at an airplane repair/maintenance corporation. During my tenor working at Embraer, I was constantly ridiculed.

Since most of the employees there were former military personal, they labeled me as a “Muslim lover”, a “tax cheat”, and would say things like, “If you don’t like our country then leave!”  Even though I never discussed politics at work, some nosy co-worker found me on the internet and began to spread the word that I was, “Not a real American.”  I was eventually unlawfully fired and let go under false pretenses due to my political activities.

(They lied and said I was being laid off due to lack of work, even though my performance records showed that I was a great employee and whereas after my departure from the company, overtime was frequently given out. It was a conspiracy). You can read more about that incident here http://sovereigntactics.org/?p=437

For two years, harassment from local law enforcement and FBI agents were frequent – visits to my home and places of employment, followed on the streets, and surrounded by a group of officers for simple traffic stops. It was becoming too much. That’s when Nick Beres from News Channel 5 came to my home and showed me the documents, which stated that I was on a terror watch list! That’s the real reason why I lost my job! No trial. No explanations. Nothing! I was a marked man! Anytime I tried to apply for a new job, my background failed. I couldn’t understand it. I had no warrants, no arrests, nothing. Now it was all making sense.

Unfortunately, the interview with Nick Beres, although filmed, was never broadcasted. Nick called me and told me that the network didn’t like the story. However, I secretly recorded our conversation and leaked the interview on Youtube.

(In the interview, Nick Beres kept trying to label a sovereign citizen. Which I resent. It’s an oxymoron statement, and I don’t associate with any organization. He also discussed the letter that I sent to Eric Holder in my attempt to criminally prosecute corrupt government officials. That letter can be found in my book, The Red Pill, the letter to Mr. Lindh can also be found there. I have nothing to hide.)

So I pursued a lawsuit against the TSA (whom worked in tandem with my former employer to have me fired) for slander and libel. Being put on such a list ruined my reputation and made life very difficult for my family, as they too were harassed by law enforcement. (Guilty by association right?)

During these lawsuit proceedings, I had a friend who worked in an HR department run a federal background check on me.  The background took a little longer than normal, but it came back clean! A few weeks I applied for a job as a pharmacy technician, and sure enough, I passed their background check too! The TSA had taken me off the Terror Watchlist in order to avoid my lawsuit, which contained some very hard hitting language, which would have blew things wide open in the media!

After discovering that my background was now clean, and after going through some personal struggles in my life, I decided to take a break from activism and focus on my family, friends, and spiritual endeavors.

But then I get this package from the FBI. The report makes reference to my Youtube videos where I ask the FBI to apologize to me and they even directly quote one of my Facebook posts. The report was based around a comment I made two years ago on Facebook.

“I am an american. But, I hate imperialism. I want all imperialists to die. I just wish all nations would leave eachother alone in peace. I am ashamed of my country.”

Apparently this post pissed off the elite and they came after me hard. In the report, they made a reference to the letter I sent to John Walker Lindh, or maybe it was the letter I sent to Eric Holder, the Former US attorney general at the time. I was seeking his aide to prosecute Obama, Clinton, the Bush family, Ben Bernanke, and a few others.  I’m not sure because the documents “blank” the reference out.  The report states, “Stroud asked the FBI if the investigations where in reference to the letter he sent to————–”. Then it’s blank. Since my telephone conversation with the Memphis FBI took place over two years ago, I can’t quite recall the entire conversation.

I called them after agents showed up at my work. I NEVER asked them to come to my work as they claim in the report. That’s a complete lie. In the report, they claim that they never ID’s themselves, and I am here to tell you that that too is a lie! Specifically, Joe Craig, who is assumed to be in charge of my FBI, since during all of my altercations with the FBI, he was the only one who would ID himself, although the partners he brought with him never would. After his visit to my former job at Under-Armour, my other co-workers told me in confidence that the agents had a lot more to say than what is told in this report. They asked questions like, “Who does he associate with?”, “Has he ever made reference to bombs?”, “Does he do any charity work?” After that incident, my fellow co-workers became frightened of me and thought I was involved with Al-Qaeda or some other quasi-Muslim associated media propagated terror group.

(Which is interesting because I am a self-described agnostic Taoist and have no interest in Islam. I guess living in the south and having the word “sovereignty” written in Arabic as a tattoo, while being outspoken against the wars automatically makes you a fundamentalist Muslim sympathizer huh? lol….silly brainwashed tools!)

This report also claims that they only visited me once, and the investigation ended shortly after they came to my work for the first time. This was in 2012. However, the report stated, “Several blank pages are included in this package to signify entire pages of deleted classified information.”

Which sounds about right, because the abuse did not stop in 2012. In 2013 and in the early months of 2014, more harassment from the FBI and the local police continued.  It is only after I initiated a lawsuit that I have been left alone . (Pictures of the documents will be included at the end of this article. Some sections will be blanked out in blue to protect my address).

Sometimes I feel like becoming a recluse and calling it quits in regards to my activism. Just find myself a beautiful wife, get a regular job, and just live a private life. Anytime my name is “Googled” many people become afraid and misunderstand my plight. I should not be feared. My only goal has been explicit………I simply want to live in a world that is operated under self-governance. I do not want to be mugged under the guise of “taxation” in order to pay for the government’s wars, monopolized services and their targeted killings.

So remember kids, whatever you say or do on the internet………Big Brother is watching. But do not be afraid, at least we know that they are reading our statements. Perhaps they will be educated. I am delighted to know that some snot-nosed pimply faced FBI agent is being forced to read all of my posts about anarcho-capitalism, free-markets, voluntaryism, and self-ownership. Maybe he will wake up and quit his job and join the ranks of us fellow liberty lovers.

As for me……..I sure could a vacation from all of this. Anyone have a plane ticket to Bangkok or Bora Bora?

FBI letter to Randy Stroud

I proudly live life with my guard down. I’d gladly take a thousands arrows to the heart for just one honest moment of serenity. Sorrow signifies defeat. Defeat signifies effort. Effort pushes you towards a goal. Being afraid to lose means you’re not brave enough to win! So go ahead….Bring it on “life”. I’m giving myself a 900th chance. I’ll never give up in my struggle for personal liberty.

R. Stroud

Jacob Crawford Imparts Knowledge on CNN Audience About Need to Film the Police

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Founder of WeCopwatch and producer of the first know-your-rights video to use content entirely from the street, Jacob Crawford has long advocated that cameras be used during police interactions. But, unlike many who mindlessly clamor for more taxpayer money to be used to try to make the police less brutal by outfitting them with body cameras, Crawford recognizes the importance of you and me – as non-police employees – possessing the camera.

Crawford recently had the chance to share some of his insight with the audience of CNN:

After Mike Brown was killed in Ferguson, Crawford traveled there, connected with folks from the Canfield neighborhood, and helped get a police accountability group – The Canfield Watchmen – started. As he states in the video above, even more than cameras, knowledge is important.

 

 

Earlier this year Crawford co-authored a piece that discredited the statistic used by many advocates of police worn body cams.

RIALTO-1

Across the country, body cameras are being purchased by police departments in the name of transparency. According to a widely publicized study, Rialto, California, boasted an 88% drop in complaints in the first year after the cameras were introduced there, along with a 60% drop in police use of force. Rialto is a small city with only 66 cops, and its Police Chief, Tony Farrar, collaborated with Taser International, Inc., in the study. The Taser corporation has gained record profits by marketing body cameras to hundreds of cities, along with a cloud-based backup and search service called Evidence.com, which was used to collect the data for the Rialto study that led to many of these sales.

Clearly, it is important to not take everything at face value and to do your own research. Though of course, it is quite easy to know that police, no matter what technology or monitoring equipment they’re outfitted with, will always be rights-violating as their institution itself is based on coercion.

More recently, Crawford announced that in 2015 he and others will be offering Know Your Rights training online.

Keep up the great work Jacob Crawford!

Two Newport, Tennessee police employees indicted, one retires

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Tracy Campbell shared the content below about some four criminals involved with fencing stolen property, at least three of whom where also taking paychecks from people in their community.

Date of Incident: November 11, 2014
Individuals Involved: Detective Capt. Roger Lynn Shults
Outfit: Newport Police Department
Phone: (423) 623-6004

Roger Lynn Shults and James Holt, both employed at the Newport, Tennessee police outfit, were indicted by a grand jury for fencing stolen property and other actions the pair hoped to keep quiet. The pair was joined in their efforts by Holt’s wife, Kathy Holt, who happens to be an alderwoman for the town, and her son Kenneth Myers.

Roger Lynn Shults brother Murice, meanwhile, is the top-dog at the Newport cop shop – are we to believe he had no inkling what his brother was involved with? The criminal Shults (yes, both subsist on stolen money, but in this instance the one being referenced is the one indicted) has now retired. Does that mean he’ll receive a pension? Will area taxpayers be on the hook to fund this unsavory character in perpetuity?

Shults and his cronies had been investigated by those employed at the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, who were tipped off about the less-than-professional actions by a man named Jimmy Dunn. In addition to profiting by moving stolen property, Holt profited by selling prescription drugs in a school zone, while in his Newport police road pirate vehicle.If residents of Newport had the option, do you think they’d choose to continue hire for protection an outfit known to employ such crooks? Honestly it’s not surprising that these types of incidents occur – after all, Shults and Holt were operating in an environment that supposedly afforded them extra legal rights. They probably engaged in their illegal activity for years, believing themselves immune from repercussions.Known Police Accountability Groups in Tennessee

Virginia State trooper harassment

Friday, November 21st, 2014

This information was shared by Will D., who is seeking some accountability.

Date of Interaction: 22 Sept. 2014
Individual Responsible: Trooper J M Buzzard
Outfit: Virginia State Police
Phone: (804) 674-2000

My wife and I were driving on 460 near Appomattox at around 1330 heading home, when a trooper – J.M. Buzzard – came up to us and kept passing – looking over at me and staring. He slammed on his breaks pulled in behind us and pulled us over. He approached me and asked why I was being pulled over. I said I didn’t know. He said it was because I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. My wife told him “Sir, he had his seatbelt on the whole time since we left Lynchburg.” Buzzard cut her off, called her a liar and said “Well I will give you the benefit of the doubt” in sarcastic way.

Since Buzzard couldn’t give us a ticket he leaned over to look at the front windshield and said I’m pulling you over for expired inspection. I could not believe how he called my wife a liar then changed what he pulled us over for!?!?!

Can anybody help me and try to figure out this whole mess? I am tired of being harassed by the police. And if you call them out and show them they are wrong they get even more sarcastic with you! Who regulates them? Who watches them wen they do wrong? I am fed up and all respect I had for law enforcement has gone right out the window. This jerk needs to be spoken too and be held for his actions.

Albuquerque police shoot man multiple times who was holding brake pads.

Friday, November 21st, 2014

This content was shared by Elmo M. Martinez who’s seeking to get more transparency on yet another incident caused by a predators wearing Albuquerque police badges.

Date of Incident: November 18, 2014
Outfit: Albuquerque Police Department
Phone: (505) 242-2677

I don’t know too much about the video just that you can see Albuquerque police shoot another unarmed victim. As you can clearly see in the video the cop immediately jumps out of his vehicle with another cop to the right of him and without hesitation shower him with a hail of gunfire I counted over 20x but i might have miscalculated. However make sure you get this out to the public as to bring justice to these murderers.

Baby injured and STILL suffering after police raid gone wrong

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

The content below was shared by a woman who stated that “this is absolutely disgusting And completely unacceptable. They gave permanently disfigured this innocent baby. My heart breaks for this family, they deserve justice!”

Date of Incident: May 28, 2014
Individuals Responsible: Unnamed Habersham County SWAT members
Outfit: Habersham County Sheriff’s Office
Phone: (706) 839-0500

While sleeping, parents heard an explosion and a flash of light. They heard their baby crying too. Then a swat member pulled his fathers shoulder back so far, he caused two severe shoulder injuries as they pinned him down. The wife was asking for her son, when the cop told her to ‘shut up and sit down’. They heard him screaming, and the father saw blood on the floor. He demanded to know who’s blood it was, they were silent.

When they got yo the hospital after the officers put the baby in the ambulance without showing him to his parents, they saw his chest had a hole in it, AND his face was seriously disfigured.

My husband and I have a baby right now, we watched this episode of The Doctors and grew livid. They have over $1,000,000 in medical debt, and of course no charges have been filed.

The kicker? The person they were raiding the house for didn’t even live there. It was the father’s nephew they were looking for. The family doesn’t even live there, they had fallen on hard times after their home in Wisconsin caught on fire.

Puppycide: A Symptom of the Police State

Video Narration:

About half of households in the USSA have a dog. For many of us, our four-legged friends are part of the family. When they pass, it can be a tough adjustment. That is especially true when their lives are cut short through acts of violence.

The killing of other peoples’ dogs by police employees happens so regularly that a word – puppycide – has been coined to describe it.

Maps, databases, Facebook pages, and media content provide a voice for those wronged and give us some idea of the scale.

A duo of documentarians focusing on this issue has raised tens of thousands via their Kickstarter campaign. They state that every 98 minutes a dog is shot by a police employee, which equates to over 5,000 dogs annually.

Almost without exception, police employees who shoot unarmed people claim “I felt threatened” – that same mantra is put-forth by those who shoot dogs under dubious circumstances.

In the injustice system, the phrase “I felt threatened” acts as a get out of jail free card for police. They must get home safely, after all.

Yet if its believed that police take a paycheck to protect others, wouldn’t they put their own safety second to those they serve? And never shoot a person or a dog unless it was to protect someone else?

But that’s not how the injustice system is structured. It is set up not to foster justice or accountability, but to protect its own actors and its perceived legitimacy.

So what’s to be done?

Some suggest that more lawsuits are needed, as it would act as a deterrent. Yet how could that be if the individual responsible never personally faces any consequences? Even if someone “wins” in legaland, it’s not the offending police employee on the hook for the settlement, but hardworking people in the community. Remember—“settlements” are paid by tax money, not police employee salaries. If anything, this solidifies that police employee and their colleagues can shoot and kill with impunity.

Others recommend that new policies and training be implemented, to give police employees more options in their toolbox instead of their firearm, to go to during encounters with dogs.

Yet just like the lawsuit tactic, the training avenue neglects to start the conversation where it begins.

Puppycide is rampant because police lack the proper incentives.

Police departments, sheriff’s offices, and federal agencies are built on double standards. They claim “legal” rights to do things considered wrong for you or me.

If I went to your property, jumped your fence, broke into your house, put you and your family in handcuffs, shot your dog in front of you, then trashed your house, would my actions be justified if I claimed that I were looking for marijuana?

Of course not. Yet that same scenario is happening time and time again.

Consider the fact that while dogs owned by non police employees are killed without recourse, legalese exists that proscribes five-figure fines and years in a cage for anyone who even harms a dog owned by a police employee.

While it is impossible to be made whole when the loss of life happens, trying to remedy a coercive monopoly is fruitless and serves only to reinforce their claimed legitimacy.

If you really want to end puppycide, strike the root. If someone kills your dog, or the dog of another family in your community, treat the situation the same whether they wear a badge or not.

Make the incident known to others. Share a recount online in text or video form. Link to it from your area Craigslist, Topix or other online community board. Connect with your local police accountability groups and collaborate to focus attention on the aggressor. And, inform the neighbors of the shooter about the incident – after all, wouldn’t you want to know if you lived next to someone who engaged in such predatory actions? Ostracism is a powerful and peaceful tactic.

ISP Investigates Marion Officer Involved In Shooting

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Below is the write-up about an incident that transpired in Marion, Indiana on November 16th. The italic text is from a local media outlet, the bolded text was shared by the person who submitted this content, which are much more commonsensical and objective.

Date of Incident: November 16, 2014
Individual Responsible: Not disclosed
Outfit: Marion Police Department
Phone: (765) 662-9981

From WANE.com:

MARION, Ind. (WANE) – The condition of a man shot by a Marion Police officer has improved since the Sunday incident.

Police said Chris Cook was armed and running away from officers following a reported disturbance at 2805 South Boot Street in Marion. He was in critical condition on Sunday but had improved to serious condition by Tuesday.

According to police, 26-year-old Cook was seen walking near the street where the incident had occurred when police responded to the disturbance around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. As the officer exited his police car to speak with him, Cook ran away and the officer chased after him, according to the police report.

Mr Cook was stopped to question as merely stopped as a potential witness, prior to responding to an unknown disturbance call a couple blocks away. For all the officer knew, he had nothing to do with the disturbance.

Police said the officer asked Cook to stop multiple times while he ran for about two blocks. During the chase, the officer saw Cook holding what appeared to be a handgun. Cook was told to drop the gun and show his hands several times. Police believe he made a motion as if turning to the officer, and was shot one time in his rear right torso.

Sure, Cook should not have run…never run from police. But there are plenty of reasons why people run. They’re scared, or they have a warrant for something else, or whatever.

Okay…People are allowed to carry guns! Its unclear whether Cook even pointed the gun at the officer.

The officer says he “feared for his life” but hello… the man was *RUNNING AWAY FROM HIM* How about the other way around… Cook feared for HIS life and ran.

As is standard operating procedure, the Marion officer has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. The Indiana State Police, at the request of the Marion Police Department, is investigating the shooting. No one else was injured during the confrontation.

Oh and of course, the officer is put on paid vacation…I mean administrative leave.

Editors Note: It is telling just how much corporate media “journalists” just regurgitate whatever “facts” they are told by self-proclaimed “authorities.” When you read any such content you are encouraged to see through the one-sided narrative and question, what if the police employees actions had been done by a non-police employee – would the same tact be taken by the corporate media outlets? Would the “authorities” have remained moot on the name of the shooter? Also, just how impartial will an investigation of a police employee by another police employee be?

Rocky Ford, Colorado Cop Arrested for Murder, in Court Today

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Amanda, hoping to make more likely an outcome that involves responsibility for the killer who wears a badge, shared the information below.

Date of Incident: October 12, 2014
Individual Responsible: James Ashby
Outfit: Rocky Ford Police Department
Phone: (719) 254-3344

James Ashby, employed at Rocky Ford police outfit will be in Otero court today related to the second degree murder charges he faces for the killing of 27-year-old Jack Jacquez. If you’re in the area show up to make your support of justice known: November 19, 2014 at 1:30pm at the Otero County Court.

Though David Randall and Eric Ross at KOAA.com reported few details on the incident, save for the norm of a paid vacation for a shooter who wears a badge:

Ashby has been on administrative leave pending a CBI investigation since the shooting. The shooting sparked protests throughout the community.  The Rocky Ford Police Department has not released any additional information on the shooting.

our friends at PoliceStateDaily.com disclosed that:

Sara Lindenmuth said that a Rocky Ford police officer, now identified as James Ashby, forced his way into her brother-in-laws residence after he came home around 2:00 am Sunday morning.

Lindenmuth says her brother-in-law, 27-year-old Jack Jacquez, and the officer began yelling at each other.

“He was standing next to his mom, his back turned toward the officer and then [Ashby] shot him twice in the back and then pepper sprayed him,” Lindenmuth said. “Then they hand cuffed his fiancé, for reasons I don’t know why. And the mom went to call the cops and the cop took her phone and threw it against the wall.”
