Obtained Records Show ICE Is Using ALPR Databases To Reconstruct Targets’ Lives

ICE has full-blown access to license plate databases around the nation, as well as its own direct hookup to the largest ALPR database itself — the one compiled by ALPR manufacturer Vigilant. It places almost no restrictions on searches of these databases. Anything that somehow isn’t compliant can be farmed out to state and local agencies to perform searches by proxy.
The ACLU has obtained records showing just how much access ICE has, and how often it performs searches. The numbers are staggering, considering ICE is an immigration and customs enforcement agency with a more limited scope than the FBI and other investigative agencies.

Armando Ruiz came from covert war ravaged Guatemala, to America wrapped in garbage bags, in the tank of a petroleum truck, choking on fumes the whole way.
Or, at least thats the story I got out of him through my choppy Spanish and his halting English, both of which improved dramatically over the years we knew each other.
And, the last time,I saw Armando, he had appeared at my doorway, with a message: that Jesus loves me.
Of course, I looked to the right, and the left, expecting the usual white van or pickup truck with tinted wibdows to be hovering within two blocks, and out into the shadowy, snowy street, and then back at Armando, and told him I was glad he was still in the USA, having been deported numerous times, always finding the $3-6000 that it takes to hire a coyote to bring him across the border.
Bur really, I looked out there in the street because the Jesus people and their Pharisees who run fake churches from within the Panoptical Fusion Center fueled local law enfarcement schemes had an ICE informant on my doorstep, with my door tentatively opened.
And, in the due process free, gray area “high policing” schemes that are the modern Alphabet agency mission creep, an open door creates legal gray are that agencies like ICE exploit, preferring to insert unconstitutional means and methods into the lives of their targets as frequently as possible, knowing that-in the words of the FBIs J. Edgar Whosequeer, “the individual is handicapped…” by an actual, monstrous conspiracy.
And that conspiracy, the total corruption of law enforcement, as America has now fully blossomed into a bankster funded police and total surveillance state.
For that one (or two, or three) journalists following along, trying to understand the bi-polar narrative of organized gang stalking, with OGS denialists from the DHS/FBI/ICE/ et alphabet spewing psychobabble like this about electronic beams and face orbs on one side, and targeted individuals on the other side, an FOIA for the name Armando Ruiz, Minneapolis would be a Panoptical eye opener.
But I thanked Armando for his naive good will, and slowly closed the door.
And then, through the screen, I asked him in broken Spanish if the policia de los Estados Unitos were taking good care of him.
He broke out in a laugh, and looked sideways from under his Israeli styled Kepi hat, as we shared the relief of an unspoken secret, and said, “Me, no complain. Mi vida es good righ now.”

Gang Stalking databases, Tim Cushing, Techdirt.com covers community policing, aka organized gang stalking

Tim Cushing at Mike Masnicks Techdirt.com is consistently doing excellent reporting about organized gang stalking, aka FBI Infragard facilitated,Israelified/militarized, DHS “high policinghigh policing,” aka community policing, like this example here.
Here is a sample below of excellent reportage from Tim Cushing, about how bizarre, and dysfunctional policing is,for any journalist who wants a shot at my Gary Webb Award for Excellence in Gang Stalking reportage (military disinformation from private contractors in Kuwait, FBI DITU and DHS shills that includes DEWs, and other typical police /military /ADL /Masonic psychobabble like this here ,or pure babbling garbage Dr. Tomo Shibata, or Karen Stewart and “Targeted Justices” disinformation campaigns will be rejected):

Related Story: Wired online has since published an excellent piece about gang stalking, that acknowledges in part, the era of the CIAs drug running programs, and the subsequent blur between domestic law and CIA Chaos, that includes actual psychological operations that are encourageed by the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP) and carried out by DHS contractors, like PsOps, and other weaponized investigative cockroaches who feed at the trough of the terror -creation CVE money piles.

Chicago PD’s Gang Database Is A Horrific Mess Compiled By Horrific Public Servants

The City of Chicago’s Inspector General has released a hefty, disturbing report [PDF] on the Chicago PD’s gang database. This collection of people — all lumped together as gang members or associates — is shared with over 500 government agencies. Given this alarming fact, you’d think the CPD would be a bit more professional when compiling it. But you’d be wrong. The thing that leaps out immediately is how demeaning the database is, thanks to officers’ input.
[S]ome entries raise serious concerns about how CPD officers perceive and treat the people with whom they interact. OIG found that CPD officers entered occupations for individuals on gang arrest cards that included “SCUM BAG,” “BUM,” “CRIMINAL,” “BLACK,” “DORK,” “LOOSER [sic],” and “TURD.”
This epitome of community policing is being turned out on every governmental street corner. 500 agencies have made nearly one million inquiries of this finely-sourced database over the past decade. Whatever they were looking for was most likely black, male, and residing in certain Chicago neighborhoods. Not because that’s what these other agencies were actually searching for, but because that’s all the Chicago PD had entered into the database.

Tim Cushing pushing for ROGS' Gary Webb award for excellence in gang stalking journalism?

Of all the ways that ROGS blog-the blog you are reading right now-has changed the discussion about organized gang stalking, I think that my Gary Webb Award for Excellence in journalism is probably my best contribution.
That award carries a one thousand dollar stipend, and the winner also gets a golden trophy of a pigs trough with the bottom chewed out, with two golden .22 caliber bullets dangling above it. I will let the awardee contemplate the design of the award for themselves, but note that Gary Webb reported one of the best series in the history of journalism, won a Pullitzer Prize, and then, got gang stalked to death.

That award is offered for any journalist who can use the term “organized gang stalking” appropriately when discussing this issue.
And, Tim Cushing, of the worlds premiere technology blog, Techdirt.com comes awfully close in this article below, but-not close enough to be a contender YET.
And, lesser journalists are starting to step up to the plate to take a swing at that award, as we see with the reportage in another MSM piece that reported on the organized gang stalking of tech guru John McAffee, the worlds first inventor of anti-virus software.
Well, heres another excellent puece by Cushing, covering due process free and BIZARRE police activity, as they stalk, harass, and spy on people in Boston, MA, which has some of the most deeply entrenched Catholic and neocon racism and hidden theocracy in America:
Lawsuit: Boston PD’s ‘Gang Database’ Says People Who Wear Nikes And Have Been Beat Up By Gang Members Are ‘Gang Associates’
from the guilty-until-negatives-proven dept
The Chinese government uses a number of measures to keep tabs on citizens. One is what’s known as a “citizen score” — a compilation of all the good/bad habits the government can track that determines whether a person should be viewed as a contributor to society or someone the government should take out of circulation.
We do the same thing here in the US. Credit scores determine who gets to live where and what vehicle they can own. It also can affect employment opportunities. This version of a “citizen score” is compiled by private parties who have access to information Americans are given no choice in relinquishing.
But the government also uses point-based systems to determine what kind of citizen you are: one of the good OK guys or possible a menace II to society. The ACLU is currently suing the Boston Police Department over its ad hoc “citizen score.” The BPD adds and subtracts points to add and (possibly?) subtract people from its “gang database.” Things citizens actively do — and even things they passively don’t — can put them on this watchlist.
From the ACLU’s public records lawsuit [PDF]:
Under the point system, a person is designated as a “Gang Associate” if he is assessed six or more points, and a “Gang Member” if he is assessed ten or more points. See Exhibit A, Boston Police Department Rules and Procedures Rule 335.
The point system makes it possible to designate someone a Gang Associate or Gang Member without any allegation that he engaged in violence or criminal activity.
An individual may be assessed eight points for being the victim of gang-related violence.
Yes, you read that right: Boston residents magically become “Gang Associates” if they’re shot at by gang members. Or carjacked. Or mugged. If this happens twice, it appears they’ll be upgraded to “Gang Member” thanks to their inability to avoid being victimized by gang members.
