Welcome to The Police State of Racine WI

In Racine WI you are being watched..

From Channel 6

RACINE (WITI) — Should police be able to monitor what you post on your social media accounts? The Racine Police Department is looking to get a new tool — and it has at least one organization concerned.

Racine’s police chief has asked that the Common Council waive bidding requirements and use federal funds to purchase a service called “SnapTrends.”

The “SnapTrends” website describes the service as real-time location-based social listening. Social media activity is analyzed — to include Tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram photos and YouTube videos.

The Racine Police Department is looking to add this service to its arsenal — in an effort to hone in on crime in the city.

“Really the only crooks they`re going to catch with this are going to be the ones that are so stupid that they`re bragging about, you know, what they`re doing on Facebook,” Chris Ahmuty, the executive director of ACLU Wisconsin.

Ahmuty says a social listening tool raises several issues. He says the Racine Police Department’s use of such a tool can invade privacy.

“To see what people are posting on Facebook, what they`re posting on Twitter — it turns everybody into a suspect whether they`re up to no good or perfectly harmless,” Ahmuty said.

Alderman Henry Perez says he supports SnapTrends as a policing tool — saying it could be a good tool to provide intelligence while using open source information.

Ahmuty says he wishes city leaders would be more open about how they plan to use the technology, and where.

“They say that they`ll be able to zero in on areas where there is crime. If they`re zeroing in on areas of Racine, the ACLU would be very troubled if that means that they`re going to concentrate this police tool in poor neighborhoods — in neighborhoods that are mostly people of color,” Ahmuty said.

Alderman Perez says it’s important police don’t share too much information on how they might use this tool — saying getting too descriptive might help some people catch on, making the tool less effective.

A spokeswoman with the Racine Police Department says they don’t provide specifics regarding investigative tools, tactics and strategies — including SnapTrends, because they don’t want to compromise future investigations

————————————————————————————–

This program been going on for about 0ne year in this time at least one person has been arrested from a post that person made on Facebook.

I know that a search on You Tube “Racine” will bring up a lot of videos of what to be looks like crimes but to my understanding no one was been arrested for this.

From the above we know the RPD will not say if/when they have use SnapTrends to solve a crime.

One would think the RPD would so we know with more and more in Racine is saying crime is going up (why is the JT not talking about what my neighbors are?) but it is what it is.

Could SnapTrends be used to find folks in Racine who might be working on efforts to find candidates to run for Mayor, Alderman, County Board, who might not pro John Dickert plans for Racine?

To find the Blogs who like this one asks questions bringing out facts that Mayor Dickert NOT want the public to know?

Do we need out Tweets our Facebook postings to be observed to insure public safety?

Or might it be to ID who @Reporterwayne is on Twitter find who all the readers of Racine Exposed might be?

Now with the NSA reading our Emails hearing our Phone Calls using Big Data to watch and perhaps control us, why not the City of Racine, after all its for the kids

Life in a Police State

11112a

So there I was checking the social media sites and Boom, parts of a puzzle started to come together.

More checking from Web Sites and more came together.

Early this morning and more checking reading and well folks please be careful you are over 18 do what you will I do not care.

I do care that under Mayor John Dickert’s Police State he has the power not only to get the same information as I do but faster and in far more detail. With the RICO going on and his reelection coming up my guess is he has P.I.’s at his beck and call.

With I think an enemies list far greater then Nixon had and a unforgiving nature everything you do or say will be gathered and used to hurt you or others if he can do so .

We should recall what has been done in the City before bringing us to My Talk with  Ms Chainsaw

talked for sometime with a Racine activist that I call Chainsaw we spoke of Gary Becker and thought crimes how Computers can be hacked in so many ways what might someone who hated Gary (and many did.)  could do if this person was somehow able to gain access to a computer via a hacked password what fun they would have how much of a living Hell they could put him in

Even as I type this what say our Vindictive Mayor could do with a bit of cash + pals with advance knowledge of Computers could do to someone he hated.

As for me, being old fat poor no young hot babe is going to come on to me without being drunk or high if any do like was done before I will RUN not walk away. Your wife may not mind but I be well sad to say Dog Food.  I know better.

Be careful out there change your passwords use PGP in your emails If I have an idea of your Kink IMHO the Mayor sure knows and will act on it if he can

Mayor John Dicker’s Police State part II

 

But first this

 

 

Read in the Journal Times the Balloon floated about ending our CATV station?

http://journaltimes.com/news/opinion/editorial/journal-times-editorial-belletv-must-be-sacrificed-for-the-good/article_16577f5e-618d-59ec-bc4d-a888704d9aa3.html

The headline is rather interesting

Journal Times editorial: BelleTV must be sacrificed for the good of the budget

 

Good of the budget or the Good of the Police State ran by Mayor John Dickert also known as the City of Racine?

After all if the Station was still ran as it was under Mr. Nelson (and I do hope he joins the RICO case) I would have and perhaps others such as Mr. Meyers would have ran CATV shows on The Rico civil case the games under the “Rootworks” banner, I and others would have had guests on telling viewers information that our fearless leader would you rather not hear for only with a dumbed down public not asking questions not contacting  say the IRS , can he be free to enrich his pals I mean help the City of Racine  and after all we blogers just do not understand.

So after a long fight (but very embarrassing to the City) The Mayor was able to gain control give a pal money (far more then the operating costs  under Mr. Nelson) to effectively end the Racine in Ruins TV show on CAR 25 (but they can still be seen on You tube) in about one year the new operators would find be unable to get public backing unable to find $$ in sponsorships  (Chase Henrix still like to know what happened to his $$ he gave the City and other issues)  would find the first ever Ethics Hearing over Mary Osterman and advertising and then the City ending the Contract with the new operator but not a range of questions on many topics But I think the RICO will be addressing them.

IMHO Our Mayor does not want ANYONE he can not control having access to the Media so only the News he wishes you to know can get out to the public, so we can know how great he is.

One commenter said it best:

“Now the Journal Times is advocating and influencing city council to break laws and contracts to eliminate one of the only other local media outlets in Racine?

This is completely corrupt and full of lies. This is breaking the agreements that provide for public access and resources. This is stealing from the community.

The public access channel has no virtually no impact on the budget, and this is a corrupt ploy to pit public services and the community against each other.

Look at how this all happened:
– Dickert did not want black people or any naysayers on the channel, and also wanted to reward his friends for supporting his campaign.
– Dickert created an illegal no bid contract for his friend to take over the channel.
– Dickert lost that argument because it was completely illegal and pushed through without any input from city council or committees, and then city council created new laws for bids.
– Dickert removed people from the cable commission and stacked it with friends and cronies.
– Dickert and his cronies tried ousting the staff and took away all support.
– Dickert and his cronies lied to create a new vision to get rid of the staff and take over the channel.
– Dickert and his cronies wrote the RFP for themselves and their friends to get the rigged contract to take over the channel.
– Dickert and his cronies messed up the first RFP and secretly negotiated with certain people and companies to properly rig it a second time.
– Dickert and his cronies gave inside information and held secret meetings to select friends to ensure they would go along with the revised bid rigging process.
– The purchasing manager retired in the middle of the process and the new person claimed she didn’t know the process or anything about it.
– Dickert and his cronies held illlegal meetings and broke open meeting laws and created crony subcommittees to get rigged recommendations to help justify the bid rigging process.
– Dickert and his cronies lied to city council and the public about everything from the budget to advertising to sustainability to employee performance and more.
– Dickert himself conducted interviews during the bidding process and made false accusations throughout the process.
– City attorneys, staff and Aldermen were coerced, bribed or bullied into lying about the process and reasoning for the rigged contract.
– Dickert and his cronies pushed theough the corrupt rigged contract, and gave even more equipment, resources, projects, support and money including an illegal extension and change orders for the contract adding at least another $30,000 or more.
– Dickert and his cronies provided direct kickbacks to commission members in thousands of dollars in advertising and use of equipment for their own profit.
– Dickert and his cronies continue to lie about staffing, costs, equipment, savings, and public access to resources and services while they use the channel to promote other corrupt agendas.

This should be for the community, not for Dickert and his cronies. Everyone involved in this should be questioned in the RICO case. The Journal Times is just printing more lies for them. It’s great to know that our newspaper hates our community.”

As you may know our Racine Police Force now has I understand a program to track what folks are saying on Social Media as I said before we have all read stories on fools who post on say Facebook crimes they did.

Sadly, I am thinking this program is being used to see what I and others are saying on Social Media to see what “The Enemies of the State” are saying and perhaps doing in the Police State of the City of Racine, after all as we have been told its the fault of the Blogers that so much is wrong in this fair City.

Not the fault of say poor planing by Team Porters or Banks having questions and pulling $$ from Machinery Row development, as I keep hearing is the case. No its blogs like mine I must STFU so Mayor John Dickert can bless the City of Racine with his Godhood.

mdw  Has she been blessed?

 

tumblr_n2l3tzYzb61spj0ojo1_1280 Or has she been blessed?

After you get your Tax Bill and have to pay A wheel Tax will you feel blessed?

 

Are you not happy to live in a City who has effectively laid off police but can find money to create a Police State to protect the rein of Mayor John Dickert?

Thank God the RICO case will blow the lid off the City and our petty secrets

Duty to resist Editoral

Note I am fully aware of the Racine’s Police Department ability and desire to spy on members of the public on the orders and I feel strongly for the benefit of the Mayor of Racine John Dickert.

When I was in the Army we had each year classes on War Crimes and over and over we were told that if  followed an Illegal order to say kill someone loot pillage or allow others to do so without telling someone you could and would be held to be just as guilty as the person (s) giving or carrying out the order

This not only from events of WW II but Vietnam you may recall

Mayor John Dickert.

 

and as we know from this story http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/racine-considers-plan-to-allow-police-to-monitor-social-media-b99343504z1-273671521.html

that the RPD will be watching us… Why Who? We do know that from time to time dumb thugs will post insane things on say Facebook that at times dumb thugs will post BS on Twitter but to the point where the RPD must keep tabs on everyone?  Or might it be nothing more then a way to Mayor John Dicket monitor those on his list of political foes?  Perhaps a  way to monitor my actions in investigating this as I say Corrupt Mayor of a sad sad town?

I am shocked and disappointed that our Police Chief has not come out in Public on the planned use of this program, I am told that the Chief has talked to members of the Faith Community on issues he sees in Racine, I do hope on of them is issues of corruption and what his thoughts are on the Police and Fire Commission and they way he was treated by them.

Be so sad to see Our Chef just be

 

 

Real leadership means standing up to power.

 

See if The Civil RICO turns into say an FBI investigation no one in any office  will be safe from an investigation

 

We all must stand up to the actions of our Mayor John Dickert and his pals

 

Van Wangard & Mayor Dickert

A vote for them is a vote to reward pals to insure Racine stays #1 in Unemployment spend Millions on the Downtown as we see Racine Police effectively laid off, See Bus service cut for the poor who need it most and Gentrification take place in the Uptown

Haul-Bloggers-the-anti-social-mediaThere are things we can and should that in an upcoming post

Paul Ryan think we need to be spyed on?

My thanks to the Wisconsin Reporter

From The Hill 6/11/13

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) dubbed a secret National Security intelligence program as “creepy.”

Ryan’s comments come less than a week after two secret data collection programs were revealed to the public. One of the programs, run by the NSA, involves collecting data on calls of millions of telephone users.

“It comes across as creepy,” Paul said according to Wisconsin Radio Network. “I understand FISA court orders to go after some known person, and their phone records and whoever they’re communicating with. But to do a blanket dragnet nationwide, that seems to go way beyond the scope of the law that I’m familiar with called the Patriot Act.”

I thought this met that given a chance that Ryan would stop this shit after all The Public are NOT terrorists.  IMHO this is nothing more then more Obama turning the USA into a Police State  and a huge attack on the Constitution.
Of course Rep. Ryan who I thought was for Freedom etc would stop the NSA from doing this shit.
Case in point
“…America is not just a nationality; it’s not just a mass of land from Hawaii to Maine, from Wisconsin to Florida. America is an idea. It’s the most pro-human idea ever designed by mankind. Our founders got it right, when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence that our rights come from nature and nature’s God — not from government. Should we now subscribe to an ideology where government creates rights, is solely responsible for delivering these artificial rights and then systematically rations these rights?”
So imange  my surprise to read that Ryan voted to to allow the NSA to keep spying on us!
Just like Obama wanted him too!
Do we need to be policed? Our Emails read? Phones taped?  If so why so?
Mind you many like me now NO LONGER TRUST PAUL RYAN.  IMHO anyone who thinks the NSA should be doing wiretapping on the public should not hold public office!
Now say that on Facebook and see Americans for Prosperity  come at you to protect there guy.
 If the AFP want a civil war in the GOP I am happy to give them one.  They are NOT now or ever been The Tea Party nor do they tell me how/who to vote for.
Until I get an answer that makes sense I will not be voting for Paul Ryan again.  IMHO you should not  vote for him either.  Hell let Mayor Dickert get the office after all they both love Obama and his Police state indexPR
Has Mr. Ryan switched to the main stream GOP?
