Imagine speaking out against the government and being labeled a terrorist. Imagine speaking out against police abuse and being labeled a terrorist. Imagine speaking out against corporate monopolies and being labeled a terrorist.
You can stop imagining, it’s already happening.
According to a recent article in the VV Daily Press, law enforcement, first responders, banks and schools are labeling people terrorists.
“San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Detective Heather Forsythe, with the department’s Criminal Intelligence Division, said Tuesday that public safety agencies and private sector personnel, such as in education and banking, meet monthly to network, “compare notes” and essentially engage in ever-important information sharing.”
The Banking Secrecy Act otherwise known as ‘Suspicious Activity Reporting‘ allows law enforcement and banks to secretly spy on customers. (To learn how banks are spying on our everyday transactions click here.)
The Terrorism Early Warning Group, (TEWG) is made up of 19,000 sheriffs and law enforcement agencies and thousands of private sector personnel, like those in education and banking.
TEWG’s are really Fusion Centers, which have sprung up all across the country.
“The St. Louis Fusion Center: Terrorism Early Warning Group (formerly the St. Louis Terrorism Early Warning Group) is a public safety partnership consisting of law enforcement, fire/emergency medical, public health, and emergency management agencies, and private sector areas that could be a target of terrorism.” (To learn more about TEWG’s click here & here .)
How can we allow doctors, schools, banks, private corporations, firefighters, government agencies and law enforcement to decide who should be labeled an American terrorist?
How long before they label blogs and independent news sources as American terrorists?
But things are about to get a lot worse…
Law enforcement is encouraging private citizens to call them about “petty” things their neighbors are doing!
Allowing corporations, bankers, schools etc., to decide who’s a terrorist is fraught with many dangers.
The ‘War on Terror’ has truly become an American Horror Story.
