In the UK, Michael Doherty, a former aircraft engineer, is suing the Metropolitan Police for breaking and entering, assault and battery, and kidnapping. Doherty was forcibly taken into police custody on suspicion of harassment without probable cause for the crime.
A district court judge agreed to allow Doherty to bring charges against the police in West London for their blatant disregard for the law. After a bogus internal investigation, Doherty filed charges against the officers in question.
Two men in plain clothes claiming to be police officers came to the victim’s door. Doherty refused to allow the police into his residence when they demanded he open the door. This prompted the use of violent force by the police and the reason for Doherty’s counter claim.
The officers who came to take Doherty asserted authority based on a trumped-up claim by a commander’s secretary that she was harassed by the victim. In a statement, she said that Doherty had called the station and became engaged, “abusive, rude and aggressive”. Answering to these inflated allegations, Doherty agreed to come to the station of his own volition; however the police officers responded by dragging him violently out of his home, handcuffing him and forcing him into their car.
Doherty, having recorded the calls made to the police, could prove that the commander’s secretary was lying. After this fact was produced, the secretary became unsure of her recollection of the conversations with Doherty, saying they were “hazy”. Doherty has decided to pursue private litigation against the police officers for perjury, making false statements concerning the phone calls, and demanding the officers be fired.
According to the summons served on the officers:
You were on the property as a trespasser and you threatened to smash down a glass-paneled door which the homeowner was holding closed. You threatened and used a battering ram to support your threat of violence. The occupants were caused fear for their personal safety. You willfully failed to perform your duty to such a degree that it amounted to an abuse of the public trust which had been placed in you.
Committing trespassing, and kidnapping, the officers took Doherty without permission and therefore without warrant for arrest broke the law. Entry into a private home is by court authority with a search warrant or permission of the resident in the UK just as it is in the US.
In May of this year, the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) requested from Congress through a new authorization act to allow US armed forces to be used against American citizens as a new response team for domestic disturbances.
The police state continues to march across the nation as local police departments are becoming para-militarized. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) were involved in private residential raids in July of this year to seize “anti-government or anarchist literature”. In Portland, Olympia and Seattle, the authorities claimed that anarchist literature, flags, flag-making materials, mobile phones, hard drives, address books and black clothing were taken from protesters.
The DHS and FBI are warning about a possible false flag attacks using improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and “anarchists”.
Active duty military and US veterans are also a target of the US government’s propaganda campaign against terrorism. The US Armed Forces now claim that white supremacists are joining the military to infiltrate and overthrow what is referred to as the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG). Academics have proposed that the infiltration scheme includes white supremacists hiding their ties to neo-Nazi groups is secret in order to get passed screeners when applying for the armed forces in recruitment offices.
Blaming the false flag “war on terror”, the US government has empowered, “police forces throughout the country [that] have purchased military equipment, adopted military training, and sought to inculcate a “soldier’s mentality” among their ranks.”
The Department of Homeland Security solicited for acquisition last month an estimated 2,500 heavily armored vehicles for the purpose of “police rescue”. Along with gathering 1.8 billion round of hollow point bullets for alleged target practice, along with 1,400 pounds of fertilizer bomb making materials, specialized riot gear, LRADs and other crowd control devices, bullet-proof checkpoint outposts – as well as human shaped paper targets.
As outlined in the Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield (IPB) processes are defined by operational environments in regard to battle space, effects, evaluation of threats and adversaries while determining the course of action. In regard to civil situations, and to maintain intelligence and operational purposes, preparations with regard to terrain are inconsequential.
According to the RAND Corporation document, “Street Smart: Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield for Urban Operations”, the use of IPB in urban areas will alleviate some of the anticipated “analytic difficulties posed by urbanized areas.”
By training in American cities, the armed forces can realize maneuvers and special considerations that are needed to control urban infrastructure in the case of civil disturbance and insurrection. Having foreknowledge of the people living in the specified cities that are marked for control assist in the “critical operational success” of not only “knowing the enemy” but also the ability to retain a level of concealment and surprise.
When the US Army is “called upon to operate in villages, towns, and cities their directive will be to “neutralize American citizens’ technological capabilities” using “sophisticated intelligence equipment” and advanced tactical training.
In Minneapolis, US Special Operations Command (USSOC) conducted urban warfare drills in August. The local police department and the Federal Aviation Administration collaborated with the military to choose training times and locations.
The Marine Corp has created a law-enforcement battalion (ELB) consisting of specialized military police officers (SMP) will take the role of current street cops while still remaining part of the Marine Corp. SMPs would be deployed to assist in any event of civil disturbance, handling of detainees, use biometrics to identify suspects and conduct forensic work. Their assistance is not limited to conducting DUIs and writing speeding tickets in an effort to re-brand the Marine Corps as being more involved with average work now allocated to local law enforcement.
Contained within the US Army Military Police training manual for Civil Disturbance Operations are outlines describing how the US military will use the arsenal at their disposal to quell domestic riots, confiscate firearms and kill Americans during times of mass civil unrest.
The explicit use of “deadly force” when confronting “dissidents” is clearly stated with the refusal of a “warning shot” and the directives toward weapons that rioters or demonstrators will experience in the name of continuity of government.
