365 Days and Holding….
It was a year ago today that I filed a request for precautionary measures with the Inter American Commission on Human Rights. The request asked for certain measures to be enacted for my safety and security—including that a guard be provided at my home for the periods of time I have to leave, in order to deter the repeated and illegal entries into my home.
Precautionary measures are considered to be emergency measures and the IACHR is mandated to deal with them as such. SEE THIS STORY

Homestead PD Still Doesn’t Know Photography Is Not A Crime

Thursday, June 15th, 2017
Homestead Police Department (HPD), in South Florida, has myriad problems respecting the First Amendment. I went to HPD this week to serve some officers in a civil rights suit, the story was covered earlier. While entering I discovered that HPD still has not learned that photography is not a crime.
I covered HPD officer John Frank, last year, him initially claiming that I could not take his picture. He quickly backed down once I started recording the video below. HPD adopting a policy such as shown in the sign above makes it understandable that some of their officers would fail to realize that photography is not a crime.

However, HPD officers such as Tony

Friday, May 26th, 2017

INTRODUCTION
 
The City of Homestead has a torrid reputation, and a pattern of willfully refusing to comply with the public records law. Homestead is a little town at the southern end of Miami-Dade County, rarely receiving the scrutiny it deserves as a cesspool of public corruption and maleficence.
 
I have used the records request process, as a pre-discovery method for investigating my civil rights claims. Homestead has failed to comply with the public records law on the majority of the nearly one hundred requests I have filed.
 
Homestead has a pattern and practice of unlawful noncompliance as it relates to the records law

BLM Ranger Kidnaps Family

Friday, October 9th, 2015
The only difference between an abduction case and a lawful arrest is that word, “lawful”.  On June 29th of 2015 a BLM Ranger working for The Dept. of Interior in Humboldt County, California stepped across the lines and abused his authority to retaliate against an activist family who was simply looking to enjoy a family camping trip after volunteering for a major local event.  This simple trip to BLM Land has manifested into a nightmare of abuse by both The Bureau of Land Management and the Humboldt County Law Enforcement Division, resulting in what most would construe as an
