I’ll start off with this,Chris Dorsey brought to my attention his video of the Secret Service “just there for a friendly chat” in their words. When does the Secret Service ever just want to have a friendly chat? So I put it up as a news story when it got taken off his Youtube channel illegally. And by illegally I mean against the law. Youtube has tried to put a copyright hold on some of my videos the one of my eviction that was evidence for court being one. Now how can this company Youtube hold a copyright to things I shoot myself and happen to know the copyright laws. And then there’s the idiots who decide to ridicule and harass Chris Dorsey constantly in person or on fedbook. I have seen numerous times and been involve in numerous conversations with some of the people who harass Chris. There have been several hit pieces done on him and I’m sure you can find them if you look him up.
Here is the video I posted a few days ago.
Chris Dorsey’s Secret Service Encounter
And this other one.
Electoral Board’s Dabney Goes Psycho When Shown Proof of Election Fraud
Okay in covering the election fraud Chris Dorsey was one of the first people I ran into. I am sort of known to City Hall and have a friend politician whom I support Reva Trammell. So I know the workings of City Hall or how it doesn’t work rather.
Okay now on to Chris Dorsey’s video let’s look at what happened.. I’m watching it again now as I type. They have a record of it. That looks like a camera in the brief case he’s holding. That button there is the eye. I would dare say and the way he’s trying to keep Chris in the view of that side of the briefcase or portfolio. And since they are out on the side walk there is no way they can claim it’s a privacy issue. They are just trying to harass Chris Dorsey.
Plus if the person is still on the other line during all this that use to be called news. But Youtube want to claim they own anything you put up.
Let’s look at what the law is for photographing and videotaping out in PUBLIC. I did two articles that everyone should go check out I’ll wait..
Citizen Journalists and Citizen Photojournalists, what are they?
ETHICS FOR THE PRESS PHOTOGRAPHER
Now here’s what the laws says can be done pay attention to § 18.2-386.1. Unlawful filming, videotaping or photographing of another; penalty. Part B.
“§ 18.2-386.1. Unlawful filming, videotaping or photographing of another; penalty.
A. It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly and intentionally videotape, photograph, or film any nonconsenting person or create any videographic or still image record by any means whatsoever of the nonconsenting person if (i) that person is totally nude, clad in undergarments, or in a state of undress so as to expose the genitals, pubic area, buttocks or female breast in a restroom, dressing room, locker room, hotel room, motel room, tanning bed, tanning booth, bedroom or other location; or (ii) the videotape, photograph, film or videographic or still image record is created by placing the lens or image-gathering component of the recording device in a position directly beneath or between a person’s legs for the purpose of capturing an image of the person’s intimate parts or undergarments covering those intimate parts when the intimate parts or undergarments would not otherwise be visible to the general public; and when the circumstances set forth in clause (i) or (ii) are otherwise such that the person being videotaped, photographed, filmed or otherwise recorded would have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
B. The provisions of this section shall not apply to filming, videotaping or photographing or other still image or videographic recording by (i) law-enforcement officers pursuant to a criminal investigation which is otherwise lawful or (ii) correctional officials and local or regional jail officials for security purposes or for investigations of alleged misconduct involving a person committed to the Department of Corrections or to a local or regional jail, or to any sound recording of an oral conversation made as a result of any videotaping or filming pursuant to Chapter 6 (§ 19.2-61 et seq.) of Title 19.2.
C. A violation of subsection A shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.
D. A violation of subsection A involving a nonconsenting person under the age of 18 shall be punishable as a Class 6 felony.
E. Where it is alleged in the warrant, information, or indictment on which the person is convicted and found by the court or jury trying the case that the person has previously been convicted within the 10-year period immediately preceding the offense charged of two or more of the offenses specified in this section, each such offense occurring on a different date, and when such offenses were not part of a common act, transaction, or scheme, and such person has been at liberty as defined in § 53.1-151 between each conviction, he shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony.
Since they identified themselves as Secret Service they fall in to Part B of that law and since it happened on public property were any neighbor can see it happening then where is their expectation of privacy? Yeah just there to talk. Then they get in your home where they can say they saw something then get the warrant. UM…
What constitutes PRIVATE and what is PUBLIC? Let’s again look at what the law says. “In terms of privacy, streets, parks, stores, and museums are public places. In contrast, residences are private places.” So the sidewalk is considered PUBLIC area as such no expectation of Privacy is to be expected there.
There’s also what is called Corpus delicti (plural: corpora delicti) (Latin: “body of crime”) is a term from Western jurisprudence referring to the principle that a crime must have been proven to have occurred before a person can be convicted of committing that crime. And having nothing but a someone said is getting old.
They also keep trying to lead Chris into saying something that may or may not be used against him. Notice AGENT: Buzz-cut change the subject with an out in left field question. Yeah try and make everything you say not what you said. Chris WILL be getting more visits. If all it takes is someones made up word against a mountain of evidence you can be assured that someone will make up more stuff or they’ll wait and come after Chris out in public. You speak out they make you a target and you remain number one for a long time.
And what was AGENT: Zippy doing. Yeah just there for a friendly chat about you but they did no looking into you to begin with? And then they say you made threats against the president, WHAT? Anything to justify their warrant-less intrusion on your privacy but notice they clam up and declare their privacy. It all about them being in charge. We will tell you what the law is and if we get it wrong we are still the LAW. Maybe I should call them AGENT: Andy and AGENT: Barney. Even thought I could go back and get their names I won’t they said them I won’t repeat them. I have an oath to uphold.
I mean why spend millions upon millions of tax payers slaves money on these Threat Fusion Centers and not utilize them when you need them. Like they don’t monitor fedbook.. Not knowing anything about Chris Dorsey to begin with. How do we know they were even feds? Trust me they were, just look at them only they pull that look off. And I know there will be those who say that the Secret Service AGENTS were doing nothing wrong. Yes they were they were doing a “knock and search”. They were there over false allegations but they don’t check out credible real threats.
I have been following this new trend where they are using BIOMETRICS and scanning your face and other stuff to a database and making a permanent file like they did in Afghanistan. http://thefreethoughtproject.com/police-issued-hand-held-facial-scanners-if-criminal-worry-about/
Police Issued Hand Held Facial Scanners, “If you are not a criminal you have nothing to worry about” Read more at
I’m expecting them to come out with a BIOMETRICS pen that they hand to you and it scans your pulse and other things like sample your DNA and fingerprint you. It’s coming I will bet you.
And this database is hooked into fedbook and the DMV and the threat fusion centers and god knows what else.. It’s coming. But what good is all of it if they don’t use it? Or they say they don’t know and as the conversation gets longer they bring out more and more of what they don’t know in the first place.
And when you are a candidate for Sheriff as Chris is, then it’s slander at best. Probably will go much deeper then that. So this is a newsworthy story that the presstitute media doesn’t want to be bothered with. And WHY did Youtube pull it down so no one can see them harassing Chris Dorsey? As said there was no expectation of privacy on anyones part. And since they were also videoing the situation it’s only okay for them to have a copy but not Chris. I’m going to get Chris’s take on all of this I want to do an interview and let Chris tell you in his own words.
They also don’t want the press to get a hold of it, the real press because then you will see what really goes on. So they threaten and coerces you into agreeing with them. IT”S PSYOPS 101. And most people will think it’s okay for them to do this ILLEGALLY.
Randal M. Bundy had this to say on his fedbook page when he ran it on the news.“Randal M. Bundy This matter is particular interest to me because (1) Chris Dorsey was a recent candidate for the office of Sheriff in Richmond Virginia – although I do not necessarily agree with him on each and every topic, I did support him for Sheriff and would support him again. The fact that the Secret Service would respond to any and every claim made someone who calls there office seem to me to be a complete waist of time and tax payers money, especially when the bogus claims are made about a political candidate. Obviously the entire matter was political revenge. And that on the video the Secret Service says they did not know any thing about Chris Dorsey or his running for office also is simply bullshit, because before any of these guys, rather FBI, CIA, Secret Service or NSA pay a visit to you at your door, they already know anything and everything about you. they probably even know what you had for breakfast and when you last used the bathroom. I enjoyed this video because it is a rare occasion that you actually get these guys on tape like this.”
I want to thank Randal for taking it and running with it. For it is news it needs to be seen. There was a time when this would be a big story and be on the evening news now it’s just a so what? Did Miley Cyrus show her boobs again bet it would be covered non-stop. She is by the way my favorite Weapon of Mass Distraction. Nuclear Bomb goes off at white house no news coverage. Miley Cyrus lights a blunt up on stage over seas head lines around the world.. Go Miley…
I’ll continue this post on the next two parts. So this is Part one of a three part story. In the next segment I’ll interview Chris Dorsey and in the third part I’ll show some of the tech being out there to use to spy on you. So Stay Tuned.
