Gang Stalking: SWATing Bloggers & 18 U.S.C. 241
Michelle Malkin, conservative political analyst and blogger, recently wrote about thugs who made false 911calls resulting in SWAT teams being deployed against bloggers whose opinions they disliked. This is domestic terrorism under the Patriot Act, as well as a violation of 18 U.S.C. 241, the "conspiracy against [civil] rights" statute in the federal criminal code.
Malkin quoted former Justice Department official J. Christian Adams pointing out, it is a federal violation of Title 18 U.S.C. Section 241 to conspire to deprive someone of his "free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States."
There are implications of the Patriot Act and certain amendments to the NDAA that could provide grounds for indefinite, Guantanamo-style detention without trial or access to counsel, as well as enhanced sentencing guidelines, for such SWATing activity. 18 U.S.C. 241 also carries the potential of life imprisonment or the death penalty if death results. The death penalty would be applicable in a case in which the police screwed up on a false 911 SWATing call such as the recent New York case of retired Marine Kenneth Chamberlain.
SWATing was something that I experienced in the Summer of 1995. I was in the midst of an employment dispute with a Wall Street securities firm (acquired the next year by one of the largest banks in Canada). While working at the firm, I had found fictitious accounts, and had reason to believe that both money laundering and micro-stock "pump and dump" schemes were being facilitated at the firm. The firm was "mobbed up" which became clearer to me when my gang stalking experience was initiated. It was later revealed in a F.O.I.A. suit that this firm was subject to a joint task force investigation including members of the FBI, NYPD, SEC, NASD and several employee informants. (Labella v. FBI, et.al, 07-cv-2330 (EDNY 2008), Defendants' Vaughn Index).
One night in that summer of 1995, at about 3 a.m., I was awoken by a SWAT team in my Whitestone, Queens apartment. A phony 911 call had been placed stating that I had been holding a hostage at gunpoint. I later settled the employment dispute with the firm for nearly six-figures. I know other gang stalking victims have had similar experiences with workplace mobbing and even SWATing.
18 U.S.C. Sect. 241 is the proper vehicle for prosecuting the human garbage involved in these gang stalking groups, and, others that conspire with them.
