Feds raid Blackwater's armory in firearms probe ,By MIKE BAKER

Feds raid Blackwater's armory in firearms probe
By MIKE BAKER – 5 hours ago

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal agents raided Blackwater Worldwide this week as part of an investigation into whether the private security company sidestepped federal laws prohibiting the private purchase of automatic assault rifles, the company said Thursday.

Blackwater spokeswoman Anne Tyrrell said investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched Blackwater's armory at its corporate headquarters in Moyock on Tuesday as part of the investigation. She said she did not know whether the weapons in question were seized.

The company signed agreements in 2005 in which Blackwater financed the purchase of 34 automatic weapons. Camden County Sheriff Tony Perry became the official owner of the weapons, but Blackwater was allowed to keep most of the guns at its armory.

Federal laws prohibit private parties from buying automatic weapons.

"We believe all aspects of our contacts with the sheriffs office are lawful and proper," Tyrrell said, adding that the ATF has known about the arrangement for a long time.

She said it is not unusual for Blackwater to store automatic weapons because the company is licensed to sell, provide training on, or even manufacture firearms.

Both ATF and U.S. Attorney George Holding declined to comment.

The 2005 agreements gives the sheriff's office unlimited access to the weapons, including 17 Romanian AK-47s and 17 Bushmasters. But Perry said his department has only used the AK-47s in shooting practice at Blackwater and that none of his 19 deputies are qualified to use them.

The 34 weapons are registered in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record to the Camden County sheriff. The AK-47s and five of the Bushmasters were stored and used at Blackwater while the remainder of the weapons were assigned to local deputies, Perry had said.

Blackwater is the largest private security firm in Iraq, and it has been under scrutiny as a federal grand jury in Washington investigates the company's involvement in the shooting deaths of 17 Iraqi civilians. The firm is also under investigation for possible weapons smuggling allegations — violations the firm strongly denies.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/05/20070509-12.html
here is the official White House Press release link for NSPD 51

National Security Presidential Directive 51(2) In this directive: (a) "Category" refers to the categories of executive departments and agencies listed in Annex A to this directive; (b) "Catastrophic Emergency" means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions;
(10) Federal Government COOP, COG, and ECG plans and operations shall be appropriately integrated with the emergency plans and capabilities of State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure, as appropriate, in order to promote interoperability and to prevent redundancies and conflicting lines of authority. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall coordinate the integration of Federal continuity plans and operations with State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure, as appropriate, in order to provide for the delivery of essential services during an emergency.
(22) Revocation. Presidential Decision Directive 67 of October 21, 1998 ("Enduring Constitutional Government and Continuity of Government Operations"), including all Annexes thereto, is hereby revoked.
(23) Annex A and the classified Continuity Annexes, attached hereto, are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this directive.
(24) Security. This directive and the information contained herein shall be protected from unauthorized disclosure, provided that, except for Annex A, the Annexes attached to this directive are classified and shall be accorded appropriate handling, consistent with applicable Executive Orders
Of course the classified material is classified for a reason?
(6) The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government. In order to advise and assist the President in that function, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (APHS/CT) is hereby designated as the National Continuity Coordinator. The National Continuity Coordinator, in coordination with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA), without exercising directive authority, shall coordinate the development and implementation of continuity policy for executive departments and agencies. The Continuity Policy Coordination Committee (CPCC), chaired by a Senior Director from the Homeland Security Council staff, designated by the National Continuity Coordinator, shall be the main day-to-day forum for such policy coordination.
"The directive specifies that the president has the power to declare a catastrophic emergency and does not specify who has the power to declare said emergency over. It is unclear how the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive will reconcile with the National Emergencies Act, a U.S. federal law passed in 1976, which gives Congress oversight over presidential emergency powers during such emergencies. The National Emergencies Act is not mentioned in the unclassified text of the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive. After receiving concerned communications from constituents, in July 2007 U.S. Representative and Homeland Security Committee member Peter DeFazio made an official request to examine the classified Continuity Annexes described above in a secure "bubbleroom" in the United States Capitol, but his request was denied by the White House, which cited "national security concerns." This was the first time DeFazio has been denied access to documents. He was quoted as saying, "We're talking about the continuity of the government of the United States of America...I would think that would be relevant to any member of Congress, let alone a member of the Homeland Security Committee." After this denial, DeFazio joined with two colleagues (Bennie Thompson, chairman of the committee; and Chris Carney, chairman of the Homeland Security oversight subcommittee) in a renewed effort to gain access to the documents. What I find very disturbing is that it goes beyond Marshal Law and the suspension of Habeaus Corpus to include Tribal Governments and private sector owners under direct control of the Enduring Constitutional Government.Private Security Companies such as Blackwater.The leaders of these tribal government may be more than willing to conform due to the great profit they have been baited with in the form of their very lucrative Casinos and Gaming Centers though they are considered Sovereign Nations. Of course the classified material is classified for a reason? The directive specifies that the president has the power to declare a catastrophic emergency and does not specify who has the power to declare said emergency over. It is unclear how the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive will reconcile with the National Emergencies Act, a U.S. federal law passed in 1976, which gives Congress oversight over presidential emergency powers during such emergencies. The National Emergencies Act is not mentioned in the unclassified text of the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive."

And it is not as if Blackwater doesn't have some very high priced lawyers that would know that in a constitutional government this would be an empty ambition....they have a good chance of at least having this case heard under their proposal...if at the least it delays justice for a minute for these widows.They have inside info that they have a good chance because it's rigged.It's a test balloon!
A question posed by a reader."Now I'm no Blackwater expert, but do you believe that Blackwater could take on the entire US Airforce, Army, and Navy? It's seems a little unlikely to me."
They would not have to under NSPD51 (National Security Presidential Directive 51).They would be executing officers and NCO's that refused to adhere/conform to this suspension of the Constitution.This is a test balloon!They are not accountable! Never have been! What lies in the classified part of NSPD 51?Why was Homeland Security Committee member Peter DeFazio denied access to this classified document?

"WASHINGTON D.C. police will seal off entire neighborhoods, set up checkpoints and kick out strangers under a new program that D.C. officials hope will help them rescue the city from its out-of-control violence.Under an executive order expected to be announced today, police Chief Cathy L. Lanier will have the authority to designate “Neighborhood Safety Zones.” At least six officers will man cordons around those zones and demand identification from people coming in and out of them. Anyone who doesn’t live there, work there or have “legitimate reason” to be there will be sent away or face arrest, documents obtained by The Examiner show."
This is being done under EXECUTIVE ORDER. As in the Executive of the United States of America?

The great profit in enabling some to be "Homeless" Part I

http://www.homelessokc.blogspot.com/2008/06/city-rescue-mission-finances.html
In my research ,most of the homeless dysfunction is enabled through corruption at all levels.Many are addicted in one form or another causing incapacitation and dysfunction. I am at this time working on a article about the City Rescue Mission shelter in Oklahoma City and How most of the over $3 million dollars in "cash "donations is pocketed by the paid "Staff"(only a select few working there are aware and benefitting), by fraud. For example; All the clothes that the 400 or so daily residents receive through their "clothing closet",once a month, is donated(used or practically new,2 pants,3 shirts,one pair of shoes) but it states on their tax form 990 that they spend $205,108 on clothing expenses.They have so much clothes donated that the excess is bundled,baled and sold at bulk.These "corporations"( a few select men who are adept in the "incorporation game") have learned to profit greatly on the enabled suffering and complacency.It's big money . Hence the reason they run groups on tours through these missions at peak hours of capacity.To "impress" how badly the money is needed.But these donors never really know how little these "homeless" actually benefit,unless they are able to embed themselves there at the mission ,which I believe no one does,except for me, that I'm aware of.There is much more to this story and it's coming along...Hence the reason my ...homelessokc.blogspot.comIt is not to the corporations benefit if they have 20-30 people in a mission. It does not make a profound impact.400-600 people makes a definite visual impact! And it pulls at the heart strings of these kind folks who really do want to make a difference in their brothers and sisters lives.And they do what their concious dictates,they give generously,out of love.Unknowing that their gifts are being used for the enrichment of a few select,fraudently.
An unnamed person that wants anonymity( I found this info during my research and by observation;seek ,ask and Ye shall find), who works for ******** *********and is affiliated with ******** ****** at HomelessAlliance is a social worker who worked for awhile at the City Rescue Mission.Her job was to be an advocate to these people who found themselves there,but she took it a step further,realizing that many of these people didn't have the capacity,motivation or the power for some reason or another to find the resources that were available to them and then to use them and to get around the walls set up for their failure(She saw many that had been living there for years,75%)due to their poverty(financial,educational,spiritual..etc) and she made it a point to actively seek them out rather then wait for them to come to her office,which was the policy of the Mission,wait them out.She was succeeding in emptying this Mission by getting many housing through the section 8 program,the public housing program,foodstamps,disability,treatment for medical conditions...etc.The administration at the City Rescue Mission took notice of her success and decided that they would tell her that they really needed her in another position and that they would immediately fill the active seeking social worker position with somebody else.they never did. She eventually stopped working there.

In 1984 ,the Reagan Administration emptied the Mental institutions, gave these people a disability check and lots of prescriptions and basically let them fend for themselves.The system failed them for a reason.An agenda. Many at the Mission are mentally and emotionally incapacitated.They are preyed on by drug dealers,mainly Crack dealers who profit off most of their $600-2100 monthly disability checks.Much of the mental illness/dysfunction is drug induced. A vicious cycle. Party on the 1st and the 15th of the month for 4-5 days and then live in poverty for the rest of the month at the Mission .Yes, they literally smoke up $600-2100 in a few days and return to the mission financially,physically,emotionally and spiritually spent.They are enslaved , disenfranchised,disempowered and under duress ,none the wiser as to the actual reason why. They feel worthless.All due to a few that profit greatly from their suffering.They/We have been greatly deceived.How do we really help these poor people?Our people.Our Nation. $1,000 x 200 people(mission)= $ 200,000. Liberal estimate,very liberal. And that is only at the mission. This goes on at every mission.And everywhere across the city.It equates in the excess of tens of millions of dollars in the course of only a few days.See the great motivation.

"That's right, let's open up a mission and get rich! "The great profit in enabling some to be "Homeless"PartII

from Bill in San Antonio,Texas!!'That's right, let's open up a mission and get rich! I've sent the info to 'ol Larry the librarian{the "former"city rescue mission librarian}. You know when the new "Prez"{Tom Jones?} arrived they decided the homeless didn't need a mission library, although books are donated by the box-full; some homeless can't get a public library card ,having no I.D. or out of state I.D., and Larry had been faithful in that position for years without ever being paid. Yea, they don't need books! We'll keep 'em retarded so they'll remain at the mission and add to the impressive numbers that justify my $94,000 salary!Larry, just as we did, knew there was corruption, but not to that extent.At first when I emailed him, he thought I was full of B.S. when I mentioned the salaries of some{due to Part I}. He then apologized when I told him to look at the whole document(ex. the last pages,http://www.homelessokc.blogspot.com/2008/06/city-rescue-mission-finances.html ).Anyway, I've passed it on ,as I'm sure they'll tell 2 friends, and they'll tell 2 friends, and so on, and so on. It just might get the attention of one(or some) that are in a position to bring about a reformation for the benefit of all.Gotta go now. Sometimes I don't make it to the library for days. Be patient with me. Here's a video of an old commercial that I believe they should play again. I'm sure you'll remember it. Ciao ~wÃif '

Guilt by association?Association by Guilt?"The great profit in enabling some to be "Homeless"PartIII

I've been told,even,by the homeless that it's too negative,my expose...I'm too negative(lol) .And only because they love and respect me and they have fear for themselves and me.Well,actually just a couple.And by a supposed advocate for God.He actually has no fear for me or love.In response to "RE: OKC City Rescue Mission, deceptive Financial Report on Website and Form 990's truth" sent to Tim Ulrich. "Teodoro, I was wondering if you could take me off of your email list…I am not interested right now about hearing all of the negative things that are being discussed… Thank you again. Monday, June 16, 2008 11:20:51 AMTim "refugeokc@gmail.com tim ulrich


I would love him to respond to my previous letters that I sent him, that he never responded to.After our first and only meeting in the alley(while he was in the process of throwing someones bedding away,in the alley not part of "his "property)we exchanged cards and I looked at his site and he obviously looked at mine. I sent him a letter offering my help and some video and images of the place he bought ,off my website. He must of seen I was for real.
http://refugeokc.wordpress.com/ ...right across the street from the City Rescue Mission.This man has personally harrassed "homeless" and has thrown personal belongings of theirs in the trash.He plans ,as he once told me in the alley,to have it blocked off,fenced.He makes no effort to reach out to them.He made "Friends" ,though,with the administration at the City Rescue Mission.When?,actually?As to transient occupants,he prayed with them?He had them all thrown out on the street with the help of Oklahoma City's finest,while they had still been paying rent.And, literally, threw their personal belonging's in the trash.All of it. He has since prettied up the new site with some creative ,selective editing.The original url was refugeokc.org which stated a slightly different mission,that was to include those from the mission.It also stated how the place was bought and for how much.Over $200,000 .He supposedly bought the place not knowing it was a crack house?How does one buy a property that one has not inspected prior to the sale?He was a former youth minister from California.Yes,Lifechurch.tv did a good job reaching out. I have not seen them since.

But Tim forgot to delete this article by Carla Hinton from the "Oklahoman" that pats them on the back!http://refugeokc.wordpress.com/2008/04/11/the-oklahoman-newspaper/
"The bustling effort to repurpose a squalid apartment building at 823 W California was started a year ago by the new owner, who bought it without realizing it was a notorious haven for criminal activity.As Californian Tim Ulrich painted the walls of the dilapidated building, a prostitute hiding from a pimp crept through the filthy rooms and pointed out a putrid mattress that had been used for illicit encounters.Desperate people knocked on the doors and windows, looking for a crack fix or other illegal drugs.Gang members surrounded him as he sat in his car, perhaps sizing up the person bold enough to step onto their territory.Ulrich, 32, decided to sell the place. Quickly.But God had other plans."
"They are intent on making the building once known as a drug house and “Satan’s stronghold” into a ministry hub for churches and volunteers who want to help the homeless and indigent."
"“We are so excited, we can’t see straight,” said the Rev. Tom Jones, president and chief executive of City Rescue Mission, 800 W California. “Right up until Tim bought it, that building was one of the biggest crack houses in the city. We really believe in what Tim’s doing and support it.” Jones said the building’s proximity to City Rescue Mission previously proved tempting for people living at the faith-based homeless shelter and struggling to break free from drug or alcohol addictions. “We were working diligently to get people off drugs, and they could go right across the street and get anything they wanted,” Jones said. "
" Ulrich said it was several months after he had met and prayed with many of the transient occupants of the supposedly vacant apartment building that he and his wife decided to heed the Lord’s call and move to Oklahoma City. People from different congregations heard about the couple’s move of faith and helpers began arriving."


Guilt by association?Association by GUILT? He has never responded except for the very recent letter asking me to take him off my email list.dated Monday, June 16, 2008 11:20:51 AM Now ,in all reality ,why would he not want to be at least informed?

to understand the true tragedy of War and Murder

(Doug is a young man that in my opinion has just recently returned from war.Stature,physical and mental, indicates to me he is a trained soldier.I'm familiar with the air of the military.He attended Skyline Urban ministry's "saturday night live" which includes a service and sermon for the poor, distributed by a volunteer group,usually religious.Doug on his first visit there started slapping prepared food containers set up on a table to the ground and had to be restrained peacefully by many.He was intent on finishing his Mission and so as a result had to be arrested and jailed.I saw him at the library today.)
His appearance was ragged, the Saturday we saw him ,compared to what he used to look like the week before.As a direct result of being evicted/barred from theCity Rescue Mission, due to the violence and arrest he suffered prior to Saturday.He had been a healthy individual, carrying himself with dignity and honor,his clothes were clean and he was still in top physical shape.Who I saw on sat. indicated to me (now I know why) that he was on a descent.He was on the last of his hopes when we saw him and that is what triggered the outburst, hope. He heard it,he felt it and he knew it as he sat with us and you,Pastor Tremper, were reading the prayers and giving the sermon. It's not over.Pray that what ever is hindering him(unbelief,self doubt,Satan) from reaching out that it be removed and that he be sent specifically to me.There is more to the story of him that I have observed and know then I have the time or space to write to you. I was sent to him and he was there when I was moved to go to the Mission and eat. I never eat there.His table was the only one with an open seat,that I took.The men sitted there made observations and commented on them and as is my nature I enlightened them all with my comments and Doug did not join in ,but was obviously greatly affected,apparent by the emotions on his face.One thing I did say in general to the group,but intended for him,was that some of us came to the Mission to learn something that could not be learned any other way for the sake of our brothers,but that they somehow had forgotten why and had got caught up in the game and were complacent due to their perceived impotence.A lie of impotence.He became deeply troubled.He in his young life has learned something of the truth of this world and it has caused him great pain.He is reaching out in the only way he knows how,but he does not trust me,yet .It takes time for most people to trust me as I intimidate them,unintentionally.Then I become common to them and they view me through their own biases ,prejudices ,discrimination's and unbelief,though they felt the grace from me to begin with.That's what intimidates them.What they feel .Hope.What they hear,wisdom.But thank God not all people are this way and they are able to shine and have been shining to help light the way.His mission, was to deny to himself and to everybody else there the peace and hope of God our Father by turning gifts into trash.It still didn't work,though many were rightfully troubled and distressed.Maybe they will be able to understand the true tragedy of War and Murder,how it robs of us all of such beautiful people and the love they so desperately want to share and share in.When I said I was 80 percent sure he had been in the service I meant it in the context that I'm also 80 percent sure the sun will rise tomorrow.I've been deceived before,but not very often. I'm pretty sure the sun will rise tomorrow,if I'm alive and God wills it.Is it for certain,only God knows.As only God knows the end of time as humanity knows and perceives it.Peace.Amen.Sincerely,Teodoro Leon III

Doug is apparently out of jail as I have seen him at the downtown library.He is carrying a clear bag with clothes in it.
I heard from Max that Doug got into some trouble at the City Rescue Mission a little while back and was arrested.He had to be subdued at that time also with the help of 4 men,plus a police officer that promptly arrested him.I believe that he was barred from the Mission as a result of the violence and arrest.He is obviously enraged for his temper to be so out of control over something.Living on the streets will not help much unless it forces him to seek help.He is looking rather shabby, and very troubled,rabid. I really believe that he is suffering from PTSS,whether the trauma is militarily inflicted is of no relevance,though I still believe he is prior service related.Pray that he is steered in the right direction and that we may be able to help him.He used to go to City Church in the morning to eat,but he has not been there since last week since the first of the month.He looks really ragged and unkempt.Most people can't survive outdoors and keep up some sense of dignity as the result of the stigma attached to the word "homeless".I have been 40 days or more in the wilderness that is called Downtown Oklahoma City and am still able to be at peace and keep clean and carry myself well, as you can see. I'm graced by the God of my Love.I'm graced by the Love of my God.
I "LIVE" where ever I am.Let us allow our brothers and sisters to "LIVE" where ever they are and what ever circumstance and situation they find themselves.Because a man might live in a mansion does not guarantee that he "lives " with peace and contentment.

National Security Presidential Directive 51 – The Last Step Toward Dictatorship by Michael Bonanno.
If you like having George W. Bush as your president or The Regime, of which it seems George W. Bush is just a minor part, as your leader, you’ll love National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD 51. This news was released on the official White House web site.In it, under almost any catastrophic condition anywhere in the world, as vaguely defined by this directive, George W. Bush will become a dictator. Under NSPD 51, the USA will become the ECG , The Enduring Constitutional Government (and it will be anything but constitutional).He’ll not be a dictator in The United States of America or, actually, The Former United States of America, as The Regime has divided the citizens of this country against one another.If the mainstream media does not report on this directive, it will be complicit in installing the first self appointed dictator in the history of our nation.Two questions come to mind when I think about this directive.Why now, as we draw closer to the 2008 presidential election?How can anyone support this regime?To friendship,Michael“The people should not fear the government, the government should fear the people.” - From the movie “V for Vendetta”World Conditions And Action ItemsCDs“Everybody Knows”

Bush's Detention Facilities,ICE(immigration and customs enforcement)KBR(former Halliburton subsidiary)...

Bush's detention facilities
Posted: May 30, 20071:00 am Eastern
By Jerome R. Corsi© 2008
Houston-based KBR, formerly the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton Co., has a contingency contract in place with the Department of Homeland Security to construct detention facilities in the event of a national emergency.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, spokeswoman Jamie Zuieback confirmed yesterday in a telephone interview that the KBR contract for $385 million was awarded initially in January 2006 for a one-year base period with four one-year options. It has been extended into 2007. KBR held a previous emergency detention contract with ICE from 2000 to 2005.
Zuieback told this writer the primary intent of the KBR contract was to build temporary detention facilities that could be used in the event of a mass migration across the border that required ICE to respond on a quick basis to an illegal-immigration crisis.

"The idea of the KBR contract is to support the Army Corp of Engineers," Zuieback explained, "in case we experienced a sudden mass immigration and we had to respond quickly. We would need immediate detention facilities in the form of temporary housing that would enable us to determine if the large numbers of illegal immigrants were political or economically motivated, or if they were criminals or terrorists."
Zuieback confirmed that the KBR contract for detention facilities could apply to national emergencies, including natural disasters.
Several times, Zuieback insisted in the telephone interview that the KBR contract was a "contingency contract," specifying that detention facilities were to be built only when an immigration emergency or a national emergency, including a natural disaster, had been declared.
Heather Browne, spokeswoman for KBR, also sent me an e-mail yesterday confirming KBR built a temporary facility in New Orleans that provided cantonment for up to 500 federal detention officers who were tasked with maintaining law and order during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Last week, WND reported President Bush had signed May 9 a little-reported National Security and Homeland Security Directive (NSPD-51 and NSPD-20) that granted extraordinary powers to the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight.
NSPD-51/HSPD-20, published on the White House website, rescinds Presidential Decision Directive 67 signed by Bill Clinton Oct. 21, 1998, and establishes a new White House office of the National Continuity Coordinator, a position now occupied by Frances Fragos Townsend, the assistant to the president for Homeland Security and Terrorism.
The new directive concentrates an unprecedented amount of emergency authority in the office of the president, specifying that the president now has the authority to direct "National Essential Functions" of all federal state, local, territorial and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations in the event of a national emergency.
The directive loosely defines "catastrophic emergency" as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."
The KBR contingency contract appears to give ICE the ability to have detention facilities constructed under the president's direction in response to a national emergency as declared under NSPD-51/HSPD-20.
The initial White House press release announcing the presidential directive included no background explanation of the directive or statement by the president. The press release merely posted NSPD-51/HSPD-20 on the White House website.
Sections 23 and 24 of NSPD-51/HSPD-20 specify that Annex A and the classified Continuity Annexes are incorporated into the directive, even though they remain secret and are not available for examination as part of the published document.
Still, Zuieback said she was not familiar with NSPD-51/HSPD-20. At her request, this writer e-mailed to her the White House website link to the directive posting.
The White House declined comment on the initial WND story and has not yet responded to the story or to my previous column on the subject.

Emergency detention plan: 'This way to the camps!'

Lanier plans to seal off rough ’hoods in latest effort to stop wave of violence

Filed under: WASHINGTON , Michael Neibauer and Bill Myers , Neighborhood Safety Zones
WASHINGTON D.C. police will seal off entire neighborhoods, set up checkpoints and kick out strangers under a new program that D.C. officials hope will help them rescue the city from its out-of-control violence.
Under an executive order expected to be announced today, police Chief Cathy L. Lanier will have the authority to designate “Neighborhood Safety Zones.” At least six officers will man cordons around those zones and demand identification from people coming in and out of them. Anyone who doesn’t live there, work there or have “legitimate reason” to be there will be sent away or face arrest, documents obtained by The Examiner show.
Lanier has been struggling to reverse D.C.’s spiraling crime rate but has been forced by public outcry to scale back several initiatives including her “All Hands on Deck” weekends and plans for warrantless, door-to-door searches for drugs and guns.
Under today’s proposal, the no-go zones will last up to 10 days, according to internal police documents. Front-line officers are already being signed up for training on running the blue curtains.
Peter Nickles, the city’s interim attorney general, said the quarantine would have “a narrow focus.”
“This is a very targeted program that has been used in other cities,” Nickles told The Examiner. “I’m not worried about the constitutionality of it.”
Others are. Kristopher Baumann, chairman of the D.C. police union and a former lawyer, called the checkpoint proposal “breathtaking.”
Shelley Broderick, president of the D.C.-area American Civil Liberties Union and the dean of the University of the District of Columbia’s law school, said the plan was “cockamamie.”
“I think they tried this in Russia and it failed,” she said. “It’s just our experience in this city that we always end up targeting poor people and people of color, and we treat the kids coming home from choir practice the same as we treat those kids who are selling drugs.”
The proposal has the provisional support of D.C. Councilman Harry “Tommy” Thomas, D-Ward 5 ,whose ward has become a war zone.
“They’re really going to crack down on what we believe to be a systemic problem with open-air drug markets,” Thomas told The Examiner.
Thomas said, though, that he worried about D.C. “moving towards a police state.”
Staff Writer Scott McCabe contributed to this report.

Councilman Thomas say's he's worried that D.C.,"moving towards a police state." wake up!!Going in and going out?Everyone will be subjected to this police state measure.Executive order as in the executive president?
Freedom?Peter Nickles, the city interim A.G. told The Examiner. "I am not worried about the constitutionality of it."Not because it's unconstitutional,but for the reason that he thinks he won't be held responsible or accountable.None of them do,including Police Chief Lanier.NSPD 51 .It's an agenda with a motive.These people have NO wisdom,apparent in their empty ambitions.Keep sticking your collective cowardly heads in the sand and watch what happens to your own ass.Enslavement.
though there is hope...be strong like minded.Teodoro Leon III
