Anyone need a reason to put a password on your cellphone? Here it is. this woman, Sandra Arquiett, had her phone seized as part of an investigation she was a big time drug dealer and was only sentenced to probation. Later on a friend asked why she put pictures of herself legs spread in skimpy clothes on her Facebook profile. She never had one. The DEA created it and used it to contact suspects including at least one wanted fugitive. Would anyone be surprised if a criminal offed her in retaliation?
In court the so-called Justice Department is arguing, as noted by the Washington Post article below, "if you’re arrested for a drug crime, including a crime unserious enough to merit a sentence of probation, the government retains the power to (a) steal your identity, (b) use that identity for drug policing, thus making your name and face known to potentially dangerous criminals, (c) interact with those criminals while posing as you, which could subject you to reprisals from those criminals, (d) expose photos of your family, including children, to those criminals, and (e) do all of this without your consent, and with no regard for your safety or public reputation."
The article points out the governments habit of pressuring people into being informants and claiming no responsibility when these unwilling participants die! I knew about Rachel Hoffmann in Tallahassee, Florida forced to wear a wire, disappeared during a supervised deal to buy two and a half ounces of cocaine, fifteen hundred Ecstasy pills, and a semi-automatic handgun from two convicted felons. She was later found murdered. I did not hear that campus cops at UMass used heroin addiction on a student to force cooperation as an informant. He then died of an overdose. Another shocking story is cited on DEA agents abandoning Daniel Chong in a cell for four and a half days without food, water or a toilet until he was on the brink of death. He was initially arrested on a possession charge when trying to buy cannabis to celebrate 4/20.
The point of the article is that the dehumanizing of drug offenders has caused passive acceptance of massive injustice, all apparently OK according to the Justice Department. The same strategy is used in this war on terror and other perceived enemies insofar as sheeple are taught to believe in them. Like the war on drugs, specifically cannabis, which was launched on racism against Blacks and Mexicans accused of being super strength violent rapists and whatnot.
As for stealing the identities of "terrorists" that is a whole other can of worms discussed specifically in regards to 9/11 in the documentary "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime," which breaks down how some of the alleged suicidal terrorists were still alive after 9/11 or died before and who they were.
