Victor Ramirez slaps elderly man on the ground

Officer Victor Ramirez of Broward County Florida slaps elderly man while he is on the ground.
What appears to be an older man who is stumbling slightly, and headed for the bathroom, gets bullied by this Officer Ramirez. Once the elderly man turns around and sees why the cop is pushing him, the officer pushes him to the ground by the head. Once the man is on the ground and wants to know why he is there and the officer over shouts him, and then the man replies. “Fuck you!” Then the officer tells him some more scripted nonsense about how the man has to listen he slaps him upside the head. Likely causing a pretty nasty headache.

All the while the man filming this incident in this particular clip is eating his messy McDonalds. All we get from him was a “hey?” to the cop when he struck the man.

The Austin Police Department has a long history of troubled community relations. There are many reasons for local citizens to have trust issues with this police force, and now there are many more.

It looks like four Austin criminal defense lawyers and two advocacy groups have beat back efforts to dismiss their lawsuit that alleged lawyers’ confidential phone calls with incarcerated clients are being recorded and given to prosecutors.

Among other things, the lawyers claimed that their incomes have suffered since they would travel to the jail to avoid prejudicing their clients’ cases by talking on the phone.

“The undersigned agrees that being forced to conduct in-person visits, rather than quick and inexpensive telephone calls, demonstrates concrete injury. … What previously could be accomplished in a 10-minute phone call necessitates a potentially hours-long journey,” wrote U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Lane in a report and recommendations in Austin Lawyers Guild v. Securus Technologies.

A U.S. district judge must accept the magistrate judge’s recommendations to make the ruling official.

Defendant Securus Technologies Inc. contracts with Travis County to provide telephone service for the county’s correctional facilities. The plaintiffs also sued Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton, District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg and County Attorney David Hamilton and each of their offices. The defendants have denied the allegations.

2011 Senator Ron Wyden tells us that the Patriot Act will justify a warrantless wiretapping program

four-year extension of the u_s_a_ patriot act
i served on the intelligence committee for over a decade
and i want to deliver warning
this afternoon
when the american people find out
how their government had secretly interpreted the patriot act
they are going to be stunned
and they are going to be angry
ask senators
did you know what the swine actually permits
why do you know before you voted on it
the fact is anyone can read the plain text of the patriot act
and yet many members of congress have no idea
how the lives being secretly interpreted
by the executive branch
because that interpretation
is classified
it’s almost as if there were two patriot act
and many many members of congress
have not read the one that matters

You are being watched: National Security Agency spies on you for your protection

So it has taken over a minute and a half for the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation)’s website to load. It just so happens that they have released a timeline of how long our privacy has been invaded. Coincidence, I think not. It is called throttling and it can be done by relays, your internet service provider and anyone intercepting your online activity. If you have noticed your computer, phone, mobile device or home phone acting weird, the chances are your communications are being watched.  And we thought censorship and spying was what the commies did, right? Well now that we mention communists, This timeline is an offer of proof that our government has been spying on its citizens since at least 1952 and was caught in 1975 – When the Senate “Church Committee” Investigation Uncovers Illegal Domestic Spying by NSA, Recommends Reforms –

If you are using your cell phone, blackberry, home phone (land line), facebook, twitter, or any electronic devices to communicate with your people and your doing stuff you would not want your Pastor to know about, Stop doing it now. Sealed indictments are for real. If you log on to a social network, an email address or anything that can be personally identifiable to you or your family, you have passed the threshold of establishing a connection with your device. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Ask somebody.

This is not legal advice, nor is it intended as  a threat, it is simply a warning from a concerned citizen.  Stop any and all illegal activity immediately. Write letters in a sealed envelope, and that is all. Tape up the back of the letter.  I am not a Lawyer, nor is this article given as legal advise.
