Are cameras the new guns?

Concerned citizens sitting in their house notice someone outside their neighbor's house, looking in the window.
They get their camera in order to catch the peeping tom in the act.
The peeping tom turns out to be a police officer who was investigating their neighbor, and now the concerned citizens are in jail for recording a police officer on video.

It's becoming clear that the police are unwilling to be videotaped any longer, and here are some of the reasons why that has come to pass:

Peaceful protesters are gathered at a rally.
One police officer goes to his car and comes back to where an elderly man, one of the protesters, was sitting on the ground and the officer uses a pair of nunchucks to break the man's arm {compound fracture with bone protruding} in order to intimidate the rest of the crowd.

Another peaceful demonstration, where men dressed completely in black wearing black bandanas over their faces wade into the crowd and start fighting with people at random.
The police consider the crowd to have become unruly and begin launching tear gas and start to drive the protesters away.

A few clever protesters caught the men in black on video, and followed them after the demonstration was broken up ... back to the police station.
As it turns out, the men in black were in fact police officers who were deliberately trying to cause a riot in order to create an excuse for their fellow officers to break up the protest.

... So it seems that it's now illegal to videotape police, uniformed or otherwise, in three states and they are looking to expand the policy nationwide.
Personally, even as a Canadian, this makes me shudder: the police can do anything they want and get away with it as it is, but with video cameras recording them doing things they should not at least the citizens have some proof that the police are committing crimes, and can use such video evidence to warn the rest of us what they are doing.

Without the right to defend ourselves in this way we are all at their mercy, and since new police are being trained to see the general public as enemies {they even tell them that the founding fathers, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Jefferson - were terrorists} I don't believe that much mercy will be shown.

I am deeply concerned about this and believe it is a big step towards the NAU becoming a police state to rival China.

Re: Are cameras the new guns?

WOW! That's messed up. The people are going to get fed up with the police and all hell is going to break loose. Video taping the police is not against the law and it should never be against the law.

You are absolutely correct, and this is the way things should be: {we can all learn from this}
I remember a friend from Quebec tell me that in a certain town the police were getting arrogant and committing crimes.
The citizens ALL rallied and demanded that the entire police force be replaced by completely unrelated individuals except for one = that is the real power of the People.

Unfortunately it looks like the situation in the U.S. may be too complicated for such a solution to work.
The police are using sonic weapons called L.R.A.D. = Long Range Acoustic Device, also referred to as a 'sound cannon' which permanently damages the middle ear, and I have seen a finished prototype low frequency unit as well on You tube.
The low frequency unit is probably all they'll need because they took a steel cargo container {the huge metal boxes that can be transferred from ship to train to truck for goods distribution} and fitted it with 40 18" drivers driven by a 40 000 watt {40kW} amplifier.
just look at it:


So what can you do with a huge subwoofer like that?
Level buildings?
Summon Godzilla from the depths of the ocean?

Broadcast tones around 17Hz, {just below our hearing range} and people will feel sick, afraid, and some will even think that something supernatural is taking place.
Our eyeballs have a resonant frequency close to that, so there is a chance people may 'see things' if it's loud enough.
It's quite disturbing and not many people will be able to stay near it for long.

And if that isn't enough, they may bring out the microwave cannons.

The point I'm trying to make is that we, the people of the NAU are not being allowed to protest anymore, and the reason they're so anxious to shut us up is that they're afraid we'll wake more people up to the Truth, and the elites' house of cards will fall.

So now you know why I take the time to write these things: to alert people to the reality of our situation while I still can.
{and I'm not joking about that since I read that soon they'll be throwing people like me in jail for writing things like this - they've already labeled 9/ 11 Truthers as 'dangerous terrorists', so learn while you can}

Re: Are cameras the new guns?

Quote:
Infrasound has been known to cause feelings of awe or fear in humans. Since it is not consciously perceived, it can make people feel vaguely that supernatural events are taking place.[citation needed]
Some film soundtracks make use of infrasound to produce unease or disorientation in the audience. Irréversible is one such movie.
The infrasound and low-frequency noise produced by some wind turbines is believed to cause certain breathing and digestive problems in humans and other animals in close proximity to the turbines.[16]
[edit] Infrasonic 17 Hz tone experiment

On May 31, 2003, a team of UK researchers held a mass experiment where they exposed some 700 people to music laced with soft 17 Hz sine waves played at a level described as "near the edge of hearing", produced by an extra-long stroke sub-woofer mounted two-thirds of the way from the end of a seven-meter-long plastic sewer pipe. The experimental concert (entitled Infrasonic) took place in the Purcell Room over the course of two performances, each consisting of four musical pieces. Two of the pieces in each concert had 17 Hz tones played underneath. In the second concert, the pieces that were to carry a 17 Hz undertone were swapped so that test results would not focus on any specific musical piece. The participants were not told which pieces included the low-level 17 Hz near-infrasonic tone. The presence of the tone resulted in a significant number (22%) of respondents reporting anxiety, uneasiness, extreme sorrow, nervous feelings of revulsion or fear, chills down the spine and feelings of pressure on the chest.[17][18] In presenting the evidence to British Association for the Advancement of Science, Professor Richard Wiseman said, "These results suggest that low frequency sound can cause people to have unusual experiences even though they cannot consciously detect infrasound. Some scientists have suggested that this level of sound may be present at some allegedly haunted sites and so cause people to have odd sensations that they attribute to a ghost—our findings support these ideas."[19]
[edit] The Ghost in the Machine

Research by Vic Tandy, a lecturer at Coventry University, suggested that the frequency 19 Hz was responsible for many ghost sightings. He was working late one night alone in a supposedly haunted laboratory at Warwick, when he felt very anxious and could detect a grey blob out of the corner of his eye. When he turned to face it, there was nothing.
The following day, he was working on his fencing foil, with the handle held in a vice. Although there was nothing touching it, the blade started to vibrate wildly. Further investigation led him to discover that the extraction fan was emitting a frequency of 18.98 Hz, very close to the resonant frequency of the eye (given as 18 Hz in NASA Technical Report 19770013810[20]). This was why he saw a ghostly figure — it was an optical illusion caused by his eyeballs resonating. The room was exactly half a wavelength in length, and the desk was in the centre, thus causing a standing wave which was detected by the foil.[21]
Tandy investigated this phenomenon further and wrote a paper entitled The Ghost in the Machine[22]. He carried out a number of investigations at various sites believed to be haunted, including the basement of the Tourist Information Bureau next to Coventry Cathedral[23][24] and Edinburgh Castle
I posted this Wikipedia entry in another thread but it helps to enforce the point I was trying to make here as well.
