NYC Police Frame Activist As Terrorist

NY Police Report Bomb to Frame Activist as Terrorist
"By the time the government finds out, you'll be in the hole thirty days"
9/11 Truther is Told By Officer Who Admits to False Accusation of Having a
Bomb

by Aaron Dykes & Alex Jones

Two persons identifying themselves as New York police officers interrupted a
9/11 Truth demonstration on a public sidewalk in front of the new WTC 7
Building to intimidate free speech, stating "Larry [Silverstein] doesn't
want to hear it," before accusing We Are Change founder Luke Rudkowski of
having a bomb and that his cell phone was "a gun."

The officer was apparently responding to refusals to stop filming their
faces as police attempted to impede free speech on behalf of Larry
Silverstein, making slanderous and knowingly false accusations including:

"I think he's got a bomb in his bag. Saw wires coming out. Think he's got a
bomb in there."

The police officer carried on during the encounter, saying "A terrorist
act-- I guess they go away for about 30 days."

Rudkowski tells him he is not a terrorist and that he is an American
citizen. The officer responds, "You're right. But by the time the government
figures it out, you'll be in the hole for 30 days."



The officer made the statements on camera with a notable smirk, and made no
attempt to distance himself or other witnesses from any physical danger (as
he would have done had he actually believed the activist had a bomb). The
officer went on to give away his criminal behavior, still on tape, despite
ongoing demands he and the other officer made that the cameras be shut off.

Alex Jones commented, "We have New York police on tape threatening to frame
someone for terrorism in a nonchalant fashion. How bad would it have gotten
if there were no cameras around? If they'll talk like this on camera, heaven
help us."

People are arrested every day for joking about bombs or making other bomb
references, even if it is clearly not meant to be serious.


This man identified himself as a police officer and accused Rudkowski of
'having a bomb' and 'being a terrorist' to silence his free speech for Larry
Silverstein. It is a serious federal and state crime to publicly state that
someone has a bomb and is a terrorist when not true, an extreme example of
yelling fire in a theatre, and needs to be prosecuted.

Such knowingly misleading and false information is not only malicious and
immoral, but has been made specifically illegal under the Anti-Hoax
Terrorism Act of 2003 and expanded for more stringency in 2004 and the
Terrorism Prevention Act of 2006, not to mention long-standing protections
against defamation and public endangerment. There are also many state and
local laws prohibiting such activity.


This man who identified himself as a police officer insisted that Rudkowski
and other members of WeAreChange.org must cease videotaping him.

Based on this video evidence alone, this officer should receive a prison
sentence and would be liable for civil damages as well-- not only to the
wronged demonstrator, but by law enforcement for a dangerous waste of
resources, as cited by Ted Kennedy's commentary regarding expansion:

"In addition, this measure expands civil liability to allow federal and
state governments to seek reimbursement from someone who knows that
emergency personnel are responding to a hoax and fails to inform authorities
that no such event has occurred."

Rudkowski was not only intimidated by the corrupt and criminal officer, but
his camera was confiscated. Shortly afterwards, police also confiscated his
cell phone, claiming that it was "a gun," according to Rudkowski.

The detective also snickered and "sang" tauntingly at Rudkowski, "Guess
who's going to jail? Guess who's going to jail?"

Luke was not arrested, but was detained for over an hour while police
deliberated over whether take further action.


This officer makes equal attempts to intimidate and ridicule Rudkowski.

Luke Rudkowski told the perpetrating policeman that his statements were
"slanderous," denying ridiculous accusations that he was a terrorist.

The officer again responded, "I saw wires. You look like a terrorist. I
don't know what a terrorist looks like. You may be a terrorist for all I
know. You've made threats - now I'm concerned."

It is obvious from the recorded video that the demonstration was peaceful,
no laws were broken and no threats were made. It is also clear that the
reason he approached the group did not regard suspicion of threatening
behavior, but to tell them that "Larry didn't want to hear it."

The levels of betrayal against the First Amendment of the Constitution are
so absurd and violate the basic tenants of original intent, they can only be
compared with gross violations by the enforcement officers of the police
state apparent, such as that with Abby Newman (as seen below, from 9/11: The
Road to Tyranny). Egregious misinterpretation and abuse perpetrated by the
very members of society supposedly in place to guarantee our freedoms.



Abby Newman was arrested for not showing ID in August 2000 and fell victim
to an illegal vehicle search in which police found items of subversive
literature, including a "pocket Constitution."

One officer asked the other "Is this legal?" (Case in point, where the very
society of freedom is violated by the system that regulates that society.)

But that has become all too common in the new American police state. A
Christian group in Philadelphia was arrested in 2004 and charged with counts
of criminal conspiracy, ethnic intimidation and riot for "praying, singing
and reading scripture during an annual 'gay pride' event. Of course, the
question here is not one of Christianity vs. homosexuality, but the criminal
prosecution of free speech. The eroding inherent right threatens the freedom
of Christians, homosexuals, pink-and-polka dotted people, and other groups
who were previously guaranteed protection of their voices - whether right or
wrong, embarrassing, hateful or supportive, blasphemous, sinful or true.

An attorney in Portland, Oregon was falsely arrested under anti-terrorism
laws shortly after the 2004 Madrid bombings.

Even in Canada, where limitations such as "reasonable" are pitted against
guarantees of free speech, people are granted 'fundamental freedoms' to
"thought, belief, opinion and expression."

Yet a protestor demonstrating outside the 2006 Bilderberg conference in
Ottawa, Don McCormick was kidnapped by an "Integrated National Security
Enforcement Team" who detained him, kicked him and psychologically tortured
him, including threats that they would "cut off his arms," all this after
being warned not to return to the protest the previous day.

Though McCormick was accused of "trying to blow up the Brookstreet Hotel,"
just as Rudkowski was accused of being a terrorist with a bomb, he was
guilty only of holding a picket sign and being critical of the secretive and
manipulative group.

Just as McCormick's free speech was violated, intimidated and labeled as
terroristic at the behest and for the benefit of the Bilderberg group,
Rudkowski's speech was threatened on behalf of Larry Silverstein, who
apparently wanted to silence discuss of 9/11 and WTC Building 7 through
bullying threats.

This is not Rudkowski's first encounter with harassment, intimidation and
denials to the rights of free speech. During a speech by Zbigniew
Brzezinski, security denied his free speech rights as a member of the press
and attempted to confiscate his video tape, despite the fact that he
declared his press position. Rudkowski serves as a free lance reporter for
GCN Live! Radio (nationally-syndicated), and websites such as Infowars.com
and PrisonPlanet.com, among others.



Recently the We Are Change group, which Rudkowski founded and remains
involved in, was harassed by police outside ABC Studios during a peaceful
demonstration of support for Rosie's public assertion of 9/11 Truth.

Free speech is no longer guaranteed under the de facto shadow government
that has hijacked the formerly legitimate government of this once great
nation. In fact, the threats are widespread - all the more so on the front
lines 'who dare call it treason.'

Luke Rudkowski can be contacted through WeAreChange.org. He has put out a
call for legal defense. Contact luke if you can provide legal aid or
identify any of the officers in this video. Stand up to tyranny and criminal
violations of basic, inherent rights.
