Body cameras record Athens police and public interactions

[quote][b]TeeWee[/b] - I can understand a citizen can have no expectation of privacy on the streets, sidewalk or public ways.  Officers may record event.   What is the ACCPD policy for recording audio and video on private property?  If a officer enters a private dwelling should recording be made without the permission of the owner?  Must the officer ask permission to record on private property?   What of an officer on foot walks by a window and glances inside, will the events inside the room be recorded?  How long will the recording be kept and who will have access to them?  People should remember they have the constitutional right to make no statements nor answer any questions.

Thank you for your two posts above.

Constitutional republic? What's that? I feel as if most AmeriKans do not understand any of what you wrote above.

UGA postgame report: Gurley sent message he 'wishes he could be there, go play hard'

“They’ve been threatening my life and my husband’s. They threatened to burn down my house, and I don’t even completely understand what this is all about,” she said. “One of the calls said that my husband was a snitch for ratting out some guy named Gurley. I don’t even know who that is.”

Georgia star tailback Gurley suspended due to alleged NCAA violation

I was walking by Butts-Mehre one afternoon, still daylight, and Richt was walking, saw me, and ran to his his Ford F150 truck with a scared look on his face, and hurriedly locked himself in and kept staring at me until I walked on past toward the baseball stadium.

I don't support Coach Richt.

As for Gurley, it seemed as if the whole offense was centered around him, and he didn't see to be a team player, and Richt didn't seem to want to focus on anything but Gurley.

But I do wish Gurley the best. Can he go to the NFL? Can he just say the hell with UGA and the NCAA? 2015 NFL draft stock maybe will not be influenced, so good for Gurley.

I agree with you mpd0.59 about financially rewarding the athletes.

Same-sex marriages begin in the South

[quote][b]Mr Charlie Told Me So[/b] - I will never understand political strategy. Now would be a great time for the GOP to back same sex marriage equality, they get a boost of good PR. What the worst that happens? That's right nothing. Are the extremist in the party all of a sudden gonna vote democrat? no. Are the extremist elements gonna stop donating? no, cause that is an effective vote for democrats. The very same reason why Democrats DIDN'T deal with same sex marriage for such a long time.
Given every opportunity why does the south always have to stick to stereotypes? We fought a war to keep slavery, we needed national guard intervention to end segregation and who knows what to allow a couple that loves each other to marry, Jeez lets get it together and suprise the nation once and a while and not come off as back country hicks!
[/quote]

I'm all for same sex marriages, or no marriages. It's just a government and religous form of control anyway.

But you are most incorrect to state that "we fought a war to keep slavery", if you are referring to the incorrectly named Civil War.

"Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late... It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision... The conqueror's policy is to divide the conquered into factions and stir up animosity among
them... It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up wegive up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties."

Walter E Williams - States' Rights and Nullification

"THE PROBLEMS THAT LED TO THE CIVIL WAR are the same problems
today—big, intrusive government. The reason we don’t face the specter
of another Civil War is because today’s Americans don’t have
yesteryear’s spirit of liberty and constitutional respect, and
political statesmanship is in short supply.

Actually, the war of 1861 was not a civil war. A civil war is a conflict between two or more factions trying to take over a government. In 1861, Confederate President Jefferson Davis was no more interested in taking over Washington than George Washington was interested in taking over England in 1776. Like Washington, Davis was seeking independence. Therefore, the war of 1861 should be called "The War Between the States" or the "War for Southern Independence." The more bitter southerner might call it the "War of Northern
Aggression."

I posted Ariel's arrest information at about 8:45 PM, before the Athens Banner had updated the story and rewrote it.

I have posted information that could help others who don't know about Yik Yak and swatting.

I have posted information to help others who might do something stupid and get arrested.

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - @CharlesB: You're really getting off on this story, aren't you?
[/quote]

Haha! Smile

Well, I've never heard of Yik Yak or "swatting". And from my research yesterday, high school and college students are getting arrested every week because they are making bomb threats or other threats, thinking that Yik Yak is anonymous.

I left the State Patrol before cell phones were rampant. Now everyone seems to have a smart phone and to me, using a smart phone while driving is worse than, and more rampant than the average 10-55.

And these drivers today seem to be always "tweeting" and posting on Facebook.

I agree with Dr. Keith Ablow's argument that these social media sites make for narcissists and I would agree that Yik Yak is a dangerous application.

And so when I started researching this, I found these articles, and thought that others would be interested.

And then when Ariel got arrested, there was nothing last night on the Athens Banner, so I thought that I would post links to his arrest.

And then when I found Ariel's picture on the Internet, reposting that Yik Yak gets him through his classes, I had to post Ariel's picture.

Furthermore, there are still ways to remain anonymous on the Internet, but using a traceable cell phone is not one of them, and I would argue that Yik Yak is not anonymous.

As for Ariel's arrest, I do not think that he should have spoken.

Other teenagers need to learn from this and realize that there is little anonymity on the Internet unless well versed in TOR.

"If the police come to your home, you do not have to let them in unless they have certain kinds of warrants. Ask the officer to slip the warrant under the door or hold it up to the window so you can inspect it. A search warrant allows police to enter the address listed on the warrant, but officers can only search the areas and for the items listed. An arrest warrant allows police to enter the home of the person listed on the warrant if they believe the person is inside."

"Do not resist arrest, even if you believe the arrest is unfair.
Say you wish to remain silent and ask for a lawyer immediately. Don't give any explanations or excuses. If you can't pay for a lawyer, you have the right to a free one. Don't say anything, sign anything or make any decisions without a lawyer. You have the right to make a local phone call. The police cannot listen if you call a lawyer.

University of Georgia Police Department

MEDIA RELEASE UPDATE

September 19, 2014

Contact:

Lt. Eric Dellinger

Chief Jimmy Williamson - University of Georgia Police Department

As everyone is aware, the University of Georgia Police Department received several reports related to a threat of violence directed towards the area of the Miller Learning Center on the University of Georgia Campus earlier this afternoon. From the time of the initial report, University of Georgia Police investigators have been working diligently to identify the individual responsible. Through the investigation of a number of leads and with the cooperation and assistance of personnel associated with the social media outlet involved and cellular service providers, the individual responsible for disseminating the threat has been identified as 19 year old University of Georgia student Ariel Omar Arias. In an interview with investigators, Arias admitted to disseminating the post in question and indicated that the incident was the result of an immature prank and that he had no motive to follow through with any acts of violence. Arrest warrants charging Arias with two felony counts of Terroristic Threats have been obtained and he has been transported to the Clarke County Jail. In addition to the criminal charges, Arias has also received an interim suspension from the University of Georgia.

The University of Georgia Police Department would again like to thank those individuals who promptly reported this incident as well as those in the community that assisted as the situation developed and the investigation progressed this afternoon. Their actions were extremely helpful and certainly played a large part in bringing this investigation to a successful conclusion.
