    I saw video of the Danielson murder and it looked like several people were involved in setting it up. Unfortunately Reinoehl was killed so he couldn't be questioned about associates.

    LAPD chief calls out deadly crime surge



    JAN. 16, 2021
    5:51 PM

    The first two weeks of 2021 saw 59 shooting victims in Los Angeles compared with seven last year, L.A. Police Chief Michel Moore said in a tweet Saturday, calling attention to a deadly crime surge that has coincided with a devastating pandemic.

    Moore’s tweet provided an exact comparison with the prior year, but an earlier Twitter post, from the police headquarters account, reported 68 shootings and 24 homicides, with the total of shootings “being the highest year-to-date start in over 10 years.”

    The ongoing pandemic — which has kept many businesses closed and many people at home — may be one factor.

    Utah Man Charged in Federal Court Following Events at the United States Capitol


    WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Utah man was charged today in federal court in the District of Columbia in connection with the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.

    John Earle Sullivan was charged by complaint with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their official duties incident to and during the commission of civil disorder. The defendant was arrested today in Utah.

    The Complaint alleges that during the events at the U.S. Capitol, Sullivan, wearing a ballistics vest and gas mask, entered the U.S. Capitol through a window that had been broken out, pushing past U.S. Capitol Police once inside. The Complaint also alleges that Sullivan admits to filming and being depicted in video footage that shows him present, outside of the Speaker’s Lobby within the U.S. Capitol, at the shooting of a woman by a U.S. Capitol Police officer.

    The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

    The case is being prosecuted by the U.S Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Counterterrorism Section of the Department of Justice’s National Security Division. The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Salt Lake City and Washington Field Offices, the U.S. Capitol Police Department, and the Metropolitan Police Department. Valuable assistance was provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Utah.

    The ATF and FBI continue to urge the public to report suspected use of explosive devices, or violent, destructive acts associated with the recent unrest. Anyone with information can call 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477), email ATFTips@atf.gov or submit information anonymously via ReportIt.com.

    The FBI is looking for individuals who may have incited or promoted violence of any kind. Anyone with digital material or tips can call 1-800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324) or submit images or videos at fbi.gov/USCapitol.

    The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

    Facebook’s Sandberg deflected blame for Capitol riot, but new evidence shows how platform played role

    Fliers and hashtags promoting the pro-Trump rally circulated on Facebook and Instagram in the days and weeks beforehand

    Jan. 13, 2021 at 3:27 p.m. EST

    In the days leading up to last week’s march on the Capitol, supporters of President Trump promoted it extensively on Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram and used the services to organize bus trips to Washington. More than 100,000 users posted hashtags affiliated with the movement prompted by baseless claims of election fraud, including #StopTheSteal and #FightForTrump.

    The details, emerging from researchers who have combed the service in recent days, shed new light on how Facebook services were used to bring attention to and boost attendance at the rally, which turned violent when a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol while Congress was in session. The attack resulted in the death of a Capitol Police officer and four other people.

    Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg has sought to deflect blame, noting the role of smaller, right-leaning services such as Parler and Gab.

    At the beginning of the pandemic we took the action to allow only a very few people to join, mostly those with a medical, teaching, or journalist related field. We did this because we learned in the 2009 H1H1 pandemic that a large number of new posters renders the site unmanageable. We have a great team here and we can operate well as is.

    We have no new members in the last week. lol

    Trump backers seek online refuges after big tech backlash

    January 14, 2021


    snip

    Some conservative users had briefly found refuge on Parler, only to see the conservative alternative to Facebook go dark Monday when Amazon stopped providing hosting services. Parler sued Amazon over the ban; Amazon responded by arguing the platform’s “unwillingness” to remove posts threatens public safety.

    The crackdown prompted many conservative posters to consider more obscure alternative platforms such as Gab, which has marketed itself to Trump supporters. Gab CEO Andrew Torba, who describes himself as a “Christian entrepreneur and American populist," posted Wednesday that 1.7 million users signed up in the past four days.

    snip

    Other platforms attracting Trump supporters include Signal and Telegram, messaging services already used by individuals and groups with different ideologies around the world, as well as a growing list of lesser-known platforms, such as Rumble, MeWe and CloutHub.

    Telegram announced Wednesday that it had more than 500 million users, with more than 25 million signing up since Sunday.

    Several Trump social media stars banished from the mainstream platforms have launched their own channels on the service, gaining thousands of followers in just days. A channel that claims to be run by conservative attorney L. Lin Wood Jr., who littered Twitter with false claims about the election and called on Parler for Vice President Mike Pence to be killed, has gained more than 100,000 subscribers since its first message was posted Monday. QAnon and far-right channels also have seen their membership boosted by thousands this week.

    suite à une émission de "c dans l'air", de ce jour:

    https://www.france.tv/france-5/c-dans-l-air/

    il a été évoqué la possibilité que ce type de message ( les donnes du net ) où des personnes se vantent ou évoquent, que des histoires d'inceste pourraient être évoquées en droit ...

    Vu ce que je sais, et vu mon histoire, il y a des règles au dessus de toutes les lois :

    je ne peut imaginer pouvoir les modifier,

    j'espère juste que tous les humains les aient lues et comprises, car ces règles , en tout lieu, doivent être:

    I do not know the legal ramifications. I guess it was a private site since the posts were not public. Downloading the entire data base of a private site is probably some level of "stealing". It sounds by the article that you linked above there may have been some legal copyright issues with photos and videos. I also have no idea about this. Again, as to the content, there may be some legal problems with that. I never saw it so I can not comment. The server company has the database unless the owners of the site deleted it while they still had access. I suppose the US government could subpoena the server company to obtain the database. They could review it and determine if any laws were broken.

    @Sharon ,

    "this gigantic dataset contains 412 million files, including 150 million photos and over 1 million videos. This is the equivalent of 96-99% of all posts on the hard-right social network, according to various sources."

    To me, she's a white hacker. "she" is a guess, I have not been to see ... there is a legal problem, and this forum should give itself the right to deal with law ... Health, like the law, is politics in a way, but there is a way and a way to talk about it. In this place, there has always been respect. So can we talk about this legal problem, or not? I write this knowing that white hackers or not can access my computer. that's the real problem ...


    Pour moi , c'est une hacker blanc .

    " she" c'est une supposition, je n'ai pas été voir ...

    il y a un problème de droit , et ce forum devrait se donner le droit de traiter du droit ...

    La santé , comme le droit, c'est de la politique , d'une certaine manière , mais il y a façon et façon d'en parler .

    En ce lieu, il y a toujours eu le respect. Donc on peut parler de ce problème de droit, ou pas ?


    j'écris cela en sachant que les hackers blanc ou pas peuvent accéder à mon ordi .


    c'est cela le vrai problème ...

    After FluTrackers withdrew from Twitter in September some suggested Parler. I looked at the main page and saw that it was not public. That stopped me right there. A basic guiding principle of our site is to provide free and public information. I never went any further. I understand to register people had to provide a driver's license number. That is outrageous. I would have never joined even if it was public. Additionally, I understood Parler might be considered "right" and we are not political. At the time we joined Twitter it was not "liberal" or "left". Over the years it has devolved into a super leftist, raging, targeting site. It seems they have banned some terrible speech accounts while leaving many accounts that still engage in violent talk.

    With all the bannings and de-platforming by general use social media monopolies of tens of thousands of accounts and at least one competitor (Parler), have we just seen a domestic Digital Act of War?


    "Cybervandalism" or "Digital Act of War?" America's Muddled Approach to Cyber Incidents Will Not Deter More Crises
    • January 2017

    Authors:

    Dunlap, Charles J., Jr

    References (9)

    Abstract


    If experts say a "malicious [cyber] code"' has "similar effects" to a "physical bomb,"' and that code actually causes "a stunning breach of global internet stability," is it really accurate to call that event merely an instance of a "cyber attack"? Moreover, can you really expect to deter state and non-state actors from employing such code and similarly hostile cyber methodologies if all they think that they are risking is being labeled as a cyber-vandal subject only to law enforcement measures? Or might they act differently if it were made clear to them that such activity is considered an "armed attack"' against the United States and that they are in jeopardy of being on the receiving end of a forceful, law-of-war response by the most powerful military on the planet? Of course, if something really is just vandalism, the law enforcement paradigm, with its very limited response options, would suffice. But when malevolent cyber activity endangers the reliability of the internet in a world heavily dependent on a secure cyberspace, it is not merely vandalism. Rather, it is a national and international security threat that ought to be characterized and treated as such. Unfortunately, the United States' current approach is too inscrutable and even contradictory to send an effective deterrence message to potential cyber actors. This needs to change.

    Just making a note here for tracking the progression of political violence.....

    President Trump was impeached yesterday (1/13) by the House of Representatives. After the impeachment Trump asked for non-violence and calm among his supporters.

    Airbnb has cancelled all reservations in Washington D.C. in the Biden inauguration time period. At least one airline is temporarily suspending alcohol service on Washington D.C. bound flights.

    The FBI is seeking and arresting 100s of people across the country who participated in the Capital riot.

    I am not providing links because they are so highly politicized. The above facts are reported by many organizations.
