Sheriff Israel Calls for “More Power” to Snatch Up Citizens for Online Comments

by Scott Creighton

What have I been saying all along about “common sense gun control”? The following is from CNS News:

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on Thursday called for more first responders, more mental health treatment, and more power for police to involuntarily commit people who raise what he called “red flags.”

“The Baker Act in Florida allows law enforcement or medical professionals to confine a person involuntarily…but you have to have a reason, you have to be able to articulate that they’re a threat to themselves or a threat to someone else.

So what I’m asking our lawmakers to do is go back to places like Tallahassee or places like Washington, D.C. — give police the power — if they see something on social media, if they see graphic pictures of rifles and blood and gore and guns and bombs —  if they see something with horrific language — if they see a person talking about, I want to grow up to be a serial killer — we  need to have the power to take that person and bring them before mental health professionals at that particular time, involuntarily, and have them examined.

People are going to be rightfully so concerned about their rights, as am I. But what about the rights of these students? What about the rights of young kids who go to school with book bags and pencils, don’t they have the right to be protected by the United States government to the best of our ability? And that’s what we’ll be doing.”

Sheriff Israel said it’s important for people to say something if they see something or even if there’s “something in your gut.”

“If you know anybody right now, if you know anybody — you say, you  know what, this raises a red flag, I was thinking of calling (you). Don’t think about calling us, call us! Call the FBI, call the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, call the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Please don’t remain silent. Please let us know about it.”

Later, Sheriff Israel said there’s nothing law enforcement can do if someone legally owns a gun. “But we can certainly follow up,” he said.

“We can certainly go to visit him, whether he legally owns a gun or not, if we think that red flag goes up and that there’s something not right and we think that this person has a propensity to do such a horrific act, I think police all over this nation need to be empowered to take that person…and deliver him or her to a medical facility where they can be examined.”

Right now we live in a time where the MSM calls you “crazy” if you don’t believe Russia hacked our election. I just got a community guidelines strike and video removed for “bullying” because I dared ask questions about a video from this event. And of course, online trolls are resorting, once again, to their usual tactics:

“It’s so sad to see your accelerating mental deterioration. You used to be far more rational and often informative. Sadly, over the last 12 months you seem far more unstable and paranoid. Maybe you should confront and seek help for your issues.” troll

Folks who argue that the White Helmets aren’t what Hollywood and the press say they are, are also called “crazy”

Now we have this sheriff calling for more sweeping powers from state and federal legislators to be allowed to lock up people or toss them into some form of medical facility to be “evaluated” based entirely on social media statements.

This is extremely unsettling when you look at the types of statements made in this case supposedly by this person:

These images are what authorities like Sheriff Israel are saying are key indicators that Nikolas Cruz needed to be involuntarily detained and evaluated by psychological professionals.

Apparently it escapes the good sheriff’s attention that not one single one of these most threatening social media posts can positively be identified as Nikolas Cruz as they are all wearing masks.

In the one image that could arguably be attributed to Cruz, he’s holding a toy, not a real gun.

Imagine this country in the summer of 2016 if law enforcement had the authority to lock up people due to online comments made that someone somewhere deemed “a threat”

Of course, back then we were voting for either a man who bragged that he was so rich he could sexually assault any woman he met by grabbing them by their genitalia…

or a woman who made this statement in front of a camera before an interview:

This is what she was bragging about (notice the sickening reporters gloating about his death as well):

In White County, Tn. Sheriff Oddie Shoupe recently found himself in trouble because he was recorded saying “I love this shit, I thrive on it” regarding the killing of an unarmed man for not having a drivers license and refusing to pull over.

What would Oddie Shoupe consider “behavior that raises a red flag” I wonder? Would it be the same as your definition? Would it change over time? Will it change for Sheriff Israel in the run-up to 2020 election? Or his next reelection?

You see, that’s the problem with giving people this kind of absolute authority: you never know what they will do with it. What would the Ferguson cops have done with it or James Comey for that matter? Or the FBI back in the days when they were “investigating” MLK Jr. and the Black Panthers?

Then you have this:

New Study Links Conspiracy Theorists With A Mental Disorder Oct. 2017

Just for the record, questioning the Russia hacking story is considered a “conspiracy theory” as is bringing up the connections between al Qaeda, ISIS and the White Helmets. There are tons of them out there like these and all, by someone or another, are considered “conspiracy theories” because they reject the official stories told us by our complicit media.

Even thinking the media are on the take is considered a “conspiracy theory”

So now, Sheriff Israel is calling for not only the core part of “common sense” gun control that I have been warning about for years (stripping people of their second amendment rights due to a ruling from an arbitrary court based on social media footprints that may not even be yours) but it also seems he is going even further calling for your basic right to freedom be suspended as well based on the same flimsy criteria.

The results of this kind of legislation that Sheriff Israel is calling for will undoubtedly be massive self censorship by folks worried about being declared “unfit” due to their personal opinions and beliefs.

Yes, Google and Facebook and Youtube and Twitter are going to try to control the next election cycle by scrubbing away the wrong-think from the interwebs before the next election so we don’t have a repeat of what happened last year.

But this… this kind of action is even worse as it will make people censor themselves.

“The Baker Act in Florida allows law enforcement or medical professionals to confine a person involuntarily…but you have to have a reason, you have to be able to articulate that they’re a threat to themselves or a threat to someone else.

So what I’m asking our lawmakers to do is go back to places like Tallahassee or places like Washington, D.C. — give police the power — if they see something on social mediawe  need to have the power to take that person and bring them before mental health professionals at that particular time, involuntarily, and have them examined.” Sheriff Israel

That about says it all doesn’t it? He doesn’t want to have to show a reason… to “articulate” to a judge that someone is a threat. What he wants is the power to take a screenshot of a comment supposedly left by a citizen and lock them up in some kind of mental ward.

And if you think to yourself I just a “conspiracy theorist” for suggesting something like this can be very dangerous in the hands of the wrong people in a society… remember, there is precedence.

Political abuse of psychiatry is the misuse of psychiatry, including diagnosis, detention, and treatment, for the purposes of obstructing the human rights of individuals and/or groups in a society.[1][2]:491 In other words, abuse of psychiatry (including that for political purposes) is the deliberate action of having citizens psychiatrically diagnosed who need neither psychiatric restraint nor psychiatric treatment.[3] Psychiatrists have been involved in human rights abuses in states across the world when the definitions of mental disease were expanded to include political disobedience.[4]:6 As scholars have long argued, governmental and medical institutions code menaces to authority as mental diseases during political disturbances.[5]:14 Nowadays, in many countries, political prisoners are sometimes confined and abused in psychiatric hospitals.[6]:3[7]

By 1936, killing of the “physically and socially unfit” became accepted practice.[26] In Nazi Germany in the 1940s, the abuse of psychiatry was the abuse of the ‘duty to care’ in enormous scale: 300,000 individuals were sterilized and 77,000 killed in Germany alone and many thousands further afield, mainly in eastern Europe.[27] Psychiatrists were instrumental in establishing a system of identifying, notifying, transporting, and killing hundreds of thousands of “racially and cognitively compromised” persons and mentally ill in settings that ranged from centralized mental hospitals to jails and death camps.[28] Psychiatrists played a central and prominent role in sterilization and euthanasia constituting two categories of the crimes against humanity.[28] The taking of thousands of brains from euthanasia victims demonstrated the way medical research was connected to the psychiatric killings.[29] There were six psychiatric extermination centers: Bernburg, Brandenburg, Grafeneck, Hadamar, Hartheim, and Sonnenstein.[30][31] They played a crucial role in developments leading to the Holocaust.[30]

In 1971 detailed reports about the inmates of Soviet psychiatric hospitals who had been detained for political reasons began to reach the West.[33] These showed that the periodic use of incarceration in psychiatric institutions during the 1960s (see the biography of Vladimir Bukovsky) were now becoming a systematic way of dealing with dissent, political or religious.[7]

 

Drapetomania was a supposed mental illness described by American physician Samuel A. Cartwright in 1851 that caused black slaves to flee captivity.[38]:41 In addition to inventing drapetomania, Cartwright prescribed a remedy. His feeling was that with “proper medical advice, strictly followed, this troublesome practice that many Negroes have of running away can be almost entirely prevented.”[39] In the case of slaves “sulky and dissatisfied without cause”—a warning sign of imminent flight—Cartwright prescribed “whipping the devil out of them” as a “preventative measure”.[40][41][42] As a remedy for this disease, doctors also made running a physical impossibility by prescribing the removal of both big toes.[38]:42

In 2010, the book The Protest Psychosis: How Schizophrenia Became a Black Disease by psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl (who also has a Ph.D. in American studies) was published.[5] The book covers the history of the 1960s Ionia State Hospital located in Ionia, Michigan and now converted to a prison and focuses on exposing the trend of this hospital to diagnose African Americans with schizophrenia because of their civil rights ideas.[5] The book suggests that in part the sudden influx of such diagnoses could be traced to a change in wording in the DSM-II, which compared to the previous edition added “hostility” and “aggression” as signs of the disorder.[5]

Whistleblowers who part ranks with their organizations have had their mental stability questioned, such as, for example, NYPD veteran Adrian Schoolcraft who was coerced to falsify crime statistics in his department and then became a whistleblower. He was forcibly committed to a psychiatric hospital.[55]

 

You will notice that line “governmental and medical institutions code menaces to authority as mental diseases during political disturbances” might just have multiple political applications these days:

And of course:

Right now folks will argue that none of the questionable social media examples belonging to Nikolas Cruz are political in nature. I would argue differently. His statements about killing Antifa members for example. His racist comments toward Arabs are another arguably. How many of those can be attributed to him 100%? I don’t know. Maybe all. Maybe none.

But that’s not the point. You give a weapon to those who serve the political economic class of this country and they will use it and that is exactly what Sheriff Israel is asking for.

Things in this country are going to get worse before they get better. We might even be headed for a large scale war in the Middle East or on the Korean peninsula. What better time than now to establish all the tools they need to silence dissent before they have another summer of 2002 on their hands? Or another Battle for Seattle?

Take what you will from the events of Feb. 14th 2018. Planned or not the results are the same: the establishment are seeking to expand their power in a way that has been abused over the course of history by many states and it will be abused. Of that you can be certain.

Israel says yes it is a violation of your rights but then he justifies it by setting your rights against the rights of children you’ve never harmed or even intended to harm. That’s pre-crime. And when law enforcement starts talking like that, you can bet your bottom dollar they aren’t doing it for the children. They are using them as cover.

Too bad they didn’t check out Hillary’s social media footprint before letting her serve as Secretary of State. There would be a lot more children alive today if they had. But I guess, that really isn’t the point is it?

    “It’s so sad to see your accelerating mental deterioration. You used to be far more rational and often informative. Sadly, over the last 12 months you seem far more unstable and paranoid. Maybe you should confront and seek help for your issues.” troll”

    Almost word for word a comment I made months ago, but Scott deleted in embarrassment. Now here it is posted under a new poster’s name, but referenced as troll. Guess you shouldn’t delete posts that you don’t agree with, because now you’re exposed.

    It also should be noted that when I said that Scott was losing it and probably should look into therapy, I was referring to his outlandish theory that there were mercenaries shooting from helicopters at the Texas church shooting.

    He subsequently denied saying it and tried to whitewash it, but I pointed out in a comment as well as a video where he made that statement.

    That said, I stand by my statement. You are losing your grip man. What has been posted this last year is nothing short of desperate, AJ style sensationalism.

    I’ve been following this blog since 2008. I’ve even made a few donations (not much, but a ton of Scott’s work is totally worthy of it). Sadly, things have been different lately, Scott has been edgy, defiant, and outright malicious towards any dissent in his opinions. When called out, he used beat the hell out of anyone with facts and awesome arguments. Now, he has resorted to belittling, as hominems, and deleteing of posts he doesn’t agree with.

    With the recent spate of laughable grasping of straws at some of these events, it’s becoming clear that stress or old age or burn out is getting the best of him.

    Scott, I wish you the best man, I hope you get things straightened out. Don’t let the comments get to you. But more importantly, focus and the stuff your good at. When there isn’t any news worth clicking on, continue to churn out truth – even when it’s boring. Don’t sell out.

    • Danny, you seem confused…. take b-12.. it is good for mental deterioration…..

    • once again, you are a liar sir. your comments are still up on that thread and I never said helicopters were shooting into the church from above. I said there were people who wondered if that were the case and I explored the possibility of it (because a WITNESS said SHE THOUGHT someone was shooting through the ceiling. What I concluded, you lying shit, was someone was shooting outside the window UP INTO THE CHURCH and the bullets were hitting the ceiling making her THINK someone was above, you lying sack of shit.

      But of course, your lying ass comes here every now and again and makes comments about that and you go to my Youtube channel and repeat the same damn lie. It’s almost as if you get PAID to do this disrupting shit.

      you know it’s one thing to be a pathetic troll. to get paid money to run around and pretend you have an opinion on things that someone else tells you you have… that’s pathetic enough… but to have to make up lies about the people you want to attack in order to do it, that’s pedestrian man. get a grip. learn some stuff. try to be at least moderately tactful. you’re bad at this. just… bad. how much do they pay you? it’s WAAAAY too much. hope your supervisor keeps track of your “work”

      by the way… this latest persona of yours is now banned like the rest. show up again on Youtube and I’m kicking you there as well. people like you make me sick. sell out all the way down to your very opinions for a buck. kinda makes you a whore in a way, now doesn’t it?

      • @Scott: Please don’t spend your energy and waste your time on comments that contain not even an iota of a reference, let alone an argument, to the content of your analyses, but only idiotic, rancorous personal insults.
        I hasten to add (not to be accused of idiotophobia or incitement to hate against the oligophrenics in our midst), that I have nothing against imbeciles as long as they mean well and are polite. No such mitigating circumstances in the case of “Cater.”

      • Project much?

        Like I said, I’ve been coming here for ten years (1 as the adversary) and I have never once visited or even googled up info on your channel. I’ve stated before that I hate videos. Idk who It is, but it wouldn’t surprise me to find out I’m not the only one with complaints about the recent de-gradation of con-tent.

        That said, congrats on the new site – looks cool. Glad to be a part of this and to say I helped build (what used to be) a great site. Maybe we will see a new leaf turned.

        I’ll be around…

        • What is it you didn’t like about his article?….if you can’t see the sick agendas taking place by sick individuals who should be in prison then you are either….not paying attention…brainwashed…not too swift…or someone who is a sad sellout to evil….I think the whole gun control is the furthest thing from their minds..but they ll surely take it if they can get it…it has more to do w censorship because they know their evilness is being exposed…wake up to the psyops…because that is what they are.

    • Agreed. Been watching for a long while and he is getting worse.
