The crimes of the JBLM Force Protection Division go unpunished and the violations of our civil rights remain un-redressed. But how could we lose what should have been an un-losable case? From the mountains of evidence we presented, and even by the admission of Thomas R. Rudd, there can be no doubt that the JBLM Force Protection Division engaged in on-going illegal activity over many years (and is still engaged in illegal spying even today). It is however very difficult to fight the US Army's unlimited funds and numerous attorneys who were able to bury the truth under a never-ending series of motions to dismiss, suppress, and restrain. Simply put the government outspent us and buried the courts in so much confusing paperwork that the judges were unable to see the truth through the blinding flurry of motions.
Ok, so we lost this battle but the war is far from over. There can always be a new lawsuit filed against the JBLM Force Protection Division. Their crimes never stopped and this "win" before the court will only serve to embolden them. But things are different now for us as well. Over the years, we have gained friends and sources of information on JBLM. We receive much of the information published be the JBLM Force Protection Division through public records requests, and frequently from our friends on JBLM. We have copies of their email distribution lists and telephone rosters, and we have friends who are ready to report on their crimes.
So how can you help?
* Continue to build relationships and develop friends on JBLM.
* Find every piece of information that you can about the JBLM Force Protection Division so that it can be included in our own intelligence databases.
* Make detailed notes of every violation of law, regulation, and policy committed by any member of the JBLM Force Protection Division.
* Send whatever information you find to our intelligence officer (make it known that you have evidence of crimes being committed by Thomas Rudd and Daniel Vessels and we will contact you).
Soon we will have enough evidence to *Rise Up* and head back to court - this time for the win!
