Know Your Rights ~ Fight Police Corruption

This was originally posted to the Indybay independent media site. I am re-posting it here at Portland Indymedia because we are too often the victims of the spying and other illegal activities of the military at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM).
This paper was written by JBLM Cop Watch in response to the corruption, malfeasance, and official misconduct of personnel within the Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) Police Department in Washington State. We believe that the on-going illegal activities of the JBLM Police Department pose a threat to the community in general, and force us to take steps to protect ourselves from their abusive conduct and constant infringement upon our civil rights and liberties. - Although this paper focuses on the abuses on one department, the information provided may be of use to anyone being targeted by a corrupt and abusive government agency.

Please download this paper and share it with anyone who might become a victim of a corrupt and abusive police department.  https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2020/10/09/18837411.php

JBLM Police - A Morass of Corruption 11.Oct.2020 11:01

JBLM MP

This is good information! More people should take time to understand and exercise their rights.

As a Military Police officer I can tell you that not all cops are bad, but there are certainly some very bad departments and leaders.

JBLM Police used to be a great place to work, but over the past couple of years it has become a morass of corruption and abuse.

The claims that JBLM is spying on American citizens, harassing and cyber-stalking anyone who disagrees with their misconduct, and retaliating against whoever dares stand up and report their illegal activities are all true. JBLM is monitoring off-post activity, collecting information on non-affiliated civilians, and conducting illegal surveillance of political groups in an effort to suppress "anti-DOD" comments and speech in the surrounding community. -- And YES, JBLM was directly involved in surveillance of the Portland protests!!!

Yes, they even manufacture false evidence, and knowing lie in their law enforcement reports as a way to target people who object to their official misconduct. I have personally reported false information in reports and was told to shut up about it, or risk losing my military career. The DES leadership is fully aware of this and has done nothing to correct the problems... and in too many cases support this illegal activity by JBLM law enforcement personnel.
