One would think after this many years of having an individual – myself for instance – under surveillance, there would be a hint of justification to bring to a federal judge, mentioning that, after all this time, here’s an allusion at least, of what we have so far… But let’s backtrack a bit… On the morning of August 8 of this year – starting at about 7:05 am, going on, from 32nd street and Schaffer Rd (in South East Grand Rapids, at the G.R./Kentword city border), aerial drones and a host of automobiles stalked me from one end of town to the other, unbeknownst to me, thinking that the planes which seemed to be following me were a fluke – just coincidence, with the area I was traveling, being so close in proximity to the (Gerald R. Ford) airport, that, well, it was of no consequence. The skies of this part of town usually are not without planes flying at least a dozen times or more per day. So as I traveled from work (just getting off from third shift), to the (Woodland) mall, to breakfast, then later (about 9:45 – 10:00 am), to the (Kentwood Public) Library, it was noticeable. Then, by the time I was leaving the library, it struck me that this plane had been circling overhead the whole time; from the time I left work to the mall, getting onto, than off of buses, to the library then leaving! And for what reason?

That’s when it struck me – that not only was I being stalked by air drones, but by all manner of automobiles! And while this has been going on for some years, I could somehow not ignore that this silliness had not yet subsided – now five years from the time I noticed that this foolishness had begun! Thinking that this is limited to just aerial drone and auto privacy violations is as equally foolish as thinking chirping, screeching birds and insects following me around in the dead of night is impossible. But there is no expense spared in this regard. At the library, the store, work of course and everywhere in between, is the length to which illegal, warrantless, pointless, INSANE and obviously useless spying is! Because in all these years, there has been nothing to justify the entire endeavor spying on me, just as there is no point for those engaged in it, that they should continue lying that they are not doing it for… reasons of… well, we’re still waiting for any such reasoning – if it can be considered or qualified as being a reasonably pursued law enforcement endeavor.

Is it the FBI? Is it local, county or state police? Without a doubt it is security contractor’s who operate with impunity far outside the realm of oversight.  With no accountability standards beyond those enumerated within the U.S. Constitution and/or Bill of Rights, who do, would or can they be answerable to?  And yet the fact remains that someone is stalking me, with a vindictive demeanor, as if having been wronged, defamed or disrespected in some sort of way.  My past blogs have had that sort of reaction on the childish, intellectually limited conservative minded reader, I must admit…

Why else would I have sudden problems at school, on the job, with the law and suffering general difficulties acquiring an avenue of accessing my Constitutionally GUARANTEED rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – as enjoyed by my Caucasian peers that I’ve shared classes with, housing, employment and life, generally? How and why could this have arisen at this point in my life, as no other time, immediately after entering into the Public Square of intense ideological, political and Civic, Cultural debate – via this particular blog?

Equally, and of greater consideration, how could I have become a target of local police attention, in the course of having committed no crimes EVER in life? This is no joke! Nor is this an exaggeration!  Something unexplainable has gone awry in my life that has caused the college (Grand Rapids Community College) I graduated at the top of my class (es – having graduated with Associates Degrees in both Business Administration AND Liberal Arts), to see fit to ban me from every area of their campus, while instilling the fear of God in its employees prohibiting them from discussing why!  …Even as I see them looking nervously about when I approach, as if they too are being watched…

Who has such power(s)? As an example of how far-reaching and menacing is the threat from secret, covert targeting of unsuspecting, innocent and completely law-abiding citizens has become, a supervisor on a very low-end, inconsequential job, while training a new employee, does so in a completely, hostile and contradictory fashion, attacks the trainee for carrying out procedures as trained to do and subsequently ordered to carry out, could be looked on as simple envy. But a series of confrontations which ensue, resulting in the trainee being eventually dismissed is an altogether more serious matter.

At an online sales company, a Customer Service agent excelling at their job at the outset, suddenly finds themself locked out of the call ‘que’ (the computerized phone system at a call center which distributes incoming calls to all call center operators, on the basis of first-in-line availability) and unable to keep up the prior 60 days sales totals that put them at the very top of all agents, because calls from earlier that very same shift were suddenly being routed, or recycled back through the que – around his que position, eventually resulting in their being handed off to those very same calls again – with the consequence being another dismissal, from yet another job…

A grocery clerk, doing his job, is suddenly set upon by unknown assailants and at a loss as how to respond to unknown assailants’ spraying a hazardous substance at/near/on him, begins video-taping himself at work, in the hopes of catching these individuals in the act. Once enough evidence is gathered, informs his superiors at his place of employment, as well as local (Grand Rapids) Police who immediately question the state of mind of the victim! Instead of even taking the time to look at the gathered store surveillance taped evidence and the private video records of the person assaulted by these mysterious individuals doing the spraying (of the hazardous chemicals), the Grand Rapids Police instead go to his place of residence, asking the landlord (of whom the victim had only just met when the rental agreement was signed!), inferring the victim may be of questionable mental capacity – never mind that the complaint of being assaulted was never investigated in any way, shape or form!

And so, lost was the opportunity to discover just who these individuals were – through motor vehicle records, facial recognition software (extensively used by law enforcement), military or police records, or even possibly having ties to the very police themselves –  now charged with doing an unbiased investigation, leaving the victim stranded and at the mercy of lawless and secret criminals. And for what purpose? How can an individual be covertly, secretly set upon in such ways that the police themselves appear to be in league with them?  How can such things happen – in America, no less?  If our past can be considered as prelude, we then have our answer…

Profiling, Poverty And The Take-down Of Activists Of Conscience

Later, when the clerk advised he had been stalked by shoppers around the store, after evading them initially and one (shopper) making a direct attempt to enter the clerks personal space while his back was turned, the clerk was again dismissed. Even after several more successive incidents and another police report filing, the clerk was eventually dismissed from his job! In this, the age of terror, continual, 24-hour surveillance and endless profiling of anyone fitting the description of suspicious, not one reported incident was ever investigate.  Or were they?  Did the police have all the evidence needed after all?  And did they know, at a professional and/or personal level, the identities of the perpetrators?

On his next job, another set of similar incidents would unfold, this time involving a co-worker – a Jonathan Meyers – who had just recently moved back to the Grand Rapids area, from Chicago. Both Jonathan and the clerk featured here, were both hired the very same day. As their work history unfolded, conflict arose between the two, with Jonathan assuming his racial entitlement posture, and proceeded to establish the pattern of telling the older, far more experienced and vastly more educated non-white co-worker, how to do the very simple, self-descriptive and mundane chores of being a grocery clerk! And as insulting as it was to have to lower himself to accept such a position, at the very barest of minimal pay and stature, it was all that was available at the time, for an educated, experienced (in this field as well), non-white American male.

Patiently, the non-white clerk would ignore Jonathan from the outset, only to soon realize these acts were purposefully antagonistic provocations. Jonathan was then told (by his non-white co-worker) that his intent was fully understood, that he was in fact, doing this at the behest of someone paying him to instigate conflict. But even with this revelation, nothing would deter Jonathan from continuing his hostile endeavor. It soon spilled out from the privacy between these two individuals, into the workplace, where their supervisor had no choice but to eventually intervene.

Being white, Jonathan of course, played the role of the frightened victim, fearful of the black rage that – according to his assumed suspicions, could explode upon him at any moment! The featured clerk (Jonathan’s non-white co-worker) tried to reassure his superiors that committing any workplace violence against Jonathan – or anyone else for that matter – was the furthest thing from his mind and in fact, was open to taking opposite days and hours from this obviously troubled, insecure little white man, if it meant keeping the peace.

Because of scheduling constraints, the two could not avoid eventually working together however and as the conflict continued, the non-white clerk was of course made the scapegoat and let go as a result, under the pretext that the post-Fourth of July holiday business reductions, was the reason for being dismissed. The hardship of being the voice of conscience once again would strike out yet again, thrusting yet another non-white male into further poverty and the suspicion of being suspect… of – name the crime – the nigger has got to be guilty!
