* BREAKING: (Mon.15 July 2019) Lakeland (Fla.) Police have been "call-blocking" phones for decades: We've now learned they've even been blocking 911 calls if they "get annoyed" at callers. DOCUMENTED: Damning Proof

By Gordon Wayne Watts, Editor-in-Chief, The Register, Monday, 15 July 2019
-- Readers of The Register know us for delivering stories you won't find elsewhere, and this certainly qualifies as "bizarre" even by the standards of the Lakeland Police Department, legendary for being in the news for infamous corruption. If you didn't get the note: Google: Lakeland Florida Police Department corruption *** Or Yahoo! them. Without any further ado, here are details and documented proof:

  • * THE PROOF * Nine (9) annotated videos documenting illegal call-blocking by LPD:
    ** YouTube ** Facebook #1 ** Facebook #2 ** Right-click to save: ** Local directory cache (MP4) ** Local directory cache (WMV) ** GoDaddy hosting cache (MP4) ** GoDaddy hosting cache (WMV) ** HostGator hosting cache (MP4) ** HostGatory hosting cache (WMV)
  • * THE Intimidation / DELAY * Readers might wonder why there was a delay in reporting this when it happened. The short answer is that when it initially happened, LPD sent a message that they would (falsely) accuse me of making "harassing phone calls," as some sort of justification for the illegal call-blocking. In that corrupt era, one was "guilty until proven innocent," and so, to prove 'false' this claim, I asked for a copy of the last call to LPD, immediately before I got blocked, in which I asked to speak to the chief, to report documented perjury in a report. The dispatcher insisted that I call I.A. (Internal Affairs), but I had already tried to report a public defender being illegally denied an exculpatory call-record, and they were very threatening, and I told the dispatcher that I did *not* feel comfortable calling them. But she insisted, and so, I called and left a message. Then, a few days later, when I tried to report a bus parked dangerously close to the roadside, my call was blocked (as documented by the phone company, numerous witnesses--see video--and even admitted to by LPD Detective Elisa Martin, in the presence of a witness, PSO Ryan Christopher Schuck). And, my attempts to get an audio copy (under Public Records laws) of my call, showing I was only following orders of the dispatcher to call I.A. (and not making "harassing calls") was illegally denied, and this went on for years of haggling back and forth to get those records, without which I would have no credibility were I to speak at, say, the city counsel to report these abuses. (Now, however, with LPD's documented LPD's documented refusal to comply with Public Records Law, in addition to the other fraud, and documented perjury that initiated this matter, I now feel I have sufficient 'credibility' to bring this matter to city elders, news media, and state & Federal agencies tasked with "policing the police.") The long story is documented below. **UPDATE: NEW LINKS JUST ADDED-- You may now, also, click this link to show why there was "no way" around a delay.

  • * Other Corruption * Besides illegally blocking my phone (which we just recently found out was also 911-blocked, a very dangerous Civil Liberties violation of the 1st amendment rights of redress), and then trying to cover it up and intimidate me into not reporting it, by refusing to release the call to the dispatcher who asked me to call I.A., there was (as one might expect) other corruption, which we were finally able to document and bring to readers. Now that LPD has done something so bizarre as to block peoples' 911 calls (as well as 'regular' non-emergency number calls to dispatch), perhaps these other 'forgotten' crimes will now come to light under the heat of these shocking new allegations:

    ** PERJURY in an official report: This is what started it all: After I was falsely arrested, perhaps to 'meet a quota', officers wrote an official report claiming that an LPD dispatcher told me to stay out of, or otherwise avoid, a certain area -- that there was police activity there. However, if you're going to be honest about it, you'll listen to the actual call, and compare it to the report -- and can come to your own conclusion as to whether these police made a false report, and then swore on oath (see the signature line of the report and who all signed it), thus making their lies official perjury under oath:
    ** YouTube ** Facebook #1 ** Facebook #2 ** Right-click to save: ** Local directory cache (MP4) ** Local directory cache (WMV) ** GoDaddy hosting cache (MP4) ** GoDaddy hosting cache (WMV) ** HostGator hosting cache (MP4) ** HostGatory hosting cache (WMV)

  • OTHER Corruption & Crimes by LPD:

    ** Illegally denying my rights to free press
    ** (GoDaddy cache) ** (HostGator cache)

    ** Even after repeated warning, documented here, the Lakeland Police Department continued its illegal pattern of harassment against this gentleman:
    ** (GoDaddy cache) ** (HostGator cache)

    ** Lastly I was even able to get my public defender to admit that my "trial by jury" rights were denied me, as documented by the case-law governing this. (But he was in private practice, when I contacted him, and if I'm not rich -- or "famous" -- then my rights 'go by the wayside.' -- Perhaps, this news item will make me 'famous' enough to get justice elsewhere.)
    ** (GoDaddy cache) ** (HostGator cache)

    Conclusion: Of course, "harassing phone calls" do NOT justify illegal call-blocking by the Lakeland Police Department (either to their non-emergency dispatch or their 911-centre). Indeed, even if I was making harassing phone calls (to the non-emergency number) or abusing their 911 call-centre (also illegal), they could press charges for either "harassing phone calls" or "911 abuse" (but they didn't--proving I was never at fault in this regard). So, their documented illegal blocking was egregious--and dangerous: Indeed, had I not had my cell phone to report that huge wreck in front of my old Lakeland residence, I would not have been able to call 911 and report it. Moreover, if they only blocked "non-emergency" calls (as Detective Elisa Martin told me when she and POS Schuck came out to meet me in the LPD lobby), that is still not only quite stupid (preventing citizens from reporting crimes until they become an emergency), but with a good lawyer, I might have a huge Federal Civil Rights case, in particular, both First Amendment Rights of Redress and also illegal punishment without proper Due Process. Speaking of which,... (Now hiring -- One tough lawyer. Contact: Gordon Watts.)
