Serioulsy?  The boys laptop was never declared stolen yet they have 400 pics of him?  It's the same ol' song and dance.  They use some criminal action, in this case theft, as their logic, but then use it for what they initially intended...to spy on the kids at home without anyone's consent.  Next they'll be stating it was for the youths own good as they wanted to make sure their 'home lives' were okay.

Reminds me of the CSI New York I recently watched where they use the police surveillance street cameras to aide them in following a perp on the streets while being chased by the csi dudes.  Like all of you state...conditioning the masses through every means at their disposal.  "We need cameras on every corner of America"....and YOUR HOMES!

Good lord...rediculous...put some damn tape over over the webcam. I realize there are principles and it is a moral issue but if the school will not be held accountable then tape it over and tell them to find their own kiddy porn to watch.

Well of course the FBI cannot pursue legal action against a bona fide CIA program to profile children in their homes for the FINDERS program!

[Note from Ken Adachi: I first saw the report reproduced below in Ted Gunderson's spiral-bound expose titled The CIA's "Finders" which he had assembled somewehere in the late 1980's following his invovlvement with John DeCamp in investigating The Frnaklin Cover-Up story. There is no author attributed to this article on the voxfux web site, but the article may have appeared in The Spotlight, as Ted often ran his breaking stories through that publication.]

[ Introductory notes from Voxfux]

One by one, the dots get connected. The same names keep popping up and they are linked with the same activities over and over and over again until the pattern becomes so clear and undeniable, the circumstantial evidence becomes so overwhelming and the picture emerges that is so frightening that it is hard to believe that it is true. The picture that has emerged is that indeed the major institutions of the United States of America, the CIA, the FBI and the many of our governmental and media institutions are involved in child sexual slavery and ritualistic abuse. The same names keep surfacing in relation to the same subjects over and over again. The CIA, child sexual abuse, the Catholic church, George Bush Sr., The secret societies of the Scull and Bones, the Freemasons, The Knights of Malta and others and on and on and on.

If you think this sounds like some "looney conspiracy theory," congratulations, that's exactly how they programmed you to think, you have been brainwashed - your mind has been successfully obliterated. For, the evidence presented on the voxfux.com website is so overwhelming and so indisputable that to ignore it any longer or write it off as too outrageous to be true, is to be a low immoral retarded coward. If you decide to continue reading, prepare yourself to connect all the dots of this evil incarnate. Read on. Your life and the safety of you family depends on it.

On February 7th of 1987, the Washington Post ran an interesting story that did not at first seem to have any particularly national significance. The article concerned a case of possible kidnapping and child abuse, and material discovered in the Washington area that they say points to a 1960s style commune called the Finders, described in a court document as a "cult" that conducted "brainwashing" and used children "in rituals." DC police who searched the Northeast Washington warehouse linked to the group removed large plastic bags filled with color slides, photographs and photographic contact sheets. Some showed naked children involved in what appeared to be "cult rituals," bloodletting ceremonies of animals and one photograph of a child in chains.

Customs officials said their links to the DC area led authorities into a far-reaching investigation that includes The Finders -- a group of about 40 people that court documents allege is led by a man named Marion Pettie -- and their various homes, including the duplex apartment in Glover Park, the Northeast Washington warehouse and a 90 acre farm in rural Madison County, VA.

It was the US News and World Report that would ultimately provide the follow-up to the Finders story, noting that there is a certain Customs Service memorandum that was written at the time of the original investigation, written by Ramon J. Martinez, Special Agent, United States Customs Service, describing two adult white males and six minor children ages 7 years to 2 years. The adult males were Michael Houlihan and Douglas Ammerman, both of Washington, DC who had been arrested the previous day on charges of child abuse.The children were covered with insect bites, were very dirty, most of the children were not wearing underpants and all of the children had not been bathed in many days. The men were somewhat evasive under questioning and stated only that they were the children's teachers and were en route to Mexico to establish a school for brilliant children. The children were unaware of the functions of telephones, television and toilets, and stated that they were not allowed to live indoors and were only given food as a reward.

A Detective Bradley had initiated an investigation on the two addresses provided by the Tallahassee Police Department during December of 1986. An informant had given him information regarding the cult, known as the "Finders," operating various businesses out of a warehouse located at 1307 4th Street, N.E., and were supposed to be housing children at 3918/3920 W St., N.W.

The information was specific in describing "blood rituals" and sexual orgies involving children, and an as yet unsolved murder in which the Finders might be involved.

Cursory examination of documents revealed detailed instructions for optaining children for unspecified purposes. The instructions included the impregnation of female members of the community, purchasing children, trading and kidnapping. There were telex messages using MCI account numbers between a computer terminal believed to be in the same room, and others located across the country and in foreign locations.

There were pictures of nude children and adult Finders, as well as evidence of high-tech money transfers. There was a file called "Pentagon Break-in," and references to activities in Moscow, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, North Vietnam, North Korea, Africa, London, Germany, "Europe" and the Bahamas.

There was also a file labeled "Palestinian."

One such telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy there. Other documents identified interests in high-tech transfers to the United Kingdom, numerous properties under the control of the Finders, a keen interest in terrorism, explosives, and the evasion of law enforcement.

There was also a set of instructions that appeared to broadcast via computer an advisory to the participants to keep the children moving through different jurisdictions and instructions on how to avoid police detection.

A photo album contained a series of photos of adults and children dressed in white sheets participating in a blood ritual. The ritual centered around the execution of at least two goats. The photos portrayed the execution, disembowelment, skinning and dismemberment of the goats at the hands of the children. This included the removal of the testes of a male goat, the discovery of a female goat's "womb" and the "baby goats" inside the womb, and the presentation of the goat's head to one of the children.

There was also a large amount of data collected on various child care organizations.

The warehouse contained a large library, two kitchens, a sauna, hot tub and a 'video room.' The video room seemed to be set up as an indoctrination center. The organization had the ability to produce its own videos. There appeared to be training areas for the children and what appeared to be an altar set up in a residential area of the warehouse. Many jars of urine and feces were located in this area.

Group leader Marion Pettie spoke in an interview in Steamshovel Press in 1998, noting that in World War II he kept house maintly to intelligence people in Washington and OSS people passing through.

Official US Customs investigation reports which have been completely authenticated by the investigating officers who wrote them and by a well respected investigator who personally knows these Customs officials are irrefutable evidence that:

1. A case of obvious child neglect/abuse involving child pedophile sexual abuse/child pornography/Satanic cult ritualistic abuse wherein the perpetrators were caught directly in the act by law enforcement, arrested on the basis of irrefutable evidence at the scene, and faced serious charges which typically bring sentences of decades in prison.

2. Search warrants were obtained for the "Finders" cult office in Washington, DC and a complete search was enacted by law enforcement which provided irrefutable pictures, movies and documents of such abuse/neglect evidence and access to the confidential arrest reports on the "Finders" cult from the arrests in Tallahassee which occurred only a day earlier (suggesting very high level connections to US intelligence in and of itself.)

3. All investigation of the "Finders" cult by the FBI, US Customs and local law enforcement was ordered stopped by the US Justice Department on the grounds of "national security" and the matter of the "Finders" cult was turned over to the Central Intelligence Agency as an "internal security matter," since the "Finders" is and has been a domestic and international covert operation of the Central Intelligence Agency.

4. Any and all investigation of the "Finders" was immediately stopped, all evidence was supressed and denied, and the abused children were released back to the adult perpetrators who had been arrested "in the act" and the CIA resumed its ongoing covert operation of the "Finders" cult which is used to procure and produce. The story of the Finders cult is the story of the development of child/assets to be used to entrap politicians, diplomats; corporate and law enforcement officials; to sell child/victims to wealthy perverts to raise money for covert operations, to train some of the child/victims to be professional operatives and assassins of a totally cold, multiple personality, mind control nature.

To date only one media outlet has dared publish anything about this (US News).

In the last few years there have been more "smoking guns" proving that US intelligence agencies traffic in children, sell them and abuse them. Some of these covert operations have been tied to long term and massive importation, and distribution of narcotics into the US by the same iintelligence agencies.

BELOW IS AN ARCHIVE OF EXISTING RECORDS INVOLVING THIS CHILLING STORY OF CIA INVOLVEMENT IN CHILD RITUAL SEXUAL ABUSE.

I am presenting this U.S. Custom Service Document (1) and news article (2) for the purpose of discussion of Satanic ritualistic abuse of children;that an organized, computer-literate, terrorist group, "The Finders", was found in participation of the Satanic ritualistic abuse of children (1) and that, with the coming of Millennium Prophecy, more groups may form with Satanism used for the empowerment of their agenda; that "The Finders", were found to be group involved in "competitor intelligence for a variety of mostly foreign clients" (2) and were headquartered in Washington DC close to governmental facilities raising the legitimate question of connections between Satanic ritualistic abuse of children and government agencies; that evidence was found for international connections in "London, Germany, the Bahamas, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Africa, Costa Rica, and "Europe." There was also a file identified as "Palestinian." (1) This Customs report raises the legitimate question of international connections for Satanic ritualistic abuse of children.

In a recent letter to Congresswoman Tauscher I wrote: 'In the latter regard, I think the populations at risk of targetting by Satanic Cults may be younger teens and preteens who are Internet proficient. In an article on Internet pedophiles: "pedophiles are using digital cameras to televise live, interactive molestations in cyberspace" ("Cops Go Undercover Online to Nab Internet Pedophiles", SF Chronicle, December 7, 1998; pg A21). It was of further curiosity to me that the Internet child molestations cases in the later article did not mention a possible link to Satanic Cults opening up the question of whether or not Satanic Cults 'recruit' children off the Internet for Satanic Rituals.

I would say that, on the behalf of the children and adults who have been subjected to Satanic ritualistic abuse that these acts are not be tolerated; that parents need to feel that their children are safe from this threat; and that any hint of it should be rapidly and throughly investigated as hate crimes in thought and deed.

Report of Investigation

To: Resident Agent in Charge Date: 021287 Subject: Finders

This office was contacted by the Tallahassee Police Department on February 5, 1987, who requested assistance in attempting to identify two adult males and six minor children, all taken into custody the previous day. The men, arrested and charged with multiple counts of child abuse, were being very evasive with police in the questions being asked of them pursuant the children and their condition.

This agent contacted SS/A, Bob Harrold, RAC/Reston, Virginia, and requested telephone numbers and names of police persons in area police departments in an attempt to follow-up on two leads which were a Virginia license number and that the children had commented about living in a Washington, D.C., commune.

Subsequently, this office received a telephone call from the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department inquiring about the men and children. This office put the MPD and the TPD in contact with each other.

Walter F. Kreitlow II Special Agent

Fredric D. Maiduk Resident Agent in Charge

Office of Enforcement 227 N. Bronough St. Rm 6045 Tallahassee, FL 32301

DETAILS OF INVESTIGATION:

On Thursday, February 5, 1987, this office was contacted via telephone by Sergeant JoAnn VanMETER of the Tallahassee Police Department, Juvenile Division. Sgt. VanMETER requested assistance in identifying two adult males and six minor children ages 7 years to 2 years.

The adult males were tentatively identified by TPD as Michael HOULIHAN and Douglas AMMERMAN, both of Washington, D.C. who were arrested the previous day on charges of child abuse.

The police had received an anonymous telephone call relative two well-dressed white men wearing suits and ties in Myers Park, (Tallahassee), apparently watching six dirty and unkempt children in the playground area. HOULIHAN and AMMERMAN were near a 1980 Blue Dodge van bearing Virginia license number XHW-557, the inside of which was later described as foul-smelling filled with maps, books, letters, with a mattress situated to the rear of the van which appeared as if it were used as a bed, and the overall appearance of the van gave the impression that all eight persons were living in it.

The children were covered with insect bites, were very dirty, most of the children were not wearing underwear and all of the children had not been bathed in many days.

The men were arrested and charged with multiple counts of child abuse and lodged in the Leon County Jail. Once in custody the men were somewhat evasive in their answers to the police regarding the children and stated only that they both were the children's teachers and that all were enroute to Mexico to establish a school for brilliant children.

The children tentatively were identified as Mary (deleted), white female, age 7; (deleted) LIVINGSTON, white male, age 6; (deleted) FRANKLIN, white male, age 4; (deleted) EVANS, white female, age 3; B.B., white male, age 2; and that they lived in tents in a commune in the Washington, D.C., area and were going to Mexico to go to a school for smart kids.

This office contacted the Office of the RAC/DC and spoke with SS/A Bob Harrold. This agent requested telephone numbers and names of police persons in area departments that might be aware of said activities described by the children and to follow-up on leads which were the Virginia license number and a check on the men's names with local law enforcement.

A short time later this office was contacted by Detective, Jim Bradley of the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department. Bradley indicated that the case here in Tallahassee appeared to be strongly related to a case he was currently working in the Washington, D.C. area.

He stated that the actions of the two men in custody in Tallahassee relative the children just might give his case enough probable cause for search warrants to search premises occupied by a cult group called Finders.

This agent directed Bradley to telephone TPD and discuss with police directly any activities forthcoming relative the instant case. At this time it was determined that there was no Customs violations found to exist and therefore, this case is being closed pending receipt of additional information.

IDENTIFYING DATA/TECS-FIN QUERIES: ______________

To: Resident Agent in Charge Date: 02/07/87 From: Special Agent

Subject: Customs cooperation/interest in Tallahassee/Washington MPD child abuse investigation.

On Thursday, 2/5/87, the duty agent, SS/A Bob Harrold, received a call from SS/A Walter Krietlow, USCS, Tallahassee, Florida. SS/A Kreitlow was seeking assistance in contacting an appropriate local police agency to coordinate a child abuse investigation in with the Tallahassee Police Department. SS/A Krietlow further requested assistance in checking some names, addresses and a vehicle through the Customs Child Pornography Unit data base, and stated there was some suspicion of the subjects being involved in supplying children for the production of child pornography. Further, he was informed by the Tallahassee Police Department that the children may have been enroute to Mexico from the Washington, D.C. area. The possibility of Customs interest in the investigation due to possible violations of the Child Protection Act of 1984, and the alleged nexus with the U.S./Mexican Border were discussed and agreed upon. SS/A Krietlow related the following background information. SS/A Krietlow was contacted by the Tallahassee Police Department for assistance in identifying six children and two adults taken into custody in the Tallahassee area. U.S. Customs was contacted because the police officers involved suspected the adults of being involved in child pornography and knew the Customs Service to have a network of child pornography investigators, and of the existence of the Child Pornography and Protection Unit. SS/A Krietlow stated the two adults were well dressed white males. They had custody of six white children (boys and girls), ages three to six years. The children were observed to be poorly dressed, bruised, dirty, and behaving like wild animals in a public park in Tallahassee. The police were notified by a concerned citizen and all eight persons were taken into custody. The subjects were living out of a white 1979 Dodge van, Virginia license no. XHW 557. Upon being taken into custody, the adult white males refused to cooperate, one of whom produced a "business" card with a name on one side and a statement on the other. The statement indicated that the bearer knew his constitutional rights to remain silent and that he intended to do so. Upon interviewing the children, the police officers found that they could not adequately identify themselves or their custodians. Further, they stated that they were enroute to Mexico to attend a school for "smart kids." SS/A Kreitlow was further advised the children were unaware of the function and purpose of telephones, televisions and toilets, and that the children had stated they were not allowed to live indoors and were only given food as a reward.

After receiving the request from Tallahassee, SS/A Harrold contacted me while I was on official business at Customs Headquarters. He requested that I conduct computer checks on the Customs Child Pornography Unit data base. The checks were to be conducted on the names, addresses, and a vehicle provided by SS/A Krietlow. After conducting the computer checks, I made direct contact with SS/A Krietlow to inform him that all the checks were negative. At that time I was informed by SS/A Krietlow that the Tallahassee police had discovered large quantities of records, to include computer discs and a U.S. passport in the van. From some of these records the police had obtained tentative identification of the two adults, and partial identification of the children. Furthermore, the two Washington, D.C. addresses had been discovered through these documents, one of which was verified through the vehicle registration. I advised SS/A Krietlow I was leaving Headquarters and he would be receiving a response to the remainder of his request from SS/A Harrold. I then left as stated and proceeded to conduct other business in the District.

A short time later, at approximately 11:30 a.m., SS/A Harrold contacted me by radio, and advised me that a Detective Jim Bradley of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) was interested in the information provided by SS/A Krietlow, was in contact with Tallahassee, and would very probably be conducting search warrants in the area later in the day. He also informed me that U.S. Customs was invited to participate due to the continuing possibility of violations of law enforced by the Customs Service. As I was already in Washington, I terminated my other business and proceeded to make contact with Detective Bradley, Intelligence Division, MPD.

Upon contacting Detective Bradley, I learned that he had initiated an investigation on the two addresses provided by the Tallahassee Police Dept. during December of 1986. An informant had given him information regarding a cult, known as the "Finders" operating various businesses out of a warehouse located at 1307 4th St., N.E., and were supposed to be housing children at 3918/3920 W St., N.W. The information was specific in describing "blood rituals" and sexual orgies involving children, and an as yet unsolved murder in which the Finders may be involved. With the information provided by the informant, Detective Bradley was able to match some of the children in Tallahassee with names of children known alleged to be in the custody of the Finders. Furthermore, Bradley was able to match the tentative ID of the adults with known members of the Finders. I stood by while Bradley consulted with AUSA Harry Benner and obtained search warrants for the two premises. I advised acting RAC SS/A Tim Halloran of my intention to accompany MPD on the execution of the warrants, received his permission, and was joined by SS/A Harrold. SS/A Harrold accompanied the team which went to 1307 4th St, and I went to 3918/20 W St.

During the execution of the warrant at 3918/20 W St., I was able to observe and access the entire building. I saw large quantities of children's clothing and toys. The clothing consisting of diapers and clothes in the toddler to pre-school range. No children were found on the premises. There were several subjects on the premises. Only one was deemed to be connected with the Finders. The rest were renting living space from this individual. He was identified as Stuart Miles SILVERSTONE, DOB/061941, U.S. Passport No. (deleted). SILVERSTONE was located in a room equipped with several computers, printers, and numerous documents. Cursory examination of the documents revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for unspecified purposes. The instructions included the impregnation of female members of the community known as the Finders, purchasing children, trading, and kidnapping. There were telex messages using MCI account numbers between a computer terminal believed to be located in the same room, and others located across the country and in foreign locations. One such telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy there. Another telex expressed interest in "bank secrecy" situations. Other documents identified interests in high-tech transfers to the United Kingdom, numerous properties under the control of the Finders, a keen interest in terrorism, explosives, and the evasion of law enforcement. Also found in the "computer room" was a detailed summary of the events surrounding the arrest and taking into custody of the two adults and six children in Tallahassee the previous night. There were also a set of instructions which appeared to be broadcast via a computer network which advised the participants to move "the children" and keep them moving through different jurisdictions, and instructions on how to avoid police attention.

One of the residents was identified as a Chinese National. Due to the telex discovered referencing the Chinese Embassy in Hong Kong, he was fully identified for future reference: WANG/Gengxin, DOB/092747, POB/Tianjin, People's Republic of China Passport No. (deleted), entered the U.S. on January 22, 1987, admitted until December 31, 1987. He is in the U.S. as a graduate student in the Anatomy Department of Georgetown University. His Visa was issued on November 10, 1986, in London, England, number 00143.

During the course of the evening, I contacted Sector 4 to initiate a TECS check on SILVERSTONE, and initiate an archives check on him for the last four years. I also contacted SS/A Halloran to keep him advised of the proceedings and asked for and received permission to contact SS/A John Sullivan of the CPPU to query some names through the CPPU data base. SS/A Halloran told me he would call Southeast Region Headquarters to keep them posted on the proceedings as well. I later contacted SS/A Sullivan for the stated purpose, and in the discussion that followed I gave him some background on the purpose of the request. I advised him that the information was not for dissemination at Headquarters, that Region was being notified, and that Region would probably contact Headquarters later if deemed necessary. SS/A Sullivan assured me that the information would go no further until official notification was made by Region. No positive matches were obtained from the CPPU data base. I was later joined at the W Street address by SS/A Harrold. SS/A Harrold advised me that there were extremely large quantities of documents and computer equipment at the warehouse, and that MPD was posting officers inside the building there and sealing the building until morning, in which a second warrant for that premises would be obtained and executed. SS/A Harrold also advised me that the news media had been notified and had been waiting for the execution of the warrant at the 4th Street address. Detective Bradley later stated that the MPD Public Information Officer had been contacted by a Tallahassee reporter. When it became apparent that the PIO had no information on the search warrants, the reporter contacted local media representatives and a check of public records containing the affidavits for the search warrants disclosed the locations and purpose of the warrants. Detective Bradley surmised that someone on the Tallahassee Police Department was the original source of the information for the press. I advised SS/A Halloran of the involvement of the press, and he stated that he would, in turn, relay the information to Region. SS/A Harrold and I assisted in the transport of the evidence seized pursuant to the warrant and cleared MPD after the press left the area.

On Friday, 2/6/87, I met Detective Bradley at the warehouse on 4th Street, N.E. I duly advised my acting group supervisor, SS/A Don Bludworth. I was again granted unlimited access to the premises. I was able to observe numerous documents which described explicit sexual conduct between the members of the community known as Finders. I also saw a large collection of photographs of unidentified persons. Some of the photographs were nudes, believed to be of members of the Finders. There were numerous photos of children, some nude, at least one of which was a photo of a child "on display" and appearing to accent the child's genitals. I was only able to examine a very small amount of the photos at this time. However, one of the officers presented me with a photo album for my review. The album contained a series of photos of adults and children dressed in white sheets participating in a "blood ritual." The ritual centered around the execution of at least two goats. The photos portrayed the execution, disembowelment, skinning and dismemberment of the goats at the hands of the children. This included the removal of the testes of a male goat, the discovery of a female goat's "womb" and the "baby goats" inside the womb, and the presentation of a goat's head to one of the children.

Further inspection of the premises disclosed numerous files relating to activities of the organization in different parts of the world. Locations I observed are as follows: London, Germany, the Bahamas, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Africa, Costa Rica, and "Europe." There was also a file identified as "Palestinian." Other files were identified by member name or "project" name. The projects appearing to be operated for commercial purposes under front names for the Finders. There was one file entitled "Pentagon Break-In," and others referring to members operating in foreign countries. Not observed by me but related by an MPD officer were intelligence files on private families not related to the Finders. The process undertaken appears to be have been a systematic response to local newspaper advertisements for babysitters, tutors, etc. A member of the Finders would respond and gather as much information as possible about the habits, identity, occupation, etc., of the family. The use to which this information was to be put is still unknown. There was also a large amount of data collected on various child care organizations.

The warehouse contained a large library, two kitchens, a sauna, hot-tub, and a "video room." The video room seemed to be set up as an indoctrination center. It also appeared that that the organization had the capability to produce its own videos. There were what appeared to be training areas for children and what appeared to be an altar set up in a residential area of the warehouse. Many jars of urine and feces were located in this area.

I should also mention that both premises were equipped with satellite dish antennas.

I discussed the course of action to be taken by MPD with Detective Bradley. He stated that he was only interested in making the child abuse case(s). I was assured that all of the evidence would be available to U.S. Customs in furtherance of any investigative/criminal action pursued. MPD personnel were to begin around the clock review and sorting of the evidence until completed. Customs will have access after this is accomplished. This will include several U.S. Passports discovered during the search.

Upon leaving the 4th Street premises, I encountered a news media representative and was asked the reason behind U.S. Customs involvement in the investigation. I advised the reporter that I could not discuss anything and I referred her to the PAO/DC. I left immediately thereafter.

There is no further information available at this time. It will take three to five days for all the information to be sorted, reviewed and logged by the MPD. I will maintain contact with Detective Bradley until the evidence is again accessible.

Respectfully submitted,

Ramon J. Martinez Special Agent, USCS

To: Resident Agent in Charge Date: 04/13/87

On Thursday, February 5, 1987, Senior Special Agent Harrold and I assisted the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) with two search warrants involving the possible sexual exploitation of children. During the course of the search warrants, numerous documents were discovered which appeared to be concerned with international trafficking in children, high tech transfer to the United Kingdom, and international transfer of currency.

DETAILS OF INVESTIGATION:

On March 31, 1987, I contacted Detective Jim Bradley of the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). I was to meet with Detective Bradley to review the documents seized pursuant to two search warrants executed in January, 1987. The meeting was to take place on April 2 or 3, 1987.

On April 2, 1987, I arrived at MPD at approximately 9:00 a.m. Detective Bradley was not available. I spoke to a third party who was willing to discuss the case with me on a strictly "off the record" basis.

I was advised that all the passport data had been turned over to the State Department for their investigation. The State Department in turn, advised the MPD that all travel and use of the passports by the holders of the passports was within the law and no action would be taken. This included travel to Moscow, North Korea, and North Vietnam from the late 1950s to mid 1970s.

The individual further advised me of circumstances which indicated that the investigation into the activity of the Finders had become a CIA internal matter. The MPD report has been classified SECRET and was not available for review. I was advised that the FBI had withdrawn from the investigation several weeks prior and that the FBI Foreign Counter Intelligence Division had directed MPD not to advise the FBI Washington Field Office of anything that had transpired.

No further information will be available. No further action will be taken.

ACTION TO BE TAKEN BY LESD/TECS:

No action to be taken on the basis of this report.

***(2) *U.S. News & World Report*, Dec. 27, 1993/Jan 3. 1994

Through a glass, very darkly Cops, spies and a very odd investigation

The case is almost seven years old now, but matters surrounding a mysterious group known as the Finders keep growing curiouser and curiouser.

In early February 1987, an anonymous tipster in Tallahasse, Fla, made a phone call to police. Two "well dressed men" seemed to be "supervising" six dishevelled and hungry children in a local park, the caller said. The cops went after the case like bloodhounds, at least at first. The two men were identified as members of the Finders. They were charged with child abuse in Florida. In Washington, D.C. police and U.S. Customs Service agents raided a duplex apartment building and a warehouse connected to the group.

Among the evidence seized - detailed instructions on obtaining children for unknown purposes and several photographs of nude children.

According to a Customs Service memorandum obtained by U.S. News, one photo appeared "to accent the child's genitals". The more the police learned about the Finders, the more bizarre they seemed: There were suggestions of child abuse, Satanism, dealing in pornography and ritualistic animal slaughter.

None of the allegations was ever proved, however. The child abuse charges against the two men in Tallahassee were dropped; all six of the children were eventually returned to their mothers, though in the case of two, conditions were attached by a court. In Washington, D.C. police began backing away from the Finders investigation. The groups practices, the police said, were eccentric - not illegal.

QUESTIONS. Today, things appear to have changed yet again. The Justice Department has begun a new investigation into the Finders and into the group's activities. It is also reviewing the 1987 investigation into the group to determine whether that probe was closed improperly. Justice officials will not elaborate, except to say the investigation is "ongoing" and that it involves "unresolved matters" in relation to the Finders.

One of the unresolved questions involves allegations that the Finders are somehow linked to the Central Intelligence Agency. Custom Service documents reveal that in 1987, when Customs agents sought to examine the evidence gathered by Washington, D.C. police, they were told that the Finders investigation "had become an internal matter."

The police report on the case had been classified secret. Even now, Tallahassee police complain about the handling of the Finders investigation by D.C. police. "They dropped this case, one Tallahasse investigator says, "like a hot rock." D.C. police will not comment on the matter. As for the CIA, ranking officials describe allegation about links between the intelligence agency and the Finders as "hogwash" perhaps the result of a simple mix up with D.C. police. The only connection, according to the CIA: A firm that provided computer training to CIA officers also employed several members of the Finders.

The many unanswered questions about the Finders case now have Democratic Rep. Charlie Rose of North Carolina, chairman of the House Administration Committee, and Florida's Rep. Tom Lewis, a Republican, more than a little exercised. "Could our own government have something to do with this Finders organization and turned their backs on these children? That's what all the evidence points to," says Lewis. "And there is a lot of evidence. I can tell you this: We've got a lot of people scrambling, and that wouldn't be happening if there was nothing here."

Perhaps. But the Finders say there is nothing there - at least nothing illegal. The Finders have never been involved in child abuse, pornography, Satanism, animal slaughter or anything of the kind, says the group's leader, Marion David Pettie. Pettie, too, says the group has never been connected to the CIA. In an interview with U.S. News, Pettie described the Finders as a communal, holistic-living and learning arrangement. The group numbers some 20 members, Pettie says; they do freelance journalism, research and "competitor intelligence" for a variety of mostly foreign clients. The Finders work for no foreign governments, Pettie says. Their duplex, in a residential Northwest Washington neighborhood, is decorated with global maps and bulletin boards. Residents in Culpepper, Va., 90 minutes from Washington, say the Finders operated an office there, too, from time to time. That office contained computer terminals and clocks reflecting different time zones from around the world.

CIA officials say they referred all matters concerning the Finders and the police investigation to the FBI's Foreign Counterintelligence Division. FBI officials will not comment. Law enforcement sources say some of the Finders are listed in the FBI's classified counterintelligence files.

None of this fazes Pettie. He says the CIA's interest in the Finders may stem from the fact that his late wife once worked for the agency and that his son worked for a CIA proprietary firm, Air America. Overall, says Pettie, "we're a zero security threat. When you don't do much of anything, and you don't explain, people start rumors about you." To judge from the latest case, some of the rumors can last an awfully long time.

Cornell doctor sliced young girls’ genitals; Tested girls as young as six with vibrator, columnist says
http://rawstory.com/rs/2010/0617/doctor-removes-partial-clitorises-tests-6yearolds-vibrator/
By David Edwards
Thursday, June 17th, 2010 -- 3:04 pm


A Cornell doctor is performing partial clitoris removal on young girls and then using a vibrator to test their sensation in follow-up tests, a shocking column by syndicated columnist Dan Savage asserted Wednesday.

Dr. Dix P. Poppas has been performing the procedure on girls older than five for several years, according to 2007 paper (PDF) documenting the research. The doctor and patients' parents allegedly believe that the girls' clitorises are too large and create too much sensation.

Doctors Alice Dreger and Ellen K. Feder have criticized the practice for almost ten years.

Critics in medicine, bioethics, and patient advocacy have questioned the surgery’s necessity, safety, and efficacy. We still know of no evidence that a large clitoris increases psychological risk (so is the surgery even necessary?), and we do know of substantial anecdotal evidence that it does not increase risk. Importantly, there also seems to be evidence that clitoroplasties performed in infancy do increase risk – of harm to physical and sexual functioning, as well as psychosocial harm.

Dan Savage called the practice genital mutilation in a Wednesday column titled "Female Genital Mutilation at Cornell University."
Story continues below...

There's lots to be outraged about here: there's nothing wrong with these girls and their healthy, functional-if-larger-than-average clitorises; there's no need to operate on these girls; and surgically altering a girl's clitoris because it's "too big" has been found to do lasting physical and psychological harm.

While many have been aware of the procedure, called "Nerve Sparing Ventral Clitoroplasty," for years, Poppas is now alarming many experts with new details of a follow-up exam. Dreger and Feder recently brought to light the practice of stimulating the young girls' clitorises with a vibrator to test the efficacy of the partial clitoris removal.

Here more specifically is, apparently, what is happening: At annual visits after the surgery, while a parent watches, Poppas touches the daughter’s surgically shortened clitoris with a cotton-tip applicator and/or with a “vibratory device,” and the girl is asked to report to Poppas how strongly she feels him touching her clitoris. Using the vibrator, he also touches her on her inner thigh, her labia minora, and the introitus of her vagina, asking her to report, on a scale of 0 (no sensation) to 5 (maximum), how strongly she feels the touch. Yang, Felsen, and Poppas also report a “capillary perfusion testing,” which means a physician or nurse pushes a finger nail on the girl’s clitoris to see if the blood goes away and comes back, a sign of healthy tissue. Poppas has indicated in this article and elsewhere that ideally he seeks to conduct annual exams with these girls. He intends to chart the development of their sexual sensation over time.

Writing in an article for Psychology Today, Dreger suspected that the procedure and the follow-up exams were sure to cause more harm than good.

Many of us happen to think "normal" sexual development is actually likely to be thwarted by having parts of your genitals taken away without your consent, and thwarted by follow-up exams like the ones we are describing. Ellen and I have gotten to know hundreds of adults born with sex anomalies who went through these medical scenes growing up. Many have told us that the genital displays involved in the follow-up exams were more traumatic than any other part of the experience. Indeed, when I once asked a group of women with androgen insensitivity syndrome what they wanted me to work on primarily in my advocacy work, they said stopping the exams, particularly those in which med students, residents, and fellows parade through to check out the surgeon's handiwork.

The follow-up exam comes "very close to straight-up molestation," wrote conservative blogger Liz Mair.

"In fact, it seems to me that this is the kind of thing that a) Cornell University should not be tolerating, as a matter of practice and b) may well be worthy of actually legislating on, given the recent discussion of the American Academy of Pediatrics signing off on what amounts to better-branded female genital mutilation where needed to satisfy certain cultural dictates," said Mair.

"Cornell University needs to put a stop to this, immediately. If it is going on elsewhere, those cutting the checks wherever 'elsewhere' may be need to put a stop to it, also. This is, at a minimum, battery, and at worst, it's child abuse. Either way, it's intolerable," she concluded.



Obama-care? More Like Cornell-care

By David Murdter

In the days following the passage of health care reform, a few of my friends asked me how the bill would affect them. Many were wondering: What does this mean for the average college student? Well, if you go to Cornell, not much.


All of us are, in some capacity, familiar with Cornell’s SHIP, or Student Health Insurance Plan. Either we’re enrolled in it, or we freaked out when we saw a $1500 balance on our bursar because we forgot to send in the waiver. Just to recap, though: Cornell’s SHIP mandates that all students have quality health insurance. A student can be covered by his or her own insurance, provided the company is licensed to practice in the U.S, offers coverage in Ithaca, covers mental health care, has a maximum benefit of at least $500,000 per year, lasts throughout one’s tenure as a student and covers pre-existing conditions. Faulting that, students buy into a policy sponsored by Cornell through Aetna.

The program is, quite simply, a mandate. Have health insurance? Good. Don’t have it? Buy ours. Can’t afford it? Apply for financial aid.

To those, then, who espouse apocalyptic visions of a world post-health care reform, I suggest you look no further than Cornell to dispel your fears. To those who argue that mandates to purchase health insurance are the product of a government strong-arming its will onto the people, look to us: We’re not oppressed, we’re healthy.

Cornell’s system isn’t perfectly analogous to what’s been passed by the federal government, but there are some notable parallels. The bill mandates that by 2014, all individuals have health insurance. It provides exchanges through which small businesses and low-income individuals and families can increase their bargaining power and get lower cost health coverage. Perhaps most importantly, it provides certain tax incentives and subsidies for eligible low-income individuals and families to purchase insurance on the exchanges.

In truth, the health care bill is something of a national effort to create what we as Cornell students (like students at many other universities) already have: Health insurance for those who can afford it, and help for those who can’t.

There have also been fears about what the health care bill would do for those who already have coverage. In reality, the nature of one’s health insurance won’t change tremendously; however, no longer will insurance companies be able to rob people of much needed coverage when they are most vulnerable. Insurance companies won’t be able to deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions. They won’t be able to drop your coverage once you get sick. For those with rather expensive or recurring illnesses, the bill removes the cap on lifetime benefits, which would otherwise leave people with chronic or terminal illnesses high and dry. Lastly, here’s an excellent tidbit for us college students: We’ll be able to remain on our parent’s coverage until age 26.

Much of the fear regarding the passage of health care reform has been the product of an unfortunate and unwarranted misconstruction of the legislation: That the whole effort is some sort of government takeover of health care. All of the major components of the bill are efforts to reform private insurance markets; it relies heavily on empowering the consumer –– through increased access and protections –– to coax insurance companies into lowering costs. This doesn’t happen through price controls or massive government intervention; it happens through the marketplace.

Just as Cornell doesn’t tell us what type of coverage to have, what doctors to see, when we can or cannot have care or what to do with Grandma, this bill doesn’t place any barrier between you and your medical care. What it does do is give 32 million people proper medical care where before they had none.

I imagine that once the dust settles from this long, arduous and often outright-ridiculous debate, people will be able to see clearly what this legislation is: A well thought out market-driven solution to the persistent lack of health care coverage among millions of Americans, coupled with the persistent growth of health care costs. Time will make obvious the absurdity of Revelations-like visions of government tyranny and socialism. Meanwhile, we Cornell students should rest assured, knowing that our future won’t be much different from our present: Not only will we continue to have coverage, but it will be consistent, complete and most likely less expensive.

Software May Collect, Sell Data About Kids Chat Habits

Parents who install software sold under the Sentry and FamilySafe brands to monitor their kids' online activities may be unknowingly permitting the developer to collect and sell marketing data about their children, according to an Associated Press report on Friday.

The software brands in question, developed by Syosset, NY-based EchoMetrix Inc., can read private chats conducted through Yahoo, MSN, AOL and other services.  This information can then be sent back to the company and offered to advertisers seeking ways to target marketing messages to children.

"This scares me more than anything I have seen using monitoring technology," child-safety advocate Parry Aftab told the Associated Press.

"You don't put children's personal information at risk."

While the software does not gather the children's names, addresses or other identifiable information, it knows the ages of the kids because parents customize the software to a level of permissiveness according to their child’s age.

The Associated Press cited five other makers of parental-control software, including McAfee Inc. and Symantec Corp., which said they do not sell Internet chat data to advertisers.

One firm, CyberPatrol LLC, said it would never consider such a practice.

"That's pretty much confidential information," Barbara Rose, the company's vice president of marketing, told the AP.

"As a parent, I would have a problem with them targeting youngsters."

EchoMetrix CEO Jeff Greene told the AP that parents who don't want the company to share their child's information with businesses can choose to opt out by visiting the company's Web site.  However, the Associated Press said the option was not in the agreement contained in the program itself.

According to that agreement, the software sends data to "trusted partners,” although confidentiality agreements ban those clients from sharing the data with others.

The agreement says the company has "a parent's permission to share the information if the user is a child under age 13,” in accordance to federal privacy laws.

Although sales figures were not available, EchoMetrix software is rated among the top three for parental control by the technology Web site CNET.

The Sentry and FamilySafe brands include parental-control software such as Sentry Total Family Protection, Sentry Basic, Sentry Lite and FamilySafe, although SentryPC is produced by a different company and has no association with EchoMetrix.

The Lite version is provided at no charge, while others range in price from $20 to download and $10 a year for monitoring, to roughly $48 a year.  The same company also offers software under partner brands such as AmberWatch Lookout.

Aftab said that many people fail to read the fine print before clicking to agree to the licensing agreement.

"Unless it's upfront in neon letters, parents don't know," he said.

EchoMetrix, formerly known as SearchHelp, said companies purchasing the chat information have included News Corp.'s Fox Broadcasting, Dreamworks SKG Inc., and Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures.

But the company told the AP that only Paramount Pictures agreed to have its affiliation disclosed.  The others declined for competitive reasons, but Fox told the AP that while it never used the system, it sat in meetings in which EchoMetrix pitched the product.

According to recent regulatory filings, EchoMetrix could use the business.  Indeed, the filings show the company has been losing money, and that as of June 30 its liabilities exceed its assets.

There is now a “substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern,” the filing read.

To obtain the marketing data on the EchoMetrix system, companies enter keywords, such as the name of a new product, and also specify a date range.   In return, they receive a "word cloud" display of the most commonly used words and snippets of actual chats.  The system can partition data according to age groups, region and even the type of instant-messaging program used.

Greene said the company complies with current U.S. privacy laws.

"We never know the name of the kid - it's bobby37 on the house computer," he told the AP.

What the system does reveal, however, is how "bobby37" and other teens feel about new computer games, upcoming movies, clothing trends and other topics.  Such data can help marketers tailor their marketing messages as buzz begins building about a particular product.

For example, days ahead of the "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" opening in July, teen chatter about the film spiked across the Internet with primarily positive reactions.

"Cool" turned out to be one of the most heavily used words in teen chats, blogs, forums and on Twitter.  The positive feedback foreshadowed a solid opening for the film.

The system also tracked hype ahead of for Microsoft Corp.'s "Natal," a forthcoming Xbox motion-sensor device that replaces the conventional button-based controller. Although the software giant is not a client of Echometrix, the company used "Natal" to demonstrate how its data can benefit marketers.

Greene said teen conversations about Natal were centered on price and availability, suggesting that Microsoft should assure would-be customers that there will be an adequate stock and that pre-ordering can lock in a price.

Rival data-mining firms such as J.D. Power Web Intelligence, a unit of J.D. Power and Associates, also monitors the Internet for consumer chats.  However, Vice President Chase Parker told the AP that the company does not read any data that's password-protected, such as the instant messaging sessions that EchoMetrix gathers for marketers.

Forrester Research principal analyst Suresh Vittal said EchoMetrix might have to make its practices more visible to parents.

"Are we in the safeguarding-the-children business or are we in the business of selling data to other people?" he said during an interview with the AP.

In the case of the latter, then "it should all be done transparently and with the knowledge of the customer,” he said.

VIACOM, DISNEY, Nickelodeon: providing soft porn Web Games for Kids

Nickelodeon Promoting 'Naughty' Games to Kids!?
http://cwnewz.com/content/view/1337/2/
Written by Leah Jones    
Wednesday, 16 June 2010



Christian Web News - The children's network Nickelodeon is now promoting a selection of naughty games that allow players to look up teachers' skirts and perform a variety of sexual acts – prominently linking to the sexy games from its popular websites for young kids, reports WorldNetDaily.

Nickelodeon links to AddictingGames.com from its websites for children, including Neopets.com and Nick.com. AddictingGames, a website owned by Nickelodeon parent company Viacom, features the Nickelodeon logo and has approximately 34 million monthly users.

The NewsBusters blog noted that the Nickelodeon website features racy games such as "Naughty Babysitter," "Booty Rider" and "You da Sperm!" "You da Sperm" was set to inactive at the time of this report. Several other games, including "Asstroys," "Vanessa Naughty Toys," "Magic Fingers," "Perry the Sneak" and "Naughty Starlets" have been removed. However, one game that remains active on the website allows players to glimpse under a teacher's skirt and inside her blouse. The game, called "Naughty Classroom," begins with three young boys sitting at the front of a classroom and admiring a photo of their female teacher. "Remember that hot schoolteacher you had a crush on in high school?" the game asks. "The subject of your adolescent dreams, the only teacher who could get your undivided attention in class? Presenting our mouthwatering version of the ultimate teacher-goddess! Here's your chance to fulfill your ultimate childhood fantasy! Naughty Classroom will leave you begging for more homework!" A teacher walks into the classroom wearing a miniskirt and spike heels. At one point, she unbuttons her shirt and flashes her undergarments at her students. Players can prompt one of the male students to turn on a fan, and a gush of air lifts the teacher's skirt. Another game, "Naughty Gym Teacher," asks, "Why should boys have all the fun? The giggly schoolgirls cannot get enough of their hot male gym instructor, and they will resort to the naughtiest tricks to get what they want." "I would love to be Coach Rodder's 'dumb belle,'" one girl says. "Naughty Babysitter" allows a boy character to shoot ice cubes down his babysitter's blouse. The babysitter gets physical with her boyfriend on the sofa and even kisses the boy she is babysitting. "Perry the Perv" depicts a cartoon man ogling large-breasted, scantily clad women in public places. "Perry the Sneak loves women," the description states. "The only problem is that women don't love Perry. … Help Perry get an eyeful without getting a handful for being the world's best Serial Peeker!" Other games include "Naughty Detective," "Naughty Airplane," "Naughty Elevator," "Naughty Beach," "Naughty Park," "Naughty Supermarket" and "Naughty Summer Camp."

AddictingGames also features "Stick Dude Killing Arena," where players "train to kill until you die." The game features splatters of blood and offers a suicide option. Likewise, "Dark Cut" and "Dark Cut 2" feature "More macho surgery! No anesthetic. No antiseptics. Just rusty knives, corn whiskey, and lots of blood!" AddictingGames warns of "mature content" by featuring a very small image of a bomb near game titles. The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, a national coalition of health-care professionals, educators, advocacy groups and parents, has spoken out against Nickelodeon's promotion of AddictingGames, noting that thousands of parents have written the company to demand it remove links to AddictingGames from its children's websites. Members of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood overwhelmingly chose AddictingGames as 2010's winner of the Toys Oppressive And Destructive to Young Children Award, also known as the TOADY, for the worst toy of the year. "Nickelodeon's cynical disregard of pleas from parents is troubling," said Dr. Diane Levin, professor at Wheelock College and co-author of "So Sexy So Soon." "It seems that keeping children's eyes glued to advertiser-supported screens by providing edgy content is much more important to Nick than honoring parents' trust." Newsbusters writer Alana Goodman noted, "Nick.com describes itself as 'THE place for kids to play games online!' There will even be an entire show devoted to promoting an AddictingGames.com contest airing on Nickelodeon's TV station on June 19." "With widespread concern over teachers sexually abusing children, it's bizarre that Nickelodeon would partner with a website that seemingly endorses that type of behavior," Goodman wrote. "Also troubling are the lessons that some of the video games seem to teach children – namely, that it's acceptable to sexually harass women."

Police Pull Crying Teens Off School Bus For Unannounced Topless Strip-Search

Police Pull Teens Off School Bus For Unannounced Invasive Strip-Search
Crying girls told to remove tops and submit to “waistband search” in presence of male officers

http://www.prisonplanet.com/police-pull-teens-off-school-bus-for-unannounced-invasive-strip-search.html
Louise Hoffman Broach Post-Herald Online Thursday, April 23, 2009

RED CREEK - The superintendent of the Red Creek school district is investigating complaints by students, parents and the Civil Liberties Union of Central New York that a physical search of several students for drugs might have been too intrusive.

The state Education Department is also waiting for the school to complete an inquiry, said District Superintendent David Sholes.

“We’ve had drug overdoses in the last year and a half and arrests of some of the BOCES students relative to drugs,” Sholes said about what prompted the April 9 search. “Drugs were getting to BOCES and the obvious way they were getting there was on the BOCES bus. We were trying to address a major on-going problem. If we made some mistakes, we’re willing to correct them. We’re not going to cover it up.”

On April 9, the students who attend morning classes at the BOCES center got on their bus, expecting a typical ride to the Williamson campus. What happened next, according to some of them, was anything but typical.

State troopers got on the bus and told the students to put their hands on the seats in front of them, although some students said they were told to put their hands on the bus ceiling. They were then escorted from the bus in groups of two and taken to the main office. Additionally, two students were pulled from their classes. State Police Trooper Ben Kauder, the school’s resource officer, said some of the BOCES students were suspected of having drugs; the students who were called out of class had previous dealings with the school resource officer regarding contraband.

All of the students were subjected to a search. Principal Noel Patterson, Dean of Students Matthew Van Orman and Library Aide Laurie Howland conducted it in the presence of two male state troopers. During the search, neither Sholes nor Kauder were present, they said.

All of the students were asked to turn their pockets inside out, take off their socks and shoes and their belts. Some of the female students said they were asked to remove their tops and at least one of the girls, distressed at what Kauder called a “waistband search” in the presence of males, was in tears in the office, both he and Sholes acknowledged.

While Patterson told a parent he did not ask anyone to remove clothing, Kauder and Sholes said someone could have asked the girls to remove what could have been perceived as outer garments, such as a sweatshirt or a “hoodie.” Kauder said that was how he instructed the search should be conducted.

The girls, called the search embarrassing, invasive and humiliating. Some of them, as well as some of the boys, were angry, too, that it was assumed they would be carrying drugs although they had never been in trouble for such an activity.

Parents "take kids to work day" incl. electrically torturing them in public

Don’t Tase Me, Dad..

Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day turns into a real shocker


By  GINGER HARRIS
Updated 2:25 PM EDT, Sat, May 2, 2009
http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/weird/Dont-Tase-Me-Dad.html

Take your children to work day, now with optional tasing.
 
Who knew taking your kids to work could be such a shocking experience. The children whose parents work at Franklin Correctional Institution in Carrabelle, Florida, that’s who.

When the unsuspecting children of the institution headed to work at the Panhandle prison with their moms and dads, they had no idea they’d be treated like inmates. But that’s exactly what Sgt. Walter Schmidt did when he used a stunning device to zap kids with 50,000 volts of electricity. The Sun-Sentinel reports the children fell to the ground, yelling in pain and grabbing at the red burn marks the volts left on their arms. One child was even taken to a hospital. Schmidt, who worked with the Department of Corrections for 14 years, says he doesn’t see how he was in the wrong, especially considering he asked for parental consent prior to shocking the youths. “When they said, ‘sure,” I went ahead and did it, “ he tells the paper. “It wasn’t intended to be malicious, but educational.” Seems Schmidt won’t be using his methods to further anyone else’s education. He was fired for the incident.

Feds: No charges in Pa. school laptop-spying case and they kept 56,000 pics.
« Reply #48 on: August 19, 2010, 10:35:53 pm »
PHILADELPHIA No criminal charges will be filed against a suburban Philadelphia school district that secretly snapped tens of thousands of webcam photographs and screen shots on laptops issued to students.
The FBI and federal prosecutors announced Tuesday they could not prove any criminal wrongdoing by Lower Merion School District employees.

"We have not found evidence that would establish beyond a reasonable doubt that anyone involved had criminal intent," U.S. Attorney Zane D. Memeger said in a statement.

The FBI investigated the wealthy district for possible wiretap violations after a student's civil lawsuit exposed the issue. Lower Merion High School student Blake Robbins alleged the district photographed him 400 times in a 15-day period last fall, sometimes as he slept in his bedroom or was half-dressed.
District officials said its technology staff only activated the remote tracking system to try to find laptops that had been reported lost or stolen. But the district soon acknowledged that the software system sometimes remained activated for weeks or months, even after a laptop was found causing the district to capture 56,000 webcam photographs and screen shots from student laptops.

"We are very pleased with today's decision by the U.S. Attorney's Office, which supports the findings of our internal investigation," Superintendent Christopher W. McGinley said. "This is all good news for the students and staff of Lower Merion School District as we prepare for the start of a new school year."
The federal prosecutor's announcement follows a school board decision Monday to prohibit the remote use of the tracking software without the written consent of students and their parents or guardians. The policy was recommended by a task force formed in the wake of the February lawsuit.

Robbins' lawsuit is pending, and a second student has joined him in suing the district over the alleged electronic spying.

None of the images captured appeared to be salacious or inappropriate, school officials have said. The district said it remotely activated the software to find 80 missing laptops in the past two years.
About 38,000 of the images were taken over several months from six computers reported stolen from a locker room.

The tracking program took images every 15 minutes, usually capturing the webcam photo of the user and a screen shot at the same time.
