Townhall Meeting THIS Saturday to STOP Special Order 1 and LAPD Spying!
Do you take pictures or shoot videos in public?
Do you ask about a place’s hours of operation?
Do you take notes?
Do you draw diagrams?
Do you use binoculars for sightseeing or bird watching?
If you do any of the above and/or many other non-criminal activities, LAPD Considers You a Suspicious Person!!
In March of 2008 LAPD issued Special Order 11 (SO 11), which authorizes LAPD officers to gather intelligence based on “observed behavior.” These behaviors include such everyday non-criminal activities such as listed above. LAPD submits Suspicious Activity Reports to a national information-sharing network which links government and private collectors and users of intelligence data. SO 11 has been edited and superseded by Special Order 1 effective January 2, 2012. The “new” order, while a little more clear in its language, at its core basically contains the same content.
PUBLIC SAFETY OR PUBLIC INSECURITY? STOP LAPD SPYING!!
Join us for a Townhall Meeting for a collective conversation and share thoughts about the campaign, as well as develop clear next steps for how people can get involved in the campaign to rescind LAPD Special Order 1 (formerly SO 11).
