rom Peg-Leg Howell and Barbecue Bob in Atlanta before moving on to Dallas where they recorded the ‘guitar evangelist’ Blind Willie Johnson. The outstanding guitarist Lonnie Johnson had been recording regularly for Okeh, and he accompanied their field-unit as it recorded Mississippi John Hurt in Memphis and Texas Alexander when they called at Dallas. Victor concentrated on the area around Memphis, and were rewarded with a fine crop of Delta Blues players like Tommy JohnsonIshmon Bracey and Frank Stokes as well as The Memphis Jug Band and Gus Cannon‘s Jug Stompers. Other Blues legends to make their mark in 1927 included pianist Cow Cow Davenport and Cryin’ Sam Collins, as country guitar pickers, barrel-house pianists and Blues Divas found their records on sale next to Gospel choirs and proclaiming Ministers.

this is some notes for my homework into pre-elvis rock.

tonight i spaced out and forgot to go see henry rollins live.
i have just misse him like this a few times already, beginning at his black flag denver show when i didn't have $10 and bus fare from boulder, so i didn't go.
i have a lot of short term memory loss these days.
so instead i stayed home and listened to him do a podcast about the making of this interview.
when it comes time to do my book, his small press will be my first rejection letter. then chilton's.

nope that was too short a clip. youtube seems to have taken down the clip i wanted.

Song by Million Dollar Quartet
Glory hallelujah, I shall not be moved
Anchored in Jehovah, I shall not be moved 
Just like the tree that's planted by the waters
I shall not be moved
In His love abiding, I shall not be moved
And in Him confiding, I shall not be moved
Just like the tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like the tree that's planted by the waters
I shall not be moved
Though all Hell assail me, I shall not be moved
Jesus will not fail me, I shall not be moved
Just like the tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved
Though the tempest rages, I shall not be moved
On the rock of ages, I shall not be moved
Just like the tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like the tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like the tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

this week i've been watching the detectives.



Oh it's so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl.
And with the way you look I understand
That you are not impressed.
But I heard you let that little friend of mine
Take off your party dress.
I'm not going to get too sentimental
Like those other sticky valentines,
Cause I don't know if you've been loving somebody.
I only know it isn't mine.
Alison, I know this world is killing you.
Oh, Alison, my aim is true.
Well I see you've got a husband now.
Did he leave your pretty fingers lying
In the wedding cake?
You used to hold him right in your hand.
I'll bet he took all he could take.

i am the arbitrary aardvark. i fight crime. i'm not very good at it. crime usually wins.

today i got aan email that a package was waiting for me at the sheriff's office. shortly after noon, brian, my videographer, recorded me picking it up uneventfully. so that's our second newest video. 
inside the package was a video of our recent incident with me and brian and john doe and dawn y, where i was unlawfully denied entrance to the city county building.

i haven't seen their video yet. we will post it to brian's channel when he gets back from atlanta.

Our name began as a wisecrack. In 2000, writer Jamie Kalven and two collaborators were operating out of a vacant unit in a public housing highrise where the online human rights reporting platform The View From The Ground was born. With tongue in cheek, Kalven wrote that The View was published under the auspices of something called the Invisible Institute. The name stuck. Now, the name represents an unfolding adventure: a process of inquiry, exploration and relationship-building. As many of our projects center on themes of visibility and place, there is another meaning to our name: We seek to keep fellow citizens visible by resisting the forces that disappear certain individuals, populations and places.

happy constitution day from us at iron ring civil liberties engineers.

If you’re not yet familiar with The Intercept, you should be. Glenn Greenwald, one of its founding editors, broke the story of Edward Snowden. Their reporters are respected (and feared) for their bold work documenting corporate and governmental abuses of power.
So when Intercept Reporter Alice Speri contacted us about our new Open Police Complaints (OPC) project, we were eager to help! The long-form article details how our work bypasses the blue wall of silence blocking police misconduct data from public view. Most notably, Speri makes a powerful case for why we must allow OPC users to publish officers’ names with their complaints. Simply put, transparency and accountability require it.
Here’s the final section of the article where she covers Open Police Complaints.

A National Clearinghouse for Police Complaints

So far, efforts to use open data to track officer misconduct and hold police departments accountable are few and limited. But with 18,000 law enforcement agencies across the country, each ruled by different sets of local regulations, there is no uniformity in how police misconduct is tracked, if at all, and in a majority of places, the public has no access to records of complaints filed against police.

That might be about to change, as a civil rights group is preparing to launch a nationwide website that will allow users to file official reports of officer misconduct and abuse, while also making those reports immediately public. For years, Flex Your Rights, the group behind the Open Police Complaints initiative, ran “constitutional literacy” workshops, educating the public on their rights during police encounters. But they soon realized that wasn’t enough.

“The events of the last few years have shined an important light on the fact that people are going to have bad police encounters regardless of whether they ‘flex’ their rights perfectly or not,” Steve Silverman, the group’s founder and director, told The Intercept.

Instead, the new website, which is set to go live early next year, will aim to bring some uniformity and accountability to the police complaint process, by compiling research on different departments’ requirements and allowing users to either file complaints directly online — for those departments that choose to participate in the initiative — or upload the complaints they file on their own and share those reports publicly.

The idea is to simplify the complaint process for citizens and minimize the need for people to file grievances in person at a police station, “where they’re bound to have another bad encounter,” Silverman said. The site will populate a report by asking users dozens of questions and will offer varying degrees of transparency, allowing users to publicly disclose anything from bare, anonymous details of the incident to full narrative accounts including names of officers and victims. It will also give police departments an opportunity to respond and update each report with the findings of their investigations.

“We’re trying to use open data in order to encourage better responsiveness but also to track how well and how poorly departments are responding to complaints, as one of the big reasons why police complaints processes suck is because they’re very unresponsive,” Silverman said. “Of course there are going to be some police departments and individual officers who chafe at the idea that their name might be attached to a public complaint. But if that’s the case, they should go ahead and properly and swiftly investigate the complaint and they’ll have an opportunity to post their findings.”

The group said it would protect the site from misuse and false reports — and potential libel suits — by requiring that all police complaints be officially filed before they can be shared publicly, and by flagging “frequent flier” users and filling the site with disclaimer notices reminding readers that the reports are allegations. It will also offer tools to connect citizens filing complaints with attorneys in their areas, as well as to other relevant resources.

“We hope that by providing this kind of information in a public way, we’ll urge departments to take action,” Silverman said.

But even if departments refuse to engage with the site — and Silverman and Morgan Lesko, the project’s main developer, expect it will take a few years to compile a significant volume of complaints and get departments to take notice — the reports will be accessible and easily searchable by anyone.

“In the worst case scenario — that we don’t get appropriate feedback from police departments — we still have these collected online,” said Lesko. “And it’s all published in one place; it’s not just lost on Facebook somewhere, scattered around in rant form. It’s a public record.”

Its 5.3 percent bonds dropped 1.75 cents, sliding under 84 cents on the dollar, a record low, according to Trace bond price data. That gives the notes a yield of 8.4%.

notes for a notice of tort claim. 

today around 3 pm i went to the city county building with brian dawn and wilfred (name changed due to innocence.) 

i was 'trespassed' from the city county building for a day, interfering in my ability to obtain public records.

the reason is we were videoing. i think this is a violation of the indiana constitution's free speechsections, such as article 1 sections 9, 11, 12, 1, 2, and 31, and my public easement  right to travel to the city county building as a seat of government.

i make no section 23 claim at this time, in light of collins v day, see also lwv v. rokita.

also implicated are amendments 1, 8, 4 9, 10, and 14th of the united states constitution, including incorporate provisions,such as the 1st an 8th, but also due process equal protection and privileges and immunities clauses.
 . possibly the pre-amendment constitution also applies somehow.

i have an urgent need to contact the victim of a police assault. i was trying to access the records desk and also we were there to request to view/inspect voting records of dawn, wilfred, palafax, and myself.

This case presents the question about whether the Marion County Sheriff s Office properly denied the Complainant’s recorcls request.
1. The Access to Public Records Act (“APRA”)
It is the public policy of the State of Indiana that all persons are entitled to full and complete information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of those who [rep]resent them as public officials and employees. Ind. Code § 5- 11-5-i. Further, APRA states that “(p)roviding persons with information is an essential function of a representative government and an integral part of the roiitine duties of public officials and employees, whose duty it is to provide the information.” Id. There is no dispute that the Marion County Sheriff s Office (“MCSO”) is a public agency for the purposes of the APRA; and thus, subject to the Act’s disclo sure requirements. Ind. Code § 5-14-3-2(q)(6).
Therefore, unless otherwise provided by statute, any person may inspect and copy the MCSO’s public records during its regular business hours. See Ind. Code § 5-14-0-3(a).
