  1. Councilman Midkiff,
    You have some very good information about the red light camera debacle. The Tennessee Liberty Alliance is currently orchestrating a fight against these in a local community near Knoxville. I have placed a link to your site on our current homepage, and would wonder if you would consider linking to us as well in your blogroll. If you have any questions about our organization, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes,
    Dave Drum

  2. Constitutions and Cameras

    Shame, shame, shame on the Tri-Cities’ TV and newspaper reporters for not quoting the 4th and 6th amendments to the US Constitution and the 7th and 9th of the Tennessee Declaration of Rights in the discussion of the stop light and speed cameras. The buck starts and stops with the Constitutions, THE law of the land. The reporters I talked had not read the Constitutions!

    The US Constitution’s 4th amendment states: “no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation” and the Tennessee Declaration of Rights’ 7th states: “…without evidence of the fact committed, or …whose offences are not particularly described and supported by evidence”.

    The 4th and 7th entwine with the US Constitution’s 6th amendment: “to be confronted with the witnesses against him” and the Tennessee’s 9th: “to meet the witnesses face to face” in the courtroom under oath on the witness stand asking “Do You Have a Claim Against Me?”

    The amendments to these Constitutions do not end with the phrase: “Except under these conditions…” They are active every second of every hour of every day. There is no on and off switch for the Constitutions.

    The tickets pictured in Chief Nelson’s hand are NOT even signed, much less signed under penalties of perjury. They are printed and mailed out void of oath or affirmation. The citations fail the Constitutional checks and balances. Even if a police officer signed them, he does so with “It appears…” The camera is the real party of interest and can not take the stand.

    Tennessee Attorney General Robert E. Cooper’s personal opinion –“the cameras are constitutional” is just hot air! Please, ANY Tri-city reporter, ask him to sign the same statement under penalties of perjury that the cameras are constitutional per the 4th and 6th and the 7th and the 9th. Please – ask the hard questions for your readers!

    Tennessee Constitution’s Article X-1 oath of office “to support the Constitution of this State, and of the United States” that the mayor, the city council, the police chief, the prosecuting attorney and the judges are required to take does not end with “Except under these conditions…” It would behoove these elected officials and the free men and women to read Code of Tennessee 39-16-403 ~ Official oppression.
