Man Who Filmed FBI Building Is Arrested And Falsely Accused Of Voyeurism
August 2. 2017
Left to right: former FBI Directors James Comey and Robert S. Mueller and former U.S. President Obama illegally spied on people in their homes
A Pocatello Police Department officer in Idaho falsely accused a man, Sean Johnson, of voyeurism for filming a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) building. He was arrested and labeled a voyeur. However, Pocatello Police Department Chief, Scott Marchand, has issued a retraction, "We make mistakes every day. I make mistakes every day. We learn from them." However, the charges against the man still stands. People have flooded the Pocatello Police Department's Facebook page slamming their conduct.
It is not illegal to take videos or photos of a federal building. The FBI encouraged the police to pursue the incident as a criminal matter when it is not under US law. Furthermore, a person can drive by a building day after day and study it. A person could also use a car dashcam to film a building while driving by it. That is not voyeurism.
Voyeurism is the FBI illegally spying on people in their homes via their smart televisions, Amazon's Alexa, by hacking into webcams, as well as installing hidden cameras in homes and hotels rooms, as they have done on different occasions (Wikileaks Releases Hacked U.S. Federal Government Documents Showing The CIA And FBI Are Spying On People In Their Homes Via Hacking Smart TVs And Backdoors In Computer And Phone Operating System Confirming Previous Judiciary Report Site Claims). In one court case, the judge slammed the FBI for placing a hidden camera in a man's hotel room. The FBI ended up getting footage of the man's underage child in various states of undress.
The man was not a pedophile nor was the investigation based on such allegations. The man and his child were temporarily staying at a hotel and the FBI had accused him of a non-sex crime and one not related to minors. Therefore, not only was the man's privacy violated, so was his child.
The FBI makes horrendously poor judgment calls like this on a regular basis is perversely and insidiously spying on people in homes and hotels. Only degenerates, sex offenders, voyeurs and perverts spy on people in their homes and hotels. It's sick, disgusting, reprehensible and inexcusable. The chickens are going to come home to roost regarding the FBI's sick voyeurism. It is going to catch up with the FBI and end up in Congress in ugly, painful, acrimonious hearings.
Police Chief: "public voyeurism" is not a crime, addresses concern over FBI recording video
Charges against video owner will stand
Posted: Jul 24, 2017 02:23 PM MDT - POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - In a news conference Monday afternoon, the Pocatello Police Department said an officer seen telling a man recording video of the FBI building that he was committing “public voyeurism” misspoke, but charges against the man recording the video will stand. “We make mistakes,” Pocatello police Chief Scott Marchand said. “We make mistakes every day. I make mistakes every day. We learn from them.”
Sean Johnson, of Chubbuck, was recording the FBI building from a public sidewalk in June when an officer arrived and approached Johnson. “Everything alright?” the officer asked. Johnson does not acknowledge the officer until the unidentified officer tells Johnson he “got a call” that Johnson “was recording the FBI building.”...“That's correct, I am,” Johnson can be heard saying in the video...
You Can Photograph That Federal Building
By David W. Dunlap Oct. 18, 2010 Oct. 18, 2010 - The right of photographers to stand in a public place and take pictures of federal buildings has been upheld by a legal settlement reached in New York. In the ever-escalating skirmishes between photographers and security agencies, the most significant battlefield is probably the public way — streets, sidewalks, parks and plazas — which has customarily been regarded as a vantage from which photography cannot and should not be barred.
Under the settlement, announced Monday by the New York Civil Liberties Union, the Federal Protective Service said that it would inform its officers and employees in writing of the “public’s general right to photograph the exterior of federal courthouses from publicly accessible spaces” and remind them that “there are currently no general security regulations prohibiting exterior photography by individuals from publicly accessible spaces, absent a written local rule, regulation or order.”
Is It Illegal To Take Pictures of Federal Buildings?
Photographers' Rights When It Comes to Government Buildings
Updated October 15, 2016 - It is not illegal to take pictures of federal buildings such as courthouses. A court settlement reached in 2010 affirmed the right of citizens to shoot still images and video footage of federal buildings. But do keep in mind that photographing federal buildings may arouse the suspicions of those around you, particularly federal agents, in this post-9/11 era.
Just ask Antonio Musumeci. He's the 29-year-old Edgewater, N.J. man who was arrested by a Federal Protective Service officer in November 2009 while videotaping in a public plaza outside the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Federal Courthouse in New York. Musumeci sued the Department of Homeland Security, which has oversight of Protective Service agents who guard federal buildings. In October 2010, he and the public ultimately won and the legality of photographing federal buildings was upheld.
In the case, a judge signed a settlement where the government agreed that no federal statutes or regulations bar the public from taking pictures of the exterior of federal buildings. The settlement also outlined an agreement where the agency responsible for all government buildings (the Federal Protective Service) had to issue a directive to all of its members about photographers' rights...
