US Police scam Vancouver company that sells encrypted BlackBerrys
Kim Bolan has exposed another police scam. She reports that "The owner of a Vancouver company that sells encrypted BlackBerrys popular with B.C. gangsters is facing charges in the U.S. of racketeering, conspiracy and drug trafficking. Vincent Ramos, who started Phantom Secure in 2008, is even alleged in U.S. court documents to have sold his specialized devices to “some members of the (Mexican) Sinaloa (drug) cartel.” Ramos, 41, was arrested in the U.S. on Wednesday, as police in Metro Vancouver raided his business and home."
Only he's not being charged in Canada he's being charged in the US. "The U.S. alleges Ramos, Phantom Secure and others whose names are blacked out engaged in a pattern of racketeering activity involving gambling, money laundering and drug trafficking. And Ramos is also alleged to have knowingly and intentionally conspired with other persons to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine.” Only they are referring to a sting operation which constitutes entrapment.
The police posed as drug dealers and asked him Is this system secure? He said yes. They said can you wipe our blackberries clean? He said yes. He was not involved with any drug trafficking at all. That's like arresting all Internet providers because someone who used their service was looking at child porn or selling drugs online. The ISP is not liable for what customers do.
US police coming into Canada to search his home and business. That crosses the line. They'll search him but they won't search Shakerz. That means their motives are suspect.
Obviously I don't support drug trafficking yet I don't support US police taking someone from Canada and trying them in a US court on bogus charges they made up. Edward Snowden is in hiding because he exposed the fact that the NSA were breaking the law and lied to congress. The fact that they want to throw him in jail and not charge the NSA is evidence of just how screwed up the US is right now and how far they have deviated from their scared constitution.
The US authorities like to spy on everyone. They don't like it when anyone creates a method of encryption that they can't access. Normally when they reroute a cell phone with their Stingray antennas they can access encrypted messages. Perhaps they are unable to hack this system.
After Operation Fast and Furious where the CIA and the ATF were selling the Mexican cartel guns and bringing back tons of cocaine into the United States as payment it is pretty obvious that the US authorities are not concerned with disrupting drug trafficking. They are only concerned with eliminated drug dealing rivals and betraying those that worked for them.
Since the RCMP is watching the drug trafficking out of Shakerz supplying the Surrey strip with Fentanyl it is obvious that they are not concerned with disrupting drug trafficking either. They just want to be able to seize the proceeds of crime for letting it flourish.
This news release once again perpetuates the police propaganda pretending to use tax dollars to stop organized crime when they are in reality doing the exact opposite. They are promoting organized crime while they kill the constitution and civl liberty in the process.
