Expect to see him in a suit testifying in court, or before Congress. This young man is a witness and a victim, and the fact that this isn’t a more prominent story on every news station is what truly frightens me. From The Dallas News: Galicia says he lost 26 pounds during that time in a South Texas immigrant detention center because officers didn’t provide him with enough food. He said he wasn’t allowed to shower and his skin was dry and dirty. He and 60 other men were crammed into an overcrowded holding area where they slept on the floor and were given only aluminum-foil blankets, he said. Some men had to sleep on the restroom area floor. Ticks bit some of the men and some were very sick, Galicia said. But many were afraid to ask to go to the doctor because CBP officers told them their stay would start over if they did, he said. I would remind you that concentration camps are actually real.  “I told them we had rights and asked to make a phone call.

Please take a moment to read the article about what this man is doing, the criminals he is exposing, and the deaths of so many poor and middle class families at the hands of the greedy. Yellow lights with Xerox cameras were shortened from 5 seconds to 3 seconds in poor and middle class neighborhoods to surprise drivers and generate more revenue. Many deaths ensued. This story is already a couple months old, but there isn’t enough talk about it. Please signal boost this. http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/04/26/new-york-man-arrested-for-cutting-wires-to-red-light-cameras-after-exposing-government-revenue-generating-scheme/ even traffic lights are racist 😧😧😧😧 The gag is it was a Black man who invented the traffic light and now white supremacy is using it to kill us what in the fuck. Also notice this man looks DELIGHTED in his mugshot, probably because he knows it will help shine a light on the subject. This guy’s an actual American hero, using his white privilege for good.  Please read his story and I know y’all don’t click links so: A New York man known as the Red Light Robin Hood was arrested again this  month after cutting wires to red light cameras where yellow light duration  times were shortened by the city in order to generate more citations and  revenue. The shortened durations at the traffic lights generate $32 million for Suffolk  County, which is why the county allows the practice to continue despite their  own study showing they lead to an increase in accidents with injuries. PINAC’s Theresa Richard reported about Stephen Ruth back in February  after seeing videos he posted on Facebook that prove the lights near the  cameras trick drivers into citations. At that point, Ruth had already been arrested in August for using a painter’s  extension rod to point the cameras towards the sky. On April 11, he went a little further and cut wires to 18 cameras. “I cut the cable wires, making it useless. I’ve made it  dysfunctional, just like the whole red-light camera  program,” said Ruth during a local interview. “I did it in  order to save lives.” And after he cut the wires, he called the news to cover his act of civil  disobedience, which resulted in his arrest after police received pressure from  politicians. Ruth said police and sheriff deputies support him, because  they’re aware of the shortened yellow lights. Some may even testify on his behalf if his case goes to trial. When he was in  jail for his most recent arrest, a sheriff’s deputy even offered to bail him out. But after receiving attention from local residents and media, Ruth discovered  a government entity mounted a camera outside of his home on a telephone  pole just like the one LaVoy Finicum took down during the standoff with the  government at a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. But Ruth doesn’t know exactly where it came from. “The only reason the government is so concerned about me is because I  proved that they shortened the yellow lights to generate revenue and killed a  lot of innocent people,” said Stephen Ruth just before he painted over the  camera with a painter’s extension pole. Ruth currently faces 22 years in prison for tampering of public property and  obstructing government administration, but relies on his faith and stated he’s  on a mission from God to save lives. Ruth said that a car tried to hit him head-on and narrowly missed his vehicle.  Upon talking to neighbors, they described a similar vehicle with similar  occupants staking out his house and lurking around his neighborhood. He said someone could be trying to kill him, although he said he could be  wrong. “The only way they can keep this from gaining national attention is to get rid of me,” he said. If you think Ruth may be paranoid, consider the case of John Lang, a traffic- light scam whistleblower in Fresno, California who posted on Facebook that  police were trying to kill him just days before he was found stabbed to death  in his burned down house. Police ruled his death a suicide. If Suffolk County’s contract with Xerox is any indication of what other cities’  contracts with Xerox look like, the problem extends much farther than Suffolk  County. So Ruth’s “paranoia” might not be paranoia at all. In Suffolk County, yellow lights at 50 intersections with cameras were shortened  in 2011 after state legislators approved the cameras to be installed in 2010. In  2012, 50 more cameras were installed at intersections, which increased revenue  by $17 million. The video below, shot by Ruth, shows the duration of a yellow light at an  intersection with no cameras to be five seconds compared to the duration of a  yellow light at an intersection with a camera to be three seconds. That two-second reduction has netted millions of extra dollars for the county  and Xerox, the publicly-owned company that contracts the cameras. Ruth pointed out some cameras that were put up have been taken down after  they fell short of daily contract-quota with Xerox to produce 25 citations, per  camera, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., which costs Suffolk County $2,132 per  day, according to the Xerox contract with the county. Xerox collects $13 from Suffolk County for each ticket, which increases to $33  per ticket when a camera generates more than 90 tickets in a month. Ruth pointed out that the vast majority of cameras were placed in lower to  middle class neighborhoods. “I’m on 25A and Setauket and you can see that there’s no  cameras to be found. Lower class neighborhoods are  loaded with cameras. But if you drive through Setauket,  you won’t see any cameras. Why are they all over the lower  and middle class neighborhoods? That’s what we want to  know,” he stated in a video seen below. Another vexing problem for Ruth is the coverage the issue has gotten from local  news, specifically News12, which is owned by CableVision who provides the  internet service to the cameras at the lights. When victims of the lights went to News12 about the deaths of their family  members due to the shortened lights, News12 interviewed them, but never ran  the story. And while other local media outlets report from Ruth’s point of view  and most of the public’s, News12 has painted Ruth a criminal. When the news failed to investigate some of the deaths at intersections with  shortened lights, Ruth took his own camera to document the light-duration  times at the scene of the deaths. When he arrived, he recorded a light-duration  of three seconds at an intersection where it was previously five seconds. “I saw the crosses and thought I was in the right place.” However, when he determined he was actually at the wrong location, he went to  the correct location the following day and found the same thing, again – a light  shortened from five seconds to three where a person was killed. Ruth’s energy and persistence on social media and news media have gained the  yellow light issue local support and he’s spoken on behalf of victim’s families to  representatives urging them to discontinue the program. His supporters consist  of a variety of groups from judges to cops to just about everyone in Suffolk  County. Meanwhile, Ruth’s support seems to be growing everywhere but the U.S., where  it has remained mostly specific to Suffolk County.  He posted a screen shot on  his Facebook page of folks from England calling him a “hero” and saying they  “idolize” him. “I’m even getting messages from Australia,” Ruth told  PINAC. When asked if he was afraid of the possibility of jail  he said, “I’m willing to go to jail for doing what’s right.” Ruth said one of his hero’s is MLK, who he shares a birthday with on January 15. “You gotta love a guy like that. He was willing to go to jail to do what’s right.” “I’m just trying to save lives. I spend Christmases delivering flowers to the  cemetery, because nobody wants to work on Christmas. I get orders from all  around the world from people ordering flowers to put on graves. I take my son  and tell him to note the ages of the people who died fighting for our country.  And they come back to this?” So we asked what he’d like to see come from risking his own life and freedom to  save the lives of others and expose the traffic light scandal. “I want people to go to jail.” Ironically, at this point in time, Stephen Ruth is the only person facing jail time  for “crimes” related to the Suffolk County yellow light scandal. : New York Man Arrested for Cutting Wires to Red Light Cameras After Exposing Government Revenue Generating Scheme BEN KELLER wecanalldobetter: thecheshirecass: untilstarsfall: nabyss: killbenedictcumberbatch: sambolic: westernsocietyfucked100years: cointelpro-plant: Man found the stoplight cameras were activated during yellow lights and decided to cut the wires of it. hero STOP SCROLLING!!!

You got nothing. And if you don’t like it, tough titties. I love you, Cards Against Humanity” I was one of the 100 to get the check from these folks, and holy shit I was CACKLING at the hurt people on Facebook. Some people only cared about their precious $15 when it helped the poor. Congrats! I’m thrilled that some of my $$$ went to people who needed it.  This is actually kinda sketchy. If they had more than 17,000 people participate, they start turning a profit (you need around 7,000 “donators” to give 100 people $1,000USD, and then 10,000 people to get their $15USD refund). They got 150,000 people to donate. That means they made around 2 million dollars USD in profit. Since they are NOT a charity organization, they have no responsibility to inform the public of what they’re spending that money on, and how much gets fed into pockets of their own bigwigs.  I repeat, this is a mega, MEGA sketchy scheme that relies on the good-will of others and their own branding as a quirky company to possibly turn a massive profit, and it gave them free advertising through social media and news media. I’m glad some of it went to people who needed it; but the fact that around 4% of the proceeds went into those checks went to the donations/gifts, and a total of 11% was either returned or gifted. 89% of it went into CAH’s pockets should be a significant wake-up call as to the real intent behind this.  Lmao way to get capitalized on Socialists getting fooled by fake wokers TBH it’s not a good idea to give money to companies that haven’t been rated by Charity Navigator. CAH is stealing, using #wokeness as a shield, and the gullible are falling for it. You’re all fucking dumbasses. Nobody “donated” to CAH for this promotion you fuckwads, people paid $15 to be a part of it and get whatever surprises they threw at customers. The amount of people in the notes who have no fucking idea about what this promotion was or how it was marketed acting like CAH is some false charity is fucking astonishing ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Seriously the amount of people on this post fundamentally misunderstanding the whole concept of the CAH holiday event and thinking I and the other people who bought it got duped is ridiculous.  We didn’t donate the money, you dopes. We bought a product that we knew would would make us laugh our assess off and CAH delivered while also doing some nice stuff for other people.  Fuckin’ hell.  Also, THIS isn’t the only part of the holiday event. Everyone’s $15 also paid for: Day 1: they bought a piece of land along the border and hired a public domain lawyer, just to slow down Trumps wall. Day 2: the good news podcast, production, and all of the stickers/posters for it Day 3: the Wealth Distribution Day 4: they paid for a shit ton of Donor’s Choose projects for teachers. Day 5: they ran “pulse of the nation ” polling. So of course not ALL the money went towards JUST day 3.

To see how this $1,000 is impacting these peoples lives, read their stories at CardsAgainstHumanityRedistributesYourWealth.com. The next 10,000 poorest recipients got a $15 refund check. You got nothing. And if you don’t like it, tough titties. I love you, Cards Against Humanity” I was one of the 100 to get the check from these folks, and holy shit I was CACKLING at the hurt people on Facebook. Some people only cared about their precious $15 when it helped the poor. Congrats! I’m thrilled that some of my $$$ went to people who needed it.  This is actually kinda sketchy. If they had more than 17,000 people participate, they start turning a profit (you need around 7,000 “donators” to give 100 people $1,000USD, and then 10,000 people to get their $15USD refund). They got 150,000 people to donate. That means they made around 2 million dollars USD in profit. Since they are NOT a charity organization, they have no responsibility to inform the public of what they’re spending that money on, and how much gets fed into pockets of their own bigwigs.  I repeat, this is a mega, MEGA sketchy scheme that relies on the good-will of others and their own branding as a quirky company to possibly turn a massive profit, and it gave them free advertising through social media and news media. I’m glad some of it went to people who needed it; but the fact that around 4% of the proceeds went into those checks went to the donations/gifts, and a total of 11% was either returned or gifted. 89% of it went into CAH’s pockets should be a significant wake-up call as to the real intent behind this.  Lmao way to get capitalized on Socialists getting fooled by fake wokers TBH it’s not a good idea to give money to companies that haven’t been rated by Charity Navigator. CAH is stealing, using #wokeness as a shield, and the gullible are falling for it. You’re all fucking dumbasses. Nobody “donated” to CAH for this promotion you fuckwads, people paid $15 to be a part of it and get whatever surprises they threw at customers. The amount of people in the notes who have no fucking idea about what this promotion was or how it was marketed acting like CAH is some false charity is fucking astonishing ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Seriously the amount of people on this post fundamentally misunderstanding the whole concept of the CAH holiday event and thinking I and the other people who bought it got duped is ridiculous.  We didn’t donate the money, you dopes. We bought a product that we knew would would make us laugh our assess off and CAH delivered while also doing some nice stuff for other people.  Fuckin’ hell.  Also, THIS isn’t the only part of the holiday event. Everyone’s $15 also paid for: Day 1: they bought a piece of land along the border and hired a public domain lawyer, just to slow down Trumps wall. Day 2: the good news podcast, production, and all of the stickers/posters for it Day 3: the Wealth Distribution Day 4: they paid for a shit ton of Donor’s Choose projects for teachers. Day 5: they ran “pulse of the nation ” polling. So of course not ALL the money went towards JUST day 3. That was never the plan?!
