For Immediate Release

ALERT 3:45 PM / Phoenix: BlackBerry caves to law breaking lawmakers, REMOVES Phantom Alert app from BlackBerry App World.
ACTION REQUESTED: Call BlackBerry Corporate NOW at 877-255-2377 and remind them who they work for,  and that censorship in a free society is unacceptable. Please RT #boycottRIM and start pushing this viral.

It has come to our attention that a collective of four U.S. Senators have decided to overstep their constitutional restraints and trample on the First Amendment by attempting to coerce Apple into dropping applications that report in real-time the location of law enforcement (or pseudo-law enforcement) activities around the world.

These apps are the modern day equivalent of flashing one’s headlamps at other drivers to warn of nefarious speed traps.

Instead of taking us down the road to an all-out police state, perhaps these lawmakers should question the legality of the alarming proliferation of internal checkpoints being deployed nationwide, including the terrible abuses of civil rights being demonstrated on a daily basis by Janet Napolitano’s “Domestic Surveillance Squad,” including but not limited to the TSA, Customs and Border Protection, and the United States Border Patrol; as well as Janet Napolitano’s personal connections with private, quasi-policing agencies such as Redflex and American Traffic Solutions.

During her reign as governor, Ms. Napolitano virtually deputized an entire, for-profit foreign corporation to patrol the highways of the State of Arizona, in vehicles marked as the State’s top policing agency, the Arizona Department of Public Safety. This disastrous program boldly attempted to capitalize on speeding as a form of state funding and track driver’s whereabouts utilizing automatic license plate recognition (ALPR).

Photo Enforcement Related Racism? Video Released

September 22, 2008

CameraFRAUD.com has released a video (see on Youtube) provided by an east-valley family which alleges possible racism on the part of a process server who was apparently trying to serve a Redflex-generated photo enforcement citation. (Technical Note: Youtube butchered the quality of the video. We’ll try to get the higher resolution version uploaded ASAP.)

The family, some of whom are veterans of the United States Armed Forces, contacted CameraFRAUD.com after the incident was captured. The video shows a process server exiting his vehicle to throw an unidentified piece of crumpled paper on the ground. The man returns to a burgundy-colored vehicle which lurches forward (and possibly towards a child in the street.)  The man is heard yelling a racial slur as he sped off down a residential drive.

CameraFRAUD.com issued the the following statement on Friday:

“Just in the past six months, private photo enforcement companies have been found to violate state laws repeatedly. As if the recent arrest of a drunk photo radar van driver wasn’t enough of an insult to the people of Arizona, now it looks like Redflex and their associated companies may be using racist intimidation methods,” said a CameraFRAUD.com volunteer in a prepared statement.

CameraFRAUD.com has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday to address the revelation of the video. Members of the community are welcome to attend and express their support for the family involved in this incident. (Please RSVP on our Meetup site).

WHEN: Tuesday, September 23rd at 1:00 PM
WHERE: Arizona State Capitol, 1700 W Washington St, Phoenix, AZ


Press Release: CameraFRAUD.com Press Conference and Rally

September 19, 2008

CameraFRAUD.com has announced a press conference and public rally in response to recent revelations regarding a video showing a photo radar process server using a derogatory racial slur while interacting with a member of the community.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 23rd at 1:00 PM
WHERE: Arizona State Capitol, 1700 W Washington St, Phoenix, AZ

The video allegedly shows a process server yelling “you’re a f—ing wetb—, go back to Mexico” after attempting to serve an individual with a Redflex-generated photo enforcement citation. The video shows that the family’s children were present during the slur. The video will be released prior to Tuesday.

“Just in the past six months, private photo enforcement companies have been found to violate state laws repeatedly. As if the recent arrest of a drunk photo radar van driver wasn’t enough of an insult to the people of Arizona, now it looks like Redflex and their associated companies may be using racist intimidation methods,” said a CameraFRAUD.com volunteer in a prepared statement.

“This Governor and the Department of Public Safety want to reward these same companies with multi-million dollar contracts to place hundreds more of these cameras around the state with the primary mission of raising revenue.”
