The Tacoma Mall (WA) and its military recruitment center will come under heavy assault Tomorrow ,Sat the 15th by anti-war / anti-military activist who are vowing to stop commerce at the mall and harass soldiers and their families shopping there. These thugs are even being told to look for cars in the mall parking lot with Ft Lewis, and McChord AFB stickers on them.

Please, Please, Please if you are within driving distance of Tacoma show up to support the troops and send these rats back to Olympia and Seattle with their rat tails between their legs. The anti-war protest begins at 12:30, we need to be there earlier. One Support the Troops group is reporting in front of the USMC recruiters office. Hope to see you there.

Washington has been targeted before:

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON


SPOKANE RECRUITING CENTER VANDALIZED

Anti-military activists discuss the KXLY TV-4 report, “Spokane: Grand jury indicts anarchist over recruiting station vandalism.” The discussion takes place at Infoshop.org – CLICK HERE TO VIEW IT.
One individual says:  “the proper response to this is for people to vandalize more recruiting stations.”

Other comments concern how individuals can take actions to avoid being caught attacking recruiting centers.

And another individual admonishes:  “Never admit to anything ever, make them have to form their case. Completely. No plea deals. No coping up. Period.”

The proper response to this is for people to vandalize more recruiting stations. It’s important to stand up to the authorities and show them that we will not be intimidated.

On a more practical note, I think our movement needs to have a more prominent discussion about how to engage in actions and not get caught. NOBODY should ever post anything to their MySpace page that shows evidence of ANY crime. If you have to post photos to the Internet, post them to a third party site like Indymedia. It also sounds like people shouldn’t upload photos directly from their cameras. Perhaps scan and photocopy photos. Better yet, DON’T TAKE PICTURES. It’s not vital that evidence of your action be recorded for the world to see.

And please people, don’t be a dumbass and tag “ELF” at the scene of some action. That will only worsen your prison time if you get caught. Nobody has to know WHO did an action. Please, please get over the idea that a name has to be attached to an action. The action will speak for itself.

I can’t believe how sloppy these guys are! Geez! I mean, think about it, there are at least a dozen ways they could’ve averted the situaton. Merely removing the IPTC data in the pictures would’ve resulted in a second level of plausible deniablity (the fingerprints alone would not have been enough to jail them, period; they had to get a warrent to get more information for that very reason). And simply wearing gloves would’ve prevented any leads from even existing. Never admit to anything ever, make them have to form their case. Completely. No plea deals. No coping up. Period.

Authored by: Why on Saturday, August 25 2007 @ 08:20 PM PDT
Use something like XnView and go to Edit -> Metadata -> Remove EXIF data, then -> Edit -> Metadata -> Remove IPTC data. That’s how I do it with my current program. You can also just do a batch “reencode” of the file which will remove the IPTC/EXIF data automagically. Also, changing the date on the files to something weird can be useful.

What strikes me here is the failure to understand the technologies that were being used. Metadata will absolutely be enough evidence to tie you to a particular .jpg file, especially if you own the camera in question. So even if you were to delete the files after uploading them, it’s irrelevant. Please people, understand the technology you’re utilizing and be sure to cover your tracks in every way possible.

While I think the mistakes that were made SHOULD BE analyzed and discussed, and prevented from occuring again, I do think people should really support people that do such actions, regardless of the ‘stupid mistakes’ that were made. And to prove how to pull it off without mistakes, people should, in solidarity, duplicate the actions in their own towns and show how it could be done and gotten away with.
How about that?

Authored by: crudo on Sunday, August 26 2007 @ 07:45 PM PDT
I think alot of young anarchists really need to take heed to this. Think you can’t go to jail really easy if you are careless and don’t plan, and use secruity culture, think again.

Couple thoughts on how this could all be avoided:

1.) Don’t leave evidence behind.
2.) Don’t leave finger prints.
3.) Don’t talk about illegal shit in your home, car, or anywhere else where the FBI may be recording. Turn your cell phone off, because it might be used as a listening device.
4.) Don’t talk about who you thought did other illegal actions, ever.
5.) Don’t post pictures of illegal stuff that can connect you with them.
6.) Don’t have evidence at your home. Get rid of it.
7.) Don’t go around spraying your group’s same around town and then expect go not get caught.

“Washington has been targeted before:”

And Evergreen State College where many of these seditious thugs are coming from in Olympia is far to the left of even the famed Berkley in CA. It may be a smaller campus but it has a much higher percentage of far far left student body and faculty.

“How will I know you? I’d like to say hi.”

Normally I bring my 6-year old son with me to the Support-Our-Troops rallies, and often my dog (a Shiba Inu), but this time because of the expected seditious behavior of the Protesters I will leave both of them at home. I'll be the guy with the flag - - - no wait, that aint gonna work. I'll be the dark hair, balding 40-something guy with a mustache with a flag in ether a red jacket or blue jacket if its raining.

I will combine my trip to Tacoma, with a visit with my Mother in a Gig Harbor Nursing home, so I should be in front of the USMC center from about noon to about 2:00. Do say Hi.

I think they need a promise of at least 5 codepinkos/worldcan't wait etc commies self-amusing themselves to come to an event.

If they would have only known they were gonna pull their stunts there, they would have been there to spin it in their favor.

The bad news about our Military being bombed and maimed by the MSM and progressive dem liberals' lackeys here in The United States of America isn't something they want spread around.

Great job MAF is doing!

From Michelle Malkin's blog - an email she received from Melanie Morgan, reporting on the MAF presser this morning:

=======================================================

You guys won’t believe the scene at the National Press Club today.

We at Move America Forward were releasing our investigative report on the nationwide plague of attacks against military recruiting centers. (The Sedition Report)

Congressman John Carter (co-sponsor of the Semper Fi Act) was there speaking. So too was Debbie Lee, mother of the 1st Navy Seal killed in Iraq.

Then, midway through the news conference, members of Code Pink, International ANSWER and Global Exchange start heckling, screaming, yelling.

They said our claims of improper actions by anti-war radicals were all lies, that the anti-military activists have been nothing but peaceful.

They tried to shout down our speakers, and when we asked for security to remove them they refused to go, resulting in the forced eviction by security - despite their efforts to physically resist being removed.

Congressman Carter was whisked out for his safety and then the anti-war radicals chased down Congressman Carter’s staff. Soon thereafter as I was walking to another appointment I found myself stalked by the radicals who pulled up in a car yelling obscenities at me for daring to report on their disgusting conduct.

These people proved our point today! They did exactly what we’ve accused them of doing at military recruiting centers when they storm in, occupy the office, halt the work of recruiters and refuse to leave.

What angers me most is that these people don’t stop there. They’ve planted bombs at recruiting centers (not just Times Square but St. Lous too!). They pumped eight rounds of gunfire into the Denver military recruiting center. They’ve set fire to recruiting centers in San Jose, CA and Asheville, NC.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The complete report - including citation where their supporters cheer on the acts of violence - and our new national ad campaign focusing on this issue are at the Move America Forward website: http://www.MoveAmericaForward.org

I’m attaching a photo of one of the anti-war radicals who stood up, stripped off his clothes to reveal a pink jacket, and began screaming down our speakers at the news conference.

Folks - we struck a nerve. These people DO NOT want their seditious behavior exposed. Well, that makes me even MORE determined to do just that, and I know it will have the same effect on you as well!

The Lefties are planning on protesting the recruiters in Hollywood, CA and Pittsburg, PA on Wednesday, the 19th. Tacoma, WA is scheduled for this weekend. I believe this ties-in with the National Anti-War Protest this Saturday.

Stand up for your recruiters! Show them that you support them by taking them sandwiches, pizza (Little Ceasars is preferable), soda, etc.

I was at the National Mall last year with the DC Chapter when the moonbats had their big march.

It was astonishing to see the affect 30 people with flags had on all the hippies walking by. They just couldn’t walk by, they had to stop and get into shouting matches with us.

There were a few scary moments; the park police did not do that great a job of keeping the two sides separated, and they were coming over onto our side of the barrier. No incidents, but lots of potential.

You’re gonna love this.

King 5 news this morning was talknig about the protests today in Tacoma, and pretty much implied that if there’s trouble today it will be because we showed up.

The reporter said that the protesters don’t bother the military, and the military doesn’t bother the protesters, so there’s only trouble when counterprotesters show up and that’s why the police are coming.

Nice.

You have got to be kidding me? Leave it to the news to make us the bad guys.
By the way a Tacoma Mall worker and military wife wrote me and said the story about the mall closing at noon is not true. This is another way the local news is trying to give victory to the protesters before the event even happens.

You are right, King 5 repeated the story at 8:04.

The protest spokeswomen said “they are there to shut down the recruitment center which prays on young kids and poor minorities and turns them into war criminals” How stupid can people be?

My husband and I are both retired military, and we haven’t had the urge to run into the streets screaming and shooting the neighbors for several months now. Our training must be wearing off.
