Idaho Photographer Arrested for ‘Public Voyeurism’ for Filming FBI Office

An Idaho man says police violated his First Amendment rights by arresting him for recording video outside of an FBI office.

“I stopped directly across the street and filmed vehicles entering the FBI complex for approximately 10 minutes before a police car drove up behind me,” Sean Johnson wrote to KIFI/KIDK reporter Chris Oswalt in an email. “I was standing on the sidewalk across the street from the complex, near a bus stop. I was just standing there filming, not saying anything to anyone, nor waving my arms around or otherwise causing a commotion.” 

Johnson was approached by an officer who claimed the cameraman was violating the state’s public voyeurism law by recording people without permission. But that law refers to sex crimes.

All federal employees in 2010 were given a three-page memo that states, “Remember the public has the right to photograph the exterior of Federal Buildings from publicly accessible spaces, such as streets, sidewalks, parks or plazas.”

Federal courts have protected the rights of people to photograph and video-record from public space.

“I was taken to jail and held for 15 hours until I paid my bail of $300 directly from my own account,” Johnson wrote in his email. “I have since retained an attorney and the expectation is that the charge of ‘obstruction and delay’ will be dropped by the prosecutor.”

A Florida truck driver was arrested Sunday after a Walmart security guard discovered nearly 40 people packed into a sweltering tractor trailer parked outside of a Walmart in San Antonio, Texas.

Nine of the people died and more than a dozen others suffered life-threatening injuries in what authorities are describing as a “horrific” case of human trafficking, the Washington Post reports

The driver, James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater, Fla., is expected to be charged as early as Monday.

The people were discovered at 12:30 a.m. Sunday by a Walmart security guard who was tipped off that immigrants appeared to be inside a tractor trailer in the parking lot.

San Antonio police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Salame said the case is being handled by ICE because of suspected international smuggling.

“They have to be turned over to the custody of somebody,” he told the Post. “They don’t have anywhere else to go.”

The Senate Intelligence Committee will privately question senior White House Jared Kushner on Monday as congressional investigators examine claims that President Trump’s campaign team colluded with Russia to influence the presidential election.

Kushner, the son-in-law of Trump, also is scheduled to meet behind closed doors for questioning by the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday.

The committees also are planning to question Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort after negotiating with the men’s attorneys information and a date.

Some lawyers question the wisdom of answering questions that can be used in a future criminal case.

“It’s a very difficult tightrope to walk,’’ said Justin Dillon, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice. “He has to balance the political fallout from taking the Fifth Amendment with the potential criminal fallout of talking.’’

Trump Doubts Evidence of Russian Hacking Based on Misunderstanding with U.S. Spies

President Trump doesn’t believe there’s ample evidence to prove Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee because Kremlin operatives would have never been caught.

That’s what Trump’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, told CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday. 

“He basically said to me, ‘Hey you know, maybe they did it, maybe they didn’t do it,'” Scaramucci told a skeptical Tapper.

Scaramucci said Trump called him from Air Force One on Saturday and told “me yesterday that if the Russians actually hacked this situation, and spilled out those emails, you would’ve never seen it, you would’ve never had any evidence of that.”

But what Scaramucci appears to misunderstand is that intelligence experts have determined Russian operatives wanted it known that they were behind the cyberattack.

During a House Intelligence Committee hearing in March, former FBI director James Comey said, “Their loudness, in a way, would be counting on us to amplify it by telling the American people what we saw and freaking people out about how the Russians might be undermining our elections successfully.”

A North Carolina man is selling a 1980s-era FBI surveillance van on eBay.

Ginger Senfeldas said he bought the 1989 Dodge Ram 350 on a government auction website.

The van has custom features, including a toilet, extra 12-volt vehicle batteries, TV monitors, video recording equipment and hidden microphones on the exterior, CBS News reports

“We found out that there’s microphones as we took the side markers out of the van, and there’s microphones hidden in headlights and taillights. That’s why there’s little holes everywhere,” he said.

Senfeldas said there also were handcuffs, binoculars and leftover video from an old stakeout.

The auction on eBay , which ends Monday, reached more than $16,000 over the weekend.
