The FBI Owes Me An Apology

Published On November 11, 2012 | By CopBlock | Articles, Videos

My name is Randy Stroud, and I love to CopBlock the government in general. I mainly do this through fighting traffic tickets, and asking government officials questions about the constitution and law. A few weeks back, I had written a letter to John Walker Lindh and to the US District Attorney. In these letters, I criticized US Foreign policy, and cited examples where our government and our CIA departments have contributed to terrorism.

I asked in the letter to the District Attorney how it would be possible to convict George Bush, Bill Clinton, and President Obama of war crimes, and for violating their OWN laws, such as the Patriot Act and the NDAA. Since we can be so easily charged for terrorism, why are the politicians exempt when they give foreign aid to known terrorists?

These letters have resulted in the FBI coming to my work place, asking questions about me, and has resulted in my reputation being dragged through the dirt. The FBI also called my phone and asked if I would submit myself to an interrogation. I feel like I am being harassed. I am asking CopBlock and its members to Flood the phone lines of the Nashville FBI offices, telling them

“FREE SPEECH IS NOT A CRIME.” In these letters, I never made threats to any people or property. They simply do not enjoy having their hypocrisy exposed.

Please participate in the phone flood, and help get the FBI off my case!

    Well Randy, from my perspective it sure likes you picked this fight, and now that you’ve got it, you are whining about it.

    That’s the thing about you big, tough, Cop Blocker dudes. You are all big words when you are hiding behind your keyboards or standing behind some barricade yelling insults at a cop who has his hands full at some scene and can’t do anything in response.

    Why don’t you ever get your tough Cop Blocker thing on with a cop who is just hanging somewhere with nothing happening? Why? Because you are scared of what might happen, that’s why.

    Randy, you poked a stick at a hornet’s nest and now you are whining about getting stung. Man up and grow up.

  • John Q Public

    Amen Buford. What did Randy expect? Of course its obvious he hasn’t read the NDAA. There is a new NDAA that comes out every year. Bush was successfully sued over the 2006 NDAA which would have given him wide power to suspend Habeus Corpus. What a whiner. If the government is so corrupt and bad, why didn’t Randy just get disappeared? You guys can start call flooding the FBI if you want to. I don’t see much good coming from that and it’ll just show how crazy you guys are. Then the FBI will be knocking on your doors too. I’d like to see a copy of the letters Randy sent. Besides, a district attorney can’t do anything to the federal government. Its the US Attorney General or Congress that has to act. Get over your self.

    You do know this is Veterans Day right??

    I think you owe all our service members and family’s that lost loved ones an apology. I don’t agree with the war but I support the troops 110%.

    “Why don’t you ever get your tough Cop Blocker thing on with a cop who is just hanging somewhere with nothing happening? Why? Because you are scared of what might happen, that’s why.”

    What would happen BTJ? These are the things I need to know.

  • Common Sense

    Randy is another McVeigh…

    You might just as well CC all your emails to the FBI, save them the time from packet trapping them.

  • Common Sense

    I got you covered Randy, I just spoke to the SA in charge of the TN field office, he said on behalf of the FBI, they are really, really, really sorry. He mentioned something about an edible fruit basket but I said you’d be good with his apology.

  • Nod

    You turned down a fruit basket? Wow. These guys really are right about you Common. Only the worst kind of human being would turn down a fruit basket.

  • Pep

    Buford is perfectly comfortable attacking Stroud but lacks the moral integrity to challenge injustice like Stroud has done. Why would anybody think apologizing for these persecutory violations by the government made them sound tough or reasonable?

    If Stroud is scared, he would have good reason to be because the actions of the FBI pose a serious threat to his freedom, health and livelihood. Asking for support against unjust behavior is not ‘whining’. Buford doesn’t get that because he doesn’t appreciate what the constitution actually stands for, nor does he posses a basic respect for peaceful individuals challenging politicians who are in the wrong even by their own oaths, let alone ethically challenged pathos. Writing letters to bureaucrats to have them uphold laws against torture and murder by corrupt politicians is a ‘working within the system to seek change’ kind of action. Why do you loathe that so much?

    John Q apparently believes you have no right to complain unless you are disappeared. It’s a bit late to publicize injustice at that point, isn’t it? What other brilliant ideas do you have about kneeling to the crown here?

  • Common Sense

    @nod

    I suppose you’re correct, I will have to call back – ha ha ha

    What individuals like Randy Stroud and others fail to comprehend, to their detriment, is that the FBI is the most corrupt, Fascist, and utterly irredeemable federal agency in the nation. The possible exception being the CIA, but to an extent, we can expect the CIA to do the things it does.

    Regardless, Randy needs to understand that the FBI is wholly dedicated to the destruction of the U.S. Constitution, and all those that support it. The more you support the Constitution, the harder the FBI will work to destroy you.

    So here is my suggestion to you, Randy. Granted, I may be a lowly private investigator, but I have taken a large federal agency into Federal court and walked away with a settlement check, so I know how these clowns like to play. Start your research by studying the formation and rise of the Italian Camicie Nere (Blackshirt Fascists) and German Sturm Ableitung (Brownshirt Fascists) prior to World War 2. Once you have a grip on those two groups, you will understand the general motivations of the FBI.

    Then, begin to research the FBI’s early efforts at suppressing political dissidents here in America by researching COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program). With that, you will have a general understanding of FBI tactics. It is likely that you are already the subject of COINTELPRO style attacks if the FBI has shown up at your place of employment.

    Although there is a 99.99% chance that Randy will either never read this comment, or ignore it if he does, maybe some day in the future he or others will remember it. Till then, all that remains is for common sense of any of his alter egos to say something stupid yet amusing in response.

    This guy needs to be thrown in the shoe.

  • Steve H.

    We need camps where we can put these white idiots, like maybe we can convince the Federal Government to use the Federal Emergency Management Agency to set up detention camps to put people like this in them and then chemically castrate them so that they can’t reproduce any other zombie like walkers like this.

  • Randy Stroud

    I am not “whining”. How many of you have the balls to hold your representatives accountable? All I did was write a letter asking why the President and other government officials are exempt from behavior, that would otherwise have normal citizens in jail. Our government has sent billions to the Muslim Brotherhood, sent foreign aid to the Taliban, detained and tortured hundreds of innocent people whom were never given a trial.

    You call me a “whiner” and I need to “man up”? How many of you have foughten your traffic ticket tickets? (which are basically ways to extort money from us for victimless crimes). How many letters have you hand written to the government? This is why America will fall. Those who obey the system are called “good americans.” While those of us who try to hold our officials accountable are called “cowards” or “unpatriotic”

    For all of you who call me a whiner, complainer, or coward. I say , YOU are the cowards. If more people had the balls to ask the tough questions, maybe, just maybe, our Republic of the United States would be on the verge of becoming an orwellian dictatorship ran by a monopolized party system.

    Shame on those who criticize me. Thomas Jefferson said, “Dissent is the greatest form of patriotism”

    The FBI should be using our tax dollars and time to hunt down rapists and killers, not men who write letters asking questions.

    The FBI is STILL calling my phone and harrassing me. For what? Writing a stupid letter that asks some simple questions. I guess in this backwards world, those who obey are called “heroes”, and those who question and speak out are called “cowards”

    Have fun with Romney and Obama, who supported the bailouts, assassinations of two american citizens without trial, and the destruction of our civil liberties and our constitution.

    If asking questions, and trying to hold government accountable makes you a coward……..then I guess Iam the proudest coward on earth.

    I hope other liberty minded people will call the FBI and tell them that free-speech is not a reason to waste tax-dollars. Especially when no threats of violence are made.

  • El Jefe

    Well if you boot lickers would ever have enough sense to see that noone can compete with the monopoly. Kudos to Stroud, a real person, not some droided out tyrannical mind slave. Merrrrica woo hoo!

  • Sammy316

    This seems like a huge waste of time in my opinion. But if this is what you want to do, then more power to ya.
    This isn’t blocking or holding anyone accountable, it is bringing attention onto yourself.
    Buford, Common, and John Q. are troglodytic trolls that do nothing to further discussion, but they can read a calender, so there’s that.

  • JT

    Once again someone didn’t do the right preparation. May I suggest if you are going to go taking on city hall that you read and learn tricks and tactic to make it very tough for them to have anything on you, and to make it look like they are wasting their time.

    If and I say IF I was to become really politically active I’d take the course of Hasan Elahi and for 1 to 2 years do as he has, as well as include monthly urine tests (would make a wrong door raid for drugs look stupid), and get physically fit just encase they decide to give you a little tune up for your troubles.

    Hasan Elahi’s T.E.D presentation, he’s wrong about the photography, but take note.

    I like the concept of monthly drug testing. I will look into this Hasan Elahi guy. Thanks JT.

  • deepelemblues

    Oh yes, I’m sure you, Randy Stroud, calmly and rationally explained your position that Americans are the real terrorists and war criminals, and I am equally sure there were absolutely no hysterically self-righteous and inflammatory comments in your undoubtedly professional inquiries about the Constitution and law. The FBI has nothing better to do than harass 20-something nobody children playing at being serious adults with very very serious talking points straight from the KGB propaganda handbook circa 1948.

  • Steve H.

    Randy, you are the reason for the FEMA camps, people like you convince bureaucrats to erect facilities for wacked out white trailer living conspirators like you. I may have to be processed in there with you, but I’m not going to be your litte puta.

  • http://www.policemisconduct.net Glenn

    Boy this story really has the snitch trolls ties up in knots. Maybe there should be more stories of FBI incompetence and corruption?

  • t.

    Now let me get this straight….
    You want to harass and waste the time of some poor DA by writing him a stupid letter that slanders and defames people with no proof of your claims….
    But when the FBI calls you, and asks to speak to you, its harassment?

    M.F.’er please.

    YOU want to talk to them, demand answer, agree to go and talk to them. Man up big guy.

  • Dr Kranknstein

    Holy fucktarded moron…who in the hell would actually send these letters to a government agency if you were not looking for this kind of a response. If you were looking for this response then do not post shit saying I want an apology. If you weren’t well, you are just fucking dumb and need to spend a little more time thinking before acting.. You are lucky this is the only response you got, normally any mention of a president’s name gets the Secret Service involved. Fucking moron lay off the pipe.

  • Freedom

    Wow Randy, your actions sure have the cowardly boot licking prostate sucking fascist state lovers out in droves, huh?

    Odd that people that seem to be Americans think that harassment of a US citizen for questioning our government actions (right to redress and right to free speech) SHOULD trigger police state tactics of harassment, and we should all be OK with that.

    It is sad to see we have so many cowardly fucktards, like Buford, deeple, t and Dr, just ready to clean the colon of what ever government official tells them to get down on their knees to tongue their anus.

    As for proof, hey fucktards, crack a book and read some news. We have been arming and funding third world terrorists for decades. If you can’t do your own research when you have access to a computer and the internet, your lack of braincells and reading comprehension does not at all impress anyone who has put even the most minor amount of effort into fact finding.

    It saddens me I wasted four years of my life as an Army Ranger to risk it all to “protect” these dripping piles of gelatinous crap and protect their rights, when they would happily give them up for the chance to suck on a government officials balls for awhile.

  • Steve

    I totally agree with Stroud. This country was built on radicalism and questioning of authority (i.e., government). He has the right to send letters…it’s not an issue of WHY he did it…it’s an issue of why he is being harassed for engaging in a peaceful act. If I were him and the FBI called me to ask if they could interrogate me, I would say “go fuck yourself.”

  • Dr Kranknstein

    Yeah and I am calling BULLSHIT Freedom…4 years as a Ranger? the minimum enlistment with an Option 40 contract is 8×4 years(8 active, 4 inactive). Option 40 allows for Basic, Air Assault, Airborne, RIP Ranger INDOC then once you get to the Regiment the real training begins. That alone is close to 13 months of training. Even if you did time then went to Ranger INDOC to get your tab and not stayed with the Regiment you would have been in the Army longer than 4 years. So once again BULLSHIT.

  • BustdaMatrix

    Shame on you Randy for questioning the delusion of authority. Everyone knows the same rules or even morality do not apply to the psychopaths who weld power as to the peasant class. I suspect that is why you had a little visit by the stazi to put the fear back into you. As Cartman would say, “Respect my Authoratay”!!

  • S

    RANDY, YOU ARE CORRECT. IT IS GETTING MORE CORRUPT BUT I BELIEVE THAT IT IS NOT THE FBI OR OUR GOVERNMENT THAT IS THE CULPRITS BUT PEOPLE WHO ARE SO DESPERATE AS NOT TO GET CAUGHT IN THEIR OWN CORRUPTION. I AM TOLD I AM BEING HARASSED BY THE FBI. AGAIN, IT IS NOT THE FBI BUT A FEW CORRUPT POLICE WHO ARE INVOLVED WITH SOME HORRIFIC ABUSES. MY EVERY CIVIL RIGHT IS BEING ATTACKED THEY WON’T EVEN ALLOW ME TO WORK IN PEACE. I CAN’T MAKE ANY MONEY TO SUSTAIN MY CHILDREN AND I. PAY MY DEBTS ETC. BOTTOM LINE UNTIL THE PEOPLE STAND UP AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER THEN IT IS GOING TO GET WORSE, MORE OVER ON A MORE REALISTIC NOTE. YOU JUST CAN’T FIGHT THEM. I TRIED FILING MANY LAW SUITS IN THE STATE OF I’LL. TOLD THEY WOULD VIOLATE MY RIGHTS AND NOT ALLOW THE SUITS. WELL THEY DID JUST THAT. I WAS TOLD THE WOULD ATTACK ME IN THE HOSPITAL WITH BACK SURGERY VIOLATING MY HIPPA RIGHTS THEY DID. I HAVE VIDEO FOOTAGE OF THAT. I HAVE HAD MANY DEATH THREATS STATING THEY WORK FOR THE FEDS AND ARE HIT MEN FOR THE FEDS. COME ON GET REAL. WHY WOULD MY LIFE BE THREATENED? I NOW HAVE THAT EVIDENCE. I KEEP REPORTING THIS TERRORIST ATTACK TO WASHINGTO D.C HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL LISTEN AND MAKE THESE THUGS PAY MY CHILDREN AND I BACK FOR EVERYTHING WE HAVE LOST AND MORE. PROTECTION.
