Kelly 222: Serco’s Medicated Patsy Patents, Dr. Drew’s Clinton Wagering Bridge, Con Air Marcy Shooters’ Buck
General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528
Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger
February 22, 2018
Please accept Brief 222 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s CAI private equity investors including the late General Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR and former director of Interneuron Pharmaceuticals, MGM Mirage, AOL and UTC and Yves Fortier, Rhodes Scholar and former Nortel director, who allegedly equipped patentee SWAT teams with Motorola’s Remote control and location system US6148196A for ‘player units’ and Shire Lab Inc.’s Oral pulsed dose drug delivery system US 6322819 B1 to deliver medicated and homicidal prisoners or students or adult citizens as patsies to false-flag or lone gunman exercises.
McConnell claims, that Haig used Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew, a former mentor of 8(a) protégés at Boeing Phantom Works, Northrop Grumman, TASC and ITT Exelis and expert on ITT Exelis Methods and systems for remote control of self-propelled vehicles US6640164B1, to integrate the Motorola system with the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) network which appears to have allowed Serco to pre-position medicated and homicidal prisoners for war-game exercises when the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) allegedly bet on body counts with Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A on 9/11.
McConnell claims that Dr. Drew used Kristine Marcy, McConnell’s sister and the founder of a USMS prisoner medical [drug] services program, the U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES) and Con Air (JPATS), to deliver a snuff film crew and medicated prisoners to the Toronto home of the late Barry Sherman, the chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc., and his wife Honey on December 15, 2017 and record their times of death with Tencent (BVI) Limited’s Instant messaging [IM] system and method US 8566404 B.
McConnell further claims that since joining Boeing Phantom Works in 1996, Serco‘s Dr. Drew has been working with Kristine ‘Con Air’ Marcy and Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain, former FBI Executive Director – Investigations (SES-6) on the use of psychotropic drugs to induce homicidal ideation in prisoners and students to be deployed as patsies in false flag events as was allegedly the case with Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year old man on medication for ADHD, who shot and killed 17 students and staff members at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.
McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s Rothschild bankers?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (after McConnell told his Conair sister how to handle a prisoner mutiny by droning the aircraft) and saved them from a SMEAC* bombing event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with its body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on ground.
*Serco‘s digital fires instructors at USMC Base Camp Pendleton have allegedly corrupted the Marine Corps SMEAC briefing protocols into Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up!
McConnell claims that Marcy, Revell and Dr. Drew have been using Imagis Technologies’ face-recognition software embedded in Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) to track medicated patsies on the federal bridge and using Motorola’s system, Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A, FBI Virtual Command Centers and Law Enforcement Online networks, to block crime scene investigations into murder by patsies of victims selected to die by Serco‘s investment bankers (N M Rothschild & Sons) or Clinton Greek Life friends.
McConnell claims that Serco uses Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1 to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes including death pool wagering, money laundering, snuff films (cf. Starnet Pig Farm) and child pornography into Marcy’s DOJ Asset Forfeiture Funds and the accounts of junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock!) and players networked by the late General Haig.
With this 222nd Kelly public briefing, we have given ample opportunities for traitors and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Motorola, Boeing, ITT Exelis (WTC#7!), Shire and Tencent (BVI) Limited and the extorted participation in assassination or mass casualty events and we now ask you to have McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy and Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew questioned in re crimes involving the homicidal ideation of prisoners and students as patsies and have former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell charged in the appropriate court under 18 U.S.C. § 2382 – Misprision of treason or 18 U.S.C. § 1958 – Murder-for-hire.

“Stooge Time” for America. Florida School Killer Nikolas Cruz Diagnosed with Depression, Autism and ADHD
By Philip A Farruggio
Global Research, February 22, 2018
One recalls, when in the late 70s they rebroadcast the re-runs of The Three Stooges comedy show, aficionados of the show would shout out ‘It’s Stooge time!’ Well, sadly, after the latest school shooting in Florida, it is Stooge Time again. The February 19th USA TODAY, as mainstream a paper as one can find, carried this full page report by Brett Murphy ( relegated to Page 4 when it should have been on Page One) that covered the chain of actions and non actions by the state agencies, the Sheriffs Dept. and the FBI regarding the horrific actions of Nikolas Cruz. The article below is in part based on the information contained in the USA Today report.
We now know that Cruz was diagnosed with depression, autism and ADHD, and that he was cited for violence, fighting, assaults, profane language and insults at school at least 41 times from 2012-2017 by teachers, school officials and administrators. In May of 2016 a Florida Dept. of Children & Families investigator wrote “Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun” ( six months before he turned 18 and legally bought one) and “It is unknown what he is buying the gun for.”
Police have acknowledged to visiting his home dozens of times and there is no indication what actions, if any, the officers took. Of course, it is now public knowledge, while our fastidious FBI is ‘hot on the case’ of some Fat Cat Russians allegedly hacking into the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign (with, of most importance, revealing nothing but the TRUTH by the way) that they were called in January by a concerned citizen stating that Cruz stated his desire to kill people.
We now know, and the FBI has had to apologize after the murders that nothing was done about it…. No visits to Cruz and no interviews of him by the FBI. Going back to 2016, the Dept. of Children and Families investigator was told that Cruz was self mutilating himself, a reason that the Florida Baker Act Law could have been used to involuntarily get him mental health evaluation. At that same time, the investigator became concerned about Cruz’s talk about being depressed and wanting to purchase a gun. Oh boy!! Now here’s the kicker: The investigators for that department noted his mental health diagnoses and his expressions of hate such as Nazi symbols on his book bag alongside of a racial slur. When an investigator then went to visit Cruz at his home, there was no search to confirm those self mutilations because, to quote the investigator, “He was wearing long sleeves.”
The story gets more disgraceful. The school staff, doing their jobs, in October of 2016 called Henderson Behavioral Health in Broward County after learning that Cruz had self mutilated and had a fight with another student. It was noted that “Henderson’s mobile crisis unit had been called out to the school and determined that he was not at risk to harm himself or others.” The Henderson crisis clinician treating Cruz found him stable enough NOT to warrant hospitalization under that Florida Baker Act for people who pose a threat to themselves or others. By the way, according to the reporter, an administrator at Henderson declined to answer questions and hung up when contacted for an interview this past Sunday. Children and Families Department Secretary Mike Carroll said in a statement this past Saturday “Mental health services and supports were in place when this investigation closed.” Oh really Mike. Thanks goodness it wasn’t YOUR kids or grandkids in that school last week.
There is more to share the ‘Stooge time’ here folks. Let’s not let the police off the hook completely either. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said last week that his office received about 20 calls in the past few years about Cruz. That is not what some of the neighbors told the reporter. They felt that the number of 20 times over a few years was much too low. A few said that deputies were frequently parked at Cruz’s home, and one neighbor, Dave Brugman, called the Sheriff’s dept after seeing Cruz post online about buying guns just after his 18th birthday- around the same time as the Children and Families investigation. “They told us they checked it out”, Brugman said, and they added “You can’t watch him every day.”
So, we have an obvious mentally ill young man, for not months but years, who obviously needed continuous psychiatric treatment and close supervision. Here’s the final kicker. Yes, ALL those in positions that we the public rely on had failed. If that was because we lived in a society whereupon the cherished Safety Net was well funded and serviced by full staffing and lower caseloads, then the target of blame is obvious. Sadly, that is NOT the case, and of course NOT ever mentioned by the USA TODAY story. Look how many homeless folks walk the streets of ALL our towns? Doesn’t anyone connect the dots and realize that many of these folks are mentally ill and need institutional help? Of course, many of the others are low income folks from dysfunctional backgrounds, with little or no family or friends support. They are the ones who ‘fall through the rocks’ of this top heavy economic system we are submitted to live under. As far as the mentally ill homeless, I would say that if Nikolas Cruz did NOT use that gun and pull the trigger, he himself, with what little funding and staffing there currently is for the Safety Net, would be one of that army of the homeless walking the streets of Parkland.
Our states and their cities are broke!
The Military Industrial Empire makes sure that over HALF of your tax dollars goes down the rabbit hole for unnecessary military spending and phony wars and occupations, with our nearly 1000 bases in countries that DO NOT want us there! Children like NIkolas Cruz, who are mentally ill, will continue to be pushed along by agencies that don’t have the resources or staffing to really stop this madness… until the next trigger is pulled!

“Bernard Charles “Barry” Sherman, CM (February 25, 1942 – December 15, 2017) was a Canadian businessman and philanthropist who was chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc. With an estimated net worth of US$3.2 billion at the time of his death, according to Forbes, Sherman was the 12th-wealthiest Canadian. Another publication, Canadian Business, stated his fortune at $4.77 billion (CAD), ranking him the 15th richest in Canada. Sherman and his wife were murdered in their home by unknown assailants, according to Toronto Police who are still investigating the case.
Sherman was called “a deplorable human being” in reference to his business practices, by University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran who claimed that he gouged Canadians with high drug prices: “Canadians pay more for generic drugs than almost every other country. He sought to manipulate our system to enrich himself and impoverish Canadian patients who used his drugs”, he said. He accused Sherman of crossing intellectual property right ethical lines to “fight as many as 100 battles at a time in court to challenge drug patents and make way for Apotex’s generic prescriptions” with little end benefit to consumers. As told in Jeffrey Robinson’s 2001 book “Prescription Games: Money, Ego and Power Inside the Pharmaceutical Industry”, Sherman himself acknowledged the long-running conflict between Apotex and the major pharmaceutical companies over drug patents, saying “The branded drug companies hate us. They have private investigators on us all the time. The thought once came to my mind: why didn’t they just hire someone to knock me off?””
“The FDA Is Hiding Reports Linking Psych Drugs to Homicides
By Andrew Thibault
May 6, 2016
In my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined being drawn into a story of intrigue involving my own government’s efforts to hide, from the public, reports of psychiatric drugs associated with cases of murder, including homicides committed by youth on the drugs. But that is precisely the intrigue I now find myself enmeshed in.
The saga began several years ago. My child had the misfortune of being born during the last month of eligibility for kindergarten, and was subsequently labeled with A.D.H.D. – which stands for August Date Hikes Diagnosis. While other Americans with the same chronological impairment such as Man Ray and Robert Ringling managed to make something of themselves despite being born in the month of August, it seemed my child was doomed to failure from the get-go, unless provided lifesaving stimulant medication.
With an abiding uneasiness about both the alleged disorder and its miracle remedy, as they were presented to me, I set out to understand as much as I could about stimulant medications, prescribed disproportionately to the youngest children in the class.
It wasn’t long before I stumbled upon the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS), also referred to as MedWatch. The FDA publishes quarterly FAERS data files on its website containing hundreds of thousands of reports of various drug adverse events. Though unencrypted, the FAERS files might as well be, as the data appear hieroglyphic to the average person who is not a database expert, including myself at the time.
With the aid of the internet and with a lot of trial and error, I taught myself to write Structured Query Language (SQL) code to decipher the FAERS files. I first plumbed the depths of the adverse event data searching for reports of pediatric fatalities associated with stimulant medications, and found hundreds of them. Expanding my queries to include all psychotropic medications, I eventually identified nearly 2,000 pediatric fatalities. (More on the pediatric psychotropic fatalities in a future post.)
As I contemplated the gravity and the scale of the human tragedy, I began to wonder what drug side effects these children experienced at the time of their deaths. The FAERS data files yielded answers: cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, hepatoxicity, multi-organ failure, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome, completed suicide, homicide . . . Wait, what? Homicide, as a drug side effect? Then I saw it again: Murder.
The light bulb went off. I performed a query for homicide or murder as a drug side effect. To my astonishment, there were over 700 reports in FAERS of homicides linked to psychotropic medications.
Then, on April 12th of this year, the FDA presented a Vyvanse pediatric safety review to the Pediatric Advisory Committee. In advance of the meeting, the FDA’s “Pediatric Postmarketing Pharmacovigilance and Drug Utilization Review” was made public as part of the briefing materials posted on the agency’s website. The safety review contained a bombshell case narrative summary.
Case # 10213468, USA, 2014: A 3-month-old female infant was left alone with a babysitter’s 10-year-old daughter. Lisdexamfetamine was prescribed to the 10-year-old daughter of the babysitter; the 10-year old girl had ADHD, ODD, and attachment disorder. The infant sustained various injuries. The autopsy reported the cause of death was “asphyxia and suffocation,” as the result of “homicide.” Additionally, the infant’s blood contained traces of amphetamine (lisdexamfetamine).
In an appendix, I noticed that one of the FAERS reports that I had requested (10213469), which had been completely redacted, was only one digit off from the FAERS report quoted in the Vyvanse pediatric safety review, and was also listed as a duplicate report. And then I put one and one together: The FDA had represented to the Court handling my FOIA lawsuit that the case narrative of the FAERS homicide report I had requested—number 10213469—was exempt from disclosure under a FOI request for privacy reasons, yet now the FDA had publicly disclosed the case!
On April 13th, the day after the Pediatric Advisory Committee met and considered the FDA’s Vyvanse pediatric safety and drug utilization review, I fired off an email to the Assistant U.S. Attorney on the case, copying the FDA’s Assistant Chief Counsel, demanding a lesser-redacted version of FAERS report 10213469, pursuant to 21 CFR 20.81, since the agency had publicly released a summary of the case narrative of a duplicate report.
I figured that the FDA would now have to cough up the report.
The next day, on April 14th, Shire submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) for a chewable formulation of Vyvanse, as if following a script written long before the Pediatric Advisory Committee meeting. The company wrote in its press release that the Vyvanse chewable tablets are intended for patients “who may have difficulty swallowing or opening a capsule,” which is likely targeting very young children.
A day later, on April 15th, the Assistant U.S. attorney sent me an email, indicating that rather than provide me a lesser-redacted version of FAERS report 10213469, the FDA had instead decided to remove the case summary detailing the homicide from its drug safety review on its website. Just like that, Uncle Sam had covered up the homicide of a 3-month-old infant girl, by an amphetamine-addled child, as if the baby had never existed. Now you see the homicide, now you don’t.
Apparently, we can’t have a story made public about a 10-year-old girl on Vyvanse who forced the ADHD drug down a baby girl’s throat before suffocating her to death. That would be bad for business. Especially even as Vyvanse chewable tablets are being approved for the market.
There is one more part to this story of homicide linked to ADHD drugs. Earlier, after I had filed my FOIA lawsuit concerning the FAERS homicide cases, the FDA approved Adzenys XR-ODT, the first orally disintegrating amphetamine tablet approved for kids with ADHD. Without fanfare, a homicidal ideation warning was added to the label of Adzenys XR-ODT: “Anxiety, psychosis, hostility, aggression, suicidal or homicidal ideation have also been observed.”
Adzenys XR-ODT was approved as a bioequivalent of Adderall XR, another Shire-manufactured amphetamine drug that was formerly the most prescribed drug for ADHD prior to Vyvanse. Oddly, at this writing, Adderall XR does not have a homicidal ideation warning on its label, whereas its bioequivalent Adzenys XR-ODT does. I’ve emailed the FDA Division of Drug Information for an explanation of the inconsistent homicidal ideation label warnings for these bioequivalent drugs, and was told that a Subject Matter Expert (SME) had to be consulted before the agency could respond. Of similar interest, a homicidal ideation warning was added to the Vyvanse label as well.
“Expert blinding not determinative in ADDERALL XR prohibition application
21 APR 2016
by SCOTT BEESER
On April 7, 2016., Justice Locke released his Judgment and Reasons in a prohibition application involving Shire, Apotex and the latter’s proposed mixed amphetamine capsules. The patent at issue, Canadian Patent No. 2,348,090, is generally directed to a dosage form with specific pharmacokinetic properties. Claim 22 of the 090 Patent provides:
22. An oral pharmaceutical composition for delivery of one or more amphetamine base salts comprising an immediate release dosage form containing a first dosage amount of said one or more salts effective to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in a human patient, and a second dosage form containing a second dosage amount of said one or more salts effective to treat ADHD in a human patient which has a release onset lag time sufficient that the plasma concentration/time curve of said composition has substantially the same shape as that of Figure 7, adjusted proportionally for said first and second dosage amounts.
Expert Witness Blinding
Apotex citing the decisions in Apotex rasagiline, Apotex esomeprazole, Apotex ciclesonide, and Apotex gatifloxacin argued that their experts should be preferred over that of Shire because the former provided their evidence without having seen Apotex’s NOA, were never told of Apotex’ position and construed the 090 Patent without any information about the Apotex’s proposed product. Shire, on the other hand, citing Apotex tadalfil argued that the Court’s focus should be on the substance and of the expert’s evidence and not what information was available to them as they prepared their evidence.
Justice Locke agreed with both parties to some extent but held that the blinding of its experts in this case was not determinative. While the evidence of experts unaware of the features of the allegedly infringing product may be helpful in some circumstances, it has not risen to the level of a legal principle that must be applied in all cases.
Justice Locke’s decision largely turned on the proper construction of the asserted claims. Justice Locke preferred Apotex’s evidence for some claim terms and Shire’s evidence for others. One particularly challenging claim limitation was a plasma concentration/time curve which “is substantially the same as that of Figure 7”, since Figure 7 is in the form of a curve, not words. The issue between the parties was whether this similarity should be determined quantitatively by an objective, statistical method as suggested by Shire, or a by subjective, qualitative graphical criteria as suggested by Apotex. While acknowledging that that objective criteria in construing a patent claim is generally preferable, Justice Locke held, in the context of the 090, that substantial similarity should be based on the following five key characteristics of Figure 7 (shown on the left):
 Based on the hints from the 090 Patent (similarities to Figure 1 and differences from Figure 8), I see five key characteristics in Figure 7:
a) A first ascent (of about 3 hours);
b) A shoulder without descent (following the first ascent);
c) A second ascent (after the shoulder);
d) A sharp peak at about 7 hours (following the second ascent); and
e) A steady descent (after the peak).
Justice Locke, based on his construction of various claim elements, concluded that Apotex’s proposed capsules did not contain one or more essential elements from each of the asserted claims, such that Shire had failed to demonstrate that Apotex’s allegations of non-infringement were not justified. Having so found, Justice Locke held this he did not have to consider Apotex’s allegation of invalidity or that the claims need not be addressed under the Regulations.
A copy of justice Locke’s Judgment and Reasons may be found here.”

“Remote control and location system US6148196A
A system for transmitting instructions from a master control facility (50) to a number of remotely located player units (11-14). The remotely located player units communicate through a mobile cell site (10). Cellular communication links (16) are provided to link the remote units (11-14) to cell site (10). Cell site (10) is linked to a satellite arrangement (20) via a communication link (21). The master control facility is linked to the satellite arrangement via communication link (23).
…. BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention pertains to communications systems and more particularly to remote control and location of elements in particular remote areas.
For monitoring and controlling elements and events from a remote area to a control center point-to-point fixed communications by wire line or radio frequency (RF) devices is employed. Data is often transmitted from the remote area to the control center where it is processed and displayed. Subsequently, commands for the elements or events may be transmitted back from the control center to the remote area via control devices on these point-to-point communications. Such conditions often required that control centers be located in proximity to the events and elements they were monitoring. Monitoring events and elements in many locations often required many control centers which may be linked through elaborate networks.
Examples of such systems with the above characteristics include military training ranges, prisoner monitoring, asset monitoring and police and fire coordination efforts. People participating in or controlling events or elements requiring monitoring for movement, etc. may include a communication device such as a radio for transmitting and receiving information from a control center or an RF activated device for monitoring the movement of elements.
The operation of such control centers are typically to gather information from sensors or personnel; process this information; and relay some command or activity back to the transmitting person or element. Often in fixed bounded areas it is highly desirable for the control center to know the location of the person or element to be instructed. For example, applying these requirements to the situations mentioned above may include the movement and monitoring of battle results for soldiers in a training range; location monitoring and control of prisoners; asset monitoring and management for transportation in warehouse operations; asset monitoring throughout movement; control of and coordination of police efforts at particular events and control of fire fighters in a coordinated effort to fight particular fires.
The greater the number of remote locations the control center has to monitor, the greater the problems of these communications. This is particularly true where events might happen worldwide and require common analysis and control.
Accordingly, it would be advantageous to have a common control center for monitoring, controlling and locating people and elements within particular bounded areas and provide a communication link for return instructions or commands.

“Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information
US 5699431 A
A method which allows implementation of the revocation of public-key certificates facilitates engineering of certificate revocation lists (CRLs). It solves the practical problem of CRLs potentially growing to unmanageable lengths by allowing CRLs to be segmented, based on size considerations or priority considerations related to revocation reasons. The method is used to distribute CRL information to users of certificate-based public-key systems. It is also applied more generally to update any field in a certificate by reference to a secondary source of authenticated information.

“Pansy Ho Chiu King, co-chairperson of Macau casino operator MGM China Holdings Ltd, said the firm would focus on the quality of its customers at the new property MGM Cotai (pictured), a casino resort built with facilities that can cater to “any sorts of events”. Ms Ho additionally said that she does not expect the firm’s VIP business to be cannibalised by other gaming operators, as the Cotai property nears completion. MGM China said in September that its under-construction casino resort on Cotai is on target to open on January 29, 2018. That is more than one year later than outlined in the original timetable presented by the company. The company currently operates a single property, MGM Macau, in the city’s traditional downtown casino district. The company’s chief executive Grant Bowie told Hong Kong media on Monday that the firm plans to have five junket operators at MGM Cotai, which could help with the ramp up of the new property. Mr Bowie had previously mentioned during a conference call on the firm’s third-quarter results that MGM Cotai would initially open offering only “in-house VIP” gaming; but the firm had a programme to add junkets “as quickly as” it could.”
“Tencent targets hackers and cheaters of its top-selling game PUBG
TECHNOLOGY / 17 JANUARY 2018, 1:30PM / BLOOMBERG
INTERNATIONAL – Tencent Holdings is going after the cheaters and hackers who infest PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) as it prepares to bring the world’s top-selling game to China.
Ahead of its official debut this year, the biggest gaming company on the planet has enlisted Chinese police to root out the underground rings that make and sell cheat software. It has helped law enforcement agents uncover at least 30 cases and arrest 120 people suspected of designing programs that confer unfair advantages from X-ray vision (see-through walls) to auto-targeting (uncannily accurate snipers). Those convicted in the past have done jail time.
Tencent and game developer Bluehole have a lot riding on cleaning things up for China, which accounted for more than half the game’s 27million users, according to online tracker Steam Spy. It’s also the biggest source of cheat software, undermining a Battle Royale- style phenomenon that shattered gaming records last year and surpassed best-sellers like Grand Theft Auto V.”

“But it is in China that Haig has carved out a special niche as a door opener for American companies. The general has been a steadfast advocate for China ever since he led the advance team for President Nixon’s historic 1972 visit. Later, as secretary of state, he earned the respect of the Chinese leadership by holding fast against the powerful Taiwan lobby in Washington. (He saw China as a useful ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.) Haig continues to speak out for Beijing in his present role. Perhaps the most striking example came when he turned up at Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1989 — four months after the notorious crackdown — to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. The only American to grace the proceedings that evening, Haig knew that the United States and all other Western ambassadors would be boycotting the event, but he shared the podium with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who congratulated him on his courage in appearing.

“Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract
The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing
By Marion Dakers
7:42AM GMT 19 Dec 2014
The City of London Police has closed an investigation into Serco‘s prisoner transport contract after more than a year of work, enabling the firm to continue with the contract until 2018.
The Ministry of Justice called in the police in August 2013 to examine whether Serco had misleadingly recorded prisoners as being ready for court when they were not, in order to meet the performance criteria of the contract.
However, Serco said on Friday that the probe into the Prisoner Escort and Custody Services (PECS) contract had been closed after the police found no evidence to support bringing charges against the outsourcing firm or its staff.
“The information obtained was also sufficient for the City of London Police to conclude there was no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT [designated ready and available for court time] contract requirement by senior Serco management or at the board level of the company,” the firm said in a statement.
The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.

Serco a classic falling knife share, avoid
10 Nov 2014
Serco agreed last year to repay all past profits and forgo any future profit on the PECS contract. The deal is due to run until August 2018 and involves Serco transporting prisoners to and from 24 Crown Courts, 43 Magistrates’ Courts, 24 prisons and 131 police stations.
The end of the investigation closes one chapter of Serco‘s problems over the past few years. The company repaid £70m last year for overcharging the government on electronic tagging contracts, in a matter that was referred to the Serious Fraud Office.
The firm replaced its chief executive Chris Hyman with Rupert Soames in June, handing him the task of putting the firm back on an even keel. A rights issue is expected early next year to shore up Serco’s financial position.”

“Virtual Command Center
Real-Time Tool to Securely Monitor Criminal Incidents and Major Events Online
July 3, 2012
Originally published in the July 2012 edition of the CJIS Link, Volume 14, Number 2
.. In the modern law enforcement environment, agencies need to share information, collaborate, and join forces to combat crime and terrorism. Often they need to post, track, and spread information across departments and jurisdictions in a quick, secure way for an investigation or for a major occurrence. To satisfy this need for safe, inclusive communication, the LEO Operations Unit created the VCC capability in 2002. The LEO VCC is a situational awareness and/or crisis management tool used to share information about street-level and tactical activities among law enforcement operations centers and command posts. Since its inception, the VCC has been used by numerous agencies for local, national, and international events ranging from major case management to global events like presidential inaugurations.
Because the VCC resides on LEO, it is extremely flexible and can be used or viewed from multiple geographic locations. This makes it feasible for federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to create joint efforts in investigations and law enforcement actions. The VCC exists on a secure system for any designated audience members online, not just those physically present at an event or a “brick and mortar” command center. Through the VCC, law enforcement can effectively manage a tactical incident in real time, 24/7, with both operational and technical support. As the VCC receives and posts relevant information and intelligence, it provides a comprehensive account of an incident or event to designated law enforcement channels.
The VCC provides an events board feature that permits information posts as an event occurs and allows listing of data such as photographs, scanned documents, or any information that would be useful to managing an event or crisis. Agencies hosting the VCC can permit access to individual persons or entire agencies as needed. Even critical incident managers, such as emergency planners, can now have remote access to a crisis without having to be on-scene. Recent enhancements to the VCC capability include the ability to display incidents by specific dates or times, improved refresh rates on the screens, and improved critical real-time monitoring of operations.
The FBI and the law enforcement community as a whole have benefited from the increased ability to share vital information and collaborate—even over previously unmanageable locality impediments—by the creation of the VCC. In 2011, LEO members created over 300 new VCCs and opened over 700 VCC event boards to collect, record, and securely publish information. As an indication of its effectiveness and adaptability, the law enforcement community has used the VCC not only during kidnappings, shootings, and special investigations, but also during major events such as NASCAR races, Republican and Democratic National Conventions, a presidential inauguration, the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Academy Awards, and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.”
