Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger

April 26, 2018

Dear General Kelly:

Please accept Brief 259 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on the late chemical-warfare expert Victor Rothschild’s colleagues at Serco‘s investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. who apparently tasked Nicholas and Rupert Soames, two of Winston Churchill’s grandsons, with transferring access keys to ‘Churchill’s Toyshop‘ – a British weapon R&D organisation of WWII – to the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) network and helping Serco become a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider of special weapons in general and ‘Dumdum-style’ ammunition in particular, as described in Darrel Rubin’s Biological active bullets, systems, and methods US9200877B1.

“The Dumdum Arsenal was a British military facility located near the town of Dum-dum in modern West Bengal, India.[1] The arsenal was at the centre of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, caused in part by rumours that the paper cartridges for their muzzle-loading rifles, which they were expected to bite open, were greased with pig lard (a problem for Muslims) or cow fat (a problem for Hindus).[2] It was at this arsenal that Captain Neville Bertie-Clay developed the Mark IV cartridge, the so-called “Dum-dum bullet”, a soft-point bullet, and a hollow point version designed to mushroom on striking. This was one of the first series of expanding bullets for military use. They were later banned in warfare by the Hague Convention as being “too inhumane.”

McConnell claims that up to 60 First Nations prostitutes were shot with such bullets at BC pig farm ‘raves’ between 1996 and 2002 in front of audiences of up to 2000 guests who allegedly watched victims transitioning through various stages of pain, coma, hallucination, paralysis, bleeding and death and later help to set up an ethnic database for UT-Battelle LLC’s Piranha Project with a Method and system for determining precursors of health abnormalities from processing medical records US8473314B2.

McConnell claims that Serco has supplied up to 1.4 billion rounds of potentially biological-active bullets to Serco‘s Prisoner Escorting and Court Services and the U.S. Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System so that members of the U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES) including Kristine Marcy, Field McConnell’s sister, the founder of the SES, ConAir, DOJ Pride and a USMS prisoner medical services program, could deploy Con Air SWAT teams with Jerome H. Lemelson’s Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A in what Abel Danger has coined as the PIRHANA Project of murder-for-hire of victims selected by world bankers and an intellectual elite per below:

a. Polonium – Apparently derived from the US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC)’s Method for recovering polonium-210 from bismuth US3463739A and allegedly administered through the hollowed-out spoon handle used by the late Alexander Litvinenko or his killer to stir a teapot in London’s Millenium Hotel and stop a whistleblower from exposing a Serco pedophile blackmail ring in the Kremlin;

b. Injectors – Apparently derived from the likes of and the predecessors to Henke Sass Wolf GmbH’s Injector for injecting pellets US20160262861A1 Application which can deliver a precise dose of medicine or poison to a patient or a victim and subsequently allow Serco to inject fake news of deaths or recovery to frame the innocent and shelter the guilty;

c. Ricin – Apparently derived from Eisai Co Ltd’s Immunopotentiator containing ricin US06389456 and alleged used to kill the late Georgi Markov, a Bulgarian dissident writer, on a London street via a pellet fired into his leg from a hollowed out umbrella;

d. Anthrax – Allegedly procured from MoD Porton Down through the Serco supply chain and mixed with Evonik Degussa GmbH’s Pyrogenically produced silicon dioxide powder and dispersion thereof US7537833B2 – for the Amerithtrax attacks post 9/11;

e. Novichok – Allegedly mixed with BZ or “Buzz” gas derived from FMC Corp’s Process for making 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate US3118896A and fired through Dum-dum bullets which put Sergei and Yulia Skripal into a coma in Salisbury U.K. on April 8, 2018;

f. Health Data – Allegedly stolen by Serco operators of the Obamacare (Affordable Care) program to identify prospective murder-for-hire killers and/or patsies from UT-Battelle, LLC’s (Oak Ridge, TN) Method and system for determining precursors of health abnormalities from processing medical records U.S. Patent 8,473,314;

g. Ammunition – Serco‘s U.S. Defense Ammunition Center operators have delivered 1.4 billion rounds of Dum-dum (hollow point) ammunition with contents derived from Darren Rubin’s Biological active bullets, systems, and methods US9200877B1 over Serco 3PL supply chains and equipped Con Air SWAT teams with the capability of neutralising ethnically-selected victims through coma, hallucination, paralysis, bleeding or death.

McConnell claims that Serco arranged for Con Air prisoners to be given Buzz to administer oath-taking rituals at a BC pig farm (1996 -2002) where invited U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES) and Greek Life guests were apparently filmed as they witnessed the murder and bet on the time of death of predominantly First Nations prostitutes as they were fed through a patented device described as Bandit Industries Inc.’s Drum assembly for a wood chipper US6032707A;

McConnell claims that Serco is using threats of Dum-dum assassinations to block President Donald Trump and his counterparts including French president Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker at Rothschild & Cie Banque, from investigating Con Air SWAT team crimes dating back to the bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie in Scotland on 21 December 1988.

McConnell claims that Serco is using Boeing Co’s Encryption for asymmetric data links US7023996B2 Priority date 2001-05-04, allegedly developed by Serco‘s former Boeing Phantom Works director Dr. Pamela Drew, to sabotage investigation into SWAT team crimes allegedly committed by J. Ray Dettling of Saratoga, CA (heavily involved in the Unabomber operation) and the late Jerome “Jerry” Hal Lemelson (amongst 605 patents invented Con Air tracking system and elements of sex, lies and videotape recorders) as proxy assignees for various Toyshop devices which allow Serco agents and BBC scriptwriters to mingle encrypted SWAT team commands with news and propaganda at sabotage, assassination and mass-casualty events.

McConnell claims the Soames Brothers are using Mendenhall’s Baby or pedophile/pig farm oath rituals recorded on Facebook and other social media by Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain and former SES-6 Director for FBI Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence, to blackmail the likes of his sister Kristine Marcy and further claims that Serco issued visas to Con Air SWAT teams embedded in the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency to execute assassination or ethnic-cleansing PIRANHA missions per examples below:

1. SES Con Air’s Prisoner tracking (US6054928A) with expert-system (i.e. including fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms – allegedly used by Robert Mueller, former FBI director and Marine Corps veteran, to sabotage the investigations into the murder of John O’Neill in the WTC complex on 9/11 and ethnic cleansing attacks with binary chemical ammunition on Douma, Syria;

2. Mysis International Banking Systems Limited (London, GB’s System and method for leveraging location to enhance banking services US 9875478 – Allegedly used by Rupert Soames to track payments to the Serco Con Air SWAT teams for the Skripal BZ attacks and warn actors via social networking websites of the fates of prospective Dum-dum whistleblowers;

3. Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A – allegedly used by one of Serco‘s private equity investors, the late Gen. Alexander Haig; the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi – 25 years N M Rothschild!) and Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew for Dum-dum wagers on 9/11 through the federal bridge to Boeing Phantom Works in Boeing’s new Chicago HQ;

4. Lockheed Martin’s Rocket-boosted guided hard target penetrator US6276277B1 2001-08-21 Grant – allegedly used by Dr. Drew’s Boeing Phantom Works colleagues with guidance and control units on delivery aircraft to steer bomb dive lines into WTC 1 & 2 on 9/11 and ignite explosives after target penetration;

5. QinetiQ North America Inc’s Social Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2 – allegedly used by the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS) and Buck Revell to capture Facebook oath-taking images and silence witnesses to the crimes associated with an attempted coup d’état on 9/11.

McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s Rothschild banker or Con Air’s Kristine Marcy) 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 (a few weeks after McConnell told his sister how to drone Con Air aircraft and she apparently launched what Abel Danger calls the PIRANHA project) and saved his family from a Marine Corps SMEAC (Situation Mission Execution Ambush Cover up!) Unabomb event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with a body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on the ground.

With this the 259th Kelly public briefing and references at http://www.abeldanger.org, we ask you to pre-empt the continuing use of pig-farm ammo by SWAT teams on PIRANHA missions by stripping Serco, Con Air and the Senior Executive Service out of any federal bridge contracts and transferring Boeing’s Encryption for asymmetric data links US7023996B2 from Serco‘s Rothschild bankers to U.S. President Trump and the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity.

“Pickton murders: Explosive evidence the jury never heard
LORI CULBERT, VANCOUVER SUN 08.05.2010
There was a tremendous amount of damning evidence against Robert (Willie) Pickton that the jurors deciding his fate did not hear during his year-long trial in 2007, including an allegation from a sex-trade worker that he nearly stabbed her to death.
PETER BATTISTONI / VANCOUVER SUN FILE
VANCOUVER — There was a tremendous amount of damning evidence against Robert (Willie) Pickton that the jurors deciding his fate did not hear during his year-long trial in 2007, including an allegation from a sex-trade worker that he nearly stabbed her to death.

A series of behind-the-scenes legal rulings meant explosive Crown evidence was kept from the jury, which ultimately found Pickton not guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of six women, but guilty of the lesser charge of second-degree murder.

Publication bans kept this information under wraps until the Supreme Court of Canada quashed Pickton’s bid for a new trial, prompting B.C.’s attorney-general to stay 20 additional outstanding charges of first-degree murder against Pickton.

At the top of this shocking list of missing evidence was that of a woman who (who can’t be named) said Pickton picked her up in the Downtown Eastside and brutally stabbed her on his farm in 1997. She was important to the Crown’s case because without her, the prosecution presented no witnesses to testify that Pickton had attacked them.

Police found widespread evidence on Pickton’s farm linked to the other 20 women he was charged with killing, but those details were kept from the jury because the judge ruled they would be heard during a separate trial, which will not be held now that those charges have been stayed. The excluded evidence includes revelations that:

• The DNA of 10 of the women was found on items in two freezers in Pickton’s workshop, the same location where police found the butchered remains of two women he was convicted of killing.

• Also in the freezers were packages of ground meat containing the DNA of victims Inga Hall and Cindy Feliks.

• Cara Ellis’s DNA was found on Pickton’s jacket and Andrea Borhaven’s DNA on his boots — clothing that was seized after the 1997 knife attack but was forgotten in a police storage locker for seven years.

• On Pickton’s property, police found multiple objects linked to the 20 additional victims, including Jennifer Furminger’s DNA on a saw in the slaughterhouse; the DNA of Pickton and Jacqueline McDonell on handcuffs in the accused’s bedroom, and Pickton’s DNA on two condoms found inside two purses linked to Sarah de Vries and Dianne Rock.

• Wendy Crawford’s partial leg bone was found in the cistern of the old piggery, near the remains of two women Pickton was convicted of killing.

There were multiple other bones and teeth buried in Pickton’s property, which the Crown privately called the “killing fields,” but that information was not shared with the jurors.

The jury also did not hear about an astounding collection of women’s belongings that could not be connected by DNA to any of the known victims. For example, on one cluttered shelf in the slaughterhouse — close to where police found the jewelry of Andrea Joesbury, whom Pickton has been convicted of killing — there were three necklaces, one pair of earrings and three single earrings, a hair elastic, a cosmetic pencil sharpener, a woman’s watch and a woman’s watch face, two pendants and lip balm.

The Crown argued that a blow-up sex doll bearing Pickton’s DNA found in his bedroom closet near items belonging to the victims was relevant because “of the potential sexual nature of Mr. Pickton’s dealings” with the women, but the judge agreed with the defence’s position that it would tarnish his character for the jury to hear about the sex toy.

“The doll in question is rather peculiar and bizarre in appearance. The thought that Mr. Pickton engaged in sexual activity with this item could reasonably be expected to repulse members of the jury. In my view, there is a real concern that admission of the doll would be prejudicial, as it could lead the jury to conclude that Mr. Pickton is a sexually maladjusted individual and a person of bad character,” Williams said in his ruling.

But there was another piece of evidence that would surely have tarnished Pickton’s character even more, if the jury had ever had a chance to see it.

Immediately after Pickton’s Feb. 22, 2002 arrest, he was videotaped in his cell. The jury saw portions of the tape when he was speaking to his cellmate (an undercover officer), but what was edited out was shocking: When the cellmate was briefly removed, Pickton stripped off his clothes and masturbated in his jail cell, despite having been told there was a security camera in the ceiling.

Whether the six murders Pickton was convicted of committing were sex crimes was never debated during the trial because the victims’ remains did not provide that evidence.

When prosecutor Michael Petrie told the jury at the end of the prosecution’s case on Aug. 13, 2007 that he was “satisfied the evidence the Crown should be calling has been called,” what he surely meant was that he had called the evidence he was allowed, by law, to reveal to the jury.

Some of the information — such as most of the evidence pertaining to the other 20 victims — was held back from the jury after the judge ruled in August 2006 that Pickton should face two separate trials: the first one on six counts, and a second one on 20 counts.

Even after the severance ruling, the Crown still wanted to tell the jury about the ground meat containing the DNA of Feliks and Hall, as well as Crawford’s small leg bone found in the cistern, as “similar fact evidence.”

In his ruling, Williams said he was satisfied “that the DNA material found in the freezers is some part of the remains of Ms Feliks and Ms Hall, that they were murdered and that they were dismembered.”

However, Williams ultimately ruled there was no conclusive link between Pickton and the ground meat or the leg bone, that they would not have added much to the Crown’s case, and that permitting the evidence would have been prejudicial against Pickton and made the trial longer.

The defence was opposed to the jury hearing about all the unidentified women’s jewelry and other belongings found scattered throughout the slaughterhouse because the jurors might “improperly” conclude that the items constituted a “trophy” display of possessions of other missing women.

While Williams ruled the value of the items should not be “trivialized” because of the importance of the slaughterhouse to the Crown’s case, he decided their inclusion would be too prejudicial to Pickton.

The judge also agreed with arguments by the defence that the jury shouldn’t hear about additional guns stashed in the loft of Pickton’s workshop because it would make the accused seem like a “gun nut.”

Regarding Furminger’s DNA being found on an electric saw, Williams said “a reasonably available inference is that it may have been used to dismember human beings.” But because the DNA did not belong to any of the six women at the centre of the first trial, its inclusion would be “significantly prejudicial” to Pickton, the judge said.

“With respect to the concern raised by the Crown that the consequence of such a ruling is that Mr. Pickton will be able to effectively mislead the jury by saying that there was no DNA evidence on any of the saws, regrettably, the jury will be left with the impression that no such evidence was found, and there is no easy solution to that problem,” Williams wrote.

He ruled the condoms with Pickton’s DNA were admissible, but the fact that they were found in purses belonging to Dianne Rock and Sarah DeVries was not.

“The order for severance that was made some time earlier in these proceedings has resulted, from time to time, in collateral consequences to the Crown’s case,” he added.

How knowing about this evidence might have affected the jury’s 10 days of deliberation will never be known because in Canada, jurors cannot be interviewed about how they reached their verdicts.

“Deadly Dysfunction: Scathing undisclosed details from inside the Pickton investigation
Former VPD officer Lori Shenher wrote a book on the investigation of Robert Pickton. The Post unearths previously undisclosed aspects of the unpublished manuscript
Sam Cooper/Postmedia News
Brian Hutchinson
May 25, 2012
I had simply seen too much, felt too much and knew too much. I wanted out.—Vancouver police officer and former missing women investigator Lori Shenher

Lori Shenher thought her career as a police officer was over. The reasons: Pickton trauma. Burn-out. Guilt, the result of failure. Anger. For more than two years, from 1998 to 2000, Ms. Shenher had led a Vancouver Police Department unit tasked with finding missing women. And in that time, more women went missing and were murdered by Robert Pickton. The Port Coquitlam pig farmer had been in police sights — her sights — a long time.

Pickton was her prime suspect. He was placed under police surveillance, yet he continued to kill and dispose of bodies at his farm. When he was finally arrested in 2002, Ms. Shenher didn’t celebrate. She despaired, knowing a serial killer had slipped through her fingers. While on leave, suffering from post-traumatic stress and thinking she would never return to police work, she decided to spill her guts. Ms. Shenher sat in front of her computer and began to write.

The result was a 289-page manuscript that Toronto-based publisher McClelland & Stewart planned to have in bookstores by September 2003. But circumstances changed. The manuscript was never published. It was buried and stayed that way until this year, when lawyers representing the families of Pickton’s victims at the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry in Vancouver forced its disclosure and requested that it be made public.

During hearings in April, several passages from the Shenher manuscript were read into the inquiry record. Some lawyers argued the entire document should be entered as evidence. Commissioner Wally Oppal rejected their arguments last week. The National Post has obtained a copy of the manuscript and is publishing previously undisclosed details for the first time.

‘It is only now that I recognize all of the signs and signals of burnout and post traumatic stress disorder brought on by doing a horrible job for an unsupportive and incompetent organization,” Ms. Shenher wrote, a year after Pickton’s arrest. “I was no longer able to bear the weight of our ineptitude and rationalization…. It had always been Pickton.”

Her book is the rawest, most immediate and revealing account of the botched missing women and Pickton investigations. It describes a major Canadian police department plagued by indifference, in-fighting, sexism, racism. And it reveals much about Ms. Shenher herself.

She was a fish out of water, a young lesbian trying to work her way up in an alpha male world. The VPD was not an exceptionally tolerant or progressive workplace in 1991, the year Ms. Shenher joined. Hostilities were common inside headquarters and on the street. She recalls how officers sometimes played it old school, kicking down doors and roughing up suspects.

After working on various assignments — patrol, surveillance, a prostitution task force in Vancouver’s crime-infested Downtown Eastside — Ms. Shenher joined the VPD’s Missing Persons Unit in July 1998. Despite her lack of seniority, she was made the unit’s lead investigator and file co-ordinator. It seemed the VPD brass had finally accepted that prostitutes from the Downtown Eastside were vanishing without a trace. Those cases became her focus.

Early in her assignment, she wrote, then-VPD inspector Peter Ditchfield suggested it “would very likely turn into a serial killer investigation.” She felt she had arrived. But her enthusiasm for the job waned when she discovered how thinly resourced the missing persons unit really was. It was moribund, perhaps by design, Ms. Shenher suggests in her account.

“There was no real plan to find these women,” she wrote, in one of the few passages that were read into the inquiry record last month. “I see now that I was merely a figurehead, a sacrificial lamb thrown into an investigation the VPD management was convinced would never amount to anything and would never grow into the tragedy it has become. An investigation they could care less about.”

Ms. Shenher is extremely critical of her colleagues; few are spared from her bitter attacks. She began at the top.

“At the time, beleaguered former chief constable Bruce Chambers was running the VPD,” she wrote. “Between trying to manage a highly dysfunctional organization and sniffing out snakes in his own senior management team, he was busy and not particularly interested in a bunch of missing hookers and drug addicts.”

The passage was read back to Ms. Shenher last month, when she returned to the inquiry for cross-examination by Cameron Ward, a lawyer for the families of the murdered and missing women. “I stand by that,” she testified.

The unit operated from a tiny, “airless and windowless” room inside department headquarters on Main Street. Missing person complaints were handled by a civilian clerk named Sandra Cameron, whom Ms. Shenher alleged in her book was prone to “diatribes and rants.”

On one occasion, “I listened to [Ms. Cameron] speaking to someone on the phone, obviously growing more and more impatient and agitated. Finally, she shouted into the receiver, ‘SPEAK ENGLISH, THIS IS CA-NA-DA.’ This was not the first time I had witnessed [such] behaviour on her part and I had had enough.”

In another passage read aloud into the inquiry proceedings by lawyer Ward, Ms. Shenher recalls asking Ms. Cameron “who she had ‘blown’ to manage to retain her job all of these years. She just laughed, perhaps thinking I was kidding. I wasn’t.”

Ms. Shenher received compelling information that summer, tips that identified Robert “Willie” Pickton, a creepy loner living on a messy pig farm in suburban Port Coquitlam. According to police sources who came forward in 1998, Pickton bragged that he could dispose of bodies on his farm using a meat grinder. Sources claimed that women’s purses and identification were inside Pickton’s trailer. Shenher met one of the sources and thought him to be honest.

‘I became more convinced that Pickton was our man’

She learned that a year earlier, Pickton was charged with the attempted murder of a Downtown Eastside prostitute, whom he had lured to his farm. An RCMP officer who had investigated the stabbing and had recommended the attempted murder charge to Crown prosecutors believed the case was a slam dunk, an easy conviction. But the Crown stayed the charge, on the belief — not shared by the RCMP or Ms. Shenher — that Pickton’s alleged victim was too drug-dependent to make a reliable witness.

“I became more convinced that Pickton was our man,” Ms. Shenher wrote in her book.

She had a potential ally inside the VPD: Kim Rossmo, a geographic profiler with a doctorate in criminology. He believed one or more serial killers were preying on Downtown Eastside prostitutes and he shared his perspective with Ms. Shenher.

Mr. Rossmo was not well-liked by certain colleagues, who thought him an inexperienced flake and unworthy of the unique title he had been given, detective inspector. Ms. Shenher had similar opinions. “His own arrogance and insecurity are his greatest faults,” Ms. Shenher wrote. “Rossmo told me he felt the offender or offenders had the ability to dispose of bodies in privacy, was likely Caucasian and probably used a vehicle, all things I had surmised on my own without the use of any computer program.”

Of course, the description fit Robert Pickton. If Ms. Shenher had already drawn similar conclusions, and was convinced he was the perpetrator, then why was Pickton not apprehended in 1998? How could Ms. Shenher have failed, knowing all that she did? In her manuscript, she blames the old boys, the apathetic men in charge.

“[The missing women] were dead, we had a strong suspect and, still, VPD management put their collective hands over their ears, loudly sang la-la-la and pretended we didn’t have a responsibility to find these women,” she wrote, in another passage read aloud at the inquiry by Mr. Ward, the lawyer.

She could have pressed harder, she admits. “I, too, should have complained long and loud about the lack of resources to properly investigate these files and I really didn’t.”

By 1999, she had decided it came down to this: Rock the boat and watch her career go up in flames or go with the flow and keep climbing the VPD ladder. She chose the latter course. “The best I could hope to do was try my best for these women and cover my own ass,” she wrote.

Mr. Rossmo’s VPD contract expired in 2000. He filed a wrongful dismissal lawsuit that ended up before the courts. This “became an embarrassing display of VPD upper management accusing each other of lying on the [witness] stand, like a bunch of school boys in a playing field arguing over a goal,” wrote Ms. Shenher.

She portrayed her immediate boss, a VPD sergeant named Geramy Field, as a well-intentioned yet powerless, even befuddled, cop. Ms. Shenher wrote that at one point, it seemed as if “we had changed roles and I was now the supervisor, guiding and advising her as to the right thing to do. She appeared lost and pleaded with me to tell her what she should do.”

In May 1999, with more women disappearing from the Downtown Eastside, a formal missing person review team (MPRT) was established and additional resources and VPD officers were put to work. Initially, Ms. Shenher was thrilled. Then she compared her resources to the Home Invasion Task Force which was set up next door. “New detectives dreamed of being asked to join the Home Invasion Task Force,” she wrote, “while those same people avoided the MPRT like the plague, uninterested in searching for a bunch of missing ‘whores’…. Apparently, victimized homeowners warranted the big guns; missing, drug-addicted hookers did not.”

Her assessment of two VPD officers assigned to her team is scathing. Detective Constables Doug Fell and Mark Wolthers are depicted as renegades whom nobody liked. “Not only did they have even less experience dealing with major files than I had, they brought with them a dubious reputation, both on the street and among their fellow officers,” she wrote.

The pair annoyed Ms. Shenher from the start. She was especially upset by the close attention they paid to a previously convicted sex offender and drifter named Barry Niedermeyer, whom she did not believe had any connection to Vancouver’s missing women. But arrangements were made with RCMP in Alberta to put Niedermeyer under surveillance. Ms. Shenher was miffed.

“Fell and Wolthers strutted and preened as the surveillance was going on, basking in the glow of their perceived new importance as the detectives overseeing this large undercover operation that was the collection of [Niedermeyer’s] DNA,” she wrote sarcastically. “[Another VPD officer] and I were so annoyed, we took to snorting like pigs in the office — our way of staying sane in such a manic environment and of saying they were pursuing the wrong man and that we believed Pickton was a far more worthy suspect.”

‘We believed Pickton was a far more worthy suspect’

Niedermeyer was eventually charged with more sex offences and was convicted and imprisoned, thanks to the work of Messrs.. Fell and Wolthers. Yet Ms. Shenher slams them in her book, giving them no credit at all.

In testimony this month at the inquiry, Messrs. Fell and Wolthers claimed that information about Pickton was kept from them while they worked under Ms. Shenher. Other officers have denied the allegation. Mr. Wolthers also said the pair was unfairly criticized in the VPD’s official missing women investigation review, written by Deputy Chief Constable Doug LePard and entered as evidence early on in the inquiry. Mr. Wolthers called the deputy chief’s findings “disgusting.”

Both officers were removed from the review team in 2000. Mr. Wolthers, now retired, does not believe the VPD ever completed its job, even after Pickton was arrested. “I believe strongly that there’s two to three serial killers,” he told the inquiry. “I don’t believe that Robert Pickton is responsible for all of ’em.'”

Ms. Shenher turned to clairvoyants and psychics to help her crack the missing women cases. She “didn’t exactly broadcast it around the office,” she wrote. One psychic seemed to have a gift, but nothing useful materialized.

By the summer of 2000, the number of names on the VPD’s missing women list had surpassed 30. Ms. Shenher and other officers were told the review team was winding down, that the RCMP was going to review the entire investigation and basically assume the missing women files. The Mounties took review team documents to their offices in Surrey, a Vancouver suburb; some have not been seen since, according to frustrated inquiry lawyers.

The RCMP had already been conducting an on-again, off-again investigation into Robert Pickton and had shared the same graphic tip information with the VPD. The farm that Pickton shared with his younger brother David was in the RCMP’s jurisdiction; it was just a few kilometres from the RCMP’s Port Coquitlam detachment, in fact.

The Mounties were also aware of Piggy’s Palace, a booze can the brothers owned and operated; it sat across the street from their farm. It was widely understood to be frequented by Hells Angels members and associates. The RCMP had great interest in such characters and had various biker investigations underway.

Then there was Bev “Puff” Hyacinthe, a civilian who worked inside the RCMP’s Port Coquitlam detachment. She was a Pickton family friend and neighbour, the inquiry has heard. She allegedly attended a New Year’s Eve party at Piggy’s Palace in 1999 and saw Robert Pickton cavorting with a woman later identified as missing. Remarkably, Ms. Hyacinthe was also aware that Robert Pickton had learned he was under RCMP surveillance, the inquiry has heard. (Inquiry lawyers wanted Ms. Hyacinthe to testify; David Pickton, too. Commissioner Oppal refused their requests, without offering any explanation.)

‘It became obvious the VPD was looking for an opportunity to dump this case’

Like others, Ms. Shenher thought the Mounties’ on-again, off-again interest in Pickton was odd. Why, she wondered, had they suddenly offered to review Vancouver’s missing women investigations? “It became obvious the VPD was looking for an opportunity to dump this case,” she wrote. Perhaps the RCMP felt they needed to show “acceptance for some of the responsibility for the file.” The truth may be far more complicated.

Pickton kept on killing. Lori Shenher became fed up with the review team, and left in November 2000. This was “sooner than planned,” she wrote, explaining that “a murder took place in my own family and the only place I felt I should be was with my partner.” She and her same-sex partner had a baby boy early the next year. Ms. Shenher took maternity leave. When she returned to work, she joined the VPD’s Diversity Relations Unit.

But the missing women investigation gnawed at her conscience. The following summer, Ms. Shenher met with a Vancouver Sun reporter, Lindsay Kines, and she unloaded. “I told him of the set-up of the MPRT, of the shell game that was the VPD’s response to these women’s disappearances, of the incompetent people we were forced to work with,” she wrote in her manuscript. “I placed him in an awful position, knowing he wouldn’t be able to use any of it, but feeling someone needed to know this — the public needed to know this.”

She also discussed details with television producer Chris Haddock, the creator of the CBC drama da Vinci’s Inquest, which was shot in Vancouver. Ms. Shenher had been a journalist before joining the VPD and she often worked as an advisor for Mr. Haddock on his hit series. She couldn’t resist sharing with him her “frustration with the lack of progress on the Pickton file.”

The RCMP had all kinds of information on Pickton: The 1997 knife attack on a Downtown Eastside prostitute. Reports from various sources in 1998 and 1999, about women’s clothing and firearms on his farm. About Pickton talking about his ability to dispose of corpses. A witness account, about Pickton purportedly skinning a female corpse in his barn. Bev Hyacinthe’s alleged knowledge of Pickton. And yet senior RCMP officers claim they lacked information to obtain a warrant to search the Pickton farm.

But in February 2002, a young RCMP corporal applied to the courts for permission to enter the property. His search warrant application was based on the suspicion that Pickton possessed an illegal handgun. Once on the farm, more macabre discoveries were made: Items that had belonged to missing women. The farm became a massive crime scene investigation and Pickton was soon arrested.

Ms. Shenher was invited to witness RCMP investigators interview Pickton at their Surrey detachment. She was told that Pickton “had masturbated almost immediately upon entering the cell the previous night and, to the horror of his poor cellmate, would do so several times throughout the night.” Pickton would give the RCMP a confession, of sorts, hinting that he might have killed as many as 49 women. By then, his fate was practically sealed. He was eventually charged with 26 counts of first degree murder and was convicted by a jury on six counts of second degree murder. But his trial was not held until 2007.

‘… nothing in policing appealed to me’

Ms. Shenher felt no satisfaction after his arrest. The RCMP had taken most of the credit for nabbing Pickton. VPD investigators were cast as failures. Truth was they had failed. Ms. Shenher wrote that she had come “to a startling and sobering realization — nothing in policing appealed to me.” She was done. Or so she thought.

She went on medical leave in mid-2002 and began working on her manuscript. It was a cathartic exercise, she told the inquiry and, clearly, she felt she had some scores to settle. She and her partner had another baby. Ms. Shenher went on a long maternity leave in February 2003. She hired a literary agent, signed a book deal with McClelland & Stewart, and began delivering chapters. She wrote 289 pages.

Inevitably, reporters caught wind of her book project. Families of Pickton’s victims were outraged. The VPD claimed Ms. Shenher was not writing a book. But she was, and was still collecting a VPD paycheque. She had been part of the Pickton investigation, and she had filled her manuscript with details about evidence. Yet Pickton hadn’t even been tried. There was confusion.

So the book disappeared.

It “just died a death,” Ms. Shenher testified last month, when inquiry lawyers quizzed her on it. “The VPD really had no knowledge that I had written it…. They had nothing to do with the decisions around it at all.” The VPD had not ordered her to kill it. “I wasn’t in any way pressured by them.”

On the other hand, she told lawyer Cameron Ward, “I stand by most of what I wrote, for the most part. There are a couple of things that I have come to, you know, in the fullness of time, have come to understand a little bit differently, or I have had more information provided to me, which has changed my view. But I think the overall tenor of the book I would stand by.”

Ms. Shenher returned to the VPD in 2004. She is now a Detective Constable with the Emergency and Operations Planning Section. Reached at her work late this week, she declined to discuss her book. “I still have to work here,” she said. “I do intend to rewrite it as a memoir one day.”

“UT-Battelle LLC’s Method and system for determining precursors of health abnormalities from processing medical records US8473314B2 Abstract Medical reports are converted to document vectors in computing apparatus and sampled by applying a maximum variation sampling function including a fitness function to the document vectors to reduce a number of medical records being processed and to increase the diversity of the medical records being processed. Linguistic phrases are extracted from the medical records and converted to s-grams. A Haar wavelet function is applied to the s-grams over the preselected time interval; and the coefficient results of the Haar wavelet function are examined for patterns representing the likelihood of health abnormalities [e.g. climate change denial?]. This confirms certain s-grams as precursors of the health abnormality and a parameter can be calculated in relation to the occurrence of such a health abnormality. … STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH This invention was made with assistance under Contract No. DE-AC05-00OR22725 with the U.S. Department of Energy.

“During the Hague Convention of 1899, the British delegation attempted to justify the use of the dumdum bullet by pointing to its utility when putting down colonial unrest. Barbara Tuchman writes that, “Developed by the British to stop the rush of fanatical tribesman, the bullets were vigorously defended by Sir John Ardagh against the heated attack of all except the American military delegate, Captain Crozier, whose country was about to make use of them in the Philippines. In warfare against savages, Ardagh explained to an absorbed audience, ‘men penetrated through and through several times by our latest pattern of small calibre projectiles, which make small clean holes,’ were nevertheless able to rush on and come to close quarters. Some means had to be found to stop them. ‘The civilized soldier when shot recognizes that he is wounded and knows that the sooner he is attended to the sooner he will recover. He lies down on his stretcher and is taken off the field to his ambulance, where he is dressed or bandaged. Your fanatical barbarian, similarly wounded, continues to rush on, spear or sword in hand; and before you have the time to represent to him that his conduct is in flagrant violation of the understanding relative to the proper course for the wounded man to follow—he may have cut off your head.'”[19] However, the rest of the delegates at the Hague Convention 1899 did not accept this justification and voted 22–2 to prohibit the future use of the dumdum bullet.”

“September 20, 2012 Why does Homeland Security need 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition?
By Lee DeCovnick
The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition- that is not a typo — during the last six months. This includes 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point, 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition, and 176,000 rounds of .308 168-grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) that is used almost exclusively as ammo for sniper rifles.

From beforeitsnews.com we read:

Why is everyone all up in arms about the recent purchase by Homeland security of 1.4 Billion rounds of ammunition?

Our undeclared Foreign War in Iraq Consumes about 70,000,000 (70 Million) Rounds of Ammunition Each Year, which would take about 20 years to consume 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition ordered by the Department of Homeland Security alone, not including all the ammunition ordered by the weather service, Social Security, etc! 20 Years To Use All 1.4 Billion Rounds Of This Ammo?

Is the Department of Homeland security to protect us from foreign terrorists, or to protect the central government from the American people?

Read the entire chilling article. Avoid any political discussions about Obama’s infamous 2008 quote, lest your blood pressure dangerously rise.

We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

Let’s put these DHS numbers in perspective. An Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer displaces (weighs) 9,300 tons. 1.4 billion rounds weigh around 28,000 tons, three destroyers’ worth, so to speak. It takes over 1,200 18-wheel trucks to move that much ammunition. That’s the equivalent to a line of single trailer trucks, parked end to end, almost 14 miles long.

There are 314 million Americans, men, women and children living in the United States this morning. This year alone, DHS has purchased four rounds for each and every American. We don’t know how much more ammo the DHS may have accumulated during the preceding 36 months of the Obama Administration. This enormous DHS stockpile supplements the ammunition already held by the US Armed Forces, the National Guard, hundreds of local and state police departments, plus other Federal law enforcement agencies such as the ATF, Secret Service, FBI, TSA and the US Marshals Service.

Why did DHS purchase 28,000 tons of ammunition? Why did DHS purchase almost half a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, banned by the Hague Convention of 1899 for use in international warfare, that is carefully designed to kill it intended targets? Americans have no good answers to these questions since the DHS is now refusing to respond to media inquiries on the subject. Pull back the curtain of silence by asking your Congressmen and Senators these questions.

These huge inventories are extremely troubling from the standpoint of a free society. DHS and other Federal governmental agencies will be much less inclined to ever use this ammunition as long as Americans citizens stand firm in supporting our Second Amendment rights to bear arms. We must never forget that tyrants throughout modern history (Pol Pot, Hitler, Stalin and Mao) always disarmed their opponents before rounding them up and sending them to the killing fields.

We must never forget.

The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition- that is not a typo — during the last six months.

“Biological active bullets, systems, and methods Abstract A novel biological active bullet able to be discharged from a firearm, the ammunition essentially comprising a bullet in a cartridge, the bullet associated with/containing at least one biological active substance, along with a method of use of delivering with this bullet at least one biological active substance having at least one biological effect in the target upon impact and penetration, in addition to the bullet wound, and thus, having additional functions and applications than prior art bullets. Inventor Darren Rubin Original Assignee Darren Rubin Priority date 2012-05-02 15-12-01 US9200877B1 Grant

At least one active substance may be selected from nerve agents, including, but not limited to, organophosphates, such as G-agents, including tabun (GA), sarin (GB), soman (GD), cyclosarin (GF), and GV, V-agents, including EA-3148, VE, VG, VM, VR, and VX, Novichok agents, and any combinations thereof.

At least one active substance may be selected from neurotoxins, including, but not limited to, ion channel inhibitors, such as sodium channel inhibitors, such as tetrodotoxin, potassium channel inhibitors, chloride channel inhibitors, such as curare, calcium channel inhibitors, such as conotoxin, inhibitors of synaptic vesicle release, such as botulinum toxin, and receptor inhibitors, such as bungarotoxin and 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate (QNB), and any combinations thereof, so as to interrupt at least some of a biological target’s function.

In some embodiments of the invention, the cavity of the tip of the bullet serves as a hollow point cavity, such that the bullet expands upon entering a target in order to decrease penetration and disrupt more tissue, and dissipate more energy, as it travels through the target, while reducing the risk of collateral damage. Such a hollow point cavity feature makes it very likely that the bullet will remain in the target to deliver biological active substances effectively, instead of exiting the target and risking injury to an unintentional target.

The present invention is able to deliver a wide variety of biological active substances and combinations of biological active substances. This includes, but is not limited to: catalysts, enzymes, or inhibitors, such as to cause or inhibit biochemical reactions in the target; vasodilators and anticoagulants, such as to cause enhanced wound bleeding in the target; radioactive substances, such as to cause cellular and DNA damage, or to detect a wounded target trying to pass through airport security instruments, or to track a wounded target, such as by detecting radiation in dripping blood; nerve agents and neurotoxins, such as to damage, incapacitate, or kill a target from a non-fatal bullet wound; blistering agents, nettle agents, urticants, and corrosives, to cause tissue damage and to incapacitate the target with excessive pain; other pain-inducing agents; muscle relaxants, paralytics, and sedatives to slow or stop a target, such as when not trying to kill the target; spasmodic agents and convulsives to incapacitate and potentially kill the target; hallucinogenic agents to disorient a target; infectious agents, such as to inoculate a target so as to infect that target; as well as, delivering curative agents to a target at a distance when it would be otherwise unsafe to administer the curative agent in close contact, such as when the target is hostile.

The bullet of the present invention is capable of being associated with biological active substances in a variety of formats, such as solids, liquids, gels, pastes, films, fast-dissolving formats, slow-release formats, along with a variety of excipients that may aid the delivery of the substance(s). Also, the bullet of the present invention is capable of delivering a wide range of biological active substance quantity, such as up to and over one gram of material. Some biological active substances are lethal in small quantities. For example, the toxic protein ricin is lethal at under 2 mg when administered to a target’s body. Such a quantity of ricin can occupy a volume of space less than 0.5% the size of an average aspirin tablet, and thus have minimal effect on the bullet’s ballistics.

The present invention also includes methods associated with adding the biological active substance to the bullet, such as during manufacture, or out in the field. The present invention also includes methods of using the biological active bullet cartridge, including loading and discharging the cartridge to affect the target with the unique features of this novel invention.

In this respect, before explaining at least one embodiment of the invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited in its application to the details of construction and to the arrangements of the components set forth in the following description or illustrated in the drawings. The invention is capable of other embodiments and of being practiced and carried out in various ways. Also, it is to be understood that the phraseology and terminology employed herein are for the purpose of descriptions and should not be regarded as limiting. As such, those skilled in the art will appreciate that the conception, upon which this disclosure is based, may readily be utilized as a basis for the designing of other structures, methods and systems for carrying out the several purposes of the present invention. It is important, therefore, that the claims be regarded as including such equivalent constructions insofar as they do not depart from the spirit and scope of the present invention.

It therefore an object of the present invention to provide a new and improved biological active bullet which has all of the advantages of prior art bullets of known designs and configurations and none of the disadvantages.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a new and improved biological active bullet and cartridge which may be easily and efficiently manufactured and marketed.

It is further object of the present invention to provide a new and improved biological active bullet system which is of durable and reliable constructions.

An even further object of the present invention is to provide a new and improved biological active bullet system which is susceptible of a low cost of manufacture with regard to both materials and labor, and which accordingly is then susceptible of low prices of sale, thereby making such biological active bullet system economical. Because the biological active bullet has the ability to kill a target that would otherwise survive a non-fatal gunshot wound, this invention also has potential to conserve ammunition.

Even still another object of the present invention is to provide a biological active bullet system for delivering at least one biological active substance to the body of a target upon bullet impact and penetration.”

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.”

Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding method Abstract A system and method for tracking, monitoring and learning prisoner or parolee behavior involves obtaining prisoner or parolee data and monitoring data for at least one individual prisoner or parolee, storing the prisoner or parolee data and monitored data into a database, learning prisoner or parolee behavior from the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database, and updating the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database. Expert system (i.e. including but not limited to fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms are executed for determining and analyzing deviated behavior by the prisoner or parolee. A parole level is assigned to the prisoner or parolee and it is determined whether the prisoner or parolee is to be moved up or down a parole level depending on whether the prisoner or parolee behavior does not constitute or does constitute prisoner or parolee violations. Furthermore, the system tracks, monitors, and learns the behavior of the prisoner or parolee by controlling and regulating the permitted/prohibited locations or sectors, the permitted/prohibited location or sector dwell times, the permitted/prohibited travel routes, the permitted/prohibited travel times that the prisoner or parolee spends at or between various locations.

 “SHARON WEINBERGER SECURITY 04.06.07 ARMY’S HALLUCINOGENIC WEAPONS UNVEILED

SO MUCH CONSPIRACY and disinformation surrounds the military’s past work on LSD and other chemical agents that it’s been difficult to separate fact from fiction. That’s starting to change, however.

 …. Army doctors gave soldier volunteers synthetic marijuana, LSD and two dozen other psychoactive drugs during experiments aimed at developing chemical weapons that could incapacitate enemy soldiers, a psychiatrist who performed the research says in a new memoir.

The program, which ran at the Army’s Edgewood, Md., arsenal from 1955 until about 1972, concluded that counterculture staples such as acid and pot were either too unpredictable or too mellow to be useful as weapons, psychiatrist James Ketchum said in an interview.

The program did yield one hallucinogenic weapon: softball-size artillery rounds that were filled with powdered quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ, a deliriant of the belladonnoid family that had placed some research subjects in a sleeplike state and left them impaired for days.

*Ketchum says the BZ bombs were stockpiled at an Army arsenal in Arkansas but never deployed. They were later destroyed. *

The Army acknowledged the program’s existence in 1975. Follow-up studies by the Army in 1978 and the National Academy of Sciences in 1981 found that volunteers suffered no long-term effects.”

“Salisbury’s Nerve Agent and The $70 M Pentagon Program at Porton Down
April 4, 2018
By Dilyana Gaytandzhieva
The Pentagon has spent at least $70 million on military experiments involving tests with deadly viruses and chemical agents at Porton Down -– the UK military laboratory near the city of Salisbury. The secretive biological and chemical research facility is located just 13 km from where on 4th March former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slumped on a bench following an alleged Novichok nerve agent poisoning.

The Porton Down Lab is located just 13 km from the site where Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found and from where they were rushed to hospital.

Information obtained from the US federal contracts registry reveals that the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has funded a number of military projects performed at the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), or Porton Down, over the last decade.

Among them: experimental respiratory infection of non-human primates (marmosets) with Anthrax, Ebola virus, Marburg virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus, Western equine encephalitis virus, and Eastern equine encephalitis virus. The US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has also funded experiments on animals which were exposed to chemical agents such as Sulfur Mustard and Phosgene gas. Phosgene gas was used as a chemical weapon during World War I where it was responsible for about 85 % of the 100,000 deaths caused by chemical weapons.

DTRA has also been granted full access to DSTL scientific and technical capabilities, and test data under a 2011 contract for the collaboration and exchange of scientific and technical capabilities with the UK Ministry of Defence.”

“Rupert Christopher Soames OBE (born 18 May 1959) is a British businessman, CEO of the outsourcing company Serco. .. His brother is the Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Soames .. Soames was educated at St. Aubyns Preparatory School in Rottingdean, East Sussex and Eton College,[2] and then Worcester College at the University of Oxford,[3] during which time he worked as a DJ at the London nightclub Annabel’s, as well as being elected to the Presidency of the Oxford Union.[3] .. Upon graduation, he was offered a position at GEC by the managing director Arnold Weinstock. He remained at GEC for 15 years, working in the company’s avionics and computing divisions, and became managing director of Avery Berkel, running the company’s UK, India, Asia and Africa operations.[4] .. After leaving GEC in 1997, Soames joined the software company Misys as chief executive of its Midas-Kapiti division. He was promoted to chief executive of the Banking and Securities Division in June 2000.[5] Soames left Misys after a disagreement with Misys founder Kevin Lomax on the company’s direction, and was appointed chief executive of power hire group Aggreko in June 2003,[6] replacing Philip Harrower who died when his car collided with a train in the United States.[7]”

“Sir Arthur Nicholas Winston Soames (born 12 February 1948), sometimes known as Nick Soames, is a British Conservative Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex since 1997. He is a grandson of Winston Churchill.

Soames was first elected to Parliament in 1983 for Crawley. He was Minister of State for the Armed Forces from 1994 to 1997 in the government of John Major. His main political interests are defence, international relations, rural affairs and industry. ..

In 1970, he was appointed Equerry to HRH The Prince of Wales; he has remained a close friend of the Prince ever since and publicly criticised Diana, Princess of Wales, during the couple’s estrangement. When Diana first accused the Prince of Wales of adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles, Soames told the BBC that the accusation, and Diana’s fear of being slandered by her husband’s courtiers, stemmed merely from Diana’s mental illness, and “the advanced stages of paranoia”.[5] Charles later admitted his adultery and Soames apologised. When questioned by the inquest into the death of Diana, Soames said that he saw his job as “to speak up for the Prince of Wales”. He denied threatening Diana [who may have been seen as a prospective whistleblower for ConAir pedophile or Mendenhall oath rituals], and warning her, “accidents happen” in the months before she died.[6]

In 1972, he left Kensington Palace and the army to work as a stockbroker. In 1974, he became a personal assistant; first to Sir James Goldsmith and then in 1976 to United States Senator Mark Hatfield, whose employ he left in 1978 [was he at Kristine Marcy’s Mendenhall Baby conception in November 1978?] to become a director of Bland Welch, Lloyd’s Brokers. Between 1979–81, he was an assistant director of the Sedgwick Group.[citation needed] He fought Central Dunbartonshire in Scotland in 1979, where Labour’s Hugh McCartney defeated him by 12,003 votes.”

“‘Now You Can Be Both’ Mother, Professional
By Judy Mann August 8, 1979
Kristine Mary, now a supergrade in the Office of Personnel Management, had her first chile 2 1/2 years ago, when she was a budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget. At nights she was finishing up her law degree at George Washington University.

“My baby was due the 17th of December. My last exam was on the 15th. I went to work, took off a little early, took my exam, went home,wondering why I felt so bad. Immediately, I went into labor. It blew everybody’s mind that I could wrap up everything at work, wrap up everything at school and have my baby. That was of the all-time coup.”

She had succeeded, beyond a question, in proving that she could do it all — that she could work during her entire pregnancy in the high-pressure atmosphere of OMB and also finish law school.

Kristine Marcy’s second child was due August 5 and again, she has worked throughout her pregnancy, this time as assistant director for human resources for veterans and labor programs. She has turned 32 and has been in demanding, supergrade jobs since her daughter was 8 months old. Her husband, Eric Marcy, is an assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia in the fraud division.

Kristine Marcy has noticed subtle but important changes in her working environment since her last pregnancy. People, she says, are a little more realistic about working mothers and pregnant women. Maybe a little more relaxed about it.And she says she doesn’t feel she has to prove a point anymore.

“There’s just a lot more familiarity with pregnant women in major jobs around government. It’s not such a shock.” Several years ago, she believes, women felt they had to be either mothers or professionals. “Now you can be both,” she says. It’s acceptable to show some emotion, it’s acceptable to alter your job style. I think that’s happening across the board, though, for men and for women.”

She worked to the end of her first pregnancy to prove that it could be done. Had she felt sick, she says, she would have stayed home if necessary and found some other way of explaning her absence to the office. “Now, I would just say, look, I feel rotten and I’m staying home, even if it was obvious it was pregnancy related. I don’t feel it’s really a question of having to prove yoursele anymore . . . I’ve proved myself. Obviously, I can stay up all night [with a sick child] and still come into work. I don’t think I carry that burden anymore.”

She feels pregnancy and motherhood are accepted “in stride” by her coworkers. “I don’t get probing questions or the advice I got the first time. I just couldn’t walk down the hall without people saying it’s a boy or it’s a girl. I haven’t gotten nearly the unsolicited comments.

“I was very conscious that all the men whe worked for me would go home and ask their wives what it’s like, so they would know how to deal with me. I assumed that. I don’t know that any of them did. I tried to keep my pregnancy secret as long as possible and have them find out I’ve been pregnant for four months and hadn’t behaved any differently.”

Mendenhall’s baby [Conceived by Nicholas Soames?] was due in early August [1979]. “I now work from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Everybody at work has so afraid of being offensive, that they ignore it.””

“Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article] You won’t need a reservation on this airline — no matter how many travelers flood the airport. .. Call it ConAir and Little knows what you mean. It’s the name the air transport system has picked up inside the U.S. Marshals Service, which flies a fleet of 13 airplanes on regular routes across the country every day. During the past year, the prisoner airline spent $24 million moving more than 100,000 federal inmates — including 12,000 from San Diego — to and from trials, prisons and medical centers nationwide. … Among the most infamous of its recent travelers were Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski and the men accused in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh. Nichols and McVeigh were transported in the dead of night in an operation much akin to a clandestine military operation, Little said. He did not want to go into details but mentioned that a decoy plane was among the ploys used to guard against possible attempts by supporters to free the suspects.

Federal officials have always been circumspect about the fine points of prisoner movement. But ConAir soon could gain a higher public profile with the planned release in June of a movie by the same name. In the Disney film, Nicolas Cage plays a hapless prisoner who wanders into a hijack plot aboard a Marshals Service plane carrying a group of high-security inmates.

The Hollywood marshals rough up some of the prisoners, and the plane crashes, leaving the real Marshals Service frowning on the silver screen’s invention, said Kristine Marcy, a top official in charge of detentions. … Prisoners — mostly people being held for entering the country with false documents — are flown from San Diego to Las Vegas, where they are housed in the city jail. They are flown back a few days later for deportation hearings. .. Because of the San Diego jail space problem, there was no holiday break here for ConAir. While flights in other parts of the country were cut back during the Christmas season, San Diego continued its rigorous schedule of two flights every weekday and one each Saturday and Sunday.

Marcy said the air transportation system inspires a high level of commitment in its personnel. “People are always willing to be on standby or to work overtime,” she said, noting that the planes are not always used for prisoner transport. After a hurricane flattened parts of the Virgin Islands last year, the prisoner transportation system flew in some of the first reinforcements to help establish law and order, she said.

After the Oklahoma City bombing, the airline flew evidence to the FBI crime laboratory in Washington, D.C., she said.

With planes crisscrossing the country, traveling through multiple time zones and even venturing around the globe, scheduling and tracking have gone high-tech. It’s all accomplished from a scheduling center in Kansas City, Mo., referred to as the “travel agency” for ConAir. It handles up to 500 electronic requests for flights each day, federal officials say.

Flight tracking begins an hour before the first plane takes off. Throughout the day, employees monitor the movements of every plane until the last craft is safely on the ground.

On board, a crew of deputy U.S. marshals, aviation enforcement officers and contract guards keeps order in the rear of the plane. Passengers are loaded under high security at a remote area of an airport. Seat assignments are not optional.

The planes fly out of a hub in Oklahoma City, the center of the country, making large loops east and west, dropping off and picking up passengers as they land at 40 major cities.

The planes also loop along separate West Coast and East Coast circuits.

.. He said jail cells, which generally are rented by the Marshals Service to hold federal prisoners until they are sentenced to a long-term facility, can cost up to $100 a night on the East Coast, while in Texas or Louisiana the cost of a cell might run as low as $35 a night.

“You make up the cost of moving a prisoner pretty quickly at that rate,” Little said.

He said other reasons for moving prisoners include the need to separate gang members or suspects testifying against each other.

ConAir also moves inmates for the federal Bureau of Prisons, which may want to transfer someone from a high-to low-security facility.

Higher-security prison space is most expensive, Little explained, so prison authorities like to quickly move people who do not need the extra supervision.”

“Opened in 1994 as the successor to the Transitional Immigrant Visa Processing Center in Rosslyn, Va., the NVC centralizes all immigrant visa pre-processing and appointment scheduling for overseas posts. The NVC collects paperwork and fees before forwarding a case, ready for adjudication, to the responsible post.

The center also handles immigrant and fiancé visa petitions, and while it does not adjudicate visa applications, it provides technical assistance and support to visa-adjudicating consular officials overseas.

Only two Foreign Service officers, the director and deputy director, work at the center, along with just five Civil Service employees. They work with almost 500 contract employees doing preprocessing of visas, making the center one of the largest employers in the Portsmouth area.

The contractor, Serco, Inc., has worked with the NVC since its inception and with the Department for almost 18 years.

The NVC houses more than 2.6 million immigrant visa files, receives almost two million pieces of mail per year and received more than half a million petitions from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in 2011. Its file rooms’ high-density shelves are stacked floor-to-ceiling with files, each a collection of someone’s hopes and dreams and each requiring proper handling. ….

The NVC also preprocesses the chief of mission (COM) application required for the filing of a petition for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV). Such visas, for foreign nationals who have performed services for the U.S. government in Iraq and Afghanistan, require COM concurrence before the applicant can file a petition with USCIS. The NVC collects the requisite documents from such applicants and, when complete, forwards the package to the U.S. embassies in Baghdad or Kabul for COM approval”

Published: 8 Jan 2015

Serco said goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco‘s management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK’s economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been: – .. It has been estimated that work carried out by the Centre of Carbon Measurement at NPL will save eight million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions (2% of UK footprint) and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade. … NPL’s caesium fountain atomic clock is accurate to 1 second in 158 million years and NPL is playing a key role in introducing rigour to high frequency trading in the City through NPLTime. .. “I’m also immensely proud of Serco‘s track record in managing and operating a key UK asset. NPL is quite rightly recognised as one of the top three NMIs in the world, despite having a limited budget compared with many others. .. We leave the NPL in a very healthy state.”

“The Emergency Planning College also known as “the Hawkhills” is a company based in the United Kingdom which is involved in activities to promote organisational resilience. Since 2010 the college has been operated by Serco, delivering training approved by the Civil Contingencies Secretariat (CCS) of the Cabinet Office. The college buildings are located at Easingwold near York in England. … Simulation and Media Support The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems and advance computer simulation. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.”

“Project Inspire – Site rationalisation programme

27. The aim of the site rationalisation programme is to achieve more effective working between staff, originally spread over 15 different sites. After detailed study, the Dstl Board decided to rationalise Dstl’s activities onto three core sites-Porton Down, Fort Halstead and Portsdown West with an enclave at Alvestoke) by 2009. The plan was approved by Ministers in November 2003.

28. Following this, Dstl set up a project to cover the construction needed at Porton Down and Portsdown West to achieve the 3 core site plan and the provision of facilities management for these sites. An invitation to tender for the contract was produced, a preferred bidder selected and detailed contract negotiations concluded.

29. Prior to Serco’s appointment as Preferred Bidder on 10th August 2005 the tender evaluation had resulted in a clear understanding of the 3 bidders’ proposals and how they would impact upon Dstl in due diligence and beyond. As a result the 15-year facilities management contract was awarded to Serco Defence and Aerospace on 24th July 2006.”
