Arm yourself against police injustice; get a smartphone.

In 1948, George Orwell wrote his famous “1984″, a novel in which a hyperbolic version of then existing English Socialism watches its society on every street corner, and even in their yards and homes. His writing was prophetic. The persistant conflagration of the Fourth of Amendment is the single greatest threat to your liberty. What Orwell DID NOT foresee is that, simultaneously, every single “prole” would possess, on their person, a camera which could broadcast any and all footage within minutes of recording. THAT’S OUR WEAPON, and recently, the Supreme Court of the United states affirmed your right to use that weapon to record police activity. Just as the Second Amendment was designed to ensure the citizenry would never be unarmed and helpless against tyranny, so the First Amendment stands for the proposition that the government shall have no monopoly on information, knowledge, memorial, and history. Your weapon in this fight is your phone, and the internet. When you carry a phone with a camera, you’re not just possessing something fun or convenient. You carry the power to record irrefutable evidence. Keep it charged. Keep it ready. Record EVERY badge, every word. Mount a “go-pro” in your vehicle. Activate it at every traffic stop. Don’t be a victim. Record. Record everything, and tell them in advance and simultaneously that you’re recording. This isn’t a quip. This is important for your liberty and future. Record all authority, and all interactions with them. Arm yourself against police injustice; get a smartphone. was last modified: May 27th, 2016 by Alex DeMarco

Jury Acquits Client of Felony Terroristic Threats

The Felony Terroristic threats statute is a very broad offense. Minn. Stat. 609.713 provides “Whoever threatens, directly or indirectly, to commit any crime of violence with purpose to terrorize another” is guilty of a felony. An insincere “I’m gonna kill you” or “do that and your dead” can result in a felony charge. Client was charged with felony terroristic threats. It was alleged he confronted the mother of his child over the whereabouts of his child. She had disappeared with his daughter for nearly a year, and he had not seen or heard from her. He confronted her in a public place on the same morning her children were taken by social services. She manufactured a story that he had threatened to kill her boyfriend, who was with her, and that he reached for a knife. By entering evidence of the current child dispute and citing it as a motive for her to lie, and by noting the inconsistency of her testimony with the video, Alex De Marco secured a “not guilty” verdict on the charge of felony terroristic threats. The defense presented no witnesses other than the defendant. If you’ve been charged with terroristic threats, you should know it is one of the most difficult cases for the state to prove at trial if you have a lawyer that knows the law and the rules of evidence. Don’t just hire any lawyer. Invest in your defense. Call Cavaleri & De Marco today. 651-705-8829 Jury Acquits Client of Felony Terroristic Threats was last modified: May 7th, 2015 by Alex DeMarco
