NYPD Used Reverse Warrants To Round Up Proud Boys Members Suspected Of Beating Antifa Members

from the bringing-Google's-data-slurping-to-a-hashtag-war dept

The first documented case of the NYPD using reverse warrants to find criminal suspects has been revealed. It made its appearance in perhaps the most 2019 of cases: the trial of two members of the Proud Boys facing assault charges for allegedly attacking members of Antifa.

Reverse warrants work this way: law enforcement agencies approach tech companies with geographic coordinates, asking for phone data for all phones within the geofenced area during a certain time frame. Using this data, law enforcement works its way backwards to probable cause, sifting through records to find what phones were in the area when the alleged crime was committed.

Obviously, this is a highly-imperfect way to track down suspects. For one, GPS data collected by companies like Google isn’t exactly precise. For another, “fenced-in” areas will always contain numerous people who aren’t criminals or even suspects, but the data turns them all into suspects until investigators sort them out. The more heavily-trafficked an area is, the more likely the chance officers will pursue the wrong phones/people.

This case was made a bit trickier by the victims’ unwillingness to cooperate with the investigation. As George Joseph reports for Gothamist, the lack of victims to question nudged the NYPD towards deploying the legally-dubious tactic.

The use of this surveillance technique has not been confirmed in New York City until now. An investigator for the Manhattan DA revealed it during testimony last week in a case involving a politically-charged assault from last year.

The defendants are members of the Proud Boys, a group of pro-Trump rightwing extremists who allegedly beat up four leftist protesters, believed to be associated with Antifa, outside an Upper East Side event last October. The four protesters refused to cooperate with police, and authorities were unable to identify them.

According to the New York Times’ account of this trial, the victims are evoked repeatedly in the court, despite no one knowing their names. This oddity has lead to the composition of sentences no one has ever read before.

The four who were assaulted refused to talk with the police. They were identified in an indictment only as Shaved Head, Ponytail, Khaki and Spiky Belt. Their whereabouts are unknown.

The two accused Proud Boys members are using the general perception of Antifa as violent to argue these attacks — which were caught on video — were actually acts of self-defense. The manhunt for the Proud Boys suspects may have taken the NYPD a bit longer, but the same Antifa that aggravated its own assault also provided law enforcement with plenty of useful information.

“There was a tremendous amount of what we call ‘doxxing,’” the detective, Thomas Mays, testified, using a slang term for the practice of disclosing personal information online. “Names that were given for the individuals.”

However you may feel about this comeuppance of the still-presumed-innocent Proud Boys members, the fact that the NYPD used this tactic successfully should be more than a bit chilling. Here’s what the NYPD demanded from Google.

According to the investigator’s testimony, authorities were looking for location records from “Google’s Android platform and Google-based apps, such as Google Maps, [that] utilize location service[s].” The warrant requested records from multiple sites, including where the conflict broke out on 82nd Street and other locations where participants in the clash may have been that evening.

New York City is home to a densely-packed 8.6 million people. Throwing up geofences almost anywhere in the city is bound to return hundreds, if not thousands, of records that have nothing to do with the crime being investigated. At that point, the data is in the NYPD’s hands and residents are at the mercy of investigators’ haystack-sorting skills.

To make matters worse, if the use of reverse warrants in Minnesota is any indication, judges aren’t being given enough information to make judgment calls on the mass harvesting of phone records in search of a suspect. In most cases, all they get are geographic coordinates that tell them next to nothing about the size — or population density — of the area targeted. And yet (or perhaps despite this), these warrants are being approved in minutes, suggesting judges are simply trusting the cops know what they’re doing with all their highly-technical toys.

In the end, these warrants are surveillance dragnets that grab everyone located inside the coordinates. And it’s left up to the discretion of these blue-suited fisherman to determine which of these hundreds of fish gets tossed back into the suspicion-free ocean. Reverse warrants aren’t really warrants. Warrants require probable cause. Reverse warrants require only guesswork and faith.

Re:

Plaintiff argues that the Dayton shooter was part of an organized group that either calls itself “Antifa” or uses “Antifa” in its name. Plaintiff also argues by implication that this so-called “Antifa” group is at least indirectly responsible for the violence carried out by Some Asshole in Dayton. But Plaintiff offers no facts in their argument to support these propositions. The argument is summarily dismissed.

Re: It's amazing to me...

Oh wow. 1 shooter with a history of obsessing over violence whose motives remain unknown but might have self-associated with the general concept of antifa.

Whereas you have supported Nazi’s and white supremicists, whose views and talking points have been explicitly cited as the motivation for multiple mass shootings this year alone.

I condemn the actions of the Dayton shooter. But to try to claim the high ground over the Dayton shooter when you keep crying about censorship of Prager U whose talking points were repeated by the El Paso shooter is super disingenuous.

But modern Kommunity Kulture Klubs and Kovens ( K4)mobbing which precipitates many mass shootings, does seem to push quite a few shooters to the right in their buhliefs; that I can prove.

I misread the title and thought it said "NYPD Used Reverse Warrants To Round Up Proud Boys Members Suspected Of Being Antifa Members".

I was all set to post a comment about how they probably apologized to the white supremacists, but then I read the article and realized my mistake. I guess it speaks to all the cases of authorities turning a blind eye to white supremacists and other abusers while going after the ones protesting such abuse that I mistook the title to mean that they went after suspected Antifa members.

My 12-year-old dumbphone will quit working in a few months, when Verizon shuts off 3G service. I might use the phone two or three times a week… enough that I’m strongly tempted to just drop the phone in the trash when it stops working and tell Verizon to cancel my account.

I wasn’t real happy with Verizon selling my tower location information to third parties (my phone just barely predates GPS); the mass of spyware built into modern smartphones makes them too much of a security problem to consider, and frankly, I suspect the same chipset is inside the cheap "feature phones", just not brought out with a fancy touchscreen. It would be crazy to develop a less-featured chipset just for a tiny portion of the market.

Re: Re:

There was an injured party and a crime. However, many assault cases are not prosecuted without at least one victim pressing charges. That’s why organized crime strongarms victims and witnesses. It’s not clear why the prosecutor went to such lengths without any involvement from them. Was it flagged as a hate crime? That may have different standards for prosecution.

Anonymous Coward says:

Re: Re:

The injured party is the State of New York. The reason why most "refused to prosecute" cases don’t go forward is because, without the victim’s testimony, the State doesn’t have enough evidence to go forward, not because it isn’t still a crime.

In this case, there’s still plenty of video evidence of the assault, so the case can go forward even without the cooperation of the victims.

i don't have a problem with these searches

Because I’m sure, if they wanted to, they could ID the victims as well. The problem I do have is that using that data for any other purpose.

This is why the military recommends that soldiers not wear fitbits or any other tracking apps, because it prefers its soldiers to not get blown up on their morning jog.

Its also why you should never take a cell phone, or any other device, with you when you’re scoping out a crime. And for gods sake, make sure you leave it home when you actually commit the crime.

Stephen T. Stone (profile) says:

Re: Re:

those alleged victims could have/would have implicated themselves as equally provocative and violent

They’re not alleged to be victims; video of the beatings exists. Even if — if! — they committed an overt act to provoke the Proud Boys into a response, the racist assholes were the ones who responded with violence. Your statement there reeks of someone asking a rape victim what she was wearing before she was raped.

R,ogs/s says:

Re: Re: Re: #fakerape for the win!

Wow, #fakerape and false equivalency ! Hard to argue with that, princess.

Or, for the record, contributory acts of violence frequently nullify/mitigate secondary acts of violence in a court of law, just like, Emma “fuck me in the ass, please, pleasee,, pleease ”Sulkowitz text messages begging her, "rapist ” to “fuck her in the ass” mitigated his acts after he likely fucked her in the ass preceding her Mattress Girl display (unlike kangaroo courts, or Star Trek Klngon tribunals ), proof exists in court rooms.

Maybe I should brush up on my Newspeak before. I respond to you again, so we can speak the same language of "proof ” as you cheer trial -by -press.

But even then you would ask for more “proof ”

re: Proudboys as trope

Its uber -interesting how neocons, racist ADL nembers, and the fascist left have demonized hetero-normative white males as Proudboy racists, while glossing over a significant fact that many of these so-called Proudboys have black /brown /mixed children.

https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/ny-proud-boys-trial-20190814-ezyd6h3rdzd2zjmmaqxeraafyu-story.html

But revealing that inconvenient fact might upset the racist, tribal supremacist narrative, and reveal ADL /Hillel /Israeli/NGO racism-and expose even more inconvenient truths, such as that same racist -tribalist involvement in actively and literally warring against, and dividing such families, and profiting via the social services revenue stream.

In an aside:
An interesting FOIA /data practices request would be to the Minnesota BCA regarding how they used Stingrays between 2004-15

Re: Re: Re:

The word, “kill, ” implying "to kill, ”aka intent, directed at equally nebulous targets, equally unadjudicated in a court of law, and as adjudicated by the mainstream partisan press press, which is as fond of the phrase "words have consequences ”as they are fond of unadjudicated post mortem “convictions."

So, by THAT standard (trial by hearsay in the press )he was antifa, the way so many mass shooters car crashers, and butter knifers are labelled altRight (Cosmo Setepenra, Scott Bierle, Gavin Long, Adam Lanza, Mathew Riehl, etc. ).

The real issue is CVE programs, unchecked, un monitored, and their manufactured terrorism coming home to roost.

Stephen T. Stone (profile) says:

Re:

thats pretty clear, dontchathink, Princess?

It would be if his motivations for targeting seemingly random victims and his own sister were as clear as the motives of Some Asshole in El Paso. But without a manifesto similar to the El Paso murderer’s to work from, we can’t know for sure whether the Dayton murderer committed his mass murder either in furtherance of a political ideology, out of an obsession with violence itself, or for some other reason.

R,ogs/s says:

Re: Re: Re:2 still waiting for evidence

As we saw in Orlando with Omar Mateen, many of the dead and wounded were killed by police bullets.

Do you have proof that the bullet that killed “his sister ” actually came from his weapon, Stone, or fo you just repeat whatever the ADLified media tells you to repeat ?

Ill wait for you to put that bong away, but I wont hold my breath /s The Israelfication of American police, preceded by zionizing trips to the desert, seems to be re -creating the Palestinian Exodus of 1948 complete with manufactured terrorists , but this time, in the USAI

R,ogs/s says:

I made my point

I would think that reputable persons, regardless of politics, would take astand against so -called radicalzation tactics,deployed in fellow cituzens by all the usual suspects.

But for some reason, each side cherishes their ability to radicalize the others under cover of internet.

FBI CVE is a mirror of hat Brits and Jews did during the Palestinian Exodus of 1948, and these mass shooters are created exactly the way Israelis create terrorists.

I,would think Israelfication tactics would bother decent people, but, I am clearly wrong here ,at TD.

R,ogs/s says:

Re: Re: I made my point

Mike, please provide evidence of what you say about me, or my comments*, I will be glad to refute or concede your specific general points on any one.

But I provided a link to the Dayton shooters actual, direct statements against alleged fascists, and those statements preceded his actions against who he eventually targeted, for whatever reason.

And, there is ample evidence that right wing elements in Dayton, international elements elsewhere, and speech monitors from other places are targeting these men and boys well before they go ballistic.

Equally, a substantial body of evidence -including your own writings -substantiate that an Israelified narrative, and FBI /DHS /NGO/ police tactical CVE social engineering, including Fusion Center monitoring of first amendment speakers online and off contributes to the pre -ballistics in these events.

Then, their web presence is carefully scrubbed and filtered before the politicized public. These are indisputable facts, ddicccumented in the uber -fact based MSM /s .

So: where is the conspiracy that you claim, without evidence -that I reference?

And if truth is pollution, well, I guess I give up.
Perhaps I had long suffered a delusion that you made sense, practiced reasoned, balanced journalism with integrity, and now you burst my bubble, overlooking the shooters own statements.

But exactly what about the shooters ACTUAL STATEMENTS online, in the link I provided, indicate that he was not against fascists, aka antifa?

The larger point, is that CVE manufactured domestic terror creation is a real thing too. Do you also call that “conspiracy theory? ”

Go tell that to Trevor Aaronson. He writes about manufactured terrorism constantly.

And if you could link those statements to the mass murders as his motivation for committing those murders, you might have a point.

You’re the only one talking about conspiracy theories here, son.

I had long suffered a delusion that you made sense, practiced reasoned, balanced journalism with integrity, and now you burst my bubble, overlooking the shooters own statements

Nobody is overlooking the statements made by Some Asshole in Dayton. But unless those statements are directly and definitively declared to be the motive for his act of mass violence, there isn’t any sense in leaping to that conclusion. In contrast, the mass murderer in El Paso provided a manifesto that clearly linked his political beliefs to his motivation for those murders.

exactly what about the shooters ACTUAL STATEMENTS online, in the link I provided, indicate that he was not against fascists, aka antifa?

The El Paso asshole made clear the connection between his politics and his act of violence in his manifesto. What did the Dayton asshole leave behind that clearly and directly links his politics to his violence?

CVE manufactured domestic terror creation is a real thing too

And Techdirt regularly publishes stories about how the FBI manufactures terrorists to score “wins” (i.e., good press).

Re: Re: Re:2 rubber /glue, plus partisan bias

In case I havent been clear: my work is part performance art, part journalism, and entirely a reaction formation to my abject horror at watching K 4 adopt the tactics of the KKK (K 3).

In that light, keep in mind that I reported on the first alleged Somali manufactured terrorist in the US, long before Masnick got internetz famous -and then had K 4 and other sordid scum up my ass for more than a decade, because I practiced non -biased journalism( which means that I neither codoned nor accepted ADLified narrative supremacy, unlike TD ).

As for linking mass shooters alleged manifestos to their alleged crimes, where alleged mass shootings occured, allegedly by their actions, I urge you to study the term “due process,” and its cousin in law “trial by jury” to understand that NO MASS SHOOTERS MOTIVE CAN BE INFERRED, OR KNOWN without a trial by their peers, with evidence, followed by conviction, and as such, no alleged manifesto can be proven to be any one shooters any more than the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion can be proven to be a Rothschild plot.

Now, to your other bizarre, evidence free point, that I promulgate “conspiracy theories”-can you provide evidence of that?

Because all I have done is basic gumshoe investigative journalism, and provided links, and facts across a period of time , where such indicate a pattern, replicated across data sets, specifically, K 4 radicalized shooters who are frequently radicalized by incessant, ADL rhetoric fueled community policing, aka, organized gang stalking.

So, yeah, theres that. With shitloads of evidence.

So, if you wish to provide evidence (which neither you or Mike has done) of my delusional theoretical basis, please do so, and then, in all fairness, I can refute or concede the veracity of your accusations.

Now, about your derelict faith in our modern police state, and your sheeple -esque faith in crisis PR sponsored narrative, I urge you to investigate the Pulse nightclub shooting, and how many innocent gay partygoers were slaughtered by SWAT team bullets, as G4S worked its "parallel colliding investigations” magic in sync with FBI CVE programs, against a man who was the son of an FBI asset.

I will not provide links, because they literally are everywhere for even the laziest Google user to find.

But its simply a gross mischaracterization of my online work to claim that I engage in conspiracy "theories” when in fact, conspiracy facts are everywhere you look in these cases, starting with gross silence about FBI/DHS/NGO/Community policing, utilizing Fusion Center tracking of targeted persons, and bizarre “communitarian policing”.

As for the Dayton shooter, his statements alone are evidence enough for Fusion Center informants, ATAP radicalize private contractors, and local police to begin targeting him for hidden, investigatory privileged "threat assessment" aka Israelified “othering”and the attendant online/offline stalking by police/community policing that follows such profiling.

So, as you ask of me, thus: " unless those statements are directly and definitively declared to be the motive for his act of mass violence, there isn’t any sense in leaping to that conclusion.”

I ask you to ask those in Fusion Centers, snagogues, churches, and poluce departments in Dayton OH. I mean- it is "they” who have that answer. But I personally have documented evidence of political elements in that area that do EXACTLY what I claim.

As so many faux-leftists are fond of saying “words have consequences.” So, no small surprise then, that the right has now used that, and radicalized a leftist, who specifically stated that fascists should be killed-and then, killed people in a hipster bar.

Like any/all of these cases, the only constant is gun control centered press, and hidden radicalization. But in DVIC high policing, proof CANNOT, and DOES NOT exist, in any of these cases, because the facts have not been tried in a court of law.
