It's after 2 a.m. in the morning, my deadline is tomorrow, and I have been beaten up by the local police and my right elbow is sorely hurting, but I need to write down exactly what happened to me today before I go to sleep. Otherwise I will forget important details.

I was harassed, beaten, and shocked with a Tazer-like gun in my front yard before my wife and children, and then abused for 6 hours by the ADL-trained local police. I have every reason to believe it is because of my journalistic investigation into 9/11. I have been threatened before in my career as a journalist, but this is the first time I have been intentionally beaten and abused – by the cops.

Pssst... Mind_Virus - Come closer - I suggest you quickly edit your post and change the title to normal Caps instead of all caps... Or you could just lay back and wait for one of the mods to do it...

You mean they let him live?? Well then, there's still hope.

Closer and closer we get to a dark nightmare.

So let me get one thing straight...

He has NO proof that it was linked to his 9/11 research and is now claiming that was why he was beaten.

Could have been anything really...

I think its pretty safe it was due to 9/11.

Just out of curiosity, why join now and post straight away?
Im sure as an investigative journalist you have come across this site many times, im guessing its a fantastic resource and could provide some great leads.

I am sorry for the suffering you have gone through for the 911 cause! I imagine its very hard to have to watching over your back, constantly, espically with children and a family.

Are you sure they were cops, undercover or not, could they not be from a different gov org, and i just can't understand the arm's, in a quiet neighbourhood they may as well have arrived in Luminos vests and a screaming day glo sticker "FBI".

Be safe and take care, I for one will keep a close eye on this thread if anything else does happen, please post im sure that many will be watching this thread with great interest and if anything untoward does happens its recorded

Wait up...

There's NO indication this was related to his 9/11 research. Not saying it couldn't have been, but there's no reason to suspect it is, in light of a more plausible explanation. This guy is very, very outspoken when it comes to cops, and Chicago cops in particular. He was very active, as I understand it, as a protester against police brutality.

Of course it doesn't make the treatment justified, but for him or anyone else to automatically assume it's got something to do with 9/11 is jumping the gun. They didn't say anything about 9/11, they didn't even hint at it, at least based on the description he gave.

They were obviously pretty pissed at him though, if his account was accurate.

Well, a quick google search on the fella brings up a plethera of articles on his 9/11 stuff and other govt hidden atrocities. So I'm think'n it's a safe bet to assume he got his butt beat for it.

The Cliff notes:

Bollyn spends the day making harassing phone calls to the press office of a foreign embassy.

He sees a strange car in the neighborhood and calls 911 claiming that a car of armed men is driving around his neighborhood even when he did not see any weapons.

He acts in a suspicious and threatening manner and is restrained by the police.

He is surprised that the police responded quickly to his 911 call.

He claims that there are no gangs in his neighborhood, but he ignores the recent arrests of a couple of local neo nazi skinheads on drugs and weapons charges.

You seem to know alot about this guy Howard? Care to inform us how you know so much? Google?

Read the article.

as for the skinheads, that was a google bit, but I'm familiar with that area, so I didn't buy his claim that there are no gangs in Hoffman Estates. The town is riddled with them.

That explains it. Sorry, I admit, I didn't read the article.

On topic: I also think he is jumping the gun about it being related to his 9/11 research. Seems like he has had some run ins with the cops before?

I don't understand this part of the story.

My older brother had posted bail and shortly after midnight, I was pushed out onto the street with a good two-mile walk home.

No one in his family would pick him up?

Why didn't his brother take him home?

Couldn't he call a cab?

To be honest Howard, he seems like the type of person who likes to exagerate. That's only speculation by me, but from what I've been reading here, I think it fits the bill.
