Hello, my name is Ashley. I have resided in Houston, TX all of my life. I am a graduate from the University of Houston. I volunteer here and work in Human Services. My family is here and I love my state. I started this petition because of my own horrible ongoing experience with high tech terrorism/crime. As a result of what I have endured, I want to not only protect myself, but protect my community from being victimized too.
High tech crime is increasing. Technology is evolving and we must meet this evolution using a defensive approach. We can no longer wait until we become victims. We have an opportunity to implement changes in our laws and policies now, so that we are protected in the near future from high tech terrorism. High tech criminals are not just “hacking” or “hackers” of computer systems - now they are hacking cell phones, digital TV signals, GPS devices, radios, iPads, iPods and virtually any device that you own. Soon all old technology will phase out and will be a thing of the past. We must change the laws in our state now, so that we are protected!
I am proposing a law that would make it Illegal to design, possess, purchase, operate, or use an electronic or electromagnetic device(direct energy), biological device or telecommunication system to harm a human, animal, or any type of system in the State of Texas. This law will protect us from falling victim to the new generation of crime that has made its way here to the Lone Star State. The time to start fighting back is now. With this law, we are protecting ourselves, our privacy, our money, our families, our community & our children.
In 2004, Michigan passed the "Michigan House Bill Public Act No. 256", which in their state, makes it ILLEGAL to use a harmful electronic or electromagnetic device, biological devices, telecommunication system, or any “device designed to emit or radiate or that, as a result of its design, emits or radiates an electronic or electromagnetic pulse, current, beam, signal, or microwave that is intended to cause harm to others, or cause damage to, destroy, or disrupt any electronic or telecommunications system or device, including, but not limited to, a computer, computer network, or computer system”.
What did they know about the future of Electromagnetic Devices/Weapons?
They knew that these weapons/devices are dangerous. Especially when in the hands of domestic terrorist, criminal organizations etc. Electromagnetic weapons have a long history. Energy Weapons were developed by the Military decades ago. For example, the Active Denial System is an electromagnetic weapon developed by the military for remote crowd control. This device operates in stealth; it emits forms of energy, frequencies, radiation, microwaves at unruly crowds of people to detour them from attack or advancement. The invisible rays of energy, can non-lethally penetrate (go through) the human body, without being detected, affecting any of the 10 body systems, it burns the skin, interrupts cognitive processes (causing confusion, disorientation, severe pain, nausea, headache). These devices operate at the speed of light, like most direct energy weapons (consider how fast your computer connects to a website, or how fast you come up with a thought). These devices operate faster than that.
These devices also have alternative capabilities. They have the ability to affect the human psyche (mind), human behavior, and plainly stated “mind control”. In the Space Preservation Bill proposed by Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2001, the following technologies enabling access to human brain, human health impairment or killing of people were named: "land-based, sea-based or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotropic, sonic, laser, or other energies directed at individual persons, or targeted populations for the purpose of information, mood management, or mind control of such persons or populations.
All a terrorist (super-hacker, rouge ex-military weapons specialist, gang member, investor, hoping to turn a profit off of high tech crime) would need is your coordinates, which can be obtained from your IP address, and they can attack you from anywhere. The Free Electron Laser, another military grade direct energy weapon, used by the Navy, can turn any figure into visible light remotely. Which means that anyone with access to a device such as this can X-RAY you in your home, your work, your car, when you are playing with your kids, when you are with your spouse, etc. Additionally, research on these direct energy weapons has found that when these energy weapons are tuned into the earth’s ionosphere, they create audio frequencies. This means that criminals no longer have to tap your phones, access your computers, or steal your purse to get information about you. Information on how to construct these dangerous electromagnetic weapons are readily available if you go to uspto.gov.
What if you are harassed and attacked, remotely? It does not have to be by a terrorist. It could be by a gang. How will you prove it? What if they are using an e-weapon? What will the police know to look for? How will you know what approach to take? How will you protect yourself? If there is no law in place, what crime will they be charged with? What agency will be investigating? We need these laws so that we can answer all of those questions without hesitation. Think about 9/11, and the unsuspecting horrible tragedy that occurred out of the blue. We were not prepared. Let’s start preparing now.
We need a law similar to the one in Michigan, making it Illegal to design, possess, purchase, use, operate, or use a harmful electronic or electromagnetic device, biological device, telecommunication system or any device designed to emit or radiate or that, as a result of its design, emits or radiates an electronic or electromagnetic pulse, current, beam, signal, or microwave that is intended to cause harm to others, or cause damage to, destroy, or disrupt any electronic, or telecommunications system, or device, including, but not limited to, a computer, computer network, or computer system in the State of Texas. It would be a Felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison with no statute of limitations. This law protects us. It protects our privacy, protects our families, and protects our community.
The future implications that come with this new style of crime, where a device can be constructed and used to physically, non-lethally, contact any area of anyone’s body at any time, is frightening. This device renders you helpless, and there is no defense. You cannot hide, nor defend yourself. You cannot protect your family, your children -from a device that operates at the speed of light and in stealth. So, we must protect ourselves with this LAW. At least with some protection in place, we are moving in the right direction.
We are creating awareness and changing policy here and now. My hope is that we will get this law passed in Texas. Everything in our society exists on technology and now crime is way ahead of us. Take back.
Please sign my petition. Remember that each day is a blessing and your freedom was afforded to you at birth, and no one has the right to take it away.
God Bless Texas & Thank You!
