The DOC articles update

It’s been awhile since we’ve touched on this subject. Within those articles, we had withheld the identification of our source, and will continue to do so. However, we have been granted permission to release the name of the facility to which the articles discussed. If you need a “refresher,” the articles can be found here, here, and here.

As you may recall, we spoke of how the whistleblower had gone months without employment, a common trend among those who speak out against law enforcement. In recent times, even members of our platform have recieved messages from people alleging to be former employees, thoug some of their profiles state they are current officers.

The articles, to which we spoke of, derived from an correctional facility out of Oklahoma. Mabel Bassett Correctional center has a long history of alleged cover-up as well as corruption among the officers. Beyond this, there are many other accusations regarding the facility. In one review, the individual alleges,

It’s infested with mole,kitchen has roaches and medical is the worst. An inmate received notice from medical that she was exposed to HEPATITIS A and medical refused to give her the vaccine, so now how many inmates have been effected in this facility????

Other accusations, some to which had been confirmed, range from officers refusing to stop fights to a potential cover-up of a death (unconformed.)

While this article is a basic update, that isn’t what caught my attention. As stated, members of our team had gotten some messages from an alleged former officer. Recapping one of the messages, the individual wrote, “I got a random message not long ago asking about the place and I looked at the reviews and saw ur comment.” When asking about the comment, I was informed that he had no memory of writing anything regarding the facility, and so we looked.

Searching on Google reviews and Facebook, it would appear that the statement was, in fact partially true. There was a comment left on Facebook, an oversight perhaps. Upon showing the member the screenshot, he did recall it, stating it was to bring awareness for those negatively effected by this place. However, the messaging person wanted information about our whistleblower. Details we cannot, and will not provide.

WoC has had a long standing policy of not revealing sources. Should the individual contact me for this information, I will be obligated into citing our policy to them. This protects our sources and prevents potential retaliation. Over the years, we have learned many things. One of these things is nobody ever asks for sources without having a reason. While the reason may very well be for information, as a platform we have an obligation to protect them; we simply can’t maintain trust and credibility if we reveal those who trust us to withold their identities.

This article isn’t much, just an update with some other details. Unless we get something more critical, we are planning to end fiture updates regarding this facility here. While we still haven’t revealed some information, such as the name of the captain, it’s not due to the lack of knowledge. In fact, we using nothing more than a lastname, we were able to find the captain on Facebook. The rest of the information is being stored away for the “just in case” factor. While we hope to never need to, we will only do another article if the facility does any future retaliation against our sources.

Corey Feldman accused of filing copyright claim

Corey Feldman, child actor turned activist, had released a documentary, ‘My truth: the rape of two Corey’s.’ Among the diehard Feldman fans, the documentary was highly appraised, however, that’s where the applause ends. For others, it was viewed as a ‘circus act’ poorly constructed. For many, the documentary left more questions than answers, some even claimed that it hadn’t really proven the sexual abuse claims, and then there is the ‘money grab’ accusation, which we will get into a bit.

As stated, Feldman had released a documentary. His explanation behind it was to ‘expose the pedophile elites in Hollywood.’ However, the documentary, according to multiple sources, only names one; hence the start of the many questions. We were unable to see the documentary in full, but from what one of our team did see, Feldman spoke of a childhood masturbation session. It was, at this point, he stopped watching.

The fact the documentary fails to actually name anybody within this “elite group,” has lead many to believe that the documentary was a ploy for cash and not truth, as Feldman claimed. They back this claim with the fact that Feldman, if he were about truth, would had made the documentary open for all to see. However, what he did do is stamp a $20.00 per view to it. Now, we can continue diving into this documentary, but we have a DMCA to discuss.

Recently, journalist Meko Haze (Discuss Global,) did a multi-livestream. Within this livestream, he watched, and commentated on Feldman’s documentary. While this does fall under ‘fair use,’ since it was clearly done for commentary purposes, Feldman, and his publishing group, apparantly disagreed. So, let’s clear this up, was it copyright infringement?

When looking up the definition to ‘fair use commentary,’ we got this: “

fair use is any copying of copyrighted material done for a limited and “transformative” purpose, such as to comment upon, criticize, or parody a copyrighted work. Such uses can be done without permission from the copyright

This means, that because the journalist had clearly acted in this regard, it was not a copyright infringement, as Feldman claimed in his DMCA report. It also enforces the belief that the DMCA was only filed because the platform, “Discuss,” was critical of his work, as any journalist would be. While the video has been removed from Youtube, it can still be viewed here.

Notation: Should we obtain a copy of the DMCA claim, we will include it in this article.

Handling a dox threat

This article isn’t like the ones we typically write. Instead, this is a basic guide into handling a dox threat, as well as handling the situation after a dox. My platform, and myself, aren’t new to this. In 2017, while facing a three year smear campaign, I had been doxxed, alongside my family. Needless to say, I have had plenty of time to prepare for another round.

Initial threat

If you have never been through something like this before, the mere threat of being doxxed can be a very serious element to contend to. Having your information made publically available, without your consent, not only places you in potential danger, but those around you as well.

Rather or not the dox happened, you must remain calm. Remember, if you go into a panic, you aren’t able to think clearly and therefore miss potential evidence.

Collect Evidence

Always keep a record of the evidence. The more you have, the easier it is to prove. If the would-be doxxer is broadcasting his intentions, screencap it. The same goes if they are bragging about past doxxings. Remember, doxxing can be a felony, it can have added charges such as stalking, and you cannot afford to not have enough evidence.

Find Support

In most cases, pertaining doxxing, the individual has a history of the behavior. With that in mind, finding former victims, who have been threatened or doxxed, may be critical. The reason for this is it demonstrates a past behavior. In the law enforcement field, the past behaviors will often dictate those of the future.

Centralize

As you collect evidence, especially from other victims, find a way to centralize it. By having it in one location, law enforcement is able to get to it mich more quickly. In the case of Vincent Nicotra, we have a gallery for this very purpose.

Statements

This is especially essential when reporting it to law enforcement, links provided below. Having a written, or typed, statement will allow you to summarize without the pressure. If going to the police with a prewritten statement, always be sure to sign the end of it.

Reporting

In cases to which there are multiple victims, this maybe a challenge. When reporting, and using other victim names, try to be accurate. If you do not know their real names, try using an alias they are known by. For example:

Youtuber: John Doe

Though it isn’t their actual name, it does give law enforcement a means of contacting the individual. So who do you report these crimes to?

First off, you want to start with your local law enforcement agency, this begins the legal trail. If all they can do is take a report, that’s fine, don’t be discouraged, you are making a trail that dhows you have reported the situation. Now, once you do this, you may file an ic3 report.

An ic3 report, as it’s commonly called, is the cybercrime division of the FBI. By this point, you would had hopefully collected the evidence needed, should they ask for it. However, it never hurts to mention, within your report, other victims, centralized evidence location (if applicable,) and any information you may know regarding the doxxer.

Vincent Nicotra: Doxxing

Earlier this year, people witnessed the moment journalist, Chris Hansen, terminated his web designer, Vincent Nicotra. The termination was a result of countless unethical behaviors that ranged from false DMCA claims to doxxing. While you would think the lesson would had been clear, it appears that Nicotra is back to doxxing.

Nicotra implying that she was doxxed. Being that he posted this, implies he had it done, or did it himself.

Doxxing

Doxxing is a common method for obtaining personal information about a targeted individual. If used to harass the target, doxxing can be classified as a form of stalking, one of many reasons it is illegal. Illegal doxxing is the method of obtaining personal information and posting it online with malicious intent, exactly what Vincent has a history of doing.

Due to the nature and legalities of doxxing, social media sites have options for reporting this behavior. Twitters’, for instance, can be found here. Beyond going to social media, a victim can report these crimes to agencies such as the FBI. Information on this can be found here.

With each dox Vincent continues on innocent people, it is obvious that he either doesn’t care about the legal effects or is completely oblivious to them. The facts are simple, in a case such as this:

  • What Vincent is doing is illegal.
  • His doxxing can be classified as stalking, especially since he has doxxed some people several times.
  • Vincent can go to prison for these crimes.
  • Being that most of his victims are spread throughout several states, he could face felony charges.

While it is unlikely that Vincent will ever stop without legal involvement, we still issue this article as a warning to him. Furthermore, we present this article with the hopes that his victims are able to get the justice they deserve.

Vincent Nicotra: gallery

It is, without say, that articles go along way. However, evidence goes even further. We have decided to make another gallery, documenting Nicotra’s unethical, and potentially illegal, behaviors. This, like the Onision gallery, will be updated as needed.

UPDATE: We would like to thank everybody who has posted images. It is through this, we were/are able to collect evidence in the hopes it will finally bring justice to those targeted by Vincent Nicotra.

Updates

Yeah, we know…this didn’t take long. However, when running around in the cyber world, we found this little gem.
An apology given by Nicotra, at some point. This, as to date, is the only time he has taken accountability.

The Nicotra scheme

Introduction

Former “web designer,” Vincent Nicotra, has been the target of various unethical and even illegal activities. While we had been following this, mildly, that has since changed. If you haven’t been following the Nicotra situation, let’s get you caught up.

Vincent, of “Ven interactive Media“, was originally in charge of websites for journalist, Chris Hansen. Nicotra recently was given the public spotlight when he filed multiple false DMCA claims against various Youtubers. However, his criminal, and unethical, activities didn’t stop there.

Doxxing Claims

Even prior to Nicotra’s termination from Hansen, there have been accusations in regards to doxxing. While we normally don’t discuss hearsay, there are multiple individuals making this claim. Oxford defines doxxing as, the “search for and publishment of private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.”

While doxxing is illegal, it is often hard to get an actual conviction. In many cases, it’s simply to difficult to establish who the doxxer actually is. However, that’s if the doxxer plays it smart, something Vincent has clearly failed to do. While he has been exposed by his victims, and countless others, it appears to have no effect on Vincent’s behavior.

DMCA claims

Alongside the doxxing accusations, Nicotra is also accused of filing false DMCA claims. Baked Salmon and Wes Moast, being a constant target of such claims. Recently Baked Salmon even had his channel shutdown as a result of Vincent’s false DMCA reports. While the channel has since been restored, this doesn’t change the malicious intent behind Vincent’s actions.

Baked Salmon is an individual who has a history of being critical of Hansen and Nicotra. It is possible that the subjects within the video is what lead Nicotra’s actions. Even if this were to be true, it doean’t make the action any less illegal. While Hansen has, in recent times, apologized for the false DMCA claims, Nicotra has only continued to make the false reports. So what exactly is DMCA?

A DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) claim is intended to prevent copyright infringement. However, Vincent has apparantly forgotten that. In filing a DMCA claim, Vincent is claiming property ownership of the videos posted. The problem, however, is upon watching the videos targeted, it’s obvious that the claim is false. What Nicotra may not be aware of is section 512(f) of the DMCA. Section 512(f) of the DMCA act places legal liability on any person who willfully, and knowingly, files a false claim; remember, a DMCA claim is a legally binding document and can be used in court.

The computer and the FBI

One tidbit that has been circulating Twitter, in regards of Nicotra, is the infamous computer. A victim of Onision had apparantly sent a computer, containing evidence against Onision, to Vincent. Upon recieving the computer, it was supposed to be forwarded to the FBI. Sounds like a great plan, right? The problem is, and recently confirmed by Chris Hansen himself, is Vincent never actually sent it. Instead, after months of holding it, he sent it back to the victim. By doing this, it raises questions as to rather or not Nicotra was purposefully trying to derail the Onision investigation. In the end, we may never know the real reason as to why he did this.

Conclusion

Regardless of how you speak out, if it’s against Nicotra, you can ensure that problems will occur. Upon being terminated, the website, “Hansen vs. Predators,” was essentially taken hostage by Nicotra. Since the time of this event, the website has been put up for auction. Various other individuals, who have spoken against Nicotra, were met with insults, DMCA claims, and even the loss of their channels.

Nicotra, appears to be trying to salvage his reputation while destroying it. Filled with many allegations, some being sexual harassment, to which we haven’t even begun to cover, it leads us to ask, “why doesn’t he simply stop?” As with most things, this is a question to which we may never get an answer. In the meantime, the people he has targeted have waged an all-out virtual war against this apparent abuser.

Completely unemployable: former DOC officer speaks to us again.

Last month, we did a couple of articles in regards of a former correctional officer turned whistleblower. This article is an update on their situation. We like to think that doing the right thing means being rewarded, this is not the case.

As you maybe aware, the whistleblower’s former department caught onto who they were. Once this happened, they were issued a cease and disist via email. However, the Department of Corrections didn’t stop there. Through a recorded phone call, we were able to verify that the former officer resigned due to ongoing abuse and unethical treatment from their acting captain. The abuse extended to not only inmates, but to officers the captain did not like.

Recap of the resignation

The officer, who we only identify as “whistleblower,” resigned in December, 2019. Through bank records, we saw what they identified as “the final straw.” The department deposited their paycheck into their account in late November. However, early December the same department somehow withdrew their entire paycheck out of the account. As of this time, the bank has refused to comment in regards to how this happened.

Further documentation has revealed that the department intended to place the officer on what they called “secondary” payroll, a move often done as a form of punishment. However, this never happened. What transpired can only be described as sadistic. Once the pay was removed, the captain, as verified in audio recorded calls, placed the officer back on “primary” pay. By doing this, it negated the secondary payroll, thus making it where the officer got no pay until January. The targeting didn’t end there.

What’s happening

Since leaving the department, the former officer has been deamed completely unhirable. Living on only the money saved in their bank account, the noose of time has a constant effect on them. Allegedly, the department has fabricated the situation, claiming the individual was terminated for violating a policy, one that we have already shown to not exist. We, as a media platform, have been assisting the whistleblower, locating potential places of employment in their area. At this point, we have began assisting with their bills when able.

This entire series has opened a floodgate into what happens to those who refuse to conform. It demonstrates a warning to anybody who seeks to be in law enforcement: “join the blue brotherhood or pay the price.” Sadly, this individual’s convictions caused them to be against this uniformed, unspoken code. However, this isn’t an isolated event. In the past, we have seen similar articles to this. It also demonstrates the amount of power behind these agencies.

Insider Report

Onision 9-1-1 call (transcript)

If you don’t know, journalist Chris Hansen arrived at the home of Gregory Jackson (Onision.) Rather than speaking to Hansen, Greg called the police. Below is the word-for-word transcript of the call.

Dispatcher: 911, what are you reporting?

O: Okay, thank you.

D: Okay, you’re welcome. 

Department of Corrections: Article II (insider information)

Previously, we had covered a few aspects of the department of Corrections and their operations. You may read that article here. Today, we are going to be expanding on this. Furthermore, as our insider has been discovered by their former department, giving an update to that situation. The intention of this article is to provide more inside information provided by an individual who would know best-a former officer. As before, their identity is being withheld to, at bear minimum, protect them from those who may wish to target them online.

Smackdown happy

We see it often in videos, the police brutally assaulting a person when it isn’t needed. However, we don’t see how officers often get away with this. According to our insider, a lot of it boils down to the wording on their reports. One example we were given is as follows: “when an officer utilizes use-of-force, rather justified or not, they are usually coursed on how the report should reflect that. For instance, if an officer body slams an inmate to the floor, a common occurance, their report will state that they ‘assisted’ the inmate to the floor. They do this because any report written maybe subject for court use; the officer can get into legal trouble if they state they body slammed the offender.” According to our insider, this is the big part of the foundation to getting out of legal responsibility for any injuries.

In cases where the force wasn’t warranted, the department has a tendancy to “doctor” reports, the classic cover-up. While this is publically denounced by D.O.C. it is a normal occurance. Furthermore, if an offender attempts to defend themselves from this, they are slapped with additional charges. These charges may include assaulting an officer, which leads to a longer prison sentence.

When the officer uses force, it is very common for jokes to be made, at the offender’s expense. These people take great pride, from what our insider saw, in laying the “smackdown” on those who may not be able to fight back. “Officers will generally make jokes such as ‘damn, talk about a rag doll effect, sucks to be them, and so on,” according to the insider. Officers, in many ways, are expected to have this mentality. Failing to do so usually results in being made a target by those who outrank you.

The “blue” brotherhood

“During my stint in working for D.O.C., I met a captain who was hardcore about the brotherhood. In the end, because I refused to act like the rest, I questioned him, I was made a target,” according to the source. Cadets who enter the department, with the “brotherhood” mentality, often find a high paying career. According to our source, if you aren’t one of these new officers, you are harassed and bullied into resignation, this also applies to seasoned officers.

While working there, our insider informed us of some of the harassment endured because of their former captain. Pay check being withheld for a month, constantly being in his office for various, and even petty reasons, and at the time they resigned, for violating a policy that did not exist within the department. As we are told, the above mentioned are only a few examples.

We asked the officer, aside the harassment, what was the final straw? What lead you to resign? Their answer is as follows: “the final straw, for me, was the captain getting the warden involved. I was supposed to go to a meeting, regarding violating a non-existant policy, a meeting that I knew meant my termination. The captain had already fucked me out of my pay, which meant, since we were paid monthly, I would go two months without a check. I simply had enough of their bullshit games, the amount of control over my life, and how they used threats to make us do what they wanted, even if we felt it unethical.”

We went on to inquire about the policy, we asked what policy did they violate, exactly? “Honestly, as stupid as this sounds, I drove myself to another facility, to which I was required to be at. I didn’t have the money to get to my home facility so taking a state car wasn’t an option,” was the very quick response given. As we could tell, it appeared that our insider actually violated the “blue brotherhood” code in several ways.

As we can tell, and as generalized law enforcement has revealed, this is a career of being a thug. Those who are thugs last. On the other hand, if you opt out of this mentality, you are bullied into resignation or even terminated. If there is no “justified” means, they fabricate one. Their job, according to the insider, is to ensure inmates don’t break out of the prison, do what they are told when they are told, and to ensure the institution operates smoothly.

Isolation

A disturbing concept of prison comes in the form of the “segregated housing unit” (S.H.U.) the unit is essentially a jail within a prison. This unit is classified as a “maximum” security unit. What this means for inmates is: they are locked down 23hrs a day, aside from weekends. They get one hour on a secured yard, Monday-Friday only. If an inmate gets in trouble, they maybe sent to this unit pending investigation. The investigation can take upwards of 30 days to complete. However, this month is actually extended as weekends aren’t counted. This means that if an investigation takes the full thirty days, the inmate will actually be in this unit for approx. 45 days. It was further noted that our insider has, by first hand account, seen the mental deteriation of those locked down.

Synopsis of the information

From this, and our previous article, it is clear to see how this system is in shambles. A system that treats human beings worst than animals needs a complete overhaul. Worst yet, we are only about halfway through our notes. Should there be enough interest, we will happily do article III on this.

Officers laughing and joking about injuring people is appauling. Officers targeting their own, simply for wanting to do their jobs, is just as bad. We often ask ourselves, “why aren’t there any good officers?” These articles are demonstrating the answer, as provided by, first hand experience.

Whistle-blower update

Our insider has informed us that after releasing our previous article, there has been some rather suspicious activity around their house. Daily, in some cases several times a day, police cars have been witnessed slowing down in front of their home. In several instances, the cars have been observed coming to a complete stop, the officer watches the home for a few minutes, and proceeds to drive away. Furthermore, they have informed us that several “unmarked” cars have been seen doing this. We are told this is a common practice when officers, or former officers, begin whistle-blowing their department. This seems, if it is a common occurance, to be a form of fear tactic, in our opinion.

Arkansas company owner bullies mentally challenged employee (autistic man shares his story with us)

UPDATE:

In the short time since this article has been released, the company, to which we wrote about, has become aware. According to the individual, who initially reached out for help, they are demanding that he remove all the “slander.” We spoke to a well known advocate. At the time that most of the events unfolded, he had apparantly reached out to her for help. During this time, she confirmed that the owner, who’s name is now known, called the former employee a “stupid fat ass.”

Though we did reach out, via Google review, we have yet to get a response from the company owner. Given his rather questionable statement to us (photo below article,) we have more than enough evidence to believe that he is, in fact, a bully. With that, this article will NOT come down.

Editor’s notation: regardless of the implied threat (photograph below,) the business owner has no legal grounds to authorize any videos or photographs posted to this site. If you don’t like the fame, don’t target disabled people, mate.

Workplace bullying is not new. In fact, it’s a rather large problem. As with any form of trash, we happily attack this problem. About an hour ago, our team obtained a video. While the video was clearly a mobile device in a pocket, the audio was what caught our attention. The video cannot be posted at this time as the individual has expressed a desire to take the situation to court.

The situation apparantly began early in the morning, when the mentally challenged (who requested to remain anonymous) was awaken to a knock. He was told that he would be relocated to another vehicle. He explained to us that he was upset as it was the fourth time within three weeks that he was forced to move. However, what ensued can only be described as horrid. The audio, according to the former employee, is the owner of Karr Transportation (KTTI.) Shortly after the audio begins, the owner is heard saying, “I have delt with stupid motherfuckers like you in the past…” The audio becomes fuzzy after this point.

Within the audio multiple insults are thrown at the employee. “Stupid fat mother fucker,” “stupid fat fuck,” and the list continues. Now, what makes this situation particulary horrible is the fact the employee suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism, the owner of the company was apparantly made aware of this during the assault. “I don’t give a fuck what you are,” was allegedly his response.

Allegedly, the employee attempted to go into the workplace, as the company left him stranded 300+ miles from home. At this point, the owner began a second round of assaults. However, according to the former employee, there was a moment to which the owner walked up to him in a threatning manner. The employee, fearing for his safety, stood up to the would-be bully. At this point, the verbal assault continued, for the second time.

Not only is this bullying, this falls into so many legal grounds. We looked up the company, left a review in attempt to make contact with the owner. The response he gave simply placed blame on the former employee. In retrospect, insulting employees with disabilities is acceptable work ethic. We looked at his various replies to other reviews and found a theme of sarcasm and lack of empathy.

Bullying of a handicapped person is not just unethical, it’s an outrage. Handicapped people, for some, are seen as weak and vulnerable; clearly that is the case with his former employer. However, this handicapped person knew of our platform, took the chance to contact us, and now we have relayed his story. If you are being bullied, we can be your voice as well.

The response from the owner is rather interesting. An implied threat, perhaps?
