WeAreChangeLA’s lead organizer Bruno Bruhwiler is being targeted as a terrorist threat. It all began when Bruno was sitting in the audience at a civil hearing for another WACLA member. The Judge literally did not like Bruno’s involuntary facial expressions, and ordered him out of the courtroom.

He was detained in the hall after asking to see the officers’ ID cards before he left the building. They are required according to their own manual to provide ID upon request, but apparently don’t like to be asked for it. When the supervising officer ordered Bruno to turn around and put his hands behind his back, Bruno instantly turned around and put his hands behind his back with absolutely no resistance.

At first he was supposedly being detained for trespassing (which is a misdemeanor) but of course, you can’t trespass on public property so then they dropped trespassing and told him he was being detained for a public disturbance. About an hour later, when the supervisor actually placed Bruno under arrest, the original charge was changed to misdemeanor contempt of court. None of the witnesses present heard the judge mention anything about contempt when asking him to leave.

    Curious how there was no link to official court documents.

    We're supposed to take someone's word that they're being persecuted unfairly, huh? And send them money?

    Suckers…

    RE: Cerebal Caustic etc.

    I imagine you think they went to all of the trouble to concoct a false story of arrest, build a web-site and reach out to all of those who support a new investigation into 9/11 just to make a little bit of money? Effectively risking all of the great work they have done for the first responders who are dying now because of our governement's lies about the air quality at ground zero.

    And you wish to make a snide weak ass remark against people like this rather than anyone in the establishment who is actually fleecing you and the rest of the world.

    I just want to be sure.
    If you would like a copy of the report. You are most welcome to contact
    wearechange LA and request it.
    Insinuating fraud is slanderous and not appreciated.

    Also if you care to know anything about the truth movement you may want to
    start watching some of the films available which describe in detail the plight of
    the first responders who again are dying because of lies of our government and
    ask yourself if your snide comment is the most humane thing you can do with your time on this planet.

    Peace

    This is a good place to start understanding what is happening.

      Hey I couldn't find a contact link anywhere on wacla.org. I would like to get a copy of the report and also find out the jurisdiction and precinct that arrested Bruno. I have posted videos and links and comments about this terrible arrest everywhere I go on the web but I would like to have a copy of the report and write directly to the officers involved. Or at least the precinct. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is there any video of the incident within the court? Or can you provide video of witnesses recounting what happened? I would be interested to see how it actually played out.

    If the charge was indeed flip-flopped as described, that's problematic, and a tactic often used when law enforcement is less enforcing the spirit of the law, than trying to use the letter of the law to DEFEAT the spirit of the law.

    If the individual complied to officer's requests as stated, then there was no resistance, and mere facial reactions (sans verbal comments that might influence the jury) are not sufficient to make the case for contempt of court. Similarly, the trespassing charge is ridiculous for the reasons stated above. A public venue is a public venue.

    It sounds like officials simply overreacting, and I'm more inclined to back an individual over the state on ANY day, but I'd need more than just video from a separate public protest to come to the conclusion that something sketchy happened.

      Hi 5by5.
      I don't know if they have the actual video of the false arrest as they were in a courthouse and that may have been denied to them. You can find out the latest info here

      Thank you for your concern.

      Best wishes!

    Charged with being a “terrorist threat'' or charged with making “terroristic threats''? There's a BIG difference. (The question is rhetorical… I already know the answer.) From the website

    http://definitions.uslegal.com/t/terroristic-th

    “A terroristic threat is a crime generally involving a threat to commit violence communicated with the intent to terrorize another, to cause evacuation of a building, or to cause serious public inconvenience, in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience. It may mean an offense against property or involving danger to another person that may include but is not limited to recklessly endangering another person, harassment, stalking, ethnic intimidation, and criminal mischief.''

    • ET

      And notice that it's `terroristic' not `terrorist'. Also a BIG difference.

    The cause may be noble…but anyone who even remotely buys into the claim of “involuntary facial movements” should see my friend P.T. Barnum…he has some bridges for sale.

    When you're dealing with an amoral monolithic government that routinely treats protesters as enemies of the state…it might just possibly be a good idea to NOT behave like a jackass in front of a judge. Judges can be thoroughgoing pricks…and they HATE anyone even showing slight disrespect toward them. In other words, if a man point a gun at you, don't wrap your mouth around the barrel and give him the finger…the situation isn't going to be improved by acts of stupidity. You might feel that its courage at the time…but the courage to last and fight on is more important than getting a good cheap shot.

    • dkluge

      One problem. There is such a thing as involuntary facial movements. I don't know if has this problem but A friend of mine has muscle spasms all the time that make it look like he is disgusted or angry.

      • http://voxmagi-necessarywords.blogspot.com/ VoxMagi

        True…neurological problems exist…

        …but fortunately we have video footage above that suggest there is nothing wrong with Bruno except when he wants to be a snarky brat in the middle of a courtroom. Neurological conditions rarely vanish on video and then spontaneously erupt only during moments of disgusted outrage in court.

        Not that I blame for trying to get off the hook…but when the media and others leap on board and play make believe with him it cheapens credibility for everyone involved and reduces a good cause into a fringe of idiots. That's something I can't support.

          “wants to be a snarky brat in the middle of a courtroom.” Umm were you there Voxmagi?
          This is slander.

          “Not that I blame for trying to get off the hook…but when the media and others leap on board and play make believe with him it cheapens credibility for everyone involved and reduces a good cause into a fringe of idiots. That's something I can't support.”

          Trying to get off the hook? Innocent until proven guilty?? Reduces a good cause into a fringe of idiots? Wow you are really supportive of the movement I must say…

            I'm with you on the 9/11 Truth deal…

            …but I haven't drunk so much Kool Aid that I can watch a video featuring a man with no neurological condition or facial tics and then turn around and believe that he experienced “involuntary facial expressions” in court. Slander is a term for a baseless claim intended to defame an individual. He's defamed himself and the evidence isn't looking good for his claim…calling a liar a liar doesn't meet the litmus test for slander.

            I didn't write his defense…he did. In a word, he's already admitted making facial expressions, so clearly he doesn't believe he can claim that nothing happened at all.

            Which means he's not just lying…he's lying badly and embarrassing everyone who wants a dignified movement for truth that garners people's respect. Supporting this nimrod is as ignorant as the people who waved their flag for Bush while he lied his ass off and buried the truth.

            Believe in accountability? Well try some at home first and if you like it, them we can see about exporting it to the rest of the country…otherwise…you embody what you claim to oppose and make a mockery out of the cause. If that is the case, then stay home and get out of the movement…because by supporting hacks and frauds who embarrass the rest of us you damage even the slightest hope of getting real justice. Congrats

      “When you're dealing with an amoral monolithic government that routinely treats protesters as enemies of the state…it might just possibly be a good idea to NOT behave like a jackass in front of a judge.”

      Lacking video evidence, none of us know what went down exactly in the courtroom. I agree with you, that you cannot give the slave owners any reason to slam you down (They will surely take it) but the larger picture here are the trumped up charges based on his status as a peaceful 9/11 truth organizer.

      But this doesn't mean that Bruno even made the “involuntary facial tics” and even if you were to show visible disgust, that is no crime. That is a human reaction. I was not there either so I cannot say what type of “involuntary tics” may or may not have occurred. The behavior of police towards peaceful protestors has grown increasingly more hostile and giving the ability for 9/11 truth to complete unveil the real corruption of our Government, we can expect the state to react in such a manner unfortunately.

      Please help spread the message. Bruno needs to hire adequate counsel for these outrageous charges.
      Please help our Brother on the front lines.
