BILL OF RIGHTS ENFORCEMENT COORDINATING COUNCIL

|Who We Are
In response to President Bush's call for citizen participation in the war on terror and his creation of Freedom Corps/Citizen Corps, citizens of Normandy Township are now served by the Normandy Township Bill of Rights Enforcement Coordinating Council.
The Mission of NTBoRECC is to support the war on terror by monitoring, reporting on and promoting intervention against a particularly pernicious form of terrorism: violation of citizens' constitutional rights by government officials and employees. We'll also be working to provide citizens with the tools of self-defense against anti-Bill of Rights terrorists.
In cooperation with such elements of law enforcement and the unorganized militia as can be aroused to respond to the threat, we hope to completely cleanse Normandy Township of the plague of government terrorism.
Enabling Legal Authorities
Our mission extends to enforcement of the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Per Article Six of that Constitution, the Bill of Rights is part of the "supreme law of the land."
The United States Code prescribes harsh penalties for violation of individual rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights in Title 18, Sections 241 (Conspiracy against Rights) and 242 (Deprivation of rights under color of law).
The NTBoRECC's first focus will be to leverage already existing Bill of Rights enforcement capabilities by ensuring that Bill of Rights violations are immediately reported to the relevant authorities for investigation and prosecution.
NTBoRECC's mechanism for accomplishing this mission will be the "Report a Violation" email link on this page and the "Report a Violation" phone number. NTBoRECC staff will gather complaints and information through these mechanisms and forward them to the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice as well as to such state and local authorities as applicable.
In the near future, NTBoRECC intends to develop a Situational Time-sensitive Immediate Response (STIR) capability. Utilizing police scanner monitoring, and paging and messaging, systems, NTBoRECC volunteers will attempt to arrive at the scenes of ongoing Bill of Rights violations as quickly as possible, with audio and video recording equipment and cameras, to document the incidents for prosecution purposes. We believe that any Bill of Rights violation should trigger a STIR.
Long-term plans include cooperation with neighborhood watch groups to mount armed citizen/militia patrols in areas especially hard-hit by anti-Bill of Rights terrorism.
Of course, the best defense is an informed citizenry prepared to resist violations of their rights from the beginning.
NTBORECC will be providing easy access to "off the shelf" tools -- for example the ACLU's "bust card" -- to facilitate citizens' abilities to act in their own defense. We'll also be compiling material on known or suspected anti-Bill of Rights terrorists operating in the Normandy Township area and making that material available so that citizens, forewarned, can avoid -- or at least survive -- encounters with these criminals.
