Introducing Shield 5(TM)

Today I want to introduce my new project titled "Shield 5(TM)".

It is a concept that I hope will not only reduce negative conflicts that occur between Police officers and civilians. I also hope that it will bring awareness to citizens who are not aware of their 5th amendment right mentioned in the constitution.

What is Shield 5™ protection?

Before I go into much detail I will attempt to explain why we need "Shield 5(TM)"

We live in a society today where most of its citizens are not aware of their rights given to them by their creator and listed in the United States Constitution.

We also have in this society where many law enforcement officers do not know their limits given to them in the Constitution or the rights of the citizen he/she is encounters while on duty.

It seems like we are seeing more and more negative confrontations between citizens and law enforcement officers on a daily basis. Some of these end in violence and sometimes even result in the loss of life.

Tragically all of these can be prevented with a little education on the 5th amendment of the constitution as well as education on the limits given to Law enforcement officials in the same document.

If an officer approaches you on a traffic stop or any other routine stop, the 5th amendment gives you the freedom to refuse to answer any questions that can (and will) incriminate you in any way. In fact police officers know this well which is why you hear them read a suspect his/her rights while putting them under arrest.

Unfortunately, usually by the time you are being placed into custody, you have already waived your 5th amendment right by even speaking to the officer.

Please don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against police officers or any other type of law enforcement officers. I hold them all in utmost respect. However, I do know my rights as a U.S. citizen and one of those rights is “The right to remain silent” or the right to not become a witness against myself with through my words or actions.

Example Miranda warning.

I also know I have the right to have an attorney present during questioning.
Shield 5™ is a project that is designed to help reduce these negative police confrontations by displaying a sticker within plain view of the approaching officer that the citizen(s) within the vehicle are aware of these rights and will not answer questions without an attorney present.

I want to be completely clear that I am not saying you need to be rude and not acknowledge the officer and disrespecting the officer by ignoring them completely and not uttering a word. Yes, we do have that right. Every citizen has the right to be rude to someone else but it would be much better to respond to the officer and respectfully decline to answer their questions without your attorney. The more politely you decline their questions, the better the stop will go for everyone involved.

Some states don’t require you to identify yourself when approached by an officer. However, during a traffic stop you are required to produce a copy of your driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance. Some people think they are not required but most if not all states require a valid driver’s license to operate a motor vehicle.

Please don’t try to argue with an officer that is only trying to do his job. Ask any lawyer. If by chance I am wrong, it is still best practice to remain safe than to end up sorry.

When an officer approaches a vehicle protected by “Shield 5™”, he/she becomes immediately aware that the citizen(s) within the vehicle are aware of their 5th amendment rights declared in the constitution.

We are currently working on a curtain that can be drawn across your window not only displaying a polite message to the police officer but it will also display your license, registration and insurance through the closed window.

The officer has everything he/she needs to do their job and you have not said a word to them. Nor are you required to. Any disputes should be taken up with a judge in court with an attorney present. There is no need to try to argue guilt or innocence to a police officer who is only trying to do his or her job.

Shield 5™ is intended to decrease these negative confrontations between police officers and the citizens they are supposed to serve and protect by reminding the citizen and officer of the rights given to us within the constitution.

Contact me if you would like to pre-order your printed stickers today and get one for each window of your car or if you have any questions about any other products we are currently developing.

"A doe, a deer, a female deer"...

Little house on the prairie 200 years later

On our way back home from Garden Valley, Shaun and I drove through Placerville and we were able to explore some old cabins.

One I believe was one of Packer John's old cabins and it was almost completely gone and the other was an old cabin that looked like it could have been an old family cabin in the 1800's. It was still in rather good condition considering the age.

You have the right to remain silent...

Today I want to talk about a topic that always seems to come up in the news on a lot lately.

It seems that every week we are hearing of confrontations between citizens and police officers, usually ending up in violence and/or a fatal police shooting.

I will not make any distinctions of race or ethnicity because we are all governed and protected under the same law.
The law I am referring to is found in the constitution and is better known as the Fifth Amendment. The fifth amendment states;
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
I will focus mainly on the portion that states "nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself".

Most people do not seem to have a concept of the true meaning of the 5th amendment and how it can protect us in ANY confrontation with a police officer.

Many people are aware of Miranda that is normally provided by an arresting officer to a person that is about to be taken into custody. It usually consists of the arresting officer reminding the suspect of their right to avoid self incrimination by remaining silent.

What most people don't realize is that they tend to unknowingly waive their 5th amendment right prior to being taken into custody by the arresting officer because they self incriminated themselves by saying something that will be used against them in court.

Generally by the time Miranda is given to a suspect, they have usually already incriminated themselves in one way or another.

Let's clear something up right now. Any lawyer or law professor worth his/her salt will agree when I say "Nothing you say(or do) can be used to help you in court." In fact, everything you say or do can only be used against you. That is the truth.

I am here to tell you that you have the right to remain silent even as you are originally approached by an officer. I am not saying that you should not be polite and refuse to speak to the officer entirely. You can politely decline any line of questioning and refer any questions to your attorney. You have the right to an attorney even if you aren't guilty of anything or if you are not under arrest.

What you have is the right to not self incriminate yourself by staying silent. If you are pulled over during a traffic stop, a safe way to practice your 5th amendment right would be to ask the officer to issue the citation so you can be on your way. You don't need to admit to anything or deny anything(which will be used against you in court). 

It is better to drive away with a summons to appear in court in your hands than it is to take a ride in the back seat of a cruiser in cuffs. No good will come from arguing with the officer who is only trying to do his/her job. Any disputes should be handled through your attorney in front of a judge.

Another way to avoid self incrimination is to avoid digging around your car to find your license, registration and proof of insurance. It is best to have all of your papers in a place that is easily accessible from the driver's seat of the vehicle without having to reveal anything in your car that you may or may not even be aware of.

You may not be aware he even has the drugs on him. Fast forward to a traffic stop. It is too late to search for anything illegal in your car after you see flashing lights in the rear view mirror.


Imagine a moment that an officer comes up to your window requesting those documents after pulling you over for a broken tail light. Unfortunately for you, your registration had somehow made its way under the passenger seat next to you.

As the officer waits patiently for you to locate your registration and insurance, you reach your hand under the passenger seat and wrap your fingers around a handful of papers that you hope will include your registration. As you pull the wad from beneath the seat, you locate your registration but also a small Ziploc bag containing your good friend's marijuana stash comes into plain view of the officer.


Suddenly what began as a routine traffic stop due to a broken tail light on your car quickly spirals into a "It's not mine." as you feel the cold hard steel of handcuffs wrapping tightly around your wrist.
You waived your 5th amendment right the moment you showed the officer you were in possession of a controlled substance. The 5th amendment is not just about your right to remain silent. It is about your right against self incrimination by any means.

The fifth amendment not only protects us, it also limits what law enforcement officers can do.

Here is a link to a video that not only shows a citizen standing up for his right to remain silent during an encounter that lasted less than 25 seconds.

While the majority of U.S. citizens are not aware of this right, many police officers are not aware of it as well and will actually become upset if you don't talk with them. In the event an officer becomes angry at you for practicing your 5th amendment right politely decline to answer their questions and ask to speak to his/her superior. There is no law against you refusing to answer. In fact the constitution protects you.

If you have any doubt that what I am saying to you is true, please feel free to watch the following video where a Harvard professor teaches his law students why they should never talk to police.

This is why I have begun the "Shield 5" project. It is designed to provide a friendly reminder to law enforcement officers of your right to avoid self incrimination through your words or actions.

 I am still working on some of the business details but come back soon to get your personalized "Shield 5" notice to Law Enforcement sign for your car.

Until then feel free to download and print the following sign to place on your car to help show police officers that you are an informed citizen well aware of your 5th amendment right.

Do painkillers cause cancer?

Today, I want to talk about a topic that has been on my mind for a while. Keep in mind, I am not a doctor or a scientist so please take what I say about this topic with a grain of salt and do not make any medical decisions based on what you read here. I am definitely not an expert on the subject. I am only sharing my thoughts about the subject. Consult with a doctor if you have any questions about pain killers and their affects on your body.

To begin with lets cover some statistics. It is a well known fact that America has one of the largest cancer rates in the world. It also happens to be one of the most medicated societies on earth and when I say medicated, I mean that a significant amount of Americans are on some form of medication or another. The leading choice of medications is painkillers.

According to the "National Institute for Drug Abuse" nearly 52 million people are on one form of medication or another and over 50% of those are on pain medicine. That is over a whopping 26 million people on pain medicine.

Before we dive into why I think painkillers contribute to cancer, I want to explain briefly how your body is designed to deal with pain. You have probably heard in the past that pain is your body telling you something is wrong. While this is true, it is only partially true. The truth is that pain is your bodies way of telling your brain there is something wrong so that it can send blood to the affected area to induce healing.

Remember, I am no doctor or scientific expert on this subject but these are things I remember being taught in school. If you are wounded in some way either visibly or internally, the pain signals are interpreted by the brain and the brain then causes the heart to beat faster to increase blood flow to the affected area and begin the healing process. This is the body's natural way to heal itself.

While the pain is uncomfortable, it is necessary because it makes the brain aware of an issue so it can take the necessary action to fix the problem.

Introducing big pharma and painkillers.

One thing you should know before reading on is that painkillers do not promote healing. In fact they do just the opposite.

Let me explain by telling you how painkillers work.

According to the "Science Museum" here;
"When part of your body is injured, special nerve endings send pain messages back to your brain. Painkilling drugs interfere with these messages, either at the site of the injury, in the spinal cord or in the brain itself."
That says it all right there. Painkillers interfere with these pain messages that should be sent to your brain. Without these messages the brain is unaware of the problem so it cannot take the necessary steps to produce healing to the injured area.

Do I need to say more? Think about it. We are in pain so we decide we will turn off all communication to our integrated physician.

Imagine an army platoon surrounded by the enemy. The enemy is closing in on all sides and they need help. The radioman is standing by with a radio but instead of radioing for help, the platoon leader decides they will hide under cover and hope the enemy leaves. This would be suicide. Any leader in his/her right mind would pick up the radio and call for reinforcements or an air strike to destroy the enemy.

In essence that is precisely what we are doing when we take painkillers. We are preventing the transmission of signals that are necessary to send our brain to the rescue. Instead we block the communication with painkillers and the brain is essentially unaware of an issue and wounds don't heal properly.

Without the brain's intervention the wounds don't heal properly. Many forms of cancer are essentially wounds that won't heal. If the brain is made unaware of a wound or injury it is unable to start the necessary healing process causing the wound/injury to become worse and even begin to affect surrounding tissues and organs turning into what we know as a cancerous tumor.

In my opinion painkillers are a significant contributor to cancer and should not be used except in extreme cases and after the brain has had time to perform the the steps necessary to help heal the injured area.

Anyway, that is all I have to say about the subject. Like I said, I am no expert so please consult your physician regarding any questions regarding pain medication and its potential risks to your health. This is just my opinion on the subject

In closing I will ask the question again "Do painkillers cause cancer?". I don't think that they cause all forms of cancer but I certainly think it contributes to some forms of cancer.

Do you agree or disagree?

SUV Fire caught on Go-Pro Dashcam video

Today on my way into work I drove by an SUV that was on fire. The entire front end of what appeared to be a Chevy Suburban was engulfed in flames. I was able to get it all on video for you to see. You will see the fire just after 2 minutes into the video.

Looking on the bright side though, The sunrise was amazing on the drive.

Enjoy the video.
