Buffalo Officials Duped By Professional Antifa Provocateur – Arrest and Charge Two Police Officers – Righteous Police Team Stand Together and Walk Out…

Martin Gugino is a 75-year-old professional agitator and Antifa provocateur who brags on his blog about the number of times he can get arrested and escape prosecution. According to Buffalo Mayor Byron BrownThere has been vandalism, there have been fires set, there have been stores broken into & looted. According to what was reported to me, that individual was a key major instigator of people engaging in those activities.”

Mr. Gugino’s Twitter Account is also filled with anti-cop sentiment [SEE HERE].  Last Thursday Gugino traveled from his New York home in Amherst, to Buffalo where he was seen on camera agitating a protest crowd. One of the protesters earlier remarked that Mr. Gugino was “acting like an asshole”, and “trying to get punched in the face.”

During his effort Gugino was attempting to capture the radio communications signature of Buffalo police officers. CTH noted what he was attempting on Thursday night as soon as the now viral video was being used by media to sell a police brutality narrative. [Thread Here] Today, a more clear video has emerged that shows exactly what he was attempting.

In this slow motion video, you will see Gugino using a phone as a capture scanner.  You might have heard the term “skimming”; it’s essentially the same.  Watch him use his right hand to first scan the mic of officer one (top left of chest).  Then Gugino moves his hand to the communications belt of the second officer. WATCH CLOSELY:

.

The capture of communications signals [explained in detail here] is a method of police tracking used by Antifa to monitor the location of police. In some cases the more high tech capture software can even decipher communication encryption allowing the professional agitators to block (black-out), jam, or interfere with police communication. In addition, many police body-cams are bluetooth enabled which allows syncing.

Unfortunately in the modern era the professional agitators have become very sophisticated and use technology to help create chaos.  Their activity is highly coordinated, and as James O’Keefe has revealed in his undercover operations these professionals even stage events to manipulate public opinion.

When he was pushed away by the officers Gugino fell and presumably hit his head. As a consequence of the shove, the two officers were suspended and the Buffalo authorities have arrested and charged the two police officers.  In a show of support the entire Buffalo police unit that makes up the Emergency Response Team resigned their position.

On Friday Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown admitted Gugino was a professional ‘agitator’ who tried to work up the crowd and had been asked to leave the area ‘numerous’ times.

However, despite the known ideology and intent of Mr. Gugino; and despite a more careful look at the video highlighting exactly what Gugino was attempting; the Buffalo authorities are frozen by political correctness and have now arrested and charged the two officers.

(Via Daily Mail) – Two Buffalo cops have been arrested and charged with second degree assault after they shoved a 75-year-old peace activist to the ground Thursday causing him to crack his head open on the sidewalk, as hundreds of colleagues gathered outside the city court in solidarity to cheer their release without bail.

Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe were each charged with one count of assault in the second degree in a court hearing Saturday morning over the shocking incident that left peaceful protester Martin Gugino in a ‘serious condition’ in hospital.

The cops were arraigned in a virtual court hearing where they both pleaded not guilty to the charges and the two cops hid from the view of the camera.

They each face up to seven years in prison if convicted of the class D felony. They were released without bail and will appear back in court on July 20.(read more)

It would appear Mr. Martin Gugino succeeded in his endeavor:

UPDATE 6/9/20 9:00pm ET: OAN News has additional details.

And a picture of Mr. Martin Gugino sitting up chatting on his cell phone before being loaded into the ambulance:

    I have looked at lots of photos of this “shove” and the fall. There are several more angles of this now. The guy he is talking to is the cameraman that shot it and called for the ambulance, the cop looks at him and say EMT is here.

    As someone very well versed in camera operation at all level including feature films. I thought this at first. The camera guy was in place after their meeting. He did something which means he is quite poor at his craft or it was on purpose. After the shove he did not follow the attacker with a helmet in his hand and waving his cell phone (trying to sniff). This allowed the attacker to go out of frame preventing the viewing of the fall and head hit.

    Now after seeing an angle from across the street and can view it in total. He seems to prepare for the fall and his on his butt using his hands. He completes the fall in stages it seems. With his head hitting AFTER his back on the ground.

    Note the cross legged comfortable laying position. His cellphone face screen for viewing is postioned away from the natural viewing postion. Hence this Sites host position of it being used as a sniffer is also enforced imo.

    There is another view from a camera where his head is near the camera. I believe this is the guy in the black shirt that the cops rush and take into custody who was probably in place to capture it also.

    The blood pack. That does logical. His head as he is laying down shows his back muscles are working to ANGLE his neck to an upright position., look at the photos, there is a large gap under his neck and he strains to keep it up straight. The tube connected to his mask seems to be there and leads down to the ear from his mouth. I would think from my film work on stunts he had a blood pack in his mouth. Bit it and forced the blood down the tube.

    THe blood, the blood looks like MOVIE blood so to speak. Real blood is not bright read etc. They use a special fake mixture to make it look like blood for photography. Thicker and brighter. Drop blood on a sidewalk from a cut finger, does it do and look like the blood from his ear, hardly I think. THe packs of blood can triggered from impact or biting, gunshot blood packs have a charge that is fired to make it explode outward. Very careful safety features have to be used on the actors for this.

    The shot with the whole episode which caught the whole thing would also appear perhaps to be from someone stationed to catch it. They framed very well and followed all the action. The NPR cameraman who went to position after their chat did not do this. Crappy operator or it was on purpose, Knowing what I know about most news shooters, crappy perhaps.

    Today is D Day yet any news on that, any remembrance. Like Bongino said, The Secret Service t the WHite House owns the night. Their equipment will provide them superior advantage.

    D Day, coincidence or not. Storming the beaches day. Storming the White House, I hope they are not that foolish for their sake.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Treepers, please accept my apology for posting on 6/5/2020 at the article “Healing Not Hatred” where I made the following comment: “Is this acceptable? Will this bring healing? Was that officer “Simply executing orders” or simply executing?” Before posting, I watched and re-watched the original video multiple times. All I could see was that the man had a phone in his hand and I did not think he was trying to do that officer any harm. I should have waited until more information came out before commenting.

    After reading Sundance’s above article explaining how the man was scanning/skimming the officers’ mics:

Watch him use his right hand to first scan the mic of officer one (top left of chest). Then Gugino moves his hand to the communications belt of the second officer.”

    I realize I was totally wrong in my perception and acknowledge this error.

      See my comment below. Everyone clearly is entitled to an opinion and viewpoint. Correct and incorrect are often difficult and sometimes impossible labels to apply–not that they need to be applied, but I make that caveat.

      The skimming, whether it occurred or not, is secondary or may not even be relevant. The video is, on first viewing, grabbing, because an apparently elderly man got shoved, lost his footing, and ended up in trauma. Doesn’t look good for the cops. Cuomo committed a serious mistake by making his raw but impactful comment concluding guilt but allowing a jury the opportunity to agree with him. Command influence. Jury spoiling. But, off the track here.

      The only relevant issue is this: was the officer acting IN policy? A methodical takedown of the sequence of events will, I am convinced, result in an acquittal–or at least some semblance of what Flynn is going through, an innocent person getting thrashed by a judicial system intent upon assigning guilt where none can be found organically.

      – do they transmit to that belt-pack for backup?
      – do they transmit to the cloud?
      – if so, do they accomplish it with radio frequencies or cell-phone frequencies and protocols?

      – what’s on the belt communications pack?
      – radio, I think, because they’ll speak into the shoulder mic to speak to HQ and maybe other officers

      These frequencies are listed in the FCC database, they are not a “state secret”. Getting those numb nuts on social media to actually USE that info is another thing, particularly IF the department is using a so-called “trunked” radio system. IF they have a P25 (Project 25) compliant system (the over-the-air protocol) then they may also be running digital voice encryption.

      I’m guessing this was a staged injury. With a skull fracture, specifically a basilar skull fracture, cerebrospinal fluid can leak from the ear in about 20% of cases. This fluid will be tinged pink, not bright red, not immediate, and certainly not in the quantity as seen in the photos taken right after the incident.

      Furthermore, it takes quite a forceful trauma to cause this type of skull fracture. I doubt this fall caused one.

    Candace Owens: George Floyd is Neither a Martyr or a Hero

    George Floyd’s Criminal Past

    George Floyd moved to Minneapolis in 2014 after being released from prison in Houston, Texas following an arrest for aggravated robbery.

    On May 25, 2020, Floyd was arrested for passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a grocery store in Minneapolis. He was under the influence of fentanyl and methamphetamine at the time of arrest.

    Floyd has more than a decade-old criminal history at the time of the arrest and went to jail at least 5 times.

    George Floyd was the ringleader of a violent home invasion. He plead guilty to entering a pregnant woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach and searching the home for drugs and money, according to court records.

    Floyd was sentenced to 10 months in state jail for possession of cocaine in a December 2005 arrest.

    He had previously been sentenced to eight months for the same offense, stemming from an October 2002 arrest.

    Floyd was arrested in 2002 for criminal trespassing and served 30 days in jail.

    He had another stint for a theft in August 1998.

    re: “The capture of communications signals [explained in detail here] is a method of police tracking used by Antifa to monitor the location of police. In some cases the more high tech capture software can even decipher communication encryption allowing the professional agitators to block (black-out), jam, or interfere with police communication.”

    This is gibberish. Long-time techie (RF engineer, including cellular and 2-way radio) here and I have to call BS on this. No doubt this idiot was up to something, or “thought” he could scan for something, and the cops were right to thwart this attempt, but the technical reasons above are trash.

      usJim, Do you think it is possible for someone to have only your cell phone number, a linux computer system, some software, an internet connection that I can listen in on your calls as often and long as I want.

      you’re claiming I can’t buy a cell phone scanner to find phone numbers. Things like sting ray don’t exist.
      Does your cell phone not contact the tower to check in with all its ID on a regular basis.

        It is bullshit because it is referencing some sort of fusion of techniques for Analog Cell Phones from the 90s and modern RFID card techniques, neither of which is going to do anything for the P25 radios that cops use.

        For P25 radios, if encryption was something to overcome we’d have to lift the radio entirely or actually break the encryption itself, which would require actual theft or could be done more than a mile away respectively.

        Happily for scanner enthusiasts, P25 very rarely gets used with actual encryption so much as frequency hopping and just assigned frequencies controlled from a set control channel, a trunked system. If you know where the control channel is you can usually tap into whatever you want, cops might use encryption but federal studies have shown they usually have no idea if they are using it at any given point so with skill you can usually just tap into incompetence like undercover ops and SWAT operations with some effort. All of which can be done remotely, rather than with some weirdness like running a cell phone over a radio.

    A Uniden scanner such as the BCD996XT (or the P2 updated version) using the built-in “close call” feature will capture the frequency of a walkie-talkie 50 and more feet away; NO need to come close to an officer’s belt (or radio) to do this.

      I disagree

      – that entire cadre of police were advancing

      – there’s a purpose in that, they’re not just out for a stroll

      – Gugino strode right up on them and hindered / impeded the one policeman’s advance

      – Gugino started doing some kind of sketchy stuff waving a device around and over 2 of the police

      – 2nd line policeman may have judged that to be sinister, steps forward to shove the guy back

      – both front-line police shove Gugino before 2nd-line policeman gets there

      – policeman on right steps in and shoves with one hand

      – hindered policeman on left pushed off with his nightstick held horizontally with both hands … a textbook “fend-off” move

      LastDemocrat – you stride right up on a cadre of advancing police at a crowd-control even and impede their progress and start waving a device over them – what do you anticipate happening to you?

        When the jury is convened, this observation will need to be made:
        1. Each officer closest to the guy reacted in the same fashion. Why does that matter? Because the accusation here will be 2nd degree, meaning unintentional but reckless. If all cops within his zone reacted identically, then among trained professionals, a sampling of 3 out of 3 is unanimous action: the definition of NOT reckless but instead TRAINING.
        2. The officer behind the front pair lunges forward. We do not have audio, so we ask the three officers, what did the 3rd officer SAY? He said, “..xxxxxx.”. If what he said was “move him out of here!”, then the forward pair are following a direct, emphatic order in line with their training and current situation, and the force used was within policy and NOT excessive. Decision to favor the police.

              Why? Because the jury is going to be pushed to find unreasonable force. Unreasonable means “no reasonable prosecutor would charge Hillary with a crime here.” So, when the two nearest prosecutors standing within earshot say, simultaneously, “I will”, then the unreasonableness goes out the window. Ditto here. No two trained cops acting identically in a split second can be charged with acting unreasonably when both of their first instincts and acts are simultaneous. AND, we don’t even have further mitigating evidence in the form of what anyone was saying.

      When I saw it the first time, I thought it was unnecessary…after I saw the result.

      Coming back to it, I see that the officers are within their duties to have acted the way they did.

      You can see my comments below.

      Addressing my first sentence above: if the guy stumbled back three feet to no effect, would you have seen the video?

      Answer truthfully.

      If your answer, like mine, is no, then why are we looking at a video? Because the guy lost his footing. Well, not really that, either. We are not watching a guy take a bump on the rump. No, we got to see him crack his noggin. That’s why this has resulted in two officers charged and a whole new virus coursing the land.

      The guy bled from his ear after cracking his skull, after falling backwards, after losing his footing, after being pushed by a riot officer to get him out of his space. Starting from first principles, does the officer have the right (or duty, assigned by the State) to clear the field using appropriate levels of force? Yes. Did he use lethal force, the kind that will kill or cause grave bodily injury? No, he bumped him with a double-gripped baton in according with his training. Question to the jury: did the officer use lethal force? Answer, no. Question to the jury: is the technique used also found in the training manual? Answer: yes. Question to the jury: were the officers ordered to clear the area before them of unwilling persons? Answer: yes.

      Case closed.

    Video from the other side of the street showed a clean smack to the pavement. If he had any staging equipment, medics would have found and reported it. Judging from the full video, he whacked his head, so it would appear his injury is real. In any event, there is the mitigating factor: he was in a place of unrest and he was confronting riot police, so he ought to be held accountable for his outcome. The officers did not use deadly force, so there should be no prosecution or conviction. He may have received injuries, but those were a direct outcome of his failure to obey a lawful order, followed by non-lethal, policy sanctioned contact by the officers. They cannot be held accountable for a man of sound mind–but frail body–making a stupid decision and getting injured.

    It looks unfair and perhaps excessive in the raw. The officer who moved him back saw the result and his instinct was to drop down to help the man. He was moved along by another, probably his superior. This is why it is important to obey law enforcement even if in disagreement, because it invites engagement, which can go three ways, two of them bad. Not good odds, but he went with them anyway.

    My husband is a retired FF/EMT as well as a long time photographer. He also suspects that it could have been staged. He said that he was puzzled by how quickly blood poured out of the old guy’s ear and would like to see the actual video of impact. He also said that the fact that he is now in stable condition is very surprising considering the supposed seriousness of the injury. Does anyone have a link to the fall from the opposite angle, showing him actually going down? I have tried to search but just get the video that has been shown everywhere else (why was a photographer there filming JUST as the altercation happened – inquiring minds would like to know?).

    “Attorney General Bill Barr will go after violent demonstrators with a 1968 law meant to quell rioting.

    “We must have law and order on our streets and in our communities,” Barr said Saturday at DOJ headquarters in Washington, DC.

    “It is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting,” he said. “We will enforce these laws.”

    Barr accused “anarchistic and far-left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics” for the unrest that has spread to cities throughout the nation since Monday, in the wake of the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police.

    “Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda,” he said.

    The federal Anti-Riot Act, part of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, carries penalties of up to five years in prison.”
