What happened to Steve?

file photo

No, the picture above is not me, Steven G. Erickson.

I've been getting numerous emails asking whether I am alive, in jail, or what. No, I work in an office, receive a salary based on 45 hours a week and am usually working 7 days a week. I'm working more than 75 hours a week on average. There just isn't time to chat on the phone, for personal emails, or even personal phone calls.

I fear going to Connecticut on a day off and being arrested for just expressing my opinion, driving through, or being in Connecticut visiting friends. [click here for what I'm talking about]

Imagine possibly losing your job, your home, your car, your significant other, your family etc for just driving through or being in an "American State"?

Elderly people have just driven into Connecticut, gotten sick, gone to the hospital, and these elderly citizens will then sometimes be put on lock down at a Connecticut mental hospital unable to see their adult children, a lawyer will then be appointed in "their best interest", and the lawyers and the state of Connecticut will split the person's assets. The adult children, the future heirs, are screwed out of their inheritance. [example, scroll down to comments]

The best example of what is wrong in America, should start with the Richard "Ritt" Goldstein case. He was a prominent Connecticut businessman and Democrat. He was the key speaker at a special judicial hearing on Connecticut Judicial and Police misconduct and the need for civilian oversight of police. He was then so terrorized after making [this video], he fled to Sweden seeking political asylum.

A US Marine, Stephen Murzin, came home to Connecticut. He was stabbed 13 times and arrested by police and faced 6 months in prison for creating a disturbance having been stabbed, waking up alive in the hospital. The felon on probation, David J. Taylor, wasn't even violated on probation for having almost killed 3 people. [that story]

Paul Rosner Mixed Martial Arts and Kick Boxing

Text with video:
Regulating and sanctioning this sport is what Mr. Rosner was talking about March 3, 2009, in front of the Connecticut legislature. He represents US KBA Action Sports. He talks about Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun gambling casinos where events might be held for this spectator sport.

For more of the hearings shot at the Connecticut legislature, do a word search on my name, “Steven G. Erickson” and look for’s date, March 3, 2009. This video is exclusive to Steven G. Erickson

Taser Company Man, Lobbyist, AND Cop

video shot yesterday at the Hartford Capitol in Connecticut in front of the Public Safety and Security legislative committee

Do you think there is a conflict of interest if a Taser International Company man is lobbying legislators for your tax dollars while being paid tax dollars to be a police officer?

Do you find this more than a little sleazy?

Do legislators in Connecticut get a piece of the action?

The population in Connecticut has gone down, but government and spending, hiring of government workers, and the building of government buildings may have risen 30%!

Can you say, "Pigs"?

A woman friend, and former landlord, has a daughter, they now live outside of Connecticut because of Connecticut State Police misconduct, brutality, and the pervasive abuse of citizens in Connecticut. "T.M." was raped and left bleeding and naked in a Wilmington, CT, parking lot. The Tolland, Troop C Connecticut State Police Detective who was too lazy to do an investigation threatened to arrest "T.M." for making a false statement regarding being raped. That is what police in Connecticut do to avoid having to do any work, they threaten and arrest victims of crimes, too often.

T.M. was recounting the rape to two officers, who then both tasered her, arrested her, and then took away her cloths at lock up, so she wouldn't "hurt herself". Her large breasts were left exposed for officers.

Should animals like this wear badges and carry guns?

A need for Civilian Oversight of Police is needed more than ever. I also appeared in front of the Connecticut Public Safety and Security Committee in Hartford Connecticut, yesterday. [video]

Ritt Goldstein testified in front of Connecticut legislators with international experts on Civilian Oversight of Police and was so terrorized after making [this video], that he fled to Sweden seeking political asylum. Should we still be living in a Police State?

Sue J. talks about the Steven G. Erickson saga:

Police in the State of Connecticut can, and will cover up for murders, rapists, organized criminals, drug dealers, other cops, and will even act as look outs during break-ins.

This video was also shot yesterday at the Hartford Capitol. Police cover up for murderers, this is still going on:

A US Marine who returned to Connecticut, witnessed police beating up a man for having lodged a police misconduct complaint because the same two officers had beaten up a teen for wearing bagging pants at the same McDonald's, was arrested when he woke up in the hospital with 13 stab wounds for causing a disturbance having been stabbed.

David J. Taylor, a felon on probation, wasn't even violated on probation for almost killing 3 people.

[This case] should prove to all doubters that the courts and police in Connecticut are corrupt and need to be cleaned up.

Christopher "Chris" Kennedy made a police misconduct complaint after being assaulted by a Connecticut State Police Officer and "Stalker Judge", Jonathan J. "Jackass" Kaplan. Chris was arrested the next day and faced 30 years in prison for accidentally checking the wrong box on a family court financial form.

Chris talks about "Jackass" Judge Jonathan J. Kaplan:

Donald "Donny" Christmas talks about being attacked by a police officer's 16 year old prostitute girlfriend in front of his wife and child, for his evicting the 16 year old prostitute, her prostitute sister, and her prostitute mother.

Only Donny faced a year in prison for being slapped in the back of the head and yelled at, attacked on his own property. Donny speaks:

Legislation for a US Police State?

In Connecticut, legislators are having a public hearing on [this legislation].

What does it say about a police department's ability to "protect and serve" if they don't even have enough confidence in each other, not to be protected to want their addresses unavailable to the public?

Women are raped, citizens are terrorized, crimes are committed, and these victims of crimes can't be comforted knowing that police in a state don't have enough confidence in each other to protect and serve, they have to have their addresses made secret.

When citizens have no recourse, the courts are rigged, and children are wrongly taken away, police commit perjury, manufacture evidence, commit rape and acts of brutality, they should be afraid, and for good reason. Those with nothing, and nothing to lose, can be capable of anything, including, "Pay Back". I don't suggest citizens take the law into their own hands, I suggest you utilize our American System to change what is becoming a Police State, before it is too late.

If you lodge a police misconduct complaint in the state of Connecticut, you complain to a more senior officer at police HQ. Police are threatening, abusive, and can terrorize you out of a state. Free Speech tested, can land you in prison. I know this from personal experience.

Should there be "Secret Police" in the US?

I thought I was going to be arrested the last time I appeared to speak at a public hearing at the Hartford Capitol Legislative Office Building. [more]

Robbin' the Hood

by Rady Ananda Page 1 of 1 page(s)

Remember when you could pay all your bills and still save? Remember when you could go to the club every weekend, and to the ballet, and to the Shaw Festival up in Canada? Or, travel the country on a two-week road trip every couple years, taking your time and seeing everything you’ve heard about and more? Remember when women fawned over you and you realized that popularity had an emotional price?

Remember when politics were interesting and important and that’s all you could talk about? Then, years later, remember when you avoided it? Couldn’t stand to hear stupid opinions from people who hadn’t cracked a book in ten years. Couldn’t stand how people erupted in anger and name-calling. Couldn’t understand foreign policy or economics, though you always got good grades, so couldn’t talk about it anyway.

Remember attending college in your 40s and having to stifle laughter at the absurd myths perpetuated by college professors? Whatever. Get the A.

Remember when voting seemed like the most important thing you could do as a citizen? As simple as it was, it seemed even more important than any of the protests you attended, or signs you painted, or letters or articles you wrote. Remember when you learned that software is undetectably mutable?

Do you remember when the cracks began to form in your illusion of the US of A? Do you remember the moment when Humpty Dumpty fell of the wall? And no matter what anybody said or did (all the king's horses and all the king's men), you could no longer buy the illusion. You were forever changed.

Do you remember the 60s when the most beloved leaders of our nation – civic and political – were assassinated? If not, do you remember Paul Wellstone (2002) or Gary Webb (2004) or Michael Connell (2008)?

If not, do you remember 911?

The Military Commissions Act?

The Clear Skies and Healthy Forests Acts?
The bloated military budget?
Telecom immunity for spying on citizens?
Outing spies?
Cameras on every street corner?


Do you remember bailing out criminal bankers while millions in America lost (lose) their homes?

Remember how they partied when the government handed their bad debts to the public? Debts we didn’t incur and can’t ever pay? They’re robbin' the 'hood - of our homes, our money and our privacy. As they said in the film, Swing Vote, "If America is the richest nation on Earth, how come so many of us can't afford to live here?"

Evidence of Bush-Rove Crimes Hidden Away in Southern Town?

Excerpt from post [found here]:

Even CNN fell for the ruse of the missing e-mail, also reporting in April 2007 that “millions of White House e-mails may be missing,” although the source of that leak is never made clear. The entire story appears to have been a trial balloon to set up a fake cover story for the massive destruction of critical evidence, but we are not buying it.

The electronic evidence could not have simply disappeared. Even if someone tried to wipe the hard drives, there are back ups in other locations. Somebody knows where this e-mail evidence is hidden, but no one seems to be actively going after it, except for Velvet Revolution, which is in the process of preparing a new subpoena for Averbeck in a civil lawsuit filed over election theft in Ohio.

Determined to get to the bottom of this story by first getting into the compound in Chattanooga that is still GOP Web central, the corporate offices of the company that handled all the Web and Internet work for the Republican National Convention in 2007 and George W. Bush’s reelection campaign in 2004 as well as the e-mail traffic, I teamed up with videographer John Lee of and headed over to 801 Broad Street.

When we got to the suite on the second floor that is listed as the company’s address on its Web site, we were greeted by a bank worker who said the company once occupied that space. Now you have to go into the building’s basement to find a high-tech doorway complete with security scanner. When you ring the buzzer, it takes a few minutes for someone to answer the door. We expected to be turned away, but amazingly we were allowed inside the compound.

We were led down two long hallways in the basement to a secret elevator deep inside the building, which took us up to the fifth floor. We were led down another long hallway lined with Republican law offices and finally into the offices of Smartech-Airnet. We got there just in time to witness a conference in progress by most of the high-powered Information Technology (IT) specialists in town, a group called the Chattanooga Technology Council.

We were greeted by a young man who identified himself only as Chris, who said he had only been with the company for a couple of weeks.

When we asked him if he could confirm our information from other sources that the company had backup copies of the e-mail, he said: “I cannot make any comments on that at all. I would live in fear of saying the wrong thing.”

Maybe there is a good reason for him to be careful with what he says. One of the top technology gurus tied to the Bush family, Mike Connell, died in a mysterious plane crash back during the Christmas holidays of 2008.

Here’s the 10 minute YouTube version of the video.
