"The Fast and The Furious: Drivers, Speed Cameras and Control in a Risk Society" presents a sociological and criminological perspective critical to understanding the driver's role at the centre of road safety interventions. Such an approach is, it is argued, as crucial to an understanding of attempts to reduce road crashes, deaths and injuries as approaching such questions from an engineering or educational perspective. The book offers an explanation for the continued debate about one road safety intervention - the speed camera - by situating that debate within contemporary literature about the 'risk society' (Beck, 1992) and more broadly understood experiences of risk faced on a daily basis by drivers. Rather than a focus on risk as something that can be objectively assessed, measured and managed separately from the social context in which it is encountered, it suggests that 'risk' is something that permeates this particular debate from every angle. The book achieves its aims by utilising sociological and criminological perspectives to investigate issues such as: the social context in which it is possible for drivers to reject official scientific expertise about crash causation and camera effectiveness; the self-defined 'respectability' of the population being problematised and its juxtaposition with a 'proper' police focus on 'real criminals'; the reconceptualisation of law-breaking as risk-taking rather than inherently 'wrong' behaviour and its consequences for the enforcement of laws based on risk assessment; and, the experience of being controlled by technology and of receiving what is essentially 'automated justice'. These and other issues are explored and suggested as illuminating of both the real concerns underpinning this debate and potentially instructive for future attempts to control risky behaviour both within and beyond a road safety context.
NEW: Updated to document a total of 70 anomalies documented with 166 linked endnotes and to include as an appendix the letter sent via certified mail to FBI Director James Comey with a copy of the chapter in draft form. - - - I have executed a false flag operation - no one died - for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The term "false flag" means nothing more or less than "not what it seems." The FBI, our final line of defense against domestic treason or foreign covert operations on US soil, appears to have sacrificed its integrity and turned false flag terrorism into a budget-building campaign. - - - Bottom Line Up Front: Orlando was a false flag planned months in advance by the Obama-Biden Administration, and in my judgment, specifically by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with the full complicity in advance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Among the key indicators - I list seventy (70) of them with linked documentation in this publication - are these: 01 Omar Mateen did not expect to die - he was booked to fly on the 14th 02 Mateen has been groomed since 2011, probably by the Mossad pretending to be CIA, and including two upper-end trips to Saudi Arabia and beyond. 03 The responding police were ordered not to go after him inside the club 04 All medical matters are ludicrous, undocumented, an impossibility 05 All witnesses appear to be scripted, less the laughing winking cop 06 Three musical follow-ups were clearly developed in advance of the day 07 The event started at closing time; 7 of the 8 exits were not used. 08 All audio-visual evidence has been eradicated - nothing from the CCTVs in the club (over eight of them), nothing from individual cell phones, nothing from Mateen's u nscripted calls to his handler during the 3 hour stand-down, nothing from police scanner traffic during the entire period. 09 The FBI is known to have manufactured 175 domestic "terrorist" cases. - - - The following groups of anomalous questions are addressed: A. Context: Who Benefits? B. Why Orlando, Why A Gay Club at Closing Time? C. Evidence of Multiple Shooters? D. Media-Based Evidence of Complicity & Cover-Up? E. Government-Based Evidence of Theatrical False Flag? F. Omar Mateen's Personal or Family History? G. Omar Mateen's Psychological Profile? H. Pulse Club as a Stage Set? I. Medical Characteristics of Alleged or Real Victims? J. Contextual Complicity of Government? KEY QUESTION: Did anyone including Omar Mateen actually die? There has been no evidence at all that anyone has actually died. If no one actually died - indeed Mateen and his family could be enroute to the witness protection program and a happy resettlement as this is written - then this was a badly-staged DHS false flag operation with the possibility that some of the good people trapped in our bad system of government knowingly allowed it to be so bad as a form of internal civil disobedience - a good thing. If Mateen and the claimed 49 did die, then this could be a Mossad operation that has been planned since 2011 against the day - today - when Israel has its back to the wall in relation to the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and Obama is resisting giving Israel the aid package it wants while also supporting a United Nations (UN) decision against Israel on Palestine. This survey of seventy distinct anomalies is offered as a tool for public reflection.
