|Compliance Checks: What to do when the feds come to town
A Fact Guide Complied by Once Fallen

[NOTE: This fact page compiled from information obtained from both online activist forums and blogs that
focused on these issues. The ideas are the intellectual properties of those who penned these words. I
merely reposted it on my website for the benefit of those targeted by the police]
It is time for the "Sweeps" -- No, not the TV ratings "Sweeps," the US Marshalls sweeps. Formerly called FALCON raids,
the gestapo.. er.. "US Marshals", working with state and local T4 Squads.. oops.. "Law enforcement," are conducting
nationwide sweeps. It is not uncommon to see regular reports of sweeps or so-called "compliance checks" across the
county. They will try to scare you into allowing warrantless searches of your property, including your personal effects
and your own body. However, if you are NOT on probation/ parole, you have the right to refuse them entry. Below are a
few tips posted on a forum that you should keep in mind if the gestapo come to YOUR door.
Something to keep in mind: The US Marshals were granted jurisdiction in "investigating and apprehending" Failure to
Register violators who cross state lines. The US Marshals DO NOT have the authority to handle compliance checks.
They simply tag along. The local authorities are the main individuals in charge.
Have these tips been tested? Yes, by me. In May 2013, the Sheriff and a US Marshal came to my door. I refused to let
them in. I refused to step outside my apartment (thus I would have been "outside" my property). They tried bullying me
to no avail. The others who were arrested in the check were either actual absconders, or a few individuals who let the
police in and they found reasons to lock them up. You can read my ordeal here:
Addendum: In regards to videotaping police, the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review a federal appeals court
decision finding it unconstitutional to enforce an Illinois state law that makes it a felony to videotape police officers
working in public if a microphone is turned on. The case in the US Appeals Court decision is ACLU of Illinois v. Alvarez,
679 F. 3d 583. (7th Cir. 2012). This makes the decision the current precedent.
