McConnell claims that Serco and HSBC developed Santa Visa and tag-the-dog services for their customers with his sister Kristine "Con Air" Marcy, the founder of the Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Fund (1984), and Tom Stacey, founder of the Offender's Tag Association (1983).
McConnell claims that Serco (then RCA GB) placed Michelle Obama as an intellectual property lawyer with the terrorist leader Bernardine Dohrn at Sidley Austin in 1988 to develop D2-Banking - Data custody and Digital banking – as a custodian service for HSBC's tag-the-dog snuff-film archive alongside traditional financial services at Canada Square, London since 1996.
McConnell claims that Marcy and Stacey launched Serco (formerly RCA GB) as a UK/US outsourcing company to provide Santa visas to wag-the-dog news crews and actors on the tag to entrap and blackmail public servants with an ultra-secret product – the HSBC Canada Square archive of snuff films – which, in John le Carré's words, became "a currency that advances the group that possesses it. They tend it jealously, keeping it from others and creating their own little aristocracy. And through that, new people of power come to the top of the service."
McConnell claims that Serco and HSBC customers used Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System at Canada Square to deploy news crews on Santa Visas and crisis actors 'on the tag' at the JonBenét and Lindt café crime scenes for what Kristine Marcy calls 'place-based public [perception] management' and what her brother calls a "Tag The Dog" snuff-film racket.
McConnell invites readers to check the Serco and HSBC customers' use of the Joint Automated Booking System at Canada Square to deploy news crews on Santa Visas and crisis actors 'on the tag' and see if We the People can solve the murder of Tori Johnson, the late manager of the Lindt café during the well-scripted siege in Sydney and the murder of JonBenét Ramsey who was apparently expecting a visit from a [NORAD] Santa on Christmas Day 1996 in Boulder, Colorado.

The Killer of JonBenet Ramsey Seen

"HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA)'s $1.9 billion agreement with the U.S. to resolve charges it enabled Latin American drug cartels to launder billions of dollars was approved by a federal judge.
U.S. District Judge John Gleeson in Brooklyn, New York, signed off yesterday on a deferred-prosecution agreement, a critical component of the London-based bank's settlement. Gleeson said in his order that he was exercising “supervisory power” over the deal even though the bank and government contended he didn’t have authority to approve or deny it.
"A pending criminal case is not window dressing" Gleeson wrote, noting that the case was filed and would remain pending for five years under the agreement. "By placing a criminal matter on the docket of a federal court, the parties have subjected their DPA to the legitimate exercise of the court's authority." HSBC was accused of failing to monitor more than $670 billion in wire transfers and more than $9.4 billion in purchases of U.S. currency from HSBC Mexico, allowing for money laundering, prosecutors said. The bank also violated U.S. economic sanctions against Iran, Libya, Sudan, Burma and Cuba, according to a criminal information filed in the case."
"Sydney cafe siege: Killer Man Haron Monis filmed YouTube videos of attack and forced hostages to use social media to relay demands
Videos appeared online apparently framed, filmed and uploaded by hostages
Tuesday 16 December 2014
The world was introduced to "terrorism 2.0" in Australia yesterday as an Islamist extremist attempted to use hostages and the international media to further his demands.
As the 16-hour siege at the Lindt Chocolat Café in Sydney's city centre was followed across the world, the hostage-taker Man Haron Monis, an Iranian self-styled cleric, tried to use social media to extend his messages and demands.
Audio recordings of the hostages were released after an initial attempt by Monis, 50, to have his messages broadcast by Australian media.
When that failed to elicit a response, four YouTube videos appeared online apparently framed, filmed and uploaded by his hostages.
By lunchtime in Britain, four videos were viewable, each containing short, desperate messages from those inside. Standing in front of a black Islamist flag and the Lindt café logo, each laid out their kidnappers' list of demands. They included the delivery of an Isis flag; a blanket broadcast from the media stating that the siege was an Islamic State attack on Australia and a [wag the dog] conversation with Prime Minister Tony Abbott via a "live feed" in return for some hostages. One hostage questioned why the demands appeared so difficult to meet adding: "Our Isis brother has been very kind to us."
Police had advised that broadcasting the vidoes while the siege was ongoing could interfere with operational procedures. Within less than 30 minutes, the videos had been removed from YouTube and the account, which had appeared under the username "Joel Herat" had been shut down."

"Why was Sydney siege 'hate sheikh' Man Haron Monis at large?
Intelligence officials face questions as to why a self-confessed Islamist was able to take 17 people hostage
By Jonathan Pearlman, in Sydney, and Colin Freeman
10:30PM GMT 15 Dec 2014
Australian intelligence officials are facing questions as to why a self-confessed Islamist who took 17 people hostage in a café in central Sydney had not been deemed a security threat.
Man Haron Monis, 50, who subjected his captives to a 16-hour ordeal at gunpoint, was killed along with two of his hostages when armed police stormed the café in the small hours local time. Four people were injured, including an officer who was grazed by a shot to the face.
It emerged that Monis, a self-styled "sheikh", had appeared before the Australian courts last year for writing hate mail to the families of Australian servicemen killed in Afghanistan. He was also on bail [allegedly on the tag] accused of being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife, and for 40 counts of sexual assault and indecency. Despite his notoriety and public profile – he had vented his anti-Western views several times on Australian television – he was apparently deemed a harmless crank rather than an imminent danger by Australian intelligence officials.
As a result, he was able to walk into a café in Martin Place, a pedestrian area near some of the country's biggest financial institutions, armed with a shotgun, just as customers were enjoying mid-morning coffee.
Footage filmed from nearby buildings showed terrified hostages with their faces pressed against the café's windows as Monis, who was wearing a headband with Arabic inscriptions, held his gun to their heads.
He also unveiled a banner with an Islamic declaration of faith on it, and later tried to demand that one be brought to him showing the slogan of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
Police eventually stormed the building around 2am. Andrew Scipione, the police commissioner of New South Wales, said his officers had had no choice but to enter the building after hearing gunfire from inside.
"They believed at that time that if they didn't enter, there would have been many more lives lost," he told a news conference. "Gunshots caused officers to move straight to an emergency action plan."
However, Mike Baird, the premier of New South Wales, appeared to acknowledge that there had been potential failings by the security services.
Asked if Monis should have been on bail, he said: "I am concerned that there was a vicious, horrendous attack that has taken place in the heart of our city, and there will be many questions in the coming days and weeks to get to the bottom of what happened in the last 24 hours."
The prime minister, Tony Abbott, urged Australians not to be intimidated by the attack and to go about their business as usual. "The whole point of politically motivated violence is to scare people out of being themselves," he said. "Australia is a peaceful, open, and generous society. Nothing should ever change that." Australia's security service has faced an escalating threat level from home-grown Islamist terrorists in recent months, most of them disaffected youths in Muslim immigrant communities. Around 90 Australians are believed to have traveled to fight for Isil in Iraq and Syria.
Three months ago, shortly after Mr Abbott lifted the security alert to "high", police raids around the country thwarted an alleged plot to behead a random member of the public and film it for Isil propaganda. The proposed location was to have been Martin Place, which is one of Sydney's best-known thoroughfares. Monis is believed to have arrived in Australia as a refugee [allegedly entered on a Serco Santa Visa] in 1996 from Iran, which is dominated by Shia Muslims considered apostates in Isil's Sunni extremist worldview. He later converted to Sunni Islam and became a known opponent of the US-led military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Australia supported both operations and has sent advisers to Iraqi forces fighting Isil."
"Published Jun 11, 2014 More about the JonBenet Ramsey case at http://crimejail.com Patsy Ramsey died before Linda Arndt could fulfill her pledge to JonBenet's mother. "Last year, I was told just about this time of year that she was on her deathbed and gravely ill," said Arndt, the former Boulder Police officer who was the lone detective in the Ramsey home when JonBenet's body was found in the basement on Dec. 26, 1996. "That spurred me to reach out to her and find her again, which I did. She responded." Ramsey battled her disease for 13 years, succumbing to ovarian cancer early Saturday at her father's home in Roswell, Ga. She was 49. She will be laid to rest Thursday alongside JonBenet in Marietta, Ga. Their renewed contact in May 2005, Arndt said, "was a heart-to-heart connection, common decency, showing courtesy and empathy to someone who really had a lot of tragedy." She talked about what the contact between the two meant to her. "Knowing that she was dying, that was the impetus I needed to finish, to fulfill the promise that she asked of me," said Arndt, 45. Officer 'gave her my word' The day was Jan. 8, 1997. Arndt was at the Child Advocacy Center in Niwot where JonBenet's older brother Burke - now 19 - was being interviewed by a child psychologist. "Patsy and I were alone for over an hour, and she shared a lot of things in that conversation. She did, and I did," Arndt recalled. "And one of the things she demanded of me, she looked me in the eye and grabbed my hand and said, 'Promise me, promise me you will stay on this case and you will find out who did this to JonBenet.' http://m.rockymountainnews.com/news/2..."

"History of the Jail
The Boulder County Jail, located at 3200 Airport Road, Boulder, Colorado, 80301, opened in 1988 with a bed design capacity of 287. The jail is a 103,400 square foot facility currently having a bed capacity of 536.
These beds range from maximum security single-cells to minimum security dormitory housing units. The total cost of the facility including acquisition of the land was $14.95 million. Overall construction costs were approximately $11 million.
The jail was designed using scenarios developed by Voorhis and Associates, Inc., Criminal Justice Consultants, Sheriff Brad Leach, retired, his staff and others from Boulder County. These scenarios were developed into a pre-architectural program. Then, utilizing this program, an innovative facility design was created by Lescher and Mahoney of the Dana, Larson, Roubal and Associates Architectural and Engineering Group. This design provides the Boulder County Jail an effective environment for management of its inmate population.
The facility was developed by utilizing the knowledge and experience of our jail employees, other criminal justice agencies and other users of the jail. In scenario development, the pre-architectural program and the design of this facility evolved. This enabled us to build a facility which meets the needs of those who use it. The design has already earned several architectural awards.
The jail houses inmates of all security levels, from maximum to minimum including work release inmates. The work release dormitory is connected to, but separate from the main jail. It shares the main jail support systems while preventing minimum security offenders from mixing with a population requiring greater security. The result is a jail that can provide more efficient treatment and control for all inmates. This, and the development of a jail management computer system [Joint Automated Booking System – JABS], allow the Sheriff's Office to operate a facility safely and effectively. The operational scenarios and architectural design resulted in a lower staff-to-inmate ratio while maintaining the safety and security of the facility. This is a cost effective jail in terms of staffing and inmate management."
"In 1974 he [Stacey] became a prison visitor, following his own imprisonment (as a foreign correspondent) in India in 1965.
In 1981 he conceived the electronic tag for (appropriate) offenders, as an alternative to imprisonment, and in 1982 formed and launched the Offender's Tag Association as a pressure group for the adoption and exploitation of the tag (a term adopted by Stacey from the inception of the scheme). Offender tagging has subsequently become widely used in penological reform in Britain and throughout the world. Stacey [launched the Boulder Colorado chapter of the OTA in 1983] remains Director of the OTA. He continued in the role ever since."
"Serious Fraud Office launches criminal probe into claims G4S and Serco over-charged for tagging DEAD offenders
G4S and Serco accused of wrongly billing for non-existent tags
Estimates suggest one in six of 18,000 tags billed for were not real
Ministers asked fraud investigators to look into claims after internal audit
By MATT CHORLEY
MAILONLINE POLITICAL EDITOR PUBLISHED: 12:13 GMT, 4 November 2013 | UPDATED: 14:25 GMT, 4 November 2013
The Serious Fraud Office has launched a criminal investigation into claims private firms G4S and Serco were overcharging for tagging criminals.
The probe comes after it was claimed taxpayers were charged tens of millions of pounds for 'phantom' electronic tags on criminals who were either dead, in jail or had left the country.
It is a fresh blow for government plans to outsource even more work to private firms in a bid to save money.
Ministers fear taxpayers could have overpaid two private companies for their work tagging criminals The government launched a review of all contracts with G4S and Serco signed by every government department after doubts were raised about the use of taxpayers money.
A disciplinary investigation was begun into former officials in the Ministry of Justice after discovering contract managers were aware of billing issues in 2008, but ‘nothing substantive was done'.
The scandal could date back as far as 1999, when tagging of criminals began in England and Wales.
Since then the taxpayer has spent £1billion on tagging and monitoring offenders. The current contracts began in 2005."
