Hi:

Need advice or legal assistance regarding response from University of Maryland Department of Aerospace Engineering denying records, but provided my right to seek an Administrative or Judicial Hearing.

If I am not mistaken, these people meaning (UOMDAE) testified against the Drone (UAV) bill that I and several Maryland State Delegates had before House Judiciary Committee back in March of this year to reign in privacy violations and rights for Marylanders.

I believe they are involved with surveillance and spy plane programs already documented by ACLU and several newspapers that exposed FBI Cessna Spy planes in Baltimore during the Baltimore civil unrest.

However, I have documents and proof, surveillance spy plane programs was going since 2010 way before Freddie Gray uprising in Baltimore.

Spy copter program has been going on since 2006 and still going on now.

Please advise!

Thanks,

Liz

It would help you immeasurably if instead of sending out unreadable requests that require the help of a forensic linguist to decipher, you were able to reasonably describe the documents you are looking for. It would also do you well to understand exactly what you are requesting, as well. If you do not speak English well, perhaps you should ask a friend to draft the request for you.

” I, Marilyn Howard hereby request under MPIA any data collection activities inconjunction with (MCAC) Maryland Coordination Analysis Center, (ATAC) Maryland Antiterrorism Advisory Council, (SAR) Suspicious Activity Reporting and Fusion Center coordinated sharing and intelligence gathering with state and local agencies together with law enforcement partnership with public health (MEDAVAC) PREVENTING TERRORISM, COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISTS GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS AND CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAMS).” Here you ask for “any data collection activities”. You presumably mean documents regarding the data collection activities, however you didn’t write that and the MPIA doesn’t require agencies to hire mind readers.

“Please provide relating to me any and all documents, video, photos, audios, and voice recordings of any daily activities. ” Here you ask for “any and all documents, video, photos, audios, and voice recordings of any daily activities.” This is an incredibly broad request, and presumably you left a word out here. Do you except them to provide all “documents, video, photos, audios, and voice recordings” that they make each day? “Any and all court orders, warrants, summons,” You are now requesting court records. The University of Maryland Department of Aerospace Engineering is not a court. “supeanos NSL,” Here you request “subpeanos NSL”, presumably you mean subpoenas and national security letters. The FBI is the only agency that issues national security letters. “police daily logs, police notes,” The University of Maryland Department of Aerospace Engineering is not a law enforcement agency. Why would they have a policy daily log, or police notes? “ground and aerial surveillance including (SPYCOPTER AND USE OF SURVEILLANCE PLANES) intelligence gathering of all speech communications and electronic communications, iPhone, smart phones, cell phones and computers” Again, you fail to specify exactly what you want. Why would the University of Maryland Department of Aerospace Engineering have any of this stuff? “Please provide any and all multi jurisdictional coordinated efforts and data collection activities within Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Howard County, Montgomery County, and Prince Georges County.” Yet again, you fail to specify what you are looking for. Also, again, why would University of Maryland Department of Aerospace Engineering have any of this stuff?
