PEARCE, FBI-LA, FBI-BKK, ICE MALFEASANCE
9.1 VIOLATION OF THE FOURTH AMENDMENT OF THE US CONSTITUTION:
Based upon the information provided in previous sections 7 and 8, the requirements necessary for a “probable cause, full investigation” under US laws have not been met and are based entirely upon illegally obtained circumstantial evidence. Therefore FBI-LA illegally initiated a “full investigation” on June 10, 2013 in violation of the Fourth Amendment Constitutional rights of HOBBS.
The FBI-LA’s investigations and operations guide does not permit the use of CHS’s or paid informants to violate the Bill or Rights and the protections afforded by the United States Constitution in regard to its own citizens. Only with special approval and under special circumstances are CHS’s allowed to break the law in order to assist FBI investigations and Agents must be held accountable should they induce a CHS to break any law whether it is the laws of the CHS’s own country or that of the United States.
FBI-LA, based in Los Angeles was able to induce his CHS in Thailand to violate both US and Thai law enabling an illegal interrogation in June 2013.
9.2 VIOLATION OF THE PRIVACY ACT, 5 U.S.C. § 552a:
RTP have confirmed in court testimony that NOJA received HOBBS’ criminal record and passport information directly from the FBI [PAGE 5] . FBI-LA’s own records show multiple communications between him and NOJA on January 29, 2013 and again on June 3, 2013 and June 5, 2013 when they interrogated the child at ATCC. FBI-LA records obtaining HOBBS’ passport photo on June 5, 2013 [page 81] and his Florida driver’s license photo on June 11, 2013 [pages 82-83].
HOBBS’ 2009 passport photo must have been given to the FBI’s informant prior to June 3, 2013 when the FBI-LA went to the CHS’s center to illegally interrogate the boy since no other photos were available at that time. It was not possible otherwise to have the THAI VICTIM identify HOBBS since the vehicle registration does not provide any photographic image.
It was not until December 26, 2013 when RTP requested immigration photos of HOBBS did any other photos become available to any party for identification. The RTP and NOJA testimony confirms that in December the boy did not identify the photo because the man in the photo had a beard. The only photo that any authority would have of HOBBS having a beard was prior to 2010 and can be no other photo than his 2009 passport photo and Florida driver’s license photo.
The RTP case files do not include any copy of this vital evidence that was used to first allegedly identify HOBBS and there is no record in FBI-LA, ICE or RTP files of it ever being provided to RTP from the FBI-LA or ICE. It is clear that the RTP had believed the FBI-LA and CHS’s investigation since their first attempt to legally conduct an interrogation and identification failed using the same illegally obtained photo of HOBBS. This document was not included in the RTP file because it was obtained illegally and there is no possible way to confirm its authenticity and was a photo of HOBBS and not STRIKE or anyone else because the interrogation of the boy in June 2013 was conducted illegally.
9.3 VIOLATION OF THE FIFTH AMENDMENT OF THE US CONSTITUTION – DUE PROCESS:
United States Law and the FBI’s own doctrine mandates that police to provide Brady materials, exculpatory evidence, not only to the accused, prosecutors and courts but also to investigators. FBI-LA and ICE have been deliberate in their exclusion of all exculpatory evidence from the RTP investigators.
When approached by the lawyer William Harrison in July 2014, and being informed that he was retained by HOBBS, FBI-LA did not feel it necessary to inform him that FBI-LA had its own investigation of HOBBS and stated “unless Steve gives him a detailed proffer he had no interest in getting involved with your case”. FBI-LA had already been involved in HOBBS’ case for seventeen months.
In order for FBI-LA to consider investigating an indicted fugitive pedophile STRIKE he knows lived at MIDTOWN when the crimes occurred required a detailed confession from the perpetrator. Whereas to investigate, arrest, interrogate and maliciously prosecute HOBBS his measurement only required an illegally obtained delivery van registration which was registered in another city 140 kilometers from the crime scene, an illegally conducted child’s interrogation and nothing else.
FBI-LA concealed the fact that an FBI investigation was initiated one year prior and remained open. This deception prevented Harrison as HOBBS’ legal representative from requesting information that the FBI-LA’s investigation had uncovered and any information about STRIKE or HOBBS they may have had.
On July 14, 2014 and again on July 31, 2014, FBI-LA recorded receiving information about STRIKE from the Maui prosecutor yet in the first week of August, FBI-LA informs lawyer Harrison that he will not investigate STRIKE and also lies to the Maui prosecutor that “Whitworth and the FBI believed you may have committed the crime in Thailand BECAUSE they are aware STRIKE had roommates and think you may have been one of the roommates”]. If FBI-LA in fact believed there was any truth to this statement then why did FBI-LA not inform RTP on December 12, 2013 or again on April 3, 2014.
The only factual evidence (van registration) and FBI records of June 10, 2013 state that HOBBS lived 140 kilometers away at Sindhorn Tower in Bangkok and thus it is impossible for FBI-LA to have made a determination that HOBBS was STRIKE’s roommate from the evidence and is contrary to his own evidence. Also ICE recorded on February 5, 2014 that HOBBS worked at Sindhorn Tower in Bangkok. Therefore, this is a false and intentionally misleading statement to a court official in an effort to prevent HOBBS and his lawyer from obtaining exculpatory evidence to exonerate HOBBS.
It is one measure of FBI-LA’s intentional violation of HOBBS’ fifth amendment rights to due process to not voluntarily provide information about STRIKE to his lawyer or HOBBS that he had in his possession since July 14, 2014. It is altogether another measure to intentionally lie and give misleading information to the Maui prosecutor to prevent its disclosure and obstruct justice.
His actions were clearly necessary to conceal his actions in Thailand and from the Department of Justice and the RTP and HOBBS.
9.4 RECKLESS MISCONDUCT AND NOBLE CAUSE CORRUPTION:
The FBI would not want their tactics and methods known in Thailand or their DOJ superiors and therefore it was better to jeopardize the life and liberty of an innocent American than investigate and prosecute the real perpetrator. This explains why FBI-LA and FBI-BKK refused to investigate STRIKE even though there was far more “probable cause” based upon “legally obtained relevant information” to investigate him than there has ever been against HOBBS.
PEARCE, FBI-LA, FBI-BKK or ICE know that if STRIKE was investigated in the USA or Thailand, their tactics and methods and those involved in Thailand would likely be exposed and their associates, NOJA, Pol. Arnon Infong and others who cooperated with their illegal investigation would be exposed to litigation and closing down their investigative mechanism.
The DOJ team with the obvious knowledge of the possible ramifications of their investigation and methods and failures deliberately conspired to withhold evidence and obstruct justice in the case against HOBBS’ that FBI-LA stated himself in his report on April 11, 2014 stated was based upon alleged statements and identification made to FBI-LA in June 2013.
The actions of the FBI-LA, ICE and their paid informant NOJA are far more egregious exploitations of minor children by those swore to protect them than anything done by the perpetrators themselves. Since these official continue to conceal what they have done the child VICTIMS and the RTP that they deceived are the only remaining victims because their attempted frame-up of HOBBS failed.
This can only be characterized as malfeasance, reckless misconduct and “noble cause corruption” in this case shows the Department of Justice’s total disregard for the sovereignty and the laws of Thailand and the United States of America.
PEARCE, FBI-LA, FBI-BKK, ICE, RSO have continued their misconduct for two years by repeatedly and intentionally obstructing HOBBS’ and RTP’s pursuit of justice when they have full knowledge of their involvement and culpability.
PEARCE has continued this “reckless misconduct” and collaboration with FBI-LA, FBI-BKK and ICE to conceal their illegal activities with more lies and false assertions in his August 11, 2015 email to RSO Thomas Vandenbrink which he knows that was completely false, “the matter which began with the boy(s) identifying you” which is proven to be completely false. There is no possible way for a US Attorney to have interpreted either the FBI-LA, ICE or RTP files with this conclusion and there is absolutely no evidence to support this conclusion.
As noted in section 7 and 8, the FBI-LA and PEARCE have asserted a far greater standard for proving HOBBS’ innocence than has ever been given to proving his guilt. The preponderance of evidence logic either escapes PEARCE or alternatively must cover up his involvement.
