I think it was Friedrich Nietzsche who said that “man is the cruelest animal ” and every year or so a story comes along that reminds you of just how true that statement is and man’s inhumanity to man and the evil that dwells inside some of us… When catalyzed by greed and narcississm …the need for revenge can be all-consuming, and the results …devastating.
As I was reading the other day I stumbled upon a story that piqued my interest enough to start digging into it to get the background and fact check the original story. The people who are the victims in this story have come to be called the “IRP6.” http://freetheirp6.wix.com/freetheirp6#!
6 men….strong and devout Christians all of themk, have had their lives rudely interrupted and taken from them by a corrupt criminal justice system with it’s hand on one side of the scales of justice …driven by greed and uncaring about the ruined lives it leaves in its wake.
“When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable, the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer.” – Bertolt Brecht
When you see an injustice such as this taking place in every person’s duty to shine a bright light on it and say enough is enough because any of us could be next. I will let you read about this for yourself that I strongly encourage you to take some affirmative step to support these six men who are currently scheduled to spend the next 10 to 11 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit. Man’s inhumanity is truly the keynote of stupidity in power. At the heart of this corruption is a federal court judge and the law firm she used to work for and a sociopathic woman consumed with evil. It’s an interesting story and one that everybody needs to hear… So please help me with this and spread it to at least two other people… Remember you could be next.
THERE WILL BE FOLLOW UPS TO THIS …COUNT ON IT!
HERE IS THE STORY
Beginning of IRP Solutions
IRP Solutions was established in February 2003 and began to heavily market its flagship Case Investigative Life Cycle (CILC®) software solution in August 2003 to major federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, including but not limited to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Justice (DOJ) and the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
The Impact of 911
IRP Solutions Corporation was formed a couple of years after the tragedies of 9-11 (IRP is an acronym for “Investigative Resource Planning”). This was a country in shock. We experienced the worst attack in history against our country on our native soil. Many of the events of that day and months that would follow showed gaps in the investigative processes of our law enforcement agencies, but yet there were no solutions readily available to address the need. Meanwhile, years prior to 9-11 the founders of IRP Solutions had begun development of a small stand-alone software application to be used as an individual work product for law enforcement.
That initial work was done under the company name Leading Team. Although the initial software developed by Leading Team was an enterprise-class solution, it was not web-enabled or capable of addressing the major gaps that were identified post-911 (i.e., Lack of ability to share intelligence/investigative information between law enforcement at all levels of government, etc.). The company founders knew that with a little hard work, they could develop a software application that could significantly impact our nation’s law enforcement operations. However, they didn’t feel that the current company name accurately reflected the new strategy. Thus, IRP Solutions Corporation was formed.
The Call from DHS: A Dream Opportunity….
In October 2003, IRP received a call from the Program Manager at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for an initiative that was called the Consolidated Enforcement Environment Initiative. DHS wanted IRP to conduct a web demo of the software solution that IRP had developed. IRP’s web demo was very successful and the company was asked to travel to Washington, DC to conduct a demo before a larger audience.
In November 2003, IRP travelled to Washington, DC to demonstrate their software solution before the DHS Consolidated Enforcement Environment Initiative team which comprised of DHS, FBI, Secret Service, Federal Air Marshals, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, TSA, U.S. Coast Guard, and Deloitte. This audience questioned IRP on the technical and functional aspects of the software. This was, yet another, successful demonstration of the software that IRP had developed. Following the meeting, DHS provided IRP with “Eyes Only” documentation and asked IRP to begin working (non-contractually) on capabilities to meet certain federal law enforcement scenarios.
IRP Solutions’ Case Investigative Life Cycle (CILC®)
Although CILC software was considered the most promising, strong political winds from large entrenched competitors significantly slowed the sales cycle, which subsequently caused a cash flow crunch and aging debt related to the development of the software.
The RAID….The IRP Dream Becomes A Nightmare…February 9, 2005
The morning of February 9th, 2005 started like most days at IRP Solutions. Company staff began to show up for work. The day was a typical business day until unexpected guest showed up at the reception desk. IRP Solutions was being raided by federal agents for alleged wrongdoing. There were 21 federal agents at the front door of a business, that at the time, only had approximately 20 employees. A warrant was presented stating that IRP Solutions and its executives were accused of mail and wire fraud.
Let’s rewind a couple of years and set the stage for how all of this came about…..
In 2003, IRP Solutions (IRP) was established to develop software for law enforcement agencies. Through its marketing efforts, IRP became engaged with major agencies like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As IRP became more engaged with agencies like DHS and NYPD, there were more requests for modifications to the software. DHS even told IRP to “…put a federal face on the software…”. Agencies were sending very positive signals and continued to ask for modifications to the software to meet their respective needs. Because of the modification and customization requests from agencies, IRP management began to explore ways to meet the increased demand for software development. IRP began to explore the option of augmenting the staff with contract labor.
IRP contacted staffing companies and explained the dilemma of trying to meet the requests of the law enforcement agencies. Several companies did their due diligence and considered IRP an acceptable risk for executing a contract. There were several companies that chose not to team with IRP. Contracts were executed to bring on technologists to incorporate technical enhancements requested by the federal government and local law enforcement. The agencies were fully engaged with IRP to make enhancements to the software, which resulted in the need for IRP to continue extending its engagement with staffing companies. Consequently, the debt continued to grow.
In the meantime, in late 2004, DHS requested pricing quotes that exceeded $100 million. Additionally, DHS explicitly stated that they were working on the budget and needed the pricing quotes as part of their budget exercises. This was later substantiated by FBI interview documents in which a DHS official stated that they (DHS) were setting up a pilot project for IRP.
Now fast forward to February 2005…IRP business offices are raided by over 20 federal agents for alleged fraud and running a scam, accused of not developing software, but bilking staffing companies of millions of dollars. IRP was also accused of making up stories about customers like the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, NYPD, Colorado Bureau of Investigations, and several others.
There was no fraud or scheme…IRP Solutions was a legitimate business that incurred business debt.
A grand jury handed down a 25-count indictment in June 2009, charging the six with fraud in never paying $4 million or more the company owed to about 40 companies that provided temporary labor to IRP.
Dupree said, “The Christian businessmen built a small company that concentrated on developing a software application called CILC, which stands for Case Investigative Life Cycle. This software was developed to aid law enforcement in investigating a case through to prosecution. The necessity of this type of software was overly clear as the government indicated the main reason 9/11 can occur was because of the inability of government agencies to share information.”
“In other words, the FBI alleged that IRP Solutions did not actually have software at all, “said Dupree
