Hour 1

Howard Lichtman


Co-Founder and Executive Director

Howard Lichtman is the founder of the THICKREDLINE Project.
He is president of the Human Productivity Lab, a consultancy that helps world-class distributed organizations learn and collaborate at the speed of light. He has been arrested three times in 2020 for victimless crimes wasting his time, police resources, and taxpayer monies. The THICKREDLINE Project came out of discussions with Sheriff's deputies and police officers that didn't want to be enforcing victimless crimes or raising revenue on their friends and neighbors for politicians.

``The quickest way to end violence and division in our cities is to put an end to the polices that cause violence and division.`` - Howard Lichtman

ABOUT US: The Thick Red Line project is an effort to restore respect for law enforcement by abolishing victimless crime. We are concerned for the safety of both the police and the public in the wake of the George Floyd riots. We believe we have a solution that safeguards both and dramatically reduces the amount of violence in society while reducing costs to the tax payer, dramatically reduces the prison population, and frees up the police to focus on real crime.

Victimless Crimes are Not Really Crimes… And Make the Cops the Criminals

A real crime, by definition, has a perpetrator and a victim: murder, assault, rape, theft, and extortion are all obvious crimes because there is a victim. Politicians and bureaucrats frequently institute illogical, immoral and counter-productive "laws" (politician scribbles) that penalize peaceful, non-violent people for "crimes" that have no victim. Drug possession, gambling, and making arrests for ignoring Covid-19 lock down and social distancing orders are examples of victimless crimes where politicians attempt to get police to use violence immorally and preemptively on overwhelmingly peaceful people frequently to raise revenue or enforce their version of morality on a population. When the police use violence and coercion against peaceful people for victimless crimes (there is simply no way to sugar-coat this) it makes the cops the criminals who are engaged in kidnapping and extortion under the color of law.


The Solution – Organize Collectively and Refuse to Enforce

To restore the trust and faith in the police, we are suggesting that individual Sheriffs, police chiefs, deputies, police officers and elected officials organize their colleagues and agencies through their union and/or collectively without the union into an agency-wide refusal to enforce any law or regulation that doesn't have a real victim. This would:
dramatically reduce the violence in society committed by the police and instantly reduce the racial and societal division it causes
reduce the influence of organized crime by getting rid of drug, gambling and prostitution markets
save taxpayers billions in apprehension, court costs, incarceration expenses, and lawsuits related to excessive violence and unintended deaths
dramatically reduce the almost 500,000 people incarcerated for victimless crimes who are frequently forced to work as slave labor in for-profit prisons.

Because politicians are attempting to force the police into more tyrannical policies including stealth gun confiscation under "red flag laws", bankrupt local businesses with lockdown orders based on suspicious "science", and are now talking openly about using the police for mandatory vaccinations, honest Sheriffs and police are going to have to draw a THICKREDLINE in the sand. We are helping them understand where that line needs to be drawn logically and morally in the 1000+ year natural law tradition.

Draft – The Thick Red Line Pledge – Draft

The officers of this department recognize natural law and understand that it is morally and logically impossible for the government or our badge to confer rights upon us that the population does not have and cannot delegate.

We pledge to only act to protect lives, liberty and property.

We renounce the use of violence on peaceful people and refuse to enforce:

Victimless crimes including prohibitions on sales of substances or services between consenting adults, gambling, mandated masks, possession of firearms, accidentless "speeding" or other victimless traffic infractions.

Mandated medical interventions including forced vaccination, mandated social distancing, or closure of businesses based on alleged public health issues.

Seizure of money or property through asset forfeiture.

Mandated tax stickers, emissions testing, insurance regulations and other government-revenue collection where the government doesn't have a willing counter-party.

Funds Needed: $10,000…

Stretch Goal: $20,000

Spent to Date: $700
