WI Tesla Kills One: Driver Charged With Homicide for Head-on Motorcycle Collision

Tesla looks now exactly like the assassination robot I’ve been warning about for nearly a decade now:

A motorcyclist died in a head-on collision with a black Tesla in Caledonia Saturday morning — the Tesla driver was arrested for homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle among several other charges.

The driver of the Tesla was headed West on four-mile road near the 6000 block when he went to pass the car in front of him. The motorcyclist was traveling in the opposite direction and the Tesla hit the motorcycle head-on, according to a release by the Caledonia Police Department.

The motorcyclist was thrown on the side of the road and was pronounced dead when police arrived.

Tell me this isn’t foreshadowing of millions of centrally planned and controlled road robots operating negligently, killing the people around them on public roads.

Tesla Owner Terrified of FSD After Multiple Homicide Attempts

In 2016 in my BSidesLV keynote presentation I argued Tesla Autopilot was an algorithm engineered to kill, choosing to do harm.

Few were ready to believe then what I said we could prove with simple tests of the vehicle.

Eight years later this seems to only get proven over and over again by people on public roads, let alone with controlled tests by the Dawn Project. Just the other day I wrote about the latest FSD crossing a double yellow on a blind curve almost crashing head-on into a police car.

So there should be no doubt anymore: FSD is a killer robot unsafe for any public areas.

Now look at the latest FSD complaint about it failing horribly.

You call this training? Tesla engineers prove that more data doesn’t mean better intelligence, and in fact can mean far worse. Their poorly designed software, frequently attempting to kill people, should be banned from roads.

A well soiled machine?

Some might say if we ever needed real world test video to prove radar (e.g. lidar) must be mandatory for driving automation, this is it.

Every real engineer knows you can’t remove radar from a high speed road robot and expect it to not crash.

In 2021, we began our transition to Tesla Vision by removing radar from Model 3 and Model Y, followed by Model S and Model X in 2022. Today, in most regions around the globe, these vehicles now rely on Tesla Vision, our camera-based Autopilot system.

That 2021 management decision against engineering (redeploying its engineers to work at Twitter instead) was just one of the many reasons why Tesla crash so often, killing so many people. And notably they have abruptly reversed themselves, without admitting any fault for crashes let alone homicide.

Tesla bought over $2 million worth of lidar sensors from Luminar this year [in 2024] / Elon Musk previously dismissed the laser sensor as a ‘crutch’ and said that any company relying on lidar to power self-driving was ‘doomed.’

Tesla thus has intentionally and rapidly deployed robots to kill, by taking money from people who were told it would make them safe, and yet pretends it has zero responsibility for being a fraud causing tragic mass harms to society.

Why would they ever think dumping huge numbers of killer robots into cities would be profitable? Because that’s exactly what they think they must do, as if in some kind of war production mode.

Tesla “future wars” CEO doesn’t understand engineering or wars. He’s simply repeating the mistakes of his “Technocracy” (fascist) family who tried to help run South African apartheid.

To be clear, Enron Musk is absolutely wrong in this analysis. My graduate degree in history from LSE, mainly about the cold war, also focused on how 20,000 irregular Black soldiers in WWII were able to rapidly rout over 200,000 white supremacist fascist troops. Literally the opposite of what he’s saying is what historians should tell you, like how we could tell you fantasy about Nazis being “modern” and “advanced” was literal horseshit — 75% of the army depended on actual horses.

Historian protip: “Mars Technocracy” is the same concept as the infamous Aryan Nation, a white supremacist enclave on earth predicted to be here in 88 years. The difference is the technocracy of white supremacists is supposed to be created for them by a robot army.

And on that note, about denying reality, the latest huge Tesla court settlement was hush money to prevent a grieving family from revealing the truth about FSD being a killer robot, the kind of exposure that would protect other families.

It’s like a car company has been using speculative investor money since 2012 to hire low or no talent engineers to make bridges or buildings expected to fall down, aircraft expected to crash, and social media expected to spread hate and violence.

Worse than Enron, this is a clear and present danger with hundreds of fatalities so far, how much longer can such a fraud be allowed to operate?

“De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da” and the CIA

Here are the lyrics from a song by The Police, as managed by the IRS (Miles Copeland III) alongside the FBI booking agency (Ian Copeland), and as played by Stewart Copeland — the third son of a CIA founding member.

Don’t think me unkind
Words are hard to find
They’re only checks I’ve left unsigned
From banks of chaos in my mind

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true

Poets, priests, and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
And no one’s jamming their transmission

At the peak of the band success in 1986, the three brothers’ father gave this interview.

It’s not unethical to give the press false information. We do have a kind of adversary relationship with the press. There’s nothing we should try to do to shut them up, but it is absolutely permissible to tell the press whatever is in the interests of the American people to have the press know or think.

…the CIA isn’t overthrowing enough anti-American governments or assassinating enough anti-American leaders, but I guess I’m getting old.

[…]

With modern communications being what they are, we’re supposed to be the best informed people in history, but we’re not. We’re the most informed, which is hardly the same thing.

The man who helped develop and apply the Allied disinformation tactics of WWII and called himself a terrorist ended the interview by unironically suggesting “you can make up your own mind”.

The three Copeland brothers who came from privilege and grew The Police to immense influence in the music industry were arguably a logical result of Miles Copeland.

Earlier in a 1974 interview (PDF), a year before his three sons conspired to run The Police and dominate pop music charts, he had said something similar.

First of all, [in terms of the CIA toppling foreign governments by using] dirty tricks, I don’t think [we are doing it] nearly enough under the present circumstances, given the kind of world we didn’t create, we just happen to be living in.

Just another industrial ugly morning, the factory belches filth into the sky, he walks unhindered through the picket lines today, and doesn’t think to wonder why…

Fake Airbag Sold on eBay Kills Young Mother in Crash

The U.S. Attorney’s Office, Western District of Tennessee recently published this press release.

…Mohammed Al-Abadi, 51, imported counterfeit motor vehicle airbag parts from China and assembled the parts to make counterfeit airbags. Al-Abadi then sold the fake airbags on eBay to unsuspecting automobile repair shops and individual customers for prices ranging from $100 to $725 each.

A 22 year old mother of two was just killed in Florida by one of these counterfeit eBay airbags.

In related news, Japanese Takata airbag explosion deaths have been a problem tracked since 2015 and apparently just climbed to 26 victims.

This death [in a 2003 vehicle that did not follow a recall] is the first one of a passenger airbag explosion and brings the total number of deaths in the United States linked to Takata airbag explosions to 26, the administration said.

In just one recent crash a victim’s family was awarded nearly $3 million after proving the airbag killed him.

Tocarious Johnson’s death was initially being investigated as a homicide after authorities believed he was shot. However, police said an autopsy showed the 20-year-old died from his injuries he sustained when the 2010 Dodge Charger he was driving left the roadway and crashed.

Beasley Allen and The Vance Law Firm represented Johnson’s family in securing the settlement. According to a news release, lawyers uncovered evidence that the driver’s side door airbag inflator “ruptured violently during the accident, much like a hand grenade, shooting shrapnel from the metal inflator” toward Johnson.

Notably, Stellantis has now ordered a new recall of nearly 70,000 Dodge Chargers to replace the airbags installed between July 2018 and May 2021, and included this line:

As of February 21, 2024, FCA US is not aware of any accidents or injuries potentially relating to this issue in all markets.

Relating to this issue? Tocarious Johnson’s June 2022 death.

More cases in court like this are expected as even American airbag companies like ARC in Tennessee are refusing to recall their product despite seven deaths.

In a May letter to ARC Automotive(opens in a new tab), U.S. regulators blamed “over pressurization” for the issue and said airbag inflators “when not defective” are “designed to save lives.”

“Air bag inflators that project metal fragments into vehicle occupants, rather than properly inflating the attached air bag, create an unreasonable risk of death and injury,” a the letter from the NHTSA asserted.

The company has so far refused to act, setting the stage for a potential legal battle.

Perhaps in a tragic way the Chinese counterfeits on eBay will force safety issues to be better handled by American airbag companies. If all these bags are potentially defective death traps, why pay higher prices for domestic dangers? ARC is destroying their own market by flagrantly ignoring safety, opening the door to competitive Chinese products that also can kill Americans… for less.
