Booby trap probe leads to Calif. raids, arrests
AP ^ | 4-20-2010 | By THOMAS WATKINS (AP)

Posted on 04/20/2010 6:50:20 PM PDT by granite

LOS ANGELES — The Southern California homes of dozens of white supremacists were raided Tuesday as part of a probe into a string of potentially deadly booby trap attacks targeting police officers, authorities said.

Federal and local officers converged on 35 homes and took 16 people into custody in Riverside County for a variety of crimes, including weapons, narcotics and parole violations, Hemet police Capt. Dave Brown said.

None of the arrests were directly related to the booby trap attacks that have plagued the small Hemet Police Department since New Year's Eve.

"But we hope some (arrests) will lead us to our suspects," Brown said.

District Attorney Rod Pacheco said everyone arrested was connected to white supremacist groups.

"They are upset with our aggressive posture against all gangs," Pacheco said. "White supremacist gangs have been very violent, especially toward law enforcement."

Hemet police have been targeted at least three times. In one case, a ballistic device strapped to a fence at the gang unit compound sent a bullet within inches of an officer's face.

Historically a rural retirement community, Hemet saw rapid growth during the real estate boom but has since been ravaged by the foreclosure crisis.

White Supremacists? What does that mean? That this isn’t a Mexican illegal drug gang?

That's what I said.

Maybe just another case of "round up the usual suspects."

Kind of funny; using gestapo techniques on Nazis.

Possibly an attempt to show that the “right” is a threat to security. Let’s see how this one plays out.

I have no love for rightwing extremists, esp. the Nazis, neo-Nazis or other anti-semitic, anti-black, anti (legal) immigrant groups. However, Napolitano is just looking for someone on the far right to use as a posterboy to cover up for her total failure to protect America from terrorists, illegal immigrants/criminals, drug dealers, etc.

Yep, even racists have the same constitutional protections as every other citizen.

This really sounds like it was for show more than anything. Wonder how they’ll play it if the attacks continue?

["White supremacist gangs have been very violent, especially toward law enforcement."]

But Mexican and South American gangs have permission to ravage the countryside with impunity, because they are a "proteced class".

Thanks. I worked in Greenwich Village for a number of years, and we used to see skinheads down there. I suppose they were racists, but their chief interest seemed to be drugs and crime. They certainly weren’t conservatives in any normal sense of the word.

They were a drug-addicted product of the 60s. But instead of growing their hair long and smoking pot or sniffing coke, they shaved it short and smoked pot and sniffed coke.

I know my department gets the Southern Poverty Law Center magazine, addressed to the Chief c/o the department. I see it laying around and wonder if they are sending it out to all agencies, or if my Chief signed up for it personally. Almost every cover is stuff like “Rage from the the Right”...never stuff about jihadis, illegals, etc.

For non-LEO FReepers, Chiefs can sometimes be the last to get a clue about current issues, and these organizations know it and pump them with PC stupidity so they can filter it downwards.

Here is what they are doing, I sense. This is their tactic.

They are moving, Janet Reno-style in to the main target (all of us/Free Republic/Tea Parties/Conservative movements/Free Speech/Republican Party) from the extreme outer fringes (all the while ignoring radical islamic fundamentalists in mosques across the lands planning attack and jihad)--those extreme freakos who bear little relationship to patriots or the Tea Party, but then moving closer and closer to the Sensible Silenty Majority Center, like peeling skin on an onion; the Sensible Silent Majority Center, with is conservative/moderate, which 80% of the American People occupy. They may start with these extreme shills as they are easy targets as part of their incremental tactic, and then gradually shave towards those who merely own guns but dont have a threatening manner, then they will come after the talk show hosts. Soon, 80% of the American People will have to be thrown into jail or camps. It is an outer fringe to sensible innner core direction they are taking. These are no accidents. Connect the dots. Connect what CNN says. Connected with Bill Clinton says. Connect what and where and why and how there are raids. Very clever. They have some good people on staff working for them heralding from K Street or Madison Avenue.

There is enough FEMA CAmp capacity to incarcerate a few million altogether.They would have to incarcerate about 3.5 million to break the patriot resistance to a totalitarian society.

And what about the other 87 million gun owners?

What about the rest of the 240 million?

What happened to them locking up 80% of the U.S.?

In other words...is it dawning on you yet that such a thing would be impossible?

“Hemet police arrest 23 people for recent attacks”

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010.
Issue 16, Volume 14.

SNIPPET: “HEMET - Hemet police arrested 23 people today while serving search warrants in at least 35 locations countywide as part of an investigation into recent attacks on police and city facilities.

About 200 law enforcement personnel from federal, state, county and city agencies took part in today’s raid, which also yielded 16 firearms, along with other evidence and contraband, Hemet police Capt. Dave Brown said.

As of this afternoon, no charges have been filed in connection with the ongoing investigation into a series of attacks on city and police facilities.

The operation came about a week after the Hemet City Council gave the city manager emergency purchasing power to outfit police with whatever equipment, resources and personnel were deemed necessary to combat the attacks that have put police on the defensive.”

By Jose Arballo Jr., SWRNN
Tuesday, April 20, 2010

SNIPPET: “As of 4 p.m., Brown said 23 people were arrested or detained during the sweep of 35 different locations, but none of the allegations against those arrested involve the series of attacks that started Dec. 31, Brown said in a news release. The charges involved parole violations, narcotic offenses and weapons allegations, Brown said.”

SNIPPET: “Brown said he wanted remind the public there is a $200,000 reward being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these crimes.

Police have created confidential tip lines where the public can give information related to these crimes – the number is 951-765-3897, and the email address is tips@cityofhemet.org.

I found a booby trap. Call them cops. I'm all for arresting the culprits but there is something wrong when you pick up some "White Supremacists" say they are not responsible for the a crime which you are linking them to and hoping that their arrest will lead to the arrest of the criminals who set the traps? It has the same smell as the recent "christian" militia raid saying they planned to kill police officers. There just seems to be a pattern that doesn't fit and seems awful convenient.

Well lets see. 6 million jews were killed by Hitler. That was supposed to be inpossible too but it happened, and now the technology to do that kind of thing is much more advanced.

Of course 6 million gone in the holocaust was probably a lie, just a fabrication, not possible.

You have no idea whats possible. You wouldn't know it if it jumped up from the good earth and bit you in the a$$.

OFF THREAD TOPIC (I will be posting this as it’s own thread.)

Note: The following text is a quote:

Pilot, passenger in plane loaded with cocaine sentenced for drug trafficking

WICHITA, Kan. - The pilot and a passenger of an airplane carrying more than 114 pounds of cocaine when it landed at a Kansas airport were sentenced Monday in federal court for drug trafficking. The sentence resulted from an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The pilot, Dean Bryan Moya, 40, of Hemet, Calif., was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison. The passenger, Richard Allen Vickery, 31, of Hemet, Calif., was sentenced to 72 months. Both men pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the distribution of cocaine.

According to court documents, Moya was piloting a Cessna 210 aircraft that landed on Oct. 22 at the airport in Liberal, Kan. Moya had picked up Vickery and the cocaine in California and was taking the drugs to Ohio for distribution. In his plea, Vickery admitted he was on board to shepherd the cocaine to Ohio for distribution.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air Marine Operations Center (AMOC) had tracked the aircraft as it flew from northern New Mexico. AMOC notified the Liberal Police Department that Moya was piloting the aircraft even though his medical certificate had been revoked due to drug use. At the airport a specially trained dog alerted investigators to the presence of narcotics. Investigators executed a search warrant and discovered more than 100 pounds of cocaine in two large suitcases inside the plane. Moya and Vickery were subsequently arrested at the Liberal Inn Motel in Liberal, Kan.

The following agencies assisted ICE in the investigation: the Liberal Police Department, the Beaver County Sheriff’s Department, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, and the Seward County Sheriff’s Department.

“Cocaine traffickers destroy lives and ruin communities,” said Gilbert Trill, assistant special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Kansas City. “These prison sentences demonstrate that even the quiet communities in Kansas can be directly impacted by the illicit narcotics trade. ICE and our law enforcement partners are determined to bring down these criminal organizations that pose a threat to public safety.”

Seems like it might be time to put together a mighty big militia. These parasites feel they can pick people off at the fringes but what would be their reaction to a great big, bad-ass militia?

Police Chiefs testifying in Sacramento against the open-carry of unloaded guns in California: WTF? Everyone of these bastards should be stripped of their badges, fired, and sent home without a pension for actions against the Constitution and any oath they swore to uphold.

I have no sympathy for racial supremacists of any kind, but I have to ask: Are these "white supremacists" so supreme that they feel that, for example, white illegal aliens shouldn't have to follow the laws of the land and deserve special treatment? Are they so supreme that they would ask the President to block a state law, in Arizona for example, that cracked down on their illegal white brothers?

Are they THAT supreme?

“23 Arrested in Booby-Trap Attacks on Hemet Police”
KTLA News
10:14 PM PDT, April 20, 2010

HEMET —

SNIPPET: “Capt. Brown said some of the 23 people arrested have gang affiliations, but he declined to say whether they were involved with street gangs, prison gangs, motorcycle gangs or white supremacist gangs.

A law enforcement source familiar with the investigation said task force members believe the attacks — including a series of booby trapping incidents and torching of city vehicles — appear to have been perpetrated by a white supremacist gang.

Last month, authorities arrested 33 members of the Vagos motorcycle gang, which Riverside County District Attorney Rod Pacheco called “an extreme threat to law enforcement.” But an attorney for Vagos and some of its members said Tuesday that none of the people arrested in the raids were members of the Vagos motorcycle gang.”

SNIPPET: “Police are also offering a $200,000 reward for information leading to an arrest or conviction in these attacks.

You can call the Hemet Police Department tip line at (951) 765-3897.”

The Constitution calls the shots, we're the last backstop to prevent it's total perversion. The states haven't challenged these scum over rights that belong to them via the 10th ammendment. And the powers not delegated to the fed are many indeed.

Governors and state legislatures have let the people down. They've aquiesced to the central power in Washington, D.C. and the money they dole out, the way drug addicts would line up for a hit.

Popularly elected senators instead of selected senators has a lot to do with it. Popularity has nothing to do with a particular state's interest and everything to do with agenda driven interests.

The courts have played fast and loose with state's rights and some wonder why there are people who want to be a part of the Tea Party?

The fed knows no bounds, the states are balls-less and that means it's up to the people to assert their rights- in the face of derision and intimidation by those whose interests are threatened. Like Bill Clinton.

The forces against liberty have blown through the courts, knocked the states to their knees, and have us, the people, as the last thing standing in their way. It's no surprise they're going after all us "McVeighs" 'cause they've already got a captive audience with about half the country who produce nothing and are happy with a hand-out. Their kind of people, don't you know?

That's when you know you're screwed; when you look around and realize, you're screwed. The Tea Party offers hope and couldn't have come at a better time. November can't come too soon, either. It'll all get fixed when the people stand firm and hit the ball back at them. Ever hit a line-drive back at a pitcher? Surprise! Well, Obama's on the mound. 'Nuff said.

Shut down the power, turn off the gas, block the major highway interchanges, stop rail traffic. Wait a week, two at the most. Round them up as they come to you, send out patrols to pick up the stragglers on foot.

Your turn to think. The people we would be dealing with are not hampered by human decency, nor rules of engagement as our military was. They will not care how many are killed--their goals involve eliminating dissent, not nation building.

Communist regimes and their totalitarian fellow travellers do not care how many they kill in the process, nor what means they use to do it.

Just wait for the snowstorm, and shut it down. Toss out the stiffs before spring... and march the rest to the camps.

You watch too much TV bud....or not enough...

If it was so easy...why didnt they do it to LA during the riots??

Oh...because you cant simply shut off a city by flipping a switch...

Nope...they might be able to simply kill everyone...but they wont be able to take and hold squat.

“there is a rifle behind every blade of grass”

The quote still holds bud.

I checked out www.rense.com, the main page at Candor7's link in reply #23. Found this headline, an indicator of the reliability of the site:

"All The Proof Needed - Israel Did 9-11"

"Trutherville". Never been there.

I live in a part of the country where temperatures reach -30 every winter, not counting wind chill. How to shut down the power? Ask New York. Ask Bosnia. It isn't as difficult to shut down a region as you seem to think, if it can be done by accident, it can be done on purpose.

WHO is going to be able to DO that?

Haven't been keeping up with Executive Orders, have you?

80,000 homeland security troops?

"A civillian security force, as well armed and funded as the US Army...." (That crazy, trutherville kook in the White House said that, not me).

What do you think a couple hundred pound desk can do to a hummer from 20 or 30 stories up?

Dunno. I think there is one 20+ story building in my state, and like many other states, there are vast numbers of communities similarly unendowed. It'll take some doing to get all those Hummers to wait in line, not to mention haul all the desks up there...

You are in an urban environment, judging from your comments, and likely in a more temperate one as well. People can (and do) freeze to death here.

A tremendous amount of America only has a few days supplies on hand, stores and warehouses in major urban areas a month at most, and the interruption of truck traffic along major traffic corridors, which can be done with as few as a dozen roadblocks can cut off a whole state. How much news have you heard out of say, South Dakota this week? How do you know it is not a complete fabrication? (Rhetorical questions only, I'm trying to make a point.)

Now do I think this will happen? No, not really. But I'm not one to ignore the possibility, especially with this government. Who would have thought they would do what they have done in the last year, including mounting a deficit in excess of any and all deficits in the history of the country?

Not to mention taking over auto manufacturers, banks, and the health care industry. Outrageous plans have a better chance of succeeding, apparently, because people are called 'kooks' and other cutesey names for even suggesting the thought. But 'outrageous' seems to be a hallmark of this adminsitration.

Just for fun: And how are you going to hold street corners in a city of HIGHRISES where tons of shit can rain down on you unless you take EVERY BUILDING AND HOLD IT.

Think tactically, now, the objective isn't to take and hold the city, but subdue it. So, the short answer is: You don't. You don't hold anything but the people in and the supplies out.

It is an old tactic, known as a 'siege'.

A few million people will eat themselves out of house and home in less than a fortnight. In a month, the pets will be gone, and some of the humans, too.

Nope...they might be able to simply kill everyone...but they wont be able to take and hold squat.

They won't have to.

“there is a rifle behind every blade of grass”

Yep. Where there is grass, that is. Greetings from the shortgrass prairie!
