Who is this man?

He was identified by Dana Loesch (as the person who called the SWAT team on the Tea Party Demonstrators at Quincy, Illinois.

Thanks to penelopesire for posting the picture on Free Republic.

With all due respect, a private citizen, assuming that’s what he is, cannot “call out the SWAT Team.”

He can call the cops or somebody else in government, but the government peeps make the decision who to send.

Doesn’t it require a LEO of some rank, or maybe the governor or mayor to call in the (almost always wholly unnecessary) SWAT team?

Doug Edelman is the one who said that this unidentified man ordered the SWAT team into action. I am trying to find out the identity of the man in the picture.

He could be a Secret Service guy. Look at the button on his lapel, and there was another photo of him standing next to SWAT police.

Putting in a photo is easy:

For yours, it looks like this:

(The <P> starts a new paragraph for anything following the photo)

I haven’t followed the granny/swat story at all - don’t even know where it happened - but some of us are always ready for a good scavenger hunt.

More of a closeup:

Looks like Secret Service to me. Note the earpiece and cord coming from his ear.

The SWAT team were only there for 15 minutes. I guess he viewed the situation and decided the grannies were getting out of hand. Lethal weapons like knitting needles in their purses perhaps...

“Looks like Secret Service to me.”

If so, next to the Kennedy assassination and the Reagan shooting, the Secret Service’s darkest day.

Civvies + ear piece + bullet proof vest under shirt = Secret Service.

Sorry, I misread this thread. I thought someone was trying to say his name was Dana Loesch.

He should be embarrassed by this...they already had snipers on the roof and other cops around. So why the SWAT team. I’ve seen many protests in NYC, many cops around, but rarely dressed in riot gear.

Identified "by" Dana Loesch as the person who called out SWAT. Not identified "as" Dana Loesch.

Was the SWAT team called to protect AGAINST the Tea Partiers or FOR their protection? Everything might not be as it seems.

How can you tell he is wearing a bulletproof vest under his shirt?

GoCards is still correct. Doug Edelman has a conservative page. It may be he wanted the Tea Party to be protected from a group, not that he wanted anyone protected from the Tea Party

Accounts said that this guy ordered the SWAT team in to take the protesters off the street and out of sight, while Obama was in the auditaurium across the street. I wasn’t there.

Also, they marched into the Tea Party demonstration in formation and then spread out.

Yes you could here them 1 2 3 4 speak. Very bizarre and embarrassing.

Im surprised Fox and Friends didnt have this shown on their show.

Notice the bulge, on his right side from just below his armpit.

Maybe he has a 1860’s, bound Colliers Weekly tucked away. Or an Uzi.

The man in the picture is not Doug Edelman or Dana Loesch - the man in the picture was identified by these two folks as the man who called SWAT on the TEA Partiers.

The way the shirt folds in just above the belt buckle. Either that or he has a square stomach.

Look at the pics and see which way they were facing.

That is all you need to know.

Also, notice his right hand. It looks as though he is concealing a microphone in his sleeve. I could be wrong about this though.

The Secret Service obviously takes the job of protecting the president seriously but first with the Clintons and now with Obama, it seems they see themselves as his personal goon squad.

Maybe a Praetorian Guard too.

Having a Praetorian Guard really helped the Roman empoers Nero, Septimus Severus, etc.).
