He was lucky he is alive . The last guy the SWAT team paid a visit to was not so lucky.
No, one shouldn't; but since these knuckleheads frequently can't seem to read addresses correctly, you could be Mother Theresa and still have your door kicked in... and your dog shot... and your fish stomped.
Correct, the GOP could have stopped it....but who knows, maybe they initiated it. I’ll have to dig into it more, to see the circumstances....but I’m afraid I will be very disappointed. Also, my search gave me a hit on similar powers being given to the Dept of Energy...I didn’t even want to read the details, though.
I was under the impression that the FBI was the agency that investigated Feredal crimes. But, I suppose, like everything else when we operated under the Constitutional restraints, that was then, this is now. And the sheep said....
Where are our usual bootlickers today - usually they fawn all over the out of control police. maybe this is too much even for cop lovers?
>> Where are our usual bootlickers today
More importantly, where are the self-proclaimed Constitutionalists?
I agree, who is scrutinizing these agencies and their paramilitary style collections operations?
For a student loan? Really?
I recall an article from some time past stating the Department of Education purchased several shotguns.... I now see why.
I think they have radically deviated from any semblance of their proper role.
That was my first impression. That, and a firmer conviction that the Federal Government is officially out of control.
The days of "Officer Friendly" seem to be long gone.
Uh, no. The guy was taking care of his kids, and probably had a job. He wasn't one of "Holder's people."
Come to think of it, all of mine fell overboard too......but that was a long time ago.
Lawyers, juries, and groups like Oath Keepers are going top get the jack boot crowd under control. After all, they are a resource awaiting harvest.
In all seriousness - what practical limits on behaviour do you see the government - central government (they have ceased to be federal) - see on their power here?
I suppose they could have taken him to a secret prison - but really - what would they gain there? The citizen wasn’t valuable for information.
How demented does a person need to be to see any relation at al lbetween the Constitutions intent - and this action?
Looks like it was`nt about an unpaid loan, after all. And it does`nt look like it was a SWAT team. But by this time tommorrow there will be 10 more posts that a SWAT team roughed up this guy and his kids over an unpaid loan.
I have to wonder about the mentality of those officers.
In another place and time, theyd have been pushing people into cattle cars. Just following orders you know.
/// sadly, a good point. i admire Oathkeepers, and others who serve our country. but i fear if it comes to it, they might be outnumbered by the type you speak of.
AH, look, it appears as if the media was lying and you bought it.
>> In all seriousness - what practical limits on behaviour do you see the government ...
The details of this story seem to be changing, but a salient point nonetheless.
The “details” change - but the core issue remains.
These “officers” or whatever they are - need to be fired - for cause. Even if that cause is wasting time, and launching an assault when the target isn’t there.
What happens to YOU when you waste 20 man days on a boondoggle? And that doesn’t include the assault and idiocy.
It appears they found NOTHING?
