Armed Agents Swoop Down on Sellers of Raw Milk and Cheese
Health Report.com ^ | 8/4/11 | BHR

Posted on 08/04/2011 11:03:33 AM PDT by Nachum

Multiple sources have confirmed the fact that all three individuals arrested – James Stewart, Victoria Bloch and Sharon Palmer – are being charged with ‘conspiracy’ related to the sell of unpasteurized raw milk products.

This reportedly includes sections of the California Penal Code Section 182a. Additional charges may also be pending, including a charge of ‘mislabeling cheese’ for Sharon Palmer, was arrested during a raid of Healthy Family Farms. As video of the raid on Rawesome Foods (also raided in 2010) demonstrates, Feds not only seized cash and raw milk supplies (much of which was also dumped out) but also mangos and other fresh, organic produce.

Activists have planned a protest tomorrow outside the L.A. County Courthouse to demand the release of the raw food retailers, each held on bonds reportedly exceeding $120,000.

If you talk to your friends about anything the government doesn't like and one of them takes any action based on that conversation, it's a conspiracy.

I’ll bet the evidence room is going to smelling rather ripe by the time the case comes to court.

This is so ridiculous. I have been drinking raw milk since I was a kid - I never had a problem with "lactose intolerance" or disease. As long as you know the dairy cows are well taken care of, the milk is actually healthier than the pasteurized stuff.

This sounds so absolutely fascist in every way. $120,000? Arrest the pedophiles and the murderers first, along with the Fannie and Freddie crooks!

Easier and a lot safer than going after real enemies of our country. SWAT teams these days seem to be going after the “lighter” targets. Somebody plots to bomb and kill Americans, treat them with kid gloves. Don’t want to offend them. Someone sells raw milk. Call in the heavy firepower.

Funny that the very same Leftist pols will be begging for that raw milk after the country goes ‘Road Warrior’ thanks to their brilliant governance.

And by ‘funny’ I mean freaking pathetic.

BASE: "Sniper one! Sniper one! Do you see the raw milk?"

SNIPER ONE: "Negative! I see one container exposed though! It is a complete exposure! I have a photo! Photo confirmation!"

BASE: "Sniper two! Do you see raw milk!

SNIPER TWO: "I have raw milk in my scope! I can verify raw milk! Oh my! Oh my! I have verified second container exposure!

BASE: "We have raw milk verification! We have dual container exposure! I repeat! We have dual container exposure! I now have satellite and helo verification from overhead! Deadly force is authorized! All snipers may take their shot!"

(multiple shots are heard)

BASE: "Head shot! Kill shot! Raw milk flow has been interdicted! Great work! Back to base!"

(a phone rings)

911 OPERATOR: "911, Hope and change, we are here to serve you, may I help you?"

WOMAN (frantic): "I need help! My daughter was breast feeding her son on the front porch! I heard a loud noise! I think she has been shot!

I prefer pasteurized milk and milk by products ~ and, as far as lactose tolerance/intolerance is concerned, that's a genetic problem. There are well over 1 billion people who simply aren't designed to produce lactase (the enzyme that digests lactose) after they become adults.

Then some of us are pretty much immune to ALL the major pathogens that use milk as a vector for disease ~ believe it or not I have some relatives who were/are "carriers" ~ who are simply not bothered by the pathogens, nor do they show any symptoms.

You wouldn't like them hanging around your dairy Fur Shur ~ but there they are ~ and could be cleaning stuff up in the barn where your favorite cows live!

Bwahahahahahahahaha!

Think of your fresh drink of raw milk like it's FUGU!

And one last thing, there's some Typhoid out there that's resistant to all known antibiotics.

Monsanto and FDA are nearly interchangeable. The CDC was involved in these raids, as well.

About a month back they also did this to AMISH people doing the same thing —I’m not making that up; they were Amish.

Think of how much MORE ridiculous it is that in LOS ANGELES the cops have time for this.

How many illegals are in LA? 600,000? A million? Probably more. And how many gangs?

I think that NO milk in Japan is pasteurized.

I remember the report. The media tried to paint them as some sort of criminal cartel conspiring to ship tainted products across state lines.

Cue spooky music.

AMISH APOCALYPSE!

Freakin' morons doing exactly what agribusiness tells them. I hear Soros is in that business, now...

A strong people do not need a strong government. We have now regressed to the point where individual common moral sense is no longer intact, therefore the government must try and impose common sense, such as peeing on cheese, in a myriad of daily life moments. We are no longer free.

I grew up drinking milk straight from the cow and somehow managed to survive. Also survived lawn darts and clackers.

It’s too bad we can’t “mark” these vehement lefties prior to the crash...

Then, if we sell anything to them at all, they have to at the very minimum be humiliated for causing the problem before being sold anything.

I am the oldest of 6 kids from a dirt poor family.

We were brought up on whole milk. We even made our own butter-—it was to die for. We grew our own chemical free gardens too. We had free roam chickens and they didn’t kill us ether.

I made it to 62 and somehow the 1950’s hasn’t killed me yet.

Will it soon be illegal for moms to feed their babies raw breast milk? Will SWAT come and get them?

How oh how did the human species survive for so long??

Bottom line is that any adult american should be free to choose raw milk or pasteurized milk and organic whatevers. None of the stinking govt’s business.

The raid has everything to do with an unlicensed, thus an unregulated, seller/producer of foods. It's about the power of government to protect consumers from dangerous foods. Raw milk requires lots more steps to be certified safe for consumption so woe to those impatient with regulations.

Are they going to add charges for "cutting the cheese" as well?
