Police State Raids Family’s Home: “The Fight Has Officially Been Brought To My Front Door”
SHTF Plan ^ | March 20th, 2013 | Mac Slavo

Posted on 03/20/2013 12:01:12 PM PDT by Mozilla

When certified firearms instructor Shawn Moore posted a photo of his 11 year-old son on Facebook the last thing he expected was a SWAT style raid on his home. The picture showed his son, a licensed hunter, holding his new birthday gift, a .22 caliber rifle.

While Moore’s son proudly displaying his semi-automatic personal defense rifle was completely legal, an anonymous tipster contacted New Jersey’s Department of Children and Family Services and declared that the Moore family was neglecting and abusing their child, an unfounded accusation that led to the mobilization of local police who were apparently not at all concerned with the unconstitutionality of their actions which violated numerous protections of the Moore family including their right to bear arms, their right to be secure in their homes, their right to speak freely, and their right to be considered innocent until proven guilty.

Of critical importance is that the police who raided the Moore home never even saw the photo.

“It was all hear say. Just a phone call saying someone saw a pic of a child holding a gun,” reports Moore.

Shawn Moore recounted the incident at the Delaware Open Carry forums:

The fight has officially been brought to my front door.

Last night I was out with a buddy of mine. I got a text from my wife that the cops and DYFS [Division of Youth and Family Services] are at the house and they wanna check out my guns and needed me to open my safe.

I’m instantly on my way. I get in contact with [attorney] Evan Nappen on the way. I explain the situation.

I walk in my house and hand the phone to the first cop I see. Then direct all of them outside. DYFS got a call because of a pic of my son holding a gun.

They wanted to look around and check all my guns out, make sure they were all registered.

Obviously that didn’t go well because I refused.

I had Nappen on speaker phone the entire time so they had to deal with both of us. They kept trying to pressure me to open my safe. They had no warrant, no charges, nothing.

I didn’t budge.

I was told I was being “unreasonable” and that I was acting suspicious because I wouldn’t open my safe. Told me they were gonna get a search warrant. Told em go ahead.

Nappen (my lawyer) asked me for the DYFS workers name. She wouldn’t give it. I asked for credentials and she wouldn’t show them. I tried to take a pic of her and she turned around real fast and walked away.

After a while of them threatening to take my kids, get warrants and intimidation they left. Empty handed and seeing nothing.

People it can happen that fast.

Now, let’s find out 1) exactly what that report said, 2) if it was a lie in any way, expose the source. (The source should NOT be protected should he/she have obviously exaggerated the situation.)

Then, hound that source.

Hound them relentlessly.

Hound them until they commit Obamacide.

And then hound their graves.

Sooner or later, folks, we’re going to have to stand up to this. Let’s use slimy lib tactics. Make them suffer.

Being nice won’t cut it. These slime are playing for keeps, and we’re doing ourselves an injustice if we do not make sure that there are penalties for violating our constitution.

Ask your attorney about pressing a law suit on the cops, DYFS and who ever else. Don’t let them get away with this.

With a lawless president in the White House, word is out that the rule of law in the United States is finished, and all federal employees feel free to do whatever the h*ll they choose.

The New Marxist State is on the way and the only guiding principles are those laid out by Vladimir Lenin a hundred years ago.

Likely you can’t find out who submitted the report,
but you CAN find out who ordered the raid,
and who made the decision that they had to enter the home and look in the gun safe.

Those people need to be sued for violation of civil rights under color of law.

That’s a cute pic. Cops should be happy he’s holding it properly.

As for the anonymous tipster: Hope you’re happy, Miss. (I’m assuming you’re a liberal woman, although you might also be a liberal girly man, in which case, Miss could still apply.) You know, someday, people will wise up, find out who you are by your I.P. address, and take you outside for a sound talking to (and a beating, if you’re a man), you miserable informant.

Sounds like a law suit is in order against the Dept . of Family Sevices, that will allow discovery of the anonymous tipster, who deserves to be joined as a defendant for giving false information to the dept.

This is unnecessary also IMO:

“his semi-automatic personal defense rifle”

Not sure children have certain constitutional rights regardless. [although if someone can show me I’m wrong about that...]

Actually, that IS the liberal revulsion when it comes to firearms.

How dare you think that you would possibly resist what we think is best for you?

Shawn Moore handled it well. He obviously was "prepared" to confront the Gov't apparatchiks with his legal rights. How many of us have a lawyer, ready to talk about such issues, on speed dial?

I was involved in a corporate case where Customs and DHS seized some of my colleagues computers, cell phones, etc... upon returning to the USA from a business trip.

There was absolutely nothing incriminating on them, but regardless, the high-priced corporate attorney (a former DOJ prosecutor) told us: "you will get all kinds of pressure, you have nothing to hide, and you want to be a 'good citizen.' NO! you have no idea what asinine things these people are up to. TELL THEM TO GET A WARRANT! If it is really so important, make them go before a judge and explain why. In a fishing-expedition like this, I guarantee you they won't even bother to try."

Still the call to authorities by some punk was unwarranted and the police wouldn’t leave easily. It took the lawyer on the phone and for the father to stand up to them for them to leave. They wanted to seize the guns. Threatened to take the child away. I wouldn’t say that was a friendly visit.

Since we’re allowed to confront our accusers this guy should have his lawyer file a petition or something to find out who it was.

there is no "facing your accuser" anymore...

any disgruntled person can cause havoc and doesn't even need to leave their name....

I think its entirely wrong and illegal...

I’ll bet those same “officials” wouldn’t venture into knee grow land in the ‘hoods of Camden or Newark to harass gangbangers who post pics of THEIR kids with guns. No... they come to quiet, safe suburbs to persecute and threaten quiet, safe targets.

Yet one more reason to NOT be on FaceBook

Also, "anonymous tipsters" should not be used by government agencies as an excuse to show up with armed police. I'd like to see the "tipster"s anonymity removed in cases where the tip turns out to be completely bogus.

They were hoping for the quiet, safe arrest of some middle-class suburban dad who had a magazine or ammo which violated one of the many New Jersey bed-wetting laws and regulations.

Exactly what is it going to take before we realize we are well beyond the point in time for a Thomas Jefferson moment? We refuse to draw a line in the sand and government knows this fully well and is taking advantage of our weakness.

Thug mentality of government knows no limits unless they are removed from office. Seeing as the election process is so rigged and controlled by the CPUSA ( disguised as the democrat party) I submit the government has so exceeded its authority as to render it no better than all the other thug-ocracys in history.

We don’t have to take up arms to start resisting.

Just start resisting. Know your rights and insist on them.

“No, you may not see my identification. Am I under arrest or am I free to go?”

“No, you may not enter my house without a warrant, and I will not answer any of your questions without a lawyer, and I will not turn off the video recording device.”

I don’t think this is a homeschool family, but it is certainly along the lines of what has happened to homeschoolers.

So a ping for homeschoolers, just FYI on how to handle out of control social services and law enforcement.

The left has become a dictatorial totalitarian regime. And even if Obama does not run for a third term or end elections as we know it, all he needs to do is declare martial law and have his cronies like Biden or Hillary succeed him. Or Just keep on rigging elections so that his people win. The left cheats to win each and every election.
