Just received a visit from the FBI
7/30/2011 | John Galt - psuedoname

Posted on 07/30/2011 6:17:27 PM PDT by jongaltsr

A couple of hours ago receive a hard knock on the door. I answered the door and about 7 or 8 agents all flashing badges (claiming to be FBI and/or CIA) rushed me and pushed me against the far wall.

My dog attacked and they would have shot him had I not broken free for a second and covered him by laying him on the floor beneath me.

After things calmed down a bit and I received assurances that nothing would happen to him if I placed him in the bedroom and closed the door.

I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there. I had expressed my opinion of what I thought of the current President and the majority in congress and was therefore a potential threat to the government. After what seemed to be hours they came to the conclusion (I hope) that I was merely expressing my opinion and not a leader of a counter revolutionary army - as they saw it.

They searched my apartment for weapons and found 4 (which I have not fired in over a year or more) and they seized them for testing. My dog (Ranger) was not happy with the situation so I had to hold on to him during the search to keep him from being shot.

They also seized my computer and downloaded my entire files system. I suppose they also copied any files erased by normal erasure techniques. They returned the computer as "WAS" (as far as I can tell) but I after careful consideration the past few hours I have concluded that they are monitoring me closely.

I'm not even sure this message will make it through but what else can I do but try?

If (Big IF!) this does make it through, beware. They are watching and may make a visit to your residence and give your the same routine.

It really shook me up and I have trouble keeping my nerves steady and my thoughts straight as I write this message.

Once this gets out (IF THIS GETS OUT) I can pretty much expect their return but this time they probably won't be quite as considerate of myself and my dog who they will probably shoot on sight.

I have packed my truck with essentials but I suspect that there are those that are watching so I may not make it to one of my favorite mountain camping sites.

There I will not have any communications except when I get into town and use WIFI to make any contact.

Good luck and keep your heads down.

They have become serious about enforcing their new powers - and some of us might not make it.

I'll probably be #1 on their list.

Semper Fi and God Bless one and all.

Not yet, but they said they’re going to write it up. They’re keeping a treatment and progress record complete with photos and measurements of the wound, etc.

Sure sounds like they will be using your success story and they should.

This is truly an amazing story - the 10 yr thing only adds to it. That seems to be the kicker for those 'honey's' and that's where our 'Nothing is Impossible' God shows He's the Healer. Glad I was on this thread to hear about it. Thanks for sharing, Jim, and Thank You, Jesus, for the stripes You took upon Yourself, specifically, for our healing!! It IS Finished.

How can there be a default choice on state Flags, you either choose your flag or don’t have one. I took my Texas flag off because I was getting all these alerts to the ‘Texas state board’, and I didn’t want that. It didn’t used to do that and I haven’t checked lately to see if it still does.

I think he really got a visit from the feds, and he was probably rattled enough to account for the stupid description. Then later, after getting the zot from the mod, he started getting more paranoid, and ultimately he deleted his stuff, and what we see now is the default choice.

He’ll be back when he cools down. Lots of his posts are nutty as can be.

This is the most interesting thread I’ve ever followed on Freeper. It’s been up for a couple of hours now, and comments are still pouring in! I go away for a while, come back, and it’s still fun to read.

He (jongaltsr), sounds like an agent provocateur to me. New World Dictionary definition of “agent provocateur”: A person hired to join a political movement in order to incite its members to rebellion or illegal acts.

Also known in various regions of these United States as ... a rooty toot.

Your search skills are excellent. I was sad reading through that thread, so many old FReepers gone now. It reminded me of BCM, Battalion Chief Moran, who died in the Sept 11 attacks a few months earlier. Sigh.

You lost me when you say they seized your computer, then returned it to you, yet this all happened a couple of hours ago.

If they took your computer, they would have kept it. It takes more than a couple of hours to do a complete forensic analysis and I doubt they would seize your computer unless that was their intent.

Your sign up date is old, but this doesn’t quite smell right to me.

Could be legit, but I am thinking sleeper troll or hacked account.

Is this satire? It started to sound like fiction when you said they let you break from restraint to restrain your dog, rather than shooting both of you, if not having already shot the dog as they introduced themselves.

He made it to the bathroom. That’s where he was found. His wife said there was a popping sound. She said he was screaming and she asked if he needed 911. He said “Yes”. The phones were dead.

Yes it’s satire. A true American - FReeper - would have shot them all before they crossed the threshold and then let the dog clean up the trash.

Losing The Chief and BKO is unacceptable. Losing all of the victims of 9-11 is unacceptable. If this Nation continues on this path, I see no future for the children.

I seem to recall he died in the bathroom from smoke inhalation and that something may have been tossed in through a window.

"There was a guy — can’t remember who — who posted the HTML for the “banned or suspended” page on his home page. It was kinda confusing."

I remember the home page, but like you forgot who it was. But then half the time I don't recognize the guy in the mirror either. The guy made a really hostile post, so I checked the home page out. It all fit then.

I sure wish I could have a boring Saturday! I’ve been running since four AM, finally finished my shift at nine PM, came home and decided to play with the computer for a little while. And I have been coming back to this thread on and off all night. What’s wrong with me? Sometimes you’re just too tired to sleep, and your mind is too full of stuff.

I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there.

In the words of Dr. Evil, "Riiiiiiiiiiiight."

If they had enough to read you your rights about, then they had a lot more than opinions expressed on a public forum as a reason for the action. If they let you go with nothing further, then they never had enough to read you your rights about in the first place.
