I say we are in a situation that is close to a being an occupied country.
The Congress of the USA and many state Congresses have given SO MUCH POWER
to the police of the states, the FBI, the NSA and other agencies that THIS
SHIT CAN HAPPEN.
This appears to be a NORMAL family who had their door kicked in. Look at the
police in the photo...helmets. bulletproof vests. arm and shin guards. And
they NEEDED TO SHOOT DEAD the family's TWO DOGS? Oh, under the LAW it seems
they can do ANYTHING when someone is accused.
The man had a MISDEMEANOR AMOUNT of pot in his house. ANOTHER LAW PUT ON
AMERICAN...it is a non violent victimless crime. So when they could not nail
the man for whatever they wanted...THEY CHARGED HIM AND HIS WIFE WITH CHILD
Did THOSE KIDS look endangered to YOU? How many parents drink a fifth a day
and no one blinks?
SPEAKING OF OUR RIGHTS...Lieberman is pushing HARD to get a bill passed that
says IF YOU ARE ACCUSED...not tried and convicted...ACCUSED of terrorism...a
WAY VAGUE TERM....you WILL LOSE YOUR CITIZENSHIP AND ALL YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL
This shit is OUT OF CONTROL. I feel endangered by the police of MY OWN
COUNTRY, NOT BY ANY "TERRORISTS".

> Video of SWAT Raid on Missouri
I wrote the following about a drug raid in Missouri:
SWAT team breaks into
fires seven rounds at familyâ€™s pit bull and corgi (?!) as a seven-year-old
They found a â€œsmall amountâ€ of marijuana, enough for a misdemeanor charge.
The parents were then charged with child endangerment.
So smoking pot = â€œchild endangerment.â€ Storming a home with guns, then
firing bullets into the family pets as a child looks on = necessary police
procedures to ensure everyoneâ€™s safety.
Just so weâ€™re clear.
Now thereâ€™s video, which you can watch below. Itâ€™s horrifying, but Iâ€™d
you to watch it, and to send it to the drug warriors in your life. This is
the blunt-end result of all the war imagery and militaristic rhetoric
politicians have been spewing for the last 30 yearsâ€”cops dressed like
soldiers, barreling through the front door middle of the night, slaughtering
the family pets, filling the house with bullets in the presence of children,
then having the audacity to charge the parents with endangering their own
kid. There are 100-150 of these
America, the vast, vast majority like this one, to serve a
warrant for a consensual crime.
