America is supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave, and yet we see an increasingly nationalized police state. How did America, the Country that people from Communist/Socialist states fled to, become the Country that kills its citizens with no knock raids? Cato Has A Map Of These Raids And The Innocents The State Controlled Police Kill. There is no excuse for allowing ourselves to get safety at the cost of our freedoms. There is no excuse for turning a blind eye to each and every one of the states in the union becoming actual police states. I have written before that officer friendly no longer comes to your door in his dress shoes – he is not friendly, and he shows up wearing combat boots.
What the Indiana Supreme Court, and more recently, the Illinois Supreme Court, has done is codify ineptness on the part of their police departments and put their citizens in mortal danger, Un-American. What these Supreme Courts have done is allowed citizens to be murdered, such as in Tucson, AZ, where a man sleeping in his bed is shot 60 times protecting his family from an “intruder.” If You Are Not Angry, You Are Not Paying Attention.
A Tucson, Ariz., SWAT team defends shooting an Iraq War veteran 60 times during a drug raid, although it declines to say whether it found any drugs in the house, and has had to retract its claim that the veteran shot first.
And the Pima County sheriff scolded the media for â€œquestioning the legalityâ€ of the shooting.
Jose Guerena, 26, died the morning of May 5. He was asleep in his Tucson home after working a night shift at the Asarco copper mine when his wife, Vanessa, saw the armed SWAT team outside her youngest sonâ€™s bedroom window.
â€œShe saw a man pointing at her with a gun,â€ said Reyna Ortiz, 29, a relative who is caring for Vanessa and her children. Ortiz said Vanessa Guerena yelled, â€œDonâ€™t shoot! I have a baby!â€
Vanessa Guerena thought the gunman might be part of a home invasion â€” especially because two members of her sister-in-lawâ€™s family, Cynthia and Manny Orozco, were killed last year in their Tucson home, her lawyer, Chris Scileppi, said. She shouted for her husband in the next room, and he woke up and told his wife to hide in the closet with the child, Joel, 4.
When your home is not the last refuge from an assault by the police state, then this Country has become no better then Communist China.
