Homeland Security’s Heavily Armed East Williamsburg Raid ‘Terrorized And Confused’ Residents

 

 

 

” A number of East Williamsburg and Bushwick residents were surprised by a combined federal and NYPD raid on Devoe Street early Sunday morning. Some were disturbed by a loud, low-flying helicopter, while others were simply stopped from going home because the street was blocked off.

  Witnesses spotted a big Department of Homeland Security truck as well as DHS agents toting machine guns as they raided 221 Devoe Street. The NYPD was also involved, and one officer told a resident that the bust turned up “kilos of heroin.” (Apparently the drugs may have been from out of the country, hence DHS.)

  A resident in a neighboring building told us that he and his partner “were utterly confused and frankly terrorized…I literally had a flashlight-gun pointed at me from a sniper on top of the black armored truck the first time I opened our window to see what was going on.” “

 

     Apparently every crime is now a matter of national security . The justification for Federal stormtroopers to come your way is anything that they say it is , like the “drugs came from outside the country” . There’s a surprise , last we knew  opium was not a domestic cash crop … Just another flimsy excuse for the Feds to usurp state and local authority . 

  According to the Homeland Security website their responsibilities include :

 

” HSI investigates immigration crime, human rights violations and human smuggling, smuggling of narcotics, weapons and other types of contraband, financial crimes, cybercrime and export enforcement issues.”

 

    We know that they are not doing anything to interfere with the flow of illegal immigration , human smuggling or drug smuggling , seeing as how the Border Patrol has been ordered to “run away” from those folks crossing the border and drug mules . Their sole purpose then , would seem to be to terrorize the legal populace and create a climate of submission .

NRA The Untold Story of Gun Confiscation After Katrina

Reason has an update on the police killing of Andrew Scott by the Lake City Sheriffs Department and it does nothing to make the police look any better. Quite the contrary 

  “The fatal shooting of Andrew Scott by Lake County, Florida police provoked a flurry of outrage on the Internet and in Scott’s own  neighborhood. The anger is because Scott died in his own doorway, because he was not the suspect for whom police were searching; nor did police identify themselves when they came to his door.

As I noted last week, Scott answered the door while holding his gun at 1:30 a.m. on July 15.According to WFTV 9, deputies saw the muzzle of the gun and nothing else (implying that Scott did not open his door very wide) and quickly, without identifying himself, K-9 Deputy Richard Sylvester shot and killed Scott. His girlfriend was present in the apartment and was heard screaming. After an hour and a half, deputies realized they had shot the wrong man. They were actually searching for suspect Jonathan Brown, whom they had trailed to Scott’s apartment complex. Turns out hisapartment was next door.”

Our Protectors at Work

   We are indeed living in the age of thuggery . While the crime rates continue to fall we are left to worry about the typo by an tired clerk or the false testimony of a petty crook trying to save his bacon . Thanks to the “War on Drugs” and government growth in general the police state is upon us . No knock raids , police departments nationwide arming themselves as if for war and the ever present threat of the president’s Kill List should provide ample proof of the authorities intentions . 

     Add to these most physical of threats the endless attempts on the State’s part to take over the internet , control our speech , taking over our freedom to choose regarding our healthcare , dictating what and how much we eat and you have the foundation being laid for an authoritarian regime far worse than the rule of King George III . 

   The fact that the court ultimately ruled against the DEA in this case is small consolation for the terror those innocent girls have been made to live with . And they are some of the lucky ones . At least they weren’t killed by mistake as has happened and continues to happen to innocent citizens regularly .

 

   ” The agents entered the 14-year-old girl’s room first, shouting “Get down on the fucking ground.” The girl, who was lying on her bed, rolled onto the floor, where the agents handcuffed her. Next they went to the 11-year-old’s room. The girl was sleeping. Agents woke her up by shouting “Get down on the fucking ground.” The girl’s eyes shot open, but she was, according to her own testimony, “frozen in fear.” So the agents dragged her onto the floor. While one agent handcuffed her, another held a gun to her head.

Moments later the two daughters were carried into the living room and placed next to their parents on the floor while DEA agents ransacked their home. After 30 minutes, the agents removed the children’s handcuffs. After two hours, the agents realized they had the wrong house—the product of a sloppy license plate transcription—and left. “

Pushback

   This is the way it should be . Every industry and business and interest group that has been getting the shaft from the present cartel administration needs to go on the offensive and stop the whinerbullierpandererfundraiser , golfer in chief from running rough-shod over our livelihoods and rights . Enough is too much .
