    Your right. Wait and never believe your lying eyes. In fact, if your eyes offend the, pluck them out! So you understand, I am not advocating your disfigurement.

    You are cutting black for the most part. Two points to consider:

    Since Agency, Naval, and terrestrial sensor packages do provide predictive analysis with numerically insignificant sigma why are these systems not used for those in harms way?

    The sunk cost; R&D, procurement, operations and maintenance, doctrine and training dollars should be applied to what combat assessment analysis provides not the rice bowls of the stars. Right?

    This is not an isolated nor infrequent happening in DoD. The R&D, procurement, and doctrine and training fiefdoms have literally trillions of dollars tied up in them. From general/ flag officer reputations, to flag equivalent civilian bureaucrats, to lobbyists, to politicians and the actual contractors that fund this system.

    The unfortunate truth is most times off the self low cost equipment and devices have no money behind their promotion. This is not the result of the current administration but a function of how this system works. The grunt, Marine or Soldier, and their Corpsman or Medic are made to pay with blood in order to keep this system spinning.

    Unfortunately sir you are half right. The other half is a total lack of reasonable, responsible, rationale actions by those paid to be law enforcement employees.

    I do agree with your comment at least as I interpret it, about the emasculation of society. Everything is a threat and somehow against some ordnance, code, or policy interpretation.

    This small event is just another sign post on this road to an approaching future that is 180 degrees out from the country I grew up in and served for 30 years.

    I have no knowledge of any department or academy that promotes the willful tripping of citizen who have not been engaged by direct lawful order to stop a specific activity.

    What I see is an act that has the potential to place the community in civil litigation by creating a situation that promotes personal injury.

    Regardless, the parent standing within arms reach of the law enforcement employee attempting to trip the teenage girl, should have told him to cease and should have called 911 to report a jerk that should not be armed.

    This is an interesting situation. A prepubescent child faces felony charges.

    Am I the only one that sees systemic failure here?

    I have no idea if the law enforcement employee wrote the charges himself or was directed to do so.

    Does anyone else see the madness in using law enforcement employees to arrest 8 year olds?

    If the school is a specialty school with the staff and charter to work with these type of challenged children how did the child run away? Who is responsible here. A disturbed 8 year old child or the well compensated and trained school employees?
    What possible gain other than arrest and conviction records, does this county prosecutor gain from funneling this incident into the court system?

    I do not know what the best policy approach is here. I do know that using law enforcement and the legal system for this is gross mismanagement.

    What can one say?
    The good news Lee county:
    The law enforcement employees did not physically assault the members of this group.
    The law enforcement employees did not taser nor shoot any unarmed people.
    The law enforcement employees were not wearing the standard skin-head neo-Nazi hairdo.
    Only one law enforcement employee was morbidly obese the other just over-weight.
    The bad news for Lee county:
    The employees of sheriff scott once again have violated their oath and by extension so has scott.
    The law enforcement employees have opened the potential for a civil suit.
    The employees continue to demonstrate that there are too many employees in the department if a call such as this brings multiple employees to a peaceful lawful scene.
    Once again, scott’s hero’s have demonstrated that there is no common sense, oath keeping, or respect for the rule of law. In Lee county law is whatever policy they think they can get away with.

    I do not know either candidate in a political sense. I and most of the officers and enlisted in the P3 community and those that served inside the belt way that came in contact with him, do know Shane Osborn as a Naval officer. What I know about Osborn is that after the incident he tried to pass himself off as a wounded war hero attending the Ross Perot funded combat heroes banquets. I also know that he spent most of his duty time not performing his assigned duties but hanging around Senator Hagel’s office, telling anyone that would listen that he was a protégé of Senator Hagel.

    As I said, I have no personal knowledge of Osborn after he left the service. I will say that a military man is defined by his service and from what I have personally seen and from what the P3 community says about him the people of Nebraska may want to look elsewhere for a senator.

    Mr. Beck, a pied piper. First his editors put out research that makes Bundy look like a crook. Then they say Reid has no real connection to this assault on Bundy and the population. Now Mr. Beck is saying that demonstrating in a peaceful but capable manner is the equivalent of Occupy?
    Let’s get a few facts straight:
    The grazing land that Bundy (and in years past over 50 others) used is connected to the Chinese solar farm deal. There are documents readily available to Blaze researchers that demonstrate the grazing land is being cleared in order to accommodate the environmental impact offset to the tortoise.
    All of the court trials were conducted in Federal vice state courts.
    A Reid crony judge is one of those that ruled against Bundy.
    Clark county Commissioner stated that out of state support “better make funeral arrangements”.
    The FBI did deploy HRT sniper teams and direct action teams as did ATF to the site.
    Reid receives the maximum political contributions from each adult member of the Huntsman family.
    Huntsman is the benefactor behind Mr. Beck.
    This is beginning to feel exactly like the 2012 presidential primary. If you recall Mr. Beck was part of the massive attack machine that destroyed any alternative to a Romney run. Also recall, after the expected loss, Mr. Beck found Libertarianism once the full spectrum of the disaster had come into focus. Now Mr. Beck wants you to believe those acting on principle and natural law are anarchists! We are being shown somet

  • April 15, 2014 at 9:42am

    This headline from the Blaze editorial staff is another sign post telling us Becks’ behind the fascist government.

    What is shocking about the time tested tactic? Nothing! What is unusual about deploying your forces in a manner advantageous to your aims (peaceful removal of paramilitary mercenaries from the community)? Nothing!
    Why would this editorial staff say this is shocking? Hmmmmmmm!

  • April 11, 2014 at 5:51pm

    The chief law enforcement employee has a point.
    Just an observation: why are all of the law enforcement employees that end up in articles on this site morbidly obese? Something that rubs me the wrong way about the law enforcement industry in general is that lack of standards and a slovenly appearance has no place in a military appearing uniform.

    @ zorro
    Research the “Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone. That is why this land grab is underway. Ried (D) NV has his former senior advisor running this at BLM. This is an approved project at the department of energy. Follow the money!

    With regard to your comment about what the thugs are suppose to do; they could actually start by following their oath! They could defuse the situation instead of ramping up the pressure! They could act like something other than
    psychotics. This is right out of any number of melodramas about pre was Germany.

  • April 9, 2014 at 12:26pm

    @zorro, Sir/ Ma’am,
    We did not know Luis.
    It is curious how life works. When Moore suffered the tornado one of our daughters went with a group from our church to help the people over come the tragedy. Penelope, is one of our adopted children, originally from Taiwan, and had a few negative experiences will trying to help in the recovery.
    Our church has reached out to Nair and her family to assist since Luis was the primary earner in the family.

  • April 8, 2014 at 9:50am

    @ MajorlyRetired Sir/ Ma’am,
    It is not a question of being lucky. If one is honest, believes in the constitution, holds elected officials to their oath, and evaluates performance on that basis Scott is not conservative nor a constitutionalist.

    You are correct, the only opponent that Scott has had is Lee Bushong (D), a union promoting shoot first and don’t ask question later type.

    You do realize that through Scott’s mismanagement the department is once again in the red? You do realize no matter how many tickets given to snow birds and spring breakers Scott is making the play to raise your taxes? You do realize the first thing Scott’s law enforcement union buddy, Pendergrass, did when he was elected head county commissioner was raise taxes? You do realize that all of the civil litigation awards caused by Scott are paid by THE TAXPAYER?

    You do realize that constitutional rights are not applicable based on skin pigmentation? You do realize that murder is a sin against God?

  • April 7, 2014 at 7:17pm

    Sir/ Ma’am,

    Do you have any idea how much Scott has cost county taxpayers in civil litigation suits? Do you know how many unarmed people his department has shot?

    How about a sheriff that does not let his jail throw paraplegics onto the floor and beat them?

    How about a sheriff that will post all of the complaints against the department?

    How about a sheriff that does not give huge bonus’s to the head of internal affairs for not doing his job and let’s him golf during working hours for years?

    Well I guess your right, you will reelect him. Boy, when they finally get the billion dollar civil suit I wonder what you will say then? Offer to pay it for all I hope!

  • April 7, 2014 at 6:54pm

    @ legirons Sir/ Ma’am,

    Your faith in this department is misplaced. Do a search and see all of the law enforcement employees that have been charged with crimes.

    This department does not provide real data on criminal complaints against the department but the department is being investigated by the feds…. a small time criminal gang being investigated by the big time criminal gang!

    People from here that see what is going on know that this is all going to blowup just like Trey Radel, the cocaine congressman, also from here.

    I believe in the law. I believe in law enforcement employees that follow their oath regardless of cost. I wish there were oath keepers in this department but if there are they are hiding. Scott is another faithless, mindless, oath breaking traitor masquerading as a constitutional sheriff. A constitutional sheriff? This could not be farther from the truth.

  • April 7, 2014 at 6:38pm

    Scott and the county commissioner Pendergrass have R behind their names. But this is an equal criminality county. Pendergrass was the head union goon of the law enforcement union before becoming commissioner. This is the group that brought us the cocaine addict congressman Trey Radel.

    Scott is a home grown FL boy that is riding political patronage because it is obvious he is not to bright and his history of running a criminal department will catch up to him shortly.

  • April 7, 2014 at 5:52pm

    I know this sheriff and this department.

    Scott achieved national attention attending GOP political events in his uniform. Less well known, Scott and his department have committed/ do commit crimes up to and including torture and murder. The most outrageous of these crimes was the 48 hour torture and eventual murder of Nick Christie a man from Ohio on vacation. Mr. Christie’s death was ruled homicide but the State Attorney General said she cold not investigate the 6 deputies involved in the torture/ murder because Scott would not provide evidence.

    Scott refuses to give interviews to local newspapers. Uses his swat assets to respond to domestic violence complaints and his department regularly steals cash off of county jail detainees and propositions coed’s during vehicle stops around the local universities and colleges.

    It is one thing to be spinning things to put a good light on an incident of deputies stepping over the line. It is a different thing to run a lawless department that beats paraplegics, shoots women in the back, murders and tortures tourists.

    Scott and his department have amassed a record of evil and criminal activity that is outrageous and disgusting given the size of the force. The citizens of Lee County continue to pay for civil settlements caused by the crimes of Scott and his employees. However, the real danger to the public is Scott’s treatment of the growing minority population in the county and the blow-back this will eventually cause.

  • April 7, 2014 at 5:01pm

    I agree with your comment.

    I just wish the citizens of Moore would have done the same for the Rodriguez family when five Moore law enforcement employees beat Luis to death in front of his wife Nair, and their daughter in a mall parking lot.

    In fact, when I viewed the video from this article, who did I see, but one of Luis’ killers.

    Moore has suffered terribly. However, that does not absolve them of the murders committed and approved in their name.

    I pray the Lord provides them with the wisdom and the courage to not only denounce evil masquerading as religion but also evil masquerading as law enforcement.

    So you have told us that you sold your children’s birth right for lollypops. It never occurred to you that this little farce you participate in, taught your children, has no connection to institutional corruption and lawlessness that sealed the death of Flint?
    Pavlovian responses to the sight of law enforcement employees stopping you when no crime, vehicular violation, nor wanted fugitive or absconder is present, are part and parcel of the exercise. The law enforcement employee, by detaining you without cause or provocation, committed an illegal unlawful act and violated his or her oath. When you accepted the lollypops, you thought a benign act, you actually made the stop legit because you accepted payment just as those pudding heads in the video did accepting reserve notes.
    In your case you sold your rights of citizenship and that of your children for lollypops. In the case of the carefully selected millennials, they got a little more in order to be made a fool and complicit in the destruction of the constitution.
    I cannot believe you fail to understand the basic transaction. I don’t know why you speak of your shame in this way. Do you not know nor appreciate all of the blood split and treasure spent to earn the rights you fritter away for candy and speak of it as nothing?
    In the end, you own a large part of this country’s decline. I am sorry you are so blind and foolish. You grandchildren and their children will pay for your foolish and selfish behavior.
