    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

    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!

    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.

    @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.

    @ 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.

  • April 4, 2014 at 1:36pm

    I would recommend that you send a note to the family of Andy Lopez age 13, Christopher Roupe age 17, and 70 year old Bobby Canipe. Tell them that sometimes law enforcement is playing jokes and sometimes they have deadly intent. The trick is you, the public, just never know. See how that goes over.

    This is madness.

  • April 4, 2014 at 1:10pm

    @WillTheBlazeFreezeThisAccount Sir/ Ma’am,
    There are things ordered (POTUS GHW Bush – removing weapons from the barracks and home station workspaces of the service members and consolidating them in armories) that may seem to be reasonable and responsible for a particular issue. However, the one size fits all approach to risk avoidance also has consequences.
    For as long as there has been recorded military history, the concept of an interior guard has been recognized as a valid and reasonable policy regardless of unit location in order for emergencies and “real” threats to be dealt with quickly and effectively minimizing damage to personnel, property, and equipment of the unit.
    Having an armed Officer of the Day (OOD), Sergeant of the Guard (SOG), Corporal of the Guard (COG), and specific post sentries provided a measure of response to a long list of potential emergency situations. In the current environment this interior guard has gone the way of much time tested martial doctrine.
    Military Police and federal law enforcement employees aboard a military reservation are not designed, capable, nor required to protect everyone aboard the base.
    As with our children, collecting a group of people in an advertised area where all are unarmed and incapable of self defense is an invitation to SSRI fueled madmen and terrorists to commit atrocities.
    In my opinion, moral leadership is in short supply in the DoD as well as public office.

    Can you tell us how large is the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department? I read that the department spokesman is a Col. John Fortunato. In the Marine Corps, a Colonel will command 2,000 to 3,000 Marines and Sailors. Is this Sheriff department that large?
    Ok, sarcasm aside. Why does law enforcement adopt military ranks when they are not military? I guess it is just one of those things that just does not make sense or does it?

  • April 4, 2014 at 12:25pm

    @ GhostDog51 Sir or Ma’am,
    With regard to your comment ” It takes an effort to actually grow up and understand who they are and what they do. Sure, there’s bad cops out there. There’s bad people in EVERY profession. But sitting behind a keyboard and spouting childish absolutisms like “all cops are bad”.
    You have a point I accept when reading some comments on the Blaze. However, if one cannot have a reasonable discussion about the activities, policies, and tactics of law enforcement then, in my view, the “all is well move along now” approach is just as counterproductive as “all cops are bad” approach.
    Part of the reason why I respect military service and the service of civilians that perform civic tasks, such as law enforcement, is because it takes tremendous devotion and selflessness to perform these functions correctly. Unlike your position, I believe that identifying those that do not perform to standard is valuable and necessary in order to maintain a professional standard.
    In the Marine Corps, a retired 30 year war veteran here with a few years teaching tactics to law enforcement, I want those that do not measure up to be removed from responsibility and authority. In my view, the law enforcement industry has gone through a sea change and sadly the military has as well. Accountability and enforcing standards are now a thing of the past. Excellence must be the minimum standard. Humans are not capable of this standard all the time. However, when you aim low

  • April 3, 2014 at 7:04pm

    So let me understand what is taking pace. Law enforcement employees are knowingly, willingly, and with premeditation, conducting unlawful, illegal stops of law abiding citizens as a prank?

    Why are tax payers or anyone that is concerned about the government function properly and within the law, allow this to happen?

    Law enforcement violating the constitution, and in may states state code, as a prank proves the recurring point of many commenting here; law enforcement is out of control, mismanaged, ineffective, inefficient, and malicious with regard to the trampling of citizen rights.

    A fitting sick joke on the law abiding citizens of this country.

    I am sure the families of the dead, the wounded, and the families of the wounded at Ft Hood will be receptive to your tacit approval of gun restrictions. Law enforcement is not designed, capable, nor required to protect every person. Government actually creates the locations where evil goes killing; schools, military bases, public buildings, because they are locations with large numbers of unarmed victims.

    I don’t know where you live, when I was young everyone had a gun rack in their pickup truck with a shotgun or rifle on it. Over the last few years law enforcements’ paranoia has made lawfully carrying any weapon a gamble with death at law enforcement hands..

    If you never would trust someone with a gun why do you trust law enforcement? Do the statistics support your belief that law enforcement does not shoot and kill the innocent, the unarmed, the unintended target? Do you realize that law enforcement can be diagnosed mental disorders and still keep their jobs. Do you realize that in many departments law enforcement employees use alcohol and illegal drugs before during and after their shift?

    In my personnel experience I find all people act more thoughtfully, are civil, and more respectful of others when everyone is armed.
