    @ TheBloodOfTyrants
    Sir,
    As a grown man with God given abilities and responsibilities if unable to defend myself successfully I would call my family, my friends, my neighbors, and/ or members of our congregation. With a nationwide proven record, anyone that calls law enforcement for anything other than to take a report is either irresponsible, foolish, or purposely creating an environment for unguided mayhem/ evil to occur.
    In 90% of all dealings with employees of the law enforcement industry all law abiding God fearing people need of these public employees is for them to take a report and leave.
    Thank you.

    In a related story: law enforcement that gunned down and murdered another unarmed man in a Walmart –
    “Despite surveillance video showing a man never raised an air rifle at anybody before he was shot and killed by police in an Ohio Walmart last month, a grand jury declined to indict the officers today, confirming once again that police in this country have a license to kill.
    John Crawford III, 22, was inside the Walmart talking to the mother of his children on the phone when he picked up a Crossman MK-177 air pump rifle that somebody had taken out of its box and left in an aisle before continuing to walk around the store while remaining on the phone. ”
    Regardless how many trolls, apologists, and deluded commenters are on here those pesky facts keep getting in the way of a good story.
    The race of the murder victim in Walmart just as the race of the shooting victim in this incident is not the issue. The issue is wide spread law enforcement industry incompetence, criminality, and their clear imminent threat to the public as a domestic terror organization.
    Facts have a way of making life uncomfortable for evil.
    Thank you.

    @BryanB
    Sir,
    It is infrequent that I agree with your posts but this is one I do agree with. I would differ with your reference to training; this is out of the defacto policy – officer safety trumps logic, reason, common sense, reality, and safety of the general public.
    I think we both agree, maturity, situational awareness, respect for the public and their rights, a strict blood and urine testing program done quarterly and return to revolver service weapons and real shooting qualification would be a place to start fixing this. Oh one last thing; no moral/ legal waivers for any potential employee. Why would you give limited immunity and state approval to kill to someone that has committed crimes and/or demonstrated a lack of morals.
    Thank you.

    @ SpeckChaser
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Well, I understand your approach. However, I believe that you are missing a real means to stop law enforcement industry crime.
    Law enforcement pretends to be military; uniforms, rank, weapons, communications, tactics all accept in the area of accountability and rules of engagement.
    In a ground combat unit, the commanding officer is personally responsible for all his unit does and fails to do. This is a historically proven method to stop/ reduce unit actions outside the rules of war/ good order and discipline.
    How about this employee, his watch supervisor, his training supervisor, and the head of this department all be fired for cause? I guaranty this wanton lawlessness that places the public in constant danger would end within a few months. Why you ask? Because those that are paid to supervisor would pay a personal price for their incompetence. Why? Because, finally there would be consequence for law enforcement crime. Why? Because the only other way to end this law enforcement industry crime wave would be to hunt the criminals individually. That course of action may draw momentary results but ends in a civil war. When you think about, perhaps there are forces moving/ promoting this widespread confrontation.
    Thank you.

    A remarkable incident. Why you ask?
    - Gross professional incompetence is being polite:
    - exhibit A: dash and other video cannot be explained away.
    - exhibit B: the employee failed to plant a weapon or contraband.
    - exhibit C: the employee failed to follow union guidelines – do not make any statement until you have an attorney, all available evidence can be reviewed, informal suborn perjury started, he failed to kill the victim.
    The employee will not be charged as any other non law enforcement employee would; he will be under charged.
    At trial, if the public makes the legal system go that far, that system will put up a terrible prosecution. Expect groups of law enforcement union goons to attend the trial and hiss and boo to intimidate the jury~ ala Kelly Thomas.
    All unions and the bank roll from training, equipment, and weapon industry lobbyist will funnel money to the employee’s defense.
    All unions, fraternal organizations, associations, and other organizations will not beg forgiveness from the public for this attempted murder but will actively promote any incident that can take momentary attention away from this crime.
    Tell me again, why any reasonable, sane, law abiding, God fearing, American allows this to happen hundreds of times each year? Tell me again how heroic the law enforcement industry is!
    For those that are not completely delusional, this incident is just a lottery ticket away from happening to you, your family, your friends.
    Madness sure madness!
    Thank you.

    SCOTUS also ruled that slavery and abortion are good.
    There was no rude behavior here unless you believe total debasement of yourself to any and all whims of these employees is the only acceptable action.
    Actually, what you are talking about is legality not the law. Law is derived from God given rights and enshrined in our founding documents. All else is the lecherous hand of the tax consuming class arranging a set of circumstances to take something from you: time, freedom, rights, money, property, life.
    A quote: If an organization displayed a pattern of assault, rape, murder, theft, home invasion, and racketeering would a person coming in contact with members of that organization have a reasonable expectation that they would be harmed if they did not act to preserve their own life? ~ Dave Hodges
    Thank you

    @ MEnnis0852
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Your analogy has merit in one respect: a law enforcement employee and a bear look at humans as a potential food source – employee = generate revenue and secure my pay check/ bear = the need to feed. Both are driven by self interest and exhibit no regard for the life they are taking something from. At the end of the event the bear is full and the employee has provided another revenue stream for his maters.
    You are correct, law enforcement exalts in killing. Not in public. Not in print but within the ranks. You would be surprised how a non law enforcement employee is spoken about and the fun and laughter taking that life/ causing harm draws. Any current law enforcement employee that says otherwise is lying and unable to see what is taking place. This is routine chatter any time you process a tactical team for recertification.
    Thank you.

    @ TommyJefferson1776
    Sir,
    From your statement a few things become clear:
    - You are following orders – a line all totalitarian corruption government flunkies have used.
    - The exercise of ones rights, purchased at great expense of blood and treasure. should not be thrown aside for the comfort a law enforcement employee as his twisted self-image.
    - I am glad you no longer have limited immunity and state sanction to kill because, as you have admitted; you lacked the maturity, situational awareness, respect for your oath of office, and for the country to discharge those duties correctly.
    I hope you are successful and happy in your new endeavors and that they do not give you state power over anyone.
    Thank you.

    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Wonderful analogy!
    Yes, the privilege of paying to use a mode of transportation subsidized by tax money that requires you to be irradiated, sexually assaulted, potentially robbed and insulted regardless of any identifiable articulable suspicion and the expanding use of road blocks. How else do we arrive at mandatory blood draws?
    I could not have identified in more stark terms how our country is being destroyed.
    Thank you.

  • [15] September 24, 2014 at 8:34am

    @ The-Monk & Anabasis,
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    You are both correct.
    In Il, CA, NY, and NJ, in particular, but this is spreading – see Austin TX, the use of these roadblocks are a pretext for revenue generation. I personally believe that most employees engaged in these unlawful and unconstitutional stops do not give a fig newton about anything other than their compensation and those on these roads blocks due receive extra compensation.
    Almost every department teaches and promotes expanding these encounters into citation/ arrest mechanisms. The citations and arrests most of the time have nothing to due with an actual criminal activity but everything to do with not knowing about a specific equipment failure/ ordinance/ traffic regulation interpretation.
    I live in FL. The usual device used by law enforcement employees to start an encounter is when I drive my tinted window work van. This happens routinely in the FL badlands also known as Miami-Dade. I inform the employee that he is being recorded because I have cameras front and rear and if he can prove the tint is illegal please write a citation and I will see him in court. The tint on the windows is factory and in compliance with fed state and local laws.
    Once you give a road pirate no room to steal and inform them that they are providing evidence with their actions and speech they back-off. I have not received a ticket upheld in court in 38 years. I have gone to court three times in Miami-Dade for this ruse. Thank you.

    @ Starky222
    Sir/ Ma’am.
    First I do not, not agree with the inflammatory comments of rotaredomsyfg.
    Second, I think you took the bait of a sponsored troll. Third, you are woefully misguided, misinformed, or delusional about the capabilities of law enforcement, the paradigm they operate under, and the limits of their capabilities. I know what they are because I taught them tactics and tactical shooting.
    Regardless of your views on the American police state, there is a basic operating concept that all law enforcement adheres too; compliance of the masses based on escalation of force.
    What seems to be lost on many here that say they support law enforcement is that the legitimacy of the law enforcement industry is in decline. Legitimacy is the only attribute that allows this industry to operate with any semblance of civil policing actions. Once legitimacy reaches the tipping point the only way law enforcement can operate is through the threat and use of the force continuum. We, as a society, are on that force continuum now. Think about it! What is the logical conclusion – killing. Killing for the most innocuous incidents you can think of.
    The epilogue of this conclusion is a tyrannical police state at war with the population.
    My advice; don’t take the bait. Don’t accept unlawful actions by any side in this escalation. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Pray for our country.
    Thank you.

    @ macpappy
    Sir,
    Here are a few links. There are literally a hundred between prison and county jails throughout the state.
    Thank you.

    “The Dade County Police Benevolent Association has become aware that Miami-Dade County/Miami-Dade Police Department intends to outfit Miami-Dade police officers with body cameras. The Association believes that this unilateral change in terms and contains of employment violates the current collective bargaining agreements as it will distract officers from their duties, and hamper their ability to act and react in dangerous situations consistent with their police training, placing the lives of the public and the officers in danger. As anyone with knowledge of place training and tactics knows, if an officer hesitates for even a second in a life threatening situation, it can cost that officer his or her life, and/or put the lives of others at risk. This unilateral change will also potentially reveal the identity of undercover personnel to criminals and expose surveillance techniques, in violation of the Agreements and the Law. This puts officers’ safety at risk.”

    And in other real news that is important to all Americans that believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law: The law enforcement industry through their unions, front organizations, underground training and equipment business has placed a petition on the White House website to declare Cop Block, a sophomoric gaggle of people that legally record law enforcement, as a domestic terrorist organization.
    Who the heck cares about a bunch of misguided child-like people that spend days legally recording law enforcement? All here should pay attention to this because it is the first action in the open by the police state to make lawful action an act of terror.
    Hand in hand with real news; Miami Dade law enforcement unions are in open rebellion because they do not want to wear body cams. The union goons claim these body cams are a danger to their members! I wonder why?
    Further, throughout the state of FL, a group of law enforcement employees have been fired because the state provided they have murdered unarmed prisoners; beaten to death, burned to death, tortured to death. The ironic thing is they were fired but are not prosecuted. Apparently the Legal industry is fine with government agent murder being paid by the tax payer in civil litigation not by those committing these murders.
    I am sure the Blaze will be all over these stories because they always provide a clear presentation of the facts that are important to the country.
    Thank you.

    I agree with your focus on the importance of participation in civic action. This, the pornographic titillation hacking thing of celebrity women that sell the images of their bodies regardless of what was hacked, the mass media war on women/ children/ humanity are all designed to divert attention from the true rot killing our democracy and society.
    With regard to the NFL/ NBA; these are two business that embody the secular nihilist mass culture that is destroying our soul. Yes, Mr. Tebow is a distraction and not wanted in the NFL. However, these criminals are to be understood because they just made a mistake!
    Pray for our country.
    Thank you.

    I have not read all on this incident. I thought he was a person of interest? After a state law enforcement employee, wearing military rank, went on TV and told the audience that “We will get you”, apparently they switched his status to a suspect.
    This is confusing and the overkill with the tag lines out of the national threat center “survivalist, weapons” etc seems right out of a script.
    I wonder if they will take him alive?
    I wonder what was his motivation?
    I wonder why this is the second targeting of PA state law enforcement in about a year?
    I wonder why law abiding people are being held hostage?
    I pray that these law enforcement employees do not hurt or kill the innocent.
    Does anyone have an update on the condition of the wounded employee?
    This morning we lead a prayer for the deceased, his family, and the family of the wounded employee in church.
    Does anyone know if this “suspect” has a connection to any of the sex abuse scandals, or killings of the unarmed by PA state law enforcement?
    I pray that all here realize that murder is a sin as well as a crime and that killing in self defense is the only thing that is not murder.
    Thank you.

    The last full measure of devotion to others. A remarkable story of love! This woman is an inspiration to all and reflects what true “service” means.
    Our family will be saying prayers for her soul and to comfort her family in their time of need. If anyone has information about this woman, our family, all fourteen of us, want to help her family and need a way to contact them.
    Thank you.

    @ For my Liberty!
    Ma’am,
    With all due respect these are not, not soldiers. These are Marines! I respect soldiers, fought and bled with a number of outstanding Rangers in my time even a few in a Det A. In the warrior culture, identifying that man or woman by their correct title is the first sign of respect. Every man and woman that volunteers to “serve” this country and take an oath before God and man deserves our undying gratitude and respect.
    Thank you.
    Semper Fi.

  • [42] September 19, 2014 at 12:28pm

    Next to my Christian faith and family there is nothing in this world that approaches my devotion to and love for the Marine Corps.
    A group of men and women that dedicate their lives to “serving others” – their country! A group of men and women that state a standard, enforce that standard, and follow an oath sworn before God and man! A group of men and women that will not tolerate any in their midst that fail to live that oath or meet that standard!
    God bless the United States Marine Corps and this country.
    Thank you.
    Semper Fi.

    A few things to consider:
    - Those attacking Higbie are in fact in law enforcement and have taken a sworn oath. Oh, sorry I forgot, an oath in law enforcement is like a check for a meal; something to be discarded without thought and not applicable to the member.
    - In the event the lien is foreclosed it will be law enforcement that performs this task. All government theft is conducted at the barrel a weapon.
    - Widespread routine debauchery in the State Department as well as with Presidential Delegations is well known.
    - There are literally hundreds of people with direct personal knowledge of a multi day orgy of alcohol drugs and sex (hetro and ****) with underage children and others in Prague at a summit. If the Blaze wanted to gain credibility as a news outlet they would look at VA contracting criminal workings and then at the criminal acts taking place on Official Presidential, State, and Congressional Delegation trips.
    - The level of depravity is biblical in scope.
    Thank you.

    @ reconmarine
    Jarhead,
    Thank you for your service. Which BN and when?
    With regard to your comment, and the racist comments of others here I will point out the obvious:
    1. The grand jury has not voted on the presented facts with regard to the killing of Mr. Brown.
    2. The Ferguson PD and St. Louis county PD violated its’ own policies and law in not filling the required reports of the incident: an incident report and a use of force report.
    3. In defense of employee Wilson, this grand jury is being run on a fishing expedition, they are looking to formulate their own charges vice the prosecutor presenting them with charges.
    4. The one thing I know for certain is that no one here knows ground truth and given the political powers on all sides in play we may never know.
    5. As in any Marine unit, when you blow your TTP’s and SOP because things get hairy generally nothing good happens in the after action report. I suspect Ferguson and St Louis county will find themselves paying for not meeting the professional requirement.
    Semper Fi.
    Thank you.
