KANSAS CITY, MO — An innocent man got a unexpected visit from police that left him shaken and fearing for his safety. Upset that he did not consent to a warrantless search of his home, officers told the man that if they had to return with a warrant, that they would be sure to ransack his home and kill his dogs in the process.
The evening of November 25th, Kansas City attorney Eric Crinnian was startled by a loud banging sound outside his house. His first reaction was to arm himself, so he picked up a crowbar and went to investigate. He says that a neighbor had recently suffered a burglary.
He discovered that the banging was coming from 3 men at his door who appeared to be police officers. He cracked the door to speak with them. That’s when he was ordered out of his home at gunpoint.
“I open the door a little bit wider and he sees that I have something in my hand, so he pulls his gun, tells me to put down whatever I’ve got and then come out with my hands up, so I do,” Crinnian said to Fox-4 News Kansas City.
The officers were seeking two men Crinnian says he had never heard of. They ended up being parole violators, and somehow police had found their way to Crinnian’s home to search for them.
After denying knowing the men and refusing a search multiple times, police became agitated. Crinnian, who works in law as a profession, told the police they’d need a warrant if they wanted to step foot inside his house. This did not please the Kansas City police officers.
That’s when one of the officers said something that deeply disturbed him.
“If we have to get a warrant, we’re going to come back when you’re not expecting it, we’re going to park in front of your house, where all your neighbors can see, we’re gonna bust in your door with a battering ram, we’re gonna shoot and kill your dogs, who are my family, and then we’re going to ransack your house looking for these people,” Crinnian recounted.
The officer’s creepy statement gives a frightening look at how some people wearing badges view the 4th amendment and the ability to abuse their power and get away with it.
Crinnian is an upstanding citizen who has no criminal record and has never had a run-in with police before they came to his house and pointed guns at him. He even added that he greatly respects KCPD. It remains to be seen much of that respect will remain after the department finishes “investigating” his case.
So far, the officer remains unnamed and the department refuses to comment. No disciplinary actions have been announced.

Aw, man. Reading the comments on that site depressed me. You can select the login used by the commenters and get a look at who responded via Google, Facebook, or WordPress.
Google has the pork apologists and half-asleep sheep, faCIAbook has the provocateurs, and WP has the trackbacks to other blogs, mostly.
Lately I haven’t seen any comment sections that weren’t encouraging. Think I’ll skip reading comments there.
Does any one else still have problems with their computer while accessing this site? I keep getting this error message:

He may have to convert that to FTFB(fuck the foot ballers) and reboot while holding the reset button.

Of course he would have to say that for public consumption. To say otherwise would invite being Waco’d by the local Pork. He may still be Waco’d, no matter how much he grovels. Porky loves to shoot, even though he ain’t that good at it.

Assault means the threat of violence. Battery means the actual violence.
It’s a game of simon says. If you’re not simon, you can’t say I’m going to kill your dogs and destroy your property. That would be assault.
When you have a costume and serve in the free shit army, you’re simon. You get to say simon says I’m going to kill your dog. Simon says I’m going to kick your ass if you don’t do what I say.
