I found the following video – taken by a news reporter in her car – and thought it was worth a word or three. The woman is sitting in her vehicle, apparently doing a live feed – via Skype or Facebook or some such. The point is, she’s just sitting in her car and isn’t bothering anyone.
An “anonymous call” summons a “hero” – who claims they “got a call” about a “crazy lady” talking to herself.
Note two facts.
First, that it is not illegal to sit in your car a talk to yourself – and thus, “heroes” (armed government workers) had no lawful business accosting the woman. Yet she was compelled – under duress – to interrupt what she was doing and explain her business to an armed government worker. Had she ignored the armed government worker and driven off, the armed government worker almost certainly would have escalated the situation. This could have resulted in her being physically attacked, possibly shot to death. The “hero” would claim the woman “ignored his commands” and … well, you know how it goes.
Second, this business of “someone called.”
Remember that old business about having a right to be confronted by your accuser?
So much for that business.
Now all it takes, apparently, is for “someone” to call. Or for an armed government worker to claim “someone” called. No actual proof that “someone” called is necessary. Nor that this “someone” be required to identify themselves, so that the accused may know who has accused him.
It was like this in the old Soviet Union. All it took for the NKVD thugs to show up at your door was an anonymous tip – or the claim of one.
Am I the only one who groks that this opens the door to the elimination of whatever remains of legal immunity from random, arbitrary abuse by armed government workers?
And to those who think I am over-reacting, that the incident above – and others like it – are petty annoyances and not to worry, I remind you of SWATTing people. It’s the same thing. “Someone” calls, makes anonymous and unsubstantiated claims that hostages are being held at gunpoint, kids are being abused – etc. – and that’s all it takes to summon a gang of heavily armed government workers to the doorstep of the soon-to-be-victim, innocent of any crime.
He hears screaming men, sees flashing lights. Surprised, he opens the door and gestures – and is shot dead on his porch for the sake of Officer Safety. This happens now, in America.
Because America is no longer America.
Because of what you see in this video.
