Here’s a video – local news coverage – of the over-reaction and escalation now typical of law enforcement.
A man was locked out of his home. He and a locksmith came to get in the house. An “anonymous caller” called armed government workers, reporting a burglary. This resulted in a dozen or more heavily armed government workers SWATTing the residence. The homeowner – an articulate, clean-cut and slightly built man – attempted to explain to the order-screaming armed government workers that it’s his house but – of course – the ‘fraidy cat armed government workers had to humiliate the man “for their safety” by ordering him to submit and cuffing him in front of all his neighbors.
Mind: The man was not aggressive in any way; it was broad daylight. The government workers only had to check his ID to establish that what he said was in fact true.
But establishing dominance is what government workers are “trained” to do. To show who’s boss.
And it’s not us.
If there are still naive souls out there who believe that armed government workers “work for us” and are there to “protect and serve,” I urge them to think again.
