A couple of guys trying to sell their truck are surrounded by three badged bullies . . . because “someone called” and their truck is “suspicious,” according to one of the armed government workers.
One buzzcut bullethead demands ID – your papers, but without the please. The truck’s owner declines to provide it, on the basis of his not having committed any crime. He asks the AGW what he is “suspected” of? The AGW can’t come up with anything so he comes up with a “parking” violation. But the truck is parked on private property – and thus the AGWs have no Authoritah to ticket.
By this time, the truck is surrounded by AGWs. The truck’s owner stands his ground about the “papers” (sans the please) while his friend also videos the goings-on, which the AGWs do not like at all.
After a few minutes of this, the AGWs allow the guys to leave – but follow them menacingly out of the parking lot. Miraculously, they were not pulled over – and Hut! Hut! Hutted! – once on “public” (i.e., government) property and subject to the Authoritah of AGWs.
Note the amount of manpower and time and resources devoted to all of this. Three badged, body-armored bullies… over two guys in a truck with a “for sale” sign on it, not causing trouble much less harming anyone.
