VIDEO: Innocent Man Stands Up to Entire SWAT Team Raiding His Home With No Warrant — He Wins

Odessa, TX — On Thursday morning, an Odessa man and his family were rudely awakened by a dozen militarized DEA and SWAT officers with AR-15s at their front door. Instead of cowering to the men who were clearly not authorized to be there, this man stood his ground and sent them on their way.

“We were rudely awakened, they just started banging on the door,” said the man who wishes to remain anonymous in an interview with KEPJ News, “I just didn’t like the way they did it.”

Ector County SWAT team was assisting the DEA in a raid on Tripp Avenue when they simply decided to move to the next house and attempt to enter without a warrant. The next house belonged to this innocent man, who was angered by such a vulgar display of incompetent power.

As the SWAT team tries to enter the man’s home without a warrant, he began filming and giving them a piece of his mind.

After their verbal beating, the cops finally left but not before one of them flipped him off.

On Friday, while speaking with KPEJ, the agency released the following statement regarding the matter:

“On May 5, 2016, agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration executed a federal search warrant on Tripp Avenue. During the course of this same investigation, agents contacted (the resident) who resides at a nearby residence. (The resident) was uncooperative with the agents so they departed the premises without incident.”

Luckily for the man filming, he and his family were not held at gunpoint, forced from the home, arrested, or worse. All too often we see instances of incompetent SWAT teams raid the wrong home and unapologetically assault, maim, or otherwise murder the occupants.

Case after case we see SWAT teams kick down doors to homes, shoot dogs, throw grenades at babies, and even kill innocent people because they are at the wrong house, or acting on incorrect information.

Marianne Diaz and her children were asleep during the pre-dawn hours of August 18 when a gang of heavily armed militarized men kicked in the door to their apartment and began terrorizing this family. Diaz was woken up by the sound of multiple doors being kicked in. The next thing she knew, she was naked and on her knees, looking down the barrels of several AR-15 rifles. “Stop f**king crying and take care of your f**king kids,” she quoted one officer as saying. According to Diaz, the militarized gang would keep her in this state of terror, completely nude, for ten minutes.

Tabatha Werkmeister, Grinage Dion Wilson and their four young children, ages 2 through 9 were subject to violent militarized men kicking in their door in a predawn raid in January of last year. These armed men threw a smoke bomb into their home and forced the family, who was barefoot and in their pajamas, into the 20-degree snowy weather outside. To provide them with a bit of police state comfort, they were forced into the back of an unheated SWAT vehicle for nearly an hour before the SWAT team realized they were at the wrong home.

    when will the officers requesting warrants and judges who sign them be held accountable?
    When will these SS groups be held accountable.
    With out accountability there will never be an end to this oppressive abuse of our fellow citizens which escalates with each incident that is not prosecuted.

    • James Michael

      When Americans start shooting the treasonous ass felon scumbags….
      Being over 90% of warrants are completely unlawful…and EVERY drug warrant is treason and a felony….
      NO constitutional amendment allowing prohibition…What they were doing on the other mans home was a felony home invasion……

      • Greyvet

        So James, you recommend escalation as a cure? Do you really think the citizenry can change the oppression that way? Do you think the power structure would fold if faced with a citizenry hardly and nearly armed and trained as well as the oppressor class?
        Treason is exactly what your frustration is recommending.
        I think the power is in the people and the approach you recommend is an example of not realizing that power. I also believe, although, seemingly insurmountable in the face of the owner class, it is we, the people who need to, discard these manufactured (also by the owner class) divisions of race and religious tenents and quit staring at them as the shiny object. It is a distraction crafted to divide, to dis-empower and once that is realized we, as a citizenry, will regain the power granted to us by our constitution.

          because peaceful dissent worked so well in nazi germany.

      • Gregory Pius

        Perhaps you have failed to recognize the fact that, as the video very vividly demonstrates, the weapon that turned out to be much more powerful and effective at driving back the invading SS was not another AR-15… but a humble camera.

    Other than the cursing, this was the right way to do this. Maybe a tad less anger. Firm but polite resistance…with a camera. It didn’t hurt that they were under cover of some sort or just allergic to having their face on the interweb….

    • billdeserthills

      This man was lucky to be a mexican, in a place where cops aren’t interested in arresting mexicans. Also calling them all ‘Boss’ because they are obviously in charge

      bullshit dude, this man has no obligation to fellate a group of highwaymen just because they collect a salary out of his taxes

  • NeonDisease

    “the resident was uncooperative”

    So if it’s “uncooperative” to deny entry to someone that has no legal authority to enter, would these cops be so “uncooperative” if a bunch of citizens got together and wanted to search the cops’ house?

    • Joseph Edward Bodden

      at least he didn’t end up in a train cattle car on the way to Auschwitz or some other…

  • Brad

    If an officer covers his face while standing in my lawn I’m demanding to see an id as is my right (chapter 41 section 98d in my state) and if you’re letting me see your state issue officer id youre letting my camera see it. If not Ill call 911 demand a sherriffs deputy then get in my car and follow them to the station if need be. you show up on my property unwelcome without a warrant and cover you’re face in front of my camera im getting your information talking to my lawyer and pressing charges for trespassing

    end of story

    • Mack Tackleton

      I would refuse and walk away. Also who says I don’t just take your camera?

      • Brad

        Again i can drive to the station behind you thats not a crime or threat. Arrest me for it ill sue you for that too. Take my camera on my property and you’ll be caught on other cameras on my property.

        still feel clever? You idiots think you can turn off one camera and youre good then these morons get caught on all the other cameras around(officers are even getting caught on their own forgetting just how many cameras are watcing). There are too many cameras youve gone beyond the point of no return for that unless you are going just grow a pair and kill me in order to successfully raid my home without a warrant then the vast majority is going to come to light and guess what; the dumbest segment of society will ALWAYs be fooled I don’t have to try to teach them a damn thing I talk so that everybody can hear but only to people that are listening

        • Mack Tackleton

          I would ask you to leave or cite you for trespass, unless you have a valid reason/official business there. If you put up a struggle I will arrest you. Think you can win in court? Think again. Judges back up the police most of the time.

          • Brad

            I pay for that building fuckstick. Youre required to identify yourself thats my business i can find the lawyer to win that. Arrest my in the office for demanding your id it won’t add to YOUR case when it goes to court. What happens is youre going to lay hands on me because youre too much of a fucking pussy to identify yourself because youre afraid of any real accountability.

            How about you quit being a fucking douchebag, show up, and work for the people that pay you and you dont need to worry about people like me who arent afraid to get fraudulently arrested and open a case

          • Brad

            I pay for that building genius. Youre required to identify yourself thats my business I pay your mortage. I can find the lawyer to win that. Arrest me in the office for demanding your id it won’t add to YOUR case when it goes to court. What happens is youre going to lay hands on me because youre too much of a fucking pussy to identify yourself because youre afraid of any real accountability, and then proceed to hit me and throw me in a cell. When the video either does or doesnt show that in my body cam video, handheld camera video, and the buildings surveillance it will show you either tampered with evidence and erased footage from multiple cameras or there would be ample footage to prove my point. I really don’t care about the judges or how lierally everyone knows you jerk each other off every day(no revelation there officer badtouch cleverton) or your “Authority” to avoid doing what you really ARE required to do( i mean really what else are you trying to say, flexing your muscles through a keyboard declaring you can break the law because youre paid to enforce it, you feel big?). come knock on my door and think you can just turn around like “bye im not identifying” try me see you in court.

            How about you quit being a fucking douchebag, show up, work for the people that pay you instead of against them and do your job the one and only way youre suppose to(no less is acceptable youre just tyring to be not give a fuck at work the problem is people like that are making this shithole country go in the direction it is) and then you there’s no need to worry about people like me who arent afraid to get fraudulently arrested and open a case

            You don’t pay for anything you mentally challenged Anarchist.

          • Brad

            I pay more than a quarter of the money I earn in taxes fuck you WE all DO pay for the police station, the cruisers, the officers salaries homes their food and their pets are paid for by other people that actually work in MAKING money.

            And Im not an anarchist to say i am is simply ridiculous

            2/10 troll harder faggot

          • Uncle Trump-Trump University

            Like when Mack lost his virginity as part of joining his fascist militia. They passed him around like a cheap piñata.

          • Brad

            again look below. You say that but how do you counter that you are required to identify youself and that itself is the matter at hand. You can arrest me illegally but until you win you’re just one guy being a dick. Yo say you can win but are you sure? Youve arrested people for demanding to see your id? you can pull that off? Come try me

          • Brad

            now address what i said. You cant pretend i didnt say it when we go to court

            What happens is youre going to lay hands on me because youre too much of a fucking pussy to identify yourself because youre afraid of any real accountability, and then proceed to hit me and throw me in a cell. When the video either does or doesnt show that in my body cam video, handheld camera video, and the buildings surveillance what will show if that you either tampered with evidence and erased footage from multiple cameras or there would be ample footage to prove my point.

        Try and take my camera I’ll break your arm before you know what happened….

        • Mack Tackleton

          You go for my cuffs I would take it as you going for my gun, which would get you pepper sprayed or shot. Don’t forget I don’t come alone.

          • CEDUPZ

            that is typical, confused, and doesn’t understand anything, are you another street menace playing special person, cus you think all the others in the gang cover for you? That’s the problem, he was going for my gun, DUH, as teh guy is walking away, low standards, wild IMAGINATIONS, everything is a threat to a nutjob,low IQ, we are certainly doomed

          • David Rivers

            neither do we

        • Mack Tackleton

          You would have no chance. If you go to assault an officer of the law we will have back up and you will get a can of mace in the face.

          • Uncle Trump-Trump University

            Oh another “what if scenario” so you can carry on your violent predilections. Go see a shrink dimwit.

          • Uncle Trump-Trump University

            Why don’t you threaten me some more or are you not man enough.

          • Mack Tackleton

            I never said I would kill you, which would be a threat. I just want you and all liberals to die is all.

    Amazing how people are so easily manipulated with no fact finding free thought of you own. The police didn’t “raid” his house. They probably knocked on the door to try and get info about his neighbor, the intended house. This guy was over the top. Would you wanna be yelled & cursed at like that?! No justification for his behavior.

    • Brad

      wake me up at my house asking me questions youre getting exactly that response. No justification needed if you dont want that response dont be going around poking your nose where it doesnt belong(anybody’s business). You want to learn about my neighbors go fucking ask them.

      on the other hand those public servants are literally paid by that man to serve him. There is NO justification for them to flip them off just because “theyre human” try that shit on some DOUCHEBAG of a customer in retail and there is no excusing or
      appealing it youre fucking fired

    • Stoney Browning

      In my own house I will say what the fuck I want! Don’t like it? LEAVE!!!!

    The more seriouse problem is that those officers will be back at that house out of revenge. Even with an ill-gotten warrent. Where they can plant evidence.

  • Patrick H.

    A new attempt of revenue genaration. Im Mich they want to pass a law that if your dog dies in a hot car it would be a felony, thousand dollar fine, and with a felony you wouldn’t be able to own a gun. A love dogs have two of my own but not sure this should be a felony. Even cops forget the dog. Would it be a felony for an officer?

    • anarchyst

      It shouldn’t be a felony…
      No, cops are special…cops drive erratically all the time while they text on their computers, while driving…I have seen them nearly get into accidents because they were “texting”…reporting this to their superiors, I was told that they are “specially trained” to operate their computers while driving…yeah, right…
      Of course, they are “special” and can get away with just about anything.
      Some time ago, a state trooper was killed when his car overturned. Writing on a blog, I posed the simple question: “Was the trooper wearing his seat belt, in accordance with state law?” Many copsuckers came out of the woodwork criticizing ME for asking the question…”how dare you ask that question–the trooper is DEAD”, ignoring the fact that if he had been wearing his seat belt, he would be alive today…of course, an ordinary citizen not wearing a seat belt is subject to fines…

    • Dean Franklin

      no they have killed several cop dogs are better than humans peoples dogs belong to the gov as do their children and property they can do whatever they want to and if you dont let them you are unpatriotic
