In the 19070’s SWAT teams were estimated to be used just a few hundred times per year, now we are looking at over 40,000 military style “knock and announce” police raids a year.
The police presence in this country is being turned into a military with a clearly defined enemy, anyone who questions the establishment. Most of these raids are for substances that the state deems illegal that only harm those who voluntarily choose to partake in them.
During this ‘war’ on personal choice these incompetent tyrants frequently get the wrong house and even kill innocent people and the unchecked irresponsible institution remains.
Ignorance, belligerence, and authority make for a dangerous and lethal force that indiscriminately lays waste to everything it touches; as was the case with the Harte family.
The Harte family was raided because of the state’s idiotic ‘war’ on a plant. The irony here is that the plant this family was raided for is completely legal, it was tea.
The troglodytes in the Johnson County Police Department thought that tea leaves were marijuana and subsequently dispatched an army of thugs armed with AR-15s to ransack this unsuspecting family. Thankfully one of these jackboots didn’t let loose a round and kill anyone.
After the raid the Harte’s wanted to find out why costumed gang members tore apart their home and were told they could not. They were forced to hire an attorney and $25,000 later, they finally found out that the the reason they were held hostage by thugs was because these thugs were horribly incompetent.
