    LOL, JohnnyRobotic.... Good observation!

    I do wonder why SWAT guys need to wear ski masks. What exactly is the purpose of that?

    Well then they should seriously consider why it is that the public would want to strike back at them.

    Call me naive, but I don't believe our country has any business with a "secret" force of gestapo-type attack teams. They need to be accountable to the public just like any other cop. That guy in the picture is a classic JBT, and we should ALL be afraid of a government who uses these tactics.

    This is very indicative of the way our government is operating these days. They want us frightened.... they want us to always be subservient to them. They have forgotten that their role is to serve us.

    I don't think it's the public that these guys are worried about. It's the criminals. It's the same theory of concealing the identity of undercover agents.

    I do agree with you, though, that these guys should be held accountable, as should everyone involved in law enforcement, all the way up to the hightest levels. They cannot be allowed to be above the law. A "secret" gestapo force is a scary thought indeed and must not be allowed to take place in this country.

    There are certain things which "go with the territory," both for people subject to this thread and others. I am sure that any in one of those positions realize this and it really is not a big thing. It does always concern you, though, when it happens even though you realize it can and does

    As a long-time Prosecutor and Jurist, dating from the early sixties, I have had an unlisted phone number, that is changed frequently since even an unlisted one lasts only so long, to help prevent the threats of death to me or family members from someone getting out of prison and bent on revenge. I have had my children targets of possible kidnappings and bodily harm from school and other places other than home. Even had one diehard knock on the neighbor's door in apartments long ago just to find out what school the kids went to and times.

    The cops should realize that it does go with the territory and take precautions but not get paranoid, just as we did. It can be handled several ways if overt or just let alone if it turns out to be just words.

    I think the mask plays two parts ,the main one is intimidation ,the second is to remain anonymous ,but most of these guys are on the streets daily and remain unmasked ,and and far as a criminal wanting revenge ,the mask don’t hide the court reports and access to find out who was on the arresting team ,so if they really want to know who came through the door they can find out

    And it is not very likely there is a group going after a swat team because they recognize one of them on the tv . total intimidation

    homeland security at its best

    We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

    Bully tactics, intimidation, and fear are the weapons of the weak minded.

    I am a citizen of the United States of America. I am loyal to my country and the constitution that it is built upon. We the people have the right to change what we want because this nation is the navel of our being and essence as Americans. Change is inevitable may God guide that change in the best possible direction.

    God Bless this Nation. Now give me an AMEN!!!!!!

    Gotta disagree here...these are that tactics used ON the weak minded. Use these tactics on someone with a pair of marbles and you have got yourself an old fashioned insurrection.
    The way things are going you can smell it in the air.
    Are you ready if it happens?

    Yes, but he who controls the "legal definition" of who is and who is not a criminal.....controls everyone!

    There was a disabled man here locally, who had gotton on some form of disability from the government. He was being assisted by a home heathcare nurse every few days. This home health nurse was bothered by the fact that this man had a gunsafe, so she asked him about it. He told her that he used to collect old lever actions and other collectors grade firearms.
    I assume it was her that was the informer?...... Out comes the sheriffs department with a search warrant....a search warrant for...FOOD! Yes folks....there is some kind of law that if you're on whatever government assistance this guy was on, you CANNOT have more than $1500 worth of food in the house!!!!
    Deep freezers with beef, deer meat, pork and chicken can add up in value pretty quick......ESPECIALLY when "the government" is the one who is "in control" of saying what this meat is worth!
    Those deer steaks could be as high as $18 a pound....and deer jerkey if we were to compare to jerkey in the local convenience store would run as high as a dollar a strip...or $50 a pound!!!

    So this guy is charged with a felony charge for supposedly defrauding the government, his guns are confiscated, he is prosecuted ect ect ect.......

    Now you tell me....this man, who "by the way" is a veteran.....IS HE A CRIMINAL? According to the prosecutor he is......

    How about the people who are prosecuted/persecuted for having filed income tax returns with mistakes on them, even if it was done by a CPA......huh?......Is that person a criminal?

    How about the Husband and father whos wife is told by her woman friends that if she goes down and falsely claims that he abuses her that she can get him out of the house easier....infact she won't even have to be the one that has to tell him that she does'nt want to be married to him anymore......the sheriffs deputys will do it for her as they're hauling his @$$ to jail.....

    You say they need some kind of "Proof" that he's abusive? NOPE NOT ARROUD HERE THEY DON'T!!

    In my way of thinking, a "criminal" is someone who steals things from other people, hurts or kills other people without cause, and does other morally wrong things......Not someone who is in error on their financial records or their storage of food or even guns......

    And as far as that Citizen stuff....I consider myself an American National....I was born here....I have a right to be here, to live my life and enjoy it.....basicly the pursuit of life liberty and happyness.....
    I may techinclly be a citizen, but it is nothing i have ever been proud me, a "citizen" of the government, is a "servant" of that government.....I happen to consider myself free.....

    Please note that i love this country and its people just as much as Y'all, I feel the same way Y'all do about those who serve our country in the military, but i do not have any love for our government.

    This Government does not respect our constitution and the bill of me this government is something different that what it originally started out as......therefore it is not the same entity....
    It is now a my definition...a "thieve's guild" so to speak......not a represenative Republic anymore...

    Those who are in power will try to exert their will upon others. They have nothing but a weak mind bent on control. Those with power are corruptable. That single mindedness is their weakness and the Achiles heel of the corruptable. The love of power and its intoxicatating potion is that which causes a hollowness in a mans soul.

    Hold until relieved. Freedom will prevail. Hold fast.

    Mike, you've certainly given some good examples of a legal system run amok. We've got to get back to the principals our founding fathers established when they set up this great country.
