The growing militarization of U.S. police

Thousands of SWAT-type raids changing face of law enforcement
By: James Simpson

As politicians exploit the Newtown tragedy to promote new laws to restrict firearms and implement universal background checks that could lead to gun registration and confiscation, another parallel trend– namely, the increasing militarization of law enforcement, most visibly demonstrated by the growing use of massive, SWAT-type raids on businesses and individuals, sometimes with federal involvement or authorization – is heightening concerns that America is moving toward a police state.

Mountain Pure SWAT raid: The Movie

Mountain Pure Water, LLC is headquartered on Interstate 30 just outside the town of Little Rock, Arkansas. The company manufactures and distributes beverage containers, spring water, fruit drinks, and teas. In January 2012, about 50 federal agents, led by Small Business Administration Office of Inspector General Special Agent Cynthia Roberts and IRS Special Agent Bobbi Spradlin, swooped in, guns drawn. Without explanation they shut down plant operations, herded employees into the cafeteria, and confined them to the room for hours. They could not so much as use the bathroom without police escort. Cell phones were confiscated and all Internet and company phones were disabled.

The Rising Tsunami of the Police State

The Rising Tsunami of the Police State

Saturday night, March 17. Dateline 8 PM PDT. I received an email from a reader alerting me to the Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness signed by President Obama on March 16. To tell the truth, I thought it was a hoax. Other than The Examiner, I could find no reference to the EO anywhere but on the official White House Press release site.

So what to do? I had already completed the Sunday Buzz but wait, I just had to include this bit of breaking news. And so, for the next twenty four hours, like many of you, I sought to make sense of the fact that there has been no main stream coverage of this event.

I do not consider myself an advocate of conspiracies. But as I consider this wholesale cannibalization of our freedom and of the Constitution, I begin to wonder whether there is some grand plan. Perhaps there is some master puppeteer poised to pull our strings when and if the rise to elitism reaches the pinnacle.

So with much personal angst, I have begun to believe that the rank and file citizens of the United States of America are being herded down the path to a Police State. Or, better put, will soon be running from the rising tsunami of the police state.

What is a Police State?

According to Wikipedia:

The Rising Tsunami of the Police State

A police state is one in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.

The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.

So let me get this right: A police state occurs when the government takes over control of the country by restricting the freedom of the population. Residents of the police state are required to obey the occupying authorities and may be punished for not doing so. They may be required to perform non-military, government mandated duties serving at the pleasure of the chief executive, the military and the PTB. They may be detained indefinitely if considered a threat, rendering the protections of the constitution null and void. And finally, their goods and their lives become the property of the government.

This sounds to me like the essence of the the National Defense Resources Preparedness order. The same order that gives the US Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and water and even labor resources by decree. While supposedly this will be done under the auspices of national defense and national security, the order is not limited to wartime implementation. Quite the contrary. One of the order’s functions includes the command and control of resources in during peacetime.

Welcome to a New Flavor of Uncertain Times

The groundswell of outcry to this new order (and by the way, many of you said NDAA was just a warm-up) has so far landed on deaf ears from the main stream media. On the other hand, you have to be blind not to see that the leading events (Obamacare, mandatory immunizations, bogus economic statistics, endorsement and reward for corporate greed and malfeasance, and the insidious infringement of personal rights) has been leading up to this, one large step at a time.

No one is immune. Citizens are already being spied upon and families that prepare are being tagged as “persons of interest” or even declared mentally incompetent. It is no wonder that we are seeing runs on ammunition and empty shelves at the local Wal-mart.

The big question is why. I have a few ideas but perhaps the reasons were best articulated by Brandon Turbeville writing for Activist Post:

Detroit TSA Security Theater

Sam Dodson of OTN did an excellent job as a real journalist — as opposed to a corporate Mockingbird script-reader — when he went to the Detroit Metro airport and confronted the TSA on the Gestapo tactics they employ in airports in order to cow the public into submission.

The video starkly reveals how airports have become locked-down Stasi zones where passengers are followed around by uniformed agents and armed thugs with bomb-sniffing dogs if they arouse the slightest bit of suspicion.
Dodson gives these authoritarian functionaries no quarter and confronts them on their arrogant police state tactics at every turn. He refuses to turn off his cell phone camera, peppers them with questions, and repeatedly objects to their assumed authority and petty school yard bully power trips.

An excellent job. More citizen-journalists need to produce these kind of videos and become a righteous thorn in the side of the state as it continues its concerted effort to turn the nation into a police state hell hole under the pretense of protecting us from patsies and dupes the government ludicrously claims are terrorists with fizzle bombs tucked in their underwear.

Think Government Is Corrupt? You May Face 10 Years In Jail

Subversives who think government is corrupt and should be controlled by the people face 10 years in prison and a $25,000 dollar fine if they fail to register with authorities in South Carolina, in another chilling example of how free speech and dissent is being criminalized in America.

The state’s “Subversive Activities Registration Act” is now officially on the books and mandates that “Every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States … shall register with the Secretary of State.”

Of course, the right to overthrow a government that has become corrupt, abusive and completely unrepresentative of its electorate is enshrined in the Declaration of Independence – that’s how America came to be a Republic in the first place – advocating or teaching that the people should “control” the government via their elected representatives is a basic function of a democratic society, but this law effectively makes it a terrorist offense.

A PRIMER ON “MARTIAL LAW”

Posted by truthpills on 2009/09/01

NewsWithViews.com

It is difficult these days not to come upon some pessimistic patriotic commentator expressing the fear that something called “martial law” may soon be imposed on this country, as the General Government’s response to a new “terrorist attack”, or to the economic and social chaos arising out of a collapse of the monetary and banking systems, or to some other dire event that frightens hapless Americans into trading a sure and certain loss of their liberties for a dollop of conjectural safety.

An optimistic patriot might scoff at such fears. But both pessimists and optimists typically share the same implicit first premise: namely, that the form of “martial law” they have in mind is legitimate. Most of the time, this is a rather glaring and dangerous error.

In legal analysis, definitions of terms make all the difference. And “martial law” can be defined in at least four ways:

Pentagon Cyber Command seen as threat to civil liberties

Posted by truthpills on 2009/06/17

By Muriel Kane
Published: June 12, 2009

The Obama administration’s plan to create a Pentagon Cyber Command to conduct both defensive and offensive cyberwarfare is arousing concern about potential threats to privacy and civil liberties.

A new report in the New York Times warns that even though President Obama has promised that protections will be built into the cyberdefense strategy, such protections will be difficult to implement in practice.

“Much of the new military command’s work is expected to be carried out by the National Security Agency, whose role in intercepting the domestic end of international calls and e-mail messages after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, under secret orders issued by the Bush administration, has already generated intense controversy,” the Times explains. “There is simply no way, the officials say, to effectively conduct computer operations without entering networks inside the United States, where the military is prohibited from operating, or traveling electronic paths through countries that are not themselves American targets.”

FCC’s Warrantless Household Searches Alarm Experts

FCC’s Warrantless Household Searches Alarm Experts
* By Ryan Singel
* May 21, 2009

You may not know it, but if you have a wireless router, a cordless phone, remote car-door opener, baby monitor or cellphone in your house, the FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time of the day or night in order to inspect it.

That’s the upshot of the rules the agency has followed for years to monitor licensed television and radio stations, and to crack down on pirate radio broadcasters. And the commission maintains the same policy applies to any licensed or unlicensed radio-frequency device.

“Anything using RF energy” we have the right to inspect it to make sure it is not causing interference, says FCC spokesman David Fiske. That includes devices like Wi-Fi routers that use unlicensed spectrum, Fiske says.

Colorado Police Plan to Take Blood from “Uncooperative Suspects”

Posted by truthpills on 2009/05/23

One Colorado police chief is preparing to launch a controversial practice in the fight against drunken driving by seeking search warrants that would give his officers the power to have blood drawn from uncooperative suspects.

To Chief Bruce Kozak of the Avon Police Department, the blood in a suspected drunken driver’s veins is no different than a gun next to a murder victim — evidence that must be collected by investigators.

“This is actually a search warrant to search a person for evidence of a crime,” Kozak said of the plan he intends to implement this summer. “We believe the blood, of course, of a suspected drunken driver is very important evidence.”
