I feel you. And at the end of the day, if that was happening in my community, I would have let them in, let them do their thing and I too would have cheered...
I am just thinking of this on a much deeper level.
For instance, lets imagine this happened in East Baltimore... Okay? Not an affluent community with boats and huge homes... So, the cops are combing Greenmount Avenue right around North Avenue, and entering row homes and project complexes in their big search... You are trying to tell me that sh** would not have gone south in 5 seconds? I mean, with all the drugs and illegal guns and what have you in those communities, if you think there wouldn't have been firefights with civilians, or police or innocent people killed or shot... I disagree.
I mean, they couldnt get thousands of people out of new orleans when imminent death was on the way....
Im just saying everyone is lucky that this went down in a coastal boat community with lots of money and love for the cops.... You repeat this situation in the inner city in many other cities, people would have been dead. People would not have cooperated. Doors would have been slammed in faces, and then what? You enter with force for obstruction of justice.... You kick in the door and there are 4 heroin junkies slumped over high on the floor. what do you do with them? Arrest them? Make them wait out front? Leave them inside. Then one of them wakes up, sees a dude with a machine gun and pulls out and starts shooting....
Im very happy everything worked out well... But like I said, try this in Queensbridge NY, or in East/West/North or South Baltimore. Or south DC.... Or Newark... and the list goes on and on....
So I will give you this: Martial law works in white neighborhoods, in affluent communities with white collar people.... That I agree with. But once the precedent is set, you gotta roll with it. And trust me when I tell you, sh** could have got all kinds of ugly, no?
This is how it would be in my neighborhood. I'm upstairs with binoculars and .223 sniper rifle and the wife on the first floor with the dogs and shotgun. Neighbors with either Aks or ARs. Cops roll in. 'See anything? Us, 'Not yet'. Cops 'let us know if you do, have a nice day'.
Hey NYNJ! A little history lesson for you.
Hitler burned down his own parliament building and blamed it on Poland.
After that he started creating laws close to our Patriot Act and NDAA, and convinced his people that it was to protect them from Communist threats.
IF YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR HISTORY YOU ARE CONDEMNED TO REPEAT IT!
“It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.” John Curran
is it true that all the officials from Nazi German actually escaped to Argentina and formed Monsanto??
Oh, you have a good one there. I am going to post that on Alex Jones!
BTW, I always dislike comparisons between Hitler and Obama, as archy may have been implying. This is a popular one that is incorrectly thrown around: http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/disarm.asp
Hitler only wanted to disarm the non-Aryan world, and actually loosened the gun laws for natural born Germans.
