10/27/13. California Cops Impose Police State Following Shooting. Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com
“If a cop or some other official of the government gets shot in your neighborhood, expect the imposition of a police state and the termination of the Bill of Rights. That’s what happened in Roseville, California, on Friday night following a shootout between a parolee (maybe an illegal alien too?) and law enforcement.
Because an officer was shot in the jaw, a fed immigration agent was shot in the leg, and other cops were lightly injured residents of the neighborhood were not allowed to return to their homes for more than 24 hours. They had to endure checkpoints and orders to evacuate their homes.
An AP article on the incident concentrates on the danger posed by the man wanted for parole violation and says nothing about the danger of cops engaged in a vendetta. Cops routinely shoot and kill people when they perceive a threat, even kids with toy guns and small dogs, and they are especially violent when one of their own is killed or wounded.
“The incident created scenes of panic and chaos in a typically quiet middle class suburb of about 120,000 that is 20 miles northeast of the state capitol,” the AP reports. “At least 15 homes were evacuated, and the area remained a crime scene late Saturday.”
An armed criminal certainly poses a danger, but so do “helicopters… circling overhead and armored vehicles and other police cars” converging on the area with irate cops on a mission to take down a man who shot members of one of the largest and most organized, heavily armed (some cops even get Pentagon cast offs) and dangerous gangs in the state.
This AP photo of a cop threatening a motorist with a weapon at a checkpoint says it all.”
10/27/13. Innocent citizens held at gunpoint in terrifying California checkpoints. policestateusa.com
“While Roseville police deployed SWAT and pointed rifles at innocent drivers, Sammy Duran had holed up in a nearby house. The inhabitants of that house escaped, and Duran proceeded to hold out in that house for several hours before ultimately surrendering hours later.
The manhunt was reminiscent of what was seen in the Los Angeles area earlier this year, where police sought an ex-cop named Christopher Dorner. During that manhunt, police shot up 3 innocent people in separate incidents, misidentifying their targets’ identity, gender, vehicle, and race.
Police show particular ferocity during manhunts involving one of their own was wounded by the suspect.
Duran was a dangerous suspect and wounded several officers in his apprehension. But danger is not a valid reason to treat innocent people like criminals and force them look down the barrel of a rifle while driving down a public street.
Duran was a Hispanic suspect with a shaved head. Clearly the motorist being threatened at the checkpoint in the photo above did not match Duran’s description. California Highway Patrol had no reason to stop him and certainly no reason to point their rifles at him. It is grossly negligent to point a rifle at anything you aren’t willing to destroy.
At any given time there are numerous wanted criminals on the loose all over the country. We must ensure that our rights aren’t discarded just because of fear and danger.”
