The level of violence against Americans by local law enforcement grows every day. It's out of control:
"Six children from Chicago are gonna remember this night as one of their most traumatizing experiences. The kids, aged 11 months to 13 years at the time, were rehearsing songs for the church choir with their grandmother Charlene Holly when eight armed officers burst through the door and started aiming guns at them, yelling “get on the ground!”.
"One of the cops even asked Charlene to show the 11 month old’s hands to them at gunpoint. When she asked for the reason of the raid, she was handed a warrant for Sedgwick M. Reavers, the tenant of the apartment one floor above the Hollys. The warrant clearly stated ‘The second floor apartment located at 10640 S. Prairie Ave. A yellow brick two flat building with the numbers 10640 on the front of the building.’ but the cops broke into the first floor apartment, cursing at the minors and telling them “This is what happens when your grandma sells crack”. After the raid, Charlene found their family dog Samson dead in the upstairs laundry room, where he was presumably dragged to with a dog pole by one of the officers. The family kept Samson in the basement and he couldn't have reached the laundry room on his own."
Fort Worth Police Shoot Before Asking Questions Killing Innocent 73 Year Old Man. "Are we supposed to understand that proper police procedure is to shoot someone before talking to them or finding out who they are and what they're doing? When did the two officers identify themselves – as they were shooting or before?"
"In the second case, which occurred in the Houston area, TX DPS Trooper Nathaniel Turner pulled over Brandy Hamilton for allegedly speeding in Brazoria County on Memorial Day 2012. Hamilton was driving home with her friend Alexandra Randle after a day at the beach. After being taken to the side of Highway 288, Hamilton asked the officer "Can I please put on my dress, because I have on a swimsuit" to which Trooper Turner replied "Don't worry about that, come on out here." Trooper Turner then tells the woman that his partner "is about to get up close and personal with some womanly parts."
"Texas Trooper Jennie Bui then arrived and sexually violated both women with the same pair of gloves. "Do you know how violated I feel?" Hamilton pleads and screams in the video. The Daily News notes "Yells can be heard as the female trooper shoves her gloved finger inside one woman." Houston attorney Allie Booker, who represents the two women, says her office has been contacted by numerous additional victims who have suffered the same fate at the hands of Texas Troopers."
Eyewitness Records Santa Ana Officer Shoot, Kill Unarmed Homeless Man. I didn't find a follow up to this rather recent murder, but too many homeless people have untreated mental problems. Shooting them first is unacceptable - especially since, in this case, the man was unarmed.
According to witnesses and staff, that 95-year old man was sitting in a wheel chair. It was murder. Five - seven hot shot coppers go after a 95-year old man who didn't want medical treatment that was being forced on him. That is a matter for the courts, not trigger happy local cops. The staff begged the cops to let them calm down an obviously agitated old man. Instead, the cops killed him.
Honor Student Inexplicably Beaten by Police “I Awoke Spitting My Teeth Out On the Ground”. After being told twice by witnesses that young woman had nothing to do with two other girls fighting in the street, they beat her anyway. The two girls fighting who started the mess weren't even charged.
"Police were arresting the man “taking video” of an arrest that he witnessed as he was walking his dog. Another bystander got the arrest and the dog shooting on camera and uploaded it to YouTube and set off a firestorm. The video has been viewed over 5 million times and has prompted angry citizens to gather signatures that were delivered to Hawthorne Police in conjunction with a rally July 27...But the Hawthorne shooting is not an isolated incident.
"In Leander, Texas, a family dog was shot when police raided the wrong home in search of a man with an expired vehicle registration. A 6-year-old witnessed the incident, prompting questions about both policy and practice for officers shooting dogs. Retraining is one response by police departments, including in the Denver area after officers shot families’ pets. Few would argue that police officers have every right to fire on a vicious dog if their life is threatened. But many of the cases appear to be “shoot first, ask questions later.”
"My brother spent the last eight minutes of his life pleading, begging for his life," said Christopher Silva, 31, brother of the dead man. He said he's talked to witnesses but did not see the incident himself. At about midnight, Ruben Ceballos, 19, was awakened by screams and loud banging noises outside his home. He said he ran to the left side of his house to find out who was causing the ruckus.
"When I got outside I saw two officers beating a man with batons and they were hitting his head so every time they would swing, I could hear the blows to his head," Ceballos said. Silva was on the ground screaming for help, but officers continued to beat him, Ceballos said. After several minutes, Ceballos said, Silva stopped screaming and was no longer responsive. "His body was just lying on the street and before the ambulance arrived one of the officers performed CPR on him and another one used a flashlight on his eyes but I'm sure he was already dead," Ceballos said."
The man was "possibly" intoxicated, so the murdered him.
Those are but a tiny sampling of police brutality and murder by cop anyone can find on the Internet. Drug raids on wrong houses; terrorize the family, kill the family dog. No knock raids on the wrong house; kill residents, then get your union rep and keep your mouth shut.
The number of incidents where local law enforcement have terrorized families or outright murdered American citizens is escalating. What changed the game from Officer Brown being the good guy in the neighborhood to bully? The paramilitarization of law enforcement. The Outlaw Congress stealing from you to give money to local police departments to purchase things like used NATO vehicles. It really all began after the OKC bombing - along with the blatant lies about what happened that day.
Ask the person on the street: Do you know what Posse Comitatus is? I'm betting 1 in 10,000 adult aged Americans has absolutely no clue. They should because it's been chipped away at for decades as well as military being used for domestic disasters like Katrina. Please do take the time to read this column: Battle Plan For The Fifty States:
"Go ahead, print out the newspaper and read it. If this doesn't give you the daytime version of pavor nocturnus, then you don't grasp the severity of the problem. We are seeing more and more domestic spying on Americans, no knock searches killing innocent people, warrant less searches on flimsy probable cause and 'civilian check points' on our roads and highways. The misnamed 'Patriot Act' continues to be abused by federal dragoons. This is NOT the America thousands spilled their blood for on the battle fields during the Revolutionary War."
I wrote it five years ago next month. The situation has worsened and will continue downhill unless the people stop voting for the same incumbents for the Outlaw Congress and state capitols in the 2014 PRIMARIES. If you wait until November, it's all over. And, work with our state legislatures to reconstitute the constitutional militia. It is all that is standing between us and totalitarian government - both local and federal.
Personally, I don't have a problem with our sheriff and local law enforcement. I live in a small town in W. Texas where everyone seems to know everyone else. But, even in a small town, police corruption and brutality is becoming more common. People are being conditioned to accept absurd levels of fire power for routine events:
How many more deaths or maimed bodies by out of control local law enforcement before the people go after the solution, not another Band Aid?
How many more news items or columns need to be written before the people go after the solution, not another Band Aid?
For more than two decades, I've been in the trenches full time. A long, learning experience. I see, as William Wallace said in the movie, Braveheart - a whole army of my fellow country men who want to live free of tyranny. The only problem, few in that 'whole army' seem to want to implement the solution. They keep fighting the first part of the Second Amendment while ignoring the critical meat of the second part.
Americans are armed to the teeth. 'Private' militia are in many states. So what? 'Private' militia have zero legal authority to do anything. Back in 2006, I wrote a column about yet another American being arrested for alleged gun ownership violations: No More Angel Shamaya's. Has anything changed? No. Why? Because it seems to me, too many are content to simply complain about the situation or they refuse to fully understand what the constitutional militia is and why it is so important. It seems to me, too many simply won't take the time to get educated as many of us have since Dr. Edwin Vieira began his relentless crusade to get all of us on the same page back in 2005. What's everyone waiting for?
Contrary to the jocks who send me emails telling me "we don't need the stinking state", yes, we do and it is up to all of us, as we tried to do here in Texas to get to our state legislators who refused to listen (we're not finished). Make them understand they will not be spared for the next election primary. It's the only language most of them understand. Not all, but most.
By the way, someone sent me email about Gov. Jan Brewer of AZ signing a bill into law that would create a militia; that was April 2011, SB 1145. I'm sorry, but it meant nothing. There was no command structure or anything else. This past May, she signed another one; SB 1495. Again, there's no command structure and Brewer can put "anyone in charge". I tried to find the bill for the 2013 session, but it isn't listed in Senate bills.
How many more will die because of out of control law enforcement with too many of them now acting like we're the enemy? Do you know what part the constitutional militia would play in stopping it? What about the tens of thousands of Mexican and Latin American gang members running rough shod over our communities? Natural disasters will continue to happen like Katrina and mega hurricane Sandy, yet look what keeps happening over and over and over? Non-prepared people who then cry for "someone" to help them. The dependency mentality instead of self-reliance.
Think the "wrong house" can't happen to your family? Think again. It happened to the people in the stories above and you can bet they thought it would "never happen to them", either.
It's happening all over the country. The constitutional militia is the only solution to homeland security and it is OUR duty and obligation to get it activated through our state legislatures. If people think police brutality is going to stop because some concerned citizens complain, think again. Too many local law enforcement are drunk on power and they mean to exert that power over you and possibly your family. Think police brutality will go away over a few lawsuits -- the hundreds of thousands up to millions in settlements - think again. And, by the way -- those big settlements in police brutality cases come from YOUR tax dollars. Money that should be spent to better where you live and work.
This IS our top priority along with the power of the purse.

Constitutional Homeland Security: A Call for Americans to Revitalize the Militia of the Several States (188 pgs - received all 5 stars in rating)
"Presently, our republic is seething with citizen discontent on a range of important issues: the burgeoning police state under a proto-fascist "homeland security" banner...the cultural and economic threat of unchecked Mexican immigration...the increasing strictures on our God-given right (reiterated by the Second Amendment)...the hokey "War on Terror".
"How in the world can the citizens of these 50 sovereign States, return to the liberty and self-government that we supposedly assured ourselves when "We the People" assented to the U.S. Constitution as our means of limiting the Leviathan State? In this trenchant little guidebook for American citizens, constitutional scholar Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr leads us back to the rule of law, step by constitutional step! What an erudite, plain-speaking, and eminently "do-able" plan the author presents!"
"The Sword And Sovereignty, and the movie which is even now growing out of that book, together bring an encouraging grasp on the supreme solution to save our country from the jaws of statist socialism and power-elite fascism – a full return to the Constitution with emphasis on the Second Amendment and with special emphasis on reinstating the Constitutional Militia of the several States as the way to place the power of American governance back into the hands of the people. The Constitution reveals clearly that our security as a free state rests with the Militia. Dr. Vieira’s book brings to life a resurrected understanding and renewed acceptance of our duty as self-governing citizens in a Republic of law, and shows us how and why we are to accept individual responsibility for our security as a nation."
The Purse and The Sword -- A must watch for everyone AND your state representatives.
Eight hours that gives America constitutional solutions instead of more Band Aids. Every state legislator, member of Congress and adults in this country need to watch this incredible presentation. If money is a bit tight, share the cost with friends. Have your group purchase a copy, get together and watch it in, say, two hour increments.
If you can, get a second copy to snail mail or deliver in person to the district office of your state rep or senator. Have your group sign a letter to your state legislator with the DVD asking him/her for a commitment to watch the entire presentation because you all will be following up.

Follow up is critical. Present a list of questions. That will tell you whether or not your state rep bothered to watch the entire presentation. 2014 is an election year. They're all quite aware of how angry thinking Americans are all across this country.
"This seminar featuring Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr. is the single greatest presentation regarding the Constitutional remedies and powers available to both the people and the national government to deal with our economy and homeland security challenges. Dr. Vieira presents his "visual Constitution" to make plainly clear what should and must be done for our nation to deal with these present and ever-increasing crisis.
