Did anyone else bother to cross reference this....all the stuff I found was related to drug sweeps and soberity check points. They were busting meth labs and marijuana growers. Which I would say is pretty good use of tax payers money. Also soberity checkpoints, I personally don't drink, and hate drunk driving, so if they throw someone in jail for a day to get sober and claim a victory arrest whatever man. It isn't like you guys don't gloat when you come across a juicy piece of news. I love this site but sometimes the line between logic and fantasy gets really blurred.

So let me get this right, there's a crackdown on criminal and criminal activity under what is described as a "an anti-crime and anti-terrorism initiative" and everyone is up in arms about it (and the guys at Infowars make little jokes about speeding terrorists ).
I assume had it simply been an "anti-crime initiative" everyone would be congratulating them on clearing the criminals from the streets and making everyone's lives safer?
Maybe the real question is why your police needed a 'special operation' in order to do what they're paid to do?

Are you agreeing with me or the Grizzly Bear?
Even though I disagree with Alex Jones methods or spreading his message, I've never seen him get anything wrong.

Karl + Jimmy, I could not agree more with your posts.
I am totaly against these sweeps, BUT, and its a big but, if they have to be done stop using that blooming 'terror' tag.
Its fear mongering at its worst, and reminds me of the old macarthy 'communists under the bed' paranoia of the years past.
want2believe,we can resist this police state they can't put all of us in the detention camps.

You know whats even scarier than all this going on! Is the fact that theres not a damned thing any of you or I can do about it. When it come time for them to come in to you home and look around or even take your weapons, there still wont be a damned thing we can do. If you resist pray you dont die. I want answers to this, and I am scared to death that there isnt one. God help us

I know a lot of people who lived martial law in Quebec in the 70s, and the police searching everyone in the streets, entering home of anyone they wanted, ransacking... checkpoints everywhere... it sures looks like today's america.. without the army. But eh, now your police is militarized, so it's the same thing.

Nobody will find anything to corroborate anything other than what you mentioned. The sites these articles come from cater to people who want their stories to be factual so badly they will not even consider verifying what they are reading.
If you watch these sites they parrot each other and have one major thing in common, they are Spin Meister's. A drug raid becomes "martial law", arresting felony fugitives becomes a violation of constitutional rights and don't even consider finding credible sources who back up the fantasy claims made.
The number of people brainwashed by Jones, Prison Planet and their minions is incredible.
All common sense goes out the door and I doubt they even realize that they are being led around by the nose by people who don't even believe the garbage they write.
Just push that donate button or buy a fiction book passed off as fact and that is what they are after. No way Jones or any of these confidence men believe what is on their sites is accurate.
They take factual stories, flower them up with words like "Marshal Law" or "Violation of Rights" and wait for the counters to click and the Pay Pal money to come in. I'd bet this ends up being another routine roundup of scumbags and drunk drivers on the road behind the wheel of deadly weapons.
People here talk about dis-info-agents and never seem to realize that is exactly what people like Jones and his followers are. Truth never enters into the equation. When sensible, intelligent people see their nonsense it guarantees they will never believe the true problems out there. They just see the lies and exaggerations and assume its all nonsense.

But on-the-other-hand, what the law enforcement is actually doing is what they are supposed be doing anyways! They are supposed to hand out traffic tickets.
The Coast Guard is supposed to inspect boats. The drug cops are supposed to bust drug operations. And I would HOPE that when a criminal is caught committing big money moving crimes like drugs that his connections are checked against international links.
So it begs the question: Aren't the cops supposed to already be doing this?
I would answer that the answer to that question is, "Yes." So again, what could the point of this "Operation Sudden Impact" be, really?
It's social conditioning. It's conditioning American Citizens to accept the reasoning that ALL CRIME has the potential to be "terrorist" related. Once Americans have submitted to that, then the next logical step is to use this same claim of "terrorism" potential in everyday crimes as a justification of torturing "suspects" to stop the "next big attack".
It's not as far off as you think folks. We are within a hare's breath of losing it all. As a society, we've already accepted torture at Guantanamo to stop terrorism. Well, then look at this story and the message it is communicating (testing out).
Only we can save ourselves from this insanity.
