Here on my home security cameras we have the jackbooted, Gestapo storm troopers of an Oklahoma county sheriff along with Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agents raiding my house. The only one home during this raid was my very ill 51 year old wife who was sleeping. They pounded on the door loudly for a couple of minutes until she was rudely awoken and able to answer the door. They charged through the door right past all 120 pounds her with no permission sought or given to search the premises with AR15 rifles at the ready, all SEVEN of the cops.
Notable evolutionary biologist, author, and speaker Richard Dawkins was recently invited to speak on the campus of the University of Oklahoma as part of the school's celebration of Charles Darwin. However, Oklahoma lawmakers are working to silence Dawkins with the passage of House Bill 1015 (RTF), which reads in part: '... the University of Oklahoma ... has invited as a public speaker on campus, Richard Dawkins of Oxford University, whose published opinions, as represented in his 2006 book "The God Delusion," and public statements on the theory of evolution demonstrate an intolerance for cultural diversity and diversity of thinking and are views that are not shared and are not representative of the thinking of a majority of the citizens of Oklahoma ...
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE 1ST SESSION OF THE 52ND OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE:
THAT the Oklahoma House of Representative strongly opposes the invitation to speak on the campus of the University of Oklahoma to Richard Dawkins of Oxford University, whose published statements on the theory of evolution and opinion about those who do not believe in the theory are contrary and offensive to the views and opinions of most citizens of Oklahoma...

I really hope you bring these monsters to court. This is insane. Oh, would I love to see this as a story on the news. Of course, the MSM will have nothing to do with it. Someone has to stick it to them!

Well, that's just fine they have a warrant. They had the time to do that but not their research.
OP: I don't mean to get too personal but I have come not to trust a lot of people at face value anymore. Is it possible we could have the name of your nephew to confirm your story? I apologize for asking but lately the truth is even harder to find than the money we gave the banks or Madoff.

No search warrant was presented or even asked for. They bullied their way in and did what they did. They did not leave as much as a business card, much less a search warrant. My attorney says they can can do so if they had an arrest warrant at my address. I am not claiming an illegal search; I am claiming cop stupidity in looking to arrest someone they have had for months and totally unnecessary terror tactics against an innocent citizen.
