Missouri Police Chief Ken Burton is frustrated with the attention that the You Tube video that witnessed his SWAT team conducting a drug raid last February. Within days of the video hitting the web, Burton was forced to hold several press conferences along with laying out reforms to the way SWAT raids will be conducted in the future. Chief Ken Burton's response .." I Hate the Internet "...reason.com... It seems to me that you can hear gun fire followed by dogs yelping in pain soon after the SWAT team enters the house in the following video

The government of the U.S is quickly learning that the internet is a great tool for the people. No I'm not against the government. But look at New China and see how restricted the internet is there.

Oh no, the poor Police Chief is frustrated that they now have to explain their actions?
What is this world coming to when the police and swat have to answer for the horrible things they tend to do?

Bunch of scumbags that can't be bothered to do their jobs properly here.
I hope they all get what they deserve.
I'm not against police, law enforcement or protection etc. but this is just out of control.


Btw, the "reason" link isn't working for me. Coming up as page not found.

I'm a member of a very large forum (not quite as large as ATS) that like to talk about...adult american recreational activities...shall we say.

I think just about everyone at that site sent that police department e-mails of disgust.

Seems like the proper reaction.

Good.


We should make it our personal responsibility to make any and all corrupt government officials feel the exact same way.

Here is the solution:

www.outpost-of-freedom.com...

Bear in mind, the guy who wrote this has been in JAIL ever since, just for coming up with this idea! That is how AFRAID TPTB are of this!



A few months ago, I had a truly and quite literally "revolutionary" idea, and I jokingly called it "Assassination Politics": I speculated on the question of whether an organization could be set up to legally announce that it would be awarding a cash prize to somebody who correctly "predicted" the death of one of a list of violators of rights, usually either government employees, officeholders, or appointees. It could ask for anonymous contributions from the public, and individuals would be able send those contributions using digital cash. I also speculated that using modern methods of public-key encryption and anonymous "digital cash," it would be possible to make such awards in such a way so that nobody knows who is getting awarded the money, only that the award is being given. Even the organization itself would have no information that could help the authorities find the person responsible for the prediction, let alone the one who caused the death.


This type of thing is why they FEAR the internet, and wish to control and censor it! And that's why every single one of us should fight to keep the internet free!

That article you listed is a terrible thing though.
Kind of like that old saying, "two wrongs don't make a right"
Firstly, I don't think he could have been too knowledgable about the law. Hiring a hitman is what it would be doing and yes, the person doing the hiring is accountable. And encrypted or not, they would still figure out who/what/where etc by sting operations. (that's if they could do their jobs
)
I understand the whole reason behind this was to say basically, If they fear what citizens will/can do to them when they are so blantantly in the wrong. Then they will be more cautious of their actions. This is probably true but a horrid way to go about it. imo
I didn't read the entire article (way too long and just out there for me)
Who's to say what's wrong and deserves death? Isn't that why we have judges? Don't they often go corrupt? So, why wouldn't a normal citizen?
But if he's been in jail since making this. I can't say I'm all that shocked.

But yes, I do agree with the idea that they need to worry about the ramifications of their actions. I'm so tired of this, we're the police, we can do what we want mentality.
The police as well as the rest of the governments were made to be 'servants' to the public. We pay their paychecks and that's how it should be. Somewhere down the line it got twisted and I don't know if there's any going back.

I strongly think if this was on the news, people would realize that their internet is being threatened.

When I saw this video a week or so ago I immediately googled the police station's phone number and left a message telling them where such actions will direct them in the after life. Took 3 min tops, Thanks internet.

You obviously missed the thread last week about this video. Two dogs killed and a family traumatized over a gram of weed and a bowl. They screwed up. Period.

Edit to add, I guess the guy also got charged for child endangerment for having drugs in the house with a child. However, kicking in doors and spraying bullets is PERFECTLY fine because hey, gotta get those bad people.

Bad training but I guess cops would still be bad if this happened and the owner of the house was holding a child prostitution ring.

The stupidity of the above statement cannot be overstated. You are "presumed" innocent until proven guilty. The police cannot "ASSUME" that you have understood your Miranda rights. (as they did in the video) If dogs were expected to be on site, then an animal control officer should also have been present.

THE POLICE ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT AND ARE NOT THERE TO ASSESS GUILT, this is what courts are for.

The nature of the crime doesn't affect the procedural aspects of the event. He could have been accused of manufacturing any number of things, this doesn't excuse the police behavior. The reason the accused have these rights, is because ANYONE can be accused. Wait till they come for you, and see how suddenly important your rights are.

To assign guilt based on the suspicion of a crime is reminiscent of Soviet Russia. If this is acceptable, why bother with a court system at all. Simply enable the police to accuse, convict and punish and save everyone a lot of money and time. Oh wait..they did that in a movie... Judge Dredd.

If killing dogs are the eggs you justify breaking to make an omelet, I bet your omelets taste terrible.
