Oh my so many people questioning whether or not its real! It seems that peoples "sceptic" skills are turned up a bit high. Questioning whether something is real or not is only important if the event is unlikely or unique. This is exactly how you would expect the FBI to act in that situation and even if it wasn't real this is happening every day all over the Country at other peoples front doors.

Sure , there are good cops and there are bad cops.....
But why dont you point out to me in this video just how these cops were treating her horrible or doing anything other then asking a few questions and being respectful?
Just curious, what crime are they investigating? According to the FBI Guy, there had been no crime, they were looking for potential crimes. Are there not actual crimes to investigate, like missing children, and people killed illegally by cops?

How many PEACE activists plead the 5th (on video tape no less) when asked if they know of any violence being planned??? Then post it on YouTube... with the knowledge that this could jeopardize she and her family by opening themselves up to # like this???

For christ's sake. I can't even watch that. Just a couple of minutes in and she is seriously getting on my nerves. They are there very simply to follow up a call they got - which they have to do. Yes the questions are stupid, but for # sake, just answer and get on with whatever you're doing
He asks if there is any intend to do damage or hurt anyone or whatever - yes, kind of a stupid question; though there are reasons for it. Even more stupid though is her answer - "So you think I, mother of five wonderful kids, am going to go and destroy property..." That's where I stopped it. What a #ing moronic answer. He did not imply that she was, he asked; being a mother is irrelevant; whether or not you think your children are 'wonderful' is irrelevant.
The rules she's putting up for dealing with them are good and helpful, but her conversation with them, as far as I saw, was just pathetic. They don't want to be there any more than she wants them to be there.
How the conversation should have gone was thusly:
"Hi, can I help you."
"FBI - we just wanted to make sure you weren't thinking of doing anything harmful after that protest you were at."
"Ok, bye then."
But no, she had to drag it out and turn it into - from what it seems from other posts - a political debate with them. Ridiculous.
I can imagine the thoughts of how ridiculous she seemed going through those FBI agents' heads. Still, at least she was polite - if needlessly sarcastic and mocking.
Kudos to her for pleading not to speak a word!

Is it just me, or did she seem like her goal was to upset them?
She constantly repeated their questions and kept reiterating the fact that she's a mom.... because it's totally unheard of for a mom to do illegal things/kill people.
Seriously, the guy gets a from me for not getting severely annoyed at her for acting like a 12 year old trying to prove her parents wrong by providing only one, loosely based reason for why she is right and sounding like a broken record repeating everything he says five times. Then, to top it off, she tries to create an unnecessary heated political debate when all she had to do was answer, or refuse to answer ONE question.
She was just trying to "get a rise" out of him, from the very beginning until the very end, she seemed to try to antagonize them into saying or doing something, anything youtube worthy. Regardless of why they're there, cooperate, don't be a douche because you're bored, it only takes a moment to answer a damn question, or even to just plead the "first" as she EVENTUALLY did.
I don't like people like that....
