'Just Keeping You Safe': The Cheka Checks In


www.infowars.com

“What are you doing here?” Paul asked the armed stranger who had materialized outside his workplace.
“Just keeping you safe,” replied the interloper, who had invaded the property without invitation or explanation.
The visitor was clad in what Paul described as a SWAT-style dark blue jumpsuit, mirrored sunglasses, and a baseball cap. He had arrived in a white SUV equipped with running lights and displaying police markings advertising that it belonged to the Department of Homeland Security.
Paul (Understandably annoyed by the functionary’s unwarranted intrusion and patronizing reply

As of lately, I have noticed that the LEO agencies throughout the city have been appearing as para-military. Now, I'm not paranoid, but it just seems the old uniforms with the tin badge is something of the "old".
The new style, is swat pants, tactical vests, thigh holsters, and so on. Which just seems to me particularly concerning? Now, suddenly we have that " presence " of a formidable " foe " who isn't one to be messed with. Or are they now the new instrument on the " global war on terror " scheme?
Interesting to say the least.

Now you people get what the laughable War on Drugs was about. The rapid militarization of our police and domestic forces and the removal of our rights while ensuring the largest prison population in the world while giving the military industrial complex another market to sell it's wares. Now with this fake "War on Terror" we see the militarization ramped up and any pretenses that were needed dropped in favor of the cover all "Fighting Terrorism." This country is a joke and it's all of your faults.

May inquire as to just exactly whom your blaming? I'm sorry but in your response, that aspect I don't follow.

As much as I hate one word responses:

Creepy.



Even aside from the parallels that the article is drawing with soviet russia, the use of the words "patriot" and "citizen" so repeatedly makes them sound like "comrade."



[size=-3] Am I on ATS because I'm paranoid, or am I paranoid because I'm on ATS?

The American people who for the last twenty years engaged themselves in fast food and internet porn while their neighbors had their doors kicked in by para-military in black wielding sub-machine guns while having their property and finances seized and their lives destroyed for the simple crime of having plant leafs in their home. Now that we're in the next phase that doesn't need any pretense to intimidate, arrest or steal from you, it's everyone's fault for not standing up to the pigs when all of this started. This is just a continuation of the rapid militarization of our domestic civil forces, it's not new.

Agreed. In America, we hear the words freedom, and rights. But when one truly analyzes " freedom", you have to ask yourself, just how free am I?
Case in point, if you get a traffic ticket, can you decide to pay the ticket or not, without any consequences? No.
Can you decide to pay your taxes or not, without concern of incarceration? No.

Granted these are just two examples, and as outrageous as they may seem, it still suggests that maybe we aren't as free as one originally thought. Now I'm not naive to the fact that we are enslaved, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. But if you look at the DHS checkpoints at " federal property" locations were the implement warrantless searches on people, it's almost like Russia were you need papers to travel across the borders. Even within our countries limits!
Just doesn't make any sense~

I fully agree with you! I understand now what you mean. We were asleep at the " wheel ", and now we are paying the price!

If the story is true (and we have no reason to believe that it isn't), what would have been a better response for the observer at work to have made?

Should we start coming up with a "Citizens of America protocol" to deal with these so-called law enforcement types?

It needs to be an aggressive yet legally defensible and appropriate response.

Potential examples / components of a larger protocol:

1) Ask for official identification.
2) Write down the "enforcers" name and ID number
3) Ask for the name of the "enforcers" watch commander
3) Ask for a warrant
4) Call your county Sheriff's department
5) Write down the make/model/tag number of their vehicle
6) Start video and/or audiotaping
7) Repeat as necessary

I remember when there were "police officers", not "law enforcement officers".
All seemed to go downhill from there.

Not to mention, someone gave them " free reign " and decided to dress more like a militia than anything else?
