Homeland Security, police investigate swastika on home

Homeland Security and Atlanta police want to know who spray painted a swastika on a duplex in DeKalb County.

Police believe the home on Hosea L. Williams Drive is vacant. Someone used blue spray paint to create the symbol.

Why is DHS investigating the spray painting of a swastika on a supposedly vacant home?

This type of vandalism happens pretty regularly and is usually directly toward either minorities (blacks) or those of the Jewish faith, and attributed to either neo-nazis, the KK, or stupid teens.

Usually, the police investigate. Sometimes the people are caught, and charged with vandalism, sometimes a hate crime, sometimes they are not caught. But for DHS to get involved???

The police have always done a good job (
#sarcasm) at investigating and charging on their own, so here's my take:

This type of act, whether intentionally "hateful" and purposefully intimidating, or not, is now, due to the recent classification of certain domestic groups (including citizens), both dissenting and peaceful, including others that are not, as TERRORISTS. So, not only do we have the TSA encroaching onto our highways, bus stations, and trains, we have the DHS encroaching onto our local and state jurisdictions because ANY type of subversive behavior or action, regardless of intent (including peaceful, constitutionally protected acts, of which this is NOT), is now a terrorist act.

And the federal government, on "protecting" us from these terrorists, is now seemingly infiltrating every facet of state and local government.


Why do we need DHS to investigate an act of graffiti?? Or is there more to it?

Sure, the federal government loves to stick its nose into every facet of our lives, and have a hand in local and state, under the guise of the War on Terror...And this is surely not another "training" exercise.

It's just another tiny brick in the every widening wall of big brother. Pretty soon, DHS will be a permanent face in all our lives, aiding and assisting with local law enforcement on everything?

This is just another small step, that goes slightly unnoticed by most, of the ever-broadening and encroaching police state into our lives...

Job security for DHS. They must find terrorists or they will start to look silly now won't they.

I think that's part of it.

As i posted in another thread, and applies here, i think we have too many cops and too many feds, they get bored with little to do, so they have to FIND something to occupy themselves, now don't they?

Instead of finding "terrorists" and "criminals," maybe we need less cops and feds. Unless they are strengthening for tightening the noose of control one day.
