Hello everyone-- I've had my account here since 2010 (after the Deep Horizon Oil spill), and I thought I'd posted before, but apparently not
I've been reading this site for a long time now, and one of the things I've taken note of is the many posts that describe the way LEOs are targeting
Consitutionalists, etc, and/or using more firepower than necessary. This is one of those things that I thought, "Oh, that's probably just an
exaggeration," but as of last weekend, I've seen it happen in my dinky little town.
Last weekend, some local LEOs were serving two felony warrants on 54 year-old Jeffrey Wright, who was a self-proclaimed Sovereign. According to one
article I read, (which I can't find now), from previous dealings with Mr. Wright, they knew of his philosophy of Sovereignty, and sent extra men to
serve the warrant. One thing led to another, and Mr. Wright ended up dead.
This situation went from a few officers trying to serve a warrant, to having a whole area, equivalent of a neighborhood block, cordoned off, swarming
with deputies, plain-clothes officers, K-9 dogs, and the SWAT team. I observed at least 12 cars on the side of the neighborhood that I could view,
and that wasn't even in view of the Mr. Wright's house, which was around the corner and about 3 houses down. According to the news reports, the
three SWAT deputies simultaneously opened fire on Mr Wright as he supposedly pointed something that looked like a gun at them. Only those three SWAT
guys will know what really happened, and I'm sure their story will be exactly the same.
So, for those who may think these occurances are exaggerated, you may want to think again.
