Sen. David Vitter (R., La.) called on the Justice Department (DOJ) Tuesday to investigate an armed raid by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) agents on an Alaskan gold mine that occurred earlier this year.

Vitter, in a letter sent Tuesday to Attorney General Eric Holder, requested the Justice Department investigate the EPA raid, which occurred at a gold mine in Chicken, Alaska earlier this year as part of an investigation into violations of the Clean Water Act.

“The EPA’s use of unnecessary armed intimidation tactics against Alaska miners this summer was extreme, especially to investigate potential Clean Water Act violations from what are essentially a handful of small business owners,” said Vitter, the ranking member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. “At the very least, EPA owes Congress and the American people a thorough explanation, but since they have refused to publicly explain their raid, I hope DOJ will investigate EPA’s excessive actions.”


Brown shirts, anyone? Body armored Brown shirts?

Really? The EPA feels the need to go in ARMED and ARMORED ?

When is ENOUGH going to be enough?

Or will it be too late when the IRS shows up at your door with AR-15's that they ordered and paid for training for to boot?

Or how about the DHS with their shotguns and what was it, $14Million in ammo? When are they going to show up?

Maybe they'll just borrow the body armor from the EPA.
