    Are we a police state yet?

    March 5, 2013

    Two SWAT Teams shut down a neighborhood in Colorado for four hours to search for a man suspected of stealing a bicycle and merchandise from Wal-Mart. Two SWAT teams were deployed and an entire neighborhood in Ft. Collins, Colorado was shut down for four hours to search for a man suspected of stealing a bicycle and a grocery cart full of merchandise from Wal-Mart.

    However, if the story was said SWAT team shut down a Colorado neighborhood looking for a man who supposedly had a gun, they'd be fine with it.

    Nothing to rival a NAZI Germany or a Communist Russia yet, but we're getting there.

    All you have to do is look at the wide-spread lock down in Boston, or the "training" exercises in Chicago. And there were similar "training" exercises in Miami recently. But under Bush, when the military needed realistic training for urban combat, a small town was built for that purpose. Not so much now.

    Now a SWAT team for a bicycle thief in CO? Thousands of full automatic weapons and billions of rounds of ammunition for DHS to be distributed to local, state, and Federal agencies? Armored vehicles distributed around the nation? And purging flag officers?

    Will we survive the next four years as a free Nation?

    As is often the case, no one on DU bothered to look for a real article on the subject rather than the snippet.


    Wednesday evening, police tracked Taylor’s car to a trailer home off Summit View Drive, south of Mulberry Street and east of Timberline. Because Taylor has a history of violence and using weapons, police called in the Larimer County Sherriff’s Office SWAT team. More than 20 marked and unmarked police and sheriff’s vehicles descended upon the neighborhood from about 6 p.m. until about 10 p.m.

    “We attempted to locate the suspect inside the residence,” said Fort Collins police Sgt. Jerrod Kinsman late Wednesday night. “The suspect was not found in the home. He is still at large at this point.”

    In addition to being a suspect in the Walmart robbery, Taylor also was wanted on a warrant for failing to appear in an ongoing court case in which he had been charged with kidnapping, felony menacing and violating a restraining order.

    Taylor in 1998 pleaded guilty to leading police on a high-speed pursuit through the city after firing 14 shots from a rifle into the home of a Fort Collins couple. Taylor was in 1998 also convicted of robbing an East Mulberry hotel.

    Of course. They don't object to a police state, they just want to be in charge of who gets policed.
