The Root Word of Ignorant is Ignore

Police targeted a series of houses in an ongoing drug investigation.

A series of houses? They couldn’t make up their minds?

They couldn’t find any evidence of drugs in the raid.

Recent events in several cities resulted in tragic consequences that may have been preventable. In Atlanta on November 21, 2006, 92 year old Kathryn Johnston shot at officers serving a search warrant on her residence. The officers returned fire, killing Ms. Johnson. It was later determined the officers executed the warrant based upon bad information and then planted narcotics in the house to cover-up the shooting.i

Another tragedy occurred in Lebanon Tennessee in October, 2000, when officers shot and killed John Adams. Adams threatened the officers with a firearm as they entered his residence serving a warrant. Police later indicated they intended to raid the house next door.ii

In Hornlake, Mississippi, on March 23, 2006, an elderly couple was hospitalized after police burst into their home thinking it housed a methamphetamine laboratory. The incident occurred about 4 a.m. An agency spokesman said it was the right address but the wrong house. Police confirmed a heavily armed Tactical Apprehension Containment Team stormed the house. Police stated they had good information from a reliable source that had been backed up by a purchase of narcotics linked to the address. However, when they arrived at the designated address, there were two houses on the lot. They hit the larger of the two houses. "It was the wrong house," police said. The house was totally dark and the TACT members went through to the bedroom looking for the suspects. A man and a woman, both in their 80s, were injured as TACT team members secured the house, although no drugs were found. There were children in the house also, but they were not awakened, according to police.iii

The purpose of this article is to prevent any law enforcement agency involved in the execution of a search or arrest warrant from accidentally serving the warrant at the wrong location. The consequences of a “wrong house raid” not only potentially exposes the officers and the agencies involved to legal liability but may traumatize innocent citizens, expose all involved parties to potential danger, and may jeopardize the success of an investigation.

Are we going to ignore what's going on around us? Are we going to stick our head in the sands of the catch-phrase of the day while a select few take our country away from us? Do you really think they will let us talk about anything when they have achieved their goals?

The root word of ignorant is ignore, people. Don't be ignorant.

Weary here is another example of police using their powers wrongly. Yet to think this lady has the right to shoot them just doesn’t seem to be the answer.

Coincidentally, I just watched a segment which discussed the issue of citizens videotaping police officers performing their jobs. Personally, I believe the first amendment unequivocally empowers people to videotape in this manner. I sure hope that all of these victims can achieve the justice they deserve through wrongful arrest lawsuits.

Seems these kind of laws can be overturned by what’s left of the remenants of our representative governing process. Show up at a town hall meeting, write a legislator, etc.

The Corpocracy would not fight, could care less about such domestic jurisprudence, no real money involved.

But, to get a sufficient number of people to take any kind of action when they are not directly involved or the direct recipient of cops gone bad, is a difficult thing.

Unfortunately these misguided actions will have to take place in many localities before the public can be sufficiently aroused, IMO.

j2t2, I guess giving up is the answer to this question also!
It’s better to live in servitude than die a free man, right j2t2? What does that remind me of? j2t2, does your state flag have a white background with a yellow stripe down the middle of it?

As for that cop/barrel chested thug, I’d say if he’s afraid of someone standing behind him he should get a another job. From the way they whine about their pay I’m sure he could make a lot more money working for the WWF. That’s a good place for a bully.

Thanks for the segment Warped Reality. It’s good to see people standing up for themselves.

Roy Ellis, we don’t need more laws, we need judges that respect the constitution. We need to question judges and make them get on record as to what their opinion of the constitution is. If they are wishy-washy about what it means then get rid of them.

So who is giving up Weary? It seems you have decided that the only means of solving this problem is by shooting a cop. See how that works out for you.

It’s better to live in servitude than die a free man, right j2t2?

Weary I don’t live in servitude, fortunately I also don’t live wallowing in stupidity.

What does that remind me of? j2t2, does your state flag have a white background with a yellow stripe down the middle of it?

Weary to suggest the answer to this problem can be solved at the business end of a gun is big talk, stupid but big. I suggest it is you who is the coward for suggesting violence instead of changing the laws. Your foolish answer is to shoot the messenger, for crying out loud, not the legislator’s that have passed laws that allow this type of police activity. The police are doing their job, shooting them only encourages more and stricter laws, which will worsen the problem. It will solve nothing despite your chest thumping and big talk. Get constructive on this issue not destructive and do something to change the laws.

I have not suggested violence at all, j2t2. You are putting words in my mouth so you can continue to accept the status quo.

And I have not said anything about giving up Weary. Nor have I taken the cowards way Weary yet you act as if I did. You are the one that has decided to carry over the discussion from previous post, not me.

What is the answer, j2t2?

Demilitarizing the police for starters, new laws and regulations that restrict the police tactics that cause the problems. A different approach to the “War on Drugs”, and of course a review of past court decisions that have weakened the 4th amendment along with new laws that strengthens the rights of the people of this country.

The problem to this approach is the SCOTUS and many levels of federal courts in loaded with conservatives that support the weakening of the 4th amendment. Beware of those that claim to fight for liberty.

Talking Points Memo has a story which I consider related. The fast growing private prisons for profit and how they are influencing government to pass legislation that will increase the number of Americans who are incarcerated, thus increasing their profits.

There is something odd about a country that has less than 5% of the worlds population and nearly 25% of the worlds incarcerated people.
