SELF-DEFENSE/SECOND AMENDMENT NEWS

 

 

A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

 

We sleep safely at night because rough men and women stand ready to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

 

“Chaos is the law of nature, and order is the dream of man”

 

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Stop and Seize: How aggressive police take millions from motorists not charged with crimes

 

This Hilarious John Oliver Video Explains How Police Can Legally Seize Your Property

 

Comment from an anonymous retired Law Enforcement Officer (LEO):

 

"The real problem with the asset sharing program, which may bring a return of up to 80% cash value of forfeited assets, is that it has led to abuse of money seizures along the highways of our Nation.  

Highway stops: Any quantity of money that is usually in excess of $5,000-10,000.00 cash is seized under the philosophy that honest citizens do not transport cash and rely on checks or credit cards to conduct transactions.  Large quantity or bulk cash seizures are in fact mostly drug money being transported to Mexico after drugs are delivered and paid for at their destinations.  The drivers of the vehicles containing the currency are questioned and if a denial of ownership is elicited the cash is then seized.  The driver then has to face the consequences with the real owners of the money who ordinarily will not contest the seizure if it is drug money, for instance. If the seizure is contested, then the owner of the cash is left to prove it belongs to him, at his/her own legal expense. 

In addition, there are many instances exist where the dollar amount of the money differs substantially from what the driver claims was carried and what was eventually counted by the seizing authority.

The legality of justification for the initial stop is rarely contested and many stops are questionable.  Abuse of these stops likely will eventually lead to court scrutiny and restrictions being imposed on seizing authority.   

Targeted assets: The asset sharing program has created a perverted focus in criminal target selection.  If the target has assets deemed worth the investigation, and subsequent reimbursement of money by the program, then it may be selected for investigation.  Simply put if the crook is dumb enough not to conceal the assets then he/she is fair game.  The crooks that conceal assets but are bad and really need to go to jail evade targeting.

Inter-agency competition: Additionally, fierce competition exists between federal, state and local agencies for the national seizure tracking number associated with the drug money seizure.  This number is used as a metric of success.  The more seizure numbers involving drugs, weapons, etc. the more successful the agency is seen to be and the greater its justification for the request for federal funds to fund law enforcement efforts.  The money is supposed to be used for law enforcement but very little oversight has been given to these funds and tracking what it was spent for.  Recent scrutiny of seizures may further restrict how law enforcement uses the money.
The fierce competition referred to above has led many in law enforcement to refer to the War on Drugs to be the war for federal funding.  DHS has a motto of "One War One Fight", whereas it really it is a fight between DHS agencies for their funding.  The same can be said for state and local agencies as most feel their organizations are not getting their fair share of money.  Even in Arizona."

CONUNDRUMS

 

Free people are not equal. Equal people are not free. 

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."  

 

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:  

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized. 

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims. 

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer. 

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about. 

'6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries. 

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. 

Makes you wonder who is doing the math. 

 

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment: 

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. 

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't

Think about it.....and Last but not least: 

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for

our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII,

but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.
