Southern California cops have never proved to be that smart. Wannabes like the ones in Temecula are jealous that there aren't any cop shows on TV about them so they aren't the cream of a dubious crop. They also have that Holier Than Thou attitude equal to Papal infallibility also self anointed.

When the Town decided to create it's own police force, they hired a bunch of cops from the Los Angeles area.
While they have mellowed some, they are still too full of swagger for my liking.

(Can you imagine if only one thing were to change wiht the police, and that's that they wore uniforms that marked them as belonging to another nation, or even the UN?  I wonder how people would react to them then?).

The change in uniforms regardless if it's a different country, county, or self appointed group will still have the sheeple bowing down to them as they passed.

Those on the political left in the U.S. would probably be thrilled to have a foreign global body policing this country.  On the other side, the good ol' boy republican types, who are traditionally in love with rampant pig authority, would start singing a very different tune if our police suddenly wore camo and blue helmets.

Tom P. brought up a point in another thread a while back about how he sees no difference in the violation of rights by government and the same violations by big businesses.  I suppose this is another spin on that idea, where people will decry abuses of authority on the other side of the world, but they'll turn a blind eye when it happens right across the street -- all because the JBT crimes are perpetrated by our almighty police and state, as opposed to some warlord on the other side of the world.  Sad.

Interesting point, Dervish.  Glad you didn't go down in a hail of gunfire.  :mellow:

There might be an upside to this story.  Murrieta/Temecula is not one of our poorer areas.  Hopefully the residents will take umbrage and give the pigs a good roasting.

ATF Agents Burst Into Wrong House
Mother, Toddler Inside Home When Officers Enter

Quote
The ATF agents were supposed to conduct a raid at a home in the 2600 block of Northwest 49th Terrace in northwest Miami-Dade County, but they were off by one block. They entered a house on Northwest 49th Street instead.

A mother and her 2-year-old boy were among the innocent people inside the home when the agents came in. When the agents realized their mistake, one of them said, "Ma'am, you were in the wrong place."

She was in the wrong place!  :BangHead:

Motorcycle club members sue police

Quote
Among the allegations, the suit claims the misconduct of local authorities while federal agents looked on.

For example, the complaint states that after authorities forced entry to the Woodall home at the 200 block of North Date Avenue in Rialto,
they maced the family dogs in the backyard and tormented the children.
 
The suit alleges also that as the Rooney home on the 100 block of Eighth Street in Norco was searched the same morning, Robin Rooney was pulled from a shower naked and taunted with remarks like, "Thanks for the peep show."

Yanny said the children of these families were traumatized by the experience, Joy Woodall and John Rooney lost their jobs as a result, and no weapons nor drugs were found in either household.

Just following orders Ma'am!  :police:

   If I am exceeding the posted speed limit, they would say I committed a crime whether it was intentional, or due to inattention. If I were to accidentally shoot a family member who I mistook for an intruder, I would be charged with at least manslaughter or negligent homicide. Collateral damage in law enforcment as in war is considered acceptable in order to enforce the will of governments on the people. Perhaps the message to the people should be "Is a war on drugs worth dieing over?" Next step, "Yeah drugs might make my life worse instead of better, but how does putting me in jail help?"

GBI agents raid wrong Buford duplex in drug case

Quote
Armed with a no-knock warrant, they forced entry into the duplex and no one was in the unit. Officers banged on the other unit in the same duplex, startling the occupants.

After figuring out they were at the wrong building, agents went next door and arrested their suspect, Jesus Bello-Quinones.

He was charged with drug trafficking and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Just keep busti'n down doors, you'll eventually find your suspect. :rolleyes:

Dog Killed In Home Search, Owner Files Complaint

Quote
Police in Howard County serve a search warrant in Elkridge looking for weapons and ammo.

But as Kelly McPherson reports, the homeowner says it was the wrong house, and now the family dog is dead.

No one was arrested at the end of the raid, but the homeowner is filing a complaint against the police saying his family was abused.  He says his 12-year-old daughter was handcuffed while their dog was killed.

I think someone (whoops, here I am say "someone" perhaps it should be me?) who collects data on the number of people (both cops and others) who are killed as a result of no-knock raids.  The numbers could be crunched to give statistics by "wrong house" vs. correct house.  I don't think it matters even if they have the correct house, because I believe that this overuse of force STILL leads to more deaths than if police were ALWAYS required to knock and say, "OPEN UP, THIS IS THE POLICE" before bashing the door in.

Anyway...

Then compare those numbers to other things that are prohibited "for our safety" like, oh I don't know... the number of people who die from overdosing on pot?  Or from drinking raw milk?  Or from eating food that wasn't inspected by the FDA?  Or from side-effects of drugs APPROVED by the FDA?

Just an idea...

97% of drug deaths from legal drugs

the data is a little dated, didn't look to see if there is an update yet.

Raid on wrong house frustrates Baltimore couple

Quote
Andrew Leonard was watching television with his wife not long after returning from Ash Wednesday services when police burst through the front door of his North Baltimore home. He was handcuffed, plopped in a chair and told to keep quiet as officers rifled through the house, then interrogated for 15 minutes about drugs and a dealer he knew nothing about.

As it turned out, police had the wrong house. The man they were looking for lived two doors down.

Leonard, a 33-year-old chemist who has no criminal record, said he and his wife, a 29-year-old credit analyst, were frightened and humiliated by the incident. But for the past two months, he's wanted just one thing from the city: for someone to pay for the damage to his front door.

And he said trying to get the city to help out in the aftermath has been even more frustrating than the police's initial mistake.

Spring Valley family's home mistakenly raided

Quote
Federal agents mistakenly raided a home in Spring Valley in the early morning hours, terrifying the family living there.

"They pulled frickin' guns on my family," the victim said.

The man chose to keep his identity private.

"As soon as I opened up my door, they grabbed me by the back of my neck, pushed me up against the railing, ran upstairs, assaulted my wife, pinned her up against the door," the victim said.

Would any of this behavior be acceptable if it was not the "wrong house?" Why should this happen in ANY house, ever?

Police Confront Broward Judge at Gunpoint



Quote
Broward Circuit Court Judge Ilona Holmes, her sister and her sister’s family says they were ordered at gun point by several Broward Sheriffs Deputies on Easter Sunday to come out of her sister’s home with their hands up.
Quote

The call to police said there might be a burglar inside 235 Southwest 4th Street. But there is no 235. Only 236 and 230.

Arriving police outside spotted someone inside 230 – Neville Scarlett was in the kitchen cleaning up the Easter dinner plates - and thought he might be the burglar.
Quote

The judge carries a legal firearm and immediately pulled it out and held it in her hand.


Quote

Judge Holmes, one of the very few black judges in Broward County, saw justice from a whole new perspective.

Quote
She said other officers explained to her that they have families too and they want to make it home alive each night. But she says they did so in a condescending way, lecturing her as if she’d done something wrong.

Oh My. Well, maybe now she might think about how these things can "just happen" (if you listen to the story she says something like "I never believed stuff like this could happen!")
