Maryland Police Shoot and Kill Man While “Confiscating” His Guns

Gary J. Willis, 61, opened the door to his home with a gun in his hand when two police officers came knocking at 5:17 a.m. on Nov. 5. Anne Arundel County police say Willis put the gun on a table next to the door, but “became irate” when the officers explained that they had come to confiscate his firearms.

Willis grabbed his gun and a struggle ensued, during which the firearm discharged. No one was injured, but the officer not engaged in the struggle shot Willis, and he died at the scene.

Under Maryland’s new Extreme Risk Protection Order law (aka, “red flag law”), family, police, and mental health professionals can seek an order from a judge to temporarily confiscate firearms from a person believed to be a danger to themselves or others.

Maryland’s law states that anything related to an order is confidential unless the court rules otherwise.

…believes one of Willis’ sisters requested that police temporarily remove his guns…

…Willis’ death is evidence that the new red flag law is needed and working.<<<Read More>>>

Is The NRA All Bad?

I guess that depends upon one’s perspective. As many of you might know, I have been very hard on the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other so-called Second Amendment advocate groups of late. But I should point out right away that I stand behind every one of my accusations about those groups.

In an opinion piece found at the Patriot Post, the writer begins to get off the “we got to ban guns” attack and focuses a bit more on the real societal issues driving the violent actions by some. The author mentions our failure at addressing mental illness and growing up in a “fatherless” home. But the real focus seemed to be on making schools safer.

All of these are suggested pills to take to mask the symptoms of a greater problem – a growing immoral, and Godless society.

I’ve discovered through reading this opinion piece that the NRA has an organization called National School Shield. It’s stated Mission is as follows: “The National School Shield®  program is committed to addressing the many facets of school security, including best practices in security infrastructure, technology, personnel, training, and policy. Through this multidimensional effort, National School Shield® seeks to engage communities and empower leaders to help make our schools more secure.”

And that’s pretty much all you will find out about what specifically they do that makes schools safer while engaging communities and EMPOWERING leaders (shivers running up and down my spine). I guess you have to “trust” them. And by the way, they want you to donate.

And therein lies some of the rub. Yes, they state that each school is different and that the issue of school safety is not simple, etc. It all sounds good. Who wouldn’t want a safer school setting? Hadn’t we ought to know more about this and precisely what sort of things they are suggesting that include “best practices in security?” I guess you could call them and try to find out. I didn’t.

Looking at who heads this program and knowing it is a product of the NRA, it is easy to see they are a non-governmental organization that is run by the government, as so many of them today are. If you trust your government and you trust the NRA I would suppose you would find this program right up your alley. You can exclude me. I think there are better answers but not until more people are ready to accept what the problem really is.

In addition to close government affiliation, we find on the NSS website that the ONLY ones eligible to participate in their “training” programs are current or former licensed law-enforcement personnel. Sorry! That’s a big turn-off for me.

I know that after 9/11 the country made heroes out of every cop that ever lived. Cops are cops. They are but human. They are not blanket heroes and shouldn’t be dangerously placed in a position that causes them to think they have more power than they do. We don’t need to enhance the police state atmosphere that already exists. Fear will do that.

There are probably a lot of good people more than qualified to participate in this training program. Why just cops?

To get back to my original question is the NRA all bad, I guess I’ll leave that answer up to you. I see them as not all bad but they are far from all good either. Is this program all bad? Maybe and maybe not. I for one would not put any faith and trust in it but you must understand I wouldn’t put much faith and trust in most things a man does and especially the government.

Mildly put, I am quite skeptical.

Ah, Yes! The Police State We Live in That So Many Deny

“We don’t conduct vigilante activities. Our Officers are licensed by the State of California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS). They are Ca 832 PC and/or Ca POST (Law Enforcement Academy) certified and have backgrounds and experience in Federal Protection Security, Law Enforcement, HAZMAT, and EMT’s, and Military Special Weapons and Tactics. We’re certified by Cal Dept. of Justice Rural Operations, and trained by LAPD Metro in Counter Terrorism response actions, California Central Intelligence Center, Behavioral threat assessment, the State Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, and the California game warden’s tactical unit. We aren’t deputized. It isn’t required. We have arrest powers under the California Penal Code. Our funding comes from government and private contracts.”

LEAR now works in cooperation with County Sheriff’s Depts. & Task Forces (in Multiple Counties); DEA; CA Fish and Wildlife game wardens, BLM, USFS, AG Commissioners and hazardous waste agencies, Special Operation Interagency Teams, Regional Water Quality state and federal agencies; and the game warden MET Team.<<<Read More>>>

Question 3 And Collateral Damage – It’s Real

Many say that the newly-passed gun control law in Oregon is a clone to the one fascist Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy in Maine with his Question 3 referendum. Blind followers refuse or don’t care the real implications of such a draconian law, and to somehow justify their positions they simply deny any suggestion that Question 3 poses multiple issues at many levels and is impossible to enforce, short of all out gun registration and confiscation.

However, we now see that in Oregon, a church pastor won a rifle in a raffle. He gave it to a friend for safe keeping. As I understand it, he didn’t sell him the gun, he didn’t give him the gun and he didn’t loan him the gun. He asked his friend to store it for him.

In the end, this pastor (it doesn’t matter if he was the boogie man) broke the law, but administrators of the police state opted not to “charge” the man for breaking their fascist laws.

Those that

DON’T GO LOOK

don’t want to go look because they are not interested in the rights of others. It is time that we begin a systematic destruction of all rights the same way these totalitarians are dismantling the right to self protection because they don’t like it. There’s a lot of so-called “rights” that I don’t like, but I don’t feel the need to destroy someone else’s rights in order to promote mine. But that may soon change. Maybe these blinded clowns will realize their friends are their enemies when, one day, they discover – if at all possible – there is nothing left except their complete slavery to government fascists – if they are allowed to live long enough to see it.

Doh! Because We Live in a Police State

“It’s too bad that an law enforcement agency has decided to get involved in that debate,” alliance Executive Director David Trahan said. “It’s going to be an enforcement nightmare … so I’m surprised that they would weigh in and support that.”

Trahan contended that the proposed law is ill designed would place undue burden on people who want to lend or borrow guns. He also claimed it was inappropriate for Googins to weigh in on the issue in his capacity as a police chief, given that he also sits on the board of Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence.”<<<Read More>>>

Think of the extra, unfettered police strong arming that can and will take place when this, so-called, unenforceable law is passed. It’s right up a Police State’s alley. Shoot to kill. Ask questions later.

Creating a Police State and Then Not Liking It

Yesterday I laughed! But then again most everyday I laugh; sometimes laughing a lot and sometimes not so much. I laughed at blind ignorance.

I read an article, the bulk of which was whining about people whining. I don’t understand. But that isn’t what I laughed at. I laughed at the lack of understanding that we, in our eagerness to love government and trust in their criminal ways, lined up after 9/11 to give government more control over us and empower law enforcement to ultimately bring this here United States into a full scale police state – all by design of course.

The article in question is an ongoing debate in Maine about the tactics employed by the Maine Warden Service, and probably all Maine law enforcement agencies, used in undercover operations – essentially whether or not law enforcement should be allowed to break the laws the rest of us are expected to uphold in order to entice a would-be criminal and make an arrest. The second issue in this debate is whether or not the same Warden Service is deliberately withholding FOIA documents requested by a leading Maine media company.

Most of the discussions have centered around these two topics but some writers have jumped on this event to try to tie together other issues and connect them with this current one in hopes to further expose the Warden Service of all its shortcomings.

According to information provide in the linked-to article above, the author states that in a survey he conducted, 778 out of 832 people who answered his survey question – “Should Maine game wardens be allowed to break the law and to encourage others to break the law, in order to arrest law breakers? – said that Maine game wardens should not be allowed to break the law in order to arrest someone. (Note – I doubt that the survey is “scientific” and thus may not be a representation of the overall population of Maine residents.)

It made me laugh. It still makes me laugh.

Consider the events of 9/11. I’ll use this as a beginning point because I’m not sure exactly where it all began. However, 9/11 is as good a place as any to start. After 9/11, cops and firefighters were put into a status of “hero.” From that point on, our society has devoted countless hours to putting law enforcement into a category that dangerously gives them powers they should not have. It seems that regardless of what they do or don’t do, they are never wrong and anyone caught criticizing their actions is “unpatriotic.”

This power enabling has gone unchecked for so long now that unbeknownst to the masses, we have willingly offered up our society to a police state. This is exemplified on a regular basis but due to the propagandizing of the hero status, nobody sees or wants to see the reality of what has been created…well, until that reality begins to hit close to home.

This brings us back to the events in Maine where 93.51% of the people taking the survey didn’t think law enforcement should be able to break the law in hopes of making an arrest. Really? Evidently it was okay for law enforcement to break the law when, after the so-called Boston Marathon Bombing, armed police with heavy weaponry and armored vehicles drove down the street illegally busting down doors and intruding into the privacy of people, as police searched for what we have been told were the perpetrators of the bombing. Evidently we have become blinded to think a suspension of the Constitution is in order when a crime rises to a certain level? How many of these same people stood up at that time protesting that law enforcement shouldn’t be allowed to break the laws to catch a criminal?

Oh, but that’s different, I hear often. When asked specifically how it is different, I seldom get an answer. Once upon a time, there was taught in schools and at home that people are innocent until proven guilty; that our laws were made to protect the innocent; that our court system was designed to protect the innocent while prosecuting the accused. Sometimes this process seemed to fail but the good far outweighed bad results.

Not anymore!

It’s easy when sitting at home, comfortable, and knowing that what goes on in Boston or Baltimore, really doesn’t effect you and demand that law enforcement does “whatever is necessary” to “lock them bastards up.” But when law enforcement does what they think is “necessary” to catch a thief in your backyard, things don’t look the same.

Our actions have given police departments of all levels empowerment to often do just as they well please, with the notion that the ends justifies the means. It should never be that way. What enjoyment is there in life, when you see a police car and immediately you fear what they might do to you?

You can continue to call cops heroes if you must but giving them powers to commit crimes in hopes of stopping crime is asinine.

Federal judge: Drinking tea, shopping at a gardening store is probable cause for a SWAT raid on your home

wake up america

The investigation leading to the raid began at least seven months earlier, when Robert Harte and his son went to a gardening store to purchase supplies to grow hydroponic tomatoes for a school project. A state trooper had been positioned in the store parking lot to collect the license plate numbers of customers, compile them into a spreadsheet, then send the spreadsheets to local sheriff’s departments for further investigation. Yes, merely shopping at agardening store could make you the target of a criminal drug investigation.

U.N. goes for Police State in the United States | Agenda 21 Radio

*Editor’s Note* – Perhaps this report is two things – a bit late and presented with the cart before the horse?

The below clip from a bigger article says an attorney is calling attention to the intentions of Barack Obama’s “police state.” What is it exactly that needs to happen in order for the United States to be recognized as a police state? Is it when everything you have is taken away from you and you find yourself locked up with your friends and family? Or, is it all of the things that have transpired over a few decades that has slowly brought us to the point where much of all that is left is to be locked up? And why is this Obama’s police state intentions? People actually think he invented all this?

What I find interesting is that this article describes the “police state set up” as bringing the United Nations into the local police force. From my perspective, and I have been often thought of as a complete fool, it’s the other way around. In actuality, hasn’t the United Nations, through all global power establishments, taken near complete control over state’s governments, along with their local police departments?

If you have your head buried in the sand, or are deliberately attempting to mislead, people actually do not recognize that we have been living in a police state for quite some time. The only claim to fame Obama might have is that he has, for whatever reasons, become emboldened enough to be more “in your face” over it all.

Obama is a puppet of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). I have read that when the CFR is looking for their next president (sorry, you don’t elect them) a key consideration of that potential candidate is the size of his or her ego. The bigger the better. Obama has a huge ego and therefore makes perhaps the best puppet for the puppet masters that the U.S./CFR has had in a long time.

We ought to wake up, but I fear it is too late. It’s really difficult to save a ship that has already sunk to the bottom.

Oh, yeah. “But don’t go look.” Better look into that new app for your “eye” phone.

Constitutional attorney KrisAnne Hall has produced a video which call[s] attention to the upcoming police state intentions of the Obama administration.  The police state set up is to bring the United Nations into the local police force business in the United States through the Strong Cities Network. The Strong Cities Network was announced on September 28, 2015 by Loretta Lynch in a press release just a day before Lynch announced to the United Nations the ‘launch’ of the Network leading one to conclude the timing is suspicious.

wake up america

For years the FBI maintained it had no interest in scanning fingerprints collected by employers — teachers, lawyers, state and federal workers, even bike messengers now routinely submit fingerprints for employment — but that has now changed.“For the first time, fingerprints and biographical information sent to the FBI for a background check will be stored and searched right along with fingerprints taken for criminal purposes,” reports the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization dedicated to protecting rights online.
