More Police State Terrorism

It's bad enough that we have to worry about foreign terrorists, but now we also have to worry about our own police forces smashing their way into the homes of innocent people, arresting them, and killing their dogs for no reason.

The Mayor of Berwyn Heights, Maryland, and his wife had such a thing happen to them. The link is to an article on CNN's website. Imagine coming home and finding a package on your front step addressed to your spouse. You bring it inside, and the next thing you know armored SWAT forces are smashing through your door, shooting your pets to death, and terrorising your family - and you've done nothing illegal. This is the "Free Country" we live in, the one our forefathers went off to fight wars for, to die for, so we could live in peace and freedom. Thanks to our neo-fascist president and his followers, we have lost our freedoms and gained a police state where we can be victimized by our police who are supposed to serve and protect us.

This is going to be more and more common, unfortunately, as we continue to watch our civil liberties erode before our eyes, all in the name of liberty.

It's crazy how quick cops are to use their guns and how much they get away with.

The killing of these dogs was unacceptable.
