Some good news for Edward Snowden, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Venezuela said that they will allow him to seek asylum in their countries. The problem, of course, is, how is he going to get into any of these country? With the U.S. threatening other countries and making sure that any plane that Snowden might be in, grounded, how’s he going to get out? Well, I have an idea, but I’m keeping it to myself. I hope he thinks of it.
Here in Nevada, an incident occurred which sounds just like what happened in Nazi Germany. This incident took place in Henderson, a suburb of Las Vegas.
Police called Anthony Mitchell on the phone and asked him if they could use his house for surveillance on a domestic violence case. Anthony Mitchell told police he did not want to get involved and did not want his house used as a lookout place. Police then went to Anthony’s house, knocked on Anthony Mitchell’s door, but Anthony would not open it. While the police were banging on the door, Anthony called his mother, who lives in the neighborhood, and told her what was happening. The police rammed the door open and threw pepper balls all over Anthony and his dog (The dog got scared and ran out of the house and spent almost all day out in the hot sun). The police told Anthony to get on the floor and put his hands behind his back. While he was down, Anthony called police officers “assholes”. This made the officers angry and they began shouting obscenities at Anthony and abusing him. The police took over the house and moved the furniture around without Anthony’s approval. Anthony kept talking and the police arrested him for obstructing justice. He was taken to police headquarters.
The police then went over to Linda and Michael Mitchell’s house, Anthony’s parents, and asked them if their house could be used for surveillance. They said no. The police asked Michael if he’d come with them to help them talk to the neighbors who were having domestic problems. He said yes and left with the police. But the police had no interest in getting Michael’s help, they just wanted him out of the house.
Meanwhile, Linda Mitchell was at home with the police officers. The police rummaged through Linda’s purse without permission. Then the police officers grabbed Linda and walked her to the police headquarters, also to get her out of the house. They rushed her to police headquarters without stopping to let her rest. The other police officers stayed in Linda’s house to use as a lookout point.
Police arrested Michael and Anthony, and they spent 9 hours in jail. Police allowed Linda to go home.
When Linda got home, she found all her cabinet doors open, the refrigerator door open, and mayonnaise and mustards jars left on the door. Furniture had been moved. The house was a mess.
The family complained to headquarters, but nothing was done to the police officers. Not one thing.
The family decided to sue. They’re suing the police department for punitive damages, and for police abuse of their 3rd, 4th and 14th Amendment rights, assault and battery, conspiracy, defamation, abuse of process, malicious prosecution, negligence, and emotional distress.
The police dismissed charges against Anthony and Michael Mitchell.
Can you imagine, the police break into the family’s house, break down the door and then turn around and arrest the family. It’s like the Gestapo. What nerve!
With the Patriot Act, NDAA, and all those other acts passed by Congress to keep our country safe, the police are taking advantage of all the acts and doing whatever they feel like doing.
I hope the Mitchell family wins in court and wins big bucks. They deserve it for what they had to put with from police.
Will your home be the next one the police break into?
It’s getting bad out there, people. Who’s going to protect us from the Gestapo, um, I mean police?
