What passes for "law enforcement" these days is more than a little disturbing.
...detective David Baucum overheard the thirty-eight-year-old optometrist
and some friends wagering on a college football game. “To Sal, betting a
few bills on the Redskins was a stress reliever, done among friends,” a
friend of Culosi’s told me...
...On the night of January 24, 2006, Baucum called Culosi and arranged a
time to drop by to collect his winnings. When Culosi, barefoot and clad
in a T-shirt and jeans, stepped out of his house to meet the man he
thought was a friend, the SWAT team began to move in. Seconds later,
Det. Deval Bullock, who had been on duty since 4:00 AM and hadn’t slept
in seventeen hours, fired a bullet that pierced Culosi’s heart....
Then there's the latest/greatest abuse: SWAT-for-regulators (!!)
...By the end of the 2000s, police departments were sending SWAT teams to
enforce regulatory law. In August 2010, for example, a team of heavily
armed Orange County, Florida, sheriff’s deputies raided several
black-and Hispanic-owned barbershops in the Orlando area. More raids
followed in September and October. The Orlando Sentinel reported that
police held barbers and customers at gunpoint and put some in handcuffs,
while they turned the shops inside out. The police raided a total of
nine shops and arrested thirty-seven people...
Nope. Not drugs, not gambling, not prostitution.
...thirty-four of the thirty-seven arrests were for “barbering without a
license,” a misdemeanor for which only three people have ever served
jail time in Florida.
The most disturbing aspect of the Orlando raids was that police didn’t
even attempt to obtain a legal search warrant. They didn’t need to,
because they conducted the raids in conjunction with the Florida
Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
Think about THAT the next time you sell whole milk to your neighbors.
More: I took 3 of my grandchildren jug fishing (tie string to a milk jug,
attach a hook and bait and set them in the water, come back hours later
and bring in the fish). This was a first for my kids. We left about 9:00
p.m., and after setting out two of the jugs we got stopped by two
officers from Illinois Department of Natural Resources (appropriately
shortened to DNR). They were going to do a safety check. They had guns,
dressed as Gestapo, and had bulletproof vests. --quoted at PJMedia
The DNR with BULLETPROOF VESTS?
Here, the acronym stands for "Damn Near Russia." The FIB's could learn something from us.

Can we contract some DNR agents to handle the pedophile priest crisis?
I'd rather they deal with pederasts named Jim Spice.
