Our Armed Protectors...

...Just doing their jobs... again. From The Agitator, another case of not only the wrong address, but searching that wrong address without so much as a search warrant.
Lopez said as soon as they came into the apartment, they pushed him against the wall in the kitchen, and the three officers put their guns to his head.

...

When Lopez managed to see the address on the arrest warrant, pointing out the mistake to the officers, he said, "one officer turned to the other and said, 'Oh, my God.' And as soon as he said that, they left."

Lopez said they never apologized and when he asked for their names, they simply told him to take it up with the Prosecutor's Office.

And the mentioned arrest warrant was for? Another DRUG charge.

The 'War On some Drugs' is creating another class of criminal. Well, that's not exactly true. Governments have always had their tyrants. The promise in the United States of America was that the tyrants would always be extremely limited in their power.

Dare I ask, can we ever get back to our Constitutionally limited government?
