Your Police State at work

with 2 comments

In the further assault on freedom of religion, freedom of association, and the supposed right to privacy, the apparatchiks of the state continue to perpetuate the fraud that they have a duty to protect anyone from anything and/or everything, including themselves.

As Wendy McElroy points out, any old premise will do for the power-mad, even if it’s founded on a complete hoax.

In short, the phone call for help upon which the raid was based is about to be revealed as the complete fraud I pronounced it to be a few days ago. Sarah Jessop Barlow, whose marriage records the Child Protective Service claimed to have found in compound records, apparently doesn’t exist. Meanwhile, the man named as Sarah’s rapist and abuser has been living in Arizona and has not set foot in Texas since 1977. Thus, the police declined to arrest him.

The entire case against the polygamy compound is at stake here. The only evidence of a crime has been collected on the basis of a warrant issued in response to a hoax. Thus, according to precedent and the Constitution, all such evidence should be inadmissible. Nevertheless, the authorities are already staking out the position that the search is on solid legal ground as long as police acted in good faith – or as long as they believed the call was real.

  1. If I am not mistaken the hoax call happened three days prior to the raid. There’s no way in Hades I believe that no Texas law enforcement agency involved in the raid DIDN’T contact the phone company and verify where the call came from. So much for their good faith claim they are hiding behind for this travesty of justice.

  2. that’s for damn sure. looks to me like they were begging for another Waco and just couldn’t wait for the opportunity to try out their Armored Personnel Carrier and their bitchin’ new paramilitary gear on another group of unsuspecting people. all to cover up their lies and fabricated evidence. pathetic.
