With all of the other distractions around the world and on our own southern borders, ( by the way this absolute BS coming from the Obama administration and the mainstream media is what one would expect–the “success” of the Obama, the Narcissistic One, in reducing the flow of “children” into the US from Central America is solely because there is always, always a reduction to almost zero during the peak summer months–it is too damn hot even for the drug smugglers and human coyotes. Thus expect the normal seasonal pickup X 10 in the fall. But by then. no one will remember and the media will not care to remind us that the “slowdown” due to Obama’s brilliance was nothing but BS.), and now Ebola, the continued expansion of the police and total surveillance state goes unimpeded.
We are marching towards tyranny and are just too distracted to see it.
Why are we seeing such an uptick in Americans being arrested for such absurd “violations” as letting their kids play at a park unsupervised, collecting rainwater and snow runoff on their own property, growing vegetables in their yard, and holding Bible studies in their living room?
Mind you, we’re not talking tickets or fines or even warnings being issued to these so-called “lawbreakers.” We’re talking felony charges, handcuffs, police cars, mug shots, pat downs, jail cells and criminal records.
Consider what happened to Nicole Gainey, the Florida mom who was arrested and charged with child neglect for allowing her 7-year-old son to visit a neighborhood playground located a half mile from their house.
For the so-called “crime” of allowing her son to play at the park unsupervised, Gainey was interrogated, arrested and handcuffed in front of her son, and transported to the local jail where she was physically searched, fingerprinted, photographed and held for seven hours and then forced to pay almost $4000 in bond in order to return to her
family. Gainey’s family and friends were subsequently questioned by the Dept. of Child Services. Gainey now faces a third-degree criminal felony charge that carries with it a fine of up to $5,000 and 5 years in jail.
For Denise Stewart, just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, whether or not she had done anything wrong, was sufficient to get her arrested.
The 48-year-old New York grandmother was dragged half-naked out of her apartment and handcuffed after police mistakenly raided her home when responding to a domestic disturbance call. Although it turns out the 911 call came from a different apartment on a different floor, Stewart is still facing charges of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.
