The Enforcement Arm of the Robber State
Will Grigg educates us on the tactics, rationale, and true motivation of so-called "forfeiture" statutes, whereby cash, other personal property, and even real property can be seized by government thugs claiming that the property in question was connected to some form of alleged illegality.
Substitute "assault weapon" and "domestic terrorism" crimes for the marijuana offenses outlined in Will's article, and you'll understand why freedom-loving folks had best have a plan B for when their houses and their belongings are seized by their local "joint anti-terrorism task force."
Read the whole thing, and heed well his closer:
...In ways too numerous to chronicle (I'm doing my best, and falling behind badly), the local police in our country are rapidly becoming the most serious criminal threat we face. This is because common crooks, when repelled, will retreat and seek other victims, but criminals in State-issued costumes will summon sufficient force to visit exemplary violence upon those who resist.
This is not an argument against righteous resistance, but rather a sober tactical assessment of the enforcement arm of an Enemy that has dropped any pretense of acting on behalf of the public good...
Alea iacta est.
