    OT: Empty home destroyed in 4-hour SWAT siege [RENTON refuses to pay damages]

    Renton homeowner wants to know why damage from SWAT raid hasn’t been paid for
    http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/crim...-raid-h/nPcW7/

    Empty home destroyed in 4-hour SWAT siege, innocent woman left with $100,000 in damages
    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/m...la-torre-raid/

    “They wiped my whole life from underneath me and now I’m trying to pick it up and move on.”

    ....

    "Further information would reveal that the raid was even more botched than it appeared. Aside from destroying an empty home, police soon discovered that the suspect they were searching for did not even live at the address. And if that weren’t problematic enough, police were also acting on bad intelligence; the person who made the accusations later recanted the entire story. The man they were looking for was innocent, and never arrested."

    If she should sell the home, buy a tank, and level every public facility in town ...

    eye for an eye ...


    Would you find her guilty of anything?

    Actually as long as she hurt no innocent bystanders. No.

    Not eye for eye, but because she would be retaliating against a violent coercive system.

    Like that guy that crushed the cop cars with the tractor.

    This happened two years ago. How come we're just now hearing about this?

    OT: Empty home destroyed in 4-hour SWAT siege [RENTON refuses to pay damages]

    WAR ON DRUGS
    to the tune of “Silver Bells“


    Politicians’
    Inquisitions,
    SWAT teams break down your door.
    No one’s safe from an unnamed informant.

    False arresting,
    Urine testing
    Target helpless and poor.
    Those who profit, though, keep up the chant:

    War on Drugs!
    War on Drugs!
    “If we save one kid, it’s worth it.”
    Rule of law.
    Tooth and claw.
    Who cares how many we harm?

    Cops teach courses,
    D.A.R.E. endorses:
    “Turn your own parents in,”
    Not unlike the old Soviet Union.

    No police state!
    Join the Free State!
    This is where freedom’s been!
    Stop the Drug War before it stops you!

    War on Drugs!
    War on Drugs!
    Really a war against people.
    Broker this
    Armistice–
    Help bring about peace on Earth.
    You and me
    Can be free.
    Forge liberty in our time.

    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    No advocating anything here, just saying that if city building were to be torched I would not feel bad for the city so long as no one was inside when they were lit.

    Thank your friendly 'social conservative' for this event. Gotta get tough on crime and stop those evil drugs for the children.

    Well I would not feel bad if the attorney, representing the city,'s house burned to the ground either.

    You'd know they would just raise taxes, and build new structures that cost 10x more than the old ones.

    Careful, they'll put up 'No Fire' signs, and then there'd be no chance of that happening.

    Two year old event with a follow-up dated Thursday, May 22, 2014.

    On Alaska State Troopers they show Troopers serving warrants on people who are known to have guns all the time without any problems. The Renton community should stand up for one of their own demand change from their local leaders for the uncalled use of SWAT forces. The city is liable for damages and by extension the local population because they voted for the leaders who hired police and set policies for the use of SWAT. We The People are the government.

    Felony level damages.

    She has filed the paperwork for getting her money back, I would think that the limitations are not over.
