Does your home present a “high risk” to cops?

If I hadn’t lost all of my firearms to a tragic boating accident, mine would’ve.

Though unconfirmed in this instance, high risk search warrants include there being rifles, or something of similar danger inside the home, officials say.

The mere presence of a rifle in the home doesn’t justify a SWAT response. A rifle in the home should be considered the norm. Cops need to present a strong reason to believe that the rifle will be used upon them if they merely knock on the door and present the warrant before any action stronger than such presentation is authorized by a judge.

Tyranny @ it's finest

The boys in blue are coming for you
They will take away your guns, then there won't be anymore fun
Now that you are stunned @ the infringement of your rights, how
will you get more guns to have some fun?
When all this tyranny is done, there won't be anymore guns
We the People, will have nothing left except water guns.

Over my lifetime, the police have become militarized. IMO, that is dangerous to Liberty.

SWAT became a thing in the 70’s when groups of thugs became more organized and more heavily armed. The public was willing to accept more organized and heavily armed cops to deal with them. Unfortunately, these military-style police teams are becoming routine. Worse, average cops are dressing and equipping Ike soldiers in combat zones.

“Experts believes that police militarization was escalated in the 1950s and 1960s, an era in which riots were common in many U.S. cities.”

Which has nothing to do with the militarization of police forces.

I was born in the fifties and grew up in the sixties. SWAT became a thing in the seventies.

Anyway, I am sure one could find examples of SWAT-like stuff earlier than the seventies, but the exponential growth occurred in the seventies. At that time, the public seemed to want militarized police, in part due to some graphic news reports of standoffs heavily armed groups and lesser-armed police.

The militarization of police was also popularized by the 1975 TV show called SWAT. Before that, popular culture’s vision of realistic policing was Adam-12 and Dragnet.

Anyway, the precise decade of the militarization of police is a nit. I won’t participate in further picking of it.

Some of what they seize they bring in and plant. Just to be sure there isn't egg on their face if nothing illegal is actually there.

If you WANT to be a danger to the police do the following:
  • Obey the law and demand that they do likewise.
  • Assume everything they say could be a lie.
  • Do not assume good intentions on their part.
  • Exercise your right to remain silent without benefit of counsel.
  • When necessary avail yourself of your remedies in civil court.
Do those things and cops will hate you more than Mumia Abu Jamal and Chris Dorner combined.
