Our Police State

In Colorado, a dozen SWAT officers knocked down a door, threw a family to the floor at gunpoint, and seized an 11 year old child. Why? He had fallen down; a paramedic thought he should go to a doctor–the dad, a military medic in Vietnam, didn’t think so. The paramedics got heated. Dad was firm. So the paramedic called the cops–who said it was up to the family. The paramedics were aghast, and called the sheriff, who sent some deputies over. Then they sent social workers, who got a magistrate to order the abduction at gunpoint. Doctors found nothing wrong the kid.

Cops told the mom that “rights” were “only in the movies.” Another article. AP.
