La Importancia De La Policia y S.W.A.TFriday, June 27th, 2014, 0-dark-thirty:  The politicians have made their decision. By a twist of fate–your file simply happened to be on the top of the stack for no particular reason–you’ll be the first example. A state police SWAT team pull to the curb in front of your home, leap from their van and rush to your front door. Two black-clad men pull back a ram and swing it toward your front door, aiming just above the knob, while the rest of the team waits anxiously, their automatic weapons charged and off safe. Two hope they’ll get the opportunity to shoot. At least one wants to manufacture the opportunity.

You’ve made two major mistakes; they will cost your life and destroy your family:  you live in a blue state where the governor and legislature have no respect for the Constitution and the lives and liberty of citizens, and you were foolish enough to obey the law.

Starting awake from a sound sleep by the explosion of your door being smashed open and the heavy stomping of booted feet, you stumble down the stairs and into the hallway. As you turn toward the sounds, you’re blinded by multiple bright lights and hear many people screaming at you, but their words are unintelligible. You raise your hands to shield your eyes, but you have your cell phone in your right hand. As soon as it comes into view, you’re overwhelmed by a tidal wave of explosive sounds and feel the first bullets rip into your body. There are stars, so many stars, winking and suddenly, everything goes silent and black and your last conscious thought is a feeling of falling.

The SWAT team, surprised when you suddenly appeared only five feet from them, screamed conflicting commands at you. When you raised your hands and one of them saw something dark in your right hand, he jerked back the trigger of his MP5 submachine gun and didn’t let go until the weapon was empty. Seeing him fire, four more did the same. Of the 137 rounds five of the team initially fired, only 18 actually hit you, but it was enough. The rest shredded your home from floor to ceiling and wall to wall.  Six nearby homes were hit, as were four cars. As you lay dying, your heart beating ever more slowly and weakly, you were spared the horror of your wife’s death.

As she descended the stairs, she saw you hit, blood spurting everywhere, falling to the floor, she screamed loud and long and ran down the steps. When she suddenly leapt into the hallway from the staircase, the nearest officer, who had been staring in shock at your bleeding body, and most of all, at the cell phone near your right hand, was startled. One of only two who had not completely emptied his magazine, he emptied it into her. The rest tried, but with one other exception, their guns were empty, and they frantically and impotently jerked their triggers. The other exception managed to fire the remaining six rounds in his weapon. Of the final 13 rounds fired, eleven hit your wife, five in the chest, three in the head. She was dead before her body fell onto yours, the sickening thump of her head on the hardwood floor echoing in the sudden silence and roiling gun smoke.

That was when they heard screaming upstairs, and gathering their courage and slamming fresh magazines into their guns, rushed upstairs, breaking into your 7-year old daughter’s bedroom, to find her lying in a widening pool of blood on her tiny bed. One of the officers tripped over his own feet as he was charging into the house and triggered nearly a full magazine through the ceiling–into her bedroom and through her bed.  One of his fellow officers caught three rounds on his bullet resistant vest, but that will be covered up for years. Your daughter will survive. She’ll be in a medically induced coma for two weeks, and when she awakens, she’ll be informed she’s an orphan, a paraplegic orphan with a single lung…

We have an advantage here at Bearing Arms over most other new media publications when it comes to talking about law enforcement weapons and tactics, in that one of our contributors, Mike McDaniel, is a former SWAT operator and police firearms trainer. He has more than 20 years in law enforcement, and so he knows their strengths… and their weaknesses.

The hypothetical nightmare situation above is—for now—fiction.

It was pulled from the beginning of Mr. McDaniel’s Connecticut: The Coming Storm, which I highly recommend that you set aside time to read today, especially if you are a law enforcement or a family member of a law enforcement officer.

They have much to think over, including where their allegiances lie.

Politicians in Connecticut have grossly overplayed their hand with the state’s so-called “assault weapon” ban and registration act. Being politicians, they seem to feel they are above consequence for their actions, and so it seems as if they will push ahead with plans to attempt to bring the owners of more than 350,000 “undocumented” firearms and neary 2 million standard capacity magazines to heal. There are but 1,120 sworn officers in the Connecticut State Police as of last week. There are though to be between 80,000-100,000 owners of “undocumented” firearms and magazines, along with perhaps hundreds of thousands of sympathetic owners of various other arms.

Mr. McDaniel listened to Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance state that a citizen who stood against ban was “anti-American,” and proclaim that “I am the master.”
Reading between the lines of Vance’s statements, McDaniel thinks, based on his own experience as a law enforcement officer, that the Connecticut State Police are preparing to come for your guns with everything they have:
Anyone listening to Lt. Vance should come away with the understanding that the State Police certainly will send SWAT teams to the homes of citizens, and will, if they deem it necessary, kill them over the number of rounds their magazines are capable of holding and the appearance of their rifles.  They will kill people to please blood-thirsty politicians.
He goes on to note that police officers are able to do their job only because they uphold the Constitution first and ignore the enforcement of laws that contradict the constitution. He notes that law enforcement officers are given their powers by the people to deal with the truly dangerous criminals and situations that arise. If they violate that social contract wholesale, all bets are off.

Cell phones. Cell phones with cameras. Cell phones with video ...After just calling 911, A police car drives by me even though I’m flagging it down on a narrow road, he drives right past me. I approach the police car wait next to it, obviously indicated that I’m waiting to speak to the officer. INSTEAD the officer approaches me and attacks. Charges me with obstruction of governmental administration a misdemeanor. Penalty 1 year jail. The data on the phone was corrupt and shows signs of tampering and erased data.
Someone online was able to recover one corrupt video. Working on the other parts where I’m screaming in pain and it gets much worse.

The dash cam video they clam was not in the police car at the time, and records of the 911 call have been unable to obtain, yet I have one :) Infact any documents have been hard to obtain. My lawyers name is G____.

I just got this phone back friday after much anguish.

There is even more to recover. If you would like to help recover the other files feel free to download them here.!cFNT1IIb!F_ILHh…

This event happened the 18th. of july 2013 The officer is still working, and I have a very nice picture of him to help others say clear of a similar situation.


A new U.S. Navy ship named to honor 40 passengers and crew killed when their hijacked United Airlines flight crashed as they fought with terrorists during the Sept. 11 attacks was put into service in Philadelphia Saturday.

              Crew members line the rails during a commissioning ceremony for the USS Somerset (LPD 25) Saturday, March 1, 2014, in Philadelphia. The USS Somerset is the ninth San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock and the third of three ships named in honor of those victims and first responders of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

                  The USS Somerset is named for the southwestern Pennsylvania county where Flight 93 crashed. With its 684-foot starboard side serving as the backdrop, the amphibious transport dock warship was formally commissioned in front of more than 5,000 spectators at Penn’s Landing.

‘‘What we commemorate is not that war or an attack on America,’’ said Sen. Pat Toomey. ‘‘We commemorate the day America began to fight back.’’

The Somerset is the third ship to be named in honor of 9/11 victims, joining the USS New York and USS Arlington, which honor those killed in the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon during the attacks.

After its crew manned the ship, the Somerset’s commanding officer, Capt. Thomas Dearborn, said, ‘‘Somerset, let’s roll,’’ paying homage to Flight 93 passenger Todd Beamer’s famous rallying cry. Beamer helped lead the passenger rebellion that led to the plane crashing about 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Investigators believe the hijackers planned to target the White House or Capitol.

The Somerset was christened in Avondale, La., at the Huntington Ingalls shipyard in 2012 and delivered to the U.S. Navy in October 2013. It has been docked in Philadelphia for more than a week and was scheduled to depart Tuesday for its home port in San Diego.

For some of the victims’ families in attendance, the ship symbolized a memorial of their loved ones, but didn’t ease the pain of losing them.

‘‘I'd rather have him instead of the ship,’’ Rodrick Thornton, 68, of Radcliff, Ky., said of his cousin LeRoy Homer Jr., the first officer of Flight 93.

Carol Heiderich, whose brother Capt. Jason Dahl was the plane’s pilot, said the ship is a fitting tribute to the passengers and crew.

‘‘It’s such an honor to have our family members remembered in this way,’’ said Heiderich, 59, of Hollister, Calif.

Dave Whelan, a cousin of Flight 93 passenger Richard Guadagno, said the ship embodied the spirit of the country.

‘‘This is us, this is our country,’’ said Whelan, 67, of Jackson, N.J. ‘‘This ship and the people on it will be prepared to do whatever they have to do.’’

‘‘It’s showing honor to our family members, to the heroes of Flight 93,’’ said Whelan’s wife, Carol. ‘‘It shows that we’re not forgetting. It’s been many years now and I'm hoping that 50 years from now when my grandson goes to Shanksville, they still remember.’’
