A repeat of Waco or Ruby Ridge?
Or were we ridiculously close to the start of the 2nd American Revolution?
Many of you know about the issue going on in Nevada between the Bundy Cattle Ranch and the BLM.
Some of the basics can be found HERE.
Read below, it seems like things might start to get worse.
‘Expect To See A Band Of Soldiers’: Militia Members Arrive At Nevada Ranch
LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — Militia groups are rallying behind a rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch.
“We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”
Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with Bundy and stay at his ranch.
“They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.
The Review-Journal also reports that Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was shot with a stun gun by law enforcement officers Wednesday and that the rancher’s sister, Margaret Houston, was pushed to the ground.
“I pulled the tasers out of him,” Cheryl Teerlink told the Review-Journal.
Lawmakers are adding their voices into the fray, criticizing the federal cattle roundup fought by Cliven Bundy who claims longstanding grazing rights on remote public rangeland about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada said he told new U.S. Bureau of Land Management chief Neil Kornze in Washington, D.C., that law-abiding Nevadans shouldn’t be penalized by an “overreaching” agency.
Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval pointed earlier to what he called “an atmosphere of intimidation,” resulting from the roundup and said he believed constitutional rights were being trampled.
Heller said he heard from local officials, residents and the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and remained “extremely concerned about the size of this closure and disruptions with access to roads, water and electrical infrastructure.”
The federal government has shut down a scenic but windswept area about half the size of the state of Delaware to round up about 900 cattle it says are trespassing.
BLM and National Park Service officials didn’t immediately respond Wednesday to criticisms of the roundup that started Saturday and prompted the closure of the 1,200-square-mile area through May 12.
It’s seen by some as the latest battle over state and federal land rights in a state with deep roots in those disputes, including the Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s and ’80s. Nevada, where various federal agencies manage or control more than 80 percent of the land, is among several Western states where ranchers have challenged federal land ownership.
The current showdown pits Bundy’s claims of ancestral rights to graze his cows on open range against federal claims that the cattle are trespassing on arid and fragile habitat of the endangered desert tortoise. Bundy has said he owns about 500 branded cattle on the range and claims the other 400 targeted for roundup are his, too.
BLM and Park Service officials see threats in Bundy’s promise to “do whatever it takes” to protect his property and in his characterization that the dispute constitutes a “range war.”
U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Las Vegas, noted that BLM officials were enforcing federal court orders that Bundy remove his animals. The legal battle has been waged for decades.
Kornze, the new BLM chief, is familiar with the area. He’s a natural resource manager who grew up in Elko, Nev., and served previously as a senior adviser to Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Reid aide Kristen Orthman said her boss “hopes the trespassing cattle are rounded up safely so the issue can be resolved.”
Sandoval, a former state attorney general and federal district court judge, weighed in late Tuesday after several days of media coverage about blocked roads and armed federal agents fanning out around Bundy’s ranch while contractors using helicopters and vehicles herd cows into portable pens in rugged and remote areas.
“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” the governor said in a statement.
Sandoval said he was most offended that armed federal officials have tried to corral people protesting the roundup into a fenced-in “First Amendment area” south of the resort city of Mesquite.
The site “tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution” and should be dismantled, Sandoval said.
BLM spokeswoman Kirsten Cannon and Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover have told reporters during daily conference calls that free-speech areas were established so agents could ensure the safety of contractors, protesters, the rancher and his supporters.
The dispute between Bundy and the federal government dates to 1993, when land managers cited concern for the federally protected tortoise and capped his herd at 150 animals on a 250-square-mile rangeland allotment. Officials later revoked Bundy’s grazing rights completely.
Cannon said Bundy racked up more than $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees over the years while disregarding several court orders to remove his animals.
Bundy estimates the unpaid fees total about $300,000. He notes that his Mormon family’s 19th century melon farm and ranch operation in surrounding areas predates creation of the BLM in 1946.
Since the cattle roundup began Saturday, there has been one arrest.
Bundy’s son, Dave Bundy, 37, was taken into custody Sunday as he watched the roundup from State Route 170. He was released Monday with bruises on his face and a citation accusing him of refusing to disperse and resisting arrest.
A court date has not been set.
His mother, Carol Bundy, alleged that her son was roughed up by BLM police.
Meanwhile, federal officials say 277 cows have been collected. Cannon said state veterinarian and brand identification officials will determine what becomes of the impounded cattle.

So what jobs are most attractive to psychopaths? Here’s the list, originally published online by Eric Barker:
3. Media (Television/Radio)
7. Police officer
8. Clergy person
10. Civil servant
And for those looking to potentially avoid working with the least number of psychopaths, here’s the list of occupations with the lowest rates of psychopathy:
1. Care aide
6. Charity worker
8. Creative artist
Rest of the article is HERE.
I have to say this is very telling, I am not surprised by most of this list: CEO’s, Lawyers, Media, Salespeople, Surgeon, Copfuk, Clergy or Civil Servant all have those sort of traits that could characterize someone as a psychopath or sociopath. And with Civil Servant and Lawyer listed I consider Politician part of the list as well.
I read this on Quinn’s The Burning Platform and it’s simple reasoning and logic is so profound I am re-posting it here. We are now dealing with a dangerous and fearful master.
Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
by Paul Rosenberg
Relationships matter, a lot. We are formed by relationships with other people: parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, spouses, children, business associates, and more. The impact of relationships in our lives is profound.
But there is a factor in most of our relationships that sullies them – that warps and dirties them: the peremptory intrusion by enforcers and mediators.
The most vulgar images we have of this are the prima nocte stories – the ruler’s right of the first night with any bride – as seen in Braveheart and other pieces of fiction. (There is little or no evidence that such things ever really happened in the West.)
On a less vulgar and far more widespread scale, however, violations of our relationships are not fiction; they are all too real.
Who do you think has a right to take over your relationships with your children? What about your relationships with your spouse?
In fact, your government claims precisely those rights. They have forcibly set themselves as the arbiter of your marriage; they have the right to steal your children and to force you to do business (or not do business) with whomever they specify.
This may not be as horrific as prima nocte, but it functions on precisely the same principles of dominance and force. The claim of the intruders that “We’re doing this for your own good” in no way changes the fact that they are taking over your relationships by force.
Before I get to the heart of this issue, I should probably devote a section to the internal issues that it triggers.
It’s crazy to imagine that outsiders have any right to control our relationships with our families, yet that is precisely what is done to us. The reason we allow this is familiarity. Once people see abuse as normal, their examination of it ceases. Everyone around them accepts the crime, so they do too.
Harriet Tubman, who escaped slavery then made dozens of trips back into slave territory and freed hundreds more, wrote this:
If I could have convinced more slaves that they were slaves, I could have freed thousands more.
So, if it was hard to convince slaves in the old American South that they were indeed enslaved, this problem is significant. People can come to see nearly any type of abuse as normal. And once they do, they tend to defend their previous choices.
The way out is to examine the morality of these things, then to accept the conclusions of that examination. Agents of the status quo always resort to intimidation and confusion. The answer to these abuses is moral clarity.
The other problem with a discussion like this isn’t whether or not it is true – it is perfectly clear that the state inserts itself into our relationships by force. What holds people back from facing this obvious conclusion is fear. Not so much fear of punishment, but a fear of facing the truth within ourselves.
It’s easy (and correct) to take offense at these intrusions, but, as I say, that’s not really my point. The far more important issue is this:
Our relationships have been stripped of their intimacy and purity.
Neither our marriages nor our families (not to mention business relationships) are really our own. An armed mediator stands above them, carrying a permanent threat of force.
How well could you raise your children with an armed neighbor following you around and enforcing their will?
This is not a wild example, by the way. It differs from reality only in that the enforcer’s presence is in your mind, rather than in physical form. And if the enforcer is notified, he will show up in physical form.
Children are stolen from parents nearly every day, and not just when the parents are monsters. We all know this, and fear of the enforcer is very real to us.
We have not known real, unmediated marriages. Nor have we enjoyed unmediated relationships with our children.
There are dozens of ways of excusing these intrusions; we’ve been surrounded by them all our lives. We all know the long lists of “Well, what if…?”
What follows those lists, however – what is excused by those fears – are permanent intrusions into our most intimate relationships.
We’ve been robbed of pure, unmediated relationships. We have been trained to see this as normal, but it isn’t, and it has both cheapened and degraded all of those relationships. How could it not?
Our most intimate relationships have been prima notced. It’s time to face that fact and to start doing something about it.

So the ATF got what it wanted anyway, sounds like the DOJ pressured the judge who approved the RO to remove it. This is what goes for Law and Order in the US(S)A.
Please explain to me how the very existence of the ATF isn’t a violation of the 2nd Amendment.
My original post on this is HERE.
Katie Pavlich | Mar 17, 2014
Last week Ares Armor, a company that sells firearms parts in San Diego, obtained a restraining order against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The restraining order was approved by Federal Judge Janis L. Sammartino and a federal raid of the business was prevented. ATF planned on raiding the company in order to gain access to a list containing more than 5,000 customer names. The customers on the list had purchased a plastic or polymer lower receiver from EP Armory, a part that is used to build rifles legally at home. The metal version of the receiver is legal due to being stamped with a serial number.
ATF and DOJ argue the plastic versions of the receivers are illegal because they don’t have serial numbers, even though they are the exact same part simply made of different materials. In this case ATF considers receivers firearms, not simply firearm’s parts. In past cases and situations, ATF has determined these parts are not firearms. Here is DOJ’s argument:
Plaintiff Lycurgan Inc, dba Ares Armor (“Ares Armor”) is part of ATF’s investigation because it is in possession of approximately 6,000 of these unserialized AR-15 lower receivers. Further, Ares Armor is not a federal firearms licensee, so it cannot legally engage in the business of dealing in these firearms, let alone ones that do not bear the required manufacturer’s mark and serial number.
Over the weekend and under pressure from the Department of Justice Judge Sammartino reversed the restraining order and heavily armed ATF agents raided the company in full tactical gear. Most of the raid was caught on video and ATF confiscated materials (plastic receivers) and the customer list Ares Armor was trying to protect. Before the raid, undercover and plain clothed ATF agents were reportedly questioning customers outside of the store.
If you have purchased an 80% lower receiver from a storefront location or over the Internet from any vendor, I think it is safe to assume that the federal government either has your customer data, or is in the process of trying to obtain your customer data. If you want a truly anonymous 80% lower, pay cash via a private sale, the same as you would with a serialized firearm.
We all know the 2nd Amendment is under constant attack, it is just part of life in the US(S)A. Some days more than others, today appears to one of those days.
Here is some basic information for anyone that doesn’t know. The lower receiver of an AR-15 is the part that is serialized and what the government considers a “firearm.” All the other parts, upper receiver, barrel, trigger etc… don’t require background checks and can be purchased fairly easily.
An 80% lower receiver is just what it sounds like, it is 80% complete. People buy these and do the remaining 20% of the work. The advantage to doing this is that an 80% lower isn’t considered a firearm. One can buy it, finish it on a mill and build a fully functional AR-15 without a serial # (it is still recommended that it be serialized in some way so that it can be identified as in fact yours), background check or registration of the firearm as long as it is only for your own personal use. (Note: You can’t buy these in bulk, finish the 20% and build rifles for resale because then you would be a manufacturer).
Because it opens up the possibility of firearms that they don’t know about, the government and anti-2nd Amendment cretins are not very fond of this arrangement while. At the same time it greatly appeals to people who value firearm ownership anonymity adn realize the possibility of registration lists leading to confiscations (keep an eye on CT).
I learned about 80% lowers a few years ago and was amazed at the price spike they demanded after the tragedy in Sandy Hook. While researching 80% lowers in the past I stumbled across Ares Armor. They made what looked like quality upper assemblies, complete lowers as well as 80% lowers so I signed up for alerts from them. I have never purchased any products from them but get regular newletters/alerts on deals and new offerings that I may or may not be interested in. Ares Armor also offers an 80% polymer lower that is easier for the hobbyist to complete. The lower is color-coded, the owner finishes the last 20% by machining away the white plastic, drilling a few pin holes and they are left with a functional lower (see pic below).
I just recently received an email from Ares Armor that explains the actions being brought against them by the ATF.
My hope is that my two-bit blog gets some play regarding this issue to make sure the word gets out as much as possible.
Don’t think for one second that the fascist government that currently in charge will let up one bit until all of us mundanes are transformed into unarmed slaves. Please don’t hesitate to pass this letter from Ares Armor on in any form to get the word out.

TO: Whom It May Concern
FROM: Dimitrios Karras, CEO Ares Armor
SUBJ: Temporary Restraining Order Against BATFE
DATE: March 12, 2014
Sir or Ma’am,
Last week the BATFE Raided EP Armory based on a determination letter that had deemed the 80% Polymer product to be a firearm. The determination letter that the BATFE used to obtain warrants against EP Armory is based on incorrect information about the manufacturing process. The BATFE has been notified of their error and the incorrectness of their determination based on this error.
This week on Monday, March 10th the BATFE threatened to raid us even though they are fully aware that their determination letter is factually incorrect. They requested that we turn over a list of every customer that had purchased a polymer lower from us and turn over the remaining inventory that we have.
Our customer’s privacy is of the utmost importance to us. I cannot in good moral conscience turn over a list of names to the BATFE just because they unduly threaten us with an unjust raid based on information they KNOW TO BE FALSE!
For the time we are SAFE! We were granted a Temporary Restraining Order against the BATFE on March 11th. The following is the declaration that I made during the process of obtaining this TRO:
Declaration of Dimitrios Karras, CEO Ares Armor
In regards to the events surrounding Ares Armor’s interaction with EP Armory’s products and the threats made towards Ares Armor by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE.) The following declarations are true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
I, Dimitrios Karras, state:
1. During a meeting with the BATFE around the end of 2012 that was unrelated to EP Armory’s product, the Agent that was present very strongly requested that I turn over Ares Armor’s customer list. He intimidated me with the possibility of criminal charges if he was not satisfied. This was the first attempt the BATFE made to intimidate Ares Armor into turning over private customer information.
2. An 80% lower is an industry term for an unfinished receiver that is not considered to be a firearm.
3. EP Armory manufactures an 80% lower receiver made from polymer.
4. Ares Armor purchases and then resells many products one of which is the 80% Polymer Lowers that are made by EP Armory.
5. In the regular course of business I have seen many different 80% AR-15 receivers.
6. EP Armory’s product is no different than standard 80% receivers that are sold openly and that the BATFE has consistently determined to not be a firearm. EP Armory’s product is in compliance with previous BATFE Determinations and is not a firearm.
7. The BATFE has Raided EP Armory based on incorrect information about EP Armory’s manufacturing process. The determination letter written by the BATFE incorrectly classified the EP Armory product as a firearm based on faulty information. The BATFE was under the impression that EP Armory was making a firearm and then reverting back to the 80% stage by filling in the fire-control cavity. At no point during the manufacturing process by EP Armory is a weapon made and then reverted. The solid fire-control cavity is built first and the rest of the 80% casting is made around this “core” specifically so that their product at no time could be considered to be a firearm.
a. As can be seen in Exhibit 1-3. The BATFE has consistently determined that the machining operations that cannot be performed in order to not be considered a firearm are as follows:
1. Milling out of fire-control cavity.
2. Selector-lever hole drilled.
3. Cutting of trigger slot.
4. Drilling of trigger pin hole.
5. Drilling of hammer pin hole.
b. EP Armory’s product is consistent with the BATFE’s many previous determinations.c. At no time during EP Armory’s manufacturing process are any of the aforementioned 5 operations in a state that could cause a reasonable person to believe that EP Armory’s product would be considered a firearm.
8. The BATFE has been appropriately informed of their mistake. However, even though they have no determination that is based on fact, they are knowingly using their fiction based determination to intimidate Ares Armor with threats in order to inappropriately gain access to information that is private and should be protected.
9. I received communication on or about 3/10/2014 from our legal counsel (Jason Davis) that the BATFE was in the process of obtaining a warrant against Ares Armor based on their incorrect determination of EP Armory’s Product. I was advised that the BATFE had offered to forego obtaining a warrant if Ares Armor was willing to:
a. Hand over all of EP Armory’s 80% Lowers.b. Turn over Ares Armor customer’s private information to the BATFE.
In exchange for turning over our customer’s private information the BATFE said that they would not “raid” Ares Armor’s facilities and would not pursue “criminal” charges. This made me feel as if I was being extorted. I agreed to their terms in order to delay an impending and unjust raid against Ares Armor long enough to obtain legal protection under the law.
10. I have been unjustly threatened with raids and criminal charges in an attempt by the BATFE to obtain information that is private and protected. The BATFE has expressed interest in obtaining Ares Armor’s customer list in the past and is now attempting to strong-arm us with undue threats based on information they know to be incorrect.
11. I am now in constant fear for the safety of my employees, my customers and myself.
Executed March 10, 2014 Oceanside, CA
I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.

And some still think copfuks are their “friends”, (sigh….)
He says he wants to give his “left nut”, I say CT obliges and chops it off.
Or let him try and kick people’s door in by himself, no backup and no repurcussions from the state or his fellow copfuks. Let’s see how “brave” he is when the gang in blue doesn’t have his back.
Freedom Outpost www.FreedomOutpost.com March 10th, 2014
By Tim Brown
On Saturday, I informed you of a Connecticut police officer who said he wanted to bust through one patriot’s door and take his guns. This morning I spoke with John Cinque via telephone and he provided me with screenshots of the conversation that he mentioned in the video. Many people wanted to see the evidence of what John referenced in the video. Some thought it was nothing more than ploy since he was in the video with Connecticut gubernatorial candidate Joe Visconti. I won’t attempt to judge Visconti’s motives. However, the evidence is clear of what Officer Joseph Peterson of the Branford Police Department said, and in the course of the conversation actually spilled the beans on what gun registration is all about: Taking your guns, which every red-blooded, American gun owner knows already.
Take a look for yourself:
This article was written prior to speaking with the Branford Police Department’s Captain Geoffrey Morgan. Due to the efforts of a concerned citizen, Branford PD has begun an internal investigation. Freedom Outpost has learned that Officer Peterson has been placed on extended leave pending the investigation by Internal Affairs Investigation.
In the update to the previous article, we informed you that Freedom Outpost had obtained the entire conversation, which took place on Facebook, that John Cinque referenced in this video. Below is the substance of those comments and why it is important that we understand the mindset of Officer Peterson and law enforcement officers like him. (The quotes below were made on Facebook and there are a lot of issues with spelling and grammar, so for those who are sticklers over that, I’m just warning you. The links are to the actual screenshots.)
Peterson told several gun owners, some of whom he engaged were not from Connecticut,
“I give my left nut to bang down your door and come for your gun…”
While it is disturbing that an active law enforcement officer would say such a thing, consider the fact that he then went after another Facebook user by saying he was a “criminal law breaking psycho.”
Even more telling is Mr. Peterson’s response when those he is engaging over the issue of police enforcing laws such as the one in Connecticut, which require citizens to register their semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines. The fact that Mr. Peterson can’t distinguish between a semi-automatic rifle and an “assault weapon” should also raise concern.
Peterson was accused of wanting to enforce “Nazi policies,” which he said were “not nazi policy…,” but “a state statute.”
Sadly, history is not on the side of Mr. Peterson when it comes to this issue.
In fact, when it was brought up that Nazis could not use the excuse he was providing when it came to dealing with the Jews, he sounded just like the Nazis at Nuremberg and attempted to escape the ultimate logical conclusion of his position.
While Peterson said that he didn’t see what the big deal was to simply register the weapons, claiming that “Nobody wants to take his weapon…they want to take it because he didn’t register it…,” he then spilled the beans on why people don’t want to register their guns. When asked, “Why do they want it registered? For what purpose?” Peterson said, “So they know who’s got them (sic) that’s what the purpose is (sic) there’s no use for assault rifles anyways (sic) you want to own a register him just like your car.”
Here is where he tells gun owners what they already know: Gun registration leads to confiscation. If you don’t register your guns, which were previously legal before the law, they’re going to take them. If you do register them, it isn’t a matter of safety, it’s a matter of knowing who has what kinds of guns. Why is that important? Logically, it is to find them, when they enact the next step in their process, which is full gun confiscation, and as Mr. Cinque noted in his talk last year, none of this protects anyone nor does it stop mass shootings. It merely will define law abiding citizens as criminals.
Again, notice that Peterson cannot distinguish between the two kinds of weapons involved here. Peterson also attempted to draw a parallel between registering an automobile and a gun.
However, it is the demeaning nature of Peterson’s comments that indicate that he knows this won’t do anything. As one commenter pointed out, registration is simply another way to be taxed, and it is. However, Peterson scolded the commenter telling him to move somewhere else so he can “play with (his) rifle and not hurt anyone.” Think about that. Are people being hurt by law abiding citizens with semi-automatic rifles now in Connecticut? How would registering such a weapon keep anyone from hurting anyone? It won’t, but Peterson has already told us why they are doing it: It’s so they will know who have these rifles and who doesn’t. It’s not about safety, just like John Cinque told Republican representatives last year.
Peterson also told others that they were not going to fire their weapons in their homes in a residential neighborhood, presumably for protection, “because if it goes through the walls into a neighboring house and kills someone then you will truly be a felon.” One wonders how registering any gun will keep that from happening. In fact, according to Peterson, policemen have registered their semi-automatic rifles that they use. I wonder if they will be felons if they fire in a residential neighborhood and kill someone. I’m betting the will be handled a bit different, don’t you?
Peterson then mocked a commenter’s position connecting gun registration to confiscation. “Nope not at all still not an excuse to break the law (sic) register your gun and you won’t be breaking the law… you say the criminals don’t have to register theirs… what’s that if you can’t beat them join them mentality…,” he wrote. “But if it’s a law I enforce it (sic) I don’t make them.”
Then out of nowhere, Peterson played the race card. “Hey everyone good luck with Cameron who (sic) he comes to your door as a medic if you’re a racist like he is a (sic) don’t see how he could give your good medical care.”
This instance was completely off topic and no one still has a clue where or why it even came up.
John Cinque finally commented. According to Cinque, he and Peterson have been friends a long time, still John encourages others that not all in the Branford Police Department are like Joseph, nor do they think like him. He also responded to the comment by Peterson, in which he claimed that he didn’t get to pick and choose which laws he enforced. In other words, from Peterson’s perspective, if it’s a law, even an immoral one, he would enforce it. This is important as he was given the scenario that took place in Nazi Germany which led up to mass exterminations, along with gun confiscation.
Cinque simply reminded Peterson, “I am glad there (sic) a good cops like you double do your job and follow orders no matter what (sic) then again there was something in our past call the Nuremberg trials but that’s for another conversation. And Joe they absolutely do want to take the guns all of them but then again that is for another conversation.”
If you think the conversation was going down at this point, you would be right. Peterson encouraged everyone to register their rifles and magazines and then if they came to confiscate them fight. Well, now, why would he want them to fight? After all, confiscation would be part of that whole “enforcing the law” thing that he was on a diatribe about, right? Does he not realize he’ll be the one doing the confiscating? Or will he have a breakthrough moment and say, “Hey, wait a minute, I can’t do this”?
John Cinque implored Peterson to remember that he is not the only one in his house, but he is the only one that has access to his weapons; so he reminded Peterson that if he were to come to his house for his guns not to shoot his son, who might be holding a XBOX controller, or his wife holding a cell phone.
Peterson went on to claim that John was making threats, when in reality all Cinque had done was to simply affirm his position of non-compliance in registering his guns. Cinque told him there was no threat. He also indicated that he never said he would win if the police showed up, but did finish by stating, “Last time I checked I still have my First Amendment rights…unless you want those also.”
Peterson even went on from what he perceived as a threat to mock John’s Christian faith saying, “Be nice John you carry the bible right? Then don’t talk like a man that doesn’t.”
Cinque responded, “Don’t know what my faith in Jesus Christ has to do with my comments above… othe than the fact that my freedom is granted to me by God… not man… but that is a conversation for a whole other thread.”
Clearly, the conduct and language in the interaction is unbecoming of a law enforcement officer. However, that aside, the realm that we are now moving into where history is not even being acknowledged about the road we are going down and how willing law enforcement is willing to go down that road with corrupt political leaders should be enough to alarm anyone.
