    "What's worse is when the raiders have the wrong address. They enter like it's a home invasion by hoodlums and sometimes kill someone who's innocent, who's just trying to protect his or her home from unknown intruders."

    This may be my demise but I'll give em HELL till I can't!!! They will know that the Caveman don't play that game!!!

    Read my thread about being terrorized at the Canadian border.. I had my share of run-ins with crooked cops living in Portland, but I always still had a lot of respect for men with the badge. I can say I still do. However, after being detained, interrogated, searched and harassed by the Canadian border police, I can say I can relate to people's concerns about the militancy of the police.. We do not want our police forces to start having the power these border cops have...I was just reading that the Canadian border police's powers go beyond even the American's border patrols. Aside from killing you, they have the power to do just about anything to you and violate any right if they have any "suspicion" whatsoever of you. They have little authority over them and are left to their own discretion at the most part, which means you are essentially at their mercy. The American border patrol still has a lot more restrictions, despite the bad reputation.

    However, the American Patriot Act allows for any border police officer to immediately give authority to a home raid and seizure of your personal belongings if they feel you are suspect of any sort of criminal activity while being detained at the border. That means, if some guy is having a bad day and decides to label you as a "terrorist", whether he is a Canadian or American border official, he has the authority to issue a raid by American government officials, be it police or federal agents on your property via The Patriot Act.

    Well, I am going to take this in a very different direction. I like LEO's. I respect them. When they go after a bad guy I want them to win and the bg to lose. I have no interest at all if the fight is fair. I am all for overwhelming force, and if that's armored cars and snipers, heck ya!

    So go ahead and hate on my post...I really don't give a darn.
