2. Welcome to Orlando, Florida. Home of Disney World. We mean LAW AND ORDER.
No harassment is too small for us to make minorities feel like 2nd class citizens.

3. All the nonsense is
giving credibility to the people screaming for limited govt. These people have so much time and money that they can afford to raid a harmless barber shop. Sad day in America

4. Doesn't have anything to do with a big/small govt
You think the police in 3rd world countries just keep to themselves because they don't have the money to harass?

15. Sure they would, if it cut their taxes...
...they'd just wink and nod as the police found new revenue streams, like asset confiscation.

24. Like the DEA does now. No, the right wing never cuts the cop budget - they just privatize the police

5. Somehow lawful policeing seems not quite so when carried out by Nazi stormtroopers.
Edited on Sat Nov-13-10 04:38 PM by herbm
Assuming of course that it is lawful to begin with. Even the helmits look like Nazi paratroop helmits. SCARY STUFF.

7. Anybody thinking of going to Orlando needs to think twice.
For my part I will never set foot in Orlando again. I think a boycott is in order. It is the only way to fight back.

18. In the stories I read about these raids it was mentioned that the barber shops were
the places where political issues were discussed and activists planned or disseminated information.

Since these raids started before the elections, it was speculated that the real purpose of the raids was to intimidate people to refrain from political activities and to keep people of color (usually Democrats) away from the polls.

10. I think this has more to do with conditioning the public to the presence of black clad armed to the
teeth police so that at some future date we'll simply not pay attention to their activities. Oh, it's just the police performing their duty, never mind. Meanwhile Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Addington, et al go free because we "need to look forward not backward."

13. Wealthy white people
are cowards. Poor white people are their cheerleaders and pawns. I say this as an (unfortunately) white person. Ugh.

21. You don't think this happens to white people too?
You should come visit my all white rural Southern county. I'm sorry about your misfortune for having been born white, but if you wish, you may take some consolation against your self-loathing by knowing that no one asked you what color you wanted to be born.

25. My county isnt all white but it's a Southern mix of wealthy and poor
and rural white/black poor folk.
Although the white folks often tend to be meth-heads when you see SWAT going into 'trailer' in the backwoods it's the 1st thing we think of around here. The destruction to homes and families the SWAT do regardless of the reason they are there is frightening. That will give a person PTSD and a child PTSD towards police and maybe all authority figures for life.
The folks in poor rural counties all through America have their rights trampled on all the time, they accept poor living conditions, the jobs are gone, farms worthless and few outside of these communities have any idea what goes on within them. Or how much help they need.

It's a sad day in the USA when shite like this goes down.

Cheers
Sandy

29. Absolutely, because we are all equal and racism is a thing of the past. But I am having a bit
of trouble finding where the swat team is busting in on white community gathering places, especially where it is known
that they gather and discuss political issues, and especially where they are spending so much in time and resources
arresting people for misdemeanors, especially just before an election. I am sure it is just a coincidence that this is in
a country where "the national incarceration rate for whites is 412 per 100,000 residents, compared to 2,290 for
African Americans, and 742 for Hispanics", link here....


Would you mind posting the link to that video?

16. Whose show or whatever is this?
Is this a progressive local-to-Orlando TV show? I cannot see who put this together. This is very, very frightening. Yes, notice these small businesses belong to people of color.

NO WAY would there Stormtroopers have busted into a fucking Wal-Mart to see if they were "legal" and that all their paperwork was in order.
