8. Is this for The Spectacle?

The tank being symbolic of a Fascist regime parading on home soil?

Really, the sweeps are bad enough, but the symbols are foreboding. This display is relevant in more than one way.

I keep tragically and figuratively joking that I'm waiting for the tanks to roll in, and now the tanks have literally rolled in.

plague and keeping our eyes down and hurrying past when we couldn't.

22. Freaking unbelievable!

Really, you're going to hunt down and harass hispanic families—men, women, children, and their pets—in a fucking TANK!??? With a fucking guy with a machine gun sitting atop it? WTAF! Trump and his racist, fascist regime really, really want to make our country like Russia, China, Turkey and all the other countries who rule their citizens with an iron fist. And they want to use the police and military, and now apparently armored vehicles, to do so. This makes me sick. WTF!? Shocking that this is happening in the city New York. Can't the governor and other DEMOCRATIC elected officials stop this disgusting abuse of power?

ICE spokesperson claimed the armored Bearcat was used to arrest a "high risk" criminal suspect. They didn't say what the charges were or name of the suspect.

28. According to NY1, it wasn't an ICE operation.

QUEENS, N.Y. - A large armored personnel carrier operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security rumbled into a Queens neighborhood Wednesday morning, alarming local residents.

A NY1 viewer took the photo, seen above, on Forest Ave near Norman Street in Ridgewood.

A federal source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the military-style vehicle, known as a BearCat, was being used by a Homeland Security Special Response Team to arrest a criminal suspect. The source said the "target has been taken into custody."

snip==================================================================

On Thursday, City Hall spokeswoman Olivia Lapeyrolerie said, “This was a federal criminal investigation into a firearms suspect, not immigration enforcement. About 50 guns, including a machine gun, gun parts and ammunition were seized. We refer any further questions to the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Prosecutors.”

The presence of agents wearing Immigration and Customs Enforcement jackets had triggered concern in the neighborhood that it was an immigration raid.

29. What date?

Why would they do this? A display of force?

I hope we take back the WH, and the Dem Pres makes the changes needed.

Such happenings should always be reported to the public. Some journalist should have asked about this.

The Trump regime, bringing shame to our country.
