I can't believe this thread is still nuclear.
I am siding with Scubie here. The whole story has not come out yet.
Facts being facts, the cops don't show up on your door and put you in a state run psychological testing camp because you "farted sideways and offended a co-worker".
We don't have all the facts. Period.
ASSUMING that the cops merely did this because they had little else on their plate and were just looking to impede a persons' rights is foolish.
Fact: The guy was on administrative leave and we don't know why
Fact: The guy bought a couple of high dollar weapons, in a two-day/three-day period, while on administrative leave.
Fact: Someone reported this and was concerned.
The cops could have chosen to ignore it.
Extrapolate this out to the worst possible scenario.
How many of you are going to be posting that you have NO IDEA what the LEO's were thinking when confronted with an obvious problem situation and they did not act. Now "X" people are dead or in intensive care.
Wait for the FULL STORY before we get the gang together and get some rope.
