For all you conservatives that are always yelling about federal government overreach:

Is this the new Gestapo?

Why? It's the way that tyrannical governments have always operated.

There is no similarity between the missions of law enforcement and the military. Thus, military equipment, weapons, and tactics are inappropriate to law enforcement (I don't mind the uniforms so much). However, don't be thrown by Capt Gregory Prickett 's response. It's a non sequitur. He just loves to throw out nonsense like that to vent his spleen over President Trump's election. Indeed, if you look at it without prejudice, you'll find that the Trump Administration has done much to eliminate the tyranny of the Obama Administration (remember President Obama's infamous declaration about having a "pen and a phone" to dictate the laws he wanted if Congress failed to act the way he wanted? Now, that's tyranny!

I heard the story on NPR. It sounds like it's against the law. They grabbed the wrong suspect. To may pieces of krapp idiots walking around Portland anyway destroying everything. We have right wing pieces of krapp who don't want the federal government to go on the land and now we have the Radicals from all flavors. The city of Portland has had a lot of Racist types for ever. The federal government is just standing its ground but doing so in the wrong way. The city and even the state has a lot of bad or potentially Troublesome people. I can't apologize for the federal government but Portland may have some of the radicals who fled the chop zone of Seattle and now are looking for something to do.

LCpl Leo Morrissey I don't know what is problem is because he and I have had decent discussions and he even endorse me one time. The endorsementis on file on my history on rally point. I don't know what he has to prove. I can't help his drive to be so against something we can't prove anyway.. Just like in the military, I try to find who the subject matter experts who are in my unit. I may not care that they're straight, gay, atheist, ethnic background or religion. I try to treat them all equally. I try to be fair and use their skills that they have handy. I have found out that the more I learn, the more I found out that I don't know. Captain prickets problem like president trump, he so used to being attacked that he has reactive armor and kevlar protecting his heart and ego so no matter what you tell I'm, it makes no difference. Hes already anticipated that so he can cut off any sense of feeling. That's what I do when I get attacked from out of the blue. In this case, I wasn't even trying to insult him at all yet he said that I didn't listen to him. Yes, I Missed his feed or line of questioning what I didn't do it to ignore him on purpose. This should be the rand corporation research and development not stump the chump LLC. We all have put in thousands of years of military service here on rally point and we have tons of knowledge and some people have special skills. He is skilled in pointing out things in The Bible that have been inconsistencies. I knew that but at that's not my sole purpose in life. He has a legal background and lawn force and background so his collective experience could be very helpful and we're trying to figure stuff out.
Just have more resiliency. I do have a limit. One assholed major once told me how in the hell did you ever become an officer? I went to JP4 on the rally point staff and showed him what he said and that major did not stay on rally point.
And like Forrest gump says, that's all I have to say about that....

LTC (Join to see) - In the second comment on this thread, you wrote: "You are right, the federal government should just leave the city and let it burn to the ground and not give federal Money when they ask for it..."

I have never said anything approaching that. Not once. So I asked you to clarify, and you did, when you followed it up with a comment that "captain cricket and others have tried to insult my integrity and intellect when I'm talking about specifically their problem and other problems related to nobody wanting to enforce good order and discipline of the city."

Next, I normally read all posted sources and will state when I do not, but I will point out when a source is crap, from either side. I don't cite to those sources as a general rule, whether it be the Blaze on the right or the Democratic Underground on the left.

If that's not what you meant, fine, I'll accept that. Communication is always more difficult online than in person.

Capt Gregory Prickett Understood, Greg. Yes, I was apologizing to you. I just re read what you told me that I said about you when I'm sorry that I put words in your mouth or characterize something when I was just rambling. Thank you for the story on Leo. I spent another hour tonight watching or reading about the Siege of Portland. The Portland leadership do not want to work with the federal government. It is true that some of the people going back-and-forth from Portland to Seattle and now back the Portland again. There was more destruction in Seattle. People with baseball bats. I think further intelligence and the use of drones by state and federal agencies will be able to eventually start selectively arresting these troublemakers. Some make it their cases thrown out because of civil rights violations but I think others will be done properly and they will have the evidence beforehand and not snatch someone who was innocent like what happened last week.
