Search area for Frein
Recently, my friend Max posted this about The Eric Frein situation in Pennsylvania, and I decided to expand on this idea, and give some of my recent, and prior thoughts (two old posts from my other blog) on what is happening right now in PA. The search for Frein started on September 12th, and continues to the present (a month and a half later). How long do you think this search would have been allotted, if it was a civilian that had been murdered in an identical event. Three days, a week, maybe? In all honesty, I doubt they would have even searched for three days….HYPOCRISY MUCH? Then, let’s talk cost. How much do you think the search has cost taxpayers? They have shut down hunting areas, and schools over this manhunt. These actions, even though Governor Corbett said this, “The night of the incident … he had the opportunity to shoot civilians at the Blooming Grove barracks at the same time he shot police officers” but did not.”

“Pennsylvania state police have been joined by law enforcement officials from New York and New Jersey state police, the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and other federal agencies. The FBI alone has between 140 and nearly 200 of its staff in the field each day, Hanko said, including agents, analysts, technicians, three full SWAT teams and members of a hostage rescue team.” THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ONE GUY, WHO HASN’T BEEN SHOWN TO HAVE ATTACKED ANYONE SINCE SEPT. 12! Sound familiar. Watertown maybe? They have displaced families while looking for this guy, with no true rational reasoning behind these infringements. I’ve heard a number of reasons that Frein supposedly had for the original attack, and I’m not going to list them, since I have yet to see any of them verified. Apparently a number of searches have been made without warrants, I’ll quote Prince Law from Max’s earlier noted post, “The State Police have been searching this area for two weeks. And while we applaud the fact that many recent searches have been conducted pursuant to valid warrants, that fact does not excuse the warrantless searches without probable cause of individual cars and homes.” This is exactly right! Exigent circumstances, do not allow them to violate the Constitutionally guaranteed (not given) rights of Americans.
Americans are being tested again, and failing abysmally. Here’s an example “I’m in the safest place in America right now with all these policemen and SWAT teams around,” Charlie Babaz said from behind the counter of Mountainhome Antiques. This kind of attitude is what allows Thugs to conduct “Business as usual.”, and makes them realize they can get away with it. As Prince Law said in Max’s earlier post, the police are under no obligation to protect you. So why are they shutting areas down? Because they’re being allowed to. They are setting “Precedents” that can be referred to later, as a raison d’etre for other situations, it’s that simple.
If you are a Patriot, a believer in Rightful Liberty, don’t fail this test when it comes to your neighborhood (and it will, you can believe that). Wargame in your head how you will deal with it if personally confronted with this situation, and speak out when you see these infringements taking place or being talked about among others.
LEO’s searching for Frein
Here’s two other posts penned last year, concerning the Watertown/Boston bombing debacle.

Not With A Bang, But With A Whimper
In this post, I’m not going to bore you with what I speculate really happened at the Boston Marathon, because as troubling as the circumstances leading up to the bombing were, the aftermath is what shows us where the real problem is. LOCKDOWN! What exactly is a lockdown? Apparently a “Lockdown” is when the government knows they don’t have the authority to declare martial law, but they want to do it anyway. A “Lockdown” is something that is done to a prison after a serious incident, to contain a situation. Do you understand what I just said, the people in of that area were treated like convicts serving time! One 19 year old man, was able to scare the law enforcement, and administrators of that area, so bad, that they took away the everyday (fourth amendment) freedoms of the local populace, till they felt it was all clear. And they still didn’t find him, till a civilian (just released from his home by his benevolent captors) noticed something out of the norm in his back yard, and called the police.
Give me a break people. The ancestors of the people in that area are turning over in there graves right now, seeing how their descendants have become an emasculated husk of the people they once were. At least the British went to that area with the intent of taking on more than on 19 year old, and they did it with less men. The response by those in authority was so over the top and out of line, that they should be held criminally liable for the gross violations inflicted upon the people of that area, in the name of “public safety” and “security”. Some of the pictures I’ve seen, showing people being forced out of their homes at gunpoint, showing their “papers” to National Guardsmen and others, and being required to allow a search of their homes by individuals (with no warrant) who can be best described as “Kevlar Commandos”, makes me sick to the point of nausea.
If it wasn’t bad enough, that the Republican’ts presidential nominee, Mittens Romney, hadn’t already tried to disarm them. Now they have law enforcement from everywhere East of the Mississippi, and a few from across the river, descending on their little burg like locusts on a cash crop, all while telling them “We’re from the government, we’re here to help.” or, “Let the ‘Professionals’ handle it.” Guess what, the “Professionals” didn’t handle it, an unarmed civilian did, and good for him and his situational awareness.
It seems like this is a recurring theme recently. Dorner in Cali raised the blood pressure of a few LEO’s, to the point of having some serious incidents (I don’t call those accidents, they were done on purpose), because some cops pull triggers first, and ID later. Is this the way things are gonna go from now on? I’ve got an idea, why don’t we show every terrorist in the world how to shut down our society. Oops, to late, we just did, and to make matters worse, they now realize they only need about 35 guys to shut down the entire country, that’s only the size of an Infantry platoon. Are you kidding me? Where are the Americans that actually have the guts to stand up for something, and put those evil bastards on notice with these words “NOT ON MY WATCH” and will make sure the Government realizes it applies to them, as well as the terrorists who mean to do harm to OUR country.
I believe Franklin said something to the effect of “If you are willing to give up some of your freedom, for a small amount of perceived security, you don’t deserve either.” Freedom requires work. It requires us to keep track of what our representatives are doing at all levels, not just the federal one. I am as guilty as anyone of not following up, and keeping these guys accountable. Recently I have addressed my lack of enthusiasm for dealing with politicians, and I plan on doing my part as much as I hate dealing with them. It’s easy to say “What can I do, it’s useless?” or “I can’t make a difference”, but we have to use all peaceful means at our disposal, before we choose the final option. I understand your frustration, and I’m right there with ya, but you need to be able to look yourself in the mirror, and say with a clear conscience that you did everything you could, before you consider the last option, only you will know the truth.
War is a terrible thing, but there are times when it is a necessary evil. Gen R.E. Lee said, it is good that war is so terrible, lest we grow to fond of it. As a combat veteran, I understand what he meant, and hope to not have to see another one in my lifetime. Incidents like LA, and Boston make me realize that the hope I had is fading fast. Unlike alot of people, Veterans have a clear duty. We took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. If you meant that oath, but have done nothing but complain, you are the problem, because unlike civilians, you know better, and have put it on the line before. To LEO’s I say this, you took an oath also, and saying “I was just following orders” under the auspices of “Public safety” doesn’t cut it, and eventually you’ll be held accountable. You have a clear Constitutional responsibility to make the right and legal choice, and you’ll have no excuse when justice comes around, if you take the easy, safe route.
Do you have food storage, weapons and ammo, first aid supplies? Do you know how to use them? You better get on it people, time is short, and your town could be next. What are you gonna do if your under that “Kevlar Commando’s” gun, whimper, or exercise your God given rights as a FREE MAN? Remember, the nail that sticks up gets pounded down. If your one who will stand up for a free man’s rights, when no one else will, I’ve got your back, and will stand beside you. I’m a Sheepdog, we protect the sheep from the wolves, whatever breed they are. If you’re a tyrant or terrorist, I’ll let you in on a short and sweet saying I use, regarding your dealings with me, “Life is short, it’s shorter if your a thug.” I’ll summarize with another quote from Gen Lee which is at the header of my blog. “Do you duty in all things, you cannot do more, you should never wish to do less.”. Can you say you can do no more?
