First Hour - William Kostric (New Hampshire Protester with a Gun) -
Obama coming to Arizona and Phoenix... again Aug. 16th and 17th
An hour before the radio show I'll be meeting with two officers from Phoenix Police's 'Confrontation Prevention Squad'. They have changed their name because that was too _confrontational_ :) They are now known as "Community Service Officers".
Since 1994 during the height of the "Militia Scare" Arizona was on the top of the government lists then as well. Before Janet Napolitano was head of "Homeland Security" she was Arizona Governor. Before being Governor she was Arizona Attorney General,... and before that she was Asst. US Attorney General under Bill Clinton and Janet Reno during their "Militia Hunting" years. Before _that_ she was a criminal defense attorney that kept crooked politicians out of jail (that would then later be her co-chief of staff when she was governor).
Sooooo, you can understand why the current rhetoric is noticed by me as a replay of phrases and events that led up to the Assault Weapons Ban, arrests of law abiding people and the loss of even more rights. I fear a manufactured incident that will be instigated by those that would benefit the most... Big Bubba Government.
So I will be attending events on Monday, I will be broadcasting live with our remote equipment ( better use it, it cost enough :) exercising Free Speech,... and our right to defend ourselves,... a 'two-fer'. But since I know which officers to contact that know me and have the job of protecting the rights of those that are peaceful exercisers of their rights (from those officers and government agents that are less informed) I'm not too worried. Which is why I invited them to meet with me tomorrow at the FreedomsPhoenix Workshop right before the radio show.
They are afraid of the same things that we are... what they do about it is always an individual decision.
