Pre-Crime Policing (Updated) - by Radley Balko

• Reason
To hear them tell it, the five police agencies who apprehended 39-year-old Oregonian David Pyles early on the morning of March 8 thwarted another lone wolf mass murderer. The police "were able to successfully take a potentially volatile male subject into protective custody for a mental evaluation," announced a press release put out by the Medford, Oregon, police department. The subject had recently been placed on administrative leave from his job, was "very disgruntled," and had recently purchased several firearms. "Local Law Enforcement agencies were extremely concerned that the subject was planning retaliation against his employers," the release said. Fortunately, Pyles "voluntarily" turned himself over to police custody, and the legally purchased firearms "were seized for safekeeping."

 The lawyers will have a field day with this one. He won't have to worry about having a job for a long time. I want to see how they try to worm their way out of 4th ammendment violation. They need to be made an example of so this never happens again. NRA and ACLU go get em !!!!!!!!
