Everyone's a suspect: Colorado police handcuff every driver on the road

 Reports of a bank robbery in Colorado this week prompted the police to make a split decision to try to catch the culprits. Cops held over a dozen people at gunpoint in Aurora, CO on Saturday while they searched for suspects.

A spokesperson for the Aurora Police Department is standing up for the way local law enforcement officers handled reports of a bank robbery this week. Working off of a “reliable” tip that an armed suspect was stopped at a red light after robbing a Wells Fargo bank branch, cops drew their guns and pointed at every driver and passenger halted at an Aurora intersection.

A wells Fargo bank... It could not have happened to a more deserving bank.

 Tyranny will stop only at the muzzles of our guns.  Short of that tyranny will grow into the grotesque monster of those in the past - and we will foolishly ask, "How did this happen?"

When police break the law by pointing guns at innocent people at random, break their Oath of Office by breaking the law, use threat, duress, intimidation and coercion to get permission to do illegal automobile searches, they are NOT acting like Nazis. Nazis did what they did according to their government law. These cops didn't even obey the law! They are way worse than Nazis.

You can see that, if we happened to be a little further along into the police state, these cops would have thrown everyone into the paddy wagon and hauled them to the cop station. Then while the people were away from their cars, the cops would have ransacked the cars, stealing anything they could lay their hands on. They probably would have stolen some of the cars! So you see, the Bill of Rights is still working somewhat.

Then, in all of it, the cops didn't even catch the robber. They only apprehended a suspect. But the media people would love to call it catching a robber, even though the suspect has not had a chance to make it to trial. So we can see that the media is part of the brainwashing method pushing us away from freedom into fascist slavery.

Everybody who loves freedom is praising the way Lew Rockwell handled the explanation of what was going on with this anti-freedom, police-thuggery issue.

Criminals and those who have brushes with the law, rejoice when LRC twists stories for readers to hate cops. By putting their lives on the line, good cops give them a hard time. Because diligent cops prevent them from doing what's in their criminal mind, criminal elements call cops "Nazis". That's all what they can do while still outside of jail, until cops come and get them and put them inside!

DON'T BE DECEIVED ... is doing it again!


Lew Rockwell blog objected that the robber/s were caught, as if it was objecting to the way the robber/s were caught! That’s how this anti-Government blog site deceives the public!


I commend the way the bank robber/s was caught. There was no other way. The robber's car was among the 25 other cars stopped in the red light traffic.


In this situation, to catch the robber/s was not easy. The pursuing police officers and law enforcers had to carefully go from car to car and with guns drawn and handcuffs ready, confront the occupants the way they should confront the culprit/s. That was a routine police job professionally done under such a difficult situation. took advantage of this situation by describing what law enforcers did as plain police "thuggery". Confronting car occupants to find out who among them were the runaway bank robber/s was pictured by this notorious Government-hate blog as violation of individual freedom. Portraying the arrest of the bank robber/s this foul and odious way is a stinking blow below the belt only practiced by professional scoundrels.


Remember what I said about LRC. It is a notorious anti-Government, anti-war and anti-State Hate Blog. It is one of those money-making hate-peddlers in the Web. Its modus operandi is to twist or slant the story for readers to hate the police and the U.S. Government. As a radical anti-State activist, LRC makes money in the Web by using its professional skill to discredit and humiliate the State and the U.S. Government.


If you want to know more about as a peddler of anti-Government-anti-State hate, read my previous comments here in Freedom Forum. I exposed LRC’s rascality and tomfoolery when it twisted the meaning of "torture" in the title of this article they concocted:

Split second decision to violate everyone's Rights...speaking of bank robbery, after the 42USB1983 civil action on everyone effected, think that city's insurance policy will be renewed?

"Punk, spit out that bubblegum, and don't give me any lip.  I've got an itchy trigger finger, brat!"

Oh, yeah, we own you.

I bet the city and cop shop will be paying off 10 times more in law suits then what was ever robbed from the bank. If there was a life at stake or a possible kidnap and a life was saved, I could almost accept the end justified the means and I think most would agree, but over money? I hope everyone  who was falsely arrested  that day files a major lawsuit and those responsible for this happening held accountable including arresting them for treason.
