EPA goes paramilitary, conducts armed raids with 'POLICE' jackets, checking for water qualit

 According to the Alaska Dispatch newspaper, which reported on the incident Sept. 3, "agents with the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force surged out of the wilderness around the remote community of Chicken wearing body armor" and jackets, leaving residents stunned, confused and most likely a little ticked off.

From the paper:

Did it really take eight armed men and a squad-size display of paramilitary force to check for dirty water? Some of the miners, who run small businesses, say they felt intimidated. Others wonder if the actions of the agents put everyone at risk. When your family business involves collecting gold far from nowhere, unusual behavior can be taken as a sign someone might be trying to stage a robbery. How is a remote placer miner to know the people in the jackets saying POLICE really are police?

Sounds like we need a Government agency whose sole job is to drop in unexpectedly on other Governmental agencies to check them for the legality of their operations. Imagine a Federal SWAT suddenly dropping in on your local police or sheriff's department, all in full body armor, carrying assault rifles, and not answering questions. Imagine a DPS highway patrol car that had just stopped a motorist for speeding, suddenly being surrounded by the Federal SWAT, who cuff the officer, and make him sit on the side of the road for an hour while they inspect his vehicle for safety and other issues... while they send the motorist on his way because they are too busy with the cop to be interrupted by a motorist.
