    Home Defense Night Vision

    My intent is to discuss, in a scenario based format, the dilemma posed by the increased risk of armed home invasion and your potential responses to it. Firstly, let me lay out my assumptions for this discussion:

    1) Current ‘Law Enforcement’ policy has seen the proliferation of co-called ‘SWAT’ teams. ‘SWAT’ refers to a ‘Special Weapons and Tactics’ Law Enforcement team. However, due to insufficient selection and training for these teams, there is little ‘special’ and ‘tactics’ about them. Thus, for the purpose of this discussion I will be referring to them as ‘Home Invasion Teams’ or HIT teams.

    2) You and your family are law abiding citizens, for what that is worth in the current climate of authoritarian tyranny. As such, you are not expecting a home invasion. You would have no reason to do so. At worst, you may be in contravention of some unconstitutional local statute or ordinance, such as selling milk, or harboring Bambi, keeping standard capacity rifle  magazines, or some such other non-crime.

    3) If you actually expected a home invasion, then you would adopt different tactics. You would not be asleep in your home. You would prepare a defense and probably not actually be in your home. That is all a different topic, such as home / retreat defense in an SHTF environment, something that I cover in detail in ‘Contact! A Tactical Manual for Post Collapse Survival.’ Similarly, the assumption is that if you suffer a home invasion, the intent of the HIT team is not expressly to kill you and your family i.e. there remains a veneer of legality over this activity. However, death is still a very likely possibility as the result of a HIT raid. If there is no longer any veneer of legality, and you are suffering from kill squad attacks, then refer back to the SHTF point, and you have no choice but to establish defenses to repel marauders, or bug out, or both.

    contact-cover

    4) There are an increasing number of ‘no knock’ nighttime raids by HIT teams. There are also an increasing number of these raids that target the wrong address. There are also an increasing number of criminal (i.e. non Law Enforcement…er…) home invasions and a number of these raids have seen criminals wearing police/SWAT style uniforms – er…just to clarify, they were impersonating Law Enforcement, and they were not actually Law Enforcement personnel….still with me? I know, it’s confusing nowadays….the problem being that with a ‘no knock raid’ there is no announcement or expectation of a Law Enforcement visit. Back to point 2 above, you are ‘law abiding’ people, not a meth lab or some such other den of criminals.

    5) These HIT teams are often established but poorly or inadequately trained. The focus is no longer to ‘serve and protect’ but to hurt, threaten, endanger and control citizens, while ensuring that the ‘officers’ look to their personal safety. The focus is on the ‘officer’ “going home at the end of my shift.” This means that the HIT team tactics may be poor. They lack restraint. They are fearful. They lack fire control and discipline. If they raid your house, everyone in it, including the animals, is in great danger.

    6) The better way for Law Enforcement to deal with a visit to a home would be to phone ahead and discuss the matter. And/or send a couple of deputies or plain clothes detectives. You know, the way it used to be done when ‘Officer Friendly’ may have existed. If your grass is too long, in contravention of the homeowners association and local ordinances, perhaps they can discuss that. Maybe even offer to mow it on their time off. You know, hearts and minds and all that….However, if it is felt that there is sufficient threat of violence from the home, then have a HIT team on standby, secure the perimeter, place overwatch. You know; all those sensible tactical things. You know, for when the home is lived in by pesky tea bagger and constitutionalist types, crazy white cracker white gun clingers i.e. the holy grail of domestic terrorism. No: reserve your no knock 0300hrs raid for the den of drug dealers and actual criminals.

    Ok, so enough of the assumptions. Let’s take a look at this. We are going to have, for this scenario, a no knock raid at 0300hrs. You are the husband of a family with a wife and young children, and at least one dog. You are preppers and Patriots and you have firearms and ready gear. You personally have a tactical ‘crash bag’ with your personal tactical gear, battle belt, plate carrier (PC) and ruck. You have weapons readily available in the house in case of a home invasion: something like a handgun, shotgun or AR15. However, with young kids, these are not right there on the nightstand, they are either in a safe or up somewhere high, like on hooks in the closet. You only have the ammo readily available that is loaded into that firearm. The rest is in your gear or in the safe.

    You are asleep and not expecting a home invasion. At 0300hrs the first you may know of the raid may be something like the following, or a combination:

    1) Flashbang on a pole crashing through a ground floor window and detonating – hopefully not in the same place as your sleeping daughter.

    2) Your dog barking at the front door.

    3) Ram smashing into your front door (entry team stacked up behind)

    4) Security motion sensor light coming on outside.

    They may or may not announce with shouts of ‘Police’ as they smash the door. Even if they do, you will likely not hear this clearly and anyway this is what criminal home invasion gangs do anyway (er…). The stronger your perimeter security, such as your front door, the more delay you will have and time to come rapidly awake, orient and make a decision as to what to do. At this point, the only choice you have is to grab a firearm to defend your home and family against what must be a criminal home invasion. You haven’t done anything wrong, right? Why would a HIT team raid your house at 0300hrs?

    So you leap out of bed in your pajamas, grab a weapon (handgun/shotgun/AR), and run to cover the entranceway, however your house is laid out. You may be on the ground floor or covering it from a stairwell, for example. Depending on your reaction speed and the time it takes for the stack to ram through your defenses, depends on how the relative positions of you and the stack will play out. They may still be stacked outside, or they may already be boiling into your entranceway.

    This is where we bring in our different scenarios, and how they may pan out:

    A)  Realizing that this is a Law Enforcement raid, you decline to open fire. The stack comes in through the door. If you decline to fight, you better drop that weapon before they see it, or they will riddle you with bullets. At this point, you are putting your trust in the restraint of the HIT team. They now own you, your house and your family. Remember, they are poorly trained and afraid. They want to go home at the end of their shift. Your safety is not really their concern, only as far as any liability goes. If they kill or injure anyone, they will cover it up and get away with it. You are encouraged to pursue these actions within the system of the courts, but there will never be any satisfaction to be had there. The courts are corrupt and stacked towards the HIT team.

    Oh yea, and they just shot and killed your beloved family pet as they made entry.

    Remember: It is very important to note that any danger created by the HIT raid is unnecessary and purely created by the actions of the HIT itself. The very methods they use are creating danger, in particular for the home occupants. The HIT is liable, pure and simple, for their unnecessary militarized actions. Any threat to “officer safety” is greatly overborne by the threat to civilian victim safety, and entirely avoidable by the use of civilized methods, as opposed to the current thuggery.

    What to expect? If you are not killed immediately, you will have weapons pointed at you. You wife and kids will be rousted out of bed, the family dogs killed and laying around thrashing in front of them. Rifle barrels will be pointed at your family. Death is only a twitchy trigger finger away. You and your wife will be screamed at, cussed at, thrown to the ground and restrained. If you argue you will be tasered and beaten if not shot, until you ‘stop resisting.’ Anyone in your house who is slow to react, such as a handicapped adult looking relative or child, or an ornery old WWII veteran from the Greatest Generation, risks being shot and killed for not immediately complying with orders.

    The HIT team now owns your house and your family. They will tear it apart looking for whatever it is they are looking for, even if it is the wrong address. Your kids will be segregated until a social worker arrives to take custody of them. They are now wards of the state until you are freed. You property will be torn up. You will be cussed at and threatened by HIT team guys looking like military in their full gear. They will take all your legally owned firearms and you will never see them again.

    In my opinion, the only way to justify this submissive response is if you feel that opening fire will threaten the safety of your wife and children. You choose to submit to this outrage because on the whole you feel it is the less risky approach to keeping your children alive. Similarly to being captured by an enemy in war, sometimes to fight to the last is just suicide when you may need to swallow your pride and live to fight another day.

    If this happens to you, then when all is said and done you have a choice. You can choose, as encouraged to do, to pursue a futile and expensive battle in the courts. That is the decision to remain in the Matrix. Or, having now seen to the safety of your family, go get your gear and wage war to the death against the agency(s) that attacked your house and you family, killed your dog(s) and humiliated you and your wife. However, if you choose course number two, know what it means. It means your death, at some point, however many you take with you. Also, it means the death of your reputation: the child porn that will be placed on your computer, the reports from neighbors that you were a ‘crazy loner survivalist type who collected guns’, the allegations that you physically and/or sexually abused your dogs and the occasional squirrel. Make your decision. Some will never bend the knee to tyranny, whatever the cost. If you step outside the Matrix, you will be tracked and killed however long and whatever resources it takes. Are you up for it?

    B)  You open fire through the door. At this point, the scenario could go many ways. They could make entry and kill you. You only have the rounds that you have in the weapon that you grabbed. You may or may not take some of them down by hitting them in the face/head/hips/legs outside of their body armor. For this option B, you don’t kill any of them and they make entry. If they do not kill you straight up, which they will likely do, then we are back to option A but you are, if alive, definitely going to jail while you fight the case of the justified use of force. Recently this happened and the guy that fought it from jail ended up hanging himself in his cell when he eventually lost the case. If you are released on bail, you have the choice of staying inside or stepping out of the Matrix. Know the cost of stepping out.

    C)  You open fire, hit a couple of them in the stack as they are trying the ram the door in. Remember, policies have changed recently in Police Departments to where they will try and intervene immediately to an active shooter situation. However, active shooter is different to a barricaded armed suspect. In that situation, HIT teams will not make entry, but cordon and lay siege until it can be resolved. By resolved, look at Waco and Dorner – death by fire trapped in the building.

    So you hit a couple of them, cause chaos and they pull back. At this point it is likely that the house is not fully cordoned off, not yet covered by overwatch sniper teams. It’s not an entry made after a long siege, at least not yet – they probably just showed up in whatever ride they have nowadays, like an armored vehicle, and de-bussed onto your front lawn before stacking up at your door. It will become a siege now they have been repelled. You may therefore have a small window to escape, but not with your family. You may decide to take this option, grab your gear, and step outside of the Matrix.

    If you do, then you are on the run. You better know how to take to the hills and survive out there, wet cold/hot, hungry, thirsty, dirty, smelly. If you do this, know the consequences, there is no going back. You have to assume that your family will be able to safely give up the ensuing siege without being harmed. You now have to duty to engage in offensive operations against the tyranny that brought this outrage to your home. This is the John Rambo option, without the Special Forces Colonel coming to take you back in at the end.

    D) You hit a couple of them, they pull back – you run and grab the rest of your gear and weapons but remain in the house. Know that they will never give up. You are now on the news holding your family hostage. They will establish a cordon around the property and it will then be too late to escape without being killed by snipers. Don’t even think about trying to escape with your wife and kids. You may negotiate for the safe exit of your family. After that, you either give yourself up or die in the house. The siege will never give up, it will never go away. If you give yourself up, then you will go to jail and have to fight the case that you shot a couple of HIT team members. The more of a firefight you engaged in from your property, the more you are likely to be killed or never get out of jail. Also, the more likely that they will light the whole house up with indiscriminate fire and potentially injure or kill your family members. Or burn it down around you.

    Just to take this back to introductory assumption number 3: defending a home from inside is not a viable option. It is ultimately folly.

    There are two main themes through this post:

    1)  The need to take account of the safety of your family. In fact, this is really the only reason why a Patriot would submit to such tyranny, with the other exception that he is captured asleep where to fight would be suicidal folly AT THAT TIME. It has been suggested, and I agree that it needs to be done, that I write a post on family safety in an SHTF/Resistance scenario. That post will follow soon. I do write about this very thing in my novel: ‘Patriot Dawn: The Resistance Rises.’

    PatriotDawn_Small_Banner

    2) The need to consider what your actions would be following such a situation happening to you. Do you remain in the Matrix futilely thrashing about against the injustice of your wrecked house, infringed liberty, dead dog and humiliated family? Or do you make plans to step outside of the Matrix and wage war? Will others rise with you? Likely not, you will just be a news event until they get you. Don’t shelter in a cabin and die by fire, right! Keep low, move fast.

    Meanwhile: Nothing to see here folks. He abused his dog, he was crazy. Move along. Let’s all get back to typing our outrage on our keyboards as the slow soft bureaucracy advances the tyranny.

    When does tyranny become tyranny? When it is already here right?

    For an interesting video, HERE is the link to another one of those SAS Training videos that I have been posting. This shows a little of what the SAS Counter Terrorism Team gets up to, and how they do it. These guys, back in the day, originated all this hostage rescue stuff that has now become ‘SWAT’ – ‘all the gear no idea’ HIT teams.  Note that they show and use Waco as an example of how not to do it!

    (BTW: the show is about real terrorism, not the current fake stuff we are being terrified with nowadays.)

        It’s one of the best articles on the subject I’ve read in a while. Resistance IS futile in these situations, BUT, once it gets bad enough that NOT resisting is also futile in regards to self-preservation, then fighting back to the death seems the logical option…THEN, these SWAT thugs will feel some real fear.

        Imagine a prepper family who dug a tunnel from their basement to the free-standing garage, with a hidden exit on the back side leading to the neighbor’s yard. I know of one family like that. Their kids used to get dropped down a large laundry shoot into a bin of blankets and pillows in the basement. When they were young, they enjoyed the thrill of the ride down…it took only seconds.

        In today’s climate, it could save their lives.

        It pisses me off to no end, that we even have to have this discussion. The government seems to be the only violent criminal who can never lose, who never has to pay for their crimes.

        Somehow, THIS HAS TO CHANGE. I wish I had an answer for how to change it, but I don’t. I wish I believed it will get better, but I don’t.

        PRAISE THE LORD AND PASS THE AMMUNITION, PLEASE.

        • Eventually a HIT team will insert into a dwelling that is boobytrapped w/ IEDs. When that happens, you can look for them to be a little more circumspect and a little less eager.

        • Resistance is not futile if, and that may be a big if, you get together with your neighbors and prepare before-hand for this eventuality. Such raids would be stopped dead in their tracks if most people on your block agreed to shoot these bastards on arrival to your street, or as soon as they stepped out of their urban tanks. They only reason they are prevailing now is because there is no community resistance.

            WCIII- I’ve been thinking for some time that the only way we may be able to effectively fight back, for now anyway, is to form “mutual defense associations” with like minded people who live close enough to lend a hand. That way, someone tries (hopefully unsuccessfully) to raid your house- you make 2 phone calls to start the phone tree off and the rest of the members converge on your property. once the “HIT” team was suddenly surrounded by several guys with guns at their backs- the dynamic of the scenario gets flipped a full 180. hopefully it would at least buy you enough time to bug out. the hardest part of course is going to be to find people who will stand with you and keep their mouths shut.

              Thats why when they show up they have 100 to 150 to protect the team. Uniformed officers surround the neighborhood, block off all the streets, makes sure nobody interferes, regular officers dont even know whats going on. They just take orders.

              Christian Man, welcome aboard. I don’t know where you’ve been, but unfortunately, such incidents really do occur. You’re NOT a terrorist if you’re defending your home against ANYONE trying to force their way in. It’s not exactly “AVON CALLING” when armed thugs try to force their way into your home. Such people will have evil intentions toward you; you can go to the bank on it. we are faced with a federal government that has some of the worst intentions imaginable toward all of us. You say you’re christian; read your Bible for the scriptures that command God’s followers to stand against evil. there are also scriptures where Jesus commanded his disciples arm themselves with swords and if they didn’t have the money for them to sell their clothing or whatever else they had in order to purchase swords. Self-defense is biblical; it was ordained by God. to surrender to evil will certainly guarantee your death. These out-of-control cops do not serve the public. they serve government. there are federal and state supreme court rulings that will verify what I’m saying. braveheart

                interesting comment – However you term all these LEO’s as ill trained, and eager to kill. I find our Police are very well trained, in conducting a Raid, you and your pistol would not have a chance against a modern SWAT team. It would be the same as committing suicide, and possibly giving them an excuse to destroy your family.
                “Committing Suicide”, is in opposition to my Christian views. Survival is paramount, survival of you and your family!
                You do no good to your self, family, community if you are Dead.
                Get a grip and Life to pick your place and time to fight, not when you are outnumbered 10-12 to one or two. You are destined to die and give the PTB an excuse to add new and more restrictive laws.

                  Christian Man, you misunderstand part of my comments. No, not all LEOs are like that, just the ones who don’t have what it takes to question what they’ve been taught in the academies. There are those who have resisted the brainwashing. they are the ones who know how to think for themselves and see what is really behind all this militarization of civilian law enforcement. the only real purpose of it is to have LE used as tools of terror and oppression against the people. There is a criminal nature to law enforcement today that did not exist in the cops I grew up around back in the 60s. back then the public could really trust them. they really did protect and serve in the communities all across this nation. corruption in their chosen profession was almost unheard of. Same thing for the courts. Now the situation is a total 180 turnaround from what it used to be. I don’t dial 911 for any reason. I handle situations myself. I don’t have blind, unquestioning faith in LE or the judicial system because I know better. Christian, you sound sincere in your views and I’m being sincere with mine, so I think we’ll just have to agree to disagree. I’ll only ask you to google “swat team raids wrong address” or “police brutality” and you will have a gold mine of information as food for thought. Please wake up to what is really happening out here. Good luck. braveheart

              Boring? The only thing these thugs understand is force greater than theirs. If survive means on my knees hoping to win their fiat in their courts, the I’ll keep a full 30 round mag in my AK next to the bed. Ooohh, they violated my rights, give me some money. Sorry Charlie, I found out a long time ago how to deal with bullies and your way ain’t it. I’ve already decided to take them head on when it happens. I don’t kid myself about getting out alive. The plan is to take as many as possible with me. Maybe only one or two, but the rest will get it in their thick shaved heads that “we the people” will not take their aggression like we were Jews in WW2 Germany. And hopefully more will take them on as well. Maybe you’ll wish you had too when you’re sitting in a FEMA camp stressing your constitutional rights.

                I’m with you SR. I would rather die with my boots on fighting a just cause than just give up and ‘live to fight another day.’ If I don’t fight now, then just when do I fight? If having my rights violated isn’t a just cause, then what exactly is? Something needs to spark a re-set in this country and if it takes the blood of patriots to do it, then so be it.

                  Exactly. Like the guy who buries his guns so TPTB won’t find them. If they are buried how and when are you planning to use them and on whom? The time to use them is when they show up to take them. Imagine if the colonists hadn’t fought the British when they came for their guns. Would we even be having this conversation now? I don’t think so. Remember that when the inevitable happens, the last thing they are expecting is a fight. They aren’t ready for it. Take one or two out and watch them fall back like black rats. That being said, understand that as the article states, you probably will not get out alive. Deal with that fact, calm your mind, say a prayer and take out as many as you can before they take you out. Some of us HAVE to die so that others can live. The tree of Liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

                  If I were a drug dealer or some type of criminal it would be a different story. We’re not talking about that here.

                  I have read about Crazyhorse. He was a great warrior. He had a vision that took him to the south where the Lakota were supposed to go when they died. He came back and was given a medicine pouch to protect him in life. A few years ago I was in an accident and my heart stopped beating. The paramedics brought me back and ever since that day I have had zero fear of death. I know it’s not the end.
                  This life we live in is merely a proving ground for the next one. It doesn’t end here for us, it’s just the beginning. Keep in mind that the powers that be are evil. Not of this world and against God and all of us that refuse to believe in them. They know that in the end they will lose and we will win. They may win some things here on this earth but so what? The game they are playing is for our minds and our souls. I will never give up either. Why should I? So I can live out my days as a serf, kneeling before their armies? I made a promise to always try and do the right thing, sometimes I fail, but I keep trying. Don’t ever let them get inside your head or your heart. Keep your head and your heart for the Father above. I will gladly die if I have to to keep them out of mine. Like I said, I don’t fear death, it’s another chapter for my soul.

            There looks to be a lot of fear mongering by whomever for whatever reason, probably to instill chaos and impending havoc in our lives to get us fearful and undeceive. They know it’ll be difficult for your diction making process and extremely limit your choices when considering a reaction with either just you involved or having to consider your wife and kids. They know this and play on it.
            They already have Americans that for a paycheck will willingly triggeroff and gun down other Americans. All they need is a reason. If you break a law no matter what it is, in the right part of town in most cases, and if you resist any efforts on their part, that’s all they need. They go home at the end of their shift and you most likely go to the morgue.
            Remember; Officer Safety is paramount. Here’s why. Their taught a set of shooting parameters. Shoot inside these and you will be covered and protected. Economically it’s a lot easier and inexpensive to defend you and pay for a dubious shooting rather than pay for your survivor benefits should you be killed. That’s just money, numbers and odds. Everybody gets paid and you “the suspect” get dropped in a hole.
            Don’t think I’m saying that this in no way a shooting affects the offending officer, not in the slightest. Most green officers have not a clue of the effects of what they have done till it happens and they will deal with consequences for the rest of their lives. No matter how right. I have an acquaintance that back twenty five years ago in his career, he was involved in two that he has spoke about. It still bothers him today, it never goes away. One, he had a suspect that he was perusing came up out of his car pulling a trigger on a 380 hitting him. He pulled a shotgun out of the rack and returned fire hitting the suspect four times in the chest with 12 ga. 9 pellet high brass express at twenty feet. The one he has a real problem talking about was in the late 70s way out in the desert a long way from nowhere, there was this horrific truck crash. My late mother and father in laws were present. This driver was hopelessly trapped in the wreckage and there was fuel everywhere and it catches fire engulfing entire cab with the driver. He told me he was alive and talking before the fire, in bad shape but alive. He said the situation was hopeless and the screams were intolerable. He drew his service revolver and pulled the trigger once.
            This guy is a soft spoken a very nice and decent man. And he still has nightmares about these to this day.
            My wife and I believe heavily in Karma, I am a practicing Metaphysis. What you think about you bring about type thing or you reap what you sow. We refrain from considering what it would be if a 5 man stack came through the front door. Not saying we haven’t thought about it or failing to react to it but rather having trust in knowing that if it were to occur we would have guidance beyond us to deal with it. Trusting the whitelight for this guidance is all we need. Should we prevail, fine. Should we not, it might be time to get off of this rock on to a higher plane of thought. That’s fine too.
            There are thousands of actors in this play we are witnessing in front of us today in our country, hell, in the world for that matter. Tragic tails of all kinds on a daily basis in all locations. Inhumanity, cruelty of all kinds, mass killings shit just name it, it’s all there. Most likely it’s going to happen anyway. It’s your choice watch it, participate in it, run from it. Who knows what you or I might do. Maybe we’ll be shielded from it, that would be my guess.
            Bad people have bad things happen to them and they don’t know any difference. They don’t want to know another way, that’s what they know. A lot of times victims were bad people in prior life being taught now what it’s like being a victim of another. You won’t leave this place until you know both sides, should you choose. Should you choose to know what it is too willingly and woefully inflict pain, suffering, death and injury. Be assured of the “FACT” you will know the other side as well, you have no choice in it. Do one; most assuredly you’ll see the other.
            If you look at it in the right light long enough and honestly deep enough, with clarity you might see that there are in very few cases are if any such things as innocent victims.
            What would I do if an armed stack came through the door at four in the morning?
            I’m confident that I will have a clear and concise answer when it happens and in all probability will know my fate shortly thereafter.

              No such thing as Karma. No such thing as previous lives. Bad things happen to good and bad people. Good things happen to good and bad people.

              Hammerun, I also am a “practicing metaphysics”, have been meditating for most of my life. I don’t believe in violence either, pursue peace with a passion, etc.. However, my spiritual path teaches me that even though it is wrong to kill, there is a time and a season for everything under the sun.

              These are not ordinary times. Our government has been taken over by unsavory characters. Our lives are at risk. And under the circumstances, it is wise, IMO, to consider what to do when SHTF because it IS COMING!!! Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but sometime soon SHTF scenario will be here and we better be prepared!!

              There is no “if” about this… this stuff is coming. Unfortunately, no amount of positive thinking will change things. I think these are really great videos because they teach us what to do when things get rough. (Whether male or female!) (I’m female but have male name for this website.)

              Its better to be prepared than to be caught unaware. We all need to learn NOW, while we can, how to fight because TPTB are not on our side!!

                Maybe my composition skills need a little honing. I didn’t say I would just lay down and puppy up. Oh contraire! What I am saying is, situations like this are fluid. Decisions are quick, decisive and lethal, either side. I could be asleep and not hear it coming and wake up with a flash suppressor in the face. Or somebody out there gets a lucky shot in.
                Or they throw a burner in and burn us out.
                I’m not a full blown bible thumper, although I do believe but I believe in Spirit and the White light. Not fighting when in the presents of an aggressor is not in my DNA. But, going out and advertising that I’m looking for a fight is not a healthy idea.
                Nor am I one of those that are hiding in the back closet armed with a steak knife franticly dialing 911 as someone is kicking the front door in. Force would be met with force without doubt.
                Nefarious players and characters leading America today is without doubt at an all-time high and getting worse by the day. I haven’t done what I have done in the last 4.5 years because of Obama. It’s in spite of Obama. I saw this coming many moons ago and you are right “It aint over not by a long shot.”
                They are going to slow roll us to at some point they trigger something and then this place will look akin to Kosovo or Cambodia, Syria, Egypt take your pick aint none of them nice. I believe there are those that want a civil war here, it frees up a lot of assets ripe for the picking.
                No, no, no I have no delusions; we are in trouble, a boat load of it. But I believe there are those that are wildly deluded into thinking Americans in mass are going to just lay down without a fight. Have they got a surprise coming, the only problem is that the right faces won’t be out in the open where we can see them.

              Hammerun, I didn’t mean to imply that positive thinking isn’t worthwhile; of course, it is important to think positively… God is the most positive “thing” there is…He said, “let there be light” and there was light, we are made in His image, etc.

              However, I know what has happened to my country; I know that TPTB are no good; I know that they have working steadily to erode all our civil liberties (even the second amendment– the most important one!!) And I know what happens to a citizenry when their country has been turned into a police state (like the newly acquired United States). And since I DO KNOW all these things, it is icumbent on me to also know how to defend myself because TPTB are up to no good!!!

              I guess, basically, I’ve taken the red pill (its the red pill?) have gone down the rabbit hole and keep seeming to go further, looking for TRUTH and the truth is, REVOLUTION is the only way to save my country from the thugs that took it over! I’m a truth seeker. and now I need to learn how to survive the storm that’s coming. so… the video is good!

                @Sixpack;
                I too have had thoughts on that level and about just that topic. Here’s the only justification I can see.
                Stay with me here.
                If you are a bully do you not eventually run into somebody bigger that can bully you?
                If you beat the shit out of somebody doesn’t somebody beat the shit out of you?
                If you are a burglar, don’t you at some point get arrested tried and jailed?
                If you are a murderer, are you not murdered or incarcerated or put to death?
                But that is for the here and now.
                Humans are by nature, are self-punishing for the little stuff. If not, it will certainly be with you for the rest of your life.
                Now for the pedophiles.
                Me personally; I can think of a few things that should happen to a pedophile. But this is a unique group. They are so far gone with such a low moral standard, protected from the DOJ on down, given second chances and turned loose on society repetitively. The horrific unspeakable acts they commit, they’ll never self-punish. Our judicial system almost never drops a hammer on them.
                So, if there is such a thing as Karma, they get reincarnated as an abused child and experience first-hand what it is like to suffer what they have done to other children in the past by somebody that at that time has made the choice to become a pedophile.
                As I have said before, if one makes a dark choice he will experience the other side as well before he is complete.
                This is the only closely viable reason I have the capability of thinking of. If there is a God, and I believe there is, why would he allow acts like this to occur? He has every capability of stopping it and yet it goes on.
                That’s the only theory I can come up with that I can see any type of justification, ANY!
                If I walked in on a situation like that and there was no doubt, the child would be sent out of the room. And I would find out what my self-inflicted punishment would be….. I could live with that.

            Warrior Class III has the right answer. It is the only answer. There is no way they could twist a story of the entire neighborhood fighting off these thugs. I still remember Jose Guerena and what happened to him in Tucson. In addition, if more of the people became involved in true justice; for example the families of these SWAT thugs being exiled from the family for their acts then we could have an effect. Too often these SWAT team members are looked at as some kind of heroes for killing people before they can be brought to get a fair trial. I personally would not have anything to do with a SWAT team member in my family and would be highly critical of them. What it really comes down to is that this state of affairs will continue down this path and get worse until people take the same business to these individuals and give them a taste of their own medicine.
            Until people become organize to that end the situation will continue to get worse.

        Honestly, if it came down to this situation, and I awoke to a home invasion, it would be a fight to the death.
        I know I’m not a criminal, and neither is anyone in my family- therefore, any 3 am door crashing must be interpreted as a CRIMINAL home invasion, and treated as such.
        If I ‘surrender’ when or IF I hear ‘police’, only to discover that they weren’t really police but a gang of thugs, now my kids and wife are raped and I’m dead anyways.
        And if they had the wrong house- I’m sure the police will already have a cover-up excuse for their incursion, so we’re all probably dead anyways, because dead people can’t sue, and they sure can’t refute any ‘planted’ evidence.
        No, the most likely reason for a 3 am door-busting is ill-will to my family and I.
        I’ll make sure their blood spills before ours, though.
        Inside my doorway, of course.
        So in summary…
        Note to thugs: pick a different house.
        Note to SWAT/HIT thugs: be DAMN sure you double-check the address first.

          @ Fed Up -

          Our ‘amigos-in-black’ always want to play to their strengths and to use your weaknesses against you. Their night vision capability is one of their strengths.

          The only thing that the majority of us have going for us other than the ability of flip on a bedside light could perhaps be a flashlight somewhere in the nightstand. In order to neutralize even this minimal capability, the ‘amigos-in-black’ will ALWAYS kill the power to ANY building that they intend to enter dynamically.

          There may be a small window of opportunity for you to react between the time that they ‘drop’ the power and when they actually attempt entry ……. if you had any idea that your power had been cut off.

          The answer to this is a very simple, quite small alarm system that will let you know the second that the power goes down. Basically it consists of a wall-bud (plug-in transformer), piezo (sp?) electric alarm, a normally open
          relay and a 9-volt battery. There are excellent, easy to follow instructions posted out there. Most everything can be bought as a local hobby type store.

          When your power is cut, the normally open relay closes and the battery sets off the small alarm. If the alarm goes off and a quick peek out the window tells you that your neighbor across the street has lights on? You may just have unexpected ‘guests’ intent on dropping by.

          God Bless & good luck to all who post here.

              @ Greetings Emily -

              You are 100% correct that a WORKING flashlight can be a lifesaver in any number of situations. Both my wife and daughter carry a flashlight, multipurpose tool and a poncho in their purses at ALL times.

              I wasn’t suggesting that anyone attempt to shine their flashlight into the eyes of a night vision equipped intruder(s) in an attempt to blind them either. This could just get you killed a little quicker than otherwise; your flashlight would be a really excellent target.

              If the ‘amigos-in-black’ do come to your house in the early hours of the morning; there are certain ‘rules’ that they will ALWAYS follow. The building will be under observation. 1) They like to enter while it is still full dark but at least 2 hours after the last light has gone out. 2) They will ALWAYS turn off the electricity going into the building at a nearby substation.

              There can be a period of time between when the power is cut and when entry is attempted while the ‘amigos’ make sure that everyone is in place and that the power is actually off.

              This is when the little < $20 alarm that I described previously could be of use to you by alerting you that your power has been shut off.

              Good luck Emily and please don't ever stop asking questions or adding your input. We all learn from each other.

          Everyone talks a big game about how ” I’ll go out in a blaze of Glory ” – not one stood + fought of the 3000 + people who had guns confiscated after Katrina. People have their most precious children taken away by social services every day – rarely does anyone put up a noteable resistance.

        The next time this happens to some innocent family we as a group need to march, protest, harasses, and bring this to the front. Give the media what they want. A good old fashion protest. This works for every minority out there. It is time to use their tactics and say enough is enough. I am talking about hundreds of thousands of Oath Keepers descending on whatever town does this and hitting them hard using protest, the legal system (law suits), following cops in the town 24/7 with cameras, financial support for the family, whatever it takes to make this so painful and expensive for the said municipality that others will see this and have second thoughts. A shit storm like this got the state of Colorado involved in Ross management’s attack of the second amendment in very short order. It’s time to take back our country using all means necessary. ALL MEANS!!!

      As the anti-gunners continue to gain a foothold in the areas that pacifists are taking over, this type of police Gestapo is becoming more and more common. Why is it that you hear about the worst police abuse in areas that have restricted you protecting yourself the most? It starts with the police becoming thuds where the common citizen is lacking in self defense and the rights to use it.

      Also in free states the police are generally more driven by that freedom attitude to protect and serve. Not always, but far better than any european driven type states where the police get to act like KGB. You hear about these incidents much more so in places like california, new york, and other states that make it extremely hard to defend yourself. Look at states like Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. Those states the police respect gun rights and the 2nd Amendment far more than these other feinsteinless and pro BO states. Just something to think about if you ever decide on moving, choosing a pro 2nd Amendment state is a pretty darn good idea.

        BI you are exactly right, Big Government and Big Law Enforcement are just like a Bully, when they think they have you cowed they will try even harder to intimidate and subdue you. But in states where people are more Conservative and more Independent, Government and Law Enforcement show more respect to the people because they have to view peope more as equals rather than subjects, not because they want to, but because these people will not tolerate being pushed around. Sad thing is that these same States are becoming diluted by an influx of more Liberal or for lack of a better word, Hippie type people, who are drawn to states such as Idaho, Wyoming and Montana due to the fact that these states are scenic or recreation type states. That’s why I see bumper stickers in Wyoming that say’s ( WELCOME TO WYOMING, NOW GIT) My thoughts on this are, if your coming here, don’t try and bring what your trying to flee from. Trekker Out.

        IMO this is all being driven by DHS who seems to have a lot of unlimited funds to throw around as bribe and extortion money. If your department wants a piece of that pie then they have to get with the program. And remember, DHS was created under a GOP leadership in the WH and Congress. Anti-gunners is a red herring. This goes mush deeper and higher than that. It’s about Agenda 21 and a globalist corporate oligarchy that would profit from an unarmed America and one world governing body and financial system. We are being fed upon by parasites.

            We are facing the same situation that occupied Europe faced in the 30s and 40s. A hostile government hell bent on the destruction of basic freedoms so that the wealth of the occupied would be enjoyed by a few.
            The formation of a movement similar to the French, Dutch, Polish and Jewish resistance is necessary for liberty and freedom to survive. If anyone is delusional enough to believe that they are capable of standing alone against the onslaught of multiple armed assailants with unlimited government backing then they are mistaken.
            Survival with be determined by shadow warriors. Seemingly complacent during the day and active in the shadows and night. Sir Charlie did it in Vietnam and was quite successful. The Mujahadeen did it and continue to do it in Afghanastan. There will be those that have to go into hiding eventually. But the vast majority will be in the open waiting for the sun to set.
            OPSEC is your number one priority. Keep your mouth shut and your ears and eyes open. Let others thump their chests and threaten. They will draw fire away from you and your enemy will expose their position. Prepare and Pray !

            A “TEAM” of heavily equipped, half-assed trained guys who have made a plan to engage your home while you are asleep and you think go down in a blaze of glory.
            I think that is stupid.
            If you aren’t a criminal and they have the wrong house they made a mistake. I know noone on this site has ever made a mistake but apparently cops do.
            If your home is being invaded by thugs dressed like cops you are a drug dealer and they are ripping you for product or cash.
            Are SWAT teams overused? Sure.
            Are they needed? Would you do what they have to?
            Fight on your terms.
            In the beginning of TRUE SHTF many patriots will be targetted and the rest can then transition to a shoot first ask questions later mode at that time.

              Ruby Ridge and Waco Texas have already provided the road map as to how to deal with government invasion in a pre SHTF scenario.

              The government has unlimited money and thus they have unlimited resources. If they want to kill you, they will. There is no doubt. And unfortunately, no consequences for them either, even if they made a mistake.

              You won’t be a martyr, the valiant effort you put up won’t be acknowledged, and as usual, documentation of the event will only be hearsay at best.

              I stand by my statement. Keep OPSEC to the very end and possibly live to fight another day. Your true advantage only comes in a post SHTF world.

      Honestly, if it came down this situation, and I awoke to a home invasion, it would be a fight to the death.
      I know I’m not a criminal, and neither is anyone in my family- therefore, any 3 am door crashing must be interpreted as a CRIMINAL home invasion, and treated as such.
      If I ‘surrender’ when or IF I hear ‘police’, only to discover that they weren’t really police but a gang of thugs, now my kids and wife are raped and I’m dead anyways.
      And if they had the wrong house- I’m sure the police will already have a cover-up excuse for their incursion, so we’re all probably dead anyways, because dead people can’t sue, and they sure can’t refute any ‘planted’ evidence.
      No, the most likely reason for a 3 am door-busting is ill-will to my family and I.
      I’ll make sure their blood spills before ours, though.
      Inside my doorway, of course.
      So in summary…
      Note to thugs: pick a different house.
      Note to SWAT/HIT thugs: be DAMN sure you double-check the address first.

        NC Joe, do you actually watch/ look at news websites? This overjacked-adrenaline-and-ego-fueled authoritarian behavior is occurring all over the US. For heaven’s sake, why does a SWAT team need to intervene in raw milk distribution or rescue bambi. It goes to show you the efforts being made at desensitization by this administration, and our government as a whole.

        This kind of insanity scares the crap out of me. I live on the right side of the law. BUT I refuse to be a victim. If someone comes unannounced into my home they will pay for it. Period. Surely I will be listed as a whacko on the news, and the MSM will use it to further propagate the misconception that gun owners are nuts, because no one will be alive to tell the tale.

        On that note, there is an iPhone app that once you activate the camera, it immediately streams live footage to the internet. a site that you choose. That could always be an option to try to get the truth out before they can take the site down.

      I’m not buyin’ the whole, “all LE is working for TPTB” mentality.

      Yea, there are isolated incidences going on out there and mistaken residences whereby law-abiding citizens are being abused and their rights trampled on. But, we are not living in a “police state” yet.

      Most LE are just trying to make a decent living and raise their children without taking on the whole “gestapo” ideology.

      Until SHTF and we are living under martial law, I will be more concerned with the drug addicts and mentally unstable freaks trying to break down the doors to steal anything of value. Very seldom will those elements of society be bashing thru the doors at 3:00 am. loaded for bear.

      Most of the low-lifes/thieves are more likely to attempt to break in when there is some daylight and when they think no one is home.

      Meanwhile, I will count on the “local” LE as still being on the side of the law abiding citizens.

      If foreign forces start showing up disguised as LE, then all bets are off. Pass the buck shot and aim for the heart.

      You will be mandated to show proof of training approved by the state , you will not be able to purchase ammo without the I’d and a PERMIT TO PURCHASE FOR HAND GUNS to obtain handgun ammunition which will be registered with the state police , Quanity and caliber being recorded along with rifle ammo. This means you can not order ammo from the Internet or mail order. This will all be recorded electronically and Transmitted to Trenton.
      The penility for the possession of firearm without the proper ID 25 years with out parole 85 % mandatory sentencing.
      The RHINO governor has already passed 10 new gun bills that will have no effect on crime , he withheld this one and 2 others , if they are not vetoed by August 19 when the state senate is called into a special session who’s only purpose is to pass this draconian law it will by default become law do to the 45 day rule .
      They passed this law in committee by stopping the vote when they did not have enough votes to pass it then sent it to a democrat controlled committe where it passed . Anti gun organizations where allowed no time limit to comment , pro gun where held to a 2 minute rule.
      NJ sucks and it’s not going to get better, my job is here , I have an elderly parent that I care for so leaving is out of the question .

        Good morning SHTF family, I rarely comment but I read the site everyday. Wanted to share my good news with everyone. Sorry its off topic.

        So long story short, I’ve been a prepper for about 4 years. I read “One Second After” and that was it, life changed immediately. Been preparing ever since. But my wife never wanted any part of it. She did see the point of having anything more than a week or so worth of food. Never wanted to go to the range with me, etc. She would make comments about the amount of money spent, and the amount of room my “things” were taking up. All in all she let me have my “hobby”.

        I have tried to get her to see what is happending around us, and after Hurrican Sandy last year she was a little more understanding. But she still wanted no part of it. And I’m not sure why I never thought about it before but I had never asked her to read the book that changed my life. It never occured to me, I guess I thought I could just convince her what needed to be done.

        So last week we were taking the family on a one week vacation. (which is another story in itself considering half our truck was full of survival gear) Anyway, I asked her to read One Second After while we were on vacation. Well…. she did, and her first response was “why didn’t you have me read this years ago”. Then she wanted to know how much food we have, how much cooking and heating equipment. She asked what she could do to help.

        So after years of prepping by myself, I finally have someone to help. The relief I have now is amazing. We’ve been home now a couple of days, and starting to talk about turning closets into a pantry and expanding our garden next year. It’s awesome!!

        So to all the other preppers out there who have significant others who do not support your efforts… be patient, keep trying to educate them, they will see the light. Hey if my wife did, anyone can. :)

        @Night Breaker; This state is getting worse by the day. We are looking at crossing the bridge into PA, but it’s not easy with jobs, kids, family, etc here in NJ. But now that my wife is on board with prepping it may be easier, we will see.

    13. In fact, “law enforcement” DOES work for TPTB. No police are specified by the founders. Police chiefs and commissioners are appointed by the mayor. They are brought under the Federal umbrella by accepting grants and equipment. They receive specialty training, many times through DHS. They are the modern day version of the Gestapo.

      Compare some of the “Cops” teevee shows from the early eighties to now and the pre-emptive violence toward alleged criminals can be seen. You are guilty until you can prove innocence. Ass backwards. Submit or be tased or worse. Is this the way our “employees” should be acting? Most of the code and statute being enforced is not constitutional but a cash cow for the corporate state.

      The only local law enforcement should stem from the sheriff department, who IS an elected official.

      I believe Max had an article about vehicle getaway that I thought was a little over the top and resembled a “Baghdad convoy” story. This article, however, seems spot on.

        I’ve read and seen some of Max’s articles and vids and some of them can be a little off the wall. It’s going to be downright impossible to defend your structure against a police style intrusion. If you don’t get out of the structure/house immediately after initial contact, your chances of you being the victor is slim. At that point it will become a siege and possibly a “Dorner” ending. Any tear gas CN/CS will ignite carpet, furniture or possibly wood, on fire. Try extinguishing four or five of those simultaneously while staying away from windows and carrying your long gun. Your best bet after engaging these invaders is get out of the structure if you can so you can move and fight, possibly withdrawing if necessary. Another thing, unless your house is bricked or of stone, you better sandbag the inside walls, cause .556 is coming through. A few years ago I had a friend who had some teenagers drive by his house and shoot at his mailbox with a .22 rim-fire rifle. One bullet went astray and came through his outside wall and lodged above his TV. His exterior wall is 2×6 stud with vinyl siding.

        @JRS
        Agree with you 100%.. I spent 15 years as a police officer (1990 2005) and watched as the pervasive attitude changed before my eyes… The newer officers began viewing the public as 100% enemy and discussing “loopholes” whereby they coould perform warrantless searches just about anywhere anytime. I tried on numerous occasions to explain the basic flaws in the logic and when I brought up the constitution and it’s limitations they looked at me as if I was retarded or as if i was a “thug-hugger”. The whole attitude and atmosphere has changed and NOT for the betterment of society….

          Tomcat, welcome aboard. I’ve had relatives who left LE for the reasons you just mentioned. They told me, “We joined law enforcement to protect and serve the public, NOT TO TERRORIZE THE PUBLIC.” [emphasis mine] Their fathers and grandfathers before them were cops, “old school” cops I will add. You sound like one yourself. Shortly after the creation of DHS and they starting giving grants to local, county, and state agencies, is when i began noticed a subtle change in their attitude toward the public. Not long afterward, I learned that the curriculum in all local, county, and state academies was being changed to the federal curriculum. That change was mandated as a condition to receive the federal grants from DHS. I’m afraid the day will come when LE will pay a horrific price for allowing themselves to be brainwashed like that. However, there are still some good people left in LE who never accepted that brainwashing as gospel. those are the only kind of people left in LE who the public can trust. LE today has a criminal nature to it, just like the judicial system it represents. There used to be a time when all police work had a legitimate basis to it. Now it appears to have lost that legitimacy, thanks to the federal government. That is who responsible for what has happened to law enforcment in this nation. the feds have ruined it, for everyone in and out of LE. Whenever the balloon finally goes up, I hope for their sakes they have a very good place to hide. the people that all the bad apples have victimized have longer memories than anyone thinks. I don’t want to see any war break out between LE and the public, but if LE totally turns against the public, it won’t end well for them. braveheart

        • When I worked as a jail guard, I witnessed in a hallway, a drunk prisoner. He was telling the trooper that he was going to kill him. When he made his lunge at the trooper, the trooper physically took him to the floor. He could have tasered him. I always hated to hear someone threatening to taser. In my opinion this trooper, 30′ish, is a caring man.

      Devvy Kidd just covered this topic yesterday at newswithviews.. titled:”who will stop rampart police brutality in America?” Direct website: http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd599.htm She tells you of several true stories that tie into what is mentioned in this article. She also discusses the solutions. She refers to what Dr. Vieira has been talking and writing about…and that is the constitutional militia of the states..there is a video you need to listen to, that she references…it is at newswithviews TV..and you just have to hit on it in her article, and there it is. Coach Daubenmire, who also writes at newswithviews interviews Dr. Edwin Vieira on the state militia and the 2nd amendment…he asks Vieira how a militia would have been beneficial when Waco happened…Basically, our government “of the people, by the people, and for the people” (bottom up control) has been lost to “top down” control. Vieira explains how we have to regain what the Constitution outlined for us…Sheriff Richard Mack has been educating the sheriff’s across the nation of their “duty” to the constitution…if you access this video interview with Vieira…at the right side bar are several videos, and one is Sheriff Mack talking on the Bill of Rights before an audience of law enforcement people. You will really like what he says.So there is hope…there are people leading the way….and soon, the movie will be out, Molon Labe, that I have mentioned before…that will be so educational..inspired by Vieira’s book, “Sword and sovereignty”..which will feature Vieira, Ron Paul, Larry Pratt, sheriff Mack, G. Edward Griffin,Chuck Baldwin and many more…due out around labor day..last I saw. Read, get informed, educate others… most people will at least look at a video..Molon Labe should be one that will get many people’s attention. Vieira is so very knowledgeable…I have read all I can of his writings..mentioned his wisdom to many persons..and finally, some of the men, started to pay attention, when they saw the back cover of his book, on the state militias…(mentioned in Devvy’s article:Constitutional Homeland Security I think…has a big red X on the front), and Vieira is pictured with his rifle at a shooting range…I think he is an instructor…

      One way or another, there is no happy ending to this sort of situation. You open fire, you and most likely your family too will die. You submit, you might as well have died. Over here, they like trying the “spaghetti approach” when laying charges: throw a bunch of crap at the wall and see what sticks. So even if it is a wrongful raid and you and your family behave they will find something to charge you with even if it is total BS just to try and save face. Say, in the case described, improper storage of a firearm with my (legally unloaded but rounds in the sidesaddle) trigger-locked 870 in the armoire or even for a non-existent offence like owning body armour.

      And since the raid was illegal and nothing found on it is legally admissible in court (except for the reverse-onus gun charges) nothing will stick so they will likely say “no harm no foul” and it will take years and thousands of dollars in legal fees.

      So yeah, they boot your door down, you lose regardless what happens.

      Here’s the deal, these scenarios have already played out, look back to the beginnings of WWII, the best course of action is intelligence. Stay tuned into ALL forms of news, mainstream and alternative. Once the ball starts rolling determine what it is they’re looking for, then the game of subterfuge begins. Coordinate with other like minded individuals as discreetly as possible, discuss and determine rally points. Set up early detection grids with neighbors. Because if they can come for you, they can come for anyone. Do NOT engage until you have safely secured your family if this is possible. Violence should ALWAYS be the last resort.

      If they want you, they will get you sooner or later.

      It all happens in seconds with coordinated effort. Multi entry points with stun grenades and tear gas. While you wake from your sleep, confused and dazed.

      I had an experience with SWAT early one morning.
      Awakened by a knock at the door with two heavy arm officers. They asked me to vacate my home because the neighbor behind me barricaded himself in his house and was armed. I asked which home and told me. I said, “It’s only Crazy Bob”. The officer was kind of perplexed to my statement. My wife and I decided to go to breakfast.
      The inside story is that Crazy Bob was abusive to a wonderful wife as I had had conversations over the fence many times. One day as Bob was at work, she emptied the home of all belongings and left him a bottle of whiskey and a .38 special. He drank a lot and early that morning shot up the house to which the neighbors called the cops.
      The police taped off the roads and there was about a dozen or so SWAT guys. I figured it would be over by the time I came back from breakfast. OH, No! Bob was still inside and they were using a bullhorn trying to communicate with him. The sucker passed out on the floor and this went on for a few more hours. When I came home I ask one of the officers if his dog was still alive. He said yes and I said Bob will come out. He is just pissed off at the world. I could see all the positions the SWAT had set up to include snipers. One was in my back yard surveying Bob’s back yard. When Bob awoke I heard the SWAT commander ask Bob what he wanted. Bob answered he wanted them to go home. The commander informed him that was not going to happen. He finally came out but was shot with bean bags or rubber bullets as I heard the shots fired. He was unarmed but he wanted his smokes and turned to go back into the house. Yepper, they took Crazy Bob off to Jail.
      A few days later Bob was in his back yard and showed me his black and blue impressions of the projectiles. He did apologize. That was not then end for Bob had another run in with the Law and rather to give up after a car chase, shot himself.
      My neighborhood has had its problems. One lady with 10 dogs and 132 cats in her home. Druggies doing transactions. Racial tensions. Burglaries. Shots fired in the night. Even gun fire right in front of my home.
      Life goes on, I guess.

    25. It’s a shocking crime caught on surveillance video. Looters trash and steal from a Detroit gas station. No one’s been arrested or charged in the case. The owner tells us, he’s thinking of closing up shop.

      Detroit’s east side has the store manager fed up. He asked not to be identified, fearing retaliation for coming forward, and Fox 2 is not revealing the location of the gas station.

      As shocking as it looks the manager claims this is “normal” and he says he says he’s not surprised. He believes there have been worse incidents than the one that was caught on camera, but owners are too afraid to talk about what’s going on.

      Home invasions are not uncommon here in the biggest craphole city in Texas. There is a lot of cartel violence, and the illegals and the gangs, and when they go after one of their targets they occasionally get the wrong address. Most of the population here is not awake to this and it can’t happen to them. My home was burglarized one year ago. That finally motivated me to get the home alarm system from the best company in the US (and pay the city permit so they come to the call), then get a gun and take tactical shooting lessons. There isn’t a lot more a person can do other that to make sure the folks passing your home understand what they are walking in to if they make the choice to have that experience and of course to keep what you have secret, or as secret as possible. Packs of 10 people doing home invasions are fairly regular down here. You have to watch who you associate with because you can become a target from that. I don’t let people into my home, I don’t have guests, I don’t talk about prepping anymore, I hussle my purchases inside in big generic shopping bags I bought at Ikea and I make sure I take my garbage/boxes/wrappers from anything that looks worthy of stealing to dumpsters down the road. Another whacky thing I do is keep solar powered flowers in the windows. The movement freaks people out, they have told me so. Also keeping a radio on AM talk radio at your door on loud is a deterrent. A yappy dog is a good one too but I don’t have time to deal with a dog. As a single female with one small child I think hiring the tactical teacher and then having him come to our home to do run thru’s was the best idea I’ve had because it allowed me to play through the scenario’s with someone the could have an intelligent give and take on the situation. Down here if you feel like you are in danger you can fire on them through the door. Happens daily. Ultimately motion detector camera’s with an alert would be the only way you could have notice. Down here they tend to do these invasions during the day to avoid the human element in the house. Since they watch your home in advance they know your schedule. As a single female I can hope I am not home is we have an invasion or another burglary. The reality of having a squirrely 3 year old in that kind of incident is pretty much a nightmare. This topic is something to always have active in the back of your mind.

              Our Troll is likely the moron Peterson changing his name over and over on here- he got me- I was heated. I just know that as a single parent who does make it on my own I hear a lot of crap from people that assume that means you get all kinds of hand outs. I’ve never gotten a nickel nor wanted one. I got so sick of it at one point I checked into it for fun. Let me tell everyone, if you can qualify for those benefits you need them. The income level you have to have is so low we would be living under a bridge or in the car. I now understand why people who want those benefits have 4+ kids, that’s the only way a person can get them. We do not qualify. So the troll did hit a nerve because there is so much ignorance out there about the poor and I guess people automatically assume that if you are a single parent you are penniless and stupid. I don’t think many welfare recipients are concerned with prepping, tactical shooting, or anything else other thing except maintaining the benefits. Those benefits require the government to be pretty deep up your backside and they actually take over a lot of your private financial stuff, so for anyone to like that is definitely needy.

              Today’s news here is that there are ‘bottle bombs’ all over the Woodlands and that they have found 9 in the last week, so there’s an alert for no one to pick up any bottles there. I guess if people live in smaller populated areas they don’t have this level of non-stop crime. Here it is urban warfare with your neighbors (etc), not the police. Here you are more likely to have a home invasion by a crime group or a cartel issue than the police getting a wrong address. People that don’t live in areas overrun with illegals and gangs don’t understand that the cartels have infiltrated the entire country and that a lot of the drug related crime is through them. If you follow the Narco blogs you can see what is really going on. It’s just a matter of time before non-border states start acknowledging that. Memphis is pretty tough actually too. You have a tough situation there too, same as here with a little lesser population.
              I have found, here, that most people don’t think they should have to spend money to get alarm systems and do things to try to secure their stuff. Personally the alarm money paid per month is worth the ‘no entry delay’ going off and allowing me to grab the 9 and be ready. So all the whacky things that I do, as typed above, do make a huge difference. I only wrote them because some people could use some ideas and maybe take something from it. My whacky ideas also make me less of a target because it’s easier to hit the house next to me instead of dealing with mine. But if we do get hit again, I hope we’re not home.

              This city, whether you live in a regular neighborhood (as I do) or you live in one of the fabulous suburb’s like Sugarland or the Woodlands, the crime is beyond what is reported. The more fabulous areas are the targets since they know that’s where the good stuff is and that these people believe it can’t happen to them. I know when I lived in Phoenix it was the same story as here really. I think it will be fine, but for me and you as well, we cannot let our guard down to those around us. Thank God for PO Boxes.

              Be careful up there! It’s going to get worse with this economy. I’m stuck in the city for now but not forever. We’re in a good spot for being suburban preppers. We will be ok, but if something massive breaks out it will be dicey without question, but it will be for anyone in a city anywhere. So close to the border and such trash roaming the streets on a normal day.

              Going forward I will ignore the troll. Have a great week and be safe!

      For the times we currently live in. You are out numbered, out gunned and stuck in a building. Cooperate then sue the hell out of everyone, make the rest of their life a never ending court case, make them have sleepless nights thinking about the litigation that they are going through. Be relentless and when you run out of major cases then use small claims court on each individual. Make sure they spend more time in court than on the street. Hire a researcher to run back ground checks on all that you can and see if you can dig up anything that can ruin their career or their chance for advancement. Hire someone to befriend one or more of them and record them saying something racist and then destroy their life with it. If you win one case then use that money to pursue other cases or to find dirt on the participants.

      Home invasions and burlaries are going to skyrocket soon. Eric Holder says release early all drug offenders. He says they are non-violent. Not. They may currently be in prison for drug charges, but those of us who have had to arrest these guys know whats going on here. It’s a racially motivated concept. Black people are disproportionally involved in the drug trade. So, lots of them are arrested and go to jail. Holder just wants to free black criminals. Holder is a racist. Obama is a racist.

The people at the top make billions off of the scheme, and why not, they created it specifically for that purpose. The CIA for instance has been running drugs in and out of this country for years. And our esteemed politicians use it to stay in power with their backroom deals and speeches about being tough on crime. It’s one giant scam being played against us just like everything else. Locking up another 10,20,30 million isn’t going to change a thing except get a few old fat white haired rich freaks a few more billion dollars.

It is a very long story, and I will spare you the details except to say thank God it was an isolated seizure, and he was in a post-ictal state (post seizure). He was beligerent and kept interfering with me calling 911. after a couple of attempts, he realized something was wrong and just sat and stared at me, made as hell as I called 911.

      When I told them what was going on, i mentioned I was not sure if he would cooperate with medics, as he was being stubborn about the whole business. they said they had to dispatch police in that scenario.

      I told him to sit his ass in that chair and not move. I checked him for his firearm, did a cursory search of the downstairs, shut and locked the safe, put the dogs out back and ran through the up stairs tucking my gun safe out of sight.

      Our local cops know us, they only stayed in the living room. I assured them he did not have any weapons (except a 2 inch pocket knife I forgot about–we found when he emptied pockets). Medics did want to go upstairs to “search for meds” because they were certain he OD’d. As such, the ED dr. treated him as an OD, even after the drug screen was negative, he said he had to have taken something. would not even call the neurologist. It was 6 hours before he could easily speak solid sentences. I took him home rather than have him admitted and be labeled an addict. The police I’m sure,now assume he was on something because of the medics actions.

      Our Neurologist made the diagnosis based on that days events, and his chronic condition.

      I’ve always wondered if the PD keeps notes on shit like that, in case they are ever called back to a residence.

        Drs/nurse staff called it a stroke–I call it a seizure-stroke.
        Still think it was a stroke, not seizure.

      Also..does the court think that they can tell a parent what to call their kid, when the court is not listening ( so to speak)

      Just because his legal name on paper isn’t what the parents want, don’t think for one second if the parents have any moxie..they will call this kid as I would by their parents given name..screw you Judge, you cant tell me what to do in my own home, so KMA!

      There is a book I would like to introduce you folks to:
      “Savage Continent” by Keith Lowe. It is an historical account of what happens to people in the aftermath of WWII and the complete breakdown of societies/civilization. While it does deal with WWII, it is well worth the read for one important thing, what happens to people and how they react/recover to the enormous shtf event they just lived through. It gives great insight into what one might expect on the other side of a major shtf event. We hopefully will have to live through that too. Civilization is eggshell thin and cracks easily.

        Train for the event, train hard, train often..never let up, continue to train for the event

        so
        When the event happens, you will go into “auto drive”
        and you will preform flawlessly

        this is what the SWAT teams do..and that’s how it works for them

      Plan B for me. 00 buck aimed low for the knees and below. Keep laying rounds through the bottom of the door until the police door knocker falls silent. Call 911 and explain your house has just experienced an attempted home invasion. Scream into the phone that you are in fear for your life and your families lives.

      Since you’ll most likely go to jail, finish off the entry team so there will not be a repeat on anyone else house.

      I think after a few of these incidents of entry teams having their dicks stepped on by law abiding citizens maybe they’ll get the idea that it’s better to come at a decent hour as officer friendly.

        Don’t forget the 1 0z. rifled slugs. Two local police officers (sheriff deputy and town police officer) went to check on the welfare of a known schizophrenic residence. His mother had called the town police dept. because she was concerned for him after unable to reach him for a couple of days by phone. The two officers arrived and knocked on the door and didn’t get an answer. They tried forcing the door and were met with two 12 gauge shotgun blasts through the door with rifled slugs. Both officers died on the porch instantly. The guy was found guilty by reason of insanity and placed in a penal institution for the criminally insane. Two years after that he died of cancer while serving his time.

      So if I’m getting this right, the people on this site believe the police/SWAT are coming for them because they are doing something in their homes to get that visit? If that’s the case are you all drug dealers or cooking meth or something? Are you really delusional enough to believe that you are special enough to be a target for them randomly AND that you can out gun them. I’m hoping I’m reading this wrong because if that’s the situation you’re all out in lala land. Maybe you need to get out and meet non-prepper types and be with more positive people because it’s affecting your cerebral cortex. Maybe that ‘peterson’ guy yesterday was on to something after all yesterday. Basically you would be a dangerous group of murders plotting against law enforcement.

        @ anon and sane: Please google “police raid wrong address” and see how many come up. I am not concerned about a warrant being served, I’m concerned about them raiding the WRONG ADDRESS and rather than double check their info, carry out the raid and then do everything they can to justify unlawful entry (ie: their stupid ass mistake), after the fact through false/manufactured charges or evidence. Basic fact: if they are at the incorrect address, they have NO LEGAL RIGHT to enter your home nor do you have a duty to let them in without a warrant. How each individual handles this situation is their own personal beliefs and acceptance of the consequences of their response. Whether it is an armed defense by the homeowner (PERFECTLY JUSTIFIED-if probably not survivable) or an attempt to reason with officers (only possible if they are not power trippin’ authoritative jerks), the article highlights to me that no matter the response by the homeowner, there are no easy answers or really any good outcome.

Even though I’m only 42, I grew up respecting police officers and believing they would do the right thing. Unfortunately, due to my rude awakening of growing up and observation, I think all those I observed growing up in rural areas and small cities have either retired or quit and the “I’m a cop-aka god- you have to do as I say, right or wrong” have replaced them. The places we lived had 20,000 people or less – we moved about every 4 yrs – dad is retired Navy and he kept us on the outskirts of the bases except in VA., not really any rural areas close there.

      Like 2 Pack mentioned before, IED’s laced around the entrance to the home in question would definately work to the dfenders advantage. All the talk of you will NEVER win when the SWAT Team arrives is rubbish. If you kill enough of them, they will stop or at least back off long enough to re-evaluate plans, giving you time to re-equip, move and/or re-arm. SWAT or police snipers a problem…..who plans on running out in the open anyway, and who says you can’t do a little sniping yourself? They are just damn people. They sweat and bleed just like we do, and can die just the same, thug gear, body armor or not. I think too much hype via image and TV has made law enforcement larger than life and in reality made people too afraid to even lift a finger.

      I just got done reading Radley Balko’s excellent book, “Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces”. I highly recommend this book, as it will really cement the “war against the citizenry” that rages on within police departments across America.

      It was noted that SWAT was to be called “Special Weapons ASSAULT Team”, but the word assault was considered “too harsh”.

      It is duly noted that the original term is more akin to what we now have. That’s a shame. Until the police start seeing themselves as civil servants and not our masters, we are headed on a dangerous course.

      There’s something else you can do to make things a bit more difficult for them. Security system including cameras, silent alarms that are not on the grid. Another is, and this may SOUND stupid, and IS a bit of a pain in the rear, but you can put up a net along your hallway, very unobtrusively, where any flash bangs tossed down the hall will be rebounded right back at the tosser (a real “tosser” in more ways than one. I’ve seen this described elsewhere, but a pairs hooks paced near both sides of the floor, ceiling and maybe waist length at “chair rail level”.

      Another is some obstacle placed to slow a “dynamic entry” team at the door, ie. slide the sofa before bed.

      Yes, these things SEEM a little paranoid and MUST be done daily, but they will stop both real home intruders and misguided HIT teams. May buy enough time, should you choose to fight. May even get them to reconsider the raid before it’s truly underway.

      Never, ever, ever fire on a police SWAT Team if they are coming into your house. That is absolutely a huge mistake.

      Yes, America has gone crazy but you still should not fire a weapon at police when they come to your house.

      They may be wrong and acting on false or misleading information. And they will be rough with you and it will be unpleasant but still do not fire at them.

      To discharge a weapon at a police officer or SWAT Team is to change the dynamic of the situation – for the worse – for you.

      They have the advantage and will, possibly, pull back and go into siege mode. And that will not end well for you.

      It sounds macho and Bruce Willis on an Internet board, but in real life, you are playing a totally different game. The state has the upper hand. You will not win against the state as a lone, Rambo character.

If you otherwise resist you will likely be killed. Fighting back just justifies their thuggery.

      Sooner or later with some luck too much video is going to turn the tide in the direction of the citizens.

      The best you can do is to document what happened to you. Do not violently resist. Violent resistance is a red flag to a bull. Put yourself in the shoes of the police officer: it is 3 am, they are entering a stranger’s home, they have no idea really what awaits behind the door, it is dark, they are pumped with fear, adrenalin, and excitement. They will also be acting on their training, which is basically designed to create automatic responses to situations in order to protect themselves.

      We also have more and more the tactics from Iraq being deployed. And you really do not stand a chance with that. The new technologies give huge advantage to law enforcement officers (ability to see through walls, listen through walls, track electronic devices, map and track all individuals under suspicion in real time). So, while you think you are being covert by hiding in the dark in a closet, they have already used a heat detector to analyze the house and all living creatures inside and see your sad-ass body in crouch mode with a shot gun in your hands. You will have just won the “Dumb-Fuck of the Year” award.

      • Than they should not be doing it

        the reason they are filled with fear is because what they are doing is illegal as hell, and any sane person in their own home should never be woke to this and be in the state of mind to wonder if they should defend themselves or not

        the cops know this is wrong, thats why they come in like gangsters..because they are, and acting just like someone who deserves a lead filled breakfast sandwich

          Beg to differ here. I would bet dollars to donuts that those tac team types are pumped with that same mix of fear, adrenaline and excitement whether it is an unlawful raid or they are knocking down the front door of a confirmed meth lab/crack house/etc.

          Only difference is that law-abiding citizens are less likely to open fire or have booby traps set up.

    67. I just want to say, I think some commenters are neglecting to see that this is about Home Invasion…No matter who’s doing the Invading

      as far as I see it, if you are Invading, that word implies an unlawful entry

      so , with that said..fill em full of lead

      Max V is sooooo right. Depends on situation and circumstances on whether to fight or not. I would definitely carry a 45 with hp and extra clips. When they identify as law enforcement, I comply and drop gun (only because I know my law enforcement). If they didn’t identify or they shoot first, it’s on… A SHTF scenario would definitely be a different matter. They better identify before they knock and better not be breaking anything…

      Now I want to read Patriot Dawn again… Max V should write another PAW fiction book!
