Readers may be aware of the raid about a week ago on the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints near San Angelo, Texas. This story from Fox News does appear to show a disproportionate use of power against a group that apparently had given no threat of armed resistance.
Potentially even more disturbing than the armored personnel carrier and massive militaristic police presence is the allegation that video and photographs taken of the police were seized during the raid. This appears to be a clear violation of the First Amendment, and is a disturbing precedent.
This group may have been involved in illegal and immoral activities: I do not know. Seizure of proof of police activities, regardless of what the holders of that proof have been accused of is extremely alarming, and appears to prime the pump for only the government-mandated officially approved voice to be heard. If this type of thing is allowed to stand, secret police squads cannot be far behind.
And it's only waterboarding. It's not real torture.
