One of my friends in the CO Springs area was there to see this, which is how I found out about what is going on.
This is scary. Really, really scary: not only because it happened, but also because it's so hard to find any coverage it in the national news.
Americans: wake up, and start caring: start paying attention. And read Mr. Bloughs post carefully. And, read the Poss Comitatus Act (And the Patriot Act, at that).
This is not about security. Its not about terrorism. Its about nationalizing our police force, which is not only unconstitutional, but also, morally, wrong.
Spread the word about this, and stand up against it. Get the media involved in any way you can. Contact the Colorado Springs Police Department and express your disgust. Speak against it: exercise one civil liberty that still exists: your right to freedom of speech.
What has happened in Colorado cannot be ignored. E-mail both Obama and McCain about thisonly in NUMBERS can we send a strong message that this wrong, and that we dont accept it.
This is not about liberal versus conservative: it is about our liberty to live our own lives in a republic, not an intimidating police-state. Government should be about representation, not intimidationand when government steps over the line, as they did in Colorado Springs, we need to stand up and strongly reject these intrusions on our individual rights.
