Unhappy Federal Law Enforcement in the USA


Portland protesters say federal officers in unmarked vans are detaining them.

This is really scary. Is this prep for when Trump loses the election?

Nope, it's the gestapo tactics of the fascist regime currently running the country. Very scary stuff. Could be if he loses though; who knows what chaos comes out of that office next.

That second article is hilarious — over a dozen police forces in Washington (before they flew in unidentified men from Texas), including the National Gallery of Art police! In London, I can only think of the Metropolitan Police, the City of London Police, the British Transport Police, and MI5.

Kid of like when the Obama administration sicked the IRS on his political opponents, illegally, to do them harm.

Yes it is. Like when unmarked black helicopters were seen flying across the nation, with black dressed (police/commandos/military?) during the Clinton years.

We were called right wing nuts who hated government authority when we complained about that. Are the Portland people government haters, who have a problem with authority? Just curious.

The US Government has been doing operations like that for decades now. Why was it ok when the Dems did it?

Been shouting about this for decades now.
