It’s the middle of the night…

You’re disrobed and sleeping soundly…

Suddenly you’re startled awake by someone breaking down your door…

It’s this guy and his buddies with guns wearing dark clothing…

What would you do?

. . .

Matthew defended himself.


Below are photos taken the night of the raid… you decide.

    I would have killed all of them, these people are criminals. They were there to rob him, the chief said ‘if we knew he had a firearm we would have approached the situation differently.’ well maybe if they would have done a background check they would have realized he had a registered firearm.

    These people are a joke, underrated thugs that think they are making a difference.

    I’ve tried to be objective and look at both sides of this by studying as much information as I can find as a civilian. I linked to your site from a newspaper article. But this is a little deceptive because these clearly are not the officers who entered the house that night. Those officers were either dead or in surgery at midnight on January 4th. Their clothes were soaked in blood and cut off them in a trauma unit. There was only one agent in the original formation who was not shot. But there were 6-8 other strike force units and at least 40 units from other agencies and divisions who responded in the first 20 minutes if you listen to the radio audio tapes available online. For your attorney to come out publicly and say they look like thugs, so must not be identifiable, is ridiculous. They were undercover narcotics detectives, not SWAT, not uniformed officers. But they could still put on a big jacket or marked vest before going in, and a badge. That’s the law. I’m sure you will pull this comment but at least read it first. This kind of misinformation isn’t helping your cause. To put an identifiable picture of an agent on here is legally shaky and pretty offensive as well. I think at this point your emotional energy would be better focused at helping the core causes of all of this…PTSD, depression and addiction in veterans…instead of getting wrapped up in the anti-government faction. I’m sorry for your loss.

    as long as our community allows this type of corrupt law enforcement these are the results we can expect. knowing of corruption and doing nothing against it makes you just as guilty as the ones committing the corruption. living in fear of retaliation from those who are meant to protect us and uphold the laws doesnt seem to be the right way to go about things. they cant retaliate against us all if we could just get a foothold and stand together against the tainted justice system before us we could make the much needed changes. if you wont stand up for yourself how can you expect someone else to do it for you?! if not for yourself do it for our next generation cause the corruption wont stop here….who knows who will be next to be stripped of all rights and civil liberties in the name of law enforcement.

    I think you should post good pictures of the faces of these scumbags. We need faces, names, and maybe even addresses. You still have your free speech rights and we have the right to know who committed this atrocity.

    The only way to stop this madness is to expose these criminals by shedding light on them and leaving them no place to hide. They are guilty of breaking and entering with the intent to rob, kidnap, and imprison someone. Unless we expose and shame criminals like this they will continue to terrorize, hurt, and kill people using the money and authority we have given them.

    The internet can out these scumbags like never in the past. If they are not terminated for their crimes and incompetence after being publicly exposed then we should start a call in campaign. If 10-100 people per day started calling in to express their feelings about these officers actions then they would quickly be spending all their time on it and would be ineffective. They would have to be terminated at some point, or at the very least wouldn’t have the time to be out breaking people’s doors down. There might be laws to prevent this in your state, but I feel there is very little they could do to people all over the country who want a way to help stop this madness.
