Is This Country Worth Saving?

I have my doubts.  For those who are still disgusted by the perpetually going-off-half-cocked behavior of Arizona Sheriff Clarence Dupenik, who blamed right-wing radio for a paranoid schizophrenic Democrat shooting Gabby Giffords, it’s of no comfort that his pre-meditated murder (and subsequent cover-up) of a two tour Iraqi War veteran in his own home will be applauded by the allegedly conservative Justices Roberts, Alito, Scalia &  Thomas:

A Tucson, Ariz., SWAT team defends shooting an Iraq War veteran 60 times during a drug raid, although it declines to say whether it found any drugs in the house and has had to retract its claim that the veteran shot first.

And the Pima County sheriff scolded the media for “questioning the legality” of the shooting.

Jose Guerena, 26, died the morning of May 5. He was asleep in his Tucson home after working a night shift at the Asarco copper mine when his wife, Vanessa, saw the armed SWAT team outside her youngest son’s bedroom window.

“She saw a man pointing at her with a gun,” said Reyna Ortiz, 29, a relative who is caring for Vanessa and her children. Ortiz said Vanessa Guerena yelled, “Don’t shoot! I have a baby!”

Yes, it’s an isolated incident.  Not nearly as isolated as we would like to believe. But the revolutionary disrespect for the Fourth Amendment from Rookie SWAT/Hired Murderer #1 all the way to Supreme Court Chief Justice makes me question my continued citizenship.  We’ve got to expect the murder of a few innocent eggs to make our Drug War omelet and if they were innocent after all – well, fuck it.  Don’t you dare have the temerity to question the policy.  After all, who do you think you are?  A free person in a country that respects your right to life, secure in your personal property or to pursue your individual happiness?

Grow up.

When you no longer have a right to defend yourself from someone anonymously and violently breaking into your home, you’re no longer in America anyway.


  1. The Indiana Supremes just ruled that we have NO right to refuse warrentless police searches in my home state. Me and my 38 disagree!!!

  2. The only problem with that is if you’re ever in a position where they are kicking in your door that you only get to disagree once. There’s nowhere left to appeal when the Supreme Court rules that warrantless raids are permitted.

    As the case above reads, the ambulance arrived on the scene and the police kept them from entering the home. Not that they are going to be able to help much when the homeowner is shot 60 times.

  3. Civil War 2 is coming. And, it won’t be divided along the Mason-Dixon line. You won’t need to produce your saved Confederate money. It’s going to be between the liberal/leftists and the rest of us.

    There is more to a society than its legal system. For some reason, law professors and judges/justices, no matter how “brilliant” they are considered or awarded, just don’t seem to understand that.
