Just another way that government is busting into and trying to take over peoples lives. I feel for the FBI members family, but this is a reality of the job but I can not justify anyone to include law inforcement busting down my doors. If it would have been a drug toting criminal and Christina was Joan Clever then she would certainly be praised.
Lately it does seem as if the government is the criminal, we as citizens are slowly but surely losing our rights, silently, we don't even notice it. As sad as this situation is, you have to tell the government they are wrong, they can't just bust down a citizens door and not expect consequences. Like I said, if it were big bad criminal vs. Joan, many opinions would be different. I respect others opinions, but I best not be on that jury or this lady walks.
I fought for these freedoms and many others are dying in uniform for them now, don't let them slowly fade away.
This is a Great statement too! Thank you!!:)

Those dying in uniform, though as noble as it sounds, are not dying for our country. They are dying for oil companies & special interests.

I do think that what we need to do is learn from this...these type of methods are too dangerous for everyone...surprise breakdowns are not the way to go...a child could if been on the other side of the door in any given situation...an innocent baby or anyone could be standing there and be killed...
I don't know if this woman knew who was at the door but if these methods were to cease we could prevent another life from being taken unnessatily. Too many people who are or were innocent have lost their lives...
We need to stop swat type raids they are to only be used in matters of life and death and then done in a way to protect all life as much as possible.
So lets learn from this and prevent it from happening again.

5 years later and still the 911 tapes are sealed. The neighbor who said theres a fight outside I cant tell who it is.

Or Christina who is terrified for 20 minutes begging for police to come. George Zimmerman has his domestic 911 tapes out while still interviewed

Christina's Lawyer wont file a motion to release the tapes and has done all she can to stop it.

No one that is commenting was in that home that fateful morning, no one knows exactly what happened. I know Christina and as I feel that she was involved in criminal activity and she did commit somewhat of a crime I do not believe that calling her names and degrading her is appropriate. I believe that she was scared and trying to protect her children. What if her husband left her to flush the drugs but she was not aware of where he was when she was awakened and all that went through her head was the safety of her children and herself because maybe she couldn't find her husband. Everyone reacts differentley in scare circumstances and until you are put in that situation you don't know what you would do and NONE of us know what was going through her head and NONE of us know the legistics that were going on in that home that morning. So before people start degrading and name calling take a step back. Christina is a very compassionate person and caring I do feel so horrible for Mr. Hicks family and friends, it is not fair that he lost his life that day.

I guess she acquired some compassion, after contemplating her actions in prison, where she definitely belongs. If she wasn't involved in illegal activity to start with, she wouldn't have been in the position she was, having the Feds at her door at 6am. Not sympathetic for her; am sympathetic for the Hicks family. She put her kids in danger, not the Feds.
