This is an example of overzealous law enforcement that's more likely to generate a violent situation rather than preventing one. The only crimes allegedly committed by this husband/wife team are non violent in nataure---akin to forgery. Certainly not the kind that would warrant an armed contingency of federal, state and local officers.

Of course law enforcement tries to justify their overreaction by saying that had intelligence there would be a confrontation at the house. Kind of like the federal government's intelligence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction to justify an invasion.

In reality this incident in Columbia County reflect's the government's reaction to people who express ideas and beliefs considered outside the norm--especially since the suspects oppose the very institution whom law enforcement represents.

After having retired from the government as a law enforcement administrator, I have formed a belief that government is bloated, inneficient, wasteful and has no concept of customer service. I guess you could say that I am anti-government.

I'll be looking out my window for the posse to come and get me.
