Getting Wacko In Waco
I guess there was a delay in getting this to the news. Delays are only one of many weird (never good) things that happen when the feral government is involved.
According to a story released by KCEN-TV in Waco, Texas, in the wee hours of July 21, Special Agent John Lewis of the US Secret Service was being rude to other customers at the Crickets Bar. When the bar manager asked him to leave, Lewis became agitated and banged the door open so hard that he cracked it.
Two off-duty Waco police officers attempted to arrest Lewis and he resisted. He was tasered in order to make the arrest. After a medical checkup he was jailed, then released on $1000 bond.
Not mentioned in the story is the fact that often proves to be a factor in clashes between federal police agencies and the local police: Federal police think they are in many ways superior and have more power than do local cops. They often try to run over them and use the federal "big stick" to move local law enforcement officials out of their way.
It reminds me of the scene in the movie "Blade Runner" in which the police chief regards non-police citizens as "little people."
One has to wonder what current or past official of the US lives in Waco, who needs the protection of the Secret Service.
One wag suggests that perhaps they are lagging there to shoot David Koresh again, should he arise from the dead.
They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!
