A dangerous trend of Citizen deaths at the hands of police conducting no knock raids gone wrong has been steadily growing in the last few decades, reaching levels which can only be described as epidemic. This clear and present threat to our core values, and in many cases our lives, is a threat to the Republic itself. The American way of life is under attack from within and the perpetrators have been trained to believe that their acts are legal and justified. This is as much the fault of our lawmakers and city administrations as it is the result of poor hiring practices, poor morals, improper training and a lack of Constitutional education.
I believe that if We the People take a greater interest in learning the full extent of our Rights as American Citizens we will see a Constitutional Revival in this country. The results could be an era of peace, growth and stability such as we have never known, but we must first set right that which is wrong. We must begin by enforcing the laws of the Constitution, which are, without question, the supreme law of the land. All other laws are subject first to the United States Constitution, and further by each State Constitution, the legal means through which each state joined the union. Any laws that are in opposition, in any way, to the laws contained therein, are nullified and of no legal effect.
Let us first then agree, as is outlined in the US Constitution
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures , shall not be violated , and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation , and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws .
Clearly no knock raids are a violation of these core tenants upon which our Republic is founded. If we cannot maintain these Rights in full then we must revert to the introductory sentence contained within our Declaration of Independence
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
With these things in mind I urge you to read about the incident that recently took place wherein officers stormed into the home of a man named Kenneth Walker to conduct a drug raid, yet entered the wrong home. In fact, the attorney for Wallace states that the man in question had already been arrested in a previous raid at another address. The correct address.
Eyewitness testimony states that the officers did not announce their presence, and conveniently, no body cam footage was obtained. Upon encountering the threat Walker fired a single shot striking Sgt. John Mattingly in the leg and discontinued engagement once he realized it was police. The other two officers responded with a blatant disregard for human life by firing 22 rounds into the apartment, killing Walker's girlfriend, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, as she lay in bed. Bullets
ripped through neighboring apartments, breaking glass and putting holes in walls, needlessly risking the lives of dozens of innocent Civilians in neighboring homes.
Walker was promptly arrested for defending his home as any man would when faced with a similar threat. An act of self defense that is not only protected by the US Constitution but by Natural Law itself.
Fortunately Judge Olu Stevens allowed Walker to be released on home incarceration until trial instead of having to post $250,000 bail. An action that was met with an overly aggressive response from Ryan Nichols, President of River City Lodge 614, Fraternal Order of Police, shown in the attached image wherein details of the incident are greatly skewed and Walker is slandered as a “danger to the society they protect”. Never have I seen such blatant disregard for proper conduct on the part of an established organization such as the FOP.
It is truly shameful and everyone involved must be held accountable.
Such attitudes of arrogance and falsification of facts to meet a vindictive narrative with little to no accountability is the core of the problem we face. We have an us vs. them attitude on behalf of many officers in this country and the common belief held by many officers is that police are “at war”. If that is the case it is clear who their enemy is. Such Constitutional Heresy must end immediately or it will surely lead to the destruction of everything this nation was based on.
