Skip to comments.Police State Raids Family’s Home: “The Fight Has Officially Been Brought To My Front Door”
Posted on 03/20/2013 12:01:12 PM PDT by Mozilla
When certified firearms instructor Shawn Moore posted a photo of his 11 year-old son on Facebook the last thing he expected was a SWAT style raid on his home. The picture showed his son, a licensed hunter, holding his new birthday gift, a .22 caliber rifle.
While Moores son proudly displaying his semi-automatic personal defense rifle was completely legal, an anonymous tipster contacted New Jerseys Department of Children and Family Services and declared that the Moore family was neglecting and abusing their child, an unfounded accusation that led to the mobilization of local police who were apparently not at all concerned with the unconstitutionality of their actions which violated numerous protections of the Moore family including their right to bear arms, their right to be secure in their homes, their right to speak freely, and their right to be considered innocent until proven guilty.
Of critical importance is that the police who raided the Moore home never even saw the photo.
It was all hear say. Just a phone call saying someone saw a pic of a child holding a gun, reports Moore.
Shawn Moore recounted the incident at the Delaware Open Carry forums:
The fight has officially been brought to my front door.
Last night I was out with a buddy of mine. I got a text from my wife that the cops and DYFS [Division of Youth and Family Services] are at the house and they wanna check out my guns and needed me to open my safe.
Im instantly on my way. I get in contact with [attorney] Evan Nappen on the way. I explain the situation.
I walk in my house and hand the phone to the first cop I see. Then direct all of them outside. DYFS got a call because of a pic of my son holding a gun.
They wanted to look around and check all my guns out, make sure they were all registered.
Obviously that didnt go well because I refused.
I had Nappen on speaker phone the entire time so they had to deal with both of us. They kept trying to pressure me to open my safe. They had no warrant, no charges, nothing.
I didnt budge.
I was told I was being unreasonable and that I was acting suspicious because I wouldnt open my safe. Told me they were gonna get a search warrant. Told em go ahead.
Nappen (my lawyer) asked me for the DYFS workers name. She wouldnt give it. I asked for credentials and she wouldnt show them. I tried to take a pic of her and she turned around real fast and walked away.
After a while of them threatening to take my kids, get warrants and intimidation they left. Empty handed and seeing nothing.
People it can happen that fast.
Um, hey folks?
So know it’s a “SWAT style raid?” I’m starting to hate bloggers.
Even the “friends”you have on FB cant even be trusted.
Happy Boy! Sorry the goonie birds harrassed ya’ll
I hope everyone has told their families to NOT let police in the house without a warrant.
yeah. IT is Big Brother like 1984.
Now, let’s find out 1) exactly what that report said, 2) if it was a lie in any way, expose the source. (The source should NOT be protected should he/she have obviously exaggerated the situation.)
Then, hound that source.
Hound them relentlessly.
Hound them until they commit Obamacide.
And then hound their graves.
Sooner or later, folks, we’re going to have to stand up to this. Let’s use slimy lib tactics. Make them suffer.
Being nice won’t cut it. These slime are playing for keeps, and we’re doing ourselves an injustice if we do not make sure that there are penalties for violating our constitution.
Ask your attorney about pressing a law suit on the cops, DYFS and who ever else. Don’t let them get away with this.
With a lawless president in the White House, word is out that the rule of law in the United States is finished, and all federal employees feel free to do whatever the h*ll they choose.
The New Marxist State is on the way and the only guiding principles are those laid out by Vladimir Lenin a hundred years ago.
Some bed-wetting liberal nanny-stater yenta saw it and had a case of the vapors......
The fight has been brought to every America’s front door.
Choose this day how you will serve; Will you serve unwillingly and at the bidding of others wearing the yoke of socialism or will you hold true to the course of our forefathers standing tall and serving freely? As for me I choose to SERVE THE REPUBLIC!
Likely you can’t find out who submitted the report,
but you CAN find out who ordered the raid,
and who made the decision that they had to enter the home and look in the gun safe.
Those people need to be sued for violation of civil rights under color of law.
That’s a cute pic. Cops should be happy he’s holding it properly.
As for the anonymous tipster: Hope you’re happy, Miss. (I’m assuming you’re a liberal woman, although you might also be a liberal girly man, in which case, Miss could still apply.) You know, someday, people will wise up, find out who you are by your I.P. address, and take you outside for a sound talking to (and a beating, if you’re a man), you miserable informant.
Sounds like a law suit is in order against the Dept . of Family Sevices, that will allow discovery of the anonymous tipster, who deserves to be joined as a defendant for giving false information to the dept.
Not what Officer Friendly wore when I was growing up.
Liberal informant was probably worried that the kid would learn how to resist his evil, liberal plans.
