Execution by Firing Squad: The Militarized Police State Opens Fire

Legally owning a gun in America could get you killed by a government agent. While it still technically remains legal to own a firearm in America, possessing one can now get you pulled over, searched, arrested, subjected to all sorts of surveillance, treated as a suspect without ever having committed a crime, shot at and killed. This same rule does not apply to government agents, however, who are armed to the hilt and rarely given more than a slap on the wrists for using their weapons to shoot and kill American citizens.

  1. Thanks, John. Another example of twitchy cops – Justine Damond shot dead in Minneapolis. Called 911 to report a possible crime. Now dead.


    What are they teaching the police in the US? Where are they recruiting these people from? Are there any rectruitment standards at all? It would seem the gun culture is finally coming home to roost and we get to see what US force perpetrated on other countries looks like. Except they do it in greater numbers overseas where there is little chance of scrutiny.

    • This incident is not the result of “the gun culture” in the United States. No law-abiding gun owner would commit such a senseless crime, only someone who has been trained to be paranoid, neurotic, unfeeling, and downright cowardly could do such a thing. No one with any respect for human life would have done what the officer did in this shooting. As John points out in his work, it is the militarized police forces in the United States that present the danger to freedom and human rights, it is not the average gun owner.

  2. William Field says:

    Excellent…this is so good and important..please put it free on Utube after a week or two…you must. Thankyou all.

  3. John Phillips says:

    Very good work John! Clearly our government or should I say the fascists have turned “the war” on to the American People. Along the same lines; Sessions just announced he plans to ramp up the police forfeiture of property along with this on-going killing spree by the cops. From every front “We The People” are under attack!

    Solutions anyone…shall we run and hide? Shall we imprison ourselves out of fear of what the police might bring. Change our behavior to avoid this unpleasantness. Should we fight? Scholars scream “non-violence.” But that is their game…it shouldn’t be ours. Remember…The Fascists should fear us, we should not fear them.

    One thing for sure. Don’t rely on the government or police for protection. Protect yourself!

    • David E Burden says:

      Here is the answer to question concerning solutions.:

      Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 15 & 16 of the Constitution for the united States of America.

      It has to start in each state legislature. Many states are already taking the necessary steps. A few are nearly completed. A few are have the paperwork done and awaiting funding from their governors. A few already have theirs back, and in training.

      Every state needs to get on board. Start writing you state representatives now.

  4. Raymond McKee says:

    This is all part of the communist agenda that started in the early 1960s to destroy America. The head of the snake is George Soros. He has destroyed many economies around the world. He goes into a country buys up as many corrupt politicians as he can and then he looks for the troublemakers like the BLM terrorist group or any other low lives to riot and cause trouble. To explain this properly I’d have to write a damn book. I’ll try and make it as short as possible. Anyone George Soros supports is a crooked scumbag and nine times out of 10 has communist background like Obama and Hillary Clinton if you look into it you’ll find they studied it quite thoroughly in university. They both hate America why do you think George Soros supports them. Right now Soros is doing everything in his power to start a civil war in America to totally destroy America. The same thing that George Soros is doing to Europe. He is the one responsible for the mass invasion of Muslims into Europe and America. Do you think he’s doing that out of the goodness of his heart? Not a chance in hell, he wants all the countries to completely fail. So he can bring in the so-called New World Order. The UN is just a stepping stone. To see what they have planned there are some very good books about agenda 21 and agenda 2030, lots of officials have signed off on both of them from around the world. Depopulation of about 95% is one of their priorities. And the people that’s left will likely be the slaves to the small group of dictators at the very top. And with the technology they have today, everybody will be chipped and told where they’re going to live and where they’re going to work and very likely when they’re going to die. All food and water will be rationed. Owning land will not be allowed. Is it starting to sound like a communist utopia yet? If they get away with this Stalin will look like a choir boy. Voting will be a thing of the past. The only way America might survive is if people wake up and start taking politics very serious. Every Democrat in government has to be outed and most of the current Republicans they’ve all got to be replaced by honest people that haven’t been compromised. Start making government officials accountable at all levels. Including all city mayors. Basically America needs a complete reset, the corruption is in every department you can think of. Know your enemy’s and stop being distracted by stupid TV shows, games, movies, the lying Lane stream media. Far too many people have no clue what’s happening right under their nose.

  5. Russell Linz says:

    As a retired “Government Agent” as Mr. Whitehead puts it he fails to mention that Police, Military and assorted agencies are made up of Americans not robots,U.N. soldiers or nefarious agents. The majority of which are probably the most moral, patriotic and trustworthy of our population. The “militarism” of our police forces was mostly the result of our Countries whether advised or not “War on Drugs”. When I was on the street we were armed with a 38 revolver and dealing with thugs with uzis. Whether right or wrong police deal with situations where they have to make decisions in seconds not minutes. I have not researched the examples Mr. Whitehead sites but due to his history of hyperbole I think there might be more to these stories. I’ve personally witnessed the embellishment of facts by the media in my own career.As far as Military weaponry I have no problem with our soldiers having the most advanced weaponry available. Again these “Government Agents” are American kids made up mostly from fly over states that truly want to serve. No sir I have no problem as George Patton once and I am paraphrasing “letting the enemy die for his country” and not our soldiers who don’t start the wars but die for them.

      1) An officer cannot defy the 4th, 5th and 14th amendments and still be patriotic. Furthermore, when an officer uses “civil asset feofeiture” aka felony armed robbery, he not only violate the 4th, 5th, and 14th amendments but, in most cases, also goes on the “take”. These officers rarely prosecute people after they steal from them. Ever wonder why? Because they aren’t trying to stop the crime. They are just taking the toll they are “owed” in return for allowing the criminal to run loose. “Civil asset forfeiture” actually provides an incentive for police to become criminals… full blown criminals. Furthermore they also tend to steal from those who are poor an unable to fight in court for what is theirs. Which is why so few challenge the grand police theft ring.

      2) Police are commonly caught not turning on their cameras, deleting footage an altering footage. The Albuquerque police departments is a perfect example. Why did they shoot the Austrailian woman in her pajamas? Why did they shoot Charles Kinsey even though he was laying on the ground with his hands in the air? Because they are allowed to by a butt licking public that makes excuses for every ridiculous action these animals take. Thanks to this tolerance the good cops have over time been pushed out and what is left is a bunch of butt covering, trigger happy, spazoid, psychopaths who will gladly shoot anyone for no reason at all.

      3) When you support crooked cops, you harm the good ones. So ignoring the problem is not a virtue. I wish people would stop acting like it is.

      4) Yes, our soldiers do start the wars. Although I must say that the problem lies with the parents who do not teach their children the reality behind the corporate wars our country wages. Such parent love to fit in and look good in our wonderous BS society… so much so that they will condition their children to become murderers, torturers and dead meat for manufactured terror and the greed of the psychopaths that produced it.

      5) You will have a problem with that weaponry when they turn it on you because of some convenient excuse they come up with to do so.
