Marshall’s Law Dateline – “Every Third Monday” outline interview for Monday February 18, 2013 ideas for Mr. Dave with KGAB AM 650 Cheyenne, Wyoming; will air on Monday February 18, 2013 at 9 AM Central; Listen at KGAB.com.
Interview Theme: Questions and More Questions.
1) Public Information: The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center says that it trains agents for "over 80 federal agencies." Peter Kraska, in a Cato Institute report, estimates that SWAT teams now make 40,000 raids on citizens each year.
Question: how many of eighty agencies with SWAT teams can listener name?
2) Public information: The Department of Homeland Security’s civil rights watchdog has concluded that travelers with in one hundred miles of nation’s borders may have their electronics seized and the contents of those devices examined for any reason whatsoever — all in the name of national security.
The DHS, which secures the nation’s border, in 2009 announced that it would conduct a “Civil Liberties Impact Assessment” of its suspicion less search-and-seizure policy pertaining to electronic devices “within 120 days.” More than three years later, the DHS office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties published a two-page executive summary of its findings.
Question: Do same "what is Fourth Amendment" policies apply to those within one hundred miles of America’s northern border?
3) Public information: primary issue: private owners using private drones on private property for security surveillance.
Question: Would America’s Founding Fathers have included such technology if it had been available when Bill of Rights were created and added to U.S. Constitution?
4) Public information: some municipal, county, and state law enforcement agencies are having problems acquiring ammunition for training and general operations because feds are seemingly trying to horde by buying all ammunitions to delete supplies for not only from private citizens, but also from all non-federal law enforcement agencies.
Question: Should this concern private citizens and non-federal law enforcement agencies?
5) Public information: South Texas Border communities showed increase in retail sales during both November and December 2012 of estimated eight percent over same months 2011.
Question: Does this suggest Border communities are laundering cartel dollars from retail sales?
6) “Family of US Agent Killed in Mexico Sues Feds”
JAIME ZAPATA'S FAMILY HAS PREVIOUSLY SUGGESTED FAST AND FURIOUS LINK By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff Posted Feb 13, 2013 9:04 AM CST
(NEWSER) – The family of a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who was killed in Mexico and another agent that survived the attack are suing the US government, the agents' supervisors, the company that made their armored SUV, and the gun shops that allegedly sold two of the weapons used, the AP reports. Agent Jaime Zapata was killed and partner Victor Avila seriously wounded in a Feb. 15, 2011, shootout with members of a Mexican drug cartel. The lawsuit is arguing that they never should have been sent on the mission.
The lawsuit also argues that their SUV was flawed—a safety feature caused its door to become unlocked, allowing their attackers to open it—and that the guns were bought in the US; Zapata's family has in the past raised the possibility that they might have been part of the infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Lawyers had been seeking $12.5 million for Avila and $25 million for Zapata's family.
7) Public information: governments’ efforts to expand “background checks” for “private citizen to private citizen gifts or sales” of Second Amendment protected guns.
Question: Despite bold face lies by anti-gun pro-fascists; it is quite possible a grandfather’s estate would have to do background check on grandson to leave gun as inheritance to grandson. A widow would have to do background check on brother-in-law to sell him her deceased husband’s deer rifle. Only really stupid Americans would tolerate private citizen to private citizen back ground checks. TRUE or FALSE
8) Rubio and Rand Paul advocating indirect amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Question: Should conservative position be: Perhaps better deal is no conservative talking to Senator Rubio, Rand Paul or anyone else until Southern Border is secured (word is secured as in past tense). And, no conservative should talk to Senator Rubio, Rand Paul, or anyone else until more accurate number of illegal immigrants on U.S. soil is determined. Facts could prove actual number of illegal immigrants on U.S. soil is closer to mid-thirty million not propagandist claims of eleven million. Reagan thought he was approving amnesty for three to four million not eleven to twelve million or more who actually applied. Difference between eleven to twelve million and thirty million plus will require different national security and domestic tranquility solutions. AGREE or DISAGREE
