This iReport is part of an assignment:
Police Raid Occupy Seattle home. Is this deliberate intimidation?
This gets my blood boiling. These kind of tactics have been used for decades and it needs to stop. Intimidation is an often used method with covert government operatives. They often do it overtly to try to break up organizations or get individuals to leave town. It's not a widely known tactic, but I believe it is widely used. At what cost?
SWAT forces with grenades and automatic weapons forced their way into a home of Occupy activists on Tuesday. They showed occupants papers and said they were looking for "anarchist materials."
What? So if I have a copy of "Steal This Book" on my bookshelf, or a cd of "The Anarchist's Cookbook" I can have my privacy invaded?
The cops were also looking for clothing that could be used as evidence in an incident that happened on May 1st. Good luck with that, guys.
No one was arrested in the raid.
