You Have No Right To Invade My Home Or Kill My Beasts

BY Herschel Smith

From Buffalo, New York:

Another raid on the wrong residence; another dead dog. This time, Iraq War veteran Adam Arroyo says he came home on Monday to find his door busted down, and his beloved pup dead from bullet wounds. The Buffalo, NY police did not seem too concerned with cleaning up blood or anything like that, but nonetheless left behind a note of sorts: a search warrant for the apartment next door.

“They busted the door down, with a battering ram or whatever,” he told the Buffalo News. “They came in, and within a few seconds of entering the apartment, they murdered my dog. They shot her multiple times. They had no reason to do that.” Arroyo says his dog, a two-and-a-half-year-old pit bull named Cindy, was killed while chained up in the kitchen, which he discovered ridden with bullet holes.

As WKBW points out, the police made a serious error:

The suspect named in the warrant was described as a black male and was wanted on suspicion of dealing crack.

Arroyo is Hispanic and lives at 304 Breckenridge, upper-rear apartment, which has a completely separate entrance and is clearly marked on his mail box.

Let’s ignore the fact for a minute that this was another wrong address SWAT raid.  There was no point to it.  If the police had any smarts whatsoever, they would have peacefully stopped him on the street, while uniformed officers executed a search warrant on his home after getting a locksmith to open the door, keeping the physical plant and hardware intact.

But that’s not sexy and it isn’t statist and totalitarian.  And it doesn’t allow the police to play soldier boy.  There is moral element to these types of raids.  As I’ve said before:

Law enforcement officers have no moral or legal right to trespass on my property and threaten me, or especially unholster their weapons and point them at me.  And LEOs have no moral or legal right to shoot at me, my family members or my beasts.  I consider every home invader to be a criminal, since impersonating the police is a common tactic among crime gangs now.  Any such invasion of my home or property will be deadly, for the invaders, me, or both.

Soldier boy will stop invading homes and killing beasts and human victims when the price is too high.  Thus far it is still too easy on Soldier boy.

    I have made a vow to myself and before God Almighty, that the Soldier Boys will pay dearly on the day they knock MY door down

    Nothing will change for the better until there are enough dead pig corpses stacked in the streets.

    I agree with the general sentiment.

    “As WKBW points out, the police made a serious error”

    No. It is we who made the serious error, in depending on unionized government pigs for our security. Now we are paying the price for that error, and will continue paying until the revolution starts. At that point uniformed cops will be walking around with a target on their backs and they won’t last long – or at least the worst bullies among them won’t.

    — Such raids are often conducted in the dark of night.
    — The raiders are armored and attack with weapons drawn and ready.
    — You the householder have only seconds to react.
    — If a raider thinks he spots a weapon in your hand, you’ll be killed at once.
    — If you have family, they’ll be treated as hostages for your compliance.
    — As for your animals, they’re priority targets, killed regardless of all else.
    — Perhaps worst, the Supreme Court has ruled that you have no right to resist such a raid, even if it’s wholly unjustified and inaccurate. So if the police kill you, they’re pre-indemnified for it.

    Regardless of your ability, your armament, and your readiness: What are the odds you’d survive such an encounter, should you choose to resist them?

    After you’ve been pulped by hundreds of bullets and your home reduced to flinders, the police department will immediately go on a PR offensive designed to persuade your neighbors that the event was inevitable and that they’re better off for it. Your reputation will be chopped, grated, sliced, diced, and julienned. No one will be permitted to learn the truth about you.

    If there’s a curative for this aspect of contemporary tyranny, it doesn’t lie in on-the-spot resistance, armed or otherwise.

    ^ Spot on Mr. Porretto. Disgusting isn’t it?

  • Curt S

    I think the obvious response is as follows:

    I don’t trust the police…be it county sherrif, city police, FBI…or any other flavor. I for sure don’t trust the government…be it city, county, state, or federal. Sure, there are good people in those departments….but overall….nope…don’t trust them. Let’s face it….from the President on down the whole thing stinks to high heaven.

    Liberty or death still means just that to some few patriots.
    Raise the stakes !


    Why you folks in Buffalo are whining about your cops you seem to forget both your scum legislators and governor, Cuomo. Those scumbags who took away your 2d Amendment rights in the dead of night. Have you forgotten them ? In fact you NY staters have been bending over for the man for….how long ? DECADES !

    I’m glad I got out of the miserable, leftist, progressive state years ago. You folks have no one to blame but yourselves for the tyranny you now enjoy.

    Another win for the po po. When can we invade their homes? It would be immensely satisfying to see them and their badge bunny wives terrorized for a change.
