The article goes on to state that they were investigating stolen military equipment. If that in fact is the case, why didn’t the FBI conduct the raid based off the evidence provided by the Air Force. Air Force Special Investigations is not civilian law enforcement, and has no business conducting operations within the civilian populace.
Do they need to recover the military property? Yes! Does that give them the right to deploy military personal and have them lead a raid on a civilian establishment on civilian property? No!
This is just another example of the creep of big brother throughout society. It used to be doing something like that would land you into a world of hurt. Guess the military is now just another branch of the civilian harassment corps.
Civilian Harassment Corps: Any government agency whose role or purpose allows the harassment, intimidation, or destruction of private citizens or their property.
Examples members of the Corps include: DHS, TSA, ATF, and the FBI.
