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.

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.
