If you want to commemorate the honorable dead this weekend, you might join (in spirit or in fact) the OathKeepers muster for Jose Guerena, the young ex-Marine murdered by cops while trying to protect his family from vicious home invaders. The muster will take place in Tucson on Monday.
When the SWATting of non-violent drug offenders (which Guerna was not) and gun owners (which he was) ceases, OathKeepers (both the members of the organization and those cops who finally recognize the unlawfulness of what they’ve been doing and stand by their oaths) will deserve everyone’s honor — hopefully not only posthumous honor on Memorial Day.
Jose Guerena SWAT Raid Video From Helmet Cam
wow, just saw this video…
Adam Kokesh body slammed, choked, police brutality at Jefferson Memorial
look at the amount of intimidation being presented – for what?
asking people in public if they have a permit to record a public monument etc…
Just watched the vid…damn fine police work, eh?…and for those really care, .308…or better….556 is no good…
It seems the trend among major LEO in AZ is shoot first, never ask questions. Just saw the report on the news of the Oath Keepers march in Tucson. KVOA had a quick quote from the SWAT teams lawyer, it was a very polite, TSTL. Suit is filed to unseal the warrant, unsubstantiated claims, so far, has it was very generic and non-specific. No persons name listed, no specific crime/evidence they SWAT was going after.
Thanks for the update, Matt. Keep ’em coming if you get ’em.
Among all the other lies and ever-changing stories coming out of the sheriff’s office and their attorney, my “favorite” is that the warrant remains sealed to protect lives. Aside from the fact that protecting lives was clearly never the SWAT team’s mission, I’ve heard that the warrant wasn’t sealed until several days after Guerena’s murder, when the news began to get out and the criticism began to come in.
Interesting not many comments on this atrocity…

everybody is too busy enjoying our “freedoms” this holiday weekend i think… (that we unfortunately are rapidly losing)
i wish “the oath” really meant the same thing to everyone in our country.
Thank You Claire.
For your mention of our march to honor Jose Guerena on Memorial Day.
I was honored to attend and assist.
It was a moving tribute to a fallen serviceman.
The wrong headed and greed based policy of using poorly trained, disorganized, testosterone hopped up “cowboys” [watch the helmet cam video above for verification] to serve a simple search warrant is in direct violation of the Castle Doctrine which has been in force since the Magna Carta  not to mention the inherent and unalienable right of all human beings to be safe within their own houses. [Supposedly protected by the Fourth amendment to the US Constitution]
There is a lot more coverage out since the march and one place to find lots of those links to the coverage is the Oath Keepers website.
