    Wednesday, April 24th this went on in Oakland, CA... Do you see it as a kind of police state action?

    What is their reasoning behind doing that?

    Police always do sweeps. It's not that uncommon

    They were doing their job. Weren't as successfull as they had hoped, but you can't expect them to send in only a handful of cops against a violent gang. When there is a possibility of a shoot out precautions must be made.

    Nope, I don't. Looks as though known criminals were targeted and warrants obtained. Everything by the book.

    Now, if they were conducting random searches, without warrants, and stuff like that then yes. However, here we have police officers doing their job.

    'Ha Ha Ha, it's fucking Oakland Ca., where you can get killed if you say anything bad about the Raiders or not wearing something related to the Raiders. LOL
    I'm surprised sweeps like that don't happen every day, all day there.
    Oakland has two claims to fame; the Raiders and the gangster thugs who follow them.
    Fucking police state LOL... more like a gangsta city.

    For the record....fuck the raiders.
  11. I don't think this was a police state action, although I do consider california a police/nanny state

    Hows did this make it a police state. Like the article said the FBI and the police had been watching this area for quite some time. Why would you not want them to get some of these guys off the street. Oakland is pretty close to me too, so I'm perfectly happy to see less grime on the streets.

    No I think the police were warranted to take action in this instance, and it looks like they followed the law by obtaining warrants and all.

    I do wonder if this is is a related or the same raid, that was not only cracking down on gang members but was also investigating pervasive human trafficking cases (including child sex trafficking) cases all across California.


    I should probably read the links provided in this forum, I haven't yet.
  14. I will give that link a read monkjr

    I didn't know that in a police/nanny state I could get busted with up to an ounce of weed and MAYBE receive a ticket not too exceed $100 fine.
    But then again I'm a MMJ patient so I just call and have my bud delivered.

    California government has also been one of the more vocal and adamant about the federal gov NOT interfering with Ca. laws, too bad city/county officials still have their heads inserted into their rectums, but it is a "police state" after all, what do I expect.

    So hillbilly, how long have you lived in Ca.?

    and like I said in my previous post,
    So no big surprise.
    Most California residents will acknowledge this.
  17. If I had half the guns I wanted to own in california, that I can own here, I would be in prison on state weapons charges. Also cost of living is through the roof. They try to control the people too much, although their marijuana laws are good, they need to work on being less controlling of their people and their gun rights.

    and what guns would those be?

    How do they try to control the people too much?
    and what great bastion of freedom are you hailing from?

    Oh, someplace like Ohio.
  20. Ar-15, no full autos, just take a look at gun sites that can't sell to california, can't even own a gravity knife. The magazines have to be fixed on some of them, and lets not forget your governor is wanting to ban all these weapons in the first place.
