John W. Whitehead, The Rutherford Institute: VIPR Searches and the American Citizen: ‘Dominate. Intimidate. Control.’ Great article on VIPR by John W. Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute. To quote any one part of it does injustice to the rest, but these last two paragraphs are a good summary: Reprint permission is available. The full article is a bit wordy for casual reprinting, but there is a condensed version that I was able to fit on two pages (use 10 pt. font & adjust the margins): http://www.rutherford.org/commentary/2011/718_EDIT.html The short version would make a nice handout to counter VIPR operations if you can catch one in progress. I would send the long version to local politicians and insist that city & county personnel not be allowed to participate in VIPR sweeps.
