    Syrian defector says government has lost control of 'human monsters'

    Again, Mea Culpa. I got busy. Anyway, I found this chilling. History has born this out more than once. The "security" organization of the Executive Branch starts benign and grows ugly. I don't like it. There's too much potential for the DHS to run wild. They're already showing a penchant for targeting ordinary, harmless political activists.

    A political solution to the DHS must be found. A heavy price will be paid by all Americans if we allow the DHS to continue to exist.

    I agree. We've already seen what happens to normal police departments when they get grants and toys from DHS. We don't need DHS itself getting any more powerful.

    Unfortunately, that horse is long out of the barn.

    Yep. People are being shot, tasered to death and tortured to death, all without any finding of wrongdoing on the part of the perpetrators. Homes are being violently invaded, property is being vandalized, food is being contaminated and possessions are stolen. It's very worrisome.

    It was much the same in Nazi Germany. The SA (brown shirts) evolved to the point that they were pushing their own agenda & wanted to control the military. Unfortunately, the solution to the problem turned out to be the SS.

    Dang them some big boys, I wonder how fast they can run in all that gear. Here piggy need you to coptromiter a scene to see if its safe before we send in the rescue to do the real work. Also its sad if you need a Eotech sight on a MP5 when the iron sights from H&K are dang good, then again his weapons grip leaves a lot to be desired.

    Probably indicates how the cupcakes are disposed.

    After he's bent a couple magazines, he'll figure it out. Must be a sucky shot if he needs a magazine that size -- spray, play & pray you hit something.

    LOL, sounds like you have some experience with a MP5 mike. That is pretty much all a MP5 is good for as in full auto that sucker climbs like no other :D... 500 rounds of 9mm doesnt last long in knob creek.

    Never shot one but I always figured that if you need that large a magazine, you should find something safe to hide behind and let others do the shooting. The guy standing next to him with the semi-auto handgun looks to me to be much more ready for action.

    ...and if you don't use drugs we will still break into your home, shoot your pets and murder your children, rough you up, contaminate your food, vandalize your property, steal what we can and leave you without legal recourse.

    No matter how badly we behave, we'll never be held responsible for our crimes. We can get away with cold-blooded murder.

    My concealed carry weapon is a single stack 45 ACP. I have had people chide me for the lack of rounds it holds. My answer is if you expend 6 rounds and still have a problem you better run because your problem is bigger than than you think.

    Boogie Dog - Colt Defender or Kimber ultra carry? I'm looking at a upgrade from the 9mm I'm carrying now with 10 round double stack mag.
