(Carlos Miller) – In what should send a frightening chill down the spine of every blogger, writer, journalist and First Amendment advocate in the United States, Phoenix police raided the home of a blogger who has been highly critical of the department.

Jeff Pataky, who runs Bad Phoenix Cops, said the officers confiscated three computers, routers, modems, hard drives, memory cards and everything necessary to continue blogging.

The 41-year-old software engineer said they also confiscated numerous personal files and documents relating to a pending lawsuit he has against the department alleging harassment – which he says makes it obvious the raid was an act of retaliation.

My Commentary: Would it surprise you to know that, apparently, the First Amendment is reserved ONLY for those citizens that choose NOT to criticize the American Police State? If your answer is “yes,” then you obviously haven’t been paying attention!

Rayn: I am sickened by the AMERICAN POLICE STATE. When will we RISE AGAINST the TYRANNY of EVIL, LYING, ABUSIVE, POWER-HUNGRY, JUSTICE-PERVERTING COPS? These COWARDLY, MURDEROUS, HIRED THUGS bring SHAME to what should be an HONORABLE PROFESSION! They are TOO WEAK-WILLED and MORALLY-COMPROMISED to “SERVE & PROTECT” the PEOPLE. The “PEACE OFFICER” has morphed into the “LAW ENFORCEMENT” CHARLATAN, who believes he is a JUDGE!

We must expose these cowardly frauds to full public scrutiny, or they will continue to commit human rights violations under the guise of “fighting crime.”

Keith: Make a Website about them! And give all the pig’s Rabies!!!!

Rayn: Euthanization would be much more effective long term solution, but I digress. I’m way ahead of you on the website concept. I’m already in the process of compiling data and evidence. There is NO VALOR or HONOR in these COWARDS, THIEVES and FREEDOM-HATERS. Their MAN-MADE RULES and REGULATIONS have BETRAYED us!

Sara: Welcome back to Essex County, where a PIG can be a PIG.

Rayn: Yes. These filthy swine pollute the streets of America with the corruption of their lies, prejudice, brutality, and injustice.

Keith M.: Still Sickened By This!
