Welcome to Obama’s America ladies and gentlemen where rules apply to everyone besides the government. A Florida couple was recently left traumatized by government agents after they came crashing through their door during a no knock raid.
No knock raids are usually designated for violent, or potentially violent offenders – those in which the element of surprise comes at a great advantage for officers in terms of their safety. Despite this being the case, agents did not offer any explanation as to why they decided to go about enforcing their warrant in such a way, but they ended up flashbanging the couples cat and pointing guns at the frightened residents.
On June 10th, 2014, at about 6:16 am, an armed to the teeth SWAT unit broke down the door of Kari Edwards, threw in a concussion grenade and then stormed in with weapons aiming at center mass. “They busted in like I was a terrorist or something,” Ms. Edwards explained.
“[An officer] demanded that I drop the towel I was covering my naked body with,” the frightened homeowner added, “before snatching it off me physically and throwing me to the ground.” Describing yet another atrocity committed by authorities, Edwards stated, “While I lay naked, I was cuffed so tightly I could not feel my hands. For no reason, at gunpoint. [Agents] refused to cover me, no matter how many times I asked.”
Furthermore, Edwards’ boyfriend explained that as she laid there bare, one officer kept, “Eying me up and down like I was eye candy.”
In her house she described a slew of agencies ranging from police, to ICE and gang task force, but Edwards states that she was able to determine that it was a DHS operation over time. As officers marched through the house, they soon noticed surveillance cameras and forcibly repositioned them to the wall saying they couldn’t be recorded.
See the video below:
After two hours of what seems to be wrongful detainment, Edwards and her boyfriend were finally presented with the warrant that listed their sole purpose was to inspect and seize computers in the residence. Even more shockingly, Edwards notes that they hardly even touched any computers, which there were apparently quite a bit of as her boyfriend works on them for a living.
To this day, Edwards still does not know why DHS kicked in her door and searched her place mentioning that she’s never been in trouble with the law and had even her last traffic violation about 10 years ago. The judge who signed the warrant reportedly will not return her calls.
