The Price Of Tyranny

Keith Pantaleon sits in jail, the victim of illegal police action. Further details of the case are as follows: the landlord where Keith lived explained that another tenant, one known for making numerous complaints called the police to make the landlord fix the heat in the apartment. The heat was regulated from Keith's apartment. The landlord was forced by the police to enter Keith's apartment without warrant or warning. The landlord explained it as if they gave him no choice, demanding he open the apartment immediately. When Keith heard them enter, he grabbed is pistol in a zipped gun case and headed to the door. Seeing the police, he pitched the case back onto his bed.

Without provocation, the police demanded to know what he had in his hand and was led back into the bedroom, where the police identified the gun case, confiscated it and searched his apartment for other weapons, confiscating them all and charging him with possession of illegal firearms and magazines.

In a Constitutional nation this would not be possible. The entrance of Keith's apartment was through no legal action by the police. If the tenant had an issue there are legal means of working those issues out without contacting the police. Even so, the entrance of the police into Keith's apartment was unassociated with Keith. Their demand to know what Keith had in his hand was an illegal demand since Keith was not a suspect, nor did the police have any reason to believe that Keith had or was about to commit a crime.

The problem with this nation is that violations of rights are not crimes in themselves. Passing an illegal law is not a crime in itself. Violations of oaths are not crimes in themselves. These actions result in the illegal imprisonment of millions of citizens across the nation. Keith Pantaleon is but one.

But, what price tyranny? Who pays for these actions of government officials? The police do not pay a penalty for having violated the rights of citizens. Politicians do not pay for their transgressions against the Constitution. Without penalty, there is no law, there is no rectification. The system ceases to function as intended.

Until there are consequences for these actions there will never be a Restoration.

  1. Shouldn't we just accept a pat on the head and a polite "Don't you worry..." when dealing with the police? Shouldn't we just accept and believe that government agents are all super-dooper good guys who just want to do the right thing? Shouldn't we just lay down and let them have their way because Government/Daddy knows what is best for us? Shouldn't we just trust that government employees would never abuse their authority? Shouldn't we just submit and comply?

    If we perceive we have been treated badly by Government/Daddy's agents can't we just appeal to Government/Daddy to make us feel better?

    I mean, who do we think we are? Free men or something?

    This along with many other important things need to be discussed. This needs to be at the top of the agenda for the meet in April. I have a few other things that come to mind that can be discussed in April.

  3. I only know how civil men--like farmers and businessmen--resolve stuff like this. They meet over breakfast and discuss what they're gonna do.

    Then they live, and do it. Life philosophies build; death philosophies destroy.

  4. There is an excellent piece on the rise to power and transformation of "law enforcement" that I believe is a very well laid out essay of the motivations behind the failure of the honoring oaths. Most insightful.

    1. That was a good read MT. It makes me raise eyebrows at the list of Florida Sheriffs signing on to protect the 2A. While I think that would be a positive note, the past history of their service screams "praetorian"! Just saying, Fl. beware!

AND MANY OF YOU CALLED THEM NAMES AND HELPED THOSE YOU ARE PISSING ABOUT NOW IN THEIR DEMONETIZATION OF THEM. YEAH I WAS ONE OF THOSE MEN AND REMEMBER WELL ALL THE WARNING WE HAD GIVEN. WHEN THEY DID WHAT THEY DID TO THOSE FOLKS AT WACO WHAT WE SAW WAS A RED FLAG,A BETA TEST IF YOU WILL. NOT ONE PERSON STOOD IN DEFENSE OF THOSE FOLKS,NOT ONE PASTOR SAW FIT TO GO DOWN THERE AND STAND AND SAY WE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO MURDER OUR BRETHREN. AS A MATTER OF FACT I WELL REMEMBER MANY CHEERING ON THE MURDERERS. AND NOTHING MUCH HAS CHANGED,IT SEEMS TO ME THE ONLY TIME MOST WILL GET OFF THE ASS IS WHEN IT'S THEM WHO'S OX IS BEING GORED. I LEFT THE COUNTRY THREE YEARS AGO AND WAS WANTING TO COME BACK TO TAKE MY STAND ALONG WITH THOSE WHO SAY THEY WILL,YET I KNOW IN MY HEART I WOULD ONLY IN THE END BE STANDING ALONE. AMERICA I'M SAD TO SAY IS GONE NEVER TO RETURN. GOD HELP YOU ALL.

    1. Through incremental assault on Liberty, one ox gored at a time doesn't raise the hackles of the many. You are right Anon, the people will not stand until they have skin in the game. But remember the Commies will have to bring the people down to a dimension so unacceptable that it will draw their ire. As long as we are armed to the teeth, they will not prevail. Yes, God help us all.

    2. That is why many of us feel it is very important to have Local, local, local meets with patriots in your area. As well as regional and national level. We need to look into each others eyes and shake hands. We need to build unity, like the military and police have. We need to try and find hope in our fellow man and build those much needed alliances now while we still have the opportunity.

      Hopefully the III Congress can help build those bridges or make the ones stronger that are already in place. We must not lose our vision or forget what we all are fighting for. We have to stop letting the little things divide us. We must learn to stand together. I will not compromise with the liberals or communist, but I will set aside minor differences amongst fellow patriots who in the end want the same for America that I do.

      We are all aware of the many obstacles we face. We are all aware of the many problems we have in this country. We can all point to what is wrong with this system or that system. BUT, until we start to define the solutions, we will continue to talk in circles. We know that America is broken, now we just have to get together with one another, come up with solutions and put them to work.

    3. You hit the nail on the head.

      We all know the problems and it's way past time that we pick something and start trying to do whatever is needed to fix it. We can't fix everything at once but it has to begin somewhere with something we can agree on.

      Now, how to get it started is the real question.

      Throughout history it's amazing what small groups of dedicated people have been able to accomplish.

  7. That's nice...on his own recognizance yet. I'm guessin' his lawyer is on that. It looks like an admission of kidnapping or false holding or whatever, let alone that any statutes involved are unlawful in the first place.

  8. Sounds Like an unreasonable search and seizure to me, a violation of his fourth amendment rights. Our rights are eroding rapidly, we need to start electing non professional politicians.

  9. A good lawyer should not only get this wiped away, guns returned, but also a nice bit of money. I would rub their noses in this at every turn. He just can't let up. This is BS. On the surface, you didn't say where this occurred. I'd like to know so that I can stay away from there. I'll look deeper. Thanks for posting this.
