Outrageous Video: DHS Trashes Couple’s Home, Strips Woman Naked at Gunpoint - 06-24-2014, 08:07 AM

We're the government and we're here to help you...

Outrageous Video: DHS Trashes Couple’s Home, Strips Woman Naked at Gunpoint, Offers No Explanation


In America, we have certain rights. Central to our civil liberties is a presumption of innocence until having been found guilty in a court of law and the right of citizens to be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures.

One Florida couple found out the hard way that though these rights exist in theory, the modern federal government feels free to play fast-and-loose with these concepts.

At approximately 6:16 am on June 10th, 2014, Kari Edwards and her live-in boyfriend were seized upon by a SWAT team who smashed in the door and using flashbangs and armed to the teeth, swarmed upon the couple and even stripped Ms. Edwards naked in the process.

The couple says that the group entailed personnel from DHS, for whom Edwards once worked. After smashing in the door, the tactical team threw in flashbang grenades, traumatizing their cat and swarmed upon Edwards’s boyfriend and Edwards who had just gotten out of the shower.

“They busted in like I was a terrorist or something,” Edwards said.

“[An officer] demanded that I drop the towel I was covering my naked body with before snatching it off me physically and throwing me to the ground.”

“While I lay naked, I was cuffed so tightly I could not feel my hands. For no reason, at gunpoint,” Edwards said. “[Agents] refused to cover me, no matter how many times I asked.”

“I have never been in any trouble before,” Edwards later stated. “Haven’t even had a traffic ticket in over ten years.”

The couple claim to have seen several different agency uniforms and Edwards repeatedly asked who they were and why they were there. Edwards claimed that they would only identify as “police” and refused to identify why they were there.

The couple has surveillance cameras which caught much of the action. When they were discovered, agents turned the cameras toward the wall.

After two hours and after the agents had thoroughly trashed the house, Edwards was given a warrant signed by Jonathan Goodman, a federal magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida that authorized the agents to search for computers and electronics.

Edwards’ boyfriend fixes up old computers but she claimed that the police barely looked at any electronics and did not seize any of the electronics in the house.

Like so many recent instances regarding federal militancy, the root cause of the police action can be justifiable while the manner in which police are investigating alleged illegalities is wholly inappropriate. If the police had a warrant to search for electronics, it’s possible to have executed that warrant without the firepower once reserved for Army Rangers going door-to-door in Fallujah.



Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

Could you imagine if this shit happened on GWB watch ?? I mean, then we would get the outrage that something like this deserves... but rather than be upset, they need to protect the regime at all costs, and if one of their own has to take one for the team, so be it !!

Oh, we already hold someone responsible a long time ago for coming up with that brilliant idea. It's just insanity to keep repeating our disdain for it like a broken record.

And it's even worse that some people are suffering from dementia on which president that made the law that applies to this particular case permanent (under the assumption that this is truly a DHS operation).

Clad to see someone else sees it as a bit of an interesting puzzle rather than an opportunity to start yet another left v right shouting match.

The above is only one good example of a number of unknowns that anyone objective would be awaiting further info on before diving too far in any direction on this.

Outrageous Video: DHS Trashes Couple’s Home, Strips Woman Naked at Gunpoint
Did anyone see either of those particular outrageous things on the only video which was embedded in the article? It seemed to just be a video of the outside of the home, evidencing the operatives arriving mob handed, forcing entry and leaving a short while later.

Is that video from the security camera that the couple say recorded some of the action before the operatives turned it towards the wall? Or is there another video from a different security camera actually inside the home showing part of the claimed trashing of the home and stripping naked of the woman, before it was turned against the wall?

How does anyone know it is true that the couple were offered no explanation or not even shown a warrant (until the operatives were finished their search)?

The woman claims that despite what it says on the warrant they didn't actually look for anything electrical/computer in nature. If someone is in tight handcuffs and presumably under restraint in one room, how do they even know what kind of search the operatives carried out in other rooms or what they were looking for in those rooms? I notice she pointedly doesn't say what she thinks they WERE actually looking for.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending these thugs.....but the cynic in me tells me there's something not quite complete about this story.....and I'm not just talking about the obvious ie that so far we've only got part of one side of it and a video of the outside of the house

Much of the main provisions of the act were made permanent, so warrantless searches will be part of our lives permanently. Only the peeping-tom and lone-wolf provisions were the only ones that the Congress can re-authorize which Bumble can sign into law. Even if Bumble vetoes the re-authorization of those provisions, the home invasion will continue on because of the other permanent provisions.
