Wisconsin's Shame: 'I Thought It Was a Home Invasion'
Ace already covered this but read the whole thing if you haven't. This is what fascism landed in America looks like.
For the family of "Rachel" (not her real name), the ordeal began before dawn - with the same loud, insistent knocking. Still in her pajamas, Rachel answered the door and saw uniformed police, poised to enter her home. When Rachel asked to wake her children herself, the officer insisted on walking into their rooms. The kids woke to an armed officer, standing near their beds.
The entire family was herded into one room, and there they watched as the police carried off their personal possessions, including items that had nothing to do with the subject of the search warrant - even her daughter's computer.
And, yes, there were the warnings. Don't call your lawyer. Don't talk to anyone about this. Don't tell your friends. The kids watched - alarmed - as the school bus drove by, with the students inside watching the spectacle of uniformed police surrounding the house, carrying out the family's belongings. Yet they were told they couldn't tell anyone at school.
They, too, had to remain silent. The mom watched as her entire life was laid open before the police. Her professional files, her personal files, everything. She knew this was all politics. She knew a rogue prosecutor was targeting her for her political beliefs.
And she realized, "Every aspect of my life is in their hands. And they hate me."Note that the only reason we know about the 'John Doe' raids in the first place is because one of the victims eventually violated the gag order.
