A Public Service Awareness Announcement; An Open Letter to Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik
In the wake of the recent rash of unfair media, I think it would be a great idea for you to present a Public Service Awareness Announcement to explain the proper way for the public to respond when a SWAT team comes a calling. It could go something like this;

Hello friends, I’m Clarence Dupnik , Sheriff of Pima County
I am here today to help you understand how to prepare for a visit by the SWAT team.
It is really quite easy if you just keep one thing in mind;
‘Do not do anything that can be perceived as a threat’. It’s just that simple.
OK? Got it? Good. Now these are the things you should do;
#1 - Do not have firearms accessible. This is a big no-no. Our SWAT are trained to fire if they see a gun.
You don’t want to end up like that Jose Guerena fellow. [cut to Jose Guerena shooting video]
Do not own anything that even might look like a gun, such as toys or brooms, because they could be perceived as a threat.
Now, it’s OK to own guns of course, just keep them buried away.
Don’t worry, Swat will dig them out latter and use your legal guns as evidence against you.
#2 – Don’t own a dog. Dogs will be perceived as a threat and SWAT will shoot them.
It’s not that SWAT doesn’t like dogs, they just shoot them.
Any other animal deemed a threat will also be shot.
#3 – Don’t answer the door, ever. SWAT could be out there, unannounced.
Going to the door could be perceived as a threat; also the sound of you moving could sound a lot like someone destroying evidence to the SWAT team.
So, just sit back and relax. Swat is going to come in anyway.
#4 – Do not move. This is very important. Movement could be perceived as a threat. Practice not moving at home, that way when the SWAT tosses a flash grenade, shoots your dog, throws your wife to the ground and puts a boot on her head, you will be ready to not move a muscle.
OK now, everybody, lets repeat, just 4 simple things;
[you hold up 4 fingers and tick them off.]
No guns around.
Don’t answer the door
No movement of any kind.
If you just keep these simple rules in mind, I am sure your visit with SWAT will be a most pleasant one.
Oh, by the way, you military people should be especially cautious, because your very existence could be perceived as a threat.
Well that’s it folks, y’all take care now.
Thank you and have a nice day.

What do you think, Sheriff?

I am not a very good moderator. I space out into the ether for long periods. This Hub;
started by my friend Ghost 32, has been following the Guerena atrocity from the beginning and is still an active hub, I highly recommend it.
I am primarily interested in the ways and means in which to change the rules to stop the abuses of the [anti]Patriot Acts. Links to good websites with pertinent information or information about good candidates willing to take a stand, will be greatly appreciated. That all being said, if you care to comment, please write whatever you want.
