    ‘Red Scare History Burst Through My Door’

    In the early hours of July 10, armed SWAT officers burst through the doors of an apartment belonging to organizers of Occupy Seattle as part of an ongoing investigation into the May Day riots. Phillip Neel, one of the residents of that apartment, talks about the ordeal.On the morning of July 10th, a SWAT team raided an apartment where organizers from Occupy Seattle live. According to the warrant, the police said they were looking for "anarchist material" and were continuing an ongoing investigation into finding those responsible for the May Day riot. During the mostly peaceful actions in Seattle on May Day, there were also businesses that were disturbed, smashed windows, and tires that were slashed. But the police left the apartment in Seattle yesterday without arresting anyone, and just a few pieces of seized property. That's after they busted down the door, used a flash bang grenade, and tore through the entire apartment. Alyona discusses the raid with one of the people that was in the apartment when the raid happened, Phillip Neel, he's an Occupy Seattle Organizer and member of the Red Spark Collective.

    Free speech? Democracy? I think not. This cannot be possibly ok. Are we turning into more and more of a police state?

    We ARE a police state. We have been one for a long time now. I'm surprised you're surprised.

    well this is why people who dont like either candidate should vote third party and not the lesser of two evils.

    as we can see,both bush and obama have pushed a police state,bush attacked mostly privacy,and obama a mix between free speech and expanding bushs anti privacy measures.most of the people who complain about a police state voted for the candidates that pushed it,and alot of them plan to re-elect one of them,despite the fact he has pushed everything they hate.


    third party may not win,but as long as the lesser of two evils exists,there will still be evil,but with third party,you send a message.so far the libertarian party has grown large support in the last decade,as their popularity grows other parties will try to move in.all this competition wont be enough to win an election,but it would be enough to cause politicians to realize they dont have a pure hold on power.

    The best way to be invisible in the USA is to not have your name in the system. Aliases that you don't register are simply that; aliases.

    I don't know. Maybe warrantless wiretapping, siezure of assets without due process, indefinite detention without a trial, even killing people who are suspected of certain crimes.

    Oh wait. You said next. All that has already happened.
