    See that "Your". That means YOU, Alex Libman, the door on YOUR Home. Not "someone elses" door or "Someone you knows door" or "some random guy on wikipedia's door"...but YOURS.
    Methinks you need to read the OP:

    Nothing from what that gentleman posted gave any indication he physically knew the gentleman that he linked the wikipedia page from, but simply that he's part of a similar movement of him.

    If someone asks have you ever had huge amounts of plastic surgery and potentially touched kids, or know someone that has, should I go "Yeah, Michale Jackson" and link to michael jacksons wiki because one time in 1989 I went to a concert and Jackson was there?

    Then the OP is nothing more than a request for irrelevant anecdotes. What's he trying to prove with this? That government agents don't bust people's doors down? I can assure you that they do.

    I love the way someone answers his question - which IS a request for anecdotes - and then chastises them when they cannot corroborate their story, as if corroboration were a necessary element of an anecdote. This is just another bait thread with no point.

    I doubt he's going for anything more than anecdotal I'd imagine.

    I think its probably one of those things that while sure, the media...be it main stream or "niche" forms of information distribution...will hype up and focus on individual cases, giving the impression that there is a much greater danger and likilihood of something happening, in reality a tiny percentage of Americans have had a case where themselves, or someone relatively close to them, have actually had the government (The way I read it it seemed he was implying federal since it seems his use of "agent" is like FBI agent or ATF agent and not "agent, ie someone working on behalf of the government) come busting down their doors.

    That while yes, it happens, its not exactly a wide spread nor prevelant issue for the extreme vast majority of people.

    And to answer Tucker's question, I disagree with Ikari and doubt he meant Cops. He specifically said Goverment agents and went on to describe agents in the way one would think of an FBI or ATF agent, IE specifically a member of some special federal government law enforcement body. So I'd imagine cops don't count in his questioning. Though ultimately Hautey would need to clarify as all Ikari and I are doing is guessing.
