Of Police and Gangsters -- Or Do I Repeat Myself? May 14,2008

Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

A federal court in Brooklyn recently unsealed an indictment against a gang of eight men accused of running an innovative robbery scheme. The criminals mimicked the tactics of police counter-narcotics departments to identify, target, and extort money from drug dealers in several cities along the East Coast.

Once they had kidnapped dealers and their families, the police impersonators would employ some of the same methods approved for official government use in the so-called war on terror.

For instance, some of the victims of this criminal gang were subjected to long periods of controlled drowning ? a procedure commonly called ?waterboarding.? On one occasion, a pair of pliers was applied to the intimate anatomy of a victim, who was threatened with sexual mutilation if he didn?t talk.

When used by government officials, such tactics are called ?enhanced interrogation techniques.? Apparently, it?s only when they?re used without government permission that we?re free to call them torture.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
