What Country Are We Living In?

Liberty Minute May 30 2014


In Habersham County, Georgia, a SWAT team kicked in the door of a residence at 3:00 a.m. Without looking, one of the raiders hurled an incendiary grenade called a ?flash-bang? into the living room. The grenade landed in a crib and exploded in the face of a sleeping 19-month-old baby, who suffered severe burns.


The raid was carried out after a confidential informant allegedly bought drugs at the home. The informant ? almost certainly a petty criminal receiving both financial compensation and leniency from the police ? insisted that no children were present at the address. The infant and his mother were visiting at the time of the raid.


Sheriff Joey Terrell declares that he stands behind what his SWAT team did, and that ?There?s nothing to investigate, there?s nothing to look at.? Although his SWAT team was traumatized by the experience, it will continue staging military-style home invasions. According to the sheriff, ?Bad things can happen. That?s just the world we live in.?


If anyone is to blame, Terrell maintains, it was the alleged drug dealers who resided at the home. Terrell characterized them as ?domestic terrorists? ? a term better applied to the kind of people who kick in doors at 3:00 a.m. and burn sleeping infants in their cribs.


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