"Why does the EPA have a SWAT team?" Same reason the Dept. of Education does: because they can get away with it, it gives them more power, and because if you don't have one you're not one of the cool kids' groups.
There was a similar incident in California where a SWAT team burst into a
man’s house and dragged him handcuffed to the front lawn on orders from
the Department of Education to look for evidence his ex-wife had
committed financial aid fraud.
A: IF these clowns were actual LE professionals, they'd have said "Hell no!" when told to raid for such a reason. Bet the clowns refer to themselves as 'operators', too.
B: Every one of them, from the idiot who gave the order to the clowns who carried it out, should have been fired. But not crap will happen to them. Same goes for the EPA SWAT team in Alaska.
Speaking of people who should be fired and prosecuted, I present to you the SEC:
Two stories popped up last week that raise serious concerns about the
way that the SEC tramples on the Constitution. The first is that in a
hearing, SEC boss Mary Jo White was asked why the SEC is so resistant to
ECPA reform and what's wrong with getting a warrant, and more or less
admitted that it's standard practice for the SEC to not get a warrant, but to rely on loopholes in ECPA to get access to emails. Prior to this, many had assumed that this was just a desire
of the SEC, not that they were regularly doing it. But White's answer
makes it clear that the SEC views this practice -- which seems like it
should be a clear 4th Amendment violations -- as standard operating procedure.
Meanwhile, concerning a separate issue, Mark Cuban and his lawyer published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week, discussing the SEC's totally bogus case against him for insider trading, which got tossed out by a lawyer. The key issue they discussed is how the SEC had exculpatory evidence that proved Cuban had done no wrong from back in 2004 -- and then did everything possible to avoid turning over that evidence, as is normally required in legal proceedings.
More 'liberal' attacks on unapproved speech:
Another incident of muzzling those without the proper worldview received less attention. Kickstarter, the nation's biggest crowd-funding site,refused to accept a film about convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell unless descriptions of his crimes were removed.
After producers Phelim McAleer and his wife, Ann McElhinney, complained publicly, embarrassed Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler claimed on Twitter that the allegation was false. Strickler released an e-mail accepting the Gosnell film, but failed to mention that it was accepted only after the filmmakers withdrew in frustration. The producers released e-mails from Kickstarter demanding that references to stabbing babies and "similar language" be removed. The "acceptance letter" came March 28, the day after the producers withdrew their proposal.
Superintendent Charles Maranzano of Vernon
Schools in New Jersey: I hope the family sues you for everything you
have and ever will have.
“We never know what’s percolating in the
minds of children,” he told the news station. “And when they demonstrate
behaviors that raise red flags, we must do our duty.”

Judge, I'll believe you REALLY mean it when you act to have Teesdale disbarred and fired. Until then, you're just throwing some words at another lawyer.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I shall try to do something about the mess around here. And then take those pictures I promised.
