Now it appears to be happening in our lifetime, up in Portland. People arrested for crimes they have yet to commit.
Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf spun his unidentified federal agents’ random detainment of nonviolent anti-police brutality protesters in Portland, Oregon as some kind of pre-crime measure on Tuesday night.“Because we don’t have that local support, that local law enforcement support, we are having to go out and proactively arrest individuals,” Wolf said during an interview on Fox News. “And we need to do that because we need to hold them accountable.”Holding people accountable for actions that have yet to occur? Really? Arresting people randomly and proactively because you think they will commit crimes in the future is one of the scariest and most un-american things I have ever heard of. Think about our civil rights and what it means when they are so casually suspended by the authorities? These protesters must look like criminals. Now illegal to wear black too, I suppose. Walks like a duck... This is the stuff of scary science fiction. Like tear gassing and beating certain people at a church in Washington D.C. because they were in the same location as people who broke the law there on a previous day. It doesn't make any sense.
