Nomination For a Hero Badge

The FBI shot and killed a bullshit artist in Utah. They were attempting to serve an arrest and search warrant. It’s the old use it or lose it thing. Armored vehicle, SWAT team, all that neat SWAT gear, here was an opportunity to run fast and jump high. Sigh, when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Could have waited until he came out to get the mail. No, wait that wouldn’t work. The FBI is partial to dawn raids and the mailman doesn’t arrive until early in the afternoon.

Craig Robertson, was a 74-year-old blow hard who had guns. His downfall is that he also had access to Facebook. An old fat guy up against an FBI SWAT team, at least they were evenly matched. I’m not saying that he should get a bye. A full-blown tactical operation borders on the ridiculous. We have a saying in Texas: “First liar hasn’t got a chance!”

He said Robertson was about 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighed 300 pounds. He “could barely get around with a cane” and had difficulty standing up on his own.

This case ought to be right up there with another FBI investigation I wrote about. Here it is an oldie but goody.

One’s worth, as a warrior, is measured by the opponents faced.

I guess I can understand. The FBI is still trying to live down all the fuckups they made that allowed Lee Harvey Oswald to attend a parade in Dallas, back on November 22, 1963.
