Ever notice that the surveillance society, fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc. seems to fail at stopping hardcore bad guys?

 

Here’s a few bad guys that made it past the screeners:

Ex-con sets house ablaze then shoots at firefighters

Man who pleaded guilty in 2009 fatal beating is suspect in recent fatal bar shooting

FBI says Alaska man killed for fun

Man suspected of killing Spokane woman remains at large

Boston bombing

Several Vancouver schools in lockdown after rifle found at HS

Connecticut school shooter

 

Bellingham assault suspect eludes police, remains on the loose-

“…has a history of domestic violence. His court record in Washington stretches more than 60 cases long, with six felony convictions.”

 

Shots fired at Portland-area mall

Oregon mall shooter “neutralized”

Neutralized?

He killed himself:

A masked gunman opened fire today at Clackamas Town Center, a mall in suburban Portland, Ore., killing two people, injuring one, and then killing himself.

 

Lone madman shuts down Mount Rainier National Park- “About 150 officers” respond.

Park remains closed for almost a week- madman not found until after he succumbed to the forces of nature- not a shootout with the good guys.

Madman shuts down third-busiest port of entry on the northern border.

This guy also neutralized himself.

 

Sentries & watchstanders unable to prevent lone bumbler from penetrating US Coast Guard base- then smoking marijuana in the CO’s quarters aboard 210-foot cutter Active- not to be discovered until hours later at morning colors.

Don’t worry-

The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe-

 

41-year-old Peter Keller-

Victims shot to death prior to North Bend house fire

“After working for hours in the rugged terrain, West said some crew members needed IV infusions for exhaustion.”

“Four officers were taken to the hospital for exhaustion and dehydration overnight after navigating the rugged terrain around the bunker.”

 

60+ rounds fired in four Seattle drive-by shootings

 

The federal government must have magic crime fighting powers to stop terrorists. The magic powers don’t work on crimes like bank robbery or drug trafficking.

How are terrorists kept out while heroin comes in?

Think terrorists are smart enough to pose as drug traffickers- then cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Why does the federal government maintain a Homeland Security police state that can’t keep heroin and cocaine from entering the US?

Domestic heroin busts are reported as some sort of law & order success-

Each one is evidence that- 11 years after 911- the US Dept. of Homeland Security is unable to prevent criminal traffic from entering the US.

If the federal government has the crime fighting skills to wipe out all major terror strikes since 911- why wouldn’t they use those skills to shut down other categories of violent crimes?

Santa & public relations will be safe-
