Hero Opens Up on Minivan Full of Kids

Here’s a video of a Hero cop blasting away at a minivan full of children: All this began over “speeding” – a minor traffic ticket. The woman got mad at being mulcted by the buzz cut thug – and drove off. Not recklessly – but she made the almost-fatal error of showing contempt for the…

To acclimate kids to random official terror: “We actually thought that someone was going to come in there and kill us.” WINTER HAVEN, FL — Classrooms full of students and staff members were terrified when gun-wielding police officers unexpectedly charged in and locked down their middle school — an event that was actually part of…
