Early this week, the National Review came out with an explosive cover story detailing the experience of three private citizens subjected to armed police with battering rams conducting pre-dawn raids of their homes, seizing cell phones and personal computers, and admonishing them to tell no one — even as the authorities apparently tipped off favored news reporters.
Many more were subjected to the police home invasions than the three interviewed for David French’s National Review article, “Wisconsin’s Shame: ‘I Thought It Was a Home Invasion’.”
The targets were not dealing meth-amphetamines. They were not plotting an imminent terrorist bombing. They were political conservatives who supported Republicans during the 2011-12 recall elections.
