4:50 AM… Federal Agents pull up, two Flash Bang Grenades and then…a recorded message?

“Federal Agents enforcing a search warrant” (Neighbors name) “Please come out of your house with your hands up”

Repeatedly played over a loud speaker while the agents waited in defensible positions out front.

This is how my neighbor was arrested 1-26-2013 at 4:50 in the morning.

I was sleeping with my bedroom window open since it was a beautiful night out. (I apologize to anyone freezing their cheeks off in other parts of the country; I currently live in Oceanside CA, so I was enjoying some fresh ocean air).

I believe what started to wake me was the large number of cars pulling up, down the street. Seconds later I was fully awake when the flash bang grenades went off; however, initially I believed these to be shotgun blasts. Because the blasts sounded so close, I hit the floor running to make sure my family members were safe.

Then the above (poorly paraphrased) recording started playing over and over lasting approximately 2 minutes. By the time I had checked on my loved ones and clothed myself, the recording had stopped and my neighbor was being taken away in the back of a 4 door car with blacked out windows.

The “Agents” I saw were dressed like your typical G-men- not soldiers in Afghanistan. There was no SWAT team. No local Police. No Urban Assault Vehicle. No door breech. And from what I could tell the flash bangs were deployed in the entryway, next to the closed front door.

Has anyone else seen anything like this?

Is this a new method of serving Search Warrants? Is it to prevent unwanted attention, lawsuits, keep the body counts down, or?

If you don’t know what Flash Bang Grenades are: 

The police in this video think FBGs are funny, but no one in my neighborhood was laughing.

  1. These Federal agents are clearly in violation of California Penal Code Section 403-420.1 for disturbing the peace at 4:50 AM. Of course they always believe they are above the law.

  2. I wonder if tose pigs in that video had a explosive permit for that flash grenade they blew off and were laughing about. Hell I guess that they could just say that that was just another training manuver or something.

  3. What would have been a blast would have been pre-recorded sounds from inside of people with guns blazing …

  4. As you have seen insome movies. During WWII the Nazis come dutring the day. Knocked politely at the door & then take you away.
    In USSR the KGB always was coming during the night & banged loudly at the door to take you away!
    In our “free” & “democratic” country the black clad & masked goons, break your
    door down, throw flash/ bang grenade in to your home. Stomp on your face, put the gun barrel against your head & then maybe without further humiliation take you away. & you can consider yourself lucky, that they didn’t use a drone against you.

  5. In Iraq, the resistance would sometimes prepare a house to ‘welcome’ an American raid, then one way or another induce the soldiers to come pay a visit.
    Usually the welcome consisted of large amounts of explosives.

    Not quite there yet in America. But I suspect it won’t be long, with the levels of hate and loathing that kind of behavor is building.

  6. K Miller, that’s a leading question but I will answer it because the answer is universal.

    You have to know your rights and how far YOU are willing to go to protect them. Once you know that then preparations take care of themselves.
