Breitbart and other are reporting that an FBI team used upwards of two dozen agents to arrest a Catholic pro-life protestor in Philadelphia this week. It's a harrowing tale:
Mark Houck, the founder and president of The King’s Men – a group that helps men overcome pornography addiction – was arrested at his rural Pennsylvania home on Friday for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act during his regular sidewalk counseling outside of an abortion clinic in 2021. Speaking with LifeSiteNews, Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie, said that around 25 to 30 fully-armored FBI agents stormed their property early Friday morning, aiming their rifles as the children screamed in horror.
Over my career, I conducted hundreds of arrests. Many of these pursuant to a warrant, at a front door. This type warrant requires no more than two officers. Having three officers is a surplusage. Having four officers approaches Gestapo tactics. What was the reasoning behind two dozen armed agents? It's simple. The FBI is sending a message that dissent will not be tolerated.
At one point, I tried to defend the "hardworking, sincere, reasonable" FBI agents. I can no longer do that. The FBI has gone rogue as an American institution. It's time for the good agents (if there are any left) to resign, or transfer to another agency. Honest, hardworking cops cannot serve a corrupt agency. At some point, it becomes about honor, and if you serve an agency with no honor, you lose your honor.
It's time for a huge change in that agency, and it starts with the honorable field agents saying Enough.
