ATF Looks REALLY Bad In Hearings About Pre-Dawn Arkansas Raid Gone Wrong

Team Biden has a nasty affection for unnecessary and massive displays of force

On the same day that we’re digesting news that Merrick Garland had lethal force instructions as part of the Mar-A-Lago raid, Congress is holding hearings on a man shot dead in his home by ATF.

Like we’ve seen at Mar-A-Lago, at certain pro-life protesters with no criminal history, and in several members of Team Trump, the Federal Government made a decision to show up in numbers with guns drawn, despite the availability of far less intrusive options, like subpoenas, or meeting him at work.

It’s not even clear that Malinowski had committed any crimes worthy of Federal investigation, let alone a massive (and ultimately lethal) show of force in a pre-dawn raid.

Here’s the background of the Congressional hearing and the events that triggered it as given by the local press in Arkansas:

Bud Cummins, the attorney representing the family of late Little Rock airport director Bryan Malinowski, told a U.S. House subcommittee Wednesday that just 57 seconds passed between the time federal agents covered Malinowski’s door camera with tape in the pre-dawn hours of March 19 and the moment they fatally shot him.
Ten carloads of agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Little Rock police wearing full-tactical SWAT gear arrived at Malinowski’s large West Little Rock home at 6:01 a.m., an hour and 15 minutes before sunrise, Cummins said.
The remarks came during a meeting of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, which was created by Republicans in January 2023 to investigate alleged instances of government overreach. Chaired by right-wing Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, the subcommittee on Wednesday took up the topic of the ATF and what the panel’s website describes as “actions taken by the bureau that erode Americans’ trust in the agency.”

Here is the exchange Jim Jordan had with a lawyer representing the late Bryan Malinowski and his family, where they discuss what happened, the lack of any real pretext to have taken such action, and the choice to go in guns blazing when there were several far less dangerous options available in how the warrant might have been served.

The point is, when less dangerous and intrusive options were available, the Biden administration ignored them in favor of overwhelming force.

THAT is the context in which we need to consider not only the death of Bryan Malinowski, but the raids of non-violent abortion activists with no criminal history, of Trump associates, and even the home of a former President.

They are petty thugs that COULD avoid the drama and risk of a dangerous confrontation, but made a conscious choice NOT to do so.

And for anyone rushing to the defence of that Mar-A-Lago raid: one whistleblower claims he was punished because he refused to take part in that raid, which he objected to on both moral and precedural grounds.

Merrick Garland, on the other hand, was more than happy to sign off on it. Personally.

After Trump had the gall to put Gorsuch in the seat Obama had nominated HIM to sit in, one can only imagine the grin on Garland’s face as he signed off on that order.

I Talk Back to the Devil is an action manual that sports thirty pure fire proclamations against the powers of darkness in three different categories covering, the wealth, the walk and the warfare of the Christian against Satan and his defeated ilk.

This NEW book will put a serrated edge on the Christian’s prayer life in these troubled times. This slim tome will embolden the believer to stop taking Satan’s crap.
