    Saw this story, as reported by Brooke Baldwin. I found it quite interesting that in a story she reported just prior to this one, you had the nutty-acting sheriff, in the Pennsylvania small-town, cursing at the camera. And, maniacally professing that he would shoot any government officials that tried to violate his First & Second Amendment Rights. And, his behavior was so objectionable that the town council was considering relieving him of his position, because he was "truly scary."
    And then, when you see this story about the police behavior at the home of these folks, in Georgia (who just happened to be Black....the sheriff in the Pennsylvania story, was White), you really have to ask the question: who really, needs to be more fearful of having their Constitutional Rights violated?? Unless that sheriff, actually did shoot someone, outside of his appointed duty (as a law officer), the chance of armed officers coming to his home, and treating him like the people in the Georgia story, are about one-in-ten. And, even if that sheriff had presented himself armed with a weapon, when the police arrived at his home, he still would have had a much better chance of not being shot, as those Black men would have had, without any weapons being found.

    This is the worst I have ever seen. All the police need to be fired and that Pay Day for the victims had better be a big one. No one should ever have to go through this sort of abuse by an officer of the law. Just goes to show, people with badges think they are above the law and can do anything to anyone.

    Pay your bills, and then you won't have cops at your door serving a warrant!

    Not sure why anyone gets upset its not like anything is going to happen to these officers. They will just sweep it under the rug and no action will be taken other than a slap on the wrist if that.

    This is horrible. These guys need to check the address on Google maps :). I can't even imagine something like this happening to my family. This must have been so scary. I would sue everyone.

    This was a crazy one to watch.

    Local Law 196 is a NYC DOB law that requires workers and supervisors at most NYC construction sites to obtain a SST card by completing specific courses through a NYC DOB approved training provider. Able Safety offers multiple packages to complete this training at great low prices. All our SST classes can be completed entirely online from any device (phone, tablet, pc/mac). The NYC DOB’s SST compliance deadline was originally set for September 1st 2020. The deadline has since been extended to March 1st 2021. By this date you will need the following to be allowed to work on most construction sites in NYC.
