 A small organic farm in Arlington, Texas, was the target of a massive police action last week that included aerial surveillance, a SWAT raid and a 10-hour search.
Members of the local police raiding party had a search warrant for marijuana plants, which they failed to find at the Garden of Eden farm. But farm owners and residents who live on the property told a Dallas-Ft. Worth NBC station that the real reason for the law enforcement exercise appears to have been code enforcement. The police seized "17 blackberry bushes, 15 okra plants, 14 tomatillo plants ... native grasses and sunflowers," after holding residents inside at gunpoint for at least a half-hour, property owner Shellie Smith said in a statement. The raid lasted about 10 hours, she said...

This is exactly what to expect from the Surveillance State and its incredible need to know everything and compel complete obedience.

This "over-kill" is exactly like what happened at first in Waco, Texas.
In order to secure the most fire power and support, even a small visit to grandma's garden becomes part of the War on Drugs.

There is no awareness that American citizens are the objects of these types of actions. They are glorified military actions put into action by our military worshiping police state flunkeys.
