Philadelphia's Top Prosecutor Is Prepared to Arrest Federal Agents.

'After Trump said he would send agents to more cities, Philly’s district attorney lays out how he might criminally charge federal officers.

After numerous reports and lawsuits in Portland regarding un-badged and un-uniformed federal officers arresting, beating, and detaining people in unmarked vehicles, the Trump administration’s response is that they’re going to do it even more, and in more cities. Saying that his federal agents are doing a “fantastic job,” Trump has suggested that he will also deploy agents in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore and Milwaukee to do the same.

In one of those cities, the city prosecutor has already preemptively warned Trump’s police forces what he will do if they bring the same tactics to Philadelphia:

“My dad volunteered and served in World War II to fight fascism, like most of my uncles, so we would not have an American president brutalizing and kidnapping Americans for exercising their constitutional rights and trying to make America a better place, which is what patriots do,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner in a statement. “Anyone, including federal law enforcement, who unlawfully assaults and kidnaps people will face criminal charges from my office.”

Trump claims the federal intervention is needed due to excessive violence, particularly around federal statues and monuments. But legal experts have said the reported federal actions in Portland far exceed legal boundaries.'>>>

2. This is excellent, and should be done in all larger cities so the cities can protect their own...

citizens from these out of control thugs/federals, who are using dubious excuses to justify themselves. I suspect that they are going to be caught in numerous acts of illegal actions, being that there are numerous cell phone videos, etc. out there on the streets of where protests (by far peaceful) are occurring.

===> But legal experts have said the reported federal actions in Portland far exceed legal boundaries <===

4. Yes. I wonder if this will lead to 'States Rights' vs. the federal government. I do seem to recall

that the governor of Oregon said that he didn't invite the feds in, and the feds said it themselves, that they were there w/o invitation to protect federal facilities. By what right do the feds have the right to scoop up peaceful protesters on the streets (not even near a federal facility)?

6. They're headed to Chicago next, so let's see what happens this weekend

If they get arrested in Chicago, it might be a quick end to this nasty little experiment.

Just sayin'

A reserved and reasonable approach.
