The proverbial knock on the door in the middle of the night; or "Hell hath no fury like Planned Parenthood scorned":
Investigators with the California Department of [Inj]ustice on Tuesday raided the home of David Daleiden, the [pro-life] activist behind a series of undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood, the activist said.
Authorities seized a laptop and multiple hard drives from his Orange County apartment, Daleiden said in an email. The equipment contained all of the video Daleiden had filmed as part of his thirty-month project, “including some very damning footage that has yet to be released to the public,” he said. [emphasis added]
Well, THAT's convenient for PP, isn't it? The Cali-stapo claimed to have a search warrant, but who really knows? What they have not done - yet- is file any charges against Daleiden, as a PP-affiliated prosecutor in Texas did three months ago, or even formally subpoena said equipment and damning undercover digital footage. Kind of like Rhodie flying away with Tony Stark's "war machine" suit in Iron Man II, they just invaded his home and took it. Which would constitute armed robbery if it was anybody but the government doing it.
The biggest surprise by my reckoning? That they didn't kidnap - oh, my apologies, "take into custody" - Daleiden himself. But then from this incident, it's clear that Acupulco Golden State authorities can grab him whenever they want.
A spokeswoman for California Attorney General [-cum-U.S. Senator-in-waiting] Kamala Harris (D) said she could not comment on an ongoing investigation.
Which means she WOULD not comment on an investigation that nobody knew was "ongoing" until she sent in her goons to pull this Stasi-esque stunt.
But the raid confirms that California is among the States looking into possible criminal activity on the part of Daleiden and his organization, the Center for Medical Progress, which have been the center of controversy since releasing videos [showing] that Planned Parenthood illegally sells fetal tissue for a profit.
And NOT the criminal activity that is industrialized genocide and the marketing of the pitiful (but salable!) remains to the highest bidding ghoul/cannibal/neo-Nazi.
This is the worst police state abuse of power I can recall taking place in this country since....not quite a year ago, actually. I guess that's what happens to you when you take a stand against the Left and actually draw a little PR "blood": massive KBG-like retaliation.
Otherwise known as "outing".
I hope Daleiden can afford private security, or some patriotic veterans can lend a hand and protect him. It's a pity the Bundys foolishly shot their wad in Oregon; this would have been a far better and more worthy use of their time and efforts.
