Cutting the Gordian Knot: Limited-Scale Martial Law in Aurora, Colorado

Following an armed robbery at a local Wells Fargo bank, police in Aurora, Colorado arrested everyone in the vicinity until the suspect was found. This action amounted to limited-scale martial law.

Believing that the alleged robber was stopped a nearby red light, the police barricaded that section of the street – which could be considered a reasonable tactic. However, they dragged more than forty people from their vehicles, handcuffed them, and held them for more than four hours – which is not.

Drivers and passengers “were handcuffed, then were told what was going on and were asked for permission to search the car,” recalled Officer Frank Fania. “They all granted permission, and once nothing was found in their cars, they were un-handcuffed.”

This is just one piece of the bigger picture showing that the US is headed for martial law… Check out if you want to see more signs that our Constitution is being dismantled, and that small-town cops are cracking heads of anyone who disagrees.
