Unmanned drones that can taser -- -- person from the sky and can even launch a grenade.
These are the latest toys -- Houston Texas watching in the police department purchased using its Homeland Security grant given to it by the federal government.
Is this the next phase of the police state -- cops can play video games -- our civil liberties and with our lives.
Here with a frightening analysis is Lew Rockwell -- institute for our current chair Lou it's a pleasure -- welcome back to freedom watch.
-- great to be with you say it ain't so say that the police department of Houston.
Does not have unmanned drones from the sky.
That contains -- one or kill them.
As the military has been doing overseas.
No it's true and of course of the federal government is as you mentioned supplying these things.
They're all federal ages various federal agencies have them.
I -- -- the state police will have on the local police they do -- in the afforded dog fights among all the predator drones but of course they.
They -- also are developing X rays that can see through the blue walls of your house they can spy on you in your backyard while your Sunday then.
And as you said it continues -- you should have -- -- into your head of horror even kill you with a grenade.
And we're supposed to feel -- about this supposed to think this is to fight terrorism when of course it actually is terrorism.
Most of what we're told about terrorism as I think.
A phony baloney.
But of course the federal government is establishing a police state.
Cameras everywhere on every light pole -- reading our emails listening to our phone calls and now true chewing your backyard if they don't like -- -- doing.
No trial no jury just boom.
Well well yeah.
It starts with the federal government.
The Patriot Act on on -- thousands of federal agents to write their own search warrants to capture the keystrokes.
On our computers when we use them to get our our legal records.
Now the federal government's gonna give money to local police department I think you just made a very good point low and that is.
If Houston has this Dallas is gonna want it -- Dallas has -- I'm just naming cities in Texas to start with -- going to want it.
Those three police departments are gonna are going to have it.
The Texas Rangers the name for their state police are going to want -- in a Texas has it.
-- new York and California and Illinois and New Jersey be far behind.
Judges -- just the existence of the swat teams which are militarized and armored.
Units nothing like what local police used to be are themselves a sign of the police state now they're gonna have these these drones and it's not -- the big cities every small town every small city is gonna have that are drones.
The you know that the federal government among all the other wonderful things are doing for us giving us a depression and so or.
-- drone eyes the whole country make assault vulnerable anytime they don't like what we're doing bomb and you know you've got nothing to say about it.
Maybe you can bring a suit afterwards that they'll say is too secret to be examine your out of.
Court and and much of this has happened without any popular of any decisions by by bureaucrats.
And law enforcement.
Started with the federal government one hand the Patriot Act and the other hand the president decided become judge jury and executioner.
On an American and a foreign country doesn't need -- -- would have tried for a trial the evidence of guilt the so overwhelming are we know their argument what do we do about this Lou Rockwell.
-- we also brought to focus on the of the global which we call -- the security industrial complex.
But the vast network of industries that are making so much money off these drones and all the rest of the police you know the tanks that local cops have and so forth so I think we need to educate ourselves.
About reading your new book.
Would be one thing people to do or road reading your previous book on the Patriot Act.
We have to educate ourselves we have to understand what our freedoms are.
Who are enemies are and it's not some guy in Yemen.
