Surely, just surely, they had a reason for drawing their weapons. I thought they were rules regarding pulling your weapon. I'm not sure that raw foods qualifies.
I am not worried about what the cops "want" -- this is about our freedom to eat real food and not get shot in the process. It is no new news that policeman just do what they are told. As far as criminal backgrounds go -- they were sent in to confiscate cheese and honey, not Crack. The story is less about improper use of force than about powerful interests who seek to control the world's food supply.Maybe the rules are when you have a warrant, and you "raid" a building with unknown person or persons,,you do so with guns drawn until you access the threat. It's a little late the other way around. Wasn't there and not privy to the criminal backgrounds of the people. Cops want to go home at the end of the day
