“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
If any terrorist, foreign agent, or other nefarious agent of one of the many “mystery benefactors” that police rely on for funding in the increasing ‘Israelification’ initiatives in the US-look no further than the cops swept up in ‘domestic violence.’
Certainly, there’s a story; human, intelligent, and counter-narrational story, there.
Cops in SWAT team, level up on gay cop in West Hollywood

swat on smb[Updated, 9:32 pm, March 7, 2016 – The Sheriff’s Department released earlier tonight the barricaded suspect’s identity, which turns out to be a former openly-gay law enforcement officer known for his activism and scrapes with of the law]
West Hollywood took great pride in 1999 as it embarked on a widening of the city’s main drag, Santa Monica Boulevard.
So too in 1999 did Mitch Grobeson take pride in the release of “Outside the Badge,” his novel about a police officer trying to solve the murders of male street prostitutes in Hollywood.
The Boulevard just wasn’t wide enough this weekend to accommodate the ex-cop/activist/author barricaded inside his home with a gun threatening to shoot passersby and the SWAT team that was called upon to help him see reason.
Sheriff’s tonight identified Mitchell Grobeson as the man arrested while the famed Route 66 saw itself choked off by Los Angeles County Sheriff deputies between 10:00 and 2:30 mid-day Friday at West Knoll, a block west of La Cienega Boulevard.
Beginning around 10:10 am as they responded to an assault call, say Sheriff’s spokes persons, Mr. Grobeson, allegedly armed, threatened to shoot at people on the street, but did not opened fire, according to Sheriff’s Sgt. Enrique Madujan.
Deputies reporting to the scene, after a several hour vigil, called in LASD’s Special Enforcement Bureau and Crisis Negotiation Team.
They responded to the location, and saw to it that the surrounding area was evacuated, the news release said.
Mitch Grobeson, renown for his decades long fight to end discrimination in the LAPD, was the man barricaded in his home threatening to shoot himself or anyone who came near.
Mitch Grobeson, renown for his decades long fight to end discrimination in the LAPD, was the man barricaded in his home threatening to shoot himself or anyone who came near. Sheriff’s department spokes persons did not describe Mr. Grobeson’s weapon.
After several hours of discussion, negotiators from SWAT convinced Mr. Grobeson to come out of the house, unarmed, and after a short time, according to the department, the suspect carefully exited the building as instructed.
Deputies then arrested him without incident.
After taking the man into custody and booking him on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, bail was set $250,000.
The department did not initially release Mr. Grobeson’s name.
The incident is alleged to have begun with an assault by Mr. Grobeson on his boyfriend, who remained unnamed.
