Vegetables Attacked in Texas!

In case you haven't heard about it...


This organic farm in Arlington Texas was raided by a SWAT team.


The excuse was that they were looking for marijuana (of course).


The Huff Post story is here.


I get that the place was messy.  I'm not a fan of buried cars...


and I KNOW this guy would be annoying



He's never wearing a shirt and there are shirts hanging right there in this picture.  No one needs to be that natural all the time...


But, really, a SWAT team?  And no marijuana to be found!  Not that THAT would be an excuse for this unruly and thuggish behavior... What's the deal, guys?

Not sure the riot SWAT gear was needed to protect themselves from the okra plants...so I'm thinking they just wanted to scare the hell out of people. Hmmm. Now why would they ever want to do that?

That guy doesn't look like he needs an entire SWAT Team to be subdued EVEN IF he was doing whatever they Imagined that he was?! *LOL* Much too laid back and Zen... I agree, sounds like overkill. And I'm sure there are some Thugs and Violent Syndicated Crime Rings they could have concentrated on raiding instead... and probably ACTUALLY found something worthy of the effort!!!

LOL WTH are you kidding...definitely overkill....Yeah he looked like a "really dangerous" character growing all those organic plants... ...what is going on in this country....this is laughable & pathetic at the same time...

Wow this does seem incredibly over the top. Why would they do something like that???

For excellent insight into why they would do this try watching "Farmageddon". A documentary easily found on Netflix and extremely eye opening.
