Floridians Encouraged To Report Neighbors Who "Hate Government"

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


A new $1 million dollar program led by Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw aimed at “violence prevention” is encouraging Floridians to report their neighbors for making hateful comments about the government, a chilling reminder of how dissent is being characterized as an extremist threat.
“Bradshaw plans to use the extra $1 million to launch “prevention intervention” units featuring specially trained deputies, mental health professionals and caseworkers. The teams will respond to citizen phone calls to a 24-hour hotline with a knock on the door and a referral to services, if needed,” reports the Palm Beach Post.
Bradshaw makes it clear that the kind of behavior which could prompt a visit from the authorities includes anti-government political statements that may be deemed a prelude to violent action. “We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’”
This sheriff is also NOT on this list. I think the keyword here however is kill, not hate government.  So the headline is alittle misleading but just alittle. -Mort

      Sheriff Ric Bradshaw…Nazi Gestapo. I’m just wondering if he took off his Nazi BarryO arm band for the photo.

      NO, the headline is not misleading, his statement is. you know that. and when’s the last time ‘they’ knocked on your door and asked if you were ok and you said yeah and they said ok, thanks, then walked away? don’t be stupid. you know what’s going on here. they’re all over tex ala fla, places they don’t have a firm foot hold. florida voted for romney, you’ve seen the documented voter fraud stuff. this is a sham, they will be contacted by ”concerned citizens” regularly, you watch. this gives them ”probable cause” to do WTF they want! resist.

      Hate WHICH government? Hate an o’bama REGIME? Hate a Constitutional government?
      To leftist/progressive lemmings it doesn’t matter.

      If you hate the so-called government as I do I suggest you call this guy’s office and tell him like I’m going to do right !@#$ing now.

    • londoner

      How about Bradshaw knocks on Obama’s door and asks him where his legal birth certificate and social security number are?

      • DennisB

        VERY SOON….Mr. Obama, Your under Arrest…Put your hands on your head…You Have The Right…

      The puritans, founders, revolutionaries etc. would hate modern government. It’s become what they sacrificed and died for to escape. .

      I know that my ex wife encourages the children of my former marriage to hate me with a passion, in fact it is positively encouraged and this is a guy that enforces that practice in his jurisdiction, but the puzzling thing here is your local snitch or nosy neighbor can get a psychological boost by having you placed on a watch those evil people list, without so much as a conscience. It would appear to be the preliminary way of people who don’t like other people to get the authorities to put them on the me last list. As an example if the ex bruises the kids, even if I have not seen them in a while, there will immediately be at my doorstep two or three government agencies, and worse they do not need any proof, none whatsoever. We live in scary times, very scary.

        Demur AND Andrew Essen,,,,, this is the saddest thing I’ve ever read. i don’t even have to respond, you both know exactly what you’re talking about. — Equalizer,,,, thanks, i appreciate that. really do.

      Is there a link to this in the local media? Can’t find it anywhere.

    • mfritz0

      Someone need to report that jackass. If he loved America, he would respect anyone’s right to express their constitutional opinion. It’s in the “Bill of Rights” someone needs to force feed him that!

    • SethteS89

      -__________- Viva la Cuba, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, etc. if it’s “hate” and not obviously “kill” which is immoral as the **** faces have their deaths one day with their own consciousness.

      Hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate…………….
      I ain’t got no weapons nor do I have an immoral mind to kill.
      PFfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffftttttt…. It’s a good measure but not upon ‘hate’ because I do “hate my rigged Dictatorship Corporation-enslaved government”. -_- :’( :lol: :cry: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :eek: :shock: :shock: :shock: :idea: :arrow: :twisted: :cry: :shock: :eek: :!: :!: :!: :?: :?: :!: :!: :!: :!: :eek: :shock:

      Hey Sheriff Ric Bradshaw,

      Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of
      Eldaberrys!!!! Now go away before I taunt you a
      second time!!

      When you have sheeple in a state of fear then this is an effective “thought- police” tactic. It also has a pedigree as it worked in USSR and Europe in the last century. A way to thwart this would be to inform on his mother, father, wife, mistress, children, in-laws, cousins, local shop keeper andanyone and everyone who is in contact with this piece of sh*t. Bet he won’t get re-elected. Besides there’s a million dollars at his disposal so someone’s gonna get paid. I would sure hate to be in his children’s shoes when they go to high school tomorrow. :lol:
