Kinsman, IL | Scene of FBI raid
Minuscule town raided by FBIKinsman, Illinois is a sleepy little town with a population just over 100. It’s about 50 miles southwest of Chicago, and there isn’t much there, not even a gas station or a single cash advance store. All that’s in the town is a church, a Post Office, and a bar. Most business there is agricultural, or agriculture related. However, a small butcher shop on the outskirts of town was of great interest to the FBI.
The reasons aren’t clear, but the targets sure were
First World Management runs a butcher shop on the edge of town, and the meat it provides is meat that is slaughtered and butchered to Islamic dietary specifications. Islamic dietary laws are very specific about meat, and for meat to be considered Halal (similar to Kosher) it must be procured according to a very specific set of rules, or dhabiha. The shop in question slaughters and butchers dhabiha meat for consumers, most of which are in Chicago. There are only a few employees, all Muslims – less than 10, most of which live in trailers behind the shop.
Over a dozen FBI vehicles, snipers and a helicopter…and no arrests!
Nearly 100 FBI personnel descended on this location on Sunday, October 18th, and no arrests were made. (This cost taxpayers a lot more than a few payday loans worth.) No one in the town, not even the mayor was aware anything was going to happen. The only people who did were the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department, who were notified two weeks in advance of the incident. You can read up on the incident at Fox News, though more coverage is likely to be forthcoming.
Aren’t we supposed to NOT have secret police in this country?
It’s speculated that the raid was done in order to root out immigration violations. However, no arrests were made, and the size of it makes it look like something beyond the scope of immigration affairs. There was a recent terrorism arrest and plot, but if this were an anti-terror raid, why wasn’t anyone detained, and why weren’t any charges filed? The FBI is a multi-billion dollar a year expense on the taxpayers, and it is highly dubious that they don’t have anything to do. State intimidation is one of the things that the Founders and Framers were universally against, so this looks suspicious to say the least.
