For reference, here is the clip of the girl's testimony:
Here's the man's testimony:
They (this group) weren't trying to causes problems, but had the intent of making people realize that there are certain rights that shouldn't be infringed. The government felt very threatened by this and has been trying to intimidate this group of people to encourage them to leave (and certain people turn themselves into the law). Traditionally, through enough fear tactics and making things more difficult, people have given up, but in this case they would not back down. When the fear didn't work, the government needed to do something more drastic.
The government became more and more aggressive (and somewhat passive aggressive) trying to intimidate these people, but it wasn't working. There was a lot of anger building up by the police force because of the problems this group was causing them (and government pressure to get this story shut down). The real intent of the police was to form a road block, and arrest the people in the vehicle, but the anger caused a "trigger happy" result. It was like they wanted a reason to fire a shot (almost hoped for it) and once the first shot was taken, they all let loose. This man wasn't trying to run or grab a weapon, but in an instant they decided to make an example of this man (to strengthen the fear and create a deterrent for this behavior), Free thinkers are seen as some of the biggest threats.
If this pocket of social unrest doesn't resolve itself, I see more and more of this behavior. The stories will be twisted that the "officer was in fear" or "he/she looked to be going for a weapon" but the reality is they want the people to stand down.
And that is all I have for this reading. Love and light to Robert and his family.
