We were warned: "FBI interrogates 16 year old over Paul support"

Can any body smell another Randy Weaver in the making?

PolicyMic: - Ron Paul has long warned Americans of the dangers of a federal government-supported police state, and now, it seems his worst fears are coming to life. A 16-year-old Ron Paul supporter has been questioned by the FBI after he created a YouTube video for a school project which highlights how America is slipping into a police state.

That's right, a child has been questioned by the authorities solely because of his support for libertarian Ron Paul. Let alone that the video earned Justin Hallman an A+ with his teacher in his American Government class.

Here are the details of the case: Hallman put together the video, which focuses on Ron Paul, Anonymous, military drills taking place in American cities, and free speech for his high school government class. One month later, he was at his family home when FBI agents knocked on the door saying to Hallman's mother that "We need to talk to your son."

should have asked, "how much are you paying?"

It sounds like the FBI was looking for a recruit to spy on Occupy. Occupy must be a bigger concern to the FBI than the Liberty movement. That's reassuring :).The 16 year old should have asked, "how much are you paying?" It would have added an extra dimension to the conversation. Why should the FBI expect the kid to be doing possibly dangerous work for nothing?

What were the dynamics of handing in a paper in high school that was read by the FBI? Did the teacher have friends in the FBI? The kid did get a good grade so it wasn't as if his teacher was hostile toward him or the topic on his paper. We hear about little boys who get into all sorts of trouble because they draw a picture of a gun. Some schools hand that over for an inquiry by social services as policy. Is there any such program for older students who write or draw things that aren't mainstream?

alex jones has his fingers in this pie


What's wrong with...

Alex Jones? Seems to me he has done more to wake people up than anyone else alive...And that includes Dr. Paul...I may be wrong but I am sure you will correct me if so...LOL. I personally wouldn't pass on any story showing the current police state, Gov. monitoring of the internet, or suppression of the freedom of speech...Good day

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

My biggest fear

is that they will take a page out of their playbook that they used upon Weaver. Get him set up on a trumped up charge and black mail him into spying on who ever they want. If he doesn't cooperate murder a few of his family.

We can still restore the Republic!

Just.. Wow...

Young Justin began the polysci lesson

for his classmates and the FBI proved him correct. Every time the iron fist shows behind the velvet, more minds are awakened. It's the courageous ones like Justin who make a difference.

Somebody needs to get this info

to Dr Paul, so the next time he's on TV he can make reference to the Totalitarian Police State actions used on a kid for showing the Truth. The PTB's don't want the sheeple who are die hard GOP and Dem supporters to see or learn what is really transpiring in our 'once' free nation!

Reality Check

Hopefully Ben Swann will pick this up for some more exposure

what irony that the visit

what irony that the visit from the fbi itself proves the point of the video.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

If you think about it

it is getting a little freakier to post anything on the net now. I find myself backing off from posting videos and comments lately on sites for this exact reason. Wow, you don't realize you are not free until you start talking against your government. Thanks for the video!!!!

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

If you're in fear

then you are not free and are under their control.

This is exactly what we are fighting against!

Stay strong and keep voicing the truth!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

that's what they want---

us to fear. that's how all tyrannical governments have taken over--before the web even. Make the people too afraid to say the truth. Don't fall for it. If we fear to speak up now, we'll have much to be sorry for in the future!

It took a 16 year old

to have the integrity, intelligence and strength of conviction to put this out. As a product of our federally financed education system I'd say he's doing fine. Time will only tell what is in store for him but you can bet he's on their radar.

You cannot retain freedom without exercising it.

That's awesome

Great saying
