Now, will the Corporatist Govt employees finally 'see' the type of country they've helped turn it into, when it starts attacking them, in earnest??
"I don't care what people think I may have done, and the truth will come out on that," the former Utah Attorney General said Tuesday. "But there was nothing that justifies what they did yesterday in my home."

SALT LAKE CITY — An angry and emotional Mark Shurtleff says agents who searched his home Monday used "Dirty Harry" tactics and traumatized his teenage daughter.
The Utah Department of Public Safety and the FBI served search warrants at the Sandy houses of Shurtleff and his successor John Swallow late Monday afternoon. The agencies, along with Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill and Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings, are conducting a criminal investigation into alleged wrongdoing during their tenures in the attorney general's office.
Shurtleff, who is in Washington, D.C., said his 17-year-old daughter was in the bathroom when investigators entered the house. He said they ordered her out of the room with her hands in the air. Four agents wearing body armor pointed guns at her, including one who had a laser sight trained on her chest, he said.
As Attorney General, Shurtleff saw nothing exceptionable about using military tactics to execute warrants dealing with non-violent offenses. All of this occurred, of course, when he was part of the “who,” rather than the “whom” – when he belonged to the exalted fraternity of official coercion, before becoming a mere Mundane.
Shurtleff’s perspective on routine acts of state terrorism has changed in predictable ways now that he’s a nail, rather than a hammer.

Sandy, Utah resident Mark Shurtleff was thousands of miles away when he received the news that his son and daughter had joined the ever-growing ranks of Americans whose homes have been violated, and families have been terrorized, by SWAT raids.
The Berserkers who invaded his home “showed up in masks,” Shurtleff protested, relaying the account provided by the victims. A dozen officers wearing body armor and carrying assault rifles “burst through the door screaming and yelling at my kids.”
Shurtleff’s 17-year-old daughter was in the bathroom when the strangers in body armor burst in and painted her body with the laser sights of their assault rifles. The raiders – a combined force of state police and FBI agents — “trashed” the home, Shurtleff insisted, seizing the children’s computers and memory cards from his wife’s digital camera. They also intimidated his 20-year-old son into providing them with computer passwords and the key to the family’s gun safe.
“These John Wayne wannabes, freakin’ Clinton Eastwood `Dirty Harry’ tactics were absolutely unacceptable and unneeded,” Shurtleff complained on a local talk radio program. He characterized their behavior as “recklessly negligent,” and accused Scott Nesbitt, the chief investigator who presided over the raid, of making deliberate misrepresentations in the affidavit that resulted in the search warrant.
Genius statement of the Century: “I think if they’ll do that to me, with my entire life and career in service to law enforcement and public safety, they’ll do it to anybody” - Fmr. UT A.G. Mark Shurtleff
Well... is it Too Late to apologize, for the statist fascist colluders??
