First I will start by saying to (a recent letter writer) you must be
a shut-in. You have never gotten the pleasure of the MANS unit before
I am assuming?

Well let me tell you how it went for me. I left a local store and
within a mile of the store, I was pulled over by one plain car and
plain SUV both with blue lights.

Four men with guns drawn pointing at me and using profane language
ordered me out face down on the asphalt handcuffed me for (my safety)
they said.

I had no idea if they were police or just carjackers, because blue
lights are not only sold to police but anyone that has cash can get
them . I was detained (for my safety) for about two hours, questioned
and threatened about where I was going, where I had been and I may be
wrong, but its still a free country and I don't have to have travel
papers and report where I'm going to law enforcement.

When I arrived home there were the same four men plus two more
uniformed officers who said they had a search warrant for my house
which I asked to see (there was not one) so I refused them entry.

At that time I was placed in handcuffs again and they went to work
searching with a warrant. About two hours later I was again released
and left to clean up the mess. The next day I call the local sheriff
to ask questions about the night before but he had no record of it

I was told the MANS unit did not report to him and did what they
wanted.(End of conversation).

Since then I have been harassed more times than I care to count, all
because I was seen talking to a man I went to school with and had not
seen in over 20 years.

For talking to an old friend who they said was a drug kingpin so
because I was seen talking to a childhood friend that I knew about in
over 20 yrs. I was a suspect.

So COWBOYS IN BLUES or so-called MANS unit accountable for there
actions. Don't let your rights be violated. Stand up for yourself.
