Update on Mark Dayton's Raw Milk Crackdown: Here is the Warrant

The State of Minnesota is flat broke. In my 14 years of experience in the criminal justice system, many crimes, such as property crimes, are not usually investigated by the Police. I have had police on numerous occasions flatly refuse to investigate car thefts or even take a report. DWI traffic stops, prostitution sting operations, and now private food clubs draw the gaze of the "officials." The United States is now one of the most oppressive police states on earth. The people, the slaves on this plantation, are now the enemy.

One can read the entire search warrant application for Alvin Schlangen here.

Raw Milk is legal in Minnesota. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has decided to take a cynical view of the law in which they contend that every single person seeking to purchase raw milk should have to individually drive to far away farms to purchase it. In my opinion, this position derives from a Department of Agriculture that is heavily influenced by the Dairy Cartel. Is this position good for the environment? Why bother forcing us to pay for windmills while you force us to waste so much fuel? Is the government completely insane? Yes, it is.

If you look at the search warrant application, you will see that it is not signed by the officer. This is a violation of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states as follows:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Call your Minnesota representatives and complain about this injustice.

You're absolutely right, Nathan! I think it's ridiculous that the Dept of Agriculture went after the Schlangens.

It clearly shows that the Dairy Cartel has their hands around the balls of the MDA.

Major corporations sell food with synthetic additives, high fructose corn syrup, etc. without the bat of an eye. The FDA approves foods and drugs that contain known toxins. Why should simple farmers be prosecuted for selling their goods?

I think what happened the other day is indicative of a corporatocracy, government run by the corporations.

Wherever there's money to be gained or lost (as in this situation), the corporations bear down on the government and make them do their bidding.

We need people with integrity in political office, not spineless pawns like Mark Dayton.

Mr. Dayton, why don't you grow a pair and stand up for the people?
