 his homes were 'excessive' use of 'military-level' force

Law enforcement militarization in US, anything new?

Diddy or diddy not? That is the question.

Guess he really should have followed through with Hunter’s rap album.

I don’t think those are the charges. If you read the article you’ll see he is under investigations for sex trafficking, rape and sexual assault.

I don’t think the Biden family are personally involved, but you do you.

Hmmm.

When the feds use ”a gross use of military-level force" in a raid against a rap singer, the media are all over it.

But when Biden's feds do the very same thing to a pro-life activist, terrorizing his wife and children in a pre-dawn raid because he did nothing more than peacefully protest in front of an abortion "clinic," the media don't seem terribly interested.

Few media outlets covered this. The left-leaning ones (which comprise the vast majority) certainly didn't:

Biden's feds brought trumped-up charges against that pro-life advocate, by the way. It took a jury about two and a half minutes (relatively speaking) to find him not guilty.

All the video involved in this case clearly showed the man doing nothing even close to illegal.

I wonder if they'll find anything to do with 2pac's murder in there...

Not a fan of "Diddy" but the US has long ago gone overboard in military style raids for even the most minor crimes and harmless suspects. Seems they want to instill fear. Been going on for decades now and not enough is being said about it.

What were they expecting to find sending in a para force?

Looks like he’s going down most likely.

Child trafficking is not a minor crime, nor harmless.

Seems they want to instill fear.

No, they want to catch you when your guard is down, I come from a law enforcement family we have a cop in our family and the best time to come hinges of various factors, mornings or late into the evenings are the optimum time to initiate them, if it’s done in the afternoon, there must be some serious urgency to allow and push for it.

Been going on for decades now and not enough is being said about it.

In all honesty, they really don’t need to, we are on a need to know basis, and I think the most important thing is to eliminate the crime, they don’t need to give us all the pertinent information that could jeopardize a case. Once all the facts are in, then inform me.

Poor Diddy! No such thing as a “witch hunt” lol

It's funny how his private plane went to Antigua, with or without him and nobody knows.

There is no extradition treaty between the USA and Antigua.

Whatever or whomever was on that plane it's not coming back.

What were they expecting to find sending in a para force?

Photos and or videos of very important people doing things they should not have been doing.

They caused destruction and ransacked the properties.

He has been a thug since the 90's,

Innocent until proven guilty however, he has used up all his nine lives.

It is normal in a raid.

like you always post, people are innocent until found guilty.

Not surprised you would think of sex-trafficking as a minor offense.

What has he been charged with?

People are innocent until proven guilty if you like them, like Trump.

Usually, they only send in SWAP teams if they are expecting violent resistance.

Where did I post that? I asked two simple questions. What did the police expect to find? And why was a heavily armed SWAP team needed? I made no mention of any offenses since we don't know what they are until he is charged.

Is P. Diddy another R. Kelly or Gary Glitter?

We'll know very soon.

P-Diddy or Puff-Daddy, went full circle money didn't change his character it only made him think he was bigger than life. The guy is sketchy surrounds himself with such so what do you expect. His wife died mysteriously so did Biggie and the guy who was arrested or tied to the Tu-Pac murder was on his pay roll so go figure. The guy I think was being paid for life to be quiet and he said he will tell all. The entire industry is filthy!

The feds need to listen to and act on the names provided YEARS ago by Corey Feldman and other former child actors.

Personal experience?

Every day, all day, all the time, 24/7 I'll be glad when they all get old enough to get a job and get their grimy hands out of my pockets.

like you always post, people are innocent until found guilty.

I never said he was guilty, but having dealt with some of his entourage and knowing his history over the years, I would not be surprised if he was found guilty.

People are innocent until proven guilty if you like them, like Trump.

Oh, now you say that? ROFL....dear lord....

R Kelly 2.0 but, much much worse. This will be the ugliest, most disgusting story you'll read about in 2024 and going into 2025. That's a pure monster right there.

This is good though. We're about to see how Hollyweird and the LGBTQ community really operate.

Stay tuned for more after a word from our sponsors.

Lock DIDDY up with R. Kelly and Harvey Weinstein, they used their status to harm others the fame got to their heads and they thought they were above the law and untouchable!
