Cerritos, CA, Post-Midnight Friday, Comes a Knock At Someone’s Door

, , , ,

LA Times:

Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies escorted a man believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula to an awaiting car. The man declined to answer questions on his way out and wore a hat and a scarf over his face. He kept his hands in the pockets of a winter coat.

Sheriff’s officials could not be reached by The Times, but department spokesman Steve Whitmore told KNBC News that deputies assisting the federal probation department took Nakoula to the sheriff’s substation in Cerritos for interviewing.

[Updated at 1:40 a.m. July 15, 2012: Whitmore told The Times that Nakoula was taken in for a voluntary interview with probation officials and has not been arrested or detained.]


His many thousands of regular readers undoubtedly recognize that Glenn Reynolds is a harmless and mild-mannered intellectual guy with the classic range of nerdy interests, whose characteristic response to the insanities and outrages he notes in the course of his blogging is a sharp witticism.

Early yesterday evening, the seismic recorders in the neighborhood of Knoxville, Tennessee undoubtedly jumped alarmingly, as Professor Reynolds underwent a highly uncharacteristic meltdown of pure, white hot indignation at the news story above reporting that the obscure individual reputedly associated with the 13:51 “Innocence of Muslims” video had been hauled off for questioning in the middle of the night by a small army of law enforcement officers, acting under what was obviously the most questionable kind of authority in a country with Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech.

WHY BARACK OBAMA SHOULD RESIGN Reynolds furiously labeled his posting, which has been accreating additional commentary and bitter humor all day.

Example: Paul Crabtree writes: “Although the midnight raid to punish free speech is beyond deplorable, I guess we should be relieved that the Nobel Prize winner didn’t order a drone strike on his house.” Heh. We probably don’t have to worry about those . . . in the first term.

Glenn Reynolds & his associates instantly correctly penetrated the official malarkey. Under American law, there is no possible crime anyone could be charged with for creating and publishing a video satirizing Islam. Bassley Nakoula was dragged out of his home in the middle of the night by the local Los Angeles branch of the Gestapo for embarrassing the regime.

No Man

No freedom? No peace.

It’s past time to comply with the totalitarian regime. It’s time for people to treat the regime as it is: illegitimate. Act as did the enslaved people of the soviet empire and they shut it down.


As I recall the Gestapo conducted a lot of “voluntary interviews” with people they found troublesome — with the same objective of intimidation.


Yes… the administration can send a clear message… when it’s OK to thumb your nose at the USA, and when you’re stepping out of line and best watch out.

As a Catholic, I’m hearing a message too… from our own free press: Catholics apparently should storm the US Embassy in Vatican City to renounce the attacks on Catholics in the US media and government. Recall the long history such as brought to us by the Genius Robert Maplethorpe with his exhibit which i shall not honor by name, of the crucifix of Christ in a jar of urine termed “art”, to the current series of the network FX show “American Horror Story: Asylum” where the fictional character Sr. Jude, played by Jessica Lange, is a sadistic nun who beats inmates in a Massachusetts asylum. Sr. Jude, who likes to wear red lingerie beneath her full habit, lusts after Msgr. O’Hara, who also has dark intentions. Inmates include a nymphomaniac, a lesbian, a degenerate bully….

Surely that is the message, isn’t it? NPR and all the enlighten media seem to be laying the blood of American diplomats and soldiers at the door of freedom of speech while failing to hold the murderous thugs on scene responsible.

Catholics… one of the last safe targets in an oh, so tolerant world.
