WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 3, 2019 - It has been nearly two years since reports were published on the dangers of creating a law enforcement run Mental Health Assessment (MHA) program. In Texas, terrorist pig thug cops now use MHAs to screen every person they have arrested for mental illness.
But the TAPS Act, first introduced in January, would take law enforcement screenings to a whole new level. It would create a national threat assessment of children and adults.
In the course of six months, the Threat Assessment, Prevention and Safety (TAPS) Act - H.R. 838 - has seen support grow to nearly 80 Members of Congress.
Politicians are master manipulators. What better way to garner public support for a national threat assessment program than to introduce it during National Police Week?
Taken at face value, the TAPS Act sounds like a noble attempt to stop school shootings but not all is as it seems.
The TAPS Act would encourage law enforcement to give everyone a personal threat assessment (children and adults) and single out those that they deem as future threats.
The TAPS Act has all the earmarks of a paranoid police state that considers everyone a potential threat. It will create a “Joint Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management Task Force to identify individuals that exhibit patterns of dangerous behavior that may precede an act of targeted violence.”
According to Senators Marco Rubio (Fla.), Kyrsten Sinemea (Ariz.) and Thom Tillis (N.C.), the TAPS Act will create a national behavioral threat assessment and management process for everyone.
Bills like this mean the Fascist Police States of Amerika has joined paranoid governments like China and Switzerland who consider children to be potential threats.
Didn’t we learn anything from incarcerating Japanese Amerikans and the war against Communism?
The never-ending War on Terror and the National Threat Assessment program should not be used as an excuse to destroy our Bill of Rights.
