Kim Dotcom Raid Footage

Earlier this week you may have heard Kim Dotcom describe the raid on his mansion as excessive. While that sounds like something a defendant might say, watching this news report out of New Zealand featuring footage from the raid will help you come to the same conclusion.

Watching law enforcement enter into the compound of the mansion with police dogs, helicopters and dozens of agents might make you think that Osama Bin Laden was still alive and under siege in a swank New Zealand mansion… Watch the video and judge for yourselves.

    And just to think if the US passed sane IP law that focused on revenue generation they could export treaties much easier thus make things much easier and faster to take down sites that make an illsiclt profit. By going after distribution alone you are expanding the totalitarian IP empire.

    An embarrassing waste of money and resources were used to catch a obese man who would likely gone into cardiac arrest just running down his driveway. Serious overkill here in that video.

    I hope they justified this overkill as a training op under light risk circumstances or something more reasonable like that.

    Has it really taken this long for other countries to see this footage? Surprising, I'd have figured this episode of Campbell Live (for anyone who doesn't know, it's a NZ current affairs programme) would've been uploaded much, much sooner.

    In any case, my thoughts haven't changed when I originally watched it last year: This was never a NZ issue. NZ police should never have been involved and NZ taxpayer money should never have been spent pursuing a man that is not our problem. Ultimately, the NZ police were being Americas bitch.

    Even if he was our problem the force the police exercised was absolute crap considering the nature of the man and the crime itself. Kim Dotcom isn't a bloody murderer, yet that's exactly how the law likes to treat supposed IT-related criminals.
