This is just going to get worse before it gets better. And I’d like to find some investigative report on this.

A multi-agency SWAT-style armed raid was conducted this morning by helmet-wearing, gun-carrying enforcement agents from the LA County Sheriff’s Office, the FDA, the Dept. of Agriculture and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). Rawesome Foods, a private buying club offering wholesome, natural raw milk and raw cheese products (among other wholesome foods) is founded by James Stewart, a pioneer in bringing wholesome raw foods directly to consumers through a buying club. James was followed from his private residence by law enforcement, and when he entered his store, the raid was launched.

Law enforcement demanded that all customers (members) of the store vacate the premises, then they demanded to know how much cash James had at the store. When James explained the amount of cash he had at the store — which is used to purchase product for selling there — agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.
James was handcuffed, was NEVER read his rights and was stuffed into an UNMARKED car.

    #32, farmer providing raw milk to the public

    He was not.

    He was supplying it to private members of his club, who paid to become members of the club, and who understood the risks.


    Again, Nanny State.

    If people want to consume it, that is their business. If they poison someone, send them to jail.

    How do restaurants get away with serving steak that is rare? I think this falls under the same category.


    But this has nothing to do with that. It has everything to do with taxes. I suspect he wasn’t paying them . . .

    agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.

    Law enforcement has demanded that if he comes up with the money to cover bail, he must disclose to them all the sources of that money.

    Get off your horse and drink your milk!

    This will have more to do with tax than health which doesn’t make it any better in my eyes, government crackdown coming to a town like yours?

    I agree with the need to get rid of SWAT teams and I don’t see why cops can’t just be cops, like the old days, and walk up to someone with a warrant. The militarization of the police (wanna be combat soljuhs) on us civilians, is just a big joke by the cops on all the rest of us.

    That saying, you should also check out this link:


    I’m not sure what site is about and who originated it but the PDF gives a far different perspective. It would appear that this raw-food farm is a scam. Have a good read. Very interesting.

    But I still don’t agree with the military tactics.
