The Department of Homeland Security’s militarized invasion of a small town in Illinois was not in response to a gang of dangerous drug dealers or an armed assailant, but in order to bust a single man accused of downloading indecent images to his home computer.

As we reported last week, federal agents swarmed the town of Livingston, IL., population 850, in an unannounced show of force that culminated in a local school field being used as a staging ground for a phalanx of heavy duty equipment and weaponry.

The school superintendent was given no notice of the feds’ decision to use school land and local residents told news channel KTVI that the sudden sight of armored SWAT vehicles made them nervous.

With authorities initially refusing to explain the reason behind the show of force, it later emerged that a raid had been carried out on a house three miles away in order to apprehend Robert E. Godsey, who is being charged with, “receipt, possession and distribution of visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.”

While nobody is defending Godsey – an obviously sick individual who should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law – questions will undoubtedly swirl as to why the federal government spent so many resources on assembling a small army in order to apprehend one individual who didn’t have a history of violence.
