Dozens of federal agents scoured the family property of YouTube

quatchi: The ATF suspected Kyle Myers, the iconic 26-year-old host of FPSRussia, of using explosives "with malicious intent,"

Blowing up shiat purely for the lulz is the new definition of "malicious" now? Oh, ffs.

I would suggest that Kyle's explosion vids are the least malicious explosions of all time.

/Of all time!

I have been informed numerous times on Fark that firearms and explosions cannot be used for entertainment value, as they are designed to kill. Based on that, I'm afraid that I must agree with the BATF here, and ignore the 4 million subscribers to that channel. I must further conclude that FPSRussia has a very, very small penis.

Snapper Carr: cman: I am gonna wait for the "Better safe than sorry" portion of the Right to come out and defend ATF actions

Actually the ATF is one of the few agencies that both the left and the right generally agree should be taken out to the country and allowed to spend the rest of their days living comfortably on a nice farm with grass and lots of space to run around and stuff.

Lionel Mandrake: But I think it's safe to avoid jumping to conclusions.

You're the one jumping to conclusions.

The ATF is a horrible agency and they've been the lynchpin in every boondoggle from the St Valentine's Day Massacre up through Waco and the retaliatory Oklahoma City Bombing all the way on though to Operation: Help Mexican Criminals Kill Border Patrol Agents

Their track record speaks for itself. It's jumping to any conclusions to assume they are in violation of SOP and the Constitution, because they usually are.

Lionel Mandrake: doglover: Do you not see where it's the ATF?

I don't see where that justifies jumping to conclusions.

So when the perpetual fark up agency is perpetually farking up and something they're doing yet again goes wrong you don't think it's safe to logically assume this is yet another go round in a well know cycle of fark ups and instead have infinite faith that this time it's not their fault and they did a good job for once?

Man, I wish I was you. Every morning when the sun comes again up must blow your freakin' mind.

For the rest of us:

In May 2008, William Newell, Special Agent in charge of the Phoenix ATF Office, said: "When 90 percent-plus of the firearms recovered from these violent drug cartels are from a U.S. source, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to stem the illegal flow of these firearms to these thugs."[27] According to the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General, "ATF told the OIG that the 90-percent figure ... could be misleading because it applied only to the small portion of Mexican crime guns that are traced."[28] Under Operations "Fast and Furious", "Too Hot to Handle", and "Wide Receiver", indictments show that the Phoenix ATF Office, over protests from the gun dealers and some ATF agents involved and without notifying Mexican authorities, facilitated the sale of over 2,500 firearms (AK-47 rifles, FN 5.7mm pistols, AK-47 pistols, and .50 caliber rifles) to traffickers destined for Mexico.[29][30][31][32][33] Many of these same guns are being recovered from crime scenes in Arizona[34] and throughout Mexico,[35] which is artificially inflating ATF's eTrace statistics of U.S. origin guns seized in Mexico. One gun is alleged to be the weapon used by a Mexican national to murder Customs and Border Protection Agent Brian Terry on December 14, 2010.

cameroncrazy1984: Oh, so he can't say it's Tannerite if it's really TNT, right? That's like, impossible to do!

He's sponsored by a company that sells Tannerite.  He has a video where he does a tour of the facility where they make the Tannerite he uses in his videos.  He shows himself setting up the Tannerite.

Why, when he's getting free Tannerite and money for using Tannerite, would he instead spend money (thus digging into his monetized YouTube account profits) to use TNT?

It's almost as if you have no idea WTF you are talking about.

Lionel Mandrake: Crocodilly_Pontifex: Corvus: So now people in this thread believe that we can't regulate explosives anymore?

That everything is a "second amendment right"? A tank, an RPG and a nuke is ok too.

Sorry guys we have munition laws on explosives we always have.

you must have missed the part where a government agency raided a guys property looking for illegal stuff and couldn't find any. Then you must have also missed the part where, because he videotapes shiat blowing up, they want him to get a manufacture license.

cause if you missed that, what oyu said would be totally legit.

Do you get pissed off when a Doctor orders an X-ray and then doesn't find anything?

If the Doctor came to my house and forced me to get an x-ray... Yeah, I'd be pretty pissed.

Basically, the ATF has repeatedly demonstrated their incompetence and their willingness to do whatever the fark they want.  That bothers me.

Corvus: I have a question for everyone. If someone posted a video that showed a group robbing a store (and it looked like it was real), do you think police should investigate those people? Should they check their house to see if they really stole the stuff in the video?

I bet almost everyone here would say yes. But because this is something some people in this thread identify themselves with they are blind to see it's the same thing.

So you DO think that the police should raid Freddie Wong next, then.

It's also impossible to have any other kind of explosive when you possess Tannerite. Literally impossible. That's just science.

Lenny_da_Hog: cameroncrazy1984: How did they know it was legal prior to investigating?

Because he identifies what he's doing in each of his videos -- for example, "AK-47 + Tannerite!"

And people always tell the truth on the internet.

Hammer & sickle tee. A kalishnikov.
Why did Obama send the ATF to raid one of his socialist buddies?
There must be more layers to this; layers like unto those upon the 'birth certificate'. I must study this out more.

I'd be worried if they weren't looking into guys like that.

Because ATF should totally kick in everyone's door to look in on them just to be sure.

Baseless no-knock raids are okay when they happen to people I don't like.

You guys sound so oppressed.  How can you live in this Stalinist Hellhole?
