SWAT Team Raids a Peaceful Protest at Texas Bar Despite the Governor Saying “All Businesses are Essential”

Nice jackboots ya got there, Sheriff.

The Ector County Sheriff Department sent its SWAT team and an armoured personnel carrier to arrest the owner of Big Daddy Zane’s, a bar in West Odessa, Texas, that opened up to protest Gov. Greg Abbott’s lockdown order.

Gabrielle Ellison, the owner of the bar, told Fox 44 that her business is “not going to make it”:

“We can’t take it no more, we’re not going to make it,” said Ellison. “I am aware of what’s going on down the road. I am shocked. I had customers come through saying, ‘You know they have SWAT built up, they have SWAT built up.’ Why would you bring in SWAT on a peaceful situation?”

Ellison says the risk of staying closed outweighs the risk of any virus. Even if it means potentially getting in trouble with law enforcement.

“The possibility of losing my license – heartbreaking. But they’ve already taken my income,” said Ellison.


This is a prime example of the trampling of civil liberties and abuse of the color of the law.

Every single person who was unjustly harassed and detained in violation of the 1st and 4th Amendments should file lawsuits against their respective police departments. Enough is enough.
