Maybe his comment was little excessive but I know more than a few people who share the sentiment. There is a pervasive belief in the United States that law enforcement has grown too zealous at enforcing increasingly arbitrary laws. Billy Beck's famous quote is sounding more-and-more like a prophecy.
Cooper said that he was told that without “defusing the situation” by complying with the interview, his house might have been raided.
That may have just bravado an posturing from the Feebs. On the other hand, the government does have the power to make a person disappear.
The irony of the situation is that Cooper’s concerns of the USA becoming a police state were actually validated by the fact that the federal government launched an investigation over his frustrated Facebook comment, showing up with detailed records on his family and their internet activity.Irony indeed.
