  1. Rebekah Jones a State and National Hero. Truth Justice and the American Way

  2. Not only was this the first warrant this judge had signed, he was appointed by DeSantis. Also odd a civil court judge would be signing a criminal case warrant. Should file a complaint with the Florida bar about him as well.

      @woowooNeedsFaith we make out own karma,

    • @woowooNeedsFaith Do you even understand the meaning of the word? Karma – good or bad luck is the result of one’s actions. So, Karma does eventually catch up with one’s good or bad deeds. Next you will be saying you have never said “good luck” to anyone because it is supernatural BS.🤷🏻‍♀️

    • He should be sued directly.

    • @woowooNeedsFaith and that’s the thing isn’t it? people believe a lot of things but just because you believe a thing does not always mean that thing you believe is true

    • @BlackHat 420 well said!

  3. Good on her. Take them to the cleaners!!!

  4. Please lay the ground work so covid victims and their families can sue Florida into oblivion

  5. She is a hero and I hope she eviscerates them in court

    She’s been sounding the alarm since the beginning! YOU GO GUUURL! Rebecca Jones is a true Patriot!

  7. Rebekah would be a good candidate for the American Medal of Freedom from the new president.

  8. Rebekah Jones is a hero, and deserves to win her lawsuit.

  9. I hope her law suit makes her a very wealthy woman.

  10. She needs to sue and win it is corrupt republicans at their worse stand behind her America donate to her legal fund fight back don’t be silent

  11. I’m so glad she’s able to fight back, I truly hope she doesn’t face any more blowback or danger due to speaking out.

      Speaking out is the only thing that will keep her safe. Being in the media’s eye makes it harder for the government to do anything to her

    • @Smileyrie.yeppoon You are right. These idiots can’t think 1 step ahead in checkers. The raid just exposed the thugs for what they are. And made Rebekah an even bigger hero. Lots who were unaware of the story, now do.

    • @Smileyrie.yeppoon Not really. They could make her disappear, prevent any news on it, and you’ll forget about it in time because of other scandals getting your attention. I hope that doesn’t happen. I do want to see those fascists burn for what they pulled.

  12. This is unbelievable! Disgusting! Facism defined

  13. A little Gestapo-esque raiding the house like that.

    • This is a glimpse of a republican future. Not sure how much more evidence people need. These people are straight up fascists.

    • A LITTLE???? How about a total invasion of privacy with a warrant generated by a State fabricated lie. This is Nazi Germany all over again. What is wrong with Floridians in supporting these GOP criminal?

    • A little?? Good job she and her family are white. I dread to think what might have happened. That shouldn’t even be a part of this conversation, but unfortunately, we all know it is true. Stay safe.

      A little Gestapo-esque?

      They’re totally like Gestapo. The only difference is they’re restrained by “residual integrity” in the system.

  14. Fascists run too much of your country now, that’s just the sad truth.

  15. They have only succeeded in bring more attention to the truth.

    Wishing this brave lady smoother sailing, and a big win with her lawsuit.

    • She’s a liar , notice this story goes nowhere other than the media … weird

    • @Jim Tapa 😭🖕

    • @Jim Tapa It has gone to court, for damages. It should go to whatever passes for a non-partisan special counsel in Florida. DeSantis trashed the state and she has been calling him on it. DeSantis is a thug.

      @Pretty Fly for a WiFi Give your definition of racism!! so u think cops should be above the law. We had one unarmed black woman, a nurse filled with 5 police bullets in a dawn house raid, Bryony Taylor.

    • Edward Cassidy | December 23, 2020 at 6:02 PM | Reply

      @Jim Tapa oh of course Einstein unlike the Orangutan’s legal cases to overturn his massive defeat

  17. Acting like how a dictator would treat its civilians! Ms. Jones is a hero!

  18. I hope she voted for Biden and not fatboy trump. We know he’s behind this false raid….

      He might be but I doubt it. He’s not that smart. People give Trump too much credit. The fact that he has to go around and advertise on a soap box that “Nobody knows more about [insert subject here] than me” on a constant basis and that he is “Like, a very smart person” and that he has a very big brain, the fact he has to tell you this is to convince you of something that’s not true.

  19. Her only crime was Speaking Truth under republican rule.

    • Republican equals Dictatorship
      under the Trump administration
      The Governor on down who authorized or looked the other way and let this happen
      Should be charged with at the very least , Crimes against the Constitution And abuse of power
      for starters

  20. Gestapo tactics dictated by Donald Trump, followed by De Santis.
