The reason they do not alter the packages in any way and then deliver them to you in person is that if you accept them and confirm they are yours then you are admitting ownership and culpability of anything in them.  That's why they searched them afterward in your presence.  That way the person can't claim that it was shipped to the wrong address or whatever (i.e. some criminals ship packages to vacant houses or houses where they know no one is home all day and then take them off the porch after delivery). They bust people shipping drugs that way.

I get lots of toys from Hong Kong so I'm probably on some list somewhere...

Oddly, they don't mention the whole package issue.

Sorry about all that, Raymond.  How odd.  Glad there was nothing more serious that happened.  You know, if you had innocently reached for something before you knew they were armed, and they had shot you or something. 

There was a story here about some local police that went to serve an arrest warrant or something, went to the wrong house, threw the wrong guy on the ground, his dog saw his master getting manhandled, ran out and they shot his dog.  Then they realized they had the wrong address, wrong house, and left him with a dead dog and no apology.  Indeed, we live in a police state.  Of course, it's all "to keep us safe"....   ::)

Bobby, when they asked if they could open the boxes, my dad and I said "sure."  We thought they wanted us to open the boxes.  So I walked over to grab a box cutter off a table and my dad reached for a kitchen knife.  Luckily, we did not get shot.  The head agent said, "No, that's OK, we'll open it."  Then he pulled out a knife and cut the tape.  A moment just like that could easily have turned out very differently.

Yep, a box cutter is what turned our whole country into a police state to begin with....  those are like the most powerful weapon in history.

Was that story reported in the press, or just a story going around? Killing somebody's dog is a $millions lawsuit in the hands of even an articling law student.

The FBI are nothing more than domestic terrorists these days. I'd never have spoken one word to them without  my lawyer present.

After reading this story, it’s obvious that the FBI are the real “monsters!”
