A helicopter hovered above the ground, a squadron of highly trained men erupted from the chopper. Armed to the teeth, the men raided the fortress of MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom searching for the file sharing kingpin
Officials raided the mansion, invading room after room searching for firearms and bombs and other threats that may pose themselves. According to popular site TorrentFreak, police moved upstairs to find the notorious site owner, destroying a dumb waiter in the process, thinking he was hiding inside.
Dotcom's bodyguard later revealed that Kim had been hiding in the mansion panic room referred to as the "red room". When asked if the invasion was overkill, Dotcom's bodyguard explained to 3 news that if only a few police officers had shown up rather than a whole task force:
“He would have complied with everything, we would have sat at the large table, he would’ve probably offered them breakfast and he would have complied with everything”.
These accusations that Dotcom and his staff are facing, although serious, are a bit dwarfed by the overkill actions by authorities. The aforementioned squadron is an elite terrorist task force and Dotcom has never been charged or accused of terrorism. Some media and other news platforms are a little puzzled as to why the authorities used such tactics, but nevertheless, the crimes faced by Dotcom are indeed serious and if found guilty or not, justice will be served.
