    FPS Russia raided

    You know the guy on youtube that makes such videos as


    Dozens of federal agents scoured the family property of YouTube celebrity Kyle ‘FPSRussia’ Myers while searching for illegal explosives and possibly weapons, but left empty-handed.

    The noise made by popular YouTube channel FPSRussia – famous for destroying man-made mechanisms with the most advanced firearms – has finally been heard in federal quarters. On Wednesday, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agents accompanied by FBI agents launched an operation at two locations in Georgia, looking for illegal explosives allegedly used by FPSRussia to produce its YouTube clips.

    The ATF suspected Kyle Myers, the iconic 26-year-old host of FPSRussia, of using explosives “with malicious intent,” Onlineathens.com quoted ATF spokesperson Richard Coes as saying. Coes cited the cars, fridges and other objects that were regularly blown up on Myers’ channel.

    With nearly 4 million subscribers, FPSRussia is one of the most popular YouTube channels, and is dedicated solely to guns and shooting – and explosions. In the channel’s videos, Myers speaks with a strong Russian ‘accent’ and demonstrates the use of exotic modern and vintage weapons, or anything else that can be shot, be it a WWII Soviet submachine gun, a 50-calibur sniper rifle, a flying drone, a rocket launcher, a tank or a cannon – practically any weapon that’s still functional.

    I ****ing hope the family sues the ATF and FBI into oblivion. This was nothing but a setup in an attempt to infringe on the family's 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. And people wonder why I think every citizen should be armed to the teeth with every weapon the government itself, has at its disposal.

    So they raided his home and found nothing. Bunch of douche nozzles.

All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    Apparently it's because Keith Richard Ratliff who died from a shot to the head. He was the executive producer of fps's channel and co-owner of his families gun producer. So they thought that he had something to do with it.

    Dunno i just clicked the link and read more
    The raids on the Myers’ properties were staged as part of an investigation into the death of 32-year-old Keith Richard Ratliff, who was found dead on January 3. Ratliff and the Myers family were co-owners of gun producer FPS Industries; Ratliff was also executive producer of the FPSRussia channel, acquiring or creating rare weapons for the show.

    Ratliff was killed by a single bullet to the head. Though a large number of firearms were found at Ratliff’s business premises, the murder weapon was not among them. The investigation continues, and so far no names of possible suspects or persons of interest have been revealed.
