Image via YouTube Tim Pool, host of the popular podcast “Timcast,” was in the middle of a broadcast on Thursday night when police raided his studio because they received a false call that reported a gunman was on the premises threatening to kill others and himself.
Cameras were rolling as the event happened, and the show went on despite the interruption by police. Pool was unnerved by the fact that police entered his property without a warrant. “I’m extremely unhappy with this,” he said. “I do not like cops coming into my house when we have mats all over the place that say ‘come back with a warrant.’”
Pool said police were apologetic but said they had received a call that two people had been shot and killed and the gunman was threatening to kill others. “I don’t want to drag them or be mean to them because they were polite but I’m not happy with the idea that they are walking into the studio while we are live; they’re walking around.”
Pool said the police told him they were going to do a sweep of his property and he asked them to come back with a warrant. He also revealed that whoever answered the door denied the police entry but the police entered anyway. One of Pool’s guests, Brandon Tatum , is a former police officer and suggested that Pool should develop a relationship with the police so that this does not happen again. Tatum was excellent in explaining how exigent circumstances work and acting as a cool head in a tense time. Pool did report that when he asked the officers to leave they did so after a quick check of the premises.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
