After the raid, Troy leapt into action with his video camera to interview people who were protesting outside Rawesome Foods, including Mariel Hemingway (www.marielhemingway.com) , one of the most outspoken celebrity supporters of healthy living and wholesome foods.
"I saw FDA, FBI, California Dept. of Agriculture, come in and just pillage and rape all of our product here at Rawesome today. They started around 7:00 banging on the doors, saying 'police' and threw a search warrant out, they came after James Stewart, they did not read him his rights."
"Regardless of legalities, people need to eat health food. If it's illegal to eat food that's healthy, then we're all criminals. And I would prefer to continue eating healthy food regardless of what anyone tells me."
"People need to know what's going on with their food. They need to know what good food is. People have lost track. We live in a fast food society, and they've lost track of what actually feeds the body and feeds the mind and spirit. If more people knew what was good for them and that our rights are being taken away... because as Americans, it's our right to eat whatever we want!"
"They were just pouring down the drain milk after milk after milk. We generally get about 400 to 800 gallons of milk a week for the community. It was very surreal because right next to us is a homeless shelter, and people are in awe and dismay because here we are in a police state. That's what's happening. We are over-policed."
"We have a country that's so in debt, I mean trillions of dollars in debt. And we have all these problems. The economy is so messed up and they spend time raiding a raw store, where people are part of a club, in a society where they have much bigger problems than this. Really? You're gonna spend our taxpayer dollars raiding a raw store? It's so absurd!"
"In total it looks like they took thirty to fifty thousand dollars worth of food. They backed up a 20-foot truck with a flatbed, and they filled it up with food. It was full when they left here, and you could see watermelons, coconuts, fresh produce that James had just bought this morning. They took it away. That truck was FULL. And when we came back in, they had double padlocked all the locks, and everything was bare."
