Dear readers, I am a CD warehouse employee and witnessed this yesterday first hand. This was the most absurd example of police destruction I've seen. They were coming in to find bootleg concert dvds, instead their MPAA "expert", who has no idea what a counterfeit is or had a vengeance agenda deemed every blu-ray and dvd in the store counterfeit. They hauled off 8000 pieces of inventory from each store when maybe 30 were suspicious. This is insane! The police destroyed our businesses. We get our inventory from amazon, movie stop, blockbuster, and hundreds of our regular customers. We buy sell trade hundreds of dvd daily, from hundreds of sources. THEY ARE NOT COUNTERFEIT!!! The police are idiots, literally pawns to the MPAA, claiming boxsets, amazon orders, sealed blu-rays to be counterfeit. I went home to my personal collection and every disc I own had this "ifpi" code on the inside ring. Look yourself and all your discs will have this code to. We may never recover from this and will take us a few days just to clean the mess. Please if your a customer, you know our stuff is real and our prices fair and value. Those $5 blurays were old back stock we were selling off, movies like copout and saw III. Are 3-d movies $20 USED, is that crazy? No. I'm not the owner, just a person who feels police had no idea what is real or not so they took it all. We've been honestly serving these communities for almost 20 years.

I agree with "I was there". I frequent this store and EVERYTHING I've purchased there is legit. In the WSB news clip they claim the Blu Rays are counterfeit. Counterfeit Blu Rays DO NOT EXIST! Look it up, google it. You'll read about a few people that have received DVD's instead of Blu Ray's off of ebay, but that's it. I knew exactly what shelf all the $5 Blu Ray's were on. Those were all older titles that you could buy used for around the same price on Amazon. I hope the stores stay open/
