The police are the sole of the jackboot of Government. “But what was supposed to be a day of fun at an end-of-summer festival ended abruptly when police shot Grose with a Taser in a dispute about where to end the parade route.”
There is some sort of end of summer parade every year in Glenrock, WY. So some old guy was driving his antique tractor through the parade. The parade always used to follow one route, but for some reason this year the police wanted to change the route and end it sooner. The elderly tractor driver had different ideas and one thing lead to another. Cops being cops with the insatiable appetite to exert their Authoratay couldn’t let an old man get away with something so they tasered this 76 year old retiree.
Luckily the community did the right thing. “The incident nearly incited a riot as outraged neighbors rushed to his defense. Now residents of this tight-knit town of 2,400 are seething over what they see as police brutality, and town officials are scrambling to ease the tension.”
If things like this keep happening, that is rightly or wrongly, people perceiving that the police, those that are paid with our tax dollars, money coming out of our families mouths, are abusive to citizens cops will find themselves in greater danger. That’s the breaks. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
Then there is another hicktown in Arkansas where the police have been running amuck. The town of Jericho, Arkansas has 174 residents and seven cops. Apparently the cops like to give out tickets because it helps them to bloat the size of the force. Everyone seems to agree that the fire chief was in court to contest a ticket and the town’s seven cops were at the hearing some sort of scuffle broke out and the fire chief was shot in the back.
“JERICHO, Ark. – It was just too much, having to return to court twice on the same day to contest yet another traffic tick et, and Fire Chief Don Payne didn’t hesitate to tell the judge what he thought of the police an d their speed traps. The response from cops? They shot him. Right there in court.“
I guess that’s the breaks. What do you expect. The police are your enemies. And if you are a minority you better watch your back and what neighborhoods you dare to walk through.
Just one more before I go. So this guy was driving and got stopped by the police for suspicion of drunk driving. They gave him a breathalyzer and he passed. He was below the legal limit. The cop didn’t like the result so they took this ostensibly “free” citizen to the hospital where they proceeded to chain him down to a gurney and forced a catheter up his Willie Wonka. Pause. Think. Let it sink in.
“A Breathalyzer test showed Lockard was under the legal limit, but Officer Brian Miller doubted the findings. Lockard’s attorney said his client was shackled to a gurney and had a catheter inserted against his will.”
Got that the police stopped an innocent citizen from free travel took him to the hospital, tied him down and catheterized him in order to force him to give evidence against himself. There are so many consitutional violations here that I hope the victim files a s. 1983 claim and bankrupts the community. So much for the presumption of innocence aye? Have no fear I’m sure that the police department’s IA division will investigate and find no violations by the cop in question.
Imagine the police tying down your grandma, mother, wife, daughter or sister to a gurney and forcibly catheterizing her. Stop. Pause. Think about that.
WE NEED TO START HOLDING COPS ACCOUNTABLE!!!
So don’t ever forget that the police are your enemies. They will ask you questions and use your answers against you in a court of law. They will try to trick you like carnies on the midway. They will seize your possessions given the chance too. If you are a minority you already understand that.
Lesson is to interact as little as possible with the men in blue. Any interaction with the police is likely to turn out badly. Avoid them like the swine flu. They want a reason to interpose themselves in your life. They like nothing better than to get involved with you. That’s why they hide there on the side of the road behind bushes and bridges, like miscreants, waiting to spring out, seize you and keep you from going peacefully about your business. Given the opportunity that police salivate over they will take you out of your car, beat you, lock you up and seize your property. It’s what they want. It’s why they do what they do.
Be careful out there.
BTW do yourself a favor and look at my post about purslane. It’s a wild edible that grows everywhere, even in cities.
