“We might have to bring back the troops to save us from the police!”
An alarming trend has happened right under our very noses to the current police forces across the nation .
They’re expected to “protect and serve” and they have seemingly changed that to :”Shoot to kill and ask questions later.”
The pictures in the media of a military like police presence in many cities is alarming. These cops don’t look like cops they look like professional soldiers.
And many of them are ex military taught to kill kill kill.
THEIR WEAPONS ARE MILITARY..THEIR TRANSPORTATION IS MORE MILITARY AND S.W.A.T TEAMS WEAR MILITARY TYPE UNIFORMS.
The amount of sheer firepower now accorded S.W.A.T teams is incredible.We mean that they have tanks for God’s sake!
Who’s policing the police?…incidents of overreaction and even rape are increasing.
In the hands of a fairly Liberal national government this is ultimately dangerous…in the hands of some future elected right wing freaks like Ted Cruz or Chris Chris and the maniac gang it could be catastrophic for DEMOCRACY.
To some of us cops now seem to be on the side of the corporations in the public demonstration game.
The recent WAL-MART arrests come to mind.
Arresting peaceful protesters is just not America.
Indiscriminate tazing of innocent minorities and even handicapped and retarded people is on the rise.
Koch Brother’s protege Scott Walker regionally usurps his power in Wisconsin and on a regular basis. Walker uses his State House police to arrest people singing freedom songs in the halls…what a simpering trumped-up little dictator wanna be!.
And we thought those singers were attending an American Idol audition!
BUT SERIOUSLY…when police become “subliminally politicized” we face the chance of internal rogue Nazi style Waffen SS brigades following “imaginary doctrines” that they feel are covered legally by their interpretations of the law.
THEY ARE NOT THERE TO ENFORCE THE LAW…Only judges do that!
It appears this attitude is already happening as there are more and more incidents everywhere of innocent people being shot down in cold blood by trigger happy police.This plus overkill reactions to hostage situations.
A recent overreaction example?… The gunning down of a 13-year-old kid with a toy gun by an officer who pumped multiple bullets int the kid.
If angry uptight men are giving weapons of mass destruction and let loose on the population without the checks and balances beyond what the present norm is, we’re in for a shit storm of violence from the very people who we want to make us feel safe.
I for one don’t feel as “safe” as I used to when a cop’s red light asks me to pull over….how about you?
