Perhaps another question might be; is the govt using our tax to break down the rule of law and leave 'government policy' in its place?

spot on, absolutely zero trust and if your in the right (or wrong) neighborhood they are hated for many of the reasons you list not to mention the totally totally corrupt legal system that destroys your life without a second thought

One very rural county i live in i would watch a sheriff patrol unit on graveyard shift that would pass the area i was working and spend a hour up a dirt road that no one lived on beyond where i worked.
Anyone that went up the road would come to a dead end after less then 5 min.

This happened about 3 nights a week and to this day i never found a reason for him to be in that area so many times a week for months at a time.

Of course the lawyers profit more than the criminals they prosecute or defend. LOL.

It's all lawyers, all the way down. Most criminals are guilty of actions deemed "criminal" by legislators, who are 99% lawyers. That's why lawyers exist in the first place, aside from normalizing usury.

The rest is just a massive protection racket, disguised as a Ponzi scheme to make it more palatable.

Not all lawyers are bad, I know two out of about ten I know that are really good people. Not surprisingly, they are the poorest of the ten I know

Of course there are. Some sheep train to be wolves and it's a good thing too, because it's through them that we develop a hint of how to interpret the language of wolves.


But the truth is law -- as a profession, is the codification of master morality; the oldest and truest morality on the planet. Those who serve the law are called slaves and their morality is slave morality. The antithesis of master morality.


Many sheep imagine they are wolves because they are trained to pursue wolf business, but this is an illusion. Patriotism, faith, honor and goodness are the traits they breed for, but do not define them.


When you understand why the teachers of master morality design special tests to determine who is trainable and who is not, then you will understand what you are up against. The fact that some sheep learn to wear the guise of a wolf is irrelevant to the struggle. Reality must be controlled at all costs because nothing is actually true until it is legislated by the masters of the first morality.


From this law, all others follow.

I used to workout at martial art club that had numerous police officers from different police agencies. But even as a juvenile ( I am NOW 57) there were bad police officers that other police knew about. I umpired baseball as youth and later as adult. There are and were a number law enforce officers who umpire. And they tell the same/similar story. That various police agencies knowingly kept very police officers on the book.

It was implied that kept them on the book like in Dirty Harry movies and send after known criminals. For various reason the legal process did not work or there were thing that they did not want the public to know. That would be semi good thing to justify keeping those men.

BUT they were also kept on the books to go after Union organizers, social organizers, those organizing protest and others. That in 99.9% of the time these individuals should be legal protected NOT targeted.

The police officers I know just pulling their weapon out and documenting that action will get them suspend or investigated. Discharging a round under condition will get some officer suspend and investigated while another police officer involved in a lethal shooting that DOES NOT make it to local media will be left on the job with pay. AFTER any shooting making into media the general rules with suspensions with or without pay.

WHY one officer will be fired and another given free ride. to us on the outside is unclear.

I know from few police I have interaction with. During the Dakota Pipe line protests there where Maryland police from different areas and agencies where forced to go there. Some were fired if they did not agree. Most of men I knew would be a good nature humans who I am certain make the best decisions as possible under ugly situations. BUT they knew of men in there same units who were only there to crack skulls.

They tried to explain what nightmare it is to have 10 so police trying to keep control of a large crowd and they knew that there were those in their own group that were going to make the situation even uglier.

I tried out for the Baltimore City police many years ago. I passed all the test but was denied employment. From my understand the Baltimore city police send most of it police force to Israel training.

But a vast majority of people still believe that the Lieutenants and Chiefs and City Manager's Offices are just full of professionalism and integrity, and that they can be trusted.


Not me, crack down from the top down. Every single government employee in every single government position needs to be under fire until they realize it's time for the corruption and nepotism to end. Period.

No more pensions for you.

I live in a small Midwestern town, and up until several years ago the police dressed in regular style gear. Now they all dress tactical style and look like they are on the SWAT team or are in the special forces. Their pistols are hung on their chests in quick draw style and they all have AR-15's in their cruisers. The town is still a quiet peaceful place, nothing like the big cities but there seems to be a total transformation of their image and operating tactics. I don't see this making my town any safer but just with police who are armed and armored to the teeth ready for war. I think a lot of people find it a little disturbing.
