They already have firearms, and nightsticks, so I'm not too concerned about Tazers, Pepper Spray, and Flashlights. I've never found myself in a
situation where I was on the receiving end of any police hardware, and a good defense against being "brutalized," is the phrase yes sir/ma'am.
You'd be surprise at how much less drama you undergo by utilizing that simple phrase. You may also want to refer to Dave Chappelle's instructional
The day I as an American have to say " YASSUH, MASTER POLICEMAN " will be one cold day in hell. They are our SERVANTS, and they should not be put
on a pedastle. Do you say Yassuh and Nosuh to everyone who collects a paycheck from your taxes? If so, good for you. If not then welcome to the real
world, where bowing and scraping and putting on a dog and pony act on the side of the road for some cop is not required for us to get our rights
I suppose we could genuflect and bow as well, that would really get them to give us a break and not abuse our rights, is that what we are supposed
to do? Where does it stop? With a citizen begging for his very life while a machine gun toting thug with a badge and a snarling dog have him sweat on
hot pavement for a while face down? We have seen that all over the world, in OTHER facist dictatorships, like OURS.
Bush has overruled the very Constitution and rule of law so many times it boggles the mind.He and his gang, and believe me I know none of the others
are any better, but Bush and Cheney have set new heights in treason, murder, intrigue for profit, and many more high crimes too numerous to list here.
He can take over with a stroke of his pen, and that is a dictatorship by any definition.
When a congress and senate are totally ineffectual and useless, there is in fact not a democratic way to get due process and that means slavery in
fact if not in kind. You may be walking around, but you are not free; that is the illusion that the government projects so we will be good little
citizens and place our hands in the yellow circles, wait, that was a movie..right? Or is it real now? No way to tell until it has you laying down and
praying for the luck to live to get a lawyer; soon that may be a thing of the past as well; the military commissions act could be extended to civilian
law and we would get no rights unless they choose to give them to us!!
So, I will continue to snarl and snap back at the dogs, whether two or four legged, to let them know that we are not all cowed and begging, there
are still a few of us willing to stand toe to toe and not assume they are better than us, in any way. Let them know that if they want to go fishing,
they should get their own boat and tackle and bait and trailer and gas...and not expect the citizens to provide not only the means for them to puff up
their petty arrests records, but to give up any 4th and 1st amendment rights as well by giving consent to a search without a warrant.
Cop's today are trained in the very acadamies to lie, cheat the law and pervert the legal system to get easy arrests. That is a fact. The typical
cop knows various ways to ask questions that have two possible answers, thereby giving the cop an out no matter which way the citizen answers. Here is
the common one:
" You don't have any drugs or guns in you car, do you? If not, you wouldn't mind me taking a quick look, would you? "
Look at that set of two questions asked in a row. If the citizen says NO to the part about not having any guns or drugs ion the car, the cop will
search and later say he had consent because he thought that the citizen meant that he was actually answering the LAST question, which was not minding
if he took a look. If the citizen says YES to the part about MINDING if the cop takes a look, the cop will search and later say that he had consent
because he thought that the citizen was saying YES to the part about having guns or drugs, thus confessing to possession, which would be enough
probable cause for a warrantless search.
See how dirty and low down they are? They will use trickery and deceit to get the citizen, the person they serve , to give consent whether willingly
or not. They want consent at any cost because without it they lose the case and get embarrassed, but they have still wrecked someones life
substantially in the process, the dirty dogs.
If they can later convince a judge that they were ' sincerely convinced ' that the consent was given freely, the citizen loses. It seems that
unless some cop twists your arm and puts a gun to your head to sign a consent form a court will call it legal. That is why it is SO terribly important
to NEVER, EVER , under any circumstances, answer ANY question put to you by any cop. Tell them that your attorney has instructed you to remain silent,
and to call him if cops have any problems. That is the ONLY way to stay safe from the collusion and immoral practices that todays cops use to coerce
consent for an easy search, hoping for an easy bust.
It is just like fishing, but the cops are climbing into your boat, taking the rod from your hands, drinking your beer from your cooler, and with a
gun on their hip, unless you take a stand pretty soon you will find yourself thrown overboard: No one needs dead weight, and thats all that cowards
are. Thug cops do not respect weakness , only force directed back at them, whether legal or actual.
While you are doffing your hat and getting ready to perform seppuku if you offend the glorious coppers by not being ' polite ' enough, I will be
taking them to task and demanding professionalism and conduct that does not offend.Asking a citizen to give up their precious Constitutional rights so
some cop can toss a hundred cars a day and get 10 easy busts and a raise and a few headlines is NOT what I call a legitimate use of our servants time.
They do not need to be looking thru our drawers, but dusting and cooking and keeping their noses out of our business.
Let the servants say Yassuh and Nossuh , not the masters. I can see which category you are suited for, and I am sure that you will make an obediant
and slavish devotee of the cop's, until they cannot use you anymore and then you will see what lies beneath the mask. It is not pretty.
