The cops aren't a buffer from anything threatening me or anyone else in 90% of the calls made, in reality they have become the reason for the crime
in the first place.
Drugs have little value without the war on drugs, particularly rotten drugs that only harm people...
Figures run between 18% and 30% of our nations inmates being there for drug offenses alone...
Add in all the rest now, minor crimes of property, misdemeanor theft, dui's, non injury domestic disputes, traffic violations, unpaid fines, simple
altercations, unintentional or non malicious trespass
What you will see is that in a world of insurance and people sometimes screwing up, something to the extent of 2/3rds of our 9-11 calls and 2/3rds of
our in mates were no clear threat to human well being or to society
Meanwhile the courts and the police are bogged down chasing things that Change Absolutely Nothing
In act, i'd say Violence, Drug Gangs, Commercial profit for crime, and many other things have gone through the roof in a system that generate
What am I being saved from? What is this Police "Barrier" that is in place that protects me and from what? From the drug Gangs that get 120.00 for a
small bag of Blow instead of 15.00???
Is this my protection? Assuring the price gouge makes the criminals rich enough to pay off the cops... while I can be arrested for smoking a Joint or
forgetting to pay my auto insurance for 10 days?
Where is the army of criminals... Real criminals in Jail?
The ones that are there cost us 10's of Thousands in Tax dollars and for all intents and purposes are enrolled in Crime School the entire time...
I was a Teen before all this in a long distant time...
the 80's lol
and I'll tell you per fact, yeah most social law wasn't enforced and most of my peers myself included grew up to be decently behaved people...
without the Anal Rape in Juvee the kids get today for a simple fist fight...
There is something...some great Anarachy I am protected from?
IF some REAL Criminal... a Mafioso or Gang member or other Thug of Power... wants me DEAD, they can come get me, kill me and the Police will not nor
can they do a damn thing, because the war on drugs has made the Criminals That Powerful
What the police protect me from is kids wanting to take my Insured Car for a joy ride, young adults trying to go out on Friday Night, Hippies, Guys
arguing with their wives and wannabe artists and skaters from the inner city... and speeders lol
and at this they are very effective, I never go out anymore hardly at night and wont get high on my balcony either and I just break up with women
rather than argue with them lol because that can be scary...
But a bunch of Hispanic guys still control the Dope trade around here and I or any cop that tries to stop them will be "removed"
This system fuels the true criminals against me while attacking voraciously with an army of 10's of thousands every step of the way...
I live in a world in which accusing someone of pedophilia if I witness it can get me a life ruining lawsuit if they can't prove it and the child's
testimony wouldn't be allowed because of age lol...
But smoke in a non smoking section of the subway...
I might find the cops bearing down on me... with guns and maybe die if I get "too over excited" by ...armed guys with guns and chains coming after
me for ...having a frackin smoke where a sign said not to lol...
So please... let the chaos of the rest for crime over run my life, that's what insurance is for... I'll be fine if some kid skates over my tulips or
I breathe some second hand smoke...
A cop who is handing out tickets to make the city money on quotas or chasing speeders through my streets or policing the "bar scene" to nail 2
idiots for having a fist fight is by and large a waste of my tax money... I'll cope with my neighbors noise myself and if we cn't handle it and
someone goes to the hospital, a night in jail and having to pay the bill and work time lost plus some injury is punishment enough where no one was
In the meantime... while hunting down rowdy youths on that platform...
A terrorist somewhere is building a bomb a little girl is being raped a drug gang is being made rich because i'd go to jail if I grew my own
On the side of Cops, You didn't go to the academy to break up fights between nitwits and crash parties... or to be part of some politicians brigade
of control of society
You became cops to directly go after scum bags... not people who already are victimizing themselves by being dummies... or childish.
take 2/3rds of cops off policing the 2/3rds of us who mostly likely will most hurt themselves anyway and need some mercy and go after Murderers and
Rapists and Child Abusers like the good ol days huh?
Maybe I can feel like handing out an Apple to the local beat cop again when i see him go by... maybe I can like the police...
But lol... not when they are hired to bring in kids downloading mp3s and force raids on local parks for kids drinking beer or set up cameras to arrest
speeders not look for truck bombs...
I mean, please
2/3 of crime is barely a crime at all... 3 strikes in Cali on petty theft? Life in Jail... how insane is all this...
Reminds me of the case of the kid in Cali who's 3rd offense was stealing a slice of Pizza...
Why are the cops chasing a stolen Pizza... if the kid was hungry for g-ds sake... let him go... he's a moron, putting a moron around criminals makes
a bigger criminal not a citizen
I mean... seriously, what were these kids doing? That warrants Guns drawn on an open Platform?
Where are My rights?
If they were doing something...acting out, jostling, running, spray cans anything SHORT of assault... why the heck do I want the cops to draw guns in
a place where might accidentally get shot over it unless someone was in genuine jeopardy?
How does that protect me?
Makes the system money but what am I being saved from?
#1 prison system in the world, Millions Jailed...should have a sign like McDonalds and rename it Crime School to boot
2/3 fully of the people in jail shouldn't be an environment where they become hardened criminals for real or die... no ones life or privacy should
have been risked to enslave them, zero threat to my family or to myself...
Imbeciles and arse holes will always be around, not much we can do about it...
but really they don't cost as much as 70 G a year loose in society the vast majority of them...
Singapore had the real way, for those that keep doing the same crap over and over again...cane them, but don't waste our time and money policing them
constantly, or ME by proxy when I don't bother anyone
You want to find crime?
Go looking ALL of US are criminals, in one way or another we all break the law practically everyday... that's because there are so many frickin laws
I don't say... "I'll do what I want"
There are things that need to be policed... just get some sense as to value vs potential catastrophe and need to Police
I ask again
What could they have been doing, that needed a guns drawn altercation in a public place... I'm sorry if they weren't kicking someones arse, at least
follow them off the location away from a crowd, report them... but, a whole affair of altercation?
Over What is my question here... what Society altering crime was being committed that warrants a police action in a public place, who was "SAVED"
I know someone died? who? what was Saved?
