It completely baffles me those on this site who not only willingly protect officers no matter what but those who do so when the officers are clearly,
through utterly empirical means, guilty of misconduct and abuse.
We're facing an epidemic that we the public have allowed to manifest because we choose to be complacent in law enforcements abilities to circumvent
around our rights. They are TRAINED to do this. They are trained to say certain things and to make certain suggestions that COMPLETELY circumvent
pretty much any form of right you can think of with any identifier in front of it; legal rights? Check. Constitutional rights? Check. Natural rights?
Check. Human rights? Check. Law enforcement across the country on all levels has worked to circumvent the law, and yet people want to defend their
ability to do so because they "protect us"? Even though there is legal precedent that says law enforcement has no duty to actually protect us? Is
there something in some water supplies I don't know about and if so, can I get some? It sounds like some potent stuff.
And no, don't take this as a cop hating post. I don't hate cops. I hate corrupt cops who don't actually protect and serve the people. There are
good cops out there, although every day the ratio of good cops verse bad cops tends to change in the favor of bad cops.
Really though, what the hell is going on with people who not only act complacent towards these actions but support, defend and rationalize these
actions? Are law enforcement officers all of the sudden above us in class structure, in which any and all actions they commit are holy and just?
Really, I want a cop, or someone who blindly defends them, to justify this sort of nonsense.
We're supposed to believe these individuals are merely those of us who choose to take on a burden to protect us...yet it seems there isn't much of a
burden in the end. Law enforcement has become nothing more than an organized crime syndicate who have been granted the blessings from our government.
In fact, the government has a hand in it when certain individuals within that government are in back room deals with private prison contractors,
setting up new quotas for the local beat cops to fulfill.
Who the hell is accountable here? People in law enforcement are afraid to blow the whistle out of fear of reprisal from their colleagues, the
government is perpetuating the matter as well as escalating it, and now society in masse can't do anything about it out of fear of being arrested for
doing something about it!
Honestly, it just reminds me of some KRS-One lyrics
Open up your eye
While you're checking out the boom-bap, check the exercise
Take the word "overseer," like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew for example
Officer, Officer, Officer, Officer!
Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity?
Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patroling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you're doing
The officer will pull you over just when he's pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest!
