Face it people, as hard as it is to accept, the COPS have become our ENEMY; they are the front line of the governmental powers that view you as either
a milk cow for taxes or as a potential impediment to their plans.
Remember the next time you see one, the COPS have become the ENEMY of the people. They're not there to protect you, they're not there to help you;
they're there to keep you in line, completely.
Note: no responses from paid cop bloggers trying to justify and normalize their colleagues' brutality toward the people.
I want to reply to this. You know, during my time here I've done my share of cop bashing, for lack of a better term. It's hard not to, when you
see stories like this one and others you find here. More than once I've gotten up from my computer so angry that I wanted to take a baseball bat to
some cop after I saw a YouTube video. I thought it would be great if someone would make a website that posted the names and addresses of some of
these scumbags; the way they do convicted child molesters.
Then someone posted the thread on Sheriff Tony DeMeo.
I think it's pretty obvious that one of the main strategems of TPTB is divide and conquer. They want the police to see us as the enemy, and vice
versa. We are all largely the sum total of our experiences. Many of us have reasons to distrust the police, and they are trained to distrust us.
We need to change that, for all of our sakes.
Take the situation in the OP. Was the cop in the wrong? Yes, of course he was. Was the pastor in the right? Technically, yes, but (you knew there
had to be a but
) I think he could have handled the situation much better. He could have just as easily cooperated fully with the cop. Sure, he
didn't have to, but what did he have to lose? Cooperate, and EXPLAIN to the cop that, legally, you didn't have to cooperate. Don't be
confrontational about it, make a sincere effort to inform and educate. Explain that he could be opening himself up to a lawsuit if he did that to the
wrong person. It could cost him his job. Let him know that it is in his best interests to follow the law of the land to the letter.
We don't need more cops as enemies, we need them as friends and allies against those who would enslave us all.
If you can, try to find a cop and just talk to him or her. They are human beings, just like the rest of us. Take the time to listen to them, really
listen, without being judgemental. Tell them what you think, what you believe, but try to understand where they are coming from. They do have a
really tough job. I'm sure I couldn't do it.
This won't be effective with all cops. No question, some of them are better suited to be gang members than cops, but there are many out there who
became cops for the right reasons. Everyone needs a little guidance from time to time to put them back on the path they have chosen for their
Nobody really listens to someone they think is their enemy, so try not to be their enemy. Maybe, just maybe, a few words or ideas from you could be
the difference between a cop who believes the Constitution is the law of the land, and a cop who thinks his badge is the law of the land.
