I have been busy and I haven't had the chance to respond to this thread. But I have a few minutes at the moment and I would like to make a few
(1). Most and I say MOST (not just a few bad apples) officers have the attitude that they are superior, that they are my father or mother figure and
that me as a citizen are their child and that I should do as they say and have total submission toward their higher presence or else I shall be
arrested for what ever reason that they might chose no matter how petty, no matter how stupid and simple. In essence I would have harmed nobody nor
done anything wrong yet they could and will arrest me even if they knew I would just be released on my own reconditeness without charge by the Judge
the very next morning. They do this because they know you know that they can do this and that it would if nothing more be a great inconvenience to
said person. And that is their tool that they use to get me or you to submit to their "authority" (to their more dominate personality or more
appropriately their "belief" that they are your god so it seems ).
(2). Cops make arrests, brutalize, intimidate and harass out of personal anger of that person. I mean not just for some scumbag crack dealer. But
for anyone that would stand up to their intimidation tactics, anyone that would question their "superiority". Take a look at the many cases of people
that knew their rights so well and let the cops know (in legal terms) that they were doing nothing wrong and that their arrest would be illegal and
unjustified, and yet the cop just gets angry and arrests the person out of frustration and ignorance.
(3) When a cop does get caught doing vial injustice as another ATSer pointed out this injustice is a tenfold injustice no mater what it is, being
that they are the very people we entrust to protect us, they should be held accountable for their actions at at least double what the normal standard
is for citizens.
(4) Even the good cops stick up for the bad cops in soooo many situations. This is a known fact. In my opinion all the cops that attempt to at the
minimum just remain quiet about a situation of accusation against their fellow cop is equally guilty of said situation. They are after all the very
people that we appoint to uphold justice.
(5) It appears to me in Florida (and I would imagine in the rest of the "police states") it has become a runaway effect with the
arrest,ticket/revenue depended upon. In other wards the state gets used to depending upon the revenue gained by tickets and probation. and they soon
begin demanding more of this revenue as the unchecked government overspends more and more. The result is the higher officials putting more and more
pressure on the people that do the actual collecting of revenue (namely in this case the cops). And thus inevitably the cops become more and more
aggressive and begin to overstep their bounds (the bounds being our rights in most cases) and thats when their job turns into not a public service but
a government service.
I really hope people read all of what I have just wrote and at least try to understand what I am trying to say......Don't get this OP and this post
twisted up. This is not an anti-cop thread. This is not an anti-authority thread. This is not an anti-government thread. This thread is about what I
have mentioned in the OP and the above post and being that that is the subject matter at hand (being that that is the OP) then I suggest all posts
pertaining to this OP suggesting that this OP is anti-cop or anti-government or anti-authority should be completely ignored if not removed by the
