I was raised by my father to never trust the Police...
He was born and raised in Downtown Los Angeles which was covered by the Rampart division of the LAPD, the stories he told me growing up about seeing
friends unjustly beaten and even shot by the police always shocked me, as my father made it a point to work his ass off and move the hell out of
there as soon as he could.
We ended up in upper middle class neighbor hoods and growing up I never saw any police misconduct, but his stories always sat in the back of my mind,
he would tell me to always treat the police with respect but never trust them.
He grew up in that area in the 60's-80's so my point is this, Police abuse of power is nothing new, The internet is, so we see it now. What did
Senator Rockefeller say about the internet? Something like it was their biggest mistake letting it happen. This is why, injustice gets broadcast to
the entire world, the darkest corners of government get exposed, why do you think there is such a push for internet censorship and such? Its so they
can go back to the time when localized problems stayed local, where they could spin a situation to fit them.
Now with the internet it gets easier to see through all their BS, the Police are not their for your protection and it is becoming more and more
obvious with the militarization of police forces nation wide, where you have them training more like military it makes you wonder who the enemy they
are preparing to fight is... Its us, you and I, the every day citizens.
