Unfortunately for all the police hating seen on ATS most people still trust them and will assume if you're being beaten by cops you deserve it just
as they assume arrest equates to guilt.
If police only operated on threats 90% of our laws and regulations wouldnt exist.
The government operates on the promise of a population ruled by irrational fears. One that is willing to jump through as many mental/ethical/religious
hoops as necessary to justify their irrational fears.
The politicians, government, police, even teachers, labor-unions, etc.. are all too willing to capitalize on that irrational fear and even turn it
into direct threats for the promise of more power and money granted to them by the largely stupid public.
Tackle and beat Johnny for a plant.
Teachers demand you accept a tax increase or your kids will turn to crime.
Cops demand you accept a tax increase or your kids will be stolen or murdered.
Firefighters demand you accept a tax increase or your homes will burn.
City Hall demand you accept a tax increase or streets will cave into sinkholes, water mains will flood your lands, hobos will pester you for change,
oversight of corruption will lapse costing even more, their crony buddies wont get all the contracts, and the sun wont shine.
Everyone's taxed out and these groups want even more so the banks step in and graciously offer to loan operating funds.
Now you pay your taxes to the bank.
Now the police work for the bank.
Now the firefighters work for the bank.
Now the teachers work for the bank.
Irrational fear allows this to happen.
Police beating on someone is wonderfully illustrative of the grand pointlessness of this system. The benevolent protector slapping you around for
causing no harm and sending you a bill for the privilege.
