I do not agree with any of that. The US is no longer the land of the free and home of the brave. It is a land of the repressed and home of the scared.
I alone can not change this sad reality.
There are still good cops who respect the Constitution. Most of them are older. It seems like the younger generation of cops have been brainwashed and
have no idea what their job used to be about. They are pressured from the superiors to write as many citations as possible, make as many arrest as
possible and when making an arrest add as many charges they can come up with. They can get away with brutality because their fellow officers will look
the other way, if another officer protests he or she will get fired. That said they do not want to actually pursue any criminals, too much work. Its
much easier to arrest a pothead or an addict with Rx pills and charge them with one felony per pill.
The for profit prison is completely unacceptable. Violent criminals, thieves, rapists get a slap on the wrist. Grow a certain plant that does no harm
to anyone and face many years in prison, unknowingly get your driver's license suspended and caught driving and you will do some time. The justice
system is beyond broken and its goes all the way to the top of the government. They do not want to fix it. Prison labor is a commodity that can be
sold. Potheads and drug addicts make much better slaves than violent criminals.
The problem is too many citizens are blind, scared, and stupid. They justify the growing police force because it makes them feel safe they live boring
lives that consist of going to work, coming home and absorbing the trash that the TV and MSM puts out. They are scared of their own shadow. They
believe the propaganda. They justify the actions because they are unable to pull the wool off their eyes.
It will only get worse and the US is on the verge of becoming a total police state. Not because of the police, because of the policies in place and
ignorance of the masses. Not enough people have the balls to stand up against it.
