I just wanted to throw something out there as food for thought for Law enforcement NOT on a federal or state level.
I was wondering, have you guys REALLY considered why the US is militarizing its police force? You ever ask yourselves why police departments that get
all this military hardware and extra training are PDs with a history of excessive force? Of coarse not.
You guys think you have a golden ticket and finally the establishment needs you so you are one of them. Untouchable.
What if, LOL, they see you as the scum they see us as? What if there is no coincidence to the increase in federal monitoring of PDs behind the scenes?
What if every thing is being cataloged and documented? Every instance of excessive force, abuse, or corruption no matter how benign it may seem to
you...what if its all being used to make a big case? One big reason for something bigger. A systematic response to a "systematic" problem the public
will support 1000%. You guys MUST hear of little things like absurd supervisors and rules being put in place that just make things more stressful and
difficult to do your job easily, or without walking the thin blue line.
What has changed? The population is MORE docile. Crime is down almost everywhere. Is there a reason why veterans are now seen as possible domestic
terrorists? How many of you guys are ex military? Hmmm. Never thought about it or is it denial?
What if all the stories of federal encroachment are true? Why is it that places that go under a federal investigation never seem to shake off that
level of monitoring or suspicion? YET, they do nothing really. Not really.
THEY WANT YOU GUYS TO ACT OUT. They are enabling you. They love having a valid excuse to move into your cities and PDs with the excuse of internal
review, checks and balances...because there is a "systematic" problem. LOL The population will eat that crap right up. QUICK. Maybe even out of spite.
Who is going to do anything for you when all your head people are no longer there to help? When unions are either sold out or powerless? Who is on
your side then? The law? LOL, the people? YOUR PEOPLE? You sure?
Let me tell you a story. My cities PD was like most in the US. Proud and self sufficient. They even went so far as to plant a grenade in the trunk of
one of those annoying elitist supervisors JUST because he wanted to humble the PD by making them all wear what was a female officers cap. Literally
tried to kill the guy and blew up his car over that and some other tell tale signs of federal weight pushing. He resigned the next day and all was
well. A couple decades later, you guys are pulling out your batteries from your cell phones at BBQs just to talk freely and "things have changed".
YET, and I will say it again, nothing is REALLY different. If you need to cover for your own you can. If you need to bend the rules you are allowed
to. If you need protection for making a human mistake you get it. WHAT? The federal government is being outsmarted by you? They dont care because they
"understand" you are one of them? LOL
So why all the effort for you guys to feel their presence? Why the sudden reassignments and "political" decisions to just make your lives more
difficult while enabling you to do more of what was once reserved for a special case?
Take for example the NYPD. What happened when the federal government stepped in after the 70´s and 80´s? Did the federal presence ever leave? Did
the NYPD ever get trusted enough again to get more of their own into the upper echelon of operations? Who got those promotions and positions of
authority? Was it the same sort of people who used to get it? Or was it the sort of people you guys would "take are of" like you "take care of your
own", just in the other direction of the receiving good end?
Most people are too dumb to even see it. I dont expect you guys to come to the realization that the next enemy and object of control ISNT the docile
and comfortable population. They have that already without breaking a sweat. YOU guys are next. There is a mountain of dirt and excuses to get you
exactly where your unions and sense of fraternity cant help. You wont even have the SLIGHTEST support from the populace. Think about that.
So, what is a militarized police force, vast infrastructure of internal review and planted federal agents in uniform next to you without making much
of a rumble all for?
I cant tell you. I honestly am not smart enough to spell it all out, and even if I did, would you believe me?
Ask your own guys. Talk to your captains, ESU units, all the guys who are getting shifted around. Ask why the surge in uniforms when crime is just
going down? Who is filling those uniforms? What type of people?
Talk among yourselves. Dont listen to some idiot over the internet. Just dont be surprised when you hear about budgets and overtime being used to
force you into things that if were proposed even 20 years ago would have everyone laughing their asses off and sending off the person making these
changes with a slap on the ass. Dont be surprised about the deals you will hear about where peoples careers were cut short or ruined over taking a
stand against the almighty federal bitch maker. Dont be surprised about the theories and the suspicions of who may be a federal agent in uniform
listening and playing along. Dont be surprised about the things they know because they must have been listening the whole time. Dont be surprised when
you find yourself betraying your boys because, well, you have a family... man /bro.
SO thats all. Just hearsay, BS and some random crap. Still...HAVE you asked yourselves WHY?
Carry on guys. Go back to your regular lives. This is all a bad dream. They need and love you. You are one of them.
Keep acting up.
