I'll line it out for you, but I get the feeling that your a Brit, and I shouldn't have to. My grandfather lived through Nazi Germany, he ended up
hiding in the Black Forest for the last three years of the war for making a comparison between Adolf Hitler, and a horses rear end... among other
things. What is happening now in the United States as far as police powers go, is what happened in 1930's Germany. I will not defend illegal
police actions, I will not defend corrupt police officers, and I find those that passively allow the corrupt officers to continue as guilty as the
corrupt ones. Nuremberg, and the trials of Nazis after that war leave no room for excuse for participation. NONE.
So, yeah, the thread may be Godwined, but there's no other way of putting it.
Corrupt police, and the allowance of corrupt police by the so-called 'good' police make things as they are. So now, just as my grandfather
experienced, I see fellow people defending the corruption.
